Missouri case that toppled GOP governor Eric Greitens boomerangs on Soros-backed prosecutor
[JustTheNews] St. Louis circuit attorney faces grand jury probe, chief investigator indicted in echoes of Trump-Russia collusion reversal in Washington.

Kimberly Gardner made history in 2016, roaring to an election victory as St. Louis city’s first African-American chief prosecutor on a campaign funded heavily by the liberal mega-donor George Soros. Four years later, she finds herself under investigation and her chief investigator already indicted for a prosecution gone bad, one that forced Missouri’s Republican governor to resign in what some now believe may have been a political attack.

Gardner, a Democrat and the city’s circuit attorney, was forced in 2018 to withdraw her indictment accusing Gov. Eric Greitens of felony invasion of privacy for allegedly taking a picture of his scantily clad girlfriend and threatening to release it if she talked about their affair. Gardner’s office dropped the charge after admitting she did not have proof of the photo or its transmission.

If he runs again and wins, he’ll have a mandate to really drain the Missouri swamp. And no doubt he’ll have his list prepared so he can start on the day he’s sworn in. If he runs again.

#2  WHO is a Chinese kiss-ass.

Everything they did was to downplay the issue and remove any association with China.

The WHO is a fucking joke. It's a political body first and foremost. See their past responses to Ebola, SARS, etc. They generally just sit back, downplay things happening in certain countries and exaggerate things happening in other countries, then declare "PANDEMIC" or not. They don't actually DO shit.

The US should just defund the organization.

EXCLUSIVE: 'I did it to manage my anxieties.' Bill Clinton reveals in Hillary Hulu doc that he had oral sex with Monica Lewinsky to ease pressures of the job, feels 'terrible' scandal defined her life and confessing to Chelsea was the worst
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
*Bill Clinton said he had the affair with Monica Lewinsky while he was in office because it helped to 'manage my anxieties'

*The former President makes the claims in an interview featured in a new documentary series -'Hillary' - to air on Hulu Friday

*He said that when he met Lewinsky, the pressure of the job was too much and he thought, 'Here's something that will take your mind off it for a while'

*The former First Lady candidly reveals that in the aftermath of the scandal the couple underwent 'painful' marriage counseling

*Clinton apologizes to Lewinsky, saying he feels 'terrible' that the affair defined her life

*The series features extraordinary access to the Clintons' inner circle and *Hillary's life from her student days to losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump

*She's explained that she agreed to the documentary 'because I'm not running for anything'

Bill Clinton
...former Democratic president of the U.S. Bill was the second U.S. president to be impeached, the first to deny that oral sex was sex, the first to have difficulty with the definition of the word is...
claims that his affair with Monica Lewinsky was one of the 'things I did to manage my anxieties'.

The former President suggests, in an explosive documentary seen by DailyMailTV, that he had the fling with the ex-White House intern while he was in office because it helped with his own issues.

Bill reveals that at the time he met Lewinsky the pressure of the job made him feel like a boxer who had done 30 rounds and he looked at Lewinsky as 'something that will take your mind off it for a while'.

He makes the claims in an interview featured in the new documentary series that will air on Hulu about his wife Crooked Hillary Clinton
...former first lady, former secretary of state, former presidential candidate, Conqueror of Benghazi, Heroine of Tuzla, formerly described by her supporters as the smartest woman in the world, usually described by the rest of us as The Thing That Wouldn't Go Away...
, called 'Hillary', where the former First Lady and Secretary of State candidly reveals that in the aftermath of the scandal the couple underwent 'painful' marriage counseling.

Bill offers an apology to Lewinsky in the documentary that will premiere on Friday, and says he felt 'terrible' that her life was defined by their affair.

But he said that at some point when things don't return to normal 'you've got to decide how to define normal', suggesting the infamous former intern should just move on.

The four-part series features extraordinary access to the Clintons' inner circle and examines Hillary's public life from her student days to losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump
...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party...
.
But the part about the Lewinsky affair - which the political couple rarely address in public - will likely be the most scrutinized.

The scandal led to Bill being impeached in 1998. But he survived the trial in the Senate and remained in office during his second term.

The last time Bill spoke about the scandal was in 2018 and it backfired spectacularly because he said that he did not owe Lewinsky a private apology.

This time he went through in great detail, at times appearing emotional as he talked about the moment he finally came clean to his wife.

His hand was forced in 1998 when it became apparent he had lied to a grand jury investigating his personal affairs by denying the affair.

Bill had also denied it to Hillary - and she believed him.

He said in the interview: 'I went and sat on the bed and talked to her. I told her exactly what happened, when it happened. I said I feel terrible about it. We've been through quite a bit in the last few years. I said I have no defense, it's inexcusable what I did'.

