19 GOP Congressmen Call For Mueller Hearings

The Daily Caller
Alex Pfeiffer, White House Correspondent
4:06 PM 10/13/2017

Excerpt:

Nineteen Republican congressmen signed on to a letter sent out Friday requesting congressional hearings to keep special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of lawyers accountable.

"This team has sweeping authority and an open-ended mission, yet they are allowed to operate largely in secret, selected by and ultimately accountable to only one person: Mr. Mueller himself," the letter sent to House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte and Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley states.

Texas Republican Rep. Brian Babin started asking his colleagues to sign the letter in August. The congressmen who signed on include: Iowa Rep. Steve King, Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, California Rep. Duncan Hunter and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat.

"With numerous reports emerging almost every day on possible conflicts of interest and allegations of political bias, it would be in the interest of both the public and the Special Counsel team to speak to the American people through their elected representatives in Congress," the letter continues on to say. "Accordingly, we respectfully request that one of broth (sic) of the Judiciary Committees immediately convene a public and open hearing or series of hearings to bring Mr. Mueller and his team out of the shadows and into the public square."

Mueller's investigation has broad authority. He is authorized to investigate any coordination or links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign; charges such as perjury, obstruction of justice, intimidation of witnesses and destruction of evidence and any matters that "arose or may arise directly from the investigation."

Misunderstanding America and Its Constitution

Article:


I know I won the lottery when I was born in America. Think about that word, "America." Go anywhere on this third rock from the sun, and tell anyone you are an American, and he will know you are talking about the United States of America.

Yet Canadians are Americans, and so are Mexicans, as well as Argentinean gauchos and blood-spilling Cali Cartel members. Pinochet was an American, and so was the murderous Che -- so was "Don't cry for me," Evita, and Simon Bolivar.

All North and South Americans are Americans

Yet, when anyone says "America," they are talking about these United States of America. Most people don't really understand what America is. Ask anyone on the street to define this country and most will inevitably say it is a democracy, which, to almost universal surprise, is wrong.

America is not a democracy; it is a republic. When I talk to people about this, I tell them to imagine 50 separate countries bound together by a set of rules, our Constitution, which while among the briefest of world constitutions, is a document that forged a nation, which became the longest lasting of free republics to have ever graced this planet.

This glorious nation, this America, is the envy of the world. I don't see people walking through the desert for days to get into Russia, or making a boat out of old tires to get to Cuba.

Yes, they do whatever they have to do to get to Europe, but I would wager that if the millions who have fled Barack Obama's legacy in the Middle East had their druthers, they would rather come here. It's just that the Atlantic is a pond too big to swim.

Another thing to note is that America, in its two-hundred-odd years of existence has always had relatively open borders. America is also the most ethnically diverse place on the planet. America is a nation of immigrants founded by immigrants. That shouldn't preclude us from being careful in this day of rampant religious terrorism from picking and choosing who we want to allow access to this most bountiful of Edens.

I have long believed that when someone tells you he is going to kill you, you should believe him. Picking and choosing is not racism, as many would have you believe; it is due diligence. It is prudence.

Let's, for a moment, review the motives of the progressive plan to throw open our borders to anyone who wants to come here. They do this not out of generosity, or compassion, or even a desire to create a better world -- no matter what they say. They do this as a deliberate scheme to create enough new voters to guarantee their dream of eternal progressive governance, with them of course, in total control of everything. If people have to die for their dream, if this grand experiment in representative governance is destroyed, then so be it.

They will always be on top of the food chain and it won't be them, or their families, or even their friends who will do the suffering. It will be the little people, who will pay for progressive hopes and dreams.

They care so much about us that if they have to kill us to make our lives better they will.

They misunderstand America and its constitution, which is why the EPA's destruction of Barry's Clean Power Plan (CPP) tasks them so. They view themselves as the ones we've been waiting for and because of that, if they break the rules for our own good (see above), then, we should grant them a dispensation.

If they wanted the Clean Power Plan, or DACA, or any of the things Barry thought he could create out of thin air with his pen and phone, they should have enacted legislation to implement them. Why have a constitution at all if our betters are not bound by its strictures?

Media Suddenly In Love With 'Dubya' After He Attacks Trump
The president that mainstream journalists loved to hate for eight years is all of a sudden their favorite guy

Excerpt:

What happened to the president they once reviled?

