    Look at this…interesting if true!


    • Sandra-VA says:

      This is so bogus.

      Michael Cohen is Trump’s personal lawyer and also the lawyer for Trump’s businesses. He is completely loyal to the President.

      So fed up with all this ridiculous speculation and assigning of motives based on nothing but what someone is dreaming up to make them feel better about bad news.

    How deep was the planning?

    1. Juicy Tidbit

    Attorney Daniel Horowitz on the Savage Nation radio program said that before Obama left office, the Democrats / Obama had the rules of succession for AG changed so that an attorney position from DC would be #4 in line to the AG!

    About Feb 2017 President Trump changed this.

    Doesn’t this shiw how far in advance they were gaming this out?

    2. Trump is having dinner tonight with Alan Dershowitz, according to UKs The Mail.

    Dershowitz is now claiming yesterday’s raids were unconstitutional.

      PC Thank you for solid intel and a great follow up question. Thats what I used to love about this place. Now I find myself retreating to 8 chan to escape the hand wringing Debbie Downers who treat this Refuge as a therapy hang out. The chans don’t put up with that nonsense. They want sourced intel and thoughtful analysis that furthers MAGA. And yes, that move does indicate the complex moves made against Trump AND his ability to spot them and make counter moves. People who clutch pearls believing he’s a hapless boob are needlessly making themselves sick with anxiety which is just what the demonic forces wants to happen to us all. Fortunately, it’s NOT going to work.


      • Alison says:

        I’m with you! I’ve always thought of “The Last Refuge” as the place I can come for support & encouragement for our cause. Too many see it differently as the place to whine, wring hands & talk about how discouraged they are. Too each his own, I guess. But I refuse to coddle those whose weak knees don’t pass muster in this war we are fighting.


    • Blade says:

      Doesn’t this show how far in advance they were gaming this out?

      Not really. They weren’t executing a grand plan or gaming anything. The “far in advance” just goes back to election day, then the sh!t hit the fan. 10 weeks transition was the duration of the deep plan. Russian sanctions, executive orders for the dissemination of raw intel, DoJ succession, it was all haphazard and rushed, not planned.

      Our side made big mistakes. The “landing teams” did not pick up on the actions of the outgoing administration ( or if they did and communicated to Team Trump then it is still a big secret ). Pence, in charge of the transition picked or approved some real humdingers, not to mention screwing up Flynn because of a single media interview question ( still very fishy to me ). And as Bull Durham correctly stated, Trump himself should have demanded a house cleaning right up front and taken whatever hit it meant, including the entire FBI leadership at once.

      Dershowitz and Turley are good people for advice ( but not appointments, they can be very fickle ) so let’s hope that Dershowitz calms the President down and keeps him from stepping in the big bear trap of firing Mueller. What I think is going to happen is that Sessions will soon make a move because the investigation is close to harming the US Government itself ( not just the President, that ain’t his job ) and IMHO he will likely unrecuse and take down either Rosenstein or Mueller or both, through either the big ugly process or outright termination. It just feels right but I have no evidence to support this.

        Blade it’s amusing to me that you seem to believe, with absolute certitude, that Trump had no plan. Then you write as if you know the plan they developed which allows you to critique its efficacy. Perhaps you should rethink your underlying assumptions. Relisten to the video Sundance posted today where Trump briefly spelled out a surface skaters view of what we face. Then read the Art of War, Trumps favorite book. Perhaps then you’ll be able to offer more insightful analysis. Honestly you are SERIOUSLY underestimating Trump and his level of preparedness for this task.

          We all have strengths and weaknesses. Even President Trump. … his high staff turnover rate doesn’t help.

          Cozy, reading is fundamental. I said the enemy had no plan. Not Trump.

    Excerpt from article linked to below: President Donald Trump is considering firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, multiple people familiar with the discussions tell CNN, a move that has gained urgency following the raid of the office of the President’s personal lawyer.

    Such an action could potentially further Trump’s goal of trying to put greater limits on special counsel Robert Mueller.

    This is one of several options — including going so far as to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions — Trump is weighing in the aftermath of the FBI’s decision Monday to raid the office of Michael Cohen, the President’s personal lawyer and longtime confidant. Officials say if Trump acts, Rosenstein is his most likely target, but it’s unclear whether even such a dramatic firing like this would be enough to satisfy the President.

      If he does any of that, he will be playing right into the desperate hands of the dims/DS/Globos.

      Trump must wait for his renewed mandate this fall.

      THEN, after the GOP retains the House, gets a 60+ vote super-majority in the Senate, and the GOP gov. candidate wins in CA…giving Trump and undeniable voter mandate…he can fire whomever he wants.


      • dallasdan says:

        I agree. He can’t fire Mueller, Sessions, or Rosenstein without a crapstorm of criticism from all, yes, all, sides.

        The resistance has effectively muzzled the MAGA legislative agenda (except Tax Reform, but it was close) by delaying confirmation of appointees, deferring serious construction of the wall, and putting immigration reform on-hold. At the same time, they have successfully harassed the President with a series of bogus accusations, abused his family, and attacked his confidants/associates. The raid on his lawyer was just the “next thing” on a very long list, and leaks about what was found, all designed and intended to injure the President, will dribble out for weeks.

        I continue to believe that Mueller will fabricate a charge against the President in order to both blunt the impact of the IG report and feed the Dem fervor to win the House, and if that happens, the President can expect the worst.

        The IG report remains a great hope, but provides no guarantee of justice being served by the DOJ, which has under-performed in the national political arena since Day 1.

        The voting mandate we hope for is most likely going to be fueled by the economic progress that has positively touched the lives of millions, but only if they vote.


    • Michelle says:

      This is not news. Everybody is considering this, not just Trump (if he is at all). Thoughts going through your head are not news.

