Progressive Rep Ro Khanna Slams Senator Sinema For Blocking Build Back Better Without Explanation

$upport via Cash App

During his appearance on Fox News Sunday(10/24/21), Rep Ro Khanna(D-CA), took a swipe at Senator Kyrsten Sinema(D-AZ) for blocking the Build Back Better bill, and other Democratic agenda proposals, without offering any public explanations as to her objections. Rep Khanna chastised this apparent media double standard, saying even former President Trump, who was generally hostile to the media, was forced to address the public every now and then–certainly more than the free pass the mainstream media seems to be according Senator Sinema.

Rep Ro Kana’s full interview on Fox News Sunday is available here, but the relevant clip is below

Rep Khanna told FNS host Chris Wallace: “Senator Manchin has been a straight shooter. You know exactly where he stands. I disagree with areas, but I respect that. My concern with Senator Sinema is, why are the rules different for her? Why doesn’t she go on shows like yours? Why doesn’t she explain herself? If she’s shifted her position on Trump tax cuts, explain it. I guess I’ve never seen a politician including frankly the former President Trump, who just totally ducks answering questions of the media or constituents, and that’s my frustration with her. She’s not clear about what she believes.”

Host Chris Wallace also expressed frustration, saying that multiple efforts by Fox News Sunday staff to book Senator Sinema for an interview have all failed, and that the Senator will not even meet them in private.

Bottom line folks, when the most hostile politician towards the media is regarded as being more accessible to the media than a sitting Dem Senator, who’s holding the Dem legislative agenda hostage, then we have a problem. As Rep Khanna correctly stated, it’s time for MSM to end this ridiculous double standard, and start calling out Senator Sinema’s “ducking”.

Rep Jim Jordan’s Shifty Answers About His Convos With Trump On January 6th

$upport via Cash App

CNN’s Brianna Keilar did an interesting segment on her New Day show (10/21/2021), where she explored Rep Jim Jordan’s very shifty answers to questions about his conversations with then President Trump on January 6th 2021. It appears Rep Jim Jordan’s accounts of his conversations with Trump on that fateful day appear to be changing with every subsequent interview, meaning he may be hiding, or attempting to hide some details about his interactions with Trump on that day.

After stating categorically in previous interviews that he spoke to Trump on January 6th, but only after the insurrection, the Ohio Congressman appears to be changing his tune lately, suggesting that he spoke to Trump on January 6th, but he doesn’t know “when those conversations happened.” Basically, he now doesn’t remember whether he spoke to Trump before or after the insurrection.

Any reasonable person presented with Rep Jim Jordan’s conflicting statements as to whether he spoke to Trump before or after the January 6th insurrection will arrive at the same conclusion, and that is, Rep Jim Jordan is attempting to hide details of his January 6th conversations with Trump from the public. Rep Jordan’s phone records on January 6th can solve this mystery instantly.

Bottom line folks, one doesn’t have to be an experienced investigator to deduce from the CNN segment that Rep Jordan should be a person of interest for the January 6th Commission. Maybe, just maybe, he’ll remember the exact time he spoke to Trump on January 6th, if he is forced to testify under oath.

GOP Congressman Introduced DOJ Official Who Tried To Overturn Georgia’s Election Results To Trump

Rep Scott Perry(R-PA) With Trump At A MAGA Rally

CNN Political Correspondent Sara Murray reported on New Day (10/13/2021) that Rep Scott Perry (R-PA) is facing renewed scrutiny over his role in the January 6th DC insurrection, because he is the one who introduced Jeffrey Clark to then President Donald Trump. Jeffrey Clark is the former senior Department of Justice(DOJ) official who went as far as drafting a letter that was supposed to be sent to the Georgia legislature, informing them that the 2020 election results were under DOJ investigation, thereby giving the Republican-controlled legislature an excuse for not certifying the 2020 election results. Jeffrey Clark’s attempts to grossly abuse DOJ powers to keep Trump in office, has naturally raised questions as to why Rep Perry introduced him to Trump in the first place.

New Day host Brianna Keilar:“Okay[Rep]Perry introduced Trump to Jeffrey Clark. How did Perry know Jeffrey Clark?

Sara Murray:“This is a big outstanding mystery. We’ve asked Perry’s office multiple times, they’ve not responded to our questions. Even in these reports, these DOJ officials say it was never clear how this Congressman from Pennsylvania had this relationship with Jeffrey Clark, how he came to facilitate introductions to President Trump, and even an Oval Office meeting with Trump and Clark in it.”

