FISA release is just the tip of the iceberg. To quote from yesterday’s post: “The disaster of the past fourteen years, the real plot, was revealed October 2008: “Now, Mizzou, I just have two words for you tonight: five days. Five days. After decades of broken politics in Washington, and eight years of failed policies from George W. Bush, and 21 months of a campaign that’s taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
Yes indeed – That dreaded ‘Fundamental Transformation’ Obama spoke about without really revealing just ‘what’ he was going to transform the country into. But now in hindsight with the FISA developments and the stark knowledge we have of the past ten years, we know exactly that it was a transformation into a Dictatorship, wherein the diktat makes Laws, not the legislature.
By treating the DOJ as though it was ‘an independent fourth branch of government’, the Obama regime transformed the nation from a Constitutional Republic with Self Rule, to Rule by Diktat, involving numerous Commissariats run by unelected bureaucrats. Ignoring the laws set forth by We the People’s representatives in our Constitution, while making ‘spur of the moment’ laws by Executive Order as they saw fit. Cloaked and wrapped in a neat euphemism labeled ‘Social Justice’.
That sounds nice, doesn’t it – ’Social Justice’. As though they were righting some terrible ‘injustice’ against society. But like everything to do with socialism, it is an out and out Lie.
‘Sundance’ in Conservative Treehouse has another compelling piece focused around such matters, and especially with the expected FISA release later today: “Tip of the Iceberg: FISA Intelligence Memo the Beginning, Not the End” …
There continue to be questions about the substance behind the pending release of the House Intelligence Committee memo. With that release in mind, today it is worthwhile remembering this is the beginning of exposing the corruption within the DOJ not the end.
For several years the U.S. justice department has maintained an attitude of non-accountability within its ranks. The Obama years elevated that attitude and provided multiple examples of a DOJ gone rogue.
A complicit media enables that attitude by engineering a false narrative the U.S. Justice Department was/is an independent fourth branch of government; unaccountable to congress and entirely separate from the executive branch.
The House Intelligence Memo is simply using the example of currently known FISA abuse to open the door and show the U.S. electorate how corrupt this unaccountable institution has become. Behind that door are very uncomfortable realities for all of those who constructed the weaponized agency; and also those who have benefited from it.
♦When IRS head Lois Learner unlawfully sent the 21 CD-ROM’s containing the “Schedule B” filings of over a million Americans to the Obama administration, the recipient was the DOJ. (LINK) It was the DOJ who was chosen to utilize the political lists in their “Secret Research Project“.
♦When U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen demanded DOJ lawyers attend ethics classes due to their false representations to his court – he was highlighting a corrupt DOJ. (LINK)
♦When the case against the Bundy family was recently thrown out of court, it was the “gross malicious conduct” of the DOJ highlighted by the judge. (LINK)
This is the same DOJ who denied their own Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, the right to conduct oversight on DOJ internal action. (LINK – pdf) The expressed Justice Department intent in every action has been an attempt to remain unaccountable.

We the People have a 4th Amendment in our Bill of Rights that guarantees our Privacy. To which our Government is meant to be transparent and under constant oversight. But this has got turned around to where Government employees now believe they have the right to total privacy free from accountability, while We the People are kept under constant surveillance and oversight..
Consider once again, what would have happened had Hillary Rob’em Clinton won; none of what is emerging with the FISA memo would have ever become public knowledge. Following the typical election paradigm, it is a near certainty that a swamp-dweller will be elected president. In a hypothetical matchup, if McCain or Romney had won, no disclosure; had Jeb Bush won, no public disclosure.
Not that those 50,000 emails wasn’t dumb, just that odds were that the corruption that’s been facilitated for the last 50 years would simply be allowed to continue.
We the People have to take back our responsibility as citizens and make it clear that the Government is supposed to work for us, not we for them. We hire them and pay them to do their job, even under the constraints of the need for constant supervision and to be held accountable for their actions. The good ones should be rewarded while the bad ones ought to be punished. You get what you inspect – not what you expect.
Andrew McCarthy nailed it the other day in National Review: “The memo reportedly addresses an issue that is at least as significant as election meddling by Russia and suspected but unproven Trump-campaign collusion in it, namely: election meddling by the intelligence and law-enforcement arms of government and Clinton-campaign collusion in it. The latter issue involves conduct that predates Mueller’s investigation by more than two years — Hillary Clinton’s criminal conduct having been exposed in March 2015.”[end]
