Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson is asking the directors of the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives for details on the Hunter Biden gun controversy.
The Secret Service claims they had nothing to do with the incident but Hunter Biden texts suggest otherwise. Hunter wrote, “the police the FBI the Secret Service came on the scene.”
A question has arisen because Hunter Biden lied on his application, saying that he was not a drug addict. There could be other lies on the application but we won’t know that until the application is released.
The main question that must be troubling the GOP Senators is why Hunter Biden was never charged with a gun crime. In light of the fact that Joe Biden plans to ban guns through the use of Executive Orders, it is a fair question to ask.
In a Politico article it is said that Hallie Biden, the widow of Hunter’s dead brother, Beau, with whom he was having an affair, threw his gun into the dump0ster behind a grocery store. She then claimed she went back to reclaim the gun in fear someone would find the gun and use it in the commission of a crime but when she got there the gun was gone, so she called the authorities.
The Secret Service who claims they were not involved, allegedly went to the gun store where Hunter purchased the gun and asked the owner for all of the paperwork for the gun sale.
The owner refused because he was afraid they wanted to cover up for Hunter and could end up leaving him holding the bag should anything go wrong.
The Secret Service denied this week that the agency was involved in the incident, though text messages that came to light on Friday show that Hunter Biden wrote to someone that the FBI and Secret Service showed up to investigate an incident that resembles the one in Delaware.
The New York Post reported Friday that Biden said in a Jan. 29, 2019, text message that Hallie Biden had taken the gun out of his truck lock box and dropped it in a garbage can behind a grocery store.
“She stole the gun out of my trunk lock box and threw it in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens [sic]. Then told me it was my problem to deal with,” Biden wrote, according to the Post.
Republican Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) are asking the directors of the FBI, and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), and the US Secret Service for the details of their so-called “investigation” into a handgun that belonged to Hunter Biden that was reported missing in 2018.
We recently reported that the Secret Service got involved in the case when they had no jurisdiction to do so, and when the Service was not officially protecting anyone in the Biden family.
In their letters, the senators referred to a report from Politico that was published this week about the issue of the missing gun.
According to Politico, on Oct. 23, 2018, Hunter Biden’s dead brother’s wife/girlfriend, Hallie Biden, called Delaware police to report that she had taken Biden’s gun and thrown it into a trash bin outside of a grocery store.
Hallie, who was sleeping with Hunter, said that she went to find the gun after she got worried that someone else might find it and use it in a crime, but when they went to look for it in the trash bin, it was already gone. That’s not bad luck, that’s dumb luck. What are the odds that someone is going to come along and find the gun in a trash bin outside a grocery store?
The FBI arrived at the scene of the investigation, more-than-likely because of who was involved. The ATF eventually showed up, not until after the US Secret Service got themselves involved in the investigation and asked the owner of the gun store that sold the firearm to Biden to let them see the documents Biden filled out, according to Politico.
The owner of the store refused to let the Secret Service see the paperwork of the gun sale, telling them that only the ATF has that purview.
The store owner did allow the ATF to see the transaction record. There was a concern that “the Secret Service agents wanted to hide Hunter’s ownership of the missing gun in case it were to be involved in a crime,” Politico reported.
Incidentally, Politico was able to obtain a copy of the transaction and a receipt from the October 12 purchase. The paperwork showed that Hunter answered “No” to the question on the form that asked, “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”
Nobody was arrested in connection with the incident. However, lying on the form is a felony. No one will do anything about it because he’s the president’s son, and his father isn’t Donald Trump. You know darn right well that had this been Don Jr or Eric Trump, I have charged them with felonies and Democrats would have screamed for prison time.
`The biggest question of all is why did the secret service get involved?
When the cop at the scene asked Hunter if he had called his father about the incident before the cop arrived at the scene, Hunter replied, “I have never called my dad for anything,” according to the police report. You just know the cop asked that question because he wanted to know if Joe Biden sent the Secret Service to cover up the incident.
