California sounds like a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.

On second thought, it doesn’t really sound like a place I’d care to visit anymore either!

Don’t get me wrong, I lived in northern California for close to a year, and I loved it…, but that was over 40 years ago.

Things there sure appear to have changed.

Besides the earthquakes, forest fires, oppressive taxes, expensive gas, poop and homeless people laying around everywhere, an out of control drug problem, and over 5 million undocumented immigrants, we now see a steep rise in shoplifting, thefts, and criminal activity across state.

Just to put some of this into perspective, there are 26 states with smaller populations than California’s illegal immigrant population!

And California is nicknamed “the golden state?”

It sounds more like a living hell to me now…, unless you’re an illegal immigrant, a welfare warrior, a drug addict, a criminal, or an elite liberal who can afford to insulate themselves from the mess they’ve helped to create.

Barnini Chakraborty of Fox News reports that, “In 2014, Prop[osition] 47 was passed to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to go after serious, violent offenders. Data shows that after Prop 47 passed, shoplifting and thefts increased.”

Gee…, who could have predicted that?  Apparently not any of the democrats out there in California.

aca 11

“Fox News spoke with San Francisco and Oakland shop owners about the recent rise in crime.”

“In a lighted garage on one of San Francisco’s busiest streets, a young man in baggy trousers and messy brown hair pulled down his pants. He had been hiding two pairs of stolen jeans with the tags still on them. He handed them to another man waiting nearby, took some money, pulled up his pants and headed back into another store on Market Street — home to the city’s high-end designers and big-chain retail shops.”

“These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more ‘serious’ crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.”

“Over in the City by the Bay’s famous Tenderloin district, Cassie, a 21-year-old mother of two and a former heroin junkie, told Fox News that when times were tough, she too has stolen from stores.”

‘“If my babies need diapers or formula, who is going to get that for me? No one. I have to do it,’ she said. ‘They ain’t out here arresting people for (shoplifting) and everyone knows it.’”

“Proposition 47 is seen by critics as one of California’s biggest blunders. Supported by the state Democratic Party and championed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the referendum was passed by a wide margin in 2014. The idea behind it was to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to focus on violent offenders.”

“Since Proposition 47 was passed, there has been an increase in theft across the state. Cities like San Francisco have seen organized crime rings turn shoplifting into a well-organized racket involving desperate thieves and unscrupulous black-market re-sellers.”

“Among the nation’s 20 largest cities, San Francisco now has the highest rate of property crime, which includes theft, shoplifting and vandalism.”

Wow!  You would have to say that San Francisco is a liberal policy over-achiever!

You should be in line to win some kind of award from your fearless leader, and representative, Nancy Pelosi.

“Del Seymour, founder of the non-profit Code Tenderloin, told Fox News that fencers – often from Mexico and Guatemala – set up shop in the middle of the day and night around the city’s United Nations Plaza area. He said he’s also noticed that the stealers and dealers have gotten bolder by the day. The retail heists taking place, he said, aren’t some small-time operation but instead a sophisticated network of international dealers who cross the border to buy stolen goods.”

“Seymour believes San Francisco is stuck in a cycle and, until it’s able to pull itself out, the problem will continue. Drug addicts, who are often homeless, need money for a fix so they walk into a store, steal merchandise, sell it for half the value and use the money they made to buy more drugs. Seymour added that the mayor and elected city officials have been spending too much time and money trying to coddle addicts and have done nothing to eliminate San Francisco’s drug problem.”

“The problem isn’t just San Francisco-based. Across the state, retailers say they have been hit hard by shoplifters since Prop 47 went into effect.”

“In San Diego County, 7-Eleven franchise owner Jassi Dhillon told NBC 7 that he has to deal with shoplifters at all six of his store locations.

‘“It’s happening every day, hour by hour,’ he said.”

“Dhillon said shoplifting isn’t a priority to law enforcement and said when cops do show up, the shoplifter has left the store or isn’t concerned about the citation they are issued.”

‘“It’s becoming a lifestyle for us now because we can’t do anything much except take the loss,’ he said.”

“Rachel Michelin, president of the California Retailers Association, said shoplifting is not only hurting retailers but is also ‘becoming a public safety issue for consumers.’”

“She said black-market dealers frequently cross state lines because they know California will go easy on them if caught.”

‘“They know what they’re doing. They will bring in calculators and get all the way up to the $950 limit,’ Michelin told Fox News, adding that ‘one person will go into a store, fill up their backpack, come out, dump it out and go right back in and do it all over again.’”

“Michelin said she’s seen footage from member retailers that she described as ‘completely insane.’”

‘“They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it. They know no one is going to prosecute them.’ — Rachel Michelin, president of California Retailers Association.”

‘“They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it,’ she said. ‘They know no one is going to prosecute them. The district attorneys aren’t.’”

“She added that there are even more sinister acts afoot. Many out-of-state crime rings use children to do their dirty work because they know they’re low on the totem pole of prosecutions.”

