While Promoting Their Book Praising a Transgender Woman, Hillary and Chelsea are Asked: Can a Woman Have Male Genitals?

Can someone with a beard be a woman?

How about if they’re sportin’ the macho part that guys have “down there”?

These are questions recently asked, and not on an elementary school science test. Rather, they were put to Hillary Clinton and daughter Chelsea — at an event supporting their book in praise of chicks with intestinal fortitude.

One of the people championed in The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience is Danica Roem — the first man identifying as a woman to be elected to an American state legislature.

And while speaking with British reporter Decca Aitkenhead for a piece to be published in The Sunday Times, the two were quizzed on the aforementioned female adornments.

As noted by the Daily Mail, 39-year-old Chelsea didn’t have to think about it for even a sec:

“Yes.”

71-year-old Hillary, according to the DM, looked “uneasy.”

Here’s how Hil climbed it:

“Errr. I’m just learning about this. It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.”

I’m just spitballin’ here, but I believe that was a genuine answer.

Here’s an interesting bit about female and male from the Mail:

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’
That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea also expressed delight at the National Health Service’s new policy of assigning single-sex wards according to gender identity rather than biology:

“How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?”

She also Amen’d the entrance of men into women’s athletics:

“And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity. I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.”

In the world of wokeness, Hillary’s no slouch herself — she recently explained her decision to say with Bill amid his exposed romps with Monica Lewinsky thusly:

“Sometimes, when your child has an issue — I had a friend a few years ago who called up and said ‘I don’t know who to talk to about this, but my little girl wants to be a boy. What do I do?’ And, you know, several of us kind of — we didn’t know what to do, we never had a friend who’d faced that before. Several of us kind of read everything and talked to people and gave her advice and it was really gutsy for her to say, ‘Okay, I’m going to respect the feelings of my child, as hard as it is for me to understand this.’”

But she seemed to slip with The Sunday Times, and I’d expect there to be a backlash to her response:

“I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is. There are women who’d say [to a man identifying as a woman], ‘You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.’ I hear that conversation all the time.”

It’s dicy territory, but maybe she’s actually right — she does believe in being “gutsy.”

Chick-fil-A and In-N-Out Burger: A New Business Model Based on Values?

Westlake Legal Group D2A810EA-6D65-4EC0-B1B8-D6FB523DA153 Chick-fil-A and In-N-Out Burger: A New Business Model Based on Values? Uncategorized republicans Politics In-N-Out Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Chick-Fil-A Allow Media Exception
Chick-fil-A isn’t the only large company making the news for its Christian outlook. My good friend and associate, Brandon Morse notes that In-N-Out Burger Joins Chick-Fil-A As A Company That Openly Celebrates Its Christian Values.

If you remember, Chick-fil-A has been under constant attack from the left over its founder Truett Cathy’s Christian values. Specifically, he believes that the physical practice of the disorder known as homosexuality is a sin. From that one personal view, the left has organized boycotts and sit-ins at Chick-Fi-A locations. It has bullied local authorities into denying permits or location access for new restaurants. One case in point is the San Antonio Airport Authority refusing to allow a Chick-fil-A store in its retail area. Even some colleges, like Rider University in New Jersey, have banned the restaurant from the campus.

Interestingly, Chick-fil-A doesn’t discriminate at all in its hiring or customer service practices. They merely serve good chicken at a fair price and always with a smile. They also appear to live their Christian values. It seems every other week I see a story here or there about some Chick-fil-A employee going the extra mile for a customer, sometimes even at extreme risk to his own life.

Chick-fil-A employees even live those values when egregiously provoked. Turning the other cheek isn’t just a Gospel verse to them. They actually practice it. Many of you have seen the viral video of the “man”** who actually videoed his abusive, verbal assault on a young female at the drive though window of a Chick-fil-A. While he was about as nasty as he could be, that young lady was the epitome of composure and Christian charity, not saying one harsh word in return. That company is obviously doing something right. See video below.

