Moment of Truth: Trumpinator or Trump-the-Pussy

As I have written here and elsewhere, President Swamp Drainer needs to get control of the DoJ. He got rid of Comey, which was good, but got Rosenstein and Mueller in response, which was bad.

Meanwhile Jeff Sessions is twiddling his thumbs re the Russia witch hunt. Perhaps Session's recusal was appropriate, but he’s not doing anything at all regarding Swamp Draining. So it appears his support for Trump is a bit disingenuous.  Could it be that he's just an old guard GOPer, who wants to give the impression of being a Trump supporter, but who's real intent is to obstruct progress.? He's done little more than drag his feet, covering his do-nothing intent behind a front of  law-enforcement community boosterism.  Is this the GOP plan, to stall until 2020, when it can then point at Trump’s failures (failures they have enabled by their stalling, wink wink) and then campaign to take “their” party back.? In short, Sessions may just be an anti-Trump “mole” planted in the single most important position with regard to swamp draining, in order to ***prevent*** any swamp draining.
Let me be clear: in the last 24 years the DC political class has gone almost entirely criminal, with the last 13 years dedicated to serial war crimes. In this situation the DoJ, AG, and FBI head, have become corrupted, and turned away from the rule of law to become a shield from the law for DC criminal despotism.
So watch closely what happens next.  Just today I've heard the first mention — though I’ve mentioned this several times over the last few weeks — of talk in the White House about ***recess appointments***.   And the response from outside the White House has been outrage bordering on fury at the notion of such appointments, which outrage betrays their understanding of the consequences, and the justified depth of their fear at the prospect.  We have reached the crucial moment, and I for one am surprised that, as important as this is, I have not seen it discussed ***anywhere*** before now.

The August Congressional recess was scheduled to begin at the end of business tomorrow, July 28th. Because of the health care business, McConnell postponed it for two weeks.  So let’s call the Congressional recess to begin at close of business Friday, August 11th, fifteen days from now.
When Congress goes home fifteen days from now, this country and the world may very well change forever. Go to Wikipedia and look up “recess appointment”. Here’s what you will find:
“…a recess appointment is an appointment by the President of a federal official… while the U.S. Senate is in recess. …
Recess appointments are authorized by Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, which states:
The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.
If Trump is the fighter I think he is, then this is what he has been waiting for, ever so patiently these last six months, and why he has not gone on the offensive despite the unrelenting attacks against him.  Notice that the Congress cannot countermand recess appointments. Recess appointments end by expiring, and then only at the end of the following Congressional session. So other than by impeachment, Congress cannot stop Trump from doing this.
So Trump dumps Sessions, purges the anti-Trump prosecutors from previous administrations, and appoints a new FBI head and dozens of fire-breathing swamp-draining prosecutors who immediately start doling out orange jumpsuits. He could — not predicting that he will, just hoping, but he could execute this “nuclear option” — he could lock up virtually the entire Congress on war crimes charges; Neocons for conspiracy to commit war crimes; Cheney, Addington, Yoo, and Bybee to the Hague for torture; Hillary and Obama for Libya.
Control of the DoJ is the key.
The next two weeks will show whether Trump is the real deal, or just another schlub.

Fabulous spectacle!

