Mike Pence is Right: Ilhan Omar Has no Place on the Foreign Affairs Committee

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why did it take so long? – It took a Brooklyn jury well over a week to come back with a verdict finding Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty, at long last. What are they putting in the water in Brooklyn that made this so hard? Seriously, unless there was some serious jury tampering going on, how could there possibly be any reasonable doubt in anyone’s mind that one of the most vicious, brutal and guilty beasts on the face of the earth was on trial here?

At any rate, the brute will remain behind bars for a long, long time, most likely the rest of his sorry life, so at least justice was done in the end.  But damn, where was the doubt here?

Another no good terrible very bad day for the Enemy Within. – Minnesota’s radical Muslim Democrat Ilhan Omar had another bad, and frankly idiotic day on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, as the fallout from her anti-Semitic tweet storm on Monday continued.

First, a clever parliamentary maneuver by the GOP minority in the House forced a vote on a resolution affirming America’s support for Israel and condemning those who endorse “movements that deny Israel’s right to exist,” something Omar has done repeatedly in the past. The move caught Democrats by surprise, and the many anti-Semitic among them had to scramble to decide whether to reveal their true nature or vote “yes” on the language.

In the end, all those present decided to support the language, resulting in a 424-0 vote in favor. Amazingly, not one of the media outlets has chosen to report on the only real salient question here, which is how did the Enemy Within vote on the measure? After all, the House has 435 members, so 11 are unaccounted for in that 424 number. We know that two voted “present”, but what about the others? The fake news media appears incapable of finding out.  Amazing.

Regardless, the unanimous vote amounts to a clear rebuke of Omar and her fellow anti-Semites on Capitol Hill.

A little earlier in the day, the Enemy Within used a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee – on which San Fran Nan has chosen to plant her – to ask Special Envoy to Venezuela Elliott Abrams completely off-topic “questions” that were really just accusations. The topic of the hearing was ostensibly the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in the socialist utopia of Venezuela, but Omar decided this would be a great opportunity to hurl accusations and insults at Abrams about his supposed role in … wait for it … the IRAN CONTRA SCANDAL!

I kid you not, the Enemy Within is so depraved, so despicable, such a typical…well…such a typical Democrat that she spent her entire allotted 5 minutes reading insults at Abrams from a document someone else had written for her. Her performance was so juvenile and inappropriate that even the ultra-leftwing Daily Beast published a post condemning her actions.

Don’t misunderstand – I have no sympathy at all for Elliott Abrams, a war-mongering neo-con who should not have any role whatsoever in a Trump Administration, and am frankly befuddled why Secretary of State Pompeo chose him for what is supposed to be a “peace-making” role. But witnesses at any congressional hearing, regardless of their backgrounds or which political party happens to be in the majority, should expect committee members to stick to the supposed reason for the hearing in their questioning. And no witness should be expected to sit quietly by as a member of congress, conveniently exempt from the nation’s laws governing libel and slander, impugns their reputation with ad hominem attacks in a public hearing.

Granted, Omar’s behavior in yesterday’s hearing has become just par for the Democrat course over the past two years, but when you’re a Democrat and your behavior is so far out of accepted norms that you draw the condemnation of a leftwing lapdog fake media outlet like the Daily Beast, you have definitely gone too far.

More than anything else, Omar’s despicable behavior yesterday proves exactly how wrong it is for this Enemy Within to have a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Simply condemning her anti-Semitic remarks is not enough – Speaker Pelosi needs to take some real action where this garbage member of congress is concerned. As Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday, she should remove the Enemy Within from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Warning: Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. These are Democrats we’re talking about here.

That is all.

The Paris Riots are a Rejection of Climate-Imposed Socialism

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This made my eyes water up a bit. – Here is a poem Sen. Orrin Hatch wrote to George and Barbara Bush in January 2013:

For those who can’t read the handwriting, here is the text:

You are resplendent in years
and worth all the tears
as we worry
and hurry
Through each eventful day
in this great land
made greater still
by God’s firm hand
and your strong will
that searched for the better way
every day

Orrin G. Hatch

Beautiful.

Speaking of Bush 41… – All Americans should commend the late President and his family for not using this week of mourning and remembrance as an occasion for lashing out and settling of grudges, as the McCain family did a few months ago. But then, the Bushes are just a different class of people, aren’t they?

Never one to hold a grudge, Bush 41 insisted that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump be invited to attend his funeral, for the simple reason that that is the gracious and proper thing to do. You can be sure that the eulogies delivered at the service will not be filled with bitterness and potshots taken at the current President, because that is not how the Bush family has ever done things. Again, just a different class of people.

