Are We Nearing Civil War?

USA –  -( President Trump may be chief of state, head of government and commander in chief, but his administration is shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down.

We are approaching something of a civil war where the capital city seeks the overthrow of the sovereign and its own restoration.

Thus far, it is a nonviolent struggle, though street clashes between pro- and anti-Trump forces are increasingly marked by fistfights and brawls. Police are having difficulty keeping people apart. A few have been arrested carrying concealed weapons.

That the objective of this city is to bring Trump down via a deep state-media coup is no secret. Few deny it.

Recently, fired Director of the FBI James Comey, a successor to J. Edgar Hoover, admitted under oath that he used a cutout to leak to The New York Times an Oval Office conversation with the president.

Goal: have the Times story trigger the appointment of a special prosecutor to bring down the president.

Comey wanted a special prosecutor to target Trump, despite his knowledge, from his own FBI investigation, that Trump was innocent of the pervasive charge that he colluded with the Kremlin in the hacking of the DNC.

Comey's deceit was designed to enlist the police powers of the state to bring down his president. And it worked. For the special counsel named, with broad powers to pursue Trump, is Comey's friend and predecessor at the FBI, Robert Mueller.

As Newt Gingrich said Sunday: “Look at who Mueller's starting to hire. … (T)hese are people that … look to me like they're … setting up to go after Trump … including people, by the way, who have been reprimanded for hiding from the defense information into major cases. …

“This is going to be a witch hunt.”

Another example. According to Daily Kos, Trump planned a swift lifting of sanctions on Russia after inauguration and a summit meeting with Vladimir Putin to prevent a second Cold War.

The State Department was tasked with working out the details.

Instead, says Daniel Fried, the coordinator for sanctions policy, he received “panicky” calls of “Please, my God, can you stop this?”

Operatives at State, disloyal to the president and hostile to the Russia policy on which he had been elected, collaborated with elements in Congress to sabotage any detente. They succeeded.

“It would have been a win-win for Moscow,” said Tom Malinowski of State, who boasted last week of his role in blocking a rapprochement with Russia. State employees sabotaged one of the principal policies for which Americans had voted, and they substituted their own.

Not in memory have there been so many leaks to injure a president from within his own government, and not just political leaks, but leaks of confidential, classified and secret documents. The leaks are coming out of the supposedly secure investigative and intelligence agencies of the U.S. government.

The media, the beneficiaries of these leaks, are giving cover to those breaking the law. The real criminal “collusion” in Washington is between Big Media and the deep state, colluding to destroy a president they detest and to sink the policies they oppose.

Yet another example is the unfolding “unmasking” scandal.

While all the evidence is not yet in, it appears an abnormal number of conversations between Trump associates and Russians were intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies.

On orders higher up, the conversations were transcribed, and, contrary to law, the names of Trump associates unmasked.

Then those transcripts, with names revealed, were spread to all 16 agencies of the intel community at the direction of Susan Rice, and with the possible knowledge of Barack Obama, assuring some would be leaked after Trump became president.

The leak of Gen. Michael Flynn's conversation with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, after Obama imposed sanctions on Russia for the hacking of the DNC, may have been a product of the unmasking operation. The media hit on Flynn cost him the National Security Council post.

Trump has had many accomplishments since his election. Yet his enemies in the media and their deep state allies have often made a purgatory of his presidency.

What he and his White House need to understand is that this is not going to end, that this is a fight to the finish, that his enemies will not relent until they see him impeached or resigning in disgrace.

To prevail, Trump will have to campaign across this country and wage guerrilla war in this capital, using the legal and political weapons at his disposal to ferret out the enemies within his own government.

Not only is this battle essential, if Trump hopes to realize his agenda, it is winnable. For the people sense that the Beltway elites are cynically engaged in preserving their own privileges, positions and power.

If the president cannot rewrite Obamacare or achieve tax reform, he should not go around the country in 2018 wailing about Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer. They are not the real adversaries. They are but interchangeable parts.

He should campaign against the real enemies of America First by promising to purge the deep state and flog its media collaborators.

Time to burn down the Bastille.

    1. Organized and coordinated actions by the people with the intent of showing our numbers and willingness should embolden our president. To appear in great numbers with our message may be all we need to do. Obviously voting in a private booth did not get our message through to the swamp in DC. Some nice Patriot Day parades or smething along those lines could show we mean business. After all there are no shiploads of over taxed tea to destroy these days!

