Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Getting kind of hot in here

Truth will out.

The truth of violations of law by the Obama White House, long buried, is being excavated by two private groups.

Judicial Watch has obtained testimony from a top FBI official that Hillary Clinton’s home-brew server emails were found in the White House. This means that Barack Obama’s illegal handling of classified information contained in those emails is closer to being exposed. This implicates him in the same felonies committed by Hillary Clinton that James Comey falsely claimed “no reasonable prosecutor” would pursue.

The details:

Judicial Watch announced today that a senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President. The FBI also admitted nearly 49,000 Clinton server emails were reviewed as result of a search warrant for her material on the laptop of Anthony Weiner.

E.W. (Bill) Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, made the disclosure to Judicial Watch as part of court-ordered discovery into the Clinton email issue.

U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap, to be deposed or answer writer questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

Many kudos to Judicial Watch for their fine work. Back to Lifson for a peek at the other bright light scattering them cockroaches:

A second scandal threat for the Obama administration is also slowly being excavated. Proof is piling up that White House operatives exploited the NSA’s surveillance of all electronic communications in the United States to monitor political opponents. This very long and detailed post by Sundance of Conservative Tree House defies any possibility of concise summary. But by putting together information from the Mueller Report with a ruling by FISA Court Judge Rosemary Collyer, Sundance teases out the clear implications. This requires time and focus to follow but is rewarded by a deeper understanding of how the Obama administration actually did spy on its oppponents, not just on the Trump campaign.

I scanned a bit of the Sundance link the other day, and it IS a high, wide, and deep ‘un. Only to be expected, natch; there are many layers to the stinking onion of Obama/Clinton corruption, conspiracy, and treasonous skullduggery. The effort to start peeling them back and expose the rot is only just beginning, and it ain’t going to be either quick or easy.

More Mueller reax

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?

Anyone?

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:


The Insta-response:

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.

Report drops, hilarity ensues

Hemingway creates the new mantra: Remember The Names.


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.  

One more bite:

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.

History, revised

Ask a silly question.

We’re all heard stories about young children being punished at school by their socialist teachers for drawing or cutting out pretend handguns, or even for pointing a finger on the playground and saying “Bang! Bang!”

And some of us did sound the alarm about the “slippery slope,” years ago, when the forces of political correctness realized how easy it was to start rewriting history by “digitally editing” old historical photos. After all, why NOT remove the cigarette holder from old photos of President Franklin Roosevelt? You don’t want today’s kids to think it’s OK to smoke, do you?

But surely we’ll never reach the point where gun haters in a U.S. government agency will actually start doctoring images to remove the rifles (the arms with which Americans won and have long defended our freedoms) from the hands of American COMBAT SOLDIERS, will we? — altering an image of a soldier in combat, removing the piece of equipment on which his survival depended, to make it appear that U.S. soldiers CARRY NO NASTY RIFLES when they go to war?

They’ll never go THAT far. Right?

Gee, that’s a toughie all right.

Standing in line at the post office the other day, I noticed a poster on display showing eight newly issued commemorative stamps, along with a sheet of 20, behind glass, of one of the new stamps, called “World War I / Turning the Tide.” In the background of this stamp can be seen a biplane, a shell burst, and some barbed wire. In the foreground, a uniformed and helmeted U.S. doughboy strides bravely ahead, holding close to his chest an American flag.

I have nothing against featuring the American flag on a stamp, mind you. But look at the way that soldier’s arms and hands are positioned. You’ve seen men on combat patrol holding their arms and hands in that position plenty of times. But they weren’t holding flags. 

Does it get worse, you ask? Guess.

I emailed artist Mark Stutzman in Maryland, who designed the “Turning the Tide” commemorative and who had earlier drawn the Post office’s popular 1993 “Elvis” and “Buddy Holly” stamps. In his original design, as submitted, had the American doughboy held a rifle in his hands?

He replied: “Hi Vin, Thanks for writing. Interesting that you should bring this up. My original proposal was with a rifle.”
A source familiar with the back-and-forth between artist Stutzman and the Postal Service told me the USPS “Stamp Advisory Committee” was “a little ‘gun shy’ about the rifle being so prominent.” Stutzman declined to confirm that for the record.

“We debated a few options and settled on him holding the flag instead,” Stutzman told me. “It seemed to bring some patriotism forward and helped identify him as American more immediately. Since stamp images are so small, there’s a need for immediate comprehension. In this case the read of hierarchy is WWI soldier, America, and war (barbed wire, plane, smoke)…I am somewhat speculating on the reasoning for why the decision (to remove the rifle) was made since I got information about committee meetings second-hand through the art director. He may be a better source for info and also have a direct line with the Postal Service. Greg Breeding is his name. . . . Super guy and easy to talk to.”

Not so much. 

Imagine my surprise. Then begins the hem-hawing, slithering-squirming, slip-sliding evasion of the old Bureacrat Shuffle.

After several days of ducking my emails and phone messages, art director Breeding, in Charlottesville, Virginia, finally sent me his polite refusal to talk:

“Hello Vin, Thank you for your interest in the World War I stamp. It was my deep privilege to art director this issuance to commemorate America’s role in bringing World War I to an end. Such an incredible part of our history. Regarding your questions, it is the policy of the Postal Service to direct these types of inquiries to Public Relations…”

Said PR guy “will be happy to assist you and, sometimes, he will subsequently involve the art directors and other Postal employees as well.”

Not so much.

Suprynowicz soldiers manfully on in his bootless quest for a simple, straight answer to his query, but the bobbing and weaving from our putative “civil servants” just continues on and on from there. Y’know, like it does. I guess we can maybe take some small gratification from the fact that even these insensate bureauweasels seem to know that their airbrushing of history is something to be ashamed of, cold though that comfort may be.

Sudden-onset NIMBY-ism

Tables: turned. Tune: changed.

Presidential candidate and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker acknowledged that there is a problem at the southern border during a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday afternoon.

“We do have a problem at the southern border,” Booker began, according to The Hill. “Democrats should not deny that we [do]. Nations should have borders, borders should be respected.”

I’m sorry, that was so unexpected a turnabout I’m gonna have to post it again:

Presidential candidate and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker acknowledged that there is a problem at the southern border during a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday afternoon.

“We do have a problem at the southern border,” Booker began, according to The Hill. “Democrats should not deny that we [do]. Nations should have borders, borders should be respected.”

Ahh, but the clumsy about-facing doesn’t stop there.

WASHINGTON — Andrew Yang, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said there is a “migrant crisis” on the U.S.-Mexico border that needs to be addressed.

In February, President Trump declared a national emergency as a way to construct additional physical barriers on the southern border. Democrats overwhelmingly voted to block Trump’s border declaration. Some Republicans joined the Democrats in voting for legislation that would reverse the national emergency. Trump ultimately vetoed the bill.

Yang has said he supports a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants but his immigration reform plan would “reflect the fact that these individuals tried to circumvent our legal immigration system.” During a CNN town hall on Sunday evening, Yang was asked to elaborate on his statement.

Wow. I mean, just…WOW. But we aren’t done yet.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened to sue the Trump administration if it sends illegal immigrants to New York City, a “sanctuary city.”

My, the Racist H888RRRR Bigotry sure is strong with these Democrat-Socialist crawly things, ain’t it?

“It’s illegal. It is just plain illegal. We will meet him in court. We will beat him in court,” de Blasio said, according to the New York Post.

No, it isn’t, and no, you won’t. Wanna know what IS illegal? Your precious “sanctuary city’s” declared intention to defy immigration law and thwart or interfere with federal authorities attempting to enforce it, that’s what. Why, all of a sudden it’s almost as if the whole “sanctuary city” dodge was never anything more than posturing and virtue-signaling by holier-than-thou Proggy assholes, ain’t it? But no, that just couldn’t be right.

Can’t live with ’em, can’t…live with ’em

To quote my own self in Aesop’s comment section: “The question is no longer can we live peaceably alongside such people? The question now is, why on earth would we WANT to?

When their frothing partisan witch-hunt and attempted coup predictably explodes in their faces, they try to gaslight the once and current Attorney general, who accuses the law enforcement and intelligence communities under the illegal Kenyan president of turning the full force of governmental power against his political opponent for political reasons. They feign shocked incomprehension at how using secret intelligence courts and vague malarkey about imaginary foreign influence as carte blanche to go trolling through then-billionaire and current POTUS’ entire life and business dealings is banana-republican at best. Then they turn on their attack dog for failing to manufacture fake news goods, when he and his rabid Shrillarites turn up nothing but a couple of sleazy lawyers self-sliming themselves.

And then double down, and claim there was something, rather than nothing, there, even though they had two years and millions of dollars to find something, anything, and came up empty.

These are not the actions of rational people in control of their faculties.

They are not, despite the likelihood of criminal indictments potentially all the way to the entirety of the last administration, the actions of merely evil people facing the  consequences of their crimes coming to fruition and punishment.

These are people deep in their own fürherbunker, cheerfully directing sweeping counterstrokes by armies long ago wiped out and surrendered, and waving their arms in delusional glee as they imagine their triumphant return to power and the destruction of all their enemies, real and imaginary.

These are not sane, evil people you’re dealing with.
These are insane evil people you’re dealing with.
Cornered, unpredictable, unreachable, and with an army of similarly deranged flying monkeys every bit as irrationally delusional as their psychotic overlords.

They’re either going to have to be put into restraints (gently or not), and then secluded and treated according to the magnitude of their psychoses; or they’re going to have to be put down like rabid dogs.

There is no longer any third option. One does not let a mad man into the cockpit or onto the bridge of a jetliner or aircraft carrier, and one cannot abide them running rampant citywide, creating chaos and mayhem at every place the voices in their head so direct them.

That there is going to have to be an intervention is a given.
Whether they survive it is an open question.

Yep—a question whose answer I find myself giving less and less of a flying fuck either way about with every passing day. The sad, simple fact is that we see so much of this utter batshit lunacy nowadays because Real Americans have indulged it for way too long. As any parent knows, the more bad behavior you tolerate, the more bad behavior you’re gonna get.

My quoted comment above at Aesop’s was in reference to this pluperfect sample of bad behavior from the degenerate Left, an example of just how low they’re willing to go in their race to the bottom of the American cesspool:

Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who was wounded in Afghanistan, was derided the left and accused of “playing the wounded victim” after he called for “deference” in discussions of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Crenshaw, 35, who wears an eye patch after losing his right eye in Afghanistan, has received two Bronze Stars, including one with valor, the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.

He criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar this week for appearing to downplay the Sept. 11 attacks in a recent speech. “It’s terrorists who killed almost 3,000 Americans, we should talk about it that way. We should talk about it with deference,” said the Texas Republican.

Talia Lavin, a New York University journalism professor who resignedfrom the New Yorker last year after she incorrectly identified a U.S. immigration agent as a Nazi sympathizer, slammed Crenshaw as “captain shithead” on Twitter. “The real victim, captain shithead, speaks,” wrote Lavin, linking to Crenshaw’s video.

Freelance writer Rob Rousseau wrote to Crenshaw, “You’re deliberately lying about what [Omar] said you eyeless fuck.” The comment appears to have been removed.

Ryan Cooper, a national correspondent at The Week, blasted Crenshaw’s comments as “fascist propaganda” and claimed the congressman was “play[ing] the wounded victim.” “[C]lassic fascist propaganda technique: whip up a storm of murder frenzy, then operatically play the wounded victim,” wrote Cooper.

I won’t even bother with correcting this jackass; it ain’t worth the bother. He and the rest of his vile, misbegotten breed are not amenable to logic, do not merit courtesy, and deserve not one iota of respect or deference from decent people. They are uninterested in good-faith debate, and—contrary to the occasional assertion of some milquetoast “conservatives”—are not just fellow Americans who may be ill- or misinformed, but who have “good intentions” nonetheless.

No, not hardly. The American Left are rigidly determined to march in the blood-soaked footsteps of their murderous ideological forebears—dragging everyone right along with them, be they willing or no. Their intentions for all who oppose or resist them are anything but “good.” They are beyond reason, beyond rationality, and beyond redemption. The quest for a path to living in peace cheek by jowl with such abhorrent creatures is worse than just hopeless folly; it is dangerous, in all sorts of ways.

Day of reckoning

We can but hope. The whole article is good, but it’s the unexpected twist near the end that really got me grinning:

In ancient times, when nations reached such dramatic inflection points, there were poets, authors, artists, and philosophers who formulated, explained, and preserved for posterity the meaning of events and their impact upon their societies. As I listened to Barr’s astounding testimony, I realized that America was at such an historic milestone.

Who, I mused, will step forward to explicate and place these momentous events into their proper context? Does America have a Homer or a Cicero to properly express the gratitude and exaltation of our fellow citizens at the approach of long desired and overdue justice? And then the answer suddenly came to me as my shrinking brain flashed back to the immortal words of that long ago anthem of righteous adolescent retribution, My Boyfriend’s Back, to wit:

My boyfriend’s back and you’re gonna be in trouble
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)
You see him comin’ better cut out on the double
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

Here’s a link to The Angels’ singing My Boyfriend’s Back on the Ed Sullivan Show. Their performance is at once entertaining and seemingly prescient. As you watch them sing, imagine that they are making eye contact with James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, John Brennan, Bruce Ohr, Lisa Page, Sally Yates, Glenn Simpson, Christopher Steele, and all the rest of the conspirators. It’s pretty amusing.

