New Documents Show Obama Administration Continually Lied About Knowledge of Hillary Email Server

Westlake Legal Group Clinton-disgusted-620x334 New Documents Show Obama Administration Continually Lied About Knowledge of Hillary Email Server Secretary of State Records Act Politics Obama Administration lying judicial watch Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page FOIA Featured Story Email server democrats Barack Obama

But her emails, right?

I mean, if we can focus on 35 year old tax returns that show Trump legally lost a lot of money, I don’t see any issue going back a few years to corruption in the Obama administration.

Judicial Watch has obtained new emails which show that not only did they know about Hillary’s server long before they claimed, but they were keeping tabs on it all to manage the situation.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained 44 pages of records from the State Department through court-ordered discovery revealing that the Obama White House was tracking a December 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking records concerning then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecure, non-government email system. Months after the Obama White House involvement, the State Department responded to the requestor, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), falsely stating that no such records existed.

While legitimate FOIA requests were flowing in, the Obama administration was lying to requestors and saying the records didn’t exist. All the while, they knew Hillary had a private server full of official emails, to the point where even Obama himself would correspond with her via a pseudonym.

On January 10, 2013, Walter writes to Samuelson that she is not including “personal” accounts in the FOIA request search:

“Hi Heather – did you ever get any intell re what other agencies are doing re this FOIA request that seeks records about the number of email accounts associated with the Secretary (but isn’t specifying “personal” email accounts so we are interpreting as official accounts only). We are considering contacting the requester to find out exactly what it is they are looking for. Do you have any-concerns about that approach?”

Soon afterward, Samuelson responds, “White House Counsel was looking into this for me. I will circle back with them now to see if they have further guidance.”

CREW’s general counsel, Anne Weismann, submitted a FOIA request to the State Department on December 6, 2012, seeking “records sufficient to show the number of email accounts of or associated with Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the extent to which those email accounts are identifiable as those of or associated with Secretary Clinton.”

On May 10, 2013, [Information Programs and Services] replied to CREW, stating that “no records responsive to your request were located.”

The short of this is that Hillary kept all her official emails on her personal server. When outside parties would make requests, they would only search her unused official accounts and then respond back that no records existed. All the while, they knew Hillary was doing business outside of official channels in a way that clearly subverted FOIA laws.

This scheme started back when Clinton first assumed her role.

The new documents also include a January 2013 email exchange discussing Clinton’s departure from the State Department in which Agency Records Officer Tasha M. Thian specifically stating that Secretary Clinton “does not use email.”

This was directly contradicted by an email exchange between Secretary Clinton and Gen. David Petraeus dating back to January 2009 – the very first days of Clinton’s State Department tenure – in which she tells Petraeus that she “had to change her email address.”

What we are seeing here is a pattern of continual lying by the Obama administration and its officials about Clinton’s use of a private email server. Furthermore, they did so to directly avoid FOIA requests which were lawfully supposed to be fulfilled.

You are not allowed to simply say “whoops, that’s on my personal account so that’s not subject to FOIA” for obvious reasons. It would allow widespread corruption.

Clinton is bulletproof so nothing will come of this, but it’s just another in the long list of bad, possibly illegal behavior by her and the Obama administration. This entire thing deserves a real investigation and not the whitewashing it got under James Comey. Anyone that opposes that is only doing so for partisan reasons.

Why Does Facebook Think That Laura Loomer Is Dangerous and ISIS Isn’t

Screengrab from https://youtu.be/3LAvE9svfLg

On May 2, Facebook announced it was banning a handful of people for literally being “too dangerous” for us proles to read or watch:

Facebook has stepped up the enforcement of its own rules, announcing the Facebook and Instagram bans of a host of controversial public figures including Alex Jones, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, Milo Yiannopoulos, and others.

It has taken action against these figures and others because Facebook considers them “dangerous,” per a definition in Facebook’s Community Guidelines. It is banning the individuals and affiliated pages from both Facebook and Instagram.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

Following the actions of other tech platforms, Facebook banned Alex Jones and InfoWars pages from Facebook in August 2018. Today’s ban affects Jones’ and InfoWars’ Instagram pages.

