This week delivered two bits of very bad news for the Obama Administration: Top Republican lawmakers formally requested the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the Justice Department’s conduct in 2016 and 2017, and long-withheld documents related to the Operation Fast and Furious scandal will finally be released to Congress.

It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving bunch.

The public behavior by several Obama officials since Donald Trump’s election has been shameful and shameless. It would be easy to write it off as sour grapes, to treat them like a sad group of ex-wives grumbling about why they got dumped. But their actions are more insidious—and unprecedented—than that. Bitter about their unexpected defeat in November 2016 and terrified that their Trump-Russia conspiracy scheme will be exposed in full by Congress, Obama loyalists have been working overtime to discredit the president, smear Republican lawmakers, and keep the focus on Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign.

Just days after Trump won the election, Josh Earnest, Obama’s press secretary, openly began to question the legitimacy of Trump’s victory and peddled Trump-Russia conspiracy tales to an eager, Trump-hating press corps. Obama holdover Sally Yates refused to enforce Trump’s travel ban in her position as acting Attorney General. (She is now emerging as a central figure in the case against Michael Flynn.)

Loretta Lynch, Obama’s last attorney general, recorded a video advocating violence to resist the new administration, comparing it to other great American struggles. “It has been people, individuals, who have banded together, who simply saw what needed to be done, who have made the difference,” Lynch said. “They’ve marched. They’ve bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is.”

Former FBI director James Comey, who was fired by Trump in May 2017, routinely tweets cryptic—if not childish—political messages aimed at the president and Congress while defending the agency whose credibility he helped degrade:

And ol’ Uncle Joe Biden told CNN’s Chris Cuomo last month that Trump is a “joke.”

As congressional investigations close in on uncovering possible corruption related to the handling of the Christopher Steele dossier in the waning months of the Obama administration, former top officials are now ratcheting up their criticism of the president. Obama’s so-called “wingman,” former Attorney General Eric Holder, seems particularly vexed lately. He has called for the abolition of the Electoral College, referred to Trump as “an orange man,” and blamed him for empowering neo-Nazis. In an interview with Rachel Maddow last month, Holder suggested that the president should be charged with obstruction of justice and claimed “any one of my kids would make a better president than Donald Trump.” WIthout any sense of irony, the only attorney general to have been held in contempt of Congress blasted Jeff Sessions for not protecting his people at the Justice Department from political pressure. (Stop laughing. No, go ahead.)

But it was his appearance last weekend on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” that might backfire on Holder. When Maher asked for his response to a backhanded compliment Trump made about him, Holder smugly responded: “The difference between me and Jeff Sessions is that I had a president I did not have to protect.” He repeatedly defended Obama as clean and scandal-free—”I think he (Trump) actually believes that there were things that were done wrong or illegally by Barack Obama and it comes from the Fox [News] blogosphere. It’s simply not true.” (The former president himself is peddling that myth. At a private event last month, Obama insisted that his administration “didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.”)

Holder’s criticism might’ve been the last straw for Sessions as he announced Wednesday that his department will hand over documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious to the House Oversight Committee, ending “six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce documents requested by the Committee.” (It was Holder’s refusal to release those documents that led to his contempt charge.)

But the man who is spinning the hardest right now is John Brennan, Obama’s former CIA director. Not only are Brennan’s malicious remarks totally inappropriate for someone who once served as the nation’s top intelligence officer, he seems desperate to put up a public defense of his role in disseminating the dossier. It’s probably not a coincidence that Brennan just started tweeting a few months ago, as questions about his involvement in peddling the Steele dossier to lawmakers in 2016 and the unmasking of Trump campaign associates started to surface. (His Twitter bio says he is a “nonpartisan American.” LOL.)

Nearly every tweet has been a personal attack on the president: He has compared Trump to a “narcissistic, vengeful autocrat,” called him a “deeply flawed person,” and “small, petty, and banal.” He’s defended Mueller’s investigation and said it is “implausible” that the Russians didn’t sway votes in 2016. But, like Holder, Brennan may have kicked the hornet’s nest too many times. On February 1, Brennan tweeted this:

A few days later, on “Meet the Press,” Brennan accused Devin Nunes, chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, of “abus(ing) the office of the chairmanship.” Two weeks later, Nunes sent a letter to several current and former intelligence and law enforcement officials asking questions about how the Steele dossier was used in obtaining a FISA warrant on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. Brennan was on the list.

