Sen. Hirono Walks Out of Cruz’s Senate Judiciary Committee Mtg After Dems Refuse to Condemn Antifa

90 (11)

FoxNews.com reports that

Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when a top Democrat walked out of the room declaring she couldn’t sit through Sen. Ted Cruz’s rhetorical speeches any longer.

The dustup occurred when Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

But Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said Cruz just wasn’t listening during the more than three-hour hearing when Democrats said violence is not acceptable.

“Sometimes I don’t think you listen,” Hirono told Cruz at the Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing as he finished up with a nearly 10-minute speech.  “So, how many times have I had to say that we all should be denouncing violent extremists of every stripe.”

“Does that include Antifa?” said Cruz, who was chairing the hearing.

“I have the time,” Hirono shot back.

“…I hope this is the end of this hearing, Mr. Chairman, and that we don’t have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches,” Hirono concluded.  “Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”

Hirono then packed up to leave the hearing before Cruz adjourned it.

“Well I appreciate the, as always, kind of uplifting words of Senator Hirono,” Cruz said. “And I would also note that throughout her remarks she still did not say a negative word about Antifa nor has any Democrat here.”

He urged her again to denounce the leftist extremist group. “You’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now,” Cruz said to his departing colleague.

Hirono, who had stood up and walked away from the microphone, responded to Cruz with something inaudible before heading out of the room.

“Okay, she declined to speak so that is the position of the Democratic Party,” Cruz said.

It was a tense ending to a hearing that kicked off Tuesday afternoon with Democrats and Republicans disagreeing on what the hearing should even be about.

The hearing Tuesday titled “The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble: Protecting Speech by Stopping Anarchist Violence” revealed deep divisions in how Republicans and Democrats view the sustained protests that have gripped the nation since Floyd’s death while in police custody.

Cruz focused on rioters and anti-government activists that have “hijacked” peaceful protests and unleashed harm and violence in certain cities, like Portland. He kicked off the hearing by playing a video contrasting the protests from Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi and the March for Life with the recent riots, the chaos it has caused, and the Democratic response to it.

“Their actions are profoundly racist,” Cruz said. “The rioters …. destroy minority communities, minority businesses and minority lives across this country. This shouldn’t be complicated: peaceful protests must be protected. Riots must be stopped.”

Meanwhile, Democrats focused on the prevalence of white nationalist extremist groups and the federal government’s sometimes aggressive tactics in places like Portland and Washington, D.C., in dispersing crowds that they view as largely peaceful.

Hirono played her own video at the start of the hearing video of what she says is violence against peaceful protesters and disproportionate force.

Hirono says Tuesday’s hearing should instead be called: “The right of the people peaceably to assemble without being beaten up by unidentifiable federal agents.”

“That would address an actual problem lawful protesters are facing and the rest of us are seeing in this country,” Hirono said.

There is none so blind as he or she who will not see.

What has been described by the Main Stream media as “loosely-connected anarchist groups” have staged coordinated protests in virtually every major city across America.

And yet, the Democrats refuse to condemn them.

Well, Senator Hirono, if you believe that the riots over the last several days all “just happened” to pop up at the same time in every major and some minor cities in America caused by a bunch of bussed-in young punks dressed in all black with black masks on then I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell you.

Antifa follows the teaching of Saul Alinsky and Adolph Hitler, and picks a target, in this case, the perceived “murder” of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Policeman, as an excuse for their “Revolution”, in an attempt to “get what’s coming to them”.

Like Hitler did his followers, the Leaders of these “Revolutionaries”, like Former Weather Underground member “Bomber” Bill Ayers, founder of RefuseFascism.org are promising prosperity to all who follow them.

And, like these type of movements, there seems to be an endless supply of “Useful Idiots”.

Of course, the irony is, they are being funded by “Secret Power Brokers”,  including the Puppet Master himself, George Soros.

The problem that these “Revolutionaries” are facing is the fact that they remain in the minority.

The majority of Americans disagree with them.

Otherwise, Hillary Clinton would have won the Presidency.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and “White Supremacists” are responsible for the riots.

