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.

Trump’s Life History of Obstructing Justice

Washington (Gallant Gold Media Hill Report | Opinion | March 6, 2019) –  Trump’s “Teflon” image – the one where no matter what Trump does wrong (“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot someone and not lose voters”) results in nothing sticking – needs to be examined more closely. It holds the answers to the current tsunami regarding the Mueller investigation.

We can clearly see the many crimes/wrongs Trump has committed, against thousands and thousands, maybe even millions of people… yet nothing stymies Trump. He’s never held accountable. Never permanently sidelined. Never restrained in jail. Never even had to do community service. Trump manages to overthrow his enemies and opposers, and all the higher angels determined to keep the scales balanced, using one consistent dark tactic that’s become the cornerstone of his survivability through all of his twisted schemes.

Trump has mastered the art of obstructing justice.

It truly is an art. The Art of the Deal in fact. That is the deal. Trump’s deal making is a simple matter of force, intimidation and threats. Coercing the other party into accepting his warped, unjust offer.

Screen Shot 2019-03-06 at 10.02.13 PM.png

Merriam-Webster Law Dictionary, OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE LEGAL DEFINITIONthe crime or act of willfully interfering with the process of justice and law especially by influencing, threatening, harming, or impeding a witness, potential witness, juror, or judicial or legal officer or by furnishing false information in or otherwise impeding an investigation or legal process.

Trump has had several skilled mentors who were gifted at bestowing their nefarious ways upon their mentee: Roy Cohn, MOB Boss Nicky Scarfo, mobster Daniel Sullivan, the Russian MOB, Dictator Putin… to name a few.

Crimes that Trump has already succeeded at obstructing justice for (beginning in 1973, so that’s 55+ years of nothing sticking):

  • Money Laundering
  • Sexual Assault
  • Contract Disputes
  • Tax Evasion
  • Fraud
  • Perjury
  • Discrimination
  • Civil Rights Violations
  • Defamation
  • Ethics Violations
  • Inciting violence
  • Personal Injury
  • A total of more than 3,500 lawsuits

So back to the present. Trump has lost his tight inner circle of loyalists at the White House. The few advisors who remain are not loyal, so there’s no trust. Trump is now relying on his “gut” to run the country.  Trump’s core being, his gut, consists of 55 years of obstructing justice. He knows no other way. He’s not going to change. Live by the sword, be dethroned by the sword.

National Emergency | Continuity of Government Protocols

Washington (Gallant Gold Media Hill Report) –  The safety and well-being of Americans from coast to coast, and living around the world, is of paramount importance. The annual federal dollars budgeted for protecting Americans and our borders is staggering:

  • DHS | $47.5 billion
  • FBI | $8.77 billion
  • US Intelligence | $57.7 billion
  • DOD | $639.1 billion
  • SD| $90.3 billion
  • FEMA | $18 billion
  • TOTAL | $861.37 billion

States also have significant budgets allocations for protecting citizens. Safety and security is clearly a priority.

The standard continuity of government protocols for national emergencies involves our nation’s top ten leaders shifting intoemergencyresponse. There are strict guidelines to follow. For example, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack:

  • President Bush was stuck on a plane in the air with all airports closed
  • Vice President Cheney made a decision to stay in communication with key decision makers and thus did not fall back to his secure site
  • House Speaker Denny Hastert was immediately take to underground bunker in the mountains
  • Attorney General John Ashcroft was on a government plane, he requested that it be turned around and return to Washington, but the FAA would not authorize
  • Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield refused to obey the response protocols and instead rushed to the Pentagon’s crash sight and tried to rescue the injured
  • Several of the 10 in line to the president were out of the country and could not follow the proper procedure
  • Several others were never contacted

On Friday February 15, 2019 President Trump held an erratic press conference in the Rose Garden to announce his “national emergency.” Most described it as a wild fifty minutes of Trump switching from one topic to the next, without rhyme or reason, ending with a final comment, “I didn’t need to do this .” Then, instead of following the standard continuity of government protocols, Trump hopped on Air Force One and beelined it to Mar-a- Lago for a luxurious weekend of golf.

