Unraveling Yesterday’s Hearing

I found yesterday’s hearing typical. Everyone spoke gobbledeegook and no conclusions were had, despite the mainstream media’s attempt to drag out the phony Trump Russia allegations.

The GOPers could have taken a more aggressive line of questioning against Comey. Seems they can only get tough when they are grilling a Republican, like Nixon. Otherwise it’s just posturing.

One Republican, Elise Stefanik from New York, came closest to a good interrogation. She fell short, too, though and didn’t take the argument to its logical conclusion that Comey and Clapper may be the leakers. Here she is:

The conservative treehouse – mentioned by Laura Ingraham this morning on Fox & Friends – once again had the best evaluation.

Summary: Hillary Clinton political operatives manufactured the illusion of a computer connection between Russian entities (financial banks) and the Trump campaign/organization. Those manufactured points of evidence were then passed along to White House entities who used the political intel community (Clapper to Comey) to open an investigation of nothingness – to nowhere. The mere existence of that investigation was then used as the originating point for a series of media intel leaks (the narrative) intended to cloud and damage the Trump campaign/organization. FBI Director James Comey, as head of one of the investigative agencies, became part of that political apparatus. Now, usefulness exhausted and with the media engaged, it’s CYA time all around for the originating entities.

“Because of the sensitivity of the matter” ~ James Comey

Mr. Mills had served as 1st Vice Chair under Chairman Mary Wagner. He was elevated to Chairman late last year after Governor Bill Haslam appointed Chairman Mary Wagner to her position as Circuit Court Judge.

What Congress Should Do

If you’re familiar with the Cloward and Piven theory of the manufactured crisis, you know the blueprint the Democrats have followed for 70 years. Their plans as outlined here: http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2008/09/barack_obama_and_the_strategy.html. In brief, they sought to use disruption in American life to bring attention to their issues, then flood the media et al with constant discussion of the problem before instituting their own radical plans to change into a socialist world.

In other words, the financial collapse of 2008 was used to their advantage, as were the increase of the welfare state and other entitlements that stress us to the point of collapse. Then they can plan a whole new U.S. according to their beliefs.

Time this gets used against this group of lefty Alinskyites.

How? Do what they did. Republican lawmakers need to flood Congress with laws and bills. They need to fire away with them so as to knock the Democrats off their message. It would force the Democrats to put out so many fires that they don’t know what to attack next.

The Right should take elements of the health care revision, separate them and push them through. While doing that they should start up tax reforms and bring that up. Then immigration, then education, then energy, then whatever else. Force the Dems to go on defense. It’s the position they continually put us in and it’s a losing one.

CNN and MSNBC would not be able to devote much time to each topic. They could not dwell on something – as they have the fake Russian connection story – until it becomes believable. Their hosts would have to hop from topic to topic, never making inroads with viewers.

Republicans should have a never ending group of victims of Dem policies paraded before friendly shows or at news conferences or at rallies, too. President Trump is very good at turning the tables on them. Follow his leadership.

Whatever new crisis comes up – say the threat of the Oroville dam bursting – Republicans should extrapolate on that and demand attention on all the infrastructure collapsing as a way to prep for Trump’s infrastructure programs. After all, it’s mostly Democrat states like California that haven’t paid attention to the vital needs of its citizens.

Every illegal immigrant attack on Americans (like the poor 14 year old girl raped last week in a Michigan school by two of them) should be brought up. Every attack by radical Islamic terrorists – even in other countries – should be highlighted. Every Democrat demanding Trump’s tax records should be ridiculed when theirs are not or fall short. Bernie Sanders, the Clinton Global Initiative anyone?

Republicans have many avenues to success – if they’ll use them. That’s the rub.

Conservatives Striking Back

This week saw craziness go off the charts.
Yesterday, for example, the St. Louis Post Dispatch decided to tweet that President Trump refused to shake German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hand. Only there’s this:

Looks like a normal handshake to me.

Of course we had the Rachel Maddow “blockbuster” that turned out to be blockheaded in Trump’s tax returns. More fake news. Then Snoop Dogg made a music video in which he shoots a clown Trump in the head. Nice!

Fortunately some on our side are beginning to rebel at the liberal assaults.

When Greg Gutfeld saw rapper Bow Wow’s tweet to Trump: “shut your punk a** up talking sh-t about my uncle @SnoopDogg” before we pimp your wife and make her work for us”, he wasn’t happy.

He replied:

Tim Allen shares his experience:

Then – if you can stand it – Tomi Lahren appeared on the View and gave as good as she got:

$$ Exit From Arts Good for Them

After the Trump budget pulled money from the National Endowment for the Arts, PBS and NPR, celebrities are incensed. Well, they always are since the election, but it went up a notch with this announcement.

Everyone from Julie Andrews to Jamie Lee Curtis howled. Most of them believe that government money helps the arts. But does it?

They should be applauding the move. Who wants the government involved in movies, TV, dance, theater, painting? As the old saw goes, nothing is free. All funding comes with strings attached.

Why would they want this? It might be cool in an Obama administration, but would they like to dance to the conservatives’ tune? No. Just look at the Soviet Union’s art “appreciation.” It led to the most dehumanizing, propagandistic monuments and literature imaginable. It’s only when artists are free that they can perform and innovate.

The last decade or so has really been a poor one for the arts. Our TV shows – those that aren’t takeoffs of British ones – don’t attract viewers as they once did. Movie attendance is off because there is nothing left for them to discuss except the same old social justice warrrior themes or stale knock offs or more cartoon superheroes. When has there been

Free from government funding is a good thing. It will make them more creative and open up audiences for their works.

Praise From Trump

You may have seen Trump’s address in Nashville last night, but an earlier speech praising Andrew Jackson got little media play.

However, it’s worth listening to:

We won’t be seeing as much of Jackson in the future. His image will be removed from the $20 bill and will be replaced by Harriet Tubman. This was an order from Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury, Jack Lew.
