    FBI Director makes himself scarce

    When FBI Director Wray was being questioned by the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday, he surprised them by saying they'd have to wrap it up because he had to catch a flight.  But he misled the committee about that; in reality, he was taking a private government Gulfstream luxury jet to the Adirondacks for a vacation, so he had no set departure time.
    In retrospect, he was high-tailing it out of town before the raid, which took place in the pre-dawn on Monday!  It occurs to me that while he was sitting there in the hearing room evading the senators' questions, he had to be well aware that all hell would break loose in just a few days.  What a cool character.
    It's ludicrous to think this raid didn't happen without Wray's blessing, and that of at least someone at the highest levels of the White House, which seems curiously unconcerned about such an outrageous abuse of power, the worst in modern history.  But Wray had arranged to be out of town as they were preparing to raid Mar-A-Lago, trout fishing in the middle of a lake high in the Adirondacks!  And why not?  Everything had apparently been set in motion.
    At the time of this writing, there still has been no word from him.  So, is he back in the office yet?  Hard to tell.  (Wray takes "unavailable for comment" to a new level.)  Sen. Chuck Grassley announced Wednesday he'd spoken with Wray by phone and expressed his concerns, but this story has no word about what Wray might have said to him.
    Probably just that he "doesn't comment on ongoing investigations."

    Primary Roundup

    Tuesday brought primary elections in Connecticut, Vermont, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Here’s info on the key races and the latest results.

    Those first three states are usually considered so deep blue that Republicans don’t have a chance. Like victims of Stockholm Syndrome, voters there keep saying, “Thank you, sir, may I have another?” as they repeatedly elect and reelect Democrats who keep hiking their taxes, lowering their standards of living and raising their crime rates. Vermont gave us Bernie Sanders, for gosh sakes! The question is, have the past couple of years of ruinous Democrat rule finally dropped the last straw onto the camel’s back so that the expected red wave in November will actually drench Connecticut, Vermont and Minnesota?

    Wisconsin is considered a purple swing state, but the Washington Post actually got something right for once: it’s more like two states. A big, mostly red state and a smaller state of blue cities like Milwaukee and Madison. The rural areas are getting redder while the cities are getting bluer (high taxes and rampant crime do make people blue, but they've yet to grasp the connection between that and their voting patterns.)

    November’s results in Wisconsin will depend on which side is more motivated to vote. As for the other states, hope springs eternal, but Stockholm Syndrome and leftism are both powerful mental illnesses. But who knows? Maybe the $6-a-gallon gasoline and out-of-control crime (Minnesota was Ground Zero of the Defund-the-Police insanity) will shock them back to reality.

    If the intent of the outrageous FBI raid on former President Trump’s home was to intimidate his backers or scare Republicans away from the polls, it certainly didn’t work. Candidates endorsed by Trump won a clean sweep Tuesday, bringing his endorsement win/lose score up to 192-11.

    In one of the most-watched races, one in which many Democrats were rooting against their own incumbent, Don Samuels, a more centrist pro-police Democrat endorsed by a number of city and state officials, fell short in his challenge to Rep. Ilhan Omar.

    Well, they’ll get it unless they come to their senses and elect her Republican opponent, who will be Cecily Davis.

    She’s a pro-business, conservative black woman who promises to stand up to Marxism, end the weaponization of race, and focus on “supporting our police, cutting outrageous taxes and depoliticizing our classrooms.” Or they could have two more years of Ilhan Omar spouting socialism and racist, anti-Semitic and anti-American rhetoric on TV. As I often say, this won’t be an election, it will be an I.Q. test.



    Inflation update

    The Labor Department reported Wednesday morning that in July, for the first time in three months, the year-to-year inflation rate wasn't higher than the previous month.

    The rate in June was 9.1%, while the July inflation rate was 8.5%. While that will be touted by the White House as a great achievement, there are a couple of major caveats:

    First, it’s still incredibly high. The inflation rate normally hovers between 2 and 3 percent.  Second, the decline is being driven by a drop in demand because Americans can’t afford to buy anything. For instance, gas prices are finally dropping because people are cutting back to the bare minimum of driving, which increases the supply. That’s good for the inflation rate, but not so much for the American people. If the Administration would just ensure a steady supply that exceeds natural demand, prices would be dropping naturally without the burden of sacrifice falling on the people. 

    Hillary is not self aware

    Self-awareness has never been Hillary Clinton’s strong suit, but it’s hard to believe even she didn’t realize how bad it would look to debut a line of fundraising apparel with the slogan “But her emails…”

    And on the same day the FBI staged the outrageous armed raid on Trump’s home, under the pretense of searching for classified documents (actually, cocktail napkins, dinner menus and other personal and pointless junk.)

    I get that Hillary's ill-conceived merch must have been in the pipeline a long time, so the debut date was a coincidence. Still, it couldn’t look worse, thanks to Hillary’s predictably smug gloating over the Trump raid. Just what she needed at that particular moment: a fresh reminder of the shocking difference between the way she waltzed away scot-free after destroying Internet devices containing 33,000 government documents (some classified) and how Trump got the Elliot Ness treatment. If you were looking for the perfect illustration of a two-tiered, politicized, banana republic justice system, you couldn’t do any better.

    But then, what more could you expect of someone who seriously thinks it makes her look cool to arrogantly mock people who believe that exposing classified documents to our enemies was a crime – which it actually was. James Comey’s excuse for giving her a pass was that “no reasonable prosecutor” would charge her. Obviously, the feds don’t have reasonable prosecutors anymore.

