Anonymous White House Mole: “I Am Part Of The Resistance Inside The Trump Administration”
Late Wednesday afternoon we witnessed the culmination of what can best be described as “Yellow Journalism” at its worst when the failing New York Times ran an op-ed hit piece by someone claiming to be a senior staffer inside the White House.
For those not familiar with the term “yellow journalism” it’s a term associated with newspapers presenting little or no legitimate or well-researched news while instead using eye-catching headlines for increased sales, or to promote an agenda.
It’s a pejorative term highlighting media organizations that treat the gathering of news sources in an unprofessional or unethical fashion — which is now the actual news.
The Times along with the other “fake news” outlets have been running “off-the-record” articles and quoting “anonymous sources” since Trump became president.
Moreover, just recently the Boston Globe led the charge calling on some 300 news organizations all across the country to push back against the president. Perhaps this is exactly what they are doing by fabricating an anonymous source and thus creating discourse and distrust within a White House already besieged by a disgruntled and hostile press.
Therefore the possibility that a New York Times employee actually penned the article cannot be ruled out.
The op-ed article also “coincidently” follows and supports another disgruntled journalist, Bob Woodward’s new book titled “Fear: Trump in the White House.” Which also oddly enough cites sources within his book, who refute his assertions, claiming he fabricated their comments and which mirrors to some extent the headline within the New York Times article attributed to “anonymous” that reads “I Am Part of the Resistance inside the Trump Administration.”
Obviously, this is all speculation. However, if true the article should alarm us all in that the “deep state” is now lurking within the walls of the White House and is dangerously close to our Commander-in-Chief.
The president, of course, weighed in on the obvious breach of trust tweeting out:
Isn’t it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally makeup stories and form a picture of a person that is the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost. Don’t know why Washington politicians don’t change libel laws?

The unnamed author referenced as a “senior” Trump official paints a scary picture of himself, as a self-aggrandized conspiracist leading a “quiet resistance” against the president from inside the White House.
“It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room,” the author wrote.
“We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t.”
The writer goes on to suggest perhaps a soft coup might be the answer stating “Trump’s “instability” led to “early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president.”
Adding, “But no one wanted to precipitate in a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until, one way or another, it’s over.”
That ominous last line by someone lurking in the White House, cowardly writing hit pieces in secret, perhaps only a few feet away from the president, should immediately concern the Secret Service.
How far does one go from anonymously writing an op-ed in the New York Times, claiming to be “part of the resistance” to perhaps taking that unimaginable next step into history?
That’s a question no one can answer. Yet I must point out that we’ve seen, over the course of just two years since Donald Trump became president, the slow and continued escalation of hate aimed at this man and his family. And with each additional step, we’ve witnessed the Left become more shrill, more unhinged, and more dangerous.
Celebrities no longer insult the president, they now overtly threaten him; like drug-addled Johnny Depp casually talking about assassination as a viable alternative.
