Lindsey Graham Explodes On Dems, Ignites Massive Senate Fight At Kavanaugh Hearing

Published

on

Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday on the California professor’s sexual assault allegations against the judge.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed during a house party in Maryland in the early 1980s, attempting to remove her clothes and putting his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. At the time of the alleged incident, Ford was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17, she said, adding that Kavanaugh was drunk.

“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” Ford said. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied these claims, calling them “totally false and outrageous.”

“We’re talking about an allegation of sexual assault. I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone. I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years there after,” Kavanaugh said in an interview with Fox News.

Sen. Lindsey Graham accused the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee and her colleagues for putting on an “unethical sham” during the Supreme Court confirmation hearing Thursday.

The South Carolina Republican said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, had already referred Christine Blasey Ford to an attorney when she met privately with Brett Kavanaugh more than a month ago as part of the confirmation process.

Ms. Feinstein did not ask the judge about the alleged incident then or during his hearings earlier this month.

She released the information less than two weeks ago once Ms. Blasey Ford’s complaint was leaked to the press. Ms. Blasey Ford alleged Judge Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her more than 36 years ago when they were in high school.

Mr. Graham suggested Democrats delayed the timeline in hopes to hold the Supreme Court seat open ahead of the midterms.

“Boy, ya’ll want power. I hope you never get it,” Mr. Graham told the Democrats. “If you really wanted to know the truth, you wouldn’t have done what you did to this guy.”

Ms. Blasey Ford first contacted Ms. Feinstein about the accusation July 30.

Mr. Graham said Ms. Blasey Ford is as much of a “victim” as Judge Kavanaugh has been throughout the process.

“When it comes to this, if you’re looking for a fair process, you came to the wrong town at the wrong time my friend,” he told the judge.

Mr. Graham said he will be voting for Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

President Trump’s press secretary Sarah Sanders praised Mr. Graham on Twitter.

[email protected] has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined. God bless him,” she said.

The nominee has repeatedly denied any sexual misconduct.

“I never had any sexual or physical encounter with Dr. Ford. I never attended a gathering like the one Dr. Forddescribes in her allegation,” Judge Kavanaugh told the committee. “I’ve never assaulted Dr. Ford or anyone.”

Trump: ‘Hard To Believe’ Obama Didn’t Know What FBI Was Up To In 2016

Published

on

President Trump said Wednesday that “it would certainly be hard to believe” that former President Barack Obama was unaware of what the FBI was up to in 2016. Well, of course, he knew. In fact, I would wager he orchestrated all of it. Obama is not dumb or incompetent. I’m almost certain he was pulling the strings and running the war room here.

Attorney General William Barr held a press conference today as the lightly redacted Mueller report was released. He put to rest the conspiracy theories and quelled the rabid Trump hatred by pointing out there was no collusion with the Russians or obstruction of justice. Trump tweeted out, “Game Over!” Indeed, it should be but the left will never give up this bone.

Trump praised Attorney General William Barr, saying “he’s grabbed it by the horn.” It would certainly seem that he has. The guy is fearless. Now, the left is calling for Mueller to have to testify over all this. No matter what they do it won’t change the fact there is no there-there and they are not going to get any dirt on Trump. Give it a rest already. Two years and millions of dollars later, they have nada.

From The Daily Caller:

“The conversation turned to several former Obama-era officials, most of whom are likely to be investigated in the coming months as Barr has pledged, and Trump touted the fact that he had called attention to them as “one of my great achievements, actually.”

“The president also had strong opinions when it came to whether or not Obama was aware of what the FBI was doing. “How is it possible that he didn’t know?” he asked. “I mean, we’re talking about pervasive, horrible things that were happening.”

“It would certainly be hard to believe that he didn’t know what was going on,” Trump concluded.”

That is the understatement of the century.

“Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era [Department of Justice] and FBI must answer for their misdeeds and the scam that they perpetrated against the American people. Justice will be served,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said. “President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again. Now the tables have turned, and it’s time to investigate the liars who instigated this sham investigation into President Trump, motivated by political retribution and based on no evidence whatsoever.”

From the Washington Examiner:

“That theme — “turning the tables” on the Democrats — or some variation of it, was what the Trump campaign ran with immediately after Attorney General William Barr delivered the Mueller report to Congress. Team Trump issued a fresh campaign video with that language as it replayed a series of prominent Democrats insisting over the course of the nearly two-year-long Mueller investigation that the president was guilty of collusion.

“Another staple of the campaign’s messaging: “Investigate the investigators.” The Republican National Committee, working in tandem with Trump 2020, was using similar language in series of press releases, as it emphasized that Russian meddling occurred while Barack Obama was president.

“Bottom line: Not only did Mueller confirm that there was no collusion, we also learned the full extent of how much the Obama administration failed to act while Russia messed with America’s electoral process,” read a missive from RNC rapid response director Steve Guest.”