Since then, Brennan has been on a full-fledged propaganda tour, vilifying the president in a truly despicable manner. In an outrageous interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace on March 2, Brennan called Trump, “unstable, inept, and unethical.” He said he has “serious, serious doubts” that Trump will ensure the country is “safe, secure and prosperous in the future.” He also went after Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and claimed the president was not reading national security information. The man who did basically nothing to stop so-called Russian election interference for years repeatedly blasted the Trump administration for not moving quicker to protect us from future incursions.

Then, the former CIA director tweeted this to the president:

Outrageous.

Brennan might want to take a break from spouting off on Twitter and friendly cable news programs and practice his legal defense in private. In a fierce takedown in Tablet magazine, writer Lee Smith said Brennan is “having trouble keeping his Trump-Russia stories straight.” (Not shocking considering his unreliable relationship with the truth.)

Smith questioned Brennan’s recent claim on “Meet the Press” that he didn’t see the dossier until December 2016:

That makes no sense. In July, Brennan alerted the FBI to the possibility that Russia is seeking to interfere in the presidential election. In August, he briefed the White House and then congressional leaders on Russia’s attempts to influence the election for the purpose of putting Trump in the White House. In December, the CIA assessed that Russia had done exactly that. But for five months, Brennan didn’t bother to look at a document widely discussed for months by the Washington press corps that deals explicitly with the issue that has the director of the Central Intelligence Agency setting off fire alarms at the FBI, Congress, and the White House?

As the Trump-Russia plotline starts to unravel and the real culprits—political operatives disguised as law enforcement agents, intelligence community professionals and Obama cabinet members—are fingered, we can expect to hear more vituperation from these folks. What’s the old saying about protesting too much?

          Combined with Russian bribery (shelved by Mueller during CFIUS review of Uranium One), speech fees and money to Clinton organizations arising from the deal, the quick swap by Clinton of the Russian Ghost Stories spy ring, and Hillary’s national security violations, there are plenty of unethical, criminal, and national security violations to be thoroughly investigated and not whitewashed over as the Obama administration clearly did. The Steele dossier – involving Russian operatives – was used to divert attention from Hillary’s violations and onto Trump using salacious and unverified information.

    Concerned Citizen says:

    There’s so much that’s really wrong with this article, but to pick one easy example – Ms. Kelly writes that Loretta Lynch “advocated violence” against the Trump administration, but the quote by Lynch is actually an example of non-violent resistance to violent actions by a government. If Ms. Kelly is willing to distort and mislead like that, I don’t know why anything she writes should be trusted.

    • Carrington Spensor
      Carrington Spensor says:

      There’s so much that’s really wrong with your comment…

They’ve bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is.”

      If that statement is not “advocating violence”, what is it advocating? And why the need for that statement? Seems to me to be far more then the “dog whistle” lefties are always accusing anyone of that doesn’t agree with them of hearing.

      I know this may be a reach for you – but I’ve watched American presidential administrations change since 1956. See, America changes administrations as it votes in new leaders. Never once have I (or any other American) seen anything remotely like the statement that Loretta Lynch – a former Attorney General – put out by a highly placed member of the previous government. The rest of Ms. Kelly’s article details more Obama administration people doing the same thing….and she left dozens of others out.

      One has to go back to the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 to see anything like what transpired after the election of 2016. Democrats didn’t like the results. They wanted to keep the cheap slave labor they had. They decided that if they didn’t like Federal laws stemming from the US Constitution, they would simply ignore them and make up their own.

      Since 2016 it’s been Deja Vu all over again. Perhaps if would you spend some time reading the US Constitution and learning something about American history, you’d be an even more “concerned citizen”……but for totally different reasons.

            Concerned Citizen says:

            Do you know anything about the civil-rights era in the South? That’s clearly a description of the movement led by MLK, and the violence in that movement was directed against the marchers, who then bled and sometimes died.

        It’s harder to explain what else is wrong without having to rewrite the article, which is written from a completely distorted point of view, such as that there’s something wrong with investigating Russian interference in the election.

        • Yankee_Doodler
          Yankee_Doodler says:

          The investigation was purportedly into Russian collusion, on the media-driven assumption that the Trump campaign conspired to subvert the election–otherwise, how could shoe-in Hillary have lost? Oddly, the resulting discoveries of Russian-political collusion have implicated the DNC, the Hillary campaign and Obama’s administration. Ask Seth Rich.

