Does Mueller Report Confirm Trump is Illegitimate?

Washington (Gallant Gold Media Hill Report | Opinion | April 30, 2019) –  There’s a very dark cloud hanging over the White House following the release of the Mueller Report. The extensive evidence outlined in Volume 1, the Russian Influence Campaign section of the reportis so dense, despite the large blacked out gaps, that halfway through it becomes clear that Trump is an illegitimate president.

Beginning in 2014, Russia became fixated on influencing our 2016 presidential election. Mueller has outlined the Russian plan of attack in a very systematic fashion, lining up all the dots of evidence very neatly, and in so doing proving that Russia was intent of installing a candidate who’d be open to accommodating Russia’s needs and wishes. They believed Trump was this man. Success. And now that we can see the boundless Russian efforts outlined, it doesn’t actually matter if Trump or his campaign colluded. Russia’s influence campaign worked. Period. And we’ve been suffering the consequences ever since.

The massive Russian Influence Campaign:

  • Russian “Active Measures” Social Media Campaign
    • Structure of the Internet Research Agency (IRA)
    • Funding & oversight from Concord & Prigozhin
    • The IRA targets US elections
      • The IRA Ramps Up U.S. Operations as Early as 2014
      • U.S. Operations Through IRA-Controlled Social Media Accounts
      • U.S. Operations through Facebook
      • U.S. Operations through Twitter
        • Individual Twitter Accounts
        • IRA Botnet Activities
      • U.S. Operations involving Political Rallies
      • Targeting and Recruitment of U.S. Persons
      • Interactions and Contacts with the Trump Campaign
      • Trump Campaign Promotion of IRA Political Materials
      • Contact with Trump Campaign Officials in Connection to rallies
  • Russian Hacking and Dumping Operations
    • GRU Hacking Directed at the Clinton Campaign
      • 5 sub headings
    • Dissemination of the Hacked Materials
      • 7 sub headings
    • Additional GRU Cyber Operations
      • 2 sub headings
    • Trump Campaign and the Dissemination of Hacked Materials
      • 9 sub headings
  • Russian Government Links to and Contacts with the Trump Campaign
    • Campaign Period (September 2015 – November 8, 2016)
      • 51 sub headings (extremely disturbing)
    • Post-Election and Transition Period Contacts
      • 18 sub headings

With Trump now refusing to comply with House Investigations, in defiance of the U.S. Constitution, on the heels of Mueller’s big reveal, it appears we’re a government in crisis. The House Oversight and Judiciary Committees have a plan. They need the support of the American people. The key to understanding the depth and breadth of this crisis is reading the Mueller Report.

Cakeism |Why Good People Support an Evil Leader (Trump)

Washington (Gallant Gold Media Hill Report |Opinion | March 19, 2019) –  This phenomenon that we’ve been witnessing for nearly three years now – friends, family and colleagues who we get along with very well, many of whom we even admire, supporting Trump, and we can’t figure out how they can be so blind – can be explained. Cakeism. We’ve seen it before. In fact, illustrations of this are everywhere. Securing a new credit card and jetting around the world. Buying a fancy car when the existing one only has $35,000 miles. Eating delicious cake. Cake is so delectable. Does anyone doubt this? It’s certainly my weakness.

“Let them eat cake.” ~ Marie Antoinette, 1789

When good things are good, they can’t be bad, right? Take low unemployment rate as an example. It’s certainly wonderful. No one can deny it. Who doesn’t love an excellent job market? I’ll take doubles, even triples. Trump announced at CPAC, that the unemployment rate is so low we don’t have enough skilled Americans to fill the open positions, so we need immigrants. Yes, Trump did emphatically state that we desperately needed immigrants, even though he’s demanding a wall to keep immigrants out. He clarified. According to Trump,  we need the right kind of immigrants.

Screen Shot 2019-03-19 at 8.26.56 PM.png

If a low unemployment rate is good, how can it be bad? Very easily. There’s always a downside to a short cut. Consequences are inevitable. Increasing our national debt by a trillion dollars a year, will lead to the death of America unless a fierce and noble leadership team steps in to quickly fix this disaster. Cutting environmental protections, as well as all the regulations that keep our landscapes and health safeguarded, will have very serious repercussions to our food supply, our tourism industry, and our physical well-being. Our crumbling infrastructure can’t be ignored.  Modernizing requires public funds. Taxes. The downside to our low unemployment will quickly become our worst nightmare in the not so distant future.

Cakeism. The belief that there’s only one side of the coin, the good side. The upside. The belief that there are never any consequences for bad decisions or short cuts.

Screen Shot 2019-03-19 at 8.27.52 PM.png

So yes, low unemployment rate is sensational, the same way chocolate ganache cake is to die for. We can absolutely thank Trump for this. Thank you, Mr. Trump.  But an increasingly polarized country, with the far right demanding a civil war (what they mean by this, is slaughtering innocent liberals and their families with assault rifles, the same way the New Zealand terrorist slaughtered innocent families at the Mosque) is a frightening traumatic reality. A corrupt cabinet that undermines our future. A president without a moral code, leading through fear, serving himself, bettering himself, at the expense of everyone else. Extreme weather conditions that will only grow worse, flattening towns, destroying thousands of square miles of personal property, killing thousands of Americans, eliminating our coastal communities and many of our most important military bases.

