President Bush Took FIRM Stand On Kavanaugh And People Are Furious About What He Had To Say

Published

on

Controversy regarding Judge Kavanaugh during the past few weeks has exploded. Everyone is divided into their own sides of the aisle. The opinion of one high profile politician could sway public opinion in a different direction, though.

The Daily Caller reported,

“Former President George W. Bush still supports Brett Kavanaugh after the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on sexual assault accusations against the Supreme Court nominee. Politico asked Bush on Thursday if he still supports Kavanaugh’s nomination.

“Yes, he does,” Freddy Ford, Bush’s chief of staff, said. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified on Thursday that Kavanaugh groped her and held his hand over her mouth at a high school party in the summer of 1982. Kavanaugh categorically denied the allegation and accused Democrats of conducting a coordinated smear against him.

In addition to his on the record support, Bush is also reportedly whipping votes for Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Jeff Flake of Arizona, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have all received calls from Bush in recent days urging them to support Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh served as an associate counsel in the White House and then staff secretary during Bush’s presidency. When Kavanaugh was first accused of sexual misconduct by Ford, Bush said, “Laura [Bush] and I have known and respected Brett Kavanaugh for decades, and we stand by our comments the night Judge Kavanaugh was nominated: ‘He is a fine husband, father, and friend — and a man of the highest integrity.’”

Business Insider reported,

“According to The Post, in recent days, Bush has contacted at least some of the senators seen as swing votes — Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin and Republican Sens. Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, and Lisa Murkowski — to discuss their votes as Kavanaugh faces multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

The Post’s report suggests Bush decided to contact the senators because they’re less likely to be swayed by President Donald Trump. The report indicates Bush called the senators before Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers in the 1980s, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Flake announced on Friday that he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh. Shortly after releasing his statement, Flake was confronted by survivors of sexual assault as he headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Kavanaugh worked for Bush during the 2000 presidential-election recount in Florida. Three years later, Bush nominated Kavanaugh into the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit. Kavanaugh was Bush’s White House staff secretary until 2006, while his confirmation to the court was delayed. Bush voiced his support for Kavanaugh in July when Trump tapped the judge as his choice for the Supreme Court seat.

“He is a fine husband, father, and friend — and a man of the highest integrity,” Bush said of Kavanaugh. “He will make a superb Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.” Bush reaffirmed his support of Kavanaugh after Ford’s allegation surfaced, saying he and his wife “stand by our comments.”

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations of sexual misconduct against him. The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday heard hours of emotional testimony from Ford and Kavanaugh. The Senate is expected to vote on his confirmation on Friday afternoon.”

Judge Kavanaugh’s history with the president goes way back. After he finished his clerkship in the Supreme Court he worked with Ken Starr in 1997 as Associate Counsel in the Office of the Independent Counsel. Some of his colleagues included the likes of Alex Azar and Rod Rosenstein.

While at the White House he dealt with many different types of constitutional and legal issues. He even partook in the investigation into the death of Vincent Foster. During this investigation, Kavanaugh was criticized for investing money that came from the federal government into investigations of so-called conspiracy theories that were partisan.

Several years later in December 2000, Judge Kavanaugh started working with President Bush regarding the ballot recount issues in Florida. Shortly thereafter, he was brought on as an associate by the White House Counsel, who at the time was Alberto Gonzales.

He worked on the scandal surrounding Enron, the nomination of now Supreme Couty Justice John Roberts, as well as the nomination process of Miguel Estrada which was ultimately unsuccessful. A few years later, he started serving as an Assistant to the President and the White House Staff Secretary. He had succeeded Harriet Miers.

President Bush eventually nominated Judge Kavanaugh to the United States Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. The vacancy was created by Judge Laurence Silberman. For over three years his nomination was stalled in the Senate. Senator Dick Durban called him the Forrest Gump of Republican politics and accused him of being too partisan. Not much has changed since then in that regard.

Share if you think it says a lot that the former president is continuing to advocate for Judge Kavanaugh.

Share if you think Judge Kavanaugh is innocent.

Share if you think this whole process has been a disgrace.

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall

Published

* By

When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.

Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.

SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED

I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.

Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.

Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.

Three Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers Will Testify This Coming Week, “Explosive” Allegations to Come…

Published

“With regard to the investigation, which doesn’t get a lot of attention, into the Clinton foundation, the DOJ designated John Huber to look into this. They have 6,000 pages of evidence that they’ve gone through. The foundation raised $2.5 billion, and they’re looking into potential improprieties. What’s next on this investigation?” the Fox News host questioned Congressman Meadows.

“Well, I think for the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this,” Meadows answered.

The Gateway Pundit reports:

Some of the allegations they make are quite explosive, Martha and as we just look at the contributions — now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year, but if you look at it, you know, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as Secretary of State — then it dipped down when she was no longer there and then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there’s all kinds of allegations of you know, pay-to-play and that kind of thing, “Meadows said.

Take a look:

In the three years following Hillary Clinton’s departure from her position in the State Department, the Clinton Foundation donations dropped by 90%.

The Gateway Pundit writes, “Hillary Clinton left the State Department in 2013 and it looks like nobody wants to pay since she can no longer play.”

Currently, the Clinton Foundation is being put under investigation by the Justice Department and the FBI for a whole plethora of reasons.

The Hill reports that the Clinton Foundation is also being investigated by the IRS in order to find out whether or not any “tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use.”

Numerous Clinton emails backing up the idea that the Clinton Foundation was involved in “pay-to-play” schemes during Clinton’s time serving as the head of the Department of State have been found by Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
