After Mueller: House Dem SJWs Begin to Call for Impeachment, Pelosi/Hoyer Say Not Worth It…Dem “Civil War” Looming?

April 19, 2019

 

AOC-TLAIB

FoxNews.com reports that

Hours after the Department of Justice on Thursday released a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez committed to adding her name to an impeachment resolution aimed at President Trump.

The New York Democrat revealed her intentions on Twitter, vowing to sign onto the resolution put forward by fellow freshman lawmaker Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., last month.

The proposal calls on the House Judiciary Committee to probe whether or not the president committed any offenses that rise to the level of impeachment.

In announcing her decision, Ocasio-Cortez addressed the report, writing it “is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President.”

“While I understand the political reality of the Senate + election considerations, upon reading this DoJ report, which explicitly names Congress in determining obstruction, I cannot see a reason for us to abdicate from our constitutionally mandated responsibility to investigate,” she wrote in a follow-up tweet.

The report showed that investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. Mueller, however, did not reach a conclusion on whether the president’s conduct amounted to obstruction, stating: “[W]hile this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Ocasio-Cortez continued on Twitter, explaining that she doesn’t often speak about the matter of impeachment and would rather focus her attention on other matters. But the report’s release brought the subject to the forefront, she argued.

“Many know I take no pleasure in discussions of impeachment. I didn’t campaign on it, & rarely discuss it unprompted,” she tweeted. “We all prefer working on our priorities: pushing Medicare for All, tackling student loans, & a Green New Deal.”

“But the report squarely puts this on our doorstep,” she wrote.

However, the Democratic House Leadership feels differently about the subject.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Thursday that nothing he saw in special counsel Robert Mueller s report would make seeking to impeach President Trump a “worthwhile” effort “at this point.”

Hoyer made the remarks to CNN’s Dana Bash following the Justice Department’s release of Mueller’s partially redacted findings in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. 

“Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point,” Hoyer told CNN. “Very frankly, there is an election in 18 months and the American people will make a judgment.”

…House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said recently that impeaching the president is “not worth” the political divisiveness it would bring to the country.

“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country,” Pelosi said in March.

The obsessive duo of Nadler and Schiff notwithstanding, could we be witnessing a Civil War growing between the Old Guard of the Democratic Party and the young Marxist Democratic Socialist Branch, led by AOC, Tlaib, and Omar over the future direction of the Democrat Majority House of Representatives?

I have written before that I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought with  superfluous Congressional Hearings attacking President Trump, anonymous sources, unproven baseless accusations, and the Vanguard of the Modern Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media.

It’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

This obsessive fascism which has become the engine which drives the Far Left Democratic Party is now on the verge of splitting that party wide open.

As the talking heads on the MSM lost their minds over the results of the Mueller Report yesterday while covering the grieving House Democrats, you can bet that the House Democrats were on the phone with one another, trying to figure out what to do now that they have been shown to be a bunch of lying fools who have been attempting to con the American Public into believing something that never happened for the last 2 and 1/2 years.

I am certain that the Democrat Leadership were asking each other, “How do we regain our credibility with the voters?”

However, the group of SJWs who believe differently from the Leadership, may or may not be few in number.

Regardless of what Speaker Pelosi has said, AOC’s fellow travelers may actually be bigger in number than her recent estimate of a group of 5.

Make no mistake, the Marxist “Social Justice Warrior” wing of the Democratic Party is not willing to let go their pipe dream of impeaching and removing from office President Trump, even if there is no Constitutional cause to do so.

If they do attempt to impeach President Trump, they will fail.

And, their Electoral Exile from the Oval Office will be just beginning.

If the Democratic Leadership allows the Marxist Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) like Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, and Omar to take control of the House of Representatives and their political party while embracing Radical Islam, anti-Semitism, and Marxism, while insisting on impeaching President Donald J. Trump, Pelosi and the rest of the “useful idiots” known as the House Democratic Leadership are dooming their political party to go the way of the Whigs.

House Dems Upset That AG Barr is Holding a Press Conference Before They Get Mueller Report

April 18, 2019

Would you like a Kleenex, Congressman Schiff?

FoxNews.com reports that

Democrats in Congress attacked Attorney General William Barr Wednesday evening ahead of the Justice Department’s planned release of a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Barr is set to hold a 9:30 a.m. news conference Thursday accompanied by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller investigation after the special counsel’s appointment in May 2017. Neither Mueller nor other members of his team will attend, according to special counsel spokesman Peter Carr. Democrats have criticized the timing of the news conference, saying that Barr would get to present his interpretation of the Mueller report before Congress and the public see it.

At a news conference Wednesday evening, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said the panel was expected to receive a copy of the report between 11 a.m. and noon, “well after the attorney general’s 9:30 a.m. press conference. This is wrong.”

“The attorney general appears to be waging a media campaign on behalf of President Trump, the very subject of the investigation at the heart of the Mueller report,” Nadler told reporters. “Rather than letting the facts of the report speak for themselves, the attorney general has taken unprecedented steps to spin Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation.”

Hakeem Jeffries, another member of the Judiciary Committee and the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, accused Barr — whom Jeffries dubbed the “so-called Attorney General” of “presiding over a dog and pony show.

“Here is a thought,” Jeffries added. “Release the Mueller report tomorrow morning and keep your mouth shut. You have ZERO credibility.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted that Barr “has thrown out his credibility & the DOJ’s independence with his single-minded effort to protect ⁦‪@realDonaldTrump⁩ above all else. The American people deserve the truth, not a sanitized version of the Mueller Report approved by the Trump Admin.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, “The process is poisoned before the report is even released.”

“Barr shouldn’t be spinning the report at all, but it’s doubly outrageous he’s doing it before America is given a chance to read it,” Schumer added.

