Who in reality rules the United states? It’s not Who We have Been Led to Believe

By Jim Campbell

January 16th, 2019

That seems to be the case, if the video below is believed.

In just five more days we will have the answer.

Has President Trump Intentional laid a trap for Washington’s Bureaucrats?

Who runs the United States?

It’s not who you think and they will soon be gone.



Donald Trump was elected president November, 2016 by winning 306 electoral votes.

In doing so he likely destroyed any further political future for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In reality she did it to herself.

Listening to her handlers Hillary and her team failed to realize hot hated she really was by the American voter.

She is known for her loathsome behavior as first lady and a failed secretary of state.

Her word is as meaningless and useless as a used baby diaper.

Thus, she fell prey to echo chamber of smoke and mirrors where no one was apparently in touch with reality.



He pledged to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C., to overturn the system of politics that had left the nation’s capital and major financial and tech centers flourishing but large swaths of the country mired in stagnation and decay.

“What truly matters,” he said in his Inaugural Address, “is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.”

Is it?

By any historical and constitutional standard, “the people” elected Donald Trump and endorsed his program of nation-state populist reform.

Yet over the last few months America has been in the throes of an unprecedented revolt.


Trump promised to drain the swamp above are swamp creatures that must be put away.

Not of the people against the government, that happened last yea, but of the government against the people.

What this says about the state of American democracy, and what it portends for the future, is incredibly disturbing.



 Most videos have an agenda, take this on for what it’s worth.

There is, of course, the case of Michael Flynn.

He made a lot of enemies inside the government during his career, suffice it to say.

And when he exposed himself as vulnerable those enemies pounced. But consider the means: anonymous and possibly illegal leaks of private conversations.

Yes, the conversation in question was with a foreign national.

And no one doubts we spy on ambassadors.

But we aren’t supposed to spy on Americans without probable cause.

And we most certainly are not supposed to disclose the results of our spying in the pages of the Washington Post because it suits a partisan or personal agenda. (Source)

Understanding Why the Deep State Had to Take Down General Michael Flynn

Comment by Jim Campbell

January 16th, 2019

The words, “Duty, Honor, Country,” are taken quite seriously by today’s all volunteer military.

They were taken from General Douglas MacArthur’s  West Point Speech. (Source)


The piece below written by Mr. Frank Hawkins is an opinion piece to which most true Americans would agree.

Flynn was accused of a minor infraction, rather that allowing his president to take the hit, Flynn took it for him. (Source)


Official portrait of Lt. General Michael Flynn as head of the DIA.

Recall that Flynn was dismissed by Obama as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in 2014, thus ending Flynn’s military career. 

Not unusual when a general has no respect for his commander-in-chief.

Let’s not forget, President Trump has done the same thing. (Source)

American Thinker

                     January 16th, 2019

Does the American public really understand what happened to Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn?  

Highlights of the case have been thoroughly exploited by the shallow, left-leaning media as a convenient avenue to attack President Trump. 

 But important elements of the story remain largely buried from public view.

The tragic political demise of this distinguished general who was President Trump’s initial national security adviser, one of the key jobs in the White House, has been well documented

Former FBI director James Comey and the now disgraced upper echelon of the FBI and, subsequently, Special Counsel Robert Mueller maliciously trapped him, resulting in his ultimate prosecution and pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. 

Not only did Flynn lose an important and influential job in the White House, but they also bankrupted him with legal fees; threatened his family; and, worst of all, damaged the good name of a highly decorated military professional who served his country honorably and with distinction as a member of the American Intelligence Community.

The despicable and unethical attack on Flynn immediately after his appointment by Trump was just one element of a shameful Deep State campaign to discredit and destroy the Trump presidency. 

 As Trump’s national security adviser, Flynn had Trump’s ear.  

He was potentially the Deep State’s worst nightmare.  

Flynn knows in detail how the Intelligence Community and the FISA courts operate.  

