It’s been a good weekend, and today’s post marks another milestone in this blog’s brief history: fifteen weeks of consecutive daily posts. After a change of pace last Sunday, I’m back to Lazy Sunday. This week’s edition looks back at posts about the administrative Deep State that exists in the federal government. Indeed, it’s an unholy alliance of D.C. insiders, corporate elites, academic Leftists, and social justice warriors, all arrayed against President Trump and his agenda.
The Deep State is, as I’ve written, very real. We can no longer trust judges to dispassionately rule on or uphold the Constitution; bureaucrats to execute faithfully the president’s orders; or government officials to act in the best interest of the American people. Further, we cannot trust our elites to even abide by the outcome of a fair, free election. The long, expensive Mueller probe represented a vague, politically-motivated witch hunt, all designed to de-legitimize President Trump. That our unelected intelligence agencies played an active role in such treasonous activity further highlights the dire situation in which the Republic finds itself.
Indeed, we’ve entered into a period of praetorian rule in the United States. No longer is the Constitution respected. If the people make the “wrong” choice for president, then the full apparatus of the Swamp will swing into action to “correct” the wrongthink of the plebes. Most Americans do not appreciate how far we’ve passed through the looking glass. I would urge President Trump to restructure radically our intelligence agencies, making them accountable to elected officials and, therefore, the American people.
These posts detail the perfidy and duplicity of the Deep State. They only scratch the surface.
1.) “Fictitious Frogs and Bureaucratic Despotism” – this piece examines, in brief, the excesses and abuses of federal agencies that have been delegated lawmaking powers. Weak-willed Congress’s have readily given up their precious legislative powers, and out-of-control justices have approved this unconstitutional, cowardly activity. The results have been both absurd and catastrophic, particularly with everyone’s favorite government-agency-to-hate, the Environmental Protection Agency.
2.) “The Deep State is Real – Silent Coup Attempt and Andrew McCabe” – disgraced Deputy Attorney General was going around bragging about his attempt to lead a 25th Amendment removal of President Trump from office, premised on the ridiculous notion—unfortunately axiomatic among Leftists—that the president is insane. Despite no evidence to suggest as much, McCabe, like other Deep States progressives, merely wanted to remove the president from office. Of course, to progressives, anyone who disagrees with them is either mentally ill or evil.
3.) “The Deep State is Real, Part II: US Ambassadors and DOJ Conspired Against Trump” – this post kicked off a few days of Deep State reflections. It’s a “must-read,” as I explain how the notorious Steele dossier, a fake document used to obtain a FISA warrant to wiretap the Trump campaign phones, was commissioned by the Clinton campaign. With all the claims of “Russian collusion” levied at President Trump, it’s an absurd example of projection: Clinton was the one “colluding” with a foreign agent (Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier, is a former British spy) to influence the outcome of an American election—and using the backchannels of state power to eavesdrop on an innocent man’s presidential campaign. That’s far more sinister than anything the Nixon campaign did in 1972 (at least the Committee to Re-Elect the President kept the Watergate burglary domestic). Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should be in federal prison.
4.) “Mueller Probe Complete, Trump Vindicated” – remarkably, even Robert Mueller couldn’t straight-up lie about President Trump. I’ll end this Lazy Sunday on a positive note: President Trump was cleared of any “collusion” with Russia (keep in mind, “collusion” isn’t even a legal term, and is vague to the point of meaninglessness, which is the point: anyone can read into the phrase “Russian collusion” whatever dark fantasies they want). Now that the probe is done, President Trump should act with all haste to DRAIN THE SWAMP!
Happy Sunday. Rest up—we’ve got to take back America!
