VDH Explains The Insanity

Not for the first time, Victor Davis Hanson explains why the Left have become so totally fucking unhinged:

The National Security Council was weaponized and thus unmasked the names of surveilled Americans and leaked their names to the press to undermine the Trump campaign. The Department of Justice was weaponized to ensure Hillary Clinton was exonerated for her misdeeds concerning her email server and quid pro quo collusion with a variety of foreign and domestic influence peddlers and buyers. The FBI and CIA were weaponized to subvert the Trump campaign, by peddling an unverified smear dossier, paid for by Hillary Clinton, by implanting informants into the Trump campaign, and by undermining a FISA court through dishonest presentations of evidence for warrants to spy on American citizens.
All such behavior was assumed to ensure the landslide Clinton victory and thus would be seen as sacrifice beyond the call of duty to be rewarded by a President Clinton not as illegal behavior to be punished during a Trump administration. And as a result, the more culpability that was exposed, the more the culpable went on the offensive—on the theory that constant attack is the best defense against their own criminal liability.

And they lost, and now they’re going to get investigated and people are (I hope) going to go to jail or face massive fines and criminal records or lose their pensions, or all the above (which I hope even more).  As Conrad Black puts it:

Now they must remove him, or he will try to imprison them, and in fact, they have almost no chance of removing him. We are doomed to a fierce battle that will end quickly if the Republicans hold the House of Representatives and Trump can get rid of Sessions and Rosenstein and indict his enemies, who have certainly asked for it.

It’s no less than the pricks deserve, and here’s a warning note to AG Sessions:  you’d better get it done, or you’ll be lumped in with them for failing to do your duty.


  1. My suggestion for a new Federal law:

    Any person elected, appointed, or hired as a public servant, who uses their position for personal gain at the expense of the public good, shall be guilty upon conviction of the felony of Violation of the Public Trust. This shall be a Capital Crime, no other lesser punishment shall be allowed or accepted.

    I don’t care if it’s a cop accepting $50 for not writing a speeding ticket or the Secretary of State accepting millions for her “foundation” to allow access to government officials, they’ve violated the public trust, strap them to a chair and throw the switch.

    Yeah, I know the very people who’d need to pass such a law are the ones who’d end up riding Sparky, so there’s a snowball’s chance in Hell of it ever happening. A guy can dream can’t he?

  2. There are a helluva lot of people in DC who should be swinging from lamp posts.

    1. Any idea how many lamp posts there are in DC? Are there enough to allocate one per pole, or would they have to share? Multiple bodies per pole would be tacky, methinks. Got to be done right!

  3. There was a video I saw on youtube some while back, maybe 6 months. An Israeli guy, talking about how we are in a civil war right now, it is just no one has started shooting yet.

    He said that two political parties can hate each other’s guts and it will still work as long as they accept the results of the election. But when one party stops accepting it, and denies it (Resist!), then there is a civil war whether you admit it or not. This is the 2nd time the Democrats have refused to accept the results of a presidential election.

    As for the shooting… sooner or later I think it will have to happen. The left is going to make it happen by pushing and pushing until the right says screw it and opens fire. With the antifa and occupy types, it’s pretty much a miracle no one has just plain pulled out their guns and cut them down at least once these past couple of years.

    There’s a pretty good 2 hour documentary on the Spanish Civil War floating around on youtube I watched a few years ago. What stuck with was how, the left started it by massacring a police barracks, and then both sides went at it and neither side bothered with taking prisoners. Either side, go into a town, find and shoot every man that spoke or acted for the other side. In a couple of years, 20% of Spain died.

    They were still mostly agrarian at the time, most of the population wasn’t in the cities like it is now. If the shooting starts, yes, I think the right is going to win. The left are always place ideology above competence, so once it is on for real, things won’t go so well for them.

    But it doesn’t really matter who wins does it? The bloodshed will be so extreme and the infrastructure so messed up that many, many will die. Nno matter who wins, the left or the right, America as we know it will be over. In Spain they let the defeated socialists, the one who lived by running away, come back. They told them if they ever opened their mouths again about socialism, they would be shot.

    There is no way the right can win a civil war without stamping out the enemy or driving them into exile. And afterward, going back to Freedom of Speech, live and let live and say what you like, will be over if what you are saying or voting for is leftist. Communism and Islam are not compatible with loyalty to the Constitution and after such a victory we can expect Amendments that actually say that and deny to such people the protections of the Bill of Rights.
