My theory on the firings at DHS


The real objective is to fire the career prosecutors at SDNY and Washington and others who are carrying on leads developed by the Muller investigation.

Obviously he can't go after them directly so he is starting a series of "mini purges" to create a general acceptance on the President's ability to fire people in the executive branch.

He will continue to create chaos and much "tsk tsk tsking" from Grassley and other Senate Republicans. Romney and others will say it is disconcerting but within the President's prerogative.

And after he has started disarming large sections of the federal government and getting Nero like confirmations from crowds who hate the government in part because of the ankle bracelets they wear for DUI and wife beating he will "uncover" a network of prosecutors who are trying to "do an end run around the elections" and take him out with a coup and put Hillary in.

People will be numb to it. The Republican senators have long lost the courage to stand up for the constitution or the country.

And the final move will be wide spread pardons. He will pardon everyone he can so that he and his children will be lost in the crowd.

1. I agree that it's very plausible - He can get away with it if he does it.

2. He's in an animal state of survival mode right now.

He knows whatís coming and he believes that by going crazy and firing everybody in an explosive and shocking way heíll strike fear in the heart of his enemies. Heís testing the border patrol to break the law for him so he can measure his power. He is preparing for a real battle to keep from ever being accountable for his crimes.

He would probably just flip us the bird and leave if he could get away with his crimes. The problem is that right now he can fight by using executive privilege but heís probably acutely aware of the short time he has left in office before he becomes a civilian again. If the next President is a Democrat, which is very likely Trump knows he can expect no pardon.

Like any cornered rat he is forced to fight right now. But he also has to look confident and powerful to his base, because he will try to use them to protect him if he has to.

His base love him but I donít think he can get them to rise up en masse. All heíll get are a few lone crazies to do individual violence, just as has happened up to now.

I hope the FBI are keeping track of these people at his rallies. Iím sure his more ardent followers, the crazy ones, go to all his rallies.
