The coup has failed, but continues

The coup has failed, but continues

The Democrat and media tactics and goal posts are shifting after the Mueller finding of no collusion, but the goal of unwinding the 2016 election remains.

http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2017/01/politics/trump-inauguration-gigapixel/

Donald Trump has been completely exonerated of allegations he or his campaign colluded, conspired or cooperated with the Russians to interfere in the U.S. 2016 presidential election.

Robert Mueller and his team couldn’t find evidence of collusion, but not for lack of trying:

In the report, the Special Counsel noted that, in completing his investigation, he employed 19 lawyers who were assisted by a team of approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants, and other professional staff. The Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, issued almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, made 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.

Rather than vindicating the integrity of the Mueller investigation, the finding of no collusion demonstrates the thoroughly dishonest political and media motivations which launched the accusations of collusion dating back at least to the summer of 2016.

The 2016 political and media attempt to prevent Trump from becoming president based on false accusations of Russia collusion failed. Then the attacks shifted to the Electoral College, and attempt to intimidate electors based on Russia collusion allegations:

… a new and thoroughly dishonest media narrative developed — that Trump could not be allowed to take office because Russia “hacked the election.”

By hacked the election, they don’t mean that the vote count was corrupted, but that alleged Russian hacking of the DNC and John Podesta influenced the outcome. A variation on that theme is that Trump has some potential Russian connection that makes him potentially disloyal to the United States.

The claim is that this new information is so serious post-election, that the Electors must fulfill some alleged duty to protect the country from Trump. Call that Operation Flip the Electors, Part Two.

None of these allegations, however, are new. They were all aired to and considered by the voters. Here are just a tiny fraction of the major media headlines BEFORE the election:

The voters took into account the swarm of accusations against Trump and Hillary, and elected him. Losing sucks, I get it, but it’s not an excuse to create a constitutional crisis and uniquely destructive result of the Electors flipping the election to Hillary, or even to the House.

Then the action shifted to the FBI-CNN set up to leak the Steele Dossier. Then a thousand corrupt media spins bloomed.

It was what I called a “Russia Collusion” Media PSYOPs perpetrated by The Manchurian Media to create non-stop Russia collusion news cycles. As one would fall by the wayside, another would arise.

It was a fraud from the start, launched by the Clinton campaign and DNC through Fusion GPS and the Steele Dossier, among others. Once the election was over, it was nothing short of a The Slow-Motion Coup d’Etat:

Since the election there has been an unprecedented attempt to unwind the election result. Events have accelerated on several fronts lately with attempts from outside and within to paralyze the Trump administration.

What started as a collective media freakout on Election Night 2016 quickly progressed to an unprecedented attempt to intimidate Electors into changing their votes. Some Democrats announced, even before Trump took office, plans to impeach him, and Democrat politicians fed media-driven Russia collusion conspiracy theories for which they knew there was no evidence.

Chuck Schumer, for example, used the alleged fact of Donald Trump being under FBI investigation as an argument against confirming Neal Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, even though Schumer (but not the public) knew from intelligence briefings that Trump was not personally under investigation.

All the while, the permanent bureaucracy, particularly in the intelligence community, started an unending and almost daily series of leaks meant to paralyze the administration….

The purpose in all this has been to freeze and paralyze the Trump administration. If Trump could not be prevented from taking office, and cannot be physically removed from office, he will be prevented from functioning as president.

The Mueller Report puts the lie to two years of this attempted coup.

But don’t think it’s going to stop. Already the tactics and goal posts are shifting. Now it’s not Russia collusion that’s paramount, it’s obstruction of justice in the form of Trump allegedly obstructing the Mueller investigation. But Mueller never reached the conclusion that an obstruction crime was committed, and a criminal obstruction charge was rejected as unjustified not only by AG William Barr but also by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein. Remember, it was Rosenstein who was considered so vital by Democrats to preserve the integrity of the Mueller investigation.

Democrats already are promising more investigations. The goal is to continue the slow-motion coup.

