Senior DCCC Staff Fired for Being Too White

Westlake Legal Group clown-shutterstock-620x411 Senior DCCC Staff Fired for Being Too White Uncategorized Too White resigned racism Inter-sectionalism Front Page Stories fired Featured Story Diversity Disarray Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee DCCC cowards civil war bustos

Someone make this news cycle stop. I need a break from the absurdity.

Last night, some information broke regarding the DCCC, which is the campaign committee that helps get Democrats elected to the House. By the end of the evening, all the top senior officials were out.

The top echelon of staffers at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee left their jobs Monday, a shakeup following a pair of POLITICO stories detailing deep unease with the party’s campaign apparatus over a lack of diversity.

On Monday morning, Allison Jaslow, DCCC executive director and a close ally of Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) — chair of the committee — resigned during a tense meeting at the party’s Capitol Hill headquarters. And in the next 10 hours, much of the senior staff was out: Jared Smith, the communications director and another Bustos ally; Melissa Miller, a top DCCC communications aide; Molly Ritner, political director; Nick Pancrazio, deputy executive director; and Van Ornelas, the DCCC’s director of diversity.

To be clear, none of these people actually left voluntarily. To the extent that they “resigned,” it was because of the pressure they were forced into it.

POLITICO reported last week that top lawmakers in the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Hispanic Caucus were furious with Bustos, saying she was short-changing minorities by excluding them from her senior staff and failing to live up to promises she made during her campaign for the chairmanship. Bustos surrounded herself with loyalists, eschewing the typical campaign hands that run major party apparatuses.

“Today, I recognize that, at times, I have fallen short in leading these talented individuals. To my colleagues, who I have the upmost respect for, I hear your concerns, and we can and must do better,” Bustos said.

After the meeting, the resignations began, no doubt at Bustos demand. She’s desperately flailing about, trying to preserve her own position and she was willing to push out her entire senior staff to do it.

The reason is simple. Her staff was too white. It didn’t reflect the “diversity” of the Democratic party. Why that matters when we are talking about a behind the scenes, number crunching campaign committee, I’m not sure. But this is the modern Democratic party. They are so woke that it was always just a matter of time before they started eating themselves.

I’m not sure what’s more pathetic here. That this is what the Democratic party has become or that none of these people are willing to stand up for themselves in the face of this inter-sectional nonsense. Bustos immediately folded and threw what were seemingly her friends under the bus to appease the mob.

If I were these senior staff members, I’d have made them fire me. No one should be forced to give up a job they are qualified for just to meet racial quotas.

How many stories in the mainstream media on the disarray within the Democratic party do you think we’ll see today in response to this? One? None? I’m gonna go with none. Republicans can disagree about what’s for lunch and it’s a “civil war,” but this won’t garner anything because protecting the left is the priority.

For the Democrats’ part, they deserve this. Feed the monster, but don’t be surprised when it eats you.

Video: Ted Cruz Confronted at Airport by Screaming Immigration Protesters

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-8-620x379 Video: Ted Cruz Confronted at Airport by Screaming Immigration Protesters Voto Latino Ted Cruz protesters Politics lax immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats children child seperation Allow Media Exception

Poor Texas Senator Ted Cruz can’t seem to go anywhere without people finding him and screaming at him. He can’t even get off of a plane without being confronted in a terminal.

According to the Daily Caller, Cruz was at a terminal at LAX this weekend when a group of protesters from the organization “Voto Latino” surrounded him and made a show of making it seem like Cruz himself was locking up kids at the border.

Protesters can be heard shouting “family matters” (great show), “Americans will not be silenced,” and  “free the children,” at Cruz as if he, right then, would produce a key from his pocket that would unlock cages full of immigrant children.

Cruz stood silently but shook his head.

Voto Latino posted the video of themselves bravely confronting Cruz to Twitter where they used the same logic leftists used to justify confronting he and his wife while they attempted to eat a peaceful dinner and were forced out of a restaurant.

“Politicians like [Ted Cruz] that allow our people to be locked in cages don’t get to be comfortable in public. Those in positions of power must be held accountable for the treatment of children and families at the border,” tweeted Voto Latino.

