Rep. Elijah Cummings, Central Figure In Impeachment Inquiry, Dies At 68

Westlake Legal Group Elijah-Cummings-Finger1 Rep. Elijah Cummings, Central Figure In Impeachment Inquiry, Dies At 68 Rep. Elijah Cummings impeachment Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats death Breaking baltimore Allow Media Exception

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) died early this morning from complications of various health issues, according to his office. He was 68 years old.

A central figure in the impeachment inquiry in Congress, Cummings was the chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee. He was one of three chairmen leading the investigation into President Donald Trump’s call with and actions regarding Ukraine. Cummings was an outspoken critic of the President, and was the target of a much-criticized tweet from Trump calling Cummings’ city of Baltimore a “rat-infested mess.”

The Baltimore native has received praise from both sides of the political aisle for his years of service in Congress.

From Democrat Joe Kennedy III:

To Republican Chip Roy:

The passing of Cummings will mean that Speaker Nancy Pelosi will have to pick a new chair for Cummings’ committee and a special election will eventually be held in his district, MD-07, which is a D+51 district and will likely feature several candidates vying for the job.

Could The China Trade War Be Nearing An End?

Westlake Legal Group Trump-invites-trade-war Could The China Trade War Be Nearing An End? white house Trade War trade Tariffs Front Page Stories Featured Story Economy China Trade Talks China

Ever since the Trump administration began shifting how it dealt with China on trade, doomsday prophets have been warning us that we would all feel the economic pain of new tariffs and our economy may not survive it.

So far, that doesn’t seem to have played out as dramatically as predicted as the trade war has ebbed and flowed over two years. And now, if the White House is correct it its assessment, the war may be nearing its end.

While Americans certainly have paid billions more per month, and have been encouraged to buy American to help minimize the sting, according to a Friday announcement from the White House, Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping hope to sign the first phase of a tentative trade deal at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit on Nov. 16-17 in Santiago, Chile.

Initially, the White House decided on a good faith action to suspend an Oct. 15 scheduled increase in tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods. But the tariffs on another $400 billion of goods from China, as well as new tariffs scheduled to take effect in December, have not been included in the phase I portion of the new deal.

For now, it looks like the initial phase will be all about China buying American agricultural goods as it battles challenges in its own agricultural sector.

According to Trump, China has also agreed to continue purchasing more U.S. agricultural products. Chinese purchases of U.S. agricultural products have been resuming as China’s farmers continue to battle an African Swine Flu and Fall Armyworm infestation that’s been destroying their pig and crop numbers.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin clarified that China will eventually buy between $40 to $50 billion worth of agricultural products a year.

While there is no text for phase one of a deal with China, in principle, other parts of the deal will include addressing issues like non-tariff barriers to U.S. agricultural exports to China, financial services and market accessibly, intellectual property protection, stopping the transfer of technology, and possibly an agreement on currency manipulation.

Some of these issues will be covered in other phases as well.

The Daily Signal suggests the phased approach may be a work-around for the two leaders to gain trust in the wake of other potential deals that failed earlier in 2019. If the deal is agreed upon in November, planning for future phases will likely begin immediately.

Which raises the question: what will those who warned engaging in a trade war would lead to never-ending negotiations and increasingly high prices have to criticize if the administration manages to get a phased deal going?

What will happen if it works?

Trump’s Meeting With Democrat Leadership Ends Pretty Much As You Guessed It Would

President Trump met with Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Steny Hoyer this afternoon on the subject of Syria. You didn’t need much imagination to see how this particular movie was going to end. Like the last several meetings between Trump and Pelosi, it broke down in recriminations. Allegedly, and I say that because the only people talking now are the Democrats and they aren’t terribly trustworty, Trump called Pelosi a “third rate politician” and Pelosi resurrected the scurrilous falsehood disproven by Robert Mueller that Trump is doing Putin’s bidding. (By the way, if your only foreign policy objective is to do something to stymie another country, you don’t have a policy, you have a middle school mean girls clique.) When the meeting broke up, Trump promised to “see [them] at the polls.”

Now both sides are engaged in trolling.

In her statement, on the video, Pelosi claims Trump was rattled by the House vote to disapprove of his action on Syria (that and about $7 will get you coffee at Starbucks).

Trump took to Twitter

Pelosi is using one of the image Trump released of the meeting as her Twitter cover image.

