Extremely Concerned Sen. Feinstein

This should bust the outrage meter on any caring, thinking, honest American in the country. The audacity takes the cake even for a Democrat Senator.

Here is a letter from Dianne Feinstein to DHS, regarding the death of an unaccompanied child who came here illegally. She incentivizes and sponsors this, and cartels too.

Sen Dianne Feinstein @SenFeinstein

I am extremely concerned about the death of an unaccompanied child in the care of HHS. There must be an investigation of the circumstances and actions that led to this tragedy to ensure it never happens again.

Maybe if you also cared about all the deaths and murders of innocent people in your own state — at the hands of illegals and sponsored by sanctuary cities — you might have some credibility on your concern. If only you cared about American citizens, too!

But lawless, borderless agendas are more important to you than the citizens of this country. Then you refuse to call it a crisis, along with the money for the wall.

What really concerns and scares me is what “dogma is living loudly” in you and your borderless caucus of lawlessness. Extremely concerned. That should frighten everyone with a working brain and ears to hear. You defy your oath and the Constitution.

How dare Dianne Feinstein object after pushing the Democrats’ borderless agenda. Yet she will turn the hearing into an emotional bash-fest blaming honorable, caring DHS people.

End Of The Beginning Of Investigation

Cannot a day go by without the Democrats getting slapped in the face and refusing to admit it? Apparently not. They are the Dumbocrats.

Case in point: hearings on AG Barr and a mysterious letter about Barr’s memo on the release of the Mueller Report. Mueller took issue with Barr’s debut and coverage of it.

First item up, William Barr is the acting AG and is in charge of the report. But he released this entire report, painstakingly. How so? Except for redactions of legal procedure, he put out the entire report, also with the help of Mueller’s team.

When it was one of Hillary’s investigations, or a Democrat who was the subject, the report and conclusion was the definitive end of the entire matter. “The end.” And that is exactly what they said and what we were told. However, when Donald Trump is the subject, we see that investigation is never over. Investigation is supposed to go on indefinitely, in an infinite loop. It never ends.

Democrats want to resurrect the Independent Counsel statute. They’ve tried all along from protecting the Special Counsel — to save him — by legislation, to wanting the Special Counsel to report directly to Congress. In other words, since Barr came in to replace Sessions, they wanted to erase him out of the picture the same way Sessions was recused. But Barr would not recuse or step aside. So they are left to try to do it another way — any way they can — to put Congress in the driver seat of the investigation.

Barr as AG is the boss of the Special Counsel. It is not the other way around. Even Mueller does not seem to understand this. Strange that Mueller could have been employed under the Justice Department for 2 years and not understood this chain of command.

So when the Special Counsel investigation ends that is just a mile marker for yet another stage of the never-ending investigation to begin. There is no finality in a “report” or the end of an investigation. It must have no end.

The Russian interference could be grounds for an investigation, but the idea of it actually being an investigation about Trump is a complete ruse. Trump is all they really care about. It was an investigation on Trump masquerading as a Russia interference investigation.

Back up. If it should be about anyone, then it should be about Obama and what he did to prevent the Russia interference of an election. Actually, Obama mocked the idea that a foreign power or government could influence our elections, right from the White House podium. And he had already promised Russia more flexibility in his second term.

If there is to be a knee-jerk comparison with Watergate, then the appropriate comparison of Obama to Nixon should be made. Obama was the one in office at the time. His actions need to be the subject – abuse of power, weaponizing government. What did he know and when did he know it? And what did he do about it and or why not?

We went through over five years hearing there were no illegalities to anything Hillary did. That the investigation definitively ended it and cleared her of any wrongdoing. Case closed. There is no crimes or criminal conduct to talk about. Sure!

But now the Democrats can see a crime behind every action. Not just any crime but high crimes. Obstruction of Justice and treason were on the table for 2 and a half years along with conspiracy — the darkest kind — to commit crimes against the country. Four or five investigations about Trump are not enough?

How about all the unmasking of information under Obama? Remember Obama flowing information between 17 intelligence agencies? Well, then there is Mueller spinning off several investigations into Trump out there to live on. The same M/O. Where was the concern for what Hillary and Obama did? There should be lots of ongoing cases out there.

Can we even measure the overkill and exaggeration at this point? No. How many calls for people to resign? Weeks in office and Dems demand they resign. How many calls for impeachment? Now threats to impeach Barr if he refuses to resign. Wolf Blitzer was outraged that people acted as if Trump is a victim here. Well, because he is!

In the Senate hearing, Barr described Mueller’s letter as “a bit snitty.” Right on! When asked if Congress could have the notes taken on the phone call between he and Mueller, Barr said “No.” Two words that will now memorialize AG Barr in my mind.

War Hero Status: hands off McCain

Last night, again, CNN trotted out their venom for this president. Not presidents in general, just this president in particular. The subject, of course, was John McCain. The media never seems to tire of defending McCain. It was over comments Trump made.

@realDonaldTrump

Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.” Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel. He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!

@MeghanMcCain

Meghan McCain Retweeted Donald J. Trump

“No one will ever love you the way they loved my father…. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?”
5:28 PM – 16 Mar 2019

In this episode of this long running series, Craig Shields opined that whenever people feel compelled to mention the Nazis or slavery in a conversation, they should stop right there. Don’t do it, he said, it will not go well. (never stopped Democrats from mentioning it)

To that firmly made point, Don Lemon chimed in with a remark adding war heroes to it, meaning like McCain. Just don’t do it, Don repeated. April Ryan was sitting there nodding in agreement to Lemon, rolling her eyes a few times shrugging as to why anyone should try to criticize or talk about McCain. Got the message.

