(Aug. 24, 2018) — An editorial by Max Boot published Wednesday at The Washington Post contends, given that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted on eight counts of tax evasion and other federal crimes Tuesday, followed by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s “guilty” plea to allegedly making illegal campaign contributions presumably at Trump’s request, that Trump is an “illegitimate president whose election is tainted by fraud.”

Boot refers to August 21 as “Terrible Tuesday” given that both figures associated with Trump were charged with federal crimes and either convicted or admitted to guilt.

Manafort’s charges stemmed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, assumed from the FBI in May of last year, into whether or not anyone in the Trump campaign “colluded” with Kremlin operatives to tip the election in Trump’s favor. However, Russian “collusion” did not arise during the course of Manafort’s three-week trial and guilty verdict on eight of 18 counts announced on Tuesday.

Cohen’s charges arose after he testified privately last year to members of Congress in the midst of their investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.  Cohen reportedly claimed at the time that neither Trump nor he knew in advance of a meeting between a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr. in June 2016.

Last month, however, Cohen changed his story to say that “Donald Trump knew and approved of a meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer,” according to USA Today.

Evidence of crimes on Cohen’s part reportedly unearthed by Mueller’s team was turned over to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, who chose to prosecute. The bulk of Cohen’s guilty plea covers alleged crimes disassociated from the Trump campaign, the White House, or the Kremlin.

Cohen’s admission to making “illegal” campaign contributions has been said by several legal analysts on the political left and right to be a “non-crime,” leaving some asking why Cohen would have agreed to the admission and why his attorney, longtime Clinton acolyte Lanny Davis, would have advocated for it.

When asked during an interview recorded Wednesday and aired Thursday with Fox News’s Ainsley Earhardt why Cohen would have agreed to such an admission, Trump responded, “Because he makes a better deal when he uses me…This whole thing about flipping…everything’s wonderful, and then they get ten years in jail and they ‘flip’ on whoever the next highest one is or as high as you can go…But if somebody defrauded a bank and he’s going to get ten years in jail or 20 years in jail, but if you can say something bad about Donald Trump and you’ll go down to two years or three years, which is the deal he made, in all fairness to him, most people are going to do that.”

Trump said he has seen people “flip” for decades and believes “it almost ought to be illegal.”  He added that the money paid to two women apparently to buy their silence in the run-up to the 2016 election was rendered out of his personal funds, not campaign donations.

In his editorial, Boot opined that “If Manafort had been found not guilty, it would have been a massive blow to Mueller. Because he was found guilty, it is a blow to Trump.”  Manafort led the Trump campaign for approximately 100 days, while others such as Corey Lewandowski and Kellyanne Conway lasted much longer.

Thus far, Mueller’s investigators have announced no findings of “collusion” between Trump and/or any of his campaign aides, and Trump has insisted that the Mueller operation is nothing more than a “rigged witch hunt.” Boot naturally refuted that assertion.

Relying on statements made during Davis’s MSNBC interview on Wednesday, Boot went from Cohen’s guilty plea to Davis’s reported assertion that his client could provide information to Mueller that Trump had foreknowledge about unspecified “hacking” and “may be able provide the ‘smoking gun’ evidence showing that Trump himself gave the go-ahead to collusion with the Kremlin.” [sic]

And Cohen may only have begun implicating the president. Davis said on MSNBC that Cohen would be happy to share other incriminating information with the special counsel, including “knowledge about the computer crime of hacking and whether or not Mr. Trump knew ahead of time about that crime and even cheered it on.” This would seem to vindicate an earlier leak that Cohen may be able provide the “smoking gun” evidence showing that Trump himself gave the go-ahead to collusion with the Kremlin.

“What deal did you cut?” MSNBC’s Chuck Todd asked Davis, to which Davis responded, “I have no idea.  He pled guilty. In a corroborative statement with the federal prosecutors, he admitted at the direction and coordination with his client, Donald Trump — not named, but that’s who is referred to — this is the wording that the prosecutors and Michael Cohen agreed he would say to the judge under oath, at the direction and coordination of the candidate…” at which time Todd cut him off with another question.

As with countless other “journalists” and editorialists at The Post, The New York Times, Fox News Channel, and other mainstream monoliths, Boot is ignoring the likely “illegitimacy” of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, whose only publicly-proffered documentation, including a purported “long-form birth certificate,” has been found fraudulent by a 5+-year criminal investigation, evidence from which has been turned over to “federal authorities.”

When those findings were made public beginning with a March 1, 2012 presser, The Washington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, Fox News and other mainstream outlets were nowhere to be found.

