BLOG POST 1 - Weaponized

Personally, I believe that everyone liberal or conservative, Republican or Democrat should be appalled at the practice of using an arm of government as a political hit job.  The old saying, “what goes around comes around” should be taken seriously in this situation.  I remember being told all my life, “be careful who you step on, on the way up because you might meet them on the way down.”  I had a man in a church that I pastored who would say, “I don’t get mad, I get even.”  No matter how much I tried to help him see the fallacy of that attitude, he stuck with it.  So, do politicians and political activist.

The weaponizing of the Internal Revenue Service by the Obama administration sent cold chills down my spine and made my temperature rise several degrees.  The use of the NSA, CIA, FBI, Homeland, etc. to spy on citizens for political purposes infuriates me.  Justice is supposed to be blind, but we all know that it isn’t far too frequently.  The fact that something has been done by one party or the other in the past is Never a justification for doing it in the future.  Retaliation is an endless exercise that knows no end.  The thirst for pay-back and vengeance is never satisfied and sadly, those most hurt by this, in government, is We the People.

The Special Counsel or Investigator, Robert Mueller’s search has expanded far beyond the original scope of his charge.  It has morphed into searching for anything, and I mean anything, in Donald Trump’s life, not just the so-called Russian Collusion Investigation.  It has branched out to virtually anyone and everyone connected to the President, no matter how loosely connected.  There has been intimidation and the ignoring of crimes and lies by Hillary Clinton and those connected to her but indictments against those connected to Trump.  The only reason for those indictments appears to be to get someone to roll over on him and reveal some nefarious deed.  His destruction appears to have been the objective.

Please understand, I am all for anyone who has committed a crime being held accountable.  My complaint is not the investigation of someone in Washington, DC or anywhere else but the double-standard being demonstrated.  When Democrats walk, and Republicans are held to the highest legal standard that is problematic and gives the appearance of ‘weaponization’ of that governmental entity or agency.  That is disconcerting and poses a serious threat to our Rule of Law and the legitimacy of our federal government.

If there were indictments for all ‘false statements’ in Washington, DC there would be few people in that city not under indictment.  That would include the former President Barack Hussein Obama, former NSA Director James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton and a myriad of others both Democrat and Republican.  One of Barack Obama’s false statements was that our healthcare premiums would go down.  That is more than a misunderstanding of what he believed would happen because the statistical information available to him, at the time, indicated an increase in premiums.  He also told us that under Obamacare we could keep our plan and doctors and those writing the bill knew that was a fabrication or simply political rhetoric.  James Clapper testified before Congress that the NSA was not spying on Americans.  It was a lie and he perjured himself.  Is he or Obama under indictment?

There is an indication that Jerome Corsi, a 72-year-old author, and Harvard trained political scientist, an associate of Roger Stone will be indicted.  For what, you ask?  Perjury! Mr. Corsi, argues that he was manipulated into making false statements to Muller’s lawyers.  That is not a justification, but the double standard is securely intact.  General Flynn, George Papadopoulos, and Mr. Corsi have all learned the hard way that you cannot get away with mocking people in power, especially Democrats, or you will pay dearly.  The weaponized investigation is out to get anyone and everyone who took any stand against the DC Swamp.  All three of those men are bankrupt.  Destroyed by Robert Mueller and the Democrats.  Payback for resisting their presumed rightful place of power.

I saw that one of the mega brains (sarcasm intended) at MSNBC, U.S. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg explained the new legal standard for guilt in the Democrats America.  He said, “When Mueller indicted those Russian military intelligence officers, there was a very big hint in the indictment that there was an American deeply involved.  It talked about an American playing a role in that Russian interference scheme.”  Nicolle Wallace laughed and responded, “I remember the keystroke of intelligence and remember thinking anyone emailing with the Russians – you’re going to be in trouble!”  Anyone, that is, except the Clinton Team or Obama Team.

Remember how Carter Page’s life was destroyed by the Left.  He graduated at the top of his Naval Academy class and served this nation for five years as an intelligence officer.  His mistake or error he backed the wrong presidential candidate.  Before you argue, let me remind you that Page was accused of being a Russian spy.  No evidence was ever produced, and he was never charged with anything, but the damage had been done.  The nefarious operatives in our Intelligence Community and the Main Stream Media chanted his guilt.  He was, as was Justice Kavanaugh, and President Trump GUILTY.  No evidence, no trial, no presumption of innocence.  GUILTY until He could prove himself Innocent and even then, he would not be believed.

America, if we allow this kind of ‘weaponizing’ of arms of government and agencies of government to be a reality we will allow the destruction and witness the ‘fundamental transformation’ of our Republic.  Transformed into what?  Not a Republic that follows the Rule of Law and the Constitution, but a nation that is ruled by a despotic oligarchy.  If you like your Freedom, Liberty, and Republic, you had better be ready to fight to keep it.  By fight, I mean pray, work, inform, educate, and vote, not take up arms.

God bless you and God bless America is my desire and prayer!
