Dan Bongino Interviews President Trump…

Earlier today President Trump called-in for an interview on current political events with Dan Bongino.  The interview begins at 03:45 of video:

The interview covers current COVID-19 mitigation efforts as well as the financial packages used to help offset the economic damage. On the state-bailouts President Trump hints he would not veto a phase-4 package that includes state bailouts; but he would seek to extract significant concessions. That very early position might change because any state bailout would be toxic for reelection.

During the last part of the interview [@28:12] President Trump discusses the Michael Flynn case and the recent developments.

      One of my childhood best friends is on Trumps SS team. And he’s one of us. So I know that him and several of the guys on Trumps team are legit, likeminded guys, and they think like us. My buddy was actually on the front of the NYT website in an article about Trump several months back. We made fun of him because it looks like Trump is glaring at him in the picture. And he’s alway been a ladies man, so we bust his chops and said look at Trump looking at you thinking, man, that is a beautiful man, he should be running the country. Ha ha.

      But Trust me, I know FOR CERTAIN of three guys on Trumps detail that are legit awesome guys, on our team. And they’ve told me the other guys think just like them.

        Last year hubby and I went to NYC for the 1st time. We stumbled upon the back side of Trump Tower and became concerned about all the barricades thinking we had inadvertently walked into a bad place. A young police officer who turned out to be a secret service officer chatted with us. As luck would have it we saw him the next day inside when we visited TT. He too is one of us, very nice young man and a patriot.

          I’ve told this story on here before, but I’ll share it again. During the 2008 election they were put on McCain and Obama’s detail. They rotated. They were all young. It was the start of their 3rd or 4th year with the SS. We were at a bbq and I was asking them about the candidates. And they were telling me how McCain was an absolute POS. Treated them all like scum. And they all absolutely LOVED Obama. I was like guys, come on, you can’t be serious. And they were like he just hangs with us and really relates with us. I remember telling them if what they were telling me was true, I said it was all an act. They disagreed. I told them I can read people, and that guy is full of SH–.

          Fast forward to a year later, and we were at my buddies house warming. Obama was now president. So I asked what are their thoughts on Obama now. And they said he made McCain look like Mother Theresa. They said once he got elected he treated them like servants. Would yell at them and talk down to them like they had no right to be in his presence. I asked if they would take a bullet for him. And I got a look from one of them, I’ll NEVER forget it, he was looking down at his beer and didn’t raise his head, just his eyes and looked at me, and huffed. MESSAGE received. They hated every day working for him all 8 years.

          We all have young families and careers so we mainly text/email to keep in contact. But I will be sure to pass it along when I see him this summer, if this BS doesn’t keep us from getting together. I actually haven’t spoken to him since that NYT article and I don’t know what protocols are affecting their day to day life. I don’t like to bug him when things seem hectic.

          OHHH, this post exchange just reminded me of another fact that I’ve always took solace in to confirm that the BS the left always spews about the dangerous right wing threats to society.

          So, I text him right when Trump won in 2016 and asked how things were going. And he told me that he’s never been this stressed in all his time with SS. Said the threats Trump gets are on another level then any of the other politicians he’s been assigned to. W and O were nothing compared to what Trump is facing. Just another interesting fact that shows the left is much more violent and dangerous than the right. Not that any of us needed confirmation, but this was factual evidence that just reinforced my beliefs.

    Amazing gall of this creep and the swamp in general.

    Chris Wallace also is surprised why people are running to Gen. Flynn’s defense after all he lied to the FBI. My guess Chris was on the Lolita Express with Jeffery Epstein they have completely blackmailed. “Toe the line or we’ll let the world know who you really are.”

    “Any State bailout would be toxic to reelection”
    Really?,…

    This is the DACA offer manuever, all over again.
    “Sure, lets talk about State and municipal bailouts, as part of a,”Deal”.

    Sanctuary city/State policies, have cost those cities and States millions or Billions, for education costs, healthcare costs, welfare food stamp unemployment costs,…..
    AND they have cost the Federal government, as well.

    First thing I am looking for, in any ‘bailout’ package, is an end to sanctuary policies.
    Without that, I do not see how I could possibly agree to send good $ after bad.

    Secondly, their is Pension reform; you are in this financial hole, NOT cause of the virus, but because of these bad policies, again not sending good $ after bad.

