Trey Gowdy Rips into ‘Deeply Partisan’ Adam Schiff: ‘Leaking Like a Sieve’

H/T Western Journal.

Representative Pencil Neck Adam Schiff(Delusional-CA) is a partisan hack that has not one scrap of evidence President Trump has committed any crimes.

Former South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy joined the Fox News program “America’s Newsroom” on Friday to weigh in on the intelligence whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump.

Gowdy, former chairman of the House Oversight Committee, offered an explanation as to why people might be hesitant to share sensitive information with certain members of Congress — namely, California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff.

“I warned people weeks ago that if Adam Schiff continued to be the chairperson of the House Intelligence Committee, who’s one of the most deeply partisan members of the House, eventually people would stop sharing information with the Intelligence Committee, and apparently that’s what’s happened,” Gowdy said.

“If [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi wants this information given to Congress, she should pick a less-partisan person to be the chairperson of that committee,” he said.

The information to which Gowdy is referring is the contents of a whistleblower complaint within the intelligence community.

The complaint was filed through the proper channels when an administration employee seemed to believe that Trump made a troubling “promise” to an unnamed world leader.

Although the president does have broad authority when it comes to declassifying information, the employee felt it was necessary to lodge the accusation.

Trump has vehemently denied doing anything wrong.

The complaint currently rests with the inspector general of the intelligence community, Michael Atkinson, who is refusing to disclose the contents to Schiff and, by extension, Congress.

Schiff has not taken this well and has vowed to investigate the complaint come “hell or high water,” according to CNN.

“This involves something more sinister, something involving a serious or flagrant abuse or violation of law or misappropriation, and the IG underscored the seriousness of this, and also that this need to be looked into,” the congressman said.

Gowdy continued to outline exactly why the Democrat is dealing with such resistance.

“When you put someone who is wrong as often as Adam Schiff is wrong, and is as deeply partisan as he is, in charge of the Intelligence Committee, then no, you’re not going to share confidential information because Adam leaks like a sieve,” he said.

Gowdy later declined to opine on the facts of the case while urging Americans to show similar restraint and calling out selective outrage.

“I think we got to get to the point in our political culture where we don’t speculate. There’s a transcript, we don’t have to wonder what was said,” he said. “I think what does frustrate people is I seem to recall a president who said, ‘I’ll have more flexibility in my second term.’

“We don’t have to wonder about that, that’s on tape. I don’t think there was a similar level of outrage when President [Barack] Obama promised that to the Russian president as there is now, and we don’t have any idea what President Trump said.”

Jackson Lee’s AR-15 Ignorance is More Democrat Political Malpractice

H/T AmmoLand.

We all get a chuckle or two any time Shelia Jackson Lee(Delusional-TX)opens her mouth.

Like her saying, Neil Armstrong planted the flag on Mars the Constitution is 400 years old.

Now saying how heavy the AR-15 and saying it uses a .50 caliber round.

Here is a thought that should scare you to your very soul is the ignorance level of the people that elected and reelects Shelia Jackson Lee(Delusional-TX).

Gungrabby Gabby Giffords and her handlers know they can rely on the stunning incompetence of Sheila Jackson Lee and her useful idiot constituents to help them out with any citizen disarmament edict they need to be pushed. (Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee / Facebook photo)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “I’ve held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t,” Texas Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee claims to an approving media while trying to get House members to “flood” the Senate and demand new citizen disarmament edicts. “It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving and the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these kinds of bullets, need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street.”

Coming in at just over six-and-a-half pounds with a full magazine of .223 rounds, one wonders if those are boxes of chocolate Lee is referring to. Her similarities to “Forrest Gump” don’t end there, as you never know what you’re going to get every time she opens her mouth. To paraphrase a quote from another popular movie, “Tropic Thunder,” she went full Jackson Lee.  Everybody knows you don’t go full Jackson Lee.

Not that anything stops her from doing just that, and repeatedly. As long as we’re mentioning movies, we can’t forget “Idiocracy,” and note we’re talking about a lawmaker who has treated us to such gems as:

  • The Constitution is 400 years old.
  • Astronaut Neil Armstrong planted the flag on Mars.
  • There are still two Vietnams.
  • Klansmen are now the Tea Party.

There’s more, but you get the picture. To her credit, at least Jackson Lee hasn’t publicly speculated about Guam tipping over.

