Trump's Battle of a Lifetime

This is it, at 73 years old, Donald J. Trump is facing the battle of a lifetime.

After a failure to make Russiagate charges stick against President Trump, the anti-Trump axis, consisting of the MSM, the Democratic Party and the intelligence wing of the Deep State, has reloaded on the shaky proposition that it is somehow a major crime for Trump to ask, in a phone call, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the shady Ukranian payments made to Joe Biden's son, Hunter, while Joe Biden was vice-president.

It appears the Axis is going to make a run at it and attempt to push Trump out before the first of the year because of the call (with Biden as collateral damage).

Several Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee told CNN that they want quick action on an articles of impeachment resolution, hoping a vote could happen as soon as October.

The battle will be fierce and everything will be thrown at him.

The Washington Post is trying to now bloody Trump with this second wave attack:
President Trump told two senior Russian officials in a 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials to limit access to the remarks to an unusually small number of people, according to three former officials with knowledge of the matter.

The comments, which have not been previously reported, were part of a now-infamous meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in which Trump revealed highly classified information that exposed a source of intelligence on the Islamic State. He also said during the meeting that firing FBI Director James B. Comey the previous day had relieved “great pressure” on him.

A memorandum summarizing the meeting was limited to all but a few officials with the highest security clearances in an attempt to keep the president’s comments from being disclosed publicly, according to the former officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.
Trump is fighting back:

It turns out that the whistleblower is a secretive CIA agent with curious access to the White House goings-on.

From The Washington Post:
 The whistleblower’s identity remains obscured, the details of his work for the CIA cloaked in secrecy...The detailed notes of that call released this week show that the whistleblower’s depictions — having neither heard the conversation nor seen the transcript — were eerily accurate.
Make no mistake, this is a full-out Axis attack, starting with the whistleblower complaint to everything written about Trump from the anti-Trump crowd in the MSM.

President Trump's personal lawyer Jay Sekulow alleged that the whistleblower complaint was written by "a law firm."

"Look at the phraseology, the endnotes, and the footnotes. This wasn’t drafted by this individual. This was written by a law firm" Sekulow said on Fox News.

The whistleblower’s lawyer is Andrew Bakaj, a former CIA employee who got his start interning for Senator Chuck Schumer and then Hillary Clinton

This is a coordinated attack that has all the fingerprints of the intelligence wing of the Deep State all over it. The attacks will continue with even more allegations.

But, in the end, it will come down to the polls. If Trump can hold his Republican support, he is safe. If the Axis is able to damage him with Republicans, he becomes extremely vulnerable and may be out before the new year.

Waiting in the wings on the Republican side could be a Mitt Romney-Nikki Haley ticket.

On the Democratic side, there is, well, this to think about:


  1. Geez... I think I'll pick up the pieces of my broken boat and stay in the Bahamas thank you very much...

  2. If they follow the law (!) the entire "complaint" falls away since it was almost entirely based on second or third hand information. The law is explicit: Any complaint must be based on first hand information and if it is not it must be summarily dismissed. Trump must get rid of these attorney hacks that he surrounds himself with and hire himself some first-class legal help.

  3. Isn't it telling the Democrats are willing to go to such extremes to get rid of Trump. What the hell is going on? What have they done that necessitates such extreme means?

  4. I'm not a huge fan of Trump, but it pisses me off that he is the victim of a soft coup. Surrounded by spies and rats...set-up repeatedly for failure...attacked and undermined constantly by the MSM, the Intelligence Community, the Beltway, the Intelligentsia... His Presidency was never given much of a chance to succeed or fail on its own merits. What a tragedy. The Presidency will never be the same, and neither will our country.
