The Sierra Club says climate change deniers are more likely to be racists!  Well, there’s killing two birds with one stone!

According to Heather Smith for SIERRA, The national magazine of the Sierra Club, “People who don’t believe that climate change is real are more likely to be old, more likely to be Republican, and more likely to be white.”

So you’re saying the smartest group among us don’t necessarily believe in all of this climate change mumbo jumbo?

Makes sense to me so far.

“They [the old, white, conservatives] are also more likely to have racist beliefs, according to a recent study published in the journal ‘Environmental Politics.’”

“Environmental Politics.”  Now there’s a liberal rag of a magazine if ever I heard of one!

I take it they’re just assuming the racist part because we’re talking about white conservatives here.

I doubt they asked people in the study if they were racists or not.

Ms. Smith goes on to say, “This correlation is a relatively recent phenomenon—one that occurred in the wake of Barack Obama’s election in 2008.”

cons 7

Oh, okay…, now I’m starting to get where this is going.

“The paper hypothesizes that, however moderate his actions, the mere existence of our first African American president dropping climate change into the State of the Union Address and joining the Paris climate accord correlates with a significant number of white Americans deciding that they were done believing in climate change.”

“This correlation has also been documented with regard to health-care reform—after the Obama administration made it a priority, a subset of white Americans who had supported the issue during the Clinton administration suddenly switched their position.”

This last claim is just a plain fabrication.  Not many people supported government run health care at all during the Clinton years.  That’s why they failed to implement it.  ObamaCare was actually signed into law.  I don’t think their argument stands up here.

Their racist claims regarding President Obama and climate change are way off base as well.

When are these liberals going to understand that conservatives didn’t care about the color of Obama’s skin…, it was HIS policies, and HIS racism that turned conservatives off.

“Political messaging with racist over- and undertones has been deployed relentlessly by some politicians because appealing to prejudice and paranoia really does motivate racist, paranoid people to show up and vote.”

Now there something we can all agree on!

Except they’re referring to Republicans and I’m thinking about the Democrats!

cons 5

These crazy “studies” are about as valuable as their polling numbers!

But accuracy was never their goal in the first place.

It was the liberal messaging that was the most important thing.  It was only a means to an end.  Some hogwash to back up a failed narrative.

WINNING!

Woof! Woof! Campaign finance laws…, all bark and no bite.

Let’s make no mistake about it…, politicians and political groups are ALL about the money.  And it doesn’t really matter what party they’re affiliated with.

When we hear all of this blustery talk regarding “campaign finance reform” every so often, their proposals are all just shams that pretend to actually do something, but in reality they have no effect on the flow of money at all.

In this case, were talking about the flow of what is referred to as “dark money.”

“Dark money” is referred to as “dark money” because the actual donors/investors remain comfortably and anonymously in the shadows.

dark money 1

What we have here is the discovery of an entire “dark money” network supporting liberal causes.

dark money 4

According to Adam Shaw for Fox News, “An expansive network of ‘shadowy’ dark money donors has [been uncovered which is] pumping millions into left-wing causes ranging from health care to climate change to abortion, all while flying well under the radar of public scrutiny, according to an explosive new report obtained by Fox News.”

“The report, by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center, describes a band of nonprofits operating under the banner of Washington-based philanthropy company Arabella Advisors. Those ‘pop up groups’ are housed in four Arabella-controlled ‘sister’ nonprofits, according to the report: The New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Hopewell Fund and Windward Fund.”

‘“Together, these groups form an interlocking network of ‘dark money’ pop-up groups and other fiscally sponsored projects, all afloat in a half-billion-dollar ocean of cash,’ the report says. ‘The real puppeteer, though, is Arabella Advisors, which has managed to largely conceal its role in coordinating so much of the professional Left’s infrastructure under a mask of ‘philanthropy.’”

“The report says the ‘hydra-like’ network brought in $1.6 billion between 2013 and 2017 ‘to advance the political policies desired by wealthy left-wing interests,’ as the network’s revenues grew by 392 percent. The four Arabella-controlled ‘sister’ groups brought in $582 million in 2017 alone, according to the report. If the four groups were a single entity, it would make them the 22nd largest public charity in America, with higher revenues than the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Planned Parenthood or the Clinton Foundation.”

