Democrat Exposes Obama Cover-up To the World — It Wasn’t Trump’s Fault

Published

on

Sometimes in politics, it is better to keep your mouth shut than open it and insert your foot. One Democrat recently found that out the hard way after he really stepped in it regarding Obama and his practices while in office. Bummer dude.

Back in June, it was all over the media on how President Trump was such an evil meanie who loved to separate families at the border when they entered the U.S. illegally. You know… when they broke the law. Nothing was said on the fact that when you break the law in the U.S. and you go to prison, you don’t take your children with you… but details.

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) actually admitted that the Obama administration attempted to keep “quiet” about how many unaccompanied minors were crossing the border and that children were being held in detention centers. You see, Obama did the exact same thing, except the Democrats were cool with it then. There were less than ideal conditions involved.

But now that Trump is doing it, it’s being compared to Hitler. Cuellar inadvertantly pointed out it wasn’t Trump’s fault from the very beginning.

“There were large numbers of people coming in,” Cuellar said in an interview with CNN. “The Obama administration was trying to keep this quiet.” Do tell. Bet he wishes he hadn’t made that argument.

From the Washington Examiner:

“According to the Washington Post, nearly 70,000 unaccompanied minors were apprehended at the border in 2014.

“The comments come after the Department of Homeland Security confirmed Friday that nearly 2,000 minors were separated from guardians at the border since the Trump administration started enforcing a zero-tolerance policy to prosecute all illegal immigrants.

“DHS officials verified Friday that 1,995 minors were taken away from accompanying adults while attempting to enter the U.S. between ports of entry between April 19 and May 31.

“Minors who are split from their families as a result of the zero-tolerance policy will be housed by Health and Human Services.

“But Cuellar pointed out that not all children crossing the border are being separated because some come alone.

“It’s not a matter that every single child we have in those centers are being separated because some of them are coming in alone,” Cuellar said.

“He also pointed to immigrants bringing children across the border who are not their blood relatives in order to take advantage of U.S. immigration loopholes, which have since been rectified by Trump’s zero-tolerance policy.”

It’s true that some children come across that border alone. It’s also true that child traffickers bring children across the border. Any argument that Cuellar or anyone else on the left makes on the child-separation issue here just doesn’t hold water.

Children that come across alone or are separated from their parents or guardians are not neglected. They are put in a clean, comfortable environment where they have clothing, food, playtime, and studies until their status is determined. They also have discipline and chores. All of this drama over these children being separated from their parents at the border is political grandstanding. It’s not real concern for these children.

Listen to how Cueller used the issue for political gain:

“The current situation regarding how families are being separated at the border is unnecessary and avoidable. Therefore, today I sent a letter to President Trump asking him to join me and my colleagues at the border, to see firsthand the impact the process is having on innocent children.

“While I have great respect of the rule of law, I know that there is a way that we can process the families seeking legal relief as a family unit and avoid the current circumstances that result in the unnecessary separation of children from their parents.

“I remain confident that we can achieve a practical solution that minimizes trauma to innocent children while realizing our shared goal that only those truly deserving of legal relief will attain it.

“Given the severity of the situation, I hope that the President will accept my invitation so that we are able to find practical solutions to this important issue.’”

The whole brouhaha at the border has settled down now that the Democrats are busy being obstructionists on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Suddenly, the child-separation issue is not so important to the left. It was never much of an issue to begin with and Trump made sure as many families as possible were reunited. The same cannot be said for Barack Obama.

Newly Released Emails Confirm FBI Tried To Work Deal With State Dept To Minimize Hillary Email Scandal

Published

* By

The insanity never seems to end and once again the great Judicial Watch is doing Congress’ oversight job! It’s time arrests start happening.

Newly released FBI emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request confirm that James Comey’s FBI attempted to work out a quid pro quo deal with the Obama State Department to help cover up the Hillary Clinton private email server scandal just weeks before the 2016 election.

Back in October 15, 2016, Fox News first reported on the deal but full confirmation did not come until this week when the government watchdog group Judicial Watch released FBI communication related to the deal.

“FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a ‘quid pro quo’ between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News,” Herridge and Browne reported in 2016. “This is a flashing red light of potential criminality,” Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah) told Fox News at the time. “In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed,” he said.

