It has been reported that the U.S. Senate intends to go forward with its impeachment proceedings without calling any new witnesses, despite the pressure by House Democrats to depose even more people.
Even though House Democrats have no role whatever in determining how the U.S. Senate configures its proceedings, Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi has refused to send her impeachment charges to the upper chamber while trying to force the Senate to bow to her wishes on how they will proceed.
Pelosi and her unhinged caucus is attempting to force the Senate to call even more of the fake “witnesses” Democrat called in the House prior to the finding that Trump should be impeached.
But Senate Republicans are signaling that they see no reason to hear from any more of these partisan, witch hunting “witnesses” because House Democrats have already utterly failed to make their case for removing the president from office in the first place.
“I’m ready to vote now,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) told The Hill. “I think the articles are a joke.”
Still, Hawley added, “It’s time for him to have his day in court. The president deserves to have due process.”
Eric Ueland, White House director of legislative affairs, also said that the Democrat case is full of holes.
“The facts belie the allegation and the facts speak very strongly for themselves,” Ueland said.
Senate Democrats, though, want to parade more partisan “witnesses” before the Senate in an attempt to keep the proceedings rolling as long as possible to keep a cloud hanging over Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.
But Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that there is no need for more witnesses. And if they did, they’d be calling people the Democrats don’t want called.
“If we go down in the witness path, we’re going to want the whistleblower. We’re going to want Hunter Biden,” McConnell said last week. “You can see here that this is the kind of mutual assured destruction episode that will go on for a long time.”

Bernie Sanders: Illegal Immigrants “Entitled” To Same Government Benefits As Citizens
Bernie Sanders wants Americans to pay for the undocumented.“What our campaign is about and what our administration will be about is rethinking America…understanding that all of our people…when I say all, I also mean the undocumented in this country. That all of our people are entitled to basic human rights.”

— Steve Guest (@SteveGuest) February 22, 2020
Bernie Sanders: Today we got 500,000 people sleeping out on the streets of America. Today we have 18 million families paying 50% of their limited incomes for housing. Today we have hundreds of thousands of bright young people who cannot afford to get a higher education. Today we have 45 million paying a student debt that many of them cannot afford to pay.
So, what our campaign is about and what our administration will be about is rethinking America, understanding that all of our people – when I say “all,” I also mean the undocumented in this country – that all of our people are entitled to basic human rights.
Bernie always puts illegal aliens before American Citizens. How this guy gets any votes is downright scary.
Twitter lets loose:
if Bernie was to be elected the implementation of his policies would put this nation into bureaucratic gridlock. The possibility becomes reality, of masked street rovers, weapons in hand, being emboldened into even further, dare I say, outright fascist violent actions #Trump2020

The inevitable result of Gov’t *granting* “rights” rather than protecting inherent rights.
Gov’t can provide nothing to anyone that it hasn’t first seized by force from someone else.
A gov’t powerful enough to provide anything is powerful enough to take away everything.

Warren Pushes Open Borders Agenda, While Vowing To Stop ICE Deportation Raids
2020 Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren pushed parts of the Democrats’ open borders agenda, saying she will stop all ICE immigration law enforcement deportation raids during a CNN town hall yesterday.
Here’s the video:

That is why we don’t want Elizabeth Warren. The American people should always come first.
No..it is NOT wrong!! If an American commits a crime, they’re arrested. If an ILLEGAL immigrant comes here they can’t be arrested?? I’m sorry Liz, having a little trouble with that one.

An open border is a border that enables free movement of people (and often of goods) between jurisdictions with few or no restrictions on movement, that is lacking substantive border control. How in any way is this a good idea? I expect no answers.

Michael Bloomberg To Release Women Who Complained About Him From Non-Disclosure Agreements
Michael Bloomberg announced he would release women from three non-disclosure agreements if they wanted to speak publicly about sexual harassment while working at his media company.
“I’ve had the company go back over its record and they’ve identified 3 NDAs that we signed over the past 30-plus years with women to address complaints about comments they said I had made,” Bloomberg announced on his website today.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will release any of the women who previously agreed to non-disclosure agreements because of complaining about him.
Bloomberg, who is running for the Democratic nomination, acknowledged that his company Bloomberg LP agreed to three NDAs specifically regarding his conduct, and that any of them will be released from those binding contracts if they request, according to a statement he released Friday.
He said in a statement, “I’ve decided that for as long as I’m running the company, we won’t offer confidentiality agreements to resolve claims of sexual harassment or misconduct going forward.”
The announcement comes after the former mayor faced significant backlash over a litany of NDA’s agreed upon with female employees.
only certain ones though.