The same cannot be said for our fake news media, sadly. It is as tiresome as it was predictable that the very same media outlets – and many of the same ageing on-air personalities – who demonized George H. W. Bush while he was Vice President and President have taken the occasion of his passing to pretend to have loved him while using it as an excuse to take shots at Donald Trump.

Even Fox News is participating in this sham. I had to just turn the television off yesterday evening as Bret Baier decided it would be a great idea to spend 10 minutes letting the execrable hacks Juan Williams and Mara Liasson go on and on about how “gracious” they always thought Poppy Bush was. That’s certainly a far cry from the despicable things Williams had to say about him while he was in office serving this country.

The reality is that Bush 41, like every other Republican in modern times, had an extremely contentious relationship with the media, which was almost as fake 30 years ago as it is today. At one point in his 1988 campaign he went so far as to ban Newsweek from traveling on his campaign plane due to that particular outlet’s absurdly biased coverage of him. And who will ever forget Poppy’s on-air shouting match with then-CBS News anchor Dan Rather in January 1988?

These were not people and organizations who loved and respected George Bush then, and they only feign love and respect for him now as a cheap means of attacking the current President.

That’s a truth that we all should keep in mind as this week rolls along and the rank hypocrisy emanating from our TV screens turns increasingly putrid.

Paris Burning Watch:

What? Our fake news media misleading the public on the reasons for all the rioting? How can this be? Oh, wait, nevermind.

NBC attempted to cast the rioters’ rage as class warfare over policies that favor the rich over the poor. ABC told its viewers the riots were caused by a simple “fuel tax”. Neither network dared mention the truth about these riots, which is that they are a backlash against taxes on carbon being imposed thanks to the French government’s commitments made under the Paris Climate Accords.

And guess what? The French are not the only people who are rejecting government efforts to seize their money and property as a fool’s means of “doing something” to fight the nebulous concept of “climate change.”

One of the main reasons why Angela Merkel is stepping down as Chancellor of Germany in the coming months is because the population there has become enraged by the massively higher utility costs imposed on them by Merkel’s Energiewende initiative that attempted to transform the country’s power sector from burning coal to getting electricity from hundreds of thousands of giant windmills.

In Canada, the province of Ontario is suing to halt the imposition of a federal carbon tax that child Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is attempting to impose, a tax that threatens to destroy that country’s economy. Just a few weeks ago, the voters in Washington State resoundingly rejected the Democrat-controlled government’s attempt to impose what would have been the first statewide carbon tax in the United States.

The riots in Paris are just the latest signal that we are coming to a real inflection point in the global climate scam. The Globalist community latched onto what they first called “global warming” and later shifted to “climate change” 30 years ago as their newest rationalization for the imposition of worldwide socialism. It is no accident at all that literally every proposed “solution” to “climate change” for the last three decades involves seizing the money and property of individuals so that the ruling class can “do something” about the “problem,” a problem which constantly evolves and which they can never seem to quite describe in a way the average person can understand.

But despite their increasingly shrill and desperate efforts at brainwashing, the public has never embraced this “climate change” as an issue of major concern. In every poll taken that asks voters to list the issues they are most concerned about, “climate change” always, without exception, ranks at or near the bottom.

And in reality, the globalists don’t even buy into their own rhetoric. As I pointed out yesterday, not one single signatory nation to the Paris Accords has met its emissions reductions obligations as of this point. Not one. Most of those countries – which includes every country on earth except the United States – have in fact seen their emissions rise significantly. They don’t even buy their own BS.

So, as all the elitist globalists flew on their carbon-emitting private jets into Poland for their latest multi-million dollar climate conference boondoggle, they were faced with 30 years of frustration at their efforts to impose socialist “solutions” and a growing backlash coming from those being imposed upon. This is where things become dangerous because history tells us that when leftists become frustrated, their sense of entitlement tends to turn them violent. We have certainly seen that here in America over the last two years, with the Democrat Party basically creating the violent Antifa movement following the 2016 elections.

Make no mistake about it: A few election losses and some riots in Paris will not deter these people. They believe they basically have a “divine right” to rule, and in their minds, any means are justified by the ends.

Stay vigilant.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Ocasio-Cortez: We Could Pay For Two-Thirds Of Medicare For All With That $21 Trillion We Spent On The Pentagon

Ok, now, pay attention here, class:  She just admitted that her bright “Medicare for All” idea would cost about $31 TRILLION dollars. You seriously just cannot make this stuff up.

That is all.
