Beto Wants to Skip Impeachment, Have Trump Remove Himself from Office

Good luck with that, Beto.

Published

on

With the 2020 election just around the corner, the democratic candidates vying for the presidency are attempting to make the most of the latest kerfuffle surrounding the White House.

This most recent push to have President Trump impeached was predictable – almost expected.  The left has been at the precipice of this disastrous maneuver for months, if not years, and many Americans believed that it was only a matter of time before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was badgered into making it official.

But still there are some progressives out in the ether who aren’t satisfied, and likely won’t be until Donald Trump is a distant memory.

Count 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke among those who don’t believe that impeachment is enough.

Trending: House Republicans Sue Pelosi For Defying ‘231-Year Constitutional Tradition’ With Proxy Voting

Thursday on CNN’s “OutFront,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) called on President Donald Trump to resign from the White House over the “whistleblower” complaint regarding Trump’s communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

O’Rourke  said, “President Nixon did the right thing and resigned before it moved to a trial in the Senate. I’m calling upon those who are close to President Trump right now, the same ones who tried to hide the transcript or the notes from this phone call, who right now are complicit in what the president is doing, to advise him to do the right thing and to resign from this office.”

This sort of rhetoric isn’t surprising from O’Rourke.

The long-shot 2020 contender has continually reinvented himself on the campaign trail as his polling numbers fail to garner much attention at all.  This has forced the El Paso native to constantly amplify his anti-Trump vitriol in an attempt to remain even remotely relevant to the race.

Lindsey Graham Announces First Witness in RussiaGate Origins Probe…and It’s a Doozy

The truth may be just over the horizon, and that does not bode well for the Democrats’ chances of taking back the White House in 2020. 

Published

on

Now that the RussiaGate hoax has now been officially swallowed by the ObamaGate scandal, it’s the GOP’s turn to work the case and uncover just how deep the Democratic debauchery goes.

As it stands today, many on the right side of the aisle are of the belief that the outgoing Obama administration was responsible for concocting a plan to delegitimize the election of Donald Trump by linking him to The Kremlin, and attempting to portray the Big Apple businessman as a stooge to Vladimir Putin.  They used every trick in the book as well, including salacious and unverifiable rumors being passed off as “counterintelligence dossiers”.

Of course, now that the Republicans have a hold of the Senate, they are looking to get to the bottom of this mess, and they certainly aren’t wasting any time beating around the bush.

Former acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be the first witness to testify in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., announced Wednesday that Rosenstein is scheduled to testify before the committee on June 3 at 10:00 a.m.

The hearing, according to the committee, will be titled “Oversight of the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation: Day 1.”

Why Rosenstein?

“Crossfire Hurricane” is the FBI’s internal code name for the bureau’s original investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign were colluding with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. That investigation was launched by the FBI in July 2016. Former special counsel Robert Mueller’s team eventually announced that it found no evidence of coordination.

“Mr. Rosenstein will testify about the new revelations contained in the Horowitz report concerning the FISA warrant applications and other matters,” Graham said in a statement Wednesday. “This will be the first in a series of oversight hearings regarding all things Crossfire Hurricane and the Mueller investigation.”

The truth may be just over the horizon, and that does not bode well for the Democrats’ chances of taking back the White House in 2020.

Trump Tweets Eye-Opening ObamaGate Comparison as Joe Pientka Remains At-Large

The left is trying to cover their tracks, but President Trump has employed some of the world’s finest political bloodhounds.

Published

on

Where there was once “RussiaGate”, we now have the all-encompassing ObamaGate scandal, in which every new piece of evidence we discover appears to support the idea that the outgoing administration, under the supervision and responsibility of Barack Obama, was involved in the sort of smear campaign that Hollywood producers would pan as being too “far-fetched” for the silver screen.

This is the sort of controversy that could blow Washington wide open, especially as it becomes ever clearer that high-level officials within No. 44’s administration were intimately involved with the plan to frame incoming President Donald Trump as some sort of Kremlin double-agent.

With new evidence emerging every day, it was only a matter of time before the comparisons between ObamaGate and other major scandals emerged. 

President Donald Trump continued Wednesday to raise questions about former President Barack Obama spying on his campaign during the 2016 election.

“OBAMAGATE MAKES WATERGATE LOOK LIKE SMALL POTATOES!” he wrote on Twitter in all-caps.

Then came even more damning allegations.

“New papers make CLEAR that the Obama Administration SPIED, in an unprecedented manner, on the Trump Campaign and beyond, and even on the United States Senate,” he wrote.

