Jim Jordan Spotlights Congress’s Attempt to Take Away Constitutional Right

Congress tried to hide it – but Jim Jordan just shone a spotlight on it!

Jim Jordan is quickly becoming the new Lion of House. As Democrats keep pushing to betray the will of the people, Jordan is fighting back.

And he just exposed another Democrat scheme to take away your rights.

The media, of course, was silent on what they just voted on. But Jordan made sure everybody knew.

From Twitter:

“Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee: -First voted to take away Americans’ firearms. -Then voted to impeach the guy we elected President. All in less than 48 hours. And you wonder why people can’t stand this town.” Read more…

State AGs Launch Nationwide Effort Against Google

A coalition of state attorneys general representing 48 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico are determined to settle the Google advertising monopoly question once and for all. “We have 50 attorneys general from across the nation who are involved in this investigation that we’re leading from Texas,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told reporters. “This is a company that dominates all aspects of advertising on the Internet and searching on the Internet as they dominate the buyers’ side, the sellers’ side, the auction side, and even the video side with YouTube.” That’s not even touching on the search engine giant’s partisan politics manipulating what information makes it to voters.

On Monday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced a massive antitrust probe into Google, specifically focused on the massive internet company’s advertising power, which verges on a monopoly.

“We have 50 attorneys general from across the nation who are involved in this investigation that we’re leading from Texas,” Paxton said in a press conference on the steps of the Supreme Court building. “This is a company that dominates all aspects of advertising on the internet and searching on the internet as they dominate the buyers’ side, the sellers’ side, the auction side, and even the video side with YouTube.”

Evidence Suggests Steele Dossier Played Role in Launching Trump Investigation

New evidence confirms once again that disgraced former FBI Director James Comey is a liar…this time thoroughly debunking Comey’s claims that the discredited Steele dossier did not launch the collusion delusion investigation of President Trump. In his memoir, “A Higher Loyalty,” Comey wrote, “The information that triggered it was the Papadopoulos information that came in late July. The FBI didn’t get any information that’s part of the so-called Steele dossier, as I understand it, until after that. And so the investigation was triggered entirely separately from the Steele dossier.” Except now the Washington Times reveals that the dossier was in hand well before the July 31 investigation launch.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Despite earlier claims that the discredited Steele Dossier played no role in the launching of the FBI investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, an examination of available testimony by the Washington Times suggests otherwise. Based on the available evidence, it appears that Christopher Steele’s bogus allegations were, in fact, available to key players in the FBI prior to the launch of the investigation into the bogus Trump-Russia conspiracy theory—contradicting claims by former FBI Director James Comey, and former FBI general counsel James A. Baker. Comey had explicitly ruled out the possibility that the dossier had been the FBI’s possession when the investigation was launched in his memoir, “A Higher Loyalty” He wrote, “The information that triggered it was the Papadopoulos information that came in late July.

Green New Deal Backers Need to Practice What They Preach

With Democrats pushing to implement the radical Green New Deal to allegedly “save the planet” from extinction, Americans should demand that every politician who backs it sign a pledge to dramatically reduce their own carbon footprint and live by the same rules and standards they want foisted upon the rest of us.
That means Bernie Sanders and his wealthy liberal comrades who rail against fossil fuels will vow to never fly on a private jet again — or set foot on a gas-guzzling yacht. Climate alarmists will no longer be permitted to own multiple homes either, as all of the above contributes to man-made global warming, that nasty carbon Democrats insist is destroying Mother Earth.
Every Democrat pushing the highly intrusive and costly Green New Deal — estimated to cost at least 93 trillion — should be leading by example and channeling Henry David Thoreau’s days living at Walden Pond and commit to living in one very small, sustainable home. Liberals must also give up their cars, boats, lawnmowers and any other vehicle that uses fossil fuels, given that’s an industry they’ve pledged to eviscerate.
Given the urgency behind their claims that the world’s coming to an end in a decade if we don’t act quickly to combat climate change, politicians and all those asking Americans to make major sacrifices — and leave millions of jobs across industries that the Green New Deal will decimate — should walk the walk and stop all travel, opting to use video conferencing instead.
If their far-fetched prophecy is correct — that a climate apocalypse is fast approaching — not a just scam to justify a massive government takeover of nearly every aspect of our lives, then why wait?
Democrats should be dramatically curbing their own carbon footprint and practicing what they preach without delay.
That means proponents of the Green New Deal must forgo owning beach houses or vacationing by the ocean, because they insist sea levels are rising at an alarming rate. If that’s true and massive floods are headed our way, as well as tropical storms, cyclones, hurricanes and other natural disasters, then they shouldn’t being living anywhere near the ocean.
That means former President Barack Obama can’t buy that $15 million manse on Martha’s Vineyard he’s reportedly eyeing. Same with former Secretary of State John Kerry, who currently owns a seaside estate, as do many other “beautiful people” across the country who sound the alarm about the devastating effects of climate change.
How are they magically immune to its harmful effects?
Democrats who want to control our thermostats, take away our cars and tell us how to live — while decimating over 10 million jobs in the U.S. oil & gas industry alone  — should also give up their wine cellars and memberships.
After all, importing one’s favorite malbec from Argentina, sauvignon blanc from New Zealand and wines from other faraway places emits detrimental carbon via long-distance transportation. Shouldn’t liberals who pound the table over climate change be shopping locally and significantly reducing their own consumption of food, products, goods and services that have an associated environmental cost?
Yes and yes.
Green New Deal backers, including co-sponsor Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., should also pledge to not have any children, as humans emit carbon and produce a lifetime of waste these alarmists insist are polluting oceans and the environment. With Armageddon coming in just a few short years — so they say — how can they justify having a family?
And while we’re at it, perhaps voters should also insist politicians no longer celebrate birthdays or holidays because gift giving uses energy to produce and transport.
Right now, throughout the nation, there are liberals and eco activists demanding bans on plastic straws, plastic bags, bottled water and other single-use disposable products. Shouldn’t these folks who are dictating to the masses what we can and cannot buy be pledging to never to use those products themselves?
Or own stock in any company that produces goods and services detrimental to the environment?
Here’s the deal: Americans are fools if they allow any politician or power grabber in Washington to take away their freedom, their car, their boat and even their hamburger, and uproot their entire way of life with radical environmental policies while polluting the environment at will. That type of egregious double standard shouldn’t be tolerated, as it creates massive social injustice and inequality, where elites are living like aristocrats and the little people sacrifice.
Not a scenario any self-respecting American should accept.

