Washington DC is going under a massive transformation since the Inurugation of Democrat Joe Biden. The Republican party is beginning to embrace that President Donald J. Trump is the people’s leader, and the people want Trump to lead the Grand Old Party in the future. The shift in focus from squishy leftist to Populist Conservative leaves career politicians looking for new digs with an unfavorable “Uniparty.”
“Dozens of Republicans in former President George W. Bush’s administration are leaving the party, dismayed by a failure of many elected Republicans to disown Donald Trump,” Reuters reported on Monday.
The Establishment is not happy.
“These officials, some who served in the highest echelons of the Bush administration, said they had hoped that a Trump defeat would lead party leaders to move on from the former president and denounce his baseless claims that the November presidential election was stolen,” Reuters wrote, proving that many civil servants sill answer to their voters who do support Trump and want answers about the extraordinary November election.
“But with most Republican lawmakers sticking to Trump, these officials say they no longer recognize the party they served. Some have ended their membership; others are letting it lapse while a few are newly registered as independents, according to a dozen former Bush officials who spoke with Reuters.”
It is no surprise that the squishy, haughty leftist Republicans, who the American people do not care about, are leaving the GOP over the massive public support for President Donald J. Trump.
Trump is everything the Tea Party movement said they wanted. Trump’s policies and agenda for America is the great equalizer between the working American and the elite political class.
Former President George Bush Jr. was never all that exciting for Conservative Republican voters because he was always viewed as a squishy shadow of his father, a failed, and George Bush Sr. was an unpopular one-term President.
Conservatives at their time “held their noses” and voted for Bush Jr., who immediately was faced with 911 attacks, and so the country got behind him and supported him for the most part, out of a sense of duty to the nation.
But Bush was never popular; in fact, before his second term, Karl Rove had town halls around the country to beg and plead for people’s support, claiming the Bush administration would finally represent Conservatives with just one more term.
Bush got the votes, and betrayed the voters, and never looked back.
Bush Jr. spent his second term licking the boots of the people who were trashing him in the media, an utter submissive humiliation, opening the door for leftists to infiltrate public institutions, such as the public takeover schools.
In fact, Obama’s first term was really Bush Jr.’s second term. Bush lied to the public, and now his cronies are sad about Trump.
Reuters goes on:
“More than half of the Republicans in Congress – eight senators and 139 House representatives – voted to block certification of the election just hours after the Capitol siege.
Most Republican Senators have also indicated they would not support Trump’s impeachment, making it almost certain that the former president won’t be convicted in his Senate trial. Trump was impeached on Jan. 13 by the Democratic-led House of Representatives on charges of “incitement of insurrection,” the only president to be impeached twice.
The unwillingness by party leaders to disavow Trump was the final straw for some former Republican officials.”
So Trump has been successful so far in draining the GOP Swamp. We really may have won more than was at first evident to us.
CORRECTION: Joe Biden was speaking with George Lopez during the interview, and it is possible he could have been referring to George Lopez.
You decide for yourself.
What started out as a LID placed on the Biden campaign for all day Sunday, ended up a disaster for Lying Joe participated in a virtual event 9 days from Election Day.
Showing Joe’s loss of the details, Biden appears, to some viewers, to confuse President Trump with someone names George. Some people think that he may have confused Trump with former President George Bush.
“…What kind of country we’re gonna be. Four more years of George…uh George uh he uh is gonna find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected we’re gonna uh we’re gonna be in a different world,” said Biden.
Joe’s wife/caretaker Jill appears to nervously whisper “Trump” trying to aid the mentally fading presidential candidate appearing to struggle to remember President Trumps’ name.
Also in todays debacles, Biden was caught in another apparent lie, getting fact checked in real time.
As gently as possible and providing a little cover for Joe during their interview on 60 minutes, the interviewer implied that maybe Joe’s team has a different formula than what they used to fact check him.
Since math is verifiable, CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell included the fact-check correcting Joe Biden’s claims on the trade deficit with China: “lower in 2019 than it was during the last three years of the Obama administration”
My guess is, with more emails exposing Hunter’s criminal and moral failures expected to drop tomorrow, and needing to recover from tonight, that Joe will hide under his LID tomorrow, not coming out until sometime Tuesday.
