Democrats win the Justice Department lottery
It is amazing how so many government officials under investigation conveniently lose or destroy things that would be helpful to determine guilt.
Robert Mueller’s office wiped information off Lisa Page’s and Peter Strzok’s phones when they obviously knew that Congress and others would like to see the messages. I am sure that Mueller would be congenial if his targets wiped off stuff he wanted to see and said, Don’t worry! There was nothing important to see.
Lois Lerner’s computer conveniently crashed when she was being looked at for violating first amendment rights of Obama opponents.
Hillary’s computer was completely wiped clean, but she didn’t have to worry because she knew that Comey was there and would forgive Hillary’s violations of the law by saying essentially that she wasn’t smart enough to follow the law so she didn’t have to.
It is well known that Hillary handed out access for money, but almost six years after she left office, I still haven’t see any prosecution.
Not only did Obama sell access and jobs for donations, but his administration had multiple slush funds for political purposes and to reward supporters. Where are the prosecutors and investigative reporters?
Meanwhile, Trump is being continuously investigated while Obama continues to say there were no scandals or prosecutions while he was in. It helps to have a complicit Justice Department and media.
Maybe Trump should have set up a war room with campaign staffers and campaign money and hired private eyes to destroy the women who accused Bill Clinton, as Hillary did, instead of paying them off quietly with private funds, as Trump did. Then the media, Democrats, and the Justice Department would say it’s OK and support him, as they did the Clintons for decades. Is my assumption correct?
Workers Stage Rally At Amazon Warehouse In Shakopee
During the heart of the holiday season, Somali Amazon workers staged a protest and rally against the company they say is not responding to community demands. Joining them Friday evening at an Amazon warehouse in Shakopee will be U.S. Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar, who’s the first Somali-American and one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress.
After meeting twice with Amazon management, members of its East African workforce say they were forced to stage this rally.
What they want are safe jobs and respect for Amazon’s majority East African workforce — 60 percent of Amazon’s 3,000 workers in the area are East African. They want Amazon to be fair when dealing with them when it comes to productivity.
Workers say its hard to reach that 230 item an hour requirement because their time is interrupted when they leave the production line for prayer. Muslim workers are given paid leave for prayers breaks, a requirement by state law.
This group wants Amazon to promote workers from their majority East African workforce and to use profits to fund initiatives that address issues like lack of safe and affordable housing.
They believe Amazon should work with it’s Somali workers to reduce economic disparity in the community it heavily recruits from.
The workers are being represented by the nonprofit Awood Center. But the Star Tribune reports the two sides have not resolved their differences, which include increasing workloads and limited advancement opportunities.
He’s not the most powerful politician in Illinois by accident.
An incoming freshman legislator from west suburban Naperville — who campaigned on a promise to vote against Mike Madigan as speaker — says she is receiving warnings from Democratic lawmakers and unions that a “no” vote on his leadership bid will lead to retaliation against her.
State Rep.-elect Anne Stava-Murray told the Sun-Times she has received many calls, with many following a “script.”
In addition, she says that at a dinner featuring lawmakers she and other freshman legislators were “forcibly kissed” — although she didn’t immediately elaborate on that situation.
In a lengthy text message Stava-Murray wrote to Jessica Basham, Madigan’s chief of staff, the new lawmaker said that she has “fielded several calls from colleagues seeking to change my mind about my vote that had made me actively worry about retaliation if I didn’t ‘choose my battles wisely’ and if I ‘started off on the wrong foot.’”
Venezuelans Lament Gun Ban: Allows Government to Dominate Them
As violent as the left is by nature, imagine if we did not have the means to defend ourselves.
The ban was passed under Hugo Chavez and then bolstered with $47 million for enforcement under Nicolas Maduro. The penalty for “illicit carrying or selling a weapon now is 20 years behind bars.”
In addition to the threats from their own government, Venezuelans now face a surging violent crime rate. For example, fewer than 10,000 people were murdered in Venezuela in 2012, the year the gun ban was put in place. Thereafter the death numbers began to climb; “28,000 people were murdered” in Venezuela in 2015.
In the United States, the Founding Fathers put the Second Amendment in place for the explicit purpose of guaranteeing the citizens could defend themselves from their own government. In Federalist 46, James Madison made clear that Americans are exceptional because armed.
As Never-Trumper Bill Kristol has learned the hard way.
The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters.
It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base.
On cable TV, one network in particular has abandoned decades of journalistic tradition and ethics, devoting its resources to a relentless, nakedly partisan crusade to savage President Trump: CNN. Its ratings, predictably, are in the tank — in October, CNN fell behind both the Hallmark Channel and Home and Garden Television.
