The shocker continues to fly. What does it say when the architect of your win believes you only stand a 30% chance of fulfilling your first term as President? Here is why I think that barring a sudden change, the countdown to an overthrow, a post-Trump, is on.

Donald Trump is in over his head. He along with his Trumpian posse are the only ones that are oblivious to the reasserting of the Establishment as they build an overthrow. In a riveting article by Gabriel Sherman in Vanity Fair, it is clear that all of the grown-ups surrounding Trump know he is unstable.

West Wing aides have also worried about Trump's public appearances, one Trump adviser told me. The adviser said aides were relieved when Trump declined to agree to appear on the season premiere of 60 Minutes last month. "He's lost a step. They don't want him doing adversarial TV interviews," the adviser explained. Instead, Trump has sat down for friendly conversations with Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee, whose daughter is Trump's press secretary. (The White House official says the 60 Minutes interview is being rescheduled.)

Are these signs of the overthrow?

Ironically Steve Bannon may be accelerating his ex-boss' demise.

Even before Corker's remarks, some West Wing advisers were worried that Trump's behavior could cause the Cabinet to take extraordinary Constitutional measures to remove him from office. Several months ago, according to two sources with knowledge of the conversation, former chief strategist Steve Bannon told Trump that the risk to his presidency wasn't impeachment, but the 25th Amendment--the provision by which a majority of the Cabinet can vote to remove the president. When Bannon mentioned the 25th Amendment, Trump said, "What's that?" According to a source, Bannon has told people he thinks Trump has only a 30 percent chance of making it the full term.

Everyone knows Trump is a paranoid thin-skinned person. Why then would Bannon talk to Trump about the 25th Amendment which in effect tells the president that he must always be looking over his shoulders with a cabinet that may be ready to overthrow him? He wants the overthrow with the expectation of destabilizing the country to fulfill his "deconstruction of the administrative state."

The media is now in concert with a narrative of an unhinged president that cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes. A few respected Republicans like David Frum and Bob Corker are building the 25 Amendment case. Others are making the case for impeachment. Folks, the soft overthrow is in process.

The problem with an overthrow is that "they" (oligarch 1%) are back to their "old" tricks and everything is fine since we don't have Trump anymore. Reminds me of when the Berlin Wall came down and Americans were celebrating their "victory" in the Cold War. While Russia "lost" she was able to rebuild herself and emerge stronger while the American "winners" continued on their "murdering destructive" ways and here we are ready to go after the Russians again and anyone else in the way of the Good Old Boy WHITE United States of America. If we think we have solved the "problem" by getting rid of Trump we will continue on the path to oblivion. Our country will have to experience a significant loss (like Russia in the Cold War), or train wreck for Americans to be able to change for the better. There is too much momentum for anything but drastic change to be successful. Trump=symptom, War Monger Culture=Disease.

Along the same line of thought (reality) Rick, another article which is in the same vein goes into more detail of your correct statement.

The deep divisions in American ruling circles that are fueling speculation about Trump's impeachment were summed up in a WaPo editorial on Tuesday entitled "What to do with an unfit president."

Far from halting the drive to war, the political crisis only adds to the danger. Beset with conflict at home, Trump is being propelled to extricate himself by seeking to project political and social tensions outwards against a foreign foe. His critics and opponents are not opposed to war.

Many are criminally culpable for acts of aggression over the past 25 years. The differences are purely tactical, over how to attack and who to attack first. Without the development of a mass anti-war movement of the working class in America and internationally, war is not only possible but inevitable.

Since he started running, pretty much every major prediction about Trump has been wildly inaccurate. I concur with BFalcon. It ain't over til it's over.

The establishment started their overthrow of Trump the day after they lost the election.

That said, why would one celebrate that looking at how they have destroyed our nation, decimating our Constitution, allowing our infrastructure to decay to third world conditions, widened the differences between the haves and have-nots, dismantled the three branches of government to where none have any responsibility, made our judicial system one where the amount of money one has determines whether a "law" has been broken, has a disinformation communication system whereby the masses know only what the establishment wants them to know and that is more often than not a lie.

No, to celebrate the establishment's overthrowing Trump is ignorant, at best.

Maybe that's why they allowed Trump to win the election. So they could propagandize how great things were and how bad one who isn't under their control is messing things up. Their Corporate Media Propagandists (CMP) have gone overboard with the negativism every time he does something, anything. Then one wonders why polls show a negative attitude toward him. Another negative is he has been in office 9 months now and still hasn't illegally invaded another country even though they are playing it up how he is leading us to destruction. Now in his latest move against Obamacare they highlight how he is taking away healthcare from millions of people. In reality it is taking away $Billions from the insurance companies who will lose the premiums. If the CMP really cared about the people they would be bombarding the airwaves on the advantages of Medicare for all!

One thing Trump is doing is exposing the propaganda the people have been fed for the past half century and the establishment is actually in panic mode, not Trump.

It's like Operation Mockingbird never ended.

I saw a lot of wailing when Trump threatened NBC's broadcasting license but I recall back when the left wanted these propaganda machines reigned in during the Bush regime and were also calling for the revocation of licenses.

Then again, the left used to be antiwar and pro-civil liberties back then as well.

What the hell happened?

The First Amendment doesn't apply to propaganda.

I just can't get past the idea that Trump is the front man for one Deep State faction that is engaged in total warfare with another faction.

Unfortunately, too many on the left have drank the identity politics Kool-Aid and are unable to recall their prior stance from the reign of the Bushreich.

Hell, I even see so-called liberals making excuses for Bush. WTF?

Isn't comforting to know that Mad Dog Mattis will be calling the shots,literally speaking. If Trump is gone, the Neocons and their Democratic Party cronies will give up their Project for a New American Century, which was not abandoned at all? Or to paraphrase Reagan, The Swampdellers will always be with us.

Trump's administration is a joke. However he has saved us from a calamitous HILLARY CLINTON'S government which was headed to be a thoroughly banker's CABAL controlled administration.
WHATEVER HILLARY HAS TOUCHED TURNED INTO sh*t.
Libya today is a complete disaster since she managed to assassinate Gaddafy who had been cooperating with the West for many years, and she used Libya's weapons to arm the invaders in Syria to attack the LEGITIMATE government of that country. As much as Trump is a clown, HE'S WAY BETTER THAN WHATEVER THE "ESTABLISHMENT" HAD PLANNED TO DO WITH HILLARY b*tch CLINTON.

Gorbachev has written a letter to Trump and Putin that was published in the Wash. Post but you can't read it unless you are a paid subscriber. It seems they don't want it to get much attention. Fortunately it's available elsewhere, and I submitted it here this morning.

I also submitted a link here to a Guardian article about Jimmy Carter having volunteered to go on a peace mission to N. Korea, but it did not appear here. Why, I wonder?

Which is more important: avoiding war with N. Korea and/or Russia, or prattling about impeachment or the 25th amendment? And now we have to read on OEN that "world leaders" are confident that "the U.S. Intelligence Community has their backs and will prevent him [Trump] from following through on any potentially detrimental threat."

This is the voice of the "left"? Of "progressives"?
