Unprecedented Number of Americans Want to Give Trump Power to Close Down “Fake News” Outlets

August 8, 2018

thoughts-and-prayers-600-la (2)

The Daily Beast reports that

Freedom of the press may be guaranteed in the Constitution. But a plurality of Republicans want to give President Trump the authority to close down certain news outlets, according to a new public opinion survey conducted by Ipsos and provided exclusively to The Daily Beast.

The findings present a sobering picture for the fourth estate, with respondents showing diminished trust in the media and increased support for punitive measures against its members. They also illustrate the extent to which Trump’s anti-press drumbeat has shaped public opinion about the role the media plays in covering his administration.

All told, 43 percent of self-identified Republicans said that they believed “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” Only 36 percent disagreed with that statement. When asked if Trump should close down specific outlets, including CNN, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, nearly a quarter of Republicans (23 percent) agreed and 49 percent disagreed.

Republicans were far more likely to take a negative view of the media. Forty-eight percent of them said they believed “the news media is the enemy of the American people” (just 28 percent disagreed) while nearly four out of every five (79 percent) said that they believed “the mainstream media treats President Trump unfairly.”

But swaths of self-identified Democrats and Independents supported anti-press positions as well. According to the survey, 12 percent of Democrats and 21 percent of Independents agreed that “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior” (74 percent and 55 percent, respectively, disagreed). Additionally, 12 percent of Democrats and 26 percent of Independents agreed that “the news media is the enemy of the American people” (74 percent and 50 percent, respectively, disagreed)

I know that I have been writing a lot about the Main Stream Media lately, but, the manner in which they have been taking an active role in attempting the same sort of “Silent Coup” as the Deep State has been, has really stayed on my mind.

For the MSM to be playing a role in American Politics is nothing new. For as long as I can remember, they have taken the role of an advocate in local and national elections, instead of acting like objective reporters of the news, as the founders of their profession called for them to be.

Covering up the peccadilloes of the Presidents which they liked and exaggerating the faults of the ones which they didn’t has been the modus operandi of the media for decades.

The MSM has covered for Democratic President since before First Lady Jackie Kennedy found a pair of panties under her pillow and asked her husband, President John F. (Jack) Kennedy to ask around and give them back to whomever they belonged to.

However, during the Presidential Primaries and the Campaign leading up to that fateful night of November 8, 2016, something snapped in the minds of the minions who populate the Main Stream Media.

They stopped being merely advocates. They became Political Campaign Managers, acting as the Vanguard of the Far Left Democratic Party, a political position which they hold to this day.

During the 2016 Presidential Campaign, they carefully picked and chose the news stories to cover which would be the most advantageous to Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton, in a Herculean effort to drag her unlikable, unhealthy, unapproachable ummm…self across the finish line ahead of the charismatic Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump.

Having failed miserably and being beside themselves in shock and grief, as witnessed on the cable news channels on the glorious night of November 6, 2018, the MSM vowed, just like the Deep State did, to somehow, someway remove Trump from the presidency by posting fake news stories while attempting to block and ridicule everything he is doing to Make America Great Again.

The Republican number in the above poll comes as no surprise. But, for 33% of Democrats and “Independents” ( usually Democrats afraid of identifying themselves) to want to give the president the power to reign in the Main Stream Media, really makes a statement as to the lack of objectivity within the vaunted “fourth estate”.

While indeed the First Amendment does allow Freedom of Speech, as those in the Legal Profession will tell you, the Media is not above being held responsible for the stories full of falsehoods and libel which they write.

The lack of public trust in the MSM and their incessant attacks on the president and the issues which matter most to those of us who voted for him, are what has led to Americans finding other outlets through which to find out the news of the day.

If the Main Stream media do not “back away” for their present behavior, they are going to advocate themselves straight out of business.

11 House Reps Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Rosenstein – Why It is About Time

July 26, 2018

ap-rod-rosenstein

FoxNews.com reports that

A group of 11 House Republicans introduced five articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday evening.

The impeachment articles accuse Rosenstein of intentionally withholding documents and information from Congress, failure to comply with congressional subpoenas and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

It was not immediately clear whether the House of Representatives would consider the resolution before lawmakers begin the August recess Thursday afternoon. The House will reconvene Sept. 4.

The resolution states it will be “referred to the Committee,” meaning the Judiciary Committee, for further review. That language suggests the full House will not immediately consider the articles of impeachment.

The articles were introduced by Reps. Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Jim Jordan of Ohio, the chairman and a prominent member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

In one article of impeachment, Rosenstein is accused of improperly signing off on the FISA surveillance warrant application against ex-Trump aide Carter Page.

…The application heavily relied on the infamous Steele Dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC and contained unverified, salacious allegations against Trump.

“Under Mr. Rosenstein’s supervision, the Department of Justice and FBI intentionally obfuscated the fact the dossier was originally a political opposition research document before the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court],” the articles of impeachment state.

They continue: “As Deputy Attorney General, Mr. Rosenstein has failed in his responsibility for the proper authorization of searches under FISA, and his conduct related to the surveillance of American citizens working on the Trump campaign has permanently undermined both public and congressional confidence in significant counterintelligence program processes.”

The documents also charge that Rosenstein has an impermissible conflict of interest.

“His conduct in authorizing the FISA surveillance at issue in the joint congressional investigation makes him a fact witness central to the ongoing investigation of potential FISA abuse,” the articles state. “Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s failure to recuse himself in light of this inherent conflict of interest and failure to recommend the appointment of a second Special Counsel constitute dereliction of duty.”

Rosenstein named Special Counsel Robert Mueller to lead the Trump-Russia probe after Rosenstein’s boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, recused himself from the investigation because of Sessions’ own role in the Trump campaign.

Gentle readers, do you remember last month when Rosenstein appeared before the House Judiciary Committee?

CNSNews.com reported at the time that

In response to two specific questions–did the Department of Justice or the FBI spy on the Trump campaign, and did anyone in the Obama administration direct confidential informants to make contact with the campaign–Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday he was “not permitted to discuss any classified information.”

“Let me ask you this,” Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) asked Rosenstein.

“What did the DOJ or FBI do in terms of collecting information, spying or surveillance on the Trump campaign, be it via (FBI informant) Stefan Halper, or anybody else working on behalf of the agencies?” DeSantis asked Rosenstein.

“As you know, Congressman, I’m not permitted to discuss any classified information in an open setting, but I can assure you, we’re working with oversight committees and we’re producing all relevant evidence to allow them to answer this question,” Rosenstein replied.