Screen Shot 2019-03-19 at 8.25.15 PM.png

Destroyed American landscapes. Unattended superfund sights. Gargantuan national debt. Crumbling infrastructure. An entire generation of undereducated. Alarming healthcare crisis. Our cherished institutions, the very pillars of our democracy, smashed. Extreme wealth disparity. Out of control white collar crime. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny,” ~Aristotle, 322 BC

Excellence is what America has always reached for. Excellence has been our collective purpose for two straight centuries. Excellence is what propelled us to become a global titan. Excellence, not cakeism.

I’m sure many of us have family, friends and/or colleagues who’ve made comments to the effect, “I like a lot of his policies, but I’m not a big fan of Trump.” We can now simply reply, “Cakeism. The belief that you can have all the advantages, and never have to deal with the disadvantages.” Cakeism isn’t rational of course. Bad decisions will always have negative consequences, despite the momentary short term gain.

Longest Shutdown Ever | GOP Senators 2020

It’s Friday night January 11, 2019 just before midnight. Mitch McConnell is already back home in Kentucky, tucked safely away in his expansive homestead, sipping champagne perhaps, while 800,000 Americans are gripped with trauma as we head into the 22 day of the longest shutdown in American history.

This shutdown has no logical justification. It feels like we’ve been viciously attacked by a foreign enemy… similar to the perilous grip of a cyber attack that inflicts grave financial harm.

Mitch McConnell is the Senate Majority Leader and is ultimately the most responsible for this nightmare. After two years of enabling Trump to defy the U.S. Constitution, and two years of McConnell failing at his responsibility to be a check on the Executive Branch, the cumulative result is a treasonous president who’s a threat to American citizens and a danger to the world.

McConnell could easily rally his GOP colleagues to follow through with their oath of office, and yet he defiantly refuses. It’s galling.

The following are 21 GOP Senators who are up for reelection in 2020. May the self-serving, anti-American amongst them, who’ve corrupted their oath of office by their flagrant inaction and indifference that’s traumatizing American citizens, be the final straw that permanently marks them, and makes these their final days in office.

  • Lamar Alexander (R-TN)
  • Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV)
  • Bill Cassidy (R-LA)
  • Susan Collins (R-ME)
  • John Cornyn (R-TX)
  • Tom Cotton (R-AR)
  • Steve Daines (R-MT)
  • Mike Enzi (R-WY)
  • Joni Ernst (R-IA)
  • Cory Gardner (R-CO)
  • Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
  • Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MI)
  • James Inhofe (R-OK)
  • Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
  • David Perdue (R-GA)
  • Jim Risch (R-ID)
  • Pat Roberts (R-KS)
  • Mike Rounds (R-SD)
  • Ben Sasse (R-NE)
  • Dan Sullivan (R-AK)
  • Thom Tillis (R-NC)

Below are what some had to say on the eve of the longest shutdown in US history… a shutdown that strongly resembles a Russian cyber attack.

Senator Mitch McConnell did NOT tweet on Friday January 11, 2019 before heading home for the weekend.

Senator Susan Collins did NOT tweet on Friday January 11, 2019, the eve of what’s to become the longest shutdown in US history, that will harm 800,000 innocent Americans.

Senator Ben Sasse also did NOT tweet on Friday January 11, 2019, the eve of what’s to become the longest shutdown in US history, that will harm 800,000 innocent Americans.

Senator Shelley Moore Capito did NOT tweet on Friday January 11, 2019, the eve of what’s to become the longest shutdown in US history, that will harm 800,000 innocent Americans. But she did retweet  the GOP video on January 10, 219.

Screen Shot 2019-01-13 at 11.51.50 PM.png

Senator Lamar Alexander seems to have the right attitude, meeting with constituents on January 11, 2019 to discuss with them the best way to end the shutdown. He’s very atypical compared to his GOP counterparts.

Senator Tom Cotton, no mention of the shutdown on January 11, 2019, but Senator Cotton did bring up the border o January 9, 2019, approximately 24 hours after Trump’s failed Presidential Address.

Senator Bill Cassidy actually has a good idea, but the cartel money should be used for modern technology rather than a pointless medieval wall.

Screen Shot 2019-01-13 at 11.58.27 PM.png

Screen Shot 2019-01-13 at 11.59.42 PM.png

Senator Steve Daines didn’t tweet about the shutdown on January 11, 2019, but he did tweet about protecting public lands and working across party lines which seems to subliminally suggest he’d like to work with Dems to reopen the government.

Screen Shot 2019-01-14 at 12.07.53 AM.png

Senator Mike Enzi is another GOP Senator who showed an air of bipartisanship by cosponsoring bill to end government shutdowns forever. This works.

