Livid Ex-Trump Supporters Torching MAGA Caps Over DACA Betrayal

LOOKS LIKE TRUMP IS FINISHING THE JOB.

The Internet has been on fire today as anger has blazed in the guts, hearts, and minds of former Trump supporters.

Maybe Trump is drugged, maybe he wants to be impeached, or maybe he was conning folks from the beginning.

Whatever, it was amusing to listen to Sean Hannity on the radio this afternoon try to spin Trump’s disastrous effort to make nice with the much hated Chuck Schumer and the much ridiculed Nancy Pelosi.

Conservatives are livid after President Trump appears to have made a deal with Democrats in order to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program — claiming he’s abandoning his base and the stringent immigration platform he campaigned on.

Commentator Ann Coulter went on a Twitter tirade Thursday, furious that the president appeared to be reneging on his trademark border wall. “Put a fork in Trump, he’s dead,” the outspoken author and once-fervent Trump ally wrote. “At this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached?” And, “If we’re not getting a wall, I’d prefer President Pence,” she added.

To Coulter and others, Trump’s ultimate betrayal came after he met with Democratic congressional leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to try to save the so-called DREAMers who now face the possibility of deportation after Trump’s decision last week to rescind the program put in place by his predecessor, former President Obama.

Democrats on Wednesday night said the deal they made with Trump didn’t include funding for Trump’s border wall. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders soon tweeted that “excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to.” However, the president himself seemed to contradict that on Thursday when told reporters that “the wall will come later,” but insisted it wasn’t being abandoned altogether.

Trump underscored that the roughly 800,000 people who would be affected were brought here as children through “no fault of their own.” But one of the bills pushed by Democrats would allow a path for citizenship for those affected — something overwhelmingly opposed by the president’s base. And the fact that DACA was being taken up before anything to address the border wall or border security also inflamed the right wing.

Amid the backlash, Trump insisted to reporters, “We’re not looking at citizenship. We’re not looking at amnesty. We’re looking at allowing people to stay here.”

Ultimately, the specter of a deal on immigration with “Chuck and Nancy” — after caving last week on the debt ceiling and government funding, over the objections of GOP congressional leaders — seemed to be the final straw for many.

“This is not what we voted for,” conservative radio host Laura Ingraham said on her program. “We voted for someone who could do a good deal for the American man and woman.”

One of Ingraham’s callers, Michael from Georgia, lamented that Trump had “duped us.”

“That swamp he was gonna drain… he has jumped into that swamp,” the caller argued.

A caller from Arizona named Jody told Ingraham she was suffering from PTSD — “Pelosi Trump Schumer Disorder. I am done if they don’t build the wall.”

Late Wednesday night after news of the deal broke, Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity seemed to suggest Trump had been duped by Pelosi and Schumer, but that if he capitulated, it would be “over” for him.

Breitbart News’s website — run by Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon — blasted out headlines like “Trump Caves on DACA, Wants ‘Quick’ Amnesty for 800K Illegal Aliens” and “Families of Illegal Alien Murder Victims Confused, Angered by Possible DACA Deal.” It also highlighted a trending topic on Twitter: #AmnestyDon.

On Breitbart’s daily Sirius XM show, Tea Party Patriots leader Jenny Beth Martin said that if a deal does go through, Trump is no different than his despised former rival.

“We voted for Donald Trump because we wanted something different than what Hillary Clinton was gonna give this country… and the deal that we heard coming out of the White House… it’s what we would expect Hillary Clinton to give us,” Martin said.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, one of the most outspoken anti-immigration members of Congress, immediately blasted the reports of a deal on DACA on Twitter Wednesday night, saying if it was true the president had lost all credibility.

We need the parents of those killed by illegals to come out in force and blast Trump, the Democrats, and the Republican do-nothing Congress.

The pressure needs to be relentless. We can’t let this go.

(((Mueller))) Impanels Grand Jury, Goes After Trump Jr.

The investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into the affairs of President Donald Trump is heating up.

This is Post #1 today on a developing story that hints that the Deep State is progressing rapidly toward the removal of Donald Trump from the presidency.

Karl Denninger’s Market Ticker

If you’re Donald Trump that Mueller has reportedly convened a Grand Jury in his probe won’t keep you up at night. It is pretty-well settled that the DOJ cannot indict a sitting President.

However, if you’re anyone other than Trump and have either assisted him in the election process, in the transition or afterward and have had any sort of contact, directly or indirectly, with anyone Russian or for that matter anything else that might be construed to be a problem you won’t be sleeping well for quite some time.

Nobody else is immune from indictment while Trump is in office — not his kids, not his wife, nobody.

The opportunity to fire Mueller, which I think there’s a pretty clear argument for based on the appearance of conflict of interest, just expired. Firing him now may not get Trump impeached but it will destroy any ability for him to get one vote from a Democrat and a sizable number of Republicans for anything he wants for the remainder of his term.

