Tucker Carlson: Schiff got Trump-Russia collusion all wrong, never got punished. Instead, he’s being rewarded

Here’s where we are. Tens of thousands of Americans continue to die in their prime from drug ODs. The middle class is still shrinking. Housing prices in our cities are crushing an entire generation of ambitious young people. China’s economy is about to overtake ours.

TRUMP CAMPAIGN MOCKS SCHIFF AS ‘SCHIFF T. COYOTE’ IN LOONEY TUNES-STYLE CARTOON

So that’s all the bad news right there. But have no fear. Here’s the good news: Washington is on it. Your representatives in the capital city — this city, Washington, D.C. — just spent their third day in a row yelling at each other about a phone call Donald Trump once made to some guy in Ukraine.

In other words, the impeachment trial of President Trump rolls on and if nothing else, that means that amateur thespian and full-time congressman, Adam Schiff, gets to try out new parts for the camera.

On Wednesday, you’ll remember, Schiff played the role of wartime general rallying the country in the face of an imminent military invasion. “The Russians are coming!” he squeaked. “The Russians are coming!”

Rep Adam Schiff, D-Calif, Trump impeachment manager: As one witness put it during our impeachment Inquiry, the United States aid Ukraine and her people so that we can fight Russia over there and we don’t have to fight Russia here.

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. We could soon fight the Russians here in St. Johnsbury, not St. Petersburg. Stock up on milk.

Well, on Thursday, in a reprise of that performance, Schiff revived the character you just saw, but with a theological dimension: wartime general plus Old Testament prophet. George Patton meets Jeremiah. Suddenly, Adam Schiff, that hero to secular America, was dropping references to God like the two were old friends.

Schiff: Thank God, Putin said. Thank God nobody is accusing us anymore of interfering in U.S. elections. Now, they’re accusing Ukraine. Thank God, Putin says.

I don’t think we really want Vladimir Putin, our adversary to be thanking God for the president of the United States because they don’t wish us well.

We do not want them thanking God for our president and what he is pushing out. We don’t want them thanking God for withholding money from our ally.

Now, say what you will, but as a piece of theatre, it had literally everything. There was dastardly old Vladimir Putin rubbing his hands together in diabolical glee somewhere deep beneath the Kremlin. “Those foolish Americans! Little do they know, my troops will be in Phoenix by nightfall!”

On the other side, God Himself in heaven, looking down in sadness, hoping this lost nation will finally heed St. Adam’s prophetic warnings and obey.

It was the age-old battle of good versus evil playing out right there on the Senate floor on C-SPAN. Sen. Jim Risch of Idaho, though, was not impressed. He fell dead asleep the other day, and he probably wasn’t the only one to do it.

If it weren’t for the fact that most senators can nap with their eyes open, it would be clear that the whole chamber has been unconscious since Monday, and can you blame them for that? It’s interminable.

And yet, on cable news, it’s like Christmas. America’s newsrooms are maybe the last place in the English-speaking world where Adam Schiff is still considered impressive. To an average news anchor, Adam Schiff is not a bug- eyed hysteric. He is a statesman, Alexander Hamilton reborn. Get that man a musical.

Schiff seems happy, and why wouldn’t he be? He got it all completely wrong, but he wasn’t punished. Just the opposite. He was rewarded. That’s how Washington really works.

Wolf Blitzer, CNN anchor: A very, very powerful and forceful speech, almost two and a half hours by Adam Schiff. A very, very strong case.

Claire McCaskill, MSNBC political analyst and former U.S. senator: He is a really good lawyer. Period. End of discussion.

 John Avlon, CNN senior political analyst: And also, I thought, Schiff did an exceptionally good job connecting his case to the Founding Fathers.

Andrew Weissmann, MSNBC legal analyst: This is a speech really aimed at the better angels.

Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC host: By most accounts, it was a virtuoso performance that drew praise from all sides yesterday. It was a stunning recitation of the facts.

Blitzer: What did you think of the presentation by the lead House manager, Adam Schiff?

Jeffrey Toobin, CNN legal analyst: I thought it was dazzling.

“Dazzling, stunning, brilliant, powerful, forceful, masterful virtuoso” — whatever that means. Those are the words the press uses to describe a man who has just called for a hot war against a nuclear-armed nation.

Do the talking heads on CNN believe what Schiff is saying? Do they actually think Russia is on the cusp of invading the United States? Maybe they do, or likely they’re not really listening to him.

If the internal thoughts of your average news anchor were broadcast on the screen — and they should be — you’d see they revolve mostly around hair and makeup. “Do my ears look big?” These are not policy people. They don’t care about details. They just know for certain that Schiff is on their team, and that’s enough for them.

That’s something they had spent the last few years on, studiously pretending that Adam Schiff is a serious person and not a wild-eyed conspiracy nut. Now, to keep pretending that, they’ve had to ignore a lot of his actual claims, the things he is saying. Very much including these things:

Schiff: You can see evidence in plain sight on the issue of collusion, pretty compelling evidence.

And there is significant evidence of collusion.

There is ample evidence and indeed there is — of collusion of people in the Trump campaign with the Russians.

