I have to believe in my ace of heart of hearts, that one of the sharpest minds on the planet has been orchestrating his own version of ‘Russian Roulette’ since he began his descent atop his own escalator at Trump Tower back in June of 2015. He absolutely knew what he was getting into – the good, the bad, and the downright ugly.
Unfortunately that’s the caveat of entering politics in this day and age of ‘last man standing wins.’ The age of presidential collegiality disappeared from view a long long time ago, withering more into a ‘puppet on a string’ than a Rambo freedom fighter.
Enter into the arena the ace of hearts – Donald J. Trump, We the People’s freedom fighter.
For what he inherited, I’m guessing he said to himself that he only has a certain amount of time to clean this mess up once and for all, ace it and have done with it.
Rather than attempt to drain the swamp in its entirety, take it one step at a time, albeit it, to put the grand plan in place before setting forth on its implementation. Fast-forward to where we are today and I would posit that he is right on schedule with his original plan of action.
Let me take you to the latest from ‘sundance’ over at Conservative Treehouse – an awesome update from yesterday’s entry (and if you haven’t been watching Hannity and his investigative terriers in regards to this, you’ve missed a whole chapter or two in how to ace investigative corroboration!) …
Most of the political focus regarding the “wear a wire” comments from Rod Rosenstein have focused on his intentions, serious or not. [Fox News – Daily Caller] However, seemingly, and conveniently, overlooked amid the analysis is the testimony from James Baker about the structure of the underlying conversation being dead serious.
Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was clearly the fulcrum of the effort to weaponize the FBI intelligence apparatus to take down candidate Trump, President-Elect Trump and then President Trump through a multitude of corrupt schemes and coordinated plans. Not much about this intention remains hidden. It is the testimony from James Baker to congress that is now highlighting the bigger picture.
Team McCabe consists of multiple defenders who were part of the larger soft-coup and have a self-interest in distracting the agregate public from the story. The public hits against DAG Rod Rosenstein are symptomatic of the team’s current objectives.
As John Solomon writes about the testimony of former FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker, he is the first to look beyond the distracting “wiretap comments” and focus on the seriousness of the bigger picture:
(Via The Hill) […] Baker’s story lays bare an extraordinary conversation in which at least some senior FBI officials thought it within their purview to try to capture the president on tape and then go to the president’s own Cabinet secretaries, hoping to persuade the senior leaders of the administration to remove the president from power.
Even more extraordinary is the timing of such discussions: They occurred, according to Baker’s account, in the window around the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Could it be that the leaders of a wounded, stunned FBI were seeking retribution for their boss’s firing with a secret recording operation?
I doubt this is the power that Congress intended to be exercised when it created the FBI a century ago, or the circumstances in which the authors of the 25th Amendment imagined a president’s removal could be engineered.
This wasn’t a president who was incapacitated at the time. He was fully exercising his powers — but in a way the FBI leadership did not like. (read more)
John Solomon’s outline of Baker’s testimony aligns with what he know of the structural intent of the soft-coup plotters; and we don’t just have to take James Baker’s word for it.
The extent to which Rod Rosenstein was a willing or unwilling participant; or whether he was considered a useful tool by the plotting team; is an unknown variable. At times it appears the Deputy AG is as much complicit in the cover-up as the primary plotters themselves; as in the example of his request to President Trump to halt the declassification directive. However, this could also be due to Rosenstein’s sense of guilt and self-interest.

Under the circumstances, you have to reckon that Rosenstein kept his head down, put his finger up, and went the opposite way the wind was blowing (after all, career DOJ) – probably thinking he might get appointed judge on some Federal Court. On the other hand We the People could aver that he is trapped and looking at an ace for a way out.
Declassification blows everything up, but could also be another obstruction con for the DemoMarxists to run; smart move to let Horowitz look at it first, but – and a big but – the truth has to come out and soon.
As a wrap, it doesn’t take a genius to think that our warrior-president is keeping Rod Rosenstein around because he has 1) the goods on him; 2) knowing that Rosenstein signed off on bogus FISA warrants; and by 3) appointing Mueller on phony pretenses. Rosenstein doesn’t want these sins made public under any circumstances, so the president has kindly requested RR to clean up the mess he created by getting Mueller to finish up and go away. RR is definitely more useful to president Trump on the job than were he fired.
And that’s what ‘sundance’ said. Brilliant on all fronts!
Time to take today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump and crew – MAGA ace!
