Projection is the word of the day

Mueller moans, media misleads. Paul Mirengoff – “One rarely sees mention of this in mainstream media reporting, for an obvious reason — it makes Barr look good and Mueller look bad.” One of the more significant problems that many have trouble accepting is the culpability of the media in its propaganda efforts.

Trump is not a dictator, Nadler is. Our political system is being weaponized against itself. Mark Penn – “After Attorney General Bill Barr did not show up for his hearing on Thursday because Nadler wanted to question the A.G. in a manner reserved for inquests and investigations, Nadler then called the president a “dictator.”

“I understand that Nadler is upset about the refusal of the A.G. to participate in some kind of show trial he was arranging after 5 hours of Barr’s testimony before the Senate, but to the extent anyone is acting like a dictator here it’s unfortunately Nadler. He has lost all perspective.

Nancy Pelosi then piled on as well calling the Attorney General a criminal. You may or may not like Barr’s demeanor, answers or his summary of the Mueller report, but he is no criminal nor does he deserve this kind of unrestrained disrespect.

Legislative oversight is not a specifically enumerated power in the Constitution — it’s a limited power implied from the “necessary and proper” clause and subject to privileges, separation of powers, and the need for a legitimate legislative purpose. It’s not an open-ended power but bounded by the checks and balances of our constitution.

The Mueller report should have closed down investigations of the president, not opened them up. It unambiguously cleared the president of any conspiracy or collusion with the Russians, ending two or more years of undermining the president and his family with unfair and unjust criminal investigations. …

Nadler‘ s response has been to begin a coordinated plan with other Democratic committee chairs to subpoena every tax, business and other records of the president, his family, and his businesses and associates.

Now that kind of inquisition is exactly what dictators do, especially when they are trying to use their power to destroy their political opponents.

No matter how good our Constitution, it requires people to operate out of good faith.

Our political system is being weaponized against itself. Our elections have to settle our differences not exacerbate them and investigations have to have an end not be endless.

And then there’s the story about the White House security clearances that noted the felonious leaks to the press.
