Mueller, his DoJ superiors, and their subordinates — first for elimination?

I am by nature, upbringing, education, and professional experience a law-and-order guy. In this space, I have often said that the rule of law and equality before the law are the sine qua non of American liberty and the republic’s social cohesion. I still believe this, but am beginning to think that to save both, we can no longer tolerate a Department of Justice and FBI that are clearly engaged in a lawless attempt to overthrow a legitimately elected U.S. president.

Both institutions are apparently thoroughly corrupt and politically motivated across the country, and at all levels of the organizations. We must utterly reject the crap-filled mantra that there are only a “few bad guys” in both DoJ and the FBI. Anyone familiar with federal bureaucracies knows that grand poohbahs like Sessions, Rosenstein, Mueller, his prosecutors, Wray, Comey, and McCabe never do their own legwork, and so require the services of dozens — if not hundreds — of lower-level officials to do the grunt work, men and women who can be reliably counted on to have no objection to being involved in their seniors’ crimes. When the time comes, the process of elimination in both organizations will have to be wide, deep, and utterly final.

For me, Monday’s savage, 6th Amendment-violating, Stasi-like FBI raid on Michael Cohen’s — President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer — law office, home, and apartment broke the camel’s back. The raiders’ thug-like seizure of all documents and computers in Cohen’s professional and living quarters apparently included all paper and electronic communications between Cohen and Mr. Trump — including those that long predated Mr. Trump’s declaration of a presidential run — and so destroyed any pretense of there being a constitutionally protected lawyer-client privilege for any individual the gangsters at FBI and DoJ intend to destroy, even if the client involved is the president of the United States.

While this unconstitutional DoJ-FBI vendetta unfolds unimpeded, there still has not been a single legitimate investigation, indictment, or arrest in

  1.  The case of Wasserman-Schultz and the Awan brothers in what is one of the biggest espionage catastrophes in the republic’s history.
  2.  The case of Hillary Clinton’s deliberate broadcasting of highly classified U.S. security information to any U.S. enemy who had a savvy teenager on the payroll who could download an unsecured e-mail server.
  3.  The case of the involvement of the Clintons, their hangers-on, and other leading U.S. politicians in Jeffrey Epstein’s island home for the pedophile frolics of the U.S. governing elite.
  4.  The case of nearly half-a-hundred murders by the Clinton team which can be dated back four decades from its murder of Seth Rich.
  5.  The case of the Clinton Foundation and its various appendages which stole most of the massive donations made to help Haitian earthquake victims; peddled diluted HIV serum, probably quickening the deaths of the recipients; and sold 20-percent of America’s uranium to Russia for a c. $150 million bribe to the Foundation.

How many of the homes or law offices related to those five crimes — all of which, unlike Trump’s case, has a credible legal predicate that merits investigation — have been raided? How many of that unfathomably scurvy cast of DoJ-FBI characters have been indicted? How many DoJ and FBI officials — especially Comey and Muellar — have been indicted for illegally leaking information and for covering up the Clintons’ multiple, massive, murderous, and perhaps treasonable crimes? The answer in each case is precisely none. What have the DoJ and FBI had time to do lately, aside from unconstitutionally tormenting Trump? They are investigating the massive threat to U.S. national security present in a number of two-bit corruption cases involving college basketball.

Enough is enough. The path back to the rule of law, and equality for all before the law, lies, I fear, in the destructive extra-legal activity Jefferson and his colleagues recommended in the Declaration of Independence for use only in instances when the republic’s liberty and laws are in extremis. There is little reason for any American to think his or her voice — unless that voice emanates from a rich liberal, a sexual deviant, a movie star, a well-scripted, adolescent tech giant, or an ANTIFA or BLM terrorist — has any traction whatsoever with the federal bureaucracy, the bipartisan political establishment, or the media.

Clearly, the administration of justice in the United States is now entirely in the hands of a non-elected junta of law-enforcement officials, lawyers, and judges who have seized the absolute monarch-like power of choosing who should be president of the United States, and of removing any candidate who, by some miracle, escapes their pre-election traps and corrupt electoral system and becomes president.

In addition to this astonishing lawlessness, this same gang of people, whose crimes have never been fairly and thoroughly investigated, are also waging war against the 1st Amendment — they praise major social-media providers for censoring conservatives and citizen reporters — and the 2nd Amendment, seeking to make sure they take the tools of rebellion from Americans and thereby nullify Jefferson’s guidance to overthrow by any means necessary any U.S government that is, in reality, a tyranny.

If the advice of Jefferson and his colleagues in the Continental Congress falls a bit short of adequate guidance for those who love the republic and perceive its approaching demise, a quick prayer to the Lord — found in an eternal source of inspiration and resolve — will buck them up and prepare them for the worst. In the 144th Pslam, we find the following petition to the divinity, one in which the Pslamist, seeking support for his efforts, writes,

Blessed Be the Lord, My Rock

Blessed be the Lord my God, who teacheth my hands to fight, and my fingers to war.

My mercy, and my refuge: my support, and my deliverer: My protector, and I have hoped in him: who subdueth my people under me.

Lord, what is man, that thou art made known to him? or the son of man, that thou makest account of him?

Man is like to vanity: his days pass away like a shadow.

Lord, bow down thy heavens and descend: touch the mountains and they shall smoke.

Send forth lightning, and thou shalt scatter them: shoot out thy arrows, and thou shalt trouble them.

Put forth thy hand from on high, take me out, and deliver me from many waters: from the hand of strange children:

Whose mouth hath spoken vanity: and their right hand is the right hand of iniquity.
