Something Wicked This Way Comes

I had a terrifying thought this morning, that I hope with all my heart never becomes anything more than a thought, but the more I think about it the more feasible and possible it becomes to me.

We all know that the Trump White House leaks like a colander, but I think that General Kelly will introduce measures to nip that in the bud, a few firings and a jail sentence or two could go a long way in curtailing that foolishness.

But where are the serious leaks, like transcripts of President Trump talking to foreign leaders coming from? This is tantamount to spying which translates into trafficking in classified documents and carries some stiff penalties, not to mention completely ruining the person or persons responsible for it.

Then I started wondering why anybody in government service would want to do such a thing and why.

Our first implication would be that person or persons are Trump haters and want to embarrass him and make his whole administration appear fumbling, incompetent and foolish.

Then a darker thought came to mind.

Who would have the power to reach deep into the bureaucracy to the personnel who have access and ability to a president’s private conversations? Rogue NSA or Secret Service? Ex-presidents who had the resources and the opportunity to leave operatives in place before he left the oval office?

Because the outing of Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders has a much grander design than fostering the appearances of fumbling incompetence, its intended to cause other foreign leaders to be afraid of having conversations with Trump, thereby seriously crippling his ability to conduct foreign policy and bring about impotency.

A dangerous cabal of political and financial power is now in place, well-manned, well-financed, motivated by their mutual hate of the change Donald Trump represents, the return of manufacturing to America, sensible immigration policies, anti-climate change, anti-Obamacare and anti-just-about-everything the elite super rich movers and shakers of this planet can use to keep the working class under their thumb.

Donald Trump represents nationalism, they represent globalism, Donald Trump represents America First, they represent the farce that America is a bad place and needs to take its place with the socialistic failures of the world. Trump sees the global warming movement for the scam it is which takes away a major scare tactic and fundraising gimmick.

These people have the media in their pocket, the ability to scare milquetoast republicans into line and a rubber stamp democrat party to do their bidding and they’re not playing, they’re dead serious about destroying Donald Trump and evidently don’t care how much damage their treachery will do to the nation.

Their plans for packing the Supreme Court were interrupted, many more designated by executive order, the same way they were put in place, the stock market is up, unemployment down, consumer confidence high and in spite of Trump’s dismal approval ratings and non-stop media bashing that would have demoralized and crippled a less confident man, he keeps on keeping on, much to the dismay of the coup minded international underground that has spent millions to derail his train.

The democrats are not, even now, willing to admit that, in spite of Trump’s rashness and proclivity toward overkill, the reason they lost is because of their arrogance and how far out of touch they really are with middle America.

Bill Clinton was a likeable candidate with excellent communication skills, he came up in an environment that equipped him with the ability to talk to the people in flyover country, because he was one of them, and the consummate politician, people liked him, even after he lied to their face and degraded the presidency with his shenanigans.

Hillary is the antithesis of her husband, she comes off as vindictive, cold and distant, untrustworthy with little sense of humor, with no entry into the world of the working-class American, her condescension was there for all to see, and even when she spoke about issues they really cared about, it was couched in the vernacular and demeanor of a college professor rather than someone who could really “feel their pain”.

When you take Hillary’s complete removal from the common folks, combine it with the dire prophecies of a dour-faced Chuck Schumer, the nonsensical philippics of Nancy Pelosi and the inane ravings of Maxine Waters, how much hope and light can you expect?

The Democrats could have fielded a much better candidate, but when you’re blinded by the glitz and glamour of Hollywood crowd, have a war chest that would rival the fiscal budget of some small countries and the attitude that the people in the rust belt don’t count anymore, you just depend on the bicoastal theory and get the balloons ready to pop.

What a big, colossal, stupendous, gigantic, humiliating disappointment, and the powers that be ain’t gonna take it sitting down.

Organize, finance, alert the media and the semi covert operatives in the bureaucracies, just keep throwing so much manure on the White House lawn every day that nobody has time to do anything but shovel it.

