The Power Of The Purse (Is No Power At All)

 

So, I'm watching The Bottom Line with Dagen & Duffy (above) and Representative Kat Cammack is being asked what can be done about the FBI defying Congress? Her reply is, well, “We have the power of the purse.” A phrase I've heard James Comer use as well. A phrase that will not do. 


“The power of the purse” may hurt the esteem of some of these fools at work, but it does nothing for the fractured friendships and families of the people back home. “The power of the purse” may crimp the FBI's ability to carry out its more outrageous ideas, but does nothing to enlighten those duped by their fraud to change their ways. No one's going to decide Rachel Maddow and Stephen Colbert were wrong because the FBI didn’t get their new headquarters. 


“The power of the purse” does not wipe that smug off Christopher Wray’s face. “The power of the purse” does not stop the swish of Peter Strzok’s shoulders. The only thing that can do that is explaining to their grandkids why they had to go to prison.  


This nonsense went on for five long years. That's a sort of prison sentence, all by itself. And they sat back and laughed the whole time. That is no way for the American people to feel.


Christopher Wray knows why he was brought in by Trump and he betrayed his mandate - to serve who? Hillary Clinton, not the President of the United States. That's worthy of prison by itself. How dare he bullshit us. Who did he think he is? Who do any of these people think they are? Christopher Wray isn't listening to the President, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page don't give a fuck about their spouses – no one needed evidence for anything they’ve done – who in the fuck did they think they are?  


We were promised, before we knew everything Hillary Clinton was behind, that we would “Lock her up!” and that promise should be kept - for her and all of her accomplices, aiding what they've been doing for the last few years, since Donald Trump has been in politics, and even before that.  


Or do we forget Bill Clinton has three women credibly accusing him of rape? One of them, Juanita Broderick, has had her claim verified for decades by Lisa Myers of NBC, Christopher Hitchens of Vanity Fair, and Ronan Farrow, also from Vanity Fair. Yet, he’s walking around in the Hamptons like a celebrity, when he should be in prison. But he has the power, or what Christopher Hitchens called the “eerie” ability to control the media, and keep them turned toward Monica or anything else. 


“The power of the purse” sounds too much like something Doug Mulvaney is selling. We need prison.

  
“It all comes back to a central problem: It always seems like, when it comes to the Bidens, or the Clintons for that matter, if you go back a little while, they're treated differently than everybody else.”  

- Georgia Congressman Doug Collins (above)


When Hillary Clinton assumed she was going to win the 2016 election, she invited two reporters to document the event, which didn't turn out the way she assumed. Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes continued to report on the aftermath, and said “Within 24 hours of her concession speech, [campaign chair John Podesta and manager Robby Mook] assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.” 


Setting the world on fire. By way of the FBI in the CIA, With 24 hours of her loss. 


And just to fool her own voters. 


Nobody on the Right was gullible enough to think Jeff Sessions was working for the Ruskies.


Joe Biden’s corruption, featuring hiding Hunter Biden's laptop to flip the 2020 election, the falsifying of FISA applications to spy on the Predsident, even the adultery of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, fit so snuggly in the cesspool Jeffrey Epstein called a Jacuzzi, it's hard not to think that rather than discussing the crimes of those within the federal government, we're investigating “The Lifestyle” that may have killed CashApp founder, Bob Lee, where it was said 'There are a lot of swingers, cheaters and liars in that crowd’. 


How is “the power of the purse” going to affect that? The FBI can’t buy drinks for everybody no more? 


No, these are crimes and we demand prison. Prison. And nothing else will do.

"Democracy Dies in Darkness" Is NOT Supposed To Be A New Racial Statement

Tim Graham: Networks celebrate Harris as 'historic,' which protects her from the kind of scrutiny reporters usually apply


John Kass: "That ABC and CNN still call themselves news networks is testimony to the arrogance of their executives and the stupidity of their audience."


