BREAKING – O’Keefe Drops 3rd Undercover Bombshell=> CNN Producer: “Voters Stupid as ‘Sh*t” (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Fri, 06/30/2017 - 10:46

James O’Keefe strikes again!

Project Veritas dropped a 3rd bombshell undercover video of CNN early Friday morning as part of a series dubbed ‘American Pravda’. In this video, CNN Associate Producer, Jimmy Carr trashes American voters by calling them ‘stupid as sh*t’. He also trashed Kellyanne Conway saying that “she looks like she got hit with a shovel”.

The first video released by Project Veritas late Monday night shows CNN Producer John Bonifield admitting the Trump-Russia story is B.S. but they continue to push the false narrative for ‘ratings’.

Bonifield went on to say that the CEO of CNN, Jeff Zucker demanded that his news channel get back to the Russia story that is a ratings winner for CNN.

Bonifield laughed off the notion that the media has an ethical responsibility and said ‘it’s a business’ and ‘they gotta do what they gotta do to make money’.

The second video was released by Project Veritas on Wednesday. It shows one of CNN’s most prominent left-leaning political commentators, Van Jones admitting that the Russia story is a ‘Nothing Burger’.

O’Keefe teased his Twitter followers on Thursday about the 3rd video:

 

We’re very excited about the footage we will release tomorrow in the AM. It takes this to a new level. #Checkmate #AmericanPravda

O’Keefe taunted CNN’s Jim Acosta:

Your world is going to get rocked early tomorrow. We are so excited… https://t.co/siWEO6PvaR

— James O’Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) June 29, 2017

O’Keefe tweeted out a video of Van Jones accusing Project Veritas of releasing edited footage, with the caption, “Van Jones will be eating these very words on the morning. Stay tuned…”

CNN Associate Producer calls voters ‘stupid as sh*t’ when asked about the intellect of the American voter.

PV Journalist: “Would it be fair to question the, I don’t want to be rude here. I’ll be careful how I put it, you’re apparently some percentage Irish or Scottish. Would it be fair to question the intellect of the American voter?”

Jimmy Carr: “Oh no. They’re stupid as sh*t.”

Jimmy Carr continued to bash the Trump White House and said that Kellyanne Conway is an ‘awful woman’ who “looks like she got hit with a shovel”.

Jimmy Carr also brought up the fact that their ratings are soaring because they reporting on Russia, ISIS etc.

CBO Says GOP Health Care Bill Cuts Medicaid 35 Percent By 2036

Newsy - Fri, 06/30/2017 - 10:39

Watch Video

Senate Republicans are still making tweaks to their health care bill, but the Congressional Budget Office has put the current version back under the microscope.

The CBO looked at the health care bill's long-term effects on Medicaid. It found federal spending on the program would be 26 percent lower by 2026 than it would be without the bill and 35 percent lower by 2036.

Medicaid spending would still go up, but funding caps would constrain the program's growth rate. Earlier CBO estimates said the bill would trim $772 billion off Medicaid spending over the next 10 years.

Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden was one of the senators who asked for the CBO analysis. He said the findings show that the GOP bill is "a heartless scheme that no elected representative of the people should support."

The GOP probably won't be able to release a revised draft of its bill until after the July 4 recess. That bill still needs to pass the Senate and be reconciled with the House version of the bill by the end of September.

President Trump Offered to Officiate Mika and Joe Scarborough’s Wedding

GatewayPundit - Fri, 06/30/2017 - 10:07

In August 2016 before the general election Republican candidate Donald Trump tweeted out his disgust of the Morning Joe hosts and threatened to reveal the “real story” of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski’s relationship.

This came after months of months of criticism the Republican presidential candidate.

Some day, when things calm down, I’ll tell the real story of @JoeNBC and his very insecure long-time girlfriend, @morningmika. Two clowns!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 22, 2016

“Some day, when things calm down, I’ll tell the real story of @JoeNBC and his very insecure long-time girlfriend, @morningmika. Two clowns!”

Trump claimed that he would share information about the personal relationship between the two hosts — the subject of much speculation.

In early May Page Six reported that Mika and Joe were engaged.

Shortly after the announcement President Trump offered to officiate the wedding! (Hah-hah!)
Page Six reported:

President Trump wants to marry Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

The pair, who Page Six exclusively revealed got engaged this weekend, discussed marriage back in January at the White House — in the presence of the POTUS and Jared Kushner.

Scarborough, 54, told Vanity Fair that Trump, 70, suggested they tie the knot at Mar-A-Lago or the White House.

