  • RINOS Making Way For The Era of the Holier-Than-Thou Accusers

    Republicans should do as many as their constituents do and stop believing every word they read in the New York Times. We have now entered—without much screaming and kicking along the way— in The Era of the Holier-Than-Thou Accusers. That the getting to be prolific accusers are also the abusers of innocent targeted victims seems to be going straight over the heads of the chattering classes.

    A Democratic senator on the Judiciary Committee says he believes the federal government is 'moving toward indictment and charges' against President Donald Trump. But not surprisingly, the supposed agents are nowhere near a point where they can lodge a specific accusation at the President.

    Ah, purity campaigns — the projects from which neither party ever learns any lasting lessons. The group Justice Democrats recruited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to run against Joe Crowley in a ridiculously safe Democratic seat as a way to shake up the status quo and gain a little political traction. Crowley, who had been part of the House Democrats’ leadership clique, fell asleep at the switch and lost his primary, leading to Ocasio-Cortez’ easy layup in November.Now, NBC reports, AOC has joined up with Justice Democrats again for a new recruiting drive aimed at generating primary challenges against her new colleagues...

    Do you recall back in July of 2016 when candidate Donald J. Trump brought down the house at a campaign press conference in Miami by jokingly pleading with the Russians to hack into Hillary Clinton’s emails? Bill’s wife Bruno, as we call her, was claiming that she had lost some 30,000 emails and so Donald Trump got a laugh by saying, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope your able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” At least he got a laugh from the civilized minority who were following him. Apparently, we of the civilized minority were contributing to...

    12:30 p.m. Seven Democratic lawmakers, including newly elected freshmen, have arrived at the White House ready to ask President Donald Trump to reopen the government while talks continue over border security. It's the first group of rank-and-file Democrats to meet with Trump during the shutdown, which stretched into its 26th day Wednesday. The White House has been trying to peel lawmakers away from Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (puh-LOH'-see), but invitations to Democrats earlier this week were declined. Those arriving Wednesday for the midday meeting in the Situation Room included five freshmen, several of whom did not back Pelosi as...

    Nancy Pelosi is now looking for revenge against Democrats who worked to keep her from regaining the speakership, POLITICO reported. Her primary target was Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY), who lead the charge against Pelosi. During a closed-door meeting on Tuesday night, Pelosi made it clear she didn't want Rice to serve on the prestigious Judiciary Committee. The entire New York delegation reportedly came to Rice's defense, arguing that she has the most seniority and her background as a former prosecutor made her more than qualified for the position. Pelosi recommended several freshman over Rice, saying there were already enough...

    "Bullets and booze don't mix," Alderman Edward Burke growled. Then the Chairman of the Finance Committee vowed to fight the NRA. He had spent much of his 50 years in power fighting for gun control. And the man dubbed “Alderman-for-Life”, whose wife who sat on the Illinois Supreme Court, had the heft. Five years ago, Chicago had lost yet another of its serial gun control battles. But Burke and the Democrat machine were vowing to go on fighting with more laws attempting to restrict the Second Amendment. Burke, an Obama and Blagojevich ally, and the godfather of Chicago politics (dubbed...

  • POLL: A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS SUPPORT RAISING THE TOP TAX RATE TO 70 PERCENT

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her Republican critics have both called her proposal to dramatically increase America's highest tax rate "radical" but a new poll released Tuesday indicates that a majority of Americans agrees with the idea. In the latest The Hill-HarrisX survey — conducted Jan. 12 and 13 after the newly elected congresswoman called for the U.S. to raise its highest tax rate to 70 percent — a sizable majority of registered voters, 59 percent, supports the concept. Ocasio-Cortez has not introduced any legislation to enact the concept but the survey shows a broad cross-section of Americans supports it,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is slated to join the committee leading the House's oversight of U.S banks, lenders and financial markets. Ocasio-Cortez has been recommended by Democratic leaders for a spot on the House Financial Services Committee, a Democratic source told The Hill on Tuesday. The full roster of Democrats joining the committee is expected to be released as soon as Tuesday night. Ocasio-Cortez told Hill.TV in November that she has expressed interest in the Financial Services panel to the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, which doles out seats on House committees. Politico reported last week that Ocasio-Cortez was "poised...

    Breitbart ^ | January 15, 2019 | MATTHEW BOYLE
    Several freshman Democrat members of the new House of Representatives majority have turned on Speaker Nancy Pelosi in her steadfast refusal to fund President Donald Trump’s planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and are instead seeking for Democrats to cut a deal on the wall with Trump. The ongoing partial government shutdown, which affects a quarter of the federal government and is now the longest shutdown in the history of the United States, began late last year just before Christmas. It dragged through New Years into the new Congress, and Pelosi–after she won the Speakership vote after fending...

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw questioned Monday whether the trip to Puerto Rico by congressional Democrats was a good decision amid the deadlock on border security. About 30 lawmakers traveled to Puerto Rico -- with their families and lobbyists -- for a winter retreat over the weekend despite the partial government shutdown. "It sounds like they had a lot of fun. They've also been talking a lot about the plight that federal workers see themselves in," Crenshaw said on The Story. "They're not wrong about that, but if we're gonna talk about that then I don't know if these excursions to Puerto...

    Rather than deal with Illegal immigrant wave number 2, the Democrats on the Hill engage in wet dreams and socialism. A 70% tax rate?? This is the proposal that will bring in American votes - Yeah Right. Government run healthcare "Medicare for all". Yeah Obamacare skyrocketed premiums. So instead lets Tax them to a literal death with European style healthcare. Abolish the Electoral College so that New York, California, and Illinois rules - the little states be D*mned. 100% renewable Energy. Lets just ban gasoline and diesel vehicles like Trucks and Cars, and depend on wind and solar energy for...

    Democrat leaders refused to participate in a working lunch with President Donald Trump on Jan. 15, instead boycotting the meeting amid the ongoing partial government shutdown. ADVERTISING Democrats summarily rejected invitations for the lunch, the White House said. The president still held the lunch, meeting with nine House Republicans: Reps. Susan Brooks (Ind.), Rodney Davis (Ill.), Doug Collins (Ga.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brad Wenstrup (Ohio), Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio), Jodey Arrington (Texas), Van Taylor (Texas), and Clay Higgins (La.).
