This weekend, Nancy Pelosi announced that she was calling Congress back into session. Hearings will be held. Every DC stone will be overturned. When Ms. Pelosi wants to know something, she gets her way. This time, Pelosi said “that she would call the House back from its annual summer recess for a vote this week on legislation to block changes at the Postal Service that voting advocates warn could disenfranchise Americans casting ballots by mail during the pandemic.”

This is child’s play. Those who are healthy should vote in person or absentee. With virtually every state having some form of early voting, states should be able to figure out how to cast votes without risking people’s health. At-risk individuals should be allowed to cast votes by mail, provided that the ballots are received the Friday before Election Day. Giving people half the month of October to vote early is more than sufficient. People arguing otherwise aren’t serious people. They shouldn’t be taken seriously.

Be that as it may, that isn’t the issue that deserves serious congressional investigations. The escalating Portland riots deserve the most attention. That isn’t getting the attention required to fix the situation. Here’s shocking news that people couldn’t have predicted:;

Violence erupted in Portland late Sunday just blocks from the federal courthouse after the driver of a pickup truck crashed, was reportedly pulled from the vehicle and then brutally beaten by a mob after a confrontation with protesters.

Videos that emerged from the scene were chilling. The man identified as the driver could be seen getting punched, kicked and ordered not to leave in the middle of a city street. The man in the video, at one point, appeared dazed after the initial assault, but suffered the worst blow when he absorbed a roundhouse kick to the side of the head.

Ms. Pelosi isn’t interested in restoring order to Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis or NYC. Apparently, Ms. Pelosi thinks that she can harness the energy of these rioters to hold onto her Speaker’s gavel. That’s foolish thinking. Then there’s this:


Democrats haven’t shown interest in stopping this type of violence. If they’re elected, why should I think that Democrats would fix this situation?

Sgt. Kevin Allen, a police spokesman, said reports indicate that protesters “were chasing the truck before it crashed, and they assaulted the driver after the crash.” He said responding officers “encountered a hostile crowd and a squad from the Rapid Response Team responded to help secure the scene while the investigation was underway.”

One of the videos posted to social media begins with the man on his knees in the city street surrounded by a group of people. The man tries to get up and someone yells, “You’re not leaving, bro,” and he gets pushed back to the ground.

It isn’t that voting isn’t important. It’s that maintaining public safety is the government’s highest priority.

Kevin Clinesmith, a former FBI lawyer, “will plead guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign.”

Clinesmith is being charged in federal court in Washington and is expected to plead guilty to one count of making a false statement, his attorney Justin Shur told 360aproko news. “Kevin deeply regrets having altered the email. It was never his intent to mislead the court or his colleagues as he believed the information he relayed was accurate. But Kevin understands what he did was wrong and accepts responsibility,” Shur later said in a statement.

That’s lawyerspeak for saying ‘My client is guilty as sin’ without admitting he’s guilty as sin. Sean Davis of the Federalist wrote this article on the expected Clinesmith guilty plea. In that article, Davis wrote this:

Horowitz and his team wrote in a 434-page report that Clinesmith, identified in the report as “OGC Attorney”, altered an email from a separate U.S. federal agency, believed to be the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), to falsely state that Page had never worked with the CIA to investigate suspected Russia agents operating within the U.S. In fact, as Clinesmith was told by the operative, Page had worked with the CIA previously, as well as with the FBI.

It’s difficult to picture a more corrupt action. This is a severe violation of Carter Page’s civil rights, starting with the Fourth Amendment. The text of the Fourth Amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

It’s difficult to picture how a search could be determined to be reasonable if it’s based on a lie. Further, how could misrepresenting the facts satisfy the legal standard of probable cause? Clinesmith allegedly changed the email used in the FISA warrant application from saying that that Carter Page was a CIA asset to saying Page had never been a CIA asset. Further, the Fourth Amendment requires that someone affirm the accuracy of the application.

This is the first investigation into the Russia Collusion hoax that’s actually presented evidence of a crime. Adam Schiff’s faux impeachment investigation presented hearsay testimony but it didn’t present evidence that a crime had been committed. Schiff played fast and loose with the rules of evidence. Durham is a legitimate investigator who found the original email, then found the doctored email.

This is just the first shoe to drop. Clinesmith didn’t have the authority to sign off on the warrant application. He was just one piece of this puzzle.

