WAKE UP- WE ARE IN A POWER STRUGGLE

Second amendment repeal, end Electoral College, citizenship question on census form, no voter I.D., open borders, unlimited immigration, baseless charges of Republican collusion with Russians during the election, corruption in the FBI and Department of Justice, politicization of the civil service, globalization of the economy, failure to adequately fund the military, appalling failure of the FBI and local law enforcement to protect our schools and the main stream media to factually expose corruption and abuse of power wherever it is found.

The leftist, socialist, democrats, big government ideologues  and liberals are on one side. The rest of us are on the other and we are not as skilled as our opponents. Our opponents keep us off guard by constantly shifting areas of their attacks. The truth is that none of these issues is critical to our opposition. Saul Alinsky, the guru of Obama and Clinton, is right. The issue doesn’t matter. The issues are all part of the struggle for power. The left will used any or all of these issues to destroy their opposition, which is us.

While we are trying to fix, solve or improve all the issues that affect our lives, the opponents are focused on seizing power. History paints a clear picture. Once the left wins, it must use coercive measures to control society. There is no way bloodless way back. If you don’t want to look back a hundred years or more, just look at Cuba or Venezuela or California. Wake up this is serious and time is running out. Do not let the leftist elites follow their ideology and destroy the country for the rest of us.

TEST OF THE PRESIDENT’S PATIENCE.

I am both pleased and dismayed to see President Trump display so much patience for his appointed Attorney-General. Here is the first Senator to publicly endorse candidate Trump. What’s he done since then besides concealing he intended to recluse himself from nearly everything involving the Russians, Trump’s campaign, the illegal activities of the Clinton’s and the appointment of a Special Consul who should have been disqualified by the law due to his longstanding close relationships with persons involved with the areas under investigation?  Senator Sessions did not have the candor, honesty or courage to tell President Trump about his plans for recusing himself because he wanted to be the Attorney-General no matter what the impact would be on the new President. As a result he has done more damage to the Trump Presidency than any other person, including all the deep state people who have burrowed deep into the Federal bureaucracy and support the Obama cadres now running the Justice Department and other sensitive parts of the Government.

What is wrong with Attorney-General Sessions? Are his former colleagues right when they say he is incompetent and just doesn’t know how to take control and manage a large department like DOJ.

It’s bad enough  he doesn’t lead the charge to re-establish the ‘rule of law’, he’s also deliberately delaying a proper investigation of serious corruption and abuse of federal law and procedures such as applying for warrants from the FISA Court. The recused AG is now pretending to investigate several critical issues but the only result will be a review of the DOJ’s Inspector-General’s report by a U.S. Attorney from Utah. Under Jeff Sessions, the DOJ looks like it did under the Obama reigns of AGs Lynch and Holder. At least we knew what side they were on.

This is not an investigation. It is a whitewash. Mr.President, the American people don’t have your patience. It is past time to take control of the Justice Department under new leadership.

The Professor: Russia and Elections

A fictional discourse between a learned political science professor and his students.

I stress in my seminars that the modern political scientist or journalist must know how to think outside the box, have a solid understanding of history and, above all, a strong dose of logic and common sense. It seems there are very few who can check these three boxes. Look at the fervor over the alleged collusion of the Trump campaign with the Russians. According to the Progressive/Socialists, often referred to as Democrats, President Trump only won the national election because of Russian meddling in the election.

What the Progressive followers of Obama and Clinton don’t want to acknowledge and the Congressional Republicans are too timid and self-serving to say, is that the Russians have always meddled in elections, especially in the era of the Comintern organization of the Lenin/Stalin period. But the Russians have never tried to influence an election in favor of a capitalistic nationalist party. They have spent billions on hundreds of foreign political campaigns and elections to further the spread of communism and socialism.

Why would they try to help Trump when the Obama administration systematically weakened America’s military and economic power? Obama pulled missile defense systems out of eastern Europe, curtailed the American development of an ICBM defense, allowed Russia to put a strong military presence in the Middle East, including a naval base in the Mediterranean, refused Ukrainian requests for weapons to combat the Russian takeover of the Crimea and large parts of Ukraine and crippled the development and export of American oil and natural gas.

Candidate Trump made no secret of the fact, that he would rebuild America’s military and economic power. Hillary Clinton pledged to continue President Obama’s policies. The Russians are not dumb when it comes to advancing their national interests. Yes, the Russians can be counted on to meddle in elections in favor of their national interests. Candidate Trump’s campaign promises were and are not in Russia’s national interests. The only campaign and administration that have colluded with the Russians is that of the progressive regime of Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Today’s democratic/progressive messages are tied to the Alinsky strategy of using any and all issues to attack and destroy the opposition. Progressives may take any side of any issue as long as it furthers the progressive cause. Most of the national media is fully supporting progressive policies. Don’t look for truth or logic  in progressive messaging. They are not important. Sizing power is.

