The mainstream media and Democrats have complained about President Donald Trump and Russia attempting to rig an election, but the truth is it is they who want to fix the 2020 election.

Part of their scheme is covering up the transgressions of Democratic candidates while, at the same time, exacerbating any perceived wrongdoings of President Trump.

Consider the media response to the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape that made headlines just before the election in 2016 — where Trump was heard during a conversation recorded in 2005 making a lewd remark about handling women in a sexual manner — and compare it against the virtual silence that has greeted allegations of sexism against Democratic presidential contender Michael Bloomberg.

When the former New York City mayor and business tycoon, celebrated his 48th birthday in 1990, one of his female employees gave him a book of quotes that, apparently, came from him, The Washington Post reported.

Titled “The Wit and Wisdom of Mike Bloomberg,” the book was full of the kind of anecdotes that would outrage leftists in the media if anything close to them were attributed to Trump.

In one, for instance, he compared a good salesman to a man who blatantly asks women he’s just met if they want to have sex. The man gets turned down a lot, the Bloomberg line goes (using the crude f-word), but he also has sex a lot.

On a sicker, more serious note, the billionaire has been accused in several lawsuits of discriminating against women, including allegedly telling one employee, Sekiko Sakai Garrison to “kill it” when she told him she was pregnant.

“On April 11, 1995 at approximately 11:20 a.m., Bloomberg was having a photograph taken with two female Company salespeople and a group of N.Y.U. Business School students, in the company snack area,” the complaint from Garrison read.

(A downloadable version is here, but warning, some of the content is disturbing.)

“When Bloomberg noticed Garrison standing nearby, he asked, ‘Why didn’t they ask you to be in the picture? I guess they saw your face.’

“Continuing his penchant for ridiculing recently married women in his employ, Bloomberg asked plaintiff, ‘How’s married life? You married?’ Plaintiff responded that her marriage was great and was going to get better in a few months: that she was pregnant, and the baby was due the following September.

“He responded to her ‘Kill it!’ Plaintiff asked Bloomberg to repeat himself, and again he said, ‘Kill it!’ and muttered, ‘Great! Number 16!’ suggesting to plaintiff his unhappiness that sixteen women in the Company had maternity-related status,” the lawsuit states. “Then he walked away.”

The complaint also alleged that Bloomberg jokingly instructed women to give a man who was about to get married oral sex.

According to the lawsuit, Bloomberg also made frequent remarks that could be construed as racist regarding Garrison’s Japanese heritage and employed ethnic slurs when talking about his company’s clients in Mexico.

Bloomberg’s campaign chairwoman, Patricia E. Harris, said the former mayor “has always hired and promoted women into senior leadership roles in industries long dominated by men.”

“In any large organization, there are going to be complaints — but Mike has never tolerated any kind of discrimination or harassment, and he’s created cultures that are all about equality and inclusion.

“Anyone who works hard and performs well is going to be rewarded, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or anything else,” she said.

But Garrison’s complaint is far from the only time Bloomberg has, allegedly, said inappropriate things.

In an interview with the U.K. Guardian in 1993 after his divorce, according to The Post, he bragged: “I like theater, dining and chasing women. Let me put it this way: I am a single, straight billionaire in Manhattan. What do you think? It’s a wet dream.”

Does anyone doubt that if these were the words of President Trump that they would not be reported daily on CNN and MSNBC?

The vast majority of the mainstream media has no interest in reporting fairly on this election and they are not about to start now.

When you stand up for what you believe in good things tend to happen.

Especially when you are a man of strength like President Donald Trump.

Last week, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it would be cutting New York residents out of its Trusted Traveler Programs because of a state “sanctuary” law that prevents the agency from accessing New York Department of Motor Vehicles records.

The “Green Light Law,” or Driver’s License Access and Privacy Act, is designed to prevent the federal government from finding illegal aliens it has allowed to get driver’s licenses, but the side effect is that the feds also cannot access the records of those applying for the programs.

Now, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has shown a willingness to cave to some of the Trump administration’s demands.

“I’m going to meet with the president tomorrow,” the governor said Wednesday on Long Island News Radio, Politico reported. “He offered a meeting, the earliest availability was tomorrow, and I took him up on it.”

