Trump administration is "shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down." This is a fight to the finish, they won't quit until Trump is impeached or resigns-Pat Buchanan...(Comment: Ivanka, why isn't your father's survival job #1 for you? By now you could've weeded out his insider enemies. Perhaps your heart is really with your Soros crowd pals in the EU)

"What he and his White House need to understand is that this is not going to end, that this is a fight to the finish, that his enemies will not relent until they see him impeached or resigning in disgrace."

June 12, 2017, "Are We Nearing Civil War?" Pat Buchanan

"President Trump may be chief of state, head of government and commander in chief, but his administration is shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down.

We are approaching something of a civil war where the capital city seeks the overthrow of the sovereign and its own restoration.

Thus far, it is a nonviolent struggle, though street clashes between pro- and anti-Trump forces are increasingly marked by fistfights and brawls. Police are having difficulty keeping people apart. A few have been arrested carrying concealed weapons.

That the objective of this city is to bring Trump down via a deep state-media coup is no secret. Few deny it.

Last week, fired Director of the FBI James Comey, a successor to J. Edgar Hoover, admitted under oath that he used a cutout to leak to The New York Times an Oval Office conversation with the president.

Goal: have the Times story trigger the appointment of a special prosecutor to bring down the president.

Comey wanted a special prosecutor to target Trump, despite his knowledge, from his own FBI investigation, that Trump was innocent of the pervasive charge that he colluded with the Kremlin in the hacking of the DNC.

Comey’s deceit was designed to enlist the police powers of the state to bring down his president. And it worked. For the special counsel named, with broad powers to pursue Trump, is Comey’s friend and predecessor at the FBI, Robert Mueller....

Another example. According to Daily Kos, Trump planned a swift lifting of sanctions on Russia after inauguration and a summit meeting with Vladimir Putin to prevent a second Cold War. 

The State Department was tasked with working out the details. Instead, says Daniel Fried, the coordinator for sanctions policy, he received “panicky” calls of “Please, my God, can you stop this?”

Operatives at State, disloyal to the president and hostile to the Russia policy on which he had been elected, collaborated with elements in Congress to sabotage any detente. They succeeded. 

“It would have been a win-win for Moscow,” said Tom Malinowski of State, who boasted last week of his role in blocking a rapprochement with Russia. State employees sabotaged one of the principal policies for which Americans had voted, and they substituted their own.

Not in memory have there been so many leaks to injure a president from within his own government, and not just political leaks, but leaks of confidential, classified and secret documents. The leaks are coming out of the supposedly secure investigative and intelligence agencies of the U.S. government.

The media, the beneficiaries of these leaks, are giving cover to those breaking the law. The real criminal “collusion” in Washington is between Big Media and the deep state, colluding to destroy a president they detest and to sink the policies they oppose....

Trump has had many accomplishments since his election. Yet his enemies in the media and their deep state allies have often made a purgatory of his presidency.

What he and his White House need to understand is that this is not going to end, that this is a fight to the finish, that his enemies will not relent until they see him impeached or resigning in disgrace.

To prevail, Trump will have to campaign across this country and wage guerrilla war in this capital, using the legal and political weapons at his disposal to ferret out the enemies within his own government.

Not only is this battle essential, if Trump hopes to realize his agenda, it is winnable. For the people sense that the Beltway elites are cynically engaged in preserving their own privileges, positions and power.

If the president cannot rewrite Obamacare or achieve tax reform, he should not go around the country in 2018 wailing about Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer. They are not the real adversaries. They are but interchangeable parts.

He should campaign against the real enemies of America First by promising to purge the deep state and flog its media collaborators.

Time to burn down the Bastille."

Comment: President Trump has a strong impulse for self sabotage which apparently is not new. If Ivanka wants her father to serve his full term, she must break him of this compulsion. Here's a suggestion that won't take much time. Roll play with him, sit in chairs across from each other. Feed him lines then get his response. Eventually he'll undercut or sabotage himself. Let him hear what he's doing. (For example, saying, "I didn't do anything wrong," isn't a helpful response when someone says the Russians stole the election. Needless to say, don't record these sessions). Those of us who support Pres. Trump are happy to defend him but we have nothing to defend when he massively surrenders/sabotages himself.  

For example, at his 1/11/17 press conference, the first since his winning the presidency in Nov. 2016, with the world glued to his every word, he announces--without a shred of independently verified evidence--that Russia hacked the election and Putin 'Shouldn't Have Done It'. At that moment, Pres. Trump nullified his entire election, proved he was easily intimidated and could be maneuvered into resigning.

