Friday News Roundup: Disney Fires Gina Carano for Telling the Truth as More Cuomo Complicity Comes to Light

Well, of course they did. This is what mass killers do. – Andrew Cuomo and his administration have now admitted to systematically under-reporting the number of nursing home deaths in New York caused by Cuomo’s policy of sending elderly patients infected with COVID-19 back to their nursing homes while still contagious. Cuomo’s top aide admitted on Thursday to the under-reporting, saying she did it due to fear of a potential federal investigation.

Naturally, the aide, a dissembling leftist hack named Melissa DeRosa, blame her actions on mean tweets by…wait for it…President Donald Trump. I swear I do not make this stuff up:

From a story at the New York Post:

Governor Cuomo’s top aide privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for withholding the state’s nursing-home death toll from COVID-19 — telling them “we froze” out of fear the true numbers would “be used against us” by federal prosecutors, The Post has learned.

The stunning admission of a cover-up was made by Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa during a video conference call with state Democratic leaders in which she said the Cuomo administration had rebuffed a legislative request for the tally in August because “right around the same time, [then-President Donald Trump] turns this into a giant political football,” according to an audio recording of the two-hour-plus meeting.

“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” [Hint: That’s exactly what they did] DeRosa said. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”

In addition to attacking Cuomo’s fellow Democratic governors, DeRosa said, Trump “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us.”

“And basically, we froze,” she told the lawmakers on the call.

“Because then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation.”

DeRosa added: “That played a very large role into this.”

[End]

It is truly depressing and frankly frightening that so many ghouls just like Cuomo and DeRosa have risen to power in America today. It’s also depressing to know that Cuomo would easily be re-elected if he were to run again, even after causing the needless deaths of thousands of New Yorkers, or that DeRosa would easily win the governor’s office in the state should she become the Democrat nominee.

Liberalism/leftism is a mental disease that robs people of the ability to connect their own voting actions to the societal pathologies that plague their lives. Andrew Cuomo’s political career is living proof of that fact.

CNN is complicit in Cuomo’s mass-killings, too. – While Cuomo was ordering thousands of elderly New Yorkers to their deaths in the state’s nursing homes and DeRosa was helping him hide the real numbers, this is how the corrupt media hacks at CNN were covering the story:

Despicable. Let us never forget that the American media writ large literally lionized Cuomo as a role model for other governors to follow even as he was killing thousands of elderly New Yorkers. The media is complicit. Period.

You’re calling us Nazis??? Well, we’ll see about that! – Mandalorian star Gina Carano put up a tweet recently comparing the social and political climate in the United States to that of pre-WWII Nazi Germany.

As if to absolutely prove her point is 100% correct, Disney fired her for exercising her right to free speech and telling the truth.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. Don’t even try.

Excerpt from the story at DailyWire:

Disney faced widespread backlash late on Wednesday after a production company that they own announced that it had parted ways with conservative actress Gina Carano after the actress posted some things to social media that some claimed were offensive.

One post, which was a screenshot of someone else’s post that she uploaded to her own account, compared the current divisive political climate in the U.S. to events that took place in Nazi Germany, which critics claimed was her equating Republicans with Jews in Nazi Germany.

“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” Lucasfilm, a production company owned by Disney, said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Disney’s firing of Carano sparked instant widespread backlash online with “#CancelDisneyPlus” rocketing to the very top of Twitter’s trending news list. Carano was one of the stars on Disney+’s “The Mandalorian.”

In response to Carano’s firing, critics noted how Disney rehired a director that had been fired over disturbing sexually explicit tweets, Disney’s business dealings in communist China, and other controversies that the company has faced in recent years.

“Gina Carano’s post made the point that mass violence starts with hatred for your neighbor,” Daily Caller editor Katrina Haydon wrote. “This is not only uncontroversially true but also one perspective of the commandment to love your neighbor. That idea is not a call to empty niceness. It’s how you prevent suffering.”

“The point that Gina Carano’s post made isn’t even a ‘wild take,’ and she certainly isn’t the first person to get cancelled for viewpoints that differ from the woke mob,” Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott added. “What a dangerous, sad era to live in — where expressing a particular view could cost you your livelihood.”

[End]

And so, the woke Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter gets its way one more time, and the only well-acted character on The Mandalorian will simply disappear into the ether, likely killing the series for good after one more season. But destroying good things is the Perpetual Outrage Mob’s core competency, so no surprise there.

Pot, Meet Kettle Tweet of the Century:

Hooboy.

Today’s Short Term Memory Reminder. – Hey, remember last week, when I told you that all the members of the Lincoln Project who were out in the media claiming they never knew about the pedo-sexual proclivities of the group’s founder, John Weaver, were lying? Remember how I told you they all knew, that it was impossible for them not to have known, that many in Washington had in fact known about Weaver for 20 years, since he served as campaign manager for John McCain’s failed 2000 presidential campaign? Remember how some members of the Lincoln Project were out there threatening to sue anyone who told that truth about them and Mr. Weaver?

Well, gee, yesterday the Daily Caller ran this story:

Here’s an excerpt:

The Lincoln Project previously expressed shock over allegations against its co-founder John Weaver, but new reporting claims that Lincoln Project members knew of allegations against Weaver as early as June of last year.

Lincoln Project members were made aware of at least 10 allegations of harassment against Weaver in June 2020, the Associated Press reported. The group did not take action against Weaver as it continued its high-profile work combatting the re-election of former President Donald Trump.

Nevertheless, the Lincoln Project expressed shock in January over the allegations against Weaver.

“The totality of his deceptions are beyond anything any of us could have imagined and we are absolutely shocked and sickened by it,” the group said in a January statement.

The Lincoln Project did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Two of the allegations involved Lincoln Project employees, persons with direct knowledge of the situation told the AP. This is the first known suggestion that Weaver targeted staffers within the Lincoln Project, the publication reported.

Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt has also said that Lincoln Project leaders were not aware of allegations of Weaver’s wrongdoing.

[End]

Steve Schmidt, George Conway, and all the rest: Liars.

Glenn Greenwald captured the essence of the Lincoln Project in this tweet:

Thus, the Lincoln Project is conclusively revealed to be what anyone familiar with how the DC Swamp works knew it was from day one: A classic DC Swamp grift, the classic sort of money scam that has been the life’s blood of Swamp denizens for as long as DC has existed. This one happened to be led by a pedophile, but hey, it’s not the first time that has happened, either.

That is all.

Lindsey Graham and Liz Cheney: The Perfect Match in the DC Swamp

Oh, my, what a shocker this is. – You won’t ever believe this, y’all: Lindsey Graham supports Liz Cheney! Why, who could have ever seen this one coming?

Sen. Graham has always been a shameless sellout, but this dancing over what he believes is the political corpse of Donald Trump while it’s still warm really sets a new low for this disciple of John McCain. Graham’s always been the worst example of the follower culture in Washington, DC, a guy whose nature abhors the personal exercise of leadership and always feels the need to latch onto some father or mother figure to follow around like Grover Dill, the little toady from A Christmas Story, followed Scut Farkas around the back alleys of their Indiana town.

Graham spent over a decade following McCain around like a little puppy dog, always willing to jump and and shout “yeah!” anytime McCain was figuratively yanking some poor kid’s arm behind his back, taunting him to yell “Uncle!” It was the lamest act in DC right up until McCain’s death, after which Graham quickly latched onto following then-President Trump around and sucking up to him at every opportunity. A disgusting display that everyone knew was fake, as clearly demonstrated by Graham’s refusal to use his chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee to investigate the Obamagate cabal until it was too late.

But now, Trump’s gone and Graham is blowing in the wind like a an old clipper ship being tossed about in a storm, desperately searching for some other father or mother figure to latch onto. Enter Liz Cheney, the warmongering daughter of the former warmongering Vice President appropriately named Dick, a potential father figure Graham no doubt would have loved to follow around if only he hadn’t already had his lips firmly attached to John McCain’s behind throughout the entirety of the George W. Bush years.

Once again we see how phony Graham’s support for President Trump really was. Liz Cheney is in deep trouble today for the very fact that she chose to become one of handful of House Republicans to vote to impeach Trump on January 5. A true friend of Trump and believer in his peace-through-strength agenda would look on with glee as Cheney twisted in the wind and her approval rating back in Wyoming dropped into the teens as a result of her betrayal.

But not Sen. Graham. He’s only too happy to come toady for Cheney, since, in his heart of hearts, he is a true believer in the “Middle-East-wars-without-end” philosophy that she shares with her daddy and the dead McCain. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the second “I love Liz” tweet he sent out yesterday:

When Graham talks about his and Cheney’s desire to keep our military “well-prepared” to “confront radical Islam” and “take the fight to them,” he’s rubbing his hands in glee at the prospect of supporting the decision by Joe Biden’s handlers to send thousands more American military personnel into harm’s way so that all of the defense contractors that he and Cheney have spent so many years sucking up to can keep on cranking out tanks and planes and missiles under multi-hundred-billion dollar defense contracts. And hey, if the makers of those body bags and artificial limbs see an uptick in their business as well, then so much the better as far as Lindsey and Liz are concerned.

Oh, Trump kept the defense contractors employed, too, but all the peace his policies were causing to break out all over the Middle East and Africa was really bad for business in the long run. The lack of new wars meant that all that military equipment and ordinance wasn’t being showcased; not enough missiles were being used up in order to necessitate the manufacture of new ones; not enough usage of planes and helicopters and tanks meant a downturn in the contractors’ maintenance and replacement business lines.

Now Trump’s been banished and Lindsey and Liz and those who share their mindset are ascendant again. Why, Liz is even third in line in House GOP leadership, and thus wields real power from her congressional seat from Wyoming. Graham and the rest of the warmonger crowd can’t let that just slip away – if she ends up getting beaten by some challenger in Wyoming, why, he might not be someone they can’t count on.

And so, Lindsey has found a new leader to latch onto and tweets his support for her, no doubt after getting a phone call from Daddy Dick. This is what Lindsey Graham does; it is who he is.

No surprise here.

That is all.

Donald Trump Holds The Future of the Republican Party in his Hands

With the Trump presidency now in its final days and the Democan/Republicrat UniParty back in control of congress, talk will now inevitably turn to whether the Trump Army of 75 million voters will move to create a third party, effectively destroying the Republican Party in the process. Of course, we get this same sort of discussion anytime either party suffers a major defeat, and such efforts in the past have always failed.

But this time, things could be different for one simple fact that Tucker Carlson pointed to during his monologue on Thursday night’s show: The current leaders of the Republican Party just don’t like the vast majority of the party’s voter base, and Donald Trump does.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at The Daily Caller:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Thursday that the Republican Party leadership doesn’t “like their own voters.”

“And they especially don’t want the voters that Trump brought,” Carlson continued. “Trump brought the party’s ranks noticeably downscale, ‘from the country club to the trailer park,’ as they often sneer. And this horrifies them. Many Republicans in Washington now despise the people they’re supposed to represent and protect.”

Carlson claimed that “socially anxious white professionals” feel contempt for “working-class people who look like them.”

“So if you want to understand the hatred, the real hatred, not just disagreement but gut level loathing and fear of Trump — in say New York or Washington or L.A. — you’ve got to understand that first. It’s not really Trump; it’s his voters. The new money class despises them,” Carlson said.

[End]

I disagree somewhat with Carlson’s last statement there: The visceral hatred of the Trump movement in the major media centers of the country are about both Trump and his voters. The hatred and fear of that movement is only amplified by the reality that it’s really more than 75 million, given that it’s been pretty unarguably demonstrated that the true Trump vote was artificially depressed in every state where Dominion Systems technology is in use.

And let’s be honest, the hatred between the establishment Republicans and the vast majority of the GOP voter base is entirely mutual. Here is what happened at Reagan National Airport on Friday when Sen. Lindsey Graham, who used his chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee to avoid any real investigations into Obamagate and Spygate for the past two years, ran into a group of Trump supporters on Friday afternoon:

That’s an ugly scene, for sure. And remember, it’s a scene involving a politician whose Party’s ability to remain a national force depends on retaining the loyalty of those voters.

Seems like a pretty big lift, doesn’t it?

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee re-elected Ronna Romney McDaniel, the niece of the head RINO himself, Mitt Romney, to be its leader for the coming four years:

To her credit, Ms. McDaniel worked hard to help President Trump achieve his re-election, often finding herself at odds with her Uncle Mitt in the process. At the same time, though, she has been the public face of a Party that has too often operated at odds with its own voter base.

Witness yesterday’s massive putsch against conservative users coordinated by leftist Big Tech monopolies like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google and Apple: The GOP had four years with a Republican president do to something, anything to exact some control over these corporate oligarchies, and did exactly nothing. As the purge was taking place Friday evening, not a single leader in the Republican Party had anything of any real note to say in opposition to it.

Now, after the predictably inept effort and bad outcome in the Georgia Senate runoff elections, the GOP has failed itself right back into the position it held in January of 2019: Not in control of a single lever of power in Washington, DC. As was clearly demonstrated over the past two months, that lack of control includes the U.S. Supreme Court despite Trump’s three appointments to that body.

I have never been in favor of blowing the whole thing up and starting over where the Republican Party is concerned. At similar junctures in the past, such as January 2009, it has always seemed to be that it would be more productive to work to reform the GOP from within. Given this current situation, and the near-universal disaffection of Trump voters from the GOP representatives they have sadly helped to elect, it is difficult to maintain that outlook any longer.

At best, the Republican Party has proven itself to be largely corrupt and hopelessly inept over the past four years. At worst, its elected representatives have demonstrated that, by and large, they have nothing but contempt for the people who elected them, as most recently demonstrated by their refusal to do anything to rein in the abuses of the Big Tech monopolies.

Donald Trump had 88 million followers to his now-banned Twitter account. Should he choose to do so, he has the ability to now lead much of this loyal base of support completely away from the Republican Party and establish a political party of his own. Given that Trump has no more use for the GOP’s elected officials than his supporters do, it seems unarguably true that the Republican Party’s continued existence as a national force in American politics stands on thinner ice than it ever has in the past.

It couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of people.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: The FBI Sets its Lone Wolf Narrative and the New York Post Turns on Trump

All this WINNING may have finally run its course. – President Donald Trump surrendered on the horrific, 5,600 page omnibus spending bill Sunday evening. I cover that story, and its larger implications, in full in a separate piece this morning.

Little Lindsey’s all excited, though. – South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who no doubt counseled the President to wave the white flag, was all aglow with the outcome:

Oh, they’re going to “vote” on additional stimulus checks and repeal of Section 230. Guess which one will be approved and which one will miserably fail?

This is the best of all worlds for a McCain-style senate RINO: You get to bust the budget yet again and brag to constituents about how much money you got for them and do it all with the seal of approval from a president of your own party. As a bonus, you then get to vote “yes” on Section 230 repeal, knowing all the while that it has literally no chance of passage in either house of congress.

This is the stuff Little Lindsey dreams of.

Et tu, New York Post? – The editorial board at the New York Post has seen enough of the Trump election challenges, and published an editorial piece on Sunday urging the President to give up the ghost and focus on helping the two GOP senatorial candidates in Georgia win their runoff races.

