Yesterday’s fiasco in the House Judiciary Committee was both frightening and embarrassing. Back when Republicans ran the House, committee hearings had plenty of grandstanding but they broke plenty of news, too. Tuesday’s hearing of the House Impeachment Rubberstamp Committee (that’s what it’s famous for these days) got off to a terrible start when Chairman Jerry Nadler got into a car accident on his way to the hearing. It isn’t a stretch to say that it went downhill after that. Perhaps, the accident should be viewed as an omen.

Two things became immediately clear the minute the hearing got started. First, Democrats weren’t going to let William Barr answer their questions. Next, these Democrats were going to pound home the theme that Portland’s riots were “mostly peaceful protests.” At one point, Barr interrupted the Democrats and said (I’m paraphrasing here) “This is a hearing. Shouldn’t I be heard?”

The ‘Wall of Moms’ aren’t female patriots. Reporting from Portland indicates that they’re human shields used to protect weapons-carrying Antifa/BLM rioters. That isn’t what patriots do.

The Democrats’ storyline was demolished during Steve Chabot’s questioning of AG Barr:

It was demolished when AG Barr asked the rhetorical question “The courts are under attack. Since when is it ok to try to burn down a federal court? If someone went down the street to the Prettyman Court, that beautiful courthouse we have right at the bottom of the hill, and started breaking windows and firing industrial grade fireworks to start a fire and threw in kerosene balloons and start fires in the court, is that ok? Is that ok now?”

When AG Barr tried answering the Democrats’ questions in ways that didn’t advance the Democrats’ storyline, they’d cut AG Barr off, saying that their time was limited and that they were reclaiming their time. I didn’t keep count of how often Democrats pulled that stunt but it was easily a dozen times. Barr would then politely stop his reply and let Democrats make asses of themselves:

Democrats looked like jerks and idiots throughout. When Democrats didn’t get the answer they wanted, the frequent reply was “I’m reclaiming my time.” Democrats had a storyline that they’d established and they weren’t deviating from it.

What’s disgusting is that Nadler, Lofgren and the other Democrat idiots didn’t do is propose a solution to the anarchists torching once-beautiful cities like Seattle, Portland and Chicago. Democrats spent the day insisting that federal law enforcement officers were the bad guys and that Antifa-BLM rioters were the good guys.

If you want to live with a Democrat majority that thinks that burning down “the system” is the right thing to do, just vote Democrat. If you’re a thoughtful person who cherishes peaceful streets where riots are stopped quickly, you must vote for Republicans. It’s that simple.
