EVEN MAXINE WATERS ADMITS THERE IS NO THERE, THERE …
There has been no one more vile and hateful for the Democrats in going after President Donald Trump than Maxine Waters. However, during a podcast with WAPO writer Jonathan Capehart even she had to admit when asked whether she had seen any evidence, either through the intelligence briefings, anything to back up any of the accusations that she has made regarding Russian-Trump collusion … Water’s answer was no. But of course since when did Democrats need evidence or facts to get in the way of their talking points?
That is why it is astonishing that the liberal MSM Washington Post opinion writer Jonathan Capehart left that significant admission made during his own podcast off his May 9 column about it. Sarcasm intended.
JONATHAN CAPEHART: I’ve got to ask you, because you leveled a whole lot of accusations out there about collusions and hacking and all of that. Have you seen anything, either through the intelligence briefings, anything to back up any of the accusations that you’ve made?
MAXINE WATERS: First of all, don’t forget that all of our intelligence agencies say, yes, they have the documentation that they did the hacking on the DNC and on some of us.
CAPEHART: But the collusion, though?
WATERS: No, we have not. That’s why investigations are so important, to drill down and to connect those dots and to get the facts. What we have is a lot of smoke that causes us to want to know more about what has happened. Why is it there are so many people around him are connected to oil? Why is it that Michael Flynn, who evidently has a great relationship with Putin, who has received payments for so-called speeches and who’s spent a lot of time in Russia and was accused of talking about sanctions, he lied about it and he got caught?
Hypocrite Democrat Senate Minority Schumer to President Trump: Comey Firing a ‘Big Mistake’ … Isn’t This the Same Guy Who Said I Have No Confidence in Comey?
REALLY CHUCKY, IT WASN’T TOO LONG AGO YOU WERE CALLING FOR COMEY’S HEAD …
It would appear that Chuck Schumer was for the firing of FBI director James Comey before he was against it. Senate Minority leader took the podium with with moral condemnation of Comey. Schumer told Trump that it was a big mistake to fire Comey. REALLY? Who does not think that if Hillary won the 2016 presidency, God forbid, that she would have not fired him. Schumer said that the “first question” for the Trump administration is why the president decided to fire Comey now. The FBI is investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 White House race, as well as any connections between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.
But this is not what the two face, hypocritical Schumer was saying previously about James Comey. The duplicity of Schumer reeks of nothing more than partisan politics.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) says he told President Trump that his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey was a “big mistake.
“Earlier this afternoon President Trump called me and informed me he was firing Director Comey,” Schumer told reporters on Tuesday. “I told the president, ‘Mr. President, with all due respect, you are making a big mistake.’ ”
He added that Trump didn’t “really respond” to his comment.
Trump wrote in a letter to Comey that the FBI has to restore “public trust and confidence.”
But wait, wasn’t it just last November 2016 when New York Sen. Chuck Schumer gave Comey a vote of no confidence and all but alluded to the fact that Comey would be fired once Hillary Clinton won? That is exactly what was said.
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer gave FBI Director James Comey a no-confidence vote in response to Comey’s revelation that the agency has reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
“I do not have confidence in him any longer,” the likely incoming leader of the Senate Democrats, told Bloomberg.
That statement raises the possibility that Democrats will try to oust Comey after the presidential election. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi hinted at the prospect Wednesday. “Maybe he’s not in the right job,” the California Democrat told CNN. “I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way.”
Comey rocked the presidential campaign when he sent a letter to lawmakers on Friday revealing that investigators had found a new batch of emails “pertinent” to the Clinton probe while conducting “an unrelated investigation.” The letter was at odds with the standard procedure of the FBI not to confirm or deny ongoing investigations, but Comey thought it was necessary because he testified before Congress that the Clinton probe was finished.
HOUSE FINALLY REPEALS OBAMACARE …
After campaigning on the issue for nearly seven years, House Republicans have finally passed a health care bill to repeal and replace the failed disaster known as Obamacare. The legislation passed 217 to 213 with no Democrats joining Republicans to repeal the failed Obamacare law. There were 20 Republicans voted no on the legislation. President Donald Trump praised House Speaker Paul Ryan and said he’s confident in Senate passage and predicted an “unbelievable victory.” “Trump went on to say, “As far as I’m concerned, your premiums are going to come down.”
Make no mistake about it America, Obamacare was a lie fed to you by Barack Obama and Democrats. Do I think this legislation is perfect, not a chance, but Obamacare was a failing disaster.
House Republicans on Thursday narrowly approved their sweeping health care bill aimed at fulfilling a campaign promise to upend ObamaCare, after resuscitating legislation that had flatlined on the floor not six weeks earlier.
The revised American Health Care Act passed on a 217-213 vote.
“We’re going to get this finished,” President Trump declared in a celebratory Rose Garden event, surrounded by Republican congressional allies shortly after the vote. He vowed premiums and deductibles will be “coming down” and the Affordable Care Act is “essentially dead.”
The passage marked Republicans’ biggest step yet toward replacing the Obama administration’s signature domestic policy law. The bill heads next to the Senate, however, where it faces an uncertain fate.
