There is one axiom any person can take the bank: Today’s Dems are a pack of liars. ERGO, it is unsurprising Senator Grassley fingers top Dem leaders for smearing his and Senator Ron Johnson’s investigation of Hunter Biden involvement with corrupt Ukrainian company Burisma with lies UNDOUBTEDLY as cover for Quid Pro Joe and the Obama Administration.

One of the longest serving members of Congress in a scathing speech on Wednesday accused Democrats of resorting to dirty tricks in order to derail investigations into Joe and Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukraine. “This is the behavior of cowards. And it has to stop,” Sen. Chuck Grassley declared.
Democrats have accused two leading senators of engaging in disinformation, while in truth the accusers are engaging in disinformation, said Grassley, R-Iowa, in his speech to lawmakers.
Citing investigations being led by himself and Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Grassley highlighted important revelations, among them that parts of the infamous anti-Trump document, the Steele Dossier, were based on Russian disinformation.
The current investigations by Grassley and Johnson center on Hunter Biden’s position on the board of the Burisma company in Ukraine when his father, Joe Biden, was vice president.
Both Grassley and Johnson have come under fire from Congressional Democrats who have sought to discredit the investigation – thus prompting Grassley’s floor speech.
“In the last few weeks, Democrats have falsely accused me and Senator Johnson of receiving packets of information, including tapes, from a Ukrainian,” Grassley said. “That’s false reporting based on leaks from a letter written by Senator Schumer, Senator Warner, Speaker Pelosi, and Representative Schiff, which is itself based on cherry picked innuendo from classified documents.”
In his forceful remarks, Grassley accused Democrats of acting in bad faith.
“This nonsense of orchestrated leaks to plant stories falsely accusing me of dealing in disinformation based on actual disinformation that I wasn’t even privy to serves only the interest of our shared adversaries,” he said. “This is the behavior of cowards. And it has to stop.”
Elsewhere, he countered the Democrats’ claims.
“Let me be clear, my investigation with Senator Johnson is based on how the Obama administration formulated its Ukraine policy, which then Vice President Biden oversaw while his son was on the board of a corrupt Ukrainian natural gas company that was under investigation,” Grassley said.
Summarizing the Russia collusion investigation that produced no evidence of collusion between Moscow and Donald Trump, Grassley took a swipe at the Democrats for not examining the roots of those charges.
“Maybe the Democrats don’t want to look under the hood of the fake Russia investigation because they’d be front and center,” Grassley said.
The pointed floor statement follows an Aug. 4 letter from Grassley and Johnson to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Intelligence Vice Chair Mark Warner (D-Va.), and House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).
“The fact that the press knew more about the content of the allegedly classified material than we did indicates that you are more interested in grabbing headlines and scoring political points than actually addressing and confronting the issue of foreign interference in our elections,” Grassley and Johnson wrote in their letter.
“We have neither sought out, relied upon, nor publicly released anything that could even remotely be considered disinformation,” the two wrote.
Grassley, 86, was first elected in 1980, and is serving his seventh term in the United States Senate.

The American Left as represented by the Left Stream Media and Democrats particularly the sore loser Crooked Hillary, have been doing their best to frame President-Elect Trump’s victory with a crushing 306 awarded Electoral Votes is the result of “Fake News”.
In my book the Left is doing its best to delegitimize Donald Trump as President of the United States. And since the Left is trying to persuade their clueless voters to be angry against Trump’s voters, you must ask – WHY?
I haven’t heard or read anyone come to the conclusion I have arrived at, but hear is my simple Conservative voter reasoning. The Dems are setting the groundwork to censor Conservative Social Media and Conservative bloggers who do not tow the Leftist public agenda that is pushed by the Left Stream Media as “Real News”.
I have a couple of articles for you to read that I am certain the American Left will step up to the stump and holler Fake News with the sole purpose of influencing people to not consider an alternative view that Hillary Clinton is CROOKED.
I have no idea who would want to actually attend a meeting where this woman is speaking. However, she spoke on Capitol Hill and urged Congress to pass legislation that would “boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda.”
