Say It Ain’t So, Joe

It has been reported that the president will pick his new FBI director.
Rumor is he will tap Joe Lieberman.
Joe Lieberman?
He has to pick a fossilized old former democrat-turned-independent-stiff?
This is the best man for the job?
He backed McCain over the Magic Negro in 2008.
He switched party affiliation from democrat to independent, even though he caucused with the dems. He could get away with this because, like many politicos who spend decades in DC, their reelection is almost automatic. The democrats dislike him, the GOP elite love him.
That was proven with the Obamacare votes. They all just come with different price tags.
I do not regret voting for Trump, he’s done some good things. But there are a lot of things he does that are simply head scratching. He is who he is and that will never change.

Trump ‘very close’ to picking new FBI chief, leaning toward Lieberman
Lieberman would be an unusual pick for the job — past FBI chiefs have either worked at the bureau or served as a federal judge or prosecutor. He was attorney general of Connecticut before being elected to the Senate in 1988.
The former Democratic vice presidential nominee currently works at the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres in New York – the same firm as Trump’s attorney Marc Kasowitz.

Senate Democrats say ‘hell no’ to Trump’s choice of Joe Lieberman for FBI Director
According to Politico, if Trump thought that Lieberman would be a choice welcomed by Democrats, he got it squarely wrong. Lieberman is not popular among his former Senate colleagues. From a series of policy defections on key issues to Lieberman’s decision to run as an independent in Connecticut after he lost the Democratic primary to challenger Ned Lamont in 2006, the former senator made many enemies among his own caucus.
Furthermore, critics of Trump’s decision stress that the role of FBI director should be filled by someone who isn’t a politician. Lieberman was Al Gore’s vice presidential running mate in 2000 and ran for president himself in 2004.

McCain To Democrats Criticizing Lieberman Over FBI Position: He Has More Experience Than All My Dem Colleagues, So Screw Them
In 2008, there were rumors circulating that Lieberman could be picked as McCain’s running mate. McCain reportedly wanted to make that happen. It didn’t, though Lieberman did address the Republican National Convention that year. He also endorsed McCain for president, which caused his Democratic colleagues, with whom he caucused with, some heartburn.

    George Soros Still Quietly Buying District Attorneys’ Seats

    George Soros has all but bought another district attorney’s seat.

    The left-wing billionaire turned the Philadelphia district attorney’s race on its head by giving $1.45 million to fund a super PAC in support of his preferred candidate, Larry Krasner. Krasner, a progressive lawyer who has never worked as a prosecutor, sailed to an easy victory in the Democratic primary on Tuesday. Because Philadelphia is a Democratic stronghold, Krasner’s primary victory all but guarantees him to win the general election in November.
    Soros, a funder of Black Lives Matter, is a staunch advocate for reforming policing methods and softening drug laws. Installing like-minded district attorneys allows Soros the opportunity to influence law enforcement policies around the country.

    Report: GOP Lawmakers Turning on Donald Trump Despite 84% Republican Voter Approval

    During the House’s weeklong recess, Sanford found that the controversy surrounding Trump ‘is very much hot and bright, and of great concern with regard to the public I talk to back home,’ even in his conservative district.”

    “And as more Republicans begin to face such political pressure, Sanford mused, merely expressing worry might not cut it.”

    “You get a lot of comments where people say, ‘I hear you that you’re concerned — now what are you going to do about it?’” Sanford said. “And I think that’s going to increasingly be the question asked of Republicans.”

    If Dems Think They Can Impeach President Trump for Nothing after He Won 30 States in 2016 They Are Sadly Mistaken

    In spite of having no grounds for impeachment, the liberals are calling for it. Their calls for Trump’s impeachment are based on unsupported allegations that the President colluded with Russia to steal the election from Democrat Hillary Clinton. (What a terribly sad joke!) The Democrats’ arguments are very weak. Even Democrat attorney Alan Dershowitz states that he sees no evidence of collusion and if there was, it would not be a crime.

