Not above the law? For thee, not me, surely.

Democrats’ Campaign Promise: We’ll Destroy America’s Energy Sector … And Economy. J. Frank Bullitt – “First, let’s get it straight why the political left hates hydraulic fracturing. It’s not because it’s an environmental threat.

“So they are comfortable perpetuating myths, as Sanders’ aide did when he declared “fracking is a danger to our water supply. It’s a danger to the air we breathe. It has resulted in more earthquakes” and is “highly explosive.” These claims have all the credibility of a Bill Clinton denial, and the gravitas of playground logic. Yet they are currency in a Democratic Party that should be embarrassed rather then emboldened by them.

American, British And Israeli Elites To The People: There’s No Going Back. Bob Maistros – “The only objective on one side: impeachment. On the other: simple survival.” … “In short, the world’s three most important democracies, all rendered ungovernable.

“Everywhere, the family is in crisis.

The church is plummeting in power and influence.

Even a cohesive society as a countervailing force has been obliterated, in particular by demographic change.

Culture- and economically-shocked voters in all three countries have responded with revolts against government power — uprisings now being brutally suppressed.

The message from elites in all three countries: there’s no going back. We will not relinquish the reins of power, and will shut down your governments to ensure our control over them — and you.

Righteously Angered – Mark Levin Discusses The Sneaky Construct of Pelosi’s Impeachment Plan… sundance – “Thankfully word is getting out; people are starting to recognize the construct behind House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s highly political impeachment plan. [CTH will have more on the plan details soon because key democrats are leaving distinct fingerprints.]”

“In the first four minutes of this interview Mark Levin outlines how Speaker Pelosi is throwing out customs, traditions, processes and protocols within the House impeachment scheme. This is not a flaw of their plan, this is a key feature. …

Additionally, Mr. Levin accurately calls-out Fox reporter Ed Henry for promoting the false narrative, containing Democrat talking points, about the Trump-Ukraine phone call.

President Trump Tweets About The Pelosi/Schiff Anonymous Complaint Impeachment Plan… sundance – “The reason why Nancy Pelosi didn’t hold a Full House vote to initiate an ‘Articles of Impeachment’ inquiry is simple: if she did follow the formal process, the minority party (republicans) would have rights in the process; so too would the executive branch.” … “The House of Representatives cannot construct articles of impeachment through the utilization of anonymous accusations (ie. ‘whistleblower), and hearsay. These tweets are not just POTUS lashing out; these tweets have a very material purpose…

Jim Jordan: ‘When Hunter Biden’s company is under investigation in Ukraine…Daddy comes to the rescue’ at SaraCarter.com – “Who are you going to believe? The guy who had firsthand knowledge and who was on the call, President Zelensky… or the guy who didn’t have first-hand knowledge and had a motive against the president?” Jordan asked.

CIA, Climate, And Conspiracy: More Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix. Tyler Durden – “Never call anyone from the CIA a “whistleblower” unless they are actually whistleblowing on the CIA, without the CIA’s permission, in a way that inconveniences the CIA.” [Luke 6:41 warning]]Some truth but the message is destroyed by the anti-capitalist, anti-corporate, climate alarmism example he provides wherein he illustrates the problem himself. He does not distinguish between the media, the deep state, and the elites. Confusion abounds in his argument. Here’s another jewel, though:

“The deployment of a bomb or missile doesn’t begin when a pilot pushes a button, it begins when propaganda narratives used to promote those operations start circulating in public attention. If you help circulate war propaganda, you’re as complicit as the one who pushes the button.

Many believe that the mass media just tell whole-cloth, outright lies all the time, but that’s not usually how it works. What they do is selectively omit inconvenient facts, disproportionately amplify convenient facts, and uncritically report on dubious government assertions. Basically they only tell the truth when it’s convenient for them, and when it’s inconvenient they are silent. Only telling the truth when it’s convenient for you is effectively the same as lying all the time, only you can get away with it a lot easier.

Impeachment Coup Analytics. Victor Davis Hanson – “The Democrats have exhausted every other mechanism for destroying Trump—and they are running out of time before November 2020 election.”

“recently Representative Al Green (D-Texas) reminded us why the Democrats are trying to impeach the president rather than just defeat him in the 2020 general election.

“To defeat him at the polls would do history a disservice, would do our nation a disservice,” Green said. “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach the president, he will get re-elected.”

Be prepared for a half-dozen Christine Blasey Ford-type witnesses to pop up, and 20 or so unhinged Cory Booker-esque “I am Spartacus” performance acts, along with a whole slew of new Steele dossiers—all interspersed with breathless CNN bulletins announcing new fake news developments with “the walls are closing in” and “the end is near” prognostications. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is already reading fantasies to the House Intelligence Committee and passing them off as the text of Trump’s phone call to Ukraine’s new president. Only after he was called on such absurdities did he describe his performance as a parody.

The Left is hellbent on impeachment and the absence of a case won’t matter. They do not care if they will sow the wind and reap the whirlwind.

This stinks: A biased press is mauling Trump’s TV defenders. Monica Showalter – “As leftists and anti-Trumpsters glide right through interviews with zero probing, Trump defenders, in contrast, are getting the third degree.”

“Apparently, it’s not just enough to attack President Trump any more.

The mainstream media is doing its level best to attack anyone defending Trump, too. They’ve got venom to burn and nowhere was it more obvious than on the Sunday talk shows.

Just look at how bad it was over the weekend – here’s a list.

What are we looking at with this mass media effort to silence not just Trump but Trump’s defenders? It’s astonishing how strong the double standards are, and some of the maulings were quite egregious.

In short, a ‘narrative’ is being created, with conservatives silenced and muzzled, and leftists skating. This is how we get ‘narratives,’ and it’s pretty clear the classic Obama-era narrative-making is now in action. Any questions as to why at least half the public despises the mainstream media? Democratic operatives with bylines means pro-Trump Republicans have almost as many obstacles to being heard as President Trump does. To repeat what Graham says: ‘It stinks.’

In Trump impeachment, ‘no one is above the law’ could backfire on Democrats. Byron York – “The reason is, by stressing that Trump is not “above the law,” Democrats are basing their case against the president on the argument that he broke the law and must be held accountable. But it’s not at all clear that Trump broke any laws

furious sounds of backpedaling?

Anti-Religious AG Twisted the Law Against This Catholic Agency. Tyler O’Neil – “The judge’s ruling made no decision as to the full merits of the case, but merely by recounting the facts of the case, it shows why St. Vincent Catholic Charities should prevail.” … “The facts in this case demonstrate that leftists with anti-religious animus will target even adoption agencies that enjoy very limited exemptions in the least defensible cases.

AG Barr’s trip to Italy on ‘official business’ may be a key to unmasking deep state entrapment of George Papadopoulos by CIA asset Joseph Mifsud. Thomas Lifson – it doesn’t seem to be a vacation and the right people are tossing mud.

The Little Engine That Couldn’t. Roger Kimball – “The Democrats think the very fact that a president is impeached is enough tarnish his reputation and diminish his chances of success in the election. Don’t bet on it.”

“In general, one tends to admire perseverance. We like to think it betokens a certain seriousness of purpose. We remember The Little Engine That Could from our childhood and want to root for the blundering but stalwart underdog. “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.” But in this case, the Democrats are not bringing the Christmas presents of impeachment and the destruction of a duly elected president they dislike to the boys and girls on the other side of the mountain. On the contrary, they are making fools of themselves. What we are seeing unfold before our eyes is not a reprise of The Little Engine That Could but a signal illustration of Chesterton’s observation that madness means “using mental activity so as to reach mental helplessness.”

Already, pocketa-pocketa-pocketa-pocketa, you can hear the furious sounds of backpedaling as a dim consciousness of what they have done with their impeachment frenzy steals over the reptilian brains of the impeachment choristers.

But it is actually worse than that, much worse. I think Thomas Lifson, writing for The American Thinker, is right. The whoops of the impeachment war dance are echoing in an otherwise silent and most severe chamber. All this frenetic activity—the screaming front-page headlines, the salivating attacks on Trump in the now-routinely anti-Trump Drudge Report—all that, as Lifson says, is but the “prelude to the coming time bombs about to explode in their faces.”

What has been happening these last three years is not just an effort to destroy Donald Trump. That, indeed, is merely incidental to the larger project of destroying the fundamental American consensus. I do not think it will succeed. But I am sufficiently disillusioned to realize just how grave a threat these forces pose to what we used to be able to call, without irony, the American dream.

Adam Schiff’s Impeachment Fun Playhouse. Clarice Feldman – “As Daniel Greenfield persuasively argues, these investigations are attempts to delegitimize the President and his Administration, and I predict people are sick of this nonsense.” There’s a lot of ‘there’ there and Feldman provides a summary.