The ban is also affecting:

This action should be taken for the social justice warrior-inspired bullsh**. If these people have one thing in common, it isn’t that they are dangerous…far from it. If they wanted to ban dangerous people there are any number antifa people and Al Sharpton, a man who actually has innocent blood on his hands, who could have been targeted. These people were shut down simply because the mewling minions at Facebook didn’t like what they were saying. Facebook has demonstrated time and again that their objection to speech is not actually based on it being dangerous, or even unpleasant, but rather that it is dangerous and unpleasant to the anti-Christian, anti-Western Civilization goons to seem to run the place.

Case in point:

Via AP:

Facebook likes to give the impression it’s staying ahead of extremists by taking down their posts, often before users even see them. But a confidential whistleblower’s complaint to the Securities and Exchange Commission obtained by The Associated Press alleges the social media company has exaggerated its success. Even worse, it shows that the company is inadvertently making use of propaganda by militant groups to auto-generate videos and pages that could be used for networking by extremists.

The story goes on to give examples which document Facebook deliberately turning a blind eye to terrorist propaganda

At a minimum, the research behind the SEC complaint illustrates the company’s limited approach to combatting online extremism. The U.S. State Department lists dozens of groups as “designated foreign terrorist organizations” but Facebook in its public statements says it focuses its efforts on two, the Islamic State group and al-Qaida. But even with those two targets, Facebook’s algorithms often miss the names of affiliated groups. Al Azm says Facebook’s method seems to be less effective with Arabic script.

For instance, a search in Arabic for “Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula” turns up not only posts, but an auto-generated business page. One user listed his occupation as “Former Sniper” at “Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula” written in Arabic. Another user evaded Facebook’s cull by reversing the order of the countries in the Arabic for ISIS or “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.”

What this makes abundantly clear is what anyone with a brain has known from the beginning. Facebook’s concern about “community standards” is restricted to people who, in the vernacular of the intersectional left, have “privilege” (this, I’ve determined, means you have a full-time job, pay taxes, support your family, and, when your nation calls you step up). If you have the right politics or are “disadvantaged” or have other victim status…like being a terrorist…they don’t care. Louis Farrakhan had the misfortune of being the token black guy in this banning because he says nothing at all from his pulpit that Ilhan Omar doesn’t say from the floor of the House of Representatives.

The idea that Alex Jones or Milo or Laura Loomer are so uniquely dangerous that they must be banned while Facebook generates promo videos for ISIS just underscores the dishonesty that is bone-deep in Facebook that demands federal action to break it up or run it out of business.

Richard (Benedict Arnold) Burr Faces Mounting Criticism Over Decision to Subpoena Donald Trump Jr.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., right, and committee Vice Chairman Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va. confer on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Jan. 12, 2017, during the committee’s confirmation hearing for CIA Director-designate Rep. Michael Pompeo, R-Kan.

Most Americans were outraged when O.J. Simpson was acquitted for the murder of his wife, Nicole, and Ron Goldman. In that case, there was pretty solid evidence that Simpson was the killer, and the outrage was understandable. However, the law is the law and although most of us were unhappy with the verdict, we accepted it.

How much longer will President Trump and anyone associated with him continue to be prosecuted? What makes Sen. Richard Burr’s (R-NC) decision to subpoena Trump Jr. all the more egregious is that he is ostensibly a Republican. And, unfortunately, he is also the current chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

North Carolinians are not pleased with his latest move and the criticism is growing. Wayne King, the deputy chief of staff to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and former vice chairman of the North Carolina GOP, spoke to Breitbart News on Saturday.

The people of North Carolina are very upset about this. They’re very upset about the attack on the president’s family and the attack on the president, and you can’t call it anything else but that…Sen. Burr’s not running again, and his seat will be up in 2022, so there’s not any electoral repercussions [for him], but certainly people are talking about it and they’re very upset about it. I think that’s the reason Sen. Tillis came out so strongly against it, because he knew that that is not supported in North Carolina.

I don’t understand that either. To subpoena a private citizen who’s already appeared before and testified some 25 hours is unbelievable to me. It’s a target to the president’s family. It’s a target to the president. And it’s a problem, it’s a problem in this state, it’s a problem nationally, and the truth of the matter is when Leader McConnell says that the investigation is over, it should be over. We obviously have the Mueller report, which obviously the president was vindicated in that report in my opinion, and now they want to circle back again? It’s unbelievable. We control the U.S. Senate–now we need to act like we control the U.S. Senate.

