I was watching a new Fox video (live stream) about 1:49:– long from Nadler’s Faux Committee Impeach Screech Show, and while it was nice to see the Republicans on the committee illustrate his slime and lies, it got boring after about 45 minutes as you just know Nadler doesn’t give a damn and is just going to throw out all precedent, House rules, and any morality & decency in search of the “IMPEACH!!!!!” headline.
So I swapped over to Bongino for some relief. His show today is a good one.
He lays out some fine details on how Flynn’s lawyer is getting 302s and other docs per Mifsud and what all that means.
Covers the way the Deceptive CNN (Communist News Network…) lies for effect. They have a story trying to tie “Right wing extremists” to the “KKK” and 911 Jihadies. Without ever bothering to mention that the KKK was a creation of the Southern Democrats and that the Republicans were the party of black liberation (and had the first Black in congress…). Propaganda, it only works in ignorance. He then goes on to show how many blacks are fairly conservative and there’s ever more of that cohort waking up to the DNC Plantation and thinking maybe they belong on the other side. Something about a job and a mortgage and paying taxes maybe? ;-)
So it’s worth the hour to watch it, IMHO. It’s a nice summary of the “news of the day” with sanity injected and BS excised.
FWIW, the Nadler garbage is them passing a committee resolution to set out the rules for an “impeachment investigation” even though the House has voted down an impeachment proceeding. What was “resolved” mostly amounted to the standard committee rules and rights. As one of the Republicans point out, this was only for the purposes of ginning up headlines about impeachment, not anything real.
Sure, there will be dozens of “sub-committees” assigned to create chaos and demand every possible document and communications on the planet, trying to lay “obstruction” traps at every turn; to create fraudulent news headlines for CNN & MSNBC (Mis-information, Smear, Nothing But Crap network…/sarc;) to plaster 24 / 7. But most of the nation is just really really fed up with the endless histrionics and Muller was outed as a hit job; so we just want to move on already. So I think it isn’t going to work as they intended. Frankly, I’d vote against Nadler just to stop the endless whining and send donkey face packing. Tired of seeing him. Just NOT entertaining.
Somehow the Democrats are being so DIM they just can’t see that most of us are just sick of their BS Games. You’d think that after “Cankles” Hillary was such a failure, that maybe they’d look at a Trump Rally and see just how enthusiastic everyone is. Those folks are having FUN! The Dismal Doom In Our Time Dems, not so much… Or maybe they would bother to keep up on any one of dozens of blogs, shows, etc. “outing” their horrid lousy lies. But they don’t. Just gamely plugging along on the same-old-same-old smear, lie, lawfare, and deception campaign.
But once you see it for what it is, you can not un-see it; and ever larger number of folks have seen it, and are seeing it. You would think ratings dropping below 1 Million ( 1/340 th of the USA…) would be a clue… And I’d wager most of them are DNC insiders, family & friends, and folks 1/2 drunk in an airport bar wishing they could change the channel.
“News” from the usual suspects has become bought and paid for propaganda; the people have noticed; and We The People are “disintermediating” our news. We’re skipping the “Gatekeepers” and going to individual news providers who report source documents and materials.
Freedom, it’s a thing. Freedom to find your own news is also a thing. Freedom to listen to the smaller voices who are not bought and paid for.
For me, I’m so sick of the Democratic Smear Machine there’s no way I’m voting Democrat again. I have voted Democrat several times, including for Obama and Sanders in the California Primary. I’m a registered independent since the RINO Insiders also offended me. But I’m thinking if the party aligns behind Trump, well, maybe I will register Republican… IF they get a little closer to my basic Libertarian ideals. But Democrat? No way. They are just too slimy, smarmy, deceitful and busy “lying for effect”. I value truth more than anything else, and they run from the truth at every opportunity. I suspect that is the legacy of The Clinton Machine…
So that’s my opinion on things as they stand today. Subject to change with time and willing to embrace the Democrats again once they get their head on straight and start supporting traditional American Ideals (and the American people). As long as they are playing from the Marxist / Alinsky / Soros playbooks, not so much.
Update: “Come to the dark side, we have cookies!”
I just love it when folks who’ve soaked up the Leftist Hate Ideology suddenly discovers that conservatives and Republicans are actually rather polite nice people. From their prior POV those folks are on the “Dark Side”. I’m reminded of a bumper sticker “Come to the Dark Side… We have cookies!” ;-)
So as something of evidence for my above opinions, here’s Tim Pool about a Democratic Presidential candidate and her discovery that Fox News is nice folks, and that Republicans are not bad people. With the sidebar that she has also discovered the preferred mode of the Democrats as negative mean attack and smear, seasoned with lies.
Oh the delicious irony of watching the “woke” actually wake… ;-)
Marianne, welcome to “The Dark Side”. Better polish your armour as you are about to be relentlessly vilified. You are now a “Racist, Homophobic, Misogynistic, anti-Semite, etc. etc. I forget the rest”… Horrible Person, by definition (of The Left).
Why? Because you strayed in even the most minute way from The Received Narrative. Worse, you actually said something nice about Republicans and Fox News. Far worse, you stated fair criticism of your own party.
The Good News:
We on “The Dark Side” are having a pretty good time. You are welcome to join the party. It will seem strange at first since nobody is busy telling you what you MUST believe, or attacking your for holding your own opinions. You can have whatever positions and opinions you like. At most, we’ll discuss them with you (usually politely). Oh, and cookies and milk are on the first table, beer and wine on the second. Pot is BYOB (Bring Your Own Bud…). Welcome to The Dark Side ;-)
