No, We Have Not Lost Our Trust in the FBI or America, Yet

 

Representative Adam Schiff suggested Sunday, talking to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, that the GOP-crafted memo released Friday could lead to an Oklahoma City-style bombing because people will have lost trust in the FBI. His incredulous claim was if one witnesses their neighbor buying excessive amounts of fertilizer, yet has no lawn, they would hesitate from calling this in to the FBI out of fear that the Congress would release their name for political reasons making you a target. Fear tactics, we have always loved it when any political argument falls to straight fear tactics, the last argument of the scoundrel. The Democrats are running around pretending that the Constitutional release of information to the people by the Congress and approved by the President has irreparably harmed the safety of the nation. We find this almost amusing after the Democrats slow leaking of information from the very same FBI and DOJ investigations throughout the campaign and usage of these agencies’ highest officials to massage and manipulate information to allow Hillary Clinton avoid prosecution for treasonous acts of playing fast and loose with secret, Top Secret and even higher classified letters, memos and investigative reports on her “personal mail server” which she used to avoid any ability for any investigation to look into her actions while she was Secretary of State and from which she lost or misplaced many thousands of e-mails, many of which were found on other personal computers and communications equipment such as Anthony Weiner’s notebook which he shared with his wife, Huma Abedin, long time Hillary confidant and close friend as well as appointed to a high position aiding Ms. Clinton as Secretary of State. Their complaining falls on deaf ears after the interference of Attorney General, Loretta E. Lynch, in the investigation on Hillary Clinton’s behalf after her meeting serendipitously with former President William Jefferson Clinton on his private jet on the tarmac of Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona, on June 26, 2016, while the FBI investigation concerning Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server was still underway.

 

The leaks and misinformation and secretive meetings surrounding the questionable lack of calling for an indictment of Hillary Clinton which astonished many observers even including some Democrats and was but half of the story. The leaks concerning the Russia probe into their interference presumably to throw the election to Donald Trump were intentionally damaging and completely illegal, not legal and above board as was this document release. The near constant dribs and drabs of presumably damning information proving coercion and influence of the election by the Russian government presumably at the behest of Donald Trump continued with new updates coming out weekly, then twice weekly and by election week the revelations were almost twice daily. Fortunately, most of the leaks were unlikely to cause any damage to the Trump campaign, as they were either inconsequential or concerned items which threw more doubt on Hillary than they did Donald Trump. What has been learned since the election through reckless leaking of information by largely Democrat and Hillary and Bill Clinton functionaries has raised doubts about Hillary Clinton and her time as Secretary of State, her and Bill’s parts in what appeared to be a donate to their charity in order to influence Hillary as Secretary of State and gain influence on President Obama. And as far as the collusion with the Russians, that now appears to have been part of the Hillary Clinton campaign as well as funded and arrange by the Democrat National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta. There is the Steele dossier arranged by the investigative agency ‎Fusion GPS who were hired to dig up dirt about Donald Trump and his dealings with the Russians and their undo influence over Donald Trump concerning questionable actions which the Russians could hold over him. The entire mess was all too contrived and manipulated to be believable and had little if any influence on the election except to hurt Hillary Clinton and to bankrupt the Democrat National Committee as well as Hillary’s campaign. In the end, all these nefarious efforts are coming home to roost and perhaps in the end Hillary Clinton will get what so many believe she deserves, an orange pantsuit, actually more of a jumpsuit, and some nice accommodations at a Club Fed facility for the politically connected.

 

Club Fed or Club Med?

As far as Americans losing faith in the FBI or in America herself, not even close. Americans, especially after the recent State of the Union Address given by President Trump, are more invigorated and have more faith in the possibilities for their futures than any time in the past decade; well, unless they are a Democrat in the Congress who were obviously very dour and dejected. But there are some things being circulated in some circles which are anything but true. The first is that President Trump now has the Republican Party backing him. A Republican source has stated, “Mitt becoming Senator Mitt Romney and chairman of the NRSC elevates Trump’s biggest intra-party foe. This is not the outcome Trump wanted when he encouraged Hatch to run again.” He also noted that it would elevate Romney’s stature as an anti-Trump colleague within the party. Why would a Party presumably now in line with the President be elevating a credible alternate candidate into a position from which he could challenge Donald Trump in the next election primaries? The answer is obvious, the elite in the Republican Party still desire replacing Donald Trump as soon as the opportunity presents itself. The question then becomes, what if these elites succeed and manage to place Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio or any of their other favorite sons onto the ticket in the 2020 elections?

 

The result of such a coup in the Republican Party will be a complete turn around from the election of President Trump. One item which has not been discussed very much is why was the media so assured that Hillary Clinton would win and why was the Clinton campaign nonchalant about even bothering to campaign in places such as Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and the remainder of the so-called battleground states and instead spent all her time basking away before cooing crowds in New York and California where she was guaranteed large adoring crowds and easy victories. The campaigning answer is she was attempting to appear confident and as a winner with the adoring crowds arranged for her and as far as also the media, the fix was in, sufficient votes had been fixed where necessary and Hillary Clinton had the necessary votes to defeat Donald Trump assuming he got the votes they believed he deserved. Do not believe that Donald Trump lost the popular vote, at least not the actual popular vote, as he had to win and win so big that all their vote stealing and other cheats were not sufficient to prevent his victory. As far as malfeasance and mishandling of vote tallies, all one need do is research the accusations and actual findings which are always minimized by the guilty party and as very seldom does an election turn out so close that there results challenges and hand counts which often have varying results on each recount. The Bush-Gore Florida fiasco was a perfect example of the mess that comes when the actual votes are to be tallied and even then, there are games played such as divining who someone actually desired voting for when there was no vote in the Presidential boxes and other shenanigans. It is an unfortunate thing when a nation gets to the point where the omnipresent main parties have so rigged the election games that they remain relatively unchallenged and can even alter the results of elections.

