Nikki Haley Lights up Kamala Harris Over Her Cringeworthy Defense of Joe Biden on Ukraine

Attention may finally be turning toward the question of just exactly what was Hunter Biden doing in Ukraine and China while his father Joe was Vice President and point man for the Obama administration on those countries.

But Democrats really don’t want you to hear it.

Even Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who is running for president in the primary against Joe Biden, came to his defense in a cringeworthy moment when questioned by the media as to what she thought. Would she approve of her Vice President’s son or daughter serving on the board of a foreign oil company as Hunter did?

“As far as I’m concerned, leave Joe Biden alone,” she said, claiming it’s a distraction (from the real goal of getting President Donald Trump). How dare people look at what Hunter Biden was doing in Ukraine and China while his dad was influencing critical decisions on those two countries!

One shouldn’t ask questions about the propriety of things like this:

Or why Hunter Biden would be appointed to a board of an energy company in Ukraine, receiving $50,000/month when he has no experience in the field.

Harris’ defense of Biden was just too much for former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

Right on the money.

Democrats want to distract from the real issue, which is that they have countenanced this kind of thing, both with Biden and with the Clintons.

If a candidate running for president doesn’t see the problem with it and just wants to dismiss it, maybe that person really shouldn’t be running for president.

Good on Haley for calling it out.

Trump, GOP Call for Action on Adam Schiff Fabricating Trump Quotes

Westlake Legal Group smug-schiff Trump, GOP Call for Action on Adam Schiff Fabricating Trump Quotes Uncategorized Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress

Adam Schiff, D-Calif., ranking member of the House Committee on Intelligence, pauses while speaking during a media availability after a closed-door meeting of the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Two weeks after President Donald Trump blocked its full release, the House Intelligence Committee published on Saturday, Feb. 24, a partially blacked-out version of a classified Democratic memo aiming to counter a GOP narrative that the FBI and Justice Department conspired against Trump as they investigated his ties to Russia. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)

On Thursday, during a live Committee hearing concerning President Donald Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) fabricated Trump quotes. Schiff pretended to read from a transcript of the Trump phone call with the president of the Ukraine and made up several false things.

Republicans are now taking action.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) introduced a motion in the House to censure Schiff which he explains during an appearance on Fox News. Biggs also noted how another one of the Democrats’ claims, that the conversation shouldn’t have been put on a secure server, fails. There was classified information on the call since Trump was discussing other nations with the Ukrainian president. That type of information, Biggs observed, is always classified. That in itself would justify putting it on the secure server in addition to the justifiable concern that the Trump administration has had about leaks.

President Trump also called on Schiff to resign.

According to PJ Media, Trump said that Schiff had “made up & twisted words into my call with the Ukrainian President to make it look like I did something very wrong.”

The president tweeted, Schiff “then boldly read those words to Congress and millions of people, defaming & libeling me. He must resign from Congress!”

He literally made up quotes from a conversation President Trump had with the leader of another nation, thereby not only undermining the President’s position at home but abroad too. America’s position is now weakened because of a) the content of Schiff’s lies and b) the publication of the transcript of a supposedly confidential conversation between two heads-of-state — a transcript that had to be released because of Rep. Schiff’s lies. Other leaders will now think twice before telling the president anything important for fear it might be leaked by Democrats in Congress and their allies in the CIA.

While claiming to care about Trump’s actions, Schiff is actually the one who put our national security in greater peril.

Schiff not only made those comments on Thursday, but he doubled down on the lies today on ABC with George Stephanopoulos, again claiming that Trump tried “to coerce that leader to manufacture dirt on his opponent and interfere in our election” which happened “at a time when the president is withholding hundreds of millions of dollars in assistance to Ukraine,” none of which was true.

And of course, that’s not the only problem when it comes to Schiff in this matter. He claimed to Stephanopoulos that once he found out about the complaint he went public and called for its release. But he only went public in the past week. He’s known about the complaint and may have even seen it since at least August 12. What he told Stephanopoulos today about that was untrue.

So what did Adam Schiff know and when did he know it?

Schiff has a long history falsehoods. It’s long past time that he be called on it.

