Grassley vs. The Deep State, We Can’t Ignore The Past, A Key Fact

Grassley vs. The Deep State


Yesterday, Senator Charles Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray.  


According to Sen. Grassley, multiple “highly credible whistleblowers” have provided information indicating that key FBI and Justice Department officials appear to have run a campaign to discredit and dismiss any information about Hunter Biden’s criminality as “disinformation.”


You’ll recall that 50 former intelligence and national security officials published an open letter just before the 2020 election dismissing Hunter’s laptop as “Russian disinformation.” 


CBS News (not exactly a hotbed of “right-wing conspiracy theories”) reported months ago that various banks flagged 150 financial transactions involving Hunter or James Biden (the president’s brother) as “suspicious.” 


If you have one flagged transaction, federal officials will quickly start demanding answers. But the Biden crime family can have 150 flagged transactions, and federal law enforcement is uninterested.


Grassley is demanding answers from Garland and Wray by August 8th. 


He also warned Garland and Wray that they have “systemic and existential problems within” their agencies, and that the Department of Justice and the FBI may be “institutionally corrupted to their very core” to such a degree that “the American people will have no confidence in the equal application of the law.”


For a member of Congress of Grassley’s stature to level such a charge against the Department of Justice and the FBI should be headline news. 


Kudos to Sen. Grassley for trying to hold their feet to the fire. But I’m not holding my breath waiting for a meaningful response. 


Meanwhile, rumors abound in Washington that the investigation into Hunter Biden is at a “critical juncture.” I suspect that means Hunter is on the verge of being completely exonerated in the next few weeks, even though the evidence of corruption involving America’s enemies is overwhelming.




We Can’t Ignore The Past


As an aside, I agree with many people who say that Donald Trump spends too much time relitigating the election fraud issue rather than laying out his vision for the future, especially at a time when so many Americans are increasingly worried about their own futures.


Trump reportedly intends to outline his vision for the future in a major address this afternoon. You can watch it here.


But this Grassley letter is a reminder that we can’t just drop what happened in 2020. Should Grassley have not sent his letter because it is “looking to the past”? Of course, he was right to demand accountability!


The cover up of Hunter Biden’s criminality and pandering to foreign enemies was a huge factor in determining the outcome of the election. 


It must be exposed. It is the glaring evidence of how our own intelligence and law enforcement agencies have become arms of the current Marxist/socialist progressive movement.




A Key Fact


The January 6th show trial and its media allies are relentlessly building a case that Donald Trump planned an “insurrection” on January 6th. 


This is an extraordinarily serious charge to allege, and it is being done in a setting with none of the traditional constitutional safeguards -- like the ability to cross examine witnesses or the ability to call your own witnesses. All of the usual standards of fairness are being completely ignored by the leftist majority.


Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, a lifelong liberal and Biden voter, blasted the conduct of the January 6th Committee, saying, “It’s the first time this has happened in my lifetime since McCarthyism, and it’s despicable.”


And yet with everything tilted one way, no one on the committee has been able to come up with a satisfactory rebuttal to a key fact stated in the Pentagon inspector general’s report on January 6th. 


In that report, the inspector general noted that at 5:30 pm on January 3rd, President Trump met with acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller and Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley. 


At the end of the meeting, Trump told Miller that it looked like there would be a large number of protesters in Washington, D.C., on January 6th, and he wanted to be certain that sufficient National Guard troops were available to ensure that it remained a safe and peaceful event. Miller responded, “We’ve got a plan, and we’ve got it covered.” 


We can be sure of the accuracy of this exchange because the person who relayed the information about the White House meeting to the Pentagon inspector general was none other than General Mark “Thoroughly Modern” Milley


Now, does that sound like something that a president planning an “insurrection” would do? 




What’s A Recession?


The Biden Administration is spending an awful lot of time lately attempting to redefine the word “recession.” The generally accepted definition is two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth as measured by our gross domestic product (GDP). 


The next GDP report will be released later this week, and the Biden White House doesn’t want headlines that the U.S. is officially in a recession. So, once again, when reality conflicts with the leftist agenda, leftists demand that reality must give away.


Their frantic efforts to redefine “recession” are laughable because this is the same radical group that is trying to redefine what a “woman” is. Redefining “recession” is small potatoes by comparison. 


But it’s a reminder that once you start speaking their lies there’s no end to it. Truth matters.


But don’t worry. Joe Biden insists we’re not going to be in a recession. 


Just like he insisted inflation wouldn’t be a big problem


Just like he insisted that if you take the vaccines you won’t get COVID


Just like he insists the southern border is closed.


Just like he insists the withdrawal from Afghanistan was an “extraordinary success.” 


Just like he insists high gas prices are some sort of “incredible transition.”
