Robert De Niro Gets Sued for Gender Discrimination, Harassment; Listen to Profanity-Laden Rant Against Employee

Actor Robert De Niro doesn’t like President Donald Trump. He’s made that clear again and again.

But he’s done it, not by disagreeing with policies, but by being crude and obnoxious, cursing the president out on live television, infamously saying “F**k Trump” live on the Academy Awards last year. Two years before that he even threatened to punch Trump in the face.

He claims to be upset with the actions of the president.

But now he’s facing a federal lawsuit from someone who’s very upset with his actions.

Graham Chase Robinson, a woman who used to work for De Niro has brought a claim of gender discrimination and fostering an abusive working environment against him.

According to Fox Business, her attorney Jeremy Heisler said, “Ms. [Graham Chase] Robinson has no choice but … to send him a message: the Harvey Weinsteins of this world should realize their approach is extinct. You can no longer intimidate women. You can no longer threaten them.”

Variety details some of the allegations in the suit.

De Niro purportedly used sexist language, calling female employees “c—s” and “bitches,” and referred to Robinson, who was his executive assistant, as his “office wife.”

“Robert De Niro is someone who has clung to old mores,” the lawsuit reads. “He does not accept the idea that men should treat women as equals. He does not care that gender discrimination in the workplace violates the law. Ms. Robinson is a casualty of this attitude.” ….

In her suit, Robinson says she was underpaid compared to male colleagues and given “female duties like housework.” De Niro allegedly joked to Robinson about his Viagra prescription, asked her to imagine him on the toilet and suggested she could get pregnant using sperm from a married male co-worker.

Fox Business also notes that the suit claims De Niro allegedly gave her “unwanted physical contact” in addition to unwanted “sexually charged” comments.

Now an audio has been released in which De Niro goes on a profanity-laden rant against Robinson.

“You’re living in Spain, and you’re f***ing upset with me because you tell me how nice you have it and you f***ing don’t answer my calls? How dare you. You’re about to be fired. You’re f***ing history,” the “Goodfellas” actor can be heard shouting into the phone. “How dare you. With all the good things you do. This is f***ing bad. How dare you f***ing disrespect me how much you did. Don’t be angry with me ’cause I’m pissed off ’cause I didn’t get a simple thing that I need right now here in California, where I’m here less than 24 hours, you gotta be f***ing kidding me, you spoilt brat!”

Warning for graphic language

Robinson’s team said that De Niro’s people knew they were going to sue and so they sued her first, accusing her of not doing her job, charging for personal expenses and misappropriating frequently flyer miles. She reportedly made an astonishing $300,000, according to Variety.

Her attorneys are now arguing that those comments have wrongly damaged her reputation.

A De Niro spokesperson said that De Niro denies all the allegations.

Trump on Impeachment: Nancy Pelosi is Afraid, of Republicans Taking the Senate and ‘AOC and Plus 3’ Taking Her Place

Donald Trump is a different kind of president. He’s certainly not afraid to call people by name and call out their shenanigans.

And on Friday, the Commander-in-Chief accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being a scaredy cat.

Who’s Nancy shakin’ in her boots over? Seemingly, it’s the Quad Squad. Trump said House Democrats are following Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her compadres, not the Speaker. Is that why Pelosi moved forward with impeachment, despite being unable to name a “high crime or misdemeanor” that would warrant it? When asked about impeachment in the House, here’s what he had to say:

“They all vote with AOC and plus three; Nancy Pelosi is petrified of them.”

The Donald believes she has good reason to fear: Republicans are coming to oust her.

“I mean, she’s afraid that she is going to lose her position. Nancy Pelosi will lose her speakership right after the election when the Republicans take over the House.”

As for impeachment, the President insisted it’s a witch hunt, just like Russian collusion:

“Should’ve never happened. Just like Russia collusion should’ve never happened. That was a witch hunt. … Should’ve never happened.”