Democrats were further angered Wednesday by a New York Times report which said Justice Department officials have had “numerous conversations with White House lawyers” about Mueller’s conclusions, which have aided the president’s legal team as it prepares a rebuttal to the special counsel’s report. The Times report has not been independently confirmed by Fox News.

Late Wednesday, Nadler and four other Democratic committee chairs released a joint statement calling on Barr to cancel the Thursday morning news conference, calling it “unnecessary and inappropriate.”

“He [Barr] should let the full report speak for itself, read the statement from Nadler, Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Elijah Cummings, D-Md., Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and Eliot Engel, D-N.Y. “The Attorney General should cancel the press conference and provide the full report to Congress, as we have requested. With the Special Counsel’s fact-gathering work concluded, it is now Congress’ responsibility to assess the findings and evidence and proceed accordingly.”

In court filings in the case against Roger Stone on Wednesday, the Justice Department also said it planned to provide a “limited number” of members of Congress and their staff access to a copy of the Mueller report with fewer redactions than the public version.

Nadler claimed Wednesday evening that the Judiciary Committee “has no knowledge of this and this should not be read as any agreement or knowledge or assent on our part.”

Nadler added that he would “probably find it useful” to call Mueller and members of his team to testify after reading the version of the report Barr releases.

The report is expected to reveal what Mueller uncovered about ties between the Trump campaign and Russia that fell short of criminal conduct. And, it likely will lay out the special counsel’s conclusions about formative episodes in Trump’s presidency, including his firing of FBI Director James Comey; his request of Comey to end an investigation into Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn; his relentless badgering of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his recusal from the Russia investigation; and his role in drafting an explanation about a meeting his oldest son took at Trump Tower with a Kremlin-connected lawyer.

The report is not expected to place the president in legal jeopardy, as Barr made his own decision that Trump shouldn’t be prosecuted for obstruction. But it is likely to contain unflattering details about the president’s efforts to control the Russia investigation

Overall, Mueller brought charges against 34 people — including six Trump aides and advisers — and revealed a sophisticated, wide-ranging Russian effort to influence the 2016 presidential election. Twenty-five of those charged were Russians accused either in the hacking of Democratic email accounts or of a hidden but powerful social media effort to spread disinformation online.

Five former Trump aides or advisers pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate in Mueller’s investigation, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. Stone is awaiting trial on charges including false statements and obstruction.

I am shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

How dare Attorney General Barr hold a press conference before allowing Congress to see the redacted Mueller Report.

Why…why…it is almost as if he is the top legal authority in America…or something.

Doesn’t he know that the Legislative Branch actually governs our Sovereign Nation and not the Executive Branch?

After all, Speaker of the House Pelosi has been telling everyone who will listen, including our European Allies, that she is the president’s co-equal.

Even though she’s not.

Seriously, have you ever seen a bunch of unscrupulous political hacks attempt to make something out of nothing simply because they are sore losers?

The entire country has figured out that President Trump did not “collude” with the Russians.

The neverending bad behavior of the Democrats reminds me of the old saying

If your enemy is digging himself a hole, hand him another shovel.

Let them rant.

Congress already has horrible popularity poll numbers. Instead of continuing to try to undo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election, shouldn’t they actually be trying to pass laws to improve the lives of the American People?

I guess not. That would be too much like “right”.

Yesterday, I saw a Fox News Poll in which 4 out of 10 Americans believed that the Trump Campaign was spied upon by the FBI and DOJ under the Obama Administration.

What are the House Democrats going to do when AG Barr begins that investigation, as he has promised to?

Tell him that he can’t?

Good luck with that.

Today and the days to follow should be very interesting.

Pass the popcorn.

Pelosi Claims Socialism “Not the View of the Democratic Party” …Really?

April 15, 2019

pelosimainvideo-1828742-640x360

FoxNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tried to tamp down the perceived influence of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive freshman Democrats, saying their wing in Congress was “like five people.”

Speaking with CBS News’ Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes,” Pelosi said the 29-year-old congresswoman from New York didn’t have a significant impact on the Democratic Party. The House speaker also said she rejected socialism “as an economic system.”

“You have these wings, AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl told Pelosi, to which the 79-year-old replied: “That’s like five people.”

“No, it’s the progressive group, it’s more than five,” the interviewer pushed back. Pelosi contended that she herself is a progressive.

The speaker added that she believes Congressional Democrats “by and large … know that we have to hold the center, that we have to go down the mainstream,” and said she “reject[s] socialism as an economic system.”

“If people have that view, that’s their view,” she said. “That is not the view of the Democratic Party.”

When pressed on whether Congress has been productive, she said Democrats regained control of the House only three months ago, and that things were moving. She added: “The power of the Speaker is awesome.”

Once again, Speaker of the House Pelosi overestimates herself.

How could the views of AOC and her fellow travelers NOT be the view of the Democratic Party?

Their Party Chairman, Tom Perez, is a Far Left Hispanic Political Activist.

And every piece that they have proposed since Trump took office has been from a Far Left political viewpoint.

The Democrats have been advocating “Democratic Socialism” for quite a while now.

San Fran Nan is attempting to somehow combat Trump’s rising popularity and their tanking favorability ratings.

The past two years have clearly shown 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.

And now,  with Mueller and his team of Trump-hating Democratic Donors failing to find any proof of Russian Collusion and no actionable proof of obstruction, veteran Democrats like Pelosi realize that claiming that they are actually “Moderates” may be the only way to keep their party from going the way of the Whigs.

However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President keeps on 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.

Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.

And, average Americans are loving it.

They learned nothing at all during their 2 years 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.

And, simply declaring themselves to be “Moderates” is not going to cut it.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have 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.

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

and America.