Rep. Mark Meadows echoed King’s sentiments in a tweet, adding “It’s over. Let it go.”

A second Republican congressman from the state, Rep. Mark Walker tweeted that “Dems are trying to tear down @DonaldTrumps presidency by any means they can. @DonaldTrumpJr has given 25+ hours of testimony and put up with enough crap. Can executive privilege extend to children? Maybe it should! GOP Sens shouldn’t aide this witch hunt on our President.”

And Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) weighed in as well, tweeting “Case closed! The Mueller Report has cleared @DonaldTrump and the dems are now making this all about politics. Let’s move on and get to work on the real issues facing America.

Dr. Greg Murphy, a congressional candidate in one of the state’s upcoming special elections tweeted yesterday that, “As I travel #NC03 as a candidate for Congress, conservatives of east NC share my outrage of @SenatorBurr joining forces with the anti-Trump #Resistance to go after @DonaldJTrumpJr, a private citizen, cleared by the Mueller report after testifying 20+ hours. Time to end this madness.”

Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle noted that no North Carolina Republicans were defending Burr. Some have not expressed their opinions publicly yet, but Boyle said:

With the Trump team very fired up about this and demanding lawmakers take a position–Trump, Jr.’s team especially is taking a “with us or against us, no middle ground” approach to this, sources close to him say–it is likely only a matter of time before the rest of the delegation in North Carolina comes out on this issue.

“Our red lines aren’t like Obama’s,” a source close to the first family told Breitbart News. “We actually enforce them.”

What will it take to extinguish the resistance from the left (and I include Sen. Burr in this category)?

The release of documents and…some indictments.

President Donald J. Trump presents the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Tiger Woods Monday, May 6, 2019, in the Rose Garden of the White House. (Official White House Photo by Shealah Craighead)

God takes care of fools and drunks and your (not so) humble scribe, certainly qualifies on both counts. When Her Majesty and I were searching for a place to plant our flag, we ended up buying a little cottage on Lake Logan Martin near Talladega (Ricky Bobby!). We bought the house in the middle of June not realizing that during the winter, Alabama Power drops the lake level to do maintenance on the dam and for other reasons.

Most of the folks at my end of the lake either beach their boats or put them in storage because of this. Our dock however, has water year-round, meaning I can float a boat 12 months a year, while some of my neighbors can’t. God Takes care of fools and drunks, right? At this point I wouldn’t blame you for asking, “Are you going somewhere with this Ford?” Please bear with me.

This last Monday, President Donald Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Tiger Woods in the White House Rose Garden. Predictably as with all things remotely related to Donald Trump, the naysayers were out in force to diminish this wonderful celebration of achievement and redemption (more on the redemption later). Two of my fellow RedStaters have written about some of this vitriol here and here. Please have a look.

This article however, is about forgiveness and redemption. Tiger Woods and I are a lot alike—well, except that he’s tall & rangy, while I’m short & fat (but I’m slow too). He’s earned a large fortune; Me? Not so much. He has an engaging personality, while I often come across like a rhino with hemorrhoids. He’s a Universe-Level Golfer. When I show up to play, the greens keepers start cursing violently, fellow golfers laugh uncontrollably and the Beer Babes call for reinforcements.

Other than that, we’re a lot alike—really. Both of us have had some great years and some down decades. The down times, have often been self inflicted, usually because of a refusal to keep the promises that form the basis for any enduring relationship between a man, a woman and their children. In Tiger’s case, there were also some injuries—injuries that resulted in a couple incidents with the law because of misuse of pain medication.

I’m not going to recite a litany of Woods’ “sins,” for the simple reason that I’d have to confess all my own and RedState has a word count limit. Suffice it to say, between conduct issues and injuries, Woods and I were on the bench for a long while, he as a player and sponsoree, I as a Soldier and father.

But Tiger Woods wouldn’t quit. He climbed back up the steep pyramid of Golf and through dint of hard work and determination, won the Masters and was honored by the President. There are those who would continue to denigrate him and refuse to forgive his previous conduct. Her Majesty and I are not among them. How could we be? How could I be? If there is no forgiveness and redemption, then I would be in a world of hurt and still estranged from my beautiful daughters. Her Majesty and I will continue to pray for Woods and his path back to the light. If we cannot see Tiger Woods as worthy of forgiveness and redemption, than how can we be worthy of such?

