Democrats Now Plotting International "Resistance" to Trump

Treason comes in three flavors: Progressive, Democratic, and Chelsea Manning.

Just as Trump goes abroad to conduct foreign policy, the Party of Treason attempts to mount a foreign resistance to American influence.

Democrats are going global in their battle with President Trump, promoting their "international resistance" on the eve of his first foreign trip to the Middle East and Italy.

Democratic Party Deputy Chair Keith Ellison and representatives of Democrats Abroad are taking the lead and tonight plan to lay it out in a live webcast. "They'll be discussing Democrats Abroad, the international resistance, and the ongoing scandals from the Trump administration," said the DNC

16 The Democratic/GOP/establishment mantra

Today I made an appearance downtown
I am an expert witness, because I say I am
And I said, gentleman, and I use that word loosely
I will testify for you
I'm a gun for hire, I'm a saint, I'm a liar
Because there are no facts, there is no truth
Just a data to be manipulated
I can get any result you like
What's it worth to ya?
Because there is no wrong, there is no right
And I sleep very well at night
No shame, no solution
No remorse, no retribution
Just people selling T-shirts
Just opportunity to participate in the pathetic little circus
And winning, winning, winning

43 I posted this here a week ago:

"Trump's end game may be to have Rosenstein appoint a special prosecutor to look into "everything." Key is who gets picked and their mandate. Could be advantages in running a silo-ed investigation away from the compromised DOJ and FBI. "Schumer and McCain demanded a special prosecutor, they got it. Heh"

This is a long fight folks. I'm guardedly optimistic.

While there's risk with a special counsel, likely outcome is that Trump gets vindicated.

It likely will stall Trump's agenda, but he can use that in the run-up to the 2018 mid-terms.

If this were a movie, it's where all the bad guys get lined up against the outnumbered good guy. I'm thinking High Noon with Gary Copper or its 1981 in-space remake, Outland.

45 It's time to admit that 'politics as usual' will never be the same again. We all know the slide started in earnest during BJ's 2 terms. And during the GWB years with the maniacal Bush hatred coming from the MFM. And during TFG's 8 years' long lawless reign, it bloomed into something very ugly, very anti-American. Half the country has lost its mind and that toothpaste isn't going back into the tube. I don't anticipate us ever being a united country again. Not like I always knew. Not in my lifetime. That notion is deader than Maxine's brain synapses.

How does this NOT put to rest the inferences and innuendo being thrown about -- I don't mean by the MSM- they pull shit out of their own butts to fling around and see what sticks-- but here and on other relatively sane sites?

As someone said yesterday- the only thing I think happened last week that was reported as a SCANDAL is that Pres. Trump had 2 scoops of ice cream.

I suggest modifying that letter and TWEETING it to local republicucks, because those are the ones that have to be REMINDED of our presence PUBLICLY.

And also showing up in front of their offices.

The infrastructure of local TEA party orgs must still be in place, that's a good resource to begin organizing.

89 "Ahh remember the old days where our political differences end at the shorelines?"

As with the gauzy literary recollections of Chris Matthews about the purported era "when politics worked", there really never was such a thing.

In the case of Matthews, he was rhapsodizing about the congenial working relationship between Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill. Left unvoiced is that Democrats liked that setup because O'Neill repeatedly and dishonestly rolled Reagan in their handshake deals regarding legislation. Something not pointed out by the snooze media of the era, for obvious reasons.

Likewise, with the era of "politics ending at the shoreline", Democrats just as cynically as now had involved themselves with foreign influence and foreign money, except it wasn't at that time being pointed out by conservative skeptics, because there wasn't yet an Internet as a vehicle for such.

I'm sure it's gangbusters for fundraising from big donors and the activist left, though.

I hope (and pray) that Democrats fail to pick up anything significant in 2018 and lose to Trump in 2020 all while following the marching orders of the craziest of the left.

That being done might be enough to break the Party of its identity politics induced fever. Fingers crossed.

And this is why Barky should have been thrown out of the race and arrested after he held the biggest campaign rally of 2008 (and probably in "American" history) for a bunch of fuzzy foreigners ... in friggin foreign country ... supported in part by a foreign government.

