Note to Republicans: Stop Hyping This Memo and Release the Damn Thing Already

  • Tired of all this Winning yet? – The NFL reports that its ad revenues for the 2017 season were down by $30 million due to flagging TV ratings.  And yes, I used the word “flagging” intentionally.  Couldn’t happen to a dumber bunch of people.
  • Hey, aren’t all the pussy hatters supposed to be protesting stuff like this? – Fresh on the heels of a Saturday report that more than 90% of Grammy Award nominees since 2012 have been men, last night’s Grammy ceremony saw just one trophy or whatever they give away awarded to a female, with the very male Bruno Mars alone walking away with 9 of them.  But then, I guess since we now are supposed to pretend that we have something like 250 different “genders”, we’re also supposed to pretend that the Grammys are not America’s single most misogynistic performance awards.
  • They obviously forgot to include California in this survey. – Some website called Thrillist announced on Sunday that Florida is the worst state in the country “in every way.”  Thrillist claims to have produced its ranking – which has Michigan in the numero uno position – based on “everything.”  It’s really hard to believe that the state that recently produced a wrestling match between an alligator and an anaconda could be ranked so lowly, isn’t it?
  • The House Intelligence Committee meets today, and Republicans, who hold a 13-9 majority on that panel, could vote to release their highly-touted 4-page memo detailing the abuse of the FISA process by the Obama Administration.  Whether that vote takes place today, or when the Committee is next scheduled to meet later this week, it seems likely that the much-ballyhooed memo will indeed see the light of day before the week is out.  In no event will it be released any earlier than Wednesday afternoon, because Republicans won’t want to step on the President’s State of the Union Address, which comes Tuesday night.
  • Whenever this memo does make its way into the public domain, one thing is for sure:  It had better be good.  Really, really good.  After the last ten days of dozens of GOP members of congress going on and on about how “explosive” this document is, the damn thing had better explode, and it had better have every tiny fact nailed down, because if the thing contains even the tiniest factual error, that is the only thing about it that will be reported by the fake news media, which will do everything in its power to cover for the only divine being it has ever worshiped, Barack Hussein Obama.
  • The fake news media has already coordinated with the Democrat Party on three different tactics to oppose the memo.  First, they said that “Russian bots”, i.e., fake Twitter accounts managed by Russian interests, were behind the promotion of the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag on that social media platform.  But then the leftists who run Twitter, apparently believing that bit of nonsense, analyzed the whole thing and found that more than 90% of those deploying that hashtag were indeed real, actual people.  Ooops.
  • Next, the media/Democrats trotted out the bizarre argument, led by bug-eyed Californa Rep. Adam Schiff, that, well, you just can’t release that memo because, you know, like, most Americans are just too dumb to understand what’s in it.  Shockingly, that one didn’t fly even with CNN’s hopelessly brainwashed viewership, so they had to move on, as it were.
  • For the last 3-4 days, the fake reporters, fake talking heads and Democrat politicians have resorted to just rolling out an array of fake news stories and stunts designed to just distract attention away from the whole controversy, most notably the NYTimes fake story about how President Trump thought about firing Robert Mueller 7 months ago, but then didn’t do it.  Everyone in the fake news media and the Democrat Party has spent the last half week attempting to convince you all that considering firing a guy with massive conflicts of interest and an obvious, blatant political agenda is somehow an impeachable offense.
  • The fact of the matter is – as I argued at the time – President Trump should have ordered Rod Rosenstein to fire Robert Mueller last June, when his massive conflicts of interests and ingrained biases became obvious.  If Mueller had a shred of personal integrity, he would have never accepted the assignment in the first place, given that he is best buddies with James Comey, who is theoretically a key witness in any attempt to mount an obstruction of justice campaign against the President.
  • Not only would doing that have not been any sort of crime, the President has an absolute constitutional authority to act in that way.  To claim otherwise is to claim that Mueller, and by extension, Rosenstein, are completely unaccountable to anyone.  Sorry liberals, life doesn’t work that way.
  • In any event, this whole uproar about this memo has dragged on for so long now that it is verging on becoming tiresome.  It was a huge tactical error by the Republicans who viewed this memo to then immediately rush to the nearest television camera and declare it to be “explosive.”  Had it been released a week ago, that probably would have been the case.  Coming as it will after two weeks of focused hype, there is now a big risk it will turn out to be a dud in the public’s mind.
  • As San Fran Nan famously said about the Obamacare bill in 2010, “We have to pass the bill so we can see what’s in it.”  Just release the damn memo already, so we all can see what’s in it.
Just another day in fake news media America.
That is all.

    We’ll see what happens with this memo…it could have damning evidence, but the real question is this – will anyone be held accountable for their actions? The DOJ investigating and prosecuting their own? Let’s see….

    Its not enough anymore for these politicians and swamp creatures to just lose an election and get to lay low plotting their next attack on our democracy. Sure…Trump won, and Hillary lost, but she clearly broke the law repeatedly, and she is still unscathed, as is everyone in her circle. Where is the outrage? Charges? At least give it to a grand jury.

    Now, you have to read the new blockbuster Charm of Favor: A true story of the rise of the Clinton Crime Syndicate. It tells who, what, where, and most of all WHY they are the richest and most powerful criminal organization in history.

    What I’ve noticed about Trump is that he’s content to allow events to unfold. Yes, he could have fired Mueller, but it’s much better to give him the miles of rope he needs to hang himself. There’s a lot of downside to Trump firing Mueller unless absolutely necessary, him walking away in utter disgrace is all Trump upside. (Ditto with NAFTA negotiations.)

    Trump also thinks very long term. I remember right after the election the outcry when he tamped down on the campaign’s “Lock Her Up” rhetoric. Already breaking his promises! It was obvious to me anyway, that he was trying to get an indolent Obama to stay that way and not offer her a pardon walking out the door. It worked.

    Lots of frustration the first year with the DOJ not “doing anything”. Just wait… and now I think I see the lions in the tall grass just waiting for the right moment to pounce. I think the “Lock Her Up” will be a campaign promise kept but patience is in order.

    There had better be enough to lock up half of DC with amount of hype over this memo. There’s so much hype, I’m afraid it’s going to end up being the rest of the love texts between the world’s two most boring illicit lovers.
