Senior officials are why we can't have America back

The God-Emperor really needs to step up his White House-cleaning:
The same emphasis on tax cuts for the elite before immigration reform for voters was also cited by Axios on August 20, in an article which claimed to explain why top staff chose to stay in the White House amid elite hatred of his populist, wage-boosting, pro-American priorities. Axios reported:

We talked to a half dozen senior administration officials, who range from dismayed but certain to stay, to disgusted and likely soon to leave. They all work closely with Trump and his senior team so, of course, wouldn’t talk on the record. Instead, they agreed to let us distill their thinking/rationale:

“You have no idea how much crazy stuff we kill”: The most common response centers on the urgent importance of having smart, sane people around Trump to fight his worst impulses. If they weren’t there, they say, we would have a trade war with China, massive deportations, and a government shutdown to force construction of a Southern wall.

“General Mattis needs us”: Many talk about their reluctance to bolt on their friends and colleagues who are fighting the good fight to force better Trump behavior/decisions. They rightly point out that together, they have learned how to ignore Trump’s rhetoric and, at times, collectively steer him to more conventional policy responses.
Massive deportations, a government shutdown, and a big beautiful Wall? Sounds pretty damned good to me!

What is wrong, I wonder, with presidents who get elected on the basis of a few key issues, then allow themselves to get talked out of their campaign promises despite having seen how exactly the same process has never worked out for any previous president?

Deportations and a big border wall are what Americans want. The God-Emperor must listen to them, and not the elitist morons who supposedly work for him. If I were him, I'd fire every single senior administration official who advised against building the wall immediately.

He's a man who understands the importance of loyalty, but the flip side of rewarding loyalty is being unmerciless to the disloyal.

The good thing is when there is a government shutdown, Trump, not Congress, effectively controls the budget.
Basically a super line-item veto. Trump can't impound funds (directly) but he can simply say we need to direct the little cash here, not there, e.g. not Planned Parenthood, anything to California, etc.

I realize as long as he's resolved to pursue his campaign promises, it doesn't matter what these guys say; he can just ignore them and keep moving forward. But why keep them around at all, where they can work on sabotaging your other advsiors and leak things like this that could demoralize your base?

When he took office, people who knew more about it than I said he couldn't just fire everyone, that many positions can't legally be fired without cause. Okay, fine, they couldn't all be fired on Jan. 21. But can't they ever be fired? Could the leaks be used as justification for firings? Could he cut budgets and eliminate positions that way? Is the president really required to keep around "senior officials" who are highly-placed enough to interfere with his wishes?

I don't remember past administrations, especially the Clintons, having so much trouble getting rid of the previous administration's hangers-on.

Possible visa restrictions on four countries that won't take deportees

The Trump administration is poised to impose visa restrictions on four Asian and African nations refusing to take back their citizens who've been deported from the United States, officials said Thursday.

The officials said Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea and Sierra Leone would soon be subject to sanctions. They're meant to coax "recalcitrant" countries into accepting the return of individuals the U.S. tries to remove. Under federal law, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson can stop all or specific types of visas from being issued to such nations.


If that isn't enough, close their embassies and send them all back.

Not buying that. Trump is savvy enough that if he read Infowars or other sites before, then he would still do it.

I don't remember past administrations, especially the Clintons, having so much trouble getting rid of the previous administration's hangers-on.

This is only because of one thing, taking a chance at the start of his administration to work with republican shits. He relied on them for recommendations and got swamp people who kept Trumpers out of the job line. Cernovich has covered that extensively. Cabinet and judge appointments are being held up by those same republican shits.

I am certain he must know who his enemies are now, so I'm expecting to see him take a hard stand on the budget ceiling negotiations to get the wall, and to get rid of the swamp rats in his administration.

You're not going to get a concrete answer because we don't have all the information. All we can do is speculate.

I personally believe Trump is playing the long game and trying to walk a fine line to get as much done as possible, with as much staying power as possible. It doesn't matter if it gets done this year, the point is to get it done by 2020, and I've always thought that would probably require cleaning out some establishment assholes in the 2018 elections. It may be he's purposely keeping some level of obstructionist dicks around to embolden his congressional opposition in the Republican party to drop their masks, thinking he's well handled. Then give it to them good and hard in the 2018 primaries.

