Since Robert Mueller came up empty in his quest to prove that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians, the weight of politically-motivated investigations into Trump now rests with New York City prosecutors and Democrats in Congress led by Jerry Nadler of New York.
Trump administration officials and other figures in Trump-World have been treating congressional Democrats with appropriate exasperation and disrespect.
Here are some of the funniest moments from the MAGA movement’s testimonies on the Hill:
Attorney general William Barr was very open about the fact that he was suffering fools during his Capitol Hill testimony.

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s “I believe you’re supposed to take the gavel and bang it” retort to Maxine Waters should definitely go down in history as one of the great slams by a witness against an interrogator. Mnuchin has been acting as President Trump’s envoy to China, which has agreed to buy more than a trillion dollars in additional American goods though Trump has yet to finalize the deal. So, Mnuchin clearly doesn’t have time for these hearings — and he made that clear.
Steven Mnuchin reacting to Maxine Waters is the funniest thing you haven’t seen today.

President Trump’s recent acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker deserves a lot of credit for kicking off this “MAGA people smacking down Democrats while testifying” trend. Whitaker telling Nadler his time is up is one for the ages.
MAGA movement visionary Candace Owens delivered another victory for President Donald Trump’s America Tuesday in front of Congress as her likeminded patriots rack up an impressive streak of wins.
Robert Mueller is defeated, the national emergency for the Wall is upheld with a presidential veto of both parties in Congress, China is forking over more than a trillion dollars for American-made goods, and Herman Cain might very well be nominated for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.
But Candace’s smackdown of Democrats Jerry Nadler and Ted Lieu and others — who clearly underestimated her potential to throw down a drop-the-mic worldwide Truth bomb — is an endzone spike that truly matters. Candace Owens broke the fourth wall and kicked down the 2-D Narrative, announcing that we in the MAGA movement don’t have to play by their rules anymore.
Because America cannot be divided.
The Democrats — clinging to their mealy-mouthed defense of blackface or KKK-festooned governor Ralph Northam and blackface-wearing attorney general Mark Herring — and chastened by their Jussie Smollett hoax, which Chris Rock shamed them for, have pretty much nothing left.
Their game is Narrative, and their narrative for so long was that Trump supporters are racists. But they couldn’t pin that tag on the Covington Catholic kids, and they can’t pin it on Trump’s America anymore. The American people are too smart.
Candace Owens: "It's pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black ppl are stupid & will not pursue the full clip.”
Nadler scolds Candace tells her to not call Lieu stupid.

Populism — like the kind practiced by President Trump’s movement — is the collective realization of an energy that all people innately have, especially in America. And while the system tries to crush our spirit, our spirit will always push back.
The American people have the weapon of Truth. The dividers in the media and the political system can only cling desperately to the purse strings of fear.
As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote in his “Antidotes for Fear” (a quality that Candace has none of):
Normal fear protects us; abnormal fear paralyzes us. Normal fear motivates us to improve our individual and collective welfare; abnormal fear constantly poisons and distorts our inner lives. Our problem is not to be rid of fear but rather to harness and master it…
Courage and cowardice are antithetical. Courage is an inner resolution to go forward in spite of obstacles and frightening situations; cowardice is a submissive surrender to circumstance. Courage breeds creative self-affirmation; cowardice produces destructive self-abnegation. Courage faces fear and thereby masters it; cowardice represses fear and is thereby mastered by it. Courageous men never lose the zest for living even though their life situation is zestless; cowardly men, overwhelmed by the uncertainties of life, lose the will to live. We must constantly build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear…
“Hate is rooted in fear, and the only cure for fear-hate is love…
Hatred and bitterness can never cure the disease of fear; only love can do that. Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.”
Dr. King passage ends
I want to finish here with the words of a man named H.K. Edgerton, a black man in a Confederate uniform who stood guard at the Silent Sam memorial in North Carolina when leftists tore that statue down. He refused to accept the Democrat media narrative that seeks to divide us. Candace Owens shared this man’s message to the world, and I’m grateful.
As their Narrative breaks down, we are left with an abiding Truth. We are left with a common purpose. We are left with souls — bloodied and battered, perhaps, but resilient by the grace of God. And brave citizens who light our path in the darkness…
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