Here’s an excerpt from that editorial:

You had every right to investigate the election. But let’s be clear: Those efforts have found nothing. To take just two examples: Your campaign paid $3 million for a recount in two Wisconsin counties, and you lost by 87 more votes. Georgia did two recounts of the state, each time affirming Biden’s win. These ballots were counted by hand, which alone debunks the claims of a Venezuelan vote-manipulating Kraken conspiracy.

Sidney Powell is a crazy person. Michael Flynn suggesting martial law is tantamount to treason. It is shameful.

We understand, Mr. President, that you’re angry that you lost. But to continue down this road is ruinous. We offer this as a newspaper that endorsed you, that supported you: If you want to cement your influence, even set the stage for a future return, you must channel your fury into something more productive.

Stop thinking about Jan. 6. Start thinking about Jan. 5.

[End]

This editorial from a rare media outlet that has been supportive of his presidency may have impacted President Trump’s thinking on the spending bill. Given that Mr. Trump had obviously chosen to fight over this bill as a symbol of his larger fight to reverse the clearly fraudulent results of this stolen election, his decision to surrender here likely has larger implications related to that overall effort.

If you haven’t already done so, you’d all be well-advised to begin preparing for four years of Biden and Harris.

Just to lighten the mood… – I thought this was funny, and wish it was real:

Back to reality, here is was the LAPD was doing on Sunday:

That’s right: Dozens of officers who have recently seen Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti lead the charge to defund their department to the tune of $150 million were called out to defend the despicable communist Democrat Mayor’s home from protesters.

You just could never in a million years make Democrats up if they didn’t already exist.

It’s a lone wolf! Who could’ve ever guessed? –  Welp, the FBI narrative on the Nashville bombing is set, and it’s the same narrative the FBI always uses in these situations: That of the “lone wolf.” Because of course it is.

The FBI announced on Sunday that, a mere 40 hours or so after the Christmas morning bombing of downtown Nashville, it has already identified the specific RV that blew up, raided the home of its owner, found body parts at the scene from which it obtained DNA, and already processed the DNA to prove it is that of the RV owner, one Anthony Quinn Warner, a 63 year-old local. Thus, we see the very same FBI that has sat on Anthony Weiner’s laptop for more than four years now, and on Hunter Biden’s for over a year without doing a damn thing with it, supposedly “solving” a major bombing of the downtown area of one of America’s great cities in the blink of an eye. And they do it all by pushing the exact same “lone wolf” narrative they have rolled out to the public related to every domestic terrorism attack in this century.

From a story at ABC News:

FBI investigators said DNA evidence found at the scene matched Anthony Quinn Warner, who was earlier named as a person of interest.

“Anthony Warner is the man believed to be responsible for this horrible crime,” Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake said at a news conference.

Human remains were discovered amid the blast debris, and investigators worked to determine if they belonged to the RV owner. Multiple law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News the suspect was identified as Warner of Antioch, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville.

Douglas Korneski, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Memphis field office, told reporters that investigators were able to make the match quickly after they obtained DNA from Warner’s home.

Korneski said there appears to be no other suspect involved with the bombing, but the investigation is ongoing.

Authorities believe the RV was parked in front of an AT&T transmission building at 1:22 a.m. on Friday, but it remains unclear if the building was targeted. The Tennessee Highway Patrol confirmed the RV’s VIN was registered to Warner.

[End]

It is truly stunning how stupid they think we all are. Given that the American public has been lapping this crap up for two solid decades now and going right back to sleep, they’re probably right.

Wednesday News Roundup: Trump Disrupts the Swamp With Veto Threat, Pardons

[After a week in the dumpster with technical issues, DBDailyUpdate is back up and running this morning thanks to the sterling efforts of an excellent firm that provides an array of fully-managed hosting services. I have retained their services going forward, so the days of me struggling to try to get these problems figured out myself are over. 

I had previously considered just taking the rest of this terrible year off, but let’s face it: There’s just too much going on for that to really happen. So, enough small talk: Let’s go to the Wednesday News Roundup.]

Dear Congress: Donald Trump is still your President. Deal with it. – At least, he’s still the President until January 20th, a fact that is causing a great deal of consternation among the Democans and Republicrats in congress this morning, after the President released a 4-minute video clip promising to veto the atrocity of a $900 billion COVID spending bill they sent over to his desk on Tuesday.

That clip and a full transcript of the President’s remarks are contained in a separate post this morning. Suffice it to say, congressional Democans and Republicrats are not real happy this morning as they awake to the reality that their own planned two-week vacations are being interrupted by a POTUS who won’t just sign off on their latest effort to loot the American taxpayer.

President Trump is also threatening to veto the separate, $1.4 trillion defense/spending bill congress also passed on Monday evening. Lindsey Graham tweeted last night that the President would reconsider both vetoes if the bills were amended to include a larger payment to U.S. citizens and to include repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, language that enables the big tech social media monopolies to engage in rank discrimination:

The problem the Democans and Republicrats in congress have here is that, at this point, the President has nothing to lose by vetoing these bills, given the current “official” status of the election outcome, in which China Joe Potato Head Biden has been declared the “winner” by Dominion Systems and corrupt election officials in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada.

President Trump doesn’t have to worry about ever standing for re-election again, and hey, what’s one more bad media day for this man? Yes, unemployment benefits are scheduled to expire on Saturday unless a bill is signed into law to extend them, but the President has placed that ball squarely back in Congress’s court.

So, senators and representatives who rushed out of DC on Monday evening and during the day on Tuesday are probably going to have to rush back out to the Swamp to do a little damage control, and that will not make them happy, not at all.

Cool.

Pardon me? – No, but the President did issue pardons for 15 Americans on Tuesday, including George Papadopoulous, who was one of the main subjects of the illegal spying operation mounted by Obama’s FBI and Intelligence Community against the 2016 Trump Campaign. This is great news, as Papadopoulous did nothing wrong, but was bullied by the Mueller Gestapo into pleading guilty to a meaningless perjury charge back in 2018 in order to avoid his family members being targeted, just as they did to General Mike Flynn.

Other Trump pardons included former GOP congressmen Duncan Hunter and Steve Stockman, demonstrating that even Trump himself is not immune to the political demands of the Swamp. Those pardons were definitely undeserved.

The President also pardoned two former Border Patrol officers who were subjected to an entirely political prosecution over the killing of an illegal alien during the George W. Bush administration. Their sentences were previously commuted by Bush, but these full pardons finally give them some real justice, although nothing can ever undo the harm caused to their lives by the corrupt Department of Justice.

The rest of the pardons are detailed in this Business Insider piece:

Among the former lawmakers Trump pardoned was Duncan Hunter, who pleaded guilty last year to one count of misusing campaign funds. He was sentenced to 11 months in prison but has not yet begun serving out his sentence.

Also on the list was former GOP congressman Steve Stockman, who was convicted in 2018 on 23 felony counts of fraud, money laundering, conspiracy, and false statements. Stockman was sentenced to ten years in prison and ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution. Trump commuted the remainder of Stockman’s sentence on Tuesday, citing his age, his pre-existing health conditions, and the fact that he contracted COVID-19 while in prison.

Trump also granted a pardon to former Rep. Chris Collins, who pleaded guilty last year to making false statements to the FBI and conspiracy to commit securities fraud. He is currently serving out a 26-month sentence.

The four Blackwater guards Trump pardoned on Tuesday were found guilty in connection to a deadly shooting in Baghdad that killed 17 Iraqi civilians. One of the former contractors, Nicholas Slatten, was convicted of first-degree murder and is serving out a lifetime prison sentence. The other three defendants were convicted of multiple counts of voluntary manslaughter, attempted manslaughter, and firearms offenses.

The two former Border Patrol agents the president pardoned, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, were convicted in 2006 for shooting and injuring an unarmed undocumented immigrant. Their sentences were later commuted by President George W. Bush, and Trump granted them full pardons on Tuesday.

[End]

The real shame in all of this is that Papadopoulous had to wait so long to have his name fully cleared. But that’s how the DC Swamp works.

Fantastic! How can I help? – The corrupt news media will be all verklempt about it, but this is wonderful news for America: Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz are trying to convince President Trump to submit both the Obama Iran Nuclear deal and the Paris Climate Accords to the Senate for ratification:

Graham and Cruz know without any doubt at all that neither deal – which Obama executed as “executive agreements” during his 8-year reign of terror against the American Republic – could possibly garner the 2/3rds approval of the senate needed for ratification, thus killing them completely dead before China Joe Potato Head can assume office and re-implement them as executive agreements.

It’s a fantastic plan, and we should all hope that President Trump takes advantage of it.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at the UK Independent:

Republican senators Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham have reportedly urged Donald Trump to submit both the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris Climate Agreement to the Senate, in a last-minute attempt to stop the US rejoining the accords once the president leaves office.

In a letter obtained by RealClearPolitics, Mr Cruz, from Texas, urged Mr Trump and US secretary of state Mike Pompeo to submit the accords to the Senate before President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated on 20 January.

Mr Cruz said that submitting the international agreements would trigger votes to ratify them, which are unlikely to pass with a tight Senate, as they would need the support of two-thirds of senators, according to iran-nuclear-deal-republicans-aim-to-block-biden-rejoining”>The Guardian.

The senator claims that if the accords fail to be ratified, it would effectively block Mr Biden from rejoining them, as he would have to contradict a recent decision from the Senate.

A senior congressional aide told RealClearPolitics that submitting the accords to fail in the Senate “would be the final nail in the coffin.”

In his letter to the president, Mr Cruz wrote: “I urge you now to remedy the harm done to the balance of powers by submitting the Iran deal and the Paris agreement to the Senate as treaties.”

He added: “Only by so doing will the Senate be able to satisfy its constitutional role to provide advice and consent in the event any future administration attempts to revive these dangerous deals.”

[End]

Understand that all Cruz and Graham are advising President Trump to do is to subject these two treasury-looting deals to the normal course of order that Obama should have been required to follow. Constitutionally, this is the process required to commit the United States of America to such international agreements, a process that has been bastardized and corrupted by decades of horrible Supreme Court decisions enabling Obama’s betrayals.

Do it, Mr. President. After all, what have you got to lose?

That is all.

Raffensperger Seeks Shelter From CNN and the Washington Post

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is severely compromised and needs to be removed. Unfortunately, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp also appears to be compromised, as we discussed over the weekend. Raffensperger entered into a probably-illegal consent decree with Stacy Abrams’ voter fraud subornation team last spring that he believes prevents the state from examining mail-in ballots for simple things like valid signatures and addresses. He appears to be desperate to keep that decree in force in order to ensure that Joe Biden “won” his state on November 3.

All of this compromise by Raffensperger led him yesterday to seek shelter with the corrupt news media, specifically with CNN and the Washington Post. In interviews with both fake news outlets, Raffensperger accused Sen. Lindsey Graham and other prominent Republicans of “pressuring” him to throw out ballots that he desperately wants to count.

From a story at the New York Times:

Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state, on Monday accused fellow Republicans of trying to undermine the legitimacy of the state’s election in an effort to swing the results to President Trump, who narrowly lost the state to President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. and later demanded the hand recount.

Election officials in Georgia also announced Monday evening that they had discovered 2,600 ballots in Floyd County that had not been previously reported to the state, a notable but overall minor hiccup in what they otherwise described as a smooth recounting of the nearly five million ballots cast by Georgia voters during the presidential election.

The counting is expected to wrap up this week, and elections officials have reported few problems aside from the error in Floyd County, which is located in northwestern Georgia and voted heavily for Mr. Trump. Democrats said the recount had so far resulted in no substantive changes, at least none that would affect the lead currently enjoyed by Mr. Biden.

“The Floyd County situation was unfortunate,” said Gabriel Sterling, an official with the office of Georgia’s secretary of state. However, he added, “The majority of the counties right now are finding zero deviations from the original number of ballots.”

Mr. Raffensperger, in an interview with The Washington Post, said that Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was among those Republicans seeking to challenge legally cast absentee ballots with the aim of helping Mr. Trump take the lead in a state in which he is losing by several thousand votes. According to Mr. Raffensperger, Mr. Graham asked about possible ways that ballots could be disqualified, including whether the secretary of state could reject all absentee ballots in counties that had a high number of signature mismatches on those ballots.

A spokesperson for Mr. Raffensperger declined to comment when reached Monday evening. Senator Graham, speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill on Monday, denied that he had suggested to Mr. Raffensperger that he find a way to throw out legally cast ballots.

“That’s ridiculous,” said Mr. Graham, who said that his conversation with Mr. Raffensperger covered questions about Georgia’s system of using signatures to verify the identity of voters who use absentee ballots. “I thought it was a good conversation,” Mr. Graham said. “I’m surprised to hear he characterized it that way.”

Mr. Raffensperger, a lifelong Republican, was stung last week when Georgia’s senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, both ardent Trump supporters, called for Mr. Raffensperger’s resignation, accusing him of mismanagement and calling the election he oversaw “an embarrassment.”

[End]

In past elections, the rejection rates for mail-in and absentee ballots due to lack of valid signatures and addresses was about 3% in Georgia. In this election, that rejection rate fell to just .02% thanks to Raffensperger’s convenient deal with the Democrats and their voter fraud efforts. The difference in those two percentages would far more than enough to deny Biden his illegitimate “win” in the state.

There can be no doubt that Graham and Georgia Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, among others, have indeed questioned Raffensperger on why he has chosen to abandon the most fundamental methods of ensuring that ballots were cast legally in this election. Indeed, this was the very reason why the two Georgia Senators called for his resignation.

Raffensperger has no legitimate argument to support his collusion with the Democrats, which is why he has now resorted to seeking shelter with CNN and the Washington Post.

Someone really needs to take a very deep dive into Mr. Raffensperger’s background. His behavior is frankly inexplicable unless he is severely compromised where Dominion Systems and this election is concerned.

No, Sen. Graham, There Can Be No Compromise With An Illegitimate Presidency

They’re coming for you, folks. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise. – All talk by the Democrats of unifying the country that we saw during the campaign has now gone up in smoke, replaced very quickly by talk of taking lists of Trump supporters in order to punish them for their sins over the last four years. And – no surprise at all here – they are being ably assisted by the creeps in the #NeverTrump RINO crowd.

Keeping this kind of list of political enemies and using it to punish them is of course a favored tactic of all despots down through history, including Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro and Hugo Chavez. It is just another part of the Marxist/Nazi playbook that the Democrat Party is now adopting as its own.

And – no surprise here at all – the leader of the movement is of course Alexandria Ocasio Cortez:

Here’s supreme #NeverTrump nitwit Jennifer Rubin, one of the WaPo’s pet fake conservative writers, helping to lead the charge:

And here is the pathetic RINO Evan what’s-his-name desperately attempting to make himself relevant somehow, some way to someone:

“We should keep and publish a list” said every Marxist/Leninist/Nazi despot in world history.

That is your Democrat Party today. Do not doubt me on this, as Rush Limbaugh would say.

Also no surprise at all is that the Cheese-eating Surrender Monkey caucus in the U.S. Senate is already making noises about surrendering to a Biden/Harris stolen presidency. – Because of course they are, and guess who the leader of this move is?

