The (((power elites))) really don’t have much interest in VP Mike Pence becoming the nation’s father figure should they succeed in removing President Donald Trump from office.
They need a person completely without principle who can lead the nation to open borders, globalism, multiculturalism, and diversity.
In short, they need another Barack Obama.
But Paul Ryan will do. To get Ryan into the Oval Office, Pence must resign or be impeached. The faint beginnings of the next step in the coup are beginning to be seen.
Excerpt from National Review
Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen did some preliminary construction work on what will become the new party line if it appears Pence is likely to replace Trump in office. In his absurd May 15 take — “Trump doesn’t embody what’s wrong with Washington. Pence does.” — Cohen blasts Pence for being a “bobblehead” who nods too much when standing near Trump at press conferences, for publicly stating things that Trump told him, and for having failed to quit being Trump’s running mate while Trump said rude things. In other words, Pence is worse than Trump for being in Trump’s proximity while Trump misbehaves. By that standard every hack and flack who went on TV to defend Bill Clinton in 1998 is worse than Clinton, including the person who blamed the true reports about his misconduct on the lies of a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”
John Oliver, the spirit animal of so much left-wing punditry, said on his post-election show that “Trump is not normal. . . . He’s a human, ‘What is wrong with this picture?’” He added, “But that is when you remember Mike f***ing Pence, who might be even worse — because he looks like he’s from the 1950s, but he thinks like he’s from the 1650s.” To Oliver, Trump is a “racist” “Klan-backed, misogynist Internet troll,” but Pence might be worse because he looks funny — or rather, because he doesn’t look funny.
But as unprecedented as Trump is, Pence is just as precedented. As unheard-of as Trump’s communication habits are, Pence’s are equally heard-of. If Trump is a shock to the system, Pence is a cup of chamomile tea. If “This is not normal” is your mantra, you could hardly hope for a more normal Republican than Mike Pence.
“Normal Republican,” though, the thing the Left has openly wished for all these months, reverts to being an oxymoron should Pence come within sight of the presidency. His promotion would make progressives reach for the old playbook: Attack as a dangerous theocrat who hates women, minorities, and gays. No matter that the evidence for any of this is thin (unlike, say, the evidence for Trump’s volatility or unfitness). Opposition to abortion, or even opposition to government funds being directed to the nation’s leading abortion provider, will be recast as posing a supreme danger to “women’s health.” Disagreeing that we need a federal bathroom policy will be recast as “hate.” It was completely unacceptable even to “normalize” the man who earned 306 electoral votes on November 8. But Pence will be called even more abnormal because he deflects questions about evolution as beyond his pay grade.
Because Pence is a man of faith, the ludicrous attempt to tie the secular, non-moralizing Trump to the neo-Puritan misogynist dystopia imagined in the new TV series The Handmaid’s Tale will be recharged, only this time at 10,000 volts. Pence will be labeled an extremist for being part of the American Christian majority. We’ll be told that Pence’s misogyny is even more outlandish than Trump’s because he declines to have boozy one-on-one dinners with women other than his wife. We’ll hear lies about how Pence wants to electrocute gays to convert them to heterosexuality, or at very least that Pence hates gay Americans.
If Trump is removed from office in a soft coup, the question for the elites is how to keep Trump’s base from violent rebellion. In my opinion, they plan to plant child pornography on Trump’s communications devices–phones, laptops, whatever he uses.
That’s why they pressed embattled Trump long and hard over:
1. Trump’s alleged sexual interest in teenage Ivanka.
2. Trump’s walking into teen beauty contestant dressing rooms filled with half naked girls.
3. The phony Russian dossier that claimed that Trump was having prostitutes urinate as part of his sexual behavior.
4. His infamous “grab ’em” comment.
5. Various lawsuits brought by women who claimed that Trump sexually assaulted them.
We’ve been set up to believe that Trump is a sexual deviant. It would be easy for special prosecutor Robert Mueller to see to it that child porn was planted on Trump. When that bombshell was made public, Trump would be history. Would Pence be implicated too to force him to resign to make way for Ryan? They killed Kennedy and tried to kill Reagan. They will stop at nothing.