    Incidentally, even if Trump did have classified documents, they were on paper in his secure home – and as President, he couldn’t expose “classified” documents. Presidents have the power to declassify anything they want.

    Maybe Hillary forgot she wasn’t President. Let’s hope she’ll never be, and cringe-worthly moments like this make it even less likely.



    Big Tex Choice Awards

    The judges at the State Fair of Texas released the 10 finalists for this year’s savory and sweet Big Tex Choice Awards, a major honor in the field of decadent fair foods.

    This year’s heart-stopping creations include the Deep-Fried BLT; the Deep-Fried Lasagna Roll; something for gourmets, the Fried Charcuterie Board; and Deep-Fried Rocky Road Fudge with Blue Bell Ice Cream.

    Notice that no matter how weird the recipes are, one thing you’ll never see is what wealthy globalist elitists are trying to make us all eat: insects. Americans are not going to eat crickets, even Deep-Fried Crickets. Before we get hungry enough to resort to that, we’ll eat Deep-Fried Globalist Elitists.

    The Democrats' plan backfires 

    I think my readers long ago figured out that the goal of the January 6th Kommittee, just like the raid on Trump’s home, was not to get to the truth but to prevent Trump from running for President again. But I’m glad to say we’re not alone, and that plan seems to be backfiring bigly.

    A new Issues & Insights/TIPP poll found that 89% of Americans say those House “hearings” have not changed their minds about what happened on January 6th and who’s responsible. In addition, most Americans think the hearings are partisan, and 60% believe the main goal is just to prevent Trump from running again. That includes 48% of Independents, 70% of Republicans and even 62% of Democrats.  And probably 100% of whatever Liz Cheney is these days.

    McConnell will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November

    Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday that he will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November. He is the longest-serving party leader in US history. He did not say if this has anything to do with the criticism he’s received from conservatives or with his recent health issues that caused him to freeze up in mid-sentence a time or two. But while he will no longer be the GOP leader, he intends to continue serving in the Senate at least through the end of his current term in January 2027.

    And here’s a surprise: Robert Kennedy Jr. suggested that McConnell be replaced by Sen. Rand Paul. RFK Jr. tweeted, “It’s time to promote leaders in Washington, DC, who won’t kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts. We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe Rand Paul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first.”

    Get Out

    Law Professor William A. Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog has been watching the politicized lawfare against Trump and conservative businesses and organizations in New York, and the unprofessional threats and ugly gloating by Attorney General Letitia James about how she’s going to destroy Trump. He analyzed the situation in light of assurances by Gov. Hochul that if your business isn’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear. And he arrived at this conclusion: 

    “Get out of New York, if you can.” And if you can’t leave now, “Develop an exit plan before you need it.

    Pray for the Panhandle

    Please join me in prayers today for those in the path of the huge wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and neighboring Oklahoma. There are five wildfires that are causing school closures and evacuations, including the evacuation of a nuclear power plant. The largest of them, the Smokehouse Creek Fire, covers 800 square miles and is now the second-largest wildfire in state history.

    This is a link to live updates on the fires from the Weather Channel.

    No test?!?

    The White House announced Wednesday that President Biden is making an unannounced trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his yearly physical exam…which will NOT include a cognitive test. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed questions about a cognitive test, saying Biden proves his cognitive abilities "every day [in] how he operates and how he thinks."  I’m confused, is that an argument for or against a cognitive test?

    Talk about a delicious irony

    One of the strongest arguments for overturning the ruinously large fine on Trump in his New York real estate fraud case is the Eighth Amendment protection against excessive fines. The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in 2019 that that protection does apply to state courts. And one of the strongest arguments for Trump to cite came from liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who said:

    “The prohibition embodied in the Excessive Fines Clause carries forward protections found in sources from Magna Carta to the English Bill of Rights to state constitutions from the colonial era to the present day. Protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history for good reason: Such fines undermine other liberties. They can be used, e.g., to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies.”

    I might not have agreed with many of her rulings, but judging from this, there’s no doubt she was psychic.

    Public Service Announcement

    Public service announcement to anyone thinking of donating to Harvard or sending their kids there: The co-chair of Harvard’s anti-Semitism task force resigned Monday because she has no confidence that Harvard will implement any of the task force’s recommendations to stop Jew hatred on campus.

    Related: Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media has a news round-up illustrating how bedbug crazy these pro-Palestine dingbats are and how they “have more vocal cords than brains,” from calling Jerry Seinfeld a “genocide supporter” to literally setting themselves on fire.




    Private School For Me, But Not For Thee

    Two Democrat Governors, Roy Cooper (North Carolina) and Andy Beshear (Kentucky), co-wrote an op-ed for USA Today condemning Republican attempts to give low-income parents vouchers to send their kids to the schools of their choice. They painted this as a racist conspiracy to loot the budgets of our precious public school system and set our schools back for a generation (as if the COVID lockdowns and the focus on woke politics and LGBTQ activism hadn't already set public school students back a generation.) 

    One problem: Both Democrat Governors send their own kids to elite private schools. But that’s okay because, hey, they can afford it.


    The Best People

    President Trump was roundly condemned as a racist and a xenophobe for saying of illegal immigration that other countries were not sending us their best people. So just to clarify, here’s an example of one of those best people that Joe Biden let in.
