Live From The Capitol, It’s The Mueller Report!

The stage is set, the drama is high, and the democrats are ready for their closeup….but definitely not for any closure.

mueller report

Much like the Saturday night variety show from which I lifted my headline, American politics have long been more theater than theocracy.

When we tune in to the fracas on Capitol Hill, we don’t see “public servants”; we see ruling class elites who showboat and grandstand their way into being elected because, let’s face it, Congressional legislators are far more wealthy than many of us will ever be.

So, in order to keep us mad at something other than the fact that they’ve rigged the game for themselves, these politicians bicker and fight with one another.  It’s entertaining, and the mainstream media feeds it to us on the daily.  It keeps us from realizing what the real issues are.

Such is the case with the Mueller report.

On the left, they are obsessed with the idea that the Mueller report will somehow delegitimize President Donald Trump.  On the right, the argument has turned to who actually got the ball rolling in the first place.

Now, in what could be one of the strangest bits of political theater we’ve seen in awhile, (and that’s saying something), there are plans to read the entire 448 pages aloud, on the record, and in front of cameras.

More than 20 House Democrats are planning a grueling 12-hour-long public reading of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation in its entirety, except for the redacted parts, on Thursday.

At the forefront of the spectacle is Pennsylvania Democrat Mary Gay Scanlon, vice chairwoman of the House Judiciary Committee, who’s been rallying other Democrats to join her in the public reading of the report that found no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, though it also noted there are 10 instances that could qualify as an obstruction of justice.

While the American people have certainly been clamoring for the truth about Russia’s interference in our electoral system, make no mistake about what Scanlon’s intentions are.

In a statement her office circulated to the media, she said that the Mueller report “illustrates a presidency founded in opportunism, devoid of respect for public service and the rule of law” and that “this administration and its enablers do not want the American people hear the contents of this report.”

The Mueller report has been made available for the public to read online already – a sticking point for those who oppose this use of congressional time.

Beto Turns Conspiracy Theorist When Asked About Validity of 2016 Election

Get out your tinfoil hats!

conspiracy tinfoil

When you look around the internet today, there is one group of online rabble rousers who are being stamped out at an alarming rate:  Conspiracy theorists. While many of these self-proclaimed “researchers” and “journalists” are truly incorrigible, (such as nutcase Alex Jones), the underlying fact remains that taking away their right to speak their minds in the internet’s public square is wholly un-American. Remember always:  Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and forcing these dangerous ideas back underground is a surefire way to be blindsided by them when they rise again in a new, never-before-seen form. The evils of censorship aside, there is another alarming trend within this trend, however.  It seems as though only certain conspiracy theories are now considered taboo…namely those emanating from the right side of the aisle. For instance, when Beto O’Rourke tells an audience that he’s not sure how legitimate the 2016 election was, that’s just fine. While appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, O’Rourke dropped a bombshell opinion of his. After referencing the Russian breach of the voting systems in two counties in Florida, host Joy Reid asked, “Do you have confidence that the 2016 election was not impacted in terms of, not just the use of propaganda on American voters, but literally that the electoral systems weren’t breached and that Donald Trump was elected fairly?” O’Rourke answered, “I don’t have complete confidence. In part because of what you just shared about Florida, in part because we know from other secretaries of state in other states in the union that their systems were breached. We don’t know if vote tallies were changed, but that alone should be cause for concern.” Of course, several lengthy and in-depth investigations into this very possibility have been conducted, including the 22-month long, $30 million probe helmed by Robert Mueller. None of these…

TOLERANT LEFT: Author Asks if Saudi Arabia Could Give Trump the Khashoggi Treatment

More violent dog whistles from the radical left are emerging as Washington’s dysfunction approaches critical mass.

Fran Lebowitz

For as tolerant as the liberal left claims to be, they sure do want a lot of harm to come to the President and the republican party. This “resistance” attitude is something straight out of Hollywood, which makes sense since much of this violent and anti-American rhetoric is being spurned on by wealthy celebrities who have not a care in the world. Just two weeks after Kathy Griffin posted an incredibly gory image of herself having figuratively beheaded a facsimile of the President, a former Bernie Sanders campaign staffer attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team. We must always remember that there are consequences for these sorts of political outbursts, particularly at a time in which our nation is so divided. So why on earth would author Fran Lebowtiz suggest that the President be killed on a public forum such as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher? Lebowtiz began her rant by saying that “impeachment would be just the beginning of what [President Trump] deserves”. She added, “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, we should turn him over to the Saudis, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter. Maybe they could do the same for him.” It took until the main program had ended for Lebowitz to backtrack, likely fearing an ugly visit from the Secret Service. Later, during the “Overtime” segment, Lebowitz said, “I didn’t realize that I said it. … I regret saying it.” She added, “I did not mean that, and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it…they misinterpret everything. Why should they stop with me?” Sorry Fran – there’s nothing to misinterpret here. Also, as an author, the idea that Lebowitz somehow wasn’t calculating the words that she was using is absurd…