“I will give them the DMV database for Trusted Traveler. These are people who go for an in-person federal interview with all sorts of background information,” Cuomo said.

Of course, Cuomo alone can’t take action to provide the feds with the DMV database.

He would need the state legislature’s support, though it’s not hard to imagine Democratic lawmakers would fall in line behind him.

On another radio show, Cuomo was more defiant, saying that his meeting with the president was to call Trump’s bluff.

“I’m calling their bluff by saying, you said you want access to the DMV database for TTP? I’ll give it to you,” he said, according to CNN.

“I don’t believe that’s what they want,” he said. “I believe they just want political noise because they really want to make their argument about immigration.”

Cuomo and his office say they believe the feds really just want access to the DMV database so they can hunt down illegal aliens who have been given driver’s licenses.

“DHS claimed they wanted this information to determine qualifications for the TTP, but it is a sham because they just want access to undocumented immigrants’ personal information, and as the Governor said, we are never going to give them that,” the governor’s communications director, Dani Lever, told CNN.

But with his state’s legal residents likely infuriated by the decision of Cuomo and the Democratic legislature to prioritize illegal immigrants, which will cause travelers to face longer lines at airports and border crossings, the governor’s choices are limited.

“Today, we sent a letter to New York indicating because they took these measures that New York residents are no longer eligible to enroll in these Trusted Traveler Programs,” acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said last week.

“They can’t enroll or re-enroll in these Trusted Travel Programs that Customs and Border Protection offers because we no longer have access to make sure that they meet those program requirements,” he said.

“New York’s ‘Green Light Law’ is ill-conceived and the Department is forced to take this action to ensure the integrity of our Trusted Traveler Programs. It’s very clear: this irresponsible action has consequences,” Wolf added in a DHS statement.

“CBP is able to offer Trusted Traveler Programs like Global Entry because we are able to use DMV data to make an evidence-based assessment that those individuals who seek this benefit are low risk and meet the eligibility requirements. Without the DMV information, we aren’t able to make that assessment. We must do our job,” he said.

There are consequences for breaking the law, and additional consequences for crossing President Trump.

Cuomo is learning that the hard way.

President Donald Trump is reaching people that many believed could never be reached by a Republican president or presidential candidate.

The evidence of that is plentiful in the deep blue state of New Jersey, where Trump is going to spend his Tuesday night.

The president will be on hand for a rally in the Garden State, a state most experts believe is a lost cause for the GOP.

But that has not always been the case. New Jersey voted for a Republican president in 1972, 1976, 1980, 1984 and 1988, according to 270towin.

The president’s staff either senses a shift in the state back to its politics of old or they are taking a shot in the dark.

Judging by the response so far, at least according to an interview the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump gave to WPGG, an earth-shaking shift could be taking place.

Lara, who is the wife of Eric Trump, said that a whopping 175,000 tickets had been requested for the rally, which she said is a record for any of Trump’s rallies.

She said that the response was so great that the president’s campaign is planning to do another New Jersey rally in the future.

As someone who has lived in New Jersey for more than four decades, this writer can tell you that that type of response for a Republican is mind-boggling.

“The president of the United States is coming here to South Jersey to the 2nd District,” rallygoer Duke Reale, who arrived around 2 p.m. on Sunday for the Tuesday rally, told WABC-TV. “It’s wonderful.”

“It’s just history in the making for the generation ahead of me,” Selena Wollk, another Trump supporter, said. “And it’s just a once in a lifetime event.”

The play to go to South Jersey is a wise move because of its proximity to Pennsylvania, a state Trump would love to win again in 2020.

“New Jersey has been a blue state for a long time,” rallygoer Ed Talmo told WABC. “I think just by the turnout hours and days before the event, it just shows his presence is really wanted in New Jersey.”

Due to the large number of people who want to attend the event, and the fact that it will be held in the 7,500-seat capacity Wildwoods Convention Center, a large monitor is being erected outside the convention center.

“This is like being in Disneyland for Trump supporters,” supporter Justin Mack said. “This is like being Christmas, 5 years old. This is the best day of my life.”

