The Deep State has struck another blow against POTUS Donald Trump and his administration in its latest attempt to negate the results of the 2016 election and destroy a duly-sworn-in commander-in-chief.
The New York Times, proving once again that the Washington establishment media really are enemies of the Republic, published an “anonymous” op-ed by someone claiming to be a “senior White House official” slamming POTUS Trump and his leadership style.
Not only does the writer admit to undermining the president’s agenda, he/she goes a step further and claims that there is a “two-track presidency” that exists in the White House.
Under the headline, “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” the writer noted, “I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”
“President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader,” the writer noted – which may be the only truthful thing he/she says, given that POTUS Trump has been spied on, lied to, undermined, investigated, betrayed, and attacked every single day he’s been in office.
“The dilemma – which he does not fully grasp – is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” says the writer. “I would know. I am one of them.”
The writer goes on to state that he/she isn’t part of the Left’s #Resist movement and claims that this hidden unelected cabal really does want the president to succeed, adding that there have been successes so far like an improved economy and a rebuilding of the U.S. military.
Nevertheless, “our first duty,” the writer continues, is to America, and so many of the president’s appointees have pledged to do whatever they decide is best “to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.”
The writer goes on to make claims Trump supporters are used to hearing from the ‘media’ and Deep State: He’s argumentative, he’s inept, he’s impulsive, he’s not “moored” to conservatism or freedom, he’s prone to ranting, he likes dictators, he hates being told what to do, etc. The writer even claims that some members of Trump’s Cabinet “whispered” early on about invoking the 25th Amendment to have him declared mentally unfit for office and removed.
This was all foretold by a former NSC staffer
The op-ed reads a lot like (not coincidentally) Bob Woodward’s latest book, which was just released, titled, “Fear: Inside the Trump White House.” In it, Woodward claims to quote White House ‘insiders’ and Cabinet officials like Chief of Staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis calling POTUS an “idiot” (both men have vigorously denied those claims).
And Woodward’s book read a lot like the establishment narrative on POTUS Trump that has been constant since his inauguration: He’s an incompetent boob who cannot be left in charge.
Notice that this coordinated attack – with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation percolating in the background – is coming as we approach the 2018 midterm elections, in which Trump and Republicans can and will run on a record of massive success.
How better to steer the topic away from how well the country’s doing under GOP leadership than to continually launch bogus distractions?
“The Trump administration is suffering under withering information campaigns designed to first undermine, then delegitimize and ultimately remove the President,” it begins.
