It was in November of 2016 that tens of millions of Americans woke to the reality that their candidate, Donald Trump, had won the presidential election and, against all (media) odds, had defeated perhaps one of the most corrupt politicians in the history of our country. The other part of that equation, however, was that there were tens of millions of heart-wrenched, seething Americans who looked upon the face of our president and wished him dead…Kathy Griffin, Robert DeNiro and Hollywood, et al, notwithstanding.
This was also a moment in time when, as the reality of a Trump presidency was sinking into our psyches that the euphoria we were feeling was a disgust and fever-riddled hatred in the professional political Establishmentariat. Hillary Clinton, after not even having had the courtesy or appreciation for all of her supporters who fell upon her sword throughout months and months of a grueling campaign that saw their candidate cough uncontrollably during debates, or crumble and stumble through one meager event after another, to simply speak to them on the night of her historic loss, instead sending a bespectacled John Podesta out to the platform to bumble his way through a faux-positive message of “This isn't over yet!” That, despite the fact that she had already called and conceded to our president!
Hillary, however, was not the only person completely and utterly debased and humiliated by this defeat. There was also Hillary's ex-boss, President Barack Hussein Obama, who had put all of his legacy eggs in her basket and allowed her to run with them. Obama may have been throwing her a huge bone by granting her the consolation prize of Secretary of State following her humiliating defeat to him eight years earlier, but this was a T-Rex-sized femur when he told an audience, “Think of Hillary Clinton's future election as my third term,” or something close to that.
Out of a completely embarrassing loss for Clinton, Obama, the DNC, the Fake News Industrial Complex, the Celebrity Cabal, and the foreign globalist leaders abroad and whose lobbyists actively work within the halls of Washington, DC, there was only one remedy. It was a drug so addictive and so very satisfying to those involved (as well as completely illegal) that they could not resist the temptation as it was offered by their dealer-in-chief, George Soros. The drug was called, The Resistance.
Born of the necessity to completely destroy the presidency of Donald Trump before it had even begun, Democrats sent out a message to their Fake News Media toadies and stenographers and the missive was clear: “Don't worry, take heart, dear comrades! We hear your frustration. We know what you're feeling. We're going to stop this. We're going to reverse this miscarriage of electoral justice. We are going to change the outcome of the 2016 election, even if we have to bend the rules or break the law to do it! We are the Resistance and we exist in every level of the government and within the media and will never allow this tyrant to ascend to be Leader of the Free World when that position was tailor-fit for Hillary Clinton. The Resistance has been called to action and nothing that they can do will halt our march toward the ultimate goal of power and influence.”
Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was crystal clear in his assertions in 2016 when he gleefully warned to Rachel Maddow of President-Elect Donald Trump, “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you!” That was not a misquote, nor was it glib or shooting from the hip. He was absolutely serious and it has since been proven to be absolutely true and correct. The Deep State is not only real and a clear threat to Trump and his supporters, but it is still to this moment as you are reading these very words, working diligently to reverse the 2016 election in the hopes of installing Hillary Clinton as queen.
In 2016, Vanity Fair published an article, “Democrats Are Paving the Way to Impeach Donald Trump.” Think about this…the article was written less than a month after Trump's election. The Trump transition team, led by Kellyanne Conway, had just begun to reach out to the company involved in that transition to take over the Obama White House. The head of that company was none other than Max Stier. You may recognize the name because he was the very person who just a couple of short weeks ago had come forward to launch new sex allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh while they were attending Yale University. Stier was at the helm of the transition team that was working to “more smoothly integrate the two parties” while the Obamas vacated 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and the Trumps moved into their new palatial estate.
The New York Times reported that Trump would not divest his business, but instead, adhere to a legal strategy that would separate him and his daughter, Ivanka, from the Trump Organization, while handing over responsibilities to his sons, Eric and Donald Jr.. In an interview with Fox News airing over the weekend, Trump reiterated his plan. “I'm going to have nothing to do with it. And I'll be honest with you, I don't care about it anymore,” he said.
And then the president-elect canceled, three days before the big event. “I will hold a press conference in the near future to discuss the business, Cabinet picks and all other topics of interest. Busy times!” he tweeted Monday. “No new deals will be done during my term(s) in office.”
Transition officials explained the delay as a simple logistical issue—the task of nominating a Cabinet and building a government has taken up more time than anticipated. Kellyanne Conway touted it as a reflection of Trump’s incredible accomplishments. “Normally we have politicians moving from political job to political job. In this case, we have a very successful businessman, who’s brilliant and a billionaire, who has assets and holdings all over the globe, and that needs to have a transfer of power through the proper channels,” she said on CNN.
Those global holdings are exactly what are causing concern, particularly because the president-elect has not released his tax returns, which would give the American people a fuller sense of his business dealings. What is known is that the Trump Organization is in the business of making deals—licensing ones, real-estate ones, hotel ones, branding ones—all over the world. The potential for conflicts of interest—either from foreign officials trying to cozy up to Trump or Trump making decisions in office that benefit his children or post–White House life—is obvious and unacceptable.
And so, we can see that already, the machinations of the Pelosi/Nadler/Schiff impeachment had begun, its first target would be the emoluments clause and Trump's international dealings, previous to his election, would be held against him. It was the first target, but by no means would it be the last. This was just the beginning.