With a 33-year military career, including heading up the Defense Intelligence Agency, Flynn was an existential threat to outgoing President Obama and his shameless and highly partisan CIA director, John Brennan, who cynically and criminally corrupted the Intelligence Community for political purposes on behalf of Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Brennan is a Muslim convert who tries to sell us that ia a religion of peace.

Complete radioactive bullshit alert below.



Flynn knew how they lied and covered up the disaster that cost four American lives, including an ambassador’s.

Behind the attack-motive was the much bigger State Department and CIA problem with the U.S. Libyan weapons and the flow to Syria.

 The U.S. sending weapons into the hands of al-Qaeda was always the larger risk to the Obama administration. 

 This problem started with Clinton (State) and Panetta (CIA at the time), but now those weapons going to Syria was an even bigger problem. 

 Flynn was not in place at the time (2010 – 2011).

There is yet another major element of Flynn’s fall from grace that, predictably, has been ignored by the politically correct, anti-Trump media.

In 2016, Flynn published his book, “The Field of Fight:” How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies



That’s the last direction of policy that Barack Hussein Obama, Brennan, by his own admission is a converted Muslim, and their pro-Islamic allies wanted as a priority agenda of the new administration.

You will recall that Obama’s well established Muslim sympathies led him to pressure Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak into inviting the Muslim Brotherhood to attend his Cairo speech over Mubarak’s objections. 

Obama later supported Muslim Brotherhood-backed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi until Morsi was overthrown by the Egyptian people with the help of the Egyptian military. 

That’s the same Obama who, in his May 19, 2011 speech, called for Israel to be cut in two by connecting the Gaza strip, the Golan Heights, and the West Bank. (Source)

The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.

The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.


In his final interview as DIA director, Flynn said he felt like a lone voice in thinking that the United States was less safe from the threat of Islamic terrorism in 2014 than it was prior to the 9/11 attacks.

Flynn believed he was pushed into retirement for questioning the Obama administration’s public narrative that al-Qaeda was close to defeat.

Journalist Seymour Hersh wrote that Flynn told him his agency had sent a constant stream of classified warnings about “the dire consequences of toppling Syrian President Bashar Assad.” 

Flynn recounted that his agency was producing intelligence reports indicating that radical Islamists were the main force in the Syrian insurgency and “that Turkey was looking the other way when it came to the growth of the Islamic State inside Syria.” 

Flynn reportedly said the reports “got enormous push back from the Obama administration,” who he felt “did not want to hear the truth.”  

According to former DIA official W. Patrick Lang: “Flynn incurred the wrath of the White House by insisting on telling the truth about Syria … they shoved him out. 

 He wouldn’t shut up.”

In addition to Trump’s appointment of Flynn as national security adviser, Trump had also named Sebastian Gorka as a deputy assistant. 

Gorka washed out of the Trump administration in a few short months after accusations from the Deep State and academia that he was a fringe academic with questionable credentials. 


 It’s no coincidence that Gorka, an internationally prominent and highly respected authority on counter-terrorism, had published a book with a similar theme to Flynn’s: Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War.

Flynn and Gorka represented the first time senior government officials at the White House level were willing and able to enunciate and lead America’s war against radical Islam. 

 The globalists were horrified at the idea of this sort of thinking at the White House level, which some claimed could offend or alienate America’s Muslim allies, particularly Saudi Arabia, which has been a primary funder and enabler of Wahhabism, a fundamentalist and militant sect of Islam.  (Of the 19 9/11 hijackers, 15 were from Saudi Arabia.)

In his book, Flynn is highly critical of past U.S. policy in the Middle East, particularly regarding Iran, a principal supporter of Islamic terrorism.  Flynn believes that the invasion of Iraq was a major error.  

The focus, he believes, should have been on Iran.  

He slams Obama for not supporting the Green Revolution of the Iranian people in 2009, when there was a chance to topple the mullahs from inside the country. 

Under President Trump our tax dollars are doing that now.

 It didn’t happen because, Flynn wrote:

[N]othing of the sort will be undertaken by Obama because this president wants to be remembered as the man who embraced the Islamic Republic, not as the American leader who brought it down. (page 176)

Flynn calls for strengthening America’s relationships with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt. 

