Remember: Obama Instantly Fired All of George W. Bush’s Ambassadors When He Won In 2008

Trump didn’t go the same route…

President Trump could’ve done what Barack Obama did and forced all serving ambassadors to submit their resignations. He didn’t do that, though.

When Barack won his first term to the White House back in November 2008, one of his first moves was to let go of all of President Bush’s ambassadors. If Trump had done that, he wouldn’t have dealt with anyone like disgraced Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

Instead, 45 has found himself in a pickle. Of course, he didn’t do anything wrong and liberals know that – they just don’t care. Here’s a quick reminder for ya, via Breitbart:

Former United States ambassador Marie Yovanovitch testified Friday about her dismay upon being fired by President Donald Trump, but it’s actually quite common for presidents to do so after taking office.

The State Department issued a December 2008 notice to Bush-appointed ambassadors to submit their resignations, effective when President Barack Obama took office in 2009, according to the Washington Post.

Trump sent a tweet about Yovanovitch during her testimony and liberals were quick to claim it was “witness intimidation.” CNN’s Jake Tapper was one of those people.

Amb. Yovanovitch testifies about POTUS and his team smearing her.

During her testimony, Pres. Trump goes on twitter and attacks her.

Asked for her reaction in real time, the witness says she finds the attack intimidating.

A potential article of impeachment, right there.

Here are some reactions explaining how Trump might’ve been out of line, but really didn’t do anything wrong…

1. Trump ridiculous to attack her this am.
2. Saying she was terrible and that he had constitutional authority to fire her is not witness intimidation which is “the threatening of a crucial court witnesses by pressure or extortion to compel him/her to not to testify”

Guys, we get that you feel Orange Man Bad deep in your bones, but this is almost too silly for words. Like, listen to yourselves.

Oh Jake
This is really sad

You need to relax & pace yourself
You’ve got five more years of this

Peak stupidity has been reached.

Clown show leader Adam Schiff (D-CA) also said Trump’s tweets were “witness intimidation.”

Schiff: “We saw today witness intimidation in real time by the President of the United States.”

Texas conservative Ted Cruz wasn’t about to let Schiff get away with it.

This may be the single most ridiculous claim of the Dem show trial. No, the President’s tweeting is not “witness intimidation.” You may not like the tone of some or even many of his tweets, but it’s absurd to suggest that tweeting is an impeachable “high Crime [or] Misdemeanor.”

Barr Labels Seattle, New York City, And Portland As ‘Anarchist Jurisdictions’

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr has come out and labeled the cities of New York, Seattle, and Portland as “anarchist jurisdictions,” stating they have “permitted violence and destruction of property to persist,” after the president signed an executive order to limit federal funds sent to these places in the U.S. The announcement came via the Justice Department on Monday morning, saying the leadership in these three cities “have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities” for months now following the death of George Floyd, which led to an explosion in violent protests, riots, and looting. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said Monday. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.” Trump’s early September memorandum stated that “it is the policy and purpose of the United States Government to protect the lives and property of all people in the United States from unlawful acts of violence and destruction” and that “without law and order, democracy cannot function.” The president said that “anarchy has recently beset some of our States and cities” and claimed that “for the past few months, several State and local governments have contributed to the violence and destruction in their jurisdictions by failing to enforce the law, disempowering and significantly defunding their police departments, and refusing to accept offers of Federal law enforcement assistance.” He…

Tom Cotton Weighs In On Filling RGB Seat: Democrats Who Voted For Kavanaugh Won Reelection; Those That Didn’t, Lost

Published

Sen. Tom Cotton made a very good argument for why Democrats should vote in favor of filling the SCOTUS seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by pointing out that those Democrats who supported Kavanaugh got reelected, while those that voted against him didn’t. This is a great strategy. What most Democrats want more than anything is to do maintain power and stay in office so they can get paid to do nothing, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to do so. Cotton knows that, hence, bringing up this very valid point. via The Daily Wire: “In 2014, the American people elected a Republican majority to the Senate to put the brakes on President Obama’s judicial nominations,” Cotton said during an interview on Fox News. “In 2018, we had a referendum on this question, just a month before the 2018 midterms. We had the vote on Justice Kavanaugh. There could not have been a clearer mandate because the American people didn’t just re-elect Republicans, they expanded our majority. They defeated four Democratic senators who voted against Justice Kavanaugh. They re-elected the one Democratic senator who did vote for Justice Kavanaugh.” “So we have a clear mandate to perform our constitutional duty. That’s what the Senate majority will do now. That’s what we did back in 2016 as well,” Cotton continued. “The Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.” Cotton later added that people should not “discount Democratic votes either” in the upcoming hearings after President Donald Trump announces who he is nominating to the nation’s highest court. https://youtu.be/0N2I3GVO_q4 We absolutely need to make sure that a true, pro-life, conservative appointee is confirmed and placed on the Supreme Court, as…
