As I always say, “Weak people take strong positions on weak issues.”
Exhibit A for this is the recently released Mueller report.
Democrats have lost their damned minds over this report. They didn’t get the result they wanted, an indictment of President Trump, so they figured if they keep investigating, they will come up with something they can use to remove Trump from office.
Mueller’s report was very clear, on both the accusations of collusion and obstruction, there was NOT sufficient evidence to bring charges in either circumstance! Period. End of sentence.
Was there unflattering information about Trump and his aides in the report? Yes. Did Trump and some of his aides walk up to the line between legal and illegal? Yes. But, in our system of justice either you violated the law, or you didn’t, and Mueller clearly concluded that Trump and his aides did not cross the line.
So, legally Trump and his aides are in the clear. Politically is where the problem is — for Democrats — especially Black Democrats.
Let’s get one thing straight, Democrats don’t have the guts to actually file articles of impeachment against President Trump after Mueller has clearly stated there is not sufficient evidence for him to bring any charges.
Now radical liberal Democrat members of Congress like Maxine Waters and Al Green are running over each other demanding that the president be impeached.
Hmmm, do you really want to go down that road?
Let me paint a picture for you to consider.
Jussie Smollett, the actor who concocted a fake story about being assaulted in Chicago, had all charges dismissed against him. Legally, like Trump, he is in the clear.
In all probability, the U.S. Department of Justice is going to file federal charges against Smollett for mail fraud because he mailed a fake letter threatening himself but made it seem as though the letter was mailed by someone else.
I can guarantee as clear as day that Waters and Green will be the first to claim that the Justice Department is only doing it because Smollett is Black, with absolutely no evidence to support their claim.
But wait. Let me make sure I understand. Mueller found insufficient evidence to bring forward charges of collusion and obstruction against Trump, but Democrats say to hell with Mueller, we want impeachment.
But, if and when something similar happens to a Black, then it is racist? I am through. I have a headache!
The one takeaway for me in the Mueller report that no one seems to be talking about is how the report made clear that, in America, we have two systems of justice. One for the rich and well connected (Jussie Smollett and Hillary Clinton), and one for regular people like Pookie and LaQueesha.
Russian intelligence knew how corrupt and vulnerable the Clinton’s were to their intelligence operations. They knew the Clinton’s loyalty was to money, not America.
Every country — let me repeat — EVERY country, that has the means, spies and interferes in the internal affairs of other countries.
I laid this out in a column I wrote two years ago titled, “Russia is Winning the War for American Minds.”
Americans, for the first time in history, have had a front row seat to a psychological operations campaign live and in living color, in real time. This, indeed, is unprecedented.
So, to radical Black liberals, you better be careful! You didn’t like the results of the Mueller report, so you want to treat Trump as though he was indicted.
When this happens to someone Black, remember you started it!
In liberalism, intent is more important than results. As a matter of fact, that is the sole basis of liberalism not results.
So, when white folks hold you to the same standard, please spare me your cries of racism!
Democrats are in the process of ensuring the re-election of Donald Trump as president. They have provided absolutely no serious vision of where they want to take America.
They have offered nothing but grandiose platitudes to the American people, especially to Blacks: reparations, DC statehood, etc.
Have you noticed that not one Democrat candidate for president has mentioned anything about the killings going on in Chicago? Or the stagnant wages of the Black worker despite the phenomenal Trump economy for Blacks?
They have spent more time talking about amnesty for the upwards of 30 million illegals because they are too ignorant to realize that when you increase cheap labor in the marketplace wages go down!
The reason Democrats are obsessing about the Mueller report is because they have nothing of any substance by way of policy to offer the American people.
The reaction by radical Black liberals to the Mueller report should serve as a cautionary tale for the Black community.
There will be a “Black” version of Donald Trump and he will be subjected to the same treatment as our current president. When it happens just admit that what’s good for the goose is good for the gander; and it has nothing to do with race.
