DOJ Files a Devastating Brief Exposing Jerry Nadler’s Impeachment Inquiry Scam

Recently, I covered Jerry Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee passing rules for an “impeachment inquiry.” As some of us have speculated for months now, this was simply an attempt at stealth impeachment, i.e. getting to use the benefits of impeachment (grand jury access, increased subpoena power, etc.) without having too actually pass articles of impeachment.

The game in this case is that Nadler wants to pretend he’s emperor with no guidelines while not having to pay the political price of having House Democrats actually vote as a majority to impeach. There’s noway the courts should allow that and it would present an enormously dangerous precedent if allowed to proceed.

Now, the DOJ is striking back, signaling they aren’t going to take this nonsense lying down.

Judges, if they are fair, don’t usually like double talk and political games. That’s exactly what the Democrats have been doing. They continually downplay impeachment publicly, claiming that what Nadler is doing isn’t actually an impeachment inquiry, then they run to their base and tell them the opposite. Remember, we’ve been assured by Democrats that what you say publicly matters to how judges should rule on your actions (i.e. Trump’s tweets). Meanwhile, they want to the courts to play along with this scam, giving them near unlimited power of investigation without them having to go through the proper channels to get it.

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

Thousands of Remains from Aborted Babies Found In Illinois Abortion Doctor’s Home

Westlake Legal Group Preborn-Baby-in-the-Womb-620x324 Thousands of Remains from Aborted Babies Found In Illinois Abortion Doctor’s Home South Bend Illinois Front Page Stories fetus Featured Story doctor body parts baby Allow Media Exception Abortion

There’s a sickness surrounding abortion and those who perform it as a profession. One Illinois abortion doctor had around 2,000 fetal body parts in his home despite the fact that no abortions were ever performed there.

According to WSBT, police say the doctor who resided in South Bend passed away earlier this month. As his family went into his home to clean it out, they found the thousands of remains:

Officials say 2,246 fetal remains were found in the home of a doctor who used to perform abortions in South Bend until his license was suspended in 2015.

Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who has a home in Will County, Illinois, passed away on September 3.

Last week his family was looking through his home in Will County following his death.

There they found the fetal remains.

According to WSBT, Klopfer had been suspended from practicing abortions back in 2015 over various violations surrounding his practice:

Klopfer used to practice out of Women’s Pavilion in South Bend. You may remember the state of Indiana suspended Klopfer’s medical license in 2015 for failing to exercise reasonable care and violating several notice and documentation requirements. He was accused of failing to report an abortion preformed on a 13-year-old.

Why someone who hadn’t practiced in the abortion field for four years would still maintain thousands of fetal baby parts in his home is confusing, but police are investigating the situation. Perhaps he was selling them, or worse, he was keeping them as trophies. I’d hate to speculate, but this is something you’d see in horror movies.

As we’ve learned from various stings in the past, major abortion providers are fully into the business of selling the body parts of aborted babies and they do have some value. Perhaps the police investigation will find something far deeper than a sick mind.

Regardless of the intent, “sick” is the only real way to describe this.

Even Democrat Lawmakers Wish O’Rourke Hadn’t Said He’d Take Our Guns

It wasn’t a great moment for Democrats during the 2020 debates last week when Robert “Beto” O’Rourke promised that he was going to take our AR-15’s and AK-47’s. He even sent out a similar tweet to make sure we understood he wasn’t kidding. While he got massive applause for it from the crowd, the majority of America wasn’t so keen on it, and actually began dogpiling onto O’Rourke.

But it wasn’t just pro-gun Americans and right-leaning voters that thought O’Rourke’s declaration was foolish. Democrat politicians did too, namely Sen. Christopher Coons of Deleware, who went on CNN on Friday to foretell that O’Rourke’s gun grab promise is going to haunt Democrats for years according to The Hill

“I frankly think that that clip will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying that Democrats are coming for your guns,” Coons, an ally of former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic race, told CNN’s Poppy Harlow in an interview.

He’s not wrong. Those who like and want to keep their guns are consistently up against a Democrat party that has tried to restrict them in one way or another, and from time to time. However, we’ve always heard that they don’t want to take away our guns, just certain ones, or make them harder to get for everyone’s safety.

