By Guest Columnist, Michael Ceremello – December 27, 2018 –
A new insight has come to me about the state of our country and the constant attacks on our president. For those of you who think this is about Donald J. Trump, it is not. Trump is simply the personification of a true leader and intelligent thinker who has come to the obvious conclusion that Washington, D.C. is far beyond what its original intent was and he, unlike others before him, is willing to take the slings and arrows while attempting and achieving a goal of doing something about it.
To explain it in simpler terms so that the readers in Rio Linda can understand my point, (substitute the name for your own city for that of Rush Limbaugh’s denigration favorite), it wouldn’t make a bit of difference who is president if he or she was truly attempting to “drain the swamp”. Now you simply need to figure out the “WHY?”.
In the case of “progressives”, they have their own agenda in addition to retaining their political power while enslaving the rest of us as good communists always do. They will stop short of killing us because many of us are still armed, making it apparent why they keep attacking the Second Amendment in order to put us in line for the Pol Pot solution.
Why is it that these same people, the Kamala Harrises, Schumers, and Pelosis along with newcomers such as Cory Booker and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want an open border, no immigration laws, and an end to immigration enforcement by calling for the abolition of ICE, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement? Those at the top who live behind security walls at their own homes don’t want the country protected from an invasion by anyone.
Why do you have locks on the doors to your house? Is it because you “hate” those who might try to enter uninvited? Hey, they only want to clean your house and take care of your yard! So why are you keeping them out? The reality is this isn’t some version of John Lennon’s “Imagine” where we have given up our possessions.
The next segment of the SWAMP are those within the media. Why would they become “true believers” in progressivism and liberalism gone lunatic? This may be purely a power play based on their own egos because they couldn’t gain the same status by doing anything truly productive. If we include Hollywood in this group, the logic still applies.
While some may believe social engineering coupled with attempting to make the abnormal normal is productive, I do not. The capitalist system has made these folks rich as has the casting couch when morality is thrown out the window. Elitism based on idolization and massive paychecks does not equate to the ability to expound on political themes rationally or coherently.
You see the redefining of English language terms to justify illogic. Hypocrisy is one of their tools. How is it that 50% of our population doesn’t see any of this or refuses to believe it when they do? That is the definition of a true believer.
Looking for a third group isn’t much of a struggle. We now look to the phony pseudo-conservatives within the self declared conservative party. Jeff Flake and the late John McCain, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and even Rand Paul oppose the citizens and voters of this country who have said “we have had enough and we want change and not the type the last president was giving us”. So why would these people side against someone attempting to “drain” the SWAMP?
They are all part of the SWAMP. Being in politics is not supposed to be a career path. It was called serving your fellow countrymen and your Nation, then going back to your regular lives. Instead we are treated to womanizers such as Teddy Chappaquiddick Kennedy, Joe Biden, and others on both sides of the aisle whose main desires can be summed up in that old phrase “follow the money”. Easy life, power over others, massaged egos because of that, and you pretty much can see why they don’t want the SWAMP system altered.
While I have already identified the leaders of the cult, the true SWAMP still has not been mentioned. It is pervasive, so pervasive it is in every aspect of government from small entities to large. Again the driving force is power over others. It is all about rules. Rules created to validate irrational actions based on larger agendas. May I present the bureaucrats of the bureaucracies.
These people rely on the government for sustenance as much as anyone on welfare or other government assistance. The majority of them can’t hold employment in private business or industry or simply choose not to because the power aspect of the job isn’t there.
So we have identified the players. Opposing this massive group would be a minority of representatives who believe in liberty and the Constitution. They are called the Freedom Caucus. Wikipedia calls them “far right” as if it were derogatory. Again, they represent the majority of Americans so of course they are the enemy of those within the SWAMP.
How can we expect Congress to take action for the American people when the majority of our elected representatives are part of the problem and embedded in the SWAMP? So what branch of the Federal government, the only branch, has the ability to be a majority of one?
You wonder why the president has everyone at his throat including many within his own administration? He is one man fighting against insane odds and a multitude of adversaries. So it doesn’t make a difference who is in this position if that person is acting contrary to the preservation of the SWAMP denizens. No one likes to be told, “You are fired” but we now have a man who made his media fame using that line.
Now do you see why any positive achievement must be contradicted? Any action taken must be spun. This man has put his family on the line because the SWAMP is worse than the mob, given their public statements saying if they can’t get the president they will go after his family.
So before you go back into your true believer fetal position in personal denial of the verifiable facts and well thought out deductive reasoning, I would suggest you attack my logic by finding other motives for the actions of those in opposition.
Actions speak louder than words. The Democrat leadership has finally been exposed on their lie about wanting border security, the security they promised Reagan and the security they voted for in 2006. Much like Obamacare and the phony Republican opposition, it is easy to promise action when you know the votes aren’t there. Just like McCain screwing up ridding America of a failed healthcare system, the Schumers and Pelosis played the game until the writing on the wall says the Fat Lady Has Sung.
So America, you can see the truth as well as I can. I am not interested in having a perfect man or woman as president.
I simply want one who doesn’t bullshit me and delivers on his or her promises …
