A staff memo released by Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) reveals that the Federal Bureau of Investigation simply cannot get it together for investigating the Clintons’ criminal missteps. Per the The Hill, the memo alleges that the FBI (under disgraced former director James Comey, of course) failed to pursue “highly classified” evidence to complete the Clinton email scandal investigation despite it being referred to as a “necessary” part of the investigation. Making matters worse, they then stonewalled Congress about it for more than a year. The Clintons win again.

August in Washington can be the political equivalent of an elephant graveyard: One good rain can wash away the dirt and expose the bones of scandals past.
And this August did not disappoint. Thanks to the relentless investigative work of Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), we are learning that the Hillary Clinton email case may not really be settled.
A staff memo updating the two senators’ long-running probe discloses that the FBI — the version run in 2016 by the now-disgraced and fired James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok — failed to pursue access to “highly classified” evidence that could have resolved important questions.
Not to be outdone by upstart socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), 2020 contender Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) has proposed a staggering $16 TRILLION Green New Deal of his own not merely to tackle “climate change” but social justice as well. According to the New York Times, the proposed Sanders’ bill would declare “climate change a national emergency; envisions building new solar, wind and geothermal power sources across the country; and commits $200 billion to help poor nations cope with climate change.” It also mandates ZERO fossil fuels by 2050… all paid for by “making the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share.” Something tells us that Americans won’t take kindly to checking Facebook on wooden smartphones.
Here’s more from Town Hall…
Despite not voting for the Green New Deal in the senate this past winter, Vermont Democratic Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a Green New Deal of his own on Thursday as part of his 2020 campaign platform. The price tag for the global warming defeating -racial injustice combatting – pro-socialism on steroids catch-all bill is a whopping 16 trillion dollars and zero cents.
As noted by the New York Times, the proposed bill by Sanders would declare “climate change a national emergency; envisions building new solar, wind and geothermal power sources across the country; and commits $200 billion to help poor nations cope with climate change.”
The Democratic Party is desperately trying to rule-rig veteran Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) out of the running for 2020 … all because she dared to challenge their black, female socialist candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) in the last round of debates. According to a Real Clear Politics report, she actually ranks HIGHER in the polls than those for whom the DNC is rolling out the red carpet, namely Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, and Andrew Yang. Apparently, though, Gabbard didn’t meet the mark in their “approved” polls. No true Scotsman, anyone?

Iconoclastic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard did the unforgiveable in the eyes of the hidebound Democratic Party establishment: She knocked down one their favorites, Kamala Harris.
Because right after this incident from the last debate:
Now, through the miracle of rule-rigging, the Democratic establishment has maneuvered to exact a price from her: No appearance at the next Democratic debate. No more taking down the next favorite.
Leftists everywhere are in for a shock now that the standard of hypocrisy has been revealed for freshman lawmaker Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). According to a Democratic congressional aide, AOC isn’t serving the people of her district. “She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” a Democratic congressional aide told the outlet. “Critics of Ocasio-Cortez suggest making constituents play phone tag is proof that she’s more show pony than workhorse,” the New York Post chimed in. This all sounds vaguely familiar…Animal Farm anyone?

A Democrat congressional aide slammed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in an interview this week, saying that the 29-year-old former bartender has no plans to serve the American people.
The comments came in a report from The New York Post about how Ocasio-Cortez’s office blows people off and does not answer phone calls — a claim that The Daily Wire can definitely confirm.
“Critics of Ocasio-Cortez suggest making constituents play phone tag is proof that she’s more show pony than work horse,” The New York Post wrote.
Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is ratcheting up the rhetoric against the vanguard of our constitutional republic, referring to the Electoral College as a “scam” and even alleging it is racist. “The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown. Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our votes are counted equally.” Of course, the deranged millennial offered her not-so-scholarly opinions through Instagram complete with the hashtag #FactsAreFacts. Let’s recall that the Democrats were the chief opponents of the Civil Rights Act. Some facts are more factual than others.
Here’s more from Fox News…
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took aim at the Electoral College, calling it a “scam” and suggesting it disenfranchises people of color.
In an Instagram story posted Monday, Ocasio-Cortez began by joking that she saw “many votes” while driving through the desert, which she sarcastically referred to as the “electoral college.”
She then cited several excerpts from a New York Magazine article that refutes arguments in favor of the Electoral College, telling Republicans that the system “is, in fact, a scam.”
“The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our votes are counted equally.”
The New York Times has just been thoroughly exposed as the biased “Fake News” outlet we already knew them to be, where editors are determined to bash President Trump to please its liberal readers. “What I’m saying is that our readers and some of our staff cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden,” executive editor Dean Banquet says in a leaked transcript of a staff meeting. That same meeting also reveals the Times trying to find “new angles” to attack President Trump… you know like the “Assailing Hate But Not Guns” rewrite of a headline that wasn’t left enough. So much for that right-wing conspiracy theory of “left-wing media bias.”
Here’s more from Fox News…
“The Five” remarked on the controversy at a staff meeting held at The New York Times on new ways to cover President Trump.
“They are not journalists, they are partisan activists,” said Jesse Watters in light of the transcript of a newspaper town-hall meeting published by Slate.
He added that the Times admitted they couldn’t take out Trump, and they aren’t that influential.
“What I’m saying is that our readers and some of our staff cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden,” executive editor Dean Banquet says in the transcript.
Apparently, Joe Biden prefers fiction over facts regarding his own life story according to a list of six life story lies told by the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate compiled by the Washington Examiner. Biden’s top whoppers include claiming that his helicopter was “forced down” near Osama bin Laden’s lair along “the superhighway of terror between Pakistan and Afghanistan” AFTER lying about being “shot at” during the Iraq War. The career politician has also claimed humble origins, including mining for coal in the hills of Pennsylvania, as well as an activist role during sit-ins to fight segregation, which has been debunked by the black football teammate whom Biden said he was helping at the time. The left has had some fun calling Trump a liar, but they’re okay with a few bold fibs from Biden…because he’s Biden.

