The head of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch confirmed yesterday that the Democratic congresswoman from California Maxine Waters is inciting and promoting “mob violence” with her repeated calls for protesters to confront Trump officials in public. At the same time, he urged Congress to begin a formal ethics investigation on Capitol Hill.
Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton said, “When you’re out there … inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told “Fox & Friends.” “And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence.”
Here is more on this via Fox News:
“The head of a conservative watchdog group said Thursday that Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is inciting “mob violence” with her call for protesters to confront Trump officials in public, as he urged a formal ethics investigation on Capitol Hill.
“When you’re out there … inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told “Fox & Friends.” “And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence.”
Judicial Watch earlier sent a letter to the House Office of Congressional Ethics calling for an investigation into whether the California Democrat violated ethics rules with remarks she made in Los Angeles telling supporters to “push back” on Trump officials seen in public.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere,” Waters said last month.
Those comments came after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Security Kirstjen Nielsen were pressured to leave restaurants amid the controversy over the administration’s immigration enforcement policies.
Waters has since said she was not calling for violence and accused President Trump of lying about her comments.
But Fitton, in his letter, wrote that her remarks were in violation of House rules requiring representatives to conduct themselves “in a manner that shall reflect credibly on the House.”
Fitton said Thursday that Waters should be reprimanded or even expelled from the House over her remarks.
“You can bet there is an increase in security costs for all Cabinet officials as a result of her rhetoric and comments,” he said.
He also encouraged voters to urge their representatives to act in reprimanding Waters.
“It is so dangerous out there in my view for Trump supporters generally and Trump public officials that someone has to step in and rein them in and the House has an opportunity here,” he said.
Trump has been leading the pushback against Waters, and has claimed that she is “the FACE of the Democrat Party.”
“Her ranting and raving, even referring to herself as a wounded animal, will make people flee the Democrats!” he tweeted Tuesday.
Waters’ comments and other protests against Trump officials were prompted by outrage over the practice of separating families caught illegally crossing the border, as a result of the administration’s “zero tolerance” policies. Trump has since moved to end those separations.
Democratic leaders, meanwhile, have pushed back against Waters’ comments. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi distanced herself from Waters’ remarks, while Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer took to the Senate floor to say that harassment of political opponents was “not right” and “not American.”
On Sunday, Waters expressed surprise that she had been criticized by fellow Democrats.
“One of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis, leadership … will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership and so what I have to do is not focus on them,” Waters said on MSNBC.”
If you may recall Judicial Watch had already sent a letter to the House Office of Congressional Ethics calling for an investigation into whether Waters violated ethics rules with remarks she made at a rally in Los Angeles where she told her supporters to “push back” on Trump officials seen in public. “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere,” Waters said.
Water’s comments came after The White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielson were both pressured to leave restaurants. Sanders was even chased to the restaurant across the street by the owner and employees of the Red Hen Restaurant.
Obviously, Waters has said she has not called for violence and added that President Trump has been lying about here comments
You be the judge:
Crazy Maxine Waters, said by some to be one of the most corrupt people in politics, is rapidly becoming, together with Nancy Pelosi, the FACE of the Democrat Party. Her ranting and raving, even referring to herself as a wounded animal, will make people flee the Democrats!

Now folks, keep in mind this is a woman who was elected to the U.S. Congress. A woman who most people aren’t aware doesn’t even live in her own district in Southern California because it’s considered too dangerous. But has she done anything to fix the situation? Not a thing. All she does is attack President Trump who has foreseen the lowest black unemployment numbers in history. Maybe that’s the issue if poor black Americans became self-sufficient maybe they won’t vote for a race-baiting charlatan anymore.
Obama Just Received Terrible News About His Presidential Library – Trump Gets Last Laugh!
A former president who has had never run anything or had a real job in his life until he became president can’t be expected to be able to coordinate a presidential library. And that’s exactly what happened in the case of former President Barack Hussein Obama.
Chicks On The Right has reported on multiple occasions that the building for the Obama Presidential Library has been snared with issues from the start. And the newest issue will make you livid.