Earlier in the week, the Secret Service denied that the agency got involved in the case, though text messages that came to light on Friday show that Hunter Biden contacted someone and said that the FBI and Secret Service showed up to investigate an incident which was more-than-likely the one that happened in Delaware. That makes perfect sense because his father was out of the White House as vice president for only two years, so he had to still have contacts there that he could call to cover up the mess.
“US Secret Service records confirm that the agency did not provide protection to any member of the Biden family in 2018 and that the Secret Service had no involvement in this alleged incident,” the Service said in a statement.
“Then when the police the FBI the secret service came on the scene she said she took it from me because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid for the kids,” Biden wrote.
The senators mentioned in the letter to Secret Service Director James Murray that neither Joe Biden nor his son Hunter was under Secret Service protection at the time of the incident.
Then on Friday, the Post reported that Biden said in a January 29, 2019 text message that Hallie Biden had taken the gun out of his truck lockbox and threw it into a trash bin behind a grocery store.
Biden wrote, “She stole the gun out of my trunk lock box and threw it in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens [sic]. Then told me it was my problem to deal with,” according to the Post.
Politico said an anonymous law enforcement official said that Secret Service agents “kept an informal hand in maintaining the former vice president’s security.”
The senators wrote, “If true, USSS must explain to Congress why such informal actions were taken and whether they were necessary in light of the circumstances.”
All around hypocrite Vice President Kamala Harris once berated Brett Kavanaugh as being some sort of sexual predator without an ounce of evidence to support the claims of a clearly troubled woman, and at another time she said that now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached over the completely unfounded accusations against him, and yet she still has not weighed in on the allegations of sexual misconduct against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo from as of this writing six different women who worked for him of sexual misconduct including inappropriate touching, kissing on the lips without consent, and a host of inappropriate statements made to female subordinates.
The New York governor is now facing two separate investigations, one that is getting more attention because of the nature of it is into his behavior around aides by New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office, and an investigation by the US Department of Justice about how his administration hid the true number of nursing home deaths that resulted from his irresponsible decision to force COVID-19 infected patients into nursing homes.
On top of that state, lawmakers are preparing to get underway with the process of impeaching Cuomo. Only one New York governor has ever been impeached. Yeah, it’s that bad.
On Monday, Republican lawmakers in New York introduced a resolution to start impeachment proceedings against Governor Cuomo after he said, “There is no way I resign,” saying that for him to resign before an investigation is complete was “anti-democratic.” Not really, because to resign is not the government forcing him out, it would be his decision, but I digress.
Harris has not yet uttered a word about the allegations against Cuomo, which is completely contrary to how she behaved when Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault by the lying lunatic Christine Blasey Ford.
“I believe her,” the former California senator said when asked about Ford’s allegations back in September 2018. “Anybody who comes forward at this point to be prepared to testify in the U.S. Senate against someone who’s being nominated to one of the most powerful positions in the U.S. government, that takes an extraordinary amount of courage.”
“I believe that the FBI should be compelled to do its job in terms of completing their background investigation and that’s not being done,” she continued. Actually, the FBI did do complete background investigations on Kavanaugh when he was nominated to sit on an appellate court, and they did another investigation after his Supreme Court nomination.
Harris doesn’t care about the sexual misconduct accusations made against Cuomo. She didn’t really care about the sexual misconduct allegations made against Kavanaugh. For her, it was all political. To the radical Left, Kavanaugh was perceived as a wrecking ball to Roe V Wade, the baby-killing law, which was unconstitutionally created by judges, and at the time Harris had aspirations to run for president for a party moving steadily toward radical socialism. Remember, it was only four months later when she announced she was running for president in January 2019.
Harris often sounded off with #MeToo slogans like “All women should be believed” and #BelieveSurvivors hashtags during the Kavanaugh hearings. She also openly offered her support to Ford praising her for her courage.
“Christine Blasey Ford courageously stepped forward to tell her story — it is a credible and serious allegation. The Senate has a constitutional responsibility to scrutinize SCOTUS nominees. A vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination must be delayed until there is a thorough investigation.”
I think it did take a lot of courage for Ford. It took a lot of courage to go before the world and lie about a man who is about to become a member of a very elite group of men and women, especially when you have to say that you cannot remember where what you claimed happened took place, the exact date and time, and knowing you are naming supposed witnesses none of whom remember anything at all you said. And she did this all because she is a radical leftist who thought she was fighting to keep abortion legal.