Former President Donald Trump spoke about what he wrote in the letter he left to President Joe Biden when he left office in January. The Democrats and Fake News media, but I repeat myself, derogatorily said Trump wouldn’t write a letter which has been a tradition when transferring power, but like just about everything else they ever said about the 45th president it was a lie. They had absolutely no evidence to enable them to make such a statement.
“Basically, I wished him luck and, you know, it was a couple of pages long and it was from the heart because I want to see him do well,” Trump said to Lisa Boothe during an interview on a podcast on Monday when he described the letter he left for the man that 74 million American voters believe stole the election from him.
The former president continued saying, “I want him to do well, but that doesn’t include closing up the Keystone Pipeline, which by the way environmentally is much better than having [crude oil] on trains. But [Biden’s] friend and supporter Warren Buffett has trains. Nobody ever talks about that.”
What the former president was saying was that Joe Biden in order to appease the environmentalist wacko anti-oil Woke Supremacy shut down the Keystone Pipeline via executive order and they believe that it’s an enormous victory. They were dancing in the streets. But the truth of the matter is that the oil is coming anyway and now instead of efficiently and safely being delivered through a pipeline that oil will now being transported through Mac trucks and trains and that puts the environment at more of a risk of danger than coming in through a pipeline. It will also raise the cost of the oil to pay for the transportation when delivery via pipeline would have been practically free in comparison. And that translates to among other things higher gasoline prices at the pump. Way to go, Wokers!
Biden never said what was written by the former president in the letter that the Fake News said he would never write, only that it was “very generous.” In my opinion, anything other than “you stole the election from me, you thief,” is a win for Biden.
Outgoing presidents in a recent tradition have left a letter for the incoming president. That was started by President Ronald Reagan when he left a letter for incoming president George H W Bush on the Resolute Desk.
Outgoing President Barack Obama left a letter for incoming President Donald Trump, part of which said:
“This is a unique office, without a clear blueprint for success, so I don’t know that any advice from me will be particularly helpful … American leadership in this world really is indispensable. It’s up to us, through action and example, to sustain the international order that’s expanded steadily since the end of the Cold War, and upon which our own wealth and safety depend.”
Outgoing President George W Bush left a letter for incoming President Barack Obama:
“Very few have had the honor of knowing the responsibility you now feel. Very few know the excitement of the moment and the challenges you will face … There will be trying moments. The critics will rage. Your ‘friends’ will disappoint you. But, you will have an Almighty God to comfort you, a family who loves you, and a country that is pulling for you, including me. No matter what comes, you will be inspired by the character and compassion of the people you now lead.”
After the tech tyrants at Twitter did the unimaginable and treated President Trump like a dog while he was still in office by censoring him with false labels of “misinformation” and then removing tweets and videos he posted to eventually kicking him off the platform, the former president told Boothe during the interview that he really doesn’t miss the platform at all. He used it to get his message out, at first bypassing the Fake News media’s filtering of everything Republicans say to speak directly to the people. Now out of office, he doesn’t need it. No other president was treated so disrespectfully.
“I put out a statement, it’s much more elegant than a tweet and I think it’s picked up better. I would almost say better than Twitter,” referring to the 280 character limit of Twitter per tweet. Now, the former president can send out messages to his own liking without worrying about having his message twisted.
Late last week a photojournalist with a major very-well-known international image subscription service said that every president has allowed him to photograph US Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) operations going on at the US-Mexico border operations except for Democrat President Joe Biden. So why do you think that is?
The claims made by John Moore, a Getty Images Special Correspondent, come as a bipartisan group of senators now demand that Biden allow the news media to see the crisis that Biden himself has created with no end in sight.
Moore took to social media to air his complaint to the government for the entire world to witness. A guy who went by the name of Thomas Jefferson did the same thing once when he wrote the Declaration of Independence, where he was telling the world what the British government did to them. I’m not comparing Moore to Jefferson, but it is a gutsy move on Moore’s part just the same.
