Hillary Clinton Should Run in 2020

Hillary Clinton is back at it, claiming the 2016 election was “stolen” from her.

The irony of course being that Hillary Clinton once warned that questioning the electoral process was a grave threat to our democracy. The media dutifully followed and spent the better part of two weeks clutching their pearls over the idea that Trump might not respect the results of the 2016 election.

Since her defeat shortly after that tweet, Hillary has done her best to remain relevant by constantly not respecting the results of the 2016 election. Given that tickets to her latest speaking tour have collapsed to $2 per person, it’s not really going that well, but she’s still showing up and talking nonetheless.

Here’s her latest comments per The Daily Caller.

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee spoke with her husband at “An Evening With The Clintons” event.

“You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” she said, according to CNN.

Oddly enough, not once I have heard a major media figure claim that Clinton is endangering democracy with her claims. Funny how the standards change, right?

The renewed push to claim the election was stolen from her is largely driven by the release of the Mueller report. In reality, the report does nothing to support her deflections about her loss. No one in the Trump campaign (or any American period) colluded with the Russians. The DNC emails had no real affect on her campaign either, as her polling actually improved after that episode.

Here’s the thing though. If she really believes this, then she should run in 2020. If she lost in 2016 on a technicality caused by the Russians, then there’s no reason for her not to get a do-over. I for one fully support her jumping into the race. I’m sure Democrats would welcome her with open arms, right?

Of course, Hillary knows they wouldn’t accept her because deep down, the Democrats know the election was not stolen. She really was just that bad of a candidate.

There’s essentially no actual case to be made that blue collar workers in PA, MI, and WI turned against Hillary over Russians putting memes on Facebook or John Podesta’s ho-hum musings being reported. She lost because she took for granted a part of the country she felt was locked up. The fact that her policies would harm many of those people also played a major role.

Instead of admitting her flaws, she continues to flail around on the public stage and claim the election was stolen. It’s sad and comical, especially given the rash of Democrat politicians who continue to claim elections were stolen from them, namely Stacey Abrams.

But again, if Hillary really believes everything she’s saying, then she has a duty to run in 2020. Let’s get this started.

[SCREENSHOT FROM TWEET]

 

I must say…this was insane.

Pennsylvania state representative Brian Sims recently thought he had a great idea: harass an elderly pro-life lady and document it.

#NotAGreatIdea

In an 8-minute video posted to Periscope, Brian walks up to the lady, who he excoriates as “an old white lady” (Say it ain’t so!), and just acts like a…well, it’s a word I can’t write here.

Perhaps you have some words you’d like to suggest.

Here are some of Brian’s:

“Today’s protester — now, she is an old white lady who is going to try to avoid showing you her face. But the same laws, luckily, that protect her from being out here also protect me from showing you who she is. And so my hope is that you’ll donate $100 for every extra hour that this woman is out here telling people what is right for their bodies.”

Brian quizzes the lady based on a complete misunderstanding of the pro-life position:

“How many children have you clothed today?”

This is a real numbskull move. People, of course, aren’t pro-life because they wish to avidly dress kids. They’re pro-life…’cause o’ life.

Otherwise, to speak Brian’s language, if he’s against the death penalty, how many murderers has he clothed today?

Was he walkin’ around with Underoos earlier that day, doin’ a solid for nekkid violent felons?

The dumbest thing one can do in a political debate is to not address the opposition’s actual cause.

Apropos, there’s a bumper sticker attempting to appeal to pro-death-penalty voters:

“Why do we kill people who kill people to teach people that killing people is wrong?”

The answer is: We don’t. Not to people in favor of the death penalty. Rather, we kill murderers to punish them for murdering.

Brian Sims wanted to punish a senior citizen for being pro-life, and he did just that.

How did this guy get elected, and how does Pennsylvania replace him with someone civil and respectful of the citizenry, not to mention his elders? Plus, he’s white — who needs those people?

Really, his behavior isn’t that shocking — he’s also the guy who did this.

Way to go, Democrats.

