The establishment loves Pence, and if anything happens to Trump, they know Pence is waiting in the wings and willing to do their bidding…
Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable, than loyalty. — Cicero
The men whom the people ought to choose to represent them are too busy to take the jobs. But the politician is waiting for it. He’s the pestilence of modern times. What we should try to do is make politics as local as possible. Keep the politicians near enough to kick them. The villagers who met under the village tree could also hang their politicians to the tree. It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged. — G. K. Chesterton
Loyalty is a noble trait and one that is coveted by leaders, but our 45th President has not seen many faithful and devoted Republicans, either in Congress or in his administration. The establishment sewer rats are doing everything they can to stop our President from destroying their globalist goals.
Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, Mike Dubke, Michael Short, Preet Bharara, James Comey, and Sally Yates are gone. Several were known leakers and others were Obama holdovers. There are many people in our President’s administration, even close advisors who I highly doubt are loyal to our 45th President.
Others who were very loyal to our President and his policies who are no longer in the administration, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and his entire NSC staff are gone, along with Steve Bannon, and now Sebastian Gorka. Monica Crowley was torpedoed before she even made it into the administration.
And yet, we still have leaks.
Pence Would Have Lost Governorship
Instead he was chosen as Trump’s Vice President. Pence spent 12 years in Congress and he is an establishment insider. Trump obviously thought Pence could help him with legislation in Congress, but it appears there has been no real help from the VP.
My longtime friend and Trump Supporter, Suzy Chilberg, leader of a huge tea party in Northern Indiana, wrote that Pence could have lost reelection as Indiana’s Governor. Here’s what she said…
Even his political action committee’s name gives off a crusader vibe: Principles Exalt a Nation. As Kelleigh and I have often talked, the GOP power-mongering “controllers” pushed Pence on Trump. Pence was likely to lose the governorship of Indiana. I live in Indiana. I am a precinct committee person. I know.
Indy was not going to be able to save his sorry self. He had pissed off so many of the electorate because of his political dances about Common Core (CC) and other things, that people were really upset with him. Indiana is still under CC because more than anything, Pence was greedy for federal funds.
He is also responsible for leading Indiana into the medical mess Obamacare set up. He always sells the thing (whatever it is) with his “Christian” droning voice, but since he went to DC as a congressman this man has been centered on DC $$. It made sense he’d be chosen by the Elitists to “guide” this president who is way too trusting of this “God fearing Christian.”
Thus, Indiana was set to go blue when Pence lost the governorship. Not in the legislature, but in a candidate for governor who had lost umpteen other attempts. So, they had to move Pence to get Holcomb on the ticket and keep IN in the red zone. Keeps our votes in red, don’t you know.
I have always felt deep down that the real leaks are from Pence. He has been so helpful to our man at the helm, yeah sure…like the snake lying next to its owner while measuring her for its next meal.
Suzy is right, in Indiana, Pence presided over the withdrawal from Common Core, yet he quickly turned this triumph into a charade. Instead of returning to Indiana’s superb pre–Common Core standards, Pence stacked the replacement committees to ensure the return of Common Core. Indiana’s new standards are nothing but a slightly mangled and rebranded version of what they supposedly replace.
Common Core opponents are deeply disappointed by this outcome. The Indiana mothers who ignited the national rebellion against Common Core are wondering why Governor Pence betrayed their trust.
So, Pence took credit for repealing Common Core in Indiana when in fact he merely replaced it with a rebranded version of the same standards — actually, standards that might be even worse. Link
Pence Is Chosen
Let’s go back to the day Pence was chosen as Trump’s running mate, and to the early campaign. The VP choice was promoted by Ivanka, and was a choice obviously made to garner Pence’s friends in the House into aiding Mr. Trump’s agenda.
- Governor Pence pulled his name from the governor’s race in Indiana before Trump had a chance to announce him, resulting in the Indianapolis Star catching wind of it and announcing his nomination before the President.
- When Trump’s recorded and edited locker room chat with none other than Billy Bush came out, Pence stated his disapproval as though Pence was so pure that he had never uttered trash talk, and he hid away. The media wanted Trump to drop out and Pence to take the lead.
Pence could have said something like, “What would the country rather have, a man who engages in common locker room talk, or a woman who is a traitor to her country?”
- Pence’s endorsement of Paul Ryan, John McCain, Kelly Ayotte, and other leftist Republicans was done prior to Trump’s forced endorsements.
Lacking Principles or Pure Hypocrisy?
Can we call Pence a hypocrite? Truly, if he had any principles, he wouldn’t have even accepted the nomination of VP, because he couldn’t be a part of our President’s campaign promises in good conscience. His congressional voting record is the opposite of our President’s policies.
The former Governor has close ties to the party establishment, and so does his lawyer. Note that James Comey worked for McGuire Woods law firm from 1993-1996, and Pence’s office confirmed that he retained Richard Cullen, chairman of McGuire Woods LLP, to assist him in responding to inquiries by special counsel Robert Mueller. Cullen and Comey used to work together at McGuire Woods, and Richard Cullen is the Godfather to one of Comey’s daughters.
Recently, Mike Pence joined with Ivanka and Jared and cheered Trump for not undoing Obama’s LBGT Executive Order for Christian evangelicals. Many are upset with this stance, and even more upset that Pence, who claims to be a fundamentalist Christian would go along with it. Link Christians are accusing Pence of hypocrisy since he has flip-flopped on this issue.
Also recall that Trump’s two top establishment globalists, Pence and Priebus supported getting rid of Flynn after they alleged he misled his colleagues about conversations with the Russian ambassador. The willingness to throw Flynn under the bus was a great loss of the man who well knows counterterrorism strategy. He spent more than 33 years in Army intelligence.
