Democratic War Room Expands With Plans To Scrutinize, Stop Hundreds Of Trump Appointees #WAR

48

It’s time for Trump and his administration go on the offense. Playing defense is not a strategy, it’s a recipe for failure. No war is ever won on the defense. And the left-wing is at war with us.

It’s time for Trump’s Department of Justice to go after and prosecute Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett and the Muslim Brotherhood groups awaiting indictment on terror funding. Throw open investigations into Obama and his crew for aiding and abetting America’s worst enemies. An investigation of George Soros and the funding of groups who seek to overthrow the government is long overdue.

The Soros-funded Center for American Progress and their spin machine, Think Progress, which employs pro-terrorist ex-bloggers such as Zaid Jilani, is leading the insurgency; its Editor-in-Chief helped fundraise for Hamas. (More here.)

Center for American Progress was founded by John Podesta. Need I say more?

Basta.

Even Buzzfeed (!) is reporting on the treason masquerading as opposition.

Democratic War Room Expands With Plans To Scrutinize Hundreds And Hundreds Of Trump Appointees

The Center for American Progress’ anti-Trump hub brings on a new communications director as it plans to “expand indefinitely,” slow-walk GOP efforts in Congress, and craft a blueprint for a new “economic narrative” with broad Democratic appeal.

Ruby Cramer, BuzzFeed News Reporter,  March. 2, 2017:

Democrats at the Center for American Progress estimate that President Trump still has upwards of 900 second- and third-tier appointees to push through the Senate.

And in the liberal think tank’s new “war room,” the objective is to scrutinize each one, from assistant to more minor federal agency employees, raising questions about qualifications and conflicts of interest that promise to tie up floor time, bog down Republican efforts in Congress, and delay Trump’s legislative agenda.

The political arm of the Center for American Progress, called the CAP Action Fund, is one of the central entities in Democrats’ sprawling effort to oppose Trump.

In an interview on Thursday, the group’s senior strategic adviser, Adam Jentleson, outlined an ambitious and wide-reaching plan to vet nominees, push for an independent investigation into the administration’s ties to Russian intelligence, direct grassroots activists to protests and town halls, produce policy analyses on Trump’s proposals, and build out a growing team researchers and press operatives in what Jentleson described as a plan to “expand indefinitely” in the Trump era.

“We’ll never reach a point where we say, ‘OK, that’s enough,’” he said.

This week, CAP brought on Chris Hayden to help lead the war room as communications director, Jentleson said. Hayden has worked extensively in states that favor Trump, most recently in Missouri for Jason Kander, a national upstart who narrowly lost a race last year for U.S. Senate, as well as for the state’s sitting senator, Claire McCaskill, and the former U.S. senator from North Carolina, Kay Hagan.

Earlier this year, the group also hired Corey Ciorciari, formerly of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, as the war room’s policy and research director, filling out a still growing team that now comprises about 20 of CAP’s 340 or so employees.

Most of Trump’s top cabinet nominees have been approved — and will continue to be, given the Republican majority in the Senate. But Jentleson, who last served as a senior aide to former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, said CAP will keep casting scrutiny on the president’s lower rungs of government appointees.

“Those are the people who are going to be actually writing and implementing the policy,” Jentleson said. “It’s a tremendous number of people. For them to be at all feasible, the vast, vast majority of them have to pass by unanimous consent, so all it takes is one objection to slow them down.”

Trump has already faced what some call a historic delay in his confirmation push. The CAP strategy could help detain Republicans even longer, holding major legislative priorities in limbo. “Floor time is a finite resources,” Jentleson said.

Originally founded as a progressive think tank in 2003, CAP officials have also sought to use the “institutional knowledge” of the organization’s large cadre of policy experts to produce what Jentleson called “razor sharp policy analysis that impacts the debate and that really helps drive and sustain grassroots energy,” citing two recent studies on Wall Street gains and middle-class losses under Trump.

The anti-Trump focus marks something of a readjustment for an organization that has spent most of its existence under the two-term presidency of Barack Obama, and comes at a time when what unifies the Democratic Party most is opposition to the president, rather than singular policy aims or a shared economic message.

But the shift is also a return to CAP’s roots. The think tank and political group was formed opposite George W. Bush, and amid the liberal activism of the 2000s. “It thrives in the opposition,” said Jentleson, who has worked at CAP twice before.