BREAKING: Democrats To Hold Barr In Contempt

Westlake Legal Group barr-spying-did-occur-620x334 BREAKING: Democrats To Hold Barr In Contempt william barr Special Counsel Mueller report House Front Page Stories democrats Congress Breaking Allow Media Exception

Screengrab from https://twitter.com/Uncle_Jimbo/status/1116056133091852289

Blowing past a 9 a.m. deadline to deliver the unredacted portions of the Special Counsel’s report, House Democrats are keeping their vow to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt.

The ongoing battle between the Justice Department and House Democrats has been escalating in the weeks since the report was released. Via POLITICO:\

The announcement comes as Democrats have argued that the redacted version Barr made public last month is insufficient to consider a potential congressional response to Mueller’s findings, particularly his evidence that President Donald Trump attempted to thwart the investigation.

The committee launched its own obstruction of justice investigation against the president earlier this year. The contempt citation explicitly mentions that probe, which is also centered on allegations of “public corruption and other abuses of power” by the president.

“Attorney General Barr failed to comply with the committee’s request for these documents and thereby has hindered the committee’s constitutional, oversight, and legislative functions,” the citation states.

The House Judiciary Committee is announcing in the citation that it plans to push ahead with its own investigation of alleged obstruction by President Donald Trump.

The contempt citation also references the Justice Department’s long-standing policy against indicting a sitting president, noting that Mueller accepted those guidelines in declining to charge Trump with obstruction of justice.

“Congress is therefore the only body able to hold the president to account for improper conduct in our tripartite system, and urgently requires the subpoenaed material to determine whether and how to proceed with its constitutional duty to provide checks and balances on the president and executive branch,” the citation states. “Otherwise, the president remains insulated from legal consequences and sits above the law.”

This is the second time the Barr has refused to meet Democrats’ demands. Last week, he refused to appear before the committee, citing the committee’s plan to have its members’ counsel also question the Attorney General.

This frame grab from video provided by Televisa, shows migrants bound for the U.S.-Mexico border waiting on a bridge that stretches over the Suchiate River, connecting Guatemala and Mexico, in Tecun Uman, Guatemala, Friday, Oct. 19, 2018. The gated entry into Mexico via the bridge has been closed. The U.S. president has made it clear to Mexico that he is monitoring its response. On Thursday he threatened to close the U.S. border if Mexico didn’t stop the caravan. (Televisa via AP)

 

Migrants have quickly learned that their chances of gaining entry to the United States or remaining in the country once they’ve arrived are far better if they are traveling with a child.

Under current law, “the government cannot keep migrant families in holding facilities at the border for more than 72 hours. It must either transfer them to an immigration detention facility suitable for children or release them.”

Migrants are also well aware that, if accompanied by a child, they are less likely to “remain detained and they have a better shot at fending off deportation.”

Because the US currently lacks the facilities to accommodate the unprecedented number of illegals who are entering our country, border agents are forced to allow  “thousands of detained migrants go free each week.”  

The New York Times reports that “Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s three residential family centers — two in southern Texas and one in Pennsylvania — can accommodate 3,326 parents and children.

Accordingly, those who do not have children of their own try to “find” children.

Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo traveled to the southern border to broadcast her program,” Sunday Morning Futures.” She visited the El Paso border crossing which she said is the busiest one.

She reported:

What we saw was just stunning. Children put in incredibly difficult, terrible positions.

We got confirmation that there’s a renting of children program going on in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, where people are renting their kids, giving their kids to people so that they can cross the border, then sending the kids back.

Here’s what the mayor of El Paso told me.

(Relevant segment starts at 6:53 in video below.)

Bartiromo said, “The children are being put into very dangerous situations.”

Mayor Donald Margo responded:

And in some cases, they’re informing me that we may have – rental children – so to speak. That they’re not necessarily the actual families. That they’re bringing these children in.

So, there’s human trafficking. There are some real serious situations that Congress needs to address.

She turned to her guest, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), and asked, “Is Congress going to address it?”