“There’s a treaty signed by then President Bill Clinton and ratified on October 18, 2000 which provides that the U.S. and Ukraine are to mutually assist one another in “the prosecution of a wide variety of crimes” …

The fired prosecutor has written a notarized statement dated September 4 of this year stating that he was fired because of Joe Biden’s demand that he be removed …

Less attention has been paid to the letter in May of last year that 3 Democrat senators, Robert Menendez, Richard Durbin, and Patrick Leahy, wrote to Ukraine’s prosecutor general … This letter is in direct contrast to Speaker Pelosi’s claim this week

The last year has seen an avalanche of fake news — about one major story a month by my count. In my view they have only further discredited the already on its last legs major media and the Democratic Party they promote. I’m inclined to agree with Scott Adams that the political and media elites cannot fathom that their globalist worldviews were wrong, and that Trump was right.

Donald Trump now has to battle CIA spies in Dems’ war against him. Michael Goodwin – “CIA agents are supposed to spy on foreign adversaries. This one spied on the president, then cloaked himself in whistleblower camouflage. His sources are presumably still at work and perhaps planning another run at the president.”

If The Case For Trump’s Impeachment Is So Strong, Why Are Liberals Lying About It? Derek Hunter – “Almost everything about the allegations that have Democrats moving toward impeachment of the President is a lie, a proven lie. And they don’t care.” … “Trump Derangement Syndrome is the Kool-Aid at Jonestown.

Changing the rules for the desire of the moment

Just How Far Will The Press Go To Defend The Impeachment Narrative? John Merline – “The Washington Post ran a story on Friday with the declarative headline: “Four debunked talking points used to discredit the whistleblower complaint.” The story then goes on to confirm all four.

“So, the entire exercise by the Washington Post is not about “debunking” anything. It’s about trying to defend the original impeachment narrative, even as the facts themselves fail to do so.

This is your “unbiased” press at work. Expect to see a lot of this now that Democrats and their media handmaidens can almost taste an impeachment victory.

Pelosi’s House Rule Changes are Key Part of “Articles of Impeachment”, Being Drafted Over Next Two Weeks… sundance – “With the House going into a scheduled calendar recess, those rules are now being used to subvert historic processes and construct the articles of impeachment.” … “The minority will have no voice. This is quite a design.

Breaking – ICIG Whistleblower Form Recently Modified to Permit Complaint “Heard From Others”… sundance – “Folks, this “Ukraine Whistleblower” event was a pre-planned event.” … “Prior to the current “whistleblower complaint” the Intelligence Community Inspector General did not accept whistle-blower claims without first hand knowledge. However, the ICIG revised the protocol in August 2019 allowing for the EXACT type of complaint now registered from the CIA whistleblower.” See also Intel Community Quietly Scrapped Requirement For “First-Hand Knowledge” Before CIA ‘Rumorblower’ Relied On Hearsay.

How about a Bipartisan Treaty against the Criminalization of Elections? Andrew C. Mccarthy – he is caught in a disagreement between two friends, Andrew Napolitano and Joe DiGenova. As he works through his angst, you can gain insight into the basis for the disagreement. The crux of the issue has history.

“Most of the commentary on this has been very politicized (surprise!). For dyed-in-the-wool anti-Trumpers, no technicality is too trifling to be a felony. For the Trump base, it’s all a witch hunt. In light of this, the most helpful source we can turn to is the Mueller Report. (File in: Sentences I’d Have Bet My Life I’d Never Write.)

To hear the media-Democrat complex tell it, DOJ declined because it is beholden to the president and Attorney General Barr is acting as Trump’s lawyer, not the government’s chief prosecutor. No one who actually took five minutes to read the relevant section of the Mueller Report would see it that way. Moreover, the fact that the president is president complicates matters not only politically but legally.

it is a commonplace for the government to seek assistance from foreign counterparts for ongoing federal investigations.

There was no impropriety in President Trump’s asking Ukraine’s president to assist the Justice Department’s investigation of Russiagate’s origins. Okay, you say, but what does that have to do with Biden?

Judge Napolitano’s Descent into Foolishness. Daniel John Sobieski – no dissonance here. “Napolitano’s comments constituted as much of a parody of the truth as the fable spun by House Intelligence Committee chairman Schiff’s recent interrogation of acting director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire over the transcript of the call, which suggests nothing of the sort.

“It’s not the first time Napolitano has done a mind melt with the Deep State swamp creatures, insisting earlier that despite the failure of the Mueller probe to show it, President Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice in the Russiagate investigation. This goofy claim was roundly debunked and repudiated by none other than legal scholar and Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz.

And it would help if there was actually a crime being investigated.

John Solomon on Biden/Shokin/Ukraine … neo – “it’s also troubling that most people in this country will probably never look at it.

Conveniently changing the rules: blowing that second-hand whistle, hard … neo – “This is terrible. Even if there had been no whistleblower allegation against Trump’s Ukraine call, this sets a very dangerous precedent and allows mere gossip to become whistleblower material.

The whistleblower is Christopher Steele 2.0 … neo – “I may have missed it, but did a single Democrat criticize Schiff’s little performance yesterday in which he falsely “paraphrased” Trump’s call and then, when criticized by Republicans, stated that it was a parody? I have never seen such behavior in a hearing of that type, and it is part and parcel of the same disinformation campaign.

“The American people are exhausted by this” … neo – “When I listen to discussions like that, the first thing that comes over me is that aforementioned weariness at the persistence of such beliefs in the face of hard evidence to the contrary. I am also tired of being the lone voice speaking some difference of opinion to a group uninterested in hearing it – and most groups of a single persuasion are uninterested in hearing evidence that contradicts their strongly-held viewpoints. And sometimes not just uninterested, but hostile.

Hyperbolic hysterics and still the reality languishes. The Lawfare sedition

Anonymous Whistleblower Complaint Released… sundance – “If you have read any of the documents that came from Fusion-GPS, Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele, you will likely find an amazing amount of similarity to the format and writing in this “whistleblower” complaint.”

And The Ukraine Whistleblower Is … Oliver Stone. Thomas McArdle – “The nine-page complaint regarding President Donald Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky from a, so far, anonymous CIA “whistleblower” is like something from Hollywood’s favorite conspiracy-peddling director.

“Because of its wording and structure, two things become clear early on in reading the jump cut-filled missive:

1. Its politicized purpose

2. The impossibility of it being the work of a single individual

… Only an outright partisan on a mission to have Trump impeached would consider a phone call to which “I was not a direct witness” to be absolute evidence of guilt, as this letter asserts.

Which brings us to the second clear characteristic of the whistleblower’s tract that becomes evident immediately in reading it: that these nine pages are the obvious work of a team of Democratic Party lawyers.

back on August 28, the panel’s chairman, Democrat Adam Schiff of California, had an astounding premonition of the blowing of the whistle, as he made “almost identical complaints” in a tweet.

As Fleitz said, “this is one of the most unusual whistleblowing complaints I’ve ever seen; I’ve seen a bunch of them. Not only was it perfectly written, but it was written with long legal citations, suggesting that it was written by a team of attorneys.”

The establishment media will now dutifully project this Oliver Stone cinematic entertainment onto their screens.

Over 60% of Americans still prefer the anti-American, Putin-loving director’s myth about the JFK slaying, based on half-century-old communist disinformation, rather than what the easily-accessible facts show to be true. As 2020 beckons, President Trump’s enemies think the voters will believe the plot of this motion picture too.

Adam Schiff, ‘artist of evil’. Patricia McCarthy – “After watching Adam Schiff’s reprehensible performance in his committee hearing Thursday morning, it is clear we are benighted by yet another sinister, scheming member of the House who, like Shakespeare’s Iago[i], is adept at (and enjoys) ruining lives.”

“Each successive ploy the Left rolled out has failed, so Schiff and company invented a new accusation, one that has obviously been carefully crafted by a group of Iagos like those who devised the Russia-collusion hoax and managed Blasey-Ford’s phony allegations. This one has clearly been in the works for months. The leaker is not a legitimate whistleblower, because the president is not a member of any intelligence agency. It’s certain he or she was carefully chosen by this cabal of Trump haters just as Blasey-Ford was selected to be the front woman of the Kavanaugh confirmation ruse. It’s been reported that he/she is CIA and was planted in the White House, probably by Brennan, to find something to use against the President. He or she did not, could not, so this phone call to the Ukrainian president, which contained nothing illegal, no quid pro quo, by default became the nucleus of this latest con. And what a con it is. The snitch’s “complaint” is an obvious group effort, written by lawyers, not the snitch. …

Schiff’s opening statement in the hearing was beyond the pale.

Schiff has been one of the stars of this depraved show, but he has many partners in crime behind the scenes.

His constituents deserve to be furious; he has become an embarrassment. His capacity for cruelty and duplicity appears to be limitless. Schiff is not nearly as clever as Iago, but he certainly is as vicious. He has embraced his role of villain with relish.

