“A picture is worth a thousand words.” In these cases…, maybe more.

Here are some of the famous pictures that reflect our American history and reflect events that have changed our history.

This picture, taken in New York City, known as “The Kiss,” represents the unbridled joy by all Americans that World War II had finally come to an end.

On August 14, 1945, President Harry Truman announced from the White House that the Japanese were unconditionally surrendering.  As soon as the news was announced, spontaneous celebrations erupted across the United States.

But as memorable as the arrival of victory over Japan was, the day was bittersweet for the many Americans whose loved ones would not be returning home.  More than 400,000 Americans had given their lives in World War II, and America would never be the same.

In 2016, Donald Trump shocked the entire country by pulling off the upset of the century, while not only winning the presidency, but doing so convincingly.  The “forgotten men and women” in our country rose up and made their votes count.  Politics and the way we view “the media” in our country would never be the same.

The hypocrisy of “the left” knows no bounds!

According to Paul Farhi of The Washington Post, “The Democrat National Committee (DNC) has decided to exclude Fox News Channel from televising any of its candidate debates during the 2019-2020 cycle …”

Is this even legal?  Isn’t this a violation of the freedom of the press?  It surely is at least un-American.

You can’t say the democrats aren’t consistent.

Consistently hypocritical.

Consistently unconstitutional.

“In a statement Wednesday, DNC Chairman Tom Perez cited a story in the New Yorker magazine this week that detailed how Fox has promoted President Trump’s agenda. The article, titled ‘The Making of the Fox News White House,’ suggested that the news network had become a ‘propaganda’ vehicle for Trump.”

(Please see my other blog today on this very topic.)

“I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters,” said Perez in his statement to The Washington Post.

Soooo you “expand” your electorate “and reach all voters” by excluding certain news coverage?  You “expand” the reach of your party by excluding the most watched cable news channel on TV?  Is this what they call liberal common sense?  It sounds like you’re talking out of both sides of your mouth.  You’re a democrat alright!

‘“That is why I have made it a priority to talk to a broad array of potential media partners, including Fox News.  Recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates,’ Perez added.”

Oh, you mean they won’t be fair and neutral and allow the DNC to provide debate questions to your candidate of choice before the debate, like what happened last time at a CNN debate?

tom perez and brazile

We are all also painfully aware of how “fair and neutral” the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is towards President Trump and the virtually 100% negative reporting around the clock.

But that’s okay?

It sure is okay…, in the whacky world of irrational and hypocritical democrats.

“Hours later, Trump responded to the decision by suggesting he might seek to retaliate.”

“Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate,” he said in a tweet Wednesday night. “Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!”

Nice retaliatory strike Mr. President!  The DNC obviously didn’t consider what the repercussions of their “stupidness” would be.  That’s what happens when all of these idiots get together in a room and bounce dumb ideas off of each other.

“Numerous networks, including Fox, have submitted proposals to the DNC to televise one of the 12 scheduled debates, which will start in June.”

12 debates?!  And that’s only amongst the democrats!  By the time we get to the twelfth debate there won’t be anything left that the democrats and their socialist government can give away “free” that the democrat candidates will be able to promote.

“So far, the organization has only awarded rights to the first two, to NBC (along with sister networks MSNBC and Telemundo) and to CNN.”

Telemundo?!  Really?

Well, I suppose the DNC does have to be careful to consider the tens of millions of illegal immigrant voters who can’t speak English.

I’m sorry…, I’m bad…, I know it…, but I just couldn’t help myself.

“In a statement, Fox News Senior Vice President Bill Sammon said: ‘We hope the DNC will reconsider its decision to bar Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, all of whom embody the ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism, from moderating a Democrat presidential debate. They’re the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters.’”

We shouldn’t be surprised by these turn of events.  The DNC is just the logical extension of the liberal fascists we see all of the time attempting to silence conservative voices on college campuses around our country and at other public events and public protests.

We are well aware of their “playbook” by now.

In the Socialist democrat world, the freedom of speech only applies to those who believe like they do.  Everyone else must be shouted down, silenced and labeled as racists, misogynists, homophobes and Nazis.

