Oh well, a hearty congratulations to the Purdue Boilermakers and their superb victory over my Tennessee Volunteers Thursday night in the Sweet Sixteen NCAA Men’s basketball tournament. The Vols men’s basketball team had a record-setting season, 31 victories and a month spent as number one in the nation. It will be a season to remember and they should hold their heads high. I am proud to be a Tennessee Volunteer.
But, as you know, it is Saturday and it is the day we highlight those who should not hold their heads high. We take this time for our Old School Patriot “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition, and we are not proud of these people. This week we have co-recipients of this dubious distinction, and I can almost assure y’all can correctly guess their names. There were two stories that filled the airwaves this week, and two individuals tied to these events who distinguished themselves as a very special kind of stupid.
This week’s awardees of the Stuck on Stupid recognition are the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, California Congressman Adam Schiff and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.
I think having Adam Schiff as the Chairman of a Committee on Intelligence is a laughable example of an oxymoron, yes, emphasis on moron. Here, in the aftermath of the Robert Mueller special counsel report that there was no collusion with Russia by then-candidate/now President Trump, well, Chairman Schiff still opines that he’s seen substantial evidence that President Trump is guilty of collusion with Russia.
Oh, an honorable mention for “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition goes to another California Congressman, Eric Swalwell, who maintains that President Trump is an agent of Russia. I have one question: who votes for these delusional and deranged chuckleheads?
I just want to know, what resources and investigative assets do Schiff and Swalwell have that have provided them the definitive evidence to make such absurd assertions and condemnations? Mueller had countless investigators, and lawyers, issued thousands of subpoenas, had hundreds of witnesses and came to the conclusion that we all knew — and we did not need to waste $25M to come to.
However, when you are stuck on stupid, reason, logic, common sense, and intelligence are unattainable qualities. I agree, Adam Schiff should not be the Chairman of our Committee on Intelligence, but not because of his insidious claims. Schiff has sought to perpetrate a dangerous
false narrative lie: the ultimate deception of the American people not based upon fact but rather hyper-partisan mania. And the last thing we need is a stupid, lying, deceptive maniac overseeing our intelligence agencies.
Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, are clear examples of being stuck on stupid . . . and those who believe them. Yes, they are a very special kind of stupid. Vladimir Lenin referred to them as “useful idiots.”
That leads us to our second recipient, Cook County State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx. Oh boy, this lady is not just stuck on stupid, but she displays the level of hubris and arrogance of position that is a threat to our system of justice. All of a sudden, on Tuesday, her office releases a statement that all charges — felonies — against Jussie Smollett would be dropped. By dropped, I mean his record expunged and sealed, as if nothing ever happened.
The rationale? We were told that the State’s Attorney office decided that his 16 felony charges were not violent in nature and that he was just a first time offender. Oh, boy, did that set off a firestorm, especially for the mayor and superintendent of police who were not informed beforehand . . . then, it happened. Yes, a few hours of community service with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition and forfeiture of the $10K bail was deemed an appropriate punishment.
But, oh, does the plot thicken! It appears that the former Chief of Staff for Michelle Obama, Ms. Tchen, texted Ms. Foxx seeking preferential treatment for Smollett. Ms. Tchen is rather cozy with Smollett’s sisters. We have photos proving a pre-existing relationship between Smollett and the Obamas. But the bombshell is now that Ms. Foxx, who said she had recused herself, well, it appears that she did not actually recuse herself in this case. Then again, it is Cook County Illinois, Chicago, where corruption is just like underwear . . . people put it on every day.
How stupid was Ms. Foxx to believe that she could perpetrate this lie and deceit? Does she truly believe that We the People are just that gullible, dumb? Well, yes, this is what the arrogant, elites believe, that we are just too dense to recognize their stupidity. Then again, why not? These usurpers and charlatans are elected regularly and consistently. This is why they take these actions because they have little regard or respect for us, who they see as useful idiots.
Adam Schiff and Kim Foxx, with honorable mention to Eric Swalwell, are this week’s recipients of the esteemed “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” award. Funny, is it a coincidence that these three are from two well-known blue states, that are economically failing, yet they get elected? I remember the words of an NCO during my time in the Army, “you can’t fix stupid, but you have to keep it from spreading.” The sad reality for America is that this stupid is spreading out of California and Illinois to states like Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Virginia, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, and now even Texas!
Keep America strong: stop the spread of stupid!