The Professor: What Happened to the Rule of Law?

A fictional discourse between a learned political science professor and his students.

“I can’t believe it is mid-July. The older I get, the faster time flies by. Something is wrong with the physics of time measurement. As I get wiser with age and think I’ve more to write, time reminds me, ‘No, you must be even more selective.’

“Okay. I got it. But the ‘rule of law’ is one of our most important principles and I must make a few comments for my students — past, present, and future. When I watch the “news” or follow events online, I’m struck by the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ nature of the political discourse. It seems everything must be investigated by everyone. We used to investigate crimes. Now we have the pinnacle of our law enforcement system, a special consul, investigating everything, searching for a crime that has not been identified. Without a broadly accepted and understood crime, how can the massive authorities and resources of a special consul be authorized?

“Or perhaps a more relevant question might be how can it not be authorized when clear rules and laws have been repeatedly broken and massive evidence has been collected and ignored? I think the only honorable course for Mr. Mueller, our special consul, to take is to immediately describe the crime and continue his work or state there is no crime to investigate and go back to history’s dustbin. Or he could pick up the investigation of the Clintons’ action in transferring a significant portion of American uranium to Russia through a Canadian company with payment reportedly being paid to the Clinton Foundation via grants and six-figure payments for speeches made by our former president while his wife was the secretary of state allegedly processing these actions through her private email server. This activity certainly is beyond a charge of collusion and closer to graft and corruption. What about the IRS scandal, Benghazi, the fast and furious arms deal involving the border patrol and secret meetings between the attorney general and a former president in a period when his wife’s actions were a ‘matter’ of interest to the FBI?

“We have moved from a place where nothing was investigated to where serious investigations are underway without a crime being defined. When the ‘rule of law’ is corrupted, we are on a very dangerous path to a place where the law does not apply to everyone but can be used to attack political figures and organizations. Both the progressives and the Republicans share the blame for this, one for being too aggressive and the other of being too timid.”

The Professor: Where is the Attorney-General?

The following is a fictional account of the written and oral communications between a political science professor and the students of an honors seminar in an East Coast liberal arts college.

Here is another piece I just wrote that will be used in the Fall semester which I hope several of you will attend. Sometimes the crucial part of a problem is so close to the center that it is overlooked. I think today that the strange absence of Attorney-General Jeff Sessions is a perfect example.

It would be hard to find a better choice than Senator Jeff Sessions for this important post. The AG’s role in any administration is to oversee the functioning of the nation’s law enforcement forces and to provide advice, counsel and protection to the office of the President. It is that last responsibility that is clearly lacking. Mr. Sessions early in his confirmation process recused himself from any involvement in the investigation of President Elect Trump or candidate Trump and collusion with the Russians. This was a serious mistake.

Months later, no evidence has been discovered in any of several investigations that there was any Republican collusion with the Russians. During all that time Attorney-General Sessions has been nearly invisible. Now through a process worthy of a fiction novel, a special consul has been appointed by Mr. Session’s deputy, Mr. Rosenstein. A special counsel that should have been rejected due to his long-standing and close personal and professional relationship with fired FBI Director, James Comey. Mr. Mueller, a former Director of the FBI, has been hiring a steady stream of legal professionals with strong ties, financial and political, to Hillary Clinton or the Clinton Foundation. Does anyone think a fair and impartial investigation will be conducted by this group?

The special consul’s or independent consul’s investigation could go on for more than a few years. Remember no crime has been identified. There is nothing except Progressive Party theories and charges. This totally political investigation is impacting the President’s ability to implement his policies and fulfilling his campaign promises. The promises that the people voted for.

This cannot continue. The Attorney General must step up and take charge or resign and enable President Trump to appoint another AG that will end this dangerous nonsense by firing Mueller and Rosenstein. No crime, no investigation. Let the President focus on America’s recovery.

The Professor: Special Counsel is a Danger

The following is a fictional account of the written and oral communications between a political science professor and the students of an honors seminar in an East Coast liberal arts college.

Before you know it, we’ll be back in class for the Fall Semester. My summer course in Presidential Politics is going well. At least that is what my keepers say.  It keeps me active and thinking how to engage your generation which I have trouble defining. When I’m feeling uncharitable, I want to define you as the ‘over educated cupcake generation.’ Perhaps very unfair but what challenge or hardship has defined you?

Maybe it will be the raging political war between the pragmatic conservatives and the socialists who are still seeking to transform America via the redistribution of wealth and a centralized government, run by a progressive elite. Class warfare by another name. The battle is real. The Democratic party, now run by very left-wing progressives, is seeking to destroy the Trump Administration and establish a system of one-party rule.