To a remarkable degree, the lyrics are apt and convey the mood of all of us who have had a belly full of the deep state.

As for all of those swamp dwellers who have corrupted and degraded our government to this historical low point, let me paraphrase the best line in the song: If I were [them], I’d take a permanent vacation.

Where at? Club Fed?

Heh. As I said, we can but hope. I’m not entirely optimistic myself, and in any event much damage has already been done.

Certainly, Trump has been proven right in the most spectacular fashion imaginable. The very people who accused him of treason have been exposed as the real seditionists. The Democrats have suffered a great defeat, and to Trump’s supporters, it’s like election night all over again.

But even though Trump scored a big win, his war with the seditious faction that tried to overturn the election is far from over.

The forces that attempted to take Trump down may be wounded, but they aren’t giving up, and they still wield great power. While Trump certainly has a right to gloat, the malefactors who peddled this hoax from the glossy newsrooms are not sorry one bit—and despite calls for a reckoning, they’re probably going to get away with it.

The fact that this even happened kind of dilutes the victory. While the intelligence “community” and the media have suffered a great blow to their credibility, they nevertheless were able to inflict profound harm on the country as they pursued a partisan coup. The power they wield, and the damage they have done using it, cannot be overstated.

This hoax has seeped into the American mind. It has left the country a more mistrustful, more angry, more broken place than it was. It was all ridiculous from the start, and yet its pushers managed to impact the United States on a profound level. The damage done is proof of their unaccountable power.

This same establishment has already succeeded in frustrating Trump’s agenda from the inside. Two years into office, there has been next to no progress on the wall or ending wars in the Middle East.

Here is what should happen: Every journalist who breathlessly promoted this nonsense should be fired and publicly shamed, and the Democrats who peddled this hoax should resign. The DOJ/FBI/CIA hacks who made a killing on the networks and on their book tours should withdraw from public life in utter disgrace. Trump should declassify everything and pursue those responsible.

But they’re probably going to get away with it.

I pray that he’s wrong, but suspect that he’s right. As long as any hope remains of seeing justice done through an admittedly broken system, we must continue to push its pursuit—because the sole, dreadful alternative is a thing to be avoided if we possibly can.

Take ’em down, take ’em down, take ’em all down

ALL THE WAY down.

Republican Congressman Devin Nunes has forwarded a criminal referral notification to U.S. Attorney General William Barr alleging several “potential violations” of the law perpetrated during the Russia investigation.

The ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee said he is prepared to brief Barr on the alleged misconduct he feels occurred during the investigation into the Trump campaign during the 2016 campaign, Fox News reported.

The letter did not detail any of the violations Nunes is talking about. But in other interviews, Nunes said he has been working on these referrals for two years but wanted to wait until the Mueller report was released before pursuing them.

The rats are starting to scurry in panic:

Appearing Wednesday on CNN, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said it was “stunning and scary” for Attorney General William Barr to testify that “spying” occurred on the 2016 Trump campaign.

Good. You and your as-yet unindicted co-conspirators ought to be scared.

Fired FBI Director James Comey claimed Thursday that he has no clue what Attorney General William Barr meant when he testified this week that federal agents “spied” on President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“I have no idea what he’s talking about so it’s hard for me to comment,” Comey replied when asked about Barr’s remark at a Hewlett Foundation conference. “I think his career has earned him a presumption that he will be one of the rare Trump Cabinet members who will stand up for truth,” he continued, adding that “language like this makes it harder.”

Hopefully you’ll have plenty of time to bone up on the matter in the prison library.

Lying Communist reprobate John Brennan was unavailable for comment, due to having locked himself in the crapper to clean out his shit-stained shorts.

Go get ’em, Devin. Leave no stone unturned in your pursuit of justice; shine the stark light of truth into even the darkest corner. For, as Aurelius Augustine said:

Consequently, if the republic is the weal of the people, and there is no people if it be not associated by a common acknowledgment of right, and if there is no right where there is no justice, then most certainly it follows that there is no republic where there is no justice.

Well said, sir. Let the wheels grind on—slow, but surpassing fine.

Taking it to ’em

Looks like Jabba the Nadler bit off more than he could chew.

I have to tell you there was an exchange yesterday in Washington, Capitol Hill, House Judiciary Committee. C-SPAN has reported that a clip, a confrontation between Candace Owens and Ted Lieu, Democrat, California, has become the most viewed C-SPAN Twitter video from a House hearing ever, in 24 hours, 4.47 million viewers in less than 24 hours.

He’s a dishonest creep, and he did it to Candace Owens yesterday. He played a tape of Candace Owens yesterday totally out of context. He did not play the question she was asked. And in this bite, he’s attempting to convince people that Candace Owens supports white nationalism like Adolf Hitler did — and she ate him for lunch in response. Here’s Ted Lieu up first.

LIEU: Of all the people the Republicans could have selected, they picked Candace Owens. I don’t know Ms. Owens. I’m not gonna characterize her. I’m gonna let her own words do the talking. I’m gonna play for you the first 30 seconds of a statement she made about Adolf Hitler.

RUSH: Now, he didn’t play the question she was asked, and he’s attempting to make it look like here Candace Owens, Turning Point USA — a black conservative — loves Hitler, the only thing wrong with Hitler was he tried to export outside of Germany. Now, most people would sit there aw, gee, complain to the media. But she fired back.

OWENS: It’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in his entirety.

Note ye well what happens when Jabba puts his big fat oar in:

NADLER: (banging gavel) The witness —

OWENS: He purposely presented an extracted clip —

NADLER: The witness will suspend for a moment. It is not proper to refer disparagingly to a member of the committee. Uh, the witness will not do that again. The witness may not refer to a member of the committee as stupid.

So Jabba’s stooge, the reprobate Lieu, tries to smear her with a long-debunked, out-of-context quote, after which Nadler waddles up to falsely accuse her of saying something she didn’t say at all. At which point one has to ask: is there NO lie these sewer-crawling parasites won’t utter? NO low to which they will not stoop? Owens, to her credit, ain’t having any:

OWENS: I didn’t refer to him as stupid. That’s not what I said. That’s not what I said at all. You didn’t listen to what I said.

Oh, he listened. He just had no use for it, saw an opportunity to lie and smear and deceive, and dived all the way in to seize it. It’s just pure reflex with scum like him, more automatic than breathing and every bit as outside his ability to control.

Even if she HAD called the liar Lieu a liar, who the hell cares? If some arrogant, crooked Congressvermin is blatantly and inarguably lying, just how “improper” can it really be to call him out immediately, in front of witnesses and cameras, before the lie gets its boots on? Has dishonesty become so ingrained a part of Congressional routine that it is now an outrage for a private citizen, in the course of being purposefully misrepresented while under aggressively hostile interrogation, to state the simple truth? Is this what the US Congress has now sunk to: that an honest assessment of one of its more loathsome members, made publicly and calmly, is to be considered out of bounds?

Yeah, probably best not to answer that one. But Owens was just getting warmed up:

If you want to know why the Democrats are frightened of Candace Owens, watch the video of her Tuesday morning testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. For example, early in the proceedings, Owens chastised Chairman Jerrold Nadler for misrepresenting her biography: “You reduced it to one sentence, calling me a conservative activist. It wasn’t what I submitted to your office last night and I think that you opened with anti-black bias.” Having demonstrated that she is no shrinking violet, Owens debunked the ostensible purpose of the hearing — that it was convened to examine white nationalist hate crimes:

The hearing today is not about “white nationalism” or “hate crimes.” It’s about fear-mongering, power and control. It’s a preview of the 2020 Democrat election strategy… what they want to say is that brown people need to be scared which seems to be the narrative that we hear every four years right ahead of a presidential election.… White supremacy, racism, white nationalism, words that once held real meaning, have now become nothing more than election strategies.

Owens highlighted her point by describing genuine problems that beset the black community: The failure of the public school systems to teach black children to read and their equally appalling failure to teach minority students basic math skills. She went on to point out that the single motherhood rate in the black community has skyrocketed from 23 percent in the 1960s to 74 percent today, and that there are more black babies aborted than born alive in large cities like New York. She then dropped the hammer as follows: “My point is that white nationalism did not do any of those things that I just brought up. Democrat policies did.”

She continued by heaping scorn on the statistics the Democrats used to support their claims about white nationalist violence. “What they won’t tell you is that they have simply changed the data set by widening the definition of hate crimes… they are manipulating statistics.” She’s right, but it gets even worse. Breitbart notes that “Nadler used a report in his opening remarks on Tuesday at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on hate crimes and the rise of white nationalism in the Donald Trump era that highlighted crimes that took place from 2008 to 2016, when Barack Obama was president.” Owens continued thus:

If they actually were concerned about white nationalism, they would be holding hearings on Antifa, a far left violent white gang, who determined one day in Philadelphia last August that I, a black woman, was not fit to sit in a restaurant. They chased me out, yelled “race traitor” to a group of black and Hispanic police officers who formed a line to protect me from their ongoing assaults. They threw water at me. They threw eggs at me, and the leftist media remain silent on it.

Why, naturally, my dear. You’re the wrong kind of black person, see. Don’t let it bother you; the friends you’re making now are a hell of a lot more genuine and trustworthy, and will stand by you a lot more reliably than the backstabbing, duplicitous frauds you’ve left behind.

Meanwhile and elsewhere, Trump got in some truth-telling and calling-out-of-liars his own self.

“This was an attempted coup. This was an attempted takedown of a president, and we beat them. We beat them. We fight back, and you know why we fight back? Because I knew how illegal this whole thing was. It was a scam,” the president said outside the White House before boarding Marine One for the first leg of a fundraising trip to Texas.

The president then called for Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the probe, which he has repeatedly claimed was a “hoax” and “Witch Hunt!” cooked up by Hillary Clinton and her supposed “deep state” supporters in the Justice Department — saying there was “a hunger” in the country to pursue that probe.

“What I’m most interested in is getting started hopefully, the attorney general, he mentioned it yesterday. He is doing a great job getting started on going back to the origins of exactly where this all started because this was an illegal witch hunt, and everybody knew it,” he asserted, before apparently accusing Mueller and his team of treason.

“They knew it, too. And they got caught, and what they did was treason. What they did was terrible. What they did was against our Constitution and everything we stand for. So, hopefully, that will happen,” the president continued.

“There is a hunger for that to happen in this country like I have never seen before, including all of the millions of people that voted for me. What they did is disgraceful,” Trump said.

“It was an illegal investigation. It was started illegally. Everything about it was crooked. Every single thing about it.”

AG Barr, for his part, has pledged to get to the bottom of the whole reeking pile.

Attorney General William Barr has assembled a team to review controversial counterintelligence decisions made by Justice Department and FBI officials, including actions taken during the probe of the Trump campaign in the summer of 2016, according to a person familiar with the matter.

This indicates that Barr is looking into allegations that Republican lawmakers have been pursuing for more than a year — that the investigation into President Donald Trump and possible collusion with Russia was tainted at the start by anti-Trump bias in the FBI and Justice Department.

The panicked shrieks of OUTRAGE!™—from Enemedia, Democrat-Socialist hacks, and the rest of the Koup Klux Klan, all once so keen on “letting the investigation run its course” and such-like self-serving codswallop when it suited their purposes—are piercing:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in a tweet Wednesday afternoon accused Bill Barr of spreading conspiracy theories and demanded Barr “retract his statement or produce specific evidence to back it up.”

Umm, that’s exactly what the investigation is for there, Chuckles. Don’t you fret yourself any, though, the evidence will be along shortly. Plenty more panic out there, as you would surely expect, which I won’t wade further into now. The thing that interests me is the underlying, undiscussed reason for it, for which we’ll return to Limbaugh.

Now you know what they’ll do. They’ll switch on a dime to new Trump scandals, scandals that you haven’t heard of. New Trump scandals involving Trump money, Trump businesses, Trump this. They’ll move on to something else because once they put it all back together, the objective of getting rid of Trump will continue.

But this, what Barr said today, the importance of this and the symbolism of it has not hit people yet. What Barr said today is going to happen, doesn’t happen. Oh, yeah, we have inspectors general running around making sure that individual cabinet departments, agencies and so forth are clean. But we don’t have, we don’t get what William Barr said is going to happen today.

When’s the last time you can think of the Department of Justice investigating the FBI? Can’t think of it. Oh, there might have been some times in the immediate post-J. Edgar Hoover era, but nothing like what this could be. The tables do not get turned on the administrative state like this. And don’t forget where this is ultimately pointed. Barack Obama and his presidency is where this is pointed.

If we’re serious about finding the origins, and if we’re serious about finding the authorizations, and if we’re serious about finding out exactly who was involved and why, what they did, it’s got to include the hierarchy and the structure of the Obama administration. And the faces of the people on the media today tell the tale.

Annnnnd bingo. Obama, Hillary, Lynch, all the rest of the soft-coup cabal were in it right up to their eyeballs—not just vaguely aware and averting their eyes, but running it—fully, actively involved. There really can’t be much question about that now. These are some extremely dirty players in an extremely dirty game, deploying federal agencies under their command to muck about with the legitimacy of our political system entire. If Barr follows the various threads all the way to their end, he’s going to find them wrapped around some very highly-placed necks indeed.

