White House Changes Communications Team – Sanders and Scaramucci Presser (video)…

The “Big Ugly” Preparation – President Trump has announced Anthony Scaramucci as the new White House Communications Director. Mrs. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is also announced as the permanent White House Press Secretary. Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer is released from his duties; Spicer will finish out August and then exit the White House.

Video from today’s Press Briefing follows:

.

This communications transition must be considered against the backdrop of an executive office accepting the intransigent nature of the DC Administrative State, the Deep State and financial interests, has finally reached a point where direct conflict is unavoidable.

President Trump’s election was the disruption the American electorate voted for. The DC based Administrative state will not allow this disruption.

The middle-class economic agenda, the primary focus of the Trump administration, is now being intentionally blocked by the UniParty and their lobbying financiers in the professional political community.

The UniParty decision to impede healthcare reform is, necessarily, also carrying the motive of specific intent to derail the sequential tax reform policy.

The down-stream budgetary impact from retaining ObamaCare will destroy the U.S. economy. The multinational corporations and multinational banks are positioned favorably toward this endeavor.  They have built this position over decades.

Simultaneous to these structural legislative impediments, the Administrative State apparatus is also using all possible legal avenues to remove the existential threat that President Trump represents. By all measure of appearances President Trump is now positioning his efforts to directly confront these interests.

Any decision to actually go to the mattresses is never taken lightly.

Within the direct confrontation approach everything becomes a zero sum game. Either you win, or you lose – there is no middle ground.

President Trump’s opposition, both Republicans and Democrats, have shown their intent to destroy his presidency, administration, life-long business interests, and now his family.

Therefore President Trump is now going to the mattresses.

Everything within the swamp is now the enemy, including those who would have formerly presented themselves as allies, but unfortunately have lived a life within the swamp too long and will surely become collateral damage regardless of their current disposition.

President Trump made this ‘broken arrow’ outlook intentionally clear when he publicly stated that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was now facilitating enemies of his administration. The president did not use the word “enemy”, but the implication was evident.

Lines are clear. People supportive of the administration are either part of the larger battle objective, or they are co-dependents to the system that is seeking to destroy the presidency.  There is no middle ground.  There is no longer any reasonable view that political diplomacy will work.

Yes, this approach means the congenial gloves are off; it is long overdue.  President Trump gave the UniParty, RINOs’, GOPe, Administrative State and liberal progressive every possible opportunity to meet with him, and his representatives, and genuinely do something that factually benefits the country.  The entire political system in DC, and every participant within it, not only failed to accept an outstretched hand, they belittled President Trump for reaching out to them.  Now those same entities have launched criminal probes against him and his family.

It is plainly obvious there is no need to waste any more time on trying to be conciliatory, collegiate, or even bipartisan. We’ve given the Republicans the House, Senate, and the Presidency – when they said, successively, they needed each one to turn this country around from the course it was on that would lead to self-immolation. They have failed after each action we’ve taken.”

They have intentionally failed.

When the mindset of battle reaches the conclusion the final confrontation is no longer avoidable, you surround yourself with people from your tribe; people who do not need much explanation because they are speaking the same tribal language and have done so since birth.

Mr. Anthony Scaramucci is part of that local tribe and will now be providing the details.

It would be understandable that lesser general Steve Bannon would be apprehensive of Scaramucci’s specific skillset. However, ultimately Bannon does not come from the same tribe.

Mr. Bannon’s value is still within the larger ideology. However his tribal language is, as part of the difference in background, entirely different from that known by both Trump and Scaramucci.

For a similar reason, Chief-of-Staff Reince Priebus would be uncomfortable with a zero-sum battle within Washington DC between the administration and the Administrative State.

Mr. Priebus was the always bridge between Trump the disruptor and the swamp which wished not to be disrupted. The bridge is no longer necessary; commander Trump has decided to bring up artillery and level the fortress from the outside.

President Trump was clear and public in his recent dispatch to the attorney general that Sessions would be well advised to exit his current locale, shake off contact with the current conversation, duck and get the hell out of there.

With bridges no longer needed, what value does Priebus now hold?

None.

It’s a risky strategy because we are a nation containing a multitude of tribes. Some allies, and many voters will not like the aggressive nature of the confrontation necessary to achieve victory. Even more voters will not be able to stomach the most likely gore visible in the fight; and let there be no doubt this battle is going to be filled with epic political rage.

Ms. Sanders remains visible as the more affable emissary to tender tribes who are not as comfortable with visible conflict.

