On Thursday, President Donald Trump took shots at his political opponents in his first post-impeachment statements since the Senate acquitted him of articles of impeachments that were originally passed in the House.
“We’ve all been through a lot together. It’s been a very unfair situation,” he said before a cheering crowd.
“We’ve been going through this now for three years. It was evil, it was corrupt, it was dirty cops, it was leakers. It was a disgrace. Had I not fired James Comey, who was a disaster, by the way, it’s possible I wouldn’t even be standing here right now,” he added before shifting the discussion to his accomplishments.
“We’ve done more than any president, any administration, you look at all of the things we’ve done.”
According to a report from The New York Post, Trump predicted that the stock market would have tanked had he not been victorious in the 2016 election.
“That’s all our credit. One of the reasons it’s going up … and one of the reasons the stock market has gone up so much in the last few days is people think we’re doing so well, they liked the State of the Union speech,” Trump remarked while giving his extemporaneous speech.
“This is really not a news conference, it’s not a speech, it’s not anything, it’s just we’re sort of — it’s a celebration because we have something that just worked out. It worked out. We went through hell unfairly. Did nothing wrong. Did nothing wrong,” he said, while holding up a copy of the Washington Post with a banner headline that read, “Trump acquitted.”
“We first went through Russia, Russia, Russia. It was all bullshit,” he continued.
“Little did we know we were running against some very, very bad and evil people with fake dossiers, with all of these horrible, dirty cops that took these dossiers and did bad things. They knew all about it.”
The president’s legal team of Pat Cipollone, Jay Sekulow and Patrick Philbin had front-row seats for the statements. Trump thanked them for their service.
At Trump’s address were a group of Trump loyalists which included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, Georgia Congressman Doug Collins, and Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert.
Trump then took Congressman Adam Schiff, the leader of the House’s impeachment efforts, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to task.
“They made up facts. A corrupt politician named Adam Schiff made up my statement to the Ukrainian president,” he said about Schiff’s sloppy rendition of Trump’s July 25 call to Volodymyr Zelensky, which was the main catalyst behind the impeachment probe after Trump requested that Ukraine investigate Joe Biden.
“Adam Schiff is a vicious, horrible person. Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person, and she wanted to impeach a long time ago when she said, ‘I pray for the president.’ She doesn’t pray. She may pray but she prays for the opposite. But I doubt she prays at all. These are vicious people.”
The Senate acquittal represents Trump’s biggest victory over congressional Democrats.
These are areas where he should be focusing his attention instead of the previous episodes of Kabuki theater like Russiagate and impeachment.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