But at the same time, we have to recognize that a media blackout was self-imposed against former President Donald Trump during the 2020 election where the media simply refused to report any news whatsoever on election fraud allegations other than to claim they were false where there were mountains of evidence presented at a number of state legislature hearings after the Big Steal. And think about this. After the peaceful protest turned riot on January 6 at our nation’s Capitol Trump made many social media posts, including two videos, asking for calm and asking protesters and rioters to respect law enforcement and he even asking them to go home, but the same media who are now complaining about not being given access to news refused to publish either Trump’s pleas for peace or report that the social media tech giants censored him by removing all of his posts including the two videos.
“I respectfully ask US Customs and Border Protection to stop blocking media access to their border operations. I have photographed CBP under Bush, Obama and Trump but now – zero access is granted to media. These long lens images taken from the Mexican side. @CBP #gettyimagesnews“
CBP was established under the George W Bush administration in 2003.
“There’s no modern precedent for a full physical ban on media access to CBP border operations. To those who might say, cut them some slack – they are dealing with a situation, I’d say that showing the US response to the current immigrant surge is exactly the media’s role.”
“Photographing Border Patrol agents and immigrant encounters can and has been done respectfully without interfering with operations. Regardless, @cbp public affairs exists to work with media,” he continued.
“And Pandemic restrictions are not a valid excuse to block physical media access, especially to operations that are outside. There are easy alternative options to media ride-alongs.”
“Showing the difficult and important work of @cbp agents in the field, while also photographing immigrants in a dignified way are not mutually exclusive endeavors. Transparency is key, even in a politicized environment.”
“The photographs in this tweet string were taken with a telephoto lens from across the border in Mexico. Until now, US photojournalists haven’t needed to stand in another country to photograph what’s happening – in the United States.”
“The vast majority of river crossings by asylum seekers happen on federal land in south Texas’ Rio Grande Valley. The federal govt. controls access to those areas,” he concluded. “The Border Patrol has been removing journalists who enter, including recently myself, CBS, others.”
Last week several reporters excoriated White House Press puppet Jen Psaki over the lack of media access the Biden administration is offering to the press. One of the reporters reminded Psaki of one of the things Joe Biden said, that if elected his administration would “be the most truthful and transparent administration.” It has been anything but truthful or transparent.
During a press briefing, one reporter cited that it was three weeks since someone first asked Psaki about access for journalists inside the southern border facilities, “Why are we still not seeing any images inside these facilities?”
“The DHS oversees the Border Patrol facilities, and we want to work with them to ensure we can do respecting the privacy and obviously the health protocols required by COVID,” the press secretary replied.
What health protocols? The Biden administration isn’t testing the “unregistered Democrats” for COVID as they walk across our border.
Biden DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said during an interview last week that if “loving parents” send their child alone to the US-Mexico border, the Biden administration will not only not expel the child, but will also “care for” the child.
Maybe it’s statements like that which caused former President Donald Trump to point out that Mayorkas is incompetent at his job.
“He’s incompetent and just mark my words, take a look at what’s going to happen over the next fairly long period of time because they might not be capable of stopping it,” Trump said in an interview with Newsmax.
Trump continued, “You take a look even now you take a look at the thousands of people that are pouring up from South America, Latin America, pouring up into our country, and they don’t even stop them, they just let them walk right in. They’ve totally lost control of the southern border. We had it under total control.”
The Biden administration won’t even admit that what’s going on at the southern border is a crisis, having Psaki refer to the overwhelming chaos there as a “circumstance.”
A favorite mantra (or is it a chant?) of liberals is that tax cuts cause deficits and are evil and tax increases are noble, virtuous, and pure. Both notions are a bunch of gobbledygook hogwash.
The Biden administration fresh off the $1.9 trillion non-relief COVID relief package is about to hike taxes to pay for a round of infrastructure and wasteful climate change spending.
Biden’s White House has said tax increases are definitely on the table and they claim they are targeting wealthy individuals and corporations to pay more.
“His priority and focus has always been on people paying their fair share and also focusing on corporations that may not be paying their fair share, either,” White House press secretary “One time, at band camp girl,” Jen Psaki said. “So that remains his overarching approach, but there isn’t a package yet where we’re talking about pay-fors yet.”