It also bears pointing out that Rep Perry was one of the most vocal House Republicans parroting Trump’s false claims that the 2020 elections had somehow been rigged against him–“the big lie”. This raises more questions as to why Rep Perry introduced Jeffrey Clark to Trump. Was Rep Perry also involved in drafting the letter that was intended for the Republican-controlled Georgia legislature?

Bottom line folks, Rep Scott Perry is definitely someone who needs to testify before the January 6th Commission. Reasonable people will agree that a sitting member of Congress who not only actively pushed Trump’s “big lie”, but also enlisted a corrupt DOJ official to abuse his position in furtherance of the same “big lie”, should be thoroughly grilled by the January 6th Commission.

Damning Senate Report Provides Sufficient Grounds For Trump’s Criminal Prosecution In Georgia

A newly released, and damning report by the Senate Judiciary Committee, shows the extent to which former U.S. Attorney General William Barr and other top officials at the Department of Justice(DOJ), abused their positions to further former President Trump’s false claims that the 2020 elections were rigged against him. Crucially, the Senate report shows that Trump and his DOJ allies focused heavily on the state of Georgia. You’ll remember that in early 2021, Fulton County DA Fani Willis launched an investigation into whether Trump’s phone calls to Georgia election officials pressuring them to overturn the Georgia election results, violated Georgia law.

Shortly after the Fulton County DA bombshell, there were media reports that a senior DOJ official, one Jeffrey Clark, went as far as drafting a letter that was supposed to be sent out to the Georgia legislature saying that the election results were under investigation, a move that would have given pro-Trump Georgia legislators an excuse not to certify the state’s election results. Even though Clark’s letter never went out, it’s mere presence raised a lot of questions as to whether DOJ resources were being abused to further Trump’s lies about election fraud.

Reasonable people will agree that this newly released, damning Senate Judiciary Committee report, bolsters the case for Trump’s criminal prosecution by the Fulton County DA’s office. You don’t have to take Yours Truly’s word for it, listen to what the esteemed Senator from Rhode Island said on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show.

Sen Whitehouse told Maddow: “I think there are three really key takeaways from this[Senate report]. First, is a very simple, one and that is how deeply, personally involved President Trump was in all of this–meetings, and phone calls, and contacts, Oval Office –he was neck deep in this personally. So that would be point one. Point two would be how much of the scheme focused on Georgia. The letter was about Georgia, the schemes to maneuver U.S. Attorney [B.J.]Pak out of Georgia were up his sleeve about Georgia, and it supplements whatever investigative materials the Fulton County DA, DA Willis, is pulling together to look at Trump’s effort to subvert the election in Georgia. So it ties together into what could be a very interesting case in the Fulton County DA’s office…”

There’s no other way any reasonable person could interpret Senator Whitehouse’s statements on The Rachel Maddow Show other than, the combination of Trump’s phone calls to Georgia election officials, plus the damning Senate Judiciary Committee report showing Trump’s effort to use the DOJ to overturn the state’s election results, provide enough legal justification for a criminal prosecution by the Fulton County DA’s office. The only reason Sen Whitehouse stopped short of saying so explicitly on Maddow’s show, is because there are constraints as to what he can discuss publicly about this issue, given his role as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Bottom line folks, Trump’s harassing phone calls to Georgia election officials, plus his efforts to use the DOJ to overturn Georgia’s election results, provide more than enough legal justification for his criminal prosecution by the Fulton County DA’s office. The only question left is whether DA Fani Willis will for the first time, make Trump face consequences for his misdeeds.

Jan 6th Organizers Urged Trump To Intervene To Stop Ali Alexander From Causing Violence At The Rally

A troubling report on MSNBC’s Velshi show(10/02/2021) says that the leaders of the pro-Trump group Women For America First, and other organizers of the January 6th rally, tried desperately to get former President Trump to intervene and stop Ali Alexander and his cohorts, from causing violence at the 1/6 rally. Ali Alexander is an avid Trump supporter and founder of Stop The Steal movement, which aimed to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential elections in favor of Trump. According to venerable journalist Carol Leonnig, who was a guest on Velshi show, the organizers of the January 6th rally were well aware that prior to January 6th, Ali Alexander was already urging prospective rally attendees, both directly, and through online posts, to come and violently attack the Capitol. The January 6th rally organizers apparently reached out to Trump’s allies at the White House, and even Trump himself for intervention regarding Ali Alexander, but nothing was done to stop him.

