Newt Gingrich Predicts Democrats Will Throw Away Congress ‘Once Again’ With ‘Radical’ Budget Agenda

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich spoke out on Friday to predict that Democrats will throw away their control of Congress with a “radical” budget agenda.

He said this on Fox News after they passed the $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus package.

Gingrich Comments On Democrats

Gingrich said that Democrats “have clearly decided” that they will “go for broke on a radical agenda,” adding that this “almost certainly guarantees” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will take over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) role.

“[L]et me start and point out this is the third time they’ve done this,” Gingrich said. “Bill Clinton passed a huge tax increase with no Republicans, and in 1994, they lost 54 seats in the House. Pelosi and others rammed through bills with no Republicans, and in 2010, they lost 63 seats in the House.”

“What the Democrats have now clearly decided is that they are going to go for broke on a radical agenda,” he added.

“They’re going to do everything they can without any Republicans, and that means that they are going to own everything in the election of 2022, and [that] almost certainly guarantees that Kevin McCarthy is the next Speaker and that the Democrats will, in fact once again for the third time have thrown away control of the Congress,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich Says Pelosi Is ‘Hysterical’

Later in this interview, Gingrich said that Pelosi is “hysterical” because she is losing a grip on her speakership.

“That five-vote margin is going to break down sometime this spring as members start to say, ‘Hey, I can’t go back home if I keep voting like a radical.’ And at that point, McCarthy will be the functional leader of the House,” he claimed.

This comes weeks after Gingrich blasted Pelosi as the “most destructive Speaker in history.”

“First off, she keeps violating the Constitution,” Gingrich said of Pelosi. “The latest impeachment is just a simple example.”

“She uses her power ruthlessly and she has really pushed through the most radical positions ever taken by an American Speaker, including abolishing mother and father and uncle and aunt and son and daughter as words, literally trying to strip out any gender reference from the House of Representatives,” he added. “I think she’s very dangerous.”

Democrats Demand Trump Testify At Senate Impeachment Trial

House impeachment managers sent a letter to Donald Trump strongly suggesting the former president testify at the Senate impeachment trial.

The trial, slated to begin on Tuesday of next week, involves a charge from the House that Trump incited a mob of supporters who stormed the Capitol on January 6th.

A formal response from Trump’s lawyers “denied” that he “ever engaged in a violation of his oath of office,” and instead he, “at all times acted to the best of his ability to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Lead impeachment manager Jamie Raskin (D-MD) essentially defied Trump to prove his innocence in his own words.

“In light of your disputing these factual allegations, I write to invite you to provide testimony under oath, either before or during the Senate impeachment trial, concerning your conduct on January 6, 2021,” Raskin wrote.

The Democrat then argued that not testifying would be used against him.

“If you decline this invitation, we reserve any and all rights, including the right to establish at trial that your refusal to testify supports a strong adverse inference regarding your actions (and inaction) on January 6, 2021,” added Raskin.

Lindsey Graham – Not Likely Trump Will Testify at Impeachment Trial

Forbes reporter Andrew Solender tweeted a response from Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in which he dismissed Raskin’s demand as little more than a “political ploy.”

“I don’t think that would be in anybody’s interest,” Graham said according to Solender, adding that it would be a “nightmare for the country.”

“This is just a political showboat move. They didn’t call him in the House,” Graham pointed out.

Raskin’s letter attempts to argue that there is precedent for Presidents testifying at their impeachment trial.

“Presidents Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton both provided testimony while in office—and the Supreme Court held just last year that you were not immune from legal process while serving as President—so there is no doubt that you can testify in these proceedings,” he said.

Raskin is seemingly unaware that Trump is no longer the President.

Solender reports that Graham spoke to the former President a couple of days ago and he’s in “pretty good spirits, trying to get adjusted to his new life.”

A Political Ploy

Raskin’s letter is rich, not only with political ploys but with irony. Tremendously thick irony, at that.

