  • My Worst-Case Impeachment Scenario

    Here is my worst-case impeachment scenario. A. Adam Schiff's kangaroo inquiry secretly drafts articles of impeachment. Their validity matters not one whit. B. The articles of impeachment (valid or bogus, it doesn't matter) go to the house floor. It passes easily, with every Democrat and some GOP congressmen voting to send it to the senate for an impeachment trial. C. Mitch McConnell immediately moves for a full Senate trial. He has already said he would do this, and I think I know why: his family is just as corrupt as the Biden family, and he wants Trump's swamp-draining to end...
  • Democrats blamed for mounting disrespect of NYPD; they directly blame DeBlasio

    The latest push by the Left-wing Communists in the Garbage Party to destabilize our cities and our country is to attack law enforcement on the local level. That means electing “progressives” to the position of mayor and prosecuting attorney while attempting to get similar people hired on as police chiefs. The effort is already paying dividends. Big cities from coast-to-coast are experiencing record disrespect for the law as well as the law enforcers — the men and women who occupy the thin blue line between civil society and total chaos.

The earthquake comes after an overnight of shaking set off by two quakes Monday night...

    October 2, 2019 The Honorable Eliot L. Engel, Chairman Committee on Foreign Affairs House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515 Dear Mr. Chairman: I am writing to strongly object to the abdication of the Foreign Affairs Committee's oversight jurisdiction to the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. It will damage the credibility of our committee and minimize our Members' expertise in the exercise of that jurisdiction. On September 27, 2019, you and two other chairmen sent a letter to the Secretary of State claiming to "schedule" without subpoena the depositions of five State Department officials to "be conducted jointly by the Committee...
  • Chaos on Capitol Hill: Judiciary Hearing with Corey Lewandowski Devolves into Bedlam

    Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski frustrated House Judiciary Committee Democrats during a contentious hearing on Tuesday they had hoped would fuel support for President Trump’s impeachment but instead devolved into chaos. Democrats repeatedly tried and failed to get Lewandowski, a close ally of the president, to talk about his conversations with the president. The White House has asserted those conversations should remain private due to executive privilege, and Lewandowski stayed within those limits.

    TORIES are set to rip up years of convention and depose Speaker Bercow at the next election - after his furious blast at Michael Gove last night. The Conservatives are getting ready to break with long-standing rules and line up a Brexiteer to take on the Commons Speaker in his Buckingham constituency, according to The Telegraph. At the moment it's a tradition that no other major party runs any candidate against the Speaker, giving them a clear shot at winning. In 2010 only Nigel Farage, then Ukip leader, and several independent candidates ran against him. This means there's not a...
  • Joker director says the Joaquin Phoenix movie 'doesn't follow anything' from the comics

    The upcoming Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix will be a wholly original take on the iconic Gotham villain. “We didn’t follow anything from the comic books, which people are gonna be mad about,” writer-director Todd Phillips told Empire. “We just wrote our own version of where a guy like Joker might come from. That’s what was interesting to me. We’re not even doing Joker, but the story of becoming Joker. It’s about this man.” His comments seem to dash fan speculation that the movie might follow portions of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s legendary The Killing Joke, the comic that...

    ...frustrated by all the things that had to be done to make another run after fixing an error, she devised a way to bypass the computer’s clunky debugging process. To Lorenz’s delight, Hamilton would take the paper tape that fed the machine, roll it out the length of the hallway, and edit the binary code with a sharp pencil. “I’d poke holes for ones, and I’d cover up with Scotch tape the others,” she said. “He just got a kick out of it.” Many accounts, including the one in Gleick’s book, date the discovery of this butterfly effect to 1961,...

    We’re watching Democratic politicians imploding while others cannibalize each other. There’s a war in the party. “The Justice Democrats see Ocasio-Cortez as just the opening act in an astonishingly ambitious plan to do nothing less than re-imagine liberal politics in America—and do it by whatever means necessary. "If that requires knocking out well-known elected officials and replacing them with more radical newcomers, so be it. And if it ends up ripping apart the Democratic Party in the process—well, that might be the idea." I have no doubt whatsoever that Trump’s Judas goats helped the Justice Democrats every step of the...

