Oh it hasn’t happened yet, but as I’ve been predicting for a long time now, the knives have been officially unsheathed in the direction of “Slo’ Joe” Biden’s candidacy for the Democratic nomination. I’ve been waiting to see how this whole thing would ultimately unfold, so as soon as I heard that the story of the so-called “whistle-blower” involved President Trump’s phone conversation with the president of Ukraine, boy, did my ears perk up. Oh sure, the angle that you’re getting from the usual suspects – CNN, MSNBC, NPR, etc. etc. – all focus on the President and his supposed recklessness, corruption, and/or incompetence, but the story is already starting to evolve into Joe Biden’s shakedown of Ukrainian officials on behalf of his son, Hunter.

What the media won’t tell you are the facts as laid out by Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse:

The government of Ukraine under both Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, and now President Volodymyr Zelensky, had been trying to deliver information about Obama officials and Democrat party officials (DNC on behalf of Hillary Clinton) requesting the government of Ukraine to interfere in the 2016 election.

Both Poroshenko and Zelensky administrations had tried, unsuccessfully, to get information to current U.S. officials. U.S. State Department officials in Ukraine were refusing to give visa’s to Ukrainian emissaries because they did not want the damaging information sent to the President Trump administration.

Failing to get help from the U.S. State Department, the Ukranians tried a workaround, and hired a respected U.S. lawyer to hand deliver the documentary evidence directly to the U.S. Department of Justice. The contracted American lawyer hand-delivered the information to the U.S. Department of Justice in New York.

However, after delivering the information and not hearing back from the U.S. government, the Ukrainian government, now led by President Zelensky, interpreted the silence as the Trump administration and U.S. government (writ large) being upset about the Ukraine involvement overall. Out of concern for a serious diplomatic breakdown, the Zelensky administration made a personal request to the U.S. State Department for assistance.

The U.S. State Department then reached out to Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani; and asked him if he would meet with Zelensky’s top lawyer, Andrei Yermak.

Rudy Giuliani agreed to act as a diplomatic intermediary and met with Yermak in Spain. After the meeting, Mr. Giuliani then contacted the State Department Officials in charge of Ukraine and Europe and debriefed them on the totality of the subject matter as relayed by Andrei Yermak.

All of this activity preceded the phone call between U.S. President Donald Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

President Trump and President Zelensky discussed the issues, and this phone call is the one now referenced by the concerned “whistleblower”. The “whistleblower” obviously had no knowledge of the background and why the subject matter discussed in the phone call was framed as it was.

Apparently in the phone call, President Zelensky was explaining what action the Ukranian government had already taken to try and get the information about corrupt U.S. officials, including former VP Joe Biden, to the U.S. government.

It was from this clarification of information that President Trump is reported to have told Zelensky it was OK to proceed with any internal investigation of corruption in Ukraine that might also encompass former U.S. officials. Yes, that would include Joe Biden.

From this context we can see how the “whistle-blower”, knowing only half of the information – might incorrectly perceive the conversation. Additionally, there’s a possibility the “whistle-blower” may be ideologically aligned with the same government entities that were trying to block the Ukrainian government from delivering the information in the first place.

What I find most interesting about this story is not the story itself, nor even how it appeared when it did. What’s most interesting to me is – and I think I know the answer already – is to whom the allegiances of this so-called “whistle-blower” truly belong. I know this is all going to sound like a conspiracy theory (but who doesn’t like a good old-fashioned conspiracy theory every now and then?), but I’m guessing whomever the “whistle-blower” is, their allegiance is to none other than Hillary Clinton.

Posh, you say? Well, consider the following scenario: Let’s say you’re a member of the Democratic Party power structure. Your only goal is to field the candidate who can beat Donald Trump in 2020. And let’s say you agreed with the conventional wisdom that Joe Biden, between his Barack Obama VP experience and his much-heralded “blue-collar background” and ability to connect with the all-important “Rust Belt” voter, would be the Democrats’ best chance for 2020. And let’s say that, while you might agree whole-heartedly with the progressive sentiments of the rest of the Democratic field of candidates, you’re well aware that there’s no way in hell any of them could go toe-to-toe with Donald Trump in a general election and come out on top – at best, any of them would make a fine VP choice for Biden.

But six months in you’ve seen Biden not for what his reputation is, but for as he is on the campaign stump: a flat-footed, gaffe-prone doofus with all the persuasive abilities of some back-lot used-car salesman, totally bad news, completely incapable of articulating anything clearly. While certainly it’s early in the game, all you can think of is how the guy is going to handle the rigors of a presidential campaign. The alarm bells are now going off bigly, because you look at the rest of the field the same way a baseball GM looks at his minor league organization. The primaries are only five months away and you’re afraid there won’t be one single candidate Democrats will rally behind, resulting in the nightmare scenario of no one having enough delegates to win the nomination and a brokered convention.

And that’s where Hillary Clinton comes in. Who do you think would benefit more from Joe Biden’s collapse? And don’t think it’s not beneath the Clinton machine’s power and influence in Democratic circles to find a way to nudge Biden to the wings when he clearly can’t see what others are able to clearly see. So my conspiracy theory is that the Party movers and shakers have decided that Biden has to go, gracefully or not, and that this whole “whistle-blower” thing was planted from the outset to highlight Biden’s shake-down with Ukraine, knowing that the media would run with it as yet another example of Donald Trump’s incompetence or White House corruption. When you think of it, it’s classic Clinton.

So it wouldn’t surprise me in the coming weeks to see Joe Biden drop out of the race for “health reasons”, leading to an increasing call for Hillary to inject herself back into the race. You know damned well that she would be the odds-on favorite to get the nomination almost immediately – the stories are already being planted out there. Heck, I can almost write her speech announcing her entry into the race for the Democratic nomination, admitting she made mistakes during the 2016 campaign that are not going to be repeated again, that she considers that campaign a “growing and learning experience”, and that being humbled (I know, you’re almost ready to barf) makes her best-suited for another shot at Donald Trump.

Mark my words, it’s gonna happen.