DeSantis again: “Let me ask you this then: Did the Obama administration, anybody in the administration, direct anybody — Halper or anybody else — to make contact with anyone associated with the Trump campaign?

“As I said Congressman, I appreciate, obviously, the — I understand your interest, but I’m not permitted to discuss classified information,” Rosenstein said again.

“Well, we want the documents, and I know we’re in a back and forth on that,” DeSantis said. “But the American people need to know, were the counterintelligence powers of the Obama administration unleashed against Trump’s campaign — if that was done, was it done inappropriate?”

The smugness of Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice Rod Rosenstein in answering the Committee’s questions did not go unnoticed by the Congressional Representatives in attendance and average Americans, who were watching the proceedings at home.

As a matter of fact, those Representatives who drew up those articles of Impeachment and average Americans have a lot in common. We all remain both disgusted and concerned about a Deputy Attorney General of the DOJ acting as if it was beneath him to answer questions which Congress and the American People have a right to know concerning the attempted interference in the 2016 Presidential Election by Deep State Operatives within our own government.

The Hierarchy of the DOJ, like our municipal police organizations around the nation, are supposed to “serve and protect” the citizens of our great country.

Not themselves and the Democratic Party.

The silly games which Rosenstein and the Hierarchy of the FBI and the Special Counsel which he appointed have been playing for the entirety of the Trump Presidency became old, stale, and unappreciated by the American Public a long time ago.

A Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice has repeatedly told members of the House of Representatives that he did not know diddly-squat about the activities of those under him.

If you buy that, I would like to talk to you about purchasing a lifetime membership in the Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez Center for Rational Thought.

It is time to begin the process of restoring the System of Checks and Balances to the Three Branches of Government which our Founding Fathers so magnificently created and bequeathed to us.

Certain representatives of the Judicial Branch have decided that they outrank the Legislative and the Executive.

The Founders created all three branches to be servants of the American People.

It’s time to re-introduce Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to a concept personified by a statue, known as “Blind Justice”.

Impeach him.

CNN Airs Cohen/Trump Audio Tape About McDougal

July 25, 2018

Lanny-Davis-Michael-Cohen-FlickrGetty-Images

“There’s no way the president’s going to be talking about setting up a corporation, and then using cash, unless you’re a complete idiot. And the president’s not an idiot.”

…“The point is the president wanted the transaction to be memorialized.” – Trump Attorney Rudy Giuliani

CNN.com reports that

Presidential candidate Donald Trump is heard on tape discussing with his attorney Michael Cohen how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model’s story about an alleged affair Trump had with her years earlier, according to the audio recording of the conversation aired exclusively on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.”

The recording offers the public a glimpse at the confidential discussions between Trump and Cohen, and it confirms the man who now occupies the Oval Office had contemporaneous knowledge of a proposal to buy the rights to the story of Karen McDougal, a woman who has alleged she had an extramarital affair with Trump about a decade ago.

Cohen told Trump about his plans to set up a company and finance the purchase of the rights from American Media, which publishes the National Enquirer.

“I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend David,” Cohen said in the recording, likely a reference to American Media head David Pecker.

Trump interrupts Cohen asking, “What financing?” according to the recording. When Cohen tells Trump, “We’ll have to pay.” Trump is heard saying “pay with cash” but the audio is muddled and it’s unclear whether he suggests paying with cash or not paying. Cohen says, “no, no” but it is not clear what is said next.

No payment was ever made from Trump, Rudy Giuliani, the President’s attorney, has said. Giuliani has previously acknowledged that the recorded discussion related to the buying the story rights.

The recording, which was provided to CNN by Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis, was made in September 2016.

“What is this about? This is about honesty versus false disparagement of Michael Cohen.

Why is Giuliani out falsely disparaging Michael Cohen — because they fear him,” Davis said on “Cuomo Prime Time.”

“What do they fear, Chris? Why am I representing him? They fear that he has the truth about Donald Trump. He will someday speak the truth about Donald Trump. The truth is that when Donald Trump said ‘cash,’ which Rudy Giuliani knows that only drug dealers and mobsters talk about cash, it was, you heard Michael Cohen … say what? ‘No, no, no, no.'”

Davis later added: “Ladies and gentlemen, if you voted for Donald Trump, listen to the tape and ask yourself: Is Donald Trump lying when he said he didn’t use the word ‘cash’ and accuses Michael Cohen of using the word ‘cash’? Cohen has been disparaged. Cohen has been insulted and called all sorts of things by people around Donald Trump.”

Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, refuted that the tape shows Trump was offering a cash payment.

“Whoever is telling Davis that cash in that conversation refers to green currency is lying to him,” Futerfas told CNN. “There’s no transaction done in green currency. It doesn’t happen. The whole deal never happened. If it was going to happen, it would be a payment to a large company that would obviously be accompanied by an agreement of sale. Those documents would be prepared by lawyers on both sides.”

Cash, in the conversation, was in reference to how a deal would be financed, Futerfas added.

“The word cash came up in the context of the distinction between financing, which is referenced, and no financing, which means a full payment, a total one-time payment.

That’s the context in which the word cash is used,” he said. “Anyone who knows anything about the company or how the President does business knows there is no green cash. Everything is documented. Every penny is documented.”

Court filings said federal prosecutors have obtained 12 audio recordings from the FBI raids on Cohen earlier this year. CNN previously reported that Trump’s lawyers waived attorney-client privilege on the President’s behalf regarding the recording involving him personally.

The discussion relates to whether Trump should buy the rights of the story from American Media, which paid McDougal $150,000 in August 2016 for her story about an alleged 10 month affair with Trump. The story was never published by AMI.

In addition to discussing the McDougal payment, Trump and Cohen are overheard running through a list of potential legal issues, including contesting a New York Times request to unseal divorce records from Trump’s first wife Ivana as well as more mundane matters such as polling numbers and Trump surrogate Pastor Mark Burns.

What in the name of Donna Shalala does this have to do with the original accusation against the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, which Special Counsel Robert Mueller is supposed to be investigating?

The answer is nothing at all.

The reason being that THERE IS NO RUSSIAN COLLUSION. Never was and never will be.

However, gentle readers, what we do have is a lawyer about to be disbarred for breaking Attorney-Client Privilege.

Per legaldictionary.com,

In the law of evidence, a client’s privilege to refuse to disclose, and to prevent any other person from disclosing, confidential communications between the client and his or her attorney. Such privilege protects communications between attorney and client that are made for the purpose of furnishing or obtaining professional legal advice or assistance. That privilege that permits an attorney to refuse to testify as to communications from the client. It belongs to the client, not the attorney, and hence only the client may waive it. In federal courts, state law is applied with respect to such privilege.

