When is being an obstructionist crossing the line?

I understand now why the Trump people are fighting over things like crowd sizes and popular votes. They are in a dog fight with a large and violent and unconstitutional segment of our society.  Some of my “conspiracy” buddies- and I put this in quotes only because it appears they are onto something- warned me and others about the “deep state” inside our government, along with other major elements of our nation, that are hellbent on undermining and destroying and REMOVING a duly elected President, violently or illegally if necessary.  And they do it with the confidence of a Fascist ideologue.  All the while calling the Trump supporters fascist ideologues.  Weird, right?

And yet, there is not doubt this is an all out war on a President, who is only two weeks in office.  Imagine had Americans did the same thing in 2008 because they didn’t like Obama?!

They aren’t lying.

By the way, this is a map of America Trump won. Take out the liberal urban population centers and HRC’s entire campaign was non-existent.

So who is doing this? The answer, sadly, is a good number of Americans and international influences who fear Trump might actually have a point here- that America first is not a bad thing.  The fact they are so violently certain of their ideals is frightening.  Trump’s large victory, and it was large, has ripped off any facade of decency the people behind the effort have as they try to destroy America quietly (led by Obama and his ilk), and exposed the violent underpinnings of what is simply an all out effort to eliminate America from within. Imagine if HRC had made it,  the wounds would have been fatal.

Now some of the people are arguing against themselves and don’t realize it.  Gays are against Trump for no good reason.  He’s trying to save their lives and lifestyles by slowing down the immigration of a culture that murders gays- for simply being gay.  (Pulse nightclub shootings were Muslim on gay attacks.) Militant gays, like the one we have here, would be hunted down and killed on the spot in a world dominated by Islam.  So, next time a gay person gets all twisted up over Trump, he/she should take a minute to rethink  his/her position- or a trip to the Middle East- and consider their good fortune.

Same with the INSANE woman’s movement, which is figuratively and literally melting down over what exactly?  A cad in the White House? Back when WJC was in there, you girls were lining up to see if you could “get you some” of ol’ Billy!  Now it’s the worse thing ever?  Come on!

Now the media is simply out and out lying about Trump at every turn, and when one of the spokespeople makes an honest mistake, they jump in with both feet.  The other day, Kellyanne Conway misspoke calling the break up of a plot in Kentucky a “massacre” and CNN, along with every liberal source in America, ran with that single mistake over and over, and over and over, totally missing the rest of Conway’s message. Or better put, dismissing her message because “she’s the enemy.”  (Seriously, if CNN is in the front row at the next presser, shame on Trump and Spicer.)

They ignore the almost perfect message she sends otherwise, like when being interviewed by Chris Wallace and smoking his weak arguments like an angry wife telling her errant husband EXACTLY what is wrong with him, and him taking it like a wimp!  Here’s that interview. She is so much smarter and better than they all are.  Take the time to watch it.

But the MSM simply will not waiver from their conviction that Trump “must be stopped”.  Because I guess, we were doing so well going in the other direction; arming Iran, freeing terrorists while letting more into our country, destroying the middle class, while enriching billionaires and other nation’s lower class of workers, destroying our way of life, our morality and what was once a common fabric of all of us being Americans rather than divided groups full of self interested activists.

Some lying angry elitists liberals with a TV show. That nobody watches.

Now we expect the Dems to be fighting back. It the hypocrisy that drives normal people nuts.  Schumer is a snake.  The quintessential example of the Serpent.  Not his fault- he’s a lawyer, and a New Yorker, and a corrupt politician.  Like I said- snake.  And I’m wrong, it is his fault.

However, at this point the obstructionist attitude is going a bit far.

The Senate Democrats’ obstruction of President Trump’s cabinet nominees has reached a record-setting level. Yesterday, ABC News reported: “President Trump has more unconfirmed Cabinet nominees at this point in his term than all previous presidents combined.” Senate Democrats have failed to a historical magnitude to offer deference to the president, running counter to what they argued for during previous administrations.

From President George Washington to President Barack Obama, only 10 times has a president’s initial Cabinet nominees remained unconfirmed two weeks into their terms. Never in all of American history has this level of obstruction been seen.

Remember they can get away with this because Trump supporters are working and not marching on Schumer’s office and setting it on fire- like the anarchists are doing everywhere else. The Left/Soros/liberals still setting the narrative. Imagine how quickly ol’ Chucky would get on board if his limo was set on fire like that poor driver in New York!

Maxine Waters, a nutbag liberal, and rich from DC corruption (remember, it’s all about the money and power),  is saying she lives to impeach Trump, even though she can’t explain why- other than she’s pissed HRC sucked as a..I mean lost.

All of this is liberal madness.  But it isn’t a crime.  However, we are now hearing that former Obama administration people are holding classes for federal employees on how to thwart the President’s efforts and not get fired or disciplined. Now think about that for a second, if this had occurred in 2009, which CNN talking head would just have exploded?  That’s a trick question, they would have ALL exploded!  And yet there is a movement to do exactly that.

The weepy bureaucrats at the EPA have rallied and are now setting up their own resistance communication network within the agency. Politico reports:

At the EPA, a small group of career employees — numbering less than a dozen so far — are using an encrypted messaging app to discuss what to do if Trump’s political appointees undermine their agency’s mission to protect public health and the environment, flout the law, or delete valuable scientific data that the agency has been collecting for years, sources told POLITICO.