From time to time, however, Democrats or gun grabbers like O’Rourke will say something that proves gun owners’ fears right. The goal of the Democrats was to ban guns, but America is a pro-gun country and in order to pass a full-on ban, the Overton window would have to be moved little by little.

O’Rourke just gave up the game. This was even mentioned by The Hill:

O’Rourke’s statement confirms the fears of many Republicans and gun rights advocates who say the ultimate goal of the gun control movement is government confiscation of firearms.

“When you really understand what the endgame of the left is, it’s literally mandatory buybacks or as I call it: confiscation. This is a step-by-step process for them,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told The Hill Thursday when asked about the debate over expanded background checks for firearms sales.

Trump At The G-7 Summit Looking For Egyptian President: ‘Where’s My Favorite Dictator?’

The Wall Street Journal reported a rather amusing anecdote from the August G-7 summit in Biarritz, France.

Inside a room of the ornately decorated Hotel du Palais, President Trump awaited a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi.

“Where’s my favorite dictator?” Mr. Trump called out in a voice loud enough to be heard by the small gathering of American and Egyptian officials. Several people who were in the room at the time said they heard the question.

The witnesses said they believed the president made the comment jokingly, but said his question was met by a stunned silence.

Although some may have found Trump’s remark to be inappropriate in such a formal setting, I think Trump’s sense of humor is one of his greatest assets. It helps him to establish closer ties and to build bridges with leaders he otherwise has little in common with. Humor is a language everyone understands.

This obviously wasn’t the first time the two have met. In 2017, Trump hosted a state visit from Sisi and the two appear to have maintained a friendly relationship.

Following their meeting, Trump told reporters that he “celebrated his relationship with Mr. Sisi, noting that the two leaders had begun talking with each other soon after Mr. Trump won the presidential election in 2016.”

Trump said, “We understood each other very well. He’s a very tough man, I will tell you that. But he’s also a good man, and he’s done a fantastic job in Egypt. Not easy.”

Hilarious! Trump Tells A Joke, And The Washington Post Fact-Checks It

President Trump Official White House Photo

 

During a speech at the Republican retreat on Thursday night in Baltimore, President Trump explained why he’s not a fan of new, energy-efficient lightbulbs.

In the clip below, he tells his audience, “The light’s no good. I always look orange.” And the crowd loved it.

Clearly, the President was joking. But that didn’t stop the Washington Post from fact-checking his comment.

Yes, really.

In an article entitled “Trump blamed energy-saving bulbs for making him look orange. Experts say probably not,” writer Rebecca Tan weighs in:

The comment drew laughs from the audience, though it was not immediately clear whether the president meant it in jest or in earnest. The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

It is true that bulbs have different light temperatures, but the effect this has on someone’s complexion is typically not very significant, said Jocelyn Augustino, a D.C.-based freelance photographer.

“When you go into a family’s house, just because there are tungsten lights, I don’t think you look around the room and think everyone looks orange,” she said.

In situations where the president is being photographed or filmed, professional photographers will know to adjust the white balance so that it is accurate to what is being seen in person, she added. “It’s video or photo 101.”

Tamzin Smith, a portrait photographer in Rockville, Md., pointed out that Trump’s orange complexion is visible even when he is photographed against white backgrounds. If bulbs were responsible for casting a warm glow, anything white in a photo of the president — including the background, a white shirt, or even his teeth — should also be orange.

“You can see that even when his teeth are white, his skin is orangey-red,” Smith said. “It’s definitely not the lighting.”

A clear case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Kamala Harris Nears Cancellation

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-08-21-at-10.25.40-AM-620x332 Kamala Harris Nears Cancellation Polling Politics kamala harris Front Page Stories Front Page Floundering Featured Story Election donald trump democrats Democrat primary cancelled Big Donors 2020

Kamala Harris had a bad night last night.

If you didn’t watch it, you weren’t alone. No doubt many preferred watching a bad NFL football game or reruns of Seinfeld to whatever it was that happened on that stage in Texas. We heard the laundry list of liberal lunacy and false promises. Banning semi-automatics, climate change, social justice, etc. Nothing new, but that doesn’t make it any less comforting.