This is a bond that attorneys are not allowed to break, even to save their own sorry as…err…self.

There is no doubt in my mind that Attorney Lanny Davis is advising his client, Michael Cohen, to break this sacred bond.

You may have seen Lanny Davis on CNN, Fox, MSNBC, or any other new channel he could get his mug on.

Just who is he?

Per heavy.com,

Lanny Davis, who worked as White House Special Counsel under Bill Clinton, is a staunch supporter of both Bill and Hillary Clinton. He attended Yale Law School with Hillary and says that he has been friendly with her and with Bill ever since.

Davis repeatedly defended Hillary Clinton when she came under attack for her email and server use during the 2016 presidential campaign.

And he went so far as to say that Clinton would have won the 2016 election — if it hadn’t been for James Comey and the timing of his investigation. Davis said that Comey’s letter to Congress, announcing that he was investigating Clinton’s emails, swung the election decisively in Trump’s favor.

Davis made the case in a book, “The Unmasking of the Presidency.” He argued that Comey’s letter came at the worst possible time for Hillary: just a few weeks before the election itself, so that she had no time to address the issues before Americans went to the polls

The plot sickens.

When the original raid on Trump Attorney Michael Cohen’s office in New York happened last August, Fox News reported that

…Cohen’s attorney, Stephen Ryan, said Monday’s raid was conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan and was based at least partly on a referral from Mueller.

“The decision by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary,” Ryan said in a statement. “It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney client communications between a lawyer and his clients.”

A source close to the White House also agreed with Trump’s take on the alleged bias of Mueller investigators, saying that “the hiring of all those Clinton people for Mueller’s team was not an accident. It was done to bring down the president.”

And now, a long-time friend and attorney of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s is representing President Trump’s Former Attorney and releasing audio tapes

Do you see a pattern here, gentle readers?

You have Washington Insiders, Deep State Operatives if you will, working to overturn the will of the American People, as expressed in the Presidential Election held on November 8, 2016.

You have a Special Counsel who served as a mule for Hillary Clinton during the scandal known as Uranium One, in which she, as Secretary of State, sold 20% of our uranium supply to the Russians.

And a Washington Insider, seated as the Attorney General of the United States of America, recusing himself from the whole thing.

Mr. President, if you and the First Lady are invited to go to the Ford Theatre before this whole plot plays out, please politely refuse.

I’m just sayin’.

Until He Comes,

With “Abolish Ice” Failing, Dems Now Pushing for Impeachment…Over What??!!

July 20, 2018

cheap-seat-600-li

He’s blowing up their very restrictive class distinctions. He’s blowing up the way they talk about things inside the Beltway. He’s blowing up diplomacy. He’s blowing up foreign relations. And it’s being done in a way these people can’t figure out. For the life of them, they can’t understand straight talk. To them, straight talk is thuggery, it’s insulting, and it’s mysterious. And so Trump is like an invader, an alien, and he’s gotta go. – Rush Limbaugh, “The Rush Limbaugh Radio Program”, 7/19/18

FoxNews.com reports that

Liberal lawmakers and pundits, emboldened by bipartisan outrage over President Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, have kicked up calls to pursue impeachment — indicating the issue could fast become the next litmus test for Democratic candidates.

The discussion follows the recent political frenzy over calls to “abolish” Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). That effort briefly served as a similar litmus test in the wake of Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy, which led to family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The GOP-controlled House countered on Wednesday with a vote on a resolution expressing support for ICE, effectively daring Democrats to go on the record with opposition to the agency. The measure passed, with a total of 133 Democratic representatives voting “present” — amounting to a procedural refusal to take a position despite weeks of heated anti-ICE rhetoric from party leaders.

But where abolishing ICE fizzled for now as a progressive cause, the impeachment controversy could have sturdier legs. At the least, it has forced Democratic leaders to confront and carefully manage pressure from the base.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., on Tuesday charged that Trump’s remarks in Helsinki, Finland, were “nothing short of treason” and marked a “dark day” in American history.

Hoyer characterized impeachment, though, as a “distraction,” while still keeping the door open for the process in the future. “There will be time enough to deal with other issues and oversight of the president’s performance when we take back control of the House of Representatives,” he said.

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., a member of the House Judiciary Committee, toed the same line on Monday.

“I think that’s premature at this point — we should do all we can to make sure that he’s held accountable, that we conduct the investigations the Republicans have been unwilling to do,” Swalwell said in an interview with The Hill.

“If impeachment is the case,” he added, “it’s because we found impenetrable evidence that we take to the American people and will be accepted by both Republicans and Democrats.”

Elsewhere, the calls are getting louder.

Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan all but endorsed impeachment when he tweeted that “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors'” and was “nothing short of treasonous.”

Ron Fein, with Free Speech for People, wrote in The Washington Post that while Trump’s conduct might not rise to the level of treason, “it might still be impeachment-worthy regardless.”

In perhaps the most dramatic sign that the impeachment fight may go mainstream, Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke — he is running to unseat GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in November in the deep-red, pro-Trump state — has both advocated impeaching Trump and downplayed the Democratic consequences of such an effort.

“Impeachment, much like an indictment, shows that there is enough there for the case to proceed,” O’Rourke said this week, “and at this point there is certainly enough there for the case to proceed.”

Really? What, exactly?

The fact that he misspoke in Helsinki? Big hairy deal.

“But…but…RUSSIAN COLLUSION!!!”

Prove it. Mueller hasn’t.

The fact that he tweets too much?

He is bypassing the Main Stream Media, just like Ronald Reagan did.

The fact that he wants to place a wall on our Southern Border?

The majority of Americans want him to.

Or, is it because he is actually allowing ICE to do their jobs and they are deporting some of your future Democratic Voters?

They should have come here legally.

The fact that he is allowing Obamacare to collapse on its own?

It was failing before he won the 2016 Presidential Election.

Perhaps you would like to impeach President Trump over the fact that he supports our Armed Forces and he wants them to be better equipped than our enemies?

Over the past several years, under a Democratic President, our Brightest and Best were used as guinea pigs in social experimentation for your political causes.

Perhaps you guys are upset because his Foreign Policy of America First is working?

I thought you guys were in the Congress of the United States of America, not the United Nations.

Perhaps you’re upset that we have such a gracious, classy First Lady who speaks 6 languages and who represents her husband and our nation so well at home and abroad?

In the cellphone sales business, that’s called an “UPGRADE”.

I know what it is that you want to impeach him over!!!