And that’s where we are in these United States of America, with an underground coup in the works, obstinacy in the legislative branch and the focal point of the daily news offerings not about a stock market at an all-time high, the return of jobs, the ebb of illegal aliens, the fact that for the first time, the federal government is actually doing something for the people who are forced to live in neighborhoods ruled by violent gangs, but the latest innuendo, rumor or outright lie about the “Great Russian Intrusion.”

Remember one thing, when a bomb is set off in a garbage dump, or a swamp, the slop blows both ways.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

You are right on Charlie there is an undercurrent in our government and its so dangerous. Trump stands for America and is a patriot and the left is globalism all the way and wants to take us down. The Lord God will protect Donald Trump and America. Prayer is powerful. Praise the Lord!!!

Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie, make no mistake my friends, Barrack Hussein Obama is holed up in Washington for this very reason, he plans on finishing off the America that you and I love. The America that countless people through 250 years have laid down their lives to defend. The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. The penalty for the treasonous acts should be the death penalty. No one has expanded government, like mac daddy Obama and they are so consumed and self imploded that they cannot even think of their children's future. nuff said God Bless Plowboy

Mr. Daniels, I am mesmerized and blessed for knowing you and by reading of your insight into the intricate details of The wickedness and our self centeredness of our politicians. Truly integrity and patriotism seems to be two goals left behind or sold out to the highest bidder which breaks my heart. Thank you for making your voice heard through your writings. Thank you for your patriotism, dedication and commitment to our nation and our liberties. It is truly an honor reading your posts and following you. Keep on keeping on.

Here's an idea Charlie Beware of socialism we cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism but we can assist elected leaders in giving small doses of socialism until we sunddenly awake to Communism U cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong u cannot help small men by tearing down big men u cannot help the poor by destroying the Rich u cannot lift the wage earners by pulling down the wage payer u cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than u Make.if the nail factory closes wat good is the hammer factory.chad Reavis theory.

Funny but I recall Trump and his buddies grinning and patting themselves on the back when e-mails from the Democratic National Committee were leaked. I remember Trump saying he LOVED Wikileaks. I even remember him coming on TV and begging Russia to hack into the State Department computers and leak even more e-mails. I guess you all forgot that.

Undermining President Trump
Charlie, here is an article I just saw this morning, before reading your post about undermining President Trump. It is a dark and far-reaching effort for sure!
Posted by Cheryl
Out of touch with the people. You have to be refering to everyone in D.C. And the GOP who have been choking the life out working people for the last thirty five years. The ones who pulled the biggest gerrymandering voting coup in history in 2010 in your home state.

I don't trust politicians as far as I can throw them
I don't trust politicians as far as I can throw them and the only politician that I can throw least far than a Republican is a damned Democrat

God, Charlie Daniels, and Donald Trump
Mr. Daniels you are right on! I have enjoyed you music and concerts my entire life, but I do wish you were in our White House with President Trump! I do believe God would heal our country with the three of you running it. Thank you and have a blessed day.

God Bless You, Charlie. I don't think I have read a commentary on the current reality of this country that expresses it any more succinctly. Raise high be banner. You are a very special person.

Charlie, I could not agree with you more. It is so sad that more people can't see things for what they are. President Trump us trying so hard to make AMERICA great again. There should be term limits for all offices and positions. With no special retirement or medical care after retirement. Hollywood should have no bearing on how our government is run. I pray that God will be with us always. Thank you for your thoughts, wisdom and prayers.

Vote 'em out!
Well said, Mr. Daniels. President Trump has near zero support from anyone in D.C. 'good ole boys' club. The media, Democrats and even Republicans are fighting his every move. At the 2018 primary, I will vote for the clown that scoops horse manure in the town parade before I'll vote for anyone currently serving. They have all shown their true colors. Perhaps we, the people, can help drain the vote at a time. Your soapbox is inspiring, Mr. Daniels. Thank you, Deanna

525/5000 Hello Charlie, I am a 56 years old German and I love your music and I like America for its people and their vision that everyone can achieve their goal. But I think you see Trump wrong. Trump has no decency. He does not represent the virtues that make America great and that we have always admired. He is not upright and honest. He makes fun of the weak and he rips the people who believe in him. I hope you get back a president you deserve. Best wolfgang