They have no “home training”, either.

These “spoiled brats”, like the Former Imperious President whom they worshipped as a living deity, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to bully and strike fear into average Americans, in order to regain the perceived power which they had under Obama’s failed presidency, while they collected their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party.

These protesters, in their immature, ego-driven rage, do not comprehend our nation’s Constitution, which they firmly believe is an antiquated “Dead ” document, with no more worth than a normal everyday piece of paper.

That Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including the average Americans who live between the coasts and who elected President Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives those protesters that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, or damaging property like the fascist communists of Lenin’s Revolution, whom they are seeking to emulate through their attempts to circumvent the Constitution of the United States of America.

Their actions are far from noble. They are the actions taken by miserable little cowards who simply cannot accept that the majority of Americans do not believe the way that they do.

That is called “INTOLERANCE”.

It is also called FASCISM.

And, evidently the Democrats support them.

Senator Cruz should be commended for showing the nation that the Democrats support a bunch of violent anarchistic punks.

Remember that on November 3rd when you go to vote

“Woke” Lindsey Strikes Again, Tells Judiciary Committee Dems “You’re Not Going to Take My Job Away From Me!”

graham_hearing

I will no longer allow our asylum laws to be exploited by human traffickers, smugglers and cartels. Cartels, smugglers and human traffickers are profiting off immigrants and helping them take advantage of our broken asylum laws. – Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Twitter 8/1/2018

FoxNews.com reports that

The Senate Judiciary Committee erupted with infighting Thursday as a top Republican lawmaker pushed legislation aimed at crafting new rules for asylum-seekers from Central American countries.

The committee eventually approved the bill on a narrow 12-10 vote — but only after Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., battled accusations that he was violating Senate rules by taking up the measure after the panel fell one Democrat shy of a quorum at a related meeting last week.

 “Why even have rules?” Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., asked rhetorically. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., backed her up, saying, “If the majority is willing to break any rule in order to report this bill today, there are no rules.”

Graham defended the move, stating the bill had been ready to move forward for seven weeks and Democrats intentionally did not show up last week in an effort to stymie the legislation.

“I’m not changing the rules,” Graham said, noting that the rules allow a majority of the committee to decide to vote.

Graham said that if he allows the Democrats to get their way, “the committee becomes irrelevant.”

“It would be different if I had not tried. For seven weeks I withheld marking up this bill and I got nowhere,” Graham said angrily. “What you’re telling me is I should ignore what you did to me last week. I will not.”

In an uncomfortable moment, Graham addressed Leahy directly, stating, “Senator Leahy, you’ve been here a long time. I would never have done this to you,” only for Leahy to state that he missed last week’s meeting “because a member of my family was being buried.”

Graham immediately offered condolences but noted that he had been told Democrats would not show up for political reasons.

Graham also alleged that Democrats skipping the meeting were trying to disempower him. “You’re not going to take my job away from me!” he said.

The bill itself calls for asylum claims from the Northern Triangle of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador to be made at refugee centers to be set up in Central America and Mexico.

VAdditionally, the bill calls for 500 new immigration judges so that cases are handled more swiftly, reducing the current backlog of cases.

“I don’t want to separate families, I want to adjudicate families,” Graham said Thursday.

The bill would also allow unaccompanied children from Central America to be sent back to their home country after screening, as is the case with children who enter from Canada and Mexico.

Feinstein said the bill would repeal a requirement for minimum standards at facilities, giving sole authority over the standards to the Department of Homeland Security, without any judicial review. Feinstein mentioned that seven children have died in U.S. custody thus far due to poor conditions.

“The Graham bill doesn’t fix these problems, it will only make them worse,” Feinstein said.

Feinstein also asserted that it would only “increase problems at the border” by allowing children to be detained in poor conditions longer than the current system permits.

This was in reference to a provision in the bill which would also override a court settlement agreement that caps child detention at 20 days, allowing families to be held together for up to 100 days.