“That’s when Jared interrupted and said, ‘Hey, you know what? I’ve got my license. I could marry you,’” Scarborough recalled.

Not to be outdone, Scarborough claims that Trump snapped back, “‘Why would you marry them? They could have the president of the United States marry them.’”

Of course that was before President Trump tweeted out this on Thursday.

…to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!

Mika Brzezinski Called President Trump: Narcissist, Ignorant, Stupid, Mentally Ill, etc – In Less Than a Minute

GatewayPundit - Fri, 06/30/2017 - 09:39

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Mika Brzezinski and her husband to be Joe Scarborough constantly berate the current US President Donald Trump every day on MSNBC’s terribly unpopular “Morning Joe” show. Their disregard and disrespect for the President is consistent with other liberal main stream media outlets because the President is a Republican.

Earlier this month Mika went on an all out assault on the US President. In less than one minute she called President Trump – “Narcissist”, “Mentally Ill’, “Not Well”, “Ignorant”, “Stupid”, “says he can grab women anywhere” and insinuates that he might have homosexual tendencies.

President Trump apparently had enough yesterday as he tweeted the following in two tweets on Twitter:

I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..

The President’s second tweet said the following:

…to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!

Many on the left and some top Republicans thought the President was out of line.

President Trump obviously felt that Mika was out of line and he let her have it. 

When this President swings he knocks people out.

Auntie’s Off Her Meds Again… Democrat Leader Maxine Waters Wants President Trump Impeached AND Exiled

When impeachment is not enough.,,
Democrat leader Auntie Maxine wants Trump impeached because he posts mean tweets.

But that’s not all. Waters wants President Trump impeached and then exiled!

Women are outraged and fed up with this President. Impeachment isn't enough. Should we explore exile?

Oh, Auntie!
It doesn’t work that way.

She followed up that tweet with this jewel on Putin and Trump.

When Trump goes to kiss Putin's ring at the G20 meeting, maybe he should just return to Russia w/ him & their favorite amb. Sergey Kislyak.

Trump agenda inches along as Congress leaves for July Fourth break

JamieDupree - Fri, 06/30/2017 - 03:05

Struggling to resolve differences over a GOP health care overhaul bill in the Senate, Republicans in the Congress left Washington, D.C. for a July Fourth break with unresolved questions about a series of major items on President Donald Trump’s agenda, as legislative work in Congress during the month of June brought the White House some minor successes, but Republicans are still searching for workable plans to advance tax cuts, the budget and much more.

Here’s a run down on where things stand on Capitol Hill:

1. Health care remains the bottleneck for the Trump Agenda. It was eight weeks ago that jubilant Republicans from the House gathered with President Trump in the White House Rose Garden to celebrate the narrow approval of a GOP health care bill. “We’re going to get this passed through the Senate,” the President said – but so far, that hasn’t happened, as GOP Senators were forced this week to delay a vote on a revised health bill until mid-July at the earliest. It may be that Republicans will be able to figure out the magic formula in coming weeks, but as of now, the central campaign vow from Mr. Trump and GOP lawmakers remains in limbo in the Congress – and until that’s finished, other big ticket items remain on hold as well.

Some of the Fake News Media likes to say that I am not totally engaged in healthcare. Wrong, I know the subject well & want victory for U.S.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2017

2. Trump suggests approving only a health repeal bill. President Trump on Friday morning urged the Senate to approve a bill that repeals the Obama health law, and then have the Senate worry about the details later of a new health care system. This has been talked about before by Republicans, but has gone nowhere, because you would need 60 votes for such a move, in overcome a Senate filibuster. The idea was quickly seconded by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE). But it has little chance of succeeding, without the support of Democrats.

If Republican Senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 30, 2017

3. Tax cuts aren’t going anywhere fast either. Earlier this year, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin vowed to get a tax reform package through the Congress before August. Few people on Capitol Hill believed that prediction, and not only have no votes occurred in the House and Senate, but no tax bill has been unveiled by either the White House or Republicans in the Congress. The plan right now is to roll out a proposal after Labor Day. Republican leaders still want to use the expedited process of “budget reconciliation” for tax cuts – which would avoid a filibuster in the Senate – but the problem with that is the GOP hasn’t even taken the first step to approve a budget resolution for 2018. Tweets like this from the President are simply not accurate when it comes to the progress in Congress on tax legislation.

