Never have so many been this wrong this often as this year. This was a difficult year for Democrats, especially the institutions that support them. Let’s start with the most obvious perpetrators. The Agenda Media, aka the MSM, had the worst year in their history. If they had played a drinking game with their most-used words, they would’ve been sloppy drunk from Mid-February onward. Pundits like Carl Bernstein, John Brennan, Don Lemon, Joe Scarborough, Rachel Maddow, Mika Brzezinski, Chris Matthews, Eugene Robinson, Juan Williams and others still wouldn’t be sober.

Similarly, if people got paid $50 each time a pundit used words of phrases like the walls are closing in, worse than Watergate, Russian collusion, constitutional crisis, existential threat or obstruction of justice, they’d be wealthy. Additionally, imagine the money we could’ve made just this month on the phrases national security, violated his oath, this isn’t about politics; it’s about patriotism or this is a solemn moment for our country.

Democrats have hit a new high for hitting lows. Never before has a president been impeached without committing a crime. Never before has a president been impeached with prosecutors introducing just hearsay evidence. Never before has a president been impeached without the president’s legal team being able to call a single witness.

Nixon’s legal team got to call witnesses to present a defense. Clinton’s legal team got to call witnesses to present a defense. President Trump’s team wasn’t allowed to call witnesses or present a defense.

In February, 2018, then-Chairman Devin Nunes issued a memo about FISA abuse that he’d discovered. The DC media immediately criticized Chairman Nunes for being President Trump’s shill on Capitol Hill. Shortly thereafter, Adam Schiff published a memo that insisted that Chairman Nunes’ memo got everything wrong. This year, Michael Horowitz, the DOJ IG, published the Horowitz Report. The Horowitz Report was published on Dec. 9. Horowitz testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Dec. 11.

One thing that the Horowitz Report clarified was that then-Chairman Nunes got virtually everything right in his published memo. Another thing that IG Horowitz’s report stated was that Chairman Schiff got virtually every major statement wrong. Further, the media still hasn’t admitted that Nunes got it right. Finally, they’ll never admit that Nunes isn’t President Trump’s shill.

The great news is that President Trump has rendered the MSM impotent. The MSM used to tell the people that they were stupid. Enter President Trump. Suddenly, President Trump is telling Jim Acosta that he’s “a rude, terrible person”:

Saying that the MSM underperformed is like saying that Adam Schiff isn’t trustworthy. The reaction from the masses is, putting it gently, predictable.

The most unappreciated story of the year is the least reported story of the year. When the Mueller Report was published, the MSM didn’t report the fact that Special Counsel Mueller knew on Day 1 that the Clinton campaign had paid for the Steele Dossier and that the information in the dossier was unverified. Despite that, Robert Mueller’s team ignored this exculpatory information and kept ‘investigating’ for 2 additional years.

While they kept ‘investigating’, Mueller’s team divided the nation while crippling the president. This wasn’t just unnecessary. It was destructive to President Trump’s negotiations with dangerous foreign governments. It hung like a cloud over our economy, too.

As destructive as those things were, they aren’t the most disturbing aspect of the Mueller investigation. Despite spending 2 years and virtually $50,000,000 on the faux investigation, they didn’t investigate the FBI. Despite the fact that FBI hid exculpatory evidence from the FISC, despite the fact that an FBI lawyer doctored an email from the CIA from saying that Carter Page was a CIA source to saying that Carter Page wasn’t a CIA source, it’s inexcusable that Mueller didn’t investigate the FBI.

When Carter Page sues the FBI, he should also sue Mueller personally for protecting the agency he once directed. There’s no justification for not investigating the FBI when the special counsel was tasked with investigating Russian interference into the 2016 US presidential election. The Steele Dossier was nothing without Russian disinformation. That isn’t my opinion. That’s the finding of the Horowitz Report.

That’s the definition of cronyism. Compare the blind spot in the Mueller Report with the detailed work done by Michael Horowitz. IG Horowitz didn’t protect the FBI the way that Director Mueller protected the FBI. Horowitz told the truth about the FBI and the truth hurt.

Had people listened to Rep. Louie Gohmert, we might’ve gotten spared this lengthy national nightmare. This article lays out the case that Rep. Gohmert put together against Mueller:

Gohmert’s criticism of Mueller did not begin with Mueller’s FBI directorship, but rather, hearkened back to when Mueller was an assistant U.S. attorney in Boston in the 1980s, then Acting U.S. attorney, during the time that FBI agent John Connolly, who is now in prison on an unrelated conviction, protected Whitey Bulger, thereby allowing four innocent men to spend decades in prison, where two of them would later die before all were exonerated by a federal judge.

That’s the personification of corruption. Letting 4 innocent men languish in prison, with 2 of them dying while unjustly incarcerated, is the nastiest civil rights violations I’ve heard of in half a century. That shouldn’t ever have happened. As a Christian, it’s difficult to give Mueller the benefit of that doubt.

Lindsey Graham summarizes things nicely in his closing statement:

Once the Russian sub-source said “everything in the dossier, I disavow.” The minute that’s revealed, what’s the justification for continuing the Mueller Investigation? The minute Mueller learned that Carter Page wasn’t a Russian asset should’ve been the instant Mueller should’ve stopped the investigation.

If we’d had a press that cared about civil rights and doing the right thing, this would’ve been a highly publicized story. Because we’ve got corrupt media organizations dotting the landscape, it was mostly overlooked. Here at LFR, I’ll just say this: not on my watch. The fact that Democrats sat silent says everything. Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.