He beat Hillary Clinton on November 8, 2016 for the Presidency of the United States of America despite the best efforts of the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice and FBI Hierarchy and all of George Soros’ money that was spent on “Astroturf Protests”.

Sorry, Skippy.

The fact that you guys in the Far Left Democratic Party are a bunch of undereducated, immature, poor losers whose entire Political Platform is composed of nothing but hate for President Donald J. Trump is NOT grounds for Impeachment.

Keep on pulling away ideologically from average Americans and the Democratic Party will be destined to go the way of the Whigs. (Look it up, if you guys haven’t taken them out of the history books, also.)

And, when this push for Impeachment fails, please don’t try a “Russian” Revolution.

Average Americans still proudly cling to our Bibles and guns.

And, you guys don’t even know which restroom to use.

Poll Shows Highest Number of Americans Satisfied With Country’s Direction Since 2005

June 20, 2018

mad-man-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

More Americans are satisfied with the direction of the country than at any point in the past 12 years, according to a new Gallup poll.

The poll, which was released Monday, shows that 38 percent of respondents are “satisfied with the way things are going,” the highest number since 2005.

“The satisfaction rate, which Gallup has measured at least monthly since 2001, has now topped 35% three times this year — a level reached only three times in the previous 12 years (once each in 2006, 2009 and 2016),” the report says.

Gallup noted that the rise in satisfaction over the past two months comes amid a spate of positive economic news, including the shrinking of the unemployment rate and the continuation of an economic expansion.

Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said Democrats are “running scared” from the strong economic numbers, because they can see that support for President Trump is growing.

She noted that some recent polls show Trump’s approval rating growing among millennials, which she attributed to young people who have been shut out of the job market believing in Trump and Republicans’ economic message.

“Democrats need to be scared, because those numbers are guaranteeing him a second term,” McEnany said.

But…but…how can this be?

I mean, if you watch Cable News Trump should be the most hated man in America.

Between the accusations of “Russian Collusion” and “Concentration Camps” and “separated families” on our Southern Border, he should be as unpopular as Rosie O’Donnell at an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.

But then again, according to those same news outlets, Hillary Clinton should be president, as there was no way the American Voters were going to elect Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America.

If there was any doubt in your minds before, gentle readers, the past several days clearly show that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.

The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.

So far, Mueller and his team of Trump-hating Democratic Donors poorly masquerading as impartial investigators, are failing miserably.

They have handed down 2 indictments for “offenses” which were not even a part of Trump’s Presidential Campaign or the first year of his presidency.

With Mueller’s Investigation blowing up around them, now the Democrats are trying to sabotage Trump with charges that he is purposefully separating children from their parents at the border, oblivious to the fact that it has been a practice since Democrats held the White House.

However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President is succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.

The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.

And, average Americans are loving it.

The fact is, the Democrats on Capitol Hill remain out-of-touch with average Americans.

They have learned nothing at all from their year and one half out of power.

For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” has been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.

Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.

However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.

Democrats are too ensconced is their own belief system which states that…

  1. Americans are “jingoistic”.
  2. America is responsible for all of the world’s ills.
  3. The evils of American Capitalism are responsible for the world’s climate, not the God of Abraham.
  4. Perversion is perfectly normal.
  5. They ARE “The Smartest People in the Room”.

There are many more “Tenets of Faith” that the Democrats believe. However, for the sake of brevity, I will move on.

Years ago, the Democratic Party and reality took divergent paths.

Unless they can find their way back to reality, their political party is destined to go the way of the Whigs.

Considering their fondness for relative morality, situational ethics, and purposeful obtuseness, perhaps they should keep traveling the path that they are presently on…attempting to find something…ANYTHING to impeach President Trump on.

Their party’s slow, painful demise will be great for the Popcorn Industry….

and America.

Pass the salt and butter, please.

Hillary Quotes Bible About “Separated Children”…No, Really

June 19, 2018

hillary-clinton-covfefe

Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice—not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. – Hillary Clinton, “Women in the Word Summit”, April 2015

Average Americans have all known for sometime that this is not our fathers’ Democratic Party. Conservatives have been driven out and “Moderates” are an endangered species.

Today’s Democrats embrace a Far Left Political Ideology, in which there is no room for a Supreme Being…until they need to reference Him for political leverage and justification.

Don’t believe me?

FoxNews.com reports that

Hillary Clinton on Monday slammed the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” border policy that has left hundreds of children separated from their parents, calling it a “moral and humanitarian crisis.”

Speaking at a women’s event in New York, the former secretary of state said President Trump’s claim that breaking apart adults and their children who enter the U.S. illegally is a law instilled by Democrats is “an outright lie.”

Her remarks at the Women’s Forum of New York awards lunch were followed up by a tweet on Monday afternoon in which Clinton said: “Every parent who has ever held a child in their arms, every human behind with a sense of compassion and decency, should be outraged.”

Clinton also took a swipe at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who, on Thursday, cited the Bible to defend the border policy, and added that recent criticisms were not “fair or logical and some are contrary to law.”

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order,” Sessions said. “Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.”

Clinton said that “those who selectively use the Bible to justify this cruelty are ignoring a central tenet of Christianity.”

“I’ve studied the bible, both the Old and the New Testament,” the 2016 presidential candidate said. “What is being done using the name of religion is contrary to everything I was ever taught.”

She invoked her own quote from the Bible — Matthew 19:14 — in response, saying that “Jesus said suffer the little children unto me. He did not say let the children suffer.”

Clinton added that former First Lady Laura Bush’s sentiments published Sunday in an op-ed for The Washington Post, in which she referred to the the administration’s policy as “cruel” and “immoral” and it “breaks [her] heart, are “absolutely right.”

First, as I wrote in a post published yesterday, President Barack Hussein Obama separated illegal immigrant children from their families during his use of ATEP.

So, Hillary is actually the one who told an outright lie, which is nothing unusual for her.

Somehow, Hillary and other vocal members of the Far left Democratic Party somehow believe that they can appeal to the Christian Faith of average Americans and somehow gain a political advantage in both the upcoming 2018 Midterm Elections and their ongoing effort to undermine the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

The problem with this strategy is one of their own making.

After President Barack Hussein Obama took office, he made a point of stating several times that America was not just a Christian nation anymore.

And, while that remains true to a certain extent, it is also true that the overwhelming majority, 75% of Americans still proclaim themselves to be followers of Jesus Christ. And even beyond that, 92% of Americans still believe in God.

What is amazing to me, though, is how American Christianity is still constantly attacked by Liberals such as Hillary on all fronts:  militarily, culturally, and even within organized religion, itself.

