Dems shift strategy: Dump “quid pro quo,” replace with “extortion”

November 12, 2019

“We’ve got to get off this “quid pro quo thing” and compare Trump to a mob boss”

Democrats have a tricky new scheme afoot in their effort to overturn the 2016 election that so enraged them. The latest twist is to alter language, replacing words they regard as too esoteric for their minions, as they launch a baseless impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Jim Himes, a leftist congressman you’ve likely never heard of, shamelessly tells “Meet the Press” host, Chuck Todd, that Latin isn’t the way to generate support from the hoi polloi base of commoners that put elitists like him in office. They are dumping the term “quid pro quo” in favor of “extortion and bribery” which resonates with the low information Dem base who still watch reruns of “The Godfather.”

Himes is a gun confiscator, pro-abortion and open border, earning him an “F” rating from Conservative Review. He serves with Sen. Richard Blumenthal who deceitfully attempted to pass himself off as a combat veteran and was still elected by the reliable leftists in Connecticut.

This is the loaded question put to Himes* by network interviewer Todd, and Himes’ response:

CHUCK TODD: Do you feel as if that word (quid pro quo) does not penetrate the seriousness with what happened?

REP. JIM HIMES: Well I have two problems with quid pro quo. Number one, when you’re trying to persuade the American people of something that is really pretty simple, which is that the President acted criminally and extorted in the way a mob boss would extort somebody, a vulnerable foreign country, it’s probably best not to use Latin words to explain it. But the other thing I object to is that this is where the Republicans went. Extortion doesn’t require a “you give me this, and I’ll give you that” kind of quid pro quo. It simply requires using your muscle to get something that you don’t have a right to. So look, and by the way, of course the crowning absurdity here is now they’re all pretty much admitting because Ambassador Sondland has refreshed his recollection, they’re all basically admitting there was a quid pro quo. But gosh it wasn’t that bad, it was exactly the same thing as Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton. So look we gotta get off this quid pro quo thing because it’s complicated, they’ve already attested to the fact that it occurred and what we’re dealing with here is corruption, abuse of power in a way that damaged American national security.

On his own Twitter page, Himes goes full-fledge urbane, describing himself with pretentious, Viking-like mead making imagery and referring to himself as an “apiarist,” rather than a beekeeper:

“Connecticut Congressman. Reader. Runner. Swimmer. Apiarist. And I make maple syrup. And mead.”

Rep. Himes is one heck of an impressive guy! He reads, swims and makes his own honey-based joy juice, all while contorting language in an effort to bring down the President of the United States. But Himes remains compliant. This language shift is the latest scheme the Dems are employing in unison. They are willing marionettes, with Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff pulling the strings.

Trump impeachment driven by specter of Ruthless Court

November 8, 2019

Political left working feverishly to beat the clock on Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Democrats are no longer confined to reeling over the lopsided election results of Nov. 8, 2016 that put Donald Trump in the White House. The ongoing stellar economic news, with the lowest unemployment in decades and continuing escalating markets haven’t assuaged them. They are on a concerted mission to remove him from office.

Leftists are willing to do or say anything to destroy President Trump and invalidate his election.  When allegations of collusion with Russia didn’t pan out, they tried hanging China around his neck. The desperate Dems are now focused on nefarious dealings with the Ukraine, when it’s Papa Joe and son Hunter Biden’s underhanded, but exceedingly lucrative antics that should be grabbing their attention.

The opposition party’s sole focus is removing our duly elected president from power with whatever allegation sticks.

Since his election President Trump has been diligent about filling federal judicial vacancies. In scrupulous detail, the Heritage Foundation’s Judicial Appointment Tracker compares Presidents Donald Trump, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush and Ronald Reagan as of November 7, of each president’s third year. The total appointments to date follow their names. As you scroll through the well-researched compilation of information, pay particular attention to the recent trend to vote against confirmation of Trump’s nominees.