Investigations here…, investigations there…, investigations everywhere!

The now democrat controlled House Judiciary Committee opened a whole new investigation this week into President Donald Trump and his “associates.”  The committee is requesting documents from 81 “agencies, entities, and individuals” connected to the administration and President Trump’s private businesses.

As reported by William Cummings of USA TODAY, ‘“Over the last several years, President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical, and constitutional rules and norms,’ House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said in a statement announcing the investigation ‘into the alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump, his associates, and members of his Administration.’”

“Those issued document requests included names connected to the Trump Organization, the Trump campaign and the White House.”

Wait…, what happened to the Mueller report?

What happened to the anticipation and expectation of Robert Mueller crucifying President Trump and his entire family?

What happened to the liberals’ vision of President Trump being “perp walked” into jail?

What?

Apparently these democrats know something (something we’ve known from the beginning).

Apparently they know that Mueller’s report is going to confirm the “witch hunt” that has been going on for two years.

Apparently they know that Mueller’s report is going to be a whole lot of nothing.

And now they want to try and continue to drive the false narrative of some kind of, any kind of, wrong doing by President Trump and anyone he’s ever come in contact with.

I would like to add that these democrats should be careful because they are setting a dangerous precedent regarding their version of “investigations gone wild!”

“Among the names were both of Trump’s adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump; Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner; the Trump trust; Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer; former national security adviser Michael Flynn; longtime Trump associate Roger Stone; former White House adviser Steve Bannon; WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange; former White House press secretary Sean Spicer; former White House communications director Hope Hicks; the National Rifle Association and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”

I didn’t notice Ivanka’s name?  Some “swamp dweller” is going to be in trouble for leaving her off of the list!

“The House Intelligence Committee has already announced a separate probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and Trump’s foreign financial interests.”

Again…, what happened to the Mueller report?

What happened to all of that talk about Mueller “bringing the evil Donald Trump to justice?”

What happened to all of this “overwhelming evidence of Russian collusion” talk?

On Sunday, that committee’s chairman, the ever reprehensible, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told ABC’s “This Week” that he plans to investigate “allegations that the Russians have been laundering money through the Trump Organization.”

Again…, what happened to the Mueller report?

The Special Counsel has a more wide ranging authority in these types of investigations than Congress has.  What makes Schiff think he’ll be able to uncover things that Mueller hasn’t?

The answer is Schiff doesn’t think that.

The answer is Schiff knows he is just continuing the harassment of The President and his family without any real justification.

And the “biased, liberal, fake news, propaganda media” are more than happy to cooperate with Mr. Schiff and Mr. Nadler.

Regarding all of this, President Trump tweeted, “After more than two years of Presidential Harassment, the only things that have been proven is that Democrats and others broke the law.”

“I am an innocent man being persecuted by some very bad, conflicted & corrupt people in a Witch Hunt that is illegal & should never have been allowed to start – And only because I won the Election! Despite this, great success!” The President said.

“Presidential Harassment by “crazed” Democrats at the highest level in the history of our Country. Likewise, the most vicious and corrupt Mainstream Media that any president has ever had to endure – Yet the most successful first two years for any President.”

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2019

Cummings added, “He [President Trump] also criticized ‘ridiculous partisan investigations’ during his recent State of the Union address.”

“Schiff and Nadler have both publicly expressed their belief that Trump is guilty of several crimes, but both have also said they are waiting to see the conclusions from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation before calling for the president’s impeachment.”

‘“It’s very clear that the president obstructed justice,” Nadler said Sunday on ‘This Week.’ But he cautioned that ‘impeachment is a long way down the road.’”

Ya, it’s as clear as mud.

Both Schiff and Nadler claim obstruction of justice “is clear,” that Russian collusion “is clear,” and that they even have evidence, but this evidence never materializes and their claims seem to evaporate like a puddle on the sidewalk on a warm summer day.

“We don’t have the facts yet, but we’re going to initiate proper investigations,” he said. “Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen.”

Wow!  Something truthful can come out of their mouths!  They don’t have any facts yet, and the truth is they have no justification for even initiating an investigation.

