Democrat Steny Hoyer mentioned “prejudice” and “racism” when referring on the House floor to Republican Jason Smith of Missouri telling a Democrat to “go back to Puerto Rico.” Hoyer’s comments came during a floor fight Thursday that led to a vote on a Democrat spending bill getting delayed until a do-over next week.
That Democrat, Tony Cardenas, is the chairman of BOLD PAC, which led 30 Democrats to a trip in Puerto Rico during the government shutdown with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives. Also, Cardenas is Mexican-American, not Puerto Rican.
“Congressman Smith’s comment was directed at all the Democrats who were vacationing down in Puerto Rico last weekend during the government shutdown, not towards any individual member,” Jason Smith’s office said in a statement.
Here is Steny Hoyer’s disgustingly misleading display:
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 islandin 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.
A photo surfaced of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez enjoying himself on a Puerto Rican beach.

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.
CRUNKPAC: Pro-MAGA Rapper Debuts Roger Stone as His Hype Man at Impromptu Concert in Orlando
This is based.
Freed and exonerated political operative Roger Stone served as a hype man for a pro-Trump rapper performing outside of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Fla. this weekend.
Stone was the hype man for rhyme-spitter MC TRUMPISTHECHOSENONE as they appeared in front of a truck with Trump as John Rambo painted on the side of the vehicle. Stone did his trademark peace signs, a tribute to his fellow political prisoner, the late former President Richard Nixon, who was also pardoned by a Republican president after being set up by deep state forces.

TMZ noted that MC TRUMPISTHECHOSENONE’s lyrics were relatively controversial, celebrating the patriots involved in the infamous mostly-peaceful protest that occurred on Jan. 6 in and around the U.S. Capitol.
Big League Politics has reported on Stone’s conversion to Christianity as he endured the trials and tributions throughout his federal railroading:
Recently commuted political operative Roger Stone has two men to thank for his newfound freedom: President Donald Trump, and, more importantly, Jesus Christ.
Stone has been involved in political dirty tricks throughout his career and has never been a member of the Christian Right, to put it mildly, but his attempted railroading has caused him to become close to Jesus Christ and discover his faith.
He told CBN News about how he attended an outdoor church service in Florida held by Franklin Graham in January. This was during a low point of his life, and Stone finally summoned the courage to accept Christ as his savior.
“At that moment, I felt the calling,” Stone said. “I stood up with 500 other people. I wasn’t the slightest bit embarrassed. I confess that I was a sinner. I repeated a pledge that he recited, and it was as if a cement block was lifted off my chest. I can’t even explain it.”
“I was never scared. I was never worried. I was completely confident that the Lord would guide the president to do the right thing,” he added.
Although Stone admits to being part of some shady operations throughout his political career, he does not consider his involvement in Trump’s presidential victory in 2016 being among them. He maintains that he behaved with integrity and told the truth while helping push Trump to the White House.
“I don’t regret anything that I did in 2016 because I didn’t break the law,” Stone said to CBN News. “They wanted me to lie, to bear false witness against the president in return for some kind of leniency.”
Stone claims that his newfound faith has made him at peace with the situation, and he does not seek vengeance against the deep state, fake news, and Democrat Party hacks who tried to destroy his life.
“Here’s the big difference. In the old days, I would have wanted revenge. I would have wanted to take revenge against every one of them but now I’ve realized that vengeance is God’s, it’s not mine,” he said.
“I no longer am obsessed with the Sicilian concept of revenge, which generally speaking is a dish that tastes best when eaten cold,” Stone added.
Even though Stone is an adherent in Jesus Christ, he is still not opposed to getting crunk when the time is right, and the time was certainly right at CPAC with Trump supporters flexing their muscle and exerting their dominance over the Republican Party.