Sean Davis puts the pieces together: “whistleblower” plus leaks plus media plus Adam Schiff plus… neo – “Sean Davis went further, in this Twitter thread. The m.o. he describes may start to sound rather familiar:” … “The whole thing has been a Fusion GPS-style info op from the very beginning.

The Congressman Who Cried Wolf. Daniel J. Flynn – “If the Democrats were serious, Adam Schiff would not be their face on impeachment.”

“After failing to substantiate loud claims of “direct,” “significant,” “clear,” and “ample” evidence of Donald Trump colluding with Russians to steal the presidency, Schiff follows up by accusing the president of forcing a foreign government to “manufacture dirt” on a political opponent.

Schiff and other Democrats safely ensconced in districts where elections act as mere formalities mislead their party into enduring consequences that they themselves do not suffer. The prominence of a conspiracy theorist prone to fantasy (redundant?) essentially running the impeachment inquiry hurts Democrats, not Trump.

In some versions of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” only the sheep get eaten. In others, the liar does, too.

Jon Voight: Impeachment Effort Against Trump Is ‘War Against Truths’. David Ng – “This is a crime that the left are trying to force. This is a disgrace by such ignorant followers that have no truth of what truly has been brought back to our country,” he said. “We have gained greatness. We have gained jobs. We have gained more than any president has promised.

Kremlin to Trump: About our conversations and transcripts … Ed Morrissey – “This episode will do considerable damage. If it uncovered profound wrongdoing, it might well have been worth it — but so far it looks like just another attempt to seek revenge over a bitter election loss.

via Instapundit: Former CIA official on whistleblower: ‘How could this be an intelligence matter?’I’m more worried, however, that this latest instance of blatant politicization of intelligence by Trump haters will do long term damage to the relationship between the intelligence community and US presidents for many years to come.

Pro tip from Pelosi: Barr’s gone rogue Ed Morrissey – “Here’s the main problem with all of this: how can we know there was a cover-up when no one has corroborated any of the complaint yet?”

Impeachment Just Another Means For Democrats To Rip The Country Apart. J. Frank Bullitt – “Hawaii’s Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Tuesday that impeaching President Donald Trump would be “terribly divisive” for the country. She’s right. And that’s exactly what her party wants. The Democrats have been tearing America apart for some time.”

“By segragating America into two parts — vile, retrograde deplorables who can’t be trusted, and educated, forward-looking progressives — Democrats are setting up a society in which they wouldn’t govern under constitutional limits but rule by political mandate. All power must be turned over to them to keep the barbarians outside the gates. Just as the Cloward-Piven strategy was to create a financial/institutional/societal crisis so profound that it required radical government intervention, seeding the specter of racism and white supremacy is designed to yield a permanent Democratic regime.

Climate Worship Is Nothing More Than Rebranded Paganism. Sumantra Maitra – “We’re seeing sexualized dances, hallucinogens, worshiping nature, confessing sins in pagan animism, worshiping purified teen saints, all to promote a supposedly greater cause.”

“The reality is, of course, completely different. Much less than destroying the planet, climate change isn’t even a settled science. Conservatives don’t disagree that climate is changing. That is a straw man. Conservatives, however, are opposed to hysteria, have skepticism about the rate of the climate change, and would like to see an actual cost-benefit analysis of the radical changes being demanded.

More important than that, conservatives understand that climate change is cynically used by a certain section of people to justify their political goals of steering the West away from its way of life, a way they perceive to be evil and harmful, hetero-patriarchal, and capitalist. How? Appealing to the faith-based part of human brains, the need for subservience, and propping up children as human shields.

The modern left is a combination of two of the worst impulses in human history. First are the ultra-privileged bourgeoisie, which, having lost their old Judeo-Christian faith, are instinctively attracted to pre-civilized rituals, from overt sexuality to fewer familial ties. Consider Late Roman public orgies, and you get an idea. At the same time, human minds feel a gaping void that still needs to be filled by an alternate faith. It is in that intersection where this occultist, apocalyptic climate paganism comes from. It gives some privileged people a noble purpose.

Understanding the climate movement: the impotence of science. Paul Rossiter – “Like many other ethical and well-meaning scientists, I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the climate “science” debate.

“By resorting to rigorous measurement and analysis of real data, we have a reasonable (but perhaps naïve) expectation that the facts will determine the outcome of the AGW argument. And yet, despite the huge amount of information available, much of it through sites such as WUWT, it appears that the popular debate is clearly being won by the alarmists. Seemingly reputable organisations like IPCC, WHO, WWF, NASA, NOAA, CSIRO, EPA keep issuing reports heralding pending climate doom that appear to be at odds with any unbiased examination of the facts. And when they do, they are immediately picked up by an opportunistic mainstream press and amplified through social media, leading to widespread fear amongst the population, clearly evident in the recent “strikes for the climate”. Ill-informed adolescents become the new Messiahs, preaching the climate doom gospel and given standing ovations in the fact-free climate gab-fests.

That the ethical scientific community appears to be losing the debate indicates that there are much more potent forces at play, both ideological and financial. It appears that the whole climate debate is little more than a convenient vehicle to push a deeper agenda. Scientific fact, of which there is much debate in WUWT, is little more than a bye-line.

When caught with the goods, play dumb

False Binaries and Faux Virtues. Peter Smith – “As different as they are, false choices share a binary characteristic. Do as we say or face catastrophe or otherwise transgress against nature or morality. There is no third way apparently. Let me give you an inkling of what I mean.

Impeach Joe Biden. John Merline – (Have you ever noticed how, when a scandal involves a Democrat, the mainstream press passively sits around and waits for evidence to “surface”?)

Further Evidence Intelligence Community Inspector General is Part of Lawfare Alliance… sundance – “The center of the Lawfare Alliance influence was/is the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD.

“The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) is Michael K Atkinson. ICIG Atkinson is the official who accepted the ridiculous premise of a hearsay ‘whistle-blower‘ complaint; an intelligence whistleblower who was “blowing-the-whistle” based on second hand information of a phone call without any direct personal knowledge, ie ‘hearsay‘.

Adam Schiff Accuses President Of ‘Shake-Down’ Of Foreign Ally. It’s Going To Backfire On Him. Sara Carter – “Even though Trump never asked Zelensky for a favor, Schiff, who has been known for his incendiary allegations against the president, lauded the whistleblower. Schiff even questioned if the transcript was real, questioning the integrity of the transcript and if any portion was left out of it.

“I Was Not A Witness To Any Of It” – ‘Whistleblower’ Complaint Released To Public. Tyler Durden – “Simply put, some folks told some other folks about administration folks that might be talking to some Ukrainian folks?” … “Perhaps he would better named a “gossip-blower

Kim Strassel: “Media Got This All So Wrong”. Scott Johnson – “Having read DOJ’s Trump-Ukraine release, here’s the real story: This is another internal attempt to take out a president, on the basis of another non-smoking-gun.

“I am particularly interested in this comment in 10: “Media got all this so wrong.” Consistent with Kim’s comment in 1, it is as though the purpose of the media “whistleblower” coverage that preceded release of the transcript yesterday had no purpose other than to cater to the impeachment hysteria that has driven the Dems since the 2016 election “to take out [Trump].”

Russian Foreign Ministry: Pelosi Is Making U.S. ‘Laughing Stock of the World’. Patrick Goodenough – “In her sardonic posting, Zakharova noted that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had made public not one but thousands of documents, and yet Democrats had been offended by him and “began to chase him around the world.

The Fastest, Most Premature Impeachment in American History. Tyler O’neil – “The impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump is arguably the flimsiest and most premature impeachment in American history. It’s also the fastest by far.

Leland Keyser, hero. Paul Mirengoff – “Her heroism resides in the way she resisted strong pressure to back up Ford’s story or, if not, at least be less categorical in denying it.

Instapundit – “Ed already posted this, but i just wanted to emphasize how awful these people are: Kathleen Parker: the other victim of the kavanaugh saga. She said the party in question never happened, and got pressured by Christine Blasey Ford’s friends — her own classmates — to change her story:

Democrats Play Dumb. John Hinderaker – “We have seen this over and over again: Trump will say something perfectly sensible that would be understood by any person of normal intelligence, but Democratic Party reporters and spokesmen willfully pretend to misunderstand him, and then attack the faux interpretation that was theirs alone.

Process denied

over anxious. Jump the gun. Keep repeating the same mistakes over and over … where does it lead? What does it say?

The Latest Impeachment Frenzy Is About #Resistance, Not High Crimes And Misdemeanors. John Merline – “Democrats could have gone through the normal procedures to get the information from the White House rather than jump immediately to talk of impeachment.” … “Here’s just a partial timeline of the many previous calls for Trump’s impeachment that turned out to be frivolous:

Here Comes the SSCI – Senators Burr and Warner Now Advance Whistleblower Narrative… sundance – “There has been so much we have documented about the corrupt intents of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI), that it doesn’t take a deep-weeds political follower to see where this is going.” … “As with the Trump-Russia investigation, Warner and Burr now insert themselves into position in order to advance the Trump-Ukraine investigation.