During the Bush years, CAP put together a policy blueprint, Strategic Redeployment 2.0, for Democrats who opposed the war in Iraq war but wanted a strong military posture. Jentleson said the CAP war room will now look to do the same with a new “economic narrative,” attempting to reframe progressive policy into a message that will be as salient on the left as for “moderates, Independents, and soft Democrats.”

The promise to play a key role across the party’s opposition effort — from research to protests and policy — is a tall order for CAP’s war room, still in the process of hiring researchers and a press team under Hayden. (“I hate to use ‘building an airplane as we fly it,’ because it’s a cliche,” Jentleson said. “But it’s really true.”)

The month before the inauguration, the group emerged as one of several entities hoping to help lead the anti-Trump efforts Democrats refer to as “the resistance.”

Others include the former Clinton super PAC, Priorities USA, and the constellation of liberal groups headed by operative David Brock, including American Bridge, which has launched its own opposition research-based war room alongside CAP’s.

Apart from the Washington-based organizations working directly with Senate leaders, a number of activist-based groups have sprung up, leading weekly protests and spear-heading a more aggressive movement to pressure Democrats to take a harder line on Trump — even threatening incumbents with primary challengers.

But Jentleson said most of the groups are working together so far. Many are led by strategists who worked with one another for years in Washington, he said, ticking off names like Bradley Beychock at Brock’s groups and Brian Fallon at Priorities, who used to sit next to Jentleson every day when they both worked in the Senate.

“I have not yet run into an instance where there were too many cooks in the kitchen,” Jentleson said. “It’s people who have very long relationships. You haven’t seen any backbiting.”

    What you have here is Watergate on steroids. A sitting President and his administration were conducting an intelligence operation against a presidential campaign, during an election.

    Later, after not having discovered anything actionable, they started to leak their data to disrupt the subsequent Administration. This is YUGE and each miss fire on the Russia issue just builds that case against them.

    Barak Hussein Obama, the pro Muslim Brotherhood elements in the CIA and STATE (some Ds some also Rs) are engaged in a coup d’etat against the elected president of the USA.

    This is sedition.

    This is like when the Democrats lost to Lincoln and launched the Confederate Rebellion, which, when quashed morphed into another Democrat Conspiracy, the organising and launching of the KKK

      Good points. Trump must hit back and hard. Expose these rats to the American public at more rallies which bypass the media spin machine. Name names, and organizations, that are plotting against him to make the public fully aware of this evilry.

      • Fern

        Trump has dealt CNN a hammer blow from which they are still reeling. More please.

      • Armaros

        You need to build the case, take the time it takes, make it solid and when hitting, hit hard.

        I am sure Bannon is on top of this.

        But this explains why Trump officials are now talking in Orwellian speak. “Islam is not the problem”
        “Obama was a good pres etc..”

        We are facing the greatest tyranny humanity has ever seen. A shadow deep state of the USA. Run by Marxists, Islamist sympathisers and Iran stooges.

      • Mark Steiner

        Even though the nation has had a decisive change of leadership in the White House, it CANNOT SURVIVE unless a directed, determined effort is exercised as detailed at the top of this article. The enemy in entrenched in all departments of the Federal government. Disloyalty needs to be routed out as well.

        • Rob Porter

          Absolutely! The Obama, Clinton, Jarrett, etc. scum need to be routed. It’s not in Trump’s temperament not to fight back, so I believe this must be brewing. Both Obama and Clinton have been open in their seditious comments, so Trump needs to take off the gloves, forget the kindly words and action following his victory and knock the stuff out of Obama and Clinton in particular. Then he needs silence Soros once and for all.

      Only a civil war to clean out the socialists, communists and illegal aliens will quell these anti-American activities. Rat obama said he would punish the United States and everything he has done has been to support communism.socialism and to injure the U.S.
      We had a Civil War for a lot less in 1861. I guess there are no Americans left.

      • Beverly

        I would call the Obama administration a Marxist administration. If you look at what he himself was doing along with the EPA and the IRS, you will see he wanted to control but not to own which is Marxism. Though I think most Democrats themselves are Communist.

        • Craig

          True. Rat obama was a true Marxist, but his handoff to hard-line communist hillary would have been the final nail in the U.S. coffin. Thankfully, some of us woke up.

