Totalitarianism in America…, today!

Are you totally sure?

Totally.

It could be characterized as a form of neo-leftist fascism, as well.

According to dictionary.com, totalitarianism means, “A system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state.”

Starting to sound familiar?

Yael Halon of Fox News reports that, “Ex-Clinton adviser [and ex-Al Gore advisor] [and renowned liberal author], Naomi Wolf, warns US becoming ‘totalitarian state before our eyes under Biden.’”

We really have to give Dr. Naomi Wolf some credit here.

Her books and her concerns about this issue were really born at the end of the George W. Bush’s second term in office, back in 2006. Her warnings and concerns then intensified during the Trump years, as she loyally parroted the false, democrat, anti-conservative, and anti-Trump propaganda.

Again, to her credit, she could not intellectually accept the democrat narrative any longer as she witnessed what was occurring, leading up to the 2020 election, and what has taken place since.

Dr. Wolf has now correctly come to realize IT IS THE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE ATTEMPTING TO ESTABLISH A TOTALITARIAN STATE…, not President Trump, and not the conservatives.

“The author tells ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ that Americans must wake up before it is ‘too dangerous to fight back.’”

“Naomi Wolf sounds alarm at the growing power of ‘autocratic tyrants.’ America is becoming a ‘totalitarian state before our eyes’ under President Biden’s leadership, feminist author and former Democratic adviser Naomi Wolf told ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’”

“Wolf, who served as an adviser on Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign in 1996, told host Tucker Carlson that in her view, the United States is swiftly ‘moving into a coup situation, a police state’ as a result of Biden’s ongoing coronavirus-related economic shutdowns. Wolf added that she believes the orders are being improperly extended under the ‘guise of a real medical pandemic.’”

‘“That is not a partisan thing,’ Wolf told Carlson. ‘That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.’”

“Wolf has ramped up her warnings against extended lockdowns on Twitter in recent months. In November, the author wrote on Twitter that Biden’s openness to reinstating additional shutdowns made her question her decision to vote for him.”

I’m sure we’ll be hearing shortly that her Twitter account has been suspended, or cancelled altogether. 

‘“The state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies … which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement, fining us in New York state … the violations go on and on,’ she said.”

“The outspoken liberal, who previously authored a book outlining the ten steps that ‘would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy,’ believes the United States is heading toward what she refers to as ‘step 10.’”

‘“Whether they are on the left or the right, they [totalitarians] do these same ten things,’ Wolf explained, ‘and now we’re at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime … it is step 10 and that is the suspension of the rule of law and that is when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There is no way around it.’”

“Wolf said she has interviewed U.S. citizens of various backgrounds and political affiliations who are in a state of ‘shock and horror’ as ‘autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level are creating this kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of the totalitarian fascism in the ‘20’s,’ she told Carlson.”

‘“They are using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights; rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, all the rights the Constitution guarantees.’”

Dr. wolf also noted during the interview, that nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the rights provided there could be suspended for any reason. 

“Wolf called the United States’ overall response to the coronavirus pandemic ‘completely unprecedented,’ arguing that ‘lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a of totalitarian state right before everyone’s eyes.’”

‘“I really hope we wake up quickly,’ she said, ‘because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.’”

Wow…, those are strong words, coming from someone who has been a self-proclaimed liberal for the majority of her life.

And I’m sure she still thinks of herself as a liberal, although not a “liberal” with totalitarian ambitions.   

In her book “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot,” published in 2007, Wolf takes a historical look at the rise of fascism, outlining 10 steps necessary for a fascist group (or government) to destroy the democratic character of a nation-state. The book details how this pattern was implemented in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and elsewhere, and analyzes its emergence and application of all the 10 steps in American political affairs since the September 11 attacks. Alex Beam wrote in The New York Times: “In the book, Wolf insists that she is not equating [George W.] Bush with Hitler, nor the United States with Nazi Germany, then proceeds to do just that.”

Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries,” published in 2008, was written as a sequel to “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot.” In the book, Wolf looks at times and places in history where citizens were faced with the closing of an open society and successfully fought back.

Leaders frequently attributed to ruling totalitarian regimes, from left to right and top to bottom in picture, include Joseph Stalin, former General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union; Adolf Hitler, former Führer of Germany; Mao Zedong, former Chairman of the Communist Party of China; Benito Mussolini, former Duce of Italy; and Kim Il-sung, the Eternal President of North Korea.

The NEW totalitarians:

It is my opinion that Joe Biden is just a puppet in this whole grand scheme, and that he is just happy to be in the White House, to read what they put on the teleprompter for him, and to sign what they tell him to.

Kamala Harris, also, really doesn’t factor into much of this either.  She was a human prop who was used to garner minority and female votes, and that’s about it.

The real “New totalitarians” are those shown after those two.

I have heard it said that George Soros could be one of the people who really dictates what they want done. This is the real difference betwen this “new totalitarianism” and totalitarian regimes of the past. In the past, these regimes were all led by tyranical “front men.” Now, the people calling the shots are ghosts behind the scenes, but just as dangerous.

The other cast of characters: AOC, “the squad,” Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, et al, along with mainstream media, and the “useful idiots” of the “deep state,” are really into socialism and not so much the totalitarian aspect of what is happening around them, although they all seem to be willing, if not unknowing, participants at this point.  

Again, like the good doctor said, “I really hope we wake up quickly, because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”

“Paging John Durham, paging John Durham.”

Where the hell are you, John Durham?!

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reports that, “[General] Flynn slams Durham, Senate for slow probes: ‘We’re sick and tired of waiting’”

“Generally” speaking, General Flynn is right!

“[General] Flynn spoke out a day after his criminal case was dismissed.”

“Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn expressed impatience over the drawn-out investigations of the Russia probe’s origins that are being carried out by John Durham and the Senate Judiciary Committee, criticizing both for not moving more swiftly.”

“In an interview with FOX Business’ ‘Mornings with Maria [Bartiromo],’ Flynn spoke out on the circumstances surrounding his criminal case — which spun out of the FBI’s Russia investigation — a day after Judge Emmet Sullivan dismissed it due to a pardon from President Trump.”

‘“We’re sick and tired of waiting,’ Flynn said about Durham’s probe.”

Yes, we are General.

First, they told us his report would be ready by late spring…, then by early summer…, then by late summer…, and then by early fall.

Then we were informed he didn’t want to release his report so close to the election.

Well, THE ELECTION IS OVER!!!

IT’S BEEN OVER THREE MONTHS NOW!!!

Please…, I’m dying to hear your new release date and you your latest excuse.

“Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, has been looking into the FBI’s actions in the early stages of their investigation of the Trump campaign for potential ties to Russian interference with the 2016 election.”

As a side note, Connecticut is really just one big suburb of New York City…, so, that’s where Durham is coming from.  It may help put his actions, or lack thereof, in a more understandable perspective. 

“A Department of Justice Inspector General report revealed that the FBI made misrepresentations to a court when seeking a warrant to investigate former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, and documents released pertaining to the FBI’s investigation of Flynn cast doubt on their motives. Handwritten FBI notes indicated that there was an internal question as to whether the bureau interviewed Flynn in order to learn the truth or to get him to lie so authorities could pressure him with prosecution or termination.”

“Flynn was then charged and pleaded guilty to giving false statements regarding his communication with a Russian ambassador.”

