Why the Mueller Report will be a big let down for Democrats

From the beginning of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election meddling, there has been a wide gap between the expectations of President Trump’s critics and the scope of Mueller’s probe. He was never charged with taking down a President and thus far nothing he’s uncovered has come close to doing that, but that’s the only acceptable outcome in the minds of most Democrats.

There are two dynamics in play from the left that drive their hopes regarding the Mueller investigation. Both seem similar but the separation between them becomes more apparent upon closer examination. The first dynamic is their hope that the election itself was rigged. They want to feel vindicated for never accepting the President even after the final votes were counted. They were sure Hillary Clinton had actually won the election even when it was clear that she had lost and Mueller’s probe represents a potential for them to scream about the election being stolen from them.

The second dynamic surrounds ongoing collusion. They believe the President and his campaign worked with the Russians and/or Wikileaks, but more importantly they believe the President is currently “owned” by the Russians. They cite unsubstantiated reports and fictional dossiers to demonstrate their righteousness in an ongoing fight against the corruption of the White House from within and by outside forces. It’s the justification they seek for remaining incessantly unhinged.

In short, they want Mueller to prove to the world they were right to object initially and they were right to perpetually oppose everything and anything attached to President Trump.

This is the part of the story where I must point out my own opposition to the President. Unlike leftists, I don’t go with the standard NPC ideology of “Orange man bad.” I am critical of the President’s tone and how he presents himself in his role. I object to his support for criminal justice reform, ban on bump stocks, use of tariffs, and failures regarding the budget, Planned Parenthood, and Obamacare. But I support most of his other policies, including border security, tax cuts, and bureaucracy cuts. My opposition or support is based on the individual actions he takes, words that he speaks, and policies he endorses. Some may say I’m playing in the middle, but that’s far from the case. I am playing on the side of conservatism and limited-government federalism. When he’s right, he’s right. When he’s wrong, he’s wrong.

It’s important to understand how I see the President to lend credit to what I’m about to say:

The Mueller report is going to disappoint leftists greatly, but they’ll still try to spin it as a win regardless of what it says.

Very few revelations from Mueller’s investigation have entered the realm of conspiracy or collusion. His team has uncovered wrongdoings by multiple people for a variety of reasons, but so far nothing has even resembled the smoking gun the left has sought that ties the President directly or indirectly to efforts by the Russians to influence the results of the 2016 election.

It is all but certain that Russia tried to influence the election itself. That part is not in question. We can draw certain conclusions from this and wonder if it had any actual impact on the results, but the real question we all should be asking is why they did it. Do they have “dirt” on Trump, as many have speculated? Did they feel Clinton’s history of intervention was not preferable to President Trump’s campaign policies of limited engagement outside of America’s direct interests? Were they playing the chaos factor as they have been shown to be doing now?

This last one seems to be the most likely scenario. While leftists want to say the Russians helped get President Trump elected while his supporters say the Russians weren’t involved at all, the most compelling theory is that Russia has been trying to seed discontent in any way possible regardless of the political ramifications. In other words, they didn’t care who won as long as Americans were as polarized as possible.

This theory is corroborated by the recent charges filed against Russian operatives and the implications of their alleged missions:

Russian meddling is about dividing us, not helping Trump

https://noqreport.com/2018/10/19/russian-meddling-dividing-us-not-helping-trump/Russia is meddling with our elections. They’re meddling with our entire political system. They’re meddling in our culture, freedoms, and methods of communication. I once believed they were trying to help Donald Trump become President. Now I realize they are simply elements of chaos.

Today’s report of charges filed against a Russian agent working against American interests is striking for two reasons. First, the details they’ve been able to uncover about “Project Lakhta” are astounding. Second, their strategic goal was NOT to get one person or one party into office but to sow division among the American people regardless of their political ideology.

This all brings us back to the Mueller investigation. When his report is finally released, it will likely implicate many in President Trump’s orbit who committed questionable or even criminal acts. It will draw connections between these members of Trump’s orbit and the Wikileaks posting of Democrats’ emails that painted them in a bad light.

What the report won’t show are the two things leftists desperately seek: confirmation of a “hacked” election or evidence of past and/or ongoing collusion with the Russians.

The left wants to be vindicated for their doubts and justified for their unhinged opposition, but the Mueller report won’t give them either. Instead, they’ll be given a few nothingburgers they’ll try to spin into bigger deals than they really are.

Graham Ledger: Democrats, mainstream media panicking over William Barr’s upcoming investigations

Graham Ledger Democrats mainstream media panicking over William Barrs upcoming investigations

It’s human nature for people to talk about one of two things: What they want the most and what they fear the most. That’s why the rhetoric coming from the Democratic Party and their lapdogs in mainstream media for the last month has all surrounded Attorney General William Barr, the people working with him, and Barr’s boss, the President of the United States. The left has been inconsolable ever since the Mueller report did not send the President into the tailspin they so desperately sought.

