Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse must be really desperate to change the subject from Democrat failures and his longtime membership in a tony, all-white beach club because he’s demanding a revival of the investigation into ridiculous, partisan accusations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been on the Supreme Court for coming up on four years now.

I don’t why he didn’t pick something more timely, like a new investigation of the crash of the Hindenburg. For those who think that’s insensitive because we must “believe all women,” please note that that’s also an outdated relic of the Kavanaugh brouhaha. That had a stake driven through it by the liberal media’s burial of a rape accusation against Joe Biden that actually came with some corroborating evidence.

Whitehouse and fellow Democrat Sen. Chris Coons are questioning whether the FBI fully investigated the most credible of 4500 tips that came into their tip phone line. First of all, if you open up any forum about any political figure, you’ll get a bare minimum of 4500 replies of questionable value (see “Twitter.”) Secondly, their claim that they didn’t get this information is belied by the fact that the FBI printed out a summary of all 4500 “tips” and made it available to every Senator to read at the time.

Did Sen. Whitehouse not know that? Or was he too busy at the regatta to read it?

Update On Simone Biles

July 28, 2021

The Olympic gymnast who was expected to dominate the Tokyo Games pulled out of all team events and has now dropped out of individual events as well and will not defend her title.

Without her, the US women’s gym team lost the gold for the first time in 13 years, coming in second to Russia.

Ms Biles explained that she was not physically injured, but was feeling too emotionally shaky to go on. She said, “Once I came out here (to compete), I was like, ‘No, mental is not there so I just need to let the girls do it and focus on myself.’”

Her last-minute withdrawal drew harsh criticism from some analysts, who accused her of being self-centered and said if she couldn’t compete, she should have let someone else take her place rather than leaving her team in the lurch. Kylee Zempel at the Federalist took that view.

Others took Biles’ side, noting that she had been one of former team doctor Larry Nassar’s sexual assault victims, and people shouldn’t judge her if they don’t know what she’s going through.

One of the best commentaries was from radio host Mark Davis, who didn’t rebuke Ms Biles but considered what this says about how attitudes have softened and how the value of exhibiting mental toughness when the going gets tough is slipping away.

https://townhall.com/columnists/markdavis/2021/07/28/the-simone-biles-moment-reveals-our-softened-world-n2593215

As for me, I will pray for Ms Biles to achieve her peace, and also root for the US Women’s Team to call on their mental toughness to succeed without her.

Tuesday, the Biden Administration released a 21-point plan for processing asylum seekers more quickly.

https://www.westernjournal.com/biden-unveils-plan-allows-immigrants-granted-asylum-bypassing-courts/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

It would allow some to bypass immigration courts, which have a 1.2 million-case backlog, and let their cases be decided by asylum officers. (FYI: the courts would be backlogged even worse if Biden would let immigration authorities schedule court dates or if those who did have them were actually showing up for them.)

https://www.westernjournal.com/report-50000-immigrants-released-us-without-court-date-small-fraction-report-ice/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

They claim the plan would also promptly deport those who don’t qualify (question: would there be any of those under Biden?) There’s a lot of nice talk, like, “We will always be a nation of borders, and we will enforce our immigration laws in a way that is fair and just,” but is that just camouflage to hide the devil in the details?

Color me skeptical, considering that the White House statement declared that “asylum and other legal migration pathways should remain available to those seeking protection.”

Do you know who’s currently seeking protection from deadly threats by a genuinely oppressive government? Cubans.

This story was so absurd that I held off from commenting on it until I was fairly certain it wasn't a hoax or a prank. But apparently, the leftist BLM group Dallas Justice Now really did circulate a letter to parents in the wealthy neighborhoods of Highland Park and University Park, telling them that if they wanted to prove they’re allies of BLM and not racists, they should pledge not to send their kids to Ivy League schools to leave more spots open for minority students.

https://www.westernjournal.com/dallas-leftist-group-accuses-rich-white-parents-oppressing-minorities-makes-head-scratching-demand/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

My writers live in Dallas, and they assure me that’s about as likely to happen as them being able to afford a house in Highland Park. This came about because, even though those neighborhoods are heavily old-money Republican, their kids have been indoctrinated and were virtue-signaling their BLM support. That gave the DJN group an opening to accuse them of being racist hypocrites if they don’t really make sacrifices to atone for the wealth they’ve accumulated by oppressing minorities (they seem to think that’s how wealth is accumulated; not by providing goods and services that people want to pay for – sounds like they’ve been indoctrinated with dumb ideas, too.)

While everyone is having a good laugh over this, I think the parents should take it seriously. Look at how your kids are already acting. Can you imagine what insufferable, useless little socialists they’ll become if you send them to an Ivy League university? This group may have done you the biggest favor imaginable by scaring you into sending them to Liberty University or military school before it’s too late.


Biden Priorities

July 28, 2021

Demonstrating the priorities of our “intelligence” and “justice” agencies, just as actual violent, anarchist rioters are being released without charges, Biden’s DOJ has dropped the investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s part in putting COVID patients in nursing homes with deadly results.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/cuomo-still-faces-a-doj-investigation-e2-80-94-but-the-real-action-is-the-state-ag-e2-80-99s-probe/ar-AAMAu4f

The DOJ has also dropped charges against five Chinese scientists who hid their involvement with the Chinese military to obtain work visas at American universities.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/kevindowneyjr/2021/07/26/doj-drops-charges-against-5-possible-chinese-spies-as-fbi-focuses-on-january-6-n1464726

Meanwhile, they are focusing hard on investigating and prosecuting the daylights out of the real threat to America: everyone who entered the Capitol on January 6th, even if they just stepped through the open door to take a selfie or use the bathroom.

Related: Cuomo dismissed the now-dropped DOJ investigation of his nursing home policies as “toxic politics” (funny, I reserve the word “toxic” for things that actually kill people, like forcing nursing homes to take in COVID patients.) He’s now showing his COVID-fighting bona fides by declaring that government reps should knock on doors, put unvaccinated people in cars and drive them to get vaccines. If they were forced into a car with a driver who had COVID, that would sound like an Andrew Cuomo plan.

There were plenty of phony tears and histrionics at the opening day of the House’s January 6th “investigative” committee (as Mary Chastain at Legal Insurrection noted, it’s no wonder Hollywood and politicians get along so well: they’re all actors.)

https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/07/kizinger-schiff-fake-cry-during-january-6th-hearing/

Among those testifying tearfully were Capitol Hill police officer Harry Dunn. He claimed that the protesters were chanting the “N-word” at him. To my knowledge, and from both my quick search and research by Redstate.com, he’s the only person who’s ever made that claim and no video or audio has surfaced to substantiate it. That doesn’t mean it isn’t true, but it’s so incendiary (and perfectly on the nose with the leftist narrative about Trump supporters) that it seems that someone else would’ve heard it and mentioned it before now. And since he also claimed under oath that officer Brian Sicknick died as a result of injuries sustained that day, which an autopsy proved was not true (he had a stroke), then he’s already established himself as an unreliable witness.

https://redstate.com/streiff/2021/07/27/january-6-commission-star-witness-has-a-history-of-hating-president-trump-and-support-riots-that-arent-where-hes-working-n417384

That story also includes a lot of Dunn’s previous tweets that were widely distributed by conservative media outlets and that suggest he is not exactly an unbiased, objective witness. He has a history of making nasty and even racist comments about prominent conservatives; calling his commander-in-chief, President Trump, the “racist in chief;” defending radical anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar; and most tellingly, defending the violent George Floyd rioters, even after their rioting got people killed. He tweeted to Tucker Carlson, “Why is murder an appropriate response to property damage but property damage isn’t an appropriate response to murder?”

Ironically, some people might point to justifications for the shooting of unarmed protester Ashlii Babbitt and the refusal to hold anyone accountable for it as evidence that the people running this commission think murder is an appropriate response to property damage.

Maybe the Democrats are right: some cops do need better training.
