Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi traveled to Greenville, SC on Friday for a Democratic fundraiser.

The local newspaper, Greenville News, reported, “Local Republicans have promoted efforts to protest Pelosi and Democrats’ impeachment efforts outside the event.”

The reality was actually quite impressive. Trump supporters lined the streets leading to the venue. They were carrying signs and banners and they all shouted “boo” as San Fran Nan drove by.

This rude welcome was merely a glimpse of the pushback she and the Democrats will face as they carry on with this national farce.

Did she really believe this would be easy?

Watch the video.

Trump Releases ‘Pinocchio’ Video Mocking Adam Schiff

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-05-at-11.45.00-AM Trump Releases ‘Pinocchio’ Video Mocking Adam Schiff whistleblower Ukraine Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Allow Media Exception adam schiff

Screenshot from this video.

President Donald Trump is not shy about using media to call out Democrats.

He showed that on Friday when he tweeted out a video, mocking Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for saying he had not spoken with the whistleblower and had no knowledge of the nature of the complaint while behind the scenes his staff did have contact and he himself had heard from the whistleblower about his concerns.

The video, which mocks Schiff as “Pinocchio,” was a take-off on the liberal Washington Post giving Schiff four Pinocchios, its highest rating for falsehoods. They called Schiff’s comments about not having contact with the whistleblower “flat-out false.”

The video does a good job of listing the very obvious conflicts between Schiff’s public remarks and what was going on behind the scenes.

From Daily Wire:

Schiff allegedly lied to the American public during the following exchange on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on September 17:

Sam Stein: “Have you heard from the whistleblower? Do you want to hear from the whistleblower? What protections could you provide to the whistleblower?” …

Schiff: “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to. But I am sure the whistleblower has concerns that he has not been advised, as the law requires, by the inspector general or the director of national Intelligence just how he is supposed to communicate with Congress, and so the risk to the whistleblower is retaliation.”

Schiff also publicly said on September 19 that they would not have even known about the complaint but for the ICIG releasing it, clearly trying to blame the administration and suggest they were withholding it from him and Congress. But, of course, he already knew about it, since it was a staffer from his committee who had referred the whistleblower to the ICIG and who said he advised Schiff. Additionally, Schiff had already received a letter from the whistleblower on August 12, detailing the concerns, containing an attachment (the complaint was dated Aug. 12) and no doubt signed by the whistleblower. Yet publicly, he never mentioned that in his September statements and, when asked about the identity of the person, claimed not to know who the whistleblower was, as the Trump video points out.

Schiff justifiably earned the ire of many when he fabricated quotes from the president during a live televised committee hearing about what was supposedly said in the Trump Ukraine phone call. He later claimed that the comments were “parody,” did not apologize for them and continued to falsely characterize the phone call in an interview with George Stephanopoulos.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) tweeted in response: “When you don’t have facts on your side some just make it up. The opening statement by their ring leader was #FullofSchiff. House Dems blatantly lying to justify their impeachment inquiry is horribly timed, poorly written and badly intentioned.”

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) tweeted in response: “It is disturbing and outrageous that Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff opens up a hearing of this importance with improvised fake dialogue between President Trump and President Zelensky. We should focus on the facts.”

Eating Babies, Unsexy Vegans, and Dumb Weddings: Are We Doomed?

Welcome back to my new column in which I take a look back at the week’s news and try to determine if we are, in fact, doomed.

Can’t Rule Out Eating Babies

An AOC event took a turn towards the doom this week when an audience member suggested we curb global warming by eating human babies.

While I understand that this woman is part of a bizarre political cult, the fact of the matter is that AOC didn’t bother to say “nah.” She said it was because she believed this woman to be “in crisis” and didn’t want to upset her. Maybe she’s in crisis because people keep telling her the world is about to end and we’re all going to die.

The only thing about this that made me think we’re not completely doomed is that it got “Jonathan Swift” trending.

VERDICT: Totally doomed

Unsexy Vegans Doing Unsexy  Things

Here’s what I know about this story. I know nothing else about it, I don’t want to know anything else about it, and I don’t need to know anything else about it.

VERDICT:  People who hurt animals are automatically doomed, and we are doomed for sharing an Earth with this man.  The only glimmer of hope is that everyone agrees this behavior is unacceptable.

The Worst Wedding Theme?

I realize I am old and boring, but it remains true that the only theme a wedding needs is “holy matrimony.” That doesn’t mean that the occasional theme is still fantastic (I’m going to a wedding in April 2020 that promises to be perfect), but most just detract from the point of what you’re there to do. That applies to novelty photos as well, which I’ve written about before.

