  • Understanding WA DC Politics 1883-2017

    Despite the host of management and organizational studies, Washington exposés and critiques of bureaucracy very little information is available about the working world, and everyday conduct of the top people in government.

    June 25, 2017 There is no LEFT or RIGHT in my 937th comment, there is only the WRONG that has been progressively committed, against the best interest of American citizens by WA DC POLITICIANS et al, behind our backs, behind closed doors.

    Despite the information available on the internet, very little information has been documented and provided to the working people in America, by the public media on the everyday conduct of the top people in the U.S. government..

    To and for the understanding of a reasonable person, I submit the following

    Aug 14, 2007 – Political executive officers are supposed to guide and control, rather than … 1977. A government of strangers: Executive politics in Washington.

    Overview · ‎Abstract: · ‎Question: · ‎Chapter-by-Chapter Notes

    Overview

    Abstract:

    The book’s main objective is to explore the process by which high-ranking political executives and bureaucrats interact with each other in Washington. Political executive officers are supposed to guide and control, rather than merely reflect, the various interests in the executive branch. However, they are ill-suited to do so: they come to power being strangers and amateurs. Heclo studies the relationship between executives (presidential appointees) and bureaucrats (civil servants). The former are interested in political control, and the latter in policy continuity.

    Question:

    General research question: Can politicians guide what government does by controlling the people who do it? To what extent does appointment power make political control of the bureaucracy possible?

    • What are the implications of the politicization of the bureaucracy for political control (as embodied in political executives) and bureaucratic autonomy (as embodied in high-level civil servants) within the executive branch?
    • How do political executives (interested in political control) and bureaucrats (interested in administrative continuity, bureaucratic autinomy) interact with each other in Washington?

    Answer:

    High ranking civil servants strike a balance between the demands of political executives and bureaucrats. Bureaucracies pit the ambitions and plans of career bureaucrats against those of political appointees, who are at an organizational and informational disadvantage. Because the process of career advancement of high-ranking civil servants has been politicized, they may balance the demands of political executives and bureaucrats.

    High ranking career officials who are part of a civil service system add a third dimension to the interaction between political executives and bureaucrats. They are supposed to be responsive to the legal authority of political heads, but they also have institutional responsibilities and a longer time horizon than the political heads. “The civil service idea in Washington may be a counterpoint for balancing strictly political and bureaucratic demands, but it rests on slippery foundations” (32).

    Political executives can usually do better by evoking conditional cooperation rather than invoking their authority. (220) Conditional cooperation comes from developing trust with civil servants, building alliances within the agency and outside the agency (interest groups, media, other agencies, administration), and choosing strategically which goals to pursue.

    Place in the Literature:

    Sides with Seidman (1998), Neustadt (1960) regarding the power of the presidency and the constraints imposed by the internal structure of the executive. Does not address the issue of congressional dominance directly (thus, neither confirms nor denies). Discussion of “marrying the natives” suggests some degree of bureaucratic independence.

    General Argument:

    • Presidential campaigns do not produce action programs that can be precisely legislated and then put into play by the bureaucracy.
    • Transition teams are likely to be poorly organized and political appointments (and the movements of their bureaucratic counterparts) are made after the fact.
    • Therefore, these decisions are made in haste under incomplete information. Under these circumstances, it is reasonable to believe that executives will use criteria on which information is available (i.e. political affiliation and service to the party or its members) as a basis for decision-making.
    • Higher-level staffing decisions, even within the civil service, become de facto political appointments (with political attachments to both the executive and relevant congressional actors, i.e. subgovernments and iron triangles).
    • Relationship of top civil servants and political appointees is therefore “smudgy,” i.e. not well defined. Because this relationship is not well defined, there is an absence of political and policy leadership within the bureaucracy. Political appointees “go native,” undermining presidential control, while bureaucrats are increasingly controlled by elected officials.
    • For this reason, policy implementation within the bureaucracy is not characterized by rational, hierarchical modes of interaction, but rather by establishing cooperation. This occasions the development of strategic planning and support-coalition formation.
      • The original purpose of the civil service is undermined.
      • Principal-agent relations are not clearly established and information is not efficiently disseminated.

    Suggested shape of reform:

    The establishment of a senior civil service (called Federal Executive Officers) in which rank is attached to individuals, not to jobs (unclear how this would bring about more predictable relationships between bureaucrats and political appointees, although it would make for the routinization of the post-filling process).

