Destroying Donald Trump is all that matters in the newsrooms of the mainstream media

By Wesley Pruden The Washington Times Thursday, May 18, 2017

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Now anything goes. All restraints are loosened, all self-discipline trashed. There’s no cure or even treatment for Trump Derangement Syndrome, a disease as wild and as swiftly lethal as anything imported from the Ebola River valley of the dark continent. The rules and taboos that once guided even the sleaziest excuse for a newspaper no longer apply.

Destroying Donald Trump is all that matters in the newsrooms of the mainstream media, so called, and by any means necessary. Rarely have so many hysterics contributed so much of the national conversation.

A columnist in The New York Times, ground zero in the epidemic of Trump Derangement Syndrome, suggests that a mutiny at the White House is the “more appropriate” way to rid the nation of the legitimate 46th duly elected president of the United States. Why waste time on impeachment? Mike Pence, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell could organize the ambush. The columnist likens them to “stewards for a syphilitic emperor.”

Ross Douthat is regarded as a “conservative” at The New York Times, and he thinks impeachment would take too long, be too messy, and recommends invoking the Twenty-fifth Amendment, which permits the president’s Cabinet to remove the president if a majority of the secretaries tells Congress that the president can no longer perform his duties.

Ultimately, he writes in the newspaper once known as “the old gray lady” and which has become “the old crazy lady,” he does not believe “our president sufficiently understands the nature of the office he holds, the nature of the legal constraints that are supposed to bind him, perhaps even the nature of normal human interactions, to be guilty of obstruction of justice in the Nixonian or even Clintonian sense of the phrase.”

A half-century ago a certain magazine thought a long-distance psychiatric examination of a presidential candidate was in order, and asked 12,000 psychiatrists (who knew there were so many headshrinkers on the fruited plain?) whether they thought Barry Goldwater was crazy, and 1,189 responded with a diagnosis: Mr. Goldwater, the Republican nominee for president in 1964, was nothing less than nuts. The American Psychiatric Association, sensitive to the public outrage that followed, told their members never to do it again.

But since the psychiatrists wouldn’t do it, Ross Douthat was fitted out with degrees in medicine and psychiatry (honorary degrees, we must hope), and told to get to work. (He is expected to retire his shingle once President Trump has been dispatched to the nut house, but who knows? On the Upper East Side there’s never enough psychiatrists.) Dr. Douthat writes that the president has no aides, friends and confidantes who have any remaining regard for him. “They have no respect for him, indeed they seem to palpate with contempt for him, and to regard their mission as equivalent to being stewards for a syphilitic emperor.”

Since impeachment would take so long, Dr. Douthat would “respectfully ask Mike Pence and Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to reconsider their support for a man who never should have had his party’s nomination, never should have been elevated to this office, never should have been endorsed and propped up and defended by people who understood his unfitness all along.”

It’s hard to imagine anything more calculated to invoke a Second Amendment answer to such a Twenty-fifth Amendment coup, and it would be nothing less than a coup by the Republican elites and the press that so many Americans believe have “rigged” the elections meant to express the nation’s will. You don’t have to be a Trump friend, supporter or voter to see where this would inevitably lead. The United States has never been a banana republic or a third world dump where elections are ultimately determined in the streets, but this would be the ultimate national indignity, wrought by just those who would go to civil war to depose an indignity.

The two stories that have dominated the news this week were the work of the very two newspapers, The Washington Post and The New York Times, that have become the not-so-loyal opposition, drivers of the coup with tales told in every edition. The Post accuses the president of dispensing national secrets to the Russians, based on the word of an anonymous source who concedes he wasn’t in the meeting, and denied by those who were. The New York Times says it heard a passage read from a memo written by James Comey, telling how the president asked him go easy on Mike Flynn, and denied by the White House.

All this to support tales of Trump campaign collusion with the Russians, which Democrats and Republicans agree that no one has yet found any evidence of. There’s no fire and only a few wisps of something that might be smoke, or more likely, the passing of partisan gas.

Democrats/liberals have progressed through stages of being on the rag, to going through the change, to just being hormonally imbalanced or senile, resulting in their outbursts of hysteria.

Certainly, that is their maximum goal.

However, they'll settle for hobbling him under a hail of suspicions, innuendos and fake scandals. This is pure distraction, intended to keep him from enacting his agenda even if they can't bring Trump down.

Some Dems in the media do worry that at some point, it could backfire on them by overplaying their hand so histrionically that Trump gains support as a result.

That's similar to how liberals hobbled Sarah Palin when she was Governor of Alaska.

I think it would be naive to think that impeaching Trump or driving him out of office is all they want. They'll settle for crippling his political momentum and making him so radioactive that the GOP Congress will have nothing to do with him. We saw some of this in the Bush years so it isn't as though this strategy can't succeed.

Trump and Bannon need a plan to deal with this. They have to make some news and drive the agenda. Or the press corps will constantly set the agenda instead.

It is strategery. We'll have to see if Trump can play this particular media game.

The GOP Congress won't need much to give themselves that excuse.

"Trump and Bannon need a plan to deal with this."

In addition to driving the agenda, I'd like to see Trump go on the offensive in other areas. Total war. Scorched earth.

-- Initiate a lawsuit with the ultimate goal of challenging Sullivan v New York in the USSC.

