Schiff’s New Subpoena and Nadler’s Impeachment Inquiry Are The Death Rattle of The Russian Collusion Probe; They’ve Played The Game Too Long

Westlake Legal Group Adam-Schiff-3-620x317 Schiff’s New Subpoena and Nadler’s Impeachment Inquiry Are The Death Rattle of The Russian Collusion Probe; They’ve Played The Game Too Long President Trump Mueller Investigation Joseph Maguire Jerry Nadler Impeachment of President Trump Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress Allow Media Exception adam schiff 2020

 

Following Robert Mueller’s disastrous testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees in July, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared to throw in the towel on the idea of impeaching President Trump. He indicated that the best way to oust Trump would be at the ballot box. We all knew that wasn’t the end of his impeachment dreams.

On Friday, Schiff, who chairs the Intelligence Committee, issued a subpoena for Acting Director of National Intelligence Chief Joseph Maguire. Politico reported that Maguire is being accused of taking extraordinary steps to illegally withhold a whistleblower complaint from Congress that could potentially be covering up the president’s misconduct.

Schiff issued the following statement:

A Director of National Intelligence has never prevented a properly submitted whistleblower complaint that the [inspector general] determined to be credible and urgent from being provided to the congressional intelligence committees. Never. This raises serious concerns about whether White House, Department of Justice or other executive branch officials are trying to prevent a legitimate whistleblower complaint from reaching its intended recipient, the Congress, in order to cover up serious misconduct.”

The Committee can only conclude, based on this remarkable confluence of factors, that the serious misconduct at issue involves the President of the United States and/or other senior White House or Administration officials.

President Trump appointed Maguire to this position in mid-August following the resignation of Dan Coats. Prior to this, he served as the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

The subpoena demands that Maguire submit the required material by September 17. If he fails to do so, “he will be compelled to appear before lawmakers on Capitol Hill on September 19.”

Politico reported that Maguire’s office replied with the following statement:

We received the HPSCI’s subpoena this evening. We are reviewing the request and will respond appropriately. The ODNI and Acting DNI Maguire are committed to fully complying with the law and upholding whistleblower protections and have done so here.

In addition to Schiff’s action on Friday, House Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler (D-CA) announced that his committee had passed a resolution to establish the “investigative procedures,” the rules, they will follow during their impeachment inquiry. This resolution passed 24-17, along party lines.

Nadler told reporters, “There is no House rule requiring the House take a full vote. In light of this precedent, the committee has made clear it has full authority to conduct its investigation as to whether to recommend articles of impeachment.”

The increased efforts to target Trump coincide with the completion of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz which was announced on Friday.

Last Monday, former US attorney Joe DiGenova said on a radio show that a copy of the report had been circulating inside and outside of the DOJ. According to him, the IG has concluded that the FBI’s initial FISA application and all three renewals were obtained illegally, which is extremely bad news for the Democrats. (The details can be read in this post: Buzz: IG Report Is ‘Being Circulated Inside And Outside’ Of The DOJ And Finds That FISA Warrants Were Illegally Obtained)

If DiGenova is correct, there’s no question that House Democrats are aware of the results and are bracing for bad news. They are responding in the only way they know how. Accuse, investigate, subpoena.

They acted similarly ahead of the release of the Mueller report. They clearly had knowledge long before the public that the Mueller team had not found sufficient evidence to recommend charges against Trump for either collusion or obstruction of justice.

Knowing that the releas would be a huge disappointment for them, they tried to get ahead of it by unleashing a flurry of new bogus charges and investigations against the President.

This is the way they operate. It didn’t work then and it won’t work now.

The problem for both Schiff and Nadler is that they’ve played the game too long. They lost an tremendous amount of credibility after the Mueller report was released. And Mueller’s appearance before Congress finished it. I imagine even their base doesn’t fully believe them even though they so desperately want to.

When they speak publicly now about the crimes of this president, it only serves to highlight the degree to which they’ve lost touch with reality.

I think what we’re witnessing is the death rattle of the deep state coup against President Trump.

Desperate Presidential Candidate Julian Castro Fundraises off His Cheap Shot Memory Attack on Joe Biden

Julian Castro proved one thing beyond a shadow of a doubt at Thursday night’s Democratic debate.

