From the very beginning they were on a mission to destroy a candidate and newly elected president; they failed.
They thought they had all the answers,
and were confident and sure,
and felt their power and positions,
were certain and secure.
They cast aside dignity and virtue,
to fulfill their darkest dreams,
but in the end all of their efforts,
were crushed with their plans and schemes.
It was a given from the very beginning, and continued unabated for four years. I recently received an email from a highly respected and prestigious organization that for security reasons will remain anonymous. The communication consisted of multiple pages of a document that spelled out what I will call a “Deep State” plan by the Democratic Party and its enablers in the media, big business, and Silicon Valley to destroy Donald Trump. The fact is, however, this information is of little or no consequence today; most of us know who and what took place, so why rehash it? I say why not, because it proves that for all their devious efforts, the man who became president still bested them all.
From what I have read, this is a contemptible indictment of a candidate and then president by a cadre of leftists that from the beginning could not accept the candidacy of Donald Trump, and the results of a legitimate election. Most of the document revolves around Trump and the Republicans, with scant mention of the Democratic candidate at the time, Hillary Clinton, who would be well-defended and supported by the media. I have summarized for our purposes here the content, and placed in quotes the actual comments made in the document.
The document begins on June of 2015, as the “buffoonish self-serving king and his prim and proper queen descended from on high in their golden tower,” to speak to the commoners gathered beneath them. After a few “brief inflammatory and racist remarks” the pair turned and ascended, some applauded while others, the press mainly, were left standing around stunned, dumbfounded, and incensed at what they just witnessed. [From this point on whenever I use “they,” unless I specify otherwise, it will apply to the entities I mentioned previously.]
After they regained some composure in the days following Mr. Trump’s announcement in the race for the Republican candidacy for president, they had a good hearty laugh. To think this “loathsome creature” actually believed he had even the slightest of chances to become president was absurd. He was a real estate baron, a television host, and was considered to be more in line with that of a liberal in his cultural and political persuasions. “The right would have no use for the likes of him.”
One after another Republicans joined in the “circus of clowns” for the presidency. There were several however they deemed to be legitimate and that would pose a challenge to their candidate; they would deal with each of them. The total roundup included Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Jim Gilmore, Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, John Kasich, George Pataki, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, and Scott Walker. Of this group they considered Bush, Christie, Cruz, Graham, Kasich, and Rubio as possible threats that must be monitored, and if necessary dealt with. At this point they still thought Trump as a non-entity, “unworthy of further consideration and a bad joke.”
The Democratic contenders included Lincoln Chafee, Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, and Jim Webb. They believed Webb was a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and is more a centrist, perhaps even to the right. The authors state here emphatically that they would do all in their power to make certain that Mrs. Clinton, the "chosen one," is the candidate that will eventually aspire to the presidency.
They discuss the Republican primary debates that began with the first on August 6, 2015. They became concerned as it appeared Trump was standing out beyond the others, and that he was “overwhelming, bombastic, crude, and divisive.” His attacks both in the debates and out campaigning were increasingly being noticed as were the pet names he created for some of the other candidates.
They believed that Mr. Trump was ignorant of the facts, and uninformed on matters of policy, both domestic and international, and explained how they would step up the attacks, both policy-wise and personal, going so far as to include innuendo and factually deficient information on the Republicans, Trump in particular, which they did, even giving a substantial amount of the money spent on this effort.
The document then discusses the Democratic presidential debates that began on October 13, 2015 through April 14, 2016, and also a number of forums in various venues. Hillary Clinton was far ahead of her opponents in the polls at 43.3%; the media made sure her positives were heralded, and any negative reports by unfriendly sources were disputed and dispelled. Bernie Sanders was at 25.1%, while the others were well below 1%. By the second debate, Webb, O’Malley and Chafee had dropped out of the race.
There were twelve Republican debates, the last on March 10, 2016. The document states that the one good thing was the conflict and constant defiance and insults by Trump toward his fellow Republicans, much of it instigated by the media, while their candidate was speaking before adoring audiences.
The document reveals something that should come as no surprise, but then to some may come as a shock. It seems that a gathering took place in June of 2016. The assembled were, in their words, highly respected and powerful members in the Democratic Party, media, business, entertainment and politics. They met in a secret location somewhere outside of Washington, DC. They discussed what many of them felt were, by all indications, a Trump primary victory, and how their candidate would deal with this “blowhard and egomaniac.”
They were correct in their assertions. On July 19, 2016 Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence received the official nomination for president and vice president respectively, and on November 08, 2016, went on to defeat the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine.
The document from this point explained how they would map out their strategy, and agreed to pull out all stops to ensure that Donald Trump would fail. It says even if it meant dirty gutter politics, all fairness and honesty would be cast aside, to achieve their desired goal, to destroy the newly elected president and his family if necessary.
They would rely heavily on their media cohorts to engage in a relentless, unabated assault, and would heavily count on their Deep State operatives inside the government bureaucracy.
They, with the media’s compliance, made certain the news would dwell on Trump’s taxes, Russian collusion, and past indiscretions. And what manifested beyond those issues was the Mueller investigation, the Steel dossier, General Flynn, the "Golden Showers," the FBI against Trump, impeachment, and Crossfire Hurricane. But as I stated previously, President Trump beat them at their own game; he gave as good as he received, and rose above the fray.
When I attempted to print out the document, it would not accept my request. I contacted the individual who sent me the email, and was told a block was placed. The individual advised me the document was legitimate and its source must remain anonymous. Signatories on the document were blocked out, but they were numerous. I was asked not to save the information, and after reading it, I should delete the document, which I did.
