Mueller Victim Exposes Massive FRAUD

Michael Caputo, Mueller Victim

“Today, I can’t possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up. Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money – more than $125,000 – and making a visceral impact on my children. Now I must to move back to Washington, New York City, Miami or elsewhere, just so I can make enough money to pay off these legal bills. And I know I have you to thank for that.”
‘Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election. I want to know because God Damn you to Hell.”

It’s plain to see that the Mueller farce, meant to undermine the Trump agenda and boost Democrats, is ruining lives. The anti-Trump swamp doesn’t care how many innocent lives they destroy, so long as they can get famous, make money, and hurt Trump.

Deep State Swamp exposed: Robert Mueller Praise is False Information

Rush Limbaugh

The never-ending praise and accolades for the fairness, the open-mindedness, the nonjudgmentalism, the integrity and the honor of Robert Mueller has been his hallmark that has been his reputation for as long as he’s been in Washington. As either the FBI director, assistant attorney general — he’s served a number of presidents in a number of positions — his reputation is impeccable. And if you ask me, none of it’s true, and none of it is warranted.

To me, this guy, Robert Mueller, personifies actually what is wrong with the Washington establishment, not what is right about it. No more integrity than this guy has. More honor than anybody else. I mean, he’s the personification of Dudley Do-Right. If Robert Mueller were this honorable person — the right choice to get to the bottom of this for the sake of the nation, for the sake of our culture, for the sake of doing the right thing — then he would have shut down this investigation long ago and lectured everybody about the improprieties and dangers involved in all of this.

He would have exposed the conspiracy and the corruption in the FBI that prolonged this, and he would have named names. He would have properly looked into real collusion between Fusion GPS, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democrat National Committee and the Russians and Christopher Steele. He would have exposed it! He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier was fake, phony, and fraudulent. He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier had been illegally used to get a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page and whoever else that the Obama team wanted to spy on.

He would have been the one to expose all of this, if he were the guy we’ve been told that he is. But he’s obviously not. He’s right in there with the rest of these partisan buffoons helping to perpetuate this crock, helping to perpetuate this injustice. And if this is the guy… If this is the guy we’re all told, “Trust it, Rush! Trust Mueller. He’s the guy to get to the bottom of this. He’ll find out what’s been going on. He’s got no partisan chip in his bones. Yeah, he’s a registered Republican, but that doesn’t matter.”

And then of course we find out that in the Whitey Bulger case, four people — innocent people — spent 30 years in jail when he knew they didn’t do it. Two of them died in jail! And one of the reasons was so he could protect the identity of a confidential informant. There isn’t any integrity here, and there isn’t any honor, and it doesn’t appear there’s any justice going on. So now we see that Rudy says that Mueller’s team shouts down the idea of written interviews with Trump.

And what we learned, after studying it over the weekend, was that the stuff that had been redacted was simply to protect the incompetent and perhaps biased procedures that they had engaged in at the FBI and the DOJ throughout this entire investigation. There was nothing national security related. It had all been redacted simply to cover up what Strzok and Page had been doing. It had been redacted to cover-up that Comey had been lying to people.

Comey did tell people that Flynn did not lie. Comey did tell people that he had talked to interviewees, people who talked to Flynn and nobody that interviewed Flynn thought that he had lied and yet here he’s pled guilty to lying? Now, the point that I made is Trump enjoys, I think, the political position of victim. He likes being able to tweet out all these things that Rosenstein and Mueller and the rest of these people are doing. Trump has the constitutional authority to unredact anything.

This stuff could have been ordered unredacted months ago. All Trump has to do is pick up the phone and call Rosenstein and order it done. The president can declassify anything. But he hasn’t. He has instead enjoyed tweeting about how unfair it is and about how ridiculous it is and how somebody needs to do something. Because I think Trump’s lawyers have got him convinced that if he did that, that he would be guilty of obstructing justice — and he’s dead wrong, and they’re dead wrong.

Constitution Facts

If the Congress — the elected representatives of the people who created the DOJ! The DOJ’s not in the Constitution. Congress creates the DOJ. They have oversight. If they command to see something, Trump can make them reveal it, and that’s not obstructing justice. But Trump’s lawyers are scared to death that any move — firing Mueller, unredacting this stuff, declassifying — would be seen as obstructing justice, obstructing the investigation and that Trump would be hurt politically.