On April 27, 2011, the Obama White House released what it said was a PDF scan of a certified copy of Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate from the Hawaii Department of Health. Obama claims a birth at the Kapiolani Women and Children’s Medical Center in Honolulu on August 4, 1961, a claim never corroborated by the hospital.

Originally, Obama was reported by UPI to have been born at the Queens Medical Center, after which it altered the text to say that Kapiolani was Obama’s birth hospital without explanation.

After a number of graphics experts declared the White House image to be a forgery, then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio commissioned his “Cold Case Posse” to conduct a preliminary investigation, primarily to put his constituents at ease about Obama’s qualifications for the 2012 presidential election. However, after several days of analysis, CCP lead investigator and former detective Mike Zullo was forced to inform Arpaio that the image was problematic.

At the same time, Zullo announced that Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form, generated by the Selective Service System (SSS) to FOIA requesters since late 2008, is also fraudulent, terming it a “hard-copy forgery.”

Following the release of the purported birth certificate image, Obama gave a short press conference during which he claimed the image to provide “additional information about the site of my birth.”

At a second press conference on July 17, 2012, Zullo presented further evidence as to how the birth certificate forgery was created rather than obtained from a real, paper document. Arpaio concluded the presser by stating that the forgery of government documents purportedly belonging to a sitting president of the United States was an urgent matter of “national security,” to which the media again responded with a figurative and collective yawn.

On a radio show last Friday, Zullo revealed that two members of the U.S. intelligence community, over which the mainstream media generally fawns, informed him that it is an “open secret” that Obama could never satisfy the understood requirement that the president must be born in the United States as part of the Constitution’s Article II eligibility criteria.

Based on Zullo’s findings and those of two well-respected forensic analysts that the long-form birth certificate image is a forgery; Zullo’s recent revelation of the “open secret” of Obama’s foreign birth; the alleged involvement, or at a minimum, knowledge, of the CIA and others in the “intelligence community,” an ineligible individual apparently held the office of President of the United States, commanded the U.S. military, led foreign policy, and signed executive orders and congressional bills into “law.”

“It is illegal for an American campaign to accept, or solicit, anything of value from foreign nationals. The law aims to prevent foreign influence in U.S. elections,” touted USAToday on Wednesday.

“In short, there is growing evidence that the president is, to use the word favored by Richard Nixon, “a crook,” Boot crowed in his column.

The “crook” who created and uploaded the birth certificate forgery has not yet been identified, although on several radio shows over the summer, Zullo has stated that “all roads lead to [former CA Director ] John Brennan.”

Some would argue that there is “growing evidence” of a conspiracy to place a foreign national in the White House, apparently to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” and, now that his successor is Donald Trump and not Hillary Clinton, an equally-strong conspiracy to remove him from office.

Some would argue, because Trump was the first public persona to raise the Obama “birth certificate” issue to the national level, that he poses an existential threat to the “crooks” who knew that Obama was “an immigrant,” as stated by former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson in 2008, yet thwarted the truth from emerging with daily, purposeful intent.

  1. Thank you James Carter. I am now there, at the once unthinkable age of 75. Got to stick around to see the ultimate outcome of America’s fight for survival. I vote, I contact useless members of Congress and I comment on line on current events……I never thought I would see America fighting for her future because of, among other things, the betrayal of those we trusted to uphold the Constitution.
    Trump is our last, best hope.
    And Gary Wilmott, thank for your follow-up to my post on Sessions and why he protects Obama, I value your opinion and knowledge of the Obama fraud.
    Enjoy the day.

  2. MUST READ: “The Russia Hoax” by attorney Gregg Jarrett ($15.99 at Costco) >>>

    if today’s government-citizens (James The-Fix-Is-In Comey, Strzok, COC Holder, Hillary RICO Clinton, BO[ZO] and BIG MIKE, Lyin’ Lynch, Susan Lie-a-Minute Rice, McCabe, John Passport-Pirate Brennan, et al, et al, et al) will aggressively conspire to remove a Constitutional President Trump, they will surely continue to conspire to rob some 323,000,000 duped American private-citizens of their full rightful identity-knowledge-property of a non-Constitutional presIDent, narrative-named “[Soetoro] Obama II”.