I can only hope that this is the beginning of really providing affordable and fair insurance coverage to Americans who want insurance. not forced to purchase government sponsored and unaffordable insurance. My person opinion having been in the healthcare field for nearly 30 years is that the fix should have been more market driven, not a spoon fed insurance plan. Individuals are going to have to start taking responsibility for their lives and stop depending on government, that goes for Republicans too.

Democrats were unable to stop the GOP vote aimed at President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement. But after the final vote was cast, they chanted “nah nah nah nah hey hey hey goodbye” to their Republican colleagues, with a few members waving, as they believe the vote will lead to many GOP lawmakers losing their seats in the November 2018 midterms.
Thursday marks a political milestone — one that has painfully eluded Trump and House leaders for months. The controversial health care bill delivered Trump the biggest political defeat of his short presidency in March, when the legislation had to be yanked from the House floor because it simply didn’t have enough support.
Under pressure from an antsy Trump looking to score a big political victory, Republican leaders tried again last week, hoping to to get to 216 votes ahead of the President’s symbolically important 100-day mark in office. That effort, too, failed.
Hillary Clinton Takes Responsibility for Presidential Election Loss Then Blames FBI Director Comey, Russians & Wikileaks … If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president’
HILLARY, JUST GO AWAY … SHE BLAMES EVERYONE BUT HERSELF AND CONTINUES TO WHINE ABOUT LOSING …
Just when you think or hoped you had seen the last of her, Hilary Clinton comes back. At a Women for Women International event in New York, Clinton stated that she took full responsibility for losing the 2016 presidential election to Donald J. Trump, then went on to blame everyone else but herself for the loss. Clinton blamed FBI Director James Comey, Wikileaks, Russian interference and misogyny. Hillary continues with the right wing and now the Comey, Russian and Wikileaks conspiracy. After supposedly taking responsibility for the loss Hillary Clinton said, “If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president.” I shudder to think if that ever did happen.
What I find comical is that the most well funded campaign in history, one where the MSM was in the tank for Democrats that Hillary is still whining that how dare the people found out the truth about her and decided to not vote for her. The truth of the matter is that this was a “change” election and Hillary Clinton represents the establishment more than any candidate in modern times. She was a flawed candidate who could not tell the truth. Hillary’s scandals with private email servers and the Clinton Foundation were far too much for most Americans to stomach. And mostly, Hillary lost because she had no message and could not connect with the American people. There is a reason why the “Blue” wall of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin crumbled. Hillary Clinton and Democrats have become a party of NYC and LA, of the Northeast and the West Coast. They have forgot about that vast space of states and people in-between long ago and paid for it dearly in 2016.
Hillary Clinton delivered her most forceful critique of President Donald Trump’s 2016 victory on Tuesday, taking personal responsibility for her failed campaign but also pointed to the timing of a letter from FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference as factors.
“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women International event in New York.
“I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had,” Clinton said, before adding that she was “on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off.”
Clinton, as she has done in the past, also hung part of her 2016 loss on misogyny.
“Yes, I do think it played a role. I think other things did as well,” Clinton said.
But repeatedly, Clinton came back to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s role in the 2016 election and how he was able to tilt the scale in favor of Trump and against her.
Clinton, aides say, sees her role during the Trump years as a political activist who speaks out when issue she cares about are threatened. And on Tuesday, it was clear Clinton was ready to settle into that role.
“I am now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance,” Clinton said, drawing cheers from the crowd that included former aides, donors and celebrities like actress Meryl Streep.
Every time I hear this woman speak, I thank my lucky stars that the 2016 election went the way it did and remind myself just how important it is that President Trump won. Interesting enough, so now Hillary is an activist citizen and part of the resistance, yet during her concession speech to then President-elect Donald Trump she said, “I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country.” LIAR!!!
AMAZING WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PRESIDENT ACTUALLY UPHOLDS THE EXISTING LAWS ON IMMIGRATION …
Despite some judicial and Congressional setbacks with regards to President Donald Trump’s immigration changes, isn’t it quite remarkable how some of his stratrgies have worked when it comes to illegal immigration by just enforcing the laws that are already on the books. I to would appear that illegals are fearful that Trump will actually enforce U.S. Immigration law, defend the border and deport those that do not belong legally in America. What a novel concept.
In many ways, President Trump’s attempts to implement his hard-line immigration policies have not gone very well in his first three months. His travel ban aimed at some Muslim-majority countries has been blocked by the courts, his U.S.-Mexico border wall has gone nowhere in Congress, and he has retreated, at least for now, on his vow to target illegal immigrants brought here as children.
But one strategy that seems to be working well is fear. The number of migrants, legal and illegal, crossing into the United States has dropped markedly since Trump took office, while recent declines in the number of deportations have been reversed.
Many experts on both sides of the immigration debate attribute at least part of this shift to the use of sharp, unwelcoming rhetoric by Trump and his aides, as well as the administration’s showy use of enforcement raids and public spotlighting of crimes committed by immigrants. The tactics were aimed at sending a political message to those in the country illegally or those thinking about trying to come.
“The world is getting the message,” Trump said last week during a speech at the National Rifle Association leadership forum in Atlanta. “They know our border is no longer open to illegal immigration, and if they try to break in you’ll be caught and you’ll be returned to your home. You’re not staying any longer. If you keep coming back illegally after deportation, you’ll be arrested and prosecuted and put behind bars. Otherwise it will never end.”
