Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Guilty as charged

Time to start another Mueller thread, I believe. The preamble: former NeverTrumpTard turned reluctant Trump supporter Andrew Klavan on who’s the better man.

At one point in the report, Mueller mulls over whether he could prove Trump’s criminal intent to commit obstruction when so many of Trump’s attacks on the investigation happened in plain sight. In other words, it’s hard to accuse a man of being deceptive when he does everything right out in front of you, even when he’s in the wrong. He didn’t even seek to redact the report by claiming Executive Privilege.

Compare that to a president who masquerades as a high-minded intellectual descended from on high to cause the seas to stop rising while he fundamentally transforms our country — but who is really just another Chicago machine pol who uses the powerful institutions of the federal government as partisan weapons. Compare it to a desiccated gothic ruin of corruption and greed who masquerades as an America-loving public servant while she calls ordinary Americans deplorable, racist, homophobic and all the rest.

In other words, in their attacks, slanders and maneuvers against Donald Trump, the agents of the Deep State and their media fellow travelers revealed themselves to be far worse than the obstreperous president they were hounding.

And meanwhile, while they, in the guise of “The Resistance,” have accomplished literally jack-diddley-nothing for this country, the horrid, mean, rotten, no-good, very bad Donald Trump has restored our economy, destroyed ISIS, realigned our foreign policy toward sanity and realigned our courts with the Constitution.

So really, the only difference between Trump and the people who hate him is that he’s authentically what he seems, he’s competent, he’s trying to make things work, and they are living a lie while trying to suck power from the hands of the people into their own.

Klavan, bless his heart, might remain ambivalent in his support for Trump, sure. Fair enough, I guess; he’s entitled to, although his closing ‘graph amounts to a pretty full-throated endorsement. But now let’s have ourselves a look at what Trump is really guilty of.

He acted as any innocent man might who realized he was being framed for a crime his framers, rather than he himself, committed: collusion with Russia, treason of which he was accused publicly by top-level intel agents working for the media, a former president, and the opposition candidate. Trump objected to the coordination, collusion, and conspiracy among his political enemies to commit a crime against himself, the office of the presidency, the American People, and democracy — first, to frame the candidate for the nation’s highest office, and second, to frame the president now sitting in the nation’s highest office.

He’s guilty of feeling sincere frustration against the daily, persistent, and disingenuous political attacks, lies, and speculation; he’s guilty for expressing opinion. He’s guilty for protesting the dishonest witch hunt that is nothing more than revenge for his 2016 victory and his subsequent astonishing successes. He’s guilty of sincerity and honesty, for thinking he’s being unjustly prosecuted and framed by corrupt officials of a corrupt-to-the-core party, some of whom profess to belong to his party but are, actually, working actively against it.

He acted as any innocent man might who would deny the preposterous charges made against him by serious people formerly in power whose favored candidate lost. He acted as any innocent man might who would object to the methods by which these charges were fabricated out of thin air, paid for by the political opposition, manipulated by the media, the goal posts frequently moved, and how the transparent politically motivated story du jour was amplified, distributed, and spun.

He acted as any innocent man should act — by pushing back.

He acted by refusing to lie down while being steamrolled.

He acted by refusing to be railroaded into criminality not of his making.

He acted as any innocent man should, by trying to obstruct injustice

Many supporting links throughout, which as per usual I’m too slack to transcribe. Just go read all of it, people. I would love to just C&P the whole damned thing; it really is that good, and I promise you’ll enjoy it.

Update! Mittens is “appalled.”


Yeah, dry up and blow away, whydon’tcha. Don’t look now, bright boy, but Greenwald just blew the roof right off of all that tripe.

THE TWO-PRONGED CONSPIRACY THEORY that has dominated U.S. political discourse for almost three years – that (1) Trump, his family and his campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, and (2) Trump is beholden to Russian President Vladimir Putin — was not merely rejected today by the final report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It was obliterated: in an undeniable and definitive manner.

The key fact is this: Mueller – contrary to weeks of false media claims – did not merely issue a narrow, cramped, legalistic finding that there was insufficient evidence to indict Trump associates for conspiring with Russia and then proving their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. That would have been devastating enough to those who spent the last two years or more misleading people to believe that conspiracy convictions of Trump’s closest aides and family members were inevitable. But his mandate was much broader than that: to state what did or did not happen.

That’s precisely what he did: Mueller, in addition to concluding that evidence was insufficient to charge any American with crimes relating to Russian election interference, also stated emphatically in numerous instances that there was no evidence – not merely that there was insufficient evidence to obtain a criminal conviction – that key prongs of this three-year-old conspiracy theory actually happened. As Mueller himself put it: “in some instances, the report points out the absence of evidence or conflicts in the evidence about a particular fact or event.”