This after threatening to destroy his son’s life, as well as his, if he didn’t plead guilty.

What can you say about these slimy, deep state, turds?

“His [Flynn’s] lawyers claimed that notes from former FBI official Peter Strzok showed that then-FBI Director James Comey downplayed Flynn’s calls during the presidential transition with Russia’s ambassador as ‘legit’ during a meeting where then-President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden also weighed in.”

“Durham’s investigation of the Russia probe has yielded a guilty plea from former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith, who admitted to doctoring an email that was used to support an application to monitor Page, but so far there has been nothing in terms of accountability for anyone higher up in the FBI or DOJ.”

Clinesmith was obviously deemed expendable and got thrown under the bus. I’m sure he was compensated quite nicely to “take one for the team” and to keep his mouth shut. 

Clinesmith has since received the harshest of penalties…, probation.

What a joke.

Is there any question we have a two-tiered “justice” system?

‘“I would give a lot of room, space to Bill Barr,’ Flynn said about the attorney general, claiming that Barr has had to deal with a ‘swampy Department of Justice.’ He was less forgiving of Durham and the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been conducting their own investigation.”

I wouldn’t be that empathetic to Bill Barr, General Flynn.  He may have been dealing with a “swampy” Department of (in)Justice, but he was the boss over there after all.

‘“If you’re going to do something, do it,’ Flynn said about the Senate committee. The committee has already held multiple hearings on the subject which have featured testimony from figures including former FBI director James Comey and former acting director Andrew McCabe. The hearings have so far failed to determine who knew what about the FBI’s failures, as the former leaders have claimed ignorance or a lack of memory when asked for names.”

That’s odd!

“McCabe accused Comey, McCabe, and former CIA director John Brennan of being ‘arrogant’ and ‘smug,’ and said they lied to the American people about the Russia investigation while the media enabled them.”

“As for his particular case, Flynn said it is clear what the FBI’s motive was.”

‘“We all know that this was an effort to get Flynn to get Trump,’ he said. Flynn accused government agencies of having ‘an anti-American bent,’ while praising President Trump for his accomplishments in the face of adversity.”

‘“Look at what President Trump has been able to do despite the kinds of assault that he’s been under,’ Flynn said.”

Agreed.

“Flynn also addressed President Barack Obama, who advised Trump during the transition period not to hire Flynn. Flynn claimed that Obama feared him because he wanted to take on Washington, D.C.’s ‘bloated’ bureaucracy.”

‘“He still should be afraid of me,’ Flynn said of Obama, although he did not explain why.”

“Flynn concluded by speaking out about November’s presidential election and was confident that when the legal challenges are done, President Trump will prevail.”

‘“If you ask Mike Flynn on a scale of one to 10 who’s going to be the next president, I’ll tell you that it’s a 10 that it’s going to be Donald Trump,’ he said.”

I had hoped you’d be right, General Flynn, but sadly the democrats managed to keep President Trump from getting a second term. It was imperative to them that he not be re-elected, by hook or by crook.  

All of these “investigations” (Spygate, Hillary’s email, the attempted “deep state” coup by the FBI and DOJ, Hunter Biden, election fraud, etc.) will now quietly die in the “swampy” quicksand of the corrupt “deep state,” democrat, beaurocracy…, with the help of their co-conspirators, the fake news, mainstream media.

Yes, my friends, it’s sad state of affairs…, and it doesn’t look to get better anytime soon.

My, how things have changed.

In the beginning, the states pretty much ruled themselves.  They were like their own separate, little, “countries.” 

But they were connected to each other, physically, economically, and ideologically.   

They recognized the value of banding together for protection internationally and the value of being able to deal with other countries as a single, united, entity.  

So, the states created The Constitution to spell out how this collection of states would function under a single federal government umbrella.

They had no idea how immense and all-encompassing and all-controlling that federal “umbrella” would become.   

Lenore T. Adkins, for the “ShareAmerica” website, writes, ‘“We do need a State Department. We do need a Department of Defense,’ says Karla Jones, director of international relations and federalism at the American Legislative Exchange Council, referring to the federal entities responsible for implementing the country’s foreign and defense policies.”

“The U.S. relies on a system called ‘federalism:’ Powers not granted to the federal government are reserved for the states and the people. It’s an important concept to understand because citizens encounter different levels of government daily, but in several ways.”

It’s also important to recognize that the federal government seems to be expanding its “powers,” and encroaching on states’ rights more and more all the time.

So, what does the federal government do?

Better said, what does the federal government do that we and the states have allowed it to do?

“Only the federal government can regulate interstate and foreign commerce, declare war and set taxing, spending and other national policies.”

But the federal government has accumulated power exponentially over the years.  Power that it was never intended to have.

Let’s take a look at our federal government and how grotesquely “obese” it has become.

Here is a list of the major departments that the federal government is broken into, along with their number of employees, their annual budgets, how many subsidiaries they have and some of the highlights of what they do: 

Department of State

Employees: 69,000

Budget: $52.404 billion

Includes 62 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of Global Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Civil Rights, the Office of Global Women’s Issues, and the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.   

Department of the Treasury

Employees: 86,049

Budget: $20 billion

Includes 17 different offices and bureaus, including the IRS and the federal mints. 

Department of Defense

Employees: 2.86 million     

Budget: $721.5 billion

Includes 23 different agencies and departments, including the Army, Navy and Air Force, and also the National Security Agency.

Department of Justice

Employees: 113,543

Budget: $29.9 billion

Includes 47 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of the Attorney General, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the United States Marshals Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The department is also responsible for running the federal prison system.

Department of the Interior

Employees: 70,003

Budget: $20.7 billion

Includes 62 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of Emergency Management (OEM), the National Parks Service, the Office of Indian Affairs, and the Bureau of Land Management.  NASA (The National Aeronautics and Space Administration) technically falls under the Department of the Interior, although it is an independent agency of the U.S. Federal Government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and space research.

Department of Agriculture

Employees: 105,778

Budget: $155 billion

Includes 20 different offices and agencies, including the Farm Service Agency, the Food Safety and Inspection Service, and the United States Forest Service. 

Department of Commerce

Employees: 43,880

Budget: $9.67 billion

Includes 16 different bureaus and services, including the International Trade Administration, the Bureau of the Census, the Patent and Trademark Office, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the National Weather Service.

Department of Labor

Employees: 17,450

Budget: $12.1 billion

Includes 30 different offices and administrations, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, and Job Corps.

Department of Health and Human Services

Employees: 79,540

Budget: $1.286 trillion

Includes 22 different centers, offices and agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Department of Housing and Urban Development

Employees: 8,416

Budget: $32.6 billion

Includes 11 different offices, including the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, and the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (HUD).

Department of Transportation

Employees: 58,622

Budget: $75.1 billion

Includes 11 different offices and administrations, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Railroad Administration, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Department of Energy

Employees: 12,944

Budget: $27.9 billion

Includes 12 different offices, administrations and programs, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the Cybersecurity, Energy Security and Emergency Response program, and the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Program.

Department of Education

Employees: 3,912

Budget: $68 billion

Includes 19 different offices, boards and councils, including the President’s Advisory Board on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, the National Assessment Governing Board, the Office of Federal Student Aid, and the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Department of Veterans Affairs

Employees: 383,040

Budget: $180 billion

Includes 5 different administrations and offices, including the Veterans Health Administration, the Veterans Benefits Administration, the National Cemetery Administration, and the Veteran Employment Services Office.