Graham has claimed that requiring children – and those accompanying them – to be released after 20 days has allowed for fraud. Graham told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo in July that 30 percent of those who cross into the U.S. with children are “fake families,” and that loopholes are used to let the same children come back over and over, bringing different adults with them.

“I will no longer allow our asylum laws to be exploited by human traffickers, smugglers and cartels,” Graham said in a statement Thursday. “Cartels, smugglers and human traffickers are profiting off immigrants and helping them take advantage of our broken asylum laws. I will no longer allow the loopholes in our laws to be exploited. I will not aid and abet these horrific practices. My bill fixes these problems.”

I agree wholeheartedly with Sen. Graham.

Gentle readers, do you remember when all of these “migrants” began arriving from Central America?

It was the spring and summer of 2014 under the benevolent reign of King Barack The first, when 50,000-100,000 unaccompanied minors made the long arduous journey from Central America across Mexico to our Southern border, where they were graciously welcomed to our Sovereign Nation by President Obama.

Even though a significant number of these “unaccompanied minors” were found to be carrying measles and other childhood diseases which our country had all but eradicated, they were spirited away on military transport planes to bases around the country and were later dispersed among our general population.

This “migration” from the “Northern Triangle” continues to have a very bad smell to it…and I’m not talking about the migrants themselves.

Just as there has been copious amounts of money spent by George Soros and other financial backers of the Far Left Democratic Party to disrupt the candidacy and presidency of Donald J. Trump, I believe that there is an even shadier political element to this “migration”.

The Democrats could care less about the unaccompanied children who are attempting to break into our Sovereign Nation, bringing diseases with them.

They want new Democratic Voters to replace “woke” black Americans and other Democrats who have left the party and support President Trump, like the wonderful Candace Owens.

Just as they did during the Obama Administration and the 2018 Presidential Campaign, the Democrats are greatly underestimating the American People and greatly overestimating their own intelligence.

Average Americans in the Heartland see and know what the Dems are doing.

And, we do not like it one bit.

This is the exact sort of political garbage which led to the election of an American Businessman and Entrepreneur as the 45th President of the United States of America.

If this, indeed, is one of the main things that the Democrats will push as a “crisis” going into the 2020 Presidential Election, their public display of “compassion” will have all of the impact of a wet firecracker.

Sure, the Main Stream Media will play it up, but average Americans quit listening to them years ago.

The only thing that the Democrats support of the “Migrant Caravans” has accomplished is to show Americans whom the Democrats actually care about…and it is sure not average American Citizens

By the way, Sen. Graham  is acting as if a huge weight has been lifted off his shoulders.

He has been a new man, a Conservative Dynamo, since the passing of his mentor, Sen. John McCain.

A “Woke” Lindsey has turned in to a great advocate for average Americans.

And, that’s a good thing.

Until He Comes,

Vichy Republicans on Senate Judiciary Committee Subpoena Trump Jr.

untitled (272).png

FoxNews.com reports that

The Senate Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena for Donald Trump Jr., a source confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday.

The subpoena is in regards to remarks President Trump’s oldest son made while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017, The Associated Press reported, citing a person familiar with the situation.

The committee’s desire to speak to Trump Jr. follows testimony from Michael Cohen, the president’s former attorney, in February.

Cohen told a House committee at the time that he had briefed Trump Jr. approximately 10 times about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017 he was only “peripherally aware” of the proposal.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has been looking into Russian election interference and Trump’s ties to Russia for the last two years.

The move to subpoena Trump Jr. was met with disapproval from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who argued that politicians should redirect their energy away from investigating potential Russian collusion.

“.@DonaldJTrumpJr has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees,” McCarthy tweeted. “Endless investigations—by either party—won’t change the fact that there was NO collusion. It’s time to move on. It’s time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations.”

A source close to Trump Jr. also aired their frustrations about the subpoena to Fox News while slamming Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C. The source spoke about Trump Jr.’s prior testimony, arguing that he has consistently been cooperative.

