Wait! Who’s unhinged and out of control?

Guest piece by Karen Kataline

The deep state and the corrupt media can’t count or report votes fairly but they expect us to believe this poll:

Majority of Americans want Trump removed immediately after U.S. Capitol violence (Reuters/Ipsos poll)

Snap judgements are the stock in-trade of the media and the Left. They are deliberately pushed to manipulate the public into believing that “everyone” agrees with their latest politically motivated idea, in the hopes that “everyone” will.

Their tactics advance and elevate collectivism, mob rule (when it’s their mob) and dismantle our treasured American tenants like Due Process and the notion that citizens are innocent until proven guilty. There’s also the added bonus of smearing their opponents and further dividing the country.

We are brazenly told that we must accept whatever they tell us. Anyone who dares to question them will be ostracized, censored, and destroyed along with all the others who have been used as public examples.

These powerful intimidation tactics are what Fascism really looks like. They work best on weak-minded individuals.

It should surprise no one that the same Leftists and their various factions have been working to weaken the “collective” American mind for decades so that it will surrender more easily to this sort of oppression and persecution. How easy was it to coerce most people in a country of 330+ million people to put rags on their faces with no end in sight for ever taking them off?

Now, we are supposed to believe that it’s sane for the great victors in the election who are poised to control all three branches of our federal government, to consider it their highest priority to oust the President in his last week and a half.  Don’t remind them that he has been there for four years.

The same players spied, lied and tried to oust him through his entire Presidency with baseless charges of which they themselves are being revealed to be guilty. Talk about not accepting the results of an election!

With no investigation whatsoever, they demand that we believe their wild assumptions that Trump incited violence on January 6.

Those who were interested watched his entire speech.  It’s available on YouTube, at least it used to be. He did no such thing but it doesn’t matter.  Those who have already made up their minds aren’t interested in deciding for themselves.

Many more are cheering America’s new and unprecedented censorship of political “dissidents.” They are utterly clueless that they are helping to dissolve their own rights to free expression.

Why is the Deep State so desperate to remove Donald Trump in what they insist is the last week and a half of his Presidency? Do they care that there is video evidence of “protestors” being led into the building by what appear to be Capitol Police who guided them where to go?  They’re interested about as much as they are in investigating voter fraud.

Does it matter that at least some if not most of those protestors are already alleged to have been Antifa “agents provocateurs” about whom they were briefed that same morning?  True or not, they have no interest in finding out. That should tell any reasonable person plenty.

If Antifa’s primary mission was to perform a false flag operation to hand the media and the left the needed faux moral outrage to smear Trump and his millions of supporters, they believe they have succeeded. We’ll see.

Who appoints themselves judge, jury and executioner of 70+ million people for the actions of a few no matter who they turn out to be?  Bigots do that, and these appear to be some pretty scared bigots.

What about the riots we witnessed throughout the summer with blatant encouragement from Leftist politicians? We have the video, unless YouTube and others scrap that too.

Their grand silence spoke volumes when cities burned, historic monuments were destroyed and innocent people were killed. Their crocodile tears now are more indicative of desperation than moral outrage.

Who has consistently exhibited unhinged and out of control behavior?  It’s obvious that it’s the same finger-pointers who have been obsessed with destroying Donald Trump from the beginning. Maxine Waters wasn’t joking when she called for Trump’s impeachment before he was inaugurated.

Is there a 25th Amendment for ousting the Deep State?  I believe there are those who are still working on it.

Monday News Roundup: Clyburn Signals Impeachment Polling Badly; More Senate RINOs Pile On

This whole impeachment thing is obviously not polling well for them. – As is always the case, Democrats make every decision based on polls and focus groups. This is nothing new, it’s how they have functioned as a party since the advent of the Clinton national plague in 1992.

So, why would anyone think this latest nonsense about impeaching a President who has 9 days remaining in office would be any different? Since last Thursday, all the Democrat chatter has been about kicking the process in the House off when the members convene today. That still would not allow enough time for a Senate trial and conviction prior to January 20 – which, by the way, is not going to happen in any event – but it would be plenty of time for the Adam Schiffs and Gerrold Nadlers and James Clyburns of the world to demagogue the matter for the TV cameras and then get the articles of impeachment over to the Senate before inauguration day.

But a funny thing happened Sunday afternoon. Clyburn, the third-ranking member of San Fran Nans leadership junta in the House, floated the idea during an appearance on Fake Jake Tapper’s CNN show of holding up sending over whatever articles of impeachment he and his band of thugs come up with until after China Joe Potato Head Biden’s 100th day in office. That of course is assuming China Joe remains in office for 100 days, which is not cinch if you know what I mean.

From a story at The Hill:

“We will take the vote that we should take in the House. And [Pelosi] will make the determination as to when is the best time to get that vote and get the managers appointed and move that legislation over to the Senate,” Clyburn added.