Just some thoughts:

  • There is little doubt in my mind that Trump was probably torqued by the House vote. He had no reason to be because it was obvious how that was going to go.
  • A case might be made that Trump was trying to provoke Pelosi into an impeachment vote because it is easier to fight something than nothing. But I thing the best explanation is that Trump and Pelosi detest one another and can’t be bothered to put on a facade of comity.
  • I’m not really certain why Trump agreed to meet with the Democrat leadership on this subject. It isn’t like they are going to do anything but screw with him. My guess is that one of the big brain thinkers in the White House thought it would be a great show of something or another if Trump could be seen doing business with the vicious harridan who has spent three years trying to delegitimize his presidency. I hope that person is unemployed tonight.
  • Neither side came out of this looking great, but neither was hurt in general and both sides gave their partisans some red meat.
  • As long as impeachment is on the table, there is no good reason for Trump or his White House to have any dealings with Pelosi at all.
  • If there was an upside to this, it was Trump sending a message to the executive branch that you deal with House Democrats at your peril.

Dan Crenshaw Slams House Dem Who Called Him a “Racist” Over His Stance Against Illegal Immigrants Voting

It is like clockwork that nearly every time a Democrat is asked a question about the controversial and oftentimes anti-Semitical comments made by certain members of The Squad, they will dodge and deflect to so-called “racist” Republicans instead of issuing unequivocal condemnations of members of their own party.

Such was the case earlier this month when freshman Rep. Sean Casten (D-IL) was asked during a town hall about Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) and the various anti-Semitic statements she’s made.

Instead of making it clear in no uncertain terms that Omar’s remarks were despicable and anti-Semitic in nature, Casten gave a generic response about how Omar’s statements were “horribly inappropriate” before quickly trying to portray the GOP, especially President Trump and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX), as the real bad guys in this argument.

Here’s what he said:

“There are people who are afraid to go to a synagogue because they’re afraid they might be shot. I’m not worried about Ilhan Omar,” Casten said. “I’m worried about attacks from that are coming down from the Right and we are far too quick to condemn hatred when it comes out of a mouth of a brown woman with a head scarf than we are to condemn when it comes out of a mouth of a white supremacist.”

He then pivoted to focus on Crenshaw, who introduced an amendment to the resolution, which Casten referred to as racist.

“The last amendment on the floor that day came from Dan Crenshaw, the new Republican, the Navy SEAL with the eye patch. He came up with an amendment to say we’re going to add a rider on this bill that says that illegals can’t vote,” Casten said. “… why are you doing that? The reason you’re doing that is because you are a racist. Because you are trying to appeal to people who will vote for you if you stand up and oppose brown people.”

Watch Casten reply to the question from his constituent below:

Here’s how Crenshaw responded, according to the Daily Wire:

“Rep. Casten, we’ve never met, we’ve never talked. I’ve never insulted you,” he continued. “But instead of articulating a policy position, you resort to petty name-calling, which is a good indication you can’t defend your argument with any sort of intellectual vigor. This is Congress — it’s our job to debate — but please leave you smear tactics at home next time.”

He also followed up with a couple of tweets about Casten, including one recommending people support a Republican who is vying to run against him next year:

Crenshaw’s spokeswoman Kerry Rom went even further, telling the Free Beacon that Casten “should be honest with his constituents and let them know how little he values the power of their vote” in contrast to how he values the idea of illegal immigrants being allowed to vote in U.S. elections.

During his run for Congress last year, Casten equated President Trump to Osama bin Laden and claimed there were “Nazis” working in the White House.

Casten’s 2018 win in Illinois’ 6th Congressional district was the first one by a Democrat in decades. It’s conceivable that this is one seat that has a realistic potential to flip back to red in 2020 with the right candidate.

Stay tuned.

NEW: Adam Schiff Pressured Witness to Change His Story and Accuse Trump of Pressuring Ukraine

Westlake Legal Group smug-schiff-620x317 NEW: Adam Schiff Pressured Witness to Change His Story and Accuse Trump of Pressuring Ukraine Ukraine testimony scam Pressured Politics political partisan Nancy Pelosi Kurt Volker Improper impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats Berated Allow Media Exception adam schiff 2020

(AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)

Color me shocked, just shocked that Rep. Adam Schiff, one of the most underhanded, dishonest Congressional members in modern history, would stoop to such levels.

This relates to Kurt Volker’s testimony, which turned out to be a major dud for Schiff and his gang. While Volker, being a former John McCain staffer, was expected to come in and fillet Trump, it turned out that he didn’t have much to add to the impeachment fury. Trump, for whatever problems one might have with him talking about Biden in the first place, simply didn’t engage in a quid pro quo, threaten aid, or pressure the Ukrainians.

