Virginia Representative Brat calls CNN/Dems over Trump bashing

Collusion, collusion, collusion. That is all we hear, but, as Brat points out is whether or not a crime was committed is the important thing. We know the media is eager to get Trump on something, anything. We know that Democrats are using these stories/accusations/hyperventilating to deter the administration’s agenda. Could the president handle some of this better? Yes, of course. Should President use Twitter in a better way? Yep he could, and should. 

As already stated, most of the “Russia hacked the election” narrative is baloney. It is a nothing burger with extra nothing! The Republicans should, in my view, let the Democrats wail and whine. Republicans have the majority in both houses, use them! Scrap the filibuster, stop letting Chucky Schumer deter the agenda. Democrats do not play nice, why should Republicans?  Repeal ObamaCare rather than trying to keep most of it, get meaningful tax reform done, address the budget. And, if Democrats wish to help in any of those processes great. If not, then make damn sure to let the American people see who the party of no is. If the Democrats want to hold meaningless hearings, let them! Stop playing the Democrat’s game of delay, delay, and delay. In short lead!

The American people have given the GOP a majority of governorships. They have voted overwhelmingly for GOP majorities in legislatures across the nation. They voted for a Republican majority in the House, and in the Senate. They elected a Republican president. Given these facts Republicans ought to be able to see the writing on the wall. Americans gave the GOP a to do list. Now the GOP needs to start checking off items on that list!

Your DaleyGator Quote of the Day

Comes from Kurt Schlichter

The left would rather you lie and die than tell the truth and live.

A very simple statement of fact, but, like many simple statements of fact it is based in wisdom. Wisdom comes in large part from being able to accept simple truths. Schlichter possesses such an ability. Here is more of his piece at Townhall about the Left’s non-existent relationship with the truth

When it comes to terror, they prioritize their cocktail party clichés over our lives. They are willing to accept the risk of dangerous Muslim radicals infiltrating our country rather than admitting the truth and taking action. They refuse to bar people from jihadi hellholes, preferring to virtue signal in an orgy of self-congratulation over their own enlightenment. They refuse to deport scummy anti-American trash like punitive clitoral mutilation advocate Linda Sansour – hell, the liberal feminists have made that sharia-loving refugee from the Seventh Century their heroine.

And, of course, they eagerly seek to ensure patriotic Americans are just as disarmed and helpless as their Euro-victim counterparts. Nothing offends a liberal – especially their cowardly beta boyz – like a proud American with an AR15 shaking his head and saying, “Nope, I’m a citizen, not a subject.”

Go read it all, and do it now. Schichter is a direct guy, he does not pussy foot around, or pull punches. He is not worried about what names the left will call him. He is no David Frum, attending Beltway cocktail parties, spouting foolish things so Democrats will praise him for being their useful idiot. He is not some  political strategist hack talking head, he is a retired Army colonel, and, as his columns show, a thinker. Frankly, I wish we had Kurt Schlichter, and more like him in Congress. In short we need wisdom, and people who revere our founding principles to serve in DC. We need people who put the nation ahead of their own power and advancement. In short we need great Americans, and face it. Most of Congress just do not cut it. And yes, that includes too many Republicans.

Talking about Schichter reminds me of something. I think I need to create a list of great Americans. And no, I am not putting myself on this list. Nothing could make me do so, not even Salma Hayek standing at my front door wearing only a giant red bow begging me to put myself on this list!

Well, OK, I would do it for Salma because, well SALMA HAYEK! But seriously, my humility forbids such a self-congratulatory action. And, my humility is only surpassed by my greatness, soooooo

Why would anyone travel to a Stalinist Hellhole?

And by Stalinist hell hole I mean North Korea. My blogging friend Animal ponders away

Why the hell do people travel – voluntarily – to dangerous shitholes?  People should know better, but not everyone does.  Excerpt:

North Korea has returned one of its American prisoners — a University of Virginia student sentenced in March 2016 to 15 years of hard labor for allegedly stealing a regime propaganda sign who reportedly fell into a coma shortly after his sentence began.

The government of North Korea is evil, so why would anyone go there willingly?