‘“There are folks that are using and exploiting children,’ she said. ‘But I also think that teenagers know that there are no consequences anymore. It’s part of a game. If you get caught, all you have to do is get out of the store.’”

‘“Law enforcement [officials] are trying to protect the streets and then they might do a sting and arrest a bunch of people but then the district attorney will drop it or downgrade the charges,’ she said.”

“It’s a frustrating dynamic for sure, but until the state finds a fix, retailers have been reaching into their own pockets to hire private security guards but even then there are no guarantees that the stealing will stop. In fact, all that private guards can do is observe and report thefts.”

“Frustrated business owners say they feel their needs are being ignored by elected officials.”

“Fox News asked Democratic Mayor London Breed’s office six separate times for an interview or to comment on this story. Her office did not respond to a single request about the growing crisis. Fox News also reached out to the district attorney’s office multiple times but did not get a response.”

Ha!  No kidding!

How dare anyone try and hold these democrats accountable for their actions?!

‘“Big and small businesses are hit hard financially by these thefts, which often endanger employees and discourage law-abiding customers. SFPD is collaborating closely with local businesses and our partner agencies to deter and investigate these crimes to make our city even safer and enable businesses to prosper,’ San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said in the press release forwarded to Fox News.”

Okay, Chief.  You just keep on collaborating there while you keep on kissing the backsides of all of the “all talk and no do (at least no doing of anything positive or effective) politicians there.

As with most liberal policies, law abiding, productive citizens, receive little or no consideration.

They are just left to pay the bills and contend with the fallout of all of these great liberal ideas!

Here we go again with claims of “phantom” future evidence against The President!

ed 1

For over two years we heard from the democrats about how Robert “the clueless tool” Mueller was going to destroy President Trump.

They spent 30-40 million dollars, issued over 2,500 subpoenas, and came up with NOTHING!

NOTHING!

ed 5

ed 4

ed 6

We heard daily from the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” about all of this other evidence that was going to surface, which never did.  NOTHING!

NOTHING!

ed 7

ed 8

We heard regularly from “shifty” Adam Schiff, and how he had all of this evidence showing criminal activity against The President, which never managed to make an appearance.  NOTHING!

NOTHING!

ed 10

ed 2

Now we have another baseless, bogus investigation of The President and his call with the Ukrainian president, and we have another liberal liar, making libelous claims about supposed criminal activity, and referring to “evidence,” which in reality is nothing but wishful thinking.

According to Joshua Nelson of Fox News, “President Trump ‘committed a crime by soliciting the Ukraine government to get involved in the U.S. election,’ the former DNC Chairman and Pennsylvania Governor, ‘Mister Ed’ Rendell told ‘America’s Newsroom.’”

ed 3

Your level of confusion is impressive “Mister Ed!”

President Trump was referring to events that occurred prior to the 2016 election, not about events leading up to the 2020 election.

‘“I think we got to watch what rolls out in the next month or so. I think there’s more evidence to come and I think as the evidence rolls out, it’s going to become more and more clear that the president not only broke the law here but he abused his power at the detriment of the United States of America,’ Rendell said.”

Yes, “Mister Ed,” you do have to “watch what rolls out in the next month or so,” because that’s all you have to pin your hopes on!

NOTHING has managed to “roll out” so far!

NOTHING!

“I think as the evidence rolls out, it’s going to become more and more clear that the president not only broke the law here but he abused his power.”

WHERE, AND HOW MANY TIMES, HAVE WE HEARD THAT LINE BEFORE!!!

I swear…, the democrats must really think we’re all idiots.

They sure are sticking with the fascists’ playbook, however.

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” – Adolf Hitler

And…,

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.” – Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Nazi Propaganda Minister

This is when the democrats typically roll out Ed Rendell…, when they want some “tool” or “party flunky” to regurgitate the latest liberal narrative, and keep “the lie” alive.

‘“There is not a trace of evidence that the Bidens did anything wrong and in my judgment — and I was district attorney for eight years — the president committed a crime,’ he [Rendell] said.”

OHHHH, NOOOO!

Joe Biden didn’t do anything wrong, except come out and say he did EXACTLY what the democrats are accusing President Trump of doing…, which he didn’t do!

Unbelievable.

“Your judgement,” Mr. Rendell, is about as valuable as a ticket to that failed Bill and Hillary Clinton show, which they ended up giving tickets away to, and then actually paid people to go in order to save some face.

ed12

Nothing at all like a Trump rally, hey Hill?

ed 13

On a related note…, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called [‘Shifty’ Adam] Schiff a ‘patriot.’”

The first question that comes to mind is a “patriot” for what country?  The People’s Republic of California?  Certainly not The United States of America.

ed 11

“The intelligence committee chairman [‘Shifty’ Adam Schiff] has admitted he should have been clearer about his contact with the ‘whistleblower’ who filed a complaint about Trump’s July phone call with the Ukrainian president.”

Which really means he should have been more careful so as not to have been caught!

