Maxine Waters

Left-wing politicians may be able to say and do the most outrageous things and act like it never happened, but there are those on the right who do not forget.

Namely, Judicial Watch, who promised to hold Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) accountable for her comments inciting harassment and violence of right-wing politicians earlier this year, and has now followed through on those comments.

If you need a refresher, here’s what Waters said at a rally shortly following an incident in Virginia in which Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family were asked to leave a restaurant.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere,” Waters yelled to the cheering crowd at Keep Families Together in Los Angeles on June 23rd.

At the time, the non-partisian watchdog group Judicial Watch promptly proceeded to send an official complaint to the congressional ethics office, explaining they believed Waters’ comments actually violated certain House rules, Conservative Tribune reports:

“In encouraging individuals to create ‘crowds’ who will ‘push back’ on President Trump’s Cabinet members at private business establishments and in seemingly trying to prevent these Cabinet officials from obtaining basic necessities without fear of assault and violence, Rep. Waters seems to be (in) violation of House rules,” stated the letter from Judicial Watch.

“Specifically,” that rule is House Rule 23, clause 1, which states, “A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall conduct himself at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.”

“We hereby request that the Office of Congressional Ethics conduct a preliminary investigation into whether Rep. Maxine Waters violated House Rules in encouraging attacks on Cabinet officials,” the letter concluded.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, in the article announcing the letter, said, “Rep. Maxine Waters incited violence and assault against members of President Trump’s Cabinet.”

“It is urgent that the House Ethics Office quickly acts to hold her accountable for this dangerous incitement,” added Fitton.

Well, act they did, as Conservative Tribune explains:

Now “Waters has been referred to the House Office on Congressional Ethics for an investigation of her behavior and statements.”

Well, there you go.

It pays to hold elected officials accountable for their words!

This may or not come as shocking to some people. Like Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib, freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar often finds herself on the wrong side of the issue. Here’s just the latest example.

To some, a godsend. To others, a disgrace. What cannot go overlooked, however, is that Obama lied to the American people about the strength of radical Islam while burying 470,000 documents related to the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound. Why? In order to win re-election in 2012. From Western Journal: In a detailed exposé in The Weekly Standard, journalist and author Stephen F. Hayes showed that Obama buried a staggering number of documents from Osama bin Laden’s compound, and essentially lied to the American people about the real status of Al Qaeda in order to win votes. […] A key piece of Obama’s re-election was the elimination of bin Laden and the claim…

FACEPALM: Ocasio-Cortez Repeatedly Refuses to Condemn Terror Attack At ICE Facility (Watch)

Just another day in the life…

AOC and her “squad,” which consists are far-left radicals like Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and Ilhan Omar, are the gift that keeps on giving. They are virtually gift wrapping the 2020 election to President Trump. When pressed about the domestic terror attack by an Antifa activist at an ICE detention facility in Washington this past weekend, AOC would not condemn the man’s actions. Because that’s where liberalism is, nowadays. From Daily Wire: The attacker repeatedly called the facilities “concentration camps” in a manifesto that was obtained by the local media outlet. The media has repeatedly tried to tie manifestos of white nationalist terrorists to President Donald Trump, suggesting that he was somehow responsible for attacks on a synagogue and on a mosque. The media has not held Ocaiso-Cortez to the same standard, even though she single-handedly interjected the “concentration camp” rhetoric into U.S. politics. […] Ocasio-Cortez was asked about her rhetoric and whether she would condemn the attack. Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer the question.