Hillary tells the cameras: 'I was just devastated. I could not believe it. I was so personally just hurt and I can't believe this, I can't believe you lied.'

DNC Will Raise Debate Threshold After Tulsi Gabbard Earns a Delegate
She doesn't have Short-Shot's billions to buy the right rule change
[Heavy] An official with the DNC has announced on Twitter that the threshold for participating in a Democratic debate will be increased. This announcement was made around the same time that American Samoa caucus rewarded Tulsi Gabbard with a delegate after she earned 29.3 percent of the votes with 99 percent reporting. The DNC's debate threshold had allowed anyone to qualify to be in a debate if they gained one delegate in a primary or caucus, but the tweet from an official with the DNC indicates that might change.

Xochitl Hinojosa, the communications director for the Democratic Party according to her Twitter account, tweeted about the threshold changes on Twitter.

She wrote: "We have two more debates– of course the threshold will go up. By the time we have the March debate, almost 2,000 delegates will be allocated. The threshold will reflect where we are in the race, as it always has."

Ilhan Omar's endorsement of Bernie Sanders flops in Minnesota
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] Since last year, Sen. Bernie Sanders
...The only first openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around...
has held deafening rallies with surrogate Rep. Ilhan Omar
...Somali-American Dem representative from Minnesota. She is apparently married to her brother and may be her own grandmaw on her mother's side...
in tow, bringing her to St. Paul the night before the state primary in a bid to win Sen. Amy Klobuchar
Senatrix from Minnesota, candidate for the Dem presidential 2020 nomination. You can tell the kind of husband a boy will make by the way he treats his mother. You can tell the kind of leader a politician will make by the way he treats his staff. Klobuchar is reportedly overbearing, snide, and dictatorial with her people. She sees this as merely getting the best from them. Her name spelled backward in the Russian alphabet would be "Rachubolk," which sounds pretty daggone suspicious...
's home state of Minnesota.

But months of campaigning with the bombastic Minneapolis representative not only couldn't lock down the state, but it didn't even help deliver Omar's congressional district. Instead, Sanders lost by more than 60,000 votes in a state he won in 2016. What's more, he didn't lose to native Klobuchar (which could have been expected), but to Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Old, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant...
, who didn't contest the stIlhan Omar's endorsement of Bernie Sanders flops in Minnesotaate but surged overnight after Klobuchar bowed out of the race and backed him.

Since getting elected to the Minnesota statehouse in 2016, Omar has been lionized by the media, and after winning her snap bid for Keith Ellison's congressional seat in 2018, she's been nothing short of revered. After suffering a heart attack in October of last year, Sanders relied on the endorsement of Omar and fellow socialist superstar Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez
Dem represntative from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details...
, with much of the political press attributing his rebound in the polls to their support.

Despite months of campaigning, Omar couldn't put him over the top in the state or in her home turf. Biden beat Sanders in Hennepin County, which houses Minneapolis and Omar's district. He also won Ramsey County, which includes the other Twin City of St. Paul, where the Monday night rally with Omar was held.

Wendy Davis wins Democratic primary in Texas’ Congressional District 21
[KVUE] Wendy Davis
She's baaaaack!
has won the Democratic nomination in Texas’ Congressional District 21. She will run against incumbent Chip Roy in the general election on Nov. 3 to determine who will represent the district in the U.S. House of Representatives.

AP called the race as Davis was ahead by a wide margin over her opponent, Jennie Lou Leeder.

Davis rose to fame after delivering a nearly 13-hour filibuster as a Texas State Senator in 2013. In 2014, Davis lost to Gov. Greg Abbott
... governor of Texas. Abbott is a Republican. His 2014 Dem opponent, state senatrix Wendy Davis, thought the absolute, most pressing, most important issue facing the state was abortion. Abbott beat the pantyhose off her. His 2018 opponent, Lupe Valdez didn't dwell too heavily on abortion, but she lost too...
in Texas’ gubernatorial race.

Texas’ Congressional District 21 spans from Austin to San Antonio and covers Blanco and Gillespie counties.

According to Davis’ official campaign website, some of the issues she stands for include affordable healthcare for all Texans, common sense action regarding gun laws and reducing carbon emissions in the U.S.

More details on Davis’ policies can be found on her website.

Roy defeated Democrat Joseph Kopser in the 2018 general election. He filed for reelection in early December.

Biden Promises to Give 11 Million Illegal Aliens a Pathway to U.S. Citizenship
[CNSNEWS] "The middle class is getting clobbered...they're badly hurt," former Vice President Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Failed seeker of the Democratic presidential nomination on multiple occasions, vice president under Barack Obama, giving it a last try in his dotage for 2020...
told his supporters in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

"The people, they're the reason why I'm running. They’re the reason why I'm a Democrat in the first place."

