One reason I’m generally opposed to special counsels – especially those like the Mueller investigation that have no end date, budget or clearly-defined investigative limits – is because, frankly, we have too many laws. It’s been said that everyone unknowingly violates 10 laws before breakfast; and if prosecutors aren’t reined in, they can railroad anyone into prison through selective prosecution.
For instance, it’s been amazing to see Hillary Clinton get away with smashing federal laws and regulations like an HGTV host with a sledgehammer on demo day; meanwhile, Democrats demand endless hearings, investigations, prison time and impeachment for anyone associated with Trump who ever jaywalked on a day with a “y” in it. Leftists demand strict adherence to every arcane federal rule and regulation from their opponents, with no forgiveness for honest mistakes or simply not knowing some piddling issue might be a violation. Meanwhile, they feel free to ignore such rules, assuming they exist only to rein in the bad behavior of bad people (their opponents) and surely not to impede the good intentions of good people (them.)
Unfortunately for them, Republicans are fed up with being held to rigid standards that Democrats ignore. Some of our newly-minted far-left Congress members who railed about holding Trump’s people “accountable” are suddenly discovering that there are a lot of federal laws, rules and regulations that they never imagined existed, or if so, that would ever apply to them.
For instance, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has little tolerance for anyone who disagrees with her radical politics, but she thinks she’s under unfair scrutiny when watchdogs look into her housing arrangements, her boyfriend’s salary, and now, the question of whether an out-of-state PAC provided over eight times more services to her campaign than is allowed by the FEC.
And she’s hardly the only self-righteous leftist firebrand who points out the speck in other people’s eyes while allegedly ignoring the telephone pole in her own:
Are some of these questions picky or motivated by partisanship? Maybe, but so what? Welcome to our world. Besides, this is of special importance since so many of the freshman Democratic class embrace socialism, one of the fatal flaws of which is that it greatly rewards corrupt government officials. Some of these people haven’t been in office long enough to warm their chairs yet, and they’re already dreaming of remaking America and spending trillions of dollars, all while displaying questionable ethics regarding public money and financial regulations. This is how Venezuela got a class of billionaires who just happened to be relatives and underlings of Hugo Chavez.
Judging from their angry response to inquiries about their finances, our new leftist Fearless Leaders don’t like it when the rules they’ve weaponized against Republicans get turned on them. The New York Post story includes this quote from Tom Anderson of the watchdog group, the Government Integrity Project at the National Legal and Policy Center in Virginia, who sums it up in a nutshell:
“They believe their cause is so great that they don’t have to play by the rules. They believe that they are above campaign finance law.”
They are in for a rude awakening. Republicans have had enough of weaponized laws and selective, partisan prosecutions. It’s time to put the blindfold back on Lady Justice and make the laws apply equally to all. I can’t think of a better way to get Democrats to finally agree with Republicans that we need fewer federal laws and regulations than to start strictly enforcing them on Democrats as well.