But only three of the least damaging NDA’s out of god only knows how many. Does he expect to be praised for taking his boot off their throats now? “I’ll let you speak now,” says the guy who pays to silence women.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg Nails ‘Socialist’ Bernie Sanders: You’re ‘A Millionaire With 3 Houses’
Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg took aim at the hypocrisy of socialist Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders during NBC’s presidential debate by pointing out how Sanders is a millionaire who owns three homes.

“What a wonderful country we have,” Michael Bloomberg said. “The best known socialist happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What’d I miss here?”
“You’ll miss that I work in Washington,” Bernie Sanders responded.
“That’s the first problem,” Michael Bloomberg shot back.

Stacey Abrams Says She’d “Jerry-Rig The System And Go Around The Constitution” To End “Racist” Electoral College
Geez, why am I not surprised that someone who won’t accept their election loss would decide they want to do something completely un-Constitutional?
Promoted as a possible Vice President, Stacey Abrams joined on The View to explain why the electoral college is racist and classist.
— The View (@TheView) February 17, 2020
Sunny Hostin asked: “One more question. You’ve called the Electoral College a racist and classist system. Can you just break it down in the way, you know how to?”
Stacey Abrams went on a nonsensical rant calling the Electoral College a racist system that we needed to go.
Joy Behar jumped in and said no chance the GOP will go along with that when Abrams stunned the audience and said we should abolish the electoral college and “jerry-rig the system and go around the Constitution” by getting enough states to back a popular vote bill.
She added she “didn’t have time,” to follow proper procedure and use a Constitutional amendment as enshrined in law.
On ICE and the census Abrams said:
“If you want to make sure that the person knocking on your door isn’t I.C.E., answer the census online.”
“People who are afraid that if you answer the census they’ll be able to find you because you have a warrant, you owe somebody money, whatever, if you have a light bill or a cell phone, they know how to find you.”
“So answer the census so you can get your money and your political power because that’s how we decide congressional leaders, how we decide school board members, how we decide every level of political power.”
“Answer the census in 2020, get your money and be counted.”
Everything is racist thesedays lol. The word has lost all meaning thanks to people like you 👍🏻

Leftist Mob Attacks Conservative ‘Gun Girl’ At Ohio University
Second Amendment activist ‘gun girl’ Kaitlin Bennett was attacked by an angry intolerant mob of leftists at Ohio University. The videos of the attack are below.
“This is what happens when a Trump supporter goes to a college campus,” Bennett wrote on social media. “Leftists at @ohiou (Ohio University) started a riot when @Joelpatrick1776 and I showed up, and the @oupolice (Ohio University Police) let it happen.”

Three Democrats Responsible for Impeachment Hit with Serious Ethics Complaints
Three Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee that helped impeach President Trump have been hit with serious ethics complaints.
Three Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee that helped impeach President Trump have been hit with serious ethics complaints this week, according to a report.
The complaints centered around campaign finance violations.
Per Fox News:
Nonprofit watchdog group Americans for Public Trust filed complaints with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) against Reps. Madeleine Dean, D-Pa., Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Lucy McBath, D-Ga., calling for investigations of possible violations of House rules and federal law. The organization, founded by former National Republican Congressional Committee research director Caitlin Sutherland, also filed complaints against Dean and McBath with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
“All three of these members have engaged in disturbing activities that appear to us to be violations of federal law and House rules. This is especially alarming given all three sit on the prestigious House Judiciary Committee, which has direct oversight responsibilities over the U.S. Department of Justice and, by extension, the nation’s law enforcement,” said Adam Laxalt, former Nevada attorney general and outside counsel to Americans for Public Trust. “We’re calling on the Federal Election Commission and the Office of Congressional Ethics to immediately investigate these suspicious activities.”
Naturally, the Democrats are desperate to ignore the charges and refused to comment on Monday.
The charges against Madeleine Dean maintain that she illegally used funds raised for her failed quest for Lt. Governor for her campaign for congress. Not only would this be a violation of Federal Election Commission rules, but also House of Representatives rules.
As for Jayapal, the complaints say she illegally solicited donations that were linked to a specific vote or action taken by a member of the House and solicited money connected with the performance of her official duties.
Then there are the charges against McBath that claim that she remained employed by the extremist anti-gun group, Everytown for Gun Safety, after she was elected, and that she went on TV as a congressperson advocating for EGS’s policies.
The group also charges that EGS gave McBath campaign funds, too:
“However, Everytown began spending in the election for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District while Representative McBath was still serving as the group’s national spokesperson,” the OCE complaint says. “It is not publicly known what level of involvement Representative McBath had in Everytown’s expenditures against her eventual general election opponent while she was still employed by Everytown.”