During that same time period, Chick-fil-A’s locations that had protestors, had their employees serve those same protestors cold water while they were out in the hot sun. That’s a company owned and staffed by better folks than I’ll ever be.

Now we come to In-N-Out Burger. As my colleague quotes in his article, the current owner-heiress Liysi Snyder

It was my uncle Rich who put the Bible verses on the cups and wrappers in the early ‘90s, just before he passed away,” she told the Christian Post. “He had just accepted the Lord and wanted to put that little touch of his faith on our brand. It’s a family business and will always be, and that’s a family touch. In later years, I added verses to the fry boat, coffee, and hot cocoa cups.

Morse goes on to describe Snyder’s Christian philosophy. You can see the details in the article. Below is his wrap up with one very interesting point, which is the subject of my follow on,

It’s very brave, especially in this day and age, for any CEO to openly come out and proclaim their love of Christ. However, the backlash that typically follows from doing so is made moot in the face of the support from American Christians. Chick-fil-A has also had its share of backlash and continues to fight battles for its open adherence to scripture, but its support is so wide and far that it’s become the third most successful fast food joint in America.

A Forbes 2018 article goes on to add more detail to Snyder’s faith and to topline the business numbers

Revenue should surpass $1 billion this year, roughly doubling in eight years, and the business is debt-free, according to the company. In-N-Out is conservatively worth $3 billion.

Those are just two businesses run by practicing Christians. I mean real, practicing Christians. There are others, others who got national attention as they were persecuted by leftists — both private citizens and those in government. One such is Hobby Lobby, which had to spend millions in litigation costs until the United States Supreme Court removed the government boot of the Obama Administration from its neck.

There are a number of things common to the companies I just mentioned. First of all, these companies make no secret of their profound belief in the teachings of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It’s also not that big a secret that these companies and more than a few others, big and small (Christian Baker in Colorado?), have been targeted by the leftists in this country, often brutally so and with the acceptance if not downright connivance of leftist Local, State and Federal Governments. It has taken U.S. Supreme Court intervention to bring some sort of relief.

Here is some good news in all of this. Doing the right thing, staying the course, standing firm can often result in triumph. Although as a Christian, who is not supposed to indulge in schadenfreude, I experienced a “mild satisfaction,” OK…OK, I was flat out tickled pink to read that Chick-fil-A has moved into the number 3 spot in U.S. sales behind Starbucks and Mickey D’s. This achievement despite being closed on Sunday’s. That’s right, in an affirmation of its Christian value set, Chick-fil-A willingly foregoes a 14 percent revenue bump, right off the bat in its competition with other fast food places, yet there they are, in third place.

There are a couple of morals to this story. First, you cannot go wrong by following God’s word and holding fast to traditional American values and morality. Here’s the second…The silent majority of America is very powerful. Courts may rule, politicians may pontificate and leftist agitators can protest and bully young counter clerks, but that silent majority sees this and says, We get a vote too. We will vote with our dollars. We will throw our support behind American companies with American values, with Godly values.

Other American companies might wish to take this approach. Instead of running from the American flag. Instead of running from God, embrace them both. Next time I’m in Texas, In-N-Out will definitely be on my dinner list. Meanwhile, here in Alabama, we will turn the other cheek and order another Chicken Sandwich and waffle fries.

Adam Schiff Bans a Republican From the “Impeachment Hearings” As the Secrecy Continues

Westlake Legal Group AS Adam Schiff Bans a Republican From the “Impeachment Hearings” As the Secrecy Continues The Federalist secrecy Sean Davis Politics Matt Gaetz Impeachment Hearing Hiding Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats cover up corruption banned Allow Media Exception adam schiff

I guess we are going to impeach Trump based on non-public information. That seems to be the direction this continues to move in.