That’s right: Lindsey Graham. Take a look:

No, Biden doesn’t “deserve” a cabinet. He doesn’t deserve a damn thing. He obviously, blatantly stole this election, and Republicans should not spend a moment of their time on a single day in the next four years treating him and his designated successor as if he/she is a legitimate president. He is a usurper, an enemy of the people and the state, and should be treated thusly. And when he steps down at some point a few months into his term and is replaced by Kamala Harris, she should be treated the very same way.

That is how the Democrats treated Donald Trump for four long years, and that and nothing more is what Biden/Harris deserve from the GOP. Rather than surrender and deliver them a cabinet of their choosing, the GOP Senate majority should vote down every damn nominee whose political views lie to the left of Winston Churchill, for the good of the country. The senate majority should vote down every policy proposal that comes their way, reject every nominee to the courts, reject every treaty sent for them to ratify.

The senate majority should, for the good and survival of this nation, forget about legislating and spend every moment of every waking day holding hearings investigating every move made by Biden/Harris, just as the Democrat House majority has spent its time over the past two years. No Republican worth having that designation next to his or her name should concede a shred of legitimacy to the atrocity the Democrat Party is seeking to perpetrate on our country.

The evidence is clear and overwhelming at this point that the Democrat Party has systematically stolen this election through massive fraud involving millions of mail-in ballots. The proof of outright fraud is everywhere, and no Republican should ever for a moment treat a Biden/Harris regime as being legitimate in any way, shape or form.

To his credit, Graham did say later that he is not conceding that Biden has “won” the election. But the very fact that he is even thinking about “reaching across the aisle” to compromise with a political party that is attempting to execute yet another coup d’etat on American soil is unacceptable, and those of us who love this country must make that crystal clear.

No compromise is acceptable, because compromise with usurpers is nothing but surrender.

If we are now in the list-keeping phase of American politics, let’s all keep lists of every Republican we see spending a second of time “reaching across the aisle” and compromising with an illegitimate junta, and vote them all out of office in 2022.

That is all.

Plenty of Good News for the GOP in This Election

It’s morning again in America; not the morning we necessarily had hoped for, but one filled with hope and promise for the future, as America’s mornings tend to be.

With all the angst prevailing over the presidential race still being up in the air, let’s focus on the good news out of this election for the GOP, because there was plenty to be found.

Let’s start with the U.S. Senate, which appears to be destined to remain in GOP hands:

– Mitch McConnell rolled to an easy win in Kentucky;

– Lindsey Graham overcame $130 million in Hollywood/New York money funding his Democrat opponent to roll to a landslide, 12-point re-election;

– John James appears poised to take the Michigan seat from Democrat Gary Peters;

– Tommy Tubberville has re-taken the Alabama seat from Democrat Doug Jones;

– Steve Daines rolled to an easy win in Montana over heavily-funded Democrat Steve Bullock;

– John Cornyn ran up an easy, 10-point victory over his goofy opponent in Texas;

– Not sure this is “good” news, but even Susan Collins appears to have won her re-election in Maine.

All in all, these victories and others will be enough to secure a GOP majority in the Senate for the next two years. If Sonny Perdue can avoid a runoff, that majority will be at least 51 seats, and if James can hang on and if Kelly Loeffler can win her runoff against Democrat Raphael Warnock, the majority will remain at 53 seats.

Thus, the GOP Senate majority has been vindicated for its decision to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and will now serve as a firewall against the excesses of a Biden/Harris presidency should that end up coming to fruition. This outcome was vital for the safety of the Republic, so celebrate this, even if it does mean we have to listen Susan Collins for another 6 years.

Meanwhile, in Texas… – One thing I actually got right was the fact that Texas was never really “in play” as an array of fake polls commissioned by various media outlets and opportunist universities tried to pretend.

President Trump will end up winning Texas by 6%, while Senator Cornyn and Republican Texas Railroad Commission candidate Jim Wright trounced their well-funded Democrat opponents by double digits. The GOP also retained its majorities in both houses of the state legislature and will retain 2/3rds of the state’s seats in the U.S. house.

Texas remains a reliably red state, and will stay that way for the foreseeable future.

***UPDATE*** One more thing I forgot to mention about Texas: Wendy Davis and Beto O’Rourke got smacked down one more time by Lone Star State voters. Abortion Barbie was soundly defeated in her race for the state’s 21st congressional district, losing to incumbent Chip Roy by 7% of the vote.

Irish Bob wasn’t on the ballot, but he campaign heavily for both Davis and M.J. Hegar, the weird woman who attempted to challenge John Cornyn. O’Rourke was also instrumental in convincing the national Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee to establish a costly office operation in Austin, throwing millions of good money after bad.

This outright repudiation couldn’t happen to a nicer couple of people.

But what about Florida? – Florida just keeps getting redder, and that’s a great thing for America. The President won that state by about 400,000 votes thanks in large part to his making major inroads with the Cuban/Venezuelan immigrant community in Miami/Dade County. The state’s Republican Party needs to work hard to ensure those new Hispanic voters are paid attention to in the coming years, because if they feel ignored and taken for granted, that progress could be quickly lost.

GOP congressional candidates also ousted a pair of Democrat incumbents in southern Florida, including the execrable old communist hack Donna Shalala.

Ohio sets its redness in stone. – Trump won this state by 8 points, and much of that phenomenon can be attributed to the state’s new focus on oil and gas production from the prolific Marcellus and Utica Shale formations. As in Pennsylvania, Fracking politics had a big role to play here.

Some other congressional pickups. – Republicans will not flip the House, but San Fran Nan won’t be expanding her majority, either. GOP challengers managed to flip several seats, with several more still up in the air.

From a story at USA Today:

Democrats are expected to retain control of the House of Representatives but optimistic projections that they would be expanding their already robust margin are falling short.

Instead, Republicans have enjoyed some bragging rights, unseating freshmen incumbents in South Florida, New Mexico, Oklahoma and South Carolina, while successfully defending what looked to be several vulnerable seats in Texas and elsewhere. And early Wednesday, the GOP claimed its biggest prize by knocking off 15-term Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota.

It’s a stark contrast to 2018, when Democrats picked up key seats — many in suburban areas — that helped flip the House from Republican control to a Democratic majority. Not all the news was bad, as Democrats were expected to pick up a handful of GOP seats, including two in North Carolina districts that were redistricted under court order.

[End]

The presidential contest will play itself out one way or the other, and if it goes the wrong way America will soon have its first woman president. But it may still go the right way, and there is nothing most of us can do about it one way or the other.

So, be of good cheer, folks, for all is not lost and there is much good news to celebrate today. Go live your lives to the fullest and keep your loved ones safe.

That is all.

Final Prediction: Trump Wins Again in America’s First Outrage Election

Let Freedom ring, let the white bird sing;
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning;
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong;
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay; it’s Independence day! – Martina McBride, written by Gretchen Peters

Ok, here’s my final projection: Donald Trump will be re-elected in an electoral landslide that will easily eclipse his 2016 victory. Trump will win every state he won in 2016 – yes, including MI and WI and PA – and will add several other states to his column. Think Nevada and Virginia and New Hampshire and New Mexico.

Final tally: Trump 344, Biden 194. A clear and convincing landslide in America’s first Outrage Election.

The popular vote will be closer – much closer, thanks to the brainwashed masses in California and New York and Illinois and New Jersey, although Jersey will be closer than most people are thinking right now. Illinois will be closer, too. I still think Trump wins the popular vote, but barely, by a million votes or so.

Here’s the beauty part: Trump will have coattails, and those coattails will bring endangered GOP senators like Sonny Perdue in Georgia and Joni Ernst in Iowa and Martha McSally in Arizona and Little Lindsey Graham in South Carolina over the finish line despite the hundreds of millions in Hollywood/New York money that poured into the campaigns of their Democrat challengers. Couple those holds with pickups by John James in Michigan and Tommy Tubberville in Alabama, and what will be a very narrow loss by Cory Gardner in Colorado, and you have the GOP holding a 54 seat majority in the Senate for the next two years, an incredible upset considering they had 14 more seats up for re-election than the Democrats did in this cycle.

Now, here’s the bad news: The Red Wave likely will not translate to the GOP picking up a majority in the House, due mainly to incredibly inept campaigns run by R congressional candidates in Texas, Georgia and several other states. Unfortunately, the Republicans in those states chose to take the advice of the same pollsters that advise Democrats and have run campaigns in which you would never even know they are Republicans, always a losing strategy for the Rs.

The prime example of this is Genevieve Collins in Texas’s 32nd district, who is challenging Collin Allred in a very even district. Collins ran one of the most effective primary campaigns I have ever seen, prevailing over a strong field with ads that clearly identified her as the all-American anti-socialist Republican in the race who would go to Washington to get stuff done. Some of you may remember I predicted that, if she ran the same campaign this fall, she would take this seat back from Allred, who unseated longtime incumbent R Pete Sessions in 2018.

Sadly, Collins has listened to advisors who told her to completely shift in the general election, running as Collin Allred light, a non-partisan candidate with touch-feely messaging who you would never know was a Republican or conservative. Many other GOP candidates are obviously using the same polling and communications firms to advise them, and they will pretty much all lose in the even districts as a result.

So, keep an eye on Texas 32: If you see Collins winning tonight, then you are probably going to see a Republican majority ushered in in January. My bet is she will lose because she failed to distinguish herself from her very leftwing opponent with a 100% record of fealty to Nancy Pelosi. An incredible lost opportunity that need not have happened.

Whether the presidential election gets called tonight depends on the President being able to run up enough electoral votes in other states to make Pennsylvania irrelevant, given that the corrupt Democrat governor and Lt. Governor have already made it clear they will not even start releasing vote counts until Wednesday. That’s why the states to watch early will be Florida, Virginia and New Hampshire. If we see Florida and either of those other two states called for Trump tonight, then you can feel safe that it’s all over but the crying.

Early voting trends indicate that President Trump will win Florida by a significantly larger margin than he did in 2016, so it could end up being called much earlier than the wee hours of the morning that we saw four years ago. A Trump win in Virginia would signal a Red Wave of epic proportions, and such electoral waves do not stop at state borders – they roll nationally. My bet is that the much higher turnout by non-college educated white voters and higher percentage of black and Hispanic voters going to Trump (his Black vote percentage could be as high as 18%, double what he got in 2016) will make the difference, and the media that is hoping for a hung verdict to facilitate the Democrats’ post-election voter fraud plans will end up having little choice but to call the election before sunrise on Wednesday.

Disclaimer: I called every aspect of the 2016 election right, including the GOP waves in congress and the state houses. But I did miss on my prediction that the GOP would hold the house majority in 2018, so I have been wrong before.

Those of you who have read me for the past several years know that my theory on presidential elections is that they all come down to being decided based on national voter inertia, not on local issues as many pundits like to pretend. That inertia in the past has always either moved in favor of retaining the status quo, or wanting change. 2016 was a change election, and Trump won because he was the only true change agent in the race.

This year is the first time in my lifetime that is different. This election is neither a status quo or change election: This is our first outrage election.

This year has been more difficult to get a good handle on, complicated as it has been by the China Virus pandemic and the entire national news media/social media apparatus turning itself into a very real Nazi-style propaganda tool for the Democrats. The media’s wall of disinformation about the virus and the summer of Democrat-sponsored rioting that destroyed vast swaths of a dozen Democrat-run cities resulted in it taking a long time for the public to figure out which side to direct its focused outrage towards.

Over the past month, the public has figured it out, and millions of Americans are outraged by all the deception. The big turnout by non-college educated white voters who are sick of being portrayed in the media as privileged racists is one big indicator of this outrage, but it is not the only one. Also outraged by all the deception are the Black voters who are turning to Trump due to their outrage about having been pandered and lied to by race-baiting hucksters for half a century and more, and millions of Hispanic voters who are equally outraged by the media’s portraying them as a monolithic block with no diversity of thought.

That outrage, that focused anger towards the media and the utterly corrupt political establishment in Washington, DC, is what is producing America’s first Outrage Election, and it is why Donald J. Trump will serve a second term in office thanks to a resounding victory today.

I’ve been wrong before, but I don’t think this is one of those days.

God Bless all of you, and God Bless America.

Amy Coney Barrett’s Confirmation Finally Gives America a Reliable Constitutionalist Majority

It all went exactly according to plan. The senators all got their allotted time to pontificate and whine on the Senate floor; Mitch McConnell was able to sum everything up, excoriating the Democrats for their pathetic petulance and rank hypocrisy; 52 Republican senators did the right thing and voted to confirm the new Supreme Court Justice; 47 Democrats were joined by despicable RINO Susan Collins in voting against her; and finally, exactly one month to the day after she was nominated and eight days before Election Day 2020, Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as the 115th associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court by fellow Justice Clarence Thomas.

Happy Birthday, Hillary Clinton!

Image may contain: 2 people, people standing

You might assume I’m being facetious with that last comment, but if you don’t think President Trump insisted on swearing ACB in late last night instead of waiting to do it at a more reasonable hour today, you don’t understand Donald Trump. He fully understood the wonderful confluence of events he helped to create here.

Thus, a new day in America dawns with a reliable 5-4 constitutionalist majority on the Supreme Court that would be 6-3 were Chief Justice John Roberts not so obviously compromised and siding more and more frequently with the Court’s three remaining leftist activists.

But hey, 5-4 is all we need to secure the liberties guaranteed us under the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Our new Justice will be on the job today, probably showing up for work as I write this piece, and will have the ability to weigh in on every case the Court sees from here on out. Given what we know will be a massive effort by the Democrats to steal this election during the days and weeks after November 3, the presence of a 5th firmly constitutionalist justice is quite reassuring.

Regardless of how this election turns out – and signs continue to be that it will turn out well for President Trump – America is now blessed with the fact that Donald John Trump has appointed fully 1/3rd of the current Supreme Court roster and stands to very likely appoint at least two more during his second term. No president in American history has kept his promises in the way this President has done, and his promise to appoint strict constructionist conservative judges is chief among them.

In addition to his three sterling appointments to the Supreme Court, President Trump has now appointed and had confirmed a whopping 162 federal district court judges and 53 to the various U.S. courts of appeals. Even better, he currently has 53 nominees before the Senate, and 2 additional court of appeals openings left to fill before the end of the year.

What he and Mitch McConnell have achieved – together with Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham, who have chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee over the past four years – has been truly epic, a focus on filling vacant judgeships that is unprecedented in its successful execution. It is a legacy that will endure for decades. It is a stunning, consequential achievement.

We are seeing its fruits in the lead up to this election, with decision after decision by the federal courts to deny depraved Democrats in their crass efforts to extend vote-counting by days and weeks in various states so that their operatives can invent enough fraudulent votes to steal the presidency. Again yesterday, the Supreme Court denied an attempt by Democrats in Wisconsin to be able to “count” mail-in ballots that are postmarked up to 6 days after Election Day, an obvious attempt to engage in massive voter fraud.

In these decisions and so many others we see just how crucial Trump’s win in 2016 over the Pantsuit Princess truly was for our nation. Elections have consequences and no presidential election in our history has been more consequential than the last one.

Well, except maybe for this current one, that is. If we wish to preserve all of the incredible array of Trump accomplishments in office, he simply must win a second term in office given that Biden/Harris Harris/Biden have promised to move the clock back to 2016 in so many ways.

Which brings us right back to how important it was to get Amy Coney Barrett ensconced and working on the Supreme Court this week, where she can join four other reliable constitutionalist justices serving as a bulwark against the most extreme excesses of this communist Democrat Party and the ongoing betrayals by Chief Justice Roberts.

