What crime? A banana republic style military coup doesn’t need one.

sundance: The “Coup” Against a Sitting U.S. President Became Official on October 29th, 2019… “The word “coup” shifted to a new level of formalized meaning last week when members of the political resistance showed up to remove President Trump wearing military uniforms.”

“ot only did U.S. military leadership remain silent to the optics and purpose, but in the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman he admits to giving instructions to ignore the instructions from a sitting United States President.

In the absence of push-back from the Joint Chiefs, from this moment forth, the impression is tacit U.S. military support for the Vindman objective.

Susan Ferrechio: Schiff signals he will reject GOP ‘sham’ witness requests – “Democrats are building an impeachment case that accuses Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.” The only allowable testimony is that which supports this narrative. All else is ridiculed and smeared if not censored, censured, and ignored.

Adam Mill: Schiff’s Dishonesty Is Certain to Morph Again – “This Ukraine farce will end the way all supposed Trump scandals end: with Democrats finding “evidence” of another scandal. Perhaps this explains why the House resolution retroactively endorsing the “impeachment inquiry” doesn’t actually establish a crime to be investigated or a scope for the investigation.”

“If Adam Schiff were a prosecutor, his November 5 contribution to USA Today would violate rule 3.8(f) when he claimed (again) that he had secret evidence of a secret crime committed by the president. Our system of due process (as codified by this rule) recognizes that it’s unfair for an accuser to use newspapers to claim access to secret evidence of a target’s criminal conduct. …

What crime? Schiff doesn’t name the crime anywhere in his 940-word vanity piece. Instead, he aggrandizes himself and these hearings that give witch hunts a bad name.

Jay Whig: Adam Schiff’s Outhouse Politics – “The California Democrat has assembled new procedures, a sewer of secrecy and lopsided partisan rules, against which the winds of deliberative government may not prevail.”

“Schiff has taken the basics of Anglo-American process, long developed from the time of medieval trial by ordeal into the adversary system rooted in time-honored rules framed around the protection of the innocent from malicious prosecution, and given it an upper decker that it will take a long time and at least two plumbers to fix.

Clarice Feldman: Impeachment Mashup – “Democrats have tried to impeach every elected Republican president since Dwight D. Eisenhower. … They’ve never succeeded and there’s no reason to believe this time is different.”

“Why this practice persists is that they are continually reluctant to accept political outcomes they don’t like. David Hirsanyi argues this point well as well as illustrating perfectly the left’s projection of their actions onto their opponents:

Cristina Laila: HERE WE GO: Dem Senators Seek Docs on Trump’s Alleged Request For Bill Barr to Hold Press Conference About Ukraine – “The Democrats believe that Trump, who is the president of the executive branch, is not allowed to discuss anything with the US Attorney General without their permission.

Roger Kimball: Move Washington Out of Washington – “Anything that can be done to dismantle the Leviathan of administrative overreach should be done. A plan by Senators Marcia Blackburn and Josh Hawley to move federal departments to the states is not the end of the story. But it might mark the beginning of a sunny new chapter.”

Thomas Lifson: What the University of Alabama’s football stadiums tells us about Trump’s popularity – “that temple to football tells us something else, too: regional political differences are at the highest level since the end of the Civil War.”

“America is dividing into two nations, one based in coastal and a few inland urban areas, full of hatred for President Trump and his supporters, and the rest of the country that largely supports him and cheers “USA, USA!” when he enters an arena.

It’s sad, but that’s where we are right now.

Peter Michael Bleyer, MD: Redefining Medicine, Redefining Family – “Today, largely due to government policy, doctor’s offices have been transformed into a big government-controlled business … As older doctors like me leave the field, young idealistic physicians bypass Family Medicine; they are neither interested in working for a business nor motivated by a stifling code of political correctness which fails to recognize the dignity of every human being.” This is the rant of a fundamentalist Christian but his point is illustrated on the door of nearly all medical clinics in an entirely different irrational wokeness.
