As a retired Marine, I’ll admit that it pains me to see a Marine Corps officer reduced to being little more than a glorified usher, especially in light that the Corps has at least half-a-million dollars invested in that young captain. But that’s a different rant for a different day.
At the funeral service for President George H.W. Bush held today at Washington, D.C.’s National Cathedral (Episcopal), there was a rather tense moment in the Presidential Pew.
As the current POTUS and FLOTUS were escorted to their designated seats in the front pew, it’s tradition that all surviving ex-Commanders-in-Chiefs and former-First Ladies sit in the same pew with the current residents of the White House.
As seen in the video below, the Trumps were, by tradition, the last seated.
Entering first, Melania Trump exchanged handshakes with the Obamas, Bill Clinton, and waved at the furthest seated from them, the Carters. President Carter was caught on camera briefly responding to Melania’s wave.
Last seated, President Trump exchanged handshakes with the Obamas. While President Clinton at least looked towards President Trump (or maybe he was still eye-molesting Melania), Hillary remained stone faced.
The “look” on Hillary’s face is reminiscent of the same facial expression she gave to the families of those killed under her watch in Benghazi.
While the Establishment Media calls for armed revolution in the streets, and then gives a platform to every Hollywood limousine liberal who demands that everyone think exactly the same way they do, the Fox News Channel is busying themselves censoring anyone who should make an off-color remark regarding Hillary Clinton.
Case in point: US Air Force vet and current Director of Hispanic Engagement for Turning Point USA, Anna Paulina found herself in a conversation with anchor Rick Leventhal and Democrat Doug Schoen discussing why Hillary Clinton is still in the news, a full two years after her defeat at the hands of Donald Trump.
It was then that Paulina made the off-handed commented of Barack Obama’s Secretary of State: “She won’t go away. She’s like herpes.”
Needless to say, the Establishment Media is calling for Ivanka Trump’s head on a silver platter. Invariably, whenever America’s leftists catch a whiff of any members of the Trump family misusing government email, it’s time for a little Pavlovian salivating.
Just don’t ask the same liberal elite to offer anything as gauche as details or specifics.
As just about everyone is already aware, Ivanka Trump used her official governmental email for personal use, according the anti-Trump swamp rag better known as the Washington Post.
Even the National Inquirer isn’t that sensationalist. But it gets better.
In the reliably hard-leftist leaning Salon.com, America’s Used Car Salesman, Joe Scarborough of PMSNBC fame said through clenched teeth regarding Ivanka, “She knew better, and she chose to break the law anyway.”
In an interview with the reliably liberal Kara Swisher, the twice-failed presidential candidate stated on the Recode Decode podcast that her problem with distinguishing between Sen Cory Booker (D-NJ) and ex-Attorney General Eric Holder is that “I know, they all look alike.”
Swisher immediately corrected her, “No they don’t.” But as soon as the reliably liberal audience roared with laughter, Swisher pathetically attempted to play along as if she knew that Clinton’s tone-deaf comment was actually a joke. Swisher’s I-meant-to-do-that comeback, “Ohhh, well done!”
Anyhow, that’s exactly what Clinton’s comment was… a joke. In very poor taste, without a doubt, but still nothing more than a very, very bad joke.
Here’s the point, could you imagine if President Trump said this?
The liberal media would be airing this 24/7 until 2020.
I was honest enough to admit she was joking, liberals should be honest enough to admit if this was the other war around, the MSM would give this non-stop coverage.
We all know that the fake news industry is purposefully ignoring this, so the only way this video will get out is if you please share.
By definition, a true civil war is when two legitimate claimants to government attempt by force of violence to take control of an entire nation while crushing the opposition.
England had a civil war. So did Russia, Ireland and Spain. Technically, America never fought a civil war. The Confederate States of America never sought to conquer the North. They just wanted their independence, which was constitutionally correct at the time.
But for the sake of understanding the mainstream moniker, I’ll refer to The War When The North Invaded America simply as “The Civil War”.
“potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” – Text message from Lisa Page to Peter Strzok, Sept 2, 2016.
Possibly every conservative news junkie in the nation is already aware of long-since fired Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe seeking complete and total immunity if he spills his guts to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
First of all, I’ll make clear that there will be a concerted effort on my part to mostly use left-leaning news sources only. That way I can’t be accused of parroting conservative news portals.
With that qualifier out of the way, CNN is reporting as of June 5, 2018;
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has requested the Senate Judiciary Committee provide him with immunity from prosecution in exchange for testifying at an upcoming congressional hearing focused on how senior officials at the FBI and Justice Department handled the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, according to a letter obtained by CNN.
“Under the terms of such a grant of use immunity, no testimony or other information provided by Mr. McCabe could be used against him in a criminal case,” wrote Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for McCabe, to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, who has requested McCabe testify next week.
I’ll readily admit that sometimes the Hillary Clinton email scandal has more twists and turns than a 10 gallon pot of spaghetti, so I’ll try my level best to stay out of the weeds.
Just keep two things in mind;
CNN is openly and clearly reporting that McCabe is that figurative drowning man not afraid to clutch at swords.
As NBC News reported back in February of this year, two very prominent persons involved in the same Clinton email cover-up implicated none other than Barack Obama in the same scandal.
Specifically, NBC noted that the Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Sen. Ron Johnson, (R-Wis.), “focuses on the FBI’s Investigation into the scandal and includes 384 pages of texts between Peter Strzok, one of the top FBI agents who was assigned to the Mueller investigation, and Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer.”