I think there’s plenty of evidence of collusion or conspiracy.

All of this is evidence of collusion.

More from Opinion

To Schiff, collusion was everywhere — on Facebook, on television, inside the box of Honey Bunches of Oats sitting in the breakfast nook in his airless Capitol Hill apartment. At one point, he even began to suspect his cats — his many cats.

Schiff spent the entirety of 2017 and 2018 talking just like that. By the end, he had accused 16 million Americans of colluding with Vladimir Putin simply by the act of voting for Donald Trump.

It was a conspiracy that profound. Except it wasn’t, and that’s the remarkable part. Schiff was wrong. None of this ever happened. And we now know that conclusively.

So is Schiff punished for this? Driven from polite society for falsely impugning the integrity of millions of Americans with lies, which he did? No, he wasn’t.

He just got more famous and more revered on MSNBC. You can find him most weekdays now having lunch in the best restaurants in the city right across from the guys who planned the Iraq War and got rich from securitizing subprime mortgages.

Schiff seems happy, and why wouldn’t he be? He got it all completely wrong, but he wasn’t punished. Just the opposite. He was rewarded.

That’s how Washington really works. Keep that in mind as you watch Adam Schiff strut around the Senate this week, playing whatever character he’s chosen that day.

This is the guy making the big decisions. This is the guy they admire.

Tucker Carlson: Republicans think a Trump victory in November is assured. Here’s why that’s a mistake

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6125086625001_6125084078001-vs Tucker Carlson: Republicans think a Trump victory in November is assured. Here's why that's a mistake

A year from now, we will be hosting this show from the National Mall as the next president of the United States takes the oath of office. Will that president be Donald Trump?

Well, as of now, Republicans in Washington feel confident that it will be. The official economic numbers are strong. The Democratic primaries are a freak show. Elderly socialists accusing each other of thought crimes.

TRUMP ADDRESSES WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM IN DAVOS, TOUTS TRADE DEALS, US ECONOMY

Republicans are starting to think that victory is assured —  and that’s a mistake.

America remains as divided as it was three years ago. So no matter what happens, nobody is going to win this election in a national landslide. Those don’t happen anymore.

Trump could lose. Will he lose? Well, that depends entirely on what he runs on.

In 2016, Donald Trump defeated more than a dozen Republicans and then Hillary Clinton by running as an insurgent, a man from outside the system flipping the bird to the elites within. Virtually everything Trump said reinforced that message.

The people who run this country are clueless. They have no idea what they’re doing. They don’t care about you. They’ve hollowed out our economy, crushed the middle class. They’ve screwed up our foreign policy. They left the door open on our southern border. They are children playing leadership and they’ve gotten rich doing it. The result is a national catastrophe.

Now, Trump’s campaign summed up that message in a single phrase, “Make America great again.” In other words, let’s not lie to ourselves — this is a disaster. The good news is, we can fix it.

Now, the people in charge hated to hear that, of course, because it implicated them. But voters responded; they knew it was true. By the way, it’s still true today. Things are a lot better, in a lot of ways, but they’re not fixed.

Consider the state of the economy. The big numbers — unemployment and inflation, to name two — tell one story, and it’s a good story.

The candidate who makes it easier for 30-year-olds to get married and have kids will win the election and will deserve to win. Remember that. It’s truer than any economic theory conceived on any college campus in the last hundred years.

But dig a little deeper. A Pew poll from this fall provides a glimpse of what is actually happening in a lot of parts of the country. In that survey, 56 percent of Americans said the economy was excellent or good, and that’s good news. But then there was this: Only 31 percent of the economy was helping them and their families. Just 32 percent thought the current economy was helping the middle class, 58 percent thought the opposite.

Among lower-income Republicans, 47 percent said economic conditions were hurting them; just 30 percent said they were helping. Now keep in mind, these aren’t sociology professors from the Oberlin faculty lounge. This is the president’s core, it’s his base.

Why do they feel that way? It’s not personal. It’s just really simple.

For a lot of middle class people, wages are not keeping pace with expenses. Child care, housing, education, health care — they’re all getting more expensive by the year. The student loan bubble is still inflating. It’s burdening young people with debts so large, they can’t start families.

Now, these are economic problems, but they require a political solution. The candidate who makes it easier for 30-year-olds to get married and have kids will win the election and will deserve to win. Remember that. It’s truer than any economic theory conceived on any college campus in the last hundred years.

Improve people’s lives, and they will vote for you. Period. Republicans ought to write that on our hands. Otherwise, the temptation will be to focus entirely on the lunacy on display on the left right now.

Democrats have gone crazy, and it’s definitely worth pointing that out repeatedly. We do it five nights a week. But it’s not enough to win. Winning candidates come with their own program. They convince voters they will make things better.

Bernie Sanders may get the Democratic nomination, and if he does, every Republican in Washington will spend the next 10 months reminding you that socialism does not work and never has worked. And they’ll be right, obviously.

But if Sanders pledges to forgive student loans, he will still win many thousands of voters who went for Donald Trump last time. Why? Because debt is crushing an entire generation of Americans. Republicans need to make a plan to make it better, or they will be left behind.

