It isn’t just things like Smollett (a pathetic, small figure) getting off – it is much larger than that: (HT: Ace of Spades)
A former Senate aide charged with doxxing Republican senators and extorting a witness reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors in Washington after his wealthy and well-connected family brought in experts to talk about his mental health and the private supervision they could provide him.
A judge signaled that Jackson Cosko had allegedly taken large quantities of sensitive information from the Senate, but banned media from hearing the details. A hearing had been scheduled for Thursday, but on Tuesday, the court canceled it and indicated that a deal had been struck behind the scenes. A plea agreement hearing, where the deal is to be officially signed, was set for April 5.
During Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s September 2018 confirmation hearing, Cosko — a former IT aide who once managed Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan’s office computer accounts — allegedly posted to Wikipedia the home addresses of Republican senators who supported the Supreme Court justice.
Don’t try this at home, folks: you aren’t part of a wealthy and well-connected family and if you tried this, you’d be looking at many years in jail. It is only the Ruling Class which can get away with this – especially the liberal Democrat part of it (Republicans can’t skate quite as brazenly). And do realize this is Trump’s Justice Department which is allowing this vile person to get off with less than a wrist-slap. Which means that plenty of people at Justice don’t give a damn about Trump – they’re going to protect their buddies in the Ruling Class, come what may.
People will put up with a lot – as the Founders noted, people are disposed to suffer ills as long as they can. But what people find unendurable is a clear manifestation of injustice. If the regular folks feel that everyone is in the same boat, then a lot of things are allowed to slide. But if they start to perceive that some are in an entirely different boat and the rules don’t apply to them, then we get into a situation where the problem has to be rapidly corrected, or people will simply go outside the law to obtain justice…and that path leads to revolution.
I don’t think these idiots – and they are, truly, idiots – realize where this leads. Mommny and Daddy – clearly stupid people who don’t know anything about raising kids – are trying to protect their precious Jackson from the consequences of his evil deeds. But when regular folks see more and more cases where the connected get off, then what will happen to Mommy and Daddy’s precious, little child is that he’ll be strung up from a lamp post…right next to Mommy and Daddy. If they had the sense that God gave little, white mice they’d have let their kid go to jail for a while, because he deserved it. But that isn’t how corrupt and stupid Ruling Classes operate.
I hope Trump gets on this – and if I were him, I’d insist that no plea deal be entered without his sign off. Clearly, the Deep State is going on as if Trump means nothing: that he’ll be gone one day and it’ll all be back to normal. But Trump has a chance to nip this and establish justice and thus ensure domestic tranquility. If the opportunity is missed, then eventually people are going to get killed over things like this.
One way to bring about justice is through lawsuits, something the left is very good at doing in a detrimental way.
Show me the man and I will show you the crime. Carrying on Stalin’s tradition, Mad Max is still investigating:
House Rep. Maxine Waters (above), the Democrat from California, said that the Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank (inset) is cooperating with the House Financial Services Committee, which she chairs. Waters is seeking documents from Deutsche Bank related to the millions of dollars in loans that it has extended to President Trump (right) and his businesses over the course of several decades. Deutsche Bank has drawn scrutiny because it was one of the few lenders willing to do business with Trump when others refused to do so.
There is something very unAmerican about this.
Those of us who identify as middle class, living out in fly-over country are constantly accused of being immoral, racist, homophobic, misogynistic, sexist, xenophobic haters. The vast majority of us are just going about living our lives, making an honest living, raising families, minding our own business and trying to limit government intrusion into our lives as much as possible. We may, as those on this blog do, express our opinions in an emphatic way, but very few on the Right are actively trying to harm or limit the rights of those who are different or with whom we disagree. That behavior is almost exclusively limited to the Left. There was an email going around a while back that said:
The fact that we are NOT out there in roving gangs of A-Teams eliminating those who cheat justice, game the system and actively try to destroy the greatest experiment in self government the world has ever seen says more about the moral character of Conservatives than any charge the Left could level at us.
But you’re right — they Left will eventually push us too far. And when they do, it’s Katie bar the door.
There is a reaction in Colorado to the state legislature’s efforts to shove radical Leftist policies down our throats, and I don’t think the Left has a clue as to the scope or intensity of this backlash.
It’s big. Right now petitions are circulating and people are calling radio shows to find out where they can go to sign them to reject the legislature’s efforts and put these policies up for vote by the people. One of them was on the ballot and was soundly defeated in the same election that moved the statehouse into Dem territory, so they know the public said no to it. This would essentially shut down the entire petroleum industry in Colorado, costing the state literally billions in tax revenue, creating an instant recession as unemployment surges and housing values plummet and businesses go under—not counting the property taxes that fund the schools even in areas where there is no drilling.