But who knows? Like I said, we can only speculate about the exact plan and whether things are going according to it or not.

More conventional policy responses?
Obama 2.0 seems to be what is considered "conventional", since it has been the conventional for the past eight years.

I said it all during the campaign and I say it today. Donald Trump was a chance to effect "meaningful" and "positive" changes to save this country from oblivion. If he should fail, or refuse to do what he promised, or let himself be pulled off his horse by his daughter or son-in-law, then we are no worse off than we were under Obamba.

Starting again from square one does not mean we have lost the game. WE elected Trump president and we can elect another one if he is not up to the job, or too tired, or too distracted. Maybe next time we will get one that will get serious about doing what it takes to save this great nation.

WE can run out of time this way. No doubt that is true. Somebody might call time before we are finished. But WE are only trying to do this the peaceful, political way. If that does not work, then we can say we tried, and resort to the time-honored way of restoring balance and harmony to this unhappy land. So mote it be.

Perhaps I am unaware of the overall situation, but I can't see giving any money to the RNC.

I would say we are not getting what we want from Trump in part because he is not all that conservative. To put a label on him, he is more like a traditional liberal from many decades ago.

The other thing is that he is in a tough spot. The detail workings of Washington do not support what he wants to do. And as far as doing more radical stuff, the press would burn him and the loss of popular support would kill his agenda. People don't like radical change and if the press can portray him as a radical, well, that would be the end of getting anything done.

As far as being a supporter, he is the best we are going to get for now. For Alt-right to win the other side has to screw things up, which they are. But that will not be obvious until it happens. Maybe Trump is too soon with his agenda.

Doesn't everyone in the White House and the Executive Branch serve at the pleasure of the President?

Apparently not. I asked that soon after the inauguration, and was told many of them are civil service positions that aren't subject to replacement by each new president, so he would need cause to fire them. Maybe time to manufacture some cause.

"...and, at times, collectively steer him to more conventional policy responses."

The rest of it could be more-or-less true, but this final line feels like narrative-building to me. One problem with this stuff, even if they have no real influence on the president himself, is that they can influence others. He's currently trying to bend several different groups to his will: his own staff, the generals who don't want to give up their trannies, the Senate, activist judges, sanctuary cities, etc. This article is a message from one of those groups to the others: "Keep holding out against him! We're working on him at this end, so we'll get him off your back soon! Don't give in!" That has to be reinforcing the opposition and making his job of breaking them harder.

Again, doesn't matter that much if he doesn't let it stop him, and maybe he can find ways to use it. It's annoying, though.

The God Emperor has to make heads roll and rubble bounce if he is going to get people in the executive branch to do his bidding and the bidding of the electorate.

Right now there is an attitude among many, at least in the organization I work for, that they can simply wait him out. That the "adults" will take charge again eventually and everything Trump is trying to do can be reversed, even it if causes "damage" in the meantime. Most of this is not high-level plotting. Most of it is simply an institutional reaction against policy from right of center. Certainly there were similar feelings about W. Bush but this is at a new level since most in State simply could not imagine the election of the God Emperor and are trying to pretend it hasn't happened.

Some sincerely believe that he will be impeached and someone less "crazy" and more pliable will take the reigns and it will be back to business as usual. The more astute realize we are into new territory here but for many it is scary territory and the usual institutional mechanisms used to get the newly elected leader to "play ball" are not as effective with the God Emperor.

State Dept. is going through restructuring and that has led to a hollowing out of the lower level of the upper echelons. There are still people at the top from before but there are a lot of people who came in and got positions under Obama who are gone and have not been replaced. One the one hand, that is good because it is flattening the organization and making the Seventh Floor more responsive. On the other hand, this is bad because the bureaucratic mechanisms are slowing down because Tillerson has to sign off on a bunch of stuff personally that was managed by lower levels before.

The real issue at State is the need to cut a lot of the programmatic fat which is happening but very slowly. Frankly, Tillerson seems to have softened on a lot of the cutting. There will still be some but not nearly to the level people at State feared and not nearly on the level which, in my opinion, is warranted.