Joe Biden claimed twice recently that he met with Parkland, Florida, shooting survivors when he was vice president, despite the fact that he was already out of office when the attack took place. His campaign said Biden misspoke and was referring to a different meeting he had after the Sandy Hook shooting. But the flub was reminiscent of Biden’s past misstatements and his tendency to embellish biographical details.
In 1988, Biden was forced to drop out of the presidential race after he was found to have exaggerated his academic record, plagiarized a law school essay, and used quotes from other politicians in his speeches without attribution. But these are not the only questionable claims Biden has made. Here are six other times Biden was caught embellishing his biography.
According to a Customs and Border Protection official, border apprehensions have plummeted for the second month in a row offering evidence that President Trump’s threats to tariff Mexico into oblivion unless they help secure the border are working. “It’s absolute proof,” CBP Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez told “Fox & Friends.” Perez continued: “Unquestionably, an agreement with the government of Mexico that was literally unprecedented by way of the degree of cooperation, the commitment they’ve made, to enforce and go down in numbers with their National Guard and law enforcement along their border … [with] Guatemala.” #artofthedeal

Speaking on Fox & Friends on Thursday, Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez said border apprehensions have plunged for the second straight month, and that the Trump administration’s deal with Mexico to help slow the flood of immigrants to the southern border is working.
Perez stated, “It’s absolute proof. Unquestionably, an agreement with the government of Mexico that was literally unprecedented by way of the degree of cooperation, the commitment they’ve made, to enforce and go down in numbers with their National Guard and law enforcement along their border … [with] Guatemala.” He continued, “Interior enforcement up, as well as enforcement along our southern border — that coupled with the collaboration with the migrant protection protocol and some of the work that we’ve been doing with the northern triangle countries — all combined, you’ve seen those numbers drop now in two months in a row.”
A new survey commissioned by the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future found that nearly two-thirds of swing-state voters prefer lower healthcare costs over universal health care coverage, or otherwise think ObamaCare 1.0 and possibly a future “2.0” Medicare-for-All overhauls of our healthcare is a terrible idea. The survey also found that 46 percent of American voters regard health care as the most critical issue with the economy coming in second at 40 percent and another 40 percent citing immigration. The states surveyed included: Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Ohio – all states that the Left cannot afford to lose but whose candidates are nearly all touting a healthcare coup by Big Government. Good news for President Trump.

Nearly two-thirds of swing-state voters favor lowering healthcare costs over providing universal health care, according to a poll released Thursday.
A survey released Thursday conducted by Locust Street Group commissioned by the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future found that 64 percent of American battleground state voters prefer lowering healthcare costs over ensuring universal health care. In contrast, only 36 percent of swing-state voters back universal coverage over reducing healthcare costs.
The battleground states include Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Ohio, all crucial states for presidential elections and congressional races.
During a rally with supporters in New Hampshire, President Trump promised unequivocal support for the Second Amendment. “We can’t make it harder for good, solid, law-abiding citizens to protect themselves,” President Trump argued. “We will always uphold the right to self-defense, and we will always uphold the Second Amendment.” He also made clear his stance that “It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger. It’s the person that pulls the trigger.” Unlike the Left which just wants to confiscate guns, President Trump is focused on improving mental healthcare resources and getting to the root of the problem in the wake of the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings. We don’t expect any gun-grabbing bills to get signed into law in the near future.

President Trump on Thursday told supporters in New Hampshire that he would “always uphold the Second Amendment” and suggested that the construction of new mental health facilities would help curb gun violence.
The president lamented the lack of mental health institutions as he spoke about the need to keep guns away from people with mental illnesses. The comments come as the White House and Congress examine new gun laws after recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas.
“It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger. It’s the person that pulls the trigger,” Trump said, earning a roar of approval from the crowd in Manchester.
