Impeachment started inauguration day

If we are not living through a coup, why did The Washington Post publish this article on the day of President Trump’s inauguration. Headline: “The Campaign to Impeach President Trump Has Begun.” 

“At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org. spearheaded by two liberal advocacy groups aiming to lay the groundwork for his eventual ejection from the White House. The organizers behind the campaign, Free Speech for People and RootsAction, are hinging their case on Trump’s insistence on maintaining ownership of his luxury hotel and golf course business while in office.” 

Looking for an excuse: 

“Ethics experts have warned that his financial holdings could potentially lead to constitutional violations and undermine public faith in his decision-making.” 

This was the pretext – “what could happen.”

Of course, all these ethics experts were nowhere to be seen when Hillary Clinton was looting the State Department. 

In a very tricky and slippery way, the people behind the coup positioned themselves as protectors of democracy. And who knows, maybe they were recruited under the pretext of doing just that. The article quoted Ron Fein, legal director, Free Speech for People (wonder who was funding these organizations):

“If we were to wait for all the ill effects that could come from this, too much damage to our democracy would occur. It will undermine faith in basic institutions.” 

They were organizing in churches – do you remember this? Again per the Washington Post, January 31, 2017:

“Less than two weeks into Trump’s administration, federal workers are in regular consultation with recently departed Obama-era political appointees about what they can do….At a church in Columbia Heights last weekend, dozens of federal workers attended a support group for civil servants seeking a forum to discuss their opposition to the Trump administration.”

The bureaucrats claimed that they were protecting democracy. I was one of them, and I was horrified. (Remember that I speak for myself and all opinions are my own; I am not representing the Trump Administration or my agency here.)

I remember at one point I counted 102 “Alt” government accounts. This list contains the science accounts and was written approvingly. Snopes published another list in June 2017. They told themselves that they were heroes. Sample comment:

“’EPA staff were appalled by the gag order, and we are still under lockdown,’ said @RogueEPAStaff. ‘It’s a hostile takeover. We want to be a conduit — so people know the politicals aren’t speaking for scientists and that the scientists are unbent, unbowed, unbroken. The unexpected gift has been the outpouring of love and support!'”

At the time, thinking they were seditious, I questioned myself; thought maybe I was being too harsh. But I wasn’t. And I didn’t want to believe it, even when a colleague from another agency told me she was waiting for the President to be impeached.

Reporters were trying to get feds to talk to them, too. It happened to me, and to a colleague at another agency (not a partisan employee as far as I could tell, just a professional), who told me, without me prompting: “They were fishing for information.”

The plotters have tried all of the following messages/narratives re: @POTUS, and failed:

  • Crazy
  • Incompetent/inexperienced
  • Greedy
  • Russia pawn
  • Racist/sexist/homophobic
  • Sexual predator
  • We should abolish the electoral college
  • Stole the election because Russian social media accounts promoted him
  • Has the support of stupid people/Christian fanatics/bigots; we should nullify their votes

Failing to succeed in attacking President Trump on Russia, they went for Ukraine. But of course they did not talk about the history there, such as this statement by Victoria Nuland, former Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the United States Department of State under Obama. It was cited in an article by Katie Sanders for Politifact

“Since Ukraine’s independence in 1991, the United States has supported Ukrainians as they build democratic skills….invested over $5 billion.”

Were we using the money to overthrow the Ukranian government? Of course not, said Obama through his proxy, State Department spokesperson Nicole Thompson:

“The insinuation that the United States incited the people of Ukraine to riot or rebel is patently false.”

The report went on:

“Since 1992, the government has spent about $5.1 billion to support democracy-building programs in Ukraine, Thompson said, with money flowing mostly from the Department of State via USAID, as well as the departments of Defense, Energy, Agriculture and others.”

She added: 

“The United States does this with hundreds of other countries.”

Stop and let that sink in for a minute, the implications of that. 

Other times, most notably when it involves attacking President Trump, the radical left has no problem attacking the Deep State. Here is Ilhan Omar confronting Elliott Abrams with the murderous intervention of the United States in El Salvador, condoning the rape and massacre of 12 year old girls.