Trump’s 2020 campaign will no doubt use the Mueller report as a political weapon and at this point, it is one of many that the Democrats will gleefully bludgeon themselves to death with in 2020. Forget hoisting yourself by your petard… these morons are TRYING to commit political suicide. It’s glorious to watch. Popcorn-worthy incompetence and radicalism even.

There is no doubt in my mind that the hunters are about to become the hunted here. I suggest they start with Barack Obama because he knew everything that went on and nothing happened during his administration without his blessing.

REPORT: HUD To Crackdown On Illegals Taking Advantage Of Public Housing

Published

on

Trump is a master at timing. His administration is proposing a new rule to try to block some 32,000 illegal immigrant-led families from claiming public housing assistance, saying it’s unfair to hundreds of thousands of Americans who are stuck on waiting lists. And it is. This is long overdue and I applaud Ben Carson and President Trump on this move.

HUD let Congress know this week that it intends to implement the new rule, kicking off a schedule of publication and notice and comment that could have the plan finalized later this summer. That’s if the darned Democrats don’t get in the way again… which they will. The plan would scrap Clinton-era regulations that allowed illegal immigrants to sign up for assistance without having to disclose their status.

From the Washington Times:

“Under the new Trump rules, not only would the leaseholder using public housing have to be an eligible U.S. person, but the government would verify all applicants through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, a federal system that’s used to weed illegal immigrants out of other welfare programs.

“Those already getting HUD assistance would have to go through a new verification, though it would be over a period of time and wouldn’t all come at once.

“We’ve got our own people to house and need to take care of our citizens,” an administration official told The Washington Times. “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime.”

“Illegal immigrants’ access to taxpayer-funded welfare and other benefit programs has long been controversial.

“It was considered a non-starter for Democrats when they wrote Obamacare a decade ago, and they excluded illegal immigrants from the health law. But the party’s attitude has changed and now some Democrats are pushing to expand the 2010 law to include unauthorized migrants.

“Polling, though, suggests Americans remain opposed to public benefits flowing to illegal immigrants, and President Trump has suggested it’s time to crack down on loopholes and interpretations that have allowed them to do so.

“In the case of Section 8 housing assistance, there are competing laws that have created confusion.

“In 2017 the HUD inspector general investigated illegal immigrants in New York who were using public housing under a special program for people with HIV or AIDS, and found that the government had never clearly stated whether housing was a federal public benefit subject to a 1996 ban for unauthorized migrants.

“Further complicating matters, Clinton-era rules specifically allowed “mixed” immigration status families to gain housing benefits. As long as one person in the home is an eligible U.S. resident, a family can qualify. The eligible person doesn’t need to be the head of the household, and could even be a minor child.

“The government created a system that allows people to apply for housing assistance as “non-contending,” meaning they decline to say whether they were legally in the country. Benefits are supposed to be adjusted on a pro-rated basis to account for those non-contenders.”

The immigrant-rights activists on the left are lining up to oppose this rule as I write this. They claim that penalizing mixed-status families means hurting the legal residents in those families, who are often young children. Too bad, they are here illegally. If they want to partake of American benefits, let them become legal immigrants first, not second. This same argument is being used to debate tax credits that, while claimed on behalf of citizen children, are paid to illegal immigrant parents.

Give the GOP credit… they’ve done their best to tighten these tax rules and regulations but the obstructionist Democrats have stopped them at every turn.

Trump’s administration is making the argument that lengthy backlogs for housing assistance make the new HUD proposal an obvious change. There are millions of people waiting on that list. One in four families who would qualify for housing assistance actually get the benefit right now. Most of those waiting for HUD help are likely poor seniors or people living with a disability. These people are being hurt by those that don’t belong here legally.

From The Daily Caller:

“HUD intends to roll out a proposal over the next few weeks that prohibits any illegal immigrant from residing in subsidized housing, even if they are not the direct recipient of the benefit. HUD currently estimates that tens of thousands of HUD-assisted households are headed by non-citizens.

“Families who are caught gaming the system by allowing illegal immigrants to stay with them either have to comply with the new rule or they will be forced to move out of their residence.

“Households will be screened through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or “SAVE,” program.

“An administration official told the Caller that this is a continuation of the president’s “America First” policies.”

Did you know that the average waiting time to get housing assistance in the US is now 26 months? That’s outrageous. In progressive enclaves such as Los Angeles, you can wait more than four years. All because of illegal immigrants being allowed to break our laws.

Even Cher took notice of the idiocy here in a tweet she put out this week: “I understand helping struggling immigrants,” she said, “but my city (Los Angeles) isn’t taking care of its own.” She pointed out the 50,000 citizens that are living on the streets and who are below the poverty line and go hungry. Many are veterans who served their country only to have no place to return to and no help was forthcoming. They should have just come across the border. “If my state can’t take care of its own … how can it take care of more,” Cher wondered. Good question.

Trump found himself in agreement with Cher for the first time. “This proposal gets to the whole point Cher was making,” an administration official told The Times. Yes, it does. Faster, faster pussycat.