The massive TAX CUTS/REFORM that I have submitted is moving along in the process very well, actually ahead of schedule. Big benefits to all!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2017

4. No House deal yet on a budget resolution. GOP leaders in the House had planned to get a 2018 budget blueprint through the House Budget Committee this week, but differences among Republicans over how to structure that, what level of spending cuts to approve, and what spending reforms should be embraced, led to a delay in the vote. The ‘budget resolution’ is supposed to be approved in Congress by April 15 of each year – we are now about to turn the calendar to July. If Republicans really want to use the 2018 budget reconciliation process for tax reform, they will have to reach a deal on the budget resolution in July – or it will further delay big issues like tax reform and infrastructure. Failure to pass a budget resolution so far is a big deal for Republicans, who remain at odds over the details, a very similar story to health care.

GOP must pass budget resolution soon or else they can't do tax reform/cuts through filibuster-proof reconciliation process. High stakes. https://t.co/dmzQ7QLmEJ

— Rebecca Kysar (@rebeccakysar) June 27, 2017

5. Without a budget resolution, no action on 2018 spending bills. Not only is the budget resolution several months behind schedule, but the individual bills that fund the federal government are slow out of the gate as well, as it’s almost assured that the Congress will not get its budget work done on time by the end of September, (the end of the fiscal year). Some GOP lawmakers have even floated the idea of jamming everything together into one big bill in July – rather than waiting until the fall, or even right before Christmas. The biggest problem right now is that no one is quite sure how much money will be spent on the Pentagon and non-defense spending, making it difficult to put together a dozen appropriations bills. This was not what Republican leaders had drawn up on the white board after winning the White House last November. They were going to get their work done, and done on time.

Just 4 times in 40 years that Congress finished its budget work on time (by October 1): 1996, 1994, 1988 & 1976

— Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) September 22, 2016

6. The lack of action comes amid rising deficit estimates. President Trump and Republicans in Congress have talked a lot about cutting the budget and reining in the deficit, but as mentioned above, nothing has really been done on that front. In the meantime, a still unexplained drop in tax revenues coming in to Uncle Sam has helped push estimates for this year’s deficit much higher. The Congressional Budget Office on Thursday said the 2017 deficit would be 24 percent higher than their estimate from back in January, going up $134 billion to an estimated $693 billion deficit. Why? The CBO mainly blames, “surprisingly weak tax collections.” “One reason for the sharp rise in the deficit in 2017 is the slow growth in revenue collections through May and the slow growth expected for the rest of the year,” the CBO wrote in a new report. That is not good news for the Trump Administration.

CBO ups deficit projection for 2017, to $693 billion – highest since 2012 and up $134 billion from January estimate.

7. One prime example of how bipartisanship can still work. Something that did get done in the month of June was a bill that was sent to the President’s desk on reform at the Veterans Affairs Department, as it had very strong support in both parties. The plan gives the VA more legal leeway to fire underperforming employees, all in an effort to improve health care services for veterans. It’s a reminder that while Republicans are stuck on health care, taxes, infrastructure and more right now, there are ways to get things done with a buy-in from both political parties. The White House though complained that it didn’t get enough attention. “Things like the success at the VA barely get covered,” said spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

.@POTUS and I are working together to bring reform to VA. https://t.co/Vd5c52Jx2w

8. GOP, White House pleased with moves on immigration. From a pair of bills passed on Thursday in the House that crack down on illegal immigrants, to the legal green light for the Trump travel order and tougher measures overall at the southern border with Mexico, Republicans are very pleased with the direction of the Trump Administration on immigration. The House approved one plan to toughen penalties against illegal immigrants who are deported, and then re-enter the U.S. illegally. Another bill would withhold federal law enforcement grant money from local governments that refuse to cooperate with the feds on detaining illegal immigrants. While those bills face an uphill fight in the Senate, the GOP clearly feels like this is an issue that plays well with Trump voters all across the country.

Good news out of the House with the passing of 'No Sanctuary for Criminals Act.' Hopefully Senate will follow.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017

9. Congress will spend most of the next two months away from D.C. Labor Day is just over nine weeks away. The legislative work schedule for the House has members in session for 13 days – three weeks in July, and then the Congress is off for a five week break into September. That means GOP leaders will have to choose wisely on what to get done in July. Some Republicans are urging the leadership to cancel the August Recess, but that seems like a long shot right now – unless a certain occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue started weighing in on the need for Congress to stay at work during their scheduled vacation time away from the humidity of the D.C. swamp. I know lots of people say they like it when Congress is out of session – but as I always counter, you can’t pass bills to reform things if you’re not at work on Capitol Hill.