For example, these joyless scolds could have just celebrated instead of being joyless scolds.

From what I understand, the bridesmaids put on these outfits, they took the picture, and then the whole thing was photoshopped to look like it was in front of “the hanging wall” where corporal punishment takes place during the story.

They were hoping the photo would go viral because people who think like this crave attention. I mean, because they longed for people to have deep and meaningful discussions.

Verdict: Mixed bag, actually. People need to stop acting like the Handmaid’s Tale is even close to happening, make weddings about marriage, and stop with the attention-seeking wedding photos. Then again, this photo was pretty widely mocked online. 50/50 doom here.

Hockey Continues To Be The Best Sport

You may recall 11 year-old Laila Anderson, a St Louis Blues superfan who is battling a life-threatening illness. She was with the team when they stunk, as  they rose, and they brought her to Boston for the final game when they won the Stanley Cup. Heck, they brought her on the ice with them to give it a kiss.

And now this.

VerdictNo doom in sight.

Holocaust Survivors Find Family

These Romanian octogenarians thought they’d lost their entire families in the Holocaust. Then they found each other, and the long-lost cousins were reunited.

Verdict: The internet did something good. We’re not doomed!

Loving Like Christ

The story of Botham Jean’s death is not one in which I expected to find anything beautiful. As you probably know, Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger accidentally entered Jean’s apartment thinking it was her own and, thinking him an intruder, fatally shot him. She was found guilty of murder on Tuesday. Guyger is white and Jean was black, a dynamic that resulted in threats of violence in the city. People were braced for the worst.

At the sentencing, however, Botham’s 18 year-old brother Brandt showed the world how to live and love like Christ in a way most of us have never seen. Most of us carry the burden of unforgiveness for far lesser offenses. Christian or not, we can all  learn invaluable lessons from this young man of exceptional character.

Verdict: Anything else could have happened this week, and this man would have convinced me that we are not doomed. He gives me more than enough hope that we’re going to be ok.

Meet the MSNBC Contributor and Collusion Truther that Adam Schiff Hired to Question Kurt Volker

Westlake Legal Group clowns-620x411 Meet the MSNBC Contributor and Collusion Truther that Adam Schiff Hired to Question Kurt Volker Ukraine Russia Conspiracy Theorist Politics Nancy Pelosi MSNBC media bias Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats Contributor Collusion Truther Clown Show Allow Media Exception adam schiff 2020

Everything that’s old is new again. It doesn’t matter how wrong these people where about the Mueller investigation, they just keep on keeping on and Adam Schiff is going to make sure of it.

Kurt Volker managed to frustrate Schiff during his testimony earlier this week, sending him scrambling to take over questioning from the lawyer he’d hired. He was supposed to give the Democrats the impeachment fodder they need and it just wasn’t happening.

Now we are finding out just who the counsel was that Schiff shoved aside in desperation.

This per The Federalist.

A former MSNBC contributor was tapped by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., to question Ukraine envoy Kurt Volker during a congressional hearing on Thursday, officials with direct knowledge of the proceedings told The Federalist. Daniel Goldman, a former legal analyst for MSNBC, posed multiple questions to Volker during Thursday’s closed-door interview of Volker…

…At one point Goldman became so flustered during his questioning of Volker that Schiff unexpectedly shut Goldman down and began questioning Volker himself, one official said.

The lack of seriousness by Schiff is obvious. He’s not out to conduct a real investigation. He’s out to push a narrative, and if that means bringing on a former MSNBC talking head to spin conspiracy theories, then that’s what he’s going to do. And to be certain, Goldman is a conspiracy theorist.

Last December, Goldman endorsed discredited conspiracy theories from Christopher Steele, a former British spy who was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to work with foreign governments to spread dirt about Trump in order to influence voters in the 2016 presidential elections. In December, Goldman claimed that a debunked allegation that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen had traveled to Prague in August of 2016 to secretly plot with Kremlin officials had been corroborated. He also claimed, long after the Steele dossier had been debunked, that “nothing had been undermined” in the dossier.

Goldman is apparently the Ken Dilanian of Natasha Bertrands. The talking point from December about the dossier not being discredited was bandied about by several well known Fusion GPS lackeys, including the Lawfare Blog. It’s unlikely Goldman’s repeating of that claim was by accident.

And if you guessed he pushed conspiritorial nonsense against Brett Kavanaugh as well, collect your winnings at the window.

