In order to restore confidence in Washington D.C. and in particular the Justice Department, the American people need to know what happened with cases such as Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal and particularly Hillary Clinton’s violation of the Espionage Act.
Hugh Hewitt, a radio talk show host, asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions if he had any intentions on investigating Obama’s highly politicized Justice Department. The AP reported the following:
Sessions was noncommittal but left the door open, saying he would do everything he could to "restore the independence and professionalism of the Department of Justice."
"So we would have to consider whether or not some outside special counsel is needed," Sessions said. "Generally, a good review of that internally is the first step before any such decision is made."
I guess the answer to that is don't hold your breath.
Identity politics has become a religion to progressives. This is an interesting interview.

Here is another revelation the mainstream media hasn’t reported: the Obama administration bugged the House of Representatives cloak room. Here is an excerpt from Gateway Pundit.
Congressman Devin Nunes (speaking to Hugh Hewitt) : No, I absolutely do not, especially after this wiretapping incident, essentially, of the House of Representative. I don’t think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where I’m sitting right now, the Cloak Room.
If a republican president had done that it would be impeachment and prison.
Can an elderly, white male be a Dreamer? A 59 year old has lived illegally in Canada for almost his entire life, but those meanies from the Great White North have sent him packing back to the Netherlands.
A 59-year-old B.C. man who had lived in Canada since he was a baby arrived in Amsterdam today after being deported to the Netherlands because of his criminal offences, which he says were due to his mental illness.
Len Van Heest was met at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol by his cousin Monique Lemstra, according to his brother, Daniel, who lives in North Vancouver.
"We have put in place a secure system for Len, where he feels secure and happy and is well cared for via our relatives in the Netherlands," said Daniel Van Heest.
Len Van Heest will temporarily stay with Lemstra and then move in with other Dutch relatives.
He gave a tearful interview Monday at Vancouver International Airport.
"This is the only home I've ever known," he said. "And they're kicking me out now.
"They're sending me to a foreign country, they're taking my mom away from me, all my friends. I'm devastated."
Where are all the progressives? Why are they not shedding tears for this Dreamer? Why this poor unfortunate is being separated from his family. Is he not deserving of their compassion? If only he were a third - worlder from Latin America or a Muslim refugee then maybe we would see some action.
An in-depth study on the virtues of today’s Democratic Party has become a best seller. Here is an excerpt from the Daily Wire:
On Thursday, —which is filled with 266 pages, reflective of Knowles's "exhaustive research." cultural correspondent and bestselling author Michael Knowles appeared on Fox News' to discuss his top selling book,
Those blank pages reflect their moral principles and respect for the Constitution of the United States. How apropos.

An Illegal alien culturally enriched Franklin, North Carolina by decapitating his Mother and dragging her head around for all to see.
The Franklin County District Attorney said Tuesday that 18-year-old Oliver Mauricio Funes Machada will be moved to Central Prison because it’s “more appropriate for any special needs he may have.”
He was taking four different medications? I wonder who paid for that. Could it be the U.S. taxpayers, hmmmmm?
Word of advice to the White House: stick to reality. Health care is a big deal and we can’t afford any #alternativefacts.

The truth? ACA resulted from one of the most transparent drafting processes in recent memory.

Nancy Pelosi is completely devoid of reality. She demands transparency in RINOcare? Roll the tape!
Michael Moore is a modern day Nostradumbass. Conservatives shouldn’t be too hard on this libtard. The whole damn Democratic Party subscribes to this kind of socialist philosophy. The problem is they’ll never admit to being wrong even when the future has proven them false.
Medicaid was established to help the poor. But as usual, Beltway courtesans aren’t content with a government program’s original mission. No, they have to subject everyone to the wonders of bureaucratic red tape by turning it into an entitlement.
Middle-class families, who once proudly were able to afford private health insurance, are now forced to go hat in hand to a federal commissar for a government handout. Mind you, this country is $20 trillion in debt with $200 trillion in unfunded liabilities. Take a look at the graph below and tell me this is sustainable.
If you think healthcare is expensive now, wait until it’s free. Venezuelans have universal healthcare. I wonder how that’s working out for them.
The Republican Party couldn’t have a bigger mandate than repealing Obamacare. Starting in 2010, Americans throughout the country kicked Democrats out of public office from the village dog catcher to President of the United States just to send a message that we’ve had enough. And what do these spineless RINO’s do? They give us Obamacare lite.
The Daily Wire outlined 5 problems with Speaker Ryan’s RINOcare:
1) Retains requirements that insurance covers people with pre-existing conditions
2) Creates a backdoor mandate
3) Creates individual healthcare subsidies
4) Continues Medicaid expansion
5) Subsidizes high-risk pools at the state level.
For some reason, everyone equates health insurance to actual health care. Creating more mandates, subsidizing insurance companies and expanding government programs will not bring down actual cost. If anything, these measures will exasperate an already bankrupt system. My god! Are these people incapable of learning from their mistakes?
These Versailles D.C. courtesans have resigned themselves to another entitlement program. Here is Charles Krauthammer on Fox News:
The simple fact is Republicans are gutless wonders with low-principles. I have more respect for Democrats who don’t give a damn about anyone or anything but their agenda. They shoved Obamacare down our throats and laughed in our faces. They didn’t worry about their political careers like the actors who are currently in power.