-- Charge a news outlet with violating state secrets and force them to give up their sources. If the reporter refuses, jail him.

-- Indict Hillary, Huma and the whole "secret server" gang.

-- Indict Lois Lerner and all those responsible at the IRS for harassing conservative groups.

-- Indict Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton for obstruction.

If the MSM likes investigations and Congressional testimony, let's flood them with some with real meat.

Kushner and Bannon sat next to somebody's grandson. That is powerful evidence that there was an occasion where they sat in very near proximity to somebody's grandson. Roosevelt and Churchill sat next to Joseph Stalin.

As for the intellectual influences of neo-conservatism, the historical evidence is just a tad more specific.

https://www.britannica.com/topic/neoconservatism

[excerpt]

Intellectual influences

Among their intellectual ancestors neoconservatives count the ancient Greek historian Thucydides for his unblinking realism in military matters and his skepticism toward democracy, as well as Alexis de Tocqueville, the French author of Democracy in America (1835–40), who described and analyzed both the bright and the bad sides of democracy in the United States. More recent influences include the German-born American political philosopher Leo Strauss and several of his students, such as Allan Bloom; Bloom’s student Francis Fukuyama; and a small band of intellectuals who in their youth were anti-Stalinist communists (specifically Trotskyites) before becoming liberals disillusioned with liberalism. The latter include Irving Kristol, Nathan Glazer, and Norman Podhoretz, among others.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Trotsky

Leon Trotsky, born Lev Davidovich Bronstein; 7 November [O.S. 26 October] 1879 – 21 August 1940) was a Marxist revolutionary and theorist, and a Soviet politician who engineered the transfer of all political power to the Soviets. Trotsky initially supported the Menshevik Internationalists faction of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party. He joined the Bolsheviks just before the 1917 October Revolution, and immediately became a leader within the Communist Party.

Just like the Bush Crime Family themselves.

IIRC,they got their real start by marrying into the Harriman Banking Family. Prior to that they were just successful upper-management people. After that they became bullet proof political power houses.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

Ok,I wuz wid ya,right up to the point you typed the name "Roosevelt",and shot yourself in the foot.

Roosevelt ADMIRED Stalin. Churchill,on the other hand,would have cheerfully set Stalin on fire and used the fire to light a fine cigar. Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher were the two best things that ever happened to England.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yalta_Conference

Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin sat next to one another at the Yalta Conference in 1945 as pictured at above link.

As you point out, Roosevelt and Churchill held very different opinions of Stalin. Sitting next to Stalin did not make Churchill a communist. Sitting next to Churchill did not makle FDR a conservative. Such a photo is meaningless. And that was THE Joseph Stalin, not his grandson.

The photo of Bannon and Kushner next to the grandson of Mohamed Bin Abdul Wahab is less meaningful than someone in a picture sitting next to someone three degrees removed from Kevin Bacon.

The Bushes intermarried with the Walker family.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._Averell_Harriman

The Harriman fortune was first gathered by Harriman the railroad magnate. Averill Harriman used daddy's money to start a Wall Street banking business, Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., whose employees included George Herbert Walker and Prescott Bush. Averill Harriman was another Yale Skull & Bones alumnus.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Herbert_Walker

Walker started a banking and investment firm named G.H. Walker & Co. in 1900. His family had developed many international banking contacts, and he helped organize the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Walker was known as the power behind the local Democratic Party.

In 1920, Walker became the President of the W.A. Harriman & Co. investment firm, and quickly arranged the credits that W. Averell Harriman needed to take control of the Hamburg-Amerika Line. Walker also organized the American Ship and Commerce Corp. to be subsidiary of the W.A. Harriman & Co., with contractual power over the affairs of the Hamburg-Amerika. W.A. Harriman & Co. (renamed Harriman Brothers & Company in 1927) well-positioned for this enterprise and rich in assets from their German and Russian business, merged with the British-American investment house Brown Bros. & Co. on January 1, 1931. Walker retired to his own G.H. Walker & Co. This left the Harriman brothers, his son-in-law Prescott Bush and Thatcher M. Brown as senior partners of the new firm of Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prescott_Bush

The Bush family moved to Columbus, Ohio, in 1923, where Prescott briefly worked for the Hupp Products Company. In November 1923, he became president of sales for Stedman Products in South Braintree, Massachusetts. During this time, he lived in a Victorian house at 173 Adams Street in Milton, Massachusetts, where his son, George H. W. Bush, was born.

In 1924, Bush became vice-president of the investment bank A. Harriman & Co. where his father-in-law, George Herbert Walker was president. Bush's Yale classmates and fellow Bonesmen E. Roland Harriman and Knight Woolley also worked with the company.

In 1925, he joined the United States Rubber Company of New York City as manager of the foreign division, and moved to Greenwich, Connecticut.

In 1931, he became a partner of Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., which was created through the 1931 amalgamation of A. Harriman & Co with Brown Bros. & Co., (a merchant bank founded in Philadelphia in 1818) and with Harriman Brothers & Co. (established in New York City in 1927).

The picture showing Mohamed Bin Abdul Wahab, somebody's grandson, sitting next to two upstanding, conservative Americans of Christian or Jewish faith, proves 2-1 that Wahab is an upstanding, Republican-leaning conservative of Christian or Jewish faith.