    Have you all noticed that Democrats are going down lately? Almost like someone is orchestrating it in a targeted fashion? 1. Not only do the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in line in Virginia all fall into jeopardy at once, but look at the incidence: Northam's picture is found, then a 2017 report about Fairfax is quickly dropped, then AG Herring admits to wearing blackface, a complete self-kill as if he knows the evidence will come out at any time. 2. Schiff's conversation with Glenn Simpson is revealed yesterday, which completely shows not just bias, but coordination. Furthermore, this is probably...

    The biggest challenge we have is to remain resolute in our support for the President and to continue to press him and his administration to complete their agenda The government shutdown is finishing its second week and the new Congress gets sworn in today. I can hardly wait. As the establishment elements of both parties continue to hand-wring over the current President, I really don’t wonder what is going to happen when the Democrats take control of the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi becomes—again— the Speaker of the House. I fear I know just how far her caucus will...

    The Oval Office is in chaos. Donald Trump is mercurial, scatter-brained, given to changing his opinion every few minutes. Talks all the time. Doesn’t listen. Is opinionated. Often wrong. He is interested only in today, not tomorrow. He lacks caution. It all adds up to a president who clearly is mentally deficient – insane even.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell showered his wife, Elaine Chao, with praise Thursday night, over her confrontation with protesters who wanted the Kentucky Republican to answer for immigrant children being separated from their parents at the U.S. southern border. Chao, who serves as transportation secretary, told the demonstrators to “leave my husband alone” as the couple departed an event at Georgetown University on Wednesday evening. McConnell explained he told his wife to hop into the waiting car, but Chao leapt into action....

    No wonder the Russian meddlers are laughing – the Dems are wittingly colluding in sowing discord through sleazy identity politics and by fostering extreme multiculturalism. Lacking substantive policy ideas, their main hope for electoral success is to divide and conquer. Russia is a major geopolitical adversary, which makes the Democrats the enemy within. The thread that binds our great tapestry of cultures was woven by our founding fathers "in order to form a more perfect union." Their system of checks and balances ensures that rationality and compromise establish a balance between our contradictory instincts of cooperation and competition. Their emphasis...

    WASHINGTON — Senator Rand Paul was right — Republicans can be hypocrites when it comes to spending. Mr. Paul, the architect of Friday’s one-man shutdown, called out his own party for renewed profligacy after years of penny-pinching during the Obama administration, accusing Republicans of forming “an unholy alliance and spending free-for-all with Democrats at the expense of the American people and our party’s supposed principles. ” But Mr. Paul, a Kentucky Republican, had his own obvious inconsistencies. He was bemoaning a surge in deficit spending after enthusiastically voting in December for a deficit-ballooning $1.5 trillion tax cut. He then forced...

    The fissure was first spotted in October on Rattlesnake Ridge in south central Washington State, overlooking Interstate 82 and the Yakima River. Since then, a 20-acre chunk of mountainside — roughly four million cubic yards of rock, enough to fill 25 football stadiums to the top of the bleachers, eight stories up — has been sliding downhill. Geologists can measure its current speed — about two and a half inches a day — but they cannot say for certain when, or if, it might accelerate into a catastrophe. And they are powerless to stop it. “The mountain is moving, and...

Instead, more than 100 corporate leaders are demanding immediate and permanent amnesty for millions of so-called “Dreamers.” Just days after President Donald Trump hosted Democratic and Republican lawmakers at the White House to discuss legislation that would authorize funding for a border...

    There are so many conflicting reports surrounding the Russia Collusion Investigation, Fake Trump Dossier, DNC Corruption, and most importantly these issues bleed into the Uranium One Scandal. I have done a few reports as of late, and honestly I am beginning to realize all of these issues have one thing in common: Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He is ether investigating or involved in all of the above. In my opinion Robert Mueller should have never been appointed as Special Counsel. This is the legal defining reason to fire a special counsel: https://lawfareblog.com/could-trump-remove-special-counsel-robert-mueller-lessons-watergate QUOTE Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert...