Adam Schiff Lies His Head Off To George Stephanopolous About Trump Ukraine Phone Call

Westlake Legal Group Adam-Schiff-3 Adam Schiff Lies His Head Off To George Stephanopolous About Trump Ukraine Phone Call Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post fake news donald trump democrats Congress biden

At a hearing looking into the phone call that President Donald Trump had with the Ukrainian president, Rep. Adam Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, completely fabricated what was said on the call.

Today, George Stephanopolous called Schiff out on ‘This Week’ for making up quotes about the call. But instead of apologizing for doing something completely improper, Schiff used the television appearance on ABC as another opportunity to spread more lies.

Trump, for example, didn’t ask the Ukrainian president “seven times” for anything.

Ryan Saavedra of The Daily Wire called Schiff out on his untruths.

How ridiculous that is what Democrats want to impeach Trump over.

So therefore it couldn’t have acted as pressure on Ukraine or as a quid pro quo. And it’s particularly ironic that Schiff tries to push that point when that’s exactly what Joe Biden did on video by his own admission, withhold aid in order to get Ukraine to do what he wanted.

Stephanopolous makes a great point, if the phone call is as damning as Schiff claims, why would he need to make things up?

There’s another problem with what Schiff said. Schiff says in the first video above that when he found out about the whistleblower complaint being withheld from Congress, he went public and scheduled a meeting with the Director of National Intelligence to force the complaint to be released.

But we already know that he was aware of the complaint since at least August 12 and may have had it since then. Here’s part of the letter showing he was apprised and there was an attachment (the complaint?).

So why did he sit on it since then and then try to claim now that as soon as he found out he went public?

This whole spiel he just gave Stephanopolous was untrue.

Former Ukrainian PM Calls For Investigation Into Hunter Biden

Westlake Legal Group joe-biden-e1567704712668 Former Ukrainian PM Calls For Investigation Into Hunter Biden Uncategorized Ukraine Joe Biden hunter biden Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats collusion biden

While Democrats have been all over the Ukrainian question in the effort to claim President Donald Trump did something wrong by inquiring about the investigation into Hunter Biden, Democrats have been less eager to talk about any investigation of the younger Biden.

Questions have been raised by many about the position which Hunter held on the board of Burisma and for which he was reportedly paid $50,000/month while his father was the point man for the Obama administration on Ukraine.

From NY Post:

By coincidence, Hunter had landed this cushy gig in a foreign country only a few months after the Obama ­administration began dispatching his father, Joe, to the very same foreign country on a regular basis.

There was, of course, absolutely nothing in Hunter’s résumé to indicate that he would be a valuable addition to foreign energy interest. He didn’t speak the language, and he had no particular expertise in the energy industry. Oh, he did have one thing, though: his last name.

Those questions were heightened by a video of Joe Biden in 2018 admitting that he pressured Ukraine when he was Vice President, saying he would have the Obama administration withhold aid unless they fired the prosecutor. The prosecutor was reportedly investigating Burisma. He was in fact fired.

The fired prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, gave a recent affidavit to an Austrian court that was released by John Solomon of The Hill. In that affidavit, Shokin claims, “I was forced out because I was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings.” He claims that the then-President, Petro Poroshenko forced him to resign because Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid for Ukraine until he was removed from office.

Democrats argue there was no evidence that Hunter Biden did anything wrong. The subsequent prosecutor installed after that pressure, Yuri Lutsenko, said that he didn’t find anything on Hunter.

But now the investigation may be re-opened, according to new reports.

The former PM of Ukraine is saying that Hunter Biden must be investigated to make sure that he complied with the law. “It’s a fact (his directorship and fees) and not made up. It should be investigated so that the ‘i’s can be dotted and the ‘t’s crossed,” Mykola Azarov told Reuters.

And that’s not all. A present official within the government has also said he expects the case involving Burisma to be re-opened.

From The Daily Beast:

Valentin Nalyvaichenko, a former head of Ukraine’s domestic intelligence agency and a member of Ukraine’s parliament, says he expects the corruption case of the Burisma gas company—two cases were opened and dropped by various prosecutors over the years—to be revisited. Hunter Biden, the son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, was a board member.

Ukrainians get that at the very least it appears unseemly.

But for Democrats, it’s always and only about getting Trump.