God Bless Donald Trump for her nomination and the 52 members of the U.S. Senate for confirming her.

That is all.

Cancel the Amy Coney Barrett Hearings, Now

Just one more reason why these hearings should not be held. – Well, two reasons, actually, that the Democrats in the Senate provided to Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham on Monday. Two glaring reasons why the Judiciary Committee hearings on the Amy Coney Barrett nomination should be cancelled now, today, and the nomination should immediately be taken to the Senate floor for an up-or-down vote.

Reason #1 was provided by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who told fawning fake reporters that he and his fellow Democrats would boycott any votes in committee or on the floor related to the nomination. Ok, well, given that, what’s the point of hearings? If every member of the minority party has made up his or her mind on the nomination and will not even show up to vote on it, why allow this farce to go on?

As I’ve pointed out before, there is no requirement for the Judiciary Committee to hold these hearings. They are a matter of Senate process, not constitutional law. In the past, the point of holding such hearings was to vet the nominee and allow the committee to render a studied judgment on his or her qualifications for the job. The point of that judgment was so that the Committee as a whole could issue a recommendation to the full Senate on whether or not to confirm the nominee. Given that not a single member of the committee – Republican or Democrat – has an open mind on the incredibly well-qualified nominee, there is no point to holding these hearings.

Besides, Judge Barrett was just vetted for her seat on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals three short years ago, and was confirmed on a bipartisan vote. How much more does this committee need to know?

This takes us to Reason #2: The Democrats made a strategic decision at Monday’s hearing to simply turn it into a campaign event revolving around the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare. Every Democrat on the Committee used their 10 minute opening statements as a commercial for the ACA and why they think it should be retained. Every one of them read comments written for them by some staffer, all based on the same ACA-centered talking points. Only a handful even bothered to discuss the nomination and Judge Barrett’s qualifications in any real way.

It’s a campaign event, not a hearing. They’re focusing on the ACA instead of their real driving issue – abortion on demand, including infanticide after birth – because Obamacare polls more favorably for them than abortion does. It really is that simple.

Thus, lacking any cogent, legitimate arguments why Judge Barrett should not be confirmed, they stage a campaign rally and then promise to take their ball and go home like that pathetic little kid who lived down the street from you when you were in second grade.

McConnell and Graham should take this childish behavior by their “friends” on the other side as an opportunity to invite them all to go home. If they wish to stage campaign events related to Obamacare, then they should pay for them from their own campaign funds. There is no valid reason for Senate Republicans to enable them and allow them to conduct this joint rally on government time.

This farce should end, now.

That is all.

Bartiromo: No Justice from Barr and Durham

I’ve been debating all day about what, if anything, to write about this morning’s news from Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that her sources – who have been pretty reliable – are now telling her that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham have now decided that we are too close to the election for any indictments or reports to be issued prior to Election Day. Which of course is exactly what I told you to expect to be the case on Friday.

Using this excuse to hold up the execution of justice is itself a political decision and an intervention into the election on behalf of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden ticket, the preferred ticket of the Deep State. Let’s also point out that the one and only reason we have gotten “too close” to election day is due to the incessant delay and stalling by Barr and Durham themselves.

The incessant delays by Barr/Durham have been matched by the incessant delays by Lindsey Graham in his stewardship of the Senate Judiciary Committee and its activities since January 2019. Graham appeared on Bartiromo’s show this morning, bragging like a little banty rooster about how tough he’s gonna be on James Comey when he finally, at long last appears before the Committee to testify on Wednesday. Graham was practically wetting himself with pride as he informed Bartiromo and her viewers that he has also made a deal for Andrew McCabe to testify on October 6, and is “negotiating” with Peter Strzok to grace the committee with his presence later in October.

And…so what? After taking all this testimony, then what happens? Had Graham done all of this a year ago when he should have, he’d have been able to collate all the testimony, roll it into a formal report and make it public for voters to consume and consider well in advance of the election. But now, there is no time for any of that, and if Biden/Harris Harris/Biden win in November, it all gets washed away in any event, regardless of which party controls the Senate, which has been Graham’s grand plan all along.

The same will happen with Durham’s work in the event of a Biden victory, and if President Trump is elected to a second term, Durham and Barr will just keep finding excuses to delay and do nothing until the President becomes fed up with them both and replaces them. Given that the only new AG the senate would be willing to approve would be another Swampy guy just like Barr, that wouldn’t make any difference in the ultimate outcome.

The ultimate outcome is this: Trump is a man alone, and the Swamp can always outlast him. It’s time for all of us to give up on any notion that the Obama people who executed a coup d’ etat on American soil will ever be held accountable and to just focus on other matters.

That focus need to be on each and every one of us getting out and voting for Donald Trump, and against anyone with a D next to their name. Yes, that even includes the D running against Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, because as much of a worthless snake as Graham is, he is still light years superior to any Democrat.

The multi-tiered system of justice is too ingrained at the DOJ for any one president to cure, but what President Trump has achieved in spite of its existence and constant attacks on him and his administration has been far too sea-changing to give up now.

Even Barr has his usefulness despite his betrayal on Obamagate. His department continues to do yeoman’s work on disrupting and prosecuting human trafficking networks, arresting and prosecuting domestic terrorists and seeking out and disrupting Democrat vote fraud activities. And he’s getting all of that done with a worthless hack like Christopher Wray running the FBI. Just think of how much more he will be able to do post-election when Wray is fired and replaced with someone who is hopefully competent.

Keep your chin up and get out and vote and encourage everyone you know to do the same. If there is to be no justice from the Deep State, then we should ensure they get no peace for the next four years, and then for every four years after that until they have finally been rooted out.

We are engaged in a long, twilight struggle for the soul of this country, and it’s a fight we cannot afford to lose.

Why the Senate Should Confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett This Week

“I clerked for Justice Scalia more than 20 years ago, and the lessons I learned still resonate. His judicial philosophy is mine, too. A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policymakers, and they must be resolute in setting aside any policy views they might hold…I love the United States, and I love the United States Constitution.” – Judge Amy Coney Barrett yesterday.

That 100 word statement describes in a nutshell why Democrats and their America-hating toadies in the corrupt news media hate Judge Amy Coney Barrett and will do anything they can come up with to smear and slander her. The Constitution, and a strict interpretation of its actual words, has been anathema to the Democrat Party since Woodrow Wilson was elected in 1912. It is in fact a bane on that Party’s very existence.

With Senate Democrats lining up to announce they will not only oppose her nomination, but that they will also refuse to even meet with her when she makes the traditional courtesy visits to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other key senators, Lindsey Graham announced on Saturday that his committee hearings on Judge Barrett’s nomination will start on October 12. If Graham is saying that publicly, then that means he has the sign-off from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to proceed with those hearings.

My only question is, why? Why are Senate Republicans agreeing to hold committee hearings at all on a nomination whose ultimate outcome is a fait accompli? No Democrat will support Barrett’s confirmation. Joe Manchin will make noises about doing that, but he will ultimately allow Chuck Schumer to bully him one more time into marching along with the rest of the Democrat Senate fascists, because that is what Joe Manchin does.

Meanwhile, with Lisa Murkowski now coming around in the face of a primary threat from Sara Palin, only one Republican Senator, Susan Collins (of course), is even implying she might not support Barrett’s confirmation before Election Day. Mitt Romney may ultimately fink out and cast his wormy lot with the Democrats just as he did in their impeachment scam, but that won’t be enough.

Mitch McConnell has the votes to confirm Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday. That would be the logical thing to do in this case since the Court convenes for its 2020-21 session on the first Monday in October, just 8 days from now. The goal of the U.S. Senate should always be that it acts as expeditiously as possible to ensure the Court always has its full compliment of 9 justices.

But what about the vetting process? Good lord, Judge Barrett was confirmed to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals just three years ago, and was thoroughly vetted at that time. She even received the confirmation votes of 3 Democrats – along with every Senate Republican, including Collins and Murkowski (Romney was not in the Senate in 2017) – for that high profile appointment. There is literally no valid reason at all for the Judiciary Committee to go through that process all over again.

The Democrats desperately want these hearings for the sole reason that they would then be able to create the same sort of character assassination circus that they did with Brett Kavanaugh and, to a slightly lesser extent, Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s first two nominees. McConnell has exactly zero obligation or duty to provide the Democrats that platform.

Many Republicans argue that the creation of another confirmation hearing slander circus would be bad for the Democrats politically, and that’s probably true. But this is a woman’s life we are talking about here. Politics should not be the main consideration. Judge Barrett is a wife and mother of 7 children, children who should not be subjected to the kind of abuse and smearing the Democrats and their activists will throw at them and their mother in the lead-up to and conduct of such hearings.

Judge Barrett is an extremely well-qualified jurist who has led an exemplary American life. There are no valid arguments to make otherwise. She also has already very recently been vetted and confirmed to a seat on a U.S. Appellate Court by the U.S. Senate.

The Judiciary Committee hearing should be cancelled. Judge Barrett should be confirmed this week and seated on the Court when it convenes on the First Monday in October.

That is all.

McConnell Should Deny the Democrats Their Judiciary Committee Circus

There is a growing debate over whether or not Mitch McConnell should discard the committee process on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee and simply take the vote to the floor of the Senate. Here’s why I support a middle ground position on that question.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no constitutional requirement for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on any nominee by the President. This is true of all positions, whether they be political appointees to run the federal bureaucracy or judicial appointees at the district, appellate and Supreme Court levels.

Here is the text of the Constitution’s Appointments Clause in its entirety:

“… and [the President] shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.”

Not a word in there about committees or hearings. The role of the Senate is to provide its “advice and consent,” on nominations, nothing more. That advice and consent can take any form that has the approval of a majority of current senators.

The committee process is nothing more than a construct of Senate rules and tradition. Democrats made clear they don’t give a damn about those things when Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer led the effort to end the filibuster for judicial nominees, a senate rule and tradition that had stood for well over a century. Schumer and other Democrat senators have also made clear that they plan to end the filibuster entirely the next time they gain a majority in that chamber.

So, to hell with Senate rules and traditions.

The nation’s voters have chosen to give the GOP a clear Senate majority in each of the last three election cycles, expanding that majority in 2018 after the despicable display the Democrats put on in the Judiciary Committee hearings related to Brett Kavanaugh. The corrupt news media studiously ignores the fact that each and every Democrat senator who participated in the smearing of Kavanaugh during those 2018 hearings and was up for re-election in a close race that year was defeated. It was the clearest statement of disapproval the voters could send of Democrat tactics – which included the active subornation of perjury by Christine Blasey Ford and others – that held the nation hostage for a week during those hearings.

Indeed, the Democrat conduct in Supreme Court nomination hearings has become increasingly depraved and demented related to every GOP presidential appointment since 1987, when Joe Biden – then chairman of the Judiciary Committee – led the dishonest smearing of Reagan nominee Robert Bork. Emboldened by that success, Biden-led Democrats conducted their “high-tech lynching” of Clarence Thomas in 1991, again including the active subornation of perjury by Anita Hill. Things have only gone downhill from that low moment.

If he has the votes to confirm the Trump nominee, why should Mitch McConnell allow the Democrats to put the nation and the nominee through what would certainly become another Kavanaugh-like smearing conducted by the likes of Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and Dianne Feinstein?

Some will contend that the cancellation of hearings would lead the Democrats to declare the nominee to be “illegitimate.” Well, hell, they did that with Kavanaugh. Who can forget Nancy Pelosi and Jabba the Nadler promising to impeach Kavanaugh after they obtained their House majority in 2018? We should not forget that kind of thing so quickly and easily.

Besides, Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Biden himself have already made it perfectly clear that they are going to smear the new Trump appointee as illegitimate regardless of the circumstances surrounding her confirmation. The tactic is going to be the tactic regardless of how the process is run.

With the announcements by Cory Gardner, Lamar Alexander and Rand Paul that they will support whatever confirmation process McConnell chooses to implement in the case of this nominee, it is now clear that the GOP has at least 50 votes to confirm the new justice before Election Day. Those votes, plus the tiebreaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence, are all McConnell needs to put this nominee on the Court.

So, why schedule committee hearings at all, given the short time frame and the pressing need to have a fully-constituted Supreme Court that could end up deciding the ultimate outcome of the presidential election?

Here’s why you schedule an initial hearing: To give the Democrats the chance to hoist themselves on their own petard. Democrats have all sorts of tools under Senate rules to try to delay the process. McConnell should work with Chairman Lindsey Graham to quickly schedule an initial hearing, and at the same time make it crystal clear that he will simply bring the nomination to the floor of the Senate if Democrats try to delay that process. Give them one chance to conduct themselves with the dignity that used to be expected from a U.S. senator, but give Graham the full authority to adjourn the process the moment the Democrats inevitably begin their effort to smear the nominee.

When that happens – and it would happen – McConnell should then immediately schedule a floor vote and deny the Democrats their circus.

Yes, the howls of outrage from the Democrats and their media toadies would be loud and fierce, but they are going to be loud and fierce regardless. This nomination and confirmation are an exercise in political power. For once, McConnell and his GOP caucus should exercise that power with no quarter given to their Democrat “friends.”

That is all.

Trump Should and Will Nominate a Replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Little Lindsey Graham has another problem on his hands. On October 3, 2018, Graham, in an appearance on C-Span, promised that “If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump’s term…we’ll wait to the next election” to hold hearings and confirm the nominee. Not until the next inauguration – the next election, which is November 3.

Graham, being the little compromised cock-of-the-walk that he is, then boldly told the C-Span host to “hold the tape,” which C-Span of course did. This tape is already being used by Democrats and their media toadies like Jonathan Karl as a hammer against Graham as the battle over the new opening on the U.S. Supreme Court heats up to what will certainly become civil war-threatening levels.

As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Graham will get to preside over the coming hearing related to the nominee President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) sends over to congress. Mitch McConnell – Graham’s boss in the Senate, and the guy who stupidly gave Graham this committee chairmanship – has already promised that the nominee will be considered and confirmed by the Senate:

“In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term. We kept our promise,” McConnell continued. “Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.”

McConnell added that “by contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary.”

“Once again, we will keep our promise,” he said. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

[End]

Note that, for McConnell’s rationale to be 100% certain to come about, the hearings and confirmation must take place before November 3. Because, should the President lose to Joe Biden, he would then become a “lame-duck” President, thus turning McConnell’s reasoning on its head.

That reasoning not only conflicts with Graham’s C-Span comment, it also conflicts with the statement issued in an interview earlier this week – before Ginsburg passed – by RINO Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, who said “I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee” before the November election had come and gone. “Fair is fair,” she added without any supporting evidence that her reasoning is in any way “fair” to the country.

Murkowski did not repeat that commitment in a statement she issued last night:

Image

So, obviously she is waiting to have a conversation with McConnell before going off half-cocked again.

The other most highly-suspect GOP RINO senator in this instance, Susan Collins, took the same approach as Murkowski, lauding Ginsburg in a statement but making no commitment one way or another on holding hearings and a vote before Election Day. Collins, it should be noted, is involved a close re-election campaign (Murkowski is not) and another strong performance in confirmation hearings – like she had with the Brett Kavanaugh nomination – would help her maximize GOP voter turnout.