Screen Shot 2019-01-14 at 12.15.11 AM.png

Senator Joni Ernst did NOT tweet on Friday January 11, 2019 about the shutdown, the eve of what’s to become the longest shutdown in US history, that will harm 800,000 innocent Americans. But she did show complete indifference to the plight of the 800,000 federal employees by tweeting about her own pet project.

 

Screen Shot 2019-01-14 at 10.57.48 PM.png

Senator Cory Gardner did NOT tweet on Friday January 11, 2019 about the shutdown, the eve of what’s to become the longest shutdown in US history, that will harm 800,000 innocent Americans. But he did show complete indifference to the plight of the 800,000 federal employees by tweeting about his own pet project.

Screen Shot 2019-01-14 at 11.02.17 PM.png

Senator Thom Tillis did NOT tweet on Friday January 11, 2019 about the shutdown, the eve of what’s to become the longest shutdown in US history, that will harm 800,000 innocent Americans. But he did show complete indifference to the plight of the 800,000 federal employees by tweeting about his own pet project.

Screen Shot 2019-01-12 at 12.18.55 AM.png

Senator David Perdue did NOT tweet on Friday January 11, 2019, the eve of what’s to become the longest shutdown in US history, that will harm 800,000 innocent Americans.

How to Remove a Senator from Office

Removing a United States Senator or Congressional Representative from office is referred to as Expulsion. The process for expulsion is outlined at the beginning of the United States Constitution:

U.S. Constitution, Legislative Branch, Article 1, Section 5: …”Each House [of Congress] may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the Concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member.”

So it takes two-thirds of either the Senate or the House to remove one of its members.

The very first Senator to be expelled, was a signer of the United States Constitution, Tennessee Senator William Blount – July 7, 1797. This was less than ten years after the Constitution was adopted. The offense? Treason. John Adams was President.

Thirteen other Senators were expelled in 1861 for supporting the “Confederate rebellion.”

In light of U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis’ resignation letter on Thursday December 20, 2018, one that immediately set off  alarm bells all over the world, it’s essential that we as a nation pause to take stalk. Mattis’ letter reads more like a Code-Red “SEVERE” Threat Level warning, than a simple resignation.

In fact, Mattis’ resignation came at the conclusion of a year of SEVERE warnings, conveyed through a litany of book releases by other patriotic military generals, former cabinet secretaries, and acclaimed political writers. Here are a few:

With this many distinguished leaders sounding the alarm, and with the president of the United States going unchecked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and a few like-minded colleagues, the only course of action available to the extremely concerned American public in the upcoming months is that of knowing that the father of the Constitution, James Madison, provided the American public with an action plan for removing this type of barrier to our sovereignty.

These are extreme times. The writing is on the wall. We’ve been warned over and over and over again. The blue wave arrives on January 3, 2019 and will take control of the House, which brings great peace of mind. However, the Senate still remains in control of the Republican leader Senator Mitch McConnell who has consistently demonstrated his strong loyalty to Donald J. Trump and appears determined to maintain this same course of action in 2019.

With that in mind, knowing what counter moves we have available in the upcoming months, is sure to keep us on course as we proceed forward with removing one of the most severe national security threats our nation has ever faced.

Trump DC Hotel Lawsuit Moves Forward

The Constitution of the United States of America, Article I, Section 9 state: …”No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any king, Prince, or foreign State.”…

On December 4, 2018, just 3 weeks ago, amidst the tidal wave of Flynn and Cohen news, the AP reported that U.S. District Court DC Judge Peter J. Messitte approved subpoenas alleging Trump profited off the presidency.

The lawsuits were filed by two Attorney Generals, one in DC and the other in Maryland. After the judge approved the subpoenas, the AGs were able to move forward and subpoena twenty companies and government agencies.

It looks to be a very strong case:

  • According to the Washington Post, Saudi’s paid $270,000 to fund 500 nights at the Trump International Hotel in DC for U.S. veterans
  • The nightly rate for these stays, $768
  • USA Today reported that the Trump Organization earned $40.4 million in 2017, Trump’s first year in office
  • $350,000 was of this Revenue was from campaign funds, 60% of which came from RNC USA Today went on to state
  • Hotel’s guests included representatives from: Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Kuwait
  • Numerous political events are held at the hotel, including one funded by the Philippine government
  • Trump is obligated to donate foreign government profits to the US Treasury, in light of the emoluments clause, but trump only donated $151,470 without supplying any documentation
  • Senator Blumenthal of Connecticut is actively involved in monitoring Trump’s International DC Hotel, along with the representatives of foreign governments who stay there, as well as the two lawsuits filed against Trump relating to profiting from his presidency

It’s been two years and Trump hasn’t be able to put this conflict to rest. Instead, it’s grown that much more significant, especially in light of Jamal Khashoggi’s grisly murder and how much Saudi money is tied into Trump’s DC hotel.