“Schiff [then] recited what he later called a ‘parody’ reading of ‘the call’ at a House hearing, drawing harsh criticism from Republicans.”

ed 9

This “parody,” as he now calls his comments before a congressional hearing, were never prefaced as such.  We were led to believe Schiff was quoting what the President had said on the call.  That was until The President released an actual transcript of the call, forcing “Shifty” Adam Schiff to eat his words.

Words must not have many calories…, because Congressman Schiff has been eating a lot of his words lately…, and yet he is still so skinny!

WINNING!

What if a new “whistleblower” “blew the whistle” on the two original “whistleblowers?”

Hey…, one good “whistle blow” deserves another…, don’t you agree?

blowers 7

First off…, what exactly is a “whistleblower?”

According to Merriam-Webster, a “whistleblower” is, “an employee who brings wrongdoing by an employer or other employees to the attention of a government or law enforcement agency and who is commonly vested by statute with rights and remedies for retaliation.”

In this case, the “statute with rights and remedies for retaliation” is The Whistleblower Protection Act.  “The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 is a United States federal law that protects federal whistleblowers who work for the government and report the possible existence of an activity constituting a violation of law, rules, or regulations, or mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority or a substantial and specific danger to public health and safety.

I feel a case could be made against the two original whistleblowers that their partisan, premeditated, disingenuous, frivolous and fraudulent claims, could be considered a “gross waste of funds,” not to mention an illegitimate attempt to harm the reputation and effectiveness of a sitting president.

How much taxpayer money is being wasted here?

The Mueller witch hunt is said to have wasted well over $200 million.

And if that’s what they said it costed, then it was probably twice that!

If this impeachment hoax/circus goes on much longer, I’m sure it won’t take long before it approaches tens of millions of dollars as well.

It has become pretty apparent that the whistleblowers coordinated their complaints with impeach-happy democrat members of Congress, in order to continue to harass and impede President Trump.

blowers 8

It’s a shame that the democrats stooped low enough to use the whistleblower system as their chosen method to attack The President this time.

The whistleblower program is a well-intentioned law that has been co-opted by the democrats in order to try and “insulate” their accusers from any kind of cross examination or repercussions.

blowers 11

I must admit that it was an imaginative scheme.

The only problem is the democrats chose to “blow the whistle” on President Trump for something the Obama administration and Vice-President Biden actually did!

Ha!  What a bunch of maroons!

blowers 10

blowers 5

blowers 4

blowers 1

Then…, Nancy Pelosi chose to start her unofficial impeachment inquiry based on the whistleblower’s second hand, hearsay, knowledge, a day before President Trump released an actual transcript of the conversation in question, showing there was nothing referred to that could be considered improper at all.

blowers 13

Like they say, “Stupid is as stupid does.” – Forrest Gump

blowers 3

It will be interesting to see how the democrats choose to try and save some face.

The democrats have made their filthy bed, and now they want push everyone into it.

They don’t even want to lie in it!

Will Ms. Pelosi pull the impeachment plug on “the fairy tale impeachment,” or will she and her co-conspirators choose to double down and come up with even more lies and disinformation?

Stay tuned for the next episode of “As the Stomach Turns!”

WINNING!

Who exactly does Nancy “dazed and confused” Pelosi pray to?

Last week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said “I pray for the president all the time,” while talking to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.

My only question is, who might Mrs. Pelosi be praying to?

George Soros?

Barack Obama?

“The Squad?”

Satan?

It certainly can’t be God.

prayer 2

Or she might just be lying and she really hasn’t prayed at all.

I’m going with “she’s lying and hasn’t prayed at all,” or Satan.

According to Shira Tarlo of Salon.com, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., revealed that she frequently prays for President Donald Trump while discussing the allegations that he urged Ukraine to procure dirt one of his chief political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden, with assistance from the Justice Department.”

prayer 1

‘“It’s really sad. We have to be very prayerful.  I pray for the president all the time,’ Pelosi said Friday morning in an exclusive interview with ‘Morning Joe.’ ‘I pray for the safety of his family — wish he would pray for the safety of other families and do something on guns — but I also pray that God will illuminate him to see right from wrong.’”

prayer 3

It’s hard to swallow all of these God references from a woman who would fight to keep the practice of abortion, and the killing of millions of babies annually, alive at all costs.

prayer 4

“Pelosi’s comments came a day after the public release of a complaint filed by a whistleblower in the intelligence community. The complaint discusses a July 25 call in which Trump repeatedly urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to ‘initiate or continue an investigation’ into Biden. The whistleblower named Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and his attorney general, William Barr, as his ‘personal envoys on these matters’ and alleged the White House engaged in a scheme to cover up Trump’s conduct.”

Let me go on record right now by saying this “whistle blower,” and I’m really coming to detest that term, is nothing more than a “swampy tool” who is being used by the liberal, anti-Trump, machine.

Think of a poor man’s “Peter Strzok” or “Lisa Page.”

The “complaint” filed by the “whistle blower,” is a well-crafted legal document, which was not just put together by someone filing a genuine complaint of concern.

