The Swamp

Gary Cohn Has Been Defeated, Will Resign From White House

Published

on

President Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn is resigning from the White House.

Cohn led the way in purging Trump’s nationalist advisers from the White House, including Steve Bannon, in order to promote the kinds of establishmentarian policies that benefit firms like Goldman Sachs, where he previously served as No. 2. Cohn and his pal Dina Powell were brought in by Jared Kushner.

Cohn was outplayed and completely shot down in the battle over tariffs, with President Trump dismissing his opinion. As Trump loses more and more of his own close confidantes in the White House, he is showing less and less willingness to play nice with people who clearly don’t agree with him and who don’t really support him.

Is it possible for Trump to start making some more Trumpian hires now, or will the administration continue to employ NeverTrumpers and moderate Democrats who don’t support anything he stands for?

Big League Politics famously reported on Cohn’s Huffington Post editor daughter’s anti-Trump tweets, which she deleted.

I wrote a broadside against Gary Cohn for The American Spectator back in April, which was quoted by The New York Times. I present it below:

Dear Mr. President,

As a supporter of yours since Day One, I feel the need to write to you. Stay true to populist nationalism, sir. I know you believe in it. It carried you over the goal line in the Midwest to victory.

If you stick with it, you can be a once-in-a-lifetime transformational political figure that unifies the Right and Left and saves America. If you don’t stick with it, you will lose your way. You MUST not appoint Gary Cohn to be White House chief of staff.

Your son-in-law Jared seems like a nice guy, but he is wrong about his friend Gary Cohn, the Goldman Sachs guy. I do not support Gary Cohn  in any way, shape, or form. Nobody on either side of the aisle wants Gary Cohn to be your chief of staff.

Most people are intimidated by you and won’t tell you to downgrade Jared’s role or to end the honeymoon with Cohn, because one of those guys is your son-in-law and the other is your economic adviser. That’s all well and good, but at a certain point someone needs to appeal to you not as a political careerist but as a plain old American: Jared is seizing a ton of power in the White House, and I don’t think he cares about the populist issues that carried you to victory. Use him on China, use him on the Middle East, fine. But he doesn’t need to run everything, and he shouldn’t. He’s your son-in-law.

I generally support Steve Bannon — as I worked for him at Breitbart — but this isn’t really about Steve, and he didn’t tell me to write this. This is about populist nationalism and about protecting people on the bottom and in the working classes. Steve happens to be the torchbearer of that movement. It is a movement that would not accept Gary Cohn as your chief of staff.

The Bernie people are disillusioned with the Democratic Party. There is going to be a mass exodus from that party. It’s happening right now, and it’s going to increase throughout this year. You stand to be the beneficiary of that exodus. That is, if you stick to populism. Populism is the ticket to break down the two-party system and unify people on both sides behind you, thus assuring your re-election. If you stick to it.

I know you’re miffed at your staff because you think the Obamacare repeal-and-replace failure was a big disappointment for you, but it wasn’t. Nobody liked that bill. No conservatives liked that bill. Everyone hated it, actually. It was the same thing as Obamacare but actually kind of worse in some ways. Rush Limbaugh told people on the air to rise up against you. That’s not good, Mr. President. You would have lost about a third of your supporters overnight. As a Trump supporter, I’m glad that bill failed. Convene some more meetings with Rand, come up with something better, and you’ll bounce back. Your approval rating went down during that period, because you were supporting a bad bill. That’s why it went down.

The opportunity is there for you to take advantage of populism. Breitbart pretty much let down Steve, by becoming really boring after the election and not providing air cover for the administration. But the rest of conservative media is KILLING it right now, and they love the populist nationalist approach. Look at Infowars, look at Ann Coulter, look at the Drudge Report, look at Rush Limbaugh, look at the many other conservative outlets (and trust me, there will be more popping up). Bannon’s popularity — or, rather, the popularity of the ideology he represents — is evident throughout all of it. And that was a pretty tough thing to pull off, considering that conservative media was not populist nationalist to begin with, and resisted your ideas in the beginning of the primaries.

