Deep State Exposed: Investigation

Is the U.S. government under the control of a shadowy group of insiders, unseen by the public and unaccountable to voters? A newly published report suggests the answer is “yes.” But lay aside the elaborate conspiracy theories about Russian infiltration. This insidious threat is far more mundane, stemming from bureaucrats who have hijacked the regulatory process to evade accountability for their actions. It’s time for Congress and President Trump to push back against federal agency rule-makers who are overstepping their authority.

Regulations must be obeyed only by non-Democrats.

Part of the problem is related to Federal government overreach. The Federal government has its hands in too many pies, things it was never intended to do. If the proper “officers of the United States” actually carried out their job in this regard, there wouldn't be enough hours in the day to do everything. Maybe this was designed into the Constitution figuring that one "officer" could only get into so much mischief. Or perhaps it is just a fortuitous happenstance. In addition, the Congress is no longer doing its job to craft clear laws, party because it would require a lot of work, party to avoid contentious debate over such details, partly to introduce deliberate vagueness allowing for exactly such Deep State games and avoidance of responsibility. Thus we get laws like BOCare that no one knew what was in it before it they voted on it. Then the regulators went to work and crafted a system that was horribly flawed and fell apart under its own weight. Allowing Deep State regulators to function like this is running government in the dark of the night with the opportunity for all sorts of shenanigans instead of in the light of accountable day.

Rush Limbaugh has been talking about this for months; unelected unaccountable people are running the country. Now that this is out in the open, perhaps it can be disinfected.

The EPA is the biggest offender in my opinion, but they’re all equally as bad. These people are practicing job security, so they sit around all day and think up ways to regulate a piddling stream or puddle so some landowner can’t build on his property. It’s also.because they’ve regulated everything else so they turn to the little stuff. You’ve all read about these goings on! Besides, it’s the intent of liberals to see who they can annoy when they wake up in the morning.

Allowing bureaucrats to implement laws and regulations is how politicians get thing done through the ''back door.'' They can claim innocence, ignorance and avoid the heat from unpopular, and yes, unconstitutional laws. We elect politicians to legislate, not pass the buck to anonymous bureaucrats! Nothing should become law or regulation that affects the citizens, unless passed in legislation, in the sunshine!

One of the top priorities of Trump was that his appointees should review and clean out the unnecessary regulations that Obama put into place during his 8 years. My guess is that the(IIRC) Interior secretary did his job too well, and that is why he was pushed into a corner to resign. There is a deep river of rot still active, and they are going to fight hammer and tong to keep Trump from being reelected.

If they didn't follow the SOP for implementing the rules in an open and traceable manner (i.e. using private e-mails, phones, texts, WhatsApp) then every rule or regulation should be null and void. #8, while politicians love to use this as a means to do what they don't want to do, they are the oversight, and thus should be accountable regardless.

When President Bill Clinton, over 20 years ago, was probed by a special investigator, and 11 possible grounds for impeachment were found, including perjury, witness tampering and obstruction of justice, Democrats didn’t defend their party’s President the way Republicans defend Trump today. No, Democrats were far more extreme. What makes the rhetorical record so glaringly hypocritical is that in Donald Trump’s case, unlike Clinton’s, the investigator found no evidence of presidential crimes.

‘These are prosperous times in America.” If that sounds like pro-Trump propaganda, that’s because it’s rarely uttered by anyone who isn’t already a supporter of the current president. But that’s how National Public Radio, to its credit, began a story about the incredible jobs boom underway right now in a segment called “America Is In Full Employment, So Why Aren’t We Celebrating?” “Why doesn’t today’s full employment come with effervescence?” reporters Pallavi Gogoi and Scott Horsley ask.

The threat to the free world if we get seduced into fully equipping our infrastructures with cheap Chinese advanced communications technology is of the gravest nature. “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war,” Chinese general and military strategist Sun Tzu declared in The Art of War, some 500 years before Christ. Using 21st-century terminology last week in London, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described much the same thing, warning that Beijing is seeking “to divide Western alliances through bits and bytes, not bullets and bombs.”

The Unirule Institute of Economics in Beijing, called “China’s most prominent free-market think tank” by Bloomberg News, is a target of harassment from the Chinese government. Its economists are considered dissidents by President Xi Jinping’s regime. The story reminds us of the treatment the Obama WhiteHouse gave to Tea Party groups that dared challenge the administration. In today’s China, after a period of liberalization, free-market economists are considered a threat to the ruling authority.

Now that the smoke from the always-dubious Trump-Russia investigation has cleared, the real scandal is finally coming into focus.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) on Tuesday castigated supporters of President Donald Trump by claiming America's problem with ignorance is "pervasive." Omar appeared on the Nation’s "Next Left" podcast with host John Nichols to discuss various issues, including the intelligence of Trump supporters. "So suddenly you’re elected, and you had this teaching moment. It strikes me that, in watching you, you are conscious of teaching moments and of that opportunity to say something that might cause people to think differently about what’s going on," Nichols said. Omar said U.S. voters "have a misconception" about refugees and the process they face getting into the United States.

Classic films now face the wrath of perpetually enraged social justice warriors. Last weekend’s "Watters World" on Fox News Channel analyzed the impact of this politically correct phenomenon. Exhibit A was Mel Brooks’ “Blazing Saddles,” the single funniest motion picture ever committed to celluloid. Jesse Watters’ guest, Cathy Areu, publisher of Catalina Magazine, responded to a clip of the comedy-Western in which Brooks himself portrays a Yiddish speaking American Indian chief. After securing safe passage for a family of black pioneers rolling West in their stagecoach, the feather-headdress-clad Indian bids them, “auf wiedersehen.”

She claims people are telling her to shut down her blame game tour because she is a woman and that nobody wants a male loser to shut his pie hole.

Barack Obama is literally more popular than Jesus among Democrats. Unfortunately, neither the former president nor any of the party’s 23 candidates currently seeking the 2020 nomination know quite what to do with that information. Of course, before any serious endorsement conversation can commence, Obama has to finish his book (between rounds of golf and raising millions for his foundation). The writing has been going more slowly than he’d expected, and according to several people who have spoken with him, the 44th president is feeling competitive with his wife, whose own book, Becoming, was the biggest release of 2018 and is on track to be the best-selling memoir in history.