From illegal immigration to abortion to homosexual “rights”, Americans who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ on these issues have been under fire by Liberals, who insist that they know more about what is in the Bible and what Christ says, or would say, about these topics, then those of us who actually read God’s Word.

Claiming to be wise, they became fools. – Romans 1:22

When you enter into a Facebook “discussion” with these “new Pharisees”, and you counter their arguments on these topics with Scripture, Liberals are initially slow to respond.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16 ESV 

Most Liberals will start “Googling” these topics, looking for any Scriptures that will substantiate their position.

There’s been many a time they have come back at me with Old Testament Scripture. It is then that I explain to them about the sacrifice that Christ made for us sinners, freeing Christians from Jewish Law and taking the punishment for our sins , creating a New Covenant by covering Christians through the shedding of His blood.

At that point in the “discussion”, there is a long pause, as they are trying to figure out a comeback.

The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.- 1 Corinthians 2:14

This misconception, which I have been trying to explain, involves Liberals’ belief that American Christians will not fight back against them and the things they want to do in our society.

If there’s one thing during all of the years of anti-Christian bias, which we have experienced during the Obama administration, and now, more than a year and a half after Christian Americans helped elect American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump as the 45th President, that the Liberals should have learned, is the fact that Christian American Conservatives will fight back.

It is funny though…that when we begin fighting back, the Liberals have a tendency to label us as uncaring, mean , divisive, and intolerant.

Liberals react that way because internally, they are having a kicking and screaming temper tantrum, because they cannot get their way…as the days since November 8th, 2016 have plainly showed.

For Liberal Democrats such as Hillary Clinton to now attempt to use the God of Abraham as a Spokesperson and Arbiter against an immigration policy which they created, in order to oppose the presidency of President Trump, after turning their back on God for years, is a display of hypocrisy that would had made even the ancient Pharisees blush.

In fact, their desperation reminds me of a passage found in the New Testament,

22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ – Matthew 7:22-23

Hillary and the Democrats , as polls published the last few days are showing, are hurting no one but themselves.

They remain oblivious to the fact that one must always be careful…because when you point a finger at someone, there are always four pointing back at you.

With IG Report #2 On The Way, It’s Time For Mueller To “Put Up or Shut Up”

June 16, 2018

 

bad-cops-600a-ci

LMTOnline.com reports that

…The clamor over the watchdog’s findings was the latest turn in the GOP’s increasingly hostile and preemptive offensive against Mueller’s expected report on the president’s conduct. And the furor is almost tailor-made for Trump, who throughout his career has clutched onto small details and controversy as weapons he uses to define his enemies and erode trust in institutions.

Particularly notable, from the perspective of Trump’s allies, was the searing criticism in the report reserved for the conduct of one of Trump’s most high-profile critics, former FBI director James Comey, as well as the revelation that lead FBI agent Peter Strzok had shown anti-Trump bias. “We’ll stop it,” Strzok wrote in a text message, referring to Trump’s presidential campaign.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the report “reaffirmed the president’s suspicions about Comey’s conduct and about the political bias of some members of the FBI.”

On Capitol Hill, there was an outcry. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a Trump ally, said on Thursday he would support a new federal probe of Mueller’s special counsel investigation. “You’re going to need independent eyes,” he told reporters.

Democrats, as they have for months, sought to defend the sanctity of the special counsel’s inquiry. They said Mueller’s mission should not be attacked because FBI agents behaved inappropriately.

“None of this reflects on the special counsel’s work,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, Calif., ranking Democrat of the House Intelligence Committee.

Republicans, however, sought to use the report to tarnish investigators.

Since the Strzok text message had not been previously disclosed to Congress, a number of Republicans immediately asked whether the Justice Department had purposefully hidden that missive from them.

Republican Reps. Andy Biggs, Ariz., Matt Gaetz, Fla., Ron DeSantis, Fla., – all Trump supporters – sent the Justice Department a letter Thursday demanding that the inspector general turn over all previous reports to see if “people may have changed the report in a way that obfuscates your findings.”

So, what is the “mission of the Special Counsel and his “13 angry Democrats”, Rep. Schiff?

Wasn’t the Russia Probe formed to find evidence of Russian interference on behalf of the Trump Campaign in the 2016 Presidential Election?

Well, the House Investigative Committee has already ruled that there was no collusion.

And, Special Counsel Mueller has stated that President Trump is not a target in the investigation.

So, what is the purpose of the Special Council and his Lynch Mob’s continued existence?

Is it to find something…ANYTHING…with which to impeach the 45th President of the United States of America…simply because Americans in “Flyover Country” elected him as President instead of “The Chosen One II”, Hillary Clinton?

Or, is the purpose of the Investigation simply to provide enough interference so that Trump cannot fulfill his Campaign Promises and will be seen as a failed President, ensuring a Democratic Victory in 2020?

Well, considering the enormous success of his first 500 days in office, I think you’ve got about as much chance succeeding at ever of those as Rosie O’Donnell has of being on the front cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition (try unseeing that).

So, Rep. Shiff, considering that only a minority of Americans supported Mueller’s Investigation before the IG’s Report and one of his investigators is one of those FBI Agents singled out for possible legal consequences, and with the IG Report on the Russia Probe on the horizon, don’t you think that it is time for Special Counsel Mueller to “put up or shut up”?

Lord knows, us “rubes” out here in “Flyover Country” certainly do.

Soros’ Candidates Lose in California, But They Were Just the Tip of The Iceberg

June 11, 2018

untitled (243)

With such a big week ahead for us as Americans, featuring our President’s historical meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un and the Inspector General’s Report on the activities of Hillary Clinton, et all, due out on Thursday, one might think, judging from Trump’s continuous rise in the popularity polls, that we, as Americans, are well on our way to “Make America Great Again”.

Unfortunately, there remains a speed bump in the road again.

The following information comes courtesy of an article titled “Billionaire George Soros faces renewed attacks with defiance” which first appeared WashingtonPost.com

…Earlier this year, Patrick Gaspard, the former Obama White House political director who now runs Soros’ Open Society Foundations, said he asked the billionaire how he viewed the organization’s role at a time when so much of Soros’ work is under assault.

“This is the moment we were built for,” Soros responded, according to Gaspard.

The Hungarian-born Soros, who became one of the world’s wealthiest people by managing hedge funds and betting on currency changes, has given away billions of dollars to groups promoting human rights, democracy and liberal causes.

His New York-based Open Society Foundations now spends $940 million a year in 100 countries, promoting values such as free speech and free elections, according to the group. In the United States, the Open Society spends $150 million a year financing groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.