Even if the cuts and restructuring are not as deep as I would like, they are at least happening, which is not something that would have taken place if HRC had been elected.

Still, the softening is due to getting to know the people in the organization and being absorbed by the worldview that festers at Foggy Bottom. It also explains why we are doing what we are doing in Afghanistan. If you have to be in Afghanistan the rules of engagement that Trump is proposing are certainly much better than his predecessor's and the calling out of Pakistan a necessary step to getting at the root of many of the problems that bedevil Afghanistan.

But the whole premise is one that should, in my humble opinion, have been rejected. That the entrenched bureaucrats have dragged Trump back to trying to untie the Gordian knot of Afghanistan instead of just cutting it does not bode well for other parts of his agenda and goes against his campaign promises. I am looking for 4D chess here but not seeing any. I hope I am wrong.

There are other things afoot at State that I like not at all which will seek to constrain the God Emperor further. I cannot talk about those now but efforts appear to be underway to tie the President's hands further on foreign policy, which is the realm where presidents actually have the most power and ability to get things done. If he can be stymied in foreign policy his domestic policy is likely to be suffering from even more serious constraint.

Just to agree, that is what it seems like with the Republicans in Congress. What would be really good and produce some progress would be for some of them to get rejected by the party and lose their seats.

As for Afghanistan it is the old deal that whoever pulls us out will get the blame for the failed effort. Very regrettable, but that is the system. Perhaps the United States is not well set up politically to run an empire, or the trappings of an empire that we get into with these foreign wars.

A difficulty with this kind of analysis is that even the best leaders have to be self serving or they don't survive even if they somehow manage to get to the tops slot.

Trump could devise a separate entity within the National Security Council structure, where the president has broad leeway to reorganize things, whose job is to go after "wreckers and looters" within the executive as a function of national security. Building on the authority Obama exercised to create "kill authorizations" of terrorists including U.S. citizens, Trump could go after those encumbering government positions who are are trying to stymie needed "national security" reforms. While not able to bring these people up on charges, Trump could use his handpicked loyalists to begin purging the ranks of senior leadership of people who are working to undermine him. They could be shown the door and leave him a free hand to bring in those who support his agenda. Such a solution has dystopian quality to it, but so does letting the bureaucracy prevent implementation of reforms.

i'm hoping he's holding the Hastert Hammer in reserve. CNN was losing their mind today over how Trump is "campaigning" against Mitch and Ryan.

what happens if Trump publicly asks the question, "Hey, Mitch, Paul? you guys really loved working with Dennis Hastert and reaching across the aisle to the Democrats. how many time did you join Dennis for a trip to Barney Frank's basement?"

Perhaps it would be both productive and interesting to prosecute the prior Senate for the Treason that was the Iran Deal. -- I'm sure that a lot would start happening if we did. For one, the proof is in the public record, almost as if the Senate were reading the definition of 'Treason' and using it as a checklist.

Furthermore, as their necks got more and more on the line, I'd be unsurprised to see/hear them try to implicate their corporate and globalists masters. (Because there's no way that they did it w/o banker and international-business involvement; I'd also be unsurprised to find the Clinton Foundation and its influence peddling involved... if so, we could expect to really widen the circles of Traitors for the next round of prosecution.)

"(I)f one day the enemies of the Jews succeed in killing off all the Jews, they will still have a need for “Jews” and they will find them under one name or another, within one resentful conspiracy theory or another, because their identities depend, at their very core, on having “Jews” to resent."



http://www.amnation.com/vfr/archives/017032.html

"...American WASPs have abdicated their leadership and have permitted liberal Jews to undermine historic American culture, (but) the notion that it is Jews who are destroying the historic West is preposterous. Last time I looked, the leading lights of Enlightenment rationalism were Descartes, Hobbes, Locke, Leibnitz, Hume, Voltaire, Diderot, Kant, Rousseau, Bentham, etc., who are not particularly Jewish in their orientation or ethnicity. The anti-religious strain of Enlightenment thought that flowered in the French revolution is not of Jewish origin, nor is revolutionary socialism. These have always had non-Jewish American and English proponents and sympathizers, as has Enlightenment anti-nationalism. Jews, if anything, are Johnny-come-latelies to Enlightenment irreligion, universalism, and Jacobinism.... I would recommend...the Voegelinian analysis of the West’s deviation from its orientation to the divine as a more cogent diagnosis of the West’s present state.

