Trump’s DOMINATION of Mueller and Desperate Democrats
Watching President Trump confound leftists invigorates many Americans.
I’m certainly one of them. Much maligned by political purists, Trump’s “reality show” presidency reeks of genius. The man literally has the press watching his every more, waiting for the next tweet. But that’s not what impresses me most. The way President Trump traps Leftists intrigues me.
As Daniel Ashman writes in American Thinker,
Consider the central puzzle to Trump’s presidency: why did his own people give NeverTrumps a special counsel?
The most common explanation is that Trump is a bumbling fool. First, he colluded with Russia. Then he appointed Sessions, not knowing that Sessions would recuse himself. Finally, he appointed Rosenstein and was blindsided by the initiation of Mueller’s probe.
The problem with this idea is that Trump has been a successful person for decades, building an empire in the cutthroat world of New York real estate. Maybe it’s possible to argue that Trump isn’t a Harvard bookworm, but there is an enormous gulf between not being the second coming of Henry David Thoreau and being what Trump’s opponents say he is. His record simply does not countenance a serious conclusion in accord with his haters. At worst, he is merely competent, smart, and wily.
Conservatives know that Leftists live in Bizarro World.
In that world, a failed community organizer with no experience trumps a self-made multi-billionaire running a global corporation. Imagine the belief one has to suspend to believe that concept. Yet Leftists convinced themselves that Trump is an idiot, undeserved to be president.
One of Trump’s favorite quotes is “A leader has the right to be beaten, but never the right to be surprised.”
In other words, you should know what the stakes are, and be prepared to fight. Or not. Which brings me to Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.
I have written extensively on Trump allow Mueller to continue as special prosecutor. And when people screamed from high heaven about the people Mueller appointed, I suggested at the time that Trump knew exactly what he was doing.
Trump is facing the Salem witch trials. Democrats are a runaway mob and want his blood.
Many Trump supporters are desperate for Trump to get in front of this mob and explain how he is innocent, that he is a nationalist who is strengthening the military, modernizing the nuclear forces, protecting America against an EMP attack, selling weapons to Ukraine, and increasing oil production, so quite clearly, he is not Putin’s agent, and they should all please stop their nonsensical protesting and turn around.
But Trump never made a serious effort to logically reason this out with his enemies. It isn’t his style.
Trump has a fondness for Sun Tzu. Here is a quote is I am sure he approves of: “Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.” This is the hidden strategy.
Not only did Trump not stop Democrats’ attack on him, but he actually forced them to prosecute it. He gathered Democrat swamp monsters into a single group, under his control, pointed them in a direction, and off they went. From this perspective, the more anti-Trump the investigators are, the better.
Genius. President Trump got Mueller to assemble his anti-Trump swamp monsters for all the world to see.
This tactic reminds me of when law enforcement sends criminal with warrants “free trips” to Hawaii. The criminals all gather at a specified place, arriving jubilant that they have “won” the trip.
Consider what we now know of the various members of the FBI, hand-picked by Mueller to go after Trump.
Did they progress in their investigation against Trump? OR, did they open up a can of whoop ass on themselves.
The ambush against Democrats is well underway. The truth about Mueller’s investigation is coming out, and it his highly damaging, be it about Mueller team members Peter Strzok and Lisa Page exchanging texts calling Trump a “loathsome human,” Andrew McCabe testifying about a meeting in his office where FBI agents said they “can’t take that risk” of Trump becoming president, or Mueller obtaining thousands of Trump transition team emails in an improper manner.
This is how Trump wants it. Remember: during the campaign, Trump emphasized how he wouldn’t tell America’s enemies what his plans were. Sun Tzu says, “These military devices, leading to victory, must not be divulged beforehand.” Part of the reason the situation is confusing is that Trump wants it to be confusing.
After the ambush comes the counterattack. Trump’s troops have been positioned. The preparations are being completed. The enemy is placed in a vulnerable spot.
As with the criminals gathered for their “vacation”, the resolve comes.
While the criminals smile and talk among themselves, all trying to figure out how they got so lucky, the marshalls come in and start arresting them.
Easy, peasy. No weapons needed, since the criminals won’t bring weapons to travel on a plane. And nobody jacked up on anything except the high of getting something for nothing.
So what’s the resolve for the Mueller team, Democrats in general, and the media? According to Ashman,
The Justice Department’s inspector general report will come out soon, ostensibly with highly damaging information on Democrat operatives. Congressmen are getting increasingly fed up with prevarication by Deep State bureaucrats. Congress is practically begging Trump to pursue Democrat corruption more aggressively.
Simple explanations are always best. It must be admitted: the idea that Trump is pulling a sophisticated and long-term caper can be hard to believe. However, there is no other explanation that is simpler and makes sense. Thus, we must accept the simplest explanation consistent with facts, which, in this case, is not all that simple.
Here is the simplest explanation.
President Trump has but one agenda. He’s about the people. He has no hidden agenda, other than to prove he could do this job better than the mostly idiots who came before him.
However, the Deep State has its agenda as well. The politicos crave the status quo. Thus, they survive on “more of the same”, afraid of doing things on the up and up.
The truth wins in the end.