Having lost an election, the Progressives are now seeking to use tactics of full-scale resistance. Perhaps the most dangerous tactic is the use of a special counsel to investigate the imagined crime of collusion between the Trump Administration and the Russians.

First to set the battlefield. After seven months of investigations, Congressional and FBI investigations have not found any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign or Administration and the Russians. So, we have now appointed a Special Counsel to investigate a crime no one can find. The progressives know that doesn’t matter. With enough resources and time, the Special Counsel will find some obscure matter unrelated to collusion with the Russians and try to use it to destroy the Trump Administration. Strong statement. Yes. Let’s drill down a little further.

Former FBI Director, James Comey, is not a role model for the storied FBI. He couldn’t stand up to pressure from Loretta Lynch regarding the so-called FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Looking for real crimes. That’s is where to look. Back to the story. Comey leaks documents covering his meetings with President Trump to a friend who then makes the government documents available to the New York Times. He does this illegal act so that a special counsel will be appointed and that is exactly what happened.

Now the plot thickens. Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, appoints Robert Mueller, a former Director of the FBI and a long-time friend and colleague of James Comey as the Special Counsel. Their close relationship over several years should have disqualified Mr. Mueller from the Special Counsel position. The law is clear and explicit on this point.

Mr. Mueller immediately hires several lawyers with close ties to the Clintons and their foundation and according to press reports is widening his search for a crime. The history of the special or independent counsel shows you can find or manufacture some questionable actions on anybody if you look long enough with the broad powers granted to the special counsel.

The intent of this political tactic by the progressives is to destroy the Trump Presidency and to proceed with their transformation of America. How can you have a civil discourse with political opposition whose main mission is to destroy the Republican opposition by any means possible?

The only effective response is to attack by exposing Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s unlawful appointment of Mr. Mueller. Continue by firing both Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller and follow-up by appointing another Special Counsel to investigate the Clintons, Loretta Lynch and the IRS. Let’s see what happens then. Maybe the Republican Congressional leadership will show some backbone.

The Professor and The Firing of the FBI Director

 

The following is a fictional account of the dialogue between a political science professor and the students of an honors seminar in an east coast liberal arts college.

********

The Professor, reluctantly set his cup of strong dark roast coffee on the table, waiting for his students to take their accustomed places at the conference table. When the last student settled at the table, he said, “Every-once-in-a-while the normal course of the nation gets shaken by an event. Yesterday, the President fired Mr. Comey, the FBI Director. The left and ruling wing of the Democratic Party is in an uproar, demanding the appointment of a Special Counsel, Special Committee, or an Independent Counsel. Without exception, leaders of the Progressive Party, that has captured the traditional Democratic Party, have called for the resignation or dismissal of Director Comey. Hillary Clinton, the presidential standard-bearer of the party, has blamed Director Comey for her defeat.

“The conspiracy witches are out in full force stating President Trump obviously fired Comey because his investigation of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians was getting too close. Why else would the President fire the FBI Director? Most of those who automatically chant ‘conspiracy is the answer’ have never held a position outside of a legislature or media organization and do not understand how organizations with a chain of command work.

“The timing of the firing was dictated by findings of the Executive’s Attorney-General’s office. You will remember in what I believe was an ill-advised action, the Attorney-General recused himself from all aspects of the ‘Russian Investigation.’ It would have been very bad optics now for him to have taken the lead in recommending the President fire Director Comey.

“In nearly all cases the leader of an Executive Department or Agency deals with the world outside his or her organization. The number two ranking person or deputy concentrates on the internal workings of the organization. Within the Attorney-General’s Office, the Attorney-General himself through his declaration of recusal took himself out of a direct role in the FBI’s investigations of anything that may have a Russian connection to the Trump campaign or Administration. The Deputy Attorney-General is the normal command chain contact with the FBI Director. In this case, the Deputy AG had been on the job only a few weeks after being confirmed by a vote of 96 to 4 in the Senate. The Deputy AG had been appointed to his previous position as the federal prosecutor for Maryland by President Obama. He is a true professional with broad bi-partisan support.

“It was his decision, after examining Director Comey’s actions over the last year, to recommend to the AG that Comey be replaced so that the FBI could repair its damaged reputation. The AG forwarded his Deputy’s recommendation, with approval, to President Trump. I believe this is the primary reason for the timing of the firing. There is no conspiracy as much as the entire Progressive Party is pretending there is. Furthermore, it is usual for there to be a criminal charge prior to the appointment of an Independent or Special Counsel. The entire Russian/Trump investigation is being conducted as a counter-intelligence matter. This investigation will not be effected by the removal of Director Comey. Thus far there has been no evidence uncovered to support the Progressive Party’s political agenda.”
