Steps ahead

It's rather amusing to see how the God-Emperor Ascendant no sooner gets criticized for something nonsensical by the Left than his actions obviate the basis for their criticism:
Vice President-elect Mike Pence reportedly ordered the removal of all lobbyists from president-elect Donald Trump's transition team, The Wall Street Journal wrote on Tuesday night.

The decision was one of Pence's first since formally taking over the team's lead role. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was abruptly dismissed from the post last week.

Critics have excoriated Trump for including lobbyists, Washington insiders, and Republican Party veterans among his team, suggesting it contradicts the anti-establishment message that defined his campaign.

"[Americans] do not want corporate executives to be the ones who are calling the shots in Washington," Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said earlier Tuesday. "What Donald Trump is doing is that he's putting together a transition team that's full of lobbyists — the kind of people he actually ran against," she said.
Will Fauxcahauntas praise Trump for actually draining the swamp? Of course not! Because Warren isn't anti-establishment, she was just grabbing what she mistakenly thought was a useful club with which to hit Trump.

But, as usual, the God-Emperor Ascendant is several steps ahead of his bumbling opposition. As entertaining as the Obama administration was, the Trump administration promises to be even more so, albeit in an entirely different way.

Then, for a night cap, Trump proceeded to upset the entire press corps by going out to dinner with his family without inviting them as is apparently traditional. And received a standing ovation when he walked into the steak house.

The mainstream media think Trump is a madman and in disarray because they've never seen this level of competence in action before. One thing that is amazing about the God-Emperor Ascendant is the speed with which he acts once he decides that someone is not up to fulfilling their responsibilities to his liking. Never forget, this is a man who changed campaign managers THREE TIMES in the course of a campaign, and won. He didn't win DESPITE changing them, he won BECAUSE he changed them.

Rogers was told that all team members picked by Christie were being ousted, The Journal reported, citing a source familiar with the situation. 

Translation: settle down, everyone. Trump has no intention of letting the neocons or the GOPe interfere with his administration. That doesn't mean there won't be anyone from the status quo on his team; many individuals have legitimate and relevant experience that could be of genuine utility to him. But it's pretty clear already that if they get out of line or attempt to exert any undue influence on him, they won't be there long.

Trump likes to test people and give them enough rope to hang themselves. My guess, and it is nothing more than that, is that Chris Christie gave him certain assurances, then promptly went ahead and violated them as he tried to impose status quo shackles on the God-Emperor Ascendant, thereby prompting the house-cleaning. It wouldn't surprise me at all to learn Donald Trump Jr. was somehow involved in that process. One senses an uncompromising and merciless hand in all of this.

Brilliant move. Make friendly gestures towards the lobbyists so that they'll ooze out of the woodwork and expose themselves, then send your number two man to deliver the chop.

This reminds me of the story of Vlad the Impaler inviting his treacherous boyars to dinner, then, after pointing out to said boyars the high turnover rate for rulers in the region because of their treachery, he marches them off in chains to go build a castle.

I always hoped and expected the population would reach the level of awareness that, should the national debt be erased (I know, fantasy), then subsequent fiscal spending would be under much more scrutiny. This would depend on other advancements, such as the education system teaching actual truth.

Right now, the spending and debt levels are almost beyond comprehension, like the flu or something.

An awful lot of Empires insisted that the Emperor be given a place in the local pantheon of the conquered, or that the position of Emperor was itself Divine. TO attribute that to Trump is a historical allusion. If he claimed it, well then; that would be blasphemy, as it would if we attributed to him the Tetragrammaton, which we assuredly have not; further, it mocks the "Lightbringer" messianic cult of Obama perfectly.

Blogger Stilicho November 16, 2016 6:32 AM  

Tom, in one sense it is particularly apt: it is a modern, political equivalent of "Ave Imperator!" chanted by the legions on the battlefield and it frightens the leftists for that reason even if few understand the allusion.

On a religious note, I do not think anyone is placing any god before the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob with this utterance and we have to trust in His ability to discern the hearts of men. Of course, if one IS violating those precepts in his heart, then all bets are off.

(((Mark))), maybe you didn't get the memo after you finally decided to stop with the #NeverTrump bullshit. There is NOTHING worth "conserving" in Mordor-on-the-Potomac right now. Sure, the same players are there, but Trump decided he didn't want to play checkers and instead brought his own copy of 3-D chess. AND he expects them to know how to play coming out of the gate, when we all know they want to haggle over the rules before even moving the first piece.

The game has changed, (((sir))). Sure, we have to deal with neocons in some capacity, but I guarantee you that each person going in to discuss a particular position agrees to the same condition: you fuck up even once, your ass is fired and you will NEVER work in this town again.

