I know, I know… a lot of videos lately. But my main workstation is busy draining a bunch of little disks into an 8 TB disk… and there’s been some cleanup and reorganizing involved…
So here’s Bongino with a heck of a show today.
First up, he covers the Not-Impeachment Committee Circus run by Nadler. I’ve watched a couple of chunks of it (over an hour) and a LOT of it is just painful. He’s clearly just acting like a petulant little Troll conducting a deception fishing campaign, and not making it happen. If you are into that kind of thing (and don’t mind sitting through lots and lots of mind numbing procedural issues) it is worth it to find the feeds.
But Bongino gets a few choice cuts to give a flavor of the high points. There were a lot of others I liked just as well.
Then Bongino takes on Beto “What 2nd Amendment” the Master Beto… Turns out Australia has had NO statistical reduction in crime due to their gun ban law (it reduced at the same rate as before the law AND at the same rate in the USA). PLUS, all the things they attribute to “fewer guns” is just daft as there are now MORE GUNS in Australia (just different ones… same thing in California, BTW… we all have much prettier guns now ;-) So saying “Fewer homicides due to”… must really be logically followed by “…more guns” ;-)
Then a wonderful word is coined. “Crimate Change”. Clearly the lower gun deaths and reduced crime is from Crimate Change ;-)
Then at the end, turns out there are photos of Omar with her brother / husband after 2012 (when she said she never saw him again), there’s a photo of him holding his “niece” the day after Omar gave birth, and there’s a marriage licence of her sister giving their fathers name as the same as her brother / husband’s father and as was in a tweet Omar deleted…
Somehow I think this isn’t going away…
FWIW, I recommend that any who might have to be grilled by any committee watch how Cory Lewendowski handled it. Just stellar. Asked questions like “Did you say this to Muller?” his answer was “Can you point to the page in the Muller report to refresh my memory?” and then if it was on the page say “I testified honestly and stand by the Muller report”. Asked “Did the President tell you…” was reliably met with “I will not divulge the content of conversations with the President as he has Executive Privilege”. And when they tried to entrap him with tapes of news interviews his only answer was “I have always testified honestly when under oath but I owe no duty of honest to the media, they regularly lie.” Oh, when they would quote things from one of his books, say “Do you have a copy of the book to refresh my memory?” and when they would say no, “You ought to buy one, available at major bookstores. I stand by my book.”
He’s very good at answering while denying them the win AND avoiding any “obstruction” nonsense. The key bit seems to be “That was a long time ago and my memory is not as accurate now of more distant events. I stand by the record from where I was under oath, do you have it to refresh my memory? And the media lies and not being under oath I owe them no duty of honesty. Things to learn.
