Maxine Waters is having none of it. She is right and to question her sacrosanct opinion is heresy; heresy, I tell you.
“I really do believe much of what you saw coming out of Trump’s mouth was a play from Putin’s playbook.
“I think that when you saw him absolutely calling Hillary ‘crooked,’ uh, the, uh, the ‘lock her up, lock her up, lock her up’ was developed, I think that was developed strategically with people from the Kremlin with Putin.”
Right. Because President Trump is nothing more than Putin’s Sock Puppet. “Jump Trump,” Putin says. “Jump Trump.”
Maxine, I’ll tell you two — no, wait, three things.
Yes, you do in fact have James Brown Hair;
Few humans in history can open their mouths as wide as you can, and
Even your fellow Demorats are distancing themselves from you

Rob Quist. Demorat. Loser. Not quite folksy enough for the folks in Montana.
Yeppers, those Demorats were certain “their guy” was going to “clean the clock” of that evil Greg Gianforte who, I heard, stabbed a British reporter with a fireman’s ax and ate his intestines. With some fava beans and a nice Chianti.
Greg Gianforte Stuns Media, Democrats in Montana House Win
by Adam Shaw
Republican Greg Gianforte won Thursday’s special election for the U.S. House in Montana, defeating Democratic challenger Rob Quist despite being charged with misdemeanor assault the day before.
Well what do you know? Just what the Demorats didn’t consider. A loss to Gianforte.
Gianforte will now take over former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke’s House seat. Zinke vacated the seat when he accepted the post of Secretary of the Interior in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet.
The election results — with Gianforte winning over 50% of the vote and leading by a seven-point margin — were a major blow to Democrats’ anti-Trump efforts, and to the media’s expectations, after Gianforte had allegedly “body-slammed” a reporter before his final campaign event on Wednesday.
Oh, did um widdle Amewican Media Maggots get um widdle feewings hurted by big bad Wepubwican? And da Demowats too? Po babies. . .
Democrats had also been handed the gift of a last-minute controversy when the UK Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs was allegedly assaulted by Gianforte. Jacobs said the entrepreneur had “body-slammed” him in response to questions about the Congressional Budget Office score of the GOP health care plan.
With this caveat: apparently one of the reporters is recanting about the “heinous body slam” of Gianforte. From LifeZette.com:
Montana Assault Witness Changes Story, Says No Neck Grab
by Edmund Kozak
Reporter says firsthand account misstated key aspect of Gianforte incident
A reporter who was a firsthand witness to an incident late Wednesday involving Montana GOP candidate Greg Gianforte and a reporter for the Guardian now admits she may have misstated some details of her initial story.
Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs claimed Gianforte, locked in a hotly contested special election for Congress, body-slammed him and broke his glasses at a campaign event Wednesday. Local authorities have brought misdemeanor assault charges against Gianforte.
But wait (as I am wont to say); there’s more.
There is, so far, no direct video of the incident; only audio has been produced publicly. Among the small handful of eyewitnesses was Fox News reporter Alicia Acuna.
In this day and age, how can there possibly no video? I find that difficult to believe. Then the reporterette retracts her statement.
Details from Acuna’s report quickly went viral online, but she said Thursday during an interview on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that she misstated the neck grab.
“One of you guys said last night that he put his hands around his neck,” Ingraham said. “Which, as somebody who’s done a lot of taekwondo and self-defense, to me that seemed, that might not be exactly right.”
“You know, and I’m the one who said that,” Acuna replied. “I saw both his hands go up, not around his neck in a strangling type of way, but more just on each side of his neck, just grabbed him and I guess it could’ve been on his clothes, I don’t know.”
Pretty much immaterial anyway.
There are few Demorat dry eyes in Montana this morning. But here’s the stunner:
Democrats had hoped to turn the race into an early referendum on President Trump’s performance in the White House and the GOP’s health care bill, which passed the House and is now being considered in the Senate.
But despite national attention and considerable outside funding, as well as Trump’s recent controversies in Washington D.C., Democrats were unable to turn the anti-Trump “resistance” into a concrete victory at the ballot box — a bad sign for Democratic chances in the 2018 midterms.