          • Concerned Citizen
            Concerned Citizen says:

            First, the media didn’t make assumptions about collusion; they’ve just reported on what’s being investigated.
            Second, it’s Trump himself who’s been driving the publicity about this by his non-stop complaints about it and his efforts to delegitimize it.
            Finally, I’m okay with letting the chips fall where they may. If Clinton, Obama or any other Democrat did something wrong they should be treated appropriately. Why doesn’t the President want to let the investigation run its course?

          • Yankee_Doodler
            Yankee_Doodler says:

            Mueller was appointed as special council in answer to political pressure whipped-up by the liberal media. It’s abundantly clear at this point that there never were any underlying facts to implicate Trump or his campaign–just a salacious dossier of opposition research (assembled with contributions from Russian operatives). Trump fights back with his Twitter lightening bolts because he relishes a good fight–it’s his MO. Frankly, I’m surprised he’s allowed the Mueller investigation to drag on unimpeded this long. Perhaps he calculated from the start that the investigators ultimately would be the ones exposed in a prolonged investigation? When the DOJ IG report hits, it’ll be fascinating to see just what Mueller’s team has been avoiding in its research.

          • Yankee_Doodler
            Yankee_Doodler says:

            Nah, meddling is the re-write. It was Trump in collusion with the Russians initially, per the media. That didn’t play out to their satisfaction. Regarding Mueller’s spotless record and his Republican credentials, check out his tenure as FBI director during the events known as the Clinton Uranium One Scandal. Such a great country, where money can buy anything.

    • Evan
      Evan says:

      The most charitable reading of Loretta Lynch’s words is she was completely unaware that the left can march all they want and nobody will attack them as long as they’re peaceful. A more realistic reading is she was trying to liken the left to 60s civil rights protesters and the right to 60s Democrats. It’s disgusting given who’s actually committing almost all of the violence, but it’s not advocating violence. The least charitable interpretation is she knew who was responsible for most of the blood in the streets and was subtly egging it on.

      I think the second interpetation is most likely. Nonetheless, it’s worth noting that nobody in the Obama administation, to my knowledge, ever told the left to cut it out with all the violence.

            You know, your earlier comment shows that you’re neither dumb nor entirely unfair. But this comment is one or the other – it’s a complete cop-out. You made an allegation that “the left” is engaging in “all the violence,” with no reference to any acts of violence. I sincerely have no idea what you’re talking about, and said so. You’ve decided not to answer the question, and then you argue that I’m the one refusing to respond substantively. I don’t get it.

          • Evan
            Evan says:

            I did not say the left is responsible for all the violence. I said in one place almost all of the violence and in another place I said most of the blood in the streets.

            I think I know what part you’re spinning. Now for story time. Once upon a time, I would put great care and energy into meticulously making my arguments as air-tight and spin-proof as possible. What I eventually learned was that if I was talking to someone who was discussing in good faith, there was no need for that. If I was talking to a bad faith actor, all the cautious over-analyzed qualified language in the world wouldn’t matter.

            I think if you agreed with what I said, you would understand it as written just fine.

          • Concerned Citizen
            Concerned Citizen says:

            First, you wrote that somebody in the Obama administration should have told “the left” to stop “all the violence.” For some reason you refuse to say what you’re talking about, even though I’ve asked and even though you write lengthy cryptic responses doing everything but engaging with me in a straightforward manner.
            Second, I happen to agree with you about the difficulty of finding an opinion stated in good faith. I’m sure that Ms. Kelly’s article is completely lacking in good faith. Sometimes commenters will engage in good faith, but more often it’s just propaganda or trolling. I’m trying to give you the benefit of the doubt, but after a promising start you seem to want to avoid saying anything, while directing passive-aggressive insults toward me.
            Regarding your last line, I don’t think you’ve actually said anything substantive that I can agree or disagree with.

          • Evan
            Evan says:

            “Cut it out with all the violence” = “cut it out with all the violence that they’re doing.” Obviously they can’t cut out the little bit of violence they’re not responsible for and it’s obvious I refer only to political violence. If your mom ever told you “Cut it out with all the yapping”, she’s not saying you’re doing 100% of the world’s yapping. She’s only talking about all the yapping that you’re doing. If someone had told the left “cut it out with most of the violence”, that would imply they were allowed to commit some violence.

