Moonbat Brothers – Tapper and Clapper Conduct Couples’ Grief Therapy Session Over DC Swamp Draining…

Trump Derangement Syndrome is real – Former journalist Jake Tapper and former ODNI James Clapper conduct a broadcast couples therapy discussion on the impact of Washington DC’s swamp draining.

Their collective grief session included a discussion of how President Trump was resetting the system of checks-and-balances by firing political appointees of the prior executive administration.  You have to watch the segment to fully grasp the level of stupid.

Sad faces abound as they console each other that a new administration actually removed the political appointees of the prior administration.  This action, according to their logic, is akin to the removal of one of the three branches of co-equal government; though they never actually do get around to explaining how the Legislative branch, or Judicial Branch have been removed by the Executive branch.  Funny that.

You cannot make this level of moonbattery up.  Virtuous defender of the republic Jake Tapper actually said: “because he’s firing the checks and balances“.  Don’t believe me, watch:


I’m assuming the CNN audience was never exposed to grade-school civics, and probably don’t comprehend the FBI Director and Attorney General are appointed by the President and serve at the whim of the elected President, who IS The Executive Branch.

Despite what former ODNI James Clapper says, I promise you the FBI and DOJ are not “co-equal branches of government”.

  1. All I know is that the Democrats have been screaming “it’s the end of Trump” all week. Well, guess who’ll be at work bright and early tomorrow.

      One of the great things about POTUS Trump is that he keeps on Trumpin.

      Nothing gets in the way of his MAGA efforts, and he’s winning, and we’re winning and America is winning.

      And Crapper and his soulmate Clapper will just have to deal with it.

      Let’s not overlook the “republican(t)s” who blatantly oppose our President Trump.(We all know who they are). And while public displays of their (“urinolists” and parasitic bureaucratic swamp creatures) hubris seems to either be ignored or worse, encouraged by their hypnotized, zombi-fied cult, we take the time to analyze the underlying psyche of their twisted sense of grandeur. They actually imagine themselves as a coequal (or supreme) branch of the government. IOW, could they (Yapper and Fapper) represent the Deep State anymore clearly, if they tried? This is the definition of Deep State.

      Good one Texian, so many don’t know it’s standard practice upon election to replace political appointees in one’s own cabinet. SAD thing, as Sundance pointed out, is that the CNN audience doesn’t even know this or how their govt. works. And, they don’t even THINK about what has just been said; they just accept it.

        Interesting you should mention how they do not THINK, nhgardengram. That was the goal all along with the Hillary and Company public RE-education system to dumb down America & prevent students from critical thinking. Because they know they cannot control people who can think. Unfortunately, the global communistic moonbats like Clinton and cronies have made much headway, which is why we see things like a mentally lazy CNN audience. I figured we were about done for as a country due to the progress they’ve made. Enter Trump and new cabinet….. I now have new hope. When he said he wants to do away with Common Core, I knew he was well informed and figured out same stuff that I and fellow parent activists figured out many years ago.

        I know I’m preaching to the choir here but I just have to say it. This federal fight isn’t about education, or about party, or even about the dirty MSM. It’s about America and preserving liberty.

Brennan is very quiet lately, which makes me believe he’s still working for the former Executive Branch Brotherhood.

      Better yet, let’s save our President the annoyance of having to wave the gnats away. Let’s walk ahead of him with fly swatters and keep exposing these liars, anarchists, haters and obstructionists for their evil works.

      The media obviously has called some emergency meeting of the Ranking Media Fools to plot an all-out assault on our President and We, the Deplorables. Perhaps they held their meeting following their faked and pathetic WH Press Prom a few weeks ago. Nothing has slowed the President’s progress or resolve. Time for desperation and all out warfare on their part. Our response? Be Breitbart!

      They think as long as they sing the same song on every network and yes, that includes Fox with their overpaid, overrated, outdated opinion peddlers such as Krauthammer and Perino, the public will be crushed under the weight of all the Fake News and contrived, made up skull duggery. And that we will give up. It’s a tactic as old as Marx’s dangerous, unhinged rantings and the deadly persecutions and policies of Lenin and Mao. Crush the opposition, demoralize them, create the false impression they have no chance of turning the tide.

      The media is now the head of the fire breathing dragon, giving air time to the dark and dangerous such as Schumer and HRC and the Congressional Dementia Caucus lead by Maxine Waters and Pelosi.

      We must push back by turning up the heat in our states and on our local media outlets. It will do little good to write to the heads of the Media Complex but when their local affiliates projectile vomit their bilge, push back. Call, send letters, faxes, emails and texts to the program directors of your local TV stations. Let them know they are reporting falsified information and that you will be contacting their local sponsors, usually small businesses, asking them to stop advertising in support of the concocted, distorted mudslinging that is supposed to pass for national news.

      Form a group, make yourselves heard, call into local talk radio shows, hold a pro-Trump block party, get a few people to dress in red, white and blue and door knock with you, handing out a flyer describing many of President Trump’s accomplishments that help our families that Fake News reporters refuse to report.

      Make it local. Make it stick. There’s a good reason the media has a very low opinion rating and its high time we step up to the plate, turn the tables and capitalize on the mistrust and disrespect the nation has for people posing as journalists.

      I’m very suspicious of the Uniparty motives Mitch McConnell and Mike Lee, et al, have in pushing for Merritt Garland as FBI head.

      First red flag: It is the duty solely of the President to choose a nominee for the job, not sitting senators. If they are of the opinion that hiring Garland will satisfy the nest of water moccasins in The Swamp, aka, the Dim’s and the Media Complex, they are wrong. Nothing on this Universe will placate these vipers.

