With each successive batch of text messages released between then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and then-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, the evidence supporting a politically motivated Deep State within the federal government spills out into the open.
Based on my own experience, this particular set of text messages is the tip of the iceberg. While serving on the House Oversight Committee, I saw firsthand how those in control of our bureaucracy brazenly abuse their power – spying, manipulating and misleading – in an effort to perpetuate their stranglehold on the government.
What I witnessed and wrote about in my new book –“The Deep State: How an Army of Bureaucrats Protected Barack Obama and is Working to Destroy the Trump Agenda” – was a bureaucracy that allowed agencies to become weaponized in the service of political battles.
In the beginning, that meant protecting President Obama by using federal power to target political opponents or by covering the tracks of the corrupt or incompetent within his administration. By the time I left Congress, the Deep State’s focus had shifted to thwarting the administration of the newly elected President Donald Trump.
My first run-in with the Deep State happened weeks after the Benghazi terrorist attacks of September 11, 2012. In an encounter highlighted in my book, I went face-to-face with a lawyer sent to Libya by Hillary Clinton’s State Department to act as a spy and ensure I did not ever get to the truth of what happened on that tragic night.
When I refused to allow this State Department lawyer to participate in a briefing for which his security clearance was insufficient, he immediately called Clinton Chief of Staff and fixer Cheryl Mills to demand entrance to the meeting. His real purpose was to intimidate witnesses from being candid with a congressman.
I won that battle and got the information I sought. But the effort to speak to witnesses, review documents, and debunk the ridiculous and false narratives told by political appointees and perpetuated by their Deep State allies was an uphill battle.
Even with a select congressional committee empaneled to investigate, Congress was never able to pry from the Deep State many of the documents that would have confirmed or refuted the damning testimony of Benghazi’s heroes.
Spying is just one trick up the sleeves of politicized bureaucrats. Powerful senior staffers with authority to classify, resist disclosure, and subvert oversight have perfected other strategies to avoid transparency and accountability.
The Deep State manipulates congressional investigations by pretending to cooperate with document subpoenas. Those who are part of the Deep State bury congressional committees in piles of paper ostensibly responsive to the investigation, and then brag to the media about the number of pages they have turned over.
In reality, many of those pages will either be fully redacted, duplicates of other pages, or irrelevant to the investigation.
The media then dutifully report that the agency has turned over thousands of pages – yet the public gets no answers. Meanwhile, the documents that would actually tell the American people the truth never see the light of day.
Misleading the public about the nature of documents sought either by Congress or through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests is another art the Deep State has perfected. Agencies employ lawyers specifically to find reasons to withhold documents.
In one May 2014 hearing, a TSA sensitive security information director testified that upon being hired, attorneys and FOIA processors trained him to hide information.
The director testified that he was told: “If you come across embarrassing information or whatever, (the chief counsel) will just hide it and come up with an exemption; because if you cover it with a FOIA exemption it’s so hard for the other person to challenge it, and it will be costly and difficult for them to challenge it, and they’re probably never going to see it anyway, so you just get away with it. That’s the way it’s done.”
There are solutions, which I outline in my book. But before we can address solutions, we have to acknowledge the problem.
The Deep State is not just a conspiracy theory. No less than our very system of separation of powers and checks and balances is at stake.
While we still have a president willing to check Deep State power, we must act to stop those who are part of the Deep State from undermining the most successful government in the history of the world.

June 5, 2018 -- A Child Trafficking site was found days ago in Arizona off the I-19. The land is owned by a Mexican company called CEMEX who has locations all over the world. CEMEX was supposed to build homes in Haiti after the earthquake happened but never did. Many children in Haiti went missing after the earthquake. Laura Silsby (who was convicted for child trafficking) worked with the Clinton Foundation to traffic children.
CEMEX is a HUGE donor to the Clinton foundation donating millions and millions of dollars.
Veterans On Patrol first discovered the site a few days ago and now they are working with www.vets4childrescue.org, OathKeepers, and III% - all patriot groups dedicated to the safety and sovereignty of America.
Craig Sawyer is a Marine veteran, former Navy SEAL, sniper, combat instructor. His web site is: www.vets4childrescue.org