            The violence I refer to is all the riots , the antifa stuff, and the shutting down of conservative speakers.

          • Concerned Citizen
            Concerned Citizen says:

            I don’t know why it was like pulling teeth to get you to identify what you were talking about.
            Anyway, you said that no one in the Obama Administration had told “the left” to stop what you’ve now identified as “the riots, the Antifa stuff, and the shutting down of conservative speakers.” The thing is that you’re proceeding on a false assumption. It took me literally 45 seconds to find numerous news articles in which Obama himself – not just someone from his administration – spoke out against violent protests in Ferguson, Baltimore, and Charlotte. Regarding Antifa, I quickly found other Democratic leaders including Nancy Pelosi condemning their violent tactics.

            So I don’t know what to tell you other than you’re just wrong on the facts.

          • Evan
            Evan says:

            You’re right about the race riots and I remember at some point he told college students to stop shutting down speakers they disagree with, so good on him for that. As for antifa, for a long while, Democrats were pretty much silent about them and some may have lended them support. I’d look it up, but meh. Mitt Romney certainly lended them support and so did much of the media. Then, as I recall, around the last week of August, the media and Nancy Pelosi started to condemn them pretty much in unison. Guess someone got out the message that the antifa thing wasn’t playing well out in the sticks.

            I argued with this leftist fanatic last month and it was a total waste of time. Something I’ve noticed about such people though is that they always carefully ignore what I say or links I provide about the left’s Identity Politics and apparent fondness for open borders.

            Why do they always dodge such issues? Most probably because they support such policies and don’t want to admit it. What always seems so incredibly bizarre to me about this situation is that most of my coworkers in Chicago are from places like Vietnam, Mexico and Iraq ( Assyrians ) and I just feel I have infinitely more in common with these people from foreign countries ( who I know quite well since I talk to them every work day ) than with white leftists who were born and raised here as I was. Certainly a very strange situation.

            After living in Pennsylvania for awhile, you learn things from people if you are generally a friendly person. The Black Panther thing was real, and it did intimidate a number of people from voting (all white, what a surprise!).

            You are completely wrong – if our voting process is taken over by thugs, then we have NO country. It was the same in New York City. When Giuliani took over things were in the toilet, thugs everywhere, graffiti on any available vertical structure, trash and debris all over, and the crime rate out of site. Mayor G said to the police not to focus on just the big stuff, like the previous administration said, because you have to keep the small stuff very small, or you’d never tamp down the big. If you know ANYTHING about psychology, you’d know this for a Truth.

          • The Norwalk Avenger
            The Norwalk Avenger says:

            We aren’t here to discuss psychology, so what I know, or don’t would appear to be irrelevant. What I do know about this case is that hundreds of NBPs fanned out across the greater Philly area, and this was the only case in which anything of any import happened. Furthermore, the decision to drop criminal charges came from the Bush AG, not Cleric Holder. It was made mostly because only 1 guy had an actual weapon. The other guy was mainly guilty of standing outside of a polling place, being big and black and otherwise looking stupid, but that’s not a crime.

            Someone broke it down for me this way “As to the idiot with the stick. From the tape and from the testimony he has a problem with the polling place monitors and threatened them. That sounds like a great case for possession of a deadly weapon, maybe even a case for terrorist threats (the legal term for a threatening statement with the ability to carry it out). But as for intimidating voters, polling station workers are not voters. The state crimes connected with carrying a deadly weapon in public seem to apply perfectly but for voter intimidation, you need an actual voter. Third hand testimony (that potential voters drove off) can’t figure into the analysis because saying you saw a voter leave is inadmissible speculation. In court, a witness can’t testify as to why someone did something. That’s a matter “not within the witness’s knowledge” and even if they heard a statement it would be “inadmissible hearsay.””

            It just sounds like the Bush AG couldn’t make the case, unless he was in the tank for the New Black Panthers also? Occam would have a field day with this one….

    1) Our economy; huge gifts to our enemies, printing presses running 24/7/360 for inflation,
    2) Our military; downsizing to less than pre-WW2, purging of the best officers, etc.

    4) Releasing Muzz terrorists from Guantanomo
    5) Appointing AG’s who refused to prosecute blacks and Libs
    6) Executive Orders (mostly illegal) designed to complicate, confuse, and block government and industry as much as possible.
    7) Breaking our auto industry; Chrysler given to Italy, GM given to the socialist U.S. Unions.
    8) Fast and Furious; no comment necessary.
    9) Killing a great health insurance system with costly, complex and impossible Obamacare.
    10) Creating racial division and disregarding prosecution in regard to breakage of longstanding laws.

