BLOG POST 2 - Corruption

I dream of a world where everyone uses the gray matter housed in the appendage on top of their shoulders for something other than a hat rack, but dreams are dreams.  I dream of an America where politicians are not vicious predators using every tool possible to destroy their opponents and advance a particular ideology or agenda, but then dreams are dreams.  I dream of an America where reason, personal responsibility, and accountability are the norm rather than entitlements and political correctness, but then dreams are dreams.  Like the song by the Everly Brothers, “All I Have To Do Is Dream”, I guess if I want that world the only viable solution is become a Rip Van Winkle and sleep it off, dreaming my life away.  However, that is not an option for me because I want more than fantasy.

If the Robert Mueller Investigation is not a ‘witch-hunt’ or ‘fishing expedition’ designed solely to find something to use against President Donald Trump then many questions need to be answered.  Why did the FBI plant a mole inside the Trump Campaign to spy on Donald Trump and his surrogates then funnel any and all information that might be useful to the Bureau?  He met with Trump advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos in the summer of 2016.  He had served in the Nixon, Ford, and Reagan administrations so what was it about Trump that prompted him to become a secret informant for the FBI?  He was part of a campaign embraced by the Democrats, Clintons, the DNC, the Obama Administration, and the Never Trump Republicans to ENTRAP Trump and quash his campaign and later his presidency.

I cannot say with 100% certainty that Stephen Halper, the secret informant was doing so to help Clinton but it was assuredly to hurt Trump and if he was not directly trying to help Hillary he was doing so indirectly.  For the FBI or the CIA to infiltrate a political campaign for the benefit of another campaign is both diabolical, unethical, if not illegal.  The Obama administration’s FBI began to pry into Trump long before the election was decided and from texts, memos, and emails it is clear they wanted to prevent him from winning and “just in case” they wanted a secondary plan to STOP TRUMP.  It was Halper who contacted Papadopoulos and offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London supposedly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean.  He then, suggested that he look into the Russian hacking of the Clinton e-mails prodding him to meet with anyone who might offer information.  That would then be used as an attempt to taint Donald Trump and inspire Russian collusion theories.  I find it most interesting that Halper was paid by the Department of Defense’s Office of Net Assessments $282,000 in 2016 and $129,000 in 2017.  WHY?  If you want a new word to describe political corruption it would be HALPER.

Then, the incredible collusion by the FBI with regard to the Clinton e-mail investigations and the “free passes” issued to her subordinates screams corruption and attempted political character assassination by the bureau and the DOJ.  The former FBI Director James Comey famously explained the reason no indictments were forthcoming on Hillary saying, “no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute the case.”  He said, basically, that Hillary was excused because she did not have criminal intent.  Seriously?  The Espionage Act does not require proof of mental state or intent only the act is to be considered.  He ignored the statute in order to protect Hillary, whom he fully believed would be the next president.  But, when it came to Donald Trump and Michael Flynn the Logan Act was raised and General Flynn was charged with lying to the FBI.  Hillary lied, as was documented by Comey.  Also, we know that Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills both testified to the FBI that they were UNAWARE of Hillary’s Private e-mail server.  Seriously?  They communicated with her via that mode of document transmission.  They lied, but no indictments were or are in the works.  John Podesta lied, as did most if not all the Clinton team, but no indictments.  However, with regard to anyone connected to President Trump, if they can find a charge to indict you with, they will.  Sounds like corruption, partisanship, and attempted political character assassination to me, but I’m just a lover of Freedom and want to keep America as the Free Constitutional Republic of our Founders and Framers.

I have hope that this blatant corruption and the never-ending drivel by Hillary, the finger pointing, and blame game while ignoring the failures is wearing thin with many Americans.  I am hopeful that the millennials are being turned off by the rhetoric, spin, and diatribe and want a lot less talk and a little more action.  I am hopeful that many Americans are seeing through the 90% negative coverage of the president and the flawed claims of the Democrats.  Like I said, it may be a dream but if you don’t dream it you will never pursue that prize.  I have seen reports that the generic ballot lead that the Democrats have reportedly held in the polls has virtually vanished.  Recently, the RCP “poll of polls” reported a high-water mark on the generic ballots for Republicans and the Democrats held their smallest advantage to date.  The Democrats were listed at 45% almost matching their lowest at the beginning of the Trump presidency.  People are seeing the positives of the Trump administration in terms of accomplishments, many of which are either not reported or under-reported, but becoming visible and realized by many average Americans.

Someone said, “Polls only tell you how people choose when they’re forced to choose.  They do not tell you who’ll get off their duffs or couches and wait in line to vote.”  The generic polls indicate the overall mood of the country and it is not a massive anti-Trump sentiment as the Democrats, MSM, Hollywood, and Never Trumpers would want you to believe.  Last year Donald Trump was at 37% approval and now he is at 43.6% or higher depending on which poll you read.  Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were both in the mid-40’s approval before their own mid-term elections and the Republican wave soaked both of them.  Will this be the reverse or will it be that the Republicans, at least hold their own in the elections?  I hope it is a Republican landslide but would be thrilled with the Republicans defeating enough Democrats to hold their own.

Corruption needs to be exposed and those guilty need to be held accountable.  America, it is time that we wake up and demand that our country and the bureaucracies and agencies of the federal government be returned to non-partisan and ethical moorings acting in an unbiased manner in all things.  It is time that we demand our country back from the oligarchical politicians and once again have a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”  Will you join me in November in preserving America?

God bless you and God bless America!
