Trump Coup Attempt Must Be Stopped — The powerful establishment propagandists are in a joyous tizzy after yesterday’s (Aug. 22) news that a former Trump attorney confessed to “crimes” including a payoff to a pair of former temporary liaisons, and that his ex-temporary campaign manager was found guilty of cheating on his taxes, filing false banking statements and hiding a foreign bank account.
Regarding ex-campaign manager Paul Manfort’s crimes, all occurred before he worked for Trump. Most suspect that what he did was SOP among Washington swampers and that Manfort was pursued only because of his transitory connection to The Donald.
Regarding ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, he pleaded to five counts of tax evasion; one count of making false statements to a financial institution; one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporation contribution; and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate.
The latter two involve Trump and are related to $130,000 and $150,000 obtained respectively by adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal to keep quiet about the one or few night stands the floozies had with the billionaire playboy a decade-plus ago.
Trump probably did not the break the law but if he did it was merely a technicality that in the past was handled with fines.
In the early 1990s, I remember seeing a tabloid cover in a supermarket featuring Marla Maples and “Trump” in big letters in a headline of a story concerning the breakup of his first marriage.
I remember thinking what an ass.
In the spring 0f 2015, I head that he was running for president and I laughed.
That summer I was talking to some working class folk and they brought up his candidacy without prompt. They were enthusiastic. I suspected that for the first time in their lives a politician got them excited. I started listening to Trump. He was saying things nobody else was especially regarding immigration and trade. He didn’t waver despite mocking by our self-proclaimed betters. He didn’t waver on other matters that I had long cared about. I got on the train and I’m not getting off.
This investigation is nothing more than a coup attempt. It is not about the rule of law. Where was the anger by the voices of the establishment when a secretary of state set up a private email server in violation of the law? Endangering national security is a whole lot bigger deal than paying off a floozy. Where was the outraged reporting on former Secretary of State John Kerry’s meeting with Iranians back in May? Where was the headlines on Iran’s threat a few weeks later to release the names of Western politicians who took bribes from them?
President Trump has revealed that sick and evil people wield great power in our government and media. These aren’t people with just different ideas about obtaining the same end. These are people who are evil as in greedy, cruel and indifferent to suffering. These are calloused liars who see others as mere objects.
Trump and his team are the bulwark against them.
I am not going to allow those who practice the tactics of Saul Alinsky to use my values against me.
God bless President Trump.