As an MSNBC contributor, Goldman also falsely claimed during the nomination and confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that Christine Blasey Ford’s rape accusations against Kavanaugh had been corroborated.

The Blasey Ford accusation was a lot of things. Corroborated was not one of them. It should also surprise no one that this guy worked for Preet Bharara, the fired U.S. attorney that Democrats and Never Trumpers rallied around after Trump did the completely normal thing of cleaning house upon taking office (you’ll recall Clinton and Bush did the same thing). Bharara has gone on to become a vocal opponent of the President.

Schiff is simply getting the band back together here. All of the same people who have been wrong about nearly everything during the Trump era are now going to be at the forefront of this latest nonsense. You can expect it to end the same way for them.

Gowdy: Schiff Has Made Himself a Fact Witness in Ukraine Matter and Should be Called to Testify

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-05-at-9.15.53-AM Gowdy: Schiff Has Made Himself a Fact Witness in Ukraine Matter and Should be Called to Testify Uncategorized Ukraine Trey Gowdy Media Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Congress Allow Media Exception adam schiff

Screenshot from this Fox video

Former Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Trey Gowdy, had a few things to say about his former colleague, the present chair, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the drama surrounding his handling and involvement in the Ukraine whistleblower call matter.

The former federal prosecutor Gowdy immediately pointed out the huge problem for Schiff having contacts with the whistleblower. “Right now, he’s made himself a fact witness. He is in the evidentiary chain for what happened with this whistleblower and I hope the Republicans make him testify,” Gowdy explained.

Gowdy also blasted Schiff for even getting four Pinocchios from the liberal Washington Post after Schiff’s public stories about his contacts with the whistleblower and knowledge of his claim didn’t seem to match the facts. The WaPo called Schiff’s comments “flat out false.”

From Fox News:

“I think you got four [Pinocchios] only because you can’t get five,” Gowdy joked. “He got the maximum sentence you could get from the Washington Post fact checker — and don’t you know how hard that was for the Washington Post to give Adam Schiff four Pinocchios?”

“That’s the Seventh sign of the Apocalypse,” Gowdy laughed. “I think I have to get my affairs in order.”

Gowdy hit Schiff for his history of not being truthful, referring to him as a “career offender.”

“The same guy that had the parody a week or so ago, the same guy that says he has evidence that even [former Special Counsel Robert] Mueller couldn’t find,” Gowdy said. “The question I had is, How long is Speaker Pelosi going to put up with Adam mishandling this investigation?”

We still haven’t seen that “evidence” that Schiff claims conclusively proved the Trump team colluded with Russia.

Gowdy also pointedly observed that Pelosi seems to have swiped the matter from Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), the chair of the Judiciary Committee who would normally handle an impeachment inquiry and handed it over to Schiff who is messing up. But of course, nothing is normal about this and it isn’t even a formal inquiry yet. If this were a formal inquiry, Republicans would have the right to question him.

Too bad Gowdy isn’t still in Congress to be able to question Schiff about all this? Wouldn’t that be something?

That said, Schiff definitely needs to be called to account, as Gowdy says.

This places the whole process at risk and it should not be tolerated.

But is Speaker Nancy Pelosi likely to hold Schiff’s feet to the fire?

Given that she actually defended Schiff’s fake account of the Trump Ukraine phone call, saying incredibly that “he didn’t make it up,” one can’t have a lot of confidence that she will.

Wow: Unemployment Under Trump Hits 50 Year Low, Trump Poll Numbers Ride High

Democrats want to do anything they can to attack Trump and try to cloud the view of the facts.

Because they really can’t handle the truth. It’s the truth that’s going to do them in 2020.

It’s pretty hard to get around the great economy that President Donald Trump has ushered in.

The latest report shows that unemployment has hit an incredible 50 year low.

From CNBC:

The jobless rate dropped 0.2 percentage points to 3.5%, matching a level it last saw in December 1969. A more encompassing measure that includes discouraged workers and the underemployed also fell, declining 0.3 percent points to 6.9%, matching its lowest in nearly 19 years and just off the all-time low of 6.8%.

The rate for Hispanics hit a record low, while the level for African Americans stayed at the lowest number ever.

Those great numbers also pushed the stock market up. The Dow rallied more than 350 points after the report came out.

Sorry, Democrats, some of you who hoped a recession might hit and do Trump in, continue to be out of luck.

And even in the climate of Democrats, with the aid of media, throwing everything they can at Trump, his poll numbers are defying expectations.