‘“The size and scope of the Arabella network of funds demonstrates far more ‘dark money’ exists on the left side of the political spectrum than has been previously admitted,’ the report says.”

Uh…, yeah…, especially since nothing is ever “admitted!”

dark money 5

The name “Arabella” means “yielding to prayer,” by the way.  Prayer to who or what would be my only question, as this is definitely not a Godly venture.

“Arabella’s website says the company was founded to ‘provide strategic guidance for effective philanthropy’ and is ‘dedicated to helping clients make a difference on the issues that matter most to them, from climate to women and girls, education, good food, and more.’ All told, the company represents clients with collective assets totaling more than $100 Billion.”

That’s $100 Billion with a “B!”

“But the report alleges the group blurs the line between philanthropy and political advocacy on issues such as ObamaCare, gun control, abortion and opposition to the confirmation of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. And it says that due to the financial arrangements and lack of donor disclosure, ‘it is impossible to know which organization subsidizes the various campaigns and political movements spawned by Arabella’s funds.’”

And that’s just the way they like it.

“The company was founded by Eric Kessler, who has worked both in the Clinton administration, where he managed conservation issues, and as a member of the Clinton Global Initiative. He also founded the New Venture Fund and is on the board of the Sixteen Thirty Fund.”

Well, there you have it.

That’s all we needed to know.

Arabella was founded by someone who has worked in the Clinton Administration and the Clinton Global Initiative.

A true pedigree in crookedness and underhandedness.

“Arabella did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News.”

Reeeeeally?!

“The report claims the group runs a network of ‘astroturf’ [referring to apparent grassroots-based citizen groups or coalitions] activities including as many as 340 ‘pop up’ groups, which the report says are often little more than websites created to give the appearance of grassroots campaigns. It cites the organization’s activities pushing back against Republican efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare as an example of its political activism.”

‘“At a glance, these groups, such as Save My Care and Protect Our Care, appeared to be impassioned examples of citizen activists defending ObamaCare,’ the report says. ‘In reality, neither “not-for-profit” advocacy group appears to have paid staff, held board meetings, or even owned so much as a pen.’”

“Consequently, the report says, the groups can be used to run ‘short-term, high intensity media campaigns targeting the news cycle’ such as during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. The report gave the example of activists, led by Demand Justice, waving glossy ‘Stop Kavanaugh’ signs in protest of the conservative nominee’s confirmation.”

“Demand Justice, led by former Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon, is very active on judicial issues, and is more than just a website.

There’s that “Clinton” reference again!

Liberal mega-donor George Soros and his Democracy Alliance group pop-up as well in association with the Sixteen Thirty Fund and the New Venture Fund.

dark money 3

It’s just one more bit of evidence which demonstrates the un-holiness of these alliances.

Stay thirsty (for the truth) my friends!

The truth is out there, and the truth shall set you free!

How portions of the liberals’ playbook has evolved AND the recently released Mueller Report!

I would contend that prior to the 1980’s the political playbook for liberals and conservatives was pretty similar.

During the 90’s, Bill and Hillary Clinton changed the “deflect accusations” portion of the liberal playbook to “deny, deny, deny” and “lie, lie, lie.”  They just would not admit to anything…, even if they were caught red-handed.

blaming others 1

Then in the 2000’s, in addition to “deny, deny, deny” and “lie, lie, lie,” the liberals went one step further.  Before they could even be accused of doing something, they would take the initiative and blame the conservatives of doing exactly what they were already doing; thus not only getting themselves off the hook, but giving the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” an excuse to harass and investigate conservatives.

I would say it’s a pretty ingenious strategy, however, this strategy only works when you have a cooperative media.  Having the cooperative media changes the strategy from ingenious to diabolical…, and even treasonous in some cases.

blaming others 2

We have now seen this new strategy employed over and over again.

Most recently we have the cases of the democrats charging President Trump and the republicans of tampering with the election of 2016, Russian collusion, and obstruction of justice…, all of which the democrats were doing, but the complicit media, of course, looked the other way.

The recent completion and subsequent release of Robert Mueller’s report has cleared The President and his people of any election tampering, as well as any type of Russian collusion.

Mueller and his team, in fact, were unable to come up with ANYTHING they could charge The President with.

blaming others 5

If they could’ve you know they would’ve!

So what are we left with?

We’re left with the democrats crying about redactions in the report and more unfounded claims of obstruction of justice.

