Maxine Waters: ‘GOP afraid of a strong black woman’

 

Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the Republican Party was scared of her being the chair of the Financial Services Committee because she is a “strong, black woman.”

When asked about a Republican congressman’s comments saying she would harass President Donald Trump with investigations, Waters said, “That’s the opposition talking about what would happen if this strong, black woman Maxine Waters is the chair of the Financial Services Committee. They’ve never seen anybody like me before.

There’s never been a woman in the history of this country that’s been the chairperson of the Financial Services Committee, and certainly never a black woman. And so they send out these dog whistles to their constituents to get them fired up about the possibility of what Maxine Waters might do.”

Move it up to about 4:50 if you want to avoid her rant on Trump and CA forest fires among other things.

Pelosi Thinks “BUSH” Is President? and Waters Thinks “Putin invaded Korea???

Encore time for President Donald Trump! Vote Vote Vote!

 

This is why we are great again! Vote, Vote, Vote.. This is the big day. Let’s have an encore with a big night tonight counting all of those Red Votes. Pass the video along. A reminder of just who Trump is and what he stands for.

 

Remember this one? Let’s give the special snowflakes an encore.

Maxine Waters will Chair Financial Services Committee – get out and vote!

 

I have been trying to think of something to post today that would be a motivator for Tuesday’s election. I looked through clips of Thomas Paine, John Adams, military bands, you have the drift. But of course, there is nothing more terrifying than the thought that Maxine Waters would be chair of the Financial Services Committee.Yes, I think this clip ought to do it.

One of the most corrupt politicians in congress.

The United States House Committee on Financial Services (also referred to as the House Banking Committee) is the committee of the United States House of Representatives that oversees the entire financial services industry, including the securities, insurance, banking, and housing industries. The Committee also oversees the work of the Federal Reserve, the United States Department of the Treasury, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and other financial services regulators.

 

Speaking this week at Black Women Network Breakfast, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told voters that payback is coming if the Democrats take back the House.

Waters told the attendees how “important” the upcoming midterm election is.

 

 

 

“First of all, if we take back the House, most of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus will be chairs of the committees of the Congress of the United States of America,” Waters told the group. I will be the first African-American, the first woman to chair the powerful Financial Services Committee. That’s all of Wall Street. That’s all the insurance companies, that’s all the banks. And so, of course, the CEOs of the banks now are saying, ‘What can we do to stop Maxine Waters? Because if she gets in, she’s going to give us a bad time.’”

She continued, “I have not forgotten you foreclosed on our houses. I have not forgotten that you undermined our communities. I have not forgotten that you sold us those exotic products, had us sign on the dotted line for junk, and for mess that we could not afford. And in doing that, I have people who are homeless who have never gotten back into a home. What am I going to do to you? What I am going to do to you is fair. I’m going to do to you what you did to us.”

Eleven States have formed compact to pool electoral votes to country’s popular votes

 

You hear the drumbeat….Hillary Clinton blamed the electoral college among many things for her loss. Now she and others such as Cortex are out on the same old trail. Do away with the electoral college.

What I am here to tell you is that we are well underway of doing away with the electoral college with not so much as amending the Constitution. How? Let me give you a way back post.

Forget the 12th Amendment which demands the Electoral College. Instead form an interstate compact:

Additionally, the framers of the Constitution were attempting to prevent too much power from being directly put into the hands of the public. They were consistently wary of any one party having too much power, and there was no difference between a tyranny of one individual and a tyranny of the majority, in their opinion. The Electoral College system was designed so as to nullify some of the potential for the tyranny of the majority by making population less important in the whole of the Electoral College process. Keep Reading

Now the new wrinkle. Give the State’s electoral votes to the Presidential candidate who wins the country’s popular vote thus insuring the demise of the electoral college and overriding the Constitution.

The Connecticut state Senate on Saturday voted in favor of a measure to give the state’s electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.

The move puts the state in a position to become the 11th, in addition to Washington, D.C., to join an interstate compact to pool their electoral college votes for the candidate who wins the popular vote.

The state Senate voted 21-14 in favor of the bill, with the support of three GOP lawmakers, The Guardian reported. The measure passed the state House on a 77-73 vote last month. Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy is expected to sign the legislation, according to the report.

With the addition of Connecticut’s seven electoral votes, the compact would have 172 in total. For the compact to go into effect nationally, it would need 270 electoral votes – the number needed for a candidate to win the presidency. More at The Hill

Easy to see how a few States with major Democrat numbers could rule Fly-Over country.

