Watch: Powerful Viral Video Highlights How Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal ‘Got It Right’ and ‘Destroyed’ Bill Barr



Attorney General Bill Barr was unable to stand up to the scrutiny of Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee who questioned him for hours on Tuesday.

One prominent Democrat, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), was exceptionally strong in her line of questioning, as this powerful viral video from Really American PAC shows.

Jayapal, who is also the Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, dissects the “real discrepancy” in how Barr reacts as Attorney General.

“When white men with swastikas storm a government building with guns, there is no need for the president to ‘activate’ you because they’re getting the president’s personal agenda done,” she tells Barr.

But when largely peaceful grassroots demonstrators protest police brutality, and systemic racism and injustice, she tells Barr, “you forcibly remove them with armed federal officers and pepper bombs.”


The video has been viewed 2 million times since midnight.

Really American is responsible for several videos highlighting President Donald Trump’s lies and fascism.

Biden Epically Destroys ‘Insecure Bully’ Trump After President Says He ‘Hurt God’: ‘My Faith Teaches Me to Love My Neighbor’



Joe Biden is hitting back – epically and eloquently – after President Donald Trump attacked the former vice president Thursday.

In what some mocked as a “deranged” rant from an Ohio tarmac Trump told supporters Biden has “No religion. No anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He’s against God.”

Thursday night the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee responded, with 301 words focused on his faith.

Biden is a devout and practicing Catholic. Trump has been attacking Biden’s faith all week. On Wednesday the president’s re-election campaign released an attack ad essentially mocking Biden praying. Some slammed the president for “anti-religious bigotry.”

In a post on Medium, Biden responded to Trump’s latest assault by writing, in part, “My faith teaches me to love my neighbor as I would myself, while President Trump only seeks to divide us.”

“My faith teaches me to care for the least among us, while President Trump seems to only be concerned about his gilded friends,” Biden continued. “My faith teaches me to welcome the stranger, while President Trump tears families apart. My faith teaches me to walk humbly, while President Trump teargassed peaceful protestors so he could walk over to a church for a photo op.”

Biden also called his Catholic faith, “the bedrock foundation of my life,” that “provided me comfort in moments of loss and tragedy,” and has “kept me grounded and humbled in times of triumph and joy.”

He also noted, “like the words of so many other insecure bullies, President Trump’s comments reveal more about him than they do about anyone else.”

‘Show Us the Flynn Tapes or Buzz Off’: Dem Rep. Swalwell Destroys Trump’s Former DNI in Epic Twitter ‘Bloodbath’



Right now there is an online Twitter battle between California’s Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell and President Donald Trump’s former acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Richard Grenell.  Swalwell is winning, handily.

It all started last week when Rep. Swalwell said he didn’t trust Grenell, who was stepping down both as Trump’s Ambassador to Germany and as his acting DNI, after the Senate confirmed now-former Congressman John Ratcliffe. (Ratcliffe is legally ineligible to hold that position, but Senate Republicans confirmed him anyway.)

Grenell fought back:

And Swalwell slammed him for not doing his job, and taunted him for not releasing trump’s first National Security Advisor Mike Flynn’s transcripts/calls with Russian agents.

Grenell insisted the transcripts/calls would be released.

Swalwell waited. Grenell is no longer DNI (although he is joining the Trump re-election campaign.) Swalwell slammed Grenell. “Tick tock.”

And Swalwell hit back again, accusing Grenell of enabling the guy who spread “Russian propaganda” and “asked Russia to hack his opponent,” Donald Trump:

And then Swalwell schooled Grenell on actual facts, like Democrats were in the minority during the Russia investigations, and hit him with “show us the Flynn tapes or buzz off.”

More facts from Swalwell, facts the right likes to forget:

And this:

And more facts:

The battle is still going on.

Here’s what some are saying now that “Swalwell” is the top trending topic on Twitter right now:

‘Stay Out’: Sanders Eviscerates ‘Thug’ Putin After Russia Exposed for Trying to Help His Presidential Campaign



U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, the current presidential frontrunner for the Democrats, had decidedly harsh words for President Vladimir Putin after the Washington Post reported he had been briefed by federal officials that Russia is working to get him elected.

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders told The Washington Post in a statement. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

“Unlike Donald Trump, I do not consider Vladimir Putin a good friend. He is an autocratic thug,” Sanders also said. “I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president. My message to Putin is clear: stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

Many are heralding the Independent Senator from Vermont who, unlike President Donald Trump whose campaign was assisted by Russia in 2016 and is also now being aided, Sanders emphatically told Putin to stop.