President Trump wasn’t charged with anything…, so what exactly do they feel he was obstructing…, the proving of his innocence in all of these manufactured matters?

The whole thing would be funny if it wasn’t so sad and pathetic.

blaming others 6

So now we have come full circle, for the first time I believe, regarding a topic(s) put forward by this “preemptive accusal strategy.”

The question remains then…, if your opposition is cleared of those things you accused them of, which you did or are still doing, how do we proceed and what can we expect?

If matters are handled correctly, this could be an epic beat down for the democrats.

Not only would they be held accountable for the wild goose chase of an investigation, but they would then begin to face the music for their own sins in these matter(s).

This has the potential to be an extremely beautiful thing…, especially if President Trump rolls in the 2020 election and regains control of The House of representatives on his coat tails.

The democrats’ sole mission now is to keep the American peoples’ eyes off of the ensuing investigations into democrats and to cover their a$$es by any means possible.

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” will of course be doing its best to assist in these matters, but I still have faith that some semblance of justice will be done, and karma will collect its toll.

So the American people weren’t the only ones who got lectured to by Barack Obama!

One of the main things that always annoyed me about former President Obama was that I always felt he was talking down to me.

obama lecturing 7

Apparently he started to believe all of his “fake news” propaganda and press clippings, and actually believed he knew something about something.

obama lecturing 5

obama lecturing 9

obama lecturing 4

I don’t know about you, but I was always grateful to President Obama when he would decide to grace us by sharing his wisdom and knowledge with all of us unenlightened “trailer trash.”

obama lecturing 3

That, on the “flip-side,” is one of the things I like about President Trump.  I feel like he’s communicating with me on equal terms; talking with me not at me.   

obama lecturing 8

Hungary’s top diplomat has the same feelings apparently.  He praised President Trump and his NATO policies recently, while contrasting President Trump’s positive communication style against the Obama-era “lecturing.”

According to Adam Shaw for Fox News, “Hungary’s top diplomat, in an interview with Fox News, praised President Trump’s push for NATO partners to boost military spending, and said the administration’s treatment of Central European countries as allies represents a stark contrast from what he called the “lecturing” of the Obama years.”

‘“Since the current administration has been in power, the relationship has totally changed and the relationship is based on mutual respect which used not to be the case,’ Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told Fox News. ‘So before this administration took office, “lecturing” was basically the right expression to describe our relationship.’”

“Szijjarto’s comments came just days after Hungary and the U.S. signed a new Defense Cooperation Agreement (DCA).  A State Department official told Fox News that the new agreement means the U.S. and Hungary will be ‘better positioned to meet and overcome current and future challenges that threaten stability in the region and beyond.’”

“Szijjarto hailed the agreement as a ‘clear signal’ of the change that has come to the U.S.-Hungarian relationship since Trump entered the White House.”

“Both Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Trump have won elections running campaigns heavy on nationalism and tough on illegal immigration (Hungary has built two border fences since 2015).  Hungary was one of the countries to join the U.S. in withdrawing from the U.N. global pact on migration last year.”

The United Nations Global Migration Agreement is a non-binding deal that has created political tensions in several countries, with politicians claiming it will lead to more migration or erode a country’s ability to be in charge of immigration laws.

It was designed “to de-politicize migration again but the pact has done the opposite,” Marion Anne Perrine “Marine” Le Pen, President of the French National Rally political party, has said.

The United States was the first country to pull out of the agreement in December of 2017.  A statement at the time said “The agreement was incompatible with US sovereignty and our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone.”

“Hungary followed in July 2018 – and, at the time, the foreign minister said: ‘This pact poses a threat to the world from the aspect that it could inspire millions [of migrants].’”

According to Jack Goodman for BBC News, “Criticism in Europe rose as the date for the signing of the agreement approached.”

‘“The country that signs the pact, obviously signs a pact with the devil,’ said Ms. Le Pen.

“Polish Interior Minister Joachim Brudziński has said the pact ‘could also be an incentive for illegal migration.’”

“Germany backed the agreement but faced stern opposition.  Alice Weidel, leader in the German parliament of the far-right party Alternative for Germany (AfD), said: ‘In effect, illegal migration is being legalized.’”