But that brings up the point. We cannot mention John McCain in less than glowing terms. He is a war hero, after all, Lemon kept saying. So he was, and that makes him supposedly off limits to any criticism of him or his record.

Shields already said he had major disagreements with McCain because of the McCain-Fiengold Bill on campaign finance reform that attacked free speech. To the suggestion of disagreement, April Ryan rolled her eyes and shook her head back and forth. Nope, apparently one cannot even disagree on policy. No place for that.

Then Don Lemon added like your mother always told you, “don’t speak ill of the dead.” Now that is two reasons you cannot criticize McCain. First, he is a war hero and second, he is now dead. Yep that definitely puts him off the table. Bite your tongue.

So that sets up the scenario, those are the rules! But think about that a minute. Are we not now a generation that is taking issue with all kinds of people for what they did, especially even if they are also war heroes? Yes, we are. We have seen a string of it, tearing down statues and taking names off buildings all because they contributed to an intolerable policy. That means their war record status as a hero is post-facto expunged now.

I thought, you don’t have to look very far. A few examples popped into my head of Robert E Lee, Andrew Jackson and Benedict Arnold. Do they have something in common? (you could pick others too) They were heroes in their own right. Even Benedict Arnold had hero status before going to West Point and then selling out to become a traitor. He’s probably the most stellar example. But we do criticize him. I mean his name is forever smeared as a traitor. Yet he was a formidable soldier who Washington commended.

The point is all these are thoroughly critiqued today as villains of some type. But they were heroes too. Any statues of them would be removed. Whatever good they may have done is now undone by what we know about their actions or tangential support for policies. It doesn’t bother these McCain defenders one bit to bash or condemn those one-time heroes. In fact, it is good to make people aware of their wrongs and associated sins.

Look, I know no one is perfect. That is not my point. Actually, we are all flawed people. We may do great things and still have bad in our lifetime. These days though it is permissible to throw the man’s whole legacy out because of a stain. They are erasing our history the same way. But they will not find anyone perfect. We had founders that owned slaves. Does that blot them out of history? Should we sanitize history with only approved people?

They take the Jefferson Davis statue down and others. All that is good to these people; they endorse more of that cleansing. Except leave John McCain alone. “Leave him alone!”

There is another thing about McCain. Sure there is lots to criticize there. Lucky he never did become president because we know how they are treated — from Nixon to Obama. What about that? They were all still presidents. Yet they are routinely criticized all the time. (especially Republicans) They say but this man, McCain, must be exempt from any criticism. Is that fair? If he would have become president, he would have had criticism from both sides picking on his legacy, much worse than this.

I am getting very sick of how every time someone criticizes McCain, out come his preening guards calling you disrespectful, to remind everyone he is a war hero – End! No one can say a negative word about him. Trump does not follow their special McCain exempt rule.

Borderless Democrats At Your Service

Once again, it is time for one of those rantoramas. At times one cannot control the frustration or disdain even to write a persuasive piece. So instead, I get to say just what I think. And someone really wants us to feel helpless about our circumstances.

I am so sick and tired of this issue of illegal invasion. It has been on the stove for now thirteen plus years. That means it is under the third different administration. Words may escape me in how wrong this all is. At least I know I am not alone in my frustration.

Another thing has become crystal clear. That is if we the people, I mean the sane ones, all know what should be done to stem this problem, then why can’t our illustrious Reps and Senators in Washington do it. I mean this is what we pay them and elect them for, to handle the business of the country. Why is that so difficult for them to do? Back up, their job is not to just tell us what we cannot do or shouldn’t. And many of them are the ones who broke the system in the first and second place.

Excuse me, I must concentrate on these lily liberal, progressive dirtbags here. Yes, I have had it up to my neck too with people saying but it is both sides that are culpable. Stop with that, we know where the real problems come from. Sure there are a few stragglers in the Republican ranks with their own selfish agendas. I’ve talked about that before. But can we finally admit and concentrate on the real problem here?

We may have questioned progressives’ agenda before and called them this or that. We may have even called them UN-American. Now they have upped that in case we missed it.They are plainly Anti-American now. Yes, they have destruction of America as we know it in their sights. Yes, they realize it. And never have they been closer to that goal than at this moment in history, to carry out the demise of our Republic and they are firing from all points. We actually do have a civil war raging on in the country, just by other means, only we aren’t calling it that. These perennial post-American pols antagonize it.

There can be no doubt now about their goal. They’ve told us as much and admitted it. They don’t bother trying to hide or deny it anymore. And that replacement of our entire system is the vehicle by which they will carry out their plans. It was all set up by Obama. We knew it at the time. But all our complaints for eight years that they tried like hell to deny are all being validated in spades. Now it is more like if you like your country you cannot keep your country. It’s called screw America 101.

There are dirtbags and detours every where you look. I like metaphors as much as the next guy to really drive a point home but in this case we don’t need metaphors anymore. Reality is quite bad enough. No, we are not going to play Democrats’ other parlor game of ‘blame Trump because he is president now, so it must be his fault!’ That is as bad as the “both sides” nonsense. He is the one constant fighting it.

