Finally. Now shut down Mueller, arrest Comey and clear out the NSA, CIA and FBI, by tomorrow.
Barr goes to the full senate. He could be approved next week. To be continued.
One of the guys in the office is agitated. He thinks Trump has collapsed and the world is coming to an end. There are articles this guy read that say that Trump is caving on judicial appointments to some of the Circuit Courts. And also, he’s worried about the Wall not getting built.
So, what do I think about all this? My bottom line is Barr must get approved soon. I saw that Graham gave the Dems an extra week before the committee vote takes place. I read that this timing will give Mueller the opportunity to damage the President during some announcement he is working on. Fine, Graham is useless, I know that. My read on this is that Barr should be approved by February 15th. If by March he isn’t approved then I’ll start to think that Trump is trapped. Getting control of the Justice Department is the most important objective Trump needs to get done right now. If he lets that slide then there is little hope of reining in the Deep State that is running amok arresting his friends and associates at will. So that is what I tell those panicking. If we reach March and Barr isn’t Attorney General then I’ll admit Trump has been boxed in and won’t be able to clean out the Justice Department.
But getting agitated does nothing. Start taking concrete steps in your own life to protect yourself and your family from the terrible people and things that are going on all around you. Form alliances and relationships with people who have shown themselves to be reliable and you can trust. Support people who are brave enough to identify themselves as supporting the truth about what’s going on. Ignore the liars and cowards of the establishment republican slate. Don’t support them and don’t give them a penny. If the Democrats take the Presidency then we are the real resistance. They will dismantle this country. They showed us that under Obama. Then we have to decide how we respond to that. Make a stand or leave or become slaves. Those seem to be the choices.
Let’s face it, inaction by the Trump Administration to clean up the nightmare in the Justice Department (Mueller, Rosenstein, FISA Courts and the whole FBI in general) has been a discouraging debacle. But Julie Kelly lays out why she thinks that will now turn around with installation of William Barr as the AG. Read it and see what you think. It sounds good but two years of this nonsense has worn down my optimism.
This article hits some of the high points. If Barr can begin controlling the Justice Department and get it working on the real legal problems we currently face (people being fired or de-platformed for being normal) then we might see life returning somewhat to normal.
The President said the meeting was a total waste of time. Let’s hope this means he’ll starve the buggers out.
This is a rant I did on a forum where the foster care system and the abuses by family courts and the CPS (child protective services) were being discussed.
The old system of children’s homes was better. Sure, there were occasional abuses but nothing of the same order of magnitude as the current system. The current system is a pedophile’s dream. My sister and her husband were foster parents. They got kids so damaged by the system that many had to wind up being institutionalized. They finally adopted four kids, a pair of brothers and a pair of sisters, that had been physically and sexually abused by other foster families in the system. NONE OF THOSE FORMER FOSTERS HAS SEEN THE INSIDE OF A JAIL CELL. Yes, there are good foster parents like my sister and her husband, but there is a large minority of really bad ones.
CPS is also rampant with corruption and inefficiency as well as outright dereliction. Even with good foster parents like my sister and her husband, scheduled visits by CPS were often not performed for MONTHS. The case worker was supposed to lay eyes on these kids on a regular basis, but it was often three months or more between visits. Then the money system in CPS is also crooked and ripe for abuse. The former CPS director of our county was arrested, charged and convicted of embezzlement. $400k I believe. Payments to foster families was spotty and dispersed so that the families could not keep track if they were being properly reimbursed, Sometimes, payments were months late and listed the wrong expenses. This is a tactic of CPS to siphon off money. A forensic check of the finances that caught the former director said that the financial system was totally in chaos. It has not gotten any better since. Our local county commissioners tried to get involved but were smacked away from the table by the state and state court judges.
The system is totally broken. Children are being abused, sold, and killed. Suicide rates for foster children are through the roof. Many blame drugs, and I agree somewhat but that is no excuse for institutionalized abuse, rape, slavery and murder. One child a few counties over was found dead in Arizona, half the country away. Until she was identified nobody knew she was missing. She had been gone for two years. The foster family never reported her missing (they likely sold her), and the CPS caseworker had not checked on the child in two years, although her case files said that she had. She merely faked the reports. Upshot? The parents were denied future foster care and the caseworker resigned with NO CRIMINAL PENALTIES FOR ANYONE INVOLVED.
Blow up the whole system now. Today. Reinstitute children’s homes (orphanages) where they are all in one place and easy to watch.