But Trump’s not worried about it, because he’ll be fine in the Senate:

“It think this: We have a great relationship in the Senate. I have a 95% approval rating in the Republican Party. I believe the senators look at this as a hoax, it’s a witch hunt, it’s a disgrace.”

Despite his allegation of Nancy knockin’ at the knees, Pelosi appears to think the same of Trump. On Wednesday, CNN reported the Speaker claiming he’s afraid of House Democrats and the probe that’s coming:

“I think the President knows the argument that can be made against him and he’s scared, and so he’s trying to divert attention from that to where (he’s) standing in the way of legislation.”

That’s all fine and good, but the Dems look to be in a real pickle. Despite their talk, in addition to the reasons I covered here, many congressional Dems may not want to be associated with something as pointed as an actual impeachment.

The Daily Wire stated it aptly:

Democrats have been sidestepping the requirement to bring impeachment proceedings to a full vote on the House floor. More than 30 members of the House Democratic caucus represent congressional districts that voted for Trump during the 2016 election cycle. The Democratic Party largely gained its House majority after a wave of the party’s moderate candidates were elected in those purple districts during the 2018 election cycle.

Nonetheless, putting aside the ravings of AOC, it seems to me the more seasoned Dems in the House may be interested in impeachment because they already know 2020’s a no-go. They have no candidate on deck who can possibly defeat The Donald, and they appear to have given up arguing the superiority of their policies a long time ago.

I miss those days — the Idea days.

GUEST POST: Saudi Arabia Oil Field Attack Highlights Importance Of U.S. Energy Infrastructure

Westlake Legal Group Todd-Johnson-620x869 GUEST POST: Saudi Arabia Oil Field Attack Highlights Importance Of U.S. Energy Infrastructure Todd Johnson Saudi Arabia Oil Attacks Iran Infrastructure Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story Energy Infrastructure Energy Capitalism Allow Media Exception

North Carolina State Senator Todd Johnson (R-Union) [Image: Wikipedia]

This guest op-ed was written by North Carolina State Senator Todd Johnson — Ed. 

The recent spike in gas prices after the Saudi Arabia oil field attack is an important reminder of how foreign oil can have a big impact here in the U.S.  Just days after the attack on the other side of the globe, Americans saw gas prices spike across most the country. That’s why it’s critical for the U.S. to strengthen our energy resources and prioritize our energy infrastructure to reduce our dependency on oil in the Middle East and enable greater economic stability here at home.

Pipelines are a critical part of that energy infrastructure, providing us the energy necessary to fuel most of our daily lives, whether it’s to heat our homes, drive to work, or generate electricity. Pipelines are also one of the safest and cost-effective ways to transport crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum, and the reason the United States has the largest network of energy pipelines world-wide.

Each year, over 2.5 million miles of pipelines in the U.S. safely deliver trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and hundreds of billions of ton/miles of liquid petroleum products. Several of those pipelines are located in the Midwest with nearly 30% of our nation’s crude oil running through Minnesota by pipeline and 20% in Wisconsin.

That’s why the recent Minnesota Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of allowing the Line 3 pipeline project to continue is so important. It puts additional pressure on Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz to give the green light to regulators to allow pipeline construction to build. And it denies a petition from opposition groups to further review an Environmental Impact Statement, an already rigorous safety review process that the company must go through to ensure a project is safe for the environment and surrounding community.

The non-profit environmental groups like Honor the Earth and Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe are protesting the replacement of an aging pipeline that currently runs through North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. This is another classic case of outside groups strategically attempting to further their agenda by holding up projects in litigation. While they present themselves as environmental groups, many of them are funded by billionaires with competing interests like transporting crude by railway.

In addition to bolstering our energy infrastructure, there are economic benefits that result from pipelines – a fact that’s ignored by these outside groups. Pipeline companies contribute millions, sometimes even billions to a state’s economy during construction and many years after in tax revenue. Pipeline construction creates jobs and income which results in increased demand in consumer goods and services.