Hillary Clinton on Fake News Dangers | Hillary Clinton says fake news can have “real world consequences”: “This isn’t about politics or partnership. Lives are at risk.”
“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” Clinton said.
“Let me just mention briefly one threat in particular that should concern all Americans — Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike — especially those who serve in our Congress: the epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year,” Clinton said.
“It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” she said. “This isn’t about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk. Lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days to do their jobs, contribute to their communities.”
“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly. Bipartisan legislation is making its way through Congress to boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda, and Silicon Valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news,” Clinton added. “It’s imperative that leaders in both the private sector and the public sector step up to protect our democracy, and innocent lives.”
Obama said he would stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in a ugly direction and he was not kidding. The bodies of Americans coming home in coffins after a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 and his administration takes the opportunity to go after Coptic Christians and critics of Islam in a anti free speech political stance.
We could go on and on with the crimes of Mrs. Clinton, her husband Bill, her daughter Chelsea and the Clinton Foundation, all of which there is evidence to bear out that their crimes are real, but are being covered up by their conspirators in the state-controlled media. However, they also have accomplices in Congress, too.
It’s time the American people had enough of America’s own propaganda and demand their representatives and unelected people like Hillary Clinton stop attempting to infringe on the rights that are protected under the First Amendment concerning free speech, and freedom of the press.
Hillary Clinton: ‘It is Now Clear That So-called Fake News can Have Real-world Consequences’ [VIDEO]
Democratic Senator Harry Reid of Nevada is throwing in the towel. He’s retiring at the end of this year.
Hillary Clinton was invited to speak at an event honoring the outgoing Senator, in which she praised Reid. Placed awkwardly in her speech without any segue was a brief segment about “malicious fake news” which can have “real-world consequences” – no doubt referencing the actor who barged in to a D.C. pizza joint to “investigate” a child prostitution ring thought to involve the Clintons, the Podestas, and many others.
In her speech celebrating Senator Reid’s career and life, she mentioned the story about Ben Franklin being asked following the Constitutional Convention what kind of government they had formed, to which Franklin replied, “A Republic. If you can keep it.” Then, she said something about “standing up for our democracy,” and went straight into “fake news.” From RCP:
Let me mention briefly one threat in particular that should concern all Americans. Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike, especially those who serve in our Congress: The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year. It is now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences.
This isn’t about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk. Lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities. It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly.
Bipartisan legislation is making its way through Congress to boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda, and Silicon Valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news.
It’s imperative that leaders in both the private sector and the public sector step up to protect our democracy and innocent lives. Harry Reid and Vice President Biden may be stepping back from the daily scrum of politics and governing, but I know I speak for them as well as tens of millions of Americans when I say that we are all counting on those of you who remain.
Brought to you by Desert Diamond: http://ddcaz.com Vice President Biden joins Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi & Senator Chuck Schumer for the unveiling of Reid’s leader portrait from the Kennedy Caucus Room at the U.S. Capitol.
The media were so quick to draw conclusions about the ‘fake news’ story “pizzagate” and the actor who fired a shot at the pizza place. If the same guy had gone in and yelled, “Allahu Akbar!” and killed a few people, the media would make sure no one jumped to any conclusions. “Just because he said ‘Allahu Akbar’ doesn’t mean that he must be a Muslim. It doesn’t mean it’s terrorism. Maybe it was just a disgruntled ex-employee, you Islamophobes!”
But since a guy waltzed in claiming to be investigating an underground child prostitution ring, the media and political establishment are falling over themselves, trying to shut down every conservative and libertarian site for spreading “malicious fake news” – created by a “sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign” conspiracy – that’s had “real-world consequences.”

Hillary Clinton: ‘It is Now Clear That So-called Fake News can Have Real-world Consequences’ [VIDEO]

When Michele Bachmann entered the nomination race for the 2012 GOP race for President I supported her. Bachmann is a Tea Party Conservative and a Social Conservative with a strong Christian foundation. Regardless of Leftist Dems, a Left oriented MSM and Establishment Republicans being against her Bachmann survived the smearing of a Presidential campaign and a huge push to defeat her as a Congresswoman.
