I am 100% serious in my question. Have the tentacles of the Swamp Denizens and the infestation become so pervasive and extensive that it has become impossible to Drain the Swamp? I would love to say, NO. However, with each new revelation of the extent of the corruption of politics and politicians, the Intelligence Community, and the many bureaucracies of this nation, I am having serious doubts.
I wonder what Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, Hamilton, Washington and the patriots of the 18th Century would say about the ubiquitousness of the Swamp. No, I think I know, based on history and their writings. I believe they would be calling for the same thing they called for in 1776 Unless the voting public somehow becomes enlightened as to the seriousness of the problem and sends the lot of them packing. We are not going to send them packing but we need to.
I am not an advocate of overthrowing the government, I do not see a positive outcome of that endeavor. The extent of the fractures and factions in of our society would make it virtually impossible for us to rally around a singular purpose and pursue a government with the ideal advanced by our founders. We would never achieve limited government because some would want the upper hand in the conquest. We would never achieve true Freedom because Freedom to some is Slavery to others. Therefore, I ask the question, “Is the D.C. Swamp Undrainable?”
I know that my doubts can possibly cause despair in hearts causing some to give up and cease trying. I pray that is not the case, but that the reverse will be true. I pray that the doubts I am raising will cause each of us to reexamine the conditions now existing in our government and finally determine to reclaim our government. It is my desire that we become engaged and committed to the task of dispossessing the possessors of power in D.C. and restore the oversight of government to ‘we the people.’
Will that happen? Our most recent history, up to 2016 suggests no. The defeat of the Democrats in 2016 gives me a modicum of hope, but that is just a speck, not a meteor. However, it is a speck that I cling to and my love for America demands I stay in the fight.
We had, during James Comey’s tenure in the FBI in 2016, information regarding the illegalities of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Comey summarily dismissed those concerns insisting that “there was no intent to do harm.” I wonder how many people in prison would like to have heard those words and now feel violated?
We have continued uncovering more revelations via exposed and released emails that show the criminality and damage done to America was more expansive and extensive than previously thought. Yet, there is no real effort, that I see, to make her accountable. I see no genuine effort to hold the Obama administration accountable for the illegal spying during his waning years in office. That makes me doubt the draining of the Swamp because the Swamp Denizens are, for the most part, conducting the investigations.
Now we have what is being called a ‘third scope memo’ signed by then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in October 2017. That memo is damning and should receive immediate action to bring all the Coup participants and Swam Denizens involved to the bar and hold them accountable. Will that happen? Probably when we have green cheese from the moon on the shelves in our supermarkets. Possibly when pigs begin to fly, and unicorns are grazing in herds across America.
Rosenstein’s first memo, his letter to appoint Robert Mueller as the Special Counsel outlined the mission. Mueller was authorized to investigate the following: i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; [and] iii) any other matters within the scope of [obstruction of justice laws].
The second memo that was released was heavily redacted. That memo was issued during the Manafort trial in April 2018. The redacted version authorized Mueller to “investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and related matters.” The latter part of that was somewhat of a blank check. This second memo authorized Mueller to investigate “four sets of allegations” against Michael Flynn. It authorized Mueller to investigate whether Papadopoulous, a Trump aide was an agent for Israel. What?
Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) recently reported seeing an unredacted copy of this memo. He cannot legally disclose details but said, “I was finally able to see the scope memo…” He went on to assert that what he saw revealed the likelihood of the FISA Warrants being issued base largely on the Steele dossier. That is troubling to say the least and demands accountability.
The third scope memo is still held in secrecy. However, we know that Mueller included a brief description in his report and revealed that Rod Rosenstein ‘reauthorized’ him to investigate Michael Cohen, Richard Gates, and Roger Stone, as part of the full and thorough investigation of the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 election. Other names included were redacted, so we don’t know the full extent of this net they were casting trying to find something to hang their hats on and damage Trump and the Republicans.
All the memos and the extent of the investigations seem to indicate that Rosenstein who was supposedly overseeing the matter was submitting to whatever the Mueller Team wanted. That would mean that the Investigator and Investigation Team were not truly accountable to a higher authority but was the higher authority. Rosenstein’s reasons for appointing Mueller was likely an attempt to save face with the rabid Leftists who were furious over his involvement in the firing of James Comey.
Let me remind you that in May 2017 Rosenstein wrote the memo outlining the case for firing James Comey. That would make him a potential witness in the obstruction case against Trump, but nobody seemed to care. Rosenstein was on the prosecution team that fully exonerated Hillary Clinton in the Whitewater scandal. His wife represented Clinton in a 1998-99 civil case in federal court. Conflict of interest, but the Swamp didn’t care. He gave Mueller ‘free reign’ in the investigation against Trump. Why? They don’t do that in other cases. He signed off on the raid on the office of Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen. He was tainted, Mueller was tainted, Comey was tainted, and the Swamp was rejoicing.
God help us if we don’t wake up and realize that the D.C. Swamp has spread to all parts of our government and its influence is being felt in every state in the nation. We must reclaim our government and drain the swamp as much as possible. I do not believe we can do any of that if the Democrats win in 2020. You may disagree and that is your right, but I ask you to pray about the situation, examine all the facts, and use our heads for something other than a hat rack.
God bless you and God bless America!
