Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) Says In Some Parts of the Country, Nancy Pelosi Is More Toxic Than Donald Trump (VIDEO)
WHEN YOU ARE RIGHT, YOU ARE RIGHT, DEMOCRATS ARE MORE TOXIC THAN TRUMP …
Following the disastrous special election in Georgia this past week, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) openly criticized Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and said it was time his party did some soul-searching to figure out what the problem was. One problem is Nancy Pelosi and that in many areas of the country, she is more toxic than President Donald Trump. Ryan went on to say that Pelosi has become a focal point for the GOP to run against.
“The brand is just bad,” Ryan said. “I don’t think people in the beltway are realizing just how toxic the Democratic Party brand is in so many parts of the country.”
Lemon asked Ryan if he believed Pelosi was more toxic than Donald Trump.
“The honest answer is in some areas of the country — yes, she is,” Ryan said. ” I think that in certain areas, like in some of these special election districts, it doesn’t benefit our candidates to be tied to her. “
However, I have to disagree with Rep. Ryan’s overall premise. He thinks that Nancy Pelosi is the over-reaching problem. This is not true. Pelosi is a symptom of the problem. not the actual issue. The real issue is what the Democrat party has become. The Democrat party is far-LEFT, nearly half wanted a socialist like Bernie Sanders, not a Democrat, a self-proclaimed socialist to be their candidate. Had it not been for a rigged Democrat primary with “super delegates” pushing Hillary over the finish line, Sanders could have won. This is how far left the party has lurched. This is the problem with the party, they are toxic to the very blue collar workers that make up the electorate in once blue states like West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin. The Democrats are no longer the party of the working class. They have not been for many years. The Democrat party has become the party of the West coast/East coast elites, the party of Hollywood, the party of LGBTQ, the party of Black Lives Matters. The Democrat party is no longer the party of JFK or even Bill Clinton. Not even close.
I WOULD SAY THIS IS SHOCKING BUT IT HAS BECOME THE NORM FROM THE VILE AND HATEFUL LEFT …
Actor Johnny Depp referenced assassinating Donald Trump during an appearance at Glastonbury, England during Cineramageddon. Depp said, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” REALLY? And we wonder why lunatics have attempted to assassinate Republican law makers why practicing baseball? REALLY? Maybe American law enforcement and the Secret Service need to pay Mr. Depp a visit when he returns home. This over the top crap of threats to Trump and those on the Right from the lunatic LEFT have got to end. Some one needs to be made an example of and prosecuted. This is not free speech and to hide behind the cowardice that it is a joke, is a joke.
“I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go,” Depp said, to cheers from the crowd.
“It is just a question – I’m not insinuating anything. By the way, this is going to be in the press. It will be horrible. I like that you are all a part of it.
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked in reference to the death of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865.
“I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time,” he added.
Trey Gowdy Destroys former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson … “No Evidence Of Trump Collusion With Russia” (VIDEO)
AMAZING, SIMPLY AMAZING … OBAMA ADMINISTRATION KNEW ABOUT RUSSIAN HACKING AND DID NOTHING.
Who was covering up the Russian hacking and maybe the focus should be on the administration that was in charge at the time of the Russian hacking and what little they did about it.
The Obama administration feared that acknowledging Russian meddling in the 2016 election would reveal too much about intelligence gathering and be interpreted as “taking sides” in the race, the former secretary of homeland security said Wednesday.
“One of the candidates, as you recall, was predicting that the election was going to be ‘rigged’ in some way,” said Jeh Johnson, the former secretary, referring to President Trump’s unsubstantiated accusation before Election Day. “We were concerned that by making the statement we might, in and of itself, be challenging the integrity of the election process itself.”
Mr. Johnson’s testimony, before the House Intelligence Committee, provided a fresh insight into how the Obama administration tried to balance politically explosive information with the public’s need to know. That question also vexed federal law enforcement officials investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
RCP: Rep. Trey Gowdy Grills Jeh Johnson: “No Evidence Of Trump Collusion With Russia”
GOWDY: At the time you separated from service in January 2017, had you seen any evidence that Donald Trump or any member of his campaign colluded, conspired or coordinated with the Russians or anyone else to infiltrate or impact our voter infrastructure?
JOHNSON: Not beyond what has been out there open-source, and not beyond anything that I’m sure this committee has already seen and heard before, directly from the intelligence community. So anything I’d have on that is derivative of what the intelligence community has — and the law enforcement community.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said it is “a little ironic” that some Democrats are now complaining about the lack of help they got with the Democratic National Committee’s servers, which were compromised by Russia during the 2016 campaign season.
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testified before the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday, saying he was not pleased that the DNC did not turn over its compromised servers to the Department of Homeland Security for examination.
Host Martha McCallum asked Gowdy why he thinks Democrats might not want the DNC server examined.