In sum, Democrats and their supporters had the exact prosecutor they all agreed was the embodiment of competence and integrity in Robert Mueller. He assembled a team of prosecutors and investigators that countless media accounts heralded as the most aggressive and adept in the nation. They had subpoena power, the vast surveillance apparatus of the U.S. government at their disposal, a demonstrated willingness to imprison anyone who lied to them, and unlimited time and resources to dig up everything they could.

The result of all of that was that not a single American – whether with the Trump campaign or otherwise – was charged or indicted on the core question of whether there was any conspiracy or coordination with Russia over the election. No Americans were charged or even accused of being controlled by or working at the behest of the Russian government. None of the key White House aides at the center of the controversy who testified for hours and hours – including Donald Trump, Jr. or Jared Kushner – were charged with any crimes of any kind, not even perjury, obstruction of justice or lying to Congress.

That’s because, pathetic bitter-clingers like Mittens and David French notwithstanding, there’s no there there, and there never was.

Smackdown update! Oh, ouch. Just…ouch.

President Donald Trump joked Saturday that Sen. Mitt Romney could have beaten Barack Obama in 2012 if he fought the former president as much as the current president.

“If Mitt Romney spent the same energy fighting Barack Obama as he does fighting Donald Trump, he could have won the race,” Trump wrote on Twitter, adding “(maybe)!”

He shared a clip of Romney appearing to be emotional as he lost the election in 2012.

Trump has a history of mocking Romney as a candidate who “choked like a dog” in the 2012 election, even saying that the former Massachusetts governor “walks like a penguin.”

“Once a choker, always a choker,” he said.

Is that all, you ask? Not hardly, sez I.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is not at all pleased with Utah Sen. Mitt Romney’s constant attacks on President Donald Trump and even said he is sickened by the idea that Romney could have become President of the United States.

“Know what makes me sick, Mitt? Not how disingenuous you were to take @realDonaldTrump $$ and then 4 yrs later jealously trash him & then love him again when you begged to be Sec of State, but makes me sick that you got GOP nomination and could have been @POTUS,” Huckabee wrote in a tweet on Friday.

“More context-rivals in 08 for sure [they were rivals] but in 2012 I campaigned across USA for him, spoke for him at RNC. He doesn’t have to like @realDonaldTrump as a lot of elitists don’t. But we need flip-flops on the beach, not in the Senate.”

Good, toothsome stuff. Actually, though, Hucklebee is wrong on one count: Mittens quite clearly could NOT have been POTUS. I mean, seeing as how he already got his ass beaten like a big bass drum and all.

Piss off, loser. You might be able to pull the wool over their eyes in Utah, you fake phony fraud, but the rest of us ain’t that blind.

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.

Pushing all the right buttons

Living in their heads rent-free.

If the media were honest, more would acknowledge that Trump’s appeals are logical, even conventional. Incumbents always try to broaden their base, and generally have the extra advantage of time because they have no serious primary opponents.

That’s what Trump is doing, but the really odd thing is how Dems react. Time after time, they lurch to the left when it is obvious they already are far out of the American mainstream.

Yet Leftward March is the only command they obey.

So there they are, rallying around Rep. Ilhan Omar after Trump criticized her for characterizing 9/11 as “some people did something.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted Trump for posting a video of the burning Twin Towers mixed with Omar’s comments.

It was, Pelosi said, “beneath the dignity of the Oval Office” for Trump to post the video, adding that “I don’t think any president of the United States should use the tragedy of 9/11 as a political tool.”

Ah, yes, 9/11 was a “tragedy.” By being so politically correct, Pelosi guts the meaning of the worst attack in American history and avoids using the words Islamic terrorism. Count it as another victory for Trump — and another day where Pelosi is caught between Trump and the far-left loons in her caucus.

Something that has been grating on me for, like, forever. 9/11 was NOT a “tragedy,” dammit, it was an ATROCITY. “Tragedies” are things like earthquakes, fires, floods, and such: usually unforeseen disasters which no one has the ability to control or prevent, events that occur outside all human agency and influence. 9/11 was a murderous act of human will, planned and executed by perverse, ruthless monsters for warped political purposes. It might be more or less correct to call the horror the 9/11 attacks wrought on the victims tragic, but the attacks themselves were not a “tragedy.” As Goodwin says, Pelosi hopes to diminish the impact of the attacks and deflect attention from the motivation of those who perpetrated them by mis-using the word “tragedy.” It is to be fervently hoped that most Real Americans aren’t fooled by such low, slimy dishonesty.

