The Patriot’s Editorial: Is The ‘Drain The Swamp’ Campaign Working?

Much has been said and written about ‘Making America Great Again’ and ‘Draining The Swamp’! Like many of you, I assumed President Trump’s initiative would be limited to eliminating over-reach regulations, passing new laws and changing mindsets. Little did anyone realize the impact those efforts would have peripherally after just one year. The unforeseen consequences we are beginning to witness are surprising a lot of people.

On a near weekly basis, both House and Senate Congressional members are announcing their intent ‘not’ to run for office at the end of their terms or simply announce their immediate retirement. The #MeToo crowd took its toll on members of Congress in edition to wreaking havoc on Hollywood and the media by exposing various levels of sexual misbehavior. But they weren’t limited to just Washington, DC. All across the country, state and local legislators are being exposed for their perversive behavior. I suspect more of them will be called out in the weeks and months ahead. As they say: “stay tuned”!

Additionally, we are seeing much more subtle departure announcements, but the explanations and reasons given are somewhere between obscure to reasonably plausible. Some simply say they are retiring to return to civilian life, others say they have other pursuits, while others just say they are not going to run for re-election. Nevertheless, members of both parties are bailing out and leaving their post. As I watch this unfold, it is apparent some of the longtime old guard (swampers) are leaving jobs they turned into decades long political careers. They are draining the swamp themselves!

No one can predict the future and that couldn’t be more true when it comes to ‘Draining The Swamp’ and the affects it will have. I seriously doubt even President Trump saw this coming. I continue to ask myself why those longstanding members of Congress have decided to retire at this point in time, especially when it looked like they would die in their jobs. Is it the pressure to clean up their personal behavior, because they may finally be held to a higher standard by their constituents or they just got tired and are simply quitting. Although a curious conundrum, the fact it is happening can’t be bad for the American people. Just wondering who will be next!

Manchin: So, it Looks Like the Tax Bill I Voted Against Will — Um — Help A Lot of West Virginians

Read

Of course it will, Joe.  More than 80 percent of Americans will get a tax cut next year under the new law, with nearly as many taxpayers enjoying relief through at least 2026 (and very likely beyond).  Of the plan’s tiny handful of ‘losers’ (less than five percent), most are high-income earners living in high-tax states who itemize their deductions — as opposed to taking the now-doubled standard deduction, as 70 percent of filers currently do (a number that will grow).  It…doesn’t sound like many West Virginians fit that profile.  Manchin knew all of this, of course, but he voted with Chuck Schumer anyway, just as he’s refused to help Republican Senators confirm a number of highly qualified judges nominated by President Trump.  Confronted with his tax reform vote on local radio, Manchin struggled to defend his decision:

Big List of 168 Trump accomplishments in 337 days

Read

With mainstream media and establishment politicians stacked against him from the moment he announced his run for the presidency, Donald J. Trump has been in an ongoing pitched battle to communicate his plans – and his eventual successes – to Americans. Through public rallies and social media, he has managed to bypass the traditional information gatekeepers and has spoken directly to the people.  Yet, Americans are subjected to a relentless drumbeat from the Democratic Party, amplified by virtually the entire establishment press, that Trump is not only undisciplined, unfit for office and possibly racist, but that embarrassingly little has been accomplished by the Trump administration.

Exclusive: Prominent lawyer sought donor cash for two Trump accusers

Exclusive: Prominent lawyer sought donor cash for two Trump accusers

Read

A well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 presidential race, according to documents and interviews.

California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill.

Bryant: Trump ‘Prime Example of Entrepreneurship Whether You’re White or Black’

Read

 

While Donald Trump campaigned in Miami, Florida late Friday, Sean Hannity spoke with two African-American preachers who have voiced their support for the Republican presidential nominee.

“A prime example for young entrepreneurs white or black is Donald Trump,” Rev. C.L. Bryant said on Hannity.

“When Donald Trump said ‘what do you have to lose’, it rang a bell in the black community,” Rev. Darrell Scott said, “It caused [them to] become introspective and contemplative…and say “you know, that guy is right.”

“When they examine…what he has said, [they say] you’re right, what do we have to lose?”

