As we are all aware by now, the Mueller report was released late last Friday. That simple fact should have told ya something. If this was to be a grand bombshell of a report it would not have been released late on a Friday heading into a weekend filled with March Madness college basketball games. As well, there would have been leaks to the liberal progressive media. None of that happened, and, therefore, what was supposed to be the long-awaited report condemning the Trump administration fizzled.
What the Mueller report actually revealed to all of us — those who see this objectively — is that an attempted coup d’etat by the progressive socialists in America failed. If you turned over to the leftist media outlets over the weekend, in between college hoops, you would have seen the abject despair, despondency, depression, and anger of the left.
As a matter of fact, word got out about a Democrat (socialist) conference call that was to take place on Saturday afternoon with party leadership. We can all surmise what this was about: messaging. Messaging on how to spin this in a direction that will allow the left to continue the incessant investigations and hearings . . . which, since unsubstantiated, are now unnecessary.
After two years, tens of millions of American taxpayer dollars, hundreds of witnesses, thousands of subpoenas, and countless investigative resources . . . nothing. As we say in the military, it was all a dry hole.
Okay, sure, now the left wants to pursue the “obstruction of justice” issue, even though the report stated that there was not enough evidence to pursue that allegation. Then again, there was never any evidence for any of this!
Let’s be honest here: the Mueller special counsel investigation was all predicated upon a false and salacious political dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Ya know, the same folks who were bleaching and destroying computer drives and information technology equipment. This infamous unvalidated dossier, created by a former British spy, with information from Russians, wrongly fed to our FISA court system, was the basis of this entire episode.
So, where do we go from here?
First, the leftists were horribly wrong, and will never admit this is over. So, as Jerrold Nadler stated, they will continue to investigate, hold hearings, and subpoena the Attorney General and Robert Mueller to testify. In other words, the Democrat (socialist) Party is made up of a bunch of sore losers. They were part of a coup that failed, and now they will do anything to continue down this foolish path. They look petulant, childish, and ignorant, to say the least.
They are confirming what we have all believed: this is about nothing more than losing the 2016 presidential election. They will re-litigate that which has already been extensively investigated. They have rejected the outcomes because they did not get the outcomes that they wanted.
The danger for the left is that if they continue down this road, they will lose in 2020. They are not seeking to improve the quality of life for Americans. They are only out for vengeance and power. Since they have no policy solutions that are viable and coherent — other than socialist policies — they have sought to demonize President Trump.
Again, the coup failed, now what?
Second, for the GOP, they are now set up for success to go after the false origination of this coup, this shameful episode. How many are embroiled in this folly? The list is long and the names are very recognizable — Andrew McCabe, James Comey, John Brennan, Lisa Paige, Peter Strzok, Bruce and Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Adam Schiff, James Clapper, and others. These people need to be brought into the sunlight, as it is the best disinfectant. The GOP does not need to look like they are attempting political retribution, but rather on the behalf of the American people, expose the plot to overthrow a duly elected American president.
We need to show that the leftist media was completely complicit in this coup attempt and they should be held accountable as well. Yes, the media was feeding the American public Democrat (socialist) talking points — not truth.@POTUS @realDonaldTrump should realize he has an opportunity to turn the tide against the left. If he will focus more on his policies & those successes, & bring less attention to his persona, he will waltz to victory in 2020. Click To Tweet
This has been a sad period for America. Some may think this has come to an end, it has not. The progressive socialist left hates President Donald Trump. President Trump should realize that he also has an opportunity, to turn the tide against the left. If he could focus more on his policies, and those successes, and bring less attention to his persona, he will waltz to victory in 2020.
We clearly see the left for who they are, and what they intend for America. The progressive socialist left has no message, and the message of hating President Trump (#Resist!) has lost much steam. The left’s policy of the Green New Deal is a joke. So what do they have to offer?
No, we do not line people up against a wall when their attempt at a coup fails. Then again, we have never experienced anything like this previously. But, we do need to hold those who sought to undermine our Constitutional Republic and its election process accountable. If we fail to do so, then the lesson will not be learned, and the progressive socialist left will try this again.
And, they will fail because this is America, truth always prevails!