But since Jackson Lee has now turned her vast subject matter expertise to guns, it would be remiss not to recall she’s not the only ignoramus politician. It wasn’t all that long ago we saw New York Democrat Rep. Carolyn McCarthy challenged by Tucker Carlson of Fox News to explain what a “barrel shroud” was, as that was a  feature her so-called “assault weapon” bill would ban. After much deflection and trying to avoid answering the question, she was finally cornered into admitting she had no idea:

“I believe it’s the shoulder thing that goes up.”

And then we had New York Democrat Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington, who had this to say about the .50 caliber rounds Jackson Lee “thinks” you load AR-15s with:

“But some of these bullets as you saw have an incendiary device on the tip of it, which is a heat-seeking device, so you don’t shoot deer with a bullet that size. If you do, you could cook it at the same time.”

This was at a press conference, yet not one member of the media called BS and exposed Eddington for the know-nothing that she was. That’s because they don’t know themselves and aren’t held to account for getting it right on guns. Face it, gun bans are what they and their employers are all rooting for. Besides, it’s not like the audiences/readership are informed enough to call them on it. If they were, they’d be getting very different poll results when they ask about support for background checks, red flags, and bans. They can’t allow that.

And thus we have an “informed” Twitter poster who goes by the handle TexasMomsforBeto! (which ought to tell you something in itself), who has no doubt formed her “deep” convictions based on what she’s “learned” from politicians, gun-grab groups and media cheerleaders:

“Here is the thing… I don’t think you could even eat the meat of an animal killed with a semi automatic weapon. It would be so full of shrapnel.”

Yeah, but at least it would be cooked!

“Oh god poor animal,” an equally informed sympathizer agrees.

It’s bad enough that these people cast votes that cancel out ours, allowing politicians like Jackson Lee and their string-pullers to advance more edicts. That they do is nothing short of citizenship malpractice.

Worse is the political malpractice committed by arrogant, oath-breaking officeholders. Whether they’re genuine mental defectives, deliberate subversives or both, they’re enabled and empowered by useful idiot constituents.

And the interests of those who would rule (and the media they control) are to keep ‘em dumb…

O’Rourke: El Paso Shooting Came ‘At the Invitation of Our President’

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Robert Francis O’Rourke(delusional-TX) starts his day with a giant and heaping bowl of dumbass flakes.

Calls for gun registry, licenses for every firearm, and a ‘buyback’.

 

 

Beto O’Rourke (D.) accused President Donald Trump of inviting mass shootings during an appearance Saturday at the New Hampshire Democratic Party State Convention.

The former Texas congressman said the El Paso shooter, who killed 22 people, was a product of America’s racist culture and Trump’s racist rhetoric.

“This person drove 600 miles with that hatred, really at the invitation of our president, and opened fire with that AK-47 on innocent people in a Walmart, killing 22 of them and grievously wounding many dozens more,” O’Rourke said.

He proceeded to demand an aggressive gun-control agenda. Listing the items of that agenda, he said the political difficulty of legislating it all would not deter him.

“A gun registry in this country, licensing for every American who owns a firearm, and every single one of those AR-15s and AK-47s will be bought back so they are not in our streets, not in our homes, do not take the lives of our fellow Americans,” he said to loud applause. “And we are going to do that together.”

Assuming the position of a much-publicized New York Times series, O’Rourke stated the country’s founding was not in 1776 but in 1619, when the first African slave was brought to North America. This was the root of the gun violence problem, he argued.

“This is a country that has been defined by foundational, systemic, endemic racism, since the very founding of this country, August 20 of 1619, the first time that a kidnapped African was brought here against his will and made to serve as a slave to build the greatness and success and the wealth of this country, which his descendants would never be able to fully participate in,” O’Rourke said.

“This is the reality of United States of America,” O’Rourke continued.

He went on to argue it was only a matter of time before Trump, who has “no honor, no morals, and no ethics,” would bring about such an attack with his rhetoric.

“Sooner or later it was going to find us. It wasn’t a matter of if, it was a matter of when,” he said.

O’Rourke continued to praise progressive social movements that he said reflect the aspiration of some in America to right historical wrongs.

“This is a country that has produced Moms Demand, this is a country that has produced March for Our Lives, this is a country that has produced the leadership that will ensure that we not only have universal background checks and red flag laws and end the sale of those weapons of war, but that we go the necessary steps further, as politically difficult as those may be,” O’Rourke said.

 

 

Boom: Dana Loesch Unloads On Chicago Mayor For Failed Policies That Benefit Prohibited Gun Possessors

H/T Town Hall.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot(Delusional-Chicago)like all Delusional DemocRats can not accept their policies on guns do not and will not work.