Biden and his people are as annoyingly obtuse. Did they not see the numbers under Trump?
Here’s the thing. Numbers do not lie unless manipulated by liars. It can be proven by real numbers that tax increases always lower government revenues while tax cuts always increase government revenues. It’s counterintuitive, but it is true. The Democrats know this, but they hike taxes anyway because it allows them to virtue signal to the great unwashed that they are sticking it to the rich and they use the tax code to control people’s behaviors as good little dictators tend to do.
First off, this notion that the rich need to “pay their fair share” I consider an evil manipulation because according to IRS data the wealthiest wage earners already pay their fair share and then some. The latest numbers provided by the IRS show the top 1 percent of wage earners paid 37.2 percent of the entire federal income tax burden. The top 5 percent of wage earners paid 58.23 percent, over half of the entire federal income tax burden. The top 10 percent of wage earners paid 69.47 percent and the top 50 percent of wage earners paid 96.96 percent of the federal income tax burden. That leaves the bottom 50 percent of wage earners paying only 3.04 percent, and they are the ones who use most of the government services paid for by the rest of us. So now you know that the next time a Democrat says they want the rich to pay their fair share you know they are lying to you because when 5 percent of any group pays almost 70 percent of the costs they are absolutely paying their fair share.
Joe Biden is saying that he wants to raise taxes only on people earning $400,000 a year or more, those evil rich, greedy ba$tard$, right?
Looking at it another way, people who earn $400,000 a year are mostly small business owners who were hit very hard economically in 2020 with lockdowns as designed by Democrats to take away a major funding source for Republican candidates. It’s known that Republicans dominate in campaign donations from small businesses because they support small businesses while Democrats attack them with taxes and regulations out the wazoo. I have no idea where the wazoo is, but I hear that taxes and regulations pour from it like an out-of-control fire hydrant as far as small businesses are concerned.
Biden campaigned on increasing the corporate tax from 21 percent to 28 percent and the individual rate from 37 percent to 39.6 percent. On top of that, he wants to raise the capital gains tax rate on people who earn more than a million dollars a year. And trust me, eventually, those tax increases will hit you, the great unwashed as the virtue signaling done now is just to get you used to tax rates being increased.
Here’s the thing. Biden and the Democrats in Congress are trying to convince you that raising taxes will help them generate more revenue to pay for all of the things that you are probably never going to benefit from anyway, but it’s a total lie. If the government needs to raise its revenue the best way to do that is by cutting taxes. Cutting taxes has worked every single time it has been tried. Okay, so when was it tried you ask?
Calvin Coolidge in his inaugural address said the following:
“The collection of any taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. Under this republic the rewards of industry belong to those who earn them. The only constitutional tax is the tax which ministers to public necessity. The property of the country belongs to the people of the country. Their title is absolute.”
Sounds a lot like Trump doesn’t it?
Anyway, Coolidge got tax rates lowered from 77 percent eventually to 25 percent lower than Reagan’s 28 percent. Lowering tax rates started under his boss President William Harding until his death when Coolidge became president.
The net effect of lower taxes created an economic boom the likes of which hadn’t been seen before. In fact, our economy became so strong they nicknamed the time period “The Roaring Twenties.” Along with the roaring economy, government revenues increased every year.
By the time Coolidge left office, the national debt was lowered to $16.9 billion in 1929 from $22.3 billion in 1923, and the Federal Budget was reduced to $3.3 billion in 1929 from $5.1 billion in 1921.
Okay, but that was just an outlier, right? Wrong.
The next President to lower taxes to great results was JFK. And he was a Democrat.
In January 1963, President Kennedy presented Congress with a tax proposal to reduce the top marginal tax rate from 91 percent to 65 percent and to cut the corporate tax rate from 52 percent to 47 percent. Kennedy was assassinated before Congress voted on his budget. Out of respect for his death, Congress voted nearly unanimously for the bill. Even Soviet-loving Marxists like Ted Kennedy, Howard Metzenbaum and Al Gore voted for it. And the result was the economic boom that followed and government revenues increased.
President Ronald Reagan lowered tax rates from 70 percent to 28 percent. Federal revenues under the new rates sadly went down. No, I’m just kidding. Government revenues more than doubled going from $500 billion in 1980 to $1.2 trillion by 1990, about 50 percent higher when you account for inflation.