Adam Shaw continued by saying, “Both Orban and Trump have been criticized for their immigration policies, while liberal groups in Hungary have alleged that the Orban government is eroding judicial independence and cracking down harshly on political opposition groups, including passing a ‘Stop Soros’ package of laws aimed at curbing the influence of Hungarian-American left-wing billionaire George Soros in the country.”

obama lecturing 10

Wow…, this George Soros guy really makes the rounds!  I still don’t really understand what he’s actually trying to accomplish.  I just get the feeling he hates everybody and just wants people to suffer.

I think deep down he has a serious inferiority complex.  It’s a combination of the “Napoleon complex” and the “Ugly duckling complex!”

If you’re not familiar with the term, “The Napoleon complex occurs in people of short stature.  It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behavior, and carries the implication that such behavior is compensatory for the subject’s stature,” according to Wikipedia.

I would add that he would also seem to exhibit “The God complex;” believing he has the ability to control people and situations by virtue of his seemingly limitless funds.

I do know one thing though…, George Soros did not become a billionaire while living under a socialistic system of government, which he now promotes for the rest of us.  I think Soros would consider the downfall of Venezuela to be his road map to success.

“Szijjarto indicated there are similarities between the opposition facing Trump and the Hungarian government.”

‘“We understand the global liberal political elite and global liberal media hate your president, they hate what he has been doing, but they hate what we have been doing as well,’ he said.”

Hmmm…, sounds like they have their own issues with the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” and the so-called “elites.”

‘“We are very happy that this administration looks at us Central Europeans as allies instead of lecturing us how to accommodate our life,’ he said, calling it a ‘totally different approach’ from the previous [Obama] administration.”

“Szijjarto said Hungary has no issue with Trump’s push for nations to meet commitments to spend 2 percent of GDP on defense.”

‘“We think that it was absolutely legitimate from his perspective to argue for nation’s commitments to be fulfilled as soon as possible,’ he said, adding that Hungary had already met that commitment.”

“Trump’s aggressive stance with NATO allies, including reports that he has considered withdrawing from the alliance, has led to criticism he is weakening NATO.  But Szijjarto’s remarks echo those of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg who, in a speech to Congress this month, said that Trump’s push to increase defense spending made the alliance stronger.”

obama lecturing and trump nato

Hmmm…, that’s interesting. Things sure seem quite different when you hear them right from the horse’s mouth as opposed to hearing them through the filter of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

WINNING!

Okay…, now that Mueller’s phony investigation is over, let’s find out what really happened during the 2016 presidential election!

Don’t you feel sorry for Robert Mueller?

I mean he was trying his hardest to pin something, anything, on President Trump, but he had to deal with tripping over evidence against Hillary Clinton and the rest of “the swamp” at every turn!

It must have made his job quite challenging.

I haven’t read the Mueller Report yet, of course, but I’m willing to bet that over the course of his investigation, he and his motley crew didn’t come across ONE thing that would reflect negatively on Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the Obama administration, the Obama DOJ or the Obama FBI.

Imagine that!

Let’s wait and see, but if this is the case, and I’m sure it is, this would only further substantiate the fact that Robert Mueller’s “investigation” was a complete farce, and just a “witch hunt” like President Trump claimed all along.

Kimberley Strassel, an editorial board member for The Wall Street Journal agrees.  She says, “Mueller’s investigation is done.  Now dig into the real scandal — missteps of Comey, FBI.”

She has gone on to call for the declassification of all documents related to the Mueller report.

“The American public deserves to get the full picture of the special counsel’s investigation,” she argues.

Ya, it would be nice to see what Mueller chose NOT to investigate, or things he chose to look the other on.  By all means, let’s drag all of this out into the sunlight!

Perhaps, once they realize what they are asking for, the democrats will start singing a different tune about wanting everything associated with the “investigation” released and subpoenaing Mueller to testify about his report.

“Attorney General William Barr has reported to Congress that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has cleared President Trump and his campaign team of claims of conspiring with Russia during the 2016 election.  This is more than an exoneration.  It’s a searing indictment of the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], as well as a reminder of the need to know the story behind the bureau’s corrosive investigation.”

“Mr. Mueller’s report likely doesn’t put it that way, but it’s the logical conclusion of his no-collusion finding. The FBI unleashed its powers on a candidate for the office of the U.S. presidency, an astonishing first. It did so on the incredible grounds that the campaign had conspired to aid a foreign government. And it used the most aggressive tools in its arsenal—surveillance of U.S. citizens, secret subpoenas of phone records and documents, even human informants.”