Lindsey Graham spoke out yesterday, saying that Robert Mueller should testify in front of his Committee if he’s going to write Washington Post op-eds. The article states “Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said Sunday that he will grant Democrats’ request to have former special counsel Robert Mueller testify about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election before the committee.”

I can imagine Mueller not wanting to testify. The reasons’ names are Graham, Grassley, Lee, Cruz, Hawley and Kennedy. Mueller wouldn’t b worried about answering questions about his op-ed. He’d be plenty worried about answering questions about the Special Counsel investigation he conducted into Gen. Flynn. He’d be on the hot seat answering why the Special Counsel investigation was needed. He’d feel the heat answering why the FBI’s DC Field Office recommended shutting the Flynn investigation down when they didn’t find any “derogatory information” against Flynn. Imagine how Mueller would squirm when presented with Jim Comey’s note that said that the Flynn-Kislyak calls were “totally legit.”

Mueller certainly would’ve gotten that information at the start of the Special Counsel’s investigation. Despite the fact that the investigation lacked proper predication, Mueller bankrupted Flynn based on charges that weren’t sustainable. Besides partisanship, why would Mueller continue investigating when he knew that a) the Steele Dossier was unsubstantiated, b) the FBI’s DC Field Office recommended dismissing the investigation into Gen. Flynn and c) Jim Comey had said that the Flynn-Kislyak phone calls were legitimate?

If Mueller thinks they’ll just talk about Roger Stone, he’s kidding himself. In the op-ed, he wrote this:

“We made every decision in Stone’s case, as in all our cases, based solely on the facts and the law and in accordance with the rule of law. The women and men who conducted these investigations and prosecutions acted with the highest integrity. Claims to the contrary are false.”

Let’s see whether he’d repeat that testimony. Did Mueller’s investigators act “with the highest integrity” when they prosecuted Gen. Flynn after the FBI’s DC field office recommended Operation Crossfire Razor be terminated? Did Mueller’s investigators act “with the highest integrity” when they tipped off CNN before they executed a pre-dawn raid of Roger Stone?

Let’s hear Mueller’s testimony to those questions. If he thinks that’s acting “with the highest integrity”, then people will think, rightly, that Mueller’s part of the swamp just like Jim Comey is.

It isn’t surprising that the Intelligence Community, aka the IC, is already attacking newly confirmed DNI John Ratcliffe. Equally unsurprising is the fact that the MSM is attacking Ratcliffe. They know that Ratcliffe wants to drain the IC swamp, that he wants to get rid of people who think of Peter Strzok, Jim Comey and Jim Clapper as heroes.

CNN started its attack by saying “Ratcliffe will transition from being one of the President’s key defenders to leading an intelligence community that has been under constant fire from Trump, who has pushed unsubstantiated claims about a ‘deep state’ of career officials trying to undermine his presidency.” CNN pretends that the transcripts from the HPSCI, aka House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, interviews haven’t come out. Those 63,000 pages of transcripts show that Jim Clapper said on TV that President Trump might be a Russian asset but then changed his story, saying under oath that he hadn’t “seen any direct evidence” of collusion or conspiracy between Trump and the Russians.

Peter Strzok kept open Operation Crossfire Razor on Gen. Flynn even though the DC Field Office wanted it closed because, in the field office’s opinion, Gen. Flynn had told the truth. Strzok said that the “7th floor”, aka FBI Director Jim Comey, wanted the investigation kept open. Does that sound like the FBI political appointees were people of integrity? It doesn’t sound like that to me.

Susan Rice and Samantha Power also requested the unmasking of Gen. Flynn’s name, too. What CNN calls unsubstantiated is actually substantiated. It’s just that CNN is filled with liars who shill for Democrats. Eli Lake wouldn’t fit with CNN. Lake isn’t a lying progressive like the meatheads at CNN. He wrote something entirely different in this article:

Flynn did not then know that leaders of the FBI and the Justice Department were out for his head. They suspected he was a Russian agent—despite the fact that a counterintelligence investigation into Flynn launched five months earlier by the FBI had found no evidence for such a claim. Three weeks into the Trump administration, the Flynn hunt bagged its trophy. The newly installed national-security adviser was compelled to quit. The stated rationale was that Flynn had lost the confidence of the new vice president because he had supposedly misled Mike Pence about some phone calls between Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the United States. That those phone calls became public knowledge was almost certainly the result of Obama-administration leaks of highly sensitive intelligence information.