Bernie: Kill “Poor” Babies, Save the Planet

During a CNN town hall debate on Wednesday night, 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT) proposed funding foreign abortions in poor countries to combat human overpopulation. When asked if he would be “courageous enough” to discuss abortions and birth control to “curb population growth” as a means to “address climate catastrophe,” Bernie responded, “Yes,” before extolling the virtues of the Mexico City agreement sending taxpayer dollars overseas for foreign abortions, particularly in the developing world. Then again, no one is surprised that a socialist supports killing babies. Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders suggested that taxpayers should fund abortions in poor countries during a CNN town hall debate on Wednesday night in response to whether he supports population control.

Martha Readyoff, identified by CNN as a teacher, said to Sanders: “Human population growth has more than doubled in the last 50 years, the planet cannot sustain this growth.”

“Empowering women, and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact,” Readyoff continued. “Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe.”

Booker Proposes $3 Trillion Climate Justice Plan

Democratic presidential wannabe Senator Cory Booker (NJ) just presented a “deal” to combat global warming, and it’ll only cost $3 trillion from taxpayers over the next ten years. According to Fox News, the plan includes getting the U.S. back in the Paris Climate Agreement, shutting down approved pipelines, and requiring passenger vehicles to have zero emissions by 2030. As an added bonus, Booker’s plan also proposes to tackle economic inequality, with $50 billion a year set aside for an “Environmental Justice Fund.” Granted it’s only a “bargain” compared with Bernie’s $16 trillion and AOC’s $30 trillion Green New Deal plans to give America’s money to the Third World in exchange for nothing. Read more…

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Democratic presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker is proposing to spend $3 trillion over the next 10 years to combat climate change and economic inequality.

I don’t know whether to cheer or throw my coffee mug through the monitor.

Compared to Bernie’s $17-trillion and AOC’s $30-trillion Green New Deal, Booker’s proposal is an absolute bargain. But in addition to being a Warrior for Gaia, Booker wants to set up an “Environmental Justice Fund” to fix the problem of income inequality.

I know, I know… what does economic inequality have to do with climate change? Well, nothing. Nothing at all.

Omar Demands Protection for Terrorism-Linked Company

Anti-America Represenative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just called for the protection of a company known to provide financial support to the Al-Qaeda-linked African terrorist group Al-Shabaab. “Somali government and peacekeeping forces need to protect @Hormuud and the Somali telecom industry as they make enormous contribution to the economy and provide vital services,” Omar tweeted. In fact, Hormuud was founded and continues to be run by Ahmed Nur Ali Kim’ale, Al-Shabaab’s chief financier for weapons, private fighters, and ammunition–a connection so well known that it has been documented in international media AND even in a 2009 UN Security Council report. Read more…

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Al-Shabaab is responsible for many terrible terror attacks. A couple of examples are: the 2015 attack on the University of Kenya in which 147 people were killed and 79 others were injured, and the attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi in which 59 innocents were killed and 150 were injured. In other words, we’re truly talking about one of the worst and most bloodthirsty terror groups in the entire world. As such, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Al-Shabaab is linked to Al-Qaeda.

