What Would It Look Like If We Drained the Deep State Swamp?

After more than a decade of the FBI and the alphabet agencies routinely using illegal intel on Americans to control us, I wondered what it would be like to put a stop to it.  So, this is a thought experiment because, let’s face it, what we’re talking about is as theoretical as contemplating faster than light space travel.

First off, who could do it?  We saw Donald Trump successfully stopped in his attempts to even install a functioning attorney general.  Twice!  So, I guess the first question is would a president on his own be able to clean out the intelligence agencies?  Would he need supermajorities in the Congress and a friendly Supreme Court?

Actually, I don’t think he would.  What he would need is the military on his side.  Because I think the only thing that could bring these agencies to heel is the threat of military force.  If the FBI saw a brigade of US soldiers backed up by a tank or two, I think they’d stand down.

And that is what I’d suggest is the way to do it.  My guess at a plan is to announce to the country that I am demanding the resignation of the top three tiers of organization of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA and the rest of the intel agencies and I would warn them that if they didn’t comply within a day, they would be escorted out by armed troops.

Then I would appoint some interim personnel to dig down and eliminate anyone who wouldn’t immediately cooperate with the new authority being established.  Following that I’d find any existing personnel who would be willing to provide information on the “Resistance.”  And I would quickly move onto prosecuting the people responsible for the heinous events of the last few years.

After that I’d say the priority would be to pull the teeth of the beast.  The Patriot Act needs to be declared unconstitutional and the intelligence apparatus needs to learn again that American citizens actually have the freedoms enumerated in the Bill of Rights including the ones having to do with unlawful search.

By the way, I’m fully aware that the people who run these agencies will us every means within their control to destroy the people attempting to bring them down.  Threats and leaks of embarrassing or criminal conduct are sure to be used.  I wouldn’t be surprised if assassination were to be used.  After all the CIA specializes in that sort of thing.

What kind of a man would have the wherewithal to implement such an action?  First of all, he would need a team.  Whoever is selected to be the attorney general must be willing to stand up against the threats and coercion that will be thrown at him.  It’s obvious that Trump’s first attorney general Jeff Sessions was cowed by pressure that was brought to bear against him.  My guess is that they had embarrassing or criminal evidence against him and used it to force him to give up control of the Justice Department to the office holders that Obama had in place.

He’ll also need IT resources to investigate the tangled and troubling data collection capabilities that the agencies and the tech companies have assembled.  That will be a monumental job.

And finally, it will require taking back control of the borders and identifying all the illegal aliens residing in the country.  These individuals are the real threat to our security.  If a terrorist threat appears that is where it will come from.  The FBI and CIA should be concentrating on non-citizens and using the high-tech gadgetry they possess to preventing the next Sept. 11 attack coming from foreign agents, not spying on innocent Americans whose only sin is not being Democrats.

14JUN2019 – American Greatness Post of the Day – A Conservative Resistance? By Angelo Codevilla

Talking ’bout revolution!

Okay!  Codevilla is openly considering whether the red states should start emulating the blue states.  If the blue states openly defy drug laws then what if the red states defy the laws they disagree with; abortion, homosexuality, pornography, etc.  Of course you see how this goes downhill fast.  The next round on their side would be the 1st and 2nd amendments.  Codevilla is fast approaching the dissident right’s positions, if not from a philosophical perspective then at least from a tactical and practical perspective.

Well, if that went forward, things would definitely accelerate and I might have to move sooner than I expected.  Ahhh, I’m tired of snow anyway.

 

After you’ve read enough sexbot articles on Drudge maybe switch to something interesting

Trying to Write Satire in the Age of the Resistance

Any of the regular readers know that I dabble in ridiculous satire with a cartoon version of President Trump and absurd versions of all our favorite Washington villains.  Ove the last couple of years I’ve had newly elected President Trump become a werewolf and devour the State Department just to help drain the Swamp.  I’ve indulged in time travel, personality transfer technology and the President and the First Lady opening up a dating service to help Millennials avoid dying childless.  Nothing was beyond the pale.

But how can I compete with the Resistance?  A senior Senator from the great State of California introduced a woman who accused Brett Kavanaugh of complicity in multiple occurrences of gang rape at a college fraternity.  How can I compete with that?  I mean, after the first “incident” would there be a rationale for returning?  Was it just to make sure she wasn’t mistaken with respect to the nature of the proceedings?

The only way I can think of to keep up with real life is have one of the Resistance testify before the Senate to having been abducted onto a flying saucer at the hands of Space Alien Brett Kavanaugh.  That might work!  But I will have to work on the details.  Is Alien Brett a humanoid alien indistinguishable from earthlings?  Or is he one of the Star Trek, The Next Generation aliens that have some kind of wrinkles on their brow that saves enormous amounts of money on expensive latex costumes?  Or is he a really disgusting worm or squid or something and only looks human when he wants to like from Men in Black?  These are tough questions to decide on.  I guess from the point of view of the Resistance, there is no more horrible monster than a normal white man so if he’s that kind of alien it would sure make the conviction easy.  If he’s got the brow wrinkles he still looks mostly like a white man but it might earn him enough diversity points to confuse the shrieking harpies.  And if he’s a squid then the tree huggers will probably declare him an endangered species and declare him king of the world.  Decisions, decisions.

Well, anyway, you see my predicament.  Life has completely swamped out parody and satire.  There are literally no limits to the tactics these people will stoop to.  They will destroy anyone and everyone who stands in the way of their agenda.  I’ve maintained that the Alt-Right, Dissident Right or whatever else people call it is wrong to think that we can’t get back to normal.  They claim that the country is broken and all the kings’ horses and all the kings’ men are out of luck.  I’ve somewhat waveringly hoped that the Trumpocalypse will right the ship and we can cobble together a new coalition of the less crazy that can eliminate the toxic excesses of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society and try to rebuild on the ruins of the old society that really was great.  But it gets harder and harder to believe that the idiots on the establishment right are capable of withstanding the beating they will take if they try to resist the Resistance.  I mean it was sort of entertaining to hear Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell make noises like un-neutered men.  It was novel and it made me feel almost sympathetic for their plight.  Almost.  But they’re gonna have to do a whole lot better than that if they want to win.  Meanwhile let me get that copy of Galaxy Quest off the shelf.  I’m going with squid.
