Why Hillary Clinton Was Not Locked Up

by Daveda Gruber:

Whatever happened to locking up Hillary Clinton? We were waiting  patiently to see justice served and that day has not come. The FBI never gave Conservatives reason to feel that the guilty, no matter how far up the political chain, would be punished for the crimes they allegedly committed.

It appears that someone thought there was wrong doing. The FBI’s top lawyer in 2016 under ex-Director James Comey the FBI’s top lawyer thought that Hillary Clinton and her team should have immediately realized that they were mishandling “highly classified” information based on the obviously sensitive nature of the emails’ contents sent through Hillary’s private server.

According to a transcript of his closed-door testimony before congressional committees last October, former FBI general counsel James Baker believed she should have been prosecuted until “pretty late” in the investigation.

Baker said high-level officials at the bureau were “arguing about” whether to bring charges against Clinton. He originally thought that Clinton’s behavior was “alarming” and “appalling.”

Baker said, “So, I had that belief initially after reviewing, you know, a large binder of her emails that had classified information in them. And I discussed it internally with a number of different folks, and eventually became persuaded that charging her was not appropriate because we could not establish beyond a reasonable doubt that…we, the government, could not establish beyond a reasonable doubt that… she had the intent necessary to violate (the law).”

Baker told lawmakers that it was “the nature and scope of the classified information that, to me, initially, when I looked at it, I thought these folks should know that this stuff is classified, that it was alarming what they were talking about, especially some of the most highly classified stuff.”

Democrats clearly recall then candidate Donald Trump, while on the campaign trail, vowing to prosecute Mrs. Clinton if he won the election.

Brian Fallon, who was Mrs. Clinton’s campaign spokesman, said, “It was alarming enough to chant ‘lock her up’ at a campaign rally. It is another thing entirely to try to weaponize the Justice Department in order to actually carry it out.”

On the other hand, Conservatives said Mrs. Clinton should not be immune from scrutiny as a special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, investigates Russia’s interference in last year’s election and any connections to Mr. Trump’s campaign. They argued, for instance, that Mrs. Clinton was the one doing Russia’s bidding in the form of a uranium deal approved when she was Secretary of State.

A December letter by former House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and former House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said the decision not to prosecute Clinton was not unanimous.

Under questioning by Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, Baker spoke extensively about the back and forth arguments.

Here’s part of that discussion:

Ratcliffe: All right. Are you a reasonable prosecutor?

Baker: Not anymore. I’m not a prosecutor anymore. 

Then there is a quick exchange of questions and answers. Ratcliff pivots back to Baker’s decision to change his mind regarding Clinton.

Ratcliffe: You were persuaded, and stated as a basis, that ultimately you were persuaded there was a lack of evidence establishing knowledge or criminal intent, correct?

Baker: Yes.

Ratcliffe: When were you persuaded?

Baker: Sorry. Pretty late in the process, because we were arguing about it, I think, up until the end.

Ratcliffe: Yeah, So Jim Comey had reached the opposite conclusion as early as – or I guess as late as May the 2nd of 2017, as reflected in the memo that he created, correct?

Baker: I know there’s been a lot of public discussion about that – this way I experienced that interaction and other interactions with Jim Comey is he would throw things out like that to get people to start talking and thinking about it and test his conclusions against others and get them to push back. And so, it was – I believe it was in that process that I read these emails and we had these discussions and arguments.

Baker’s testimony was considered credible by those in the room.

In a televised interview on July 3, 2016, Clinton claimed that she had “never received nor sent any material that was marked classified” using her personal email system.

Later on she said she regretted using the setup after it emerged that her private servers contained classified materials from Special Access Programs, or SAP, which are considered some of the most closely held U.S. government secrets.

So, there you have it. Hillary was very close to being held accountable for her alleged negligent behavior. It appears that Comey’s influence stopped the investigation in its tracks.

Did a Coup D’etat Nearly Take Down President Trump?

by Daveda Gruber:

Did you ever want to be a fly on the wall to see and hear what was going on in a particular situation? I have thought about it many times. What I did not realize is even though I wasn’t there to see and hear, I already knew the answers to some questions that were rather important and stuck in my mind.