The Maryland Democrat is “guilty” of the very same thing he is tasked with proving is a high crime and misdemeanor in Trump’s impeachment trial.

Raskin objected to the certification of Florida’s electoral votes in 2017. In fact, House Democrats tried objecting to the certification of electoral votes for Donald Trump that year on 11 separate occasions.

One could argue, using the Democrat party’s own standard today, that the constant insistence that Trump didn’t really win the election in 2016 led to an incitement of violence on inauguration day.

House managers do not have independent authority to subpoena Trump so they must invite him to make his case.

The Senate, according to the New York Post, could subpoena him with a simple majority.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Accuses Republicans Of Trying To Remove Clinton For Lying But Not Trump For Inciting A ‘Terrorist Attack’

CNN’s Jake Tapper had a full meltdown on Tuesday about Senate Republicans voting that the impeachment trial against former President Donald Trump was unconstitutional, accusing them of having a “different standard” than they did with Bill Clinton.

Tapper Goes Off on Republicans 

“It is just so strange because, look, I’m not a constitutional scholar,” Tapper said. “I don’t have an opinion on this, but a lot of people who are voting to not have any consequences for Donald Trump are doing so not because of constitutionality but because they don’t want to hold Donald Trump to any sort of standard, and they never have.”

“Some of these are the same people who are like vote to deny government assistance to somebody because they test positive for drugs,” he added. “They believe in consequences for everybody else but the president.”

“The outgoing president, former president, can literally incite an insurrection on the Capitol to hold on to power, to subvert democracy, and they don’t think there should be consequences,” Tapper continued.

Tapper Doubles Down

Not stopping there, Tapper proceeded to double down with his unhinged attack on Republicans.

“So if they don’t believe that an impeachment trial is constitutional, you know, that’s obviously a legal position and legal argument, but if you don’t believe that, then what consequence?” he continued. “What consequence should there be? Or do you think that some people are just above the law?”

“I mean, should there be a criminal trial?” Tapper added. I mean, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy, for that matter, have said that Donald Trump played a role in the terrorist attack. He played a role.”

“I mean, Bill Clinton lied under oath, and they thought that there needed to be— he needed to be removed from office for lying under oath,” the CNN host concluded. “Donald Trump incites a terrorist attack, and they have a different standard.”

No attack on Republicans is too below the belt for Tapper. Earlier this month, he said that “there are Republican members of Congress I know who clearly have lost their minds, who just will not accept reality when it comes to the facts about Donald Trump.”

Monica Lewinsky Nails It With ‘I Have A Joke’ Clinton Reference

Monica Lewinsky, the political world’s most famous intern, took a shot at the ‘I have a joke’ social media trend and delivered a knockout blow.

The competition was initiated by Nell Scovell, creator of the TV series ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch,’ when she tweeted, “I have a Charles Manson joke and it kills.”

‘I have a joke’ was swiftly trending afterward.

To which Lewinsky offered up her own version.

“I have an intern joke and it … nevermind,” she wrote, at least leaving the final word to the imagination, though it’s hardly difficult to figure out where she was going.

What Does She Mean?

If you’re too young to remember, Lewinsky had a politically earth-shattering affair with former President Bill Clinton in the ’90s, a relationship which would lead to his impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice.

Clinton’s wife, Hillary, has staunchly defended her husband, insisting he never should have stepped down amidst the scandal, an act which ultimately brought us to today, when no scandal in politics is truly shocking any longer.

“Absolutely not,” the former First Lady insisted when asked if he should have resigned.

She said this less than two years ago when the #MeToo movement was in full swing.

“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” a reporter asked, to which she replied: “No. No.”

The affair between Mr. Clinton and Ms. Lewinsky is widely seen as an abuse of power, due to the position held by each and the age differences. Clinton was 49 at the time, Lewinsky just 22.

The former President was also accused of multiple infidelities, sexual assaults, and even rape by Juanita Broaddrick, a former nursing home owner.