Political Self-Immolation

"What is relevant is Donald Jr's INTENT. In his email response (I am paraphrasing, but you can verify) he says, if the offer of dirt on Hillary is true, I love it! The intent behind this statement is loud and clear."
I agree with you that this is the heart of the matter, and like you I am surprised that the so few of the anti-Trump people have zeroed in on this crucial element. Good on you for bringing it front and center. Let's take a look.
Trump jr gets an email that says, "We've got dirt on HRC from the Russian govt, and we want to share it with you as part of Russia/Putin's effort to help Trump win the presidency." (This may not be absolutely the precise wording, but this will be the most aggressive/damning "parsing".)
Then Trump jr says, "I love it, bring it on." This will be spun as Trump jr declaring his willingness and his INTENT (your caps) to collude, and as the very first substantive act in the process of collusion.
Badda bing, badda boom!, smoking gun!, lookie here, ***COLLUSION!!!***.
That's the case for the prosecution.
However -- now the case for the defense -- after that, it's all a giant nothingburger, because beyond the emails there was absolutely nothing. Nothing at all. Nothingburger because (1) intentions aren't actions, and (2) the "bait" -- "dirt on HRC from the Russian plan to install their Manchurian Candidate" -- was a total fabrication with zero connection to Russia. No Putin/Kremlin involvement at all. Just a fictional lure from a fat, ugly, British "publicist" political dirty trickster.
The Russian lawyer appears to have been a pawn. Her interest, the element that drew her into this silly little scheme, was her concern about Russian orphan adoptions. She wasn't privy to the content of the emails and didn't know anything about any dirt on HRC. She was a prop who provided "the Russian element", her Russian name.
Don jr's putative "evil intent" may make for a momentary kerfuffle, some screaming and shouting and more ratings for CNN and msnbc, but it has no political lethality. And it will end up a spectacularly embarrassing exercise in futility -- not that that will dissuade anyone. It will be futile to try and make a case for collusion out of Don jr's "I love it, bring it on!", because there was nobody on the other side to collude with: no Kremlin involvement, no Kremlin Manchurian Candidate plot, no HRC dirt. Nothing, nada, zippo, a phantom.
And, of course, no involvement with or connection to the President. So the only possible impact is that maybe Trump, his family attacked yet again, decides enough is enough, and dishes the wrath of god to various and sundry Swampistas.
Bottom line: when the dust has settled, the Trump opposition will be worse off than ever.
What a fabulous spectacle: the self-immolation of the corrupt American political system! I frikkin' can't get enough!

The Trump enigma explained

Snagged for posterity from:

Upon witnesing President Trump's CNN smackdown tweet today, I was left making much the same facial expression Laurence Fishburn makes at the end of The Matrix when he realizes Neo truly is The One. Long has MPC and the greater alt-right waxed rhapsodic over Trump's many paradigm-shifting qualities, but today was the first day I truly saw him for what he is: Trump is not just a Chad, he is The Chad, in much the same way top-level Taoists claim to become the Tao. This is the key to understanding his behavior and why he appears to so effortlessly triumph over legions of incredibly well-financed yet morally-bereft, insidious bugpeople. If you were to combine every star high school quarterback and Ray-Ban clad summer lifeguard into one, you still would not be scratching the surface of the Pure Chadism that flows through Donald Trump's veins at any given moment. For him, bullyciding isn't just a fun pasttime; it's a way of life.

Donald Trump is a 139 IQ certified triple alpha Apex Chad, born with a nearly perfect anti-autism genome which was then steeled through a lifetime spent in the cutthroat world of high-end ManFUCKINGhatten real estate, which is basically the Olympics of bare, no holds barred Jewry. He is at the top of the Chad food chain, imbued with not only the quotidian Chad qualities of athleticism and insouciance, but also rarer, top-level Chad qualities like completely effortless trolling and unshakable detachment. When you see Trump - the President of the United States of America, lest we forget - retweeting a meme of (real, actual) himself delivering a WWE Raw smackdown to the bugman hive that is CNN, you're watching a completely autonomic response; trolling comes as easy to President Trump as breathing comes to the rest of us, and he puts the same amount of thought into it as you or I just put into our last breath. Unlike his bugman opponents, The Chad does not expend valuable energy hand-wringing over what the latest (((models))) may show; The Chad simply does. Whether he's a plucky, new-to-the-scene NYC realtor having his associate "John Miller" call up some sleazeball tabloid yid to call him a f****t, or a 2016 Republican presidential candidate bragging about his dick size to 80 million prime-time viewers, or the President of the United States of America retweeting a silly meme showing him giving CNN a stunner, The Chad is acting on 100% instinct at all time; this makes him an absolutely fatal opponent for the bugman, whose modus operandi is by nature spergy, data/consensus-driven, and highly fragile. Many here have spoken at length of Trump's anti-fragility in the vein of Taleb; I propose that Trump exists outside of the fragility continuum altogether, a being wholly inoculated against any traditional understanding of vulnerability. Imagine the popular "it all runs off like water down a duck's back" copypasta we are so fond of poasting; now imagine that there is no "... but call him a Jew" clause. That is Donald Trump, The Chad. He has no natural weakness, at least not insofar as the postmodern, atomized, bugman Acela class is concerned.

