House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff rejected the GOP’s request that the panel summon Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, to testify at public impeachment hearings next week. The California Democrat also signaled he will not agree to some of the other witnesses Republicans requested Saturday, including Alexandra Chalupa, a former Democratic National Committee staffer who Republicans said worked with the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C., “to try to get political dirt on then-candidate Trump’s campaign.”

Something Schiff needs to think about: Those "sham witnesses" will probably be the first ones subpoenaed in a senate trial should the house vote to impeach the president. Witness #1 should be Schiff.

Maybe he'll allow the Republicans to call one of the janitors in the House to the stand, just for the heck of it. Will the so-called ''media'' have a problem with this? Is a five pound canary fat?

Schiff os out of control and is nearing time for the men in white coats to come in and escort him out of the House. Clearly, he has lost all perspective if he ever had any. Apparently, he is a fan of soviet style justice and is pushing this travesty down the American people’s throats because he can. Who will stop him? He is making a mockery of justice and the majority of lawyers are silently consenting. So much for their vaunted reverence for the rule of law and Constitution. Who can stop this when a purely partisan hack can railroad the President of the United States without due process? I understand this is not a legal proceeding but how many Americans know the difference? The democrats will give it the appearance of a serious impeachment hearing without due process for the President. One jacked up side of the story will be told and there will be no rebuttal. How in the name of everything that is Holy, can this go on in this country? Where are the champions in the legal profession that will speak out in defense of simple fairness? This is an abomination and we will rue the day that this was allowed to happen. The democrats are destroying this country. When the democrats started planning impeachment 19 minutes after a duly elected President was Inaugurated, there is something very sinister going on. Schiff is consumed with hated and his whole darn party is allowing him to run roughshod over the Constitution, rule of law and precedent set for prior impeachment hearings. This is nothing more than a running coup d’etat.

Every time Schifferbrains rejects a witness, it will scream to the country, “Coverup! Coverup!” So, go ahead, pencil neck. You can try to hide, but it’s not going to work.

As #1 stated the dems should be informed that any witnesses that are rejected by Schiff will be high on the list of Senate depositions. Given the short memories of the media and public those last interviews will have the greatest impact. I would start with Mr Schiff

The fact is that President Trump NEVER used the words, "dig up dirt" on the Bidens in his 'phone call to Ukraine. It was Representative Schiff who used those words when he gave us his parody of the President's call. The chattering classes keep repeating that false premise - but that's on them. And - not to be rude - but one never needed to dig up dirt; it is all around for anyone to see. It is important, though, that the President knows what problems he will be dealing with in another country and that includes corruption.

They crucified Jesus didn’t they. Schiff would be swinging the hammer while Pelosi and Schumer would hold his hands and feet. This is Trumps political crucifixion. How ever it will not kill him but propel him to absolute greatness and in the end Trump will slay his enemies. For God is with him.

The Dems are forgetting the lesson that Harry Reid learned the hard way. Someday the political roles will be reversed, and the Republicans can make up the rules to accomplish their goals against the Dems. The left will yell and scream, but it will fall on deaf ears.

Three leading Democratic presidential candidates recently endorsed a new policy regarding U.S. military aid to Israel: It should be conditioned on Israel embracing policies toward the Palestinians favored by American progressives. At the J Street conference last week, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) demanded that Israel "fundamentally change" its approach to terrorist-controlled Gaza, adding, "I think it is fair to say that some [U.S. military aid to Israel] should go right now into humanitarian aid in Gaza." Israeli officials believe such moves would enable Hamas to import more weapons and lead to another war. South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg called for cutting aid if Israel annexes the West Bank,

In the aftermath of a recent Florida self-defense shooting, female gun owners argued that the AR-15 provides specific advantages to women for home defense, vehemently rejecting the views of gun-control activists who insist the firearm is unnecessary. Speaking with the Washington Free Beacon on Friday, five female firearm owners and advocates said the AR-15 platform offers several features that are ideal for women specifically. Robyn M. Sandoval, executive director of A Girl & A Gun Women's Shooting League, said the rifle is both more effective and safer for female shooters.
Why Study Latin? 32 replies

Oxford professor Nicola Gardini urges people to read and study Latin. He believes that Latin is the antidote for the modern age, which seems transfixed by the spontaneous, the easy, and the ephemeral. His new book, Long Live Latin: The Pleasures of a Useless Language, argues that Latin combines truth and beauty with the timelessness of art. People should study Latin for all the reasons people should read literature. In his Confessions, St. Augustine (354–430 C.E.) “placed the learning of Latin under God’s purview,” Gardini writes. Augustine believed Latin drew a child closer to God, “the truest truth.” Gardini argues that Latin contains the logic and precision of math

If Adam Schiff were a prosecutor, his November 5 contribution to USA Today would violate rule 3.8(f) when he claimed (again) that he had secret evidence of a secret crime committed by the president. Our system of due process (as codified by this rule) recognizes that it’s unfair for an accuser to use newspapers to claim access to secret evidence of a target’s criminal conduct. This isn’t something that was allowed to happen in past impeachment efforts and Americans should be skeptical of Schiff’s case when he’s not giving the president’s team equal access to the evidence of the supposed “crime.”

Representative Adam B. Schiff’s (D-Calif.) impeachment inquiry is a real danger to every Democrat associated with it. Less than two years ago, Schiff’s libertine idea of truth showed itself. Jay Whig called him out then for misrepresenting the nature and purposes of the independence of the FBI. Schiff went on to claim that, as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he had seen evidence that Trump had colluded with the Russians, with the implication that the Mueller report would expose this. Schiff was caught in this lie, spectacularly, when Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed precisely the opposite of what Schiff had said he knew for a fact. There was never

As I’ve noted before, I didn’t vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 GOP primary. However, I eagerly voted for him over Hillary Clinton (and everyone else on the ballot) in the 2016 general election. I almost certainly will do so again in 2020. President Trump has been a very pleasant surprise as President of the United States. He has a long list of excellent accomplishments that have made me even more eager to vote for him in 2020. Not the least of these accomplishments is President Trump’s fulfilling his promise to remake the federal judiciary by appointing -- and having confirmed -- conservative judges and justices.

That’s the choice for people in 13 cities and one county in California that have enacted new zoning codes encouraging or requiring all-electric new construction.

Twenty-one percent those polled, however, said they don’t know or don’t have an opinion. The poll comes as Bloomberg considers jumping into the Democratic presidential primary.

Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert were terrorists in the Weather Underground who murdered two police officers and a security guard during a 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored security car outside New York City.
