WHEN ADAM SCHIFF WAS OK WITH FOREIGN INTERFERENCE – INCLUDING UKRAINIAN INTERFERENCE – IN A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

It was two years ago.  Russian comedians Vladimir “Vovan” Kuznetzov and Alexey “Lexus” Stolyarov got through to Representative adam schiff (D-CA).  One of them, posing as Andriy Parubiy, the speaker of Ukraine’s parliament, told schiff he had really good dirt – the salacious kind – on President Trump. And, of course, schiff immediately told them it was...

ANOTHER STUPID TRUMP TWEET

I don’t blame Donald Trump for using social media to put out his messages.  If mainstream media were giving me over 90% negative coverage I would probably do the same. But that doesn’t mean the messages he puts out are appropriate…as proven by this one: Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 10h10 hours ago “Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats can’t put...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraph – a very short one, as you will see – comes to us from Sydney Ember and Katie Glueck’s article for the new york times, which reports on how Joe Biden is dealing with charges that he used his position as Vice President to make his troubled (to say the least) son, Hunter, a rich man: No evidence has emerged that Mr. Biden intentionally acted to aid his son...

THE KAMALA HARRIS “DESPERATE FOR RELEVANCE” STRATEGY

Senator Kamala Harris was one of the half-dozen or so Great Anti-Trump Hopes given a huge media boost…only to be discarded like fish bones for the next media favorite.  Her poll numbers plunged accordingly and now she is not far from “all other” status.  And she doesn’t like it. So how does Senator Harris regain her status as a major candidate for the Democrat...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs – and they are stunning in either their obtuseness, their assumption that the public is a bunch of numbskulls, or both, come to us from Paul Sonne, Michael Kranish and Matt Viser’s article for the Washington Post. In their write-up of how Joe and Hunter Biden play into the Democrat attempt to impeach President Donald Trump, they grace us with the...

SARAH JEONG: GONE (A YEAR TOO LATE)

Last year, I canceled my long-time subscription to the new york times. Though I had become more and more unhappy with the times’ degeneration from an at least somewhat neutral source of information to a propaganda arm of Democrats and the hard left (often one and the same), I was still getting it delivered…until the times hired sarah jeong and placed her on its editorial board. sarah...

THE LEGALITY OF DONALD TRUMP’S INVESTIGATION REQUEST

Here’s a little something I bet you haven’t seen in amy mainstream media… …which I pulled from a site called dcwhispers.com: It is the first two pages of a treaty with Ukraine, signed by then-President Bill Clinton, which agrees that the countries will cooperate on criminal matters:   “To the Senate of the United States: With a view to receiving the...

HILLARY II: THE SIGNS ARE THERE

If you think Hillary Clinton’s 2016 debacle finally put her into presidential retirement… …you better read this excerpt from the latest article by “Tyler Durden” at zerohedge.com: Based on bookies’ bets and a few recent actions, speculation is once again starting to grow that Hillary Clinton may be about to enter the Democratic Party presidential nominee...

IMPEACHMENT AS OPPOSITION: NOW IT’S KAVANAUGH

The impeachment insanity continues. Now Kamala Harris, desperately trying to resurrect her presidential campaign, is demanding that impeachment proceedings should begin on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. To this end, Harris – a Senator, not House member – wrote to Jerrold Nadler, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, which starts: “I write to urge the House Judiciary...

THE GREATEST “WEEK IN PICTURES” OF THEM ALL

As regular readers know, I have made a habit of putting up samples from Steven Hayward’s The Week In Pictures feature at powerlineblog.com – with a request that you click on the link I supply to see the rest of them…and, of course, give Mr. Hayward his well-deserved web traffic. For whatever it’s worth, I consider this week’s compilation the greatest of them all.  I...

HOW DOES A SECOND-HAND INFORMATION ACCUSATION BECOME AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE?

The so-called “whistleblower”, who claims President Trump acted improperly during a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky, did not hear the conversation.  He heard about it from someone else. That, in a sane world, would end the issue right there.  How can an anonymous “whistleblower” make a credible accusation about something he/she heard about from...

A QUESTION FOR OUR IMPEACHMENT-HUNGRY MEDIA

I have a question for our media, most of which spent two years clearly expecting – often outwardly rooting for – President Trump to pay for his “collusion” with Russia. What if this “hot microphone” conversation had been oveheard? As he was leaning toward the Russian official, Trump was overheard asking for time — “particularly with missile defense”...

CNN’S LATEST LIE

It isn’t easy to keep up with the fake news and lies that emanate from CNN, but every now and then I like to keep you apprised of them. One such instance was this past Wednesday, after the transcript of President Trump’s telephone call with The Ukraine’s new President, Volodymyr Zelensky was made public. This exchange, which I pulled from Nicholas Fondacaro’s article at...

ELIZABETH WARREN’S FAR LEFT BET

The adage – and it is an accurate, if cynical one – is that you appeal to the hardline base to get nominated, but then veer back to the center for the general election. But can someone explain to me how Elizabeth Warren veers back from this –  which she tweeted after CNBC reported Wall Street Democrat donors were warning that her candidacy would cause them either to sit things...
