Senator Lindsey Graham has created a new reality for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.Graham has written a powerful resolution which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell joined in co-sponsoring. Together they have attracted 50 co-sponsors – which means with Vice President Pence supporting them they would win a vote to dismiss any phony impeachment from the House that failed to meet a key standard of fairness. The resolution: “calls on the House of Representatives, prior to proceeding any further with its impeachment investigation into President Trump, to vote to initiate a formal impeachment inquiry

Talk about "coulda been a contenduh." Newtie could have been one of the great American statesmen - - but he tossed it all away with a tawdry private life and a penchant for the weird. If he had used his fine mind to persevere as Speaker of the House - - he really could have been something special. What a waste.

It is past time for these boring analyses. I am done with that. The Republicans need to do more than talk. It is time to take the offense. It is time to file lawsuits in the courts. It is time to investigate the Congressional investigators. Quit giving us these lame, meaningless talking points. It has been 3 years. Talking is getting us nowhere.

At this point does it really make any difference what Pelosi does or says, as the leftist and liberal Democrats announced about 28 minutes after President Trump was sworn into office that they intended undo the 2016 election by removing Trump from office through impeachment proceedings? Clearly those Democrats will impeach Trump for wearing the wrong colored socks. In the end it will be up to the wimpy Republican Senators whether they will have the intestinal fortitude to back President Trump, who is being held to such a high standard, and by setting a precedent, that no future Republican President could meet and survive a term in office without being impeached and removed from office anytime in the future that the Democrats control the House of Representatives, or whether those mostly wimpy Republican Senators will cave to the Democrat’s demands and commit political suicide for themselves and the Republican Party by voting with the Democrats to remove Trump from office.

Kanye West’s Conversion Could

On Friday, anyone with a pulse would have seen the news of the release of Kanye West’s newest album, Jesus Is King. It comes after months of news stories about West’s very public conversion to Christianity, a Christianity that bears no resemblance to the vague spiritualism of Moral Therapeutic Deism that is often associated with celebrity conversions.The lyrics to each song in Jesus Is King are shockingly Christian. It is not an album of feel-good Christian spirituality aimed primarily as a message of uplift. West co-wrote and sang the hit “Jesus Walks” on his debut album The College Dropout (2004), but Jesus Is King is different.

For a town that leaks like a sieve, Washington has done an astonishingly effective job keeping from the American public the name of the anonymous “whistleblower" who triggered impeachment proceedings against President Trump — even though his identity is an open secret inside the Beltway.More than two months after the official filed his complaint, pretty much all that’s known publicly about him is that he is a CIA analyst who at one point was detailed to the White House and is now back working at the CIA. But the name of a government official fitting that description — Eric Ciaramella — has been raised privately in impeachment depositions,

Since late Tuesday the nation has been deafened by media outlets declaring that diplomat William Taylor provided “damning” congressional testimony involving President Trump’s actions toward Ukraine. The New York Times, for example, produced this breathless headline: “Donald Trump’s Quid Pro Quo Is Now a Smoking Gun.” Evidently, the “reporters” responsible for this story failed to read Taylor’s opening statement. It consists almost entirely of hearsay, shows that he wasn’t on the fabled phone call between presidents Trump and Zelensky, and confirms that he was assured by high-ranking Trump administration officials that the president sought no quid pro quo arrangement with Ukraine in exchange for aid:

It's a new three-way race in Iowa. Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who was initially seen as a long-shot presidential contender, has surged within striking distance of former vice president Joe Biden and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, a Suffolk University/USA TODAY Poll finds. Biden, long viewed as the Democratic frontrunner, is faltering in the wake of a debate performance last week that those surveyed saw as disappointing. The poll, taken Wednesday through Friday, put Biden at 18%, Warren at 17% and Buttigieg at 13% among 500 likely Democratic caucusgoers.Those standings reflect significant changes

Earlier this year an anonymous threat forced a D.C. theater to cancel a production of “FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers.” The play, produced by Phelim McAleer, featured a reading of texts from disgraced FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.The two are enmeshed in the Russia collusion hoax that kept the country hostage for north of two years. An element of the Left, fearful the play’s message would get out to the masses, threatened violence against the theater in question.The theater’s management opted to cancel its contract to host the play. Team McAleer was able to find another venue, but it still sent a chill through the theatrical community

