February 11, 2017 PRIME MINISTER ABE: (As interpreted.) North Korea's
most recent missile launch is absolutely intolerable. North Korea must fully
comply with the relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions. During the
summit meeting that I had with President Trump, he assured me that the United
States will always with Japan 100 percent. And to demonstrate his
determination, as well as commitment, he is now here with me at this joint press
conference. President Trump and I myself completely share the view that we
are going to promote further collaboration between the two nations and also we
are going to further reinforce our alliance. That is all from myself.PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much, Mr. Prime Minister. I just want
everybody to understand and fully know that the United States of America stands
behind Japan, its great ally, 100 percent. Thank you.
I am also not from Utah therefore, Mr. Chaffetz is not my representative. I do
want the House Oversight Committee to do it's job. I called Mr. Chaffetz
office but they will not talk to me because I'm not in his district.
Because the work of this committee affects the entire nation I highly recommend
spending a minute to look up the members of the committee and if they are in
your district giving them a call to see if the members can persuade Chaffetz to
do his job.
Good start, l hope he adds Russia, product endorsement, product denouncement,
lying to the public, failure to investigate voter fraud claims, etc... to his
list of investigations.
What about Hillary's emails and Benghazi? All that seems like
small stuff now!Jason, you are in over your head and you have no
place to run.
If I were to go to work and perform like Chaffetz I would soon be out of
work.Who investigates him? or does he like his job that is above
reproach?Instead of doing his job for real now he has to figure a
way to posture his lack of real substantive interest into something that
resembles work.Jason your job is not house dressing, people depend
Is it just me or does it appear that Chaffetz would rather gargle with Drano
than do anything to upset Czar Trump.
I'm sorry it is taking the happenings as discussed in the article to get Mr
Chaffetz moving. Government cannot be run like a business. There has to be
questions and oversight. It is about time action is happening. Do your job, Mr
Chaffetz. Investigate the goings on in the whitehouse like you did the dems.
I only wish he had as much zeal as he did with Hillary's emails, but this
is a good start. Next up: Russian ties!
Way to stay in the spotlight Jason Chaffetz...It is what you do best.
Ask which Trump agents contacted Russian agents prior to election and when money
was exchanged. The Mara Lago security breach was just a clown show.
To me the political apathy of the voters in Utah is appalling.Scandals of the majority party are a non issue to many.It is no
wonder to me that with out microphones or an orderly process to speak people
chanted "Do Your Job!" at the last town hall meeting.Personal feeling we will now just have Republican "Infomercials"
(Telephone Town Halls) that will pass for town hall meetings that we can listen
to rather than see our representatives in person.Just exactly how
many people actually listen into those telephone town hall meetings?
Kelly Ann Conway should be disciplined. If she was just a ditzy blonde you could
understand her doing a stupid thing pushing Ivanke's business interests
from the White House. But, she has a law degree so she was certainly taught
something about ethics and ethical behavior. Follow the money. That
is always enlightening starting with Trumps tax returns and looking at all his
potential conflicts of interest. We are a country. Not a business you can just
do a bankruptcy on when it all goes south or you want to make a buck and run.
This is about the safety and security of our country and having an accountable
government. We have right to ask for that. We pay the tab for all of them.
Hey, at least it's a start.
@Just want to know.....Your argument sounds a lot like that of
someone pulled over on the side of the highway, pleading to the cop that
everyone else is speeding.Your guy ran on a promise of cleaning out
Washington, draining the swamp, and making America great again. Many of us
"liberal trolls" were skeptical, but your guy won. Now the swamp seems
to be deeper and deeper. If there's criminal activity, it
should be prosecuted. No matter what. And if politicians spend a lot of time
strongly implying such activity, but never providing enough evidence to justify
charges, then chances are good they're showboating windbags.We
can at least agree that Mr. Chaffetz--and the oversight committee that he
chairs--need to do the job they were sent to Washington to do: investigate any
appearance of malfeasance, on behalf of the American people.