    Methodology: Interviews with 200 civil servants and political appointees from different departments and at different career stages.

    Obscene, Indecent and Profane Broadcasts Guide.

    Federal law prohibits obscene, indecent and profane content from being broadcast on the radio or TV.  That may seem clear enough, but determining what obscene, indecent and profane mean can be difficult, depending on who you talk to.

    In the Supreme Court’s 1964 landmark case on obscenity and pornography, Justice Stewart Potter famously wrote: “I know it when I see it.”  That case still influences FCC rules today, and complaints from the public about broadcasting objectionable content drive the enforcement of those rules.

    In other words, if you “know it when you see it” and find it objectionable, you can tell the FCC and ask us to check into it.

    Deciding what’s obscene, indecent or profane

    Each type of content has a distinct definition:

    Obscene content does not have protection by the First Amendment.  For content to be ruled obscene, it must meet a three-pronged test established by the Supreme Court: It must appeal to an average person’s prurient interest; depict or describe sexual conduct in a “patently offensive” way; and, taken as a whole, lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

    Indecent content portrays sexual or excretory organs or activities in a way that does not meet the three-prong test for obscenity.

    PROFANE, content includes “grossly offensive” language that is considered a public nuisance.

    Factors in determining how FCC rules apply include the specific nature of the content, the time of day it was broadcast and the context in which the broadcast took place.

    Broadcasting obscene content is prohibited by law at all times of the day. Indecent and PROFANE, content are prohibited on broadcast TV and radio between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., when there is a reasonable risk that children may be in the audience.

    What about cable, satellite TV and satellite radio?

    Because obscenity is not protected by the First Amendment, it is prohibited on cable, satellite and broadcast TV and radio.  However, the same rules for indecency and profanity do not apply to cable, satellite TV and satellite radio because they are subscription services.

    ENFORCING THE RULES

    Enforcement of the obscenity, indecency and profanity rules usually begins with complaints from the public that FCC staff review for possible violations. If an investigation is warranted and the FCC finds a station in violation of its rules, it has the authority to revoke a station license, impose a fine or issue a warning.

    What information should I include in an obscenity, indecency or profanity complaint with the FCC?

    When filing a complaint, please include the following information:

    • Date and time of the broadcast.
    • The call sign, channel and/or frequency of the station.
    • Details of what was actually said or depicted during the broadcast.

    Detailed complaints are helpful for analyzing the context of offensive language, images or scenes and determining possible rule violations. It is also helpful (but not a requirement) to include a recording or transcript of a broadcast when possible, though any documentation you provide becomes part of the FCC’s records and may not be returned.

    THE FCC AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH

    Full unedited text….

    FCC and Freedom of Speech Guide (pdf)

    The Federal Communications Commission receives numerous complaints that television and/or radio networks, stations or their employees or guests have broadcast extreme, incorrect or somehow improper political, economic or social statements.

    In some cases, the complaints allege that certain broadcast statements may endanger the United States or its people, or threaten our form of government, our economic system or established institutions like family or marriage. They say these statements are “un-American” and an abuse of freedom of speech. The FCC also receives complaints that some broadcast statements criticize, ridicule, “stereotype” or demean individuals or groups because of the religion, race, nationality, gender or other characteristics of the group or individual.

    FINALLY, MANY CONSUMERS COMPLAIN THAT TELEVISION OR RADIO BROADCASTS ARE OBSCENE, INDECENT, PROFANE OR OTHERWISE OFFENSIVE.

    WHAT IS THE FCC’S RESPONSIBILITY?

    The FCC is barred by law from trying to prevent the broadcast of any point of view. The Communications Act prohibits the FCC from censoring broadcast material, in most cases, and from making any regulation that would interfere with freedom of speech.

    EXPRESSIONS OF VIEWS THAT “DO NOT” INVOLVE A “CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER OF SERIOUS, SUBSTANTIVE EVIL” COME UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION, WHICH GUARANTEES FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND FREEDOM OF THE PRESS AND PREVENTS SUPPRESSION OF THESE EXPRESSIONS BY THE FCC.

    According to an FCC opinion on this subject, “the public interest is best served by permitting free expression of views.” This principle ensures that the most diverse and opposing opinions will be expressed, even though some may be highly offensive.

