America is under a massive attack, coming from multiple directions. All of these attacks have two main goals for an endgame: 1) Overthrowing a duly elected President, and; 2) destroying his supporters.
From the Mueller appointment as special counsel, to the train-wreck of the Manafort trial where prosecutors are getting their butts handed to them by a judge that has no patience for their antics, to the media attacks and demonizing of half the nation's citizens.
THE MUELLER APPOINTMENT
Unless one has been living under a rock, it is well known that Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel to probe whether there was any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. What has come out since Mueller's appointment is that senior members of the FBI plotted to, first, keep Donald Trump from winning the 2016 election, and second, arrange for an "insurance policy," in the event he did win, to overthrow the duly elected president.
An FBI agent’s reference to “an insurance policy” in a much-debated text message was meant to convey that the bureau needed to aggressively investigate allegations of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, according to people familiar with his account.
The agent didn’t intend to suggest a secret plan to harm the candidate but rather address a colleague who believed the Federal Bureau of Investigation could take its time because Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was certain to win the election, the people said.
The text was one of many that have recently emerged in which FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page disparaged Mr. Trump, calling him an “idiot” and “loathsome human,” among other things. Republicans have cited the texts as evidence of bias. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa), who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote the Justice Department: “Some of these texts appear to go beyond merely expressing a private political opinion, and appear to cross the line into taking some official action to create an ‘insurance policy’ against a Trump presidency.”
Mr. Strzok was the lead agent on the FBI investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state. Until late July, he was also the top investigator in special counsel Robert Mueller’s office, but Mr. Mueller removed him after learning of the texts.
So the FBI had a back up plan in the event that Donald Trump won the 2016 president election, which he did.
Then former FBI director James Comey, admitted in front of congress that he shared his memos of his meetings with President Trump with a friend, the sole goal being to have his friend "leak" the content of the memos to the press, in order to spur the appointment of a special counsel.
Sure enough, voila! A special counsel was appointed to investigate the "insurance policy," which what is now the Russia probe.
THE MANAFORT TRIAL - HANNITY WARNS 'SOMETHING BIG IS COMING'
One of the highest profile cases that has stemmed from the Mueller investigation is the charges against Paul Manafort, who was part of the the Trump presidential campaign from March 2016 to August 2016.
Mueller was able to indict Manafort with charges of conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts, being an unregistered agent of foreign principal, false and misleading FARA statements, and false statements, all of which occurred over a decade ago. None of the charges against Manafort are in any way related to the 2016 election, nor President Trump.
As former attorney and present day radio talk show host, Mark Levin, discusses with Sean Hannity in the video clip below, the crimes Manafort is on trial for right now, charges brought by Robert Mueller, were all allegedly committed while Robert Mueller himself was the director the FBI. (Mueller was FBI director from 2001 to 2013)

Before the Manafort trial even began, the presiding U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III, had already accused Mueller's lawyers of not caring about Manafort, stating "You really care about what information he might give you about Mr. Trump and what might lead to his impeachment or prosecution. That's what you're really interested in."
The trial which began this week has already generated some media chatter as the the Mueller prosecutors have managed to annoy Judge Ellis multiple times. He banned lawyers from both sides from their incessant use of the term Oligarch, in reference to rich Russians.
Federal Judge T.S. Ellis III said the term was “pejorative” and carried criminal connotations that suggested Paul Manafort “associated with despicable people, and therefore he is despicable.”
On Thursday the Judge cut the day short after the Mueller attorneys stumbled by making the same mistake twice, as described by Law And Crime:
Ayliff was mostly providing foundational testimony regarding the basic functions of a tax-preparation company. Prosecutors then moved on to specifics and attempted to “publish” one of Manafort’s e-file forms. Judge T.S. Ellis III‘s weariness all but amazed the courtroom as he denied the request–complete with an actual and pronounced finger-wag–before shouting: "No! You move it along!"
(It probably hadn’t helped matters that court had just minutes ago returned from a lengthy recess due to the prosecution calling Ayliff out of the witness order provided to both the court and the defense. But as Judge Ellis noted yesterday, he has “a long memory.”)
Composing themselves again, the prosecution moved slowly forward before asking Ayliff to define the term “financial interest.” Ayliff began to answer the question but was immediately cut off by Ellis who noted that Ayliff was not a noticed expert. The defense then belatedly objected, prompting a quick and sarcastic dressing-down from the judge–but it was again the prosecution’s turn for scorn.