Fearing for their jobs, the employees began communicating incognito using the app Signal shortly after Trump’s inauguration. Signal, like WhatsApp and other mobile phone software, encrypts all communications, making it more difficult for hackers to gain access to them.

One EPA employee even got a new, more secure cellphone, and another joked about getting a “burner phone.”

This underground resistance effort is also said to be communicating with “former Obama administration political appointees” on their plans. So you can probably expect lots of leaked exclusives about the EPA at the New York Times and the Washington Post, none of which will mention that the former President’s people are passing them the information. In fact, these people are so proud of themselves that they are already leaking their existence to the media before they’ve even done anything.

Imagine for a moment that Hillary Clinton had won the election and a group of partisans at Customs and Border Patrol decided to start an encrypted network to stay in contact with former Trump campaign staffers. I have little doubt this would be considered extreme and dangerous. The word “sedition” would likely appear in print somewhere. If there was any question about cutting the EPA’s budget before, there won’t be now.

Agreed, along with some serious employee reassignments, to places like Fairbanks Alaska to measure snow drifts.

The trouble is the liberal ideological person, who was embedded into the government for a long time cannot allow his or her personal belief system (which may be wrong) to stop them from doing the job.  If it does, they must resign.

When a federal employee turns dissent into disruption and disobedience, then they have crossed a line. If President Trump issues a policy that is legal and with which a federal employee disagrees, they have to carry out the directive. If their conscience forbids them to carry out the policy, they need to resign. The civil service is effective largely to the extent that it is above politics. As the Heritage Foundation explained, “the President needs a full cadre of personnel committed to him and his agenda in the federal agencies that execute the details of national policy.” Once a presidential election is over, federal employees are obliged to respect the results of that election, and carry out the lawful policy initiatives of the president.

If a federal employee doesn’t like the ideological foundation or likely outcomes of a presidential directive, it doesn’t mean that the directive is not legal. It means that the views of the federal employee are in conflict with the views of the president who runs the federal government. In that instance, the solution should not be to resist the actions of the president in their professional capacity as a career civil servant in the workplace. The solution is for that federal employee to honorably resign, not actively or passively hamper the White House.

Unlike the Acting AG, who decided she wanted to act out (and get some publicity) instead of being a professional.  What she doesn’t understand is this isn’t about her or Trump, but over sixty million voters, three thousand counties and 304 electoral votes Trump won.  They are the ones who are insulted by these actions- and there should be a penalty for her and other to act out that way.

What penalty?   I would make it a law- quickly- that if you show up in a mask to protest you get arrested.  You can protest, you can be violent, but when you do, the police will know who you are and hold you accountable.  Trust me, that would cut the violence down to nothing.

This should earn you a rubber bullet to the chest and handcuffs. Take out the fun, they will go home.

Secondly, Trump should quietly move to take the silly union protections from the employees.  Not all, but the ones that stop them from being fired for being freaking terrible employees and even criminals! Let the good people do a good job without having to drag the dead weight of bad employees along with them! (Take the time to read up on the VA for examples.)

Trump is going to be swimming upstream, while under fire, weighed down lead weights hung on him by his own bureaucracy.  He’s going to need to eat his Wheaties. Especially when dealing with fools like this. Remember, they have been told he’s the bad guy, not seen it so far.

In a blog post for Foreign Policy magazine, Rosa Brooks, a former Obama administration official, outlined four ways to “get rid” of President Trump, including declaring him mentally unfit for command or carrying out a military coup.

Brooks is a Schwartz senior fellow at the New America Foundation, which is funded by billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundations. She served from 2009-2011 as Counselor to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy and served as a senior adviser at Obama’s State Department.

Her posting is titled “3 Ways to Get Rid of President Trump Before 2020,” although the piece actually outlines four ways.

In what seems to be a deliberate tactic, Brooks repeatedly questions Trump’s mental stability, claiming that the president’s first week in office “has made it all too clear: Yes, he is as crazy as everyone feared.”

Brooks, who is not a mental health professional, offered no evidence for her armchair psychological evaluation other than citing policies that she doesn’t like.

Remember those optimistic pre-inauguration fantasies? I cherished them, too. You know: “Once he’s president, I’m sure he’ll realize it doesn’t really make sense to withdraw from all those treaties.” “Once he’s president, surely he’ll understand that he needs to stop tweeting out those random insults.” “Once he’s president, he’ll have to put aside that ridiculous campaign braggadocio about building a wall along the Mexican border.” And so on.

Nope. In his first week in office, Trump has made it eminently clear that he meant every loopy, appalling word — and then some.

Brooks listed four ways to get rid of a “crummy” president.

  • Elect him out of office after his four-year term. “But after such a catastrophic first week, four years seems like a long time to wait,” she wrote.

  • Impeachment. However, she lamented, “impeachments take time: months, if not longer — even with an enthusiastic Congress. And when you have a lunatic controlling the nuclear codes, even a few months seems like a perilously long time to wait.”

  • Utilizing a claim of mental instability to invoke the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, which sets the path for the commander-in-chief’s removal if the “president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

  • A military coup. She writes: “The fourth possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”

Military coup.  Where was that idea eight years ago?
