Rudy versus Mueller: Round Two

(Round One here)

The Deep State needs to win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in November.  Hence, we see all these scandals in Washington with the “Russian dossier”; with the porn star; and, oddly enough, with the case of the Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein.

The exclusion of Harvey Weinstein and the director Roman Polanski from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences forty years after the rape of a minor girl and the porn actress are the elements of Plan B of the Deep State because Plan A – the “Russian dossier” – did not work.

Everybody knows the tactic of sacrifice in chess.  It is when a chess player puts a piece under attack and loses it, and in doing so, the situation on the chessboard improves in his favor.

Harvey Weinstein is an entirely unremarkable piece in terms of Hollywood mores.  Hollywood just continues the tradition, which originated from ancient Greece, where the first modern theater was created.  Since then, in every theater and every film studio, there is a so-called “role assignment sofa.”  This site is political, so we will not dwell on the moral side of this matter.  It is essential to notice that these couches have existed for about three thousand years, and to this day, no one has ever bothered to talk about them.

I can assure you that if Hillary Clinton had won the presidential election, these couches would continue to function as before.  Harvey would continue to be one of the most respected gods on the Hollywood Olympus.  The flow of young women from all over the world ready on demand to undress on these Hollywood sofas would not diminish.

But Trump won the election, so the Deep State decided to launch a women-related scandal in addition to the “Russian business.”  The fact is that, apart from the “role assignment sofas,” there is another purely female industry in the world.  It is the industry of extorting money from wealthy and powerful men.  Historically, this industry is much older than the sofas and flourishes in America.

Every American billionaire knows perfectly well that as soon as he gets on Forbes’s list, a target is drawn on his forehead.  This billionaire must hire a lot of lawyers to continually fight off numerous women, a vast majority of whom he does not even know.

If the threat to the billionaire comes from a lady with whom there was no sex, the amount to be paid is about 100,000 dollars.  It’s like a tax on air.  If you want to live, you pay.  After all, in America, it’s easier to pay $100,000 than to spend many millions on a lawsuit.  It will be costly and last for years, and it can severely damage your reputation even if you are innocent.

If the threat comes from a lady with whom you had sex, the amount of the payment depends on whether she has witnesses or not.  This comes at a higher cost – the second level of extortion.  Typically, in such cases, you pay about ten times more than in the previous example – a million dollars or more.

Finally, on the third level, if the threat comes from a lady with whom a child was born, the amount is increased ten times more.  It’s about tens of millions of dollars.  It is on these sums that the predatory female industry on American billionaires is based.

Let’s get back to Trump.  A lot of women tried to squeeze money out of him, and some succeeded.  But it was only after Trump’s victory that the Deep State began to create the background to make Trump look unattractive.  They found it essential to sacrifice Harvey Weinstein, one of the leading donors of the Democratic Party, to create a winning political situation for themselves in retrospect.

But Trump’s political opponents failed to find women who belonged to the second or third category described above.  They had to work with the material they had – extortion of money by a porn star.  The amount she received positions her to the lowest category of extortionists – she got only 130,000 dollars.  This lady is well aware of the prices paid for cases at her level (that is, for no sex) and gladly accepted the standard offer.

Now the fate of the U.S. Democratic Party is in the hands of a porn actress.

That’s what the Democratic Party has come to.  Future historians, flipping through contemporary newspapers, will be puzzled.  A movement toward peace on the Korean peninsula (which has been at war since 1950), the 17-year low unemployment rate at 3.9% (rare in post-war America), the president’s rating of 51%, the defeat of the Islamic caliphate, and radical tax cuts were all pushed from the front pages.  And the only thing America was interested in was the technical details of money transferred to a porn actress, an extortionist.

As a man who spent almost two decades on television, Trump understands the benefits of the Stormy Daniels scandal.  The porn star with large breasts looks much better on the TV screen than the election platform of the Democrats.  With the help of a half-naked stripper, CNN squeezed out of the TV all political opponents of Trump – both Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans.  In the newscasts, there is simply no time to convey the platform of Democratic party ideas to the voters.  The political opposition found itself in an information vacuum, and this is precisely where Trump needs them to be.  Here is the question of self-examination: quickly, name the first three points of the Democrats’ electoral platform of 2018 if you can.

The situation of the 2018 election year inadvertently repeats the situation of the 2016 election year, when the airwaves were filled by only Trump.  According to various estimates, in 2016, the TV channels provided Trump with airtime worth more than a billion dollars for free.

Rudy Giuliani, in a recent television interview with Sean Hannity, confirmed what was clear from the very beginning.  Only the naïve could assume that Trump’s personal lawyer Cohen paid his own money to the extortionist.  Of course, Trump reimbursed him for these expenses.  And of course, Rudy’s interview was agreed upon by Trump.

There is every reason to believe that the Democrats have not learned from the lessons of history.  Most accusations of consensual sex by a political leader with a pretty young woman only tend to increase his ratings, whether it is proven or not.

Also, Trump successfully used their own weapons against the leftist opposition.  The division of society into classes remained practically unnoticed by America.  But the victimization of some segments of society is not concealed.  Now, after decades of massive leftist propaganda, the so-called “victims of the system” (these include women, the non-white population of the country, gays and lesbians, and many others) evoke sympathy for the electorate.

In the case of a stripper, Trump skillfully positioned himself as a “victim of the system” (most likely not without reason).  Thanks to the Democrats, the electorate is well prepared for the fact that the “victims of the system” are worthy people and deserve at least sympathy.  This also increases Trump’s ratings.

