In some of the FBI/DOJ e-mails, there was a reference to an “insurance policy” in the event that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election. It wasn’t until recently that the real meaning of this was clearly understood. While there was rampant speculation over the implications, there was no clear and direct connections between those words and specific actions. As a result of this week’s reports on wiretapping involving the communications of the President, the Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel is the “insurance policy”.
While the criminal behavior at the highest levels of the Obama administration’s DOJ and FBI goes unpunished, Mueller’s Special Counsel runs amok far beyond what its mandate is or should be. Individuals who have marginal connections to President Trump or even no presidential election connections are being threatened, arrested and bankrupted by insinuation or appearance of illegality. The costs to defend themselves and their reputations from probing investigations unsupported by relevant or reasonable proof are extensive. Fake claims are made and the leftist media picks them up, embellishes them, and then runs them as page one news. This is a direct assault on the Constitution, the Rule of Law, and the American citizenry by a small group of socialist leaning politicians and their bureaucratic handmaidens.
What is most astonishing is that most if not all of the prosecutorial activity has focused on President Trump’s friends and associates – all too often before he even decided to run for president. The FBI invasions of Trump’s personal lawyer and a couple of confidants were draconian at best and frightening in their implications. The potential for a violent confrontation leading to injury or death was obvious but apparently not considered in the FBI /DOJ rush to activate the “insurance policy”. The wiretapping of the Trump campaign and presidency by an agency of government that the president supposedly controls is stunning.
I remember the coup attempt against then President Nixon. First, Vice President Spiro Agnew was taken out because he “took money under the table” while Governor of Maryland. The fact that every governor of Maryland up to that point “took money under the table” was well known – the governor’s salary was a joke and quite insufficient to run the state or even live day to day.
Next came Nixon. The Watergate burglary was a “dirty tricks” operation gone wrong. The burglary was based on the concern that the Democrat Party had been infiltrated by communists and socialists, and that their presidential run was tainted accordingly. Today, the Democrat leadership doesn’t even bother to hide the socialist and communist foundation of their Party. (Bernie Sanders has carved out a sizeable group of Democrats who openly avow socialism to replace the American Democratic Republic.) Nixon made the mistake of underestimating the importance of the burglary and the hostility of the press. He resigned his office.
In a little over 6 months, we will once again go to the polls to elect federal representatives and senators. The Democrats and far too many Republican establishment leaders are hoping that the Democrats take over the Congress so that Trump’s populist agenda can be stopped by bogus impeachment attempts, shutting down any investigation of the FBI/DOJ “insurance policy” activity, or simply stonewalling President for the rest of his term. The situation here is beyond serious for the country. It is dire. America’s opposition both within and without have the EU model of global socialism as its preferred form of government. Hopefully, the American citizenry has another idea, reinvigorating the meaning of the American ideal.