The democrats knew exactly what was in the transcript released by President Trump before he even released it, thanks to their spy, the “whistle blower.”

This will all come out very soon.  Mark my words.

“The explosive revelations are at the center of House Democrats’ formal impeachment inquiry into the president, which was announced earlier this week by Pelosi.”

prayer 10

‘“This is no cause for any joy. This a very sad time for our country,’ Pelosi said Friday on MSNBC. ‘The impeachment of a president is as serious as our congressional responsibilities can be apart from declaring war. We have to be very prayerful, and we always have to put country before party.’”

Excuse me…, but I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

I really wish Nancy would keep “my country” out of her mouth.

It’s just disgusting and embarrassing.

prayer 6

I would have to agree with Nancy, however, when she says, “This is a very sad time for our country.” It is the democrats who are causing all of the sadness, however.

prayer 12

prayer 11

‘“This is about the national security of our country, and the president of the United States being disloyal to his oath of office, jeopardizing our national security and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections,’ the speaker added.”

Just like the Russian collusion hoax was, right Nancy?

Like I said earlier…, my nickname for her is Nancy “dazed and confused” Pelosi.  The prior paragraph demonstrates her level of confusion pretty well I believe.

prayer 9

prayer 8

‘“This is my wheelhouse, as I said to the president,’ Pelosi declared. ‘Twenty-five years of experience in intelligence . . . I was there when we wrote the whistleblower laws. I was there when we wrote the law establishing the office of the director of national intelligence. That’s only since 2004.’”

Yes…, we know Nancy…, you’ve been in Congress a looooong time.

Way too long.

I notice you failed to sign the Constitution when it was enacted.

I apologize…, actually, I believe you were elected a few years after that.

prayer 13

Mrs. Pelosi has now become a merely a sad caricature of herself.

I’ve heard it said that if you want to find out what Nancy is going to say today, look and see what Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tweeted last night.

prayer 7

And there you have it…, the clueless leading the confused.

Lord, help us all.

Hey…, if it’s good enough for Nancy…

prayer 14

All the Dems are Kung Fu fighting…, their tongues are fast as lightning!

What we’ve been seeing is that, apparently, a white person cannot be a “true” liberal, and that it’s okay for one liberal to drop the race card on another liberal…, if that other liberal happens to be white.

A couple of weeks ago we had Kamala Harris insinuating that Joe Biden had demonstrated racist behavior in the past…, and now we hear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accusing Nancy Pelosi of discriminating against and singling out some of the house representatives of color.

Interesting.

This is much better than watching “The Young and the Restless,” or “As the World Turns!”

Scott Jennings of USA Today says, “The Democratic Party is a mess.”

“If we learned anything lately it is that the Democratic Party is an absolute mess.

Fault lines are deeper than ever between the young socialists and the old establishment figures who run the place.”

Aka, “The Squad” and the “term limits poster child,” Nancy Pelosi.

mess 3

Additionally, “At the first primary debate, Harris assailed Biden for opposing federally mandated busing, an extremely unpopular policy among people of all races and political parties. Debate viewers were left to believe that Harris — who emotionally attributed busing to her getting a quality education — supported the federal mandates.”

mess 12

Harris also said on the debate stage that she, “would eliminate all private insurance,” and then the next day said she, “wouldn’t.”

“The prospect of nominating an old white male for president continues to deeply divide the Democratic Party, and the Woke Folk (at least the ones not supporting Bernie Sanders) are desperate for someone — anyone — to destroy America’s elderly political patriarchy. Policy, principle, and experience are irrelevant — race, gender or sexual orientation are the only credentials required to satisfy the angry [liberal democrat] mob.”

The House speaker recently gave an interview to the New York Times in which she cast aspersions on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other young Democratic women of color who criticized her for giving in on the Senate border funding bill.

mess 2

Though she didn’t mention them by name, Pelosi was referring to Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, in addition to Ocasio-Cortez. Otherwise known as “The Squad,” or “AOC plus three.”

‘“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,’ Pelosi said. ‘But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.’”

“Insulting AOC’s ‘Twitter world’ is to the “Woke” Folk what a good ‘yo mama’ joke was to my friends on the school playground. Predictably, AOC punched right back at Pelosi, calling the speaker’s legislative moves ‘a huge mistake.’”

In case your wondering, “woke” is a trendy and relative new term used among our liberal friends which means,  “having an awareness of issues concerning social justice and racial justice.”  “Woke people are allowed to point fingers at all the rest of us “deplorables.”

According to Veronica Stracqualursi, Manu Raju and Sunlen Serfaty of CNN, “Ocasio-Cortez calls Pelosi’s ‘singling out’ of Democratic women of color ‘disrespectful’”

‘“It’s really just pointing out the pattern, right? We’re not talking about just progressives, it’s signaling out four individuals,’ Ocasio-Cortez told CNN on Capitol Hill. ‘And knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration detention, I think it’s just worth asking why.’”

What?

