There are several members of Congress, all of them Democrats, who are poster children for term limits.
But perhaps the leading contender is Maxine Waters.
This California Democrat has never demonstrated much in the way of intellectualism.
She’s a grifter, a racist, and a racial gaslighter.
She hasn’t contributed a damned thing to the functionality of our republic. But she has certainly harmed it by continually tearing away at the fabric of our civil society (we’ll never forget the time she told supporters to attack Trump Cabinet officials).
Now, because Donald Trump lives rent-free in that empty head of hers, she’s gaslighting again, claiming someone ‘told her’ “the Trump campaign” was responsible for the Jan. 6 Capitol breach — just as credible reporting claims that, in reality, it’s likely the FBI had operatives who were responsible for planning and certainly fomenting it.
In an interview with the Conspiracy News Network, Waters told pretend journalist Jim Acosta — who offered no pushback whatsoever — this crazy-ass theory:
'They can say whatever they want to say,' Waters declared. 'One of the things we know is we need a commission, and they are opposing a commission to find out who all was involved. Where did the money come from to send busloads of people in? Who supported them in all of this? Where was the organizing taking place? I'm told there was organizing taking place right in the Trump campaign. And so, if they are really concerned about why our Capitol was invaded and why there was an insurrection, they would support a commission to find out. But they don't want to know because too many of them side with them and support what they have done, and they are not going to call them to task for it.'
'It is outrageous what happened to us, that the Capitol of the United States was invaded by domestic terrorists,' she continued. 'And they don't want to live up to it and admit what took place. They call themselves patriots, but that speech that you heard me give on the floor, I challenge their patriotism. And I told them that they were not really patriots. And they're the ones who claim to be more patriotic than anybody else. But I'm going to keep challenging them because they have joined in supporting literally the fact that not only were we invaded, there was a noose that was hanging at opening of the Capitol grounds, threatening to hang even the vice president at that time of the United States.'
Remember when then-Sen. Harry Reid claimed in 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney hadn’t paid his taxes, and when reporters asked him to clarify (as in, ‘Who told you that, senator?’), Reid said, “Hey, don’t ask me, that’s just what I heard — go ask Romney!”
So, this is the Democrat playbook. What else can we expect from these people?
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
