GATEWAY PUNDIT notes the percentage involved in skipping the inauguration:
So far more than 40 DEMOCRATS have announced their intention of boycotting the peaceful transfer of power. After eight years of Obama there are only 194 Democrats left in the US House of Representatives. That means more than 20% of Democrats are boycotting the Trump Inauguration. The Cry Baby Party is having a rough time adjusting to the fact that they have become a coastal minority party.
Some of the reasoning behind this choice can be found here at WCYB 5-NEWS.
I love this.
These actions by Democrats will further split the Democrats and ensure them becoming MORE of a municipal party in 2018 and 2020 — keep it up! As an aside, John Lewis uses so much rhetoric, he forgets what he has done/said in the past.
Lewis vs. Lewis
Mind you, this isn’t the first time he has lied and been caught…
This video tears many aspects of the “racial slur” incident said to of happened by Tea Partiers towards two black congressmen. There has been some back and forth going on on this topic over at POWER LINE BLOG that will enlighten the reader here to what is still going on with this story.
In 2010, Andrew Breitbart recognized Clinton campaign chair John Podesta as one of the biggest, most corrupt figures in Washington, D.C.
“Fuck you, John Podesta,” he told journalist Dave Weigel, who then wrote for Slate. “What’s in your closet, John Podesta? Big Podesta? Big Soros? Do you want us to play these games? Because we’re playing to win.”
Andrew Breitbart understood that the biggest threats to America were those who pulled the strings behind the scenes to gain enormous personal power, money, and influence.
Podesta is a creature of Washington, D.C., driving the leftist agenda for decades with his fingers in every pot, since serving in the Bill Clinton White House.
He served as the president’s chief of staff during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, working tirelessly to thwart investigations around the scandal-plagued administration. The tumultuous events reportedly spawned an alter-ego for Podesta that aides called “Skippy” — the nasty side of the normally mild-mannered operative.
Podesta also co-founded a massive lobbying firm with his brother, Tony Podesta, but later went on to launch the liberal think tank Center for American Progress and its multi-armed political subsidiaries.
The Center for American Progress has received more than $5.5 million from liberal billionaire George Soros and millions from top American corporations.
The leftist operative has remained close to power for decades and has been the subject of many fawning media profiles over the years.
His lobbyist brother, Tony, has repeatedly reaped the financial rewards of Podesta’s proximity to power, as the pair enjoys unprecedented access to the most powerful people in the world, including questionable ties with Saudi Arabia and Russia…..
Besides all the criminal activity — skeletons in Podesta’s closet that WikiLeaks has made bare… there is this as well (mind you, I am not a fan of INFO-WARS, and there is no direct connection of John Podesta being involved in this practice… but it is still a bit unsettling that he would be invited to such a thing):
In the email, Tony Podesta forwards an invitation to attend a “spirit cooking dinner” from performance artist Marina Abramovic to his brother John Podesta, chairman of the Clinton campaign. Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Abramovic is considered “the grandmother of performance art.”
A spirit cooking dinner is an occult ritual started by Abramovic that derives from the religion of “Thelema,” founded by noted British occultist/Satanist Aleister Crowley….
In TheIndependents Monday, Michael Skolnik, political director of Russell Simmons (you read that right), attempted to defend Obama’s abuse of executive orders by blaming racist obstructionism in Congress. When Skolnik cited as proof the claim by Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) that Tea Partiers hurled racial slurs at him and Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN)—a claim Andrew Breitbart famously disproved—Kennedy et al called him out on the “unfounded” and “dangerous” accusation.
After trying to blame Bush for setting the precedent for Obama’s abuse of executive power, Skolnik reverted to the race card. The self-described “civil rights leader” argued that Obama is being forced to resort to executive orders because, unlike Reagan and other presidents before him, “he is black.”
Skolnik: There are people in Congress who do not want to work with him because he is black.
When asked for proof, Skolnik turned to the long-discredited Reps. Lewis and Carson racial slur accusation.
Kennedy immediately called foul, referencing Breitbart’s $100,000 challenge for video evidence of the alleged slurs:
Kennedy: We don’t believe John Lewis. We think he is lying on that…. Did you see Hating Breitbart? Did you see 75 people who had video going at that exact moment who didn’t hear anything. Stop saying that, stop saying that. That is unfounded, it’s dangerous, and how dare you?
After fellow host Kmele Foster underscored that the discredited race-baiting fabrication was the best Skolnik could do for evidence, Skolnik returned to his original talking point:
Skolnik: You do anything to protect the American people. If Congress is not going to work with you, you’ve got executive orders.
