As I watched the different shows on Fox News today, I found myself amazed at the reaction by those in DC pertaining to the Deep State intelligence memo of the potential FISA abuses in the Russian Collusion Investigation. The Democrats have refused to read the memo, and they are even questioning the authenticity as to whether it proves illegal actions performed by those in the Intelligence agencies. However, the Republican lawmakers who read the memo have explicitly stated it contains information that will not only prove the Russia collusion claim is nothing but a lie, but the related criminal actions will more than likely lead to the upper levels of the Obama administration.
Over the last few days, I’ve heard this whole controversy compared to Watergate. To be honest, this makes Watergate look like a day in the park. However, for those of you too young to remember Watergate here is a short history lesson. Watergate involves one political party gathering dirt on the other party to use against them during a campaign. Sounds all too familiar, doesn’t it?
In 1972, five burglars were caught following a break-in of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington DC. Their goal was to gather information to be used against the Democrat candidate challenging the re-election of President Richard Nixon. While the burglary was a crime, it was the cover-up that brought about the end of the Nixon presidency. It looks just what those in the Deep State are facing today.
Once the Watergate cover-up was exposed, it led to President Nixon’s resignation. The Watergate break-in then went down in the history books as one of the greatest scandals to ever touch the office of President. It was also the beginning of something we’ve all seen, the use of the term gate attached to anything scandalous.
On Thursday, Republican members of the House took to Twitter and called for the release of the classified intelligence memo. They claim it will blow the lid off the Russian collusion investigation. House Intelligence Committee Republicans voted to make a classified report on FISA abuse available to House members, who could read the report behind closed doors.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) appeared on Fox Business Network, where he said, “The memo challenged the very foundations of democracy.” He then added, “If the American people knew what was happening; if they saw the contents of this memo, a lot would become clear about the information that I’ve been talking about the last several months.” The memo relates to the Obama FBI, Department of Justice, and then-candidate Donald Trump.
Rep. Gaetz then added, “I think that this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail. You don’t get to try to undermine our country, undermine our elections, and then simply get fired.”
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) also stated, “I viewed the classified report from House Intel relating to the FBI, FISA abuses, the infamous Russian dossier, and so-called ‘Russian collusion.’ What I saw is absolutely shocking.”
With statements, such as those it makes you wonder what could be so damaging in the memo? Does the memo show the FBI began its investigation based on the so-called Steele Dossier, a compendium of opposition research compiled by Fusion GPS on the instructions of the Democratic National Committee? If it’s true the FISA warrants were requested on the basis of DNC-funded opposition research, it would appear to politicize the FBI in a dangerous and serious way. As of now, 140 Republicans have read the memo, but ONLY one Democrat. Only one Democrat? Makes you wonder why the Democrats don’t want to know the truth… unless… they already knew the information contained in the memo. Makes you think, doesn’t it?
Lee Smith of Tablet Magazine wrote: “If the FBI and Department of Justice used a piece of opposition research paid for by a political campaign as evidence for a warrant to intercept the communications of a rival campaign—and the questions asked by congressional investigators suggest they did—then we are now living in a very different America than the one that generations of civil libertarians and small-government conservatives alike desired to maintain, and which large majorities in Congress have repeatedly voted for. The DOJ, the FBI and perhaps the CIA would be embroiled in a scandal likely to have long-lasting and sweeping consequences for intelligence collection, national security, and the safety and privacy of American citizens, to say nothing of how it will demoralize federal law enforcement, which will appear to be mired in partisanship and political corruption. Even more disconcerting is the increasing likelihood that the Steele dossier was used as a platform for a Russian information operation, which successfully managed to leverage nearly the entire American press corps and sections of the security bureaucracy toward the goal of encouraging Americans to rip their own country apart.”
I remember the first time I heard President Trump use the term, Drain the Swamp. I also remember how he seemed uncomfortable in saying it. However, the writer who gave him those 3 powerful words had somehow tapped into the truth of Washington DC. It really IS a swamp, full of creatures who will destroy anyone who gets in their way. I always knew there was corruption in government, but nothing could have prepared me for the depth and stranglehold the Deep State has on this nation.
As the clock ticks away, I wonder how many of the DC powerful will fall? How many will find themselves facing the loss of their power and maybe even prison? Heck, how many open positions will there be once the cleansing of DC goes into high gear? I know there will be those who claim this will cause some sort of constitutional crisis, but I believe it will get us BACK to the constitution. When the UNELECTED have more power than the people there is something wrong.
I remember a statement made by Rep Chuck Schumer in which he told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.” Well, it appears his warning to President Trump was not an empty one. With all the names supposedly listed on the memo, I’d be curious if Rep Schumer is one of them. I tell you here, and now, I would not be surprised in the least.
So, is this latest development in the Russian Collusion case groundbreaking? Yes, it is. Will it lead to the downfall of some of the most powerful in DC? Yes, it should. Is it bigger than the 1972 Watergate break-in? You’re damn right it is!
My fellow Patriots, I sense a new awakening in our country. For too long we have slumbered and trusted those elected to represent our best interests. We went about our lives oblivious to the corruption building up in the halls of Congress and in the White House. Then one man stepped up with a vision of putting America First and returning the country to the common man and woman. The electing of Donald Trump as President sent shockwaves across this country. He showed us that we no longer have to allow elected officials to govern for THEIR benefit, not that of the American citizen.
In his own unique way, President Trump showed the weak-kneed Republicans how to take the fight to the Democrats. He then played the Liberal media pundits as fools by exposing their lies and Fake News. Trump turned their crazy games upside-down. He rewrote the rules and took control of the narrative. Of course, this has driven the Liberals crazy and caused them to have complete meltdowns, but to this writer, it’s a long-awaited thing of beauty.
So, where do we go from here? At the time of writing this post, there is a little under 2 hours before the dreaded government shutdown. The Democrats are screaming that the Republicans are to blame for a government shutdown. However, who is demanding things that have NOTHING to do with our budget? Yep, that’s right… The Democrats!
Well, I have a message for the Democrats and their Deep State buddies. The American people are not on board with the whole Dreamer scheme. Most of us don’t even care about DACA. We have families of our own. We have bills to pay and want a better life for OUR children. We want a country that recognizes the rule of law and practices equal justice for all. Therefore, as far as most of us are concerned it’s time to Drain the Swamp and return the government to We, the People.
