Trump's inept advisers
Trump's inept advisers have been a collection of Hillary Clinton supporters, Ted Cruz acolytes, Deep State operatives, establishment bureaucrats, hydroxychloroquine deniers, moles who leak distorted information to the liberal media, and people who lack an understanding of grassroots politics.
These people have severely hindered what President Trump could be achieving, and interfered with his re-election efforts. So far Pence has shown no understanding of the issues or a willingness to do his job to disqualify tainted Electors.

Mostly silent on crucial issues, Pence's primary responsibility was to oversee the response to the Wuhan virus. Yet he never took obvious, basic steps like facilitating access to early treatment against the disease.
Pence presided over the Joint Session of Congress on January 6, 2021, to consider the Electoral College votes to elect the next president. Despite his authority to decline to certify the Electoral fraud, Pence became a puppet for Biden supporters and even pushed through key votes in the middle of the night rather than allow fully prepared debate. The betrayal was so bad that even Trump was highly critical of Pence.
Mitch McConnell, the globalist Majority Leader in the Senate who was unable to obtain passage of any substantive legislation, reported favored a frivolous second impeachment of Trump in violation of the U.S. Constitution and Trump's First Amendment rights of free speech.
Despite how Art. II, Sec. 1 of the Constitution grants state legislatures full authority to correct the unjust election process, Trump's legal team pursues a fruitless approach of litigation instead of a political approach of holding post-election rallies in the swing states to influence the Republican legislators.
Trump's legal team of Pat Cipollone and Rudy Giuliani reportedly blocked Sidney Powell from communicating further with Donald Trump, and from being appointed by him to investigate the Election fraud.
Held too few events in the must-win state of Pennsylvania, where Trump drew massive crowds when he was there (such as 45,000 in Butler, PA, on Oct. 31). Instead, the campaign team wasted precious time in the superfluous, difficult-to-win states of Minnesota and Michigan, and in the easily won state of Florida.
First Debate Prep Team
The first debate prep team for Trump gave him disastrous advice, and perhaps COVID-19 too. None of the team apparently took a prophylactic to protect against COVID-19, such as hydroxychloroquine, and nearly all of the debate prep team contracted the virus. This cost Trump about two weeks of campaigning less than a month from the election.
With different advice and preparation for the second debate, Trump did far better.
Chris Christie, adviser to President Trump for the first presidential debate in 2020, apparently did not take the safe, inexpensive hydroxychloroquine as a prophylactic or early treatment for COVID-19. Instead he relied on the ineffective remdesivir while staying in an expensive hospital for a week after he contracted the disease.
Yet Christie unjustifiably blames policies of President Trump for how Christie did not wear a mask at the White House nominating reception for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, even though Christie could have contracted the disease elsewhere. Judge Barrett and many others did not wear a mask at that same event and did not catch COVID-19.
The new Attorney General Bill Barr came into the Cabinet with high hopes that he would investigate the widespread wrongdoing by opponents of Trump who misused their offices against him. Instead Barr has achieved almost nothing prior to Election Day.
Post-election, Barr announced that he had not seen sufficient evidence of election fraud to change the result, but his department failed to thoroughly investigate for it. Instead, volunteers had to spend their time and limited resources uncovering election fraud which the Supreme has said is "successful precisely because [it is] difficult to detect." Burson v. Freeman, 504 U.S. 191, 208 (1992).
Barr resigned on December 14, 2020, giving just 9 days notice to President Trump before exiting by December 23. Then he refused to appoint a special prosecutor to handle the investigation of Hunter Biden.
Sean P. Conley, D.O.
Sean P. Conley, D.O., is an osteopathic military physician to President Donald Trump. He graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, which is unranked in major categories by the U.S. News & World Report.
Dr. Conley was criticized by the liberal media for allowing President Trump to take the often-successful hydroxychloroquine in May 2020, as a prophylactic. Perhaps as a result, Dr. Conley has reportedly not prescribed hydroxychloroquine for President Trump even though he tested positive for COVID-19 on October 2, 2020, and instead admitted him to a hospital. This has often resulted in death for COVID-19 patients.
An unmarried 31-year-old former model who grew up in wealthy Greenwich, Connecticut as the daughter of a one-time NFL executive, Hope Hicks left the Trump Administration in 2019 after reportedly admitting that she had been telling "white lies" while working at the White House. When she joined the Trump campaign in 2015, she had no experience in politics.
But then she returned in 2020 and apparently advised President Trump for the first presidential debate in 2020, where he promoted vaccination against COVID-19 despite strong opposition on both sides of the political spectrum against that. On October 1, 2020, Hicks announced that she had contracted COVID-19, and subsequently President Trump and the First Lady announced that they had contracted it also.