Static filled the courtroom as the longest bench conference of the day ensued. Upon returning to Ayliff’s testimony, the jury learned that the issue had been deferred until Friday–if ever. Then, Assistant U.S. Attorney Uzo Asonye asked about another term of art contained on federal tax forms.
Judge Ellis, who was already standing by this point, advised Ayliff to wait and announced the court would recess early.
After the jury left, Ellis took a few minutes to tell the press and public all about the bench conference. As it turns out, not only was Ayliff a non-noticed witness being asked to give the equivalent of expert testimony, but the prosecution and defense had already agreed on what the term “financial interest” meant. Moreover, this agreement was provided on a proposed–and approved–jury instruction.
That is, not only was Ayliff not an expert and not a noticed expert as necessitated by the Federal Rules of Evidence–but his testimony had the potential to derail an already-agreed-upon definition of the term(s) in question. This, Ellis said, could have “confused or clouded” things for the jury.
Below Hannity and Levin discuss a number of issues, including the Manafort trial, where they detail some other points of interest, before the very end of the clip where Hannity gives one of his "tick tock" warnings, stating "Something big is coming, that will blow this all out of the water."
MEDIA DECLARES WAR AGAINST AMERICANS
We have been detailing the ongoing attacks against Americans, specifically the 60+ million people that voted for Donald Trump in 2016, where as shown as a montage in Thursday's article, we see major liberal networks, including CNN and MSNBC, calling Trump supporters racist, Nazis, and other labels, which is all part of attack on America.
We are now on day three of CNN's and the MSM's incessant whining after rally-goers in Tampa Florida started chanting "CNN SUCKS" at Jim Acosta, where the media is claiming that the hostility has been "stoked" by President Trump when he declares the "fake news" media is the "enemy of the people."
Two points about this claim and the manufactured outrage by the liberal media.
1) From the day President Trump announced his candidacy, the media has labeled anyone that supported President Trump or simply opposed a Hillary Clinton presidency as homophobic, Islamophobic, racists, Nazis, white supremacists, and "deplorables."
The media declared war on Trump supporters, and now they are whining like children when those same supporters call them out.
2) The targeting of Trump supporters by the media has incited physical violence against Trump supporters, by their liberal audience. Those media attacks have ratcheted up exponentially since the 2016 election for one reason..... the people refused to let the media tell them what to do and who to vote for.
Side Note- If memory serves me right, during the 2016 presidential campaign, President Trump, then a candidate, often decried the media coverage, his rally-goers also chanted against CNN pundits, and the more and the longer the media howled over it and played it on a 24 hour cycle, the better Trump-the-candidate did in the polls.
Yes, my memory did serve me correctly, here are some dire headlines from 2016:
Wapo, Oct. 2016: The press always got booed at Trump rallies. But now the aggression is menacing.
NYT, Oct. 2016: Criticism of the News Media Takes On a More Sinister Tone
Huffington Post, March 2016: Donald Trump Encourages Violence At His Rallies. His Fans Are Listening
In fact Breitbart even addressed the "Journalist Snowflakes," complaining about Trump supporters "turning on the media." They wrote in October 2016: "Triggered journalists from across the nation are bemoaning the treatment members of the press are receiving at Trump campaign rallies from the Trump supporters the media routinely misrepresents as ignorant racists, fascist Nazis, or disenchanted working whites."
Any one else getting a feeling of deja vu as we see his poll numbers rise again.
From the senior members of the FBI and other intelligence community members to plot an insurance policy against a potential Trump presidency, to the orchestration of the appointment of Robert Mueller, to the trial of Paul Manafort for alleged crimes that had nothing to do with the Trump campaign, nor the 2016 election, all with the purpose of targeting duly elected president, these are all direct attacks against the nation.
From the media we see inaccurate stories, unprecedented amounts of articles having to be corrected, edited, retracted and in some cases rewritten or deleted. Attacks against over 60+ million Americans, which has already incited tremendous levels of harassment, vandalism and physical attacks against Trump supporters. This is also a direct attack against America, just coming at it from a different direction.
They can claim they are not the "enemy of the people," but they have declared war on millions of Americans, which does make them the enemy.
