US government Kabuki Theater, Pt. VII

This is the continuation of a series of posts dealing with issues where some individuals in the United States government are attempting to hold at least a portion of the rest of the federal government accountable and responsible for its actions and inactions. The public displays we find, however, are not unlike the most bizarre of Kabuki Theater or Theater of the Absurd.

Here, Chairman Trey Gowdy lovingly guides Representative Hank Johnson (GA, 4th) back onto the tracks after Johnson attempts to direct Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu into answering questions the way he wants them answered, with regard to border and illegal immigration issues.

Let us not forget that this is the same Rep. Hank Johnson who, not unlike the Stegosaurus, has a brain the size of a walnut and requires a separate ganglion of nerves in his hips to make his rear legs walk. Guam is a perfect example.

I submit that your average bag of cement would represent Georgia’s 4th with more consistent insight than Mr Johnson, as he has so eloquently proven. Georgia, you are paying this man an excellent wage with outstanding benefits and a bulletproof pension, I should care to remind you.

Please remember, ladies and gentlemen, these are your federal tax dollars either

  1. At work, or
  2. Pissed away with abandon

More to come.

The public displays we find, however, are not unlike the most bizarre of Kabuki Theater or Theater of the Absurd.

Here, Trey Gowdy addresses conflict of interest issues with a massive Leftist lawyer regarding the IRS, Lois Lerner and Loretta Lynch.

BZ’s Berserk Bobcat Saloon, “The Aftermath,” Thursday, May 25th, 2017, featuring guest/author Jim Curtis

My thanks to the SHR Media Network™ for allowing me to broadcast in their studio and over their air twice weekly, Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as appear on the Sack Heads Radio Show™ each Wednesday evening.

As an aside, because the ™ symbol so annoys my Favorite Troll™ I’ve decided to apply it elsewhere as you can see.

Our special guest on the show was veteran and author J.L. “Jim” Curtis from OldNFO.org, Jim’s author page on Amazon.com describes him this way:

JL Curtis was born in Louisiana in 1951 and was raised in the Ark-La-Tex area. He began his education with guns at age eight with a SAA and a Grandfather that had carried one for ‘work’. He began competitive shooting in the 1970s, an interest he still pursues time permitting. He is a retired Naval Flight Officer, having spent 22 years serving his country, an NRA instructor, a retired engineer in the defense industry, and now a starving author. He lives in North Texas, He currently has two series in work. The Grey Man, a Texas based current fiction series revolving around LEOs and Marines. And the Rimworld Series, started with a short story that was an Amazon Best Seller for five days after its release.

I’ve read Jim’s work, I purchased all of his books (as you can see above) and I believe in his writing. For those who enjoy military/law enforcement-oriented books, Jim’s THE GREY MAN series is highly recommended. For those of a sci-fi bent, Jim’s newest book (the beginning of a series) RIMWORLD: Into The Green will please those of a more realistic science fiction nature. Either way you can’t go wrong with a Jim Curtis book. I’m a reprobate bastard so I like the actual printed books that I can hold in my fetid paws.

You can (heavy sigh) acquire his books on Kindle as well. If you must. Harumph.

Tonight in the Saloon:

  • We speak to veteran and author Jim Curtis;
  • White Mamba dislikes my bartender Flakbait; guess who’s serving tonight?
  • Another Bolivian time check;
  • Another great chat roll; thanks to Mary Brockman for bringing the horde with her;
  • BZ chickens out on activating the live video stream; cowardly indeed;
  • Alan Dershowitz writes about terrorism; he’s absolutely correct. Why did it take a Leftist attorney to write a piece that should have been penned by Republicans?
  • Euro Leftists snicker at Trump whilst he calls on them to pay their “fair share.” This is a slap in the face to EVERY American Taxpayer; you are EXPECTED to pony your cash up for your Euro betters you dumpy proles, groundlings, commoners, serfs, US trash; I wonder why you’re not speaking GERMAN today, eh wot?
  • Only 5 of the 28 NATO countries are contributing their contractual 2% GDP to help out NATO; it’s the US that mostly funds NATO as it does with the United Nations;
  • Estonia and Poland are meeting their NATO obligations; France, Germany, Belgium are not even pretending to do so;
  • It’s the AMERICAN TAXPAYER who is getting boned by the entitled European Elite cock gobblers who DEMAND that you pony up your cash;
  • The EU proves BZ’s Criminal Axiom is now applicable to Europe: “what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine unless you have the strength to keep it”;
  • Europe to American Taxpayers: get going. Harder work and more of it;
  • BZ wants to set up more author interviews in the future to include CJ Box, Brad Thor and perhaps even Joseph Wambaugh, my personal hero from the 1970s;
  • Trey Gowdy: surveillance programs will not be reauthorized until answers are given;
  • President Trump: leakers will be prosecuted. The NYT has now decided to jeopardize the security relationships between the US and foreign powers;
  • Lou Dobbs: we are at war;
  • Too many Republicans are EstabliHacks and kissing the arses of Demorats;
  • Virginia Trump travel stay issued from the 4th DCA;
  • Muslims are now determining the “fake law” for the United States;
  • Minnesota wavers on FGM; “I guess it might not be all that bad”;

Trey Gowdy holds his mud

And God bless him for that.

From Breitbart.com:

Gowdy: No Reauthorization of Surveillance Programs Until Unmasking Questions Answered

by Jeff Poor

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said Congress would not reauthorize certain surveillance programs until questions about the “unmasking” of Americans’ identities under the past administration were answered.

“We are not going to reauthorize these surveillance programs if the American people are not satisfied their security is going to be safeguarded,” Gowdy said. “So, the leaks are one issue. The unmasking within the intelligence community — that is a privilege to be able to request that a U.S. person’s name be unmasked. And I want to know who is making that request, what is the evidentiary basis of that request and if it’s late in your tenure, like the day before you leave office, that should send off alarms and sirens as to why that person does it.”

Demorats couldn’t see this coming?
