Mueller Indictments are Old News

Monday night on his radio program, Mark Levin raised some rather compelling points and posited some interesting questions regarding the 12 count indictments “Special Council” Robert Mueller and his dream team of hack lawyers.

I’ve said many times that I am not a Trumpster, but the American people should not allow the President to be railroaded.

But as should be patently obvious, and should’ve been from the get-go, Mueller was selected to do one thing – bring down Trump. Or if that is not possible, damage him badly enough as to render him completely ineffective.

One can tell that Mueller has taken his task seriously, judging by his choices of attorneys on his dream team.

In September, Business Insider hailed the choices saying, “Mueller’s team boasts a storied amount of experience both prosecution and criminal defense, hailing from prestigious law firms like WilmerHale to top spots within various divisions of the Justice Department.”

Yes – they have plenty of experience dealing with the criminal element, as virtually all of them are former Obama or Clinton hacks and had donated to both their campaigns. Some clerked for the most leftist supreme Court justices, yet not a single one clerked for any conservative justice. Weird. read more

Outsider Trump has Become an Establishment Insider

by: the Common Constitutionalist

There are some strange goings on over at the Trump campaign. The kind of thing that should give pause to diehard Trumpists. It won’t, but it should. His supporters will just attempt to explain it away or label anyone questioning as mindless drones controlled by “Lyin Ted.”

I’m speaking about Trump’s sudden, seemingly odd love affair with establishment Republicans. By literally ostracizing Ted Cruz, he has also virtually cut himself off from the conservative base – the real conservative base.

Many, me included, proved that the Trump campaign knew well before Cruz’s speech at the convention that Ted would not endorse Donald Trump. Reince Priebus at the RNC knew as well, but instead of attempting to mend fences, Trump and the RNC decided this would be an opportunity to jettison Cruz and a good portion of the true conservative base.

Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and others have reminded us of Jeb Bush’s grand strategy to win the election. Coincidentally, this appears to be a similar strategy, although Trump has at least secured the nomination.

And now Trump appears to be all in with Priebus, the RNC and establishment Republicans. Somehow, this time around it will be a winning formula. It didn’t work for Bob Dole, John McCain or Mitt Romney – and George W. Bush had to pretend to be conservative to win. So did his dad, George H.W. Bush, claiming his presidency would be Reagan’s third term. read more