Meat-beat manifesto

This culture cannot survive. And it damned well shouldn’t.

College promotes men’s cuddling group to ‘redefine masculinity’

Oh, you’re redefining it all right, I’ll give you degenerates that fucking much.

Dr. Christopher Liang, a counseling psychology professor at Lehigh University’s College of Education, recently came out in support of a Philadelphia area “Men‘s Therapeutic Cuddle Group,” a function advertised by Lehigh University in a news release. The Meetup.com page for the group currently has 69 members and the group has held 46 events so far. The meetups are held once every other week.

Organizers have established quite an expansive set of guidelines for attendees. The men attending must be “hygienically sound” and “remain fully clothed at all times.” The group’s organizers state that all cuddling is “non-sexual.” However, they do note that participants may become aroused during cuddling

Of course they will.

and that if that occurs, it should be treated as a normal thing.

Oh, absolutely.

Liang believes that “these types of groups can be healthy and helpful for men and women,” according to the news release.

Most especially for men who wish they WERE women, or believe themselves to be, or who are, y’know, gay.

“Traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful,” the APA’s news release said

Well, it surely could be—to YOU, if you ever get within arm’s reach of me.

while adding that “socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.”

So who advocates such harmful socializing, pray tell? Might it be—hmmm, I dunno, let’s see now—all you fucking liberal degenerate assholes trying to repress innate behavior hard-coded into male DNA and emasculate them instead? Telling boys their natural, immutable male instincts are “harmful” instead of teaching them correct behavior and providing them with positive outlets for their inborn fondness for competition, physical play, aggressiveness, and such? Teaching them to be ashamed of being male, trying to crush out any spark of normal male behavior to instead brainwash them into mincing, namby-pamby, effeminate little pussyfarts? Encouraging grade-school kids to go ahead and chop their fucking dicks off the moment they show the slightest sign of uncertainty about their own gender identity—a perfectly normal and routine part of the process of growing up, one that will work itself out in due course—for Christ’s sweet sake?

Let’s just acknowledge straight up that there are two, and only two, types of “man” who are going to be interested in this “cuddle group” crapola: 1) the exact species of quivering, lily-livered, useless twerp cranked out on purpose by our abominable schools, and 2) gay men. That is absolutely, positively IT.

And I’ll also acknowledge straight up that I have no problem with gay men myself, and don’t give a damn if they want to snuggle up in groups, make cow eyes, and sigh dreamily on each other’s necks til the cows come home, six days a week and twice on Sundays. If they want to call that “therapy,” well, I’m fine with that too. Whatever gets you through the day, fellas. Ain’t really no business of mine.

No, what frosts me about this bushwa is that this isn’t really a legitimate, above-board effort to service a heretofore overlooked market hungry for this sort of thing; no, it is yet another insidious attempt at societal tinkering by Progwits who don’t really care whether it makes anyone genuinely happy or a better, more fulfilled person. The Left intends to rewrite the manual on what constitutes healthy, normal manhood, as the psych prof in charge himself admits, to redefine men as neutered, enervated…well, as women, actually. Being weak sisters themselves, all a-tremble and continuously in need of a “safe space” and a good cry, they hate the thought of being snickered at by far better men than themselves for their sissy-mary pusillanimity.

Ultimately, it comes back to that social engineering I already mentioned. One world; one government; one bland, uninteresting race; one indistinct gender—all distinguishing traits and quirks blurred, individuality subsumed into the collective whole, with the “experts” lording it over the whole sorry shebang. That’s the Progressivist project in a nutshell, folks; always has been, always will be, until either they conquer us or they are stopped. Period. Fucking. Dot.

The nice thing is, I guess, that these self-selected eunuchs show no interest in reproducing, even the cishet binary oppressors among ’em. So all normal Americans really have to do in the long run is just wait them out. They’ll die off quicker than the dinosaurs without our ever having to lift a finger. So we got that going for us.

Lies, lies, nothing but lies

It’s all they have, and all they’ve ever had.

Shortly before Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed his report on the Russia investigation last month, Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., alerted Attorney General Bill Barr to what they described as the “selective” use of emails in Mueller court filings — as well as potential “improper political influence, misconduct, and mismanagement” in the FBI’s original Russia probe.

In a March 8 letter, Grassley and Graham referred Barr to a letter sent to Mueller in late 2017 that alleged his investigators had cherry-picked details from emails to include in court documents, urging him to review the materials. They also notified him that they had asked DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz a year earlier to review the original FBI probe.

Fox News has also obtained the 2017 letter (above) from Grassley to Mueller, which spelled out the lawmakers’ concerns about the “absence of additional context” in the court filings — as well as concerns over how those documents were covered in the media. “The glaring lack of [context] feeds speculation and innuendo that distorts the facts,” Grassley wrote at the time.

That court filing said Papadopoulos emailed another campaign official in May 2016 with the subject line, “Request from Russia to meet Mr. Trump.” The document said the email stated that Russia “has been eager to meet Mr. Trump for quite sometime and have been reaching out to me to discuss,” adding in a footnote that the official forwarded the email to another campaign official asking to discuss: “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips. It should be someone low level in the campaign so as not to send any signal.”

The senators said media outlets then seized on the fragments to report a “Campaign official suggested ‘low level’ staff should go to Russia.” However, they said the full emails — obtained from the Trump campaign — tell a different story.

“In full context, the emails in question actually show that the Trump Campaign wanted someone ‘low level’ to decline these types of invitations,” Grassley and Graham wrote in the letter to Barr.

Anybody surprised? If so, may I ask why, exactly? The remarkable thing is that they were so confident that none of this base deception would ever be unearthed that they were willing to resort to it in the first place. Then again, though, that might have been more a matter of panic and desperation than it was confidence.

Now go get ’em

Do it. Just do it.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) has blocked a resolution to release the Mueller report again, arguing that full transparency should be aimed for instead of partisan oneupmanship, and demanding the release of documents that detail the Obama administration’s involvement in the 2016 election.

Senate rules say that one Senator can block a resolution, and Paul fully intends to use this power until Democrats agree to release information that would give us a much larger understanding of what happened during the 2016 elections.

“It was so scandalous and so unverified and has turned out to be untrue, and yet this was the basis for the beginning of the investigation,” added Paul. “This was the basis for doing something extraordinary.”

This marks the fifth time the resolution has been blocked, but Paul isn’t alone. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has also shot down the resolution, as well as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) who is currently wanting to give Mueller and Attorney General William Barr time to work out the form in which they’d like to release the report to the public. 

Speaking of, the good ship Graham V2.0 just sent an almighty warning shot screaming low and tight over the bow of the USS Comey, already severely holed, burning, taking on water, and listing heavily to port:

Former FBI Director James Comey will be brought back to Capitol Hill to testify about the origins of the investigation into Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign, and he’ll “get to testify in the light of day,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham promised Tuesday.

“Millions of Americans believe that the top level of the Department of Justice and the FBI, they wanted [Hillary] Clinton to win and Trump to lose,” the South Carolina Republican told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “They manipulated the law to let her off, manipulated the facts and the law to go after Trump and that’s a big deal to a lot of people.”

Graham said he’ll ask Comey about the Christopher Steele dossier, including about whether it has ever been verified and if it was the chief reason for a FISA warrant against former Trump aide Carter Page. He said he also wants to know why Trump wasn’t told that there had been a counterintelligence investigation opened against his campaign.

“At the end of the day, how could you write that Clinton did nothing wrong even before you interviewed her, and why did you interview her with two people in the room — her aides — and not under oath?” Graham said he’ll also ask. “Most people don’t get that treatment.”

Comey knows the jig is up:

Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday condemned President Donald Trump’s calls for a possible investigation into how special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia inquiry started, adding that it creates a troubling precedent.

During an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Comey was asked about whether he feared possible counterinvestigations.

“I don’t fear it personally. I fear it as a citizen,” he said. “Right? Investigate what? Investigate that investigations were conducted? What would be the crime you’d be investigating? So it’s a terrible cycle to start.”

Gee, Jimbo, worried much about the brilliant light of truth being turned your way, you son of a bitch?

Simple justice demands that the scoundrel Comey not enjoy a single night’s restful sleep, spending most of his every day quaking with terror over the scarifying prospect of being held to account, until such time as justice is visited upon him at last. You want a real look into “Russia collusion” and all that flowed from it? By all means, let’s have ourselves one.

“I agree with James Comey about one thing — that there ought to be an investigation. But he ought to be answering for his role in this. He ought to be answering for his actions. Andy McCabe ought to be answering for his actions.”

“There was smoke, and enough smoke to justify investigating, and obviously there was overwhelming evidence that the Russians were interfering in the election to hurt one candidate and to help the other,” Comey told NBC News on Wednesday.

Hawley said that the government has to have witnesses testify under oath and should investigate the FBI for political bias against Trump.

“The people are supposed to control our government and the people’s elected representatives, including, by the way, the president of the United States,” he said. “Not the FBI. Not people who had a political vendetta against this president. So we need to get some answers here. We need to put these people under oath. We need to get the facts.”

We certainly do, if the people’s ostensible right to a say in their own governance isn’t to be exposed as a hoax on as monumental a scale as the Collusion Delusion itself. Even now, though, shitlibs are determined to keep fucking that chicken:

Two virulent anti-Trump lawmakers headlined a rally outside of the White House on Thursday to demand that the Department of Justice release the Mueller report in its entirety, claiming that it will reveal whether President Donald Trump has “abused his office.”

The protest, staged by leftist groups like moveon.org, People for the American Way, Public Citizen, the Women’s March, and the Center for American Progress, drew a couple of hundred people carrying anti-Trump and “release the report” signs.

And despite newly confirmed Attorney General William Barr’s report to Congress that Mueller and his team over two years found no evidence that Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign nor evidence of obstruction of justice, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told the crowd that the president may well be found guilty of those charges and others.

“All across the country America is rising up,” Blumenthal said, adding that Barr’s summary “doesn’t exonerate the president.”

“There is evidence of obstruction,” Blumenthal said. “That there may well be evidence of collusion with Russia,even if it isn’t beyond a reasonable doubt.”

There can’t be “evidence of obstruction” when there is no underlying crime, you fucking moron.

Blumenthal, Nadler and other speakers repeatedly said that Trump “hand-picked” and “appointed” Barr, even though the Senate had to confirm him for the position.

Nadler implied that Trump is a threat to our country.

“You know that we’ are in a battle over the rules that govern our democracy and over the rules that guarantee that we will remain a democracy,” Nadler said. “We cannot allow a president to carry on sustained attacks on the integrity of our republic and the integrity of our democracy.”

Well strip me naked and call me Shorty: the blind squirrel found hisself a nut by accident. Yes, we are “in a battle over the rules that govern our democracy” sure enough, if not in the way you mean it. Regrettably, though, “the rules that guarantee that we will remain a democracy” have been short-circuited and sputtering for a long time now, thanks to your own side’s eternal antipathy for them, and your all-too-successful campaign to demolish them.

All in all, if the Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight has nothing to hide, then they have nothing to fear from being investigated themselves, no? They should gladly welcome the opportunity to clear away all suspicion and forever secure their reputations and good names. After all, that’s the self-same sophistry the fine, upstanding agents at the FBI like to throw around themselves whenever one of their targets seems nervous about submitting to a few friendly questions.

So sic ’em, boys; let’s investigate these choirboys to within an inch of their miserable lives. Leave not one stone unturned, not one question unasked, not one dank corner peered into. Then we’ll all just see if the shining armor those blemishless, noble chevaliers sans peur et sans reproche strut so self-righteously around the place in winds up tarnished after all.

Spreading the Collusion Delusion blame

Plenty of it to go around.

It wasn’t just the entire American media infrastructure—every broadcast network, cable news outlet, opinion page, political website, blue-checked social media account, washed-up D.C. pundit, unhinged MSNBC host, irrelevant Bush hanger-on, complicit Obama lackey, and Clinton bitter clinger who fell for the Trump-Russia collusion fairy tale. It wasn’t just every Democratic lawmaker and candidate—and a good chunk of the establishment Republican elite—who peddled a bogus story for two years. It wasn’t just every Hollywood actress, producer, legend, fluffer, has-been and late night host who caterwauled for months about Trump’s treachery.

You did it, too, my fellow citizen.

For two years, you helped do the dirty work of the vanquished Hillary Clinton campaign and the sore-loser Democratic Party. You reposted memes on your Facebook and Instagram pages that depicted Donald Trump as a Putin puppet, even suggesting tongue-in-cheek (in a way that you’d call homophobic if the other side did it) that Trump was Putin’s gay lover. You warned your neighbors that Trump’s son was a traitor. You insisted to your co-workers that, yes, Trump’s campaign team was populated by Russian agents and that the president’s attorney general, his secretary of state, his education secretary, his national security advisor, his son-in-law—among others—were Kremlin plants in the new administration.

You swooned over Adam Schiff. You suddenly believed every word of faux conservatives such as Bill Kristol and David Frum and Max Boot; people you had held in contempt prior to the 2016 election. You retweeted every post by the Krassenstein brothers, Kathy Griffin, and Alyssa Milano.

