We might have only barely started to “drain the swamp,” but as we learn more about the deep state --- and, yes, it’s REAL --- those who have been paying attention increasingly see how mired Washington is in muck.
For a good example, one that will chill any student of history who knows the horror caused by similar rationalizations, look at what ex-CIA Director John Brennan tweeted on Tuesday: “As in previous times of National peril, we rely on our military, diplomats, intelligence officials, law enforcement officers, and other courageous patriots to protect our liberties, freedom, & democracy. May they stay resolute & strong despite corrupt political headwinds they face.”
Democrats getting cold feet
As the Thursday vote on the House Democrats’ resolution to authorize an impeachment inquiry draws closer, more Democrats are getting cold feet, and some are suggesting that maybe the vote should be put off (like, until after the 2020 elections.)
It’s not even a resolution to authorize an impeachment inquiry but more like an attempt to belatedly slap a whitewash of legitimacy onto the kangaroo court proceedings that have already been taking place.
Here’s the full text of the resolution, and if you wade through it, you’ll see it’s just an attempt to paper over a lot of one-sided partisan shenanigans with legalese.
It’s also not a resolution to begin an impeachment inquiry but merely to codify the unfair tactics currently being used to dig up any excuse for launching an impeachment inquiry. It reminds me of something I heard once on a live Commander Cody album, when the band was about to switch gears from country to rock: “We're about to begin to start to commence to get ready to rock and roll…”
At this link, Michael Goodwin of the New York Post warns that by giving in to the crazed leftist hotheads and allowing this nakedly political sham to proceed, Pelosi is making “a historic mistake,” a “meritless, reckless assault on democracy” that could “tear America apart.”
Although for all her chin music about protecting the Constitution, from what we’ve seen so far and what this resolution aims to make official, I think Pelosi and her coterie of Mad Haters are more inspired by another classic piece of writing, Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” Particularly this description of the Queen of Hearts’ insane croquet game:
"'I don’t think they play at all fairly,’ Alice began, in rather a complaining tone, ‘and they all quarrel so dreadfully one can’t hear oneself speak—and they don’t seem to have any rules in particular; at least, if there are, nobody attends to them—and you’ve no idea how confusing it is…”
Proving, as I suspected: "We're through the looking glass, people!"
I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:
Dick Morris, who was a longtime friend and political adviser to Bill Clinton, says he believes Hillary does want to run for President again. He said she feels “compelled” to do it, she feels “entitled” to it, and “she feels that God put her on the Earth” to run.
At this point, Hillary should consider that if God really is telling her to run, maybe He just means she needs to get more exercise.
Nobody loves a good dog story – or a “Good dog!” story – more than I do, and here’s one for the ages:
Meet Conan, the American military dog who chased down and cornered ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Before Conan could turn the terrorist coward into a human chew-toy, as the New York Post so colorfully puts it, Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest, killing himself and three of his children, and injuring Conan. But miraculously, Conan shook it off and has already been cleared to return to service.
To those TDS sufferers who are trying to find ways to criticize President Trump for offing this monster, I would suggest that the only thing he has to apologize for is saying that Baghdadi “died like a dog.” That’s an insult to dogs, like the heroic Conan.
PS – Leave it to the hilarious Babylon Bee satirical site to illustrate how the liberal media would deal with this story: take down the heroic dog by digging up embarrassing behavior he exhibited as a pup.
And as long as I’m quoting the Babylon Bee on this subject, here’s a well-deserved jab at the Washington Post for their reverent description of Baghdadi as “an austere religious scholar.” What would they call the Rev. Jim Jones, a successful Kool-Aid marketer?
