Back To The Corrupt Future

May 12, 2017 — Rick Hayes

Back in the day when the three networks ruled the airways, people escaped the rigors of everyday life and gathered with their family to enjoy watching a television program.  And although everyone knew that in real life, justice doesn’t always prevail, for those few hours at least, families could be confident that before the credits rolled across their television sets, somehow good would triumph over evil.

Imagine how those same families of the past would have reacted if one of the three networks created a program series based on the future scandals of the Obama Administration. It would be a kind of “Back to the Corrupt Future” television series, where episodes would cover the numerous national disgraces. For sure, there would be a mountain of illegal material to work with; a virtual treasure trove of unlawful and unconstitutional activity.

The Swamp Is Bigger Than Expected

Apr 4, 2017 — Rick Hayes

The interesting thing about a swamp is that you don’t know what’s in it until you start to drain it.

Spying on citizens, undermining political rivals using government agencies with impunity and ignoring the rule of law destroy the stability of a nation. They make up the vapors emanating from the Washington swamp that President Trump declared he would drain but they are only the bubbling byproducts of the massive network of corrupt politicians, lobbyists, politically appointed ideological judges and lawless law enforcement officials.

Entrenched power entangled with opposing yet co-dependent desires that run counter to the interests of the American people is the sum total of the motivating forces within the swamp that Trump is facing.
