Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Hey, remember what happened to the House Republicans after they tried to impeach Bill Clinton? No? Cool, let’s do the same thing with Donald Trump! – That’s basically where House Democrats are right now. The whole purpose of Robert Mueller’s Witch Hunt from the beginning was to first enable the Democrats to take control of the House in the 2018 election and then to give them a road map for impeaching Donald Trump.
But that was all supposed to be done in the context of Mueller finding ample justification to actually charge the President with outright collusion with the Russians during the 2016 campaign, and/or for obstruction of justice, neither of which outcome Mueller was able to deliver. But that doesn’t matter to Democrat politicians – they spend every day making up and saying stuff that just isn’t true, after all. It’s how they make their livings.
So, Mueller didn’t really give us that roadmap? No problem – we’ll just make like he did. Thus, as soon as Attorney General William Barr released Mueller’s report to the public last Thursday, the calls from various Democrat members like Mad Maxine Waters and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the House to immediately begin impeachment hearings began going out. Statements cautioning against moving in that direction by House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer and Bug-eyed Adam Schiff fell on deaf ears.
The cacophony of crazy voices only continued to grow louder over the Easter weekend, to the point where San Fran Nan felt the need on Monday to first send a letter to members stating her position on the matter, and then convene an evening conference call that lasted for an hour and a half. The end result of her efforts was to essentially give lunatic committee chairs like Jabba The Nadler and Elija Cummings carte blanche to continue their own Witch Hunts to see if they can drum up some smoking gun that Mueller couldn’t find during his 22 months of searching.
San Fran Nan’s letter is an object lesson the pure demented status of today’s Democrats. While she does not support moving ahead with immediate impeachment hearings, she obviously felt the need to placate her lunatic caucus by including red meat like:
“While we do not have the full report and the underlying exhibits, including the grand jury testimony, two of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions stand out: one, the “sweeping and systematic” Russian interference in our elections; and two, the President’s repeated efforts to thwart cooperation with the independent prosecutors in their pursuit of justice.”
This is pure, unadulterated idiocy. First, if there was indeed “sweeping and systematic” Russian interference in our elections, that all happened while Barack Hussein Obama was serving as President, and he did literally nothing about it.
Not only did Obama not do anything about it, he made a famous speech in which he even ridiculed the entire notion that it was even possible to “rig” a U.S. election. On October 18, 2016, Barack Hussein Obama his own self said this:
“But the larger point I want to emphasize here is that there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even — you could even rig America’s elections, in part, because they are so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved.
There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time.”
Donald Trump was a candidate who had never held any elected office in his life in 2016, when all of this “interference” in our elections by Russian agents supposedly took place. Robert Mueller and his 19 Clinton/Obama loyalists CLEARED Mr. Trump of doing anything to support or collude with those Russian activities. So, of the Democrats want to plow this particular field yet again, I’d imagine the President is sitting in the Oval Office smiling and thinking “Oh, please, by my guest.”
Pelosi’s second false point about “the President’s repeated efforts to thwart cooperation with the independent prosecutors in their pursuit of justice” is simply another Democrat load of fresh, smelly horse manure. Yes, the section of the Mueller report on Obstruction contains all sorts of gossip and unprovable innuendo contending that the President “thought about”, “considered”, and “lashed out” about all sorts of things, but the simple fact of the matter is that he did not do one damn thing to actually interfere with Mueller’s Witch Hunt. Nothing, zero, zip, nada, bupkiss.
Even more compelling in the President’s defense, he in fact granted Mueller unprecedented access to his staff and executive branch documents, encouraged full cooperation from his people and never one time exercised his full constitutional rights to executive privilege.
But again, the actual truth does not matter a whit to Democrats these days. Their whole thought process centers around what they can make up, and more importantly, what can they and their toadies in the fake news media make the American people believe?
Yes, it’s despicable. Yes, it’s demented. Yes, it is the very essence of depravity.
But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, so does any of it really surprise you? I’m guessing the answer to that question is a resounding ‘NO’.
That is all.
