  • Joy Reid claims NRA desires American ‘warlords,’ ‘private armies’ that kill at will

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid told her fans Monday that the National Rifle Association has machinations of building an America where “packs of warlords” can kill at will. The host of “AM Joy” reacted to Sunday’s church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, by claiming NRA members — over 5 million Second Amendment advocates — seek the creation of “private armies” operating outside the rule of law. The comments came one day after 26-year-old Devin Kelley killed 26 churchgoers and wounded another 20 in a rampage reportedly linked to a domestic dispute. “Americans are living like packs of warlords, with heavily armed people...

    In a previous post I raised the possibility that Harry Reid went for the Nuclear Option rule change for judges to guarantee conformation of a hand picked Obama stooge. Theodore D Chuang  obstructed the Congressional investigation into Benghazi before he was selected to become the Federal judge who would get the Uranium One cases in Maryland. Chuang’s task was to settle the Russian Corruption cases quietly so Congress would not become aware of how they were kept out of the known corruption behind the Uranium deal I’ve come across two more pieces of the puzzle. A 1872 Mining Law reform bill which got...

    Parsons says that although 1872 Mining Law reform has passed in the U.S. House it remains stuck in the Senate. “It is literally one person on the U.S. Senate who stops it at every turn, and that’s Harry Reid (D-Nev.), and he does so because he’s beholden to the mining interests because he’s dependent on them for his reelection in Nevada,” Parsons said.
  • Timing suggests Reid complicit in Uranium-Gate cover up.

    In a previous post I made the case that Federal Judge Theodore D. Chiang was a key figure in the cover up of Uranium-Gate from Congress . Before being seated as a judge Theodore D. Chiang obstructed the Congressional investigation into Benghazi demonstrating his criminal loyalty towards Obama. The timing of events in Congress and his nomination suggests that Senator Reid may have been involved in the cover-up. The previous judge occupying the United States District Court for the District of Maryland was Bush Nominee Roger Warren Titus,. His intention to open up his court seat was on or before...

    America’s largest Irish group, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, has slammed black MSNBC host Joy Reid for what they say were her racist comments about Irish Americans. Reid wrote on Twitter: “Kelly grew up in segregated Boston, in an Irish Catholic neighborhood where women were bullied, not honored, and blacks scorned & rejected.” Reid made the comments about the Boston Irish after Boston native and White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly had criticized African American congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson […] Neil Cosgrave, the chairman of the AOH anti-defamation committee, slammed Reid and MSNBC saying, “It is hard to...

    MSNBC's Joy Reid said on Thursday that President Donald Trump can make Republicans "literally accept anything." Appearing as a guest on "All In With Chris Hayes," Reid explained that Trump saw trends in the GOP and took advantage of it. "This is a Republican Party that's been built on resentment and a sense of victimhood, a sense of persecution - almost a persecution complex - for more than 40 years, almost 50 years, going back to the dawn of the civil rights movement when they felt persecuted by the world," Reid said. She said that Trump "gets that" and "gets...

    American Spectator ^ | April 21, 2017 | George Neumayr
    Last October, Harry Reid, the ruthlessly partisan former senator from Nevada, wrote a nasty and bumptious letter to FBI director James Comey. The letter remains a significant piece of evidence in Obamagate, as it confirms his role as conduit for Obama administration’s political espionage against Trump. “In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government,” he wrote. “The public has a right to know this information. I wrote to you months...

    Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he is confident that he has laid the groundwork for Democrats to nuke the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees if they win back the Senate in November. Envisioning Hillary Clinton in the White House and Democrats controlling the Senate, Reid warned that if a Senate Republican minority block her Supreme Court nominee, he is confident the party won't hesitate to change the filibuster rules again. Such a move would be an extension of what Reid did in 2013 when he was still majority leader, eliminating filibusters (with a simple majority vote) on...

    The American Civil Liberties Union announced Saturday evening that a federal court in New York had issued an emergency stay on President Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries. The court’s decision, which will affect people who have been detained in airports, came after the ACLU and other activist groups filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of two Iraqis who were held at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York as a result of the order. “I hope Trump enjoys losing. He’s going to lose so much we’re going to get sick and tired of...

    A convicted felon and key prosecution witness in the criminal case against former Utah Attorney General John Swallow threw out some big names in state and national politics during a court hearing Tuesday. And Swallow’s one-time co-defendant who prosecutors still consider a “co-conspirator,” former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, made an unexpected appearance in the courtroom. Marc Jenson testified at an evidentiary hearing that Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes, R-Draper, and then U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, attended a “secret” meeting involving the Utah Transit Authority in his Southern California office in 2009. Hughes was a legislator but...

    As the new Congress convenes, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) demonstrates that for some reason being a democrat leader in Congress has the unfortunate prerequisite of being an idiot. A volcano of bombast picking up right where Harry Reid left, Schumer spit out his vision of the unending obstructionism he plans forr the GP and Donald Trump. He promised to block any Trump nominee for the Supreme Court. “It’s hard for me to imagine a nominee that Donald Trump would choose that would get Republican support that we could support,” Schumer said in an interview Tuesday night on MSNBC’s “The Rachel...

    Rules: You have to laugh at the Democrats' current plight. They have almost no leverage to block anyone Donald Trump decides to select for judgeships or cabinet posts. They can't stop Republicans from repealing most of ObamaCare. And they only have themselves to blame. On CNN this week, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer was lamenting the fact that Democrats wouldn't be able to use the filibuster to stop Trump's nominees. There should, he said, be "60 votes because on such important positions there should be some degree of bipartisanship." And who, exactly, is to blame for this? Schumer's predecessor in...

    Incoming Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) says he regrets a 2013 decision by Senate Democrats, known as the “nuclear option” to decrease the number of senators needed to confirm Cabinet picks from 60 to 51 votes. “I wish it hadn’t happened,” Schumer said in an interview with CNN, about the move that was triggered by former Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid (D-NV). The move is dubbed the “nuclear option” because by altering the filibuster rules it stands to blow up bipartisan Senate relations. “I argued against it at the time,” Schumer said. “I said both for Supreme Court and...

    Takes one to know one. We’ve spent quite a bit of time talking about the ugly reality facing today’s Democrats. As a political force, they’ve essentially been decimated by the Obama years. Following Hillary Clinton’s implosion, they hold a historically small number of seats at the federal, state, and local levels. They’re facing an absolutely brutal 2018 midterm map, their “bench” is embarrassingly shallow, and (so far) fresh faces are nowhere to be found.