"...(L)iberalism would be the dominant ideology of American society even if no Jews had ever set foot on American soil. Liberalism is a response to industrialization and the creation of mass society, as is Communism, as is Naziism. Even in the early 20th century, it was recognized that liberalism had mutated from promoting liberty above all else to promoting 'harmony.' The WASP ProgressIves gave that trend a highly effective political expression. Even earlier, we can read in Jeffrey Hummel’s account of the aftermath of the Civil War how the Radical Republicans, when they took control of southern state governments, promoted social revolution and massive government spending, intervention, and debt, just like the Democrats of today. It is a gross distortion to put Jews at the center of it."

But why keep them around at all, where they can work on sabotaging your other advsiors and leak things like this that could demoralize your base?

I've been commenting less frequently the last few months because I took on a new job running a dysfunctional engineering team and I've been very busy.

It's one thing to talk about firing everyone, but it's another thing when the work has to keep getting done while you find better people. Obvious trouble-makers are easy enough to get rid of, but it takes time to replace the ones in the middle - not blatantly creating negative value and contributing at least some trickle of usefulness.

If I had a completely free hand to do what I wanted, I'd have cleaned house right at the start, but I have stakeholders who still need stuff to come out of my group. So I have to roll the team in a controlled manner.

Blaming the Jews for most big problems is not very smart. You won't gain followers that way easily.
To put it simply I hated Jews for several years, but changed.

Obviously for their small numbers they have more power the average guy, but its still not a majority of power. talking about the JQ is important but should be kept to inner circle, and let only the 120+ iq people talk about it in public as Kevin Mccdonald said.

The WASP and freemasonry often went together in US/UK. Some upper freemasons disliked Jews (Ford, Truman, Churchill, etc, etc). During the Freemasonic peak years 1930-1950s that exactly when America was also the most racialist so to speak. Again I used be the Catholic guy who went talking about Judeo-Freemasonry.

The American constitution (based on Andersons constitution) was Protestant Freemasonry. But you see what happened is they kept allowing various immigrant groups come in, and immigrants often become liberal. Nothing against the Irish, but they originally were voting liberal, then other groups too.
Heck I bet Arabs Muslims are voting Liberal when they come, while in their own country they wouldnt.

It wasnt Jews who pushed the French, Mexican, American, Italian, etc revolutions it was often aided by Freemasonry.

For the record Freemasonry in Anglo countries is neutral on religions
the Freemasonry in Latin and Continental Europe is quite anti Christian (particurly antiCatholic Church).

Today Freemasonry numbers have dropped in half. They were never a united group either. Mostly lodged based. And they too are losing power.

Jews joined Scottish Rite and Continental freemasonry and only then became more powerful. They have their own Bnai Brith.

Modern Liberalism (social liberalism, the bad kind) obviously has Marxist-Leninist principles mixed in, with neoliberalism/globalization on the economic end.

OT but important:  Andrew Anglin out-does the Supreme Dark Lord in at least one category of achievement:

Although explaining a joke kills the fun of it, I think at this point, this having become one of the most infamous jokes in history – and a joke which has in fact altered history – I can go ahead and explain it.

We have a culture of outrage. The direction of our society is determined by who can become the most offended, and make the most noise about how offended they are. I have a belief, which is supported by logic and data which I may present on this personal blog at a later date, that this outrage culture is not only ridiculous, but sociologically unsustainable.

The Daily Stormer is a Performance Art Project and the Andrew Anglin Who Writes for It is a Character I Have Invented

I am not a “Neo-Nazi White Supremacist.” In fact, I do not even know what that is. It has not ever been defined by the people who use it, despite repeated requests for a definition. I am also not a “hater,” nor do I know what that term means when it is used to refer to me. It would seem to be self-explanatory – “a person who is driven by the emotion of hate” – and yet I am not driven by hate, but rather by a genuine desire to see Western civilization continue into the future. One could even say that I am driven by love, if one wanted to get sappy about it.

Though we share the same name, the Andrew Anglin who appears on the site is not me but a character that I have created...