And one more piece of advice: Don’t ignore the social issues. The Republican establishment despises this conversation. If it’s not about tax rates, they don’t want to talk about it.

But normal people know the social fabric is coming apart. A winning candidate will say that out loud, defend traditional values. Don’t be embarrassed about it. There’s nothing embarrassing about it. Democrats are waging the most aggressive possible campaign against everything normal people think is virtuous.

More from Opinion

They are promising to undo our justice system, emptying our prisons, even as they undermine the police and strip you of your right to defend yourself. They’re openly inviting chaos.

They want to give the vote to convicted felons, even murderers. They’ve said that. They think so little of this country that they’re pledging to open our borders to the world. Every impoverished nation on Earth welcomed here for free health care paid for by you.

They’re opposed to free speech. They’re stridently for subsidized abortion up to the moment of birth. They want Americans sorted into creepy little categories by their DNA, judged, rewarded, punished on the basis of their sex and skin color.

They don’t simply deny the existence of biological sex. They’re trying to force you to deny it, too. You’ll be fired if you disagree or have your kids taken from you. Democrats aren’t promising change. They are promising revolution. Centuries of American history and custom, abolished. A nation starting over from scratch, year zero. That’s effectively what they’re calling for, and most people are not for that.

They may be frustrated with the state of the country — many are. They may be anxious about the future. But they don’t hate America. They don’t want to topple George Washington and implement Maoism.

They are conservative in the most basic sense. They love their families, above all. They distrust radical theories of anything because they know — and they’re right — that when the world turns upside down, ordinary people get hurt.

They don’t want to burn it down, they just want things to get better. The candidate who promises to make them better, incrementally, but tangibly, will be inaugurated president a year from now.

Steve Hilton: The impeachment is a joke and shows the difference between Trump’s results and Democrats’ stunts

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6124832208001_6124827192001-vs Steve Hilton: The impeachment is a joke and shows the difference between Trump's results and Democrats' stunts Steve Hilton fox-news/shows/the-next-revolution fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 54c0f2d4-d2fd-5030-9ebc-6eeef04bcf1c

On Wednesday, the day after Democrats’ debate in Iowa, we saw what has to be one of the most stunning political contrast of all time.

TRUMP IMMIGRATION POLICIES SHOWING RESULTS, WITH ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSINGS PLUMMETING

As I was watching, I put out this tweet, President Trump signing a historic trade deal while Nancy Pelosi was yucking it up with her pathetic impeachment pens. In my usual measured way, I called her a “divisive, spiteful, hate-filled charlatan.”

And in case you think that was over the top, look at what she actually said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.: He has been impeached. He’s been impeached forever. They can never erase that.

“Impeached forever.” There’s the contrast. Pelosi’s stunts versus Trump results. Americans can see what’s going on. Look what happened when the president and first lady entered the stadium for the CFP National Championship game last week. They entered to thunderous cheers from the crowd.

It was the sound of Americans who are proud of their president because of what he is doing for their country. Proud of the Soleimani strike, the first time Iran’s murderous regime has been seriously confronted by America for 40 years.

Proud of the China tariffs, too — the first time any Western leader has stood up to them. This week, they signed a phase one trade deal over $30 billion in U.S. agricultural exports, more than $50 billion for energy, over $70 billion for manufacturing. Even more important, finally, protection for our company’s intellectual property and a pledge from China to stop the competitive devaluations that previously gave them an unfair trade advantage.

This week, the president will sign the USMCA, just passed by the Senate, which affects 40 percent of our trade. Our farmers will now be able to sell more dairy products to Canada. American patents and trademarks will be better protected. And above all, the USMCA is fantastic news for our auto workers, with new rules to prevent them from being undercut by cheap foreign labor. It is the most pro-worker trade deal in history, a massive boost for our economy, which will create hundreds of thousands of new jobs.

Then on infrastructure, a huge move the other week that barely got covered. The Trump administration is sweeping away the bureaucracy that’s led to nonsense, like a 12-mile expansion of Interstate 70 in Denver taking 13 years to build.

These reforms will speed up the construction of new roads everywhere, a vital move for working Americans because infrastructure boosts productivity, and more productive workers get paid more. It comes on top of steps the administration has already taken to help build pipelines across the country. That’s helped us become a net oil exporter, which in turn gives us a free hand in the Middle East.

Yes, there’s a strategy here, people, and it’s working. You see the same on immigration. The number of border apprehensions fell in December, for the seventh straight month, thanks to a coherent set of actions, including the new wait-in-Mexico policy for asylum seekers.

And remember the president’s threat of tariffs on Mexico? The establishment freaked out. “You can’t do that,” they said. “That’s not how it works, using trade policy for an immigration objective.”

Well, it may have been unconventional, but it did work. Mexico sent troops to their border, and the numbers of low-wage immigrants plummeted. That’s helped boost jobs and earnings for the lowest-paid American workers, reversing decades of stagnation, another sign of a joined-up policy strategy that’s working.

