Snitch on Neighbors is New Viral Ethic

Mayor de Blasio encouraged citizens to snitch on their neighbors:

“We still know there’s some people who need to get the message. And that means sometimes making sure the enforcement is there to educate people and make clear we’ve got to have social distancing,”

So, New Yorkers responded by overloading His Honor’s snitch line with middle fingers.

 

Plenty of FBI Abuse to go Around In IG Report

Eli Lake at Bloomberg thinks the FBI is lucky, in a weird sort of way. That’s because the IG report shows the FBI abuse wasn’t just aimed at the Trump Campaign. The IG also found 39 other defective FISA applications.

In the twisted politics of the Trump Era, some of bureau’s defenders might actually view this report as good news: It shows that the investigation of the Trump campaign was not necessarily politically motivated. The bureau made the same kinds of mistakes with suspects who were not connected to the Trump campaign.

 

Weaponizing the Justice Department

President Trump is weaponizing the Justice Department. At least that’s what former insiders told Rachel Maddow.

And they thought Trump was a Russian asset. So the FBI used a phony dossier to get FISA court approval to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign. But when Special Counsel Mueller investigated Russian Collusion for 2 1/2 yers he came up empty handed.

Weaponizing Wing Man

So now AG Barr is investigating the investigators. And President Obama’s “wing man” Eric Holder calls that “unprecedented” behavior.

Trump Tweet Trips Barr

President Trump is driving his best Attorney General, who never recused himself, around the bend. So much so that A.G. Barr told ABC News that Trump is making it impossible to do his job.

Trump Tweet

Here’s why. When federal prosecutors recommended a 7-9 year sentence for the president’s odd associate, Roger Stone, Trump was moved to tweet:

This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, and nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!

As it turns out, the Trump tweet may have been right. Barr’s Justice Department wasn’t going to allow “this miscarriage of justice.” They had already decided to ask the judge for a more lenient sentence.

But now it looked like Barr was just following Trump’s orders. So the original 4 prosecutors got mad, quit and hell broke loose.

Acme Impeachment Anvil Falls on Wily Democrats

Things haven’t worked out well for the Wily Democrats. It’s dawning on them that Joe Biden has never won a primary in his 77 years.

Then there was there was the caucus chaos in Iowa.

Elizabeth Warren’s plans to appeal to the far left seem to be losing their favor. But that’s only because Bernie Sanders, a 78 year old socialist, who’s not really a Democrat, is leading the party even further left.

The 38 year old small city Mayor Pete nips at his heels. And 78 year old humongous city Republican Mayor Mike, with billions to burn, is coming on strong. And he says he’s willing to spend whatever it takes.

Wily Democrats

Maybe Amy Klobuchar will prevail in sensible shoes.

But whatever happens, they’ll always have impeachment.

Beep! Beep!