    THE FCC, HOWEVER, DOES HAVE ENFORCEMENT RESPONSIBILITIES IN CERTAIN LIMITED INSTANCES. For example, the Courts have said that indecent material is protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution AND CANNOT BE BANNED ENTIRELY.

    IT MAY BE RESTRICTED, HOWEVER, IN ORDER TO AVOID ITS BROADCAST WHEN THERE IS A REASONABLE RISK THAT CHILDREN MAY BE IN THE AUDIENCE. BETWEEN 6 A.M. AND 10 P.M. (when there is the greatest likelihood that children may be watching,) airing indecent material is prohibited by FCC rules.

    Broadcasters are required to schedule their programming accordingly or face enforcement action. Similarly, the Commission has stated that profane material is prohibited between 6 A.M. and 10 P.M.

    Finally, the courts have ruled that obscene material is not protected by the First Amendment and cannot be broadcast at any time. For more information about these rules, see our consumer guide.

    WHAT ARE THE BROADCASTERS’ RESPONSIBILITIES?

    Individual radio and television station licensees are responsible for selecting all broadcast matter and for determining how their stations can best serve their communities. Broadcast licensees are responsible for choosing both the entertainment programming and the programming concerning local issues, news, public affairs, religion, sports and other subjects to be aired by the station. They also decide how their programs, including call-in shows, will be conducted and whether or not to edit or reschedule programs or material (for example, moving a program to a time slot during which children may not be listening or watching).

    WHAT IF I HAVE A COMMENT AND/OR CONCERN ABOUT A SPECIFIC BROADCAST OR STATEMENT?

    If you consider a broadcast obscene, indecent, or PROFANE, you can file a complaint with the FCC. Factors in determining how FCC rules apply include the specific nature of the content, the time of day it was broadcast and the context in which the broadcast took place.

  • This is Not an EPA Matter?

    This is Not an EPA Matter?

    SO? IS THIS JUST AN ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM  LOOKING FOR A RESPONSIBLE PARTY?

    Documented for the record

    May 15, 2017 3:00 PM, I called and spoke with Bobbie at the Seattle office of the EPA 1-800-424-4372

    I warned EPA Bobbie of the eminent danger of a environmental disaster that will be caused when a house located the end of NE Buchanan Dr, in Clallam County WA, falls over the cliff onto our Rains Sr. Trust shoreline property and directly into the Straits of Juan De Fuca,  designated  waters of statewide significance.

    EPA Bobbie said, it was a unique problem, took my name and phone number and promised to return my call within an hour.

    EPA Bobbie returned my call, she called this number 1-360-4450, and said someone (no name) would call me.

    EPA Bobbie said, a direct quote  “THIS IS NOT AN EPA MATTER”  and that she had spent an hour of her time trying to help ME.

    I called the number, (no name) Jordan is  an employee of Jefferson County. Obviously, we agreed she CAN NOT help me with a Clallam County WA, ENVIRONMENTAL MATTER.

    IS THIS JUST AN EPA MATTER  LOOKING FOR AN EPA RESPONSIBLE PARTY SOLUTION?

    The solution is easy, tear down the house before it falls over the cliff.

    This is not a trick question….

     If nobody, takes action, when the house falls into Straits of Juan De Fuca  and an environmental disaster becomes a reality, who will be the responsible party?

    Will Clallam County Commissioners, the DCD,  be held responsible? Will Clallam County hard working citizens foot the bill to clean up the environmental mess?

     Will cleaning up the crushed pieces of the house after it falls over the 200 ft  cliff be an EPA  water cleanup recovery in the Straits of Juan De Fuca? (paid for by Clallam County WA taxpayers?)

    ———————————————————————

    Documented for the record

    The EPA has been put on notice and warned about this ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM, as have, WA DC Rep Kilmer, WA State Reps in Olympia, Clallam County Commissioners and the director of DCD, and as usual to my email list.

     WHAT?

    THE INFLUENCE OF THE WEATHER ON MILITARY OPERATIONS HAS LONG BEEN RECOGNIZED. During World War II, Eisenhower said, [i]n Europe bad weather is the worst enemy of the air [operations]. Some soldier once said, “The weather is always neutral.” Nothing could be more untrue. Bad weather is obviously the enemy of the side that seeks to launch projects requiring good weather, or of the side possessing great assets, such as strong air forces, which depend upon good weather for effective operations. If really bad weather should endure permanently, the Nazi would need nothing else to defend the Normandy coast!