I am wondering when it is time for amnesty for Americans, well, just because we if anyone deserve it? We are now last on the list of considerations, it is obviously clear. The ruling class has other matters on their minds, frankly, anything other than us. No, you cannot say that about most Republicans. But you can say it about Democrats. They don’t care about us. In fact, it seems like we are being penalized while everyone else is being rewarded or promoted. Is that their real dream? That seems to be part of their grand justice platform.

And don’t even start me with their social justice bullshit. It’s not social and it sure isn’t justice they want. It is revenge and selective retribution and redistribution they want.

Our priorities are at the very bottom of their list, from securing the border to having a fair justice system, to having respect for law and order. Nope, those things are the antithesis to what they want. So we lose, too bad. The least one needs to do is acknowledge who his/her real enemies are. And they are right there. In fact, they are in our faces almost everyday running to their media appearances and making their declarations from on high. Or they are in hearing rooms representing their own selfish interests, in front of cameras rubbing it in our faces. There is a certain honesty about it all, at least we know they don’t care. And they are proud of it. We are back where we were in 2010, but even worse off.

They will trot out to the campaign trail because they have decided that the only thing of utmost importance is elections. So many of the Reps and Senators are running now, They are part timers. Their real gig is just running for office, sort of like Hillary’s always was. The job itself? They get to decide that, too, not the Constitution or rules. But we are last on their long list of self-serving priorities. Illegal aliens, even those on their way here, somehow get top billing on their considerations. Come one come all.

They’ve given up, long ago, on the idea that they stand up for the working guy. He’s at the bottom of their list, too. Actually, he is much the problem because he is inconvenient to all their other pipe dreams of a Green Economy and a workless society. One where government is in control of everything… and yet responsible for nothing at the same time. They say they are not interested in corporate businesses but they are. Boy are they. They are in their pockets and have their hand out in front of them. It is like old Jesse Jackson’s routine of a shakedown city. Corporate greed is only the means to grease their palms and fleece their campaign coffers. You are an enemy to the state unless you prove otherwise.

The fact that all of this is so blatantly obvious now to us means nothing to them. So it creates contention between us and our representatives. You think they care? They just want to be the permanent ruling class elites. Your value as a pawn in that scheme matters not in the least. They will tell you what is important to them, and they’ll demonstrate it right it front of you. Those principles to you — securing the border, protecting sovereignty, doing the people’s business, honoring an oath of office — are toilet tissue to them.

The next election is all that matters. Always the next election. One thing unimportant during the perpetual campaign cycle, to Democrats, is the will of the people. That is fungible. It is whatever they declare it is. See how the working guy would definitely be at odds with that agenda? These things, common principles, used to be important but that is so 50 years ago. Gone is any illusion of integrity or responsibility.

But I was only getting started.

In Retrospect: MLK Revisited

There is a lonely phrase in MLK’s “I have a dream” speech.

“You have been the veterans of creative suffering” — a line that preceded King’s more famous dream words.

So I know the context in which it was written. But I just can’t help seeing, in hindsight today, an even wider target for those words. There is a fertile audience.

There are a lot of “veterans of creative suffering” in our country today, maybe not in the same way. Granted to a lesser extent than King’s intent. Nevertheless, veterans of creative suffering… by the very government that was suppose to represent, stand for, and defend their rights.

When a government gives its own people the cold shoulder while at the same time gushes over the concerns of illegal aliens, even before they enter the country, then we have lost.

When securing our border is defiantly called an act of immorality, we have lost.

We have lost when a government by the people for the people has become a government against the people, and against its most vulnerable. We have become witnesses to it when a law like the freedom of information act is transposed into the Freedom From Information. When the objective “for the people” becomes for the self-serving politicians.

And this theme continues on in its incremental desire to control the people, not free them; to tread over them rather than lift them up; seeks to overcome and obstruct the people rather than remove obstacles in their way. A government that plots to remove obstacles in the way of an organized invasion, for the sake of their own political lust for power. A government that has over years encouraged this invasion.

When everyone else in the world is entitled to have a dream but the American people. And their dream supersedes our dream.

Creative suffering?

Another hot off the steamy Ignore Page is from Judicial Watch.

So there was a concerted effort within Obama’s administration to get dirty info on Trump spread by a deadline. They high five about meeting their deadline.

Judicial Watch: Documents Reveal Obama State Department Urgently Provided Classified ‘Russiagate’ Documents to Multiple Senators Immediately Ahead of Trump Inauguration

DECEMBER 14, 2018 — Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch today released two sets of heavily redacted State Department documents, 38 pages and 48 pages, showing classified information was researched and disseminated to multiple U.S. Senators by the Obama administration immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The documents reveal that among those receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN).

Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s last-minute efforts to share classified information about Russia election interference issues with Democratic Senator Ben Cardin (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:18-cv-01381)).

The documents reveal the Obama State Department urgently gathering classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a Thursday, January 5, 2017, email chain then-State Department Congressional Advisor Hera Abassi indicates that then-Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland’s bureau was attempting to get Russian investigation related documents to the office of Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) office as quickly as possible. (In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

In the email, with the subject line “For Immediate Review – Call Sheet for S Call with Senator Warner,” Abassi writes:

“I told Cardin’s folks … that the process is long. Can we ensure that there are no holdups on our end?”

Additionally, involved in providing classified information to members of the Senate was Naz Durakoglu, Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs.

