    Former Vice President Joe Biden threatened Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for launching an investigation into his activities with Ukraine while in the Obama White House, stating the Republican will “regret” the move his “whole life.” Snip~ "Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he’s going to regret his whole life,” Biden told CNN host Don Lemon in a Friday interview in South Carolina. “I say Lindsey, I just — I’m just embarrassed by what you’re doing, for you. I mean, my Lord.”
  • Trump: Bring On The Senate Trial!

    Briar patch or pent-up frustration over being sidelined? In an interview with Fox & Friends earlier today, Donald Trump told the panel that he welcomed a Senate trial — if Democrats dare to impeach him. Trump says he would like nothing better than to turn the tables on “shifty Schiff” and call all the witnesses the House Intelligence chair blocked when requested by Republicans (via Colby Hall at Mediaite): President Trump just said this on @foxandfriends in a phone interview this morning:"I want a trial."The hosts tried to ask him a follow-up question about that, but he didn't stop...

    """So much for the #Resistance! While all eyes were on impeachment hearing, House re-authorized PATRIOT Act""" House Democrats have slipped an unqualified renewal of the draconian PATRIOT Act into an emergency funding bill – voting near-unanimously for sweeping surveillance carte blanche that was the basis for the notorious NSA program. A three-month reauthorization of the notorious PATRIOT Act was shoehorned into a last-minute continuing resolution (CR) funding the US government, bundling measures needed to avert yet another government shutdown with a continuation of the wildly-intrusive surveillance powers passed after the 9/11 terror attacks. Democrats voted almost unanimously for it, granting...

    The Washington Times ^ | 11/21/2019 | S. A. Miller
    A larger share of American voters now oppose the impeachment effort against President Trump, revealed a new poll released Thursday. An Emerson College national survey found 45% of voters oppose impeachment, compared to 43% that support it. That’s a reversal of public opinion from the same poll in October before House Democrats held public hearings to showcase their impeachment case against Mr. Trump. In October, 48% supported impeachment and 44% opposed it. “The biggest swing is among Independents, who oppose impeachment now 49% to 34%, which is a reversal from October where they supported impeachment 48% to 39%,” said the...

    WASHINGTON — A group of Republican senators and senior White House officials met privately Thursday to map out a strategy for a potential impeachment trial of President Trump, including proceedings in the Senate that could be limited to about two weeks, according to multiple officials familiar with the talks. Senators Mike Lee, Ron Johnson, John Neely Kennedy, Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, and Tom Cotton met with White House counsel Pat Cipollone, acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, senior adviser Jared Kushner, and counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, according to the officials, some of whom requested anonymity to discuss a...

    President Trump firmly slapped down the insubordinate Navy Thursday after the service announced it was seeking to punish Naval Special Operations Chief Eddie Gallagher by kicking him out of the SEALs. Snip~~ Trump ordered the Navy, via Twitter, to not take Gallagher’s SEAL Trident Pin away from him, “The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin. This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!”

    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently held its 25th Annual Gala in Washington, D.C, in which CAIR's executive director announced a goal of pushing more Islamists into Congress. As the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports, CAIR's executive director Nihad Awad shares the "formula" he believes will secure Islamists greater political power: "A strong CAIR equals a strong community. A strong community will produce a strong and confident and successful Muslim ...

    Former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was rightly slammed by Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, a U.S. Foreign Service employee working in Benghazi, Libya, for daring to compare the dangers of a Trump tweet to the terrorist attack that killed her son Sean, Ambassador Chris Stevens, former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, and information officer Glen Doherty.
  • Waking Up

    “Washington doesn’t represent the American people anymore, because the bureaucrats and elected officials in Washington pursue their own self-serving agendas rather than doing what is objectively right for the country…Congress [has] only one problem that they’re serious about solving — and that’s getting reelected.” Those are strong words from Congressman Ken Buck. In his book Drain the Swamp, he gives an insider’s look into the rampant corruption in Congress. From outright ignoring the Constitution, to dead laws that never die, passing laws through intimidation, to purposefully creating problems so they can cash in. It’s troubling how easily people are distracted...

    A rather lengthy speech by U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr to the Federalist Society is getting some increased attention today for the specific focus on how the executive branch has been weakened over the past several decades. More specifically, AG Barr discusses how, in the Trump-era, the resistance movement has abdicated their legislative power and responsibility in favor of a politically motivated intent to harm the constitutional executive power.

    Equipment World's Better Roads ^ | November 11, 2019 | Don McLoud
    With few exceptions, states are losing the battle with aging bridges in need of repair or replacement. Even states with low percentages of bridges rated poor are finding it difficult to keep up with bridge and road systems that in many cases are 50 years old or older. Utah, which ranks fourth for the lowest percentage of poor bridges, programs a bridge for repair or replacement in the year after it drops to a poor rating, completing the project within four or five years. The Utah Department of Transportation notes, though, that the number of bridges falling from good to...

    Thanks to disgraced FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who told us in a text message that “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing,” we know that President Obama was kept fully informed about the deep-state coup against President Trump. Liar and leaker James Clapper has thrown Obama under the bus by saying the plotters would not have proceeded without President Obama’s approval. In a CNN interview deep-state conspirator and perjurer James Clapper gave with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, he points his finger directly at Obama as leader of the coup against Donald Trump:

    Colleen McNicholas, an abortionist who ends the lives of babies at the Reproductive Health Services Planned Parenthood abortion center in St. Louis, told members of Congress during a hearing on abortion yesterday that killing babies in abortion is “moral.” “Abortion is moral,” McNicholas claimed. “It is important. It is healthcare. And I support people being the experts in their own lives and making decisions for themselves.” Her comments drew a stern and immediate rebuke from Allie Beth Stuckey, a conservative writer and speaker who was also on the Congressional panel as a witness. “In what other situation, besides when a...

    Despite the hysterical headlines in the mainstream media, there was no bombshell on the first day of public testimony in the House impeachment inquiry. It was actually very boring and tedious.But for those who had the patience to sit through it on Wednesday, the testimony of veteran State Department officials William Taylor and George Kent did help clarify what this impeachment inquiry is all about: a disagreement between President Trump and a coterie of career State Department bureaucrats about what U.S. policy should be in Ukraine.To put it more bluntly, the DemocratsÂ’ impeachment inquiry is about whether the president...

The full House is expected to vote on this measure in the not-distant future. National Right to Life is strongly opposed to H. J.

Lindsey, do your job or get off the pot -- call some hearings, as you promised, and go for the Democrat’s jugular. Show that passion you showed during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when you went on an epic rant against that bevy of Democratic presidential wannabes who...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce he’s running for his old Senate seat in Alabama. Sessions is expected to make the announcement on Thursday. His decision to run was confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday by two Republicans with direct knowledge of his plans. They were not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Sessions long held the seat he will now pursue but stepped down to serve as President Donald Trump’s first attorney general. He was ousted after enduring public mocking from Trump for recusing himself from special counsel Robert...