    2. Whether each of us chooses to acknowledge it, or not, we are already in a civil war.
      The Conservative forces that managed to get their ‘Champion’ elected need to remind him(Trump) that we are still with him.
      It is my opinion that we would be better off to seek out and eliminate (via firing, recalling, terminating employment, etc.) any government employee or contractor who has not overtly demonstrated (not just stated!) their agreement with the stated policies of this administration.
      We, as a nation, would be further ahead by eliminating the opposition, laboring under greatly understaffed agencies – but with employees who are genuinely interested in doing their job correctly, until additional qualified staff can be acquired and put to work. Trying to press on with workers who are actively working against the agenda the voters voted into office is more counter productive than working understaffed in the short term.

    3. If things do end up in a civil war the so called deep state will die a swift death. There are by the governments own Guesstements 300 million privately owned firearms in this nation with 1/3 being unregistered or transferred through private sales. They Guesstimate 1 billion rounds of ammo in private ownership. Millions of people own firearms of all types including class 3 with numbers in the 10’s of thousands. Our Government can’t defeat less than 10,000 terrorists in the Middle East. What makes you think they could defeat armed insurrection? Most of the people in the military are family members of firearms owners. When push comes to shove do you honestly believe they will turn against their own families. The last thing liberals want is a civil war. No matter how much they scheme. As long as We The People remain vigilant. We will always have the last word. Be Prepared Stock Up Practice Often

      1. Seriously? Why you would want to take down the Trump Administration? Rather Conservatives should use the Trump Administration to make Conservative Christians great again by banning non-Conservative, non-Christians.

      1. Go ahead and start shooting your “enemies” Michael. I’m sure there’s a big, fat, hairy guy in the federal pen just itching to get you as his cell mate.

    4. As a avid “long-range sports enthusiast”, I offer my take on how to handle “lefty sponsored” civil war. Using the “Trinity” shooting technique, you ” reserve the first shot for anyone who voted to put BHO in office, the second shot for those who decided to put him back there again, and also wanted HRC (BHO’s Chamber Maid) elected, and the third shot for the THREAT”!

    5. We are not yet in a Civil War that we can participate in. Thus far it is the deep state versus Donald Trump. Trump coiuld win tomorrow by firing all the Oblabla holdovers that sit at the pleasure of the President, all the Oblabla special assistants, all the SESs, and all the GS 14s and 15s (who are only entitled to two weeks notice). Then replace them all with people that he trusts, people from the TEA party, and anyone else that is at least neutral.
      If the liberals engage in armed revolt, it will be the shortest revolt in the history of this planet. Liberals are incapable of cogent thought or coordinated effort. The federal gov’t’s logistical system would be against them. We patriotic and armed to the teeth People would be against them. And every federal and state organization, under arms, from the DOD to the Hawaii Fish and Game commission would be against them.

        1. The leftist turds will take a page from their Uncle Adolph’s playbook and do a “Reichstag Event” as a pretext to rise up against “The Man”. They are nothing more than liars and a waste of perfectly good breathable oxygen anyway.

    6. “A few have been arrested carrying concealed weapons”.
      Yes, armed as any prudent person would be.
      The point should not be that they have weapons, it’s the fact that the State restricts access to them and will arrest anyone who refuses to be an easy victim.

    7. “Are We Nearing Civil War?” Heck no. We’re IN a civil war now. It’s just a cold war – most of the time. Flares up to violence from time to time, but it’s a war nevertheless. Expect more flare ups as time goes by.

      1. Communism is nothing more than criminality legalized by thugs. Those Communists die just as well because bullets are equal opportunity – they don’t discriminate. But those who have killed 10 – 15,000 people a day just to enforce a particular brand of ideology do not deserve to breathe the same air as free men. Get the book “The Black Book of Communism – Terror, Crimes, and Repression” for a history of those swine. Its taken directly from their own archives.

        1. Gil’s sole purpose is to incite and inflame, as a shill for the anti-gun side. Why folks continue to engage him is beyond me. If everyone would just ignore him he’d have no stage to play on and would seek another venue. I don’t understand why this is so difficult.

    8. What the “Deep State” liberals do not realize is when the Civil War starts, They will be the first to be eliminated… permanently. I like the Israeli method, take out the traitor and eliminate their entire family and home…

      1. Ranger, that is what the Deep State want, it would be easier for them to scoop us all up during a civil war and take away our freedoms than it would be to take down President Trump with all eyes watching!
