    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is hypocritical in decrying the impeachment trial as unfair, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., said Wednesday, arguing that Schiff did not allow Republicans to call witnesses during the House's proceedings. Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with host Steve Doocy, Stefanik said that Schiff's comments on Capitol Hill Tuesday show that the Democrats' case is flimsy so they are "scrambling at this point." Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, is serving as the impeachment trial manager of the House Democrats' case. Speaking on the Senate floor during a marathon 12-hour first day, Schiff said that if the House...

    A Thursday Washington Post story attacked Rep. Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.) for "manipulating" an image of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), even though such modifications are standard in political advertising on both sides of the aisle, including from Pelosi herself. "Rep. Stefanik tweets altered photo of Pelosi in GOP fundraising appeal," read the headline of a Post piece. Reporter Felicia Sonmez wrote that the photo "appears to have been manipulated" and shows "a close-up, red-tinted photo of Pelosi, with the lines in the House speaker’s face exaggerated due to the image's unnaturally high contrast."

    Is Elise Stefanik America First or is she just posing? At VDARE, poster Washington Watcher II wrote an interesting take on the new star within the GOP. Washington Watcher II notes that “Her aggressive questioning of witnesses during last month’s impeachment hearings made her a national figure and a prominent White House ally.” However, he points out that immigration patriots should be skeptical of Stefanik based on her track record. Ultimately, he believes that “apparent loyalty to the president matters far more than America First.”

    The one thing the Left has always been great at is "grassroots" organizing. We all know that progressive organizations are almost always behind these movements. Just look at the preprinted, professional signs. They all have the same colors, fonts and political messaging. And it's all done by design.  MoveOn, the progressive political action committee (PAC), is now touting their members' "grassroots impeachment events" across the nation. According to a press release sent to Townhall, the organization has established more than 300 events with more than 50,000 people to take place the day before the House of Representatives votes on articles of impeachment....

    Tedra Cobb, the Democratic candidate in New York's 21st Congressional District, told a group of teenage supporters that she supports a ban on certain firearms but won't say so publicly for fear of losing her election. "When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?' And I said they should be banned," Cobb can be heard saying in the video recorded by one of the attendees. "And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it...

    Republicans sounded a celebratory note as House Democrats' impeachment inquiry wrapped up another day of public hearings Tuesday evening, saying the day's witnesses had served only to highlight fundamental problems in the case against President Trump. “Did anyone ever ask you to bribe or extort anyone at any time during your time in the White House?" House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., asked at one point in Tuesday's afternoon hearing. Former National Security Council (NSC) aide Tim Morrison: "No." Former U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker: “No." Later, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., hit the same notes in...

    Some of America, it seems, has caught on to the inconsequential nature of profoundly hyped hearings which will definitely end or damage the Trump presidency. According to Reuters, when fired FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in July 2017, 19.5 million Americans tuned in. During the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation last year, roughly 20 million Americans watched the contentious hearings unfold. Neither of those had the same kind of 24-karat headline as impeachment proceedings -- and yet, television viewers couldn't care less. Reuters reported that 13.8 million people tuned in Wednesday for the opening salvo in the...

    President Trump praised Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., for her performance Friday at an impeachment hearing, where she asked effective questions of former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and battled with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif. Stefanik took some public swipes at Schiff mocking him at Friday's impeachment hearing by reading old tweets from when the House Intelligence Committee chairman vowed to have the Ukraine whistleblower testify before his panel. The two also clashed over House procedures. “A new Republican Star is born. Great going @EliseStefanik!” Trump tweeted, retweeting a video clip of the 35-year-old congresswoman questioning Yovanovitch. [POTUS...
  • ‘Lying Trash’: George Conway Attacks GOP Rep Elise Stefanik

    George Conway, the husband of White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway and a harsh critic of President Donald Trump, called Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik “lying trash” on Saturday, and urged voters to support her Democratic challenger. Conway, a Republican attorney, was seemingly miffed by Stefanik’s battles with Rep. Adam Schiff during the Trump impeachment hearings. Stefanik, 35, won praise from conservatives following the hearings for going toe-to-toe with Schiff, and questioning how the House Intelligence Committee chairman has conducted the impeachment inquiry so far.

    Elise Stefanik Stood Out on Day One of the Impeachment Hearings ___________ The New York congresswoman was clearly the strongest Republican questioner of the day. Representative Elise Stefanik of New York earned high marks for her questioning of U.S. diplomats on Wednesday, the first day of public impeachment hearings. Bloomberg View columnist Eli Lake called Stefanik’s questioning “very impressive.” Fox News anchor Bret Baier agreed, as did former Obama administration official Michael McFaul and CNBC’s John Harwood. “None of them has much to work with, but Elise Stefanik is most effective GOP questioner by a wide margin,” Harwood tweeted.

    ...In Wednesday’s House Intelligence Committee hearings, rank and file members of the GOP showed some resolve and fought back.....Republicans grew a backbone in the hearing and pushed back against House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff’s impeachment narrative. This is the sort of thing we’ve come to expect from Rep. Jim Jordan, but the fact that Reps. Elise Stefanik and John Ratcliffe also came out swinging speak volumes..... These three are all quite different breeds of Republican....all brought the same level of intensity to a high stakes hearing. Republicans challenged the Left’s narrative not only on the facts but the process as...

    ABC chief political analyst Matthew Dowd on Wednesday tweeted, then deleted an attack at Rep. Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.) after she questioned witnesses during the House impeachment hearing. "Elise stefanik is a perfect example of why just electing someone because they are a woman or a millennial doesn't necessarily get you the leaders we need," Dowd wrote in a now-deleted tweet. Dowd's attack came minutes after Stefanik pointed out during a House Intelligence Committee hearing that although President Donald Trump threatened to remove aid from Ukraine, and asked Ukrainian officials to investigate the Biden family, neither of these things ever...

    Jim Jordan, Elise Stefanik and John Ratcliffe methodically deconstructed the false premise advanced by the impeachment crew. It became clear that both Kent and Taylor held no specific and direct knowledge of the substance behind the claims made by the democrats leading the effort. Jordan pressed Taylor on how he came to have a “clear understanding” that the U.S. aid to Ukraine was dependent on opening an investigation into Trump’s political rivals. Jordan said there was no “linkage” and Ambassador Taylor said he came to his “clear conclusion” based on what other people said about what other people heard about...

    On Tuesday, Republican Representative Elise Stefanik demanded that far-left Rep. Adam Schiff testify under oath about his relations to the anti-Trump whistleblower who is responsible for the beginning of the impeachment inquiry. “The whistleblower should answer questions under oath. But more importantly, Adam Schiff needs to answer questions under oath,” Stefanik said during an interview with “Fox & Friends.” “I was the first member of Congress to ask when did Adam Schiff have access to the whistleblower.” “We know now that that was before the whistleblower submitted his complaint to the inspector general,” she added. “So there are a lot...

    Lawmakers are returning to Congress on Monday following a racist series of tweets from President Donald Trump aimed at four Democratic lawmakers, and Republican leaders as well as rank-and-file members are feeling the pressure to weigh in on the President's comments. But many leaders in the party are so far not weighing in publicly -- including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. "If he issues a statement on this we'll be sure to forward," said McConnell spokesman David Popp in response to a question from CNN. While many Republican leaders in Congress have thus far not spoken out, some GOP members...

The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act limited the SALT deduction to $10,000, and married couples filing jointly are harmed by having the same limit to $10,000 cap as individuals. The SALT Relief and Marriage Penalty Elimination Act would make the SALT deduction equal to the standard deduction taken by taxpayers, encouraging...

    Republican Reps. Zeldin, Stefanik and Budd introduced a resolution Wednesday to condemn the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment in politics. The resolution specifically called out Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, the leaders of the Women’s March, as well as Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar who have expressed their support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) movement. The BDS movement calls for companies and groups to protest and penalize the state of Israel over its treatment of the Palestinian people. Many of those who are in opposition to the movement label it as anti-Semitic because...

    The campaign manager of a Democrat seeking a U.S. House seat in upstate New York quit the campaign Tuesday, after a video showed the candidate saying she wouldn't publicly endorse a ban on certain firearms -- for fear that she’d lose the election. Mike Szustak, who since April had run the campaign of candidate Tedra Cobb, told the Watertown Daily Times that he’s no longer part of Cobb's bid to unseat Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik in New York's 21st Congressional District. The departure follows revelations that Cobb won’t publicly state that she favors banning assault rifles. The video was first...