I think it’s the exact opposite.

I think people would dance in the streets if Trump ordered these people to come clean with what they don’t have and end this.

Rush Limbaugh

It’s Time to Reassert the Power of the Presidency Over Bob Mueller

No special counsel has anywhere near the power of the president of the United States, in terms of the Constitution or any other structure. And neither does the deputy attorney general or the attorney general. The president is the executive branch, and everybody there serves at his pleasure.

But these people are setting it up that if they succeed in getting rid of Trump, then every president thereafter is going to be seen in terms of legal precedent subordinate to, in this case the intelligence community and the DOJ because they’re the ones running this show and acting like the president is beneath them, underneath them, however in the power structure of things.

The Constitution is being reconfigured here, and depending on how this ends, it is going to have precedent setting aspects for the office of the presidency as well.

Why Hasn’t John Kerry Been Arrested? He Has Leftist Privilege

Like Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State John Kerry apparently enjoys the immunity from prosecution that being a powerful Leftist brings you today.

The Boston Globe revealed Friday that Kerry is working hard to sabotage President Trump’s foreign policy regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran. Kerry reportedly “sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”

This was not, apparently, a one-off meeting between Kerry and the foreign minister of the regime that orders its citizens to chant “Death to America” in mosques every Friday: “It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.”

And if you’re John Kerry, you can traverse the globe doing everything you can to undermine the foreign policy of the United States government, secure in the confidence that you will not face any consequences at all. You’re John Kerry. You’re a made man in the Leftist political elite. You could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue, and awaken the next morning to adoring headlines in the New York Times and the Washington Post.

A Review of Obama’s Disastrous Iran Deal That Trump Just Saved Us From

Rush Limbaugh

When it comes to the Iran deal, I’m gonna go back and review a whole bunch of things from the past that we touched on when they came out that everybody has forgotten, that detail just how rotten this deal was to begin with. They also detail how the Obama administration virtually lied to the American people about it, and did so with the assistance of the media and the new alliance between the media and the Obama intelligence apparatus.

Sen. Ben Sasse: Two-and-a-half years ago, President Obama made a bad deal with Iran without support from Congress, and today President Trump is pulling out of President Obama’s personal commitment, and he doesn’t need Congress’s support to do” it because Congress had nothing to do with authorizing this.

Obama did this personally. Obama never had the votes in the U.S. Congress to get this ratified as a treaty. So Obama did it by virtue, by way of executive action. And that’s the only reason Trump is able to rip it up the way he has. If this had been sanctioned and authorized as a treaty by the United States Senate, Trump could not have done what he did yesterday. The key to remember is that Obama never had the support even of prominent people in his own party.

Collusion with Foreign Government Russia

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection.com for his great cartoons

This was a disastrous deal. One of the… The $150 billion that Obama pledged to Iran upon signing of the deal? Trump has made a big deal out of that $150 billion, and of course there was another amount of money — in cash — that was delivered (chuckles) on an unmarked airplane to the Tehran airport, pallets of cash that were from Obama to the government of Iran, ostensibly for the release of American hostages. But one of the things that’s not being commented on in all of this — and it’s understandable when you hear it.

You know who one of Iran’s most important allies is? Take a guess. (singing Jeopardy! theme) Beep! Right. Russia. Russia is one of Iran’s biggest allies.

An outpost in the Middle East. Guess what? They had it with Iran. Who has been supplying Iran, largely…? They’re not the only ones, but who has been one of the majority players in supplying Iran with nuclear technology for weaponized nukes and nuclear power?

Support Terrorism, Defend Iran against Israel

Netanyahu proved Iran lied

John Kerry, secretary of state, admitted that some of the money we gave Iran would be used to fund terrorism. And they’re trying to tell us that this was a great deal and that pulling out of this deal is gonna put the United States at great risk. We were at great risk in this deal! Do you know, do you remember, this Iran deal that Obama made had a clause requiring us to defend Iran if Iran were attacked — including if they were attacked by Israel?

Trump has been talking about that since 2015 and this been one of the primary reasons Trump has wanted to pull out of this. Iran took that $150 billion and repaid the Russians for some of the nuclear infrastructure they had been building. Now with the deal over, Iran has no more source of money. And with sanctions being reenacted, reemployed on Iran, it’s gonna be even tougher for the Iranians to continue to do business with the Russians.

