In this strange upside down and inside out world we find ourselves in, it looks like the Dep of Justice is actually the protector of the swamp. Call it a guardian or caretaker.
Ten years ago I might have mockingly wrote that as a joke. Now I only wish it were a joke. Can this please be a joke or an SNL skit that I’ve seen just before dozing off and having this nightmare? The irony of that is just about as wacky as the very idea. But we don’t get to write the script, we are living it out.
With all the latest revelations about texts, then missing texts, refusals to provide documents to Congress, a former AG meeting with Clinton on a tarmac, to an FBI Director who demanded an independent counsel after being fired, it seems anything is possible. And that is just the point, nothing is normal. My worst fears are real, it is all true.
On a daily basis more comes out. If you thought Deep State was a conspiracy theory, you no longer have the liberty to laugh it off or pretend it is not. There is a conspiracy.
Offended? I suppose so. But if you spent all your time being outraged you would wear yourself out before the whole story comes out. Another issue is the selectivity of news reporting about any of it. They don’t want to. It’s like media is on strike refusing to report real news, instead just making up a convenient story line to suit their fancy.
So I, like so many of us, go from one outrage to the next. I’m sick of the perpetual outrage, sick of being offended to my inner being. I’m sick of the moral outrage when wrong is right and right is wrong. The nightmare is real and it doesn’t seem to be coming to an end. It develops new plots and turns daily.
If what has been happening was supposed to wake you up, well, once you are awake then what can you do? The only people who are not outraged about any of these actions are the left. Their silence about it is chilling.
At the heart of the Deep State is its defense. (and at the heart of the swamp is its ecological, biological system)
The offensives continue on common sense and reasoning. Is it a dumbing down of America or just the effects of politicizing everything? Either way, they don’t want you to know.
At the height of this upside down chicanery, the real truth is crystallizing about the Deep State and those who support it, ie, the media, the left and all areas of the Swamp. When faced with the power and influence of Deep State, we see who is willing to protect it. It is now clear the supreme guardian of the Deep State is no less than the DOJ itself.
I’ve long associated Deep State with bureaucracy and especially the state Department but its tentacles are far wider than that. Now we find out that the protector and apologists for it is the Department of Justice. Who tasked them with that duty and responsibility above all else — like keeping America safe and preserving justice and rule of law — to defend Deep State? Of course that is by default the preservation of the Swamp.
So the effects we are seeing of the corruption that went on is bad enough. Indeed that even penetrated the DOJ as well. But when it came down to exposing it, the DOJ stepped right in to preserve and protect the Deep State Swamp — to cover their butts.
Recently we saw how the Menedez corruption trial ended, in a hung jury. This reinforced the claim that it is very tough to get a conviction on corruption and bribery. Maybe William Jefferson’s freezer of cash would not be a problem now? In fact, that case is now under reconsideration. Jefferson will be released after a judge revised the charges.
The New Orleans Advocate – 10/5/17
The decision marked the latest upending of a political corruption conviction since the high court set tighter limits on what qualifies as an illegal quid pro quo in politics.
In a unanimous 2016 decision tossing out the conviction of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that an official act “must involve a formal exercise of governmental power.”
Roberts added that “setting up a meeting, talking to another official or organizing an event — without more — does not fit that definition of ‘official act.’ “
It was recently announced they will not seek a new trial against Menendez.
“DOJ” now stands for Dep of Obstructing Justice. Like it or not, that’s what we have. The old line is that its not the crime but the coverup. The DOJ is complicit in the corruption and in the cover up. But it was supposed to be sacred (neutral) ground that only cared about one thing, justice.
That all changed under Obama. It became the seat of the corruption — the pinnacle. Then it morphed into its defender of record as the news leaked out. Democrats in Congress want to make sure that the corrupt and politicized DOJ stays in place.
There goes your and my nightmare in a loop cycle.
In fact, they tried to make it impossible for Trump and his administration to fire anyone. If you have the president under investigation, it turns out that only makes you immune from firing. But make no mistake who the real guardian-in-chief for Deep State has been.
Add the failures of FBI to do its job in terrorism or high profile investigations. And they wonder why we are losing confidence in the DOJ itself? It is at the heart of the Swamp.
