The Post made a cameo appearance on “Morning Joe” Monday, to illustrate a typical Democratic talking point: deflection.
“If you want to know the future of the Republican Party . . . take a look at the cover of [the] New York Post,” said contributor Mike Barnicle, holding up a copy of our “EYES ON THE SPIES” front page.
“If you’re out there worried about your heating oil bill, your grocery bill or the status of your kids in school, forget about that because we have to get to the bottom of the Hunter Biden story; we have to bring in Clapper and Brennan and find out why they lied.”
To which the whole panel had a hearty laugh.
Allow us to retort, particularly to former Republican Rep. Joe Scarborough, who should know better:
- Democrats and the media love to treat investigations into past actions by liberals as “old news” and a “waste of time.” They laughed off the John Durham investigation, despite the fact that both Russiagate and the spy letter show our national-intelligence apparatus being weaponized for political purposes. Why Twitter decided to block the Hunter Biden stories, why the FBI warned about a “hacked” laptop they knew wasn’t hacked (because they had it in their possession), how “experts” manipulated the media — these all need to be examined under oath.
- Republicans can walk and chew gum at the same time, pursuing investigations into President Joe Biden at the same time they handle legislation. Or are you admitting the Jan. 6 Hearings rendered the Democrats useless?
- To that point, what have the Democrats — who controlled all the levers of government for two years — done to fix your heating oil bill or your grocery bill?
- To that point, we can tell you exactly what they did: They made it worse. Which is why a Republican-controlled House is so important, and why it requires little effort on the part of the GOP: Voting “no.”
Out-of-control spending in the “rescue” act accounts for half of our inflation rate, an American Enterprise Institute study found. Republicans just need to vote no on massive spending. Vote no on incentives not to work. Vote no on tax increases. And guess what? The economy will get better!
Republicans can both make inflation better and get answers on how Twitter, James Clapper, John Brennan and others meddled in our elections. So laugh it up now; you won’t be laughing later.
