That the totalitarian left has invaded the U.S. Congress should be as simple to see as black and white as the sore-loser Democrats have whipped out Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin’s playbook in the Trump era.
Like when the mass-murdering Russian tyrant was consolidating power and purging enemies with false charges, secret police, violent goons and most of all show trials, the Democrats continue to mimic the communist despot who seems to be an inspiration to the majority of them, especially in the House of Representatives.
Led by chief inquisitor Adam Schiff, the Dems have convened kangaroo court tribunals over allegations that President Trump and his associates colluded with the Kremlin to bend Hillary over and put the boots to her last November.
Despite the lack of evidence – which never bothered Stalin either – the calls for investigations continue and the latest one is over Trump’s pardon of aging patriot and former Maricopa County, AZ sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Never mind that the POTUS has the unlimited ability to grant pardons (see: Bill Clinton and Marc Rich) but the Democrats are fanatics who have no respect for the rule of law and even less for the U.S. Constitution.

According to The Hill “House Dems call for hearing on Trump’s Arpaio pardon”:
House Democrats are pushing for Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) to call an oversight hearing of President Trump’s controversial pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
In a letter signed by ranking member Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) and 16 other members, Democrats argued that “although the President has wide constitutional authority to issue pardons, there is also ample precedent for our Committee to review pardons as controversial as this one.”
Trump issued the pardon late last Friday as Hurricane Harvey moved toward the Texas Gulf Coast. Democrats slammed Trump for announcing the pardon as a then-Category 4 storm approached the U.S.
Arpaio was convicted of criminal contempt earlier this year for ignoring a judicial order that required him to end the practice of detaining racially profiled individuals for presumed immigration violations.
The former sheriff was set for sentencing on Oct. 5 and was facing a maximum penalty of six months in jail. Democrats and civil rights organizations slammed Trump’s pardon of the former law enforcement official, calling Arpaio’s policing policies racist.
“The pardon sends an unequivocal message that institutionalized racial profiling as practiced by Sheriff Arpaio is acceptable,” House Democrats wrote in their letter this week.
“The pardon is disrespectful to the rule of law in general and to the federal courts in particular; and the President issued the pardon in complete absence of any advisory role by the Department of Justice,” it added.

But of course, it would be the batty John Conyers behind this latest abuse of power.
For God’s sake, Conyers is 88 FREAKING YEARS OLD! And like the other useless septuagenarians and octogenarians who belong in nursing homes instead of in Congress – BOTH parties are guilty – he should have long ago been put out to pasture.
One BIG reason why things are so screwed up today – the lack of TERM LIMITS.
This would be a winning issue for Trump if he would just be able to get his mind wrapped around it.
Calling for a Constitutional amendment would be a massive hit with the public who are sick of these worthless bloodsuckers who are able to spend decades feeding on taxpayers like leeches.
Most of them seem to be Democrats too and like Conyers, he’s still mired in the 1960’s battle for civil rights even after the United States had a two-term black president.