She is said to be a political whiz, but Pelosi keeps falling into traps. Recall that when Omar repeated anti-Semitic tropes, Pelosi first criticized her, but couldn’t deliver the votes for a clear resolution. She ended up settling for a mealy-mouthed condemnation of hate that was so meaningless, even Omar voted for it.

Other Dems, like de Blasio, are falling into Trump’s trap on illegal immigrants. Firmly opposed to the obvious need to secure the border, they accuse the president of being heartless for wanting to build a wall. De Blasio himself went to Texas in a senseless stunt to make those charges last year.

OK, then, says Trump — if you want the migrants here, take them into your cities and states. To which de Blasio responds, Oh, no, we can’t do that — let somebody else bear the burden of our compassion.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey also had a telling response, saying on CBS that Trump is “trying to pit Americans against each other and make us less safe.” He didn’t elaborate on how illegal immigrants would make cities “less safe” but there’s only one possible meaning to his words.

In fairness, some mayors and governors have accepted Trump’s challenge. Dem mayors in Chicago, Philadelphia, Rochester, Newark, New Haven and other blue enclaves raised their hands to take more illegals.

Still, the effect was a political point in Trump’s favor. He was setting the agenda, and Dems were divided over what to do. Confusion among one’s enemies is always desirable.

Yep. Trump’s eagerness to take the fight to those enemies, breaking with established tradition by refusing to remain in the standard Vichy GOPe defensive crouch, is a big part of the reason frustrated conservatives made him President in the first place. He may do things they don’t like occasionally, and some of them may lose faith and jump ship over his failure to keep all of his promises. But speaking strictly for myself, as long as The Donald is in there landing punches on the Democrat-Socialist’s ugly mugs, I’ll be happy to keep on applauding him for it.

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.

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.

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.

UNEXPECTED!™

Kanye and his unabashed support for Trump deftly defended against the liberal OUTRAGE!!! machine by…ummm, Bret Easton Ellis?

Instead of getting outraged, they should have realized that a figure like Trump would seem appealing to him: brash, a gangster, his own man whether you liked him or loathed him, a loner, transparent, a truth teller not to be taken literally, flawed, contradictory, a rebel, awful for some or wonderful for others but certainly not vanilla or middle-of-the-road, incapable as a bureaucrat but skillful as a disruptor. This was also, of course, what a lot of other people I knew liked about Trump in the summer of 2018.

The media became derisive and speculated that Kanye had to be on drugs to say anything of the sort. He’s destroying his career! How could a black man like Trump? Anyone but an idiot could tell what Kanye was trying to say, however garbled and clumsy it was, but given the bias infecting everything in 2018, the press worried that he was having “delusional episodes” and probably needed to be treated for drug abuse. The consensus, in postmortem editorials everywhere, was that he would never have a career again after the slavery comment and the Trump tweets. It was all over for Kanye.

Except for the fact that, true to their ignorant prejudice, the Trumpers they reflexively blow off as “racist” are perfectly willing to flout Hollywood-shitlib assumptions and offer their welcoming support to Kanye for daring to exit the Lefty plantation and choosing a different path for himself.

And then Ellis makes the Tinseltown rubble bounce.

I MET up with Kanye during the week those controversies were exploding across social media. Kanye reached out because he was interested in resurrecting a TV project we had discussed in 2015, which he was now considering as a film. I promptly rearranged my schedule and made the drive out to his Calabasas compound, flittingly apprehensive that I might be meeting, as the media kept reiterating, a man who’d lost his mind.

After being ushered in by security, I was brought into a room where he was multi-tasking: assembling the movie team, overseeing his fashion line, rehearsing new material. In the five years I’d casually known him, I’d never seen him so attentive and focused and happy. This was Kanye at his most lucid, and this afternoon confirmed for me that he was, in fact, sane: his own man, no apologies, not some drugged-out freak gibbering on Twitter. People simply needed to acknowledge — not approve or to embrace — that here was someone who saw the world in his own way and not according to how other people thought he should see it.
 
What Kanye was championing in his Trump tweets was an idea of peace and unity, imagining a place where different sides could work together despite vicious ideological differences — that’s it.

Since November 2016, I had heard that a horrendous economic collapse was about to materialize, the planet was going to melt, countless people would die, the fraught situation in North Korea would send the United States into a nuclear Armageddon, and Trump would be impeached, brought down by a pee tape — leaving no jobs for anybody and Russian tanks in the streets.

