The Enemies Trump Made, The Friends He Kept

The Enemies Trump Made, The Friends He Kept

By Joe Guzzardi

In 1924, Richard L. Simon and M. Lincoln Schuster founded what is today America’s third largest publishing company. Simon & Schuster’s first foray into publishing was crossword puzzle books. Simon’s aunt was a crossword puzzle enthusiast, so the newly formed company wisely decided to fill the nation’s puzzle book void. Nearly a century later, Simon & Schuster made the curious, from a corporate perspective, woke decision to cancel Sen. Josh Hawley’s book, “The Tyranny of Big Tech,” for what the company described as “his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom.” Stated more precisely, Simon & Schuster objects to Hawley’s support of President Trump, and indirectly charged him with inciting the Washington, D.C. riots.

The Enemies Trump Made, The Friends He Kept

Hawley is one of 75 million Americans who have well-founded doubts about the November election’s validity, and his book’s topic – Silicon Valley’s censorship of other-than-woke opinions that now include President Trump permanently – troubles Americans. Simon & Schuster, apparently, would rather silence Hawley than publish a book that would appeal to a large chunk of 75 million potential book-buyers. Above all, Congress, the media, Silicon Valley and corporate America’s goal is to relentlessly malign the not-so-suddenly friendless President Trump who, in his eyes, has been abandoned by Vice President Mike Pence, his three Supreme Court appointees, congressional Republicans, his Attorney General and others.

For all the preaching that the incoming Biden administration spouts about moving on and uniting America, its actions belie its rhetoric. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to impeach or use the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office. The latter failed. If Congress’ impeachment also fails, the never-Trumpers’ wishful thinking goal then becomes to impeach the president after he leaves office, which the Constitution doesn’t permit, or perhaps to rely on the New York district attorney’s office to uncover financial crimes the Trump Organization committed.

In the meantime, President-elect Biden is ignoring the nation’s disaffected 75 million, a curious strategy for a candidate who won, perhaps fraudulently, key swing states by the narrowest margins. As for the reported 80 million that voted for the Biden-Harris ticket, most of them cast anti-Trump rather than pro-Biden ballots. With the mid-term 2022 election just 22 months away and with President Trump increasingly unlikely to make a Grover Cleveland-like bid to become the second president elected to nonconsecutive terms, a significant portion of the 80 million will have their eyes firmly focused on the incoming administration’s agenda.

Immediately facing the newly inaugurated President Biden will be his student debt and immigration pledges. During his campaign, Biden promised to cancel up to $10,000 in student debt, which exceeds $1.5 trillion outstanding, and to extend the COVID-related payment pause scheduled to expire this month. But Pelosi, Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) want the debt forgiveness tab increased ‘‘with a pen” to $50,000, and thereby let taxpayers absorb the bill. Many Americans perceive waiving student loan obligations as abdicating individual responsibility and grossly unfair to students and parents who played by the rules and paid off their debt as it came due. A better solution: let the rolling-in-dough universities who encouraged student indebtedness take the hit.

On immigration, President-elect Biden already faces intense pressure to deliver on his vow to introduce an amnesty bill within his first 100 days in office. With Democrats controlling all three government branches, amnesty may look like a no-brainer, but history says differently. In 2008, President Obama had a Democratic-controlled Congress, but amnesty, toxic as always, went nowhere. And Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA, was defeated legislatively countless times before President Obama issued an Executive Branch Memorandum to temporarily legalize the program. Passing any form of amnesty is a tough nut.

President Trump had many shortcomings, including his abrasive personality. Presidents Clinton, Bush 43 and Obama were smoother, but elitist. Voters wearied of the smooth talkers’ globalist agendas and – ergo – the Trump presidency. Democrats would love to remove President Trump so that he will be barred from a 2024 candidacy. If the Democrats have their way, President Trump will have no Cleveland-like second go-around!