Here is more via The Daily Wire:
“The Chicago Park District has put a halt to preparations being made for the Obama Presidential Library until after a federal court reviews a lawsuit filed by Chicago residents, and federal agencies assess the transfer of historic public land to a private entity.
“But in the meantime, permits and agreements filed by Chicago city officials, and with the Chicago Department of Transportation, reveal a sweetheart rent deal that any Chicago renter (or landlord) would certainly envy: the Obama Foundation will pay a mere $10 for a 99-year lease on what is supposed to be a public park.
“The Chicago Park District had begun felling trees on land destined to become part of the Obama Library complex, but those preparations ground to a halt Monday after the Chicago Department of Transportation refused to grant a permit that would have allowed the Park District to move utility lines running through the site. CDOT delayed a decision on the matter until after the federal lawsuit and federal assessments have been resolved.
“Hearings on the lawsuit, which claims the Obama Library received unprecedented and potentially illegal assistance from the state of Illinois and the city of Chicago, start Thursday. Plaintiffs claim that the Library is being granted part of historic Jackson Park — a huge public green space designed by Frederick Olmsted (the same man who designed New York City’s Central Park) and dedicated for the people of Chicago’s recreational use. They also say that plans to move two major arteries that currently run across Jackson Park will harm economic growth and isolate residents of Chicago’s south side.
“Construction also halted on a new athletic field — a project the city claims has no connection to the Obama Library complex. The Chicago Sun-Times reports the city might have misled residents: the Obama Foundation appears to have granted more than $2 million to the city for the new athletic field because the old one will need to be demolished to make room for Obama’s massive complex.
“The permitting and construction process became even stranger on Wednesday, when the Sun-Times reported that the City Council was working on a bill that would grant the Obama Library a century-long lease on what is, essentially, public land, for a mere $10, even though the Foundation can afford much more — and Chicago is desperately in need of the money.
“One of the ordinances includes the agreements between the foundation and the city, which includes the foundation paying the city $10 for the 99-year pact; the other ordinance clears the legal way to plow under Cornell Drive from 59th Street to Hayes Drive to be reconfigured as green space on the Obama campus,” the Sun-Times says. That’s down from the $1-per-year rental fee proposed earlier in the process.
“In return, the Obama Foundation must pledge to cover the $350 million in expected construction costs for the Library, protecting Chicago taxpayers (the Foundation has already received nearly $220 million in construction grants from the State of Illinois).
“One of the Library’s top critics called the deal infuriating.
“The idea of leasing invaluable, irreplaceable public parkland to a private entity for $10 for 99 years is astounding in this era when public lands and natural resources are under attack in so many places,” the head of Jackson Park Watch told local media. “Besides, Chicago’s finances are extremely precarious. Yes, this is symbolic, but symbolism is significant.”
“Other Chicago museums are located on public property, but those museums have agreements with the city of Chicago in perpetuity.
“The City Council is expected to read and vote on the rental agreement Thursday.”
$10 for a 99-year lease? Where can us common folk get a hold of an awesome deal like this?
This hasn’t been the first big issue the library construction has had. A couple of months back a federal judge let groups, who were suing the Obama Foundation over its plans for a presidential center on Chicago’s South Side, actually begin demanding information from the city of Chicago to determine how the site was selected for the project instead of other private properties which had been declined previously.
In that hearing, the District Court Judge John Robert Blakey agreed to let the plaintiffs proceed. This is being led by Protect Our Parks who want to obtain information from the city of Chicago and Obama officials on how it selected the site. The Barack Obama Presidential Center is being proposed on federal land that was deemed by the government in 2012 to be inappropriate for construction.
Is anything out of Chicago which concerns Barack Hussein Obama not questionable in nature? No other president in recent memory has had so many issues constructing their respective libraries. Maybe that’s because those libraries aren’t of questionable origin representing an individual of questionable origin and character.
Whatever the reason, let’s all be glad the Obama nightmare is over and instead of messing up the country, he is now busy messing up his own library plans.