That coup will take place outside D.C. as well, with politically motivated prosecutors examining every aspect of Trumps’ business past looking for crimes:

“Nearly every organization Trump has run over the past decade remains under investigation by state or federal authorities, and he is mired in a variety of civil litigation.”

So Trump survived the coup, but the coup continues.

Comments

It was only a flesh wound.

It is now time to begin the indictments, trials, and convictions of all involved in this coup attempt. A failure to do so will be the final undoing of the Rule of Law in this country.

Do not forget that the FISA abuse likely runs uphill right to the desk of Chief Justice Roberts.

    Until people start going to jail, nothing will change.

    Elzorro in reply to OldNuc. | March 25, 2019 at 7:45 am

    Comey is priority one. He will be the first to go down, thus eliminating the ridiculous obstruction meme and trapping the media and democrats.

    MarkS in reply to OldNuc. | March 25, 2019 at 8:06 am

    Never gonna happen! I don’t believe that the DOJ’s corruption began when Obama took office, but goes back to include Barr’s prior term and as such any who might deserve prosecution know which skeletons are in Barr’s closet and will use that information to keep the AG in line!

      MattMusson in reply to MarkS. | March 25, 2019 at 8:30 am

      Maybe with other Presidents. But, with Donald Trump you have to remember there is an entire Chapter in the Art of the Deal that is basically about REVENGE.

    Bisley in reply to OldNuc. | March 25, 2019 at 11:08 am

    It would take a competent Attorney General who actually believes in the rule of law, and intends to force it on government. I doubt that there is one.

“’tis but a scratch.”

    Or, as Churchill observed: “Man often stumbles upon the truth. But he is usually able to pick himself up and carry on as if nothing happened.”

Robert Mueller fade to black, John Huber entrance stage right.

    Jackie in reply to Ironman. | March 25, 2019 at 5:12 am

    Huber has not interviewed a single witness. Has he empaneled a Grand Jury in Idaho? Huber was put in by Sessions to kill the investigation into FBI corruption. Sessions was probably working for Trump’s enemies.

These are the guys that want to confiscate all of our guns…

It wouldn’t be so suspicious if they weren’t advocating for the elimination of the electoral college and extending the size of the Supreme Court. With a new President and a stuffed court, the constitution itself isn’t safe.

MSM and Dems: There has got to be a stone left unturned somewhere?

Trump: Yup. That would be Roger Stone, whom you failed to turn over.

Now that the Mueller investigation didn’t find anything against Trump, the Democratic investigators in the House will go into high gear. They will interrogate everyone who ever knew Trump, and they’ll try to indict all of them if they even find an unpaid parking ticket.

We can expect to hear about possible payments to porno actresses until we know every detail. What is that term for a woman who has sex and then wants money for it? We can expect them to investigate every expense of Trump’s campaign, and they will try to gain intel to use against him in the 2020 campaign. They will look at every meal he ever ate while visiting a foreign country and try to make a case that the free meal violates the emoluments clause.

I wonder how Trump will respond. He might tell everyone in his administration to refuse the subpoenas, citing Executive Privilege. That would make for an interesting fight.

    Milhouse in reply to OldProf2. | March 25, 2019 at 5:49 am

    They will look at every meal he ever ate while visiting a foreign country and try to make a case that the free meal violates the emoluments clause.

    Except that that clause doesn’t apply to the president.

    (Oh, and even if it did the meal would have to have been provided by a foreign government. And if such meals did count as emoluments then every government official to whom the clause does apply, and who’s been on a delegation or mission to another country, would be in trouble.)

      VaGentleman in reply to Milhouse. | March 25, 2019 at 6:01 am

      If he had Russian dressing with his salad, or if his waiter was named some form of John (which is Ivan in Russian), it will apply.

      (Maybe a bit too literal??)

      Elzorro in reply to Milhouse. | March 25, 2019 at 7:22 am

      The alleged obstructed person…Comey…is probably under investigation for his role in the coup and many other crimes, at a minimum by the IG. Charging the POTUS would create The Mother of all Conflicts of interest. Again, obstructing a crime in progress is a duty, as will become clear when Comey is fanally taken down.