FBI agents had secret ‘insurance policy’ in case Trump won

Read

Just one month into the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation – and only weeks after the FBI had been given a copy of the anti-Trump dossier in the summer of 2016 – one of the FBI’s top Russian counterintelligence experts discussed an “insurance policy” in the event that then-presidential candidate Donald Trump won election to the White House.  After months of bashing Trump in texts and stating that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton “just has to win,” Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page exchanged a cryptic text concerning a so-called “insurance policy” against a possible Trump win.  On Aug. 15, 2016, Strzok wrote: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s] office that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40 …”

Former CIA Director Admits “Thoughtful” Intelligence Operation Against Candidate Trump, Now Regrets…

Read

In an otherwise well-buried interview between former interim CIA Director Mike Morell, (the temp director following Petraeus ouster used during initial Benghazi cover), there’s an admission by Morell about the politicized Deep State Intelligence leadership targeting candidate Donald Trump.

What this interview tells CTH is that the Intelligence Community, writ large, is on the precipice of massive institutional change -perhaps high level firings of remaining mid level operators and management- and those who participated in the historic politicization are now attempting to shape an explanation.

Jim Carrey Comes Unglued, Demands Republicans Be “Removed” so Democracy Can Live

Read

Actor Jim Carrey has had some issues staying on the right side of the sanity line for some time now, but what he just tweeted out against President Donald Trump and the Republican Party is bizarre even by his own disturbed standards.

On Wednesday, Carrey tweeted out a drawing of a lawmaker who appears to represent Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, with the following proclamation:

“The GOP and WH have become sinister conclaves of souless traitors, liars and thieves – a gangrene we must remove so democracy can live,” adding the hashtag “#killthebill”

Rogue UN Official Reveals Obama Behind ‘Historic Coup’ To Forcibly Remove Trump From Office RIGHT NOW

Read

Obama has had an extremely difficult time relinquishing the power he was held as president of the Untied States, as he’s spent every waking moment in recent months obsessing on ways to take out President Trump with his “resistance movement.” Despite now being a civilian, Obama has been holding diplomatic meetings with world leaders, which is a direct violation of the Logan Act and a very serious federal crime. As Obama continues to try to assert his power over President Trump, now a former United Nations ambassador is going rogue, revealing that Obama is now actively engaging in the first coup d’état in Amercican History against a sitting president.

CNN Pushes Fake News on WikiLeaks, Ignores Obama-Clinton-Russia Collusion on Dossier

Read

RUSH: Oh, my. This is too good! “Email Reveals Effort to Give Trump Campaign WikiLeaks Documents.” It’s a “CNN exclusive.” CNN thinks they’re really on to something here. You know, Donald Trump Jr. wants to claim privilege, not have to tell investigators what he talked to his dad about after he met with the honeypot from Russia, that phony meeting. “CNN Exclusive: Email Reveals Effort to Give Trump Campaign WikiLeaks Documents.” So what? There’s no crime in the campaign at all!

Conservatives See Donald Trump Reviving Constitutional Government

Read

America may soon have a judiciary, Congress, and administration that are more aligned with constitutional principles than they have been in decades, allowing government officials, legal scholars, and lawyers to plan ahead for government under a reinvigorated Constitution.
The United States has not had unified conservative government since the 1920s. In 1929, moderate Republican Herbert Hoover became president, the stock market crashed mere months later, and Hoover’s moderate policies shoved the heavily leveraged American economy further underwater and held it there, inaugurating the Great Depression.

Congress has handed Trump a historic presidential victory

Read

President Donald Trump should give special thanks to two U.S. Senators this Thanksgiving weekend. One is still serving in the Senate, the other recently retired. One is a Republican. The other a Democrat. And what should President Trump be thanking them for? Quite simply they have handed him one of the biggest victories any president could claim in the past 45 years.

The FBI and the DOJ are having some problems with the Trump dossier

Read

When word of the Trump dossier first started making the rounds, one of the myths was that 17 intelligence agencies had looked it over and gave it credibility. That was a lie to start with. Only three gave it a slight chance of it being true. In this latest change to the story, the FBI and DOJ have admitted that they cannot validate it at all. Zip. Zero. Nada. The mainstream media and the Democrats will be without a case. Sorry about that.

AG Sessions Refuses to Prosecute Hillary, Comey or Mueller

President Donald Trump has been asking some very pointed questions in the last few days regarding why his own attorney general is not pursuing the Uranium One investigation into Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration for its blatant mishandling of America’s reserve of nuclear materials when it agreed to the sale of 20% of the nation’s uranium to a Russian company, Rosatom, despite its foreknowledge that there was massive corruption and criminal activity inside the corporation.

The Best Speech by President Trump So Far

Donald Trump gave the best speech of his Presidency to the United Nation. He was bold and American — giving real clarity to what he meant by an “America First” speech. He did not mince words and called out rogue nations. But he also noted that he had no intention of imposing the American system on other nations. His speech was a speech on what he sees as realism and getting away from an idealized American foreign policy. His was a speech that will resonate beyond his base.
