    • Hello Keith. I want the Biden team to plan now to investigate everything very closely that the tRump political appointees are trying to keep from them. There is a reason they do not want Bidens team to know these things, and we need to know if they point to wrongdoing or bribe taking by the tRump team. Is this an attempt to shield Israel? Is it to get the Arab weapons sales done before it is found out how illegal they are? If it was not personally bad for tRump he wouldn’t be trying so hard to block the Biden team. I bet it is another Ukraine situation. Hugs

      • Scottie, I think you and I have discussed before that the Trump corrupt activities go far deeper than people know. It is in his nature and his history. The Mueller investigation found several things and the Senate Intelligence committee confirmed that and worse, but they did not go deep enough by their own admission and an awareness some documents were deleted.

        • Hello Keith. I agree. What do you think, should should Biden’s AG / justice department investigate the tRump admin which will get the Republicans up in arms, ( but they already are anyway ) or let it all be swept under the rug in hopes the Republicans will meet the Democrats half way and act like responsible adults? Hugs

  • Whether military or civilian enlistment or appointment, Congressional, Judicial, or the President, everybody entering into service of the Republic takes a very similar oath, all of them swear allegiance to the Constitution.

    I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…

    Those words still mean as much meaning as the character of the person taking it is willing for them to have. Our legislators used to display a degree of statesmanship. But it seems that after the Tea Party fiasco politics became a feeding frenzy. Character and self-control gave way to lying and cut-throat manners.

    The words have the same value as ever, we just need to find the men and women who can live up to their gravity. We have cemeteries full of men and women who felt honored to be able to serve their nation.

    But the sad truth, Keith, is as you said, it is just words. At least to these current actors, it is of no consequence to ignoring their oath. It is not surprising anymore as we see the Church and half the government tying to strike the colors and turn us into a theocracy, or a dictatorship. Maybe a fascist state or a plutocracy. They think they have outgrown democracy.

    • Hello Cagjr. That the election has been certified by enough states that there is no doubt that Biden won. It is complete cowardice Republican elected officials, elected officials, can not admit Biden won because they are afraid of tRump. They are admitting they are afraid of one stupid old man who is not grounded in reality who is leaving office. As far as attempts to block the president elect and his representative from getting their legally entitled briefings should be illegal and prosecuted. Hugs

  • We see where these people have their loyalty. If Trump did not have their oath of loyalty to him, and quite possibly, a nondisclosure agreement, they would not be in these positions. Positions that can have a serious effect on our national security and the function of our government.

    The deconstruction of the administrative state is in full swing. Like a wrecking ball into the facade of Independence Hall.

    “In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own”
    Thomas Jefferson

    “I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” Mattis writes. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand—one that all of us should be able to get behind. We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values—our values as people and our values as a nation.” He goes on, “We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”
    ~General James Mattis, USMC Ret. He still honors the oath he took when he first entered military service. Semper Fi.

    • Hello Cagjr. I read that legal scholars say tRump’s NDA’s can not be enforced on government employees. Yet he doesn’t need them with his cult followers and sycophants. I often wonder what they get out of all of it. These people must really believe in the White Nationalist Dominion agenda to be willing to break so many laws and violate clear norms of behavior to block Biden getting briefings. He is going to find out sooner or later, even if these people manage to destroy some of the evidence, it will come out. Hugs