He’s as classless and nasty as his twin brother Joaquin, who is a member of Congress.

You’ll remember last month that Julian endorsed his brother’s despicable campaign to intimidate Trump donors in his Congressional district into silence by way of doxxing those who had contributed the maximum amount to the President’s reelection campaign.

As if that wasn’t sleazy enough, last night during the debate Castro delivered a low blow to Joe Biden that had pretty much everyone coming down against him. For those who didn’t watch the debate, here’s what happened:

At issue is Biden’s plan to allow for a so-called “public option” for Obamacare that would allow people to have government-run health insurance or keep their private insurance plans. He said anyone could qualify and “buy in,” and that “anyone who can’t afford it gets automatically enrolled in the Medicare-type option,” meaning they wouldn’t have to pay.

But Castro, pointing to his poor grandmother’s struggles with diabetes, criticized Biden’s plan for leaving 10 million uninsured people and said former President Obama “wanted every single person in this country covered. My plan would do that. Your plan would not.”

Biden bristled: “They do not have to buy in. They do not have to buy in.”

That’s when Castro sprung.

“You just said that two minutes ago. You just two minutes ago they would have to buy in,” Castro said.

Biden started to say that “poor people anyone like your grandmother who has no money,” but Castro was busy zeroing in on his memory as jeers and cheers erupted from the crowd.

“Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago? Are you forgetting already what you said just two minutes ago?” Castro said. “I can’t believe that you said two minutes ago that they had to buy in and now you’re saying they don’t have to buy in. You’re forgetting that.”

Watch:

As it turns out, a review of the tape showed Castro was the one who forgot what Biden said “two minutes ago”:

Castro’s vicious attack against Biden based on his age reminds me of other Democrats who question President Trump’s mental health. There’s just no call for it.

I know conservatives and Republicans alike have joked about Biden’s numerous gaffes over the years, but over the summer so many of them happened in a row that I stopped chuckling and started wondering if there was something else going on, something more serious and troubling concerning Biden’s health and age.

Also, while it’s true that Castro’s attack on Biden is a blue on blue thing, and as a Republican I should be rooting for the candidates to destroy each other, I feel that there are some lines that shouldn’t be crossed – and this is one of them. If these types of attacks between candidates are allowed to stand in the primary unchallenged, imagine what it would be like during the general election campaign season when the floodgates open with Democrats lining up to smear Trump with questions about his mental health and Republicans questioning Biden (assuming he’s the nominee) about his memory?

There are ways for people to raise questions about Biden’s health and age without making complete a**ses out of themselves. But just like his brother Joaquin, there are no lows to which Julian will not sink, and no apologies in the aftermath which will be given.

In fact, Julian Castro is so proud of himself over his attack (which he absurdly claimed was not about his age), that he is now fundraising off of it:

“I had a critical choice to make on the debate stage last night,” Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary, said in an email to supporters. “I could either play it safe and give Vice President Biden a free pass like everyone else. Or I could speak up, challenge the conversation, and demand answers for you and your family.”

“I’m not in this race to play it safe. This fight — our fight — is too important to me to stay quiet when what I hear doesn’t add up,” he continued. “I spent every second on that stage fighting for you — and now I’m being attacked for it.”

“This is now the biggest obstacle I have ever faced. Can I count on you to take a stand for me with $5?”

Got that? Castro says he selflessly (and erroneously) took an cheap shot against an aging candidate because he’s looking out for the voters, not for himself.

What bull crap. I know they say all is fair in love, war, and politics, but these type of gutter tactics are what people whose polling numbers have consistently been in the basement do when nothing else works.

His desperation shows. And it stinks.

Elizabeth Heng Shuts Down AOC’s Meltdown Over Critical Ad by Reminding Her Facts Don’t Care About Your Feelings

A new ad from California Republican Elizabeth Heng’s “New Faces GOP” PAC that ran Thursday night during the Democratic debate has got people talking.

The ad, which was broadcast on a local ABC affiliate in the Washington, DC area, portrayed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as the “face of socialism.” It’s what happened next in the ad that outraged AOC and her online mob:

A dramatic ad targeting Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aired during the third Democratic debate on Thursday, comparing Ocasio-Cortez’s support for democratic socialism to the brutal Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia.

