Democrat West Virginia governor Jim Justice has switched to the Republican party. This is yet another blow to the Democrat party. This means that Republicans now have 34 governors out of 50 states, while Democrats have only 16.
Justice’s switch means that the GOP will have full majority control of both legislative branches and the governor’s office in 26 states, while Democrats now have full control in just 6 states.
Population of Republican controlled states: 164 million people
Population of Democrat controlled states: 50 million people
Republicans also now majority-control 68 out of 99 state legislative bodies. This is fascinating after decades in which Democrats told us that they were “the party of the people”.
Nikitas3.com also has conjectured that West Virginia’s conservative Democrat US senator Joe Manchin may switch to the Republican party, inspired by Justice. If he does not switch he is going to face a significant Republican challenge in 2018 in a state that loves president Trump.
Now here is today’s main commentary:
Since the day that president Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 presidential election the Democrats and media have been furious about every single thing that the president has said and done.
They were outraged that he had two scoops of ice cream with his dessert. They were infuriated that he fired James Comey. There was a “firestorm” when he banned sex changers from the military. There was indignation when he picked a new chief of staff. They said that he shook hands too long with the French president.
But the media just cannot keep up with Trump. They have a new outrage every day. The old ones just keep fading away.
This, friends, is why Nikitas3.com believes that president Trump should fire special counsel Robert Mueller. The liberals will be outraged, but it will pass.
Removing Mueller would eliminate a major thorn in Trump’s side – not that Trump colluded with Russia, which has been debunked. No, the problem is that Mueller is going to go on a massive legal “fishing expedition” with an unlimited budget to do anything he can do to bring down Trump or at the very least to constantly distract the president from doing what he was elected to do. Trump should put a stop to this pronto.
Mueller and his Washington cronies are part of the so-called Deep State that hates Trump. They are furious that Trump won an astounding and legitimate victory last November.
This Deep State is the permanent and petty Washington bureaucracy that wants all of its power, comforts and wealth while the people of America suffer. This bureaucracy does not shift with different presidents; it just stays there in Washington and builds power, wealth and seniority.
Trump is challenging all of this…
This Deep State is lazy, corrupt and incompetent like typical government workers who spend half or all of their work day playing cards or looking at porn on the computer. If you ever have had to deal with these agencies, you know how bad they are.
Take the Federal Aviation Administration, which sounds like an innocuous outfit. But this is a sclerotic agency that has been famous for decades for maintaining World War II technology, like radar and voice communication, for today’s air traffic control of our passenger airline system. Controllers even write plane numbers on strips of paper to keep track of them. Meanwhile most of the world has shifted to modern methods like computers and satellites.
President Trump wants this system modernized, which is only rational. But FAA does not want that because that would threaten their stilted bureaucracy. In other words the people who work at FAA want no changes whatsoever in their agency or its methods because it might disrupt their static, lackadaisical and privileged way of life. And if you ever have seen how these bureaucracies work, it is appalling. The only thing that functions with 100% modern efficiency is the computer that prints their paychecks and pension statements.
The people who work at FAA do not want the air traffic system modernized so that all American travelers might have safer and quicker flights. No, all that matters to FAA is the well-being of the 47,000 people who work there, including 13,000 in Washington alone, and the rest spread out around the country in the air traffic control system.
Fact: The richest per-capita counties in America all surround Washington, DC and are populated by pampered bureaucrats who work in the federal government. That is why these people want nothing to even begin to challenge or disrupt their worldview or their way of life… like Donald J. Trump.
Meanwhile president Trump is the real hero. He wants to dismantle this self-serving bureaucracy. He wants “the people” to have power, not the privileged bureaucrats inside “the blob”.
Robert Mueller is part of this blob. The media have sought to portray Mueller as a “straight shooter” and a grandfatherly figure who will get to the truth. This is false. Mueller is a corrupt and spoiled member of the Deep State and he should never be trusted, just like James Comey cannot be trusted. Nor Loretta Lynch. Nor Hillary Clinton. Nor any of them.
These people are permanent Washington insiders. They are the “enemy of the people” along with the media. We do not even know if we can trust the FBI or CIA. Or NSA or the DIA. These institutions all have been infiltrated by the Deep State.
Consider John Brennan, Obama’s last CIA director, who is a hard-left Deep Stater. He is a vicious Trump hater and has made repeated statements against Trump, which no Bush people did to Obama. But one look at Brennan’s scowling face shows a very scary person; he is an anti-American extremist like a lot of people in Washington are.
In 1976 Brennan voted for the communist candidate in the 1976 US presidential election. Then when Brennan applied to work at the CIA he was frightened that revealing this vote would disqualify him. Yet he was accepted anyway and has risen to the top. Brennan then used CIA throughout 2016 as an arm of the Hillary Clinton campaign, which is illegal. Here is The American Spectator writing about Brennan on April 19, 2017:
Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.
John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump. An official in the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even bother to hide their activism, decorating offices with “Hillary for president cups” and other campaign paraphernalia.
A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump. He bastardized standards so that these left-wing activists could burrow in and take career positions. Under the patina of that phony professionalism, they could then present their politicized judgments as “non-partisan.”
This shows the continuing corruption of our defense and intelligence agencies, making our nation less and less safe. Even the 9/11 terror attack could have been easily prevented if our national security agencies like FBI had been vigilant. But many inside these agencies don’t care. They are most concerned about their paychecks and their pensions.
China builds up its military? No problem to the Deep State and John Brennan and Robert Mueller.
Iran gets nuclear weapons? Ho-hum.
North Korea shoots off missiles? Who cares.
But oh, boy, if Donald Trump gets two scoops of ice cream or shakes the French president’s hand for too long, well then that needs national attention! Let’s investigate!
This shows a contaminated Deep State that should be causing major concern among those of us who cherish liberty and the Constitution.
Now here are excerpts from a commentary by Greg Jarrett of Fox News giving yet another reason why Robert Mueller should be fired:
Robert Mueller has a serious conflict of interest that should disqualify him from serving as special counsel. He has had a long and close relationship with someone who will surely become a pivotal witness –James Comey.
…How can Americans have confidence in the results if they know the special counsel may harbor a conspicuous bias? They cannot. The conflict inevitably discredits whatever conclusion is reached. It renders the entire investigatory exercise suspect, and it only elevates the controversy surrounding it.
For this reason, Mueller should not serve as special counsel.
The law governing the special counsel (28 CFR 600.7) specifically prohibits him from serving if he has a conflict of interest in the case. The rule has been interpreted to mean that even the appearance of a conflict is sufficient for disqualification.
A conflict of interest is a situation in which an individual has competing interests or loyalties. The conflict itself creates a clash between that individual’s self-interest or bias and his professional or public interest. It calls into question whether he can discharge his responsibilities in a fair, objective and impartial manner.
… So what exactly is Mueller’s conflict? He and Comey are good friends and former colleagues who worked hand-in-hand at the FBI and Department of Justice. Agents will tell you they were joined at the hip. They stood together in solidarity, both threatening to resign over the warrantless wiretapping fiasco involving then-Attorney General John Ashcroft in 2004.
Comey regards his predecessor as a mentor, while Mueller considers Comey his protégé. When Comey was appointed to succeed Mueller as FBI Director, both men appeared together and were effusive in their praise of one another. Their relationship is not merely a casual one. It is precisely the kind of association which ethical rules are designed to guard against.
