Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has the Democrats in a virtual panic. Graham shredded Democrats during the Kavanaugh hearings saying they used to be his friends and that all they care about now is hurting Trump, stalling Kavanaugh’s confirmation and the 2020 election. But if they thought that was a one-off for Lindsey, they were sadly mistaken.
Graham is now calling for an investigation into the Senate Judiciary Committee’s management of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations, accusing Democrats of handling her accusations so as to inflict maximum damage on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He’s right of course. This was politically choreographed to the hilt.
Lindsey Graham stands a very good chance of becoming the chair of the Judiciary Committee in January if Chuck Grassley steps aside and Republicans retain control of the Senate. And Graham is saying he won’t forget this betrayal by the Democrats. I believe him. He’ll make sure a full-scale probe into the left’s smears against Kavanaugh blows up all over the Democrats.
“The FBI will do a supplemental background investigation, then I’m going to call for an investigation of what happened in this committee,” Graham told George Stephanopoulos on ABC News. “Who betrayed Dr. Ford’s trust? Who in Feinstein’s office recommended Katz as a lawyer? Why did Ms. Ford not know that the committee was willing to go to California?”
“We’re going to do a wholesale, full-scale investigation of what I think was a despicable process to deter it from happening again,” Graham added. If I were the Democrats I’d take that to heart, but of course, they won’t. I think Lindsey is dead serious about this. Big surprises come in little packages and this one is about to deliver a possibly fatal political blow to the Democrats.
Senator Tom Cotton, an Arkansas Republican, also called for an investigation of Democrats, for “the orchestrated smear campaign of character assassination they’ve run against Judge Kavanaugh.” “Dianne Feinstein and her staff are going to face an investigation for why they leaked that,” Cotton said of Ford’s letter on CBS’ Face the Nation.
Cotton also joined Graham in questioning whether Ford’s lawyers had withheld information from her, such as the Judiciary Committee’s offer to interview her in her home state of California. He said they should face a professional-misconduct investigation from the D.C. bar.
From The Daily Caller:
“During Thursday’s hearing, Blasey Ford testified that she did not consent to the release of a letter conveying her allegations, which was in the possession of her congresswoman, Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo, and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, raising the prospect that committee Democrats leaked it to the press in some capacity. Blasey Ford herself was in contact with a Washington Post reporter, though other outlets reported on the letter’s existence before a definitive account of the allegations appeared in WaPo on Sept. 16.
“She also testified that Feinstein’s office helped her retain counsel and that she was unaware the committee was willing to question her near her home in California, as she may have preferred.
“Debra Katz, Lisa Banks, and Michael Bromwich are representing Blasey Ford.
“The FBI is currently investigating Blasey Ford’s claims, as well as those of Deborah Ramirez, who accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her while she was drunk and incapacitated. The probe will conclude no later than Friday.”
From the Washington Examiner:
“President Trump mocked Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, at a rally in West Virginia on Saturday for saying last week her staff did not leak a confidential letter Ford sent her local congresswoman, Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., in July accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault in the 1980s when they were in high school.
“Ryan Grim, the journalist from the Intercept who first reported on the letter, said on Twitter last week that he did not receive it from Feinstein’s staff.
“Trump also said he hoped an FBI probe into Ford’s claims, which will delay the Senate’s consideration of Kavanaugh’s confirmation by a week, uncovers who leaked the letter to the press.”
Graham has acknowledged Feinstein’s denial of leaking but he said obviously whoever leaked it had a political motive. “All I can tell you is it came from somebody with a political motive,” Graham said. “No friend would do this to Dr. Ford.” Chances are that Feinstein had some low-level lackey leak it.
Graham also appeared on Fox with Maria Bartiromo to make the same points. If you had asked me a couple of months ago if the Republican to lead the charge against the Dems would be Lindsey Graham, I would have laughed out loud. But darn if it isn’t him after all. Nice to see a Republican find his spine and take it to the Democrats over Kavanaugh. I can count those men pretty much on my fingers.
The FBI is currently investigating Blasey Ford’s claims, as well as those of Deborah Ramirez, who accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her while she was drunk and incapacitated. The probe will conclude no later than Friday. But that shouldn’t end there… the FBI should look into Ford and as Graham wants, into how the letter was leaked as well. Let’s dig a little shall we? Who knows what we’ll find.