We also idly noted that the filmmaker David Lynch couldn’t say in an interview that he thought maybe Donald Trump would go down as one of the great presidents in history, not without groupthink forcing him into apologizing for this immediately on Facebook. And where was a resistance that was so attractive and cunning that it managed to sway you, that maybe made you see things in a broader, less blinkered light?

But the one we had in 2018 seemed bent on advocating mostly vandalism and violence. Trump’s star on Hollywood Boulevard was destroyed with a pickax, an actor resembling a septuagenarian Lorax said “F–k Trump” at the Tony Awards, a television hostess called the first daughter “a feckless c–t” on her TV program, another actor suggested the president’s 11-year-old son should be put in a cage with pedophiles. And all of this from Hollywood: the land of inclusion and diversity. Maybe it was just another episode in the reality show that is still unfolding. Or maybe when you’re roiling in childish rage, the first thing you lose is judgment, and then comes common sense. And finally you lose your mind and along with that, your freedom.

Hoo boy, that’s gonna leave a mark.

Feel-good story of the decade

The REAL Resistance.

Yes. We bullied Antifa. We punched them in the face. We took their flags. And we ate their pizza.

Anybody who can find anything to be unenthusiastic about in that prefatory statement is a fucking cuckalicious twatwaffle, not worth the effort of unzipping to piss on.

First and foremost, I want to boast that I got to punch a commie. In the defense of one of my fellow Americans that was being attacked, I actually got to punch a commie. Granted, he was a weak, noodle-y looking thing, but I got a shot in before the cops stepped in the middle of it and prevented more. I also got a souvenir from one of them. I kept offering to give it back to them if one of them was brave enough to come and take it from me; sadly, the cowards didn’t take me up on it. As I advised readers not long ago, get yourself to a protest.

I repeat my previous assertion, with bells and a big floppy bow on it. Just go read the rest; I absolutely guar-on-tee you’ll love it all to pieces. And bang, zoom, straight into Ye Olde Blogrolle goes Men Of The West.

Refugee problem: a practical solution

Francis calls it a “political wet dream.

John Whiteman, Prime Minister of a First World nation that shall go unidentified for obvious reasons, recently announced a change to his country’s “refugee” policies. He can’t change the law, but he can change how it’s observed in practice – and he has. Immediately afterward, he addressed a group of “refugees” that made it to his nation’s shores:

“Refugees, eh? Yet more than ninety percent of you are young men, all of you look healthy, and it looks like most of you have smart phones. What are you running from, the fathers of the girls you knocked up?

“According to our laws, we have to house you ‘refugees’ here…but only until we can return you to your home countries in safety. So here’s the deal: you’ll be living in tents, in this compound, which you won’t be permitted to leave. There’ll be no WiFi, no electricity, and no entertainment of any kind. Yes, there’ll be food and water, but we won’t care about your opinion of the food, and water will be all you get to drink. Clothes? What’s wrong with the clothes you’re wearing?

“The compound is surrounded by crew-served machine gun emplacements that are continuously manned. Anyone who tries to scale the fence will be shot down, no questions asked. His neighbors can dispose of his body; we certainly won’t want it.

“For extra security, you’ll all be wearing ankle monitors. Very special ankle monitors: if you cut through the band that holds them on, they explode. Guaranteed amputation of your lower leg. If one of you is detected outside the compound, he’ll be tracked down and executed wherever he’s found, again no questions asked. Yes, kids too. Some of you ‘teenagers’ have mighty impressive beards.

“We aren’t interested in hearing any demands from you. In fact, the very first demand any of you makes will get all of you loaded onto a raft and dragged a mile out to sea. Think you could make it back?

“Whoever survives this regime will be returned to his homeland when we think it’s safe. You won’t get a vote. After all, we didn’t get one when you decided to leave, and fair’s fair.

“So make yourselves at home! Those of you whose phones are working should call your buddies back in Dumbfuckistan and tell them about the conditions here. Especially you should tell them about the size of this compound – the fixed size of this compound. No matter how many ‘refugees’ arrive here, they’ll all be confined to the space you occupy now. No enlargement will be considered.

“Have a nice day!”

Do read on from there, you’ll like it. Unfortunately, you can safely bet that most Americans would be mortified and shocked by the “inhumane extremism” of the ideas explored therein, which speaks sad volumes about the rudderless moral chaos of our era.

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.

Heal THIS

By blowing me.

Soon after news broke that special counsel Robert Mueller found no Russia collusion, media types began offering their idea of an olive branch to President Trump. It generally came in the form of advice that he try to “heal” the nation.

