As we said a few months ago, many in the GOP are more than happy to have Ms. Pelosi leading the Dems in the House. And she keeps clinging, Castro style, to power.
Ossoff could have been the begining of something for the Dems, and indeed this apears to be so. But it’s not the “something” they were hoping for.
Oh, for the heady days of hope, change, and Pelosi One, huh Nancy?
Most Americans have no real idea of the massive power vested (taken?) in the federal bureaucracy. Sure most people get that agencies enforce laws. But most don’t know that agencies do much more than that, and often create what amounts to law out of thin air via “rules” and “guidance.” Woe to to the business caught up in the bureaucratic net.
This is the “administrative state.” Part of the “deep state.”
This article has been removed by The Huffington Post or Huff Post (now that they are trying to cut out Ariana Huffington). And indeed it seems some of the writers at the site are huffing something. Check this out.
It’s insanity. It is completely divorced from reality. So this is what the rank and file are being fed? No wonder yesterday happened. These people honestly think they are part of some “resistance” instead of doing the bidding of folks like the Clintons,

Some think Obamacare was designed to implode so that it would create the impetus for socialized, taxpayer funded medicine. Some say that Obamacare is just a flat out disaster that was constructed horribly by people who thought they were smarter than they actually are. I think it’s a mix of both but more parts just plain old idiotic statism than any sort of conspiracy.
He was one of the crony “kings” until yesterday. Once the toast of the Obama White House, (he headed the “Jobs Council”) the shareholders of General Electric gave him the ole’ heave ho earlier than expected.
Of course Immelt leaves the scene an extremely wealthy man and much of this wealth comes courtesy of US taxpayers.
James Comey is a strange character and one who inserted himself (likely) forever into the American consciousness – at least on some level. (You’ve got to think that he’s pleased about that.) Hero. Villain. Bureaucrat. Washington “insider.” Leaker. Take your pick of labels depending on your political disposition and/or desire for the truth.
Monsanto is arguably the world’s most crony company.
Now this is an interesting little video. Lorretta Lynch handing Clinton camp talking points to the Director of the FBI?
As we’ve said here many times we have plenty of problems with Mr. Trump. But Trump’s critique of the old media, legacy media, whatever, is pretty spot on. The media helped Obama get elected, protected Obama during his presidency, (A pretty good case could have been made for Obama’s impeachment.) and went whole hog in for Hillary Clinton. Of course The New York Times and CNN are pissed. THEY LOST.
The Democrats are in many respects a regional party now. The current obsession with Russia and the effort to take Trump down, at what seems almost any cost has become clinical. The Dems seem to have divorced themselves from reality and now wring their hands – gollum like – as they contemplate Trump’s downfall. It’s weird. It is bad for the country to say the least. And it isn’t good for the Dems.
Consider that Maxine Waters is now held up as a leader within the party.
Brennan’s an interesting guy. In the 70s, before he was in the CIA, he even voted for the Communist candidate for president.
Obama is a failed president in most respects. Though I will grant that he is a re-elected failed president which makes his case all the more odd. His one “accomplishment” was Obamacare which has proven a failure and is currently imploding.
He lost the House. He lost the Senate. He blew up Libya. He helped spark the unrest in Syria. His IRS persecuted those who called for the rule of law. The economy sputtered and sputtered more.
