Maxine Waters: ‘I Was Right’ Something Is
Wrong with Trump — He Doesn’t Deserve
to Be President

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 12/21/2019 5:11:19 AM

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said she felt vindicated about her early calls for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Waters said, “I had began to notice him and pay attention to him during the primary campaign in the way he conducted himself. And then my staff and I did our own kind of investigatory work to the degree that we could. We saw the connection between Putin and our president and Manafort and Papadopoulos and all of these individuals who were in this little group of people who were connected in some way to the oligarchs of Russia, to the Kremlin and to Putin.

Maxine, before you point your finger at our President, please look at the shady bank dealings that you and your husband were caught using bail out funds. This woman is one of the most corrupt politicians in the House. She also runs a close second for stupidity with Hank Johnson our Guam expert.

All impeachment means is that the rest of the dem House has become as demented as Mad Max has been all along. It is hilarious to hear her describe the "investigatory" work she and her staff did as if there was any professionalism involved in her ranting and raving. She strings all the debunked lies told for the Russian inquiry together as if all the investigations disproving them had never happened and reasserts it as reality. "I wanted to sound the alarm that we better pay attention." Max's sense of alarm and seriousness is that of a baby with wet diapers wailing it's head off for attention. It isn't anything wrong with anyone else, it's that SHE is all wet. Now she has a lot of company in the House. It has become a daycare for squalling infants.

This old wigged out biddy is fooling no one with her claim that she and her staff investigated this President to the extent that they could. Yeah right. The only investigation they were involved in was the gossip around the water cooler. This woman is so ignorant she could not think her way out of a wet paper bag. If she had any rational thoughts firing off in her brain, she wouldn’t be a democrat; the party that has destroyed black potential in this country for the last five decades. Old Maxine has used the democrat political system to scam and cheat her way to notoriety and wealth. Whatever the party wants, she will parrot. It’s the way the democrat party uses blacks who stay on their plantation. Play the game, you will be rewarded. Steal, lie, and cheat from taxpayers and good things will come your way. That is why despite the democrat party’s modern day enslavement of her people, she is fine with it. How could she witness the poverty and despair in her district and fail to work on behalf of her constituents? It’s very simple. It’s easier and more lucrative to play the democrat game. Be a reliable spokesperson for their insane policies even though they are harmful for her fellow blacks and reap the rotten rewards of being used by them as their go-to person of color who will defend the democrat party to the death. She takes this job seriously too because she knows spewing hate at the President is rewarded by her party. Whatever they need, she provides. She may benefit herself but the members of her district suffer because of her insatiable greed. The fool passionately attacks this President when he is the one guy doing more for her fellow blacks than any President in modern times. This is how greed and corruption entices the weak among us to work against their own good. Maxine doesn’t want off the democrat plantation, it serves her well and to heck with her fellow blacks. She’s getting hers at their expense.

Auntie Maxie, I know it is hard, but, your party's goose is cooked. The perfect death spiral by the dims, deep state, msm, and the globalists. We saw right through your party's attempt to cover up its spying operation on the President. Spending the last three years trying to fool us into thinking that Russia and Ukraine is all about Trump just didn't work. Your second mistake was believing that the msm could do your dirty work for you and spin their lies. The old "if you say it long enough and loud enough, the people will start to believe it" schtick didn't work this time. Good work and we thank you.

We got Stupid in Washington. Its an embarrassment. There was another article up on Fox news where she says we have to remove Trump to prevent him from inviting Putin to the Whitehouse. Maxine Waters is the poster child for term limits. She has long overstayed her welcome. She will likely never be voted out, and it is equally unlikely she will be removed from office due to corruption.

Since when does the concept of 'deserving' to be President have anything to do with being President? The people voted, the electoral system functioned the way it was designed, and he won the election. That's the same reason Maxine still has her seat in Congress -- she was elected by the people of her district. She 'deserves' her position far less than PDJT 'deserves' his. In other places or earlier times somebody as addled by dementia and severe stupidity as Maxine could expect to be removed (say, suffocated in her sleep, pushed off a high rooftop, or simply abandoned in the wilderness).

The idea of a “decade in review” article at the end of 2019 is a bit of “fake news.” Technically, the current decade does not end until December 31, 2020. In that spirit, it is worth looking back at the past ten years through the “fake news” lens. These were years in which the mainstream media used false allegations and biased reporting to suppress conservative voices; they were also the first years in which, thanks to Andrew Breitbart, we began to resist them. 2010: Tea Party “N-word.” The media’s claimed, based on false allegations by House Democrats, that Tea Party protesters called civil rights icon Rep.

Rep.

There have long been questions about why it was necessary for McCain to pass Steele’s anti-Trump dossier to Comey on December 9, 2016, several weeks after the November 2016 presidential election. By then, Steele had already met numerous times with FBI agents to provide them with his controversial reports.

Pete Buttigieg has tried to carve out a niche among Democratic presidential hopefuls as the candidate who is comfortable talking about religion. Unfortunately, he’s only comfortable trying to use religion as a means of beating conservatives, especially religious ones, over the head. This annoying penchant was on display again in Buttigieg’s Christmas message. He tweeted: Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee. No matter where or how we celebrate, merry Christmas. Buttigieg’s message struck me as fake history.

So I haven’t posted a tweet in nine months. How am I doing? I’m still in recovery. Over the previous 10 years, I had written 180,000 tweets. Yes, I said 180,000. That’s 18,000 a year, 1,500 a month. I was putting out an average of 50 tweets a day — while holding down a full-time job editing a magazine, with two firm writing deadlines every week, and raising three children with a wife who works full-time. How was that even possible? Well, I’ve always written fast. And for much of my life, I’ve felt like a frustrated would-be stand-up comic.

The Trump Administration and the Republican Party got a troubling sign Christmas week that all of their number might not be willing to stand together come an impeachment trial. Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Tuesday told KTUU-TV in Anchorage she was “disturbed” that her leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, would be coordinating with the White House in the coming trial – assuming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will send over the articles of impeachment passed by the House earlier this month to the Senate. Widely viewed as the quintessential “Republican In Name Only,” the Senate Energy and Natural Resources chairwoman

Rosemary Collyer is the presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (the “FISC”). FISC is the judicial body that issues surveillance warrants to our intelligence agencies, principally the FBI, authorizing the interception of electronic communications of people located in the United States who are agents of foreign governments or who have connections to foreign terrorist organizations. On December 17, Judge Collyer issued a FISC opinion that was highly unusual because it was unclassified and made public. The Horowitz report said that the FBI intentionally misled the court by using incomplete and bogus information as the basis for it to issue FISA warrants against one-time Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
