Trump is fighting a secret war that none of us can even fathom

To say that President Trump’s first year or so in office was a contentious one would be understating the issue to the point of absurdity.  Trump is fighting a secret war that none of us can even fathom.

Within the White House, the “resistance” has found footholds.  An unprecedented number of high level leaks have been streaming from the hallways of the West Wing, flowing and ebbing in and out of the Deep State Washington Swamp.  Snakes abound, but the insects are even more venomous.  And, it seems to hold true that every few weeks you’ll sniff out another nest.

That seems to be the case in Capitol Hill today, as the President’s rocky relationship with Jeff Sessions continues to sour.

President Donald Trump again expressed his frustration with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Twitter Wednesday, citing remarks from Rep. Trey Gowdy on Fox News.

Gowdy said that he understood why Trump was frustrated with Sessions, because the Alabama Senator should have explained to the president that he would recuse himself from the Russia investigation before taking the job.

“There are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else,” Gowdy concluded.

“And I wish I did!” Trump added on Twitter.

Trump frustration with Sessions has mounted in recent days, particularly after learning that Sessions was a key witness for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of charges against the president for obstruction.

Now, I’m no fan of Jeff Sessions based simply on his unwillingness to investigate more modern tactics to fight the war on drugs.  Sessions is a hardline, lock ’em up for a long time, kind of legislator…and that goes all the way down to misdemeanor marijuana offenses.  There’s no great America where this is still the modus operandi of the Department of Justice.

While the liberal left is trying to spin this beef between the AG and POTUS as yet another sign of an underlying tumult at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, we could be finding ourselves a backdoor into a more modern conservative heading up the DOJ – something that this liberty lover right here would approve of wholeheartedly.

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

Published

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…

Former White House Doc Says Biden’s Mental Health Will Force Him Out of Office

And he did not mince his words.

Published

As soon as Joe Biden found himself on the path to the presidency, the murmurs about his mental health began. Biden has always been a gaffe-machine, providing our nation with a ridiculous number of bizarre and unfortunate statements throughout the years.  But, in 2021, it appears that Biden’s issues are no longer funny or jovial, with many suggesting that his mental health is in a serious decline. This includes a former White House physician, who painted a terrifying picture of where all of this could be headed.  Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX), formerly the White House physician, said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that he believes President Joe Biden will be forced to resign or be removed with the 25th Amendment. And Jackson didn’t pull any punches. “I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what? We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now. And I’m at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?” Jackson added, “Where are the people in our academic medicine that were out there calling for President Trump to have a cognitive test? Where are these people? There’s something seriously going on with this man right now. And you know, I think that he’s either gonna, he’s either gonna resign, they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now. There’s some serious stuff going on right now.” Jackson’s underestimation of political biases aside, he’s certainly not the only one wondering just how fit Biden’s mental…