The nominee will almost certainly be a woman, and Amy Coney Barrett seems to be the odds-on favorite. Others on the list include Joan Larsen of Michigan, who sits on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, Brett Grant, a 42 year-old rising star on the 11th Circuit who clerked for Justice Kavanaugh, and Allison Eid, who succeeded Justice Neil Gorsuch on the 10th Circuit Court. All are relatively young (Barrett and Larsen are 51, Eid is 55) and all have sterling records and backgrounds.

All, of course, would be mercilessly slandered and smeared by the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda.

For the country, Ginsburg’s death is just one more instance in which the year 2020 moves us inexorably closer to a real civil war, which the Democrats and their domestic terrorist tools in BLM and Antifa have been fomenting all summer. You should expect the rioting that magically came to a halt last Saturday after the Democrats saw their awful new polling data to start up again with renewed intensity as soon as President Trump announces his nominee.

My bet is that the Democrats will make sure that the renewed riots become so violent and destructive that the President will have no choice but to invoke the Insurrection Act prior to Election Day, which has been the Democrat plan all along.

As for Ginsburg, the nicest thing that can be said is that she was extremely tough: A 3-time cancer survivor who clung to her seat of political power for every last day she could wring out of it.

And make no mistake about it: She saw the Court and her seat on it as a political tool, nothing more. Ginsburg spent 27 long years politicizing every decision made by the Supreme Court, where she was a malevolent presence who utterly discarded the notion that the Court’s purpose was to interpret the Constitution, not to try to implement the personal feelings of the Justices themselves.

Ginsburg even managed to politicize her own death, telling an interviewer recently that “My Most Fervent Wish Is That I Not Be Replaced Until a New President Is Installed.”

Smarmy Democrats and corrupt reporters will play that up for all it’s worth. But this is hard ball politics and in that world you can, as my Daddy used to tell me, “wish in one hand and spit in the other and see which one fills up faster.”

President Trump should and will quickly nominate a replacement for Ginsburg, and the Senate should  confirm that nominee. Period.

That is all.

Two Years Late: Wray’s FBI Allows Senate Judiciary Committee to Interview Joe Pientka

Then-Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley first sought the FBI’s release to interview agent Joe Pientka way back in 2018, but worthless Director Christopher Wray had stonewalled that request for more than two years. This week, likely thanks to the intervention of Attorney General William Barr, the stone wall finally came down:

Pientka, of course, was one of two FBI agents – the other was Peter Strzok – who conducted the agency’s entrapment interview of General Mike Flynn on the orders of then-Director James Comey. Comey in turn was working on direct orders from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, and his vice president, Joe Biden.

What current Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham will do with Pientka’s testimony remains to be seen, of course. Graham’s motives are always suspect, especially so since he did literally nothing in this arena for 18 solid months prior to starting his hearing process in May of this year.

Graham’s action also pissed off staff for Senator Grassley, who wasn’t invited to the interview, and whose staffers were surprised by Herridge’s report and angry they were not included. From a report at the Washington Examiner:

“We weren’t aware that it was happening, and we learned about it after the fact,” the GOP aide said. “We weren’t in the room, we don’t know how long it lasted, and we don’t know what topics were covered. At the end of the day, we just want to make sure that the issues that we need clarity on were discussed in that interview. It would’ve been a lot easier if we were in the room.”

The aide added: “We know more about Pientka now than in 2018, and we probably have even more questions now about his role, given the broader understanding of what he was up to.”

[End]

Really bad form, Lindsey.

But then, when you’re trying to give the appearance of conducting a real investigation without really doing so, bad form is one of the most useful tools in your toolbox.

Graham is most likely trying to run out the clock until election day in hopes that Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden will win and make all of this inconvenient stuff go away. We have to remember that the fingerprints of Graham’s hero in life, John McCain, are all over Spygate and Obamagate, an inconvenient truth that Graham would rather not be the one to reveal.

So, he is slow-playing this plodding “investigation” in order to placate the voters back home, since he is up for re-election this year. But no one should expect the Senate Judiciary effort to bear any real fruit until Grassley re-assumes the chairmanship next January.

But hey, at least Graham can claim credit for finally, at long last, getting Joe Pientka on the record. It’s the very least he could do.

That is all.

Trump Brokers Middle East Peace Deal – Democrats, Media, Terrorists Hardest Hit

Trump brokers Middle East Peace Deal…. – Democrats and Palestinian Terrorists Hardest Hit.

This of course was the biggest story from Thursday. Where every U.S. president since Harry Truman has failed, Donald Trump and his much-derided son-in-law, Jared Kushner have succeeded. From a piece at the Jerusalem Post:

Israel and the UAE agreed to full normalization of relations in a phone call with US President Donald Trump on Thursday, marking the first peace treaty between Israel and an Arab country in 25 years.

Israel agreed to suspend its planned extension of sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria to facilitate relations with the UAE and potentially other Arab and Muslim countries.

The agreement will include establishing embassies and exchanging ambassadors, investments into the Israeli economy, trade, direct flights between Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi, an investment in Israeli efforts to develop a coronavirus vaccine – as first reported in The Jerusalem Post last month – and cooperation in matters of energy and water. An important element of the deal for the UAE is the expectation that its citizens would be able to visit the Al-Aksa mosque in Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the deal “full, formal peace” with “one of the strongest countries in the world.”

“Together we can bring a wonderful future. It is an incomparably exciting moment,” Netanyahu said. “I have the great privilege to make the third peace treaty between Israel and an Arab country, the UAE.”

[End]

The Palestinians who lob bombs into Israel on a daily basis and the anti-Semitic Democrat Party immediately erupted in outrage over the prospect of actual peace breaking out in the Middle East thanks in large part to the tireless efforts of Kusher and constant pushing by President Trump. Democrats – along with their war-mongering buddies in the #NeverTrump crowd of fake Republicans – simply cannot stand the thought of a peaceful Middle East, whose constant turmoil over the last 70 years has proven extremely lucrative for their personal bank accounts. The corrupt terrorists who run the Palestinian government, of course, depend on the constant upkeep of hostile relations between Israel and the rest of the Arab world for their very existence.

Imagine their outrage, then, when they read this next passage from the Jerusalem Post piece:

Netanyahu said he has “reason to be very optimistic that today’s announcement with the UAE will be joined by more countries in this expanding circle of peace.”

The agreement “ushers in a new era of peace between Israel and the Arab world,” he said.

[End]

Both Bahrain and Oman immediately endorsed the agreement between Israel and the UAE, and rumors abound that both countries will soon sign onto it as well. Egypt, which already has diplomatic relations in place with Israel – as does Saudi Arabia – also expressed its pleasure with the deal.

Naturally, Joe Biden’s despicable, elder-abusing handlers shoved their guy out of the basement in an absurd effort to try to take credit:

WILMINGTON, Delaware — Joe Biden is calling the agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates “a historic step to bridge the deep divides of the Middle East.”

The former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee issued a statement on Thursday, calling the agreement that the UAE publicly recognize Israel “a welcome, brave, and badly-needed act of statesmanship” and a “critical recognition that Israel is a vibrant, integral part of the Middle East that is here to stay.”

Biden also said that West Bank annexation by Israel “would be a body blow to the cause of peace, which is why I oppose it now and would oppose it as president” if he’s elected when the U.S. votes in November. He said that as president, he’d seek to foster a two-state solution in the Middle East.

Biden also said the accord shows “the role American democracy can play” and “builds on efforts of multiple administrations,” including President Barack Obama’s. But he did not mention the Trump White House by name.

Biden said he’d spent time with UAE leaders as vice president and “I am gratified by today’s announcement.”

[End]

For the record, the Obama Administration decimated the Middle East, involving U.S. forces in no fewer than 7 separate civil wars across that region and North Africa. Obama/Biden, with the help of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and other war-mongering RINOs, literally created and equipped ISIS in Syria, leading to the establishment of the Caliphate which ravaged vast swaths of that country and Iraq until Donald Trump ordered the U.S. military to destroy it.

Absolutely disgusting that Biden’s handlers now try to rewrite history, after viciously demonizing Kushner and attempting to undermine his efforts every step of the way for the past 3-1/2 years. These people are pretty much the lowest life form on the planet.

God bless Kushner and President Trump for never giving up on this effort.

Monday News Roundup: Portland Rioting Spreads to Seattle and Chicago and William Barr Slams the Left

Talk about a lack of self-awareness… – Watch below as Brian Stelter proves that he is in fact the single most clueless individual working in the corrupt news media today:

Obviously, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CBS, ABC and NBC have all existed for the last 5 years solely to tear down Donald Trump. Yes, they have been miserable failures in that pursuit, but the effort has been ubiquitous and undeniable.

If Brian Stelter did not already exist, no one in their right mind could ever dream of making him up.

This happened on Sunday… – Lindsey Graham appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo yesterday, waving around newly declassifed documents and claiming they show “new criminality” on the part of the FBI:

In rolling out these newly-declassified documents, Graham told Bartiromo that he had been trying to obtain them from the FBI “for two years,” and he thanked Attorney General William Barr for helping him bust them loose from the FBI’s grip. Notably, he did not also thank Christopher Wray.

Just as a reminder, the Director of the FBI for the last two years has not been James Comey, but the worthless apparatchik Mr. Wray. Sen. Graham said he was going to “write a letter” to Wray demanding he identify the person within the FBI who gave the Senate Intel Committee this utterly false briefing about the veracity of the Steele Dossier. Maybe he’ll get an answer sometime in 2022.

Maybe.

You should get ready for a very, very interesting week. – Yes, every week is “interesting” these days, but I’m guessing that this particular week is going to be more interesting than most. Obviously we will see a week-long conflict between the Trump Administration and congress over the President’s weekend executive orders, as well as lawsuits being filed against those orders by communist Democrat interests before friendly Obama judges.

But I think it’s going to get much more interesting than that. Here is one reason why: Attorney General William Barr appeared last night with Mark Levin on Fox News, and made his most inflammatory remarks yet about the communist Democrats and the political left in general.

Here are some quotes from a piece at Fox News:

“They’re not interested in compromise,” Barr told host Mark Levin. “They’re not interested in [a] dialectic exchange of views. They’re interested in total victory … It’s a substitute for religion.

“They view their political opponents as evil because we stand in the way of their progressive utopia that they’re trying to reach, and that’s what gives the intensity to the partisan feelings that people feel today, because for them, this pilgrimage we’re all on is a political pilgrimage. Everything is reduced to politics for people who don’t have that perspective.”

Barr theorized that the left “really represents a Rousseauian Revolutionary Party that believes in tearing down the system, that what’s wrong about America today all has to do with the institutions we have and we have to tear them down.”

“I said during my hearing: ‘Can any of you just come out and say it’s not OK to burn down federal courthouses?’ I mean, they talk about the rule of law. They talk about the importance of the federal legal system to protection of civil rights. Well, the heart of that is our court system. And they’re not willing, not one of them piped up to say, ‘No, it’s not OK to be burning down federal courts.'”

A few Democratic lawmakers, Barr suggested, “are true believers” who are “essentially revolutionary in their outlook” and “believe in tearing down the system.

“But many of them are just cowards   and are afraid from, you know, about a challenge from the left. So for them, it’s careerism.”

[End]

These are not the comments from an Attorney General who is interested in working cooperatively with Democrats in congress and outside of it. These are the comments of an Attorney General who is now on a war footing and is ready to take it to an enemy.

Glad to see it.

Welcome to the party, Pal. – Also of note is this series of tweets from GOP Sen. Ron Johson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Take a look:

Hey, does it seem to you as if Sen. Johnson might have finally woken up and realized that the true enemy to the United States of America is not some external threat like China or Russia, but the communist Democrat Party right here in the U.S.? Does it seem like maybe, just maybe, Sen. Johnson is finally ready to quit referring to seditious scumbags like Richard Blumenthal as his “friend” or “colleague”?

Because it sure seems that way to me.

This week is going to be very, very interesting.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The revolving door continues in Portland, as even the most violent Antifa/BLM Democrat sponsored rioters are arrested and then immediately released to go back on the streets thanks a huge fund providing pro bono legal support:

Ngo continues to blame all of this on Antifa, but note the BLM clenched fist on the sign that appears in this video:

Again, it is completely wrong to draw a distinction between Antifa and BLM. Both are Marxist, Soros-funded domestic terrorist groups that are sponsored by the Democrat Party. Both will ultimately have to be dealt with very violently or this chaos will only continue to grow.

In fact, it’s already escalating again. Emboldened by the fact that the communist Democrats in Oregon refuse to deal effectively with the Portland rioters, Ngo notes that fellow terrorists in Seattle and Chicago are ramping up the violence in those cities now:

None of this is really complicated, folks. We simply must as a society identify who and what these terrorists are with clear eyes and deal with them as we have dealt with radical Islamic terrorists for the last 20 years. If we don’t, then they will win. It really is that simple.

By the way, have you noticed that you have not heard a word about any Islamic terrorist activity in the U.S. since these Antifa/BLM riots got started? Ask yourself why that would be the case. The logical answer is kind of frightening.

That is all.

Sally Yates Testimony Proves America Needs a Durham Report After All

I and others have argued for the past year against any need for a “report” from John Durham at the completion of his investigation into SpyGate/ObamaGate, whatever you wish to call it. Mr. Durham is, after all, a federal prosecutor, and the job of a prosecutor is not to write reports like those we have seen from Inspector General Michael Horowitz since 2017, but to convene grand juries, obtain indictments, file charges, have the FBI make arrests and then obtain convictions.

The argument against the need for any voluminous report from Durham is that compiling such a thing would be a waste of time that would distract Durham and his staff from focusing on the central tasks at hand. After all, wouldn’t the indictments and trial speak for themselves, educating the public about the treasonous actions taken by high Obama officials? Isn’t that how our system of justice is supposed to function? I thought so, and so did many others.

But that was before we saw Sally Q. Yates, the corrupt Obama holdover former acting Attorney General who smeared General Mike Flynn and refused to enforce President Trump’s initial travel ban before the President unceremoniously fired her during the early weeks of his administration, testified today before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Yates’s testimony was such a case study in obfuscation, distraction, blame-shifting and outright fabrication – all of which will simply be parroted by a fawning news media – that it dawned on me today that the nation will indeed require a comprehensive report from Durham simply for the purpose of setting an official record and serving as a public guide for what is to come. Because otherwise, that official record will be dictated by the professional liars in the media and the political left.

Yates, for example, expressed her sincere disappointment that the FBI did not properly vet the Steele Dossier that became pretty much the sole basis for obtaining FISA warrants to allow the DOJ/FBI cabal to spy on the Trump Campaign and transition team. She threw then-FBI Director James Comey under the bus as being mainly responsible for this travesty, even though she personally signed two of what eventually became four FISA applications that used that false Dossier. She took no personal blame at all for simply rubber stamping what she was handed without asking probing questions or conducting the slightest due diligence.

During the same hearing today, Yates also claimed to have been personally unaware that the Steele Dossier had been paid for by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign, a preposterous notion that no thinking person really believes. She also claimed to have had no idea that her deputy, Bruce Ohr, spent months under her watch facilitating contacts between Christopher Steele and various officials inside the DOJ, the FBI and Congress. An even more preposterous notion.

