We’re all waiting for a verdict in the Sussmann trial, the big question being: Is it possible to convict a Dem in DC? BREAKING: NOT GUILTY

 Mark Wauck reported:

But now on to the news of the day. We’re all waiting for a verdict in the Sussmann trial, the big question being: Is it possible to convict a Dem in DC?

BREAKING: NOT GUILTY. So, that question has been answered—to not many people’s surprise, given the outrageous jury makeup. Jonathan Turley comments:

Sussmann was found not guilty. Many of us viewed the evidence as overwhelming. Yet, the jury either believed he did not lie or that the lie was not material.

Below is my column in The Hill on the Sussmann trial and the striking comparisons with prior prosecutions of Trump officials like Michael Flynn. The court has limited the evidence available to the…

...The judge imposed limitations on the scope of evidence and examinations in the case. Those orders prevent prosecutors from showing more about the development of this false claim and the role of the campaign.

...The Durham team was hit with limiting court orders and a jury that was hardly ideal. The limitations on this trial only reinforces the need for a Special Counsel report.

What else is there to say?

We’re also waiting for SCOTUS decisions on abortion and gun laws.

In the meantime, the political buzz is about the total disarray of the Zhou regime—something pretty much the whole world has been aware of from day one. The buzz for today was caused by an NBC article that runs along the lines that Red State sketches out:

Civil War Explodes in the White House as the Rush to Absolve Joe Biden of All His Failures Commences

For well over a year, the open civil war within the Democratic Party has been impossible to dismiss. There have been direct conflicts between the progressive caucus and the so-called “moderates” within the party, with the latter desperately trying to hang on in their swing districts.

Yeah, no sh*t. And as if open civil war within the Dem party weren’t great enough, Nan Pelosi’s husband was—against all odds, and after a four hour delay—arrested for over imbibing his own product, driving through a stop sign and hitting another car in the oncoming lane. While driving a non-electric vehicle, a Porsche no less.

That hasn’t slowed down Nan’s devoutly Catholic war on anti-abortion bishes. Gotta luv the intro to Raymond Arroyo’s explanation—the girl says, Raymond, a lot of people don’t understand how things work in the Catholic church. Another no sh*t moment! I call that the Conciliar church, btw, but your preferences may vary. One way or another, I doubt Nan’s holy war will gain any more traction than other Dem holy wars—like, on guns, on people who disagree with them, etc.

But back to the White House!

The link above provides the standard take—that it’s all rather baffling and that nobody is more baffled about it all than Zhou himself. But Joe Cunningham, also at Red State, has dredged up an old Politico that puts a bit of spin on things that’s more explanatory. The question as Cunningham frames it is:

Who Really Is the President?

And he turns to Politico to provide what seems to be a cogent answer. Given that personnel is policy, it follows out that the person appointing people to policy decision making positions in the Zhou regime must be the real president. And, according to Politico, that person is Liz Warren.

Here’s the situation that we’re all aware of:

In its detailed report, NBC News paints a picture of a President who has little to no control over the office and a staff dead set on making sure its agenda is the President’s focus rather than the other way around.

As my colleague Bonchie mentioned earlier this morning, part of the news report seems fixated on absolving Biden of the mistakes of his administration. However, it could be that something much more nefarious is afoot. It’s not that Biden isn’t at fault, but that Biden isn’t in control of his own policies, having shopped most of the work out to staffers from among the far left.

And here’s the explanation:

If Biden is not in control of his administration, and if his Chief of Staff is incapable of keeping things together, then who is actually in charge?

As it turns out, POLITICO may have given us that answer back in March.

Warren’s expanding network in the upper echelons of the administration includes protégés who helped execute her aggressive oversight of big banks and other corporations as well as friends who share her views of the risks looming on Wall Street. But it goes beyond finance, covering pivotal posts at the Department of Education and even the National Security Council.

“The Warren recruits mark a victory for the progressive movement, which has supported her years long “personnel is policy” campaign to chip away at the dominance of corporate insiders in setting policy for Democrats. Those who took on the fight with Warren say they’re pleasantly surprised it has produced so many results under Biden, reflecting a new emphasis on inequality and challenging corporate power. Industry lobbyists, in turn, warn that banks, private equity firms and consumer lenders should pay close attention.

The Biden administration has basically contracted its staffing out to Elizabeth Warren (and, very likely, other far-left politicians). As a result, a lot of policies Elizabeth Warren and the gang love are actually getting pushed by this administration.

What happened is that Biden had to make concessions to the left when he came into office to try and prevent a civil war from breaking out within his own party. So, his team has been allowing Warren staffers to come over and take pivotal roles in the administration. It’s probably not just Warren, either, but that’s the one group of far-left acolytes we know through reports have come aboard.

The Politico article paints a picture of Warren and her gang challenging “corporate power” and “industry lobbyists” but, while I find the general explanation—Zhou had to concede personnel decisions, and therefore policy decisions, to the far Left—the idea that this amounts to a challenge to “corporate power” seems more of a figment of Politico’s and Warren’s imagination. I mean, Pfizer, Moderna? Moreover, I just don’t see most of the failures that are reflected in Zhou’s abysmal approval ratings—crime, border security, inflation, supply chains, craziness in schools and pretty much everywhere, and so forth—resulting from the regime getting tough on corporate bigwigs.

Perhaps getting tough on corporations was the original idea, maybe Warren thought that was what she was doing. But, if so, it appears that everything has gotten totally out of hand because the totally woke have taken over the levers of government. Those are the people on the warpath (haha! Fauxcahontas!) against normals, which is the overriding reality of America today. Corporate welfare seems largely unaffected, if affected at all—just look at corporate bottom lines.

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination." [https://mobile.twitter.com/RWMaloneMD/status/1462194727407730693]   Moreover, he goes even further and is quoting Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò's call for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance:   Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance “under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,” to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order." youtube.com Abp.
