When you see this tweet the Dems are talking about, you will be absolutely flabbergasted!

That’s what the delusional democrats would like to have investigated.

There are two types of people in America who can turn anything into a hateful, vitriolic argument:  Scorned women and democrats.

When it comes to the former, I will yield the floor to braver men than I.

As far as the democrats are concerned, however, I’ll gladly break down what I mean.

These liberal lunatics have taken a stance of overt and unwavering “resistance” against the President, no matter the subject.  It’s the 5th grade “I hate you because I do” argument.  It doesn’t belong in adult discussion, especially when things like healthcare and the economy are on the line, but this is the reality we’re living in with these dimwitted democrats.

Now, as if we needed more more evidence of the obstructionist nature of the liberal left, prominent democrats are calling for one of the President’s tweets to be investigated by authorities.

Democratic lawmakers have accused the president of tipping off investors after they say he potentially leaked important data ahead of the monthly jobs report.

Now they’re calling on regulators to investigate what they call “a violation of federal guidelines.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., announced on Friday that she and two fellow senators, Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Michael Bennet, D-Colo., had sent a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission concerning what they said were Trump’s “reckless comments on market-moving economic data prior to their public release.”

The offending tweet?

Yes.  That’s what the delusional democrats would like to have investigated.

Never mind the countless taxpayer dollars that would go in to such a probe.  Or the man hours involved for which our already unpopular congress members will now have to divert from whatever “work” they are doing for us.

Warren’s assertions are the height of preposterous politics.

Her letter alleges that the “remark clearly implied that the employment numbers were positive for the administration and surpassed market expectations.” Warren said that markets reacted immediately.

The letter calls on federal regulators to open an investigation into what they say was “a violation of federal guidelines” and see if insider information was used to tip off any person or corporate entity, according to a press release from Warren’s office.

It wouldn’t surprise us to find out that this is nothing more than a “resistance” stunt by the democrats, intended only to add to their growing list of “reason” that the President is “illegitimate”.

New Pork Rules Could Outlaw Bacon in California

This would be an unforgivable overreach by the state government.

There are plenty of times in which Americans engage in a bit of exaggeration at the expense of our federal government.  It’s a defense mechanism, really, in which we are trained to extrapolate the worst possible outcome of any interaction with our elected officials, to guard against abuse at the hands of the tyrannical among us. Very rarely do these sorts of predictions come true.  Truly, this is just part of the American DNA, and it has deep roots in the caffeinated waters of Boston Harbor back in 1773. And if you thought that a new tax on tea was a flimsy enough excuse to rail against the oppressors, what happens when a state government outlaws bacon? At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves. National veal and egg producers are optimistic they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply, much of which comes from Iowa, and pork producers will face higher costs to regain a key market. The threat is no hogwash, either. California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but its farms produce only 45 million pounds, according to Rabobank, a global food and agriculture financial services company. The National Pork Producers Council has asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for federal aid to help pay for retrofitting hog facilities around the nation to fill the gap. Hog farmers said they haven’t complied because of the cost and because California hasn’t yet issued…

Pro-Trump PACs Rake in The Dough, Setting Former POTUS Up with Massive War Chest

The sheer value of Trump’s coffers is nigh unprecedented.

Despite his arbitrary removal from both Twitter and Facebook, former President Donald Trump continues to exude a great deal of sway over the American political ecosystem…and he’s only going to get more influential from here. Trump and his surrogates are still months away from officially announcing anything as far as 2024 goes, but, with the 2022 midterms just around the corner, the MAGA machine is already beginning to get tuned up. And let’s just say that there is plenty of fuel in the tank, too. Former President Donald Trump’s political committees brought in $82 million during the first half of 2021 and have $102 million in the bank, according to federal filings made public Saturday evening. The figures, shared first with POLITICO, underscore the profound reach of Trump’s fundraising power. While the former president is out of office and has been deplatformed on social media sites, he maintains a massive online donor network that he could lean on should he wage a 2024 comeback bid. The numbers are extraordinary, historically speaking. The scenario is virtually unprecedented: Never in history has a former president banked nine figures’ worth of donations to power a political operation. Over the first six months of the year, Trump’s political groups whipped up supporters with baseless claims of election fraud to pull in cash on a scale similar to the GOP’s official political arms, the Republican National Committee and the party’s House and Senate campaign committees. The numbers are undoubtedly troubling for liberals listening in from the left side of the aisle, as worries continue to grow about whether or not the Democrats have any shot at holding onto a majority in the House in 15 months’ time.