Which brings us to the core issue. President Trump has had the opportunity to make two appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court: Neil Gorsuch (in 2017) and Brett Kavanaugh (in 2018). Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, a former ACLU lawyer appointed by Bill Clinton is 86 years old and has serious medical conditions. The Dems are terrified of Trump making a third appointment to the high court. A speedy impeachment is their desperate route to keep that from happening. Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed a month of Supreme Court arguments as she recovered from lung cancer surgery. She suffered broken ribs in a fall last November and has been treated for both colon and pancreatic cancer. She was caught soundly sleeping during the State of the Union address. Rather than admit she has trouble staying alert, the octogenarian chose to say “I wasn’t 100 percent sober.” 

This stunning admission came from Justice Ginsburg herself in 2012. SRAZ titled the post, “US Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg: Unfit to serve.”

Know this. Undergirding the left’s continual onslaught of baseless allegations driving the impeachment of the President of the United States is the Supreme Court. The Dems are in desperation mode trying to beat the clock on Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Anti-Trumper Lindsey Graham opportunistically contorts into Trump supporter

November 4, 2019

McMaverick’s inseparable sidekick magically transforms, but can he be trusted?

Republicans are symbolized by the elephant for good reason. We share the animal’s strength, intellect and determination. We also possess long memories, a trait for which the impressive creatures are noted.

These characteristics are relevant in the context of political battles and alliances as they relate to besieged President Trump. Democrats and RINOcrats hammer him daily. Trump antagonist Mitt Romney, who deceivingly courted president-elect Trump, desperate to be named secretary of state, also campaigned with anti-Trump McCain, drawing less than stellar crowds. This Arizona Independent News Network cartoon and report links to a SRAZ post on an abysmal turnout. McCain returned the favor, though he fumblingly introduced Romney (video) as “President Obama.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a McCain devotee, appears to have moderated his stance on President Trump, advocating against the covert proceedings as the dems attempt to invalidate the 2016 election via impeachment.  Many conservatives remain skeptical of Graham’s newfound support of the president he routinely assailed when his loyal partner McCain was still above ground. Bachelor Graham described his relationship with McCain, stating, “It was a political marriage.”

Suddenly Graham, up for reelection in 2020, is a fervent supporter of President Trump. Graham is keenly aware his home state of South Carolina gave all nine of its electoral votes to Donald Trump, who carried the state with 54.9% to Hillary’s 40.7%.

Lest anyone be lulled into thinking Lindsey Graham has done a complete turnaround. This was Graham in December 2015 — 4 short years ago — appearing on CNN.

 Graham accused Donald Trump of being a “race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot, the ISIL Man of the Year, undercutting everything we stand for, empowering our enemy… culminating with…“and you know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell!”

Sens. Graham, McCain, and Romney (elected in Utah, Jan. 2019), joined by now ex-senator Jeff Flake, all publicly stated they would not vote for Trump in 2016. 

Romney and Flake have one other area of significance in common.  Flake had an 18% approval rating in his home state of Arizona, causing him to abandon his campaign for a second senate term. Romney is polling at exactly the same nationally, with only 18 % having a positive image of Romney, according to this NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Sunday. Romney opposes additional funding for a border wall. Utah is well on its way to becoming a sanctuary state.

Trusting opportunist Lindsey Graham is a fool’s errand.


Demonic Dems aim to doom Trump presidency

October 30, 2019

On the cusp of Halloween, Democrat congressional ghouls are lighting the fire under the impeachment caldron. The House Rules Committee will debate this contemptible 8-page resolution today to provide a “pathway forward” for the impeachment of President Trump.

When President Trump recently used the word “lynching” to describe this outrageous action against him, he was castigated for appropriating a term that one race now thinks it owns.

The word Holocaust has long been used to describe the Nazi’s systematic slaughter of 6 million Jews during WWII. In recent years has been appropriated to describe the legalized murders of pre-born human babies at the hands of abortionists since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. These figures are based on the numbers used by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, a division of Planned Parenthood of America.

In both instances, Holocaust describes gruesome, unconscionable deaths; the taking of innocent lives by those who considered them inconsequential.

President Trump is indeed being lynched by a ferocious mob, though they are wearing business suits instead of white hoods. They are assembled in congress rather than driving down back country roads after nightfall carrying torches to terrorize, torture and kill blacks. 