The three most abused words in American history are “We the People.” That introduction has become a catalyst for entitlement programs that are bankrupting this country. Liberals don’t care about the financial wellbeing of this country or about Article One, Section Eight as long as they get their goodies. Sooner or later this bill will come due and the free ride will plunge over the cliff.
Patrick Henry, one of the greatest orators and patriots in American history, questioned the use of those three words in one of his speeches at the Virginia ratification convention in 1788:
And here I would make this inquiry of those worthy characters who composed a part of the late federal Convention. I am sure they were fully impressed with the necessity of forming a great consolidated government, instead of a confederation. That this is a consolidated government is demonstrably clear; and the danger of such a government is, to my mind, very striking. I have the highest veneration for those gentlemen; but, sir, give me leave to demand, What right had they to say, We, the people? My political curiosity, exclusive of my anxious solicitude for the public welfare, leads me to ask, Who authorized them to speak the language of, We, the people, instead of, We, the states? States are the characteristics and the soul of a confederation. If the states be not the agents of this compact, it must be one great, consolidated, national government, of the people of all the states. I have the highest respect for those gentlemen who formed the Convention, and, were some of them not here, I would express some testimonial of esteem for them. America had, on a former occasion, put the utmost confidence in them--a confidence which was well placed; and I am sure, sir, I would give up any thing to them; I would cheerfully confide in them as my representatives. But, sir, on this great occasion, I would demand the cause of their conduct. Even from that illustrious man who saved us by his valor, I would have a reason for his conduct: that liberty which he has given us by his valor, tells me to ask this reason; and sure I am, were he here, he would give us that reason. But there are other gentlemen here, who can give us this information. The people gave them no power to use their name. That they exceeded their power is perfectly clear. It is not mere curiosity that actuates me: I wish to hear the real, actual, existing danger, which should lead us to take those steps, so dangerous in my conception. Disorders have arisen in other parts of America; but here, sir, no dangers, no insurrection or tumult have happened; everything has been calm and tranquil. But, notwithstanding this, we are wandering on the great ocean of human affairs. I see no landmark to guide us. We are running we know not whither. Difference of opinion has gone to a degree of inflammatory resentment in different parts of the country, which has been occasioned by this perilous innovation. The federal Convention ought to have amended the old system; for this purpose they were solely delegated; the object of their mission extended to no other consideration. You must therefore, forgive the solicitation of one unworthy member to know what danger could have arisen under the present Confederation, and what are the causes of this proposal to change our government.
Had the preamble been correctly worded, “ The States,” liberals couldn’t use the introduction of the Constitution as a cudgel to raid taxpayers’ pockets and bankrupt the country.

This woman was the Attorney General of the United States and she's calling for death and blood in the streets. I've no doubt that she was involved in the wiretapping of Trump Towers. These people are lawless and demonstrate it every chance they get.

I can’t count how many times I’ve heard someone say the U.S. Constitution is an antiquated document and doesn’t pertain to our times. These people couldn’t be more wrong. First of all, human nature doesn’t change. We haven’t evolved into angelic beings completely devoid of sin and ambition. I would say we’ve gotten worse.
Americans in the 18th and 19th centuries were God-fearing Christians. In today’s America, Christians are under attack for simply following their faith. I believe our Founders would be shocked to see we’ve devolve into a nation of degenerates.
A book entitled, A Child of Fortune: A Correspondent’s Report on the Ratification of the U.S. Constitution & the Battle for a Bill of Rights details the eleventh month odyssey of States ratification. Many will be shocked to discover that the debates between Anti-Federalists and Federalists mirror today’s politics. They’ll also find out liberals have bastardized our Constitution and turned our social compact against us.
While reading this correspondent’s report, many will recognize the rural/urban divide. It was the farmers, frontiersmen and sagacious intellectuals who demanded a bill of rights to protect them and future generations from an abusive central government.
However, urban dwellers such as merchants, bankers and men of ambition and low-character saw the benefits of a strong central government. These people would revert to all sorts of misdeeds to stifle and quash Anti-Federalists publications even to the point of destroying printing presses. Some dissenters were harassed into silence.
Thomas Jefferson knew of the corrosive nature of cities. He wrote the following:
“…I think our governments will remain virtuous for many centuries,” Minister Jefferson predicts to Congressman Madison, “as long as they are chiefly agricultural; and this will be as long as there shall be vacant lands in any part of America. When they get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, they will become corrupt as in Europe.”
There has been some debate about a “religious test” when allowing foreigners into the United States. Once again, this is a bastardization of the context on which it was wrought. The Constitution doesn’t allow a religious test when it comes to holding a federal office. However, this was an issue of contention in States ratification. Many delegates wanted to make sure that people in power were honorable Christians. Their main concern was Popery and the influence of the Catholic Church. Others were more broad and circumspect. Henry Abbot, a delegate in the North Carolina convention, said the following:
“…the exclusion of religious tests,” he said, “is by many thought dangerous and impolitic. They suppose that if there be no religious test required, pagans, deists, and Mahometans might obtain offices amongst us, and that the senators and representatives might all be pagans.”
The preamble might have cost delegates in the Connecticut convention by omitting, “a firm belief of the being and perfections of the one living and true god.”
Paper money and direct taxation was also a contentious issue as it is today along with a strong national defense. We are not so different from those who founded this country. The Constitution is just as relevant today as was back then. Liberals may declaim and defame our history but they can’t deny us our American heritage with living and breathing documents.