Trump Administration Will Release Transcript, IC Complaint and ICIG Documents Outlining Whistleblower’s Motive: “Severe Political Bias”… sundance – “This information will likely be released tomorrow in combination with the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and President Zelensky:” also, zerohedge reports “the whistleblower has retained attorney Andrew Bakaj – who “interned for Schumer in the spring of 2001 and for Clinton in the fall of the same year,” per The Federalist. ”

Interesting Day – Includes 2:15pm Bilat With Ukraine President, and 4:00pm Presser… sundance – “The political planets are aligned to provide a considerably interesting day today.”

Why the Democrats Have Gone Insane. Roger L. Simon – “Joe Biden — their great (alas white male) hope — is being exposed as not just a senile plagiarist, but a senile, corrupt plagiarist with a freaky family out of a Southern gothic novel with tentacles reaching into China and Ukraine.” … “So for the Democrats, trouble ahead, trouble behind. Ergo, impeachment.

“Of course it will never happen. (Pelosi knows that too. That’s why she never held a congressional vote on this “inquiry.”) And indeed the whole spectacle might be amusing in a macabre sort of way if there weren’t important things going on in the world. The president is engaged in negotiations of tremendous significance with the Chinese and trying to neuter as much as possible the violent mullahs of Iran, but the Democrats don’t care. In fact, they would prefer he fail, and seem to be doing everything in their power to make it so. To call that un-American is an understatement. Actually, it’s despicable and deeply immoral, not just for the citizens of this country, but for the world. What children!

Biden Ukraine dealings – 7 essential facts. Peter Schweizer – “Editor’s note: Peter Schweizer and the Government Accountability Institute spent three years investigating former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter and their dealings in the Ukraine and China. The research culminated in the #1 New York Times bestselling book “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends” (Harper Collins, March 2018). Below are some of the results of the investigation.”

Pelosi’s ‘impeach Trump’ announcement a bad, bad sign for our republic. Joshua Foxworth – “While few people actually believe that these actions will result in the disclosure of any offense on the part of the president or in a formal impeachment vote, the actions signify that what once made America function so much better than any previous nation is now lost.

“For the first time in American history, a party and its leadership are refusing to cede the ability to set policy to the president. Sure, the president was sworn in, sits in the Oval Office, and issues orders to his subordinates. However, those orders are challenged by the Judicial Branch on baseless grounds. The nation’s intelligence apparatus work in congruence with the media to conjure up and give false credibility to absurd stories involving prostitutes defiling a bed that President Obama may have slept in some years prior. The president’s allies within the population are silenced and assaulted, and there is an unrelenting deluge of propaganda against the president and his supporters.

The Democrats’ Ukraine hoax. Patricia McCarthy – “Chutzpah hardly describes what the deranged Left has been doing the past few days.” … “As usual, the Democrats have accused Trump of what Democrats have themselves been doing for decades, getting rich in office by any and all means that present themselves.”

“Virtually all the Democrats, past (Harry Reid, Al Gore) and present, who have risen to the top of the party’s food chain are blatantly corrupt. With their silly new ploy, they will only bring attention to their own duplicitous natures. They are likely counting on the Republicans to, as usual, become frightened of their own shadows and do nothing. One would think there would be one or two of them in Congress with the courage to fight back but there is only Trump and his growing base of supporters.

No biggie. Dem Senators (and Biden) threatened Ukraine funding over Trump investigation. Jazz Shaw – “Over at the Washington Post, Marc Thiessen has dug into a couple of different stories that sound eerily familiar. The first one has to do with three Democratic Senators who penned a love letter to the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, pressuring him to not drop four investigations that they felt were vital to the Mueller probe.

Suicide Is Not Collateral Damage to Dismiss

FOIA Release of McCabe Memo Highlights Much More Than Rosenstein’s “Wear a Wire” Controversy… sundance – “A Judicial Watch FOIA Lawsuit has resulted in the release of a May 16, 2017, memo written by then Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

“There are three aspects to this McCabe memo that warrant attention: (1) Rosenstein’s willingness to wear a wire. (2) Evidence that Rosenstein took Mueller into the White House on May 16, 2017, as a set-up to interview Mueller’s pending target; and (3) the CURRENT redactions to the memo indicate CURRENT efforts by the CURRENT AG Bill Barr to protect a corrupt endeavor that encompasses Rod Rosenstein. While all three aspects are alarming; the last aspect is concerning in the extreme.

Whistleblower Hysteria: Why Democrats Don’t Want To Investigate Joe Biden And Son. Sara Carter – “The President’s battle with them is fierce and the actions of these individuals are extremely dangerous to our democracy and the basic concepts in ethics that made our society – American society – trust in journalists.

“Trump openly stated that he spoke to the Ukrainian president about Biden. There is nothing wrong with him doing so. It looks like some of his enemies in the intelligence community found another way to get what is considered highly classified phone conversations public and in the media. Remember, the way they did with former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

This time, an undisclosed whistleblower, with intelligence access, reported the President’s conversation to the Inspector General. That’s all it took and voila, eventually the story was leaked. If this is the case and Democrats want the the report of his conversation, shouldn’t the American public have the right to all conversations with previous Presidents and the Ukrainian government.

And why does the media and Democrat Party ignore the real evidence that has exposed some in their own party.

In Ukraine matter, Democrats apply Russiagate lesson: Strike fast, don’t wait to find out what happened. Byron York – “The life of the Trump-Ukraine affair can be measured in days and the most basic facts of the matter are still unknown. Yet, many Democrats and their allies in the media are already renewing their calls for the impeachment of President Trump.

“So now, with many of the president’s adversaries in a high state of agitation about the Ukraine story, the lesson of Trump-Russia is: move fast, don’t withhold judgment. And don’t want for the results a long, ponderous investigation. It might not produce the ending Democrats want.

The whistleblower and the Biden boomerang … neo – “But some of them also have a conviction that they are correct about Trump’s evil nature, and that if they just keep digging, they are sure to find evidence of that evil. So each time something surfaces that has even the smallest chance of destroying him, they latch onto it and actually believe it, welcoming it with joyous relief that finally, finally, their dreams are going to come true.”

Like It Never Even Happened. Steve Feinstein – “This is exactly how the Democratic Party operates these days.”

“Whenever one of their current talking points or policy planks is shown to be dishonest or wildly inaccurate or completely deceptive, the Dems don’t apologize or modify their position or readjust their thinking in the slightest. Instead, they do exactly the opposite: they dig their heels in deeper, reconfirm their existing stance and plow forward as if the contradictory new evidence never came to light.

For the current-day Democratic Party, there are no setbacks, nothing to contradict their narrative, nothing that gets them to step back from an aggressively staked-out pre-planned position. Regardless of the events on the ground, Democrats always double down and push forward like it never even happened.

When Men Kill Themselves Over Unproven Allegations, Me Too Has Gone Too Far. Libby Emmons – “Me Too started with a hashtag, then morphed into a trend of public humiliation, trial by media, and personal boycotts that altered the standards by which a person is judged.”

“Without media outlets at your command, however, there’s no way to give a defense in the court of public opinion. A public defense on social media makes you look like a jerk, and therefore guilty. An admission of guilt often does not result in redemption but further ostracization.

It is harming to both men and women to destroy the standards of conduct between the sexes and replace it with a collection of feelings that change months, years, or even a decade later. Both end up on edge, second guessing their interactions. The men who are caught in this snare have a right to know what the rules are before they break them. Punishment by social mobbing is never an acceptable form of justice.

Top-level climate modeler goes rogue, criticizes ‘nonsense’ of ‘global warming crisis’.

The Trump and Modi rally in Texas… neo – “Note the touch (which Althouse also points out) of the phrase “bowels of the stadium.” Can you imagine if this rally had occurred during the Obama administration, with Obama and an Indian Prime Minister doing the same thing? It would have been hyped to the skies, and there wouldn’t have been a “bowel” or an “ego” in sight.

Where the preumption of guilt leads

Mitch McConnell: Democrats’ Pattern is ‘Shoot first, correct the facts later’. People notice the old communist ethos: ‘show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.’

“When the simple notion that judges should be faithful to the Constitution looks like an attack on your agenda, maybe it’s your agenda that needs a makeover, not our independent judiciary. When you are this willing to launch unhinged personal attacks, you reveal a whole lot more about your own radicalism than about the men and women you target.

California to ban facial recognition software in police body cams? Jazz Shaw – “We’ve already covered numerous stories about cities in California passing legislation designed to ban the use of facial recognition software by law enforcement. Apparently it’s too easy to catch criminals these days or something.