On Monday President Trump drew a conclusion that, for some reason, I had already written about. When Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi spoke about a “wrap-up smear,” it appeared clear that this method was used by the FBI in securing a FISA warrant against then candidate Donald Trump and eventually getting a special counsel to investigate it.

By putting two and two together, I fully understood what it meant and came up with what the “insurance policy” was that Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were referring to and implicating “Andy,” who is former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, with them.

McCabe was clear on his statement that Rosenstein was “absolutely serious” when he suggested recording Trump in the tumultuous days following James Comey’s firing as FBI director.

President Trump accused Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and McCabe of pursuing an “illegal and treasonous” plot against him.

Trump called McCabe a liar before lashing out at top DOJ and FBI officials, including ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

McCabe was fired last year by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump did not hold back when he tweeted:

McCabe recently wrote a book and revived some issues during promotional interviews for the forthcoming tell all book.

McCabe appeared on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” and detailed private DOJ alleged discussions about secretly recording and potentially ousting the president.

McCabe claimed he “never actually considered taking [Rosenstein] up on the offer.” He said he did discuss the matter with the FBI’s then-general counsel, James A. Baker.

Last autumn Baker told lawmakers during a closed-door deposition that McCabe and Page came to Baker “contemporaneously” and told him details of the meeting where Rosenstein made the comments about the wearing of a wire. Baker told congressional investigators he took the word of McCabe and Page “seriously.”

McCabe told CBS News that “I think the general counsel had a heart attack” when he told him of Rosenstein’s plan.

McCabe added, “And when he got up off the floor, he said, ‘I, I, that’s a bridge too far. We’re not there yet.”

The plot thickened when days later, Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to oversee the bureau’s investigation into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials through the Russia probe, which has also involved examining whether the president obstructed justice.

Rosenstein, who has repeatedly has denied he “pursued or authorized recording the president,” has denied McCabe’s suggestion that the deputy attorney general had broached the idea of invoking the Constitution’s 25th Amendment.

The 25th Amendment allows Cabinet members to seek the removal of a president if they conclude that he or she is mentally unfit.

The Justice Department resonated both denials in a statement released last week and said that Rosenstein “was not in a position to consider invoking the 25th Amendment.”

This differs from what McCabe said in the interview, “Rod raised the [25th Amendment] issue and discussed it with me in the context of thinking about how many other Cabinet officials might support such an effort.” He then added that he believed Rosenstein was “counting votes or possible votes” to remove Trump from office.

Baker, in his testimony to Congress, provided even more details about the alleged 25th Amendment discussions and said that two Cabinet officials were “ready to support” such an effort.

Baker testified, “I was being told by some combination of Andy McCabe and Lisa Page, that, in a conversation with the Deputy Attorney General, he had stated that he…this was what was related to me…that he had at least two members of the president’s Cabinet who were ready to support, I guess you would call it, an action under the 25th Amendment.”

Allegedly, Rosenstein told McCabe he might be able to persuade then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then-Secretary of Homeland Security and later White House chief of staff John Kelly to invoke the 25th Amendment.

This whole scenario stinks of a Coup d’etat to me. It is my opinion that the “insurance policy” was contrived to take the newly elected President Trump out of office. Sadly, the Mueller lead Russia investigation was started with fabricated lies that were written about in the mainstream media and given relevance and then were blown up by the Democrats.

Now, go back to Pelosi’s description of the “wrap-up smear” and it will all make perfect sense to you as it is to me.

The “Deep State” is alive and well and living in the murky waters of “the swamp.”

Gruesome Twosome Newsom Didn’t Get the Memo

White Privileged-Liberal Progressive-Sharia-Democratic Socialism sure is a funny thing.

Within a seven day window the Democratic Party’s new It Girl and her White Men announced, among many things, the creation of high speed rail across these United States.

In that same window a waxen pale face in California cancelled the boondoggle project of another pasty pinhead, known as HIGH SPEED RAIL.

I guess Gruesome Twosome Newsom didn’t get the memo.

When the Bartender speaks, the Bartender speaks yet apparently the Bartender is no E.F. Hutton.

