Kevin McCarthy has been stirring up the faithful by talking about sweeping investigations once the GOP takes control of the House. Which sounds good, but what does it really mean? Why aren’t Democrats shaking in their boots? They’re still lying, scheming, and flipping the bird not only to Republican lawmakers, but to American voters as well. I wonder why they’re not concerned.
Could it be because experience has convinced them that they have nothing to worry about? Consider the fact that the greatest political crime in American history has gone unpunished after seven years of investigations. You know the facts, I know the facts, and millions of other people know the facts, but neither Jeff Sessions, Bill Barr, nor John Durham could find enough credible evidence to justify prosecuting the orchestrators of the ongoing attempted coup d’état.
Amazingly, after the Russia-collusion hoax was exposed, the only person who was held accountable was a low-level scrub who was given a slap on the wrist and sent to his bedroom for the night without dinner. There are millions of people who could have prosecuted the brazen attempt to overthrow a sitting president based on the illegalities that have been readily available for anyone to examine, but the professionals couldn’t seem to find anything wrong. As Dan Bongino would say, this is total bullshit.
Let’s face it, the word investigation has become code for “sweep it under the rug.” Take professional pervert Hunter Biden, for example, who has supposedly been under investigation for more than two years. Since there is enough evidence of serious criminal activity on his own laptop, no more investigation is needed. A serious prosecutor would have had him in prison long ago. Do we really need to know any more about the Biden crime family’s well documented evidence-peddling scheme to be able to determine their guilt or innocence? I think not.
One of the dangers in all this is that regular law-and-order folks have become so used to political criminality that they come to accept it as normal. Victor Davis Hanson is one of my favorite political analysts. In fact, I’ve never heard him say anything I didn’t agree with — until last week, that is.
In a recent appearance on Fox News, Hanson made the point (and I’m paraphrasing) that the tit-for-tat between Democrats and Republicans needs to stop. He said Republicans should not follow through on Kevin McCarthy’s threat to Merrick Garland to “preserve your documents and clear your calendar,” because it would endanger the future of our republic.
Again, I love Hanson. He has an amazing intellect and a remarkable ability to rattle off facts in an organized, easy-to-understand way. But he’s also human, and this is one time he was wrong. It’s as though he had contracted the uniparty virus through osmosis, and if it happened to Hanson, it can happen to anybody. Which is why Republicans have to go after Democrats with a vengeance once they take control of the House and Senate.
First, though, the GOP needs to push aside the RINOs in the party, and there are many. Then, the MTG-Gaetz-Boebert-Hawley axis should take charge and demand action — repeat, action — against Democrats who not only break the law on a daily basis, but arrogantly flout it. It’s true that prosecutions can’t begin until Republicans win back the White House in 2024, but, in the meantime, they should make life as miserable as possible for the leftists who are working night and day to destroy the country.
The high crimes perpetuated by Democrats will continue unabated until the cost-benefit analysis convinces them that the consequences are too great a price to pay for the short-term thrill of inflicting pain on their enemies. Whoever ends up being the 2024 Republican president, the first thing he should do is hire an attorney general with the personality of a Mark Levin, Dan Bongino, or Stephen Miller.
Then, the president should tell the attorney general to dispense with the theatrical investigations and start aggressively prosecuting every political criminal in Washington — politicians and bureaucrats alike — not only for their current crimes, but past crimes as well. Everyone from Obama and Hillary on down needs to be held accountable for what they have done to the United States.
Bottom line: Republicans had better wake up to the fact that what half of America wants is indictments, prosecutions, and prison sentences, not endless investigations.
