Several most righteous rips on the failed Mueller/Koup Klux Klowns attempt. First up, Wes unloads:
So the Mueller Report was released yesterday. I haven’t had time to read it all yet. Not sure I’ll continue reading it. At this Point “What Difference does it Make?”
This whole investigation was flat out just an attack on the American People. We Deplorables went against what our elites had told us to do. We were suppose to vote for the anointed one Hillary Clinton. We didn’t and our country has paid the price for 2+ years.
You may not like Trump, you may not have voted for him, you may not vote for him in 2020. The fact of the matter is, a coup against the will of the American people was perpetrated because we refused to do what we were told.
Here’s the thing, We know what we have seen so far. We can all see the crimes. We know that the previous administration weaponized the FBI, shielded a favored candidate from criminal prosecution, abused the FISA court to spy on an opposition candidate, and deliberately worked to subvert the 2016 Presidential election.
Question? Has anyone been arrested and prosecuted for these crimes?
Well, not yet; perhaps not ever. But given Barr’s aggressive, take-no-shit attitude so far, I do retain some small hope. The gear that the whole matter is going to end up turning on is whether the Deep Staters are aware of the fact that quietly burying the traitorous illegalities committed by the Obama/Hillary cabal as usual will spell the end of the country. Millions of Real Americans will take that—not a miscarriage of justice, but an actual renunciation of it—as the final proof that only a blind fool would continue to place any faith in our system of government, throw up their hands, and resign themselves to whatever conflagration or breakup eventually follows. Wes knows this as well as I do, and spins it on out to the bitter end:
What if Nothing Happens? What if Crimes go unpunished? And the Elites and Oligarchs and the political class prove once again that they are just too big to jail?
What then? I could care less that Trump was vindicated. We all knew he was innocent. This was a Coup. What I want and what millions of the American People want is for people to be punished for their Crimes against us.
It’s Time to Hang the Treasonous Bastards!
I’ll close with a quote from my good friend T.L. Davis “If there be Lawlessness, What reason do any of us have for obedience?”
Exactly. In the days to come, we’re going to find out once and for all if the Powers That Be are smart, or merely cunning. Next up, Glenn cuts loose with one of his rare but always excellent longer-form posts, in response to this clueless Tweet from über-clueless cuck David French:
When evaluating the Mueller report, there are important questions beyond the existence of a conspiracy. A free people should ask what kind of man they want at the helm of the world's greatest nation. It should not be this man: https://t.co/M44Tg89Oaf

I LIKE DAVID FRENCH, BUT THIS IS AHISTORICAL BULLSHIT…
I mean, let’s just look at the presidents of my lifetime: JFK: Adulterer, drug user, made his brother (!) Attorney General, shady mafia connections, stole election. LBJ: Adulterer, much cruder than Trump, started Vietnam War. Nixon: Honestly, better than LBJ but the source of the term “Nixonian.” Ford: Nice guy, failed president. Carter: Nice guy, failed president. Reagan: The GOP gold standard, but a multiply-divorced Hollywood actor whose administration was marked by nearly as much scandal-drama as Trump’s. (Just look up Justice Gorsuch’s mother). George HW: Nice guy, but longtime adulterer and failed president. Bill Clinton: I mean, come on. George W. Bush: Personal rectitude in office, though he’s been a bit of a dick since Trump beat his brother. Iraq War thing didn’t turn out too well. Mediocre judicial appointments and little attention to domestic reforms. Gave us TSA. Obama: Far more scandals, and far more abuse of power, than Trump. And does French forget that Trump was running against Hillary?
But at any rate, the American people had a chance to decide if they wanted a man like Trump in the White House, and they decided that they did. And Trump’s now polling better than Obama did at this point in his presidency, and will almost certainly rise in the polls post Mueller report.
I mean, most of our successful presidents weren’t nice guys — FDR makes LBJ and Nixon look like pikers — and most of the nice guys in that office were failures as president. And Trump’s behavior in office is, by comparison with his predecessor, better, if cruder.
And in terms of his actions, well, Trump’s actual performance in office is looking pretty good. The economy is booming, foreign policy is going better than under his creased-pants predecessor, regulations are being slashed, and the courts are being better-stocked than any Republican president in my lifetime, including Reagan, ever managed.
Against that record, schoolmarmish disapproval pales in importance. But you want an America where a better man than Donald Trump can be a successful president? Then you have to make a better America, not least by crushing the power of the existing, awful, ruling class. And guess what: That’s what Trump’s doing. The NeverTrumpers, meanwhile, have chosen to ally themselves with the problem.
That’s because they were part of the problem all along: a clown-car crammed with perennial also-rans perfectly content with their noble-loser status—maintaining an illusion of “loyal opposition” but never actually opposing one damned thing, loyal only to Swampland business-as-usual and whatever perks and privileges they could glom for themselves from it. In one of his patented, blistering broadsides, Sefton covers all the bases:
The Democrat-Left-Media complex is in total freakout mode as they a) refuse to believe this President is not guilty in any way, shape or form, b) are convinced that AG William Barr is covering up his guilt and c) thanks to Mueller and his pro-Clinton team’s feckless and reckless punting on the obstruction angle, as well as verbiage that not only continues to unfairly smear the President’s character but more horribly upends centuries of legal tradition by putting the onus on him to prove he’s not a reprobate criminal as opposed to them proving beyond any reasonable doubt that he is. That is utterly inexcusable, but what did you expect from Robert Mueller? He was, is and always will be an agent of the Deep State Leftist cabal and as such, dragged this whole thing out for more than two years in the vain attempt to find something, anything, with which to destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump, either by removing him from office or essentially kneecapping his agenda.
