Just as the news media condemns the removal of illegal aliens from this country because they have skirted the law for years and sometimes decades, they renounce the removal of a criminal from the justice department before he can continue to further bilk taxpayers for his disgraceful behavior.

First, let us start with truth. Any law enforcement officer, criminal judge or even a behavioral specialist will tell you that when a person is caught, rarely is it the first time he or she has committed a misdemeanor or felony. Often they may have done the same or similar things many times in the past. As a for instance, when a person is pulled over by a patrol officer for speeding, it may be the second, tenth or hundredth time that person actually broke a speed decree. They may have disregarded many stop signs or red lights before being caught speeding this time. Not being caught before does not exonerate any previous wrongs.

It should matter naught whether a politician has a (D), (R) or (I), behind their name. It is how they act and vote that matters. Is it in the best interest of the majority of citizens or is it in the name of some focus group or small but loud agitation faction? Is that vote one for the continued success of a democratic republic or is it one that will eventually change our republic into a two tiered (elite and subservient) socialist or communist regime?

Liberals like to bellow that Mueller is a Republican, therefore his investigation into a president who won the election under the Republican party ticket is honorable and not to be questioned. The fact that his investigative team is made up of highly partisan Democrats who display a significant shortsightedness regarding the misgivings of any and all members of their chosen party is to be overlooked.

John McCain’s service to the country while in uniform and his courageous endurance while in captivity is certainly honorable and commendable. His liberal disservice to this very same country while in the House and Senate, however, is not to be lauded. The fact that he, Jeff Flake and Ben Sasse – Never Trumpers all – call themselves Republicans does not make them conservative or preservative of the country we know. They would rather change the stature and structure of the country than publicly agree that a Washington outsider’s attempt to restore law, order and culture to America is in the best interest of the citizens even if it is not best for politicians.

Likewise, just because a person or group of people managed to gain entry into the country illegally or overstay their granted welcome (visa) and remain for weeks, months or years before being detected does not justify any “right” to remain. It does not convey to them the rights and privileges accorded to citizens.

That brings us to the dilemma of Andrew McCabe. McCabe is a man who was finally identified and fired for performing duties contrary to those for which he was hired. Some say that it is disrespectful for the Attorney General to fire him and relieve the taxpayers of a $1.8 million burden just days before his scheduled retirement. Others say that the firing should have taken place months ago and saved the taxpayers his salary to this point. As illustrated above, this is the time for which he was identified as subversive. It does not mean that it was the first time in his 21 year career that he did something against bureau protocol with a politically minded purpose.

I’m sorry, but I keep retrieving “information” from left-of-center sources. You know, the ones the president deems fake news. I find their “truths” most often devoid of facts while filled with bias, speculation and ungrounded opinion. Generally it is amazingly contradictory to what I accept as true after a little research.

I have a tendency to probe further when I find something that is out of whack from what I have come to believe or even too close to what I want to believe. I chase rabbits down holes where most people would twist an ankle and limp away without regarding the overall cause or effect of the depression before I form conclusions. My writings are often days after the fact because I want them to be correct, not speculative and opinion drawn. Yeah, I’m that kind of different.

Recently, I have concentrated on the talking heads who spout that Donald Trump is a dictator. Again, there is no substantiation for the sentiment, just the accusation. It’s like calling someone a racist, without recognizing that the person is of mixed race or part of a family comprised of many races, just because there is a disagreement of policy or conviction. The dictator appellation is always thrown out by people who don’t understand a dictatorship. They are the same people who advocate for the Castro brothers, Kim Jung un, Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro. They ignorantly embrace socialism and communism believing either governing and economic system is better than a capitalist free society because that is what they’ve been taught in school.

They are the people who applauded President Obama for unconstitutionally enacting prohibitive regulations on their and our lives because he is charismatic. They are the people who believe it is better to be dependent on government than it is to be responsible for their personal well-being. They are the generation(s) still living with their parents because whatever income they derive, is worthy of gifts only for themselves. They would prefer using the family car to owning and maintaining their own. Allowing mom or dad to pay the the insurance premium is what parents are all about.

They are the same lemmings who do the grunt work on behalf of multi-millionaire community organizers and billionaire subversives who’s goal is to ultimately subjugate them. To them, causing occasional social disturbance with physical violence for $10 or $15 an hour is preferable to an eight hour shift and regular income.