One writer encouraged the president to give an Oval Office address in which he is “contrite, humble and authentic in tone” and use it to ask the public “for a new opportunity to be president of all Americans.”

Allow me to go out on a limb with a prediction: Hell will freeze over first. There might be an Oval Office speech, but it won’t be contrite and humble, nor should it be.

Trump is an innocent man who was outrageously framed by political enemies, including some in the Obama White House, the FBI and the Justice Department. Instead of begging forgiveness, he is entitled to feel just as Bill Clinton did after his many brushes with political death, that “whatever doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.”

Democrats and the media tried to kill Trump, and because they failed, he is in a stronger position than ever.

Not that he was a shrinking violet, but as a result we can expect to see an even more dominating, freewheeling Trump. His fiery, profanity-laced appearance at a raucous rally in Michigan illustrates that he views Mueller’s report as complete exoneration and that he is free to be even more Trumpian.

No surprise, he’s not inclined to follow the adage that revenge is a dish best served cold. He wants it now, even if it’s just rhetorical.

Who can blame him?

Try a test. Imagine that Mueller found Trump had indeed conspired with Russia to meddle in the 2016 election and obstructed the investigation. It would be a political bombshell and the move to impeach would be unstoppable.

Rep. Adam Schiff would be able to crow, “I told you so” and Hillary Clinton would claim to be the rightful president and maybe mount another run. Rachel Maddow would rule cable land and The New York Times would celebrate itself. Republicans would offer no resistance.

Facing the ignominy of being convicted by Congress and removed, Trump would be counseled to resign instead of putting the nation and his family through the meat grinder.

If he did resign, then what? A pardon from a President Pence would be unthinkable for such heinous fouls. Trump, out of the White House, would likely face a criminal trial, maybe more than one as prosecutors, federal and state, piled on like jackals to tear at his carcass.

Branded as a traitor, he might spend the rest of his life in prison.

Try an alternate test: imagine a nonpartisan, trustworthy FBI properly investigating Hillary!™ and her illegal unsecured server, with Her Herness and everyone who knew and kept mum about it indicted, up to and including Obama himself. Then imagine a closer look into the Benghazi clusterfuck, Fast and Furious, Uranium One, and the FISA approval of spying on Trump’s campaign, among so many other high crimes and misdemeanors perpetrated by the Obama junta during its agonizing reign of error. Then imagine the shitlib/Enemedia’s snooty dismissal of all that as nothing but a “witch hunt,” “no big deal,” the unconscionable “hounding” of an honest, honorable president strictly for political reasons. Oh, and “racism,” of course.

Another alternative, my own personal preference: imagine telling the Left entire, in no uncertain terms, to go take a flying fuck at a rolling donut at their earliest possible convenience.

The best thing Trump can do is give them space and time to expose the guilty. If there is any healing in America, it will come after clear evidence that he was the victim of a conspiracy that aimed to elect Clinton and then, after he won, to remove him on phony charges.

Actually, if there is to be “any healing in America,” it will come only after a significant percentage of the America-hating, neo-Marxist, treasonous, lying Left has been killed dead and buried, with the remnants too cowed by the sudden, forceful excision of their malignancy to do anything but shut their fucking yaps and tremble in fear.

As for Trump’s political capital, there will be temptations to go on a spending spree, but he and the country would best be served if he devoted himself anew to keeping his first campaign promise: fixing the broken border.

I recommend you embrace the healing power of “and” there, Michael; no reason Trump can’t do both, and none that he shouldn’tb. And since the Left—along with the rest of the Swamp Critter Coup Cabal—have shown not one atom of contrition themselves, “healing” and “contrite, humble and authentic in tone” should no way no how be on the agenda. Let Trump go right on blasting away at them, and reveling in it.

“A new opportunity to be president of all Americans”? Don’t make me laugh, you wretched Enemedia polyps. You’ve been wrong on absolutely everything, right down the line. You long ago established yourselves as in complete partisan alliance with the Democrat-Socialists, the propaganda wing of that criminal conspiracy misrepresenting itself as a legitimate political party. You and your comrades no longer accept the results of elections you don’t win, and you’ll certainly never accept this one. Now you expect to have your unsolicited “friendly advice” gratefully heeded by the people you can no longer be bothered to conceal your raw, unreasoning hatred for?

Yeah, NO. Fuck off and die, every last one of you. And your little dog, too.

Heal THAT shit, assholes.

Update! Francis sees right through ’em.

