As the political power plays continue to ramp up into the 2018 midterm elections and the battle to drain the swamp in Washington D.C. goes white-hot, President Donald Trump vows to campaign furiously for Republican candidates. He has even suggested that he could potentially show up on the campaign trail as much as seven days a week.
President Trump stated in an interview with Sean Hannity on his radio show – “I am going to work very hard. I’ll go six or even seven days a week when we’re 60 days out, and I will be campaigning for all of these great people that do have a difficult race, and we think we’re going to bring them over the line.”
President Trump has already ramped up his calendar in preparation for busy campaign season in the highly contentious 2018 midterm elections as Republicans work to make sure they maintain control of both the House and the Senate. The president has already increased his campaign activity for Republicans in preparation, hosting a rally in Florida on Tuesday and a rally in Pennsylvania on Thursday.
President Trump is urging his supporters to go to the polls and support Republicans to assist with all hands on deck – “Making America Great Again” and assist him in passing his America first agenda.
Yet the Resistance is alive and well, prepared to do anything in its power to flip control of Congress back to the Democrats in November by any means necessary. Using those anonymous sources they are so famous for the New York Times ran a recent op-ed by an anonymous “senior official in the Trump administration” that has drawn harsh rebuke from both sides of the aisle. Everyone from President Trump himself to Glenn Greenwald to the Los Angeles Times has weighed in highly critical of the author that attempts to use the newspaper to subvert the sitting president.
The author claims to be actively working against President Trump in collusion with other senior officials in what they call a “resistance inside the Trump administration,” has now been labeled everything from a coward, to treasonous, to nonexistent by a variety of individuals from all political spectrums.
President Trump questioned whether the mystery official truly even exists at all and if they do, the NYT should then reveal the author’s identity as a matter of national security.
Does the so-called “Senior Administration Official” really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!

President Trump tweeted – “Does the so-called “Senior Administration Official” really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!”
Instant backlash ensued from all sides.
Jessica Roy of the Los Angeles Times, definitely not a publication that would be considered to be friendly to President Trump by any stretch of the imagination, writes in an op-ed which appeared mere hours after the NYT piece – “No, anonymous Trump official, you’re not ‘part of the resistance.’ You’re a coward”
For context, the full quote in the LA Times states –
“If they really believe there’s a need to subvert the president to protect the country, they should be getting this person out of the White House. But they’re too cowardly and afraid of the possible implications. They hand-wave the notion thusly:
“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.”
How is it that utilizing the 25th Amendment of the Constitution would cause a crisis, but admitting to subverting a democratically elected leader wouldn’t?
If you’re reading this, senior White House official, know this: You are not resisting Donald Trump. You are enabling him for your own benefit. That doesn’t make you an unsung hero. It makes you a coward.”
Meanwhile, left-leaning, Pulitzer Prize Winning Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept, also referred to the author of the NYT op-ed piece as a “coward” whose ideological issues “voters didn’t ratify.”
Many of the complaints from the NYT's anonymous WH coward – not all, but many – are ideological: that Trump deviates from GOP orthodoxy, an ideology he didn't campaign on & that voters didn't ratify. Trump may be a threat but so is this covert coup to impose these policies. pic.twitter.com/4Qf54JJHN9
— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 5, 2018
Greenwald continues stating – “The irony in the op-ed from the NYT’s anonymous WH coward is glaring and massive: s/he accuses Trump of being “anti-democratic” while boasting of membership in an unelected cabal that covertly imposes their own ideology with zero democratic accountability, mandate or transparency.”
So who exactly is this so-called “coward” in the White House? While the author remains anonymous, there are a couple of clues according to https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-09-06/trump-sabateur-op-ed-backfires-la-times-calls-coward-greenwald-unelected-cabal
“For starters, Bloomberg White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs points out that the New York Times revealed that a man wrote the op-ed, which rules out Kellyanne Conway, Nikki Haley, Ivanka and Melania (the latter two being CNN’s suggestions).
NYT tweet suggests the anonymous senior admin official is a man — "he."
The official complains Trump "engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions." https://t.co/HsNLRTCK5d pic.twitter.com/6GRD4Lbdbn