“Being born and raised in Wildwood, it is just incredible experience to have a sitting president visit your town and bring this many people together,” Pam Byrne Gentek, another fan of the president, said.

Could we be witnessing another Reagan 1984 scenario in which the incumbent president scores victories in 49 states? Probably not, but with the colossal failure impeachment has been, anything is possible.

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg with ridiculous accusations of enabling white supremacy.

The Congresswoman made the statement during a hearing before The House on Wednesday when she asked the CEO if he would remove Republican ads that she believed contained lies.

When Zuckerberg informed her that he would err on the side of fairness for all, a concept she did not like, she began to make her accusations.

Rush Transcript:

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Would I be able to run advertisements on Facebook targeting Republicans in primaries saying that they voted for the Green New Deal?

I mean, if you’re not fact checking political advertisements, I’m just trying to understand the bounds here of what’s fair game.”

ZUCKERBERG: “I don’t know the answer to that off the top of my head.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “So you don’t know if I’ll be able to do that?”

ZUCKERBERG: “I think probably.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Do you see a potential problem here with a complete lack of fact checking on political advertisements?”

ZUCKERBERG: “Congresswoman, I think lying is bad. And I think if you were to run an ad that had a lie, that would be bad.

That’s different from it being — in our position, the right thing to do to prevent your constituents or people in an election from seeing that you had lied —”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “So we can — so you won’t take down lies or you will take down lies? It’s a pretty simple yes or no.”

ZUCKERBERG: “Congresswoman —“

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “I’m not talking about spin. I’m talking about actual disinformation.”

ZUCKERBERG: “Yes, in most cases, in a democracy, I believe that people should be able to see for themselves what politicians that they may or may not vote for are saying and judge their character for themselves.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “So you won’t take them down? You may flag that it’s wrong, but you won’t take it down?”

ZUCKERBERG: “Congresswoman, it depends on the context that it shows up, organic post, ads.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “One question. One more question. In your ongoing dinner parties with far-right figures, some of who advanced conspiracy theory that white supremacy is a hoax, did you discuss so-called social media bias against conservatives and do you believe there’s a bias?”

ZUCKERBERG: “Congresswoman — sorry, I don’t remember everything that was in the question.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “That’s okay. I’ll move on. Can you explain why you’ve named ‘The Daily Caller,’ a publication well-documented with ties to white supremacists, as an official fact checker for Facebook?”

ZUCKERBERG: “Congresswoman, sure. We actually don’t appoint the independent fact checkers. They go through an independent organization called The Independent Fact-Checking Network that has a rigorous standard for who they allow to serve as a fact checker.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “So you would say that white supremacists-tied publications meet a rigorous standard for fact-checking? Thank you.”

ZUCKERBERG: “Congresswoman, I would say that we’re not the one assessing that standard. The International Fact-Checking Network is the one who is setting that standard.”

President Donald Trump has said that The New York Times, the leading newspaper of The Resistance, colluded with the FBI against him.

“Just revealed that the Failing and Desperate New York Times was feeding false stories about me, & those associated with me, to the FBI.

“This shows the kind of unprecedented hatred I have been putting up with for years with this Crooked newspaper. Is what they have done legal?

“This Russia Collusion Hoax was perpetrated in part by people inside the government, and in part by a compliant (Fake News) media.” Mollie Hemingway.

“@TuckerCarlson @foxandfriends The facts are starting to pour out. Stay tuned!” he said in a series of tweets on Friday.

The Washington Examiner reported that The Times was giving stories about the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to the FBI to investigate.

“Wanted to flag you on something. Three of my colleagues are working on a story about the Russia investigation,” Times reporter Michael Schmidt said to FBI Assistant Director for Public Affairs Michael Kortan in a letter.

“They’re told that Jared Kushner is among the individuals who the F.B.I. is scrutinizing for their meetings with Russians,” he said.

“My colleagues were told that Ambassador Kislyak, after meeting Kushner and General Flynn in early December at Trump Tower, set up a meeting with Kushner and a Russian banker.

“Kushner ultimately met with the Russian banker. The banker worked for Alpha Bank. Thanks. Mike,” he said in the letter dated March 24, 2017.

That letter was then forwarded to the infamous agent Peter Strzok, and it was not the first time Strzok colluded with the media.

