The Nunes memo released today outlines how the Obama administration used a Dem-funded dossier to get the FBI to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton’s opponent and shows Dems colluded with foreign governments to obtain the information. The DNC’s response? “Whatever, TRUMP COLLUDED WITH RUSSIA!”
The “Trump/Russia collusion” thing is the biggest example of projection in a long time, but Dems aren’t going to let it go, because they can’t. If what really happened catches on it’ll sink them for good.
Also from the above DNC statement, “no one is above the law” — except apparently some people in the Obama administration and the FBI, as well as Hillary Clinton and some campaign staffers.
Nothing sums up the last couple years in U.S. politics at the national level than Nancy Pelosi then vs. now:
If that doesn’t make your day, nothing will!
If you need any evidence of what hacks run Politifact, they were looking for people to “improve trust and credibility in fact checking,” and one of the people they brought on board to help do so was… Alan Grayson… who was then fired before the ink dried on his employment contract:
PolitiFact announced it hired former politician Alan Grayson to critique its work in an effort to improve trust and credibility on Thursday… but that decision lasted about three seconds.
“It has become clear our choice of Alan Grayson did not meet that threshold to many,” PolitiFact executive director Aaron Sharockman tweeted on Thursday after the initial tweet that he was hired received an onslaught of criticism from respected media members.
Shorter Politifact: “Oh, he’s THAT Alan Grayson?”
Grayson’s probably best known to many for his “fact check” when he was in Congress of saying the GOP’s health care plan was for people to “die quickly” if they get sick.
Now Politifact will have to replace Grayson to help keep them on the path to truth. Harry Reid’s available so maybe that’s their next option.
So The Resistance is really handling the Trump presidency well so far!
One group of San Diegans held a community watch party for President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union Speech that many may consider disrespectful. Those in attendance described it as “cathartic.”
Instead of not applauding, booing or even jeering at something they didn’t like, the audience threw shoes and sandals at the screen.
The Noche de Chanclazos, or night of flip flops, urged attendees to throw their shoes or chanclas at the screen “whenever you feel Trump disses you or your community,” according to the American Friends Service Committee U.S.-Mexico Border Program in San Diego, the event’s organizers.
Well, these people are certainly handling the Trump presidency like mature adults:
These melting snowflakes have got a few more years of “sole”-searching in front of them, if they can survive that long.
Well, it’s come to this:
“Tonight, President Trump said the word ‘America’ more than 80 times in his speech. Yet, after a divisive first year, we hear and feel how exclusionary that ‘America’ is, with policies that have harmed so many vulnerable American communities. The ACLU stands ready to protect these communities, both in the courts and at the polls.
“In particular, the immigration plan put forth by Trump would hold Dreamers hostage to his demands for a harmful border wall and an even larger mass deportation force. We are at this crossroads because of the president’s deeply destructive ideas fomented by his nativist allies and divisive rhetoric. We will continue to stand up for these young immigrants and ensure they continue to contribute to our country. We cannot let America’s Dreamers be deported.”
They sure do seem to miss Obama constantly pointing out how fundamentally flawed and unfair the U.S. is.
