Scandals my foot.
IRS, NSA, DOJ, and Benghazi are not scandals. Anthony Weiner’s sexting expedition was a scandal. A legislator playing footsie at a public restroom was a scandal. When multiple players at the highest levels of government act in concert to defy the Constitution…when they see truth as anathema to their cause…what you have is not scandal, but systemic corruption.
When our President refuses to say where he was when a consulate was attacked, or what he did to defend the installation…when our (former) Secretary of State asks what difference it makes anyway…when our Attorney General covers up government gun-smuggling, is in contempt of Congress, and then lies under oath…when our Director of National Intelligence denies the surveillance of hundreds of millions of Americans, only to have the President admit it later…when our (former) IRS commissioner obstructs justice and permits civil rights violations as a matter of course…when our Ambassador to the United Nations misrepresents matters of national security (and gets a promotion for her effort)…that is not scandal.
That is tyranny.
The issues swirling around Washington are the planned work output of lawless operators who fancy themselves above accountability. They are a self-proclaimed royal class—the monarchs of a swamp kingdom.
So where is Nancy Pelosi? Didn’t she promise to drain the swamp?
That was then. This is now. Nancy’s swamp-draining business is out of business. Has been for years. Nancy’s no dummy. She knows where her bread is buttered. Her entrepreneurial instincts and high-powered associations spared her the fate of honest swamp-drainers. Those folks are either starving or being targeted by the IRS.
Yup. Swamp-drainers are out. Backfillers and teleprompters are in. One brings in raw political sewage and stuffs it down the American throat. The other brings in the propaganda, ladles it over the sewage, and stuffs it down the American throat.
The swamp stinketh, and only we the people can drain it.