It’s no secret that Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws on the books. Sadly, the Windy City is also one of the most violent hotbeds in the nation. During Labor Day weekend, 25 people were shot. Seven died from their injuries. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) used the example to show, once again, why disarmed law-abiding Americans is a bad idea.

Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer.

Second Amendment advocate Dana Loesch took Lightfoot to the woodshed, using local Chicago reporting to refute the mayor’s so called “facts.” Loesch pointed out the biggest flaw in Lightfoot’s argument: it doesn’t matter where prohibited possessors obtain their firearms. They’re still obtaining the firearm on the black market in an illegal fashion.

And it doesn’t help when repeat offenders are slapped on the wrist with reduced charges. If anything, this sends a message to criminals. It tells them that it’s okay to commit crimes, especially if it involves a firearm, because they’ll get a reduced sentence.

Let’s be clear: Lightfoot is ashamed of the violence in Chicago. If her city’s gun control policies were truly working, then Democrats would repeatedly point to Chicago as an example of why “common sense gun laws” are needed across the nation. But they don’t. In fact, any time a law-abiding gun owner mentions the violence in Chicago, it’s like we’re supposed to omit Chicago from the discussion. It’s like we’re supposed to completely ignore the continual issues the city has.

Adam Schiff Takes A Giant Step Away From Impeachment

H/T The Lid.

While Pencil Neck Adam Schiff(Delusional-CA)maybe be backing down on impeachment but his Comrade Jerry Nadler(Delusional-NY)is going balls to the wall on impeachment.

I can not help but laugh when I hear Pencil Neck Adam Schiff(Delusional-CA)referred to as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee as we all know Congress and the term intelligence is an oxymoron.

Adam Schiff has always been one of the lead liars pushing the fake Russian scandal. From the very beginning, the bug-eyed barrister from Burbank claimed to have proof that President Trump colluded with the Russians. He never came up with that proof. And thanks to Robert Mueller’s performance at his congressional hearings that proof seems even more nonsensical than ever. Even Democrats believe the  Mueller testimony was a disaster, but Adam Schiff-head says Pres Trump was proven to be a crook.  But if he really believed Trump to be guilty he wouldn’t have taken the giant step away from Impeachment he took today.

On CNN’s “New Day,” he praised Mueller’s performance as powerful, but gave little weight to the possibility of Trump being impeached, saying the only way he’s leaving office, at this point, is “by being voted out.”

Well, I think for the first time, people got to hear from the man who did the investigation himself. His work was not filtered by Bill Barr who misrepresented it. It wasn’t filtered by the president who certainly misrepresents it on a daily basis.

Latest: The Searing of the American Conscience Over the Issue of Abortion

But this is guy who spent the last two years of his life, has served the country his entire life talking, about that work and laying out how unethical, unpatriotic, criminal these actions are to willingly accept help from a foreign government to obstruct justice. So I think hearing that from the man who did the work was powerful.

The only thing powerfull about Mueller’s testimony was the feeling of sadness people had. seeing the former special prosecutor look so feeble.

We do need to be realistic, and that is, the only way he’s leaving office, at least at this point, is by being voted out, and I think our efforts need to be made in every respect to make sure we turn out our people.  Should we put the country through an impeachment? I haven’t been convinced yet that we should. Going through that kind of momentous and disruptive experience for the country, I think, is not something we go into lightly.”

But making false claims about a president is something Schiff goes into lightly. And those claims will continue.  Adam Schiff talks about Trump’s actions putting this country in danger but he doesn’t really care about that. He cares about his party more than national security. That was proven when he became Barack Obama’s house-Jew and helped to lead the effort to sell America on the lousy Iran deal. The same could be said about his Chairman-partner-in-crime the Jerrold Nadler.

Their only purpose in pushing the false Russia/obstruction narrative has ALWAYS been about returning the Oval Office to Democratic Party hands. They never cared about the truth, nor did they care that the American people wanted Donald Trump to be their president.  Even his step back from impeachment has nothing to do with what he believes. He’s only backing away to protect 2020 Democratic Party votes, and to raise his standing among the party leadership. Schiff doesn’t really believe what he says, he has no conscience.

To paraphrase something Shiff said during the Mueller hearing.  We can — and must — decide that this centuries-old experiment we call America is worth cherishing. And the ONLY way to do that is to stop the Democrats’ effort to overturn the 2016 election and to make sure they lose again in 2020.