Lake isn’t a conservative by any stretch of the imagination. He just isn’t a CNN-style commentator because he, unlike many of their commentators, isn’t a liar. Instead, he’s just a reporter that takes his responsibilities seriously. Then there’s this from CNN:

Ratcliffe has been unequivocal that he believes Russia has interfered in US elections and will continue to do so — but he has not sided with one of the intelligence community’s key findings: that Russia was trying to help Trump in 2016.

There’s a reason for Ratcliffe’s hesitation in siding with the IC’s finding. While there is documentation from the IC thought that Russia was trying to help then-Candidate Trump in 2016, it’s also true that Jim Clapper didn’t turnover the documents that showed Russia preferred Hillary. That documentation said Russia knew her and thought that she was “malleable.” When intelligence says contradicting things, it’s best that the IC not take a conclusive position. This is telling, too:

“I haven’t served in an intelligence agency. I think that bringing a different kind of experience today is really going to be vitally important,” Ratcliffe told Catherine Herridge of CBS News after he was nominated in March.

“You know all of the experience in the world isn’t helpful without judgment, and I think what we’ve seen is that some of our most experienced intelligence officials have gotten it wrong with respect to important issues,” Ratcliffe said.

It’s better to pick someone talented and honest than picking someone experienced and dishonest.

Anyone explaining how the unmasking of Gen. Flynn was routine isn’t trustworthy. To believe that the Flynn unmasking was innocent, I’d have to believe that the same people who spent $40,000,000 investigating the fake Trump-Russia collusion, appropriated 40 FBI agents and hired 19 corrupt attorneys just wanted better understanding of who was talking to the then-Russian ambassador to the US. That’s spin. This was a vendetta led by Jim Clapper, Jim Comey, Robert Mueller, Peter Strzok, Andrew Weissman et al.

The cabal that didn’t hesitate in using the Steele Dossier to obtain a FISA warrant against Carter Page suddenly developed integrity? (Let’s remember that they didn’t get their warrant the first time when they filed their application without the discredited dossier.) I don’t think so. The definition of a cabal is “a small group of secret plotters, as against a government or person in authority.” That definition fits Clapper, Comey, Mueller, Strzok and Weissman perfectly.

Again, to the Weissman/Strzok/Clapper/Comey cabal, this was a vendetta. They hated President-Elect Trump. Strzok told Lisa Page that he went to Walmart once and that he could smell the Trump supporters. Suddenly, this cabal of Trump haters are doing things purely out of civic pride? Shame on them for thinking that we’re that stupid.

We know the stories. Jim Clapper insisted in public that President Trump was a Russian asset but testified under oath that he “never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting [or] conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election.” Susan Rice testified to this:

Susan Rice, who served as Obama’s national security adviser, testified in September 2017 that she hadn’t seen evidence of Trump-Russia collusion during questioning by former Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina.

Rice certainly didn’t tell viewers that when being interviewed on TV. Why should we think that she’s a person of integrity? Peter Strzok found out that field officers wanted to shut down Crossfire Razor, the investigation into Gen. Flynn. Immediately, he ordered that Crossfire Razor not be stopped. A day later, there was a meeting in the Oval office about unmasking. Three weeks later, FBI agents entrapped Gen. Flynn.

Why shouldn’t people think that these different groups weren’t working together? They definitely had common purposes. They definitely weren’t people of integrity. They all hated the thought of a Trump administration. This interview is worth watching:

The FBI agent who foolishly asked on paper what the goal was is Bill Priestap. Here’s Priestap’s ‘contribution’ to the unmasking fiasco:

Priestap’s memo reflected his own thoughts on the FBI’S internal debate about interviewing Flynn. “What’s our goal? Truth/admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” Priestap wrote, adding: “Protect our institution by not playing games.” His notes also show the FBI “softened its interview strategy” with Flynn, giving him hints to refresh his memory of his conversations, the Times reports. Nevertheless, Flynn “lied repeatedly, and prosecutors have said that agents gave him ‘multiple opportunities to correct his false statements by revisiting key questions.'”

This isn’t going away anytime soon. That’s why it’s important to realize that the Democrats’ spin will intensify. The simple fix for the Democrats’ spin is to ask this simple question: Is it likely that the cabal that wanted to prevent a Trump administration, the cabal that impeached President Trump and tried to remove him from office, suddenly become public servants with integrity? Of course, they didn’t.

