Democrat Candidate Was Cut Off And Removed From The Floor!
A West Virginia candidate for the House of Delegates was removed after speaking for longer than her allotted time and demanding to be removed.
From The Hill:
A candidate for the West Virginia House of Delegates was reportedly cut off and removed from a hearing last week in the state's lower chamber on a piece of legislation regarding oil and gas drilling on private land.
During her testimony, Lissa Lucas spoke about her opposition to a bill that would require the approval of only 75 percent of landowners for oil and gas companies to drill on private land, according to the Huffington Post.
Currently, 100 percent of landowners in the state need to give approval, it added.
Lucas, a Democratic candidate in West Virginia's 7th District, also listed donations that state lawmakers have received from oil and gas companies, the news outlet added.
She was reportedly told during her testimony that she should not be making "personal comments" regarding members of the House Judiciary Committee.
“The people who are going to be speaking in favor of this bill are all going to be paid by the industry,” Lucas said, according to the Huffington Post.
“The people who are going to be voting on this bill are often also paid by the industry," she added.
“I have to keep this short because the public only gets a minute and 45 seconds while lobbyists can throw a gala at the Marriott with whiskey and wine and talk for hours to the delegates,” she added.
Her microphone was cut off during her testimony and her request for more time was denied, according to the Huffington Post.
Democrats Are Deliberately Thwarting Trump From Performing Basic Foreign Policy Functions!
Democrats in the U.S. Senate are refusing to confirm President Trump's nominee to be the ambassador to Germany.
From The Daily Caller:
It’s been five months since President Trump first nominated Richard Grenell to be the United States’ ambassador to Germany, and yet Grenell is still waiting for the Senate to confirm him so he can start his job.
Refusing to confirm Grenell not only impedes America’s foreign policy interests—Germany is one of America’s most important allies—but impedes historical progress as well: if confirmed, Grenell would be the highest-ranking openly gay diplomat in American history.
The absence of American diplomatic leadership in Berlin is painfully obvious in light of two recent developments, Grenell’s backers say.
The New York Times reported earlier this week that American and Russian spies tried to negotiate a deal last year for damaging information on President Trump that the Russians claimed to have, although they provided no evidence. The CIA’s Berlin station ran the secret negotiations, which according to the Times report extended into early this year — while Grenell’s nomination was sitting before the Senate.
The CIA station chief in Berlin typically reports to the American ambassador to Germany — but for that to happen, there has to actually be an American ambassador to Germany. As details of the reported operation surface months after the fact, America still has no ambassador in Germany, whose citizens are no fans of American clandestine operations in their country.
Additionally, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing challenges to her leadership within her Christian Democratic Union party after making steep concessions with a center-left party in order to form a governing coalition. Even as Merkel’s leadership looks shaky, America’s top diplomatic post in Germany remains empty.

Top Senate Democrat Has Been Exposed Texting Russian Oligarch!
Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) has been exposed texting a Russian oligarch to set up a meeting to obtain false information on President Trump.
According to a report Thursday, the top Democrat investigating the “Russia Narrative” was attempting to reach out to the lobbyist representing a Russian oligarch in an effort to secure a meeting with former MI6 agent Christopher Steele.
A FOX News report cited text messages it received from a Republican source on the Senate Intelligence Committee that Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) exchanged messages with lobbyist Adam Waldman early last year. It was clear from the messages that the ranking Democrat was working on his own, and was being careful to keep his actions secret.
Waldman, who has ties to both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and to President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was working for Oleg Deripraska. The Russian oligarch lost his U.S. visa over claims he was engaged in organized crime, which he denies, but was also reportedly in communications with Manafort, who promised access to the Trump administration.
Warner and Waldman’s communications were focused mainly on securing a meeting with Steele, author of the dossier on the president.