Journalist Gets His A** Handed to Him After Tweeting That Clinton’s Impeachment Was Based on “Second-Hand Info”

If Adam Schiff’s outrageous “parody” stunt last week on the July call between Trump and Zelensky wasn’t proof enough that Democrats are simply not interested in conducting an honest and fair impeachment inquiry, we now have so-called “journalists” tweeting out erroneous information about President Clinton’s impeachment in order to justify one against Trump.

It all started after Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) complained on Twitter Saturday about the fact that the whistleblower’s complaint was based on second and thirdhand information. Here’s what Graham tweeted:

Liberal journalist Garrett Graff, a former editor for Politico Magazine, responded by (falsely) claiming that “Graham and the GOP had little trouble impeaching Clinton on Linda Tripp’s second-hand info”:

Say what??

His assertion is so far off from the truth that it isn’t even funny. Unfortunately, the tweet was so popular over the weekend that Linda Tripp’s name trended on Twitter for several hours Saturday as others piggy-backed on the tweet to make the same (false) point. Graff’s tweet has nearly 8,400 retweets and 28,000 likes as of this writing.

Yours truly was one of many people who pushed back on Graff’s shameless attempt at revising Clinton’s impeachment history:

Facts first.

The New York Times Stealth Edits Major Story and There are Few Complaints to be Heard

New York Times building by wsifrancis, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

The paper of record repeats its false narratives like a broken record.

It was precisely the kind of red meat the voracious anti-Trump warriors and #Resistance fighters devour. The New York Times delivered a scathing report on Friday that was a perfect example of everything wrong with a Trump presidency. The paper detailed that Trump had brokered a quid pro quo deal with the NRA during a meeting with Wayne LaPierre, whereby he established if the organization lends its support to his campaign for reelection he would stop the games being played with gun control legislation.

Turns out the story was a little too perfect. It sure had all the proper outrage elements; an allegedly corrupt president, a despised organization, and a possibly illegal deal between the nefarious forces. This was the kind of scandal that would cement the expulsion of the president. With the supposedly grievous Ukrainian phone call outrage taking place already this additional legal behavior would make it required that he be driven from office.

Were any of it true. Turns out that the New York Times has fallen into a pattern with these groundbreaking stories. Release the report, frame it in such a way that generates the most outrage, and then much later quietly make a significant alteration that changes the entire interpretation. In the original release the paper described this arrangement as being done “in return for the support”.

Then in the early evening The Times altered this language, replacing this accusation with the completely neutral language of “During the meeting…”. The only indication of this shift in tone is a note at the end indicating only that the piece had been “updated”, with no specifics given behind the update, and no explanation what led to the change.

When your change of content is so blatant that Josh Marshal takes notice you know this was some journalistic malpractice. This is the same methodology used just weeks back when The Times supplied an “explosive” announcement of a new alleged victim of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and then later revealing that this supposed victim had no memory of the alleged events, whatsoever. The Times had that detail all along. It rested inside the very same book that the paper was promoting with its claimed “exclusive”.

What is most revealing about this technique is how it is warmly accepted by those who feel perfectly at ease screeching about every supposed factual error in the Fox News and right-of-center media. Brian Stelter is the self-anointed media arbiter at CNN, and his mission statement is to comment on press activities. Yet, after helping push the Kavanaugh lie, he has been uncritical of the vagaries in the Ukrainian story and misrepresentations in the press. Brian has been quite content pushing the narrative and perpetuating the inaccuracies

This weekend’s edition of Reliable Sources saw him incapable to find any time to mention the New York Times alteration. You would think a major paper with a major factual problem would warrant coverage by a media critic, but no such content was delivered. Instead, Brian dedicated a lengthy block of his air time to interview a Ukrainian whistleblower “expert” — actor Robert DeNiro. The telling part in all of this is Stelter’s co-worker at CNN, Jake Tapper, had a direct involvement with the alteration from The Times.

Tapper had sent out a tweet on Friday following the initial revelation by the paper. But once the alteration of the entire narrative was exposed Tapper at least did the proper thing and alerted his followers to the change in the story and pulled down his original post — something not even The Times could manage to do with its own change.

This is the state of contemporary journalism. Their actions have made it necessary that the audience has to work harder than media members in order to get the complete story.

#BelieveWomen: Juanita Broaddrick Has Questions for Omar and Warren After They Tweet Support for Blasey Ford

Because it’s been a year since Christine Blasey Ford testified in the show trial witch hunt Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh, a number of elected Democrats are taking to the Twitter machine to note they “still believe her.”