Jordan replied:

Unfortunately, I don’t think the Democrats are going to work with us to do what everyone in this country knows needs to be done. We need to build a border security wall and we need to change our asylum laws. We have said – and the President’s been clear on this – this is a crisis. Finally even some on the left are realizing it’s a crisis. The human trafficking problem, the gang problem, the drug problem, this is a crisis. But we have to do two fundamental things. Change the asylum law and build the border wall. Those two have to happen first and the Democrats just don’t want to go there, because, for them, it’s all about politics and it’s all about getting Trump.

“Because it’s just going to give him another victory. Unbelievable.” said Bartiromo.

Sadly, nothing will be done. The Democrats have focused solely on destroying Trump. They will have no accomplishments to show voters in 2020. Worse, by then (hopefully) every American will be aware of the Democrats’ attempted coup against the President. And they will be exposed for the hypocrites they are.

Rashida Tlaib’s Father Says She Committed Election Fraud

Westlake Legal Group rashida-tlaibs-father-says-she-committed-election-fraud Rashida Tlaib’s Father Says She Committed Election Fraud the daily wire ryan saavedra residency rashida tlaib Politics Israel Hamas Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story election fraud Elabed Detroit News democrats

Yesterday, I posted on Tlaib defending terrorists who were launching hundreds of rockets into Israel. Today, I ran across another interesting story involving her.

Rashida Tlaib’s father claimed in 2010 that she lied on her election affadavit about where she lived in order to qualify for the office she was seeking. Why is something that happened in 2010 just now coming to light? Because the comments were in a Detroit News article that was effectively scrubbed from the internet.

In a March 11, 2010 newspaper article in The Detroit News, Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) father accused her of lying “big-time to get elected” by falsifying her address on an election affidavit.

The details center around a house that Tlaib’s father was part owner of.

He said his daughter misrepresented her residency when she signed an election affidavit in 2008 with the Wayne County Clerk claiming she was a citizen of Detroit.

According to that affidavit, Tlaib claimed she lived at 9123 Rathbone in Detroit. That house is owned in part by her father, Harbi Elabed, and he now says she did not live there and he was only recently made aware that she had claimed so.

“She lied,” Elabed said. “She lied big-time to get elected. I never teach her that way. I teach her the right way. It’s my house. She didn’t live there. She lived in Dearborn in her house with her husband and boy.”

There was apparently a lot of bad blood in the relationship and Tlaib claimed that her father was lying to get back at her. Who’s telling the truth? We’ll probably never know because Tlaib was never made to prove residency despite claims she could. I’d guess any statute of limitations on something like this is long gone and no one in Detroit would prosecute anyway.

Fudging residency to run for office is a favorite pass-time of politicians everywhere. You may recall that AOC faced similar questions that have yet to be resolved (among many others about her campaign finance). Perhaps it’s time for those that run for office to be made to prove this stuff? Seems like a small fail safe to implement given the importance of elections.

Nothing will happen here, but it’s worth exposing nonetheless. A Republican would be grilled on this so we’ll see whether the media finds it even worth mentioning (spoiler: they won’t).

Rep (R) Mike Kelly

As supposed conservatives, we once again appear to be ceding ground to the Democrats when it comes to Federal authorities and responsibilities. Our latest surrender is the “bipartisan” conversation on an “omnibus” infrastructure bill. Those two words in “scare quotes” are meant to do just that—scare you. And you well should be. It’s borderline axiomatic that when politicians start using words like “bipartisan” and “omnibus,” what we really should hear is “unaccountable,” “pork” and “corrupt to the point where the snouts are down in the taxpayer provided trough up to the shoulders.” You can see more of my general thoughts on public corruption here and here. For now, let’s focus on the issue before us.

On Breitbart News Saturday, hosted by Matt Boyle, the subject was that very issue, a massive, multi-trillion dollar infrastructure project. I had some fundamental concerns, beginning with—should the Federal government even being involved in this in the first place? More on that in another piece.

