Leverage Baby!

Sundance takes a lap when he dissects recent events to “prove” that his view of President Trump’s masterful acquisition & strategic deployment of Leverage is one of his main MAGA weapons in his vast & strategic arsenal…Check out the details in the link below…

“Many have refused to accept “leverage” was part of President Trump’s primary determination and decision-making.  CTH has been heavily criticized for even presenting such analysis.  Hopefully, this interview puts an end to those criticisms.

Leverage is the primary filter here; and it’s not just leverage against domestic political enemies.

President Trump has fifty years of business skills in various predatory and adversarial financial deals.  Leverage, or the ability to force an opponent to take an action that benefits your position, is the most valuable weapon in deals; business or politics the same is true.

This type of leverage is extremely valuable and it’s not just against Democrats, Obama and the Never Trump alliance (ie. Sea Island group).  President Trump is in a fight against multiple enemies from all sides, across all aisles and political alignments.  The declassification leverage is like an atomic hammer that strikes everyone in a 360° blast radius.”

Trump Speed…for Dummies

Sundance brilliantly & simply lays out how Trump Speed work in getting things done.  See his original post below for details!

“Traditional politicians have always directed their policy efforts at the political side of the economy. [ie. make, enforce or eliminate a regulation to change the decision-making of those who are in control of the market.]  However, within that approach the cause and effect takes time.

President Trump, works with a sense of urgency in all things.  He doesn’t like to wait for policies to take effect; instead he goes deeper into the dynamic and focuses on the root of the issue – in this economic example, trade is the economic fulcrum.

MAGAnomics is all about moving the fulcrum to achieve the desired result.  In the goal of gaining manufacturing investment, Trump’s sense of urgency, creates policies that in turn create a similar immediacy.  [ie. capital expenditures can only be written off if the capital expense is invested within a short window].  As a consequence there is a larger benefit to the investor if the action is taken quickly.  [See FoxConn Wisconsin etc.]”

Darkly Through the Glass

Sundance lays out a brilliant analytical case for why “the big ugly” coup attempt by the Deep State has been able to take cover even when the most damning revelations come to light.  Please read the original post, linked below, for details…

“Within the flip-side-motive scenario we find a strong likelihood the bad actors inside the conspiracy have been able to formulate their defense strategy for more than a year.  In essence the conspiracy crew, and their lawfare defenders, have known the evidence against them. The very specific evidence.

Secondly, if this unnerving perspective is accurate, in addition to explaining why we have not witnessed any accountability this would almost certainly indicate special counsel Robert Mueller and AAG Rod Rosenstein hold a duplicitous (institutionally saving) intent.

♦(1) Create a Special Counsel investigation – By creating the investigation it is then used as a shield by any corrupt FBI/DOJ official who would find himself/herself under downstream congressional investigation.  Former officials being deposed/questioned by IG Horowitz or Congress could then say they are unable to answer those questions due to the ongoing special counsel investigation.  In this way Mueller provides cover for officials.

♦(2)  Use the investigation to keep any and all inquiry focused away from the corrupt DOJ and FBI activity that took place in 2016, 2016, 2017.  Keep the media narrative looking somewhere, anywhere, other than directly at the epicenter of the issues. In this way, Mueller provides distraction and talking points against the Trump administration.

♦(3) Use the investigation to suck-up, absorb, any damaging investigative material that might surface as a result of tangentially related inquiry.  Example: control the exposure of evidence against classified leak participants like SSCI Director of Security, James Wolfe. In this way Mueller provides cover for the institutions and the administrative state.

♦(4) Use the authority within the investigation, and the control parameters therein, to keep those involved in the original conspiracy informed about any evidence against them.

In all of these objectives the Mueller special counsel has been stunningly effective.”

Some clarification from comments to Sundance’s original post:

weirdflunky says:

Didn’t Sundance ,just the other day, post a thread that the new acting AG was the “releaser”?

Something I’m missing here.

Which isn’t really all that surprising by the way.

    No, you’re not missing anything.

    The question behind the “unofficial” releases is generally about *intent* or *motive*.

    There are two Occam’s Razor (likely) scenarios. A good intent, and a bad intent; the review of Whitaker was the former, whereas this is the latter.

Ideally this ”white hat” scenario perspective of the Razor would be the preferred situation underlying the facts Sundance has laid out…we’ll (hopefully) see…

Dragon Diminishes?

“Big Panda must see their diminished bamboo forest as the natural, current, and diminishing forecast status.  Only then will Panda engage in negotiations.  China must be in a seemingly perpetual stasis of losing before they will contemplate their need to achieve gains.

This is an economic and geopolitical battle that requires nerves of steel and an incredible amount of cunning and strategy.  As President Trump resets the baseline, China will make multiple simultaneous moves to counter any potential losses.

President Trump, Secretary Ross and U.S.T.R. Lighthizer must think well ahead of China (they have); and make moves early in the conflict (they have); long before China realizes they are being confronted (they did).   {Go Deep} As we saw with the DPRK showdown Trump was several moves ahead of Xi, and blocked the counter-offense position of the Red Dragon before it was deployed.

President Trump will not back down from his position; the U.S. holds all of the leverage and the issue must be addressed. President Trump has waited three decades for this moment. This President and his team are entirely prepared for this.

We are finally confronting the geopolitical Red Dragon, China!”

Tea & Crumpets for the Strumpets?

Regular readers of The Conservative Treehouse won’t be surprised that the British were complicit, along with Obama & Hillary, to prevent the election of Donald Trump & then interfered with his transition & presidency.  Will a Democratically controlled house sweep this treasonous scandal under the filthy swamp stench carpet?  The Trump Train Trudges On…

“In 2016 candidate Trump supported Brexit; the professional political class in the U.K. were vehemently against it.  Additionally, candidate Trump was openly challenging the structure of NATO and demanding changes to the alliance.  This was antithetical to the interests of the U.K. government and likely sent shockwaves through their collectivist system when candidate Trump won the GOP nomination.  The Brits had a strong motive to see Trump destroyed and aligned with weaponized U.S. intelligence toward that end.

As President, Mr. Trump, has held true to his campaign promises and forced the British -and the EU writ large- to be more responsible for their own military security.  President Trump has challenged the post-WW2 NATO structures and forced the EU to pay more for their defense.  Many member nations are vocally unhappy with this shifted landscape because it means less money for liberal/socialist causes. [Note: Including Canada]

Lastly, the U.K. and E.U. (mostly German anxiety) are facing a much tougher trade objective as outlined by President Trump.  The trade conflict is costing them billions in addition to their increased need to spend on their own defense via NATO to keep Trump off their back.  He might be just one man, but President Trump has them surrounded.”

George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

Stella shares some of the history & debate before the first official Thanksgiving Presidential Proclamation of our then young nation. Our forefathers & mothers publicly & gratefully acknowledged God’s presence & provision & protection in our nation’s founding!

Stella's Place

In 1789, we celebrated our first official Thanksgiving as a Nation.  On October 3, 1789, George Washington issued the Proclamation at the request of Congress.  Then, as now, there was controversy surrounding the necessity, or even the seemliness, for the Federal government to issue such a proclamation.