Department of Homeland Security

Employees: 229,000

Budget: $51.672 billion

Includes 15 different agencies and offices, including the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Secret Service. 

Then we spend over $8 billion dollars to fund and operate Congress and the Senate per year.  This is for 535 members of Congress and staff members of over 13,000.

We also spend over $7 billion to fund the federal Judiciary per year.  The federal judiciary has over 30,000 employees.

Lastly, we have expenses for The White House, The White House staff (377) and for The President and The Vice-President, which run around $100 million annually.

That’s a total of:

372 different agencies, offices, bureaus, programs and administrations…,

Representing 4,185,091 (that’s over 4 million) total employees and elected officials…,

At a total cost of $2.867 trillion (that $8,600 annually for every man, woman and child).  Now think about how many people don’t pay federal income tax.  That $8,600 goes up pretty quick for the rest of us.

Wow.  Those are some staggering numbers!

And that’s just to support our federal government’s operations. 

We’re not even talking about how much we pay to fund our state and local governments as well!

Remember, these are only the federal government’s costs of doing business.

This does not include the taxes collected and then redistributed back to the American people [and people here illegally] monetarily, or in some other form of value, like infrastructure, housing, etc.  

Please note:  In American public finance, discretionary spending is government spending implemented through an appropriations bill. This spending is an optional part of fiscal policy, in contrast to entitlement programs (non-discretionary) for which funding is mandatory and determined by the number of eligible recipients.

Please be aware that there were only three original departments created back in 1789, the State Department, the Treasury Department, and the War Department, which evolved into the Department of Defense.   

All of the other departments were created at much later dates.

The Department of the Interior was created in 1849, followed by the Department of Agriculture in 1862.

Next was the Department of Justice in 1870, followed by the Department of Labor in 1913.  

1913 was also the first year for federal income tax as we know it.  We’ll talk more about taxes later.

In 1937 the Department of commerce was created, followed by the Department of Health and Human Services in 1953.  

After this is when the federal government really started to balloon.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development was created in 1965.

The Department of Transportation was created in 1967.

Department of Energy in 1977.

Department of Education in 1979.

Department of Veteran’s Affairs in 1989.

And the Department of Homeland Security in 2002.    

I mentioned earlier we’d get to talking about taxes…, well, here we are.

Here is the history of federal taxes:

In order to help pay for its war effort in the American Civil War, Congress imposed its first personal income tax in 1861.  It was part of the Revenue Act of 1861 (3% of all incomes over $800, rescinded in 1872). Congress also enacted the Revenue Act of 1862, which levied a 3% tax on incomes above $600, rising to 5% for incomes above $10,000. Rates were raised in 1864. This income tax was then repealed in 1872.

So, at this point, we’re back to no federal income taxes.

Forty-one years later, the 16th Amendment was ratified in 1913, which states:

“The Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”

So, now the taxation gravy train was off and running!

Congress then enacted an income tax in October 1913 as part of the Revenue Act of 1913, levying a 1% tax on net personal incomes above $3,000, with a 6% surtax on incomes above $500,000.

By 1918, the top rate of the income tax was increased to 77% (on income over $1,000,000, equivalent of $16,717,815 in 2018 dollars to finance World War I. The average rate for the rich however, was 15%.

During World War II, Congress introduced payroll withholding and quarterly tax payments.

A comedic representation by Clifford K. Berryman of the debate to introduce a sales tax in the United States in 1933 and end the income tax.

I have personally argued my support of a a national sales tax (or a consumption tax) as opposed to a federal income tax. Please see my prior blogs on this subject.

At first, the income tax was incrementally expanded by Congress, and then inflation automatically raised most persons into tax brackets formerly reserved for the wealthy until income tax brackets were adjusted for inflation. Income tax now applies to almost two-thirds of the population. The lowest-earning workers, especially those with dependents, pay no income taxes as a group and actually get a small subsidy from the federal government because of child credits and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

While the government was originally funded via tariffs upon imported goods, tariffs now represent only a minor portion of federal revenues.

In the 1930s, the New Deal introduced Social Security to rectify the first three problems (retirement, injury-induced disability, or congenital disability). It introduced the FICA tax as the means to pay for Social Security.

In the 1960s, Medicare was introduced to rectify the fourth problem (health care for the elderly). The FICA tax was increased in order to pay for this expense.

The total federal budget for 2020 is $4.79 trillion, but we ALWAYS spend more than what we budget. That’s why our federal deficit is in the neighborhood of $26 trillion right now…, but that’s another blog for another day.

Remember I mentioned there are over 4 million total employees and elected officials employed by the federal government…, and more than half of these politicians and bureaucrats live in Washington DC and the surrounding areas of Maryland and northern Virginia.

These areas see a consistent voter registration rate of 90-95% democrat and only 5% republican.

When you hear the term “deep state,” this is what they’re referring to. 

A bureaucratic workforce that is loyal to the democrat party, regardless of who the American people choose to run the country.

The “deep state” is into self-preservation and expanding itself (bigger government).  That is why they have hitched their wagon to the democrat party, and why you can always expect the democrats to pretend to solve any issue by throwing more government, and more of our money, at it.     

“Here endeth the lesson,” as Sean Connery said, when he played a Gman in “The Untouchables.” 

That’s when being a Gman was still an honorable profession!

RIP Sean Connery.

Treasonous James Comey…, otherwise known as “Notorious TJC.”

Former FBI [Federal Bureau of Incompetence] Director James Comey testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday as part of the committee’s probe into the origins of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

James Comey isn’t “incompetent,” however…, he knew exactly what he was doing.

According to CBS News, “Comey, who was fired by President Trump in 2017, oversaw the investigation, called ‘Crossfire Hurricane,’ which was eventually taken over by special counsel Robert Mueller.”

Yes…, Mr. Mueller is very, very “special,” if you know what I mean.

In my opinion, “Crossfire Hurricane” would have been more aptly named “Excrement Storm.”

“A report by the inspector general for the Justice Department [Sometimes known as The Department of Injustice.] published in December found 17 ‘significant inaccuracies and omissions’ in the FBI’s handling of FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) applications to surveil Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide.”

Oh…, only 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions?”

Well, just let me know if we get to 20 “significant inaccuracies and omissions,” because that’s my limit.

“The report also found, however, the FBI was justified in launching the investigation and showed no political bias.”

FOUND NO POLITICAL BIAS???!!!

Unbelievable.

“Comey repeatedly told the committee he had been unaware of major problems with each of four applications the FBI submitted in 2016 to 2017 to eavesdrop on Page.”

I just have a quick question for you Mr. Comey.

WHAT ELSE DID YOU HAVE GOING ON THAT WAS SOOO IMPORTANT THAT AN INVESTIGATION INVOLVING SPYING ON THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DIDN’T DESERVE YOUR COMPLETE AND UNDIVIDED ATTENTION??????!!!!!!

“He said he had been overly confident that the surveillance process was working as it should. He noted that Page accounted for just ‘a slice’ of the investigation but that he wouldn’t have signed off on the surveillance had he known of the problems.”

