And so Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff take the Republic into a dangerous defile on a dark day as they engineer a House resolution with rules for a medieval-style inquiry on the existence of phantoms. The phantom du jour, of course, is the fabled “whistleblower,” a CIA ectoplasm identified by everybody and his uncle in Swampland as one Eric Ciaramella, 33, a former Joe Biden staffer, Obama White House low-level NSC holdover, and John Brennan “asset” deeply involved in Ukrainian pranks during the 2016 election and subsequent disinformation leakage to the media since the early days of the Trump administration.

     The “whistleblower’s” trail winds through every shadowy turn of RussiaGate to the current phantasmagoria of UkraineGate, and connects the principal misdeeds carried out along the way including Hillary Clinton’s devious operations with Fusion GPS, the Comey-led FBI’s illegal entanglement with CIA spying on US citizens (including occupants of the White House), and lately the mendacious maneuvers of House Intel Committee chair Mr. Schiff.

     The notion that Mr. Ciamarella’s identity will remain officially hidden much longer is a joke, since his “complaint” lies at the center of the impeachment process underway, and sooner or later he will be compelled to make public testimony — unless Ms. Pelosi’s House majority votes to rename the USA the Haunted Forest of North America. And when this unmasked phantom finally faces legitimate cross examination his mischief will be plain for all to see. Do you also suppose that Mr. Ciaramella’s revealed adventures in perfidy have not been noticed by the attorney general, Mr. Barr, and his deputy John Durham?

     It seems obvious that the Democrats’ mad rush to this wholly irregular impeachment happened in direct, proportional response to the encroaching danger to them posed by the DOJ inspector general’s imminent report and the news a week ago that the AG upgraded his “review” of all things RussiaGate to a criminal inquiry, with grand juries assembled to process indictments. In the meantime, Rep. Schiff’s secret proceedings in the House basement seem to have produced little besides evidence that contradicts the premises of his wicked enterprise. One by one, his witnesses have been busted — Mr. Taylor, Col. Vindman, Mr. Morrison, and all the rest — in Mr. Schiff’s quixotic effort to demonstrate that the transcript of Mr. Trump’s phone call to Mr. Zelensky says something other than what can be read plainly in its pages.

     It’s hard to feature how the House might convey their garbage barge of obvious falsehoods to the Senate — the risks are so perilous — but if they dare to, I hope it leads to an actual trial, where due process of law will obtain and, for the first time, a long list of malicious actors in this epic of treachery will actually have to answer for their treasonous activities. Much of what has been documented the past two years about the coup to oust Mr. Trump never made it to the pages of The New York Times, WashPo, and the cable news networks, and may come as a shock to people who read and watch nothing else. For instance, the reportage of Paul Sperry about Mr. Ciaramella at Real Clear Politics this past week, which ripped the mask off this fake pimpernel, has been utterly ignored by those news outlets.

     You could read the desperate anxiety on Speaker Pelosi’s fright-mask face in her various fleeting public statements since August. She might suspect that this long-running enterprise of sedition leads to a political fiasco more violent than anything seen in the USA since the Civil War. Or just perhaps she is foolishly oblivious, misinformed, and badly advised. If we are fortunate, the damage to come can be confined to the death of the Democratic Party. It’s hard to imagine how they will survive the emergence of the truth about exactly what has gone on at their bidding since the primary elections of 2016.

     The House of Representatives goes on hiatus now for about ten days. There’s a pretty good chance the DOJ IG Horowitz’s report will drop before they return. There’s also more than a fair chance that it will contain a load of damning information about matters connected one way or another to the impeachment inquiry. I doubt the mainstream media will be able to evade reporting on it. There are also indications that the long ordeal of General Michael Flynn’s prosecution is about to end in a debacle for Mr. Mueller’s gang of attorneys, who have been concealing their turpitudes from Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court since last December. When that case blows up, the reverberations will thunder through every cranny of Washington DC and everything on the battlefield will look changed to the people of this land.

    And the sad thing is, I really do think the Democrats would have had a shot at beating Trump next November if they just would have wiped the foam off their mouths and sat tight until then. 🙁

      Venus–

      The Democrats do not deserve to win an election. After witnessing the dodgy, crooked way in which they conduct their party’s caucuses here in Iowa, I just plain do not trust them.

