Chuck Todd Lays Out the Real Democrat Goal: Rule by Unelected Bureaucrats

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

America is prospering again; America is at peace on a scale not seen in modern times; and the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies can’t stand it.  – Do you want to be governed by the people you elect to the executive and congressional branches of government? Or do you want to be ruled over by a vast administrative state occupied by millions of unelected and largely unaccountable bureaucrats?

That is the real question facing our society today, and NBC’s Democrat activist masquerading as a “journalist,” Chuck Todd, made his preference crystal clear today. In an interview with slow-witted Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Todd attempted to lead his interviewee into buying into his obvious belief that the DOJ simply cannot be managed by political appointees put in place by an elected President:

“Are we at the point where we can not trust a political appointee to be in charge of Justice? Do you have to change the way we do this, create more of a CIA/FBI/Federal Reserve approach to appointments for Attorney General? Figure out some distance from the executive branch of some sort?”

In posing that particular loaded question, Todd illustrates the totalitarian mindset among the political left, a mindset that has formed the foundation of every one of the major hoaxes the Democrat/Media propaganda complex has mounted against Donald Trump, and is now in the process of mounting against Attorney General William Barr, as I discussed this morning.

Writing at The Federalist, the great Mollie Hemingway laid it out this way in a terrific piece:

So much of the  drama of the last three years of the Trump administration is about the conflict between the Constitution, which requires political oversight of the bureaucracy, and the Resistance’s strongly held view that political oversight of the administrative state is evil.

The Russia collusion hoax was perpetrated by bureaucrats who admitted they were motivated by a a belief that their foreign policy vision was more appropriate and legitimate than the one chosen by the American people when they elected Donald Trump to be their president.

Likewise, the Ukraine impeachment effort was ginned up by a group of bureaucrats who wished that President Trump had followed their “interagency consensus” rather than his foreign policy vision. And the latest Resistance-created drama is about whether Attorney General William Barr should continue to let agents do outlandish things as part of their now-debunked Russia collusion theory or exercise any oversight whatsoever.

The Democrats and their corrupt media toadies, like Todd, have spent the last four years trying in vain to make the case that America should be ruled by a permanent, leftwing/globalist Administrative State, not governed by the officials who are actually elected by voters.

The Administrative State prefers U.S. involvement in endless wars in the Middle East and Africa; it prefers a U.S. economy hamstrung by endless, abusive regulatory strictures; it would leave the Ukraine defenseless against Russian aggression; it wants endless chaos at our southern border caused by illegal immigration, human smuggling and the drug trade; it favors the redistribution of American wealth to the rest of the world through globalist arrangements like NATO and the Paris Climate Accords and one-sided trade agreements and Obama’s Iran deal.

This is the very heart of the war President Trump has been fighting, almost alone, against the D.C. Swamp. William Barr’s apparent support of the Trump view in this war is why Democrats and fake journalists like Chuck Todd are mounting this new hoax against him.

If America is to survive as a constitutional Republic, it is a war that Trump and Barr must win.

That is all.

Watch Attorney General Barr School Sheldon Whitehouse on ‘Spying’

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In today’s senate hearing, goofy Rhode Island Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse decided to waste his time regurgitating the tiresome Democrat/media fake outrage talking points about Attorney General William Barr’s use of the word “spying” in a House hearing a couple of weeks ago to describe the FBI’s “surveillance” (actually, spying) of the Trump Campaign and Transition team during 2016.

What followed was a thing of beauty – a public spanking of epic proportions that Whitehouse will now have to take to his grave.  Here’s a clip, courtesy of Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra:

Here’s the transcript for those of you who still like to read.:

Sen Whitehouse:  In the entirety of your career at the DOJ, including as AG, have you ever referred to authorized department investigative activities officially or publicly as spying?

Barr: I’m not going to abjure the use of the word ‘spying’. My first job was in the CIA and I don’t think the word ‘spying’ has any pejorative connotation at all. To me (Whitehouse interrupts) To me the question is always whether it’s authorized and adequately predicated spying.

I think ‘spying’ is a good English word that in fact doesn’t have synonyms, because it  is the broadest word incorporating really all forms of intelligence covert collections. I’m not going to back off the word ‘spying’, except I will say (Whitehouse interrupts again) that I’m not suggesting any pejorative.

I use the word frequently, as do the media. (Whitehouse interrupts again)

Whitehouse: When did you decide to use it – was it off the cuff in the hearing that day, or did you go into that hearing intending to use the word?

Barr: It was actually off the cuff, to tell you the truth, and when [the congressman] challenged me and he said “change your language” I was actually thinking, what’s the issue? I don’t consider it a pejorative.

But frankly, we went back and looked at press usage, and up until the faux outrage a couple of weeks ago, it’s commonly used in the press to refer to authorized activities, such as referring to the FISA court (Whitehouse desperately attempts to shut him down) as the ‘spy court.’

Whitehouse: But it’s not commonly used by the department (tries to shut Barr down).

Barr: Well, it’s commonly used by me.

God, I love this guy.