Of course when she does, no one has any clue as to what she is saying, including Alex from Amazon…err the Bronx.  #ByeByeBezosNotInHerHouse/InsertLaughTrackHere.

Here are two quotes.

“I think what I meant is like um,” only later to be followed by “I am not the expert in geopolitics…on this issue.”

For the love of all that’s holy will someone please ask this prize when Guam will finally tip over!

Better yet who was buried in Grant’s Tomb?

Which weighs more ten pounds of gold or ten pounds of feathers?

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

That would be must see TV!

I am fascinated by a Party who continues to make plans for the next couple of decades, when they’ve already stated we will all be dead, in less than twelve years.

That’s gotta be some of that Common Core math.

These are the same Mathlympians who paid less in taxes all year long and then complained that their tax refunds shrank.

“I think what I mean is like um.”

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition will someone, ANYONE, please tell her what she thinks she means.

Can we find this person who is “not the expert in geopolitics on this issue” and then ask them exactly ABOUT THIS ISSUE!

I don’t know what the “issue” is but does it really matter? Just pick one and ask her.

I’ll start.

We will make it an all encompassing question so we don’t leave out any in the cisgender category.

Dear Progressives,

If you hate White men so much why do you keep doing Late Night television?

Hmmm…need a minute?

Okay, take your time, hypocrisy can be difficult to choke down.  I have a followup.

If you are so diverse why didn’t you raise the roof for Arsenio or Tragic Johnson?

Why can’t Wayne Brady get a permanent “Later” gig?

You down with Black Face Kimmel, the Virginia Governor and the Virginia Attorney General but not Montel after dark?

Still need a minute?

I’ll betcha do and where are you #MeTooers?

You tuned into the alabaster ghastly groper known as Letterman for decades but no Wendy Williams?

She be all dat and a bag of wigs!

Do I be keepin’ it too real?

What’s good for one “cultural appropriator” is good for another.

Isn’t that right Cheekbones Warren?

Ol Elizabeth must like playing Twenty-One because she was caught doubling down in Texas!

As Sammy Hagar knows all too well, the girl gets around.

You frontin’ for Stephen Colbert?

Can’t get more saltine than that cracker!

Okay, okay.

Let’s finish with a flourish and borrow from a famous red neck.

“You might be a” Liberal if you call United States currency “dead presidents” and then state Benjamin Franklin is your favorite.

“You might be a” Liberal if walls don’t work but you live in a house made out of (insert Sam Kinison here) WALLS, with locks and doors, all surrounded by a fence.

Finally “you might be a” Liberal if you scream for skin color diversity (bigotry) but then use Sweden as your example of how a country should be run.

KISS is an acronym for Keep It Simple Stupid.

These Progressives are aptly named as in SS and are indeed SIMPLY STUPID.

The only question left is why are we KEEPING IT?”

Green New Deal Going to the Senate for Vote?

by Daveda Gruber:

On Tuesday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell R-Kentucky said that he wants to hold a vote on the “Green New Deal” resolution proposed by and authored by co-sponsors Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y. and Senator Ed Markey D-MA “to see how [Senate Democrats] feel about the ‘Green New Deal’.”

On Thursday the Democratic leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, slammed Republicans for planning a vote on the “Green New Deal.” Schumer labeled the forced vote a “stunt,” a “cheap, cynical ploy” and “a game of political gotcha.”

Schumer said on the Senate floor, “The Republican leader announced he’s going to bring up a resolution he intends to vote against. Now that is what the American people hate about Congress, the pointless partisan games.”

Schumer, who was joined by colleagues on the Senate floor, said, “Bring it on.” He also said Democrats “believe that we need to do something about climate change” he then added, “Do Republicans?”

The Green New Deal has been endorsed by nearly all top 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.

McConnell told reporters, “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal. And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. We’ll give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”

McConnell wants to force Democrats to officially go on the record for the radical proposal.

The proposal was put forward by Cortez and aims to transform the country’s economy in a bid to combat climate change. It was recently under examination that revealed that a related FAQ document included passages promising a job to “all people of the United States” that includes those “unwilling to work” and suggests that air travel could be made obsolete.

