Regrettably, in spite of his best intentions, there is only so much that President Trump can do when it comes to draining the Potomac swamp. Fortunately, a few of the swamp critters have already packed their bags. I specifically have rino-Jeff Flake and Paul Ryan in mind.
I’ll give House Speaker Ryan credit for helping to get the tax reform bill passed, but he is far too easy-going for the job he has. A person in a leadership role has to know how to crack a whip. Break with the President’s agenda and at the very least you’re supposed to lose committee chairmanships and corner offices.
While it’s true that Democrats rarely think for themselves, I guarantee that if any of them gave an inch when it came to tax cuts, Trump’s wall or sanctuary cities and states, they’d be quickly taken out to the woodshed by Chuck clown-Schumer or Nancy Pulosi and introduced to the business end of a hickory stick.
As for rino-Jeff Flake, I suspect the only reason he chose to run as a Republican in the first place was that he looked around and decided that if rino-John McCain was Arizona’s idea of a Republican, that must be what he was, too.
⦿ We are, unfortunately, on the verge of losing a first-rate congressman. It is why I wrote back to the White House after they returned the five-dollar check I wanted President Trump to use as seed money to get his big, beautiful wall built through public subscription.
Because I assumed I was more likely to reach his Special Assistant than I was to reach Donald Trump directly, I wrote: “Dear Ms. Thompson: I appreciate the response from you and the President to my contribution and my suggestion that it be used to kick off the campaign to get the wall built.
“Having failed in that attempt, I am disappointed, but not deflated. I have a second suggestion to make. I believe President Trump would be well-advised to make Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal permanent by replacing him with Trey Gowdy.
“Mr. Gowdy, who has already announced he will be departing from the House at the end of his current term, is simply too intelligent, competent and dedicated to the Constitution, to allow his unique talents to be squandered in the private sector.
“He would be the perfect antidote to Jeff Sessions, who dithers around like an old woman and who opened the door to Robert Mueller’s witch hunt by shirking his responsibilities. Sincerely, Burt Prelutsky”
⦿ Because he was positive that he smelled marijuana after making a traffic stop, a New Jersey state trooper strip-searched the male driver. The search, caught on the officer’s dashcam as well as his body camera, showed Trooper Joseph Drew putting his hands into the man’s underpants, groping the guy’s buttocks and his genitalia for several minutes, while a parade of gawkers drove past on the highway.
As it turned out, no drugs were found in the man’s car or in any of his potential hiding places. The cop wound up citing the poor guy for tailgating, of all things.
A lawsuit is in the works.
In related news, when asked what his current plans are now that his acting career has gone off the tracks thanks to his sexcapades with underage males, Kevin Spacey is rumored to have said he was thinking of spending the next few months tailgating on the New Jersey turnpike.
⦿ One of the constant traits of liberals is their lack of introspection. They never pause to ask themselves or each other whether it’s even possible that those who disagree with them just might be right when it comes to closing the border and ending chain migration.
As for guns, it constantly amazes me that liberals fail to recognize and acknowledge that if the feds disarm decent, law-abiding citizens, it will inevitably increase the chance that they and their friends will be victimized by bad people with guns.
The fact that they – especially those we’re constantly told will be the nation’s future leaders -- march in lockstep, parrot left-wing slogans and never question any statement, no matter how inane, expressed by commie-Bernie Sanders, Chris Matthews, mad-Maxine Waters, Jimmy Kimmel or Elizabeth dinky-Warren, bodes badly for America.
It’s because the boobs never really question any of their pre-digested talking points that they become so angry, tongue-tied and frustrated, when they’re challenged by their intellectual superiors. All they can do is lash out and call their opponents racists, fascists, sexists, bullies, Nazis, homophobes and Islamophobes.
I believe it was Ronald Reagan who first observed how little liberals actually know, and how much that they think they know is wrong.
GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic BagRepublican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.
The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.
UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.
Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.
Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…
…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.
Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500
A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.
Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.
FOX News reported:
A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.
Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.
“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”
Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.
On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”
The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