Boyle’s guest, Republican Congressman Mike Kelly explained his novel approach to funding this multi-trillion dollar infrastructure project, now in its initial discussion phase. Rep. Kelly’s approach would supposedly not increase debt, nor would it increase taxes. Hard to believe, right? Rep Kelly proposes selling current Federal debt to fund this multi-trillion dollar expenditure. On the surface, this sounds like a “win-win.” The Federal government sells off debt for cash. It uses said cash to fund a huge program of construction projects…all without increasing taxes. sounds great. Right?

Not so fast folks. Taxation actually can serve as a brake on the propensity of politicians to spend money. Having to explain to the folks who are paying the bills, just why they are spending this money, can sometimes, provide an incentive to politicians to at least try to be somewhat parsimonious (I would hope). Kelly’s idea removes all such constraints. Basically, what he proposes, is a huge trough of money that politicians can spread around to appease various constituencies—with no pain born by the taxpayer…and with no risk at the voting booth. This idea will be nothing more than another opportunity for politicos of all persuasions to “bring home the bacon.” This is akin to a family deeply in debt, using an unexpectedly large tax refund to go on a cruise instead of paying down some of that debt.

The above discussion presupposes that the Federal government should be involved in this business in the first place. Next up; Just why should Federal Government be involved in funding this boondoggle at all?

[SCREENSHOT FROM URL]

 

Do you love your country? If so, then you also don’t mind being poorer. So says Cory “Farticus” Booker (here).

During an appearance on Sunday’s State of the Union, the vegan senator — who seems to believe carnivorism’s days are numbered — explained the connection between patriotism and wanting to give Washington politicians bunches more of your cash:

“We live in a nation with far more patriotism than people are expressing. … [F]olks want the best for the country.”

Thusly, they won’t re-elect Donald Trump, despite a booming economy.

Host Jake Tapper asked Cory how he’d pitch a Democratic president to voters in light of the economic prosperity, to which he replied that there isn’t prosperity.

Let us pause for pandering:

“I’m the only presidential candidate that lives in a low-income inner-city neighborhood. Talk to folks, and they’ll tell you, ‘I have to work two jobs just to try to keep myself in housing. And by the way, that housing doesn’t reflect the dignity of my family.’ Americans are struggling. Their wages are too low, or decades low. For the last four decades, I don’t think they’ve budged that much.”



When Jake pointed out that there has been improvement — in wages and unemployment — which was absent “during the Obama years,” Cory gave the credit to Obama:

“I love that Trump is taking credit for a recovery that started under Obama.”

So which version of Cory is being genuine? Is there prosperity, or is there not?

Who nose. Pick a booker.

Is it just me, or does it seem like this recent batch of Democratic congresspeople was picked at random from people in line at a snow cone stand?

Moving on: Jake asked Cory why voters would wanna put a Democrat in the Oval Office, when all of the 2020 candidates — including him — are pushing for a tax increase.

The senator’s response:

“We live in a nation with far more patriotism than people are expressing. What I mean by that is folks want the best for their country. And they know that if your family doesn’t have a great public school for your kid, if your family does not have great access to healthcare, then we all are suffering as a result of that and often creating greater costs.”

Oookay.

A few thoughts:

  • Public schools stink, not because of a money issue. They stink because they’re not doing a good job of teaching academic subjects at an accelerated level.
  • Great healthcare wasn’t accomplished by Obama’s installed system.
  • If things done wrongly “often [creates] greater costs,” then Congress owes us to do rightly and give us back the difference. Not take more from us.

Cory let Jake know he’s a revolutionary:

“I’m going to run a campaign that speaks to all of America.”

No way! No one’s ever thought of that before! Amazing!

He also taught us this:

“We’re all hurting because we have not designed an economy that invests in each other.”

Ya mean like communism?

How’s this for an idea: Americans love their country because of its liberty. Part of freedom from an oppressive government is financial. One of the reasons people love America is because its citizens can thrive economically, aka keep most of the decent money they work for.