All this happened and then one year after the Senate Democrats made a complete mockery of the nomination process, the Senate Judiciary Committee found no evidence whatsoever to support the filthy accusations made against Kavanaugh by the vile people in the Democratic Party including our current vice president.
“I sat through those hearings,” Harris tweeted out. “Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.”
I mean it, I think this woman is mentally ill. Not an ounce of evidence could be found to corroborate the allegations. Harris was a former prosecutor who should know better. The then-Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, the Senate Pro Tempore President Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) very publicly took the accusations seriously and went along with extending the hearing to hear Ford’s testimony.
It was Ford who lied to the Senate to the American people when she said she has a fear of flying so she had to take the time to drive across the country from California to Washington, DC, only to find out that she has flown all over the world. It became obvious to most that the drive across the country was nothing more than a political operation, probably requested by the Democrats, to give more time for media trashing of Kavanaugh and allowing the Democrats to hype up their lies about Ford being such a credible witness who couldn’t tell us exactly when her assault happened, where it took place, or any witnesses except her supposed friend who had no idea what the heck she was even talking about.
Now a sixth woman has come out against the New York Governor, and Harris is MIA.
The latest woman to accuse Cuomo of sexual misconduct was a member of the governor’s Executive Chamber staff, who said she was summoned to the governor’s mansion to assist him with a work-related matter. The woman’s supervisors recently became aware of the allegation and alerted the governor’s counsel of it on Monday.
Is Harris silent about the allegations against Cuomo by six professional women because he's a Democrat or is she silent because there's no way for her to use this to her own political advantage? Someone had to ask.
Wednesday night, the GOP lawmakers sent a letter asking Durbin to schedule hearings into the conduct of the Cuomo administration since it has been reported that it intentionally withheld the COVID-19 death numbers from nursing homes after Cuomo forced COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes with the most vulnerable of our society for this pandemic virus, the elderly.
“The American people deserve to know the extent to which Governor Cuomo and his senior staff violated the civil rights of New York seniors, lied to the Department of Justice about their actions, and violated federal civil and criminal laws in the process,” the lawmakers wrote.
“That so many people needlessly lost their lives because of the failed policies of Governor Cuomo’s administration — an administration that many have lauded over the past year — is tragic and deserves a full investigation and accounting.”
Of course, you just know that Durbin and his cohorts in the party are going to use the Cuomo administration’s lie that they did it because President Donald Trump was pressuring them on Twitter.
In the letter sent to Durbin, the senators said they expect Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee, to commit to investigating this growing scandal.
“When Judge Garland testifies before this Committee, we expect him to commit the Department of Justice to fully investigating this cover-up to determine whether any criminal laws were violated and to prosecute any violations,” they wrote. Not that it will ever happen, because while Democrats make things up against Republicans out of thin air, they rarely ever go after one of their own, and the tyrant governor of New York is most definitely one of their own.
Richard Azzopardi, a spokesman for the governor, slimed on about Cruz’s request, “Every death in this pandemic is a tragedy and shame on the Treason Caucus for exploiting them to distract from fermenting the Capitol insurrection that resulted in the death of a police officer.”
Can you believe that? This putz (a little cultural appropriation) tried to dilute the scandal by referring to a fake scandal against Senator Cruz where in the wake of the Capitol riot on January 6, the Democrats have tried to accuse Cruz of helping to incite the riot while he was inside the Capitol building doing exactly what the Democrats did for the last three Republican White House victories. Azzopardi accused Cruz and the other Republicans of doing exactly what he did in the context of his accusation. The Democrats are sick people.
Last week we reported that a Cuomo top aide, Melissa DeRosa, admitted to a bunch of state Democrats lawmakers that they withheld the COVID-19 nursing home death count over the fear that the numbers would be “used against us” by federal authorities. Isn’t that called obstruction? I thought the Democrats really hated obstruction.
This scandal was made public after New York Attorney General Letitia James reported that she discovered that COVID-19 nursing home deaths were 50 percent higher than Cuomo and the administration claimed.