“I understand the valid concerns some people have over facial recognition software because some of it is still quite error-prone. But I’ve yet to see one documented instance where a person was incorrectly identified by the software and then went on to be tried for a crime they didn’t commit. The results are always looked at by a human being who can quickly figure out that the technology screwed up. This should be doubly true in the case of body cams because the human officer is seeing the same thing the camera is recording in real-time.

California continues to attempt to make the jobs of police officers more difficult while doing nothing to benefit the citizens being served. This is a sad state of affairs.

“The real bombshell”: CBS News hits NYT over Kavanaugh story to focus on witness tampering. Ed Morrissey – “No one expects the Democrats to admit that they participated in a witch hunt and character assassination, although such an admission would certainly be nice. But maybe, just maybe, they can shut the hell up about it and let us pretend they have some remorse over the Kavanaugh episode. Especially now that CBS’ Jan Crawford has boiled it down to its essence.” Morrissey might be behind the curve with the ‘let it be’ sympathies. Others have had enough and seek justice.

Shameful joke? You might wish

The House Drug Pricing Bill Is A Shameful Joke. Peter J. Pitts – “Patients often lose access to the best medicines when their government adopts price controls.

According to the CBO, to achieve any significant savings, the government would have to follow through on its threats of “not allowing (certain) drug(s) to be prescribed.” In other words, the government would drop some drugs from Medicare’s coverage to save money. That would be a raw deal for patients.

When Americans say, “My drugs are too expensive,” what they generally mean is that their co-pays at the pharmacy are too expensive. And they’re right. But co-pays aren’t tied to list prices.

Goldman Sachs Analysis: Good Grief, Trump Might Be Serious About China… sundance – “What is funny about CNBC pushing this story, NOW, is how the claims within the CNBC story can be fact checked; and their predictions are, well, absurd (especially in hindsight).”

“This Goldman Sach’s claim –made in May– can now be reviewed for accuracy by actual results on import pricing assembled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in September: …

As you can see, four months after the Goldman Sach’s claim, the results are entirely false. The price of imported goods has decreased; additionally, China has further devalued their currency since May, creating an even a larger price offset.

What’s the takeaway? Well first, Goldman Sachs controls hundreds-of-billions. Goldman is the predominant voice that all of the other Wall Street multinationals’ look toward. Goldman is the incubator for almost all of the financial experts at the Fed. Goldman is also the baseline for all of the main Wall Street pundits….

Goldman is also 100% demonstrably wrong.

NYTimes Does it Again: Omits The Fact that Kavanaugh’s Accuser Was Clinton’s Defense Attorney. – “In a major twist, NYTimes editorial was pressured to make a correction to it’s bombshell story” … “NYTimes was pressured to update its story only after The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway flagged the article’s omission on Twitter:

“Nevertheless, democratic presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker and Julian Castro, among others, were fast to declare that Kavanaugh “must be impeached,” citing the NYTimes allegation.

Media Weaponized: Continued Assaults On Kavanaugh Are Political Warfare That Should Concern Us All. Sara Carter – “The story delves into white privilege, prejudice and every other angle you can imagine. Kavanaugh is the villain of privilege and Ramirez is the innocent victim, who as a college student was forced to grow up too soon.

“The New York Times, along with other main stream outlets, have not hesitated in publishing damaging stories on Justice Kavanaugh. Many of the stories they have already published were based on unverified allegations and contained no proof of the sexual assault accusations he was being accused of by several women who claimed to have known him in high school and college.

CNN, MSNBC, as well as, numerous pundits smeared his name on the cable networks. How can these outlets and news organizations get away with printing hearsay? Because the executives at these media outlets are not holding their writers to the same standard they would if the story was about someone they supported. …

The all out assault campaign on political opponents can only exist because the main stream media has chosen a side. Those executives believe they know more than the American people and challenge any figure, particularly Justice Kavanaugh, because he is a direct threat to their leftist ideals. The media has been weaponized in a way we have never experienced in modern history and only because those running the organizations have allowed it to be. It erodes our Democracy and frankly, makes us as vulnerable as banana republics where media outlets side with political candidates and are in the pockets of their nations intelligence agencies.

That Helpful Kavanaugh Reminder. Rod Dreher – “And then the Democrats went to work, attempting to destroy the man based on unconfirmed, and unconfirmable, allegations, and his sex and ethnicity.

“And on and on. More to the point, Republicans did not invent the mob-like behavior of the news media in the Kavanaugh affair. In the last 24 hours, I’ve heard from three friends — two Democrats, and one anti-Republican independent — who have written to express profound concern about this political moment, and the behavior of the liberal mob. One of the Democrats — no fan of Trump or Kavanaugh — told me that her party has lost her over all this. The independent told me he hasn’t voted GOP in 30 years, but that may change this November, because of the “malice” (his word) on the left. And the third remains a devoted Democrat, but he is agonizing over the demons now taking over his political side, and worries if they can ever be reined in.

NYT: On second thought, never mind about the Kavanaugh penis-pushing incident; Trump: “HORRIBLE PEOPLE … are looking to destroy”. Ed Morrissey – “The book’s authors, both reporters for the paper, crafted this article to deliberately deceive readers. They published the allegation while hiding the denial. That’s not reporting — it’s advocacy, and particularly inept advocacy at that. This calls into question the veracity of everything else this pair has done and will do with this subject matter, and perhaps beyond that as well.

“The New York Times owes Brett Kavanaugh an apology, and a full retraction of this article rather than just an “editor’s note.” Their reporters found nothing more than yet another example of uncorroborated campus rumor about events from three decades or more ago, fueled by politics and a need to sell books and papers. Everyone associated with this should be ashamed of themselves, assuming that any of them have the capacity for shame.

Trumped Out? Victor Davis Hanson – “After nearly four years of ceaseless attacks by Democrats and the press, the strange thing is not that Trump can be occasionally wearisome, but that he is even still breathing.”

Guns and Poses: Democrats Demagogue Death. David Catron – “Welcome to the jungle of phony stats and irresponsible policy proposals.”

What have the Houthis wrought? Bill Schanefelt – “The weekend attack on the Saudi oil refinery may well be looked back at as a true hinge moment in history, for it represents the first time a world power, Iran, through its agents in Yemen*, struck another world power with large numbers of drones in a coordinated fashion.”

Getting an education in the Big Apple: George Packer’s honesty, a parent’s dilemma … neo – “I didn’t really write this post to muse on the dilemma of George Packer the individual.

Deadly game or harmless fun?

The Competence Vote… sundance – “Donald Trump, now President Trump, is one of the most consistent people in history when it comes to his big picture views; and also his big picture solutions. There are small shifts, and slight changes in the direction toward the solution, but ultimately the big picture destination is consistent.

DOJ Files A Devastating Brief Exposing Jerry Nadler’s Impeachment Inquiry Scam. Bonchie – “The game in this case is that Nadler wants to pretend he’s emperor with no guidelines while not having to pay the political price of having House Democrats actually vote as a majority to impeach.

“Judges, if they are fair, don’t usually like double talk and political games. That’s exactly what the Democrats have been doing. They continually downplay impeachment publicly, claiming that what Nadler is doing isn’t actually an impeachment inquiry, then they run to their base and tell them the opposite. …

Let’s be clear, if Nadler gets away with this, it opens the door for every single House majority to target and handicap a sitting president based on nothing more than supposition and suspicion. Normal oversight is fine. Proclaiming you can override executive privilege and force testimony by abusing impeachment powers is not.

Meltdown when no other response can be imagined

The Democrat debate was terrifying. Who are these people? Patricia McCarthy – “No made-up accusation is over the line. No plan to eviscerate the Constitution is a bridge too far.

“Legitimate historians are rare these days; nearly all have been politicized by academia and its power to persuade, and by its love of Howard Zinn’s slanderous and wholly inaccurate version of US history.

Only the perceived crimes of America matter now. We are all to be indicted for being born here. We are to be condemned and punished if born Caucasian, as if we had a hand in the nature of our birth.

The debate of Thursday night should be a huge wake-up call for all freedom-loving Americans. Every one of the Democrat candidates wants to curb nearly all of the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights — speech, assembly, the right to bear arms. They mean to restrict our access to health care, fuel, food, electricity, mobility by car or air, goods in markets.

The fact that there have been no American flags on the stage at any of the Democrat debates says it all. One thing is certain: This election season is going to be a bumpy ride. Like the colonists of 1776, we are looking at the choice between freedom and tyranny. All Americans need to be cognizant of the deadly seriousness of their vote in 2020. Trump’s style and his tweets may offend some but his dedication to the preservation of America is boundless. He has pledged his life and fortune to the cause. Gratitude is in order

Young conservative in burning face ad: ‘I don’t care about AOC’s feelings’. Zachary Leeman – “@AOC response is the Democratic party in a nutshell. They are more offended by truthful words than the acts of their political ideology that has killed millions of innocent victims. I don’t care about @AOC feelings — I care about stopping her lies about the lies of socialism,” Heng tweeted.

