A short one from Steyn that, its brevity notwithstanding, is well worth posting:
On Wednesday I returned to the Golden EIB Microphone for three hours of substitute-host-level Excellence in Broadcasting on America’s Number One radio show.
The broadcast began with Trump walking out of a meeting with Schumer and Pelosi after three minutes, and saying he wouldn’t be working with Democrats until they stopped investigating him. Good luck with that. I pointed out that the logic of their situation demands investigation without end: first, to distract from the fact that their agenda is nuts – open borders, transgender supremacism, fourth-trimester abortion – and, second, because it is necessary to investigate Trump for “obstructing” their previous investigation of him in order to prevent him investigating the rottenness of the original investigation of him: the counter-intelligence surveillance operation launched by Obama’s guys against the Trump campaign.
There IS no working with Democrat-Socialists now—period—and it’s worse than a waste of time to bother about it. There is only victory, or defeat; they’ve left nothing else to us, no matter how hard we might wish otherwise. Anybody willing to “work with” or “compromise” with them has a question to answer: which of the Bill of Rights, which of your essential God-granted rights and freedoms, are you willing to give up? What degree of liberal-fascist tyranny and control do you consider acceptable?
On the bright side, Steyn is right: they’ve well and truly painted themselves into a tight corner, and have no option but to carry on. Their metastasizing lunacy is both the agent of and the consequence for their self-destructive lurch into extremism. At this point they can only play the string out, hoping for a miracle to come along and save their stupid asses. One way or another, their ultimate ruin is inevitable. That’s the sic semper for all tyrannus.
Blind staggers update! Senile, or just dead drunk? Pursuant to the Trump walkout mentioned above, Stretch Pelosi weaves and wobbles her way through a completely incomprehensible monologue about…well, God only knows what it was about. But it’s quite disturbing. And hilarious. Fuckerberg doesn’t allow video embeds outside the Fakebook cage, so you’ll just have to hit the link to see it.

LOL get fucked update! More deets:
President Trump on Wednesday cut off infrastructure talks with congressional Democratic leaders after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said he was engaged in a “cover up,” then lit into Democrats and declared he would not work with them until their investigations are over.
After their meeting abruptly ended, Trump appeared in the White House Rose Garden and demanded that Democrats “get these phony investigations over with” before talks resume.
“I’ve said from the beginning that you probably can’t go down two tracks,” Trump said. “You can go down the investigation track or you can go down the investment track … We’re going to go down one track at a time.”
The sudden, public blowup came as House Democratic leaders are facing increased pressure to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, which has further raised partisan tensions in Washington.
Pelosi traveled to the White House for the long-planned infrastructure meeting shortly after she met with members of her caucus to discuss possible impeachment, during which she said her colleagues agreed Trump is “engaged in a cover-up.”
“I don’t do cover-ups,” Trump responded during his remarks.
Just another example of the habitual Democrat-Socialist MO of accusing others of the very things they’re guilty of. Good on ya for stiff-arming the obnoxious bastards, Mr President. Tawdry, slanderous innuendo and open discourtesy and disrespect, all disgracefully flaunted by conniving, unscrupulous pustules right before what’s supposed to be a serious conference, aren’t things anybody is required to put up with, much less a sitting President who was just exonerated by their own damned handpicked Grand Inquisitor.
But does it get even better, you ask? Hold onto your hats, friends.
DURBIN continues about the WH mtg on infrastructure: “(Trump) objected to the continued investigation of obstruction of justice, he said he cooperated and gave his side of the story, as we’ve heard before.”
“I don’t know where this leaves us as a nation,” Durbin said.

The supreme irony being, of course, that Despicable Dick portrays himself as “deeply concerned” about our great national unraveling—even as he himself is one of the ill-intentioned tapeworms working tirelessly to bring it about. That one pegs the chutzpah needle as deep into the red as it will go, shattering all previous records and setting a new standard for shameless hypocrisy.
And they call US deplorable.