Also on Wednesday Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens) said he received a threatening phone call from Cuomo last week telling the assemblyman that he’d be “destroyed” if he didn’t help contain the situation. Can you imagine?
Kim said he was “in the middle of bathing my kids,” when Cuomo asked him to write up a statement that would say that DeRosa told state lawmakers that they would comply with federal prosecutors.
Folks, that’s manufacturing false evidence, something the Democrats accused Trump of doing, except unlike the former president, Cuomo allegedly actually did if Kim is telling the truth.
Kim said that during the call Cuomo threatened him saying, “You have not seen my wrath. I have been biting my tongue for months.” The assemblyman said Cuomo then told him, “I can tell the whole world what a bad person you are and you will be finished.” Kim said, and concluded that the governor told him, “You will be destroyed.”
This is worse than any of the lies the Democrats made up about Republicans and apparently it’s a real scandal.
Last month, Cruz introduced an amendment to the COVID-19 relief package that called for a Department Of Justice investigation to determine if officials like Cuomo could be criminally or civilly liable for forcing COVID-19 patients into nursing homes. The senator from Texas shouldn’t hold his breath because there is no way, no how that the Biden DOJ will ever hold Democrats accountable for what they did that ended up killing thousands of seniors.
Cuomo made good on his threats. During a press conference on Wednesday, the governor attacked both Assemblyman Kim and the New York Post for having the gall to expose the nursing home scandal.
It now appears that fellow Democrats, who put up with Cuomo’s arrogance for way too long during the COVID-19 crisis, are now turning on him. On Tuesday, nine state Assembly Democrats accused the governor of federal obstruction of justice in a letter that asks that Cuomo’s COVID-19 emergency powers be stripped. Multiple state Senators asked for the same.
I am admittedly a partisan conservative, but I don’t take too much pleasure watching someone have the world come down on them, but in this case, I think it’s completely justified. Andrew Cuomo has been an obnoxious and arrogant tyrant who not only botched his handling of the pandemic for New Yorkers and not only tried to blame everyone else for his and his administration’s negligence over the nursing home debacle, but he actually wrote a book about what an awesome job he did as governor handling the COVID-19 pandemic.
But, absolutely nothing will happen on the federal level as we now know that President Biden chose not to discuss the scandal during his White House meeting with the governor on Friday, saying “it was not a focus of their conversation or a topic.”
For those of you reading this who are admitted leftists I want you to do something for me. I want you to close your eyes, take some deep, slow breaths, and once your mind has been cleared of everything, think to yourself, what if it was Donald Trump.
The freshman Congresswoman from Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene, summed up the Democrats’ impeachment sham in a single tweet.
“This impeachment trial a circus for the Democrat media mob to entertain the masses that they have brainwashed and addicted to hate, so they don’t see the Dem policies being rapidly forced into place that are destroying our lives, stealing our freedoms, and putting America last.”
She hits it right on the head. Joe Biden has been signing executive orders primarily based on no underlying powers and most of them are harming millions of Americans and turning their lives upside down without a care in the world for their welfare, and all while the Democrats in Congress are running bread and circuses games with President Donald Trump’s second impeachment. Don’t look at what we’re doing over here, get angry at what Biden is doing over there.
This Congresswoman is no stranger to controversy, but the things that she says are only controversies because the Woke Supremacy mob makes them so by trying to silence people who want to talk about what the Democrats are doing. On her first day in office as a freshman member of Congress, Greene wore a face mask on the House floor that had the words inscribed on it “Trump Won,” while the entire Woke Supremamcy was telling us he lost in a free and fair election to Joe Biden. Of course, nobody believes that but Supremacy member tech giants and Fake News Media and others have done a lot of gaslighting to not only convince you but to silence you and even punish you if you don’t subscribe to their will. Among other things, Greene objected to the counting of Michigan’s Elector votes, because of a massive amount of irregularities that took place in the state during and after the 2020 election. Because her objection was not signed by at least one sitting senator her objection was rendered invalid.
