So what did you all think of Pres Trump’s SOTU “American Heritage Pheromone Fumigation” of the Congress? Trump’s systemic use of American symbols and American success stories, in short American Patriotism, had political and media elites melting down. The videos of the Democrats during and after Trump’s speech certainly showed a lot of people who were acting like they were smelling week old road kill.
So what was Pres. Trump up too and what does the Nunes Memo have to do with it?
On the surface, Trump mentioned nothing about the FBI and Department of Justice civil rights abuses of his campaign and the spying on him during the first six months of his Administration, detailed in the Nunes Memo. Despite the President reading and vetting it during his preparation for the State of The Union Address and executing plans against these scoff law internal security thugs.
Huge hint — It was part and parcel of Trump’s long term political strategy tree in setting up the Nunes Memo release last Friday (2 Feb 2018). So far only Daniel Greenfield over at Frontpage understands anything at all of what Trump was doing.
The Nunes Memo and the Defenestration of The Deep State
The American Republic is about rule of law through constitutional process.
Publicly exercising those atrophied constitutional process muscles is another “American Heritage Pheromone” which will hearten and increase the size of Trump’s governing coalition while disheartening the Left, which hates America.
And Trump is not taking his time on process because he loves constitutional process for its own sake. There are structural reasons. He is multi-tasking like mad on every front — cultural, economic, political and national security. Plus major Federal espionage investigations that can survive real court challenge without spoiling sources and methods of intelligence — investigations of the type the Chairman Nunes and Inspector General Horowitz have kicked off — run a minimum of a year and usually closer to two.
Additionally, this isn’t a foreign espionage case. It is more akin to a major organized crime family case with a huge amount of political corruption and with an ideologically aligned national-corporate media support wing we have never seen before in such cases. The Federal prosecutor hand book is getting 10 new chapters for political & media corruption.
That said, the major behind the scenes investigative phase of this process is over. What is happening now is a choreographed dance of Federal prosecutorial pressure on the primary Deep State suspects while they are under surveillance to get the small fry to roll over for the big fish.
The signs and portents make clear Trump is running on a political-judicial process time line which will see many big fish in the FBI & DoJ indited and given very public hand and leg maniacal ‘perp walks’ in September 2018.
Another and related “multi-task for instance” here is Trump is party building like mad. The mass turn over of the GOP in the House is a purge of the sexual harassment abusers ahead of a mass release of sexual harassment pay out data by Speaker Ryan after most of the Democratic primaries are over. Likely in late August to have the maximum disruptive affect for setting up the Chairman Nunes/FISA Abuse perp walks.
The key thing here is the President Nixon and Watergate example. The GOP did not double down to save Nixon and took the Presidency and Senate seven years later in 1980.
The Democrats are Leftists who live inside an identity bubble. Per the SJW handbook, they are going to double down and double down some more. This is setting them up to suffer a post-1860’s generational run of being out of power as the “Party of Sedition.”
IMO, Trump has his priorities right — the economy, disassembling the Left’s internal security state, closing the border, taking down the “Axis of Evil” abroad and re-branding/rebuilding the GOP in his populist “Heritage American” image for the long term.
Deep State Schadenfreude & Popcorn Giggles
Now for some popcorn eating giggles — remember that Federal prosecutorial pressure template? All the Leftist Deep State perps in the DoJ, FBI and wider intelligence community are utterly familiar with it and have executed it for decades.
