Cruel, mean and nasty. And a Dim. But I repeat myself.
“She’s a shrill (see the Kavanaugh hearings) quasi-socialist promising pie in the sky — Medicare-for-all, debt-free college, guaranteed pre-K, minimum basic income, confiscatory taxes — and she’s just getting started.”
“I still can’t get over that they marshaled a tactical SWAT team to arrest a man being arrested for making false statements.
The officers involved knew he wasn’t being arrested for a violent crime.
The officers involved knew he wasn’t being arrested for treason, weapons, or any crime indicating resistance was imminent.
The officers involved knew he was being arrested for saying something to the FBI that they thought was a lie. So, they strapped on body armor. They issued assault rifles. They moved in a tactical fashion under the cover of dark.
To arrest someone who, at best, would be convicted for lying.”

UPDATE: CNN, of course, was alerted to the pre-dawn raid and taped Roger Stone and his wife standing in the street barefoot and in their bedclothes. But, oddly, they left out the shocking footage of his wife.
“This is a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” Trump said. “Women and children are the biggest victims by far of our broken system … this is the tragic reality of uncontrolled migration on our southern border.”
An example, apparently, of what the Dims (Pelosi) called his malice and CNN (multiple personalities) called his lies.
“Trump said his proposal to Congress has both medical and other resources to deal with the flow of migrants, as well as law enforcement, and a $5.7 billion ‘steel barrier,’ which he said was a concession to Democrats, rather than a concrete wall.”

The Dims are planning to hit at the source of the new prosperous Trump economy, i.e. lowered corporate taxes. The Dims want to raise them again, substantially.
“Just last week, it was announced that the U.S. economy added 312,000 jobs in December. Over the past 12 months, wages have grown 3.2 percent and 2.6 million jobs being created. The U.S. has been named the most competitive economy in the world. Manufacturers just had their most successful year since 1997 and small business optimism is at record highs. Raising the corporate rate, as House Democrats are proposing, would undo these gains.”
Is it out of spite? Just to deny the GOP its economic glory? Or merely to tax and spend as the Dims usually do? They have many palms to grease. No matter. Until the Senate turns blue, it won’t happen.

“…with its roadside strip searches, government surveillance, biometric databases, [cash and home asset forfeiture], citizens being treated like terrorists, imprisonments for criticizing the government, national ID cards, SWAT team raids, censorship, forcible blood draws and DNA extractions, private prisons, weaponized drones, red light cameras, tasers, active shooter drills, police misconduct and government corruption.”
Even a partial government shutdown is to be encouraged. Less is more.
“A U.S. judge ordered the Justice and State departments Thursday to reopen an inquiry into whether Hillary Clinton used a private email server while secretary of state to deliberately evade public records laws, and to answer whether the agencies acted in bad faith by not telling a court for months that they had asked in mid-2014 for missing emails to be returned.”
Now, will it (or they) go anywhere meaningful? Wait and see.

UPDATE: Just a coincidence? IRS prosecutors are ready to pounce on the Clinton Foundation for back taxes. Slick Willie’s been playing fast and loose with the “charity.” This may be a bone the elite throw to us pleebs, letting the mrs skate on everything else. As Glenn Reynolds has said: “We have the worst political class ever, but the Clintons are the worst of the worst.”
As a retired FBI agent/friend once told me, the feds couldn’t find their asses with both hands. But they can sure cover their asses, eh FBI?
“In a stunning display, a man who is a recognized government watchdog and had given Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz documents showing federal officials ignored the relationship among Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, had his home raided by the FBI, despite the fact that his status was protected by law.”
What law? Fart, Barf & Itch don’t follow no steenking law.
“It involved some 16 agents making a house call on whistleblower Dennis Nathan Cain. The problem here seems to be that Cain is blowing the whistle on federal law enforcement (or the nonfeasance thereof) in matters pertaining to the Clinton crime family. As if that weren’t enough, Robert Mueller’s past service as FBI Director is implicated as well.”
Famous But Incompetent has a lot of asses to find and cover this time. They’ll probably miss a few. But, as always, there’ll be lots of innocents for them to intimidate.
