Reading an account of a New Yorker reporter sidling along side the junior senator from California, one can learn a plethora of minutia that is irrelevant to most Americans.
A reporter with the galant news magazine, Dana Goodyear, spent some time with her recently, gleaning some quite important information, like the fact that tapped the glass of a bakery case in the Blue Bottle coffee shop in Beverly Hills. Amazing. Even more amazing was the fact that no one noticed. It's in the July 22 issue of The New Yorker.
Among the moments of Robert Mueller’s House Intelligence committee hearing testimony that were baffling for him, perhaps the most baffling was the task of understanding why it was unusual to even use the word exonerate in his own report on Russian collusion.
Mueller testified before two committees July 25. It was at the later committee that Rep. John Ratcliffe asked Mueller about why he used the word exonerate when it is never used in any judicial proceeding where an individual is charged.
Ratcliffe essentially trapped Mueller, since the director claimed that operated under, was guided by Justice Department procedures and principles. It wasn't.
Rep Devin Nunes ridiculed House Democrats at the House Intelligence Committee hearing, the afternoon of July 25 wondering out loud if they will ever find the fictitious Loch Ness monster as they continue their political theater. It was a wonderful sight to behold. The loquacious Rep. Adam Schiff and all of his acolytes, the righteous Democrat, being forced to listen to a public takedown, a verbal lashing.
If they were gasping for air before Nunes started his address, they were in need of a defibrillator after he finished. The best part is that they could not respond to his accusations. They were focused on tricking Robert Mueller into quoting damning evidence from his own report. The plan backfired however, because Mueller failed to perform the task ascribed to him. He was missing in action.
When people, in this case, representatives and media types - liberal reporters and columnists don’t like what Rep. Devin. Nunes says, they don’t dispute the facts that he shares, they attack the messenger. During the Intelligence Committee hearing July 25, Nunes mocked the Democrat insistence to bring Robert Mueller to the committee, describing it as the last gasp before it dies a necessary death, or as a futile search for the Loch Ness monster.
We all know the story of the intolerant, poor, uneducated white man in “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Trouble is, if it the movie were made today, a black congresswomen representing Los Angeles would be the best fit for the role of Bob Ewell, even if she is black.
Waters has taken the mantle of intolerance and run with it, to the point that much of what has occurred since her public encouragement to act the part of Ewell and attack conservatives, Republicans, could easily be attributed to her. This is not supposed to be what Democrats and people like her are supposed to be about. They are supposed to be living out the tolerant, freedom loving dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who had to fight for the right to appear publicly.