What gets into these people’s heads?   Why the hell would anyone choose to go to a place like North Korea, that hellhole ruled by a stunted little gargoyle with bad hair from a long line of stunted little gargoyles with bad hair?  Does anyone have any idea what the hell was going through Mr. Warmbier’s head?

It is beyond me. It really is. But, I am happy this man is home, and I think we all pray for his recovery, and the release of any other American held in North Korea

Yes, the Trump administration is getting some things done

People should understand that despite the media bleating, the TRump administration is accomplishing many worthwhile aims. Fritz at A View From the Beach gives us one example of swamp draining

DoJ No Longer Sharing Lawsuit Payouts With Activist Groups

An important — and expensive — incentive for legal action involving the Department of Justice will come to an abrupt end. The DoJ announced this morning that it would end the practice of crafting settlements to lawsuits that resulted in significant financial awards to activists groups, a practice that had flourished in Barack Obama’s administration. A memo from Attorney General Jeff Sessions rejects this policy, saying any punitive and restorative damages collected in lawsuits should go to American taxpayers:

In a memo sent to 94 U.S. attorneys’ offices early Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would end the practice that allowed companies to meet settlement burdens by giving money to groups that were neither victims nor parties to the case.
Sessions said the money should, instead, go to the Treasury Department or victims.
“When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people—not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” Sessions said in a statement.

While the practice existed before the Obama administration, it flourished under Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. The DoJ would pursue a case against a big-pocketed defendant, and then push them into a settlement that suddenly included contributions to any number of Democratic Party interest groups. Not only was this an inappropriate politicization of the DoJ and of attorney-client interests, it was also a big incentive to sue people so as to pay off constituencies. The DoJ’s announcement called it a “slush fund,” but it operated more like a shakedown.

One of the most egregious things Team Obama did was marry his administration to left wing groups in this manner. That deplorable type of thing has now ended. It is important to remember that so many of the damaging things Obama did were not legislative, but via executive orders. So many of those need to go away, and many are being erased, remember the Dakota Pipeline?

Thursday, despite all the time, money and media savvy the left could throw at it, the Dakota Access Pipeline began making oil deliveries to customers. From the Associated Press:

Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners announced that the 1,200-mile line carrying North Dakota oil through South Dakota and Iowa to a distribution point in Illinois had begun commercial service. The Dakota Access pipeline and the Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline from Illinois to the Gulf Coast together make up the $4.8 billion Bakken Pipeline system, which ETP said has commitments for about 520,000 barrels of oil daily.

“The pipeline will transport light, sweet crude oil from North Dakota to major refining markets in a more direct, cost-effective, safer and more environmentally responsible manner than other modes of transportation, including rail or truck,” the company said in a statement.

Remember there are many aspects to draining a swamp, here is another example that Team Trump has accomplished

Gaining, I’m sure, the gratitude of everyone, who’s had to sit through a diversity seminar the Trump administration plans to minimize civil rights efforts in agencies

The Trump administration is planning to disband the Labor Department division that has policed discrimination among federal contractors for four decades, according to the White House’s newly proposed budget, part of wider efforts to rein in government programs that promote civil rights.

As outlined in Labor’s fiscal 2018 plan, the move would fold the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, now home to 600 employees, into another government agency in the name of cost-cutting.

Please move them to Fargo, ND in the process.

The proposal to dismantle the compliance office comes at a time when the Trump administration is reducing the role of the federal government in fighting discrimination and protecting minorities by cutting budgets, dissolving programs and appointing officials unsympathetic to previous practices.

The new leadership at the Environmental Protection Agency, for instance, has proposed eliminating its environmental justice program, which addresses pollution that poses health threats specifically concentrated in minority communities. The program, in part, offers money and technical help to residents who are confronted with local hazards such as leaking oil tanks or emissions from chemical plants.Don’t get me going on “environmental justice”

Under President Trump’s proposed budget, the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights — which has investigated thousands of complaints of discrimination in school districts across the country and set new standards for how colleges should respond to allegations of sexual assault and harassment — would also see significant staffing cuts. Administration officials acknowledge in budget documents that the civil rights office will have to scale back the number of investigations it conducts and limit travel to school districts to carry out its work.

