American philosopher and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson is famously quoted as saying “When you strike at a king, you must kill him”. This saying is a truth of such magnitude that it risks being a “reductio ad absurdum” logic fallacy. Not because the argument is absurd, but because the truth of it is so profound that any failure to comprehend the consequences is an absurdity.
Sometime in 2015 a coalition of senior Obama administration officials made the conscience decision to engage in just such an act. They decided that it was in the nations best interests (well, their opinion of what the nation should be anyways) that Hillary Clinton become the next POTUS, and that to that result, they would engage in whatever actions were required to achieve that end goal.
When that goal failed to materialize, all evidence appears to indicate they discovered that the actions they had taken put them in legal jeopardy of serious federal felony prosecution. They had “Struck at the King” but failed to kill him, and consequently were left with no choice but to continue striking at him in the hopes of killing him before the King could retaliate.
Candidate Trump had threatened to take both the US Constitution, and US Law seriously. Given that these senior Obama administration officials had violated numerous federal statutes in their attempt to prevent candidate Trump from becoming President Trump, they had little choice. They then proceeded to do the only thing left to them, they doubled down.
FBI director James Comey violated federal law and apparently conspired with Assistant US Attorney Rod Rosenstein to have a special counsel appointed to investigate the POTUS. Rosenstein then appointed Robert Mueller to investigate whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russian operative to influence the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election.
From a legal standpoint neither Rosenstein nor Mueller should have ever been allowed to instigate or be involved in such an investigation as both of them have clear and indisputable conflicts of interest in the case.
The fact that Mueller is a potential plaintiff in a felony criminal prosecution against Hillary Clinton for her Uranium 1 scandal alone should have made it impossible for Mueller to serve as a special counsel. Striking the King indeed, under what circumstances could the concept “Conflict of Interest” have a more clear cut application, then in destroying the individual who has threatened to have you prosecuted for federal felonies possibly exist?
What is clear is that the CIA/NSA/FBI/DOJ are indeed striking at the King, not, as they insist, because President Trump colluded with any foreign nationals to influence the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election, but because failure to bring down Trump leaves them exposed as having violated numerous federal laws in their own attempt to influence the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election.
Moreover, their strikes at President Trump become ever more transparent and desperate as the extent of their mendacious malfeasance become increasingly apparent.
The willful obstruction of justice.
The abuse of authority.
And the plot to overthrow the lawfully elected presidential administration of Donald J Trump.
Yes, senior Obama administration officials conspired to launch a 18 US Code Sections 2384 & 2385 Coup d’état against the presidential administration of Donald J Trump because the possibility and threat that President Donald J Trump might actually follow through on the threats made by candidate Donald J Trump to have the Obama administration investigated for the illegal surveillance “Wire tapping” of his campaign was far to great to be ignored.
Those CIA/NSA/FBI/DOJ senior administration officials had violated federal law in attempting to procure damaging evidence against candidate Trump in an effort to influence the 2016 presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton. As POTUS, candidate Trump would no longer be restricted to tweeting and complaining about being spied on illegally, he would have the constitutional authority to have those complaints investigated and those responsible prosecuted.
Back to Ralph Waldo Emerson and “When you strike at a king, you must kill him”, the reason you must strike to kill, is that a king has unlimited authority to take retribution not just on the one who struck, but on every individual who in any way shape of form aided and or abetted that individual, and the kings retribution will be fatal to those individuals.
Every one of those Obama administration senior level officials knew for a fact that every single time candidate Donald J Trump made a reference to the “Deep State”, that it was them Trump was referring to, they also knew that if they did not take Trump out before he could do so, that every one of them faced felony criminal prosecution for their role in the illegal surveillance of his campaign and their attempt to illegally influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
