IN MY OPINION

Time to assess ‘deep state’

Stop for a moment and realize just how prescient he was when Donald Trump announced, during his 2016 presidential campaign, that his intent was to drain the Washington, D.C. swamp. Governments throughout this great country have become so powerful that they are out of control, no longer being accountable to the voters for their actions. Unelected department and commission heads routinely take administrative action that literally carries the force of law. Their constituency is no longer the American voter, but rather the lobbying special interest groups or their own political leanings.
We now find ourselves amid an odd set of circumstances where career government officials decided — on their own — that voters made a mistake in the 2016 presidential election. For the first time in the history of this country, a small group of Ivy League elites decided they knew better and have spent the last three years trying to oust a sitting president who has committed no impeachable offense. To be more explicit, their plans began formulation on election night in 2016. They didn’t have enough dignity to even wait until he had been sworn in.
As more and more is revealed involving the Democrats three-year-long obsession with impeaching this president, it is becoming abundantly clear that the beginnings are deeply imbedded in the government’s intelligence agencies. Others aiding and abetting include an alphabet soup of administrative level FBI and Justice Department officials. Right about here is where one’s thoughts turn to Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Peter Strock, Susan Page, John Brennan and James Clapper who were among the original perpetrators of this hoax. Their insurance plan, I believe they called it.
Numerous other Senate and House investigations have fallen by the wayside, completely lacking in either a crime or in any evidence that would even support the claim of wrongdoing. When FBI Director Jim Comey was unable to construct any scenario that would indicate guilt, he leaked information to the New York Times through a close personal friend. The leaking of that information alone, was a crime in and of itself. No one seemed to care because it resulted in Rod Rosenthal of the FBI being able to appoint a special counsel who just happened to be best friends with Comey. Mueller dogged the president and his family for the next two years and found nothing. Democrats were stunned, but weren’t about to concede.
Democrats in the House, who have done nothing except hound Trump for the duration of their power, continued the pursuits with various committees pouring over every scrap of the Trump family’s presence on earth. Finally, Adam Schiff — who is in charge of all things, the House Intelligence Committee — appears to have a made a deal with the devil in recruiting a “whistleblower” who it turns out is not a whistleblower but rather a stenographer for Alexander Vindaman, a member of the government’s intelligence community — one of Trump’s most dedicated enemies.
The alleged whistleblower is in every sense, a “pajama boy” who had worked for Barack Obama, Joe Biden and John Brennan — in other words, a died-in-the-wool Trump hater. Trouble is that the young man had heard none of the telephone conversation in question and was solicited to relay someone else’s (that would be Vindaman) interpretation. Troubles with the plan arose when Trump released the original transcript and clouded the attempt by Democrats’ attempt to play fast and loose with the truth—a Schiff specialty.
Although no one can describe any crime or misdemeanor for action, it appears clear that Democrats are hell-bent on action. On the flip side, there appears to be real criminal investigations coming to fruition which are targeting some of the worst of Trump haters. This country is almost four years overdue for a real assessment of the “deep state” and a housecleaning!
But, as always, that’s only one man’s opinion.