And, judging from their lack of accomplishments thus far, the Pelosi-led House of Representatives is going to do nothing to halt the Dem’s downward descent into oblivion.

Pass the salt and butter, please.

Ilhan Omar -“Some People Did Something”…You’re Darned Skippy They Did and Americans Will Never Forget It

April 14, 2019

omar-pass-600-li

Per CBSNews.com

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the president “shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack.” 

“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence,” she said in a statement released Saturday while in Germany visiting American troops.

“It is wrong for the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe,” she added. 

In some ways, it does not seem like it has been almost 18 years since the worst Terrorist Attack ever perpetrated on American soil.

In other ways, it seems like an eternity.

That horrible day was so surreal. It seemed to me like I was stuck in a nightmare.

Certainly this couldn’t be happening to us? We’re the greatest nation in the world. Who in their right mind, would dare attack the United States of America? Who would be brazen enough to attack us, using instruments of our own design? Who would actually dare flying planes into the Twin Towers, a living symbol of American Prosperity?

For that matter,. who would fly a plane into the Pentagon? The Seat of Power behind our nation’s awesome Military, the finest collection of Fighting Men and Women on Earth?

It was not a nightmare. It was a reality.

I remember seeing that first plane crash into the World Trade Center.

I remember the look of incredulity and panic on the faces of Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and E.D. Hill, as they watched from the set of Fox and Friends that fateful morning.

I remember the second plane on its approach, and the horrifying realization that this was no accident… that America was under attack. An attack, which turned out to have been planned and executed by Osama bin Laden, and a group of Saudi Arabians, members of the Muslim Terrorist Group, known as al-Qaeda.

I remember the images of Americans jumping out of windows to their certain death, rather than be consumed by the fires, raging around them.

I remember the sickening thud as they hit the pavement.

I remember the images of the brave NYC Policemen and Firemen as they rushed into the World Trade Center…never to return.

I remember watching the First Tower collapse…then, the second one.

I remember a heroic Mayor Rudy Giuliani, out in the middle of the devastation, doing whatever he could to get New Yorkers to safety.

I remember President George W. Bush coming on television, with a look of steely determination, as he announced that we would be avenged.

I remember him standing on that heap of rubble that used to be a part of the World Trade Center, side by side with that fireman, telling the assembled crowd, through his bullhorn, that “the world will hear from us”.

And, it did.

Here is the tragedy of 9/11/01, broken down by the numbers. Courtesy of nymag.com:

  • Estimated number of New Yorkers suffering from post-traumatic-stress disorder as a result of 9/11: 422,000

And, here we are, almost 18 years removed from that nightmarish day, with a President of the United States, who since taking office, has put those responsible for the scourge of Radical Islamic Terrorism on notice, in stark contrast to his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, who gave Iran the means to obliterate our nation in a flash of light and the dust of a mushroom cloud and, who was so disrespected by that very same nation that they not only taunted our warships and airplanes in the Persian Gulf with impunity, they boarded our vessels, kidnapping our sailors and holding them for ransom.

Under our current Commander-in-Chief that would have never happened. President Trump does not bow down to Radical Islamists as witnessed by yesterday’s closing of the Palestinian office in Washington, DC for their failure can negotiate a peace treaty with Israel.

During the days after 9/11/2001, political affiliation, race, gender, personal philosophy, did not matter.

WE WERE AMERICANS.

This country came together, in a way in which I had never before seen in my lifetime (which, is a pretty long time).

Now, look at us.

We have Radical Muslims (and Marxists) occupying seats in the House of Representatives and displaying their ignorance and disdain for our country.

Americans must continue to stand firm and to once again come together and let our “public servants” in the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C know that we stand against those who would embrace our enemies instead of serving our Sovereign Nation, as they were elected to do.

Those who left us on that September Morning so long ago, and to say a prayer for them and the Four Americans whom we lost on the grounds of a US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya, all those years later, deserve no less.

On September 11, 2001, Radical Islamists attacked us on our own soil and murdered over 3,000 Americans, and if given the opportunity, they will not hesitate to do it again.

We must not allow the Far Left ideologues of the modern Democratic Party any more opportunities to bring about “radical change” in America through the appeasement of our enemies which, under Obama, included pay-offs, acquiescence, and giving them the means of our nation’s destruction.

America was NEVER meant to be “just another country”.

We must stand united as a nation and continue to reclaim our heritage as “The Shining City Upon a Hill”.

Rep. Ilhan Omar must be censored and, if she does not apologize, she needs to lose her seat in Congress.

The lives lost on September 11, 2001…and September 11, 2012…demand it.

SpyGate: Barr Backlash…Methinks the Democrats Doth Protest Too Much

April 11, 2019

democrats-fume-william-barr-testimony-mueller-report

FoxNews.com reports that

Prominent Democrats lined up to hammer Attorney General Bill Barr for testifying Wednesday that federal authorities had spied on the Trump campaign in 2016, with one top House Democrat charging that Barr is not acting “in the best interest of the DOJ or the country.”

“I think spying did occur,” Barr said during the explosive hearing before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee. “The question is whether it was adequately predicated. …Spying on a political campaign is a big deal.”

Barr later clarified in the hearing: “I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred; I’m saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it, that’s all.”

Despite mounting evidence that the FBI pursued an array of efforts to gather intelligence from within the Trump campaign — and the fact that the FBI successfully pursued warrants to surveil a former Trump aide in 2016 — House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told Fox News that Barr’s loyalties were compromised.

“He is acting as an employee of the president,” Hoyer said. “I believe the Attorney General believes he needs to protect the president of the United States.”

