Never mind the special counsel; here's the Dems' NEW investigation

Less than 3 minute read

July 26, 2019

Now that the House testimony of vacant-eyed former special counsel Robert Mueller has thoroughly embarrassed the Democrats and cast a huge shadow of doubt over the entire investigation, the Democrats have given up trying to impeach President Trump and have finally decided to turn their attention to serious issues such as illegal immigration and continued economic expansion. “As members of Congress, we can now get back to doing our job,” Jerrold Nadler said.

Ha, you knew I was kidding after the first comma. If Democrats can’t use the special counsel report to impeach Trump –- and they really can’t, now that we know it was written not by Mueller at all but by hyper-partisan pit bulls, notably Andrew Weissmann –- they are going to keep looking for something else. They are like the hungry shark that can never stop swimming and scanning the depths for prey. More subpoenas, more fishy investigations.

And now, just before leaving for their August recess, they’ve already announced their newest fishing expedition.

Thursday, in a 23-16 vote along party lines (naturally), the House Oversight and Reform (“Reform”) Committee has authorized Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland to subpoena White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney for all White House records relating to their investigation of “noncareer White House officials’” use of personal email and text applications for official business.

Of course, we know who they mostly mean by “noncareer White House officials”: Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the President’s daughter and son-in-law.

Now, let me get this straight. The Democrats ran a sham “investigation” of Hillary Clinton and even supported her for President of the United States after finding out that she had flagrantly broken the law –- and she absolutely did, no matter what James Comey said –- by using a personal email SERVER, SET UP IN HER OWN HOUSE and serviced by HER OWN TECH GUY, for ALL her official State Department AND personal communications, including the highly classified stuff, at a time when we were supposedly very concerned about hacks from international enemies; had 30,000 subpoenaed emails destroyed and rendered unretrievable with specialized BleachBit software; had aides physically destroy communications devices with hammers; and told repeated monstrous whoppers about it. And now they want to comb through every email ever sent by anyone in the White House to see if they can find one single example of a personal email account being used for something that can be deemed “official.”

“There are serious questions about this White House’s use of personal email and text accounts,” Cummings intoned at the Thursday morning meeting. “We must issue these subpoenas to get our answers.”

The White House has already been deluged with congressional subpoenas for documents. They’ve refused to comply, saying that the Democrats have overstepped their authority and infringed on executive branch privileges. So I’m sure the White House is ready with an answer for them on this especially egregious invasion, and it might include words that I won’t print here.

    Mike. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it all. It's completely mind boggling. All these Dill Weeds blatantly trying to destroy our beautiful and great country only so they can rewrite history in their image. Power and Control is their addiction and they can't focus on anything else other than attempting to destroy our Countries improvements. Because Trump's success equals the end to their socialists utopian dream for now. They don't care who's lives they have destroyed. They only care about their selfish misguided views. They call names and their loyalists uniformly respond like drones, pushing their next talking point and hit job onto our citizens, many truly uniformed. I have watched as they have destabilized our Country's Security and therefore the Security of the Free world. I can't claim to be the highest educated man but having a life devoted to the service of others has given me better insight and understanding of this Countries inhabitants. Should not the constant attempts of blatantly trying to destroy our President from within our government, by members of Congress, be looked upon for what it is, an act of Treason to our Country. The timing for that highly publicized, and from the roots, illegal, hearing of that cowardly, looser, lying attorney during the same time President Trump participated in an important denuclearization Summit with Chairman Kim, was just one shining example of this act to constantly undermining our President and weakening our Countries Security and Stance in the World. I wasn't a fan of Obama, for the most part, but he was my President. I respected him and I hoped he would have made our Country better, but we watched as he destabilized our economy and and also watched as racism from different shades and ethnicities grew. Despite his downfalls it seemed we all hoped it would have appeared he was making our Country a better place for freedom. But with the socialist system also comes the stripping away of our freedoms, especially the freedom to think the way we want and say how we feel out loud without repression. Those who continue to try to destroy our Country need to be removed from office soon and held to accountability for their crimes against our country. Law enforcement needs to remove the cancer that is a threat to all of this worlds citizens that believe freedom is a right to every law abiding citizen. Some of us believe freedom was one of God's greatest gifts our Creator gifted to his children as a right of life and should be cherished and protected always. The People of the United States deserve to be protected from the cancerous threat within our Government, that is now obviously trying tirelessly to destroy our Great Nation that is built under God.

