I hope you are sitting down because it appears that Senator Chuck Schumer (NY-D) has once again demonstrated his hypocrisy, demonstrating by actions and words that he will and continues to take positions, not out of any sort of principled conviction, but because he believes they will grant him political gain.
Schumer has been an outspoken and vocal critic of President Donald Trump, as he has hammered the president on alleged ties to Russia and the “election hacking” scandal. Never one to suffer fools, President Trump also routinely calls Schumer out publically via Twitter as he is prone to do.
In March 2017, President Trump called for “an immediate investigation” into Schumer due to HIS ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him a “hypocrite” due to a picture of Putin and Schumer surfaced from 2003 published in the Associated Press.

Schumer is currently responding to the recent political stunt pulled by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, with regard to the 12 indicted Russian intelligence operatives. Schumer demands that President Trump demand that President Putin “hand over” the 12 Russians in question.
.@realdonaldtrump, today my colleagues and I are officially calling on you to demand President Putin hand over the 12 indicted Russian intelligence operatives that interfered in the 2016 election. https://t.co/r8suBCKMxu

Yet there are significant questions regarding the indictment as investigative journalist Paul Sperry notes, “Another strange Russia indictment by Mueller: no arrests, no American co-conspirators,no seizure of servers or property, no raids & no sourcing–no informants or witnesses named,nothing attributed to intercepts. In fact,none of the findings is attributed–not even to an FBI agent”

He continued – “Did Mueller leave out the sourcing for his evidence in Russia “hacking” indictment because its merely CrowdStrike, the Democrat cybersecurity shop? Did CrowdStrike supplement the forensics in the absence of the DNC server FBI and Mueller never seized so Quantico could examine it?”

Schumer has also launched a campaign to block the nomination of President Trump’s most recent Supreme Court appointment Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanagh has been chosen to take the place of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Schumer tweeted his opposition just after the announcement of Kavanaugh’s appointment had been made, stating – “I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same. The stakes are simply too high for anything less.”

Yet during the prior administration, Schumer spoke out against what he termed as “obstructionist behavior” of Republican senators’ plans to filibuster former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court pick to replaced deceased Justice Antonin Scalia.
Speaking to ABC’s This Week, Schumer stated virtually the opposite of what he is stating regarding the confirmation of Kavanaugh. Schumer stated – “Well, the job, first and foremost, is for the president to nominate and for the Senate to hold hearings and go through the process. You know, the Constitution, Ted Cruz holds the Constitution, you know, when he walks through the halls of Congress. Let him show me the clause that says president’s only president for three years…Here, he doesn’t even know who the president’s going to propose and he said, no, we’re not having hearings; we’re not going to go forward to lead the Supreme Court vacant at 300 days in a divided time…This kind of obstructionism isn’t going to last. And you know, we Democrats didn’t do this. When in the — we nominated — we voted 97-0 for Justice Kennedy in the last year of Reagan’s term.”
For the record, Schumer’s last statement is highly misleading in that the only reason Kennedy was nominated in the last year of Reagan’s term was that Senate Democrats blocked and voted down his first two choices the year prior.
Schumer also took a similar stance to his current stance on Kavanaugh nine years ago. At that time, he went out of his way to make sure the George W. Bush administration knew of his plans to filibuster any Supreme Court nominee they put forth of the next two years because the ideologies of the prior nominees did not align with his own.
In a speech given on July 27, 2007, Schumer stated – “We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances. They must prove by actions, not words that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not.”
Senator Chuck Schumer calls flight attendant who told him to turn off cell phone ‘bitch’ https://t.co/n5tg6rdbJ0 Where is the outrage? Calling a women doing her job a Bitch! Where is all the Feminist outrage? You all drag stuff up from 20 years ago, this was only 9

