It seems that the harder the president’s enemies work to destroy him, the more their own wicked ways are uncovered!
Since Donald Trump became president, a dangerous level of corruption has been exposed in America’s federal government. Officials within several powerful government agencies have worked actively to sabotage Mr. Trump and overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election. This is treasonous behavior, and a bigger threat to America than most people realize!
The facts reveal widespread complicity within the cia and the Justice Department, including the fbi, along with other government agencies, with direction from the White House—and total support from the mainstream media. We see that the Obama administration got a frightening degree of control over those agencies. And we see officials who consider themselves above the law, who are willing to use deceit, slander and practically any other means necessary to hold or to reclaim power at any cost.
To make this reality more alarming, none of it would have seen daylight had Mr. Trump not won the election. But God wanted it exposed—and I will explain why.
Now, it seems that the harder the president’s enemies work to destroy him, the more their own wicked ways are uncovered.
Robert Mueller ran a massive investigation for two years into whether President Trump colluded with Russia. He found no wrongdoing by the president—but he inadvertently unveiled a great deal of corruption by the president’s enemies!
Now the new attorney general, William Barr, is doing some investigating of his own. So we are going to learn even more about just how deep the rot goes.
It seems the harder the president’s enemies work to destroy him, the more their own wicked ways are uncovered.
The Obama Legacy
When Barack Obama became president, he said that he wanted to fundamentally transform America. He succeeded on a dangerous scale.
The damage his administration did to this country is immeasurable.
The Obama administration had a vice-grip on the law and intelligence departments. It authored scandals like Fast and Furious, which put guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. It used the Internal Revenue Service to target conservative organizations. It used its intelligence infrastructure to spy on journalists and other media members. It abused law enforcement powers to punish political opponents and expand its power. And as it became clear, it spied on the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. It was an attempt to stop Mr. Trump’s campaign to win the Republican primary election. Then later it made a treasonous attempt to overthrow his presidency!
That plot continues to this day.
These are just a few of its deadly abuses of power—to say nothing of the racial strife it stirred up, and the cultural and moral decline it encouraged.
During Obama’s second term, Peter Strzok was chief of counterespionage at the fbi. He led the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server, and also the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. At the same time, he was having an affair with a colleague named Lisa Page. The two exchanged text messages during both investigations that revealed a sinister double standard: a clear bias in Clinton’s favor and against Trump. Their texts also revealed that White House officials—even President Obama—were seriously interested in the investigations and directed them.
After an Aug. 5, 2016, meeting, just a few days after the Trump-Russia investigation began, Strzok texted that someone at the meeting said, “The White House is running this.” It’s unclear whether this referred to the Clinton e-mail investigation or the Trump-Russia investigation, but either would have been unlawful. And on Sept. 2, 2016, as the fbi was filing reports about the Clinton e-mail investigation, Page texted Strzok: “potus [President of the United States] wants to know everything we are doing.” If President Obama wanted to be involved, how do you suppose that would affect the investigators, knowing they had the backing of the highest office in the land?
This shows there was a clear political motive guiding the nation’s lead investigative agency.
This should alarm every American! The Justice Department, including the fbi (one of the doj’s agencies), is duty bound to be impartial. fbi officials are to uphold the standards of the bureau and apply the law equally and justly, not use their power to alter politics.
Not only that, but President Obama promised many times that he never got involved in Justice Department matters. His staff repeatedly emphasized that his administration scrupulously avoided even the appearance of political interference in investigations. Those same officials said they never directed the fbi to open investigations. They didn’t interfere period, they said.
The texts between Strzok and Page tell a different story. Aside from exposing the bias of the investigators, they show that the Obama White House wanted to be involved and had even been directing how the fbi handled the two biggest investigations in modern U.S. history!
Despite that fact, in April 2016, President Obama told Fox News’s Chris Wallace, “I do not talk to the attorney general about pending investigations. I do not talk to fbi directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line and always have maintained it …. I guarantee it.” That was a rank lie! This from the man who said in 2012: “You know I tell the truth.” He and his staff repeatedly lied, and most people just believed them. Those individuals are heavily influenced by the father of liars (John 8:44).
On Jan. 5, 2017, just days before Trump’s inauguration, President Obama gathered his top intelligence leaders to discuss how to continue the investigation into Trump even after he took office! Donald Trump was about to become their boss and could have shut down their investigation and fired all of them had he known about it. So they strategized about how to downplay it, assure him he wasn’t a target, and caution him that interference with investigations could bring accusations of obstruction. Just before Mr. Trump’s inauguration, the Obama administration obtained a new court warrant for90 more days of spying. And their primary target was the president. Even though there was no verified evidence of a crime.
The cia looks for terrorists overseas. However, more recently, it has been looking for terrorists in the Trump administration, accusing the U.S. president of being a Russian agent. When Trump came to office, nearly all of these powerful intelligence agencies were being used against him!
The whole investigation into Mr. Trump was based on a fraudulent, unverified dossier that was paid for by Hillary Clinton and her supporters. That was how these people obtained warrants to begin spying on Carter Page, a man in Trump’s presidential campaign who never was convicted of anything. Then they used that phony dossier to rally the media and radical Democrats. It was all an attempt to somehow overturn the election and overthrow the president!