    WHEN?

    D-Day Weather Map Is Most Important in History
    The forecast for northwest France on June 6, 1944 stands as history`s most important weather forecast. Conditions at Omaha Beach and the other landing zones within 50 miles of Normandy had to be just right so as to allow troops to parachute to their landing zones, as well as maneuver their way onshore via amphibious vehicles. With so many military assets being deployed — more than 5,000 ships, 13,000 aircraft and 160,000 Allied troops — THE WEATHER FORECAST, AT A TIME WHEN MODERN METEOROLOGY WAS STILL IN ITS INFANCY, WAS CRUCIAL TO THE SUCCESS OF THE MISSION.

    WHERE?

    Massive World War II bombing raids altered English weather
    Allied bombing raids during WWII turned the English sky white with contrails, providing a case study for scientists studying how the weather is affected by these long, feathery lines of condensation that form behind aircraft. Contrails form when the hot, moist plume of engine exhaust mixes with cold air. Liquid droplets form and then freeze, forming a straight, white line. Contrails, which can last days, have complex effects on the Earth`s surface temperature: They can reflect sunlight, causing cooling, or they can trap long-wave radiation, and preventing it from escaping to space.

    www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/devil.asp

    Soapbox: Radio commentator Paul Harvey penned an essay entitled ‘If I Were the Devil.’ … Claim: Transcript reproduces radio commentator Paul Harvey’s essay entitled “If I Were the Devil.”. … If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

    SNOPES SAYS The oldest genuine Paul Harvey version of this piece we’ve found so far appeared in his newspaper column in 1964:

    If I Were the Devil

    If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

    I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree.

    So I should set about however necessary, to take over the United States.

    I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

    With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whispers to you as I whispered to Eve, “Do as you please.”

    To the young I would whisper “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that “man created God,” instead of the other way around. I would confide that “what is bad is good and what is good is square.”

    In the ears of the young married I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be “extreme” in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct.

    And the old I would teach to pray — to say after me — “Our father which are in Washington.”

    Then I’d get organized.

    I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull, uninteresting.

    I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies, and vice-versa.

    I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing, less work. Idle hands usually work for me.

    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could, I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction, I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the Devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions; let those run wild.

    I’d designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts and I’d get preachers to say, “She’s right.”

    With flattery and promises of power I would get the courts to vote against God and in favor of pornography.

    Thus I would evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, then from the Houses of Congress.

    Then in his own churches I’d substitute psychology for religion and deify science.

    If I were Satan I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg

    And the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

    If I were the Devil I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. Then my police state would force everybody back to work.

    Then I would separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines and objectors in slave-labor camps.

    If I were Satan I’d just keep doing what I’m doing and the whole world go to hell as sure as the Devil.

    So, I would set about however necessary to take over the United States.

    I’d subvert the churches first, and I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the devil, I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves until each, in its turn, was consumed.

    And with promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.

    If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellect but neglect to discipline emotions. I’d tell teachers to let those students run will. And before you knew it, you’d have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

    With a decade, I’d have prisons overflowing and judges promoting pornography. Soon, I would evict God from the courthouse and the schoolhouse and them from the houses of Congress.

    In his own churches, I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I’d lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.

    If I were the devil, I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

    What’ll you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich?

    I’d convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun and that what you see on television is the way to be.

    And thus, I could undress you in public and lure you into bed with diseases for which there are no cures.

    In other words, if I were the devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.

     READ THE THESIS:  “A Disaster of the First Magnitude”

    Winston Churchill

    “A Disaster of the First Magnitude”

    THESIS:   Churchill attacks the Munich agreement as a failure of the Western powers to prevent the Nazi power from gaining momentum when it had the chance and has therefore jeopardized the peace they were trying to maintain.