And no, we don’t know the amount of “death threats” you get, or from who.

And what does “concentration detention have to do with any of this?

And how do you “signal out” people?

I’m assuming she means “singling out” people.

mess 4

mess 1

mess 6

mess 5

BUT, when asked if she thinks Pelosi has racial animus or is racist, Ocasio-Cortez said unequivocally, “No, no, absolutely not, absolutely not.”

Ha!

Well, then what were you exactly saying Alexandria?

I mean, we all have ears, we all understand English, and we all heard you basically call Speaker Pelosi a racist…, whether you want to come right out and it or not.

Then…, Democrat Rep. Lacy Clay of Missouri accused Ocasio-Cortez of using “the race card” in her comments to the Post.

mess 10

‘“What a weak argument,’ Clay said. ‘Because you can’t get your way, and because you are -, you’re getting pushback, you resort to use the race card? Unbelievable. Unbelievable to me.’”

OH – MY – GOD!!!

Wait…, let me read that again.

Are you kidding me?!!!

Democrats do this all day, every day, to conservatives…, but that’s okay?

But it’s “unbelievable” and “weak” when a democrat resorts to this when dealing with another democrat.

Does the hypocrisy know no bounds?!

Representative Clay then added, “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.  It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion,” according to Sam Dorman and Chad Pergram of Fox News.

Ooooh, “level of ignorance.”  That’s a good one!

And again…, “It has no place in a civil discussion,” UNLESS they’re dealing with conservatives.

The far left wing of the democrat party has just adjusted their parameters.  Democrat moderates to them are now on the same level that conservatives are to democrat moderates.

Ha!  Isn’t it funny how that works now?

“The lawmaker closed his remarks by suggesting the four freshmen could hurt Democratic chances in upcoming elections.”

Oh, we can only hope Representative Lacy, we can only hope!

We’ll all tune in next week for the continuing saga of “The Young and the Restless” meets “All My Children!”

WINNING!

“Island girl, what you wanting with the white man’s world?” – Elton John…, or the continuing saga of the democrats’ “Orgy Island.”

According to Gregg Re of Fox News, “Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein arrested, accused of sex trafficking minors […again].”

“Christine Pelosi, a Democratic National Committee (DNC) official and daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, warned conspicuously on Saturday evening that it is ‘quite likely that some of our faves are implicated’ in the ‘horrific’ sex-trafficking case against politically connected financier Jeffrey Epstein.”

Conspicuously?

I think this is what they call “getting out in front of a story,” in order to soften the impact of the story when everything actually comes out.

This is how you know some damning information for the democrats is actually on the horizon.

orgy 5

I do have a question regarding Ms. Pelosi’s admission, though.

How would she know it’s “quite likely that some of our faves are implicated in this horrific sex-trafficking case?”

I mean, Christine Pelosi is only an official for the DNC.  It’s not like she’s an elected official or an official for a government agency who would be privy to any information regarding an on-going investigation.

Could it be she’s being directed by her mommy?

orgy 7

Please don’t tell me that suggestion surprises you.

At the very least she’s being fed information and direction from someone in “the swamp” through the DNC.

Anyway…

“Epstein is due in court following his sudden arrest Saturday in New York on NEW sex-trafficking charges involving allegations dating to the early 2000s, according to law enforcement officials.  He has been accused of paying underage girls for massages and sexually abusing them at his mansion in Palm Beach, Fla., and in New York City.  His 72-acre private estate on the Virgin Islands, a home said to be nicknamed ‘Orgy Island,’ also has been under scrutiny.”

orgy 4

‘“This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice,’ Pelosi tweeted. ‘It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may – whether on Republicans or Democrats.’”

This means, “I’m going to attempt to appear fair-minded, but I’m already aware that we’re primarily talking about democrats here.  The case is “horrific,” but only in as much as it is actually coming out and implicating and identifying our “faves.”  And “justice” for these young women is really a non-issue, as we saw in the earlier case against Epstein.

“Epstein’s arrest, first reported by The Daily Beast, came amid renewed scrutiny of the once-secret 2008 plea deal that ended the federal investigation against him.”

orgy 3

“He [Epstein] ultimately served 13 months in jail and registered as a sex offender after pleading guilty to two lesser state prostitution charges, with one involving a girl whom prosecutors called a prostitute — even though she was only 14 years old.”

“Epstein faced a possible life sentence prior to that plea deal, which has been challenged in Florida federal court.”

“U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra of Florida ruled earlier this year that Epstein’s victims should have been consulted under federal law about the deal, and he was weighing whether to invalidate the non-prosecution agreement, or NPA, that protected Epstein from federal charges.”

Details, details!

‘“Epstein faced up to life in prison, but never went to trial, over allegations he sexually molested dozens of underage girls at his Palm Beach mansion, senior correspondent Rick Leventhal reports.”