But all McShame and the GOP turds could think to say about that was ... "Celebrity!!", rather than calling it the anti-American crime that it was.

He should reaffirm the commitment he made to the people during his inaugural address. The commitment that had every one of those mf'ers squirming in their seats. Talk to the people and lay it on the line about what's really going on. How TPTB are trying to stop him, and ultimately us, from taking power back. He can do this. And people will believe him.

Middle America might just bypass "jurisprudence", when faced with violent treason, head on. And the lefties might discover that "due process", will take about as long as a Boy Scout needs to tie a hangman's knot.

At the DNC a skeletal being raises its claw and says "Speak."
"Oh Skeletor..."
"I'm Tom Perez. Skeletor was in children's show."
"But you look just like..."
"Get to the point before I have your puny body blasted to atoms like I did with He-Man!"
"Yes, Oh Skel - Mr. Perez. Trump is going over seas on foreign visits. He has been greeted with non-stop disdain and a whiny middle school bitch fest from the media domestically. But a president's great strength is foreign policy. We fear that Trump may appear Presidential and Normal overseas and people may see this and wonder if we aren't the ones that have lost our minds and not him. What are you doing?"
Perez looks up from the brain he has been tinkering on. "Hmm? Just giving Nancy Pelosi a tune up. I think her timing belt is about to go, though. You were saying?"
"Overseas. During Trump's visits. We need to deploy the same tactics we have done here, see to it that Trump appears as reviled by everyone as he is by us. Then when he is seen as a failure everywhere we will put on Operation Impeachment Pie and elevate Hillary Clinton to the Imperial Throne - I mean, presidency."
Fingers deep into the cerebral cortex Perez nods and says 'Good idea; contact the Democrats Who Left America Because They Hate It and have them get bids on riotous mobs; remember to get receipts we have to watch the pennies these days - between Hillary's bar tab and Nancy's drinks cart it's a wonder we can keep the lights on."

**********

At the White House Trump prepares for overseas travel.
"Let's see - shave kit, extra underwear, clean shirts, extra long ties, mace, .45 with extra magazines, phrasebook on "How To Speak Foreign", weasel gel in gold - yep, got everything."
A man blunders into the room, his fez askew. He blinks behind thick glasses. "Meester Tromp?"
"Ah Morocco Mole! How's my best spy at the DNC?"
"I am fine. Secret Squirrel sent me to tell you the DNC plans protests while you are overseas to make you look like you are hated world wide causing you to be impeached into a pie."
"A pie?"
"They aren't very clever over there."
"Well, no. Thanks for the warning. I'll give Edrogan a call and borrow a couple of curb stomping Turks, and maybe see if Vlad can spare a squadron of Cossacks. What do you think little buddy?"
The Golden Scalp weasel straightens its Hawaiian shirt, adjusts its Ra-Bans and gives a thumbs up.

181 Past Special Prosecutors have been politicized, gone on for too long, and only collected incidental scalps.

But this one should play differently. It starts as an investigation that acknowledges that no crime has necessarily been committed.

Mueller may be a straight shooter and patriotic. He worked with Comey once, but they're not necessarily friends. Mueller has shown signs of not being a Deep Stater. There will be pressure on Mueller to act quickly.

The core subjects shouldn't take a year to completely investigate. Mueller will take heat if their are leaks. Congress will have to defer to Mueller, and will put much of their investigations on freeze, lest Mueller's get tainted.

So I'm guardedly optimistic about this

Because to be a prosecutor it would need to be a criminal investigation, not an intelligence operation...

So in essence, as there will be no formal charges ever brought, this is a POLITICAL operation, using the power of the entire US Intelligence apparatus... with no check or balance as to what it can do.... including.... leak information.

They have engineered a situation where the Deep State, can LEGALLY go after the President of the United States... and neither the President, nor Attorney General, can stop it.

