Trump Just Dropped Big Surprise On Maxine Waters On Her 80th Birthday

Published

on

We have all seen how the crazed Congresswoman from the looney state of California has acted since Donald Trump beat her good friend Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential elections.

From calling for President Trump’s impeachment for no valid reason to even going as far as calling for people to violently harass anyone who is involved with the Trump Administration. A few months ago she even told a group of her supporters in California that they need to start showing up wherever Trump Administration Officials show up. And if they see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, or at a gasoline station, to get out and create a crowd in order to push back on them.

“And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents,” she continued

But yesterday, for Maxine Waters 80th birthday The Daily Caller reported that in typical President Donald Trump fashion, he struck back in the best way he knows how.

President Trump frequently refers to Maxine Waters as the “leader of the Democrat party.” Especially after she told people to start harassing and violently confronting those in his administration.

But here is the most interesting fact about good ole “Auntie Maxine” as the foolish voters in her district call her. In the midst of a national financial catastrophe back in 2008 Waters actually used her position as a senior member of Congress and member of the House Financial Services Committee to force Treasury officials to meet with OneUnited Bank. All the rime never disclosing that her husband held stock in the bank. Yet because she is a Democrat, and from California, she is still free to run for office and spew her hatred.

Here is more on Maxine Water’s corruption via The Daily Beast:

“When CREW named Waters one of its “most corrupt” politicians in 2011, the group focused on her role in a federal bailout for OneUnited Bank, on whose board her husband served and in which he owned a sizable stake, during the 2008 banking crisis. Waters arranged a meeting with the Treasury Department at which OneUnited representatives sought federal bailout money. The bank eventually received more than $12 million from the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

That led to an ethics investigation into Waters’ involvement in setting up the meeting. Investigators eventually concluded that she had disclosed her financial ties to the bank, recused herself from decisions involving it, and believed the Treasury meeting would involve representatives from minority-owned banks generally, not just OneUnited (PDF). The Ethics Committee found that she had not violated any rules barring the use of one’s position for financial gain.

But that was not the case for Waters’ then-chief of staff Mikael Moore, who also happens to be her grandson. Investigators found that Moore had taken actions “unambiguously intended to assist OneUnited specifically.” He received an official reprimand.

Moore’s employment in Waters’ office raised issues of its own.

Waters told The Daily Beast that Moore had not violated any rules, and that is true. House ethics rules designed to combat nepotism in the legislature prohibit members of Congress from hiring most family members. But grandchildren were not on the list of prohibited hires when Waters gave Moore the top post in her Washington office. In early 2008, before the ethics committee began probing Waters’ role in the OneUnited bailout, CREW asked House administrators to address that apparent oversight.

“Given the extensive nature of the list, it seems clear that Congress intended for federal employees to avoid hiring relatives, even those with whom they might not have a close relationship such as first cousins,” wrote Melanie Sloan, then CREW’s executive director, in a letter to the House Administration Committee at the time (PDF). She specifically cited Waters’ hiring of Moore.

In an interview earlier this month, Waters rejected any suggestion that her past run-ins with congressional ethics authorities and watchdog groups had any bearing on her Trump remarks, and suggested that criticism of her ethics record—and reporting on that criticism—was an attempt to insulate the president from scrutiny.

“This story that you’re trying to put together, to somehow make it look as if I am as bad as a Trump, and I do bad things, and that somehow I don’t deserve to criticize him, is not credible,” she told The Daily Beast.

“I’d like you to think about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it and I’d like you think about whether or not you’re trying to maybe protect the president somewhat, cleanse him a little bit, make him look a bit better, to make it look as if other people don’t have the right to point these things out about him and other people who you make it look as if they have the same kinds of problems,” Waters added. “I want you to think about that and think about whether or not this is a story you really want to do.”

She denied any equivalence between her own past ethical controversies and those dogging the president.

“If you’re trying to compare me with Trump, it’s totally different,” Waters said.

Pay to Play?

Moore is not the only Waters family member to benefit from the congresswoman’s position. Waters’ daughter Karen has pulled in nearly $650,000 for running a “slate mailer” operation for Waters’ campaign that ethics groups have described as an end-run around campaign finance limits.

For a fee of between $250 and $45,000, candidates and political groups can get Waters’ official backing. The fee earns them a spot on the slate mailers, campaign mailers that promote Waters allies who pay her campaign committee for those mailers. Karen Waters runs the slate mailer operation, and her consulting company is paid to manage it.

“All of that money [from endorsee fees] goes into the production of [the slate mailers] and she is paid for doing that—a very nominal fee when you compare it with the campaign consultants in Los Angeles,” Waters told The Daily Beast of the practice.