Media That Once Accused 47 Republicans of Violating the Logan Act Now Says John Kerry Is In the Clear

Westlake Legal Group JohnKerry-620x310 Media That Once Accused 47 Republicans of Violating the Logan Act Now Says John Kerry Is In the Clear Tom Cotton the washington post The New York Times Politics Politico Michael Flynn logan act John Kerry Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats CNN

A little shot and chaser action this morning for you.

President Trump caused a bit of a kerfuffle this week in the media because he dared to suggest that John Kerry, who violated every aspect of the Logan Act with his interactions with Iran, should be prosecuted for his crimes. As I pointed out in my previous piece, I personally think the Logan Act is garbage and would be found unconstitutional if pursued, but that didn’t stop the Obama administration from using it as a pretext to target Michael Flynn. It also didn’t stop the media from suggesting 47 Republicans Senators should be prosecuted under it for their opposition to the Iran deal.

So what’s changed?

Here’s CNN back in 2015.

Forty-seven Senate Republicans may have broken the law this week. But no one’s losing any sleep over it.

Pundits and legal scholars are raising questions over whether Sen. Tom Cotton and the 46 Senate Republicans violated the Logan Act when they penned a letter to Iran’s leaders on Monday, undercutting President Barack Obama’s efforts to negotiate a nuclear agreement with those same leaders. The law, passed in 1799, forbids any U.S. citizen — acting without official U.S. authority — from influencing “disputes or controversies” involving the U.S. and a foreign government.

Now, to be fair, CNN was at least living in reality enough that they admitted no prosecution was likely. In fact, they went so far as to lay out why the law probably wouldn’t hold up. Those were simpler times. But they spun the whole thing as “of course Tom Cotton and others are guilty, but they’ll get off on the technical faults of the law.”

We saw similar pieces from The Washington Post, Politico, and The Guardian, among many others. The thing to notice here is that the media started and instigated the conversation about Republicans breaking the Logan Act, even as most of the article belatedly admitted it wouldn’t stand up to constitutional scrutiny.
Fast forward to 2017 and we saw numerous articles referencing the Logan Act as legitimate in pursuit of charges against Michael Flynn. See here, here, and here.

Here’s The New York Times letting us know why Trump should “fear” the Logan Act and that he certainly broke it.

That leads us to this week, where the media all the sudden decided not only is the Logan Act not worth talking about, it’s crazy sauce to even suggest that John Kerry be prosecuted under it. Instead of doing speculative pieces as they’ve done for Republicans for years, they immediately started to push out the “fact-checks” to provide direct cover. This example via CNN.

Since the act’s creation, correspondence and interaction between Americans — lawmakers, former lawmakers, and citizens alike — has become increasingly common.

It’s also common for former secretaries of states and diplomats to stay in touch with their counterparts around the world.

Last year, before the administration decided to pull out of the deal, the Boston Globe reported that Kerry was taking part in meetings with big players in Iran, meetings which were promptly criticized by the Trump administration. However, last October, Kerry told reporters that he had not met with Iranians since the US pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal in May 2018 and had seen Iran’s foreign minister at a few international security meetings.

Trump alleged that Kerry “is talking to Iran and has been. He’s had many meetings and phone calls and he’s telling him what to do.”

But Matt Summers, a spokesman for Kerry, said in a statement that Trump’s claim “is simply wrong, end of story.”

Why would you quote John Kerry’s spokesman in a fact-check? The author goes on to let us know that because John Kerry said so, he certainly didn’t actually violate the Logan Act, even though she actually quotes him as admitting to meeting with the Iranians before Trump pulled out of the Iran deal.

The Washington Posts resident Democratic moutpiece also made the same case, using John Kerry’s spokesman as evidence in a fact-check. He then goes on to spin the whole thing as misconduct by Trump for suggesting such a prosecution.

