In the world of gambling, there are many truths to any game. One of the most compelling and stable truths is that there really is no such thing as a “sure thing.” Yeah, you can have the odds so ridiculously stacked against one side or another, and that makes the choice much easier.
When Hillary Clinton was given the green light to ascend the throne for her coronation by the DNC, the Fake News Media, the Hollywood arrogant, the Deep State, and the Globalist Cabal in 2016, the Democrat voter was being set up for a downright cruel trick. As such, the flood of good news for the Crooked One, with some proclaiming that her victory was 98% assured, forced a rush to the polls by the Republican voter who was terrified of what an Obama third term would look like under Clinton.
Like the Okefenokee, there are always more choking marshlands to navigate in the DC bog.
Sure things are elusive, as well they should be. No one should ever be assured if there is not a 100% guarantee hammered into iron.
Another truth about gambling, particularly in one-on-one games of skill, is the “tell.” For most who are familiar with the game of poker, the tell is one of the seasoned player’s most crucial tools in the winner’s satchel. If a player can use his knowledge of a tell effectively, there is a marked increase in his chances of success. The odds, as the saying goes, are in his favor.
President Donald Trump is not only a fearless businessman for more decades than many of his potential 2020 opponents on the Democrat side have even been alive, but he is a bold and indefatigable opponent in the political ring. The president waded into the Swamp without a moment’s hesitation, wrestled the alligators, defanged the water moccasins, shelled the snapping turtles and cut off the blood supply to the leeches…and emerged on the opposite side, bruised and battered, but victorious.
Of course, that was only the first of his monumental skirmishes to come. Like the Okefenokee, there are always more choking marshlands to navigate in the DC bog.
The reasons for the president going from rock star in the television and print Paparazzi world to arguably the most reviled figure in the political realm in the last century are really all about how social media and the internet have in effect been coopted by enterprising consultants and their billionaire enablers to enrage the public through clever string-pulling and button-pushing. These secretive, shadowy groups have been wildly successful in making a handful of the outraged to appear as throngs of Vikings waiting at the gates in siege formation. They have enabled the Fake News Media to use a formulaic method of yellow journalism from the turn of the 19th Century to rally Progressive death squads from every hidey hole on the planet to the cause of The Resistance in direct opposition to Trump and his supporters.
It’s obvious that poker is NOT the Crooked One’s game and, if the president continues to pull in those amazing numbers at his rallies all the way to November 2020, the Democrat Party will be in such utter disarray that they may have no choice but to beg Hillary to enter the race.
Trump has often referred to the Fake News industrial complex as the “enemy of the people” and has been denounced for it, the speechless anchors fanning themselves with their news copy and proclaiming Trump to be inciting White supremacists (i.e., Trump supporters, no matter the color of their skin) to violence against reporters.
The president, however, is a gambler. He has owned casinos and has taken more risks in any given business enterprise than Doyle Brunson and Vanessa Rousso combined. To be sure, Donald John Trump knows a tell when he sees it.
The Democrat Party, the Fake News media and anyone else even vaguely associated within Leftist circles have been pressing their assumed advantage in this impeachment fiasco and honestly believe that they can eke out a small victory. They seriously suspect that, even if they cannot remove him from office, they can at least damage him with a self-inflicted scorched earth policy so catastrophic to the Democrats that, should they finally decide on a 2020 candidate with even half the political instincts of the Donald, they will lose in a near landslide. It is nothing more than a dangerous game of Fifty-Two Pick-Up; one that many in the consultancy class can sense deep down in their bones will certainly lead to a temporary near-extinction of Democrat messaging and ground game.
The tells of the political game are many and, in today’s headlines, even Hillary Clinton is tipping her hand in a most amateurish way. It’s obvious that poker is NOT the Crooked One’s game and, if the president continues to pull in those amazing numbers at his rallies all the way to November 2020, the Democrat Party will be in such utter disarray that they may have no choice but to beg Hillary to enter the race. Clearly, though, Hillary is not playing with a full deck. If they’re smart, they will ensure that it is late enough that she avoids all her mishaps from 2016, like the debate stage, personal appearances, rallies, pressing the flesh with millionaire celebrities, secret meetings with Wall Street billionaires, warning off Ronan Farrow from pursuing stories about her friends, not campaigning in the Blue Firewall states and allowing her unfiltered interviews.
That last one is really her Achilles Heel because this is the very one that allows Donald Trump to spot her tells in the game. Her hand is strong, make no mistake, but it’s the tells that continually appear to trip her up in this game of cat and mouse. And Trump is a lion who has perfected the art of “going in for the kill.”
Now, Clinton is assuring anyone desperate enough to listen that Jill Stein is a Russian agent, while Tulsi Gabbard is a terror cell member, waiting to be activated.
Just today, the Crooked One intimated that, of all people, Tulsi Gabbard (the Hawaii Democrat running for the 2020 nomination) is a – wait for it – Russian asset. Clinton was a guest on Campaign HQ podcast, hosted by long-time Obama loyalist and aide David Plouffe, and dropped this bombshell in order to keep the ball rolling on the debunked and now-nearly laughable Russia collusion hoax. In addition to this hilarity, she doubled down on her bluff by also naming Jill Stein as a Communist stooge. The same Jill Stein who attempted to assist Clinton in stealing an election by bribing (and some would go so far as to say, bullying) electors into changing their votes to favor the former Madam Secretary. Stein was integral in Clinton’s crazy scheme to alter the outcome of the 2016 election and even welcomed the enlistment of a whole bevy of the Hollywood arrogant who literally filmed a Public Service Announcement video and released it to beg the electors to shatter the US Constitution and place a very corrupt individual into the Oval Office.
Not surprisingly after all was said and done, Hillary ended up losing a few more votes in the final tally. Now, Clinton is assuring anyone desperate enough to listen that Jill Stein is a Russian agent, while Tulsi Gabbard is a terror cell member, waiting to be activated. What will she do then? Gabbard will determine to run as a third-party candidate which will, in the end, only assist Donald Trump in winning his reelection bid.
This is Hillary’s tell.
The fact that something as outlandish and maniacal in nature is being bandied on Progressive networks is a tell nearly as blatant as Elizabeth Warren fanning smoke signals with a horse blanket to the mainstream media that they are not to ask questions about how she’ll pay for Medicare For All.
In the end, Donald Trump can see right through these tells. The impeachment secrecy panel set up by Adam “Shifty” Schiff, the huffy walkout of the Syria discussion by “Nervous” Nancy Pelosi, the multiple leaks regarding the president’s phone calls to foreign leaders by the Deep State, the expletive-ridden rants by Robert “I’ll Murderlize Ya” DeNiro, the breathless headlines about the “abandonment of the Kurds” by the Fake News Media and the neo-Conservatives, and the condemnation of Viktor Orban, Matteo Renzi, Volodymyr Zelensky and Boris Johnson (among others) are all the many tells in the game of international politics where Trump holds all the cards.
The president has the Heart to pull back from war, the Club to strike down the rise of Socialism in America, the Spade to dig the grave for Fascism and the squelching of our freedoms, and the Diamonds in the rough lying just beneath the surface to pay back the working people of this country who have striven so patriotically for equality and justice.
Trump is the poker player’s player and he’s beaten the Establishmentariat at its own game.