Wow this is it? Com'n Chef if your going to deploy diversionary tactics
they are going to have to be a little more earnest than this. A pitiful effort
that highlights you will not take on the tough tasks that are at hand. The pubic
is not that as ignorant as you thing Mr. Chaffetz.
But...but...but... Hilary!!I'll see your email server and raise
you a National Security Briefing about a current international situation on a
patio at a golf course and a National Security Advisor involved in illegal acts
with Foreign leaders and senior White House staff currently using private
servers and...Never mind. Investigate Ms. Clinton again. 15th time
is the charm.
Oh boy, just got through reading the Comments to this article. The Democrat
trolls are out today, aren't they? It's amazing how enlightened you
are the past four weeks, and were so blinded the whole eight years before as to
any actions/no action that President Obama had. It is so very interesting!
Watching Chaffetz get on board here is like watching a child learn to ride a
bike.Let's encourage him.Good job Jason, just keep
peddling. Keep your eyes on the path. You can do it.
This White House is in flames. How incompetent and compromised do we look in the
eyes of the world? This administration is so partisan, reckless, and arrogant.
Chaffetz will contort himself into any number of pretzel-like positions before
he'll roll up his sleeves and investigate boss master Trump. This is very reminiscent of the first few days after the Watergate break-in.
That was a "third rate burglary" remember?
There is much more to investigate than Mar-a-Lago. Fox 13 News Utah and CNN both
just reported that the president knew for weeks about Flynn. CNN reported that
Trump was informed on January 26th, so he has known about it for a long time.
Even more astounding, more Republicans (!) are comin on board asking for an
investigation, including Mitch McConnell. McConnell is a shrewd politician. So,
Mr. Chaffetz, get busy!!!
I am not from Utah therefore, Mr. Chaffetz is not my representative. However,
the way he performs as Chairman of the House Oversight Committee has an impact
in the whole nation. Mr. Chaffetz, please stop your childish
behavior and start working and facing your responsibilities as a grown up. The
cold War was real and Putin is a product of the KGB. It is sad that
we cannot expect from President Trump to give what he doesn't have. But you
Mr. Chaffetz have no excuse. You do know better. At least, you should.
Mr. Chaffetz. Please remember to ask about Mr Flynn.
I'm glad to hear that he is willing to do something about anything at this
point. Why aren't the other members of the committee speaking out about
what is happening? Expediency for himself and party by Chaffetz is winning the
day, rather than loyalty to country.
Well, it's a start, but a weak one. How about looking into the Russians, or
the white house shopping channel with Kellyanne?
Did his public meeting last week wake him up to the vast number of his
constituents, and paid infiltrators, that are watching and wanting him to do
Really? With Trump & company's relationship & business dealings
with Russia, Chaffetz wants to ask about security at his hotel? That's like
asking about the 911 terrorists choice of airline meals instead of their
Chaffetz is asking questions about that?!The Russians put Trump into
office, and Chaffetz thinks Mara-a-lago is more important?The
clandestine activity of Trump's lackeys centers around our nation's
greatest geopolitical foe and Putin. And Chaffetz thinks Mara-a-lago is more
important?The Russians altered our electoral process for the purpose
of weakening our nation, and Chaffetz thinks Mara-a-lago is more important?It makes one wonder, doesn't it?What kind of a deal did
Trump and the Russians cut with Jason Chaffetz?
Good start, Chaffetz. Now get started REALLY doing your job. Go after 45's
tax returns, information on his business dealings, investigation concerning
Flynn's contact with the Russians, investigation concerning the Russian
intrusion/hack of the election, etc. The ethics issues with 45 are much, much
larger than the Mar-a-Lago security protocol. Do your job.
There are a lot more questions Chaffetz needs to start asking.
And I'm sure he'll pursue each of these investigations with as much
vigor as he put into the never-ending hearings on Hillary Clinton's
emails.So long as the cameras are rolling, at least.
