Maxine Waters: CA Should Have More Say In Primary Because Of Big Money Raised At Beverly Hills Parties (VIDEO)

This is hilarious.

 

For years now, Democrats have been claiming they want big money out of politics. Yet Maxine Waters just claimed on national television that California should have more sway in the Democrat primary process because of all the big cash generated for Democrats at fancy parties in Beverly Hills.

You couldn’t make this up.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Maxine Waters: California Should Have More Say Over Primary Process Because of Its Rich Donors and Fancy Parties

Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said that California should have more influence over the Democratic primary process because the state has so many wealthy donors.

“We have candidates who fly out to Los Angeles from everywhere to raise money,” Waters said Thursday on CNBC. “You would have two, three, four at a time in Beverly Hills having dinners and some of our contributors, who are very rich, were holding fancy parties, trying to accommodate the requests for donations and contributions.”

“The thinking is that if we are supplying tremendous dollars to candidates, we ought to have more say,” she added.

Watch the video below:

Does Waters have any idea how awful this sounds? Apparently not.

WHAT PLANET IS SHE ON? PELOSI CALLS IMPEACHMENT “BIPARTISAN”

What Planet Is She On? Pelosi Calls Impeachment "Bipartisan"

Watch the House Speaker make the outlandish claim here

  – DECEMBER 19, 2019

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made the absurd statement that the House’s impeachment proceedings were “bipartisan.”

Pelosi was referring to Democrats who voted to impeach President Trump for “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress” on Wednesday night.

“It really is interesting to see the response that we are getting, bipartisan across party lines,” Pelosi falsely stated.

Meanwhile, in reality, not one Republican voted in favor of impeachment and three Democrats even voted against it.

In fact, this is the first totally partisan presidential impeachment in U.S. history.

 

‘Abuse of power’ & ‘obstruction of Congress’: Democrats unveil charges in Trump impeachment

US House Judiciary Panel chairman Jerry Nadler has announced that two articles of impeachment will be introduced against President Donald Trump, including one for abuse of power.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Nadler said Trump abused his power by pressuring Ukraine and that he has “declared himself above accountability.”

No one, not even the president, is above the law.

The Democrat said the second article of impeachment will be for obstruction of Congress. The Judiciary Committee will meet later this week to consider the articles.

Nadler also claimed that lawmakers must “act now” because the integrity of the 2020 elections are “at stake.”

In a statement responding to the unveiling of the charges, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said impeachment was “too divisive” and Americans “don’t agree with this rank partisanship.” The Democrats, he added, are “putting on this political theater because they don’t have a viable candidate for 2020 and they know it.”

Trump is now officially the fourth US president to face impeachment and, if impeached, would be the third to face a trial in the Senate.

Democrats launched impeachment proceedings on the back of whistleblower claims that Trump had tried to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open a corruption probe into a gas company employing former VP Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. They claim that Trump offered Zelensky a quid pro quo, offering military aid in return for an investigation which could hurt Biden politically during the 2020 presidential campaign.

The first White House official to respond to the introduction of impeachment articles, Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told the Wall Street Journal that the impeachment inquiry was a “political process, not a legal process.”

On Twitter, Trump himself responded saying that the notion that he pressured Ukraine was “ridiculous” and that Nadler “knows that is not true.”

Impeachment saga: Trump won’t send EU envoy to stand before ‘totally compromised KANGAROO COURT’

The Donald Trump administration wouldn’t allow Gordon Sondland, a key figure in the Democrats’ impeachment effort, testify in the House because it would be “a kangaroo court,” the president said.

Democrat-led committees in the US House, which are in the process of collecting evidence to argue the impeachment case against President Donald Trump, wanted to hear the testimony of Gordon Sondland, Washington’s ambassador to the EU. His scheduled appearance, however, was blocked by the White House.

Trump “would love” to send Ambassador Sondland, who he has called a really nice guy, to testify, but it would hardly yield any results.

He [Sondland] would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican’s rights have been taken away, and true facts are not allowed out for the public to see.

Sondland was one of several US officials whose messages were released by the House Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Oversight Committees in an attempt to prove that President Trump pressured Ukraine in order to gain an advantage in the 2020 presidential election.

Trump cited one message in which the diplomat tells William Taylor Jr, the US ambassador in Ukraine, that Trump was “crystal clear: no quid pro quo’s of any kind.”

“That says it ALL!” the US leader said.

Antifa Calls for Black Bloc Protest at Minneapolis Trump Rally: ‘America is Cancelled’

CAP

 

Antifa has put out a call for a black bloc protest at the Minneapolis Trump rally on October 10, declaring that “America is cancelled.”

Black bloc is a tactic in which the far-left protesters dress in black from head to toe and cover their faces with black masks. The tactic is meant to make it more difficult for police to identify those who break the law during a riot.

“Trump is having a campaign rally in downtown Minneapolis. He wants to keep America great, but… AMERICA IS CANCELED,” the call to action posted on a popular Antifa website declared.

The website continues on to say, “join us to celebrate with an anti-capitalist bloc. Bring yourself, bring your friends, bring your crew and come prepared to disrupt the nightmare that is Trump.”

The Trump rally is scheduled to take place on October 10 at the Target Center. Antifa is urging other activists to “meet at the ‘America is Canceled’ banner.”

Antifa has a long history of violence and harassment of those who support the president. Just last week, they harassed an elderly couple who was attempting to attend a free speech event in Canada featuring classical liberal Dave Rubin.
