Burn Down the DOJ and Start Over
[Town Hall] - I want you to tell me, without bursting into laughter, that I am still supposed to respect our federal law enforcement institutions. I keep hearing about these wonderful keepers of norms and rules and stuff deserve our awe, and then I see the tawdry, self-serving and scummy way they operate, and gee ‐ there’s a disconnect. A big one. If the price of our society is submitting to these corrupt and incompetent people of garbage, well, then I say burn it all down.

That’s the only way to save it: to level it and start over.

Let’s review how our guardians of justice have covered themselves in glory in recent days. And by "glory," I mean "Scat Francisco sidewalk sauce."

The scumbag Democrat donors remaining in the Mueller lynch mob decided that Roger Stone, an absolutely harmless gadfly whose real crime was being aligned with Donald Trump and therefore with you, should be sent away for seven to nine years for "crimes" that the Department of Injustice promptly gave a pass on to the loathsome Andrew McCabe. This is the same institution that also gave a pass to Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, Comey the Looming Doofus, and those fugly FBI sexting twins.

...I like Bill Barr. I think he wants to do the right thing. But he needs to spare us the clich├ęs about the hard-working and honest DOJ staff because that’s not what we see. I trust Barr, but I trust my eyes more, and all I see issuing from his Department is a flow of raw sewage. And don’t tell me "But they convicted Avenatti!" because Avenatti was not a friend to the establishment. He was a threat, an uppity outsider who smarmed his way into position to potentially cut in the line for power. Yeah, the Democrats were totally broken up for him to be taken out.

...Let Barr do his thing. Let Durham do his. I’m not going to Lucy and the football myself into believing that either one is definitely going to serve up the justice upon the Deep State derps that is the minimal requirement for beginning to rebuild the trust in federal law enforcement these hacks flushed away, but who knows? They might do something. In the meantime, we simply need to treat federal law enforcement as what it is: deeply corrupt and utterly untrustworthy.

The other thing is that the president needs to pardon Roger Stone, Mike Flynn, and the others caught up in the scummy attempt to criminalize dissent. And he should commute Paul Manafort’s sentence to time served. Time to use our power to do justice for those who are victims of injustice.

See, the stakes are high. A dual-track justice system is unsustainable in a free country. True, the Democrats behind these injustices don’t want a free country at all, but we do. If we tolerate these injustices, we won’t have one, and the bad guys are not going to like what happens next. This is how they got Trump. They have only gotten worse. Okay, well, more of this is how you get Caesar.

#1 Basically do to it what we did to Germany and Japan.

#2 What is needed is unfairness, the other way round. Absolute, crushing power in Republican hands; to turn back the tide with force. And liberal tears.

All trouble follows when in this age of mercenary activism and adamant corruption, genuinely nationalist leaders try to play nice.

#3 After the first 10 words, I could tell it was another Kurt rant-gem

Snark aside, this is dead-on correct.

And deadly serious. If DoJ is not razed and rebuilt anew, it is very unlikely that we will ever get our democratic Republic back.

This has to be OrangeMan's top priority for his 2nd term. Without this achievement, all other policies will be undermined or thwarted altogether.

#5 It cannot stop with the DOJ. Every institution will need to be razed. State, Defense and especially the Intelligence agencies.

Correct.

Not only for the sake of real social justice, but because so much damage has been done by the left that it's no longer enough to stand athwart history saying "Stop!".

We have to go in reverse -- way in reverse.

And the left needs to learn a lesson that it won't forget for generations.


Frankly "conservatism" is wholly inadequate for what needs to be done.

#7 And the left needs to learn a lesson that it won't forget for generations.

The Left can't learn from experience - that's why they're the Left: easy solutions to difficult problems.

#8 Well, so long as they're taught the lesson.

If it doesn't take -- teach it again and again and again.