Mark Danner wrote about the incident in The Massacre at El Mozote (1994). Here is an abridged summary of his account, accessed at Wikipedia:

“On the afternoon of December 10, 1981, units of the Salvadoran army’s Atlacatl Battalion….trained by United States military advisors….began taking the women and older girls in groups, separating them from their children and murdering them with machine guns after raping them. Girls as young as 10 were raped, and soldiers were reportedly heard bragging how they especially liked the 12-year-old girls.”

Omar’s criticism was accurate; here is more information on Abrams’ role:

“In El Salvador, the Reagan administration, with Abrams as point man, routinely defended the Salvadoran government in the face of evidence that its regular army, and allied right-wing death squads, were operating with impunity.”

The impact of her video shows that when she wants to, Omar (a well-known hater of AmericaIsrael and the Jews) can make a powerful argument against U.S. government abuse and overreach. 

Think about what would happen if we simply told the truth and didn’t really care about the politics of who said it. 

Back to Ukraine, the statement regarding U.S. aid went was so vague that even the reporter had to admit: “The descriptions are a bit vague, which could lead people to think the money was used for some clandestine purpose.”

The best she could do was question the amount.

Of course, under President Trump, we still give foreign aid to Ukraine, and we should give foreign aid because at the very least, a more stable world means less fighting. (I actually think USAID should get *more* money, just more transparently.)

But let’s get back to the history of the coup. The indicators that were hiding in plain sight. 

Recall the popular show “Homeland,” Season 7. It featured Pres. Keane, a dictator who ultimately is forced to step aside.

“Keane’s disregard for constitutional rights and basic freedoms represents nothing less than a threat against the presidency and the American way of life”

President Keane was a thinly disguised and flipped version of President Trump. In the show she is a leftist and is opposed by an Alex Jones type who inspires militiamen, a standoff, etc. (your worst nightmares about “deplorables”) 

If you saw the show you may remember the scene where Carrie (heroine) is standing in her sister’s kitchen talking about resisting the dictatorship. It is very obvious anti-Trump stuff.

That season aired Feb – April 2018. It started production on September 11, 2017, which means they were planning it during President Trump’s first year in office.

All this did not go unnoticed by the media: “New ‘Homeland’ Season Sends CIA Agent After a Tyrannical President” (Haaretz 12/13/17):

“Riffing on President Trump and the current climate in the Washington, the fictional president incredulously asks Berenson ‘How is that they tried to assassinate me and I’m the one under investigation?'” 

And again: 

“‘Homeland’ Boss on Season 7’s Trump Inspiration, Alex Jones and RIP Peter Quinn” (Variety, 2/5/18):

“’It’s going to be an interesting Homeland season,’ warns Alex Gansa, showrunner of ‘Homeland,’ which returns for its seventh (and penultimate) season on February 11.'” 

“When the new season picks up, it’s nearly two months later, and the situation is ever more dire with Keane increasingly paranoid. Gansa says he was inspired by the headlines coming out of Washington, D.C. and the election of Donald Trump. ‘Given the swirl of news about the Administration’s war with its own intelligence community, “It was just hard not to do it,” he says.'”

Ask yourself if “Homeland” could get away with showing Antifa for who they really are: domestic terrorists.

With Hollywood dominated by the radical left and taking orders from the Deep State, of course not. They had to make it the “reasonable leftists” (who are somehow the “constitutionalists”) against the “crazy leftists” (meaning the dictators like Trump), and the pro-Trump people (nationalists) are portrayed as TOTALLY off the table “insane.” 

Gansa was, howeverable to show the intelligence community’s tendency to dictatorial abusiveness to some extent. 

The show does have a character that is very Brennan-like: Dar Adal. Gansa, again:

“We’re just in a very unique position to comment on it in one way or another. And it proved a temptation impossible to resist. What’s going on right now in the intelligence community is exactly what we’re dramatizing. And to run away from that would feel it a little cowardly and a little false. So we dived in.”