Like every single one of these protests, you have to wonder where they and their perpetual outrage were during the Obama administration. Again, as has been discussed ad nauseum, this isn’t about the children, this is about political positioning and optics. If Cruz looks like a massive racist for the U.S. following established U.S. law that has been around for decades, then maybe that will translate into people leaving Trump’s camp.

Sure enough, when the children controversy first reared its head, Trump’s approval dipped. The left has been trying to bang that drum ever since.

The truth is that, while our immigration system does need an overhaul, separating children from their families at the border isn’t necessarily a bad practice. Children are often used as product or payment, and it’s in the interest of their safety that we separate them from their parent or guardian until we can check out that everything is on the up and up.

These protesters accomplished nothing but making themselves look like the bad guys by confronting a lone man who obviously knows more about what goes on at the border than they do and doesn’t easily cave to pressure.

What they did accomplish was getting the “Family Matters” theme song stuck in my head.

As the self-appointed “Grim Reaper” of the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has made it crystal clear that one of his top priorities is getting President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees confirmed.

The Politico reported last week on how the longtime Kentucky Senator was keeping his promises:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday set up votes on lifetime appointments for 19 judicial nominees next week, setting up a busy pre-recess work session on a top GOP priority.

McConnell’s move means likely confirmation of 19 District Court judges; the GOP leader had focused on higher-level Circuit Court judges for the first 30 months of Donald Trump’s presidency, filling all but four vacancies on the appeals courts.

Now McConnell is beginning to work his way through the 111 District Court vacancies even as the House heads home for the summer this week.

[…]

“Not bad for a week’s work and that’s what the Senate will accomplish before we adjourn for August,” McConnell said on the floor.

Naturally, this makes McConnell an enemy in Democratic circles, which might explain why late night TV talk show host Conan O’Brien took a swipe at McConnell’s looks on Monday, asking how the Majority Leader managed to sleep at night:

Twitter user “Vixen Rogue” had a brilliant response:

Even New York Times alums see McConnell’s laser-like focus on filling court vacancies and begrudgingly praise him:

‘Nuff said.

Actually, Trump Was “On the Ground” During 9/11 Aftermath

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-7-620x428 Actually, Trump Was “On the Ground” During 9/11 Aftermath Politics Media Front Page Stories First Responders Featured Story donald trump democrats CNN Chris Cillizza Allow Media Exception 9/11

For some reason, President Donald Trump of New York — that part is important — saying that he was among the effort for cleanup after the terrorist attack that took place on 9/11 but adding that he’s not considering himself a “first responder” meant that he considers himself a first responder to the left.

The jury is still out on why, but I’m more and more convinced that Trump Derangement Syndrome is real by the day.

“I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder,” Trump said during the signing of the 9/11 first responders bill. “But I was down there. I spent a lot of time down there with you.”

CNN host Chris Cillizza wrote an entire article about Trump’s words, saying that Trump is associating himself — very closely — with the men and women who were the first to respond to planes being crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.”

He didn’t, because Trump said in that very speech that he wasn’t.

Cillizza also went over various quotes that Trump said down the line about those days after the wreckage.

“Everyone who helped clear the rubble — and I was there, and I watched, and I helped a little bit — but I want to tell you: Those people were amazing,” Trump said in a speech in Buffalo in 2016. “Clearing the rubble. Trying to find additional lives. You didn’t know what was going to come down on all of us — and they handled it.”

Once again, we see Trump using terms of “they” when describing the people who actually did the hard work of cleaning up New York and rescuing those who were in need. He notes that he was there watching and helped “a little bit,” but he doesn’t use the word “we,” it’s “they.”

The entirety of the purpose of Cillizza and the left who follow this same narrative is to give off the impression that Trump is lying about his involvement in the 9/11 aftermath.

“So why should we be surprised that he has a long track record of suggesting he was someone involved in the cleanup after the 9/11 attacks when it’s clear he wasn’t?” asks Cillizza.

Only Trump was. This video appeared on Twitter showing Trump not only there, but discussing the efforts he’s putting forth to help New York, the city he lives in, in the aftermath. He even expresses knowledge of what goes on for the workers and how dangerous it is, noting workers are being forced to run when a whistle blows out of fear of collapsing structures.