Oh, and Trump can be indicted on the day he leaves office — so the fact that he can’t be indicted while President is no protection — it’s only a deferral. Theoretically the proceedings and votes of a Grand Jury are secret. In truth given how badly so-called “secret” things leak these days I expect that “secrecy” to last all about 30 seconds.

Mueller thinks he has something worthy of presentment to the Grand Jury or he wouldn’t do this. I have no idea what it is, but whatever it is he’s reasonably certain he can get at least one indictment out of it — and probably more than one. Remember that a Grand Jury only hears one side of the case — the prosecution’s side. There is no right to be heard or defend yourself before a Grand Jury; that comes later after you get indicted.

This is going to get ugly.

Denninger’s website includes comments, which you may want to read.

Trump can be criticized for not more quickly draining the swamp. As a consequence, Donald Jr. may either go to prison or be pardoned by Trump, which would likely result in his impeachment.

Trump is increasingly being closed in by the enemies of the people. I wonder if President Mike Pence will appoint Hillary Clinton as Vice President, then step aside to allow Hillary to become President, in a magnanimous gesture of bipartisanship.

WILL PRESIDENT PENCE STEP ASIDE FOR PRESIDENT HILLARY?

Graph and Video: Sources of American Immigration, 1820-2015

Who are America’s immigrants? What countries did they come from and when?

This post will get you into a higher level of knowledge about America’s immigration history.

There’s a brief story and comments at Zerohedge.

The story includes this video which has a very impressive animated map of immigration into the U.S.

The Zerohedge comment that sticks in my mind is the observation that the first wave of immigrants came for opportunity, but the latest wave came to parasite off the host.

Everything We’re Seeing is Social Engineering Designed to Start a New American Civil War

SCENE OF THE CONGRESSIONAL BASEBALL PRACTICE SHOOTINGS.

Libertarian journalist Kurt Nimmo correctly calls the (((Deep State))) plot to create a civil war in America. I can’t confirm it, but I did see something that claimed he said his former employer, Infowars, was a Jew-controlled false opposition. If that’s true, then you have to admire his honesty.

Here he omits some of the Deep State skullduggery that’s intended to cause the U.S. to blow up in civil unrest. Things like false flags, race replacement via mass immigration, false narratives like the Trump-Russia connection, impeachment, and many more causal factors are encouraging the taking up of arms.

Where he gets it right, he does so magnificently. As he says, the winner of the civil war will be the same as the winner of Civil War I–big, tyrannical, oppressive government.

Lew Rockwell

The shooting at a Republican baseball practice in Virginia shouldn’t come as a surprise. It’s the result of months of establishment agitprop. From Kathy Griffin posing with Trump’s severed head to a Trump-like Julius Caesar killed in Central Park play, the media has fixated on strife between the two establishment parties.

This isn’t an accident. It’s designed to keep Americans distracted and at each other’s throats as the economy slowly implodes and the wars expand with horrific toll.

The election of Trump provides a unique opportunity to create partisan battle lines. Social media is rife with venom and hatred as the alt-left faces off against the alt-right. Factions are established and receive support behind the scenes from George Soros, the Koch Brothers, and the Democrat “resistance,” a ludicrous moniker cooked up by the Democratic National Committee under its new chairman Tom Perez. The DNC announced it will throw a million dollars at its Summer of Resistance. This will further widen the political divide. Polarization is increasingly intense and the establishment propaganda media is fanning the flames. Violence is escalating. Antifa leftists attack Trump supporters and they respond in kind. Activists are now openly carrying weapons.

We’re in the early stages of an engineered civil war. Who benefits from this? The state. It’s a classic example of problem, reaction, solution. Create political violence, or exploit that which is already festering, and then unleash an authoritarian and militarized response.

Last year, a report by a government watchdog group tracked the weapon expenditures of the federal government and found nearly a billion and a half dollars in “military-style equipment” purchases for 67 of its non-military agencies, including the IRS and the EPA.

The federal government is preparing for civil unrest. The Pentagon is strategizing a response to large-scale civil unrest, not only in America but around the world. It began looking into this in 2008 after the engineered financial crisis. In 2013, it was reported the Department of Homeland Security engaged in a massive, covert military buildup. The DHS has purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, enough to sustain an Iraq-sized war for over twenty years. DHS has also acquired heavily armored tanks, which have been seen roaming the streets.

The state will exercise it monopoly of violence and terror. It’s the defining characteristic of the modern state. The endgame is an authoritarian police and surveillance state.

As the Nazi Hermann Goering knew, the people can always be brought to the bidding of their leaders as they respond to political violence. He said it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.

As an operative for Operation Gladio pointed out, in order to establish a police state innocent civilians must be attacked and killed to force the public to turn to the state and demand greater security.

Now that a so-called progressive, a Bernie Sanders volunteer, has shot up Republicans playing baseball, how long before Congress introduces yet another draconian law in response? Now that the political class has been targeted, it probably won’t take long.