    Let Dem govenors/mayors try to argue that they walked away from a deal, where PDJT was willing to give them more than they were asking for, because they refused to give up their sanctuary policies, or confront public sector unions.

    Sounds like a winner, to me!

        I got ANOTHER one for you,…I THINK. PDJT and Pelosi met, to talk about an Infrastructure plan.
        Nancy had her trap all set for him (she thought).
        First, she proposed a Trillion dollars, thinking he might balk.

        He said, “No, not enough. Lets make it TWO Trillion.”

        “Be,still my heart!” She thought.
        Then, she said “O.k., why don’t YOU come up with a plan for how we’ll pay for it, and we’ll meet,again in two weeks,…..?”

        She was amased when he said
        “O.K., that sounds great!”

        She,went outside for her press conference, repeating the key elements, and went home.

        See, her D.C. way of thinking is, in order to PAY for something, you either need “offsets”; that is reduce spending in other areas, or you need to increase revenue; i.e. “NEW” taxes.

        WHA ,could PDJT POSSIBLY propose, to cover 2 TRILLION $, over ten years, in order to “PAY” for this massive infrastructure bill?

        Certainly wasn’t going to cut military spending,…or domestic programs,….and he’s a tax CUTTER, like all those supply sider Repubs,…so how,……

        And then she realised the trap;
        When she went back, in two weeks, he,was going to point out how the tariffs he was leveling on China, and would be leveling on the EU, would easily total MORE than 2 Trillion over ten years, so we could have a MASSIVE infrastructure program, without it costing American taxpayers a dime!

        That meeting was months,and months ago, if you don’t remember, you can google it.

        There,WAS no second meeting, two weeks later; Nancy was a “No-show”, cause she refused to give him the victory.

        At least, I THINK thats what happened, as I say you can research it.
        They had the first meeting.
        They agreed on 2 Trillion over 10 years, with PDJT increasing from Nancy’s 1 Trillion suggestion.
        They agree PDJT would propose how to pay.
        And, they agreed to meet in two weeks,…and as far,as I know never did.

        That much is, I believe, in the record.
        Its my speculation that PDJT was going to propose paying for it with tariffs, but you decide.

      1. No more sanctuary cities. Period.
      2. Pension reform. Pensions should be structured like the federal (FERS) system (one part SS, one part defined contribution, and one part defined benefit which is 1% per year of service times highest base salary with NO consideration for overtime).
      3. States have to amend their constitutions to permit public sector pensions to be diminished (Illinois and Ohio constitutions prohibit this).

That’s why Bernie is keeping his votes … to give to the candidate who rides in on a white horse at the last minute.

    This has the markings of a Hillary operation, but it is hard to believe even She thinks she can pull it off at this point (though I would not put it past her to plot a path to assume her rightful throne).

    How do I know I’m right? Because the far left and pretend conservatives have repeatedly and consistently allowed Biden to get in front of the cameras and make a complete and total fool of himself …time and time again.

    Sheesh this is sooooo obvious.

        I’m not sure anyone other than Bernie himself will satisfy his followers. Some of them will vote the Dem ticket, but many, maybe most, will not. They need someone who will bring back Trump voters and to them that will be a minority. They believe that Barry Obama was the most beloved president in modern history and that Michelle is admired beyond belief. Don’t be surprised if they get her to take the nomination. Valerie Jarrett would be there to give the orders to them that she receives from the globalist masters that she served orders from to Barry, too. Barry would carry a bunch of he weight. She’d be a figurehead. But they would believe that virtually every black voter that supports Trump would turn to her because she’s black and they can’t understand that thinking people don’t consider race. She may very likely be being groomed in the backroom right now. I didn’t used to think she’d run, but she and Barry report to the same globalists that other top Dems and establishment Republicans (i.e.; Romney, McCain) have reported to. If they want her to run she will.

    PDJT Justice Interview Reply– You are going to see what a good job Barr is doing. I let him (Barr) do it…I don’t get involved. I say Bill you to do what is right. I can get Involved. In theory I’m the Chief Justice Law Enforcement Officer. I can. I think it is better that I don’t. And…so far. I think that. I can…legally, I can get involved. Legally I can head it up. But I ‘m…wait till you see what is happening. Again, I let the Professionals handle it.

    PDJT knew his powers on Nov. 8, 2016.