That media will be there for you, Mr. President. If you stick to populism. But if you pass a new Obamacare and bomb Syria all the time, then your approval rating will go down again.

It is incumbent upon you, sir, to stick with populism and to continue to trust the people in your administration who know what it’s all about: Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, Jeff Sessions, Julia Hahn, and Ben Carson. If you abandon populism, then you will not really have any constituency anymore. Will you be an establishment Democrat? Will you be a neocon? How will people even think of you? You will be adrift.

You have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Mr. President, to unify the conservative right and the progressive left behind you, thus changing politics forever and draining the swamp on behalf of the people. That’s why I support you so strongly, apart from the fact that I think you’re a good guy personally. But you must stick to it, Mr. President. For my sake. For the people’s sake. And for your own sake. Stick to it.

Michigan Board of Canvassers Votes 3-0 to Certify Election Results Despite Countless Affidavits Detailing Massive Fraud

This is an outrage.

Published

The Michigan board of canvassers decided by a 3-0 vote on Monday to certify the state’s election results, even as Democrats admit that the Detroit results are incongruent under state law.

The Democrats made the case during the hearing that abnormalities must be accepted in the city of Detroit, because to hold the city accountable would be racist and hurt democracy.

The entire embarrassing façade of a hearing, which is still underway as they certified the vote before public comment could be concluded, can be seen here:

Republican board member Aaron Van Langevelde was the Benedict Arnold who joined the Democrats to certify a dubious sham of an election, effectively pissing in the faces of the hundreds of whistleblowers who signed sworn affidavits detailing grotesque fraud in Detroit.

“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.'”

“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election,” he added.

The other Republican on the board, Norm Shinkle, was too craven to take a principled stand against voter fraud, so he abstained like a coward.

“I do not plan on voting for certification. I believe Wayne County’s certification needs to be looked at,” Shinkle said prior to his weak capitulation.

Big League Politics has reported on the rigging that took place at Detroit’s absentee voter counting board on election night, with tens of thousands of ballots arriving at 3:30am with no chain of custody, no accountability, and no way of knowing where the ballots had been for several hours:

One day after the election, the results are still pending and will likely depend on the rust belt. President Donald Trump holds a strong lead in the state of Michigan, but the city of Detroit and their mail-in and absentee ballots have yet to be officially tallied.

In news that will likely cast further doubt on the election results, tens of thousands of absentee ballots arrived in large U.S. Postal Service boxes at the TCF Center in Detroit, Mich. on Wednesday morning at 3:30 am. The TCF Center, formerly Cobo Hall, is where the absentee ballots are counted for Wayne County, which is the home of Detroit.

Former Michigan state senator Patrick Colbeck wrote that the total number of ballots dumped on the counting board totaled 38,000…

Before the ballots showed up mysteriously at 3:30 am, no ballots had arrived at the TCF Center for over six hours, and many poll workers in the facility sat around with no work to do while getting paid hundreds of dollars by the state of Michigan.

According to Michigan election law, all of these mail-in and absentee ballots had to be submitted before 8pm on Tuesday night in order to be lawfully accepted and counted for the election. This means the city of Detroit potentially sat on these ballots for hours. The white van that arrived had the name of Detroit city clerk Janice Winfrey emblazoned upon it as well as a logo and a phone number. Last month, Winfrey set the stage to drag out the process in an interview with ABC 7 News.

“We’re back in control, and we know that we will have nearly 10,000 poll workers that will be working with us to process ballots on election day, or election week is what we’re calling it now, because we know we’re going to be slow,” she said, adding that she was not going to let “outside influencers” get in the way of her election day schemes.

The rape of America is at hand, and it is the Republican elites who should bear the most substantial burden when the time comes for retribution.
