Remember when Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton (and Hillary) claimed Bill & Loretta’s meeting at the Phoenix airport was purely by happenstance? Like everything else the Clintons and their minions say, it looks like that was total BS, not that we didn’t already know that:
Deep in the heart of the more than 500-page report, new testimony generates new questions and provides some answers.
Clinton and Lynch have maintained the meeting was not planned. However, the IG’s report may suggest otherwise. Or at least that not all parties were aware.
On page 203 of the report, “The OPA (Office of Public Affairs) Supervisor said that he later learned that former President Clinton’s Secret Service detail had contacted Lynch’s FBI security detail to let them know that the former President wanted to meet with Lynch.” Lynch’s staff members maintain in the report they had no knowledge of the request and were surprised by the former President’s visit.
You mean Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch lied? NO WAY!
Hey, who wouldn’t go to all that trouble just to meet up on a plane parked on an airport tarmac to only talk about grandkids and golf? And again, nobody was held accountable. It takes some nerve for people to actually claim that James Comey had a thumb on the scale for TRUMP when he was clearly doing all he could to help drag Hillary and her pantsuit across the 2016 finish line.
The media covering the White House has certainly awakened from its several-year slumber since the election and inauguration of Donald Trump, and nobody provides better proof of that than CNN’s Jim Acosta.
Reporters shouting interruptions during Obama events were ostracized by the press and others, but now those are the moments of which Resistance heroes are made. But sometimes, selectively outraged “journalists” like Jim Acosta get shut down, and not just by the president:
"Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people," CNN Journalist Jim Acosta shouted at the end of Trump's speech pic.twitter.com/FqWT5afwUV
What’s even hilariously pitiful is that reporters like Acosta don’t understand that the reason so many people are skeptical of the media isn’t what they’re asking the current administration — but rather what they didn’t ask the previous one. They took an eight year nap, and everybody knows it.
Do you read this as a hilarious slam on Hillary Clinton by Obama while pointing out his own Greek godlike qualities?
Speaking at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser Thursday here in the lush backyard of two party megadonors, Obama warned of a country and world on the brink — “you are right to be concerned,” he told the crowd — but said they’d flub their chance to change that if they kept pining for a magical savior.
“Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving that somehow, ‘OK, I’ll get off my couch after all and go spend the 15-20 minutes it takes for me to vote,’” Obama said in his first public comments in months, which only a few reporters and no cameras were allowed in for. “Because that’s part of what happened in the last election. I heard that too much.”
But wait, it gets better. Obama said that because people were focused on his awesomeness, Democrats forgot to focus on the down ballot races, and that led to Democrats losing seats in historic numbers:
“I’ll be honest with you, if I have a regret during my presidency, it is that people were so focused on me and the battles we were having, particularly after we lost the House, that folks stopped paying attention up and down the ballot,” Obama said.
Confirmed: He’s still as humble as ever! Not to mention as delusional:
This guy urging people to “get off the couch” is like getting a DARE lecture from Charlie Sheen.
This guy urging people to “get off the couch” is like getting a DARE lecture from Charlie Sheen. But I’ve rarely seen so many possible jokes set up with one statement from the notorious wealthy anti-capitalist:
Yep, nobody can motivate you to “get off the couch” like Michael friggin’ Moore! Also, RIP “the line.”
That said, I do think the progressive left should keep taking Moore’s advice, because if anything it’s going to help lead to the GOP holding Congress and probably Trump getting elected to a second term. I’m not sure liberals or their blood pressure cuffs would survive that.
Joy Behar of “The View,” a show that I’d compare to root canal except it would be an unfair slam on my dentist, seems unclear on the concept of elections:
“Many people are reeling” from this announcement, Whoopi began, before playing a clip of President Trump telling supporters at a North Dakota rally last night that he needed to appoint more Republican judges. That sent the table into an uproar.
“Yeah. Let’s have everybody a Republican. The Supreme Court, the Congress, the presidency!” Joy Behar raged. “What is that called? Dictatorship I believe!” she said in disgust.
And what is “The View” called? Idiocracy I believe!
There isn’t even enough brain power in Behar’s statement to power a 2-watt night light for a split second.
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, and Democrats are crapping themselves as President Trump prepares to nominate another justice:
Key Senate Democrats swiftly urged McConnell not to hold a vote on confirmation until after the midterms. They cited the Kentucky Republican’s decision to block then-President Barack Obama’s nominee for the seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death until after the 2016 presidential election. The gambit paid off, as Trump won the presidency and nominated the conservative Gorsuch, who has already had a meaningful effect on the court’s decisions.
“Our Republican colleagues in the Senate should follow the rule they set in 2016 — not to consider a Supreme Court justice in an election year,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Wednesday. “Senator McConnell would tell anyone who listened that the Senate had the right to advise and consent. And that was every bit as important as the president’s right to nominate.”
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, agreed with Schumer. The California Democrat said “there should be no consideration of a Supreme Court nominee until the American people have a chance to weigh in.”
At least two other Judiciary Committee Democrats, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Kamala Harris of California, said they concurred with their party’s leader. The panel holds hearings for judges and decides whether to recommend them to the full Senate. Republicans have an 11-10 edge on the committee and can put judges through along party lines.
Hmm, I don’t remember the Dems sweating so profusely when Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option which still allows judges to be approved via simple majority vote in the Senate. Remember this five years ago?
Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to consider filibuster reform. It had to be done.
When you’re so woke you end up suspending your own business.
Newton’s Third Law is summarized as “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” There’s also a political version of Newton’s Third, and the owner of The Red Hen restaurant who asked Sarah Sanders to leave is finding that out the hard way — and so are her employees who are missing paydays because of their boss’s Resistance soldiering:
The Supreme Court upheld President Trump’s travel ban today in a 5-4 decision. Naturally, the Constitution working exactly as it was designed to do when dealing with these types of matters has progressives sounding the “crisis” alarm:
Haha! So does this mean “Hamilton” is no longer the left’s favorite musical of all time? If Hillary’s loss wasn’t enough to make the progs dislike the play about the brainchild of the Electoral College, this latest constitutional “crisis” news might do it.
And the best part? Nancy Pelosi’s got her lips puckered so tight over this she inadvertently caused a Botox blowout:
In other words, the Constitution is an impediment to leftists’ idea of “progress,” which is exactly what it was designed to do. Nice to know it’s still working, and it’s also nice of lefties to admit it once in a while.
The left’s having a really bad day, and it doesn’t stop at the SCOTUS decision:
U.S. in danger of turning into Turkey, or something.
Hillary Clinton was speaking at Oxford in England this week, and you’ll be shocked — shocked — to know that she’s still complaining about the election. First of all, the Electoral College has got to go, or the U.S. will end up like Turkey, or something:
“Populists can stay in power by mobilizing a fervent base. Now, there are many other lessons like this. Louise mentioned my personal experience with winning three million more votes but still losing,” Clinton said.
“And we will leave discussions of American Electoral College for another day,” Hillary stated, followed by giggles from the crowd.
“But Mounk concludes by saying, ‘Turkey also shows that political and intellectual elites, both inside the country and around the world, persistently underestimate the threat which these kinds of leaders pose to the survival of democratic institutions,’” Clinton continued.
Just imagine what might have been if Hillary had gone to Wisconsin in 2016 as much as she’s traveled overseas to whine about the election!
