I recently wrote a piece for the Daily Caller addressing the fact that the COVID-19 is an American public health crisis, not a political one. And, during this episode I have seen, in action, Rahm Emanuel’s famed quote, “never let a good crisis go to waste.” So, here we are again, after the failed episodes called the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax, followed by the Ukrainian impeachment inquisition on the verge of a new round of “stuck on stupid” from the Democrat (Socialist) Party.
As reported by Fox News:
“House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who a little over two months ago led Democrats’ prosecution in President Trump’s impeachment trial following an extensive investigation, is working to launch a new review concerning the administration’s actions — this time calling for a nonpartisan commission on the government’s coronavirus response.
Schiff, D-Calif., after repeatedly criticizing the president’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, said Wednesday he would work to create a panel to review the government’s actions and readiness.
“After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes,” Schiff tweeted.
“Once we’ve recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic,” he continued. “I’m working on a bill to do that.”
Schiff swiftly faced criticism for the move, with Intelligence Committee Ranking Republican Rep. Devin Nunes accusing him of a “dumb stunt.”
“His Russia collusion hoax failed, his Ukraine scam failed, and his efforts to cover up FISA abuse failed,” Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox News on Wednesday. “So, Schiff is launching yet another dumb stunt to justify his never-ending media relations operation.”
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, also said in a statement: “The same people who delayed the Coronavirus relief bill because they demanded giveaways for special interests and millions for the Kennedy Center now want to create a commission to attack the Trump Administration’s response? Give me a break. And the person who is leading this effort is Adam Schiff — the same Adam Schiff who released the phone records of the President’s personal attorney, a journalist, and a sitting Member of Congress. We should focus on stopping the virus, not politicizing the crisis.”
The intelligence committee chairman has led multiple Trump-focused probes, including the House impeachment inquiry and investigations into whether members of the president’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election, the president’s financial transactions, and more.”
Hmm, lemme explain something to Chairman Schiff. After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we went after the perpetrators, the enemy. American came together, united for one cause, and that was victory: to bring about the defeat of those who inflicted such terror. Sure, you can sit around and say that we conducted commissions. In the military, we call those “After Action Reports.” Even after a combat engagement, there is a debriefing, a sharing of intelligence for the purpose of gathering best practices, lessons learned. What we do not do is come together to have a blame session!
Chairman Schiff, you are the embodiment of what we call “a special kind of stupid.” You are the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and on the day that the intelligence community releases confirmed information about Chinese lies and deception regarding the Wuhan Chinese coronavirus, you announce your desire to investigate the President’s response.
Let’s put that into context, sir, since you want to use Pearl Harbor and 911. You, sir, would have been the village idiot calling for an investigation into the Doolittle Raid. After all, that was President Roosevelt’s retaliatory response to Pearl Harbor. You would have blamed Roosevelt for not seeing the treachery of the Japanese at that time. As well, I would presume that you would have investigated President Bush for immediately responding with brave US Army Special Forces teams to coordinate airstrikes against the Taliban and Al Qaeda. That is just how stupid you appear to be!
Here we are fully knowing that this COVID-19 emanated from China, in a province with a bio-medical laboratory facility and you do not think hearings should be held about that? How about the strange occurrence of the Harvard professor who was arrested and was sharing biological information with two Chinese students, one who was not even a student, but rather a member of the Chinese Army? Why not investigate any relationship between Iran and Italy being hit hard, or even a correlation between our major population centers being hit so hard, or how COVID-19 became widespread on a US Navy aircraft carrier?Maybe if you members of the Party of the Jackass had not been traipsing down the road of impeachment, you would have been paying more attention to this coronavirus issue. I think we should have a hearing on you and your incompetence. Click To Tweet
Nah, you would rather waste more American taxpayer dollars on shameful partisan political inquisitions, all over again. Guess what? Maybe if you members of the Party of the Jackass had not been traipsing down the road of impeachment, you would have been paying more attention to this coronavirus issue. I think we should have a hearing on you and your incompetence.
Yeah, I am just a tad bit pissed off. We, the American people, are being killed by an invisible virus. We are losing our jobs. We are losing our way of life. We are being driven into a frenzy of panic, paranoia, and hysteria, while you, sir, want to have an investigation of President Trump? Really, I should say, another investigation?
Keep it up. This fool’s errand will guarantee President Trump’s victory in November. Why, you ask? Because when the enemy was silently at our door, like the death angel of biblical history, you focused on yourself, and your political advantage. Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), I find you utterly disgusting, despicable, and truly un-American.