“Americans now deserve a full accounting of the missteps of former FBI Director James Comey and his team—in part so that this never happens again.”

“The wreckage is everywhere. The nation has been engulfed in conspiracy theories for years.  A presidency was hemmed in by the threat of a special counsel.  Citizens have gone to jail not for conspiracy [or collusion, or obstruction], but for after-the-fact interactions with Mr. Mueller’s team.  Dozens more have spent enormous amounts of money and time defending their reputations.”

These people were all collateral damage in the effort to bring down President Trump.

“None of this should ever have happened absent highly compelling evidence—from the start—of wrongdoing. Yet from what we know, the FBI operated on the basis of an overheard conversation of third-tier campaign aide George Papadopoulos, as well as a wild “dossier” financed by the rival presidential campaign.  Mr. Mueller’s no-collusion finding amounts to a judgment that there never was any evidence.  The Papadopoulos claim was thin, [and] the dossier a fabrication.”

And what about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court abuses, and all of the downright treasonous actions that can be attributed to the Obama administration, the Obama DOJ and the Obama FBI?

The tide has definitely turned here and we have them on the run!

Now it’s time to dole out some real justice!

LOCK HER UP!

LOCK THEM UP!

LOCK ‘EM ALL UP!

treason

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.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive! – Sir Walter Scott

Is California voter fraud a fraud?

According to Ed Kilgore of New York Magazine, and most liberals, it is.  In a recent article, Mr. Kilgore calls “voter fraud” a “Republican myth.”

voter fraud schumer

Commenting on Republicans’ questioning of the California voting process during the midterm election, “… they professed mystification at the final results. I say “professed” because it’s hard to believe Speaker Paul Ryan is as stupid as he sounds here:”

“The California election system ‘just defies logic to me,’ [former Speaker of The House, Paul] Ryan said during a Washington Post event.

‘“We were only down 26 seats the night of the [midterm] election and three weeks later, we lost basically every California race….’”

‘“In Wisconsin, we knew the next day. Scott Walker, my friend, I was sad to see him lose, but we accepted the results on Wednesday,’ Ryan said.  In California, ‘their system is bizarre; I still don’t completely understand it. There are a lot of races there we should have won.’”

Kilgore adds that, “All in all, the situation in California was well summarized by the statewide elected official in charge of the system, Alex Padilla, [The Secretary of State for the state of California], in a tart response to [then Republican Speaker of The House, Paul] Ryan:”

‘“It is bizarre that Paul Ryan cannot grasp basic voting rights protections,’ Padilla said in a statement to ‘The Hill’….”

But…, “In just [the last] four years, the number of absentee ballots distributed in California has increased by 44 percent. ‘Nearly 13 million voters have received a ballot in the mail, compared to just 9 million in the last gubernatorial election in 2014,’ notes Paul Mitchell, vice president of Political Data Inc.”

‘“In California, we believe in an inclusive and accessible democracy. We provide voters as many opportunities as possible to cast their ballots,’ Padilla’s statement continues. ‘That is why we have no excuse vote by mail, automatic voter registration, same-day voter registration, and early voting. These reforms helped drive California’s historic registration and a 30 year high in midterm turnout.’”

Kilgore then adds, “This brouhaha might not matter if it did not feed the same myths of voter fraud that led Donald Trump to claim without a hint of evidence after the 2016 elections that ‘millions’ of illegal votes had been cast for Hillary Clinton in California, robbing him of a popular-vote plurality nationally. Going into 2020, this sort of loose talk needs to be debunked wherever possible, unless we want to risk the possibility of a GOP election defeat that is not simply questioned but denied.”

Okay Ed Kilgore, and all of your liberal friends…, my turn.

Liberals (democrats) are always quick to dismiss any concerns about voter fraud.  They dismiss these concerns as if you were stating a concern about extraterrestrials (ETs) affecting the voting process.

This is exactly the case and the honest to God’s truth.

Let me state this again, “Liberals (democrats) are always quick to dismiss any concerns about voter fraud.  They dismiss these concerns as if you were stating a concern about extraterrestrials (ETs) affecting the voting process.”

All I have to say is, “E.T…., phone home.”

The group “Judicial Watch” is currently suing California and Los Angeles County over “dirty” voter registration rolls.