In an email dated Thursday, January 19, 2017, with the subject line “Signed, sealed, delivered” Durakoglu apparently confirms that Obama State Department officials were eager to provide the classified material before Trump was sworn into office:

“We made the deadline!” Durakoglu states [Emphasis added] “Thank you everyone for what was truly a Department-wide effort!”

Gee, from departments in government that cannot meet the simplest request or deadline for information now. It just shows me how desperate they were to first keep Trump out, but ultimately setup an investigation to prevent any investigations into what Obama’s administration did. (cover up being the priority and motive from the beginning)

Still, it has been fairly successful considering the leading stories should be about how corrupted and politicized Obama’s administration was and exactly what they were doing. Once again, Jusicial Watch can get info and proof of their conspiracy but Congress cannot. Times changed, we now have several departments of “Don’t Give A Shit.” (DGAS)

Claire, you rascal you!

Fox reports

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill criticized the Senate in a grim farewell speech Thursday, calling it “dysfunctional” and filled with “too many embarrassing uncles.”

The two-term senator from Missouri delivered a farewell speech after she lost her re-election bid in November to the state’s Republican Attorney General Josh Hawley. She questioned the abilities of the Senate, adding she feared for its future: “It just doesn’t work as well as it used to.”

“The United States Senate is no longer the world’s greatest deliberative body and everybody needs to quit saying it until we recover from this period of polarization and the fear of the political consequences of tough votes,” McCaskill said.

She also took aim at her colleagues.

“Peter Morgan, an author, wrote that no family is complete without an embarrassing uncle. We have too many embarrassing uncles in the United States Senate.”

Claire, now there is one less crazy aunt in the Senate. As long as the system worked to keep reelecting you, no matter how crooked, that was okay. As long as you could keep lying and fooling the people it was good. Now that it failed you, send out the torpedoes.

Nothing works like it used to, including you – fortunately.

Tell Me Again….The Way It Goes

Tell me that story again about a county in south Florida, where votes can’t be counted the usual ways. A place that tries our patience on major elections, the way only a child could.

Tell me again, oh wise one, for whom the bell really tolls…. because it never ever tolls for thee. Not in that place, immunized from accountability.

And tell me again, how important it is to count every vote like they are waves on the sea. Tell me again, while they blunder away, how their duties become more important than all the others in the state. Tell me why everything is broken and nothing is ever fixed?

Tell me how this wayward Broward always manages to be the decider in major elections? Do tell me when this election will end? Time will tell, they say, but it never says a peep there. It keeps dragging on and on as if there is no clock or time keeper. Does anyone care?

Tell me again, oh crooked ones, that you are just counting every vote. Funny it never is any other county, just this one making all the stink. You mean the others don’t?

Like sands sifting through the hour glass, these are “the days of our polls.”
We all stand and watch in suspense like drones.

So pardon my disgust at hearing “count every vote”. But how and when they count them never seems to matter. Rules are only for the other guys. Tell me, I’d like to know, how this whole process fits with democracy? Can you give me a hint because I sure don’t know?

The Stocking was hung, with a new spine intact

…in hopes that the GOP could make good use of it.

The formerly spineless Republican Party rebounds

By Bobby Eberle – – Monday, October 8, 2018 | Washington Times

ANALYSIS/OPINION:
If there is one word — one defining, all-encompassing word — that has summed up the state of the Republican Party for years (if not decades), it’s “spineless.” Whether the issue has been illegal immigration, the budget, standing up to Planned Parenthood, or even the wildly unpopular and disastrous Obamacare, Republican “leaders” have tucked their collective tails between their legs rather than stand up and fight. But something remarkable seems to be in the air, and there’s no doubt that the change in resolve has been brought about by Donald J. Trump.

Remember all the rhetoric concerning Obamacare? Analysts said it would fail. Obama officials even admitted they lied about terms. No, you can’t keep your own doctor. No, you can’t keep your own plan. No, prices will not be lower. Republican legislators said they would repeal it. They voted to repeal it. Oh, but wait. Barack Obama was still president, and the Republican votes were simply a side show next to Mr. Obama’s veto. When Donald Trump first came on the scene, he said he would sign legislation repealing Obamacare, but the GOP couldn’t get it done. They showed their complete lack of fortitude and rolled over.

That’s just one example of many, many other issues. …/

Dem Dumpster Fire: Radicals vs. SCOTUS

Today is June 27th, 2018, henceforth to be known as the first day of the Democrat Dumpster Fire, and the hysterical meltdown that ensued to November.

This is what happens, the Democrats become unglued when they don’t get their way.

More at Washington Free Beacon: http://freebeacon.com/politics/liberals-decry-kennedys-retirement/

Here come the tears…

Working Nazi, death camps and Kennedy into the same tweet.
But we are still working on the names for those death camps… creativity in mind.

The “democracy” is collapsing around them, to hear progs tell it. And the way I see it is the republic has been given a 2nd chance, fortunately, from an 8-year death spiral and we are making good use of it.

Now they demand we wait for 2018 elections to nominate a SCOTUS pick.

Meanwhile, we just had a primary election yesterday and Dems, or should I say Democrat Socialists, are telling you what they are about — loudly. The commies have officially cannibalized the Democrat Party. So when they lecture about ‘moderates,’ you can laugh right in their face.

This shows the other thing Democrats do, they lie and then twist everything into a Gordian Knot. They think we can only nominate a Supreme Court Justice every 2 years.

Notice what the term “norms” really means to Leftists. They get their power and way… or revolution. Well, that’s pretty much the same thing it always meant to them for the last 50 years. Just that they now openly admit it. And now some of our naive Repub brethren cannot deny it.

