It ain't over til it's over

    As Lawrence Peter Berra said about this time in 1973: “It ain't over till it's over.”

    I have been thoroughly disgusted with the mainstream media (MM) since watching them fawn over #44 and then his heir-apparent during the run-up to the 2016 election. The overwhelming choice of the MM failed to break the glass ceiling and there wasn't a dry eye on the sets as a thought-to-be win turned out to be a victory for mainstream America.

    Every night I watch a cross-section of prime time news coverage only to have to return to Fox to hear both sides. Tonight was a perfect example.

    David Muir, ABC Nightly News anchor, reported that President Trump had had a telephone call with the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and asked him to assist AG Bill Barr relative to determining the origins of the Mueller-Weissmann Russia probe. Cecelia Vega, Sr. White House Correspondent for ABC, then reported that AG Barr and other Justice Department officials have been in Italy looking into the origins of the Russia probe. Vega said: “Look, it's nearly three years after this election. This is something President Trump is still fixated on. Dave (Muir), the Democrats are likely to be enraged by this. They will use this as an example of President Trump using his office to advance his personal political gain.”

    “It's been nearly three years.” No Cecilia! It has been less than six months since the M-W Report and the Democrats, “without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion,” have yet to realize Donald Trump IS President of the United States. As the Presidential Oath of Office that #45 took reads: “. . . I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    Donald Trump was given that opportunity by mainstream America. Investigating the Australian, Italian, UK and Ukrainian origins of the Russian probe, points M-W avoided, is within the president's lawful “Ability” as chief executive. It just happens to be that the Bidens wind up right in the middle in the Ukraine not to mention China. The Supreme Court will side with executive responsibilities over feigned House oversight.
