No doubt at all that We the People currently have a political deep state in dire need of a cleanup. I’m trusting that everyone can detect the double standard presently at work in the good old US of A.
Democrats and most of the press corps are hellbent on (the attempt at least) to impeach Mr. Everyman Trump for inviting foreign help to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s role in Ukraine. At the same time the cretins inhabiting the deep state lamestream media want everyone to forget that the Clinton campaign in 2016 paid for foreign dirt that the FBI used to justify a secret surveillance warrant against the Trump campaign.
Somehow or other the CIA were involved also, plus the NSA and God only knows how many others. Names like Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Mueller, Schiff, Pelosi, Schumer (6 ways to Sunday), Nadler … the list is endless yet full of anti-Americans. All the way to the top.
Forgive me if I missed it but did I completely overlook republican investigations into #44 sending cash to Iran – used notes, on pallets, in an unmarked small jet? Samantha Powers, Susan Rice, John Kerry, FISA and … more? Thought so.
Yet Eric Holder thought it was a good time to pop his head up, and lecture Bill Barr on the appearance of impropriety. Rich!
Here’s the actual problem. This is not about Trump and whether one likes him or supports him or not. It’s all about the power of the permanent bureaucracy and how it rules the nation through illegitimate legislative authority that Congress has given it over the years. We’ve created a new Prometheus, eking out our substance through rules and regulations to which We the People citizenry have no means to consent or dissent.
For the past umpteen decades (certainly since before the LBJ debacle) We the People have been ruled by fiat, which is exactly why president Donald J. Trump is the current man in the arena. Fiat destroyer!
Either we’re still a representative constitutional republic, or we’ve morphed into being ruled by a mandarin class who can make and break elected officials as they see fit. As to Congress, their minds are made up rather like Britain’s House of Parliament that made itself a court to try and execute Charles I.
DemoMarxocrats want the desired outcome regardless of legal precedent or statutes. THAT’s the problem.

First, it is likely that President Donald Trump violated some cockamamie administrative rule when he recently spoke with the new Ukrainian president about the potential corrupt dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in Ukraine. Fine. Can’t Trump just pay a fine or something? Yes, he should’ve been more careful (and he needs to tell Rudy Giuliani to calm down, as the former mayor risks perjuring himself before not one, but three Congressional committees). What Trump did was the equivalent of going 15 mph over the speed limit in rural Georgia: it happens. Rarely does anyone notice. Ignorance is still not a viable legal defense. But, usually, the state is lenient, given that the violation is minor.
More importantly, though, can we not acknowledge, that — charges of “whataboutism” notwithstanding — what Trump did was nowhere near as bad as what his predecessor, the sainted Barack Obama, blatantly did to Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign?
What few appear capable of acknowledging is that former President Obama and his loyalists engaged in a government-wide conspiracy to besmirch, delegitimize, and ultimately destroy Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and, later, his presidency. Due to the outright fabrications of Obama’s intelligence officials regarding purported collusion between President Trump and Russian intelligence during the 2016 campaign, a variety of Trump campaign workers effectively had their lives ruined, and the president’s agenda was stunted — depriving the voters of the policies they voted in favor of.
Completion through link at bottom…
We the People wonder if anything at all will come out of the conspiracy of #44 (“he wants to know everything that’s happening”), Biden, Comey, Lynch, Brennan, Clapper, Powers, Strzok, Page, Rice and all the others, ad infinitum…
Clinton destroyed 33,000 emails that were under congressional subpoena. Nothing happened. She passed on classified material from an unsecured server. Nothing happened. She paid for the fake dirt on her opponent, which came from a foreign country. Nothing happened.
Our Republic is in danger, and not from global warming.
As Weichert closes out his deep state probe: Don’t you dare get offended by the fact that President Trump may have spoken too openly about the Biden family’s corruption in Ukraine if you’re not seething about the numerous, grotesque violations that the Obama administration undertook to ensure their preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton, succeeded the milksop Barack Obama as president. The Democrats, not the Republicans, are the ones who should truly be investigated — and face hard jail time for their illegal acts.
Civil war is not coming. But, thankfully, a deep cleansing of our “Deep State” is underway. If it doesn’t happen, Trump will be wrongly removed from office, and our republic will be dead.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Warrior-president Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