Will Thursday turn into Adam Schiff’s day of reckoning? That’s definitely a possibility according to Byron York’s Daily Memo:

A big development in the fight over 53 secret interviews the House Intelligence Committee conducted during its Trump-Russia investigation. Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has sent a letter to chairman Adam Schiff notifying him that transcripts of all 53 interviews, over 6,000 pages in all, have been cleared for public release. “All of the transcripts, with our required redactions, can be released to the public without any concerns of disclosing classified material,” Grenell wrote to Schiff in a letter dated May 4.

Grenell then provided a list of which transcripts had been cleared:

Then York noted this:

The interviews were conducted in secret. But by September 2018, with the committee’s report long finished and made public, the Republicans who still controlled the committee decided the interview transcripts should be released to the public. In a rare moment of comity, Democrats agreed, and on September 26, 2018, the committee voted unanimously to release the transcripts. But there was a catch: The documents would have to first be checked for classified information by the Intelligence Community. So off they went to the IC — never to be seen again.

Now, in May 2020, they’re still secret. Two weeks ago, the Wall Street Journal editorial board reported that the IC had finished its review of 43 of the transcripts, but Schiff was refusing to release them. The paper said Schiff was also preventing declassification of the remaining ten transcripts.

Then Grennell threw in one other thing:

In the letter, Grenell revealed that the 43 transcripts have been finished since June 2019. Schiff has been sitting on them all that time. Grenell said the final ten have just been finished as well. “I urge you to honor your previous public statements, and your committee’s unanimous vote on this matter, to release all 53 cleared transcripts to Members of Congress and the American public as soon as possible,” Grenell said. Just in case Schiff is still not interested, Grenell added, “I am also willing to release the transcripts directly from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, as to ensure we comply with the unanimous and bipartisan vote to release the transcripts.”

That’s a rather large thing. This puts Mr. Schiff in a difficult position. As York highlights, some in the GOP think that “Schiff was making it up all along.” This is rich:

A House Intelligence Committee spokesman told Fox News Wednesday that the panel received Grenell’s letter on Tuesday. “After more than a year of unnecessary delay, the ODNI has finally concluded its protracted classification review of the Committee’s transcripts, and it also appears the White House has now abandoned its improper insistence on reviewing key transcripts, which the Committee appropriately rejected,” the spokesman said.

House Intel Republicans slapped back:

“We understand now that Chairman Schiff is blocking the release of these transcripts,” they wrote. “This news, if accurate, is disturbing, especially in light of Chairman Schiff’s cries in 2019 for transparency regarding allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.” “For nearly four years, prominent Democrat politicians and commentators alleged that President Trump colluded with Russia, with Chairman Schiff going so far as to say that he had ‘direct evidence’ of collusion,” they continued. “Now that these allegations have been disproven by several investigations, the American people deserve to have transparency about why public figures such as Chairman Schiff continue to promote such wild accusations.”

Adam Schiff is a liar and a leaker. He should be expelled from Congress and have his security clearance revoked. He told NBC’s Chuck Todd that he had proof that President Trump colluded with Russians way back in 2017:

Schiff is the most corrupt chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He’s also the most partisan chairman of the Committee.

Most people outside the DC Beltway know who Brandon Van Grack is. Before this morning, I didn’t know who he was. That’s certainly changing rapidly. After reading this article, I suspect that’s going to change.

First, Van Grack was part of Robert Mueller’s team of partisan attorneys. Next, it’s important to know that since “February 2018, Van Grack has been obligated to comply with D.C. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan’s standing order in the Flynn case to produce all evidence in the government’s possession ‘that is favorable to defendant and material either to defendant’s guilt or punishment.'”

Third and most importantly, Van Grack might have some explaining to do:

In an October 2019 filing, Van Grack denied governmental misconduct and assured the court that the government “has complied, and will continue to comply, with its discovery and disclosure obligations, including those imposed pursuant to Brady and the Court’s Standing Order.”

That might be difficult to prove in light of this information:

What Van Grack didn’t inform the court about, and didn’t provide to Flynn, was the newly unsealed January 4, 2017 “Closing Communication” from the FBI Washington Field Office, which recommended the FBI close its investigation of Flynn, as its exhaustive search through government databases “did not yield any information on which to predicate further investigative efforts.”

It’s difficult to picture anything more exculpatory than an FBI document that says an “exhaustive search” through the FBI’s databases “did not yield any information on which to predicate further investigative efforts.” Nothing says ‘he isn’t guilty’ than a document that says there’s no predication for “further investigative efforts.” That’s like a bright flashing neon light saying ‘He isn’t guilty. Stop wasting our time.”

