One thing we’re glad to see: Critics of the administration who used to temper their words out of fear of getting canceled are getting rarer. Of course, that’s because some of them have already been canceled! Here are a few searing quotes from “Dilbert” cartoonist Scott Adams’ podcast “Coffee With Scott Adams,” on Friday morning (after Trump’s arraignment in Fulton County, Georgia, on Thursday):
“I have a hypothesis that I’m working on, and it goes like this…We would not be seeing the things we’re seeing if we had an actual President who was in charge. In other words, my belief is that it’s now so obvious a criminal enterprise, and it’s so obviously a criminal prosecution, and it’s so far over the line, that no President would do that and turn his legacy to garbage.
“At this point, I would say Biden’s legacy is just criminal and garbage.”
“...It’s almost turning into a legal civil war, a ‘lawfare’ civil war.”
He compared the Democrat Party to a group of zombies, who seem to be acting in coordinated fashion but who have no discernable leader, and to winged monkeys who have taken over the palace. He also said this:
“Citizens are innocent until proven guilty; the government is guilty until proven innocent, by transparency. Transparency is the only thing that gets you a pass. If you’ll let us inside, let us look around, audit when we need to, let people have access to whatever we need to, then I’m willing to say...carry on.”
“The moment transparency is not in full effect, the assumption has to be the worst case...the lack of transparency allows a reasonable person to say you have a criminal enterprise.”
And that’s where we are. So, what do we do when we know, from the lack of transparency, that elections have been messed with? As Mark Levin said Sunday night, when bureaucrats interfere in elections, “it is Congress, and only Congress, that has the final say in elections. Not the Department of Justice, not a prosecutor, not a judge, not a grand jury. The system is set up, Congress counts all the electors...We have constitutional illiterates and ignoramuses all over TV. The election isn’t over until Congress says it’s over, and counts the electors.”
Levin was only too eager to speak of the criminal enterprise on his show, quoting from the official DOJ “Justice Manual”: “Federal prosecutors and agents may never select the timing of any action, including investigative steps, criminal charges, or statements, for the purpose of affecting any election, or for the purpose of giving an advantage or disadvantage to any candidate or political party.” (A look at the timeline for President Trump’s upcoming trial dates makes it unmistakably clear that this is all about election interference.) The only time this may be done is when the U.S. Attorney General has approved it, so, of course, Merrick Garland is behind this.
Be sure and watch Levin’s opening monologue for much more on what the rule of law is SUPPOSED to be. And in the following segment, he explains why the notion that a President can’t pardon himself at the state level is something somebody just made up. The spirit of the law would be that he certainly could.
“If I’m wrong and the others are right,” he said, “the country is over. There are thousands and thousands of DAs and assistant DAs and state prosecutors. There are thousands of assistant U.S. attorneys; that’s bad enough.”
Levin also took a side trip into the archives for a look into Special Counsel Jack Smith’s background. Did you know Smith was the one who first called the DOJ’s attention to the conservative “Tea Party” nonprofit groups --- not the many “progressive” ones, of course --- that Lois Lerner’s team ended up investigating when Obama was running for re-election? This was back when he was leading the --- try not to laugh --- Public Integrity Section --- of the ‘Justice’ Department.
Ironically, Republicans at that time sought a special counsel to investigate THAT, with Smith’s actions cited as one reason. Alas, the Public Integrity Unit (under Smith) decided not to open any investigation. The only scrutiny was of the Tea Party groups, by the IRS...
Recall that the IRS later admitted their actions were wrong blah blah blah, and that Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth Amendment before Congress and retired with her full pension.
Newt Gingrich, Levin’s guest, went into more detail about the ongoing criminal enterprise. The real corruption, he said, lies with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (two ideological associates of Saul Alinsky), with Biden “the smallest of the three players.” Their Alinsky grounding says “middle class rules don’t matter, the law doesn’t matter, honesty doesn’t matter, do whatever you can get away with.” Obama and his people currently run the show; Biden “sort of floats along.”
“The depth of corruption is breathtaking.” Most of us who have been “sleepwalking” don’t realize “the scale of the corruption taking over the system.”
For that reason, the investigation by the House Republicans needs to be “much broader and deeper,” he said, starting with subpoenaing all the financial records of the Clinton Foundation, “which is going to produce evidence of a level of wrongdoing, in terms of millions and millions of dollars, far beyond anything we’ve seen with Joe Biden.”
More generally, Gingrich stressed that the biggest challenge for the American people is to recognize that we are replacing the rule of law with the rule of power. “What you saw in Atlanta was an arrogant, corrupt, dishonest, radical district attorney, who brings in, I think, an indictment that is insane, and makes no sense at all. [That’s also] what you’re seeing with Jack Smith --- who, by the way, was repudiated unanimously by the Supreme Court when he tried to destroy Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia [by totally misstating the law and misleading the jury].
Gingrich believes this is precisely why Garland picked him --- he wanted a “rabid dog,” and he sure got one. Garland would do “anything to get Trump,” in as biased a courtroom as it’s possible to get.
“When I watch lawyers try to explain all this,” he said, “I think they miss the point. This isn’t about the law. These people couldn’t care less about the law. They are in a vendetta to destroy Donald Trump, because they’re terrified that if Trump becomes President again, having now had time to think through how corrupt, how dishonest, how outrageous they are, that he will tear apart their establishment.”
I would add that this is exactly why we need to re-elect him, and the American people increasingly understand this (including black men, many of whom identify with Trump as the victim of corrupt law enforcement policy). As Gingrich said, Trump is no longer just a candidate; he’s the leader of a movement. That mugshot the Democrats coveted so much has already brought in over $7 million in campaign donations…to Trump.
Trump didn’t need this persecution; he could have retired and left the country to whatever forces are set on controlling it. But he’s still in there, fighting.
He really might be our last hope. As Gingrich said, “If they can break Trump, then there’s nobody who’s gonna stand up against them, and we will become like Cuba or Nicaragua or a variety of other authoritarian systems.” But if they lose, he said, given the opportunity we’ll have to see just how sick the system is, “the more likely it is we will reform it.”
RELATED: Joe Biden might be relatively small potatoes in the garden of government corruption, but it’s important to get to the bottom of that right away. Did you see fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin’s interview with FOX NEWS’ Brian Kilmeade over the weekend? Here it is…
Shokin told Kilmeade that he knows pressure from Biden was the reason behind his firing, because former president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko told him. He said he doesn’t have proof but believes both Joe and Hunter were taking bribes from Zlochevsky and Burisma. More points from the interview are here...
Something else highly suggestive of corruption: NEWSMAX White House correspondent James Rosen broke the news last week that the agency hosting the domain for the secret account used by Joe Biden’s alias “Robert L. Peters” was an elite --- but rather obscure --- IT unit of the Defense Department called the Defense Information Systems Agency, or DISA. It describes itself as a “combat support agency,” but Biden reportedly possessed “no statutory authority or duties relating to the Armed Forces, beyond the nomination of candidates for the Service Academy.” The significance of Rosen’s discovery is unknown, but this agency sure looks like a place to hide something where no one would look. We look forward to more updates from Rosen; here’s what we know so far…