Exactly how Chad is Donald Trump? We're talking about a man who had the stones to write a very Chadily-composed tell all paperback some 30 years ago that - and this is really amazing stuff, folks - literally takes the reader on a point by point dissection of his understanding of life, the gambits he runs, how he views success and how he wins so often. His entire playbook, laid bare for any literate man, woman, or child to peruse at their leisure, millions of which did. But because Donald Trump understands the nerd/bugman on a fundamental level - far better than the bugman knows even himself - he knows that even with his entire strategic gameplan free for the taking, there is no danger of the enemy catching on. Trump's Chad instincts are so finely tuned that he knows even if he shows the crowd how the magic trick is done, if he does it with his trademark flair, they'll keep falling for it every time. Whether consciously or not (likely not, as we're talking about hardwired, base-level instincts at this point), Trump realizes the bugman will never catch on, as the bugman considers Trump a buffoon, a charlatan, an idiot and a fraud, just as the nerd sees the garden-variety Chad. Simply speaking, bugpeople simply have no idea what they're dealing with when encountering Trump; watching them squirm reminds me of the Strugatsky brothers' Roadside Picnic, wherein mankind spends an inordinate amount of time trying to comprehend alien actions that were, to the aliens, simply a picnic stop. Not only does the bugman foolishly consider himself smarter than Trump, he simply does not understand him at all. To them, his very existence is incomprehensible, a problem to be run through endless datasheets and algorithms and editorial columns; to Trump, that the bugman exists doesn't even register.

When you're watching Trump troll, you're not merely watching a maestro at work; no, you're seeing the very essence of trolling given human form. Trump himself is aware of his incredible, Chadly prowess, as he mocks his opponents' appeals to staid (and laughable) ARE PRESIDENTIAL DIGNITY by announcing that he is not presidential, but modern presidential, a one-off tweet that illustrates Trump has a far deeper understanding of his paradigm-shattering position than he normally lets on. He knows exactly what he is doing, folks. His Twitter finger is a veritable Seal Team Six of bullycide, able to (((ethnically))) cleanse entire newsrooms with the tap of a pinky. Trump is essentially delivering public, extrasensory wedgies and swirlies over the air to millions of bugmen at any given moment; to be quite honest, this is a level of Chadism that I thought was theoretically impossible. No one man should be able to bullycide like ARE president, and yet there he is, delivering a precision-guided tweetbomb holocaust right to the frontostriatal pathway of millions of shitlibs at 2:05am in the morning. This is simply preternatural.

To borrow one of my favorite CJ quotes (over a year old now, how time flies in Trumpville ):

Cinco Jotas, on 14 May 2016 - 12:22 PM, said:

f**k the movies. There's no happy ending here for the media. This is evolution in action. Our oppressive s**tlibmedia has produced the ultimate media killer. Trump isn't a centipede. He's one of those giant Japanese hornets that kills an entire hive full of bees. He's immune to their stings, and until they evolve a new strategy, which will take a generation or more, it'll just be carnage.