      That single fact of him spending 20 years in such a viciously racist church is enough to show what kind of a person he is and to totally disqualify him from ever being in the government in any role let alone as a two term president.

      Just imagine the hysteria there’d be on the left if it were suddenly discovered that Trump had spent 20 years in a church that had given David Duke a lifetime achievement award. They’d claim it was absolute proof that Trump is a Nazi, that he needs to be impeached immediately and all those who voted for that monster need to be tracked down and punished for voting for someone so obviously evil.

Almost single handed he fought to balance the budget while saddling the US with almost as much debt as every single president together did in the history of our nation.

No, you need a lawyer who can prove to the court that you’re not guilty — or run the risk of a date with an electric chair you can’t get from the Scooter Store.

Did they repeatedly radio for help? Did US forces in Italy mount up a rescue attempt, only to be told to stand down? Did four Americans die as a result? Was the US theater commander relieved of duty during the attack?

    advocating violence to resist the new administration, comparing it to
    other great American struggles. “It has been people, individuals, who
    have banded together, who simply saw what needed to be done, who have
    made the difference,” Lynch said. “They’ve marched. They’ve bled. Yes,

    Excerpt from “Pavlich: Hillary would have lost even if Obama was tougher on Russia.”

    “In fact, Obama admitted there is no way American elections can be rigged and laughed at the suggestion they somehow could be.

    “The larger point I want to emphasize here is that there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even — you could even rig America’s elections, in part, because they are so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved,” Obama said in October 2016 Rose Garden press conference. “There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time. And so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes.”

    That’s precisely what President Trump did. He campaigned hard in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida and Pennsylvania. He came close to winning in Minnesota. By reaching out to rural voters, he flipped more than 100 counties from blue to red. As noted by CNBC, some of those counties turned Republican by more than 30 points. Clinton didn’t put in the work and paid the consequences when she came up short on election night.

    We’ve been over this ground before and yet somehow more than a year later the narrative continues to imply the reason Clinton lost was because of Russian interference. She lost because she was a terrible, out-of-touch candidate.”

    Alex Courtois says:

    “What’s the old saying about protesting too much?” asks the journalist defending a president who has done nothing but protest against the “witch hunt” that has already led to 18 people being charged, including 3 guilty pleas. Yet the President believes Putin when he says the Russians didn’t do anything, and he has refused to implement punitive sanctions voted by the Republican Congress against Russia. Curious.
    What’s equally curious is this journalist’s lack of any supporting facts when she claims it is “outrageous” that Trump routinely misrepresents facts. Maybe that’s because no other president in history has ever been caught in so many lies big and small in so little time. This is a president who can’t even accept that his inauguration wasn’t the most attended and/or most watched in history. This is a president who has claimed his electoral college victory was the largest since Reagan. Who claims the Pulse shooting wouldn’t have happened the same way had an armed person been present (there was an armed guard), who claimed there was massive voter fraud in support of Clinton and yet shut down his own investigation into the matter, who claims he signed more legislation than Truman when in fact he ranks last, who claimed rich people wouldn’t get a dime in his tax cuts, who claimed he never wanted the US to invade Iraq when in fact he tweeted in favor of it… the list goes on and on and on. A charlatan indeed.

      • Alex Courtois
        Alex Courtois says:

        Yeah, in fairness to Trump, his collusion with Russia did at least expose Hillary’s unhealthy hold on the DNC. It’s just a shame that Trump was the only other option.
        But let me open a small parenthesis here to say what a lazy argument the “free everything” claim is. Trump just passed tax reform that opens up a huge hole in the budget, he wants an infrastructure package that would deepen the gash, and for the past 50 years the fact is that Republican presidents have increased the deficit while Democrats have slashed it. So who is the party giving away free money?

        But this was about Trump protesting too much about the Russia investigation and Brennan’s more than justified comments about him. The fact that Hillary lied and cheated has no bearing here.