One America News anchor Graham Ledger called them out for the hypocrisy surrounding their unhinged reactions to Barr’s upcoming investigations. There are several and all point to the notion that the Obama administration and progressives in the FBI sought to derail then-candidate Trump’s campaign so Hillary Clinton could win the White House.

It’s a conspiracy theory, one that seems very close to being pronounced a verified conspiracy. Every day more evidence emerges that the Democrats were playing dirty and potentially illegally when they tried to stop the election of Donald Trump. And as this truth comes to light, the Democrats and mainstream media are doing everything in their power to keep the conversation from heading in the proper direction of focusing on the real scandal surrounding the Russia investigation.

It may be months or even years before we know the whole truth. In fact, if President Trump is not reelected, we may never know the whole truth. That’s not the biggest reason to vote for him, but it’s quickly becoming a hot talking point among Independents who are sick of the corruption that seems to be pervasive in the Democratic Party as a whole.

Things haven’t been working out the way Democrats or mainstream media expected. In their wildest dreams they didn’t think they could get caught in so many lies, but as Graham Ledger pointed out, that’s exactly what’s happening.

Why Democrats will drag out impeachment for as long as they possibly can

Why Democrats will drag out impeachment for as long as they possibly can

Democrats have been playing a dangerous game of politicizing their efforts towards and against impeachment ever since they won control of the House of Representatives with the 2018 midterm elections. They have all the information they need in order to make a definitive decision about whether to impeach President Trump, but they continue to delay. Their reason is very plain: They want the news cycle to stay focused on their efforts until something else other than illegal immigration can come along and save them.

We’ve actually talked about this once or twice before, but it bears repeating and reframing as more the process evolves.

The crisis at our southern border has been untenable for several months as reports of increases in migrants and decreases in options make it crystal clear the policies of the Democrats and the failure of the Republicans to change them have encouraged the breach of our borders. The blame may fall on both sides’ failures over time, but the current stance of the GOP and the constant proclamations of the President put the full brunt of the responsibility on the left’s open borders policies.

Whether Americans support impeachment or not is actually irrelevant to the Democrats. They want things to stay in the middle on the issue, ebbing and flowing between support and opposition. The longer they can keep the media focused on their latest set of subpoenas or new voices calling for impeachment, the easier it is for them to ignore the border crisis. It’s their crisis. They own it. But they don’t want to pay politically in either direction for it.

They can’t do anything about it because doing so would be to admit the President was right. They can’t ignore it indefinitely because eventually it will be so big that mainstream media will be forced to move impeachment talks to page two while they focus on the crisis. Between the two options, Democrats are hoping to avoid the second by ignoring the first. They believe if they can keep media looking at the Mueller report and screaming about obstruction, something will eventually happen that’s even bigger than the border crisis. War with Iran? Economic collapse? Big mass shooting? Another abortion bill? Whatever it is, they’re using impeachment talk to fill in the gaps.

Democrats have to keep talking about impeachment and doing impeachment-related activities without actually impeaching. Once they pull the trigger, it’ll be over soon enough and Americans will look at other news like the border crisis.

Democrats imperiled whether they impeach or not

Democrats imperiled whether they impeach or not

The Democratic Party is stuck between a rock and a hard place. They have been refreshing talks about impeachment of President Trump for months as it ebbs and flows as a talking point. The threats have been constant, though often from different sources. Yet, they haven’t pulled the trigger. It seems like things are getting awkward.

The rock they face is the futile time- and resource-draining reality of it all. If the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives impeaches the President, it will then be tried in the Republican-controlled Senate where it will likely go nowhere. What makes it worse for them is that impeachment isn’t a popular action with voters; even many Democrats have voiced their concern that it would be a waste of time.

Meanwhile, the hard place they’re up against comes in the form of the radical progressive wing of the party that is growing in ranks and influence. They want the President impeached even if it has no chance of actually going anywhere. They’re pressuring their fellow Democrats and have been rallying their supporters around this goal. If Speaker of the House never brings it to the floor, she and her allies in the House will face the scorn of the likes of Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

They’re damned if they do and they’re damned if they don’t.

As for the President himself, he’s been done with all the investigations, implications, and attacks by the press. He just wants to be President and do his thing. But what he may not appreciate is that impeachment by the House will give him a huge campaign point. He can not only garner sympathy over the ceaseless attacks by Democrats, but he and the RNC can also use it to help them win back some of the seats they lost in 2018.

Personally, I’d love to see them impeach him. Assuming the get all of the Democrats and some Republicans on board, they’ll have the votes they’ll need to make the first leg of the impeachment process happen.

Unless something fresh comes to light that changes public sentiment, impeachment would be a poor move in the eyes of most Americans. But the radicals in the party will voice outrage if impeachment never happens. Such as silly group, the Democrats.