    STOP fail time>< GO jail time

  3. I am inclined to agree with Bob68 soon to be Bob75. I think Sessions wanted the AG job to protect himself and others who willfully turned a blind eye to Obama identity fraud and unconstitutional usurpation of the presidency. I actually think that Sessions would be more than happy to see Trump removed – though I am inclined to think that it is Mr. Sessions who is going to lose his job first. What Sessions MAY NOT realize is that Trump has already been provided the evidence of aka Obama’s identity fraud and phony life narrative. Very interesting. There is no doubt that Sessions is not acting in a fair and reasonable manner and he and Rosenstein are clearly obstructing investigations of the Clintons and the Deep State which in turn protects aka Obama. Also no thanks to the establishment Paul Ryan. As for all the moronic talk about impeachment, what crime has Trump committed while in office? NONE. And yet aka Obama was trampling the Constitution on a daily basis as he nurtured and cultivated the Deep State corruption and cheered on Hillary Clinton’s treasonous self-serving activities in the State Dept. All of these miscreants in the FBI, DOJ, CIA etc need to be rounded up, indicted and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I have no doubt that an honest and thorough investigation will eventually expose the fraud who calls himself Barack Hussein Obama. Question is will we ever get the justice we deserve? It would appear that Trump and a few patriots in the House are all that stands in the way of continued business as usual by our so-called representatives and the rabid fake-news frauds in the media. Vote like your life depended on it in November! The
    Republicans must hold the House or all of these criminal activities and corruption will not only be covered up but it will as I said be business as usual. America is truly at the crossroads.

  4. To Mr. Chris Farrell – two issues.

    1) I tried to mobilize my entire wishful thinking in order to swallow the tale your presented here about Session’s secret mission, but I could not. My reading of the reality is identical to that of Bob68.

    2) Even if everything you envision comes to be true in some foreseeable future: how will it be better than the “political life” in the USSR? USSR partially exposed Stalin three years after his death; they deposed Krushchev when he had vacation at his dacha in Crimea, and so they did with Gorbachev… Isn’t it great?

    To Mr. Bob68 (soon to be 75: Congratulations and many happy returns!)

    Concerning the phrase that you coined, here is my comment which I keep posting.

    America behaves as though some improvements in economy (achieved by Trump) may “compensate” for …

    – a crime too big to acknowledge (in a “beacon of humanity”, daring to restore its greatness), and …
    – a sin too big to repent (in the nation shouting “In God we trust”!)

    However the only consequence of the sin too big to repent may be the punishment too big to comprehend! TREMBLE you, fallen, stupid, unrepentant America forgetting about God’s judgment!

  5. Just a few more coincidences for M.C. Duff, from Don Fredrick:
    For many more coincidences M.C. Duff can order Don Fredrick’s book and read a few reviews here:
    And, for an even more comprehensive list of coincidences go here:

    Obama’s fake life history fell apart years ago.

  6. M.C. Duff:

    And I suppose Obama was also speaking metaphorically when, during a 2008 interview on CNN, he replied to George Stephanopolos: “You’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith.”

    And I suppose Obama didn’t write or never read his author bio in the pamphlet his publicist disseminated for 16 years, which said he was born in Kenya until shortly after he announced his candidacy for president when, wonder of wonders, someone FINALLY noticed it and changed it to say he was born in Hawaii. Convenient coincidence, eh?

    I’m sure others here can add to those two without blinking an eye.

  7. Great article Sharon.

    As noted the issue being revealed about the FBI and DOJ goes back to these departments (staffed with our employees) not dealing with Barry’s Eligibility. With the Deep State (run by the FBI and DOJ) coming full force against Donald Trump we will soon find out if he has the guts to take them on. Trump keeps threatening to “get involved”, and declassify the documents, but will he step up to the plate? It appears that he will need to either “get involved” or get out of the way and let the Deep State continue to corrupt our nation.

    An interesting question is: with all this talk about how bad Russia is, how is our Federal Government any different than the rulers in the Kremlin?

    This is my belief on why Sessions is acting as he is. Call it an opinion based of years of observation:

    I hope you’re right about Sessions. I think he’s protecting the Deep State because he and the rest of Congress became part of it when they sat by and did/said nothing in 2009 to even try to stop Obama’s usurpation of America’s presidency. They all allowed Obama to be sworn-in without objection, and they were all given the opportunity to object just a few days before it would be too late. Of course no one wanted to be called racist. At that moment Congress became locked into protecting Obama, forever, both parties, because they all violated their sworn oath to protect the Constitution, and they effectively gave America’s military to the enemy. Sessions and others in Congress were, over the years, visited by people very knowledgeable about Obama’s identity fraud and his ineligibility. Some in Congress listened and said they would do…something…but they never did. The crime committed by those complicit in the Obama fraud was so huge that it was/is, “too big to prosecute”, and on this issue the, “good guys,” in Congress are mostly the same as the bad guys. During Obama’s 8 years Republican leadership actually told him he would not be impeached…….and he was never investigated by Congress. The reason was they already knew the truth and were never going to do anything which could reveal that truth……to protect themselves.