Added House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., in an interview with the Associated Press: “I don’t trust Barr, I trust Mueller.” And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., accused Barr on Twitter of “peddling conspiracy theories.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., added in a statement that Barr “should not casually suggest that those under his purview engaged in ‘spying’ on a political campaign.”

“This type of partisan talking point may please Donald Trump, who rails against a ‘deep state coup,'” Schiff said, “but it also strikes another destructive blow to our democratic institutions. The hardworking men and women at the DOJ and FBI deserve better.”

Barr’s comments, and the ensuing semantic hullabaloo, followed a new report that the Justice Department’s internal watchdog is scrutinizing the role of an FBI informant who contacted members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, as part of a broader review of the early stages of the Russia investigation.

The New York Times reported that Justice Department Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz is looking into informant Stefan Halper’s work during the Russia probe, as well as his work with the FBI prior to the start of that probe.

Trump, for his part, has vowed to release surveillance warrant applications used to monitor his former aide, Carter Page, beginning in October 2016. The FBI’s partisan sources in those applications have come under scrutiny, and FBI text messages obtained by Fox News show high-level concerns at the DOJ as to the credibility of sources presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court.

Page was never charged with any wrongdoing.

A separate DOJ IG investigation into potential FISA abuses by the FBI, which is expected to look at whether the bureau improperly presented misleading sources or withheld exculpatory information in its presentations to the FISA court, is ongoing. Barr said that review is likely to be completed by May or June.

Working late the last couple of days, I was able to watch some of the two House Committee Hearings featuring Attorney General William Barr.

The man showed exceptional grace under fire, as the Congressional Democrats tore into him with questions concerning the Mueller Report, instead of questions pertaining to the subjects of the two hearings.

AG Barr came out of the meetings as a shining example of professionalism, while the Democrats came off looking as if they were all doing impersonations of Humphrey Bogart playing Captain Queeg in “The Cain Mutiny” living out his obsession of the missing strawberries.

On Monday, Barr announced that he was going to put together a team to investigate the reported surveillance by the FBI on the Trump Campaign.

As the above article reports, Barr said something yesterday that made the Democrats absolutely lose their sh…err…minds.:

“I think spying…did occur.”

From those involved in local law enforcement to Interpol, they will all tell you that those who overreact to an investigation usually are the ones who have something to hide.

The Democrats are overreacting.

They should be worried.

The key to the whole Deep State Operation may lie in Inspector General Horowitz’ Report on Stefan Halper.

Who is he?

To call Stefan Halper a “Washington Insider” and a member of “The Deep State” is an understatement.

This guy’s curriculum vitae reads like a Who’s Who of the American Political Scene from the Reagan Years until now.

According to The Institute for World Politics, he is a Research Professor…

From 2001 to the present:, he has been employed at Cambridge University as a Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies where he also serves as Director of American Studies.

His work in the field of Politics is a lot more interesting that his accomplishments in Academia

Halper served in the White House (1971-1977) during the Nixon and Ford Administrations.

1971-1973 White House Domestic Council;
1973-74 White House Office of Management and Budge. Assist. Director, Management and Evaluation Division
1974- January 20, 1977 White House Office of the Chief of Staff. Assistant to the Chief of Staff . (responsibilities included summary and analysis of foreign developments and security issues)
1977-79 Legislative Assistant to Senator William Roth (R-Del.) and Special Counsel to the Joint Economic Committee.
1979-80  National Director, Policy Development. George H.W. Bush. Presidential campaign
1980  National Director, Policy Coordination, Reagan-Bush 1980 (presidential campaign)
1981-1984 Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs.
(Portfolio included China-US relations, Taiwan, non-proliferation, technology transfer, unconventional warfare.)
1984-1990 Chairman and majority shareholder:

The Palmer National Bank, Washington, D.C.
The National Bank of Northern Virginia, Leesburg, Va.
The George Washington National Bank, Alexandria, Va.
1990-2000 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Halper, Roosevelt and Brown. 

1984-2001 Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice.

“[Stephen] Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin.” Now, this is new.  Halper is part of the MI6 bunch in the U.K. that partnered with the FBI and agents from Harvard and Yale.  This is the Oxford-Cambridge, Harvard-Yale connection with the intelligence apparatus of both countries.  What it all means here so that Halper just another link from the Clinton campaign to the Russians in creating all of this phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ roll stuff on Trump, including the dossier. – Rush Limbaugh 8/28/18

With a list of accomplishments like those above, and the work he did for the Obama Administration’s Department of Defense, Halper made the perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign. And as Rush said in the quote above, Harper is another link tying the Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, the Clintons, and the rest of the phony FISA Dossier-related stuff all together.

This “contractor” evidently pulled a lot of weight in the previous Administration.

So, what does all of this mean?

It means that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the Department of Justice and President Obama “read in”, embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party. Of course, according to the raving Liberals at the New York Times, that was done to “protect” Trump.

And, if you buy that, I have stock in the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Economics to sell you.

Obama and his “Deep State” Operatives made Nixon look like an amateur.

Grab the popcorn.

Things are about to get interesting.

After Mueller – Dems to Continue “Investigations”, Prove Denial Not Just River in Egypt

March 25, 2019

90 (5)

FoxNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a blistering statement Sunday that Attorney General William Barr is “not a neutral observer,” urging the full release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report after Barr penned a letter summarizing Mueller’s findings.

Pelosi, D-Calif., and Schumer, D-N.Y., said Barr’s letter to Congress “raises as many questions as it answers.”

In their joint statement, the leaders said Barr’s past “bias” against the special counsel’s inquiry showed he was “not in a position to make objective determinations.”

They added, “the fact that Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay.”