But in a couple of months, as we near the six month waiting period for recalls, there will be a flood of recall petitions and I am sure they will all meet the criteria for demanding new elections. These Dems are going to be slammed with so much concentrated, focused opposition they won’t know what hit them.
Not one of these people ran on the policies they are now voting in, sometimes in late-night sessions. They all worked together, obviously, on the same Bait and Switch tactic, and people are outraged. The Left is so used to conservatives not liking something, like the Obama election, but quietly putting up with it, they have no idea what will happen when they push too far. So far since the end of January they have tried to shut down the whole petroleum industry, voted to implement radical sex ed teaching kids as young as 9 about transgenderism and how to have safe homosexual sex and that abortion is just another way to deal with pregnancy with nothing at all wrong or controversial about it, they have voted on a bill to allow law enforcement to take away guns from people who have been anonymously reported as dangerous to themselves or others with no notice or due process, they have voted to have Colorado join in a lawsuit against Trump and the emergency order and they have voted to have Colorado join the National Popular Vote compact which essentially strips Coloradans of a voice in presidential elections. This week they are going after water necessary for agriculture.
It’s going to be interesting and I hope a template for what can happen nationally.
I am just going to leave this here as an example of the complete disdain the “American establishment elite” have for commoners encroaching upon their right to rule over us:
‘Putin endorsed him, for heaven’s sake!’ Barbara Bush blamed TRUMP for her heart attack and kept a clock on her bedside table counting down the seconds until he would leave office
Barbara only needs to look at the three terms served by her “Republican” husband and son as the reason why Trump is now President. Had nothing to do with Putin honey.
I lost all respect for most of the Bushes in this last election cycle—41, Barbara and Laura. I don’t think W voted for Hillary, though his parents did and I think Laura did, too. By the time the primaries were over I had had more than enough of JEB! as well.
I’m liking this bleach in the old GOP gene pool.

LOL. No kidding, I am loving it.
People are dying
Well this can’t be good.
President Trump said Wednesday that ‘Russia needs to get out’ of Venezuela as the U.S. accused the Kremlin of adding to unrest in the Latin American county.
Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell and MSNBC keep telling me that Trump is an agent of Russia. So does Trump answer to Putin? Or does Putin answer to Trump?
There is an interesting spectrum of the Trump/Russia tinfoil hat theory.
From mildest to certifiable:
A. Trump wanted to win and asked some Russians if they had any dirt on Hillary he could use against her
B. Trump wanted to win so he asked THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT (and/or just a Russian agent) if they had any dirt on Hillary he could use against her.
C. Trump asked the Russian government to work with him to defeat Hillary
D. Trump owes the Russians something and in return they helped him defeat Hillary
E. Trump and the Russians conspired to change the vote tallies in key districts
F. Trump is a RUSSIAN AGENT !!!!
A and/or B form the basis of the “collusion” theory that has so many panties in such tight wads they have cut off circulation. However, even if he HAD done either or both of these things neither is a crime.
C and D are merely examples of the Leftist brain that has to find or invent the ugliest scenario possible.
E is completely crazy, as there has been absolutely no evidence of vote tampering or even accusation of vote tampering. It springs from the toxic mix of the word “meddling” and the feeble minds and thought processes of TDS lunatics.
F is my favorite, a new one touted by some truly certifiable crazies and is based on nothing, linked to nothing, and just appeared out of the blue. It’s just like a massive brain fart on the Left, the gaseous result of ingesting too much crap.
I’d guess that A is possible or even likely, B not very likely, and the rest just variations of insanity fueled by hatred.
Now we can see just where the Left has set the bar, regarding what it takes to claim that Trump is a Russian agent: There is no evidence that he is not.
Specifically, Smalwell was asked by host Chris Matthews, “Do you believe right now the president has been an agent of the Russians?” To which Smalwell replied, “Yes, I think there’s more evidence that he is…”
“Agent?” Matthews interjected.
“Yes, I think all the arrows point in that direction. I haven’t seen a single piece of evidence that he’s not,” Smalwell said.
Based on that type and level of analysis, we can safely say Smalwell is:
Part ant, part human (mostly ant)
An agent of Iran
An agent of China
The result of experiments on how to lower IQSorry, we have evidence of that An escapee from an insane asylumSorry, we have evidence of that
Any chance we get Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s opinion on the following:
Brunei could start whipping or stoning gay people to death next week when strict new laws are introduced, human rights groups have warned.
The tiny oil-rich nation already implements Sharia laws, with homosexuality punishable with up to ten years in prison.
I would like to ask her specifically why her God wants to kill homosexuals.
No doubt it is the same reason her god wants her to kill all Jews.