No doubt, Rep. Adam Schiff is planning to formulate his own “report” and release it eventually, but along the way, he doesn’t want any daylight to shine on what’s he’s doing. He took an even more direct step in covering up everything by banning Rep. Matt Gaetz from an “impeachment hearing” today.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., just banned a key Republican lawmaker from the deposition of a former anti-Trump national security official believed to be at the center of ongoing Ukraine proceedings, sources tell The Federalist. Schiff tossed Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., out of the deposition.

Although the U.S. House of Representatives has not approved a resolution authorizing a formal impeachment investigation, House Democrats have nonetheless insisted that they have full authority to subpoena all documents and testimony they desire, even if specific committees lack the jurisdiction to demand particular information. Schiff, whom Pelosi tapped to lead her party’s anti-Trump impeachment efforts, chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), which only has jurisdiction over the federal government’s intelligence agencies and related components.

This all connects back to the Democrat strategy of not actually voting on impeachment. In reality, there is not “impeachment inquiry” and there are no hearings. These are simply partisan-led and enforced committee interviews taking place, nothing more. The media have hyped it up to be something it isn’t.

Because there’s been no vote, Republicans continue to have no authority to participate and that’s showing here with Schiff’s latest move to ban Gaetz. Schiff shouldn’t even be part of this, as he’s not on the House Judiciary Committee. Instead, he’s being allowed to run point while Gaetz, who is on that committee, is being denied even basic access to what’s going on. In other words, this is a complete sham. If Republicans had acted this way during the Benghazi hearings, it would of been front page news and led to a continual gnashing of teeth from the legacy media. Because it’s Schiff and the Democrats, they act like this is all fine. Republicans are suckers though, so they bent over backwards to allow access to equal time to the other party.

The person testifying today is Fiona Hill, who appears to be one of the “whistle-blower’s” sources. What she could possibly add to the situation when we already have the transcript is beyond me, but the game here is clearly not to get facts. It’s to simply push a narrative. Schiff will continue to trot out witness after witness, drawing this out into next year if he can. In the end, we already have the most important piece of information and it’s being largely ignored now.

What appears to be happening is that President Trump blew up their game plan by releasing the transcript to begin with. They wanted to slow-roll this, much like the Kavanaugh hearing, with selective leaks and a laundry list of people playing into their story. Now, with the call already out there, we are doing some weird theater where we pretend 2nd and 3rd hand accounts are somehow relevant. They aren’t. What’s relevant is what’s in the call.

Of course, Schiff will get away with it because there’s no one to actually call out what he’s doing. Anyone think CNN is going to criticize what’s going on? Didn’t think so.

Mark Zuckerberg Is Meeting In Secret With Conservatives Discussing Free Speech

Well, what do you know?

Seems that CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has been sitting down in secret with conservative pundits, writers and even a congressperson as of late. Maybe he realizes that Elizabeth Warren and her merry bunch of zealots are worse than dealing with people he opposes politically.

According to Politico this has been going on for a short time…

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been hosting informal talks and small, off-the-record dinners with conservative journalists, commentators and at least one Republican lawmaker in recent months to discuss issues like free speech and discuss partnerships.

The dinners, which began in July, are part of Zuckerberg’s broader effort to cultivate friends on the right amid outrage by President Donald Trump and his allies over alleged “bias” against conservatives at Facebook and other major social media companies. “I’m under no illusions that he’s a conservative but I think he does care about some of our concerns,” said one person familiar with the gatherings, which multiple sources have confirmed.

Some of the people who have been rumored to have attended the meetings are Mary Katharine Ham, Ben Shapiro, Matt Continetti, Guy Benson, and Brent Bozell. Byron York confirmed he attended one of the dinners but refused to discuss what was talked about.

The article does say that this outreach was to try and ease some of the fears of those that might have some influence with the Trump administration in the hope to quiet some of the saber-rattling.

Trump is not your problem Mark.

Elizabeth Warren is on the warpath (PUN FULLY INTENDED) and she is coming for your monopoly buddy.

This is a classic example of liberals wanting to claim the higher ground while shutting down any discussion of any ground under the rules of feelings being hurt. Zuckerberg is part of this mindset no matter how many dinners he holds to try a charm offensive and act otherwise.