Doubling down on self sabotage, Pres. Trump chose Adm. Michael S. Rogers for director of the National Security Agency who's also a serious promoter of the Russia hacked the election hypothesis. Why would you hire someone who to this day thinks your election was a fraud? There shouldn’t be any doubt in anybody’s mind,” Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency and commander of United States Cyber Command, said at a postelection conference. 

“This was not something that was done casually, this was not something that was done by chance, this was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily,” he said. This was a conscious effort by a nation-state to attempt to achieve a specific effect.”"...

Jan. 11, 2017-Trump says "Putin shouldn't have done it":

Jan. 11, 2017, "Trump Concedes Russia Was Behind Hacking, Says Putin 'Shouldn't Have Done It'," ABC News, Morgan Winsor 

"President-elect Donald Trump said today he accepts the intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia was behind the massive alleged hacking of political organizations and individuals during the U.S. presidential race--the first time he has conceded that Russia was behind the cyberattacks.

"As far as hacking, I think it was Russia," Trump told reporters during his first press conference since winning the Nov. 8 election. "But I also think we've been hacked by other countries, other people." 

Trump added that Russian President Vladimir Putin "shouldn't have done it" and he doesn't believe Putin will "be doing it more now" after he's inaugurated on Jan. 20.

 Last week Trump and President Barack Obama were separately briefed on a classified intelligence report on Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election. A declassified version was released afterward that said Putin ordered a campaign to influence the contest between Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

"We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election. Russia's goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton and harm her electability and potential presidency," the report reads, citing the Russian government's "long-standing desire to undermine the U.S.-led liberal democratic order."

"We further assess Putin and the Russian government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump," the report continues, saying Putin nursed a "grudge" against Clinton "for comments he almost certainly saw as disparaging." 

After being briefed on the report, Trump took to Twitter to blame the Democratic National Committee's "gross negligence" in the cyberattacks.

At the press conference Trump said it would be "very important" to develop a "hacking defense" because "the United States is hacked by everybody."

 When asked by ABC News' Jonathan Karl whether he accepted that the Russian president ordered the influence campaign in favor of a Trump victory, Trump continued to assert that the United States will benefit from a stronger relationship with Moscow.

"We have a horrible relationship with Russia," he responded. "If Putin likes Donald Trump — guess what, folks — that’s called an asset, not a liability."

Trump said the Russian government will have "far greater respect" for the United States with him at the helm, adding that he will be "tougher" on Putin than Clinton would have been.

 "Now, I don't know that I'm going to get along with Vladimir Putin. I hope I do. But there's a good chance I won't," he said. "And if I don't, do you honestly believe that Hillary would be tougher on Putin than me? Does anyone in this room really believe that? Give me a break.""

Added: Trump's chosen NSA chief Michael Rogers says that Putin hacked the DNC to tip the election to Trump: 

4/5/17, "EXCLUSIVE: Cybersecurity experts who were first to conclude that Putin hacked presidential election ABANDON some of their claims against Russia - and refuse to co-operate with Congress," Daily Mail, Alana Goodman

"HOW RUSSIAN HACK CLAIMS UNFOLDED" 

"January 6 (2017): The intelligence services - including the FBI, CIA, NSA and 14 others - present a 'unanimous' report to president-elect Trump. It concluded that Putin ordered a hacking campaign to tip the election in Trump's favor. No new evidence of how the hacking was carried out is presented in the public version of the report.

March 20 (2017): FBI Director James Comey and NSA head Michael Rogers testify to the House Intelligence Committee that their conclusions remain the same."

Added: Trump selects a man for a top position who thinks Trump was likely elected by Russian fraud: NSA chief Michael Rogers says, There shouldn’t be any doubt in anybody’s mind" Putin hacked the election to tip it to Trump:

Dec. 13, 2016, "The Perfect Weapon: How Russian Cyberpower Invaded the U.S.," NY Times, Eric Lipton, David E. Sanger, Scott Shane 

"While there's no way to be certain of the ultimate impact of the hack, this much is clear: A low-cost, high-impact weapon that Russia had test-fired in elections from Ukraine to Europe was trained on the United States with devastating effectiveness."...

[Ed. note: If "there's no way to be certain" of the ultimate impact," it can't possibly have had "devastating effectiveness."]
  
(continuing): "For Russia, with an enfeebled economy and a nuclear arsenal it cannot use short of all-out war, cyberpower proved the perfect weapon: cheap, hard to see coming, hard to trace.

There shouldn’t be any doubt in anybody’s mind,” Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency and commander of United States Cyber Command, said at a postelection conference.

“This was not something that was done casually, this was not something that was done by chance, this was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily,” he said. This was a conscious effort by a nation-state to attempt to achieve a specific effect.”"...

Comment: Trump hired Mike Rogers who thinks Trump's election was obtained by fraud. That's serious self sabotage.
