With a major tip of my imaginary hat to townhall.com’s Bruce Bialosky – and my apologies for how much of his latest commentary I am lifting for this blog – here is his take on who the real Collusion Culprits are:
Barack Obama. He radicalized the political structure. Or shall we say he did an Alinsky on our federal government. Trump is still trying to weed out the sycophants sucking off the federal largesse. If you doubt that Obama created this atmosphere, just look at two people during the last two years — James Clapper and John Brennan. Mr. Clapper was the Director of National Intelligence and Mr. Brennan was the Director of the CIA under President Obama. These are supposed to be non-political posts, but during this episode these two added more fuel to the flame of the Russia Hoax than anyone else. With their lofty former positions in the Intelligence Community, they said they had the goods on Trump; thus, Trump must be guilty. These two should be shipped to the same island that housed Napoleon and never heard from again.
Then there’s James Comey, who may be the most arrogant person who ever worked for our government. And with less rationale to be arrogant. These kinds of people should never have leadership roles in any government.
Make no mistake: Mr. Obama and his henchmen got away with everything under the sun. His hands were all over the beginnings of this investigation. They were emboldened by the press’s docile reaction to the criminalization of the IRS in the run-up to the 2012 election, Operation Fast and Furious and Benghazi. When you use the most powerful U.S. agency (IRS) to throttle your political opponents and enable Americans to be murdered and get away with it, why would you think launching a bogus investigation against the opposition’s presidential candidate would ever be questioned? And they never would have if the unthinkable had not happened – Hillary lost. Where are the reporters quizzing Mr. Obama and his hand-picked Attorney General Loretta Lynch about their involvement in this constitutional takedown? Even if they were questioned, they would invoke the racism charade and the press would scurry like the rats they are back to their holes.
Yes, the press. The press in this country has become a disgrace. They are grossly partisan and don’t even wish to hide it. Two of the three most important daily publications in the country, The New York Times and The Washington Post, don’t even bother to hide their contempt for the current president and all other Republicans. They don’t report news; they opine. So do the broadcast channels. The standards used today make the yellow journalism battles between Pulitzer and Hearst of over a century ago seem quaint. The industry has done a deep dive into the muck — not to generate profits akin to the battles of yesteryear, but because of their unrestrained Leftist political agenda.
Well said, Mr. Bialosky. Very, very well said.
This is why these Obama operatives and their press cohorts are so hot to attack/demonize Attorney General William Barr, then somehow change the subject. It is out of fear that he will conduct the investigation that should have been conducted over these past two years; the one that really does have solid, indisputable evidence. The one that, if the evidence bears out, will implicate them and expose their efforts to undo the 2016 election. The one that, again, if the evidence bears out, will expose our supposedly neutral media as aiders and abetters in this huge scandal.
Personally, all I’m looking for is the truth.
If the above-mentioned evidence does not lead to the conclusions I expect, so be it. I don’t want innocent people, regardless of what I think of their politics, paying a price for anything they did not do.
But if it does? Then punish them to the full extent of the law, because they deserve it.
