For dignity’s sake,
Jim Jordan, put on a jacket

Of course Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) took his seat Wednesday morning, at the opening of the public impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill, wearing nothing but his shirtsleeves. No suit jacket. That’s how Jordan dresses. It’s his power move. His sartorial chest thump. All the other members of the House Intelligence Committee turned up in suits and ties or other business attire. But not Jordan. Everyone else was willing to offer at least a symbolic nod to decorous formality, to that old-fashioned notion of civility. Jordan announced himself as the man who was itching to rumble. He was the guy who came not to do

Robin, it seems that you are the only one that it bothers. Everyone knows that Jim Jordan is performing as a pro it is totally freaking out the Washington Post.

Lemme guess. The attire of the drag queen, however, that stormed into the hearings - totally appropriate according toThe Post.

I don't believe that there is a "proper" attire demanded of a Kangaroo Court. I am glad that Jim Jordan is there to protect our rights and I don't care if he shows up in wrestling tights quite frankly.

Is that a RULE ? Maybe Robin ought to visit the Hqs of the largest tech companies and notice what the employees there wear on the job; or maybe she ought to find a real problem to write about and stop just filling space. Rep Jordan works for us! and we are happy with his performane.

Robin is just avoiding dealing with how Jim Jordan, the CHAMPion (for you, Robin) wrestler, almost singlehandedly took down the Nancy and Schiff Clown Show. It's a coping mechanism, and she must have really hated how every Republican on the committee tried to give the NEW guy, the substitute (think old school TV wrestlers slapping hands as they sub in and out) some of their time. Why? Because they all knew he'd kick butt every chance he got. He did so much in their time that he started waving off the offers of time, as if he were saying. I'm good. Poor Robin; she probably got no sleep last night.

I couldn't help but notice that Schiff was "properly" dressed....with jacket and tie. In my humble opinion that didn't make anything that came out of his mouth more important. He might as well have been sitting there in his underwear. Glad I don't have a relationship with anyone like the fool who wrote this piece!

"Presumably, he doesn’t consider sitting alongside his colleagues during a matter of national importance to be a situation that deserves his high regard." Our neighbor replaced her "Obama" bumper sticker with "Vote For A Clown, You Get A Circus" or something very close to those words. Well, I don't consider this impeachment thing a matter of national importance. If I felt that Donald Trump had done something wrong, I would consider it. Not now. The only clown and circus we have is Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats.

I also wish Congressman Jordan would occasionally wear a jacket, just for decorum. But as upset as Robin Givhans is that Jordan isn't dressed up enough, that's how upset she was years ago when she complained that Justice Roberts' wife had dressed herself and her children "as if for Sunday School", in other words, in their very best for his swearing-in. We readers understand that what Jordan, Mrs. Roberts and the Roberts children are wearing or not wearing has zero to really do with Ms. Givhans' melt-downs.

If the bug-eyed, pencil-necked Schiff was sitting there wearing a clown outfit, goofy Robin would write that it just shows what the esteemed Congressman Schiff thinks about all of the eeevile things President Trump has done for three years. If the Rats and their hand maidens in the so-called ''media'' aren't moaning, groaning and complaining about something any Republican has done or said, they're not happy. And when was the last time you saw a happy Rat?

He is a warrior, and we are at war. Everyone else thinks its a game. We are not playing. We warriors will dress so as to be able to kill you, should you have the audacity to continue your escalation of stupidity and dishonor of our sacred constitution. Many have laid down their lives for the freedom afforded in our Declaration, our Constitution, and our Nation, which you are trampling with your disrespect of our laws, our judicial system, and our sacred elections. We know that sitting at the table to reason with you is pointless, and that you will lie, connive, and manipulate, and escalate without regard to human life (as in Arkancide, Epstien, Benghazi, Bergdahl, and Seth Page). Jim Jordan is there for business, he's got your number. He ain't playing. You deserve death, but out of respect for our law, we are going to take you through the process of our justice system -- and justice will prevail.