As I wrote at the time, it was reported that Schiff got so frustrated with how things were going that he sidelined his MSNBC lawyer to question Volker himself. Now, we know why he did that and we’ve got the transcript to illustrate what happened.

This per the Washington Examiner.

Democrat House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff reportedly pressed U.S. special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker in a secret meeting on October 3 to say that President Donald Trump pressured Ukrainian officials to investigate former Vice President and current Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

For someone who likes to mock the President for supposedly sounding like a mob boss, that last line sound rather mob bossy to me. Schiff wasn’t getting the answer he wanted so he lashed out and berated the witness. Seems normal, right?
Here’s the rest of the exchange in question, where you can see Schiff continuing to press him to say something he clearly doesn’t think is actually true.

[Schiff] asked Volker whether he would agree that “no President of the United States should ever ask a foreign leader to help intervene in a U.S. election.”

“I agree with that,” said Volker.

“And that would be particularly egregious if it was done in the context of withholding foreign assistance?” Schiff continued.

Volker balked. “We’re getting now into, you know, a conflation of these things that I didn’t think was actually there.”

Schiff wanted Volker to agree that “if it’s inappropriate for a president to seek foreign help in a U.S. election, it would be doubly so if a president was doing that at a time when the United States was withholding military support from the country.”

Again, Volker did not agree. “I can’t really speak to that,” he said. “My understanding of the security assistance issue is — ”

Schiff interrupted. “Why can’t you speak to that, ambassador? You’re a career diplomat. You can understand the enormous leverage that a president would have while withholding military support from an ally at war with Russia. You can understand just how significant that would be, correct?”

Volker tried to go along without actually agreeing. “I can understand that that would be significant,” he said.

Schiff persisted. “And when that suspension of aid became known to that country, to Ukraine, it would be all the more weighty to consider what the president had asked of them, wouldn’t it?”

“So again, congressman, I don’t believe — ” Volker began.

“It’s a pretty straightforward question,” Schiff said.

“But I don’t believe the Ukrainians were aware that the assistance was being held up — ”

“They became aware of it,” Schiff said.

“They became aware later, but I don’t believe they were aware at the time, so there was no leverage implied,” Volker said.

If this were a Republican and this was the Benghazi hearing, it’d be front page news. As it stands, Schiff appears to be bulletproof in the legacy media. His actions are just ridiculous at this point. He’s holding secret hearings, kicking Republicans out of testimony, and selectively leaking lines he thinks can help his impeachment case.

This isn’t justice. It’s not even proper in the political arena. It’s just plain gross.

President Trump Immolates ABC’s Jon Karl In Must-See Television

This afternoon, President Trump and Italian President Sergio Mattarella held a press conference at the White House. One of the questioners was ABC’s Jon Karl. Karl’s presence was nearly guaranteed to be a lightning rod because Karl has been in the middle of demanding that President Trump “condemn” a video he had nothing to do with because it resulted in hurt feelings and soiled undies.

The video is a meme created from the church massacre scene in the (I thought until the media started squirting feces from their skin pores over it) comedy Kingsman: The Secret Service. Presented for your enjoyment:

 

They demand the condemnation because they are a priesthood and we aren’t allowed to mock them.

Anyway, at the press conference Karl asked a snide and tendentious question

Even after all you have seen — ISIS prisoners freed, all the humanitarian disaster — you don’t have any regret for giving Erdogan the greenlight to invade?

President Trump rejected the question and then gave Karl a taste of the condemnation treatment:

When you ask a question like that, it’s very deceptive, Jon,it’s almost as deceptive as you showing all of the bombings taking place in Syria and it turned out the bombing you showed on television took place in Kentucky. I’m not even sure ABC apologized for that [note–they tweeted an apology but have yet to make an on air apology or retraction]. But certainly, it was a terrible thing. I was looking at that and think, “Wow, that’s pretty bad,” and it was in Kentucky, it wasn’t in Syria. So I don’t know what you’re going to do about that, but I think ABC owes an apology.

What President Trump was referring to was the incident I posted on in ABC News Perpetrates a Fraud on the Nation and the Intrepid Media Fact Check Organizations Are Totally Missing in Action. ABC deliberately, and I say that admiringly because if they didn’t do it deliberately then it is probably the most buffoonish and incompetent news organization ever, used video from an civilian automatic weapons range in Kentucky and claimed it was in Syria.