    It is getting more and more ridiculous. How much of the peoples' money do they want (or want not) to spend? And for what worth? It is mind boggling. I think they (Dems) are trying to pull stunts or have lost their marbles (what few they might have had or even some they didn't have....borrowed marbles!!!) There is so much going on in the news and with their press conferences that just sounds beyond the pale. I can usually grasp the meaning of and intent, legality of endeavors with an open mind but with this "stuff" I am baffled. I know they are on a "one track" mindset, but it truly appears they are somewhere between "off the wall" and insane. Eighty one years and I have never seen anything like it, although I am more engaged than ever before. I realy don't think that it is the problem. I think now they want anyone who does not follow their insaneness to feel insane for not understanding/agreeing. It is very difficult to believe we have gotten to this point in our Country and because these ill-willed people have so many outlets for their venues, they can "spout" to their hearts' content. I pray President Trump can remain sane, ignore their attacks, and keep doing all the good he has been doing, even without their cooperation for the most part. We all need to pray for our Country. Too much ill will and undermining going on.

Their primary mission is to get something on Trump and F--- the rest of us, who need laws passed to protect us from. from the raping, murdering illegal element they welcome with open arms. they have money. money to live the life of luxury and pay "BODY GUARDS" to protect them, "ARMED BODY GUARDS" yet they want our guns. hypocrites one and all, shame on you democrapic voters, shame.

    I can't sday what I'd like to about Cummings because someone would call it hate speech yet I look at it as the truth, suffice it to say he is lower than a slugs belly and only half as smart. I have watched a number of video's of him and his pathetic talking over people to run o0ut their time and let those in the hot seat off the hook. I especially loved the ones where Trey Gowdy took him to task an made him look like the fool he is.

    Since the Democrats are touting the tax money recovered as a net gain from the Russia investigation, might I suggest that since documents prove that the DNC was involved in the false documentation in the Steel dossier, we should recover all of the investigative cost from the DNC election funds. That is what the expense was for right! Political contributions exacted from the American People without their consent!!

    Governor: Why can't the GOP-majority senate investigate the Dems like the Dem-majority House keeps doing to the GOP? I seem to recall President Trump suggesting the same thing some time ago. I can't remember his exact words, but didn't the president warn Pelosi that "we" can play that card also?

    I guess we should all be happy that the Dems are determined to doom their 2020 hopes with all this harrassment of President Trump, but it's very frustrating to see our government wasting so much time and money when they were elected to get something done.

    Governor, you’re right on the money! The Democrats will never give up on trying to destroy our President and his family and anyone else that is close to him! They will continue to try to silence us as Christians and Conservatives as well, but God is on our side and we will defeat them! They have awakened all of us and we’re not going to take it anymore! May God continue to Bless you and your family Mike and please continue with everything you’re doing! ????

    Why are the “bad guys” getting away with the things they are rabidly investigating the “good guys” for? This double standard has been and is being so harmful to our country. The elected officials are not doing their jobs (may we show up at the polls and vote them out in the next election), and they are spending valuable time (and money, I’m sure) “tilting at windmills.” My prayers are for ALL leaders of our country to seek God’s face, to return to common sense, and to do the job of running, not RUINING, our country. Thank you for all you do to get the truth to us, Governor!

    Perhaps what needs to be investigated is Elijah Cummings and his wife for fraud. Who is looking into their "charity"? Her "charity" receives funds from people and companies that have interest before her husbands congressional committee. Lots of things need to be investigated about the arrangement the "charity" has with his wife's company. Let's see their emails! Let's look at the "charity" financials. People like him keep the pot stirred against President Trump so the light doesn't shine on their dark dealings. Wish someone would investigate Nadler.

    At risk of repeating myself, it is time to shut down the Nursery School, and see if we can get Congress (opposite of Progress) back in session. Once again, the House has gone into a month-long recess (just like a grade school) without taking care of the peoples business. Our government is once again in the risky position of operating on "Continuing Resolutions". But "our" elected congress people still get their VERY GENEROUS paychecks

Once again, the House has gone into a month-long recess (just like a grade school) without taking care of the peoples business.

Never mind the special counsel; here's the Dems' NEW investigation

Less than 3 minute read

July 26, 2019

Now that the House testimony of vacant-eyed former special counsel Robert Mueller has thoroughly embarrassed the Democrats and cast a huge shadow of doubt over the entire investigation, the Democrats have given up trying to impeach President Trump and have finally decided to turn their attention to serious issues such as illegal immigration and continued economic expansion. “As members of Congress, we can now get back to doing our job,” Jerrold Nadler said.