      An excerpt below from a Real Clear Politics article called “Who Believes in Russiagate?: Knowledgable reporters on the left and right are frightened by the spread of an elite conspiracy theory among American media.” By Lee Smith

      By far the best I’ve read about the “Russian collusion” story promoted by the left. What will the left say about this? They’ll say what they always say which is that those who oppose them are White Supremacist Nazis ( or their dupes ) who want to “Make America White Again!” Judge for yourself what the truth is.

      http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/256899/left-right-russiagate

      “Half the country hates Donald Trump, and even the half that thinks he’s doing a good job often flinch from his boorishness, his nasty public attacks, sometimes even on his own aides. For all the top talent he says he’s surrounded himself with, the president repeatedly attracts among the worst that Washington—and New York—have to offer. No doubt that’s one reason why whatever is thrown at him seems to stick.

      At the same time, there is a growing consensus among reporters and thinkers on the left and right—especially those who know anything about Russia, the surveillance apparatus, and intelligence bureaucracy—that the Russiagate-collusion theory that was supposed to end Trump’s presidency within six months has sprung more than a few holes. Worse, it has proved to be a cover for U.S. intelligence and law-enforcement bureaucracies to break the law, with what’s left of the press gleefully going along for the ride. Where Watergate was a story about a crime that came to define an entire generation’s oppositional attitude toward politicians and the country’s elite, Russiagate, they argue, has proved itself to be the reverse: It is a device that the American elite is using to define itself against its enemies—the rest of the country.”

    Max Flasher says:

    Here’s an excerpt from a Peggy Noonan article in the Wall Street Journal called “Over Trump, We’re as Divided as Ever” March 10-11, 2018. She talks of the positive things Trump has done like rolling back excessive regulations, tax reform, a good Supreme Court judge and many conservative judges on lower courts but she says “So you, moderate, centrist professional, should feel high enthusiasm for Trump. And yet you don’t, not really. What you feel is disquiet, and you know what it’s about; the worrying nature of Mr. Trump himself.”

    “It all feels so dangerous.” And “Centrists and moderates are seeing what Trump supporters cannot, will not see.”

    I would say though that such people are blind to what I see which is that the left has become quite insane and sees white people as the enemy that must be defeated. The problem we have here is that even if it’s true that Trump is a totally worthless person he’s still infinitely better than anything on the hate whitey, open borders ( the border state of California is now a “Sanctuary State” ) ever more insane left.

    So why don’t these people see what I see? Probably because they’re not familiar enough with the nightmarish history of so much of Europe and Asia during the dreadful twentieth century to know how distressingly common it is for societies to become insane and attack themselves and others plus many of them probably don’t read enough to know what’s going on here.

    “The Censorious Left’s Latest Mania: ‘Decolonizing Everything’ has a subtitle which says “Their obsession with destroying white, euro-centric ‘domination,’ wherever it may be, has become patronizing and authoritarian.”

    “The move to decolonize is not based on a nuanced critique of the West’s historical legacy. We cannot have a discussion that asks how and why colonialism occurred, and considers its impact then and now, because the conclusions have already been decided for us. Rather than questioning the past we must remove all trace of it from our universities, architecture, and food. We must start history afresh.”

    Anyone familiar with Mao’s Red Guard during the Cultural Revolution ( 1966/1976 ) would immediately recognize what’s going on here.

        I recently read an article by Andrew Sullivan called “We All Live on Campus Now” where he describes what’s happened to the gay rights movement. This is a good description of what’s happened to the left in general though rather than just gays in particular. Here’s an excerpt:

        “As many of us saw our goals largely completed and moved on, the far left filled the void. The movement is now rhetorically as much about race and gender as it is about sexual orientation (“intersectionality”), prefers alternatives to marriage to marriage equality, sees white men as “problematic,” masculinity as toxic, gender as fluid, and race as fundamental. They have no desire to seem “virtually normal”; they are contemptuous of “respectability politics” — which means most politics outside the left. Above all, they have advocated transgenderism, an ideology that goes far beyond recognizing the dignity and humanity and civil equality of trans people into a critique of gender, masculinity, femininity, and heterosexuality. “Live and let live” became: “If you don’t believe gender is nonbinary, you’re a bigot.” I would be shocked if this sudden lurch in the message didn’t in some way negatively affect some straight people’s views of gays.”

            My bother was gay and he wasn’t mentally ill. I don’t agree with gay marriage but I have nothing against gays. My brother had AIDS and used barbiturates he’d gotten from a male nurse to commit suicide. The last year of his life was a nightmare of constant pain and physical disintegration.