American Treasury Money for Terrorism

RUSH: By the way, folks, that $150 billion from Obama to Iran, it just didn’t go to Russia. John Kerry admitted that some of it would be diverted to jihad. You know what that means. Terrorism. So some of that Obama $150 billion — well, American $150 billion — went to Syria, went to the Taliban. It flowed to Hamas and Hezbollah for the war on Israel. It went to Yemen, where there’s a proxy war going on against Saudi Arabia — which, by the way, is now part of the new Trump alliance with Israel.

And then a lot of that money went to Russia to repay Russia — or to pay Russia, period — for some of the nuclear infrastructure building that the Russians had done for the Iranians. So it’s just an absolute outrage what the whole deal was in the first place.It’s nothing more than what Obama wanted to do with American foreign policy in Iran for which he never had the votes; the Iranians never signed it. It has never been binding, except to the extent that nobody would oppose it! But it’s never had the force of constitutional law behind it! It’s no different than how Obama got away with so much during his presidency. Nobody had the guts to stop him.

 

Scam? More Accurately— Treason

And they got $150 billion in cash from Obama and the State Department — well, the Treasury — and this whole thing was presented to the American people as a serious, constitutional treaty that represented an official United States agreement with the government of Iran with several allied nations as signatories (i.e., our European allies). This was nothing but another scam, folks!

And the scam was pulled off by way of an alliance between the Obama intelligence people — that would be the CIA, the DIA, the NSA, all the people that ran these agencies that were Obama acolytes — and the media as willing accomplices in furthering the misconception about this.

Stymied Investigation into Hezbollah, Drug-Trafficking

“The Obama administration stymied a sprawling investigation into the terror group Hezbollah — and its highly lucrative drug-trafficking networks — to protect the Iran nuclear deal, according to a bombshell report. A team…” Remember, this is last December.

 “A team at the Drug Enforcement Administration had been working for almost a decade to bring down [Hezbollah]’s sophisticated $1 billion-a-year drug ring, which laundered money and smuggled cocaine into the United States, Politico reported.

“But the departments of Justice and Treasury,” that would be the Obama Justice Department and Treasury, “repeatedly undermined agents’ efforts to arrest and prosecute key members of the criminal network — because the Obama White House feared upsetting Tehran ahead of the nuclear agreement, according to Politico.”

All of this is in Politico, and it’s repeated and reported in the New York Post. So everywhere you look at this deal, it was a gigantic deception and a scam — and all it is, is Barack Obama’s personal policy preferences regarding America’s relationship with Iran.

Now we need to find out what made Iran so important to Barack Obama that all of this deceit would be entered into in order to construct a, quote-unquote, “deal” the American people were told would prevent the Iranians from getting a nuclear weapon? Who was really the purpose of this? Why was this so important to Obama? We know now why he didn’t submit this for ratification. We know why this was not treated as a treaty.

 

Why? Because Obama is a friend of Iran, and an enemy of United States and Israel. (C.D.)

Abuse of Power: Obama Vacation Cost

Abuse of Power:

Obama Vacation Cost

Here’s how much the Obama family has $pent on vacations over the la$t eight year$

Tré Goins-Phillips

govwasteabounds.Over the past eight years, President Barack Obama and his family have spent more than $10 million a year for travel and vacations, totaling in excess of $85 million — and the number is still growing.

The numbers were revealed Monday by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The organization has been tracking the president’s travel spending for several years and just disclosed, based on bills it received this week, that the first family spent almost $5 million in taxpayer money for their annual Christmas vacation to Hawaii last year.

The Obamas, who will officially move out of the White House on Jan. 20, are expected to leave soon for their annual Christmas trip, which last year lasted from Dec. 18 to Jan. 3.

King-Barack-ObamaThe exact number for the 2015 holiday trip rang in at $4,823,206.88, which accounted for a robust U.S. Secret Service apparatus, flights and transportation and lodging for the security officials. That number does not include the costs for prepositioning aircraft and ships in the area or much of the necessary communications to protect the president and his family.

“The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said in a statement on the matter. “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”

From the Judicial Watch report:

According to bills obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the Secret Service also paid for rooms at the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club.  The Secret Service also reserved rooms at the Moana Surfrider resort on Waikiki Beach, and the Ala Moana Hotel, which cost a total of $40,249.48 and $671,895.99, respectively.