    Barr works for the PDJT.

    PDJT is 100% responsible for Documents and Justice.

    PDJT knows Barr is allowing Obstruction for Justice for Documents Requests.

    PDJT must know (direct knowledge) holding back documents for prosecutorial reasons, timing and entrapments etc.

    The President has taken and Arms-Length approach for “Political Reasons” between the President and the FBI/DOJ for about 3-years.

    PDJT will have to implement his sworn duty of Justice if Barr doesn’t do his sworn duty; which will be revealed very soon.

    PDJT many historical hints; disclosed that he will get involved if necessary.

    If Barr fails; PDJT has a duty to the Constitution and the American People to eliminate his Arms-Length approach for “Political Reasons.” Why! We are at war and fighting for our survival.

    If Barr fails; PDJT will have a Duty at that moment to implement many other Paths to Justice.

        President Trump can ask Barr any questions as long as he doesn’t instruct Barr to distort the facts and proceed to prosecute when there is no evidence.

        In short; P/T can ask Barr anything that is in compliance with law.

          1. FBI & JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CONTROLLED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP (Summary)
          2. The Department of Justice and the FBI are Entities that serve at the Pleasure of the President.
          3. The President has the authority to directly (Micro) Manage the FBI and the Attorney General about Crimes and Investigations, what-ever the Oval Office “Wants”. If Congress doesn’t like this, they would have to change the law (Constitution).
          4. The DOJ and the FBI are part of the Executive Branch in which America Voters appointed the President to oversee “ALL” of the DOJ and FBI.
          5. If PDJT believes the Constitution is at risk as a result of corruption and there is a paper/digital trail of evidence that PDJT sees and the American People sees; PDJT has a sworn duty to make sure the DOJ/FBI are doing their sworn duty and prosecute those criminal acts if the standard of evidence is within normal prosecutorial

              I understand what you are saying which is taken into consideration. The Constitution and the United States (people) has this one time opportunity, for easy prosecutions with the written criminal codes that matches the evidence of criminal acts, to implement Justice. Rule of Law (Justice) is the shield that protects the Constitution and our way of life. Justice will educate and capture millions of new voters who were not informed.

              Studying PDJT during his building of his strategic 500 entity Empire, he was brilliant/brave and took risks at the right opportunity moments. I believe the next 2-months PDJT will show clearly the path he will take to obtain Justice.

              Again, when the country is at risk you make the move, just like the risks that were taken during the Revolutionary war.

              The people demanding Justice is very powerful.

              And yes, PDJT is lights years ahead of everyone in knowledge/planning. The past 38 years, I have always enjoyed watching and thinking through his next chess moves.

              Since Nov 2016, I knew Justice would come and never doubted it for one-second during all these battles of this Legal Civil War.

As he argued, “It is one of the happy incidents of the federal system that a single courageous State may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.”

    As G. Alan Tarr has noted, although Brandeis’s formula seems to side with the liberty of individuals to act using their various unequal talents and skills, “over the longer term, the tendency would be toward policy uniformity, as states emulated the successful policies of sister states.”

    “Wait till you see what he is going to do!”
    Also, President is anxious to borrow at near 0.00% so as to restructure long-term debt.
    How do you go broke with long term debt near 0.00%, with a growing industrial base, increased GDP, reduced taxation, repatriation of American business and assets, and most importantly, with a massive re-ignition of the free enterprise system to drain away the lame morbidity of socialist timidity and cowardice in the face of the challenge of life? Also, how do you go broke when everybody else is broke?
    Conservatives who are growing queasy about bail-outs galore have no idea how this president is going to set our economy on fire, and the importance of 0.00% money, superb, pro-growth trade deals, powerful dollar, and the massively important fact that EVERYBODY ELSE IS BROKE.

        One other thought: in the past, when our currency was towering over the others, we gained no benefit from it other than to import cheap goods because our goods were too expensive to sell abroad. This lead us also to outsource our industry, and suddenly, our economy became one that was consumption-based with little industrial output. So this was the grave danger Trump foresaw (and apparently only him!). Therefore, with all our accumulated debt and little productive capacity of our own, we were sitting ducks for all kinds extortionist malevolence on the part of our enemies. That problem is fast disappearing, and they is no country sufficiently stable enough to make us pay a price for our stupid socialist politics. Not yet.