Look, the point here isn’t to say that John Kerry actually should be convicted under the Logan Act. I wouldn’t hold up but perhaps we should make him a test case? Regardless, the overall point here is the vastly different media reactions. When it’s Republicans, we get lots of op-eds and hard news pieces full of “well, maybe they did break the law” speculation. When it’s John Kerry we get nothing until President Trump brings it up, then we get “fact-checks” exonerating Kerry and chastisement of the President for even suggesting it. This despite the fact that the media have suggested use of the very same law multiple times to target Republicans.

It’s absurd. Can we all just come to an agreement that we aren’t going to bring up this ridiculous law anymore for political reasons? The problem is that the mainstream media would never play by consistent rules even if they existed. The next time they can, the Logan Act will undoubtedly be in vogue to suggest again. Mark it down.

Catholic Church Invites Louis Farrakhan, It Went About As Well As You’d Expect

Westlake Legal Group louis-farrakhan-saviors-day-speech-2019-620x344 Catholic Church Invites Louis Farrakhan, It Went About As Well As You’d Expect Social Justice racist Politics Michael Pfleger Louis Farrakhan Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Crazy Chicago CBS Catholic Church anti-semite

A Catholic Church in Chicago decided to invite noted anti-Semite, racist, and Democratic party icon Louis Farrakhan to speak. It went about as well as you’d expect it to go.

CBS Chicago reports on the ordeal.

Days after being banned from Facebook, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is fighting back with some help from Father Michael Pfleger, and while denying he is anti-Semitic, he claimed, “I’m here to separate the good Jews from the Satanic Jews.”

During a speech Thursday night at St. Sabina, Pfleger asked everyone to stream Farrakhan’s appearance live on social media.

Pfleger welcomed a packed church before introducing his invited guest.

Ah yes, the rare not anti-Semitic individual who just refers to Jews as “Satanic.” Makes sense.

The priest of this church is apparently quite the character and fancies himself some kind of social justice warrior.

The outspoken Catholic priest said he extended his pulpit to the controversial Nation of Islam leader on principle.

“It is dangerous to me when we begin to stop free speech and seek to silence prophetic voices,” Pfleger said.

It’s nice to know he thinks an evil man like Farrakhan is a prophetic voice. Why this “priest” is allowed to even have Farrakhan come speak is beyond comprehension.

Pfleger, even after Farrakhan went full racist from the pulpit, was unrepentant and defiant.

Yes, because if anything symbolizes love and justice, it’s entertaining and promoting a rabid anti-Semitic, homophobic, racist like Louis Farrakhan. I’m not sure what reality this guy is living in but it’s not the current one. Chicago is one weird place.

The official Catholic leadership in the city did condemn the action.

“The event involving Minister Louis Farrakhan at St. Sabina Parish is not sponsored by the Archdiocese of Chicago. Cardinal Cupich was not consulted before Fr. Pfleger announced the event.

The framers of our Constitution included freedom of speech in the First Amendment because they knew that it was essential to a healthy democracy. Without this sacred right, injustice goes unchecked. This is precisely why it must never be abused.

There is no place in American life for discriminatory rhetoric of any kind. At a time when hate crimes are on the rise, when religious believers are murdered in their places of worship, we cannot countenance any speech that dehumanizes persons on the basis of ethnicity, religious belief, economic status or country of origin. We are all part of the human family, and we owe it to one another, our children — and our creator — to act that way.”

It sounds like Pfleger needs to be relieved of his duties to me.

The media are of course amazingly silent on all this. Imagine if a noted white supremacist spoke at a Catholic institution. I have a feeling that’d make CNN’s lineup. Farrakhan is treated differently though because he’s so intertwined with Democrat party politics. To go after him is to denounce a ton of prominent Democrat figures and we can’t have that can we?

One thing I know is that Farrakhan is a garbage human being that deserves every ounce of criticism he gets.

Joe diGenova: DOJ IG Has ‘Concluded That The Final Three FISA Extensions Were Illegally Obtained’

Westlake Legal Group obama-comey-620x413 Joe diGenova: DOJ IG Has ‘Concluded That The Final Three FISA Extensions Were Illegally Obtained’ Mueller Investigation Kathleen Kavalec John Solomon Joe diGenova Front Page Stories FISA Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption donald trump democrats Christopher Steele Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power

Former U.S. District Court Judge Joe diGenova appeared on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” Thursday evening and made an extraordinary claim. He said the DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, has “concluded that the final three FISA extensions were illegally obtained.”

