  • Shattuck: Score McCabe’s ouster as a victory for President Trump

    G-man down. And for good reason. President Trump put it succinctly in a tweet yesterday: “As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State,” adding a “#DrainTheSwamp” for good measure. The president is right and Andrew McCabe finally ran out of luck Friday night when Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave him his walking papers.

    TodayÂ’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) While the fake news media outlets like CNN and MSNBC spent all day Saturday trying to brainwash the public into believing Andrew McCabe is pretty much as pure as the Virgin Mary, and that he was fired for purely political reasons, itÂ’s important to remember the facts we do know about him: This is a man who has spent his entire career making a government salary, and yet somehow has managed to accumulate a reported net worth in excess of $11 million; - McCabeÂ’s firing was brought about via a recommendation from...

    Sorry to spoil your St. Patrick's Day week-end, but I believe most of you good folks who read my stuff would want to know that the DEEP STATE (Shadow Government, Swamp, whatever) has been IDENTIFIED in the video at the link.

    The Family Research Council (FRC) said in a statement Tuesday that the nomination of Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State will enhance the administration’s goal of a return to “American values and principles” and make support for human rights and religious freedom a priority. “President Trump has been an agent of change in Washington,” said FRC president Tony Perkins in a press statement. “It is hard to identify another federal agency that is in more need of change than the State Department, which has historically and consistently been at cross purposes with American values and principles. Mike Pompeo is a...

  • Reforming The Bureaucracy: How Trump Is Taming The Leviathan

    02/14/2018 6:55:55 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 26 replies
    Governing: While our distracted national media fawn over a murderous dictator's evil sister and pretend that the Rob Porter White House scandal means something, President Trump continues to remake our government. Quietly, Trump has begun to whittle away at the power and permanence of our nation's bureaucratic ruling class by slashing regulations and limiting powers that Congress foolishly has allowed it to take over. It's not merely the size of the bureaucracy that matters. It's the increasing power that gives the anonymous men and women who toil in the U.S.' unofficial fourth branch of government immense say over nearly every...
  • You're fired: Trump to rid 'worst' federal workers, automatic raises, fat bennies

    The Washington Examiner ^ | February 9, 2018 | Paul Bedard
    President Trump plans to take the huge federal Civil Service off cruise control, ending automatic pay increases that go to 99.7 percent of the workforce, trimming fat benefit packages, and for the “worst,” rolling out his trademark phrase from The Apprentice, “You’re fired!” In his budget, set for release Monday, his administration is planning the biggest reform to the federal workforce in decades, using models from Amazon, Google, and a handful of well-operating agencies. Officials said the overall goal is to bring the 1950s-styled Civil Service into the digital age, introduce automation, reward “the best” with bonuses, make it easier...

    New York Post ^ | Feburary 1,2017 | By Paul Sperry
    Failing to get traction on their Russia “collusion” front, Sen. Mark Warner and other top Democratic inquisitors now suggest President Trump is obstructing justice by forcing a shake-up at FBI headquarters. But FBI sources tell me the pressure to clean house is also coming from inside the bureau, and it’s based on real concerns over malfeasance by top brass there. In a healthy sign, new FBI Director Christopher Wray is slowly but surely sweeping partisan operatives out of the bureau’s executive suites all on his own. On the job just a few months, Wray told Congress in December he wanted...

    Whistleblowers, Republican congressional members, and some former intelligence officials cite mounting concern that the White House may not release the House Intelligence Committee’s FISA abuse memo as the FBI pushed against plans to make it public based on false allegations that the memo contains information that would harm U.S. national security, sources tell this reporter.The memo alleges severe abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice but FBI Director Christopher Wray Wednesday warned against the release of the memo issuing a public statement from the FBI that the bureau has “grave concerns...

    A year after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, analysts and commentators are assessing both his performance in the first year of his presidency as well as the outlook for the remainder of his first term. Entering office as a surprise winner and a political neophyte, many people didn’t know just what to expect from Trump. Would he do what he pledged to do as a candidate, or was his campaign rhetoric just a lot of hot air to bamboozle enough people into voting for him? One of Trump’s most popular promises was to “drain the swamp” and, while the president has...

    President Trump broke with top officials at the Justice Department and called for the release of a classified memo purported to list Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses by the U.S. government, The Washington Post reported Saturday. Despite warnings from top officials at the agency, Trump reportedly told Attorney General Jeff Sessions through chief of staff John Kelly that he wants to see the memo released, believing that it will shed light on the special counsel investigation. Trump “is inclined to have that released just because it will shed light,” a senior administration official told the Post. “Apparently all the rumors...
  • WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: Did President Trump Just Declare WAR on Hillary, Deep State and DC Swamp?

    December 21st is a day that will live in infamy. Remember that date. The world changed on December 21st and no one noticed. That will soon change. The great conservative talk host Michael Savage was the first to define liberalism as a “mental illness.” But it turns out liberals back then were relatively sane compared to today. Today’s liberals are frothing at the mouth, spitting, howling at the moon and threatening publicly to assassinate President Trump. One protestor at the Los Angeles women’s march this past weekend carried a sign that said, “Kill Donald Trump, Kill Mike Pence. It’s guillotine...

    [clip] In other words, Trump’s EO targets pretty much everyone, anywhere in the world. If you participated in any form of corruption or human rights abuses, we’re coming after you and seizing all your assets. Who should be sick to their stomachs right now? A) The entire DC swamp. B) Every lobbyist in DC who has ever aided a foreign entity in doing any business that hurt American taxpayers. C) Hillary Clinton and anyone ever involved with the Clinton Foundation. D) Any and all donors to the Clinton Foundation- including foreign donors, who got any favor in return. E) Specifically,...

    The Sacramento Bee ^ | January 24th, 2018 | By the Editorial Board
    What, pray tell, does Rep. Devin Nunes think he’s doing by waving around a secret memo attacking the FBI, the nation’s premier law enforcement agency? He certainly isn’t representing his Central Valley constituents or Californians, who care much more about health care, jobs and, yes, protecting Dreamers than about the latest conspiracy theory. Instead, he’s doing dirty work for House Republican leaders trying to protect President Donald Trump in the Russia investigation. It’s no accident that this latest attempt to discredit the FBI and distract the public is happening at the same time special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe appears to...

    For a brief, shining moment, CNN paused in its nonstop coverage of everything it loathes about President Trump for some actual “breaking news.” One of the network’s reporters had noticed that Congress was looking into malfeasance and political corruption at the Obama-era Department of Justice, FBI, and intelligence agencies.  This is still news to most mainstream outlets.There are now three major congressional investigations, peeling away layers of political bias, unequal application of the law, and, perhaps even felonies by senior officials who may have leaked classified documents, obstructed justice, and violated Fourth Amendment guarantees against unreasonable search and seizure.These probes...

    Anyone who supports President Donald Trump, and even his critics, are familiar with his promise to end the corruption that infests Washington D.C. "Drain the Swamp!" was the rally cry, the aspiration of millions to see our federal government rid of self-serving politicians, lobbyists, corporate leeches, and various other special interest groups. The American people want control over their government: they want to see it working for them, and not as merely a tool for the well-connected in D.C. to stuff their pockets and off-shore bank accounts. How successful has this effort been? This article will compare the corruption problem...