This is going to be a BIG ugly.

[…] We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum, then Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.

That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer. (read more)

    It’s not a war of Left against Right. Half the “Right” is fighting with the Left to oust Trump. It’s the outsider vs the corrupt establishment. And the establishment controls the media, the large money donors, and control of Congress. Trump must re-assign AG Sessions, appoint an interim AG as a recess appointment, and have him fire Mueller ASAP. Stop the partisan lynch mob.

    It also became crystal clear how those press folks really are not smart at all. I loved how Anthony rephrased their boring and pompous questions to set the narrative. They haven’t a clue about how the real world and success operates. Anthony is going to blow doors off of them and this is going to be great.

    During the Presidential campaign, it seemed to me that the RNC leadership was doing nothing to stand up for Trump and they seemed so passive about that nonsense over Bret Baier asking for that pledge at the first debate in Cleveland or Mitt Romney’s outrageous televised announcement. Weren’t Preibus and Spicer a little slow to catch on to the Trump Train?

    My only response here is the reference to Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S Grant, and the Democrats supposedly wanting to hang on to there slaves. Apparently many in the conservative movement still believe in Marxist left-wing revisionist history about our first radical socialist president Abraham Lincoln and his illegal civil war as well as what the Confederacy actually fought for just because it makes the Republican Party look good. Lincoln is the first and greatest reason why we are having all the problems out of the federal government that Trump is working hard to try to fix and it past time that all people who claim to be conservative finally suck it up and admit this. Do you believe in the Constitution and the founding fathers or do you believe in the Republican Party? It was Lincoln who ended the constitutional republic that the founders and framers established by ending state sovereignty and transferring all power over to the federal government at the cost of 620,000 American lives, the destruction of the country, and rape and pillage of the southern states.

      I agree, but you are going to have to explain that to people in a way that they can digest, and that’s not going to be easy to do, because there is a LOT that has been messed up, and most of it has been messed up for so long that everyone thinks it has always been that way.

      You are going to have to talk about 14th Amendment citizenship (‘United States’ citizens) vs. State citizenship, how everyone is a citizen of whatever State they were born in, but we are also (thanks to the 14th Amendment) “U.S. citizens”, and the federal government much prefers to treat “us” as 14th Amendment citizens because it gives the federal government ‘jurisdiction’ over EVERYTHING we do.

      And explain how State citizens have all of the Constitutionally guaranteed rights. And explain how when the Civil War ended, slaves were freed, but they had no official ‘standing’ — they weren’t ‘citizens’ and they weren’t ‘non-citizens’, they were in no-man’s land.

      So the 14th Amendment granted ‘citizenship’ to the freed slaves, and conferred upon them ‘civil rights’, which are entirely DIFFERENT from unalienable God-given rights recognized and guaranteed by the Constitution.

      Civil rights are inherently inferior to your unalienable rights.

      …………………….
      “Where Do Civil Rights Come From?

      Most laws guaranteeing and regulating civil rights originate at the federal level, either through federal legislation, or through federal court decisions (such as those handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court). States also pass their own civil rights laws (usually very similar to those at the federal level), and even municipalities like cities and counties can enact ordinances and laws related to civil rights.”
      http://civilrights.findlaw.com/civil-rights-overview/what-are-civil-rights.html
      …………………….

      In other words, ‘civil rights’ are granted by government, and therefore ‘civil rights’ can be taken away by government.

      Exactly the OPPOSITE of our God-given unalienable Rights.

      And that’s not even the tip of the iceberg, just one facet…

      And when you start talking about these things, people who have no background in this area won’t get it, and won’t understand, and the more you try, the more they will begin to think you’re crazy, unless you can lay out your case in such a way that connecting the dots is easy.

      I would love to see that happen, I would love to see the whole country be educated on these matters, and I am always eager to learn more on these subjects myself.

    Trump blew it and he knows it. He has a 3 month window every year to get legislation passed, the rest of the time congress is BS’ing about trying to get re-elected. This year is wasted. So, is he going to reboot his administration or not? If the UniParty steamrolls him next year his administration is effectively over with respect to domestic agendas. Also, he should demand his budget or go with CR’s or sequestration for 4 years (they actually hold the govt in check). And now the republicans own ObamaCare since they refused to revamp. The cabinet officers, using OMB rule making, have to unleash a firestorm of reform on the agencies that effectively shutdown the administrative state with red tape. If possible, require 80% of new hires be vets.

