One reason why the upcoming election is so critically important is that Trump is still the only one who has both the will and the power to drain the swamp. And new evidence shows that the swamp, particularly the vestiges of Hillary Clinton’s State Department, is deeper and more fetid than we knew. Here’s John Solomon’s latest report.

Do you remember that cast of characters from the State Department –-- specifically, the U.S. Embassy in Kiev –- who came in to testify during those laughable fake impeachment hearings last winter, based on a falsified “whistleblower” complaint about Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine? Remember Fiona Hill, Marie Yovanovich and that group? If so, then you won’t be surprised at all to hear from Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton that newly-uncovered documents show that embassy officials set up what appears to have been an “enemies list” to help illegally monitor and report on the social media postings of President Trump’s family, his lawyer, and journalists perceived as Trump-friendly.

"The State Department hid these smoking-gun documents for months,” Fitton said.

Thanks again to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from Judicial Watch, we know that Solomon himself was one of the ones targeted; along with Fitton; Donald Trump, Jr.; the President’s personal attorney and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani; FOX News personalities Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Sara Carter, Dan Bongino and Lou Dobbs; One America News personality Jack Posobiec; radio host and former Trump White House adviser Sebastian Gorka; and more for a total of 13 Americans.

We learn from the documents that they were using search terms to find out specifically what was being written about Ambassador Yovanovich, George Soros (!!!), and Joe Biden and Burisma Holdings, the corrupt Ukrainian gas company that had put Biden’s son Hunter on its board and paid him handsomely for doing nothing but allowing the use of his name “Biden” on corporate documents.

Here’s a sample communication from former deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent, this one sent on March 27, 2019: “Key thing is to get up to ramming speed from the get-go.” His enthusiastic discussion of the social media monitoring effort seems to have been prompted by John Solomon’s early stories about the embassy’s activities concerning Biden and Ukrainian prosecutors. (This was back when Solomon was reporting for THE HILL; he’d also been on FOX News with these stories. We commented on many such reports at the time.)

Some of the names are still redacted. It would be nice to know who wrote this to Yovanovich, as it seems pretty sneaky: “...I just wanted you to be aware as we are really trying to help them and recognize how hard everyone is working in this especially trying time. The good news is our social media team back here is now helping to provide them with the reports they want when Kyiv is asleep/offline –- through existing PD tools –- so this should greatly help.”

Help WHOM? Who is "them"? The Bidens? And what “existing PD tools” are they using, apparently surreptitiously?

On May 15, 2019, another name in the conversation was redacted, a Digital Media associate for EUR/PD Keniya-Trusant Group apparently offering legal advice, letting them know they had run afoul of the Privacy Act of 1974: “Going to chime in here,” REDACTED said. “So regarding the influencers [Hannity, etc], there are some legal implications of making a list of Facebook influencers or Twitter influencers since they are technically private citizens (even though they’re publicly on the internet) and we cannot compile them into a list and monitor what they are saying using a third-party application without their knowledge. To see what they’re saying, you unfortunately need to use the old school way and manually go to their feeds and view that way. Cumbersome but it’s in compliance with the Privacy Act of 1974.”

I can hear them whining now (no need to “monitor” them): Ah, so our targets are TECHNICALLY private citizens. What an inconvenience –- who knew? Gosh, it’s SO much less cumbersome for us to monitor what they’re saying when we can put them on a list and search for key words. That way, we can be sure and see every word they say about George Soros.

Solomon has talked with some officials who have seen the unredacted memos, and they say some of the redactions offer “additional analysis of the legal issues surrounding the monitoring that occurred.”

I’ll bet they do. One official told Solomon that “Congress may be entitled to see more about the nature of the concerns than was publicly released.” Not to worry about that, of course, as long as Congress is controlled by Democrats, who will bury all of it. That’s one reason why it’s so important for Republicans to gain control of the House again.

Communications employees knew good and well that they weren’t supposed to do things like this. They wouldn’t need some outside legal adviser to tell them about the Privacy Act of 1974. But this is just one of the ways the anti-Trump swamp dwellers were getting their jollies at the State Department outpost in Ukraine in 2019.

If you have some time to go through the 300 pages of still-partially redacted communications, here is the pdf. If anything, it’ll tell you these swamp rats at the State Department had WAY too much time on their hands and that the last thing they cared about was anybody’s rights, particularly if their "enemies" were sympathetic to President Trump. Trump needs four more years to do the serious swamp-draining you know he intends to do, at the State Department and elsewhere.

    UNFORTUNATELY THE RATS IN THE SWAMP HAVE HAD YEARS TO MULTIPLY. JUST LOOK AT PELOSI FOR INSTANCE, HOW MANY YEARS SHE HAS BEEN IN THE****SWAMP*** ALONG WITH HER COMPATRIOTS. THEY'RE OBVIOUSLY TRAINING NEW PEOPLE WHO ARRIVE AS DECENT PATRIOTIC AMERICANS WHO ARE THEN SEDUCED BY MONEY & POWER. HUMANS ARE GIVEN THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE, UNFORTUNATELY HUMANS ARE ALSO KNOWN FOR BEING SELFISH & WEAK.