Texts from the twin towers on September 11, 2001, a real national emergency, were heart wrenching. The last thoughts from thousands who were about to die. The following is an example of what a real national emergency sounds and feels like from those caught in the crosshairs:

Several National Emergency hashtags have been lighting up Twitter all day, #FAKENationalEmergency and #NotesFromNationalEmergency:

In memory of the thousands killed in past, real national emergencies, and the agonizing internal wounds of family members that will never heal, it’s disgraceful that an American president would pull a stunt like this and label it a national emergency when doing so traumatizes those who’ve suffered through the tormenting real deal. This is shameful.

Trump’s Alarming New “Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office”

What is the renaming of the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office really about?

Mysteriously, on Friday 21 December 2018 – a tsunami news day following Defense Secretary Mattis’ abrupt resignation, and his chilling resignation letter being shared with the American public, followed by Congress and Trump’s intense battle over border security and funding the wall, which resulted in the entire country waiting with baited breath to see if the government would shutdown, which it did – there was a seeming innocuous little Trump tweet mixed in with all this high drama.

Screen Shot 2018-12-28 at 5.44.43 PM.png

This announcement deals with the most perilous of all subject matters, nuclear weapons, and can only be processed with a giant question mark.

The original Domestic Nuclear Detection Office reads like a fully integrated, multi-level massive program that has been fine-tuned over the past 16 years.

The new H.R. 7213 bill is very simple and direct and not a bill that anyone would necessarily pause and analyze. It’s presented as an office name change, just as Trump’s tweet indicates.

However, the link trump included in his tweet, with an official “Statement by the President,” dated Friday 21 December 2018, is anything but simple and direct. Trump’s abnormal letter leaves one to wonder whether this bizarre verbiage is being crafted as a counter strategy for Trump’s intense anti-Mueller, anti-Dem animus.

What does Trump mean when he declares, “My administration will treat this provision as advisory. I hope that consultation will be possible, and I recognize the benefits of working with congress on the ‘Securing the Cities’ program. Nevertheless, the Act’s mandatory consultation provision is not consistent with the Constitution’s separation of powers.”

Huh? What is Trump talking about?

Does this Presidential Statement carry any weight? Is it legally binding? It reads like a major power usurpation. In the original Domestic Nuclear Detection Office program, there’s no mention at all of the president being included in the decision making.

Further, the Presidential Statement goes on to state: “Section 2(g)(6) of the Act purports to require the Secretary of Homeland Security annually to provide a report to the Congress that includes recommendations for any necessary statutory changes regarding the CWMD Office, or, if no statutory changes are deemed necessary, an explanation of that conclusion. My administration will treat this provision in a manner consistent with Article II, section 3 of the Constitution, which provides the President the discretion to recommend to the Congress only ‘such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.’”

Trump’s Presidential Statement blatantly ignores Article 1, section 8, clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution, which mandates, “The Congress shall have the Power to… provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States.” This is common knowledge and has been referenced often during Trump’s presidency.

Unfathomably, Article II, section 3 is nothing more than an outline of how the Electoral vote determines the winner of a presidential election and thus clearly has no bearing on this subject matter.

This tweet seems like another “Severe” CODE RED warning to the American public, particularly Dems and the Mueller team. It actually reads like a threat.

The Ha Ha Border Wall & Our Founding Fathers

There have been borders and boundaries and enemies since the beginning of time. It seems that Trump would have us believe that borders, and citizens from foreign countries crossing borders, are a brand new phenomenon. These issues have all been worked out before, so why is this difficult for Trump?

In 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were enthralled with a sensational discovery they made while meandering through a British garden where they nearly stumbled into a Ha Ha, (originally, the French stated “Ooh-la-la” when they first saw this innovative border solution; the British shortened it to Ha Ha).

During the mid-to-late 1600’s, the Royal Society of London became passionately consumed with botany and horticulture. Landowners had always grown their own crops to feed their families, and raised their own farm animals. They created utility gardens for these necessities. But with the advent of the botanical age, they were eager to add an ornamental garden to their landscape, and struggled to find a solution for keeping the farm animals away from their ornamental masterpieces. They didn’t want barrier walls that would block the views of the flowering shrubs and trees and colorful flower beds. A creative problem solver came up with the clever idea to dig a ditch that would keep the animals on the utility side of the garden without blocking the views of the ornamental side.