“We have sent these document requests in order to begin building the public record,” Nadler said, adding that Mueller and federal prosecutors for the Southern District of New York “are aware that we are taking these steps.”

“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said that Nadler is starting fresh investigations because he does not believe Mueller will conclude there was collusion between Russians and the Trump campaign.”

‘“Congressman Nadler decided to impeach the president the day the president won the election,’ McCarthy said on ‘This Week.’”

Maybe The President and all of his friends should respond to Congress the way Hillary and all of her friends have:  by ignoring congressional document requests and pleading “the fifth.”

According to Ben Shapiro of Breitbart News, “Hillary Clinton has a long history of hiding documents.”

“… the media have ignored Hillary Clinton’s obstructions and dissemblance for decades.  Hillary Clinton has a long and inglorious history of alleged document tampering and questionable legal maneuverings.”

Here are some of her greatest hits of “thwarted record requests,” besides her most recent escapades of deleting over 33,000 subpoenaed emails, having the hard drive on her private server bleached, and smashing all of her and her staff’s devices with hammers:

“Clinton used her private email address to avoid turning over documents to Congressional committees investigating the Benghazi, Libya terror attack of September 11, 2012. According to the Times, ‘It was one of several instances in which records requests sent to the State Department, which had no access to Mrs. Clinton’s emails, came up empty.’ The State Department did the same routine with regard to a Freedom of Information Act request asking for correspondence between Hillary and former political hit man Sidney Blumenthal; in 2010, the AP said its FOIA requests had gone unanswered by the State Department on the same grounds; the same holds true with regard to FOIA requests from conservative group Citizens United.”

“Hillary’s First ‘Emailgate.’ According to Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, Hillary’s top woman, Cheryl Mills – you may remember her from Benghazi – “helped orchestrate the cover-up of a major scandal, often referred to as ‘Email-gate.’” Over the course of years, the Clinton Administration allegedly withheld some 1.8 million email communications from Judicial Watch’s attorneys, as well as federal investigators and Congress. Judicial Watch says that when a White House computer contractor attempted to reveal the emails, White House officials “instructed her to keep her mouth shut about the hidden e-mail or face dismissal and jail time.”

“Hillary’s Missing Whitewater Documents. In 1996, a special Senate Whitewater committee released a report from the FBI demonstrating that documents sought in the Whitewater investigation had been found in the personal Clinton quarters of the White House. The First Lady’s fingerprints were on them. The documents had gone mysteriously missing for two years. Mark Fabiani, special White House counsel, immediately stated that there was no problem, according to the Times: ‘He added that she had testified under oath that she had nothing to do with the documents during the two years they were missing and did not know how they ended up in the family quarters.’ Hillary remains the only First Lady in American history to be fingerprinted by the FBI. Those weren’t the only missing Whitewater documents later found in the Clinton White House. Rose Law billing records were found years after being sought ‘in the storage area in the third-floor private residence at the White House where unsolicited gifts to the President and First Lady are stored before being sorted and catalogued.’”

“Hillary’s Missing Travelgate Documents. In 1996, just before the Whitewater documents emerged – literally the day before – a two-year-old memo emerged, according to The New York Times, showing that Hillary ‘had played a far greater role in the dismissal of employees of the White House travel office than the Administration has acknowledged.’ Oops.”

“Hillary has a long history of this behavior. The media are less interested in governmental transparency than in picking the next president – and making sure the next president represents the hard, corrupt left.”

Just another example, in a long line of examples, of the double standards and the hypocrisy of the democrats and their partners in crime, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

Was Michael Cohen testifying before Congress today or just putting on a show scripted by the democrats?

The answer to that question is both.

Which really makes this whole thing an absolute sham, just like the rest of the Mueller investigation.

During questioning, President Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitted that he had worked with democrat congressmen Adam Schiff of California and Elijah Cummings of Maryland in preparation for the hearings.

schiff and cummings 2

Wait…, what?!

Is that even legal?

I know it’s unethical!

The double standard allowed here by the “biased, liberal, fake news media” is just incredible.

I guess the democrats just wanted to make sure they got the biggest bang for their buck out of Mr. Cohen.

