What would an “insurance policy” against Trump look like?

[dropcap]L[/dropcap]et’s begin in the realm of the fanciful.
Assume, for the sake of argument, that powerful, connected people in the intelligence community and in politics worried that a wildcard Trump presidency, unlike another Clinton or Bush, might expose a decade-plus of questionable practices. Disrupt long-established money channels. Reveal secret machinations that could arguably land some people in prison.

What exactly might an “insurance policy” against Donald Trump look like?He would have to be marginalized at every turn. Strategies would encompass politics, the courts, opposition research and the media. He’d have to become mired in lawsuits, distracted by allegations, riddled with calls for impeachment, hounded by investigations. His election must be portrayed as the illegitimate result of a criminal or un-American conspiracy. (Continued…)

    Why did Clapper and Brennan end up on their bed of their energy fund after she lost?

  2. Great article (as usual)! It is unthinkable and very chilling that this is happening. Where are the real journalists that care about our Country. This is not about Republicans and Democrats. It is about our Country, America. The MSM is not protecting our Country, they are destroying the rule of law. The only hope is that the Republicans retain control of the House and Senate in the mid-terms and the investigation can be completed and all those responsible held accountable. Seriously held accountable with the force of the law.

    How can the Mueller investigation continue if the evidence clearly shows it was a fabrication.

    If you care about America and the rule of law, please vote in November!!

  3. I can’t believe this continues and these people, Mueller, FBI and CIA and many others that we probably don’t even know about are allowed to continue and get paid at the same time. Why is the government different than the private sector? If someone does something wrong or they are suspended – NO PAY or fired and NO PAY and benefits. Why are the government employees different from us? There is also NO RESPECT for anything whether it be people or property. Is that the way their parents brought them up. I would hope not as if they are no longer alive they must be turning over in their grave. We work very hard for our money and trying to keep our heads above water BUT our politicians don’t feel that way and they don’t care, they keep their pay and keep trying to distract the President and get him out of office. I don’t care if you like President Trump or not he is still our President AND IS DOING A GREAT JOB. When we don’t agree with something happening we sit down and talk and work it out. If you don’t like the laws go through the proper channels and change them. WE NEED OUR BORDERS PROTECTED AND I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH IMMIGRANTS COMING INTO THIS COUNTRY BUT COME IN THE RIGHT WAY LIKE ALL THE OTHER IMMIGRANTS CAME IN BEFORE THEM. It is not fair and to everyone and also not fair, again to the taxpayers, as we are supporting them to. Look what Obama did with our Social Security and Medicare. This should not be allowed to be touched by anyone. So besides are taxes being wasted our Social Security and Medicare is also being wasted and we are the ones who continue to pay this as we work and you know something WE GET NOTHING BACK and when my kids retire they will have nothing. I also know people who get more Social Security then I do and yet I have worked my entire life. What is wrong with this picture? WE NEED TO GET OUT AND VOTE AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU MEET. IT IS THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT AND YOU SHOULD VOTE THE WAY YOU FEEL AND WHAT IS GOOD FOR THIS COUNTRY NOT BE SWAYED BY SOME OF THE GARBAGE AND DISRESPECT GOING ON. LET’S STAND AND BE COUNTED.

    Hi Sharyl,
    A fantastic article. Our Press is so dishonest. Rachel Maddow’s spin about Strzok’s firing is Trump is whittling down the list of witnesses against him obstructing Comey’s Russian Collusion Investigation. :>)
    Thanks for bringing truth back to journalism.

  5. I”m not sure how else to pass this on, but Kasperksy Internet Security is reporting that your site is attempting to install Java malware on my computer. I blocked these. Please have somebody contact me so I can pass on the logs if I can and this can be acted on. This is a VERY serious matter.

  6. If this nonsense were true, why would the New York Times allow you to become a “best seller” – with all of this “courageous” reporting , how do the halls of power not echo with your name in angry tones and send black-bag operators to shut you down?

    Oh, because you’re just another partisan hack, not content to hold every house of government because your policies are so deeply unpopular.

  7. You have this brilliant way of presenting information so that the reader comes to a logical conclusion on their own. I can’t get enough of your writing. So, thank you for what you do.
