    email from Congressman Hice ^ | 10/21/19 | Jody Hice
    Censure Schiff Dear Friends, Congress is entering yet another week of impeachment hysteria with a fresh slate of secondhand witnesses. My colleagues on the other side of the aisle have sidelined all real legislative work, and Democrats are continuing to force this unauthorized impeachment inquiry behind closed doors. Members of Congress take a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the Speaker of the House or the Chairman of the Intelligence Committee has sole power in an impeachment inquiry. That power belongs to the entire House, which is exactly why we...

Much has been regained through the legislature. Many of the infringements on the Second Amendment were imposed as part of the effort to keep freed blacks from enjoying their new rights as citizens.In 1868, in what was known as the “Camilla Massacre”, black marchers and their Republican supporters had defended themselves with firearms, even though several...

    The newly rebellious senator has become an outspoken dissident in Trump’s Republican Party, just in time for the president’s impeachment trial..... Mitt Romney is leaning forward in his chair, his eyes flashing, his voice sharp. It’s a strange look for the 72-year-old senator, who typically affects a measured, somber tone when discussing Donald Trump’s various moral deficiencies. But after weeks of escalating combat with the president—over Ukraine, and China, and Syria, and impeachment—the gentleman from Utah suddenly appears ready to unload.

    The white students gathered around the fire, speculating why parts of the book were not already engulfed in flames. “It’s a hard cover!” shouts one male student in a video amid laughs as ripped-out pages burn, torn from a novel written by a Hispanic author who had suggested white people are treated differently in society. That angered some students at Georgia Southern University. In response to Jennine Capó Crucet’s talk on the Statesboro, Ga., campus Wednesday, where she focused her discussion on white privilege, students gathered at a grill and torched her novel “Make Your Home Among Strangers” — about...

    Students burn copies of Hispanic professor's book after she asked them to think about their white privilege Georgia Southern students reportedly burned copies of an Hispanic author's book after she challenged them to examine their white privilege. Author and University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor Jennine Capó Crucet was at the university as part of a book series for first-year students, according to student newspaper The George-Anne, discussing her novel "Make Your Home Among Strangers," which tells of a poor Latina girl who's accepted to a selective college in New York. During her talk, one of the students reportedly told Crucet, "I...

    A Bay Area news station likely wants a do-over after using a facepalm-worthy racially insensitive headline in its coverage of the Atlanta Braves being bounced out of the MLB postseason. KTVU, the Bay Area’s Fox affiliate, recapped the St. Louis Cardinals’ win over the Braves in Game 5 of the National League Division Series with a chyron that read, “Braves Scalped.” That’s straight out of the yikes factory. Particularly given the conversation that’s surrounded the Braves recently. A Cardinals pitcher of Native American descent objected to the Braves’ infamous Tomahawk Chop and the team responded Wednesday by toning down its...

    Thousands of pro-lifers stood outside in all kinds of weather Sunday to pray for unborn babies and their mothers. People gathered in about 1,600 communities in the United States and Canada for the annual Life Chain, according to organizers. The event brings pro-lifers together in their local communities to pray for an end to abortion and peacefully witness to the truth about life in the womb. In West Reading, Pennsylvania, about 75 people stood on the sidewalks in the rain, holding signs encouraging mothers to choose life, the Reading Eagle reports. “We got rained on quite well but people stayed...

    NAGOYA, Japan — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who led the last impeachment of a president, said President Trump can help himself by taming his frustration over the Democrats’ partisan inquiry and staying focused on highlighting his economic achievements for middle-class voters. Mr. Gingrich points to the example of former President Bill Clinton, the man he helped impeach in 1998, as someone who successfully navigated that difficult path. “Go back and look at Clinton — he compartmentalized,” Mr. Gingrich said in an exclusive interview. “Clinton was very disciplined about saying, ‘I’m working on the American people’s problems, and I’m not...

    A woman managed to board a Delta flight from Orlando to Atlanta with no ID or boarding pass, says a passenger who helped uncover the alleged security breach after the woman in question took her seat. Delta and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) were investigating how it happened, Fox 35 reported. According to the passenger who didn't want to be identified, the woman refused to get up from the seat. "I also had a boarding pass for that seat, and she said very bluntly, 'I'm not moving.'"

    Three men were killed Friday night when they crashed a vehicle into a barrier activated by a security forces gate sentry at Robins Air Force Base, according to a base news release. The Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the FBI have been asked to help in identifying the men, said Houston Coroner Danny Galpin. The men had no identification on them, said Galpin, who was summoned to the crash scene. The incident unfolded about 9:30 p.m. when a vehicle approached the Russell Parkway gate that is an entrance way onto the base, according the release. The driver failed...

    A social media post about a message projected on a Hephzibah High School classroom whiteboard referencing the Confederate flag has resulted in a teacher being placed on administrative leave. The post from a parent of a student shows the projection that includes a Confederate flag and the statement, “a sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister. Think of it like a white trash ‘Save The Date’ card.” It was reportedly used as an example of a story within a story. According to the Richmond County School System, an...

    Controversy is following Ángel Cabrera, former president of George Mason University, as he takes the helm at Georgia Institute of Technology. The reason? His support of the hiring of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at GMU as a visiting law professor. The GT for Survivors group has been vocal against Carbera’s hire for months, but the recently revived allegations against Kavanaugh highlighted in a new book prompted its members to reignite their agitation, despite the fact that the claims have been denied by Kavanaugh’s alleged victim. “Students at GT and GMU don’t think Kavanaugh’s elevation to SCOTUS means that the...

    On Thursday, The Root placed Stacey Abrams at the top of the list of the most influential African Americans in the country. “A year after a shady election denied her the chance to become America's first black female governor, Abrams is still that chick causing all that conversation,” the editors wrote. In its 10th year, The Root 100 is an annual list of influential African Americans 25 to 45 years old. The Root is an online magazine launched by scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. and publisher Donald E. Graham. The list is compiled using an algorithm that calculates the reach...