It was treason of the highest kind.
The federal agencies the Obama White House weaponized wield incredible power. If they are not held accountable, then what is to stop them from being used against the very people they are meant to protect?
Joe Biden, who is now running for president, recently told the View that in his eight years of serving with Mr. Obama as vice president, he was most proud of the fact that there was not even “one single whisper of scandal.” Yet those eight years were filled with scandal! And worst of all, they were laying the groundwork to overthrow their successor.
The federal agencies the Obama White House weaponized wield incredible power. If they are not held accountable, then what is to stop them from being used against the very people they are meant to protect?
They wanted to overthrow the law and government of the land. Robert Mueller, along with his cadre of unelected, extremely biased lawyers, were attempting to overthrow the man who received the votes of 63 million people. That is treason!
They did it without any real evidence of a crime!
The way these officials are evading their responsibilities and disdaining the law is extremely dangerous. It undermines the pillars of the rule of law and of freedom in this country! It is turning America into the sort of despotism that plagues dysfunctional nations all over the world!
The media are supposed to help expose and constrain such abuses of power. But the mainstream media was fully complicit in this treasonous plot! Those agencies could never have pulled off what they did without the mainstream media’s fervent support. The media are not fulfilling their traditional role as impartial observers and watchdogs. It’s not about finding the truth or getting the message out to the people. They are casting truth aside. They had a political agenda in lockstep with Barack Obama. These people are treasonous to their own country!
The radical left, which is essentially a satanic attack on this land, has grown in power. Now it seems about half of the country accepts many of their lies.
Radio commentator Rush Limbaugh made this insightful statement last September regarding the way the radical left is treating President Trump: “An obsession has gotten hold of these people. There’s almost like a demonic possession that has come over these people. It’s becoming increasingly difficult, nigh on impossible to even describe, much less comprehend.”
In Washington, D.C., is the Supreme Court building, where judges are to interpret the law. In the same area are buildings for the cia, the fbi, the Justice Department, the State Department, the Pentagon and others. Most of them were built during and after the Great Depression, when they had a lot of manpower to use, so they built some truly impressive structures for the government.
Revering the Law
On February 14, William Barr became United States attorney general. He seemed to come from nowhere. The timing of his nomination, hearings and confirmation is interesting. He was nominated by President Trump on Dec. 7, 2018. His confirmation hearings occurred on January 15 and 16, 2019.
Mr. Barr was already attorney general once before; it is remarkable that he would take the job again. He is only the second man to serve two separate terms as attorney general; the first served back in the mid-19th century.
Barr loves the Constitution and understands it as few men do. During his confirmation hearing, he said he reveres the law. It has been a long time since America has had someone like this in the Department of Justice. It is refreshing to have someone praise and uphold the law at a time like this! This should be uncontroversial—but in a way, it has challenged the whole government structure in Washington!
Barr is very concerned about what Obama-era officials did to Donald Trump. He sees that something terribly wrong has been going on. He wants to understand why government officials were spying on an incoming president. He wants to know why the doj withheld information from the president regarding what the Russians were doing and regarding its investigation of him. Mr. Barr chose John Durham, a prosecutor who specializes in corruption and has a reputation as a “hard-charging bulldog,” to look into the origin of the Russian investigation. That has a lot of people on the Democratic side nervous, as it should! When you begin to apply the law, as Barr is, lawbreakers get nervous.
On June 8, 2018, William Barr sent a 19-page memo to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that stunned the Mueller team. It is a masterpiece about American law.
Obstruction of Justice?
The U.S. Code §1512 defines obstruction of justice. Subsection © says someone is guilty of obstruction when he “corruptly (1) alters, destroys, mutilates, or conceals a record, document, or other object, or attempts to do so, with the intent to impair the object’s integrity or availability for use in an official proceeding; or (2) otherwise obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so” (emphasis mine).
Mueller essentially took that final clause to include anything the president might do that could be interpreted as even influencing an investigation. He plucked it out of its context about a witness tampering with or destroying evidence, and turned it into, in Barr’s words, “a free-standing, all-encompassing provision prohibiting any act influencing a proceeding if done with an improper motive.” This cannot possibly be what the clause means, because that would make it impossible for the president to do his job!
The president of the United States is the head of the executive branch of government. “The Constitution vests all federal law enforcement power, and hence prosecutorial discretion, in the president,” the Barr memo states (his emphasis). “Under the Constitution, the president’s authority over law enforcement matters is necessarily all-encompassing”—including the powers of appointment, removal and pardon.
Mueller said that one clause criminalizes otherwise lawful actions the president would take, such as firing someone or shutting down a case. Barr argues that this “would impermissibly infringe on the president’s constitutional authority and the functioning of the executive branch.” The idea that “any act that influences a proceeding” is criminal obstruction would completely bind the government of the land! “[T]he Constitution vests plenary [or full and complete] authority over law enforcement proceedings in the president, and therefore one of the president’s core constitutional authorities is precisely to make decisions ‘influencing’ proceedings,” Barr wrote.