All you have to do is treat both sides equally.

In this case, what that means is to let the words fly. Don’t referee to any side and you will not have any issue. The notion that Facebook has been treating all sides fairly is ludicrous. Just go and google how many grievances people that are “right” leaning have been banned as opposed to “left” leaning. The complaints are numerous on the right. If you think the left doesn’t like to complain when they get axed I have a bridge to sell you in Chappaquiddick.

Hopefully, these meetings do show Mark that conservatives are not that scary and these concerns should be dealt with going from the top down.

Otherwise, you will have to deal with Elizabeth Warren and no one rational wants to do that.

Violent Meme? How About Actual Violence Against Trump Supporters Like These Attacks

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-14-at-3.46.07-PM Violent Meme? How About Actual Violence Against Trump Supporters Like These Attacks media bias Media Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats antifa Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

Liberal media is all atwitter today over a video that was shown at a pro-Trump conference.

The video shows people with the logos of various networks replacing their faces getting shot at. The video was shown to a view people off in a side room and wasn’t endorsed by Trump or the White House. The White House immediately condemned the video. It was an old video from a year ago that had minimal viewership – until media began sharing it.

They claim that this is a result of Trump cultivating hate against the media.

But they’re completely lacking in self-awareness about the divisive climate they themselves have cultivated by demonizing the president as an existential threat and pushing conspiracy theories about his legitimacy and his presidency.

They ignore video such as the one from Snoop Dogg targeting President Donald Trump for assassination, aiming a gun at Trump’s head.

They ignore actual harassment and attacks, not memes or videos, on GOP officials and Trump supporters.

Did the media condemn Democrats demonizing Republicans over healthcare and calling the GOP an existential threat? Many GOP members were attacked and harassed by people on the left, the most known incident being the folks shot at the GOP baseball practice by a Bernie Bro who yelled, “This is for healthcare” as he shot at people.

Has the media condemned the Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) who encouraged harassment of Trump officials?

Did network media even cover the attacks on Trump supporters at the Minnesota rally? Where was the network coverage and condemnation of this?

We covered some of the rally attacks here and here. But here’s another one.

Here’s a longer take of many of the attacks from local Alpha News.

Warning for graphic language.

No one should be encouraging violence against anyone and violence should be condemned.

Yet media seems often quiet when it comes to real violence directed at the GOP or Trump supporters. And even in the case of Antifa attacks, people like CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo have minimized such violence treating it more as a bug rather than a feature, saying that Antifa’s cause is “right” or “just.”

People see that and they see the double standard.

Watch: Lee Zeldin Blasts Schiff’s “Impeachment Cocktail”, Demands Vote on Impeachment Inquiry

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., speaks during a news conference, with other House members, where they called for a second prosecutor to investigate the Dept. of Justice and FBI, Tuesday, May 22, 2018, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

Last week, I wrote about how Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) absolutely ripped House Intel Chair Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over what he called a “clown show” impeachment inquiry process where selective bits of information were allegedly being leaked to the media by Democrats in order to paint a distorted picture of what had been said behind closed doors so far.

Zeldin, the ranking member on the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, continued hammering this point home over the weekend in several interviews, including one he did on ABC Sunday with Jonathan Karl.

During the interview, Zeldin blasted the fact that Pelosi still refuses to hold an impeachment inquiry vote on the House floor, which would give Republicans subpoena power and President Trump’s legal team the ability to do things like cross-examine witnesses.

He also pointed out that Schiff was trying to get Americans drunk on an “impeachment cocktail”, which he said contained three ingredients.

Here’s a partial transcript:

KARL: So you’re OK with all — all the transcripts coming out? You want to see Fiona Hill, who’s testifying next week, you want to see all — all the people that the administration does not want to testify, you want those transcripts to be out?

