The Old Rope-a-Dope

To borrow an old boxing phrase, it appears that no one has recognized that President Donald Trump is using a “rope-a-dope” tactic in his constant criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, spurring the media to fret constantly over the possibility that Trump might fire him. Consider for a second the possibility that Sessions may, in fact, be overseeing U.S. Attorney John Huber in a widespread and actually secret investigation into widespread corruption and misuse of power by people in the Justice Department, the FBI, and former Obama White House staffers.

We are discovering wholly corrupt acts every day as the details about the Steele Dossier and the tactics used to frame Trump by political opponents emerge. Is it really so far-fetched to imagine an “October” surprise where Sessions reveals dozens of indictments over this? If he did that, the media would explode and then would be caught in a hard place—“on the ropes,” so to speak, as they have been praising and defending Sessions for months. How could they do an instant about-face and then attack Sessions?  

If this comes to pass, the media would do their absolute best to cast it as a political prosecution of hardworking government officials, but the months of crediting and praising Jeff Sessions would be a difficult obstacle for them to overcome.

The prosecution of persons who helped cover up Hillary Clinton’s misdeeds and gave immunity to witnesses, who never were going to testify, would be incidental to the prosecution of those who weaponized our intelligence agencies for political purposes, leaked confidential information, and conspired against Donald Trump.

Is this just a “Q” inspired pipe dream that lingers in the minds of Trump supporters? Consider, too, the extremes to which his opponents have gone to in their hatred of him. Or is hoping that the military will stage a coup par for the course in the socialist loving media these days?

Remember when liberals fought hard for the right of freedom of speech? Today, instead, they sit by and watch as social media giants and universities work to purge any views that do not comport with progressive dogma. Indeed some claim there is no right to speak anything that isn’t progressive.

Might we see Sessions at work in October and know then that Trump was once again masterfully manipulating his opponents and the media to achieve his goals?  Consider again the words Sessions used as he allegedly fought back against Trump: “While I am Attorney General, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations. I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action . . .” Couldn’t you apply that just as easily to what U.S. Attorney John Huber is investigating?