Trump spent Tuesday night retweeting news and information on Twitter about the Russia “hoax” investigation as Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grennell spent his last day declassifying new documents about the case.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany suggested the newly confirmed Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe could release more information about the tactics used by the FBI and the Obama administration to spy on Trump’s campaign.

“This President has overseen an ODNI (Office of the Director of National Intelligence) that has given the American people a lot of information that I think they’re entitled to see,” she said during a press briefing. “And one of the things the President has asked for is, where are the 302s — the summaries of that interview with Michael Flynn?”

The missing 302’s have become the next hinge point in this necessary counter investigation, and the only man left who can help sort his out, FBI Agent Joe Pientka, has essentially gone missing.

House Republicans Sue Pelosi For Defying ‘231-Year Constitutional Tradition’ With Proxy Voting

Published

on

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announces a lawsuit against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) brought by his party’s caucus in an effort to block voting by proxy in the chamber.

“I just filed a lawsuit in federal court to overturn Speaker Pelosi’s unconstitutional proxy voting scheme,” tweeted McCarthy on Tuesday evening. “It could allow as few as 20 Representatives to control the votes of 220. This is NOT the representative democracy our Founders envisioned or what our Constitution allows.”

TDW:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) filed a lawsuit against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday evening in an attempt to block the House of Representatives from allowing representatives to vote on behalf of up to ten other members of Congress as a designated proxy voter.

In addition to McCarthy, nearly two dozen Republican members of Congress have signed on as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which also names the sergeant-at-arms and House clerk, two figures who serve a notable role in the proxy voting plan, as defendants.

The lawsuit states that, so far, 55 members of Congress had sent letters to the House clerk designating another representative as their official proxy voter. As of Tuesday evening, an additional four members of congress officially designated another representative as their proxy, bringing the total to 59 members, all of whom are Democrats.

The lawsuit, a copy of which was posted by The New York Times, accuses the Majority of ignoring “what the constitution demands of it,” and asks that the court “not do the same” in its ruling. More

The representatives need to show up for work or resign from their office. These people are overpaid and get benefits for life the least they can do is show up in person to do their jobs. They already get too many privileges and have enough special rules just for themselves. The rest of us are going back to work and they should too.

POTUS Reflect on ‘Chance to Break the Deep State’ in Powerful New Interview

President Trump is practically daring the Deep State to show themselves at this point.

Published

on

Donald Trump’s election in 2016 was largely predicated on the idea that the NYC business mogul would arrive in Washington DC and figuratively burn the place to the ground.

The American people had been victimized long enough by the lobbyists, special interest groups, and other vermin that dwelled within the Washington swamp.  Trump understood this explicitly and made sure to promote his hopes for extermination during that grueling campaign.

Now, from his post in the Oval Office, President Trump is continuing this populist campaign, and doing so with such gusto that he has made the once-clandestine “Deep State” a household moniker.

During a recent interview with Sharyl Atkisson, the Commander in Chief even went so far as to call out the Deep State by name, threatening to “break” them in the coming months.

“When you look at what [acting DNI] Richard Grenell has done in eight weeks, these people didn’t do anything for two and a half years. They should have been exposing this. So I’m very disappointed in certain people. And some people have done a phenomenal job, but what am I doing? I’m fighting the deep state. I’m fighting the swamp. And I said I was doing it. And I’m exposing the swamp. I think if it keeps going the way I’m going, and Ratcliffe is fantastic,” he said.

“If it keeps going the way it’s going, I have a chance to break the deep state. It’s a vicious group of people. It’s very bad for our country. And that’s never happened before,” Trump said.

The storm is coming, folks, and the President is ready to hunker down and push us on through to the other side of it.

President Trump Told by Baltimore Mayor to ‘STAY AWAY’ for Memorial Day

This is a stunt, plain and simple, and we can only hope that Americans will see right through it. 

Published

on

In this time of great “resistance”, every Democratic politician and their brother is grandstanding in an effort to be seen “standing up” to Donald Trump.

This is the cheapest and easiest way for the liberal left to score political points in 2020, and some of these shenanigans are just too ridiculous to believe.

Take Baltimore’s Mayor for example, who took to Twitter, (and not official channels of communication), to implore that President Trump not complete a preplanned visit to the city for Memorial Day.

The mayor of Baltimore is asking President Donald Trump to stay home ahead of a planned trip to Fort McHenry for Memorial Day, calling it “not a smart thing to do” as the city remains on lockdown over the coronavirus.

