RELEASE THE MEMO

In a letter sent to the House Intelligence Committee, a coalition of 65 Republican lawmakers demanded Friday that a classified memo about the Obama administration’s abuse of the FISA warrant system be made available to the American public. The memo, which was brought to national attention last week, reportedly contains what some say is the smoking gun that will show exactly how far the Obama Justice Department bent the law so that authorities could spy on the Trump campaign in the later months of the election. One congressman even went as far as to suggest that the information contained in the memo could bring about the end of Robert Mueller’s investigation, full stop.

The House voted last week to make the memo available to the entire Congressional body, and now lawmakers want to extend that transparency to the nation.

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee voted against making the memo available to the House at large and they are taking the same stance on its public release. In comments made last week, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said the memo was nothing more than political propaganda. There is obviously no reason that a set of political “talking points” should remain classified, now is there? No, so there is no reason not to release this memo to the public, is there, Mr. Schiff? Unless, of course, you are lying and there’s something in that memo you’re desperate to keep hidden behind closed doors.

Democrats can see the writing on the wall. The Russia investigation is collapsing before their very eyes. All they can do now is postpone the inevitable. If we apply enough public pressure, they won’t be able to do that for long.

Did you know that pine nuts come from pine cones? Pine nuts are an edible seed, found inside pine cones. You may already have eaten pine nuts without even knowing it. One of the main ingredients in pesto sauce is pine nuts!

Chuck Schumer Just Lost The Shutdown, Bigly

It’s amazing how quickly Democrats lost the shutdown battle before it was even really joined. Instead of a unifying moment, this shutdown got Democrats nothing but a feeling of dismay from their progressive base, who now view them as not being willing to go to the mattresses on the issue.

On this shutdown, Democratic rhetoric was hampered by factors: first, while they agree with wanting to resolve the issue, outside the hardcore Democratic base, voters don’t particularly have as much of a pressing interest in the priorities related to DACA; second, the Democrats were using abbreviations like “short term CR” and “CHIP” that voters do not understand; and third, the likelihood of emerging with a “big win” from this shutdown was very unlikely, particularly given that the normally fractious House Republicans remained united behind Paul Ryan in his hardline approach. The shutdown now looks less like a bold, energizing stand and more like a fit of pique.

This was a mistake by humer and the Democratic Leadership. The outcome of this shutdown was never going to be a big win to energize their base (already sufficiently energized). And had it continued, it could have damaged their ability to win over independents, who may be more sueptible to voting based on the country’s economic success heading into the midterms.
humer’s message in 2013 that if Democrats shut down the government over immigration it would be ‘a politics of idiocy’ came back and bit him right square in the butt.

Look for a new Democrat Leader in both the Senate and House after the Mid Term Elections in November.

KGB Tactics Were Used on Trump by the Democrats

For what seems like an eternity, the left has pushed the narrative that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia over the 2016 election. It’s all we heard, and are still hearing from the mainstream media and liberal talking heads. Ever since this narrative has been pushed, Trump has continually called it “fake news,” saying no collusion took place.

Now, a classified memo has been given to members of Congress that may just prove Trump has been telling the truth all along.

The memo was revealed Thursday when Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee voted to release it to all members of the House. It was then that eyes began to open to how bad the corruption truly was in the Obama administration’s Department of Justice.

Fox News reported that GOP lawmakers are now demanding that this four page memo be released to the public, because it “reveals alleged United States government surveillance abuses…” that are “described by lawmakers as ‘shocking,’ ‘troubling’ and ‘alarming,’ with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.”

One source told Fox News that the memo “details the Intelligence Committee’s oversight work for the FBI and Justice, including the controversy over unmasking and FISA surveillance. ”

Apparently the memo also describes the abuses of this surveillance when it came to investigating the Trump campaign over so called Russia collusion.

Republican members of Congress are not happy about it.

Rep. Mark Meadows from North Carolina told Fox News, “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

“The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency,” Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz told the news channel. “There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy.”

Moreover, Iowa Rep. Steve King said the memo was “sickening,” and “worse than Watergate.”

So, could this put a halt to Robert Mueller’s investigation? Maybe. Another Judiciary Committee Member, Ron DeSantis said, “The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation.”

We know that Mueller’s investigation is full of anti-Trumpers, and that Mueller worked under the Obama DOJ. So did he have a hand in this “KGB-like” surveillance? Only time will tell. That’s why we need the memo.

Because, according to a report by investigative journalist Sara Carter, this memo also contains information about the now infamous fake “Trump dossier” that alleges Trump colluded with the Russians. Again, we need the memo.

DeSantis agrees. ‘While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth,” he wrote on Twitter.

So how bad is it? “I think that this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail" stated Congressman Matt Gaetz.

These are some pretty big allegations. If that really is the case, this memo absolutely should be made public.

What everyone is missing is that the Democrats actually want this to happen. They want this bomb to go off. So, on top of voting against middle class tax relief and betting against the American worker with their opposition to Trump’s tax reform package, they also want to torpedo Capitol Hill as well.

It’s quite simple. Republicans want to keep the government open, they have a funding bill, they want to pass it and then work on an immigration resolution.

It's hard to spin that as anything other than a 'Schumer Shutdown,' as Republicans are aptly labeling it on social media. Why is the Senate Minority Leader promising to kill a bill that would keep the government open and give years-long stability to a healthcare program he believes is vital? Because of pressure from his left-wing base over DACA. Put bluntly, Senate Democrats are prepared to shut down the government on behalf of illegal immigrants.

I Guess it doesn’t matter if our politicians handcuff our military, can’t secure our borders or simply can’t explain how they spent billions of dollars’ worth of our tax money, the push is always to give them more power and control. The federal government is a tick and the bigger it gets, the less blood there is for the American people and less chance our nation has of succeeding over the long haul.