The Secret Service rented cars from Avis, Alamo, and Hertz — 103 cars for the two-week vacation, totaling $165,893.88 in taxpayer money.

Reportedly, the Obamas stayed at the Hale Reena Estate, which “rents for anywhere between $5,000 to $10,000 a night, depending on the season.”

The first family also dined at several top-of-the-line restaurants while they were on the trip, which — in addition to the fees for the food — required presidential-level security.

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the information in January and the documents were released in response to a lawsuit filed on May 6.

Here’s how much the Obama family has spent on vacations over the last eight years

You know, where you went to school, where you work, who your parents were, legacy things like this. 

So many people are so fed up because the last thing this group cares about is the country.  They don’t care about what’s good for the country.  That falls by the wayside in the wake of considerations of what’s good for them.

“Of course, the Clintons are not only corrupt but cynical as well.

Sexual predations, the demonization of women, graft, and unequal protection under the law are also of no consequence to the inbred, conflicted, and morally challenged media — who will always check in with the Clinton team, like errant dogs who scratch the backdoor of their master after a periodic runaway,” wanting to be let back in.”

It just dissects everything that is the Clintons: Clinton, Inc., Clinton friends, how the Clintons managed to go from paupers to multi-, multi-, multimillionaires without producing anything, without generating anything.  It’s a story of Clinton graft, Clinton graft, Clinton corruption.  It’s everything that you know, so well-crafted as to be undeniable.  So those are two long-form pieces I want to call your attention to.

hillaryclintoncash2-1SCHWEIZER:  Well, and, you know, Rush, what I tell people is you look at this Clinton corruption, this model they’ve set up with the Clinton Foundation and with these speaking fees. They’ve created a model to take hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign entities that are looking to curry favor.  They can’t give to their campaigns ’cause that would be illegal.  It’s a way around the law. And here’s what we know in Washington.  The Clintons are doing this now.  If this is allowed to continue and they are allowed to get away with this, this is going to be imitated by political figures from both sides of the aisle.

So what we’re really talking about here is a fundamental transformation of the whole problem with money in politics.  But the problem’s not gonna be Wall Street or, you know, Big Oil or labor unions.  The money’s gonna be Russian oligarchs, Nigerian businessmen who are corrupt, Chinese government entities.  That’s what we’re talking about.  We’re talking about losing control of our political system and who really has the ear of our political leadership.  Those are the stakes.  This is about more than Bill and Hillary Clinton.  It’s about a whole new mode of corruption that is global in nature.

The planet is not gonna be habitable when they hit 65!  They actually believe this.  Journalist, blogger tech people — 25/30-year-old Millennials — they actually believe this.  And they believe in nonsense explanations for it.  Too much carbon in the atmosphere, fracking, oil production, SUVs being driven around.  They really believe if we don’t find a way to get to Mars in 50 years, that the human race will die out.  They really believe it! I mean, this is… It’s insane!

And, of course, we don’t have an opposition party that dares speak up about any of this.  It’s left to us to do it.  And, of course, the left doesn’t want to hear any opposition to this.  They want to steamroller everybody. So we end up taking the arrows for all of this.  I don’t care, folks.  It’s just… This is near criminal what is being done to the great economy, the great health care system, and to the people of this country.

And the people who have made this mess, from the college education to health care, have no right… They do not deserve to be reelected. They do not deserve to stay in power. They do not deserve four more years or eight more years to continue this destruction of what once was the greatest country in the history of humanity, and yet it looks like they’re on the verge of being reelected.

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection for his great cartoons

RUSH:  Yeah, yeah, I know.  There’s some conservatives out there who, despite all of this going on — and they know full well all of this is going on.  They know what’s happening to health care; they know what’s happening via climate change; they know the designs that the left in this country and Hillary Clinton, they know the designs these people have on power and total control, owning the Supreme Court. And even that is not enough for some them to join us in trying to beat Hillary Clinton because it involves supporting Donald Trump.  They can’t embarrass themselves to actually support or recommend Trump, so you balance things out and it apparently is judged to be better to let Hillary continue the Obama administration march on America than to stop it. 

Now, I would ask you what good is the conservative movement if that’s the choice some of its leaders make?  But that’s a subject for another day.  And, believe me, that’s gonna come up.  Whether Trump wins this or loses this, this internecine war is still in the skirmish stage compared to where these people want to take it.

