Sledgehammer Alert: Drain the Swamp


I have learned from some inside sources in the Trump Transition Team that massive pressure is being applied from establishment Republicans and from the Left.

They don’t want Trump to drain the swamp. They want to keep the status quo!

What else is new in Washington, DC?

That’s why it is urgent for the Trump Team to feel pressure from you – the ones who elected and supported him.

We must overpower this voice of control and demand that President Elect Trump stick to his guns and clean out the den of vipers in our government as promised.

That can’t happen if the same vile bunch who have always run things are put in positions of power to protect their own turf in this new Administration. Believe me, they are good at protecting their own interests. The Left, of course, wants to derail everything Donald Trump stands for.

Never has he needed our help more. President Elect Trump needs you and me to stand up now and make ourselves heard. Give him the support he needs to fulfill on his promises.


1. Please write a polite but strong letter to the Trump Team stating that you want them to stay true to the promises made by appointing strong advocates of the Trump vision. That means appointing leadership positions to only those who truly are on board with those promises to reduce the power, size, reach and cost of government. Assure them that you support President Elect Trump to pick the right people for the job, no matter how the news media or the establishment may attack. After all, that is what this election was about. That is why Donald Trump has been forced to endure so much in this long campaign. Now is not the time to back down from pressure!

2.  I’m asking you to also promote two important names as nominees for two very important cabinet positions.

First: I have nominated to the Transition Team for Director of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the name Richard Rothschild. He is the outstanding County Commissioner from Carroll County, Maryland. Commissioner Rothschild is a man who has courageously stood up to massive EPA overreach affecting the economy and local government. Against all odds he has fought against the tide and been an effective legislator. He is recognized nationwide for his accomplishments. He knows the players and the devastation these policies are bringing down on local officials. And he is ready to serve if chosen. He will be a fierce advocate for the change Trump has promised.

Second: For Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) I ask that you support to the Trump Team the name Rob Astorino. He is a County Executive from Westchester County, New York and a long time foe of HUD and its policies. His county was one of the first to be sued through the outrageous AFFH rule. He will end this tyranny. The good news is his name has already been promoted to the Trump Team. Now we need to build support for him.

You can send your letter of support for these two candidates and express your demand for the enforcement of the Trump promises through a special website put up by the Trump Team.



It is urgent that your voice be heard right now. Major decisions affecting the future of the Trump Administration and its affect on our nation are being made right now.

The Left will do anything to stop him. President Elect Trump must hear from you today.

As for my two suggestions for major positions in the Trump Administration, frankly, if all that Donald Trump was able to accomplish was to reign in the power and reach of the EPA and HUD,  that would be enough to make his presidency a major success. These two men can bring that about!

Please send your letter of support right now – make it polite but make it strong.

And please help me and the American Policy Center continue to lead this fight with your financial support.

Thank you.
Tom DeWeese, President
