CRAZY: JUDGE SULLIVAN CAN'T LET FLYNN CASE GO
Come on, Judge Sullivan; at this point, you’re just embarrassing yourself.
I say this because at the time of this writing, late Wednesday night, Emmet Sullivan, the presiding judge in the Michael Flynn case, still has not complied with the federal appeals court that ordered him to drop the case. What he did was issue a “stay of the current settings” for a hearing already on the calendar and for any further briefings.
The vote was 2-1 from a 3-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. I’m not a lawyer, but it seemed to me that even the judge who dissented was doing it based on the timing of their intervention, not the merits of the case itself. But that’s not enough for Judge Sullivan, who, in defying Attorney General Barr’s decision to drop the case, has shown himself to be the very incarnation of Captain Ahab, determined to harpoon the Great White Trump if it sinks him.
(Aside: to show how apt this imagery is for describing TDS, I’ve included this quote from Melville’s MOBY DICK: “...all evil, to crazy Ahab, were visibly personified, and made practically assailable, in Moby Dick. He piled upon the whale’s white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he he burst his hot heart’s shell upon it.”)
Anyway, Barr –- who is, after all, the prosecutor –- wants to dismiss the case. The D.C. panel wants to dismiss it. Lord knows Flynn and attorney Sidney Powell want to dismiss it. One would think even the original prosecutors would want the case dismissed, as Powell has amassed a mountain of evidence of their misconduct big enough to send THEM to the hoosgow. It seems the only one still involved who doesn’t want to drop it is Judge Sullivan, and the appeals judges have essentially kicked the ball back to his court. He doesn’t get to exercise his own discretion on whether or not to drop it, but he may choose to continue to stretch this out and have the matter re-heard by the full appeals court.
Project Veritas has released another undercover video, this one allegedly exposing the free speech-crushing leftist bias inside Facebook.
Facebook insider/whistleblower Zach McElroy said, “We are essentially in charge of what gets said and what gets stifled,” and he’s willing to testify to Congress about Facebook’s bias and its algorithm that results in 75-80% of posts selected for review being ones that support Trump or conservative causes.
The video captures Facebook moderators bragging about how they target and sideline conservative posts. One is asked if she deletes every Republican post that comes up, and she replies, “Yes! I don’t give no (bleep)s, I’ll delete it.” As for anti-Trump posts that do violate policy, she said, “You gotta take it down, but I leave it up. If you see something that’s not supposed to be up, it’s probably me.” Another said, “If someone is wearing a MAGA hat, I am going to delete them for terrorism…I think we are all doing that.”
Check out the link to see the Project Veritas video, as well as video of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg testifying under oath to Congress that Facebook doesn’t have any bias, why, “to the contrary, our goal is to be a platform for all ideas.”
He must define “all ideas” the way the New York Times defines “all the news” in its motto, “All the news that’s fit to print.” That is, all the news that fits the leftwing political agenda. If Congress doesn’t change the law to yank Facebook’s protection from lawsuits as a “neutral platform” (HA!), then can we at least see perjury charges brought?
Former Secretary of State John Kerry is warning, in pure defiance of the American tradition of the peaceful transfer of power and acceptance of election results, that if Trump wins in November, there will be “revolution” in the streets. What’s going on now is only a small preview. This is the kind of intimidation tactic you’d expect to hear in a Third World thugocracy.
SO CRAZY IT MIGHT BE TRUE
Since we’re in 2020, this is a suggestion so crazy, it almost has to be true: could the idea of wiretapping incoming National Security Advisor Mike Flynn’s calls with the Russian ambassador, and ludicrously prosecuting him under the Logan Act just for doing his job, have been suggested by Joe Biden because…he saw it on cable reruns of the TV show, “The West Wing”?
Too bad everyone else involved didn’t watch reruns of “The FBI” with Efrem Zimbalist Jr. and learn how they were supposed to do their jobs.
DEMOCRATS FILIBUSTER POLICE REFORM
Wednesday, Senate Democrats used the filibuster to block consideration of the GOP bill on police reform. They badmouthed it in offensively hyperbolic terms (Nancy Pelosi using it to blame the murder of George Floyd on Republicans), declared it “unsalvageable,” and ranted that it didn’t go nearly far enough in addressing all the racism and corruption that’s run rampant in big cities run for decades by Democrats (well, they didn’t actually say that part. I just included it for context.)
But why are rich white liberals like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi so desperate to kill this bill, which was crafted largely by Sen. Tim Scott, one of the few black Senators and someone who has experienced police racial profiling firsthand?
For all their denunciations of the bill and its creators’ motives, it’s actually very similar to the Democratic bill the House came up with, although, of course, it doesn’t go as far in terms of spending or increasing federal power over local policing. Many details are virtually identical, yet the Dems would have us believe that only their bill addresses the problems (created under their jurisdiction – sorry, just adding accurate context again), while the Republican bill is so weak and racist that it’s not even worthy of allowing debate to discuss alterations and amendments.
And this is after the Democrats insisted that the issue is so urgent that a bill MUST be passed before July 4th. So the Republicans offered up a bill with virtually everything they wanted – and they killed it. Why? I thought black lives mattered to them.
Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media has a theory to explain why they’re doing this, and you won’t be surprised to hear that it involves the Democrats thinking that something else matters more than black lives, and that’s election-year politics.