The ad shows a picture of the young congresswoman bursting into flame to reveal a picture of a pile of skulls. The narrator of the ad, onetime Republican congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng, is the daughter of Cambodian immigrants.

“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” Heng says in a voiceover as the picture of Ocasio-Cortez burns. “Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?”

Watch the full 30 second ad below:

Naturally, AOC’s default response was the play the race card:

The next day, the self-described “democratic socialist” continued to play the race card against Heng – who is not white:

Not only is Heng the daughter of Cambodian immigrants (which kinda disqualifies her from the white supremacy club), but the ad was paid for by Heng’s PAC, not any elected GOP official.

But AOC wasn’t done. Next on her list of people or things to sic her digital lynch mob on was Sinclair Broadcasting:

Ocasio-Cortez’s meltdown was largely responsible for the #BoycottABC hashtag that has trended on Twitter today.

If the leader of the so-called “Squad” thought her Twitter rant was going to get Heng to back down, she was wrong:

Later, Heng made it clear to AOC that facts don’t care about your feelings:

I’m sure it’s not lost on the many people reading this who have kept up with Ocasio-Cortez’s frequent unhinged rants against her critics that she is the last person in this country who should be complaining about making provocative comparisons to evil regimes. To this day, the woman who compared detention centers for illegal immigrants to concentration camps still believes what the United States is doing at the southern border is no different than what took place in Nazi Germany.

Beyond the bogus accusations of racism and white supremacy, what the freshman Democratic Congressman willfully ignored was the real point behind the ad:

My question is: How long will it be before Facebook and Twitter pull Heng’s video? They did it to her before when she ran for Congress last year in what Red State’s streiff speculated was more about “interfer[ing] in a federal election campaign” than a benign attempt to shield Facebook users from sensitive imagery.

Stay tuned:

Video: Pelosi Gives Bizarre Hot Take on NC-9 Bellwether Race, Says Dem Who Lost Election “Won the Campaign”

After Republican State Senator Dan Bishop won Tuesday night’s hotly contested special election for North Carolina’s 9th congressional district, the spin from the mainstream media and Democrats was both predictable and hilarious.

The race had been billed as a bellwether race for 2020 for months in advance of election day. If Democrat Dan McCready won, it would be a repudiation of President Trump. If Bishop won, it would … mean nothing.

In the aftermath of Bishop’s victory, journalists and liberal commentators switched gears by saying the race contained a mixture of good news and bad news “for both sides.” Also, they asserted Bishop’s win was also a repudiation of Trump or something because the Republican candidate didn’t win the solidly red district by overwhelming numbers.

Like I said: Predictable and hilarious.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) gave what was perhaps the most bizarre spin on what happened when she spoke about McCready’s loss on Thursday, telling reporters McCready “won the campaign” but lost the election:

“I’m very proud of Dan MCready. He’s a great patriot, he’s an independent voice for the district he would have represented,” Pelosi said in press conference on Thursday.

The California Democrat said because MCready performed better than past Democratic candidates in previous elections, “he won the campaign. He didn’t win the election, he won the campaign.”

Watch:

As Bonchie noted the day after the election, the election was actually not good news at all for Democrats.

I speak from firsthand experience when I tell you the atmosphere in this state, in the district, was that McCready was going to win in spite of polls showing a close race. Bishop was the underdog. He was outspent. He had much less time to campaign for the seat than McCready. Bishop was hammered by Democrats and local (liberal) newspaper editorial boards for his support of Trump.

Democrats were mad as hell over the tainted results of the November 2018 race that led to fraud indictments against an ABM ballot harvester affiliated with the original Republican candidate Mark Harris. There was a lot going against Bishop, even in a district that had been in Republican hands since the mid-60s.

He won it anyway, and in the process flipped two counties that had gone for McCready in 2018.

This election does not mean that 2020 will be a cakewalk by any stretch for Republicans in 2020. It means there is a lot of work to be done between now and then in Congressional districts across the country. The fight is on.

But spinning McCready’s loss as a “campaign win” is about as pathetic as it gets for Pelosi. Stacey Abrams must be proud.

Via Twitchy I learned of a new book coming out October 1st that is titled The ABCs of AOC.