Establishment Lauds Pence
Members of the Republican establishment have lauded Pence for his experience and his solid credentials. He endorsed Dominionist Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican primaries, and has been praised by Paul Ryan, who has described him a “personal friend” and a “movement conservative.” What does that mean?
- Pence’s votes while in Congress were not good and he only received a 62% freedom index, the same as John McCain’s. Link
- Pence stated, “Trade means jobs but trade also means security. The time has come for all of us to urge the swift adoption of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.” Link
- “Calls to ban Muslims from entering the US are offensive and unconstitutional.” Link
- Pence strongly denounced Trump’s proposal to close the US borders to Muslim refugees. Link
And why shouldn’t the establishment laud him? After Christie left the administration because of Bridgegate, Pence was put in charge of the transition team, so is that why all the choices are from globalist insiders?
Is Pence Trump’s Achilles Heel?
With all due respect, when I look at our Vice President, I see a man with core ambitions that would betray Trump to get there. When President Trump speaks, there is a sincerity, but when Pence speaks it seems artificial, not from the heart. He’s playing a part, and he’s dangerous.
Pence has been in office for 16 years, first as a member of Congress and from 2013 as Indiana’s governor. He is an establishment globalist Republican and belongs more in the camp of Ryan, McCain and McConnell than in Mark Meadow’s and Jim Jordan’s Freedom Caucus who believe in limited government, the Constitution, the rule of law, (Lex Rex) and policies that promote the liberty, safety and prosperity of all Americans. One look at how Pence voted for 12 years in Congress has convinced me he’s no “Christian conservative.”
Pence Plans for Presidency
Circa News reported that Vice President Mike Pence filed to create a new political action committee called the Great America Committee, ahead of the 2018 and 2020 elections. This is the first time a sitting Vice President has filed to create a separate political PAC. Allegedly it is done to cover the costs of his support for Republican GOP members in both the 2018 and 2020 elections. The new PAC will accept individual donations up to $5K.
Pence is holding private dinners with big donors and corporate interests at his DC home. Link Despite his protestations to the contrary, the vice president looks to be preparing for his own political future. Is he betting everything will come crashing down on Trump and he can take over? Link
A spokesman confirmed the existence of the new committee and said it is being overseen by Marty Obst and Nick Ayers, two former Pence campaign aides and close confidants of the vice president.
Social media is a twitter with suspicions that Pence may have his own political goals. However, those close to him state that he is simply gearing up for coming elections of fellow GOPers. I don’t buy it.
The establishment loves Pence, and if anything happens to Trump, they know Pence is waiting in the wings and will easily accept orders from the movers and shakers of DC.
As much as Pence may deny it, the evidence is mounting that he is indeed laying the groundwork for rescuing his own political career from the ashes of Trump’s. As Politico’s Eliana Johnson reports, Pence’s recent hire of top campaign hand Nick Ayers as his chief of staff is “less about a secret campaign to challenge Trump in 2020” and more about ensuring that Pence can “preserve his future political options, whatever they may be.”
Pence is also closely aligned with the Trump hating Koch brothers, and he stated in 2014, that he was “grateful,” for David Koch. He has longstanding ties to the Koch brothers’ political network, which was a strong supporter of his governorship but stayed on the sidelines of the 2016 election due to widespread opposition among donors to Trump’s candidacy. Short, who adorns his office with Pence paraphernalia, is a former president of the group that oversees the Koch brothers’ political activism. The Koch’s hate Trump, but will go all out for Pence. Pence held an unscheduled visit with GOP mega-donor Charles Koch in Colorado last June, ahead of the Koch brothers’ network donor meeting.
Pence has kept a certain distance from the Trump White House in past months, staying above the chaos of the latest Russia controversies, especially those concerning Trump’s son, Donald Jr. who met with a Russian lawyer who said she had information on Hillary Clinton. Pence’s aides were quick to emphasize that the vice president had not even joined the campaign at the time of Trump Jr. meeting. Everybody is forgetting that Clinton allies did the same thing as Don Jr.
Leaks to Take Down Trump
Is Mike Pence the Deep State that Trump fears and hates? A well-known commentator has said, “I have read a bunch of articles saying the ultimate source of Trump’s leaks are Pence himself, who is acting more like an enemy combatant than a devoted VP.”
Pence wants to be President, it’s written all over him, and anyone who falls for his phony perfect Christian persona isn’t looking deeply into the man. Axios reported in July: “Most elected Republicans in town would privately prefer a President Pence. When push comes to shove, they may not protect Trump. Indeed, their natural impulse will be to throw him overboard.”
Pence is salivating at the notion that the Democrats, or some nefarious set of people, will remove Donald Trump from office through invoking the 25th Amendment’s disability clause. The Democrats allege that Trump is mentally ill and this will be their justification. Assassination remains a possibility that is widely promoted by the left.
Pence’s true colors are surfacing, he is a globalist and a selfish opportunist. Why does the VP need his own PAC? Pence is becoming a major liability to Trump. He is actively plotting to replace Trump in 2020 because, presumably, someone from the Deep State has indicated a change is coming.
What about Obama following in Trump’s footsteps when it comes to Trump’s contact with world leaders? He’s a private citizen now and should be charged with violating the Logan Act. Just what is he telling these leaders? Is he saying that Trump won’t be around long so ignore him?
Steve Maraboli’s quote perfectly fits our VP. “You can speak with spiritual eloquence, pray in public, and maintain a holy appearance…but it is your behavior that will reveal your true character.”
The fate of our country is in the balance. The left and the right have the same agenda, both have been part of the Deep State for a long, long time. Pence is waiting in the wings and chomping at the bit to be the next President no matter how it happens.
Whatever Donald Trump brings us, it’s far better than what the globalist Deep State has planned.