Ha, you knew I was kidding after the first comma. If Democrats can’t use the special counsel report to impeach Trump –- and they really can’t, now that we know it was written not by Mueller at all but by hyper-partisan pit bulls, notably Andrew Weissmann –- they are going to keep looking for something else. They are like the hungry shark that can never stop swimming and scanning the depths for prey. More subpoenas, more fishy investigations.

And now, just before leaving for their August recess, they’ve already announced their newest fishing expedition.

Thursday, in a 23-16 vote along party lines (naturally), the House Oversight and Reform (“Reform”) Committee has authorized Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland to subpoena White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney for all White House records relating to their investigation of “noncareer White House officials’” use of personal email and text applications for official business.

Of course, we know who they mostly mean by “noncareer White House officials”: Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the President’s daughter and son-in-law.

Now, let me get this straight. The Democrats ran a sham “investigation” of Hillary Clinton and even supported her for President of the United States after finding out that she had flagrantly broken the law –- and she absolutely did, no matter what James Comey said –- by using a personal email SERVER, SET UP IN HER OWN HOUSE and serviced by HER OWN TECH GUY, for ALL her official State Department AND personal communications, including the highly classified stuff, at a time when we were supposedly very concerned about hacks from international enemies; had 30,000 subpoenaed emails destroyed and rendered unretrievable with specialized BleachBit software; had aides physically destroy communications devices with hammers; and told repeated monstrous whoppers about it. And now they want to comb through every email ever sent by anyone in the White House to see if they can find one single example of a personal email account being used for something that can be deemed “official.”

“There are serious questions about this White House’s use of personal email and text accounts,” Cummings intoned at the Thursday morning meeting. “We must issue these subpoenas to get our answers.”

The White House has already been deluged with congressional subpoenas for documents. They’ve refused to comply, saying that the Democrats have overstepped their authority and infringed on executive branch privileges. So I’m sure the White House is ready with an answer for them on this especially egregious invasion, and it might include words that I won’t print here.

    Mike. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it all. It's completely mind boggling. All these Dill Weeds blatantly trying to destroy our beautiful and great country only so they can rewrite history in their image. Power and Control is their addiction and they can't focus on anything else other than attempting to destroy our Countries improvements. Because Trump's success equals the end to their socialists utopian dream for now. They don't care who's lives they have destroyed. They only care about their selfish misguided views. They call names and their loyalists uniformly respond like drones, pushing their next talking point and hit job onto our citizens, many truly uniformed. I have watched as they have destabilized our Country's Security and therefore the Security of the Free world. I can't claim to be the highest educated man but having a life devoted to the service of others has given me better insight and understanding of this Countries inhabitants. Should not the constant attempts of blatantly trying to destroy our President from within our government, by members of Congress, be looked upon for what it is, an act of Treason to our Country. The timing for that highly publicized, and from the roots, illegal, hearing of that cowardly, looser, lying attorney during the same time President Trump participated in an important denuclearization Summit with Chairman Kim, was just one shining example of this act to constantly undermining our President and weakening our Countries Security and Stance in the World. I wasn't a fan of Obama, for the most part, but he was my President. I respected him and I hoped he would have made our Country better, but we watched as he destabilized our economy and and also watched as racism from different shades and ethnicities grew. Despite his downfalls it seemed we all hoped it would have appeared he was making our Country a better place for freedom. But with the socialist system also comes the stripping away of our freedoms, especially the freedom to think the way we want and say how we feel out loud without repression. Those who continue to try to destroy our Country need to be removed from office soon and held to accountability for their crimes against our country. Law enforcement needs to remove the cancer that is a threat to all of this worlds citizens that believe freedom is a right to every law abiding citizen. Some of us believe freedom was one of God's greatest gifts our Creator gifted to his children as a right of life and should be cherished and protected always. The People of the United States deserve to be protected from the cancerous threat within our Government, that is now obviously trying tirelessly to destroy our Great Nation that is built under God.