Excellent! Despite what the Washington opines about these moves they are needed. This was never about protecting civil rights. These conclaves were about expanding Leftism and I say good riddance!

GOP develops some fortitude, goes Nuclear!

I bet this is eating up the Democrats. Chucky Schumer is probably hyperventilating. Certainly wish the GOP would be this united and decisive on ridding us of Obamacare

Senate Republicans successfully invoked the so-called “nuclear option” Thursday, eliminating the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees. This clears the way for President Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, to be confirmed as an associate justice to the high court.

The rules change came after Senate Democrats successfully blocked his nomination with the filibuster in place. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, then moved to change the rules so that the 60-vote threshold to advance Supreme Court nominations is now eliminated.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, had attempted to delay the effort to change the rules until after the two-week congressional recess, but failed to secure enough votes to proceed that way. He also tried to adjourn until the evening, but was also unsuccessful.

Under the new rules, the Senate took a simple majority procedural vote to limit debate to 30 hours on the nomination. The final confirmation vote will take place Friday evening.

Good news indeed. Given the rabid, and pathetic tactics of the Democrats over Gorsuch, he will be a tremendous justice I think.

Susan Rice, you little voyeur you

 Apparently Susan Rice really likes to watch, how very naughty

(Bloomberg)  White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government’s policy on “unmasking” the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like “U.S. Person One.”

The National Security Council’s senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was conducting the review, according to two U.S. officials who spoke with Bloomberg View on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. In February Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice’s multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this to the attention of the White House General Counsel’s office, who reviewed more of Rice’s requests and instructed him to end his own research into the unmasking policy.

Pirates Cove notes that if Rice engaged in such activities, well, that is a, how shall I put this, a felony!

For all the caterwauling from Democrats about Russia Russia Russia, they have no actual evidence. Even after trying these shenanigans, they still have no evidence. Here’s what they do potentially have

(Powerline)  In any event, if Rice and others conspired to leak confidential information or publicly disclose information about individuals like General Flynn, it would be a crime.

That crime would be a felony. A big one. And, as many are thinking, would Rice do this without orders? Orders from Obama?

I would say shame on Democrats, but they have no shame

The Democratic Party continues to leap towards extremism

When political parties lose big they re-examine their leadership, direction, messaging, and weigh how to stop losing. The Democratic Party, has been losing, and losing big ever since the 2010 midterm elections. They have lost the House, the Senate, suffered massive losses in state legislatures across the nation, and Republicans own a significant majority of governorships. And, in 2016, the Democrats lost the biggest prize, the White House. So, now the Democrats are looking at how they got here. And, seemingly, they have decided to go even further leftwards rather than understanding that their ideals and their rhetoric have turned off most American voters.

We can argue about how many voters identify as Conservative, or Liberal, but one thing is clear, most of us are not Leftists, and, to be honest the Democratic Party is now a leftist party. Worse  yet for them, they have chosen to show Americans just how left their party has gone.

They have openly embraced and defended radical groups like Black Lives Matter and, too often the anti-police, and yes racist ideology behind BLM. They have also never condemned the violence of the numerous riots that BLM and its leadership has encouraged. Instead the Democrats have at best soft sold, and at worst advocated for such thuggery. Anyone pointing out that BLM, the entire movement is based on lies is castigated as racist

They have, for all intents and purposes, embraced a policy of destroying our borders and our national sovereignty. They have belittled as racist anyone who dares challenge such nonsense. Again, Americans have seen how anyone who wants even basic immigration laws enforced is labelled a hate monger. Even basic common sense ideas like not allowing massive numbers of unvetted refugees to enter America is attacked by Democrats.

The Democrats have ramped up their anti second amendment rhetoric to new levels. Continually targeting the basic right of self-defense in a nation founded upon such a right is a losing strategy. And doing so while more and more Americans are buying firearms, training with firearms, and legally carrying firearms is a recipe for electoral dysfunction. Demonizing gun owning Americans, and gun rights groups as dangerous while also blaming them for criminal behavior? The Democrats have actually gone around that bend. 

