The President And The Swamp...

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

Let me start by saying that I have and do support President Trump.  I absolutely never expected to agree with everything he says or does; however I have questions about the swamp.

I won’t pretend to know everything that a new administration has to get done during the transition between Election Day and Inauguration Day.  It has to be a daunting task.  I also know that DC and the surrounding area is a really big swamp with far reaching tentacles and it takes time to drain something like that, but the White House is a very small pond in that swamp, and from where I sit that part of the swamp still has too many critters that enjoyed swimming with the previous administration and are now undermining the current administration.

One of the biggest offenses are the close associates of Huma Abedin, Valerie Jarrett, and Hillary such as Dina Habib Powell, (a Muslim) and known rat who is the current U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor.  Apparently her only qualifications for the post are her connections to the above mentioned as well as Ivanka Trump.  There are other former “obamabots” who are still allowed to hang on, and that’s where a lot of Americans are getting more than a little rattled.

Instead of talking about “draining the swamp,” how about starting with a little focus on draining the local pond of the White House..?!  During the transition, a list could and should have been drawn up and people like DHP should have been shown the door on January 20, 2017.  Even many of the low level staffers, maintenance personnel, and “domestic” staff should have been scrutinized and removed where need be.  They may not be “important,” but they see and hear things that are valuable to those trying to tear down a leader.

Moving on to the other various parts of the swamp; the Pentagon is a cesspool that has been infiltrated with many from the “lone wolf packs and grapevines” I wrote about recently.  How many Muslims still sit in positions of authority in areas of National Security..?!  Until a foolproof way is devised to differentiate between which are friend or foe, any serious strategist not bound by any p/c insanity would remove any Muslim from any such position or involvement in our military complex starting with the Pentagon, and then down through the ranks.

You have a good man in “Mad Dog,” let him do his job and remove those individuals he knows in his gut he cannot trust.

Every Cabinet/department head should be of impeccable character and be given free rein to remove those who remain loyal to the previous administration or any of its allies.

While I never expected the draining to happen overnight, I certainly believed it would have started by now, and it hasn’t, at least not in a visual, tangible way.

So there you go; President Trump, slogans like “drain the swamp” and “lock her up” cannot go down in history as just slogans.  They need to take place, and people like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Lois Lerner, and so many others need to be investigated like anyone else and be punished accordingly for their insidious crimes.  The blood of their victims from Extortion 17, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and Seth Rich, to name a few, scream for justice.  I might add; Eric Holder is now mulling a run for 2020; good grief, I would hope he is behind bars by then.

The time for talking about it is over.  Drain the swamp and fill the jails; let’s get this done..!