Biden then made it clear that he's talking about some of the people:

"These are people who build our bridges, repair our roads, keep our water safe, who teach our kids; look, who race into burning buildings to protect other people; who grow our food, build our cars, pick up our garbage, our streets -- veterans, dreamers, single moms.

"And by the way, every Dreamer, have hope, because I’m coming and you're not going anywhere.

"And we're going to provide a pathway, a pathway, for 11 million citizens. If the other guys voted for the-- I won’t get into that, I won't get going," Biden said, apparently losing his train of thought.

"Look, the ironworkers, the steelworkers, the boilermakers, the plumbers the electricians -- these are the people that have been forgotten.

"Folks, that's why we need an economy that rewards work, not just wealth; that reestablishes the middle class and this time brings everybody along -- everybody!"

#1  So stupid. Criminally foolish. Completely incoherent.

Does he even begin to realize that shit-wage illegal immigration is one of the biggest reasons that, pre-Trump, workers' wages in this country actually DECLINED over thirty years?

Does his audience understand basic realities of the labor market?

Even the Marxist politicians who run Europe's parties of the left get this. No leftist pol or labor leader would even consider the notion of swamping the labor market with millions of illiterate imported helots: they'd think you'd lost your mind if you proposed this. In Joe's case they'd be right.

Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around...
(S-USSR) behind him at 27 percent. Warren trailed at 22 percent, almost 100,000 votes behind Biden.

Pierce Bush, late President George H.W. Bush’s grandson, loses Texas congressional bid
[NYPOST] Republican Pierce Bush, a grandson of former President George H.W. Bush, failed to advance out of Tuesday’s primary in his bid for a Houston congressional seat, becoming the first member of his family to lose a race in Texas in more than 40 years.

Aside from the recognition of coming from America’s most enduring Republican dynasty, Bush 34, was endorsed by the outgoing GOP incumbent, Rep. Pete Olson, and raised more money than many of the other 14 candidates in the field.

Troy Nehls and Kathaleen Wall, staunch defenders of President Trump, advanced instead to the runoff. That raised questions about whether the Bush family’s sharp personal festivities with the president in recent years turned off Republican voters.

Chief Justice Roberts issues rare rebuke to Schumer's 'dangerous' and 'irresponsible' comments; Schumer fires back
[FOX] Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts on Wednesday issued a highly unusual and forceful rebuke to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., calling his threatening remarks directed at Associate Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh "irresponsible" and "dangerous" -- prompting Schumer's office to slam Roberts and accuse him of bias.

The extraordinary back-and-forth began hours earlier at a pro-choice rally hosted by the Center for Reproductive Rights, when Schumer ominously singled out President Trump's two Supreme Court picks: "I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price!" Schumer warned. "You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."

Roberts replied in his remarkable written statement, obtained by Fox News: "This morning, Senator Schumer spoke at a rally in front of the Supreme Court while a case was being argued inside. Senator Schumer referred to two Members of the Court by name and said he wanted to tell them that 'You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.'"

Roberts continued: "Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.

#1  Schumer/Schemer:
"You will pay the price!"
"The intelligence agencies ... have seven ways from Sunday of getting back at you"

Pelosi:
"Trump was not acquitted! He's impeached FOREVER!"

Do these people have any idea of how appalling they are?

Everything they accuse OrangeMan of being and doing applies to their own behavior: Lies. Bullying. Criminal, unconstitutional abuse.

They have done, and continue to do, more damage to rule of law and public confidence in government than a thousand Russian agents and dezinformatsiya experts.

Shame on these vile morons.

#10  I shudder to think of the violence that will be unleashed when Ginsburg is replaced with an originalist-- or if Roberts sides with Alito in the Louisiana case.

The prospect of such violence is to me a lot scarier than anything related to COVID

Posted by: DarthVader || 03/05/2020 13:05 Comments || Top||

#14  I don't know any way to interpret Schumer's remarks as anything other than a threat of physical violence, and an open invitation for others (e.g., Antifa, BLM, or some other extremist group) to perpetrate that violence.

The Democratic Party's fanatical devotion to unrestricted, free (i.e., at taxpayer expense) abortion on demand, even up to-- and past-- the moment of birth is both disgusting and frightening, and they're becoming more extreme with each passing year.

Where does it end with these people? With Party-sanctioned murder of anyone opposing their abortion agenda?

Wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Why should they care?

There have never been any consequences for their awfulness and there never will be.

Throw in the sociopathy which seems so commonplace on the left and none of this is a surprise.