The media mob went on to act like what Greene did was horrendous and unprecedented even though Democrats have done the exact same thing, and far worse to Donald Trump for four years straight, but they have made the same objections to the last three Republican White House victories.
Greene called for an end to the violence during the Capitol riot and to support Trump. She didn’t wear a face mask while being sheltered during the riot, and during the debate to impeach President Trump Greene tweeted, “Democrats must be held accountable for the political violence inspired by their rhetoric.” This prompted Democratic representative Jason Crow (D-Colo.) to call her “morally bankrupt”, “depraved” and “frankly dangerous”. Yet, Greene was and still is exactly right.
Democrats want you to forget about inciting speeches they gave whether it came from Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) who told supporters, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up, and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere…. Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are, to let you know you can’t get away with this.” She went on to tell them to go after Trump officials’ homes with chants of “no peace, no sleep” telling them to go to their houses and keep them up all night.
Or Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) who asked DC visitors before they leave the city to go up to Capitol Hill and get in the faces of some politicians, saying “Before I end, that’s my call to action here. Please don’t just come here today and then go home,” Booker said. “Go to the Hill today. Get up and please get up in the face of some congresspeople.”
Or a large number of Democrats calling now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh a serial rapist, or what about the time Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatened Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh publicly, or how about when the Democrats stormed the Senate and took over the Senate Pro Tempore Senator Chuck Grassley’s (R-IA) office?
The Woke Supremacy wants you to forget about all of that, but to believe that President Trump’s words “peacefully and patriotically” were words that incited a riot. It’s intolerable to have to listen to them, but Marjorie Taylor Greene is the bad guy for pointing it out.
On January 21, the day after he was inaugurated Greene also filed articles of impeachment against Joe Biden for abuse of power, telling Newsmax’s Greg Kelly Biden is “willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, [and] Ukrainian energy companies.” Again, the Democrats act like this was unprecedented even though the Washington Post published a story with the headline, “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun” just 19 minutes after Trump was inaugurated. Again, we’re supposed to forget all of this.
Greene is the kind of Republican that we need right now, one who isn’t afraid to stand up to the onslaught of lies against Republicans and conservatives that are repeated by every division of the Woke Supremacy. The only way to defeat these progressives is to never give up. To keep hammering away at the truth regardless of how many times they lie. I propose a counterargument that if you repeat the truth enough times the people will start to believe it. That’s what we need to do now, keep repeating the truth in whatever free speech spaces you can find. Never give up.
What they’re doing is trying to demoralize conservatives and Trump supporters. The only way that Marxists will win is if you accept as fact that you are demoralized and defeated. They cannot win so long as you don’t believe that, because they don’t have the facts on their side and we do. With people like Greene in office being vocal against the Woke Supremacy and their craziness Trump supporters and conservatives will never be moralized or feel defeated.
Last week we reported when Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told the members of the Senate that the impeachment trial they are going to hold against Donald Trump was unconstitutional because impeachment is to remove a president from office and Donald Trump has already left office and he is a private citizen. Nevertheless, the Democrats are hell-bent on trying private citizen Trump, not because of the main punishment which is to remove a president from office, but for one of the optional punishments put in there as an add-on that the convicted can no longer run for office. And they are accusing trump of inciting violence that erupted into a riot at the Capitol on January 6. Senator Paul pointed out that there was no such language of incitement found in Trump’s speech. In fact, he pointed out that the president said that they were going to march “peacefully and patriotically” to let their voices be heard. But none of that is getting in the way of the walk supremacy agenda.
Can they deny that President Trump’s speech was not inciteful? Maybe dictionary.com will help them out and change the definition to incitement? Who knows, because the Woke website has done so for the Supremacy in the recent past.
The senator from Kentucky then went on to remind his Democrat colleagues that elected Democratic officials told their supporters to attack Republicans. If Trump is to be impeached for asking his followers to peacefully and patriotically make their voices be heard by members of Congress then what do we do the Democrats speech that is far more incendiary rhetoric and actions?
He mentioned when a supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) drove to a baseball field in DC where Republicans were practicing for a game and started shooting with the intention of killing as many Republicans as he could and came very close to killing Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA). What drove this raging left-wing lunatic to attempted murder were the words of Senator Sanders who told his constituents that the Republicans were trying to take away their health care. Yeah, it was a lie, but Sanders caucuses with the Democrats so it was no big deal, right?
