- “Arise and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.” -Winston Churchill
From Instapundit commenter MikeSixes: “His push to step up the seizure of innocent people’s property was reason enough. His continued persecution of the Little Sisters [of The Poor] is too much. He has to go.”
Moreover, as commenter Killerbee adds: “Any AG that ramps up the war on drugs (unwinnable, never ending, corrupt to the core, a deflection from the blatant criminality in DC) rather than going after the things that actually need going after either has things to hide, is owned by someone, or just has a terrible handle on the job.”
How about some investigations of leakers? Reopening of the Clinton email case?
Resign, Sessions, resign.
Thomas Sowell spells it out in this decade-old-but-still-relevant review of a documentary that’s still available on the Internet:
“While the public has been led to believe that ‘all’ the leading scientists buy the global warming hysteria and the political agenda that goes with it, in fact the official reports from the United Nations or the National Academy of Sciences are written by bureaucrats — and then garnished with the names of leading scientists who were ‘consulted,’ but whose contrary conclusions have been ignored.”
PJMedia’s Roger L. Simon says it best.
“To take any of this seriously as a search for truth is absurd. It’s more like a blood sport, the modern equivalent of gladiatorial combat. Trump baiting. And Trump, as the bear, lashes out. He has reason to.
“As everyone knows, cooks cook, plumbers fix the plumbing, and prosecutors prosecute. It’s what they do, part of their personality structure. Especially if the prey is big, and they don’t bring in at least one or two significant players, they feel as if they haven’t done their job. So they work and work until they do — nab someone for something. Trump knows this. The media know this. We all know it.
“And bad as it may be for Trump, it’s going to be even worse for We the People.
UPDATE: Trump reportedly is ready to fire Mueller after learning he will have access to Trump’s tax returns, examination of which Trump did not sign on for.
Not only has Mueller’s witch hunt taken up an investigation of Trump’s personal and family business transactions—which Trump told the NYSlimes would be an unforgivable red line—but Mueller is being revealed as the main Democrat tool who stonewalled the IRS investigation for Obama back in 2013.
Hard to believe no one remembered that little IRS point from a mere four years ago, when they were all praising Mueller’s integrity and independence. But there it is. Mueller’s the former head of the FBI who neglected to interview any of the conservatives who said the IRS had targeted them. Any of them.
Now the question becomes can Trump actually fire Mueller? It looks like that may be harder than you might imagine. Because Sessions recused himself on matters Russia, Trump would have to get Rosenstein to do it. But if Rosenstein refused…
So Trump has a bad choice. Either allow Mueller to proceed to sift through his business practices with an eye towards some violation or other (hell, even reopen Trump’s divorce records) or risk all-out war with Congress and the sycophant snooze media. The media already willing to use fake news to embarrass/harass him.
Unless…he issued preemptive pardons for anyone caught up in the probe who was not specifically involved with Russia and the 2016 election. That might work.
UPDATE: Newt Gingrich says 99.81 percent of the political contributions from Mueller’s law firm went to HRC. Obviously making him special counsel was a setup.
Forbes: “…the facts in the public domain fall well short of evidencing criminal intent, let alone a conspiracy and an underlying criminal statute that parties conspired to violate.”
Nevertheless it’s past time to fire Mueller, give Don Jr a pardon if that’s necessary, and let the chips fall. The Reps will never impeach a president of their own party and the Dems have no power to do it.
UPDATE: Mueller already was moving the goalposts by investigating Don Jr. Now he’s turning to Trump’s Russian business transactions. Come on, DJT, show some balls. Fire him and his cadre of Democrat lawyers.