Opposing the pipeline is also out of step with Minnesota itself and the many other groups and communities who support this pipeline being rebuilt. The Laborers’ International Union of North America and Iron Range labor union members in Minnesota, for example, are vocal proponents of the pipeline’s construction because it will create more union jobs and enrich the local economy.

The bottom line is that the recent Minnesota Supreme Court decision is a positive step for bolstering U.S. energy resources. Without pipelines like Line 3, we are undermining our energy infrastructure and the ability to safely, affordably deliver the energy resources that are needed to power our everyday life. This, in turn, helps the U.S. reduce our dependence on oil in the Middle East and strengthens American energy leadership. That’s something every American should get behind.

North Carolina State Senator Todd Johnson (R) represents North Carolina’s District 25. He also serves as a member of the North Carolina Board of Community Colleges.

Van Jones: Democrats are in a Lose-Lose Situation with Impeachment. Is He Right?

Westlake Legal Group van-jones-cnn-SCREENSHOT-620x346 Van Jones: Democrats are in a Lose-Lose Situation with Impeachment. Is He Right? Van Jones Uncategorized Politics Joe Biden Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Erin Burnett donald trump democrats Congress collusion Allow Media Exception 2020

[Screenshot from MRCTV.org via Twitter, https://twitter.com/mrctv/status/1180155618302320640]

 

Political commentator and former Obama advisor Van Jones told CNN’s Erin Burnett Thursday night the Democrats are really shooting themselves in the foot.

Boy, are they.

Erin asked Van what he’s heard from the many voters to whom he’s spoken regarding Dems’ drive to the impeachment hoop.

Van believes the coordinated attack is just going to galvanize Republicans in an election year.

He makes a good point:

“You know, it’s a tricky thing, the impeachment process, because for some Republicans it makes them want to rally around the flag.”

He recalled a similar situation in the 90’s:

“I remember when I was anti-Bill Clinton from the left and they tried to impeach him and suddenly Clinton was my best friend.”

He’s right. It’s the nature of things.

Take two middle school brothers who fight constantly. Regardless of their turmoil with one another, if you mess with one, they’ll both beat the snot out of you. People come together when there’s a threat.

But, in Van’s estimation, those opposing Trump are in a mess if they don’t impeach, too — their base is expecting action.

“So, I think you get cross currents in this thing. At the same time, Democrats are in a lose-lose situation. If they don’t do something, their own base is going to feel disappointed, and you feel like maybe Trump gets away with too much. If you go through with the impeachment, though, you can divide the country further, you can take the oxygen away from your candidates and you still don’t solve the problem of foreign interference.”

He may not be wrong, though it’s for silly reasons. Over the last two years or so, Democratic leaders and talking heads on the boob tube have said some of the most absurd things I’ve ever heard come out of people’s mouths. I’ve been astonished by the move from debate of issues to totally outlandish, self-cancelling claims about Trump and his supporters — like Trump wants to round up people and murder them (here), is setting up leaders to be murdered (here), is a white supremacist who’s afraid of black people (here), aches to be an evil dictator (here), and is potentially part of a “thousand-year reich” (here). Not to mention that’s he’s conspiring against America and in cahoots with foreign enemies.

I believe that rhetoric has frightened and inflamed a portion of the populace, which is now demanding action for the boogie man to be booted from Pennsylvania Avenue.

But here’s another lose-lose: The more they take the ladle and scoop out Ukraine, the more Joe Biden’s gonna be in the soup.

Joe’s political worth will be sacrificed for the thrill of the hunt via impeachment proceedings, which will leave Dandelion Elizabeth Warren to face Venus Fly Trap Trump on the debate stage. That poor lady will be absolutely eviscerated.

And voilà: Trump 2020.

The Democrats have really blown it.