    Here is the answer to all these questions. After watching the first year of President Trump being messed with, I found the answer to these problems right here on CTH.

    Forgot how important our history is. Thank you Sundance! I do feel better now. Thank you so much!!


    “If the GOPe was willing to: A) publish racist material to destroy conservative Chris McDaniel; and B) actually pay Democrats to vote in the Mississippi GOP primary to insure his defeat (Thad Cochran’s victory); well, just imagine what those same people will do to keep control of the White House agenda.”

    This is simply how they roll.

    We can only defeat them if we refuse to follow their agenda. This approach also applies to Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and/or Scott Walker supporters too. Do not go rogue just because the RNC/GOPe is ridiculing, marginalizing or isolating you.

    Fix bayonets and see through their scheme. Then eat popcorn and watch their continuous meltdown…. it will get worse. Oh boy, it will get much, much worse.

    Support your candidate regardless of how much they are attacked.

    In my humble opinion, knowing what will be afore the next person in the White House – and knowing the GOPe will need to have their fingers pried from their seats at the trough, only Donald Trump has the specific skill set -in this specific moment- to defeat: Tom Donohue, Wall Street, The Chamber of Commerce, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner.

    And here finally is a roadmap to defeat the Swamp:

    However, in addition to the things Trump is doing (exposing their money constructs and their actual unwillingness to address immigration reform), and beyond supporting Trump as he exposes them, there are things WE MUST ALSO DO in order to defeat their plan.

    The GOPe will want to push Trump supporters out of the official Republican party. This is by design. This is why you are seeing such vitriolic statements being made about registered Republican primary voters by the leadership inside the GOPe that need to control the registered Republican primary voters.

    Don’t fall for their manipulations.

    Many states have “closed primaries”, meaning only Registered Republicans can vote in the Republican primary. If you live in one of these states, and you leave the Republican party, you are playing into their hands. Don’t fall for it.

    CLOSED PRIMARY STATES INCLUDE: Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Washington DC, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington State, Wyoming.

    It’s cued up to start and you can fast forward through our local commercials. Kate owns her own radio show, so she’s very “truth” and fact oriented.

    Ohhh the biggest news of the day.? Zucker before Congress, Cohen was raided, Roll Tide team, Bossert forced to resign, etc… While this was going on.

    Emir of Qatar just totally capitulated to President Trump. ~
    The President stressed the importance of resolving Qatar’s ongoing dispute with its neighbors, restoring unity in the region with partners of the United States, enabling those countries to promote regional stability and counter the threat of Iran together. President Trump acknowledged the progress displayed by Qatar through the implementation of the United States-Qatar bilateral memorandum of understanding on counterterrorism cooperation, and stressed the importance of taking additional steps to ensure that the commitments made at the Riyadh Summit in Saudi Arabia to cut off funding for terrorists, discredit extremist ideology, and defeat terrorist groups come to fruition.


    There will be no war acts by President Trump’s Admin towards Syria. Just read where his Sec of Defense and other cabinet members are headed and whom they’re meeting with.
    But, ohh no’ses…

    Tucker had another good segment tonight on Syria with Greenwald. The overwhelmingly unanimous Enemedia cheering for Syria ( including Fox ) versus how it was in 2002-2003 is stunning as the (D)ummies were anti-war. But just go back to Clinton with the Afghanistan aspirin factory wag the dog strike and the (R)ats were the critics. Hannity segment with two idiot warmongers just confirms all of this.

    This is going to define the Trump Administration if he gets fooled by these ridiculous clowns, who if you listen carefully when they are asked for any details about proof, either accuse of Russian sympathies or mumble some meaningless factoid that means nothing to the question asked. Lord knows we have been here before, although with just a few newspapers back then. 120 years ago it was Pulitzer and Hearst, now it is Bezos, Slim and Murdoch.

    The 800 pound gorilla that no-one is seeing is how these runaway events are blocking any connection between USA and Russia, especially Trump and Putin, Why is that? That is the real question IMHO. There must really be something that the globalists and deep state perps want to stay hidden. My guess is that there is a huge pile of information on our corrupt politicians and media waiting to be handed over personally to the President and they are fighting for their lives here. Remember, the only real KGB archives we have seen are from leaks. I suspect Putin has access to the real deal and I hope he makes them available to our Prez and AG. So, assuming that is true, smearing Russia with every breath makes perfect sense as the perps here are trying to spoil any revelations that might be upcoming.

      It was not so long ago … that Putin released videos of lines of oil tankers at US controlled territories that were headed to Turkey and Israel to offload. And Obama said “We didn’t want to bomb them and cause environmental damage.”

      Short of the story…

      I am confident that the man I supported from the summer of 2015 and on , and whom I voted for, is not so foolish to fall for this load of nonsense about Syria and launch a military action. I am confident that his barking parrot in the UN, Ms. Haley, is just spouting off words written for her for some bigger motive. I hope my confidence is well founded.

      If war is what you are all worried about, then, while I cannot predict the future, perhaps it would be best to not worry — there doesn’t appear to be one coming down the pike.
      Unless of course some leaders not named President Trump decide to truly be stupid (our president isn’t the one who should be accused of foolishness though).
      If it is concern that justice be done to some bad actors within our own country, then it’s best to adopt a patient stance — these are powerful people with connections, it was never going to be easy or quick…one should take heart that their political clout appears to have been a bit diminished lately; that’s a cause for joy I should think.

      If it’s upset because a personal favorite is perhaps getting some of the shine knocked off of them, that I can’t help you with.

      – “With respect to Karl #Marx, I think he must be turning in his grave to see what has become of his country… in its defense of the use of chemical weapons against the innocent.”

      If #Russia wants a criminal investigation we can refer to ICC.”
