Elder Patriot – The Left has been in full revolt since they first realized that there was a real possibility Donald Trump could become president. They have never really come to terms with the fact that our nation’s Constitution, the laws that arose from it, and our institutions are not theirs alone to violate, ignore, or cast aside when they present a roadblock to implementing their agenda.
After many months of waiting for Congressional Republicans to show some backbone and to start defending our president, their president, they have started making moves in that direction.
Perhaps it’s because the president’s approval rating has climbed to 51% in Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll that he’s now safe to defend. Or perhaps it’s because they truly believe enough is enough and that if they don’t defend our fundamental Constitutional protections and demand integrity and accountability from our Justice Department, we will be no better than East Germany (Stasi) or Russia (KGB) whose intelligence agencies their peoples fear.
Ronald Reagan once said, “The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
Under Barack Obama the most terrifying worlds became “I’m from the government and I’m here for your records.”
After surviving nearly two years of leftwing, state run proctologic-level examination, it’s a fairly safe bet that Donald Trump is the most honest president in at least three decades.
Every day it becomes clearer that the DOJ and the FBI cannot be counted on to investigate themselves. There are just too many Clinton, Bush, and Obama careerists who have proven their fealty to the deep state that those presidents nurtured and protected for them to be expected to do an about face now.
In fact, both the DOJ and the FBI have been stonewalling the production of documents that would prove the purposeful mishandling of investigations into Hillary Clinton’s wrongdoing – FISA application, Uranium One, Clinton Foundation-State Department pay-to-play, abuses of the Espionage Act, etc. – followed by throwing the full weight of these departments into destroying Donald Trump in a way that is reminiscent of Joseph Stalin’s secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria.
American patriots in Congress- there are still some – began beating the drums yesterday when Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) called for the impeachment of Rod Rosenstein during an interview with Maria Bartiromo. Rosenstein has been stonewalling the DOJ and FBI’s document production that has been requested by the committees required and empowered to perform oversight over his department.
It’s fairly obvious that if nothing incriminating were in the subpoenaed records they’d have been turned over a long time ago.
That’s why, last night, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY), took to the House floor and detailed the case for the appointment of a second special counsel to examine the politically motivated corruption that has taken root throughout the Department of Justice and at the FBI.
Zeldin was joined by colleagues Dave Brat (R-VA), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Louie Gohmert, Jr (R-TX), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Scott Perry (R-PA), and Claudia Tenney (R-NY) who all made compelling arguments for appointing a special counsel with broad investigative power to root out the corruption.
The mainstream media will accuse these brave representatives – brave because they’ve now put themselves in the DOJ’s crosshairs – of partisan politics. To that I ask, so? What have the Democrats been doing in their pursuit of Trump that is different?
Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans were voted into office based on the promises they made while campaigning. It’s their job to fulfill those promises not to acquiesce to the minority’s policies that the people rejected. That’s how a democracy works. If, as they have been doing, the Democrats choose to vote as a bloc in blocking the fulfillment of those campaign promises then they are the ones who are being partisan.
Democrats have banked their future on impeaching President Trump. Now the people they have counted on to defame Trump are themselves, because of their disregard for laws and standards of conduct, are deserving of their turn in the barrel. It’s inevitable that the stench coming from the DOJ and the FBI will soon affix itself to the Democrats who ballyhooed those unlawful actions earlier.
