Hemingway creates the new mantra: Remember The Names.
Remember the names of the people and media outlets who willfully perpetrated the Russia hoax. This is deeply sad to watch. But they don't have it in themselves to admit their massive failings. https://t.co/0guw3wG3ra

Keep Molly’s slogan in mind while reading this:
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace exploded in the aftermath of Attorney General Bill Barr’s press conference Thursday morning. Wallace’s mental condition visibly deteriorated during the course of one particularly impassioned rant, in which she smeared Barr as a “shill” and a “human shield” for the President, until she was reduced to repeatedly crying, “Why? Why?”
The grief-stricken Deadline: White House host began her tirade with a number of accusations directed at the President: “As the country’s chief executive, he sat in his pajamas watching Fox & Friends maligning the FBI, maligning Robert Mueller, maligning Rod Rosenstein.”
And watching the Gorilla Channel too, no doubt.
She then turned her ire to Barr: “Rule of law had a deficit because Donald Trump had been kicking it in the teeth for 22 months. And what the country’s Attorney General did was walk in there and back up the guy doing the kicking.”
“Why?” She demanded. “Why?”
There will be a strong wave of trying to bully the press, saying, “It’s over! It’s over! No collusion, no obstruction.”
If you ask me, there ought to be way more than just “bullying” in store for you despicable shitbags, bitch. There ought to be public mockery—harsh, aggressive, and ceaseless. You and your pestilential colleagues ought to be hounded out of restaurants, harrassed in public, never allowed a moment’s peace anywhere you go. You and your dishonest reportage should be spurned and scorned; your private lives should be fair game for investigation and exposure by intrepid muckrakers. Your careers as “journalists” should wither and die from mass disinterest, forcing you to Learn To Code. The enormity of your wilfully destructive crimes demands no less.
There’s a whole helluva lot more schadenfreudelicious dementia and mental breakdown on display here, so much of it that I won’t wade into any more of it for the nonce. Rather, I’ll toss out a couple of the more toothsome morsels from Barr’s press conference.
Attorney General William Barr doesn’t take any nonsense, especially from the liberal media. After his remarks to the press, Barr opened the floor for some questions. CBS’ Paula Reid asked about how Barr has presided over the release of this report, noting on concerns about the redaction process, as Barr’s remarks about spygate are being used in Trump fundraising emails, he’s exonerated him on collusion, he’s cleared him of obstruction, and had words that were generous to the president.
“What do you say to people on both sides of the aisle, who are concerned that you are trying to protect the president,” she asked.
“It just seems there’s a lot of effort to go out of your way to acknowledge how this was difficult for him,” quoting the portion of the remarks where Barr said, Trump “faced an unprecedented situation.”
“Well, is there another precedent for it,” replied Barr.
“No, but it’s unusual that…,” said Reid.
“Okay, so unprecedented is an accurate description, isn’t it,” said Barr.
Reporter: “Given that, why did you and Mr. Rosenstein feel the need you had to take it to the next step to conclude there was no crime, especially given DOJ policy?”
Barr: “The very prosecutorial function and all our powers as prosecutors, including the power to convene grand juries and compulsory process that’s involved there, is for one purpose and one purpose only. It’s to determine yes or no, was alleged conduct criminal or not criminal. That is our responsibility and that’s why we have the tools we have. And we don’t go through this process just to collect information and throw it out to the public. We collect this information. We use that compulsory process for the purpose of making that decision. And because the special counsel did not make that decision, we felt the department had to. That was a decision by me and the deputy attorney general. Yes.”
Reporter: “Did the special counsel indicate that he wanted you to make the decision or that it should be left for Congress?
It ain’t Congress’ decision to make, halfwit. As Barr already told you, that’s his job. Scads of unhinged mental disorder from the Hollywood not-so-smart set to be found here, should your funny bone need more stimulation. But sad, sorry truth remains:
Barr Is Right About Everything. Admit You Were Wrong.
After Trump’s vindication, the liberal media and its allies in government should face a reckoning. I’m not holding my breath.
Nor should you, Chris.
For nearly four years, members of America’s ruling class, especially those in the media, the academy and government, have operated on one central, unquestioned assumption: orange man bad. This stifling orthodoxy led to a blind, counterfactual faith in the theory that Mr. Trump had somehow colluded with “the Russians” (never well defined) to win the election. Again, the specific charges were always amorphous — plastic enough to change as needed. That’s hardly surprising: That’s the way conspiracy theories always work. The Russian collusion hoax was in fact nothing more than a massively multiplayer coping mechanism for people who couldn’t accept the results of the 2016 election.
But why is it not enough to simply acknowledge that you dislike Mr. Trump and disagree with his policies? What psychological purpose does adding the fiction of a conspiracy serve?
Well, it was a reassuring totem—like a toddler’s passy, blanky, or teddy bear—for your basic, run-of-the-mill liberal ignorrhoids on campus, in coffee shops and craft-beer bars, in vegan restaurants, and other such urban dens of hipster iniquity. But for the power-elite operatives of the Swamp who actually perpetrated the thing (and their always-helpful Enemedia rumpswabs), there was a different and much darker purpose: they were desperately trying to sweep the nefarious crimes of the Obama junta and the Clinton cartel under the rug and out of view, before they came back around to bite them all in the ass.
Bottom line: they tried to construct a gallows, from which they hoped to politically hang Trump, on a shaky-at-best foundation of lies. The failure to keep this tottering, slapdash structure from collapsing has now driven the whole lot of them right into batshit lunacy—real, literal insanity—from distraught, weeping “journalists” and celebutards to creepy, slimy hack-politicians like Adam Schitt, Jabba the Nadler, Bernie the Billionaire Commie, and all the other Sleazeball Hall Of Fame dis-honorees.
For the sake of their own mental health, I offer this advice to rattled, addled Lefties drowning in a sea of their own tears or collapsing into drooling catatonia all over the nation: You lost the 2016 election. Trump is, and will most likely remain, President of the United States until at least January 2021. Hillary!™ is not and never will be President. GET OVER IT. At long last, do what you so smarmily demanded Trump guarantee to during the debates: accept the results of an election you lost, rather than try to undo it by subversive, illegal, and treasonous means.
Honestly, though, I hope they ignore my advice and carry on as before with this circus. They’re destroying themselves; they’re depressed, panicked, and completely miserable. They have nothing whatsoever to offer but more of the same bughouse shitshow they’re putting on now, along with the same tired, proven-failure policy proposals that have crashed and burned a thousand and one times already. And if that craptacular combination doesn’t result in the Demonrats’ complete undoing and their eventual banishment to history’s junkheap at the hands of a fed-up American electorate, then the American electorate will damned well deserve what it’s gonna get.
