The Russian Briar Patch

Published

on

When Br’er Rabbit was caught by being glued to a tar baby, then tied to a pole by Br’er Fox, he pleaded, “Oh, do anything you want but please don’t throw me in that briar patch!” Convinced this was the worst thing he could do to Br’er Rabbit, the foolish Br’er Fox did just that. Br’er Rabbit used the briars to scrape off the tar and escape.

For a month the fake news media and Democrats have been mumbling “special prosecutor” or “special investigator” and most on the right (though not Donald Trump himself) have been recoiling, thinking it would be the beginning of the end.

Well, it is . . . for the Democrats and their fake news Russia meme. But also, possibly, for a host of other baddies, including James Comey, John Podesta, and even Hillary Clinton.

The appointment of Robert Mueller as a special investigator—a career Washington guy, but one that pretty much both sides agree is a no-nonsense, by-the-book investigator—led many on the left to celebrate their end times scenario. Except this is looking like “Left Behind.”

Mueller almost immediately confirmed that his investigation has a broad scope, implying he would be looking at the leaks as well as the “Russian” stuff. But once those doors open, the leaky trail will lead to the DNC, Podesta, and Clinton, and possibly even Seth Rich. Meanwhile, Mueller (to the shock of the left) requested the Congressional/Senate committees to stand down. From a pragmatic perspective, it was idiotic to have three or four (everyone has lost count) Congressional investigations going on, trying to interview the same witnesses, get the same documents, and otherwise stepping on each other’s, er, Johnsons. Mueller’s stand down request will be very hard, even impossible to ignore. Congress and the Senate cannot even appear to want to “get to the bottom” of this if they are actively standing in the way. My guess is they will comply. This was nearly the worst possible news for several reasons. First, the Democrats just lost control of the evidence. Mueller and his team now control that. One may suspect Mueller for some of his swamp ties, but there will be no Adam Schiffs or Maxine Waters involved, squashing unpleasant documents or denying the appearance of troublesome witnesses.

Second, the Mueller request now means that Congress, freed from these investigations, must actually do its damned job! That won’t sit well with many, but they have no excuse now. Mueller just may have re-elected the GOP House in 2018 against their will.

Third, by taking over the investigation, Mueller stopped 99% of the leaks. Special investigations are not known for their leaks. Regardless of which side these investigators are on, they are extremely protective of their vaunted power, and use it ruthlessly against anyone who dumps documents—and that includes indictments. Now, to be sure, Trump must play along and stay off Twitter in regards to the investigation itself, but he handled that issue well in his first post-Mueller-appointment question: “Next question.” If Team Trump sticks to “no comment,” the fake news media will be hard pressed to keep asking the same thing after 100 “no comments.”

Then there is Comey, who said he would testify before the Senate. Bad move, Jim. He will certainly have willing little orc-allies in the Senate who will ask setup questions, but sooner or later he will get a question on the memo.

Senator Foghorn Leghorn: “Was there a memo?”

Think, very hard, Jim, before you answer. If you say “yes,” Leghorn will demand you produce it. Then it better say what you said it said.

Say he did have a memo and say it did record that Trump said “I hope . . .” Next question from Leghorn:

“Did you take that as obstruction of justice?” Welcome to the tar baby.

If Comey says “Yes,” he is himself guilty of obstructing justice by not reporting. “Hello Mr. Mueller. Oh, is that an indictment in your hand?”

Yes, but what about Trump? Trump’s response would be “When I said ‘I hope’ I was just expressing the hope that we could get the investigation finished, wrapped up, and move on. I wasn’t referring to stopping the investigation.” Really, really hard to prove obstruction on that. Rather, damn near impossible. Meanwhile, Comey is being fitted for the orange jumpsuit.

But if Comey says, “No I did not take Trump’s words as obstruction” he is free—but Trump is totally off the hook.

And Comey will be asked if he told Trump that he was not the target of the investigation. If he says “no” and Trump has tapes, hello orange jumpsuit. If he says “yes,” once again Trump is totally cleared.

Throughout all this, Mueller has the authority to go after leaks, which will inevitably end up at the DNC. It’s possible that a Carter Page or Mike Flynn will end up with a really low Dinesh D’Souza type charge, but nothing will attach to Trump because after a year of the FBI and CIA investigating Trump under Obama, they got zilch. But when Mueller digs into the DNC stuff, there may be a thread leading to Seth Rich. Then it will be the Democrats and Hillary Clinton screaming for the briar patch.