      • venuspluto67 November 1, 2019 at 10:44 am #

        I’m not even a little surprised to hear that. That said, caucuses as opposed to primaries as a way of choosing the candidate is a system pretty subject to dodgyness. I heard some stories during the brief time I lived in Minnesota (which, if my memory serves me correctly, is switching to primary-system this year).

        • hmuller November 1, 2019 at 10:53 am #

          “Caucuses” sounds too much like “caucasian”. You must henceforth call them the “blaucuses”.

          There’s an interesting history of the caucus system in John Michael Greer’s Decline and Fall. It’s worth a read; returning to the full caucus system as we had in the 1920s would be an improvement.

      • capt spaulding November 1, 2019 at 11:21 am #

        sprawlcapital-
        Would that be similar to the dodgy, crooked way in which Mitch McConnell waited 1 1/2 years during the Obama administration before submitting Trump’s Supreme Court nomination to the Senate?

        • sprawlcapital November 1, 2019 at 12:22 pm #

          Are you saying two wrongs make a right? How about a race to the bottom between the two parties in terms of unethical behavior?

          • venuspluto67 November 1, 2019 at 1:00 pm #

            How about? That’s what’s happening!

          • Janos Skorenzy November 1, 2019 at 5:35 pm #

            The Left has to be stopped from dominating the Court again, as they did for so long. How do you think that happened? Fair play? They have no such scruples and if we’re smart, we won’t either.

            One more and we’ll have it. Deep State yes, but at least they want to keep America strong to fight for Israel. Deep State, Zionist faction.

            The real mystery is why American Neo-Cons turned against Trump. A possible third faction here?

          • capt spaulding November 1, 2019 at 7:27 pm #

            No, sprawl, two wrongs make two wrongs regardless of which party does it. That’s my point. I’m no great fan of either party’s ethics.

          • Iananna November 4, 2019 at 5:28 am #

            Or, as Nixon would say, ”if two wrongs don’t make a right, try three”.

        So what, the Republicans do? Both sides need to change. This seems so obvious yet so seldom is talked about, I find that peculiar.

        • benr November 4, 2019 at 8:52 am #

          The easiest way to have a conversation is to list what it is about each side we don’t like.
          Since the list is so damn long on the Democrat side it might be easier to list what we like about each side instead.
          Democrat side is easiest.
          List I like about Democrats:
          1:\

          Damn that was tough couldn’t come up with one thing.
          Republicans:
          1:\ Appear to stand for many of the things I believe in.

          Notice the word appears to because in action they don’t really stand for much of anything it would appear. They roll over to fast to Democrat demands.

    • DrTomSchmidt November 1, 2019 at 10:45 am #

      It seems impeachment is an admission that they cannot remove Trump by voting. I thought Trump was the weakest candidate in US history, except for the one who lost to him. All they had to do was do something for the white working class in PA, MI, and WI to win those states back and gain the White House.

      They chose instead to focus on Trump. Amazing. As one Dem said, if we are talking about Trump, we are losing.

      Meanwhile, the black unemployment rate hit a record low today. If tRump has any sense, he will make hay of this.

      • Walter B November 1, 2019 at 11:16 am #

        That’s a great point Doc and especially believable as they have zero viable candidates to rub against him. What I am thinking is that Hillary is behind this whole “remove Trump” campaign and that her leverage is the dirt that she surely has on them coupled with her ability to invoke the “Epstein Effect” (aka Foster’s Fate) to any that might try to stop her. With Trump out of the way, Rodan might very well be able to coerce enough votes to win in 2020. Ask Tulsi, she knows.

        • Sam Stone November 1, 2019 at 1:13 pm #

          Hey Walt, as I’ve stated here before I believe we have not yet seen the Democrats real candidate. They have til Spring. Also as I’ve said here I believe that candidate will be Michelle Obama. Just for shits and grins wouldn’t it be hilarious if at the last minute both Michelle and Hilary jumped in? Then Hils loses the nomination to M. It would be the first time on TV we would witness a person’s head actually explode.

          Another scenario could be M runs for prez with H as her running mate.

          One things for sure (I think) the Democratic leadership is smart enough to know that not a single one of their current candidates is worth a fat rat’s ass.

          Unless of course they think their business as usual cheating is all they need.

          • benr November 1, 2019 at 1:35 pm #

            Michelle Obama has ZERO experience to be President.
            Has publicly said she wants nothing to do with it and Barry would have a fit.