I’m sure there will be a lot of sniveling over this and The Bulwark and The Dispatch boys and girls will be gravely offended that the President is publicly calling out a news organization for engaging in political propaganda campaign to damage his administration, but this is needed and it needs to be done constantly. Unless the media decide to clean up their act and behave as though they were not an arm of the Democrat party, every Republican and conservative should treat them as though they are the enemy.

Democratic Impeachment Talking Points Leak, But They’re All Things Dems Have Allegedly Done

Here are the Democratic talking points on impeachment, composed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, reported by LA Times congressional reporter Jennifer Haberkorn.

But there are some problems with these talking points re: the Ukraine call.

First, let’s start with that they’ve pretty much all been debunked.

1. National Security. Democrats claim President Donald Trump endangered our national security by withholding “critical military aid” for his “personal political gain.”

That never happened. First, no aid was ever actually withheld. Second, while the administration was considering holding up aid over issues of corruption, Kurt Volker testified that the Ukrainians were not aware of that on the call and so that it couldn’t have been used as a quid pro quo on the call. The Ukrainian president also confirmed that there was no pressure and no quid pro quo mentioned. The transcript also confirmed that that never came up.

2. Undermined our elections. Democrats claim that Trump was using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 election, actions that pose a risk to national security.

Trump asked the Ukrainian president to check if the investigation into Burisma was shut down properly. He did not solicit interference in the 2020 election. An important point to make when most media is reporting it as he requested they investigate Hunter/Joe Biden. That’s not what he said.

3. Abuse of Power. They claim Trump abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election to “do us a favor though.” But the “do us a favor” comment didn’t relate to the Biden conversation, it related to the question of investigating the 2016 election interference, Trump was asking about the server and Crowdstrike. How does that have anything to do with 2020? And why do the Democrats not want to get to the bottom of 2016 interference and what happened to the DNC server? What’s wrong with wanting that investigated?

4. No one is above the law. All they say here is the president will be held accountable. Apparently winning in 2016 is for what he is being “held accountable.”

The problem with this list? They’re all things that Democrats have allegedly done, some in the process of trying to get Trump.

Withholding aid for personal political gain?

There’s Joe Biden’s threat, admitted on video, that he would withhold aid if they didn’t fire the prosecutor. The prosecutor later filed an affidavit in an Austrian legal matter saying he’d been fired because he was in fact investigating Burisma, Joe Biden’s son’s firm. Biden disputes that, saying he was only trying to get the prosecutor fired because of corruption.

As Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) notes, there’s also a letter from three Democratic senators in 2018, threatening withholding aid if the Ukrainians didn’t help to provide info in the Mueller probe. As Paul notes, why is that ok but what Trump did is not?

How about undermining elections?

Where do we begin? Democrats buying alleged Russian information through foreign national Christopher Steele/Fusion GPS, to undermine Trump. Democrats allegedly involved in soliciting interference from Ukraine in the 2016 election to get dirt on Paul Manafort to undermine Trump. See the Democrats 2018 letter mentioned above which could also apply here.

Abuse of power?

What do you call conducting an “impeachment inquiry” without a formal bipartisan vote, with Democrats kicking GOP members out and hearings being held in secret with witnesses when there’s nothing classified in the hearing? With Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) making up what was said in the call and misleading about the contacts he and his staff had with the whistleblower. What do you call endless investigations in regard to Russia and now the Ukraine call when there’s far more to suggest that Democrats themselves should be investigated, if you applied the same standards?

Nobody is above the law.

This perhaps should be changed to no Republican is above the law. Because since the Obama administration, it has seemed that Democrats are often above the law, while Republicans like Trump are “below” the law.

John Brennan’s CIA spied on Congress and Brennan lied about it. The Obama administration was caught spying on reporters. Hillary Clinton sent and received classified information on a private server. No consequences for any of those few examples, there are many more.

Will there be consequences for the surveillance on the Trump team? The Ukraine meddling in the 2016 election? US Attorney John Durham is looking into it. The FISA abuse IG report is expected soon.

But given prior history, don’t bet the farm on anyone facing consequences.

While Jake Tapper Is Interviewing Kellyanne Conway, Jeff Zucker Tells Producer to Skip Commercials, Extend Interview, ‘Just F***ing Nail Her’

While yesterday’s full video from Project Veritas #Expose CNN series was relatively tame, today founder James O’Keefe reports an instance that is truly despicable.

While CNN host Jake Tapper was on the air interviewing White House Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway, CNN President Jeff Zucker enters the control room and tells the show’s executive producer to skip commercials, extend the interview from seven minutes to 25, and to “just f***ing nail her.”

