Remember, Michael Avenatti, you wanted this

Remember Michael Avenatti you wanted this

One would be hard pressed to find someone who desperately wants media attention more than attorney Michael Avenatti. He has taken on two high-profile clients this year and has turned their stories into platforms for him to promote his own stardom. He claims to want to be President. Is that really the case?

Maybe it is. Maybe he hates President Trump so badly that he wants to do everything he can to push him out of office in 2020. Maybe he thinks he’s the most qualified person among Democrats to make that happen. After all, he’s a white male, and according to a profile he did for TIME Magazine, it’ll take a white male to beat Trump.

Michael Avenatti’s Past Won’t Stop Him From Running in 2020

http://time.com/5434317/michael-avenatti/A run for President would thrust Avenatti into the middle of the party’s identity crisis. The Democrats have not been this powerless since the 1920s, and their members have responded by nominating a historic number of women and people of color for office. But when it comes to the party’s presidential nominee in 2020, Avenatti thinks in different terms. “I think it better be a white male,” he says. He hastens to add that he wishes it weren’t so, but it’s undeniable that people listen to white men more than they do others; it’s why he’s been successful representing Daniels and immigrant mothers, he says. “When you have a white male making the arguments, they carry more weight,” he says. “Should they carry more weight? Absolutely not. But do they? Yes.”

Obviously, many Democrats are cringing and even criticizing Avenatti for the statement, which he has denied saying. Unfortunately for him, his persona on television makes it very believable that he would not only say those words, but that he would believe them.

This wasn’t the first controversy surrounding Avenatti this week. A past associate wants money and a judge is giving it to him.

Judge enters $4.85 million judgment against Michael Avenatti

https://abc7.com/judge-enters-$485-million-judgment-against-michael-avenatti/4537429/A California judge ruled on Monday that Michael Avenatti, the outspoken attorney for adult-film star Stormy Daniels, is in breach of a personal obligation to pay a $4.85 million debt.

The ruling, by California Superior Court Judge Dennis Landin, is just the latest development in a long-running dispute between Avenatti and Jason Frank, an attorney who once did legal work for Avenatti’s law firm, who contends that Avenatti and his law firm have repeatedly reneged on a multi-million-dollar settlement agreement approved by a bankruptcy court earlier this year.

Things are looking pretty bad for Avenatti this week and there’s still a full day left. But wait, there’s more. On top of a couple of other investigations involving Avenatti, Senator Chuck Grassley says the Department of Justice needs to go after him as well.

Grassley sends criminal referral for attorney Michael Avenatti and Kavanaugh accuser

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/grassley-sends-criminal-referral-for-kavanaugh-accuser-julie-swetnick-and-attorney-michael-avenattiSenate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said Thursday he has referred attorney Michael Avenatti and client Julie Swetnick — who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct — for criminal investigation regarding a potential “conspiracy” to provide false statements to Congress and obstruct its investigation.

Avenatti, who also is a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and works as the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, represented Swetnick, who accused Kavanaugh during confirmation proceedings of being involved in or present at “gang” and “train” rapes at high school parties in the 1980s. He denied it.

He wanted all the attention. This week, he’s getting it.

We saw this coming months ago when Avenatti started to get more press than his client, Stormy Daniels. She is a porn star who accused the President of the United States of a crime, yet somehow her lawyer made more of a splash than she did in the media. He was appearing on any show that would have him on, usually talking more about how bad the President was than his client or her case. He was basking in the spotlight and refused to let it shine on anything else.

When someone wants as much attention as Michael Avenatti, they better make sure their actions and words stand up to scrutiny. The closer we look at Avenatti, the more we learn he was never worth any of the attention he’s been given.

Avenatti’s week reminds me of a scene from Jack Reacher.

2020 hopefuls lurching leftward to appeal to radical progressive base

2020 hopefuls lurching leftward to appeal to radical progressive base

The great primary evolution is already starting. We saw it in 2016 as every Republican candidate tried to “evolve” their views to cater to the conservative base. No evolution was more striking than candidate Trump’s, who went from supporting gun bans and partial birth abortion as a younger man to being one of the most conservative candidates during the primaries.

We’re seeing it now with the Democratic candidates and potential candidates as they try to plant their ideological flags as far to the left as possible. Former Trump pollster John Mclaughlin gave his opinion on the leftward lurch of the field, focusing on Elizabeth Warren, Cory “Spartacus” Booker, and Kamala Harris. Each has attempted to paint themselves as the radical progressive the primary-voting base desires. All of them were much more moderate in the past. Warren was even a Republican in the 1990s.

The thing that makes this trend most disturbing is that the “far left” of the past is nothing compared to the radical progressivism of today’s Democratic base. By the time the primaries really heat up, most if not all will be full-blown socialists.

Pirro: Democrats putting politics over people

Pirro Democrats putting politics over people

Following President Trump’s speech to America with his compromise offer to Democrats to secure the border and end the government shutdown, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was in rare form as she went after Democrats for instantly rejecting the proposal. Her biggest target was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The President has requested funds in order to build a small portion of the border wall, render humanitarian assistance, improve drug detection technology, and hire 2,750 additional border patrol agents and 75 immigration judge teams. In exchange, he’s offering three years of extended protection for DACA recipients and those with Temporary Protected Status.

Here was her response:

My Take

There are many conservatives who are against the proposal. Under normal circumstances, I would be as well. But we’re approaching a full month of the government shutdown. Enough is enough.

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall?

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall

The ball is back in the Democrats’ court. Some may say it’s been there the whole time. I do. Unfortunately, most Americans have bought into the leftist media narrative that the President is forcing the government shutdown to continue by not negotiating despite clear evidence to the contrary.

Nevertheless, the President has decided to make his compromise public. He took to national television to offer three years worth of protection to Dreamers.

Trump’s immigration offer brings polarized reactions from Dems and GOP

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trumps-immigration-offer-brings-polarized-reactions-from-dems-and-gopPresident Trump’s immigration compromise package to end the partial government shutdown drew sharp reactions from Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike.

In a televised White House address Saturday, Trump offered Democrats a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion to fund a barrier along the southern border with Mexico.

The Democrats’ responses were predictable. They don’t want any deal that includes the border wall because they realize if they can keep the wall from going forward, it harms the President’s chances for reelection in 2020.

Period.

This has never been about helping immigrants. Democrats are willing to harm both Dreamers and 800,000 Americans hurt by the shutdown in order to make the President look bad for 2020. They’re a disgrace to our nation’s government. Build the wall.