Impeachment is not just a joke, but an insult to every American who has a right to expect that Congress, like the president, is spending its time getting real results for workers and families.

And all of that before the recent court victory on the border wall.

In his reelection ad, President Reagan famously said it is “morning in America.” Well, in this reelection year, we can say for sure that the sun is out and shining bright. Record high stock market. Lowest unemployment in 50 years — lowest in history for women, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans.

But those are just the well-known results. Look deeper. There’s been more wage growth in almost every age group as Americans benefit from a pro-growth, pro-enterprise policy agenda.

Politicians go on and on about the middle class. But look at the actual results: Between 2016 and 2018, the number of taxpayers making between $100,000 and $200,000 grew by 8 percent, while those making less than $25,000 fell by 5 percent.

Why is this happening? In part because of the Trump policy strategy is different from anything we’ve seen before. He is taking traditional conservative ideas and combining them with new populist ones, appointing conservative judges and criminal justice reform, tax cuts and paid family leave. Pro-business on regulations and pro-worker on trade and immigration, building up our military, and standing up to China.

But there’s a personal aspect to this, too, which I recognize from my experience. Unlike other TV hosts, I’ve run companies and worked in government. And so I know how hard it is to make change happen.

Last week, I said Trump was different because he is not ideological, he’s pragmatic. He’s a problem-solving businessman.

More from Opinion

You saw that on display at the signing of that China trade deal. Now, this may seem like a small example, but it illustrates a big point. The president mentioned how there hadn’t been July 4th fireworks at Mount Rushmore for decades.

Donald Trump, president of the United States: I said you mean you can’t have fireworks because of the environment? Yes, environmental reasons. I said, what can burn? It’s stone. You know, it’s stone.

So nobody knew why. They just said “environmental reasons.” So I called up our people, and within about 15 minutes, we got it approved, and you’re going to have your first big fireworks display at Mount Rushmore, and I’ll try and get out there if I can.

You see, most politicians would just accept the established line, “Sorry, you cannot do that.” It’s a totally different mindset when you put an outsider in the Oval Office. That mindset is what’s delivering results on deregulation, immigration, and the border, trade, and all the rest of it.

Here’s another key point: This president loves business. I’ve never seen any politician call out such a long list of companies to praise like President Trump did last week. Here is just a brief example.

Trump: David Abney of UPS. UPS is doing very well.

Darius Adamczyk of Honeywell — great company.

Al Kelly, Visa. Al Kelly. Al Kelly, thank you.

Nancy Falotico of Ford.

Sanjay Mehrotra of Micron — incredible company.

Jim Morrison of Jeep. What a great brand Jeep is. What a job they’ve done. That is a great brand.

That attitude is how the president and Ivanka Trump have helped create 14 million new training places by working with the private sector instead of doing it through government bureaucracy.

Critics say the president just wants yes people around him. But look at how he built his China team, starting with his ambassador, former Iowa governor, Terry Branstad.

Trump: And I was going in to make a speech before the election. And he said, “Sir, please don’t say anything bad about China.” It’s the first time anyone ever said that to me.

And I said, “Who is this guy?” He’s the governor of Iowa. He just said don’t say bad about China. So I had a rip up about half of my speech, right? And I said, “Why?” He said, “Well, we do a lot of business.”

Hey, man, I think I can go on the opposite side of the spectrum, perhaps from the governor. His attitude is a little different. Our trade adviser, Peter Navarro. Right, Peter? He’s a little different.

We have all types.

All of this is why he is delivering and why impeachment is not just a joke, but an insult to every American who has a right to expect that Congress, like the president, is spending its time getting real results for workers and families.

Of course, you can forget about that from today’s decadent Democrats. But the best thing the president can do is to focus on policy, on results. So we continue to see that contrast between Trump results and Democrat stunts.

Steve Hilton: Trump faces impeachment because Democrats know he’s a success — and they can’t stand it

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6114133462001_6114140356001-vs Steve Hilton: Trump faces impeachment because Democrats know he's a success -- and they can't stand it Steve Hilton fox-news/shows/the-next-revolution fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc ed6213a5-bebc-5ce0-a092-768df46291a5 article

Democrats’ hate-driven attempt to overturn the 2016 election through non-democratic means comes from their fear that none of their presidential candidates are strong enough to beat President Trump in 2020.

One line last week in the impeachment inquiry hearing before the House Judiciary Committee gave the whole game away. It came right at the start of those hours of snooty, snarky, partisan screeching by the Democrats’ legal stooges.

NUNES BLASTS SCHIFF FOR ‘BLATANT DISREGARD’ OF IMPEACHMENT RULES; BLAMES ‘VENDETTA’ AGAINST TRUMP

Noah Feldman, Harvard law professor: Let me begin by stating my conclusions.

That is this whole farce in a nutshell! The Democrats started with their conclusions, all the way back to Trump’s inauguration in January 2017 — before Ukraine, before Mueller, before anything. They wanted Trump impeached.

So let’s translate into the truth Nancy Pelosi’s utterly disingenuous impeachment announcement last week.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House: Sadly but with confidence and humility.