It is well known that Mr. Schiff and Mr. Cummings are Trump haters through and through, as well as being politicians that wouldn’t know the truth if they tripped over it.

Even though Cohen regurgitated his liberal directed lines well, he obviously has learned his lesson regarding lying under oath.

“Questions have been raised about whether I know of direct evidence that Mr. Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia,” Cohen testified.  “I do not. I want to be clear. But, I have my suspicions.”

Well, you go on and have all of the suspicions you want Mike.  All of your suspicions and a buck will get you a cup of coffee.

penalty

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “Cohen hearing opens with fireworks as Republicans move to postpone testimony.”

“After former Trump attorney Michael Cohen is sworn in before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Rep. Mark Meadows moved to postpone the hearing because written testimony, evidence was not received 24 hours in advance.”

“House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., led the bid to delay Cohen’s testimony, saying President Trump’s former lawyer and his legal team ignored rules calling for documents and records to be available at least 24 hours in advance.”

“Cohen’s testimony was turned over the night before the hearing, while documents were made available the morning of the hearing.”

“Committee rules require witnesses to provide their testimony to Congress 24 hours in advance of a hearing. We know that rule was intentionally violated, as an adviser of Mr. Cohen’s felt the need to go on CNN last night and explicitly state his suggestion that Mr. Cohen ‘hold his statement’ as long as possible ‘so the other side can’t chew it up,’” Meadows said. ‘Lo and behold, we didn’t get Mr. Cohen’s statement till 11:00 p.m. last night and didn’t receive any of the ‘evidence’ until this morning.’”

“He added, ‘Today’s hearing is in explicit violation of the rules. It should be postponed immediately.’”

“Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, also argued that the evidence and exhibits were not given to the minority staff at a reasonable time.”

‘“CNN had it before we did.  They had the exhibits before we did,’ Jordan said, later adding that ‘this is the first time a convicted perjurer has been brought back to be a star witness in a hearing.’”

“After a recorded vote, the motion failed, and the hearing proceeded.”

Are the democrats just incapable of following any types of rules whatsoever?

It sure appears that way.

While at the same time the republicans are always held to the strictest letter of the law.

The behavior of the “biased, liberal, fake news media” is just so blatantly unfair.  They are unabashed co-conspirators in the liberal narrative.

“Cohen went on to testify that Trump is a ‘racist, a con man, and a cheat.’”

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Cohen also testified that, “Trump did not directly tell me to lie.”

You just figured that out on your own, huh?

Cohen also admitted to recording some of his conversations with Donald Trump, when Trump was his client, without Trump’s knowledge.

With friends, and lawyers, like that, who needs enemies?!

“Cohen also is testifying that Trump knew that adviser Roger Stone was reaching out to WikiLeaks concerning the publication of stolen Democratic National Committee emails but apparently will not claim Trump directed those communications.”

So what exactly is he saying here?  I don’t get it.  So what?

“In August, Cohen pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making false statements to a financial institution, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution.”

Congratulations Mr. Mueller.  None of this has anything to do with “Russian collusion,” nor does it implicate President Trump in anything or in any way.

WINNING!

Democrats are vowing to make the ever elusive “Mueller Report” public.

Wherever we look these days at the “mainstream media,” we are inundated by politicians, pundits and mediators demanding that the “Mueller Report” be “made public.”

We hear, “The people have the right to see the report!” over and over and over again.

I couldn’t agree more.

BUT…, before the “Mueller Report” can be made public, WE HAVE TO HAVE A “MUELLER REPORT!” in the first place!

Where is it!?

It’s been like two years now!

Let’s see the report so we all can realize what a colossal waste of time, money and energy it has been.

Actually, Mueller and his team have served their purpose, as far as “the swamp” goes, by keeping the attention off of Hillary Clinton, former President Obama, his administration, and their partners in crime at the time, the FBI and the DOJ.