Washington Free Beacon: Obama Admin’s DHS Chief Can’t Explain Why DNC Didn’t Give Hacked Servers to Law Enforcement.
“Wouldn’t that help you, number one, identify who the attacker was, and if memory serves me, this was early in the summer of 2016 when we learned of the DNC hack, so if they had turned the server over to either you or [former FBI] Director [James] Comey, maybe we would have known more and maybe there would have been more for you to report?” Gowdy asked. “So I guess what I’m asking you is, why would the victim of a crime not turn over a server to the intelligence community or to law enforcement?”
“I’m not going to argue with you, sir,” Johnson answered.
Johnson went on to say with a laugh that Gowdy’s question was “leading,” although earlier in the hearing Gowdy had told Johnson to tell him if any of his questions accidentally sounded as though they were doing just that.
Democrat Ossoff States Georgia Race Showed ‘We Could Fight’ … Actually It Showed You Could Lose After Spending A Boat Load of Money (VIDEO)
WOW, THESE PEOPLE LIVE IN THEIR OWN LITTLE BUBBLE …
It turns out that this was the most expensive participation trophy in House election history. To hear Ossoff talk in his concession speech one would not know that he lost. But lose he did. In essence Handel beat his Ossoff. The Democrat challenger stated to the crowd, that “we showed we could fight in places that no one thought we could.” Really? I actually thought Donald Trump showed that last November when he broke the Democrat Blue wall and won Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Then Ossoff then pandered to the crowd and said this small community in Georgia stood up, “woman in this community stood up.” Yawn. Just a footnote to this special election … the victor Karen Handel is the first GOP women to be sent to Congress from Georgia. Also, it was not the first opportunity in this country to make a statement regarding the trump presidency. Democrats are now 0-5 in special elections. Hardly the first.

SOME THING MUST BE DONE TO MAKE NORTH KOREA PAY FOR THIS MURDER …
As reported at ABC News, Otto Warmbier, the 22 year old American student who was imprisoned in North Korea for more than 17 months and was just returned home to Ohio last week, has died. Warmbier, a University of Virginia undergraduate student, returned to the U.S. in a comatose state after North Korea released him for medical reasons last Tuesday. It is obvious that Warmbier died from his treatment that he received at the hands of North Korea, not the so-called botulism claimed by North Korea. Otto Warmbier’s doctors at University of Cincinnati Medical Center said last week that he had extensive brain damage dating back longer than a year. The Warmbiers thanked those who assisted in their son’s care back home in Cincinnati, Ohio, and condemned the North Korean regime.
“It is our sad duty to report that our son, Otto Warmbier, has completed his journey home,” his family said in part in a statement. “Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20 p.m.”
Doctors from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center said last week that Warmbier, 22, was suffering from injuries related to cardiopulmonary arrest and was in a state of unresponsive wakefulness. Scans showed extensive loss in all regions of Warmbier’s brain, doctors said.
Warmbier, a University of Virginia student, was medically evacuated from North Korea and flown to Cincinnati late last Tuesday. He was then transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
On Monday, the family paid tribute to Warmbier in their emotional statement.
“It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost — future time that won’t be spent with a warm, engaging, brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds,” the family’s statement continues. “But we choose to focus on the time we were given to be with this remarkable person. You can tell from the outpouring of emotion from the communities that he touched — Wyoming, Ohio, and the University of Virginia to name just two — that the love for Otto went well beyond his immediate family.”
The statement also thanked “the wonderful professionals at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center who did everything they could for Otto.”
“When Otto returned to Cincinnati late on June 13th he was unable to speak, unable to see and unable to react to verbal commands. He looked very uncomfortable — almost anguished. Although we would never hear his voice again, within a day the countenance of his face changed — he was at peace. He was home and we believe he could sense that.”
Melania and I offer our deepest condolences to the family of Otto Warmbier on his untimely passing. There is nothing more tragic for a parent than to lose a child in the prime of life. Our thoughts and prayers are with Otto’s family and friends, and all who loved him.
Otto’s fate deepens my Administration’s determination to prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law or basic human decency. The United States once again condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim.
Really, this tour group is finally figuring this out now? The unlawful and ridiculous imprisonment of an American college student was not enough? The basic holding of a student as a hostage was not enough? It actually took the systematic torture and beating of an American college student resulting in his death to do it? UNREAL.
The travel company that took University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier to North Korea said Monday that it is wrangling with the 22-year-old’s death and will no longer take Americans to North Korea.
For years, Young Pioneer Tours has happily boasted: “We provide budget travel to destinations your mother would rather you stayed away from.” On Monday, after Warmbier’s family announced he’d died that afternoon at a Cincinnati hospital, the message that the China-based tour company sent via e-mail to USA TODAY wore a darker and more anguished tone.
