No, Ben, it was a Strzok of genius

One of the reasons cable television pundits are so useless is that they give a microscopic view of Washington (which is a pretty boring and colorless place) when they need to look at the big picture. They follow events too closely.

Consider Ben Shapirio's take, "Why The Peter Strzok Hearing Was A Giant Waste Of Time."

Wrong. The Strzok hearing showed this loon for who he is.



We like to think of our FBI agents as Efrem Zimbalist Jr. or Tommy Lee Jones.

Instead, we got Pee Wee Herman. I know you are, but what am I?

But as Shapiro showed, there was more.

"Perhaps the only thing the hearing accomplished was to make everyone look rather terrible. Republicans looked like they wanted their moment in the sun; Democrats looked like they were defending bias in law enforcement; Strzok looked like a self-assured, smug jerk," Shapiro wrote.

"The hearing did not, however, clear up the central question surrounding Strzok: in which way, precisely, did Strzok’s bias affect the Russian collusion investigation?"

Oh he is so wrong, reading his words can give you brain freeze.

Most Americans didn't know Peter Strzok from Peter Potamus. To most people, Strzok was an FBI agent, and everyone knows from television that FBI agents are dedicated to the truth, and are noble public servants. They are Eliot Nesses bringing down the Al Capones of the world.

This meant the collusion investigation is on the up-and-up.

On Thursday, they got to see Strzok up close-and-personal and were shocked to see someone closer to Hannibal Lector than Clarice Starling.

Not only did he look like a creep but he acted like one. He lied to his wife at breakfast about his mistress.

As for Republicans and Democrats politicizing the event, it is what they do. It is like puppies peeing on the carpet. They cannot control themselves.

Shapiro said the central question was "Did Strzok’s bias affect the Russian collusion investigation?"

How could it not be? He showed himself to be a smug insider who sneered at congressmen. Of course he tried to stop the election of President Trump.

His testimony may have sunk the already listing Mueller investigation.

Indeed, Mueller scrambled the next day to announce 12 useless indictments against Russians who will never be extradited and tried. Knowing he will never have to prove his case, he could accuse them of anything. He was diverting attention from the collapse in credibility of his top FBI agent in the case originally.

The people who do not pay close attention got a glimpse into the ugliness of this investigation. As they say, once seen, it cannot be unseen.

  2. It was unclear to me why the heads of the committees were spending so much time trying to get this schmuck in a public hearing and were wasting time. I thought he would plead the Fifth and then slink out with his lawyer. But after THAT performance it became clear to me at least that they had already interviewed him behind closed door and knew what a loathsome psycho he is and the public HAD to see it to believe it. This mentally unbalanced creep was one of the top men in the FBI. If that doesn't make your skin crawl nothing will. The FBI must be reformed, remade and cleaned out like a stable with pitchforks.

    1. The images of Creepy Uncle Pete will linger long in the memory.
      In front of the cameras, finally on show to all the world, Strzok even then made no attempt to disguise his contempt.

  6. Congressional hearings are designed to allow politicians to posture. They are not designed to uncover the truth.

  7. I was frustrated early on that they kept letting him " explain" or answer questions not asked.. but it became clear, they allowed him to talk because he did enormous damage to himself in doing so.. and he made a LOT of statements " under oath" to now hold him to account on. I'm sure by late in the day, his handlers were getting mighty nervous.

  8. Never-Trumper Shapiro can’t admit that the dog and pony show ended up good for PDJT and bad for the swamp.

  9. Excellent point, Don. Strzok is now tarnished as a witness in any prosecution Mueller should choose to pursue. Mueller probably knows it, too. The head FBI counter-intelligence investigator would have been Mueller's strongest witness before a jury. But that was last week. Testimony by Strzok in court is now worth less than a red cent.

    1. Not to mention, how many potential whistleblowers within the FBI has Strzok’s burlesqued depiction of an agent now goaded into action?

    1. Shapiro is the one of those who thinks he's the "smartest person in the room". He's not unlike Comey and Strzok in that sense.

  12. Funny how Strzok knew about the active investigation of the Trump/Russia criminal conspiracy before the election, but didn't leak a word.

    Outside the rightwad bubble, Strzok's performance seems to have played better with the American public. Just seeing the goobers (gomers/goobers) from the GOP so desperate to undermine the FBI. Why are they so afraid?

    1. Uh-huh, if Strzok had molested a little boy you democrats would be out defending him telling us that the little boy had it coming. That's how well his testimony played outside the rightward bubble.

    3. Oh please, Democrats, make Strzok your poster boy for 2018. "We stand with Strzok" has a nice ring to it. He's all yours. Make the most of him.

    4. "Funny how Strzok knew about the active investigation of the Trump/Russia criminal conspiracy before the election, but didn't leak a word."

      Kinda hard to leak about a nonexistent "conspiracy," ain't it?

      I'd say it's pretty funny that you're defending the indefensible; but then you get paid. Don't you?

  16. "Shapiro said the central question was "Did Strzok’s bias affect the Russian collusion investigation?""

    That's not the question. The central question is this:

    Will there be a reckoning for the Deep State Coup Attempt or will Democrats normalize sedition? If they reject Washington's peaceful transfer of power for a politically-weaponized CIA/FBI/DOJ, then our civil compact is over. If you think you can rig elections by any means necessary, then i must stop you by any means necessary.

    The hearing was itself a part of the Reckoning that must take place.

  17. Strzok is the epitome of the "swamp" meets the "dark state". He wasn't just an ordinary agent. He was the "cream of the crop" and in a high leadership position promoting people just like himself. The American people needed to see this for themselves to believe it.

  18. How DO these people get to be at the top of the FBI? Why is someone like Strzok or like Comey even in the FBI? Have you ever noticed how the doctors in some medical specialities universally strange? Or that college professors tend to be weird? It's because the medical mentors and the tenured professors get to choose who will be in their training programs. They tend to pick people like themselves and they get weirder all the time. So it seems to be in the FBI. They are simply strange dudes and they don't even know it!

  19. Strzok's demonic contempt for common decency puts an identifiable face on everything for which the Left stands. Prissy malicious animosity. There are millions of Leftists among us who are driven by that same kind of arrogance and malice. If it were not so, despicable people like Nancy Pelosi, the Clintons and Chuck Schumer could not gain and hold high office. Strzok's revelation of himself is fair warning. In keeping with Leftist doctrine, Stzrok's primary actions and attitude toward anything or anyone Not Left are hypocrisy and hate.

  20. Ben Shapiro, whom I adore, is actually getting things more wrong lately because he is allowing his Never Trump bias to affect his thinking. I hope he comes to grips pretty soon.

  22. My personal opinion, Peter strzok'd Lisa with a bias. He used her for his own twisted pleasure. POTUS please unclassify Lisa's testimony so the deltas in testimonies see the light of day. Don, please don't denegrade Pee Wee Herman. At least he was funny. Strzok is a creature of the 7th Floor of FBI HQ - a egomanical jerk.