Remember that Operation Crossfire Razor, the surveillance operation into Gen. Flynn, remained open only because Peter Strzok overruled field officers who wanted to shut down Operation Razor. Then there’s this:

He argued to Sullivan that Flynn’s “conduct and communications with Russia went to the heart of that inquiry.” And Van Grack said that Flynn’s alleged “false statements to the FBI on January 24, 2017, were absolutely material.”

But by that time, the FBI had already cleared Flynn of any improper ties or coordination with Russia. Shedding light on internal FBI deliberations, notes from the then-assistant director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division Bill Priestap, written before the Flynn interview and after discussions with then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Fox News is told, show discussions of whether their “goal” was “to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.”

Devin Nunes has taken hit after hit from partisan hacks like Adam Schiff for years. Schiff even published a memo that said virtually everything in the Nunes Memo was wrong. The Horowitz utterly discredited Schiff’s memo.

Now the question is whether the Senate will interrogate Brandon Van Grack. If they believe in justice and equal justice under the law. Unfortunately, that’s still debatable at this point.

If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a million times. Yeah, that politician is crooked but they’re all crooks. That’s disheartening. What’s worst is that it’s a defeatist attitude. I’m planting a stake in the ground and saying ‘No more!’ If our president is willing to fight against the Swamp, and he’s definitely willing, then it’s time for people of integrity from all political persuasions to join him in saying No More!

There’s nothing more Swamp-like than the upper echelon (singular, not plural) of the FBI. Republicans Jim Jordan and Michael Johnson have put FBI Director Christopher Wray on notice that they intend to interview “a mysterious FBI agent, Joe Pientka” in connection with the perjury trap crafted against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Expect Democrats to attack Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson for impugning the reputation of the FBI. Spare me the dramatics.

Democrats, starting with Adam Schiff, (D-Calif.), have launched one defense of the FBI after another. The infamous Schiff Memo was demolished by the Horowitz Report. The Schiff Memo said that “FBI and DOJ officials did not ‘abuse’ the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign.”

The Horowitz Report determined the exact opposite. In fact, the Horowitz Report went further than that:

The Justice Department inspector general’s report contradicted Schiff’s defense. It listed 17 significant omissions and errors that the FBI made in the Carter Page surveillance warrants, including derogatory information about Steele and at least one of his sources.

Then there’s this:

The key claim in the Nunes memo, that the Steele dossier “formed an essential part of the Carter Page FISA application”, is backed up by the inspector general’s report. The inspector general also faulted the FBI for failing to tell the surveillance court that Steele told a Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, that he was “desperate” in September 2016 to see Donald Trump lose the election.

Don’t expect Mssrs. Jordan and Johnson to relent. Here’s why:

Pientka was conspicuously removed from the FBI’s website after Fox News contacted the FBI about his extensive role in Crossfire Hurricane Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) matters, a change first noticed by Twitter user Techno Fog, but sources say Pientka remains in a senior role at the agency’s San Francisco field office.

This is what the Democrats’ pushback will look like:

The Horowitz Report utterly demolished the Schiff Memo. I’ve listed some of the specifics. The fact is that Pientka, Wray, Comey, McCabe and Strzok all need to testify. Further, it’s worth noting that field agents wanted to close Crossfire Razor, the name for the operation against Gen. Flynn. Strzok ordered it to stay open.

Here’s a question that hasn’t been posed to Strzok, Comey or Wray: why would field officers who interviewed Gen. Flynn want to shut the operation down but a suit from the 7th Floor overrule the field officers? The Swamp must be drained. The Swamp’s defenders must be defeated ASAP. Keeping gavels in Pelosi’s and Schiff’s hands is protecting the Comey/Strzok/Wray of the FBI Building. That isn’t acceptable.

This afternoon, Tyler Kistner won the endorsement of Second District Republicans in Minnesota’s Second District. Tyler Kistner said:

I am truly honored to have earned the endorsement of the delegates and the Republican Party in the Second District. I’d like to thank Regina Barr and Erika Cashin for running a spirited campaign.

Now, our party must unite together to beat Angie Craig in November. These are not ordinary times, and the stakes have never been higher. Our country is facing an unprecedented enemy in the form of this pandemic and a record number of families and small businesses are hurting. I will fight for the people of Minnesota and work with President Trump to get our country and our economy back on track. I will stand up to the deceptive practices of China. I will be a steadfast leader in the fight to rein in our debt and deficit and get our fiscal house in order.

