The Silent Coup: America in Crisis

Sean Hannity calls it an alignment of five powerful forces to destroy the Trump presidency. More directly and more accurately, Rush Limbaugh calls the smearing of President Donald Trump a silent coup. What it is is America in Crisis. Where is the light? Is it with Trump or with his enemies?

This isn’t all the doing of a biased news media. Consider, for instance, the naming of the special counsel.

After all, who counseled the president to rescind the firing of Rosenstein? Who recommended Rosenstein as Trump’s nominee for the Deputy Attorney General? That vote did not need to be 94-6. Unless there were gang-of-eight like traitors among the GOP senators, Trump could have confirmed an ally at 52-48.

Who counseled Sessions to recuse himself from the Russian counter intelligence operation and, hence, transfer the authority to appoint a special counsel to Rosenstein? An enemy that’s who. An enemy who is hidden in darkness at the highest levels of government, an enemy who wins by deception.

If the alignment of anti-Trump forces can name a special counsel to investigate a crime of which there is not a shred of evidence, what’s next?

Speaking of deception, even in this era of a culture without conscience, the worthless American media seem to be corrupted by more than simple political ideology. In an era where social media and streaming videos are ascendant in mass communication, it must be a soul wrenching challenge to make the bottom line of big news corporation. How difficult is it to purchase the American propaganda machines at CNN or NBC?

Purchased or simply insane, its easy to tell whether the News Media is or is not on the side of the angels. Consider the lies they told just a single week:

  • Trump Eases Russia Sanctions
  • Trump Threatened To Invade Mexico
  • Iraqi Mother Dies While Waiting From Trump’s “Muslim Ban”
  • Judge Gorsuch Started A “Fascism Club” In High School
  • Trump Renamed “Black History Month” To “African American History Month”
  • Trump Setting Up A Supreme Court “Contest” Between Judges

Here’s the line up of breaking lies told this week:

  • Comey was fired after requesting more funding for the Russia investigation. (Dispelled by Acting FBI Director McCabe)
  • Trump revealed highly classified material to the Russians. Dispelled by General McMaster.
  • Trump told Ambassador Labrov that Comey was a loon and was fired to relieve the pressure of the Russia (Dispelled by Labrov himself.)

While fewer in number, these lies are more incendiary and despicable. Generally, the lips of the guardians of light are not open running sewers of lies, filth, deception and slander. That’s the other guys.

Genuine American patriots can try to evaluate the intricacies of how the deep state with its vast surveillance powers interacts with crony-capitalist mega corporations and the bankers who float the cumulative debt of all of Western civilization. But rather than getting lost in the weeds, most patriots simply see the forest. They know what this coup looks like.

On one side there are the dear leaders of the American propaganda outlets: Barrack Husein Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Barrack Obama bowed to the Saudi King and Hillary wore a headscarf. Barrack Obama gave billions of dollars to the world’s leading sponsor of terror, an ally of Russia. Hillary Clinton, in exchange for her own personal aggrandizement, gave 20% of America’s Uranium to a Russian corporation.

On the other side of the coup is President Trump, and, with him, the first lady. Trump bows to no foreign power, and every American knows it. He paid for his own primary campaign and takes no salary for serving as a United States President. If he’s Russian, we’re all Russians.

Nor will we see the first lady of the United States bow before Sharia law. Nor will Trump destabilize the Middle East to broker personal money making schemes while choosing a terrorist monstrosity like ISIS as the counterpoint to a Syrian dictator. Instead, President Trump brings home a 110 billion dollar deal with Saudi Arabia that strengthens an enemy of Iran and strengthens the heartland of the United States.

It’s just that simple. On which side of the coup is the constitutional republic of the United States of America? Now, on which side of the coup are unelected, secretive powers that seek to undermine or destroy this last best hope for mankind?

The Importance of the Filibuster and Other Obscene Jokes

There’s no way out of this filibuster said the Joker to the Thief. I, for one, loved the way McConnell told his obscene jokes about the Senate filibuster. Did you see him say: “There is an overwhelming majority, on a bipartisan basis, not interested in changing the way the Senate operates on the legislative calendar”? And he said it with a straight face! Of course there is a broad bipartisan majority; the broadest part being comprised of 48 fat Democratic obstructionist senators who despise liberty more than conservatives hate Marxism.

Then, when the Thief, Chuckie Schumer, responded so succinctly, “I think the idea of using the nuclear option for legislative stuff is pretty much dead,” we could hear his silent, rasping, chuckle: Rats feet on splintered glass in the back allies of K-Street.

Oh, but that joker McConnell. Do you know what he said next? He said getting rid of the 60 vote push-button filibuster would “fundamentally change the way the Senate has worked for a very long time.” Yea, he actually said the Senate worked. Mitch McConnell live! You can’t beat that with a stick.

…No, no, you can’t. That hasn’t been done since Democratic Senator Preston Brooks beat Republican Abolitionist Charles Sumner in 1856. That happened way before the push-button filibuster was even born,  proving that the antiquity of a Senate tradition is not evidence of its beneficial character. Besides, McConnell’s self-effacing humor is so endearing. Did you know McConnell himself is older than the push-button filibuster? Did you hear him, “for a VERY LONG time…” That McConnell’s a rip.

Anyhow, the current tradition of the gentleman’s filibuster has only been around since the U.S. Senate revised Rule 22 in 1975. From that time forward, no senator needed to speak for a filibuster to be in force. Today, one simply files a motion. Since 1975, then, a filibuster has no longer been a filibuster, a simple abuse of the constitutional liberty of free speech; instead, it has become simply an abuse of the constitution. Rule 22’s revision made it slightly easier to attain cloture and move legislation, but Rule 22 made it much, much easier to enact a filibuster. It is not surprising, then, that since the enactment of Rule 22, the number of filibusters has sky-rocketed.

You know what’s interesting? A comparison between the rise in the national debt and the rise in the use of the 1975 “gentleman’s” filibuster!

Yea, the Senate “works.” Oh, that is rich, and McConnell tells it so well. That kindly, silly, old, supercilious joker. I know the thieves of K-Street get it. It’ll just be a shame when McConnell retires.