Yates also hilariously claimed that George Papadopoulous was in fact an agent of the Russian government, a reprehensible allegation that has been proven false repeatedly by IG Horowitz and several other investigations. She also stated her steadfast belief that General Flynn lied to FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka during their entrapment interview, despite the now-revealed fact that both agents told their superiors that they did not believe Flynn had lied to them shortly after that interview took place.

The great intrinsic value in these Judiciary Committee hearings that are finally being convened by Chairman Lindsey Graham a year later than they should have been is that they will expose Yates and her fellow coup plotters for the despicable liars they all truly are, and do it all while they are under oath. That’s all great, but someone in a position of authority still needs to compile an official guide that ties together all the moving parts and exposes all the myriad lies these professional prevaricators will weave into their testimonies.

This is the most complex and dangerous scandal in U.S. history, and Americans deserve to have someone in authority lay it all out for them so that they can fully comprehend how dangerously close the Cabal came to overthrowing a duly-elected government by false means. Durham is presumably investigating all of this, and will know where all of these bodies are buried.

So yes, we will need a Durham Report after all, if only to serve as a sort of in-game program type of guide that will allow the audience to follow along as the indictments and trials [hopefully] finally start to take place.

Attorney General William Barr has twice promised we would see such a report before the end of summer. The summer ends on September 22.

Time is growing short.

That is all.

Gerrold Nadler Presided Over a Chilling, Dark Train Wreck of a Hearing With William Barr

“Disgrace” is not the only word to use to describe the behavior of Chairman Gerrold Nadler and his fellow Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee yesterday during their hearing with Attorney General William Barr, but it’s the most accurate. Other appropriate words to use to describe it would be despicable, depraved, demented, deluded, and, as Mark Levin hilariously said it, the most miserable collection of “assholes” ever to exist in the U.S. congress.

Any Republican who, after watching that proceeding, continues to refer to Democrat members of congress as “colleagues” or, as Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and all the other Senate RINOs love to say, “our friends on the other side of the aisle” needs to be defeated in their next re-election attempt. These are not your friends; they are not your colleagues, a word that demands some semblance of collegiality be present in order to be true. They are your enemies, and that is how they regard you.

Simply put, this hearing was delayed by the fact that Nadler supposedly was involved in a “car wreck” on his way to work in the morning (doubtful this is actually true), and he then presided over a massive train wreck for the rest of the day.

The U.S. system of government – the constitution, the separation of powers among three branches of the federal government, and the power sharing between the national government and the various states – is inextricably dependent upon two fundamental factors: 1) that the voters will by and large elect people of good will who love this country to become their representatives in the government; and 2) a spirit of collegiality and compromise between the major parties and factions that allow the government to get things done.

If it was not already obvious to you, then yesterday’s hearing should have shattered any doubt that Democrats have completely abandoned both of those fundamental foundations of the American Republic. After watching that spectacle of Democrat after Democrat after Democrat refusing to allow the witness to answer a question without childishly shouting “reclaiming my time” or rudely interrupting him when his answers made them look even more foolish, or even allowing the witness to take a 5 minute bathroom break after several hours of uninterrupted clown show, if you still believe that those Democrats are people of good will who love this country and have any interest in compromising their totalitarian aspirations in any way, shape or form, then you are a foolish person indeed.

John McCain, one of the most despicable RINO surrender monkeys to ever serve in the United States Congress, was fond of praising the level of “comity” that he maintained with his Democrat friends in the Senate. That was in fact McCain’s favorite word to toss out there whenever he was sucking up to Chris Matthews on MSNBC or Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

The definition of “comity” is “courtesy and considerate behavior towards others.” If McCain were alive today (has his funeral ended yet?) I would love to ask him at what point in yesterday’s hearing did he observe “comity” emitting from his “friends on the other side of the aisle?”

Yesterday was a complete abandonment by the Democrats of any further pretense of engaging in the normal functioning of the American government. It was a clear and unambiguous signal that they believe they are going to succeed in stealing the November elections and regain power, and when they do, they are going to punish anyone who has opposed them. At long last, Nancy Pelosi, one of the most evil women to ever occupy this planet, sees her end goals in sight and her minions are jumping the gun on taking her retribution.

If you are a thinking person who was shocked and disgusted by yesterday’s display, consider this: That was just one day. Under a Joe Biden presidency armed with majorities in both houses of congress and the filibuster rule having been repealed by the Democrat senate, this is what every day will look like in America. You will be under constant assault for 1,461 days. Think you will survive that? Think the country can?

These people hate you and would rather you were dead. If that is not clear to you after yesterday, then you cannot be convinced until it is too late to do anything about it.

The Pace of Obamagate Unraveling is Quickening

Is Peter Strzok Cooperating with John Durham? – Former Fox News reporter Adam Housley thinks so. Since leaving Fox, Housley has continued to stay in touch with his sources at the DOJ and within the Intelligence Community, and periodically reports interesting information on his Twitter feed.

He recently issued two tweets indicating he has been told that FBI Super-Duper Agent and aspiring latin lover Peter Strzok is now cooperating with Durham and his investigators:

To reinforce the point I made yesterday about Durham’s job in unraveling the treasonous activity that took place in the Obama FBI/DOJ/CIA being incredibly complex, I’d also point you to this recent tweet from Housley:

And this one…

Meanwhile, on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” program hosted by Maria Bartiromo, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham told Bartiromo that the FBI “lied their asses off” about the reliability of the Steele Dossier, and that he will be releasing more proof about that before the end of this week: “Here is what I think I’m going to be able to show to the public. Not only did the FBI lie to the court about the reliability about the Steele dossier, they also lied to the Congress. That’s a separate crime.”

Obviously, everything Graham says has to be taken with a grain of salt. But it is worth pointing out that, on the same program Sunday before last, Graham told Bartiromo that his committee had uncovered proof that Steele’s sub-source was a complete fraud. Of course, Director of National Intelligence John Raticliffe – who is proving to be every bit the bulldog in that job that his predecessor, Ric Grenell was – released some previously-classified documents last week demonstrating Graham’s point, and is apparently planning to release more documents this week.

This is all unraveling now, folks, and the pace is quickening. As I’ve chronicled here over the last year, all of the information conclusively proving the treasonous actions of the coup cabal within the FBI/DOJ led by James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Strzok is now out on the public record. Everyone who has been paying attention and has the ability to reason logically now understands the monumental nature of the crimes committed against our very system of government by these despicable coup plotters, and that the organizing momentum behind it went all the way up to the Oval Office itself.

Today’s testimony by Attorney General William Barr before the disgraceful House Judiciary Committee may well be designed to serve as the kicking-off point for more concrete action coming from the Durham investigation. I know many readers remain skeptical of my faith in Barr and Durham, but I would urge you to pay attention to what Barr is going to tell Nadler and company this morning in his opening statement.

In that statement, Barr points to the fact that he had no prior relationship with President Trump when he agreed to take the AG job. In fact, he was 70 years old and sliding towards a well-earned and deserved retirement after a lifetime of legal practice and service to the country. Instead, he agreed to take on the most pressure-packed assignment in the nation outside of the presidency itself.

Many skeptical readers continue to believe that Barr willingly took on that assignment and all of the character assassination and threats he knew would be coming his way from desperate Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media so that he could get into the job and do….nothing.

I don’t believe that’s why he took that job, and I believe events of the next month or so will prove that assessment to be correct.

We’ll see.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Graham Blows More Smoke, Churches are Burning and Selling Puerto Rico

Little Lindsey’s gonna issue another subpoena. – Not that anything is likely to ever come of it, but Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted this on Sunday:

Graham’s latest bit of Kabuki Theater came after the former Special Counsel had an op-ed about the Roger Stone case published in the Washington Post under his name. No one knows who actually wrote op-ed for Mr. Mueller, but obviously someone did since he clearly demonstrated during his House testimony last year that he is barely able to put two sentences together without reading from a prepared text.

In any event, Mueller won’t be shaking in his house slippers at the prospect of getting a subpoena from Senator All-Hat-And-No-Cattle. Graham talks a good came from time to time – mainly during appearances on Fox News with Captain Tick Tock, Sean Hannity – but his follow-through leaves a lot to be desired. In fact, it’s pretty much nonexistent.

Two weeks ago, I told you that the next step by the BLM/Antifa domestic terrorists would be to come after your churches. – This weekend, we saw this:

– The Faith Tabernacle Pentecostal Church in Elkmont, Alabama was burned Friday night.

– On Saturday, an attacker drove his car into a church in Ocala, Florida and released an incendiary device to set it on fire while worshipers were inside.

– Saturday night, the 249-Year-Old San Gabriel Mission Church in California almost burned to the ground due to a suspiciously-set fire.

These burnings follow a wave of incidents over the past few weeks in which BLM thugs have invaded churches around the country to disrupt their services and attempt to goad parishioners into fights.

They’re coming for your churches. Make sure your own church employs appropriate security measures.

Speaking of suspicious fires… – The Naval landing vessel Bonhomme Richard was the scene of a mysterious explosion and fire on Sunday in San Diego, where it is docked:

Witnesses reported a loud explosion followed by a huge fire that broke out in several different areas of the 800 foot-long ship. As of this morning, it is a mystery what could have caused such a huge explosion and fire on a ship that typically does not carry significant explosive ordinance.

From a report at the Navy Times:

While the precise cause remained unknown Sunday night, [Rear Admiral Philip] Sobeck said there was “nothing toxic” in the ship, and that the black smoke billowing from the amphib all day was caused by office and berthing items burning.

The fire is believed to have started below those spaces, in the lower cargo hold of the ship, known as the “Deep V,” Sobeck said.

It is a “huge open area where you store a lot of (Marine Corps) equipment and everything else,” he said. “That’s where we believe it was started.”

Bonhomme Richard had 1 million gallons of fuel onboard but it is “well below where any heat source is,” Sobeck said.

Sobeck noted that some sort of internal explosion had occurred earlier in the day aboard the ship, but said that “what we cannot ascertain is what that explosion was caused from.”

[End]

Oh. Given the highly suspicious nature of this incident, you can be sure that you will hear little if anything more about it from the corrupt news media.

Great idea! But what idiot would buy it? – The New York Times has a story this morning alleging that President Trump considered the potential sale of U.S. territory Puerto Rico as its Marxist leaders attempted to shake down the federal government in the wake of Hurricane Maria:

From a report at The Hill:

President Trump mulled selling Puerto Rico as the territory struggled in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in 2017, former acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke told The New York Times.

Duke, who served in the role for four months, told the Times on Friday that she was shocked when the president raised the suggestion of “divesting” or “selling” Puerto Rico.

“The president’s initial ideas were more of as a businessman, you know,” she said. “Can we outsource the electricity? Can we … sell the island? You know, or divest of that asset?”

The newspaper noted that Duke said the idea of selling of Puerto Rico was “never seriously considered or discussed” after Trump proposed it.

[End]

Ok, so, this person was “shocked” when the President, in a brainstorming meeting, momentarily raised the possibility of divesting the U.S. from the constant, incessant Marxist money pit that is Puerto Rico. This is supposed to be a major scandal. And of course, if you are an economic ignoramus working for the New York Time or The Hill, you no doubt believe that to be the case.

But Trump has the mind of a businessman, not a corrupt politician or corrupt fake journalist, and the purpose of a brainstorming session in a crisis is to – guess what? – consider all possible plans of action. Given the chronically, utterly corrupt nature of that island’s government, why in the hell wouldn’t a sane U.S. Administration consider selling the damn thing to the highest bidder?

The divesting of a corrupt, constant money drain on the nation that has no true intrinsic value to the country as a whole would in fact be the intelligent thing to do from a business standpoint. But what nitwit would buy the place for any amount of money that would make a deal worth doing?  Venezuela or Cuba, whose socialist governments are equally corrupt and simpatico to Puerto Rico’s, might be interested; but hey, those countries are flat, dead broke.

Thus, the idea, as good and merited as it was, was quickly discarded, as the Times admits.

Just another fake news hit piece from the most corrupt newspaper on earth.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Tulsa Rally, Chop Murder, Barr-Berman Battle and Bad Lindsey Graham

Happy Father’s Day, y’all! – It wasn’t an entirely happy Father’s Day eve for President Donald Trump in Tulsa yesterday.  After all of the buildup and the hype about have a million requests for tickets, it appeared that no more than 15-20,000 people congregated in downtown Tulsa on Saturday, with only about 10,000 able to ultimately make their way into the BOK Center by 7:00 ET, when the doors were closed as the event began.

The massive COVID-19 fear porn campaign mounted by the corrupt news media obviously had its intended effect to diminish the turnout. Once the entries to the area opened, the combination of having to test everyone’s temperature and screen them through security, along with a group of Antifa/BLM thugs who forced the closing of one of the entry points, made the process too slow to get everyone inside to fill the arena.

None of that impacted the President’s mood once he took the stage, though. He was as animated as ever, and held the crowd’s rapt attention for 2 solid hours, like Paul McCartney does on is concert tours. But the media reports won’t focus on that – they’ll focus exclusively on the turnout, because that is what they do.

And they certainly will never show you this photo of the campaign “rally” held by Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden earlier on Saturday:

Seriously, he’s better off in the basement.

One more note about Tulsa. – The city and state governments, led by Republicans, did their jobs of keeping their streets peaceful and safe both for the attendees and for the public at-large. It was a stark contrast to the refusal of Democrat mayors and governors to do their respective duties in places like Minneapolis, New York, Portland, Atlanta and Chicago in recent weeks.

That of course is another aspect of Saturday’s events you will not see any corrupt news outlet report on today.

In other news… – In one of many interesting parts of the President’s speech, he talked about Seattle’s CHOP, or as the town’s nitwit Mayor calls it, “The Summer of Love.” That lovefest produced a murder Friday night in which one person was shot and killed and another lies in critical condition in a local hospital. When police attempted to enter the “cop-free zone” to investigate, they were met with a roadblock of violent thugs.

Sara Jean Green | The Seattle Times

In his speech, the President said that he has repeatedly offered to bring in the National Guard and clear the place out, but the leftist mayor has refused to do anything. From a report at Breitbart:

“I have an offer out. I said any time you want, we will come in and straighten it out in one hour or less,” Trump said at his rally.

“Now I may be wrong, but it’s probably better for us to just watch that disaster. Let it simmer for a while. Let them see what radical left Democrats will do to our country.”

[End]

From a strategic political standpoint, that’s probably right. But from the standpoint of ensuring that all Americans – including those Americans who live and own businesses inside the CHOP – have their constitutional rights protected, it is not.

When they are sworn into office, elected members of city and state governments swear they will do their duty to ensure those rights are protected. The city and state governments in Seattle and Washington have abandoned that duty. While the system of federalism obligates the President to afford those lower officials every opportunity to do their jobs, at some point he has a similar obligation to act.

In addition to the illegal seizure of property, we’ve already had one murder and reports by the Seattle Chief of Police of multiple rapes and assaults taking place in the “Summer of Love.” The President will have to decide how much more of this lawlessness he is willing to tolerate before taking action, because it is obvious that the local government and Governor Jay Inslee just don’t give a damn.

“I won’t quit! Wait, you’re firing me? You can’t fire me! I quit!” – That was pretty much exactly how Saturday went for now ex-SDNY U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman. As reported here on Saturday morning, Berman refused his opportunity to resign gracefully after it was offered to him by Attorney General William Barr Friday afternoon.

