THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE LEFT, SO I AM GUESSING DEMOCRATS WILL BE ASKING SCHUMER TO RESIGN?
With all the insanity from the LEFT that there is a connection between Trump and the Russians, because the LEFT just cannot accept losing an election, what about this? From the Gateway Pundit comes this inconvenient flashback for Democrats where in 2003, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) met not only with the Russians, but Vladimir Putin, himself, in New York City.
More from NTK on this Schumer meeting with the Russians. Not Trump, but Chucky Schumer. So where are the calls for Schumer to resign as Democrat Senate Minority leader? Come on folks, this man has met with Putin. Oh the double standard and hypocrisy.
Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has talked quite tough on Russia as of late. In December, he said Trump’s team is “far too close to Russia,” and added “[b]oth parties ought to be united in standing up to Russian interference.”
Schumer hasn’t always been so tough on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In 2003, Schumer welcomed Putin to New York City as Russian oil company Lukoil opened a gas station in Manhattan.
The AP photo shows Putin and Schumer smiling, with coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The caption reads:
Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil, Friday.
Schumer also said that day:
“When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politic
Even with the Liberal MSM Giving President Trump KUDOS For Speech, Democrat Sen. Minority Leader Schumer Looks Small in His Criticism of Trump (VIDEO)
AS KENNY ROGERS SANG IN THE GAMBLER, SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA KNOW WHEN TO HOLD ‘EM, KNOW WHEN TO FOLD ‘EM,. KNOW WHEN TO WALK AWAY AND KNOW WHEN TO RUN … SCHUMER I WOULD SUGGEST THE LATTER.
Following President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress and the overwhelming approval and KUDOS from the MSM, liberal and conservative alike, that Donald Trump did amazingly well, Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer came across as petty and small in his post speech criticism. My prediction, if Democrats continue to pander to their insane 20% of their base and do nothing but obstruct what the American people are asking for and continue to just act the fool, they will be destroyed in the 2018 midterm elections beyond repair.
At some point you have to tip your hat and move on. This insanoid obstruction to everything Trump has got to stop. Donald Trump asked all to work together for the American people and all Democrats responded with was obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. This will not play well with middle of the road individuals and Independents.
SESSIONS CONFIRMED …
As reported at the Hill, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be the next attorney general. The vote was 52-47, with only one Democrat voting for Sessions, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). Many Democrats seem to think that Sessions will not act independently of President Trump; however, they had no issue when former AG’s Eric Holder and Lorretta Lynch marched in lockstep with Barack Obama. With Sessions now the new AG, his senate seat needs to be filled and according to the Politico, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley will name Luther Strange, Alabama’s attorney general, on Thursday morning to replace him in the Senate.
The Senate voted Wednesday night to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as attorney general, capping a vicious debate that left Democrats and Republicans alike seething at times.
No Republicans went against Sessions in the 52-47 vote. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) was the only Democrat to back Sessions.
While Republicans broke out into applause after the vote closed, Democrats largely stood silently. A handful of Democratic senators — including Manchin, Sen. Joe Donnelly (W.Va.) and Robert Menendez (N.J.) — went over and shook Sessions’s hand after the vote. Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), who didn’t support Sessions, hugged him on the Senate floor.
The fight over Sessions escalated this week, when Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) read a letter that Coretta Scott King had written in 1986 that accused Sessions, a U.S. attorney at the time, of using the power of his office to prevent blacks from voting.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) Shut Down After Vile Speech Against Sessions Broke Senate Rules (VIDEO)
IF YOU DON’T WANT THE FOLLOW THE RULES … SIT DOWN!!!
Pocahontas, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was shut down during her vitriolic speech against President Donald Trump nominee for attorney General, Sen. Jeff Sessions. It appears that under Senate rule 19, No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator. That is exactly what Warren was accused of doing. Warren knows the rules of the Senate and as most on the LEFT believe, that they don’t apply to them. After a contentious back and forth conversation between Warren and the Senate chair, which prompted the chair to finally say … “The senator will take her seat.” BAM!!!! The headlines from the liberal media regarding this case show more pure bias. When the liberal MSM does not like the law, they call them arcane.
The move means the progressive senator won’t be allowed to speak from the floor until after the Senate wraps up its debate on Sessions’s nomination, expected to occur on Wednesday evening.
The drama on the Senate floor comes after McConnell interrupted Warren’s speech accusing her of breaking the upper chamber’s guidelines.
“The senator has impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama,” McConnell said from the Senate floor. “I call the senator to order under the provisions of Rule 19.”
Under the Senate’s “Rule 19,” senators are not allowed to “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”
Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate and has been sworn in as the Director of the CIA. Pompeo is the third person appointed by President Donald Trump to be confirmed to his cabinet position, as Senate Democrats and Chuck Schumer play petty party politics in delaying Trump’s choices. The vote was 66-32. Pompeo was sworn in Monday evening by Vice President Pence.
The Senate on Monday confirmed Rep. Mike Pompeo to be director of the CIA, following a spirited debate in which Democrats expressed concern about his stances on domestic surveillance, data collection and torture.
The vote was 66 to 32, with a majority of Democrats voting no — as well as Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.
Pompeo was subsequently sworn in.
“The president and I are confident in your abilities and know you will rise to the challenge to lead the Central Intelligence Agency,” Vice President Mike Pence said at the swearing-in.
