Harry Winston designed, of course!
Aside from Adam Kinzinger and a certain sassy congress gal from Wyoming, few have been as critical of the “Stop the Steal” urban myth as the Head Groundskeeper here at the Werkes. (We have too many friends as it is.)
In the interest of fairness (to which we pay lip service) and the historical record (which is more transient than an Etch-a-Sketch) we should note that the Democrat(ic) party spent four years trying to delegitimize Donald Trump’s presidency. Two impeachments didn’t take. The second impeachment manager, U.S. Rep.Jamie Raskin, was among the seven Dems voting to deny the 2016 electoral college results.
So don’t get all Sunday morning preachy on respecting election results, my progressive …. acquaintances (for they are our acquaintances).
From out of the past comes John “Bull” Durham, federal prosecutor. Mention of his name is like hearing that Andy Williams is still performing at Branson MO. After two years of sifting the outdoor sandbox, Bull Durham has surfaced with an actual, honest-to-Gawd criminal indictment! No, not of Hillary. No, not Comey, Brennan, or Clapper. Not Tinker to Evers to Chance. It’s someone no one has ever heard of!
But it is — sez here — the camel’s nose under the tent (to coin a phrase). Doing the perp walk is a guy named Sussman. (WHO?) Michael Sussman. (Oh!) Charged this week, only because the clock was ticking on that statue of limitations thing. (Which the Black Student Union has not demanded be removed. So far. What? It’s “statute”? Never mind.)
The plot, it thickens
This Sussman character was working for a law firm (Perkins Coie, who did the Al Gore election challenge) mouthpiece for the notorious Clinton Syndicate (one of the five families of New York). Was passing dirty doss-ee-yaze about Trump peeing on Vladimir Putin at a bathhouse in Minsk.
We’re boiling this cabbage down for the upcoming Mystery Science Theater episode but you get the idea. Sussman lied about his affiliation to the FBI which, being a former federal prosecutor himself, he should know not to do but may have thought why should he be the only guy in Washington telling the truth. And you wonder why Republicans are cynical; 63% of Repulicans think Joe Biden’s victory was fraudulent, according to this poll taken in June. Even the New York Times is forced to report:
Supporters of Mr. Trump have long been suspicious of Perkins Coie. On behalf of Democrats, [one of their lawers] commissioned a research firm, Fusion GPS, to look into Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia. That resulted in the so-called Steele dossier, a notorious compendium of rumors about Trump-Russia ties. The FBI cited some information from the dossier in botched wiretap applications.
Some of the questions that Mr. Durham’s team has been asking in recent months … suggest he has been pursuing a theory that the Clinton campaign used Perkins Coie to submit dubious information to the FBI about Russia and Mr. Trump in an effort to gin up investigative activity to hurt his 2016 campaign.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: In plain language, the Clinton campaign weaponized the federal surveillance system in an attempt to throw the 2016 election. Where have you heard that before?! (Here, dammit!) A fact hidden by Robert Mueller’s team of cover-up artists. (Mueller makes Uncle Joe Biden look electric wired!)
We’ve got the T-shirt back from Klinke’s Cleaners: Hillary for Prison, now!
Just a personal word from a daily reader to you (no need to post).
Would you please turn off the flashing AOC-Effect/Nation moving photo on your page? It makes it difficult to focus on your content with something constantly flashing in one’s frame of reading. Your content and writing style is quite enjoyable, that flashing thing is not. Static would be fine. I have been hoping for some time it would go away on its own, but alas …

I certainly hope nothing untoward happens to Senator Clinton over her circuitous lying and general blundering into the Steele dossier.
She and her cronies claimed and continue to claim that The Rushans stole it in 2016. As recently as 3 months ago Hillary publicly asserted the 2016 election was rigged.
There was the violent riot in D.C. in January 2017 trying to interfere with our constitutional transfer of power.
Third, there was a massive attempt to disrupt the constitutionally legitimate confirmation process for a U.S. Supreme Court Justice which includes storming and occupying Congressional offices in the Capitol complex, after Sen. Warren whipped a crowd into a frenzy.
Then crowds stormed the U.S. Supreme Court itself.
Some might call all this type of stuff treasonous insurrection.
I’m curious if anyone involved in any of the above (claiming election fraud, violently disrupting a presidential Inauguration, Senate confirmation of a judge, swearing in of a Justice of the Supreme Court) was branded a terrorist and tossed into a federal prison cell.
How many tears of anguish and howls of trauma and piercing cries of “worse than 9/11 and Pearl Harbor combined” over any of the above?

Yes, forgot about the D.C. riot during Trump’s inauguration.
Yes, and our current vice president — then-Senator — paid an in-person visit to the Floyd protesters who rioted at the gates of the White House and nearly breached it after battling Secret Service over several days.
She also promoted raising bail funds for the rioters in Minneapolis.
Again, where was the wailing and rending of garments over that?
I think it’s good that you saw what was happening then and now keep it close as a subject of critically important interest. Follow it all back a few years and one might be inclined to think the nation has been gripped in the underpinnings of a political coup ever since Benghazi.
From the internet. Has a nice ring to it.
It is time. The upside down flag represents a country in distress. All that America once stood for is being eroded, methodically, and deliberately.
New lines will be drawn soon, not on foreign land but on our own soil. Be ready.
You may not have to fight just yet, but you CANNOT remain silent. It is time to stand up and be heard.
If you are a police officer, you will have to choose sides soon. It is not political fight anymore, it is basic right or wrong. No longer will “just following orders” be an excuse just as it wasn’t during the Nazi SS trials. You will have to choose between loyalty to a chain of command that abandoned you and throws you under the bus at every political turn, or to your teammates, family, and COUNTRY.
Loyalty is a two way street. Does who you defend have your back as well?
It is time. Time to stand up, time to speak out, time to be heard. The silent majority can no longer be silenced or it will be silenced forever.
Ask yourself, if not now when, if not me, who?
What are you willing to stand for?
Stop expecting others to fight your battles. The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is the silence of good men.

What a bunch of tired old cliches you just posted, Batperson.
Tinny Voice doesn’t like old music either.
John Adams, 1798: We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion….Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.
Darn, meant to post this under Dave’s latest blog entry; “Have you been vaccinated?”
