"Rook" has some thoughts on the democratic effort to dethrone President Trump. Every new POTUS gets to bring in a Cabinet Secretary for every major Department of the federal government in order to make his Administration function smoothly and efficiently under his leadership. The democrats have been dragging their feet in Senate confirmations and have managed to make the POTUS appear to be less than competent in some areas. This is a mean-spirited political ploy that does not have the interests of the nation in mind. After the Secretaries are confirmed they must each appoint key personnel to manage their department, some of which also require Senate confirmation. The democrats' ploy of slow-walking everything has the effect of hindering the operation of the government. Most people know this.
What most people may not know is that over the last eight years Obama has made an Herculean effort to place as many left wing fellow-travelers in key positions at every level of the Civil Service as could be arranged. DOJ lawyers, FBI Agents, Intelligence Analysts and Managers, IRS Directors, Supervisors and Special Agents, Foreign Service Officers, Congressional staffers....well, you get the picture. What is their agenda?
At the direction of key democratic operatives, they find and leak any confidential or classified information that will bring discredit or embarrassment to the Trump Administration. They also "leak" fake news to their left wing fellow-travelers in the media, who happily put out the fake news and then feign ignorance - after the damage is done. Subsequent investigations of the leaks are subverted and the results are delayed too long to have any effect. Obama stayed in the DC area for one purpose only: to continue to do as much damage to the nation as he possibly can, by quietly leading a civil war against the Trump government and limit the GOP to one term.
Obama's "soldiers" have infiltrated throughout the ranks of the government and may very well be unstoppable. But they will definitely win if we ignore what they are doing. We must fight back and expose every subversive action for what it is. We must form our own independent investigative teams to root out leaks and other kinds of subversion, with persistence and bulldogged bite. Only then will we have a chance to succeed against these saboteurs.