Again, he uses the terms “they” a lot. He doesn’t include himself among them as Cillizza is claiming Trump is trying to do.

Don’t you think that if Trump considered himself one of them he would have immediately done so? It’s odd that he’s continuing to use the same kind of distancing language for a guy trying to include himself among the first responders.

So let’s put this nonsense to bed. Trump was there, he was a part of the effort, though he’s not considering himself among those doing the dirty and dangerous work, nor among the first responders.

This is a non-issue being turned into a much bigger issue and is only one more nasty thing the left is trying to heap onto Trump in order to reduce his approval by 2020.

As the Left Focuses on Faux Cries of Racism, Baltimore Blows By 2018 Murder Rate and Real People Are Suffering

Let me show you the stupidity of modern politics. We’ll start with a recap.

Elijah Cummings makes a dishonest, disgusting rant against the acting DHS Secretary, accusing him of abusing children and not caring about humanity. Nothing he said was provably true and it was a slander the CBP didn’t deserve. Trump responded by pointing out, rightly, that Cummings own district is a dumpster fire of crime and poverty and that he shouldn’t be attacking CBP, who are doing the best they can.

To a normal, logical person, the response should be “you know, it is concerning that Baltimore has a murder rate higher than almost every 3rd world country on earth and perhaps we should focus on that.”

But nope, we don’t live in sane times. So instead we got crying on CNN and countless media hits about how Trump’s comments were racist, despite having no racial connotation whatsoever. Heck, we even got Democrats rushing to defend noted anti-Semite and race hustler Al Sharpton because nothing has to make sense anymore as long as you are opposing Trump.

What really happened here is that Trump broke the rules, as he’s apt to do. The rules say that Republicans simply aren’t allowed to point out the failures of Democrats in the major cities and if you do so, you will be labeled racist because the inner cities are mostly made up of minorities. Until Trump, most Republicans dutifully followed the script.

Trump is not most Republicans.

Meanwhile, as the left rages about tweets that were objectively not racist, real people continue to suffer and die in Baltimore, a city none of them were thinking twice about until it became a way to respond angrily at Donald Trump.

Here’s some eye popping stats for you.

Those numbers are high enough that if Baltimore were a country, it’d be the 4th most dangerous country on the planet. Baltimore leads every U.S. city in murder rate and it’s really not even close at this point. Even if you broaden it to just violent crime (including minor assaults, etc.), Baltimore still clocks in at #2, just behind Detroit.

But the high median income and college graduate rates!

Well yeah. Cummings’ district looks like a child threw up because it’s been so gerrymandered (for the record I’m not against gerrymandering and to the victor go the spoils). That means that he has western and northern suburbs that curve around and connect to his part of the city. In those suburbs are mostly rich white people who moved out of the city long ago because it is such a disaster.

Median income numbers do absolutely nothing to tell the story of poverty within west Baltimore, which is the area being referenced throughout this entire ordeal.

Baltimore is objectively in awful shape. The violent crime numbers are mind-glowingly bad. Residents live in fear and squalor that’s more fit for Afghanistan. Instead of actually addressing Trump’s comments though, we’ve gotten nonsensical #IamBaltimore hashtags and virtue signaling. Because that’s all our current political and media class are good for.

By next week, none of those same people will be thinking about Baltimore. They won’t help the people there. They won’t hold the officials helping to destroy the city accountable. As usual, this was all about politics and “orange man bad.” Better to cry racism for partisan gain than to actually help people who are literally dying in a ware zone in one of America’s oldest cities.

NY Times Is Concerned John Ratcliffe Is Too Partisan For DNI Role; Brit Hume Immediately Pounces

Westlake Legal Group John-Ratcliffe-620x868 NY Times Is Concerned John Ratcliffe Is Too Partisan For DNI Role; Brit Hume Immediately Pounces Politics Mueller Investigation Mainstream Media John Ratcliffe John Brennan James Clapper Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Dan Coats Brit Hume Allow Media Exception 2020

The left has been highly critical of President Trump’s decision to replace DNI Dan Coats with Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX). My colleague, Bonchie, posted about some of that outrage here.