For a period of time, Soros was the largest private donor in Russia, funding initiatives such as an anti-torture program, according to the foundation. Two years ago, Putin’s government effectively banned Soros’ group from distributing funds in the country, calling it “undesirable” and “a threat to the fundamentals of the constitutional system.”

Last week, Putin suggested that Soros’s spending around the world resembles the kind of political interference that U.S. intelligence officials blame on Russia.

“He intervenes in things all over the world,” Putin told Austrian television. “But the State Department will tell you that it has nothing to do with that, that this is the personal business of Mr. Soros.”

Elsewhere in Europe, Soros has also come under attack. This year, Viktor Orban, the right-wing prime minister of Hungary, won reelection after charging that Soros wanted to flood Europe with Muslim immigrants. Orban said one of his first efforts would be to pass a “Stop Soros” bill, aimed at cracking down on organizations he views as countering his agenda.

“I’m painfully aware that they are against the ideas that I stand for,” Soros said of his critics around the world.

In the United States, Soros was initially seen as an ally by Republicans who shared his opposition to communist dictators. He made modest donations to support the GOP in the 1980s and 1990s, according to campaign finance reports.

But he turned decisively against Republicans after President George W. Bush invaded Iraq in 2003 based on faulty intelligence about weapons of mass destruction.

Since then, his political spending – a fraction of the money he gives away every year – has made him one of the Democratic Party’s most reliable and generous donors.

In 2016, he poured at least $25 million into mobilizing Democratic voters in an effort to bolster Clinton and other candidates on the left, a Soros spokesman said.

…This cycle, Soros has focused his political investments on congressional races and mobilizing voters on the left. His largest donation this year has been $5 million to Win Justice, a voter-mobilization group focused on minorities, women and young voters in Florida, Michigan and Nevada.

He has also continued to invest in district attorney races, saying prosecutors are “the linchpin of the judicial system” and key to his effort to reduce prison sentences. He sent $1.45 million to a group that supported civil rights attorney Larry Krasner in his successful race for Philadelphia district attorney last year. A spokesman said Krasner had never met Soros or anyone in his organization.

Soros’ recent efforts in California were not so successful. Three of his candidates for district attorney in California lost their primaries, and a fourth faces a runoff.

His financial support became a political issue in some of the campaigns. Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert, who defeated her challenger Tuesday, claimed that the city was “under attack” from the billionaire, “who has brought his war against law enforcement” to Sacramento.

The breadth of Soros’ spending has made him a frequent target of critics on the right, who suggest he is secretly backing movements that appear to be driven by the grass roots.

Former congressman Jack Kingston, a Georgia Republican who is a CNN commentator, suggested on Twitter in February that Soros and other activists, rather than students, were behind a protest in the wake of a Florida high school shooting in which a gunman killed 17 people.

A spokesman said Soros had no involvement with the protest.

Actually, he did.

Remember the National School Walkout?

Last Year, Feminist Writer Asri Q. Normani of The New York Times reported concerning the funding for the “Women’s March on Washington” that

Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, a march “partner,” told me his organization was “nonpartisan” but has “many concerns about the incoming Trump administration that include what we see as a misogynist approach to women.” Nick Fish, national program director of the American Atheists, another march partner, told me, “This is not a ‘partisan’ event.” Dennis Wiley, pastor of Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ, another march “partner,” returned my call and said, “This is not a partisan march.”

Really? UniteWomen.org, another partner, features videos with the hashtags #ImWithHer, #DemsInPhily and #ThanksObama. Following the money, I pored through documents of billionaire George Soros and his Open Society philanthropy, because I wondered: What is the link between one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors and the “Women’s March”?

I found out: plenty.

By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

Have you ever noticed how secretive the inner workings of the groups who are financed by the Puppet Master George Soros are?

It is reminiscent of the history of secretive meetings held by Lenin and his Bolsheviks before the Russian Revolution. Or those held by Germany’s National Socialist Party before the Beer Hall Putsch.

As was the case in both of these examples, any “Democratic Socialist” nation we see around our Modern World, went through a course-altering revolution, whether through a violent overthrow of the Government or through a “radical change” in the political ideology of their nation and the way that their populace voted in the subsequent election.

I firmly believe that the mission of George Soros, from the moment he landed on our shores to this very day, has been exactly what his political puppet, Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama, said that his was during his first presidential campaign: to “radically change” our nation into something that every patriotic American will no longer recognize.

America’s Alt-Left, which President Trump identified by name during the “Press Conference” which shall forever be known as the “Trump Tower Thrashing” is a generation of radicalized young people, who grew up during the Obama Administration being funded by those who wish to “radically change” America and who have been programmed by “Organizing for America”, Liberal College Professors, and a pop culture which told them that to love America and to respect her history and those who had gone before them, was “”jingoistic”.

They were told that it was evil to try to be better than others….to achieve and make their own way.

They were told that everyone “should be equal” and those who do achieve should “share the wealth”.

This programming led these young minds full of mush to become the “useful idiots” (as Communists used to call their dupes in the Cold War) whom we have been watching on television as they attack America’s History, our Constitutional method of deciding our leaders, and our duly elected President.

Add to that the rights of American citizens being granted to illegal aliens by Democrat Operatives, Un-vetted Radical Muslim “Refugees” pouring in by the thousands, and Soros’ covert and overt support of perpetually grieved protesters, paid to stage organized demonstrations which morph into riots, and the Alt-Left, through funding by Soros, Communist Organizations, and other sources, and it all adds up to America having to deal with our own version of Lenin’s Bolsheviks, holding meetings in secret because they know better than to allow the true motives of their political philosophy to be made public.

That is why the election of Donald J. Trump to the Presidency was so very important.

And, why the defeat of Soros’ California Democratic Candidates for the 2018 Mid-Term Elections is a very good sign.

Someone must stand in the way of George Soros and these “New Bolsheviks”, before history repeats itself on this side of the Atlantic, over 100 years later.

America’s survival as a free nation depends on it.

Americans Approve of Trump’s Economic Policy, Think Trump Can Make Good NK Deal

June 8, 2018

day-500-600-li

“We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.” – President Donald J. Trump – 2017 State of the Union Address

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump’s overall job rating is holding steady, buoyed by a record number approving of his handling of the economy. A Fox News poll released Thursday also finds that most like that he’s meeting with North Korea.

……A strong jobs report released June 1 showed the U.S. with a seasonally adjusted 3.8 percent unemployment rate. The president seems to get some credit for that. His handling of the economy brings his most positive job ratings, as a record 52 percent approve, while 41 percent disapprove.

