Within moments of the Russiagate document release, the left and MSM chorused nearly the same thing almost in unison: this is a travesty of justice! And they weren’t talking about the wretched excesses of the state apparatus regarding the framing of Flynn, they were talking about Barr and the refusal to pursue the charges against Flynn. It’s a political vendetta! It’s the end of the rule of law! James Comey’s tweet … was a good example of this. …
Now we have the “leak” of a “private” phone call between Obama and some-bunch-or-other of those who worked in his administration. … Obama’s call gets across the ex-president’s opinions about the recent revelations regarding Flynn.
And guess what? It’s all about the violation of the “rule of law” –- not the egregious and audacious violations committed by Obama’s own minions, of course, but the decision by the DOJ to cease pursuing any of the fake ginned-up charges.
Obama, that putative “expert” (that quotation mark key on my computer is getting quite a workout) on constitutional law, had this to say: …
“And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free.”
Perjury? A first-year law student knows the difference between lying to the FBI — in a matter in which there is no evidence of any crime whatsoever, and the target is not allowed to have a lawyer or be read his rights or even informed he’s being interrogated as a target — and perjury. Obama knows it, too, so why did he use the word? He probably thinks it’s a good talking point because it sounds really bad, and he doesn’t think most people will care about the finer points. …
Obama is a sanctimonius, arrogant, dangerous, viper.
What really is without precedent — at least in the US, although not in certain countries usually referred to as “banana republics — is the way in which Obama used the DOJ and the FBI and the entire state apparatus to spy on and destroy an incoming president of the opposing party. Watergate was a tea party compared to this.
And indeed, as Obama pointed out (and he should know) “when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”
Obama also mentioned in that leaked phone call that he is “pretty darn invested” in a Democratic victory.
“Pretty darn invested” -– well, that’s certainly an understatement. He’s “pretty darn invested” indeed … to protect himself from further revelations at the hands of Barr and Trump. If Biden is elected, all of the investigations into Obama’s role will be dropped like a radioactive potato.
Are they going to get away with it?
The swamp has sabotaged the US response to the coronavirus, leaving the borders wide open for reinfection, rendering the US lockdown ineffective. The virus will flare up as economic pain forces reopening. Trump will likely cop the blame and be voted out of office.
The victors will rewrite history: Obama will be a hero, maybe Trump did collude with Russia, and Trump was mad, bad, and dangerous. 2020 was the year that the USA finally turned decisively away from its white, European and Christian roots, increasingly opening its borders for all of humanity and beginning the long, natural ascendancy of the left. The USA became a multicultural, diverse, and unexceptional country. China took its place as the technological, economic, and political leader of the world.