VIDEO: Nancy Pelosi Thinks The Wall Is A ‘Luxury’? She Can’t Even Keep Her Own Party Behind Her!

Published

on

Democrat House speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that President Donald Trump’s insistence on a border wall is a luxury the country can no longer afford.

Pelosi is having a very difficult time during this government shutdown, as I explain:

Here are some reasons Nancy Pelosi is struggling:

  1. The Democrat “Problem Solvers Caucus” met with President Trump without her

The Democrat problem solvers left the door open to “common ground” but still requested that the government re-open before that common ground can be discovered.

Here are what the Democrat problem solvers said about the meeting. The Democrat problem solvers include “Josh Gottheimer, Thomas Suozzi, Vincente Gonzalez, Anthony Brindisi, Dean Phillips, Max Rose, and Abigail Spanberger,” but no Pelosi.

“Over the last weeks, we have been listening to our constituents and speaking with our fellow Members of Congress — in both parties and in both chambers. There is strong agreement across the aisle and around the country: We must reopen the government.  Our security, safety, and economy have been compromised, and millions of families are suffering,” the Democrat problem solvers stated.

“There is also strong agreement that if we reopen the government, the possibility exists to work together and find common ground to tackle some of our country’s toughest problems and fix them. But that conversation can only begin in earnest once the government is reopened. We accepted the White House’s invitation to meet today to convey that message,” the Democrat problem solvers said.

2. Democrats keep saying good things about the Wall, without saying the word “Wall”

Democrat congressman Hakeem Jeffries said on the House floor that Democrats “are prepared to have a conversation about infrastructure on the border” and “a conversation about our broken immigration system.”

Jeffries is the latest Democrat to suggest open-mindedness on compromise so long as Democrats can use a different term than “Wall.”

Jeffries said that Democrats are not prepared to have these conversations during President Trump’s supposedly vindictive government shutdown, but they might have no choice.

California Democrat Katie Hill went on Fox News to talk about Democrat openness to “physical barriers,” and Rep. Cheri Bustos expressed openness to a “partial Wall.”

3. Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got onto the House Financial Services Committee

Here are Ocasio-Cortez’s stated objectives for her tenure on the committee: “Personally, I’m looking forward to digging into the student loan crisis, examining for-profit prisons/ICE detention, and exploring the development of public & postal banking. To start.”

4. Pelosi is still haunted by her ignoring of the Angel families who visited her office

5. President Trump guaranteed back pay to furloughed workers, shifting blame for the shutdown to Democrats

President Trump signed the Government Employee Fair Treatment Act of 2019.

With the workers assured pay, the Democrats are squarely in the center of attention. The government can only be re-opened with their commitment to funding the border wall.

Now, every day that the shutdown drags on and workers don’t get paid can be perceived to be the fault of Democrats. If Democrats fund the border wall, then the workers can get paid again.

6. Her plot to postpone the State of the Union by blocking Trump from the House floor was ridiculed

Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen thanked the Secret Service and her own agency, DHS, for their commitment to secure the State of the Union address to be delivered by President Donald Trump.

“The Department of Homeland Security and the US Secret Service are fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union,” stated Nielsen.

Democrat House speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing to postpone Trump’s State of the Union, citing supposed security deficiencies caused by the government shutdown.

But the Secret Service, as always, is prepared to serve with honor.

Democrats are running out of tactics to apply pressure on President Donald Trump to end the government shutdown without a Wall.

7. Chuck Schumer Did Not Have An Inspiring Press Conference Outside the Capitol

Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats held up posters of furloughed government workers outside the Capitol Wednesday.

Republicans including Rep. Mo Brooks and Louie Gohmert have already shown photos of the victims of illegal alien crime on the House floor, including a 13-year old girl who was beheaded by an illegal alien.

Schumer’s statement ignores those victims of illegal alien crime. Now that President Trump has signed the back pay bill, the blame for the shutdown shifts to Democrats, who keep workers from getting their paychecks through their refusal to fund the southern border Wall. Schumer held up a poster of a man with a heart ailment, but did not address the Angel families who arrived at Nancy Pelosi’s office this week while Pelosi ignored them.

“Open the government,” some of the Democrats briefly chanted.

8. President Trump refuses to back down

“We’re going to stay out for a long time, if we have to. We’ll be out for a long time,” President Trump said on a conference call with some of his supporters.

“People are very impressed with how well government is working with the circumstances that we’re under,” the president stated on the call.