 

 

 

No need to change the constitution. Sounds to me that it’s time to take this action to court and have it adjudicated.

Democrat candidate Cortez calls the system a ‘shadow of slavery’s power’ after the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Dinesh D’Souza reacts on ‘Fox & Friends.’

 

 

Hint: We are a constitutional republic, not a democratic republic.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic socialist hoping to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District, declared over the weekend that the Electoral College is a racist American relic that must be abolished.

“It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic,” the 28-year-old Boston University graduate tweeted to her 881,000 followers Saturday afternoon.

From an earlier B-ville post:

 

What’s it all about? Kavanaugh or an Obama Phone?

 

In the future this will be known as the week that was. What’s it all about Alfie? Kavanaugh? Or more of the swamp?

Great comments yesterday on my post:

….’1000s and 1000s and 1000s of Trump supports at everyone of his rallies.’

Surely we are on the side of being fired up. Yes the deplorables – red bloodied Americans “get’ what this Kavanaugh issue is about. It has nothing to do with Kavanaugh but for the heart and soul of our Republic. The Constitution.  We love our God and Guns. Independence. Less government interference. The Deep State beckons.

 

Then:

….but the cities….festering with their mouths open for another “I want me an Obama Phone” and much much more.

Another month or so we will know.

Jeff Flake blocks judicial nominees over tariffs

 

Jeff Flake has been threatening approval of judicial candidates over everything from Cuba travel to tariffs. Jeff has been a busy man, making is rounds dissing Trump every chance he can over just about everything and anything while we haven’t been paying attention. Apparently he can block nominees and the GOP are going to let him do it.

 

 

Sen. Jeff Flake has gone public with his threat to stall judicial nominations seeking action to rebuff President Donald Trump on tariffs.

It comes more than a week after the Arizona Republican first held up the nomination of Britt Grant to be a judge on the Atlanta-based 11th Circuit Court of Appeals at the Judiciary Committee.

“We’ve approved a number of judges. That is important,” Flake said Sunday. “But, Article I — the Congress, Article II — the executive, are important as well.”

“I do think that unless we can actually do something other than just approving the president’s executive calendar, his nominees, judges, that we have no reason to be there,” Flake said. “So, I think myself and a number of senators, at least a few of us will stand up and say let’s not move any more judges until we get a vote for example on tariffs.”

Flake was asked about his procedural maneuvering  during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, during which he was more direct than he was with reporters last week. The senator had been particularly vague about the nature of his objections.

Snip….

The only other circuit seat on the agenda Thursday was the nomination of David Porter for the Philadelphia-based appeals court. Porter was appearing for the first time, and the nomination was being held over for the customary one week. Given Flake’s public statements on ABC, Porter will likely be stalled as well.

The 41 Republicans who killed the Goodlatte Immigration Reform Bill

 

In spite of the gnashing of teeth over the jacket our First Lady had on with the infamous statement: “I don’t really care do you?” which really sums up no doubt how she feels, the world did continue.

Look, as well, it is sad to lose Charles Krauthammer, but enough already Fox. Hours of non-stop tribute, I get it. He is your pal. I am sad too.

Now this morning we are back at the tribute as I thrash about trying to find something to post about that isn’t totally depressing.

OK.  Let’s look at the latest epic fail of GOP leadership as Ryan flails about doing his best to destroy the party on his way out the door. Paul, don’t let the door hit you whatever as you go out the door. You should have resigned as soon as you decided to hang it up to make the really big bucks.

So here voters can check their Rep to see if they were a “Nay” for further reference, and why not give him/her a jingle either way.

The House voted down an immigration reform bill sponsored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., Thursday that would have dramatically increased border security and provided a pathway to citizenship for roughly 700,000 of the 1.8 million so-called “Dreamers” living in the United States.

The bill — the more conservative option of two pieces of immigration legislation originally scheduled to be voted on this week — was defeated by a final vote of 193-231. No Democrats voted for the bill, and these 41 Republicans voted nay:

 House Vote #282
 Jun 21, 2018 2:11 p.m.
 Failed 193/231
On Passage of the Bill in the House
This bill would make sweeping changes to laws governing legal and illegal immigration. For legal immigration, it would end the diversity program and chain migration by eliminating the visa lottery green card program and green card programs for relatives other than spouses and minor children. And it would increase immigration …

Following Thursday’s failure, leadership elected to postpone the vote on the second bill — authored by Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and other members of leadership — first until Friday and then again until next week. H/T: Washington Examiner