“That President Trump is deciding to pursue non-essential travel sends the wrong message to our residents, many of whom have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 virus,” Mayor Bernard “Jack” Young said in a statement Thursday.

Trump is scheduled on Monday to visit the city’s Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, which has been closed to all visitors since late March due to the coronavirus. While Maryland began phasing out its statewide “stay-at-home” order last week, the city of Baltimore’s is still in place. Young told CNN on Friday he got no heads-up about Trump’s visit.

“Dear Mr. President @realDonaldTrump, please stay home!” Young said on Twitter Thursday.

The smackdown that Young received from the White House was swift and epic.

A spokesperson for the White House, Judd Deere, said in a statement that Trump will not stay home.

“The brave men and women who have preserved our freedoms for generations did not stay home and the President will not either as he honors their sacrifice by visiting such a historic landmark in our Nation’s history,” Deere said.

This is a stunt, plain and simple, and we can only hope that Americans will see right through it.

Democratic Pundit Says Biden’s ‘You Ain’t Black’ Comment Won’t Mean ‘Diddly Squat’

This whole argument sounds like the dialogue from a B-grade movie set in the 1940’s.

Published

on

At the end of this 2020 race, the Democrats are going to be exhausted.  They’ve already spent much of race trying to carry poor, old Joe Biden across the finish line, despite his constant stream of worrisome gibberish and tawdry temper tantrums.

It should be telling that the Democrats’ best shot at taking the White House back is a man who once called a female town hall attendee a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”, and then told a Detroit factory worker that he was “full of sh**” just weeks later.  This is the very best that the party can muster, and now the onus is on their operatives to keep the Biden dream alive…for what that’s worth.

That’s why they paraded out a similarly archaic-tongued pundit to try to defend Biden’s recent insinuation that “you ain’t black” if you’re considering voting for Donald Trump.

Friday on MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour,” Democratic strategist James Carville was dismissive of comments made by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden earlier in the day, which he told radio’s “The Breakfast Club” if one did not vote for him, they “ain’t black.”

Carville acknowledged it was a “dumb thing” for the former vice president to say. However, he downplayed the long-term political consequences.

“Look, it was kind of a dumb thing to say,” Carville said. “And he said I’m sorry. I said it. This is him. The effects of this are through the weekend, all right? This is not going to be mean diddly squat in the long-term. And Gene is right. You’ve got one guy telling people to take Clorox and a drug that is ill-advised against. It is not an equivalency, but the Democrats — we love to go, ‘Oh God, oh God, Biden is terrible. He messed up. What are we going to do?’”

One can only imagine what other political travesties don’t “mean diddly squat” to James Carville these days.

Comey in The Crosshairs Again as Wray Opens Probe into FBI’s Handling of Gen. Flynn

Now that’s how you drain a swamp!

Published

on

President Trump told the world that he was going to Washington to drain the swamp, and that is precisely what he’s doing.

And no single case is quite as swampy as the one surrounding former national security advisor Michael Flynn, who was charged with lying to the FBI but later had his charges dropped by the Department of Justice after it was revealed that the FBI has considered tricking him into lying.  Then, when that evidence wasn’t strong enough, the Bureau appeared to have rewritten their assessment of the interview in order to send Flynn up the river.

Despite the DOJ’s action, Judge Emmet Sullivan is continuing to exploit his position to keep Flynn on the ropes.

Amid this continued kerfuffle, the FBI is now launching their own investigation into what exactly happened during that 2017 probe.

The FBI announced Friday that Director Chris Wray has ordered an internal review of the handling of the bureau’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, which will include examining whether current FBI employees “engaged in misconduct.”

“FBI Director Christopher Wray today ordered the Bureau’s Inspection Division to conduct an after-action review of the Michael Flynn investigation,” the bureau said in a statement.

The review will be handled by the bureau’s Inspection Division, the FBI said. That division is similar to an internal affairs office in a police department.

The situation is no joke, either.

The bureau said the “after-action review” will have a two-fold purpose: evaluating the FBI’s role in the case and determining whether any “current employees engaged in misconduct,” as well as identifying whether any “improvements” might be warranted to FBI procedures.

“Although the FBI does not have the prosecutorial authority to bring a criminal case, the Inspection Division can and will evaluate whether any current onboard employees engaged in actions that might warrant disciplinary measures,” the FBI said.

And while the “current employees” line may only apply to the mysterious Joe Pientka, there is little dope that whatever Wray finds will have former Director James Comey’s fingerprints all over it, which could in turn prompt a congressional investigation as well.