AGAIN…, WHAT ELSE DID YOU HAVE GOING ON THAT WAS SOOO IMPORTANT THAT AN INVESTIGATION INVOLVING SPYING ON THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DIDN’T DESERVE YOUR COMPLETE AND UNDIVIDED ATTENTION??????!!!!!!

I’m just saying…, wouldn’t you think everything you did in this case would be double checked, then triple checked, with every “i” dotted and every “t” crossed?

“Comey also acknowledged ‘concerning’ and ‘embarrassing’ problems in the handling of surveillance applications.”

HELL YES THESE WERE “CONCERNING AND EMBARRASSING PROBLEMS!”

And that’s putting it mildly.

‘“In the main, it was done by the book, it was appropriate and it was essential that it be done,’ Comey said.”

“Done by the book?”

Can we see this “book,” Mr. Comey?

And what “book” exactly are you referring to…, “A traitor’s guide to undermining a president?”

Sally Yates…, are you kidding me?!

On night two of the democrat national “convention,” which no one is watching apparently, Sally Yates was chosen to speak for roughly three minutes.

ayates 1

This is the Sally Yates who was the Deputy Attorney General under President Obama, and the Acting Attorney General at the very beginning of the Trump administration.

She started off by saying, “I worked to advance our nation’s promise of equal justice.”

ayates 2

[You may have “worked” at this, Sally…, but you didn’t work very hard or very effectively…, at least from my point of view.]

[“Equal justice” under the law is really only a mythical concept to most Americans at this point.  We haven’t seen equal justice applied to the Washington crowd for decades.]

[She was fired 10 days into the Trump administration for refusing to enforce] “President Trump’s shameful and unlawful Muslim travel ban.”

[Which was later upheld by the Supreme Court as being legal…, so, not really “unlawful” now was it, Sally?]

[You’re allowed to consider the ban “shameful,” because that’s a matter of opinion…, but for someone who rose all the way up to Attorney General of The United States of America to call something “unlawful” when it’s not is what’s really shameful and disingenuous.]

“This was the start of his relentless attacks on our democratic institutions and countless dedicated public servants.”

[Excuse me!  “His relentless attacks?!]

[From day one, and even before that, President Trump has been the subject of a coordinated attack by democrats, by deep state officials in the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA, and many other governmental departments, and by the fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media.]

ayates 7

ayates 8

ayates 9

[These attacks took the shape of “Russian collusion” claims, which evolved into the Mueller investigation, which lasted two years, and then the baseless impeachment sham.]

ayates 18

“Like me, these people didn’t swear an oath to a person or a party.  Public servants promised to defend our Constitution and uphold our laws, and work on behalf of the American people.”

[The oath she and all of her fellow public servants took was this:]

[I, ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.  So help me God.]

[Based on this oath, it has become quite clear that you, Ms. Yates, and many of your “swampy” co-conspirators, failed to live up to your oaths. Your actions flew in the face of The Constitution of The United States, and your behavior was nothing short of treasonous.]

ayates 17

“From the moment President trump took office, he’s used his position to benefit himself rather than our country. He’s trampled on the rule of law, trying to weaponize our Justice Department to attack his enemies and protect his friends.”

ayates 22

[What do you call “standing up to Vladimir Putin?”]

[Do you call it “standing up” like when President Obama was caught on a hot mic apologizing to then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev by whispering, “after my election I’ll have more flexibility,” regarding missile defense negotiations.  Medvedev replied that he would “transmit this information to Vladimir,” as in Putin, the current president who was prime minister at the time.”]

[Is that what you call “standing up to Vladimir Putin, Ms. Yates?]

[Or, how about the Obama administration (which includes you, Ms. Yates, and the FBI, and the DOJ) having knowledge of Russian interference into the 2016 election, but failing to alert the Trump campaign of this, and failing to do anything about this interference, really, other than attempt to use the whole scenario to falsely entrap President Trump into the fairy tale of “Russian collusion.”]

ayates 13

[Is that what you call “standing up to Vladimir Putin, Ms. Yates?]

“His constant attacks on the FBI, the free press, Inspector Generals, federal judges…, they all have one purpose…, to remove any check on his abuse of power…, bankrupting our nation’s moral authority at home and abroad.”

[I’m sorry, Ms. Yates, but I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.]

[You obviously have NO shame.]

[And, “the free press?!  Are you referring to the propaganda arm of the democrat party?]

[And there is obviously nothing you wouldn’t say to help you and all of your disgustingly “swampy” friends get back to being in control.]

“Our country doesn’t belong to him…, it belongs to us, and Joe Biden embraces that.”

[And by “us” you mean the democrats and the deep state, right, Ms. Yates?]

“We need a president who respects our laws.”

[We already have a president who respects our laws, Ms. Yates!]

[President Trump is ALL about law and order.]

[What you really want is a president who respects your laws, not THE law.  You want a president who respects the unwritten laws of “the swamp…,” a president who will look the other way and make sure that “justice” is imparted according to “the swamp’s” desires, and not in accordance with equal, or fair, justice.

“Listen, do you want to know a secret?”

The Beatles (and MrEricksonRules) asked these questions (sung along to the Beatles’ song by the same name):

“Listen, do you want to know a secret?”

“Do you promise not to tell?”

“Whoa-oh-oh, closer”

“Let me whisper in your ear”

“Say the words you long to hear”

Whoa-oh-oh, TREASON!

These deep state dems are all guilty!

They’re all guiltier than hell,

Whoa-oh-oh, TREASON!

aclass 20

Kind of catchy, isn’t it?

We hear about things being TOP SECRET and CLASSIFIED all of the time.

But who are these people with the power to withhold information from We The People, The Congress, The Senate, and even The President?

If we have learned anything over the last three plus years, it’s that these deep state bureaucrats are way too political, have way too much power, and feel they are above the law.

aclass 19

None of these people were elected…, and it seems that none of them feel accountable to anyone except the democrat hierarchy.

In this latest case, we have Senator Ron Johnson, of Wisconsin, requesting that an email from Susan Rice (Obama’s National security Advisor and former US Ambassador to The United Nations) be fully declassified.

I’m actually surprised the email in question wasn’t already deleted or had somehow disappeared, ala the Hillary Clinton emails.

According to Edmund DeMarche and Brooke Singman of Fox News, “On January 20, the last day of the Obama administration, outgoing National Security Adviser Susan Rice sat down to write her final memo.”

According to an anonymous source, Susan Rice starts of her memo by saying, “I have always loved you, Barack…”

Ha!

aclass 2

Anyway…, let’s get back to the matter of declassifying her entire email.

“Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., asked the Trump administration to declassify the entire email that President Obama’s former national security Susan Rice sent herself just before her boss was about to leave office, a report said.”

“Politico reported Monday that it viewed Johnson’s letter, which requested that Rice’s entire email that touched on the January 5, 2017, meeting be released. He said the email summarized the meeting where Obama and his top officials discussed the Michael Flynn case. Flynn was President Trump’s first national security adviser.”

“Earlier this month, Attorney General William Barr’s Justice Department dismissed the case against Flynn, who was seen as the key prosecution witness from Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign.”

aclass 7

“[President] Trump has been trying to go on the offensive after a string of developments he says bolstered his claim that the Russian collusion investigation conducted was nothing more than a political witch hunt.”

