I know I’ve been scarce over the last couple days. Sorry about that. Fortunately, it wasn’t because of Lupus. I’ve been spending my time shoveling snow and printing T-shirts. But it has cut into my time here at PatriotRetort.com. So if you kept coming by yesterday waiting for me to post something else, I apologize for disappointing you.
I’ve been watching the story unfold regarding the corruption within the DOJ and FBI. And I have to tell you, it absolutely infuriates me.
This is the problem when the Federal Government becomes choked with unelected bureaucrats with zero accountability to the American people.
But this is precisely what many on the Right were warning against during Obama’s eight years in office.
Winning elections is just too hit and miss for the Left. So instead, Obama focused on embedding his partisans throughout the government – from the Department of Energy to the State Department to the Department of Education, and even within Justice.
For Pete’s sake. Look no further than the completely unaccountable Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. That money-sucking pile of crap is nothing more than a Federally-funded branch of Organizing for America.
Our system of government was established in such a way to ensure that the branch of government with the most power is the branch most closely tied to the people.
But clearly that is no longer the case.
The most powerful branch of the Federal Government is now the unelected bureaucratic state.
When the House of Representatives issues subpoenas to the FBI that are summarily ignored, it isn’t just an irritation or inconvenience.
It is in defiance of the Constitutional Separation of Powers and the will of the people.
And when partisan agents and lawyers within Justice believe it is up to them to “save” the country from the voters electing Donald Trump as President, this is no small thing.
We’re not a banana republic.
And the unelected bureaucratic state cannot nullify an election just because they preferred the other candidate.
And actively seeking a strategy – or “insurance policy” – to bypass free and fair elections is nothing short of a coup.
I find it unfathomable that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are still employed.
If you defy the American people and seek to undermine a duly elected President, you shouldn’t get demoted.
At the very least, you should be marched out the door – if not frog-marched right into prison.
But the fact is, none of this is at all surprising to me.
And it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who lived through the eight years of Obama’s presidency.
Obama weaponized the Federal Government. And his Administration saw to it that if elections didn’t go the way they wanted, the unelected bureaucratic state would just plow forward as if elections don’t have consequences.
Because elections don’t have consequences when you put all the power into the hands of unelected bureaucrats.
That’s why, despite President Trump announcing that the US would move the American Embassy to Jerusalem, the State Department is simply refusing to comply.
We knew long before the 2016 election that the Justice Department was hopelessly politicized by Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.
But now we’re beginning to see just how deep their partisan tentacles reached.
This Inspector General investigation is pulling back the curtain on the abuses of the unelected bureaucratic state within the Justice Department.
And it isn’t pretty.
Now, you want the irony? This Inspector General investigation began because the FBI re-opened the Clinton email case in the final weeks before the election.
From the Daily Caller:
The Strzok texts, which he exchanged with Lisa Page, his mistress and an FBI lawyer, were discovered as part of the inspector general’s investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.
Ironically, Democrats pushed for the investigation. Many Clinton supporters blamed then-FBI Director James Comey’s actions during that investigation for Clinton’s election loss.
“This is highly encouraging and to be expected given Director Comey’s drastic deviation from Justice Department protocol,” Clinton campaign communications director Brian Fallon said back in January. “A probe of this sort, however long it takes to conduct, is utterly necessary in order to take the first step to restore the FBI’s reputation as a non-partisan institution.
If only Brian Fallon realized that the partisan problem at the FBI and DOJ was looking to destroy Donald Trump.
I’m guessing he never would have endorsed this investigation.
Admit it. That’s all kinds of Schadenfreude, isn’t it?
Had Hillary Clinton won the election, we never would have known about this pervasive and insidious corruption.
And this is the one thing Barack Obama and his embedded partisans never planned for.
But that’s what happens when you dismiss the vital role of the American people in a system of self-government.
In their arrogance, they never expected to be exposed.
And they were wrong.
So, as usual, they pushed too hard and too far. And now they’re the ones caught in the net.
If you haven’t been reading the excellent commentary on this unfolding story over at The Conservative Treehouse, you really should.
Today’s post by sundance An Investigative Pattern Emerges… is well worth the time.