Angie Craig has already broken her promises to the Second District by taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from special interest groups in Washington DC. She has become nothing more than a puppet to Nancy Pelosi, Ilhan Omar, and the progressives that run her party.

I served Minnesota and our country as a Marine, now, I ask for the honor of going to Washington to serve you again.

Minnesota’s Second District is one of the races targeted by the NRCC. We can’t afford to let ‘Let them eat expensive ice cream’ Nancy Pelosi serve another term as Speaker. We can’t afford to have Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff lead one faux impeachment investigation after another while totally ignoring the infiltration of the Wuhan coronavirus with nary a bit of interest from Schiff, Pelosi or Nadler.

Pelosi negotiated while literally letting small businesses die while tens of millions of people filed for unemployment. Schiff impeached a president based solely on allegations. I don’t want any citizen tried solely based on allegations. While Pelosi negotiated and literally tens of millions of people lost their jobs, Angie Craig didn’t speak out. When Schiff impeached President Trump based solely on hearsay testimony, Angie Craig voted to impeach President Trump.

It’s clear that Craig’s talk about small businesses is just talk. It’s clear that Craig’s talk about civil rights is selective at best. It’s time to throw her out this November.

Nancy Pelosi thinks that sidelining the World Health Organization isn’t wise. In fact, she thinks that it’s dangerous:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is criticizing President Trump’s effort to withhold funding from the World Health Organization and other steps his administration is reportedly taking to sideline the global health agency. “It’s stupid — it’s more than stupid; it’s dangerous,” Pelosi told NPR.

What’s stupid is paying hundreds of millions of dollars to a Chinese puppet. Then again, that’s normal for Democrats. Then Pelosi went off the deep end:

“Worse than [the funding], if you can believe it, worse than that is that he and the secretary of state have been deleting any reference to the World Health Organization in any of our strategies on how we can deal with the pandemic. That may be more harmful than just the money,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi apparently thinks that we should get pushed around by corrupt international actors acting on behalf of evil nations intent on replacing the United States as the world’s superpower. That’s who the W.H. O. is. Tom Cotton has been right about China since January, when Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler were trying to impeach President Trump. Here’s what Sen. Cotton told Maria Bartiromo:

As early as the second week of December, it was clear that this virus was spreading from person to person. By late December, it was spreading to doctors in Wuhan hospitals. Some doctors were trying to blow the whistle on these facts, and the secret police arrived at their doorsteps in the middle of the night. So only after China fessed up to the WHO on December 31 did the world know what was happening. Yet, still they continued to deny that it was spreading from person to person into mid-January. That allowed millions of people to leave Wuhan.

And then, finally, China continued to pressure the WHO and other countries not to stop international travel from China. That meant that hundreds of thousands of persons left China after this virus was spread far outside of Wuhan, which allowed the virus to escape China’s borders and get to the United States and get to Europe and get to essentially every country in the world.

Why hasn’t Pelosi instructed the Oversight Committee to investigate W.H.O.? Is it that Democrats know how corrupt WHO is? Is it because Democrats are comfortable with the plethora of corrupt international organizations that they fund?

Democrats have spent millions of dollars investigating President Trump but they won’t lift a finger to investigate what the linkage is between the W.H.O. and China? Democrats will investigate a US president that they disagree with but they won’t investigate a nation that wants to run the US into the dirt? That’s the definition of evil. That’s the definition of anti-patriotism.

Jake Tapper got under Pelosi’s skin in this interview:

Pelosi isn’t this great negotiator with nerves of steel. She’s aging and, based on this video, she isn’t aging that gracefully. The day that she signed the impeachment papers is the day that things started going downhill. Then there was this trip to Chinatown on February 24 where ‘Dr. Pelosi’, the world-famous epidemiologist, told everyone that travel is safe:

Let’s be clear about something. If President Trump cured cancer, Pelosi would criticize him for putting oncologists out of business. If President Trump fixed the unions’ pension funds and started running surpluses for the next decade, Pelosi would criticize President Trump for not doing it fast enough.

The truth is that she’s just a high profile political hack. Finally, she’s as tone-deaf as Hillary.

President Trump should fix the WHO, if that’s possible. If it isn’t possible, then we should just undermine what’s left of its credibility.