Again, not one dry eye in any Montana Demorat office.
FEC Complaint Filed Against Rob Quist for Illegal Coordination With Outside Group
by Madeleine Weist
A complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission against Montana House Democratic candidate Rob Quist says he illegally coordinated with an unregistered political committee that distributed newspaper inserts aimed at reaching undecided voters.
The complaint was triggered by a Bozeman Daily Chroniclereport on the newspaper insert, which was crafted by a group of Montana writers supporting Quist. The report states that the creators of the insert consulted with the Quist campaign on where it would most effectively reach undecided voters.
The 24-page paid insert, which can be viewed at WeTakeOurStand.org, is described on the website as “a rapid response anthology of Montana writers speaking out in favor of protecting public lands to support Democratic candidate Rob Quist.”
One of the issues?
“These respondents, including the Quist campaign, have utterly, willfully and knowingly disregarded the provisions of federal law enacted to protect the public from dark money, shadowy, and unaccountable organizations who disseminate campaign materials in the closing days before an election, without providing the legally required notice of the sources and amounts of the funds used to pay for such materials,” the complaint says in its conclusion.
The website thanks a list of sponsors for the insert, but does not disclose details on any of their contributions. The group does not appear to be registered with the FEC.
The Quist campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
Damn. Those Demorats just can’t seem not to cheat.
On Friday afternoon, President Trump tweeted an image of Senator Chuck Schumer standing next to Russian President Vladimir Putin. It depicts the two men seemingly cordially holding coffee and donuts.
Let’s be honest Who knows what kind of communications may have occurred sub rosa between Schumer and Russia’s leader himself? Even President Trump himself hasn’t yet physically met with Vladimir Putin. Schumer did. Why was that? Why? Was it a clandestine meet in plain sight? What messages were passed? Can you tell me? Does anyone know?
Nancy Pelosi said she hadn’t met with any Russians. Despite there being Russian Hill in San Francisco. Was Nancy Pelosi a liar? Yes, apparently she was. Here is the photo.
Photo contradicts Pelosi’s statement about not meeting Kislyak
by Kyle Cheney
The Democratic House leader sat with the Russian ambassador and other officials in 2010.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday that she’s never met with the current Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.
“Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” Pelosi told POLITICO’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer during a Playbook interview, when asked whether she had ever met with the Russian envoy.
But wait, there’s more.
But a file photo from Pelosi’s 2010 meeting with Russian President Dmitriy Medvedev shows Kislyak at the table across from Pelosi — then House speaker — and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). Medvedev had been in the country for a meeting with President Barack Obama a day earlier and stopped in on Capitol Hill to meet with congressional leaders as well.
Fine. But let’s look at the video where Nancy Pelosi, in all her stilted Katherine Helmond/ Lewy Body/Alzheimers glory, attempted to refute the obvious (kudos to the movie Brazil by Terry Gilliam).
Remember, this is the same Nancy Pelosi who held a secret fundraiser for Islamists and Hamas-linked groups in 2012, from the DailyCaller.com:
Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi headlined a high-dollar fundraiser in May that was attended by U.S.-based Islamist groups and individuals linked by the U.S. government to the Hamas jihad group and to the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood movement.
The donors at the undisclosed May 16 event included Nihad Awad, the co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, according to data provided by the nonpartisan Investigative Project on Terrorism.
The CAIR group was named an unindicted conspirator in a 2007 trial of a Hamas money-smuggling group.
A covertly-taken photograph provided by the IPT shows Pelosi standing near Awad at the fundraiser. Roughly 30 people attended the fundraiser, according to the IPT (International Project on Terrorism, whose story and link can be found here.)
Stop. Wasn’t it Barack Hussein Obama who said, in 2008, sotto voce, to then Russian President Medvedev, that he would be more conciliatory to Russia upon re-election?
The words were: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”
Then there was the proverbial “Russian Reset” by an ignorant Obama administration represented by Hillary Rodham Clinton who got the words WRONG on the physical “Russian Reset” button itself.
Nancy Pelosi loves the Russians. Little Chuckie Schumer loves the Russians.
