Virtually all Americans believed, until the inauguration of Donald Trump as president on January 20, 2017, that when someone became president, he could begin to implement his agenda. Certainly Old Joe Biden’s handlers have done so with a vengeance since they took over; but when Trump became president, he immediately began to encounter resistance from entrenched members of the government bureaucracy who refused to do as he ordered....

“We will pass critical reforms,” Trump said, “making every executive branch employee fireable by the president of the United States. The deep state must and will be brought to heel.”

It’s a commonsensical solution, as Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance pointed out. “Everyone is losing their mind about this, but I’ve been calling for it at every town hall I do. Either the president controls the executive branch or he doesn’t. If he doesn’t, we don’t live in a Republic, we live in a civil service driven oligarchy.”...

And although the “deep state” only came to the attention of most Americans over the last few years, the controversy over the hiring and firing of civil service employees is one of the oldest controversies of the republic.

New Political Machines For America, by Steve Rossiter, Canada Free Press, 19 March 2022:

In the aftermath of the 2016 and 2020 elections, the extent and degree of corruption in the federal government has been astounding, and Americans from both major political parties are starting to acknowledge it and they are not happy.Realizing just how bad things are is a hard pill to swallow, but once swallowed people are revolting against the perpetrators that have lied to them for so long. The corrupt career politicians that make up the criminal enterprise of the Legislature and Executive Branches are responsible for their own behavior and should be held accountable accordingly....

New 21st century party machines must be constructed. New machines that reinforce the Founding Fathers concept of serving in elective office as a privilege and limited opportunity to serve their fellow citizens. It isn’t a career, there is no retirement pay, and after their limited service they will return to being a productive, taxpaying, American citizen. The new political machines will limit the opportunity for corruption to occur and result in people serving that won’t become part of the Washington Beltway bubble, where the only reality is what happens inside the beltway....

Candace Owens: "The enemies for the American people are sitting in Congress on capitol hill", 18 March, 2022:


However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