Resourceful, flexible thinking usually nets excellent results. Trump is a complete 180 from our Founders. Is there any way to bend Trump’s rigid, cemented opinion?

Trump’s Miserable Christmas Eve

It’s Monday Christmas eve, and across the globe Christians are stopping our busy lives for a brief moment to gather with family and friends and reflect on why Christ came to earth, and what his message was to humankind. Treat others the way you want to be treated immediately comes to mind.

It’s humbling to assess Christ’s example, and ponder personal choices, particularly over the past twelve months, and measure how they compare to the expectations of the higher being up above. It’s heartening to know we can keep on improving in the upcoming days and months, at a steady pace, one day at a time.

Emotional sentiments are really the magic of Christmas, particularly Christmas Eve as we eagerly await – with high hopes – the wonder and excitement of December 25.  For me, Silent Night by the Temptations is the distinctive symbolic expression that immediately conjures up all the deep, warm feelings, woven throughout a lifetime, that grounds the human spirit and strengthens a commitment to do what’s right.

It seems so clear this holiday season that the immediate threat to all things good, is the current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Checking his Twitter feed to see if he’d been doing any soul searching this Christmas Eve, especially in light of the #TrumpShutdown, on the heels of the most frightening weeks in recent American history, it’s troubling to see further proof of Trump’s evilness… and yet encouraging all the same. Evil is exactly why Christ came to earth over two thousand years ago. To set the example for how to overcome evil, and keep hope alive in this pursuit.

An evil soul is always miserable. Clearly Trump is that. His Christmas Eve 2018 Twitter feed reveals a troubled, twisted mind. Trump doesn’t seem to have a conscience, so he doesn’t process shame or guilt, instead he rants, raves, lashes out and points fingers. Trump provides a great example of what Herod must have been like during Christ’s time.

The tweets are in chronological order beginning very early in the morning and running through the day. How can he possibly begin tweeting at 6:31 AM?

Our enemies across the world must do this every day… collects all the tweets and interpret. Psychological analysis is the reason Putin has been so successful at manipulating Trump. Putin likely began psych analysis more than a decade ago.

The Christmas gift America needs right now is Mueller’s Report, or better yet… Mueller’s indictment of President Donald J. Trump.

The Wall | Trump’s Campaign Promise is Irrelevant

During this tough week of debate over the border wall and whether or not the government will shutdown over the holidays, it’s important for Trump, Ryan and McConnell to take a step back and properly interpret the dynamics of this conflict.

The root of the problem is the fact that Trump became president as a result of electoral college votes – 304 (Trump)  to 227 (Clinton). But Trump never had a mandate for his agenda. Clinton won the popular vote 65,844,610 to Trump’s 62,979,636, a difference of 2,864,974.

The Legislative Branch is aligned with the popular vote. Each Congressional Representative represents the interest of 700,000 Americans. Each Congressional Representative becomes an advocate for what’s best for their particular constituent base. Two Senators represent each state; some Senators represent a few million, others represent many millions. So clearly with a difference of 2,864,974 in popular vote against the president, we immediately recognize that Trump is working against high tide. There are not enough Americans that support Trump’s demand for a wall, which is why he’s throwing a tantrum. So then why are McConnell and Ryan allowing Trump to muscle away their power?

The Legislative Branch is separate from the Executive Branch. It doesn’t matter that Trump promised his base a wall. It’s irrelevant. Trump can find a way to pay for the wall out of his own pocket if he feels it’s imperative to deliver on the promise.

It’s very clear that Trump is yet again trying to usurp the power of the Legislative Branch by threatening to shut down the government unless he gets his wall. The numbers simply are not in Trump’s favor. They never were and never will be. Bullying the Legislative Branch into submission just drives home the point that Trump does not respect our three Branches of Government and is determined to undermine the Legislative and Judicial Branches in order to secure autocratic power in the United States.