Carol Leonnig told host Velshi:“There are, reportedly, people who were warning the White House, and warning President Trump directly, about the potential for violence and chaos, and a promoted march on the Capitol. The folks who are subpoenaed[by January 6th Commission]involve Women For America group, who were complaining to their allies in the White House that Ali Alexander of Stop The Steal, was privately and publicly, arguing with protesters they should march on the Capitol, and trying to promote that online.”

There’s no other way any reasonable person would interpret Carol Leonnig’s statements on Velshi’s show other than, the leaders of Women For America First, and other organizers of the January 6th rally, were fully aware of Ali Alexander’s plans to turn the rally into a violent attack on the Capitol, in violation of their permit, and when they reached out to former President Trump and his allies to stop Mr Alexander, Trump and his allies failed to do so.

To make matters worse for Trump, Leonnig added that there are credible reports indicating that his former campaign staffer Katrina Pierson, directly confronted him with the Ali Alexander problem, meaning Trump was fully aware of the potential for a violent attack on the Capitol. Leonnig told host Velshi: “Katrina Pierson, as described in previous reports, was herself frustrated about the[online]promotion that Ali Alexander was stoking for a march on the Capitol…What’s critical about Katrina Pierson is, in addition to her frustration about this claim, she is tasked with going directly to the President to resolve this dispute between Women For America, a very pro-Trump group, and Ali Alexander of Stop The Steal, a very pro-Trump group. She is reported to have gone to him personally to warn him, and to ask for his help in resolving this…”

So there’s no question that Trump was fully aware of the potential for a violent attack on the Capitol on January 6th. The question for the January 6th Commission will be whether Trump made any effort to prevent the violent insurrection or whether, as many fear, he encouraged Ali Alexander and company, to attack the Capitol and disrupt the certification of the election results.

Bottom line folks, evidence is finally trickling in, confirming what many have suspected all along, and that is, the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol was not a spontaneous event that sprung up among some over-excited Trump supporters, but rather, a well planned, well funded event, that was known by former President Trump and his allies. Reasonable people will agree that if the legal principle “equal justice under law” is still applicable in the United States, then former President Trump and his allies also need to be held to be held accountable by being criminally prosecuted for aiding and abetting the January 6th insurrection in Washington DC.

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo:”Texas Is Being Run From Maralago”

$upport via Cash App

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo appeared on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show (09/24/2021), where she blasted elected Republicans in Texas for giving in to former President Trump’s baseless demands for an audit into the state’s 2020 election results. The decision by the Texas Secretary of State’s office to conduct an audit into the election results of Collin, Dallas, Harris and Tarrant counties, came literally a few hours after Trump’s demand, which led a visibly upset Judge Hidalgo to tell host Maddow that Texas was “being run from Maralago.”

Judge Hidalgo told Maddow:“We have to remember we had incredibly successful elections here in Harris County in 2020. We had innovations that led to record turnouts from both parties, the highest in 30 years, I mean it was beautiful, and since then, no evidence has come out that would in any way cause the need for this kind of audit. All we’ve seen is [former]President Trump exhorting the state, or [Governor]Abbott, to have this audit…The reality of it is Texas is being run from Maralago, and that is dangerous, and it’s not appropriate…it’s extremely concerning.”

Judge Hidalgo added that time had come for politicians in Washington to get off the sidelines, and actively join the fight against voter suppression in the states, telling host Maddow, “We need the federal government to act, I mean, this has gone too far… This should be another call to action. We’ve got the writing on the wall. We’ve got to get off our chairs and get moving on all this.”

Bottom line folks, as Judge Hidalgo correctly pointed out, time has come for some decisive action to be taken against these naked efforts by Republicans at the state level, to restrict the voting rights of minorities. Democrats in Washington cannot just sit on the sidelines, and watch their counterparts in Republican-led states like Texas, go to war against GOP’s efforts to restrict minority voting rights. Simply put, time has come for Democrats in Washington to finally do away with the filibuster, and institute a national voting standard geared towards making it easier for people to vote, as opposed to GOP’s scheme of limiting access to the ballot box. As Judge Hidalgo correctly put it, congressional Democrats need to “get off their chairs and get moving” on a comprehensive federal voting rights law.

Rep McCaul Says The Taliban Are Holding Americans Hostage At An Airport In Afghanistan

Rep Michael McCaul(R-TX), the top Republican in the House Foreign Affairs Committee, appeared on Fox News Sunday(09/05/2021), where he made the bombshell claim that the Taliban are holding Americans, already seated in planes and awaiting departure, hostage at the Mazar-i-Sharif Airport in Afghanistan.

