How Trump Made Sure the Swamp Was Not Drained

Media outlets are reporting that the former President Donald Trump quietly undid legislation that he promised would “drain the swamp” – a phrase and campaign slogan he used since 2016.

After one week of taking the office of the President, Trump immediately penned in his “swamp draining” executive order, an order that required executive appointees to sign the agreement as well.

The executive order reads,

I will not, within 5 years after the termination of my employment as an appointee in any executive agency in which I am appointed to serve, engage in lobbying activities with respect to that agency.

I will not accept gifts from registered lobbyists or lobbying organizations for the duration of my service as an appointee.

I will not, at any time after the termination of my employment in the United States Government, engage in any activity on behalf of any foreign government or foreign political party which, were it undertaken on January 20, 2017, would require me to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, as amended.

The official White House website has removed the link to read the executive order.

In spite of this order, the now former President Trump late Tuesday night signed an executive order rescinding the original order that established lobbying parameters on executive appointees.

Now that this has been signed, his executive appointees can profit from their government work by lobbying.

Trump’s new executive order reads,

Executive Order 13770 of January 28, 2017, “Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Appointees,” is hereby revoked, effective at noon January 20, 2021. Employees and former employees subject to the commitments in Executive Order 13770 will not be subject to those commitments after noon January 20, 2021.

Naturally, those that saw what Trump did were frustrated and furious. Robert Weissman of Public Citizen (a liberal outlet), as reported by the Washington Posthad this to say.

The revocation of the five-year lobbying ban for presidential appointees is the perfect coda for the most corrupt administration in American history. Now, as he exits the White House, Trump is revealing that even that signature policy was nothing more than a prop in his demagogic play-acting before the American people.

The Blaze also points that former President Bill Clinton enacted something very similar when he took office in 1993 to stop some lobbyist actions. This was, however, was also rescinded before leaving office as well, similar to former President Trump.


[17] Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: [18] Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him. [23] These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment. [24] He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him: [25] But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them. [26] Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer. 

Proverbs 24:17-18, 23-26

I have to admit to a fault: a part of me wants to rejoice and mock those that have mocked me. But that is wrong of me and I will not do so. There are times for mockery, don’t get me wrong, but this would not be the time.

And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.

1 Kings 18:27

No glory to myself, and others, but I was saying this long before The WinePress was created – that Trump was an actor. We have already reported many of times on just some of the ridiculous nonsense that that man has said during his presidency – that many of the “God-fearing” ministries and websites dared not touch or address with a mile long pole.

That whole “draining the swamp” stuff sounded real cute, but anyone that has been around a bit, and has their head screwed on correctly and not bewitched by the media, can see this was just total propaganda and more false promises.

[1] Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; [2] Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 

1 Timothy 4:1-2

As I have shown in other reports, Trump was simply a figurehead for next part of the plan to dismantle America. Trump continued what Obama started in many ways. 2008 was the definite beginning of the end of America, as all this nation has done has placed bandages on gunshot wounds. Trump furthered wreaked havoc on the dying American economy, but he did it in a much more subtle fashion and not as open – and other times he was very wide open about it; but the conservative news outlets and professing “Bible believers” kept their mouths shut at some of the most blatantly obvious exploits.

Watch Trump and the banksters laugh at the signing of $6.2T in unstainable debt.

And these videos I posted do not even do it justice. Check out our other reports detailing some of the nonsense that has come from Trump’s mouth, and actions he has taken. And even then: there are still other things I could post, but the time is short. Perhaps in the time to come I might share some more things he did and advocated for.

When the riots at the Capitol broke out, we said it was all by design to create the “new set of rules.” Have you been seeing the military-police state growing for these supposed riots we were going to see today? You think that the military presence is going to disappear? Maybe some small pockets, sure, but the bulk of it is here to stay. After all, Biden in his inauguration speech said that they were going to work to end terrorism. Fill in the blanks.

When the riots broke out, I referenced the Illuminati Card Game, and how there are some cards that simply could not be ignored, as they seemed to clearly depict Trump and his actions played out in real life.

Trump allowed the bigs to get even bigger and gain greater control. Now with Biden as the new Pinocchio, he will no doubt destroy what is left of this economy, and the debt will reach levels the brain cannot fathom.

If you were a Trump supporter, especially one who bought into the Qanon nonsense that Trump was playing 4-D chess to drain the swamp, I am not going to ridicule you. If you still cling to it, then that is a different story; but my point is, realize you have been lied to and repent towards God. If you are not born-again, come to him in humble repentance calling upon his name to be saved. Do you want the truth? Do you want a new life? Do want the way to both? A way to heaven and salvation?

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:6

[31] Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; [32] And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. [33] They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? [34] Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. [35] And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. [36] If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 

John 8:31