“The crux of Mueller’s position is that whenever the president exercises any of these discretionary powers and thereby influences a proceeding, he has completed the [guilty act] of the crime of obstruction,” Barr wrote. “To establish guilt, all that remains is evaluation of the president’s state of mind to divine whether he acted with a ‘corrupt’ motive.” Mueller believes that if he can find a “corrupt” motive in the mind of the president, then the president is guilty of obstruction.
This is diabolical reasoning that would destroy the president’s authority to enforce the law!
That is not the way the law works. These men who are bringing down America are psychoanalyzing people, searching for corrupt motives. But that isn’t the way the law is; it deals with clear and specific actions.
These men think they can “divine” whether Trump acted with a corrupt motive. That is a well-chosen word William Barr used, and it really is appropriate for what they are doing. It means “to prophesy, to guess, to find out by intuition.” Mueller thinks he can perceive corrupt motive based on intuition—and is basing his case against the president of the United States on intuition! Ludicrous! And he has over 15 lawyers who have an extremely biased, even hateful, view of President Donald Trump. How could these radical-left lawyers ever reach a just verdict with their intuition? As Barr wrote, “[I]f a doj investigation is going to take down a democratically elected president, it is imperative to the health of our system and to our national cohesion that any claim of wrongdoing is solidly based on evidence of a real crime—not a debatable one.” How true!
Barr continued, “Mueller seems to be claiming that the obstruction statute effectively walls off the president from exercising constitutional power over cases in which his own conduct is being scrutinized. This premise is clearly wrong constitutionally. … The Constitution itself places no limit on the president’s authority to act on matters which concern him or his own conduct. On the contrary, the Constitution’s grant of law enforcement power to the president is plenary. Constitutionally, it is wrong to conceive of the president as simply the highest officer within the executive branch hierarchy. He alone is the executive branch. As such, he is the sole repository of all executive powers conferred by the Constitution. Thus, the full measure of law enforcement authority is placed in the president’s hands, and no limit is placed on the kinds of cases subject to his counsel and supervision.”
It is refreshing to see America regaining some sense of sanity thanks to an attorney general who honors the law and the Constitution.
Beyond all this is the issue of whether President Trump could even obstruct justice if he didn’t commit the initial crime, collusion with the Russians. Mueller found no evidence of collusion. And since Mr. Trump didn’t collude, then he had nothing to cover up. William Barr addresses this issue as well: “[I]f an investigation was bogus, the president ultimately had legitimate grounds for exercising his supervisory powers to stop the matter.” President Trump wasn’t obstructing justice; he was trying to destroy a witch hunt that was wrong and evil. Barr concluded, “Either the president and his campaign engaged in illegal collusion or they did not. If they did, then the issue of ‘obstruction’ is a sideshow. However, if they did not, then the cover-up theory is untenable.”
Mr. Mueller is called “Mr. Integrity.” But is that true? These men are so self-righteous they can’t see any problems with themselves. Their reasoning is right out of the mind of the devil!
Last year, newly fbi-released documents showed that back in 2002, when he was fbidirector, Mueller opposed pardons for four men whom the fbi had wrongfully imprisoned for decades—because he didn’t want the bureau’s misconduct exposed. For political purposes, he purposefully let those innocent men rot in prison! Two of them died there. The other two exposed what happened and successfully sued the U.S. government for $102 million.
Who wants to live in a world where evil men will jail you and leave you there to avoid exposure? They act like they are full of compassion. These unelected men parade themselves as if they know everything and can lead the country competently. But in reality, their thinking and actions are diabolical!
Many Democrats thought Mueller would be able to prove absolutely that the president obstructed justice. That was Mueller’s goal. But Barr somehow understood what Mueller was doing and produced this memo, a masterpiece of law-based reasoning that exposed and condemned everything they were doing. Then Barr became attorney general, and Mueller was made to look like a fool! Between that memo and Barr’s quick ascension to attorney general, the Mueller team had to change their strategy.
Mueller’s efforts were part of the deep state that flowed from President Obama’s administration right into Mr. Trump’s presidency. Those unelected lawyers think they know better than everyone. I think God set them a trap—and then shredded the case for obstruction that Mueller was trying to prove. That is part of God temporarily saving America by the hand of Jeroboam.
Now they are being pursued by a man who reveres the law and loves the Constitution. I believe we are going to start to get an even clearer view of the rot that was there, and it will be significantly cleaned up! There are already whistle-blowers who see what Barr is doing and are coming forward to reveal the wrongdoing they are privy to.

Why is it that so many survival foods come from a time long forgotten? Some of the most well-known survival foods are so old, it's hard to even peg their origin. They are often so effective that people of different nations figured out similar foods along their way.
The reason for this is simple. Every good survival food must have five certain features:
1. Minimal Ingredients - Survival foods should have very few ingredients. The fewer things that go into it, the fewer things that can spoil (and usually, the easier it is to make). Also, you can replicate these foods more easily if there are fewer ingredients...
