Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) defeated an incumbent Republican in Michigan’s 8th Congressional district last year because of an unprecedented influx of outside money that she received due to her deep state connections, but her ties to the intelligence community may doom her chances for re-election.
Slotkin is taking the unpopular stance in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump, and she announced her position publicly during a contentious town hall at Oakland University in Rochester, MI on Monday morning.
“I want people to think about where we will be if it becomes normal to ask foreign governments to intervene in our political process,” Slotkin said in an attempt to rationalize her decision.
“What if that becomes normal? What if next time we have a Democratic president asking the Chinese government for a cyberattack, for something new, for some intrusion? For me, this is something I cannot abide, that I cannot accept,” she added.

In a Detroit Free Press op/ed published on Monday, Slotkin explained her belief that the President “illegally solicited the help of foreigners to influence the American political process.” She said she came to her decision despite the fact that it is politically unpopular, perhaps as a favor to the deep state that astroturfed her political star with dirty money.
“There are some decisions in life that have to be made based on what you know in your bones is right. And this is one of those times,” Slotkin wrote.
Her constituents are turning against her rapidly due to her participation in the railroading that has taken place against the President:
Trump backers in Michigan note that Slotkin’s district is rabidly pro-Trump, and she is representing interests in Washington D.C. rather than her voters.
“Trump supporters are fed up with the impeachment process. The do nothing Democrats need to be reminded by Michigan voters that President Trump is doing a great job,” said Meshawn Maddock, co-founder of Michigan Trump Republicans. “Trump won this District by over 7 percentage points in 2016. Now, Slotkin appears to listen to Nancy Pelosi more than voters in the 8th District.”
“Elissa Slotkin needs to consider the reality that she won an election when President Trump was not even on the ballot,” Maddock added. “In 2020, that won’t happen. Trump will be on the ballot and the 8th District is a conservative area. 8th District voters will deliver the message to Slotkin and to Washington, D.C. about what they think. Slotkin’s lock step with radical and do nothing Democrats to support the ‘impeachment’ hoax is a poor decision.”
Recent polls have indicated that impeachment has been a boon for President Trump’s re-election chances, and he is raising massive amounts of funds off of the witch hunt conducted by Democrats. The political establishment’s illicit scheme to overturn the 2016 presidential election is backfiring tremendously.
Slotkin, who was seemingly strategically planted in Michigan’s 8th district after a working as a CIA officer and Department of Defense official, may prove to be a bad investment for the special interests that put her into office. Her career may be finished next year because of her inability to serve her constituents.
Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan
Another victory for the war party.
Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.
The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.
The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.
“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.
“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.
“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”
The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.
“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.
“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.
The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
