“I am your retribution.” That’s a rather strange promise for a former President and future candidate to make, isn’t it? Why did Donald Trump make that promise on the campaign trail for his second presidency?
President Trump is right, however. Not because of what has been done to him during and since his term in office. But because of what the assault on him really means: a war on you and your sacred right to choose who should be President.
I’m going to make the case for you. I’m no attorney, but I’m going to make a case for you that the assault on the President is really an assault on you and all of us. How does it all begin?
It begins before the 2016 election, a month before that election, when President Obama and the then-Vice President, Joe Biden, were in the White House, in the Oval Office, and were briefed on something called “Operation: Crossfire Hurricane.” An operation that was run by the then-head of the FBI, James Comey, and the then-head of the CIA, John Brennan. The first time ever in history that multiple intelligence agencies, including the NSA, were authorized by that man, by Obama, to do what? To spy on a presidential campaign.
Let me repeat that: The FBI, the CIA, and the NSA were authorized by Obama to spy on a presidential campaign.
Who was the #1 target outside of the Presidential candidate, Donald Trump? It was a great patriot; it was my former colleague, my friend, Mike Flynn, an individual who’d served decades in uniform, up to the rank of the Director of Defense Intelligence, an individual who told the truth about Al-Qaeda, and that is why Obama fired him from that position.
But Mike was coming back into the new Trump Administration as the National Security Adviser, above the Cabinet, the most important person outside of the Oval Office, an individual who knew where the bodies were buried and what the Obama Administration had done to undermine our Republic.
As a result, because of that knowledge, he had to be removed from the Trump Team. And that’s exactly what the FBI did.
But it wasn’t just General Flynn. It was lesser-known characters associated with the incoming President. Individuals like Carter Page and George Papadopoulos who were targeted by the FBI and the CIA, even to the extent of George Papadopoulos being targeted in a sting operation. Yes, a sting orchestrated by the FBI.
What was the main weapon in Operation Crossfire Hurricane? It was a smear dossier. It was an absolute tissue of lies created by two men: Christopher Steele, a disgraced former MI-6 agent, a British spy, and Glenn Simpson, the founder of something called FusionGPS, who created the Steele dossier about so-called “Russian collusion” that was all fabricated, based on lies obtained from a Russian agent based in DC. It didn’t matter that they were lies; that dossier was peddled by Nellie Ohr, at FusionGPS, a quote-unquote “Russia expert,” to her husband Bruce Ohr, a government official, a senior government official working at the Department of Justice.
And that smear campaign was used to justify further intelligence activities under the banner of “Russian collusion” against President Trump. A smear campaign that, sadly, was propagated by the late Senator McCain, an individual who was the quintessence of establishment Republicanism, a RINO who hated the idea of someone coming from outside the Republican establishment to become the highest, most powerful individual in the land. Yes, Senator McCain was part of the Russian collusion hoax.
But it needed foot soldiers beyond the people at the top: CIA director, FBI director, you needed individuals like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page at the FBI and the DOJ, who now we know from their texts to each other. These people, who were married at the time to other people but were having affairs with each other, they said, “Don’t worry, don’t worry about Trump, we have a quote-unquote ‘insurance policy.’”
What was that insurance policy? Was it the Deep State hitman Robert Mueller? Who wanted his old job back as Director of the FBI, but President Trump didn’t want to give it to him because he was old and likely compromised cognitively. But his buddies in the Deep State made him what? Special investigator, Special Counsel, to investigate Russia collusion to see if they could take down the new President by having him removed. 20 months of investigation, $40 million of your money wasted, with not one shred of evidence of Russian collusion.
But it gets worse.
The war on American democracy and our Republic gets much worse. We have a fifth columnist. We have people inside the Trump Administration. Alexander, “Sasha,” “Don’t Call Me Mr.” Vindman, a Colonel in the National Security Council who lied about the quote-unquote “perfect phone call” to the President. Zelenskyy by President Trump. A phone call that truly was perfect because it’s our duty to investigate corruption in America involving foreign nationals.
The President of Ukraine was asked, “What’s going on with Americans getting lots of money from Ukrainian corrupt entities like Burisma?” People like Hunter Biden! How’s he getting $83,000 a month from a corrupt energy company? Yes, $83,000 a month. That is the level of the Deep State corruption: protecting their own and taking down a President who wants to know the truth.
At the same time, we have individuals like Miles Taylor, A Fifth Columnist in the Department of Homeland Security, who wrote the infamous “Anonymous” letter to the New York Times and then afterward admitted he’s a part of the “resistance.” That’s a political appointee inside the Department of Homeland Security. What is he resisting? He’s resisting you, the will of the American people.
But subversive elements, resistance movements, have to have their armed wings, because that’s how irregular warfare works. And what were those armed wings? Well, you lived through it. Antifa, BLM, the “summer of love,” rioting across America; so serious that it ended up with violence at Lafayette Square and an assault on the White House, the first time ever in the history of the White House bunker, that the First Family had to be evacuated.
Afterward, President Trump sent a very clear message: He walked across that Square to the Church they tried to firebomb, held up a Bible, and he said, “We are not intimidated.” At the same time, the most senior military officer in America, a disgrace to the uniform he barely fits into, Mark Milley, regretted standing with the President. Could that have something to do with the fact that he was working with the Chinese? Admitting that, he told his counterpart, General Li in Beijing, “don’t worry if the President has plans against China, I’ll give you a heads-up.”
Yes. It’s a war against the man you chose to be President. A war involving not one but two impeachments, two failed impeachments, but an attempt by those in Congress to undermine the will of the American people.
And then, before the 2020 election, we had what? 51 intelligence officers, retired individuals at the top of the intelligence community saying, “No no no, the Hunter Biden laptop? That’s Russian disinformation. You don’t need to believe that.” These men and women are traitors. John Brennan. Mike Hayden. James Clapper. Mike Morell. All working with the CIA to affect an information war assault on the will of the American people.
And don’t listen to me. Listen to the Left. Listen to what they did during the 2020 election under the cover of COVID—all those drop-boxes for mail-in ballots. Mark Zuckerberg dropped over $400 million to privately fund an election. That’s illegal. And they were so hubristic they actually admitted it. In an article in Time, they said, “Hey! Here’s our secret plan. Here’s how we, quote-unquote, ‘defended the election.’” Molly Ball’s infamous article about the secret plan the Left implemented to protect America from choosing President Trump again. They actually admitted it.
And now we have judges, we have prosecutors, we have all over the nation; from Jack Smith, to Judge Chutkan, to Fani Willis, to Alvin Bragg, using the power of the courts to try and imprison the man they hope you won’t elect to a second term in the White House. He’s facing over 700 years in prison. Why? Well, because they don’t want you to elect him.
And what did we just find out a few days ago? Jack Smith, he probably spied on you. He obtained a warrant from the DOJ to get the names and addresses of everyone on social media who liked any post by President Trump concerning his case. That’s probably millions of people. Probably tens of millions.
President Trump is right. We need some to be our retribution. Retribution against all the unelected officials, judges, and intelligence officers who think they can sabotage who you choose to be President.
