 Draining the Swamp is Messy
May 14, 2017 by Michael Master (author of 'Save America Now', 'Rules for Conservatives', 'The Birth Famine')

Our home is in a community of 2,000 homes located on the intercoastal in North Carolina. Everything lives here. Alligators. Water moccasins. Rattle snakes. Sea hawks. Egrets. Giant blue heron. Mosquitoes? blood sucking mosquitoes. We?ve watched from our back porch as dolphins chased sail boats and motor boats up the intercoastal and watched the moon rise over the ocean to cast its glow over the intercoastal.

When the community decided to drain the swamp in the center of the community, it was a big deal.

Draining the swamp was messy. The swamp was about 10 football fields, about 6 feet deep, with lots of creatures living in it. It was a dangerous swamp. Not one that you would walk or swim. You would not dare sit next to it in the dark of a moonless night. If not the snakes, then the mosquitoes would eat you alive.

As the water level decreased, the creatures were exposed. As the water level disappeared, all that was left was 3 feet of yucky black mud and the roots to dying cypress trees. The fish, snakes, frogs, rats, and birds were all stranded in the yucky mud.

Those creatures of the swamp fought for their lives as the swamp disappeared. The fish flopped around in the black mud looking for some water for life. The frogs croaked incessantly all night while their young polliwogs were stranded lifeless at the top of the black mud. Snakes slithered in every direction in the black mud in search of food. The rats that live in hollows all along the water abandoned their nests while the birds that feed off the swamp creatures also abandoned the area.

Finally, the mud dried out. No more snakes. No more rats. No more fish. No more frogs. No more mosquitoes. And no more birds that feed off those creatures of the swamp.

That same thing is happening to the political swamp in America. Trump is draining the swamp. His picks for his cabinet are all swamp drainers. Yeah, 3 are from Goldman Sachs. 3 of 23. Practically all of his cabinet have executive experience (military, or government, or private sector) and it is the executive branch, now isn't it?

The mud is becoming visible as all the creatures who live in the swamp are fighting for their lives. Government employees at the IRS, EPA, and Education are flapping in the mud like dying fish. The lobbyists are slithering here and there looking for government funds like the snakes in the mud ... especially those who wrote Obamacare. The liberal media cartel is chirping and croaking all the time like frogs trying to reverse the draining. The tax and spend politicians are dying off like the blood sucking mosquitoes. The political appointees of Obama are fleeing DC for other jobs like the birds who lost their meal tickets. And the information leakers like Comey and Lynch are looking for new places to nest like the rats that left the swamp. Soon, all that will remain will be the dying institutions like public education as the dying cypress trees of our society.

Everyone who lived off the swamp is praying for rain. Election rain so Democrats might win some elections from Republicans since the Democrats suffered such horrible defeats during the 8 years of Obama. Impeachment rain so the professional politicians can get rid of Trump as the swamp drainer. Low approval rating rain so the media can claim they were correct about Trump. Virtual rain, fake rain, so pundits can claim that Trump is not making any progress even though the results say the opposite.

Draining the swamp is messy, muddy. But the mud will soon dry. Democrats just lost special elections in Arkansas and Omaha after sinking millions into them. Democrats might grab an election here or there in places like Georgia where the demographics are changing to black communities, but not without millions and millions of campaign money ... and Democrats cannot afford to do that for all the elections in 2018. Democrats must defend 23 Senators in 2018 as compared to 10 for Republicans and Democrats must win 25 seats in the US House from Republicans and then win back 900 state legislative seats and 14 governorships. If Georgia is an example, that will cost Democrats hundreds of millions to try.

SCOTUS will be rendering its decisions about Trump executive orders just before the 2018 elections ... and more than likely, SCOTUS will rule against the Obama appointed judges who live in the lower court swamps. SCOTUS will help Trump.

Comey is gone. Lynch is in trouble. Clinton is back in trouble, The Clinton Foundation donors are talking. Clapper and Yates both said that there is no evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians.

Schumer is gasping for rain like one of those stranded fish. His Republican swamp buddies like McCain will abandon him as he dies ? a rat leaving the swamp even though they shared an apartment together. His Wall Street swamp buddies cannot help him. The Washington Post and The New York Times and CNN and NBC are all trying to seed the clouds. But none of it is producing enough rain to help Schumer stop Trump from draining the swamp.

Draining the swamp is loud. Listen to all the hysterical liberal media cartel who are trying to make it rain in order to save the swamp where they live. Chanting. Lies. Rain dances. But no real rain is coming. Only fake rain. The swamp will soon be dry. And when it is, then the next task to make America great again can begin.

Here is a list of the Trump cabinet, with short statements on their backgrounds.

Nobody said all the leeches were on one side of the swamp.

It's funny that the Democrats have no equivalent reference for RINO's in their party.  Their members vote in a unified mindless block, which makes them politically powerful and ideologically weak at the same time.  Kind of like lemmings.

There are a couple of RINO's in my state who's political careers are over, they just don't know it yet.  Their names are Kasich and Portman.
Look for them to join a K Street firm in DC or NY soon.

Thats funny, I have an aunt that has lived off ssa and medicare most of her life who is a republican and thinks people should have to work for a living or starve.

I always hear about the people who say I am not party (dem-rep), I vote for the person.  There is no such thing as voting for the person cause most party members toe the line and most parties will have one or two that don't every once in a while but not enough to make a differrance very often.

I would say throwing the lemming word around would fit most elected people.
Cheers

The swamp will never be drained.  It is comprised of mainly two groups of people who were hired to represent the American people but have never done so.  Once you swim in the swamp you use the viewpoints of both sides to benefit YOURSELF.  This will never be changed unless there is a revolution and then the groups will reassemble and over time continue to do what they have always done.

I recently read Drain the Swamp: How Washington Corruption Is Worse Than You Think by Congressman Ken Buck. There are a few that buck the system. The problem is not Congress the problem is with the voters. If we really want a difference we need to vote people out of office. Another solution is for the states to stand up for themselves and call a constitutional convention under Article V. The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic by Mark R. Levin has some great ideas for constitutional amendments that will significantly help. Unfortunately the third word of the preamble is wrong and the states have never used Article V. to change the constitution. The constitutional convention was because the states not the people called a convention. "We the people..." should be "We the states..."
