For Democrats who are screaming about President Trump criticizing the overly harsh sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone, and demanding investigations and Attorney General Barr’s resignation (even though there's no evidence he even discussed this with Trump), Matt Margolis at PJ Media reminds us of “five times Obama protected his allies from justice, and Democrats didn’t care.”
What if Adam Schiff held a publicity-grubbing media event and nobody came? I know, that’s too much to hope for. But at least Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee that he allegedly chairs have had enough of Schiff’s partisan antics and dereliction of his real duties, and they are refusing to go along with it any more.
Wednesday, Schiff scheduled a hearing on new technologies and national security that was largely a PR event, and all the Republicans on the Committee boycotted it. In a letter to Schiff on behalf of his Republican colleagues, ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes accused Schiff of refusing to address the real responsibility of the Intelligence Committee: overseeing federal intelligence agencies. Nunes noted that months have gone by with hardly any hearings or briefings on oversight (but plenty of time for kangaroo court “impeachment” drama.) He pointed out that IG Horowitz’s report detailed 17 examples of shocking failings, including falsifying FISA court warrant applications to spy on American citizens. Yet Schiff’s committee has done nothing, other than hoping to bury it until the public forgets about it.
Well, I’m not going to forget about it, nor will many other conservatives in the media. We will continue beating on that drum until we finally see some real justice served and the people who blatantly abused their power held to account. I’m perfectly willing to keep writing about it for the next nine months until the November elections. At that time, let us hope, voters will insure that the Intelligence Committee is taken away from the self-aggrandizing partisan liar Schiff and put back under the chairmanship of Nunes, who has been right in sounding the alarm about intelligence agency political corruption from the very beginning.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that liberal groups and New York attorneys are rushing to Detroit to help the city fight a lawsuit that seeks to force Detroit to clean up its voter roll irregularities.
A recent study found that Detroit has 479,267 individuals eligible to vote and 511,786 registered voters. Those include about 500 duplicate registrations and 2500 dead people. The leftist groups are fighting the effort to purge dead, fake and ineligible voter registrations. As the article notes:
“Democrats have built a massive network of nonprofit groups, funded by George Soros and other liberal donors, to oppose Republican-backed voting initiatives such as voter identification laws. Michigan is a significant target for such efforts given its 'swing state' status; Trump won the state by just 10,000 votes in the 2016 election.”
Far be it from me to deny dead people representation, but I get tired of hearing the claim that every attempt to stop voter fraud or clean up registration rolls is an attempt to “disenfranchise” Democratic voters. The reason this so angers me is because, in fact, every fraudulent vote cast is a real case of disenfranchising a voter.
The right to vote is one of our most fundamental rights. Whenever anyone who has no legal right to vote does so anyway (or a vote is cast in someone else’s name, or someone votes more than once), that vote cancels out a legitimate vote. Some American citizen was deprived of their sacred right to have a say in their own government.
I will start believing the people fighting attempts to clean up voter rolls really care about disenfranchising voters when I see them express equal outrage over citizens’ legitimate votes being rendered nil by fraudulent ballots.
Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar just kicked another hornet’s nest by promoting the idea of extending G.I. Bill benefits to everyone. She retweeted an article that declared, “Imagine what it would do for our country and those who live here if we were to take the ethos behind the original GI Bill and apply it to everybody — canceling all student debt and making public colleges, universities, and vocational schools tuition-free.”
Setting aside the staggering cost, reaction from veterans was swift and fierce. Click the link to read how they schooled her on the fact that G.I. Bill benefits aren’t "free." They’re paid for by putting in years of military service that often involves putting your life on the line.
I told you yesterday about the new indictments of actor Jussie Smollett for allegedly lying to the police in reporting a fake hate crime, after a special prosecutor investigated for six months and could find no legitimate reason for Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx to have dropped the 19 charges against him.
Well, Foxx is facing a primary next month, and can you guess who she claims is responsible for her reelection difficulties? That’s right: Donald Trump! Is there nothing he can’t do?
You see, Foxx’s name is mud in Chicago because Trump “politicized the justice system,” apparently by complaining when he discovered a cabal of rabid political partisans was falsifying evidence to get warrants to spy on his campaign. What Trump had to do with Smollett risking race riots by allegedly slandering Trump supporters; or with her decision to drop the most infamous case in Chicago, claiming that someone who wasn’t a famous actor with connections to the Obamas would’ve gotten the same treatment; or with the appointment of a special prosecutor who found the opposite…I cannot say. But trust her on this, it's Trump's fault. After all, would she lie to you?
There seems to be widespread agreement in liberal circles that 18-year-olds are too immature to be trusted with anything dangerous. They want 21 to be the legal age to smoke cigarettes, vape, drunk alcohol or buy a gun.
Yet they will fight to the death to make sure children 16 and younger can decide for themselves whether to have doctors shoot them full of puberty-blocking drugs with unknown potential side-effects on their bodies, if they believe they’re transgender. We can’t test cosmetics on animals, but we can use our children as guinea pigs for testing unproven puberty blocking chemicals.
In South Dakota, there was an attempt to change the law to stop what would, in previous years, have been immediately recognized as dangerous quackery and child abuse. And despite the fact that the South Dakota government is entirely run by Republicans, with staggering majorities in both Houses, the attempt failed when the House passed it but the Senate did not.
And here’s an article from last week, before the bill was defeated, that includes more background about how giving dangerous chemicals to children has become a trendy political crusade, and what it can do to their bodies. Also, what the advocates for this don’t want you to know. Like how Jazz Jennings has been touted as the public face of a healthy transgender child for years, but we’re only now learning that she suffered severe complications and went through four painful surgeries because years of hormone blockers while still growing caused her sexual organs to develop in ways that the surgeons weren’t sure how to deal with.