And President Trump shouldn’t even have to go on any “offensive.”  It has now been shown that none of the people who testified regarding “Russian collusion” testified to any ties between President Trump or anyone in his campaign or administration to Russia.

It absolutely was just a hoax and a witch hunt.

aclass 14

aclass 10

But it was more…, I don’t think there is any reason to downplay the actions of these scumbags.

It was a coordinated coup and treason.

“The White House meeting on Jan. 5, 2017 has been the source of speculation.”

“The roster in attendance included [President] Obama, Vice President Biden, Rice, then-FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, then-CIA Director John Brennan and then-Director of National Intelligence James Capper and they talked about the Flynn investigation.”

Man!  If that isn’t a motley crew, then I don’t know what is!

“Obama asked Yates and Comey to ‘stay behind,’ and said he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador, about sanctions, an exhibit in the DOJ’s motion to dismiss the Flynn case said.”

Do you see the level of conspiracy here?

aclass 15

Do you see the level of hypocrisy here?

aclass 8

President Trump is vilified if he even overtly makes a public suggestion regarding what his attorney general should do.  And here we see the directors of all of these agencies in cahoots with each other and being directed by then President Obama.

Just a bunch of corrupt puppets and an even more corrupt puppet master.

Amazing.

But President Trump is impeached over some perfectly valid call with the president of The Ukraine?

Again…, amazing.

“Biden was recently asked about the meeting after the Trump administration released the Obama-era officials behind the Flynn’s ‘unmasking.’  Biden told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he was ‘aware that there was, that they’d asked for, an investigation. But that’s all I know about it.’”

aclass 11

“Rice and other Obama officials have insisted that they did nothing wrong and that ‘unmasking’ is routine.”

Oh, really?

aclass 13

aclass 18

You mean they didn’t just give themselves up walk themselves into a federal prison?

That’s odd.

And, yes…, we know now that “unmasking” was routine for Obummer and his seven dwarves…, but it shouldn’t be “routine” for anybody.

“Routinely” unmasking US citizens, and especially political rivals, is definitely an abuse of this power.

“Johnson has been a vocal critic of the Obama administration and its role in the Flynn fallout. He recently told Fox News that he has long felt that there ‘has been a concerted effort to sabotage’ the Trump White House.”

Ya think?

“Johnson wrote the letter to Barr and pointed out that that most of Rice’s email was already declassified, but a portion remains a mystery.”

A mystery?

Who is determining that this portion of her email remain inaccessible and a “mystery?”

What is it that the deep staters are so worried about in her email?

Who are they trying to protect?

It sure isn’t President Trump or anyone in his administration, I can assure you of that!

If you’re a MrEricksonRules follower, you already know I’m not a fan of Susan Rice, to put it very mildly.

The FBI and DOJ “chickens” are coming home to roost.

aflynn

Yes folks…, we’ve all heard of a chicken coop.  What we have here is a chicken coup!

A “coup d’état” that is!

aflynn 5

I have written many blogs dealing with “the swamp” and “the deep state…,” but the extent of this unholy cabal, as I am coming to understand it, is far worse than I could have ever imagined.

More concerning is the fact that “the deep state” isn’t all that deep, or hidden.  It turns out “the deep state” is really those bureaucrats, and it’s the majority of them, aligned with the democrat party.  That’s all.

aflynn 20

The FBI is full of these treasonous rats.

So is the DOJ.

So is the whole, federal, bureaucratic mess.

It’s absolutely disgusting.

aflynn 23

The process of “draining the swamp” is no small task.

aflynn 16

We witnessed a long parade of “swamp rats” trotted out during the fraudulent impeachment circus.

People often wonder how the German people capitulated to the horrible whims of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party.

Well, here you go.

First you have to assemble a group of like-minded people to help you carry out your plans and help to steer the corrupt “ship of state.”

These directors make and enforce “the rules.”  Their followers are “the tools” and the rest are “the fools.”

For the Nazi Party it was people like Heinrich Himmler (SS Commander), Hermann Göring (Hitler’s righthand man and chosen successor), Joseph Goebbels (News media propaganda Minister), Martin Bormann (Hitler’s Chief of Staff), and the list goes on.

For today’s Democrat Party, those people would equate to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, James Comey, James Brennan, James Clapper, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Christopher Wray, Rod Rosenstein, Peter Strzok, et al.

aflynn 19

If you don’t go along with their way of thinking, you are attacked by the media and labeled a traitor, a racist, a sexist, an idiot, etc.

aflynn 27

You may then be harassed by an arm of “their government” and potentially framed, ruined financially by “their government,” and even possibly imprisoned, ala exactly what has happened to General Flynn, along with many others in the democrats’ attempt to take down President Trump.

aflynn 8

According to Charles Creitz of Fox News, “Sean Hannity opened Wednesday’s edition of [his nightly show] ‘Hannity’ by declaring that former National Security Adviser [General] Michael Flynn was ‘unfairly and unjustly targeted by deep state bureaucrats’ after a bombshell [collection] of documents was unsealed in the case.”

My first questions would be why were these documents sealed and who sealed them in the first place?

Who had access to them?

Who had access to them, and undoubtedly knew they exonerated General Flynn, and did nothing?

Who had access to them, and undoubtedly knew they exonerated General Flynn. while unmasking the FBI and the DOJ as renegade and treasonous’ “deep state” entities, and did nothing?

“The Justice Department turned over the documents just this week, even though a February 2018 standing order in the case from United States District Court for the District of Columbia Emmet Sullivan required the government to turn over any exculpatory materials in its possession that pertained to Flynn. Fox News is told even more exculpatory documents are forthcoming, as Attorney General Bill Barr continues to oversee the DOJ’s investigation into the handling of the Flynn case,” according to Gregg Re.

What was the DOJ and William Barr waiting for? That standing order to turn over documents dates back over two years ago!

Two years ago!

I would expect this type of indifference regarding the law from the Clintons…, but The Department of Justice?!

aflynn 18

That’s why the jury is still currently out on Attorney General William and his underlings.

We’ll see about him and his quite shortly, and what their true colors are.

Our current FBI Director Christopher Wray is another story, however.

There can be no doubt that Christopher Wray has played a part in the effort to cover-up all of the FBI’s treasonous activities…, thus making him a treasonous co-conspirator in all of this.

aflynn 3

‘“Corrupt agents from Jim Comey’s FBI were discussing strategies on how to set General Flynn up on what we call a perjury trap,’ Hannity said, later adding, ‘truth be told, it was an ambush. It was an illegal, abuse of power, corrupt ambush.’”

aflynn 7

‘“According to one handwritten note, an unnamed agent asked, “Well, what is our goal here? … Is it truth, admission or to get him to lie?” To get him to lie, is that our goal? So we can prosecute him or get him fired? Is that the FBI’s role?’ the host continued.”

Gregg Re of Fox News reports that, “The handwritten notes — written by the FBI’s former head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap after a meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Fox News is told — further suggested that agents planned in the alternative to get Flynn ‘to admit to breaking the Logan Act’ when he spoke to then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period.”

aflynn 4

“The handwritten notes are devastating evidence of an effort to disregard all standing protocols and rules, Sidney Powell said.”

“Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley called the document’s implications ‘chilling.’”