      Second red flag: If Mr. Garland is indeed the mild mannered, ethical, non-partisan he’s portrayed to be, why would BHO want him on the SCOTUS? BHO nominated him because he thot he would come across as enough off a centrist to get seated but in actuality, the former prez wanted nothing more than to ensure any opinions and rulings that even remotely resembled those of Scalia would be vanquished forever. He knew it was his last shot at stacking the court, are we to believe he wanted someone without leftist points of view that would influence his decisions from the bench?

      Sundance’s take on the drumbeat now for Garland will be enlightening, as I’m sure I’m missing something.

      In the meantime, get up, get out and take the fight to the media’s doorstep. Expose their lies and dissuade their advertisers. Keep the heat up under your elected officials at all levels.

      This is personal–it is us they wish to defeat right along with our President. In our little corners of the country, if enough of us will sacrifice the time and effort, we can make a difference, defend our President and continue the fight to MAGA.

        Farmhand, your post is long,but I’ve read it all. (I’ve had long ones too.) Great ideas! This reminds me of what the abolitionists did to combat slavery. One thing that comes to mind is pamphleteering. There are times I’ve left material in waiting rooms. It may be good to post good info fliers on grocery store bulletin boards. Basically our work in THIS regard consists of deprogramming a severely brainwashed/propagandized public. Talk radio is one of the best venues IMO.

        Our job consists of countering the propaganda. Much of it is a philosophical fight. But we can make headway, although it’s slow, by attacking the problem. The left attacks people. I believe we can attack the lies, give truth ammo to the good guys on our side, and be relentless.

        Remember the old Burma Shave signs? One of the things I hope to do is put a message in that style in my front yard where traffic can see it. I hope others do too. A constitutional attorney told us mad moms once to have fun as we counter the left. Hang in there and keep up the great work! MAGA

        BTW – communists are downright nasty. American and otherwise.

      I can relax. I do not sweat the small stuff. The confident and generous America that was my birthright is a legacy I can pass on.

      I feel the world outside America breathing more easily too. I heard a massive sigh of relief from all four corners.

    This remark by Clapper is so silly as to be meaningless. The “co-equal” branches of government are essentially unrelated to criminal investigation or intelligence gathering in their purest sense. The FBI and all the other alphabet spying agencies are purely 20th Century addenda, all subordinate in the Executive branch. They in no way relate to the concept of “checks and balances.” Yet most products of 21st Century public education are so ignorant of both history and civics thst they are easily misled by the propaganda masters

      • dayallaxeded says:

        Think of any two conflicting co-equal branches like bullets vs. bullet-proof armor–they are equal in a sense. Neither can overrule the other completely, but they can conceivably prevent the other from operating in particular circumstances. The courts are supposed to be the last line of defense against government usurpation of power beyond that allowed by the Constitution. Unfortunately, as we should be fully clear on now, far too many judges, lawyers, government officials, and people in the general populace think that the Constitution is just an anachronism and that Congress and established agencies can do just about anything they want.

        The courts’ overweening deference to legislation and its evil bastard child, administrative rule making needs to come to a screeching halt and strict Constitutional construction and scrutiny needs to be applied to all fedrool actions. The size, complexity, and cost of fedrool goobermint would reduce dramatically in fairly short order–no more fedrool edumakashun department, all fedrool dictates to local businesses and individuals regarding their associations or choices of how, when, and with whom to do business should end, etc., etc., including all clearly extra-constitutional “health care” laws. While people love to blame Justice Roberts for upholding <0-don't-care, what he really did was follow the longstanding rule that the court will not overturn legislation enacted by the alleged elected "representatives of the people" in Congress, if there is any way to validate the legislation. That is a good rule, if the Constitution is also being strictly applied as written, but a very bad rule, if it amounts to a rubber stamp for even grossly unconstitutional actions by Congress. Elections should have consequences in what comes out of DC, but the Constitution must remain sacrosanct through every administration!

        Well, a guy can dream, right?

    There really was no pertinent topic today for this post, so I decided on the closest possible item for my bit of humor: Moonbat brothers, Tapper and Clapper…..
    Hey ‘fellow refugees’ (my husband’s endearing moniker for us treepers– every time one of you sends a like, he tells me, “You’ve got another drive-by from a refugee.” 😎
    Anyway, back to the subject — Let’s have some fun today……
    I have a perpetual calendar. For those of you wrinkling your brows and scratching your heads– a perpetual calendar is a homemade wooden wall calendar with individual square wooden pieces denoting the months and dates. Each month you flip to the name of the month and move the date pieces for that month under the weekdays. I have special pieces painted with simple little icons to denote each month’s holidays, family birthdays and anniversaries. It’s really clever and pretty, but needless to say, we need a real calendar in the house in order to set up the perpetual one each month.
    For this month I have a US flag to represent Memorial Day, May 29th, a birthday cake for May 12th, my daughter-in-law’s birthday, and a pregnant lady for Mother’s Day. However, I just noticed that on May 27, Ramadan begins. (The publishers of our real calendar were so thoughtful to include it on theirs– sarc.) So, not wanting to neglect all my Islam friends and family (sarc), I would like to create a date piece with a drawing to represent Ramadan. A few suggestions emerged from my husband– a stick of dynamite, an IED, a machete, or perhaps a severed head. If any of you have some other ideas, we will take them under consideration. We are an equal opportunity religious household. 😎