And he executes the coup de grace (emphasis added):

The real joke, like all of my best jokes, was not the post itself but the response that I knew it would provoke.

Certainly, I had no idea the joke would go this far. Right now, we are talking about a complete transformation of the tech industry. Some of the most powerful people in the world, as well as society at large, are considering the fact that these few mega-corporations are capable of unifying together in order to ban legal content from the internet, and beginning to draw the conclusion that this situation is incredibly dangerous.

I intended the article to be socially significant, and to prove a point. In fact, though it has brought hell down on me personally, the results were more than I ever could have hoped for. Right now, we are seeing the beginnings of a real conversation about the government regulating the domain registry system. Any move by the government to regulate tech would of course go further than that, and result in a much larger scale regulation of this industry which has become much, much too powerful to remain in private hands. Excluding the media and the mega-corporations themselves, no one on any side of the political spectrum likes the idea of a cabal of billionaires effectively being able to unilaterally control the direction of society.

Needless to say, I am extremely happy with the results of this particular piece of performance art.


The fallout from it shows that the ruling powers are extremely unhappy with the way things shook out. They miscalculated, they made me into a folk hero and a martyr, and they turned themselves into megalomaniac super-villains intent on using suppression of speech to direct the course of society.

It could not have came together more perfectly.

Vox owes Anglin an apology and a tip of the hat, for accomplishing what was necessary but he had no vision of how to do.

He could have them repaint the cells at Gitmo. He could have them read and summarize his hate mail. He has complete discretion over how they spend their time, even as they draw the same paycheck. Yes, he could even send their sorry hinnies to Syria, or Iraq, or Afghanistan to survey the locals.

The account of Edward P. Stafford, author of the article (and commander of the naval air unit involved), is unambiguous. Either he was lying, or his crewmen were lying, or they saw flying saucers.

Cmdr. Stafford served as technical advisor on the Pearl Harbor movie Tora, Tora, Tora. In the wikipedia article on WWII aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, he is cited multiple times in the footnotes, because his book The Big E is the definitive reference text on this ship.

You can go also to Amazon.com and see what readers have written about his works. One of them (Little Ship, Big War) can even be read for free at openlibrary.org.

Over a long and honorable career, there is no record of any conduct that would cast doubt on the excellent reputation this man earned. And except for the one incident, he had nothing to do with UFOs.

People are expecting too much of Trump. He's not going to win the culture war all on his own. He'll win some battles, and lose some too. The key thing is to start winning the overall war. We won the Cold War and then sat back and thought, "This is it, history is over!" The reality is the losers of the world who need socialism to parasite off of were only demoralized for a decade before they forgot the horrors of the Iron Curtain and got back to fighting for ten years before most of us even noticed our victory lap was over. That was the mistake, we took our foot off the accelerator.

I mean, the bloke has a momentous battle to fight. Restricting government is always harder than expanding it, and he's certainly not converged: he isn't actively pushing regulations further, even if he's letting some things dribble out like the strike on Syria or the expansion Afghanistan.

I'd give it until mid-way through Year 2, personally, to see what he actually achieves. Obama's big thing was the affordable care act, and that wasn't until 2010. My assumption is that Trump is gonna be spending the rest of this year and early into 2018 getting his ducks in a row.

If I'm right, then this kind of politics is a slow game. It doesn't show itself in signing bill after bill after executive order. It comes from carefully trying, giving people chances, making connections, understanding the battleground, and just... a lot of pre-wiring before you can finally make your gambit.

Still, I think the interesting thing is how much he isn't doing. I don't mean to give a bigotry of low expectations, but the fact that he's *not* advancing the cucking that Jeb or Rubio would've done, or the active destruction of Hillary, is pretty good in my book.

This is one article about part of the Swamp claiming it has had some influence on him, managing to stall some of his "crazy" ideas. Whether or not there's any truth to that, it's clearly an attempt to build a narrative that will give comfort to other Swamp creatures. Note that even they aren't claiming to have converged him, only to be partially deflecting him.