 He notes that Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi saved Egypt from the clutches of the Muslim Brotherhood, and both Egypt and Jordan have been at peace with Israel.

He underscores Israel’s importance to America, particularly in terms of intelligence about radical Islam.

Of the many mistakes of the Obama presidency, its open hostility to Israel is one of the most damaging to our national security. 

I find it simply incredible that an American president should believe a strategic alliance with Iran to be more attractive than our traditional embrace of Israel.

“We need Israel if we’re going to defeat the radical Islamists, and above all, the Iranians.”

It’s quite clear why the Islam-loving Obama and Brennan did not want Flynn at the right hand of the new president.  Not only were their crimes likely to be brought public, but also, their primary pro-Islamic thrust in the Middle East would be reversed.

Here’s the core of Flynn’s thinking:

We have heard [Muslims] say, “We love death more than you love life” over and over again and we have heard them chant “death to America.”  


Yet it does not seem that our leaders, and perhaps, most of our people, are sufficiently against the barbarians who act in this way. 

Political correctness forbids us to denounce radicalized Islamists, and our political, opinion and academic elites dismiss out of hand the very idea of waging war against them.  

No wonder we’re losing. 

 They’ve gotten a free ride. (page 157)

What to do?  “We’ve got to get inside the minds of the Jihadis.  

We should have done that a long time ago, because their goal has been clear for nearly half a century.”

Flynn cites the incident of a PLO jihadist who shot to death the Jordanian prime minister on November 28, 1971.

 “As he lay dying, one of his killers bent over and lapped the blood that poured from his wounds.”

Flynn thus asks the obvious question, which still has not been answered by the pro-Islamic forces in America: “Do you want to be ruled by men who eagerly drink the blood of their dying enemies?”

Federal Court Orders Discovery on Clinton Email, Benghazi Scandal: Top Obama-Clinton Officials, Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes to Respond to Judicial Watch Questions Under Oath

Comment by Jim Campbell

January 15, 2019

It has been said, ‘The wheels of Justice turn oh so slowly.’

It’s amazing how quickly they turn when a Judge interested in justice takes on a case.

How is it that Hillary has managed to skate once again and avoid


Judge Royce C. Lamberth


“In a major victory for accountability, Judge Lamberth today authorized Judicial Watch to take discovery on whether the Clinton email system evaded FOIA and whether the Benghazi scandal was one reason for keeping Mrs. Clinton’s email secret,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.



“Today, Judicial Watch issued document requests and other discovery to the State Department about the Clinton email scandal.

Hillary has already testified under oath before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee as well as the House Judiciary Committee.

Did she lie and commit perjury?

Of course, that’s how she has got away with the most heinous of crimes she committed  her entire career of “Public disservice.



Next up, we will begin questioning key witnesses under oath.”

Seven Other Top State Department/Clinton Aides Must also Respond to Judicial Watch Queries

(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch announced today that United States District Judge Royce C. Lamberthruled that discovery can begin in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides will now be deposed under oath. Senior officials — including Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, Jacob Sullivan, and FBI official E.W. Priestap — will now have to answer Judicial Watch’s written questions under oath.

The court rejected the DOJ and State Department’s objections to Judicial Watch’s court-ordered discovery plan.

(The court, in ordering a discovery plan last month, ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”)

Please see the list of those likely to be required to testify below.

FBI interview makes big news — so why is it still secret?

Comment by Jim Campbell

January 15th, 2019

Ordinarily I pay Sean Hannity little mind.

He’s become Fox New’s “Homer,” in that President Trump can do no wrong even when he has done so and those paying attention know it to be true.

This time however he has put one of his monologues into a tightly packaged monologue that is worth watching  as it has become clear that heads on the left are about to roll.



The FBI continues to get away with obstructing justice by maintain that their information is secret.

Secret to whom?

