If the Dims capture the House

Historically the opposition party has taken part or all of the Congress in a mid-term election. So it would not be a surprise if the Dims do it in November. Impeachment of the president would be the first result, among other things.

“Most observers think the Democrats will, indeed, capture the House in November. Among other things, this will enable them to shut down the investigations that have slowly shed light on the extraordinary abuses of power that occurred during the Obama administration. All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and women to do nothing.”

So get out and vote in November. The coastal elites that own the Dim party are notoriously lazy. The heartland and rustbelt working class could stop them.

Keeping the Dims in line

It’s called living in their heads, rent free.

Treachery, thy name is Brennan

“[Former CIA director John O.] Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, meets the textbook definition of a useful idiot for the Russians. At the height of the Cold War, he cast his vote in 1976 for Gus Hall, the American Communist Party’s presidential candidate. He refused to take his Oath of Office on the Bible during his swearing-in ceremony.

“Brennan deplored Ronald Reagan’s description of the Soviet Union as an evil empire and joined other leftists in demanding that he pursue détente with Marxist thugs who make Putin look like a piker. During his time as Obama’s CIA Director he sanitized the concept of jihad and constantly whitewashed Islamic terrorism.

“Now that he’s left the armchair comfort of the CIA he has resumed the radicalism of his youth by calling for civil disobedience and the overthrow of a duly elected president.”

UPDATE: Kimberley A. Strassel in the WSJ: “Mr. Comey stands accused of flouting the rules, breaking the chain of command, abusing investigatory powers. Yet it seems far likelier that the FBI’s Trump investigation was a function of arrogance and overconfidence than some partisan plot. No such case can be made for Mr. Brennan…by his own testimony, he as an Obama-Clinton partisan was pushing information to the FBI and pressuring it to act.”

The Political-Industrial Complex

We’ve all heard, ad nausea, of the military-industrial complex. But how many of us know about the political version?

“…today, government, politicians, and big corporations might as well be one and the same. Their self-interests are inextricably intertwined. Members of Congress serving on pivotal committees solicit contributions—legal payoffs—from the very special interests they’re supposed to oversee…Congress ends up protecting and defending those it should be watchdogging.

“Likewise, federal agencies view the companies and industries they’re supposed to regulate as ‘clients’ and ‘stakeholders.’ These agencies are largely bought and paid for. They act as partners working in tandem for a common purpose…Big corporations write and approve press releases that the government issues. As allies they hold closed meetings and make decisions about matters of public interest without the public’s input. And because they make the rules: it’s all legal.”

Via a good, easy to read 2014 book about the Obama Administration: “Stonewalled,” by former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.

She also contends journalism is dying, especially the investigative kind, and acted mainly as cheerleaders for Obama. Which led to their insane attacks on President Trump. Next time you hear Bronco say he had a scandal-free presidency think of this book. Well worth your time and money.

Clinton sought tarmac meeting with Lynch

Interesting.. what the IG report says about the Bill Clinton/AttyGenLoretta Lynch tarmac meeting right before Hillary’s FBI interview:

“On p. 203 of IG report, ‘The OPA (Office of Public Affairs) Supervisor said that he later learned that fmr Pres. Clinton’s Secret Service detail had contacted Lynch’s FBI security detail to let them know that the former Pres. wanted to meet with Lynch.’ —Sharyl Attkisson on Twitter retweeting Alabama journalist Christopher Sign

So much for their chance meeting/talk of family and grandkids. But we didn’t believe that for a minute, did we? And it took a local Alabama journalist to ferret it out and report it. Whassup NYTimes?

Waiting for Godot

“When will the journalists who bribed FBI officials be arrested? And when will the FBI agents be fired? What is taking so long? —WSJ commenter James Doppelheuer

The farce that has to end

“As retired FBI special agent Thomas Baker wrote on these pages last month (“The FBI’s Shocking Disrespect for Congress,” May 11), the FBI has damaged its credibility by flouting subpoenas and slow-rolling or hiding information. This behavior is why Congress must continue to pry out the truth.”

Deputy AG Ron Rosenputz’s recent threat to subpoena congressional staff is a good place to start. Fire the SOB, Mr. President, then order all documents released immediately.

UPDATE: One of the curious things the IG report found was the extent of leaks to the snooze media by literally scores of FBI personnel. In a curious reversal of the old norm of reporters being wined and dined: “FBI employees received tickets to sporting events from journalists, went on golfing outings with media representatives, were treated to drinks and meals after work by reporters, and were the guests of journalists at nonpublic social events…”