In the meantime, we have steady, regular action on immigration and sanctuary cities. Illegals are being deported, laws are being applied for the first time, and Wall construction, though delayed by various enemy tactics, may now start this fall ahead of schedule. We haven't gone to war on any new fronts like Syria or Iran, as the neocons desperately want. We're out of a couple of bad globalist trade pacts and NAFTA renegotiation is now underway. Gorsuch is still on the Court. Trump stood up for the "good people on the Right" (us), and didn't back down when everyone in the world demanded it. Pedophiles and child porn collectors are being rounded up at an astounding rate (which I think is one of the primary reasons for the Swamp's alarm).

Repeal of the ACA could come with stacking of judges in Federal Courts (replace the 9th) and even brought back to the Supreme Court. While they once found it legal, a case could be made on its fraudulence.

Muller's investigation is probably meant to go on - to show that they're wasting money on finding either nothing or "evidence" so spurious that people will laugh at them. It's also possibly another choke point to where leaks will go.

Haha - we are of one mind here! Sometimes I get discouraged at news, but you're right - the Left has entrenched themselves very well in an internal system of bureaucracies (public sector - schools, universities, government jobs; private - large subsidy companies, non-profits) that are externally hard to attack.

That's why I like either the cathedral image or, personally, trenches a la World War I. We can just storm head on because the system's are too immune to direct attack. But with work, the depth of defense can be destroyed.

The Cathedral's foundation is on sand - pour water on the sand. The trenches are fierce in front with lots of support. Get them to attack, then get their supply lines.

We are inevitable, as our Supreme Dark Lord says, for if nothing else, the enemy has no skills and no money. We have both.

All these Trump Deniers remind me of Moses and the Grumbling Israelites. They grumbled from the moment Moses began his leadership and dispared when their escape was blocked by the sea. They grumbled even after the sea miraculously parted allowing their escape and after recieving many other merciful miracles. The Trump Deniers can wander in the wilderness if they want but I am rejoycing now in the knowledge the God will part this sea of opposition for Trump and all who trust and believe with joy. My gratitude to all you young guys fighting this Forever War and pray that I will do my part when the time comes. You have my prayers until then.

You have to be willing to profess belief in a supreme being. It doesn't have to be God. Jesus is right out, beyond the pale, not really welcome.

I can't believe that Gary Cohn went out to the press and publicly chided the President for his remarks on Charlottesville. That is pretty damn low.

Also... what's with all the talk that the only reason the stock market is rising is because of Cohn? The argument is that if he leaves, the market would go into a tailspin because Cohn is a critical piece of getting Trump's economic platform put in place.

These guys have too much power; and the power is based on nepotism, etc.

According to Albert Pike, in Morals and Dogma, which is the handbook of Freemasonry:

"Lucifer, the Light-Bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!"

There are other references to Lucifer in Morals and Dogma. I suppose that passes for religious.

Is there any thread on this blog that can't be diverted to blaming the Jews?

The Raiders are looking good this year can anyone recommend some good whiskey did Jews invent Glocks?

If they weren’t there, they say, we would have a trade war with China, massive deportations, and a government shutdown to force construction of a Southern wall.

Sounds like what TRUMP was put in office for.

It's so easy to fall into negativism and despair when things don't go as we wish, and as fast as desired.

It is, which is a little strange. After all, we expected all this and worse. It's called the establishment, the Swamp, and the Deep State for a reason. We knew it would fight to preserve its power. We knew it had members or sympathizers within Trump's own circles. Opinions here varied on whether he could overcome them and get anything done. And that's without getting into the question of whether he meant what he said in the first place.

So we expected all this in a general sense, and yet it's easy to get discouraged when the things we expected happen in the specific sense. That's odd, but just part of human nature, I guess.

> Republican leadership, with a majority of seats in both houses, cannot repeal the Affordable Care Act

"Does not want to" is not the same as "cannot". And how exactly is this Trump's fault?

> What do you see in this pattern that says that the good guys are winning?

Is Hillary president yet?

> ...did Jews invent Glocks?

You know, I hadn't considered that one. Someone ask Nate.

Snidely, human nature is, for the most part, a fuck up. Couple that with a 100 years of modern, state controlled edumedication, and you can double that fuck up. The only social mood, is shiny stuff. Watch the next congress/senate elections for all those mini-me God-Emperors being elected.
