The newest establishment darling of the Right, US Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), has rushed to John McCain’s defense after he was hammered by President Trump for colluding with the deep state and the Democratic Party to undo lawful results of the 2016 elections.
Crenshaw, who has already earned the moniker McCain 2.0, has been one of the most vocal critics of Trump’s non-interventionist foreign policy. Crenshaw clearly favors a more hawkish, belligerent foreign policy approach similar to that of the late Arizona maverick.
There is just no reason to be talking about Senator McCain after he has passed. He is not your poltical enemy Mr. President.

Crenshaw is recycling the old neocon era line that “we have to fight them over there so we don’t fight them over here” that made the George W. Bush administration such a laughingstock over a decade ago.
The situation in Syria does not warrant complete withdrawal. We can’t effectively maintain security or intelligence collection from Iraqi bases.
We go there so that they don’t come here, it’s that simple. Hold the line.https://t.co/bAbX8CtpEL

@RandPaul is giving the President bad advice.
There are those of us who have sacrificed for our nation, who know the importance of this terrorist threat and the need to stay vigilant.

Crenshaw has issued several op-eds through the mainstream media to counter-signal the President and his foreign policy directives. Shortly after Trump announced he was removing troops from Syria, Crenshaw wrote a piece for the Washington Post that closely echoed the McCain “100 years” approach of endless war.
He actually brought up Osama bin Laden, who was built up with US military backing to fight the Soviets in an Afghan proxy war, as a reason to meddle in the Middle East. We need to create more Osamas to stop the Osamas of the world, Crenshaw seems to believe.
The Texas Representative claims falsely that Obama pulled the plug on Iraq when that never actually happened, and it was this non-event – not the unconstitutional neocon-led invasions – that caused so much calamity in the Middle East. This talking point may be convenient for partisan Republicans wishing to whitewash GOP complicity in creating havens for Islamic terrorism abroad, but it does not match up with the reality of the situation.
Crenshaw also conveniently neglected to mention how regime change operations in Iraq and Libya created the power vacuum in the first place allowing groups like ISIS to rise.
It was only after President Trump cut off Obama’s policies of supporting Islamic terror groups in Syria that ISIS could be crushed. Stopping the meddling is what achieved the results, not intervention like Crenshaw claims. The same goes for North Korea where Trump is achieving the impossible through engagement and diplomacy.
Crenshaw’s military service record is admirable, and he does seem to have Trump’s back on the immigration issue. The man is undeniably an American hero, but when it comes to foreign policy, he is much more in line with neocons Bush and McCain than he is with Trump and his ‘America First’ agenda.
House Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop
Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.
House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.
They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).
“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”
“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.
However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.
Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:
Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.
Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.
According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.
Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…
President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.
“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”
Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
