Have we had enough rectal sunsine yet? Mollie Hemingway offers a relatively calm depiction of the kidney-load down the back that the Deep State would have us believe is merely a summer drizzle.

Oh, did I say “Deep State”? We’ve still got those who are incapable of seeing the forest for the trees:

Erickson summarizes precisely the sort of obedient gaze-averting that the IG desires. Andrew McCarthy helpfully breaks this down for us:

In every criminal trial, the defense lawyer tries to sow reasonable doubt by depicting every allegation, every factual transaction, as if it stood alone. In a drug case, if the defendant was photographed delivering a brown paper bag on Wednesday, the lawyer argues, “Well, we don’t have X-ray vision, how do we really know there was heroin in the bag?” The jurors are urged that when they consider what happened Wednesday, there is only Wednesday; they must put out of their minds that text from Tuesday, when the defendant told his girlfriend, “I always deliver the ‘product’ in paper bags.”

Fortunately, the judge ends up explaining to the jury that, down here on Planet Earth, common sense applies. In our everyday lives, we don’t look at related events in isolation; we view them in conjunction because they read on each other.

We are to adjured to conspire with Michael Horowitz that 568 pages of sentences detailing deep-seated bias against Trump did not amount to a conspiracy against Trump. In much the same way we, back at Faber College, pounded beer all night without ever getting legally drunk.Didn’t we? I mean, if we were drunk, such news would be as shocking as the discovery that Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin got married in July, 2010.

Andrew Klavan summarizes the FBI response well:

Current Director Christopher Wray responded to the IG’s report at a press conference and promised there’d be consequences for bad behavior. But he also said, “nothing in this report impugns the integrity of our workforce as a whole or the FBI as an institution.” Like hell it doesn’t. What the report describes is a morally bankrupt clown show, and the fact that Wray won’t admit that means the show goes on.

I’m ready for a full purge of all of these senior FBI, DOJ, CIA, IRS, TLA, AFU, KMA, ETC pencil necks who think themselves some sort of petty arisocratic clique that calls the shots in this country (i.e. the Deep State whose shoes Erickson apparently prefers to shine).

This is not even about Trump, other than his incidental proximity in exposing this cancerous. This is about “Democracy Dies in Deep State Darkness”. This is Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy pointing Checkov’s Gun at our heads. I certainly hope all of these malevolent Clinton boot-lickers repent, but such a change of heart is irrelevant to the point that they cannot ever be wielding U.S. Government power again, ever, if we care about our liberties.