Please keep writing articles like this Robin. It illustrates the ridiculous positions the WAPO uses its clout to lie about. Fashion does not negate truth. $90,000 a month for a do nothing job is something even Tony Soprano would not try. Greed overwhelms intellect, and once exposed all these Elites are scared to death. You're just the ineffective tool they're using to try and shift the focus away from their corrupt and traitorous acts. Not a useful idiot....I won't give you that much credit. Or maybe you are being useful, since in a way, you're bringing to light the truth by focusing on attire. Are his shoes more important than Biden selling influence?

Keep in mind that just a few days ago, the MSM restarted last year's smear campaign against Jordan, claiming he "turned a blind eye" to sexual abuse of Ohio State wrestlers. Critics say it was "common knowledge" that the team physician from the 1970s to the late 1990s was molesting the wrestlers. For a time, Jordan was an assistant coach for the team. The MSM is again smearing young Jordan, who could not have done so anonymously, for not reporting abuse he says he didn't know about. This is the same MSM that insists a veteran CIA operative caught coordinating with team Schiff to take down President Trump over a phone call he he did not hear, is entitled to remain anonymous. The whiny column today over Jordan's shirtsleeves might be a new low in journalism. Jordan's confidence doesn't come from wearing a suit. His confidence comes from doing his homework and having his facts straight, even when the people he questions do not. Yesterday, he dressed as he often does, ready for battle. As for showing respect, he gave Schifty's kangaroo court all the respect it deserved.

I have always found this to be the case in my end of the business world. The real workers attend meetings in shirtsleeves because they do not have the time to waste on formality. The ones with the suits, vests and ties are the poseurs. They won't even leave their desks to go to the rest room without putting their jacket on. Jordan gets extra points from me for this.

Schiff started out the hearings by stating that his witnesses would prove bribery (remember when it was quid pro quo but seconds before the impeachment started it changed to bribery?). The start witness was Bill Taylor, the one the Marxists claimed would prove that Trump committed bribery because of the 55 days between the phone call and the military aid. In his short sleeve shirt, Jim Jordan questioned Taylor about the delays. Bill Taylor, who Schiff said would prove bribery did the exact opposite and of course, the media noticed Jordan's short sleeve shirt and called him an attack dog. It was game, set and match disproving the entire reason that there even is an impeachment taking place. But, Jordan is wearing a short sleeved shirt and not dressed the way WaPo thinks he ought to be dressed. Sadly, most Americans will agree with WaPo and are utterly clueless that Jordan eviscerated the entire reasons for the impeachment in less than two minutes, by the way. My God, we are a stupid nation that does not deserve the freedoms we afterburn to destroy.

A jacket doesn't make a person better or more professional. Jim Jordan will not conform to the dictates of the Washington media mob. Besides this side show didn't deserve any respect or dignity, especially the way it was presented in secrecy. Perhaps, the Republicans next time should all come in flip flops to symbolize Schiff and the absurdity of this concocted fund raising scheme by the Dems to smear President Trump and to raise money.

Omy, omy — where to start? Maybe start here — does anyone, anywhere, anytime have any interest at all on what a fashion writer has to offer on the hearings? Right! I thought so. But since we’re here, let’s examine Miss Robin and her words — because she claims to be a wordsmith. (WAPO — Impressive!) a. “The former wrestling coach has defined himself . . . “ — Partially right. There are thousands of wrestling ‘coaches’. Denny Hastert was one. It would be more accurate to describe Jim Jordan as a two-time NCAA national wrestling champion. Not too many of those in Congress. Jordan may be the only one. b. “When his fellow Republicans put Jordan in for a third round, he skipped the questions altogether and just delivered a monologue on the injustice of the entire proceeding.” — Wrong again. He didn’t skip the questions. When another Republican offered him time, he had only 14 seconds left. No time to start a dialog. — “. . . just delivered a monologue . . .” Wrong. Jordan just smiled and acknowledged the 14 seconds wasn’t enough time. c. “When he got into the ring for his second round, Jordan was speaking so fast that he was swallowing his words. It was an “invesgashun," not an investigation.” — Do you have a hearing problem, Miss Robin? Or are you an expert on speech too? America understood him. You did not.