Wow…, that is a real sweetheart deal!  That’s what being able to name some very prominent “swamp dweller” names will buy you.  Either that or an “accidental” suicide!

orgy 2

“It was unclear exactly to whom Pelosi was referring, but Epstein has long been connected with high-profile figures, including Britain’s Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton.  Court documents obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips flying aboard Epstein’s private jet, known as the ‘Lolita Express,’ and apparently ditched his Secret Service detail on some of the excursions.”

Wait…, what?!

Former President Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips flying aboard Epstein’s private jet?!

AT LEAST 26 trips!

I’m sure “Wild Bill” earned his own version of frequent flyer rewards on Epstein Air!

orgy 1

Flight logs showed Clinton flew on Epstein’s private jet dozens of times.”

orgy 6

A federal judge in Florida ruled that federal prosecutors broke the law a decade ago by failing to consult with and misleading victims of Jeffrey Epstein before making a deal that waived any federal charges in exchange for him pleading guilty to two state felony prostitution charges. |

The immunity agreement and his lenient treatment were the subject of ongoing controversy. The Palm Beach police chief accused the state of giving him preferential treatment, and the Miami Herald said the U.S. Attorney gave Epstein “the deal of a lifetime.”

Oddly enough…, federal prosecutors recently filed court papers in the Florida case contending Epstein’s original plea deal must stand.

‘“The past cannot be undone; the government committed itself to the NPA, and the parties have not disputed that Epstein complied with its provisions,’ prosecutors wrote in the filing.”

You have to ask yourself…, why would federal prosecutors be so concerned about a non-prosecution agreement?  They seem to be acting more like defense attorneys than prosecutors!  It sure smells like “swamp monsters” looking out for each other here to me.

“Nebraska GOP Sen. Ben Sasse released a statement Saturday calling for Epstein to be held without bail pending trial. ‘This monster received a pathetically soft sentence last time and his victims deserve nothing less than justice,’ Sasse said in the statement. ‘Justice doesn’t depend on the size of your bank account.’”

Yes…, it was a “pathetically soft sentence,” but more importantly, anyone else involved with Epstein had their identities protected.

“The ‘arrangement’ guaranteed immunity to ‘any potential co-conspirators’ of Epstein — a provision that signaled prosecutors’ willingness to effectively end the federal investigation into potential crimes committed by Epstein associates. And the deal was kept under seal, meaning potential victims would have difficulty finding out about it and objecting to its terms. Some reportedly only found out about the deal from hearing about it on television.”

“The [Miami] Herald identified several other apparent signs that prosecutors were working closely with Epstein’s team. A top federal prosecutor on the case, A. Marie Villafaña, wrote to Epstein’s lawyer, Jay Lefkowitz, that she would help his client avoid unwanted press attention,” as reported Julie K. Brown.

Well isn’t that nice!

Isn’t that considerate.

‘“On an “avoid the press” note … I can file the charge in district court in Miami which will hopefully cut the press coverage significantly,’ Villafaña wrote in September 2017. ‘Do you want to check that out?’”

Are you kidding me?!

Just another case of liberal elites demonstrating they operate under a separate and privileged “justice” system.

‘“There are a lot of powerful people –men and women, by the way– who take advantage of poor vulnerable women,’ she added, ‘whether they are underage, or even women who are young and come to this country trying to make a life for themselves.’”

Oh, you mean like all of the child smuggling currently taking place on our southern border?

But that’s another argument for another day.

I’ll keep my eyes and ears open and keep you posted on what happens with this case, as I’m sure most of the “biased, liberal propaganda, and fake news media” will choose to downplay it or even ignore it altogether.

Try and impeach President Trump!  We dare ‘ya!  We double dare ‘ya!  We double-dog dare ‘ya!!!

What do you call it when an investigator ignores obvious evidence to pursue desired evidence and a desired outcome?

This is what you would call a prejudiced witch hunt.

impeach 6

This is exactly what Robert Mueller, and his partisan team, did for over two years.

I heard Judge Andrew Napolitano, a contributor on Fox News say we should remember that “Robert Mueller was a Marine” and that he still felt that, “Robert Mueller was an honorable man.”

I beg to differ Judge.

It looks like Mr. Mueller traded in his “Marine card” for a “swamp card!”

And that’s coming from another Marine.

“Being a Marine” may buy you a certain level of credibility with some people for starters, but it’s not “credibility carte blanche!”

For an example, Lee Harvey Oswald was a Marine.

And how you can describe Mueller as anything remotely close to honorable is beyond me.

Unless you’re talking about “honor among thieves?!”  This is the understanding that criminals do not compromise the activities of other criminals!

If that’s the kind of honor you’re referring to, Judge…, I guess I could go along with that.

impeach 5

Even though Robert Mueller failed in his mission to find (or produce) any legal means to take down President Trump, he’s still doing what he can to pathetically hand-off this invalid and ill-gotten investigation to Congress, so that they may continue their own prejudiced, partisan, witch hunt.

This brings us to Nancy “Chicken Little, the sky is falling” Pelosi!

impeach 3

Could it be that “Chicken Little” is chicken?