“Let’s give President-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running,” Clyburn added. “And maybe we will send the articles some time after that.”

Clyburn went on to say he expected the House to have its final articles of impeachment sometime Monday and take floor action on them by Tuesday or Wednesday. While Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) has written a single article for incitement to insurrection in relation to last week’s deadly Capitol riots, Clyburn said House leaders are also exploring articles related to the president pressuring Georgia officials to change election results.

[End]

“…maybe we will send the articles some time after that.” And if the polling still isn’t going well for them, they’ll never send the articles over to the House. Because that’s how the Democrats operate.

Brain Dead Op/Ed of the Week, by Juan Williams:

Again, last Wednesday was a riot, not a “coup attempt.” If it had been a coup attempt, all those National Guard troops who the President called in would have been charged with arresting members of congress, not with dispersing the rioters and securing the scene.

This is not hard, yet most Americans will sadly fall for the Big Lie.

Nothing to see here, move along… – Meanwhile, as Juan and the rest of the corrupt news media were pushing the Big Lie about last Wednesday, here is a sample of what was happening around the rest of the country.

New York City:

San Diego:

Portland:

“Mostly peaceful.” *sigh*

Friendly Recent History Reminder of the Day. – Just a reminder that, during last Summer’s BLM/Antifa protests in Washington, DC, there was a definite air of insurrection in the air. A national landmark Church was burned. Stores were torched and looted. More than 100 Secret Service, National Guard and police officers were injured. The President was moved by the Secret Service to a bunker in the basement of the White House in order to keep him safe.

On that same night, Kamala Harris and other Democrat members of congress came out to join the BLM/Antifa riot. Joe Biden and the media mocked the President for moving into the bunker. The next day, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser dedicated a park to the rioters and had the BLM motto painted on 17th street. There were few arrests, and no one in the media or in congress talked about having Harris or any other member of congress who supported the rioters removed from office for their obvious insurrection against the federal government.

This concludes your Friendly Recent History Reminder of the Day.

And for those of you still filling my in-box with claims that last Wednesday wasn’t a riot at all… – Well, ‘splain this one to me:

If that doesn’t look like a riot to you, then go somewhere else. Thanks.

Useless Parliamentary Suggestion of the Week comes from Ohio’s Rob Portman:

Dear Sen. Portman: Any “blue ribbon panel” involving Democrats will simply work to lie about all the massive fraud that took place in November’s election and make the fraud processes permanent going forward. But then, you already knew that, didn’t you?

Utterly spineless.

Finally, over in the Senate, the RINOs are forming a stampede. – Since Alaska RINO Lisa Murkowski kicked off the “Trump should resign” mantra late last week, her fellow Trump haters in the Senate have begun to form up their own pro-impeachment/25th amendment/forced resignation caucus. It hasn’t yet reached the critical mass that would be needed to get to a 2/3rds vote in the senate for conviction and removal, but that won’t keep them from trying.

From a story at The Hill:

GOP lawmakers are wrestling with whether to stick with President Trump between now and Jan. 20 as members of his Cabinet consider resigning or invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska became the first Republican senator to call on Trump to resign, declaring on Friday afternoon that “he has caused enough damage.”

“I want him to resign. I want him out,” she told the Anchorage Daily News.

A day later, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), who is retiring at the end of 2022, said Trump’s actions rise to the level of impeachment.

“I do think the president committed impeachable offenses,” Toomey told Fox News during an interview.

Murkowski and Toomey’s comments put pressure on Republican centrists, such as Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah) and Susan Collins (Maine), who as of Saturday night had not addressed whether Trump should step down or be removed from office.

Romney, the only Republican senator to vote to convict Trump on an article of impeachment in February, accused Trump of inciting a mob of supporters to storm the Capitol while Congress was counting the vote of the Electoral College on Wednesday.

Rep. Garrett Graves (R-La.) on Friday called for Trump to step back from the duties of his office, though he said he did not support impeaching the president or invoking the 25th Amendment.

“He effectively needs to resign. And what I mean by that is, effectively, he will not be out there talking, speaking, wielding the full authority and power of the White House, maybe even technically finding a way to hand over the keys to [Vice President] Pence,” he said.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), a prominent conservative and potential presidential candidate in 2024, said Thursday he would consider voting to convict Trump on an article of impeachment — something he voted against less than a year ago when House Democrats impeached Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstructing justice.

“If they come together and have a process, I will definitely consider whatever articles they might move, because as I told you I believe the president has disregarded his oath of office,” Sasse said in an interview on “CBS This Morning.”

[End]

Murkowski. Romney. Collins. Sasse. Graves. Toomey. Keep a list of these people, folks. Never forget their actions this week. They detest you every bit as much as any Democrat does.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Another October, Another FBI Scam to Influence an Election

Another October, another bit of “right-wing terrorist” horse manure from the FBI. – It’s amazing how this always seems to happen in the runup to a major election, isn’t it?

