I don’t know about the rest of America, but I’m getting pretty sick and tired of the “Trump Exception” to everything in official Washington. The phrase, “We are a nation of laws, not men” was literally coined to avoid something like the Trump Exception from existing. The phrase means that no man in America is a king on the one hand, and on the other, that we are all equal in the eyes of the law. But now that the uppity American voters went and elected Donald Trump, we somehow need an exception to the system that has served us well for 200-plus years.
Barack Obama, for example, created his DACA amnesty for a million illegal aliens through an executive order – which was an unprecedented act in the history of American government. This seems like a no-brainer. If one president can create a program out of thin air via executive order, a subsequent president should be able to end that program via executive order.
But not under the Trump Exception. The Trump administration has to take its case to the Supreme Court to attempt to end DACA – and the conclusion is still forthcoming.
Obama withheld foreign aid from Ukraine. Ho hum. Trump temporarily withheld aid from Ukraine and ended up doing more for that tiny, faraway country than Obama did, and it is somehow an impeachable offense.
Now that the Official Adam Schiff Dog, Pony and Impeachment Show is under way, the Trump Exception is on full display – especially when it comes to two of the Deep State’s star witnesses.
Let’s start with He Who Must Not Be Named, the whistleblower, Eric Ciaramella. Here is a text message exchange between fired FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. This exchange took place in November of 2016, just days after Donald Trump’s epic victory over the perpetually fainting elderly woman who stole Kim Jong Un’s wardrobe:
Strzok: Talking with Bill. Do we want Joe to go with Evanina instead of Charlie for a variety of reasons?
Page: Hmm. Not sure. Would it be unusual to have [sic] show up again? Maybe another agent from the team?
Strzok: Or, he’s “the CI guy.” Same.might [sic] make sense. He can assess if there [sic] are any new [sic] Qs, or different demeanor. If Katie’s husband is there, he can see if there are people we can develop for potential relationships.
There’s a load of information in that exchange, which we’ve talked about previously. Most of the names are spies that Strzok and Page immediately began running inside the Trump transition team, as they orchestrated the fake Russian collusion setup. “Katie” is believed to be Katherine Pitcock, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence’s former Chief of Staff. “Joe” and “Evanina” have not been ID’d.
And “Charlie,” the “CI guy” (Central Intelligence), is believed to be Eric Ciaramella, whose last name is pronounced CHAR-uh-mell-uh. The very same “whistleblower” who complained about President Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president, was also a central player in the Russian collusion coup attempt. This is the reason why everyone from Adam Schiff to Fox News refuses to say Ciaramella’s name publicly.
Ciaramella was fired from the National Security Council in 2017 when he was caught leaking confidential information to the media.
Question: How is it possible that Ciaramella was able to keep his security clearance and therefore go back to his old job at the CIA? Especially considering that he was fired for violating pretty much the only rule you have to follow to have a security clearance?
My guess is that the answer is, once again, the Trump Exception. Federal employees can violate black-letter law without consequence, as long as they’re breaking the law to undermine President Trump. You have to have a security clearance to serve sloppy joes to people in the CIA cafeteria. You cannot work at Langley in any capacity without some sort of security clearance. Yet Ciaramella kept his clearance and was not prosecuted after he broke the law.
The other star impeachment witness is Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, a Ukrainian-born partisan and active duty Army officer. Vindman is also on the National Security Council inside the White House.
According to Vindman’s closed-door testimony in Adam Schiff’s secret basement hearings, he disobeyed a direct order from the Commander in Chief; lobbied foreign governments and urged them to “resist” President Trump; leaked confidential information to staffers who lacked the proper clearance; and engaged in a seditious manner to undermine the foreign policy directives of an elected president.
Continental Army General George Washington would have shot Vindman on the spot for behaving in this way.
Vindman appears to be guilty of breaching multiple sections of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Based on a quick glance, Vindman could be credibly accused of engaging in mutiny (Article 94), failure to obey a lawful order (Article 92) and conduct unbecoming an officer (Article 133).
Under normal circumstances, any Army officer who betrays his country in such a fashion would be sitting a cozy 8-by-8 room and awaiting his court martial. But Vindman is not doing that. He wasn’t relieved of duty. He’s at the White House today, still working on the National Security Council. How is this possible? The Trump Exception, of course.
Our moral and spiritual “betters” in the mainstream media won’t even bother to ask these questions, because of the Trump Exception. They’re just glad that an impeachment is going on now, so they can avoid mentioning that that they covered up for serial womanizer and accused rapist Harvey Weinstein, and the pedophile ring of Jeffrey Epstein (who didn’t kill himself).
How are our moral and spiritual betters in the media doing today, by the way? Oh, right. An Emmy Award-winning former chief medical correspondent for NBC News is in jail. Bruce Hensel has been accused of soliciting sexual photographs from a 9-year-old girl. Stay classy, NBC!
The thought that I keep coming back to is that the creeps in DC are not just rebelling against President Trump. They’re rebelling against you and me and every patriotic American who voted for President Trump. We elected Trump to impose our agenda on DC. The Trump Exception is really an exception that says, “We’re not going to let those disgusting Americans run things. We’re the ones who are really in charge.”
Good luck with that, Deep State. You’re really not going to like what happens next.