But it is the same thing “mainstream” means to Democrats. Sheila Jackson Lee does a post-primary interview to repeat that’s who we are as Democrats, “we are a big tent party.” No, they consolidated into the commie mainstream. Who is the Dumpster Fire?

Finally, Democrats always complain that Donald Trump is just a reality TV star.
But he completely exposed the ‘reality‘ of who Democrats and the commie Left are.

The Resignation of Me, Al Franken

I’ll include the whole miserable, all about me, speech.  But the lies are just as significant. He married Paul Wellstone, Bill Clinton, and a hat-tip hint to Tom Steyer and impeachment just for flavor. The only guy who could mention I more is Barack Obama.

But I will only go after extensively venting my oratory hole.

Franken said his resignation will take place in the coming weeks.
Read a full transcript of his remarks below: (italicized for emphasis)

Stay tuned for when he actually vacates the Capitol premises.

A couple months ago I felt that we had entered an important moment in the history of this country. We were finally beginning to listen to women about the ways in which men’s actions affect them. The moment was long overdue. I was excited for that conversation and hopeful that it would result in real change that made life better for women all across the country and in every part of our society. Then the conversation turned to me. [1]Over the last few weeks a number of women have come forward to talk about how they felt my actions had affected them. I was shocked. I was upset. But in responding to their claims, I also wanted to be respectful of that broader conversation because all women deserve to be heard and their experiences taken seriously. I think that was the right thing to do. I also think it gave some people the false impression that I was admitting to doing things that in fact I haven’t done.

First strike, have a denial announcement. Did you expect anything else from someone who had to worm his way into the Senate by stealing an election? ‘I respect their voice!’

[2]Some of the allegations against me are simply not true. Others I remember very differently. I said at the outset that the Ethics Committee was the right venue for these allegations to be heard and investigated and evaluated on their merits, that I was prepared to cooperate fully and that I was confident in the outcome. You know an important part of the conversation we’ve been having the last few months has been about how men abuse their power and privilege to hurt women. [3]I am proud that during my time in the Senate I have used my power to be a champion of women. And that I have earned a reputation as someone who respects the women I work alongside every day. [4]I know there’s been a very different picture of me painted over the last few weeks but I know who I really am. Serving in the United States senate has been the great honor of my life. I know in my heart that nothing I have done as a senator, nothing, has brought dishonor on this institution. And I am confident that the ethics committee would agree. Nevertheless today I am announcing that in the coming weeks I will be resigning as a member of the United states senate. [5]I of all people am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the senate with the full support of his party. [6]But this decision is not about me. it’s about the people of Minnesota. And it’s become clear that i can’t both pursue the ethics committee process and at the same time remain an effective senator for them. Let me be clear. I may be resigning my seat, but I am not giving up my voice. I will continue to stand up for the things I believe in as a citizen and as an activist. But Minnesotans deserve a Senator who can focus with all her energy on addressing the challenges they face every day.

There is a big part of me that will always regret having to walk away from this job with so much work left to be done. But I have faith that the work will continue because I have faith in the people who have helped me do it. I have faith in the dedicated, funny, selfless, brilliant young men and women on my staff. They have so much more to contribute to our country, and I hope that as disappointed as they may feel today, everyone who has worked for me knows how much I admire and respect them. I have faith in my colleagues, especially my senior senator Amy Klobuchar. I would not have been able to do this job without her guidance and wisdom. [7]And I have faith, or at least hope, that members of this senate will find the political courage necessary to keep asking the tough questions, hold this administration accountable, and stand up for the truth. I have faith in the activists who organized to help me win my first campaign and who have kept on organizing to help fight for the people who needed us: kids facing bullying, seniors worried about the price of prescription drugs, Native Americans who have been overlooked for far too long, working people who have been taking it on the chin for a generation, everyone in the middle class and everyone aspiring to join it. [7]I have faith in the proud legacy of progressive advocacy that I have had the privilege to be a part of. I think I’ve probably repeated these words 10,000 times over the years, Paul Wellstone’s famous quote, “the future belongs to those who are passionate and work hard.” It’s still true. It will always be true. And most of all I have faith in Minnesota. A big part of this job is going around the state and listening to what people need from Washington, but more often than not, when I’m home, I am blown away by how much Minnesota has to offer the entire country and the entire world. The people I’ve had the honor of representing are brilliant, creative, hardworking, and whoever holds this seat next will inherit the challenge I’ve enjoyed for the last eight and a half years, being as good as the people you serve.

This has been a tough few weeks for me, but I am a very, very lucky man. I have a beautiful, healthy family that I love and that loves me very much. I’m going to be just fine. I’d just like to end with one last thing. I did not grow up wanting to be a politician. I came to this relatively late in life. I had to learn a lot on the fly. It wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t always fun, and I’m not just talking about today. This is a hard thing to do with your life. There are a lot of long hours, and late nights, and hard lessons, and there is no guarantee that all your work and sacrifice will ever pay off. I won my first election by 312 votes. It could have easily gone the other way. And even when you win, progress is far from inevitable. Paul Wellstone spent his whole life working for mental health parity and it didn’t pass until six years after Paul died. This year a lot of people who didn’t grow up imagining that they’d ever get involved in politics have done just that. They’ve gone to their first protest march or made their first call to a member of Congress, or maybe even taken the leap and put their names on a ballot for the first time. [7]It can be such a rush to look around a room of, full of people ready to fight alongside you, to feel that energy, to imagine that better things are possible. You too will experience setbacks, defeats and disappointments. There will be days when you will wonder whether it’s worth it. What I want you to know is that even today, even on the worst day of my political life, I feel like it’s all been worth it. Politics, Paul Wellstone told us, is about the improvement of people’s lives. I know that the work I’ve been able to do has improved people’s lives. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. For a decade now every time I would get tired or discouraged or frustrated, I would think about the people I was doing this for, and it would get me back up on my feet. I know the same will be true for everyone who decides to pursue a politics that is about improving people’s lives. And I hope you know that I will be fighting alongside you every step of the way. With that, Mr. President, I yield the floor. ###