This is a fantastic metaphor, but I think in light of recent events it could use some minor tweaks. Not only is Trump completely immune to the bugman's stings and their postmodern false idols of snark and sarcasm and feigned outrage, he absolutely thrives on their suffering. I see Donald Trump as more of a blue whale (the most yuge animal), happily gliding along with a smug look on his face, mouth lazily opened, all the while swallowing hundreds of plankton at any given moment. Journalists, shitlibs, and assorted anti-Trump f****ts are in this simile the plankton, just complete non-entities to the yuge Trump juggernaut, completely inconsequential in every way, unable to do much of anything in the face of the oncoming titan. Their suffering and eventual destruction fuel Trump for even more trolling and bullyciding; where in the past, conservative sadsacks would wither and die in the face of sustained s**tlibonslaught, President Trump uses their angst to propel himself forward, not really even aware that any one given s**tlib-plankton exists. Trump is an extinction level event for the bugpeople, who are quickly discovering their snarky takedowns and affected, outraged attitudes are akin to when the Poles trotted out the cavalry against the blitzkrieg. When you see the Trump CNN tweet you are effectively witnessing shitlibs using 20th century tactics coming up against a 21st century president; just a complete and total slaughter, the Charge of the Blight Brigade.

I never thought in my life we'd see such a spectacle, and yet here we are, existing in a universe where it's not completely implausible that POTUS Trump will have John Cena deliver a Five Knuckle Shuffle to some nebbishy trickle down media whore during one of his upcoming press conferences. I only wish David Foster Wallace could have lived to see this day; who would have thought that the harbinger of New Sincerity would be a reality TV billionaire who starred in a Pizza Hut commercial? ARE president is such a Chad that he is murdering postmodernism right before our very eyes, using nothing more than a free Twitter account. Infinite jest indeed.

Letter to progressives: Jimmy Dore

If progressives would stroke this guy instead of hating on him, you could get everything you want. His detractors declare from the rooftops that he's a narcissist, in love with himself, the archetypal "young man from Nantucket", So lavish him with praise, affirmation, .... adulation even would be good, and he should give it up for you like a prom queen. I mean Jeez guys, have some imagination. This is a glass-half-full opportunity, and rather than taking it, you're turning him over to the Neocons. "On matters of policy, Trump cited waiting times at the VA before offering a solution: “If they have a nine-day wait,” Trump asked rhetorically, “why don’t they just go see a doctor and our country will pay the doctor? It’s really the least expensive thing that could happen. [We would] have to go out and negotiate some good prices with good doctors … Why don’t we do it?” Although he was speaking of the VA, Trump had just unwittingly endorsed the concept of Medicare For All." I'm a hard-left progressive and a Trump supporter. I sent him to Washington to burn the place down. In 2016 he bitch-slapped the GOP and helped HRC self-terminate and take the Dem party down with her. When Congress recesses in August, Trump will appoint **his** prosecutors and **his** FBI Director, so that the war to Drain the Swamp can begin in earnest.

Then in 2018, with healthcare a Gordian knot still to be unraveled, Trump will blame it on the GOP old guard, and primary them out. If you're there stroking his ego, and telling him that he can be **The Greatest American President of All Time** if he enacts the single-payer system, which 84% of Americans want, bingo! you win,... by helping him to win. I mean c'mon guys, get creative.

The Republican Party (tm) is in receivership, on the auction block, up for grabs. Meanwhile, Trump is steeped in NY liberal values, self-love, and big money strategic pragmatism. When are you going to get a better, more malleable vehicle than that? (Hint: never.) So get over your "two minutes of hate" daily dose of hating on the **old** GOP, and take possession of the embryonic Trumpublican party, and mold-slash-drag it (kicking and screaming if necessary) to the populist center. Trump is not the enemy, he is the opportunity you have been waiting for. Hey, just a thought. BY the way, Jimmy, if you get to read this, I'd like a Google hangouts chat with you. A hard-left progressive & Trump supporter; might be interesting.

Are you ready to rumble?