The examples don’t stop there.
When President George W Bush cut taxes it created the largest economic expansion ever. Sadly, his economy went south after the 30+ year Democrat-created Housing Market scam finally crashed the economy, but the tax cuts increased government revenues.
The same happened under President Donald Trump when he cut tax rates giving us the largest economic expansion and the greatest economy we ever saw. Government revenues again went up.
How is this so? To the average dopey liberal this doesn’t make sense. You lower the tax rates and the government gets more money?
It’s very easy to understand and it all goes back to screwing the rich. When the government raises taxes rich people who understand money will find other ways of either investing to earn money or hiding it until better times. For example, when taxes are at 70 percent while Democrats are salivating at the screw job they’re doing to America, a wealthy person sees it as he has to give the government 70 cents on every dollar he earns and only gets to keep 30 cents. To the wealthy guy that’s not worth the efforts of starting and running a business. Why go to the trouble of starting a business when the government is going to steal well over half of what you make? Instead, he’ll invest his money into something like tax-free municipal bonds like the Kennedys do until better tax rates come along. When the rich guy isn’t investing his money into a business that means there are no new jobs for employees who would be hired to help run the business. No job means no income tax revenue for the government.
But, if the rates were reversed and the wealthy guy gets to keep 70 cents for every dollar he earns and only has to pay 30 cents to the government he’s going to see that as an opportunity to invest his money to start a new business. His business may be such a big idea that he can’t run it all by himself, so he hires employees to work there. Every new employee earning a paycheck will now pay income taxes on his earnings and government revenues go up because of it.
“BUT THE DEFICITS!” scream the liberals. Tax cuts do not cause deficits. In fact, tax cuts have nothing to do with deficits. Websters defines a deficit as spending more than you earn. We’ve already seen that tax cuts counterintuitively increase government revenues, so when deficits arise during times of private sector economic prosperity by cutting taxes it’s because the swamp rats in DC outspent even the rising revenues. Think about it this way. If you have a box and you place a dollar inside that box, that’s called saving. If someone comes along who sells candy bars and you ask the guy how much for one and he says $1. You open up your box and take out the dollar that you put in there and you give it to the guy who then hands you the candy bar. That’s called spending. But what if you didn’t put the dollar in the box? When the guy comes by with candy bars you have nothing in the box to buy any candy. Did not having the dollar in the box affect spending in any way? Of course not, because you didn’t spend anything. The problem is we have the most thieving people in the world running the country now and what they would do is buy a thousand candy bars with only $1 in the box and tell the guy they pay for the other candy bars later. That created a deficit of $999.00 because they spent more than what they had in the box. Democrats and liberals do not understand this very simple example.
That phenomenon of tax cuts causing government revenues to go up also has the added benefit of the private sector growing and expanding and that causes the unemployment rate to drop and pretty much everything gets better for the American worker and the American family. Conservatives like Trump understand this and they make it a priority to help the American working class. Democrats on the other hand either do not understand this common-sense thinking of the economy or they do but would much rather prioritize government control over the people instead of helping the American working class do better for themselves. Joe Biden has chosen government control over helping the American working class.
Andrew Cuomo is a guy that only Woke Supremacists could love. He’s an arrogant incompetent with power, power he obtained through the name recognition of his father. This was the same man who as the HUD secretary for the Bill Clinton administration responded to bank presidents who complained and warned of economic disaster over the administration forcing banks to make knowingly risky mortgages to people the industry’s application process deemed not able to pay the loans back by telling them to put the bad mortgage applicants through the subprime process, which he later accused the banks of doing after the 2008 Housing market crash that was arguably caused by the exacerbations of quotas for making really bad loans. In short, once a scumbag always a scumbag.
We reported when former Deputy Secretary for Economic Development and Special Advisor to Governor Cuomo spanning from March 2015 until October 2018, Lindsey Boylan dropped a bombshell allegation that the New York governor sexually harassed her for years and that it got so bad she would feel sick when she got to work each day and it caused her to finally quit her job.
“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched.
I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.”