    • Winston Churchill (1874-1965) delivers a speech on October 5, 1938 in the House of Commons attacking the Munich agreement and British policy toward Nazi Germany
    • Churchill begins by stating they have faced defeat in the Munich agreement and the Czechs would of even been better off with the Western powers that deserted them.
    • He continues that if a better relationship with Russia had been pursued and early action had been taken then the disastrous state at hand would not have happen.
    • Also the peace efforts and forces against Hitler in Germany would have been able to gain strength if early action had been taken.
    • Church now describes the politically humiliated and economically mutilated Czechoslovakia, whose banks, railway agreements, and industries are all disrupted.
    • Churchill seals the fate of Czechoslovakia by predicting it will be absorbed by the Nazis in despair or revenge
    • He now addresses Britain’s previous position of power when they had the ability to stop Germany from rearming and gaining momentum but they are now faced with what they could have prevented.
    • Churchill finishes by explaining the danger that Britain and France now face against the Nazi power with France’s allies lost and both countries waiting too long to rearm or take action.
    • Churchill states that the British people must know the deficiency of and neglect of the government and the consequences they will now face.

    SEABURY BLAIR JR. | Elwha too clogged for fish to live

    Seabury Blair Jr.
    Columnist

    Posted: April 15, 2013

     

    Two days after I hiked the sandy, rocky desolation that used to be Lake Mills, as many as 200,000 chinook salmon were killed in what has to be one of the biggest blunders in the history of the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.

    The year-old salmon were released from the new $16 million Elwha Hatchery run by the state and Lower Elwha Klallam tribe on April 5. Most — if not all — were killed when they tried to swim downstream through the thick gray goop that is the lower Elwha River, created by the removal of two dams built illegally in 1910.

    Though they only had to negotiate 3.5 miles of the river before reaching clearer waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the silt in the river began choking them almost the minute they swam from the crystalline hatchery water into the moving mire that is the Elwha. Hatchery officials reported seeing hundreds of dead smolts lining the riverbank, their gills clogged by the same silt that forced “temporary closure” of a $70 million Elwha River water treatment plant.

    In the Port Angeles Daily News, Mike Gross, Fish and Wildlife biologist, called the release of the salmon “a mistake.” Gross said he suspected the fish suffocated when silt prevented their gills from providing oxygen.

    I imagine it would be akin to trying to breathe volcanic ash for days without a mask, or running a marathon in a massive dust storm.

    Hatchery officials said they checked on the amount of silt in the Elwha on April 4, and determined it was acceptable to release the fish. They said the silt in the river increased overnight.

    I hiked about 3 miles downstream in the desolate bed of the former Lake Mills on April 3, and I don’t need a degree in biology to tell you that no fish could live in that water. The river looked no different when I left the Elwha Campground on April 4.

    For almost 15 miles, the Elwha River carves through a century’s worth of mud, sand and river cobble deposited behind the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams. Above Rica Canyon, at the entrance to the former Lake Mills, the river is the same old blue friend I’ve known for more than 50 years.

    But beginning at the old Lake Mills inlet, the river turns into gray slurry that is poison to any fish. I don’t imagine many wild animals drink from that deadly potion and live, either.

    Fisheries biologists have been releasing coho salmon into Indian Creek, which flows from the west into the Elwha; and Little River, which flows from the east. Both tributaries are about 7 miles upstream from the mouth of the river.

    They’ve reported some of the fish, along with a few chinook they released into Lake Mills before it became the desolation it is today, have survived the gantlet of poison. Now the state is planning to release nearly a million salmon from the hatchery in June.

    About the same time, work on removing the remainder of the Glines Canyon dam is expected to resume, which will surely cause more sediment to be swept downstream. Worse, concrete dust from the dam will be stirred into the mix, making it even more deadly.

    Let us hope the state and tribe can think of a way to get healthy salmon from the hatchery to the Strait before they kill a million more fish.

    Flooding is a Dam Shame

    Posted on June 28, 2013 7:31 am by Pearl Rains Hewett

    Drought is a dam shame

    China was so dam smart that they built the biggest dam in the world.

    He who controls the water controls the world?

    In the USA the government was and is so dam stupid they decided that hydro electric power was not dam clean, dam cheap, dam renewable dam energy, not dam flood control and not dam drought and dam property loss prevention.

    The dam Chinese government is so dam smart they work in the best interest of the dam people.

    The Chinese dam prevents the dam loss of life, billions of dam dollars in property damage, provides dam cheap, dam clean, dam renewable, dam energy and helps keep their dam economy strong.

