For months now, the self-described Trump White House insider who calls himself Q (referred to as Q, Q Anon or Q Anonymous) has been trumpeting that President Trump will unleash “The Storm” against the entrenched “swamp” of criminal political elites and federal government bureaucrats.

Again and again, the predicted Storm has not materialized.

What we get are little hiccups, like last Wednesday‘s long-overdue revocation of the security clearance of John Brennan, the former CIA director of the Obama administration who has not had a government position since.

The White House also said they’re “reviewing” the security clearances for other former officials and Trump critics, including former FBI director James Comey; former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe; former director of national intelligence James Clapper; former national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA director Michael Hayden, and former FBI agent Peter Strzok whom Trump had fired on August 10, 2018.

The latest Storm hiccup is the Justice Department’s “review” of the role of the hate-group Southern Poverty Law Center.

From an op/ed by the New York Post‘s editorial board on August 18, 2018:

It’s been a rough year for the Southern Poverty Law Center — deservedly so. And it just got more difficult, thanks to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The SPLC, formed in 1971 as an aggressive civil-rights nonprofit law firm, has become the left’s go-to arbiter of what constitutes a hate group. Its pronouncements are quoted without challenge by the news media, and it has an endowment of $300 million, enriched by major corporate donors.

Yet its overly broad definition of “hate” often goes far beyond truly vile outfits to include people and groups that simply don’t toe a politically correct line. That’s why the SPLC two months ago had to pay $3.4 million and publicly apologize to Maajid Nawaz, whom it had falsely labeled an “anti-Muslim extremist.” (He’s actually a practicing Muslim who opposes extremism.)

But that didn’t stop the Star-Ledger last week from devoting an editorial to denouncing New Jersey’s ICE spokesman, Emilio Dabul, for his “links” (as supplied by the SPLC) to “anti-Muslim fanatics.” This, even though the Star-Ledger admitted that Dabul’s own writings “showed no anti-Muslim bias.” It was all guilt by association — right from the SPLC playbook.

Sessions has ordered a review to ensure the Justice Department no longer partners with the SPLC and other groups that “unfairly defame Americans.”

Sessions acknowledged that the SPLC at one time “did important work in South”: As an Alabama prosecutor he worked with it to convict a Ku Klux Klan member who’d murdered a black teenager.

But nowadays, Sessions charged, it uses its hate-group designations “as a weapon” to “bully and intimidate” organizations of which it simply doesn’t approve.

Groups like the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal foundation that specializes in religious liberty — and quite effectively: It has prevailed in the US Supreme Court nine times in the last seven years. Yet the SPLC has defamed ADF as a “hate group,” a label Sessions rejected by appearing before the group.

As Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who’s also been smeared by the SPLC as an “anti-Muslim extremist,” has noted, the group these days is invested more in “profiting off the anxieties and white guilt of Northern liberals” than in actually upholding civil rights.

Sessions’ review is long overdue, and follows other government agencies that have backed away from the SPLC. It’s time for those who still merely parrot its smears to start taking a closer look.

Cleaning up the Swamp via little hiccups only gives our adversaries the opportunities to deploy their usual bag of deviltries: denial, scapegoating, obfuscation, and outright lies.

Mr. President, the American people who have placed our trust in you and doggedly waited for The Storm are losing patience. Meanwhile, the spectre of certain Democrat voter fraud in the upcoming November midterms elections awaits.