“Don is a private citizen, who has already been cleared by Mueller after a two-year investigation. He has done 8-9 hours of testimony in front of Senate Intel already and 27 hours of testimony in front of various committees in total,” the source said. “When he originally agreed to testify in front of the Senate Intel Committee in 2017, there was an agreement between Don and the Committee that he would only have to come in and testify a single time as long as he was willing to stay for as long as they’d like, which Don did.”

A comment from Trump Jr. was not immediately available.

It probably would not be repeatable …and wouldn’t blame one bit.

So, why is the Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Richard Burr, subpoenaing him to come back to be grilled some more?

Here’s a clue I found, posted by The New York Times on May 16, 2018…

WASHINGTON — The Republican at the helm of the Senate’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election backed on Wednesday the assessment by American intelligence agencies that Moscow favored Donald J. Trump in the race, contradicting both the president and fellow Republicans in the House.

Senator Richard M. Burr of North Carolina, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement that he saw “no reason to dispute” the intelligence assessment, which was delivered in the final weeks of the Obama administration.

Mr. Burr’s statement, while indirect, offered a clear rebuke to Mr. Trump’s most ardent supporters in the Republican Party and in the right-wing news media, who have sought to cast the assessment as the shoddy work of Obama loyalists bitter over Mr. Trump’s election victory. Russia’s only goal, those supporters have insisted, was to sow chaos, and thus it could not have colluded with a campaign it cared little about.

Can you say “Vichy Republican”, gentle readers? I knew that you could.

So, what about the 45th President of the United States of America has put a burr up Burr’s saddle?

Trump is the first non-politician since our nation’s early days to become the President of the United States of America.

To put it bluntly, those Washington Insiders on both sides of the Political Aisle who are so offended by President Trump are the ones who put him in office.

A bunch of Never-Trumpers who were in in the Republican Party,  such as Paul Ryan, left Congress before the 2018 Midterm Elections. offended that a rank outsider somehow became our 45th President.

While the Vichy Republicans who remain in Washington, DC, like Sen. Richard Burr, continue to be offended by the fact that Donald J. Trump is President, average Americans living between the coasts continue to be offended by “NeverTrumper” Professional Politicians like him.

In fact, the professional politicians on BOTH sides of the political aisle who refuse to accept the findings of the Mueller Report and to let it go, are making those same average Americans ANGRY.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country.

It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, led Americans to choose a Citizen Statesman for their 45th President over a Professional Politician.

It is this anger, which also propelled Donald J. Trump to his victory in the Republican Primary Race…and those who prefer the Washingtonian Status Quo seem to have forgotten that fact.

That is why the Republican Establishment, at least some of them like Sen. Burr, continue to “bite the hand that feeds them”, attacking President Trump on a regular basis.

The funny thing is, for all of their angst and “concern”, if they had not accepted the reality of his Primary Victory, and the fact that Americans were angry, they would have gone down to defeat in 2016 and the company would be suffering under the oppressive rule of President Hillary Clinton.

The Republican Establishment would have never achieved victory by once again trying to push the Jello of “Liberal Moderation” up a hill.

Please reference the failed campaign of Jeb! Bush.

The American people were tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.

Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, was a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He was not a professional politician. He was a businessman who wanted to become a public servant.

And, so far, what he has accomplished as President while being the subject of a 2-year Witch Hunt has demonstrated that he was up to the challenge.

During his actions since taking office, we have seen Trump exemplify leadership ability and a concern for our country that we did not from his predecessor.

Meanwhile, those on the left are still participating in National Temper Tantrum, as if they have the power to overthrow our Constitution and to end Trump’s Presidency for no reason other than they do not like him.

And, the NeverTrumpers in the GOP Elite would gladly help them.

Unfortunately for the Deep State Operatives within our Intelligence Agencies, Special Counsel Mueller DID NOT find any collusion between Trump and the Russians…plus Attorney General William Barr is beginning an investigation into how Mueller’s Witch Hunt got started.

And to those Republicans who would rather stand with the Democrats than stand up for a Republican President, it is time for you to go ahead and get it over with and switch parties, go stand with your Democrat Friends, and then sit down and shut up.

