Trump's Storm Is Lashing The Halls Of Corruption

Written by Lord Feverstone of Dystopia, USA

About two months ago, I wrote an article here on Zero Hedge entitled, "Trump Is Slow-Playing His Cards In This Game Of Deep State Poker."

It was met with some understandable skepticism, but in light of recent political developments, it may be worth your second perusal.

My conjecture then was that President Trump was setting up his enemies by utilizing a rope-a-dope strategy; feigning weakness while his administration worked covertly to rid Washington of decades of political corruption.  

At the time, I called it a sting operation. Well, it appears Trump may have had another term in mind.

"The calm before the storm."

Since that article, and since Trump's seemingly cryptic statement, we have been witness to the following:

  • Clinton and Obama friend Harvey Weinstein's disgraceful fall from his perch atop Hollywood.
  • Confirmation that James Comey sought to exonerate Hillary Clinton before even interviewing her.
  • Fusion GPS executives invoking the Fifth Amendment, their lawyers fighting, red of tooth and claw, to keep Congressional investigators from combing through Fusion's bank records.
  • A slate of Project Veritas videos embarrassing the legacy media.
  • Julian Assange tweeting out another set of hash keys.
  • A new investigation of the FBI's flubbing of the Clinton e-mail scandal.
  • The Podesta Group coming under the scrutiny of one Robert Mueller. (I published a crazy theory on my website in June about Mueller that seems less crazy now.) 
  • New revelations about Uranium One and the subsequent announcement of a Congressional probe. Now we await the entrance of a mystery whistleblower who just had his non-disclosure agreement lifted so that he can give testimony.
  • The declassification of the JFK files.
  • News that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Trump dossier; a story that amazingly broke first at an oligarch-owned, globalist news organization.

I don't know about you, but I don't believe in that many coincidences in that short a period of time. It rather strikes me as coordinated effort.

If it is indeed synchronized, then Trump's Storm is more akin to a hurricane taking direct aim at the Clinton Foundation and the Obama White House of Corruption than mere gusts of hot air.

What's left standing at tide's recession remains to be seen.

While these recent events are encouraging to those of us who've railed against the unpunished crimes of our political overlords, we cannot be passive observers.

Now is the time to impress upon our elected leaders that justice delayed is justice denied. If we fail to do so, political, cultural, and economic corruption will destroy the United States as surely as it did the Roman and Ottoman Empires.

We'll never again have this kind of momentum, folks. We just need to be opportunistic enough to harness it and optimistic enough to believe it really is possible this time.

[Swing by for our storm party, if you're so inclined. There's no beer, but there should be plenty of steamed Swamp Critters on the menu soon.]

If nothing happens, something WILL happen in November next year. I suspect a lot of establishment congress critters will be shoved out. I also suspect that should criminal charges be filed, there might be a number of unexpected heart attacks, strokes, and plane crashes.

I have to agree with this article.   The whole time sequence that is unravelling looks too planned.   It would appear that:   -   there has been a long period of "appearing weak" to see who piles on, so that it is clear who TPTB insider players are   -   the choice of the russian uranium scandal as a breakpoint is a good one --- one which has clear straightforward evidence, broken laws, and need only be recognized and turned into properly framed charges   -   unravelling other HRC scandals (other pay-for-play, security violations, or worse) will develop as confirming evidence is revealed from investigating uranium one   -   and yes, the left is acting very frightened and very panicky. I think there is indeed some well played chess going on here.   Popcorn, please. (edit:   my only real question is, will Obama be implicated before this is all over?)

We haven't ;-)I think more than anything what is really "changing" the tone & atmosphere is simply, governments, the authorities, the state need..."the law"...(whatever that winds up meaning at any given time) to be respected so "they" can maintain control.What they saw happening is a break down of that concept, with all the coverups, known felons walking around free while we are locked up, our property & wealth seized and our names sullied, just because "they" ceased being..."law"...that we can respect. They just can't have that the..."anarchy" lack of respect, they understand that at the base of their being, not to mention it puts most of them out of a job, perks & pensions. Now to be honest, I don't need "law" or "law enforcement" but I understand a lot of people do, the weak/infirmed/pacifist (whatever) so...we...will go back to "a law" that can be respected at some point but I would just like to point out......after Hurricane Irma many laws & regs were suspended down here in Florida by Gov Scott to the benefit of the people and amazingly we survived...lmao!Which just goes to show what the nature of most laws & regs are, simply a device, a concept, to extract wealth or inhibit freedom.//////As an addendum, I got to looking around (because when something like Hillary & the DNC are being shown as the lying, corrupt sacks of shit they are) something ELSE is always happening to keep the eye on this shiny object and not that "ELSE"...and I think this is it..."Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the IRS owed the groups an apology after years of poor treatment and even longer refusal to concede bad behavior. He placed blame on “the last administration,” saying the targeting that went on under President Obama “was wrong and should never have occurred.”One of the settlement agreements, filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., officially admits that the IRS singled out groups because of their political beliefs, in defiance of the law. The other settlement, in a class-action lawsuit in Ohio, includes a “generous” payout to more than 400 groups snared, according to a lawyer involved."… we already knew had taken place has now been admitted to.See how that works?Now, Trump needs to fire Koskinen's sorry ass so he can be more properly..."deposed" ;-)

The problem with the fines and "apologies" is that the damage done isn't being undone.  IRS targetting played a huge role in Obama being re-elected.  Since we can't turn back time, there needs to be punishment for ALL of the beneficiaries of these scandals. The apologies mean nothing other than to historians in future generations.  The fines are paid with freakin tax dollars!!!!  That's my freakin money and I didn't do a freakin thing.  If this passes for justice, no thanks.  Look me up on my boat somewhere in the Caribbean.

