Charlie Daniels: When You Go Stomping In the Swamp, Slime Has a Habit of Splashing Both Ways

I watched part of the Senate hearing with Attorney General William Barr yesterday, and instead of hearing the informed questions of supposedly public servants who are sworn to serve the interests and security of this nation and the people who put them in office, I was bombarded with useless, showboat inquiries that everybody in the room already knew the answers to.

There were would-be presidential candidates preening and posing for the television cameras asking inane, convoluted, disjointed questions, accomplishing absolutely nothing except for wasting the time of all involved.

Senator Mazie Hirono from Hawaii indulged in downright character assassination, her remarks acerbic and insulting, having no effect but to paint her as a misandrist – just a bitter old woman with absolutely nothing constructive to add to the conversation.

A few weeks ago, when the Democrats were certain that Mueller’s report would contain full-blown proof of Russian collusion, or at the very least – if not impeachable material – enough misadventures to cobble together an obstruction charge, Mueller was hailed as a paragon of virtue and to doubt his findings would be tantamount to heresy.

But now that incontrovertible proof is not forthcoming, and the grasping of straws and parsing of jurisprudence have taken over, Mueller has assumed the role of a shadowy agent whose intention leaves a lot to be doubted by those who once placed him on a pedestal.

He is more than likely on his way to becoming a pariah, a whipping boy, since the star the Democrats have hitched their wagon to has flamed out and the only thing left to do to save face is to kill the messengers – the plural denoting the mutual defaming of AG Barr, since he will be the one to investigate the misdeeds of the Clinton campaign, the false-flag obtaining of the Christopher Steele dossier. He will also investigate who paid for the dossier, who signed for it (multiple times), the anti-Trump bias of the FBI agents involved and Comey’s partisan handling of Clinton herself. Any distrustful aspersions they can cast now, I’m sure they view as thickening their armor.

But from what I understand, it’s going to take more than deflowering the Muller and Barr reputations to keep the wolves of reality away from the Democrat door as the names I’m hearing are major and plentiful and any thread that Barr pulls in the shadowy world of the Clinton machine could possibly unravel the whole house of cards.

Part of the Democrats problem is their accursed arrogance. They were so sure about Ms. Clinton’s rock-solid victory in 2016 that they neither prepared nor made suitable contingency for a defeat, which might expose their role in the events leading up to the FISA warrant abuses that led to the surveillance of the Trump campaign.

In fact, they were arrogant to the point of carelessness. Hillary’s destruction of emails that had been subpoenaed, perhaps even paying for a dossier put together by a foreign intelligence agent, a dossier that even he could never vouch for the accuracy of, and the biggest – and most in-your-face offense of all – the deep state using that dossier they knew to be inaccurate to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on an American citizen, not once, but multiple times.

Talk about obstruction of justice.

From the rumors being circulated in “the city of leaks,” the Inspector General’s report could well present some devastating information, and that should be out in a few weeks. From what I gather, Barr is ready to start assembling his own team of investigators to dig into the Hillary side of things, and where that will lead and how far up the food chain it will reach is anybody’s guess.

The crux of the situation is this, when you go stomping around in the swamp, the slime has a habit of splashing both ways, and you never know what you’re going to find under the next dead log. Swamp snakes don’t care who they bite – very possibly the guy who turned over the log.

So, the next few months should be interesting as both sides try to make as many points as they can before the 2020 election, and I’ve got a feeling that the throat cutting and ship jumping is just getting started.

The amount of “loyalty under duress” in Washington could probably be stored in a snuff box, and when plea bargains and CYA gets to a fever pitch, things could get hot and heavy, and some very swelled heads could roll.

Tighten your cinch, America. This ‘un is just about to come out of the chute.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
