Rod Rosenstein, COME ON DOWN!

Today derp state honcho Rod Rosenstein will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the RUSSIA hoax of which he was an integral part. After years of clap trap, Senator Lyndsey Graham (D-S.C.) got off his media seeking ass and finally decided to hold hearings on this travesty. It’s safe now for him because brave and courageous men like Rick Grenell and ladies like Sidney Powell did some heavy lifting. He’s also up for re-election.

Rosenstein will testify about “new revelations contained in the Horowitz report concerning the FISA warrant applications and other matters,” said Graham. “This will be the first in a series of oversight hearings regarding all things Crossfire Hurricane and the Mueller investigation.”

Just to remind you: Rosenstein signed a fraudulent FISA warrant, Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel, Rosenstein expanded Mueller’s investigation to include other Trump campaign officials and Rosenstein wanted to pull a 25th amendment on President Trump. Just to name a few.

The hearing starts at 10am, you can watch online. I know I will be watching.

Elliot Engel: “If I didn’t have a primary, I wouldn’t care.”

Ladies and Gentlemen, there it is, there.it.is. Most of these lefty politicians do not care about George Floyd. Caught on a hot mic, the New York Democrat said “If I didn’t have a primary, I wouldn’t care,” the New York Democrat told Ruben Diaz Jr., the Bronx borough president, as he asked for time to speak at a news conference on local vandalism.

He released a statement later “demsplaining” his moment of candor. “In the context of running for reelection, I thought it was important for people to know where I stand, that’s why I asked to speak,” Engel said in his statement. “I would not have tried to impose on the Borough President if I didn’t think it was important.”

Please. This statement is true of most of the elected officials who don’t care about issues of public concern unless it’s close to election time.

Schumer tried to introduce resolution condemning Trump’s visit to St. John, McConnell blocked it

On Tuesday, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-New York) tried to introduce a measure in the Senate to condemn President Trump for clearing out “protestors” in Lafayette Square before he walked to the St. John’s Church. The church had been set on fire the night before as terrorists attacked streets across America. While America is burning and rioters are terrorizing the streets, Schumer did not lose sight of his mission to trash the president.

“Congress condemns the president of the United States for ordering federal officers to use gas and rubber bullets against the Americans who were peaceably protesting in Lafayette Square,” the Schumer resolution read.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also introduced a measure but it was blocked by Schumer. McConnell’s resolution read: the U.S. “cannot fully realize the constitutional promise of equal protection and equal justice under the law until unjust police violence against black Americans has been further addressed.” It also stated that “the legitimate grievances of peaceful protesters may be heard and considered” and Americans had no constitutional right to loot, burn or attack police officers.

Can you spot the difference in the resolutions? I knew you could.

Kellyanne Conway, senior adviser to the president spoke to Harris Faulkner and explained,

 It’s amazing the senior senator from New York won’t look at his own back yard. You have Governor Cuomo criticizing the NYPD. Everybody has seen what’s going on, to see the most densely populated city fall victim to violence and looting and rioting and not peaceful protesting necessarily. I would just say a couple of things, Harris. One is George Floyd, who was murdered in plain sight for all of us to see and everybody should have watched all eight minutes and 49 seconds of that video. They should see this man was murdered in cold blood for all to see, and that his family is calling for peace. They’re calling for protests but peace. They are saying please don’t destroy your cities and the rioting, looting. That’s what’s going on in Chuck Schumer’s New York. He’s diverting attention second guessing what I suppose law enforcement decided to do based on what happened the night before in Washington D.C. and Lafayette Park, which was to expand the perimeter. I understand they expanded from H Street to I Street. We had a church set on fire, store fronts, restaurants that were about to reopen, harris, after almost three months of being closed because of the coronavirus just about to open. They invested money in new structures, new social distancing policies to get their feedback on the ground at these restaurants and these mom and pop stores only to have them destroyed. I walked around yesterday. I was on my way home. I saw people putting up ply wood on their businesses. You can see this across the country. Nobody wants that. So Chuck Schumer needs to look no further than his own New York and give some help to that city.

And more importantly, Kellyanne address the current peacocking and exhibitionism of Obama and Biden on the issue: “12 years ago, March 18, 2008, you had then candidate Barack Obama give a race speech in Philadelphia. Today 12 years later, Joe Biden said that he’s going to go back and focus on institutional racism. Joe, you’ve been here 40 years. What do you mean you’re going to do it now?” Right on.
