Biden Campaign Gaffes—Truth over Facts
Kamala Harris did not grow up poor. She did not grow up bused to a better school district because where she had to grow up was horrible. She’s the daughter of two PhDs, folks. She is not a child born on the wrong side of the light-rail tracks. ~Rush Limbaugh

Abuse of Power:
From Real Clear Politics:
“These defenders of the old guard are sliming Attorney General Bill Barr, who heads the investigation into their actions . . . Barr won’t be deterred. He did not return for a second stint as AG to pad his résumé or protect Donald Trump. He returned to clean out the Augean Stables.”
“The skies are growing dark and increasingly ominous for dirty officials at the top of Obama-era law enforcement and intelligence agencies,” Charles Lipson writes in RealClearPolitics. “These defenders of the old guard are sliming Attorney General Bill Barr, who heads the investigation into their actions . . . Barr won’t be deterred. He did not return for a second stint as AG to pad his résumé or protect Donald Trump. He returned to clean out the Augean Stables.”
The initial evidence will come from two sources: a major report by DoJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the steady declassification of underlying documents by AG Barr, who was given that task by the president. Barr needed that authority because the FBI and intelligence community are resisting disclosure with all their institutional power. They fear years of abuse will be exposed.
These are very serious charges, and, if proven, serious crimes. What makes them worse — far worse — is that they may well be connected to each other. If they are, they would represent a high-level conspiracy by government officials, appointed by one party and directed at political opponents during and after an election.
Now, we need to know if the U.S. government itself worked secretly and illegally to prevent his election and, when that failed, to damage his new presidency. That conspiracy would be equally serious, and for the same reasons. It needs to be rooted out, exposed, and punished.
From Rush Limbaugh:
He didn’t add to anything. He continued the injustice of all of this. “If we had evidence the president did not commit a crime, if we had confidence the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” That’s not what you do in this country. If you have evidence he did commit a crime, you say so, but you can’t say so and you haven’t said so and you won’t say so because there isn’t any.
You [Robert Mueller]
And you still don’t have any evidence! And yet you do an eight-minute little press conference today with no questions where you imply the president did it?
But you can’t find any evidence. And so then you turn it over to Congress. That’s what everybody heard: The Constitution has a remedy for prosecutorial paralysis. When prosecutors can’t prosecute then Congress takes over.

[Declassification to reveal] Potential target issues could include:
(1) an investigation of Uranium One;
(2) an investigation of the Clinton Foundation; and,
(3) an investigation of matters related to payments to Iran.
Treasury would come into play with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS); which was part of the Uranium One process and also included the Dept. of Energy. Additional related matters could include George Papadopoulos $10k (Treasury); and The Clinton Foundation. [Obviously this is supposition, but there are not too many alternate investigative pathways for intelligence within Treasury and Energy.]
Mueller says no evidence of collusion nor is there any evidence he is innocent and that is all the proof Nadler and the Congress need to move ahead on impeachment. Political Cartoon by A.F. Branco ©2019.

As reported on OneNewsNow, both Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib recently condemned Israel when it responded to yet another massive rocket attack on Israeli civilians by Hamas.
Both women, who are freshman lawmakers, have created problems for Democratic leaders who have criticized their comments, or made excuses for their behavior, even while fellow lawmakers have criticized the criticism.
Tlaib, who is Palestinian, is now making headlines after making the claim that her Palestinian ancestors provided a “safe haven” for Jews after World War II and the Holocaust, when they gave up their land “and some lost their lives” to Jews.
But a fact-checking article at The Washington Examiner ripped Tlaib’s claims apart, pointing out that Jews already occupied the land over the objections of Arab neighbors.
The story by Phillip Klein also pointed out how Muhammad Amin al-Husayni (pictured above), the Palestinian leader during World War II, openly allied with Adolph Hitler to recruit Muslim soldiers and to broadcast pro-German, anti-Jewish propaganda to Arab listeners.
Yet the congresswoman told an interviewer she has a “calming feeling” when she thinks of how Palestinians helped Jews after World War II.