Could it be that Nancy “Chicken Little, the sky is falling” Pelosi is the voice of reason for the democrats right now?

That’s a scary thought, but it looks like that is the case.

All it would take would be for Nancy to cut the swamp dogs loose and this impeachment circus would be off and running.

impeach 2

This first part of the impeachment process only “brings charges against a civil officer of government for crimes alleged to have been committed.”

You can charge anyone with anything and allege anyone did anything as well.

impeach 4

“Impeachment” is solely a political process…, not a criminal process.

The “impeachment game” is not a game that would end well for the democrats…, and “Negative Nancy” is at least smart enough to realize that.

She likes being in charge of the U.S. Congress more than she hates President Trump…, but the rest of the democrats in Congress don’t have that position of power to consider.  They’ve invested so much time and effort into this fairy tale that they just can’t get away from taking a bite out of that poison apple!

C’mon democrats…, sing along…, Kumbaya my Lord, Kumbaya…, oh Lord Kumbaya.

Our illustrious democrat controlled House of Representatives bravely voted to condemn “all hate,” last week!

Does that even need to be voted on?

Do they need a vote to instruct their members to keep breathing?

Well…, they didn’t really vote to condemn “all hate.”

It’s still okay to “hate” President Trump, anyone in his family and anyone associated with him, politically or otherwise.

It’s still okay to “hate” those evil “pro-lifers.”

It’s still okay to “hate” those people who wear those red “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hats.

It’s still okay to “hate” those uneducated and deplorable Trump supporters.

It’s still okay to “hate” conservatives in general.

There…, you see?  There’s still plenty of hate to go around!

Democrat Representative, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, created an internal uproar after she insinuated that backers of Israel exhibited dual loyalty.  And this wasn’t her first swipe at Jewish people and supporters of Israel.  This is becoming a common occurrence for her.

omar 1

Some democrats wanted to distance themselves from Omar’s racism and religious prejudice, but, in the end, they just couldn’t do it.

According Sarah Silbiger of The New York Times, “It started as a resolution condemning anti-Semitism. Then, anti-Muslim bias was added in. After that came white supremacy. And by the end, it cited ‘African-Americans, Native Americans, and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, immigrants and others’ victimized by bigotry.”

So, in other words, it turned into a white person bashing resolution in the end, and Ms. Omar was completely left off the hook.

“The resolution condemning “hateful expressions of intolerance,” (except political intolerance, as I noted above) which passed the House by an overwhelming 407-to-23 vote Thursday afternoon, was as much a statement of Democrats’ values as their factionalism. Caught in the middle was Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who worked for days to quell the internal uproar that erupted after a freshman Democrat, Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, insinuated that backers of Israel exhibit dual loyalty.”

‘“I see everything as an opportunity,’ Ms. Pelosi told reporters Thursday morning as she announced the vote. ‘This is an opportunity once again to declare as strongly as possible opposition to anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim statements’ and ‘white supremacist attitudes.’”

“The carefully crafted measure, one Democratic aide called it a ‘kitchen-sink resolution,’ capped an emotional week for Democrats, who found themselves divided along racial and religious lines as they debated how to respond to Ms. Omar.”

Some veteran Jewish Democrats, who had pushed for a measure that would solely condemn anti-Semitism, were equally dismayed.

“We are having this debate because of the language of one of our colleagues, language that suggests Jews like me who serve in the United States in Congress and whose father earned a purple heart fighting the Nazis in the Battle of the Bulge, that we are not loyal Americans,” Representative Ted Deutch, Democrat of Florida, said Thursday morning in an emotional speech on the House floor.

“Why are we unable to singularly condemn anti-Semitism?” Mr. Deutch asked. “Why can’t we call it anti-Semitism and show we’ve learned the lessons of history?”

“Representative Lee Zeldin of New York, one of two Jewish Republicans in the House, voted no, calling the final resolution ‘spineless and disgusting,’ adding, ‘If a Republican member was pushing the anti-Semitism that Representative Omar keeps peddling, this resolution would name names.’”

Ya think?

omar 2

But Ms. Pelosi quickly explained to “reporters” that the resolution was not aimed at Ms. Omar.

“It’s not about her; it’s about these forms of hatred,” Ms. Pelosi said.

“As she spoke to reporters Thursday morning, Ms. Pelosi took a shot at President Trump and his equivocal statements after the deadly white supremacist march in Charlottesville: ‘The president may think there are good people on both sides; we don’t share that view.’”

Of course!  President Trump is the real guilty party here!  How could we forget about him!?

The vote on this resolution comes just weeks after Ms. Omar apologized for saying on Twitter that support for Israel was, “all about the Benjamins baby,” a reference to $100 bills that critics said echoed a common anti-Semitic belief that Jewish money is controlling foreign policy.

“Ms. Pelosi stopped short of asking for another apology from Ms. Omar, saying: ‘It’s up to her to explain.  But I do not believe that she understood the full weight of her words.’”

Ha!  So you’re saying Ms. Omar doesn’t know how talk or express herself correctly, Nancy?  Is that what you’re saying?