Harris was especially cringeworthy though. She almost appeared inebriated at times. Take this clip for example.

If you can’t watch it, she’s giggling like a school girl while badly delivering a “yes, we can” joke in response to Biden pointing out she’s not a dictator who can do whatever she wants with executive orders.

Much more concerning than her horrible comedic skills though is her positioning in the race, which continues to spook her donors. Things are starting to come to a head now.

Grim is never a word you want to hear about your campaign. CNBC has the report.

Sen. Kamala Harris’ debate performance on Thursday failed to impress many of her party’s big-money donors who were on the fence about her candidacy.

Going into the Democratic primary debate in Houston, Harris’ closest supporters privately acknowledged that if the senator from California did not come out swinging against her opponents and clearly define her policies, wealthy donors could shy away from her campaign.

Many of them were hoping for a repeat of the aggressive tactics she used in the first debate, when she took on former Vice President Joe Biden for his willingness to work with segregationists as a senator in the 1970s.

Now these sources say that those uncommitted contributors are still not convinced they can dedicate their expansive networks to her cause alone.

When the money stops flowing, things can end very quickly.

“I don’t think anything has changed, and it’s been grim,” this person said. Donors believe that on the debate stage Harris is still “unclear about her message and strategy,” this person said. They liked the “Trump focus,” this person said, “but there was too much odd laughter and canned lines.”

This person added that most of their donors want to help former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., or South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

This is all predictable. I’ll pat myself on the back again by reminding everyone that I said Harris was a sucker’s bet the day after her supposedly “game-changing” first debate performance. She simply doesn’t have the charisma and she comes across as a fraud. Those are never qualities to lack if you want to connect with voters and create excitement.

The Democratic primary is essentially a three horse race right now and Bernie Sanders is mostly a mirage. He simply doesn’t have the ability to build a majority. What’s most likely to happen is that Sanders and Warren continue to split the crazy vote while Biden coasts down the middle. Harris is fast approaching not even being a factor. After her failure last night, she has no path to climb back in the race and with her donors bailing, cancellation is near.

‘Morning Joe’s’ Mika Goes Full Maury, Questions the Paternity of Barron Trump

Westlake Legal Group egg-1364869_1280-620x391 ‘Morning Joe’s’ Mika Goes Full Maury, Questions the Paternity of Barron Trump Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

On Friday morning, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski took a novel approach to news and commentary: She turned into Maury Povich.

The Morning Joe chick went full “Who’s your daddy” with regard to 13-year-old Barron Trump.

Joe — Mika’s husband — referenced a comment from POTUS two days before:

“We’re going to have Donald Trump, yesterday — I think it was yesterday — in the White House, talking about ‘Melania’s son.’”

Mika theorized:

“Maybe it is Melania’s son…”

“It is Melania’s son?” Joe volleyed.

Take it away, Maury…uh, Mika:

“Well, that’s what he was saying. He was saying it was just her son. It’s not — that’s just what he said.”

Joe: “Let me get back to Biden, because I don’t know exactly what you’re saying.”

“It seems that he didn’t remember Barron’s name or…”

“Just stop, just stop,” the hubs halted.

As noted by The Daily Wire, on Wednesday, the President was speaking to reporters about vaping:

“[It] has become a very big business as I understand it, like a giant business in a very short period of time. But we can’t allow people to get sick, and we can’t have our youth be so affected. And I’m hearing it, and that’s how the First Lady got involved. She’s got a son, together, that is a beautiful young man and she feels very, very strongly about it.”

Therefore, apparently, Trump ain’t the pops.

Perhaps you frequently wonder how comments made about Trump would be received, were they spoken about Obama. If not, this might be a good opportunity for ya to start.

Social media noticed the daytime-talk-show low of it all:

I’ll say this, though: Mika’s not necessarily soiling the network’s reputation. It’s got a great history, and no one can take that away:

Beto O’Rourke Is Coming for Your Fully Semi-Automatic Grenade Launcher

Beto O’Rourke by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

You want authentic? You want pandering? Well, Beto O’Rourke has you covered.

