Skip to comments.The Real Reason the Dems Want Trump Gone
Posted on 11/29/2019 6:06:55 AM PST by Kaslin
The calls to remove Donald Trump from office began before Donald Trump assumed office. Theyve wanted him gone from pre-day one and remain determined to run him off Pennsylvania Avenue by hook, crook, or any other means necessary.
If not for firing James Comey, then go to Michael Flynn. If that peters out theres Stormy and Avenatti. No traction? Russian collusion. Didnt get him? Ukraines up next. The effort to oust Trump has been nonstop for three years and shows no signs of slowing.
Why? Why is the inside-the-beltway permanent political class so determined to send Trump packing? Because hes not a member of The Club.
Yes Trump is ruff, gruff, combative, and bombastic, but theres lots of Club members who are all of those things, yet theyve been around Washington for decades. Truth is that The Club has been effectively insulating itself from the American people, enriching itself and its family members by burying self-pay schemes in the largess of government, and Trump is a threat. There are dark corners inside The Clubs clubhouse, lots of them, and Trump is wandering around with a flashlight.
Upon her private email server being subpoenaed by a congressional investigative committee, Hillary Clinton sent the computer to be professionally wiped clean of all files and then turned it over. Yet, the same people who expressed no interest in pursuing that clear obstruction of justice have been calling secondhand witnesses to a phone call, whose transcript has already been made public!
In his amazing tell-all book, "Drain the Swamp: How Washington Corruption Is Worse Than You Think," U.S. Congressman Ken Buck (R-CO) describes how, upon his arrival as a freshman legislator, he bounced from cocktail party to cocktail party, soiree to soiree: Waiters swarmed the rich, red carpets offering equally rich hors doeuvres. Fancy cheese and fruit trays decorated circular tables laden with salmon and tenderloin appetizers. Elegant orchids adorned the tables and wine flowed freely. The entire room swelled with the dulcet strains of a string quartet.
All this opulence caused Buck to wonder, Whos paying for all of this?!
We of course know the answer. Club members have at their direct disposal hundreds of billions of dollars and indirectly, multiple times more. Theres a reason theyre more concerned about Trumps inquiry into Joe Bidens dealings than they are with Bidens dealings. Washington Club members have been money laundering taxpayer dollars guised up as foreign aid, military aid, and humanitarian aid back to themselves through family, friends, foreign nations and corporations for decades. Ukraine is not unique.
While he was vice president, Joe Biden's brother, James, with no real background in housing and real estate development, went to work for a company that was then awarded a $1.5 billion federal contract to (re)construct houses in Iraq. How does that happen?
Also while he was vice president, Biden's son, Hunter, with no real background in oil and gas, secured a paid position on one of Ukraine's largest gas company's (Burisma Corp.) board that compensated him $83,000 per month.
How many companies hire someone with no experience for $83,000 per year, let alone per month?
Maxine Waters (D-CA), who won her last reelection bid with 76 percent of the vote, has paid her daughter, Karen Waters, $750,000 of campaign-funded money to help get mailers out. (Now imprisoned) former Florida Representative Corrine Brown set up a phony charity to grift money from donors under the guise of helping the poor, money which she paid to herself to support a lavish lifestyle.
These egregious examples of self-enrichment are Democrats, but such activities are certainly not unknown on the other side of the political aisle. Its been going on for decades, allowed by politicians who were/are either too green to know how the game works, are involved and complicit themselves, or have learned to look the other way rather than blow a whistle, lest their political careers come to a screeching halt by those in power above them who control the (campaign) purse strings and (committee assignment) keys to purgatory.
Since forever, The Club has been cutting deals and running scams for themselves and their families through which they end up filthy rich, incredibly powerful, travel the world at no personal expense, and eat quail on crackersall not only behind their constituents backs, but with those constituents dollars.
In Trump theres finally someone at the helm who is not a part of the cabal, not a part of The Club, who has his own money, whose children don't need shady, foreign board of directors side deals. And, he's a threat to blow the whole thing up. He's shining lights into corners that they prefer remain dark. They must get rid of him; they can't allow this outsider and his flashlight to run roughshod inside the clubhouse. Dark corners must remain dark, no candles allowed. So for three straight years, theyve looked for something, anything to get his wick snuffed out.
That's what's really going on.
cuz a lot of them are out of jobs....watched this in our local politics for years.
So long as folks don’t understand that our RINOs are just as guilty we aren’t going to drain the swamp.
Last time i checked Trump appears to be the only man in DC that actually earned his fortune outside of politics.
The corruption is so pervasive - this writer has it totally correct - that they will do almost anything to get rid of President Trump.
(Pray for his protection!)
One man against an ocean of greed and graft. How can he drain the swamp? Only through multiplied prayers and God’s grace, IMHO.
Even then, it will be nigh unto a miracle for “the Club” to be stopped and exposed for all to see.
The 10th Amendment was specifically designed to prevent all this.
But, the Empire would have none of it.
Every organization has a club or clique.
That is not only true, it is factual
Theres a reason Democrats are more concerned about Trumps inquiry into Joe Bidens dealings than they are with Bidens dealings.
Because theyre all crooks, selling out the country and dont want to be caught.
And it’s not just the left. Look at companies like Halliburton, Dick Cheney, and Republican cronies like McCain and Graham, and most important from the past and still involved Bush and Henry Kissinger. It is actually a very bipartisan agreement across the aisle. Both sides are very against what Trump might expose.
Ginsburg. She is hanging on by a heartbeat. Giving Trump the opportunity of a lifetime to make the court 6-3 in ideology, is making the Dems absolutely nuts. When he is re-elected, he will have a chance to replace Sotemayer and Kagen after they are impeached for bad behavior.
Every one of those was important.
1. Secure the border and control immigration.
2. Withdraw from interminable undeclared foreign wars.
3. Go after pedophiles hard, fast, and continuously.
All three of these are important, and the press tried to minimize all three of these and to make Trump's campaign about other issues. But by holding rallies in person Trump has circumvented attempts to redefine his agenda.
The people who you see on Free Republic criticizing Trump for continuing nationwide rallies instead of just focused rallies in battleground states are aware of this, and they themselves desire to redefine Trump's agenda in their debates.
As long as he keeps hold events everywhere, in person, Trump keeps winning and keeps control of his message.
So long as folks dont understand that our RINOs are just as guilty we arent going to drain the swamp.
Exactly. Normalcy bias reigns. Most folks don’t want to face the ugly truth that our institutions are corrupt and many are simply unreformable.
This is why we so desperately need term limits. And some control of lobbyists, although I am not sure what that would look like. There needs to be a mechanism by which lobbyists are prevented from buying policy and influence.
The corruption runs so deep.
Trump knows what Americans want, because he is one.
limited government vs statism