Coats, although a Republican, is a creature of the Washington establishment. He has not hesitated to criticize President Trump and he has done his best to stonewall the release of sensitive documents. Some believe Coats may even have been the “anonymous senior White House official” who wrote an op-ed published by The New York Times last September in which he trashed the President.

At any rate, he will leave his position on August 15th.

On Monday, The New York Times sent out a rather audacious and tone-deaf tweet which said: “Former officials have expressed concern that Representative John Ratcliffe, President Trump’s pick to serve as director of national intelligence, will politicize what is supposed to be a nonpartisan job.”

Fox News’ Brit Hume was having none of it and he quickly shot back with a tweet of his own. In one brief sentence, he ended the debate. He wrote: ““Nonpartisan?” As in Clapper and Brennan?”

Both Clapper and Brennan are believed to be complicit in the deep state’s coup against the President. Brennan was one of the earliest and most enthusiastic Obama administration officials to push the Russian collusion narrative. He shared the story with anyone who would listen. He’s often referred as the  “cheerleader” for the Trump/Russia collusion investigation.

Signs point to Clapper’s involvement in the scheme as well. Specifically, he is believed to have leaked word to the media who had been sitting on the dossier story, that the President-elect had been briefed, which gave them the green light to go ahead and publish.

Brit Hume does have a way of getting right to the heart of the matter. As he did on Monday night.

Here are some of the responses to Brit’s insightful tweet:

“Don’t forget “ONLY VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS” Comey”

“This right here is Twitter gold…lol”

“Only democrat presidents are allowed to appoint partisans”

NEW: ACLJ Has Obtained Obama DOJ’s Immunity Agreements With Hillary Clinton’s Attorneys

Westlake Legal Group hillary-in-jail-620x425-copy-1-620x306 NEW: ACLJ Has Obtained Obama DOJ’s Immunity Agreements With Hillary Clinton’s Attorneys Hillary Clinton's emails Hillary Clinton Heather Samuelson immunity agreement with DOJ Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption donald trump democrats Cheryl Mills immunity agreement with DOJ Allow Media Exception ACLJ FOIA request Abuse of Power

On Monday night’s edition of Hannity, it was announced that The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has obtained the Obama DOJ’s immunity agreements with Hillary Clinton’s lawyers, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson. These records were obtained via a FOIA request filed by the ACLJ two years ago.

Mills served as Clinton’s chief of staff and Samuelson served as a senior advisor and White House liaison during her tenure as Secretary of State. Both women became her personal attorneys after she left State.

According to ACLJ executive director and radio host Jordan Sekulow, Mills and Samuelson agreed to turn over their laptops in exchange for:

Immunity from prosecution for anything found on their laptops violating multiple felony criminal statutes governing the mishandling of classified information and/or the removal or destruction of records, including Espionage Act provisions. Further, the DOJ and FBI also agreed to evade the statutory requirements of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by purporting to deem the contents of the laptops as not under DOJ or FBI “custody or control.”

According to the DOJ Inspector General, who identified these as the “culling laptops,” “[a]ll 62,320 emails pulled from the Clinton servers were stored at one time on these laptops.” Having taken control of these laptops, agreeing to severely limit its searches, agreeing to unlawfully shield the laptops from FOIA, then agreeing to dispose of the laptops, it appears the Comey FBI and Lynch DOJ did everything in their power to protect Clinton’s senior aids and lawyers from both criminal liability and public scrutiny.

While these immunity agreements and related news have been publicly discussed to some extent, the ACLJ has now obtained the actual documents so the public may see and judge them accordingly.

The pair were essentially given the green light “to dispose of evidence and refuse to comply with federal law.”

During former FBI agent Peter Strzok’s Congressional testimony last summer, he disclosed that Clinton’s lawyers had negotiated immunity agreements with Loretta Lynch’s DOJ which was shocking. Now the actual documents can be viewed here.

Sekulow explained to Hannity:

They take over her emails. They’re called “culling computers” and each one had one. These were the backups of the infamous server out in Colorado that had the 62,000 emails on them.