But for those who may have forgotten what Sen. Johnson’s investigation uncovered;
Johnson suggests in the report that one particular set of texts between Strzok and Page — who were romantically involved — revealed that the two had been tasked with preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey because Obama apparently wanted to be kept abreast of the case.
In a Sept. 2, 2016, text exchange, Page writes that she was preparing the talking points because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” Potus is an acronym for president of the United States.
Hillary Clinton really does come off as someone physically incapable of accepting personal responsibility for her losing the 2016 presidential election.
This broad has blamed everyone from Donald Trump to Bernie Sanders to the Democratic National Committee.
Just a few examples, as cited by Newsweek. Not exactly a big supporter of President Trump;
James Comey (Trump’s fault)
Self-Hating Women (Trump’s fault)
Low-Information Voters (Trump’s fault)
Voter Suppression (Trump’s fault)
Russia (Trump’s fault)
Her Own Campaign Staff
The Democratic National Committee
Campaign Finance Law (Trump’s fault)
The Electoral College (Trump’s fault)
The Basket of Deplorables (Trump’s fault)
Herself (but only if you count her email scandal as a “dumb” mistake)
But now comes the word the Hil has another finger to point at someone other than herself.
Specifically, while giving a speech in Mumbai, India, Clinton pointed an accusatory finger straight at The Donald as reported by The Daily Caller;
“Look at the map of the United States. There’s all the red in the middle where Trump won. Now I win the coasts, I win Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product,” Clinton claimed.
“So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign ‘Make America Great Again’ was looking backwards. ‘You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs, you don’t want to, you know, see that Indian-Americans are succeeding more than you are — whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.’”
“So it was a symptom, but it was also a cause, because having someone run for president who voices those ideas, who rejects so much of the American story and our values was also the underlying cause as well.”
Nothing drives Democrats up the wall faster than the truth. Especially when it comes to talking about building a wall.
To assist my fellow citizens who agree with me that we’ve endured at least the past quarter century at the receiving end of a millions strong silent invasion of no-skill/low-skill laborers.
Much like the Democrat convulsions over Trump possibly allowing Obama’s DACA dying on the vine, how quick those same Democrats fail to remember that DACA was an Obama “temporary fix” with no guarantee of immunity, amnesty or to be seen as “a pathway to citizenship”.
And let’s not forget that the travel ban on certain Muslim-majority nation didn’t originate with Trump, but with Barack Hussein.
Anyhow, with the Border Wall about to be in the news non-stop for the next few weeks, here’s a couple if videos you may want to share with those who wish to rail against Trump, just show them these videos;
The New York Observer published on July 28, 2017 that Weinstein’s “picturesque Amagansett home” was up for sale for a mere $13.5 million.
With buyers a bit an the apprehensive side, Weinstein dropped the asking price to a bit more moderate $12.4 million. Yet what’s even more nauseating from the Observer was their pretty desperate name dropping;
And along with the water views, you’re likely to see many a famous face in the celeb-loved locale. In fact, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton rented the home just next door to Weinstein and [his wife, Georgina] Chapman’s in 2014 and 2015.
Interesting how they described Weinstein’s multi-zillion dollar home in The Hamptons as “picturesque”.
As it turns out, the ever-creepy knowledge that know sexual predators Harvey and Bill had their own version of Summer Lovin’ among the dunes, rest assured that The Harv made sure he was readily available for some Hillary time.
In what presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway describes as “like a movie,” she retells what happened leading up to and at the moment Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff called to concede on election night.
But not before Clinton’s Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, arrogantly contacted Kellyanne the evening prior to election day to orchestrate what he thought was going to be Trump’s concession call to Hillary.
Yet fortunately for Mook, it was Clinton’s trusted aide and confidant Huma Abedin who was tasked with eating a rather large helping of humble pie election night.
The president’s campaign-manager-turned-advisor recalled the historic moment in a talk at the National Review Institute’s Ideas Summit in Washington, DC Friday morning.
The night before the election, Conway said she and Clinton’s team spoke over email about when the concession call would happen.
‘Robby Mook (Clinton’s campaign manager) had agreed the night before through an email to me that within 15 minutes of the AP calling the race for Secretary Clinton, they would wait 15 minutes and then she would take to the podium and declare victory.
‘So he was basically saying that you have 15 minutes for Mr Trump to get out there [and give a concession speech] or she’s going to declare victory either way.
‘And then he said in the event that Mr Trump wins, Secretary Clinton will call him within 15 minutes of the AP,’ Conway said with a wink, implying that Clinton staffers were confident their boss would win.
But Clinton’s camp held up their end of the deal. Conway said that she looked down to see her phone was ringing.
‘I look down – literally it was like a movie – my phone is ringing and it said “Huma Abedin” [Clinton’s longtime aide]. And I said, “Hey, Huma. What’s up?”
‘And she’s absolutely lovely, she really is. And she’s like ‘Hi Kellyanne, Secretary Clinton would like to speak to Mr. Trump.” And I said, “Now?” And she said, “Is he available?” And I said, “We’re very available!”
‘And I handed [Mr Trump] the phone. My husband took a screenshot of that – the 2:30am. I handed him the phone and he and Vice President Pence and their wives were there and the rest is history.
‘So that was just really a remarkable moment and I think it was a remarkable moment for anybody, any David fighting a Goliath, frankly,’ Conway recalled.
Following the call, President Trump gave his victory speech – marking a break with tradition since the loser of the race usually gives a concession speech first. Clinton gave her concession speech later in the day.
