Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson has an extensive review of the way the Democrats tried to sabotage Trump’s 2016 election that is a must read.
Democrats have denied that any of them coordinated with Ukraine to meddle in the Trump campaign and the U.S. elections, but facts seem to say otherwise.
Attkisson laid out the whole month-by-month timeline and her review sends a disturbing signal of just how corrupt the Democrats really are.
The reporter points out, “the alleged efforts by Democrats and Ukraine to ‘sabotage’ the Trump campaign in 2016 did impact the race, even though Trump won in the end.”
The first bit of evidence comes in the actions of Democrat operative Alexandra Chalupa.
Democrats have repeatedly claimed the reporting on Chalupa, her work for the DNC, her meetings with Ukrainians, and her meetings with reporters in Ukraine and the U.S., is “debunked” and a “conspiracy theory.” In public accounts since the original news articles, Chalupa has claimed her role and intentions have been misrepresented.
A Ukrainian-American, Chalupa reportedly acknowledged in a 2017 interview with Politico that she worked as a consultant for the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign to publicly expose Trump campaign aide Paul Manafort’s links to pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.
Chalupa has claimed that she was tracking Manafort since 2014, long before there was a Trump campaign. The FBI was also tracking Manafort during that time, again, long before he worked for Trump.
This is where Ukraine came in:
The Ukrainian embassy proceeded to work “directly with reporters researching Trump, Manafort and Russia to point them in the right directions,” according to an embassy official (though other officials later deny engaging in election-related activities.)
Then the DNC got in on the action:
On March 30, 2016, Chalupa reportedly briefed Democratic National Committee (DNC) staff on alleged Russian ties to Manafort and Trump. It was the day after the Trump campaign hired Manafort to manage the July Republican convention.
With the “DNC’s encouragement,” Chalupa reportedly asked the Ukrainian embassy to arrange a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to discuss Manafort’s lobbying for Ukraine’s former president Viktor Yanukovych. The embassy reportedly declined to arrange the meeting but became “helpful” in trading info and leads, according to Politico’s reporting.
Attkisson went on to note that Ukrainian embassy officials and Chalupa “coordinat[ed] an investigation with the Hillary team” into Manafort, according to a source in Politico. This effort reportedly included working with U.S. media.
Well. The Democrats have been screeching about “collusion” to affect the U.S. election for three years, now.
Turns out Democrats are right… only it was the Democrats who were doing the colluding, not Trump.
If you want the full timeline, check out Attkisson’s timeline. It has much, much more.

Gowdy: Stop Giving Classified Briefings To Any ‘Epidemic Leaker’
Former Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy urged top intelligence officials to stop delivering sensitive briefings to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff because he is “epidemic leaker.”
“What the Intelligence Committee needs to give some thought to is to stop briefing someone who has a history and is an epidemic leaker. Quit briefing him,” Gowdy told Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“Yeah, Sean, we spent … at least two years for [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller to tell us there was no evidence of collusion. It took two minutes this time to for us to find out there was no evidence. As soon as a Republican asked the briefer in a classified intel briefing ‘what evidence do you have to support that assessment?’ The answer was none.”
Why don’t people who leak classified information ever get arrested?
The Fox News contributor was prompted to make the comment during a discussion on recent allegations that Russia is actively working to secure President Donald Trump’s reelection Gowdy says at least this latest Russia collusion hoax has been nipped in the bud before it took on a life of its own.
While grateful that this latest story was addressed quickly, Gowdy wondered why classified information continues to be leaked. “We were lectured by the D.C. media and the Democrats that ‘No one is above the law.’ Remember that, Sean? How many times have we heard ‘no one is above the law?’ Apparently except whoever leaked classified information from [Democratic California Rep.] Adam Schiff’s [intelligence] committee.”
When asked why there have been no legal repercussions for Schiff after claiming he had evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia, Gowdy replied that Schiff was largely talking to the media. More
President Trump should arrange a classified briefing for Adam Schiff of false information designed to ferret out “the intelligence leaker” and when the false information (that Schiff is the only one who’s been told about it) ends up on the front page of the NY Times… prosecute him for improper handling of classified data.

Democrat Congresswoman Rips Bernie After His Castro Defense
Florida Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell went after presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders about his remarks on criminal Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro during an interview on “60 Minutes.”
“As the first South American immigrant member of Congress who proudly represents thousands of Cuban Americans, I find Senator Bernie Sanders’ comments on Castro’s Cuba absolutely unacceptable,” blasted Rep. Mucarsel-Powell, who is of South American descent, on Twitter today.
“The Castro regime murdered and jailed dissidents, and caused unspeakable harm to too many South Florida families,” the Democrat continued. “To this day, it remains an authoritarian regime that oppresses its people, subverts the free press, and stifles a free society.”

On “60 Minutes” last night, Sanders defended Castro to host Anderson Cooper, emphasizing the dictator’s “literacy program.”
“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know?” the socialist told Anderson Cooper, according to CBS News. “When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?”
Fidel Castro had his troops do target practice on his political opposition. But looking at it from Senator Bernie Sanders’ perspective, at least those that Castro assassinated had the ability to read and write.
Rep. Donna Shalala hopes that Sanders in the future “will take time to speak to some of my constituents before he decides to sing the praises of a murderous tyrant like Fidel Castro.”

CNN Mocks Biden After He Claims He Never Said South Carolina Was His Firewall

— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) February 24, 2020
Every time Joe Biden talks he seems annoyed by the people interviewing him. He gets agitated and flustered very easily. Terrible candidate performance.
February 2, 2020 interview with NBC News: BIDEN: I think I’ll do well in Nevada. And I think I have a real firewall in South Carolina. And then we go into the Super Tuesday states that have a significant number of minorities and African Americans,” where “I think I’m gonna do fine. So I don’t think that this is like it has been in the past, that if you haven’t won the first two that you’re done.
It looks like Joe Biden has a massive crack in his South Carolina firewall.
Former Vice President Joe Biden needs to win South Carolina. I mean, he really needs to win the Palmetto State—and not just by a few points. Sen. Bernie Sanders stomped everyone out in Nevada. Sanders won the popular vote in Iowa, won New Hampshire, and now could do well in South Carolina. The momentum is solidly behind him. There doesn’t appear much that could stop him.
Biden has always said the South Carolina will be his firewall. Sanders had trouble with black voters in 2016. This state was where Hillary Clinton pretty much put the contest away. Her strength with black Democrats in the South gave her a delegate lead that Sanders could not overcome. Now, the former vice president hopes to hit the brakes on the Bernie train. Yet, it’s possible that Sanders does well with black voters this go-around. CNN’s Abby Phillip made that point in the aftermath of the Nevada caucuses. And right now, Joe Biden’s support with black voters has dipped 19 percent (via Newsweek). More

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.”
Bernie Sanders: illegal immigrants are "entitled" to the same government benefits as citizens pic.twitter.com/uktJpT6bsg
— 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.

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.
