Your Shameless Attention Whore of the Day is

Former Congressman, and radio talk host Joe Walsh

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) is reportedly expected to announce his candidacy for president, becoming the second prominent Republican to challenge President Trump for the party’s nomination.

The former congressman supported Trump during the 2016 election but has hammered the president for his conduct in the years that followed. Earlier this year, he sharply criticized Trump over behavior outlined in Robert Mueller‘s report that detailed the results of the special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign

“I don’t know how anybody can read this report and think, ‘This is behavior that we want in our president,'” he told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin at the time.

“Criminal behavior, who knows?” he added. “But, boy, dishonest, immoral, unethical? Heck yes it is. And I’ll tell you, Brooke, every Republican on Capitol Hill agrees with what I just said. They can’t say that publicly.”

Excuse my skepticism, but Walsh sounds like someone trying for publicity and relevance, nothing more

The Left Hates America

When you hope millions of Americans have to suffer a recession, lose their jobs, their homes, go deep into debt, and have their standard of living, and yes, their children’s, all so your party can win an election, then you are trash! You are not compassionate, or feeling. You are not a champion of people, you are simply a person who cares that your party wins. 

Tulsi Gabbard destroys Kamala Harris

OUCH!

CNN host Jake Tapper queued up the question for the Hawaii congresswoman, asking her about her previous criticism of Harris for calling former Vice President Joe Biden a racist. But Gabbard had another path.

“I want to bring the conversation back to the broken criminal justice system that is disproportionately negatively impacting black and brown people all across this country today,” Gabbard began before unloading on Harris.

“Sen. Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record,” she added. “There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”

She went on to accuse Harris of hiding evidence that would have “freed an innocent man from death row” and that she kept prisoners past their sentence so as to use them as “cheap labor” in the state of California.

Her remarks sparked applause from the audience and caused Harris to shake her head, quietly saying “that’s not true.”

But Gabbard wasn’t done, as she continued her journey through Harris prosecutor past, accusing her of fighting to keep the unfair system of cash bail which, she noted, hurts poorer people “in the worst kind of way.”

Gabbard, to me, seems, at least in some ways reasonable, and yes, very attractive. She is certainly more in touch with at least some American values than Harris, who strikes me as a statist and elitist

 

Johnathan Turley sets Jabba the Hutt Nadler’s Brigade of Douchebags straight

FOX NEWS – House Democrats are “heading into a world of hurt” if they escalate their fight with Attorney General Bill Barr over access to the full Robert Mueller report, according to constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley.

Turley, a George Washington University law professor, issued the warning during testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. As lawmakers grilled him and other legal scholars on issues having to do with executive privilege and congressional oversight, Turley stated that while he generally tends to give weight to congressional power, they are sure to lose if they go to court for the purpose of holding Barr in contempt for not releasing the full Mueller report.

You are heading into a world of hurt if you go to the D.C. Circuit,” Turley warned.

The D.C. Circuit recently ruled on this very issue, stating in the case of McKeever v. Barr that, outside of the specific exceptions outlined in Rule 6(e), courts do not have authority to order the disclosure of grand jury information. Since any legal action taken against Barr for contempt would likely end up before the D.C. Circuit, Turley made it clear that going down that road is a bad idea for Congress.

“There’s no question that he cannot release this Rule 6(e) information,” Turley said, calling Barr’s position “unassailable.”

Turley made no bones about it in suggesting that the House Judiciary Committee was asking AG Barr to commit a CRIME.

Poor, poor Democrats! Chin up there Rep. Nadler, yes, all six of them

 

Kamala Harris trails in polls, blames RAAAAACISM!

Diogenes, however points out that Harris’s issue is neither her skin or her gender. No, Kamala, it is you

According to Sen. Kamala Harris, it’s no coincidence that the top three Democrats leading in 2020 Democrat primary polls are white guys.  According to her, it’s the result of biased media pundits shaping black folks views with discussions on who is electable in today’s america.  In her case, I’m sure her lack of perceived electablity has nothing to do with the Creepy Voodoo Witch persona she sometimes projects.

Speaking to the folks at the NAACP’s Fight for Freedom Dinner in the democrat run paradise of Detroit, the 2020 contender pathetically whined about her lack of popularity, saying that the media’s discussions about “electability” are leading minorities to believe that only a white man can defeat Donald Trump.  I don’t know, kinda sounds like Kamala is calling black folks stupid and can’t think for themselves. According to The Washington Post, her message to her predominantly black audience was to “stop believing the pundits’ take and get behind the candidates you align with personally.  Or, can’t you see I’m black and a women dammit!