      The arguments I have read on both sides are compelling. I hope Sessions is as smart as he seems and is not making a mess of this. If he has messed up I hope he is a true patriot and will do what was asked. We will know soon enough.

    Everything within the swamp is now the enemy, including those who would have formerly presented themselves as allies, but unfortunately have lived a life within the swamp too long and will surely become collateral damage regardless of their current disposition.

    President Trump made this ‘broken arrow’ outlook intentionally clear when he publicly stated that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was now facilitating enemies of his administration. The president did not use the word “enemy”, but the implication was evident.

    Okay Sundance, you’re obviously just trolling your trolls now even though they cannot see it. It’s like an April Fools Day do-over. So Trump swaps White House Communication Director and you think that means going to the mattresses? You might be right, but its a toss-up I think. But what took so damn long? Sessions fault? And Scaramucci at Comm. That’s another toss-up I think. Frankly he has slammed Trump in the past ( something Sessions never did btw ) so we’ll have to see. Either way, it remains to be seen if this helps in reality.

    Seriously though, I haven’t seen such insane gaslighting of the pro-Trump forces since the convention delegate theft plot. It is like clockwork. You can set your watch by it, every time some leak or Enemedia story attacks the Trump team ( hey I thought y’all cut the cord? ) especially Jeff Sessions, the handwringing crazies go apoplectic here. Some of them are even calling him a traitor. Yep, a bona fide Patriot is now a traitor. That is pure insanity and/or paid trolling.

    What this really is though, is adamant denial of mistakes made by the President-Elect and now President along the way by letting this Russia nonsense fester. These gaslit folks refuse to assign any blame to Trump for leaving so many of the actual enemy in place and they dutifully grab the nearest scapegoat to satisfy their appetite for easy answers. Sessions and Bannon, marked men for sure. This is shaping up just like Reagan, who had similar handwringers happily ushering his key loyalists out the door: “It will all by fine once [xxx] leaves!”. After Bannon and Sessions are are kicked under the bus there will be no-one left to blame. But in actuality no-one except Trump and his vetting team is to blame here. By accident or design, Pence, Priebus and a few GOPers have allowed this to happen. And the buck does not stop there, it stops right down the hallway in the oval office. It is time to face facts and stop looking for a convenient excuse.

    Some of the people here keep using the Godfather and his wartime consiglieri as a talking point. Others speak of ‘nice guys finishing last’. If all your knowledge comes from movies and childish clichés then it is no wonder there is confusion. Who the hell told them that the Attorney General is the President’s lawyer? Where does that come from? Robert Kennedy? Anyone even have a Constitution handy? The AG is the chief law enforcement officer for statutory law ( US Code ) passed by Congress. He does not protect the White House. He protects the United States. He is no more the President’s attorney than the SecDef is his bodyguard or the SecState is his travel agent. The AG of any State is not the Governors lawyer or protector either ( and are oft-times at loggerheads ).

    Somehow the panicked crazies actually have convinced themselves that with no recusal by Sessions then everything is all peachy keen. No independent counsel! How so? Diagram out that line of thought please. We would still have it through the deputy anyway. But more importantly, they would have an entirely new line of attack calling the Trump administration corrupt for having an AG who was part of the campaign not recusing and “obviously” quashing the “investigation” of himself! That line of attack would be in addition to all the other already existing ones. So Sessions protected his office, and the government of the United States itself by recusing. He didn’t protect himself. If anything he put himself in jeopardy. He didn’t wave a white flag, he did his job. Crazy people.

    And speaking of that, once again, shouldn’t President Trump be blamed for assigning Sessions specific tasks of cleaning gangs and stepping up illegal immigration related matters rather than becoming a partisan pitbull? Can anyone cite some precedent of an Attorney General being the President’s hatchet man? Besides Holder and Lynch, and RFK of course, there have always been pretty stark bright lines separating the White House and DoJ with respect to personal and partisan matters. And even Holder seems to have stayed plausibly apart from Dumbo ( Fast and Furious never touched him ) and Reno from Clinton ( Waco distanced from Bubba ). Folks want Sessions to be more corrupt and entangled than them? Gimme a break.

    I’ve seen this movie before and it does not end well, that is, if it isn’t a put-on charade by Trump and Sessions which I believe it is. Because if Trump is actually losing it and attacking his Attorney General, who happens to be Jeff Sessions no less, then we are in very deep trouble. Trump’s famous resume of “You’re Fired” from the apprentice is supposed to apply to the deep state and swamp. Not the frickin’ friendlies. Sessions is as top shelf as they come. He is Scalia and Thomas level patriot. The whole reason for electing a Trump is to get people like Sessions, as rare as they are, into these positions.