It’s not about what you want anymore.

It is about what us average Americans want.

And, we want to continue MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

Barr Refuses to Allow Congressional Staffers to Grill Him in House Judiciary Committee Meeting…Why He’s Right

1140486606-William-Barr-Testimony

FoxNews.com reports that

The House Judiciary Committee has been informed that Attorney General Bill Barr will not testify at a planned hearing Thursday, an aide to the panel told Fox News — even as the Democrats who lead the committee vowed to hold the hearing anyway, and threatened a possible contempt citation against Barr.

The prospect of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y, gaveling a hearing with an empty chair came hours after Barr endured withering questioning from the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier in the day.

Democratic Caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., said Wednesday afternoon that Democrats “plan on subpoenaing” Barr “if he decides not to show up.”

“He can run but he can’t hide,” Jeffries said.

A key sticking point was that Nadler wants to have House Judiciary Committee staff — rather than members of Congress — question Barr on his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. But DOJ officials said members should conduct the inquiry, and it was unclear why Democrats did not propose having staffers simply provide questions to members during the hearing.

In remarks to reporters Wednesday afternoon, Nadler said Democrats had “worked around the clock” to address Barr’s concerns, and slammed what he called Barr’s “lack of candor.”

“He’s trying to blackmail the committee into not following the most effective means of eliciting the information we need,” Nadler said. “He is terrified of having to face a skilled attorney.”

Nadler also said the DOJ had denied House Democrats’ request for the full and unredacted Mueller report, and said compliance with congressional subpoenas is “not optional.”

Although Barr has not yet been subpoenaed to testify, Nadler said contempt citations could be possible down the road not only if the full Mueller report is not released, but also if Barr does not comply with a possible future subpoena. The move would not be unprecedented: Republicans in the House held Obama Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt in 2012, after he refused to provide information on the failed gun-running sting known as “Fast and Furious.”

Republicans insisted Democrats had deliberately derailed the hearing.

“It’s a shame Members of the House Judiciary Committee won’t get the opportunity to hear from Attorney General Barr this Thursday, because Chairman Nadler chose to torpedo our hearing,” House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins, R-Ga., said in a statement. “The attorney general gave clear, informative testimony in the Senate Wednesday, as he offered to do more than a month ago in the House tomorrow.”

Collins added: “By rejecting the chance to question Attorney General Barr or read the materials he’s provided, Democrats are trying to prolong an investigation the special counsel completed. Ultimately, though, they’re ignoring the will of the majority of Americans who want Congress to move on and secure our border and continue to strengthen our economy.”

“We’re not torpedoeing this hearing,” Nadler countered, responding to Collins’ remarks. He added that Barr has a “nerve” to challenge the panel’s ability to conduct its own hearing.

Speaking to Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham focused on the larger context.

“Well, to all my friends on the other side: We gave Mueller two years to do his job,” Graham said. “He had 19 lawyers. He had $25 million, he interviewed 500 people, he issued 2,000 subpoenas. He had plenty of opportunity without interference. The president gave him a million and a half documents. Everybody around the president and on the president’s campaign testified voluntarily, and here’s what we know: There was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians at all. Mueller could not decide — chose not to press forward on obstruction. I always thought the obstruction argument was absurd. It is over, and the reason they are mad at Barr and me is because they didn’t get the outcome they want. My friends on the other side want an outcome, and they don’t care how they get it.”

Graham added: “To give Mueller the space to do his job is not enough. When Mueller gives an answer they don’t like, they destroy Bill Barr. Bill Barr’s a fine man, he will sleep well tonight. His critics are the problem, not him. “

DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec, meanwhile, called Nadler’s demands “inappropriate” and said Barr remains open to speaking to members directly.

So, why does Rep. Nadler have such a burr in his saddle about President Trump?

Well, there are a couple of reasons.

According to Breitbart.com in an article posted on April 9th,

“Congressman Jerry Nadler fought me for years on a very large development I built on the West Side of Manhattan,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He wanted a Rail Yard built underneath the development or even better, to stop the job. He didn’t get either & the development became VERY successful. Nevertheless, I got along very well with Jerry during the zoning and building process.”