 

Well, too bad he didn’t yield the floor after two words, “I resign.” Don’t count me out until…

Let me paraphrase:

[1]  How they “felt” my actions affected them. I’m shocked. Not that they are upset. But let’s make it clear, I am not admitting anything. They felt erroneously.

Newsflash: Franken, it is not about what they felt, it’s about what you felt.

[2] I remember it differently, like a mutual feeling. I preferred the ethics committee as the right venue…only because I had no choice. So I agreed with it, naturally.

[3] Like all progressive superheroes — of which I must be one — I used my powers only for good, in the end. I championed women, yeah, that’s the ticket. I earned a reputation from women I worked alongside. What I did with other women doesn’t matter.

[4] They all have painted a fraudulent picture of me…. just like I had to fight them for my first election. (Cain Mutiny) But I know who I am. They apparently don’t.

[5] I see that huge unfairness irony of a president and another candidate, but now they are worried about little ol’ me, Al [hands] Franken? Why me? I’m a scapegoat for them.

[6] But this is not about me….. it’s about voters. (ignore how I talk about Me a lot)

[7] I know, you all need an arrogant, idealistic, self-serving lecture on running for [progressive] office. I’m a perfect example. I’ll be with you cheering you on. I’ll channel all your other progressive heroes to my career. It’s borrowing, no stealing, but what the hell?

It’s all been worth whatever the cost to others. They owe me an apology.

Oh, I did not dishonor the institution. I only complimented it and made it so much better with my super-heroic presence, Al Franken. But I shall resign. Adios, sometime, I think!

My Dear John letter

I think a letter is in order to McCain. He McCan’t do anything that might help the GOP even though he had them all helping drag him across his last election.

Now, what GOP, what help? “I don’t need any stinking GOP.” No, he is happy basking in the glow of the left as a proud member of the Resistance.

Last repeal he said was not in AZ’s state interest. This time the governor endorses it and McCain finds an excuse to oppose it on process. Well, John, process this!

You used your conscience for your excuse. Your conscience would not allow you to support it. Maybe you shouldn’t have used that excuse.That very convenient, expedient conscience of yours that most of us didn’t know you ever had.

Those chilling words, “I cannot in good conscience…” Funny how look at everything else his conscience allows him to support. How about the help for those other missing POWs? His conscience was fine with burying all that, and he used as much of “the process” as he could for the means to do it. In fact that is what the process was for, to bury inconvenient things. Process he created to obstruct and confuse the process. How about the process of Campaign Finance Reform, where he used the process to try to control free speech?

McCain was the willing dupe that the left used over and over again through the years. He was media’s go to darling to attack the GOP, since McCain never attacks the left but reserves all his animosity for his own party. (his own party is being generous)

Maverick McCain — nothing Maverick about selling out or trading out. The Maverick who referred to Evangelicals and the right as Agents of Intolerance. We always deserve broad brush names but liberals deserve his best compliments, like Chappaquiddick Ted.

That is another point, John constantly told us that he came in under the Reagan Revolution. Indeed, Reagan had already won and laid the groundwork. All McCain did was attach himself like a leach to the Reagan train. A foot soldier he calls himself. What did he fight for? What part of that Revolution was his? He promptly started a revolution within against the revolution that helped usher him in. And he’s a keeper?

Eventually he would hookup with his stepbrother, Ted Kennedy. Never realizing he was a useful mark for the left, always was. But his heart was in it. That is where his true loyalties lie, with the left. Democrats had him figured better than he did them. Then Republicans granted him wide berth because he called himself a Maverick. More like the 1970’s ford Maverick — cheap, dated, unwanted and obsolete. A Maverick, what’s he given us?

In the 80’s McCain and fellow Senators gave us the Keating five scandal on Lincoln Savings and Loan. That cost the taxpayers over 3 billion and many people lost their life savings. But McCain wasn’t gone. He was worried about himself, not investors or losses. He was one of two Senators who survived to run for reelection. But then he went right back to being the stab in the back Senator.

Then he’d go on to run for president. Kids, don’t try that. He jokes about having lost a few expensive aircraft in his Navy days. He’d go on to basically throw the election for Obama, whom he could not criticize. Sarah Palin could not make up for his compromised campaign.

Failure McCain goes on to deliver the dossier to the FBI in 2016. He flirted with not endorsing or voting for Trump. He came around to run on the same platform declaring he would lead the repeal and replace charge to Obamacare in the Senate. That saved his tough reelection. But afterwards, he promptly went back to opposing Republicans.