The document that is now deleted, told of getting rid of farting cows and airplanes within ten years. The goal has been changed to get to net-zero rather than zero emissions in ten years because they were not sure that they would be able to accomplish that as fast as they would like to.

McConnell’s move to bring the plan to a vote on the Senate floor would enlighten the public to what Democratic presidential candidates including Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand who are running on the progressive platform in 2020.

President Trump has not thought much of the co-sponsored deal and tweeted this:

Markey said, “Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you, this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning,”

If this is the beginning, I am not looking forward to more of this rhetoric. Something in my head tells me, “If you like your car, you can keep your car.”

I really don’t see super trains taking the place of airplanes and I don’t see everyone getting rid of their car for an electric one. We can’t stop cows from passing gas. So, no more steaks or burgers? That upsets me, as well. I enjoy a nice Filet Mignon on occasion.

I see these points being brought to light continuously in the 2020 election debates. The Democrats will try to sell the American people on climate change/global warming but I don’t believe the majority of people are ready to accept what the “Green New Deal” proposes.

The Islamification of American Government

by Daveda Gruber:

Many of you are familiar with a couple of congressional seats that were picked up by Muslim women and the first Muslim state attorney general put into office in Minnesota.  What you may not realize is just how many political offices were filled by electing Muslims in 2018.  Even more concerning is the high percentage of Muslims voting and their openness to promote the fact that they want to “change” our culture and society.

The information comes from JETPAC, which stands for Justice Education Technology Political Advocacy Center.  According to their Mission Statement: JETPAC seeks to build a strong American Muslim political infrastructure and increase our community’s influence and engagement. We will  take our place at the table across all levels of government. Our philosophy of change is rooted in a community-based approach, grassroots mobilization, civics training, and technology application. We have developed our own training curriculum, as well as proprietary social media technology and automation tools, to give our Fellows the skills and resources they need to win elections.

One wonders if some of those tools involve voter fraud, especially after what we witnessed in Minnesota. Irrelevant as to how they got into power, they are in our government and some actual American voters must have wanted it that way.

Let’s break down the Muslim wins from federal to the local level, and then we’ll sort them by states.

Those judiciary wins are extremely significant considering how judges don’t seem to be concerned about the Constitution anymore and look to foreign law and “precedent” in many of their rulings.

However, numbers from a report by Hamas-CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) in coordination with JETPAC indicates that a high percentage of Muslims voted in 2018. The report claims:

95% of Muslim voters participated in this year’s midterm election.

78% of Muslim voters primarily voted for the Democratic Party candidates and 17% for Republican Party candidates.

46% of Muslim voters consider themselves liberal on social issues, while 35% consider themselves conservative.

43% of Muslim voters consider themselves fiscally conservative, while 40% consider themselves liberal.

26% of Muslim voters who primarily voted for Democratic candidates perceived themselves as being conservative on social issues. Moreover, 36% perceived themselves as being fiscally conservative.

68% of Muslim voters thought Islamophobia and anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S. increased while 17% thought it decreased in the past year.

78% of Muslim voters who primarily voted for Democratic Party candidates thought Islamophobia increased in the past year. Conversely, only 33% of Muslim voters who primarily voted for Republican Party candidates thought Islamophobia increased in the past year.

53% of Muslim voters became more interested in politics since the 2016 presidential election, while 34% maintained the same level of interest in politics and 13% became less interested in politics.

55% of Muslim voters have become more actively involved in politics and/or civically engaged since the 2016 presidential election, while 45% have not.

Out of those Muslim voters who have become more actively involved in politics and/or civically engaged since 2016 presidential election:

20% have primarily donated money to a political or social campaign.

25% have primarily donated their time by volunteering with a local charity or civic-minded or religious organization.

18% have primarily donated their expertise by using their skills and/or network to advance social/political engagement.

37% have primarily been involved in another way.

Yes folks; American voters put these people into office. The American people are the ones who maintain political correctness by showing that diversity can work. But really, does it? What will Muslims in power actually do with that power once there are enough of them to make the changes that their religion demands? You’ve all seen how a couple of freshman congresswomen spew antisemitic rhetoric. Don’t think for one moment that their thoughts are only focused on the Jewish population of America. Their religion doesn’t take kindly to Christianity either.