It was with the arrival of Rudy Giuliani on Trump’s team that the dynamics of confrontation with both Plan A and Plan B of the Deep State have changed.  It seems that Rudy Giuliani masterfully dealt with the opposition, which has driven herself into a corner.

Rudy versus Mueller: Round One

I have great respect for the Deep State.  All of its members are professionals in their field.  Wherever you look, everywhere and everything is well thought out, down to the smallest detail.

So why do they lose?  Let’s recall the main points.

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein writes a memorandum to President Trump, in which he proves the necessity of dismissing FBI director Comey for numerous violations of the law.  Trump fires Comey, and Rosenstein immediately appoints a special prosecutor, Mueller (friend and Comey and Rosenstein), to investigate whether Comey’s dismissal was a violation of law by Trump in the form of obstruction of justice.

At the same time, the so-called “Russian dossier” and the alleged criminal conspiracy between Trump and Putin are not Mueller’s primary goal.  All this noise about collusion with the Russians is just a smokescreen created by the Deep State.

There is ample evidence that Mueller disregards investigating Trump’s collusion with the Kremlin.  This was confirmed by Comey himself in his recently published book.  He mentions that Trump personally asked him, as FBI director, to investigate the “Russian dossier” at least three times and to find out who exactly created these fakes.  Comey already knew then that Hillary Clinton was behind the “Russian dossier,” but he said nothing to Trump about this and did not comply with his request.

Recently, new evidence emerged in the case of Paul Manafort.  Mueller’s team admitted that his investigation found no incriminating evidence of contacts by Manafort with any Russians.  And all press reports over the past two years about such contacts are fictional and based on “anonymous sources.”

The questions Mueller’s team would like to ask Trump, which were leaked to the media, stand as proof as well.  Mostly, these questions concern the firing of Comey and not Trump’s collusion with the Russians.  Also, many of the questions are merely ridiculous, such as “What did you think about the recusal of Attorney General Sessions?” and “How did you come up with the idea of dismissing Comey?”  Should these irrelevant questions be worthy of a special prosecutor in the case of an alleged international criminal conspiracy?  The prosecutor should be interested in what the person did, not what he thought.

In the “Russian case,” the prosecutor’s questions should be of this type: “Which encryption method was used to communicate with the Russians?” and “Why weren’t the encryption keys changed immediately after the election rather than a month later?” and “What was the frequency of the backup communication channel with the Russians?”  These are the kind of necessary questions we would expect of figurants of the investigation.  But Mueller’s team is void of such questioning.  It suggests that the leakage of these questions was sanctioned by Rudy Giuliani, a new player in Trump’s legal team.  The publication of these ridiculous questions is his first punch.

Why did Rudy do this?  Because Rudy is not only a lawyer but also a politician, a former mayor of New York.

Rudy Giuliani correctly understands that the primary goal of Mueller is not jurisprudence, but politics.  Therefore, the methods of countering Mueller should not be as much legal as they are political.

Elections in November 2018 serve as the main goal of Mueller.  After all, this is the only chance for the Deep State to dump Trump by legal means.  Its members do not hide this – all twenty prosecutors of Mueller’s team are registered members of the Democratic (read: socialist) Party of the USA, with at least twelve of them having donated to various socialist candidates, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Why did Mueller decide to bring charges against Manafort, even though they have nothing to do with Russia?  For the same reason Scooter Libby suffered.  They accused General Flynn and Trump’s personal lawyer, Cohen, in a similar fashion.  It’s standard prosecutorial practice to indict a subordinate and thereby force him to testify against his boss in exchange for a lighter punishment or even for closing the case.

It works against the mafia, but it did not work against Libby.  He had nothing to say about his boss, Vice President Cheney, and in retaliation, his reputation was utterly destroyed (he had to wait for fifteen years until Trump pardoned him).  The parallels of the “Russian case” with the Libby case are unambiguous here.

The special prosecutor, Fitzgerald, knew that it was not Libby, but deputy secretary of state Richard Armitage who had revealed the name of the CIA agent, Valerie Plame.  But the prosecutor decided to use Libby to get Cheney and, together with him, President Bush.

The special prosecutor, Mueller, and his team know that the “Russian dossier” was concocted by Hillary Clinton’s order, but they decided to use Manafort, Flynn, and all the others they could get on hand to get President Trump.

So far, it did not work against Manafort.  But the Deep State is not slumbering, and now Manafort is forced to fight two lawsuits against him simultaneously.  It did not work against Flynn, and he – quite predictably – is on the verge of bankruptcy now because of the multi-million-dollar legal expenses.  There is every reason to believe that this approach will not work against Cohen (which means that tough times await him).

It should be noted that both Mueller and Giuliani are highly skilled political operators, and, strangely enough, both are interested in closing Mueller’s investigation a few months before the November elections, although for different reasons.  Rudy made it clear to Mueller that perhaps Mueller would be allowed to leave the game untainted.  For Mueller, such support is essential, since he has been under constant political pressure from the Republicans and the Democrats for more than a year now.

The Democrats are already tired of waiting.  When will Mueller finally do what he was instructed to do by the Deep State?  Every month of the delay will bite them in November because the Democratic electorate will not have enough enthusiasm to come to the polls.  Indeed, it is impossible to keep people in suspense for two whole years without giving anything.  But Mueller-politician cannot afford to continue working against the president, whose favorable rating already exceeds 50%.  Most likely, Mueller-prosecutor will turn down his investigation shortly – just political business, nothing personal.

Mueller’s attack on subordinates of Trump is a sign of weakness.  It is a sign that prosecutors have nothing against Trump.

Rudy was one of the first to understand that offense is the best defense in this kind of situation, especially six months before the election.
