We hear this a lot: “The rank and file are fine. It’s the leadership that’s bad.” That’d be nice if it was true. But it’s not.

If there is one thing that progressive Left governance has accomplished in the last two Democrat administrations, it’s been their complete (and sadly, likely irreversible) destruction of formerly non-partisan governmental organizations. The FBI, DoJ, IRS, and CIA used to comprise the bedrock foundation of a just and equitable American society, ensuring an unbiased legal system, providing national security and pursuing America’s best interests around the world.

Regrettably, that is no longer the case. These formerly neutral national institutions are now blatantly and unapologetically nothing more than extensions of the Democrat Party. With their actions predictably covered and excused by the mainstream liberal media, these establishments have taken to proactively opposing and undercutting all manner of conservative politicians and initiatives.

The examples are sweeping and extensive, from all corners of the federal infrastructure once thought to be independent and fair. Here are just a few:

As Director of the Exempt Organizations Unit at the IRS, Lois Lerner was in charge of processing applications for organizations seeking tax-exempt status. She was accused of deliberately delaying or rejecting the applications of several conservative applicants, often based merely on their conservative-sounding name or their affiliation with the Tea Party. An uproar ensued and Lerner eventually resigned. However, a follow-up investigation by the Obama-era DoJ and FBI into the matter found “poor judgement” but no basis for a criminal investigation. Of course.


Appointed Director of the FBI by President Obama in 2013, James Comey is perhaps the quintessential example of a Washington D.C. bureau chief turned political hack. His decision to not pursue Hillary Clinton’s flagrant illegal mishandling of her unauthorized off-premises e-mail server and classified documents during the 2016 Presidential campaign stands as an unarguable example of unethical politically driven behavior of the worst kind. Then, shortly thereafter, his arbitrary and unjustified investigation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn cemented the FBI’s new role as the Democratic attack arm, whose main goal these days, apparently, is to harass and eradicate threats to Democrat Party rule. Unjustified armed searches of high-profile Republicans and their residences is now commonplace.


While Obama Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch were guilty of a multitude of irresponsible, unjustified acts, the DoJ is in entirely new partisan territory under Merrick Garland. From branding regular American parents as “domestic terrorists” for questioning their local school boards (as if the DoJ should be micromanaging local town issues!) to turning a  blind eye to life-threatening protests outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices to signing off on totally capricious search warrants, nakedly aimed at neutralizing high-profile Democratic political opponents, the DoJ under Garland has gone from being (in Holder’s words) “Obama’s wingman” to flying the lead plane in the attack squadron and picking the targets. With its two-tiered justice system — one for well-connected Democrats and another, harsher one for anyone with Republican leanings — the current DoJ has absolutely shattered the once inviolate American principal of Equal Justice Under Law.
