Freshman Dems to meet with Obama next week

The Hill

Freshman Democrats in the lower chamber are expected to meet with former President Obama next week at a reception organized by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Democratic aide confirmed Thursday.

The event — which is slated to take place at former UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Esther Coopersmith’s home in Kalorama — is limited to just members, several of whom served in the 44th president’s administration, according to an invitation seen by The Hill.

The invitation states that the reception is being held to “celebrate the freshman class of the 116th Congress.”

Politico first reported the news.

Obama played a visible role in helping Democrats take back control of the lower chamber, having provided key endorsements, hit the campaign trail and raised funds in the party’s efforts to flip seats.

The 116th Congress currently has 59 Democratic freshman members.

REPORT: Hillary Clinton Would Be In Jail Today If Obama DOJ Hadn’t Ordered Stand Down On Investigations

Remember that famous presidential debate line by then-candidate Donald Trump when he told Hillary Clinton if he had been in charge during the investigation into her private email server (among other things) that she’d “be in jail”? Well, a breaking report out this week provides some serious substance to the presidential debate boast.

If not for the (improper) protection/intervention of the Obama DOJ, Hillary Clinton would very likely be in jail by now.

Lisa Page admitted Obama DOJ ordered stand-down on Clinton email prosecution, GOP rep says

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted under questioning from Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe last summer that “the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information,” the congressman alleged in a social media post late Tuesday, citing a newly unearthed transcript of Page’s closed-door testimony.

Page and since-fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who were romantically involved, exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, and Republicans have long accused the bureau of political bias. But Page’s testimony was perhaps the most salient evidence yet that the Justice Department improperly interfered with the FBI’s supposedly independent conclusions on Clinton’s criminal culpability, Ratcliffe alleged.

…Responding to the transcript revelations, Trump on Wednesday tweeted: “The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine. Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”

Federal law states that “gross negligence” in handling the nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines, and there is no requirement that defendants act intentionally or recklessly.

Originally Comey accused the former secretary of state of being “grossly negligent” in handling classified information in a draft dated May 2, 2016, but that was modified to claim that Clinton had merely been “extremely careless” in a draft dated June 10, 2016.

So, in summary, the Deep State shielded Hillary Clinton from justice while orchestrating a still-ongoing hoax of investigations against President Trump.

That isn’t democracy. That’s centralized, authorititive, and overtly abusive power that continues to attempt a coup of a duly elected President of the United States.

It’s going to be very interesting to see how the Trump administration responds as well as his tens of millions of supporters.

Democrats: A plague on the nation

American Thinker

By Patricia McCarthy

How as Americans do we explain the intransigence of the left when it comes to national security?  ‘Tis a mystery.  These people, these Democrats in Congress, are among the most privileged persons on the planet.  They have enjoyed, more than most, the blessings bequeathed by the Founders, the authors of the Constitution.  Yet they are determined, like Obama, to transform us into something this nation was never meant to be: a land without borders.  While all of them are on record supporting a border wall in the past, now that Donald Trump is president, they all oppose it with every fiber of their being.  They know that it will work, and they cannot abide Trump having a win.  These people – Schumer, Pelosi, Gutiérrez, etc. – are truly venal.  Governor Brown has effectively destroyed California, now benighted by rampant homelessness and the crime that accompanies a population of illiterate, drug-addicted, gang-affiliated, criminally inclined persons adrift on our streets.  And now another young officer has been killed by an illegal alien thanks to the left’s obsession with protecting the throngs of migrants crossing the border into the U.S.

It should be obvious to every American by now that our progressive left does not have the best interest of Americans at heart.  Quite the opposite.  They loathe those of us who put Trump in the White House and are determined to punish us.  They intend to raise our taxes to pay for the $100B illegal aliens cost us every year.  They need open borders to import future voters; millions of illegals voted in the 2018 election thanks to motor voter bills and states’ refusal to require voter ID.  The Democrats know they cannot win without cheating.  They cheated in 2016 and are still stunned that their carefully calculated strategy did not work – thus, the cover-up, AKA the Mueller investigation, of their many crimes committed over the Obama years, many at the direction of Hillary Clinton with Obama’s knowledge and approval.  Our once most revered institutions, the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA, have been thoroughly corrupted.  Mueller, a willing participant in that corruption, is up to his eyeballs in the cover-up.

Will any of these people at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA, ever be held accountable?  To date, they have not been.  The power they have within the Deep State is beyond formidable; it is seemingly absolute.

It appears that America has become a sort of medieval oligarchy.  Trump, as the outsider he is, is a grave threat to all of those who believed they were in control in perpetuity.  They are ready and willing to do anything, no matter how illegal or immoral, to depose him, to expel him from office.

The Democrats in office today, and those about to take the majority in the House, are anti-Americans.  Of that you can be sure.  They care about keeping our borders open to all comers more than they care about keeping Americans safe.  They all supported a border wall when Clinton and Obama were in office.  Now they hate the president more than they love the country.  Of this there can be no doubt.

Democrats, Media Were Silent When Obama Fired Mattis

Defense Secretaries come and go. Obama had four of them in 8 years who had some unkind things to say about his leadership or lack of it. There was no talk of chaos or of the only adult in the room leaving. Suddenly the media is in meltdown after “Mad Dog” Mattis announced his departure from the Cabinet after President Trump announced our departure from Syria:

Foreign Policy Pentagon reporter Lara Seligman wrote the press corp is contemplating suicide over Mattis’ resignation, “I think I speak for all national security reporters tonight when I say I’m about ready to jump off a cliff. But at least I already wrote the “who will replace Mattis” story two months (only two months?????) ago @ForeignPolicy

Democrats who won’t defend our southern border and who slept as Obama drew red lines in the sand with vanishing ink worry about an ISIS Obama created by a precipitous withdrawal from Iraq regaining strength and reforming in Syria and Iraq. The general Obama fired is suddenly a man of principle whose leadership was indispensable:

Who’s Behind the Drug Crisis?

America’s Survival

by

Under the “Choom Gang” President Obama, illegal and legal drug use has accelerated. The role of billionaire hedge fund operator George Soros in the crisis that is taking tens of thousands of lives a year is examined by drug policy expert David Evans. Soros is behind the marijuana movement and even heroin injection centers, such as those proposed in Seattle. Evans looks at how the drug companies pushing opioids benefited from a law passed by Congress and signed by Obama and sparked an opioid epidemic.

Remember This Pic? Well Trump Just Had His Defining “Umbrella Moment”

 

Conservative Tribune

… [F]or Barack Obama, one of the moments that crystallized why he frustrated so many Americans came not from anything he did, but rather what he forced a Marine to do for him back in 2013.

Back then, Obama was holding a joint press conference in the White House Rose Garden with Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan when it started to rain.

Instead of holding an umbrella for himself, he decided to have a U.S. Marine hold it for him — something that, as the U.K. Telegraph points out, isn’t necessarily allowed by the Marine Corps regulations.

The “umbrella moment” became a telling faux pas for many Obama doubters, one that cemented their opinion of a man addicted to the trappings of power and utterly lacking in respect for the Armed Forces.

President Trump had his “umbrella moment” on Wednesday as he left the White House to board Marine One. You may notice a bit of a difference in how the two men handled it.

[Snip]

What a difference an election makes.