How about defending Planned Parenthood after that group was busted for engaging in selling baby parts? Did the Democrats look at those tapes, gasp, and condemn such barbarity? No, they attacked those that exposed the barbarism, and defended giving $500,000,000 in tax dollars to Planned Parenthood. And yes, they told anyone who opposed giving tax dollars to such a group that they were anti-woman.

The list goes on, and on, and on.

Forcing ObamaCare on the country in the most partisan matter that can be imagined. Now, they oppose any effort to even talk of fixing the law. 

The repeated smearing of anyone who opposes anything the Democrats call for. And not just smearing, but often smearing in the worst possible manner.

Since the election, that rhetoric has gone up even more. Look at how Hollywood Leftists have trashed Americans who voted for Trump. Look at the rhetoric and vitriol directed towards those people. They have been called stupid, racist, sexist, and many things not printable here. And now, the Democrats are on the verge of choosing a radical Leftist and anti-Semite to head the Democratic National Committee. Now even life long Democrats are saying enough is enough

There has been powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), to elect Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) chairman.  If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting.  I will become an independent, continuing to vote for the best candidates, most of whom, I assume, will still be Democrats.  But I will not contribute to the DNC or support it as an institution.

My loyalty to my country and my principles and my heritage exceeds any loyalty to my party.  I will urge other like-minded people — centrist liberals — to follow my lead and quit the Democratic Party if Ellison is elected chairman.  We will not be leaving the Democratic Party we have long supported.  The Democratic Party will be leaving us!

Let me explain the reasons for this difficult decision.

Ellison has a long history of sordid association with anti-Semitism.  He worked with and repeatedly defended one of a handful of the most notorious and public anti-Semites in our country:  The Reverend Louis Farrakhan.   And worked with Farrakhan at the very time this anti-Semite was publicly describing Judaism as a “gutter religion” and insisting that the Jews were a primary force in the African slave trade.

Ellison has publicly stated that he was unaware of Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism.  That is not a credible statement.  Everyone was aware of Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism.  Farrakhan did not try to hide it.  Indeed, he proclaimed it on every occasion.  Ellison is either lying or he willfully blinded himself to what was obvious to everyone else.  Neither of these qualities makes him suitable to be the next chairman of the DNC.

Yes, Ellison is about as radical as they come frankly. He vehemently opposes the right to keep and bear arms, even though he lies about that now

Of course, there is more about Ellison that should deeply trouble anyone, regardless of political affiliation. The Weekly Standard takes a look at Ellison

The case against Ellison that should concern all Americans is moral. To borrow a term, he is a bad hombre.

When I speak about Ellison in the Twin Cities, I give a talk titled “The Secret History of Keith Ellison.” The title is facetious. Ellison’s history only became “secret” when he ran for Congress in 2006 and bet his campaign on three lies about his involvement with the Nation of Islam. I recounted and recalled Ellison’s “secret history” in the WEEKLY STANDARD articles “Louis Farrakhan’s First Congressman” and “The Ellison Elision.”

Yet Ellison’s history as an active member and local leader of the Nation of Islam remains a deep secret to Ellison’s constituents in his district. He blatantly lied about it when he was running in the 2006 DFL primary. He suppressed it in his 2014 memoir, My Country, ‘Tis of Thee. Indeed, in his memoir he presented himself as a critic of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

Go read the whole piece, and the other pieces linked there. They are eye openers. As are Ellison’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood

Ellison has associated with the Muslim American Society, a Virginia-based group founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in 1993 to act as the “overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,” according to federal prosecutors in 2007. The United Arab Emirates recently added the group to a list of terrorist organizations.

In 2008, the society paid for Ellison, a practicing Muslim, to make a 16-day pilgrimage, known as the hajj, to Mecca. He was joined on the trip by Asad Zaman, who sits on the board of the Muslim American Society’s Minnesota chapter. Zaman has contributed thousands of dollars to Ellison’s congressional runs, both before and after the Mecca trip.