Clinton has said the ‘gutsiest’ thing she’d ever done in her personal life was to stay married to Clinton, despite these numerous affairs and accusations.

Not Monica’s First Joke

This isn’t the first time Monica has joked about her famous affair.

Last summer, Vice President Mike Pence suggested Americans need to spend more time praying than on the internet, though his advice was truncated by the Washington Times.

They tweeted: “Mike Pence: ‘Spend more time on your knees than on the internet.'”

Freelance journalist Lauren Duca offered a snarky response to the Times tweet of the column: “OK, who’s gonna tell him?”

That’s when Monica chimed in …

This last joke, however, according to actress Mia Farrow, deserves props.

“Monica wins the internet,” she wrote.

Juanita Broaddrick Says Tara Reade’s Joe Biden Assault Allegation Gives Her Déjà Vu: ‘I Believe Her’

Juanita Broaddrick has long claimed that Bill Clinton raped her in 1978, and she now sees similarities with Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden.

Both women accused high profile national Democratic leaders of sexual crimes only to see their stories dismissed for the most part by the mainstream media. According to Broaddrick, this prompted her to contact Reade a few weeks ago.

Broaddrick: ‘This is a very, very believable woman’

“I just told her, any time she needed anything or wanted to talk, to call me and she almost immediately called me,” Broaddrick told Fox News. “I believe her. I spoke with her on the phone, we spoke at length… this is a very, very believable woman.”

Broaddrick plans to stay in touch with Reade and said that they “text every few days.” Broaddrick admits Reade’s story brought back “too many bad memories” about her tragic history.

In 1998, Broaddrick told NBC’s “Dateline” that Bill Clinton had sexually assaulted her in 1978. NBC chose not to air the story until after the Senate acquitted President Clinton during his impeachment trial in February 1999.

Similarly, Reade has blasted CNN and The New York Times for waiting so long to acknowledge and report her claims against Biden.

“The mainstream media is so liberal and they’re going to support anybody that’s running against a Republican. They’re going to be there, regardless of what’s been brought up about that person,” Broaddrick said, pointing to the hypocrisy of the media coverage of Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault which became part of his Supreme Court confirmation hearings in 2018.

The Larry King 1993 Segment Raised the Stakes

“It’s got to get to the point that politics do not play a part in this,” Broaddrick said. “It just depends what side of the aisle they’re on. If they’re against Trump, they’re not going to come out for Tara Reade. And Tara Reade is not a Trump supporter.”

Broaddrick noted the new developments of Reade’s late mother calling in to “Larry King Live” in 1993 and alluding to Biden’s alleged assault against her daughter while working for the then-senator.

“She texted me after the Larry King thing came out and said, ‘Isn’t that great, my momma coming from the beyond,’” Broaddrick said. “My father died when I was 26 or 27, and I’ve always wondered what he would have done had he been alive when I was raped by Bill Clinton… I was his girl, he was so protective over me.”

 

Broaddrick feels that CNN and other mainstream outlets have only started covering Reade’s claims over the last few days because they now have no choice.

“Just like NBC was finally forced to play my ‘Dateline’ interview,” she said. “They did not want to play that but they waited until after the impeachment to run it.”

Broaddrick also addressed #MeToo originator and activist Alyssa Milano denying Reade’s claims before coming around somewhat recently.

“(Milano) came right out and, immediately, said this was suspicious and felt like Tara Reade was lying. And then she said Tara Reade needs to be heard because she got so much backlash, she said.

Broaddrick Blasts Hillary Clinton and Her Joe Biden Endorsement

Then Broaddrick turned to Hillary Clinton’s recent endorsement of presumed 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“You knew that Hillary would probably come out for Biden, but the way that she did it expounding on his virtues was obscene,” Broaddrick said. “She must want to be the vice presidential nominee, no doubt, and I feel like this is just the road to it.”

Broaddrick joked that a Biden-Clinton ticket could use as its slogan, “Vote for Joe, he’s not as bad as Bill.”