After talking to her family about her ordeal, her mother said that Andrew Cuomo was a “sexist pig,” and warned her daughter to stay clear of him.
So now he can add “serial predator” to his abysmal record as both Republicans and Democrats have started calling for his resignation or that he be impeached. Democrat state senators have already called for having his emergency powers stripped.
After Melissa DeRosa, a top aide to the governor, spilled the beans on a conference call with other Democrat leaders around the state that the administration hid the true numbers of COVID-19 deaths from nursing homes, the calls for Cuomo to go only grew.
For his fall from grace, you could almost feel sorry for him except that he is one of the most arrogant and obnoxious jerks you’ve ever had to sit and listen to. The fact that he won an Emmy award for his coronavirus press briefings when the whole time he was an incompetent fraud sullied the reputation of the award reminiscent of when the Nobel committee destroyed its public worth after giving Barack Obama a Nobel Peace Prize before he ever did anything, and then he went on to get us involved in more military skirmishes than his predecessor George W Bush.
I don’t know what is more catastrophic, Cuomo’s acting like a bully, his incompetence, or the fact that high-ranking Democrats across the state knew this all along and said nothing until now.
It doesn’t help their cause when they openly admit it as city Public Advocate Jumaane Williams did on Wednesday when she trashed Cuomo at an anti-Cuomo rally.
“This is who he has always been long before the pandemic . . . It is finally exposing who we knew this governor was all along, from pay-to-play with real estate to pay-to-play with nursing-home owners, to ducking accountability, to passing blame to everyone but himself, to bullying tactics.”
We reported when Assemblyman Ron Kim told the story of receiving a phone call from the governor at night when he was bathing his children to threaten to “destroy” him if he didn’t help obstruct the political firestorm hitting the Cuomo administration’s cover-up of nursing home residents COVID-19 deaths. He tried to force the lawmaker to write a statement to dilute the fallout of DeRosa’s admission that the administration covered up the nursing home deaths data.
“Everyone in New York politics knows he has been abusive for a long time,” Kim told Bloomberg TV, “to his staff, elected officials, even journalists.”
Then where were you this whole time, Kim? Why did you not say anything until now? How come no one in the media has ever asked him that question?
It’s because they all had something in common with Cuomo: their hatred for Donald Trump. Cuomo did a huge reversal on recognition of the help that Trump provided for New York, first praising the former president for all that he did to make sure the state received everything they needed to combat the coronavirus, and then, inexplicably, he did a complete 180 turn around and started bashing Trump, claiming the exact opposite for many of the bullet items he once praised the Trump administration for accomplishing previously.
Cuomo had praises heaped upon him for how wonderful he was during the pandemic. Joe Biden referred to the New York governor as the “gold standard” for leadership, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she was a big fan of the three-term governor, and much more praise came from Democrats and some Republicans as well as he was silently killing at least 10,000 helpless seniors with his forcing nursing homes to take in COVID-19 positive patients.
In reality, they all knew all along that he was fully unprepared to handle the coronavirus pandemic. Reports came out that the Cuomo administration hadn’t replenished ventilators when they were depleted and this arrogant man insulted President Trump claiming the federal government didn’t “give” him enough of them, even though it was known that several years prior to the pandemic the state had 16,000 fewer ventilators than the 18,000 they needed in case a severe pandemic came along. At that point, the state could have decided to purchase more ventilators to bring them back to the standard that hospitals would need, but instead, the health commissioner, Howard Zucker, created a task force for rationing the ventilators they already had. That means they wanted to use the money to purchase ventilators somewhere else. But it was perfectly fine to blame Donald Trump for New York’s lack of ventilators.
Cumo made some extremely stupid decisions at the start of the pandemic, like when he kept the subway system running but cut down the number of trains, hoping that would nudge workers to either find other modes of transportation or stay home from work during the crisis. Instead, most New Yorkers continued going to work via the trains, and thanks to the Cuomo-imposed shortage of trains the riders were packed in like sardines and that made it much easier to spread the virus.