The battle between Trump and Nadler took place in the 1980s over a development project on Manhattan’s West Side, according to the Washington Post‘s Josh Dawsey.

Trump acknowledged that his relationship with Nadler changed significantly when be became president, but signaled optimism that their relationship could be a positive one.

“Then I changed course (slightly), became President, and now I am dealing with Congressman Nadler again,” Trump wrote. “Some things never end, but hopefully it will all go well for everyone. Only time will tell!”

But Nadler has demonstrated he has little interest in working with the president.

In 2018, the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway overheard Nadler promising to go “all-in” to investigate Trump and his connections with Russia after Democrats won a House majority in the midterm elections.

The second reason is one shared by every Democrat Politician in Washington, D.C.

They want to demean and destroy President Trump, his Administration, including AG Barr, his staff, his friends, and his entire family.

Why?

Because he defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election and he is succeeding in keeping his Campaign Promises, including bringing back America’s Economy, ruining the Democrats’ chances of turning America into a Marxist Nation.

And, now that the Mueller Report has turned out to be a bunch of “sound and fury, signifying nothing” the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have been shown to be nothing but a bunch of bald-faced liars.

Make no mistake, the Democrat Hierarchy including the Democrats on Capitol Hill are very aware that Attorney General Barr is an experienced veteran in his position. He is a very through and extremely competent lawyer and when he says that he is going to get to the bottom of the origins of the Russia Collusion Fairy Tale, you can take it to the bank.

Barr has really got ol’ Jerry’s knickers in a twist…not just his , but the entire Democrat Hierarchy, including Obama Hillary, Comey, and the other members of the Deep State Cabal who tried to take down candidate and then President Donald J. Trump.

Nadler and the House Dems voting to allow their staff to question the top Law Enforcement Officer in America, was an insult perpetrated in the name of pettiness and mean-spirited arrogance designed to insult AG Barr and President Trump.

That vote had nothing to do with “justice”. Injustice, yes. Justice, no.

However, there was another reason that Nadler and the Dems wanted their staff lawyers to ask the questions: they saw how bad Attorney General Barr made the Democrat Senators look in their committee meeting yesterday.

Believe you me, Nadler and the rest of the House Dems on his committee wanted no part of that.

However, their plan didn’t work.

By refusing to fall for it, AG Barr made them look stupid, anyway.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

Soros Connected With the “Abused Women” on the Elevator With Jeff Flake

160729-jeff-flake-ap-1160

Benedict Arnold (1741-1801) was an early American hero of the Revolutionary War (1775-83) who later became one of the most infamous traitors in U.S. history after he switched sides and fought for the British. At the outbreak of the war, Arnold participated in the capture of the British garrison of Fort Ticonderoga in 1775. In 1776, he hindered a British invasion of New York at the Battle of Lake Champlain. The following year, he played a crucial role in bringing about the surrender of British General John Burgoyne’s (1722-92) army at Saratoga. Yet Arnold never received the recognition he thought he deserved. In 1779, he entered into secret negotiations with the British, agreeing to turn over the U.S. post at West Point in return for money and a command in the British army. The plot was discovered, but Arnold escaped to British lines. His name has since become synonymous with the word “traitor.”

So will this guy’s.

FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. Jeff Flake was confronted by two female protesters in a Capitol Hill elevator on Friday after he announced that he’d support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Flake (R-Ariz.) had been undecided before announcing his support for the nominee.

The two protesters, both explaining they were victims of sexual assaults, began shouting at Flake because of his expected vote for Kavanaugh.

“Look at me when I’m talking to you!” she yelled. “You’re telling me that my assault doesn’t matter, that what happened to me doesn’t matter!”

Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday over Ford’s sexual assault accusations toward the nominee.

“You’re going to let people who do these things into power. That’s what you’re telling me when you vote for him,” the protester told Flake on Friday.