Details and evidence were of no concern to you. You believed all of the following things for no reason other than that you wanted to. Trump told the Russians to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails before the election. (He didn’t.) Donald Trump Jr. colluded with Russia when he met in June 2016 for 20 minutes with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower. (The meeting was a setup between Russian lobbyists working with Glenn Simpson, the head of Fusion GPS which produced the dossier, and Trump’s campaign team. No “dirt” on Hillary Clinton was passed along.)

Mike Flynn promised the Russian ambassador that Trump would drop sanctions against Russia. (No such promise was made.) President Trump told James Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn. (The only evidence that Trump suggested such a thing is Comey’s own memo; Trump was unaware of the investigation into his campaign at the time.)

And so on.

But the most compelling evidence that you refused to accept was right before your very eyes the entire time. In nearly two years, Mueller did not charge one person with so-called “collusion.” Not one associate tied to the Trump campaign was indicted or convicted of any crime related to the election.

And these delusional fantasists aren’t done yet: their abominable political leaders are now demanding the release of the Mueller report entire, along with Trump’s tax returns (both of which would be, y’know, illegal), hoping against shattered hope from the pit of bitter despair that there must be—MUST BE!!!—some obscure hook in there to hang Trump from at last.

Unfortunately for them, their unhinged assertion that AG Barr’s summary was part of a “coverup” intended to whitewash the crimes they just KNOW were committed is easily dispensed with. If it were anywhere close to true, Mueller would have been on every Sunday morning news show that would have him (ie, all of them) the weekend after its low-key, almost shamefaced late-Friday excretion to denounce the Barr summary as fraudulent or in error.

Ooops—he didn’t. On the contrary: he’s been quiet as a church mouse ever since, failing to offer the meekest peep even as the Right was joyously harpooning Team Collusion Delusion in celebration. Kelly closes thusly:

History will not be kind to the Trump-Russia collusion truthers in Congress, the expert class, Hollywood, and the media. But history also shouldn’t forget the role that you, Citizen Collusion Truther, played in this.

Absolutely. The utmost maximum of damage, real damage, must be inflicted on every malevolent shitweasel involved, pour encourage les autres. Such a selective memory lapse makes it inevitable that the same thing, or probably much worse, will happen again.

Meanwhile, Spengler has a fantastic suggestion for bringing the Deep State up short—one I endorse without qualm, quibble, or demur:

Why did the Deep State throw caution to the winds in an desperate effort to frame Donald Trump for alleged collusion with Russia–and failing that, to entrap him in an obstruction of justice case? There are a lot of reasons for the Establishment to hate Donald Trump, but one of them stands out. During the campaign, Donald Trump denounced the Obama administration for having created ISIS. That claim drew ridicule from the mainstream media, but it is entirely correct. Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Trump’s campaign adviser, was head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2012 when the DIA blew the whistle on CIA backing for Sunni Islamists fighting the Assad regime during the then-raging Syrian civil war. As my friend Michael Ledeenwrote at PJ Media on March 26, the Mueller investigation was all about Flynn.

President Trump should pardon Gen. Flynn right now and summon him back to Washington. Mueller forced Flynn to plead guilty to an invented charge of lying to FBI agents, even though the FBI agents who interviewed him about Russian contacts said that they thought he was telling the truth. Now that the Mueller investigation has come up with nothing, the frame-up of Gen. Flynn appears all the more heinous. The Deep State feared Mike Flynn, with good reason. Trump should reappoint him to a top job, and really terrify his opponents.

Flynn’s Defense Intelligence Agency produced a now-notorious 2012 report warning that CIA backing for Sunni rebels fighting Assad would lead to the rise of a new Caliphate movement, namely ISIS. The Obama administration threw its support behind the “Arab Spring” rebellion in Syria, ignoring the fact that Islamist terrorists led the opposition to Assad. This was reported exhaustively in specialist media, for example, Brad Hoff’s July 2016 essay in Foreign Policy Journal: Flynn humiliated the bungling CIA and exposed the incompetence and deception of the Obama administration, and got fired for it.

If the proper authorities turn over the CIA’s rock and examine its underside, the result will be the exposure of an intelligence failure of galactic proportions. The CIA channeled Saudi money into al-Qaeda fronts in Syria and helped move a large part of the late Col. Qaddafi’s massive arsenal to Syria. The jihadists backed by the CIA eventually formed a good deal of ISIS. Heads would roll at CIA. And when I say “proper authorities,” I mean Gen. Flynn in his capacity as National Security Adviser, a job in which he lasted a month before the Deep State set him up and persuaded President Trump to fire him.

Flynn was the only head of a major U.S. intelligence agency who knew just how badly the CIA had bungled, who had done what to whom, and where the bodies were buried. He was the broom with which Trump proposed to clean house. I am convinced that the Deep State put the finger on Flynn and tried to frame Trump, in the belief that the best defense is a good offense.

It’s time to seize the offensive from the Deep State and hold it accountable for its incompetence and its abuses of power, and that means a pardon for Mike Flynn.

Yes indeedy. Actually, Trump should pardon ALL of his people maliciously imprisoned for specious process crimes solely as a means of coercing them into “cooperating” with the Mueller failed coup attempt. He should do so immediately, and he should dismiss the Democrat-Socialist eruption of fury and OUTRAGE!™ that will surely ensue with all the contempt he can possibly muster. If he doesn’t and stands aside while these men are marched off to prison for no crime other than working for Team Trump, it would amount to an affront to both loyalty and justice so greivous as to make even me balk at continuing to support him.

Well, except for the treacherous lowlife Cohen, that is. Him, they can hang or stand up against a wall for all I care.

Update! Brennan: mastermind or moron?

John Brennan, folks, I do believe was the centerpiece of this. He was Obama’s CIA director. The most amazing thing, if you go back — and there are montages we put together, any number of people have put together of all the 1,000 percent certitude statements that Trump was going down, that Trump had colluded, that Trump was an agent, that Trump was a puppet, that Trump was under the influence of Putin and the KGB.

John Brennan’s saying all of this for at least two years. And even a week before the Mueller report comes out he’s assuring everybody that there are gonna be final indictments of Trump’s family and so forth, and he was saying this with literal certainty.

Now, the question is, was he just making this up? Don’t laugh. Stick with me here. Was he just making this up because he knew what the objective was and he was on the team of people trying to pull it off and he knew what they were gonna do no matter what the evidence said? Or was he being lied to by people who were furnishing him information?

Now, if he was being lied to, ’cause my point is that the special counsel’s office had been leaking like a sieve throughout even though the public has been told that we haven’t heard a word from Mueller, Mueller is the integrity of process, not saying a word, appearing anywhere, blah, blah, blah, blah. People in that office, somebody in there had to be telling Brennan something.

Somebody was lying to John Brennan for two years. Somebody that he trusted. He is the former CIA director, and he got scammed and played by somebody, or a series of somebodies, for at least two years. It’s either that or he never knew anything, was so confident that his team was gonna come up with something to get rid of Trump that he put it out there without knowing for certain what they had or didn’t have.

Which of those two seems the more palatable to you? That somebody that he trusted was lying to him day in and day out and that he believed it. Or, that he was so convinced because he knew everybody on this intel team that was looking for different on Trump, he just knew they were gonna come up with something because he just knows what a rotten guy Trump is because I think Brennan has personal hatred for Trump beyond which we can even imagine.

The point is he could not have been more wrong, and he’s the former CIA director. So was he set up? And by whom? I could go either way on this. I could be made to believe either of the scenarios I offered.

I have a third option to propose: that Mueller WAS the shadowy eminence grise skulking about behind the other Koup Klux Klowns’ hapless boobery, the primary organizer of the whole sordid clusterfuck. But remember what I’ve always maintained about Ogabe: cunning does NOT preclude either stupidity or incompetence. Remember, too, that it was Ogabe who appointed him as CIA chief. That’s a surefire indication of incompetence all by itself, no matter who we’re talking about.

The Mueller “investigation” was a hurry-up op laid on by a passel of half-assed, bungling slimeballs desperate to cover up their equally hamfisted attempt to rig the 2016 election as, to quote the utterly contemptible Smirky Strook, an “insurance policy” in case Trump won. Ogabe and his clueless cabal have tripped over their own big clumsy clown shoes time and again: Benghazi, Fast & Furious, the Russia “reset,” Her Herness’s illegal tinkertoy server and the ludicrous wiping of same “what, you mean with a cloth”?, the disastrous removal of Ghadafy, etc. So why on earth would anybody assume competence from them this time?

On rare occasions we should actually feel grateful that the schlubs infesting the halls of FederalGovCo are indeed such dimwits, such complete mediocrities. If they weren’t, this latest brazen attempt to subvert representative democracy might well have succeeded. Thanks to the myriad deficiencies of the federal Keystone Cops, it didn’t.

This time.

Misbehavior, miscalculation, misfire

What the Mueller witch hunt was really all about.

It wasn’t about who Trump was — it was all about what Trump promised. It was about the survivability of the swamp.

From the very start, the Obama presidency focused on crushing conservative thought and detaching the country from the Constitution. Undermining the 2nd Amendment with Fast and Furious, forcing Americans to purchase a product they didn’t want with ObamaCare and preventing conservatives from forming support networks by unleashing the power of the IRS against them. His policies greatly increased the number of Americans on food stamps and doubled the national debt to $20 trillion. And for this, the propaganda media labeled him the greatest president ever because, in their anti-American world, he was. So it was no surprise that Obama sided with America’s sworn enemies by brokering the disastrous one-sided Iran Deal and assisting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

The swamp had to make sure the American people never found out about the little and big names behind the hundreds of crimes committed in order to advance Obama’s and the media’s anti-American agenda.
  
And as president, Hillary would do just that. She would make sure the changes made by the Obama administration in dismantling American values would continue, and the illegal tactics used would remain buried. For this accommodation, Hillary would now be able to accelerate the unabated flow of cash from all corners of the globe into the Clinton Foundation coffers.

It was a sweet deal, but it all ended the moment when Trump hit 270 electoral votes. And as we know, Hell froze over, pigs began to fly, and Trump entered the Oval Office, and for the first time in their political careers, Obama, Clinton, and members of the swamp contemplated the real possibility of prosecution.

And since that reality could never be allowed to happen, it was all hands on deck and the start of the unthinkable — an actual political coup attempt against the President of The United States that included the most massive hoax investigation ever perpetrated on the American people. 

The fly in the ointment, and the one factor not considered by the swamp intelligentsia, was the makeup of the person of Trump. For one, the conspirators never imagined a person could withstand a two-year barrage of 24/7 fake negative news coverage along with a slew of “America be damned,” political obstructions via Congress. They never figured that a person like Trump existed. A man with the stamina of someone 40 years younger, who brought to Washington the assets he acquired as a businessman in the rough and tumble city of New York as well as the command of the TV audience he gained by his many years as a television host.

On March 22, 2019, the bottom fell out of the last vestiges of the coverup as Mueller handed his report absent any proof of Trump/Russian collusion to new Attorney General William Barr. But only part of the most insidious abuse of power in Americas’ history had been dealt with.

It won’t be dealt with completely until the conspirators are in prison for their seditious crimes…which itself is letting them off light, if you ask me.

Believe all the wymryns!!!

Will Gropey Joe find himself thrown under the bus? Or will the Democrat-Socialists hypocritically betray #MeToo victims and their own self-proclaimed “principles” to protect yet another of their own higher-tier serial sex-abusers again?

A top Democratic National Committee (DNC) official sided with former Vice President Joe Biden over Lucy Flores, the former Nevada lawmaker accusing Biden of grabbing her shoulders, smelling her hair and kissing her head at a 2014 campaign event.

DNC finance chair Henry Munoz said he doesn’t believe Flores because he doesn’t think she was ever alone with Biden at the event. Latino Victory Fund, a progressive group Munoz co-founded, organized the event where Flores said Biden kissed her.

“As the organizer of the rally in question, I have thoroughly reviewed photographic documentation from the event, and spoken to nearly every principle in attendance, as well as staff associated with the event. To the best of our recollection, at no time were Lucy Flores and Vice President Biden alone,” Munoz wrote in a statement he posted to Twitter on Sunday.

Munoz said he was close friends with both Munoz and Biden, but asserted that “at no time were these two leaders alone together and I, and the organization I cofounded and those in attendance, do not believe that circumstances support allegations that such an event took place.”

Munoz’s defense of Biden appears to have misrepresented Flores’ account. She did not claim she and Biden were alone when the alleged incident happened.

Hell, in all the myriad photos and reported accounts I’ve seen so far documenting Gropey Joe’s well-known penchant for unwanted and inappropriate fondling, rubbing, squeezing, kissing, hair-sniffing (?!?), and the like, he and his victims were NOT alone, but in public—quite often on a stage, in front of a crowd. But it figures this DNC slimewad would try to turn this aside via weasel-words; that’s just one of the things they do.

Gropey’s problem here is a common one nowadays for Democrat-Socialists, particularly the old guard. Having long been accustomed to his bad behavior being indulged or quietly ignored, he suddenly finds himself swamped by the rapidly-shifting tide of Lefty standards for acceptable behavior. It’s understandable, in a way: when your party’s standards and principles are written in quicksand—subject to complete reversal in half a heartbeat without warning, constantly being altered to appease the very outermost fringes of your political base of unhinged, perpetually-aggrieved lunatics—who could possibly keep up with it? And if you’re an upper-echelon-elite type who’s accustomed to wielding great power with total impunity, how could you not be shocked when your number comes up and accountability is demanded of you for stuff you’d gotten away with for years and years? You almost gotta feel sorry for the doddering old fool, really.