It’s almost as if Cuomo spent the whole pandemic blaming other people for his own screw ups, like when he recently shifted blame for the thousands of deaths due to his decision to force COVID patients into nursing homes on the nursing home staff themselves, arrogantly claiming that coronavirus didn’t get into the nursing homes by the COVID-positive patients he sent to them, but by the staffers who worked there. It was an unbelievable attempt to skirt responsibility.
Talking about skirting responsibility, Cuomo even wrote a book about how great he handled the coronavirus pandemic before the coronavirus pandemic ended. It was as if he wanted to get a jump on what he knew would be a barrage of complaints and criticisms over his ineptitude throughout the whole ordeal. Everything he did was political, including turning New Yorkers against taking the COVID vaccine simply because it was created through the efforts of the Trump administration removing government red tape to allow the private sector to get it done in record time.
This man was a disaster for New Yorkers yet the mainstream news media loved him because they were able to use him to discredit Trump and blame the former president for every COVID death, which was the whole point from the perspective of the Democratic Party from the very beginning. They hammered every death into the minds of Americans to harm his reelection chances.
I don’t normally relish watching someone’s life fall apart, which is much worse than an ordinary fall from grace, but in this case, I hope Cuomo gets everything he deserves because he’s not a nice person in any sense and he hurt an awful lot of families by putting politics over the concerns of his fellow New Yorkers.
You knew this was going to happen even as Joe Biden claimed he was against packing the Supreme Court. He has created a commission on reforming the Supreme Court.
One of the appointments to the commission is Caroline Fredrickson, the former president of the American Constitution Society. She is very vocal in her support for packing the Supreme Court. Other members are vague on what reforms they favor and have not said if they favor court-packing.
“I often point out to people who aren’t lawyers that the Supreme Court is not defined as ‘nine-person body’ in the Constitution, and it has changed size many times.”
Other members selected so far are Cristina Rodríguez, a Yale Law School professor and a former deputy assistant attorney general for Obama and Jack Goldsmith, a Harvard Law School professor, and a former assistant attorney general for George W Bush.
More members will be added as time goes on. What could possibly go wrong? Remember these are Democrats so we should be asking what could go right.
Speaking about the formation of the committee during his candidacy Biden said:
“It’s not about court-packing. There’s a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I’ve looked to see what recommendations that commission might make.’
“There’s a number of alternatives that go well beyond packing. The last thing we need to do is turn the Supreme Court into just a political football — whoever has the most votes gets whatever they want. Presidents come and go. Supreme Court justices stay for generations.”
Back in October when Biden announced his intentions to launch the commission. At the time he was embroiled in a battle as the press could not get him to answer if he would be for packing the court multiple times.
His silence is all the proof you need that he is willing to pack the court to keep them from striking down parts of his radical agenda.
A federal court has already ruled against him on his moratorium on deporting criminal illegal aliens.
A group of Democrats have filed an ethics complaint against Sen Josh Hawley and Sen Ted Cruz. Those Democratic Senators include Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Tim Kaine (D-VA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Tina Smith (D-MN), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH). These same Democrats never considered filing ethics complaints against any Democrat who did exactly the same in 2001, 2005 and 2017.
In 2001, Maxine Waters objected to the election of George W Bush. In 2005 Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio, and then-Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif objected and in 2017 it was radical Rep Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash. None of them were charged with ethics complaints. And for good reason. The law gives members of congress the right to object to the electoral vote.
Electoral Count Act of 1887:
Objecting to the Counting of One or More
Provisions in 3 U.S.C. §15 include a procedure for making and acting on objections to the
counting of one or more of the electoral votes from a state or the District of Columbia. When the
certificate or equivalent paper from each state (or the District of Columbia) is read, “the President
of the Senate shall call for objections, if any.”
Any such objection must be presented in writing and must be signed by at least one Senator and one Representative. The objection “shall state
clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof. ” During the joint session of
January 6, 2001, the presiding officer intervened on several occasions to halt attempts to make
speeches under the guise of offering an objection.
Hawley then decided that he had a complaint against the Democrats who failed to recognize his right of free speech or the law allowing members of congress to object to electoral results.
Hawley wrote in his ethics complaint:
In light of the shameful abuse of the ethics process you have deliberately engaged in, I have considered whether I should call for you to resign or be expelled from the Senate. But I continue to believe in the First Amendment, which the US Supreme Court has repeatedly said protects even “offensive” and malicious speech, such as yours.