Wednesday May 2 2018 - Hannity sits down with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to discuss the witch hunt that Robert Mueller's investigation has become, some new details regarding the Stormy Daniels situation, and more in this special exclusive interview.
April 28, 2018 -- Greg Hunter from USA Watchdog shares his recent interview with former CIA officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp. Shipp explains that everything we’ve been witnessing ever since President Trump was elected is exactly why America is in such danger as a ‘Constitutional crisis’ the likes we’ve never seen in America continues to unfold in the days and weeks ahead.
Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says what is going on with Donald J Trump “is an ongoing coup to remove a duly elected President.” Shipp contends, “This is a huge constitutional crisis like the country has never seen before. This makes Watergate look like a Sunday school class.”
On Friday, Shipp and other retired top officials at the CIA, FBI, DOJ and NSA held a press conference and demanded Attorney General Jeff Sessions prosecute top Obama era officials for obvious crimes against the incoming Trump Administration. Shipp says, “We have a coup within our government right now at the senior levels at the CIA, DOJ and the FBI attempting to unseat a duly elected President who was elected by the American people and remove him from office. . . .This is, at worst, treason with senior officials in the shadow government or Deep State . . . to attack Donald Trump and remove him from office.”
Shipp goes on to explain, “There is essentially a civil war involving parts of senior management and upper parts of our government that is occurring in the United States. It’s between the ‘Dark’ side and the ‘Constitutional’ side. There has never been anything like this in history. It is extremely serious, and this is an extremely serious hour for our government and especially for our constitutional freedoms. . . . This essentially is a global criminal cabal that has penetrated into our government and now has senior level officials colluding and, I would argue, conspiring to unseat this president.”
In closing, Shipp says, “People need to understand that the Democrat Party today is not the Democrat Party of John F. Kennedy. The Democrat Party with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is more Marxist than anything else. They think the Constitution should be a ‘progressive’ document. In other words, the Constitution is outdated and should be redone. They are both directly connected into George Soros, who wants to destroy the sovereignty of the U.S. government. . . . The Democrat Party is now made up of Marxists and leftists that have penetrated that entire organization. . . . Their entire goal is to change our form of government and destroy our sovereignty.”

This episode takes a look at the life and role of Benjamin Franklin.
After the Colonists learn of another new tax, the Stamp Tax, this pushes America even more towards war.
Benjamin Franklin obtains private letters of Thomas Hutchinson and Andrew Oliver, British Governor and British Lieutenant Governor of the Province of Massachusetts Bay. These letters outlined their plan to oppress the American colonists.
The release of these letters caused England to turn on Franklin and Franklin realizes the direction of Tyranny England is going and realizes he wants no part of it. He now realizes he is no longer a Britishman, but now American and supports the freedom Americans are fighting for.
With information from the Colonial spy network, the British is now wanting to take over the high ground of Boston Harbor to secure control of it. This will lead to the famous Battle of Bunker Hill.
Maricopa County Sheriff's Office raids Arizona Valley business and arrests 14 illegal immigrants. People line up outside business for their jobs.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio, following Federal Immigration laws, started cracking down on people illegally working in Arizona, as well as Illegal Immigrants falsifying information to obtain employment. The raid confirmed 14 Illegal Immigrants working at the Prime Cut Meat & Seafood in Phoenix, Arizona who falsified their identity and was arrested on identity theft charges.
About Sheriff Joe: Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a strong supporter on Federal Immigration Laws and protecting the welfare of American Citizens. He defied a judge's court order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. From 2001 to 2010, an average of 1,374 illegal aliens a day were apprehended in the Arizona border sector. This figure does not include those who actually get through. There were an estimated 278,460 illegal aliens working in Arizona in 2011, approximately 9.3 percent of the total workforce.
He was criminally charged with federal contempt of court. In August 2017, President Trump pardoned Sheriff Joe of these charges. In April 2018, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals has assigned a Special Prosecutor against the Pardon of Sheriff Joe. A federal appeals court said it will appoint a lawyer to argue that former Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s contempt of court conviction should remain on his record, despite President Trump’s pardon. This Special Prosecutor appointment is unheard of and another overreach of the Left, with no regard in protecting the United States or it's citizens.

