Vice President Mike Pence Discusses Anonymous Op-ed…

After reviewing a weird CNN report on the backstory of the anonymous op-ed, it becomes more clear the entire construct of the New York Times publication was a manufactured political operation between like-minded allies in DC politics and media.

An anonymous person worked with another anonymous person, who acted as an anonymous go-between, between the second anonymous person and the media. In essence, there is no originating official; it’s all made up.

    • What are the odds that Trump wrote it himself and released it? Seriously to change the narrative to one which he PERSONALLY KNOWS is entirely false… because he is the one behind it… great way to throw everyone into turmoil and have people chasing their tails with every single rumor regarding his fitness which has been concocted in the last 24 months… FRESH in EVERYONE’S MIND that everyone states that it is ENTIRELY FALSE, BEFORE THE DEMOCRATS can try to use it to their advantage…

        After seeing President Trump play Trudeau by leaking “off the record” such provocation that they would never accede to the bilateral NAFTA replacement, I wonder whether President Trump is the author of the op-ed.
        He is, if he did it, getting the Dems to admit the existence of the poo-pooed Deep State, and setting up a straw man to demonise. That would use Alinsky tactics against Dems, the next step after massive demonisation would be to identify Dems with the strawman.
        Farfetched? What is the ultimate endgame? Suggestions?

        I’m kind of with you on that one. Everyone is assuming that it was a real article, written by a real person, with the intent to damage the President or bolster the new book. That simply doesn’t track for me.

        For one, the very real accomplishments are listed. For another, it concedes that there are indeed people within our government who are actively trying to disrupt the functioning of our government for their own reasons (and in extremely juvenile ways….swiping a paper so he wouldn’t sign it? Really? So, what, the author of the paper never follows through and asks about it, and no one ever realizes that it happened?) I don’t expect a lot of non critical thinkers to tumble to the fact that it’s a ruse, but the only people I expect it to actually appeal to are those that are far left and believe that sedition is okay to begin with because of “greater good” or whatever.

        What I do see happening is independents and moderates hearing this in passing, and being quite annoyed that some midshelf, unelected, self important nobody has decided what the President should and shouldn’t see. That is banana republic all day long. And independents and moderates of intelligence can see for themselves that the policy the President is enacting (or repealing) is beneficial not dangerous. I see it as a win for the President.

        What I speculate is that this was a very calculated move, by someone who understands the human psyche very well and they are slipping some small doses of reality into the crazy bedlam of narrative. When you have been in a bubble for a while, small doses are all that can be tolerated at a time. I am reminded of some of the brilliant generals of the past who, with brass ba**s and nerves of steel, pulled off bluffs and missions that no one thought they could and left the enemy dazed, confused, and saying “what happened”?

        Yes, like Caesar defeating Pompeius, though outmatched.
        In the acclaimed series “Rome” the scriptwriter has Caesar say, when told they were vastly outnumbered: “Therein lies our advantage.” He meant that adversity produces heroes, rather than sloth.
        President Trump, being surrounded by Dems and Rinos, and the MSM is highly motivated.
        The remaining question would be: apart ftom it being a cry of “rally to me!”, does this seeming fiasco enable him? Pass legislation? New libel laws? New confidentiality laws?

          If what you say is possible . . . the ONLY possible author I see is the CIA via Brennan.
          Afterall, doesn’t the CIA “own” the media, more so than the FBI/DoJ which with all of them in the hotseat right now, couldn’t risk being outed … but Brennan, he’s free and clear to still use his tightly woven media for another CIA Operation Mockingbird Alinsky style shenanigan.
          Or…. because the author is anonymous, it is possible to be one of the Alinsky-type NYT employees, who fabricated knowledge of an “anonymous author”, filtering the letter through himself as a NYT employee – especially if the NYT is so desperate to claw-on to any story derogatory to this Presidency, the Alinsky-type NYT employee knows darn well they’ll jump all over it.
          Or… because this could be considered a troll of epic proportions – it is possible this could be a 4/8-Chan well played troll. The letter is a fun-house opposite mirror image of what Qanon posts for readers, telling of White hats with the President, taking care of the evil-doers, protecting Trump (the good), trust the plan, they’ve got our backs, taking-out the deep state, etc etc. This letter is right in line with Qanon, except it tells of how it’s working AGAINST the President (perceived to be evil instead of good), we should trust his plan, he’s got this, gonna take-out the President in the WH.
          Or…. The New York Times are a bunch of dumbasses, and one of those antifafaggot-black-mask-panty-wearing-pansies mailed it in, and the Times went with it because of their Trump derangement syndrome.
          Many choices {wink}

    Well, far be it from me to be the only one not to voice my opinion on the perpetrator: it is either the NYT writing/editorial staff itself…or McDead and/or those connected to him – before or after his death.

    It and the timing fit perfectly with the previewed release of McDead’s “documentary” about the awful Trump Administration.

    In their mind, they have set up the perfect trifecta: Woodward’s book, the NYT Op-ed, and McDead’s film. AND…all timed around the Kavanaugh hearing.

    I will reiterate the words of the Roman Emperor Trajan to his governor Pliny, who had asked him what to do about anonymous denunciations of Christians.

    Trajan famously replied that Christians were not to be sought out, and anonymous denunciations were to be ignored. Anonymous denunciations were never to be used, especially in criminal prosecutions, “for they are unworthy of our civilization and our age.”

    For Leftists, anonymous denunciations are apparently quite fine, and – as we have seen from the more radical Leftists – denouncing Christianity and even persecuting it is quite a worthy activity today!

    ___

    Project Veritas probably has people at NYT and Google and Twitter who can expose how NYT planted the word “lodestar” in the op-ed because it’s a word VP Pence uses, and then probably conspired with Google to create an algorithm that sends all searches of the word to Pence, to sow discord. Thus we see “lodestar” connected to “Pence” trending on Twitter.

    Apologize if this has been shared before now. I am late hopping on and trying to digest all that I can and wanted to share this article. How reliable is True Pundit’s reporting? I always suspected that VP Pence was not totally on board with our president, that he was possibly part of the Republican Elite. Wasn’t it Reince Priebus who recommended him? Whenever he is with our president, he always looks like he just tasted something nasty. He has that fake smile on his face.

      [sorry for being a bore] – There is nothing that would help the Democrats more than moving Pence out of VPOTUS slot before they get to work on Trump himself. Without Pence, the line of succession will go to Ryan or better yet to the Democratic Speaker of the House if they produce one. So when the NYT publishes something calculated to create friction between POTUS and VPOTUS, and also likely to make the Republican base turn on Pence and make his life harder than it is, then the base ought to step back and not be led by bait set for them by the NYT. It is not always helpful to Trump to denounce everybody around him as not worthy of being in his presence. This is one of those times. Love Pence. Kiss Pence. Assume Pence is under pressure you can not see and do not add to it.

    Obama is no exception to this, hence the teleprompters.
