The Colbert Insurrection

What a great comedy skit! From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 06.17.22, Twitchy: Colbert Show Crew Arrested For Trespass In House Office Building. A pretty decent round up. Fox, US Capitol Police arrest Stephen Colbert staffers at House office building, charged with illegal entry. John Sexton at Haut Hair, Employees of Stephen Colbert's Late Show arrested in the House office building last night. Twitchy again, Report: Dem Reps. Adam Schiff and Jake Auchincloss linked to Colbert-gate

and LOCK THEM UP: Multiple people associated with Colbert’s show arrested for unlawful entry of a House office building; Update: Adam Schiff involved?. Sundance at CTH, Worse Than Watergate, Seven Members of Steven Colbert Television Crew Arrested Breaking Into Congressional Offices in DC Capitol. Ace, Staffers for the "Late Show With Steven Colbert" Arrested Breaking Into Congressional Buildings At Night.  
If you're worried about serious criminal action against people illegally "parading" on Congressional property, don't be. That's a made-up charge for conservatives only.

The left has been allowed to illegally enter and protest inside congresional buildings for decades and have never been prosecuted for doing so.

The law does not protect us. What is that saying the left is fond of? Oh yes: Riots are the voice of the unheard.

We're unheard, aren't we?
This is, of course, the same charge as many of the J6 "insurrectionists" who walked past obliging Capitol police and wandered in the building, who have been, in many cases, charged with felonies and held without bail for over a year. The TV crew, was, of course, booked and released. Liberal privilege in action.

Josh Hammer at Am Spec, Democrats’ Selective Outrage Over ‘Insurrections’ "Full of sound and fury on Jan. 6, but crickets on Kavanaugh." Breitbart, WATCH: January 6 Witness Calls Out Jamie Raskin for Objecting to 2016 Election. Did Raskin open the door for Trump? It sure looks like it. 

Thomas isn’t an elected official, she wasn’t running for office or working for the administration, nor was she imbued with supernatural powers that could compel anyone to act against their will or the Constitution. As a private citizen she was petitioning officials to engage in the political act of challenging election results—something Democrats regularly do. 

 From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 06.16.22 Twitchy: Glenn Greenwald Gives An Appreciation Of Jen Rubin’s Live Tweeting Of The J6 Show Trial. Never-Trumper AB Stoddard at RCP, GOP Candidates Know Jan. 6 Is Not Just Trump’s Problem. Matt Vespa at Town Hall thinks Jim Jordan Shreds the January 6 Committee Hearings With One Tweet Rep. Jim Jordan@Jim_Jordan "Real America doesn’t care about the January 6th Committee. Gas is over $5 per gallon!" At ET, ‘I Demand Equal Time’: Trump Slams ‘Highly Partisan’ Jan. 6 Hearings. As Margot Cleveland at Da Fed observes Jan. 6 Committee Ignores Clear Evidence Of Mass Illegal Voting, Systematically Broken Election Laws. At WaEx, Navarro pleads not guilty to contempt of Congress charges. At Monster Hunter Nation, Larry’s Twitter posts on the Jan 6 commission.

AllahPundit at Haut Hair whines "You're no Thomas Jefferson": Trump goes after the "human conveyor belt," Mike Pence. WaPoo not happy either, Trump hits Pence over Jan. 6 role as possible GOP 2024 hopefuls gather. AllahPundit is also miffed that CNN reports Liz Cheney has a 10% chance of being reelected according to prediction markets. She made her bed.

Insty, WELL, GOOD: Man Who Allegedly Tried to Kill Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh Indicted, Faces Life in Prison.  Rick Moran at PJ Media asks (rhetorically), Why Did 27 Democrats Vote Against Security for Supreme Court Justices? "The real reason is that they want the justices exposed to the threat of violence."

At Da Wire, FBI Investigating Attacks On Pro-Life Centers, Organizations. Really, will they put the kind of effort into it that they put into J6? From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 06.16.22, Da Tech Guy: I’m Old Enough To Remember When Merrick Garland Was Called A “Moderate”. The redoubtable Julie Kelly at Am Great wonders Why Is Merrick Garland Smiling? "The unprecedented collaboration between the Justice Department and Congress to target political foes of the regime endangers the rights of hundreds of Trump-supporting Americans." 

To some degree, the media is correct about the attorney general’s detachment. Garland is to the Justice Department what Joe Biden is to the White House—a lost old man installed in office to give a grandfatherly-like disguise to the malicious puppet masters in control of his teleprompter.

 Eddie Scarry at Da Fed notes The ‘White Nationalists’ Arrested At The Idaho Pride Event Were The Least Armed And Dangerous People That Day "This is an important story. Not because “white nationalists” are involved. But because for curious reasons, the FBI is." Tom Baker, a former FBI guy at WaEx, Has the FBI become a threat to democracy? The threat was always there; in recent years it's political actions have become more overt. Richard McDonough at Am Think discourses on The Democrat Party’s 'Dirty Hands'. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 06.16.22, Scott Johnson at Power Line Coup’s next.

How about a congressional investigation of the perversion of our law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the service of the Russia hoax intended to take out Donald Trump? The FBI, FISA, and the FISA court should be shut down until we get some answers about the abuse of the law in the service of the hoax. It is all unfinished business, although the Democrats are doing their best to make us forget.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll  "for Friday shows that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-seven percent (57%) disapprove." Capt. Ed at Haut Hair, Still slidin', Biden: 47% *strongly* disapprove in new USA Today/Suffolk poll. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 06.16.22, The Lid: How Low Can You Joe?. He's already below where I thought he could get. At PJ Media VodkaPundit feels an EARTHQUAKE: Biden Is 'Too Old' and Should 'Step Aside,' Says NYT Insider. Breitbart reads the Slantic so you don't have to, Atlantic: ‘Joe Biden Should Not Run for Reelection in 2024. WaPoo, Biden sends every signal he is running again. He has to, until he can't. HE opines that Biden Must Stop Trying to Rule the Nation Through Executive Orders and Federal Fiat

George Neumayr at Am Spec on What the Victory of Mayra Flores Portends for the Democrats. "The Hispanic Republican won in a blue congressional district by repudiating Biden’s agenda." At Da Caller, ‘I’ve Never Met A LatinX: CNN’s Van Jones Tears Into Left-Wing Rhetoric. 'Bonchie' at Red State, Van Jones Leaves CNN Anchors Stunned After Spitting Truth About the Democrat Party. Gwen Sims at PJ,  After 10-Year Drought, One California GOP Candidate Predicts Big Surprises in November. Surprise me. Olivia Murray at Am Think thinks Arizona's closely watched Senate race continues to surprise. Grenell makes an anti-endorsement. Richard Grenell@RichardGrenell "Earlier today, I told
@jim_lamon that I can no longer support his candidacy."

 Ace, Two California Police Officers Gunned Down Dead After Soros Prosecutor Gascon Lets the Killer -- a Career Gang-Banger -- Skate On a Gun Charge, "He was given a "lenient" sentence by Gascon." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 06.16.22, at the BattleSwarm: Everyone Hates Soros’ LA DA George Gascon, Including His Own Prosecutors . Lloyd Billingsley at Front Page, Boudin, Biden and Ballots, "The people will punish pro-criminal politicians -- and not all elections can be rigged."
