“After a while, Samson said to the boy who was leading him: “Take me up to the front of the temple, so that I may stand by one of the pillars, and lean against it.”
And while Samson stood between the two pillars, he prayed. Then he placed one arm around the pillar on one side, and the other arm around the pillar on the other side; and he said: “Let me die with the Philistines.” And he bowed forward with all his might, and pulled the pillars over with him, bringing down the roof and all upon it upon those that were under it. Samson himself was among the dead; but in his death, he killed more of the Philistines than he had killed during his life.
There were deep faults in Samson, but at the end, he sought God’s help and found it, and God used Samson to set his people free.”

It is Donald Trump’s duty to defend the office of the President and the right of the American people to choose their own leaders through democratic elections. Both of those institutions are currently under attack, and there is a real danger that the republican system of government, which we have enjoyed for over 200 years, is about to be lost. So let’s cut to the chase: The results of the 2016 election have never been accepted by a small group of oligarchs, politicos, intelligence honchos and career bureaucrats. The presidential election did not produce the outcome they wanted, so they agreed to use their power to try to change the result.
With that end in mind, this group of fifth columnists settled on a plan for disposing of Trump by creating an Office of the Grand Inquisitor, an undemocratic, supra-legal agency that operates independent of Congress, the White House or the American people. The Mueller Inquisition is an entity unto itself, a fourth branch of government created by deep-state coup-member and perennial Trump antagonist, Rod Rosenstein, the duplicitous insider whose maneuverings have helped pave the way for an indictment of the president and, eventually, regime change. Like Comey, Brennan, Clapper and the rest, Rosenstein is neither committed to the president nor to the political system that guarantees representative government. His loyalties lie with the largely invisible group of establishment powerbrokers who manipulate policy through their agents that are spread across the bureaucracy. As we have seen in the last year, this group has infiltrated the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and the DOJ. They control nearly all the media and use it to shape a narrative that best suits their broader political objectives. These are the omniscient puppetmasters who despise Trump and are determined to remove him from office.
The attacks on Trump began even before he took office. Spurious allegations of “collusion” with Russian agents were eventually replaced with more credible claims of corruption, obstruction of justice and, finally, violations of campaign finance. Lost in the anti-Trump hysteria is the fact that the president has never come under fire for his flagrantly right-wing policies on immigration, taxes, the environment, education, law, and order, or regulations, but only for his laudable efforts to normalize relations with nuclear-armed, Russia. That has always been the basis for criticizing Trump, his eagerness for rapprochement with potential friend and ally, Moscow, which is reviled by the warmongering US foreign policy establishment who see Russia as clear threat to their psycho plan to rule the world. The “Borg” wants to replace Trump with a compliant toady, like Mike Pence, who will do whatever he’s told and march in lockstep with his NWO paymasters.
After a year and a half of fruitless investigation, Mueller stumbled across information about alleged payments Trump made to his personal attorney Michael Cohen that were reimbursement for secret payouts to porno-film star, Stormy Daniels. The $130,000 payment was an attempt to prevent Daniels from going public about an alleged affair she had with the president. And while no one is the least bit surprised that Trump may have had such extra-marital encounters in the past, there is the thorny question of whether campaign finance laws may have been broken in the course of paying Daniels. Clearly, this is the hook Mueller has been looking for all along, the chance to run Trump through the mud by making him look like a philandering scoundrel whose shady dealings make him unfit to serve as president of the United States. Stormy Daniels is merely the stick with which Mueller plans to beat Trump to a pulp. This is from Friday’s New York Times:
“The explosive revelation, which Mr. Giuliani said was intended to prove that Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen violated no campaign finance laws, prompted frustration and disbelief among the president’s other legal and political advisers, some of whom said they feared the gambit could backfire.
Legally, the failure to disclose the payments could be a violation of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, which requires that federal officials, including Mr. Trump, report any liabilities of more than $10,000 during the preceding year. Mr. Trump’s last disclosure report, which he signed and filed in June, mentions no debt to Mr. Cohen.”…
Mr. Giuliani recognized the situation was problematic …because Mr. Trump had previously said on Air Force One that he was unaware of the hush payments to Stephanie Clifford, the actress who performs as Stormy Daniels. However, Mr. Trump and his aides see lying to or misleading the news media as far less troublesome than lying to investigators….
(New York Times)
The Mueller Gestapo raided Cohen’s law offices and seized his private information that is protected under sacrosanct attorney-client privilege. Again, this illustrates the extraordinary extra-legal powers that were bestowed on Mueller by Rosenstein, the double-dealing bureaucrat who created the Office of Inquisition. As far as Rosenstein is concerned it doesn’t matter whether Trump is taken down by fabricated connections to Moscow or by illegal payouts to a porn star. It’s all the same to him. He’s merely acting on orders from the heavyweights who operate behind-the-scenes and who want Trump removed by hook or crook.
The genius of the Mueller Inquisition is the deceptive way it presents itself as an “independent investigation overseen by a man of unshakable integrity.” In truth, it is a public relations sham, an unconstitutional shadow government that was concocted by meddling elites who believe that they have the right to rule the country that they physically own. Mueller wasn’t chosen for his integrity or commitment to duty, but for his steadfast reliability. The Former FBI chief is a known commodity who can be trusted to perform his task as political assassin without question and without veering even slightly off-course. Mueller knows what his job is and for whom he is working, the invisible cabal that operate behind the smokescreen of institutional legitimacy and who use the appearance of “legality” to cloak their political subterfuge. These people are cold-blooded killers, and now they’ve set their sites on Trump.
By now, Trump must know that there’s nothing he can do to appease his enemies. They want him removed and they’re not going to settle for anything less than regime change. They’ve made that quite clear. Which leaves Trump with just one option, engage the enemy, flush them out into the open, enlist the support of the people and, most of all, make the co-conspirators pay for what they’ve done.
No one appointed this scheming-contemptible cabal to run the country, that is the job of the president and the Congress who earned the right through a vote of the people. And Trump doesn’t need to prove his legitimacy either, he won the election fair and square. What he needs to do is draw his enemies out into the daylight, expose the people who want to repeal the election, and rally his base to defend the franchise. He needs to summon the courage to honor his promise to defend the country “against all enemies foreign and domestic.”
But are there “domestic enemies” who want to topple the president and reverse the 2016 election? Is there a group of collaborators who are engaged in a coup d’etat? Is the Constitution really under threat?
Yes, it is. And it’s time we did something about it.
(Comment– Why would a leftist like myself support Trump?
I don’t. I voted for a candidate whose politics are somewhere to the left of Fidel Castro. But that doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned my principles. However bad Trump may be–and I think he might be the most right-wing president in history– I still believe in the legitimacy of the system that put him in office. That is where I differ from my liberal friends who say, “He’s not my president.”
I believe in the system that allows ordinary guys like me to have a voice in government through the ballot box. I believe in the system that allows us to pick our own leaders even when the results are not what we wanted. I actually think it’s a pretty damn good system. Which is why I hope that Trump figures out what the heck is going on and gives these deep-state creeps a good whooping. Mike W)
