The duplicitious acrimony aimed at Republicans and Russia is pretty amazing.
It’s too bad the myopic Democrats were unwilling to link Russia’s purchase of 20% of America’s uranium stockpile with The Clintons and their Foundation. Millions flowed into the Foundation at the same time Hillary Clinton was play-acting as Secretary of State.
Bill Clinton received $500,000.00 as a speaking fee, and Hillary had to sign off on the purchase of the uranium.
Nothing to see there I guess, no suspicion about the Ruskies as long as Billary were being personally enriched. The response of Congressional Democrats was the same old puerile rhetoric about witch hunts and taxpayer dollars and yet, with absolutely NO evidence that Flynn did anything untoward, the Obama supporters in the Intelligence community leaked classified info.
Similarly, Hillary’s use of a private server and Comey’s discovery of numerous examples of classified documents on it didn’t raise an eyebrow with Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi or Elijah Cummings who were all too willing to concentrate on Putin and his infiltration of the DNC and its email system.
Even though Hillary lost the election, Progressives have found a way to be the Dark Government in power. Now we have Leftist judges spelling out our national security policy, government employees who hate Trump, using personal devices to mount resistance, and Intelligence employees committing felonies by leaking classified info more than a drunk guy on a Saturday night binge.
The “what did he know and when did he know it” dictum seems to have taken center stage concerning Trump but no Democrat was interested in having Obama answer that question after the attack on the Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the preventable loss of 4 American lives. Even after leaked emails showed that within 24 hours Hillary had emailed the Egyptian Prime Minister that it was a terrorist attack, the willfully ignorant Democrats surrounded the wagons and ran interference, spouting the oft-used phrase, ‘nothing to see here.’
Could it have been if the truth of that night got into the mainstream it would have given Romney the much needed push to get him to the Presidency, especially after Biden’s “GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead” chestnut?
Enjoy it while it lasts.
10 Democrat Senators are up for re-election in 2018 in states where Trump won in 5 of them, and, more importantly Republicans are just one state legislature win away from the ability to convene an Article V Convention of the States, which would empower the states against an out-of-control federal government. This would give states the final say against federal laws and regulations, as well as Supreme Court decisions, and put the control back in the hands of the people, where our Founding Fathers knew it would operate best.
Article V of the US Constitution:
“The Congress, whenever 2/3 of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of 2/3 of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of 3/4 of the several States, or by Conventions in 3/4 thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratifications may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article, and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.”
Democrats seem to be utterly impotent to have that epiphany, and practice even a little introspection as to why a majority of Americans totally reject their style of politics.
Like shooting fish in a barrel!
