And the LEFT wins again

Sadly, I watched a bit of the Merrick Garland Hearings yesterday………..And I felt HE WON.   Rep Nadler was disgustingly partisan, so cheerily announcing “Your time is UP!” to Republicans as soon as he possibly could.   Going along with every Democrat’s objection, etc.

One Republican Rep slammed Garland for calling American parents “Domestic Terrorists” and, of course, Garland’s letter did NOT call them that and Garland was ready and oh-so-able and happy to say that.

Jim Jordan was about to introduce a video showing a School Board meeting with angry parents but it was immediately blocked, “I OBJECT!” said a Democrat female Rep,  who cautioned that they must say they’re going to present a video 48 hours before a hearing.  SO, that didn’t happen.   Nadler, of course, cheerily said “NO VIDEO!” (Yippeeee!)  And won.

It almost felt like the Republicans were very good people who happened to be attacked, tied up, and put in the trunk of a car with duct tape over their mouths…..kicking and screaming and making ZERO NOISE.

The fun just NEVER quits, does it.

As for MERRICK GARLAND;  remember when Obama nominated him and he almost got Supreme Court judge because, gee, the guy’s so “MODERATE”!?    The hell with that moderate label for THIS jerk.    We should have known better to even have as many Republicans almost elect him.  THank GOD they didn’t.

What do you think of this guy and WHEN ARE REPUBLICANS GOING TO GET OUT OF THE TRUNK?!!!!!!

    I have to ask what you would want the repubs to do if you could have them do anything you can think of, then of what consequence would it have if they did that.

    Kid’s question is a good one. As much as I hate to say this, it would appear as if the Democrats were much smarter than the Republicans. Not “James Bond” smart, but almost. The Trump dossier was about as amateur as one could get, but it was a good effort. The first problem for Republicans is that no one on the right seems to be able to keep their mouths shut. Toss a microphone out into the middle of the floor, and Jordan (and others) jump on top of it almost immediately. He seems “starved” for attention — has to make sure that the folks back home are seeing his mug on the telley.

    Maybe it’s a matter of funding. I’m not sure how that works for members of congress (MOCs), but I assume each representative has an operating budget of some amount. Maybe the Republicans can’t afford to hire “operatives” that help them discover what the Democrats are up to, but you know … the congress thing is a war of sorts. I would think that any MOC worth their salt would have “contacts” all over Washington that would feed them useful information … not to announce it in front of a TV camera, but rather to use in their campaign to defeat their “enemies.” Sort of like a miniaturized version of the OSS. Why I think this is important is because no MOC should ask a question of a witness that he/she doesn’t already know the answer to. And the questioning of witnesses ought to have a purpose beyond one of those televised “gotcha” moments that disappear almost as soon as they arrive.

    And then, you’d think that MOCs would know the rules. If Mr. Jordon doesn’t know by now that the rules require a 48-hour advance notification of a video presentation, then what in the heck are we paying him for? They say that you get only ONE opportunity to make a good first impression. Sadly, Mr. Jordan had that opportunity a long time ago and missed it. Here’s something else that’s sad: the MOCs should have figured all this out a long time ago. Since they haven’t figured it out, all we have left is that damn clown shown and the organ grinder with a monkey on a leash.

    How about BE SURE OF YOUR POINTS WHEN YOU QUESTION?

    How about MAKE A HUGE NOISE IN THE MEDIA SO PEOPLE NOTICE WHAT YOU”RE SAYING?

    How about INSISTING THEY SHOW THAT VIDEO….REMINDING THEM THAT THE 48 HR RULE IS APPARENTLY NOT A RULE.

    How about BE MORE CLEAR AND DIRECT IN QUESTIONING and BE TOUGHER IN EXPOSING LIES AND MISCHARACTERIZATIONS?

    KNOW YOUR STUFF BEFORE YOU CALL FOR HEARINGS.

    KID…I think that’s a start.

    MUSTANG…I don’t think the MOCs didn’t know answers to their questions…you’re right about that importance….but they get lazy when the person doesn’t answer correctly.

    THEY NEVER PUSH PUSH PUSH…..GARLAND’S son in law makes millions on CRT and GARLAND said he wasn’t aware of a ‘slight’ ethics problem?