Each [Mills and Samuelson] had it and guess what, each was going through as now Hillary Clinton’s lawyers deleting emails. So, when this investigation began, they wanted to make sure right off the bat that they were immune from the Espionage Act, the Records Act, and the Classified Information Act. Crimes that bring prison time of up to 28 years if you combine them for each of these actors and  yet they get full immunity, but not just that. They also get the FBI and the DOJ to agree to not allow the American people to access this information on their computers via FOIA. I’ve got that document right here. And they’ll destroy the computers for Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson and the Clinton Team.

This arrangement has been described as “highly unusual.” These women went through over 62,000 emails which had been subpoenaed and decided which were okay for the public to see and which should be withheld.

In an article published on Monday, Sekulow goes into the details of the agreements and also discusses the FBI’s attempts to stonewall the ACLJ’s attempts to obtain these records. He wrote that the DOJ/FBI “expressly attempted to evade FOIA’s requirements.” The language included in the immunity agreements with Mills and Samuelson was meant to “circumvent” FOIA requests. Or so they thought. Read the details here.

These immunity agreements represent the most irrefutable evidence yet of America’s two-tier system of justice. Although we’ve suspected this all along, we now have proof. We’ve waited a long time to see justice served, as government agencies have tried their best to stonewall the release of key documents. Although the progress has been painfully slow, important information is being revealed and a picture of extensive abuse of power by officials at the highest levels of the Obama DOJ and FBI is emerging.

This is not a good day for Team Hillary.

Elijah Cummings Can’t Hide Behind The Race Card Anymore

Elijah Cummings Can’t Hide Behind The Race Card Anymore

Previously I referred to a Wall Street Journal calling President Trump a “Brawler For Democracy.” He is indeed. Moreover, there’s a newly discovered benefit to President Trump’s bumptious, brawling style. Understanding that great minds think like mine, even the great Rush Limbaugh hinted at this new effect on his morning show yesterday…as I was busily drafting out this article; so I’m still taking the credit.

President Trump has made it such that no one is immune from accountability for their words and actions. He has refused to be cowed by certain personages whose personal status (war hero, civil rights icon, washed up football player) has heretofore made them off limits to criticism.

In one example of this, President Trump, provided stellar support, including aircraft from the Presidential fleet for Senator John McCain’s funeral. How did McCain’s ungrateful family respond? They made His funeral a week long “bash Trump” event. When the President quite rightly responded to some of the more over the top comments by the McCain family and their retainers, he got scorched by the leftists for “speaking ill of the dead.” What a crock. The McCain family got exactly what they deserved. As for the leftists, it was only a few years ago that they were talking about McCain just as they do President Trump. As time goes on, John McCain will be remembered not as a “maverick,” but for his perfidious conduct.

Fast forward to this last Sunday’s series of tweets by the President criticizing civil rights “icon” Elijah Cummings. President Trump quite rightly called out Rep. Cummings for his ill-mannered tirade against the Chief of Homeland Security. During that shouting session, Cummings made a series of offensive and completely false accusations regarding conditions at border detention facilities. accusations. Interestingly, Cummings hasn’t been to the border facilities in question that I am aware of.

Not a bit fazed by Cummings’s civil rights armor plating, President Trump called him out in a series of tweets Sunday, basically telling him to deal with the squalid conditions in his own district before he makes (patently false) accusations about somebody else’s area of responsibility. This is classic Trump. Not just the part about him being willing to return fire when fired upon, but also the willingness to push back against the left’s almost automatic use of the race card by stripping away that protective armor. This is important. Heretofore, when a member of our side inevitably got hit with the race card (usually when the other side realized they were losing on the merits) our guy would cringe meekly say, “Oh! I’m sorry,” and slink away.

That didn’t happen this time. While the left stridently and expectedly screeched, “Raaayciss!” President Trump didn’t apologize. He didn’t back down. He doubled down. Suddenly, there appeared first a trickle, then a stream of stories…and video footage of Democrats such as Bernie Sanders talking about Baltimore, saying the same thing as President Trump. More video surfaced of City of Baltimore officials, again saying essentially the same thing as The President. To make matters worse (for the Democrats) somebody unearthed an old NPR segment entitled “Rattown,” discussing the sanitation problem in Baltimore. The icing on the cake however, has been video footage of several residents of Cummings’ district stating for all the World to hear, that he hasn’t done anything for them or their District.