    GOVERNOR, THE NEXT THING THE DEMOS ARE GOING TO SUBPOENA IS "PILLOW TALK" BETWEEN JARED AND IVANKA. J & I MAY HAVE, COULD HAVE, POSSIBLY HAVE, DISCUSSED GOVERNMENT BUSINESS AND THE DEMOCRATS JUST HAVE TO KNOW THEIR INTIMATE CONVERSATIONS. I AM SO DISGUSTED BY THIS CONTINUAL "WITCHHUNT" BY THE DEMOCRATS. "MY SOAPBOX" FOR TODAY! PS-S

    It is getting more and more ridiculous. How much of the peoples' money do they want (or want not) to spend? And for what worth? It is mind boggling. I think they (Dems) are trying to pull stunts or have lost their marbles (what few they might have had or even some they didn't have....borrowed marbles!!!) There is so much going on in the news and with their press conferences that just sounds beyond the pale. I can usually grasp the meaning of and intent, legality of endeavors with an open mind but with this "stuff" I am baffled. I know they are on a "one track" mindset, but it truly appears they are somewhere between "off the wall" and insane. Eighty one years and I have never seen anything like it, although I am more engaged than ever before. I realy don't think that it is the problem. I think now they want anyone who does not follow their insaneness to feel insane for not understanding/agreeing. It is very difficult to believe we have gotten to this point in our Country and because these ill-willed people have so many outlets for their venues, they can "spout" to their hearts' content. I pray President Trump can remain sane, ignore their attacks, and keep doing all the good he has been doing, even without their cooperation for the most part. We all need to pray for our Country. Too much ill will and undermining going on.

    Mueller investigated Trump's supposed appeal to Russia to help his campaign. Now how about Lindsey G's Senate Comm. investigating how Russia [and the Obama Admin] helped Hillary?

    I would be ashamed to say I was a registard (SIC) democrap with the way the democraps have lost all interest in doing their jobs and helping our country. Their primary mission is to get something on Trump and F--- the rest of us, who need laws passed to protect us from. from the raping, murdering illegal element they welcome with open arms. they have money. money to live the life of luxury and pay "BODY GUARDS" to protect them, "ARMED BODY GUARDS" yet they want our guns. hypocrites one and all, shame on you democrapic voters, shame. I pray to GOD that the republicans take back the congress. In GOD I trust. Bill Sherwood

    I can't sday what I'd like to about Cummings because someone would call it hate speech yet I look at it as the truth, suffice it to say he is lower than a slugs belly and only half as smart. I have watched a number of video's of him and his pathetic talking over people to run o0ut their time and let those in the hot seat off the hook. I especially loved the ones where Trey Gowdy took him to task an made him look like the fool he is.

    Since the Democrats are touting the tax money recovered as a net gain from the Russia investigation, might I suggest that since documents prove that the DNC was involved in the false documentation in the Steel dossier, we should recover all of the investigative cost from the DNC election funds. That is what the expense was for right! Political contributions exacted from the American People without their consent!!

    Governor: Why can't the GOP-majority senate investigate the Dems like the Dem-majority House keeps doing to the GOP? I seem to recall President Trump suggesting the same thing some time ago. I can't remember his exact words, but didn't the president warn Pelosi that "we" can play that card also?

    I guess we should all be happy that the Dems are determined to doom their 2020 hopes with all this harrassment of President Trump, but it's very frustrating to see our government wasting so much time and money when they were elected to get something done.

    Governor, you’re right on the money! The Democrats will never give up on trying to destroy our President and his family and anyone else that is close to him! They will continue to try to silence us as Christians and Conservatives as well, but God is on our side and we will defeat them! They have awakened all of us and we’re not going to take it anymore! May God continue to Bless you and your family Mike and please continue with everything you’re doing! ????

    The democrats have become the party of insanity! They are so hungry for 2020, that they would do just about anything to win the election. In my opinion, they are cutting their own throats, as the American people are becoming very tired of their foolishness. Instead of doing their jobs, they are focused on undermining President trump. I think that they will pay a very heavy price in 2020!

    Why are the “bad guys” getting away with the things they are rabidly investigating the “good guys” for? This double standard has been and is being so harmful to our country. The elected officials are not doing their jobs (may we show up at the polls and vote them out in the next election), and they are spending valuable time (and money, I’m sure) “tilting at windmills.” My prayers are for ALL leaders of our country to seek God’s face, to return to common sense, and to do the job of running, not RUINING, our country. Thank you for all you do to get the truth to us, Governor!

    I do believe the majority of the American people are tired of all these shenanigans and are seriously ready for the Congress to drop them and get on with things that need to be done; they need to start earning those big bucks my tax dollars help pay! How does the average person help get this message across,especially the senior who is physically limited as I am?

    Perhaps what needs to be investigated is Elijah Cummings and his wife for fraud. Who is looking into their "charity"? Her "charity" receives funds from people and companies that have interest before her husbands congressional committee. Lots of things need to be investigated about the arrangement the "charity" has with his wife's company. Let's see their emails! Let's look at the "charity" financials. People like him keep the pot stirred against President Trump so the light doesn't shine on their dark dealings. Wish someone would investigate Nadler.