Baltimore Mayor: ‘We’re Not Going to Cooperate’ in ICE Raids

H/T Breitbart.

Hopefully, the DOJ will bring charges against these Delusional DemocRats.

Baltimore’s mayor announced Friday that his city would not be the one to cooperate in a series of targeted immigration enforcement raids taking place on Sunday.

“We’re not going to cooperate,” said Democrat Baltimore Mayor Jack Young, who spoke Friday at a protest rally outside City Hall, according to a report from WJZ.

Young’s city is one of ten cities in the U.S. that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) targeted for deportation raids that would expel anyone in the U.S. not in the country legally.

“I said that we were not going to engage with ICE in the deportation or apprehension of any immigrants in the City of Baltimore.” Mayor Young added.

President Donald Trump confirmed Friday that the raids would take place Sunday, and would mostly be focused on criminals with “final deportation orders.” The raids are expected to last several days in ten different cities— including Atlanta, Denver, Baltimore, Chicago, New York, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

Other Democrat mayors, including Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, have also vowed not to cooperate with federal immigration officers conducting the raids.

Congressional Black Caucus Slams Justice Dems for Targeting Black Reps

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

It is funny to see the Delusional DemocRats at war with each other.

If a DemocRat does not run to embrace the radical left they get primaried by the radical left.

Yet if said DemocRat does embrace the radical left if they are from areas carried by President Trump in 2016 they lose to their Republican opponent.

CBC member compares Justice Democrats to the ‘Russian trolls of 2016’ sowing division in Democratic Party.

Democratic lawmakers in the Congressional Black Caucus expressed anger over Justice Democrats attempting to oust black lawmakers in the primaries, saying the group’s strategy is “a bunch of B.S.”

Justice Democrats, a progressive group aligned with freshman representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), is publicly backing primary challengers to several CBC members, including Reps. William Lacy Clay (Mo.) and Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.). Reps. Yvette Clarke (N.Y.), Joyce Beatty (Ohio), Emanuel Cleaver (Mo.) and Anthony Brown (D-Md.) have also expressed concerns about potentially being targeted in future weeks and months, according to the Hill.

Rep. Gregory Meeks, a senior CBC member and Queens Democratic Party boss, told the Hill it “seems strange” that “social Democrats seem to be targeting members of the Congressional Black Caucus, individuals who have stood and fought to make sure that African Americans are included and part of this process.”

“I don’t know what that agenda is, but if they want to come after members of the Black Caucus, it’s two ways,” Meeks said.

Clay, who has represented his district since 2001, said it’s “insulting” to the intelligence of voters in Missouri for Justice Democrats to target him.

“They are going after the wrong target. Instead of fighting Republicans and defeating Trump and holding on to our majority, they find it convenient to go after their own, which is to me a bunch of B.S.,” Clay told the Hill. He compared Justice Democrats to “Russian trolls of 2016,” saying they are sowing division in the Democratic Party.

Rep. Donald McEachin (Va.), another CBC member, was also frustrated by the Justice Democrats, saying the black lawmakers the group targets have some of the most progressive voting records in the caucus.

“I think challenging other Democrats in the primary when we’re trying to hold on to the majority is wrong unless the person is so far out of bounds, so far away from Democratic orthodoxy, but that’s not what’s going on here,” McEachin said.

Meeks has called for a meeting between CBC leaders and Justice Democrats to figure out why they are being targeted in the Democratic primaries.

“We have to find out who they are. Who is really running this show. We have to figure that out,” Meeks said.

Alexandra Rojas, the executive director of Justice Democrats, pushed back against the CBC, noting they have endorsed several candidates of color.

“We are supporting a black woman who is a community organizer who has taken on police brutality in the St. Louis area,” Rojas said. “Seventy percent of congressional districts in America have no competitive general election; primaries are often the only places where voters can have a real say.”

“Barack Obama first ran for Congress in a primary challenge to Rep. Bobby Rush, a CBC member,” Rojas added. “This is a democracy and voters deserve choices.”

The friction between the CBC and Justice Democrats comes amid the tensions in the House Democratic Caucus.  Earlier this week, Ocasio-Cortez accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) of singling out “newly elected women of color” during an interview with the Washington Post. Her comment responded to Pelosi’s New York Times interview with Maureen Dowd, where she took a jab at Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” of freshman progressive colleagues in the House.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi said. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “But the persistent singling out … it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful … the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”
