Democracy Dies In Darkness:
Adam Schiff Just Banned A GOP
Lawmaker From Attending Key
Ukrainegate Deposition

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 10/14/2019 3:59:03 PM

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., just banned a key Republican lawmaker from the deposition of a former anti-Trump national security official believed to be at the center of ongoing Ukraine proceedings, sources tell The Federalist. Schiff tossed Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., out of the deposition. Although the U.S. House of Representatives has not approved a resolution authorizing a formal impeachment investigation, House Democrats have nonetheless insisted that they have full authority to subpoena all documents and testimony they desire, even if specific committees lack the jurisdiction to demand particular information.


Will this stand?

I would have told Schiff to pound SAND, and sat in on the meeting. What's Schiff gonna do, arrest the Republican that IS ON the Comittee? This is so stupid it deserves a hard challenge!

I really hate to predic tthis, but... The U.S. Supreme Court has rendered some exquisitely bad decisions over its history. Dred Scott, Plessey v. Ferguson, Sweat v. Texas, but perhaps the worst was the 9-0 decision in the matter of Dollar Bill Clinton, when the USSC said a civil suit could proceed against a president during his term in office. Now I expect the USSC, with Chief Judas John Roberts leading the way, ruling that the fake subpoenas being issued by Schiff head, Cummings, and the little prince Nadler from NYC, must be obeyed by DJT. (The correct ruling would be that this is all a political matter, and the Court should stay out of it.) These are dark days for the Republic, my friends.

Two points (FTA): 1, According to the Congressional Research Service, formal impeachment proceedings are typically referred to the House Judiciary Committee. Gaetz sits on that committee; Schiff does not. The House has yet to approve a resolution granting broad impeachment investigative authority to any of its committees. 1. Several officials told The Federalist that they believe Fiona Hill, who was subpoenaed last week to share her knowledge of allegations of wrongdoing against Trump regarding a phone conversation he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25, is one of the unnamed sources for the anti-Trump whistleblower whose August 12 complaint fanned congressional impeachment fires. Hill was reportedly planning to testify about her knowledge of the ouster of Marie Yovanovitch, a controversial figure who was removed from her post as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine in May. Gaetz was on the right track with a committee chairperson who was absolutely doing the wrong thing. The fact that in #2 Fiona did not fight what was an unauthorized, outside of the law request to testify before Schiff & Co pretty much confirms that she was a #NeverTrumper in the WH if not one of the Rumorblower’s sources.

Schiff is entirely corrupt. Evil, lying person. There needs to be a really, really serious effort to "get" him. I'll bet he has some dirty laundry, there needs to be a well funded effort to make his life miserable, legally.

We need to start an Amendment that says the full house has to vote for impeachment inquiry and the vote has to be 2/3 of the House. Make the Banana Republic Dem party meet a real standard and not make up Schiff as it goes.

Shifty's Star Chamber is starting to look more and more like Piglousi's hearings on CommieCare where Republicans were locked out and prohibited from having a say. I'm surprised Piglousi didn't purge the republican's 100% vote against it from seeing the light of day. Stupid incompetent and lazy demonrats were even instructed by Piglousi to pass it to find out what's in it and like the Jim Jones followers they are, they did exactly that.

Rand Paul sharply criticized fellow Senate Republican Lindsey Graham for suggesting that U.S. troops should remain in northern Syria. "Lindsey Graham has been wrong about almost every foreign policy decision of the last two decades," the Kentucky senator said during a Tuesday morning appearance on MSNBC. "He was wrong about the Iraq War. The Iraq War was a mistake. It made Iran stronger, allowed more chaos, more instability, and more terrorism. He was wrong about the war in Libya. It lead to more chaos and more terrorism. He is wrong about this." Paul was referring to tweets from the South Carolina

I’m not sure what’s more jaw-dropping — the disdain Democratic presidential candidates have for rural Americans and their values, or their willingness to make it a centerpiece of their campaign to unseat Donald Trump. Did they learn nothing from 2016? Beto O’Rourke’s plans to confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens and to put churches out of business, combined with Elizabeth Warren’s stinging insult that conservative religious people are too ugly and backward to find a suitable mate, are good reminders that the national Democratic Party has simply abandoned rural and Middle America.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on Monday that the House “may not” vote to authorize the ongoing impeachment inquiry. Schiff argued that voting on the investigation would not stop Republican criticism of the process. His comments came during an interview at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, moderated by New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof. Democrats are reportedly lobbying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to hold a vote. Pelosi, however, has stressed that she does not intend to hold a floor vote on the impeachment probe.

Three employees at a North Carolina assisted living facility are accused of allowing elderly residents to fight one another, encouraging them to fight, and, in one case, assaulting a resident. Marilyn Latish McKey, 32; Tonacia Yvonne Tyson, 20; and Taneshia Deshawn Jordan, 26, have been arrested and charged, according to a police report. A report of elder abuse made to Winston-Salem police in June accused employees of allowing residents to fight one another, the police report said. Police and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services then learned that employees were also encouraging the fighting. One employee, police say, physically shoved a resident.

Secularism has become a religion based on freedom from personal responsibility, salvation attained by political activism and severe punishment of disobedience, U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr warned Friday in a speech at Notre Dame’s law school. While the new secular religion has inverted basic Christian morality, it has adopted practices such as inquisitions and excommunication to enforce its doctrine, Barr said: “One of the ironies, as some have observed, is that the secular project has, itself, become a religion, pursued with religious fervor. It has taken on all the trappings of religion – including inquisitions and excommunication.

I don’t think so.”

Madison, Wis.—The nation's largest independent spice retailer is peppering Facebook with ads calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Wisconsin-based Penzeys Spices spent nearly $100,000 on Facebook ads last week calling for Trump's impeachment, making it one of the largest social media spenders on impeachment to date. Facebook says Penzeys spent nearly $96,000 on ads supporting impeachment between Oct. 4 and Oct. 10. The Wisconsin State Journal reports Tuesday that one post generated 257,000 reactions, 55,000 comments and 45,000 shares. House Democrats are pursuing an impeachment inquiry to investigate Trump's suggestion that Ukraine investigate the business dealings of Joe Biden's

A new report by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee reaffirms what the White House refuses to accept: Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help then-candidate Donald Trump and to hurt his presidential rivals. The findings are alarming for the breadth of Russia’s operation, the Kremlin’s direct involvement and the ongoing threat posed by foreign meddling to American democracy. But perhaps more than anything, the report amounts to a bipartisan rebuke of the White House’s own disinformation campaign to shift the blame away from Russia. The committee, chaired by Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., released a second report this week that furthered the findings of America’s intelligence community

They envision “consent modules” added to sex robots that humans would engage with before sexual relations. Anco Peeters of Australia’s University of Wollongong and Pim Haselager, an associate professor at The Netherlands’ Radboud University, published a research article recently that made the case for “ethical” sex robots. In the article, which was highlighted this week by The College Fix, Haselager and Peeters propose that sex robots should have to consent prior to intercourse with their owners.

Additionally, he made a public promise that if his father, Joe Biden, wins the presidency, he will "forego all foreign work." Quite a lot to unpack here. Firstly, he's missing the point entirely. While President Trump's Ukraine phone call shined a bright light on Joe and Hunter Biden's corruption, the outrage was never about him working for a foreign company. It was about how he got those positions in the first place — with his father's power and status in the U.S. government.