He added, “The only question now is whether or not the first FISA warrant was illegally obtained…As a result of those disclosures from John Solomon today, which he was unaware of, the Bureau hid those memos from Horowitz. As a result of that, they are doing some additional work on the first FISA. It may be that all four FISAs will have been obtained illegally.”

DiGenova is referring to two bombshell reports from The Hill’s John Solomon this week. The first, entitled “Steele’s Stunning Pre-FISA Confession: Informant Needed To Air Trump Dirt Before Election” discussed an October 2016 meeting between Christopher Steele and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec.

In Kavalec’s written account of the meeting, which took place ten days before the FBI submitted their first FISA application, she wrote that Steele admitted his work was political and that “Steele’s client is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8.” She also wrote “You may already have this information but wanted to pass it on just in case.” In her handwritten notes, Kavalec quoted Steele as saying he was “managing four priorities — Client needs, FBI, WashPo/NYT, source protection.” She understood the man and his agenda after only one brief meeting.

Solomon’s second article, entitled “FBI’s Steele Story Falls Apart: False Intel And Media Contacts Were Flagged Before FISA,” provides further details about Kavalec’s meeting with Steele. For example, He told her, “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami.” She wrote, “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”

In her typed summary, Kavalec wrote that Steele told her the Russians had constructed a “technical/human operation run out of Moscow targeting the election” that recruited emigres in the United States to “do hacking and recruiting.”

Solomon wrote:

It is almost certain the FBI knew of Steele’s contact with State and his partisan motive. That’s because former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland says she instructed her staff to send the information they got from Steele to the bureau immediately and to cease contact with the informer because “this is about U.S. politics, and not the work of — not the business of the State Department, and certainly not the business of a career employee who is subject to the Hatch Act.”

Even if the FBI didn’t get Kavalec’s memo, it is just as implausible that the bureau couldn’t figure out, during the many hours that its agents spent with Steele, what Kavalec divined in a few short minutes: He was political, inaccurate, spinning wild theories and talking to the media.

The memos were obtained this week through a FOIA request by Citizens United. The FBI had retroactively classified this material for obvious reasons. It’s impossible to know to whom Kavalec sent the memos because the FBI redacted the names of the recipients, the subject line and the attachments. Solomon said that only three sentences were unredacted.

At any rate, the documents were sent to Horowitz this week. DiGenova said the inspector general had been unaware of them.

Horowitz began his investigation of the FBI’s FISA Court application process and related activities last March and his final report is expected in the next three or four weeks.

The Left Now Angry With Trump Over…Sending an Uplifting Letter to a Cancer Patient

Westlake Legal Group WTF-face-620x344 The Left Now Angry With Trump Over…Sending an Uplifting Letter to a Cancer Patient Trump Derangement Syndrome Politics patient Melania Trump letter leftists Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats cancer Allow Media Exception

When you’re getting angry over the fact that President Donald Trump is doing something as good and uplifting as sending a cancer patient an uplifting letter, then it’s time to take a step back and look at yourself. At least, that’s the advice I’d like to give the leftists currently spilling salt by the truckloads over this.

As reported by CNN White House reporter Betsy Klein, Trump sent the letter to a cancer patient whom he said was battling her cancer with “uncommon courage” and that he and Melania were inspired by her “strength and spirit.”

“Always remember that there are many people in your life who love you and support you. We are all on Team Lillie!” read the letter from the Trumps.

As the Daily Caller pointed out, the left immediately jumped on the letter to point out nasty things about it, namely that Melania’s handwriting looks a lot like her husband’s.

Director Robby Starbuck assembled a collage of responses to Klein’s tweet saying nasty and ugly things about Trump’s letter, noting that it’s solid proof that Trump Derangement Syndrome is indeed real.

The sad part of this is that this is supposed to be one of those moments where we all rally around the cancer patient known as “Lillie.” Instead, angry leftists want to make this about their hatred of a Republican president.

I’m daily inclined to believe that there is some sort of shared derangement about Trump when he can’t even breath out of his left nostril without someone calling for his job over the fact that he didn’t breath out of his right nostril. A kind note to a cancer patient should have been an easy thing for us all to get behind, but even that is now divisive.

This is going to be a long presidency for some people, and I hate to see how much farther into the mire of their psychotic hatred these leftists will fall by the time Trump leaves the White House.

