    "The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life," Representative Maxine Waters told Roland Martin on Monday.   "That's going to be very, very powerful," Waters said. "That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it's never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They're going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can't get around it. And he's [President Obama] been very smart....
  • Deep State Maskirovka and Democrat Hysteria

    Maskirovka is the Russian use of deception to confuse, mislead and camouflage oneself from the enemy, and is employed at all levels from tactical operations in war to global, strategic developments. Once upon a time senior members of the US government created a Russian fairy tale. It is nothing more than a total fabrication, a spider’s web of lies that continues to occupy the news cycle, waste tax payer dollars and threaten the Presidency of Donald, J. Trump. In fact, it may very well be labeled the greatest story ever told – that President Trump, members of his cabinet and...

    Out of everyone currently in Congress, I think it's safe to say that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is having the hardest time coming to grips with Donald Trump's presidency. She skipped the inauguration, passed on Trump's address to Congress, called the Trump White House a bunch of "scumbags," and has been daydreaming over Trump's impeachment since before he was even inaugurated.Now, she's back at it again, tweeting on Tuesday morning that Trump had better "Get ready for impeachment."

    Socialist Democrat Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) has become the poster child for liberal stupidity in her continued crusade to impeach Donald Trump without a shred of evidence, except her feelings.  While many have called Trump and his supporters Nazis, which were National Socialists, let me remind you that Waters is the one that has claimed to be a Socialist and said she would love to "take over" all oil companies. A slip of the tongue revealed the true intentions of Maxine Waters during a house hearing in 2008 grilling oil executives including John Hofmeister, President of Shell Oil Company. Waters referred...

    Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is making a strong case to become the poster child for Trump Derangement Syndrome. Long an exploiter of loony left memes, such as the contention that the CIA deliberately spread a crack epidemic in America's inner cities, Waters loves the attention and praise she garners from voicing the radical thoughts other crazy lefties shy away from. She owes her national profile to her readiness to glorify the 1992 Rodney King rioters in Los Angeles as participating in a "rebellion," not a "riot," justifying the looting of many Korean-owned stores as "mothers who took this as an...

Maxine Waters: “As we understand it, the protocol has been that U.S. attorneys hand in their resignations and would give the new administration an opportunity to make new appointments, we don’t see that happening quite fast enough.” The fake news media has been wringing their hands over Sessions’ request for Obama-era attorneys to resign as if it’s something that has never been done before.

    It was September 2013. Obamacare was coming in full force. The law was written in such a way that if the program failed, it would not jeopardize ObamaÂ’s re-election bid. Democrats sponsored town halls to prepare constituents for the health insurance exchanges in their states, or on the federal exchange if that state had opted out. Covered California was advertised as the gold standard for state exchanges. Congresswoman Maxine Waters stepped up as one of its most vocal promoters.

Maxine Waters doubled down on her earlier statement that “my greatest desire is to lead [President Trump] right into impeachment.” Asked by Reid on what grounds she would impeach the president, Waters offered no evidence but said “I believe” there’s a connection between Ukraine, Trump, and Russia, and “I think” Trump “colluded” with Putin during the election. Concluded Waters: “I think that it’s there, we just have to dig deeper, do the investigation and find it.” View the video here.

    The last time Congressional Democrats peaceably accepted a GOP victory in the Electoral College was 1988. In 2000, 2004 and 2016, Democrats in Congress objected, tried to object, and generally disrupted the process of certifying the Electoral College vote. They did so with no substantive grounds, instead just for the political theater of it. Today's certification of the Electoral College wasn't just a ceremony, but it also wasn't a debate over who should be president. The question before the chamber was whether the votes being presented were valid votes from valid electors. No Democrats made any case that the electors...

    The fight over the “cromnibus” began as an internecine battle within the Republican Party — which is nothing new for the GOP on Capitol Hill when it comes to budgets. Over the past few hours, though, it’s turned into a civil war among Democrats, especially between progressives in Congress and the White House. Barack Obama spent the afternoon on the phone attempting to whip enough House Democrats to vote for the bill, while Nancy Pelosi declared herself opposed to the bill and whipped her caucus to stand firm. As noted in an update in the earlier post, Obama sent his...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Southland civil rights leaders Monday called for an investigation into what they described as a racially offensive campaign against local Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Posters featuring a black-and-white illustration of Waters bordered with the words “Poverty Pimp” have been plastered on streets and near freeways and businesses throughout Los Angeles, Inglewood and the South Bay. KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta reports the ad portrays a wrinkled caricature of Waters depicted with red dollar signs in her eyes and the words “N—-s Betta Have My Money!” behind her. The ads were captured in images posted online in front of...

    So I learn from my students that the new descriptive term for showing someone up is “flexing”—I suppose a reference perhaps to what body builders do in a gym? Not sure, and I’ll make a point of asking for a more complete explanation and proper usage guide in class next week. But even before then, it appears someone is flexin’ ol’ Maxine Waters, the openly socialist Democratic Congresswoman from south central Los Angeles. Whoever is behind these, I approve:

    I confess I've been called a bigot for lots of things simply because I have a Christian worldview. I've been called it by atheists, homosexuals and Islamists, but they always use that because they simply cannot defend their positions, and so, they resort to name calling. It shouldn't surprise anyone then that socialist Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) spoke at an Islamic Society of Orange County town hall meeting on the issue of the Constitution and Sharia law. Keep in mind that this town hall meeting took place in 2012, but her words are still relevant today because she and others...
  • DOJ Pardon Atty. Quits as Obama Plans to Free Thousands of Drug Convicts

    Judicial Watch ^ | Aprilt 24, 2014
    As President Obama prepares to use his executive power to release thousands of felons (serving time under “racist” drug sentences) the Justice Department’s top official in charge of pardons quits rather than let criminals out of jail. At least someone at the agency charged with enforcing the law and providing federal leadership in controlling crime, has some scruples. Of course, the official statement on the abrupt resignation of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Pardon Attorney, Ron Rodgers, is that he suddenly requested reassignment after heading the division for six years. One newswire story quotes a DOJ Deputy Attorney General saying...

    We went to school the other day to pump kids and their parents to apply for those readily available student loans for college: Michelle Obama told a group of high school students and parents on Wednesday not to let financial concerns stand in the way of a college education as she urged them to apply for federal student aid.“Unfortunately, too many students don’t even bother to apply to college because they don’t think they’ll ever be able to afford it,” she added. “So they just walk away from the opportunity without getting any advice or seeking any support.” Lady M’s...

    Inflation has been tame in the U.S. during the Obama administration, at least in regards to things the government is worried about, like wages. If one looks at the official CPI measurements, inflation isn’t a problem. Deflation however could be, according to the Fed’s Politburo of Governors. Falling prices, which presumably would give the rest of us relief at the checkout counter, if it wouldn’t do anything to add to our paycheck, is the biggest danger to the safety of our Republic, say central bankers. “The Consumer Price Index… decreased 0.1 percent in October on a seasonally adjusted basis,...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters urged change at the "Redeem the Dream Summit." The Democratic congresswoman spoke at the event hosted by the National Urban League marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. She says there's still more work to do, and she's ready to roll up her sleeves. "And we must be committed to bring about change," Waters said. "What drove more that 250,000 Americans to the Lincoln Memorial 50 years ago was because they had the courage of their convictions, and they had the sense of their power to bring about change. They created the...