Barr wrote that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump’s team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election — “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.” He also wrote that on obstruction-of-justice claims, “The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’”

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., also released a statement dovetailing with top Democratic leadership: “Attorney General Barr has the authority to make the full Mueller findings public with minimal redactions. He must do so as quickly as possible. The ‘summary’ document he provided today creates more questions than it answers, particularly with respect to obstruction of justice by the President.”

He added: “The American people – who for two years have waited patiently for the Mueller investigation to conclude – deserve the full truth in Special Counsel Mueller’s own words.”

The heads of three of the House’s most influential committees also said the full report on Russian election interference and Trump must be made public.

Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. and Elijah Cummings, D-Md. – the chairs respectively of the House Intelligence, Judiciary and Oversight Committees – issued a joint statement Sunday, noting: “We … call for Attorney General Barr to come forward to testify before the House Judiciary Committee without delay.  Far from the ‘total exoneration’ claimed by the President, the Mueller report expressly does not exonerate the President.  Instead, it ‘sets out evidence on both sides of the question’ of obstruction—including the evidence that President Trump attempted to obstruct justice.”

They added: “These shortcomings in today’s letter are the very reason our nation has a system of separation of powers.  We cannot simply rely on what may be a partisan interpretation of facts uncovered during the course of a 22-month review of possible wrongdoing by the President. The American people deserve to see the facts and judge the President’s actions for themselves.”

Attorney General Barr and Asst. Director of the DOJ Rosenstein thoroughly reviewed the report and determined that there was no collusion and no obstruction of justice.

However, that is not good enough for the Democrats in the House and Senate.

Make no mistake about this, gentle readers, they are not asking for the release of the full report because they care about the cause of justice or the wellbeing of American Citizens.

Just as it was in the case of their support for Special Counsel Mueller and his team of Investigators comprised of 19 Democratic Donors, the Democrats want to obstruct, delay, and derail President Trump from his mission to fulfill the Campaign Promises which he made to Americans.

Also, just as I have been writing concerning the Mueller Investigation for the last two plus years, the REAL story remains the corruption of the Obama Administration. Specifically, all of the malfeasance of Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, including E-mailgate, the Clinton Foundation Pay-for-Pay Scandal, Uranium One, and the Benghazi Massacre.

For the Democrats in the House of Representatives to perpetuate a false narrative through the arduous and interminable schedule of “Investigative Hearings” which they have announced with vengeful glee, they have willingly bought in to an exercise in futility which will do nothing but deepen the hole which they have already dug for themselves with average Americans even deeper.

As I have repeatedly warned, by concentrating their energies and the taxpayers’ time and money on their vendetta against the 45th President, instead of actually bringing up legislation that would help average Americans, they are not only liable to lose their phony boloney jobs in Washington, they will once again (at least) be denied the Presidency, as well.

However, thinking about it, their hate for Trump and us “Deplorables” is all they have.

The President and the American Citizens who voted for him, stand in the way of their goal to bring Marxism in the form of “Democratic Socialism” to “The Shining City Upon a Hill”, subsequently turning America into a Third World Barrio.

Hopefully, the Far Left Democrats and their “New Bolsheviks” will eventually figure out that average Americans still do not want what they are offering.

If we did, we would be suffering under the thumb of President Hillary Clinton.

And, since there was NO RUSSIAN COLLUSION by President Trump or his Campaign Staff, it means that Americans were the ones who stopped Hillary Clinton from becoming President.

Perhaps the Democrats should stop their tantrum long enough to reflect on that for a while.

Mueller Probe Ends…Dems’ Temper Tantrum Continues…Captain Ahab Would Be So Proud

March 23, 2019

getimagecontent85ni23ny-0

“He tasks me; he heaps me; I see in him outrageous strength, with an inscrutable malice sinewing it. That inscrutable thing is chiefly what I hate; and be the white whale agent, or be the white whale principal, I will wreak that hate upon him. Talk to me not of blasphemy, man; I’d smite the sun if it insulted me” – Captain Ahab, “Moby Dick” by Herman Melville

FoxNews.com reports that

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff rejected reports that no more Mueller indictments are coming, and suggested he would call the special counsel before a House panel if necessary to learn what is in the report.

“If necessary, we will call Bob Mueller or others before our committee, I would imagine the judiciary committee may call the attorney general if necessary,” the California Democrat said during an interview on CNN.

“At the end of the day, the department is under a statutory obligation to provide our committee with any information regarding significant intelligence activities, including counterintelligence. And it’s hard to imagine anything more significant than what Bob Mueller has been investigating.

“We have a right to be informed, and we will demand to be informed about it.”

Schiff was then asked if he would be satisfied if “the most sensitive information” obtained by Mueller was only shared with the so-called “gang of eight.”

“No, it would not suffice. Now, there may be a select sub-section of information they feel they can only share because of the very sensitive sources which derived the information, but he volumes of information that has been found needs to be shared with the whole committee so we can evaluate what steps have to be taken to protect the country.”

“We’re going to need to have the same sort of discovery that we saw during the last Congress, and indeed it may be far more extensive than that, to make sure that U.S. policy is driven by U.S. interest and not because the president or anyone around him is looking to make money from the Kremlin on a tower or anything else.

Schiff did not answer host Wolf Blitzer’s question as to whether or not any potential testimony would be public or behind closed doors.

In a separate interview with MSNBC, Schiff disagreed with reports there will be no more indictments forthcoming, saying instead it is “entirely possible, if not likely, that there will be” more.

“Well, what it means is that the office of the special counsel, which is essentially a contract attorney to the Justice Department, that that office won’t be bringing any further indictments,” he said.

“It doesn’t mean, of course, that main justice or the Seventh District of New York and the Eastern District or others may not bring indictments,”

“In fact, given the lengthy redactions in many of the pleadings of the special counsel eluding to other investigations, I think it’s entirely possible if not likely that there will be other indictments.