We have seen a tremendous change in society over the past few decades as the public school teachers and college professors spend more time and effort advocating for gender confusion and social justice than they do educating students. What we now have is generation after generation of youth who cannot read their high school diplomas (even if they receive one), but know it is racist to point it out…no matter what their heritage.

What they have is an ignorant love for dictatorship because they don’t understand what it is. However, they will protest it when it comes upon them. That generation will wish Donald Trump was still, or again, their president.

Our federal government is in organized and intended chaos, but President Trump is not to blame and I am not an apologist for the man. There are some people purposely entrenched within the bowels of bureaucracy who fight each and every attempt to restore civility and governance to Washington D.C. They sit at the desks within virtually every agency and within the offices of many of our representatives on Capitol Hill.

To describe him in the most kind terms, President Trump is blunt, curt, abrasive and even profane. He is direct and leaves little to question when he speaks. He refuses to adhere to the use of any foggy terms as dictated by political correctness. There are no subtleties about this man. He is as open and transparent as any person in the political arena because he is not a politician even though he is now the leader of the political U.S.

We recently experienced eight years of a president who ruled by edict, said one thing and did the opposite. He intentionally embedded subversives throughout the government to help him and his cabal destroy the American system. It reminds me of the Isley Brothers song from 1969…with slightly modified lyrics; It’s your thing, do what you wanna do. I’ll just tell you who to sock it to.” And we saw that happen live when American citizens were assaulted by the IRS, the DOJ, NSA, FBI, EPA, HUD, BLM, DHS and many of the other agencies and departments under Obama’s tenure and purview. Fortunately, because of the way much of the oppression was enacted, it can also be rescinded by similar action and Trump has already reversed many of those abusive executive actions.

I wrote some years back that President Obama, by using executive orders and memos, was setting up within the government situations that would take decades to unwind. Obamacare is but one example. By suckering the ignorant mass population into a scheme that would, and has, forced and enveloped them in a cistern from which there is no easy return, Obama set the stage for ongoing congressional pugilism. Some of the people have an entitlement and now believe it is their right. Thus, you cannot take it away from them. Dismantling the PPACA is now at least a five year battle and, other than removing the mandated tax penalty, nothing has been done to terminate it. Nothing about the costly act provides health care to the individuals who need it most. It only costs those who can barely afford care far more.

WOTUS (Waters of the United States) is another example. When a rancher is fined for collecting runoff from his rooftop in a barrel or other vessel or utilizing the water from a collective depression on his land as drinking water for his livestock, we are well under way to a communist state where the government owns and controls everything and hurts you if you try to act normal.

Yes, there is some turmoil within the White House. To identify and replace the operatives put in place to cause harm by anarchy is not a two day job. They are deceitful and difficult to pinpoint; it will take a while. Even some of those who professed to be on the side of right and good snuck in through the back door during the transition.

It may take the full four year term to overcome the Alinsky playbook set in place over the past eight years. It may even take longer. I’m personally convinced, however, that Trump will do his best to set the country back on the right course. He has done much in the past year and may yet erase the damage done by the radical Marxist/socialist that preceded him who continues to throw stones and build blockades.

The people we elect to the House and Senate must be the best possible representatives from each district and state. They should be leaders within their community. They must be of high morals and integrity. Their history might include volunteer work; graciously giving of their time without compensation. They may be, but should not be, chosen because they are the wealthiest, best known or most easily recognized unless they have a lengthy and demonstrated history of doing what is best for others. National celebrity is not a qualification for ranking government office. Career politicians need not apply!

Term limits is an expression we often hear regarding our legislative branch. Unfortunately, the ones charged with setting limits on how long a person is able to take taxpayer money without genuine responsibility for its proper use are those who want to keep doing it for as long as possible. Many have known no job other than politics or living off the public dole in some capacity, e.g. community organizer. Some are approaching a half century in office. One is beyond that mark. This is not service to the country, this is the cancerous growth of a government barnacle.

We the People” need to come together in an Article V Convention of States to formally amend the guidelines that govern our nation and those who administer the guidelines. The convention must set limits of tenure for our representatives and define responsibility and accountability for those people we authorize to make decisions on our behalf. The Convention must be a forum open to the citizens, not just the public parasites previously elected.

One such suggestion for serious consideration is three two-year terms for House members and two four-year terms for the Senate. After service, the departing members are entitled to the retirement they have funded along with a taxpayer match of $1 for every $3 they invest in themselves.