With a campaign that’s flat-lined since nearly day one, Beto has decided to make gun control his chief issue. He apparently feels he can use the dead bodies from a shooting in his home town of El Paso to propel his political fortunes into winning territory. That isn’t happening but it doesn’t mean he’s not going to keep trying.

That was on full display last night at the third Democratic debate, where Beto once again reiterated that he’s coming for your guns with force.

It’s a weapon designed to kill people on a battlefield that wasn’t actually designed for military use, but hey Beto says it so it must be true. You certainly aren’t going to see any media outlets fact-checking this stuff as they are all in on the movement to ban semi-automatic weapons. MSNBC was even describing such lunacy as a “moderate position” last night because of course they are.

Because Beto is the most robotic, fraudulent candidate in recent history, he’s decided to go all on in social media on taking law abiding citizens’ guns.

Then Beto decided he was going to beg for money and this was the result.

Yes, that’s a fully automatic M4 with grenade launcher and silencer. So very menacing. Also so very not legal for almost anyone in the country to own. The few people that do own fully automatic weapons in the United States do so after spending a ton of money and going through a ton of government scrutiny. There’s a reason you never see them used in crimes.

There was one thing missing though.

In all seriousness, what Beto is doing here is profoundly dangerous. No, he’s not going to be President, but he’s whipping the left up into a frenzy on this issue that could lead us to a tipping point. If any Democrat politician actually succeeds in trying to confiscate legally owned firearms in violation of the constitution, it’s not going to end well.

Everyone needs to take a deep breath. You don’t stop mass killers by taking guns from normal people. The worst school shooting in our history was done with a pistol. Violence finds a way and that’s why focusing on mental health and enforcing current laws (which have often been ignored by authorities in these cases) is the only viable path forward.

McCabe Lawyers, Citing WaPo Report That Grand Jury Declined to Indict, Push DOJ To ‘End Proceedings’

Westlake Legal Group ap-andrew-mccabe-620x413 McCabe Lawyers, Citing WaPo Report That Grand Jury Declined to Indict, Push DOJ To ‘End Proceedings’ Mueller Investigation Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption collusion Andrew McCabe Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power

 

On Thursday, we heard the bombshell news that the DOJ had rejected fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s appeal of the decision to recommend charges against him.

On Thursday night, McCabe’s lawyers sent an inquiry to US Attorney Jesse Liu and several other DOJ prosecutors. They cited a Washington Post report from the morning which said that a grand jury had already met and had declined to indict McCabe.

The Washington Post report they refer to said “a grand jury was recently summoned back after a months-long hiatus to consider the case” but “came and went with no public charges being filed.” A second article appeared in the New York Times which had cited the Washington Post report as their source.

The email, sent by McCabe lawyer Michael Bromwich, said they had heard “rumors from reporters starting this morning that the grand jury considering charges against Mr. McCabe had declined to vote an indictment.”

According to the Washington Post, “Bromwich noted he had “no independent knowledge of whether the reporting is accurate” but suggested that if it was, prosecutors should abandon their effort. He also wrote that, based on a Thursday discussion with federal prosecutors, “it is clear that no indictment has been returned.”

Bromwich added:

If this is the case, the only fair and just result is for you to accept the grand jury’s decision and end these proceedings.

In substance, the decision whether to resubmit a case, following a no true bill, to the same grand jury — or submit the case to a new grand jury — is entrusted to your discretion. We believe that for the reasons we have presented to you and the Deputy Attorney General in person and in writing, you should not resubmit this case.

(Note: A “no true bill” case refers to a situation when grand jurors are asked to bring an indictment and decline to do so.)

Bromwich sent a second email which said, “Please confirm that, if this in fact occurred, you would advise us promptly.”

Fox News points out that “it is rare for a grand jury not to indict when presented evidence by prosecutors.” They also note that grand juries are known for their secrecy, so this was highly unusual.

According to The Lawfare blog, Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure forbids the government, court officials or grand jurors from disclosing matters before the grand jury.

If the grand jury did convene as rumored on Thursday, Lawfare said there are two possibilities.

The first is that the jury failed to obtain the necessary votes to indict McCabe. And they stress that this almost never happens. Lawfare said there is “an old saying that a prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich.”

The other outcome is that the grand jury voted to indict, but the record remains under seal.
