Maxine Waters: A Gift That Keeps Giving

From:,  by Robyn Dolgin,  on May 19, 2017

Congresswoman Maxine Waters failed to anticipate her “destroy Trump” campaign would have an unpleasant boomerang effect on her own political career.

She experienced an unwanted surprise this week when returning to her posh home in Hancock Park after making the media rounds in the so-called impeachment campaign against President Trump.

Protestors had gathered outside her LA mini-mansion waving placards that read: “Impeach Maxine Waters” and “Do Your Job,” referring to the congresswoman’s 35-year tenure representing the infamous suburb of Compton. “She’s not representing her constituents, especially the black constituents,” complained one of the protestors before the KABC media crew. “She thinks by putting down our president, we’re going to like her more,” complained another protestor. “Every time she talks, she makes me want to throw up.” That can’t be good for her re-election chances.

Not all was doom-and-gloom on the scene. There was even a mariachi band that allowed the gathering to protest in style.

Apparently, Waters is too distracted as the new media darling — dubbed “Auntie Maxine” by fawning reporters — to perform her job. Her long history of corruption and abysmal performance in office never seems to make its way into the conversation among her co-conspirators (aka reporters) in the mainstream media.

It is a perverse irony that President Trump works round-the-clock to make inroads to improve the lives of Americans in his few months in office, and Waters with a whopping 35 years on the job continues representing a district where the socioeconomic conditions grow progressively worse.

Perhaps that’s the reason one of the protestors suggested withholding the congresswoman’s salary by waving a sign that read: “No Justice No Paycheck.” Here’s what they are so mad about: Compton is now more than $40 million awash in debt; produces schools dubbed “dropout” factories, has lost accreditation of its community college; and widespread gang violence resulted in the 43rd district being listed as the most dangerous place for homicides in Los Angeles County, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

To be fair, Compton retains the distinction of being the birthplace to the only bulletproof drive-thru funeral home. (I’m sure the proprietor has his or her reasons.)

No wonder Waters cannot be expected to live in the district she represents. It’s too dangerous. She’s safely ensconced approximately 20 miles away, but everyone knows that a change in Southland zip codes can translate to mean living worlds apart.

Worlds apart – I guess so. Here is Maxine’s palatial mansion at 549 Lucerne in L.A. It is a 5 bedroom, 4 baths, 3,966 sq ft. A Mediterranean-style mansion that Zillow says is valued at $4,184,329.

As for her history of corruption, Waters will argue to the death — or at least wear you out — that the three-year congressional ethics committee investigating her diversion of bailout money to her husband’s bank, OneUnited, (in which he was a stockholder and board member) was made up of a racist cabal orchestrated by the Red State (given new meaning today). The congresswoman’s influence peddling in real estate finance also caught the attention of the IRS labeling the transactions as a “scam,” according to the agency’s 2006 report.

All things considered, President Trump could not ask for a better adversary than Waters. She talks a lot about connecting the dots between Putin and Trump through baseless allegations, misstatement of facts and fanning the media-induced smoke in hopes of igniting a fire. Her own words best make her case in which she deserves an additional moniker as the “Queen of Malapropisms.”

“The fact that he (President) is wrapping his arms around Putin,” she alleged at a recent press conference, “While Putin is continuing to advance into Korea.” The congresswoman knew something was off in her statement as she looked somewhat confused, but this did not stop her from repeating the Korea allegation. “Crimea,” whispered a concerned liberal standing behind her. Let’s be clear: Putin invaded the Crimea, and not North or South Korea.

Should we give Auntie Maxine a pass because both words contain the same number of syllables? Then she would earn the same pass for referring to the President’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, as “Mike Priebus.”

It appears her liberal friends are more forgiving of her mangled messages, but not so understanding of her corruption. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a liberal group supported by George Soros, drew up a list of “the most corrupt members of Congress,” and Auntie Maxine was among the Hall of Shamers.

These are supposed to be her liberal friends.

Throughout the congresswoman’s 13 terms in office, she has acquired a long history of shameful conduct and baseless allegations dating back to the 1990s: She accused the CIA of deliberately distributing “crack cocaine to young blacks” in the inner cities and paid a courtesy visit to the parents of the black youth who randomly selected a white person (pulled from his truck) to bash his head with a cement block in a LA race riot in 1992. The parents of the innocent truck driver, Reginald Denny, did not receive the same courtesy visit. These acts of violence were dubbed by Waters as “somewhat understandable” at the time. Therefore she said: “So I call it a rebellion.” She’s on to her next “resistance” movement.

Congresswoman Waters is the perfect face, now named as the “Auntie of the Resistance,” to best reflect the shameful character and perverse nature of the campaign to destroy the majority government now in power.

How can we categorize voters who keep returning this woman to congress? Dumbasses? Idiots? Ignoramuses? For 35 years, they’ve been voting this worthless, do-nothing, politician back into the House. Thirty-five years! And what has she accomplished for them? How has the district improved since she’s been in Washington?

Compton is now more than $40 million awash in debt; produces schools dubbed “dropout” factories, and has lost accreditation of its community college. Its widespread gang violence resulted in the 43rd district being listed as the most dangerous place for homicides in Los Angeles County. The violent crime rate is one of the highest in the nation, across communities of all sizes (both large and small). Violent offenses tracked included rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated assault, including assault with a deadly weapon. Her district’s violent crime rating, on a scale from 1 (low crime) to 100, is 91.  

It’s no wonder that she doesn’t reside in Compton, but in Hancock Park, a posh community 20 miles away.

And still, they keep voting for her; I’d love to ask them why.

Remember the old saying often attributed to Albert Einstein: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

Ok, that makes sense. I guess it makes Maxine Water’s constituents insane – I can buy that.

  1. I don’t care if the idiots in Compton want to elect an idiot like Maxine Waters, except that their idiot affects me too. While they’ve got the majorities Republicans should enact a law that says voting districts must be drawn so that they don’t have a majority of idiot voters.


    • That’s a problem that I proposed a solution for years ago. Yes, a representative or a senator is supposed to represent their district/state, BUT their votes affect the country as a whole, so it seems to be fairer to allow voters nationally to contribute to the vote for one of our congress members – just weight their district or state voters more heavily. That would give everyone a say on who gets elected to congress – two bodies that make laws for the entire country.


  2. “Auntie Maxine” is in charge of the 43rd district in CA with 24% black residents and 47% Hispanic residents. Call me racist, but with that large of a Hispanic and black population it’s a good guess that many of them are recipients of some sort of government assistance.

    Usually those people continue to vote democrat so long as the monthly checks keep coming in. If a Republican were to get voted in, they might have to find jobs and support themselves, so the mental giants will keep her in office forever, never having the smarts to realize she’s their worst enemy.


  3. I always thought that congressman need to reside in the district she are representing?
    But you know she probably keeps on giving handouts left and right from her 1.5 million dollar house


    • Nope, not a requirement that they live in the district, only that they inhabit the state. And where did you get her house value? I checked Zillow and they have it estimated to be worth $4,184,329.