I suspect that this is one of the reasons they are in meltdown mode right now. They already fired their nukes and they failed to destroy him. Now all they have left is their slingshot.

Beyond this, I believe, based on Trump's history, that high performers will get his total loyalty no matter what dirt is released about them or what unintentional gaffes may occur. Loyalty like that gets results.

They're still stuck on their election strategy. I keep wanting to tell them: "I already voted. There's really no point in trying to discourage me by telling me [sources] say Trump might be thinking about perhaps assigning an establishment liberal to one position. Even if I were dumb enough to fall for it now after not falling for it over the last year, it's too late. He won, you lost."

And right on schedule, his conservative critics are discovering that maybe they can work with a Trump presidency at all -- and they've decided this work should be to tone-police his administration and continue attacking him personally. They just can't help themselves.

I find the common libertarian response sad. Sure, I get it. Trump's no purist.

There have been TWO whole position filled at this time, that I am aware of. Who knew they wore panties? Do they need a fainting couch? I single out the otherwise excellent Bob Wenzel for particular scorn in this regard. Both his blogs are now hysterical (and I don't mean "funny").

It's not that hard people. If something is not sourced from a named member of the Trump Team, it's bogus. Although I do so want to see Milo in the White House.

Fuck off with this Cruz bullshit.

Your man lost, then had the audacity to try to stage a coup on the convention floor, failing that launched his campaign for the 2020 elections during what was supposed to be a welcoming speech and endorsement of our President, Trump. To make it worse, not only did Trump know he was going to do this--he allowed him to do it so as to allow the man to show how faithless and feckless Cruz really was.

It doesn't matter if Cruz might be well suited for the job, he's a traitor and a cuckservative. Trump could never trust him and just like with Christie will not tolerate him. Why would you even think Trump would consider accepting Cruz into a position when he's just removed Christie for betrayal?

"I think Cruz would be an absolutely brilliant choice for Attorney General."

I rather like him for Scalia's replacement, but there may be better choices. The problem we have is that for forty years or more lawyers with Supreme Court ambitions have been carefully hiding what they are. Getting past that and finding someone who won't turn out to be a closet lefty is tough. Cruz has spent too long being obnoxiously (to the left) rightish for me to worry that this would happen with him.

Still, if someone has a better candidate. No, not me.

We don't have a shortage of legal minds in this country. I seem to recall Trump releasing a list of potential judges that impressed conservatives during the campaign. He should probably stick to it.

The desire to find a spot (any spot, really) for Cruz seems born of the idea that it would bring Cruzlim NeverTrumpers back into the fold. It wouldn't, first of all, and why would Trump want to heal a rift with people who haven't stopped calling him a racist loose cannon yet?

Blogger Shimshon November 16, 2016 9:55 AM  

@58 Exactly. A meeting between Cruz and the team happened. That's all we know. A SCOTUS list was published months ago, Cruz-less. I think the logical speculation is, one his appearance lets Trump appear Presidential, and two, as a leading Republican Senator, Cruz can be useful in getting nominees approved. Maybe there's an appointment in the works, but it doesn't jibe with what we know of Trump. AG is too important to give to such a weasel.

I think the smart move would be for Trump to privately hint to Cruz that he would be his SC nominee for the NEXT vacant seat (probably Ginsburg's). That would give Cruz incentive to remain loyal to Trump in the Senate for the next few years. When Cruz finally gets nominated, near the end of Trump's presidency, he won't have enough time to stab Trump in the back if that was indeed his intention.

A couple of points: The AG serves at the pleasure of the president and can be removed (Fired!) at any time should he get out of line. The Senate would be glad to be rid of Cruz and would likely confirm his appointment immediately. Also, as I already pointed out, filling his seat with a friendly vote is a minimal risk. Lastly, I know many here believe pragmatism is overrated, but considering a good part of the wall that Trump wants to erect will be in Texas, Cruz's home state and where he has a close and long time relationship with Governor, Greg Abbot, and and extensive relationships with the bureaucratic machinery in Texas, Cruz would be a smart initial choice for AG if only temporarily.

Blogger Ingot9455 November 16, 2016 10:44 AM  

Much as I liked Cruz in the beginning, he totally misplayed Colorado and all throughout acted like a stuck-up lawyer trying to litigate himself votes instead of winning hearts and minds. Rhetoric, people!

If he had ended his first-eighteen-minutes-brilliant speech with a ringing endorsement of Trump and an attack on the press, he would have been the man who brought the party together, he would have had a seat at any table, and the pick of all these positions such as you all describe.

But he did not.

His wife (half Jewish by birth) converted to Christianity (I think I read this) and stays home with their 5 children, whereas Ivanka pushes "rights" for working mothers.