Obama was a phony and a weakling from the start. His war-mongering, and his appointment of HRC as Secretary of State were fully intentional, and consequently he deserves the indictment that ought to be issued. Barack declared at the start of his presidency that he would "look forward not back". That was his signal to the "Establishment" that he was one of them (or wanted to be) and would protect them. Trump's not a white-man-insider-wannabe. He's not interested in the DC Club Dickless. He's the big dog, the maestro of Club Trump, the only club that matters. Trump is the agent of benevolent destruction. He's bent on sweeping away the old, corrupt political order and rebuilding America and stamping it with the Trump brand. Magnificent ego! None but Trump voters like that one bit, but hey,... he won. Suck on that. Life's a bitch sometimes. Manhood is back! Trump said he wanted "to get along with Russia", and ever since then the deep state -- CIA et al -- want him in a box, dead or alive. Until Trump has control of the Justice Dept -- he has yet to assemble and install loyal Trumpista prosecutors and a fire-breathing FBI director gung ho to go after the DC criminal class -- he will have to be careful. The GOP old guard aren't going to impeach him, but just the same, they don't like him and don't support him, and are just waiting for 2020 and a chance to take back what they see as ***their*** party. Not gonna happen. Trump knows what they're thinking, and will sandbag them at the midterms. Bottom line, everyone -- the elites, the political class, the establishment, the Zionists, the deep state, the one percent,... whatever you want to call them -- all except Trump voters, want Trump hog-tied, gone, or dead, as they await 2020. That's their plan,... but they won't make it past 2018. The corrupt Dem/GOP neo-liberal dinosaurs were blasted in 2016 with a mass extinction event courtesy of asteroid Trump. What then of Trump's plan, Trump the fighter, Trump the president? Here's my prediction: when the Congress goes home for the August recess, Trump will do recess appointments to the DoJ: prosecutors and FBI director: Trump-loyalists, "Swamp Drainers" with the power to indict. Sphincters will tighten, and the real battle will begin. (Almost certainly this is wishful thinking on my part. Because my wishful predictions in previous electoral seasons have been consistently wrong, I can't really get myself to believe it I could be right this time, even though that's been the case so far in this strangest of electoral seasons. That said, the political class is up to its eyeballs in indictable offenses -- Iraq war and torture. Trump has the goods on them. He has the power once he has the prosecutors in place, to put every last one of them in an orange jumpsuit. ***IT IS FEASIBLE*** at the very least. Whereas, on the other side, despite trying as hard as they have, they have not yet been able to get the goods on Trump.) Finally a preview of what future episodes may look like. The "Russia Collusion" episode was a nothingburger. A tease. Profits for Rachel Maddow and CNN. Smoke but no fire. When Trump refused to be "smoked out" or tricked into obstructing or covering up, and the Russia thing faded, Mueller was brought in for the "wet work". Mueller's strategy is to dig deep into Trump's business dealings and find something, anything, on Donald jr, Eric, or Ivanka and then use that to either blackmail Trump into resigning, or bait him into attempting to protect his family with a cover-up. But,... as this cannot happen before the August Congressional recess, Trump has a clear shot, if he wants it, at taking down the DC criminal class. In Trump's arsenal, he has on one hand the power of indictment, and on the other hand, the Presidential pardon, ("Stick and Carrot", "Oro o plomo"). He can pre-emptively pardon his kids, thus neutering Mueller's plan in a stroke. (Acting as protector of his family is pure political heroism/genius for Trump.) He can appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Mueller and Comey for defrauding the United States by concocting phony post-911 "terror plots" against indigent American blacks. DC crime is so extensive that the list of possible Trump counter-attacks is nearly endless. And who can doubt that Trump has the talent -- the "temperament" -- for the political war that looms? Again, I am reminded of the words of Isoroku Yamamoto: "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." I sent Trump to Washington to burn the place down. Let the August recess come and let the spectacle of political blood-letting begin. We shall see. MAGA.