April 17, 2018 An Uber driver accused of raping a woman in the back seat of his vehicle before posting bail and fleeing the country was a national of Ghana who was living in the US illegally.
Frederick Amfo, 30, was ordered held on $10,000 cash bail Friday during his arraignment in Quincy District Court (Massachusettes) on one count of rape. The victim, Emily Murray, said Amfo climbed into the back seat of his car and raped her on April 9.
The judge ordered that if Amfo posted bail, he must stay away from the victim, surrender his passport, and no longer work any other ride-sharing company. He was given 24 hours to turn over his passport — of which during that time he fled the US.
Sabine Durden mother of son killed by an illegal immigrant wants California Governor Jerry Brown arrested for treason.
July 12, 2012 her son Dominic was on his way to work at the Sheriff's 911 dispatch center. An illegal with 2 felonies, 2 DUIs, and was deported previously, drove his unregistered / unlicensed car, uninsured car turning right in front of her son which hit him so hard it threw him into a wall and killed him instantly. The illegal was never charged with the death of her son, and was only charged with a misdemeanor and only served 35 days in jail.
Illegal immigration costs the US over $135 billion dollars a year (current estimates).
Illegal immigration is not only a burden on our environment and our population but also our wallets, especially in tough economic times. An additional financial burden is difficult to handle. The annual cost of illegal immigration is estimated at $135 Billion to our nation's taxpayers. A proposal to allow illegal aliens permanent access to US jobs makes no sense when you recognize that this would keep many current US Citizens from getting jobs.
Not only can illegal immigration limit US workers job opportunities but it can affect their income as well. Illegal immigrants are often paid less than their legal counterparts, leading not only to exploitation, but a lowering of wages and working conditions for everyone. Households headed by illegal aliens imposed more than $28.8 Billion in costs on the federal government in 2009 and paid only $9.5 Billion in Taxes (A deficit of $19.3 Billion).
Many companies that hire only legal workers are forced to compete with companies that undercut prices by hiring illegal workers, threatening to force the responsible company out of business. One of the things which makes this country great is how much we provide for the people who reside here. Even individuals who are here illegally benefit from our tax dollars. Expenditures like educating children, medical care, administration of justice, child care, temporary assistance to needy families, and school meal programs all end up benefiting illegal aliens.
Some disregard these costs, they want to provide legal status to illegal immigrants through an amnesty. What they fail to realize is that this would perpetuate the burden of illegal migration. Instead, policy makers must send a clear message abroad and to illegal aliens here that they will not tolerate illegal migration. This will not only improve national security, but also attack a major fiscal burden. It will provide greater opportunities to today's unemployed and underemployed citizens and legal residents.
(Note: This video is from 2011 where $113 Billion was the estimated burden on the American Tax Payer. That has since increased to $135 Billion.)
Sunday February 4 2018 -- Twice-deported illegal immigrant Manuel Orrego-Savala (also known as Alex Cabrera Gonsales his other alias), killed 2 people. Orrego-Savala's blood alcohol level was 0.239 at the time of the crash — three times the legal limit.
Manuel Orrego-Savala crashed his black Ford F-150 into a car parked along Interstate 70 near Indianapolis. In the parked car was the driver, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, and his passenger, 26-year-old Indianapolis Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson, both killed in the crash.
32-year-old Kathryn "Kate" Steinle was out for a stroll with her father along the San Francisco waterfront, Pier 14, when she was suddenly shot to death by an illegal immigrant. The illegal immigrant, who was not only deported over 5 times and a 7 time felon, kills a young girl and is found not guilty. The jury was never told that he was deported 5 times and had felonies.
Jose Ines Garcia Zarate claims that he "found" the gun on a bench and when he picked it up the gun "accidentally" went off. Guns do not accidentally go off unless the trigger is squeezed. Even if someone is killed "accidentally", this is still considered involuntary manslaughter.

In an unprecedented move, two openly undocumented immigrants now work for the city of Huntington Park. Ben Tracy reports on the reasoning -- and the angry response.
Published on Apr 11, 2018 Florida Sarasota County Sheriff's office said they have arrested an illegal immigrant, Magdiel Medrano-Bonilla, after he struck a motorcyclist during a road rage incident. During the investigation, detectives say they found Medrano-Bodilla's car stripped of its tag, doors and windows. Detectives say they found messages on Medrano-Bodilla's phone that he was planning to destroy the vehicle to avoid criminal charges.
Medrano-Bonilla was born in El Salvador and entered the United States through Texas. The Sheriff's office will communicate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to determine the next steps. “This is another example of people illegally coming into our community to commit crimes.” said Sheriff Tom Knight. “We have had this conversation time and time again but the problem doesn’t seem to be going away. When individuals come into our community and victimize those who live here, I take it personally. Thankfully though, through our partnership with ICE, we have been able to quickly notify their agency and look forward to them prioritizing this case so Medrano-Bonilla will no longer have an opportunity to commit crimes in Sarasota County."
The Sheriff's office released a video earlier of this road rage incident. The motorcyclist hit the window of the Mazda. Medrano-Bonilla's car swerved into the right lane, struck the motorcycle, forcing it to crash off the road, and throwing the motorcyclist to the ground.

The reserved John Adams, now being the target of the increased intimidation of the British army, is realizing the escalation of abuse is affecting everyone. As he sees the quality and happiness of life of the colonists deteroriating, he is losing faith that the King of England cares about the well being of the colonists.
After an enormous tax is announced on all incoming tea to help fund England's wars, the colonists decided to prevent any tea from coming ashore to avoid paying tax which results in the Boston Tea Party.