          • Sam Stone November 1, 2019 at 2:40 pm #

            @benr Since when does experience, much less intelligence or common sense, have anything to do with public office?

            Remember when Dem Rep. Hank Johnson said he feared that stationing 8,000 Marines on Guam would cause the island to ‘become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.’

            That brain dead moron is a US Congressional representitive. People think he is wonderful. Those same people that voted for and idolize him would swoon if M. throws her hat in the ring. The world press would go absolutely crazy pumping out article after article about how lovely her arms look and how lucky the world is such an “experienced” sophisticate has offered to lead the misguided “deplorables” of the USA.

            She would undoubtedly win in a landslide. Such is the state of the current American mindset.

          • Sam Stone November 1, 2019 at 2:45 pm #

            Forgot to add one of the reasons I believe she is gonna run is precisely because she said “she wants nothing to do with it.”

            Barry would love it.

          • Walter B November 1, 2019 at 2:56 pm #

            Michelle is a brilliant choice for them though she would never want HRC as a VP because she would be found suicided the day after the swearing in. Surely her and Barry are not THAT stupid.

            IMHO while either of those alternatives you’ve mentioned are viable, they are stuck with the same playbook as their predecessors.

            While the demographics among our starry eyed youth are there to put them over the top, methinks the money pouring into the Trump campaign from the Bezos and Zuckerberg’s of the world along with anyone else against being broken up and taxed as high as the heavens must be staggering.

        • DrTomSchmidt November 1, 2019 at 3:14 pm #

          The Dems do have some viable candidates. They had Jim Webb in 2016, after all. Elizabeth Warren will be a fearsome competitor, at least from some of the White Working Class people I’ve talked with, who admire her.

          Trump would have to capture many more black votes in that case; I suspect they’re not going to like her as much as Hillary, who they didn’t like enough to vote to win MI and WI. The votes are at the bottom of the pyramid, but the power lies at the top. Warren represents the managerial class but came from the bottom of the pyramid. She is a threat.

          • Sam Stone November 1, 2019 at 4:47 pm #

            What was going through Jim Webb’s mind when he ran as a Dem. What decade, or century, did he think he was in. He is anethma to todays Dems. He might as well be, dare I say it, a Republican. He is in fact more of a Republican in deed and thought than most Republicans.

            But he was the one and only viable candidate the Dems had last election. He is, in fact, the only decent candidate they have had in years.

            I’ve never, ever voted for a Dem in my life and can count the times I’ve voted Rep on one hand minus 3 digits. Libertarian here. That being said I could vote for Jim Webb.

            Yeah SS, Webb was in the Dem mix in 2016 but he never got any traction. At the time I was thinking about a Scott Walker/Jim Webb fusion ticket. Webb wrote an interesting book about the Scottish/Irish roots of people living in Appalachia (his people) He’s kind of dropped out of sight, but I have a Jim Webb 2016 campaign button laying around here somewhere.

        They also focused on transgender rights, allowing transgender “women” to compete against bona fide women in athletic events, late ,late, late term abortions, and to a person, decided that illegals should have healthcare. My prediction: It’ll be 1972 all over again.

        Dr Alan Lichtman predicted Trump’s Electoral College win, just as he has correctly predicted every election since 1984 (including 2000’s popular vote majority for Gore).

        His view is that a Presidential election is a simple UP or DOWN vote on the performance of the Incumbent’s party. He states that 2016 was a ‘change election’, and ANY Republican nominee would have won.

        He’s not saying yet what his prediction for 2020 is, but in his view, the Impeachment process (successful or not) will have a significant negative effect on the view If Trump leaning independents.

      So what of it. So what if the Democrats beat Trump. So what if they don’t. All rivers flow to the sea even if some never get there. Dems or Reps neither has a plan for America. They have plans for themselves and you are not included. All you are supposed to do is pay you taxes and die.

      Sugarplums and high speed trains. No wall too tall. America has technical dreams enough to make everybody stupid. Nobody has a clue about what to do when the rivers of gas run dry. Democrat or Republican it matters not. Both are bailing with a sieve on a sinking ship of fools.

      Trump is a mirror and his glass is cracked but all anyone else has to offer is a different flavor of poison.