Before I go any further, let’s see who “Judicial Watch” is.

Per “Judicial Watch’s” website:

Judicial Watch, Inc., a conservative, non-partisan educational foundation, promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law. Through its educational endeavors, Judicial Watch advocates high standards of ethics and morality in our nation’s public life and seeks to ensure that political and judicial officials do not abuse the powers entrusted to them by the American people. Judicial Watch fulfills its educational mission through litigation, investigations, and public outreach.

The motto of Judicial Watch is “Because no one is above the law”. To this end, Judicial Watch uses the open records or freedom of information laws and other tools to investigate and uncover misconduct by government officials and litigation to hold to account politicians and public officials who engage in corrupt activities.

Okay, back to talking about unicorns…, ooops, I mean voter fraud.

“Judicial Watch” has filed a federal lawsuit against Los Angeles County and the State of California over their failure to clean their voter rolls and to produce election-related records as required by the federal National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

“Judicial Watch” argues that the State of California and a number of its counties, including the county of Los Angeles, have registration rates exceeding 100%!

According to “Judicial Watch,” “Eleven of California’s 58 counties have registration rates exceeding 100% of the age-eligible citizenry.”

“Los Angeles County has more voter registrations on its voter rolls than it has citizens who are old enough to register.  Specifically, according to data provided to and published by the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), Los Angeles County has a registration rate of 112% of its adult citizen population.”

Why is this important to note?  Well, besides the obvious concerns about potential fraudulent votes, Los Angeles County is particularly noteworthy because of the number of potential voters it represents.

Here are a couple interesting facts:

There are only 7 states that have larger populations than Los Angeles County!

Los Angeles County has a larger population that Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Delaware and Washington DC combined!

 

la county vs 10 statesSo when we’re talking about the numbers of potential fraudulent votes in Los Angeles County, and California overall, we’re talking about millions of votes. That is nothing to sneeze at or dismiss out of hand.

Judicial Watch points out that, “About 21% of all of California’s voter registrations, or more than one in five, are designated as ‘inactive.’”

“California has the highest rate of inactive registrations of any state in the country…, [and] Los Angeles County has the highest number of inactive registrations of any single county in the country.”

Interesting.

Judicial Watch explains that, “Even though a registration is officially designated as “inactive,” it may still be voted on Election Day and is still on the official voter registration list. The inactive registrations of voters who have moved to a different state “are particularly vulnerable to fraudulent abuse by a third party” because the voter who has moved “is unlikely to monitor the use of or communications concerning an old registration.” Inactive registrations “are also inherently vulnerable to abuse by voters who plan to fraudulently double-vote in two different jurisdictions on the same Election Day.”

Judicial Watch has sent numerous written requests for public records pertaining to their voter lists and inactive registrations, but was stonewalled each time. In other cases their requests were just ignored by “The People’s Republic of California.”

“California may have the dirtiest election rolls in the country,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Federal law requires states to take reasonable steps to clean up their voting rolls. Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections. This lawsuit aims to ensure that citizens of California can have more confidence that their elections are fair and honest.”

Judicial Watch has previously filed successful lawsuits against Ohio and Indiana that resulted in those states taking several actions to clean up their voting rolls.  Judicial Watch is currently suing Kentucky over its failure to remove ineligible voters, and is suing the State of Maryland and Montgomery County over their failure to release voting-related records.

So, there you have it.

Please tell us again, Ed Kilgore, how, “Voter fraud is just a Republican myth.”

Please tell us again, Mr. Kilgore, how “stupid” we are for even thinking there might be something to be concerned about here.

Please explain to us again, Mr. Alex Padilla, how, “In California, we believe in an inclusive and accessible democracy. We provide voters as many opportunities as possible to cast their ballots.”

What this translates to is, “In California, we believe in giving democrats access to every opportunity in order to guarantee their candidates get as many votes as is necessary to win.”

Please tell us again, Ed Kilgore, about, “The myths of voter fraud that led Donald Trump to claim without a hint of evidence after the 2016 elections that ‘millions’ of illegal votes had been cast for Hillary Clinton in California, robbing him of a popular-vote plurality nationally.”

Again, we see that President Trump was probably right, again.

Please tell us again, Mr. Kilgore, how, “Going into 2020, this sort of loose talk needs to be debunked wherever possible, unless we want to risk the possibility of a GOP election defeat that is not simply questioned but denied.”