What is surprising, however, is that a company that’s known for providing financial support to Al-Shabaab can count on the support of… Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

Beto Wants to Confiscate Your Guns

Beto O’Rourke — still under the allusion that he has a chance — is upping the ante in his campaign rhetoric. Now, according to remarks at a campaign stop in Virginia over the weekend, if Beto’s elected he’s going to confiscate ALL of America’s semi-automatic weapons. “I want to be really clear, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.” Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Far-left Democratic presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke announced over the weekend that if he is elected president, he intends to confiscate tens of millions of semi-automatic firearms from law-abiding Americans.

O’Rourke made the remarks while campaigning in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday when he was asked by a reporter how he plans to address peoples’ fears that the government is going to come and take many of their semi-automatic firearms.

O’Rourke responded: “I want to be really clear, that’s exactly what we are going to do. Americans who own [the technically undefinable sub-class of semi-automatic firearms referred to as “assault weapons”] will have to sell them to the government.”

Time for White House to Launch Media Outlet to Combat Fake News

It’s time for the White House to launch its own media outlet. Never in the history of America has any president been subjected to such an onslaught of “fake news,” biased reporting and unfounded conspiracy theories spread by corrupt so-called journalists, some of whom have made their way into the U.S. justice system spurring illegitimate criminal investigations.

The Russia Hoax is one such example. For the past several years, the media, scores of high-ranking Democratic lawmakers and the deep state, all of whom loathe the president, spread a massive disinformation campaign saying that Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton. The media relentlessly peddled baseless propaganda to delegitimize and derail the Trump administration, and were later debunked by the special counsel investigation, which found no such conspiracy took place.

That is just one destructive and costly example in a sea of lies the biased left-wing media traffics on a regular basis to smear the president and keep Democrats in power.

Another recent example was on MSNBC on Tuesday, where prime-time TV host Lawrence O’Donnell falsely reported that Trump had a Deutsche bank loan co-signed by Russians, further fueling the now-debunked Russian-collusion tale. O’Donnell later retracted the unfounded allegations, tweeting: “Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process. I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air. I will address the issue on my show tonight.”
This is the type of corrosive fake news that Trump’s combatting day in and day out.

As such, the American people are being shortchanged, because instead of the president focusing on solving our nation’s many problems, such as the opioid and immigration crises, or the ongoing tariff war with China — things he was elected to do — he is distracted daily and must instead respond to lies told by the media.

It’s no wonder the president has called the media “the enemy of the people,” as too many so-called journalists and TV pundits don’t report the news — they invent it or twist it to push a political narrative, sowing discord and cultural divisions across the spectrum.

Adding to the dumpster fire is the extreme bias against conservatives by Big Tech. Google is obviously manipulating search results to shape public opinion and damage the president, while social media networks are censoring conservatives with deceptive algorithms and other shadowy tactics to advance their own political agenda.
What’s a president to do under such extraordinary, hostile circumstances?

Keep lashing out on Twitter in the hopes his tweets aren’t blocked from his millions of followers’ newsfeeds via a deceptive practice known as “shadow banning”? Or take the matter into his own hands by launching a White House media outlet? In full disclosure, I pitched the latter to White House officials last spring.

I think the White House should launch an internet radio platform and an app where the president and his administration can bring their message directly to the American people. The benefits? No extremely biased and warped media filter, no social media algorithms, no toxic TV personalities distorting the White House’s agenda and achievements.

The app can be used to stream the president’s speeches, interviews with his administration and — my nostalgic favorite — Sunday-night fireside radio chats by the president, similar to those of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt beginning in 1933. The app should cost $1 to download, which could generate millions of dollars that should go toward veterans organizations that help our heroes.

That said, the president and his administration should still do media interviews as well as continue to use social media, but by carving one’s own path and bringing the White House’s message directly to the people, they will put unethical mainstream media on notice.

Get back to reporting the news honestly, fairly and ethically, or guess what. CNN, the Washington Post, The New York Times and other outlets will continue to lose readers and viewers — and, thereby, influence — as potentially millions of Americans flee their outlets and download the White House app instead.
Problem solved.

Ilhan Omar Demands UN Run US Border

Anti-America Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) demanded that the globalist United Nations take over the U.S.-Mexico border during an immigration forum in “Little Mogadishu” Minneapolis. “We should do what any other country does by dealing with this situation in a serious way,” Omar said. “So, we have to bring in the United Nations’ high commissioner on refugees, an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely.” Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) demanded this week that the United States bring in the United Nations to handle the border crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, a move that would undermine the United States’ national sovereignty.

Omar made the remarks on Tuesday while speaking to her constituents during an immigration forum in south Minneapolis.

Omar, who was accused this week of having an affair with a married man, lectured the audience about losing the “moral high ground” on the issue of immigration.

“We should do what any other country does by dealing with this situation in a serious way,” Omar said. “So, we have to bring in the United Nations high commissioner on refugees, an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely.”