Can You Say Coup? Rashida Tlaib Reveals Democrat Discussions to Arrest Trump Officials

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-04-at-2.45.41-PM Can You Say Coup? Rashida Tlaib Reveals Democrat Discussions to Arrest Trump Officials wilbur ross white house Trump White House rashida tlaib Politics Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump doj democrats Congress Attorney General Barr Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

President Donald Trump has broken Democrats and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) showed by just how much during an event she was holding with supporters on Tuesday.

Tlaib was caught on video revealing that Democrats have been discussing how and whether to arrest Trump officials for not complying with subpoenas.

From Free Beacon:

Tlaib told Detroit constituents at her “Congress, Coffee, and Conversation” event on Tuesday that lawmakers are focused on how best to take cabinet members into custody. “This is the first time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” she said. “So they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do we hold them?” ….

Tlaib said her colleagues are “trying to tread carefully” in this “uncharted territory.”

“I will tell them they can hold all those people right here in Detroit,” she joked. “We’ll take care of them and make sure they show up to the committee hearings.”

It’s not clear who specifically she is talking about arresting, although Democrats have had contempt votes against people such as Attorney General William Barr and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.

First, it wouldn’t be the D.C. police, it would be the Capitol Police.

But secondly, not responding to a subpoena isn’t “uncharted territory.” The Obama administration made it practically a cottage industry to avoid Congressional requests for information when they were embroiled in the many scandals – Benghazi, the IRS, Hillary Clinton, spying on Congress.

Indeed, former Attorney General Eric Holder, who described himself both as Obama’s “wingman” and his “boy,” was held in contempt for failing to turn over documents that were under subpoena in the Fast and Furious fiasco. The GOP didn’t arrest him. That was a real scandal not the manufactured angst they had against Ross and Barr over the unreacted Mueller report and the citizenship question on the census, respectively.

Holder withheld information about the Obama administration involvement in shipping about 2000 guns to Mexico that were then used to kill hundreds of Mexicans and at least one American law enforcement officer, CBP agent Brian Terry. Small difference.

One of the Obama administration weapons was even found when the U.S. ultimately nailed “El Chapo” in 2016.

From National Review:

Now, Fast and Furious is back in the news. Earlier this month, a raid on the hidey-hole of drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman recovered not only the notorious drug lord, but a (“massive”) .50-caliber rifle, capable of stopping a car or shooting down a helicopter, that originated with the ATF program. Rest easy, though: Only 34 such rifles were sold through the program.

The news comes just days after a federal judge rejected President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege to deny Congress access to Fast and Furious–related records it requested back in 2012 as part of an investigation into the gun-walking operation. Despite the IRS scandal, Benghazi, and a host of other accusations of malfeasance against this White House, it remains this president’s sole assertion of executive privilege.

Yet Republicans didn’t arrest Holder. And that scandal, like the many many scandals of the Obama administration, went down the memory hole when the administration refused to comply.

On the other hand, the DOJ has found there was nothing criminal with Ross or Barr refusing to comply with Democrats’ political witch hunt game.

From Politico:

In a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said the Cabinet officials’ defiance of congressional subpoenas seeking information about the 2020 census “did not constitute a crime.”

“[A]ccordingly the department will not bring the congressional contempt citations before a grand jury or take any other action to prosecute the attorney general or the secretary,” Rosen wrote, citing legal precedents from administration of both parties.

But imagine, this is where Democrats are at right now. They literally want to arrest their opponents. Can we say coup, people? And they say Trump is a “threat to democracy” or norms? They are ripping up norms right and left while ignoring their own hypocrisy in the process.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was on the Trump-Ukraine call, has said he will not testify and countenance the improper impeachment effort, calling it an “attempt to intimidate, bully, and treat improperly the distinguished professionals of the Department of State,” according to Free Beacon. And because the Democrats have not brought the question of an impeachment inquiry to a formal vote of the full floor, GOP are contesting their ability to subpoena and proceed without a proper vote.

