The azaleas along the side of my house have started blooming and here in coastal GA it is beginning to look like Spring. Most days lately, I try to focus on my everyday hobbies, but I read some news online, here and there throughout my day. Lately, I’ve been wondering how long this 2016 scorched earth SPIN war can rage before we reach a serious constitutional crisis. There are a lot of bad vibes growing.
The mainstream media, colluding with the Democratic Party machine, replete with their hit squad pundits in the media have escalated their attacks on all the same fronts as during the election – the Trump women are a constant hysterical fixture these days, the “Russian collusion” spin still gets spewed non-stop and the “Trump is unfit for office” spin gets ramped up constantly, through mainstream media, breathless reporting based on innuendo and 2nd and 3rd hand reports of “Trump’s thinking”.
Trump aids his enemies by responding to the media’s baiting by lashing out. Trump feeds their spin always. There’s a SPIN effort being pushed to attack FOX News as nothing more than a Trump propaganda network, which completely belies the fact that CNN and MSNBC, along with several of the largest print news media outlets are nothing more than platforms for the Democratic machine to attack Trump and spew relentless anti-Trump SPIN. Ralph Peters, who relished FOX giving him a platform to attack President Obama, jumped into that “FOX News is just a propaganda channel” spin effort with both barrels blazing, which made me wonder if he has signed a new contract with CNN or MSNBC. Call me a cynic…
Yes, FOX News is filled with massive agitation propaganda to incite Trump supporters, but CNN and MSNBC do the same thing to incite the #Resist crowd and Left. Andrea Mitchell at NBC sounds like Hillary Clinton’s biggest cheerleader and on it goes with the news media partisanship.
Trump is always being Trump, which is reacting emotionally to every taunt the Dem spinmeisters lob at him. They have mastered baiting him. Trump’s circle of enablers and fixers are now launching an offensive to feed enough spin aimed at trashing Mueller and his investigation, to bolster support among Trump supporters and FOX news watchers (large overlap in these groups), to set the stage for Trump to fire Mueller (or order Rosenstein to fire him).
That’s what these stories rehashing Mueller’s history in Boston, being spun by reporters like, Sara Carter, in recent days are really about. They are part of the Trump SPIN effort.
There’s also the problem of former FBI and intelligence officials, Comey, Brennan and Clapper, being the largest offenders, who have now become large political players in the takedown Trump effort and they are using their supposedly apolitical experience and access to intelligence for purely political purposes in their efforts to destroy President Trump. Tom Rogan wrote a good piece about Brennan’s partisan antics and how his endless media appearances attacking Trump and spewing innuendo are a disservice to the CIA and to his CIA career, while at the same time feeding the Trump “deep state” spin. Rogan suggests: “But while I, and you, should thank Brennan for his service, we should also ask him to jump off his partisan war horse.”
Brennan, Clapper, and Comey were instrumental to fomenting the Trump/Russian collusion SPIN and they have helped feed the Democratic machine SPIN effort from the beginning, so they aren’t going to slow down. In fact, they will probably escalate their attacks on Trump. They chose a side in this SPIN war when they fell in line with the Trump/Russian collusion SPIN effort before Trump was even inaugurated.
Trump is not going to cave and despite assurances from his inner-circle, I expect him to fire Mueller.
Congress has had plenty of mealy-mouthed members urge Trump not to create a constitutional crisis, but this crisis isn’t being created by Trump alone and it won’t be just about Robert Mueller’s investigation. All the movers and shakers who created this Trump/Russian collusion SPIN are equally as culpable, perhaps maybe more than Trump is, for this impending constitutional crisis. They created the Trump/Russian collusion SPIN (LIE) and they have fed it and propelled it using their willing accomplices in the mainstream media to hype it constantly.
The constitutional crisis, if it comes, won’t be just Trump’s fault. The vast, wholesale public corruption in 2016 was very much a bipartisan thing.