If you DON’T think they have an agenda to conform America to Islam, you really do need to pull your head out of the sand.

 

Rashida Tlaib Wrote a Column for Louis Farrakhan

by Daveda Gruber:

Anti-Antisemitism is lurking amongst new lawmakers in the House of Representatives. House Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-MI wrote a column  in 2006 entitled “Bills must stop deportations for minor offenses,” on The Final Call for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

The Final Call is an online publication founded and maintained by Farrakhan.

Excerpts of what Tlaib, the freshman Palestinian American, wrote:

“Lost in the often-vitriolic national quarrel over immigration reform is any examination of proposed measures that would result in excessive punishment, such as detention and deportation, for the most minor offenses. Concern for “national security” has introduced unprecedented insecurity to living in the United States as a legal permanent resident.”

It’s easy to forget that detention and deportation have real and long-lasting effects on families. We are not able to see such negative effects right away, or immigrants fear speaking out.

After 9/11, fear between Arab and Muslim communities rose and remain widespread, as repressive policies seem to target particular nationalities.

Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) officials stated that this was part of a national operation to apprehend immigrants that committed violent crimes. However, reports from community members verified that ICE began knocking on neighboring homes one by one and took several people into custody without just cause.

There is no mention of these dangerous provisions in the debate. Over and over again, we hear about border security, legalization and national security, but there is no reference to maintaining our tradition and American values of keeping families together, providing a safe haven for the needy and advancing humanity.”

The full op-ed can be found HERE:

After publication, a spokesperson for Tlaib said in a statement, “As a former immigration attorney and advocate, Congresswoman Tlaib has published numerous articles about the need for immigrant rights. The goal was to educate citizens about the importance of passing just and humane immigration reform, which is still a priority for her district today.

The piece was from 2006 and was not an endorsement of Farrakhan or anyone for that matter. The Congresswoman has not had any direct contact with Farrakhan and condemns his anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ views.”

Tlaib later came under bipartisan criticism from Jewish groups for appearing with radical anti-Israel activists during her swearing in ceremony in Michigan. Some of the activists previously praised terror group Hezbollah and Palestinian terrorists saying that Israel has no right to exist.

Tlaib’s association with Farrakhan comes after strong criticism of her and other freshmen Democrats who have been accused of anti-Semitism.

Tlaib also has a prominent fundraiser who has partaken in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Tlaib’s Democratic colleague, another freshman, is Somali American Rep. Ilhan Omar D-MN. She has also faced similar criticisms for thoughtless remarks about Israel and Jewish advocacy groups in the United States.

So far, Democratic leadership has defended Tlaib and Omar. House Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries D-N.Y. and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer D-MD dismissed concerns of anti-Semitism last month. Hoyer said, “I don’t know that I draw the conclusion that these two members are anti-Semitic. I don’t accept that.”

Farrakhan is open on his rhetoric. In 1984, Farrakhan praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler when he said, “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.”

More recently Twitter took action against hate spewing Farrakhan when he shared a video warning about “Satanic Jews.” He wrote, “Will you recognize Satan? I wonder, will you see the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan, which has many races in it because Satan has deceived the whole world?”

His anti-Semitic vocabulary continued when he recently posted another video where he says that he wasn’t prejudiced against Jewish people but was simply “anti-Termite.”

Farrakhan and his followers went on a solidarity trip to Iran in November. In Iran he led “Death to America” chants. During the trip, Farrakhan told Iranian students that “America has never been a democracy,” and also led a “Death to Israel” chant at the end of his talk. This was reported by Iranian news agencies.

Antisemitism is not new in the U.S. or anywhere else, for that matter. The fact that it is out in the open and spewed regularly is disturbing.

It is pretty much still fresh in our minds what happened at the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood where eleven congregants died when they were gunned down by Robert Bowers.

Grammy Awards Spawn Pro-Trump Attire

by: Daveda Gruber:

Did you watch the Grammys last night? I tend to try to stay away from award shows as they produce a lot of anti-Trump dialect but I did watch the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center last night.

Since President Donald Trump’s election in 2016, the language at award shows makes me uneasy and I tend to hold the remote control ready to change the channel.  I was pleasantly surprised when I didn’t hear offensive rhetoric from famous people.