Gropey is sure enough a pervy old degenerate though, no fooling. There never was any doubt about that; you’d have a very tough time finding anybody who didn’t know it all along:

Biden’s behavior is so notable that even left-leaning publications have called him out:

  • The Washington Post: “What are we going to do about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden?”
  • Daily Beast: “Dear Lord Would Joe Biden Be a Terrible Candidate for These Times”
  • Huffington Post: “Joe Biden 2020 Is A Terrible Idea In A Post-Weinstein America”
  • VICE: “Joe Biden Is the Last Person the Democrats Should Run in 2020”

Another issue that needs to be addressed with Biden is the allegations that he repeatedly got naked in front of female Secret Service agents who found his behavior to be highly offensive.

Imagine for a moment what the media’s reaction would be if the following photos and videos featured President Trump instead of Biden.

Oh, no need for all that, thanks; anyone who knows his shitlibs is already well acquainted with the state of play here. Enemedia is way more than shameless enough not to fret themselves over how it might look when one of their own finds his butt in the blades and in need of rescue, for flouting the rules they demand the rest of us be rigidly bound by. They just close ranks and lock arms without hesitation, reflection, or remorse. The miscreant issues an apology not for his transgression but for possibly having been offended or put off by it, hustles off for “counseling” or rehab, all is forgiven, and it’s on to the next scandal. Why, he’s a victim himself, when you get right down to it. As are we all.

Nor will charges of hypocrisy give them pause, no matter how apparent or incontrovertible the justification for them. Hypocrisy is their meat, their metier, and their medium. They work in it like an artist in oils or watercolor; it inhibits or otherwise troubles them no more than a fish is inconvenienced by the water he swims in, although shitlibs never disdain to accuse their enemies of it with righteous indignation should they deem it momentarily useful and never bat an eye…thereby compounding their own already-staggering hypocrisy to record levels.

Examples abound, the alacritous about-face in support of gay marriage after revered Democrat-Socialist leaders’ having roundly denounced it only a few short years before being one of the most recent. Of course, Enemedia promptly provided cover for their bosses by conveniently rebranding their politically-expedient hypocrisy as their position having “evolved.”

But maybe Uncle Gropey has, like Her Herness, finally outlived his usefulness to The Cause and will indeed be forcibly put out to pasture. Lifson thinks so:

Joe Biden’s penchant for unwanted touching of women and girls has been a common object of humor on the conservative side of the spectrum for over a decade, ever since he became Barack Obama’s running mate. But even after the dawn of the #MeToo movement, it mattered not at all to the mainstream media and most Democrats — so much so that he continues to be the top choice among Democrats polled on their preference for the 2020 nomination.

But once outed as a creepy groper by Lucy Flores, a Democrat office-holder and former Nevada state legislator who had worked for Bernie Sanders in 2016 and has been photographed recently with Robert Francis O’Rourke, it’s a media scandal. You can call it Democrat privilege or second-class citizenship for conservatives, but the reality is that we don’t matter in the imaginary world the media proclaim to be reality.

Imagine if Biden had been a Republican! He would have been driven from public life long ago.

Now that there are powerful people on the Left who want Biden to just retire and go away, to make room for a candidate with more intersectionality points — race points, sex points, sexuality points, any purported disadvantage that now brings privilege — the blackout no longer applies.

My guess — and it is a pure guess, as I have no connections with the Dems’ inner circles — is that Joe Biden is going to see the wisdom of withdrawing from the race, especially since his son Hunter’s connections in Ukraine are at risk. He’s old and has been making scads of money giving lectures. He has a choice: retire and reap gratitude, honors, and many more lucrative speaking gigs, or else press forward with his candidacy and become an icon of perversion, with his son facing Trump treatment by the media, an old white male whose apologies for his privilege only further enrage the aggrieved.

I’m inclined to agree. Biden was never going to be president anyway; he’s tried and failed, what, about seventeen times already? As an old, white male who’s been repeatedly rejected, with plenty of other deal-breaking skeletons rattling in his crowded closet—plagiarism, influence-peddling, nepotism, a relatively moderate past record, etc—he pushes all the wrong buttons for today’s wild-eyed Woke extremists. He’s a smarmy, transparently insincere, obsequious rumpswab. He’s not very bright.

Apart from his too-evident compulsion to cop a feel off every frail that breaches his plane of vision, Gropey appears to be a more or less garden-variety cis-het-binary of the most uninteresting sort, without so much as a hint of bi-curiousity to liven up his sexual resume. All in all, the Veep slot suited Gropey perfectly, with its primary responsibilities being no more taxing than attending state funerals, dinners, and shaking hands and mouthing inanities at trifling meet ‘n’ greets. As president, though, he’d clearly be in WAY over his head. He may skate out of this yet. But if even one more accuser steps up, he’s surely going to shuffle off into That Good Night, be it Gently or dragged kicking, screaming, and on a leash. He’s nothing but a spavined, broken-down old nag now, and his appointment with the knackers is close at hand.

Update! No sooner do I say it.

A second woman has come forward accusing Vice President Biden of touching her inappropriately.

A Connecticut woman says Joe Biden touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich when he was vice president, drawing further scrutiny to the Democrat and his history of unwanted contact with women as he ponders a presidential run

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos told The Courant Monday. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

Lappos posted about the alleged incident on the Facebook page of Connecticut Women in Politics Sunday in response to a similar account by former Nevada legislator Lucy Flores, which comes as Biden is considering a 2020 run for president. Flores accused Biden of kissing her on the back of her head in 2014, when she was a candidate for lieutenant governor.

Floodgates: open. Dam: overtopped. Biden 2020: done.

Going, going, gone

The Brexit that wasn’t.

It’s April 1st, and this was supposed to be the first business day of a post-EU United Kingdom, with planes dropping from the skies, Mars Bars melting in your hand, and doughty Irishmen of north and south paralyzed in permanent immobility by the psychological terrors of an invisible Berlin Wall that had mysteriously arisen overnight across sleepy country lanes in Killeen. Instead, thanks to Theresa (“Brexit means Brexit”) May, Britain wakes up and finds itself still in the EU. It turns out Brexit doesn’t mean Brexit, but, if you give ’em a couple more weeks or months or years, the political class assures us that one day they’ll be able to agree on which unending and degrading vassal status Brussels should get to impose means Brexit.

In the midst of this uprising by the elites against the masses, enter John Major. No, I don’t know who he is, either. Oh, wait …it seems he was the bloke back in the Nineties keeping the “Most Useless Tory Prime Minister” seat warm until Mrs May came along. Just in time for All Fools’ Day, Sir John argues that to solve the “Brexit impasse” Britain may need a national government – ie, Conservative, Labour, Liberal, Scots Nats, Irish Republicans, Welsh Sheep-Dippers, whatever… A Ministry of All the Non-Talents, to modify Lord Grenville.

The press has already moved on to speculating who will succeed Theresa May. But, really, who cares? If Westminster can’t rouse itself to recover the sovereignty of the United Kingdom, what’s the point of a “Prime Minister”?

They’re all “citizens of the world” now, old bean. B eing such, they’re not in the least fussed over so piffling a notion as “sovereignty.” They’re far too sophisticated for such quaint, archaic twaddle, eh wot?

It is now necessary to have a crash-out no-deal Brexit just to teach a contemptible political class the vital lesson that nobody needs ’em.

If there’s ever to be any Brexit—and there isn’t; the EU will magnanimously allow Brits to keep holding votes until the lowing cattle gets this thing right—it will only be by way of a “crash-out” of one sort or another.

Damage: done

Since this is an NBC (Fake)News post, I’ll need to provide corrections and more honest revisions throughout.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump identified the enemies of his state Thursday night.

At a raucous campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan — his first since Attorney General William Barr reported that the president would not be prosecuted for obstruction of justice and that special counsel Robert Mueller had not established the existence of a conspiracy between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian operatives — Trump listed them by name and occupation.

In this moment, as he tries to turn the corner from two years of a special counsel investigation toward 18 months or so of campaigning for re-election, Trump is using Barr’s four-page letter to portray himself and his supporters as the victims of a conspiracy of left-wing “deep state” elitists bent on defeating their movement at any cost to the country.

Which they were.

“The president is absolutely trying to reinforce the feeing among his allies and surrogates that the media went overboard in its coverage of the Russia investigation, that certain lawmakers were reckless in their claims, and that the investigation itself was flawed in its inception,” said Bradley Moss, a Washington lawyer who specializes in national security issues.

Which is all perfectly true.

“The problem here is that even if the president has legitimate gripes on one or more of those things, his overly aggressive commentary is doing nothing but exacerbating the situation,” Moss said in a text message.

Oh, and directly accusing the president of treason in print, on TV, and in Congress, without a single shred of credible evidence—based entirely on lies, actually—doesn’t?

“There were real and legitimate red flags that justified the investigation. Lawmakers had real and legitimate bases for viewing the existing evidence as reflecting collusion.”

No they didn’t. Quite the opposite, actually.

The contents of Mueller’s full report remain a mystery not only to the public but to the lawmakers who oversee the Justice Department. Yet even Barr’s brief summary acknowledged what Trump has been so unwilling to admit himself: that Russia tried to help him win the presidency.

He doesn’t need to “admit” a damned thing. One usually doesn’t, with politically-motivated accusations that are nothing but lies.

It’s impossible to know exactly how much influence Russian activities had on the election

No it isn’t. They had none at all.

— as compared to the candidates’ messages, their strategies and tactics, the long-running investigation into Clinton’s email

The “long-running investigation” that Comey killed aborning with his spurious and unprecedented “necessary criminal intent” announcement, you mean? Don’t make me laugh, hack.

and other factors — but Trump has been aggressive in denying that Moscow even tried to interfere.

Oh, they tried to sow confusion, uncertainty, and mistrust right enough—just as they always do and always have done, just as American presidential adminstrations do in elections it rightly or wrongly perceives a compelling enough interest in.

But over the course of his presidency, he has shown a deep sensitivity to the suggestion that Russia meddled — even short of collusion with his campaign — perhaps because of the possibility that such an admission could cast aspersions on the legitimacy of a victory of which he is proud.

Or perhaps, just perhaps, because of not the “possibility,” but the absolute goddamned certainty, that the Russia Hoax was a damned lie.

On Thursday night, much of his rhetoric was aimed at re-living that win and painting the Barr letter as a validation.

Which it was. No “painting” necessary, liberal hack.

In Trump’s telling, he was the little-guy target of a powerful government run amok.

Which he was.

“In this country, we cannot criminalize political differences,” he said. “We do not abuse the law enforcement and intelligence power to target our political opponents, where they spy on me. Who ever heard of this? They spied on me. They spied on my campaign.”

Which they did.

Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump’s lawyers, told The Atlantic that the president is intent on investigating people involved in launching the Russia probe now that the special counsel’s work is done.

Which he damned well should.

When his adoring fans chanted “Lock them up” Thursday night, Trump silently soaked in the moment.

As did every last Real American hoping to preserve their right to at least some say in their own governance through national elections, without interference from a meddlesome, wholly corrupt Deep State/Enemedia/Democrat-Socialist cabal unswervingly determined to deny them that right by any means they can contrive. “Lock them up” is the only fitting response to repellent, arrogant machinations as toxic as this. Rabbi Fisher cuts to the chase and explains why it matters:

When a society’s justice system breaks down, the society collapses. When justice is corrupted, the society devolves into chaos. Justice is the foundation of the earth, and a nation’s population needs to know that, at some bottom-line fundamental level, the rules by which all are supposed to play are applied and enforced evenly, fairly. The image of the masked lady of justice holding the scales is evocative: justice must be blind. It may not favor the rich over the poor, the strong over the weak, the favored over the unfavored. When people truly believe that they cannot get justice within the law, chaos inevitably ensues as law-breaking becomes commonplace — because there is no justice. Even an American free-market system needs to revolve around not only just economic principles but also other fair principles that include but are not limited to freedom to communicate thoughts and ideas without fear of repercussions, freedom to worship, freedom to engage in the social enterprise under the rules of fair play, and equal justice under the law. When principles like those are perverted, the social construct breaks down.

The ubiquitous injustice cries out for so much more to be righted. Now that Mr. Trump’s patriotism has been investigated, it is time to investigate John Brennan’s loyalties. He voted for Gus Hall, the Communist Party candidate, to be President of the United States. Although Obama named him CIA head — itself an act worthy of a Special Counsel — what do we know of this man who calls others “treasonous”? Has he lied under oath? Has James Clapper? Has Jim Comey? Did Comey break the law by leaking confidential FBI information, notes obtained in his capacity as FBI chief, to the New York Times? Did Loretta Lynch break the law? How was the Steele Dossier composed? Funded? Will Steele face American justice? What exactly was told to the FISA court? Did Samantha Power or Sally Yates or Andrew McCabe or Bruce Ohr break the law? How was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton campaign involved? Was there an interplay with the Clinton Foundation? And is it conceivably possible that all this went on during the Obama Administration without Obama knowing about it? And if Obama knew: “what did he know, and when did he know it?” And what about his Vice President? Are there other dirty players whose names we do not yet know, who remain as Deep State moles within the FBI and CIA?