So on Obamacare repeal, he claims his conscience just wouldn’t allow him to vote for it. But then he knew his was the decisive vote to kill it. Even prior to taking that vote, McCain went over to huddle with Democrats telling them he was a “No.” That overjoyed Chris Coons, as just one in the group with Chuck Schumer. And he told Dems to take up the defense bill as soon after that vote as they could. He was already maneuvering and moving on after leaving American people in the lurch by his pompous vote. That conscience….

Not quite done wrecking our agenda, he now plans on upending the tax reform bill, if he can. And on and on for the foreseeable future, as long as he is there.

So it’s time, John McCain, to bid you farewell, good riddance. Your so-called conscience has put you way beyond remediation on anything else. A conscience I cannot recognize.

On Tuesday’s election, McCain tries to validate himself — using the left’s talking points:

(CNN)”I predicted this, OK? And unless we get our act together, we’re going to lose heavily,” said Sen. John McCain, …pointing to two recent speeches he’s given where he warned about the President’s divisive rhetoric and impact on the Republican Party going forward.

Your conscience called and wants its excuse back… with interest. Maverick Maniac.

Ode To The Losers

Let’s dispense with this growing, nasty ‘rebellion in the Republican Party’ theme.

These people — and we all know who they mean, McCain, Flake, Corker, Bush — are not rebels. They are losers. They are people who are losing even their support back home. And it is not because they were/are staunch Trump supporters.

What does that mean? It says they could not win, but not because they are tied to Trump. In fact, they are dissenting with Trump. That is the whole point in the media calling them rebels, isn’t it? But their anti-Trump, establishment positions are not popular at all with the people or back home, nor is joining the Resistance against Trump.

Yet media point to this as a pending implosion of the Republican Party. No, we always had these incessant RINOS bucking the trends within. That is not new. It’s old.

What is new is that they are blaming their losing position with their constituents on Trump. They are railing against him calling it divisive politics. No, they have been divisive and dismissive of the party before. They have already been at war with the party.

They can’t blame themselves.

And they are not rebels at all if they are leaving and taking their unpopularity with them. Now if they had any support and were demolition experts, they would stay and finish off the party, which is what the media suggests they are doing. No, they are leaving precisely because they have no support and agenda, other than to oppose Trump. That doesn’t seem to be working for them. Rinos and the left want to make this a Rebel Yell.

Oh, that kind of dissent with us and Trump is popular only with progressives. It is opposition and resistance. Sure Leftists would cheer it. So these so-called “rebels” are trading any Republican credentials for progressive, leftist, Democrat ones.

They stand up to make these diatribes against the Republican Party now. They don’t attack or blame the left. In fact, their sole purpose, like McCain’s, seems to be attacking the right – not the left. They just do it more publicly now. Progs love it. It had little effect on conservatives. It does animate and excite the progressive left though.

So now, tell me exactly how they are rebels? They are leaving with their tales between their legs, blaming Trump for their exit. They are undesirables. What effect is it having on the right? Yes, they do call themselves conservatives but are the same elite estabos that have been undermining conservatives. What is being cut is RINO’s lifeblood support.

The last part is that their real problem is not with Trump; it is with the American people. The establishment was the cause of problems for years. They are the source of the stench in the Swamp. Yet we and Trump are somehow to blame for their elitist demise?

They are the same people who may have waffled on a Supreme Court nominee, illegal immigration, or who bit their royal tongues for 8 years Obama was in office politicizing everything. But now, after swearing off reelection campaigns, they claim liberation to speak their minds. They were unchained before. But no such liberation ever took place under Obama. In that case, they could work with him and his cohorts in corruption.

Resistance and opposition was unpopular for 8 years. It was pooh-poohed as divisive and racist. Now it is all the rage. Throwing the bums out was crazy talk. Now it is cooler than cool. In fact, all they want to talk about is how they can throw out the administration. McConnell got slammed for making Obama a one-term president his goal. Now they put up a petition to impeach Trump from the largest donor of the Democrat Party, at 8 months in office. McConnell was being racist and sinister then. Steyer is praised and Dems are using impeachment as a fundraiser.

Yet we have these Republican whiners agreeing with the far left, calling Trump unstable and all kinds of names. They were turned into the new heroes, the strong, principled ones. Weasels. Rebels of the right? We were the resistance before it was popular. These types are exactly why we elected Trump, and why it was necessary. The left must have missed the revolution, but it was last year. They lost.

The Enemy Within

What do these fine Senators all have in common?

Mitch McConnell
Susan Collins
John McCain
Lisa Murkowski
Rob Portman

If you guessed not on the ballot in the next election, you guessed right. And they all voted against the ‘straight repeal’ amendment on Obamacare.

“Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.; Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Dean Heller, R-Nev.; John McCain, R-Ariz.; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, joined all Democrats to defeat the amendment, which would have given Congress two years to devise a replacement to the 2010 Affordable Care Act.” Fox

So now that all those above are safe in their seats for the midterm, they stand ready and willing as the opposition. They should be marginalized and isolated. Then it wouldn’t hurt Trump or others to do some campaigning in their states.

Most of them fought tough elections and now don’t have a care in the world about accountability. Remember Lisa Murkowski was originally appointed by her father to fill his own seat, after he won the gubernatorial race.

They are the enemy within and will be there for the duration of Trump’s term.

In the Senate, we are told the one major legislative accomplishment was getting Goresuch to the Supreme Court. Mitch is credited for that. But it was mainly achieved in opposition to Obama. And some Senate Republicans had weak knees and wanted to cave on that. So Mitch proved effective at opposition. Now it is a different story.