““This is the face of socialism and ignorance. Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horrors of socialism? My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life. That’s socialism. Forced obedience, starvation,” Heng narrates during the commercial.

She continues, “Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white and not I’m outrageous, racist, nor socialist. I’m a Republican.”

AOC had a meltdown in reaction to the ad.

If the AOC response isn’t indicative, try Allahpundit: The “burning AOC” anti-socialism ad – “I groaned last night as I watched this since the entire dynamic was apparent in an instant.” It’s a double standards deja vu. Allahpundit and Juan Williams seem to have a lot in common when it comes to political knee jerking.

General Flynn Goes On Offense Against the Deep State. John Hinderaker – “It appears that Ms. Powell may have sources inside the bureaucracy where she once worked; or possibly she has just done a better job of assembling the bits and pieces of information that have become public over the last three years than anyone else (with the exception, I hope, of John Durham and William Barr). The gist of her argument is that the federal government’s prosecution of General Flynn is so corrupt, so dishonest, so egregious, that it should be dismissed. That is how it looks to me. We will see whether Judge Sullivan agrees.”

Income gains for US households and workers are much more upbeat than what’s being reported by the media. Mark Perry – “a closer look at the Census Bureau data reveals there are several reasons that it’s maybe not such “a darn depressing story,” and might be a much more optimistic story of income gains for Americans than is being reported by the media.

Contempt and its foundations

Debating A Murderer President, A Racist USA, A Dying Planet. Thomas McArdle – “But what actually stood out, for all the claims that “the American people are so much better than this,” as Sen. Kamala Harris said, and promises to “trust the American people,” as Mayor Pete Buttigieg put it, is the contempt shown on that stage in Houston for the people’s judgment – and their character.

“Presumably, Trump would like to kill the people who enjoy record high employment under his policies. Apparently, white supremacist presidents giveth and taketh away.

So why exactly would we want to give these supposed distributors of racially motivated punishments more cash?

The way to save our dying planet is apparently by killing our racist country’s economy.

There was a lot more. Harris, who can’t make up her mind on her health reform proposal, claimed: “Under my Medicare For All plan, people have the choice of a private plan or a public plan.” Maybe “Medicare For Some” would be a better name for that.

Warren seems to think she can increase China’s minimum wage, not just ours:

Self-loathing is a strange, new strategy for winning the White House, but next year will reveal whether it can work.

Gaetz: Dems Impeachment Push are ‘Perverting The Founding Fathers…Safeguards’. Sara Carter – “last week I argued that Nadler’s push for impeachment is not just a crisis for Trump but one for America. I stand by that argument. The Democrats continue to push multiple false narratives in an effort to target Trump.”

“Remember, over the past several years Nadler, Rep. Adam Schiff and other Democrats haven’t wasted any time spreading false rumors. They have spread disinformation campaigns against the Trump administration.

Nadler’s committee, along with his Democratic colleagues, argue the resolution is similar to procedural votes that took place during the impeachment investigations into Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. Not true. And they still have no evidence of obstruction and no evidence that Trump has committed any crime.

Most importantly, don’t buy this Democratic narrative America. All these lawmakers are doing is wasting your tax payer dollars on more nonsense and political theater.

This is politics at its worst and damages our nation far more than Trump.

Why Did the Deficit Just Top $1 Trillion? Here’s Another Clue For You All. John Merline – “As night follows day, Trump administration critics blamed the tax cuts. … And once again, the data prove them wrong.”

“It should go without saying that these levels of spending growth are unsustainable. Yet instead of confronting them, lawmakers and the Trump administration are aggravating them. Entitlement reform is a non-issue at the moment. Every increase in defense spending has to be matched with a hike in spending on domestic programs. The national debt continues to explode.

“In other words, some act of senseless plane violence, perhaps by the planes’ pilots who aimed so carefully? Or perhaps accidentally? Who knows? As Rep Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) so memorably expressed it, “some people did something.”

They updated the official death toll to “nearly 3,000” from the earlier 2,000 — still calling the victims “lost,” as if they wandered off into a forest in some strange land, never to be found after all this time, instead of the more accurate “deliberately slaughtered.”

“What continues to amaze me is the desperation among Democrats and their media allies to prevent this from happening. Either you believe that we have immigration laws for a reason or you don’t. And if they really don’t support open borders (as many of them try to claim), why would you object to a wall, fence or barrier that helps control the flow of people?

Sotomayor’s “blistering” dissent on asylum rules. Jazz Shaw – “By a seven to two margin, the justices agreed that the rule, which essentially acts as a safe third country agreement (without Mexico’s participation) could remain in effect while the case continued through the appeals process.

“But what is Sotomayor actually objecting to? Her comments about the Trump administration rushing the rule through without having a period for public comment speak to normal practices. But the President has declared an emergency on the southern border, so some of the usual rules won’t apply. (And how often do the words “normal” and Donald Trump collide in the same sentence anyway?) The point is, she cast her vote based, in part, on tradition rather than law.

While this may be a deviation from the normal course of judicial review (a point that CNN was screaming from the rooftops when I woke up this morning), it’s also part of the accepted process when time is of the essence. Nobody forced them to take the case early. That was their decision, and seven justices apparently saw it the President’s way. And let’s not forget that they were reversing the Ninth Circuit once again. You could get the Ninth Circuit to ban Trump from eating breakfast if you wrote a mildly coherent brief.

You’d think law would be paramount to a judge but we are seeing that this view is subject to vehement disagreement. Revealing the hoax is a difficult trip.

9/11. When some people did something?

The impenetrable, gloomy rage of the Democrat presidential candidates. Patricia McCarthy – “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” ―Mark Twain

“The Democrat candidates for president exude nothing but bilious anger and hatred for the president and his supporters. Not one of them ever utters a positive word, an optimistic word, or a hopeful word. Their torturous town hall on the fake crisis of climate change was seven hours of vitriol and the revelation of each candidate’s ridiculous scheme to destroy the American economy and quality of life. The only differences among them were the costs of their pie-in-the-sky plans to solve a non-problem and how fast they would be implemented.

One thing was made clear: these are the most hate-filled and, at the same time, the most ignorant group of people ever to grace a stage.

Bottom line? The Democrats have nothing to offer but their wrath, their incalculable rage.

Five things about that double GOP congressional blowout in North Carolina. Monica Showalter – “First, straightforward conservatism, President Trump’s stellar economy, and not being crazy, all count for something.”

“it’s Trump’s party now. … GOP has learned its lesson about putting forward good candidates. … that the forecasters didn’t know what they were talking about. … Democrats are trying to claim this as their own victory anyway.

The WaPo now claims that Democrats are going into the next race from a “position of strength” after blowing a ton of money on the loss but that signals how weak they are, not how strong. These guys are just trying to rally themselves from the knockout they just got into the ropes.

Obama, Not Trump, Outed Russian Spy. Lew Jan Olowski – “President Trump did not cause the Central Intelligence Agency to withdraw a top-level spy from Russia. Obama did. And so did indiscreet intelligence officials. CNN’s report to the contrary is false, as usual.” … “Intelligence officials spoiled a bona fide top-level intelligence source operating inside an adversary foreign government just to damage their own American president and government.

“CNN now admits it “initially withheld” information “which adds further understanding to the value of the informant” and that “was subsequently reported by the New York Times.”

The silver lining to CNN’s false reporting is that it reminds Americans about the importance of protecting the “sources and methods” of foreign intelligence. It is unconscionable that CIA officials such as John Brennan would spoil a deeply embedded foreign spy. Americans must demand better.

it’s what they do, even if it doesn’t make sense

Everything That’s Wrong With Health Care In One Tweet. John Merline – “In 1960, half of the nation’s medical bills were paid out of pocket. Outside of hospital visits, insurance didn’t cover routine care. Patients paid doctors in cash for checkups and routine tests.

“It’s worth noting that at 10%, the out-of-pocket share of health spending is lower in the U.S. than in almost every other country that has declared medical care a “right” and promises “universal coverage.”

What’s needed isn’t less out-of-pocket spending for health care, but more of it. In every other part of the market, choice and competition drive down prices and increase quality. The same would work in health care, if government policies would stop discouraging it.

When doctors’ offices are full of Groupon-wielding patients, the health care system will no longer be “bonkers.” It will be reformed.

Flynn Lawyer Response to Threats and Targeted Harassment by Chairman Adam Schiff… sundance – “Not enough people understand the role of the Lawfare group in the corruption and political weaponization of the DOJ, FBI and larger intelligence community.

“What Media Matters is to corrupt left-wing media, the Lawfare group is to the corrupt DOJ and FBI.