We await justice. As we await it for Jussie Smollett. Every person under our system of laws is innocent until proven guilty. Someone like Smollett is entitled to his day in court to clear his name. But not only is he entitled. Rather, the greater society, too, is entitled to his day in court. If he is guilty of doing what he reportedly did, he could have ignited race wars. The hoax was aimed at inducing greater society to deem Trump supporters uniformly as racist, even as Klansmen lynching people of color. It was not just a stupid April Fool’s Joke gone wrong. This was an evil so vile that, if true, the man belongs in prison for years. That would be equal justice under the law.

When there is no equal justice under the law, a society degrades into a Sodom. By now, it is common knowledge that Obama rose within Chicago politics by associating with the likes of Tony Rezko, who arranged Obama’s property acquisition, even as his wife netted a suspiciously high-paying hospital job in tandem with his rise in state politics. His Illinois U.S. Senate election was marked by the unsealing of embarrassing divorce files, first exposing his Democrat primary opponent’s sordid but secret past, then exposing his Republican opponent’s sordid but secret past. The Chicago way. Now Kim Foxx, graduate of Southern Illinois University School of Law, ranked among the bottom ranked law schools by U.S. News, enters for her fifteen minutes.

There must be justice for Jussie Smollett, for Kim Foxx, and thus for our society. The federal Department of Justice can look into it; they have spent so many decades investigating corruption in Chicago that they do not even need a GPS app to find the addresses, and they probably have all the key phone numbers, including the prisons, in speed dial.

Want to hasten and finalize America’s long, slow decline into a banana republic, with all the ugly trimmings the term suggests? It’s easy: first, you demonstrate to all Americans that the widespread assumption of a two-tier (in)justice system and an untouchable, unreformable shadow government is correct, by letting the reprobates behind the Collusion Delusion get away scot free with their crimes. You confirm their darkest suspicions of powerlessness, that even bothering to keep themselves informed politically is a pointless waste of time, thereby destroying forever whatever tatterdemalion shreds of faith in our tainted institutions and processes might still remain.

Then sit back and wait for the fruits of your endeavor to ripen. I promise you won’t enjoy the taste. But eventually, you’ll damned sure have it rammed down your gullet anyway.

Ooopsdate! Gordon says I forgot to link the Fisher article up there, and dang it, he’s correct. Here t’is; sorry about that, everyone.

Don’t dream it’s over

Our third excerpt from Limbaugh this week. What can I say, he’s on a tear.

This was never an investigation. There was nothing to find. There was no collusion. There was never any evidence of it. There was no need for a special counsel. It was a political appointment to satisfy some Democrats and to get rid of Trump. There was no need for an investigation because there had not been any evidence produced of collusion.

All they had was the dossier, so it wasn’t even really an investigation. It was a coup! It was an organized effort to poison the political landscape against Donald Trump. Robert Mueller knew before this investigation began there was no collusion. But let’s give him the benefit of the doubt. They begin the so-called investigation and after a month it’s abundantly clear there’s no collusion, and yet Mueller keeps going. He doesn’t shut it down. He doesn’t make any interim announcement that the investigation has found no evidence of collusion. Kept it going.

This was not an investigation. It was made to look like one. It was categorized as one, characterized as one, reported on as one, but when you get down to brass tacks, it was not even an investigation. It didn’t take two years to discover what Mueller reported, that there was no collusion and no evidence of obstruction. Well, Mueller didn’t report that. Left it up to Barr to conclude. Barr concluded it based on what he read in the report. It was nothing more than the poisoning of the political landscape.

Now what’s happening, the Drive-By Media not shamed, not feeling any remorse, not feeling any disgrace over being totally wrong about this, because it wasn’t an investigation. It wasn’t that they were wrong. It is that they have failed, at least so far. The objective: Get rid of Trump. They have failed at that. Now it’s on to the next phase of getting rid of Trump.

This effort, this silent coup is not over. Do you know that John Brennan met with House Democrats on Tuesday? And I guarantee you it wasn’t to rub their hands together and cry over their failed effort.

So these people think they’re running everything. They’re the guarantors of everything. They are the people who are running the country, running world, determining the United States’ position in the world. Because only they are uniquely qualified by virtue of their birthright, their education, their pedigree, their work histories, their connections and so forth. This guy Donald Trump has totally sent them into orbit and for a loop.

This was never supposed to be able to happen. They have engineered things so that people like this guy can’t possibly get elected. It’s no more complicated than class, folks. It’s no more complicated than a bunch of elites not wanting anybody they look down on being anywhere near what they do. It really isn’t any more complicated. Comey is no different in this than Obama, than Brennan, than take your pick.

That’s what’s so hideous about this. These are a bunch of unelected people who, in their minds, have the right and the responsibility to determine policy and direction and the place in the world of the United States of America. Nobody ever elected ’em to do so. They have never presented their positions, credentials, qualifications to the American people. Yeah, they’ve been appointed, in large part, by people who were elected.

But they have no respect for Donald Trump, and they have no respect for the office of the presidency, and they have no respect for the Constitution.

That much has been made crystal clear by their own despicable actions, thanks very much. But meanwhile, things have taken a VERY interesting turn indeed.

The watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to produce records detailing the FBI response to warnings that a foreign power has comprised then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that Clinton’s server was compromised with malware that caused every one of Clinton’s emails to be copied to a foreign entity, according to a congressman on the House Judiciary Committee.

In July 2018, during the committee’s questioning of Strzok, Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert described a meeting in which named members of the ICIG staff met with Strzok. He said they informed Stzrok of “an anomaly they had found on Hillary Clinton’s emails that were going to the private unauthorized server that you were supposed to be investigating.”

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” Gohmert said.

Now guess who that “foreign entity” is. Go on, guess. For once, I’m not being sarcastic here by pretending that the answer isn’t already obvious to any reasonably well-informed adult capable of feeding themselves. In this case, it really, really isn’t.

John Brennan: Communist threat or Red menace?

You know the drill, folks: a fair trial, followed by a first-class hanging.

Gowdy asked Brennan directly whether the CIA had relied on the (fraudulent, phony, nothing but lies Steele) dossier.

“No,” Brennan answered. “It wasn’t part of the corpus of intelligence information that we had. It was not in any way used as a basis for the intelligence community’s assessment that was done. Uh, it was, it was not.”

Just the first of many, many lies from lying liar Brennan.

Now, there are questions about Brennan’s truthfulness in that testimony. 

GEE, YA THINK?

On Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) tweeted that “a high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report…Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.”

For what, pray tell? He’s lied to you already, and plenty; it is unequivocally clear exactly what kind of “man” he is, what his word might be worth. Is there any reason whatsoever to think he’ll turn on a dime, break character completely, and start telling the truth NOW?

Balderdash, and to hell with all this pussyfooting around. If you want more testimony from this contemptible blackguard, fine. Swear him in not before some tail-chasing Congressional “blue ribbon panel,” but on the stand in front of a judge and jury in federal court. Let a prosecutor ask the questions, not some oleaginous, preening Congresscritter. Indict the bastard and arrest him via massive FBI commando raid at 3 AM, complete with assault rifles, helicopters, and at least one tank; require CNN to provide full multiple-camera live footage, under threat of grievous bodily harm if necessary, the resultant footage to be rebroadcast hourly for the enjoyment of Real Americans. Investigate Brenner’s seditious activities, try him for them—and, should we lack the fortitude and national self-respect to see him swing after conviction, then let him spend the rest of his miserable life rockin’ orange, along with his co-conspirators. ALL of them.

And I do NOT mean some swank-ass country-club lockup with tennis courts, jacuzzis, surf-n-turf for dinner prepared by professional chefs, and daily massage therapy, either. I mean fucking Marion, Sing Sing, or ADX. I mean the kind of hard-ass joint where he has to keep his baggy white ass pressed against the shower wall purely in self-defense. The kind where you get a half-hour each day to trudge a circle around the yard in manacles and leg irons, then bunged back into your cage with your psychopathic housemate for the other twenty-three and a half. Lock ’em up, throw away the key. No parole, not even a hearing. Ever. Just three hots and a cot and all the sex you can handle, forever.

Brennan’s “oops, my bad” routine doesn’t exactly square with his behavior over the past three years. He was not a bit player in the Trump-Russia collusion hoax—some suspect Brennan was one of the masterminds behind the entire operation from the start, sowing the groundwork for Russian election interference claims.

For two years, Brennan has tried to finish what he failed to do while in office: Doom the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Senator Paul should follow through on his threat to have Brennan appear before a public congressional committee as soon as possible. President Trump should authorize the immediate declassification of Brennan’s January 2017 Intelligence Community report to determine whether any of the evidence included political opposition research authored by a British operative and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Then the American people can decide who is the real traitor.

Hell with that too. Let a jury decide. And then let true justice be visited upon Benedict Brennan & his merry malefactors at long last. Questions, Rand Paul has ’em:

Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) spoke on the U.S. Senate floor to offer an amendment to the House-passed resolution on releasing the Mueller Report that demands more information on the origins of the Obama Administration’s decisions concerning the investigation of Donald Trump and his campaign, particularly the use of the unverified and patently false Steele dossier.

“What we need to discover, and we do not yet know, was President Obama involved? Was this done for partisan purposes? Was this done to try to elect Hillary Clinton?” Sen. Paul asked on the Senate floor. 

OH, I think we all know well enough, and the answer to all of them is a flat, resounding “HELL YES.” Mo bettah:

Specifically, Dr. Paul’s amendment to H. Con. Res. 24:

  • calls for the public release of all information and communications involving James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Susan Rice, Barack Obama, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Loretta Lynch, Bruce Ohr, or anyone else in the Obama Administration concerning the Steele dossier or investigating Donald Trump and his campaign;
  • calls for John Brennan, who allowed the Central Intelligence Agency to spy on computers of the Select Committee on Intelligence of the Senate, to testify under oath and provide to Congress all his records and communications regarding the 2016 election;
  • calls for James Clapper, who lied to the Select Committee on Intelligence of the Senate about a secret surveillance program that was gathering all phone data of people in the United States, to testify under oath and provide to Congress all his records and communications regarding the 2016 election;
  • calls for the public release of all of President Barack Obama’s communications concerning the decision to investigate the Trump Campaign; and
  • calls for the public release of all communications or reports concerning the decision not to indict Hillary Clinton or the Clinton Foundation.

Yes indeed. Stick with it, Rand, and stick it to ’em. The crimes committed by these bilious pustules were gross, audacious, traitorous, and intolerable. They MUST NOT go unpunished. Period fucking DOT. Roger Kimball brings it on home:

The whole Russia-collusion fantasy, of which the Mueller investigation was only the desperate centerpiece, has cost the taxpayers untold millions ($30-$40 million for the Mueller investigation alone), it has destroyed the lives and careers of several people whose only “crime” was to have been in the orbit of Donald Trump, and it has gravely damaged public faith in the impartiality of our intelligence and security institutions to say nothing of what public faith remained about the media. It is imperative that people like John Brennan, James Clapper, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey are made to understand—and that the public can see that they have been made to understand—that the heads of the FBI or the CIA or the Office of National Intelligence do not have a veto over who gets to be the president of the United States.

John Brennan never missed an opportunity to say he regarded Donald Trump’s behavior as “treasonous.” James Comey cannot stand in a forest looking up at the sky without reminding us that he regards Donald Trump as someone who is “unfit” to be president.

But here is the catch: it doesn’t matter what they think. The awful truth is that they do not get to pick the president. We, the people, we “deplorables” and “irredeemables,” do. The president is right. There must be an accounting. Those public servants who broke the law must be investigated and, if warranted, indicted.

Those journalists who abandoned their responsibility to report the news in order to campaign for one side must be exposed and shamed. The fact that Chris Matthews fails to experience a gratifying frisson running up his leg when he contemplates Donald Trump does not relieve him of the elementary responsibility to report the news fairly and accurately. This he, along with so many of his peers, has failed to do, and they have failed spectacularly.

The president was right to call for an accounting last night. He has the power to make sure that it happens, that it happens quickly, and that it happens fairly. Now is not the time to “move on.” It is time to clean house. Then we can move on.

Damned skippy, Rog.

One nation, indivisible

Brass tacks and harsh realities.

Let’s stop pretending. Let’s stop accepting the ruling class’s lies. And let’s stop lying to ourselves. America has changed. There used to be one standard, one set of laws, one set of rules. Now, there are two.

The one set of rules for normal people is designed to jam us up, to keep us down, to ensure that the power of the powerful never gets challenged.

And the one set of rules for the elite can be summed up like this: There are no rules.

Why do you think our elite is so eager to pass new laws and regulations? Is it because normal people like you and me are running wild in the streets? No, of course not. They don’t want to regulate political campaigns to make sure elections are fair. They want to regulate them so they will always win and we never will again. They don’t want a Green New Deal because they care about the weather in 2219, but because they want to take our power and our money for themselves. They don’t want to ban our guns because we’re dangerous to other Americans but because, armed and ready to defend our rights, we’re dangerous to their power.