        The way it looks the rivers of gas will not run dry in our lifetimes, K-Dog. About 10 years back I thought I’d be hearing the clippers clop of horses coming up my street — which last happened in about 1925 when Teddy Roosevelt’s niece and her husband (the Alsops) rode their horses to visit Teddy’s sister Anna and her husband Admiral Cowles on Sunday afternoons, who lived right around the corner. The house is still there, and it’s still in the family. I was hoping those more genteel times would return; instead it’s this joker in town who bought one of those new 800 bhp Dodge Chargers hauling ass up main street and burning rubber, alas.

      >>> And the sad thing is, I really do think the Democrats would have had a shot at beating Trump next November

      With the candidates Dems are fielding?! Couldn’t disagree more.

      Biden was their best shot. And look at him! Ideology aside—not much different from Trump. Same race. Same age. Same blustery bravado (“…beat him like a drum…”). Only now Biden is embroiled in corruption charges and scandal. And that’s not even counting his creepy groping issues and weekly gaffes.

      Meanwhile, all the independents who were on the fence regarding Trump as a leader in 2016 have seen him in action for three years. No nukes are flying. No WWIII. None of the Dem’s predictions of Armageddon have come true. Trump has been remarkably consistent and true to his core campaign promises. Economy is good. Crazy low unemployment.

      Trump will retain his entire base PLUS all those independents who will certainly go for the candidate they know over those promising to uproot everything and embrace full-on socialism, with taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, and so on.

    DeBlasio, yes DeBlasio came out saying the Epstein situation is suspicious. The Barr group and the FBI are getting involved.

    I hope that the rottenness of the Deep State, the whole damned bunch of them, Dem mostly but RINO too, becomes fully exposed and prosecuted. A real problem here is the judicial system is just as infected with corruption and finding an impartial judge will be nigh to impossible.

    Trusting the voters to discern misdeeds will probably not work as the nation is so gerrymandered that little change is possible. AOC is proof of that as well as our two Muslims.

    The odds are so stacked in the favor of the liberal Deep State that they can flaunt their power in the faces of all of us.

    So bad that our blog sponsor has repudiated his former party, but really has repudiated the rottenness of the entire Deep State.

      The Democrats do not deserve to win an election. After witnessing the dodgy, crooked way in which they conduct their party’s caucuses here in Iowa, I just plain do not trust them.

      • venuspluto67 November 1, 2019 at 10:44 am #

        I’m not even a little surprised to hear that. That said, caucuses as opposed to primaries as a way of choosing the candidate is a system pretty subject to dodgyness. I heard some stories during the brief time I lived in Minnesota (which, if my memory serves me correctly, is switching to primary-system this year).

        • hmuller November 1, 2019 at 10:53 am #

          “Caucuses” sounds too much like “caucasian”. You must henceforth call them the “blaucuses”.

          There’s an interesting history of the caucus system in John Michael Greer’s Decline and Fall. It’s worth a read; returning to the full caucus system as we had in the 1920s would be an improvement.

        Would that be similar to the dodgy, crooked way in which Mitch McConnell waited 1 1/2 years during the Obama administration before submitting Trump’s Supreme Court nomination to the Senate?

          Are you saying two wrongs make a right? How about a race to the bottom between the two parties in terms of unethical behavior?

          • venuspluto67 November 1, 2019 at 1:00 pm #

            How about? That’s what’s happening!

          • Janos Skorenzy November 1, 2019 at 5:35 pm #

            The Left has to be stopped from dominating the Court again, as they did for so long. How do you think that happened? Fair play? They have no such scruples and if we’re smart, we won’t either.

            One more and we’ll have it. Deep State yes, but at least they want to keep America strong to fight for Israel. Deep State, Zionist faction.

            The real mystery is why American Neo-Cons turned against Trump. A possible third faction here?

          • capt spaulding November 1, 2019 at 7:27 pm #

            No, sprawl, two wrongs make two wrongs regardless of which party does it. That’s my point. I’m no great fan of either party’s ethics.

          • Iananna November 4, 2019 at 5:28 am #

            Or, as Nixon would say, ”if two wrongs don’t make a right, try three”.

        So what, the Republicans do? Both sides need to change. This seems so obvious yet so seldom is talked about, I find that peculiar.

        • benr November 4, 2019 at 8:52 am #

          The easiest way to have a conversation is to list what it is about each side we don’t like.
          Since the list is so damn long on the Democrat side it might be easier to list what we like about each side instead.
          Democrat side is easiest.
          List I like about Democrats:
          1:\

          Damn that was tough couldn’t come up with one thing.
          Republicans:
          1:\ Appear to stand for many of the things I believe in.