Additionally, we need an ethics committee made up, not of shoulder and elbow rubbing peers, but honest people from various walks of life who are interested in true public service with a sincere interest in the best, most honest and dependable government imaginable. Without regard for political mindset (however, political activism is a preclusion), it is possible to assemble intelligent people whose primary vocation is among the various construction trades, hospitality, sales, finance, transportation, agriculture, sports, education or any field other than law and politics.

Those people selected for the ethics committee must be thoroughly vetted by their community, local and federal law enforcement before their names are submitted for consideration.

The position on the committee should be a commitment termed at three years. For the sake of continuity, the first, and only the first, body having individual engagement commitment of 1, 2 and 3 years. The positions cannot be a predicate or stepping stone for political office. The committee might be made up of credible people currently out of work, those seeking a break from their field to assess the viability of changing to another calling or people simply interested in a strong, sound and honest governing body. The committee must have the capability and authority to remove corrupt, criminal or dishonorable elected and appointed individuals from the payrolls of the American taxpayer.

We need term limits to suppress the corruption that longevity breeds within our elected officials. These changes will not happen from within, they must come from and be controlled by “We the People”.

While lawyers might be the most knowledgeable about legalese, the laws need to be written such that the average person can read and understand them. The specificity of language by which we are expected to live our everyday lives can leave no doubt or be ambiguous. When it comes to obeying current laws, we find convoluted language with apertures so gross that any interpretation is possible.

Let us return to a government “of the people, by the people and for the people”.

I am not a Trump supporter. I did not vote for President Trump in the primary though I did vote against the lying, conniving and corrupt malefactor known as Hillary Rodham Clinton in the general election.

That said, I find myself tending to defend the president’s attempts to make America great again more and more with every attack on him from the left and established politicians of both parties. It is not necessarily because I agree with everything he’s doing, it’s just an innate need to counter-resist the insanity that is pushed into my face and senses every day.

I have, from before the beginning of his presidency, believed that he will do what he can to make the necessary changes to the political inbreeding of the past century. The eight year period prior to his inauguration was filled with Alinsky divisiveness to turn this country into a Marxist/socialist experiment. The Constitution was shredded with executive orders, underhanded and corrupt dealings, illegal and unnecessary regulations, fines and confiscations.  Many of President Obama’s actions and those he encouraged were contrary to our founding documents and laws passed by congress thereafter. The courts are just now getting around to ruling on and reversing those violations.

President Obama sliced and diced the country thinner than any Ginsu cutlery could and in more ways than one can count.  He pitted blacks against whites, poor and working Americans against their wealthier counterparts, workers against management, women against men, Latinos (even American Latinos) against other Americans, gays against straights and virtually every possible faction and subset of our society against those whose views were different. There was no compromise. Deep and wide chasms were formed where dialogue once existed. By his promotion and organizing, discussion became vitriolic and dislike became hatred.

The task of restoring our democratic republic is only made harder by those entrenched in government stalling and combating the president’s every effort. This is coming not only from those elected to congress, but from the career bureaucrats who view change as a threat to their existence. It’s as if they fear their effective tenure inoculation will be rendered deficient. In reality, any change to increase efficiency and economy is truly a threat to them. Some may even have to quit playing GTA and watching as much porn on our computers during the work day and get a little work done.

It happens to be Donald Trump, a man with a tendency to be direct and abrasive when demeaned or belittled. However, it could be anybody in the White House trying to make major changes and correct the course of the current and failing political structure in Washington, D.C. (the swamp). There are simply too many public functionaries anchored throughout the halls of all federal (now feral) entities for a small cadre to overcome within a few months. Congress stalls appointments and the intelligence and law enforcement arms refuse to cooperate for fear of indicting themselves. They seem to still be taking orders and directions from the immediate past president who forms and organizes public and private resistance just a short distance from the White House.

I’ve been watching politics since the mid 1970s, perhaps a bit before, and this is the first time that I can recall former presidents and congressional members (without respect to party) attacking a duly elected president outright. Yes, there have been one-off snide comments, snipes and innuendos over the years, but nothing like the unmitigated onslaughts that happen on an almost daily basis. This year and last has been a circus of has-beens, wannabes and other losers trying to one-up each other and take their 15 minutes of celebrity by shooting the captain in the back before scuttling a seaworthy ship.

To restore law and order, the filthy swamp must be drained, dehydrated and incinerated.  We voters must then refill the void with new and hygienic resources in Washington, D.C. and our local governments.
