Robert Mueller Stirs the Pot – Again!

Robert Mueller makes an unsolicited, very public statement at the Department of Justice, which, he said, would be his last as a public official. It was on the subject of the now highly controversial Mueller Report. His statement was unnecessary, because there was absolutely nothing new in what he said. He simply repeated the findings of his team’s 488 page Mueller Report, and announced his upcoming resignation from public life.

But in his carefully crafted speech, he managed to stir the political, anti-Trump pot once again and gave the Democrat pro-impeachment crowd, which seemed to be losing ground until this morning, a big push forward once again.

While confirming that there were “multiple, systematic efforts” on the part of the Russians to interfere with the 2016 Presidential elections, he confirmed that his team had not found any evidence to charge the President with collusion with a foreign power. He also repeated that his team had also not found sufficient evidence to accuse the President of obstruction of justice. 

But – and here is the key to his underlying purpose – he was very careful to make a clear distinction between innocence and suspected guilt.

He said, “If we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that. We did not determine whether the President did commit a crime”. 

In crafting his words in that way, he re-opened the door to new allegations that President Trump had indeed committed a crime of some sort. He also gave Democrats a new weapon with which to open new investigations that would repeat his work of the last two years, and tie up government at least until January 2021.

Mueller did not say these words out of hand. His words were precise and closely crafted to give new life to the old suspicions that the Democrats have been chasing since before the election in November 2016. 

He then made it even clearer. “Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider,” he said, because, he said, that it was longstanding Justice Department policy not to indict a sitting President. The implication here is very clearly that had they had that option, they might well have done so.

It took no time for Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who has been waging his own not-so-private war against the President, to make it clear that the end of the Mueller investigation was far from the end of the story. He vowed that Congress would continue to investigate the allegations of obstruction of justice, that were implied by Mueller’s statement.

Nadler said, “Given that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was unable to pursue criminal charges against the President, it falls to Congress to respond to the crimes, lies, and other wrongdoing of President Trump – and we will do so”. And then he added, rather self-righteously, “No one, even the President of the United States, is above the law.”

The President was unequivocal in his response to Mueller’s speech. He tweeted, “Nothing changes from the Mueller Report.  There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you.”

There is an underlying psychosis – a sickness of the soul – that is afflicting those Democrats – like Jerrold Nadler – who simply cannot give up their obsession to destroy the President by any means necessary. And in doing so, they have stood in the way of nearly every effort to move this country forward by obstructing the business of Congress at every opportunity.

There has been no President in recent history (with the possible exception of Harry Truman, whose sense of personal integrity was legendary), who has not strayed over the legal limits from time to time. Several recent Presidents were notorious among those in the know, for doing just that. This excuses nothing, of course, but only points out that if the President did step over the line – in this current DC climate where “integrity” is a word in a foreign language and “legal” is a concept often honored in the breach – he certainly has plenty of company.

But Donald Trump promised to drain the swamp in Washington, where the culture of corruption is dark and deep. And he has already done much to start that process. But the Democrats are sinking deep into the muck once again, trying to impeach a President whom they hate. They hate him because he won the election, and are determined to bring him down. It is childish, and foolish, and a clear and present danger to our nation, whose Congress has all but stopped doing its job.

Robert Mueller got his two cents in on Wednesday. And while he may feel better for having said his piece, his speech was a self-serving exercise in hubris. He has done his country no favors. Rather, he has rekindled a malevolent fire that will continue to burn under the current administration for the duration of its term.

What will be most interesting to see is whether the shenanigans of the Democrats will enrage the President’s large base to such an extent that they will come out to the polls in the millions, and the Democrats will pay for their unbridled vindictiveness by being roundly trounced in the upcoming 2020 elections.

As they say, “what goes around, comes around.” And it very well might.

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…
