One of the more intense incidents in the Bible, was where Mary was to be stoned for her perceived sexual sins…even as the men raised their hands full of heavy rocks to stone her, Christ said to let the one without sin throw the first stone. None could.
Democrat politicians really should remember that lesson as they continue to cast around for any and all ways to halt the Trump administration and destroy Trump’s creditability.
February 20, 2017 – Any of you remember this Nation of Islam imam and his past rants about killing whites? So why would politicians want to be seen aligned with the Islamic radical group? Oh right, back then Obama was “fake pres in chief”.
Even Southern Poverty Law firm one of the leftist leaning of all legal groups has labeled Nation of Islam a radical extremist, violent, hate-filled group.
The DC Caller posted in February “Elected Democrats Show Up On Stage At Nation Of Islam Convention”by Peter Hasson. State Sen. Bert Johnson and Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones both appeared on stage with Farrakhan during that convention.
Where are they now?
Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones:
Jones talked with reporters at a news conference arranged by the Arab-American Civil Rights League, which filed a lawsuit in federal court in Detroit challenging Trump’s order. She was President of City Council in 2014 when Detroit passed a Resolution Declaring Detroit A Welcoming City. According to the Detroit Free Press. Jones served as a delegate for Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.
How is that working out for you Detroit? In 2015, Detroit had its lowest number of criminal homicides in 40 years, and as of 2015, Detroit has the second highest murder rate in the United States. According to the Detroit News, Detroit is the third-highest rate in the nation behind St. Louis and Baltimore according to the FBI crime database by city. Michigan has 2nd highest Syrian refugee population in U.S. The FBI statistics also show that most Michigan cities with more than 50,000 residents saw an increase in violent crime in 2015. April 2017, Jihad Watch specifically mentioned a violent incident in reference to Khalil Abu Rayyan which should concern everyone living in Michigan and particularly Detroit. Apparently the uptick in radicalization in the area is occurring even as council members like Brenda Jones align themselves with radical groups like Nation of Islam and Farrakhan.
Senator Bert Johnson – indicted by the FBI and grand jury on charges of conspiracy and theft from a federal program. Detroit Free Press ran an article covering his list of problems. Johnson becomes the third metro Detroit lawmaker touched by criminal scandal in the past year. In February, former state Rep. Brian Banks, D-Harper Woods, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of filing false financial statements in a 2010 application for a loan. In March 2016, former state Sen. Virgil Smith, D-Detroit, was sentenced to 10 months in jail after pleading guilty to shooting at his ex-wife’s Mercedes Benz in 2015. Two other lawmakers – former state Reps. Todd Courser, R-Lapeer, and Cindy Gamrat, R-Plainwell, lost their seats in 2015 in the wake of a sex scandal and cover-up.
Example Two – Maxine Waters
In a 2012 Judicial Watch corruption press release, ranking member on the House Financial Services Committee noted helped family members make more than $1 million through business ventures with companies and causes that she has helped, according to her hometown newspaper and a under fire for skirting federal elections rules with a shady fundraising gimmick. She was charged with three counts of ethics violations in 2010. 2004 FEC letter
Apparently she never learned the lesson from those days although she was investigated (by Obama’s crew) and charges dropped because now she has been caught doing much the same thing again this time for her daughter in a federal election misconduct situation. In April 2017, FreeBeacon posted an article mentioning Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Waters, collected nearly $650,000 to date for running the operation for her mother’s campaign and a second in which another $108,000 for running a lucrative campaign operation that pulls in hundreds of thousands of dollars each election cycle, FEC filings show.
A majority of Waters’ press releases since election day have attacked Trump or a member of his administration directly.
Example Three: Corrine Brown
Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown was found guilty on 18 fraud and tax evasion charges in May 2017 in a Jacksonville federal court. The charges stemmed from accusations she illegally siphoned thousands of dollars from her charity into her own bank account for lavish parties, trips and shopping excursions.
Example Four: Chuck Schumer
In 1998 Schumer was elected to the U.S. Senate. According to DiscovertheNetworks, his candidacy was backed by the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, a Communist Party USA splinter group. In subsequent years, Schumer also received support from the Working Families Party.
In 2003, an enthusiastic Schumer welcomed and took on a tour of New York, a very interesting dignitary…care to ask who? Gateway Pundit provided the answer — Putin and his entourage with their first Russian oil company Lukoil opened a gas station in Manhattan.
According to OpenSecrets, Chuck Schumer’s biggest all time donors have always been the securities and financial giants…top five: Goldman Sachs, Citigroup Inc , Paul Weiss et al, JPMorgan Chase & Co and Credit Suisse Group. But let’s not forget that he also was caught up in having received campaign donations from Bernie Madoff and was among several politicians who returned the money.
In 2007 Schumer released the McKinsey Report which was an all-out push to have New York remain the center of the US stock and financial markets. The report wanted more deregulation and greater perks for Wall Street. Schumer and Bloomberg wrote that the U.S. did not effectively discourage “frivolous litigation” against Wall Street and they wanted to see “legal reforms” to reduce “spurious and meritless litigation.”
In July 2007, Schumer himself had stated that no George W. Bush nominee to the Supreme Court should be approved during the remaining 18 months of his presidency, “except in extraordinary circumstances.” “We should reverse the presumption of confirmation,” said Schumer at that time.
On March 12, 2012, Schumer joined Al Franken, Tom Udall, and five other Democrat senators in writing a letter to IRS officials, urging the agency to give extra scrutiny to the activities of conservative “social welfare organizations” that were applying for tax-exempt status. The letter warned of “abuse of the tax code by political groups focused on federal election activities.
Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to start quantitative easing or similar measures before Obama’s November 2012 general election.
Interestingly Schumer is one of the few lower range senators for income. Unless of course, he also made use of some of the financial tactics he learned from his securities and financial buddies.
Example Five – Democrats encourage violence and street chaos
Senator Kaine – stated on Morning Joe “What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there’s the momentum to be able to do this. And we’re not afraid of the popular outcry, we’re energized by it and that’s going to help us do our job and do it better.
Congressional Democratic leaders assembled on the steps of the Supreme Court January 30th to protest President Donald Trump’s temporary immigration ban.
May Democratic Party Convention in California dominated by Rallies, F-bombs and a raucous start.
June rallies for anti-Trump protests include several congress members…Members of Congress will address several rallies, including Texas Rep. Al Green, who has been one of the most outspoken voices calling to impeach Trump
These are a few examples out of many. Perhaps they should stop obstructing the current executive branch and start cleaning up their own problems.