According to Eric Lutz, for Vanity Fair, “During his confirmation hearings, Attorney General William Barr implied he may keep Robert Mueller’s highly anticipated Russia report in-house, vowing to protect the probe but making no promises that the American people will get a taste of its findings.  But as the inquiry comes to a close [this is only a rumor at this point], House Democrats are vowing to make the special counsel’s findings public, whether the administration likes it or not. ‘We will obviously subpoena the report,’ Adam Schiff, the [newly minted] chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said on [the show] ‘This Week Sunday.’ ‘We will bring Bob Mueller in to testify before Congress. We will take it to court if necessary. And in the end, I think the [Justice] Department understands they’re going to have to make this public. I think Barr will ultimately understand that, as well.’”

The ultimate goal of the “biased, liberal, fake news media” and the democrats is to keep this “side show” going the entire four years of the Trump presidency, in an effort to defraud The President and slander him and his accomplishments at will.

The “fake newsers” and any liberal you can find with a mic in their face keeps claiming that President trump would prefer that the report remain under wraps.  This just isn’t the truth.  President Trump has never said this.  He has complained about “Mueller’s witch hunt,” but he has never sought to undermine the investigation.

“We are going to get to the bottom of this,” Adam Schiff has said.

This statement couldn’t be any further from the truth.

He doesn’t want “to get to the bottom” of anything.  All he wants to do is to keep perpetrating this immaculate hoax.

Schiff goes on to say, “We are going to share this information with the public. And if the president is serious about all of his claims of exoneration, then he should welcome the publication of this report.”

Yes…, Congressman Schiff.  Hopefully after two tears Robert Mueller has managed to “get to the bottom of” whatever it is he is getting to the bottom of.  And there doesn’t appear to be any Russian collusion in sight.  At least by President Trump, his campaign and his administration.

“If the Special Counsel has reason to believe that the President has engaged in criminal or other serious misconduct, then the President must be subject to accountability either in a court or to the Congress,” Schiff and other top Democrats wrote in a letter to the D.O.J. last week demanding that the results be made public. “The President is not above the law.”

If this statement weren’t so comical it would be sad.

The utter hypocrisy seems to just spew out of Schiff’s mouth with the greatest of ease.

We are all aware now that “being accountable” is apparently something only conservatives have to worry about.

We are also painfully aware that there definitely are those of us who seem to be “above the law,” and it’s not President Trump, any of his associates, conservatives or Americans in general anywhere.

Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is a treasonous weasel among treasonous weasels!

Yes…, former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is a treasonous weasel, and so are all of the rest of his partners in crime from Obama’s DOJ and Obama’s FBI.

All of these vermin in this “swampy” nest of rats should be in jail in my opinion, and they still may end up there.

Catherine Herridge, Chief Intelligence Correspondent for Fox News, reported that, “Former FBI acting Director McCabe says the DOJ discussed removing President Trump under the 25th Amendment.”

Wait…, say what?!

“THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE DISCUSSED REMOVING NEWLY ELECTED PRESIDENT TRUMP FROM OFFICE!”

And no one in the “biased, liberal, fake news media” feels this is worth reporting at all.

If you regularly watch NBC, ABC, MSNBC or CNN you would not be aware of any of this because they all have chosen to ignore it.  Propaganda by omission.

Now take a minute to think about the reporting that would have resulted if the same type of efforts had been directed at former President Obama after he was duly elected.

That is what we call the “biased, liberal, fake news media.”

Michael Goodwin, of the New York Post, added, “McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016.”

“There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department played in spying on the Trump campaign and leaks of classified information for partisan purposes.”

“In short, what is arguably the greatest scandal in the history of America remains mostly hidden from the public.  That shroud of secrecy piles one scandal on top of another.”

This was undoubtedly an unprecedented plot to swing an election and later to remove the duly-elected president.

Andy “poor little angel” McCabe is talking because he’s peddling a book and, just like “Leakin’ and Lyin’” James Comey before him.

McCabe then used an interview with CBS’ “Sixty Minutes” to offer up more details of a discussion within the FBI and the DOJ to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

According to Michael Goodwin, “McCabe said that the effort took shape immediately after Trump fired Comey in May 2017 and that numerous people were involved, including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.  Rosenstein, through an aide, denied the account.”

So now we one lying “swamp rat” calling another lying “swamp rat” a liar.