There was a bump in economic optimism when Trump first took office: the number feeling optimistic went from 49 percent (January 2016) to 66 percent (January 2017). Now, that number sits at 59 percent. Since his inauguration, optimism is up 19 percentage points among Republicans, down 31 points among Democrats, and holding steady among independents.

Optimism is increasing on North Korea, as more voters now think it could be convinced to give up its nuclear weapons. Twenty-eight percent feel that way, up 12 points from 16 percent three months ago (March 2018). Still, a majority, 60 percent, says North Korea won’t let go of its nukes.

By a narrow margin, voters think war with North Korea is less likely than it was two years ago (33 percent less likely, 28 percent more likely, 35 percent the same), and most approve of the president meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un (66-24 percent).

More expect Trump (40 percent) than Kim (30 percent) to negotiate the “better deal.”

“Americans have mixed feelings on North Korea. They want the U.S. to negotiate with Kim Jong Un even though they doubt the North Koreans would ever concede on the main sticking point between our countries: nuclear weapons,” says Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducts the Fox News poll with Democrat Chris Anderson.

“They also seem to think President Trump might be able to get a good deal, even though no one has a clue as to what that deal might entail.”

…The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,001 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from June 3-6, 2018. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.

Trump has delivered what he promised: a stronger economy and more jobs.

Americans are more concerned with providing for themselves and their families than they are with the silly “Social Justice Warrior” Political Games which the Democratic Party, which is being run by the Far Left, continues to play.

Quite frankly, the reason that Obama Presidency did not move our economy forward, like President Trump is in the process of doing, is because Obama was more concerned about growing the Central Government, than he was about growing American Production by freeing the job creators from punitive tax rates, in order to encourage the growth that will revitalize our economy.

That is why I once spent 6 hours on a Saturday, on the phone with Punjab from Calcutta about my Comcast Cable Box, which was on the fritz.

But, I digress…

Make no mistake, granting amnesty to millions of unskilled, underage illegal aliens would have done and still would do nothing for the health of our economy.

This action would simply provide future voters for the Democrat Party, which is now, as I wrote earlier, firmly in the control of the Far Left.

A popular Liberal Defense that was going around during Obama’s Presidency was the claim that President Ronald Reagan actually had a bigger Federal Government than Obama.

The funny part is: It’s true.

It was larger because President Reagan, through his sound Economic Policy, actually increased tax revenues.

American Production rose, therefore, TAX REVENUES INCREASED.

Yes, “Trickle-Down Economics”, “trickled up”, allowing for a well-funded, strong American Military and Administration.

You see, boys and girls, that’s the secret of American Exceptionalism, a concept that Obama always gave lip service to, but, clearly, never believed in.

For America to prosper, we must remain free. For America to remain free, we must be prosperous.

American Capitalism is the engine which drives a strong, vibrant economy. American Capitalism is the result of the courageous Entrepreneurial Spirit of American Citizens. The same “Can Do” attitude which led to Western Expansion and triumphs against those before-mentioned enemies, foreign and domestic.

Now, as far as President Trump’s success in his dealings with “Little Rocket Man” and North Korea, what did the Democrats expect would happen when average Americans elected an American Businessman who had written a book titled “The Art of the Deal”?

President Trump is also a great judge of talent. His selection of Mike Pompeo as the new Secretary of State was brilliant.

Through hard work and intuitive, decisive leadership, The Trump Administration is on the verge of making history in regards to a possible denuclearization of North Korea, something that was previously thought to be impossible to accomplish.

It would have been, except Americas did not elect another politician.

Americans elected a Citizen Statesman with Real World Experience who is not afraid to remind those whom he is negotiating with that he has the enormous firepower of the United States Armed Forces to back him up in Foreign Policy Negotiations, as the world saw when Kim Jong Un decided to come back to the negotiating table.

President Trump is succeeding as President because of his ability to focus on the challenges he faces and to come up with innovative, common-sense solutions.

His popularity continues to rise dues to average Americans’ appreciation of a President who puts America first.

And as Trump continues on his mission to Make American Great Again, as the Democrats have to contribute is hate and divisiveness.

And, that is not an election-winning Party Platform to run on.

Clinton Says Impeachment Hearings Would Be Underway If a Dem Was President

June 4, 2018

monica-lewinsky-bill-clinton-2

 

FoxNews.com reports that

Former President Bill Clinton argued Sunday that impeachment hearings would already be in full swing if a Democrat were in the Oval Office and if the special counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election were as deep as it is now.

“I think if the roles were reversed — now, this is me just talking, but it’s based on my experience — if it were a Democratic president, and these facts were present, most people I know in Washington believe impeachment hearings would have begun already,” Clinton told “CBS Sunday Morning.”

Clinton, who appeared alongside James Patterson to promote the political thriller “The President is Missing” that the two penned together, noted that these are “serious issues” that the country is facing.

So far, the special counsel’s investigation, which is headed up by former FBI director Robert Mueller, has charged 19 people – including three former campaign aides of President Trump – along with three companies, and has received five guilty pleas. Perhaps the most high-profile of those guilty pleas came from Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Clinton, whose wife, Hillary, lost the 2016 election to Trump, is no stranger to impeachment hearings. After a lengthy investigation by independent counsel Ken Starr, the Republican-controlled House in 1998 voted to impeach Clinton for perjury and obstruction of justice in relation to the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Clinton, however, was acquitted of both the perjury and obstruction of justice charges when the impeachment trial went to the Senate.

During the interview with CBS, Clinton also blasted Trump for the president’s bombastic style and his use of nicknames to poke fun at political opponents. Trump labeled Florida Sen. Marco Rubio “Little Marco” and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz “Lyin’ Ted” during the 2016 campaign season, has referred to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as “little rocket man” and continues to refer to Clinton’s wife as “Crooked Hillary.”

“I don’t like all this. I couldn’t be elected anything now ​be​cause I just don’t like embarrassing people​,” Bill Clinton said. “My mother would have whipped me for five days in a row when I was a little boy if I spent all my time badmouthing people like this.”

While the former president said that the press would have been just as “hard, or harder” in covering a Democratic president, he did defend the media against Trump habit of labelling certain news outlets as “Fake News.”

“I think they have tried by and large to cover this investigation based on the facts,” Clinton said.

Don’t you just love it?

Bill “Bubba” Clinton is now THE Moral Arbiter.

Back in the Bill Clinton era, White House advisor Betsey Wright coined the term “bimbo eruptions” to describe a long list of presi­den­tial gal pals.

