Democrats Slam Nikki Haley for $52K Curtains. There’s Just One Problem.

Published

on

Leftists have found yet another issue to use as an outlet for their never ending supply of fake outrage, this time setting their sights on Nikki Haley and how much the curtains in her home cost.

You’re probably wondering why the cost of her curtains is anyone else’s business. We’re wondering the same thing. Must be a slow news day with a lack of material to be angry about.

“Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701,” the Times’ title reads. That was enough for Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu to call for “an oversight hearing on State Department spending on Nikki Haley and her deputy.”

Left-wing activist David Hogg also got in on the anti-Haley action, writing a mini-letter on behalf of “America” condemning the ambassador for having the “audacity to misappropriate thousands of tax dollars for your own lavish lifestyle” while there are children starving in America. “Resign immediately,” “America” demanded (h/t Twitchy).

But, as Haley’s office told the Times in its deceptively titled article, there’s just one big problem: She had nothing to do with those pricey curtains. They were ordered back in 2016, approved by Obama’s State Department. Here’s the line buried in the sixth paragraph of the article on “Ms. Haley’s curtains”:

A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said.

Despite this admission, the Times repeatedly portrays the curtains and the residence as “Ms. Haley’s” and puts the onus on the Trump State Department instead of Obama’s, which approved, ordered and allocated funds for the curtains.

So basically, the only reason everyone is so up in arms over these curtains is just because they need yet another excuse to attack a member of the GOP. Again, must be a really slow news day if this is all these folks can find to complain about.

After all, the left are masters at finding reasons to complain.

Beto Seemingly Calls for WAR Over Mueller Report Secrecy

The left just had to find some way to make the idea of transparency seem sensational, didn’t they?

Published

Beto O'Rourke

As the nation patiently awaits the findings of the Special Counsel report, a debate is raging. On both sides of the aisle, we are hearing that transparency is key.  Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General and self-proclaimed “heat shield” for Robert Mueller, has expressed his concerns over tarnishing the reputations of those not accused of a crime. The rest of America seems fairly well convinced, and rightly so, that there should be unfettered access to the report. And while this is undoubtedly a widely felt sentiment, the radical left just had to find a way to make it seem sensational. Cue 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke: “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are not made public, saying, “This is an unprecedented attack on this country and on our democracy, and we are owed the facts. And if we do not receive them, 243 years in, there’s nothing that guarantees us a 244th.” O’Rourke is undoubtedly suggesting that a Civil War or revolution could take place over something that everyone already wants. Not only have a number of democrats parroted the “everyone should get to see everything” line, but they’ve done so in complete agreement with Trump-appointed Attorney General Bill Barr. For Beto to go nuclear in this statement is beyond bizarre, and sounds more like a coaxed soundbite than his true sentiment on the subject.

Mueller Report Findings Expected by Congress Sunday

Monday morning’s water cooler chit chat has already been decided.

Is our long national nightmare actually over?  Well, that depends on who you ask today. For many, the completion of the Mueller report on Friday, without any additional indictments being suggest by the Special Counsel, was a huge win for President Trump.  It meant that there wasn’t evidence sufficient to bring charges against the President…perhaps. We should remember that the DOJ’s longstanding belief was that a sitting President could not be indicted. On the left side of the aisle, however, a tense wait has begun, with the Attorney General expected to hand off a summation of Mueller’s findings to Congress any minute. Attorney General William Barr was expected to release his first summary of Mueller’s findings on Sunday, people familiar with the process said, on what lawmakers anticipated could be a day of reckoning in the two-year probe into President Donald Trump and Russian efforts to elect him. Since receiving the report Friday, Barr has been deciding how much of it Congress and the public will see. Of course, for some democrats, this simply wouldn’t cut it. “I suspect that we’ll find those words of transparency to prove hollow, that in fact they will fight to make sure that Congress doesn’t get this underlying evidence,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, chairman of the House intelligence committee, said on ABC’s “This Week.” His plan: Ask for information and if that’s denied, “subpoena. If subpoenas are denied, we will haul people before the Congress. And yes, we will prosecute in court as necessary to get this information.” For now, we will just wait and see. We do know one thing for certain:  Monday morning around the water coolor is going to be a happenin’ spot.