Mirabile dictu! The Fourth Estate wants to be allowed to slink quietly away from its major role – some would call it a starring role – in the attempted coup against a duly elected president. That president has compiled a record of astonishing achievements in only two years. Perhaps the “gentlemen of the press” anticipated President Trump’s run of successes; perhaps they only feared it; and perhaps they were, as has been the case for some time now, so deeply in bed with the Democrat Party that they were merely “following orders.” It doesn’t matter. The press co-conspired with some of the least trustworthy, most despicable persons ever to sit in federal offices. They partook in an attempt to reverse an election by fraudulent means – and they did so on the representation that Trump won the election by fraudulent means!

The ironies are simply too great to be captured. However, the perpetrators and their cat’s-paws are not. Some belong behind bars; others deserve to be bankrupted in slander and libel suits. Will any of that come about? We shall see. But we may be certain of one thing, at least: President Trump, a battler par excellence whose considerable and well-earned pride in his accomplishments has been deeply scored, will not “drop it,” nor should he.

My my, but he doesn’t seem any more amenable to “healing” than I am. Hopefully, Trump feels the same.

I still find it positively sidesplitting the way the whole sorry gang worked themselves into a case of the shivering fantods over Trump’s refusal to be pinned down on a guarantee to “accept the results of the election” back during the debates. Irony so thick you couldn’t penetrate it with a 500-terawatt laser, so rich and sweet and gooey that if you ate some it would give you a seizure, that’s what it is.

Getting there

Well well well.

US President Donald Trump has ordered to cut all aid programs for the so-called Northern Triangle nations over the migrant inflow into the US. Washington is often criticized for worsening the conditions that force people to flee.

“We are carrying out the President’s direction and ending FY [fiscal year] 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance programs for the Northern Triangle,” a State Department spokesperson told the media. “We will be engaging Congress as part of this process,” she added.

Earlier, Trump himself told journalists that he “ended payments to Guatemala, to Honduras, and to El Salvador. No money goes there anymore.” He also accused the Central American countries of not doing “a thing for us.” The president also turned to Twitter to lambaste the three nations, along with Mexico, over their failure to stop illegal immigration into the US.

He then also threatened to close the US’ southern border or at least a “large section of the border” next week while slamming the Democrats for what he called “the weakest immigration laws anywhere.”

Excellent move, Mr President. As an encore, you should further restrict the flow from the US cash spigot by ending or punitively taxing remittances to Mexico from illegal aliens—another thing you’ve threatened but not yet followed through on. Then use that money to fund the Wall. Then start rigorously enforcing eVerify. As Vox says: it’s a good start.

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.

HUMANITY EXTINCT! PLANET DESTROYED!! FILM AT ELEVEN!!!

Green? No deal.

Senate Votes Down Green New Deal Resolution 0-57

Wait—what? WHAT?!? Not one Democrat-Socialist voted an unequivocal “YEA” on SAVING THE FUCKING PLANET FROM IMMINENT—YES, GODDAMMIT, IMMINENT—DESTRUCTION? NOT ONE??!!??

Why, it’s almost as if these lying frauds don’t even themselves believe in their own self-manufactured, hysterically-hyped scam or something. But no, that can’t possibly be right. Can it?

The Senate voted down on Tuesday S.J. Res. 8, the Green New Deal Resolution, 0-57, with all Republicans, three Democrats, and one Independent voting against it.

Forty-three Democrats voted “present” and three Democrats — Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and Doug Jones (D-AL) — voted against the resolution. Sen. Angus King (I-ME) also voted with Republicans against the measure.

“Present,” is it? Pretty weak tea there, shitlibs, considering it’s the end of all life on Earth we’re talking about here. Fer cripes’ sake, let’s just listen to one of your own High Church holy rollers lay out some grade-A, gold-plated “truth” for us:

Many Democrats — including Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), who sponsored the resolution in the Senate — called the vote a “sham” because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for it without scheduling any hearings.

“[Climate change] is the national security, economic, health care and moral issue of our time,” Markey said at a press conference at the Capitol ahead of the vote. “We must act now.”

Uh huh. Sure, asshole. By voting “present.” Gotta admire the douchebag in a way, though. He keeps right on scammin’ and slammin’ to the very bitter end; even after he knows damned well the flock ain’t listening to the sermon and he’s only making a fool of himself, he keeps flailing away. That’s real dedication, folks. If they had cards for chutzpah like they do baseball, Markey’s would be the Babe Ruth of ’em. It’s as exemplary a demonstration of the thing as anybody’s ever gonna see, a real honest-to-Gaia archetype.

“Republicans and President Trump may choose to be in denial about the consequences of climate change,” Markey said. “But to ordinary people, climate change is not politics. It is life and death.”