If it’s being reported here as well as a lead in the NY Times it is a secret to no one following the witch hunt and dance of smoke and mirrors.

James Comey, an Obama hold over should have been asked to tender his immediate resignation the day the president was sworn into office.

For what ever reason, I’m guessing, the new administration had too many things on its plate and failed to do so.

Now the President is stuck with more of his haters making their usual crying and moaning sound which in the end will be of no consequence.

James Baker — the general counsel of the FBI during both the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations — sat for two interviews with House investigators last October.

After the sessions — one on Oct. 3, the other Oct. 18 — Republican Rep. Mark Meadows called parts of Baker’s testimony “explosive.”

Two months after Donald Trump fired his original attorney general, the Senate will on Tuesday cross-examine his proposed replacement, William Barr, a Washington stalwart who served in the role under George HW Bush.

The pick has been welcomed by Republicans and even some Trump detractors, who reason that Barr is a known quantity and that Trump might have done much worse, given his extraordinary views on presidential.

Did we expect the president’s critics to say anything else?

But some Democrats, former federal prosecutors and DoJ figures are warning that Barr might not be such a known quantity after all, and that confirming him as attorney general would threaten the work of the special counsel Robert Mueller and the justice department more broadly.

Barr’s nomination has surfaced at an unusually fraught moment in Washington.

Republicans intended to make the interview transcripts public.

The questioning was not conducted in a classified setting, and Baker had FBI and other lawyers with him the whole time.

But the House still had to send the transcripts to the FBI for clearance, just to make sure public release would not reveal any classified or otherwise secret information.



If Republicans hoped for a quick OK from the bureau, they were sorely disappointed. October passed.

Then November. Then December.

And now, half of January.

The FBI still has the transcripts, and there is no word on when the bureau will clear them for release.

The end is near for the FBI as they can no longer keep obstructing justice.

But now, the Baker transcripts are making news, even as they sit on FBI desks.

Two major news stories in the past few days have been based in whole or in part on what Baker told lawmakers.

Some news organizations appear to have read the transcripts, or at least significant portions of them, or had them read to reporters by someone with access.

Suddenly, the Baker transcripts are hot.

The most recent of the stories broke Tuesday.

In a letter to Justice Department prosecutors, Meadows and Rep. Jim Jordan, now ranking minority on the House Judiciary Committee, revealed that Baker is the subject of a criminal leak investigation.

But of course he would be.

He now has a target on his forehead.

Now they have been banned from shopping at Walmart

Comment by Jim Campbell

January 15, 2019

Walmart has never been to choosy about who it lets into their stores.


Said another way, they don’t care at all.

Please see the compilation of Walmart shoppers at the very end of this piece to know that nothing but the truth is spoken here

CHAPPAQUA, NY —Police say a older woman has been banned from a local Walmart after she spent several hours driving an electric shopping cart around the store while drinking wine from a Pringles can.

Police said that officers responded to a suspicious person call at about 9 a.m. Friday at a Walmart in Mohegan Lake, about 18 miles northwest of Chappaqua.


Mohegan Lake police spokesman Jeff Hughes says the woman had reportedly been riding the electric cart for about three hours circling the Beer and Wine aisles, often accompanied by an elderly man in a separate cart.

A store security photo appears to show this man handing off a bottle of what looks to be fortified Chardonnay to a woman drinking from a potato chips can

Hughes says police eventually found the woman browsing spinal support products and told her she could not return to the store.

Police say the woman wasn’t arrested, and her name was not released.

They are asking for the public’s help in identifying the man as they are still pursuing him on accusations of indecent exposure made towards multiple female associates in the Meat department.

Obama Appointed Judge rejects citizenship question for 2020 U.S. census

Comment by Jim Campbell

January 15, 2019

You don’t think elections have consequences?

It was none other than Barack Obama who put this leftist judge on the circuit court.

His ruling will likely be appealed to a higher court and if a proper decision isn’t rendered there it will be headed for the United States Supreme Court.


