How To Drain The Swamp

How exactly do you go about draining The Swamp? First off, says Liz Wheeler, you can’t successfully drain The Swamp, unless you know where it came from.

The former One America News anchor defines The Swamp, or Deep State, as the Administrative State, composed of government employees and officials in agencies of the Executive Branch of federal government, who are not elected, not appointed, have no accountability to voters, are nearly impossible to fire, yet have the power to impose rules and regulations on we the people.

So how did the Deep State get so entrenched in our government? Short answer: Blame the progressives. They attacked our constitutional government’s enshrined view of limited government, beginning with President Woodrow Wilson and his radical ideas, followed by FDR’s  progressive New Deal and President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, all which damaged the separation of powers envisioned by our founding fathers and empowered Swamp creatures to rule behind the backs of our elected officials.

Wheeler says firing these leaches won’t solve the problem and neither will one President. The answer to fixing the fundamental problem requires the Legislative Branch to stop delegating power to executive agencies and for the judiciary to reject the Administrative State on a Constitutional basis. Problem is, members of Congress–both Democrats and Republicans–don’t want to drain The Swamp. Here’s more with Wheeler.

Nixon Uncensored

Digging deeply into the political archives, we uncovered highlights of a 1982 CNN “Crossfire” interview with former President Richard Nixon, including uncensored comments during a commercial break. The interview was conducted by Pat Buchanan, who later became a special consultant to Presidents Nixon, Ford and Reagan. He unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for the presidency in 1992 and 1996.

In his characteristic no-nonsense manner, Nixon lauds the Kennedy brothers, calling Ted the best politician of the three and, in an unsuspecting moment during a commercial break, he takes a shot at President Johnson with some choice words. Tune in to this classic interview with our 37th President, courtesy of CNN.