Early Saturday afternoon, Barr sent Berman a letter that said, in effect, ok, then, you’re fired effective immediately. Hilariously, realizing that he is in fact screwed to the wall here, Berman then responded with this:

So, having forfeited his only graceful means of exit, Berman resorts to just making one up.  Either way, he’s gone and that’s a very good thing for America.

Bad Lindsey Graham to the rescue! – For the Democrats, that is. After Berman’s firing was announced and Barr made clear that the President intends to nominate Jay Clayton, the current chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, to replace him, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, quickly stepped in to provide a roadblock of his own.

It is very telling that Graham’s very first reaction to all of this is to announce that he will stand on archaic Senate procedure to obstruct Clayton’s nomination. Graham falsely stated that he has always respected the Senate’s “blue-slip” tradition in such nominations, in which home state senators must signal their approval before any nominee can move forward. Thus, he in effect provides New York Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand with veto power over Clayton’s nomination.

Graham has in fact completely ignored objections by home-state senators in the cases of multiple federal judge nominees over the past 18 months. Further, Democrats have ignored this “tradition” en masse when both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama moved to willy-nilly fire almost every incumbent U.S. Attorney they inherited and replace them all. Graham was actually in the Senate when that happened in 2009 and was completely submissive to it.

But now that a Republican President wants to replace a single corrupt U.S. attorney, Bad Lindsey Graham decides he simply must stand on stupid, non-productive Senate ceremony. Because of course he does.

As Tucker Carlson tells you almost every night of the week on his show, the GOP caucus in the congress is little more than a collection of useless gas bags, and Senator Graham may well be the worst of the entire lot.

The Evening Wrap: A Fake HCQ Study, New Religious Cults, and Ben Sasse Throws a Tantrum *UPDATED*

Hey, remember that Lancet study from a few weeks ago that claimed to show that Hydroxychloroquine was somehow deadly to Wuhan Virus patients? – Yeah, the study was a scam:

It turns out that the company that provided the “data” for the study doesn’t even exist, and that the report that Lancet – a “respected” medical journal – published was actually authored by a science fiction writer. I’m not kidding. Not even the greatest science fiction writer who ever lived could possibly make this stuff up.

It was all just another leftist scam to “get” Donald Trump.  The sad part of it is that people most likely died as a result of the chilling effect it had on doctors being willing to prescribe this safe, cheap and widely-used drug for patients it could have benefited. Despicable.

This is what a religious cult looks like:

Just sayin’.

Speaking of stuff you could never make up… – A couple of friends who are on a trip in Alaska right now sent me this photo today:

This is posted on a miles-long hiking trail that most likely doesn’t have 50 people on it today. There is literally not one shred of science or data that supports the notion that staying 6 feet from people in the wilds of Alaska makes even the tiniest difference, yet there it is.

This is also stuff that a religious cult adhering to nothing but dogma would do.

Burying the lede… – Ned Ryun was angry to see the news that Lindsey Graham had postponed today’s scheduled subpoena vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee after Nebraska RINO Ben Sasse threw a typical hissy fit:

However, if you go actually read that article by The Hill, you find this lede conveniently buried way down in the final two paragraphs:

Earlier Thursday, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held its own vote to give subpoena power to Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) for that panel’s investigation into Obama-era actions including Crossfire Hurricane.

The vote allows Johnson to subpoena Comey, Rice and former CIA Director John Brennan, among others.

Oh.

See, it’s not all up to Senator Graham. This can all just as easily be exposed by the Homeland Security Committee, whose Chairman is a far more serious person and not nearly so obviously compromised.

***UPDATE*** – James Rosen is reporting now that Senate Judiciary met later this afternoon and voted along party lines to authorize Graham to issue the subpoenas:

Fun!

***UPDATE 2*** The normally astute Mr. Rosen was wrong. Sorry about that.

What, is the New York Times running itself as a day-care center now? – After all of his corrupt reporters tossed a mass meltdown on Twitter last night and his editors staged an open rebellion over the publication of an op/ed by Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, New York Times Publisher A.G. Sulzberger felt the need to explain the basics of newspaper publishing to his herd of juvenile delinquents:

The op-ed page exists to offer views from across the spectrum, with a special focus on those that challenge the positions taken by our Editorial Board. We see that as a source of strength, allowing us to provide readers with a diversity of perspectives that is all too rare in modern media. We don’t publish just any argument — they need to be accurate, good faith explorations of the issues of the day — and there are many reasons why Op-Eds are denied publication. It is clear many believe this piece fell outside the realm of acceptability, representing dangerous commentary in an explosive moment that should not have found a home in The Times, even as a counterpoint to our own institutional view. I believe in the principle of openness to a range of opinions, even those we may disagree with, and this piece was published in that spirit. But it’s essential that we listen and to reflect on the concerns we’re hearing, as we would with any piece that is the subject of significant criticism.

[End]

Absolutely stunning that a newspaper publisher has to write something like this to a pack of people who presumably graduated from something called “journalism school.” And we wonder why journalism – real journalism – has become an anachronism in our country.

Speaking of the corrupt news media… – Remember how every fake media outlet in the nation went berserk over this video clip a couple of weeks ago, with many squealing that these people were all gonna get the Wuhan Virus and spread it all over the country?

There have been no new cases of the novel coronavirus among the hundreds who flouted social distancing guidelines and attended pool parties at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks over Memorial Day weekend, a state health official said this week.

Videos and photos that showed hundreds of partygoers prompted health officials in the state to express concerns that the large gatherings would lead to a surge in cases of COVID-19. Those who attended were urged to self-quarantine and get tested, while officials in St. Louis County — Lake of the Ozarks is a popular getaway for people who live in St. Louis — later issued a travel advisory.

Overall, the statewide hospitalizations from the virus have decreased by more than 40 percent in recent weeks, while the state’s number of positive cases has also declined, Parson said during the briefing, per the newspaper.

“Our hospitals are not overwhelmed. Our positivity rate continues to decline. People are recovering, and we are moving forward,” he said.

[End]

Oh.

One final reminder. – In 2009 and 2010, Americans put in office a Black president, a black attorney general, Joe Biden as VP, and Democrats had super majorities in both houses of congress. During those years, and the six years that followed, there was no criminal justice reform; there was no prison reform; there was no police reform or any other effort to correct racial injustice.

What did they focus on instead? Nationalized healthcare and climate change.

Because they’re all Democrats, and they don’t mean a damn thing they’re saying today.

The Evening Wrap: Rosenstein Tosses McCabe Under the Bus, and Other WINNING News

So many items of WINNING news today it’s hard to know where to start.

How about this: The ADP private sector jobs report for May is in, and although it’s a big negative number, it’s still positive news in the context of this whole self-imposed Wuhan Virus recession. The ADP number for May came in at a net jobs loss of 2.76 million, which is obviously a depressing number. But – and it’s a big BUT – the consensus of projections by the so-called experts in this field had predicted a loss of 8.663 million jobs, almost 6 million more than the actual number.

What this means is pretty clear:

– Many workers who had lost jobs over the last 10 weeks and filed initial claims for unemployment quickly found new jobs;

– Businesses are reopening faster than the “experts” have anticipated despite the efforts by an array of Democrat governors to prevent that from happening in states like Michigan, New York, California, Oregon, New Jersey and Nevada;

– The reduction in economic growth has obviously not been as deep and severe as most have estimated.

That’s why we have this next bit of WINNING news: The Dow Jones Industrial Average rocketed up above 26,000 today, just 5 trading days after it topped 25,000 last Wednesday, and just 9 weeks after it bottomed out at 18,591. That is a rise of ~40% in a little over 2 months.

At the same time, the NASDAQ hit 9,681 today, and is now within just 70 points of regaining every bit of the losses it suffered in March. Given that the stock markets tend to reflect where investors believe the economy will be 3 to 6 months from now, that represents a stunning vote of confidence in the U.S. economy.

Obviously, the investor class in our country has just as little faith in the economic “expert” class as you and I do.

Oh, hey, then there’s this: You may be wondering why all the rioting across the country suddenly got dialed back last night. President Trump is saying that it’s because some mayors – like Eric Garcetti in Los Angeles – called in the National Guard, and that likely has a lot of merit. But other depraved Democrats like Bill de Blasio and Lori Lightfoot in Chicago did not do that, yet saw a dramatic decrease in violence and mayhem in their cities, too.

Here’s why I believe that happened: The Democrats – and thus, Antifa and Black Lives Matter – got hold of bad polling data, which meant all the bad out-of-state actors were ordered to go home. Remember, every decision the Democrats make is based on polling data.

The bad data on the riots came to them in the form of a new poll from the very liberal Morning Consult polling group, which finds that Americans favor using the National Guard and the U.S. military to put down these riots by a frankly amazing 58%-30% margin. The move is even favored by Democrat voters by a 48-43 margin.

In another bit of bad polling data (for Democrats), the Rasmussen survey shows that a large plurality of Americans consider Antifa to be a terrorist organization. 49% of respondents answered yes, while just 30% said no.

If you don’t think that data caused a ton of Democrat heads to explode, then you don’t understand how Democrats think and operate.

Uhhhh, who to believe – Rod Rosenstein? Or Andrew McCabe? – It’s a very tough choice, but that is what America faces today following an interesting Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in which the oily, rodent-like former Acting Attorney General offered his sniffing and slurping testimony. In this instance, I would tend to believe Rosenstein, if only for the fact that being slightly more believable than the pathological liar McCabe is such a low damn bar.

As we pointed out yesterday, Rosenstein has much to answer for related to his gross misconduct in office during the active coup d’etat effort which he personally facilitated from May 2017 through March 2019. Sadly, the stilted format of these hearings and uselessness of so many of the GOP senators meant that he only had to answer for a few of those things today.

The main focus of the few Republicans who really went after Rosenstein today – Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and Chuck Grassley – was why Rosenstein signed off on the 4th fraudulent FISA warrant and appointed Robert Mueller shortly after he had assumed the office of Deputy Attorney General. Rosenstein’s wormy answer basically amounted to, “hey, I was just going on the information provided to me by Andy McCabe and his evil team, which included Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.”

Remember, at a press conference two years ago, Rosenstein went on and on about the fact that “In order to get a FISA warrant, you need an affidavit signed by a career law enforcement officer who swears the information is true… And if it is wrong, that person is going to face consequences.”

Remember that? I do, and today Rosenstein outright admitted his signing off on that FISA warrant based solely on the word of a pathological liar and his demonic staff was, well, wrong. But of course, he then added that, hey, he was just the new guy at DOJ and couldn’t be expected to try to verify any of the BS he was being fed by McCabe and Strzok and Page.

Naturally, McCabe was watching the proceedings at home – or maybe at CNN headquarters, where he remains employed as a richly-paid on-screen liar, er, “contributor” – and he issued a statement defending himself as the hearing was progressing, as reported by JustTheNews.com:

In a statement apparently authored shortly after Rosenstein made that assertion, McCabe said that Rosenstein’s “claims to have been misled by me or anyone from the F.B.I.” were “completely false.”

“I briefed Mr. Rosenstein on Jim Comey’s memos describing his interactions with the president days after Mr. Rosenstein wrote the memo firing Jim Comey,” McCabe said, in a statement read by committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.

Rosenstein’s remarks “loo[k] to be another sad attempt by the president and his men to rewrite the history of their actions in 2017,” McCabe said. “They have found in Mr. Rosenstein, then and now, a willing accessory in that effort.”

[End]

Hilariously, Lindsey Graham closed the hearing out by reading McCabe’s statement and allowing Rosenstein to give one more worm-like answer:

“I did not say that Mr. McCabe misled me,” he said. “Those were not my words. I think he is responding to somebody’s question.”

“What I said was, he did not reveal the Comey memos to me for a week. And that is true. He revealed them to me only a couple of hours before they showed up in the New York Times, and he did not reveal to me that he was having internal deliberations with his team about whether to target high-profile people for investigation.”

[End]

Here’s reality: Rosenstein admitted under oath today that he had zero basis for signing that FISA warrant; zero basis for believing anyone in the Trump Campaign or Transition team was colluding with the Russians; and thus, zero basis for appointing a special counsel. He admitted that he basically didn’t know nuthin’ about nuthin’ and just allowed himself to be strung along by the coup cabal made up of Obama holdovers at the DOJ and FBI.

Absolutely sickening.

Tomorrow, expect the GOP majority to vote unanimously to issue subpoenas to more than 50 Obama loyalists who tried to fix the 2016 election and then overthrow a duly-elected POTUS.

This is actually gonna be fun to watch.

I leave you with this absolutely epic clip of Senator Ted Cruz destroying Rosenstein, Barack Obama, Susan Rice and Joe Biden at today’s hearing:

Rod Rosenstein Has Much to Answer For, if Only the Senators Will Demand he do so

The Afternoon Campaign Update

Rod Rosenstein will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow in Lindsey Graham’s first Obamagate-related hearing since he assumed the chairmanship in January 2019. Supposedly, the committee will then reconvene on Thursday to vote to subpoena a long list of the major players in the whole Russia Collusion hoax that morphed into a soft coup d’etat under the guise of the Mueller Investigation.

Who was the guy responsible for creating the Gestapo/KGB-style Mueller Investigation? Why, Mr. Rosenstein, of course, which, combined with the fact that he also personally signed one of the fraudulently-compiled applications for FISA warrants presumably explains why Graham chose him as the witness to kick off the committee’s festivities. But those are far from the only items of interest we know about Rosenstein’s role in the four-year Obamagate hoax.

Here are some others:

  • We know Rosenstein had a long series of contacts with Robert Mueller in the two weeks leading up to Mueller’s appointment as Special Counsel – what were those about?
  • We know that Rosenstein actually recommended that President Trump appoint Mueller to be his FBI Director after he had fired James Comey.
  • We know Rosenstein actually set up an interview for Mueller for that position with the President himself, and on the very next day appointed Mueller to be the Special Counsel. He should be forced by GOP committee members to explain that timing of events, and why he thought that Mueller of all people would be the right person to lead the Trump FBI.
  • We have very solid indications that Rosenstein, in a meeting with Andrew McCabe and other FBI/DOJ coup cabal participants, offered to wear a wire to record his conversations with the President of the United States.
  • We know that Rosenstein wrote two additional authorization memos extending Mueller’s scope in the months following his appointment, but have not seen the full text of those memos.
  • We know that, because Jeff Sessions was recused, Rosenstein personally had oversight over the entire Mueller enterprise and the rampant abuses and Gestapo-style tactics it used to deprive U.S. citizens of their rights and freedoms. In a span of two solid years, Rosenstein never exercised his authority to rein in the out-of-control special counsel operation.
  • We know that Rosenstein coordinated with then-Washington office U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu to cover up the crimes committed by James Wolfe, the counsel for the Senate Intel Committee who traded national secrets for sex with a New York Times reporter less than half his age.
  • We know that Rosenstein coordinated multiple times with the corrupt U.S. attorneys framing General Mike Flynn to withhold exculpatory documents from Flynn’s defense team.
  • We know that Rosenstein stood before the assembled national press and announced Mueller’s sham indictments of Concorde Management, a Russian firm, knowing full well those indictments had zero substance behind them and were purely for show.