    How could those "impeachment witnesses" be so sick, what is in their best interests? To be part of a whole new government? Snitches that they are will most likely be expendable along with all of us by whatever government trying to uproot us. Lee Harvey Oswald comes to mind after he defected to the Soviet Union. They played him and allowed him to come back after getting tired of him. Same idea, Please President Trump, do your magic soon!

    BLM Self fulfilling narrative & the China virus:
    1) BLMinc promotes black Americans not to sit down peacefully with other Americans to constructively bring about change, but instead to "confront & riot" because BLMinc fully realize this will lead to more black lives lost right on que! In this way, BLMinc can accelerate and raise those numbers quickly by forcing police to take necessary actions to protect citizens/property which will end up in unnecessary fatalities. The circumstances dont matter, they just need increased fatalities of blacks by police and circumstances be damned. They can fan the fear of racism on Trumps watch and blame him as being divisive which hurts his reelection chances.
    2) China unleashed the virus which has shut down our economy which was the best in the world right before the election and right on que! And it turns out the virus was not as bad as CHINA falsely led us to believe by staging Wuhan. This was pre-planned by them to advance their economy which they did not shut down plus it makes Trump look bad no matter how well he did in managing the virus hurting his reelection chances.

    BOTTOM LINE: I think both these game changing monumental circumstances are either China or world-powers-to-be orchestrated to hurt Trump (a non-swamp creature they can not control) and advance Biden (very definition of swamp ncreature who they can totally control) as Trump has done so well, they had to go to this extreme measures to try to defeat him.

    Thanks so much for your frequent emails. They give me great hopes for the future. I'm also a Rush Limbaugh fan and listen to him every day. On today's show, something really stood out for me. A caller and Rush were discussing Pelosi's being set up at the beauty shop and how the owner of the shop is now being targeted and even receiving death threats. Then Rush said that Pelosi's treatment of the shop's owner as well as the Dem's encouraging the looting and vandalism illustrates that the Dems perceived "caring for the little people" has now gone away. Rush said that for ever and ever the Dems said that they "feel our pain" and make promises before elections on what they will do for the middle class. But after the elections, promises are forgotten and the middle class and especially minorities are ignored by the Dems. But now with the insurrection that is being condoned by the Dems with businesses being burned to the ground, it is openly apparent that the Dems could care less for the people. All that they really want is their power back. I believe that President Trump and GOP need to make this a huge issue - namely that the Dems don't really care for the deplorables, or for that matter even their base who have voted for them in the past.
    Keep up the great work you are doing and may God bless you for your efforts.

    Do you know anything about the soon to be implemented "cashless society"? I understand the Central Banks will soon make it a crime to use cash. Heard this from Andy Snyder of Manyard Press.

    I have been dismayed that our President has allowed so many swamp dwellers to continue, after it was known who and where they were. You think he intends to drain the swamp? His past performance does not give me any confidence that will happen.

    The main reason the Democrats want chaos, rioting and turmoil to abound before the election is because it makes people dissatisfied with the incumbent, President. The Left wants to push all of this misery as blame on our President to lessen his chances of re-election. Until their complicity in the destruction of our country was exposed, the Left was perfectly happy to see others loose their lives and livelihoods through lock downs and rioting. PRETTY OBVIOUS!

    All corruption leads to George Soros. Why hasn't he been investigated and charged under RICO statutes? Why is he still in this country?

    A week or so ago I asked you a question about the company owned by Nancy Pelosi's husband, whether you were aware of the sale of Postal property and his company profited by the sale. I got no response. If this were true it is very illegal, I would think, especially since Nancy is making such a fuss about the USPS right now.

    Just when one thought not having integrity or not being honest was despicable that line of thinking goes to the back of the line to the front of the line spying, treasonous activity, complete corruption into foreign and domestic dealings what we have here is a banana state a third world dark mob of criminal government. Obama and Biden didn't start this activity however they enhanced to the point of no return. The system needs to be purged the network of this mob is so tangled to unravel it will be impossible. It may be to late to put term limits on Congress the 30 year members are so corroded they are beyond repair. Most of the these members have been self serving for decades it is set up to continue with the deal of sending out ballots will insure that only more self serving candidates will be elected. Trump has shared the rewards of America's hard work with it's people Biden and the mob will not. The Moms and Dads today should fear for themselves they should be terrified for their children as a 71 year old I will make it; in 7 years if I live that long it won't make any difference I may end up like Biden not knowing where I am what day it is who my wife is or my siblings are or able to put a sentence together that is coherent, what a bright future under a Biden Administration we would be severely seduced!! and don't forget, forgotten.

    Governor, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is having trouble sleeping! Last night on the local news they showed a graph of the possibilities of the election outcome. First they showed the U.S. as basically red the day of the election; however, they show what could happen for weeks past the election once all the mail in votes and absentee ballots are counted turning the red to blue. If not all counted by January 20, Nancy Pelosi becomes president.

    Well, this turned into a nocturnal nightmare for me! I'm not sure if the mail in votes are a "sure thing" yet, but if they are, why doesn't the president or the voting committee advise that all mail in ballots and absentee ballots must be mailed AND RECEIVED before October 29 at which time they will be disbursed to the counting committees, who will work feverishly over that following weekend to count these votes and have them ready by November 2 to add to the actual in person ballots cast on November 3? Any mail in or absentee ballots received after October 29th will be discarded, and no waiting for election results after November 3rd. The American people deserve to know the outcome of the election before January, 2021 gets here.
