Donald Trump Just Had One of the Best Weeks in Presidential History

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This truly has been a week to remember, and not just because of impeachment.  – In fact, it could be argued that the idiotic ending to the Democrats’ impeachment sham turns out to only modestly important in the context of the other major  events that happened over the last seven days. The impeachment sham notwithstanding, President Trump just had what may well have been the greatest week of his entire presidency, and that is a truly great thing for America.

Let’s take a look at this truly momentous week:

Markets – This country has seldom seen a run in the stock markets like one seen over the past five trading days. The NASDAQ set a new record high on every one of those days, ending the week with a record closing streak of 8 consecutive trading days. The Dow and S&P 500 set new records on all but one day during the week. This is WINNING on such a grand scale that even the recession promoters in the corrupt mainstream news media have given up.

USMCA – San Fran Nan Pelosi was so embarrassed by her absurd articles of impeachment that, after sitting on the President’s signature trade deal for 8 months, she finally decided to bring it to a vote on the day after the impeachment vote took place. She and her pathetic, demented fellow Democrats desperately tried taking credit for this extremely favorable trade deal with our country’s two largest trading partners, but nobody was buying it. The Senate also approved the deal late in the week.

China Phase 1 trade deal – The President also reached a deal with America’s third-largest trading partner during the same week USMCA passed in congress. Again, this deal is extremely favorable to the United States and its farmers and consumers, and will, along with USMCA, set the U.S. economy up to have another year of roaring growth in 2020.

Durham closing in on Brennan – The week was filled with clear signals that the investigation led by U.S. Attorney John Durham and sanctioned by AG William Barr is real and closing in on the members of the Coup Cabal. The first signal came in a Thursday New York Times Deep State cover piece detailing the fact that Durham is now taking a very close look at ex-CIA Director/communist/radical Islam sympathizer John Brennan. Durham is seeking all of Brennan’s written, digital and phone records from his time at CIA, with a special focus on his 2016 communications with former FBI Director and current National Teenage Drama Queen Jim Comey. Oh, my.

Barr pillories Comey in Fox News interview – In an interview with Martha MacCallum on Fox News later Thursday evening, AG Barr sent another clear signal that stuff is getting real with his and Durham’s investigation, slamming Comey for his blatant prevarications about his role in fixing the 2016 election for the Pantsuit Princess and later effort to frame President Trump. If you haven’t watched Barr’s interview, you should. It will definitely make you feel better about things.

Rogers cooperating with Durham – Friday evening brought the delightful news that former NSA Director and national hero Admiral Mike Rogers has been cooperating with the Barr/Durham investigation for months now, according to a report in The Intercept. It was Adm. Rogers who, in mid-2016, discovered thousands of Obama-era violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Section 702(17) surveillance process, and the hundreds of illegal unmaskings of U.S. citizens carried out by high Obama officials like Susan Rice and U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power. It was also Adm. Rogers who discovered that Obama had bugged Trump Tower during the post-election transition and immediately warned then-President-elect Trump, after which the Transition team moved to a Trump-owned golf resort in New Jersey. The cooperation of Rogers proves the seriousness of the Barr/Durham effort.

Brexit Vote in Parliament – It received precious little notice in the corrupt, globalist U.S. media, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit plan received overwhelming approval in the new, post-election British Parliament. The House of Commons passed the Withdrawal Agreement Bill in a 358 to 234 vote. This sets the stage for Britain to formally withdraw from the globalist European Union by January 31, which in turn sets the stage for President Trump and PM Johnson to execute a massive trade deal between the two giant trading partners.

Impeachment – The President even managed to turn the Democrats’ sham impeachment vote into a net positive for him, holding another massive rally in Battle Creek, MI that began while the absurd vote was being counted. New polls issued simultaneous to and immediately after the vote showed public sentiment moving “massively in the president’s favor” according even to CNN’s own polling analysts. San Fran Nan’s stupid tactic of refusing to communicate the articles of impeachment over to the Senate will only add to the public’s growing disgust with her and her depraved, demented and despicable caucus in the House.

Judges, judges, and more judges – While San Fran Nan was counting her votes in the House, Cocaine Mitch was doing what he does best: Confirming 13 more Trump-appointed judges to the federal bench. This brings the total number of Trump judges added to the federal judiciary in just three years to a whopping 187. That, folks, is WINNING for the long-term.

Turning Point USA – President Trump capped off what was possibly the greatest single week of his presidency with a speech at the meeting of the group Turning Point USA. For those unfamiliar with it, Turning Point USA is a political action group organized by and for the Millennial generation. Conventional “wisdom” tells us that President Trump has a hard time connecting with the younger voting age public.