Charles Creitz continues, ‘“Ultimately that perjury trap was not a success,’ Hannity went on. ‘Agents saw no indication at all that the national security adviser was lying. They didn’t believe he was lying. They said they didn’t believe he was lying.’”

“Nevertheless, the host claimed, then-FBI Director James Comey tried to ‘exploit the chaos’ inside the then-transitioning Trump White House team to get to Flynn, which Hannity added was something Comey would never do to Barack Obama or George W. Bush.”

“Hannity went on to claim that Comey, thus emboldened, ‘turned the screws’ on Flynn by threatening to lock him up and then threatening to prosecute his son, Michael Flynn, Jr.”

‘“They were hell-bent on punishing anyone and everyone inside the Trump administration,’ he said.”

Former President Barack Obama’s name rarely surfaces in all of these discussions about treason and crimes at the highest levels, but his name should be raised and he should be held accountable as well.

Obama

aflynn 13

aflynn 12

aflynn 28

Gregg Re reminds us that, “Former President Obama personally had warned the Trump administration against hiring Flynn, and made clear he was ‘not a fan,’ according to multiple officials. Obama fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014.”

So, President Obama told President Trump he wasn’t “a fan” of General Flynn, huh?

No wonder why President Trump brought Flynn on board!

“One of Flynn’s interviewing agents was Peter Strzok, who has since been fired from the bureau after his anti-Trump text messages [with Lisa Page] came to light.”

aflynn 22

“Flynn has sought to withdraw his guilty plea and has been seeking exoneration, saying the FBI engaged in ‘egregious misconduct.’ Flynn, who has said more recently that he did not lie to the FBI, pleaded guilty in late 2017 as mounting legal fees pushed him to sell his home.”

“Flynn has since obtained new counsel — and his old attorneys, it emerged this week, then failed to turn over thousands of documents to his new lawyer, Sidney Powell. Powell has maintained that Flynn’s old lawyers at Covington & Burling had conflicts of interest and were otherwise ineffective, including by not focusing on Strzok’s evident bias.”

Flynn’s “old attorneys,” Covington and Burling LLP, were obviously wolves in sheep’s clothing, as far as Flynn’s defense was concerned.  With “friends” like that, who needs enemies?  Covington and Burling LLP were undoubtedly deep state “tools” in this case, and they should be disbarred, honestly.

Sara Carter also brought to light that, “Last week, another batch of documents withheld by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team on Flynn was turned over to his defense that allegedly reveals that the retired three-star general did not commit any crimes, as suggested by Department of Justice prosecutors.”

Well, there’s NO doubt that Mueller and his team are another collection of “tools.”

‘“It’s just absolutely appalling what these agents, and then special counsel operatives, did to General Flynn,’ Powell told Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ on Wednesday night. ‘It’s abuse of their authority at every turn.’”

“[Andrew] McCabe, who has admitted to lying to FBI investigators in a leak investigation, was fired for multiple violations of the FBI’s ethics code.”

“He has not faced any criminal charges.”

Next time you’re interviewed by the FBI, try lying to them and sees what happens to you.

“The Flynn revelations come as the Justice Department separately has revealed that the FBI’s investigation into former Trump aide Carter Page was riddled with fatal errors — and even featured an ex-FBI attorney deliberately doctoring an email from the CIA to make it seem as though Page’s Russian contacts were nefarious.”

“In fact, Carter Page was an informant to the CIA about those contacts — a key detail the FBI omitted when it told the surveillance court about Page’s overseas trips.”

“For his part, after years of legal setbacks and sustained attacks on his patriotism, Flynn took a moment to savor the day’s news on social media. He tweeted a video late Wednesday showing a slow pan to a waving American flag, with no audio but the wind.”

In case you’re not really too familiar with General Flynn…, here’s a little bit about him.

aflynn 28

Michael Flynn was born December 24, 1958, on Christmas Eve!  He is a retired United States Army Lieutenant General (3 star general) who was briefly the National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump.

General Flynn’s military career included a key role in shaping U.S. counter-terrorism strategy and dismantling insurgent networks in Afghanistan and Iraq.  He served as the 18th Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, serving from July 2012 until his retirement from the military in August 2014. He became a senior advisor to Trump during his presidential campaign and served as the National Security Advisor from January 23 to February 13, 2017.

General Flynn was preceded as the National Security Advisor by the ever “swampy” Susan “I never met a lie too big to tell” Rice.

Flynn resigned after information surfaced that he had [allegedly] misled the FBI and Vice President Mike Pence about the nature and content of his communications with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

Flynn was commissioned in the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant in military intelligence in 1981. His military assignments included multiple tours at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, with the 82nd Airborne Division and Joint Special Operations Command. He also served with the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii, at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana, and the Army Intelligence Center at Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Flynn served as the director of intelligence at the Joint Task Force in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom) and the Iraq War (Operation Iraqi Freedom).

General Flynn was asked in February 2016 to serve as an adviser to the Trump campaign.

As one of the keynote speakers during the first night of the 2016 Republican National Convention, Flynn gave what the Los Angeles Times described as a “fiery” speech, in which he stated: “We are tired of Obama’s empty speeches and his misguided rhetoric. This has caused the world to have no respect for America’s word, nor does it fear our might.” He accused Obama of enabling the Islamic State at the time.  Flynn went on to criticize political correctness and joined the crowd in a chant of “U-S-A! U-S-A!”

During the speech, Flynn launched a blistering attack on Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. He led the crowd in chants of “Lock her up!”  He called for Clinton to withdraw from the race, saying that “if I did a tenth of what she did, I’d be in jail today.” He repeated in subsequent interviews that she should be “locked up.”

aflynn 11

The Washington Post has predictably come to “the swamp’s” defense and declared, “No, Michael Flynn wasn’t ‘set up,’” in an opinion piece by Randall D. Eliason.

aflynn1a

And who is Randall Eliason?

According to his bio at American University, in Washington D.C., where he is currently an adjunct professor, Eliason spent over 20 years as an Assistant United States Attorney and as a Chief of that section, for the District of Columbia.

Interestingly enough, Eliason is the recipient of numerous awards and commendations from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Hmmm.

He is also a frequent media commentator on PBS, NBC, NPR, CNN and MSNBC.

Can anyone say “liberal propaganda, fake news?”

Basically, Eliason can be classified as “a tool.”

So, what’s the bottom line here?

The bottom line here is that the Obama administration, the FBI and the DOJ took the law into their own hands in an attempt to break General Flynn as a part of their effort to undo the 2016 election and Donald Trump’s presidency.

Like I said before…, the absolute bottom line here is treason against The United States of America and the American people…, and if nobody goes to jail for any of this, then “the deep state” are really the ones running the show, and our country is in serious trouble.

Dumb, dumber, dumbest!

I’m sorry, Leslie Marshall, for Fox News, but I’m referring to an opinion piece you recently wrote, titled, “Leslie Marshall: Hillary Clinton endorsement of Biden is bad news for Trump – Democrats uniting to defeat him.”

First, a little bit about Ms. Marshall.  Per Fox News, “Leslie Marshall joined Fox News Channel as a contributor in 2009; providing analysis on both political and social issues from a liberal point of view. A nationally syndicated talk host, whose program, ‘The Leslie Marshall Show’ can be heard on radio, stream, ‘Tune In,’ ‘The Progressive Voices Radio Network,’ and ‘The Armed Forces Radio Network.’”

abidenhill 4

The Armed Forces Radio Network? Talk about liberal propaganda fed to a captive audience.  I guess someone should be looking into the selected programming for our Armed Forces, and at least ensure that conservative voices get equal time.