For those who are not aware of what the Muslim Brotherhood really is, consider this

The Chicago Tribune published a lengthy exposé in 2004 about how the Muslim Brotherhood had operated in the United States for decades with a goal of achieving Islamic rule in America. Brotherhood leaders voted in 1993 to create the Muslim American Society to serve as the group’s public face in the United States.

“When the leaders voted, it was decided that Brotherhood members would call themselves the Muslim American Society, or MAS, according to documents and interviews,” wrote the Tribune. “They agreed not to refer to themselves as the Brotherhood but to be more publicly active. They eventually created a Web site and for the first time invited the public to some conferences, which also were used to raise money.”

An internal memo instructed members how to deflect if asked about their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood or its support for terrorism.

“If asked, ‘Are you the Muslim Brothers?’ leaders should respond that they are an independent group called the Muslim American Society. ‘It is a self-explanatory name that does not need further explanation,'” wrote the Tribune. “And if the topic of terrorism were raised, leaders were told to say that they were against terrorism but that jihad was among a Muslim’s ‘divine legal rights’ to be used to defend himself and his people and to spread Islam.”

A former member of the society who quit due to its “anti-American sentiments and its support for violence in the Middle East” told the Tribune that its leaders had a plan to “convert Americans to Islam and elect like-minded Muslims to political office” in the United States.

“If the Brotherhood puts up somebody for an election, Muslims would vote for him not knowing he was with the Brotherhood,” the man said.

Again, go read it all, it is powerful. And after reading it Here is more on Ellison

Is John Bolton the leading man for National Security Advisor?

According to the Free Beacon, yes

Senior White House officials and members of the National Security Council are pushing former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton as a replacement for ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

Among Bolton’s most vocal supporters are senior administration officials loyal to Flynn and who are upset at the general’s firing. Multiple sources described an effort by these Flynn loyalists to ensure that Bolton is selected as his replacement.

The selection of Bolton as the next national security adviser would empower Flynn’s allies still in the White House and send a message that his national security vision is represented within the Trump administration. Bolton is also favored by White House staffers who are opposed to the selection of any candidate who criticized President Trump during the 2016 campaign.

I think Bolton is the best choice, he grasps the threats facing the nation. Plus, anyone so despised by Democrats has to be qualified

Noted Race Baiter to skip Inauguration

Rep. John Lewis (Despicable Old Gas Bag) says that Trump is not the legitimate president. So, he will skip attending the inauguration. It will of course, also give Lewis more time to find RAAAAACISM everywhere he looks 

Via WaPo:

Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia says he doesn’t view Donald Trump as a legitimate president and will be skipping next Friday’s inauguration.

Lewis tells NBC’s “Meet the Press with Chuck Todd” that the Russians helped Trump get elected.

It will be the first inauguration Lewis has missed since he began serving in Congress three decades ago. Lewis says, “You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right.” Lewis testified this week against Trump’s attorney general nominee, Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama.

Is there a better argument for term limits than John Lewis? He has been in Congress since 1987.

Noted Marxist Senator introduces bill to end Electoral College

Another day, another hissy fit thrown by a Democrat this time by Barbara Boxer of Marxifornia

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) will introduce legislation on Tuesday to get rid of the Electoral College, after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election despite leading in the popular vote.

“In my lifetime, I have seen two elections where the winner of the general election did not win the popular vote,” Boxer said in a statement. “In 2012, Donald Trump tweeted, ‘The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy. I couldn’t agree more. One person, one vote!”

She added that Clinton, whom she supported, is “on track to have received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama.”

Well Trump has said many things, and reversed himself over the years. That is why he was my 38th choice out of the 17 GOP candidates. Let us pray he holds to his campaign promises. But, back to Boxer for a moment. This woman has no clue. What would she do if her bill passes and next election, the GOP candidate wins the popular vote but would have lost the election if the Electoral College was in place? We must grasp that our Founders put that system in place for a reason. Boxer, being a devoted Leftist, cares nothing for anything our Founders put in place. Here is more on the importance of the Electoral College

 

The Six Things Donald Trump MUST Do As President

APPOINT AN ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO WILL PROSECUTE HILLARY CLINTON
Hillary Clinton represents everything that is wrong with the American political class. She epitomizes establishment corruption and wanton criminality, and to ignore her blatantly felonious behavior is to condone it.