Rep McCaul’s full interview on Fox News Sunday is available here, but the relevant clip is below

Rep McCaul told host Chris Wallace: “We have six airplanes at Mazar-i-Sharif Airport, six airplanes, with American citizens on them as I speak, also with these interpreters, and the Taliban is holding them hostage for demands right now. State[Department] has cleared these flights, and the Taliban will not let them leave the airport…And that’s my concern…they[Taliban] are going to demand more and more, whether it be cash, or legitimacy as the government of Afghanistan…This is really turning into a hostage situation, where they are not going to allow American citizens to leave until they get full recognition from the United States of America.”

Needless to say, Americans being held hostage in a hostile foreign nation, will always be a big deal, or as TeamBiden would say, a “bfd”. It will be interesting to see how the Biden administration addresses this bombshell claim by the ranking Republican in the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick Defends State’s Controversial Abortion Law

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick(R-TX) appeared on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle show(09/02/2021) to defend the controversial Texas abortion bill(SB8), which the U.S. Supreme Court recently allowed to stand. Lt. Gov Patrick told fill-in host Jason Chaffetz that SB8 is simply meant to punish doctors in Texas who perform abortions after detecting a heartbeat.

Lt. Governor Patrick specifically said: “The Supreme Court said in Roe v Wade…that the state has a legitimate interest in protecting the potentiality of life, and that’s what SB8 does. When we pass this bill, we want to give that little Texan in the womb, who has a heartbeat, a chance to see their full potential. And so everyone who is speaking against this bill, obviously for whatever their reason, [is] very comfortable with taking the life of a little Texan who has a heartbeat. Our bill, which has everyone apoplectic on the left, simply says that any doctor who performs an abortion once that doctor detects a heartbeat, can be sued by any citizen in Texas, for up to $10,000, and anecdotally…what we hear now, our Planned Parenthood abortion centers around the state, have stopped doing abortions on little Texans with a heartbeat. That’s the purpose of SB8.”

Abortion has been, and continues to be, a very charged topic in U.S. politics. Yours Truly, the consummate “gentleman and scholar”, believes that it is in the public’s best interests, that the contours of the SB8 debate be clearly defined–that people know exactly what each side is arguing. It is very clear, that according to Lt. Governor Patrick, SB8 is meant to punish doctors in Texas, who perform an abortion, even after detecting a heartbeat. Whether one agrees or disagrees with that point of view is not the issue here. The important thing is that the public is very clear as to the Republican stance re SB8 versus the Dem/liberal stance. Everybody benefits from an informed debate.

It will be interesting to see how the fight over SB8 will play out in the months and years to come, and whether the conservative U.S. Supreme Court will ever entertain a challenge to SB8 on the merits. Until then, as Trump famously says, “We’ll see what happens.”

Sen Lindsey Graham Calls For Biden’s Impeachment For “Dereliction Of Duty” Over Afghanistan

Senator Lindsey Graham(R-SC) appeared on CBS’ Face The Nation show(08/29/21) to discuss the ongoing evacuation crisis in Afghanistan. At his Face The Nation interview, Sen Graham blasted his “good friend”, President Biden, saying Biden needs to be impeached for “dereliction of duty” over his handling of Afghanistan.

Senator Graham’s full interview on Face The Nation is available here, but the relevant clip is below.

Host Ed O’Keefe:“You called for his impeachment[Thursday] over Afghanistan. Do you still feel he should be impeached over this?”

Sen Graham:“Yeah, I think it’s dereliction of duty to leave hundreds of Americans behind enemy lines, turn them into hostages, to abandon thousands of Afghans who fought honorably along our side, to create conditions for another 9/11 that are now through the roof. Yeah, I think he’s been derelict in his duties as Commander-in-Chief. I don’t think he got bad advice and took it, I think he ignored sound advice. This is Joe Biden being Joe Biden. He’s been this way for 40 years, but now he’s the Commander-in-Chief. He’s not a Senator, he’s not the Vice President. These are Commander-in-Chief decisions. I think the best you can describe him is dereliction of duty at the highest level.”

Notice how Sen Graham went out of his way to low-blow his “good friend” Biden, by projecting him as some kind of knucklehead, who’s impervious to wise counsel. Wow, with friends like Sen Graham, who needs enemies?

Bottom line folks, as Yours Truly has repeatedly stated before, expect this “left our people behind” attack line, to feature heavily in GOP campaign ads for 2022. You’re already hearing the same chorus from establishment Republicans like Senators Mitch McConnell, Ben Sasse, Rep Liz Cheney , and others. Will TeamBiden/Democrats come up with an effective counternarrative to blunt this GOP attack line in 2022? As Trump famously says, “We’ll see what happens.”
