For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. ~ Jeremiah 29:11

During the Obama years, We the (63 million) People stood by as the Republican side of the House did absolutely nothing in preventing #44 and his minions going about their damaging and premeditated policies to take America down at the knees. Like millions of others, yours truly couldn’t understand just why Republicans kept caving to the leftist plot.

It would have been so easy to stand up to #44 and explain to the nation why he was such a liar, a charlatan, and so dangerous. But it never happened, and they always caved, with nary a good explanation as to why.

Except for one. There is one explanation that makes sense of everything, including the monstrosity of the perpetual, outrageous, evil, nation-destroying attacks against duly-elected president Trump and all of his We the (63 million) supporters.

Daniel Greenfield: Lee Smith and The Plot Against the President
The Five W’s are the essential infrastructure of good journalism. It’s important to be able to tell a good story. But if the story doesn’t contain answers to who, what, where, when, and why, it’s meaningless.

Fortunately, Lee Smith’s The Plot Against the President digs into the origin of the coup against President Trump in the old-fashioned Five W’s sense. While the book still leaves plenty of questions buried in reams of classified documents, it’s an excellent resource for organizing and making sense of the mess.

Rarely has a government investigation been clouded in this much secrecy or required so many investigations of the investigation. The points of the spiderweb between private contractors, the media, and government figures still vanish into darkness. But Smith follows the work of Rep. Devin Nunes and his team (the subtitle for the tome is The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History) and that comes with its own infrastructure of the Five W’s. [Daniel Greenfield]


Washington DC is a corrupt, political damnation of a place, having been thus for years. Just about everyone in the swamp is corrupt and ‘in’ on the plot in one fashion or another. The dictum to follow in exploring the DC underworld runs ‘follow the money’ – and there’s a ton of it to follow – the end result being you will find criminal activity under every rock and crevice.

One needn’t of course, identify the ‘Democrats’ other than what they really are, because every single one of those blowhards is tightly in on the plot, totally compromised and brought to heel under the monstrous ‘intelligence community’, in the form of the usual suspects, of whom Brennan, Comey, Clapper etc., are a mere step on the way to the top of the pyramid; where rests the real caveat-emptor. After all ‘caveat emptor’ still applies when you are buying the plot.

In tight collusion with those Democrats, there’s a crooked branch of Republicans standing in the way to divert President Trump from fully draining the swamp, knowing full well they will be exposed too when the Dems are eventually rounded up, indicted and prosecuted. Without naming names, it shouldn’t be too difficult for readers to figure out who some of those RINOs are.


The ‘why’ isn’t hard to grasp, but the ‘when’ remains elusive. Lee Smith makes a good case for the smear campaign associated with the Steele Dossier predating the former British operative whose continental credentials and FBI connections were used to sell a political assault ordered by the Clinton campaign.

Smith describes a series of ‘protodossiers’ which were used to eventually shape the Steele Dossier, works in progress, bits of opposition research focusing on Trump’s international business connections, put together and fed to the media in a conventional fashion. From the very beginning, these work products were not merely opposition research intended for the public.

Their real audience can be assessed from the linkages to Nellie Ohr, the wife of senior Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, and a friend of Steele’s, who would act as a conduit for the Steele dossier, and the warnings that Trump was a national security threat. Accusing Trump of Russian ties was a justification for an unlimited investigation of Trump and his associates using methods and degrees of secrecy that would otherwise be off limits against Americans.[Daniel Greenfield]


The president is having to navigate the swamp plot so as to separate the big criminals from the not-so-big criminals, while figuring out how to work around those compromised, slow-walking Republicans. One has to believe he’s applying all kinds of different pressures behind the scenes, with every move being strategic.

#44 was (still is) protected by his skin tone, albeit half white. Forever slyly hiding in the background and popping up every once in awhile, he constantly yells cries of racism, which no doubt will continue; the good news being that flack from any investigation against members of his administration inevitably make their way into the plot from the Durham and Barr inquiries. Still, it’s hard to believe if anything will actually stick to #44 no matter how obvious a case is made against him.

And even those on our side seemingly don’t grasp that this is total war with hell unleashed if we lose; of which too many seem to have their heads buried in the sand and/or dirt of the swamp.


The Steele dossier, sloppy and incompetent as it might have been, was the final product. A piece of work that could be used to bring the full weight of FISA warrants, informants, and unmaskings down on the political opposition, even while the media manufactured a parallel reality.

Lee Smith also traces how the protodossiers evolved into Russiagate. As he notes, “a key difference between the protodossiers and Steele’s seventeen memos is that the former discuss Trump’s supposed connections to Russian and Eastern Bloc figures alleged to have ties to organized crime and also possibly to Russian state interests.”

The usefulness of a narrative that moved past organized crime figures to the Kremlin lay not in its public appeal, where allegations of organized crime might have been more damaging, but its surveillance uses. The Steele dossier had emerged as the product of a political campaign, but had never been intended for public use. Instead it was a piece of opposition research that had been aimed directly at the FBI. [Daniel Greenfield]


If this plot is ever fully exposed it would be the first bureaucratic coup d’etat in U.S history, and from henceforth the entire #44 Biden/Rob’Em presidency and administration will be recorded as the most corrupt in U.S history. We may not be feeling it, but America is living through the most perilous time of its existence since the civil war.

If (and when) he succeeds, soldier-warrior president Trump will go down as one of the greatest leaders in history, having played a major part in the humbling of the ‘managerial elite,’ as someone recently called it. And hopefully, in the form of Boris Johnson, something similar is taking root in Britain. Thus is the impact of the ‘Trump Effect.’

One thing for sure – Bringing down the deep state will no doubt, involve its share of Biblical intervention and proportionality – it’s overall effect being to change the very nature of humanity as we know it. And all for the common good.

Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. ~ Jeremiah 29: 12-13