    The Chinese dam controls the dam water releases the dam water to eliminate the dam droughts

    What part of this dam Chinese policy does the dam US government not understand?

    THE US GOVERNMENT IS SO DAM DUMB THEY WORK FOR THE DAM LOBBYIST AND THE DAM SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. SAVE THE DAM ENDANGERED etal., ad nausaum, SALMON AT WHAT COST?

    The best dam interest of the dam people in the USA be dammed

    As dictated by the dam US government

    The dam people in the dam USA are flooded and cleaning up the dam water damage for six dam months of the year.

    The dam people in the USA suffer the dam drought for the other six dam months of the year

    The Chinese dam policy was to build and keep dams to provide clean renewable electric power, control the dam water and prevent the dam flooding and release the dam water to prevent drought

    THE DAM USA POLICY CREATES LOSS OF DAM LIFE, DAM MISERY AND DAM SUFFERING FOR MILLIONS OF DAM AMERICANS EVERY DAM YEAR.

    AS PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD ASK

    “HOW’S THE DAM U.S.A. SYSTEM WORKING OUT FOR YOU?


  • The Power Behind The Thrown?

    The “POWER BEHIND THE THRONE” refers to a person or group that informally exercises the real POWER of a high-ranking office, such as a head of state.

    In this case, The Power Behind the Thrown, are the Establishment’s  POLITICIANS that got thrown out in the 2016 presidential election.

    A Democrat, a Socialist and 16 Republicans from the establishment got thrown out. “BECAUSE AMERICAN VOTERS WANTED THE TRUTH”

    And as America’s voting citizens would have it….

    Donald J. Trump a non-politician  was elected President on Nov 8, 2016.

    Donald J. Trump is my president. He was sworn in on Jan 20, 2017.

    YEP.. A REAL, HONEST TO GOD MAN, SWORE ON A STACK OF BIBLES TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    From June 16, 2015, to date, the attacks on Donald Trump, by the public media in collaboration and  collusion with extreme activists have been horrendous and unceasing.

    Indeed, the establishments Government of politicians was dethroned  By Donald J. Trump
    The power of the liberal public media  was toppled by social media and the power of we the people.

     

    Hard power is the use of military and economic means to influence the behavior or interests of … Hard power contrasts with soft power, which comes from diplomacy, culture and history

    Which lead me to the historic U.S. government establishmented method to ensure the  smooth transition of power, as provide for, and done by our elected Democrat and Republican representative, by voting in the U.S. Congress, for those who consider themselves to be the permanent government of the United States of America. The un-elected  group at the highest level of government, that informally exercises the real POWER of  high-ranking office.

    VIDEO: Ex-CIA Analyst Says Former Obama Staffers Sabotaging President Trump By Withholding Intel

    Ex-CIA Analyst Says It’s Time To Clean House

    Earlier this week ex-CIA analyst  Ret. Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, told Martha MacCallum of Fox News that he thinks that left over members of Obama’s administration are withholding information from the President.

    The interview with MacCallum came as the Wall Street Journal released a report claiming that intelligence officials are purposefully withholding information from President Trump. The Gateway Pundit was one of the first to report on the claims from the WSJ article.

    From The Free Beacon:

    “The problem is this, you have a lot of folks who are either career members of the intelligence community who are skeptical of the current situation or who were at one point political appointees who have burrowed themselves into the infrastructure who are now career intelligence officers,” he said.

    Shaffer said it is evident that there are people who are embedded in the current administration that have retained loyalties to past administrations. This causes them to “[judge] for themselves what they should or should not do regarding intelligence.”

    “The same mentality where you’ve seen people leaking is the same mentality you see people holding information,” he said.

    In the U.S. Constitution there are only THREE  separate powers of Government

    ONE IMPORTANT PRINCIPLE EMBODIED IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION IS SEPARATION OF POWERS. … EACH OF THE THREE GOVERNMENTAL BRANCHES, LEGISLATIVE, EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL, “CHECKS” THE POWERS OF THE OTHER BRANCHES TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINCIPAL POWERS OF THE GOVERNMENT ARE NOT CONCENTRATED IN THE HANDS OF ANY SINGLE BRANCH.

    I’ve spent hundreds of hours researching, reading, documenting and critically thinking (connecting the dots) and there is only one fourth secret power embedded in the US Government, that fits the criteria.