Apparently, Schumer objected to a 300-day delay in appointing a Justice, was perfectly fine filibustering a Supreme Court nominee for 543 days?
Yet, not only is Schumer a hypocrite, he also believes the rules simply do not apply to him. Schumer was flying with his political protégé, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on a US Airways flight from LaGuardia Airport to Washington.
Both Schumer and Gillibrand were talking on their cellphones while the plane was boarding and continued to do even after the plane’s captain made the announcement for passengers to turn them off. The two Senators simply ignored the announcement and continued to talk on their phones. This prompted a flight attendant to politely ask the two Senators to simply follow the Federal Aviation Administration rules and simply turn their phones off as all the other passengers on the plane had already done.
According to a House Republican aide who was also on the flight and seated nearby, Schumer demanded to finish his call. The flight attendant told him “No” because the entire plane was waiting on him to shut his phone off in accordance with FAA regulations so they could take off. He was holding up the entire flight.
Schumer then ended the call, but promptly began to rage at the flight attendant proclaiming he was entitled to continue his phone conversation until the cabin door was closed.
Priceless! @VicciTrue US Airways flight attendant told Chuck Schumer she doesn’t make the rules, she just followed them..
— Paul Baldovin (@PaulBaldovin) February 2, 2017
The aide then responded to Schumer’s ridiculous antics, stating – “She said she doesn’t make the rules, she just followed them.” As she walked away, Schumer was heard muttering, “Bitch!”
Rather than being embarrassed for Schumer’s sanctimonious and pretentious outburst, Gillibrand attempted to cover for Schumer. She initially claimed the senior senator was “polite” and that “he turned off his phone when asked to.”
Once the story of the true version of events was made public, circulating the news – Gillibrand’s office made a second statement with a correction.
Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Schumer, said later that “[t]he senator made an off-the-cuff comment under his breath that he shouldn’t have made, and he regrets it.”
Gillibrand’s aide, Glen Caplin, said – “Chuck did the right thing by apologizing.”
The flight attendant accepted his apology but also stated Schumer has a reputation that precedes him – “He is NOT nice!”
After the incident Schumer was very critical and extremely vocal, condemning Republicans for “trying to score cheap political points” from the incident. Yet as evidenced by Schumer’s own words and actions that this seems to be HIS issue, not that of a flight attendant, or Supreme Court Justice nominee, the Russians, or President Trump.
Schumer is too busy playing political games and pandering to this or that special interest group, as well as adding commas and zeros to his own personal bank accounts than he is in effectively serving the people that elected him to Washinton. Schumer, your hypocrisy is showing again, you might want to tuck that back in!