Take a look at he reception the President received from this group Saturday evening and judge for yourselves:

Any questions?

Boom: Admiral Mike Rogers is Cooperating With Barr and Durham

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this WINNING yet? How could you be? – It never gets old.  On Friday, yet again, every major stock market index achieved record high closes, running the streak of record high closes on the NASDAQ to an astonishing eight straight days. With this week’s congressional passage of the USMCA trade deal with Mexico and Canada and the closing of a very favorable Phase 1 trade deal with China, there is no telling how high the markets might rise in the U.S. and globally.

You might not like President Donald John Trump, but your 401(k) loves him.

One more reason to have faith comes to light, and it’s a big one. – In case you missed it, yesterday’s Campaign Update Part II advised you of very good reasons to have faith that AG William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham really are working hard to bring the members of the Obama-era Coup Cabal to justice. Late in the day on Friday, another very good reason – perhaps the most compelling of all reasons – to have faith came to light via a report at The Intercept.

According to that report, retired Admiral and former Director of the U.S. National Security Agencey (DNSA) Mike Rogers has been cooperating with Mr. Durham’s investigation for several months now:

RETIRED ADM. MICHAEL ROGERS, former director of the National Security Agency, has been cooperating with the Justice Department’s probe into the origins of the counterintelligence investigation of the Trump presidential campaign’s alleged ties to Russia, according to four people familiar with Rogers’s participation.

Rogers has met the prosecutor leading the probe, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, on multiple occasions, according to two people familiar with Rogers’s cooperation. While the substance of those meetings is not clear, Rogers has cooperated voluntarily, several people with knowledge of the matter said.

It was Rogers, in his role as DNSA, who, during a review in mid-2016, initially discovered thousands of Obama-era violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Section 702(17) surveillance process, and the hundreds of illegal unmaskings of U.S. citizens carried out by high Obama officials like Susan Rice and U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power. Rogers discovered and reported the fact that those illegal searches were being carried out not just by Obama officials, but by government contractors as well. He quickly blew the whistle on all of that and shut it down.

Even more, it was Rogers who, in November of 2016, discovered the fact that the Obama people had in fact bugged Trump Tower and the Trump Transition operations that were taking place there. Rogers quickly met with President-elect Trump and informed him of this fact. The very next day, the Trump Transition operations were moved to a Trump-owned golfing resort in New Jersey.

As noted by The Intercept:

Rogers’s voluntary participation, which has not been previously reported, makes him the first former intelligence director known to have been interviewed for the probe.

“He’s been very cooperative,” one former intelligence officer who has knowledge of Rogers’s meetings with the Justice Department said.

Put simply: Admiral Rogers is a guy who knows where all of the bodies are buried in this neverending coup operation against President Trump. He knows everything that happened in the 2016 attempt to fix the election in favor of Hillary Clinton, and he knows everything that took place in the months leading up to the hiring of Robert Mueller to perform as Special Counsel. He knows who all the players were, all the way up to Barack Hussein Obama his own self.

There is no reason whatsoever to believe that Admiral Rogers is anything other than the highest caliber patriot. The news that he has been cooperating with Barr and Durham no doubt has all the bad actors scrambling to find some new narrative to deploy to their corrupt toadies in the media to try to discredit him.

Expect some nasty pieces based solely on “unnamed sources” targeting Adm. Rogers to suddenly appear in the pages of the New York Times and Washington Post in the days to come. Because that’s how all of this works.

Have faith.

That is all.

About That January 6 Meeting Barr Referred To…

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In my rush to get a partial transcript of William Barr’s interview on Fox News this morning posted up, I failed to include any explanatory notes. I thought it was more important to get the information out there for those who don’t have access to a TV during a workday than to take time for an analysis, particularly since the great majority of what Barr had to say is self-explanatory. But this has created confusion with some readers, particularly related to the “January 6” meeting to which Mr. Barr refers in the passage below:

Hemmer: Republicans have said for months that Brennan, Clapper, maybe Comey have had it in for Trump. Do you believe that’s the case?

Barr: “Again, I’m not gonna speculate about their motives.”

Hemmer: In the period between election day and the inauguration, did anyone in government take action to justify their decisions?

Barr:I think there were some very strange developments during that period – that’s one of the things we want to look into. Such as the handling of the meeting on January 6 between the intelligence chiefs and the President and the leaking of information subsequent to that meeting.”

Hemmer: Was that meeting in New York City? In Trump Tower?

Barr: “Yes.”

Hemmer: What questions do you have about what happened that day?

Barr: [smiling] “Again, I’m not gonna get into that. It’s one of the things we need to look at.”

