The Grand Chess Master: Destroying the Deep State
You are watching a game of chess. President Trump and his Administration are 12 moves ahead of the cabal. I will explain, but first lets review some recent DoJ history:
- Jeff Sessions: On November 18, 2016, President Trump nominated Jeff Sessions to become the 84th Attorney General of the United States. Mr. Sessions was confirmed by a very close 52-47 vote on February 8, 2017, and then sworn into office on February 9, 2017. On March 2, 2017, Mr. Sessions recused himself from Russia investigations. This was done by design - but that's another story.
- Rod Rosenstein: On February 1, 2017, President Trump nominated Rod Rosenstein to serve as the Deputy Attorney General. Mr. Rosenstein was confirmed by the Senate on April 25, 2017, in a a very favorable 94-6 vote.
- Noel Francisco: President Trump appointed Noel Francisco to the position of Solicitor General one year ago. Mr. Francisco was confirmed by the Senate in a very close vote (49-47) on September 19, 2017. Mr. Francisco was also sworn into office on September 19, 2017. Remember this date.
Who is Rachel Brand?
Rachel Brand served as Assistant Attorney General from May 22, 2017 to February 20, 2018 - a period of only nine months. The AAG is the third highest position in the DoJ. The MSM reported that Mrs. Brand resigned to accept a position at Walmart. There's more this story, but I'll leave it at this for now.
The 210 Day Clock
Succession within the DoJ is somewhat complicated, but I will break it down for you. Succession is determined by the Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 and DoJ Order 3777-2016 - the latter is a memo titled "Designating Certain Officials to Perform the Functions and Duties of the Attorney General" that was, ironically, penned by Loretta Lynch in 2016.
The Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 references Title 5 of US Code 3345 which says:
(a) If an officer of an Executive agency (including the Executive Office of the President, and other than the Government Accountability Office) whose appointment to office is required to be made by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, dies, resigns, or is otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the office—
(1) the first assistant to the office of such officer shall perform the functions and duties of the office temporarily in an acting capacity subject to the time limitations of section 3346;
Enter Jesse Panuccio
Thus, when Rachel Brand resigned her position as AAG on February 20, 2017, Jesse Panuccio, her deputy, became the temporary AAG. The amount of time that Mr. Panuccio can serve as temporary AAG is defined in section 3346 which states:
(a) Except in the case of a vacancy caused by sickness, the person serving as an acting officer as described under section 3345 may serve in the office—
(1) for no longer than 210 days beginning on the date the vacancy occurs; or
Therefore, Jesse Panuccio can only serve as temporary AAG for 210 days. When does the 210 day clock expire? On September 18, 2018. So unless President Trump appoints someone else to become the next AAG over the next few hours, the DoJ's rules for succession will automatically determine who moves into the number 3 position in the DoJ. Who is this?
I am of the mind that President Trump does not intend to appoint anyone to take Rachel Brand's position. I believe President Trump already made his decision on September 19, 2017. Further, I believe he intends for this person to take over the number 2 position at the DoJ. Before I explain how and why, let's determine who will replace Jesse Pannucio.
The excerpt above is taken from Loretta Lynch's 2016 memo that defines succession within the DoJ - not only for the AG, but also for the DAG and the AAG. We see here that the Solicitor General is the next person in the line for succession. As mentioned previously, the current Solicitor General is Noel Francisco who was appointed by President Trump, confirmed by the Senate and then sworn into office on September 19, 2017.
Did you catch it? This means Mr. Francisco will succeed Jesse Panuccio (temporary AAG) - and it's very likely that he will be sworn into that office on September 19, 2018 exactly one year later - to the day - that he was sworn in as Solicitor General. Further, this succession will happen automatically entirely removing President Trump from the process for the sake of optics. Remember, half of the country doesn't approve of anything President Trump does. Do you see the amazing chess moves taking place here? Do you see the amazing timing? President Trump is 12 months ahead of everyone - to the day.
Further, I submit that these amazing chess moves won't end with Noel Francisco ascending to the #3 position of AAG on September 19. I also believe that Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Mr. Kavanaugh's committe vote will very likely overshadow Mr. Francisco's automatic ascendency to the #3 position of AAG in the media - it seems like this is being intentionally kept quiet. The gloves are about to come off. The President is ready to declassify the FISA warrants. This is putting enormous pressure on Mr. Rosenstein because we now know that his signature is on the fourth warrant. Mr. Rosenstein is being forced to do one of two things - (1) resign or (2) comply with House Republicans and declassify the redacted portions of the FISA documents being requested. Once this happens, and it will, Mr. Rosenstein is done - and I believe he will ultimately resign.
If Rod Rosenstein resigns, Noel Francisco will become the next Deputy Attorney General - and I believe this is precisely what President Trump has had planned since nominating Mr. Francisco one year ago. Robert Mueller's new boss will be Noel Francisco. The deep state is about to be dealt a series of massive blows that will "bring down the house". This is the amazing game of chess being played by President Trump and those Patriots who surround him.
Don't forget, the new EAS will be tested on September 20 (9/17 edit: backed off until October 4). You will receive a personal message over your mobile device from the President of the United States - a direct communication from POTUS to you. If you think the timing of this direct communication is coincidental, think again. Conservative free speech is under attack on all major social media platforms. Last week, several subreddit groups including one called "r/thegreatawakening" was banned from Reddit. This one subreddit had 279,000 conservative members. Gab has already been banned by Google searches because of hate speech (Gab is an alternative free speech platform to Twitter). Facebook and Twitter are already banning conservatives, and they have announced that they will be immediately ratcheting up the control of hate speech on their platforms - meaning they intend to further suppress conservative free speech going into the midterms. POTUS uses Twitter to communicate with WE THE PEOPLE directly because he can't trust the MSM to share the positive things his Administration is doing. What happens if Twitter bans President Trump? This is a very serious time folks. We cannot rely upon the major socials going into the midterms. POTUS knows this, and that's why he has readied the new EAS. Make no mistake, when the FISA documents are declassified, the crazies in the deep state will panic. They will fight back. Be prepared - and please vote!
Please pray for POTUS, his family, and all of the brave Patriots fighting for our freedom.