Yes. Words have meaning. President Trump has been maligned, demonized and colluded against since the day of his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration. The left-wing Hillary-supporting media, congressional Democrats and Hollywood elites have dedicated themselves to defaming and conducting a witch hunt against him.

Earlier today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) summed up the Democrat‘s actions stating:

“They have denied President Trump basic due process and are cutting his counsel out of the process in an unprecedented way. The House Democrats new resolution does not change any of that. The draft resolution that has been released does nothing of the sort. It falls way short, way short.” He added, “It does not confer on President Trump the most basic rights of due process or seemingly alter Chairman Schiff’s unfair process in the House Intelligence Committee in any way whatsoever.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), nearly 80, who has lost control to the radical “squad,” young enough to be her granddaughters, has back-pedaled on her lack of enthusiasm to impeach. Now she is moving forward with ferocious vigor.

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), an extreme leftist partisan who has conducted closed door meetings with the single goal of removing the elected President of the United States, has bared his fangs in anticipation of the kangaroo court proceedings. Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R-CD5) exposed Schiff in this commentary.

The Bible instructs us to gird our loins for the upcoming battle.


Trump bashed for not criticizing fake video fast enough

October 15, 2019

Truth has no place on network TV

Let’s get this straight: Someone makes a farcical video depicting President Trump viciously attacking his own real life media detractors, and he is being called upon to denounce it.  When he doesn’t do so soon or fervently enough to suit the left, he is reviled further. Keep in mind, he had not even seen the video, nor did he or his campaign have anything to do with its production.

Regardless, President Trump makes a reliable punching bag.

Typical of the skew, NBC’s leftist news anchor Lester Holt began the piling on declaring, “The White House is trying to distance the President from a disturbing video showing a likeness of him violently attacking his political opponents and the news media.”

The Hillary-supporting alphabet networks have been daily revilers of President Trump since he initially announced his candidacy, which they incorrectly deemed a “joke.” CNN has rejected his 30-second re-election campaign ad purchased by the campaign committee, saying it does not meet their standards…as if it had any.

This video features Dem disbelievers, who were unable to deal with this simple truth.


Louisiana’s governor’s race is one to watch & Update

October 9, 2019

Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019:

These are the unofficial election results from the Louisiana Secretary of State’s Office.

Not to make light of serious political races, but there are few states where the race for governor is more entertaining than in Louisiana. This year is no exception.

President Donald Trump is heading to the state to rally for both Republican candidates Eddie Rispone and Dr. Ralph Abraham. VP Mike Pence, in New Orleans recently, urged voters to unite in support of the “Republican cause.” The unusual strategy is to force a runoff aimed at keeping the current Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards, below 50% in Saturday’s election.

Edwards is the only Democrat governor in the deep South, which overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump in 2016. He won when former Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican, was term limited. Edwards is a hard-core leftist who was a delegate for Barack Obama — who twice lost Louisiana’s electoral votes, and supported scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. Edwards, who won with only 39.9%, benefited by having three GOP challengers splitting the vote. Louisiana is the only state that has sanctioned political chaos in what is known as a “jungle primary” system — where all candidates, regardless of party affiliation, appear on the same primary ballot.

Although one of the most expensive state elections ever, with over $50 million spent by candidates and outside interest groups, Edwards also could have been assisted, as one could only be in Louisiana, by carrying the magical name of Edwards. In 1991, when four-time, charismatic Democrat Gov. Edwin Edwards (no relation), who served prison time for racketeering, was running in opposition to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, the bumper stickers appearing on cars all over the state carried the slogan, “Vote for the Crook. It’s important.” Edwin Edwards won.

In 2019, Republican gubernatorial candidates are three term Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D. and electrical contractor, Eddie Rispone, one of Louisiana’s wealthiest residents, who has benefited from hiring foreign workers over locals. Rispone is reported to have dropped over $12 million of his personal money into his campaign, flooding the market with TV ads. Conservatives should be supporting U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham M.D.

This is Dr. Ralph Abraham’s dynamic campaign ad:
