Are We In The ‘End Game’ of the Mueller Investigation?

As several social media users have insinuated over the course of the last few days, there is a belief among the devout democrats that we are in the end game of the Robert Mueller investigation.

It’s easy to agree with them.  There just doesn’t seem to be any way in which this extraordinary event could continue long into the future without some sort of chaotic, cathartic explosion of egos in the coming days.  There’s too much at stake, and far too much emotion involved on the left side of things for it to end pretty.  There will be some sort of chaos; whether it is political or physical will be up to the players on the stage themselves, in Berkeley, Charlottesville, and Washington DC, as well as on Main Street, USA.

One bureaucratic thespian has announced his curtain call today, possibly hoping to avoid the tumult to come.

Top White House officials and sources close to White House counsel Don McGahn tell Axios that McGahn will step down this fall — after Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, or after the midterms. The president later confirmed Axios’ reporting in a tweet.

The big picture: This potentially puts a successor in charge of fielding a blizzard of requests or subpoenas for documents and testimony if Democrats win control of the House in the midterms. And if the White House winds up fighting special counsel Robert Mueller, an epic constitutional fight could lie ahead.

A source familiar with Flood’s thinking said: “The reason he can represent both Bill Clinton and Donald Trump is because he thinks these investigators come and basically put a target on their backs, trying to overturn every aspect of their lives searching for a crime.”

In the meantime, the indictments of Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort have begun rattling the cages of those involved in #RussiaGate, sensing that Mueller’s major moves will no longer be a distant event on the horizon.

New Travel Restrictions Arrive Months After Biden Bashed Trump for Same Thing

It’s like they’ve forgotten all about what they said when they were trying to insult Trump.

Oh the hypocrisy of the liberal left; does it know no bounds?

While President Joe Biden hasn’t been quite a contradictory as some of the other high-level hypocrites in his party, it appears that this is only because he really hasn’t done anything as Commander in Chief.  The border crisis remains a horrid, humanitarian stain on our nation.  Biden-flation continues to threaten the all-important consumer spending season surrounding Christmas.  Russia continues to act with impunity the world over.

It’s hard to be a hypocrite when all you do is sit idly by, right?

But now, a worrisome new strain of COVID-19 has threatened to take the world by storm, and Biden’s work to curb the spread here in the US appears to be eerily similar to actions that he once lambasted Donald Trump for taking.

President Joe Biden has imposed travel restrictions into the United States due to coronavirus fears despite previously slamming former President Trump as xenophobic for doing the same thing in 2020.

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted as a presidential candidate last year the day after Trump imposed travel restrictions from several countries including China into the United States. “We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”

And he even doubled down on this sentiment:

Biden later attempted to walk back the xenophobic comment and claimed during a debate that he was making a broad point about xenophobia and not directly referring to the travel ban.

“A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted in March of 2020. “Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it.”

One has to wonder, if Joe Biden was that oblivious about the needs of the nation back when he was insulting Donald Trump’s leadership, how is he possibly going to right the nation’s wrongs while in power?

California City Votes to Become ‘Constitutional Republic’, Will Not Adhere to COVID Rules

WHOA!

Published

on

There are plenty of ways in which companies and municipalities are working to push back against the government’s highly criticized COVID-19 mandates, and one town in California has just taken perhaps the largest step toward freedom that we’ve seen yet.

In a move that was born out of a need to keep the state government from becoming an authoritarian brute, the city of Oroville, California has declared itself a sovereign “constitutional republic”.

The city council in Oroville, located at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills about 90 miles from the capital of Sacramento, adopted a resolution this week stating it would oppose state and federal orders it deems to be government overreach.

Oroville leaders said the designation was a way of affirming the city’s values and pushing back against state rules it doesn’t agree with, although a legal expert said the designation was merely a gesture and did not grant the city any new authority.

The move had its naysayers, of course.

But the city’s declaration does not shield it from following federal and state laws, said Lisa Pruitt, a rural law expert at the University of California, Davis, who said it was not clear what the designation meant.

“A municipality cannot unilaterally declare itself not subject to the laws of the state of California,” Pruitt said. “Whatever they mean by constitutional republic you can’t say hocus pocus and make it happen.”

Despite the pushback, the measure passed in a vote of 6-1, and there is little doubt that legal challenges will be coming in the not-so-distant future.