    Then we hear ‘if only it was Christie or Guiliani’. Oh yeah. They’ll get past the Senate. Not. Besides, they are contemptible big government gun grabbing statists of the first order. And neocons. Recall Christie in the debates as bad as Kasich and Graham for bombing Russia and Syria. If by magic one of them was AG we still have the Russia nonsense but all the new problems of anti-gunners as bad as Holder and Lynch. Not to mention their eating and drinking disorders. They would make fine special prosecutors though. Investigating Clinton and Obama. That is how you fight fire with fire. But why hasn’t Trump called up Sessions and ordered him to do it? Who you gonna blame again?

    Amazing amount of gaslighting here. I imagine the only place where there is more hate for Jeff Sessions would be at DailyKos or HuffPost. And in any Soros site too. Oh, and at the DNC of course. The clueless handwringers have become indistinguishable from the paid Soros operatives. Awesome.

      The last three lines of your comment look like classic projection. You come across as the ‘paid Soros operative’ more than anyone here.

        Oh you’re really brilliant. So defending Sessions and our Constitution somehow resembles Soros’ goals in your twisted mind? Meanwhile you regularly scapegoat Sessions and others for blunders made by the White House, greasing the skids for his, an ultimately Trump’s, exit.

        Paid Soros/Brock trolls actually do have specific goals. One is to depress voting turnout, getting people to stay home in 2018 and 2020. Another is to smear and strip Trump of his team leaving him bare naked for the deep state to finish off.

            Don’t even try to play the victim after literally just writing to me: “You come across as the ‘paid Soros operative’ more than anyone here.”.

            Anyone who thinks defending Jeff Sessions or the Constitution is something a Soros operative would do is so far from rational they’re not worth the effort. Write your brilliant comments to someone else instead of wasting my time. ‘kay, thanks.

      Blade: I have read through your comment twice, excellent points! After reading too many of these Jeff Sessions bashing comments I was really beginning to question ALOT of things. Namely, how could I have been so wrong about him and boy oh boy has he really been a good actor all this time sticking up for and fighting for the American people in a corrupt swamp only to find out now he was really just a putz all along!? I am hoping some commenters here have to eat their words and a little crow (some ALOT of crow) and soon.

  21. Blade, I liked your comment a lot — and I agree with most of it. Though I think the article and comments including yours make this a worthwhile link to share… food for thought.

    Sessions is a true patriot. Whatever comes, he is a good guy, and I hope DJT is not alienating him for real, but as part of some strategy that, with any luck, JS is in on.

      Thanks. And yes, all we can do is hope that it is a psyop cooked up by Trump, Sessions and team. For the administration to turn a dark corner, go into siege mode, lashing out at top shelf friendlies of the highest order, well, I can’t bear to think about it. It would mean the deep state has won and has the President effectively neutralized.

      This is why that Tucker show the other night was so important ( when he plead to lay off Sessions ). In the past there was no real way to get such an urgent message to the President, especially when they are in siege mode. So many things during Reagan, like amnesty, might have been averted had he heard from any of us. We know Trump watches these shows and he gets an uncensored viewpoint from the heart. Reagan was sheltered by Nancy and Howard Baker who controlled access. Trump is very smart and as long as he has access to all information, including comments from us voters who elected him to clean out the deep state and promote patriots like Sessions, then all will be okay.

      My overall point is to ignore the sycophants ( some are trolls ) who are cheerleading anyone and everyone right out the door ( while they refuse to consider that Trump might be making some errors along the way ). Because after a while at some point there is no-one left except a bare naked President with no friends. Again, that is exactly how the deep state will win ( not through leaks or impeachment which is just for organizing their troops and maintaining morale ). They are running the exact same playbook they used to neutralize Reagan.

        Blade,
        I always appreciate your insight.

        For those who have to be led by the nose:

        Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals
        “expanded version of the 2000 Third Quarter issue of Public Relations Strategies, a quarterly publication of Miyamoto Strategic Counsel”

        RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

        THIS is why Jeff Sessions HAD to recuse.

        RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

        This is what we see playing out here at TCTH.
        The left has decided to target AG Sessions. Notice all the other stuff (Civil Asset Forfieture, legalize maryjane, drugs) that is now being used against AG Sessions.

        Which brings us to:
        “RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
        AND
        “RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)”

        >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

        President Trump is of course well aware of these leftist tactics and is quite willing to use them against the Progressives.