She stressed that the slate mailers are entirely above board legally—Waters sought and received official approval for the slate mailers from the Federal Election Commission in 2004—but as with her employment of a family member, ethics groups say the issue isn’t strict legality so much as the spirit of applicable campaign rules.”

President Trump is right, if you combine her rhetoric, along with her unethical behavior, she embodies everything the Democrat Party of today stands for.

Trump About To Drop Presidential Hammer On Obama For Attempting To Overtake Investigation

Published

on

...

* By

More and more is coming out about Spygate. The Obama administration tried to take over the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign, according to The Hill’s John Solomon. He covered it last night on Hannity’s show and then wrote on it extensively at The Hill. Solomon claims that the FBI began spying on members of the Trump campaign to gather the intelligence that ultimately justified the collusion investigation, weeks or even months before the FBI had a formal predicate. If true, the whole thing was cooked up and premeditated. It was indeed a pre-planned coup and President Trump is about to drop the presidential hammer on all of them.

“That’s very important. The rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The predication is July 31, 2016,” Solomon told Hannity. The investigative reporter said he had sources and documents backing up his claim that he would be making public in his report in The Hill on Friday and he did just that.

Solomon started off his well-researched piece with this:

“The bridge to the Russia investigation wasn’t erected in Moscow during the summer of the 2016 election.”

“It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, where foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders reveal. These contacts in spring 2016 — some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters — occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.”

“The new timeline makes one wonder: Did the FBI follow its rules governing informants?”

A very good question and of course the answer is a resounding “no.”

Solomon stressed that informants were making contacts with the Trump officials and providing information to the FBI “much, much earlier than July 31.” Then he drops the bombshell that according to the FBI, the White House and Obama wanted to take over the whole investigation. Here is where that led on Sean Hannity’s show last night:

John Solomon: I’m putting finishing touches on a column that I think will come out tomorrow. And it will reveal two really important things. The efforts to begin targeting and reaching out to Trump campaign officials to gain intelligence on Russia that would ultimately justify the investigation began weeks and maybe months before the FBI had a formal predicate. And that’s very important the rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The investigation is July 31, 2016. My sources and documents that I will be able to make public tomorrow will show that there were contacts going on by people identified as informers, informants, people who provided information began much, much earlier than July 31st. That’s the first part. The second part is as the investigation was just starting to ramp up there are internal FBI documents showing FBI agents talking about the White House trying to take over the investigation. Fears that the Justice Department were going to leak for political reasons and their own personal fear.

Sean Hannity: Slow down. When you say the White House you mean the Obama White House- they were attempting to take over the investigation.

John Solomon: That’s what these messages say.

Sean Hannity: These are FBI messages and this is the Obama White House. How high up are we talking about here?

John Solomon: We don’t know the messages are just what they are.

Solomon covers in the second part of his report the internal FBI communications between former counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, his mistress Lisa Page and others discussing how the Obama White House was trying to take over the investigation. “The words ‘the White House is running this’ are clear in the text message,” Solomon told Hannity, adding that “the FBI agents who opened this case feared that Barack Obama was weak on national security and wouldn’t do what they needed for Russia.” Wowzers. He went on to say, “The political elements of the administration were trying to intrude on the FBI investigation.”

Solomon’s report does not sync with what former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes wrote about the investigation in his new book “The World as It Is,” which is set to be published next week by Random House. Well, duh. Rhodes is lying. That’s what he is good at and has done from the beginning. In his book, Rhodes claims that Obama didn’t know there was an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible contacts with Russia until he left office. That’s just laughable. Rhodes said that “neither he nor Mr. Obama knew at that time that there was an F.B.I. investigation,” according to the New York Times, which obtained an advance copy of the book. Way to cover your collective backsides. No one believes that.

The failed novelist claims in the book that he learned about the FBI investigation from news reports after he left office. Gee, that is the same excuse Obama used multiple times during his presidency. Tell a lie often enough, these guys really think Americans are gullible and stupid. Rhodes is simply insulting our intelligence here. I wouldn’t buy his book to use as a doorstop.

No collusion between President Trump and Russia has ever been proven because it does not exist. The only ones gaining from this are Mueller and his team who are getting paid a ton to try and tie the President’s hands to keep him from doing his job. Taxpayers have wasted almost $17 million on the Russia probe since Mueller took over in 2017, according to a spending report just released by the DOJ. About $10 million was spent in the five months between October 2017 and March 2018 alone. That includes $4.5 million in hefty salaries for Mueller’s team of Trump-hating Democratic attorneys and another $5.5 million spent on random expenses.

Solomon’s report gives justification to President Trump to stop this nonsense.

Do you think Trump should swing the hammer down hard?

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