“Sadly?” What, like Maxine Waters leading chants of “Impeach 45!”? Or Rashida Tlaib telling supporters, “We’re going to impeach the mother——“?

Yeah, they’re real sad about it. So sad. Perhaps we should get them some counseling.

They’ve been dying to do this for three years. It’s obvious they hate Trump and it’s obvious they’re loving this. But they know how wrong and divisive it is. So they have to pretend to be sad.

These people are so cynical.

Every single thing the Democrats accuse President Trump of — undermining democracy, ignoring the rule of law, abusing power — they are guilty of themselves.

And then how about this?

Pelosi: The facts are uncontested.

We’ve literally had weeks of the facts being contested. You can agree or disagree with the arguments on either side, but to say the facts are uncontested is truly Orwellian doublespeak.

Equally offensive is how they shamelessly plunder the Constitution to justify their petty partisan scheme.

Pelosi: James Madison, the architect of the Constitution, warned that a president might betray his trust to foreign powers, which might prove fatal to the republic. Another Founder, Gouverneur Morris, feared that the president may be bribed by a greater interest to betray his trust.

Bribed? In these entire proceedings, not a single witness has suggested for a single second that anyone bribed the president to do anything. But because the focus groups say “bribery” is the word to use, the idiotic Democrats just say it anyway.

Here’s another term they trot out with utter vacuity.

Pelosi: In America, no one is above the law.

More from Opinion

Oh. Apart from, let’s see, Democratic presidential candidates who were previously vice president, whose children profited corruptly from their government role. That must never be investigated.

Let’s just clarify the Pelosi doctrine, shall we? No one is above the law except Joe Biden.

And here’s Pelosi’s whole case in a nutshell.

Pelosi: The president has engaged in abuse of power, undermining our national security, and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections.

She says Trump undermined America’s national security by withholding military aid to Ukraine in the middle of a hot war with Russia. So terrible for our national security. I mean, only a monster like Trump would do that.

Or maybe also President Obama, who did exactly the same thing. Not a peep out of Pelosi back then about national security.

She says Trump has jeopardized the integrity of our elections. Let’s see. Trump wants to find out if Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election, if U.S. government policy was affected by the fact that when Vice President Biden was in charge of Ukraine policy, his son was being paid by Ukrainian gas company.

And it’s Pelosi who says she and her Democrat cronies should choose the next president, not you, the voters. Trump is the one jeopardizing our elections? Every single thing the Democrats accuse President Trump of — undermining democracy, ignoring the rule of law, abusing power — they are guilty of themselves.

Any reasonable person can see that on policy results, on the substance — on facts — this is one of the most successful presidencies in history, and the establishment can’t stand it. They were certain Trump would be a disaster. It’s because he’s a success that they’re impeaching him.

Steve Hilton: Trump faces impeachment because Democrats know he’s a success — and they can’t stand it

Democrats’ hate-driven attempt to overturn the 2016 election through non-democratic means comes from their fear that none of their presidential candidates are strong enough to beat President Trump in 2020.

One line last week in the impeachment inquiry hearing before the House Judiciary Committee gave the whole game away. It came right at the start of those hours of snooty, snarky, partisan screeching by the Democrats’ legal stooges.

NUNES BLASTS SCHIFF FOR ‘BLATANT DISREGARD’ OF IMPEACHMENT RULES; BLAMES ‘VENDETTA’ AGAINST TRUMP

Noah Feldman, Harvard law professor: Let me begin by stating my conclusions.

That is this whole farce in a nutshell! The Democrats started with their conclusions, all the way back to Trump’s inauguration in January 2017 — before Ukraine, before Mueller, before anything. They wanted Trump impeached.

So let’s translate into the truth Nancy Pelosi’s utterly disingenuous impeachment announcement last week.

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House: Sadly but with confidence and humility.

“Sadly?” What, like Maxine Waters leading chants of “Impeach 45!”? Or Rashida Tlaib telling supporters, “We’re going to impeach the mother——“?

Yeah, they’re real sad about it. So sad. Perhaps we should get them some counseling.

They’ve been dying to do this for three years. It’s obvious they hate Trump and it’s obvious they’re loving this. But they know how wrong and divisive it is. So they have to pretend to be sad.

These people are so cynical.

Every single thing the Democrats accuse President Trump of — undermining democracy, ignoring the rule of law, abusing power — they are guilty of themselves.

And then how about this?

Pelosi: The facts are uncontested.

We’ve literally had weeks of the facts being contested. You can agree or disagree with the arguments on either side, but to say the facts are uncontested is truly Orwellian doublespeak.

Equally offensive is how they shamelessly plunder the Constitution to justify their petty partisan scheme.

Pelosi: James Madison, the architect of the Constitution, warned that a president might betray his trust to foreign powers, which might prove fatal to the republic. Another Founder, Gouverneur Morris, feared that the president may be bribed by a greater interest to betray his trust.

Bribed? In these entire proceedings, not a single witness has suggested for a single second that anyone bribed the president to do anything. But because the focus groups say “bribery” is the word to use, the idiotic Democrats just say it anyway.

Here’s another term they trot out with utter vacuity.