Paul also mentioned Kamala Harris, who is now the Vice Thief-in-Chief, but when he was a US senator from California she took to social media to solicit funds for a company that was bailing out criminal rioters who looted and burned Minneapolis businesses and caused all kinds of mayhem and havoc in the city so that they could get back out onto the streets again. She did it under the guise of pretending that the people who were being bailed out were peaceful protesters even though peaceful protesters were not the targets for arrest because peaceful protesters have the right to do that. The people Kamala was rooting for were criminals who were rioting or looting or assaulting people and setting businesses on fire. The company that Harris helped boost their donations to the highest ever achieved, the Minnesota Freedom Fund, is now refusing to share their records of who they actually helped get back on the streets of Minneapolis. The bail organization got a reported cash dump in the tens of millions of dollars thanks to Harris’ support. Previously they only took in about $100,000 according to their tax returns.
Then, Senator Paul reminded us off when Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) told Democrats to look for Republicans who serve in the Trump administration – but let’s face it, she meant all Republicans – and if they see them at a department store, or a restaurant or a gasoline station they were to “create a crowd” and to “push back” and to tell them that they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Can the Democrats really tell us that Waters’ words were not inciteful speech? Moreso than anything Trump said at the rally on January 6. She told Democrats to go to Republican’s houses and harass them!
Paul pointed out that Senator Cory Booker said in a speech to supporters to “Please don’t just come here today and then go home. Go to the Hill today. Get up and, please, get up in the face of some congresspeople.”
Can the Democrats honestly tell us that Booker’s words were not inciteful?
Barack Obama as president once told an audience of they were going to punish their enemies [the Republicans] and reward our friends [the Democrats].
And then there was the time that justice Alito of the United States Supreme Court had to respond to the now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who threatened two sitting Supreme Court justices, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, in a very insightful speech with a bunch of people around him.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Can the Democrats really tell us that Schumer’s speech was not inciteful? He violently threatened two justices.
And in the true form of the Left, though radical Woked Supremacist Laurence Tribe denounced Schumer’s speech, and even left-wing Justice John Roberts said, “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous,” and the threats brought then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell out of his hole to call the remarks “astonishingly reckless and completely irresponsible.”
Schumer went on television news to say that he wasn’t trying to be inciteful, even though a person with a double-digit IQ knows what he said was violent, Senator Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) attempt to get Schumer censured fall flat.
Don’t forget how the Woke mob on the Left almost a year and a half before Schumer’s violent threats against two justices, stormed the Capitol after Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the High Court. They forcefully took over Senator Chuck Grassley’s (R-IA) office. Grassley was the Senate President Pro Tempore at the time. Remember when Democrats invited rabble-rousers into the confirmation hearing room to shout and scream and try to stop the hearing? I don’t remember Democrats or Fake News outlets calling for the arrest of the mob that stormed the Senate building or those who tried to stop the confirmation process, do you?
The Woke Supremacy is arguing that even though Trump asked for a peaceful protest, something even they cannot deny because it’s on film, they say that the former president exercising his Constitutional right to not concede the 2020 election because there was a massive amount of evidence that election fraud took place was incitement that caused the riot. They are either dumb or mentally ill. For Democrats, rules apply to them when they are favorable but only to Republicans when they are not.
So, then how are we supposed to believe in equal justice when the Majority Leader of the is going after private citizen Donald Trump for something he did not do after Schumer spent years trash-talking Constitutionalist justices on the Supreme Court that culminated in violent incitement from the Majority Leader?
Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) and other Republicans are angry about a sentence of probation that carries no prison time for ex-FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith after he pleaded guilty to doctoring a CIA email during the FBI’s attempts at surveillance against former Trump campaign associate Carter Page. Page worked for the CIA, and that information was removed from the document. Had that information not been altered the whole Russia collusion hoax would have died right there. The millions of dollars spent on the collusion delusion hoax and putting the administration and the entire country through a Constitutional crisis would never have happened, but the court gave Clinesmith probation.