BIll “Bubba” Clinton’s Bimbo List” includ­ed, but is not limit­ed to (I’m sure) Jennifer Flowers, Former Miss Ameri­ca Eliza­beth Ward, Paul Corbin Jones, and, of course, Monica Lewin­sky.

The Lewin­sky scandal was a sensa­tion that enveloped the presi­den­cy of Bill Clinton in 1998–99, leading to his impeach­ment by the U.S. House of Repre­sen­ta­tives and acquit­tal by the Senate.

Paula Corbin Jones, a former Arkansas state worker who claimed that Bill Clinton had accost­ed her sexual­ly in 1991 when he was gover­nor of Arkansas, had brought a sexual harass­ment lawsuit again­st the presi­dent. In order to show a pattern of behav­ior on Clinton’s part, Jones’s lawyers questioned sever­al women believed to have been engag­ing in sex  with him. On Jan. 17, 1998, Bubba took the stand, becom­ing the first sitting presi­dent to testi­fy as a civil defen­dant.

During this testi­mony, Clinton denied having had an affair with Monica S. Lewin­sky, an unpaid intern and later a paid staffer at the White House who worked in the White House from 1995–96. Lewin­sky had earlier, in a deposi­tion in the same case, also denied having such a relation­ship. Kenneth Starr, the indepen­dent counsel in the White­wa­ter case, had already received tape record­ings made by Linda R. Tripp (a former cowork­er of Lewinsky’s) of telephone conver­sa­tions in which Lewin­sky described her involve­ment with the presi­dent. Assert­ing that there was a “pattern of decep­tion,” Starr obtained from Attor­ney Gener­al Janet Reno permis­sion to inves­ti­gate the matter.

The presi­dent publicly denied having had a relation­ship with Lewin­sky and charges of cover­ing it up. His advis­er, Vernon Jordan, denied having counseled Lewin­sky to lie in the Jones case, or having arranged a job for her outside Washing­ton, to help cover up the affair. Hillary Clinton claimed that a “vast right-wing conspir­a­cy” was trying to destroy her husband, while Repub­li­cans and conser­v­a­tives portrayed him as immoral and a liar.

In March, Jordan and others testi­fied before Starr’s grand jury, and lawyers for Paula Jones released papers reveal­ing, among other things, that Clinton, in his January deposi­tion, had admit­ted to a sexual relation­ship in the 1980s with Arkansas enter­tain­er Gennifer Flowers, a charge he had long denied. In April, howev­er, Arkansas feder­al judge Susan Webber Wright dismissed the Jones suit, ruling that Jones’s story, if true, showed that she had been exposed to “boorish” behav­ior but not sexual harass­ment; Jones appealed.

In July, Starr grant­ed Lewin­sky immuni­ty from perjury charges, and Clinton agreed to testi­fy before the grand jury. He did so on Aug. 17, then went on televi­sion to admit the affair with Lewin­sky and ask for forgive­ness. In Septem­ber, Starr sent a 445-page report to the House of Repre­sen­ta­tives, recom­mend­ing four possi­ble grounds for impeach­ment: perjury, obstruc­tion of justice, witness tamper­ing, and abuse of author­i­ty.

On Dec. 19, Clinton became the second presi­dent (after Andrew Johnson) to be impeached, on two charges: perjury—in his Aug., 1998, testimony—and obstruc­tion of justice. The vote in the House was large­ly along party lines.

In Jan., 1999, the trial began in the Senate. On Feb. 12, after a trial in which testi­mony relat­ing to the charges was limit­ed, the Senate reject­ed both counts of impeach­ment. The perjury charge lost, 55–45, with 10 Repub­li­cans joining all 45 Democ­rats in voting again­st it; the obstruc­tion charge drew a 50–50 vote. Subse­quent­ly, on Apr. 12, Judge Wright, who had dismissed the Jones case, found the presi­dent in contempt for lying in his Jan., 1998, testi­mony, when he denied the Lewin­sky affair. In July, Judge Wright ordered the presi­dent to pay nearly $90,000 to Ms. Jones’s lawyers. On Jan. 19, 2001, the day before he left office, Presi­dent Clinton agreed to admit to giving false testi­mony in the Jones case and to accept a five-year suspen­sion of his law license and a $25,000 fine in return for an agree­ment by the indepen­dent counsel, Robert W. Ray (Starr’s succes­sor), to end the inves­ti­ga­tion and not prose­cute him.

In a later inter­view, Hillary claimed that Bill suffered child­hood abuse which may have caused him to philan­der­er and experi­ence “bimbo eruptions” later in life. She described her philan­der­ing husband as “a hard dog to keep on the porch”.

THIS is the guy who wants to judge President Donald J. Trump.

Which prompts the question:

IMPEACH TRUMP FOR WHAT???

The House Investigative Committee found no evidence of collusion and as Harvard Law Professor Emeritus (and Liberal) Alan Dershowitz explained in an interview with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on December 3, 2017…

I think if Congress ever were to charge him with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional authority under Article II, we’d have a constitutional crisis. You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire [former FBI Director] James Comey and his Constitutional authority to tell the Justice Department who to investigate, who not to investigate. That’s what Thomas Jefferson did, that’s what Lincoln did, that’s what Roosevelt did.

We have precedents that clearly establish that. When George Bush, the first, pardoned Casper Weinberger in order to end the investigation that would have led to him, nobody suggested obstruction of justice. For obstruction of justice by the president, you need clearly illegal acts. With Nixon, hush money paid. Telling people to lie. Destroying evidence.

Even with Clinton they said that he tried to influence potential witnesses not to tell the truth. But there’s never been a case in history where a president has been charged with obstruction of justice for merely exercising his constitutional authority. That would cause a constitutional crisis in the United States, and I hope Mueller doesn’t do that and Senator Feinstein simply doesn’t know what she’s talking about. When she says it’s obstruction of justice, to do what a president is completely authorized to do under the constitution.

A majority of the members of the House must vote for these charges in order to impeach the president. After the charges of misconduct are filed, the Senate has the power to try impeachment cases like a court. Two-thirds of the senators must vote for conviction.

With the congress being controlled by the Republicans, there is no way that President Donald Trump can be impeached unless his party can be convinced that he is guilty of impeachable offenses, qualifying charges that are undeniable.

And, after one year of Special Council Robert Mueller and his cadre of Democratic Donors investing Trump as if they were accountants with the IRS, they have found exactly two things: “diddly” and “squat”.

So, Former President Clinton, I hate to disappoint you, but the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump has done nothing to be impeached for.

I mean, it is not as if he used a smitten young intern as a humidor for his cigars during an extramarital fling.

By the way, Bubba. What would your mother have said about that?

Until He Comes,