      What Pamela says here hits the nail on the head:
      “It’s time for Trump’s Department of Justice to go after and prosecute Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett and the Muslim Brotherhood groups awaiting indictment on terror funding. Throw open investigations into Obama and his crew for aiding and abetting America’s worst enemies. An investigation of George Soros and the funding of groups who seek to overthrow the government is long overdue.”
      What is occurring is sedition.
      After his victory, Donald Trump was far too charitable and conciliatory toward Clinton and Obama. It’s evident now that they interpreted that as a sign of weakness, so now are trying to cut his throat. He needs to wake up and hit back like a whirlwind that will have them reeling. I cannot believe that Steve Brannon is not recommending this.

      • soldiermom11

        Thats why hes going afer his department of justice. Trump needs to hire a snake to get rid of the rats. How about somebody like Tony Shaffer to nail the btards? Say its a consulting job on international affairs and then close in on security for the Trump administration.

    The best defence is a good offence, charge as few democrats with treason, embezzlement and surgery. Put the ball in the democrat’s court. Every few weeks charge a few more, force them into a defensive role, they have taken the offence, that is not good, a siege mentality never lead to victory.

    PRONTO!

  • Mrs. Chief

    I wonder if President Trump can give temporary appointments & temporarily appoint everyone he wants as heads of cabinets & other positions until the democrats are finished their slow walking to final approval?

  • felix1999

    AS long as Trump stays focused and MOVES forward on his agenda, he will get EIGHT years. His AGENDA is what people Like. after that speech, 4 out f 5 legal Americans LIKE and AGREED with Trump according to a poll. Even 78% of CNN’s AUDIENCE liked what Trump said so if he DELIVERS on it. smears and lies won’t resonate with voters. RESULTS resonate with VOTERS.

    When people are under investigation are all their bank accounts frozen immediately? Then I say write up the papers and investigate all of them at once. If there are no bank accounts to work from, then Ovomit can’t get anywhere.

    It stands to reason, or treason for that matter. The Obhammud administration was funneling massive amounts of money into influencing the national elections in Macedonia and Israel, according to Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch. This, in spite of the fact it is a clear violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. Since they and the Soros groups they funded through the long-corrupt United State Agency for International Development (USAID) don’t let the law get in the way, it is time to hit them over the head with it.

    Problem is the Dems have been allowed to get away with blue murder for so long, starting with inserting an imposter in the WH eight years ago, they have become ever bolder and more ambitious by the year. Now their treachery has grown to the point it threatens to utterly consume America and when it has run its course, turn it into a full blooded islamo-fascist hell hole. If it is not thwarted by decisive action.

  • joe1429

    CNN… “Trump is making false allegations against obama” These libtards do not even know yet if they are true or not

  • Pastor C

    While I agree with every point/solution Pamela made in the preface to this article, unfortunately, I don’t believe we’ll ever see any of the ‘push-back’ actually happen-despite the fact these unconstitutional, seditious and treasonous actions, and many others, constitute a not-so-silent coup against our nation’s government.

    To my knowledge, the depth, magnitude and parameters of this sort of ‘resistance’ i unprecedented in American history. If not, someone please advise…

    What other president conspired against his successor to raze the nation by organizing and superintending a shadow government?

    Why has this guy, still, not been arrested?

    Folks, this just may be the final conflict between those who seek to secure the future of our Republic (as we knew/know it) and those who seek her total ‘transformation.’ The deliberate, perpetual paralysis employed as a tactic/strategy to undermine the Constitutional functions of government is, on its face, sedition and treasonous.

    If the Trump administration aggressively fights this pervasive and demonic insurgency, the nation survives. If he doesn’t (being hindered and undermined by RINOs at every turn) she will, surely, perish! This is nothing less than a life or death matter for the Unites States of America!

    Desperate times, do indeed, call for desperate measures. We have, already, reached the ‘tipping point’ where either Constitutional law, and the courage to uphold it prevail, or outright anarchy!

    If the Trump administration is not, immediately, purged of Barry’s loyalists, and is not willing to do exactly as Ms.Geller recommends, America stands no chance of even surviving much less being ‘great again.’

    This present conflict is no less serious than I’ve described and critically determinative of what lies ahead for the future of the greatest Republic to ever arise in the annals of human history.