The Trump administration is not likely to fold over any time soon for the Democrats who are desperate to tag Trump with something as the election inches ever closer and their prospects, given their candidates, are deeply questionable.

The Washington Post Decides to Make Conspiracy Theories Great Again

Westlake Legal Group ReichTinfoil-620x350 The Washington Post Decides to Make Conspiracy Theories Great Again the washington post Politics media bias Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats conspiracy theories Allow Media Exception

Remember like five minute ago when conspiracy theories were terrible and never to be entertained?

The Washington Post apparently didn’t get their own memo, because even as they are pushing out pieces decrying “conspiracy theories” about Biden and Ukraine, the paper has done it’s own conspiracy fluffing in the past day. You’ll be surprised to learn that the Trump-Ukraine call transcript is likely fake, at least according to The New York Times’ little brother.

I’ll let Bill Kristol share the news, just to add a little bit of extra irony.

The sourcing on this piece is just hilarious. “One person familiar with the creation of records of calls with foreign leaders” is quite the lead in. For years, anyone who’s suspected funny business in regards to the Trump-Russia investigation was labeled a kook, even as more and more information has come forward to show otherwise. The Post has been at the forefront of those attacks. Yet, all it took was a “person familiar with the creation of records of calls with foreign leaders” for them to don the tin foil hat and start nodding along.

In reality, the ellipses you see in the transcript are perfectly normal, indicating pauses in conversation. The reason the transcript is in a rough form is because that’s what is transcribed on the fly. These aren’t being typed up for professional use. They are simply meant to create a record of the call.

There’s zero evidence anything was altered about the transcript. And to even believe that, you’d have to think that career bureaucrats, who largely have a natural aversion to Trump, are all in on a conspiracy to allow this to go down without saying anything.

The Post doesn’t care though. They ran to print with a wild conspiracy theory and Bill Kristol was there to propagate it. Remember this the next time they gnash their teeth over questions about John Brennan or Hunter Biden.

Time For The Democrat Party Rank And File, To Rise Up

Westlake Legal Group 15D1988F-0A60-4111-B96F-03D41FD369AB-620x319 Time For The Democrat Party Rank And File, To Rise Up Uncategorized squad republicans Politics pelosi investi Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story elections donald trump democrats corruption biden Allow Media Exception

Oliver Cromwell
Courtesy of Historic-UK.com

Rank and file Democrats who care about their party and their country, need to rise up and wrest back control of the Democrat Party. Today’s Democrat party bears absolutely no resemblance to the party of our fathers and grandfathers. They are nowhere near being a loyal opposition party—a party that might disagree on methods, but nevertheless values and supports shared national objectives.

Why? The Leadership. The Leadership of today’s Democrat party can be divided into two camps. One, is the corrupt old guard of Tammany Hall or Daly Machine days. That camp has always corrupted the power of office for personal enrichment. They are the ones who came into government with personal net worths of less than a million dollars and then somewhere along the way and despite a government pay check of less than 200 grand per year, manage to amp their personal wealth up into 10’s even 100’s of millions. The most recently open and notorious member of that camp is of course, former Vice President Joe Biden, Democrat Presidential Primary candidate and along with his son, subject of a Ukrainian corruption investigation.

Then there is the new breed, who are flat out, insane. They advocate the murder of children in the womb. Even if one of their intended victims manages to survive the procedure and lies gasping for life on a stainless steel clinic table, they are still willing to see it killed. While busily screeching for a “living wage!’ they are busily importing more uneducated, low-skilled, some criminal, some diseased people who, drive down wages, take entry level jobs, denying low skill Americans the opportunity to get a leg up and who refuse to assimilate into our culture.

Speaking of culture, they browbeat normal Americans into believing they must actively promote child abuse in the form of genital mutilation of minors in order to promote the “transgender” agenda. On more than a few occasions they have used the full force of law to drive real Americans into penury for defending their right NOT to participate in ceremonies promoting deviant and disordered behavior.