Au contraire, bub. To ordinary people—sane ones, intelligent and well-informed ones anyway—it is ALL about politics. Life and death gots nothing to do with it. Your “present” vote on “life or death,” Ed, just cleared the whole thing RIGHT up, thanks.

“It is not a resolution,” Markey said. “It is a revolution.”

Well, that’s pretty much on the beam, at least, if purely unintentionally and not in the way he means it. Meanwhile, Mike Lee addresses this seriously serious issue with all the gravitas it merits:


Those images of a tauntaun-riding Luke Skywalker and Aquaman straddling a seahorse are Lee’s hilarious proposed alternative means for reaching the states of Alaska and Hawaii after they’re cut off by the end of air and ship travel as mandated by the New Green Deal…Or Whatever™. And why the hell not? Makes as much sense as the Green No Deal itself ever did. Edifying as those images are, though, it’s gotta be this one that most deeply touches the heart with that warm, fuzzy glow:


AOCInTears.jpg


Just beautiful, ain’t it? May we see many more like it—we need all we can get of ’em, now more than ever.

Update! I have to append a sincere hats-off to Cocaine Mitch for following through with this. Plenty of us were in doubt as to whether he would, and with reason. But just once in a while even ol’ Yertle comes through, and he sure did here.

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.

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.

Let the games begin!

Stick it to ’em, Lindsay. Unleash pure Hell on the Deep State scumbag.


Go get ’em, boy; get ’em all, and get ’em good. I gotta say it again: John McCain finally shuffling off to join the Choir Invisible, having brought us Lindsay Graham V2.0 thereby, was the greatest service the loathsome Juanny Mav ever did for his country.

Dream on

A mea culpa you ain’t EVER gonna hear.

So I was watching a CNN roundtable discussion earlier and Brian Stelter said, “Well, guys, we really screwed the pooch on this one. There was absolutely no collusion between Trump, or for that matter, any other American, and Russia. But none of our viewers would have ever guessed that that might be the case from our coverage. We were mad as hell that Hillary lost and we hated Trump for beating her. We let our partisanship and hatred of Trump completely undermine our competence as journalists. By knowingingly and enthusiastically participating and egging on this time and money-wasting witch-hunt, we’ve discredited ourselves and our profession. It’s going to be hard to repair the damage to our credibility. We should be servicing the glory holes for quarters in rest stops along the interstate. Compared to what we’ve been doing for the last two years, that would be honorable work.” And then the camera panned over to John Brennan who said, “Well, Brian, I agree with everything you’ve said. But I have no right to get on my high horse about any of this because I’m an utter disgrace to the intelligence community. Hell, I’m lucky I’m not doing 10 years in a federal PMITA prison right now. I can’t believe you guys had me on for interviews week after week as if I were some kinda lofty Olympian sage. The reality is, I’m a partisan hack who hates Trump and wants him gone by any means necessary. How about you, Pete?” And Peter Strzok was on the panel, too. And he said, “John, compared to me, you’re a tower of integrity. I’m a lying sh*tstain. I give the word slimy a bad name. Hell, I have to look up to tie Sid Blumenthal’s shoelaces. I’m not even good enough to be pond scum. I’m yeast. Everybody knows that. Everybody has always known that. It was obvious from the get-go. Everyone sitting at this table was part of an organized, coordinated coup attempt against a sitting president. We all owe him an apology.”

And then I woke up.

Actually, GorillaPundit is wrong about one thing: there assuredly WAS collusion between “…any other American” and Russia. It’s just that it was Hillary, Obama, &c doing it. But GP makes amends handsomely with this:

Which is, of course, just another mea culpa we ain’t ever gonna hear.

More Mueller means more fun!

Instead of appending these as updates to other posts, I figured it was time for a new one.

Well, I am going to miss the full-bore SWAT-team raids at dawn against aging political factota like Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. It was really very courteous of CNN to have been parked outside the homes of those hapless victims so that television audiences all across the country could all be edified by these exhibitions of the coercive arm of state power in action. Mr Mueller could just have had one of his 17 Obama-and-Hillary supporting prosecutors ring up the latest mark and ask him to pop down to headquarters. But that would not have been as dramatic, as expensive, or as cruel.

All good things come to an end, however, and yesterday, after 674 days, the investigation of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, G-Man extraordinaire, finally came to an end when he filed his long-awaited report with the Attorney General, William Barr.

All we really know at this point pertains not the the contents of the report per se but rather to the future action of the Special Counsel. There will be no more indictments.