Lindsey Graham tells @GStephanopoulos he's going to call for an investigation into "a despicable process," including "who in Feinstein's office" referred Christine Blasey Ford to her attorney Debra Katz and "who betrayed Dr. Ford's trust" https://t.co/plKvncoC3D #ThisWeek pic.twitter.com/cR1ZLelPQF

Pelosi, Hoyer Take Impeachment Off The Table, Dems Crushed
Get used to it, Democrats. President Trump ain’t going anywhere. Your dreams are ruined!
The top two Democrats in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer , have called a time out on impeaching President Donald Trump, crushing the dreams of thousands of progressive activists and many of their House colleagues.
Pelosi announced the decision to forgo instituting impeachment proceedings on a call with House leaders Tuesday morning telling 170 Democratic Members of Congress on an insane, 90-minute conference call, that the House will instead focus on investigating the President and let the American people decide what to believe in November of 2020.
Fox News reports that Pelosi told her colleagues that “we have to save our democracy.”
“This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans. It’s about saving our democracy. If it is what we need to do to honor our responsibility to the Constitution – if that’s the place the facts take us, that’s the place we have to go,” she added, before claiming that the “facts” simply don’t point to removing the President from office quite yet — but that further investigation could lead there.
“We don’t have to go to articles of impeachment to obtain the facts, the presentation of facts.”
In a letter released ahead of the call, Pelosi got into greater detail.
“While our views range from proceeding to investigate the findings of the Mueller report or proceeding directly to impeachment, we all firmly agree that we should proceed down a path of finding the truth,” Pelosi wrote to Democratic Members. “It is also important to know that the facts regarding holding the president accountable can be gained outside of impeachment hearings.”
“Whether currently indictable or not,” she added, “it is clear that the president has, at a minimum, engaged in highly unethical and unscrupulous behavior which does not bring honor to the office he holds.”
In other words, Pelosi plans on spending the next eighteen months directing multiple investigations into Trump, his finances, his businesses, and his White House, in the hopes that the public impact of such probes will seriously injure the President, giving Democrats an advantage in the 2020 election.
Dems reacted on Twitter:

This is unbelievably disappointing. Even if you don't ultimately pursue impeachment proceedings, why on Earth would you say this today?
Part of the American people making a judgment in 2020 requires a full account of the President's criminality and abuse of power. https://t.co/DB634jA2Fq

So now political leaders get to break whatever laws they want in order to boost their power and it's all good b/c if the voters get mad they can vote against them afterwards.
If only there were hundreds of years of historical precedent on what happens right after that. https://t.co/lpJmky9LsL

Like one patriot wrote:
“I say go for it Nancy. Go ahead, tie up our nation for another 18 months of completely baseless, ridiculous inquiries and accusations. Watch how the American people vote in 2020 when they get so sick of all of the Democratic Party antics. Let’s have another 18 months of keeping our country in a state of suspended animation waiting for the next asinine idea you idiots are going to come up with. Do it Nancy do it. More votes in 2020 for us.”
The majority of Americans are sick & tired of the Democrat party. Imagine how they are going to react when President Trump wins in 2020. I wonder how many liberals are going to kill themselves over this. They still can’t get over 2016… and they for sure won’t be able to deal with life after 2020.
Keep it up, Democrats. This ain’t going to help you in the end. Your party is going down faster than Bill Clinton’s pants.

