Talk Of ‘President Pence’ Grows Louder In The Swamp

by
June 16, 2017

downloadRight around the time Donald Trump was boarding Air Force One en route to Saudi Arabia, soon to escape a capital city obsessed with investigations into his campaign’s ties with Russia and the firing of FBI Director James Comey, his vice president was receiving a booming ovation inside a fifth-floor Ritz-Carlton ballroom in the nearby Virginia suburbs. It was the afternoon of May 19, and Mike Pence stood before several hundred members of the Council for National Policy—a secretive group of conservative movement activists, donors and intellectuals that meets under off-the-record rules—and downplayed the perception of a presidency in crisis. “The truth is, you elected a man who never quits. He never backs down. He’s a fighter. He’s a winner,” Pence said, according to an audio recording obtained by Politico Magazine. “And I’ll make you a promise: No matter what Washington, D.C., might be focused on at any given moment, President Donald Trump will never stop fighting for the American people and for advancing an agenda that will make America great again!”

His audience roared. For those who feared the GOP’s once-in-a-generation opportunity for a policy renaissance was being squandered by infighting and incompetence and the creeping scent of scandal, the vice president’s words, as they so often have during the early days of the Trump administration, provided temporary relief. The performance was vintage Pence. He was grandiose but grounded, hailing a host of early victories but cautioning that the biggest were yet to come; he was authoritative but deferential, speaking for the party and the government while carrying greetings from his boss. Above all, Pence was upbeat, befitting the “happy warrior” persona he has long labored to promote. “It’s hard to get through all these accomplishments—unless you’re watching cable news,” he said, chuckling. “They never come up, except on one network!” Had Pence not nodded twice to the Beltway media’s preoccupations, one would have had no inkling that Trump was enduring the most perilous stretch of his young presidency—or that Pence appeared at risk of becoming collateral damage.

The night before, on the eve of Trump’s first foreign trip—and Pence’s private speech—two news outlets published a pair of eyebrow-raising stories that reflected mounting anxiety within the vice president’s inner circle. The sourcing and strategy seemed clearly choreographed. First, both articles aimed to distance Pence from the chaos engulfing Trump’s White House; CNN quoted “a senior administration adviser” who said Pence “looks tired” and never expected such mayhem on the job, while NBC cited “a source close to the administration” who complained of a “pattern” of Pence being kept in the dark on matters relating to the scandal-plagued former national security adviser, Mike Flynn. Second, both stories were authored by former Pence “embeds,” reporters who had spent months traveling with him and are expertly sourced among the vice president’s tight-knit team. And third, the news accounts cast Pence in a sympathetic light at the very moment when the D.C. media was, for the first time, beginning to hammer him. The New York Times had reported the day earlier that Flynn informed the Pence-run transition team before Inauguration Day that he was under federal investigation; the implications for Pence were staggering, and the White House categorically denied the story. But Pence had also courted trouble the week earlier by insisting that Trump’s decision to fire Comey was based on the deputy attorney general’s recommendation—a claim Trump promptly contradicted in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, embarrassing the vice president and sending an awkward question echoing around Washington: Is Pence being kept out of the loop, or is he being deceitful?

The answer, in conversations with more than a dozen people familiar with the vice president’s role in the administration and his relationship with Trump, is actually neither. They concede he has on several occasions been the victim of an uncommunicative White House—and an unpredictable president—that regularly leaves top officials hanging out to dry. They also reject the suggestion that he looks “tired,” though several friends acknowledge that his patience with the West Wing’s dysfunction has worn thin. But whether that pro-Pence leaker told CNN and NBC News the truth is less relevant than the fact there was a pro-Pence leaker at all.

    Do they think the million of us who voted for President Trump will sit by quietly and let them take Our president away from us?

  • CCblogging

    Here’s what is going on. If the Democrats can oust Trump, then they will go after Pence. The Democrats are using murder and attempted murder to overturn a free election. Arm yourself Now!

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND CAN DE-CLASSIFY ANYTHING HE WANTS TO REGARDING GET THE JOB DONE. HE NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    That’s Vice President Pence President Donald Trump. Don’t copy the one answering test paper questions across the row, that student might be getting it wrong. Such as the case here. Don’t play follow the loser.

  • TAM44

    Liberals live for one thing, hatred and destroying this country and making it a living hell hole.

  • tryscavage

    I agree…2024 election.

  • Luke

    Deranged liberals and RINOs, this is the sum of their agenda in Washington, they should be voted out today..
    We need people do the people’s work, not the work of the commie loons

  • parthenon1

    There better be dome quick second thoughts we the people elected Pres Trump because we liked his ideas and wanted to remove the Obama stain from our great nation. If the swamp occupants think they can over come what we demanded they better look out . . .i say start with John MCain and send him home!

