Reader Comments

Observations on the week’s analysis and commentary.

Editor’s Note: Thank you for sending comments on our news, policy, and opinion — we review every one of them. Here are a few reader perspectives, which don’t necessarily reflect those of The Patriot Post.

Re: A ‘Devastating’ Report From John Durham

“Every step the FBI took was false, but Durham warned in his executive summary that unethical behavior is not necessarily prosecutable. No surprise that the MSM are claiming ‘nothing to see here’ because no criminal charges were brought. Christopher Wray should tell the Washington office to get back to bank robberies and kidnappings and let the deep state chips fall where they may. The mission of the FBI is not to protect the civil service from reform by an elected president.” —California

“There’s really nothing new here for anyone who’s been paying attention. What would really be news is if any of the lying, criminal members of the FBI, Clinton, or Biden cartels were ever prosecuted for their crimes. But no — the DOJ is too busy hunting down parents trying to stop CRT or sexual grooming in schools, the ‘white supremacists,’ and another thousand people for ‘walking around in unauthorized areas’ on January 6.” —Georgia

Re: Indict the ‘Trump/Russia Collusion’ Conspirators: Clinton/Comey/Brennan

“Sadly, absolutely nothing will be done that will punish the Clinton/Comey/Brennan co-conspirators for their outright lies and violations of law. Reverse the players and Trump and his allies would all be behind bars.” —California

“Indict right now. Otherwise, with every passing day, they all will get away with it because it will be disregarded as ‘water over the dam.’” —Florida

Re: Biden’s Graduation Tale of ‘White Supremacy’

“I really believe that Democrats in general are indoctrinated by their party to believe that race-baiting is the only way to win, and their party uses it daily. If I was a Democrat, I would leave the party. Democrat talking points are always about the color of people’s skin. Black people have their own problems, and Democrats indoctrinate them even more to control them. Blacks need to wake up and smell the coffee. They have been used since President Lincoln gave them freedom, but they still vote for the people who never wanted them free and still don’t. Why are colleges having separate graduations for blacks and whites? Why?” —Ohio

“I asked myself, Why do we still have this ongoing race war between blacks and whites after all the gains we have made since the 1960s? We have enforced equal hiring, education, housing, voting, you name it. We have tried more than any nation on earth to provide equal opportunities. I have concluded that it is the hate-mongers who keep this ‘white supremacy’ farce going. Their livelihoods and political careers depend upon keeping the American people divided, and they instigate hate wherever they can.” —Pennsylvania

Re: The China Dilemma

“Biden is the Manchurian president. Every action he takes makes China stronger and more of a threat to the West in general and America specifically. The activity going on in South America is the most alarming. This is our backyard. This regime in DC has been bought and paid off by the CCP. The Biden clan has made millions, benefiting China in every way. It didn’t give these grifters all that money for nothing. In another time, these people would face the same fate as the Rosenbergs. Alas, we are not a serious nation any longer. We are in a downward spiral and look more and more like the failed Roman Empire.” —New York

Re: Biden, Obama, and the ‘Scandal-Free’ Years

“It’s certainly justified to pick on poor golden-boy Obama. As you said, he’s ‘either complicit in the corruption or utterly asleep at the switch.’ His silence is deafening, and, as always with the Left, they’re either corrupt or clueless. The onus is always on the people to discern which. But really, it shouldn’t be too hard when the Left is smart enough to run campaigns, stay in office by any means, and line their pockets all the while. We see it. If only more of us would believe it and act against it. But of course, corruption neither began nor ended with Obama. Over Biden’s term alone, we have enough evidence against a wide range of corrupt leftists to satisfy any prosecution. Our inaction is shameful.” —Illinois

Re: Tuesday Short Cuts

“In Non Compos Mentis today, I guess what Senator Murphy was saying is that if universal background checks are not allowed by the Supreme Court, the justices would be in the Left’s crosshairs. But let’s be real: He probably doesn’t know which end of a gun scope to look through, much less what any other part of a gun does. What the government needs to do is enforce the laws already on the books, not make new ones. All criminals who need a gun will get one, no matter the laws, and enforcement is what is needed.” —Illinois

Re: Profiles of Valor: Audie Murphy

“Thank you for this profile of a great American Patriot. In this day, such reminders of those who once and still do walk among us is much needed.” —New York