Elizabeth Warren Says Use Taxpayer Money To Pay Student Debt – $1.25 TRILLION Cost
If Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is a real economist, I’ll eat my hat. The woman is nothing more than an economically illiterate Marxist. She’s now proposing using taxpayer money to “cancel” hundreds of billions of dollars in student-loan debt and offer debt-free college for millions more, which would cost $1.25 trillion over the next decade.
I’m sure young people will mostly support this move, but ask yourself… where does the money come from to pay off these loans? If you said a wealth tax you get a cookie. She intends to rob the rich to pay off student loans. Economically speaking, that is moronic.
It is successful and rich business owners who provide jobs for everyone else. Your degree won’t mean much if you can’t find work. Margaret Thatcher once said that “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually, you run out of other people’s money.” She was more right than she ever knew.
Warren wrote a blog post on the leftist Medium site where she stated that the “huge student loan debt burden” is “crushing millions of families and acting as an anchor on our economy. It’s reducing homeownership rates. It’s leading fewer people to start businesses. It’s forcing students to drop out of school before getting a degree. It’s a problem for all of us.”
From The Daily Wire, here is some of Warren’s drivel:
“The first step in addressing this crisis is to deal head-on with the outstanding debt that is weighing down millions of families and should never have been required in the first place. That’s why I’m calling for something truly transformational — the cancellation of up to $50,000 in student loan debt for 42 million Americans.
“My plan for broad student debt cancellation will:
“Cancel debt for more than 95% of the nearly 45 million Americans with student loan debt;
“Wipeout student loan debt entirely for more than 75% of the Americans with that debt;
“Substantially increase wealth for Black and Latinx families and reduce both the Black-White and Latinx-White wealth gaps; and
“Provide an enormous middle-class stimulus that will boost economic growth, increase home purchases, and fuel a new wave of small business formation.”
Do I get a refund for having chosen a cheaper public university so I wouldn't be riddled with a ton of debt?
Seriously this is stupid – everyone knows what they're borrowing when they go through the process and I want no part in paying off everyone else's student loans. https://t.co/aAadWHUZ8i
— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) April 22, 2019
This is money for nothing, chicks for free blather. It would destroy the middle-class and she knows it. You can’t afford to buy a home if all your income is going out in taxes to pay for other people’s education. I worked hard and paid off my loans and I don’t want to pay for others who want a free ride.
“Do I get a refund for having chosen a cheaper public university so I wouldn’t be riddled with a ton of debt?” wrote Josh Jordan. “Seriously this is stupid – everyone knows what they’re borrowing when they go through the process and I want no part in paying off everyone else’s student loans.”
“You better retro that and pay back all of us who diligently paid our loans back in full if you pull this bull—-,” wrote a Twitter user.
“Experts estimate my debt cancellation plan creates a one-time cost to the government of $640 billion. The Universal Free College program brings the total cost of the program to roughly $1.25 trillion over ten years,” Warren wrote. She would print money to cover the cost starting an economic domino effect that will leave us in a Weimer-esque Republic. The sheer idiocy of this proposal stuns me.
But I don't wanna pay for other people's college or their college debts. https://t.co/yvoK9eoU1E

Warren says “the actual costs of these new ideas are likely to be even less than that,” and claims “we can fully cover the cost of these ideas with revenue from my Ultra-Millionaire Tax on the wealthiest 75,000 families in the country — those with fortunes of $50 million or more.” She is insane. Stripping the wealth from Americans like that is a suicide march off a Marxist cliff.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the plan would entail “an annual 2% levy on wealth above $50 million and an additional 1% tax on wealth above $1 billion.” You do know that most of the wealthy would find a way around that theft, right? In the end, it would be the middle-class paying for all this and the burden would crush us.
Under her plan, borrowers with a household income under $100,000 would have $50,000 of their student debt canceled. Borrowers with an income between $150,000 and $250,000 would be eligible for some debt cancellation, though not the full $50,000, and borrowers earning $250,000 or more wouldn’t have any of their debt canceled.
Warren, who is running for president in 2020 and stands no chance of being elected, also proposes using $50 billion in taxpayer funds for historically black colleges and universities, known as HBCUs. She wants to “prohibit public colleges from considering citizenship status” when making admissions decisions. So throw the borders open and educate the world while stealing from Peter to pay Paul. Galt’s Gulch is looking better and better if the leftists come back into power.
In addition, Warren wants to phase out federal money that now goes to for-profit schools. “After an appropriate transition period, ban for-profit colleges from receiving any federal dollars (including military benefits and federal student loans), so they can no longer use taxpayer dollars to enrich themselves while targeting lower-income students, servicemembers, and students of color and leaving them saddled with debt,” she wrote. Instead, she will saddle all of America with debt and ‘news flash!’… we’re already beyond broke. This would also begin to bring all colleges under the purvue of the federal government. Not good.
Student loan debt has more than doubled over the last 10 years to $1.5 trillion, and some economic experts say that it is driving the declining homeownership rates among young adults. Get a job, pay off your debt and stop whining. If you can’t pay it off, don’t take the loans. Go into business for yourself. Start acting more like an entrepreneurial American and less like a European Marxist weenie.