“Now, how central or peripheral they’ll be to the core issues of potential conspiracy is yet to be determined.”

President Trump’s legal team projected confidence Friday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not find collusion connected to the president, as he turned over the results of his exhaustive probe into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election.

“This marks the end of the Russia investigation. We await a disclosure of the facts,” attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News late Friday. “We are confident that there is no finding of collusion by the president and this underscores what the president has been saying from the beginning — that he did nothing wrong.”

Giuliani’s statement comes after Mueller transmitted his report to Attorney General William Barr.

The conclusions are not yet known, but Barr indicated he might be able to advise Congress of the main takeaways as early as this weekend.

That alone was cause for optimism in Trump world.

“This is a grand slam for President Trump. If Barr says he can brief Congress by this weekend, that means he has nothing,” said Joe diGenova, a former U.S. attorney who has advised Trump on the probe.

Last night,a repeat of the night of November 8, 2016, was a great night for Liquor stores and stores that carry Kleenex.

The Far Left Democratic Party and all of their Hive-mind “New Bolsheviks” will be proving in the months to come before the 2020 Presidential Election that denial truly is not just a river in Egypt.

While it was definitely a hoot to watch the likes of Pelosi, Schiff, and Schumer attempt to make demands of Attorney General Barr, it made me wonder to what lengths the Democrats up on the Hill will go in order to try to obstruct, impede, and even end the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

The thing is, if they spend the next two years and a ton of American Taxpayers’ money doing nothing but holding “investigate meetings” in order to attack the President and his family, the Far Left Democrats will most assuredly lose in 2020.

Why?

They will have shown their backsides way too often to average American Voters who elected Donald J. Trump as President because they were sick and tired of the Washingtonian Status Quo.

If the Democrat are ever to have even had a chance in the 2020 Presidential Election, it sure would not be by siding with those on the Far Left end of the Political Spectrum in their demented obsession to somehow get Trump out of office, while not championing any sort of legislation which would benefit those average Americans mentioned earlier.

Just like Captain Ahab’s obsession with the Great White Whale, Moby Dick, led to his and his crew’s doom, so will the Democrats’ obsession with extricating President Donald J. Trump from the Oval Office doom their political future as a viable party which average Americans can relate to.

The Democrats’ embracing of special interest groups, their advocacy of the Socialist brand of Marxism, and their obsession to destroy Trump, are the perfect storm of tone-deafness towards those Americans who could actually give them the political power which they so intensely crave.

However, their hatred of us average Americans, whom they have referred to as “Deplorables”, and their embracing of so many things which normal people living in America’s Heartland view as “anti-American”, will doom the Democrats, like Captain Ahab, to a political watery grave.

What makes me so sure?

Well, since my family were Southern Democrats until Ronald Wilson Reagan ran for President, I guess that you can just…

“Call me Ishmael”.

2020 Presidential Election: Will the Dems Nominee Be a “McGovern 2.0”?

March 20, 2019

dnc-circus-dt-600

As is usually the case, there was a very interesting moment on Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio program yesterday.

RUSH: This is Eleanor Clift. She’s a dinosaur in the Democrat Party. That just means she’s been around a long time. She’s got a different take on the Democrat Party than the modern-day socialist Millennials and the so-called new blood of the Democrat Party.

…She was on C-SPAN today, and she had a question. “Talk about history and where it can be instructional for Democrats in choosing a candidate and contrast today,” she was asked, “with 1972.”

…CLIFT: Is this is going to be 1972 or 1992? And 72, of course, the Democrats found the most left candidate in their field, George McGovern. He lost. He lost rather hugely. Then in 1992, Bill Clinton was able to sort of navigate a center position that restored the Democrats to the White House. The Democratic voting electorate is to the left. Young people who’ve grown up in this time are very attracted to socialism because they don’t see that they’ve gotten much benefit out of capitalism. So that’s going to be an ongoing debate within the Democratic field.

RUSH: She is warning them that if they nominate one of these radical leftists it’s gonna be a McGovern type landslide defeat. He lost 49 states to Richard Nixon in 1972. And that’s when the Democrats were holding Watergate in reserve, and they came back and drove Nixon from office with it after his 49-state landslide.

Here’s the thing…the Democrats’ National Chairman, Tom Perez, is a Radical Hispanic Activist. There is new way that he will allow a “Centrist” (i.e., less liberal than the Far Left) Democrat to be their party’s nominee. Nancy Pelosi may be the Speaker of the House but Tom Perez is the Party Chairman and, as Eleanor Clift alluded to, he has a lot of wild-eyed Far Left Democrats like Omar, Tlaib, and AOC to back him up.

I believe that the Dems will nominate a Far Left Presidential Candidate

And, it’s for the identical reason that they lost the 2016 Presidential Election.

The Democrats remain out-of-touch with the majority of Americans.

But…but…how can this be?

I mean, if you watch Cable News (except for Fox News) Trump should be the most hated man in America.

Between the accusations of “Russian Collusion” and “unfair treatment of asylum seekers” 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.

The past two-plus years have clearly shown 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 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 continue to try to sabotage Trump by denying his the money to fulfill the Campaign Promise he made to erect a wall on our Southern Border, even threatening to somehow override his veto of the bill they passed to prevent it, oblivious to the fact that these same Democrats were all for it before Trump suggested it.

However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President keeps on 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.

Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.

And, average Americans are loving it.

They have learned nothing at all from their 2-plus years 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” have 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.

In fact, as MS. Clift mentioned, the seeds for today’s “New Bolsheviks were probably planted with the nomination of George McGovern as the Democratic Party Presidential Candidate in 1972.

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.

Then, they can just go ahead and place a death sentence on their political party by nominating a Far Left candidate to run for President in 2020.

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

and America.