Presidents Trump and Cleveland have character similarities; they’re both truculently honest. During his administration, President Cleveland was called “ugly-honest” and was admired for the enemies that he made, namely corrupt politicians. President Trump’s foes include career swamp dwellers, corporate America, Wall Street, Big Tech, China, America-last Democrats and RINOs. His friends, not in high places but 75 million strong, want to Make America Great Again. Evaluate President Trump by the enemies that he made, and the friends that he kept.

Vile, corporate anti-liberal — in the original, good meaning of the word — have taken over communication. Their “progressive” minions, whose reasoning skill makes a George Romero zombie look smart, shuffle along in ironic approval considering themselves “woke”.

Lin Wood Tweet Storm In Early Morn Gets Lizard Squad Trending

Lin Wood Tweet Storm In Early Morn Gets Lizard Squad Trending — L. Lin Wood, who until a few weeks ago ranked at the top of U.S. defamation attorneys, embarked on an epic tweet storm starting about 2 o’clock this morning (Jan. 4), in which he expressed a belief that Chief Justice John Roberts was being blackmailed by a major intelligence agency.

The blackmail alleged by Wood is especially horrific and implies that the subject consents to perform unspeakably vile deeds on camera to grant the blackmailers collateral in exchange for the subject getting power and wealth.

Wood says he has copies of the blackmail files as one of the intelligence agencies was hacked by a group known as The Lizard Squad, the name of which has been trending in Twitter throughout the morning.

The Squad, says Wood, gave the files to bit actor Isaac Kappy, who had been claiming that child rape/murder was rampant in Hollywood.

Kappy died of apparent suicide in May 2019.

Wood says he now has the files and has created a “deadman’s switch” if anything should happen to him or a loved one.

He says that if asked to turn the files to law enforcement he will only agree to provide them to attorney Sidney Powell, Gen. Michael Flynn or President Trump as they are the only ones he trusts.

In a related matter, former Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne reported that a Gulfstream 1159 with a registration number N53OGA was purposely destroyed on a remote airstrip in Guatemala on Oct. 27, 2019 after illegally entering that nation. The plane had been used by Jeffrey Epstein. On Feb. 10, 2011 a “John Roberts” was a passenger on it. For the record, the Supreme Court was not in session that day.

Conspiracy theories can be destructive, and the one in which children are being raped and murdered for wealth and power is growing greater by the moment. Chief Justice Roberts must take this seriously and address it. Wood’s claims against Roberts are defamatory. If Roberts should sue, Wood only has one defense. Roberts must call him on it.

Wood’s offer to turn the evidence over on his terms ought to also be called. If he’s telling the truth, the truth must be revealed. If not, the matter must be put to rest.

In another related matter, Wikileaks has just made a huge data dump. Check it out here. Hat tip Chris Saullo.

Why Fight Election Audits? Gotta Be A Logical Explanation

Why Fight Election Audits? Gotta Be A Logical Explanation — The Arizona Senate Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena  inspect and audit the Dominion ballot counting machines in Maricopa County.

The county Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to refuse to comply.

Why?

Half this country thinks Joe Biden’s vote tally Nov. 3 was illegitimate and President Trump rightfully won a second term. You would think that every step would be taken to change this belief and that a machine audit would be uncontroversial, and undertaken without objection for the sake of national unity.

But it’s not. What Maricopa County has done is extremely dangerous and destructive.

In a related matter, Fulton County, Ga. fired poll managers Suzi Voyles and Bridget Thorne who raised concerns about the execution of the November election.

Governments firing people who, at no benefit to themselves, raise concerns does not confidence bring.

Unless it is the undesired confidence that wrongdoing occurred and the election was stolen.

What’s sick is that Democrat partisans will try to justify this.

In other under-reported news, two filthy rich members of the hip set long suspected of human trafficking were arrested within a day of each other last week.

Peter Nygard, founder of Nygard International with a net worth of $817 million, was picked up in Winnipeg, Canada, Dec. 15, to face charges in New York for sex trafficking.

Jean-Luc Brunel, who headed the widely used MC2 Model Management agency and was a close friend of Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested in Paris on Dec. 16 while attempting to board a flight to Senegal. He is facing charges of rape and sex trafficking.

Think the arrests were coincidental?

