Democrats Are Raging Mad After Finding Out What Trump Has Been Doing To Their Documents

Published

on

When I first read this story, I did not believe it and I still pretty much don’t. Leftists and the media are now claiming that President Trump tears to shreds important White House documents that are required to be preserved under the law. Whether it happened or not, Democrats are incensed about it like always. Veteran records management analyst Solomon Lartey is claiming that White House staffers like himself have been tasked with going around and picking up the pieces of documents and taping them back together “like a jigsaw puzzle,” according to Politico. He also whines that he was paid an annual salary of $65,969 to do this. Sounds like he wasn’t happy with his pay.

Lartey spent the first five months of Trump’s presidency taping documents back together after Trump tore them up in anger, or so he claims. I can see the President tearing up things from time to time out of anger and frustration, but this guy and others are claiming he does it all the time and I just don’t buy that. Trump is far too professional for that and he’s not dumb, emotionally or otherwise. Not only does this guy say Trump tears up the documents, he says he shreds them into confetti-sized bits. I don’t believe that claim whatsoever. That would not be out of anger, that would be time-consuming and serve nor purpose whatsoever.

This entire claim is to assert that Trump is in violation of the Presidential Records Act, which says the White House must preserve all memos, letters, emails and papers that the President deals with and store them in the National Archives as historical records. Here’s why I think this guy and his cohorts are claiming this. Hillary Clinton actually violated that act over and over again and it can be proven. She had staffers shred documents and when she deleted emails and texts, she was violating the law. So tit for tat, they think Hillary’s issue is going to get her nailed eventually and want to spread the grief to President Trump. But no one is buying what they are ridiculously selling here. No one.

This sounds like sour grapes as well… one of Lartey’s associates, Reginald Young Jr., who worked as a senior records management analyst, said that during over two decades of government service, he had never been asked to do such a thing. “We had to endure this under the Trump administration,” Young said. “I’m looking at my director, and saying, ‘Are you guys serious?’ We’re making more than $60,000 a year, we need to be doing far more important things than this. It felt like the lowest form of work you can take on without having to empty the trash cans.”

Politico says that staffers knew they could not change President Trump, so they just quietly went about taping together documents. None of this sounds legit to me. Allegedly, staffers would collect pieces of paper from the Oval Office and the President’s private residence and send them to records management for Lartey and his colleagues to reassemble. And wonder of wonders, Politico is citing two disgruntled staffers that have since been fired and ‘people familiar with the process’. Right.

From People:

““We got Scotch tape, the clear kind,” Lartey told Politico. “You found pieces and taped them back together and then you gave it back to the supervisor.”

Lartey, who said his entire department was on taping duty during the early months of Trump’s presidency, told Politico that the papers included newspaper clips on which Trump had written notes; invitations; and letters from constituents and lawmakers.

“I had a letter from [Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer] — he tore it up,” Lartey said. “It was the craziest thing ever. He ripped papers into tiny pieces.”

Lartey said staffers in the records department were still being tasked with taping back together documents as recently as this spring. But that team grew smaller after Lartey and many other career officials were abruptly terminated from their positions earlier this year without any warning or explanation as to why.”

Probably because they were leaking to the media made up stories and blabbing when they shouldn’t have to hurt the President. Just my opinion on the whole matter.

Then Politico goes on to relate things they have absolutely no proof of. It’s rumors and gossip and not real journalism again. They claim other White House staffers have been demeaned in different ways and they use former communications director Hope Hicks as an example. She was charged with fetching coffee and steaming Trump’s pants while he was still wearing them, according to a recent tell-all book by former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Let’s just say that I have a very hard time believing that as well. But say it was true, you know Hicks wasn’t the only one that fetched coffee or helped Trump with minor details so he could go about his business. This is silly.

On Twitter, Democrats had a collective meltdown, feigning outrage over this. That’s so hypocritical considering what Hillary Clinton actually did as opposed to what they are making up and accusing the President of. These people need to seriously get a life and some solid facts for a change.

By the way, you want to talk about the Swamp… Lartey had 30 years under his belt of working in the government. He needed to be cleaned out and let go. And you’ll be surprised that these same lackeys had nothing but praise for the Obama administration and their record keeping. Wonder if they helped shred stuff, delete texts and emails for Hillary and others? I guess you could call that organized, right?

