The rarity of electing a man such as Donald Trump to the White House cannot be understated.
We are talking about a populist, Citizen President, who very clearly understands that this is a nation of people, not a nation of ruling class Congressmen and women who lord over us from their lobbyist-purchased penthouses, or sneer at us from their cushy, special-interest side gigs.
No, Donald Trump is different, and he has undoubtedly irked those who have been suckling at the government teat over the course of the last several decades.
For example, from the President’s first State of the Union address:
take our poll - story continues below
But above all else, they are Americans. And this Capitol, this city, and this Nation, belong to them.
Our task is to respect them, to listen to them, to serve them, to protect them, and to always be worthy of them.
Americans fill the world with art and music. They push the bounds of science and discovery. And they forever remind us of what we should never forget: The people dreamed this country. The people built this country. And it is the people who are making America great again.
As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve.
As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail.
Congress, apparently didn’t care for that, hence the increase in “resistance” activity over the course of the last 8 months.
Now, after the President has ordered the declassification of several internal documents from the FBI and DOJ, those organizations are pulling a “CYA”, or “cover your behind” maneuver that directly flies in the face of the President’s command.
President Donald Trump has demanded the “immediate declassification” of sensitive materials about the Russia investigation, but the agencies responsible are expected to propose redactions that would keep some information secret, according to three people familiar with the matter.
The Justice Department, FBI and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are going through a methodical review and can’t offer a timeline for finishing, said the people, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the sensitive matter.
The White House issued a statement on Monday listing material that Trump wants declassified immediately, echoing demands of Republican lawmakers who share his contention that the continuing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election was tainted by anti-Trump bias well before Robert Mueller was named special counsel to run it.
Among Trump’s demands was the full public release of all text messages concerning the Russia probe by Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and by several former officials, including two who were fired — former FBI Director James Comey and his deputy, Andrew McCabe. One person described the order to release text messages as unprecedented, and another said additional talks will probably be held with the White House over the matter.
This is not okay.
These redactions only serve to prove that the President was right: The American people, whom this nation belongs to, will be absolutely livid with what they will find in these documents.
In this age of American enlightenment, and in the coming information revolution, the FBI may cease to exist…and they will only have themselves to blame.
Texas Governor Signs Order Barring Further Mask Mandates
Around the nation, medical officials are beginning to express concerns about the proliferation of the “delta” variant of the coronavirus, and just what it could mean for the unvaccinated among us. These worries may fall on deaf ears, however, as the current state of vaccine reluctancy seems to suggest that those who remain unvaccinated today are almost exclusively doing so by choice. And so, given the highly contagious nature of the “delta” variant, combined with the fact that we’ve vaccinated just about everyone who wants to be, the CDC is suggesting that even those of us who’ve been inoculated should return to wearing masks in certain situations. Texas Governor Greg Abbott is not having it, however, and he’s not going to let any of Texas’ other politicians refute him, either. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, on Thursday signed an executive order prohibiting cities and other government entities in the state from enacting vaccine requirements or mask mandates to protect against the coronavirus, even as the virus’s more contagious delta variant drives another surge in covid-19 cases in Texas. Abbott’s order applies to any government entities receiving state funds, including counties, cities, school districts, public health authorities and government officials. He also declared that there be “no covid-19-related operating limits for any business or other establishment” in the state in order to “ensure the ability of Texans to preserve livelihoods while protecting lives.” The move comes as fellow Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced that he would allow parents to make decisions regarding whether or not their children would need to wear masks in school, similarly stripping that power from local bureaucrats.
Secret Service Reduced to Starbuck’s Runs with Hunter Biden’s Wife
And just wait until you see what it cost the taxpayers!
For an elite law enforcement unit such as the Secret Service, there has to come a point in which you wonder what it is that you’re even doing sometimes. These are the folks who would take a bullet, very literally, for our executive branch, yet some within the first family seem to think that they’re also to be used as errand boys. Hunter Biden’s wife was spotted being escorted by Secret Service agents on a Malibu, California coffee run Tuesday. Melissa Cohen, mother of Hunter’s 1-year-old son Beau, was spotted grabbing an iced coffee at a Starbucks near the couple’s California home accompanied by Secret Service agents. One agent stayed in the car behind the wheel while another agent opened the door for Cohen as she returned to the car holding the iced coffee. And just wait until you see what this coffee run cost the taxpayers… The Daily Mail calculated that since top agents earn $148,437 per year, which translates to an hourly rate of $71.36, the two-hour coffee excursion had a taxpayer-funded price tag of up to $285.44. The couple has been given 24-hour Secret Service protection at their $20,000 a month Malibu home. Hunter Biden has long stood accused of benefiting unduly from his father’s political clout, and it appears that perhaps this sort of sentiment is now spreading throughout the family.