Beautiful.

All of these treasonous rats try to convince us that they were acting in the best interests of our country.  Ya…, that’s what all traitors say.  In actuality, they were acting in their own best interests.

Goodwin continues by saying, “Meanwhile, we do know that Comey and his dirty crew used the unverified Christopher Steele dossier, which was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, to get a secret court warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.  And FBI text messages, along with congressional testimony, confirm that the same agents probing Trump were simultaneously involved in the Clinton e-mail investigation and decided to go easy on her because they thought she would be their next boss.  Recall that Peter Strzok, the top agent in both cases, called the Trump probe an “insurance policy” in the event he won.”

Please tell me…, how are any of these slimy, treasonous, conspirators not in jail, still walking around, and selling books on top of it all?

Alan Dershowitz is an accredited and well-respected American lawyer and academic.  He is a scholar of United States Constitutional law and criminal law, and a noted civil libertarian. Most of his career has been at Harvard Law School where, in 1967, at the age of 28, he became the youngest full professor of law in its history.  He retired from Harvard in 2013, and subsequently became a regular CNN and Fox News contributor and political and legal analyst.

Dershowitz, giving his take on McCabe’s descriptions of Justice Department meetings where he said officials discussed ousting the president, said, “If [McCabe’s comments are] true, it is clearly an attempt at a coup d’état,” Dershowitz said.

“Evoking the 25th Amendment,” Dershowitz added, “would be a fundamental misuse of its original purpose.  It was originally about Woodrow Wilson having a stroke.  It’s about a president being shot and not being able to perform his office.”

So what exactly is in the 25th Amendment that is being referred to?

Let’s take a look.

Sections 3 and 4 from the 25th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America says:

3: Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

4: Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

The 25th Amendment was added to the Constitution in February of 1967.

Dershowitz added that, “Any justice official who discussed the 25th Amendment in the context of ousting the president has committed a grievous offense against the Constitution,” and that “using the 25th Amendment to circumvent the impeachment process or an election, is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing.”

Mr. Dershowitz is definitely not mincing words here.

Getting back to the “Sixty Minutes” interview, “These were the eight days from Comey’s firing to the point that Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel,” Scott Pelley, the ’60 Minutes’ host said. “And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.” He [McCabe] said people involved were ‘counting noses’ and considering who might agree to the idea [of trying to remove The President].

“I was speaking to the man who had just run for the presidency and won the election for the presidency and who might have done so with the aid of the government of Russia, our most formidable adversary on the world stage. And that was something that troubled me greatly,” McCabe said in one excerpt.

Excuse me Mr. McCabe, but that is just an out and out lie.

You were entirely aware that the “Russian collusion” angle had been completely fabricated, and that was not what “troubled you greatly.”

What “troubled you greatly,” Mr. McCabe, was that President Trump and his administration might actually shine some light on all of the unethical, illegal, and treasonous activities that you and your “swampy” friends had performed and had become accustomed to getting away with.

“There was NO Russian collusion by President Trump,” per the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee.

The conclusion of the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee is there is no evidence, whatsoever, that the Trump campaign conspired in any way with the government of Vladimir Putin during the last presidential election.

Let’s repeat that for some of our slower liberal leaning friends.

Is that clear enough for all of you democrat sheep who think wishful thinking is a valid reason to impeach a president?

To many of us this finding is no surprise at all.

To others it is a complete surprise, based on how they were led along by the “biased, liberal, fake news media” and “the swamp” in general.

The bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee spent two years investigating the question of Russian collusion and our President.  Of course, hundreds of interviews, reams of classified documents, untold millions in taxpayer dollars.  “No collusion at all.” That is what we are hearing that they have found.

Wait, I don’t get it.  Why were these senators wasting time on this while a special investigator (Robert Mueller) and his team were already tasked with investigating the same thing?

I think I would almost have to call the whole situation investigative harassment of a sitting president.

Let’s keep in mind that the whole investigation of Russian collusion was launched based on false pretenses provided by the discredited Steele dossier.

