Democrats are holding hearings on integrity, starring….Eric Holder. Eric Holder is an excellent choice because he symbolizes a lack of ethics. He was the first sitting cabinet member to be held in contempt of congress. The vote in the house was 255 – 67. More than 100 Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, stormed out of the Capitol, and refused to vote. After all, Democrats only vote against Republicans. That is their highest moral value. But 17 Democrats bravely stayed behind and gave the thumbs up to the contempt vote.
Here is how Holder responded:
“Today’s vote is the regrettable culmination of what became a misguided – and politically motivated – investigation during an election year,” Holder said in his statement. “By advancing it over the past year and a half, Congressman Issa and others have focused on politics over public safety. Instead of trying to correct the problems that led to a series of flawed law enforcement operations, and instead of helping us find ways to better protect the brave law enforcement officers, like Agent Brian Terry, who keep us safe – they have led us to this unnecessary and unwarranted outcome.”
He left out the part about when he deliberately lied during his testimony before congress to cover up the failures of the Obama administration. Sound familiar?
This, of course, is the same congress now asking people to testify on why it is so cool to let biological males compete in girl’s and women’s sports. This is based on the real science, where it is not the parts you were born with or even the parts you had surgically added or removed, it is only how you feel about yourself.
These are the same people who push identity politics every day, and then wonder why more people are being assaulted because of their identity. Duh! When the Democratic Party preaches every day that we should judge people primarily because of things like race and gender, why would they be surprised when others judge people primarily because of things like race and gender. Who could predict something like that?
In the meantime, without a hint of irony, Nancy Pelosi is seriously considering overruling the certified vote for a congressional representative from Iowa because she doesn’t like the outcome. And, oh by the way, she really needs that vote.
These are all dumb things. They are things destined for the scrap heap of history. So why is this even being done? Some would assume that mere incompetence is a satisfactory explanation. But, at least to me, these appear to be acts of desperation. They want to change the subject from anything other than Joe Biden and his brilliant job performance.
This reminds me of the guy who admitted to an extramarital affair, because he desperately needed an alibi for a murder. Sometimes, people put themselves into situations where there are only really bad options.