As long as the government funds things a giant portion of Americans oppose, and so long as it shows a staggering inability to exercise discretion in spending and produce quality products efficiently (here), how about we don’t throw more money at the problem? Because the problem, truthfully, is government.

How’s that for patriotism?

President Trump Stirs the Pot By Saying Mueller Should Not Testify Before Fat Jerry Nadler’s Committee

Westlake Legal Group president-trump-stirs-the-pot-by-saying-mueller-should-not-testify-before-fat-jerry-nadlers-committee President Trump Stirs the Pot By Saying Mueller Should Not Testify Before Fat Jerry Nadler’s Committee Special Counsel Robert Mueller Politics Mueller report House Judiciary Committee Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress Allow Media Exception

Earlier today, Rhode Island Democrat David Cicilline announced that special counsel Robert Mueller would testify before the House Judiciary Committee on May 15. (Note, there has been some walk back from this firm date, see below:)

This, as surely as night follows day, caught the attention of President Trump.

And it drew the predictable reaction

(It’s always amusing when people try to use something Trump has said in the past as evidence of something other than Trump said it in the past.)

This is how the New York Times sees it:

That puts the president at odds with the Democrats, and with his own attorney general, William P. Barr.

Actually, Barr’s comment doesn’t “put him a odds” with Trump. Barr never says Mueller will testify, only that he has no objections to it. That does not imply that he feels so strongly on the subject that he cares enough to fight about it.

Whether or not the House has the legal authority to subpoena a temp employee and have them testify on the deliberative process in a particular situation, such as the Mueller report, rather than as part of an impeachment hearing is far from settled. If the administration decided to litigate the issue, it would be some number of months, if not years, before the process played itself out and the House would always run the risk of damaging its authority if the Supreme Court decided that this was a political squabble and not a legal issue or that the House had overreached in demanding testimony on a deliberative and pre-decisional process.

In reality, if Mueller wants to testify on May 15, it is unlikely that anyone is going to care. Trump’s tweet seems like more of his trademark trolling designed to stir the pot and provoke a spittle-flinging rage. And it looks like it will work.

Democrat Rep Who Slobbered on KFC During a Hearing Wants to Arrest Bill Barr Now

Westlake Legal Group democrat-rep-who-slobbered-on-kfc-during-a-hearing-wants-to-arrest-bill-barr-now Democrat Rep Who Slobbered on KFC During a Hearing Wants to Arrest Bill Barr Now steve cohen Sargent at Arms Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats delusional Crazy CNN bill barr Arrest Barr Anderson Cooper

This is clearly a person that should be taken seriously.

A few days ago, Rep. Steve Cohen brought a bucket of KFC into a hearing. He giggled his way through eating it in what was a stunt that was supposed to signify that Bill Barr was “chicken” for not letting the clowns in the Democratic House question him. I can’t imagine why Barr wouldn’t want to cooperate with these morons.

Well, he’s back and this time he’s suggesting that Bill Barr should be arrested and forced to testify before his joke of a committee. That doesn’t sound like something a third world dictator would say at all.

(video is cued up at 0:46 seconds where the remarks occur)

If you watch the video you see Cohen suggest that Barr should be charged with “inherent contempt” and that he wants Congress to dispatch the Sargent at Arms to haul Barr in like a prisoner.

Even CNN’s Anderson Cooper is taken aback by what he’s hearing, knowing it’s idiotic on its face. Cohen goes on to say that Barr is being “utterly contemptuous” and that he’s lied to Congress, neither of which is true. Barr was ready to come testify until Jerry Nadler decided to play games by having a team of lawyers question the Attorney General instead of the Congressional members who have the constitutional right to do so. This was obviously done to try to grill Barr to the point of him falling into a perjury trap.

Being that Barr is not an idiot, he told Jerry Nadler to go pound sand over his testimony request until he’s willing to negotiate in good faith. Now, we’ve got a House member suggesting he be arrested.

