  • Nancy Pelosi ‘pre-ripped’ pages of Trump’s SOTU speech, video shows

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently made tiny tears into her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address — so that her speech-ripping moment could go off without a hitch. As Trump introduced cancer-stricken radio host Rush Limbaugh — who received the Medal of Freedom during the speech — Pelosi could be seen grabbing the pages off the table. Video shows her making what seemed to be a tearing motion and then placing the pages back on the table. Photos of the sheets of paper show them face down on the table with small slits on the side, near...
  • Pelosi’s sham Trump impeachment is abuse of power for political gain

    Dripping with derision, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exulted that President Trump has “been impeached forever.” “They can never erase that,” she intoned. If Pelosi had a football nearby, she would have spiked it. Her celebratory remarks crystallized what the impeachment of Donald Trump is all about. Pelosi, D-Calif., doesn’t care about facts, evidence or what constitutes an impeachable offense under the Constitution. She cares only about bludgeoning the president for the electoral harm it might cause him in November. This has been Pelosi’s intent all along. Impeachment was her political cudgel. She crowed about it like a pro wrestler who...

    After weeks of hearings, hyperbole, and histrionics over Ukraine-Gate, have House Democrats advanced the case for impeachment? Not only have they not moved the polling, they may have lost ground — in their own caucus. CNN’s Manu Raju caught up with the two House Democrats who voted against authorizing the inquiry to find out whether they support Nancy Pelosi’s call to advance articles of impeachment.Not only do they remain unconvinced, a third Democrat has begun throat-clearing on potential opposition. First, let’s start with Jeff Van Drew, who went public with his opposition to the inquiry. So far, Van Drew...

    Assuming Pelosi doesn't have 19 or more Democrats unwilling to commit political seppuku for the coup, we're going to have an impeachment trial in the senate. Let's hear your predictions! Mine: 45 yea 55 nay Every Republican including Mitt Romney and Ben Sasse vote no plus Manchin and Jones. All the purple state Democrats on the ballot this year vote yea out of greater fear of the communist rank and file than deplorables out for revenge.

    This story will be updated shortly. An internal email obtained by this reporter shows a George Washington University student calling for GW Law Professor Jonathan Turley’s resignation following his testimony Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee as part of the ongoing impeachment probe into President Donald Trump. The email was sent to university deans, presidents, and a select few prominent student organizations. The email speaks for itself calling Turley a ‘sad excuse of a man.’ The email opened, “I hope this message finds you all well, ladies and gentleman. Aside from Mr. Turley, of course.” “I am writing you all...

    Years ago, a friend in the public relations business shared with me his approach to dealing with journalists. “You don’t have to give them what they want,” he said confidently. “Just give them something they can use.” The trick-of-the-trade insight came back as I watched Rep. Adam Schiff savor Wednesday’s hearing. Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s testimony didn’t give Schiff everything he wanted, but did give him something he can use. “The veneer has been torn away,” Schiff crowed to reporters during a break. Later, he added: “This is a seminal moment in our investigation.”
  • "Quid Pro Quo" redux

    Self ^ | 11/20/2019 | Self
    What is a "quid pro quo"? It literally means "something for something", in other words it is simply a transaction in which something is exchanged for something else, presumably of value. In diplomacy, there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG with a "quid pro quo", it is the standard way of leveraging our foreign aid. For instance, "US aid will be withheld unless you stop harboring terrorists". This is an entirely reasonable approach, and by far the biggest justification for the seemingly endless billions we spend on foreign aid. Where things get dicey, is when an elected official uses a quid pro...

    Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, rebuked House Republicans' calls for former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, to testify in the public impeachment inquiry starting next week and confirmed that the proceedings will not probe "sham" Biden claims. Current ranking member Republican Congressman Devin Nunes, in a letter to Schiff on Saturday, asked for Biden, the anonymous whistleblower and several others to testify as part of the impeachment probe, which will move from closed-door depositions to public hearings next week. In response, Schiff confirmed that Biden will not be testifying but agreed to review...

    Nancy Pelosi, hereafter known and regarded as “Trump's best fundraiser for 2020” thanks to a mix of horrible, dystopian, boo chit rhetoric and completely lawless actions which are essentially a “Three Card Monte Scam, which can no real effect except to keep her fundraising machine alive, driven many Americans to fear their government, and by all accounts Trump 2020 campaign will likely eclipse previous record fundraising by millions.Thanks to Nancy Pelosi's efforts to usurp and overturn the 2016 election results Trump can count on American Patriots who insist on not only free and fair elections but, will not tolerate sore...

    The resolution put forward by Speaker Pelosi confirms that House Democrats’ impeachment has been an illegitimate sham from the start as it lacked any proper authorization by a House vote. It continues this scam by allowing Chairman Schiff, who repeatedly lies to the American people, to hold a new round of hearings, still without any due process for the President. The White House is barred from participating at all, until after Chairman Schiff conducts two rounds of one-sided hearings to generate a biased report for the Judiciary Committee. Even then, the White House’s rights remain undefined, unclear, and uncertain –...

    A Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee was ejected from a closed-door impeachment hearing. Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida tried to enter a hearing Monday in which lawmakers from three different committees are interviewing President Trump’s former top aide on Russia, Fiona Hill. Gaetz said he believed he should be allowed to attend the hearing because impeachment inquiries traditionally are handled by the House Judiciary Committee, and he serves on that panel. But the House parliamentarian told Gaetz he is not allowed to attend the hearing because he does not sit on either the Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, or Oversight...

    Just when everyone thought that the United States Postal Service’s (USPS) finances couldn’t get any worse….they did. On May 10, the USPS announced second quarter FY 2019 losses of $2.1 billion, bringing total postal net losses to more than $70 billion since 2007. But be prepared to suspend disbelief even further, it may soon get far worse. On May 8, President Trump announced General Motors’ intention to sell its Lordstown Assembly plant to the Cincinnati-area Workhorse Group (a company that reported revenues of just $763,173 in 2018 and a net loss of $36.5 million) to build electric trucks.  The deal is contingent...

    ROME, February 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Assembling amid banners of the four evangelists and in the holy name of Mary, today an international coalition of 100 Catholic laity mobilized in Rome’s historic center to silently “oppose the Vatican’s policy of silence about homosexuality,” ahead of this week’s Vatican summit on clerical sex abuse. The international coalition is called Acies ordinata. Its name, which Catholic tradition reserves for Mary Most Holy who assembles an army of the faithful to defeat her enemies — terribilis ut castrorum acies ordinate— is taken from the Old Testament canticle, the Song of Songs (6:3, 6:10).  Acies ordinata, photo by Diane Montagna/LifeSiteNews “You...