Flake later voted for Kavanaugh’s nomination to go to the full Senate floor later.

However, he called for a week-long FBI investigation into Ford’s allegations before he would support the nominee.

The confrontation went viral, with the woman later being identified in reports as Maria Gallagher, 23, who showed up the Senate office building to protest Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The other woman, Ana Maria Archila, said she had spoken previously to Flake this week and told him of her sexual assault, emphasizing that Dr. Ford is telling the truth.

“This is not tolerable!” she told him, explaining that a man who sexually assaulted a woman cannot be allowed to sit on the Supreme Court.

Ana Maria Archila, one of the women who confronted Jeff Flake on the elevator at the Capitol after he said he was voting for Brett Kavanaugh, is the co-executive director for the Center for Popular Democracy and the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund.

The Center For Popular Democracy is heavily funded by George Soros. The organization also identified Maria Gallagher to the press as the other woman confronting Flake.

According to the organization, it is a “high-impact national organization that builds organizing power to transform the local and state policy landscape through deep, long-term partnerships with leading community-based organizing groups nationwide.”

Archila joined the group in September 2013.

A profile on Archila says that she emigrated to the U.S. from Bogota, Colombia, when she was 17 years old. An outdated LinkedIn page says that Archila was formerly the co-executive director of a similar advocacy group, Make the Road New York in Brooklyn.

Archila lives in the Astoria neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Maria Gallagher is from Westchester, New York. She never told anyone about her abuse before getting in the face of Sen. Flake. She majored in psychology at Northeastern, where she was a member of a society named ” Strong Women. Strong Girls. Acting out.” (courtesy of Heavy.com)

Gee. I wonder what sort of “society” that was?

Surely, they weren’t a bunch of Feminist Political Activists, were they?

Of course they were. And, don’t call them “Shirley”.

And, what a coinky-dink for the two of them to be from New York and to happen to be in the elevator with a supposedly protected U.S. Congressman, huh?

It has also been reported that the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee met with Flake.

I wonder if Senator Sheila Jackson Lee handed him an envelope like she did Professor Ford’s Lawyer?

Is it just me, gentle readers, or do you also believe that Soros’ money is spread all over this political circus?

I have been following politics, both local and national, since college.

The political chicanery that the legendary Ford Family (Harold, John, Edmond, and Harold Jr.) pulled in Memphis was child’s play compared to what the Modern Democratic Party has degenerated into.

I’m waiting for these crooks to start bashing someone’s head in, a la Al Capone (Robert DeNiro) in “The Untouchables”.

Former Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry has been practicing enough sedition on his own with his unsanctioned meetings with Iran, without Sen. Flake’s help in undermining a sitting President.

Flake’s sedition is even worse than Kerry’s.

He’s a member of the President’s Political Party.

And, he should be ashamed of himself

But, he’s not.

He’s leaving Congress, so just consider this as training.

…For his future job as a “Former Republican” Political Analyst…with CNN.

Lynch Begins Testimony…Says Illegals Have The “Right To Work Here”

Loretta LynchWell, Eric Holder’s replacement began her testimony yesterday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. And, all I’ve got to say, is that it looks like we are in for another Eric Holder…in a skirt.

My Way News has the story…

Challenged by Republicans, Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch on Wednesday defended President Barack Obama’s decision to shelter millions of immigrants from deportation though they live in the country illegally.

She said that under the administration’s policy, the Department of Homeland Security is focusing its efforts on the removal of “the most dangerous of the undocumented immigrants among us.”

“It seems to be a reasonable way to marshal limited resources to deal with the problem” of illegal immigration, she said.

Lynch made her remarks in the opening moments of a hearing into her appointment as the nation’s first black female attorney general. It is the first confirmation proceeding since Republicans took control of the Senate this month.

Settling into the witness chair for what promised to be a long day of questioning, Lynch promised a fresh relationship with law enforcement and with Congress.

“I pledge to all of you and to the American people that I will fulfill my responsibilities with integrity and independence,” she said in remarks prepared for the panel led by Republicans who say Attorney General Eric Holder has been too willing to follow President Barack Obama’s political agenda.

