Gowdy: Democrats Never Cared About Oversight During Obama Era

"... for eight years, they didn’t lift a finger ..."

As Congressional Democrats use former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation as a chance to demand more oversight and investigations into the doings of the White House, Rep. Trey Gowdy , R-S.C., noted Tuesday that their zeal has vastly changed now that the party holding the White House has also changed.

Gowdy, who chaired the House Select Committee on Benghazi, told Martha MacCallum of Fox News that his “colleagues have amnesia.”

“I will say this,” he said. “They are very well rested because for eight years, they didn’t lift a finger to do oversight.”

Democrats on Tuesday demanded select committees and special investigations related to Flynn’s connections to Russia and what kinds of information he may have given Russia before his Monday night resignation.

“All of that energy you saw today at their press conference, that is because they went on an eight-year long vacation from doing oversight over the executive branch,” Gowdy said.

While agreeing there were unanswered questions, Gowdy made it clear there is a right way and a wrong way to pursue an investigation.

“I am all for the committees of jurisdiction, looking into it. I am also for looking into how classified information can make its way into the public domain,” he said.

“That is not a Republican issue or a Democrat issue. It’s a legal issue,” he added.

The issue of leaks was noted by commentator Andrew Mark Miller on Young Conservatives.

“The question no one seems to be concerned about is how in the world did this information about Flynn’s phone calls get leaked to the public? Was it the Obama machine? Was it someone on the Trump team? That’s far more important than this hysterical conspiracy theory the liberals are pushing about Trump and Russia,” he wrote.

Although Democrats are claiming not enough attention has been paid to connections to Russia among President Donald Trump’s advisers and Russian influence on the elections, Gowdy said that’s not the case.

“The Democrats may be new to this investigation. But the Republicans in the House, as it relates to Russia and their attempts to interfere in our elections, we’re not new to it,” he said on the Fox News show America’s Newsroom.

Gowdy said Democrats are more focused on “politics … than actually finding out what happened.”

“We know they were messing around with it. We don’t think they had any impact on the outcome, but obviously we’re not going to ignore something like that,” he said.

Asked whether there was evidence Russia impacted the election, Gowdy hedged.

“I don’t think anyone knows. I’ve seen no evidence of it,” he said.

Refugee Complains:
‘Too Many Laws’ In Western World

 During a recent interview with local media in Australia, a Sudanese refugee and mother of six suggested that the Australian government deserves the blame for her eldest son’s propensity for crime.

According to Nine News, Asha Awya’s eldest son is an unemployed gang member who has spent time in prison. Instead of pinning the blame for her son’s actions on him, however, Awya feels the Australian government deserves it for passing “too many laws.”

She said so during an appearance last week on the Australian program “A Current Affair,” where she also appeared to slam actual Australians for allegedly not making it easy for refugees to assimilate.

“They (her kids) came from a very traumatized environment, and coming to Australia, trying to fit in with the religion and the friends around them at school, is very challenging,” she said. “We have all these laws, so it’s just very confusing, and I feel sorry for the kids because they don’t know how to deal with this.”

But that’s not all. Awya also complained that the government provides her with too little money.

“The Centrelink money is not enough,” she said, referencing a welfare program operated by the Australian government’s Department of Human Services.

“Sometimes I cut some of their entertainment,” she added, saying in effect that she sometimes stops handing out allowances so as to reduce her costs.

And this, she believes, only serves to incentivize her son’s desire to commit crime.

“If mum always not giving me money, there’s no pocket money, then maybe I have to find a way of stealing and get my own money,” she said, articulating what she believes goes through her son’s mind.

So even though the Australian government graciously (and perhaps naively) allowed this Sundanese woman to migrate to the country, she basically resents this same government because it refuses to lavishly provide for her and her family’s every single need, including their desire for entertainment.

Behold the perfect example of a spoiled-rotten, ungrateful refugees, ladies and gentlemen.

You know, the media often accuse those who criticize their respective governments for allowing refugees to flood their neighborhoods of harboring racist views. If only it were that simple.

Many Westerners, including your truly — a citizen whose family immigrated to the West from India over three decades ago — take issue with the behavior of refugees.

Besides making nary an effort to assimilate, many refugees wind up on welfare, eschewing hard work and effort for a life of government subsistence and oftentimes a life of crime as well.

Now, consider what Awya told “A Current Affair” and answer me this: Is it really “racist” that Westerners such as yours truly prefer that migrants such as her remain in their own country instead of being allowed to migrate to ours?

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about this Sudanese refugee’s disgusting lack of gratitude.

What do you think about this migrant trying to blame her son’s behavior on the Australian government? Scroll down to comment below!
