Diamond and Silk Versus Sheila Jackson Lee, Cue Head Smack

If the fate of the Nation lies with Congressional Hearings, we are bloody, freaking doomed. It was David versus Goliath. It was the Little Dipper versus the Big Dipper. It was the little people versus the Might of the Federal Government. It was Diamond and Silk versus the Judiciary Committee and it was a sad, pathetic little circus side show.

Diamond and Silk are two North Carolina sisters, Trump supporters and vloggers. The sisters real names are Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson. Mark Zuckerberg, head Face, has testified that he wanted to make Facebook a “safe space” for everyone. (Yeah, I know. That is not possible. But, you are not a Liberal. Don’t blame me.) Apparently, on April 5, 2018, Diamond and Silk were notified that Facebook does not consider their page “safe”. Zuckerweenie was asked about this in one of the other side show hearings and that led directly to Diamond and Silk versus Sheila Jackson Lee. (Please put something soft on your desk. I don’t want you to hurt yourself when your head smacks the desk while watching this video.)

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee is a nematode and I apologize to worms for that. She is right up there with Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi for least sentient Congressweenies. There is no way in the galaxy that I could explain how much I despise their existence, but I digress.

Anyhoo, the testimony of Diamond and Silk led to the following headlines:

Gizmodo: Blame Facebook for That Moronic Diamond and Silk Hearing.

The Huffington Post: Diamond And Silk Appear To Lie Under Oath About Trump Payments.

The Daily Caller: Diamond And Silk Appear To Lie During House Judiciary Committee Hearing.

Notice that weasel word in there: “appear.” From the Daily Caller article:

The perceived perjury occurred during an exchange with Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

The Texas Democrat repeatedly asked the popular pro-Trump social media personalities if they had ever been paid by the Trump campaign, to which each time they replied with some variation of “never.”

Jackson Lee asked again if the figure, “$1,274.94,” meant anything, to which the ladies again responded they had never been paid by the Trump campaign.

The Trump campaign’s official FEC filing shows that they did in fact pay the women for “Field Consulting” in November 2016.

Smack head again.

Here, we turn to Business Insider for a tiny, little bit of common sense:

“Actually, this was for because we was asked to join the ‘women for Trump’ tour back in 2016,” Richardson said,” and Mrs. Lara Trump asked that our airline tickets be refunded back to us because we paid for those tickets when we went from New York to Ohio.”

A representative for the FEC told Business Insider: “The information and data available through campaign finance reports on FEC.gov originate from the filing committee.”

In a statement, the Trump campaign’s treasurer Bradley Crate said, “The issue regarding Diamond and Silk is merely one of semantics, resulting from a reasonable misunderstanding of the Campaign’s reporting obligations.”

Diamond and Silk did not see getting reimbursed as getting paid. Neither do I. Kant’s Hypothetical Imperative, kind of. If there is no positive cash flow on my balance sheet, I did not get paid. I got reimbursed for expenses.

Also, from the same Business Insider article:

“Rather than diamonds, you’re seeking money from Facebook,” Johnson told Hardaway.

“This is a stupid and ridiculous hearing,” said Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu.

During the hearing, Democrats questioned Richardson and Hardaway about their practices and theories, and the two would often respond by shouting and interrupting.

At multiple points, Democrats and Republicans on the committee could be seen laughing, rolling their eyes, and shaking their heads in disbelief.

The Congressweenies rolled their eyes and laughed. Give me a break. Diamond and Silk did not respect the sanctity of the House Judiciary Committee because they saw it for what it was. It was one more chance for those nasty, gassy windbags to preen and posture and play gotcha. It’s not like Sheila Jackson Lee was following “Robert’s Rules of Order” anyways.

Diamond and Silk may not be everybody’s cup of tea. The more high brow, snooty booty you are, the more you will find them beneath you. Well, I am proud of them for not putting up with the side show clowns attempts to get them.

    One of the few things I consider as negative as the non-intelligent Sheila Jackson Lee is the hundreds of thousands of voter that wasted their franchise electing this cretin.

    • Toni Williams says:

      Amen.

    • GWB says:

      And those voters are the only way we’ll really get our country back. We can’t have a constitutional republic if the people don’t strive to zealously guard their (actual, Creator-endowed) rights and keep themselves mentally strong and morally straight.

  • GrimmCreeper says:

    Now let’s do all the people and organizations who’ve paid Lee, Lieu, Waters, Pelosi, Schiff and every other leftist hypocrite.

    Except that’s not how the law sees it – either in finance issues, or in issues of “influence”. Being reimbursed is being paid in every sense that matters.

    I’m surprised you didn’t mention any of the Johnson stuff. You know, he of “Guam will tip over!” fame? He had the gall to say that the sisters weren’t hurt by YouTube’s and FarceBook’s censorship*, because they had other ways of selling their t-shirts. He also said the hearing probably helped their bottom line so they shouldn’t complain.

    Oh, and you really need to add Johnson to your list of dumber-than-a-box-of-rocks congresscritters.

    Diamond & Silk are not my cup of tea. They turn me off. BUT, I’m glad they do what they do, and I don’t want them silenced.

    (* censorship in the broader meaning, not the pure 1st Amendment concept pertaining to gov’t restrictions.)

      I agree if you pay money to fly to an event that they invite you and then they give you a payment to reimburse your flight cost that is a refund. No positive money flow that is not a fiduciary Employment payment.

    Jackson is to stupid to realize that dates are sequential.
