During the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany Black September, a Palestinian terrorist group took eleven Israel Olympic team members hostage and then later killed them.
Jim McKay, a sports broadcaster, was on the air fourteen hours. He reported on the situation, including the rescue attempt. When that rescue failed, completely, McKay said the following:
“When I was a kid my father used to say “Our greatest hopes and our worst fears are seldom realized.” Our worst fears have been realized tonight. They have now said there were 11 hostages; two were killed in their rooms yesterday morning, nine were killed at the airport tonight. They’re all gone.”
Today, the Mueller hearings resulted in a worst case scenario for Democrats. Mueller was a pathetic witness when it became apparent that he literally did not know what was in his own report. He looked frail and defensive. It became clear, to people on both sides of the aisle, that Mueller did not manage the investigation and he probably didn’t write the report. It really doesn’t get any worse than this. Much was promised, less than nothing was delivered.
The odds of impeachment just dropped from zero, to less than zero. On the other hand, there were times when Republicans absolutely hammered Mueller. John Ratcliffe was extremely strong in showing that Mueller’s statement that he could not exonerate Trump regarding obstruction is absurd and not supported by DOJ policies and procedures. John Ratcliffe is a former U.S. Attorney and the American public got a chance to see a real prosecutor in action.
But the strongest condemnation of Mueller came from Tom McClintock. This was so bad that even the Sacramento Bee noticed and published this in a Capital Alert. When McClintock gets positive press from the Sacramento Bee, it is a clear sign of end times.
“For example … you have left the clear impression throughout the country, through your report, that it was the Russian government behind the troll farms,” said McClintock, who represents California’s 4th congressional district. “And yet when you’re called upon to provide actual evidence in court, you fail to do so.”
The Sac Bee made a feeble attempt to spin down the damage, but the report is still devastating for Mueller and the entire Russian Collusion myth. If you get this kind of report from one of the most liberal newspapers in the country, this was an unmitigated disaster.
This is beyond bad. For over two years and Democrats have been screaming Mueller, Mueller, Mueller, Russia, Russia Russia. Just wait until Mueller finishes his report. The legal noose is closing in on Trump and Happy Days are just around the corner. Many people on the left and most of the news anchors on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and ABC etc. bought this hook, line and sinker. So did a high percentage of supposedly objected newspaper editors. All of them have already paid a heavy price for this stupidity. Ratings are dropping like a stone and some newspapers are literally gone.
Now we learn that the Mueller Report, like the Kings wardrobe, was not manufactured out of thin cloth, it was manufactured out of no cloth at all. What we saw today was nothing less than an unprecedented and embarrassing display of public nudity. No one on either side of the aisle was impressed. At best, people were reduced to making excuses for Mueller. Wow!
