Sun, 23 Jul 2017 05:03:38 GMT

Sitting at Donald Trump's right-hand side on Wednesday, Sen. Dean Heller looked about as comfortable as a man watching his teenage daughter marry Gary Busey. How Heller allowed himself to get planted next to Trump was a head-scratcher, given that Trump's obvious purpose in calling senators together was to trash those who opposed the Senate's latest health care bill - a group that included Heller - and put pressure on them to vote for a repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

The political prosecution of Cliven Bundy, his sons and tens of other defendants is an outrage begun by President Barack Obama and his Justice Department, then run by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, essentially because Cliven used the word "Negro" in commenting that he and his family could appreciate how African-Americans were mistreated by the federal government, given how this same federal government, under Obama and Lynch, with the aid of former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, had attempted to enslave them, too. As just one example of how Obama took offense and then threatened Cliven, just watch the video below.