          Notice the word appears to because in action they don’t really stand for much of anything it would appear. They roll over to fast to Democrat demands.

    • DrTomSchmidt November 1, 2019 at 10:45 am #

      It seems impeachment is an admission that they cannot remove Trump by voting. I thought Trump was the weakest candidate in US history, except for the one who lost to him. All they had to do was do something for the white working class in PA, MI, and WI to win those states back and gain the White House.

      They chose instead to focus on Trump. Amazing. As one Dem said, if we are talking about Trump, we are losing.

      Meanwhile, the black unemployment rate hit a record low today. If tRump has any sense, he will make hay of this.

      • Walter B November 1, 2019 at 11:16 am #

        That’s a great point Doc and especially believable as they have zero viable candidates to rub against him. What I am thinking is that Hillary is behind this whole “remove Trump” campaign and that her leverage is the dirt that she surely has on them coupled with her ability to invoke the “Epstein Effect” (aka Foster’s Fate) to any that might try to stop her. With Trump out of the way, Rodan might very well be able to coerce enough votes to win in 2020. Ask Tulsi, she knows.

        • Sam Stone November 1, 2019 at 1:13 pm #

          Hey Walt, as I’ve stated here before I believe we have not yet seen the Democrats real candidate. They have til Spring. Also as I’ve said here I believe that candidate will be Michelle Obama. Just for shits and grins wouldn’t it be hilarious if at the last minute both Michelle and Hilary jumped in? Then Hils loses the nomination to M. It would be the first time on TV we would witness a person’s head actually explode.

          Another scenario could be M runs for prez with H as her running mate.

          One things for sure (I think) the Democratic leadership is smart enough to know that not a single one of their current candidates is worth a fat rat’s ass.

          Unless of course they think their business as usual cheating is all they need.

          • benr November 1, 2019 at 1:35 pm #

            Michelle Obama has ZERO experience to be President.
            Has publicly said she wants nothing to do with it and Barry would have a fit.

          • Sam Stone November 1, 2019 at 2:40 pm #

            @benr Since when does experience, much less intelligence or common sense, have anything to do with public office?

            Remember when Dem Rep. Hank Johnson said he feared that stationing 8,000 Marines on Guam would cause the island to ‘become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.’

            That brain dead moron is a US Congressional representitive. People think he is wonderful. Those same people that voted for and idolize him would swoon if M. throws her hat in the ring. The world press would go absolutely crazy pumping out article after article about how lovely her arms look and how lucky the world is such an “experienced” sophisticate has offered to lead the misguided “deplorables” of the USA.

            She would undoubtedly win in a landslide. Such is the state of the current American mindset.

          • Sam Stone November 1, 2019 at 2:45 pm #

            Forgot to add one of the reasons I believe she is gonna run is precisely because she said “she wants nothing to do with it.”

            Barry would love it.

          • Walter B November 1, 2019 at 2:56 pm #

            Michelle is a brilliant choice for them though she would never want HRC as a VP because she would be found suicided the day after the swearing in. Surely her and Barry are not THAT stupid.

            IMHO while either of those alternatives you’ve mentioned are viable, they are stuck with the same playbook as their predecessors.

            While the demographics among our starry eyed youth are there to put them over the top, methinks the money pouring into the Trump campaign from the Bezos and Zuckerberg’s of the world along with anyone else against being broken up and taxed as high as the heavens must be staggering.

        • DrTomSchmidt November 1, 2019 at 3:14 pm #

          The Dems do have some viable candidates. They had Jim Webb in 2016, after all. Elizabeth Warren will be a fearsome competitor, at least from some of the White Working Class people I’ve talked with, who admire her.

          Trump would have to capture many more black votes in that case; I suspect they’re not going to like her as much as Hillary, who they didn’t like enough to vote to win MI and WI. The votes are at the bottom of the pyramid, but the power lies at the top. Warren represents the managerial class but came from the bottom of the pyramid. She is a threat.

          • Sam Stone November 1, 2019 at 4:47 pm #

            What was going through Jim Webb’s mind when he ran as a Dem. What decade, or century, did he think he was in. He is anethma to todays Dems. He might as well be, dare I say it, a Republican. He is in fact more of a Republican in deed and thought than most Republicans.

            But he was the one and only viable candidate the Dems had last election. He is, in fact, the only decent candidate they have had in years.