Jerry Nadler Shows That Either Irony or His Brain Are Dead or Possibly Both

It is difficult today to point to the most ridiculous Democrat in Congress. We have at least two, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who are no-sh**, dyed-in-the-wool, Jew-hating, terrorist sympathizers. We have Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who can barely tell her ass from a hot rock but who, apparently, is the thought leader for progressive democrats. We have Eric Swalwell who actually seems to looking forward to killing gun owners if they resist confiscation. Adam Schiff, a man who leaked classified material in a shameless fashion while ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, is permitted on cable news (okay, it was CNN but that still counts) and pontificate about integrity. But clawing his way up to the top of the heap is Fat Jerry Nadler.

No one has ever accused Nadler of being smart or astute, because those would be false accusations. He’s a ridiculous little apparatchik who would be much more at home in the Politburo of some failed socialist state or the New York state legislature (but I repeat myself) than chairing a committee in the US House of Representatives. Did I say ridiculous? You have doubts? See Exhibit A:

Be that as it may, here he is in action. Apparently, he’s talking about Rudy Giuliani’s abortive trip the Ukraine.

The story there is that Giuliani had planned a trip to Ukraine to encourage authorities to look into the activities of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and Joe Biden’s actions, as vice president, to pressure Ukrainian authorities to ignore what seems like epic fraud.

Here, Nadler, who looks like his blind barber just trimmed him with a WeedEater and with his pants tucked snugly in his armpits is tossed a typical sycophantic, softball question from NBC transcriptionist, Manu Raju. If you’ll recall, Raju is the chump who got punked by Adam Schiff with the story that Donald Trump, Jr. was given a heads-up that Wikileaks was going to publish some hacked emails (see HAHAHA! CNN Gets Burned On Fake Story About Donald Trump Jr. And Wikileaks Email–UPDATED).

First, there is nothing wrong with what Giuliani was going to do and the fact that the Democrats are having a cow over it shows their level of fear.

What Giuliani was engaged in is something that the FBI, were it to take some time out from acting as an in-kind contribution to the DNC and start pretending it cared about law enforcement, should be doing.

Secondly, the Obama administration had no problem at all using a document that was based on Russian government sources, compiled by a British intelligence asset, to start an investigation of the Trump campaign. They had no problem using British and possibly Australian (though both Australians involved seem to be British MI6 assets) to try to get members of the Trump campaign to compromise themselves.

Nadler’s real objection is that the Trump administration seems ready and willing to insist that even prominent Democrats have to obey the law and they know what that would mean.

WATCH: Pro-Lifers Prove They’re More Energized and Numerous than Pro-Abortionists During Rally In Brian Sims Neighborhood

When a rally is planned, it’s usually put on with days and even weeks of advance notice. However, when a pro-life rally was planned in response to Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Sims after he had harassed and attempted to doxx teenage girls who were praying in front of a Planned Parenthood, people couldn’t wait to get together.

According to the Daily Wire, over 1,000 people gathered from all over the country to take part in the pro-life rally in front of the same Planned Parenthood where Sims harassed people. Matt Walsh, who spoke at the rally, noted that this kind of energy will never be seen at a pro-abortion rally, a group he calls “a sad and lethargic thing.”

Former Planned Parenthood exec Abby Johnson, the author of the book “Unplanned,” also spoke at the rally that the Daily Wire described as comprised mostly of women.

“It is time to refuse to ‘choose.’ We will not choose between one or the other. We will respect both women and their children, and their femininity, and their reproduction, and their fertility. And we will continue to do it until clinics like this no longer exist, and every woman who walks into a physician’s office is actually treated with love and respect and care,” she said according to the Daily Wire.

In fact, every speaker at the rally, with the exception of Matt Walsh, was a woman according to LifeNews.

The mother of the two bullied teens also showed up to say a few words to the crowd as well.

“God is moving in incredible ways and we’re just along for the ride; we are standing on the side of angels,” she added.

The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles also showed up to cover the rally. He noted that many showed up, but noticeably missing was Sims who had apparently been invited to the rally in order to have a conversation with pro-lifers. However, as Knowles pointed out, Sims has no interest in actually talking with anyone. Without the ability to bully or intimidate, Sims was a no-show.
