This should enrage every American

February 5, 2018

Originally I planned to open the show with a review of the President’s State of the Union address this past week, in which he recited a litany of accomplishments of the first year, such as the lowest unemployment levels ever of black and Hispanic workers, and the increase in pay, bonuses, and 401K retirement plans resulting from a rapidly rebounding economy. The President also placed major proposals on the table, many policy issues that Democrats have demanded and begged for, such as paid family leave, funding for infrastructure, and a generous plan for allowing children brought here illegally would stay here and even have a path to citizenship—in numbers 3 times greater than even the Democrats asked for.

Throughout the speech, the Democrats sat and remained silent. They failed to even applaud for statements in support of the National Anthem, the national motto “In God We Trust” or to salute the families of young people murdered by the gang MS-13. At one point, as member chanted USA, Congressman Luis Gutierrez bolted from the chamber, apparently triggered by such an outward celebration of America. But despite so much to talk about from the SOTU, the release on Friday of the long-awaited memo from the House Intel committee demands that we explain its significance.

Now that the memo is released, we clearly know that at the highest levels of the FBI and Dept of Justice, officials used a document that was created by a former British spy and paid for by the Democrat party and the Hillary campaign to obtain FISA warrants that allowed them to conduct surveillance on officials in the Donald Trump campaign. The material itself was manufactured and bogus, and was nothing more than $10 million worth of political opposition research created by Fusion GPS, a political research company. One of the employees of Fusion GPS was Anita Ohr, the wife of Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr. At the highest levels in what should be our premiere and most trusted law enforcement agencies, paid-for-political propaganda was used to conduct surveillance on a candidate for President who in fact became President.

This matters so much I may not be able to fully impress upon you how vital this should be to EVERY American. For over a year, we’ve been told that the Russians tried to interfere in our election of 2016, even though not one scintilla of evidence has surfaced that they were able to change even one vote. But what we now know and which should make us sick in our stomachs, is that it was our OWN government that was trying to interfere with and change the outcome of the election. Let that sink in. People who have badges and guns and the power to take away your very life and liberty abused the law and your liberty and colluded with political operatives to discredit and destroy President Trump.

I don’t care if you are a Democrat or a Republican—this should enrage every American. The fact that a warrant was obtained by using false information should result in criminal prosecution for those in our government who knowingly lied or omitted crucial information to a FISA Court judge.  Because this is the equivalent of a local cop planting a gun or drugs on an innocent citizen and sending them to prison.

If you can be targeted and prosecuted or persecuted and deprived of your life and liberty by dirty cops, this isn’t about losing an election—it’s about losing our Constitutional protections and losing our very Republic. This makes Watergate look like a fraternity prank. I’m disgusted, I’m disappointed, and I’m frankly seething with rage that people that we paid and trusted used their power to play out their personal politics and tramped the Constitution doing it.

We cannot and must not sit still for it. I feel bad for the men and women of the FBI who are overwhelmingly honest and honorable. I feel pure contempt for the dirty and sleazy officials who rose to the top of federal agencies, but who decided to crawl to the bottom of human decency.

    Agreed; one bad apple spoils the entire bunch. Let's hope they go after the Clinton's; the foundation; Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Obama for their illegal participation in all of this as well. Giving the orders as well as those doing the deeds are equally responsible.

    I am a 75 year old great grandmother and I am enraged, but I really don't know which way to turn. As you have noticed our "new" Democratic Senator from Alabama did nothing about draining the swamp just added to it. He has already proven his true colors by voting for abortion and also by not respecting our President's speech. I know people were afraid to vote for Judge Roy Moore. But I tried to tell them that abortion was such a horrible thing. I do know that God is in control but I just cannot understand the audacity if some people like the so called movie star calling for a civil war this morning. Why can't they be charged with inciting a riot, treason or something. This has to stop!

    These accomplishment you cite, "such as the lowest unemployment levels ever of black and Hispanic workers, and the increase in pay, bonuses, and 401K retirement plans resulting from a rapidly rebounding economy," are almost entirely the result of President Barack Obama's policies...

    I don't believe "liberty" means as much as it once did. People are now willing to give up their liberty for government programs and excuses to rely on the government to do for them. Our people today don't realize that our forefathers didn't fight for freedom. They were already free as British subjects; they could decide on their education, careers, where to go, what to do, etc..... What they didn't have, and what they fought for, was liberty: freedom from government control over their lives and the right to choose and operate that government. We should fight for the same rights today; however, we relinquish that right when we fail to stand up to legislative judges and a Democratic Party which violate those rights at every turn. I stand with you Mike!!!!!

    It seems to me that as certain people who lust for power continue to advance their agenda towards tyranny, they will not stop until they are stopped by the People themselves. That is precisely why Donald Trump won the 2016 election in the first place. The "Swamp" does not want to be drained (as though nobody thought that would happen?). Donald Trump is a fighter, and conservatives are more and more sick and tired of Republicans who refuse to act like conservatives. The Founders understood that the time might come when evil people might try to enforce tyranny on the People. That's why the Second Amendment was placed in the Bill or Rights, right after the Rights to Free Speech and Religion. I guess I'm just a "Clinger" to use Obama's term. So be it!
