It is All About Politics, Not the Welfare of the Country by The Elephant's Child

Andy McCarthy appeared on Fox News to explain the Democrats and the Mueller probe. Andy is, of course, a former federal prosecutor, who thoroughly understands the intricacies of the federal courts. “Politics is front and center in the Russiagate probe, which has reached previously unknown heights of farce.”

This week saw the spectacle of the House Judiciary Committee holding the attorney general of the United States in contempt for withholding Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report … notwithstanding that the report was actually provided to lawmakers.

Desperate to project the illusion of cover-up in the utter absence of cover-up, Democrats proceeded against the attorney general even though (a) Barr did not owe Congress a single comma in the report because federal law calls for it to be confidential (i.e., between the prosecutor investigating the case and his supervisor, the attorney general); (b) Barr nevertheless gave Congress about 95 percent of the report; (c) congressional Democrats did not avail themselves of the opportunity to read other unredacted portions to which he gave access; (d) all of the unsavory information about President Trump – i.e., the stuff in the report that Democrats truly care about – has been disclosed; and (e) Barr only withheld grand jury information which it would be illegal to disclose – meaning: Democrats put the AG to the untenable choice of violating the law or being held in contempt.

The special counsel not only found no collusion between Trump and Russia, but it now appears that the FBI’s investigation was opened on false pretenses.

The Democrat’s base is still mired deep in Trump Derangement Syndrome, and want Trump to be sent to prison or permanently disgraced or impeached or something awful, because they have been trained to hate Trump, while the rest of the country is basking in full employment and a booming economy.

But it isn’t about the economy, nor unemployment. It’a entirely about politics and returning the Democrats to power and control where they are convinced they belong. They will continue trying to manipulate the economy, the politics. the courts and the Constitution until they get the power they seek.

Clarifying the Nature of the Left by The Elephant's Child

From Andrew C. McCarthy’s book The Grand Jihad:

Neo-communism is leftism liberated by the collapse of the Soviet Union. Many newly believed the Soviet demise would be a cautionary tale for the left, warning against the hubris of big- government schemes to perfect man and society. The opposite instead is the case. David Horowitz, today’s most eloquent and incisive observer of the revolutionary left, the movement in which he was raised and which he turned on fiercely, offers a perfect diagnosis.

“Far from instilling humility in progressives…the collapse of socialism has revived their self-righteousness and re-energized their assault on the democratic West. The disappearance of the Soviet bloc has only one consequence of note.  It has lifted the burden of having to defend…an indefensible regime. Because the utopian vision is no longer anchored in the reality of an actually existing socialist state, the left can now indulge its nihilistic agendas without restraint.”

ibid: Today’s hard left is defined by what it is against: the United States, free-market capitalism, and any foreign policy premised on defending American interests or promoting individual liberty. Only this part of the agenda is concrete, leaving neo-communism elastic enough to strike alliances with any movement that shares it. What neo-communists are for, by contrast is a set of abstractions – “social justice”, “equality” , “redistributive rights”, the “rule of law” and of course “our values” the details of those can be worked out later once the more pressing imperatives of undoing the existing order has been realized.

Seemed like a good reminder.



Andy McCarthy Speaks on the Problem of Collusion by The Elephant's Child

Andy McCarthy was the Federal Prosecutor who successfully tried the Blind Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and his co-conspirators who were responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing. He is the author of Willful Blindness and other important books on jihadism and Islamist fanaticism.

This is his talk, “Ball of Collusion”, on the current search by Robert Mueller for some crime, any crime, with which to attack the President of the United States for what must be a crime for defeating Hillary Clinton in the last election. Andy knows his way around the courts and collusion and crime. The speech was given at the recent Restoration Weekend presented by the David Horowitz Freedom Center. A massive scam? Andy’s the one to ask. But the Russians have almost always sought to interfere in our elections, it’s nothing new.