    PUSH IT HARD in questioning…..make it SO OUTRAGEOUS even the stinkin’ , IGNORING, leftwing media gets outraged enough to blast the R’s and THEN maybe people will hear the truth.

    Unfortunately, the left doesn’t care about any of this and they are certainly not interested in the truth or could do anything intelligent with the information anyway. They don’t care Z. They vote dem and however many don’t vote, their ballots are filled in, and more, with fradulent votes that no one is doing anything about managing in the future.

    What we’re dealing with is an attitude shown by many government twerps. Catherine Austin Fitts has a story that exemplifies this. When she was the assistant secretary of housing in HUD, she was in a meeting with the cabinet secretary on his regular call with his 10 regional deputies. A volatile man, he pitched a fit when the deputy in California had not done what he told him to do. She described 10 minutes of pure screaming at the man. When he could finally get a word in, he said “sir, I couldn’t do it.” “WHY NOT!!!” “because it’s illegal.”

    What came next speaks VOLUMES. The secretary said “ILLEGAL? Don’t tell me ‘it’s illegal.’ The law doesn’t apply to me!!”

    People for whom truth is not a value (which usually means power IS the value) are more likely to pull fast ones. We knew at the time Garland was what he has been shown to be. He would have been another lackey on the court, saying the same thing that cabinet secretary said. Parliamentary procedure is only important to them when they can bonk their enemy on the head with it. We still like to play by the rules.

    I’m tendin’ to my own business for Judgment Day. But there are gonna be a LOT of sentences handed down that day.

    BAYSIDER, actually, Garland had a fairly moderate reputation and I think we all know how close he came to becoming a justice…thank GOD he did NOT. He is definitely showing now what Obama liked in him then………

    AND then there is this; AN EXAMPLE OF REPUBLICANS BEING INVOLVED in ANYTHING meaningful during this presidency is the 1/6 COMMISSION!!!! There are two Republicans on it!! “WHAT”?

    Only Republicans on it aren’t really Republicans; Kinzinger and Cheney! Yup! The two HATE TRUMPERS will be ALLOWED to be on that commission …for ‘fairness’ !!! HAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

    Sadly, a Representative Jim Banks has humiliated himself and Republicans by having been turned down by Pelosi to serve as another Republican on that commission because he now wrote a letter saying he was a RANKING MEMBER!!!…and wants to have information found at those meetings! He is NOT a ranking member, he was taken OFF the committee. Please tell me I’m wrong, FOX had some lame reason why his letter wasn’t as offensive as it seems… CNN is having a FIELD DAY with this. As USUAL, the…. (I can’t say the word in my mind right now!) 🙂

    Not sure that link will work , but you might see what a REALLY HAPPY day this is for Salon, Esquire, CNN, ABC, ROLLING STONE, etc etc etc.

    FOX has nothing on it, sadly…was hoping to get some fairly reasonable interpretation of what Banks has done 😦

    I saw that with hands clenched. It looked odd, but only in late stages of dementia is this common. The brain can no longer stop the muscle contracture signaling, and they tend to curl and clench up in fetal position with muscles contracting in the dominant fashion – curling in.

    I do disagree about Garland. I read plenty about him at the time to peg him as a swamp rat in a cover coat. I do remember his preference for what seemed like unwarranted regulations over small business.

    Well, we’re stuck with Garland, no matter what, aren’t we………disgusting little worm. He reminds me of Fauci, who has been found to be lying in regard to Gain of Function and the NIH..but who didn’t know that? I heard someone say recently, when I said “At least Obama stopped that funding” (which is the case), “Obama stopped it then because he didn’t want that stain on his administration”..oy.

    So, that kind of curling in IS very late stage, near death, I believe….that isn’t what Biden displayed………….I have to laugh at Hannity tonight, who’s taking any little thing as THE WORST…Biden said “Here at the LA Harbor…and ..” couldn’t remember ‘Long Beach’…..He said something like “Where am I?” and Hannity’s now saying He didn’t know where he WAS…. such hyperbole as to destroy the truth, that Biden really IS slipping…but he knew WHERE HE WAS!!!!! it’s not like he was IN Long Beach and couldn’t remember!!!