The Pelosi-led House of Representatives has already opened the lid of the porcelain receptacle to begin the Dems’ downward descent into oblivion.

Pass the salt and butter, please.

MAGA!

SJWs Take Over House: Pelosi Goes from “Iron Lady” to Doddering Old Spinster

March 8, 2019

D0aEV6yWoAAP0pR-1200x630

Do you remember 4 months ago, after the Midterm Elections, when the Democratic Leadership and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, were telling everybody that the presumptive Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, would make the House Dems “toe the line”, unifying them as a body, and bring down the “Hammer of Justice” on President Donald J. Trump?

A funny thing happened on the way to Pelosi’s “benevolent dictatorship” in the House of Representatives.

Pelosi is now finding herself and all of the “Old Guard” House Dems being pushed out of political power by 3 first year Congresswomen, anti-Semitic Marxists who have quite literally “come out of nowhere” to take all the air out of the House of Representatives.

And, the “Iron Lady” of the House can not seem to do anything about it.

Case in point…

FoxNews.com reported Thursday morning that

A Democratic source told Fox News on Wednesday that Pelosi has been “taken aback” by the growing dissent and anger among rank-and-file Democrats over the resolution — highlighting Pelosi’s tenuous grip on control over the House and underscoring the growing power of the party’s nascent far-left progressive wing.

Pelosi reportedly walked out of a meeting Wednesday with Democrat House members, setting down her microphone and telling attendees, “Well, if you’re not going to listen to me, I’m done talking.”

Then, FoxNews.com reported Thursday afternoon that

…Tensions have run high among Democrats in recent days. Apparently fed up with her party’s inability to come together to condemn anti-Semitism in the past week, Pelosi reportedly even dropped her microphone and stormed out of a meeting with junior Democrats on Wednesday, amid fierce disputes over the planning and wording of the resolution.

And, on Thursday, Pelosi offered something of a strained excuse for the 37-year-old Omar, saying at a news conference, “I do not believe that she understood the full weight of the words.”

The final text of the resolution reflected the Democrats’ deep internal divisions on the matter. It began by rejecting the “perpetuation of anti-Semitic stereotypes in the United States and around the world, including the pernicious myth of dual loyalty and foreign allegiance, especially in the context of support for the United States-Israel alliance.”

Although the resolution stops short of using Omar’s name, that provision was a transparent reference to her remarks at a progressive Washington cafe last week, in which she suggested that Israel supporters were pushing for U.S. politicians to declare “allegiance” to Israel.

The accusation that Jewish politicians could be vulnerable to having “dual loyalties” has been made for centuries in various contexts, and has been seen widely as a religious-based attack intent on undermining their leadership. Tlaib, who was seated next to Omar during her comments at the cafe, made a similar comment in January, tweeting that Senate Republicans were more loyal to Israel than to their own country.

The resolution also “condemns anti-Semitic acts and statements as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States.”

Last month, Omar ignited a bipartisan uproar across the country when she suggested on Twitter that some members of Congress have been paid by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee to support Israel. AIPAC is a nonprofit organization that works to influence U.S. policy. (“Let me be really clear,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, said. “Suggesting that support for Israel is beholden to a foreign power is absolutely unacceptable and illogical too.”)

Omar — who also tweeted in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” — refused to address questions on Wednesday about accusations that she’s anti-Semitic.

Fox News had been told the Democratic caucus was concerned about mentioning Omar by name — a non-starter for many members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Two knowledgable sources said such a scenario could increase security threats against Omar, who is Muslim.

But, Democrats went to great lengths to broaden the resolution’s focus far beyond Omar’s comments. A vote on the resolution was delayed briefly to add a new clause condemning other forms of bigotry, reportedly in response to concerns from members representing minority groups who felt left out.

So, the House Democratic Leadership, including “Madame Speaker” rolled over and played dead. (a million comical lines involving San Fran Nan’s home life just raced between my synapses, but among them are images which I do not need, so, moving on…)

And, showed the entire country just how ineffective, anti-Semitic, and Anti-American that they truly are.

Why didn’t the Speaker of the House issue a strong condemnation of Omar and her anti-Semitism?

All of the evidence garnered through her public appearances clearly demonstrate the fact that she is not the clear thinking Machiavellian genius which all of the Democratic Hierarchy attempted to present her as.

Dementia-riddled “San Fran Nan” Pelosi has been salivating for two years over the opportunity to be Speaker of the House again.

Losing the presidency in 2016 did not smarten up the Democrats at all.

If they go ahead with allowing Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) life Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan to basically run their political party while embracing Radical Islam, anti-Semitism, and Marxism, Pelosi and the rest of the “useful idiots” known as the House Democrats are very likely setting themselves up to go the way of the Whigs.

…And, it couldn’t happen to a “nicer” bunch.

The Democratic Majority in the House’s only hope of reelection at this point is to make Nancy Pelosi abdicate her House Speakership and put in her place someone who will “step hard” on the SJWs and get them under control and who will actually work with President Trump as Former Speaker Newt Gingrich worked with Former President Bill Clinton.

However, that would be a very hard task to accomplish.

There is noting harder that getting a doddering old lady to leave the House she has been in for a very long time.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

House Dems to Vote Friday on Ethics and Campaign Finance Reform Bill…First the Hypocrisy, Then the Veto

March 6, 2019

pelosi-show-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

House Democrats are preparing to vote Friday on a sweeping ethics and campaign finance reform package known as the For the People Act, and in response the White House issued its second veto threat of the year on Tuesday, calling the proposal a reckless move that would increase opportunities for rampant voter fraud and chill free speech.

The bill, known as H.R. 1, purportedly aims to eliminate “culture of corruption in Washington” and to reduce the role of money in politics. It would make it easier for citizens to register and vote, tighten election security, and establish a small-donor public matching system in congressional elections.

