Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- On Sean Hannity's radio program on 24 October, 2017, I heard Hannity say he knew of the details of the bribery and extortion associated with the Uranium One scandal over a year ago. He kept the secret because he had sworn to do so.
It was well before President Trump was elected. It was after Donald Trump declared his candidacy. It suggests Donald Trump knew of this before his election.
From Sean Hannity Show, 24 October, 2017, on Youtube, 16:20 – 17:02:
I have known, for over a year, and have not told you, because I was sworn to secrecy, that there was an informant that had infiltrated this whole case.
I have known about the bribery, and the kickbacks, and the extortion, and the money laundering. and I have known that the FBI knew in 2009 and 2010 that this network was created, infiltration had taken place, and the infiltration was that Vladimir Putin wanted to get into the U.S. Uranium market because as a superpower, that is where he gets his power from.
This implies that President Trump has been three 3-D chess moves ahead of his opponents from the start.
Where would Hannity and Trump obtain such devastating information? Why was it important to keep it secret until now?
It is plausible this was the work of patriots in the intelligence agencies. People who could see the corruption on the inside, but could not see a way to stop it from the inside.
The Republican revolution in the states showed them the possibility of a president who took his oath of office seriously. A president with the fortitude and genius to root out the rot in the deep state. That president is Donald Trump. A president who would appoint judges who believed the Constitution was the law of the land, not an impediment to a “progressive” future. A president who would push back against subversion of American sovereignty to globalism. It would mean everything for supporters of the Second Amendment.
It does not mean the Trump presidency was a certainty, or that decisive victory against the deep state was a sure bet.
Poker is a better analogy than chess. Trump had a couple of aces in the hole. He had to keep his opponents in the dark about them, until the play would be decisive. A decisive play could win an enormous political pot to secure the future for the Republic and Constitutional government.
Hillary Clinton's pushing of the “Russian Collusion” ploy after the election was a gift from heaven. The opposition kept doubling down on every round of bets, while President Trump had two aces in the hole and another pair of aces in his hand.
When was the optimum time to rake in the pot? It would have to be long enough before the mid-terms to give President Trump a decisive majority in 2018. It would include sweeping out establishment, deep state RINOs. That play is happening in slow motion.
More than two weeks before the election of President Trump, I wrote “2056: Looking Backward from a Trump Future”. From the essay:
The balance was tipped by a patriotic and eclectic group of police and federal law enforcement officers, centered in the FBI and the NYPD. In the following years, thousands of agents and officers claimed to have been involved. We may never know the numbers for certain. It appears that less than a hundred were the core group. They understood that the Clinton crime machine and its tentacles had already compromised many in the top levels of government. They had witnessed how the compromised DOJ had been politicized and used to cover-up high level corruption.
What could they do? The Fast and Furious scandal showed how little whistle blowers were protected, and how effectively the establishment media was able to spin, deflect, and spike any revelations of misconduct. There had been no punishment for the politicization of the IRS. The lack of punishment showed the essential impotency of the Republican House and Senate.
Donald Trump became these law officers' last chance to save the Republic. The American Republic was set up to facilitate the bloodless transfer of power. The officers could not act while President Obama was in office. Their careers would have been destroyed to no effect. If they waited until Hillary was elected, their situation would have been worse. If any other Republican were elected, the unwritten rules of the American Aristocracy would prevent them from doing anything effective. The Republican would simply be another face of a corrupt establishment.
Trump offered a revolutionary chance. There was a narrow window of opportunity to stop the Clinton campaign. Expose the Clinton corruption, allow truth to elect an outsider, and the corruption could be rooted out under a Trump administration that had promised to “Drain the Swamp” in Washington, D.C.
The vision of the future from the essay is looking more likely than ever. Bob Corker is not running for re-election. Jeff Flake just announced that he will not run for re-election. Senator McCain has severe health problems. He is unlikely to survive to the 2018 election.
The establishment media has spent the last 10 months obsessively discrediting itself in front of the nation. President Trump is repeatedly beating them.
What other aces has President Trump been dealt, now that he is in charge of the casino?
Donald Trump is presiding over a revolution as compelling and potent as the Franklin Roosevelt revolution that moved the United States far from limited government and adherence to the Constitution. It is just beginning. It is early.
The light appearing on the horizon is looking more and more like sunrise, and less and less like an oncoming train.