Kelly Laco

Kelly Laco, a Justice Department spokeswoman, said the administration was “disappointed,” adding that the “government is legally entitled to include a citizenship question on the census, and people in the United States have a legal obligation to answer.”



By Nick Brown and Jonathan Stempe

January 15th, 2019

NEW YORK, Jan 15 (Reuters) – A federal judge on Tuesday invalidated the Trump administration’s addition of a U.S. citizenship question to the 2020 census, the first ruling in a handful of lawsuits that claim the query will hurt immigrants.



U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross concealed his true motives in adding the question last March.

Ross had said the question – which has not appeared on the decennial census since 1950 – was necessary to enforce federal laws protecting eligible voters.



Furman’s decision will almost certainly be appealed, and could wind up before the Supreme Court this year.

The plaintiffs – 18 U.S. states, 15 cities and various civil rights groups – said that asking census respondents whether they are U.S. citizens will frighten immigrants and Latinos into abstaining from the count.

That could cost their mostly Democratic-leaning communities representation in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as their share of some $800 billion a year in federal funding.

Pentagon Extends the Military’s Mission to Guard the Mexican Border between the U.S and Mexico

Comment by Jim Campbell

January 15th, 2019

There is absolutely no point in talking about it if the President doesn’t plan to go forward with his plan to build the wall.

In the article below he shows his word is solid on the issue.

ICE would prefer a see through wall so that they can watch what is going on by potential law breakers on the other side. (Source)



Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan approved the extension in response to a request from the Homeland Security Department, the Pentagon said in a statement. There are about 2,350 troops assigned to the border mission.

January 15th, 2019

WASHINGTON, Jan 14 (Reuters) – The U.S. military will extend a mission to support security along the U.S. border with Mexico through Sept. 30, the Pentagon said on Monday.



The deployment had previously been authorized through Jan. 31 by former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

President Donald Trump ordered the deployment in October, shortly before November congressional elections, as a part of an effort to crack down on illegal immigration, as waves of thousands of migrants escaping violence in Central America trekked toward the United States.



Critics, including opposition Democrats in Congress but also some U.S. military veterans, have derided the troop deployment as a political stunt.

A stunt?

This is an all volunteer military, they do and go where their Commander-in-Chief through the Pentagon sends them.

The Pentagon said it was “transitioning its support at the southwestern border from hardening ports of entry to mobile surveillance and detection, as well as concertina wire emplacement between ports of entry.”

Trust that the former whiners in the military who are complaining are Democrats.

It said it would continue to provide aviation support.

The Government Shutdown is Having Little to No Effect on the Average Working American

Comment by Jim Campbell

January 15th, 2019

Thanks to the Trump Administrations pro growth and job creating agenda private sector employees are not having a problem.

In fact, employers are looking for qualified employees. (Source)



If the media didn’t tell us we wouldn’t know.

When was the last time Congress was in session that they didn’t attempt to strip us more of our freedoms as bestowed upon us by our Founding Fathers or raise taxes.

The Media still doesn’t know or care who and where these people are.

But the fact that it doesn’t know proves the degree of relevance they have among the 92% of the American people who want that border secured.

How many people pay any attention to what is put out as factual by the water carriers of the left?


No truer words have ever been written than what is said in the image above.

How  do regular America actually get their news, and what is it that is important to them?

The first thing that comes to mind is border security.

After all, that is the main plank that Donald Trump ran on in 2016.

Only, what the pundits, politicos and pollsters missed from the beginning: Donald Trump did not sell this idea to the people, the people told Donald Trump this is what they want from their president.

This is why border security transcends “traditional politics” and moves into “existential politics” again a thing the political establishment misses altogether.

It is probably the only national news the vast majority of the American people pay attention to, and despite Media reporting that is largely anti-Wall support for the Wall continues to grow, now over 90% of Americans believe illegal immigration to a real problem.


If anything, anti-Wall sentiment by the Media has spurred this pro-Wall sentiment even among people who don’t follow news as you who are reading this do.

