Biggest news last week occurred when Attorney General William Barr went to Capitol Hill to appear before the Congressional Senate to review his budget request. The hearings quickly developed into serious attacks on Barr for his handling of the Mueller report.
Barr drove the Democrat Senate members into a tizzy when he said he believed that there was “spying” on the Trump campaign. In addition he said he would investigate that situation to determine if there was legal justification for the spying. After his comment the Dems tried to get Barr to soften his expression and urged him to call it surveillance. Barr said that he would determine if the surveillance was authorized or unauthorized.
Among the many questions shot at Barr by the Democrats were about whether or not Congress should have an unredacted Mueller report to look at. Barr insisted that he would submit his report in accordance with the existing law. One of the Dems asked Barr if he was worried that someone in Congress would leak information if the unredacted report was given to them. Barr replied in the affirmative. However the A.G. said that he would be willing to meet in private with certain members after the report was made public.
The spying comment drove most of the mainstream media into a hyperbolic frenzy, especially the “throw up the leg” Chris Matthews.
Since the Mueller report has found no collusion by Trump, the once Knight in Shining Armor (Mueller) for the Democrats has now been tossed into the junkyard of political oblivion.
The Dems new strategy all across the media is to attack Barr as a toady for Trump and will do everything they can to disparage his report when it is issued. ***
Apparently the new guru for the Democrat Presidential candidates is the race baiter Al Sharpton, who recently hosted a conclave for a number of the Dem candidates. Each and every one of the aspirants spoke in one voice kowtowing to Sharpton’s questions regarding principles that he espoused.
Sharpton is the same individual that served as President Obamas chief adviser on race relations and made numerous trips to the White House.***
Speaking of President Obama he finally resurfaced, this time in Berlin, where he warned the progressive Democrat candidates for President to be careful in their rhetoric lest they morph into a circular firing squad. In his talk Obama mentioned I or me some 400 times. At no time did he ever come to the aid of his former Vice President Joe Biden, who is under attack from all sides because of his touchy-feely approach to women***
Latest Democrat to declare his candidacy for President is Representative Eric Swalwell of California. He is the same person who said that as a savvy prosecutor he could easily prove that there was Trump-Russian collusion. In his TV appearances he seems to be very full of himself. Along with Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Jerry Nadler Swalwell forms a dynamic trio that has the ability to supersede the entire Mueller investigation.
On the distaff side there is another insidious trio of freshman Representatives in the persons of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, IIhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. These three roam about the halls of Congress like three loose cannons and garner constant publicity from the mainstream media every time they open their mouths. A.O-C is the author of the Gangrene New Deal and her latest solution to climate change is that people should stop having babies. Omar is the famous anti-Semite who caused a vote in Congress condemning all hate speech. Tlaib has the foulest mouth of the three.
This threesome has all but put the befuddled Nancy Pelosi in a corner where she cannot find a logical way to whip them into shape***
It must have been the blonde wig that Alec Baldwin wore in his SNL appearances spoofing Trump that had an effect on his brain since rumor now is he is considering running for President. If he does declare he will join the most crowded field in history and might be joined by Oprah and Hillary.
The once Golden Boy of the Dems, Beto O’Rourke is beginning to fade away and is being replaced by the Mayor of South Bend, who is now the darling of the left wing media and political pundits. Proof of Beto disappearing was shown lately on TV when he appeared in a large hall with only less than 100 spectators to follow his flailing arms and his speech comparing the Trump administration to the Nazi’s.