Mainstream media journalists are all of a sudden anxious to give the words of former President George W. Bush a full airing, and to refer to them in the most complimentary way.

Bush, wrote The Washington Post, had offered a "blunt assessment" in his speech in New York on Thursday and "warned about threats to American democracy."

*snip video*

NBC News said that Bush had spoken with a "sharper edge," delivering a "clear condemnation of the current president without mentioning him by name."

But the millions of Americans who thumbed their noses at Establishment Republicans and the media, rejected Bush's brother Jeb absolutely, and voted for outsider Donald J. Trump for president last November, might have heard Bush's words differently.

Bush had started by saying democracies "face new and serious threats" but "seem to be losing confidence in their own calling and competence."

He went on to mourn an earlier era, the post-World War II era, when America, he said, benefited from the "advance of free markets" and the "strength of democratic alliances."

"Free nations are less likely to threaten and fight each other," he told the audience. "We know, deep down, that repression is not the wave of the future. We know that the desire for freedom is not confined to, or owned by, any culture; it is the inborn hope of our humanity."

He went on to say that America is not "immune" from trends that include "resurgent ethno-nationalism" and "anger about immigration."

But the most-played clips on television on Thursday night and Friday were of Bush saying: "Bigotry seems emboldened" and "We've seen nationalism distorted into nativism" and have "forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America."

Another media favorite was this one: "Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication."

The former president, the most recent star player in a family with close ties to Saudi Arabia, the number-one sponsor of Sunni extremist terrorism in the world -- also jumped on the bandwagon on Russia, called the formerly communist country a "hostile power" that is trying to turn Americans against one another.

Republicans were not amused.

"Wish I had never campaigned for this president. Have lost all respect for him and the family," wrote one woman on Facebook on Friday, above a news article about Bush's speech.

"George W. Bush gave us a phony war, crashed the economy and covered up the Saudi role in 9/11 -- has no right to criticize," legendary politico Roger Stone tweeted on Friday morning.

Despicable People

Excerpt:

Just when you thought liberals had sunk as low as they could, they break out the shovel and start digging.

Nothing is sacred anymore. Nothing is off limits, and everything is political. This week showed us once again there is nothing Democrats won't exploit, no grave they won't dance on, if they think they can score political points. And there's nothing "journalists" won't spin, won't lie about, and no hypocrisy too great to prevent them from smearing their political opponents.

The sad deaths of four soldiers in an ambush in Niger normally would not be a political football, but these times are anything but normal.

In the past week, a media narrative developed about how President Trump hadn't spoken publicly about the deaths of the men at the hands of an ISIS affiliate group. This didn't happen by accident, it happened suddenly and from multiple media outlets and "journalists," as if it were coordinated.

"Why hasn't Trump said anything about this?" they asked.

Of course, the White House had spoken about it the day after it happened, but since it came from the president's spokeswoman and not him directly, this fact was ignored. Presidents don't speak about every death in battle and never have, but this one was manufactured to be different. It was going to be "Trump's Benghazi," or so the media hoped.

But there were no warnings ignored, like in Benghazi. There was no 13-hour delay in sending aid. There was no blaming of an Internet video to cover up the failure of the administration to act, and no one was sent to prison for a year to aid in the re-election of the president. The only similarity with Benghazi is the body count.

But liberals never let the facts get in the way of a good story, and since they control the media there is no reason to. Human decency used to be what held back their darker impulses, but they are no longer burdened by such constraints.

When clownish Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D), accused the president of callousness in his condolence call to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, it was a new low for a party setting new lows at a record pace.

Calls from a president are not spontaneous. Staff calls and sets up a time convenient for both. So that Wilson was there was not a coincidence, it was planned. It was going to be a painful call to receive, as every condolence call is soon after losing a loved one. That the Johnson family was upset after it was not surprising; what was is how Wilson marched right to a receptive media to spin their grief into a political knife.

Wilson's actions were despicable, as was the media's adopting of her word as gospel and her tactics. Basic human decency was torched when the president's response was portrayed as "an attack on a Gold Star family" and not what it was - a refutation of a partisan attack by an activist Democrat and media.

President Trump never has been critical of Johnson's widow. He's been critical of Wilson and her fellow travelers in journalism. But you'd never know that if you watched CNN or MSNBC. They are lying to their audience because, well, that's what they do.