Local radio newsrooms have been convinced (or ordered) to believe that 1) negative news about Trump, 2) Trump shutting down the government over the Wall and 3) it’s Trump’s fault the government is what listeners need,not want to hear.

The same is true of daytime television, which is supposed to hold viewers until the Nightly network News comes on.

Ordinarily Americans would give very little thought to the federal government, or its being shut down, except when the go

Government gives us a major league pain.

Tax time every years, only less this year, it seems.

The Democrats retaking the House in 2018 hasn’t really altered things much, inasmuch as their victory was largely by theft, and that theft largely because of the porous border.

One way or the other that will be rectified by 2010 for the Democrats have laid their cards on the table, wanting nothing to do with honest Constitutional governance not an honest, hard-working, flag-loving citizenry.

This is the only politics ordinary Americans care about, so when we hear or read that federal employees may miss a paycheck, or politicians are sweating about getting them back to work, they just don’t care as they have tuned the bullshit out.

In the real America people get laid out, and can’t get back pay, they have to file for unemployment, sometimes even welfare, which gnaws at them.

Does it?

And since the illegals are indirectly associated with Obamacare, and the loss of a couple of million small business jobs that put them on welfare, some for as many as 6 years, lost homes, lost marriages…nah, this shut down doesn’t bother them one bit.

Comment by Jim O’Neill

The president’s instincts are right.

Most Americans will not miss non-essential government functions.

A referendum to end government plunder must happen.

Wasteful government agencies are fighting for relevance but they will lose.

Now is the time to deliver historic change by cutting them down forever.

Since we pay congressional salaries why is it that we allow them to treat us as though the owned us?

By Jim Campbell

January 15th, 2019

The Bureau of Land Management is clearly run like many federal agencies, a company of “Goose Stepping Nazi’s.”



The video below shows their tactics and the result when Bundy supporters came out in force armed to the teeth.

Let’s not forget, the reason for the Second Amendment was to prevent this type of governmental overreach.

The current particularly on the progress would strip us of our constitutional rights and get rid of the United States Constitution, which of course would mean war.

Note that the patriarch was not released on bail.

Where the hell would he go, to Puerto Rico to party with the leftist/progressive/Marxist Democrats?



There’s nothing like a good old civil or revolutionary war to clean up the gene pool.

The left will lose as they have no plan and don’t have weapons.


The ones they do possess are perfect for the job.

Chalk one up for the white hats.

Gun control is, was, and always will be, about de-fanging We the People and leaving us defenseless before a tyrannical out of control federal government

H/T to Jim O’Neill for the idea.

Ode to Clint Eastwood

Comments by Jim Campbell

January 15, 2019

H/T to Jim O’Neill SEAL TEAM II

This speaks to all of us old guys and old broads as well !



I’m sending this to my good friends who I hope will be very old some day.

It starts with Toby Keith playing golf with Clint Eastwood.

That sets the stage.

At one point, Eastwood said to Keith, “I turn 88 on Monday.”



“What are you going to do?” Keith asked.

“I’m going to shoot a movie,” Eastwood replied, filming scheduled to begin the following week.

“What keeps you going?” Keith asked him.

“I get up every day and don’t let the old man in,” Eastwood said.

“I’m writing this down right now,” Keith replied.

“Over the three days of playing golf, he told us what the movie was about.

I didn’t ask him if I could [contribute] a song, I just went home and wrote it, sent it to him and hoped that he would consider it, and, you know, he did.”

Here is Clint Eastwood’s latest offering,  “The Mule.”



This is a true story.

As Clint tells us below, he improvised because he couldn’t remember his lines. (Hardly, HA!)



The Mule, was directed by Clint Eastwood in which he plays an 88-year is based on the New York Times Magazine article, The Sinaloa Cartel’s 90-Year-Old Drug Mule.



The film recounts the true story of Leo Sharp, a World War II veteran who became a drug courier in his 80s for the Sinaloa Cartel.

It also stars Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Peña, Dianne Wiest, and Andy García.

This is Eastwood’s latest offering since “The Curve Ball,”