The FBI announced yesterday that it had made arrests of a dozen “right-wing terrorists” who were supposedly plotting to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and “overthrow” the government of Michigan. The announcement and arrests of these people, who are actually anarchists – left wing terrorists, not right wing – of course come just in time for the media to use them as a tool to try to influence the upcoming election in favor of the Democrats, which of course is always the agency’s goal.

Here’s a video of one of the ringleaders, calling President Trump a “tyrant” and “an enemy”, but you are supposed to believe he and his fellow anarchists are actually Trump supporters:

Who are you gonna believe – the FBI or your lyin’ ears and eyes?

Thus, the sorry trail of FBI efforts to act as a tool of the Deep State to influence every major election cycle since 2016 remains intact, from the FBI-led Spygate effort in 2016 to the transparently mispresented case against registered Democrat Cesar Cayoc and agency coordination with the Mueller-led coup effort in 2018, and now to this. As a political tool, the FBI is first rate. As a law enforcement agency, it is as worthless as a coronavirus mask or an airport x-ray machine.

The absolute destruction of this once-great American institution will forever be the legacy of Robert Mueller, James Comey and Christopher Wray.

Speaking of Creepy Joe McWifeMolester… – Here is what the corrupt, worthless press corps allowed him to get away with on Thursday:

“You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over.”

Who gets away with this? We are talking about one branch of the federal government fundamentally restructuring another branch, a clear violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers, yet our worthless press corps can’t be bothered to hold his or Kamala Harris’s feet to the fire and force an answer to this crucial question.

Chris Wallace didn’t really even make an effort during the first debate, and Susan Page put up only slightly more fight with Harris in the vice presidential debate. The pack of useless media sheep who follow his campaign around are too bullied by Biden’s handlers to bother to even ask the question, much less follow-up with a demand that he answer.

A few fake journalists like Jon Karl tut-tutted on their twitter accounts about Biden’s latest dodge, but that’s just a lame effort to burnish their “objectivity” credentials, and has no real meaning.

If Biden and Harris get to Election Day without having provided a direct answer to this crucial question for or society, it will possibly represent the single largest failure of journalism in American history.

But then, it’s a dead profession, so why would we expect anything different?

Speaking of dead professions, there’s the U.S. Congress. – I’m old enough to remember when congress actually wrote bills, passed laws, authorized actual appropriations and stuff like that. Those were the days, huh? Yeah…good times, good times.

Anyway, after two decades of communist Democrat “leaders” like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid, it has become difficult to understand exactly what the real function of the House and Senate even are anymore. They’ve only passed an actual budget one time in the past 15 years or so; neither house really attempts to lead on any issue of public import; and the only new “laws” we find ourselves subjected to these days come to us in the form of unconstitutional edicts from governors and extra-constitutional decisions by the courts.

Other than passing a couple of massive, China virus-related stimulus bills mid-year, pretty much the only thing the House of Representatives has done during 2020 is to pass meaningless, posturing resolutions like the one condemning “Q” last week, or maybe it was early this week, I forget which.

The other favorite communist Democrat tactic is to introduce bills for purely political effect that they know will not go anywhere. Today, San Fran Nan will stage such an event for her willing press accomplices in which she and Cong. Kamie Rasikin will introduce a bill to remove President Trump under the terms of the 25th Amendment:

Image

Yeah, that’s not how the 25th Amendment works, folks, but the corrupt news media will play along like it’s something serious nonetheless, because that is the role it plays for the communist Democrat Party.

So tiresome.

Finally, talk about your unwanted outreach, there is this little gem from Newsweek, discussing a recent statement from Vladimir Putin about his correct belief that Russian communists and the Democrat Party have a lot of “shared beliefs.”

From the Newsweek story:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has attempted to mark a positive resemblance between Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Soviet communists in a wide-ranging interview with the Rossiya TV channel, released Wednesday as the 2020 vice presidential candidates prepared to debate.

The president said the Kremlin would be open to working with whoever sits in the Oval Office in 2021, despite U.S. intelligence reports indicating that Russia is trying to undermine Biden in the same way it did Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

But Putin linked Biden to communist ideology during the interview. While Putin—a former party member, KGB colonel and intelligence operative—made the comparison in positive terms, his comment lines up with GOP talking points about the Biden-Kamala Harris ticket. Trump and his allies have tried to frame their opponents proposing a far-left, extremist platform dictated by the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

That is all.

Did Nikki Haley Just Reveal the Leaders of the 25th Amendment Push?

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Yeah, neither am I. – For what seems like the 16,000th time during President Donald Trump’s term in office, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at yet another record high on Monday, as the Trump economy just keeps roaring along. Democrats and fake journalists everywhere were doubling up on their depression meds as the markets closed.