Well, here we are. Christmas is a fond memory and the do-nothing Republican led House is about to become the cannot-do-anything Democrat led House. President Trump is bringing home the troops from the Middle East and will let the partial government shutdown send the bureaucrats home without their big fat paychecks.
I’ll have to read up on the actual constraints of shutting down the government. I’m guessing the military will have sufficient funds to fuel jets and feed troops. I don’t know what happens to Social Security checks and Medicare bills. Both sides are making noises about who will pay the price for turning out the lights in D.C. and filling in the Grand Canyon during the hiatus. Several people on our side of the divide have opined that since most of the civil service are Democrat supporters this will hurt them more than us and will bring them to the bargaining table first. Sounds plausible.
I’m guessing that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi will be the brokers on their side. And I’m wondering if the “Dreamers” will be the carrot that will be waived to get the wall built. I’m hoping that they won’t be given any amnesty. It’s just too slippery a slope. Before you know it everyone in the Third World will be identified as a Dreamer.
More importantly, what will be the path forward to evicting the tens of millions of squatters who currently inhabit the country? At some point it has to be started if the wall is to have any meaning. Enforcing the current immigration laws has to be part of any strategy to secure the border and return authority over the country to the legal residents. And since it is already within existing legislation to do it, no battles in Congress are necessary. All that is needed is the will and control over the bureaucracy and law enforcement agents whose job it is to carry out these existing policies.
I say this as if it were easy. It’s not. Currently the Justice Department isn’t even under the control of the President. He must first get his Attorney General appointed and the mutinous crew currently running the various agencies fired and out of the buildings. Then he has to find capable honest people to take their places and doing the job. I don’t envy him the task. It’s enormous.
It should be a very interesting January. A few weeks without their paychecks should focus the minds of a lot of bureaucrats and hopefully make them more receptive to cutting a deal over immigration. This will also be a real test of President Trump. Battling Congress and dealing with his executive branch mutiny, not to mention the Mueller comedy is a titanic assignment. I think he is up to the challenge and I wish him all the luck and success he can get. Maybe it’s just the lingering Christmas food glow but somehow, I’m feeling optimistic. We’ll probably know by Valentine’s Day who wins the game of chicken.
Last week was the mockery of the Weekly Standard closing. This week he tweaks the Press when their White House “Holiday” Party gets deep sixed. Ho – Ho – Ho.
I was talking to a friend at work who is right wing guy. He is definitely more pessimistic than I am at this point. He was talking about events and how bleak things looked to him. I tried to cheer him up by reminding him that the press does a cyclic “Mueller is going to jail Trump” thing every month or so and it doesn’t make much sense getting worried about it. But he was just generally discouraged and stressed that the way things were going there was no way things would get better. I couldn’t tell him that I believed that we would definitely prevail against the Left because that would be overly optimistic. But I told him that I wasn’t going to despair even if we don’t beat the Left in the next few years. What I said was that if all else fails it’s our job to protect our own families from being propagandized and destroyed by the Left. He agreed but was extremely negative about the future. I ended by saying that at least we would know soon enough which way things will go because Trump is the strongest card we have to play. If he fails, we can’t expect a better chance to come along. With this he agreed.
I got to thinking about this while I was driving home. It really is true. President Trump is the last best hope we have of prevailing in the foreseeable future. If he fails, we’re each on our own. If we can form some kind of underground it will be a grass roots business with small groups based on friendship and family connections. Larger than that will leave it open to the type of surveillance that the security apparatus has perfected. To expand beyond that will take community building that resembles a religious group. We know that the government has already shown its willingness to harass religious groups in any way it wants. But that is probably still the best way to grow a grassroots movement. It provides a way to meet and socialize. The idea of founding a fraternal organizational that allows people to preserve the traditional beliefs and share in community activities appeals to me strongly. It could have all kinds of worthwhile and fun activities. And I just want to state for the record that although I am willing to accept the title of Grand Master, I absolutely refuse to wear a fez.
All kidding aside, it is without a doubt the case that if President Trump is defeated, we must assume that controlling the government won’t be an avenue for preserving traditional life. I’ll take it to mean that the dissident right is correct in thinking that the United States as we knew it, no longer exists. That’s a sobering thought.
Okay, enough gloom and doom. Now let’s accentuate the positive. Trump is President and didn’t let the maniacs bust through the southern border. He says he’ll get the army to build the wall if needed. And he yelled at Nancy Pelosi and Cryin’ Chuck Schumer at the White House this week. He is still providing quality entertainment while defying our enemies. And even if Trump is succeeding, it doesn’t mean I can’t declare myself the Grand Poobah anyway.