Fox News reported on Monday that over two years later, the allegation that the FBI and State Department floated a “quid pro quo” deal has now been confirmed, and it originated with the FBI:

The trove of documents turned over by the FBI, in response to a lawsuit by the transparency group Judicial Watch, also included discussions by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page concerning a potential quid pro quo between the State Department and the FBI — in which the FBI would agree to effectively hide the fact that a Clinton email was classified in exchange for more legal attache positions that would benefit the FBI abroad, and allow them to send more agents to countries where the FBI’s access is ordinarily restricted.

The quid pro quo would have involved the FBI providing some other public reason for withholding the Clinton email from disclosure amid a Freedom of Information Act request, besides its classification level. There are no indications the proposed arrangement ever took place.

And, in the face of mounting criticism aimed at the FBI, the documents revealed that Comey quoted the 19th century poet Ralph Waldo Emerson by assuring his subordinates, “To be great is to be misunderstood.”

The FBI did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the released emails.

WATCH: Trump Slams Pelosi On Wall, Kneeling NFL Players In Pre-Super Bowl Interview

Published

on

In President Trump’s pre-Super Bowl interview with CBS News, he slammed Rep. Nancy Pelosi on the wall, as well as NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem. He was in fine form. He nailed Pelosi at the beginning of the interview and then took on the NFL and kneeling at the 15:40 mark. Trump also took extreme exception with those who are second-guessing his decision to pull American troops out of both Syria and Afghanistan.

In the interview, Trump also briefly discussed football. He said he would not push his son Barron to play the game, knowing the risk of long term brain injury. He also pointed out that soccer is becoming more popular as a sport.

But it’s his flaying of Pelosi that was riveting. President Trump referred to Nancy Pelosi as “very rigid” and intimated that he may sidestep Congress to get the wall built by declaring a national emergency. Rumor has it that an executive order is ready and awaiting his signature. At least Trump didn’t call Pelosi “frigid” although that certainly came to mind.

“I think that [Pelosi] was very rigid — which I would expect — but I think she is very bad for our country,” Trump told reporter Margaret Brennan. “She knows that you need a barrier. She knows that we need border security. She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it’s very bad politics because basically, she wants open borders. She doesn’t mind human trafficking or she wouldn’t do this.”

“She can keep playing her games, but we will win. Because we have a much better issue. On a political basis, what she’s doing is — I actually think it’s bad politics, but much more importantly it’s very bad for our country,” he stated.

“You know, there have been plenty of national emergencies called,” Trump explained. “And this really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers.”

Trump wasn’t anywhere near done. She “doesn’t mind human trafficking,” Trump added, torching Pelosi very nicely.

From The Daily Wire:

“As for the kneeling NFL players, Trump believes the recent boost in NFL ratings proves he was right that anti-racism protests were souring Americans on professional football. Trump also believes he’s made progress handling some NFL players’ complaints. “A lot of people in the NFL have been calling and thanking me,” he said, referring to his part in efforts to reform the criminal justice system and grant clemency to a number of federal prisoners serving long sentences for drug crimes.

“You have to respect our flag and our country. I want that as president and I’d want that as a citizen. And I have a very good relationship. I did them a big favor in negotiating the USMCA, which is basically the replacement to NAFTA, which is one of the worst trade deals ever made,” Trump said. “And Roger Goodell, this is a dispute that has gone on for years. Roger Goodell called me and he thanked me.”

“In a final interview, which aired just before the game, Trump touted his plan to withdraw American military forces from Syria and Afghanistan, noting that the United States’ commitment to the two countries won’t be dimmed by a change in troop presence.

“We’ll come back if we have to,” Trump said.

“We have very fast airplanes, we have very good cargo planes. We can come back very quickly, and I’m not leaving,” Trump added, hammering in the possibility that American troops could easily re-deploy to the region. “We have a base in Iraq and the base is a fantastic edifice. I mean I was there recently, and I couldn’t believe the money that was spent on these massive runways. And these — I’ve rarely seen anything like it. And it’s there. And we’ll be there. And frankly, we’re hitting the caliphate from Iraq and as we slowly withdraw from Syria.”‘

This isn’t the first time President Trump has given an interview before the Super Bowl. He’s done it a number of times now. His State of the Union Address this week promises surprises but will also touch on these issues.
