Before you pigeonhole me as a kook and doomsday theorist let me complete the question. Can we survive without dealing with corruption in government? My first response is NO but then I must place an addendum and say, “Not as the Free Constitutional Republic our Framers and Founders established.” We have a choice or there is a matter before us, that could ultimately require the assertion of Thomas Jefferson in his letter to William Stephens Smith in 1787, “…the people cannot be all, & always, well informed. the part which is wrong … will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. if they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. we have had 13 states independent 11 years. there has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. What country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is its natural manure.” PLEASE BE ADVISED – I am not calling for armed rebellion but for the commitment and determination that gained us Independence and has kept us a Free Sovereign Constitutional Republic for over 240 years! WITHOUT THAT SPIRIT we will succumb to the corrupt politicians and drift into an oligarchy or despotic tyranny in a very short time.
Ronald Reagan understood this and declared rightly, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on to them to do the same.” Today, as has been revealed in the MEMO, we are in a Constitutional crisis. That’s what the Democrats contended would be the result if the MEMO was released. They are partly right, the MEMO did not create a Constitutional crisis it revealed that one exists. The MEMO did not reveal collusion with the Russians by Donald Trump but did reveal that there was collusion. That collusion was in the FBI, DOJ, the Obama administration, the DNC, and the Clinton campaign. The MEMO revealed that, at the highest levels of the FBI, the DOJ, the Obama administration, and the Clinton camp corruption had not set in but was producing fruit that will destroy our Freedom and Liberty if let continue. It revealed that the highest levels of the FBI, NSA, DOJ, HOMELAND, and the Democrat Party there was such corruption and criminality that our very system of government is in danger of such subversion that we could lose our Republic. There has been, in my view, TREASON and it was not Trump or his team that betrayed America.
If there was nothing to be learned from the MEMO then why did the Democrats, DOJ, and FBI fight so hard to keep it out of the public view? If there was no wrongdoing, then why have six senior leaders in the FBI or Justice Department been reassigned or fired based on the facts that have been revealed through the work of the MEMO committee and Inspector General of the Justice Department. If the plans for an INSURANCE POLICY was simply rhetoric with no substance, then why were 5 months of texts conveniently missing for the time period following that call by Peter Strozk? The Trump/Russia Dossier called “salacious and unverified” by former Director of the FBI, James Comey and paid for by the Clinton team and the DNC was the sole piece of “evidence” used to obtain FISA warrants to spy on Trump or his team. The judge was, apparently, not informed of who paid for this research or fabrication. The FBI determined it was unverifiable and that would make it unusable as Intel, yet they diabolically used it and MSM reporting on it as documentation to get the warrants and have a Special Investigator to find something on Trump. Christopher Steele reportedly wanted to do all he could to prevent Trump from becoming President and has even called himself a liaison for the Russian government. The allegations on Trump’s character was given by Russian operatives. HOLD IT A SECOND… Russian operatives provided the unverifiable information on Donald Trump? If that is true, and it has been documented that it is, then HOW WOULD THAT BE COLLUSION WITH TRUMP TO GET HIM ELECTED? That would indicate that they were working to keep him from being elected and get Hillary elected. COLLUSION? Absolutely but not by Trump, the GOP, or his team. COLLUSION? Yes, and it deserves investigation, but the target should immediately shift from Trump to Clinton and indictments for her, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, and many others should be forthcoming. I AM NOT HOLDING MY BREATH ON THAT ONE…
Let’s examine the vocal Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff (D-CA). He is acting as though he is the only defender of the Constitution and trying to protect America from endangerment. In March 2007, the illustrious Congressman Schiff announced that he was “deeply troubled” by what he called “abuses of authority” by the FBI in acquiring personal information of U.S. citizens. He has called for restrictions on the ability of the executive branch to get information on Americans’ phone calls. In the interest of “protecting privacy and increased transparency,” he called for ways to reform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court – the very court that the FBI used to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump. His hypocrisy is visible because now he considers the FBI pristine and Trump evil therefore whatever they did is okay. SERIOUSLY, Congressman? SERIOUSLY??? He and the Democrats cried wolf in their claims that the release of the MEMO would reveal “sources and methods” used by the FBI and endanger our national security and our agents in the field. IT DID NOT!
Let me reiterate, THERE WAS COLLUSION. We know from the MEMO that much of the “salacious and unverified” material in the infamous dossier came from the Russians. The lies about Trump’s personal behavior came from Russian operatives. There is NO QUESTION that it was the Clinton campaign, DNC, Christopher Steele, the FBI, and the DOJ who colluded with the Russians to rig the presidential election. HOW DID TRUMP WIN? I believe that millions of Americans WOKE UP and said, “Enough of the Crap” and voted for the platform that promised to Drain the Swamp, Dismantle the Deep State, Repeal Obamacare, Reform the Tax Code, deal with the ILLEGALS, Secure the Borders, and return the oversight of Government to the People. We have moved toward that and if we will STAY THE COURSE we can achieve much more in the next 3 to 7 years. We must stay engaged. We must not grow complacent. We must not relax. We must not fail to VOTE. Allowing the Democrats back in power would be tantamount to surrender of the Republic in its Constitutional form. PATRIOTS ARISE and REKINDLE the SPIRIT OF 1776 and let’s Reclaim and Restore the Republic.
God bless you and God bless America!