Do you, even for a second, think any of the rules, regulations, statutes or laws they propose are even going to be applied to them? Do you see the DOJ ever indicting some liberal Dem or some pliable submissivecon for “campaign finance violations?” We know the answer to that because Hillary is wandering around the woods, with a goblet of screw-top Chardonnay glass in her withered paw, free as a bird.

This injustice is poison to our country. This injustice is what makes republics fall apart, when the worthless ruling class pushes its contempt in the people’s collective face so hard and for so long that the population finally screams “The hell with this!”

It can’t continue. It won’t continue.

It SHOULDN’T continue. And if it’s allowed to much longer, then we should all just shut the fuck up and learn to enjoy this sorry state of affairs, because it’s exactly what we deserve. Via Ross, more on our disgraceful two-tier (in)justice system:

It was obvious from the first that Hillary Clinton, via Fusion GPS, was the creative force behind the Russian collusion hoax. The euphemism “dossier” could not disguise what was soon revealed to be a concoction of opposition research lies. Worse, Clinton’s accusations were produced in collusion with Russian agents—“dossier” author and former British spy Christopher Steele relied on old contacts in Moscow to relay unverifiable gossip—in order to discredit the outcome of a presidential election.

As for holding President Obama and his administration responsible for their many criminal actions? I don’t know why journalists write columns raising this possibility when they know it will never happen.

It doesn’t matter who is attorney general when the Justice Department remains packed with Obama loyalists. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s slow-walking of Trump appointments for two years has kept the deep state in power. Justice from that quarter seems unlikely. But those aren’t the most important barriers to justice. There will be no special investigator into the Russia hoax.

Talking about uncovering the miscreants behind the hoax is good for clicks and polling. Doing something? Years of further investigations likely would alienate milquetoast suburban moms and the vast majority of blacks. It is not smart politics. Trump needs to peel off some of those voters, and going after Clinton and Obama would be counterproductive to his reelection hopes.

A few high-profile, lower level agents may feel some heat, but not the top dogs. I doubt if the investigation would rise to the level of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, or former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. All three would get us close to President Obama. No one is going after Obama, ever.

Over and over, Trump’s voters have been told the next investigator would be an honest cop, like Gary Cooper in “High Noon.” This time, Clinton and Obama’s criminal shenanigans would be called to account. Don’t make me laugh.

I hope she’s wrong, but fear she’s right. Lots more to this piece; read it, if you have the stomach for it.

Stop laughing? No way

Rush is wrong. Well, kinda-sorta.

It validates a hoax to applaud the fact that Mueller found nothing. There never was anything to find! There never was any collusion! There was never, ever any evidence of collusion! Therefore, there could never, ever be any evidence of obstruction of justice.

The dossier was the sole reason all of this happened, and it was created by Hillary Clinton and Robert Mueller knew it! It was paid for by Hillary Clinton. It was commissioned by Hillary Clinton. It was written by somebody paid by Hillary Clinton, Christopher Steele, working with a guy named Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS, and it was used by the FBI, who also knew that it was total crap to get a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump administration.

There never has been any collusion between Trump and the Russians. And for those of you who remember the report, Mueller says, “Well, there were many, many efforts by the Russians to contact members of the Trump campaign, to infiltrate.” That’s a bunch of garbage as well. The FBI is who infiltrated the Trump campaign, not the Russians. It wasn’t FBI who put informants like Stefan Halper and Alexander Downer into the Trump campaign. It was the FBI that recruited members of the Trump campaign.

There’s no evidence of the Russians having done anything here! So cheering this validates. “Look, Mueller didn’t find anything, yay!” They wanted to find something so bad. Now, you might be saying, “Well, Rush, if it was a hoax, how come Mueller exonerated Trump?” He didn’t! In case you haven’t noticed, the media is off on a new tangent now. They’re demanding to see the whole report because Mueller said, “I can’t really clear Trump on obstruction. I can’t find any evidence, but I’m gonna have to leave this up to the attorney general.” This is not what prosecutors do! Prosecutors don’t acknowledge possibility of criminal behavior if they can’t find any.

So the media and the Democrats now have an open roadway to impeachment on the basis of obstruction. And just like this hoax, they don’t have to prove a damn thing. They just have to create media narratives, day in and day out, president obstructed, Mueller couldn’t prove it, but he couldn’t rule it out. That’s all these idiots like Schiff and Swalwell and Jerry Nadler need to keep plugging away at impeaching Trump, which they’re gonna do.

None of that is wrong exactly, at least in purely ideological and philosophical terms. So stipulated: the Mueller “investigation” shouldn’t have happened; it was a mere ploy—an underhanded, purely partisan political move to cover up criminal wrongdoing by the Obama junta, as well as an act of self-preservation on the part of the Deep State.

But all the things in the last paragraph of my excerpt, which Limbaugh asserts have been enabled by the Mueller fizzle, were going to happen anyway. And they always were—those that aren’t already happening. Anybody who thinks the Left will be given one nanosecond’s pause by their Collusion Delusion debacle is kidding themselves. They’re even now contriving their rationalizations and excuses, saying it’s “time to move on,” any kind of juggling they have to do to keep those balls in the air, no matter how preposterous or transparently calculating.

So yeah, we should by God keep cheering—and heckling, deriding, pointing and laughing, rubbing their noses in it. All too soon we’ll be confronted with their next muddled, sleazy gambit, so fully enjoying any win we score over them is useful prep for the next round. The battle with the Left, the Deep State, Enemedia, and both Uniparty wings is only beginning; the question was never how low they might stoop in pursuit of our destruction, but whether Real Americans would find mettle enough to destroy them first. Smearing the Left’s faces with their own shit is a morale booster for our side, and that ain’t nothing. Name ’em, shame ’em, and never let up for one second. Like, for instance, this:

61 Hacks Who Peddled Russian Collusion And Should Never Be Trusted Again
Since 2016, some big names—both inside the government and out—have peddled the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy with such vigor you’d think they invested their life savings in Reynolds Metal Company. Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has closed the door on such hysteria, let’s take a look back at the Most Mistaken Men and Women in America (and the world).

Remember: not ONE of these slimewads is ever going to admit error, confess culpability, or express contrition. Neither are they going to back off and slink away into quiet if disgraced retirement, their tails tucked between their legs. Believe it: even now there are those among the 61 names who are plotting the next act of this eternal shitshow, and when the curtain rises the rest will be applauding like trained seals for it. Think I’m joking? Think again, chums.:

If American institutions—public and private—are ever to regain even a modicum of trust and legitimacy, a full reckoning must occur. If it does not—if those responsible refuse to explain, fully, their culpability, their actions, their decisions, their outrageous rhetoric, their lies—then those institutions will become husks, empty shells. A fate they will deserve.

Ideally, this reckoning would proceed on two tracks: first, each affected institution would investigate itself; second, the government would use its powers to mount a comprehensive investigation of its own. The latter would examine governmental misconduct, but also—as did the 9/11 and other commissions—the misconduct of all relevant actors, public and private.

But even to make this suggestion is to laugh. We all know that none of this will ever happen. The media will spend not one nanosecond in introspection or soul-searching—neither as an industry, nor as individual organizations. It will instead—as it is already doing—pour its energies into retroactive self-justification and desperate hair-splitting to keep the dream alive. Mueller did not exonerate Trump! He only said he couldn’t “establish” that any collusion took place, not that he could prove that no collusion took place! And he explicitly declined to exonerate Trump for obstruction!

The media and their Democratic Party masters will go on like this for, roughly, ever. The massive number of unforced errors they committed during the whole fiasco—the huge catalogue of false stories they broadcast and published—they will excuse, as again they already are excusing, as examples of their righteous zeal to get “information” and “news” to the public as quickly as possible. There will be no reckoning, and no one will pay a price.

The government, or parts of it, likely will conduct quick, desultory “investigations,” the purposes of which will not be to get to the truth but to “do something” so that they can say they did. The posture will be “We investigated this, found a few process missteps, reassigned one or two people and rebuked others (we won’t say who), and you can trust us now. We cleaned our own house.” Only a fool or a true believer will believe a word of that.

So what, then, is to be done? Here’s a suggestion. A lot of money is donated and spent by the Right every year. Why not commit a couple hundred grand of that to a small team of investigative reporters and researchers to do the job that all the complicit organizations will not do? To do what the press ostensibly exists to do but will not? Granted, such an investigation—lacking subpoena and other official powers—will be far less effective than a real investigation with teeth. But since we know the latter will never happen, why make the perfect the enemy of the as-good-as-it’s-gonna-get?

Here are some of the questions I suggest they look into. This is by no means a comprehensive list, since I am far from a leading expert on SetUpGate. Therefore I further suggest that, once the money is committed and this new investigation gets rolling, those leading it immediately consult the people named above on what lines of inquiry to pursue. Or, even better, why not hire some of them?

And THAT’S the point at which some of these, umm, curious types will start dying in odd, mysterious circumstances, eventually showing up on the Clinton Body Count page in due course.

Which doesn’t mean they aren’t excellent questions, nor that we should shy from demanding answers for ’em. It’s now time to take it to ’em, without letup or surcease, precisely as one of our most capable and aggressive generals—the sainted Thomas P Jackson—would do were he still with us. Stay on their asses, relentlessly; not a moment’s peace should they know, for the rest of their miserable, worthless lives. In other words, we absolutely must keep up the skeer, people. Victory will require not one jot or tittle less of us.

Reptilia

With apologies to actual reptiles for the insult.

One of those iron laws of life that will not go away, despite every attempt to pretend otherwise, is the Opposite Rule of Liberalism. Whatever the Left is howling about at the moment, you can be sure something like the opposite is the truth. Their need to deceive and their natural habit of projecting their sins onto others, combine to create a predictable part of Progressive culture. Wherever they are focusing the attention of their cult, find the spot 180 degree the opposite and you are getting close to the truth.

The release of the Mueller report is one of the great confirmations of this rule we have seen since the the Left’s reaction to the Tea Party. In 2015, as the Clinton campaign was struggling to deal with the slow releases of e-mails from WikiLeaks, they started howling about Russian hacking. The claim was Boris and Natasha had secretly gained access to the computer systems of the Clinton officials and the DNC. The point was to have the media focus on that rather than the contents of the e-mails being leaked.

The Russian hacking conspiracy soon morphed into Russian collusion and we have close to three years of frivolous investigations and media coverage about alleged collusion between Trump and Boris. The truth of course, using the opposite rule here, was that it was the Left colluding with the Russians, or someone, to undermine the election. That was really just the tip of the iceberg, as it turned out to be the FBI and the Obama White House conspiring to undermine the election. Once again, the opposite rule of liberalism holds.

Again, this is the tip of the iceberg. For years, the media has been peddling this nutty conspiracy, while at the same time waging jihad against what they consider to be conspiracy theories. The Progressive media is full of pink hat types scolding about the proliferation of conspiracies on line. CNN spearheaded the de-platforming of Alex Jones on the grounds he was spreading falsehoods. In truth, Alex Jones is a rock of sober-minded empiricism compared to the aluminum foil hate crazies of CNN.

Think about how the Alex Jones types respond to their conspiracy ideas versus how the Left responds to their theories. The guys worried about the lizard people are spending their time learning about lizard people and interstellar travel. They create on-line groups to compare notes. The Left, in contrast, forms mobs to attack local statuary, believing the statues are casting evil spells on the locals. In comparison to the Left, the people worried about the lizard people come off as sober-minded and prudent.

Of course, the Left will never let go of this. It will be their JFK conspiracy, operating as a rallying point until Trump is gone. Mueller probably tried hard to find something he could use to support the theory. He was no doubt under intense pressure to find something to confirm it. His report being sequestered will feed a new round of conspiracies, but in reality, the opposite rule will apply here as well. The details of his report will reveal it was the FBI and Obama’s White House all along. That was the grand conspiracy.

Precisely so. But what else were they going to do? After their plot to steal the election failed, they had absolutely nothing to go after Trump with other than to try to distract from their own skullduggery by pinning it all on him—and nothing to lose by trying it. That would have had the added potential benefit of washing themselves clean of their own slime and insulating them from any consequences, had the thing only worked. But even this sleazy, squalid little failed conspiracy is still only the tip of a much larger iceberg:

Trump wins. America wins. The progs and their insane enablers and followers lose another one. The Russia Collusion story joins the Fake Narrative Club of Christine Blakely Ford, Jussie Smollet, Fast and Furious, Mattress Girl, UVA Rape Victim, Covington High School kids are racists, etc.

On foreign meddling, I have written before about another country’s meddling in our political processes, a meddling which far outweighs any by Russia. One guess. Yes, Mexico! See posts here and here. Not only do Mexican senior officials, all the way up to the Mexican presidency, openly encourage their citizens to vote in the US and tell them how, but our own President Obama made clear he would not prosecute foreigners voting; the Dems continue that policy by encouraging aliens to vote and making it easier and easier for them to do so. Time to build the wall and to shut down some of Mexico’s fifty-two diplomatic and consular offices in the US.