The Lawfare continuum is very simple. The corrupt 2015 Clinton exoneration; which became the corrupt 2016 DOJ/FBI Trump investigation; which became the corrupt 2017 DOJ/FBI Mueller probe; is currently the 2019 “impeachment” plan. Weissmann and Mueller delivering their report evolved the plan from corrupt legal theory into corrupt political targeting. Every phase within the continuum holds the same goal.

The current “impeachment strategy” is planned-out within the Lawfare group.

After the 2018 mid-terms, and in preparation for the “impeachment” strategy, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Lawfare Group members to become committee staff.

The Lawfare group ensures you have the right to remain guilty until they verify your politics and determine your alignment with the tribe. If accepted, your disposition shifts to innocent and you receive a pass to avoid any legal jeopardy…

Nadler’s Push For Impeachment Is A Crisis For America, Not Just Trump. Sara Carter – “Basically, the Democrats are desperately searching for a crime: any crime will do and they are not going to stop until they find one.

“Chairman Jerrold Nadler doesn’t seem to care about anything unless it’s “impeachment.” He has no evidence of malfeasance by the President but he, like Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, don’t seem to care.

They are holding congressional hearings in search of a crime. Mind you, they have no evidence of anything but they are hoping, like they did with their debunked Trump Russia collusion theory, that they will find one.

Remember, over the past several years Nadler, Schiff and other Democrats haven’t wasted any time spreading false rumors, in other words a disinformation campaign, against Trump on their favorite friendly cable news outlets like MSNBC or CNN.

For what? I don’t get this at all. The American people are tired of this Washington D.C. political shark game. I’m sure the American people want a government that works for them and I’m guessing stop all these targeted attacks against the president.

Climate Change Has Been A Routine Scare Tactic Since The 1930s. Martin Armstrong – “It was Malthus who first published his “Essay on the Principle of Population as it Affects the Future Improvement of Society” in 1798.” It’s what they do, again and again, and again.

More than 900 Amazon employees plan strike over climate change inaction. Evie Fordham – “Amazon’s strike will coincide with a 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg’s Global Climate Strike beginning on Sept. 20 as well.” Yes, it’s what they do.

The best speech on Brexit — from a shocking source. Thomas Lifson – “the arrogant, unaccountable transnational organizations, of which the EU is a leading example, have served global elites better than ordinary citizens of their constuent countries.”

“Watch this speech in Germany’s parliament, the Bundestag, by AfD’s co-leader Alice Weidel and start to realize that populism is a global force in the highly industrialized world, and that the complaints we Anericans feel against our elites, and the complaints Brits have against ceeding controt ot he EU, are all of a piece. She does not hesitate to point her fingers at France, which is leading the resistance to a negotiated Brexit.

One America News Network files $10 million defamation lawsuit against Rachel Maddow, MSNBC, and corporate parents. Thomas Lifson – “President Trump isn’t the only one who hits back.”

A NRA Member Makes Some Humble Suggestions on Gun Control. Roger L. Simon – “Few things exist on which there is more BS spoken than gun control.”

“You only have to look to Paris, where personal gun ownership is virtually illegal for private citizens and multiple dozens of people were murdered by jihadis at the Bataclan Theater and across the city, or Chicago, another supposedly gun-free zone, relatively anyway, where five were murdered and at least 29 wounded over the last weekend alone, for corroboration.

People who believe this kind of confiscation or control will solve everything, or even close, are living in a virtue-signaling/morally narcissistic dreamland.

Yes, it’s true that the statistics on mass killings are fudged and exaggerated, but as a member of the NRA I have a few, tentative, suggestions:

Here we go. NRA sues San Francisco. Jazz Shaw – “It sounds like the NRA has a pretty solid case here. If the city had only passed some sort of nonbinding resolution calling the group a “domestic terrorist organization” they might have gotten away with it.” … “But when the city elders decided to declare that they would limit business with the NRA and its supporters, they definitely crossed a line.

Debunking Howard Zinn … neo – “Even before Zinn wrote his book, there was a movement to tear down the way American history had been taught before.

“So Zinn’s book fell on fertile ground, and without that encouragement I doubt it would have had the widespread effect it did. Most of us (and that includes me) weren’t paying much attention at the time. That’s how it was possible that the book’s influence became so widespread. At this point, can a counterbook such as Grabar’s have much effect? It seems to me that the tide against which it is swimming is very very strong.

Is It Illegal for a President to Make Money From Outside Businesses While in Office? Josh Ocampo – “Three lawsuits have been filed against Trump that invoke the Emoluments Clause; two have been dropped and one by Congressional Democrats remains active.” Ocampo is rather confused about the emoluments clause and why cases get dismissed. He does illustrate lawfare tactics based on deceit and distortion and suspicion and distruct work. It’s what they do.

Affording mahem

Did Trump Rallies Really Increase Hate Crimes by 226%? Rick Moran – “As you can see, the left brings Mark Twain’s words to life: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” In this case, you have to ask are the professors that stupid? Or do they think that we are?” Moran has a problem, the ‘both sides guilty’ thing where the only cases he has go one way but that doesn’t inhibit innuendo or judgement sans evidence – or even contradictory to what is readily available.

“Trump makes use of the phrase “fake news” all too often. Many times, what he calls “fake news” is actually accurate reporting of his idiocy and ignorance.

But this is definitely one instance that Trump would be correct in calling out the media for reporting “fake news.” It’s not only “fake,” it’s an outright lie.

The Downside Of Prosperity: Madness Made Affordable. I & I Editorial Board – “No other system on Earth has created greater wealth for more people, and lifted more out of poverty than free market capitalism. But it has also brought a drawback we have to live with: plenty of idle time and available resources to feed foolish and too-often destructive activities.

“None of this is to say we shouldn’t promote prosperity. We are made wealthy only to the degree we are free. Purposely curbing or slowing prosperity to restrain the shameful and sometimes criminal behavior of a few would restrain the liberty of all.

But a civilized people cannot tolerate domestic terrorists, “black bloc” rioters, street brawlers, and violent agitators To let this behavior go on, and in Ayers’ case reward it with a teaching pulpit, is to invite cultural and societal decline.

Bucknell University To Host Antifa Leader Who Promotes Political Violence. Alexander Riley – “At the campus where I teach, this week we are seeing an example of this insidious creep toward the left’s open embrace of violence against those who advocate for conservative ideas.”

Did Jerry Nadler lie to a federal judge? Thomas Lifson – “If you or I lied to a judge in a filing, there would be serious legal consequences, perhaps a fine and incarceration, for our legal system depends on absolute truth in filings to the courts.”

Perception is all: sacrificing safety to give in to fear … neo – “Why would a person planning a mass murder respect a store’s request that he not bring a gun into the store? That would be a bizarre notion.

The long, strange road to passing SB 276 appears to be near its end…finally. David Gorski – “The long strange battle to get SB 276, the law designed to close that loophole, reveals a lot about the difficulty of legislating science-based policy, even in California.

In a recent discussion, “facts” kept being mentioned as if their existence was all that was needed to support certain allegations, assumptions, and accusations. The thing is, facts are like the reeds used to make a basket. Some are strong, healthy, and well woven to create a basket that doesn’t leak and will last. Others are weak and poorly woven so that a basket made from them leaks like a sieve and doesn’t last very long before falling apart. Being able to tell one from the other – how facts are put together and how strong they are for the case being made – this is the challenge.

Or maybe the story of the Three Little Pigs might work better as an analogy for you? Are your intellectual structures made of straw or brick?

The Lie, and how dearly it is held, is a tell.

Natural Disasters and the AR-15. Erik Root – “As Dorian wreaks havoc, leaving some communities in a temporary state of nature, the right to protect ourselves is consequential. The natural right to self-defense is inalienable.

Lies the Left Tells About Guns. Rachel Bovard – “For starters, the “assault weapons” ban of 1994 had no meaningful effect on the homicide rate.”

“The simple fact that we have a right to own guns doesn’t mean individuals must own them, use them, or even like them. But what it does mean is that people advocating further regulation of firearms at least should have a baseline understanding of how firearms actually work, as well as the current statutory environment that regulates their purchase, handling, and use.

Unfortunately, the current rhetoric coming from Democrats betrays a deep misunderstanding about all of those things.

Here are some of the worst offenses.

The Enemies of American Infrastructure. Edward Ring – “America’s inability to build anything big has almost nothing to do with the quality of American engineering, or the capabilities of America’s construction industry. The blame lies exclusively with American politicians, judges, government bureaucrats, and plaintiff attorneys.

“Nobody wants to throw away all environmental protections, but the process now in place of permit delays and litigation has paralyzed the nation. It has become extreme. Americans are wearing out infrastructure that was built decades ago. Thanks to permitting delays and litigation, the costs of replacements and upgrades are prohibitive.

President Trump, who made his billions in the construction business, has done as much as he possibly can to cut regulations on builders, but without support from Congress or the courts, change is incremental.

