Democratic members of Congress on Wednesday sued President Trump in federal court, claiming he had violated the emoluments clause of the Constitution by accepting foreign funds through the Trump Organization without Congressional approval. The Washington Post broke the news early Wednesday morning, reporting that 196 lawmakers had joined the complaint, more than any lawmakers ever to sign on to sue a president. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) led the filing in federal district court and said Tuesday that while no Republicans had joined the lawsuit, they were welcome to do so. Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) led the legal effort in the
Comments: It´s no wonder a political terrorist like Hodgkinson did what he did today when we see behavior like this. This is yet another lawless, outrageous example of the derangement of the Democrats. Mark Levin mentioned this the other night and said this was phony and not valid. Link below. Of course that won´t make a bit of difference to one of their leftist judges that they most likely shopped around for.
What next? Does anyone think for a minute that all the law firms, lawyers, attorneys and financial consultants that Trump has onboard his administration and in his business companies would let anything of the sort happen? I don´t think so. Nice try but save it for your momma.
here´s how you stop them.. (no charge - just do it) defeat every one at their next election.. (after today that is a cinch) in the meantime, have a citizen´s group SUE EVERY ONE OF THEM on a SLEW of charges.. one after the other.. they will be so busy defending themselves and getting ready for their next election that they won´t have time for THEIR frivolous lawsuits..
Counterclaim and hit them with a discovery request to see just what naughty things they have been up to. Okay Sessions, now is the time for that righteous indignation to turn into productive work. let´s start frog walking dems ... today.
And they will find corrupt leftist judges who are part of the resistance to agree with them. Then it will go on and on and on. What an abuse of the system. I hope to hell the people remember all this in 2018 and beyond.
Their plan is working. They said they would bury him in Red Tape and they are. They will keep it up as long as it works, and it is. I like the idea of having a WAR ROOM who will dig up dirt on every dingle person who takes part is this lawsuit. Then move on to more Democrats who plan to do the same. Maybe get something on Mueller himself!
Clearly those Democrat politicians believe that only liberal Democrat lawyer politicians are qualified to be elected President. That narrow perspective leaves out most Americans who have accomplished great things in their lives.
Hey Ryan!!! Still want to sing Kumbaya with these clowns?? What is wrong with you and the spineless wonders in our party? Why cannot you stand up for the conservatives for once in your life and demand cease and desist from the democrats and the media?
Presidency Senate Congress 5-4 Supreme Court 2/3 State G overnorships ...hey snowflakes how´s the resistance going... I resistance all right....of you idiots....keep it up dodo birds,extinction is your destination...
MSNBC is giving a show to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt and liberals are predictably freaking out. The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday explained that Hewitt’s first show will air on Saturday, June 24. Writer Jeremy Barr added, “In giving Hewitt his own show, MSNBC is sure to raise eyebrows, considering that the network has been doing well mostly on the strength of left-leaning opinion journalists like Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O´Donnell.” The move will "raise eyebrows?" That’s an understatement. Liberals on Twitter are already attacking the cable network for hiring a “fascist.” It was just last week that Avengers movie
Did Senate Republicans really need to spend a month behind closed doors, incurring the ire of the American people, just to copy and paste Obamacare? (Snip) There will be tremendous acrimony between the two parties in the ensuing days over Obamacare, because they both need to play to their constituencies and continue the binary fight club racket reminiscent of WWE. However, in reality, nobody is repealing Obamacare, nobody is addressing the core health care issues in America, and nobody is offering a vision of freedom, prosperity, and a solvent health care and health insurance market. Everything is working within the
Former “Crossfire” co-host and CNN political pundit Paul Begala praised Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on “Anderson Cooper 360” Wednesday, saying, “If there was a Mount Rushmore for house speakers, Nancy Pelosi would be on it.” Begala continued lauding Pelosi, comparing her to former President Franklin D. Roosevelt. “She passed national healthcare,” Begala said. “Even Franklin Roosevelt could not do that.” Begala cited her unpopularity ratings at 50 percent, proclaiming that they are lower than House Speaker Paul Ryan’s unpopularity ratings at 54 percent. Begala then said it is high time that Democrats go on the offensive and take the
