Truth or Fantasy? Trump has already won; Trump is winning; Trump is losing; Trump has already lost;
I'm with Kev's "approach to shit I cannot influence" As in we here are not on a schedule or timeline to save or defeat Trump and don't have to worry about slacking off the job because some bits of good news or evidence of success have come to light. I am grateful for Miss Marple's news, updates, and what the laser focus pundits are writing about. Also respect logic, reason and concerns from others. Some of the back and forth speculation seems interesting. Some of the anti-speculation not so much.
For Gus, Rush just compared how the MFM sees Trump to Rodney Dangerfield in Caddy Shack.
"until someone on the inside sings a la John Dean" Used to listen to G Gordon Liddy on talk radio. After the recent deep state unmasking a la Trump my opinion of Liddy's claims have gone up and Dean's credibility has gone down. Liddy claimed Dean was singing more misdirection than fact.
"Does Trump control the Executive Branch or not?" There could be a good reason Trump is holding full declassification as a last resort. When the Ace of Trump is in the dummy for all to see it might be used to neutralize the Jack.

"the template I am talking about is being used in all schools--not just public ones" Like anything else with the march through institutions the government is the main tool used by the left to transform education.
RSE: "said for years this will increase as the use of these techniques is nationalized into communities that had previously made academic content the focus instead of targeting how the students perceives the world and how they interpret daily experiences" Seems like government education is turning some kids into protomolecule hybrids.
Italiacto!
"...I am NOT a big twit" Sue once accused me of using misleading quotes. I almost never do that!

"convinces more and more people that the press is evil" Those who Trump would destroy he first drives mad.

Moderate and swing voters are feelers. Usually big backers of "The Victim". Sure "Us Thinkers" find it all just frustrating but Trump already has all the thinkers he can get. Nothing is going to flip the anti-Trump think crowd.

Daddy on Rush: Trump's Legal Advisors, worried that if Trump does order the release of all the redacted stuff it'll make problems for them, and the Media and the Dem's will spin Trumps declassifying all this stuff as Trump being reckless in regards to National Security, and also Trump engaging in Obstruction of Justice ... Trump currently revels in and is empowered in playing that he is the victim. He can tweet away to his hearts content about the Witchhunt and the skulduggery ...Pretty much what I speculate. Trump's advantage is doing the bully in the china shop but looking like the victim.

That's why I have been using "Binary" ... I might be getting it wrong but seems like you favor "Whack a Mole" starting day one or earlier. Take skulls, scalps and prisoners as fast as they appear. Wouldn't that require the 4D FoolProof MasterPlan that you mock?

"he needs lawyers who have not bought into the Independent DoJ Scam" Depends if the risk is legal or political. The Boris Hypothesis: Mueller has dirt but not enough to take Trump out directly. Thus, inject it into the mid-terms successfully to flip the House and/or Senate ... Impeachment! Trump has enough to shut down Mueller but MFM screams Nixonian Saturday Night Massacre. Costing loos of the the House and/or Senate ... Impeachment! If both sides perceive success as political rather than legal there is no benefit invoking legal technicalities. Mueller's dirt is actually stronger if he is shut down and shutting him down won't stop any of the dirt he already has. Trump's best strategery may be to thwart Mueller dirt with anti-dirt and build public support with policies and playing more victim than bully. Anti-dirt only works against dirt. Not much good until there is dirt to use it against.

While not a Grand Unified Theory, I do have a possible explanation for what seems to be commonly known. Trump and Mueller already have enough on each other to do serious damage. Mueller does not believe what he currently has is enough to take Trump out directly, but if he injects it into the mid-terms successfully it might flip the House and/or Senate ... Impeachment! Trump might have enough to discredit and legally shut down Mueller but there is the chance the MFM could portray that as a Nixonian Saturday Night Massacre. Again losing the House and/or Senate ... Impeachment! So instead Trump believes his best play is maintain public approval and counter Mueller's election influence dirt with public discredit rather than legal discredit (or both). So the Ledge dwellers are not going to get the satisfaction they demand anytime soon and the rest of us are stuck waiting for the shitstorm to begin closer to the election.
"anyone who dismisses other folks' arguments as knee-jerk Rosenstein-hate mongering is begging for combat" Seems like an exaggeration and the "dismisses other folks' arguments" has been going on here far longer than this thread. But again, how is what Tom does relevant to If you think the game is over at half time with the score tied ... then just what is the point in berating fans who just want to finish watching the game?Unless you also believe I believe the only fan berated is Tom?

For the record, nothing wrong with the doom analysis of prospects. And my eyes see way more black hats in the bleachers and the field. But our team is not the home team and we go into the game hoping for an upset.

Well there is "refuse to admit" on both sides and that one comes pretty late in the debate. I don't need to defend Tom to observe low tolerance for fans who claim it aint over yet.

"being unwilling to put a rosy interpretation on everything that happens" More like "unwilling to tolerate others putting a rosy interpretation on everything that happens".

"like watching the other team get touchdown after touchdown" Not to me. More like the other team gets away with some blatant illegal hits. We are not the home team here. The crowd and officials favor the home team but Trump is the one scoring touchdowns. Makes it harder but don't see how spreading "Doom and Gloom" is an improvement. YMMV

"we have seen this playbook many times,and with the same players. And you want to tell,this time it's different" If you think the game is over at half time with the score tied ... then just what is the point in berating fans who just want to finish watching the game? "Oh yeah I hope our team wins and I will be happy if they do but I know better and I'm sick and tired of hearing how we're going to get lucky after halftime."

"Does the President know how to leverage opportunities as they present themselves, and position himself to do so? You bet. Does that mean he staged the whole circus? No" Precisely the difference between Pinball Wizard and Kwisatz Haderach.
Toggle Commented May 5, 2018 on Like They Can Help Themselves at JustOneMinute
On the 4D topic my take is more Pinball Wizard than Kwisatz Haderach. Also Rosenstein acting in his own best interest could be part of either strategery.
