Reap what you sow. It sometimes just takes a while.

The Blatant Left. Ed Rosalie – “The Left uses or manipulates the civility and personal responsibility of those not with it to insure its own invincibility.”

“The rabidity of TDS is relentless, to the point that some of its zealots are turning on Mueller for not providing the desired outcome, and subsequent schemes for Trump’s destruction are already being aggressively pursued.

Almost as frightening as the Left’s overt attack on our democracy and its traditions is everyone else’s seeming aversion to seeking revenge or even accountability.

The left has no fear, thus it doesn’t need to operate in the dark, because it knows those who are not with them do not have the same focus. The Left knows that negative impacts and even shock at their blatancy is diluted for those rubes on the other side who are more focused with living their lives, caring for their families, and keeping their heads above water. Those others don’t have time to spend their lives plotting and scheming and obsessing over how to undermine and overthrow those who do not agree with them politically. That stuff takes time.

The Left is neither shy nor inhibited nor possessed of a conscience.

The actions of the Left are reminiscent of the Middle Ages and most dictators: use the ignorance or lethargy of the masses to keep them inert and diminish any threat they might offer. Today, the Left uses or manipulates the civility and personal responsibility of those not with them to insure their own invincibility while its own well-armed miscreants blatantly and indomitably strut their stuff in full view, fully aware that they can pretty much do as they wish. …and woe to those who warrant their ire or oppose them in any way.

Read this if you believe that you will never need a semi-automatic rifle. hedgeless_horseman – “Day in and day out I observe that The Rule of Law is being eroded in America, especially the Highest Law of the Land.”

John Brennan, the Russia lie ringleader?’ Monica Crowley – “Over the past two years, one of their biggest “tells” has been their hyper-aggressive and gratuitous attacks on the president. Given that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation found no collusion or obstruction of justice, their constant broadsides now look, in retrospect, like calculated pre-emptive strikes to deflect attention and culpability away from themselves.

“Any investigation into the origins and execution of the Big Lie must focus on Mr. Brennan, whose job as the nation’s chief spook would have prohibited him, by law, from engaging in any domestic political spy games.

Of course, the law didn’t stop him from illegally spying on the Senate Intelligence Committee by hacking into its computers and lying repeatedly about it, prompting Democratic senators to call for his resignation.

If the devil is in the details, Mr. Brennan is all over the details.

No wonder he — and his fellow caballers — have been so loud. They doth protest too much.

Dems Have Vastly More to Fear from Full Mueller Report than GOP. Roger L. Simon – “Likely Nadler is secretly praying Barr redacts the whole damn thing or ties things up in the courts for long enough for the investigation to disappear at least somewhat down the memory hole.

“The natural question will then be — what was all this for? Cui bono? A full airing of the report, what Nadler claims he wants, will instead “open the door,” as they say in court, more than ever for an investigation of why this probe was launched in the first place, by whom and for what reason. The results of that investigation will be quite scary, if not humiliating, for Democrats because they will lead close to, if not over, their highest doorstep — the portals of the Oval Office during the previous administration.

… Nadler has to be very careful not to anger Barr too much because the attorney general has within his control the ability to appoint a special counsel and make life miserable for the Democratic Party straight to the election of 2020 and beyond.

Meanwhile, besides whatever Barr decides to do, several other vectors are pointing at the Democrats and their DOJ/FBI/media allies.

So many unanswered questions are sitting there crying out for answers. Even the most reluctant investigator or prosecutor may be constrained to deal with them or face historical disdain.

Finally! Mitch McConnell shuts down Democrats’ obstruction of confirmation of Trump appointees. Thomas Lifson – “Because of unprecedented abuse of Senate rules, two-and-a-half years into his presidency, President Trump has not been able to put all of his own qualified, confirmable appointees into senior-level positions. This obstructionism has allowed Obama administration holdovers to obstruct and sabotage implementation of his policies (and to leak to the media).” There are consequences to being irresponsible.

“Senate Democrats have cynically exploited the Senate rules allowing 30 hours of debate of each appointee to slow down the staffing of his administration. Finally, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell yesterday pushed through a majority-vote measure that changes those rules, limiting debate to two hours per appointment.

The same trick has been used to limit the confirmation of federal judges, and those rules also have been changed.

Naturally, Politico’s coverage of the story is long onDemocrat taling points, nd short on examination of the unprecedented obstructionism of the Dems

The lesson for Dems and their media lickspittles is simple: abuse the rules of the Senate and those rules will be changed.

Gone fishing. Six years of Trump’s tax returns? Jazz Shaw – “if Richard Neal does manage to have Trump’s tax returns delivered to him and any of that information makes its way out into open hearings or to the press, he will have committed a felony. There’s also the question of the validity of a request such as this. In general terms, you only conduct an investigation when there has been a crime committed and you have reasonable cause to believe that such a disclosure would be fruitful in resolving the matter.

“What specific crime took place that might be resolved by viewing Donald Trump’s tax returns? The idea of proving some sort of conflict of interest is a fascinating one, because it would essentially set a precedent saying that anyone with any business interests should be barred from running for the presidency. After all, every decision the White House makes could arguably impact any business in the country in some way or another. The Democrats would also apparently like to claim that if anyone from a foreign country spends the night at a Trump hotel they’ve committed some sort of “collusion.”

The more you read through the details of this request, the more it begins to look like this is yet another fishing expedition. But the Democrats in the House are playing with fire on this one. They would obviously like to find some dirt in Trump’s tax returns and air it out in the media to gain an advantage in the next elections. But if they do, the Justice Department might have quite a few things to say about that.

That’s two blatant attempts to skirt the law for political dirt by Democratic leaders in the house. The change of rules in the Senate show what happens when you behave irresponsibly like this.