In March, California’s Attorney General slapped David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, with a whopping fifteen felony charges. Daleiden and Merritt, by way of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), released several horrifying undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the price of aborted baby parts. (Snip) Wednesday, San Francisco’s Superior Court dismissed the first fourteen charges against Merritt, finding them legally insufficient. Life News reports: The San Francisco Superior Court on Wednesday dismissed 14 of 15 criminal counts but the pair are still charged with one count of conspiracy to invade privacy. However the court dismissed the charges with leave to amend —
An open borders organization is working to train immigration lawyers to deal with the increased number of illegal immigrants facing deportation under President Trump. The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has launched the “Immigration Justice Campaign” to quickly get more attorneys familiar with immigration law to stop the flow of deportations. In a news release touting the training effort, AILA called illegal immigrants facing deportation a “representation crisis” and said they would train more attorneys to be “cutting-edge defenders” in helping get temporary amnesty for illegal immigrants:
There was a time when White House reporters did their work and didn’t cry like little babies. The men were men and the women were not to be tangled with (Helen Thomas in her prime). But those days are gone. Long gone. The effete David Gregory (remember him?) made his career at NBC by beating up a White House spokesman every day in front of the cameras during the administration of George W. Bush. Mr. Gregory would grandstand and peacock and ask interminably long questions (more camera time, folks!), berating White House spokesman Scott McClellan, who was kept on a
Sen. John McCain, always the political maverick, recently bucked his own Republican Party by refusing to defend President Donald Trump in the Russia investigation and even suggesting the matter was reaching epic proportions. (Snip) There was just one fact missing from his narrative: Exactly one decade earlier it was McCain’s own presidential campaign that was being roiled by concerns of possible Russian influence in his own inner circle. In fact, McCain’s drama involved the same foreign lobbyist Paul Manafort; one of the same Russian oligarchs, Oleg Deripaska; the same Russian diplomat, Sergey Kislyak, and the same wily Russian leader, Vladimir
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is committed to playing the role of a swaggering anti-President Trump resistance leader, despite that the contrived routine makes her look utterly ridiculous. Even MSNBC´s Mika Brzezinski suggested Wednesday that the senator´s tough-talking bit is a little too on the nose. "You´re quoted all over the place about resisting, pushing back. Even one quote here a week ago, I think, where you used a profanity," the cable news host said. "But the bottom line is we need to fight hard and we´re angry about what´s happening in Washington." Brzezinski continued, saying, "As someone who has spoken
A new proposal by an anti-Trump Democrat on the Federal Election Commission would expand the federal government´s probe into alleged Russian influence to foreign companies and internet sites that take political ads, like Facebook or the Drudge Report, while giving the FEC an unprecedented role that some say oversteps its authority. Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, citing petitions from leftist groups demanding a wider investigation, on Thursday plans to push for commission support for her idea. "This is an all-hands-on-deck moment for our democracy," she wrote in a hasty bid to get the commission to consider it at their Thursday meeting.
A Connecticut college professor has created a firestorm for calling white people “inhuman a-holes” who need to “die” following last week’s shooting attack on congressional Republicans. Trinity College’s Johnny Eric Williams’ social media feed after the June 14 shooting of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise included racial tirades and commentary calling on minorities to “confront” white people and “end this now,” a reference to an alleged system of “white supremacy.” “It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of
Key provisions of the Senate’s ObamaCare repeal bill meant to curb abortion services are in serious danger of being dropped from the legislation, which could cost the bill votes from conservatives. All three provisions, according to aides and lobbyists, are expected to fall short of budgetary rules. Republicans are using budget reconciliation rules to pass the ObamaCare repeal bill in order to prevent Democrats from filibustering it. The problem is that provisions in the healthcare bill must be budget-related to be included in a measure considered under those special rules.
