Over and over, we’ve said it.
Trump will not “go down” without taking everything he can with him, and increasingly, it seems he’s determined to take down witnesses, other countries, and our nation itself, if it saves His Greatness.
Yesterday, in a column infested with Trump self-righteous rage-tweets, we noted that Trump floated the threat of “civil war” should law-abiding citizens determine that Trump be impeached. We were not the only one’s who noticed. Conservative columnist Matt Lewis of The Daily Beast tore into Trump’s unveiled threat:
“In January 1973, National Lampoon featured an infamous cover declaring: ‘If You Don’t Buy This Magazine We’ll Kill This Dog.’” he began. “I was reminded of that when Donald Trump sent a similarly desperate tweet this weekend, suggesting that ‘If You Don’t Stop This Impeachment My People and I Will Start a Civil War.’”
Of course he will. At no point in his life has Trump ever acknowledged anything greater than himself. If his presidency is threatened by Americans, he will absolutely wage war – limited only by what he’s able to get away with – on other Americans.
Not only is Trump not interested in “what’s best for the nation,” not only is Trump going to spend 100% of his time and effort in saving himself, he will take hostages. Not that it should surprise anyone, after all, holding funding to Ukraine hostage for Trump’s personal gain is how he got into this mess in the first place. Trump doesn’t learn well, he will only accelerate the pace of his lawlessness.
It will all come undone, absent some sort of pushback by Republicans, Republicans in office, with the ability to stop this man.
Trump is also intimidating witnesses – another felony, tweeting out messages to anyone who might dare cross him. We will find you.
So if the so-called “Whistleblower” has all second hand information, and almost everything he has said about my “perfect” call with the Ukrainian President is wrong (much to the embarrassment of Pelosi & Schiff), why aren’t we entitled to interview & learn everything about….

….the Whistleblower, and also the person who gave all of the false information to him. This is simply about a phone conversation that could not have been nicer, warmer, or better. No pressure at all (as confirmed by Ukrainian Pres.). It is just another Democrat Hoax!

“Learn everything about the whistleblower” and also “the person who gave all the false information to him.”
Learn everything about him.
It doesn’t take a MENSA member to note the twisted logic here. If the phone call is the only issue, and the phone call is perfect, why do we need to know anything about the “whistleblower,” Mr. “President”?
Because Trump wants that whistleblower endangered, in fear. Moreover, he wants potential future whistleblowers in fear. This is the same man who called witnesses to the Mueller investigation “rats.” This is the same man who states that his supporters will erupt in civil war over his impeachment, Trump knows damn well that his “supporters” will immediately endanger this whistleblower. That is the point.
We have whistleblower laws precisely because people in power could exact revenge upon the person highlighting the abuse of power. Those laws purposefully keep the whistleblower anonymous, or at least unknown to the person investigated. Congress itself tests the whistleblower’s integrity, and facts, Congress “confronts” the accuser.
Trump is the president of the United States, he is not “asking” why he doesn’t get to know the identity of the person. He knows – or has people who tell him – the reason anonymity is written into the law. And it is driving Trump crazy. Like any mob boss, Trump wants this “witness” and all who helped him or her, destroyed.
It will all come undone, and not just whistleblowers and our civil peace. We’re now reaching out to create chaos across the globe.
Inspector General Bill Barr is currently traveling the world to drum-up evidence into … no one is exactly sure what Barr’s precise end goal might be. Though Vox has a great run-down on the general outlines, here. And this Tweet sure seems relevant:
In May, Trump told reporters he hoped Barr “looks at the UK, and I hope he looks at Australia, and I hope he looks at Ukraine.” 🤔 pic.twitter.com/JibKa8f3UO

Barr is committed to “investigating the investigators,” which is what one does when guilty of a crime, make the cops the issue. The first thing one does when defending someone caught with backpacks full of drugs is accuse the cops of an unconstitutional investigation. This is “defense 101.” With this particular crime, that translates into condemning the entire United States intelligence community, as needed, to save this one man, Trump.
The theme repeats.
Have no doubt that the axis of corrupted power, Trump-Pompeo-Barr, will take down whomever, whatever, whenever and wherever needed to save themselves, over their party, their country or their god. This is bigger than the “United States,” in their mind. This is about protecting an international crime syndicate, headed by some extremely powerful and wealthy people, people spread across Eastern Europe and now into the offices in the West Wing. If one part falls, it all falls, it comes undone, and so does anything touching it.
It is week two.