I don't think referring to the President of the US with humor as the name of a fictional character even though we are quite fond of Trump rises to even a petty sin.

I don't think, having the notion that he might have been aided a bit by Him qualifies either

G.D and similar expletives are is sinful because we misuse the word God and because of intent

and no doubt everyone here knows this but His holy name is not God which is generic but Jehovah or Yaweh if you prefer . Its a grave sin to swear false oaths on that Holy Name though or to misuse it or the name of his Son who is him if at least if you are a Trinitarian but even for non Trinitarians as well.

I would love to see you arguing that we need crucifixion because it is cruel and unusual. Half of those old women would have the vapors.

Cruz is not only treacherous, but another non-American the elites tried to foist on the country. He may be Canadian, but he is not American.

Let him die on the vine, as he'll probably never make it in Texas or any where else - except perhaps in Canada.

The alt-right should never trust WSj, the (((neocon))) controlled propaganda machine whose lies led to the Iraq and Libya disasters. Here are alternate views on removal of Christie and his aides.

Trump supporters should research Jared Kushner and Charles Kushner and what it implies for a Trump administration.

Some information on the delightful Kushner family.

Sources close to Jared Kushner, who is Ivanka Trump’s husband, say that Kushner has been telling them that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be Vice-President over his dead body. Kushner, who is playing an increasingly active role in the campaign, has a bitter history with Christie. Christie, when he was the US attorney of New Jersey, prosecuted his father, Charles Kushner, in a case that grabbed national headlines. The elder Kushner, pled guilty to 18 counts of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering in 2005. He received a 2 year prison sentence.

Wait. Kushner's father engaged in witness tampering? Oh yes:

The federal witnesses he had attempted to retaliate against were his sister and brother-in-law, who were cooperating with that same investigation. Kushner paid a prostitute $10,000 to lure his brother-in-law to a motel room at the Red Bull Inn in Bridgewater to have sex with him. A hidden camera recorded the activity, and Kushner sent the lurid tape to his sister, making sure the tape arrived on the day of a family party.

But, as usual, the God-Emperor Ascendant is several steps ahead of his bumbling opposition.

This is perhaps the most important takeaway from the election season.

Blogger Aeoli Pera November 16, 2016 2:53 PM  

As for the God Emperor title, it's impossible to talk about coherently without reference to the alt-right's ideology. As with national socialism, the alt-west considers it a useful troll which demoralizes opposition and emboldens allies.

Trump should let Cruz know that he fucked up during the campaign, but if he gets himself right and is a good loyal soldier in the senate for the next 4 years and during the next campaign he might earn himself a seat at the big boys table in the second term.

You've mentioned Don Jr several times, in contrast to most of the media focus is on Kushner as the key Trump relative to watch. What are you seeing that's different?


Ditto this question.

Cruz's political career is dead and done for, there are a million other Americans out there just as talented who aren't psychotic backstabbers.

Anonymous Discard November 16, 2016 4:39 PM  

Every state has an attorney general, with a clear record. There ought be plenty of talent out there to pick from.

Red pill lesson #1: You aren't special.

Red pill lesson #2: Nobody else is special either.

There's absolutely no reason for Trump to select Cruz for AG. This opens up a seat in the Senate. Its unnecessary to vacate his seat immediately since it'll bring chaos to the Senate when important legislation needs to be passed. The discussion about a position is mainly a ruse to see how Cruz responds to the Trump Administration. If Cruz is over the election, then Trump would be satisfied his agenda will have no problem passing in Congress. If Cruz proves to be a troublemaker, he'll find a way around him. Cruz might prove more useful if he just sits still and wins re-election in 2018. Trump is likely to run unopposed in 2018 just like what Obama did.

We need it because it is cruel and I would hope to make it no longer unusual.

Yeah, I'd like to see Trump just leaving aside a lot of the current losers like Christie, Cruz, Rubio and older ones like Palin, reach a little further down into the bench and get some people under 45 onto the field.

Blogger Nick S November 17, 2016 7:29 AM  

I think some of you aren't thinking this through and seeing the big picture. If Cruz left the senate for the AG spot, he will have placed his entire future in Trump's hands. Trump could either use him as he sees fit or end his career in government forever. It would be a win/win for Trump. Keep in mind that Trump is trying to mold an immigration policy that will stick for the entire country. Having the Justice Department working hand in glove with the state of Texas on this issue and others to develop a working model for the entire nation would be the best logical path and Cruz would be the best logical go-between for expediting the task. Remember, time is of the essence.

I don't presume, as a general rule, to speak for God. He seems to me to be somewhat touchy about that.
