The Swamp Remains – An Attack On Syria Is Not Giving Us Our Country Back

donald trump


For many avid and loyal Trump supporters who were his staunchest advocates during the campaign and since, there have been some concerning signals of late, which really began to openly manifest themselves with his attacks against the Freedom Caucus. Others, like the distancing of Steve Bannon or the ascension of Jared Kushner, weren’t so dramatic. But the trend does seem to be towards including the opposition, the establishment swamp creatures he promised to free us of, in government positions and in the substance of policy.

We stuck with Mr. Trump through thick and thin because we recognized that he, in that incarnation, was what America needed and we trusted him to remain true. If we had wanted Lindsey Graham, Jeb Bush or John Kasich as president, we would have voted for them. We didn’t want what they were selling then but now we’re getting doses of it anyway.

Trump critics and war-mongers Graham and McCain are thrilled that President Trump attacked a Syrian Air Base and can’t wait until he does the same thing with Russia. Has Trump at last “learned his lesson” and decided to play by their establishment rules? It is now more unlikely the “refugee” levels will be reduced as we were promised. The refugees, including those disguised as terrorists, are still coming in at the Obama levels when it would be a simple matter to set new vetting standards. The strike on the Syrian airfield could provide the pretext if President Trump wanted to use it, as a “precaution against terrorist, Syrian agent or ‘Russian sympathizer’ retaliation.”

Where there is a will there’s a way to thwart the Islamic conquest lobby if the desire to do so is genuine. Incorporate the same standards and verification that most Americans must go through to get a job or car insurance into vetting and you’d eliminate much of the problem without an executive order. Take the UN out of the screening process or add a secondary “Allstate” screening – put us in good hands with no substandard carriers allowed. None of this would be outside the scope of the President’s authority and it would be quite effective and defensible.

The only illegals presently targeted for deportation are the convicted criminals that Kasich would have likewise excluded from his amnesty. Employers still scoff at laws prohibiting them from hiring illegals and aid and abet them in identity theft without any legal repercussions. If AG Sessions would simply charge a few of these predatory employers and fine or jail them, there would be a scramble for American employees the likes of which has never been seen before.

Many in the silent majority are increasingly fearful of once again losing their voice. Hillary Clinton is back in campaign mode with no indication she has any concern for her future liberty. The Podesta brothers are still open for business selling influence and access. Hussein Obama is organizing and fomenting civil unrest from his secret Polynesian hideout.

Not wanting to be disloyal or perhaps not wanting to deal with the possibility of an unthinkable reality, many Trump supporters tell themselves to be patient, give him a chance, these things take time. The events brought with the passing of time do little to ease their anxiety or to answer the questions, “what’s taking so long?” and “why is this still happening?” We all remember the chants of “lock her up,” orchestrated from the stage of Trump rallies. Why did he go weak on that promise?

Is espionage okay now? Are the identity crimes, the greatest fraud ever perpetrated, of Hussein Obama suddenly not an issue? Sheriff Arpaio’s cold posse delivered an indictment to Congress on a silver platter, where are the hearings? Where is the grand jury? The deep state intelligence agencies appear to be dictating to the President what information he will and will not be provided access to. Why does he stand for it?

Is it acceptable to provide de facto pardons to Clinton and Obama by simply not charging them, when if those crimes were committed by everyday citizens they’d be locked up permanently? Which is worse, President Trump, selling a half pound of marijuana or stealing and selling American secrets and our Uranium to a foreign adversary? Apparently, the answer is the marijuana, because people actually go to jail for that crime.

Please, President Trump, remember who “brung you to the dance.” Attorney General Sessions serves at the pleasure of the President. He agrees with your campaign agenda. Turn him loose, for starters. We want our country back. We want our Donald Trump back.

  1. Your article title tells the facts. Its worse in social welfare communities. Trump reduced funding on welfare now continues the wars in the mid east by wasting more than 120 million attacking Syria. This could supply money to build more than 1000 nice appartments. This provides the democommunists cannon fodder for the next election. I had thought Trump would be a 3 term. As he may, with his violation of UN law, start a war with Russia by showing off our inferior cruise missiles, result with one term and no chance for his children and friends. His attack a violation of UN laws and a violation of our trust. Hopping for better news quickly.

  2. 1) Thanks for your comment, Rick. You speak for many.

    2) Methinks that Trump is compromised. Otherwise he would have acted on at least some of the things that you list. For example, not letting the DoJ charge Hillary with the various crimes that she has clearly committed. He seems to be acting on the gentle behest of Handlers. We need to hope that White Hats in various executive departments – like the FBI – will start acting, and take the initiative out of The Donald’s hands. And he can plead to his Handlers that The People have taken over. Which is what it will probably have to come down to.

    I agree with you Rick and also Kitty – this is now what I understood was coming. In bombing Syria, it was time to show all the enemies we have, that this is no Barack Obama who draws lines and ignores them. I don’t want another war but I don’t believe that is where he is headed. Russia is not dumb enough to get into a pissing contest with the USA, however people like the fat boy in North Korea might think twice about trying any funny business. Healthcare is not governments business, so lets allow across state lines shopping for a policy.I don’t see sufficient pressure on sanctuary cities or mass deportation. However he is one man and I am sure he will get the job done without acting like a dictator.

    I for one do not believe that health care insurance is a proper function of government, but only enables ever higher health care costs. If I were Queen I would simply repeal Obamacare as of a date certain, but enact insurance reforms to enable insurers to offer health insurance across state lines. Form a risk pool for those with pre-existing conditions; those consumers should pay a higher premium and not be a public burden. Most such conditions are self-inflicted anyway. Those who take care of themselves should have Health Savings Accounts and carry only catastrophic health insurance. And one more thing: I still think Justice Scalia was murdered during Obama’s term to allow Obama to choose the next Supreme. Glad that didn’t work out as planned and executed by the Deep State. I trust President Trump to eventually get around to jailing Barack Hussein Obama (Jr.), Hillary Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Jeh Johnson, Lois Lerner and others. Keep calm, he’s only a man, not god.

    Rick, this article proves that you really stand for principle over partisan idealogy…

      Thank you, James

    • Yes, James. Rick really does stand for principle over partisan ideology. Too bad our government doesn’t stand for the same. Too bad the big money establishment means more.

    • James, this article is nothing other than libertarian bullshit. I’m surprised and saddened by this switcheroo crap.

        As the author of what you call “swicheroo crap,” Robert, perhaps you’d be good enough to show me the error of my ways – you can disagree all you want, but I’m not all that anxious to go into another Middle East war based on a weak premise, even weaker than the supposed WMD’s of Saddam Hussein – Not seeing the swicheroo in my position, but there appears to be one in President Trump’s since he campaigned on being against the “stupid Iraq War.” I’m hoping the President isn’t being overrun by the neocon establishment, and I’m actually not a libertarian.

  6. Rick, you do not sound very well today. Lastima!

    • Rick Wells // April 8, 2017 at 6:35 am // Reply

      I don’t feel so great either, catherine – whatever lastima means, more still coming in across the border, more still coming in through the airports, only a few criminals going back and no employer sanctions – it’s not a serious program, from a longtime Trump supporter, from the day he came down the escalator, this is not what we were promised by any stretch.

  7. Excellent article, facts as they are! As a Trump supporter and defender from day 1, I am now called a troll because I want the principles he ran on to be the policies and actions.

    I’ve been holding on to the 3D chess theory as long as I can. Unless I see real health reform-repeal, ALL illegals deported, real tax reform. I may just get off the train.

  8. 63% less illegals came in our country in March.