Here’s a video from an old Oprah show where she’s gushing over Nygard’s estate in the Bahamas. Watch to the 1:40 mark to see who Pervo Pete’s fav was.

Media Falsehoods Defend Biden, Glenn Greenwald Censored

Media Falsehoods Defend Biden, Glenn Greenwald Censored — Glenn Greenwald, who is/was/whatever a man of the left, is one of this generation’s great journalists. He co-founded the web-based The Intercept in 2013 to give him the freedom to report about the things the establishment fought to censor.

Last week, he was censored by The Intercept. He had written an article describing how the established media was not merely ignoring the scandal concerning Hunter Biden’s laptop but actually lying to defend his father, their preferred candidate.

To recap, Hunter left his laptop at The Mac Shop in Wilmington, Del. for repairs. He never picked it up. The store owner checked its contents and found troubling material, some of which indicated that Hunter and Joe were selling influence to foreign nations including China.

The established media said, falsely, that the information could not be verified. The established media said, based on unsubstantiated claims by people affiliated with the CIA, that it was Russian disinformation.

Greenwald wrote an expose for The Intercept in which he revealed the inexcusable failings of our media while explaining how the laptop was most certainly Hunters and the troubling things on it were legitimate.

The Intercept would not run his story unless the Biden references were removed. Greenwald resigned. He explains in detail here.

The story The Intercept refused to run can be found here. It’s worth reading — especially for those whose Trump derangement syndrome might be curable.

Trump 60 Minute Interview With Lesley Stahl

Trump 60 Minute Interview With Lesley Stahl — President Trump was interviewed, Oct. 20, at the White House for a 60 Minute story scheduled to air Sunday.

Trump 60 Minute Interview With Lesley Stahl
Lesley Stahl in the White House without her mask.

The questions were confrontational albeit if it happened live they would not have been unfair. The President certainly got his point across.

The problem, though, is CBS would have certainly, definitely edited the footage in a way that would have distorted his position and left out very important things he was saying.

Really Lesley, the Biden scandal is “unverified” hence can be ignored? Shouldn’t investigative reporters be trying to verify and bring it before the public for discussion? Isn’t the possibility of a traitor as commander in chief kind of consequential?

And Lesley, you seriously think the FBI didn’t violate rules and protocols and all sorts of traditions necessary for us to function as a law-based Republic in their investigation of President Trump starting in the 2016 campaign?

President Trump is absolutely right to release this before the propagandists at CBS could chop up his statements.

CBS is upset, of course.

“The White House’s unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter 60 MINUTES from providing its full (sic), fair (sic) and contextual (sic) reporting which presidents have participated in for decades,” it said in a statement.

Tough toenails CBS.

Here is the uncut interview released by the President.

Treason Never Prospers, Right Joe?

Treason Never Prospers, Right Joe? –Joe Biden has been hidin’. A major candidate avoiding the public is unprecedented in the fortnight before a presidential election.

Treason Never Prospers, Right Joe?
C’mon man, sometimes treason does prosper

What could be the reason?

Well, has it ever before occurred that documents belonging to a close family member been revealed to indicate treason by the candidate?

Yeah, we’ll use that word. We’ve used it before.

Hunter Biden’s laptop left at The Mac Shop, a  a Wilmington, Del. computer repair store, has revealed among many other things, that Hunter was looking to get $850K per year in a do-nothing job with Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy Co., along with equity which included 10 percent going to Dad.

There is only one logical reason we haven’t been protecting US IP and industry from the People’s Republic Of China since the Clinton years.

Treason doth never prosper, what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it Treason.

New York Times Opposes Free Speech— Swarthmore’s Bob Small has sent us this link from an Oct. 11 Glen Greenwald article that appeared in The Intercept, describing how the union representing the dead trees inksters — no, they are not journalists –of The New York Times has taken a bold stand against dissent and free speech.

What has invoked the ire of The New York Times Newspaper Guild is an column by Bret Stephens taking to task the discredited 1619 Project promoted by the greedy tree killing corporation.

We have written about the 1619 Project before. It’s garbage befitting The New York Times.