The whistleblower, Cary Poarch, donned his hidden camera and recorded his exchange with CNN Media Coordinator Christian Sierra. He asked Sierra, “So Jeff Zucker runs the show?”

Sierra responded by saying, “Jeff Zucker runs the show. He made, he will personally go into the control room. and if Jake Tapper’s interviewing Kellyanne Conway, he went into the control room during that interview and he was like, keep going and keep going. Ask the questions. We’ll pass the commercial breaks. Keep going…I mean they turned a seven minute interview into a 25 minute interview.”

Poarch asked why.

Sierra said, “Because Jeff Zucker personally got on the phone with the Executive Producer of Tapper’s show.”

Poarch asked what was happening.

Sierra replied, “Oh, he got into his ear. He was interviewing Kellyanne Conway and it was a tough exchange. She was arguing back and forth with Jake Tapper and Zucker told them in the ear piece, keep going, keep going, keep going. Don’t stop you guys.”

Poarch said, “Cause you were jamming her up.”

“Yeah.”

Sierra is referring to an exchange between Tapper and Conway over the North Korean hostages. Sierra felt this treatment of Conway was fine because “she lies all the time.”

This clip is from Part 3 of the Expose which O’Keefe plans on Thursday. Maybe O’Keefe thought releasing the whole video would be overshadowed by coverage of the Democratic Debate.

Part 1 was interesting, part 2, a disappointment. We’ll see what the full part 3 brings us. If there’s anything that’s interesting, I’ll post it.

Leftist Group is DEMANDING That Democrats Name Who They Would Appoint To Supreme Court

The Left wants a list of who POTUS candidates would put in this building. 

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, even if it involves progressives copying Donald Trump.

Ripping a page right out of Donald Trump’s election playbook from 2016, the group Demand Justice has called for all the Democrats running for President declare publicly who that would nominate out of the handy dandy list they provided.

How convenient and very copy cat-ish of Trump 3 years ago.

According to The Washington Post

Democratic presidential contenders are coming under increased pressure from their base to take a page from Donald Trump’s 2016 playbook and release a shortlist of potential Supreme Court nominees — one part of a larger strategy from party activists to make the courts a central issue in the 2020 race.

Demand Justice, a group founded to counteract the conservative wing’s decades-long advantage over liberals in judicial fights, will release a list of 32 suggested Supreme Court nominees for any future Democratic president as they ramp up their push for the 2020 contenders to do the same.

The slate of potential high court picks includes current and former members of Congress, top litigators battling the Trump administration’s initiatives in court, professors at the nation’s top law schools and public defenders. Eight are sitting judges. They have established track records in liberal causes that Demand Justice hopes will energize the liberal base.

Seems like the progressives have FINALLY learned the lesson of paying some attention to the third branch of the government.

Now you can go ahead and take a look at that list and if you are like me, be absolutely puzzled by who all those people are. Lucky for us commoners, Carrie Severino from the Judicial Crisis Network just yesterday wrote a piece over at National Review called Demand Justice’s SCOTUS List Is Too Extreme Even for Obama that helps give us an idea of the backgrounds of these folks.

From the article…

Demand Justice’s list has 32 names on it. Only four of those are Obama-nominated judges. Shockingly, only eight have any judicial experience at all! While President Trump’s list of Supreme Court nominees currently includes 24 individuals, of whom 23 are experienced federal or state judges, the extremists at Demand Justice have clearly taken a different tack. Their list — which they are lobbying Democratic candidates to adopt — is wholly consumed by far-left activism and identity politics.

They see the courts as their ticket to implementing their radical policy agenda, which includes gutting the First and Second Amendments, establishing a right to illegal immigration and abortion on demand straight through birth, and destroying our economy by imposing burdensome regulations on everyone from Main Street to Wall Street.

When I first read this I thought, well maybe the Obama nominated judges that were confirmed don’t have enough seasoning yet. Then further on reading, I find out that 24 of them don’t have ANY JUDICIAL EXPERIENCE at all.

Did no one pay attention during the Harriet Miers fiasco under Bush 43?

So the left has put together a list of people that they want on the court that the vast majority have ZERO experience on the bench. They are straight-up activists. I actually admire Demand Justice brazen truthfulness here in trying to push this on the Dems.

Severino commented on twitter about how the candidates when finally asked ran from the subject and tried to change the subject like it was the plague.

What this tells me is that the left is organizing to do the same thing conservatives have done but the candidates are not focused on this at the stage of the game they are currently in. This might change after a nominee is picked but for now, it looks like they are more interested in impeachment than who they would put onto the court.

That works for me.