239 Basically the left never forgave the US for winning the Cold War. When the former soviet states were clamoring for capitalism and freedom, it was a repudiation of every turtleneck wearing academic and slimeball politician who praised the new soviet man. Since they no longer had the glorious future of global socialist revolution, they adopted a new approach. Rather than revolution sweeping the Third World and bringing about a new era, they embraced globalism. Now the Third World would be brought into the West. Capitalism would be yolked to pay the fictitious "debts" owed to billions of poor people across Africa, South America, and Asia. At the same time, these mass migrations would undermine the institutions that had brought down the USSR: Christianity, democracy, free speech. And they found allies on the right. The libertarian movement and the global financial order rejected the idea of the nation-state, the idea of national culture, in favor of squeezing ever more efficiency out of local economies. The financiers in New York and London and Hong Kong have more in common with each other than they do the farmers in Albany, or Swindon, or Huizhou.

Trump is a rejection of all that, and they are pissed. It's going to be a long, and dare I say bloody, four years.

Do we really think the Party of Woe is capable pulling all their special interests together for a confrontation? I doubt it.

This succeeded each and every time in setting off a fresh round of anti-Trump Maddow-parroting by my universally leftist extended family.

And each time, I had to excuse myself to go to the bathroom or refresh my drink or let the cat out or something. Endless. I think some of my relatives actually began to noticed that I disappeared every time politics came up, since it happened so often.

It makes perfect sense - they were upset that they didn't get a chance to get martyred, too. After all, it's good to be the victim nowadays - that's where the pay day, fame, and power are. Sure, they might not personally be around to enjoy any of it, but The Cause will be.

Where do they muster? And what about the largely suburban and rural red state voters? Do they take back the country one Walmart at a time?

Did they remember their outrage then? No real answer there, as whenever I make a point. I doubled down by saying that Comey was a Wilkinson-grade weasel with no loyalty to his office or the Presidency. The best thing The Donald could do was fire him at the first chance.

And then two days later The Donald went ahead and did it, as I had said. We made it all the way through Mother's Day with nary an installment of the political argument.

329 All this drama reminds me of the European monarchs
who inspired rebellions that they werent the 'true' king, but foreign usurpers or pretenders.

The rebels would undoubted go seek foreign assistance to unseat the usurper by any means necessary.

The usurper would inevitably be replaced by a proxy for the foreign nation.

330 AS I' and others have been saying, Trump must make his case to the American people. If he does this and his poll numbers rise, the GOPe might realize that all the donor money in the world won't mean shit if they lose their seat because voters are pissed off at their treatment of Trump.

-------------------------------------

Who they voted for isn't the issue. They are an obstacle to the democrat power grab. The republicans have to be neutralized. Divide the GOP from Trump by making Trump radioactive; divide and conquer.

I heard that, the Repulicucks are useful idiots right now to help drag down The Donald. Then they can participate in the dismantling of the Republic for personal gain again, like they did during the Obama regime.

341 Trump's end game may be to have Rosenstein appoint a special prosecutor to look into "everything." Key is who gets picked and their mandate. Could be advantages in running a silo-ed investigation away from the compromised DOJ and FBI. "Schumer and McCain demanded a special prosecutor, they got it. Heh"

This is a long fight folks. I'm guardedly optimistic.

While there's risk with a special counsel, likely outcome is that Trump gets vindicated.

It likely will stall Trump's agenda, but he can use that in the run-up to the 2018 mid-terms.

If this were a movie, it's where all the bad guys get lined up against the outnumbered good guy. I'm thinking High Noon with Gary Copper or its 1981 in-space remake, Outland.

It is over developed and in a sloppy, haphazard way. There are also too many cops. I love cops, but NJ is still a state that plays by old Colonial rules--which has it's charms. But it also means that every village, boro, town, city, hamlet has it's own force, it's own brass, and it's own SWAT team. On top of that there are county cops, then State Troopers. Then there is Port Authority of NY and NJ cops and then....you get my drift.

And those fuckfaces made us do that twice ... and it's still not dead (as just about every candidate in the 2016 primary was still for the treasonous position).

No ...sadly, you have to look at what we got after 2010 and 2014 to see how much weight conservatives carry with the Vichy GOP shitheads.