Matt Taibbi: Mainstream media 'in sync' with Democratic Party
Edward Helmore: CNN mess over Cuomo shows dangers of news-as-entertainment
 

You Better Recognize

Hillary Clinton says Americans won't 'recognize our country' if Trump wins in 2024
Brian Williams Quits TV: America In 2021 Is "Unrecognizable"

We're Never Going To Get Anywhere (Until We Square These Two Media Images)

Oprah Winfrey,...promotes the paranormal, psychic powers, new age spiritualism, conspiracy theories, quack celebrity diets, past life regression, angels, ghosts, alternative therapies like acupuncture and homeopathy, anti-vaccination, detoxification, vitamin megadosing, and virtually everything that will distract a human being from making useful progress and informed decisions in life. Although much of what she promotes is not directly harmful, she offers no distinction between the two, leaving the gullible public increasingly and incrementally injured with virtually every episode. [Emphasis TMR]

Oprah Winfrey has proven to be a good, caring person. She has helped thousands of people and undoubtedly will help many more. She is one of America’s rare, self-made billionaires and there is much to admire about her personal story. Born to an unwed teen mother, she lived for years in poverty. Because of her dysfunctional childhood, her “street-cred IQ” remains high. Winfrey also has proven her intellectual horsepower across a broad spectrum of interests.

The Things Women Will Do (For Leggings To Shape Their Asses) Are Remarkable

Discovery+ has (what they're calling) a "true crime documentary" named "The Rise and Fall of LuLaRoe" that (supposedly) investigates the multi-level marketing/direct sales/pyramid scheme of the clothing brand, LuLaRoe. Not to be confused with the so-uninvestigated-it's-criminal clothing brand, Lulalemon, which was merely a cult

 

France (The Real Deal In Three Quotes)

"What I gained in France was to be better satisfied with my own country." 

– Samuel Johnson 

"France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country." 

– Mark Twain 

"A helpless, hopeless mass of protoplasm." 

– President Dwight D. Eisenhower
 

Broken Glass - Everywhere - People Pissin' On Stage Like They Just Don't Care

 

If you wonder why America is "unrecognizable" to MSNBC's Brian Williams - a known liar - look no further than the R-word: "Reality painfully crashes the illusions of Biden Democrats". 

The destruction of their belief system is just the "break" we've been waiting for.
 

One Of Journalism's Emperors Has No Clothes (But That's Gay Dudes For You)

Andrew Sullivan now says "The Woke: On The Wrong Side Of History (We need a racial politics for 2119, not 1619. Latinos will lead the way") but, when Obama was hot, he also said "Is anyone as unsurprised as I am that he's a Leo?" (and don't make me bring up the Sarah Palin shit). What''s unsurprising is, in all this time, he's never entertained (or, apparently, had it seriously suggested to him) that - even though he writes his ass off - his ability to reason may have an OBVIOUS flaw in it. So, I think, he could be mistaken about woke. 

Andrew Sullivan has simply never understood the world around him.

Jussie Smollett Is The Democrat Party's Unsuccessful Version Of Harvey Milk

Just as the kidnapping lowlife, Harvey Milk, blew up his own camera store to blame homophobia for his problems, Jussie Smollett got himself beat up to do the same - but events haven't gone as well. The public bought all the lies around Milk - even after death - while Smollett's were seen through, almost immediately. So there will be no new Democrat laws for us to live under, no public acceptance or codes of behavior demanded, and no new lies for the rest of us (and future generations) to swallow and live under, as a result.
And, because Democrats run the media, there will also be no serious investigation into how the party, over time, has spun it's lies to warp reality - all the way back from Harvey Milk, Jim Jones, and the hunt for Hillary Clinton's "rightwing conspiracy", to Jussie Smollett, Oprah Winfrey, and (also Hillary Clinton's) Russia Hoax, today. This lack of action, on the part of the media, is so the party's PBS-watching supporters will have learned nothing, and will continue pretending they (and we) have ever seen anything, eyes wide shut. 

How are they being different from the Soviet Union again?

The Daily Show: Right Over The Target (And It'll Still Be A Miss)

 

The people who've insisted "life is an illusion" and we must "question authority" (and even "reality isn't real") started the plague of conspiracy theories - not a bunch of wild-eyed patriots who don't fear Donald Trump just because Rachel Maddow gave them the high sign. But Jordan Keppler's just getting around to them. Almost as an afterthought. And this piece will be the end of his interest.

Because NewAge has the whole world turned upside-down.