ZELDIN: No, the president wants there to be a process. The president is saying that there should be a vote for an impeachment inquiry, as you just pointed out with Congressman Himes, there should be a process. The minority parties should have subpoena power. The president should have counsel present. He should be able to cross-exam witnesses; he should be able to present evidence. There should be a process, but instead what Adam Schiff wants is to get United States of America drunk on his favorite cocktail. There’s three ingredients. One is cherry-picking leaks, second is withholding facts, and three is just outright lying. I mean he is — he lied about his whistleblower contact, he lied when he gave his opening statement in front of the Acting Director of National Intelligence, he lied when he said that President Trump requested President Zelensky to, quote, manufacture dirt. Now, if we all had Ambassador Volker’s testimony, we would know that that’s not true. We would also know that it obliterated the quid pro quo charge, that fairytale, that President Trump supposedly demanded that there would be an investigation open against the Bidens in order to get aid from the United States to Ukraine.

KARL: It’s clear that he brought this up exactly when the issue with aid to Ukraine was raised.

ZELDIN: No — well let’s — this, what Ambassador Volker’s transcript would show you substantively.

Zeldin also stated that contra to media/Democrat talking points that suggest otherwise, the assertions Trump made about Joe Biden and Hunter Biden as it relates to the Ukrainian prosecutor and Burisma Holdings have not been debunked.

Did ABC News Try to Pass off 2016 Gun Range Video as Footage of Turkey’s Military Bombing Kurd Civilians?

President Trump received widespread criticism for his decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria.

In a weekend broadcast, it sure looks like ABC News tried to pass off dramatic video from a 2016 Knob Creek (West Point, Kentucky) night shoot for footage of “Turkey’s military bombing of Kurd civilians.”

A brief clip from the ABC broadcast can be viewed in the tweet below.

Here is the 2016 Knob Creek video which was uploaded in 2017.

It sure looks like the same video, right down to the formation of the little white lights in the foreground, which are the cell phones of the people  watching the shoot. You can see them clearly in the video.

It’s possible this video was included by mistake, but knowing how the mainstream media operates, I doubt that very much.

If I hear differently, I’ll add an update.

Which two Dems have strongest ground game? It may surprise you.

Westlake Legal Group Buttigieg Which two Dems have strongest ground game? It may surprise you. The Blog Polling Pete Buttigieg Elizabeth Warren democrats 2020 Democrat candidates 2020 campaign

As far as ground games go in the early primary states, the two strongest operations come from the campaigns of Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg. Warren isn’t so much of a surprise as is Buttigieg.

A piece in the New York Times tallied up the numbers. Warren and Buttigieg have more campaign offices in the early states than any of the other Democrats running for the 2020 presidential nomination. Both Warren and Buttigieg have a total of 47 field offices. Both are going all-in in Iowa, with Joe Biden a close third in Iowa. In the rest of the early primary states, though, Biden is far less aggressive.

Ms. Warren and Mr. Buttigieg have broken away from the Democratic pack with the most field offices overall in the four early states, and they are making an expensive bet that organizational strength on the ground will catapult them to crucial top finishes in Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses. Their ground games give them more workspaces for organizers and volunteers. More organizers lead to more in-person contact with potential supporters in every nook and cranny of a state.

And in Iowa, where picking a candidate is akin to a religious conversion following extended evangelism from a supporter, a strong and broad organization is often the backbone of a winning campaign.

We know that Elizabeth Warren is battling Joe Biden for the lead in most of the polls right now, while Bernie Sanders is solidly in third place. What isn’t noticed so much is that Buttigieg is quietly advancing and is in the top spot in the second tier of candidates. Any momentum that Kamala Harris saw after the first nationally televised debate has completely fallen away. She’s proven to be a poor candidate. In the RCP averaging Monday morning, Biden is at 27.8%, Warren is at 26.0%, and Sanders rounds out the first tier of candidates at 15.2%. The second tier shows Buttigieg at 5% and Harris at 4.5%. Andrew Yang is at 2.7%. Then in what I think of as the third tier (bottom dwellers) are all the rest, led by O’Rourke, who is at 1.8%.