When Nikki Haley speaks, people listen. – When people start surveying the GOP landscape post-Trump, whether that comes in January after being removed from the the presidency by the Senate (which is not likely to happen), in January 2021 after a loss in the 2020 election (also not in the cards) or in January 2025 following the completion of his second term in office (bingo!), the survey inevitably lands to the name of Nikki Haley as one of his most likely successors.

Other names also arise, of course: Names like Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo and Ted Cruz, and the less obvious names like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan and even Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw. Lindsey Graham, with his thrice-weekly appearances on one Fox News evening program or another, is obviously angling for another run at the gig, as are Rand Paul and even Kanye West. But inevitably, the name of Nikki Haley always comes up.

She is, after all, a former successful governor of South Carolina, and a person who, after not really being on board with the Trump Train during the 2016 campaign, created a very high profile for herself as Trump’s very loyal, very aggressive and very outspoken UN Ambassador. Although her record as Governor was decidedly mixed from a conservative perspective, perhaps more than any of Trump’s cabinet-level officials, Haley has stood out as the most aggressive advocate for his international policies.

Thus it is that anything she has to say about the goings-on inside White House during her two-year tenure is given a lot of weight by most Trump supporters. In a Sunday interview with Kelly O’Donnell of CBS, Haley basically accused both then-Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson of rank insubordination, even though she said they claimed that was not their intent.

Here’s the key outtake:

Haley recounts a closed-door encounter with then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country … Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president’s decisions was because, if he didn’t, people would die. This was how high the stakes were, he and Kelly told me. We are doing the best we can do to save the country, they said. We need you to work with us and help us do it. This went on for over an hour.”

O’Donnell asked, “You memorialized that conversation? It definitely happened?”

“It absolutely happened,” said Haley. “And instead of saying that to me, they should’ve been saying that to the president, not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan. It should’ve been, ‘Go tell the president what your differences are, and quit if you don’t like what he’s doing.’ But to undermine a president is really a very dangerous thing. And it goes against the Constitution, and it goes against what the American people want. And it was offensive.”

[We asked them to respond. John Kelly tells “Sunday Morning”: “If by resistance and stalling she means putting a staff process in place … to ensure the (president) knew all the pros and cons of what policy decision he might be contemplating so he could make an informed decision, then guilty as charged.”]

Undermining a president from the inside is indeed a very dangerous thing, as Haley notes, and her accusation against Kelly and Tillerson rings true given everything else we know about the two men and their behavior while serving in those positions. Tillerson repeatedly made his personal disdain for the President and his lack of support for Trump policies related to North Korea, China and other parts of the world very clear while serving as SOS, which is the main reason why his tenure in the office was so short. Kelly’s first move after moving into his Chief of Staff role was not to go after the myriad leakers inside the White House, but rather to cut the President off from his most loyal supporters and start to systematically force them out of their jobs.

Rumors have run rampant for more than two years now that both men were willing participants in the mid-2017 plot to dummy up a rationale for removing Trump from office under the 25th Amendment, a plot we know beyond any reasonable doubt that Rod Rosenstein was a part of. If you believe in the whole “where there’s smoke there’s fire” paradigm, it seems extremely likely that those persistent rumors must have some basis in reality.

If Haley’s contention about the approach by Tillerson and Kelly is accurate – and there is little reason to believe that it is not – then it would be consistent with a move that would be made as a part of a larger 25th amendment effort targeting the President. Haley’s contention here, and cryptic use of the term “sidebar plan,” is troubling in the extreme, and Tillerson’s refusal to even respond to it does not reflect well on him. Kelly’s response, which does not in any way address the accusation, may be even worse.

As mentioned earlier, Haley’s interview – promoting her new book – is also a not-so-subtle attempt to keep herself in the public eye, ready to quickly move in the unlikely event of Trump’s actual removal by the Senate. The following passage reveals that part of her personal agenda:

Haley insists she has no immediate plans to run for any office, including the presidency, and as she departed the Trump administration last year she said, “I can promise you what I’ll be doing is campaigning for this one.”

She told O’Donnell, “A year is a long time in politics. It really is a lifetime in politics. And so, I think what’s best for me is take it a year at a time and see what happens.”

With her new book, lucrative speaking engagements, and a seat on the corporate board of Boeing, Nikki Haley acknowledges there are still chapters to be written:  “I’m too young to stop fighting. I’ll always be out there. I’ll always use the power of my voice for what I believe is good.”

So, whether the jumping off point becomes early 2020, early 2021 or the 2024 election campaign, you can be sure that Nikki Haley will be vying to become the face of the GOP in the wake of the Trump presidency. Lining herself up as this President’s most loyal and vocal supporter helps her cause immensely.

That is all.
