    With the passing of Congressman Elijah Cummings, I wonder whatever happened to Lois Lerner and how conservative groups like True The Vote were targeted and maligned by the IRS and People like Cummings. Did True The Vote, and other conservative non-profits, ever get the vindication they deserved? And did Lois Lerner have a dime of her ridiculous government pension taken from her following the investigations she unleashed on conservative non-profits? Just wondering.

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, a sharecropper’s son who rose to become the powerful chairman of a U.S. House committee that investigated President Donald Trump, died early Thursday of complications from longstanding health issues, his office said. He was 68.

    During Tuesday’s CNN-New York Times Democratic debate, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg said President Donald Trump withdrawing U.S. troops from Syria has made them “ashamed,” and was taking away their honor. Buttigieg said, “The slaughter going on in Syria is not a consequence of American presence, it a consequence of a withdrawal and a betrayal by this president of American allies and American values. Look, I didn’t think we should have gone to Iraq in the first place. I think we need to get out of Afghanistan. But it’s also the case that a small...

    JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon warned on Tuesday that a recession is on the horizon thanks to the continuing trade tensions with China. “Of course there’s a recession ahead,” Dimon said during a morning call with reporters after the bank announced its third-quarter earnings. “It does look like geopolitics, particularly around China and trade, are reducing business confidence and business capital expenditure,” Dimon added. On Tuesday afternoon, however, JPMorgan Chase spokesman Joe Evangelisti sought to downplay Dimon’s comments, noting that his boss didn’t mention the timing of his prediction.
  • Hunter Biden admits that Trump is 100% correct about Biden's corruption

    Hunter Biden admits that he had no knowledge of and nothing to bring to the boards he served on other than his last name and relationship to the Vice President of the United States who at the time was serving as President Obama's point man on Ukraine and China. He also admits that other board members also had no more knowledge than he had. This means all of these malleable board members were installed for corrupt political purposes only. Ethics, expertise and fiduciary duty be damned. Vice President Biden flew his son around the world on Air Force Two selling...
  • If our NATO partner and ally by treaty Turkey is conducting genocide and war crimes...

    If our NATO partner and ally by treaty Turkey is conducting genocide and war crimes against the Kurds, then perhaps we should call on all our NATO partners and allies to condemn Turkey? We are currently committed by treaty to defend TURKEY, NOT the Kurds. We could tear up the treaties with Turkey and NATO and then enter into a mutual defense treaty with Kurdistan, but then what will Russia and Iran do? Oh, wait, there is no country named Kurdistan. This is the way world wars are started.

    Today is the LA “jungle primary”. The top ballot item is the Governor’s race. Incumbent Edwards (D) can be forced into a runoff election if he can’t get over 50% of the vote total. LA republicans, go vote for Abraham or Rispone if you haven’t early voted already. Even if you are undecided between the two Rs, please vote for one anyway to force a runoff. Thanks so much for POTUS Trump, VP Pence, and DT Jr coming to LA to rally GOP voters. The polls are open from 7AM till 8PM. Election vote counts will start coming in after...

    This will be a weekly post. Count remains at 150 judges confirmed. 105 District Court judges 43 Circuit Court judges 2 Supreme Court justices Upon reconvening after a lengthy summer break, the Senate confirmed 6 judges that should have been confirmed in July. There have been none since. That's right. Only six judges since July! There are currently 16 district judges on the floor waiting for a vote. Enough with the breaks and recesses, Mitch. Get your ass in gear!

    President Trump’s job approval ratings has not been noticeably damaged by the Ukraine Hoax and is still higher than Barack Obama’s. While it’s true that Trump’s approval rating was climbing, and climbed to 45 percent in the Real Clear Politics poll of polls prior to the media and Democrats launching their coordinated impeachment blitzkrieg, as of now it sits at 43.4 percent, not even two points lower. What’s more, Trump disapproval rating has barely increased, from 52 percent to 53.6 percent.
  • GOP never funded US border wall but GOP INSISTS that Trump defend Syria’s borders. What gives?

    I’m so tired of hearing Trump denounced over Syria by GOP establishment lawmakers. When GOP controlled Congress they didn’t give Trump any funding for our own border wall. But somehow defending Syria’s border is a life or death issue for them? Maybe they should resign, move to the Middle East, and run to be leaders of the Kurds or the Syrian rebels. Their priorities aren’t America First, that’s clear enough

    Quest To FInd a Solution To Political Division. I’ve been pondering, praying and grieving about our current political hostility that we the people of this great nation are experiencing. Its emotional impact is unprecedented to say the least. This negative, historically and highly intense separation of political parties has lead me to this one word. “Allegory!” This word compelled me to research its definition. This is what I discovered. Allegory; a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one. My mental allegorical picture was layered with extreme heights of...
  • One of Trump's major policies is to root out corruption and Drain the Swamp - impeachable?

    by Jim Robinson
    One of then major planks in Trump's campaign platform on which he was duly elected was and is to "Drain the Swamp!" That is now his duty and policy and that policy includes rooting out the entrenched corruption, anti-America bad actors, traitors, crooks, liars, slackers and deadwood from all federal departments and agencies, ie, the so-called "DeepState." Despite all the flak thrown up by Obama, Biden, Hillary, Kerry, Clapper, Brennan, Comey, the democrats, the media, the establishment elite, etc, this is what we the people want and demand and expect of good government. Why would the democrats not want this...

    This will be a weekly post. Count remains at 150 judges confirmed. 105 District Court judges 43 Circuit Court judges 2 Supreme Court justices Mitch is dragging his feet again. I gave him a break because he was getting a lot of executive positions confirmed. But since confirming the six nominees on September 11th (the six that SHOULD HAVE been confirmed in JUNE before the recess), there have been no further confirmations. My guess is that the Mitt Romney types are using impeachment to try to slow the conservative judicial juggernaut, with the retiring and anti-Trump senators helping him (Alexander,...

  • The IC IG has no authority to investigate the President

    freerepublic | 10/4/2019 | self (vanity)
    As many have noted: (1) the Ukraine-related "whistleblower" complaint lacks an “urgent concern” as defined in the statute to justify forwarding to Congress and (2) the complaint lacks first-hand knowledge, which the IG IC had specifically required for “credibility” and hence entitlement to whistleblower treatment—until after the appearance of this particular complaint. More fundamentally: The Intelligence Community Inspector General (IC IG) has no authority to receive or investigate complaints about the President.In Title 50 U.S. Code Section 3033 (“Inspector General of the Intelligence Community”), paragraph (g) (“Authorities”) sets out the IC IG’s authority. The authority to “receive and investigate” complaints is...

    Let's go over some basic facts, folks. This is getting so old, it's not even funny. 1) The fact is, Joe Biden was recorded bragging about blackmailing the Ukraine to fire a prosecutor. This prosecutor ostensibly was investigating Biden's son, Hunter. This sounds like it was him covering his son. If that's true, it's a horrific abuse of power. If it's not that he protected his son, it was..... illegal. People try to claim there was no evidence he was covering for his son. That's irrelevant. Period. USOGE Gifts and Payments 2) Trump stated that he would like information on...
