Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) came unglued yesterday, and rightly so, during the Michael Cohen hearing when Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) suggested on the record that he was racist. Meadows invited Lynne Patton, a top Trump housing official who is black, to attend the hearing in order to push back on any accusations that Trump was racist and that set Tlaib off.
“Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren’t racist and … the fact someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee is alone racist in itself,” Tlaib said as she took aim at Meadows. What a massive insult and a monstrous breach of decorum. She should have been ejected from the hearing for that stunt.
Meadows is an ally to President Trump and a good and decent man. He also heads up the conservative Freedom Caucus. After Tlaib’s despicable outburst, he utterly destroyed her. Meadows demanded an immediate retraction as he should have. The New York Post reported, “Getting emotional, Meadows said his nieces and nephews are people of color and he rejected any notion he’s a racist.” The only racist I see here is Rashida Tlaib.
This woman is a bigot of epic proportions, so accusing anyone else of bigotry is hypocritical in the extreme. Here are just a few instances of her anti-Semitism:
- Promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories;
- Embraced anti-Semites and alleged Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers;
- Supports anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaigns against Israel;
- Does not support a two-state solution between Palestine and Israel;
- Been photographed with Islamic terrorist sympathizers; and
- Belonged to a Holocaust denier group.
Watch the exchange.

It wasn’t lost on some that Tlaib got Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings to defend Republican Mark Meadows.
That’s just brilliant move there Tlaib. You got Cummings to defend Mark Meadows. That’s some A+ strategery.

Here is a partial transcript of the incident from Ryan Saavedra at The Daily Wire:
“Tlaib: Just to make a note Mr. Chairman, just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them, does not mean they aren’t racist and it is insensitive that some would even say it’s the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber in this committee is alone racist in itself. Donald Trump is setting–
“Meadows: Mr. Chairman I ask that her words be taken down.
“Tlaib: I reclaim my time. Donald Trump is setting a precedent that the highest office can be—
“Meadows: Mr. Chairman. Mr. Chairman. Mr. Chairman the rules are clear.
“Tlaib: …cover up and hold on to business assets to break campaign finance laws and constitutional clauses what we have here, Mr. Chairman is criminal conduct and the pursuit of the highest public office by Mr. Cohen and individual one. I hope that the gravity of this situation hits everyone in this body, in Congress, and across this country. Thank You Mr. Chairman I yield the rest of my time.
“Meadows: Mr. Chairman I asked that her words, when she’s referring to an individual member of this body, be taken down and stricken from the record. I’m sure she didn’t intend to do this, but if anyone knows my record as it relates, it should be you Mr. Chairman.
“Cummings: Excuse me would you like to rephrase that statement Mrs. Tlaib?
“Tlaib: Thank You Mr. Chairman I can actually read it from here. Just to make a note Mr. Chairman that just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them, does not mean they aren’t racist and it is insensitive that someone would even say racist they say it is racist in itself and to use a black woman as a prop to move to prove it otherwise and I can submit this for the record. If a colleague is thinking that that’s what I’m saying, I’m just saying that’s what I believed to have happened and if as a person of color in this committee that’s how I felt at that moment and I wanted to express that. But I am not calling the gentleman, Mr. Meadows a racist… so I’m saying that in itself it is a racist act.
“Meadows: Well I hope not Mr. chairman because I need to be clear on this particular… Mr. Chairman.
“Cummings: Mr. Mr. Mr. Meadows wait a minute.
“Meadows: I’ve defended you and false—
“Cummings: Mr. Meadows, I’m the chair!
“Meadows: Yes sir, you are.
“Cummings: I will clear this up. Now Mrs. Tlaib, I want to make sure I understand, you did not, you were not intending to call Mr. Meadows a racist, is that right?
“Tlaib: No, Mr. Chairman I do not call Mr. Meadows a racist. I am trying as a person of color Mr. Chairman just to express myself and how I felt at that moment and so just for the record that’s what was my intention.
“Meadows: Mr. Chairman, there’s nothing more personal to me than my relationship, my nieces and nephews, are people of color, not many people know that. You know that Mr. Chairman and to indicate that I asked someone who is a personal friend of the Trump family, who has worked for him, who knows this particular individual, that she’s coming in to be a prop, it’s racist to suggest that I asked her to come in here for that reason.
“Mr. President, the president’s own person, she’s a family member and she loves this family, she came in because she felt like the President of the United States was getting falsely accused. And Mr. Chairman you are, you and I have a personal relationship that’s not based on color and to even go down this direction is wrong Mr. Chairman.”
I am thrilled that Meadows stood up to her and the chairman of the committee Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). It’s nice to see someone with a spine for a change call out these lying hypocrites and dare to go toe to toe with them.