From the recent emails I am receiving from her campaign Bachmann perceives the relentless anti-Conservative/anti-Christian Dems are coming after her again in her 2014 reelection campaign.
The investigation against Bachmann is the political motivated agenda to discredit or embarrass Rep. Bachmann to make her a more plausible target for Leftist money to defeat her in 2014. Check this out:
Congressional ethics investigators are pursuing allegations of financial impropriety in U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann’s 2012 presidential campaign, according to several attorneys and former staffers involved in the case.
A spokesman for Bachmann’s congressional office suggested that the disclosure of the new ethics review, though it originates with staffers in her own campaign, was engineered by political adversaries.
“Unfortunately, the disclosure of the existence of this review is a predictable and politically motivated attack by Congresswoman Bachmann’s political adversaries in an attempt to disparage her reputation as a top target of the DCCC [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee] and Democratic Super PACs,” said Bachmann spokesman Dan Kotman. “They are willing to do or say anything in an attempt to defeat her in 2014.”
William McGinley, a top GOP Washington attorney representing Bachmann’s campaign in the new inquiry and before the FEC, said, “There are no allegations that the congresswoman engaged in any wrongdoing.” He added that “We … are confident that at the end of their review the OCE board will conclude that Congresswoman Bachmann did not do anything inappropriate.” (Michele Bachmann under congressional ethics investigation; byKEVIN DIAZ, Star Tribune; Updated: March 25, 2013 – 11:26 PM – READ THE REST)
Below is one of those emails imploring for your support on a national basis rather than just her District constituents in Minnesota.
The Democrats, with the help and dollars from major liberal organizations like the DCCC are gearing up to spend millions to defeat me.
You see, they are already telling reporters I am on the top of their list and I need your immediate help to fight back.
John, the fact that the Democrat’s are gearing up so early before next year’s election is not good news. They will raise and spend millions to defeat me, and I won’t be able to fight back without your help.
I sent you the below email on Tuesday, and I need to know I have your support.
The Democrat’s are watching our campaign like hawks, and your actions today to support my campaign will show them our strength and unity.
You know that I will always stand up and fight for our shared conservative values, but in order to continue to be your voice in Washington, I need the strongest campaign war chest and grassroots network as possible. That’s why I need your URGENT support today!
From: Michele Bachmann Date: March 20, 2013 10:52:26 AM CDT Subject: It’s starting
The national Democrats would love nothing more than to see me lose — and they have already decided to pull out all the stops to make that happen.
In fact just yesterday, Roll Call — a Capitol Hill political publication — is hinting that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is telling reporters that I’m on the top of their list for defeat. (The DCCC is Nancy Pelosi’s campaign slush fund.)
You see, the DCCC has already identified my district and campaign as one they are targeting for defeat in 2014. And you can bet they will have the resources to go all out. In 2012 alone, the DCCC raised and spent more than $184 million dollars to defeat Republicans.
And, in addition to working overtime to defeat our campaign, they have willing accomplices in the liberal media to continue their dirty work by misrepresenting and misleading voters all over the national airwaves.
John, I need your help to fight back.
I cannot do this without you. Our campaign is entirely funded by the donations of my supporters and close friends like yourself.
You see, the DCCC has it all wrong. They think that if they can defeat me, they will have defeated our values. But, our campaign isn’t about me- it’s about US. It’s about restoring our government and economy, protecting our shared constitutional conservative values, eliminating the wasteful spending in Washington, and ensuring our conservative voice is heard.
We cannot let the DCCC undo all of the great work we have done in the past. The actions we take today will determine our future.
If the national Democrats and the liberal media are going to start campaigning against me this early — then you and I must start this early as well.
And that’s exactly why I’m writing you today.
You have been a loyal supporter and friend, but your continued support has never been more important. The ultra-liberals at the DCCC are now openly targeting my race, and we need to fight back.