When he was Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Nunes brought to light a whole lot of problems with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) system that went on during the Trump-Russia investigation. Nunes said of the sentence, “Once again, we see a two-tiered system of justice where average Americans get investigated and imprisoned based on fake media narratives like ‘Russian collusion’ while government officials who perpetuated these abuses get off scot-free.” Of the reputation of the entire Justice Department in the aftermath of what the Obama DOJ did Nunes said, “The FBI, DOJ, and judicial system need to regain Americans’ trust, and this absurd sentencing won’t help.”
Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, an Obama appointee of course, also serves on the FISA court, and he shot down the Justice Department’s request for up to six months behind bars. The judge gave Clinesmith probation with 400 hours of community service within a year and there will be no fine. It was a slap on the wrist and now the American taxpayers are going to pay the millions it cost to do the hoax investigation.
Clinesmith not only worked on the nine-month-long FBI investigation into Russian collusion, which we now know was started by Hillary Clinton in an effort to get her illegal private email server off the front pages of the news, the fired and disgraced former FBI lawyer also worked on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and he acknowledged to special counsel John Durham’s team that he falsified a document when fired and disgraced former FBI director James Comey’s FBI tried to renew a FISA warrant against Page, a volunteer campaign adviser to the Trump campaign.
Clinesmith edited a CIA email by removing information that showed Carter Page was working for the CIA, he was a good guy who was asked by the CIA to gather information on his business trips to Russia and he did every time they asked because he’s a patriot. Clinesmith removed that information to make it appear that Page was doing something nefarious. Page denied doing anything wrong since the beginning and he was never charged with a crime.
“Mr. Clinesmith lost his job, and his government service is what has given his life much of its meaning. He was also earning $150,000 a year — and who knows where the earnings go now. He may be disbarred or suspended from the practice of law … and may never be able to work in the national security field again,” Boasberg said when explaining his decision. “These are substantial penalties… What is more, he went from being an obscure career government lawyer to standing in the eye of a media hurricane. He has been threatened, vilified, and abused on a nationwide scale.”
The judge left out that Clinesmith did all of that to himself. It’s not like he was a victim here. He victimized an awful lot of people.
More Republicans lashed out when they heard of the weak sentence given out to Clinesmith.
“This sentence is absolutely despicable,” said Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) took to social media and tweeted, “Very rare that dept of “JUST US” wld recommend jail time 4 one of their own But they did 4 Clinesmith former FBI attorney who falsified paperwork 2spy on Trump campaign+prop up phony collusion probe+violate civil liberties of Carter Page Outrageous DC judge gave NO prison time”
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, “This punishment trivializes what I believe to be a stunning breach of duty to the Court and to the American people”
Assistant US Attorney Anthony Scarpelli who works on the Durham team said to the court on Friday, “The defendant’s criminal conduct tarnished and undermined the integrity of the FISA program” adding “it has lasting effects on DOJ, the FBI, the FISC, the FISA process, and trust and confidence United States citizens have in their government.”
That trust is gone, and this sentence was like the final nail in the coffin. Democrats never cared what the American people think and feel about government so long as they are in charge.
Clinesmith had the audacity to label what he did as a shortcut that had no malicious intent.
”I am fully aware of the significance of my actions and the crucial error in judgment I made,” Clinesmith declared to the Obama judge just before his sentence was announced. “I let the FBI, the Department of Justice, my colleagues, the public, and my family down. I also let myself down. I will live with the consequences and deeply-held feeling of regret, shame, and loss caused by it for the rest of my life.” All things his lawyers prepped him to say. I allege he would have done it again if he wasn’t caught. I think there should be an investigation into all of the cases he worked on to see if he did “shortcuts” like this elsewhere during his career.
Two Republican-controlled Senate committees have released new information on Hunter Biden and his indirect ties to the Chinese communist regime.
The release includes documents and emails provided by Biden family business associate Tony Bobulinski, who is cooperating with the Senate and the FBI.
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) have made those documents available publicly.
They show that Hunter was still transacting business in the field of energy with Ye Jianming, who has close ties to the Chinese government and their military.