How that announcement must have stung the NeverTrump fraternity. Here they were, huddled around Bill Kristol’s Twitter feed for the last two-plus years, praying, predicting, posturing that very soon now, any day in fact, Robert Mueller would descend into their midst, the deus ex machina through whose instrumentality they were to be delivered at long last from the nightmare of Donald Trump and his unacceptable record of robust economic growth, hundreds of constitutionally-minded judicial appointments, rising wages, historically low unemployment, a more rational and business-friendly regulatory environment, deeper ties with Israel, a revitalized military, and serious attention to our immigration crisis and the growing threat of an increasing militant China. Yes, it’s been a bad couple of years for the NeverTrumpers.

The question is, however, what comes next?

Hoft makes what I think is the perfect suggestion regarding that:

There are some terrific ways to deliver justice to the coup plotters short of capital punishment. Obama/Clinton/Carter/Page/Rosenstein and many others should enjoy lengthy public trials, but no matter the outcome one thing should be on the coming agenda post 2020… IMPEACH OBAMA!

That’s right. Impeach the illegal spying coup leader. He doesn’t have to be in office in order to be impeached and tried in the Senate. It’s happened before to a Cabinet Secretary.

The Constitution allows only two penalties as a result of impeachment: removal from office, and being banned from holding future federal office.

Technically, it is probably the case that Congress could impeach a President who had left office in order to prevent them from holding future office in the Federal government. This would not only prevent a one-term president from returning to seek another term at a later time but would prevent a former president from running for Congress or serving in the cabinet of a future president or as a federal judge or Supreme Court justice.

…there is some precedent for the idea. In the 1870s, Ulysses S. Grant’s Secretary of War, William Belknap, was impeached on charges of corruption and bribery. He resigned his cabinet post before the House could actually vote to impeach him, but the House went ahead and impeached him anyway. There was a lengthy debate in the Senate over whether it had the power to put Belknap on trial for the charges brought by the House, since Belknap had resigned. In the end the trial went forward…

Republicans should make this their 2020 election platform. Elect us so that we can finally deliver a shred of justice, at long last, and make sure the enemy domestic can never hold any public office for the rest of his miserable life.

Republicans tend to be useless so we’re not holding our breath.

Too true, too true. But a man can dream, can’t he? Elsewhere, Ross compiles a shit-ton of thrice-worthy Twitter blasts from, of all people, our old blog-foe Gleen Grenwald. I won’t embed any of ’em here on account of I’m tired and lazy; just go on and have a look.

Lastly for now: somebody please wake up Hispanic-of-convenience mental giant Robert “Call me Pedro Kennedy” O’Rourke, will ya? He seems to have fallen facedown into a puddle of stale beer and his own vomit again.

You have a president who, in my opinion, beyond a shadow of a doubt, sought to, no matter how ham-handedly, to collude with the Russian government, a foreign power to undermine and influence our elections. The sanctity of the ballot box, the ability of each and every single one of us to make informed decisions about those who seek to represent us and hold positions of public trust.

“Beyond a shadow of a doubt” is it, bright boy? Unremarkable for him, I suppose, except for the inconvenient truth that he apparently burped this up yesterday. Bitter clinger much, Bobby? But when it comes to bitter clingers, Roberto is but a mere piker, an amateur, compared with gormless nitwit and True Conservative™ Hillary-supporter David Frum:

No matter what Attorney General William Barr reveals—or doesn’t—about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, everything Congress needed to know about Donald Trump and Russia was already clear.

It’s not a theory but a matter of historical record that Vladimir Putin’s Russia hacked American emails and used them to help elect Trump to the presidency.

It’s not a theory but a matter of historical record that agents purporting to represent Putin’s Russia approached the Trump campaign to ask whether help would be welcome, to which Donald Trump Jr. replied, “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”

It’s not a theory but a matter of historical record that Donald Trump publicly welcomed this help: “I love WikiLeaks!”

It’s solid political science that this help from Russia via WikiLeaks was crucial, possibly decisive, to Trump’s success in the Electoral College in November 2016.

One more time: Podesta’s emails weren’t “hacked”; he was stupid enough to fall for a phishing scam, whereupon the emails got posted to Wikileaks and things went on from there. Nor is there one iota of evidence that even one fucking vote was altered by any mythical “Russian hacking,” a paltry hundred grand in Facebook ads, or anything else.

No point in bothering further with this tripe; Mueller’s inability to conjure up any “collusion” charges yanks the credibility out from under such wobbly assertions better than any words of mine could ever do. Frum is an idiot, holding onto his worn-out NeverNeverNeverNeverNeverNEVERTRUMP!!! delusions with all the mindless tenacity of a deer tick on an old hound.