Bill Clinton: I Had Sex With Monica Lewinsky to ‘Manage Anxieties’

In a new Hulu documentary, former President Bill Clinton said he had sex with White House intern Monica Lewinsky to manage his “anxieties.”

“Here’s Something That Will Take Your Mind Off it for a While”

The four-part documentary, “Hillary,” focuses on the life of former Secretary of State, starting with her exploration into student politics and the Goldwater campaign, and finishing with her crushing defeat to President Donald Trump in 2016. The documentary also includes a close look into the affair that Bill Clinton had with Monica Lewinsky, his intern at the White House during his 2nd term in office – the affair, and his reaction to it, resulted in his impeachment, becoming only the 2nd President to be impeached.

Bill Clinton told the documentary team that having the affair with Lewinsky was his way of relieving stress and anxieties as the leader of the free world.

“You feel like you’re staggering around, you’ve been in a 15 round prize fight that was extended to 30 rounds and here’s something that will take your mind off it for a while, that’s what happens,” Bill said, adding:

Because there, whatever life – not just me. Everybody’s life has pressures and disappointments, terrors, fears of whatever. Things I did to manage my anxieties for years. I’m a different, totally different person than I was, a lot of that stuff 20 years ago… Maybe it’s just getting older but I hope it was also going through a lot of this. But whatever, what I did was bad but it wasn’t like – how can I think about the most stupid thing I could and do it. It’s not a defense, it’s an explanation. I feel awful.

I Don’t Sympathise With Clinton!

In an interview in 2018, fomer President Clinton refused to apologise to Lewinsky for the affair, but this time he came closer.

“I feel terrible about the fact that Monica Lewinsky’s life was defined by it, unfairly I think,” he told the documentary team. “Over the years I’ve watched her trying to get a normal life back again, but you’ve got to decide how to define normal.”

I’ll tell you something Bill – I don’t define cheating on my wife as “normal,” or something that will “take my mind off” work! I wonder if Juanitta Broderick was just a stress reliever too? This documentary is clearly trying to make people sympathise with someone who has had multiple women allege he sexually assaulted and abused them, not to mention the number of corruption allegations against both Bill and Hillary. He’s the same old sleazebag he was back decades ago, and we shouldn’t forget it!

Ex-Clinton Impeachment Manager Reveals Real Reason Mitt Romney Voted To Convict Trump

By PoliZette Staff | February 8, 2020

Bob Barr, who was the impeachment manager for former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial, just sat down with The Daily Caller to discuss the failed impeachment effort from the left against Donald Trump.

During the interview, Barr gave his thoughts on Senator Mitt Romney’s (R-UT.) vote to convict Trump of impeachable offenses in the impeachment trial. Romney was the only Republican to break party lines in voting to convict Trump. Barr quickly made it clear that he had no respect for Romney’s vote, saying that it was all about the senator’s own ego.

“He’s putting himself over everything else, I think this was an ego trip for him, he hates Trump and he thinks this will help himself look saintly by having voted against President Trump,” said Barr.

This comes after Rick Gorka, who was a spokesman for Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, wrote on Twitter that the senator’s vote against Trump was motivated by “bitterness and jealousy.”

“I believe Mitt Romney is motivated by bitterness and jealously that Donald Trump accomplished what he has failed to do multiple times,” Gorka tweeted. “His desire to pander to the chattering class has gotten the best of him…again.”

Not stopping there, Gorka pointed out how pathetic it is that Romney is now pandering to the very people who stopped him from fulfilling his dream of becoming president back in 2012.

“These are the same people that hated Mitt in 2012 and they will hate him again when they are done with him,” he added. “It is sad to see that Mitt has not learned the lessons from 2012. Now he has betrayed his Party and millions of voters.”

Romney’s vote to convict Trump was indeed pathetic. He knew that there was no chance Trump would actually be impeached, and he also knew that his constituents did not want the president to be impeached, yet he voted to convict him anyway because of his own Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Romney will go down in history as a traitor to the Republican Party for what he did this week.