399 Zombie, I can sort of empathize. I just finished about 4 years of keeping my mouth shut about politics except for my immediate family so I don't get blacklisted by the moonbats in my med school class. I have to keep my mouth zipped on Facebook because it's "unprofessional" to push back at left wing stupidity for someone trying to get a residency and also I don't want to get blacklisted and burn down what little hope I have of getting a residency next year.

402 "Trump's end game may be to have Rosenstein appoint a special prosecutor to look into "everything."




And when the special prosecutor gets to close to Hill and Obola, he'll wind up randomly murdered for no reason.


Good. Appoint Corinne Brown and Anthony Weiner. keep doing this. They either find nothing, or they get close to Hillary and JEF and wind up dead.

If you can't drain the swamp, fill it with their dead.

403 Merkel is still at it, I get daily press email
briefing about Brexit, and it really is disheartening how the EU elites
are threatening not only the UK but any other country that strays...Plus
the EU wants the UK to pay some enormous sum of money just to
leave...something like a billion Euros or something.


Posted by: Colin at May 18, 2017 02:50 PM (TTZGL)


The EU is acting stupidly. They really have nothing to bargain with. If they and the UK do not reach mutually agreeable terms for the parting within two years, the UK exits with no money paid and just reverts to WTO trade rules until they reach trade agreements with individual countries in the EU.

Now the EU is also threatening member states about making individual trade agreements but really they have no power to stop it.

Germany's efforts at a 4th Reich are falling apart and they are tantruming. Difference between last time and now is they do not have the military force to invade Poland and the Sudetenland or to bomb the crap out of London... so they are left with making empty diplomatic threats.

404 Trump needs to appoint a Bullshit Czar whose sole and critical function is to call BS on the Dem-progressives and make the case for something approaching conservative or even middle of the road American political culture to the public.

This is a part of Trump's own job description, and he does it well. But he has a lot on his plate what with being President and all. And, 30% of the country has completely tuned him out anyway: so there needs to be another, prominent spokesman for our ideas, and to call out theirs.

Time was Newt Gingrich played this role in the House, and for the country at large, as conservative explainer and BS-caller without portfolio, which he properly regarded as central to his job. And Reagan (God rest him) was in fact The Great Communicator on his own.

There was only Reagan, and Newt is of course too old to be brought out of mothballs. But we need someone prominent, articulate and with gravitas (pundits don't count) to argue the case and to call BS when the left tries to tear down our borders, sell us and our Constitution to the UN and otherwise betray us.

Ted and Rand are both great in their own way, and each kind of flamed out in their own way in the Presidential race.

Who do we have to fill this role?

When all this shakes out in our favor ( has to, it's predestined ) what arises MUST be in accord with our Constitution--the original blueprint.

Anything else would mean it was all in vain.

Unless you can somehow replicate the civil and social conditions that made that Wonder possible, I'm going on record as saying that ship's sailed.

Which isn't to say it might not come back around someday...but as I've said before, in our lifetimes (even the youngest of us), no, not without divine intervention.

I agree. Only a resurgence of morality and virtue (true virtue) will save this country as it was designed by the founders. Without that, it'll be just another country with factions drifting to one cause or the other, desperately seeking a totalitarian solution.

409 @406 Don't get me wrong I still love me some Newt. But he's not been deputized to make that his full time job, and I don't see him having the inclination to make it his main thing.
The left has the media working full time in the war of ideas, plus Schumer and Pelosi who, however batshit crazy and evil, still have the discipline to get their message out and make their arguments to the people.
It seems that our side are all too busy with their "day jobs" of inside baseball etc but no one to make the case.

412 I hate these people.

Just today, I realized how much the screaming about Bush was getting to me at the end of his tenure. I had forgotten about that in the Obama years.

Now I'm reminded by all this CONSTANT screaming and carrying on by the left, over anything and everything and nothing, only it seems 100 times worse than with Bush.

It is unrelenting. I remember thinking, well, when Bush is gone, I won't have to hear all the screaming anymore.

Little did I know. They will scream bloody murder over ANY president that's not their own, and it just gets exponentially worse over time.

DiAssholeo also recently skated on some major corruption charges. I wonder if the Fucking Bastards of Investigation was involved?