My finger was itching to click when Michelle Obama stepped on the stage but she didn’t say anything offensive. I stuck with the show and held onto my remote control. I was ready for anything.

Joy Villa, 27, has shown her support of Trump for a couple of years now. She has dressed in outfits that surely show off her sentiments. Last year, the singer donned a rainbow-colored anti-abortion dress and in 2017 she wore a blue ‘Make America Great Again’ gown that featured Trump’s name and slogan.

This year Villa made her annual MAGA statement on the 2019 Grammys red carpet by wearing another strongly conservative outfit. She donned a barbed wire border wall with a silver dress and crown with a red Make America Great Again purse. on her way into the Grammys

Once inside, she removed the silver and showed off a low-cut gown emblazoned with bricks and a back that read, “BUILD THE WALL.” Villa’s dress was designed by Desi Designs Couture.

Villa told Fox News about her ensemble, “Well to no surprise, I’m still a Trump supporter and supporting the president and what he’s doing. One in three women who are trying to come to this country illegally are sexually assaulted. Thousands of children are sexually exploited by coyotes bringing them across the border. Seventy percent of the heroin in our nation is brought in through Mexico. This is not personal against this country or the people. It’s not about race. It’s about protecting the people who are in this country. I’m Latina, I’m black. I support what the president says about building the wall, so that’s what this dress represents.”

Villa has spoken out on her support of Trump in her tweets:

Then there was Ricky Rebel.

Rebel, 38, sported a blue jacket that read “KEEP AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” down the front lapels with a white shirt and pants. He accessorized with patriotic star glasses and white heeled boots.

The back of Rebel’s jacket simply read “TRUMP.”

 

Rebel said, “Well, I’m Ricky Rebel, I have a new album called ‘The New Alpha’ so I wanted to wear something that represented what an alpha is and who an alpha is and I am the new alpha. And I’m reflecting millions of Americans out there who voted for Trump. Keep America great. That’s right, baby. We are here. We’re here all around the world, 50 million of us. My name is Ricky Rebel and I’m a reflection of America.”

Ricky Rebel walked the red carpet in a blue jacket emblazoned with the words “Keep America Great” and “Trump 2020” over a white blouse, pants, and high-heeled knee-high boots.

The rock artist has long been an active supporter of President Trump and faced the backlash over it.

Rebel has love of all-things. Rebel, who is bisexual, has been an advocate for LGBT rights. That doesn’t stop him from being a proud American who knows who is making America great.

He tweeted, as well:

 

The Only Thing Missing Was Their Hoods

This week the two questions asked of me the most were these.

Did you watch the Super Bowl?

Did you watch the State of the Union?

No and Yes.

According to reports I didn’t miss much of the Big Game.

Of course I haven’t watched the NFL in a couple of years so the entire process was irrelevant to me.

The State of the Union on the other hand was quite interesting.

My personal belief is the SOTU always goes on too long regardless of who is doing the giving.

With that said President Trump was quite entertaining and I found the speech to be exceptionally well written.

So well written in fact the power of the words literally forced the Party of Hate known as the Democrats to stand and applaud multiple times.

The verbiage was so strong even Aunt Nancy couldn’t contain multiple smiles or whatever we want to call her face when it contorts vertically at the corners.

Then again she could have been having a stroke.

How would we know?

After the President was finished the Democratic response was given by an individual who apparently learned nothing in school or from her parents.

Stacey Abrams started off with a story about her father giving away his coat one night to a homeless man. If true I applaud her father for the gesture but dismiss him as a positive example to others as his own daughter does nothing but take and take and take from anyone and everyone. Not only is she in poor health due to her own choices, she’s also hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt.

Furthermore she attempts to lead the lost even further astray by attempting to save “Democracy”.

Liberals are amazing creatures.

They continue to try and save something that doesn’t exist (Democracy) yet have no problem dancing and celebrating the killing of things that actually do (babies).

Stacey Abrams “coat” was not one of many colors and although it was stated that her parents were both pastors I doubt Stacey would ever recognize the aforementioned reference.