This is all stuff I can think of just off the top of my head – there is no doubt much, much more fertile ground to be plowed in tomorrow’s hearing with Rosenstein if Graham and his fellow GOP committee members are willing to do so.

Certainly, if this hearing were being held before the completely corrupted, RINO-filled Senate Intel Committee, we could only rely on Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton to ask anything resembling tough questions of Rosenstein. But here’s the thing about the Judiciary Committee: There are half a dozen Republican members who can be counted on to really take it to this witness.

Those senators include:

  • Texas Senator Ted Cruz;
  • Missouri Senator Josh Hawley;
  • Crusty old Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley;
  • Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn;
  • Louisiana Senator John Kennedy; and
  • Senator Graham himself, who, despite his interminable delaying tactics, can be counted on to put on a good show in front of the TV cameras.

The rest of the Republicans – Senators Mike Lee (UT), John Cornyn (TX), Joni Ernst (IA), Mike Crapo (ID), Ben Sasse (NE), and Thom Tillis (NC) will likely be useless. And of course, the Democrat members can be counted on to obfuscate and resort to their usual subject-shifting histrionics. Because they aren’t serious people, and that’s what they do.

Rosenstein is a clever and skilled lawyer, so no one should expect any slip-ups or big new revelations to escape his thin lips. But he will be testifying under oath, and the six senators listed above will make sure that this hearing will not be easy for him.

He has much to answer for.

That is all.

Lindsey Graham to the Rescue? Don’t Count on it.

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Ok. Now do Stacey Abrams. – In an interview on CNN last night, doddering, often drunk House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – whose eyebrows rise further up her massive forehead with each passing congressional recess – referred to President Donald Trump as being “morbidly obese.” First Lady Melania Trump thinks of the President more as being “pleasingly plump.”

You can’t win at this game, Madam Speaker. Neither can Ms. Abrams.

Is Senator Lindsey Graham actually about to hold an Obamagate hearing? – Don’t bet the farm on it yet, but yesterday the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee did at least schedule a hearing to debate whether or not to issue subpoenas to potential witnesses.

Of course, Graham set the agenda for his May 21 hearing in such a way to ensure that at least two more weeks would go by before the committee votes on the question. At that June 4 hearing, assuming the Republicans on the committee hold together (not a safe assumption in the RINO-filled Senate) to approve the question, you can be sure that many more weeks would then pass before Graham actually schedules additional hearing to begin questioning the witnesses.

From the Committee notice, here is the list of possible witnesses Graham will propose to subpoena to testify:

Trisha Anderson, Brian Auten, James Baker, William Barr, Dana Boente, Jennifer Boone, John Brennan, James Clapper, Kevin Clinesmith, James Comey, Patrick Conlon, Michael Dempsey, Stuart Evans, Tashina Gauhar, Carl Ghattas, Curtis Heide, Kathleen Kavalec, David Laufman, Stephen Laycock, Jacob Lew, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Mary McCord, Denis McDonough, Arthur McGlynn, Jonathan Moffa, Sally Moyer, Mike Neufield, Sean Newell, Victoria Nuland, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Stephanie L. O’Sullivan, Lisa Page, Joseph Pientka, John Podesta, Samantha Power, E.W. “Bill” Priestap, Sarah Raskin, Steve Ricchetti, Susan Rice, Rod Rosenstein, Gabriel Sanz-Rexach, Nathan Sheets, Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, Glenn Simpson, Steve Somma, Peter Strzok, Michael Sussman, Adam Szubin, Jonathan Winer, Christopher Wray, and Sally Yates.

Graham is at least pretend-focused on the FBI’s code-named “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation that began in July 2016, and which led to the illegal spying operations on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and even into the Trump Administration. That spying was conducted under the aegis of four successive FISA warrants which the FBI fraudulently obtained based on the Steel Dossier.

If you think I’m being overly harsh on Sen. Graham, keep in mind that the South Carolina Senator has held the Judiciary Chairman’s seat since January 2019. Since well before that time, there has been plenty of information in the public domain to justify issuing these subpoenas and convening hearings on the matter. Yet, Graham has spent the last 17 months promising to hold such hearings on various Fox News programs, and then contriving excuses why he just couldn’t do so at that time.

It has been obvious for months now that his real plan was to get all the way through the end of this year – after which the Chair will go back to Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley – without having done a damn thing. But something or someone has obviously finally prodded Graham into at least taking this tentative first step.

When you look at how this process will likely play out, even if the Committee votes to move forward, it is highly unlikely to issue any findings until well into 2021, at the earliest. Think about it:

– The conducting of hearings with this many witnesses would consume weeks of time, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is not going to allow this committee to shift all of its focus away from its core responsibility of confirming Trump-nominated judges and administration officials;

– Under normal circumstances, the Senate would only be in session for about a third of the 190 or so days remaining between now and the end of the year. Ongoing issues related to the Wuhan Virus will dictate that it is in session for substantially fewer days than that.

– That means, under optimal conditions, the committee might – might – be able to finish taking testimony by Election Day, November 3.

– After that, you’re going to consume probably another 3 months just dealing with Democrat delaying tactics, not to mention lawsuits filed by the Democrats’ Lawfare army.

– Then, it’s going to take another 3 to 6 months to get a final report written.

Add that all up, and even if the minimum time frames mentioned above are consumed, you are all the way into May/June of next year.

Oh, and in case you’re thinking that, hey, at least Graham will be able to chastise these corrupt people in public hearings in the meantime, think again. It’s a very safe bet that Graham and his fellow RINOs will quickly agree to Democrat demands to hold the hearings during which testimony is taken behind closed doors.

Thus, Senator Graham will have accomplished his obvious goal of doing nothing to advance the cause of justice through his committee for his entire two year term as its chairman.

This is the DC Swamp at its worst.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump, Graham, WHO, Flynn 302, and Alien Hybrids

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Some Trump supporters are up in arms today about the news that President Trump is going to “restore” U.S. funding for the corrupt and ineffective WHO. But they are missing the part where Trump says the U.S. will only match funding provided by China. Given that China’s contribution to the WHO is about 10% of what the U.S. contributed last year, this means that the President just committed to a 90% reduction in U.S. funding. Pay attention to the details, folks.

Speaking of the WHO… – Bad Lindsey Graham keeps rearing his ugly head. On Friday he told reporters that he would “double funding” for the WHO if Bill Gates was in charge of it. Gates, of course, is a completely committed globalist who has spent the last 15 years pushing for a global government. This is the kind of human ghoul who Lindsey really admires.

Original Flynn 302? What original Flynn 302? – The folks at The Conservative Treehouse have another great piece detailing new information showing that the original FBI 302 report from the entrapment interview of General Mike Flynn is missing, and that Sally Yates and James Comey both played a role in making it disappear. Go read it – you’ll be smarter for doing so.

Nick Searcy at RedState.com has an outstanding piece up today detailing how the global political left has finally achieved its goal of ruining the entire world. The piece includes this outstanding passage about the utter futility of widespread testing:

They will never let the old America come back if they can help it. They want it dead and gone, and always have. And in the Chinese Virus, or COVID19 or the Moo Shu Achoo or Lung Pao Sicken or whatever “racist” name you want to give it, they have stumbled upon the perfect weapon — because it can never be solved.

You may have it and not have any symptoms — but you may spread this thing with no symptoms to someone else who also may not have symptoms, so you have to stay home. But if someone else gets it and has symptoms, then you are a murderer, so you have to stay home. In order for you to be sure you don’t have it, YOU HAVE TO BE TESTED — but then, even if you test negative for the virus, YOU MIGHT GET IT 30 SECONDS AFTER THE TEST, so you have to stay home. And we can’t ever go back to normal until every single human being in America is tested — but even then, we can’t be sure, so you have to stay home.

[End]

The folks at The Right Scoop have a great write-up about the growing, coordinated effort by the Biden Campaign and the corrupt news media to smear CBS News Reporter Catherine Herridge. Her crime? Engaging in truthful and accurate reporting at one of the left’s long-time pet corrupt news outlets. It’s the same crime that got great reporters Sharyl Atkisson and Lara Logan tossed out of CBS. The left hates honest reporters, especially if they are women, and will fight like hell to rid them from our midst.

But this is the kind of woman the left really loves. – This woman looks decidedly un-healthy, yet she is the person who is giving COVID-19 advice to thug Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. Is she even a human being? If there really was such a thing as alien hybrids, wouldn’t you expect them to look just like this?

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s nursing home scandal continues to grow, as does Andrew Cuomo’s. The horrific judgment and decisions by these men directly caused thousands of senior citizen deaths in their respective states. Pennsylvanians are out demonstrating their displeasure with Wolfe this morning.

Incidentally, the alien hybrid invasion appears to have made its way to the Pennsylvania health office, where Rachel Levine advises Wolf on COVID-19 policy (hat tip to contributor Phineas Gage for this reference):

Goodness.

The U.S. is dramatically over-counting Wuhan Virus deaths. John Lott, Jr. details how and why in today’s piece at Townhall.com.

Nancy Pelosi: Domestic Enemy

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

In an appearance with Jake Tapper on CNN Sunday morning, despicable and depraved Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said this:

In response, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, appearing on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo, said this:

“What she said, she’s blaming the president for people dying because of the way he’s led the country. That’s the most shameful disgusting statement by any politician in modern history. Let me tell you we’ve seen the best of America from our citizens helping each other, delivering groceries, having special shopping hours for senior citizens. She’s the first politician to blame another politician for people dying.”

There is no question that Sen. Graham is right: Pelosi’s statement is unhinged and completely unbecoming anyone who holds such a high office. But sadly, it is becoming more and more typical of this 80 year-old lunatic as she continues to age.

Let’s remember that San Fran Nan is fresh off of holding up a crucial stimulus bill for an entire week so she could insert pork to feed to favored constitutents like NPR, PBS, the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities, and the Kennedy Center. The Kennedy Center is such a national disgrace that it couldn’t even wait 24 hours from the time it received its $25 million bailout to tell all of its resident musicians that they were being laid off.

Let’s also remember that, when President Trump took the early, foresightful action of cutting off most travel into the U.S. from China on January 31, this is how the depraved Pelosi responded:

And here’s the babbling idiot urging tourists to go party in San Francisco’s Chinatown district on … wait for it … February 24:

Let’s also remember that, as the coronavirus was germinating in China’s Wuhan province last November through January, being spread across the world thanks to the rank mendacity of the ChiCom government, Nancy Pelosi was abusing her power and distracting the entire apparatus of the federal government with a completely bogus impeachment hoax. This stands as one of the most repugnant abuses of power by a high federal office holder in American history.

In their oaths of office, members of congress, commissioned military officers and other officials promise to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. 

Nancy Pelosi, through her habitual bald-faced lying, her abuse of her powers as Speaker, and her increasingly wild and irrational accusations aimed at the President and anyone else who opposes her radical leftist agenda, has very clearly proven herself to be a domestic enemy of the constitution and the people of this country. She should be treated accordingly by all thinking Americans.

Lindsey Graham Kicks the Can Down the Road One More Time

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

He’s not even talking a good game anymore. – Listen carefully to the second clip below of Senator Lindsey Graham, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as he essentially tells us that he is just going to keep talking, while at the same time doing nothing of any substance:

Here’s a transcript of that second clip, as Maria Bartiromo begins by asking him exactly what he plans to do in the next two weeks.:

Graham: You’re gonna have people interviewed by my staff and others, to find, to get the foundation. Before I call McCabe and Comey, I wanna find out exactly what happened. I wanna find out who told what to who, and then we’ll call ’em. I just can’t believe that…the investigation fell apart…In January 2017, they got two more warrants after they knew it was a bunch of garbage. How could that possibly happen?

Bartiromo: Yeah, and I just want to point out our timeline, which is this counterintel that happened way before July 31st of 2016, which is when the FBI said their investigation into Trump began. We go all the way back to December of 2015 on this timeline, when Michael Flynn was invited to Russia to sit next to Putin. Then you’ve got Papadopoulous meeting with Joseph Mifsud in April of 2016. Papadopoulous also invited to Rome where he was introduced to Mifsud as early as March of 2016. This is something John Durham is looking at. All of this activity before the beginning of this investigation. Why send these informants into Trump campaign people? Do you believe this is what John Durham is looking at as well?

Graham: Yeah, I think he’s looking at how it started. [Oh. You don’t say.] You gotta remember, the Mueller investigation was started after Comey was fired, because Rosenstein wanted Mueller to look at possible criminal activity by the Trump campaign.

Here’s my question to Rosenstein: If you knew then what you know now, that it was a bunch of garbage, would you have appointed Mueller? There was no crime; the Dossier was the basis of the warrant; in January, 2017 it was a bunch of garbage; the guy who provided the information to Steele rejected the Dossier’s being reliable. How could they continue? Why did it take two years for Mueller to figure this out? He should’ve figured it out in a week.

[End]

Ok, so, The essence of what you see and read here is that, as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham has made zero progress in a year. A full year ago, he was doing TV interviews saying and asking the exact same things he says and asks in this interview.

The only thing that is evolving and progressing related to any of this is his talking points and rationale for kicking the can down the road:

  • In February of last year, he had to wait to hold any hearings until newly-appointed AG William Barr had had time to get confirmed and acclimated into office;
  • In May of last year, he had to wait until Robert Mueller had testified before the House Judiciary Committee;
  • In September of last year, he had to wait until the House had run through its idiotic impeachment scam, for reasons that made no sense at all;
  • In November of last year, he had to wait until John Durham had completed his own investigation;
  • In January, he had to wait until the Senate Trial had been fully adjudicated.

So, here we are, a full year later, and all of these things have run their course, leaving Lindsey out of semi-valid excuses for further delay. Thus, now he turns to process: Before he can hold any hearings, he’s basically telling Bartiromo in this interview that he must wait until his staff has interviewed all the potential witnesses and conducted their own freaking investigation. And not just his staff, but these nebulous “others” who are not identified.

This single statement right here is a ticket for infinite delay: “I wanna find out who told what to who, and then we’ll call ’em.”

Of course, the truth is that we already know “who told what to who.” We know it ad nauseum, in fact, from the thousands of hours of testimony and millions of documents on the public record today that have been compiled by all the previous investigations that have been conducted into all of this. Graham has no real reason to have his staff spend weeks and months re-interviewing McCabe, Comey and all the other bad actors from the Obama era: All he and his staff need to do is review the massive record that has already been accumulated through more than three solid years of investigations, issue subpoenas for testimony, and start asking some damn questions in public hearings.

Maria Bartiromo seems to be a well-intentioned individual. At some point, one would hope that she would take the time to go back and conduct a review of all of her interviews with Graham since he became Chairman of Senate Judiciary, so she can see how the Senator has been stringing her and her audience along on this thing. And then, perhaps, get him back on the show and demand that he stop with the nonsense and provide some real answers.

Bottom line: If you are thinking you’re ever going to get anything real out of Lindsey Graham and the Senate Judiciary Committee in regard to trying to hold all the Obama-era bad actors accountable for their seditious actions, you are destined to be extremely disappointed. He has no intention of doing a damn thing.

On the positive side, Graham and his committee continues to confirm a butt-load of Trump judicial appointees. So, take that for what it’s worth and be happy about it, because that is all you are ever going to get from Graham’s chairmanship of this committee.

That is all.