CNN Correspondent Gets Hit With Tear Gas On Mexican Border
The King of Fake News is covering the invasion coming from south of our border.
Actually, they’re probably cheering the migrant caravan on because they know they will vote Dem in the future.
At any rate, a reporter for CNN got hit with tear gas fired by Mexican police. Should we be laughing about this? Oh hell yeah. Poetic justice, LOL. 😀
The Daily Caller is reporting:
CNN correspondent Bill Weir was reporting from the border between Guatemala and Mexico, following a caravan of migrants approaching Mexico, when he and others were hit with tear gas on Friday afternoon.
“We’re on a bridge that separates Guatemala from the southern tip of Mexico here. There’s about 400 riot policemen, Federales, on the Mexican side behind a twenty-foot steel fence that has been padlocked shut and for some reason, the authorities on the Guatemalan side, let this huge surge of humanity in,” Weir said. “They all came streaming up to the fence. At first, they tried to form a single-form line because they were told they’d be let in one at a time in a humane, orderly way. But the crowd was just too powerful.”
“They were greeted by the cops. The policemen are now forcing the gates back shut after firing either smoke canisters — I didn’t smell tear gas,” he continued. “Now people have backed off, there’s a little more space and you can see all the shoes that have been lost in the scramble. There’s a man in front of me suffering from heat stroke, maybe having a heart attack.”
Earlier this week, President Trump threatened to close the southern border and halt aid.
“This is really just an exercise in crowd control we’re witnessing here. Imagine if they threw open the gates to a concert, as we’ve learned that lesson in years past and people are trampled,” Weir added. “That’s what happened when they opened up the Guatemalan side. Oh, tear gas. Tear gas. The canister landed literally two feet from me. No, no, no, no, don’t throw rocks!”
Sarah Sanders Laughed In CNN Host’s Face After Catching Him In SICK Lie During Live Interview
Chris Cuomo must have really thought he had a “gotcha” moment when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders agreed to an interview with him for his CNN show, “New Day.” CNN ratings have been sinking faster than the Titanic in recent times.
Routinely called out for selective coverage and significant bias, as well as flat out “fake news” Cuomo likely thought he could regain some credibility as a “serious journalist” by baiting Sanders. Cuomo did not disappoint launching into the expected diatribes and the usual lies regarding the Trump administration.
Cuomo asked Sanders if she liked her job as press secretary for President Donald Trump. Sanders naturally answered in the affirmative and went on to tout accomplishments by the Trump administration citing the strong economy and President Trump’s recent legislation benefiting veterans. Realizing he had no method of attack here, Cuomo then chose to wonder aloud, inquiring if Sanders believes the president’s contention with the media is sustainable.
Sounding much like junior high boy passing notes stating “Do you like me? Check ‘yes’ or ‘no’?” Cuomo asked: “Do you think that by saying, ‘We stink,’ that we don’t like veterans, that we are bad for America, the president says we are enemies of America, do you think that that works for you long-term?”
Sanders all but laughed in his face and retorted sharply:
“ What I think is important to remember is that you guys get to ask the questions, but you can’t always complain about the answers,” Sanders shot back. “You constantly ask the same question over and over and over again and expect different answers and then get mad when the answers don’t change.”
Realizing this interview was not going in the direction he wanted it to go, Cuomo attempted to cut Sanders off, interjecting with: “Yeah, that’s the job, that’s the job!”
Sanders returns fire with a truth bomb Cuomo cannot refute, stating: “No, the job is to get information and to report the news!”
That must have been a bitter pill for Cuomo to swallow, but Sanders was not finished with her total annihilation of this journalistic hack. She adds: “Unfortunately, you guys quit reporting the news. When I can read a news story and I have no idea what side of the story the reporter is on, that’s a good news story. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a lot of news that looks like that [on CNN].”
Sanders simply does not suffer fools, nor does she engage in silly word games where one side tries to convince the other that the grass is not indeed green. She refuses to engage in the media spectacle CNN’s Jim Acosta and April Ryan attempt to create during White House press briefings.
Naturally, Cuomo got his dander all up at Sanders’ suggestion that he is a mere opinion journalist and then attempted to make the ridiculous claim that Sanders does answer the public’s questions during White House press briefings.
Sanders was having none of Cuomo’s attempts to deflect. “I answer questions all day, every day,” Sanders retorted. “It’s what I spend every minute of the day doing. It’s why I’m sitting here at 9 o’clock at night answering questions to you.”
Cuomo is known for touting the leftist party line and citing approved propaganda from the Democratic party line for line. He has been caught in lie after lie, yet manages to keep his job at CNN because his brother is the governor of New York and his father was the former governor of the same. Without his family connections? He would be asking such riveting questions as, “Would you like fries with that?”
In 2015, Cuomo repeated the lie “a video started the Benghazi attack” siding with Hillary Clinton’s account of the events that occurred. He to this day denies any wrongdoing on the part of the Obama administration. The key to journalistic integrity is being willing to hold anyone and everyone accountable for their actions regardless of political affiliation. It seems Cuomo missed that memo.
Hot Air reported on Cuomo’s coverage of the House Select Committee on Benghazi in October of 2015:
“In preparation for this long-anticipated event, CNN’s Chris Cuomo took the opportunity to interview committee member Martha Roby (R – Alabama 2) regarding what we should expect out of this Q&A session. It’s definitely a newsworthy topic which has captured the nation’s attention, but Chris might have wanted to prepare a bit more before the interview. He managed to get nearly everything wrong with his questions and seemed genuinely shocked when he failed to fish out the answers he was looking for.
Here are just a few of the premises which Cuomo fed into the interview. Let’s see how he did.
Cuomo: “But then you get to legitimate questions of well, what else are you going to learn? You’ve had the secretary, the former secretary now, for over six hours. She spoke specifically to what she knew before, during and after. She gave you answers that may not have been satisfying to you, but she gave answers. She talked to you about the threat. She talked to you about her recognition of the threat. She talked to you about her response to the threat.”
That’s certainly a damning accusation. Unfortunately, there are just a few details which Cuomo got wrong.
Hillary Clinton has never testified before the House Select Committee on Benghazi. She testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for two and a half hours in January of 2013. (Worth noting that it was controlled by Democrats at the time.) She also testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee for three hours in the same month, which was more than two years before we got any of her emails.
Here’s another golden Cuomo moment:
“[Secretary Clinton’s] been the target. You’ve had members of your party, members of this committee, say that it is about her, they were going after her, you had Kevin McCarthy bragging about bringing down her poll numbers, you had that sentiment echoed by other Republican congressmen. So it’s not just me who’s bringing up this cynicism.”
That would make a great talking point except for the fact that the only two Republicans who have said anything of the sort are not on the committee and have no direct knowledge of anything that the committee has done.”
Just last week Cuomo made the wild claim that there was “proof of potential collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign. Except, there isn’t, except maybe in Cuomo’s mind. Rather than actually look at the facts, Cuomo chose to go head to head with Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-R) who blew him out of the water exposing his propaganda peddling for the lies it is. Facts are pesky sometimes.
Jordan stated plainly the federal government lied when it obtained Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. He also stated it relied on a false dossier to prop up its case during the course of his interview with Cuomo.
Cuomo attempted to refute:“They did disclose where the dossier came from. It is not all false allegations in that dossier.” Any judge worth the black robe he or she dons daily while sitting the bench and takes their pledge to ethics seriously would not approve a warrant if they knew the evidence was a bought and paid for unverified dossier by Hillary Clinton. Nevermind, there is an active and ongoing investigation by the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Justice (DOJ) currently.
Jordan was incensed at Cuomo’s obvious lies and attempts to peddle propaganda and replies: “You know this to be the case even though you have never seen the FISA application yourself?”
Cuomo had nothing much to say after that, yet he still continues to promote the ridiculous and completely false narrative: “no one spied on the Trump campaign” even after Democrats were forced to publically acknowledge that it was true.
Cuomo and others like him seem to forget that there is a huge difference between “Freedom of the Press” and actual investigative reporting. It is the polar opposite of allowing “The Onion” or “Mad Magazine” to show up and attempt to interfere with the ability of actual journalists to have open and respectful communication between the American people and The White House in seeking answers to questions we have.