Representative Cummings has been living on his reputation for several decades. What has he accomplished for the citizens of his district? Nothing. Their only value to him, is once every two years when they flip the lever for him. Calling him out isn’t racist. As the militant teachers in Wisconsin said as they climbed through the State Capital windows to protest actually having to work, “This is what Democracy looks like.”

If President Trump had reacted when confronted, as previous Republican Presidents or failed candidates, none of this would have come out. Representative Elijah Cummings would have never been outed as a living on the achievements of another era. What President Trump has given our side, is permission to fight back.

Disappointment: ‘Sex & the City’ Author Comes to a Surprising & Sad Realization as a Middle-Aged Woman

Westlake Legal Group new-york-2699520_1280-620x413 Disappointment: ‘Sex & the City’ Author Comes to a Surprising & Sad Realization as a Middle-Aged Woman Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

If you’ve seen Sex & the City, you know it’s not exactly an ode to family life. It’s moreso about three chicks singlin’ it up in the Big Apple and sometimes beddin’ it up.

But Candace Bushnell — the author of the novel that started it all — conveyed a much homier message to Sunday Times Magazine: She regrets that she never became a mom.

As reported by Fox News, after splitting from her husband of 10 years in 2012, she felt “truly…alone”:

“When I was in my 30s and 40s, I didn’t think about it. Then when I got divorced and I was in my 50s, I started to see the impact of not having children and of truly being alone. I do see that people with children have an anchor in a way that people who have no kids don’t.”

If only Candace had known brilliant Professor Jordan Peterson — his message to women is that motherhood is an adventure (here).

Candace came onto the scene as a prominent dating columnist at The New York Observer. Her writings were anthologized in her television-show-spawning book.

The 60-year-old’s upcoming release — Is There Still Sex in the City? — deals with “middle-age sadness.”

As per Deadline, that, too, is being made into a TV series.

The new work follows a group of middle-aged women’s relocation from the big city to the Hamptons for a fresh start:

“We’re all single women without children. And you think about, what are you going to do when you get old?” she said. “If you don’t have kids, you realize, ‘Who is going to take care of me?’ Your girlfriends.”

Well there ya go.

Not long ago, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul was attacked by his neighbor, cracking six of his ribs, puncturing his lungs, and giving him two bouts of pneumonia. According to his wife, recovering from those injuries was a “living hell.”

And Rep. Ilhan Omar seems to be okay with it.

According to the Daily Caller, Omar was just caught retweeting a tweet by insane Hollywood celebrity Tom Arnold who tweeted out some hate for Paul after Paul said Omar should visit Somalia just to see how good America has been to her.

As I covered in further detail, nothing Paul had said was inherently bad at all. However, you can bet it would somehow be taken as inherently racist. This caused Arnold to respond by sympathizing with this violent neighbor.

“Imagine being Rand Paul’s next door neighbor and having to deal with @RandPaul lying cowardly circular whiney bullcrap about lawn clippings. No wonder he ripped his toupee off,” tweeted Arnold.

Arnold is usually known for his over the top, bizarre rants, even going so far as to suggest he’d prefer an actual Nazi over Trump. Regardless of his reputation as an insane person, Omar must have agreed with Arnold and retweeted the tweet itself as captured by the Daily Caller.

So let’s break this down.

Paul was attacked and horribly injured by his neighbor. This was after surviving an attempted assassination by a crazed pro-Bernie Sanders socialist, mind you. Paul is then on camera saying that if America is so bad then Omar should go back to her hometown to see what’s happening down there. He didn’t mention deportation, he didn’t even mention race, just where she’s originally from. The left naturally gets upset about it, triggers Arnold, who in turn makes it out that Paul deserved the violence that was inflicted upon him.

This is then retweeted by Omar who is already in hot water for…

Omar continues to prove to be a much more horrible person than the media could ever make President Donald Trump out to be, yet it’s doubtful that anyone but the right will call Omar out on this.

Bottom line, Omar just smiled at violence toward a colleague, yet no one is saying a word about it.
