Barr’s DOJ Uses Nadler’s Impeachment Investigations Against Him

Attorney General Barr is tired of watching Rep. Nadler’s charades, so he’s playing hardball.

We sat by as Mueller and his team of angry Democrats spent over two years trying to find dirt on Trump. They failed.

Yet Nadler and his team keep pushing for investigations. They’re looking for fire where there is no smoke.

All to create the impression that Donald Trump is going to be impeached (because they know they can’t beat him in 2020).

Nadler seems to think there’s still dirt to be found in Mueller’s nothingburger case. He’s trying to get more information from it-all to drag out his impeachment agenda. Read more…

Warren Makes 150 Billion Social Security Promise, But it Could Cost Her

Elizabeth Warren is eager to break from the pack-and she’s got another big promise for 2020 voters.

It sounds like a great idea, at first. But, as with all liberal ideas, it has a terrible fallout.

Warren, going into last night’s debate, promised to raise Social Security benefits by $150 billion. How much money is that in your pocket each month?

$200. That is sure to win over seniors voters, right?

But the way she plans on paying for it should make over 64 million Americans pretty concerned. Read more…

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…

Survey: Americans Hate “Fake News”

According to a new Ethics in Media study from boutique PR firm Bospar, nearly all Americans–more than 95%–agree with President Trump that #FakeNews is a big problem. Topping the list of concerns are: reports on fake news (53%), reporting gossip (49%), lying spokespeople (48%), celebrity opinions (36%), and left-wing agendas (34%). The study also revealed that a staggering two-thirds think that the current state of America’s journalistic ethics will only get worse headed into 2020. Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Donald Trump’s war with the “fake news media” has only ramped up over the course of his presidency, while mainstream news outlets have become more overtly partisan, as infamously acknowledged by the New York Times executive editor admitting that the paper “built our newsroom” to cover one story — the Robert Mueller-debunked “collusion” conspiracy theory — for Trump’s first two years in office. But do Americans agree that the “fake news media” is a problem?

A new study of the public’s confidence in the media found that nearly all Americans — over 95% — are troubled about the current state of the media. While many likely wouldn’t go so far as to label the media the “enemy of the peope,” a majority were indeed very concerned about the prevalance of “fake news,” the reporting of “gossip” rather than fact, “Left-wing” and “Right-wing” agendas steering reports, outright “hit pieces” and “gotcha journalism,” and the prevalence of “celebrity opinons” and “lying spokespeople.”

Republicans Sweep NC Special Elections

The Left is widely ignoring the 2020 implications after Republican Dan Bishop won the 9th district in blurple North Carolina by two percentage points, and Republican candidate Greg Murphy won North Carolina’s 3rd district special election by a wide margin. Bishop, who is a current North Carolina state senator, campaigned on strong support for the Trump agenda, with the POTUS even showing up to rally for him. It’s also worth noting that despite the media’s hatred for President Trump and all the political spending involved voting behavior mirrored that of the November 2018 mid-terms. Read more…

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Republican Dan Bishop defeated Democrat Dan McCready in a close special election in North Carolina’s ninth congressional district Tuesday night.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Bishop defeated McCready by slightly more than two points, with 50.8 percent of the vote (94,984 votes) to McCready’s 48.6 percent (90,824 votes). Bishop’s total margin of victory was 4,160 votes.
Decision Desk HQ called the race for Bishop at 9:54 p.m. eastern, but no other media outlet had yet called the race.

Dave Wasserman, political editor of the Cook Report, called the race for Bishop at 9:55 p.m. eastern in this tweet:

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. Read more…

Here’s more from  PJ Media…

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. Read more…

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.

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.
