My article Time to End the Resistance of the Swamp has been published in the American Thinker. The following are references and remarks to it. (updated on April 30, 2018)
A search warrant is a permission to conduct a search or seizure that would be otherwise illegal under the Fourth Amendment. This permission is given by a court to the executive branch, all power of which is vested in the president. Neither search warrant nor other court order is a permission for federal agents to act against the will of the president. Seizing president’s documents in order to harm the president is illegal.
In 2014, a bestselling conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, whose “2016: Obama’s America” was the second-highest grossing political documentary of all time, was sentenced to eight months of prison (a “halfway house”), community service, psychological counseling (sic!), and 5 years of probation for not observing formalities when donating $10,000 to his friend’s Senate campaign (see the gloating press release.) The prosecution was initiated by the FBI under James Comey and conducted by Obama’s inaugural donor and appointee Preet Bharara. But the investigation that led to the prosecution might had been started by Robert Mueller, who was FBI Director from 2001 to September 2013, when James Comey replaced him. Bharara was the head of the same US Attorney office for Southern District of New York that ordered the illegal raid against the President’s private lawyer. All familiar faces, aren’t they? Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, and two other Republican Senators wrote a letter to Comey, questioning the FBI allegation that the investigation of Dinesh D’Souza was a result of a “routine review by the FBI of campaign filings.” The letter went unanswered because the allegation was obviously false: a routine review is unlikely to yield only one suspect, and most election law violations are referred to the Federal Election Commission, not to federal prosecutors.
This is the story of Kurt Mix, an engineer who worked on stopping the oil leak from the Deep Horizon explosion in 2010. He did not work on the Deep Horizon in months prior to the explosion, so he could not be responsible. But the Department of Justice, headed by Eric Holder, selected him as an easy target for prosecution for the reasons that have nothing in common with justice. In 2012, Kurt was charged with two counts of obstruction of justice (carrying penalty up to 20 years in prison) for deleting text messages from his cell phone, and was dragged through the courts until 2015, when he plead guilty for a misdemeanor charge.
Dr. Roy Spencer wrote about the shooting of the building where he and Dr. John Christy work. Bullets, fired from a rare commando weapon, broke the glass of Dr. Christy’s office. The attack happened in the aftermath of the Orwellian-named “March for Science” that went on April 22, 2017. This event had been organized by the “resistance.” More about this shooting on this site:

This is a tweet by Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, in which he agreed with and promoted an article endorsing a second civil war, with an intent to eliminate Republicans and to establish a one-party system. From the article:
The best way to understand politics in America today is to reframe it as closer to civil war. Just the phrase “civil war” is harsh, and many people may cringe. It brings up images of guns and death, the bodies of Union and Confederate soldiers.
Make no mistake: A reckoning with not just Trump, but conservatism, is coming.
In a few months, Jack Dorsey will be putting his thumb on the scales in the House elections, despite Twitter’s duty to be a politically neutral common carrier of tweets.
The Constitution of the United States, Article II, Section 1: “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. …“
The President cannot be investigated as an ordinary citizen. The President is elected by citizens to protect against foreign and domestic enemies, and against misconduct by government officials, including federal prosecutors. The President is sworn to defend the Constitution. Obviously, the President cannot be “investigated” by those against whom he has to defend it. The President cannot even appear being investigated by them.
Some people ignore the letter and the spirit of the Constitution and imagine that the President, elected to represent all citizens, can be investigated as one citizen. In this interpretation, this citizen has right to be investigated impartially and without regard to his party affiliation and political activity – certainly not the case in Mueller “investigation,” conducted by a bunch of Democratic donors and officials.