“The swamp” [the deep state] never sleeps.

Anyway…, back to our confused and/or propagandistic Ms. Marshall.

abidenhill 2

(Marshall shown here with Sean Hannity to her left and Michelle Malkin to her right.)

According to Leslie Marshall, “Hillary Clinton’s endorsement Tuesday of former Vice President Joe Biden in the November presidential election is just the latest sign of Democratic unity that will be needed to send President Trump into political retirement.”

abidenhill 5

Wow!

Hillary Clinton endorsing Creepy Joe Biden is an absolute journalistic bombshell, Ms. Marshall!

NO KIDDING!

abidenhill 8

WHO ELSE WAS HILLARY GOING TO ENDORSE…, OPRAH?  MICKEY MOUSE?  PRINCE HARRY?  ALEC BALDWIN?  WHOOPI GOLDBERG?

I mean, c’mon…, this isn’t news at all.

DUMB.

Marshall continues by saying, “Biden has also picked up the endorsements of many other prominent Democrats, including candidates who ran against him for the presidential nomination this year, former President Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, and even Rep Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez of New York – one of the most progressive members of Congress.”

OH REEEEALLY?!

abidenhill 10

You actually mean to tell me that, “Biden has also picked up the endorsements of many other prominent Democrats?”

AMAZING!

AGAIN, WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK IT?!

abidenhill 3

She continues, “The endorsement of Biden by Clinton – a former first lady, senator and secretary of state – may not get Biden many additional votes, but it’s likely to help him raise the millions of dollars he needs to defeat Trump.”

Actually, Ms. Marshall, the endorsement of Creepy Joe by Hillary will probably end up costing him votes, and rich democrats were going to pour money into Biden’s campaign regardless of Hillary’s endorsement.

Stating the obvious and now stating inaccuracies are not good traits for a journalist to project.

“Trump’s continuing insulting attacks against Clinton – including regularly referring to her as “Crooked Hillary” and falsely accusing her of wrongdoing – are strong motivators to her to work for the defeat of a president she clearly views as unfit for the nation’s highest office.”

“FALSELY ACCUSING HER OF WRONGDOING?!”

Excuse me…, please give me a minute while I catch my breath.

DUMBER.

LOCK HER UP!

LOCK HER UP!

LOCK HER UP!

abidenhill 6

“Additionally, Clinton and Biden worked well together in President Obama’s administration and hold similar policy positions that differ dramatically from Trump’s. The sober and fact-based leadership styles of the two Democrats are far more similar to each other than to the erratic and unpredictable shoot-from-the-hip style favored by Trump.”

abidenhill 17

Yes…, Biden’s and Clinton’s anti-America, pro new world order, Pro-Russia and Pro-China positions differ dramatically from President Trump’s positions.

“It’s a safe bet that with or without the Clinton endorsement, Biden could count on strong support from Democratic voters in November.”

Are you kidding right now with this comment, Ms. Marshall?

“Biden could count on strong support from Democratic voters in November?”

abidenhill 9

YA THINK?!!!

DUMBEST.

“Many independents and even some Republicans want to see Trump defeated. For example, former Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona told The Washington Post he will not be voting for Trump and hinted at supporting Biden.”

abidenhill 11

All I have to say to this comment is, these “independents” need to climb down off of their fence and pick a side.  Either you’re pro-America (Republican/conservative) or anti-America (Democrat/liberal).  It’s a pretty straight forward choice.

And yes…, RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) like Jeff Flake and Mitt Romney will probably not be voting for President Trump.

Again…, is there any news here?

Marshall continues by informing us that, “Biden needs money for ads on TV, the web, radio, print publications and direct mail. TV ads are expensive and particularly crucial now that many people are homebound and watching more TV than usual due to shelter-in-place orders imposed to combat the coronavirus pandemic.”

So, you’re saying that Creepy Joe needs money to run ads on TV and radio?

And that these ads are expensive?

abidenhill 12

Who exactly subscribes to your opinion newsletter, Ms. Marshall…, people that have recently come out of decades-long comas?  People who have been living off the grid since World War II?  Mindless democrats?

I guess I’m going to have to go with mindless democrats.

She concludes her remarks by saying, “A lot of surprises can happen between now and November.”

abidenhill 7

Thank you for that bit of wisdom, Ms. Marshall.

And, “I don’t know if Joe Biden will be our next president, but if I were a Trump supporter I’d be very nervous about the prospect.”

To this I would say, right back at ya Ms. Marshall…, right back at ya.

abidenhill 14

abidenhill 13

I don’t normally berate articles that I refer to in my blogs, but this piece truly stands out.

I would venture to say that the article by Leslie Marshall, here, could have been written by any naïve and/or confused high school newspaper reporter…, with all due respect to naïve and/or confused high school newspaper reporters.

Do they have newspapers in middle school?

WINNING!

The White House is “smoking out the rats!”

alist 8

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “The Trump administration has been working with allies to assemble lists of officials [unelected bureaucrats] it considers ‘disloyal’ to the president and come up with potential replacements, according to an Axios report.”

alist 2

The only thing I have to say about this is…,

“IT’S ABOUT FRIGGIN’ TIME!!!!!

DRAIN THE SWAMP!

DRAIN THE SWAMP!

“The report, based on anonymous sources [Are there any other kind of sources when dealing with the fake news?!], alleges that the memos have circulated in the White House, produced by individuals including a GOP Senate staffer and a group of conservative activists named ‘Groundswell,’ which is led by Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.”

You go, Ginni Thomas!

And “alleges?”

As if The White House or this conservative group is guilty of anything.

“Anonymous sources” is fake news code words for “our embedded deep state, swampy, anti-Trump, “Benedict Arnolds.”

The exact same people President Trump wants to “reassign.”

alist 4

“On Fox News’ ‘Outnumbered Overtime’ with Harris Faulkner, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway defended [President] Trump’s right to hire and fire as he wishes and emphasized that the president is the person who sets executive branch policy.”

‘“We should not have people in government who are undermining the president’s agenda. The president got elected because his ideas prevailed,’ Conway said, when asked about the report. ‘If you want your views to become policy, you need to put your name on the ballot and become president of the United States.’”

Amen to that, sister!

alist 4

“According to Axios, Thomas at one point handed one of the memos produced by Groundswell directly to President Trump, which included the names of several conservatives loyal to Trump which the group recommended that he hire for various positions, including former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke for a senior role in the Department of Homeland Security.”

OMG!!!  She actually handed it to the President?! How dare she!

And who was the person who witnessed this and passed the information on to Axios?

PRECISELY ONE OF THE DISLOYAL DEEP STATERS THE WHITE HOUSE IS TALKING ABOUT!!!  THAT’S WHO!

How can any organization operate effectively with a bunch people intent on making that organization fail operating from within that organization?

These swampy bureaucrats seem to think they have some sort of right to whatever position they have.

These people are not elected.

And again…, like Kellyanne Conway stated, President Trump has the right to hire and fire as he wishes and he is the person who sets executive branch policy.