            I was with him when his doctor told him he had at most six months to live, My brother asked for barbiturates to end his life. The doctor said no. A male nurse called me aside and told me he’d bring him the pills. When we left the doctor’s office I told my brother what the nurse had told me. He said “Oh, thank God!” and almost collapsed.

            He could have shot himself or hung himself but such deaths are solitary, gruesome and a great shock for whoever finds the body. Being able to end his life when he decided and to die with dignity with family and friends was the only thing he had left in his life that he could control so he was naturally greatly relieved to have the pills that enabled him to do this.

            Something like euthanasia can be abused but then how about the abuse that occurs when someone is forced to die a ghastly death, slowly but surely?

            I’m mostly conservative but definitely believe that things like euthanasia and abortion should be legal and up to the individual person to decide and I have no negative feelings about gays. It’s a shame that the left has ruined the gay rights movement but then they’ve also ruined this whole country.

            Dummy. The inability to transition to a new government after an election is a classic sign of a failed state. Half the country refuses to accept Trump as president and has even established the “Resistance!” to oppose him. America is now a failed state.

            I recently read an interview with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas who said we really no longer have anything in common with each other in this society.

            Isn’t commonality a necessary ingredient though for a functional society? How about social cohesion and trust? Our lack of social cohesion and trust is making it ever more difficult to solve any of our problems. Social cohesion and trust are the foundation of a society. Where is our foundation? Where is the inner structure of our society? How long can the outer structure of our society remain intact without an inner structure to hold it together?

            Many people believe America is simply too big and too powerful to collapse but many people also believed that about the Soviet Union. No one in 1985 would have believed that the USSR, the mighty “Evil Empire”, would be a disintegrating mess in 10 years.

            I told that to someone last year who said “But the Soviet Union was a collection of separate countries”. What we have here though is a collection of separate realities which is a much deadlier situation.

            America was extremely fortunate to have avoided the raging insanity that ravaged so many countries during the dreadful twentieth century. Our luck seems to have run out.

            You are an ignorant piece of garbage. A good example of why this once great nation is now a failed state. No society can survive the ever more intense hatred we have for each other in this place. Time will tell what fate has in store for us.

  31. Rod
    Rod says:

    There’s an additional piece of bad news for ex-Obama-administration operatives that came out this week that’s not mentioned, and it’s far worse for them than the two covered in the article.

    AG Sessions, in response to Gowdy’s and Goodlatte’s request for a special counsel announced that he’d already appointed someone to investigate the concerns of Gowdy and Goodlatte. For all we know, that investigation might already have been going on for several months by now. In fact, it’s likely that it has, since IG Horowitz is compelled to bring any indications of criminality that he uncovers in his own investigation to the attention of the DOJ (since an Inspector General doesn’t handle criminal cases. And also since Sessions, unlike Holder, would have been more likely to assign a prosecutor to address Horowitz’s concerns than Holder would have when he was Attorney General.

    If that proves to be the case, things are much further along, which could well explain the panicky behavior of the likes of Brennan and Holder recently, both of whom are likely targets of criminal behavior if the investigators dig deep enough.

    I now think that the upcoming IG report is going to be immediately followed by a report by the assigned prosecutor and that indictments will be announced at the same time. Granted, that’s a hope of mine, but it’s also where logic leads. Those in power today must certainly realize that the weaponization of the various agencies under the Obama administration must not be allowed to happen again, and that the only way to discourage it from happening again is to send the perpetrators to jail.

    Since we can assume he did know, why did he fail to disclose that information ? Will he be asked about that before a grand jury ?
    I still find it interesting that after the Joint Intel. Report ordered in the final days of the last administration found no evidence of collusion as reported by Clapper and Brennan, that the FBI did not close shop on its investigation and let all of this fade into history after the election. Was it fear of the ongoing OIG investigation and who would be implicated – who needed absolution
    from the pending decision of the FISA CT ? (SEE last 5 pages of opinion rendered in 2017 pointing to systematic abuse)

    Most of the people I work with in Chicago are foreign immigrants from places like Vietnam, Mexico and Iraq ( Assyrians ). I know them quite well since we work long hours together and talk about all kinds of things. I feel have infinitely more in common with these people from foreign countries than with white leftists born and raised here as I was.

    I don’t believe things like race, religion or ethnicity are the bottom line for having a functional society although they certainly can be. I think the bottom line is simply how people think or perceive reality. This is where I feel great commonality with my coworkers and none at all with white leftists who seem utterly alien and incomprehensible to me.