A second clue comes from the language used in the op-ed, and in particular “Lodestar” – a rare word used by Mike Pence in at least one speech. Then again, someone trying to make one think it’s pence would also use that word (which was oddly Merriam-Webster’s word of the day last Tuesday).
A pence-theory hashtag has already emerged to support this theory; #VeepThroat
This is an interesting theory using an interesting clue. "Lodestar" is, in fact, a very unusual word. So unusual that if I wanted someone to wonder if I were Mike Pence, I might use it. Or, perhaps, if I were someone who worked with Pence and picked up the word as a result. https://t.co/bruo7gsVb8

Are people seriously entertaining the idea that Mike Pence himself wrote that op-ed? Based on the word “lodestar”? Come on.

“Given the Op-Ed’s praise of the late Senator John McCain, never-Trumper and Iraq War sabre-rattler Bill Kristol tweeted that it was Kevin Hassett, the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Of course, Kristol and whoever wrote the op-ed are ideologically aligned, so one might question why he would voluntarily work against this person.”
"John McCain put it best….We will always have his example—a lodestar for restoring honor to public life & our national dialogue. Mr. Trump may fear such honorable men, but we should revere them."
Hassett, McCain's top economic adviser in 2000, was a guest at Saturday's service.

“So while we don’t know who wrote the op-ed, it appears to be backfiring spectacularly on its author(s) amid wild theories and harsh rebuke from all sides of the aisle.
We’re sure Carlos Slim – the largest owner of the New York Times and once the richest man on earth, is having a good laugh at Trump’s expense either way… for now. ”
“Perhaps Trump can push the “fabrication” angle longer than NYT can retain the moral high ground – especially after they hired, then refused to fire, Sarah Jeong – a new addition to the NYT editorial board who was revealed in old tweets to be an openly bigoted, with a particularly deep hatred of “‘old white men.'”
oh man it's kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men
— sarah jeong (@sarahjeong) July 24, 2014
“The New York Times stood by Jeong – claiming she was simply responding to people harassing her for being an Asian lesbian – only to have their absurd theory shredded within hours. Jeong in fact has a multi-year history of unprovoked and random comments expressing hatred towards white men.”
“And now she’s right on the front lines of perhaps the greatest attempt to smear Trump yet. Not exactly a good look for the Times at a time when MSM credibility has already taken a hit. How many broke bread with the Clinton campaign leading up to the 2016 election?”
It puts a whole new spin on that promise President Trump has made to Americans to assist him in passing his America first agenda as he pledges to campaign 6 or even 7 days a week urging his supporters to go to the polls and support Republicans to assist with all hands on deck. Quite a contrast indeed to blame for simply being white and resistance to all things Trump.
Here’s Trump’s interview with Sean Hannity. Skip to the 34 minute mark to hear him.
Details Of The Death Threats Mrs. Kavanaugh Is Getting Will Churn Your Stomach
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh has received a battery of death threats in recent days, after allegations appeared in the press that the judge sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford in 1982.
The vivid missives are just one iteration of the inflamed rhetoric surrounding Kavanaugh’s nomination to the high court, following Ford’s accusations. The Ford family has similarly been threatened.
“May you, your husband and your kids burn in hell,” one message to Mrs. Kavanaugh read.
Another told Mrs. Kavanaugh to put a bullet in her husband’s skull.
The Wall Street Journal obtained the emails on Thursday, which were delivered as federal law enforcement is tracking an uptick in threats against Judge Kavanaugh and his family. The messages were sent to Mrs. Kavanaugh’s work email address. The U.S. Marshals Service is pursuing the matter.
The Kavanaugh family has drawn intense media attention since Ford’s accusations were publicized Sunday in The Washington Post. Mrs. Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes to a gaggle of reporters stationed outside their home on Tuesday.
Per our CBS News cameraman at Kavanaugh's house, his wife handed out cupcakes from Sprinkles to any of the photogs and producers who wanted them.