In a direct shot at Trump, the bill would require presidents to release at least 10 years’ worth of tax returns. The bill also would ban executive-branch officials from lobbying their old agency for two years after they leave government, and reauthorize and enhance the Office of Government Ethics, which has clashed with Trump.

Additionally, the Act would require groups like the Chamber of Commerce that spend more than $10,000 on political messaging to disclose the identity of their contributors who gave more than $10,000 — prompting several business groups to raise concerns about their ability to communicate with politicians.

“The $10,000 donor threshold appears designed to target business organizations while largely sparing labor organizations from disclosure of their funding sources, which are typically union dues that are far less than $10,000,”  Neil Bradley, the executive vice president and chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce business lobbying group, told reporters on Tuesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has long pronounced the reform measure dead on arrival in the Senate, where it faces long odds. And the White House, which has already vowed to veto the ongoing effort by Congress to strike down his national emergency declaration over border wall funding, issued a statement Tuesday outlining the administration’s problems with the legislation.

“If H.R. 1 were presented to the President, his advisors would recommend he veto the bill,” the statement flatly concluded. Trump has not yet vetoed any legislation.

One of the measure’s most notable provisions would restore protections included in the 1965 Voting Rights Act and guard against efforts by state officials to purge voting rolls.

Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a veteran of the civil rights movement, called voting “the most powerful, non-violent instrument of transformation we have in our democracy,” and said efforts to make it easier to vote — not harder — were crucial. “I truly believe deep in my heart that the way votes were not counted and purged in Georgia and Florida and other states changed the outcome of the last election” to harm Democrats, Lewis said. “That must never happen again.”

However, the White House said it saw that provision as an invitation to voter fraud.

“H.R. 1 would prohibit commonsense efforts to clean up voting-rolls to limit opportunities for voting fraud,” the White House said. “The bill would also require States to adopt online registration, same-day registration, and automatic voter registration, thus imposing a one-size-fits-all standard for weighing the competing values of voter access and voting integrity.”

The White House statement continued: “Furthermore, H.R. 1 would enhance the powers of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairman and reduce the number of FEC members from six to five, thus increasing the chances that the FEC becomes a partisan entity with undue power to shape and regulate elections nationwide.”

Other objections raised by the Trump administration centered on the bill’s advance of political redistricting mandates, as well as its possible effects on First Amendment rights.

…”The legislation would force States to create unelected bodies and then delegate redistricting decisions to them,” the White House’s statement said in response. “This would suppress the voices of our Nation’s citizens and cut off a nationwide debate on how best to pursue fair and ethical redistricting processes throughout the country.”

…”H.R. 1 also chills free speech by creating requirements that would limit the ability of Americans to participate in advocacy without undue compliance costs and without fear of public reprisals,” the White House countered. “The bill would establish costly and unnecessary programs to finance political campaigns, and force American taxpayers to finance Federal candidates they may not support.”

But Maryland Democratic Rep. John Sarbanes said Democrats were “responding directly to the American people and what they want to see in our democracy,” as shown by the election results in the 2018 midterms.

Calling the bill “transformative,” Sarbanes said in January it will “strengthen our democracy and return political power to the people by making it easier, not harder, to vote, ending the dominance of big money in our politics and ensuring that public officials actually serve the public.”

“You could stamp on this thing ‘McConnell-rejected,’ and it would immediately give it more credibility,” Sarbanes said. The legislation was not built for McConnell or any lawmaker, Sarbanes added: “This was built for the public.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also touted the bill, saying it would “restore integrity to government, so that people can have confidence that government works for the public interest, not the special interests.”

On ethics, members of Congress would be barred from serving on corporate boards and could not use taxpayer dollars to settle employment discrimination cases. But the White House argued that those provisions would unnecessarily impede the work of the executive branch with burdensome regulations.

Sarbanes and other supporters said the election security measures are particularly important as the 2020 election nears.

Predicting “historic turnout” in upcoming elections, Sarbanes said officials must not only encourage increased participation, but guard against attempts at sabotage from foreign and domestic adversaries.

“If we’re not ready for that in all the ways [the legislation] seeks to ensure, then we could end up with a train wreck,” he said.

Having the House Democrats sponsor a “Financial Reform” and “Ethics” bill is like having Stormy McDaniel write a book endorsing chastity.

Nancy Pelosi and her husband are worth $22 million, thanks to “shrewd real estate investments in California.

Gee. I wonder where they received their “tips” from?

Freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Saikat Chakrabarti, her chief of staff are presently being accused of violating campaign finance laws to the tune of almost $1,000,000.

Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are spending their time in office attacking the faith of 75% of Americans who proclaim Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior.

Meanwhile, Pelosi and her convocation of “Pharisees” are apparently going to spend the next two years wasting American Taxpayers’ money trying to get the man who average Americans voted into office…out of office.

Also, if they are truly interested in “Ethical Behavior and Finance Reform” are they going to retroactively take away the money which Hillary Clinton and her husband’s Foundation made from all of those foreign governments who pay them money to curry favor with the then–Secretary of State?

I am always writing about how the Liberals in the Far Left Democratic Party believe themselves to be the smartest people in the room and above all the rest of us Americans.

However, the House Democrats have completely lost it.

This bill has the all of the sincerity of a book titled “The Michael Moore Diet Plan”.

If the House Dems do not wake up and smell what they are shoveling, like Captain Ahab in “Moby Dick”, the Great While Whale that they are obsessed with,President Donald J. Trump, is going to drag their hopes of regaining presidency down into a watery grave for several decades.

And, considering their present Marxist Political Ideology and severely impaired mental faculties, that would be a very good thing.