The latter is what happened and for sure it affected the outcome of the midterm elections in the GOP losing the House. But circling back, the GOP-e at best was diffident or averse to Trump because it, too, is part and parcel of the anti-American globalist enterprise. I find it extremely hard to believe that turds like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell did not know from the get-go that this entire collusion story was a complete crock. Hell, John McStains himself sent an aide to go fetch the fraudulent Steele dossier from the Brits and then was instrumental in disseminating it back here in DC. They knew. They all knew – Democrat and Republican alike. But still they persisted.
Back here in the real world, the President has been “exonerated.” But I put that in quotes because that word implies that Robert Mueller and company were legitimate, impartial arbiters of justice who have nobly executed a fair and just process when the cold, hard truth is that this process was completely illegitimate from the start; they were put there to hang this President if they could, on whatever flimsy excuse they could find or manufacture. And even after ruining the lives of Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort they came up with nothing. Mueller turns my stomach as much as Clinton, Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Priestap, Steele, Halper, Mifsud, Strzok, Page, Ohr, Ohr, Rosenstein and all the other smug, elitist traitors who very nearly pulled off the overthrow of a President and really, by extension, the will of the American people in electing him. And before it gets lost in the sauce, none of this would have happened had Jeff Sessionszzzz not recused himself and then appointed Rosenpenis, who turned around and appointed Mueller with no specific boundaries and carte blanche to do anything he wanted. If there is any justice in this world, all of the aforementioned would be behind bars at Leavenworth for the rest of their lives, or have a date with the hangman for what they tried to do. And what is still going on now in the House of Representatives with such morally bankrupt frauds as Nadler and Schiff.
All things considered, you have to marvel at Donald Trump. The entirety of a feral, criminal bureaucracy and politicians along with a complicit mass propaganda machine was hurled at him non-stop for a period of nearly four years going back to the summer of 2015 when he announced his candidacy, and yet he not only survived, but he thrived. Part of it was because the base and now a growing number of people outside of that base see that he has either kept his word or has done everything within his power to advance the agenda despite the opposition, even from within his own camp. And even despite losing the House (or perhaps as a result of it), the Democrats are in an open internecine war that has exposed who they are and what they believe for all the world to see…and it’s not pretty.
For all the world to see, yes; we can only hope all the world is looking. Elsewhere, David Catron whales on the Last Honest Boy Scout himself.
When special counsel Robert Mueller finally finished his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, he produced a report that confirms much of the criticism President Trump has leveled at him during the past two years. It clearly reveals that Mueller’s partisan investigators were determined to “get Trump,” and that they were frustrated by their inability to do so. This is most obvious in the section dealing with obstruction of justice. As it is phrased in the Introduction to Volume II, “[T]his report does not conclude that the President committed a crime.” An honest evaluation would have stopped there.
Mueller’s team, however, were loath to pursue the honorable course. Their partisan bias compelled them to gratuitously add — after taking eight full paragraphs to explain why they didn’t conclude that Trump had obstructed justice — that they nonetheless would “not exonerate him.” This is the cheapest of cheap shots. It is obviously a cowardly attempt to damage the President with innuendo rather than an actual accusation of obstruction that would eventually have to be supported with proof of “conscious wrongdoing” that Mueller couldn’t produce. Mueller and his minions opted, instead, for good old-fashioned calumny.
This is particularly disgraceful considering the restraint Trump demonstrated during the probe. He could, for example, have asserted executive privilege to prevent investigators from gaining access to all manner of documents as well as several witnesses. Trump is the first president since Jimmy Carter not to invoke that well-established prerogative. Trump also resisted the temptation to simply halt the probe, a power that he does possess under Article II of the Constitution. Mueller ignored this cooperation and chronicled 10 examples of unobstruction in the Executive Summary of Volume II.
In the end, the Mueller probe was an investigation looking for a crime. Thus, it produced nothing but a few process crimes and useless indictments of foreign nationals who will never be brought to trial. It was also conducted by partisan hacks, like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, whose primary goal was to bring down the President. That failed. So, like all cowards in retreat, Mueller and his minions attempted to do as much damage as possible to the President as they departed. That’s why they refused to exonerate him despite finding no real evidence for obstruction of justice. The whole exercise was utterly despicable.
Yes, it was. Now the ball is in Barr’s court. Let’s see if he can score a win for Justice with his handling of it, or if we only get more fancy dribbling.
Never to forget, never to forgive update! Remember. Their. Names.
Sorry, but you don’t get to yadda yadda yadda the fact that there was no Russian collusion just so you can get back to your happy place of Orange Man Bad and pretend like the baseless conspiracy theory you pushed didn’t just blow up in your face. https://t.co/ygU1cCVm4o