Per Politico, Lartey, 54, and Young, 48, were career government officials who worked together in records management until this spring, when both were abruptly terminated from their jobs. Both are now unemployed and still full of questions about why they were stripped of their badges with no explanation and marched off of the White House grounds by the Secret Service. As I said, I’m sure there was a very good reason for it and this Politico piece goes to prove my point.

Both had to sign resignation letters and were terminated immediately. Young described the firing as traumatic and frustratingly Kafkaesque. “The only excuse that I’ve ever gotten from them,” he said, “was that you serve at the pleasure of the President.” And that’s more than enough reason for them to be gone.

BREAKING: Migrant Caravan Swells Massively Overnight – Invasion Imminent At Border

Published

* By

Yesterday we had reports that as many as 2000 Central American migrants had turned back.

According to reports, thousands joined the caravan out of the blue overnight, though. Numbers now range at over 7000 in the group. Apparently Mexican forces are standing down or being overwhelmed.

We need the military on the border ASAP!

The L.A. Times is reporting:

“A caravan of Central American immigrants started walking north into Mexico early Sunday, blowing past police and immigration officials as they continued their journey toward the U.S. border.

A group of several thousand immigrants set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. They were headed for the city of Tapachula, about 18 miles away.

It was unclear whether the police planned to stop the group. At one point, a large contingent of federal police officers blocked the road before retreating. At another point, a small group of police watched as members of the caravan passed, some of them running and skipping.

When a small group of immigration officials tried to stop the caravan to convince its members to apply for political asylum, the caravan swept past them too.

On Friday and Saturday, officials watched as thousands of migrants illegally crossed the Suchiate River that forms the border between Guatemala and Mexico.

Gerardo Hernandez, head of the civil protection agency in the municipality of Suchiate, Chiapas, said 7,233 immigrants were registered over the last three days at a shelter in Ciudad Hidalgo. He said his agency has been asked to help provide the immigrants with food and shelter.

The caravan left the impoverished and crime-ridden Central American nation of Honduras more than a week ago, and its participants began arriving late last week at the Guatemalan border town of Tecun Uman, just across the river from Ciudad Hidalgo.

The migrants say their intent is to cross into the United States. The Trump administration has vowed to stop their advance and has threatened Mexico and Central American countries with economic reprisals if they fail to stop the migrant group.

President Trump has made the caravan a campaign issue at his rallies in the closing weeks of the U.S. midterm election campaign, labeling the assemblage of bedraggled migrants a threat to U.S. security and saying he would call out the military should the migrants make it to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, under pressure from Trump, has said that no migrants will be allowed to enter the country in an “irregular” manner.

On Friday, Mexican authorities put on a show of force when several thousand caravan participants tried to storm the official Mexican border crossing into Ciudad Hidalgo. With tear gas and police in riot gear, Mexico thwarted the attempt to breach the border, an operation that drew praise from Trump.

The caravan is made up mostly of men but also includes hundreds of women and children, some of whom said they were fleeing violence.”

The Gateway Pundit also reported:

“The illegal migrant caravan is sweeping through Chiapas in southern Mexico on Sunday, their numbers having jumped to over 7,000 overnight from just a few thousand as it became apparent the caravan would not be stopped by Mexico. After blocking the migrants on a bridge Friday, Mexican officials allowed the migrants to swim and raft across a river from Guatemala into Mexico Saturday and then regroup in a riverside park. Mexico also allowed over 600 women and children to legally enter for processing on Saturday.

Reports from the caravan state that on two occasions Mexican federal police stood in formation to meet the caravan as the migrants staged a massive march up a highway. As the migrants approached both times the Mexican police stood down and let them pass. A Mexican official was reported to have said they can’t stop 7,200 people.

Kate Linthicum with the Los Angeles Times reported on the two failed attempts to stop the caravan Sunday: “I’m only just realizing the massive scale of this caravan as they march north into Mexico. It’s several thousand people. Just look…A group of immigration agents stopped the caravan to ask them to apply for asylum in Mexico. The caravan blew past them…The caravan just swept past a large contingent of Mexican federal police, who didn’t do anything to stop them…”

State Assembly Just Impeached Their Entire Supreme Court – They’ve Had It!

Published

on

...

* By

In what has to be the feel-good story of the day, The Hill is now reporting that the West Virginia House of Delegates actually voted on Monday night to impeach all of the justices on the state Supreme Court. This decision was prompted by reports of extravagant spending on office renovations.

In a series of votes that of course fell along party lines, lawmakers approved 11 articles of impeachment against the four sitting justices. Sending the process on to the State Senate.