Strzok and Page had an email exchange on April 10, 2017 in which they talked about getting a preview of a Times report.

“The editing is nearing completion and we have one last shot to hear what the end result is,” was said in the email titled “NYT Last Shot.”

“Do you have time later today or tomorrow that is convenient for a listening session? Likely by phone in Mike’s office,” it said.

House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi has shown her hypocrisy as she has decided she will not release her tax returns.

Since the day President Donald Trump entered The White House, and before, Pelosi has whined about wanting President Trump to release his tax returns.

She even sponsored a bill, H.R. 1, that would require presidential candidates in 2020 and beyond (read President Trump) to release their tax returns.

But now it is she who has decided that she will not unveil her tax returns for the American citizens to review for themselves.

The woman who is the third person in line to be President of The United States is a major hypocrite and has a novel excuse for not sharing her taxes.

Pelosi’s Chief of Staff Drew Hammill told CNSNews that Pelosi “will gladly release her tax returns if and when she runs for president.”

As she is a 79-year-old it is highly unlikely that she will run for president, but, then again, Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders are.

Either way, as the person who is third in line for the presidency, if she wants others to show their tax returns she should lead by example.

CNSNews.com asked Speaker Pelosi’s Press Spokesperson Taylor Griffin and Communications Director Ashley Etienne these questions:

H.R. 1, which Speaker Nancy Pelosi supports, would require the president and vice president to release their current tax return and their tax returns from the last 9 years. It states: “With respect to each taxable year for an individual who is the President or Vice President, not later than the due date for the return of tax for the taxable year, such individual shall submit to the Federal Election Commission a copy of the individual’s income tax returns for the taxable year and for the 9 preceding taxable years.”

Here are my questions:

1. Does Speaker Pelosi support legally requiring the speaker of the House to release his or her tax returns?

2. Will Speaker Pelosi release her tax returns for this year and the previous 9 years? Yes or no?

“H.R. 1 would legally require the president and vice president to release their tax returns. Should House Speaker Pelosi be required to release her tax returns? Yes or no?” CNS News asked Rep. Hakeem Jeffries on Feb. 13.

“Well, that’s a question that I think you should direct to Speaker Pelosi,” Rep. Jeffries said.

Politico caught the exchange and tweeted it. A tweet that caught the attention of Hammill.

President Donald Trump’s attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, is getting to the bottom of foreign interference in our elections.

But suddenly the Democrats are angry about it, and that is because he is getting to the bottom of the Ukraine’s attempt to help the Democrats, Fox News reported.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said in an interview Thursday that he plans to travel to Ukraine to push the country’s leadership on several probes that may prove “very, very helpful” to President Trump, as Republicans continue looking to turn the tables on Democrats and prove that they — not the GOP — were the party that improperly conspired with foreign actors.

Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky, who takes office in June, will assume stewardship of two major ongoing investigations. One concerns evidence that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton campaign may have worked with Ukrainians to illegally help Clinton by revealing damaging information about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The other investigation pertains to allegations that former Vice President Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor in order to take the heat off the prosecutor’s probe into a company that employed his son as a board member.

“I am going to tell him what I know about the people that are surrounding him, and how important it is to do a full, complete and fair investigation,” Giuliani said.

“We’re not meddling in an election; we’re meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do,” he said.

“And this isn’t foreign policy — I’m asking them to do an investigation that they’re doing already and that other people are telling them to stop.

“And I’m going to give them reasons why they shouldn’t stop it because that information will be very, very helpful to my client, and may turn out to be helpful to my government.”

Last week, Ukraine’s embassy confirmed that a DNC insider reached out in 2016 to raise concerns about Manafort, given his previous work in the country.

“All ideas floated by [the DNC contractor] were related to approaching a Member of Congress with a purpose to initiate hearings on Paul Manafort or letting an investigative journalist ask President Poroshenko a question about Mr. Manafort during his public talk in Washington, D.C.,” Ukraine’s ambassador to the U.S., Valeriy Chaly, said. “The embassy representatives unambiguously refused to get involved in any way, as we were convinced that this is a strictly U.S. domestic matter.”