President Donald Trump's key immigration rule change, to discourage immigrants from relying on public health programs, food stamps, housing assistance and other welfare, got derailed on Friday by three federal judges. Their decisions, blocking Trump's rule from going into effect, are wins for Democrats and immigration lobbyists. America's poor are the losers. Our country needs to take care of its own needy first. Trump's proposed rule would make it harder for immigrants who use welfare to qualify for green cards and permanent residence, and it would give preference to immigrants who fend for themselves.

Ronan Farrow’s new book “Catch and Kill” reveals new allegations of sexual misconduct against NBC News chief Andrew Lack, whom Farrow also accused of spiking his Harvey Weinstein story while at NBC. At the height of the Me Too movement in 2017, men in powerful positions were black-balled, fired, and excommunicated at the mere mention of an allegation, even without corroborating evidence. But unlike those men, Lack’s employer is standing behind him, and he’s refusing to go anywhere.

In a week when Republican anger over President Trump’s foreign policy managed to supplant the Democrats’ impeachment push in top news headlines, Trump sought refuge in a state that looks and feels just about as different as can be from Washington, D.C. Trump made the 12th visit to Texas of his presidency, basking Thursday night in the adulation of sign-waving supporters who formed a sea of red “Make America Great Again” hats sprinkled with white “Trump 2020” ten-gallons. “I’m thrilled to be here deep in the heart of Texas,” the president told the roaring, 20,000-strong crowd at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Psychodrama Of the Press

We are living through a phantasmagoric psychodrama generated by the dishonest national political press. This is the press whose Joe Scarborough of MSNBC did not show some of President Trump’s responses to his enemies because of “concern” for the president’s family, as he “seems to have lost his mind.” This is a new frontier in American journalism, where a television news commentator who hates the president wishes to spare the president’s family a rerun of his entirely rational denunciations of his enemies. The House of Representatives began considering impeachment because an anonymous Democrat and former political associate of Vice President Biden received a hearsay account of a conversation

Anonymous accusations have been regarded with suspicion by honorable leaders for at least two millennia. Even the Romans rejected the use of such allegations against Christians. Indeed, the Emperor Trajan explicitly admonished one of his provincial governors against doing so: “Anonymously posted accusations ought to have no place in any prosecution. For this is both a dangerous kind of precedent and out of keeping with the spirit of our age.” The Democrats of our era aren’t troubled by such scruples, it would seem. In fact, they have used just such an accusation as the pretext for their “impeachment inquiry,” and it is indeed dangerous.

"A woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet, because of what I know about our children's future," she added, apparently choking back tears. She was giving her keynote address at the C40 World Mayors Summit which recently approved a global version of her "Green New Deal."

Because this is not politics, this is life, this is morality. … This is real.”

Dick Morris, who advised Bill Clinton in his 1978 campaign for Arkansas governor, and again in his 1996 White House re-election effort, says it is his “feeling” that Hillary wants to run. “She feels entitled to do it,” he said on John Catsimatidis’ Sunday morning radio show from New York. “She feels compelled to do it.

The only news that matters coming out of Alexander Vindman’s Tuesday impeachment testimony is that he once again proved President Trump has done absolutely nothing impeachable, or even close to it. Vindman, who is obviously all wound up to overturn the 2016 election and have Trump removed from office, could only testify that the transcript of Trump’s now-famous July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky was missing a couple of details. Boy, that sounds ominous! Did Trump conceal the true nature of his phone call??? Did Zelensky also aid in the cover-up by repeatedly claiming he never felt pressured by Trump???? Bombshell time, amirite? Except, no.

Pelsoi said the impeachment inquiry is consistent to what the Founding Fathers had envisioned for the country and the separate, coequal branches of the government. "In the here and now, we are keeping the republic from a president who says Article II, says I can do whatever I want. Not so. And if so, if you think that is so and you act upon that belief that is in violation of the Constitution of the United States. And so we will proceed
