Lil Marco Joins Democrats on Senate Intel Committee and Refuses to Provide Support for Recent Garbage Report

GatewayPundit - Mon, 09/14/2020 - 22:11

Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, requested the notoriously corrupt Senate Intel Committee provide support for their recent bogus report that claimed Russia interfered with the 2016 election.  To no one’s surprise, the Intel Committee won’t comply.

The Washington Examiner reported earlier today:

The Republican and Democratic leaders on the Senate Intelligence Committee rejected a broad request from two Republican Senate leaders seeking access to the panel’s records to assist in their investigation into the Trump-Russia investigators.

Acting Chairman Marco Rubio of Florida and Vice Chairman Mark Warner of Virginia rejected a late August letter from Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, who said that they “respect the authority” of the Senate Intelligence Committee to protect its interests, adding that “ultimately, we have the right as United States Senators” to access the records.

“We note that your request of the Committee is made pursuant to Senate Rule 26, but fails to account for the unique authorities and obligations invested in this Committee through Senate Resolution 400 and respected over decades of Senate and Committee practice,” Rubio and Warner responded. “Accordingly, we must reject the absolutist interpretation of Rule 26 that you propose. If this Committee elects to share materials that it has collected and generated in the course of its investigation into Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, it will do so pursuant to these long-standing Committee rules, and specifically, the joint agreement of the Chairman and the Vice Chairman.”

The Examiner continued:

In August, Johnson argued that “it is Democrats who have sought out and disseminated Russian disinformation” because “it was the Democratic National Committee, together with cutouts for the Clinton campaign, that paid for and helped peddle the Steele dossier.”

Grassley and Johnson told the Senate Intelligence Committee they also wanted records related to the CIA’s contacts with Perkins Coie lawyers Michael Sussmann and Marc Elias. Elias hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which then hired British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the anti-Trump dossier. Both Sussmann and Elias had contact with Steele during the 2016 election.

The Conservative Treehouse explained why the Senate Intel Community won’t provide requested information to fellow Senators:

The reason and motives for the denial are simple, yet the majority of Americans have no idea…. The SSCI was the legislative entity, both republicans and democrats, who participated in the unlawful effort to remove President Trump from office. The risk of exposure is exactly why Mitch McConnell put Senator Marco Rubio on the committee as chairman to replace Richard Burr. The Senate was participating in the soft-coup.

The Senate Intel Community showed that although the Republicans chaired the committee, ugly crooked Democrat Mark Warner was the one running the committee.  Warner was involved in the coup and the committee released numerous reports without any supporting evidence that claimed Russia was interfering in the 2016 election.

No wonder Grassley and Johnson want to know what’s going on and no surprise the Intel Committee won’t provide any data.  Thank God Lil Marco didn’t win the 2016 Republican nomination for President.  His true colors are now coming out.

Netflix goes too far with “Cuties,” outrage continues

LifeZette - Mon, 09/14/2020 - 22:00

Across social media a battle is raging over a French film being shown on Netflix. The film is called “Cuties” and it features very young girls, some as young as 6, in sexually provocative clothing and situations.

Those who defend the film say it is an exercise of free speech and artistic license. They say it is merely avant garde, decry provincial American attitudes on sex, and say the film actually is against sexualization of children, but must show the practice to criticize it. Defenders of Netflix’s decision to air the film also accurately point to the fact that most who lambaste the film have not seen it. This analyst is guilty as charged in that department. Though I have read reviews from critics whom I trust and I don’t have to drink a motor oil and algae milkshake to know I will find it unappetizing.

Those like me who find the filmmakers have gone too far in the subject matter find the sexualization of children to be unacceptable in any context. I spoke to men and women across the country to see if my attitude was indeed provincial in regards to this film. And by French standards perhaps it is. By American standards it is in the mainstream.

Kim Kilbourne of Ohio said the film, “..makes excuses for perversity.” Lisa Marie Brody of Pennsylvania said, “Normalizing sexuality in children is vile and disgusting…The CEO of Netflix should be fired…This is not about free speech. This is about protecting children.” A male state government official in Florida, who prefers anonymity, said, “This is way over the edge. This is outright kiddie porn.” Virginia Dobel Lee of San Francisco said, “The film smacks of pedophilia. It tries to normalize the profound evil of it and take it out of the ‘thou shalt not’ category.” And Stacy Shea, a South Carolina GOP political operative said, “Netflix jumped the shark on this movie and now they’re trying to cover it up with these specious arguments.”

The free speech gambit is an interesting argument, as even famed Supreme Court jurist Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic.” Thus the interests of a society can trump the exercise of free speech. The argument that is is merely edgy and provocative could be used for anything no matter how repellent. Thus, a game show entitled “Let’s Rape!” would be normal cultural fare because it defies societal convention?

Netflix and the producers of the film have hit upon a public relations and free publicity bonanza by their choice of topic. If that was their goal they have achieved it. But to try and dress up both the young girls and their own motivations in the guise of artistic expression is a gross lie and rank hypocrisy. For even they probably know, there are some things that just aren’t done.
