TO VICTOR, SAMI, JACK AND THE ENTIRE STAFF:
WITH ALL GOOD NEWS THERE COMES BAD.
THE GOOD NEWS: WELL DONE. THE PODCAST, SUPPLEMENTED BY ALL OF VICTOR’S COPIOUS MATERIAL IS JUST WONDERFUL. I’M SO VERY GRATEFUL…
THE BAD NEWS: JUST HEARD THE LATEST WEEKEND PODCAST WITH DEVON NUNES–AND EVEN WORSE, THE PROMISE OF MORE INTERVIEWS TO COME IN “A NEW SERIES.”
LIKE ALL SUCCESSFUL ENTERPRISES, IN MY VIEW YOU HAVE NOW MISTAKENLY ENTERED WHAT VICTOR WOULD NO DOUBT CHARACTERIZE AS “THE HUBRIS STAGE.”
AND HERE’S MY POINT (“WHAT I’M GETTING AT” TO USE THE VDH PARLANCE). WE WANT AND PAY
TO HEAR VICTOR–HIS VIEWS, HIS TAKES ON CONTEMPORARY ISSUES, HIS LECTURES, INTERVIEWS, AND SPEECHES.
NOT ANYONE ELSE (AND I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST NUNES). BUT I MUST POINT OUT THAT AFTER THE ONE HOUR OF LISTENING, I LEARNED NOTHING (FUNDAMENTALLY) NEW–
AND EVEN WORSE, JOTTED DOWN NO NEW CONCEPTS, WORDS, HISTORICAL CONCEPTS OR PARALLELS, OR EVEN HISTORICAL FIGURES WHO I COULD THEN RESEARCH IN ORDER TO WIDEN MY OWN PERSONAL HORIZONS.
NOTHING. NADA. I FELT AS IF I HAD WASTED THE HOUR (WHICH BELIEVE ME OR NOT IS QUITE VALUABLE TO ME), AND EVEN WORSE, THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALL MY MONTHS OF LOYALLY FOLLOWING VDH HAD LEARNED NOTHING OF LASTING CONSEQUENCE.
NOT A GOOD FEELING AFTER SO MUCH SATISFACTION.
WARNING: WHEN VICTOR ASKS THE QUESTIONS INSTEAD OF GIVING THE ANSWERS–YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY TO LOSING ME.
SO I SO HOPE OTHERS ARE ALSO PUSHING BACK AGAINST THIS DISTURBING NEW TURN…
I just signed up at TruthSocial.com . No big issues, email address, birthdate, username and a couple of identity checks involving email and a text message on your cell phone (which seems bo be called an SMS.) It appears to be a lot like Facebook, which mean I have no idea about how to navigate it. When I opened the home page I found innumerable videos and messages about things I had no interest in. I personally think this media is basically useless, but I appreciate Devon’s willingness to attempt to engage the delusional left in their arena.
Devon’s hopes for a reformed Congress presumes that the administrative state will facilitate their efforts in holding the past culprits accountable. The House may subpoena someone, but we know the DoJ won’t help in forcing compliance. Heck, the custodians in the Capitol Building may deny access to the new members. Or the DC Police might arrest the newcomers and throw them in the same cells now occupied by the J6 rioters. Who will support the newcomers?
Not addressed here is the propensity of Republicans, once elected, to become spineless, go-along, get-along wimps.
Fifteen Republicans, including Cornyn who helped write it, voted for the firearms bill.
House Republicans, when Democrats controlled the Senate, voted some fifty times to reverse ACA. Then Republicans won majorities in both houses… .
We need a crop of Republicans with principles…and Big Ones.
.*Then Republicans won majorities in both houses…and .
.*…majorities in both houses…and .
…because it’s much harder to rule than to criticize -as the dems are demonstrating on a daily basis. By the time the Republicans got their majority, ACA involved how many jobs? How many participants? How many extremely expensive changes to the insurance industry? Think of the massive fallout that would have followed the repeal of the ACA after all the damage done by the formation of the ACA. This is why the dems are always in a rush to pass as much as they can: once a new program takes root, it’s impossible to rip it out without causing massive additional damage.
Your interview with Devin Nunes was amazing! If there ever was the ability to clone a congressman, I’d like 435 copies of Devin Nunes! Our country would be a much better place with his common sense wisdom and guidance.
Thank you once again for a riveting interview. This precious country has so many internal enemies we don’t even need external enemies.
Good to hear Nunes believes GOP must USE THEIR POWER against the D.C. establishment to try to clean out the stables of DoJ & Congress. Please God make it happen.
Following this interview I decided to establish a Truthsocial account. Looking for it didn’t work so I typed in http://www.truthsocial.com and got to it. Followed the instructions, one of which was to input my email address. Got a message stating that an email was successfully sent along with the screen instructing me to click on a link in the incoming email to verify my address. Never got the email. Repeated inputting my address three more times and received a notice each time that an email was successfully sent. Never got one. Don’t know whether SBC Global.net is blocking it or there is some other reason but it is suspicious.
On the subject of losing House Committee Membership, Adam Schiff darn well better be on the top of that list and his absence should last as long as he is a member of the House. America needs to make that happen to provide any sort of deterrence against similar nefarious activity.
So, Devin, what do we do about Mitch and Lindsey, Senators Milk Toast and Small Beer? There is little doubt in my mind that these two are not up to taking on the Far Left (aka the Democrat government machine). They are part of the problem, not part of the solution. When will the Republicans wise up and get those clown onto the “back bench” where they belong?
What makes you think moving the Republican Party to the right of Mitch McConnell and making it more aggressive than he is will still garner the party enough votes to fulfill that new agenda? Agenda purity and vicious purges are currently destroying the Progressives. Why do you think doing the same won’t produce the same results for the Republicans?
So much complaining. Why you do not discuss January 6 attack on the congress that is unprecedented in USA history. The world is watching this event and wonder about usa democracy.