Sen. Charles Grassley, the Iowa Republican and committee chairman, said as much in the opening moments of the hearing. He said the department is “deeply politicized. But that’s what happens when the attorney general of the United States views himself, in his own words, as the president’s ‘wingman.'”

Grassley did not press further after Lynch offered her defense of Obama’s immigration policies, even though he said they amount to rewriting the law rather than enforcing it.

In testimony delivered before she was questioned, Lynch said that if confirmed she would focus on combatting terrorism and cybercrime and would protect the vulnerable from criminal predators.

And she was at pains to promise what Republican critics demanded in advance.

“I look forward to fostering a new and improved relationship with this committee, the United States Senate and the entire United States Congress, a relationship based on mutual respect and constitutional balance,” she said.

Also, during the hearing, according to Breitbart.com

President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General of the United States, Loretta Lynch, said on Wednesday during a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing that she thinks illegal aliens have the same right to work in America as American citizens do.

“Senator, I believe the right and the obligation to work is one that is shared by everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here,” Lynch said when asked by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) who has a greater right to work: Illegal aliens, or lawful immigrants and American citizens?

“Certainly, if someone is here—regardless of status—I would prefer that they be participating in the workplace than not participating in the workplace,” Lynch said.

She also said she doesn’t believe that Obama’s executive action on immigration is an “amnesty.”

Those who are here in America ILLEGALLY have NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, Ms. Lynch.

What part of the word “illegal”, don’t you understand?

Last year, punditpress.com reported the following about Ms. Lynch:

In a speech given at Long Beach earlier this year, President Obama’s new nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, specifically called out voter ID laws as racist and schools as disproportionately using zero tolerance policies against minorities. The video was uncovered by Pundit Press.

The remarks came at the end of a long speech, explaining the examples that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela set for people.

Ms. Lynch then began talking about the inequities that she sees in the United States.

“There’s still more work to do,” Ms. Lynch explained. “People tell us the Dream is not realized because dreams never are. Mandela and King knew we had to continue working, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you, that under this President and under this Attorney General, that the Department of Justice is committed to following through with those dreams.”

She continued, “50 years after the march on Washington, 50 years after the civil rights movement, we stand in this country at a time when we see people trying to take back so much of what Dr. King fought for. We stand in this country. People try and take over the State House and reverse the goals that have been made in voting in this country.

“But I’m proud to tell you that the Department of Justice has looked at these laws and looked at what’s happening in the Deep South, and in my home state of North Carolina has brought lawsuits against those voting rights changes that seek to limit out ability to stand up and exercise our rights as citizens. And those lawsuits will continue.”

Ms. Lynch was no doubt talking about the Justice Department’s lawsuit against North Carolina to stop their voter ID laws. Eric Holder even used the same kind of language as Lynch: “Allowing limits on voting rights that disproportionately exclude minority voters would be inconsistent with our ideals as a nation,” he explained.

It is plain to see that Ms. Lynch is arguing that people in the “Deep South” have passed these laws so that minority voters would be disenfranchised.

“Disenfranchised”? How in the name of Dow Jones and all his little averages is having to prove that you’re not a dead guy at the Voting Booth, by presenting the same ID that you have to show in order to purchase a pack of cigarettes, being “disenfranchised”?

Gimme a break.

Additionally, it has been revealed about the prospective attorney general, that she is a Pro-Gun Control and that she was the sorority sister of Present Attorney General Eric Holder’s wife.

In other words, Obama’s Socialist Circus continues its sideshow, unabated.

For all of her protestations about being her own person, Prospective Attorney General Lynch will be simply another drone bee in the Liberal Hive Hind, which is the Obama Administration.

If she is confirmed, which, given the spineless nature of the Establishment Republicans, she probably will be, be prepared for two more years of the biased injustices brought about by Eric Holder, at the quest of President Barack Hussein Obama.

And, the payback, which Valerie Jarrett spoke about in 2012, continues.

Until He Comes,