Among them is Sen. Kamala Harris (CA), who stated Ford “courageously forced our nation to reckon with an issue that has too often been kept in the dark.” And because she’s desperately trying to become relevant again in the 2020 presidential race, Harris has called for an impeachment inquiry into Justice Kavanaugh.

Two other high-profile Democrats women who tweeted out their support for Blasey Ford were fellow presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN).

Here’s what Omar had to say about Blasey Ford:

Like Harris, Warren feels Kavanaugh and President Trump both should be impeached. Warren tweeted her support Friday night for Blasey Ford:

Juanita Broaddrick, who has said for decades that former President Bill Clinton raped her in the late 70s when he was the Arkansas attorney general, had some questions for the both of them:

When Omar didn’t respond, Broaddrick also asked the same question of Warren:

As of this writing, neither of them have responded to Broaddrick’s question. And they won’t.

Because for Democrats, especially Democratic women, “Believe All Women” – which ironically is a slogan that gained popularity after tweets from Hillary Clinton with similar messaging went viral a few years ago – “Believe All Women” only applies to women who have accused Republican/conservative men of sexual misconduct or assault.

In other words, “Believe All Women” is a weaponized accusatory tool for Democratic women which they shamefully use only in instances where they feel it will benefit them politically. It’s shameful, but it’s who they are.

Kudos to Broaddrick for continuing to point out their double standards.

Last week, pictures and video of Justin Trudeau blew up and threatened his campaign for re-election.

There were multiple incidents. One was where he was dressed as Aladdin and made up in blackface at an “Arabian Nights” party at the private high school at which he was teaching. He reportedly was the only one to wear a costume and his face and his hands were blacked up. He was a 29 years old. The second incident was a picture from high school were he appeared in a show singing “The Banana Boat” song. He wore blackface and an afro.

The last incident was a video that Global News Canada found. But their copy was grainy and difficult to see in detail. Now another Canadian outlet, The Post Milennial, has posted a higher quality version of the video.

Here it is:

He’s wearing an afro and appears to, again, have dyed multiple parts of his body, from his legs and arms to his tongue. He also ripped up his jeans and appears to have enhanced his crotch area.

Yikes. Can it get much worse?

But he seems resolved to weather it out, employing that well-known “if a liberal does it, it’s cool” exception.

Flashback: Watch When Dems Scorned Impeaching a President “For Political Battles”

Westlake Legal Group BillClintonSideEye Flashback: Watch When Dems Scorned Impeaching a President “For Political Battles” Uncategorized Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Campaigns Bill Clinton

Democrats have been pushing impeachment pretty much since President Donald Trump was elected.

Of course, it really has nothing to do with anything he’s done and everything to do with trying to re-litigate the 2016 election.

How do we know this? Well, if it wasn’t already obvious, we could just take a look back at their words the last time the question of impeachment came up, during the administration of President Bill Clinton.

Let’s hear from some of them.

Here’s House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), telling us that they should not be trying to undo a national election and overriding the vote of the people.

How about Joe Biden? He reminds everyone that the President serves at the pleasure of the people, not the Congress.

Republicans may not have liked Bill Clinton, but there’s no match in modern times to the hatred and complete mania that Democrats feel over Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) warns about being paralyzed with fear of the President, so much so that you would violate privacy and the normal checks and balances.

Almost like you might do if you spied on your opponent’s campaign and tried to undermine it, even getting the FBI and the media in on the act in an unprecedented abuse of power.

Then there’s Mad Maxine, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). Now she’s been on a hate-filled rant even before Trump won in 2016. Everyone recalls how she even encouraged people to “get up in” the faces of Trump officials and “push back” wherever her minions might see those officials, which was then followed by a number of officials being harassed. Waters preached against impeachment and hatred, and not being oblivious to what the people say.

Perhaps the best was Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who warned about “impeaching over politics,” that Democrats might demand payback and try to impeach a Republican president if the GOP dared go after Clinton. You think?

But here Democrats are now, doing everything they can to push impeachment over politics, even knowing they will fail to convict in the Senate if they were to manage to impeach in the House. And even knowing that about 60% of America is against it, against them overturning the results of an election.

