The Controversial New York Times Op-Ed.

Q: What does treason look like? September 9, 2018 (updated from editor A response to anonymous Op-Ed by anonymous. Naturally, everyone wants to know what was said on the Op-Ed.  It’s absolutely insidious, and the side-commentary by the Times is insidious. I think the people of this country should really think, not only about free speech, but who will be speaking it when it’s taken away.  Well,  let me cut to the narrow for you;  It will be the Times.   They love their free speech, and only their free speech, especially when we are hit with a piece that they obviously wrote and are trying to pin it on the administration to get them pointing at one another.  As I said; insidious.  I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration I would really, really hope this is not the work of someone within the administration, because if it is, there are childish larks about in the oval office. I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.  So far, I have to ask why would the Times even give this  a hair’s thread of legitimacy? The Times is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers. We invite you to submit a question about the essay or our vetting process here. Okay, here’s my question:  The better judgement of the writer and the publisher would mean that neither have any credibility whatsoever.  Should we call the authorities and alert  them one of the city’s largest offices is occupied by adolescents? President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader. How stupid could this possibly sound? It’s not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is bitterly divided over Mr. Trump’s leadership. Or even that his party might well lose the House to an opposition hellbent on his downfall. The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.  To do that, is to put yourself above both President and voters.  It is TREASON, and it is absolutely insane. I would know. I am one of them. You are so brave.  About what, I don’t know.  To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous. To be clear?  Obama doesn’t work for the administration.  Does he?  No, no.  President Trump wouldn’t hire an avowed Communist.   But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic. It’s clear someone is acting against the will of the President and voters. That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office   TREASONOUS STATEMENT. The root of the problem is the president’s amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making. So, you go to a rag that tarnishes an entire people’s religion, (the Christian religion),   They regularly print garish, vulgar statements and print gross, perverted portraits, and mock these people with laughter while they want them to be so happy about all these other religious lest they be racist.  What kind of person would this be working for the President?  I wouldn’t want the person to be a low-level janitor. Although he was elected as a Republican, the president shows little affinity for ideals long espoused by conservatives: free minds, free markets and free people. At best, he has invoked these ideals in scripted settings. At worst, he has attacked them outright.   Okay, now we are hitting low-level delusional scum.  This person wouldn’t have the faintest idea about being a conservative. In addition to his mass-marketing of the notion that the press is the “enemy of the people,” President Trump’s impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic. Reading what you just wrote, and to the Times, President Trump, unfortunately, is 110% correct. Don’t get me wrong. There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more. A Communist statement meant to rouse the overwhelming amount of NON-citizens of our country. But these successes have come despite — not because of — the president’s leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective Why did you work for him?  You thought he was Obama? From the White House to executive branch departments and agencies, senior officials will privately admit their daily disbelief at the commander in chief’s comments and actions. Most are working to insulate their operations from his whims. A senior official who doesn’t know how to write “Commander-In-Chief.” Meetings with him veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back. You mean like tightening the border up? “There is literally no telling whether he might change his mind from one minute to the next,” a top official complained to me recently, exasperated by an Oval Office meeting at which the president flip-flopped on a major policy decision he’d made only a week earlier. I would say that about the media and the Demagogues, I mean Democrats(?).  If ever the words “gone fishing,”  had meaning.  They brought it.  Fishing for one fish and catching everything else but a good reputation. The erratic behavior would be more concerning if it weren’t for unsung heroes in and around the White House. Some of his aides have been cast as villains by the media. But in private, they have gone to great lengths to keep bad decisions contained to the West Wing, though they are clearly not always successful. It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room. We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t. The result is a two-track presidency. Please quit.  Please. Take foreign policy: In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations. Astute observers have noted, though, that the rest of the administration is operating on another track, one where countries like Russia are called out for meddling and punished accordingly, and where allies around the world are engaged as peers rather than ridiculed as rivals. Astute observers would also recognize that citizens have come to their senses all over Europe and are now electing people who pledge to protect their sovereignty.   On Russia, for instance, the president was reluctant to expel so many of Mr. Putin’s spies as punishment for the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable. This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state. It’s the work of a rogue state that doesn’t care about the will of the people or votes or the Constitution.  It’s a vile portion of the state. Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over. TREASON.  You should be arrested for TREASON. The bigger concern is not what Mr. Trump has done to the presidency but rather what we as a nation have allowed him to do to us. We have sunk low with him and allowed our discourse to be stripped of civility. The media and you have made little of the murders committed by illegals and refugees and the people you have riled up to murder police officers ,riot in the streets, throwing rocks, starting fires and committing multiple assaults.  But, you must think we are all stupid, you know like we didn’t see it. Senator John McCain put it best in his farewell letter. All Americans should heed his words and break free of the tribalism trap, with the high aim of uniting through our shared values and love of this great nation. The hypocrite rarely sees that they are the embodiment of what they hate. There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first. But the real difference will be made by everyday citizens rising above politics, reaching across the aisle and resolving to shed the labels in favor of a single one: Americans. The writer is a senior official in the Trump administration. Who are you working for?  That’s the question.  I think the New York Times is a Communist Subversive magazine.  We don’t have to gather evidence.  They are giving it to us.  We don’t have to seize the records.  They are giving it us. Part 2 of this post will be much shorter, as we will have it in posted facts. In it, we will show the dangerous hypocrisy and double standards of the left’s take on “free speech.”