Obama Writes 46 Letters to Felons, But Ignores the Steinle Family

Obama-writesRUSH: “Nearly two weeks after 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle was murdered on San Francisco’s Pier 14 by an illegal alien and convicted felon who was released from prison earlier this year, President Barack Obama has failed to contact the victim’s family or mention her in public. Yet Obama took the time to write (and release) 46 personal letters this month to felons imprisoned for non-violent drug offenses whose sentences he has commuted.”

Not only did he write those letters, he has released them.  Oh, yes.

“Like the 46 felons to whom Obama wrote, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez had served time for non-violent offenses, some of them drug-related. … Critics have noted that Obama was quick to reach out to the family of Michael Brown, who was killed while charging a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri last year.” He’s done the same in other similar cases.  Obama sent three personal emissaries to the Gentle Giant’s funeral.  None were sent to the funeral of Miss Steinle and even yesterday we had the audio sound bite of the Homeland Security director, Jeh Johnson, testifying before Congress being asked about it and he didn’t even know the woman’s name. He didn’t even know who he was being asked about. 

A Republican congressman asked Jeh Johnson about Kathryn Steinle and he said, “Who?”  He didn’t know.  And he was perfectly fine with admitting that he didn’t know.  So while that family gets ignored, the incident is ignored, Obama doesn’t even reference it, he writes 46 letters, which are essentially apology letters and acknowledging that there are a lot of people like these 46 that are in jail that really shouldn’t be there, and he’s letting them out.  And he talks in the letter about himself, by the way. 

These letters to these 46 are actually about Obama, about what he’s done as president, about how he views the presidency, about how commutation power is among the most important and powerful things a president can do.  And he wants these 46 to know that he really is going to bat for ’em and he really is looking out for ’em, and he’s the one who really cares about ’em.  And, by inference, he’s the one who knows that they’ve been put in jail unjustly and by golly, by gosh, he’s gonna fix it.  That’s the point of his letters to these people.  We have audio sound bites on this.  We start here, this is last night in Philadelphia, the NAALCP national convention.

obamaDemocratsvote-democrat-felonsOBAMA:  On Thursday I will be the first sitting president to visit a federal prison.  While the people in our prisons have made some mistakes and sometimes big mistakes, they are also Americans, and we have to make sure that as they do their time and pay back their debt to society, that we are increasing the possibility that they can turn their lives around.  And if folks have served their time and they’ve reentered society, they should be able to vote.

RUSH:  There you have it.  There you have it, folks.  Do you notice all of the applause lines here.  He says he’s gonna be the first sitting president to go to a prison and he gets a standing O for it.  Who in the hell must be in the audience at this thing?  Well, it’s the NAALCP.  Standing O for announcing you’re going to a prison.  A standing O for talking about (imitating Obama), “they’re Americans, too, they may be whatever.  They’re Americans!  They’re just as American as any conservative is.  And I’m gonna let ’em out.  They’ve paid their debt society and they should be able to vote.”  Yay!  And this is the next bite we have from it.

OBAMA:  We should not be tolerating overcrowding in prison.  We should not be tolerating gang activity in prison.  We should not be tolerating rape in prison.  And we shouldn’t be making jokes about it in our popular culture.  That’s no joke.  These things are unacceptable.

RUSH:  I don’t know, what is he doing there?  We should not be tolerating overcrowding.  We should not be tolerating gang activity.  We should not be — well, who glorifies that stuff?  His donors in Hollywood.  Who the hell glorifies that?  His own people are the ones that make money off doing that.

GOP civil war: Intense crackdown on conservatives

‘This is what the mafia does. This is a political mafia on Capitol Hill’

Garth Kant

WASHINGTON – A civil war is raging within the Republican Party, pitting House leaders against conservatives.

And “fed up” conservatives have now decided to fight back in public.

mafiaA congressional aide tells WND a group of House conservatives will discuss this week how to proceed, but a few of them have already decided to speak up publicly.

One tactic conservatives might employ would be voting with Democrats on procedural motions to derail legislation favored by leadership.

The behind-the-scenes battle broke into open view on Friday when Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., was stripped of his chairmanship of a subcommittee for doing just that: voting against a House rule, in an unsuccessful attempt to slow down the rush to give President Obama virtually unchecked power to negotiate massive trade deals.

gop-betrayal-backstabOne of the striking aspects of Donald Trump’s announcement that he is running for president is the vehemence of his critics – on the conservative side.  

