‘Absolutely, Positively Not’: Chaffetz Says
He’s Not Leaving Congress Due to an
Impending Scandal

Mediaite, by Joe DePaolo

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/20/2017 9:55:12 PM

First, he announced he would not seek another term in Congress. Then, he said he might leave early. So what’s the deal, Jason Chaffetz? Is there a scandal coming down the pike that we don’t know about? “Absolutely, positively not,” Chaffetz told Politico on Thursday. “Not in any way, shape, or form.” He added, “If they had something really scandalous, it would’ve come out a long, long time ago.” So why, then, is the Utah Congressman and House Oversight Committee Chairman contemplating an early exit from office? His comments to Politico don’t exactly shed much light on the matter. “I

Just not buying what this guy is selling us. He is either positioning himself for a run at the governor´s seat or Hatch´s or he has something impending and close about to pop out of the closet.

Guys like him just don´t turn tail and run for the tall grass without a substantial good reason.

I never trusted this primadonna. He is so full of himself--and trashed my president, DJT, too many times to suit me.

Scandal? I would bet.

No politician walks away in the middle of their terms unless there an ulterior motive. It is just not in their DNA.

Since incumbents have an advantage in general elections, one reason for an early departure by a sitting congressman is to help keep the seat in his party´s hands.by passing the baton so his replacement can run as the incumbent in the next general election. That´s how it would work iin states whose laws provide for the sitting governor to appoint a replacement in the event of a mid-term vacancy. And Utah´s Republican governor would likely appoint another Republican. The problem with that, though, is that Utah apparently hasn´t had this situation come up in the past 86 years and has no procedure on n place to replace a U.S. Congressional Representative who resigns mid-term.

He´s got to cash in while the Romney´s and the old LDS leader is still alive (in hospital right now) because he´s afraid he won´t have the connections to do so if they both retire.

The LDS is not that rewarding unless you´re a top leader.
Then the perks never stop.

Everyone else just tithes.

Second Dem Made ‘Queasy’ By Lynch Interference
In Clinton Email Investigation
Daily Caller, by Peter Hesson    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/26/2017 12:51:54     Post Reply
Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said on Sunday that Loretta Lynch’s reported directive to former FBI Director James Comey to mislead the public about the Clinton email investigation gives him a “queasy feeling,” echoing similar comments from Comey and Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein. “You know, I think Senator Feinstein’s comment, I would agree with. It does give me a queasy feeling as well,” said Schiff, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, in an interview on CNN. “There may be a perfectly accurate explanation by Loretta Lynch about why she thought ‘matter’ was the appropriate term rather than ‘investigation.’ I

ABC’s Stephanopoulos is one of the most ardent Democrat party ideologues/operatives within media and this interview is a representative example of how he argues exclusively from a position of ideological advocacy against the Trump administration.

During today’s broadcast of CNN’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter took aim at one of his network’s competitors, suggesting that they are little more than a propaganda distributor for President Donald Trump. “What would a daily infomercial for the Trump presidency look like? Actually, we don’t have to wonder. We have the answer right in front of us. It’s called Fox & Friends,” Stelter noted at the start of the segment. Pointing out that the president has given the only two interviews he’s conducted in the past six weeks to the program, he explained that they observed Fox & Friends

WASHINGTON – Russia is recalling its ambassador who has been the source of the collusion allegations against the Trump campaign, according to BuzzFeed News. The Kremlin is sending Sergey Kislyak back to Russia amid the growing US, FBI and congressional investigations into Russia’s meddling in the US presidential election. “He could use some time away,” a US-based diplomat told BuzzFeed. Kislyak, who reportedly met Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn, will say his goodbyes at a fete July 11 at the St. Regis Hotel

In an interview with Fox News’ Howard Kurtz (MediaBuzz), White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer pushed back against the accusations of CNN’s most delicate whaaambulance passenger Jim Acosta, who complains about the lack of press briefings aired on television. “It’s sad that he believes if it doesn’t occur on TV — I think some of these reporters are more interested in their YouTube clips than they are in getting factual news. You look at the number of questions asked over and over again just so the reporter can get a clip of themselves saying something or yelling at someone.” Spicer

Republican candidates will be bolstered by up to $400 million of outside spending from the Koch brothers´ network of donors in the lead up to the 2018 midterms, the group said Saturday. “Three-hundred million to $400 million for this cycle for politics and policy -- we believe we’re headed to the high end of that range,” said Tim Phillips, who heads Americans for Prosperity, a group funded by conservative billionaire financiers Charles and David Koch. “What we’re urging Republicans in the House and the Senate to do is to be bold, to go big,” Phillips said, emphasizing tax and health

A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,

Frustrated Democrats who want to replace House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have an urgent problem: there is no alternative. After leading the House Democrats for 15 years, the San Francisco stalwart has total control of her caucus and is a massive fundraising force that her party cannot easily replace. And as the first female Speaker of the House (2007-2011), she has unique status and an array of female supporters, both inside and outside Congress. Willie Brown, the first African-American mayor from Pelosi’s hometown, cautions in his latest column in the San Francisco Chronicle that those who want to replace Pelosi

The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

She was hit on her right side and has a black eye.” Norris was violently attacked at around 3 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant in Baxley after a couple complained about an order — prompting an argument that led suspect, Latasha Smith, to slap and punch

At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder

Ramadan will come to an end this weekend with the major Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr, and thus far President Donald Trump’s recognition of Islam’s holiest month has been limited to a statement that almost exclusively addressed violence and terrorism. Breaking with a tradition that dates back more than 20 years, to Bill Clinton’s administration, the White House will not be hosting an iftar—the meal Muslims consume to break their fast—in 2017.
