Who’s Really Running the Government? Unelected Bureaucrats?

The Congress and Presidency run by unelected persons you've never heard of.

We are wondering why John Fetterman became “depressed” and was admitted to Walter Reed’s psych ward. Did he realize he really has no power? We also wonder why Dianne Feinstein got shingles when she allegedly has the best healthcare in the world. Wasn’t she vaccinated against it? The rest of us peons have been harangued by our doctors to get the Shingles vaccine for years. I finally did it several years ago and had no side-effects except an empty wallet. Feinstein’s wallet is much thicker than mine. But there may be more to this sad tale of two Senators. It very well could be that we Americans are the victims of unelected bureaucrats, and elections are just creating more figureheads.

Powerless Legislators: ‘figureheads with the illusion of consent’

An article by a man I admire, Shillman Journalism Fellow Daniel Greenfield, shed some scary light on it with his recent treatise called “Who’s Running America?” He said some of the things we’ve been trying to say for years.

“There are staffers who have spent most of their adult lives in the general vicinity of the D.C. area who run both the elected and unelected government. The massive size of the federal machine makes it ungovernable and unknowable even by the army of millions of employees tasked with laboring in it. Few can understand the sheer scope of agencies and departments that break down into infinitely smaller subdivisions ad infinitum.

What granted this runaway bureaucracy a soupçon of legitimacy (besides the various crises social, financial and military that led to its constant expansion) was that there were elected officials who were in theory said to be supervising it and who had the authority to overrule any bureaucrat. Republican presidents in the last 75 years clearly demonstrated that they had little control over that system which conspired to undermine, thwart and in some cases topple them.

During the Trump administration, the administrative state openly rebelled, its members declaring that they were the “resistance”, sabotaging, leaking, usurping, investigating, framing, prosecuting, defying orders and running the country the way that they wanted to. Those four years just brought out into the open what had been going on behind the scenes for a long time.” Daniel Greenfield, Front Page Mag, Shillman Journalism Fellow

Many of us call it the “deep state” or “swamp.” It is a real problem, not a conspiracy theory. Nowhere is it more visible than with Dianne Feinstein who didn’t know she was retiring and ended up in a hospital with a disease that is easily vaccinated against without the nasty side-effects of Covid vaxxes. Or John Fetterman hospitalized in a psych ward from depression that he’s “struggled with for a long time.” Is it actually a coverup for mentally challenged legislators? In all of it, staffers are carrying on their duties for them, claiming that the legislators are doing their jobs and introducing new legislation, when we all can visibly see that they are confused and mentally incapable. The electorate needs to get over their penchant for hating on Trump or DeSantis’ stronger personalities and watch for the incompetence that allows unelected people to run them.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

That’s not even counting the obvious administrative strings on a President who can hardly put two words together without mumbling incoherently or babbling about his leg hairs. Yeah, I’m talking about Joe Biden.

Both Feinstein and Fetterman have offices that continue to give press releases as if everything was normal. We know it is not. Biden’s press secretary is about as competent as a box of broken lightbulbs but still gives press briefings that make our teeth rattle. America is the victim of an underground bureaucracy that threatens the very fabric of a representative government.