This Robin person did not seem to be bothered when the Chicago punk ran around in flip flops, little shorts and a t-shirt in the White House. He was spotted in similar little shorts, flip flops and a loose open shirt holding his coffee cup as if he was begging at an airport in Hawaii. Why pick on Jordan?? It's become his trade mark and this soviet style lynching party headed by bug eyed liar Schief in DC hardly merits any decent attire!

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar wants you to think her struggles to gain momentum in her presidential bid are due to her sex — and the bias of the American public. The Democrat took a swipe at fellow White House contender Pete Buttigieg, who leads her, by saying the South Bend mayor likely wouldn’t have garnered the support he has — given his light resume (in her opinion) — if he were a woman. Last weekend, Klobuchar doubled down on her thesis in an interview with CNN. “I’m focusing here on my fellow women senators — Senator Harris, Senator Warren and myself,” Klobuchar said.
I Didn’t Witness Anything … But I Did

When your two marquee witnesses concede that they did not actually witness anything, the words “But I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night” normally follow. William Taylor and George Kent did not reveal their hotel accommodations to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday but one can safely rule out the Mayflower, Trump International, and the Washington Hilton. The Holiday Inn Express in Silver Spring seems a good bet — but that’s just speculation. Speculation, based on hearsay, passed for fact-based testimony on Capitol Hill this week. “I’m here to tell you what I know,” Taylor informed in his baritone, God voice.

In Big Tech’s latest usurpation of personal privacy, Google admitted this week that they’ve been secretly vacuuming up the detailed health records of at least 50 million Americans in 21 states. This was not a voluntary confession. It wasn’t until Monday, after the Wall Street Journal broke the story, that Google issued a typically infuriating statement. “We understand that people want to ask questions,” it read in part. How benevolent. The Orwellian translation:

Americans had a front-row seat for Day One of impeachment inquiry hearings in the House on Wednesday. But missing from the testimony on Capitol Hill was the “witness” who started it all. Six grueling hours of testimony by two hearsay witnesses shed little light on the allegations against President Trump. Neither George Kent, deputy assistant secretary of state for Europe nor William Taylor, the charge d’affaires in Kiev had firsthand information and both clearly had an ax to grind over their differences with the president on foreign policy. More interesting than their testimony was the complete whitewashing of any reference to the original whistleblower, whose second-hand allegations so deeply concerned
LASIK eye surgery needs to stop,
former FDA adviser says: Report

Even though LASIK has been around for 20 years in the U.S., one former FDA adviser has said the procedure should be taken off the market. Dr. Morris Waxler originally voted to approve the eye surgery, but he’s changed his mind. "Essentially we ignored the data on vision distortions that persisted for years," the retired FDA adviser told CBS News. "I re-examined the documentation … and I said, 'Wow this is not good,'" he added. LASIK surgery uses a special laser to reshape the cornea to improve the eye’s “focusing power,” according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The House Ethics Committee revealed on Thursday that it is investigating Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) over whether his relationship with a member of his staff breaks House rules. Hastings has admitted to being in a relationship with his aide, Patricia Williams, who serves as his deputy district director. The committee is now investigating whether Hastings violated House rules with that relationship and if he received any improper gifts from that employee. The House last year adopted a rule preventing members of Congress from having a sexual relationship with a member of their staff.

Of course Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) took his seat Wednesday morning, at the opening of the public impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill, wearing nothing but his shirtsleeves. No suit jacket. That’s how Jordan dresses. It’s his power move. His sartorial chest thump. All the other members of the House Intelligence Committee turned up in suits and ties or other business attire. But not Jordan. Everyone else was willing to offer at least a symbolic nod to decorous formality, to that old-fashioned notion of civility. Jordan announced himself as the man who was itching to rumble. He was the guy who came not to do

For more than two years we endured the horrible evil of the Mueller probe. The Hillary Clinton campaign had funneled $5.6 million to the Perkins Coie law firm, and they retained the services of Fusion GPS, which then hired Christopher Steele to compile a dossier on Donald Trump, the GOP candidate. Steele produced 35 pages of undocumented memos. He provided the “dossier” to Fusion, and they to the partner at Perkins Coie. Meanwhile, from within a corroded Deep State segment within the FBI, other falsifications bubbled up, all leading to allegations that the Trump campaign had conspired with “the Russians” to defeat Hillary and to win the 2016 presidential election.

