Law enforcement agencies becoming interested in actually prosecuting a former President means that members of Congress are no longer inviolate. And that scares the bejeebus out of them. Between campaign finance 'irregularities' to sudden stock buys just before votes, to just plain corruption or some old fashioned sex crimes, there are a some dirty motherf*ckers who are close to realizing that the feeding trough might be deep enough now to drown them entirely. And rather than examine their own behavior, or crime less, they want to quash the folks who are noticing that they're dirty as f*ck. The FBI is supposed to be THEIR weapon, not pointed AT them. Same as any other Federal agency.

Donnie and The Dumbest Coup is close to revealing how many Legislators decided, "Democracy is boring," and the closer that gets, the more unhinged that they're going to get about law enforcement daring to treat them like the criminals that they are.

McCarthy is throwing red meat to a base that needs more red meat the way Chernobyl needs more radioactivity.  This midterm isn't like any midterm Qevin has ever seen.  This midterm will have record turnout of people voting on what the Supreme Court of Gilead just did.  And they're not happy with Qevin.

Headline doesn't really work. "Speak no ill of a fellow Republican" was thrown out with all the RINO talk. This is just desperation for outrage. They tried gas prices but that's correcting. They tried inflation, but that was a weird supply side thing because of the pandemic. It was forestalled by some heavy subsidizes for a time but those mostly ended because there was a Democrat in office. They simply are desperate to be outraged. It's their thing. They need it to fuel the hate.

When you're a criminal, you don't want anybody enforcing the law.

They've been after LE for years, in spite of all the "Support the Police" bullshiat. Let one of those noble cops try to bust a corrupt Republican politician and see how his career goes.

All this stupid speculation could be cleared up by TFG, I mean, after all, he has a copy of the warrant and is free to release as he sees fit

Yet he doesn't
Odd that

11th Commandment

What's infuriating is that Reagan was essentially saying, "You know I always say government is the problem, but sometimes things are bad enough that government must step in." He was actually arguing FOR government intervention.

I think you all know that I've always felt the nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help. A great many of the current problems on the farm were caused by government-imposed embargoes and inflation, not to mention government's long history of conflicting and haphazard policies. Our ultimate goal, of course, is economic independence for agriculture, and through steps like the tax reform bill, we seek to return farming to real farmers. But until we make that transition, the Government must act compassionately and responsibly. In order to see farmers through these tough times, our administration has committed record amounts of assistance, spending more in this year alone than any previous administration spent during its entire tenure. No area of the budget, including defense, has grown as fast as our support for agriculture.

The FBI investigating civil rights violations by local police departments has always annoyed conservatives. They liked the FBI better when it was spying on MLK looking for ways to discredit him.

no "documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions" by the FBI.

Rest of the article is about butthurt magats' feefees and Hunter Biden!?!!

Don't pretend it's just the FBI. Republicans and Putin want to dismantle the entire American administrative state.

Republicans dislike literally every agency which hasn't been politicized into a literal arm of conservative talk radio.
 
2022-08-11 9:49:47 AM  
Here's the process, try to stick with me:

3 days ago: FBI good
2 days ago: FBI bad

In the party of Trump, there's only "what have you done for me lately". Let's not pretend that doesn't apply here.

So long as the FBI seemingly went along with the BLM/Antifa Summer Riots story as told by various police narratives, the GOP right wing allies like proud boys and oat keepers expected an extraordinary courtesy from all law enforcement.  That was supported every instance in their long summer agent provocateur's campaign.

That "courtesy" expired at some time during the day on January 6th.   And while half the senators and representatives have now recanted their first reactions of fear on that day and now claim it was the licensed making of "Tourists Gone Wild" as a theme park attraction, the real FBI has shaken off enough of TFG's infiltration and attempted corruption.  MAGA is an organized Anti Government movement.  It's that simple.  It's that complex as to what profit and power it could bring.  The FBI is Government, G-men.

Well, there is a process. In the short term they're using this as a GOTV effort. In the longer term they're setting the stage to purge any shreds of disloyalty from the agency and turn it into a nationwide intelligence and enforcement arm of The Party should they take the WH in 2024.

Cruz and Rubio are pretty racist themselves. The only thing they got out of Trump that wouldn't have happened with any other GOP option was pissing off the libs. Everything else was either break even or a step back for the GOP.

Farkin Reagan with his puerile commandment that is so stupid it ranged all the dumbasses n America. Between is 3rd rate acting and Newt Gingrich's utter evilness, we're left with the America we have today.

Which reminds me of the story of one of Gingrich's aides bringing his daughter to him as he sat in a car, but Newt waved him away because he hadn't finished getting a blowjob, presumably from the woman he was cheating on his wife with, that being Callista, who he went on to marry, and long after he fell from grace and should have left the political stage, his wife who he cheated on his second wife with, was named Ambassador to the Vatican by Trump.

There is bad taste and then there's Donald Trump appointing an amoral cockgobbler to be ambassador to the Holy See, or whatever it's called.

Just to remind everybody, Trump is the walking/talking personification of Evil. Period.

Funny you should mention that.

I decided to google day who the judge was who signed the search warrant and according to Fox News and NY Post among other such rags, he's a leftist Obama donor and former Epstein lawyer who was appointed to that judgeship in 2018.

Not one of those articles mentioned who the asshole was who was going around appointing leftist Obama donors and former Epstein lawyers to federal courts in 2018.