From NY Post:

That the Democrats have been talking impeachment since before Trump was even sworn in has made the voters a bit cynical about them. “I’m like, yeah, boy who cried wolf,” Donna Burgraff, a Tennessee independent who voted for Barack Obama and Donald Trump, told the Times. “You’ve got to have something big, and I haven’t seen something big.” One Times reporter said she spoke to six middle-of-the-road voters, and all of them vehemently opposed impeachment.

The Clinton impeachment saga lasted six months. If it takes six months this time, it’ll wrap up just seven months before the next election. Why bother? The voters will have their say soon enough. And impeachment will eat Washington. Nothing else will get done. This should matter to Democrats, because it looked as if they might get at least some of their gun-control ideas passed into law. Not anymore. Gun control has been pushed off the back burner and disappeared behind the stove.

If impeachment goes on for the next several months, Democrats will hardly be able to go to the voters and claim they delivered anything for them. Republicans in swing districts where gun control is popular might well say, “Look, we may have had a consensus to do something on this, but the Democrats decided to waste all of our time playing politics.”

And if all they get out of all this, Democratic voters will eat them alive and Trump will sail into office in 2020.

NYC Makes It Illegal To Call Someone an “Illegal Alien” Or Call ICE On Person When “Motivated By Hate”

Westlake Legal Group constitution-fire NYC Makes It Illegal To Call Someone an “Illegal Alien” Or Call ICE On Person When “Motivated By Hate” Uncategorized progressives political correctness law immigration Front Page Stories Front Page First Amendment Featured Story Featured Post Constitution

Thought, speech, the Constitution and enforcing the law all appear to be taking a hit with a current move taken in New York City.

It’s now against the law in New York City to threaten to call immigration on someone or to call someone an illegal alien “when motivated by hate.”

This was announced not in a decision by the legislature, but in an edict declared by the New York Commission on Human Rights.

From Daily Wire:

The new crimes include, according to a press release from the commission, “Threatening to call [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] when motivated by discrimination, derogatory use of the term ‘illegal alien,’ and discrimination based on limited English proficiency are unlawful discriminatory treatment under the NYC Human Rights Law.”

The commission also said it was “currently investigating 4 cases involving discrimination based on threats to call ICE in order to harass, threaten, or intimidate a victim.”

And this sounds a lot like the Commission is declaring illegal aliens a “protected class.”

The new guidance “defines discrimination on the basis of perceived or actual immigration status and national origin under the New York City Human Rights Law in public accommodations, employment, and housing.”

“The guidance states that the use of the term ‘illegal alien,’ among others, when used with intent to demean, humiliate, or harass a person, is illegal under the law,” the commission said in its press release. “Further, the guidance stipulates that harassing or discriminating against someone for their use of another language or their limited English proficiency, and threatening to call ICE on a person based on a discriminatory motive, are considered to be in violation of the law.”

The Commission provides some examples of what would trigger them.

From NY Post:

“A hotel prohibits its housekeepers from speaking Spanish while cleaning because it would ‘offend’ hotel guests or make them uncomfortable,” reads one hypothetical.

“An Indian immigrant family complains to their landlord about mold and cockroaches in their unit. The landlord tells them to ‘just deal with it’ and threatens to call ICE if they file a complaint in housing court,” reads another.

“A store owner tells two friends who are speaking Thai while shopping in his store to ‘speak English’ and ‘go back to your country,’ ” reads a third.

Imagine the nightmare of accusations this is going to spawn.

Plus, the punishment is not minor. You can get a $250,000 per each incident, effectively destroying any small business or landlord.

The edict made it clear they were doing this because of the “increasingly hostile national rhetoric.”

“[W]e will do everything in our power to make sure our treasured immigrant communities are able to live with dignity and respect, free of harassment and bias,” said Carmelyn Malalis, the agency’s commissioner.

The directive comes months after Mayor Bill de Blasio vocally opposed coordinated raids by ICE on the city’s immigrant communities.

The city is also providing one million dollars to help with legal defense against deportation for illegal aliens.

So beyond the fact that this was just declared without the input of the legislature, there’s the small problem of criminalizing thought, speech and enforcement of the law.

Who gets to decide when “illegal alien” is said “with hate?” Who gets to decide what happened in a “he said, she said” matter? And is there any doubt that the city, which finds everything offensive, will err on the side of finding for the illegal alien offended?