If Democrats think they advanced their case for impeachment with the first day of hearings into the Ukraine matter, they are deluding themselves. The proceedings were confusing, not clarifying. Speaking as someone who has followed this matter in granular detail, I found it extremely difficult to tease out the set of undeniable facts that would prove Donald Trump did something so appalling he should be the first president in history to be removed from ­office and only the third to be impeached. And I ­assure you, I am willing to be convinced.

Hillary Clinton has explained her reasoning for omitting Margaret Thatcher from new book about “gutsy” women. During an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live to discuss the former secretary of state’s book, The Book of Gusty Women: Favourite Stories of Courage and Resilience, host Emma Barnett questioned why the first female prime minister of the UK was not included. “Surely she comes to mind with gutsy women, even if you didn’t like her?” Barnett asked Clinton. In response to the inquiry, Clinton, who lost the election that would have made her the first female president of the United States in 2016,

On Thursday night, the underdog Cleveland Browns met the Pittsburgh Steelers. And the Browns showed up, beating the Steelers 21-7 in a pretty decisive victory. That wouldn’t be big news, normally. But at the end of the game, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett got into an altercation unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my decades of watching football. (snip) Where this became far different and more dangerous than your typical football scuffle is that, during the entanglement, Myles Garrett actually reared back and attempted to windmill-tomahawk slam the helmet he was holding on top of Mason Rudolph’s exposed skull with furious gusto.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch compared herself to the diplomats and contractors killed in Benghazi in her opening statement in the second public impeachment inquiry on Friday. “We make a difference everyday,” she said in a defense of herself and diplomats serving around the world. She continued: We are people who repeatedly uproot our lives, who risk and sometimes give our lives for this country. We are the 52 Americans, who, 40 years ago this month, began 444 days of deprivation, torture, and captivity in Tehran. We are the dozens of Americans stationed at our embassies in Cuba

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said that if he is elected, he would give a “very, very important role” in White House to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Sanders, a senator from Vermont, said this in a joint interview with Ocasio-Cortez last week to ABC News, adding that the Bronx-Queens freshman congresswoman has ideas that “are resonating all over this country,” and: “If I am in the White House, she will play a very, very important role. No question.” “I don’t want you to hear this, because your head will explode,” Sanders said in jest to Ocasio-Cortez, before adding, “I don’t know of any person … who has had

In Clinton’s view Britain’s first prime minister did not do enough to knock down “barriers for others.” The former Democratic presidential nominee did give a nod to Thatcher’s willingness to change the way she dressed, spoke and wore her hair, alluding to one of the most dramatic makeovers in 20th century politics.

Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who accused Trump of “witness intimidation.”Schiff may have been perusing social media during a hearing that could have doubled as a therapy session for the former ambassador, it was clear Yovanovitch was not — thus how could she be intimidated? At least, not until Schiff brought it to her attention.

LGBT activists have weaponized two scientific societies to cut off a major Mormon university from their international community of scientists. The American Geophysical Union (AGU) in Washington, D.C., and the Geological Society of America (GSA) in Colorado pulled job ads from Brigham Young University (BYU) after facing complaints over BYU's Honor Code, which prohibits homosexual conduct among students and staff. This is unlikely to stop with the AGU and GSA and is likely to lead to blacklisting far more schools than just BYU. LGBT activists complained that the geological societies had listed a job posting from BYU on their job boards.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is appearing before Congress on Friday to cap off the first week of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. It follows the testimony earlier this week from U.S. chargé d'affaires in Ukraine Bill Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Europe George Kent. Democrats have been moving quickly with their impeachment probe. Sparked by a whistleblower complaint, the investigation has centered on whether the president improperly used his office to pressure Ukranian President Voldomyr Zelensky into ordering investigations -- including into the family of 2020 contender Joe Biden -- that could have been politically beneficial to his reelection campaign
