Yesterday’s revelation of an op ed piece in the New York Times by an anonymous “senior White House aide” was headlined: “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration.” The second line explained, “I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”
It was another hit piece, following the 300 plus newspapers editorializing against him; Omarosa’s book; and the Bob Woodward book, excerpted in the Washington Post.
They’ve been slamming Trump continually. Their rage has been unleashed. The Deep State has married the Deep Media in a way we haven’t seen before.
Keep in mind that all of this is not news. It’s manufactured stuff. We haven’t learned any facts. We haven’t been given names of accusers. It’s all hearsay that is masquerading as news. This is one of their favorite tactics, because people have forgotten what facts are after decades of opinion being passed off as news.
The person who did it doesn’t really care about honor as he says he does. If he did, he wouldn’t have broken the laws concerning disclosure. He would openly make accusations, if he could back them up. I was struck in reading the piece how completely it lacked examples of Trump’s “worst inclinations,” “misguided impulses,” “whims,” “rants,” etc. Tell us what they are, coward. What didn’t he know? What errors has Trump made? I’m just supposed to take his word on it, eh?
Even Leftist Glenn Greenwald has objected to this. He tweeted, “The irony in the op-ed from the NYT’s anonymous WH coward is glaring and massive: s/he accuses Trump of being ‘anti-democratic’ while boasting of membership in an unelected cabal that covertly imposes their own ideology with zero democratic accountability, mandate or transparency.”
Why all this now, aside from the nearness of the midterm elections?
Someone at the Conservative Treehouse suggested, “Also consider the possible New York Times timing. It sounds like release of the full, unredacted Carter Page FISA application is imminent. This is the same document James Wolfe leaked to Ali Watkins at the New York Times. As themarketswork laid out so well, it’s pretty clear Watkins got a full unredacted copy. So we may see things the New York Times sat on … just after they run this hit piece, which could be like a torpedo to the bow of the complicit media. It all depends on that FISA getting released the public (unredacted) and what’s in it of course. But with so many who have seen it pushing Trump to release it you have to believe there’s something there.”
I think he’s nailed it.
But there are probably other reasons, too.
Today some $200 billion tariffs get put on China. There are people in the Swamp who have China’s and their own interests above their country’s. They don’t want to see this happen. China already pays them and lobbyists, and probably people in the media to look after their interests. I found it noteworthy that anonymous tipped his hand on this issue in his screed.
He says early in the article, “Although he was elected as a Republican, the president shows little affinity for ideals long espoused by conservatives: free minds, free markets and free people…President Trump’s impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic.”
Actually, President Trump has signaled that he’d like to get away from tariffs completely. What could be more free trade than that?
Then there’s the fact that he’s winning in most areas. He’s boosted the economy, strengthened our hand in foreign policy, got business going.
He’s gotten an excellent Supreme Court Justice appointed and another one about to be confirmed shortly.
He’s gotten a record high in black approval.
We’re finding out every day, via the Russia collusion hoax, that the unelected Deep State is trying to rule the nation.
And maybe the poll numbers for the Democrats are worse than we’re being told.
This attempt is meant to demoralize the Republican base, too.
Keep in mind, though, that this fight has to happen. It was always going to be brutal and ugly. For decades we didn’t even know the Deep State existed. They won’t give up without a big fight. At least we’re fighting now. That’s half the battle.
The Deep State/Democrats/Liberal media is cornered. Like a wolverine, they’re going to be ferocious.
They haven’t finished with their coordinated plan. But hang on, we’ll get there in the end.