Pelosi: In America, no one is above the law.

More from Opinion

Oh. Apart from, let’s see, Democratic presidential candidates who were previously vice president, whose children profited corruptly from their government role. That must never be investigated.

Let’s just clarify the Pelosi doctrine, shall we? No one is above the law except Joe Biden.

And here’s Pelosi’s whole case in a nutshell.

Pelosi: The president has engaged in abuse of power, undermining our national security, and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections.

She says Trump undermined America’s national security by withholding military aid to Ukraine in the middle of a hot war with Russia. So terrible for our national security. I mean, only a monster like Trump would do that.

Or maybe also President Obama, who did exactly the same thing. Not a peep out of Pelosi back then about national security.

She says Trump has jeopardized the integrity of our elections. Let’s see. Trump wants to find out if Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election, if U.S. government policy was affected by the fact that when Vice President Biden was in charge of Ukraine policy, his son was being paid by Ukrainian gas company.

And it’s Pelosi who says she and her Democrat cronies should choose the next president, not you, the voters. Trump is the one jeopardizing our elections? Every single thing the Democrats accuse President Trump of — undermining democracy, ignoring the rule of law, abusing power — they are guilty of themselves.

Any reasonable person can see that on policy results, on the substance — on facts — this is one of the most successful presidencies in history, and the establishment can’t stand it. They were certain Trump would be a disaster. It’s because he’s a success that they’re impeaching him.

Trump names Secret Service official Anthony Ornato as new deputy chief of staff for operations

Westlake Legal Group dc2517c1-Trump-Speech Trump names Secret Service official Anthony Ornato as new deputy chief of staff for operations Morgan Phillips fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc d1570fd6-7a54-5c97-856d-4e1856ffcdc5 article

President Trump named U.S. Secret Service Deputy Assistant Director Anthony Ornato as his new Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations on Saturday.

“I have worked with Tony for 3 years – he will do a fantastic job!,” the president tweeted. “Thank you to Dan Walsh for his great service, and congratulations to Tony!”

While serving as Special Agent in Charge, Ornato accompanied the president to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in North Korea to meet with the country’s leader Kim Jong Un in June. False reports had circulated that Trump walked into North Korea without Secret Service protection.

RUTH BADER GINSBURG TEMPORARILY BLOCKS RELEASE OF TRUMP’S FINANCIAL RECORDS

The White House said last month that Walsh would leave the office of operations, which plans foreign trips for the Trump administration and allocates resources for White House aides.

The role is one of three White House Deputy Chief of Staff positions and serves just under the White House Chief of Staff. The other two positions are Principal Deputy Chief of Staff, a role filled by Emma Doyle, and Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Coordination, currently Chris Liddell.

Walsh was one of the few current White House officials who had served the Trump administration since its inception; he had been a government employee for nearly three decades. Walsh has now accepted a job in the private sector, according to The Washington Post.

NATO leaders mocking Trump in video proof America ‘cannot be trusted’ by allies, Cory Booker says

Sen. Cory Booker said Wednesday the now-infamous video of world leaders appearing to laugh at the expense of President Trump at a NATO event on London is proof America “cannot be trusted” by its allies.

The New Jersey Democrat  was on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when he criticized Trump for calling Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “two-faced.”

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

“On the world stage, [Trump] just insulted, called the leader of Canada, our most essential ally who has been there with us in every conflict since 9/11, standing in partnership with us in so many ways, to just throw out a school-yard taunt, or punch, like that… [it] stunned me,” Booker said.

Sen. Cory Booker said the video of world leaders appearing to laugh at the expense of President Trump is proof American “cannot be trusted” by its allies.

“Morning Joe” co-host Willie Geist then said Trump’s “two-faced” remark was in response to the viral video of Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron and others appearing to laugh at Trump during a Buckingham Palace discussion on Tuesday.

“It appears that they’re making fun of President Trump,” Geist said. “Put that together with the way we’ve seen some of these leaders push back on President Trump at this NATO summit. What picture does it paint of where we are in the world right now?”

Booker, who’s running for president, responded, “America, right now, cannot be trusted.”

“Our allies no longer trust us. It is weakening the fabric of democracies at a time when the planet Earth is seeing the rise of totalitarianism or authoritarian government,” he said. “This president seems to be weakening western and democratic alliances.”

Booker added, “Republicans know this… they know what’s going on.”

Geist didn’t ask a follow-up question and host Joe Scarborough quickly asked about Sen. Kamala Harris D-Calif, dropping out of the 2020 presidential race.

The news-making video of some of the world’s most powerful leaders appearing to poke fun at Trump was shared by the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC). When Trump was asked about it during a bilateral meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, he said of Trudeau, “He’s two-faced.”

Trudeau appeared to be at the center of the video joking about Trump’s impromptu press conference on Tuesday.

Appeals court rules banks must comply with subpoena for Trump financial records

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6111974518001_6111975665001-vs Appeals court rules banks must comply with subpoena for Trump financial records Ronn Blitzer fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 8ee8a1f2-21f2-51ae-aed1-6e3c6ec7714c

A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld a decision allowing congressional committees to subpoena financial records pertaining to President Trump, his children, the Trump Organization and other entities.