“This development comes on the heels of news, also reported by Axios, that the new head of the Office of Presidential Personnel, Johnny McEntee, asked White House aides to identify members of the government who might be anti-Trump.”

Again…, so what?

In many other countries these people would be lined-up and shot or jailed.

In President Trump’s case, he just wants these rats reassigned or let go so he can work without their constant interference and undermining.

Not too much to ask for I don’t think.

Do these people think President Obama was loading up his staff with people that were opposed to him or his policies?

Do these people expect us to believe that anyone opposed to President Obama or his policies wasn’t shown the door pretty quickly?

I wouldn’t even hold it against President Obama.  It’s something I would expect.

“One memo that Axios reports on specifically involves the former nominee to be Treasury Department undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes Jessie Liu. The memo spelled out why Liu was not sufficiently pro-Trump at her previous post as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.”

“Reasons included Liu not pursuing criminal referrals that came from the Senate Judiciary Committee on the heels of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, asking for jail time for ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn, not indicting former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and more.”

“Trump later withdrew Liu’s nomination to the Treasury Department post.”

Again…, so what?  And good. These nominations are entirely his, President Trump’s, prerogative.

“There were other memos like the Liu memo that made it to Trump’s desk, according to Axios, including one that named several State Department officers.”

Again…, who was the person who witnessed this and passed the information on to Axios?

ONE OF THE DISLOYAL DEEP STATE WEASELS THE WHITE HOUSE IS TALKING ABOUT!!!

If I was President Trump, I’d leave some particularly juicy [but specifically] fake memos laying around, monitored by a video camera, just to see what got leaked and by whom.

Hey…, that’s how I roll.

“The Trump administration has taken action against other figures that might be perceived as disloyal to Trump, such as recalling U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from his post earlier this month and removing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council. Both actions, against officials who testified to the House of Representatives in its impeachment inquiry into Trump, came in the immediate wake of the Senate’s acquittal of Trump on both impeachment articles passed by the House.”

HIP, HIP, HOORAY!

HIP, HIP, HOORAY!

Get ‘em outta there!

The move regarding Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman particularly warmed my heart.

WINNING…, WHILE DRAINING THE SWAMP!

“The Swamp” or not “The Swamp,” that is the question.

I find it funny that we have “swamp rats” out there, running around, trying to portray President Trump as part of “the swamp.”

They are absolutely shameless.

aobs 11

Please, think about it.

Here we have lifelong Washington bureaucrats, lifelong establishment politicians and their mindless propagandists trying to insinuate that President Trump represents “the swamp.”

Seriously?!

President Trump, who was not even a politician until 2016?!

President trump, who won the 2016 election with virtually no support from anyone in Washington, virtually no support from anyone in politics, or virtually any support from anyone in the media?!

Does that sound like someone who is a “swamp rat?”

Does that sound like someone who “the swamp” supports?

The answer is NO and NO.

What we have here is just another example of the old Nazi propaganda strategy of accusing your opponents of that which you are doing, or identifying them as you should be identified.

aobs 10

What is our latest example of “the swamp” rearing its ugly head?

According to Joshua Nelson for Fox News, “White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said on Tuesday that calls for the resignation of Attorney General [AG] William Barr from former Justice Department employees are not ‘surprising’ given the constant opposition to President Trump’s agenda.”

‘“It’s been proven time and time again. There are obstructionists all across this government who are working against the president,’ Grisham told, ‘Fox & Friends.’”

There’s no question about that, Stephanie.

aobs 2

We’ve seen mystery “whistleblowers,” hostile witnesses, hostile unnamed sources, and unsupportive bureaucrats galore permeating the departments and staffs within the executive branch.

aobs 4

“Grisham’s comments came after more than 1,100 former Justice Department employees signed an online petition urging Barr to resign and praising the four prosecutors who withdrew from the case of former Trump adviser Roger Stone after what they perceived as interference from the White House, Politico reported.”

And how do you communicate or get communication from “over 1,100 former Justice Department employees” in a matter of days?

Why, you just access your friendly “swamp” database…, shoot out a couple emails…, and shazam…, you’ve got an on-line petition urging AG Barr to resign for no defensible reason at all.

‘“It didn’t surprise me. A lot of those [petitioners] are career [employees]. There are many people who hailed AG Barr when we first appointed him and he’s been doing a great job,’ Grisham said.”

“Signatures for the petition include recent Justice Department employees and some dating back to the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations, according to the news outlet. The signatures were gathered by Protect Democracy, a nonprofit legal group that had also gathered signatures for a letter claiming Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report presented enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction of justice.”

aobs 5

Protect Democracy Group, huh.

The Protect Democracy Group obviously has access to that “swampy” database.

From “Protect Democracy’s own website: “Our democracy is facing threats we haven’t seen in generations. Protect Democracy is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting attacks, from at home and abroad, on our right to free, fair, and fully informed self-government. Together, armed with our Constitution and the rule of law, we can fight back and protect our democracy from those who would do it harm.”

If you dig a little deeper you’ll find that “Protect Democracy” is so far from “nonpartisan” that it isn’t funny.  Their statement is just a ruse to allow them to enjoy a tax-free status.

We really need to do away with this tax-free status for political groups…, but that is a different topic for another day.

In reality, “Protect Democracy” is just another anti-America, anti-Trump, pro-democrat, pro-socialism, group, used by the left to spread its poisonous propaganda.

‘“The president has made clear his position on many different cases but he leaves AG Barr to do his work. He’s made it clear that the two things are separate but the president will always, always tell the American people what his opinion is,’ Grisham said, adding she has heard nothing about Barr potentially stepping down.”

“Grisham said that it is just another example of the ‘constant barrage of corruption that goes against the president.’”

Yes, folks…, “the swamp” wants AG Barr to resign because of his egregious capitulations with The President, which really don’t amount to anything at all when compared to President Obama’s Attorneys General, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.

David Keene of The Washington Times wrote, “President Barack Obama’s attorney general who once described himself as his president’s “wing man” showed up on television over the weekend to brag that unlike [former] Attorney General Jeff Sessions, he had the pleasure of serving a president ‘I did not have to protect.’ The man is either suffering from early onset dementia or lying to rewrite history!”

aobs 6

“As those outside the confines of the Democrat Party might remember, Eric Holder has the distinction of being the only attorney general in history ever held in contempt of Congress. The charges stemmed from his stonewalling and lying to Congress as he scrambled to keep investigators away from any evidence that might link a major Obama administration scandal directly to the White House.”

“Maybe that’s what a president’s ‘wing man’ does and Mr. Obama certainly got protection from Mr. Holder whenever he needed it. Mr. Holder has actually always been prone to confusing loyalty to the law and to his boss for decades.”

aobs 9

I don’t recall over 1,100 former or current Justice Department employees signing any petitions against Holder, or the “Protect Democracy” Group crying about President Obama’s abuse of power.

They’re nonpartisan though…, of course.

aobs 8

These political hacks seem to be saying that an Attorney General, whose boss is The President, cannot communicate at all with that same president.

This has not been the case throughout history, but it is apparently the case regarding President Trump and his AG.

President John F. Kennedy’s AG was his own brother, Robert!  Do you think these two ever discussed anything?!

aobs 7

Do you think Robert Kennedy had his brother’s back?

Again…, please…, let’s take a step back from this democrat alternate reality world and deal with precedent, truth and reality.

WINNING!