McCain back….to same old

Lavish on, for the first 5 minutes McCain lectured and praised the institution of the Senate. Lecturing on cooperation within the Senate and trusting each other again, he languished on about “serving the people who elected us,” into attacking outer-chamber voices:

“Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio, and television and the internet. To hell with them! [applause] They don’t want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood. Let’s trust each other… return to regular order.”

The hack is back …with his invincible straw man.

So he is back to criticizing those outside voices and those who try to hold Congress and the Senate accountable. Yes, the problem is those outside voices. Sorry, we are worried about the inside voices who do the real damage. That America is fed up with the kind of shit-sandwiches your body is trying to serve up, should be a clue how we feel about it. You are not interested in the will of the people. No, you are an elitist who only uses the words “servants of a great nation” as cover for your real agenda of arrogance. Arrogance that has no limits to wall off the will of the people. Any different than Hillary’s “Deplorables”?

After all, what are elites there for but to do what the people oppose — the corrupt comradery we resent — by scheming against us in every major action. Especially when they team up against us. But that is the bipartisanship McCain stands for. He’s back to branding us Agents of Intolerance. His only real fight is with any outsider opposing him.

So they want to shut us up or shut us down. Marginalize us. There is the resistance and then the resistance within, like John McCain. But if anyone is the opposition it is him.

At a later point, he said we Americans “don’t hide behind walls, we breach them.” A clear attack on Trump and the Americans who want to secure our border. Don’t lecture us about walls. We care about our nation’s security. Stop warring with the will of the people.

Media, pols frenzy on Trump judge

What a week Repubs are having, or scratch that – what a field day Liberal media and Dems are having attacking Republicans and Trump over his judge statements.

It seemed each Republican voluntarily took a swipe at Trump’s statements. Some jumped at the opportunity. Here’s the latest partial run down.

Racism was on the menu. Paul Ryan called Trump’s remarks textbook racism.

Newt Gingrich:

“This is one of the worst mistakes Trump has made. I think it’s inexcusable,” Newt said on Fox News Sunday.

“He has every right to criticize a judge. He has every right to say certain decisions aren’t right and his attorneys can file to move the venue from the judge. But first of all this judge was born in Indiana. He is an American. Period.” [CBS]

Paul Ryan

“I think that should be absolutely disavowed,” adding that it was a “textbook example of a racist comment.”

“I do absolutely disavow those comments,” he said. “I’m not going to defend these kind of comments because they’re indefensible.” .. I think it’s “absolutely unacceptable.” [CBS]

So now Ryan insinuated Donald Trump is a textbook racist because he made statements questioning the bias of the judge, Questioning a judges bias and conflict makes you a racist.

Friday Ryan: “Look, the comment about the judge the other day just was out of left field for my mind. It’s reasoning I don’t relate to. I completely disagree with the thinking behind that. And so, he clearly says and does things I don’t agree with, and I’ve had to speak up from time to time when that has occurred, and I’ll continue to do that if it’s necessary. I hope it’s not.”

How about Ryan’s reasoning that we cannot relate to, like the Omnibus package?

Erick Erickson

“The attacks are racist. To claim someone is unable to objectively and professionally perform his job because of his race is racism, and damn the GOP for its unwillingness to speak up on this. The party of Lincoln intends to circle the wagons around a racist. Damn them for that.”

Joe Scarborough

“It’s completely racist. They can’t be morally outraged this week when they knew what he was doing last week.”

Kasich

“Attacking judges based on their race &/or religion is another tactic that divides our country. More importantly, it is flat out wrong.”

Sen Susan Collins

“His statement that Judge Curiel could not rule fairly because of his Mexican heritage does not represent our American values. Mr. Trump’s comments demonstrate both a lack of respect for the judicial system and the principle of separation of powers.”

Source: Politico

Mitch is busy comparing Trump to Goldwater, who he had no love for.

Mitch McConnell:

“In interviews on tour promoting his book, McConnell has said the election will be a choice “between two very unpopular candidates” and that he worries Trump could permanently alienate Latino voters from the GOP in the same way that Goldwater caused black voters to bolt from the party. He has also begun making the case that a Republican Senate could serve as a check on Trump and prevent him from abusing power or doing any real damage to the country.” — the Atlantic.

Not bad tap dancing for someone who voted for LBJ and who now tells people, like Trump, to stop attacking others. He’s one of the chief attackers in his tactically sly way.

Lindsey Graham, who only knows what can come from the Graham Cracker that was just looking for an “exit ramp”.

“This is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy,” — Graham told the NYT. [CBS]

Michael Reagan:

Marco Rubio:

“It’s offensive — he should stop saying it,. …He’s wrong. The judge is an American.” [CBS]

And to the bigmouth Senate Majority leader, Mitch McConnell: we have been forced to chew on and digest his statement now for 8 years and listen to it used in every issue, by media and Democrats. (it’s gotten more mileage than Mitt Romney’s dog on the roof of his station wagon.)

“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

Thanks for that, Mitch. But how come you did not take to the air and defend that comment and correct the record about it? You let it hang out for everyone else to eat and defend. I’ll pass on the Sen Bob Corker comments, just because.

One more for the road. Pundit SE Cupp took to CNN on Tuesday, condemning Trump, by telling viewers Trump was “Mounting a campaign for white nationalists.

And now the Liberal media widely reports many Republicans are wondering if they can support Trump going forward. ER What a generous group of self-serving politicos.
