Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 04, 2022

The GOP has jumped to defend Donald J. Trump by releasing a "report" on the FBI and DOJ. Trump supporting "whistleblowers" disheartened with the return to law and order within the DOJ (formerly politicized by Bill Barr to unprecedented levels) are used throughout the report to bolster the GOP's contentions and to defend the former corrupt and twice impeached President. The report cries out in classic right-wing victimhood about how everyone's against the poor, poor conservatives. The report bolsters the idea that Republicans are tiny worthless victims that have no control over their own lives and are perpetually being attacked by "woke" forces and "libruls."

The Trumpites will defund the FBI in large part to let the Russians in.

"The Trumpites will defund the FBI in large part to let the Russians in."

This makes me wonder what the Republican party in general has to hide that they would take such a tactic. I don't think it's just to defend Trump.

This is what Christian nationalism looks like:

The next morning at LifeGate church in Elizabethtown, Pastor Pete Ogilvie used part of his sermon to talk about the Great ReAwakening conference. "It was like drinking water from a firehose, the release of all the information and things " I couldn't take it all in," he said.

"These are the things that we come against in the name of Jesus, that we wage war with, and these are the things that we will declare victory over today!" Ogilvie declared. On the wall behind him, a projector displayed a long list of the church's enemies:

"Mail-in Ballots, Dominion Machines, Election Day lasting longer than a week, Stolen elections, An illegitimate Administration in the WH ... .Human-Trafficking, Fentynol flooding our country, opioid addiction rampant, sexual immorality being the standard, Greed, Satanic Worship ... Doctrines of demons, Critical Race Theory in our schools, Porn in our libraries, Boys competing in girl's sports, pronoun protocols, Liberal media lies and canceling the conservative voices ... "

Ogilive clicked through to the next slide:

"Medical Tyranny, Mask mandates, Vaccination Mandates, Covid Testing ... Clause Schwab, George Soros, Fauci, Bill Gates, Hunter Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Tom Wolf, Richard Levine, Gerry Nadler, the Jan. 6 Committee, Liz Cheney, The rest of the swamp in Both Parties, and Both Houses of Congress and the Senate ... ."

Then he began to pray.

"Lord, we believe that all these enemies of Your Word will fall, all your enemies will cower," Ogilive said.

Seriously?:

1,000 of the 1,050 pages are copies of letters Rs have sent to the Biden administration-- including 94 copies of the same five page letter to all US attorneys.

Thanks Gal. What a post!

What a fraud the Republicans are. In every aspect. Complete fraud.

Here's the actual report: republicans-judiciary.house.gov
It's a hyperventilating compilation of nonsense and edited BS. For instance:

"On the morning of August 10, 2022, FBI agents seized the cell phone of Representative Scott Perry while he was traveling with his family.193 Reports indicate that the FBI's action is related to a joint investigation conducted by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Justice Department.194 Here, too, like the FBI's raid of President Trump's residence, the use of such an aggressive law-enforcement tactic against a prominent political opponent of the Biden Administration raises grave concerns about the FBI's politicization."

No mention of the FACT that Scott Perry was subpoenaed, refused to comply, refused to testify, refused repeated legal requests and law enforcement enforced legal actions. But he's a Republican so forget all he was involved in. It's not because he's guilty as hell.

And for good measure, the GOP goes out of its way to kiss Trump's ass.

Just think how much longer it would be if they upped the margins and triple spaced it, like in high school!

470 pages of the same thing, over and over, literally.

This is really hilarious if you read it. Just read the Table of Contents and the page number it stops at, then look at pages 60 on.