The normally even-keeled Dana Perino almost foamed on the set of Fox News’ “The Five” as she fumed about Trump’s line that he would not only build a wall that only he could build along the Mexican border but he would make the Mexicans pay for it. Over at National Review the normally astute Kevin Williamson went off not just the deep end but the very, very deep end in a column calling Trump – no kidding – a “Witless Ape.” In which it seems that Trump’s style (“the worst taste since Caligula”) and wife (a “ plastic-surgery-disaster wife”) were as offensive as Trump himself, the latter “a reality-television grotesque…grunting like a baboon about our country’s ‘brand’ and his own vast wealth.”

Let’s start with Williamson, whose piece should perhaps be retitled “Witless Writer Jumps the Shark.”

Having worked his way through a spray of bile unworthy of National Review not to mention the normally serious Williamson himself, there was a Williamson presentation of bankruptcy that was either willfully ignorant or maybe just blissfully so. Not to mention, Williamson revealed himself as historically clueless on the subject of presidents and bankruptcy.

And, oh yes. Let’s not forget the panel that appeared on Bret Baier’s “Special Report” the evening of Trump’s announcement. In which “conservatives” George Will and Charles Krauthammer joined liberal Mara Liasson in dissing Trump to substitute host Doug McKelway.

Why would conservative commentators pile on America’s arguably most famous capitalist? And not just pile on, either. This was, both individually in some cases and certainly collectively a full-blown temper tantrum worthy of a two-year old. As Rush Limbaugh observed after reading the NRO piece on air, imagine if Williamson and conservative commentators would expend this kind of energy on Hillary…or Jeb.

Rubber-Stamp Republican Leaders don’t like Patriotic Americans

There is an answer to the “why” however.  An answer that speaks directly to both why Trump’s candidacy resonates – and the visceral nature of the opposition to him in some of these conservative quarters. Not coincidentally it speaks as well to some of the GOP Establishment fury at Senator Ted Cruz when he stood up almost alone against Obamacare. Or the quick dismissals of Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign by the same crowd.

Donald Trump is an establishment GOP political consultant’s worst nightmare. He speaks off the cuff, and he gop-betrayal-rubberstampspeaks bluntly. He could not possibly care less what the GOP establishment, viewing it as he does as corrupt when not incompetent, thinks. Republican and conservative voters who like Trump, like him exactly because he speaks in blunt truths that they themselves believe and lack the forum to say. When Trump talks about his own wealth it is a reminder that he made not a dime of it being a Washington insider. The very fact that Jeb Bush generates news stories reporting that he’s swept through Washington’s lobbying industry like a vacuum cleaner sucking up money for his campaign tells a lot of conservatives everything they need to know about a Bush candidacy and potential presidency – none of it good.

In other words, the same forces that are making the Trump candidacy resonate with the grassroots and are infuriating Williamson and others on the conservative side of the commentary aisle are fueling Jim Jordan and those House conservatives in their increasingly bitter battle with Boehner. To wit, that quote from a Freedom Caucus member:

“Why do 65 percent of Republican voters think Republicans aren’t doing what we said we were going to do? You know why? Because we’re not doing what we said we were going to do.”

Exactly. And Donald Trump—and others like Dr. Ben Carson and Senator Ted Cruz—get it.

All of which explains the real meaning of Donald Trump’s popularity—and that of other outsiders as well. They are the candidates who resonate with the non-Insider base of the Republican Party and the conservative movement.

 

And neither Trump nor the rest are going away.

US Constitution Series 17: Checks and Balances in the Constitution Prevent Abuse of Power

 Checks and Balances in the Constitution Prevent Abuse of Power

 

From The 5,000 Year Leap—A Miracle that Changed the World

By W. Cleon Skousen

A System of Checks and Balances Should Be Adopted to Prevent the Abuse of Power

Failure to use Checks and Balances effectively Causing Problems Today

iobamadictatorJust how difficult this task turned out to be is demonstrated in a number of problems which have arisen in our own day. The failure to use the checks and balances effectively has allowed the judiciary to create new laws (called judicial legislation) by pretending to be merely interpreting the old ones. Failure to use the checks and balances has also allowed the President to make thousands of new laws, instead of Congress, by issuing executive orders. It has allowed the federal government to invade the reserved rights of the states on a massive scale. It has allowed the legislature to impose taxes on the people never contemplated by the Founders of the Constitution. (Skousen, 207-208)