In spite of everything, Trump’s numbers are the highest of the year at 49% approval in the Hill Harris Survey and Trump’s raking in record dollars in the third quarter, at $125 million, a lot of it from people angry with the whole impeachment charade.

Doubtless, they’ll pull out more stuff to try to throw at Trump, especially come 2020.

But it’s really hard to argue with success.

Especially when all your opponents have are tired old socialist thoughts

As the CNBC poll article accurately notes, Americans voted Trump in as the change agent.

And he’s delivering.

‘Flat-Out False’: Unlikely Source Calls Out Adam Schiff For Lying About Dealings With Whistleblower

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., talks to reporters about the release by the White House of a transcript of a call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Voldymyr Zelenskiy, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

As we all know, a broken clock is right twice a day, and in this instance the broken clock is none other than the reliably left-leaning crew at the Washington Post.

Glenn Kessler, the paper’s fact checker, surprisingly took House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff to the woodshed today for recent (false) claims he made stating his office had “not spoken directly with the whistleblower” at the center of the Trump/Zelensky phone call controversy:

“Have you heard from the whistleblower? Do you want to hear from the whistleblower? What protections could you provide to the whistleblower?” [Sam] Stein, an MSNBC contributor, asked on “Morning Joe.”

“We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to,” Schiff responded. “But I am sure the whistleblower has concerns that he has not been advised, as the law requires, by the inspector general or the director of national Intelligence just how he is supposed to communicate with Congress, and so the risk to the whistleblower is retaliation.”

The Post said Schiff’s response was “flat-out false.”

“Schiff on ‘Morning Joe’ clearly made a statement that was false,” the fact-checker said. “He now says he’s was answering the wrong question, but if that was the case, he should have quickly corrected the record. He compounded his falsehood by telling reporters a few days later that if not for the [inspector general’s] office, the committee would not have known about the complaint. That again suggested there had been no prior communication.”

Kessler also pointed out two other instances of Schiff being dishonest on this same question. One of them was during a CNN interview with Anderson Cooper and the other was during a Capitol Hill press conference.

As a result of his “flat-out false” comments, Kessler awarded Schiff with four Pinocchios.

Kessler, who I suspect has a mostly liberal audience of loyal Twitter followers, took issue with President Trump’s touting of the ruling, and made note several times of the fact that he had ruled similarly on some Trump claims as well. But his tweets sorta kinda missed the point:

I helpfully fact checked the fact checker himself:

Sometimes they make it too easy.

    News Breaks That the Whistle-Blower Worked for a Current 2020 Democrat Presidential Candidate

    Westlake Legal Group gs-adam-schiff-620x413 News Breaks That the Whistle-Blower Worked for a Current 2020 Democrat Presidential Candidate zelensky whistle-blower Ukraine Politics media bias Joe Biden Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats complaint campaign Allow Media Exception 2020 Candidate

    Adam Schiff by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

    I get to gloat a little on this one.

    Earlier today, I wrote on the news that the Trump-Ukraine “whistle-blower” was a registered Democrat. On its own, that’s somewhat telling news, but perhaps not overwhelmingly meaningful without more information. In my article, I opined why I thought CNN chose to report the story in the first place given their editorial leans.

    Now, you might ask yourself why CNN would report this. The answer is simple. It’s called getting ahead of a story to help frame it. We’ve seen this over and over when damaging information that could possibly help Donald Trump is on the verge of being exposed. Instead of letting it drop, legacy news agencies run and get anonymous quotes to try to get the information out there while presenting it in the best possible light…

    The goal here is to get the political affiliation of the whistle-blower out there early so that when more evidence of bias drops, Democrats can claim it’s old news and not relevant to the complaint.

    Games are being played here. Don’t be fooled.

    Like clockwork, we’ve now got more information on the bias of the whistle-blower and I was exactly right. Not only was a he registered Democrat, the guy worked on the campaign of a current 2020 candidate.

    Given that this likely occurred some years ago before this person became a CIA agent, the most likely answer is that it was on one of Joe Biden’s campaigns or possibly under Biden during the Obama campaign. We had already heard rumors that the ICIG found bias toward Biden and this latest revelation drops everything into to place.

    In short, we have a registered Democrat that worked for a Democrat presidential candidate, who went to Adam Schiff first, and we are supposed to believe this is all on the up and up? Yeah, I’m gonna go with a no on that one. The complaint itself has continues to fall apart, and even though he got some details of the call correct, none of his most salacious allegations have been shown to be true. If that sounds a lot like the Steele dossier, congrats on being more perceptive than all of the legacy media.