On Amazon, the book is billed as “an inspiring, educational, and giftable book about the representative taking Congress–and the media–by storm”:

This empowering and informative book is the perfect conversation starter for young people interested in government and activism, and the ultimate gift for anyone who wants to learn more about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Joy Behar Hopes Elizabeth Warren Puts Bernie in a Headlock During the Debate, and We May All Be Deported

Westlake Legal Group boxing-ring-149840_1280-620x381 Joy Behar Hopes Elizabeth Warren Puts Bernie in a Headlock During the Debate, and We May All Be Deported Uncategorized The View Television Politics joy behar Joe Biden Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Elizabeth Warren elections democrats debate Congress Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020

 

 

Joy Behar’s jonesin’ for some solid gold entertainment during Thursday night’s Democratic debate in Houston.

Amid discussion on The View, the outspoken lady made quite a statement involving everyone’s favorite rich uncle, Bernie Sanders, who Joy’s previously complimented as “cute.”

The host’s also apparently a bit of a WWE fan; who knew?

As reported by Fox, Behar’s ready to rumble:

“It’s getting a little boring to me. I would like to see Elizabeth Warren put Bernie [Sanders] in a headlock. I really would enjoy that.”

Thursday will be the first face-off between the two, so anything goes.

My personal prediction: Everyone will make fools of themselves trying to one-up each with increasingly absurd positions.

I believe I gave an example of this previously… Oh, yeah — yeah, I did. Here we go:

In the skirmish, we’re sure to see what will appear as goofballs making more and more absurd statements about illegal immigration, given the Dem platform going the way of no borders to the United States of America.

Buckle up for buffoonery.

“Illegal immigrants are good.” “What?! They’re GREAT!” “I think illegal immigrants are the best!” “They’re what America wants!” “Wants?! No, needs!” “They’re better than Oreos!” “No, they’re better than double-stuffed Oreos!” “How dare you?! They’re better than 500 double-stuffed Oreos!” “They’re better than a million-gajillion triple-stuffed Oreos!”

I can’t fully express my disappointment to have grown up only to find that adults’ behavior is far, far, far more stupid than I could’ve ever imagined.

But Joy doesn’t want that. She made it surprisingly clear:

“I love Elizabeth Warren very much and I think she would make a really good president, but I don’t believe…this country would vote for her because of two things. Number one: She believes in Medicare-for-all without private insurance and — I’ve said before — American’s don’t like you to take anything away from them. We like having that. … She needs to take that out and say, ‘Well, you can have it if you want.’

“Democrats want legal immigration. They want people to come in legally — the way we’ve done since this country began. … And I think that those things need to be clear. Otherwise, Elizabeth is not going to capture the heart of the heartland.”

Wow. I believe she’s right.

Pocahontas has been catching up with frontrunner Joe Biden. She’s got a shot tonight to take the lead.

But she may be tempted to give in to my Oreo scenario above — Joe’s comin’ out with his woke guns blazin’: Just a couple weeks ago, he claimed illegal immigrants are even more American than many Americans (here).

Therefore, what we may hear tonight:

“Illegal immigrants are more American than all Americans.”

“Illegal immigrants are more American than George Washington.”

“Only citizens of Mexico should be declared American.”

Fasten that seatbelt, my fellow non-countrymen.

Alyssa Milano’s trajectory is certainly an unusual one.

The television actress appears to have, for some reason, elected herself as a governmental leader.

Beyond that, she’s my personal heartbreak: What began with polite expressions of political views has evolved into rude shouts from someone who appears to have a punishingly extreme messiah complex.

And her method’s a surprise as well: I’d assume an actress wanting to transform into a very loud voice telling the world how it’s supposed be would first learn things — research the issues tirelessly, which is to say, research all sides and talk to all different people and understand them.

Rather, she appears to have taken the approach of, “What do Democrats say? Okay, I’ll just go around saying that.”

Instead of broadening her horizons, she comes across as a Hollywood Democrat who’s confined herself to that box, with no concept of the rest of the world, of those who think differently, of other ideas or the reasons for them. Or, to a degree, even the existence of those people and things.

Apropos, here are a few moves by my long lost Samantha Micelli, who appears to believe the feds have banned immigrants:

On Tuesday, the Who’s the Boss star got together with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz following a tweeted challenge between the two. The purpose: to discuss gun control.