  • Ramon1710 .

    Comey is a boob. The president can fire an FBI director for any reason. The reasons to fire Comey were many. Being one of the swamp creatures is at the top of the list.

    • CCblogging

      I believe that the real reason that President Trump fired Comey was because Comey had been outed as a leaker. Trump should have fired that lying pos right after his inauguration.

  • Dan

    The thing that these D.C. swamp dwellers fear the most, is that the Trump administration will come in, change the way business is done in D.C. and expose them all for who they are. And that would be corrupt, indecisive public servants who’s only mission is to further their own political careers and to enrich their networth while in office on the backs of the tax payer.

    • Askjrsk

      Already the unmasking!!!!!!

        You only needed to have your eyes open and a decent level of hearing over the past eight years to know that numbers were fudged and polls falsely reported in order to make Obama (the illegal , no birth certificate White House dweller) look good as he worked feverishly along side Iranian born, known Communist Valerie Jarrett, to take down America for the globalist who gained their power by “using”, means such as poor, or any other group they could claim to support, to gain their power as stated by Saul Alinsky. It is not about the cause but to use the cause to gain power! I am lying?

    • Ralph – Msg Ret

      Two polls one at 50%+ and anther at 65%+ approval rating. Actual rating probably much higher if the REAL truth be known.

  • McFerguson

    Drain the Swamp…quickly!

  • messup

    Three things to understand: 1) consolidation of power; 2) globalization and 3) “The Swamp.” Here goes: By attempting “de-legitimizing” a duly-elected President,” unwittingly these same “de-legitimizing attempts” are shucking long standing Constitutional separation of Powers (#1Consolidation). How, so? one asks. Past administration attempts at unifying three branches into one “strong executive” were almost daily occurances (Fabian Socialism). With attempted “De-legitimizing” USA’s Presidency (a feckless Executive) and “Separation of Powers,” continued unifying takes place. Now, one sector of American Society- “The Article V Constitutional Convention” philosopher kings (#2 globalization), are a few votes short of realizing their dream of “Global Collectivization.” Total reverse engineering of USA’s long standing US Constitution, Bill of Rights and Articles of Confederation (this last, already trashed).The America We The People once had, will be tossed into the trash heap of mediocrity. as a result…this is “The End Game.” Is there proof of this? Let’s examine America’s classic example of “We The Elite” P-K (philosopher-kings) syndrome of “Do As I Say, Not As I Do,” (#3 The Swamp)! This is typical of Kim-Jung-Un, Fidel Castro, Dutarte, Raul Castro et al. In other words, “The Collective vs. Individualism.” Or, “Climate Change (a Global, Despotic Regime) vs. “A Republic (Where: 1) Individualism and their God; 2) Family -one man and one woman procreate; lastly 3)individuals and families uniting in communities). In summation: “Me first, You last” is the operative word. De-legitimization of President Trump’s historic rise to USA’s Presidency and dismantling his agenda is proof, in and of itself. Pray. Amen. God Bless America and ALL Americans. Read A Bible. NKJV “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

    • Joanne Aulenbacher

      Well stated Messup!

      • messup

        A humble thank you. Brazil is undergoing similar “occult forces” having much the same “contours.” “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1) Pray. Amen. God Bless.

    • rightsright

      Thank you for your true assessment. The elitists are terrified that “we the people” will catch on to their plan for the world and as President Trump reverses the agendas against humanity, they fear that the blinders will come off and the brainwashing will be ineffective, and the power the have held over those who make it possible to continue their evil deeds will vanish. It is not Trump the man they hate, it is Trump’s ability to accomplish what it appears no one else is willing or able to, in order to free each soul to see and believe again. We must use the awesome gift we have been given-PRAYER!

  • Peter Pihun

    The democrats and the Rino’s I suspect are spreading this BS. The swamp is afraid of eventually being drained. I sincerely hope it happens sooner than later. Pence would be controlled totally by the swamp. No doubt about that!

    • Joanne Aulenbacher

      Are you saying that Pence is easily controlled? He may have a gentle persona but he would not be where he is IF that was true.

  • Robert Early

    Which dead people are talking such nonsence? Civil War is soon coming.

    • Jim Strong

      Sooner than most people are aware.

      • Robert Early

        Stay Strong, Jim !

    • Askjrsk

      Ballot stuffers and trolls. They are SCARED IN THE SWAMP. No dirty more water and sludge to suck up.