    She could be growing tomatoes.

    She could be digging in the dirt, sporting her wide-brimmed straw hat.

    She could be enjoying retirement, having lived in the White House and served in government.

    Or she could be running for office again.

    Or running a frozen banana stand.

    Or anything else in the present, headed for the future.

    But for some unknown and paralyzing reason, Hillary Clinton cannot let it go.

    She can’t catch up to November 9th, 2016 — the day she awoke to a lost campaign.

    She’s still somewhere — or, somewhen — on November 8th or before.

    It’s been nearly three years.

    But bitterness is a heck of a time machine.

    And Hillary’s DeLorean-ensconced.

    Hence, the former First Lady took to Twitter to offer something not only resentful but also ridiculous. 

    She quoted civil rights attorney, Democratic Texas Rep. Barbara Jordan from 1974:

    “If the impeachment provision in the Constitution of the United States will not reach the offenses charged here, then perhaps that 18th-century Constitution should be abandoned to a 20th-century paper shredder!”

    Barbara was referring to the shenanigans of Richard Nixon.

    Hillary was, of course, referring to the impeachment of her hus– I mean, Donald Trump.

    So Trump’s offenses are so extreme that the founding document of our nation should be shredded if they don’t apply?

    I have a suggestion: How about, instead, say something not completely absurd? Just an idea.

    But let’s go with this.

    Is impeachment reasonable?

    As I covered previously, Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel say no:

    The key question with Trump’s Ukraine call, though, is whether the president’s actions, advisable or not, rise to the level of an impeachable offense. It’s hard to argue they do. The president did not, as was first reported, offer a quid pro quo to the Ukrainians. He did not condition any U.S. support on a Biden investigation. The Justice Department has already looked at the totality of the call and determined that Trump did not break the law.

    Additionally, though impeachment may be, for Hillary, a shot of the ol’ euphoria like a grand inhalation at the dentist’s, on the other side of the proceedings will lie something else shredded: the Democrats’ hope for 2020 success. For reasons stated here, here, here, and here.

    And the failed 2016 candidate’s helping it right along.

    She shoulda stuck with the tomatoes.

    But she’s stuck far behind in the past. And she can’t ketchup.

    Report: Whistleblower Did Not Inform ICIG About Contacts With Schiff, Which May Have Been a Felony

    A lot of information is coming out now which is effectively destroying the credibility of the complaint of the Ukraine whistleblower, from the knowledge that the whistleblower had contacts with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) while Schiff was saying publicly that he had no contacts, to the Volker testimony that was just released completely blowing the claims in the complaint out of the water.

    We also found out the person is, big surprise, a registered Democrat.

    But now there’s more information and it may spell big trouble for the whistleblower, if true.

    From The Federalist:

    According to Fox News investigative reporter Catherine Herridge, ICIG Michael Atkinson testified before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) that the anti-Trump complainant, whose identity has not been made public, did not inform the ICIG in his complaint that he or his team had already contacted Democratic staff working for Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the chairman of the House intelligence committee.

    Another contact involved the whistleblower writing a letter to Schiff on August 12, informing him about his concerns. The letter contained an attachment which has not been released. But the complaint was allegedly dated August 12.

    The Federalist explains why this failure is such a problem:

    The complainant’s failure to disclose his interactions with Schiff or his staff could put him in legal hot water, as the whistleblower form he submitted requires individuals to disclose “other actions you are taking on your disclosure” under penalty of perjury. An entire page of the whistleblower form is dedicated to collecting information about previous disclosures so the ICIG can take appropriate action in response to the complaint.

    “I have previously disclosed (or am disclosing) the violations alleged here to (complete all that apply),” the form requires the complainant to attest. The form includes checkboxes for disclosures to other inspectors general, other agencies, the Department of Justice, the Government Accountability Office, the Office of Special Counsel, other executive branch departments, Congress and its respective committees, and media. It also includes a separate question asking the complainant to detail those previous disclosures to the ICIG.

    The bottom of the form requires the complainant to swear to the truth of everything asserted or the person could face prosecution for a false statement, a felony that could earn one five years in prison.

    The Federalist confirmed with an official that the box about notifying Congress was left empty.

    It is not clear exactly when the contact with the aide was made or whether there were potentially other contacts. But the contact with the aide, who told the whistleblower to go the ICIG obviously preceded filling out the form for the ICIG, hence the problem.
