But What Are They Trying To Cover Up?


My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has a post up at The American Spectator about the Democrats’ use of their double secret impeachment process as a coverup. Yes, it’s fairly obvious that they have plenty to hide, but what is the real secret they want to keep hidden?

There are plenty of individual crimes that are coming to light as a result of investigations by Attorney General Barr, U. S. Attorney Durham, and Inspector General Horowitz. At least one grand jury has been empaneled, and various members of the Deep State are lawyering up in expectation of being indicted. If those cases proceed as I expect, various connections between individuals and organizations will come to light, and we may see a significant level of cooperation and coordination among them.

It may be that it’s that coordination which is being covered up. The Gentle Reader shouldn’t be surprised to discover that people with similar views take actions consistent with those views. They might be expect to do so acting independently, each acting in his own personal interest. However, the possibility exists that some would organize their actions together. If those acts were illegal, it’s also reasonable that they would band together to obstruct any investigation. Such organized obstruction is one of the definitions of a racketeering enterprise.

The corrupt entanglement of bureaucrats and politicians was given a boost during the 8 years the country was run by a Chicago politician, but corrupt organizations are parasites. They weaken their host, and they fail when the host takes steps to throw them off or when the host dies. They don’t want us to see enough to effective clean up the infection.

Democracy Dies in Derpness™


The headline editor at WaPo did not have a good day yesterday. Most of the Gentle Readers will have heard about the changing of “terrorist” to “austere religious scholar” which resulted in the #WashPostObituaries and #WashingtonPostObits hashtags on Twitter. I thought about joining in, but I decided to take a Sunday afternoon nap instead. If I had played, the tweets probably would been like these—

John Wilkes Booth, noted interpreter of Shakespeare, dies at 26.

Richard Plantagenet, doting uncle, tragically slain at 32.

Al Capone, retired Chicago businessman, suffers fatal heart attack at 48.
