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.

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.

Joe Biden Wants Congress To Ban Chokeholds And Work On Police Reform

Published

on

Former Vice President and current Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden has called on Congress to take up the fight for police reform now instead of waiting until November. These comments come just a day after President Trump encouraged the use of military force to try and bring the chaos reigning in many cities across the country as violent protests explode, leading to riots, looting, and even shootings. Biden wants to see lawmakers ban the use of chokeholds by law enforcement officers with a federal law. Along with this he wants to see a national list of use-of-force best practices and for military grade equipment to stop being transferred over to local police departments. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If Mitch McConnell can bring in the Senate to confirm Trump’s unqualified judicial nominees who will run roughshod over our Constitution now, it’s time to pass legislation that will give true meaning to our constitutional promise of equal protection under the law,” Biden said. Biden then went on to vow that he would make dealing with institutional racism one of his top priorities during his 100 days in office, should he defeat Trump in the upcoming presidential election. He also restated that he supports a police oversight commission. “Bad cops should be dealt with severely and swiftly,” Biden stated. “We set up in the Justice Department the ability for the Civil Rights Division to go in and look at the practices and policies of police departments. That’s why we were able to stop stop and frisk,” Biden told leaders gathered at the Bethel AME Church. “Reestablish that with more teeth in it because we also have to fundamentally change the way in which police are trained.” How can Biden claim to deal with institutional racism? Racism is a…

Biden Delivers Speech On Racism, Says Trump Is ‘Part Of The Problem’

Published

During remarks delivered by Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden concerning the rioting, looting, and deadly protests happening across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police officers, the former vice president couldn’t resist sliding in a big shot at President Trump. “The president of the United States must be part of the solution, not part of the problem,” Biden said during the speech Tuesday morning. “But this president today is part of the problem and accelerates it.” The speech, so far, is the most direct assault on the president’s handling of the current civil unrest rocking the country after Floyd’s tragic death in Minneapolis on May 25. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “When he tweeted the words when the looting starts the shooting starts, they weren’t the words of the president, they were the words of a racist Miami police chief in the 1960s,” Biden said, referencing Trump’s controversial tweets over the last week. “The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us, leadership that brings us together. Leadership that can recognize pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for a long time,” he said. “There’s no place for violence, no place for looting, or destroying property or destroying churches or destroying businesses.” As this was a prime opportunity for Biden to chit-chat about the upcoming presidential election later this year, the presumptive nominee promised that he would “seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country.” What that entails or how he plans to do such a thing still remain a mystery.