Presidential elections are not national, though, and it is the numbers in the state polls that provide a better picture of what is happening on the ground. Of the top four candidates in Iowa, for example, Warren leads at 22.7% and Biden is at 19.3%. Sanders is at 16.0% while Buttigieg has quietly risen to 12%. For comparison within the second tier, Harris is at 5.3% in Iowa. Buttigieg now has the largest operation of any of the candidates in Iowa. He has 20 field offices and a staff that’s hovering around 130. Buttigieg’s Iowa state director says, “We’re building an organization to win in February because this is a now or never moment for our country.”

Buttigieg may be trying to moderate his campaign rhetoric, too. Though he is still definitely in the far left side of politics, he is less so than others. For instance, in an interview on CNN, he threw Robert Francis O’Rourke under the bus for his crazy position that churches should lose their tax-exempt status if they don’t embrace same-sex marriage and other parts of the LGBTQ agenda. He told Jake Tapper, “I’m not sure he understood the implications of what he was saying.”

If or when Joe Biden leaves the race, Buttigieg might be in a position to pick up the support of his supporters. When or if Sanders leaves the race, though I think he will once again say in until the last minute unless he has another health event, Warren is the natural home for his supporters. What if it all comes down to a Buttigieg and Warren contest by the time we get to the convention? Within the party of identity politics, does a gay, white man in his thirties garner more support than a 71-year-old white woman who lied about her own personal biography for personal profit? One would be the first gay president and one would be the first woman president. Decisions, decisions.

Something both will have to work on is capturing more support from black voters. In the case of Mayor Pete, he has zero support from them. Buttigieg is in Ohio today and rolling out endorsements from state officials and officeholders.

Warren and Buttigieg are the only ones with field offices in Republican-leaning rural areas that swung from Obama to Trump in 2016 in Iowa. Biden’s campaign is concentrating on areas strong in union support. Buttigieg drew a crowd of around 700 people on Saturday night in Des Moines. Buttigieg raised $19.1 million in third-quarter fundraising so he has the resources to go full-tilt in the early states to challenge the top tier if he doesn’t make any big mistakes. It’s still early yet, of course, and anything can happen. After starting to count him out, I’m going back to keeping an eye on him.

James O’Keefe Releases ‘Part One’ of the #ExposeCNN Series

Westlake Legal Group CNN-620x280 James O’Keefe Releases ‘Part One’ of the #ExposeCNN Series project veritas Nick Neville Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism james o'keefe Hiram Gonzalez Front Page Stories fake news elections donald trump democrats Cary Poarch Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power #Expose CNN

 

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe released the first video from his anticipated #ExposeCNN undercover series.

Cary Poarch, who has been working at CNN as a satellite link technician at the Washington CNN Bureau, was stunned by the amount of  propaganda he saw the network pumping out. He tells O’Keefe, “I didn’t see any other option…I decided to wear a hidden camera to expose the bias.”

We see a conscious effort on the part of CNN’s leader, Jeff Zucker, to shape the narrative, the way the network will cover an individual or a story.

Poarch records Nick Neville, a media coordinator at the network, talking about Jeff Zucker’s “personal vendetta” against Trump.

Next Hiram Gonzalez, a floor director, is heard saying that the media created the Trump monster.

Then Poarch records the 9 am rundown call which stars Jeff Zucker. Zucker is heard making the astounding claim that Fox News has been spreading fake news for years. Here are a couple of his remarks:

I think what’s going on in America now is really fundamentally the result of years of fake news, conspiracy nonsense from Fox News. The fake conspiracy nonsense that Fox has spread for years is now deeply embedded into American society and frankly, that is beyond destructive for America.

So, I wanna say on the Lindsay Graham front. I know that there’s a lot of people at CNN who are friendly with Lindsay Graham. Time to knock that off and call him out.

Watch Part 1 below.

(O’Keefe said he will be uploading videos all day and night. I will be posting them as they become available.)
