Brain-Damaged Democrats in the News

Posted on | February 9, 2023 | 1 Comment

Some readers may have forgotten that, when Donald Trump was president, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a habit of ranting about the importance of impeaching him for — wait for it — alleged obstruction of justice in regard to the investigation of “Russian collusion.” As everyone with a functional brain has long since realized, there never was any such “collusion” (i.e., there was no crime committed by Trump regarding Russia) so that whatever he did as president in regard to the two-year-long investigation of the (non-existent) “collusion,” his actions could not plausibly be construed as obstruction of justice. After all, if there was no crime, how was justice obstructed? Insofar as there was any genuine wrongdoing in regard to Russia, it was perpetrated by Hillary Clinton’s campaign (and their allies in the FBI) in turning the Steele dossier into the pretext of a bogus smear against Trump.

“Failure to impeach now is neglect of due process,” AOC declared on Twitter in May 2019, after the Mueller Report had cleared Trump of wrongdoing in the “Russian collusion” hoax. Now that the investigative shoe is on the other foot, so to speak, AOC is singing a new tune:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed the House Oversight Committee’s hearing on Twitter’s decision to repress the Hunter Biden laptop story in the fall of 2020 and called the story “half-fake.”
“We could be talking about the cost of prescription drugs, abortion rights, civil rights, voting rights, but instead we’re talking about Hunter Biden’s half fake laptop story. I mean, this is an embarrassment, but I’ll go into it,” she said during the hearing.
The Democratic congresswoman also said the hearing was a waste of time and public resources. . . .
“The newspaper wasn’t sharing what it obtained. New York Post had this alleged information and was trying to publish it without any corroboration, without any backup information, they were trying to publish it to Twitter. Twitter did not let them, and now they were upset. . . .”
She said GOP political operatives wanted the ability to “do it again.”
“They want the ability to do it again. They want the ability to inject this again. So they’ve dragged a social media platform here in Congress, their weaponizing the use of this committee so that they can do it again. A whole hearing about a 24-hour hiccup in a right-wing political operation,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

At any point during the Trump administration, did she call the “Russian collusion” narrative “fake”? Did she call it “a left-wing political operation”? Because that’s what it was, you know. But of course, AOC believed all that buncombe, whereas the Hunter Biden laptop — which is very real — she calls “half-fake.” And at a time when we are on the brink of war over Ukraine, isn’t it kind of relevant that contents of Hunter’s laptop shed light on the Biden family’s corrupt influence-peddling in Ukraine? Isn’t it possible that, at some point, Joe Biden has done something in regard to this that could be construed as “obstruction of justice,” and thus grounds for impeachment? But this possibility never seems to have occurred to the feeble-minded congresswoman known to her old friends in Westchester County as Sandy Cortez.

Oh, and speaking of brain-damaged Democrats:

John Fetterman is probably still smarter than AOC, despite the fact that a stroke has destroyed most of his cognitive capacity.