Trump's campaign manager until he was fired in August 2020, he spent time publicly criticizing conservative Jeff Sessions as he attempted to win back his U.S. Senate seat. This was unhelpful to Trump's own reelection campaign and did not help bolster Trump's base.
Parscale also reportedly oversaw the spending in ineffective ways of most of originally more than $1 billion in campaign cash.
The Chief of Staff to Trump since early March 2020, Mark Meadows' tenure has coincided with a decline by Trump in the polls and his chances for reelection. Merely a coincidental correlation? Meadows has interfered with decisive action by Trump which could have opened up access to hydroxychloroquine for the American people, who instead remain largely sheltered out of fear of being denied the all-important early treatment for the Wuhan virus.
On Saturday, October 3, 2020, Meadows ineptly spoke to reporters "off the record" to contradict what Trump's personal physician had just publicly stated. Trump was furious at Meadows.
On December 22, 2020, Meadows showed up at a sham investigation of signatures on mail-in ballots in Georgia, where state officials allowed 1.3 million of such ballots without any audit of the signatures in order to prevent fraud. But Meadows was not even allowed in the room where the sham comparison was occurring, despite having traveled there from out-of-state. He stayed for only 20 minutes outside the room, without witnessing anything, and then ineptly left without public comment.
John Fleming, M.D., is the adviser to the Chief of Staff on medical issues, and Fleming is a shill for Hillary Clinton-supporting organized medicine. He adamantly opposes allowing Americans to access hydroxychloroquine for prevention against COVID-19, despite the 65-year track record of safety for the medication.
John Bolton is a neocon who became Trump's National Security Adviser after appearing often on television. Bolton's advocacy for foreign wars was never on the same page as Trump's pro-peace approach. But instead of working to advance Trump's superior philosophy, Bolton secretly worked on a self-serving book to harm Trump, which Bolton published after being inevitably fired. Despite trashing the president, he still elicited no praise from the pro-impeachment sham Adam Schiff, who said that Bolton was “no patriot”.
Admiral Brett Giroir
An Assistant Secretary for health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Admiral Brett Giroir manages COVID-19 testing. On Aug. 2, 2020, Adm. Giroir disparaged hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) on Meet the Press, a Sunday morning national television show.
Numerous studies show the effectiveness of HCQ when used early, and studies claiming otherwise have obvious flaws such as using very sick subjects who have had the disease for more than two weeks or healthy patients likely to recover regardless.
|“|| Former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson tried to subvert President Trump’s wishes and justified their actions as trying to “save the country,” former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley says.
In a her new book, With All Due Respect, Haley recalls a closed-door meeting with Tillerson and Kelly where they ask her to join their effort to counter Trump.
During and after his tenure as Chief Strategist, Bannon worked behind the scenes to destabilize Trump's foreign policy team so it could be reshaped according to his own worldview. The most prominent example of this behavior is the massive smear campaign waged against then-National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, which was spearheaded by Breitbart and at Bannon's urging. The smear campaign continued even after Bannon was fired, and it apparently was successful as McMaster was himself fired just seven months later. McMaster would ultimately be replaced by arch-neocon John Bolton, who Bannon promoted both behind the scenes and in public. It is very likely that Bannon's end goal was to get Bolton appointed, so Trump's foreign policy would be re-oriented towards confronting his version of the "Axis of Evil" (China, Iran, and Turkey) in a "clash of civilizations."
On a side note, McMaster's predecessor Michael Flynn is known to have lobbied for Turkey, one member of Bannon's version of the "Axis of Evil," prior to his appointment. It was this lobbying job which became the central factor in Flynn's own ouster. Given Bannon's role in McMaster's ouster, while there is admittedly far less evidence of Bannon playing a role in Flynn's ouster, the possibility of such a role existing cannot be ruled out.
During his tenure as Secretary of State Pompeo, along with John Bolton, Mark Esper, Gina Haspel, and others, shifted Trump's foreign policy in a neocon direction. It was his State Department that was responsible for the diplomatic overtures to the Saudi regime and its allies/puppets, which resulted in the Abraham Accords, a de facto (and unholy) alliance between those countries and Israel designed to incite an armed conflict with Iran, which the neocons have been trying to take out for years on false pretenses.
During his tenure as Ambassador to Germany, Grenell played a leading role in the conspiracy to arrest of Julian Assange. And during his tenure as acting Director of National Intelligence, Grenell and Bill Barr sabotaged Trump's plans to release important evidentiary documents requested by families of 9/11 victims who wished to sue Saudi Arabia over its role in the attacks.