The list goes on and on….and it ain’t just the Democrats. There is a special circle in Dante’s Inferno reserved for pusillanimous RINOs such as Mitt Romney, YEB! or like Jeff Flake…John McCain is already keeping a seat warm for him. They are flat out evil. The only reason they give any consideration at all to the folks they purport to represent, is so they are available on a two year and four year cycle to flip the lever “D.”

For our Republic to survive, it needs two healthy parties who each believe in the Constitution and the American culture of individual liberty. Lifetime Democrats need to get rid of these leaders—and right now. They should borrow from Oliver Cromwell

It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.

Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?

Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place. Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!

Watch: Ocasio-Cortez Proposes New Act that Gives Welfare to Illegal Immigrants

Westlake Legal Group ocasio-cortez_1-620x349 Watch: Ocasio-Cortez Proposes New Act that Gives Welfare to Illegal Immigrants socialism Politics open borders immigration Illegal Immigrants Front Page Stories Featured Story entitlements embrace act democrats Bernie Sanders AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Yup, you read that headline correctly. New York Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D) advocated for handing out entitlements to illegal immigrants.

In a short video, you can see AOC introducing two acts, one of which she calls the “embrace act,” that would essentially grant welfare to immigrants regardless of their citizenship status.

“The Embrace Act, we are doing the same, and we are ending—and it’s a piece if legislation that ends similar discrimination based on documentation status,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“It’s kind of a next-level piece of legislation, and it is something that people are going to say ‘Why would you do that?’ I believe that we need to acknowledge the contributions that immigrants make in America,” she added. “And if you, if you, contribute to our society, I believe that you should benefit from our society.”

It’s not “open borders,” but it might as well be. Providing welfare and entitlements to people who aren’t even citizens of this country would not only break our system, it would encourage far more people to flood into this country to reap the benefits of simply being alive without having to contribute anything back.

Not even Sen. Bernie Sanders was willing to go that far. In fact, he expressly rejected it under the understanding that we would never be able to support everyone.

“…open the borders, my god, there’s a lot of poverty in this world and you’re going to have people from all over the world, and I don’t think that is something we can do at this point. Can’t do it. So that is not my position,” said Sanders.

Once again, AOC failed to provide any indication as to how she would pay for such a monumental addition to our financial burden as a nation, especially given all the other free things she wants to provide everyone with such as free medical care and free college.

If she’s possibly found the land of money trees, or maybe even has the power to turn objects into gold, then perhaps she could share that knowledge with us and we can get on providing all this free stuff to everyone. Seeing as they’re likely not to exist at all, maybe Ocasio-Cortez should scale back sharing her socialist pipe dreams with us.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Hunter Biden failed the drug test last year and was discharged in February. In a statement issued Thursday, Oct. 16, Biden doesn’t say why he was discharged. He says he’s embarrassed that his actions led to his discharge and that he respects the Navy’s decision. The vice president’s office declined to comment.(AP Photo/Nick Wass, File)

Ukraine’s top prosecutor is now confirming that they will be doing a review of the investigation into Burisma, the company which had Hunter Biden on its board.

Ruslan Ryaboshapka, the country’s prosecutor general, announced at a press conference that they would be doing a review of 15 cases including that of the Biden-linked firm to make sure that they were properly investigated.

According to Fox, Ryaboshapka said, “We are now reviewing all the cases which were closed, fragmented or investigated earlier in order to make a decision on cases where illegal procedural decisions were taken.”

He said he had not been influenced by anyone to make this decision and was making it of his own accord.

Questions have been raised about Hunter Biden being on the board of Burisma despite having no experience in the energy business, but while his father, then Vice President Joe Biden, was the point man on Ukraine for the Obama administration.

