Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to “shut up” during Lieutenant Colonel and National Security Council official Alexander Vindman’s closed-door testimony as part of the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump. The tense exchange came as Republican counsel asked Vindman about the identity of the so-called “whistleblower” who raised concerns to the intelligence community regarding President Trump’s July 25th telephone conversation with the leader of Ukraine. “Hey Mr. Meadows, he’s the chairman. He finishes,” Swalwell said to Meadows, in reference to House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (C-A), who is leading the House Democrats’ impeachment probe.

Both Chairman Schiff-for-brains and FORMER Presidential candidate Swalwell are from California. Sometimes our Californian Congress-critters are indistinguishable from the "deposits" found on San Francisco streets...

Swalwell's opinion of himself is not matched by reality. He needs to be slapped hard, often, and by someone who knows how.

The buffoon Democrats like Swalwell, Schiff, Waters and Pelosi are all from the wrecked state of Californicatate. These people are a joke, and how they got elected to Congress is a reflection on just how ignorant people in their districts are.

The 20th century tended to define progress in terms of material goods. In 1920 Lenin confidently declared that “Communism is Soviet government plus the electrification of the whole country.” Earthly paradise was attainable. It would take only a few Five Year Plans to get there. But even then people suspected the end game required more than that, a point made in a 1960s Twilight Zone episode entitled "A Nice Place to Visit." A small-time hood called Henry Valentine dies running from the cops and wakes up where his every thuggish desire is gratified. It soon palls and Valentine wants to leave Heaven and go to "the other place,"

I’m starting to wonder whether Elizabeth Warren is another Karl Rove/Steve Bannon dirty trick—a plant inside the Democratic Party with the perfect appeal to make the party sign up for the biggest political suicide note since the Labour Party decided to run on unilateral disarmament against Margaret Thatcher in 1983. (Labour lost in a historic landslide.) Warren’s Medicare-for-All will depend apparently on a 6 percent wealth tax on the super-rich, up from a previously proposed 3 percent. (Funny how the tax rate is rising already.) Here’s a riddle. Let’s just take Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates, each worth something like $100 billion in round numbers.

"California," argues Victor Davis Hanson, is "becoming pre-modern" despite ballooning government solutions. Like fictional pre-modern societies, it is becoming a two-tier society; a landscape of fantastical castles amid a sea of peasants. It is as if the technologically sophisticated components of the Golden State were creating its shadow of poor, homeless, drug-addicted and unskilled populations. (Snip) Yet in some respects, not only California but the whole global world is morphing into a similar two-tier arrangement. This may be driven by something called knowledge inequality. The processes by which a society produced its goods and governed itself were once common knowledge to a large percentage of the population.

Last week, in the span of two days, St. Petersburg police touted the arrest of five teens and the recovery of five stolen cars. Officers booked teens ages 15 to 18 on charges of auto burglary, auto theft and violating juvenile probation. Records show at least two of them had been arrested for stealing cars earlier this month. The juvenile car theft phenomenon is alive and well in Pinellas County. But according to a new study by the Caruthers Institute, a nonpartisan St. Petersburg think tank, officials may not be thinking about it the right way. The problem isn’t so much crime,

Earlier this week, the Big Sky Conference named a male runner as the female cross-country athlete of the week. Jonathan Eastwood (yes, I'm deadnaming, sue me) previously competed on the men's team but joined the women's cross-country team at the University of Montana this fall. By joining the women's team and competing under the name June Eastwood, he became the first "transgender" athlete to compete on an NCAA Division I women’s running team—which is likely the only reason he was given the honor. [Tweet] According to Western Journal, "Eastwood has not finished below seventh in any of the University of Montana’s races this fall."

Pharmaceutical companies are taking the blame for the opioid epidemic in America. We’ve all heard the narrative: Americans become addicted to pills prescribed by irresponsible doctors and peddled by unscrupulous drug companies. Many die of an overdose. There’s no denying that this occurs. However, a new study from Massachusetts strongly suggests that it is not the main reason for the opioid epidemic. The study found: "Prescription opioids were detected in postmortem toxicology reports of fewer than half of the decedents; when opioids were prescribed at the time of death, they were commonly not detected in postmortem toxicology reports. . .The major proximal contributors to opioid-related overdose deaths in Massachusetts

CLEARWATER — Gertrude Zullinger woke up on Monday morning to about 10 calls from concerned neighbors. Somebody had entered the three buildings of the 55-and-older Imperial Pines complex — where Zullinger is president of the condo association — and hung copies of the Church of Scientology’s Freedom Magazine on all 168 doorknobs. “We have gates. Each building has a lobby that’s locked,” Zullinger said. “They felt violated. They were very upset about it.” One day after the Tampa Bay Times published an investigation showing companies tied to Scientology had bought much of the property in the center of downtown Clearwater, the church responded by spreading its own story across the city.

In a shocking twist of fate, an experienced Arkansas hunter was attacked by a deer he had just shot in the woods on Tuesday evening. The hunter later died after suffering puncture wounds from the deer's antlers. Officials said 66-year-old Thomas Alexander was hunting in Yellville, Arkansas on Tuesday when he shot a buck using a muzzleloader. As he approached the animal, believing it was dead, it attacked him. "He apparently went over to the buck and it got up and attacked him," said Keith Stephens, the chief of communications for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

"It's a partisan impeachment, clearly," he continued. "All impeachments, I guess, are political. But, this one's 100 percent political and it's going to establish a new norm for America that I think is bad for us.”

Joe Morrissey was jailed and lost his license to practice law after being convicted of having sex with his 17-year-old secretary. He pled guilty to a misdemeanor in the ensuing court case and served for only three months in a “work-release term.” He was also forced to resign from his seat in the Virginia House of Delegates, but then ran again in the special election to retake the seat and was re-elected.

Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg on Friday released a set of economic proposals that includes free public college for people living in households that make less than $100,000 per year. Under Mr. Buttigieg’s plan, families of college students that earn up to $100,000 wouldn’t pay any public college tuition. Those making between $100,000 and $150,000 would receive reduced tuition benefits. That’s a contrast to proposals from 2020 candidates such as Sens. Bernard Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who want to make public colleges and universities tuition-free for everyone.

Lieutenant colonel Alexander Vindman was reportedly reprimanded by a superior when it became known that he repeatedly made fun of Americans; American culture; and, as he said, "Americans not being educated or worldly." He did this in front of foreign diplomats, constantly. No wonder he remained an Obama loyalist and has tried to undercut President Trump. After all, Obama considered himself first and foremost "a citizen of the world" and did not find anything exceptional in America in and of itself. President Trump loves America and is representative of a patriotic heartland mindset. After all, Trump believes in America first.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson began his show by asking Sessions point-blank: "Are you running for Senate?" "Yes, we'll file our papers tomorrow," Sessions replied.

This notion is a contradiction of Church teaching and the Gospels.