It’s easy to get sucked into this whole incestuous mess, trying to assess it logically, when in truth we have to understand that the forces pushing for the investigation knew full well that there wasn’t any Russian collusion by President Trump from the very beginning.  It was all just a distraction from the real collusion conducted by the democrats, the Obama administration, President Obama and Hillary Clinton.  It was also an attempt side track President Trump and discredit his election.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News agrees and points to some of our liberal democrat friends who have tried desperately to keep this hoax alive.

ADAM SCHIFF: U.S. REPRESENTATIVE, CALIFORNIA: “I think there is plenty of evidence of collusion or conspiracy in plain sight.”

MAXINE WATERS, U.S. REPRESENTATIVE, CALIFORNIA:  “Trump has the Kremlin clan surrounding him. There is more to be learned about it. I believe there has been collusion.”

JOHN PODESTA, FORMER WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF AND CLINTON APOLOGIST: “It is starting to smell more and more like collusion.”

NANCY PELOSI, SPEAKER, U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, CALIFORNIA:  “We saw cold, hard evidence of the Trump campaign and, indeed, the Trump family eagerly intending to collude, possibly with Russia.”  “Smells like collusion.”…”Plenty of evidence of collusion.” “Hard evidence of collusion.”

Can you see any kind of pattern forming here regarding The People’s Republic of California?

Carlson added, “In the end, it was all fake. And they knew that, they knew it wasn’t real.  They were lying from the very first day.  Only their remarkable aggression, their willingness to say literally anything no matter how outrageous or slanderous or vile, kept the rest of us from catching on to what they were doing.”

“If the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is willing to call someone [The President] a traitor to this country, there’s gotta be some truth to it, right?  Actually, no, there wasn’t. It was always a hoax.  [Congressman] Adam Schiff is an unscrupulous charlatan; that is the real lesson here.  Don’t expect people like Schiff to apologize though or correct the record, much less repair the lives of the people they have destroyed.”

Here is Malcolm Nance of MSNBC explaining why the results of a two-year Senate investigation mean nothing.  People are guilty because we say they are guilty, and we must punish them regardless.

“Let me just say one thing. When Benedict Arnold gave the plans to West Point to Major Andre and they captured Major Andre, they do not have any real information linking those plans to Benedict Arnold, other than the fact that it was in his presence at one point during that day.  But everyone knew it was treason when they caught the man, and they hung him.  So at some point, there is going to be a bridge of data here that is going to be unassailable.”

“No one had any evidence, but everyone knew it was treason when they caught the man and they hung him.”

Tucker comments about this by saying, “That says it all.  Let’s repeat that, once again, slowly so you can write down those words and put them on your fridge as a memento of the terrifying mass hysteria we have all just lived through: ‘Everyone knew it was treason when they caught the man, and they hung him.’  That is our country now. That is what the Russia insanity has done to us. The country’s core problems don’t even rate as interesting anymore, either to legislators or to TV pundits who comment on legislators. The suicide rate just hit a 50-year high, did you know that?  We are in the middle of the worst drug epidemic in the history of America, including the one after the Civil War and the heroin epidemic of the ’70s and the crack epidemic of the ’80s, this is way worse, and it’s one of the reasons the life expectancy, in many parts of the country, is dropping.”

“This is starting to look like Boris Yeltsin’s Russia, and yet nobody in Washington even notices.  All Adam Schiff and the rest of the wild-eyed morons can think about is “Vladimir Putin,” “collusion,” “our hacked democracy” and all the other mindless slogans they have repeated long enough to half believe.”

“We’ve spent two years perpetuating a fraud, and they are still doing it. What is this? It is negligence on a stunning scale. It has nothing to do with Trump, it has everything to do with running this country, and they are not.”

“Historians will look back on this moment in amazement and in sadness…, [and wonder] why didn’t any responsible person in the media say anything about it?  Why did they collude in the charade?  What the hell happened to America?”

The answer, Tucker, is nothing “new” has really happened to “America,” regarding the “biased, liberal, fake news media,” “the swamp,” or our politicians.

What has happened, that is new, is that many of us are now paying attention and we’re refusing to let these slime balls get away this crap like they were used to in the past.

WINNING!