It’s funny how liberals are afforded the luxury or “misspeaking,” being taken out of context and misunderstanding how someone else is going to take their words.

None of these options are ever afforded to conservatives and/or republicans.

The President appealed to lawmakers in both parties to, “Rise above partisan politics and define victory as not winning for one party but winning for our country.”  My State of the Union address analysis: Part 2.

Liz Peek for Fox News reported that, “In a speech that was interrupted 102 times by applause, President Trump rocked the House, delivering remarks that were at times moving, funny, inspiring, feisty and visionary.”

I would have to totally agree with Ms. Peek here.  I was very impressed by The President’s tone, his overall presence, and his words.

“He appealed to lawmakers in both parties to rise above partisan politics and define victory as “not winning for one party but winning for our country.”

The President “Framed his speech as a celebration of two great occasions: the 75th anniversary of D-Day that liberated Europe [and saved the world’s civilization] from the Nazis and the 50th anniversary of America’s [Apollo 11] moon landing.  Heroes from both those historic undertakings were in the gallery, personifying the daring and selflessness that has characterized the United States throughout our history.”

He asked Democrats to partner with him in “choosing greatness” and to “keep freedom alive in our souls.”

“He exhorted Congress to ‘think of this very chamber, where lawmakers before you voted to end slavery, to build the railroads and the highways, to defeat fascism, to secure civil rights, to face down an evil empire.’”

The democrat side of the aisle honestly seemed petty and a bit foolish in comparison.

There was even a large group of democrat female representatives who wore white to represent something, or show some kind of unity.  They all characteristically chose to “thumb their noses” at President Trump’s accomplishments, and the country’s historic economic numbers.

Liz Peek added, “The Democrats also pouted as the president listed the economic gains made during his administration. They did not cheer when he said 5.3 million new jobs have been added, including 600,000 manufacturing jobs.”

“Nor did the Democrats cheer when the president cited the all-time low in African-American, Asian-American and Hispanic unemployment and the uptick in the incomes of blue-collar workers.”

“Do Democrats not approve of putting people to work?”

Do they not approve of 5 million people being lifted off of food stamps?

Do they not approve of hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs being brought back to our country?

Do they not approve of us being self-sufficient, energy-wise, in the world?

Do they not approve of our NATO allies finally kicking in their fair share for their own defense spending?

It sure appeared that way, as democrats declined to applaud, and even smirked at the country’s good fortune.

President Trump did manage to break through their grumpiness, however, by pointing to the record number of women working in the United States today and the all-time high number of women in Congress. Even the “women in white” couldn’t help but celebrate themselves.

One of The President’s guests in the gallery was a survivor of Nazi concentration camps who was enjoying his 81st birthday.  It was enjoyable to see the entire House join in singing “Happy Birthday” to him.  That was certainly a first at a State of the Union address.

“In fairness, even while calling for a ‘new era of cooperation,’ [President] Trump threw some partisan zingers into the mix.  He singled out bills recently introduced in Virginia and passed in New York that allow for late-term abortions, and said he would ask Congress to pass legislation banning such procedures.”

“In addition, The President hammered home his determination to secure our ‘dangerous’ border, and the need for a wall.  To make the point, he introduced some family members of an elderly couple killed by an illegal immigrant.  Democrats were not pleased.”

How can you not be concerned with illegal drugs pouting over our southern border?

How can you not be concerned with thousands of young girls and children being taken advantage of by human trafficers at our southern border?

How can you not be concerned with gang members and other dangerous individuals coming across our southern border and committing crimes against and taking the lives of our citizens?

Just who do these democrat representatives represent exactly?

They didn’t account for themselves very well during the State of the Union address in my opinion.

The President added that “Great nations do not fight endless wars,” which is a statement no one can really argue with, as he is winding down our engagements in Afghanistan and Syria.

Liz Peek commented, “But for sure, the most contentious issue, and the one that continues to hang over the country, is immigration. Trump said no other issue better illustrates the divide between the working class and members of the wealthy [elite] political class, who hide behind walls [and gates and armed guards] while blue-collar workers suffer the lower wages, overburdened schools, [crime] and depleted safety nets that illegal immigration causes.”

“It will be interesting to see how Democrats answer that charge.”

“President Trump asked us all to ‘rekindle the bonds of love and loyalty and memory that link us together as citizens, as neighbors, as patriots.’”

“He vowed, as he has before, to put America’s interests first and, notably, promised that America will never be a socialist country.”

“Even Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer applauded that one.”

A CBS poll, conducted during and directly after The President’s speech, showed that 76% of viewers liked what they heard.

Since polling numbers regarding The President typically seem to skew low; that would translate into an 85%-90% positive approval rating of The President’s speech.

I would tend to agree with them.

In retrospect, I’m glad The President didn’t take my advice and hold his own State of the Union address away from The Capitol.  He definitely came away here as being the bigger person, the more reasonable person and the more responsible person.

Congratulations Mr. President.