[End]

Here is a video of the full Barr Interview for your viewing pleasure:

 

Ok, so, what “January 6” meeting is he talking about, and why is it important? Well, it’s very important, and the fact that Mr. Barr is focused on that meeting to the extent that he gives it specific mention in this interview is very telling.

The meeting in question took place on January 6, 2017 at Trump Tower in New York City. The ostensible purpose of the meeting was to give the then-President-elect a full “intelligence briefing” from the Obama Administration’s senior intelligence advisors.

Backstory:

  • Less than a week before, either the New York Times or Washington Post – I forget which and does it really matter? – had run a hit piece claiming Trump was going to come into office unprepared because he had yet to accept this meeting. Trump famously stated that he did not need to be briefed by these skunks “because I’m smart.”
  • It is key to remember that by that time, Trump already knew that the Obama flunkies had been spying on his campaign and transition team, because NSA Director Mike Rogers had informed him of that reality shortly after Election Day. The briefing from Rogers prompted Trump to move his transition headquarters out of Trump Tower to a nearby resort property he owns.
  • This no doubt enraged James Comey, James Clapper and John Brennan, and they redoubled their efforts to press Trump for this “briefing” meeting. Trump finally relented and scheduled the meeting for January 6.
  • Present for the meeting were FBI Director Comey, CIA Director Brennan, Rogers and a representative the Office of Director of National Intelligence.  Clapper was then the DNI, but was not at the meeting personally. This is important, so remember it.
  • It was at this meeting that Comey informed Trump of the existence and basic content of the infamous Steele dossier, which by this time had already been used twice as the almost-sole justification for FISA warrants to spy on Trump officials.
  • Comey and Brennan have publicly argued in recent days about which of them insisted upon including this bogus dossier in this meeting – neither of them wants to accept responsibility for that decision, probably due to all the speculation that it was used in order to frighten and intimidate the incoming President.
  • Also remember that Trey Gowdy told Fox News last week that Comey and Brennan created an email trail leading up to this meeting that Gowdy believes will be incredibly damaging to both men once it is revealed.

Other key points here:

  • The January 6 meeting came a day after Comey, Brennan and Clapper, and reportedly Deputy AG Sally Yates as well, had briefed President Obama and AG Loretta Lynch. What do you suppose was discussed at that meeting?
  • Comey testified to congress that his “mission” – his word – for the Jan. 6 meeting was to let Trump know about the existence of the Steele Dossier. Who gave him that “mission”?
  • Comey testifed under oath that the reason he did not inform Trump that the dossier was – in Comey’s words – “salacious and unverified” in this meeting is because it was “not my mission for this meeting.”  Again, who gave him that “mission”?
  • Important to note here that above Comey in the Obama Administration’s pecking order sat Loretta Lynch, Brennan, Clapper, Yates and Barack Hussein Obama his own self. Any of those folks had the authority to assign Comey that “mission” for the Jan. 6 meeting.
  • We know that Comey left that meeting, called Clapper and said “Mission accomplished.”
  • Later that day, we know that someone leaked the contents of the Steele Dossier to CNN and CNN began reporting on its existence. Speculation here is that CNN actually already had the dossier in-hand well before that, but insisted it wasn’t news-worthy unless the incoming president had been informed of its existence. [“Mission Accomplished.”]
  • Shortly after that, Clapper was rewarded with a big contributor’s contract by CNN. CNN actually won awards for its fake reporting on the fake dossier.

Given all of that, does it make more sense to you when you see William Barr say this?:

I think there were some very strange developments during that period – that’s one of the things we want to look into. Such as the handling of the meeting on January 6 between the intelligence chiefs and the President and the leaking of information subsequent to that meeting.”

That’s why the Jan. 6, 2017 meeting at Trump Tower is a very, very important event in all of this. You unwind the discussions within the Obama Administration cabal that took place in advance of and right after that meeting, you have the key to the entire scheme.

Friday Was a Terrible, Awful, Very Bad Day for the Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff is back and lying like never before. – The former deep state U.S. attorney who is also the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee has gone eerily quiet in the public space in recent weeks, but he penned an op-ed for the New York Times on Friday.  In that piece, he hilariously advises his fellow Democrats running for congress this year to not talk about impeaching the President of the United States should they gain a majority in the House of Representatives.  His reason?  Why, Democrats don’t want to give the public the crazy idea that they’re trying to “nullify an election.”  Which, of course, is exactly what ol’ Bugeyes has been trying to do in his role on the House Intel Committee for the last 16 months.  Breathtaking hypocrisy.