    Elzorro in reply to OldProf2. | March 25, 2019 at 7:48 am

    He will take down Comey,,,,checkmate.

Trump proved that he was viable in a business climate. Now, it is established that he is viable in a political climate. This may well be a turning point for American and allied people and interests.

    iconotastic in reply to n.n. | March 25, 2019 at 11:55 am

    It has been a long time since I witnessed a Republican president actually fighting back. Hopefully one legacy of President Trump will be encouraging more fighters to run for office.

Who follows through with the unfinished prosecutions?

I still don’t understand how or why the election should be invalidated because the Democrats’ poor security allowed someone, perhaps even the Russians, access to information which put them and their candidate in a bad light.

Remember, the main thrust of the leak was how Hillary and her people had cheated against Bernie in the primaries. The release of information like that sounds like normal American politics to me, and in my opinion it hardly rises to the level of criminality seen with Hillary’s private email server and the Uranium One deal.

    Milhouse in reply to CorkyAgain. | March 25, 2019 at 5:50 am

    Nobody claims the election could be invalidated no matter what Mueller found.

      rabidfox in reply to Milhouse. | March 25, 2019 at 4:49 pm

      You weren’t listening to that “after we take out Trump and Pence, Pelosi be President and she can nominate Hillary as her VP. Then she’ll resign leaving Hillary as President.” Nonsense, of course, but it was out there

The best defense is a good offense.

Time to turn the investigation onto obama, clinton, schiff, wassermanshultz, etc.

DO IT, MR. BARR!

Shouldn’t someone be asking the dems who claim they have evidence: Did you share it with the SC’s investigation?

If so, in the interests of transparency, what was the evidence?

If not, why didn’t you share it? Again, in the interests of transparency, what was the evidence?

Feet, meet fire.

Addressing the obstuction meme the leftist have desperately embarked upon. It is based on Comeys firing and interfearing with federal process. However Comey was involved in a criminal conspiracy against the United States and they know it. A POTUS obstructing a crime in progress is a virtue. This will come out when Comey is finally arrested and he will be. I say give these fools more rope. Trump will obliterate them and the whole corrupt hive.

Perhaps someone can explain how, finding no evidence of collusion (which in and of itself is not a crime) and insufficient evidence of obstruction to draw a conclusion, the Independent counsel can state that that this is anything other than that this is anything other than a complete exoneration.

The mentally unstable Loony Left still won’t let it go.

Peasepudding | March 25, 2019 at 8:20 am

They’ll never give up. We are witnessing the largest, most well funded, media-driven conspiracy theory ever perpetrated upon the American people. It makes the Red Scare look like an amateur hack job.

I am really worried about the sanity of the Dems! This is not meant to be funny but serious. Not a hint of collusion, Trump cooperated fully with Mueller, and they want to yell “Obstruction”? What was there to obstruct??? Their innocence??

    DuxRedux in reply to Hawk. | March 25, 2019 at 9:23 am

    So much comes to mind – beyond lip service:

    Cornered rats.

    Scorched earth.

    Propaganda.

    Lies, greed, and power-mongering.

    Never underestimate the stupidity of the masses.

    And it’s far from over.

The more the Democrats continue to investigate and hurl more smears at President, the better the chances of the GOP to retake the House, and keep the Presidency and the Senate.

My money is on all 3.

I don’t trust Huber or Horowitz to bring to perps of this travesty to justice.

We need a new Special Counsel, who is a criminal defense lawyer who has never worked with the DOJ, to investigate the source and continuity of this scam.

So leftists in US government and media complex conspire with globalist/Marxist in Britain and Russia; claim Right wing, anti-globalist/Marxist candidate in US “Colluded” with said Marxist government of Russia to steal the election from the leftist/globalist Democrat candidate and then get leftist intelligence community in US government to investigate said Right wing anit-globalist for two years until he is cleared by actual evidence (Lack of evidence). Is anyone else’s head spinning yet how impossible this seems and yet is what happened. Never, ever give up your constitutional rights to anything.