Flashback: Numerous Dems, Obama Also Met with Russian Ambassador
While Democrats feverishly sought Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ resignation after he was revealed to have had encounters with Russian diplomats, photos and records show dems also met with the same Russian ambassador to little fanfare.
In fact the Russian ambassador whom Sessions is accused of meeting visited the Obama administration White House no less than 20 times, and even sat with Democrats at Trump’s congressional address Tuesday.
You might find this a bit troubling to locate because of all the advertisement-ridden flotsam that currently exists between yourself and way too many so-called “conservative” websites courtesy of the “make me wait five seconds” monetizers.
But not on BZ, because I don’t exist to make cash. I exist to bring you the unmitigated truth. You have not and will never see ONE advertisement on BZ.
Photos from earlier this week show Russia’s US ambassador Sergey Kislyak preparing to sit among democrats at the president’s first address to Congress.
Fox News reports that seven other Democrat senators also previously met with Kislyak, one of whom had claimed she had never met with any Russian ambassadors during her time on the Armed Services Committee.
I’d suspect quite so.
Then again, media bias? I’d suspect not so much but, in retrospect, I’d be way wrong. Because in terms of media bias, I have this from NewsBusters.org:
HYPOCRISY: 7X More Coverage for Sessions Debacle than Holder Contempt
by Mike Ciandella and Rich Noyes
If you ever doubted that the media see the news through a partisan prism, consider this: in less than two days, ABC, CBS and NBC devoted nearly 7 times as much coverage to Jeff Sessions meeting with the Russian Ambassador in his role as a U.S. Senator than they did when then-Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress in June 2012.
On March 2, Democrats accused Sessions of misleading Congress by not disclosing that he met with the Russian ambassador to the United States twice while he was serving as Senator. Despite admitting that the statements Sessions made to Congress “would not be considered false under the law” (Jan Crawford, CBS Evening News, March 2), ABC, CBS and NBC devoted more than 1 hour and 12 minutes to this topic, just on the morning and evening shows of March 2 and the morning shows of March 3.
Add it all up, and the unprecedented contempt charge against Obama’s Attorney General earned only 10 minutes, 38 seconds of network airtime, or only slightly more than one-seventh of that spent in 1.5 days over Sessions’ meeting with the Ambassador.
SIX more Democratic leaders are revealed to have met with Russian Ambassador amid campaign to discredit Trump’s aides for doing the same
by Karen Ruiz
Six Democratic leaders were revealed to have been in a meeting with Russia’s Ambassador with Claire McCaskill
Democratic Senator McCaskill denied ever meeting with Russian Ambassador
Old tweets proved the lawmaker had met with Sergey Kislyak in 2013
Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to disclose during his confirmation hearing that he spoke with Russia’s ambassador twice last year
McCaskill and other Democratic leaders including Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer called for Sessions’ resignation
As Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill’s claims that she had never met with Sergey Kislyak were proven to be untrue, six more Democrats have been revealed to have met with the Russian Ambassador.
Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Maria Cantwell of Washington, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Jack Reed of Rhode Island, Robert Casey of Pennsylvania and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island sat in on the meeting with Kislyak and McCaskill, Fox News reported.
The seven Democratic leaders met with the ambassador to discuss the blockade of US adoptions in Russia in 2013.
This cartoon says it all. I simply could not pass it up because it so aptly underscores the silliness of the 69 whining Democrat crybabies who refused to attend the inauguration of Donald Trump. A respectful transition of power? Not on your life, according to the Demorats.
The Demorats are in the wilderness at this point, still navel-gazing, and still completely unable to understand just why they lost the House, the Senate and the White House.

These GOWPs are entirely — and I submit purposely — unaware of the meaning of the Muslim hijab as worn by women in the Islamic world. It is a means of exhibiting the dominance of men over women in the Muslim culture.
Q 24:31 – Women must cover themselves and be seen only by their husbands, father, relatives, eunuchs, slaves, and children who have not yet had sex with women.
Q 2:222 – Menstruating women are unclean and men must stay away from them.
Q 4:11, 2:282, 2:228 – A woman is worth one-half of a man and men are above women.
Q 4:34 – Men are above women and have authority over them, yet women must obey men or risk being beaten.
