Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Yes, because remember how much she did for Haiti. Wait, what? – In keeping with her life-long belief that there’s a sucker born every minute, the Pantsuit Princess has decided to use the media-generated fake border crisis as a fundraiser. Yes, even though she isn’t technically running for anything right now, the Grasping Grifter, even at her advanced age, just cannot let a good fake crisis go to waste.
So she sent out a fundraising email yesterday to all of her millions of dimwit supporters, urging them to send her money to her new political organization, Onward Together, so these morons can think they are “doing something” by purchasing the Fainting Felon a new Lamborghini or whatever she plans to do with this latest batch of ill-gotten gain. Because, hey, there really is a sucker born every minute, and they all voted for the Coughing Crook in 2016.
Here’s what the fake border crisis is really all about. – It’s not about soulless leftist ghouls who support Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts suddenly caring about children, it’s not about the Trump Administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy, it’s not about wanting to keep families together or any of the nonsense First Lady Laura Bush included in her disgraceful op/ed in the WaPo yesterday (Japanese internment camps? Really, Laura? Who talked you into putting your name to that line of abject BS?). Those are just the well-coordinated talking points on the matter agreed to by the Democrat Party and their propaganda agents in the national news media.
This is about what immigration fights are always about: The Democrats want to turn our nation into just another third world country filled with people dependent on the government, and they believe the best way to do that is to flood the southern border with immigrants from third world countries. This current effort is an attempt to destroy the rules that govern legitimate requests for asylum. Those rules currently apply only to very specific life-threatening situations: Democrats want to expand those rules so that they essentially will allow anyone in for any reason, including – you guessed it – poverty.
Think about it: almost all of the people currently being held in these migrant centers are from central America. They traveled well over 1,000 miles in an arduous journey through Mexico where, if they really needed asylum from a life-threatening situation, they could have sought asylum.
Did any of them do that? No. Why? Because they don’t want asylum in Mexico, they want to live in America, where the government doles out benefits like no one actually has to ulimately pay for them. Before they left their home countries, most of these “refugees” have in fact been trained by American social justice warriors on exactly what fake story to tell when they reach the U.S. in order to gain entry, an effort that began about half a decade ago during – you guessed it – the Obama Administration.
President Trump says that isn’t going to happen, “Not on my watch,” and more than 500 days into his presidency he has given us no reason not to believe he means it. But there are a whole bunch of weak-kneed establishment Republicans up on Capitol Hill who will sell you all out in a heartbeat for any legislation that “solves” this issue. So, you’d best all get on the phone and warn your congressman or woman to think twice. Trust me, some of them really need the warning.
Meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and feckless FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the IG’s report issued last Thursday, which covered the FBI’s fake 2016 investigation into the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.
As I predicted in yesterday’s Campaign Update, Wray was his typical dissembling self, reciting careful talking points written for him by other people to recite, deflecting, refusing to answer on false grounds and just generally looking like the small and ineffective man he obviously is. His smallness and ineffectiveness were only amplified by having to sit next to Horowitz, who, even with one hand obviously tied behind his back by Rod Rosenstein, was as forthcoming as he could be and did his best to provide the Committee with as much information as he possibly could.
The session began with Chairman Chuck Grassley tossing out the first bombshell, detailing the fact that he had also invited former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey to testify, and that Comey’s lawyer had sent back a decline letter in which he stated Comey, if forced to testify, would exercise his 5th amendment right against self-incrimination. This huge news was of course studiously ignored by the fake national news media.
Horowitz stuck with the obviously dictated talking point that he didn’t find “documentary evidence” that the blatant political bias exposed on the part of FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Comey himself influenced the conduct of the fake investigation, but no one was buying it. And, despite that absurd protestation, Horowitz did manage to sprinkle in details of all manner of obvious bias throughout his answers to the pointed questions coming from some of the committee members, including Lindsey Graham, John Kennedy and Ted Cruz, in addition to Grassley himself.
In addition to those details, Horowitz also laid out two big pieces of new information that were not included in his report:
- He informed the committee that the Teenage Drama Queen himself is actually the subject of a current, ongoing investigation into his mishandling of classified documents; and
- He confirmed the existence of a federal grand jury looking into all of this, which is most likely associated with U.S. Attorney John Huber’s ongoing investigation into all of the FBI/DOJ’s 2016 efforts to fix the election.
Many, including me, have long suspected that Huber must have at least one and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, but before yesterday, no one at DOJ had confirmed that likelihood.
Horowitz will testify again today, this time before the House Judiciary Committee chaired by Bob Goodlatte. The membership of that committee includes bulldogs like Jim Jordan, Trey Gowdy, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis, so expect some real fireworks from today’s session.
Interestingly, our useless FBI Director will not be accompanying Horowitz in today’s testimony. Which only further raises the question: Why is this guy in that job? What good is he to anyone? He’s nothing but a career bureaucrat, obviously in way over his head, and he has no intention of reforming anything.
Some have speculated that Wray is just a placeholder who will be replaced by a more effective, reform-minded leader when all the dust has settled from these investigations. Trey Gowdy’s name has often come up as a possible replacement, given his background as a prosecutor before he ran for congress. Gowdy in fact almost appears to be angling for that eventuality, given his always equivocal public statements regarding the FBI and its “stellar” “rank and file.”
I have a better idea: How about making Horowitz Director of the FBI when all of the investigations are done? You want a reformer, how about the guy who knows where all the agency’s bad actors and bodies are buried better than anyone else? You want someone who knows how to manage? This guy has been managing a gigantic staff conducting dozens of simultaneous investigations for a decade now. You want someone who isn’t shy about bucking the system and isn’t squeamish about fighting higher-ups? Horowitz has been doing that his entire career.
It’ll probably never happen, but after yesterday, it sure seems like a heck of a good idea. Just throwing it out there.
Just another day in the drama never ends America.