REPEAL & REPLACE OBAMACARE
Of all the ruinous policies enacted by the previous administration, none is so egregious and universally despised as The Affordable Care Act. It must be eradicated like the cancer that it is and replaced with a free-market-based alternative as soon as humanly possible.

BUILD THE WALL
This is the primary reason why Donald Trump was elected president, make no mistake about it, and while its construction will not, in and of itself, put an end to illegal immigration, it will symbolize a seriousness of intent with respect to border security that has been sorely lacking in our government for decades.

APPOINT ORIGINALISTS TO THE FEDERAL JUDICIARY
When it comes to our nation’s highest courts, there are essentially two types of judges who oversee them, originalists and activists. Activistic judges believe that our Constitution is a “living, breathing” document that they are free to modify from the bench at any time and for any reason they concoct. As for originalist judges, I think Justice Antonin Scalia put it best when he said: “Our manner of interpreting the Constitution is to begin with the text, and to give that text the meaning that it bore when it was adopted by the people.”

SLASH TAXES ON BUSINESS & RENEGOTIATE INTERNATIONAL TRADE DEALS
Reinvigorating the U.S. economy cannot occur without radically reducing taxes on the companies which make up its foundation. Business taxes amount to taxes on all Americans – be they CEOs, employees, stockholders or consumers – and trillions of dollars have been lost to our economy over the years due to government’s insistence on inflicting punitive taxation upon our nation’s most productive citizens. Adding insult to injury, pro-globalist trade policies like NAFTA have served to accelerate the decline of America’s economic vitality, and any attempts to reverse the trends of the past few decades without addressing these key points will prove futile.

DRASTICALLY CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING & REGULATION
Cutting government spending begins with downsizing the bureaucracies infesting it. This can be done through attrition, which simply means not hiring new federal employees to replace the ones who retire for an extended period of time. Beyond that, there are scores of agencies which should be eliminated entirely, like the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Housing & Urban Development, and the EPA for starters. Furthermore, federal regulations have become so pervasive that reducing their number by 50 percent would still leave the Federal Register with nearly 100,000 pages of growth-killing rules. Yes, certain regulatory powers must be exercised in order to stop bad people from doing harm to the rest of us, but when nanny-state know-it-alls in Washington DC decide to start telling the rest of us how much water we can use to flush our toilets or what sort of bulbs we can screw into our light fixtures, they’ve engaged in the sort of conduct that our founding fathers would have taken up arms to oppose.

I guess it is easy to have a clear conscience if you have no conscience

What else do we expect from a political hack like Donna Brazile

Donna Brazile says she has no regrets about her interactions with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign while working as a CNN contributor.

CNN last week cut ties with Brazile, who is currently the interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), amid reports she tipped off Clinton’s team about debate question

“My conscience, as an activist, as a strategist, my conscience is very clear,” she told host Joe Madison on his Sirius XM broadcast Monday. “When I said what I said, I said it, and I’m not going back on it.”

It is easy for her, the truth means nothing to the Left

Why yes, the Clinton campaign is sleazy

Leaked emails released by WikiLeaks show how depraved Team Clinton is

Via Fox News

The Hillary Clinton campaign came under fire from Erica Garner on Thursday, the daughter of Eric Garner who was killed by a police officer in New York City, after the latest batch of emails released by WikiLeaks revealed how the Democratic presidential nominee talked about her father’s death.

In a series of tweets, Garner expressed anger at the information that poured out from the email release.

“I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use my dad?” she said. “These people will co opt anything to push their agenda. Police violence is not the same as gun violence.

Garner also tweeted out links to hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that show staffers trying to figure out how to word an editorial on gun violence that would later run in the New York Daily News.

The emails reveal how Team Corruption was trying to use Eric Garner’s death to push for gun control. They prove how little his actual death means to hacks like Podesta and the rest of Hillary’s cabal. The only thing that matters is whether or not these deplorables can use his death to push their agenda
