That Sucking Sound is D.C. Swamp Draining

Do you hear that? Listen closely. Do you hear it now?

Slowly but surely, President Donald Trump is fulfilling yet another campaign promise. He’s draining the swamp of its swamp creatures and parasitic power suckers.

Exhibit A: On August 13 the public learned that Peter Strozk, the former FBI counterintelligence agent, texting fiend and wife cheater, had been dismissed the Friday before.

FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich overturned an earlier decision by the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (a misnomer if I ever heard one) to allow Strozk continued employment with the FBI after a 60-day suspension.

A mere 60-day suspension for falsifying charges against a presidential candidate and scheming to overthrow a duly elected president would be the equivalent of taking away a teenager’s car keys and Internet privileges for bombing their school.

Strozk’s attorney warned that his client’s termination “should be deeply troubling to all Americans.”

Yeah, right.  I’ve been sleeping like a baby all week knowing that the smug and snarky Strozk was getting his comeuppance – with the promise of more to come.

Exhibit B: On August 15 White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders read a statement from the president announcing he was revoking the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan.

Brennan was a disastrous CIA director with a security clearance.  If his “trumped” up Russian collusion narrative was true, why didn’t he stop it? Because it wasn’t. That makes him a liar rather than incompetent, but either way this guy shouldn’t be within 10 miles of classified information.

Naturally MSM types immediately commenced with their usual histrionics: “Trump’s suppressing free speech;” “he’s punishing his critics;” “he’s working from an enemies list,” and a personal favorite – “what he’s doing is Nixonian.”

If only the Deep State’s efforts to illegally influence an election, and weaponize government agencies in order to unjustly frame a duly elected president was as quaint as Watergate.

What the Deep State cabal has been doing the past two years makes the Watergate burglary look Rockwellian by comparison.

Progressive media types say Trump has assumed dictatorial powers by revoking Brennan’s security clearance, but Huckabee-Sanders said the president has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information – hence Brennan’s firing was legitimate.

But wait…it gets better.

Washington’s “Steel Magnolia” press secretary added that several other former and current Obama administration officials are being considered for having their clearances revoked: James Clapper, James Comey, Susan Rice, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr and others.

If the media thinks a few Obamaites losing their security clearances, and others being demoted and terminated is the end of this sordid D.C. soap opera, they need to stay tuned…this show is only getting started.

Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country. For those who believe in open borders, safe spaces, and who think free speech is hate speech, move on – there’s nothing here for you to see.