It’s pretty ridiculous but it’s also dangerous. The fact that so many Democrats are this comfortable with criminalizing political disagreements is an awful indicator of where we are headed and what extent these people are willing to go through to gain power. Nothing appears to be off limits. I can’t say it’s surprising though, given what we are finding out about how the Obama administrations targeted the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

This is one of the reasons big government is such a terrible thing. Whether it’s out of control bureaucracies or Congressional members role-playing as tyrants, the more power these people have, the worse off the country is.

I’ll end by pointing out the hypocrisy that’s evident. Had a Republican suggested arresting Eric Holder and hauling him before Congress back during the Obama administration, the media and Democrats would have lost their minds over it. These are the same people who clutch their pearls when Trump slaps at the media as “fake news,” something that logically does nothing to restrict press rights. Yet, they are completely comfortable with a House member suggesting the Attorney General should be put in handcuffs for no justifiable reason at all. It goes to show just how worthless the press are when it comes to protecting the freedoms and norms they claim to care so much about.

When push comes to shove, they will always side with their partisan narrative.

MSNBC Host Provides the Most Hilarious Explanation of the Economy in History

One of the major problems confronting the Democrats in 2020 is the state of the economy. Barring some deus ex machina, President Trump is going to campaign for reelection within the context of a significant economic boom. The stock market is booming. Inflation remains low. Real wages are up. Labor force participation is up. Unemployment is at near historic lows. Ordinarily, people would be happy for a great economy, but, with the Democrats, good news for America is bad news for their party.

Their most immediate problem is how to rationalize the economy under Trump to the economy overseen by Obama. At that point, the conventional wisdom among Democrats and professional economists was that high unemployment, low labor force participation, and stagnant wages were the new normal.

Now MSNBC “personality” Chris Hayes has his own theory to explain the difference:

Everyone who called for austerity got it wrong and caused harm

Everyone who scaremongered about the deficit got it wrong and caused harm

Everyone who wrote about the “skills gap” got it wrong and caused harm

Everyone who kept warning about inflation got it wrong and caused harm

Lots of regular people – critics, bloggers, gadflies, etc were able to see this but the commanding heights of the econ/policy/political worlds either could not or would not.

Or, an even less charitable interpretation: they didn’t get it wrong at all. They didn’t want full employment, they didn’t want wage growth and empowered workers and they certainly didn’t want that happening under a Democratic president.

I mean, years of the titans of industry whining about the skills mismatch, how they can’t find good workers, and chin-stroking conferences about labor force participation, and columns about how it was workers’ own fault, on and on and on, all just garbage.

Yep. That’s exactly what happened. Tens of thousands of American businesses decided they’d go out of business rather than let Obama’s economic plan be a success. Millions of Americans decided they’d just sit at home and not work to screw the black guy.

This is ridiculous.

Not to say that Obama didn’t inherit an economic mess, he did. But, like FDR’s New Deal, Obama tried to use a financial crisis to fundamentally change the US economy and to increase government influence. He reduced the workforce by nearly 9 million by liberalizing rules for disability insurance and did this as much to try to create a new class of benefit recipients who would reliably vote Democrat as for any other reason. But the reason that the economy has taken off under Trump is because both consumers and employers feel more secure in their finances and have more confidence to make major investments and purchases. Putting the brakes on federal rule-making and rolling back rules that inhibit growth have also been a factor. Getting out of the way as oil/gas exploration and extraction has boomed has been a major stimulus to the national economy.

More to the detail of Hayes nonsense. Obama was not burdened with any “austerity” measures

Neither has Trump benefited from an increase in inflation:

A lot of the “skills gap” was utter bullsh** pushed by the Chamber of Commerce in its eagerness to bring in more cheap H1B visa recipients to replace American workers. Under Obama, most American STEM graduates didn’t work in that field but no one in the White House ever challenged the narrative because Obama, too, wanted cheap foreign workers and Americans on the dole.

I have no doubt that this will not become a full-fledged scandal, probably rating its own special counsel, by the time the election season is in full swing. There is probably a Michael Moore movies in the making about this conspiracy. But most people are going to see this for what it is, a dimwitted cable talking head trying to rationalize away a very good economy.