Seventy percent of the general public agrees that news organizations "are subject to partisan agendas," with 85 percent of Republicans believing the news media is influenced by funding, according to a Wednesday YouGov poll. "The rise of fake news, a growing multitude of media sources, and an increasingly polarized nation have Americans learning to take their headlines with a grain of salt," says the YouGov study. The research also shows that seven in 10 Americans agree that news organizations report stories in a way that´s favorable to their owners. Not surprisingly, the poll differs along party lines, with 52 percent
Turns out…money can’t buy you love. Or a House seat in Georgia’s 6th District. Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018. They poured tens of millions of dollars into what became the most expensive House race ever, trying to elect 30-year-old nonentity Jon Ossoff to fill the seat of HHS head Tom Price. They cast the race as a referendum on Donald Trump, and a bellwether for 2018. Republicans will be elated with the outcome, and hopeful
On June 8, Lisa Durden, a producer, filmmaker and media commentator, arrived at Essex County College in Newark to teach her speech class. It was the closing days of the summer session and Durden was already set for the fall semester. She was listed as a returning adjunct professor to teach mass communication and popular culture and two effective speech courses. Two days before, she had appeared as a political commentator on the Fox News show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," invited to give her opinion as to why Black Lives Matter organizers held a Memorial Day event in Brooklyn for black people only. When
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Video of a woman demanding for her son to be seen by a "white doctor" at a walk-in clinic in Ontario has gone viral. CTV Toronto reports the four-minute argument was recorded by a patient in the waiting room at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic on Sunday. In the video, an employee is heard explaining to the woman that a "white doctor" would not be available until 4 p.m. to see her child. To which she responds, "So you´re saying in the whole entire building there isn´t one white doctor? You´re telling me my kid has chest
Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for
Republican Karen Handel has defeated her upstart Democratic challenger in a Georgia runoff election. Handel, an experienced politician and former Secretary of State for Georgia, emerged on Tuesday night with a narrow win over 30-year-old Jon Ossoff. Incomplete returns show she is on track to receive about 53 per cent of the vote. Her narrow victory in Georgia´s 6th Congressional District allows Republicans a sigh of relief after the hotly-contested race, which is considered the most expensive in US House history. The special election was considered one of the first tests for Donald Trump´s controversial presidency, with voters given a chance to put another
(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill
(Video) - The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information. The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began,
A city on Mars with a million inhabitants could be achievable within 50 years, the space entrepreneur Elon Musk has forecast, as he laid out plans to turn mankind into a multi-planetary species. The SpaceX founder warned that humans would need to venture away from Earth to avoid a ‘Doomsday event’ and our ‘eventual extinction.’ But he said that a huge Martian city could be established this century, which would not just be an outpost, but a fully functioning society with ‘iron foundries and pizza joints.’
Ed Morrissey may be on vacation but he’s still keeping his ear to the door of American politics. He popped up on Twitter this morning, searching for his dictionary to look up the definition of “chutzpah.” The reason for his apparent confusion was a rather off-putting interview with Georgia-06 Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff conducted by NPR’s Rachel Martin. The subject of the massive, record-breaking amount of cash dumped into this race couldn’t be avoided, so Martin asked Ossoff to weigh in. He did so, but his take on the subject rang a bit hollow to say the least. (Emphasis added
As a resident of Hollywood, CA, I didn´t exactly see crying in the streets, but I did "feel their pain," as the saying goes. According to (where else?) Variety, the local entertainment industry went in big time in support of Jon Ossoff, the jejune sometime documentarian, in his quest to win the election in Georgia´s sixth congressional district. Rosie O’Donnell [ je suis shockay], Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Sean Daniel, Connie Britton, Sam Waterston and Kyra Sedgwick are among those who have donated to Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign, while others have been participating in phone banks to get out the vote and
Despite receiving an invitation to meet with President Trump, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have reportedly chosen to decline, per Politico. Both Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus met in March to discuss issues important to CBC members, yet many in the Caucus felt as if little to no progress has been made since that meeting three months ago and that any subsequent meeting would be merely lip service. One Democratic aide illustrated the thinking of some in the Congressional Black Caucus saying, “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show.” Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault,
SANDY SPRINGS, Georgia—After $50 million and a congressional contest bigger than some presidential primaries, the special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to replace Rep. Tom Price ended up where it began, with the Republican House seat still in Republican hands and national Democrats still looking for a way to turn the resistance to Donald Trump into a victory at the polls. (Snip) On the Democratic side, the combined efforts of the Ossoff campaign, the DNC, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee help build a monster operation unprecedented in Georgia Democratic politics. By the end of the race, they had