Remember when Project Veritas in 2018 showed Federal employees on hidden camera organizing the so-called resistance? Of course federal employees have the right to their own views – this went beyond:

“Federal Employee for State Department: “Resist everything… Every level. F**k sh*t up.” “I’m careful about it. I don’t leave a paper trail.’” “I have nothing to lose. It’s impossible to fire federal employees.”

IRS

Unfortunately, I am not allowed by the bylaws of my union to go against the Constitution.” 

HHS:

“It’s kind of like the Nixon, ‘deep throat’ type of thing.”

DOJ

“We have a member who works for the people who distribute food stamps…they’re slowing down what they do.” 

“And so we ran the license plate… we cannot do it officially”

Stephen Miller spoke the truth of the coup when he recently said:

“The attempt at impeachment is best understood as a legislative coup against a democratically elected president, and the radical leftists in Congress are working arm-in-arm with the deep state saboteurs and their allies in the media in order to try to effectuate this illegal coup.” 

All of this is not a joke or a game to the Deep State, meaning the unelected shadow government that profits off of corruption.

They are playing to win. 

The more information we have about their activities, the less likely it is that they can trick us into allowing it.

Trump and Former U.S. President Barack Obama waiting to exit the east front steps for the departure ceremony during the 58th Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2017.

Washington Post: The Drive To Impeach Started On Inauguration Day (1/20/17)

1) If we are not living through a coup, why did The Washington Post publish this article on the day of President Trump's inauguration?

"The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun"

washingtonpost.com/news/post-poli… 
2) They have been pretending from Day 1 that it was only about ensuring the rule of law was followed. 
3) I remember at one point I counted 102 "Alt" government accounts (as in "Alt-USDA, Alt-EPA") that were using some version of "Resist" or "Resistance" as their hashtags. They were clearly engaged in a seditious conspiracy to overthrow the President, and I said so at the time - 
4) - but then engaging in dialogue over Twitter with one of them, using the word "sedition" and providing a link to the statute which showed the penalty for it - they backed down, and I thought maybe I was being too harsh.

I wasn't being too harsh, it was 100% true. 
5) They were organizing in churches - do you remember this?
Reporters were trying to get feds to talk to them - it was most definitely a coup, but couched in the reverse language of "resisting a dictator" 
6) On January 20, 2017 Matea Gold's column in The Washington Post stated: 
7) "At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at , spearheaded by two liberal advocacy groups aiming to lay the groundwork for his eventual ejection from the White House." 
8) "The organizers behind the campaign, Free Speech for People and RootsAction, are hinging their case on Trump’s insistence on maintaining ownership of his luxury hotel and golf course business while in office." - Looking for an excuse. 
9) "Ethics experts have warned that his financial holdings could potentially lead to constitutional violations and undermine public faith in his decision-making." - This was the pretext - "what could happen." 
10) All these ethics experts were nowhere to be seen when Hillary Clinton was looting the State Department. 
11) Also ask yourself who was funding all these "experts"? 
12) The "strategists" behind the coup anticipated "an angry backlash from those who will argue that they are not giving the new president a chance." 
13) In a very tricky and slippery way, the people behind the coup positioned themselves as protectors of democracy.

And who knows, maybe they were recruited under the pretext of doing just that. 
14) “If we were to wait for all the ill effects that could come from this, too much damage to our democracy would occur. It will undermine faith in basic institutions." - Ron Fein, legal director at Free Speech for People. 
15) The plotters have tried all of the following messages/narratives re: @POTUS, and failed:
* Crazy
* Doesn't know how to run a government
* Greedy
* Russia pawn
* Racist/sexist/homophobic
* Sexual predator 
16) Failing to succeed in attacking POTUS on Russia, they went for Ukraine. 
17) Let's talk about bureaucrats and their aversion to a sincere discussion of Ukraine. 
18) How do you interpret this statement by Victoria Nuland (Obama State Dept.; see video) "Since Ukraine's independence in 1991, the United States has supported Ukrainians as they build democratic skills....invested over $5 billion."