Oh…, Mr. Kilgore, you mean like how you and your democrat friends have not only “questioned but denied” Hillary Clinton’s defeat in 2016?

Is that what you mean?

Again we see that the hypocrisy and shamelessness of the democrats knows no bounds.  They are willing to do absolutely ANYTHING to promote their candidates and their agenda…, ANYTHING.

As patriotic Americans, it is our duty to realize this and to continue to fight for honesty and fairness in the voting process and in our government in general.

“Bullying journalists is not presidential.” – Fox News anchor Julie Banderas

President Trump called out a pair of Fox News personalities last Sunday on Twitter, saying that FOX’s John Roberts and Gillian Turner, “…have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations that the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN&NBC!”

According to Erik Pedersen for “Deadline Hollywood,” “A Fox colleague [Former Fox Report Weekend regular and current fill-in anchor Julie Banderas] hit back on the same social media platform.”

“By going on Twitter and insulting two of our journalists @realDonaldTrump is putting a target on their backs. In turn his followers will then attack @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner in support on Twitter. Bullying journalists is not Presidential. Period. https://t.co/xayShIojYj — Julie Banderas (@JulieBanderas) January 28, 2019”

“A few minutes earlier, Banderas had replied to a ‘rando’ [a random tweeter] who counseled her that if she ‘can’t stand some criticism, time to find a new line of work.’ She hit back, with an ‘@POTUS’ target:

‘We can and do stand plenty of criticism every day which is fine coming from everyday viewers. Our jobs are not meant to please others. But the office of the @POTUS ought not to be the one lashing out. That’s not how this country works. That’s not how Freedom of the Press works. https://t.co/buakHRRwPO — Julie Banderas (@JulieBanderas) January 28, 2019,”

Wow…, where do I begin?

Let’s begin by suggesting that Julie Banderas put her “big girl” pants on, first of all.

Next, let’s deal with Ms. Banderas’ understanding of what “bullying” is.

Julie Banderas is saying that because President Trump accused her colleagues, John Roberts and Gillian Turner, of “…having even less understanding of the Wall negotiations that the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN&NBC!” that The President was “bullying” them.

You call this “bullying?”

Really?

How protected you must have been growing up Ms. Banderas.

You were obviously a regular visitor to the various “safe zones” back in college.

I don’t view this as “bullying,” Ms. Banderas…, I view this as The President stating his opinion, which we all still have the right to do the last time I checked (even though Nancy Pelosi is now in charge of The House of Representatives).

I tend to agree with the random tweeter who suggested that if Julie Banderas, “can’t stand some criticism, time to find a new line of work.”

Lastly, Ms. Banderas says, “We can and do stand plenty of criticism every day which is fine coming from everyday viewers. Our jobs are not meant to please others. But the office of the @POTUS ought not to be the one lashing out. That’s not how this country works. That’s not how Freedom of the Press works.”

Thank you Julie for explaining to us all “how this country works,” and how “freedom of the press works.” It must be an awful burden on you to be responsible for being the caretaker of this guarded knowledge!

The fact is that you obviously have no idea how this country works, and that the “freedom of the press” does not override or come before the freedom of speech of all citizens…, including The President of the United States.

Ms. Banderas has also said, “People used to call President Obama stupid.  People used to call him a Muslim.  People used to call him under-qualified, a sellout to America, a hater of Israel.  I mean they called him every name in the book, but you didn’t see him lash out.”

Besides the fact that all of that is true…, who was saying these things?  You can find someone saying just about anything at any time.  The difference with President Trump is that it is other elected politicians (mayors, governors, congress people and senators) saying these hurtful things about him.  It is the “biased, liberal, fake news media saying libelous things about President Trump.  It is the whole Hollywood and entertainment community saying exaggerated untruths about President Trump.

You see Julie, who “they” are makes quite a difference.  What “people” you’re talking about makes quite a difference.

Being a professional “journalist,” you should be able to make that determination on your own.

People in a position to influence others, who are confused, ought not be spouting their ill-informed beliefs for the consumption of the general public.  In this case, they need to be “lashed out” at.  And if the one “lashing out” at these people, who should know better, is The President, then so be it.

Let’s get one thing clear…, Robert Mueller knew from the start there was no Russian collusion by President Trump or anyone on his team.