Speaking of breathtaking hypocrites, race-baiting CNN fake host Don Lemon told some other fake journalist who was interviewing him that Kanye West lacks critical thinking skills.  Lemon claimed that his own critical thinking skills – you know, the kind that have led him to determine that an alleged affair with a porn star is a bigger story than record-low unemployment and peace on the Korean peninsula – tell him that President Trump may not be a “racist,” but he is at least “racist-adjacent.”  By the same token, my own critical thinking skills have allowed me to determine that Don Lemon may not be a raging nitwit, but he is at least raging-nitwit-adjacent.

Several very interesting developments related to the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play on Friday, so we’ll go through them in order here:

National Security Agency Director Navy Admiral Mike Rogers offically retired, turning over his command to Army General Paul Nakasone.  Rogers, if you remember, has played a key role over the last 20 months in uncovering the rampant abuse of the FISA process at the DOJ and FBI, in their efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump transition team, and as it is now becoming apparent, the Trump administration.  Rogers is also the official who met with President-elect Trump shortly after the election, alerting him to the fact that his transition team’s offices in Trump Tower had been bugged, prompting the move of the team to another Trump property the next day.

Interestingly, Rogers’ retirement will allow him to testify in any trials of the bad actors at DOJ and the FBI that take place in the future, something he would have not been able to do had he remained in his job.  Possibly just a coincidence, but a potentially very useful one.

Speaking of bad actors at the DOJ and FBI, former FBI General Counsel and former DOJ lawyer Lisa Page officially “resigned” from the positions they’d been demoted to yesterday.  Both are subjects of investigation for possible criminal wrongdoing in all the various campaign-related shenanigans at the DOJ/FBI during 2016 and 2017.

Page, of course, is the texting buddy of FBI super agent Peter Strzok, with whom she reportedly shared more than 50,000 texts over several months in 2016/2017.  She also served as the legal counsel to the very sweaty ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, one of the main fixers in the Clinton email scandal, among other things.

Baker is under investigation for the apparently very common FBI practice of leaking classified information to the news media.  Naturally, upon the announcement of his “retirement”, Baker received this praising tweet from fired ex-FBI Director James Comey, himself a serial leaker of classified information:

Deep state snakes of a feather, peas in a pod and all of that.

The retirements of these two bad actors likely means that they have provided all the information they have provide to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber and their investigative staff.  My belief is that the only reason they weren’t fired outright last winter was because they chose to become cooperating witnesses.  Like Strzok, they’ve rolled over and made deals in exchange for spilling the beans.  Now they get to go home and get their affairs in order while they await possible indictments and trials.  Just an educated guess, but it sure fits the facts as we know them.

Speaking of IG Michael Horowitz, his long-awaited final report of his investigation into all these bad actors appears to have been pushed off yet again, but this may ultimately be a good thing.  Horowitz sent a letter to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy stating that he was pursuing “new leads” in his investigation of the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email abuse, so Gowdy announced yesterday that he is postponing the date of the IG’s appearance before his committee, which had been planned for May 8.

It may be important to note that the previously-mentioned Andrew McCabe led the FBI’s fake investigation noted above for many months.  Could these “new leads” mean McCabe – who has been oddly silent for the past few weeks after initially lashing out publicly following his firing – has also decided to make a deal with the investigators?  It’s a logical bet.  We’ll see.

Finally (I know this is getting long, but bear with me), Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his merry band of Clinton/Obama hacks had a very, very bad day in federal court on Friday.  They had the misfortune of drawing Federal Judge T.S. Ellis III, a Reagan appointee who has actually read the U.S. Constitution and respects it, as the judge in their case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

When Mueller’s minions began to argue their case against Manafort, which involves allegations of bank fraud that took place many years before Donald Trump ever announced his intention to run for president, Judge Ellis cut in, saying:

“I don’t see what relation this indictment has with what the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Ellis said, according to Politico’s Josh Gerstein. “What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment.”

Ellis further questioned by what authority the Mueller team was even conducting such an investigation to charges wholely-unrelated to any “Russia Collusion,” and demanded that they present him with the authorizing documents from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that ostensibly establish their authority.  He gave the hacks two weeks to produce those documents.

This is crucial since Rosenstein himself has refused to produce those same documents to various congressional committees that have made repeated demands to see them.  Rosenstein obviously does not want anyone to know what those authorizing memos contain.

But now a federal judge wants to see them, and a federal judge, unlike congress, has the authority to hold the hacks and Rosenstein himself in contempt of court and toss them into the pokey if they don’t comply.

Oh, my, Mueller and Rosenstein obviously did not see this coming.  Friday, May 18 is going to be a very fun day indeed.

Stay tuned.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down President Trump is falling apart America.

That is all.