The report says in part:
“These new records confirm the connections between the Biden family and the communist Chinese government, as well as the links between Hunter Biden’s business associates and the Russian government, and further support the Committees’ September 23, 2020 report’s finding that such relationships created counterintelligence and extortion concerns.”
The committee’s evidence shows that Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski and businessman Rob Walker, who is close to the Biden family were trying to help China close energy deals in Oman, France and Russia. Ye was sending millions to Hunter affiliated businesses. These dealings pose a national security risk where blackmail could be used against Joe Biden if he is elected president.
The report further states:
“In 2017, during the time that Ye’s companies were sending millions of dollars to Hunter Biden associated companies, Ye had business dealings with Kremlin-controlled companies and Kremlin-aligned businessmen. In effect, Ye appears to have been China’s unofficial bridge to Russia on energy. As noted in the Committees’ September 23, 2020 report, in September 2017, CEFC announced its intention to purchase a 14.2 percent stake in the Russian state-owned energy company, Rosneft, for approximately $9 billion.”
“In an October 2017 message exchange produced to the Committees by Bobulinski, Hunter Biden told Bobulinski that although he ‘stayed out of that Russian mess,’ he ‘discussed the Roseneft [sic] deal’ with Ye personally and was familiar with the deal, including the fact that Ye was ‘pissed off by the execution. In the same exchange, Biden explained that he spoke to Ye on a ‘regular basis,’ they have a ‘standing once a week call,’ was the ‘first guest in his new apartment,’ ‘he cooked me lunch himself and we ate in the kitchen together,’ and was helping Ye ‘on a number of his personal issues (staff visas and some more sensitive things).'”
“Our report obviously raised serious questions and broke a logjam of information, and now we have whistleblowers coming forward with new information showing even more troubling ties back to the Chines government, Russia’s Rosneft and possibly the People’s Liberation Army. These are the people that Hunter Biden associated with and Joe Biden knew full well his family was engaged with.”
Something tells me we haven’t heard the last of this. The question remains is whether the Chinese government uses material they have to blackmail Biden or whether the progressives use this to depose Biden and replace him with radical extremist Kamala Harris. Either one would be a disaster for this country.
Two GOP Senators, Chuck Grassley, and John Cornyn are signaling that they are open to passing an immigration bill that could grant amnesty to between 11 and 22 million illegals, making them all eligible for government giveaways.
It would also assure Democratic presidents for as far as the eye can see.
The Hill reports:
“I think that would be a good thing to do,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said about the potential to do immigration next year. [Emphasis added]
“The challenge is you’ve got to get the votes, but that to me is one of my biggest disappointments in my time in the Senate, our inability to get that done,” Cornyn said, adding that he would “try to be part of that effort” if the topic comes back up. [Emphasis added]
Grassley said an agreement would have to lie in the middle of the Democrat’s open border policy and Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration.
What middle ground? Either you grant amnesty or you don’t.
The Democrats want to legalize all illegal aliens and to make up for it they would be willing to deport the 71 million who voted for Trump.
“It’s kind of a case of the extreme points of view — like people who think we can load up 12 million people and get them out of the country; if they want to do that, they can’t be a part of it. And for the people who want people to be citizens yesterday, they can’t be a part of it.”
So, do we start allowing bank robbers to keep the money they steal? When did we start rewarding people for breaking our laws? And once we start, where does it end? Are you aware that Social Security considers not speaking English to be a disability? Our SWS fund could be depleted in just a couple of years.
Days after the November 3 presidential election, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was met with sharp criticism from immigration reform organizations and grassroots conservatives for suggesting that the GOP could reach a “common ground” with Biden on some form of amnesty.
Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson called out Graham in a segment, saying that the newly reelected senator “would be happy to sell out his voters with an amnesty deal, like within hours of the election.”
Currently, there about 24.5 million Americans are either jobless or underemployed but all want full-time jobs. Those unemployed are forced to compete in the labor market by an endless stream of foreign workers who secure visas and green cards which rack up to more than 2.5 million admissions every year.
Exit polling that took place during the November 3rd election found that 75% of voters favored less immigration. Republicans are standing in line to oppose their base.
