In some of my recent articles, I wrote that the Left was obsessed with destroying the Trump Presidency because he was a threat to their power. When the new Congress was sworn in on January 3, 2019, this became even more obvious than it had been. The Democrats in the “Washington Cesspool”, with the support of the RINO Republicans and the eager assistance of the MSM, are flaunting their disdain for everything Conservative. And now Democrat party leaders in a number of states are “piling on”. Nothing is “off limits” and facts do not matter. The only thing that matters is destroying the Trump Presidency.
I am still convinced that the Left’s sole objective is keeping total control of the power in Washington in their hands. However, I now think that there is something else the Left fears more than losing power. If they do not succeed in destroying the Trump Presidency he will weaken the Left’s stranglehold on America, and the “Double Standard of Justice” that exist in the “Washington Cesspool” will be dramatically weakened. The “Washington Cesspool” cannot exist without the “Double Standard of Justice”.
There has been a “Double Standard of Justice” in Washington for a long time. The Clinton administration relied on it to do as it pleased, but Bill was deceptive about it. He did not flaunt it. However, during Obama’s eight years in the White House, it became an integral part of the operations of every branch of our Federal government. It got so deeply rooted in every branch of our Federal Government that it became an accepted way of life for the Left. It became a “Double Standard of Justice” on steroids for the Left!
Past examples of the “Double Standard of Justice” are well known:
- The Clintons used the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Initiative, Bill’s fundraisers for the African Aids project and the Haiti Restoration project to become billionaires and enrich a wide circle of friends and supporters.
- Hillary and her State Department staff’s blatant violation of Federal Government security regulations to cover up her endless stream of “Pay for Play” activities, with no one charged with a crime. When Hillary and her staff were questioned about this by the FBI they were not under oath, the meetings were brief and no one took notes.
- The DNC fixed the primary to be sure Hillary won.
- Hillary and the DNC colluded with the Obama Administration, the FBI and DOJ to try and destroy the Trump campaign.
- The Obama Administration’s “Fast and Furious” debacle.
- The IRS illegally targeted over 100 conservative groups (and individual members of these groups), while handing out tax-exempt IRS approvals to every radical group they could find.
- The Benghazi cover-up.
- The Obama Administration’s illegal surveillance and “unmasking” of American citizens.
- The leadership of the FBI and DOJ openly worked at destroying the Trump campaign while protecting Hillary, and then openly plotted to remove an elected President from office. They were so unconcerned about how illegal their actions were, and any chances they would be charged with crimes, they left a long trail of text messages and e-mails behind documenting their actions!
In spite of how blatant these examples of the “Double Standard of Justice” were, no one involved went to jail, Obama was re-elected and the Clintons and Obamas (and many of their friends and supporters) became rich beyond their wildest dreams.
And now we are seeing glaring examples of the other end of the “Double Standard of Justice”:
- People who were associated with the Trump campaign have been subjected to “no-knock” predawn raids by large numbers of heavily armed FBI agents, they and their families’ lives are being destroyed and some are facing many years in prison and huge fines. Nothing they have been charged with had anything to do with the Trump campaign. People on the left who did the same things these people are being charged with have been totally ignored.
- Every Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives is now chaired by a hard-Left Democrat. Every one of these committees is spending millions of dollars to open new investigations into “everything Trump”. As noted earlier many Democrats in state governments are joining in these endless investigations and/or opening their own endless investigations into “everything Trump”. In some of these “investigations”, the Left is also going after members of President Trump’s family.
When you look at these examples of the “Double Standard of Justice” that exist in the “Washington Cesspool it is easy to conclude that the “Washington Cesspool” is so deep and corrupt that it cannot be fixed. But that is beginning to change! Donald Trump declared he was running to be President on the Republican Party ticket, and then he won the election and was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America!
In recent months every top official in the FBI and DOJ has been forced to resign or been fired. The only one left is Rod Rosenstein at the DOJ and his resignation was just made public. Some of these people have been investigated by independent IG’s and some are still being investigated. There are strong indications that some of them will be charged with crimes. Lying under oath, tampering with evidence in Federal investigations, illegally leaking confidential information, and illegally plotting to remove a sitting President are some of the crimes they will likely be charged with. Andrew McCabe is the best example that these people will be charged with Federal crimes. He is on a nonstop stream of appearances on various media outlets insisting that everything he did was approved by FBI and DOJ officials, including James Comey and Rod Rosenstein! As I watched parts of his interviews over the last few days I thought to myself that this is the first serious crack in the “Washington Cesspool’s” “Double Standard of Justice”! And Donald Trump is still in the White House!