Mrs. Kavanaugh is no stranger to political conflict. She was an assistant to former President George W. Bush when he was governor of Texas and later served as his personal secretary in the White House. She is currently a town manager in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
Ford herself has also been subject to vile threats. She and her family have been forced from their home in California and remain concerned for their safety, according to her attorneys.
Republicans Quietly Set All-Time Record While Democrats Collapse Overnight
While the American Left is busy trying to pull the rug from under hard-working Americans by pushing an anti-Trump narrative that’s about as believable as the conspiracy that the earth is flat, the GOP was doing a bit of magic of its own.
It’s now being reported that the Republican National Committee has smashed all fundraising records by raising $213 million so far for the fall midterm elections. And what’s even better is the fact the 99% of the money comes from small donations.
Here is more via CNN:
“The Republican National Committee has raised more than $200 million this election cycle, according to an RNC official, the fastest the committee has reached the milestone in a midterm period.
The fundraising achievement, which was expected after the committee came within $900,000 of $200 million last month, is significant for a party that is trying to buck historical norms in 2018. The political party in power traditionally gets rejected at the ballot box two years after they take power, a fact that President Donald Trump has mentioned numerous times in public and private as Republicans prepare for November.
The RNC raised $13.9 million in the month of June — the most it has raised in that month in a non-presidential year — bringing its total fundraising haul to $213 million for the 2017-2018 cycle.
The committee has $50.7 million in the bank and no debt.
The RNC’s numbers will officially be released on Friday when the committee files with the Federal Election Commission.
The RNC haul far eclipses the more than $101 million the Democratic National Committee has raised this cycle, giving the committee upwards of five times the amount of cash-on-hand as the Democrats.
“What I see when I travel the country is that Americans continue to be enthusiastic about President Trump and the Republican agenda,” RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “That enthusiasm has allowed for me to grow our war chest and invest it into what has become the biggest ground game in our Party’s history.”
Despite the excitement McDaniel says she has experienced traveling the country, polling has consistently shown Democrats, motivated by anti-Trump fervor, are more excited to vote in 2018 and see the election as a referendum on the President. That excitement, though, has not turned into a fundraising boon for the DNC.
The DNC raised $67 million in 2017, half of the $132.5 million the RNC raised that year. And, to date, the committee has raised $101 million this cycle, according to a DNC official, a number that pales in comparison to the RNC haul.
The fundraising woes have left the Democrats without much in the bank. According to its last FEC report, the RNC had $47 million in cash on hand, five times as much as the $9 million the Democrats have.
Party Chair Tom Perez, who was tasked with rebuilding a beleaguered DNC after Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016, has tried to focus on fundraising while also investing their smaller war chest in more strategic ways than previous chairs.
“For me, the north star is not can we match them dollar for dollar,” Perez told CNN of the RNC. “It is can we raise the money we need to execute our game plane.”
The DNC under Perez, for example, has spent no money on television ads, something his predecessors did do.
McDaniel, who became RNC chair in December 2016, has led the committee’s effort to raise massive sums during the 2018 midterms.
With an eye on investing $250 million into the party’s midterm efforts, McDaniel has spent a bulk of her time traveling from state-to-state to raise money for the party.”
Western Journalism is reporting that this is, in fact, the fasted the GOP has ever surpassed the $200 million mark during a midterm election year. Which would point to the fact that people are happy with President Donald Trump and his agenda.
Chairwoman of the GOP Ronna McDaniel has said she is traveling the nation and that she sees the fact that people are happy with the Republican agenda wherever she goes. And that’s what is causing this influx of funds at such a high rate of speed. McDaniel has held over 88 fundraisers and is on the phone with donors for six hours a day.
— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) July 17, 2018
Now what’s even better is that according to the fundraiser numbers that will be released today the Republican party broke the record for the most amount of money raised in June during a non-presidential election year: $13.9 million. And what’s perhaps even a better gauge is that the GOP also has $50.7 million in the bank and zero debt. This alone places them well ahead of the Democrat National Committee, which has raised $101 million and has $9 million on hand. That’s 5 times less than the money the RNC has to spend in the upcoming midterms. This is not a new problem for the DNC, in 2017 they were only able to raise $67 million compared to the $132.5 million raised by the RNC. Pretty pathetic if you consider the DNC owns all of Hollywood.