Furthermore the concept of “love” (giving to others without expectation) was certainly not passed along to her.

She has high expectations of other peoples money.

Finally it always strikes me as absurd when someone who chooses to be morbidly obese feels they are qualified to give their opinions on health care.

At any level this is hypocrisy then again her hero Oprah does it every day on televisions across America so apparently what is good for one large bigot is good for another large bigot.

Finally we have some consistency.

I can hear Harpo now.

“And you get a coat and you get a coat and you get Type 2 diabetes!”

Thanks Progressives.

The SOTU after “parties” depended upon one’s choice of network.

FOX tried to be “fair and balanced” and sounded like a bunch of guilty apologists in their attempts to give Mr. Trump credit.

CNN couldn’t be bothered with such tripe.

They drooled, frothed and cut each other off in their rush to one up each others stupidity.

Unsurprisingly they laughed and congratulated each other while genuflecting to the “diverse” crowd standing behind Spacey Stacey.

Last but not least the female Progressives who spent part of the night fist bumping each other and raising the roof seemed to settle right in with their historic male counterparts.

The only thing missing was their hoods.

Robert Byrd would have been so proud.

The only thing left would have been for Obama to give them a eulogy and a hug.

Benedict Barack would have been an awesome Tory.

He’s been a great Iranian.

Was the WRAP UP SMEAR Used on Trump?

by: Daveda Gruber:

We all know that smearing someone can be a tricky thing to do without getting caught. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has some information to share. Yes. she knows what it takes to SMEAR anyone using what she calls the WRAP UP SMEAR.

I believe that this tactic was used on President Trump to create what we know as the Trump–Russia dossier, which is also known as the Steele dossier.

This dossier was allegedly created as the insurance policy that FBI employees Peter Strzok  and Lisa Page texted each other about in regard to then candidate Donald Trump potentially winning the presidential election in 2016.

I found this video of Pelosi speaking to a training class. In it she talks about how the WRAP UP SMEAR tactic is used. She knows all about how it is used for a very good reason. I believe that she has used it and will do so again.

Remember, she is the third most powerful politician in the country. She is the Speaker of the House and third in line for the Presidency.

Watch the video here:

So, Pelosi has stated that the WRAP UP SMEAR is used when a Politician demonizes something with falsehoods and then it is reported by the mainstream media, as if it were true, and then used as a merchandising tool to be used by the Politician because it is written up by the press. It has validation because it was written up and is now in the media.

There you have it. This is why having reporters write about what you say is important. This is too easy to do when you have the media on your side.

 

Look Who Wants to Defund Homeland Security

by: Daveda Gruber:

Rep. Ilhan Abdullahi Omar D-Minn. is a Somali American politician. She is serving as the U.S. Representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district based in Minneapolis.

Ilhan Omar came to the United States when she was twelve. She knew only two phrases of English upon her arrival to the United States. She could say, “hello” and “shut up.” Her primary victory makes her the first Somali-American and one of the first two Muslim women (along with Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib) in Congress.

Ilhan Omar is an avid user of Twitter and her tweets are controversial and get attention from both Democrats and Republicans; both for different reasons.

On Friday evening she was upset that TSA agents were not getting paid and on behalf of TSA workers in Minnesota who haven’t received back pay due to the recent partial government shutdown, she tweeted:

About two hours later she was out to defund the Department of Homeland Security.

The freshman congresswoman tweeted:

There have been calls from Democrats to abolish ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), but there hasn’t been a strong demand to defund the entire Department of Homeland Security, which also includes the Transportation Safety Administration, Secret Service, Coast Guard and Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Twitter users were quick to reply and Republicans, or so it appears, were quick to offer their opinion. Here are a few of the responses:

Before Friday, Ilhan Omar has posted several controversial tweets since being elected to Congress. She accused President Trump of wanting a “coup” against Venezuela and insisted that Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., was “compromised.”

Besides this, she has also posted several tweets attacking Israel, including one in which she agreed with a liberal activist that current-day Israel is similar to the U.S. during the era of racial segregation.

Ilhan Omar also does not agree on the current immigration situation here in the U.S. and she was not afraid to share her thoughts on the matter. She tweeted this:
