  • Whose future is most at stake in the Impeachment Trial?

    Lamar Alexander, Susan Collins, Willard Romney, Cory Gardner, Richard Burr, Ben Sass, Lisa Murkowski represent who is on trial. The Republican PartyThe obvious answer is Donald J. Trump. Trump Haters hope that, even when acquitted by the Senate, his reputation will be so tarnished that it will reduce his chances for reelection, and dishonor his legacy. Or, at least, put the patina of failure on his first-term successes and bring him early lame-duck status in a second.
  • Impeachment Is Not the Issue, It's the 2020 Election: Democrats drive the narrative because so many Republicans in Congress are gullible.

    If you listen to Republicans, the impeachment of President Trump is a “bizarre strategy,” a partisan political blunder by the Democrats, doomed to fail in the Senate, and already backfiring. As evidence, the “hit job” has energized the Republican base, boosted GOP fundraising and, come November, will cause House Democrats in Trump districts to lose re-election. To think House Democrats actually believe Trump committed impeachable offenses grossly underestimates their political acumen. The Democrats regularly run circles around the Republicans. While the latter jumps pieces on a checkerboard, the Democrats are thinking three steps ahead, looking to checkmate the king. The...

    How imbecilic are those Republicans trying to make a name for themselves by supporting the unconstitutional Schiff/Pelosi articles of impeachment? Beyond polite description. Susan Collins, Rob Portman, probably the self-serving Mitt Romney, are each trying to be the biggest monkey wrenches in an already ridiculous endeavor to remove President Trump from office. Each of them should just admit they are Democrats at heart and switch parties. How else to explain their betrayal of their own party? Poor judgment is one thing, like Matt Gaetz voting for Pelosi's meaningless resolution to limit Trump's ability to counteract Iran. That was just dumb,...

    House Intelligence Committee Republicans are investigating the intelligence community inspector general for his handling of the Ukraine whistleblower complaint, including potential inconsistencies in his testimony before the panel as part of the Trump impeachment inquiry, Fox News has learned. Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., first told investigative reporter Sara Carter earlier this week that the panel has an “active investigation” into Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. A source familiar with the committee’s investigation on Tuesday went into further detail, telling Fox News that Republicans are looking at the ICIG’s handling of the whistleblower complaint that sparked the impeachment...

    Businessman Louie Sanchez remembers growing up in a trailer in the South Valley where he said he learned the value of hard work. It’s those working class roots he wants to emphasize when he launches a bid for the U.S. Senate on Monday. Sanchez will join a growing Republican field that includes former New Mexico State University professor Gavin Clarkson; anti-abortion advocate Elisa Martinez; and Albuquerque contractor Mick Rich in the race to replace Democrat Tom Udall, who is not seeking reelection to a third term. U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján and accountant Andrew Perkins are seeking the Democratic nomination....

    Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) announced Friday that he will not seek reelection, making the six-term lawmaker the latest House Republican to head for the doors. "After prayerful consideration, I have decided to retire at the end of the 116th Congress," Roe said in a statement. "Serving East Tennesseans these past 11 years has been the honor of my life, and I will be forever grateful for the trust my friends and neighbors put in me to represent them," said Roe, the top Republican on the House Veterans' Affairs Committee. "As someone who practiced medicine for over 30 years, I said...
  • GOP Needs to Start Playing to Win

    It’s hard to say nice things about Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But, I admire her ability to play politics with everything. Say what you want about the skullduggery she is currently engaged in with the Democrats’ impeachment process, but admit it—she is savvier than just about any GOP member of the House or Senate. Pelosi recently stood in front of a crowd of media and gave her faux comments about how bad she felt having to go ahead with an impeachment vote and that it was about our country and the Constitution and that she prays for President Trump. Give me...

    Conservatives need to address urban concerns and try to bridge the growing rural-urban divide, rather than just denouncing cities as the malign foil of real America. Chicago, Illinois — Looking out over downtown Chicago on a bright, unusually warm Christmas Eve, I get why people love this city, even though I am not really among them. I’m not a city person, and even if I were, this isn’t my city.This is not just a burst of Christmas cheer. Christmas Day will be over by the time I finish writing this article, let alone by the time it is edited and...

    Society has decided to allow gender-confused men to dictate new rules in competitive sports. All this was done in the name of political correctness. Isn’t biology the reason we have separate sports competitions? It seems that biology isn’t a leftist favorite subject! A top-ranked runner in NCAA women’s track is dominating the competition and setting records one year after competing as a man at the same level.

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Whatever tenuous grasp on reality that Joy Reid and her regulars ever enjoyed seems, sadly, to have been lost. Some sort of mass psychosis seems to have gripped the gang. The delusions were on full display on Reid's MSNBC show this morning as Joy and her guests went full Alice in Wonderland. They actually asserted, in a discussion of the impeachment of President Trump, that: The media sees impeachment "through Republican eyes." The media "worships Republican hardball." Members of the MSM tend to identify more with the Republican base than with Democrat voters. It's wrong to report Republican vs. Democrat...

    The New York Times discovered this week that few people around the country seemed to pay much attention to the the House passing articles of impeachment Wednesday making President Donald Trump only the third president in history to be impeached.“It was a momentous day in American history. But, by all indications, it was not a momentous day in the lives of most Americans,” the Times declared. “As history played out Wednesday amid the bombast and rancor of impeachment proceedings, many of them seemed intent on looking elsewhere.”The Times reported on people across the country who remained focused on their day-to-day...

    Our government is broken, and we have to fix it. In this short film, Michael Douglas and RepresentUs Co-Founder Joshua Graham Lynn break down how our political system has been hijacked, why it encourages division and vilifies bipartisan cooperation, and why it’s made Congress so dysfunctional that they can’t even pass the most basic laws to improve the lives of Americans. It’s not all doom and gloom. They also layout the plan to fix our broken political system, and the best part: It’s already working. RepresentUs members have already helped win more than 100 victories nationwide, but to bring about...
  • A judge ordered up to 234,000 people to be tossed from the registered voter list in a swing state

    A Wisconsin judge ordered the state to take as many as 234,000 people off its registered-voter list Friday because they may have moved — a decision that could impede residents of this swing state from voting in next year’s presidential election. The case centers on a letter that the state Elections Commission sent in October to hundreds of thousands of voters, asking them to respond if they were still at that address or to update their registrations if they had moved. Conservatives filed a lawsuit alleging that to avoid fraud, the commission should have thrown out the registrations of voters...
  • Dems impeachment of Donald Trump is way too thin, like butter scraped over too much bread

    Where did the Trump impeachment go? When House Democrats began selling tickets to their President Donald Trump Impeachment Theater — shouting their outrage, preening on those late-night talk shows — it was much meatier business. It would be full of collusion with Russia, blackmail of Ukraine, it would contain extortion and go heavy on bribery. The way the Democrats sold it, Americans were to expect some giant roast, bone in, with a rich, thick gravy, to feed a nation longing for justice from Orange Man Bad. At least, that’s what Democrats promised. But that’s not what they delivered for consideration...

    After months of an above-the-fray strategy, Sen. Elizabeth Warren is harshly criticizing 2020 Democratic rivals Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, calling them Republicans-lite and afraid to defend Democratic values. In a New Hampshire speech Thursday, the Massachusetts senator unleashed some of her most scathing invective against the top-tier pair of opponents. “Unlike some candidates for the Democratic nomination, I'm not betting my agenda on the naive hope that if Democrats adopt Republican critiques of progressive policies or make vague calls for unity, that somehow the wealthy and well-connected will stand down,” she said. “Unlike some candidates for the Democratic nomination,...

    Buh-bye forever, Republicans! That's Joe Scarborough's prediction—or perhaps just his fondest wish. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough predicted: "We may look back at 2020 as a last competitive election against the Republican and the Democratic Party." Scarborough asserted that "chances are very good that by 2024, because of demographic changes, Texas goes blue." Scarborough adopts the patronizing view that people will vote their skin color instead of their interests; that voters of color will docilely remain on the Democrat plantation. If African American and Hispanic unemployment rates remain at historically low levels, as they have under President Trump, there's good...

    On the day after the 2016 election, a pro-Trump FBI agent texted another, saying that “shit just got real” and joked that some people would have to “start looking for new jobs,” DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz’s report released Monday reveals. According to the report, the handling agent, the co-case handling agent, and the special agent for one of the FBI’s Confidential Human Source (CHS), were all fans of Donald Trump, and exchanged text messages about their support. On November 9, 2016, the special agent texted, “if you hear talk of a special prosecutor…I will volunteer to work [on] the...

News of Hunter’s resignation was expected after the congressman changed his plea...
  • Mooch Scaramucci Says Congressional GOP like Vichy Nazi Collaborators

    Let's be clear: Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci wants you to know he isn't comparing congressional Republicans to Hitler—just to the people who collaborated with Hitler! Scaramucci was back on CNN this morning for one of his regular Trump-bashing fests with Alisyn Camerota. The Mooch is of course President Trump's quondam communications director, who, having been defenestrated after a tenure record-breaking for its brevity, has turned into one of the president's most bitter antagonists. Scaramucci vilified the congressional Republicans supporting President Trump as "Vichy Republicans," thus analogizing them to the French collaborators with the Nazis. That was too much even for...
