When the moral compass is broken
We have never seen anything like the three-and-a-half-year war engaged by America’s domestic enemies against an elected president. Some might call it treason. It sure isn’t “loyal opposition.”
Normally, we might applaud any oversight effort to keep the government honest.
But Nancy Pelosi’s new House committee to investigate disbursal of coronavirus stimulus funds is suspect from the start.
In fact, appointing people like Maxine Waters and James Clyburn is like seating the Beagle Boys on a panel studying ways to improve security at Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin.
California Rep. Waters, who has been a socialist kleptocrat all her career, is also famous for urging leftist mobs in 2018 to harass Trump administration officials whenever they appeared in public:
Waters: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.’
Sounds to me like she’ll be first in line if Mrs. Pelosi needs someone to chair a new House committee on “civility.”
For his part, Rep. Clyburn (D-SC) revealingly said that the government’s response to the pandemic should be a “tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.” Some watchdog.
There is no question that Mrs. Pelosi’s latest gambit has little to do with accountability (since when did Democrats care about guarding – not raiding – the public purse?) and everything to do with scoring points against President Trump.
Having failed to derail his candidacy via FBI spying, and watching their beloved Russian collusion hoax come back to bite them, the Left tried to turn a presidential phone call to Ukraine into a national security crisis and grounds for impeachment.
All they did was expose how deep the Bidens were into the graft of that former Soviet satellite nation, a topic the media avoid at all costs. You might even fault Mr. Trump for not looking into it sooner, since it involved influence peddling at the highest levels of government during the Obama administration.
