I believe that there are a few people in the bureaucracy in Washington, DC that truly want to do the right thing and have a smidgen of integrity. How many? I have no idea, and probably not as many as I hope, but I see signs there are some. What has sparked this revival of Hope in my heart? There are several things and one of them is the apparent willingness and intent of the Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the counterintelligence operations against the Trump campaign and Trump himself.
Immediately, there are and will be cries from the Never Trump crowd, the Democrats, the RINOs, and those who are so incensed, angry, and exasperated that he is the President that this is Barr being Trump’s lapdog. I don’t believe that, based on numerous things and one is his track record prior to being nominated. He has demonstrated that he is his own man and not owned by anyone including the man that tabbed him for the position.
Before you scream that unless the full unredacted Mueller report is released he is not to be trusted, can I ask you if he should follow the law? You want him to be the top dog in the Law Enforcement world in America, but you also want him to act as James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, and a myriad of others and ignore the law? Seriously?
The mountain of evidence the FBI had to have discovered very early in their queries into the boastful claims of Carter Page in Russia that he had Trump’s ear cannot be overlooked. I can see why the intelligence community would be concerned and couple with that Paul Manafort’s business dealings with Russian corporations and they were justified in initiating an investigation.
However, once they discovered that this was a nothing burger, they should have ceased and reported that to the American public. Why didn’t they? If it wasn’t political, I have no answer. If it wasn’t to do a measure of CYA thinking that Hillary was a lock to become president, I don’t have an answer. The revelations that have surfaced indicate that both those possibilities were involved as well as their incredibly left-leaning political views.
Attorney General Barr has indicated that the Department of Justice would also investigate the process used by the FBI to secure a FISA surveillance warrant against Trump and Carter Page. I say, “It’s about time!” Hey, I have said before and say again, I don’t care who is exposed in corruption so long as it is an honest pursuit of the truth and both sides of the political equation are investigated with the same resoluteness. That clearly has not been the case and that should be investigated and the guilty exposed to the world and held accountable legally, ethically, morally, and politically.
The FBI clearly knew very early that the Steele dossier was a product of a person incredibly biased against Trump and was bought and paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign. I am concerned about Russian interference in our elections, our military intelligence, our economy, and anything other aspect or sector of our society. I am concerned about China, North Korea, Iran, and a myriad of other players on the international scene. All pose a national security threat and we need to uncover who the players are and take steps to prevent any interference and guard against cyber-attacks.
However, I would be surprised if the United States is not doing much the same with those nations. We know that Barack Obama, as President, used our intelligence and our tax-payer dollars to try to subvert elections, the most prolific was Israel’s.
Carter Page and Paul Manafort are not going to jail for collusion with the Russians. That alone should scream volumes to everyone and make us tap the brakes and question what this was all about. The information we have, at this time, is that the Mueller investigation that spanned two long years produced not one single indictment of collusion with Russian or obstruction of justice by anyone connected to Trump or Trump himself. It did indicate that “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign” there was no collusion. Those suitors from Russia were rejected time and again.
The Inspector General’s report indicated that the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton email scandal was laced with political bias and that is why she was absolved of wrongdoing. I have no doubt that the Attorney General’s investigation will reveal there was significant Trump bias in the counterintelligence investigations conducted against Trump and his campaign.
I can say, without fear that I will have to eat my words, “it was an attempted political coup.” I hesitate to use the word hate but it is rooted in hate and the insatiable quest for power by the elitist politicians. When groups like the Elitist Political Class view the rest of us as subservient and lesser in position, intelligence, and incapable of governing ourselves without their wisdom (sic), we plunged into a dangerous state.
America is the target of many nations and groups around the world and that should come as no surprise. Joseph Stalin once said, “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.” That should send chills down the spine of every Freedom Loving America, but does it?
When I hear the former president trashing this nation, current politicians decrying this nation and calling it immoral and listen to the superfluous diatribe of the current slate of those seeking to ascend the political mountain to the highest office in the land, I cringe and weep.
I still have hope and that hope is rooted in three things: God, American historical resolve, and our Constitution. I wanted to say the American people but unless we awaken from slumber and realize the offerings being presented by this slate of Democratic Socialist and the Media is nothing more than a faux elixir purported to cure all ills and is not just incapable of doing that but is damaging to our system of government and life, we perish.
I feel somewhat Queen Esther in the Book of Esther in the Bible must have felt when confronted with the schemes of Haman to destroy the Jews. She said, “If I perish, I perish” as she determined to go before the King on behalf of her people. I feel that way about our American Liberty, Freedom, Republic, and Constitution. I will fight to my last breath for this Republic and in the process, I realize that I will be attacked and there could be entities who seek to end my life or destroy me socially, politically, economically, and in any way they can. Therefore, I am committed to interceding for America and utilizing every means and tool I have to fight for Faith, Family, and Freedom!
God bless you and God bless America!
