“Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime.”
– Lavrentiy Beria, head of Joseph Stalin’s Secret Police
Get Trump, the ongoing daytime drama produced by Democrats for Democrats, was renewed for another season – at taxpayer expense, like PBS. It’s not like spiking crime, inflation, illegal border crossings and brewing nuclear war should occupy the Dems’ time.
In the previous season Trump threw a hamburger at the wall (something you could do before food inflation under Biden). Then he choked a Secret Service agent driving his car. In the first season, you will remember, Trump urinated on beds with prostitutes and porn stars in Russia while he was over there on a business meeting with Putin, planning to overthrow our democracy.
For the new season, there is stuff coming that is so fantastic, Adam Schiff hasn’t even made it up yet.
But all is not well for The Committee. Saturday Night Live, in a rare feat of real, meaningful humor, lampooned the January 6th Committee and its comical Congressional members this past weekend. If you lose SNL, since they will cover for 99% of liberal misdeeds, then you lose your media cover. It is like being in a ground war with no air cover.
When they are not raising taxes, the House and the Senate start their daily sessions with the Pledge of Allegiance, quickly followed by an impeachment investigation of Donald J. Trump. While he has been gone from D.C. for two years, Trump still lives rent-free in what’s left of Democrats’ minds.
Maggie Haberman of the DNC’s propaganda wing at The New York Times reported that “Former President Donald Trump has told aides he might comply with a subpoena to testify before the Jan. 6 Committee, as long as he can do so live.” This is so they cannot easily edit his testimony.
If he does not testify, I hear Committee members have Amber Heard in the wings as their backup witness.
The January 6 hearings allowed no cross examination of witnesses, no defense witnesses, no opposing evidence to be presented, and allowed no members on the Committee panel who hadn’t already voted for impeachment. Hitler and Stalin called the hearings “masterful,” giving them the highest rating a fascist can give: 10 Lavrentiy Berias on Yelp and You Tube.
These one-sided hearings have been going on so long, wasting so much of the nation’s money and short attention span, that they should quit. It’s akin to the longest drum solo by a band you never wanted to see. Ever.
Keep in mind, the FBI Director and other federal “Deep Staters” will not say under oath that they did not have operatives instigating the Capitol riots. In fact, those people paying attention have more questions for our federal government than for Trump. The only person killed that day was an unarmed female protestor, shot by the mall cops of the Capitol who normally get Schumer and Pelosi their lunches and rides to their private jets. These guys made the Keystone Kops look like Navy SEALs.
The entrenched bureaucrats in D.C. hate Trump for fear he will cut their agencies and end their financial gravy train. One very hot day in Washington when the air conditioners went out at the Capitol, the January 6th witnesses and FBI HQ Democrat shills said nice things about Trump just for the cold stares.
The stupid thing about “getting Trump” is that the Dems are only making him stronger. Folks see what D.C. does to people. You have to think, “Could they come for me next?”.
They may be knocking out of the 2024 presidential race the only Republican they could beat. As usual, their hate informs their illogical thinking. This whole mess is about two things: (1) Democrats trying to confirm the legitimate election of their man, Joe Biden, and (2) beating up Trump about him losing in 2020. Who knew that two men, almost 80, could hold an election this long?
AOC, who by her own account was killed on January 6th at her location 9 blocks from the riots, still talks of her fright that day.
We all remember where we were when a man in face paint, dressed in a bearskin Brave Heart outfit, almost overthrew our democracy by monkeying with Nancy Pelosi’s podium. I remember where I was that famous day 20 months ago: filling up my Yukon with $1.98 gas.