    Liberal Democrats and their MSM somehow forget that Hillary Clinton called President-elect Trump on election night and conceded:


    • GOP Lawmakers Turning on Donald Trump…

      Silly answer: Uh-oh! Looks like an early night for a Clinton win. Trump has no path to winning the Presidency.

      Not-so-silly answer: Take those GOP lawmakers’ names – there will be primaries.

        So far as I can figure, they really believe that any and all criticism of Trump is “speaking truth to power”, while any criticism of Hillary is simply eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil.

    Corrine Brown’s Fraud Laid Out in Photographs by Jacksonville TV Station

    Pictures include Brown and Debbie Wasserman Schultz with $750 cake paid for by bogus charity

    A Jacksonville, Fla. news station obtained photographic evidence from the trial of recently convicted former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown (Fla.) that showed the extent of her lavish living that was funded by a bogus charity.

    Brown was found guilty of wire fraud and tax evasion on May 11. The charges stemmed from a phony charity, One Door for Education, that Brown used to enrich herself. The Washington Free Beacon reported that more than $800,000 was deposited into the sham foundation, but only $1,200 of that money went to charity

    Among the evidence obtained was a picture of a birthday cake for Brown’s daughter that cost the charity $750. The evidence file also includes pictures at events funded by the charity of dignitaries like Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), a longtime Florida congresswoman and former chair of the Democratic National Committee

    Former Obama Aides Set Table for Donald Trump Foreign Trip Disaster

    As President Donald Trump prepares to take off on his first trip overseas as president, former President Obama’s officials are already setting the narrative of failure.
    “Trump is substantively unprepared for high-stakes, 9-day foreign trip, but isn’t bringing ANY actual NSC experts (SDs or Ds) on AF1 to brief,” Colin Kahl, former deputy assistant to President Obama, wrote on Twitter.

    “No way. Seriously?” Susan Rice, Obama’s former national security adviser, snarked back.


    • chrissythehyphenated

      You mean like how the Obamas went to see the Queen of England without anyone to teach them protocol? Even I know you don’t touch her, but Michelle was all handsy, so clearly she didn’t know. Or knew but didn’t care.

      Then there was that time Hillary went to see the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe and asked the priest, “Who painted it?”

    Artist Trolls Maxine Waters Because of Her Out-of-District Mansion

    If you’re going to have a gigantic mansion, make sure it’s at least located in your district.

    Maxine Waters does not live in the district she represents in Congress, which caused one of her political rivals, Republican Omar Navarro, to hold a press conference in front of her mansion. Inexplicably, he was accompanied by a mariachi band (hey, this is 2017; nothing in politics surprises me anymore.)

    Waters has been on the forefront of the Impeach Trump movement, though she sometimes was erratic at best. Navarro said that his opponent, “obviously lives outside the district, and that’s a representation of who she is and who she’s serving. She’s not representing the interests of her own district… People are homeless in Los Angeles, while this person right here [gestures to Waters’ home] is out of touch with what’s going on in society.”

    The moral of the story? If you’re going to look like a wealthy, out-of-touch politician by having a gigantic mansion, make sure that mansion is at least located in your district.

    Black Students At UCLA Issue Ultimatum Demanding $40 Million, Free Housing And ‘Safe Spaces’

    The Afrikan [sic] Student Union at the University of California has issued a list of demands– which include a $40 million endowment, their own “safe spaces” on campus, and mandatory “cultural awareness training” for all students — as compensation for what they call racially insensitive incidents. The demands, listed in an open letter, cite different “racial attacks” on campus.

    “Black students at UCLA are consistently made the targets of racist attacks by fellow students, faculty, and administration,” the Afrikan Student Union writes in their eight-point ultimatum. “Unfortunately, on April 30, 2017, a photo was released depicting the USAC [student government] President holding gang signs.”

    Beautiful Melania Trump Won’t Wear Head Scarf in Saudi Arabia

    While the choice of the first country to be visited by Trump as America’s 45th president has been widely discussed in the media, a question has arisen whether there is a chance to see the US president’s wife covered in a traditionally strict Muslim attire.

    “We welcome any style in clothing,” Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir told the media on Thursday, as cited by RIA Novosti.