These questions were intensified by video of Joe Biden in 2018 admitting on camera that in 2016 while he was Vice President, he pressured Ukraine to fire the prosecutor at the time. Biden said if they did not fire him, he would get the U.S. to deny them aid. The prosecutor at the time, Viktor Shokin, has said under oath in an affidavit that he was in fact investigating Burisma and that he was fired because of Biden’s pressure. Biden claims he wanted Shokin fired because of corruption.

From Fox News:

It is unclear how much money Hunter Biden made while serving on the board of the firm, but reports have estimated he made up to $50,000 per month — which would be up to $600,000 a year.

Fox News has also obtained notes from an interview Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani conducted—with Yuriy Lutsenko, the former Ukrainian prosecutor who replaced Shokin and eventually closed the Burisma probe. He said he “believes Hunter Biden receives millions of dollars in compensation from Burisma,” according to the notes.

Fox News reported Wednesday on notes from another interview Giuliani conducted with Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor Biden helped oust, in which he claimed he was told by former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey R. Pyatt to back off the Burisma probe. According to interview notes, Shokin claimed Pyatt – currently the ambassador to Greece – told him to handle that investigation “with white gloves.”

My colleague Streiff has pointed out how unusual Hunter’s compensation is compared to others and based on his experience (or lack thereof).

Biden and Democrats have tried to excuse the behavior, calling the facts “debunked conspiracies.” Then they should have no problem with people looking into why the investigation was shut down and what was going on with Burisma, right?

Let’s see what the alleged “anti-corruption” Ryaboshapka has to say.

But the Bidens have to be more than a little concerned that someone with a reformer reputation is now looking into the closure of the case. Joe Biden isn’t going to like this.

Detroit’s Police Chief Fires Back at Rashida Tlaib Over Her Racist Comments About His Department

Westlake Legal Group 6380c248-42e9-42ad-92a4-1b81ffd7ed6f-620x317 Detroit’s Police Chief Fires Back at Rashida Tlaib Over Her Racist Comments About His Department rashida tlaib racism Politics Michigan Front Page Stories Featured Story Facial Recognition Technology double standard Detroit Police democrats Allow Media Exception

Michigan’s Rep. Rashida Tlaib embarrassed her state when she told Detroit Police Chief James Craig that when it comes to DPD’s facial recognition technology, the people running it should only be black.

Her reasoning? Apparently everyone who is not black can’t differentiate one black person from another.

“Non-African-Americans think African-Americans all look the same,” said Tlaib.

This is a very stupid thing to say on multiple levels. For one, it assumes that every other race is too stupid or ignorant to be able to tell one black person from another, which is demonstrably nonsensical.

Tlaib uses the example of people confusing Rep. John Lewis and Rep. Elijah Cummings. While it’s unfortunate that this happens, it’s not indicative of every other race of people being unable to identify one black person from another. This is simply because both men are actually very similar in background and appearance.

You won’t see people confusing Lewis with someone like Justice Clarence Thomas or Rep. Tim Scott.

In the video where Tlaib is making the suggestion, Craig can be seen attempting to reason with Tlaib only to be shut down. Afterward, Craig made the very measured response that he has faith in people regardless of their skin color or sex.

Later on, Craig noted that had he made a similar comment, Tlaib’s people would be screaming for his resignation.

“Here’s what’s troubling,” Craig said, “As a police chief who happens to be African-American in this city, if I made a similar statement, people would be calling for my resignation … Is it a double-standard?

The answer to Craig’s question is “yes.”

That Tlaib can say something like that without a meltdown is indicative of a very serious problem, not just in our media, but our society. What Tlaib said was clearly racist toward, not just white people, but anyone who isn’t black and has the training and expertise to do this job.

This was the point Craig also brought up.

Tlaib insulted many people here with a short-sighted position on top of a virtue signal about our police departments being prone to racially profiling all at the same time. However, no one will come after Tlaib. If the shoe were on the other foot and a Republican Tlaib suggested that only white people should run the board to prevent black police from mistaking one white person from another, there’d be eight kinds of hell to pay.

Yes, Craig, it is a double-standard.
