Ahh, the sweet, sweet taste of nothingburger, washed down with a huge slug of liberal tears.
Trump supporters, swamp dwellers, and Americans from all walks of life had their eyes glued to coverage of the testimony by former FBI Director James Comey to the Senate Intelligence Committee this morning.
The hearing was treated like a major sporting event by D.C. locals, who lined up to gain entrance to local establishments for standing-room only viewing parties.
And how’d that work out for them? Oh, about like this:
And they surely are. You really have to go enjoy these photos; I can’t recommend them enough, they are WONDERFUL. There are many of them, all uplifting, all edifying, but this one maybe sums it all up best:
Aww, poor dears; looks like things aren’t quite working out for them as they wish, and it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of fascist assholes. As for the weak, cowardly non-entity Comey: he has once and for all proved himself to be PRECISELY the kind of oleaginous, self-serving shitweasel we sent Trump to drain the DC swamp of. Breitbart has the six most important revelations from Comey’s testimony, my favorite of which would have to be this:
3) The obstruction of justice case against Trump just went up in smoke
Senator James Risch (R-ID) questioned Comey early in the hearing about the possibility of obstruction of justice regarding the investigation of General Michael Flynn. Risch repeatedly questioned Comey about the exact wording used by President Trump to him in private, which Comey recorded in his much-discussed memo.
The exchange leaves Democrat’s hopes of impeachment for obstruction of justice considerably dimmed:
Comey: I mean, it’s the President of the United States with me alone, saying, “I hope this.” I took it as this is what he wants me to do. I didn’t obey that, but that’s the way I took it.
Risch: You may have taken it as a direction, but that’s not what he said.
Risch: He said, “I hope.”
Comey: Those are exact words, correct.
Risch: You don’t know of anyone that’s been charged for hoping something?
Comey: I don’t, as I sit here.
Risch: Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
None of which should be taken to mean that they won’t be back in two weeks with another attempt, of course. They mean to obstruct and hamper Trump in any way they can; in truth, it ain’t so much about defying Trump as it is about defying US. They mean to prevent him from doing what we sent him to Washington to do; they mean to preserve the swamp, they mean to re-establish business as usual.
They oppose Trump personally, sure; they hate him, they loathe him, they’re driven absolutely frothing mad by him. But the thing they hate even more is his agenda. They don’t want the borders re-established and protected; they don’t want a more effective and intelligent war against Muslim terrorism; they don’t want the elimination of the regulatory stranglehold on our economy, the reinvigoration of capitalism and the opportunity and prosperity that will bring, and is already bringing.
As I’ve said: what we are seeing here is the DC swamp refusing to accept the results of the last election, instead launching a soft coup attempt in order to thwart the will of the American people—to put us back in our accustomed place once and for all. No more. No less.
The Comey contretemps has been just a part of that larger effort. It will be forgotten in two weeks, and Comey himself will be relegated to the obscurity that is his meager due. The treasonous, America-hating Left will be on to the next distraction, the next subterfuge.
And Trump will go right on leaving them choking on his dust, as he has been all along. It would seem to be what he does best. Far from being a “flawed” or inadequate President, he is well on his way to being one of the truly greats…just as I said all along he would. You doubters can say what you will about his lack of ideological focus, lack of political experience, etc etc etc—there is nobody I can think of who is better suited temperamentally for this fight.
The Democrat Socialist morons are still pitifully trying to pimp impeachment—for some nebulous reason, in some incomprehensible way, in service of…God only knows. Well, let ’em, I say; I only wish they would, I pray they try. Stop running your fat yaps and do it, libtards; come on, bring it, you lackwits. Do your worst. Just do it, just fucking do it. See what it gets you in the end.
As I keep saying: Trump is stupid, is he? Then what does that make all of those Supergeniuses™ he keeps running rings around, pray tell?
BEST. PRESIDENCY. EVER.
Update! Still think he’s stupid, a dope, in over his head? Still think he’s losing?
Better think again, chum.
It took only four years to build the Golden Gate Bridge and five years to build the Hoover Dam and less than one year to build the Empire State Building. People don’t believe that. It took less than one year. But today, it can take 10 years and far more than that just to get the approvals and permits.