State lawmakers had originally voted to impeach Justice Allen Loughry on eight articles after he and his office spent $363,000 in renovations. This became an issue when he was allegedly found to have lied to the House Finance Committee about having a $42,000 antique desk and computers, owned by the state, transferred to his home. And also was found to be using state vehicles for his personal use.

Here is more on this via Fox News:

“West Virginia lawmakers, seeking to remove every justice on the state’s four-member Supreme Court amid what they called an “over-the-top” spending scandal, impeached three justices on Monday, including Chief Justice Margaret Workman.

One article of impeachment said Workman and Justice Robin Davis signed documents in their roles as chief justices allowing for senior status judges to be paid higher than allowed wages. Lawmakers say the overpayments violated state law and stopped when they were challenged by the Internal Revenue Service.

Earlier Monday, the Republican-led House of Delegates voted 64-33 to send an impeachment article against Davis to the state Senate for trial. The vote came shortly after lawmakers also impeached indicted Justice Allen Loughry by a vote of 64-33. Loughry’s impeachment vote, which came after approximately two hours of debate, took only seconds, NPR reported.

Fox reported that one justice escaped impeachment, but that has now changed:

“Justice Beth Walker is the only current justice who has not been impeached as of Monday evening.

Walker was cleared late Monday of an impeachment article for spending $131,000 on renovations after taking office last year. She still faces another article that accuses her and the three other justices of abusing their authority by failing to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over critical matters. Some lawmakers said they didn’t condone Walker’s spending but said it paled in comparison to other justices.”

The Charlotte Observer is now reporting that another vote was held & Justice Walker has been impeached also:

“The West Virginia House of Delegates has impeached all four of the state’s Supreme Court justices.

The Republican-led House on Monday night impeached Justice Beth Walker and the other justices for abusing their authority. The article says they failed to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over important matters such as working lunches, the use of state vehicles and office computers at home.

Walker was the last of the four justices to be impeached. She had avoided impeachment earlier when the House voted not to pass an article against her for $131,000 in renovations she made after taking office last year.”

Fox News continues:

“The impeachments do not remove the justices from office. The articles will go to the Senate, which can formally remove the justices only by a two-thirds vote.

The charges were largely related to the justices’ use of state funds to conduct office renovations. Davis spent more than $500,000 on her office and Loughry spent more than $363,000 on his.

Loughry is under federal indictment and named in eight impeachment articles, including allegations he lied about taking home a $42,000 antique desk and a $32,000 suede leather couch.

On Monday, Loughry was impeached under six impeachment articles, including for allegedly driving state vehicles for personal use and of using state-owned computers at his home. He was also impeached for his role in assuring higher pay for senior status judges.

Republican Delegate Tom Fast of Fayette County said he had seen the work done in Davis’ office, including track lighting on the floor. He characterized the renovations as “over-the-top” and said the impeachment article “is one of the more easy ones” for him to support.

However, some legislators said they didn’t support impeaching any justice for wasteful spending, only for articles pertaining to lying, cheating or stealing.

Several lawmakers noted that the Supreme Court has a separate budget and is currently allowed to spend as it sees fit. A proposed constitutional amendment this fall would bring the state courts’ budget partly under legislative control.

But State GOP Delegate John Shott, who helped draw up the impeachment articles, said that if West Virginians do not trust their highest court, “we need to take action to try to rebuild that trust.”

Normally, West Virginia has five Supreme Court justices who are elected to serve a 12-year term. However, Menis E. Ketchum resigned from the state Supreme Court in July after he was accused of alleged federal wire fraud. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of defrauding the state and faces up to 20 years in prison.”

Justice Robin Davis was also impeached after allegedly using $500,000 for office renovations.

Reports are now also adding that state lawmakers had initially overlooked Chief Justice Margaret Workman’s spending of $111,000 on office renovations. So she was also later impeached for her role in allegedly allowing senior-status judges to receive higher wages than allowed by state law. Davis and Loughry have also been accused of this.

Justice Beth Walker was the final justice whom lawmakers voted to impeach after she was found to be guilty of abusing her authority. This article also counted against the other justices. Lawmakers had previously decided to look past her spending $131,000 on office renovations.

The former Justice Menis Ketchum was reported to have stepped down from the bench last month and pleaded guilty to one count of federal wire fraud.

The West Virginia Governor, Republican Jim Justice will be allowed to appoint new justices to replace those who were impeached. He is not required to appoint justices from the same party as the incumbent as well so let the left wing whining begin.