Little Boy Surprises Trump With Question After Hurricane – Watch How Trump Responds
President Donald Trump arrived in New Bern, North Carolina after the Hurricane Florence hit to be hands on in helping displaced victims. Soon after he landed, he went right to work handing out aid and talking to people on a personal level. As one of the most relatable presidents America has ever had, he made an excellent effort to let everyone there know that they mattered to him and were not forgotten in their struggle.
While the leftist media has nitpicked every word he has said there and step he takes, they are “conveniently” ignoring on incredible moment. While at the aid distribution center meeting with families and offering his support, a little boy walked up to him alone and surprised the president with his question.
Trump stopped what he was doing and gave his full attention to this child who just survived a terrifying nightmare in this natural disaster. His response to the boy’s question was something this child will never forget and the country needs to see.
America The Awesome reports on the moving moment between the boy and the President of the United States:
After Hurricane Florence tore through the coastline, the Carolinas suffered great loss and are now struggling with massive flooding and property damage.

As the president handed out food to those in need while standing at a volunteer station, he also made a little boy’s day better in an adorable moment that stood out among the rest. The boy, named Tucker, approached the president with a simple question.
“Can I have a hug?” the little boy asked.
Trump them stretched out his arms and gave the little boy a hug. The other volunteer workers expressed their delight by giving him a round of applause.
After watching the president embracing Tucker, an elderly women said “I think I’m gonna cry,”.
President Trump’s kindness and support didn’t stop there. It’s clear from the footage and photos that he genuinely cares and isn’t just there to do what he “has to” as president. The boy feeling comfortable enough to ask Trump for a hug, speaks volumes of the kind of approachable and caring president we have — which he proved in his response by hugging the boy.
On the contrary, when former President Barack Obama visited New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, he too hugged a victim in a photo that went viral, however for a much different reason than Trump’s hug of this little boy.
According to PhillyMag, who interviewed the victim, Donna Vanzant, who was famously hugged by Obama while he was surveying the damage, the President at the time also promised her “immediate” assistance. Vanzant definitely needed that help as she said she suffered $500,000 in losses.
Vanzant told PhillyMag what has happened since Obama’s promise:
“After his visit, I sent an email to President Obama. Many days later, I got a response back. It was disturbing.”
“It had nothing to do with what I was asking him. It was a form letter. It thanked me for supporting the troops. He made a promise to rebuild on national television, and I can’t even get this money. It’s heartbreaking, really. I did reach out to Senator Whelan, and I got a response that they were forwarding my email to the person that Governor Christie put in charge of Sandy relief. But from President Obama, I got a form letter.”
“When you get a hug from the President of the United States, you feel like there’s something there. A promise was made. I have two grown kids. One is a U.S. Navy diver. The other one lives at the marina with his wife and new baby, and they lost everything. But I raised my kids to know that your word is your word. You promise something, you keep it, and that was a broken promise. I’ve never been a person to expect free handouts, but the President gave me hope. But now, I just don’t know.”
From this suffering victim’s experience with the former president’s failed promise, it’s no wonder that the mainstream media isn’t interested in showing Trump’s genuine interaction with this child, for fear of the comparison. However, it’s an important comparison to be made since Trump is often accused of doing things for “Photo ops” yet he doesn’t make promises he can’t or doesn’t intend on keeping – which he’s proved throughout his presidency.
It was Obama who had the photo op, capitalizing on this woman’s worst moment to make him look like a good person and leader, but never followed through after getting the accolades from the viral image.
Knowing the inevitable attacks on his handling of this disaster are coming, Trump made a very direct statement in North Carolina:
“Right now, everybody is saying what a great job we are doing with Hurricane Florence – and they are 100% correct,” Trump tweeted. “But don’t be fooled, at some point in the near future the Democrats will start ranting… that FEMA, our Military, and our First Responders, who are all unbelievable, are a disaster and not doing a good job. This will be a total lie, but that’s what they do, and everybody knows it!”
Trump is the man for the job and hasn’t disappointed anyone but liberals who hoped he met their low expectations of him.