One gentleman from Maryland was talking about a 18-mile road, and he brought with him some of the approvals that they’ve gonna be paid for. They spent $29 million for an environmental report weighing 70 pounds and costing $24,000 per page. And I said, “Do me a favor. I’m gonna make a speech in a little while. Do you mind if I take that and show it?” So I’m gonna show it. These binders on the stage could be replaced by just a few simple pages. How can a country prosper under this kind of nonsense?
I was elected to change it. All of us in government service were elected to solve the problems that have plagued our nation. We are here to think big, to act boldly, and to rise above the petty, partisan squabbling of Washington, D.C. We are here to take action. It’s time to start building our country with American workers and with American iron and aluminum and steel. It’s time to put up soaring new infrastructure that inspires pride in our people and our towns. It is time at last to put America first.
These are all things that real Americans know in their very bones: incontrovertible truths that nobody should have to bother wasting a moment trying to debate.
But never forget: this is EXACTLY the program the Democrat Socialist Party is opposed to. “How can a country prosper under this kind of nonsense?” The Democrat Socialists don’t WANT the country to prosper. They want the country humbled, staggered, brought low; they want the country forever reminded of its flaws, its depredations, its mistakes. They want the country to accept its place as a meek, docile cog in the wheel of global tyranny. They want the country not proud of its unique history and heritage, but ashamed of its supposed shortcomings.
They want us to accept the bit. Take it between our teeth, clamp down, and let them steer us where THEY think we ought to be going. THAT’S why they hate Trump so blindly, so insanely. We spit their bit out; at long last, we spit the damned thing out. And reared, and bucked, and tossed them off our backs.
We can’t be allowed to wander free. Our independence, our ability to walk our own path without their stern direction, galls them worse than a burr under the saddle.
It’s why they have to constantly harp on the sin of slavery, for example. Never mind that slavery wasn’t very much out of the ordinary at the time it was practiced here; never mind that there are plenty of nations (most if not all Muslim) where it is still extant; never mind that we fought a bloody, brutal war costing hundreds of thousands of lives to end it—another thing that sets us apart, and in truth makes us unique in all the world.
Just…never mind. Because reasons. The ultimate takeaway is America sucks, and how dare you think otherwise!
There are other examples, of course—many of them, all equally specious, facile, and as easily dismissed. But back to the larger point:
“While stressing the obvious, the administration is missing the important point. The purpose of capitalism is not job creation.” Amen to that. The purpose of capitalism is not to create health care plans. The purpose of capitalism is not to forge “livable communities” with little gardens outside your standard, government-provided apartment. “The purpose of the capitalist economy is to create wealth,” and that’s why leftists oppose it. They want to be in charge of the wealth, primarily in how it is distributed and how the earning of it is limited.
The left hates capitalism, not because of freedom and liberty — although they do. But the primary (reason) they hate capitalism is that it is the most efficient engine to create wealth for the greatest number of people in a society that has ever been devised. Nobody’s ever claimed it’s perfect. Nobody’s ever said it’s flawless. But it’s better than anything else out there, particularly anything (the) left has to offer. “The purpose of the capitalist economy is to create wealth. Employment and the subsequent distribution of the spoils of an economy are byproducts of capitalism. Since its inception, capitalism has been in a perpetual state of evolution…”
It is inarguable that the United States, in its heyday, created the highest standard of living for the most people in the history of humanity. It is inarguable. This is why the left so opposes it. Because it is a system. It doesn’t have a leader or an ideology attached to it, and therefore the left cannot control it.
And bingo, there we are, right back to the nut of it: Power. Control. I know it may seem I’ve wandered pretty far afield from the Comey comedy act with this update. But if you think it’s all unrelated, well, you probably need to think again.
The Left is being upended, at long last. Their internal contradictions, their unworkable assumptions, their megalomania, their folly—all is at long last being laid bare. In the Soviet Union, you had to stand in eternal lines for toilet paper, or shoes. In Venezuela, they’re paying a hundred and fifty dollars for a dozen eggs—or they were a year ago, anyway; it’s certainly worse now.
Their program doesn’t work. It has never worked. It never will work. Sad, grubby little apparatchiks like James Comey are a big part of the reason why.