 

So, what will happen should the Republican Party use the primaries and the alignment of the Super Delegates and other contrivances in order to remove Donald Trump and replace him with a mainstream Republican in good standing with the progressive elites who believe it is their fishbowl and they can control who is permitted to play in it? The people who elected Donald Trump will become disenchanted and very likely remain home and some may even decide that the Democrat Party candidate is less offensive than the candidate the Republican elite selected. Such an eventuality will prove to be an extreme disaster for the United States as should the Democrat Party ever get sufficient power in both the Congress and holding the White House and have sufficient State governments to pass an amendment to the Constitution despite any opposition, then we can expect some dire changes to occur. They might do away with the Electoral College and replace it with a straight popular vote for the electing of a President. People claim that such changes to the Constitution are impossible yet back in 1913 the Progressives won sufficient power throughout the nation that they changed how Senators were chosen making it a popular vote instead of allowing the State legislatures or Governors or some combination where each State chose how to select their Senator with the Amendment XVII. This made the Senate a smaller version of the House of Representatives and permitted the Federal Government to literally walk all over the States Rights, which had been protected through their selection of Senators to represent each state. The Constitution initially made the two houses of Congress for two entirely separate duties. The House of Representatives was to be the people’s house and the Senate was to be the States representatives. The Seventeenth Amendment ended that and turned the Senate into simply another popular people’s representative leaving the states powerless to prevent the Federal Government from usurping their power. It was the year 1913 with the two presumably ratified Amendments, numbers XVI and XVII, the income tax power for the Federal Government, as before 1913 there was no direct Federal Tax on the people, and the direct electing of Senators. Now the Federal Government had complete power over the individual states, began usurping all power to Washington D.C., and used the income tax in order to bring all finances to Washington D.C. This was the point where the Deep State began to take shape and it would take the repeal of the two Amendments, Sixteen and Seventeen, to bring sanity back to the government and permit the states some semblance of their power back with which they would hopefully whittle the size of the Federal Government back down to where it was almost harmless.

 

Another result if the Republicans deserted their base by replacing Donald Trump on the ticket by whatever means, no matter how proper and natural such was performed, this would lead to a Democrat taking the White House. With the now seeming complete power which has been consolidated in the Presidency, initially by every President since Washington but rapidly accelerated by President George W. Bush after 9-11 and then by President Obama to get all of Obamacare into law and amended as he saw necessary; the Royal Presidency has been furthered by Donald Trump in order to undo much of the illegal items done by fiat by President Obama. President Trump has simply validated much of the powers usurped by the former Presidents and possibly even added to them himself. The Presidency has been granted power to accomplish desired goals almost through pure will of the individual holding the office. Such power is defined as accomplishing the desired goals by fiat all but challenging the Congress to stop the President. The problem there is the Congress had grown lazy and no longer even wields the powers which remain within their purview. No longer does the Congress write the laws, they simply define that which they desire, the President signs off on such legislation, and then the departments are assigned their sections of the legislation to write the particulars, which are the regulations. These regulations have replaced what used to be laws. Congress used to define the goals and the means for accomplishing such goals and every specific step required. Now it is the Deep State that spells out the specifics after Congress has given them a general gist of their ideas. No longer are the people’s representatives responsible for the enacted implementation of the laws and thus they do not even know what their legislation has wrought. They will campaign using glorious sounding words telling about the legislation and what it is designed to accomplish when they have no idea what it actually will accomplish because they did not write how the legislations was to be implemented. This is the Deep State which President Trump desires unraveling such that the government can be returned to the people. President Trump does not agree with the lazy Congress and desired making the legislators actually write the codes of each piece of legislation and not passing off to unelected bureaucrats to enact the often-onerous regulations which supposedly derive from the Congressional direction in each piece of legislation. The Republican Party along with their allies in the Democrat Party do not desire that Congress actually work at their jobs as they see their jobs as being the social calendar and the reelection efforts. It is uncertain which they place first. The members of Congress, for the most part, simply desire to pass high-sounding legislation and not get their hands dirty working out the minutia. They leave that tedium to the Deep State of bureaucrats who often decide how much control they can grab and claim it fits the spirit of the legislation. This is the evil of the Deep State. This is something the progressives have wrought and the sad truth is that both parties are run by progressives. They love big government because that permits them to have control of the people and for the most part the people are too busy simply trying to survive the mess made by the Deep State to actually realize they are being had. The reason that even the Republicans desire the end to President Donald Trump is simple, he is not one of them and he is actually working for the people, the unwashed masses with whom the powerful in Washington D.C. prefer not to have to deal with. That is the sad truth and once President Trump leaves office, that may be the beginning of the end of the United States of America and, if we be permitted to slightly alter a great quote from Abraham Lincoln, this will be the end of the “Government of the people, by the people, for the people,” shall now perish from the Earth. We changed one letter of one word, we changed a ‘t’ to a ‘w’ making ‘not; into ‘now’ and that makes all the difference.
