LET Unity

President Trump has had enough of politicians running their mouths against CBP – and today he went on the warpath.

Jessica Campisi of The Hill noted that President Trump slammed House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) on Twitter early Saturday as a “brutal bully,” claiming the longtime congressman’s Baltimore district is “FAR WORSE” and “more dangerous” than the southern border.

“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous,” Trump tweeted.

….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.

 

Elijah Cummings – the thirteen-term representative who has “served“ the greater Baltimore area since 1996 has been one of the hardliners pursuing impeachment of the President, criticizing him in many ways even before his inauguration. 

This has never been more evident than this past week as he appeared to lead Robert Mueller with a leash in order to set up the President against charges that Mueller concluded couldn’t be charged.

Of course Nancy Pelosi had to stick her nose in and scream “racist!”.

 

The rest of the story involves Cummings’ alignment with several of the President’s other critics:  Maxine Waters (D-CA), Al Green (D-TX), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

I say “alignment” because their motives are exactly the same, and unfortunately, are their accomplishments.  In many years serving as representatives for their jurisdictions, Cummings, Green, and Waters have gotten little to nothing accomplished for their constituents.  And other than the exceptionally laughable Green New Deal, Cortez, Omar, and Tlaib haven’t proffered any legislation worth reporting – for their districts or the rest of the nation.

I find it incredibly ironic that three of the most seasoned, yet outspoken critics of the President have resided over districts that are failing miserably, in some of our largest cities with the largest fiscal budgets in the nation. 

Al Green’s district in Houston, where he’s served for 14 years, has seemingly been left out of all the other prosperity the Houston area is enjoying – his area sits on the sidelines while Katy, Pasadena/Baytown, and areas north of Houston explode with growth, jobs, and industry. 

Perhaps the blinders he’s wearing don’t allow him to see the needs of his constituents since he’s so focused on a coup to overthrow a duly elected President.

Maxine Waters presides over one of the most destitute areas in the Los Angeles metroplex.  Her daily speeches about “high crimes and misdemeanors” in her efforts to #Impeach45 have obviously outweighed her oath of office and her duty to help and protect her citizens…as troves of rats, infested with medieval diseases begin to thrive – throughout one of the largest homeless populations in the country. 

But hey, let’s outlaw plastic straws.

Back to Elijah Cummings, I can’t help but pay attention to two of the largest failures a city government and US Representative could be party to – first, Baltimore police were made to stand down during riots, and told to “let people be angry” and tear things up as millions of dollars in damage was done to city businesses and homes and looting, robberies, and assaults spiraled out of control. 

In the same area, teachers, principals, and superintendents received huge bonuses for incredible graduation rates of high schoolers and acceptance numbers into college – turns out it was all a scam – the grades of students were inflated, attendance numbers were patently false, with some students attending less than half the school year, and the college acceptance? 

That was fake, too – officials at a local college were bribed to fabricate acceptance numbers.  School system officials got rich, kids didn’t learn much of anything, but the city looked great

And it was all a scam.  And who loses?  Those very kids he almost cried about when recently dogging the President.

There is a significant police/law enforcement angle to all of this.

In each of these Democrat-controlled cities and areas, represented by all six of the people I’ve described here – law enforcement retention rates are at all-time lows, recruitment is down, and good officers are flooding out of the areas and moving to places where they’re appreciated and don’t have to worry about dying each and every day. 

Police are vilified by these very “leaders” who represent them, enabling and empowering citizens to perpetuate hate crimes, assaults, and murders onto the members of our law enforcement community.

The President, no matter what subject he’s speaking on, always brings his words around to praise law enforcement, other first responders, currently serving military and military veterans.  You don’t hear any one of those representatives talking about people in those categories, or how proud they are to serve our nation as representatives, or how proud they are of those servants in our communities.

The chant on impeachment is common with these people – “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

Ironically, these representatives are the very people who have become traitorous to their country, states, and cities, and have forsaken their oaths of office – never stopping a moment in their relentless and zealous attacks against the President.  And yet committing these very crimes they speak of – themselves. 

It is time for impeachment.  But not the President.
