Opportunism and craftiness

The left’s big blame game after El Paso: Guns, Trump, white supremacy. Monica Showalter – “It’s nothing but cheap opportunism of the sleaziest sort.”

“The left is trying to make political hay again over a mass shooting in El Paso and then another one in Dayton, blaming the whole thing on — take your pick, guns, President Trump, or white supremacy. Just look at them go and this is hardly a comprehensive sampling of all versions of these same arguments out there:

Guns have been around since the Constitution was signed and mass shootings have been around since the dawn of the 20th century.

None of this is stopping Democrats and leftists from their lockstep solution of gun control, something that didn’t stop mass shootings in these gun-free zones

What’s also obnoxious is their claim that Trump, who condemned the maniac and sent comfort to the victims, was somehow responsible. Trump has never advocated mass shooting or justified anyone who has. That won’t stop the left.

The political opportunism is disgusting. And counterproductive. And it sure as heck isn’t going to work. Maybe they should shut the heck up for long enough for the sane people of Texas and Ohio to just clear the bodies.

How Comey set a trap for prosecutors when leaking his memos. Thomas Lifson – “Credit Comey with the legal sophistication you’d expect from a head of the FBI, but also credit the team assembled by Attorney General Barr for avoiding the trap.”