The ruling from the Second Circuit Court of appeals calls for the subpoenas issued to Deutsche Bank AG and Capitol One Financial Corporation from the House Intelligence and Financial Services Committees to be enforced, which would allow the committees to obtain the records.

The documents may not include the president’s personal tax returns, as Deutsche Bank claimed they do not have them. The Capitol One subpoena does not list individuals by name but allows for seeking records of the entities’ principals, directors, officers, or shareholders.

TRUMP ASKING SUPREME COURT TO BLOCK SUBPOENA FOR HIS TAX RETURNS

“The mandate shall issue forthwith, but compliance with the three subpoenas and the procedure to be implemented on remand is stayed for seven days to afford Appellants an opportunity to apply to the Supreme Court or a Justice thereof for an extension of the stay,” ruled Judge Jon O. Newman, anticipating that Trump will fight the ruling.

This is the very route that other cases involving Trump’s financial records have taken. Other circuit court decisions centered on subpoenas for records that do include Trump’s tax returns were immediately challenged, with the president applying for stays from the Supreme Court, which were granted as the justices determine whether or not to hear the cases.

Those cases involved subpoenas issued to accounting firm Mazars USA, ordering them to turn over Trump’s tax returns. One stemmed from action from the Democratic-led House Oversight Committee and another from an investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney.

The Supreme Court granted temporary stays on the subpoenas in both of those cases but have yet to issue decisions on how they will proceed.

Tucker Carlson: Democrats have lost the Trump impeachment war. Even Adam Schiff knows it

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6108945057001_6108951390001-vs Tucker Carlson: Democrats have lost the Trump impeachment war. Even Adam Schiff knows it Tucker Carlson fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight/transcript/tuckers-monologue fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 7256fad5-7525-5d0a-9ead-6240288b3010

The Democrats have been talking about impeachment since the very day that President Trump was inaugurated. But until recently, no one here in Washington took that idea very seriously. Maxine Waters would rant about a trial. Then Pilates moms in Santa Monica would fantasize on Twitter about removing Trump by force.

But the adults in the party — Nancy Pelosi, for example, the House Speaker — opposed impeachment on the grounds that it was bad politics, and might boomerang on them.

HOUSE DEM NOW SEES NO ‘VALUE’ IN IMPEACHMENT, AS POLLS SHOW FALLING SUPPORT AMONG INDEPENDENTS

And then in what seemed like a day, everything changed completely. Suddenly, we had impeachment hearings playing out live in TV. Nobody explained why. Looking back, what exactly happened? Well, part of the answer is the Democrats were simply responding to their own cheerleaders on cable news.

Lawrence O’Donnell, host of “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” on MSNBC: If precedent means anything in the Trump era, Donald Trump will be, must be impeached.

Chris Matthews, host of “Hardball with Chris Matthews” on MSNBC: But if they don’t impeach, Democrats will abdicate a clear, constitutional chance to hold this president fully accountable.

Chris Todd, MSNBC host: The national nightmare is upon us. The basic rules of our democracy are under attack from the president. We begin tonight with a series of admissions by the president that all but assures his impeachment in the House of Representatives.

Nicolle Wallace, MSNBC host: I don’t understand why the fact that impeachment is polarizing is some sort — it makes them just as cowardly as the Republicans.

Eddie Glaude, Princeton University professor and MSNBC contributor: Absolutely. And to my mind, it also is an abdication of their constitutional responsibility.

Don Lemon, CNN host: Will there be any consequences for this president, who is continuing to defy the rule of law?

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

“The rule of law.” Hear that, Mr. and Mrs. America? It’s a national emergency! And if they don’t impeach, Democrats — listen carefully — Democrats will abdicate their solemn, constitutional responsibility. Democrats literally have no choice but to undo the 2016 election.

Yeah. That’s what the hair hats on TV, the men who wear makeup and yell at their assistants, were telling Democratic leaders night, after night, after night. And remarkably — and it is remarkable looking back — Democrats believed them.

So, what happened next? Let’s see. Have you read the new Vanity Fair? Sorry, rhetorical question. Nobody reads Vanity Fair anymore. It likely won’t exist by this time next year.

But before the title disappears forever, check out this month’s issue. There’s a fascinating piece by Ken Stern that assesses new polling on impeachment. Here’s the headline: Among independents, the only group that matters in an election, support for impeachment — impeaching Trump — has dropped by 10 points since the process started.

How to explain this? In political terms, this is the Andrea Doria, a routine cruise that suddenly becomes a disaster, a debacle. They spent two weeks telling you that Donald Trump is a criminal. And by the end, more people sympathized with Donald Trump.

How’d that happen? Take a close look at the numbers and it’s obvious how it happened. Independent voters were asked to rank 11 issues in order of their importance. First on the list was fiscal health. Seventy-four percent of independent voters said that the budget deficit was their main concern. Seventy-two percent said health care was the main concern. Seventy percent said infrastructure. Pretty conventional.