At the meet-up, Alyssa explained herself to Ted:

“I’m a mom, I have two children. You’re a dad…I look at my children and want to give them everything, all the greatest possibilities. I look at my children and I’m terrified. I don’t know how to keep my children safe, and it’s terrifying. And I think parents across the country feel this way.”

Of course, a way that won’t keep her children safe is to prevent innocent people (including her) from defending themselves.

Here’s what Milano had to say right after their conversation:

She followed with this:

So did the meeting change anything? Well, no — a congressman meeting with an actress doesn’t change anything, ’cause it’s a congressman meeting with an actress.

But for Alyssa, perhaps the meeting was monumental. Given many of the things she’s said — in interviews, in public, and on social media — she may have never met anyone outside a Dentyne-sized bubble.

For more on that, consider this actual quote from her during the Ted talk:

“Your stance has made you almost like this caricature of a villain, and that’s why this meeting was so important for me, because I wanted to look at you in the eye and know that you’re really a human with a heartbeat.”

Ted won election to the Senate. Twice. And he was next in line — behind Trump — to snag the Republican nomination last time around. Yet, in Alyssa’s mind, she’s the regular one, and he’s this mystical creature people imagine as unreal.

So there’s that.

Report: the DNC Launched an Initiative to Infiltrate Talk Radio. Are Their Instructions Still Being Followed?

What the heck?

According to a new report, prior to the 1996 election — via which Bill Clinton faced a dubious 2nd term — the Democratic Party hatched a plan to inundate conservative talk radio show with callers who were sneakily in fact left-wingers. The mission? To push Democrat talking points.

Evidence of the Talk Radio Initiative was discovered within documents at the Clinton Presidential Library, as noted by The Washington Free Beacon.

According to the article, the effort was launched in light of the tremendous GOP victory of the 1994 midterms — for the first time since 1954, Republicans ruled the House.

In an internal report from the time, the DNC laid it out:

Democrats have largely ignored talk radio, and only since the last election, have we paid attention to how we can win back the airwaves and the discussion. We have now put our frustration into action.

So their idea was to convert hardcore conservative radio listeners with liberal ideas?

Yep. From the Free Beacon:

[W]ith the blessing of the Clinton White House, launched the Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) ahead of the 1996 campaign. The program trained thousands of operatives to call in to radio shows, conduct surveillance of their contents, and secretly disseminate Democratic talking points while posing as ordinary listeners.

Interesting plan.

Michigan Democrats prepared a guide; here’s a sample:

Volunteers must be able to keep the project confidential so as not to create the image of a “Democratic conspiracy” to infiltrate Detroit area talk radio shows. Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative.

So how’d they do?:

Radio show hosts long suspected that someone was training so-called “seminar callers” to inundate their shows with sympathetic callers. Lars Larson, a host in the Pacific Northwest since the mid-1990s, recalled being on the receiving end of many such calls, but was not aware that many may have been trained by the DNC.

“You would get calls, an hour apart, from different people with different voices and different names, but they would talk the same lines. So close that you knew that this was not a coincidence,” Larson said. “It was the same language on the same subject and the same arguments.”

Great jobs, ya stealthy spies.

It’s a real shame — Wolverine State Dems spelled out how to evade capture:

If you are afraid that producers are beginning to recognize your name and are weary of allowing you on the air, use an alias. For example, be Carol today, Sue tomorrow, and Debbie on Friday!

Genius!

According to the Free Beacon’s research, 23 states were involved in the mission, with 4,000 operatives on the ball.

Furthermore:

The records also revealed that the Clinton administration consistently kept tabs on and coordinated with TRI, considering it a crucial pillar of the administration’s plan to neutralize conservative radio in preparation for the 1996 election.

As per the report, at the 1996 Democratic Convention, TRI set up three-hour training sessions for the agents.

Rush Limbaugh responded to news of the initiative Tuesday; check that out here.

So did the project ever officially end?

The DNC-published instructions advised a novel approach:

Sound dumb. Even though you may have indicated a difference of opinion with the host, appear to present an opportunity for him to demolish you with his “superior” intelligence.

Some might suspect the same instructions are still being doled out.