Those that willingly break the law do so because they feel the law is inept and incapable of holding them to acount, and none more so than those at the top. And for those who do accept they might be caught, the punishment is not a deterrent as the rewards are far too great. Politics is the worse for as you say, you can't take that shit back...not the office, not the bills that reinforce dependencies, none of it. Look at Obamacare for example. They are completely incapable of reversing it even if they think it is the worst bill in history as they CANNOT remove entitlements.....they can never stop feeding the bears, because the bears will eat THEM.

You are right of course francis.It is a judicial farce and a gross miscarriage of justice that when someone gets caught stealing, the monetary punishment for the crime is found in the VICTIMS bank account.With great power & authority comes great trust from those under that authority, abuse it and the punishment should be severe.So as to inhibit the urge to abuse that authority.We now know Holly Paz & Lois Lerner abused their positions of authority. They were not "rogue agents" in Cincinnati, they coordinated their efforts and John Koskinen committed perjury before Congress trying to cover it up.The punishment should always fit the crime, their assets should be seized, they made destitute and a lifetime ban from ANY government services like EBT, rent vouchers etc...cast aside, they can stay and become beggars or leave the country, their choice.I also see Trump is partially on top of this, announcing yesterday that Koskinen is gone next month, better late than never but still ;-)"President Trump made it official on Thursday that embattled IRS Commissioner John Koskinen will be out of a job next month."…

Took a course recently where scientific data was presented that reinforces your point. There is a high correlation between an honest citizenry and the general prosperity of a society.  Now, whether enforcing "the law" on the DC mafia will make them honest citizens again remains to be seen.  I have my doubts because (((they))) who control the fraudulent petrodollar system will continue to fund degenerate politicians.  We need an honest/hard money system again if we are to return to an honest society."The appearance of the law must be upheld, especially while it's being broken!"-Boss Tweed - Gangs of New York

You forgot the bloated pensions that will be the trigger that brings this whole thing down, Trump's "successes" or no.  Or how about the fortunes built by rent-seekers off the backs of corrupt laws and stolen tax dollars?  Are we getting that money back?The most valuable commodity on the planet, and one that can never be paid back, is time.  These criminals have stolen years of life and opportunity from millions of people.  Can that ever be repaid?

The entire Washington Mob has been pushing against Trump. It is amazing he has achieved anything. And the corrupt Media continues to eat their own shit.  Yum, yum people have some. it is delicious.I couldn' help but note that Tuck was cucked by some stupid Dirty Noxious Criminals shill- some bald combination of Mr. Magoo and Daffy Duck, quacking about impeaching Trump while diverting from the topic at hand- Clinton's trolling for bribes from the Russians.The first question should have been, " What is in the interest of the United States to sell ANY Uranium, business or otherwise, to her rival Russia.?"

You are Chumbawamba.  You are a maroon (sic).Without Trump's election, none of this would have ever surfaced and we would be plunging headlong down the trajectery we were on.Next up should be the Awan Brothers and Debbie Wasserman Schulze.  More than 40 Democrat Congressional offices have compromised computer and phone/email systems.  Trump may be saving this one for next year during election season.

Our elected officials are the ones selling us out, not a Paki IT guy.Wassermans brother is investigating her, so no there too.The investigation into 9/11, Vegas is far more important, but don't expect Trump too do it, his Zionist owners will never let him, and if he disobeyed and did it anyway, they would likely kill him like they did JFK......I'd Dump the Israelis Tomorrow --Ex-CIA Michael Scheuer Tells Congress

You just don't understand the implications of the Awan scandal, and the depth of corrution it exposes.   However, I, and the rest here, really appreciate you joining us a few weeks ago to share all your brilliance, and bringing us up to speed on the things we have been discussing for years.  Thanks for the contribution.

Your third theory with respect to Mueller might otherwise fly, but I think you lack understanding of the nature of the insidious beast justice (in whatever guise) is facing, Lord F.Remember all those right of centres that said Comey was a decent guy? And it turns out he was an abject cunt? Same applies to Mueller. The mistake you make, Sir, is taking for granted that either of the two aforementioned have one shred of honour or morality between them. I labelled Comey last year Guardian of the Deep StateMueller in his current role is the Dem's equivalent to the Wolf in Pulp Fiction. He is pure damage limitation. Except now he himself is quite obviously...err...part of any U-1 investigation (being the big cheese at the FBI at the time). Interesting write-up on him here.Mueller is fucked.He will, like a bad smell does, disappear the first second he gets summoned to testify as the FBI Director who kept this affair under raps from Congress, in collusion with the Obama Administration, the DOJ and, lest we forget, the State Dept way back in 2009.Let me repeat. Mueller is fucked.
