Seems Even Democrats Can Pick Up On The Fact The Russia Russia Russia 24/7 Narrative Wasn’t Working

Or maybe they decided they had enough Republicans banging that Drum for them ? Either way Chuck Schumer outlined their new outreach to the voters they had previously betrayed.

Declaring “old-fashioned capitalism has broken down to the detriment of consumers” and “Adam Smith has lost his way amidst these big corporations,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and other congressional Democrats traveled to a red pocket of purple Virginia today to spell out their new agenda.

Schumer, who was joined by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at Rose Hill Park in Berryville, Va., remarked that the town near the West Virginia border “looks like parts of New York state.”

“Too many families in America feel like the rules of the economy are rigged against them. They feel like they’re getting a raw deal, and they’re right. They’re almost powerless to change them. We are here today to tell the people of Berryville and the working people of America: someone has your back,” he said.

“American families deserve a better deal so this country works for everyone again, not just the elites, not just the special interests. Today, Democrats start presenting that better deal to the American people.”

I have to give Schumer credit there’s few people in the world that can lie so easily as he can. I’d love to give him an all time award for this but the media doesn’t call him out so he loses points on difficulty.

Lets take a look at his premise eh ? “Old fashioned capitalism has broken down”, it’s like Cecile Richards complaining the family and personal responsibility have broken down in this country, or Jeffrey Dahmer complaining he can’t find dinner companions. Well Senator Schumer if you hadn’t spent your entire career and  having your party make  government intrude into every aspect of American life including deliberately destroying businesses  (“Were going to kill a lot of coal jobs” maybe capitalism would still be working.

“Too many families in America feel like the rules of the economy are rigged against them.”, this comes from a man who was instrumental in Obamacare being adopted,  voted for No Child Left Behind, voted for the Leahy amendment that would undermine religious freedom, and tried to shove an unlimited amnesty through the congress . But, forget about his votes, this is the guy who’s party thought it was alright to attack plumbers for making too much money and over the past 8 years did everything they could to destroy small business and the family.

As I said earlier, he is a world class liar, but he gets no points for difficulty because the press doesn’t challenge him no matter how obvious the untruth is.

 


California And New York To Allow Illegal Immigrants To Be Officers Of The Court

If you’re not a lawyer you might not be aware that lawyers have to be found of good character and fitness before they can practice their profession mater of fact one of the strikes against becoming a lawyer is a criminal record

Criminal record. Grads with a criminal record are typically not terribly surprised when the bar takes a close look at their character. What is surprising is how many of these grads have failed to be proactive about rebuilding their reputations. In many cases, it’s possible to overcome a criminal record, but you may face an uphill climb.

Actions speak so much louder than words. When you are standing before the Character and Fitness Committee, you will want evidence to support your claim that you are a good citizen. If you were building your case for admission today, what evidence would you point to?

If you’ve had a brush with the law, it’s important that you do more than simply stick to the straight and narrow. You need to actively seek to make a difference in the world. Volunteer whenever you can, whether it’s doing research for Legal Aid or serving in a soup kitchen. Not only will service make you feel better about yourself, but it may well provide you with positive references from respected members of the community.

You see this is one of the reasons I became an engineer instead of a lawyer, I can’t formulate how you can be a “Good Citizen” while  committing an ongoing crime and not being a citizen. Apparently the lawyers of New York and California are more adept at their reasoning than I am.

California and New York will become the first states to allow illegal immigrants to practice law and be sworn in as lawyers. In so doing, they will grant the privilege of upholding the law and defending the U.S. Constitution to people who have intentionally violated the rules, and who have no right whatsoever to be here. One such lawyer is Lizbeth Mateo. Born in Mexico, Mateo and her family illegally crossed the border when she was 14 and have been residing in California ever since. In 2013, Mateo returned to Mexico knowing she had no legal visa to come back and, as part of what became known as the Bring Them Home Campaign, returned to the U.S. border with eight other children and demanded unauthorized reentry into the U.S. — which she was granted. Having graduated from Santa Clara University School of Law and working jobs that required the use of a stolen social security number, Mateo now spends her time as an immigration lawyer “preparing legal strategies to help undocumented immigrants stay in the country” — all while flaunting her own undocumented status.

Quote of the Day

It has become a sarcastic proverb that a thing must be true if you saw it in a newspaper. That is the opinion intelligent people have of that lying vehicle in a nutshell. But the trouble is that the stupid people — who constitute the grand overwhelming majority of this and all other nations — do believe and are moulded and convinced by what they get out of a newspaper, and there is where the harm lies.