Judge Orders Hillary Be Deposed For Judicial Watch-Benghazi Lawsuit
We are lucky to have Judicial Watch. This is the only organization that is fighting for justice. This woman shouldn’t be walking free for the crimes she’s committed. No American citizen would be able to get away with these crimes. The left truly believe they are above the law.
It would be nice to see a Clinton in Prison.
A federal judge on Monday ordered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to deliver a sworn deposition in response to a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch over her role in the Obama administration’s response to the 2012 terror attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.
U.S. District Court Royce Lamberth wrote in court filings that Clinton’s written answers to questions regarding the matter in a separate case were “incomplete” and “unhelpful” and demanded more information.
“As extensive as the existing record is, it does not sufficiently explain Secretary Clinton’s state of mind when she decided it would be an acceptable practice to set up and use a private server to conduct State Department business,” wrote Lamberth. “Simply put, her responses left many more questions than answers.”
BREAKING: Federal Court Orders Deposition of Hillary Clinton on Emails and Benghazi Attack Records. Rules prior testimony "left many more questions than answers." https://t.co/pvW4CD2oBS
— Tom Fitton (@TomFitton) March 2, 2020
The judge added: “Even years after the FBI investigation, the slow trickle of new emails has yet to be explained.”
Judicial Watch initiated the lawsuit in 2014 to uncover whether Clinton used her private email server to communicate about the Benghazi attack to skirt the Freedom of Information Act and whether the State Department reviewed records following an FOIA request from Judicial Watch. On September 11th, Ansar al-Sharia terrorists attacked the diplomatic compound, killing U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.
FLASHBACK August 2019 Court Grants NEW Discovery on Clinton Emails!
Via Judicial Watch:
We have won a significant victory in our pursuit of the truth about Hillary Clinton’s misuse of official email and the Deep State’s efforts to cover it up.
A federal judge granted us seven additional depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized email server.
Hillary Clinton and her former top aide and current lawyer Cheryl Mills were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).
The court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Mrs. Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery and ordered agency lawyers to respond to our questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue. The court granted all of our requested discovery but gave Clinton and Mills 30 days to file any opposition to the requests to question them in person under oath.
The new court-ordered discovery allows us to take testimony and gather evidence of Clinton’s handling of emails, specifically in an “after action memo” drafted by Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s senior advisor at State and White House liaison. The memo was created in December 2014 to memorialize the Clinton team’s processing of the Clinton emails. The discovery also asks when Justice and State Department attorneys learned about Clinton’s private email use; and what senior records-keeping officials at the State Department knew about Clinton’s emails and when they knew it.

VA Dems Introduce Bill To Take Pensions From Sheriffs Who Opposed Gun Control
Maybe it’s time we start taking pensions from all elected officials. Officials who are supposed to serve us. Not us serving them. These elected officials become millionaires in office. These people continue to take from the American people.
Democrat leadership is useless and dangerous. None of them should ever be allowed to have power. This is what they do with that power. The Founders warned us this would happen.
Dear American people..stop voting these people into office.
During CPAC, Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins told Breitbart News that Virginia Democrats are punishing sheriffs who continue to stand against gun control.
On December 7, 2019, Breitbart News reported Jenkins’ announcement that he was ready to “deputize thousands” to defend Second Amendment rights had the Virginia Democrats passed gun bans and other controls that were being pushed.
He made clear he equated his actions with calling forth the militia to defend freedom. He quoted Richard Henry Lee from 1788, saying, “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves…and include all men capable of bearing arms.”
Over the past weekend of CPAC, Jenkins told Breitbart News:
In early December I came out against the newly proposed legislation to restrict everything from ‘assault weapons,’ so-called ‘assault weapons,’ to ‘high capacity magazines…and said that if we’re going to take away weapons from law-abiding citizens I intend to swear in thousands of citizens as reserve deputy sheriffs so they can keep those weapons and be able to protect themselves and use them.
Jenkins said that he and other sheriffs who took a similar stand were threatened with having insurance coverage removed “from deputies and staff.” He said that sheriffs throughout the state were offered a $10,000 raise “if we would tuck tail and follow [the Democrats’] lead and stop the push-back.”
But Jenkins refused to cower, and said they responded by saying “they would take away the raises of the deputies if we didn’t stop.”
He said State Sen. Janet Howell (D) “introduced a bill for next session where she could remove the pension of sheriffs…next year for…saying that we won’t follow unconstitutional laws or that I would use my lawful powers as sheriff to swear in thousands of people as deputies.”
Virginia Sheriff Vows to ‘Deputize Thousands’ to Defend Gun Rights
Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins says he will “deputize thousands” to defend gun rights should incoming Democrats use their legislative positions to enact more gun control in Virginia.
On December 4, 2019, Jenkins used a Facebook post to thank the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors for standing with the dozens of other counties that have declared their intention to defend the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
But his joy was mixed with somber warnings:
Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions. “Red Flag” laws without due process will create enormous conflict as well.
America has more guns than citizens and murder has long been illegal. At best, the proposed gun restrictions will disarm or handicap our law-abiding in their defense and possibly cause a criminal to choose another tool for evil.
I remain very optimistic that our General Assembly will not pass the proposed bills. Obviously, if passed, there are many of us willing to challenge these laws through the courts. In addition, if necessary, I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms.”
In January, Sheriff Richard Vaughan vowed to defend the 2nd Amendment, also.
