By Carl Worden

Republican Bill Bennett was Secretary of Education for a time, and he wrote a book about his experiences there.

One of the difficulties Bennett wrote about was his discovery that his orders to carry out Republican policies were not being carried out by those tasked with doing just that.  Basically, he revealed that he was at the helm, steering his ship, only to discover his wheel wasn't attached to the rudder.  The rudder was being controlled by bureaucrats in the Department of Education, who were continuing to conduct business by Democrat policies.  He ended up having to go down several levels of authority and get rid of all the bureaucrats who were subverting his direct orders.

That is how the Deep State cancels your vote!  We elect an administration intent on bringing reforms we want, but if that administration isn't inspecting for what they are expecting, business as usual is what we get.

President Obama understood this quite well.  He staffed all his agencies and the courts with lifelong bureaucrats and constitutionally corrupt judges, respectively, who were solid Liberal Socialists, for the purpose of subverting any Conservative administration that might follow his.

I don't know exactly when or how, but somehow it became virtually impossible to fire these lifelong bureaucrats, even for outright subversion, and all while the GOP apparently slept right through it.  As a result, we have bureaucrats dug into our government like ticks, who believe they run the government, and can do just about anything they want because the government has become so big and unwieldy it is difficult to root them out.

As it turns out, the so-called Whistleblower whose testimony gave birth to this sham impeachment effort against President Trump, simply disagreed with Trump on foreign relations policy involving Ukraine.  He or she had no actual evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors.  In other words, this creep had come to believe s/he had a right to subvert Trump's administration because s/he knows better than the American voters who put Trump into office.

The reason Trump removed the former U.S. Ambassador from her position in Ukraine was because he'd received credible reports that she was actively trying to subvert Trump's policies toward Ukraine.  Just as Bill Bennett discovered, lifelong bureaucrats have taken the attitude that they should run the government as they see fit, and to Hell with the current administration's orders!  After all, administrations come and go every four to eight years, so these bureaucrats think they know better and they continue to run their departments as if they are independent of the current president's wishes.

That is what's been going on in every major department of our government.

Even worse is the fact our FBI, State Department and intelligence services have also been infected, not only by the appointed leadership, but also by ideologue bureaucrats working under those officials.  So we had bad apples like former FBI Director James Comey and former intelligence officials like John Brennan and James Clapper, supported by underlings like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who continued to subvert Trump's policies even after the former Obama appointed officials had been removed from their posts.

I've written this before:  While it will undoubtedly harm some very good and loyal bureaucrats who do follow a new administration's policies, the only way to solve these problems is to replace not only the existing department heads when a new administration takes power, but also to replace every single person down to the third level of authority in those departments.

Most of us will initially agree that the rank and file of FBI and CIA agents are loyal and patriotic Americans, but then we see those same rank and file FBI and CIA agents follow orders that are not consistent with our basic constitutional rights.  They follow orders they know they shouldn't because they don't want to get fired, and those orders often do not come directly from the appointed officials heading their agencies.  Those orders are issued by people who are expected to follow administration policy, but don't because they have come to believe their superior judgment justifies resisting policy they don't personally agree with.

And that is how the Deep State is canceling your vote.  If these self-righteous bureaucrats are not replaced down to the third level of authority in every department of the government when a new administration takes power, it will continue just as it has.
