As the Democratic Party takes control of the House of Representatives, their starting line-up of committee chairmen reveals an alarming trend: radicalism and socialism have found a home in the Democratic Party and now the halls of the House of Representatives.
Steeped in establishment politics, far too many rising Democratic “leaders” hail from a bygone era of radicalism and confrontation.
Radicals like Maxine Waters (CA-43) used to be easily dismissed as fringe figures of the far left. Not anymore. Now, the firebrand, Antifa-inspiring congresswoman from California is the new chair of the House Financial Services Committee – a frightening prospect indeed.
The incoming chairwoman has previously expressed a desire for the federal government to seize control of oil companies, led a group of celebrities in a chant to impeach President Trump last fall, and has repeatedly called for mobs to harass administration officials.
Waters’ years of radicalism are made worse by the fact that her family personally profited from her congressional position every step of the way, raking in more than $1 million with her assistance.
It’s no wonder that the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington have designated Waters “Most Corrupt member of Congress” in 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, and 2017.
Waters is hardly the only retro-radical character in the House Democrat leadership. Jerry Nadler (NY-10), the new chair of the Judiciary Committee, is also considered one of the most liberal lawmakers in the entire chamber.
This self-described “liberal lion” was recently overheard on a train telling his cronies that he wants to go “all-in” on the Russia conspiracy theory and impeach both President Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh once Democrats assume control of the House in January.
Just in case there are any lingering doubts about his extremist ideological inclinations, Nadler has also dismissed most of the Democrats’ likely 2020 contenders as “too conservative.”
The chairman of the Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (MD-7), is all-in for launching an endless flurry of frivolous probes against President Trump as soon as he gets control of this powerful committee.
Cummings also holds radical views on immigration, insisting that we allow thousands of “caravaners” into the country illegally.
Moreover, Cummings has backed proposals to give federal workers and public sector unions even greater leverage over the government. Make no mistake — his tenure as head of the Oversight Committee will be just as radical as the rest of his career.
Even seemingly establishment Democrats are prepared to implement a takedown strategy against President Trump. Just take a look at the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff (CA-28).
As a congressman, Schiff pushed for a blatantly unconstitutional bill to block President Trump’s pardon power, tried to repeal the Lawful Commerce in Arms Act — which would allow liberal activists to bankrupt the gun industry — and proposed a constitutional amendment banning conservative speech under the guise of campaign finance reform.
Schiff also believes it’s his job to “check the ambition of an imperial and erratic president,” and he’ll surely use the Intelligence Committee’s broad powers to carry out that threat.
Just like so many of his colleagues, House Ethics Committee Chairman Ted Deutch (FL-22) has called for President Trump’s impeachment, accusing him of obstructing justice last year.
Deutch has a legislative record that fully exposes his radical liberal ideology. For example, Deutch pushed for a 2017 bill that would have created $200 million in “climate change bonds.” And like the rest of his Democratic colleagues, Deutch voted against giving hard-working Americans a pay raise in the form of the Trump tax cuts.
The Sun Sentinel has aptly described Deutch as “one of the most liberal members of the Florida congressional delegation” with “a lifetime [liberal] score of 95 percent.”
The most radical elements of the Democratic caucus have taken control of some of the most powerful committees in the House of Representatives. These faces, however, are not new — they are the same old liberals who have driven the party’s agenda for decades.
Nancy Pelosi may talk of bipartisanship, but that’s only because she knows she can rely on the true-blue extremists leading the major House committees to advance the Democrats’ real agenda of uncompromising obstruction.
Make no mistake about it — there’s nothing new about these old establishment Democrats whose ideas are just radical retreads that will act against the interests of the American people.
Gone is the party of President John F. Kennedy.

House Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop
Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.
House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.
They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).
“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”
“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.
However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.
Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:
Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.
Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.
According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.
Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…
President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.
“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”
Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