20) "Since 1992, the government has spent about $5.1 billion to support democracy-building programs in Ukraine, Thompson said, with money flowing mostly from the Department of State via USAID, as well as the departments of Defense, Energy, Agriculture and others."

Oh. 
21) She added: "The United States does this with hundreds of other countries."

Stop and let that sink in for a minute, the implications of that. 
22) Ilhan Omar confronting Elliott Abrams with the murderous intervention of the United States in El Salvador, with the rape and massacre of 12 year old girls.

I have to tell you - she makes a powerful argument against the Deep State.
23) Think about what would happen if we simply told the truth and didn't really care about the politics of who said it. 
24) Back to Ukraine, the stmt. re where $ went was so vague that even Katie Sanders (Politifact) had to admit: "The descriptions are a bit vague, which could lead people to think the money was used for some clandestine purpose."

The best she could do was question the amount.
25) Of course, under President Trump, we still give foreign aid to Ukraine, and we should give foreign aid because at the very least, a more stable world means less fighting.

(I actually think USAID should get *more* money, just more transparently.)

26) But let's get back to the history of the coup. The indicators that were hiding in plain sight. 
27) "Homeland" Season 7 featured Pres. Keane, a dictator who ultimately is forced to step aside.

"Keane's disregard for constitutional rights and basic freedoms represents nothing less than a threat against the presidency and the American way of life"

30) That season started production on September 11, 2017, which means they were planning it during President Trump's first year in office.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeland_… 
31) All this did not go unnoticed. 
32) "New 'Homeland' Season Sends CIA Agent After a Tyrannical President:
- Haaretz 12/13/17

haaretz.com/us-news/new-ho… 
33) "Riffing on President Trump and the current climate in the Washington, the fictional president incredulously asks Berenson 'How is that they tried to assassinate me and I’m the one under investigation?'" 
34) Boom. Kicked right off the internet again, with the VPN still on. 
36) “'It’s going to be an interesting Homeland season,' warns Alex Gansa, showrunner of 'Homeland,' which returns for its seventh (and penultimate) season on February 11.'" 
37) "When the new season picks up, it’s nearly two months later, and the situation is ever more dire with Keane increasingly paranoid.

Gansa says he was inspired by the headlines coming out of Washington, D.C. and the election of Donald Trump." 
38) "Given the swirl of news about the Administration’s war with its own intelligence community, 'It was just hard not to do it,' he says." 
39) Ask yourself if "Homeland" could get away with showing Antifa for what it really is.

Of course note.

They had to make it the reasonable leftists against the crazy leftists, and the pro-Trump people (nationalists) are portrayed as TOTALLY off the table "insane." 
41) "We’re just in a very unique position to comment on it in one way or another. And it proved a temptation impossible to resist." 
42) "What’s going on right now in the intelligence community is exactly what we’re dramatizing."

"And to run away from that would feel it a little cowardly and a little false. So we dived in.” 
43) Oh - I forgot the other justifications for the coup.

* We should abolish the electoral college

* Trump somehow stole the election because Russia sponsored social media accounts promoted him 
44) Let's see - other reasons

* American voters are too stupid to choose their own president and we should take that right away from them
* Trump supporters are evil racists and don't deserve a vote, instead they should be hunted down by doxing sites like racist.watch 
46) "Federal Employee for State Department: “Resist everything… Every level. F**k sh*t up.” 
47) "Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) Embedded in Federal Government Positions, Actively Resisting"

"Stuart Karaffa Does Work for DSA While on Taxpayer’s Dime: 'I’m careful about it. I don’t leave a paper trail.'" 
48) “I have nothing to lose. It’s impossible to fire federal employees.” 
49) "Ethics Officer Fails to Recognize Breach on Ethics Form: “somebody just rubber stamps it and it goes forward…” 
53) It's not a joke or a game to the Deep State.

They ARE playing to win.

Even though I can promise you, they are destined to lose.

And no matter how many times they kick me off the Internet, nothing can change the truth.
