About that anonymous op-ed

September 6, 2018

Isn’t it incredibly coincidental that every time President Trump has a good week, or the Democrats have a bad week, the media immediately distract us with another “White House insider blows the whistle on Trump” story? I guess Judge Kavanaugh was so impressive and the Democrats so repulsive that the media felt the need to flog two such non-stories: first Bob Woodward’s latest Harry Potter-like tome of fantastic bleats, and then the New York Times ran an anonymous op-ed by an alleged “senior Administration official,” conveniently affirming all the most fevered anti-Trump claims of the left

The writer (the Times refused to give the name, but used the word “he”) claims that a secret cabal of patriots inside the White House is working to move the country in the right direction by undermining what they think are Trump’s wrongheaded policies, personality flaws, incorrect views and mental instability. I’m sure the Times sees this as heroic somehow.

First of all, a reality check: There are thousands of Administration staffers, hundreds of whom might be called “senior.” Some are no doubt bitter Obama holdovers who think it’s their job to play termite to any incoming Republican. I got a taste of that juvenile spitefulness in Arkansas when I arrived at work on my first day as Lieutenant Governor to find my office door inaccessible because the doors had been nailed shut. There were also reports of Clinton staffers destroying computer keyboards and other adolescent vandalism to make it hard for George W. Bush to get up and running. But nobody’s had to deal with more internal sabotage than Trump, because nobody previously was elected as an outsider to change business-as-usual.

To be blunt, with the New York Times having long ago flushed its journalistic integrity down the toilet, there’s no way to be certain that their op-ed writer is legitimate or even real. (It would hardly be the first time the Times ran fiction as fact – see “Jayson Blair.”) But if this person actually is a White House official with any responsibility over policy or access to the President, then he is no hero. He’s a pathetic weasel, pretending to be a patriot and taking a paycheck from the President while secretly betraying, subverting and undermining his Presidency.

The Times routinely opines that Trump is a threat to democracy, yet they give a positive platform to an anonymous, unelected turncoat who seeks to substitute his Beltway wisdom for the agenda Americans voted for. The people elected Trump precisely because they were fed up with arrogant, elitist Beltway insiders who think they’re geniuses because they got into an Ivy League school as legacies and whose policies have created the dangerous fiscal and international mess and the entrenched Deep State that Trump was elected to fix.

If this person thinks he can do the job better than the President, instead of hiding his name and cowering behind the Gray Lady’s skirt, let him do what I did: put his real name on the ballot and run for President. And when he loses, accept the will of the people (there seem to be precious few of us anymore who still cling to that hoary old American concept of respecting the will of the voters.)

Of course, all this only applies if the story isn’t a complete fabrication, which is entirely possible these days. The media crank these stories out so often, they sometimes spark mental whiplash as their contradictory anti-Trump narratives clash. For instance, on Tuesday, they were babbling that Trump was mentally unstable and had to be removed from office because he thinks everyone is working against him. On Wednesday, they said he needs to be removed from office because he’s mentally unstable, according to all the anonymous people around him who are working against him.

In fact, if this story is real, then the only thing it proves is that Trump was absolutely right to say there’s a “deep state” of entrenched Washington insiders who work to thwart the will of the people. You’d think that might be the story angle the Times would pick up on, but then, reporters ain’t what they used to be.

Here are some official comments from someone that this pathetic weasel isn’t fit to share office space with:

    Thank you. I totally agree that the story did not appear to be creditable.

    One way to get to the bottom of this is to give a lie detector test to all those in the know. If they lie fire them if they refuse fire them. It is time to get all the Obama hold outs out of the whitehouse. Drain the swamp!!!!!!!

    Thank you for this Mr. H, I needed to hear something positive from someone I trust about this oped because I worry a bit sometimes; as if the Trump Presidency is too good to be true and something bad is going to happen and it's all going to come crashing down. I like not having a Democrat for President, I love what President Trump is doing and I want it to keep going. Maybe it's a good thing to worry a bit, it causes us to pray even more!

    God Bless!

    There is a simple way to get these turn coats out of theadministration. Make them all take a lie detector test. Those that fail fire them. Those that refuse fire them. If we ever want to keep this country moving forward we need to get serious about ridding the swamp with the dc elites.

    Governor; isn’t it interesting that as the “deep state “ rats feel the pressure of exposure, the employ even more desperate tactics to try and afflict harm to the POTUS and our Republic!!! If it were Not so serious it’d be laughable! Anything and everything to turn the people’s attention away from the “Real Crooks “ Hillary and the Democratic gang!!!!!

    I am with you on this Mike. I commented earlier today to my local radio station that I firmly believe this "senior insider" is ficticious. I believe it is made up tripe to yet further distract those that are STILL not happy that Trump won the White House, keeping them from realizing all the good that has been accomplished. Does he (POTUS) act uncharacteristic of past presidents? YES. But, that is one of the best things about having him in office. His approach is so non-partisan (business informed) that improvements are inevitable.

    The thing smacks of Schuller and Pelosi, IMHO. One not fit to be in office the other a real worm.
