ELDER PATRIOT – The Left-Right paradigm is a corrupt construct intended to protect those who wallow in the swamp. To believe that only one party is guilty of corruption is childish naiveté of the highest order. If that were so things would change with each change of administration. But, they don’t.
To protect each other they tell us that in a democracy we don’t jail our political opponents. Why not? While they may conduct public dog and pony shows dressed as congressional investigations, they serve as nothing more than theater meant to swing the political needle.
No one ever goes to jail despite what we know is criminal behavior in the form of unnecessary foreign wars, the defrauding of taxpayers out of tens of trillions of dollars, corporate cronyism…the list is as endless as the imaginations of these phony “public servants.”
Former F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller is the Special Counsel appointed to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. He has been granted broad powers to follow the facts wherever they take him. Don’t hold your breath.
He is facing the same conundrum that the man who succeeded him as F.B.I. director, Jim Comey faced, virtually the entire Federal government has been corrupted.
One F.B.I. agent with “intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the Clinton case” told us, “There is enough for her and the entire government to be brought down. People do not realize how enormous this whole situation actually is”.
The Clintons have been spinning their web of corruption since they arrived in Washington in 1992. Mr. Mueller served as the F.B.I. Director from September 4, 2001 until September 4, 2013. After so long a period was he simply naïve to the Clinton’s criminal ways and the entire Washington swamp or did he come to the same conclusion that Comey did, that it would be best to avoid the massive shitstorm that would occur. Maybe he feared he’d be the victim of a suicide or botched robbery if he dared to investigate.
Let’s give Mueller the benefit of the doubt and proceed under the belief that until Hillary’s email scandal nothing was known. Of course, this also requires us to ignore the unlawful surveillance of private citizens that occurred under the directions of the Obama administration and that was in violation of FISA court orders. Mr. Mueller was the F.B.I. director when this began.
As Special Counsel Mueller has a high bar to clear if he seeks to restore integrity to government and it begins with him.
He has begun by looking into President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort who had worked as a consultant for Russian President Viktor Yanukovych. Fair enough. Heaven knows corruption in the Russian government could make even a longtime Washington politician blanch with envy.
Manafort consulted with Yanukovych while he was a private citizen and long before he went to work for then candidate Donald Trump. If the investigation turns up any unlawful behavior then Mueller should also determine if this was the reason that Trump replaced him with Kellyann Conway.
But this line of investigation, alone, is insufficient to restore American’s trust in their government for a number of reasons:
- Manafort is a peripheral player and not central to the corruption that is rooted in all three branches of government.
- Also, it ignores Hillary’s campaign CEO John Podesta’s ties to Russia and how that may have influenced not only the election but also, government decision making while Hillary was Secretary of State.
Podesta failed to disclose that he sat on the board of a Russian energy company that received $35 million from a Putin-connected Russian government fund.
Mueller must determine what role, if any, Podesta played in Hillary’s decision to okay the transfer of 20% of the Untied States’ uranium stockpile to Russian owned companies and why those companies “donated” $135 million to the Clinton Foundation. And, why both the Obama administration and the F.B.I. did nothing to stop it.
Then there’s this inconvenient truth: “During the so-called Russian reset, then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton led the way on U.S. involvement in a Russian government technology initiative that was intended to be the Russian equivalent of America’s Silicon Valley known as Skolkovo.” – Reported by Breitbart
Mueller was the F.B.I. director at the time. Did he look the other way while Hillary transferred highly guarded technology to the Russians? What qualified Hillary to determine which technology could be transferred without endangering U.U. security. After all, even years later she thought that wiping a server clean meant using a cloth and spray cleaner…or, so she claimed.
Mueller was the F.B.I. Director during the period that the Clinton’s massively grew their foundation and later when Hillary served as Secretary of State (2009-2013). The Clinton Foundation served as the financial clearinghouse for her to sell access and assets to foreign and corporate entities.
Mueller must prove that he is willing to investigate both of these sacred cows – Podesta and Clinton before he can be trusted that this is anything more than a witch hunt targeted at bring President Trump down.
The fact that Mueller had been appointed F.B.I. director by George W Bush does nothing to ease the fear that his allegiance isn’t to the American people but may lie with the swamp. Will the preservation of the Left-Right paradigm trump the truth – the whole truth – and the need to restore integrity to government?
President Trump promised to “Drain the Swamp.” The bare-knuckled fight is about to begin. He’s prepared to come out of this with his shield intact. Let’s pray he doesn’t come home on it.