The First Amendment does not, however, give you carte blanche to abuse the Senate ethics process. I have today filed a complaint with the ethics committee that details your deliberate and partisan abuse of this process, including your apparent coordination with various dark money groups, and requests that you be appropriately disciplined.
Hawley asked the ethics committee if:
- Coordinated with the Never Trump organization the Lincoln Project, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), MoveOn, Voto Latino, the Sierra Club, and other outside organizations.
- Coordinated with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the Joe Biden administration, and other members of Democrat leadership.
- Coordinated with lobbyists for corporations urging the suspension of those corporations’ political contributions.
- Hawley asks that the Democratic Senators be punished for using the ethics process to be weaponized against anyone that disagrees with them and to assure they refrain from doing so in the future.
On Thursday, Representative Steve Cohen (D-TN), who has been a loud critic of President Donald Donald Trump, introduced two bills to do away with the Electoral College and prevent presidents from pardoning themselves or their family members.
These people are as unamerican as it gets.
Cohen introduced the constitutional amendments on the first night of the 116th Congress, both insults to Trump.
“Presidents should not pardon themselves, their families, their administration or campaign staff,” Cohen said in a statement. “This constitutional amendment would expressly prohibit this and any future president, from abusing the pardon power.”
The numbskull congressman doesn’t understand that the president has plenary powers of the pardon and any use of it is not an abuse of power. It’s like listening to children.
A third term of President Jimmy Carter is more likely than for either of the Amendments to pass because Amendments require a two-thirds vote in both chambers of Congress and then they go out to the states and must be ratified by three-fourths of them. Yes, I know that presidents can only have two terms. As I said, a third term of Jimmy Carter has a better chance.
Cohen is the loudmouth who once predicted that Donald Trump Jr. and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner would both be indicted by Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed by his good buddy Rod Rosenstein to investigate the fake phony fraud Russian collusion delusion nonsense. Of course, he wouldn’t provide any evidence. None of the Democrats who said the Trump family was guilty of anything ever did. Hell, Adam Schiff (D-CA) the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee for over two years said daily that he had evidence that Russian collusion happened with the Trump campaign, and he never provided a single piece of his professed evidence.
Last summer President Trump said that he has the right to pardon himself, but that he doesn’t have to do that, because he’s done nothing wrong and has committed no crimes. The only thing a president cannot pardon themself over is an impeachment. I believe the president should rethink that logic because things have changed radically since then. The Democrats made up impeachment articles against him and there’s nothing now to stop them from making up a crime against Trump to go after him once he’s out of office.
“As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?” the president wrote in a tweet.
Many Democrats are bringing back the idiotic idea of getting rid of the Electoral College. They started complaining about it after George W Bush lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College. Only five presidents have done that: John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, George W Bush, and Donald J Trump. Hillary Clinton’s first bill she presented as a US Senator was the eliminate the Electoral College. Back then, most of the Democrats in Washington still had some common sense and the bill was never taken seriously. Hillary certainly screeched a lot about it after she won the popular vote against Donald Trump (304-227), but he won the Electoral College.
“In two presidential elections since 2000, including the most recent one in which Hillary Clinton won 2.8 million more votes than her opponent, the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College,” Cohen blathered in his statement about the bill he introduced. “Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office.”
Cohen appears to suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome at Level 7, which is the highest known level of the disease.
“More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of US Senators,” he added. “It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President.”
This clown doesn’t understand that the 17th Amendment which changed how Senators are elected was one of the single most damaging Amendments to our country ever passed. Prior to the 17th Amendment, senators were elected by state legislatures. This meant that if a US Senator was voting in ways that were not supportive of his state, the legislature could remove him from office. The 17th Amendment changed that and senators are now elected by the popular vote of the American voters. The problem with this is that the change in how senators are elected made it so that senators are no longer loyal to their state, but now are loyal to Washington, DC. It was the creation of the Swamp.
What Cohen is doing is showboating for his constituents and his Democrat colleagues, but more importantly he is showboating his extreme ignorance of the law and our history.