Yes folks…, it’s true.

The Mueller investigation was designed to be a diversionary tactic to keep our eyes off of “the swamp” (specifically former President Obama, his administration, the FBI, the DOJ, Hillary Clinton and the DNC).  It was designed to be an ongoing attack against President Trump and an ongoing point of contention to be used by the “biased, liberal, fake news media.”  And it was conceived as a “witch hunt” to punish anyone who may have been a friend or an associate of Donald Trump.

The Mueller investigation is a “bastard child” that was born out of illegality, illegitimacy and false pretenses to begin with.

Yet this treasonous and shameless excuse for an “investigation” is still breathing and still moving forward.

So what’s the latest jewel in Mueller’s crown?

The indictment of Roger Stone, who was a former political consultant for Donald Trump, up until August of 2015.

According to Ashley May of USA TODAY, “A group of heavily armed FBI agents stormed Roger Stone’s Florida home on Friday morning, as seen in a dramatic CNN video.”

“About a dozen officers outfitted with flashlights, bullet-proof vests and tactical gear surrounded the home.”

Ya…, you wouldn’t want this 66 year grandfather to make a run for it!  Ha!

“In the video, an agent is heard pounding on the door and announcing ‘FBI! Open the door!’ Then, he shouts ‘FBI! Warrant!’”

“The door opens and a shadow that appears to be Stone can be seen. CNN reports Stone answered the door wearing his glasses and sleepwear.”

This whole episode was obviously choreographed for dramatic effect.

And how was it again that CNN happened to be there to document the whole thing?

Anyway…, back to Stone’s indictment.

What is Stone being indicted for?

Collusion with the Russians?

No.

Tampering with the election of 2016?

No.

According to Alex Pappas and Catherine Herridge of Fox News, “President Trump’s former longtime political adviser is charged with obstruction, making false statements and witness tampering over his alleged contact with Trump campaign officials about WikiLeaks.”

 

 

“For months, Stone has warned that he could be indicted, saying in public he believed Mueller was investigating whether he had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks releasing hacked emails of Democrats during the 2016 campaign. Stone has repeatedly denied the accusation.”

So just to be clear here…, we’re not supposed to be upset about what was in the emails, but just the fact that they were hacked and released.

Roger Stone has questioned, “Where is the crime?  I engaged in politics.”

The problem, Roger, is that you engaged in politics in support of Donald Trump and not “the swamp.”

“No matter how much pressure they put on me, no matter what they say I will not bear false witness against Donald Trump,” Stone has said. “I will not do what Michael Cohen has done and make up lies to ease the pressure on myself.”

“Mueller’s investigation, which was initially ordered to look into the 2016 election, has gone on for more than a year and half.  It has expanded to probe financial crimes of Trump associates before the election, conversations Trump’s national security adviser had with the Russians during the transition and whether Trump obstructed justice with his comments and actions related to the probe,” reports Alex Pappas.

Let’s take a look down memory lane and see the list of people charged by Mueller and his “hit squad:”

Twenty-six Russian nationals and three Russian companies have been charged with interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

These charges were made “for show” only.  These individuals and companies will never have their day in court here, or have an opportunity to defend themselves.  These charges were a waste of time and just an easy opportunity to keep the Russian narrative alive.

“Other convictions include: former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who both pleaded guilty to making false statements in 2017.”

So no charges involving Russian collusion or charges implicating President trump in any way.

“Former campaign adviser Rick Gates in 2018 pleaded guilty and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted and later pleaded guilty in a separate financial crimes case dating back before the 2016 election.”

Again, no charges involving Russian collusion or charges implicating President trump in any way.

“Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements in a case brought by Mueller in November. Alex van der Zwaan, a London-based lawyer, pleaded guilty to making false statements this year, and Richard Pinedo, a California man, pleaded guilty to identity fraud in 2018.”

So…, again, no charges involving Russian collusion or charges implicating President Trump in any way.

In summary, none of President Trump’s associates or anyone connected to President Trump in any way have been charged with crimes related to collusion.

So there you have it.

So what do we really have here?

A “WITCH HUNT” and A FARCE!!!

Just as President Trump has said, over and over.

“The swamp” will not go quietly.  In fact it isn’t going anywhere.  But, we can make a dent in it, and at least make them realize we are paying attention now, and the effort to expose their agendas and propaganda are not going away.
