30 Democrats Party in Puerto Rico During Government Shutdown

Published

on

Despite an ongoing government shutdown reaching unprecedented lengths, it appears that many Congressional Democrats haven’t let potential negotiations with the President get in the way of a celebrity-starred vacation to the tropical paradise of Puerto Rico.

At least 30 Democrats from the House and Senate are said to be kicking back on the island in a trip sponsored by lobbyists from companies like Facebook, Amazon, Comcast and Verizon. They’ll have a chance to view a showing of the hit musical Hamilton, and get acquainted with the show’s cast.

BOLD PAC, a political component of the ethnic-lobby House Hispanic Caucus, is said to have chartered a Boeing 737 to transport visitors to the Caribbean island, still said to be recovering from the effects of Hurricane Maria.

The fuss about government employees having to wait for an end to a shutdown to receive paychecks doesn’t seem to apply for these 30 Democrats, who are unwilling to cancel a luxurious trip to negotiate with Republicans on an end to the shutdown.

Perhaps Menendez should be more careful about signing himself up for lavish overseas trips. (Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States located in the Caribbean Sea.) The Senator was charged with accepting bribes in the form of gifts, most notably trips to the nearby Dominican Republic, where it’s alleged he was provided underaged prostitutes by a doctor named Salomon Melgen. Despite being charged by prosecutors in regards to the trips themselves, Menendez got off easy in a ‘not guilty’ ruling that left many anti-corruption advocates shaking their heads.

Hopefully Menendez will be inclined to act in a more responsible manner on this trip on account of being surrounded by his Democratic colleagues and corporate lobbyist handlers.

1,100 Liberal Prosecutors, Bureaucrats, Demand Bill Barr’s Resignation from DOJ

The letter is indicative of just how left-wing the Department of Justice’s culture has become.

Published

More than 1,100 former Department of Justice prosecutors and employees signed a letter released Sunday demanding that Attorney General Bill Barr resign from office.

The letter takes a staunchly partisan Democratic tone, leaving no doubt as to their partisan allegiances of the high-ranking government employees who have signed it. The letter claims that Barr is “doing the President’s personal bidding” for clamping down on a culture of corruption present within elements of the powerful government entity.

The liberal bureaucrats are especially upset with Barr’s intervention in the criminal case of a former Trump campaign advisor, Roger Stone. Stone was set to be sentenced to a draconian and lengthy prison sentence for process crimes that amount to no more than lying to congress, a witch hunt that had many James Comey-style elite DOJ employees smitten with glee. Barr intervened to overturn the sentencing goals of prosecutors tasked with the case, leading to several of them resigning in protest.

The moralistic and sanctimonious letter claims that Barr is somehow harming the credibility of the already controversial department, but the DoJ alumni that have openly endorsed it seem largely unaware that their own endorsement of a staunchly partisan and anti-Trump statement does far more to harm the already- questionable credibility of the department.

The letter from outraged bureaucrats is one of the latest incidences that suggest a liberal institutional bias prevailing at nearly every level of the Department of Justice. A chief FBI press officer was recently forced to resign after it was revealed that he accepted lavish gifts from New York Times and CNN reporters.

Also, as Stone remains lined up for a draconian prison sentence for conversations with government employees, anti-Trump agitator Andrew McCabe appears set to wholly escape any accountability for his naked partisanship revealed throughout the 2016 election.
