Our new President must start using his “catchphrase” again…
This time, though, it needs to be on the leftover Obama-loyal bureaucrats in State, the FBI, the CIA. Defense, the NSA and the Department of Justice.
This administration is leaking like a sieve — and most of it is illegal leaking of classified material to the press. No less than seven in the first three weeks of this administration, sensitive material such as transcripts of phone calls between the president and a foreign leader, leaked to the press. This should never be.
The latest was the issue over the resignation of Gen. Michael Flynn, the National Security Director, over his call with a Russian Ambassador during the transition between Obama’s administration, and Trump’s.
First, I admire loyalty – and he misled the vice-president, who, based on this misleading information, made public assertions, which were incorrect. In other words, Flynn’s lies made Pence to be a liar – publicly, and for that, the president had every right to ask for, and receive, Flynn’s resignation.
But, that was his only sin. You betray loyalty – you go – it’s that simple. I’ve personally, in a prior life, fired an entire staff for their lack of loyalty. I never had that problem again.
But what about the people who leaked the transcript of Flynn’s call with the Russian Ambassador to the press? This person or persons must at the very least, lose their jobs and security clearances – and should also face arrest for this. It’s illegal to pass classified material to unclassified recipients. 18 USC Sections 798 and 1924 are very explicit in these areas. Here’s a Google Link to them.
Where does this stuff come from?
- The National Security Agency (NSA) – which does the wiretapping
- The CIA, charged with overseas investigations and espionage working with the NSA
- The FBI, charged with domestic investigations and probably espionage, working with the NSA
- The State Department, which works hand-in-glove with the CIA in many respects
- The Department of Justice, who can run roughshod over the FBI and State
All of these “swamps” – have Obama-era appointees and Democrat-loyal bureaucrats, who would love to see nothing more, than the present administration taken down. There is no loyalty here – their horse lost, and they’re sore losers – and I’m sure that they’re taking marching orders from Obama in some form or another. Let’s see what Infowars has to say – check out this short, 7-minute report:
Conspiracy theory? I think not! But you decide. Here’s the article referenced in the Drudge Report. It’s important to note, per Bloomberg News:
Normally intercepts of U.S. officials and citizens are some of the most tightly held government secrets. This is for good reason. Selectively disclosing details of private conversations monitored by the FBI or NSA gives the permanent state the power to destroy reputations from the cloak of anonymity. This is what police states do. [Bloomberg]
These swamps need to be drained – the perpetrators found fired, arrested and thrown in prison for a long time. And if Obama is found to be part of this, and I’m sure he is, then he too, needs to be held for trial for Sedition… which is trying to overthrow the government.
Our Republic is at risk — but God set this new administration up, and I’m sure that as we all pray for divine intervention, that God will expose the cronyism going on in Washington, and that He will.
Keep praying, prayer warriors! Keep praying for God to expose the garbage, the alligators in the swamp, and to destroy them!
