Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves

| Opinion | April 25, 2019

After hearing Attorney General Barr’s commentary on the release of the Mueller report and the leftist Democrat commentary, this hit song by Cher began running around in my mind, with the bracketed inclusions.

“Gypsies, tramps, and thieves (Adam Schiff, never-Trumpers and democratic socialists)
We’d hear it from the people of the town (MAGA people)
They’d call us Gypsies, tramps, and thieves
But every night all the men (lobbyists, George Soros, donors) would come around
And lay their money down”

The vile attacks on Attorney General Barr and the president are consistent with con artists when confronted with their deception. They inevitably respond with anger, threats, intimidation and ad-hominem personal attacks. CNN and MSNBC wasted no time on attacking the messenger while ignoring the facts. Further examples of the leftists’ sociopathic behavior will be continually demonstrated by their inability to let go of their anti-Trump delusions. They will never acknowledge the exoneration of the Trump administration and campaign by Mueller regarding collusion with the Russians.

Rep. Nadler’s press conference featured an attack on the messenger. He focused on the special counsel, who exonerated the president of obstruction of justice, ignoring that Mueller did not accuse or charge the president with obstruction of justice. Do remember that Mueller and Comey were best buds, and the team of investigators was loaded with Clinton supporters and probable Trump-haters? What happened to the prosecutor’s burden of proof requirement? Do we really wish to engage in the impeachment of the outraged president because of questionable obstruction of justice accusations? He was proven innocent of colluding with the Russians! This grasping at straws is politics at its very worst.

Adam Schiff viewed the special counsel’s report not only as vindication of obstruction of justice, but viewed it as proof of Trump colluding with the Russians. As I read the report, the Russians repeatedly attempted to collude with Trump’s people. However, their approaches were always (yes, always) rejected. Oh, yes – unlike Schiff, where recorded contacts with Russians who promised damaging information on Trump have been repeatedly broadcast. The pot was calling the kettle black, even though the kettle was shiny copper.


These leftist-progressive democrats have shown themselves incapable of recognizing integrity when they see it. For example, they still cling to the false charges against Justice Kavanaugh.
President Trump was angry about being falsely charged by Democrats and the media. Internally, he responded with anger, speaking out at his attackers and those who did not defend him. However, despite his justified rage, actions of obstruction never happened. Cooperation with Mueller was overwhelming.

The bottom line is this: For over two years, never-Trumpers repeatedly accused the president of being an agent of the Russians. They accused him of being a traitor. They lied, they lied, and they lied again. They refuse to accept the decisions made by prosecutorial experts who disliked Trump. Now they are angry with the President for attempting to defend himself. The scandal is theirs. They are amoral. Malum stultus asinae. Incivilis!