 

Checks and Balances in the Constitution

A number of procedures were tried in various states to protect the will of the people, but they were montesquieumostly ineffective. The American Founding Fathers were impressed by the concept of checks and balances set forth by Charles Montesquieu. They eventually achieved a system of checks and balances far more complex than those envisioned by Montesquieu. These included the following provisions:

  1. The House of Representatives serves as a check on the Senate since no statute can become law without the approval of the House.
  2. At the same time the Senate (representing the legislatures of the states before the 17th Amendment) serves as a check on the House of Representatives since no statute can become law without its approval.
  3. A President can restrain both the House and the Senate by using his veto to send back any bill not meeting with his approval.
  4. The Congress has, on the other hand, a check on the President by being able to pass a bill over the President’s veto with a two-thirds majority of each house.
  5. The legislature also has a further check on the President through its power of discrimination in appropriating funds for the operation of the executive branch.
  6. The President must have the approval of the Senate in filling important offices of the executive branch.
  7. The President must also have the approval of the Senate before any treaties with foreign nations can go into effect.
  8. The Congress has the authority to conduct investigations of the executive branch to determine whether or not funds are being properly expended and the laws enforced.
  9. constitutionThe President has a certain amount of political influence on the legislature by letting it be known that he will not support the reelection of those who oppose his program.
  10. The executive branch also has a further check on the Congress by using its discretionary powers in establishing military bases, building dams, improving navigable rivers, and building interstate highways so as to favor those areas from which the President feels he is getting support by their representatives.
  11. The judiciary has a check on the legislature through its authority to review all laws and determine their constitutionality.
  12. The Congress, on the other hand, has a restraining power over the judiciary by having the constitutional authority to restrict the extent of its jurisdiction.
  13. The Congress also has the power to impeach any of the judges who are guilty of treason, high crimes, or misdemeanors.
  14. The President also has a check on the judiciary by having the power to nominate new judges subject to the approval of the Senate.
  15. The Congress has further restraining power over the judiciary by having control of appropriations for the operation of the federal court system.
  16. The Congress is able to initiate amendments to the Constitution which, if approved by three-fourths of the states, could seriously affect the operation of both the executive and judicial branches.
  17. The Congress, by joint resolution, can terminate certain powers granted to the President (such as war powers) without his consent.
  18. The people have a check on their Congressmen every two years; on their President every four years; and on their Senators every six years. (Skousen, 211-213)

 

George Washington on the Importance of Preserving the Founders’ Checks and Balances System

George WashingtonThe spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power and proneness to abuse it which predominates in the human heart is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position.

The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositories and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern, some of them in our country and under our own eyes.

To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them.

If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.

The Founders’ Device for “Peaceful” Self-Repair

signers3During nearly two centuries that the Constitution has been in operation, it has carried the nation through a series of traumatic crises. Not the least of these have been those occasions when some branch of government became arrogantly officious in the administration of its assigned task or flagrantly violated the restrictions which the Constitution placed upon it. As President Washington indicated, there is a tendency for some of this to occur continually, as is the case in our own day, but when it reaches a point of genuine crisis there is built-in Constitutional machinery to take care of it.

Other Countries lack Means of Peaceful Self-Repair

By way of contrast, we have scores of nations which claim to have copied the United States Constitution, but which failed to incorporate adequate checks and balances. In those countries, the only remedy, when elected presidents have suspended the constitution and used the army to stay in power, has been to resort to machine guns and bombs to oust the usurper. This occurs time after time. What the Founders wished to achieve in the Constitution of 1787 was machinery for the peaceful means of self-repair when the system went out of balance.

 

The Blessing of Domestic Tranquility

church-1Some of us have had to travel or live in nations during a time of turmoil and revolution. Even one such experience will usually convince the most skeptical activist that there is nothing to be gained and a great deal to be lost by resorting to violence to bring about political change. Once a constitution has been established and the machinery developed for remedy or repair by peaceful means, this is the most intelligent and satisfactory route to pursue. It requires more patience, but given time, the results are more certain.

To solve problems by peaceful means was the primary purpose of the United States Constitution.