This is what happens when you let Jeff Zucker run your political party. You start to imagine that CNN’s primetime lineup somehow speaks for America, rather than for a tiny, out of touch little part of it.

Impeachment? That came in dead last, 11 out of 11. Only 37 percent of independents thought it was a priority — at all. By a margin of 3 to 1 — and this is hilarious — independents said that impeachment was more important to politicians and to the media than it was to them.

These are not subtle numbers. So, how did Democrats miss them? Well, because they only talk to each other. This is what happens when you let [CNN President] Jeff Zucker run your political party. You start to imagine that CNN’s prime time lineup somehow speaks for America, rather than for a tiny, out of touch little part of it.

Zucker tells you that impeachment is the only issue that matters. His unit agrees with him. And you believe them. Come fall, you lose the election.

In a moment like this, weirdly, it’s the non-politicians who seem to see things the most clearly. Here’s Andrew Yang after last week’s presidential debate.

Andrew Yang, 2020 presidential candidate: When I talked to voters around the country, well, I have to say, I get very, very few questions about impeachment. I know that there are people who are very intent on the impeachment proceedings day-to-day, but that doesn’t line up with what I’m hearing from voters here on the ground.

More from Opinion

Wolf Blitzer: So, would Democrats, you believe, be better off simply wrapping up this impeachment process sooner rather than later?

Yang: I do think that the more time that goes on, the less time the Democrats have to present a positive vision for the country that will get people excited and help us win in 2020.

Out in Santa Monica, the Pilates moms are looking at that and saying, “Andrew Yang? Did he just criticize impeachment? Is he a right-winger?! Is he a racist?! Is he telling us that voters want politicians to care more about their lives than they want politicians to extract symbolic, televised revenge on their political enemies?”

If you watch MSNBC, it’s hard to believe that that could be true. But that’s what Yang is claiming.

In the wake of those poll numbers we just read, other Democrats appear to be considering the same thing. Even Adam Schiff may be coming around.

Jake Tapper, CNN host: Do you think President Trump should be impeached?

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee: I want to discuss this with my constituents and my colleagues before I make a final judgment on it.

Tapper: And you’ve also said that what you’ve seen is, “far more serious than what Nixon did.” Explain to me how you have not come to the conclusion that the president should be impeached? I mean, it sounds like you think he should be impeached.

Schiff: Well, I certainly think that the evidence that’s been produced overwhelmingly shows serious misconduct by the president. But I do want to hear more from my constituents, and I want to hear more from my colleagues. This is not a decision I will be making alone.

Yeah. He’s not going to make the decision alone.

Just to make sure you got this clear: The man in charge of impeachment in the House, the member you just watched for two full weeks shepherding the impeachment hearings — the guy who cried on television just thinking about how much Donald Trump needed to be impeached right now — that guy isn’t really sure he’s for impeachment.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

You know, he needs to talk to his colleagues. He needs to hear more from his constituents. It’s a lot to think about. He’s going to prayerfully consider it over the holiday weekend, just alone. Just in some reflection. That’s Adam Schiff’s position now.

In other words, it’s over. Democrats lost.

Attorney General Barr accuses the left of systemic ‘sabotage’ of Trump administration

Westlake Legal Group barr Attorney General Barr accuses the left of systemic 'sabotage' of Trump administration Paulina Dedaj fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/person/william-barr fox news fnc/politics fnc fb1f43d0-f6ad-5a19-9be9-f3b5b60f4805 article

Attorney General Bill Barr accused congressional Democrats Friday of “using every tool” to “sabotage” the Trump administration by setting a “dangerous” precedent in implying that the government is illegitimate.

During a speech at the Federalist Society’s dinner in Washington, Barr took aim at the “resistance,” accusing liberal lawmakers of attacking the very foundations of the Constitution.

TRUMP PUSHES BACK ON REPORT BARR DENIED REQUEST FOR PRESS CONFERENCE CLEARING HIM ON UKRAINE 

“I deeply admire the American presidency as a political and constitutional institution,” he began. “Unfortunately over the past several decades, we have seen a steady encroachment on executive authority by the other branches of the government.”

Barr said the “avalanche of subpoenas” and constant attempt to derail appointments by the Trump administration have only served to “incapacitate” the executive branch.

“Immediately after President Trump won the election, opponents inaugurated what they called the ‘resistance’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch and his administration.”

“The cost of this constant harassment is real,” he continued.

Bar likened the language used by Trump’s opponents to that of groups who attempt to overthrow militant rule of seized governments.

YOVANOVITCH TESTIMONY OVERSHADOWED BY PARTISAN BRAWL OVER TRUMP TWEET

“Now resistance is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous and, indeed, incendiary notation to import into the politics of a democratic republic.”

He continued: “They essentially see themselves engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.”

Barr claimed that while Trump’s presidency falls outside the norm of previous administrations, he was elected with the public fully aware of this.

“The fact is, that, yes, while the president has certainly thrown out the traditional beltway playbook and punctilio, he was upfront about what he was going to do and the people decided that he was going to serve as president.”

Barr’s comments came on the same as Congress held a second public hearing in the House impeachment inquiry.