If these environmentalists, bureaucrats, and plaintiff attorneys actually believe in saving a planet and a people desperately threatened by “climate change,” they’re being awfully impractical.

Kotkin’s analysis is accurate. “Public employee groups” and “the renewable energy lobbies” are special interests. If not one and the same, they are allied with the government bureaucrats and environmentalist attorneys who amass power and money every time they stop or delay another infrastructure project or housing development. They are sapping American wealth, oppressing the American people, and empowering hostile regimes around the world.

The Nuclear Option: Meteorologists, the Professional Fake Forecasters. Charles Hurt – “Sheathed in their nerdy white lab coats and pocket protectors, armed with their little TV weather screen clickers, they are ready for battle against the Great Orange Force of Nature.

“Every shred of information included in the president’s tweet came directly from — that’s right — meteorologists. The very same meteorologists who then turned viciously against Mr. Trump as soon as their own predictions, as usual, turned into total fantasy.

The harshness should not be towards weather forecasts but rather towards the lie and how dearly it is held – the fact that their complaint or accusation is sourced back to them in an early forecast and only about an insignificant part of that forecast.

Security issues can be difficult to clean

The stakes are too high for Apple to spin the iPhone exploits. T.C. Sottek – “Apple attacks Google’s credibility instead of focusing on a vulnerable population.” This is a case of downplaying a crisis that isn’t comfortable. When it comes to security, all computers are vulnerable and any breaches found should bring to mind the idea that many others that have not been found probably exist. Apple also has China problems and is conflicted by these breaches appearing to be a part of Chinese persecution of the Uighur community.

Chick-fil-A opens first international store as eager customers step over bodies of ‘die-in’ protestors. Thomas Lifson – “There is something magical and quietly hilarious about the ability of a fast-food chain peddling chicken to arouse deep outrage from the alienated few and yet record-setting patronage by the greater public.”

“Yesterday, Chick-fil-A ventured beyond the borders of the United States for the very first time, opening the first of 15 planned stores in the Greater Toronto Area, and militant homosexuals as well as animal righties attempted to obstruct customers, some of whom started lining up as early as 6:30 AM, from entering the store.

People observing the tenets of their religion are targeted. How is this not religious bigotry?

The display of self-righteous anger backfired, as customer calmly stepped over and around the bodies attempting to block access and entered to enjoy delicious chicken sandwiches and nuggets.

I recall that something similar happened when the company opened its first store in Manhattan; Mayor deBlasio fumed, protestors gathered, but so did crowds of customers, and after the protestors went away, the crowds continued to mob the store.

Perhaps frustrated by their ineffectiveness, protestors escalated: … The craziness of damaging property and spewing obscenity to “defend love” is obvious to most people.

John Dean: The James Comey of Watergate. Geoff Shepard – “Both are media darlings in spite of outrageous professional conduct.”

“Both Comey and Dean were political lawyers. While holding presidential appointments to positions of extraordinary importance, each intentionally misled his president — and then lied about it.

Both played critical roles in worsening political scandals that were largely of their own making.

Each was less than candid in meetings with his respective president.

Each quickly became a critical actor in an all-out effort to end a presidency.

Both received exceptionally lenient treatment from federal prosecutors.

Both have been feted at congressional hearings chaired by Democrats and are now featured regularly in friendly appearances on CNN and MSNBC, where any questioning about their own prior actions is strictly off-limits.

Each man quickly wrote a bestselling book, spinning his own disgraceful actions in the best possible light. …

Astonishingly, both now teach courses on ethics and professional responsibility, seemingly in the belief their conduct was exemplary to other members of the legal profession.

Details about all of these matters, Comey’s and Dean’s, are easily ascertainable by journalists interested in objective reporting. What is so disturbing is the realization that the mainstream media must really still hate President Nixon to continue to make someone like John Dean their hero — and the same is obviously true for President Trump with James Comey.

Is Chicago a Gun Crime Sanctuary City? Daniel John Sobieski – “Hypocrisy has a new poster child for what Lightfoot fails to note is that what is important is not where the weapons came from, but what happened to the gun criminals and gangbangers afterword,

Mean? Tactics and the invisible war.

Yes, Marianne Williamson, The Left Is As Mean As A Pit Of Vipers. I & I Editorial Board – “I know this sounds naïve,” she said in an interview with the magazine’s executive editor, but “I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this.”

“The politics of the left are animated by those who want to manage, control, and bully. All require a certain level of malice. Decent people, kind folks, don’t want to run other people’s lives. They have no need to call those they disagree with racists, bigots, and white supremacists. Neither do they feel compelled to force society to conform to their schemes.

German Industrial Orders Plunge – The Surface Reason is China – The Underneath Reason is Trump… sundance – “China’s currency devaluation makes their exports cheaper; however, at the same time it makes any of their imports more expensive. As a consequence China buys less… and that now exhibits in lower purchases of German stuff.

“All of those nations who were counting on Chinese purchases are now going bananas. This is why the multinationals blame Donald Trump… and to make matters even worse – the U.S. economy is thriving, while they watch from the sidelines. It’s a delicious dynamic.

For more than three decades global economies have grown by removing wealth from the United States. The U.S. multinationals have countered the economic arguments by claiming those global economies have purchased U.S. treasuries; but that means we trade our current wealth for future debt.

President Trump has reversed this dynamic. We are repatriating our national wealth through new trade policies, and will pay for any incurred foreign debt by expanding our own economy and controlling our own destiny.

Woman Drops ‘Forcible Kiss’ Trump Lawsuit After Furious Judge Views Cellphone Footage. Tyler Durden – “Johnson is also dropping a separate claim that the Trump campaign underpaid women and minority employees, with Zavareei once again slamming the Obama-nominated Jung.

“Trump attorney Charles Harder said in response to the filing: “Ms. Johnson’s court filing last night, giving up the case, represents total victory for President Trump, and fully vindicates him of Johnson’s false accusation.”

“Ms. Johnson’s filing last night also fully vindicates the Trump Campaign, and verifies that the Trump Campaign fully complied with all applicable laws as to Ms. Johnson and all of its other employees.”

Harder had argued that Johnson repeatedly violated a nondisclosure agreement in connection with her work for the Trump campaign.

“The President and Campaign are weighing their legal options against Ms. Johnson at this time, and have demanded that she reimburse them for the attorneys’ fees and costs they incurred in her failed lawsuit,” he said, adding “Just as the President defeated the Stormy Daniels’ lawsuit and obtained an order requiring her to pay his legal fees, so too should Alva Johnson reimburse the President’s legal fees and costs incurred here.”

Interestingly, the MSM seemed to hold this “credible accusation” at arm’s length – perhaps because Trump kissing a black woman would conflict with their ‘super racist president’ narrative, or maybe because it was obvious BS from the start?

The Left’s determination to destroy us from within. Patricia McCarthy – “Candidate Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform America,” and he succeeded in doing just that. He pushed the Democratic Party from what was a semblance of JFK liberalism to abject Alinskyite hate-America radicalism.

“The Democrats now champion socialism, restrictions on free speech, post-term abortion, and the doxing and blacklisting of those with opinions they find unacceptable. They support the abrogation of the Second Amendment. In their view, only criminals should and will have guns.

Every Democrat presidential candidate opposes ICE, the agency tasked with stemming the tide of illegal immigration. All of them have implicitly admitted their contempt for our police and sanctioned violence against them. They clearly value illegal migrants over citizens.

CVS, Wegmans, Walgreens Ask Customers Not to Bring Firearms into Stores. Liz Sheld – “If someone is prepared to slaughter 10, 20 or more innocent civilians shopping in a drug store, do you think they are inclined to respect the “wishes” of a retail outlet that doesn’t want firearms in its establishment?

Maximum overdrive

the movie, yeah, that one (see imdb) – maybe that explains what is going on.

Brexit Has Devolved Into Random Acts Of Vandalism. Tyler Durden – “Brexit has destroyed British politics. That was the goal of the EU’s non-negotiating strategy. And it has succeeded brilliantly.

“The Remain coalition in the U.K. parliament have become vandals.

They would destroy everything about their government, traditions and what they know to be true outside the halls of Westminster to ensure the dreams of their paymasters are made real.

The fact that they would put forward a bill that hands absolute control over future negotiations with the EU to the European Commission is treason. Period.

That they would then hide from a General Election that they know would reverse their coup is an act of vandalism.

Now they will burn down parliament and what it was supposed to stand for if they can’t have their way.

Can Americans Still Co-Exist? John Hinderaker – “It is hard to know what this means, but the idea, obviously, is to use the Left’s boycott strategy. Whether this is actually implemented, and what effects it may have on banks; hotel, restaurant and retail store chains; and who knows what other businesses, remains to be seen. What we do know is that this action by San Francisco typifies the kind of hateful, irrational conduct that has made any civil political discourse in this country impossible.
