The bad news is the swamp is deeper than we knew

So we had a terrific weekend in which Jeff Sessions canned Andrew McCabe. The swamp is draining.

But let us face the reality: the swamp is larger and deeper than we thought.

Let us look at the facts.

For eight years (likely more) the Democratic Party has used national security fears to spy on Americans. Do you think they began with Trump and confined themselves to political opposition?

Unmasking -- disclosing to political operatives who was spied upon and what they said -- was common.

"White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter," Bloomberg News reported last April.

"The pattern of Rice's requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government's policy on unmasking the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like 'U.S. Person One.'"

Transcripts were released to reporters. The New York Times used this wiretapped information -- that is what the Times called it -- for a front page story on Inauguration Day designed to undermine the new president.



The real story was that neither the Times nor the Obama administration should have had those tapes.

This was not a leak. This was espionage. And more than a year later, we have held no one accountable for compromising and corrupting our national security operations.

This is Stalinistic.

What happened to all that information -- at least eight years of spying on Americans -- that Obama gathered?

On November 9, 2016, or earlier, it was offloaded to Democratic Party computers. Transferring government secrets to personal computers is common among Democrats (and maybe Republicans).

We know this because the press did not seem alarmed about Hillary's private server. Her only crime was getting caught.

Bob Mueller's probe is designed to discredit Trump, cover up the many, many crimes of Obama and his followers, and finally, to gather more information. Hence, he subpoenaed Trump's business records and the like.

Mueller leaks like the Titanic, which is a sign that a prosecutor is in trouble.

Celebrate the canning of McCabe, but remember: we are still in the shallow water.

    2. Having lived in California, I would not. The state government has been corrupt for SO long. For example, Kamala Harris was once a student (and lover, it is rumored) of Willie Brown, he of the missing state owned Cadillacs and of the garbage truck shredders behind his office when finally voted out.

  2. An insurance policy is only as good as the company from which you purchase it. It seems that the insurance policy against the possibility of Donald Trump being elected was purchased from a substantial but very disreputable company. We'll see how that works out. - Elric

  3. Any vote for any Democrat at any time for any reason is tantamount to treason.

  4. We will know the swamp is draining when we start seeing people doing perp walks. Let's start ruining these people financially like the Mueller witch hunt has ruined Gen. Flynn. Start with McCabe. Prosecute him for his crimes. Same with Comey. Stumble-bum Crooked Cankles belongs in an orange jumpsuit. - GOC

  5. My emotional side, guys, is in favor of everything you said. My practical (religious?) side says that the world is fallen, falling faster these days it seems, and nothing we can do can stop the spread of evil until Jesus returns to judge. When that day comes, all these people you mentioned will have to answer. I know, I get it, in the meantime the rule of law should be upheld. And the FINAL victory is ours. But I'm not holding out hope that any of them will see jail time.

  8. You do realize "drain the swap" was just something he said because the rubes like it?

    "'Drain the swamp.' We put it in about two days ago. I said, 'Drain the swamp.' I didn't like it. I didn't like the expression: 'Drain the swamp in Washington,'" Trump said Oct. 26 at a rally in North Carolina. “So I said it three days ago; the place went crazy. I said, 'You know what? I'm starting to like that expression.' And now it's a hot — it's like trending all over the world.”

    2. Does the anonymous poster know that DC was chosen BECAUSE it's swamp? The Founding Fathers thought the misery in DC from late spring to early fall would be sure to keep politicians away and government small.

      Truman said the worst thing that ever happened to Washington, DC was air conditioning. He was correct. Until Obama.

    3. Yeah, Trump put that phrase in just because us rubes liked it.

      This is the first President since Reagan that actually listens to what We the People ask for, and does it; that's different, all right!

      Thank GOD for President Trump! #MAGA

  9. The swamp is even more pervasive than that. Warren's Consumer Protection Bureau was shakedown organization which made businesses pay "protection" by donating to left wing causes (read favored swamp dwellers) or pay big fines for made up infractions. https://thepoliticalinsider.com/cfpb-corruption-funnel-money/

    The EPA did something similar by having left wing organizations sue for environmental infractions that didn't exist, the EPA then rolled over and paid a big fine while instituting onerous restrictions on business.

    The judge in the Bundy trial excoriated the BLM for its abuse and underhandedness in prosecuting the Bundys then withholding exculpatory evidence.

    Judge Sullivan has ruled against the DOJ several times for the same reason and, after having taken over the Flynn case from Contreras, took the unusual step of inserting language in his instructions that the government be certain to turn over all discovery that may clear Flynn.

    To add to the criminality, Charles Ortel looked into the Clinton Foundation and it's pretty clear that politicians from friendly governments like Australia and the UK compromised themselves by donating taxpayer money to the Foundation that found its way into personal numbered bank accounts. Wonder why Australia and the UK have been so anti-Trump?

    There are TRILLIONS at stake and they were so close to having it all. Forever.

  13. I keep reading that this has been going on for the last 8 years. Does anyone remember back in the 90s when FBI files mysteriously showed up in the White House with Hillary's fingerprints on them? From the NY Times.

  14. I heard today that Trump has hired Joe diGenova as a personal lawyer. I saw an interesting video a while back in which Mrs. Clarence Thomas interviewed the man. He's not one to mince words and knows a lot about the phony Russia, Russia, Russia scam:

    1. Joe diGenovawas a US attorney who went after public corruption in DC. Pretty much a legendary figure.
      Trump's first lawyer was Roy Cohn, who brought down the Rosenbergs.

  15. “The bad news is the swamp is deeper than we knew.”

    Don’t you worry none.

    The man who played no small part in getting the low-lifes out of Times Square will get the bulk of them out of positions of power in DC.

    If that just leaves the dogcatchers in the pay of the cats, so be it.

  16. Don, it's Stalinistic because the swamp critters are Stalinists. Commies in drag. You have Bernie a true Commie. Brennan who voted Commie. I'm not surprised about the unmasking and spying on Americans. It's what the critters do.