    Back to Sessions, he came out early in favor of Trump and had the qualifications to be AG. Sessions successfully got himself appointed AG and immediately began impeding the effort to get to the truth about the Obama fraud… protecting Obama and anyone who could lead to Obama. He seems like a plant by the swamp to protect the many people who committed the biggest crime in history against American citizens and her Constitution when they failed to do their job, and allowed the usurpation of America’s presidency. That was and still is a big deal. One of the many excuses Congress gave for doing nothing was because acting on this would cause turmoil in our nation…..looks to me we will get the turmoil, with or without the truth about Obama…the difference will be who wins after the dust settles. I think the real reason is they fear what would happen to them for their failure to act, as required by their sworn oath, to prevent the Obama fraud.
    On the other hand, it you are correct and this is all some kind of elaborate set-up getting ready to drop the hammer on them all…that will make me very happy and I will eat all the crow I can find, apologize to Sessions profusely, etc.. Until that happens I’m sticking to my original thoughts…..which began in 2009 when I noticed from contacting members of Congress that they not only were not going to do anything about Barry, they pretended the evidence they were presented did not exist.
    Sorry, another long post. Call this a theory or whatever…but it seems logical to me.
    Bob68 (who will soon be Bob75)

  9. A few years ago a brother of mine was very ill and had had three operations. Another brother was discussing with a doctor his condition. The doctor opined, “He just won’t die”. With that said, my brother replied, then “save him”. There was a fourth operation and my brother is still thriving.

    So too it is with Obummer’s usurpation. Because of endless evidence and the work of many, this issue is still a “work in progress.” Just as the Jewish people have a saying, “Never again,” many of us will continue to fight, strive, and have an accounting of Obama and his crew that assisted him.

    As I have seen pictures and videos of Obama, he doesn’t seem to be aging well. He seems stressed… Could it be that his clock is ticking…? In the meantime, I give Trump some credit and sense he’ll take action on Obama when the timing is right. The lame GOP, media, and Congress neglected to address Barry…

  10. I think that Sessions is playing his role perfectly.
    He has to establish an image that can not be impugned as being partisan when he appoints a special prosecutor to investigate the Manchurian Muslim from Mombasa, or as his mother listed his name in one of her U.S. passports as ‘Soebarkah.’
    Nobody will be able to say that Sessions is kow-towing to President Trump when former sheriff Joe Arpaio is ‘Senator Joe’ and he presents the findings of his volunteer Cold Case Posse (CCP) investigation, (I was present at the March 1st, 2012 presser with special permission from Mike Zullo, the commander of then Sheriff Joe’s CCP), into Obama’s suspicious multiple birth narratives and manufactured electronic and physical documentation used to authenticate his purported constitutional eligibility to be the legal sitting president of the United States.

    Soon President Trump will have the votes on the Supreme Court to have Obama held accountable for the criminal usurpation of the office of POTUS.

    Most importantly the sitting Supreme Court justice who represented Obama in multiple challenges to his constitutional eligibility to be president will of course have to recuse herself from participation in any hearing of any cases related to the matter for obvious conflicts of interest.

    Never forget that when ‘Q-Anon’ could be trusted he (they) communicated to us to “Trust Sessions.”

    President Trump is saving Sessions for the only case that matters. It is a military strategy and President Trump was educated in a military academy during his most formative years.

    Sessions is passing on a lot of targets because he is following orders to do so.

  11. After the 2008-2016 usurpation which is being swept under the rug up to now, one would think that the media and politicians of this shameless nation would at least evade usage of the words “crook”, “illegitimate president”, and similar (just like they evade the word “rope” in a well known joke); evade such words just to be on the safe side; just to keep deflecting attention from the most scandalous event in American history.

    That is, if the media and politicians had some remnants of common sense and shame. They do not, and American sheeple does not. That is why all that saber rattling about impeachment of Trump is OK – while the 2008-2016 impostor is still at large in close neighborhood of Trump.

    The most grotesque side of it is that Trump keeps sustaining this farce! Since 2016 Trump became an accomplice and participant of this farce because he capitulated to his handlers humiliatingly acknowledging the legality of Obama. It was a humiliation and disgrace. Trump supposedly did it in order to get peace, but he got disgrace and war on him anyway.

    This sinful, unrepentant nation lives as though the Judgement would never come, but it will.