            I’ve never, ever voted for a Dem in my life and can count the times I’ve voted Rep on one hand minus 3 digits. Libertarian here. That being said I could vote for Jim Webb.

          • Workerbee November 1, 2019 at 6:26 pm #

            John Delaney was a sensible choice. Businessman, brought two companys public, job creator unlike the others on the Govt. dole their whole lives.

            WHile in office, hen Barack Obama commisioned the Simpson/Bowles debt reduction committee I heard him say he would vote for it tomorrow.

            He made a bit too much sense so he had to go.

          • BackRowHeckler November 1, 2019 at 7:45 pm #

            Yeah SS, Webb was in the Dem mix in 2016 but he never got any traction. At the time I was thinking about a Scott Walker/Jim Webb fusion ticket. Webb wrote an interesting book about the Scottish/Irish roots of people living in Appalachia (his people) He’s kind of dropped out of sight, but I have a Jim Webb 2016 campaign button laying around here somewhere.

        They also focused on transgender rights, allowing transgender “women” to compete against bona fide women in athletic events, late ,late, late term abortions, and to a person, decided that illegals should have healthcare. My prediction: It’ll be 1972 all over again.

        Dr Alan Lichtman predicted Trump’s Electoral College win, just as he has correctly predicted every election since 1984 (including 2000’s popular vote majority for Gore).

        His view is that a Presidential election is a simple UP or DOWN vote on the performance of the Incumbent’s party. He states that 2016 was a ‘change election’, and ANY Republican nominee would have won.

        He’s not saying yet what his prediction for 2020 is, but in his view, the Impeachment process (successful or not) will have a significant negative effect on the view If Trump leaning independents.

      So what of it. So what if the Democrats beat Trump. So what if they don’t. All rivers flow to the sea even if some never get there. Dems or Reps neither has a plan for America. They have plans for themselves and you are not included. All you are supposed to do is pay you taxes and die.

      Sugarplums and high speed trains. No wall too tall. America has technical dreams enough to make everybody stupid. Nobody has a clue about what to do when the rivers of gas run dry. Democrat or Republican it matters not. Both are bailing with a sieve on a sinking ship of fools.

      Trump is a mirror and his glass is cracked but all anyone else has to offer is a different flavor of poison.

        The way it looks the rivers of gas will not run dry in our lifetimes, K-Dog. About 10 years back I thought I’d be hearing the clippers clop of horses coming up my street — which last happened in about 1925 when Teddy Roosevelt’s niece and her husband (the Alsops) rode their horses to visit Teddy’s sister Anna and her husband Admiral Cowles on Sunday afternoons, who lived right around the corner. The house is still there, and it’s still in the family. I was hoping those more genteel times would return; instead it’s this joker in town who bought one of those new 800 bhp Dodge Chargers hauling ass up main street and burning rubber, alas.

      >>> And the sad thing is, I really do think the Democrats would have had a shot at beating Trump next November

      With the candidates Dems are fielding?! Couldn’t disagree more.

      Biden was their best shot. And look at him! Ideology aside—not much different from Trump. Same race. Same age. Same blustery bravado (“…beat him like a drum…”). Only now Biden is embroiled in corruption charges and scandal. And that’s not even counting his creepy groping issues and weekly gaffes.

      Meanwhile, all the independents who were on the fence regarding Trump as a leader in 2016 have seen him in action for three years. No nukes are flying. No WWIII. None of the Dem’s predictions of Armageddon have come true. Trump has been remarkably consistent and true to his core campaign promises. Economy is good. Crazy low unemployment.

      Trump will retain his entire base PLUS all those independents who will certainly go for the candidate they know over those promising to uproot everything and embrace full-on socialism, with taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, and so on.

    DeBlasio, yes DeBlasio came out saying the Epstein situation is suspicious. The Barr group and the FBI are getting involved.

    I hope that the rottenness of the Deep State, the whole damned bunch of them, Dem mostly but RINO too, becomes fully exposed and prosecuted. A real problem here is the judicial system is just as infected with corruption and finding an impartial judge will be nigh to impossible.

    Trusting the voters to discern misdeeds will probably not work as the nation is so gerrymandered that little change is possible. AOC is proof of that as well as our two Muslims.

    The odds are so stacked in the favor of the liberal Deep State that they can flaunt their power in the faces of all of us.

    So bad that our blog sponsor has repudiated his former party, but really has repudiated the rottenness of the entire Deep State.