The whole Russia collusion investigation hoax formed a major component of the ongoing Demo/Progo effort to undo the 2016 elections, in other words, to engineer an America coup (here and here). This attempt involved getting foreigners to vote (as noted above), insisting on no voter id requirements, use of vote harvesting, calling on electors of the Electoral College not to vote for Trump, incessant recount demands, a faked up dossier paid for by the Clinton campaign, calling for a military coup, misuse of the FISA process, the weaponizing of the IRS, EPA, and our law enforcement/intel agencies for use against American citizens, and more. The progos were and are willing to destroy our core institutions in order to gain and keep power.

I know everybody is sick of investigations, but for our country’s sake, we need to investigate and hold accountable all those who ginned up and perpetuated this colossal hoax. Heads must roll. Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Strozk, Page, and others of that ilk must face justice. The list goes on: Rice, Powers, Yates, Lynch, Clinton, Podesta, and, yes, Obama need to be haled before investigators to explain their reptilian actions, their effort to do nothing less than rip and flush away the Constituion. The fake news journalists and those “experts,” including former senior and mid-level officials, who appeared day after day pushing this bogus story, citing non-existent evidence need to be shamed and fired. Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi, to name just two in Congress, who almost daily told us of the “mountain of stone cold evidence” of Trump-Putin collusion, need to be reprimanded and forced out. We need justice for the people falsely accused and smeared, some of whom have gone bankrupt with legal fees trying to defend themselves against the Lord High Inquisitor.

I am in no mood for mercy or for moving on.  Get’em all; dig out, expose, and punish the snakes in our system who sought to pull off this coup.

Yes, let’s. And while we’re naming and shaming here, spare not the Koup Kucks Klan:

The emotional restraint and intellectual mooring that once distinguished Beltway conservatives from their counterparts on the Left is gone. Instead, the NeverTrump Russia conspiracy theorists have been as unhinged, gullible, and dishonest as the most craven commentator on MSNBC or in the Washington Post.

This rogue’s gallery includes people who at one time were some of the most trusted influencers in the Republican Party. Bill Kristol, the founder of the now-defunct Weekly Standard, accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars from a left-wing tech billionaire and Trump foe to “defend” the work of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He was in on the Russian collusion story from the beginning, clearly parroting Fusion GPS talking points in a July 2016 article, “Putin’s Party.”

Kristol, now the editor-at-large of what appears to be a satirical “conservative” blog called The Bulwark, has an obsession with Russian collusion that borders on insanity; in November, he tweeted a remake of a “Fiddler on the Roof” tune to include the word “collusion” several times. Just last month, he posted an article about Paul Manafort’s 2016 meeting with an alleged Russian political operative at a D.C. cigar with a one-word title: “Collusion,” he tweeted. (He has dozens of tweets with the word “collusion.”)

Kristol’s Trump-Russia collusion fixation has been shared by his pals Jonah Goldberg and David French at National Review. Although Goldberg has publicly insisted he is a “collusion skeptic,” he has promoted several collusion plotlines, including the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Russian lobbyists and Trump’s campaign team, including the president’s oldest son.

There are other lesser-known NeverTrumpers who have peddled the collusion hoax over the past two years: Tom Nichols, Jennifer Rubin, Evan McMullin, and Rick Wilson to name a few. None of them appears to be backing down or owning up to their own participation in this seditious plot.

What the Trump-Russia collusion hoax has laid bare is that so many of the people who Republicans trusted and respected for two decades were undeserving. They are as fundamentally dishonest and intentionally ignorant as the those on the Left. Their animus for the president and his supporters exceeds that of the most faithful Democratic partisan. Their eager participation in the greatest political scandal in American history—intended to overthrow a Republican president—should never be forgotten. Or forgiven.

I gots no problem with that. But as for these buffoons backing down or owning up, it strikes me as an unreasonable expectation. Their core falsity placed them in an impossible position, one from which there can now be no dignified way to extricate themselves. What I said above applies to them too: what the hell else are they going to do but try to brazen it out as best they can? Nobody should be looking to them for contrition or humility; they’re between a rock and a hard place here, with no good options at all that would suffice to restore the credibility they so rashly threw away.

The contemptible NeverTrumpTard cucks have been happily residing as squatters in the Russia-collusion house of cards from the very start; when the roof fell in, it fell on them all. So how could the cucks not be crushed right along with everybody else in there? Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of assholes, I say.

What REALLY happened

The smoke clears, the dust settles, the fog lifts.

In sum, we have endured a two-year ordeal in which the president of the United States was forced to govern under a cloud of suspicion — suspicion of being a traitor, of scheming with a foreign adversary to steal an election. This happened because the Obama administration — which opened the probe of the Trump campaign, and which opted to use foreign counterintelligence spying powers rather than give Trump a defensive briefing about suspected Russian infiltration of his campaign — methodically forced its suspicions about Trump into the public domain.

It is not just that FISA warrants were sought on the basis of the Steele dossier, an uncorroborated Clinton-campaign opposition-research screed that the Obama Justice Department and FBI well knew was being peddled to the media at the same time. There was a patently premeditated stream of intelligence leaks depicting a corrupt Trump-Russia arrangement.

After Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election, Obama, after doing virtually nothing about Russian aggression for most of eight years, suddenly made a show of issuing sanctions, seizing Russian assets, and expelling Russian operatives. He then rushed the completion of an intelligence assessment that would ordinarily have taken months to complete, so that it would be issued on his watch; and presto: The public was told not only that Russia interfered in the campaign, but that Russia did so because Putin was trying to get Trump elected. (Of course, the public was not told that Obama had known what Russia was doing during the campaign, but concluded it was too trivial to warrant a response; and the public was not reminded that, just days before the election — when Russia’s perfidy was well known to the Obama administration — both Obama and Hillary Clinton chastised Trump for daring to suggest that an American presidential election could be rigged.)

The intelligence assessment provided Obama’s intelligence agencies with a pretext to brief President-elect Trump on the Steele dossier. That, in turn, gave the media — previously skittish about the dossier’s sensational, unverified allegations — exactly the news hook they needed to publish it. Weeks later, as the FBI continued relying on the unverified Steele dossier in FISA-warrant applications, the FBI director, in public testimony, not only disclosed the existence of a classified counterintelligence investigation but gratuitously added that Trump’s campaign was a subject of the probe and that an assessment would be made of whether any crimes were committed — signaling to the world that Trump was a suspect in what would be, if proved, one of the most heinous crimes in American history. Then, finally, more leaks to the media triggered the appointment of a special counsel in the absence of actual evidence that the president had committed a crime.

You want disclosure? Me too. But let’s see all of it. Not just Mueller’s report. Let’s see everything: all of the memoranda relevant to the opening of the investigation, all of the testimony at closed hearings, all of the FISA-warrant applications, all of Rosenstein’s scope memo.

If we’re going to have accountability, let’s have complete accountability.

Damned skippy. Full disclosure would make a damned fine kickoff for a thorough investigation of the investigators, and bring the Deep State malefactors—ALL of them, to include the Clintons, Obama, Lynch, the FBI/DoJ, Enemedia, the whole filthy, corrupt lot—face to face with real justice at last. T’is a dream I have; I surely don’t expect it to happen. But that’s the one and only thing that might stand a chance of recreating—not restoring, it’s way too late for that—Americans’ faith in their broken, dysfunctional, entirely corrupt government.

Update! From Surber’s lips to God’s ears:

Mueller cleared President Trump.

Now it is Obama’s turn to face the music.

We can start by squeezing the little finks like Lisa Page and Peter Strzok until they squeal, and then go up the ladder — Susan Rice, Jimmy Clapper, John Brennan — until we finally get Mister Big.

And afterward, President Trump can file a RICO lawsuit against the Clintons, the Obamas and the DNC. Bankrupt them.

They tried to fundamentally transform America into a banana republic without the bananas. There is a price to pay for such ambitions that we must extract for the sake of the Republic.

There ought to be, yeah. To quote Captain Picard: make it so. I’m with Robert:

Now, it’s time to train the full weight of investigation and prosecution on those who perpetrated this fraud. Most of them should die in prison. The mainstream media organs that parroted the lies and ignored the truth should all go out of business. There are many lessons to be learned from this travesty, but here’s one of the most important:

The mainstream media is completely biased, compromised, corrupt, and aligned with the most nefarious elements of the US government. Ignore it, and do all you can to counter its disinformation and influence. Support the Alternative Media!

Gibbets and crows, baby. Gibbets and crows.

Schadenfraudalicious

Gonna need to borrow a few of Ace’s notorious pudding cups over here. You know what for (explanation here).

teary-farmer.png


Speaking of Madcow, looks like she has Teh Sadz again. Ace—who is also doing a bang-up job himself, and having a ball doing it—offers his scaly, spike-covered shoulder in sympathy:

Check it out if you, like me, get cry-boners.

Oh man, seriously. She sounds like the little boy saying that Old Yeller will get better, he just needs to rest a bit.

I won’t bother re-posting the vid of Cartman refreshing himself with a cool, satisfying drink of Scott Tenerman’s tears again, but you all know I’m thinking it, right? Meanwhile, Schlichter frets over the damage done:

The damage to our country is hard to calculate right now. It will take a while to fully appreciate how this betrayal by our alleged betters has undermined the foundations of our Republic. But the signs are ominous. Normal people, those of us who build, feed, fuel and defend this country, have been awakened to the utterly incompetent and thoroughly venal nature of what Instapundit Glenn Reynolds correctly identifies as the U.S. franchise of a useless trans-national elite that prioritizes its own power and perks over the welfare of those is purportedly serves.

We’re woke now. We see that the people we’ve been electing – the people they allow us to elect – are really all the same. Only the labels are different, but the objective – their own money and influence – is identical. Except for Trump, who neither respects the elite nor plays by its shabby rules. And that’s why they threw away any pretens of honesty, integrity or respect for the rule of law to drive him out of the Oval Office they covet.

Congrats. This whole fiasco has convinced Americans that there are two sets of rules in America, one for the elite and one for us, and that the justice system is just a scam designed to help the elite hold onto power by punishing those who would challenge its rule. That’s poison to a free country, which is probably okay with our scuzzy elite since it does not actually want a free country. It wants a happy-face dictatorship, and it wants to do the dictating.

So, what next? What do we do?

Follows, a few suggested courses of action—all of which I endorse, some of which may actually happen. His conclusion I endorse also, albeit with a caveat:

The Mueller report marks the proverbial end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end, of this grave crisis. It’s a crisis where our Republic is in danger of becoming something very different, and something very much less free. Eliminating the Electoral College, letting in millions of illegal aliens, packing SCOTUS, banning guns – these are all leftist policies designed with one singular purpose, to dispossess you of the power to participate in your own governance and to ensure that we can never again elect someone like Trump who might challenge the elite’s stranglehold on control. We won this battle, but there is a long campaign ahead. Get ready, because if we let up then we will lose our liberty forever.

We’re already much farther along down those shadowy paths than we should ever have allowed ourselves to come, and it’s by no means certain that we’ll ever find our way out of the woods. The implosion of the Mueller witch hunt is undeniably a win not just for Trump but for all of us, and a big one at that. But as Kurt says, it isn’t the end of anything; the Left will quickly shove it down the memory hole, then move on to their next sordid scheme. They’ll keep right on coming, until they are not just defeated but utterly destroyed. And next time—or the next, or the next, or the one after that—we might not be so fortunate.

Take ’em down, take ’em down, take ’em ALL down!

This, too, is a mea culpa we shall never, ever see.

On Sunday a vindicated president tweeted “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”

So now what?

For starters, Twitter, Facebook, Google and other Silicon Valley tech companies should remove all Russian collusion conspiracy theorists from their platforms.

After all, social media networks didn’t hesitate to ban Alex Jones of Infowars and others for spreading misinformation and/or conspiracy theories, so why not ban House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Schiff, Eric Swalwell, John Brennan, Beto O’ Rourke and scores of media hacks who’ve all done the same?

And what about Google? Will it continue to allow search results that yield now-debunked conspiracy theories surrounding Russian collusion and the Trump campaign? Or will they do the right thing and scrub misinformation and lies to stop the hoax from perpetuating?

Via Ace, three guesses on that one.

Google search is hiding auto-completed text related to the Robert Mueller special counsel investigation, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

Using Google search on multiple browsers and on private-browsing mode, the Free Beacon found Google search had an aversion to the search term “indictment.”

Using either “Trump” or “Mueller” as the subject, the following word “indictment” was not suggested even after spelling out most of it. For example, putting “Trump indi” into Google’s search bar does not lead to “Trump indictment” but rather to “Trump India,” “Trump India Pakistan,” Trump India tariffs,” and “Trump Indiana.”

Searching specifically for “Trump indictment,” the Free Beacon found Google preferred the result “Trump indictment advent calendar,” which leads to a humorous story in which indictments of Trump family members are seen as gifts around Christmastime. (The Free Beacon had not previously searched for such a calendar and it was not on our search history.)

As with most things in life, though, there’s a workaround.

Update! Greenwald, bless the nefarious old sod, is still knocking ’em out of the park.


If I gave so much as a single shit about Twitter—which I don’t—I’d have to seriously consider laying aside the vitriolic blog-battles we fought here in the dim and distant past and following the guy at this point. In any event, Greenwald’s output on all this says very good things indeed about his personal and professional integrity, and my cap is duly doffed to him for that if nothing else. No, we ain’t likely ever to agree on just about anything. But I definitely, if somewhat grudgingly, have to confess to a degree of newfound respect for him.