Ukraine’s investigation into interference with the U.S. election commenced after an unearthed audio recording showed that a senior Ukrainian anticorruption official apparently admitted to leaking Manafort’s financial information in 2016 — including his ties to pro-Russian actors in Ukraine — to benefit Clinton. The eventual leak of the so-called “black ledger” files led to Manafort’s abrupt departure from the Trump campaign.

Michigan Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib, like every American, had very strong feelings of fear in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Unlike every other American, Rep. Tlaib, one of three Muslims in Congress, was afraid of her fellow Americans and not the terrorists.

The controversial representative, who stated about President Donald trump that she wants to “impeach that m****rf****r,” made the statement in an interview with “The Makers.”

“I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened. And I was– I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time,” she said.

“I immediately called my brothers and told them to be very careful who you hang out with, telling my sisters, you know, just be real careful out there, and being really afraid of my fellow Americans.”

“It really pushed me to be more involved, and I got really curious and really angry,” the representative said.

“And I think that combination got me, you know, in front of a number of issues in the city of Detroit,” she said, The Blaze reported.

Tlaib came under scrutiny earlier in April for defending comments that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) made about 9/11 during a CAIR conference.

In March, Omar seemed to diminish the horror of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, saying that the attacks took place because “some people did something.”

Tlaib defended Omar during an MSNBC appearance.

“[People] do that all the time, especially women of color, they take our words out of context because they’re afraid because we speak truth, we speak truth to power,” Tlaib said. “This is just pure racist act.

“My sister, Ilhan Omar, what she was talking about, was uplifting people by supporting their civil liberties and civil rights,” Tlaib added. “She has always, always condemned any strategy, especially of a person directly impacted by a refugee herself.”

Tlaib said that the criticism filled her with rage.

“The fact that people are taking [Omar’s] words out of context and endangering the life of Rep. Omar is immoral, it’s wrong, and it needs to be called out by many colleagues in saying they need to stop, stop targeting her this way,” she said. “It’s absolutely putting her life in danger.”

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took the stage at SXSW this weekend and compared the United States to garbage.

“What’s really hard for people to sometimes see is that we are on this path of a slow erosion, and a slow slow slow just like — move away from what we’ve always been,” she said.

“You won’t even realize that you’ve drifted a hundred miles,” she said, suggested America has moved from where it should be.

“So when someone’s talking about ‘our core,’ they’re like, ‘oh, this is radical,’ but it isn’t radical. This is what we’ve always been,” the 29-year-old said, saying that socialism is a core American value.

“I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are but where we are is not a good thing,” she said.

“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” she said.

“So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country,” she said.

“And it’s this whole tragedy of the commons type of thinking where it’s like because these one, this one specific group of people, that you are already kind of subconsciously primed to resent, you give them a different reason that’s not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist caricature,” she said.

“It gives people a logical reason, a ‘logical’ reason to say, ‘oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net,’” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“And this idea of like, ten percent better than garbage, it shouldn’t be what we settle for,” she said.

A sitting representative in the United States Congress saying that America is 10 percent better than garbage.

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has continued her controversial nature in an interview where she bashed former President Obama.

In the interview published Friday she mocked the former president’s “hope and change” slogan as a “mirage.”

“Recalling the ‘caging of kids’ at the U.S.-Mexico border and the ‘droning of countries around the world’ on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor,” Politico said.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies,” she said.

“They just were more polished than he was,” she said. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore.”

“We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile,” she said.

The Minnesota representative who courts controversy also went after her fellow new Democrat representatives who are not part of her Squad with New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“I don’t believe that tiptoeing is the way to win the hearts and the minds of the people,” she said.

“I get saddened by some of my freshman colleagues who can’t understand that within their districts the idea of Medicare for All is extremely popular,” Omar said.

“The Green New Deal is a very popular idea in their districts. Making sure that we have a final fix to our broken immigration system is very popular in their districts,” she said.

“What they pay attention to is the rhetoric that says, ‘This is a red-to-blue district, you have to be careful, you can’t talk about these policies,’” she said.“Well, in reality, these people are like everyone else: They struggle with the cost of health care, they struggle with our broken infrastructure, they struggle with having an economy that brings them into the 21st century. And we have to be willing to have those conversations,” she said.
