Where are the mutineers
who will save the Democrat Party
from Adam Schiff?

Watching Schiff's trumped up inquiry about nothing but a phone call, the transcript of which has been available to the public for many weeks, is like watching The Caine Mutiny (1954) without the drama. The film is about a naval captain whose first officer relieves him of his command when the man demonstrates obvious signs of mental instability. All that is missing from Schiff's on-air mental collapse are the little steel balls that Humphrey Bogart as Captain Queeg fiddled with while on the stand at the court-martial of the mutineers. Queeg was obsessed with missing strawberries. Schiff's impending mental breakdown is demonstrably more obvious, less subtle than Queeg's.

Some guy called into Red Eye Radio this morning and made a good point. He said that after this impeachment attempt fails and Trump gets re-elected, they will try it again in 2021 and that will fail also - that will make PDJT the first President in history to not be impeached twice!

There will be no dem savior of their party because the party itself is in terrible shape. Thoughtful dems, so called moderates, have been mostly voted out. What is left are either radicals or those who accept radicalism because they cynically used it to get elected it is too hard to fight it. The challenge for the dem party to be rational has been going on since 2010 (actually longer) and their CHOICE each time is to go further Left, as lead by BO. The same kind of challenge for stiffer spines has been going on for Republicans as lead by the Bushes. But now they have a forceful leader, Trump, who has shown them how to fight, that it is worthwhile and correct, and WIN. It has not been easy and it took a leader of Trump's caliber to make it happen. The dems have no such leader anywhere in the party. Look at their pathetic presidential candidates leading them to the Left with "free" stuff. When Trump wins in 2020 and the House goes back to the Republicans, impeachment will be OVER. Republican voters are solidly behind Trump and the Congress Critters know it. The ones that worked against Trump in 2017/18 mostly resigned or failed to be reelected. Some are resigning for the 2020 elections and hopefully with be replaced with someone wise enough to work with Trump for the good of the Country. Of course we will still have the quisling Rummey but he will serve as a good example of what NOT to be.

Perhaps, just perhaps, by 2020 we can have a House which will get down and do the work of the people, instead of wasting time and money on a personal vendetta. Why must we taxpayers have to pay the salaries of those who don't do the work they were hired to do? In the real world, which most of them have never experienced, they would have been fired long ago.

The first thing the President should this morning is FIRE the Black Lady (Obama Holdover) in charge of HR (mentioned by this author). To have someone, working against this president, in the White House is mind boggling. Are Trump's inner circle blind? They can't pick these people out after three years in office? Come on! Also, I think this nonsense that government employees can't be fired should be ended. Change whatever rules you need to and then clean house. THAT is how the Democrats would handle the Obama Holdover problem!

FTA: "NSC officials attempted to remove Alex Vindman due to security concerns but were blocked by an Obama holdover, an official in the White House who still controls human resource management inside the NSC..." Baloney. Vindman is NOT a civilian, but a detailee still serving in the Army. (BTW: He doesn't pass any "civil service exam" to be an Army Lt. Colonel.) There are no "HR rules" of which I am aware that prevent his re-assignment outside the NSC.

A really excellent commentary. Schiff really is deranged, a psychopath/sociopath. "Schiff is Capt. Queeg on steroids. This entire enterprise is a dreadful perversion, a search for a crime where there is none. This is a clown show — an overused description, but exactly on the mark. Schiff has made a laughingstock of his party, and Pelosi has allowed him to do it. He is the biggest blunder of her speakership." Here is a real gem, too. "NSC officials attempted to remove Alex Vindman due to security concerns but were blocked by an Obama holdover, an official in the White House who still controls human resource management inside the NSC, an African-American woman closely tied to the Obama family." And Bannon tried to remove Eric CIAramella, the fake whistleblower, and also was unable. This is unacceptable. ALL Obama hold overs in ALL administration positions need to be fired. All of them, 100%, no exceptions. I am sure that a couple or three good bureaucrats will be fired, but if that is the cost of getting out the saboteurs, it is a cheap price to pay.

CNN’s pre-Thanksgiving civility lesson:
Trump defenders ‘Should Be
Laughed at, Ridiculed, and Scorned’

When you consider the vast number of people forced to watch CNN as they waited at their gates for delayed airline flights on the busiest travel day of the year, one marked by weather delays in most of the country, this call for harsh derision could affect a lot of Thanksgiving dinners today. Ridicule and scorn do not fit well with the theme of giving thanks for the blessings we receive as Americans, but then again, CNN, in the ratings tank and discredited for its repeated fake news incidents, has less to be thankful for than most Americans, enjoying higher incomes and lower taxes.
Transgenderism and the Olympics 29 replies

Next year’s Tokyo Summer Olympics may spell the swift death of the transgender movement as a dominant politically-correct touchstone. Biological men, self-identifying as women, are poised to make a clean sweep of the Women’s Olympics, triggering a very public debate on this third-rail subject. That firestorm, pitting pro-women feminists against extreme pro-transgender progressives, will begin July 24th, just as the Presidential sweepstakes moves into its sprint to the finish line. The International Olympic Committee -- the IOC -- recently admitted they couldn’t come up with fair guidelines governing how and when transgender women can compete as women

Last night's Democratic presidential debate featured a slew of predictable boilerplate from the candidates advocating for abortion. First, Sen. Amy Klobuchar got asked about it, and she stated the usual stuff, and then Sen. Elizabeth Warren got asked a slightly different question by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow about whether there was any room left in the Democratic party for a pro-life Democrat, such as Louisiana's governor John Bel Edwards. Warren was evasive, failing to answer the question directly, but she made it pretty clear there was no room. (snip) Bel Edwards belies that because the likely game changer for Bel Edwards is that he was pro-life.

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

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.

As Rep. Adam Schiff’s “sentence first, trial later” show trial of President Donald J. Trump reaches a so-called public hearing phase, we find the weaver of fables dictating what witnesses the GOP will be permitted to call based on a set of three qualifying question they must answer in advance. These questions ask, essentially, if the witnesses believe President Trump is guilty of pressuring Ukraine to dig up dirt on the Bidens in exchange for military aid. The GOP, it seems, will not be allowed to call witnesses who have testimony or evidence to the contrary, that there was no pressure and no quid pro quo.

It’s truly not shocking that a political leader would be a reprobate behind closed doors. From Caligula to the Marquis de Sade to Bill Clinton, the depraved have always been overrepresented among the ruling classes. It is for this reason that what’s even more distressing about the Katie Hill affair than what she did is the reaction to it from the broader society — including “broadminded conservatives” defending her. Hill, the former Democrat congresswoman whose resignation from office took effect Nov. 1, certainly is our time’s Thoroughly Modern Millie

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) records show that Chick-fil-A is not only stopping donations to Christian organizations but is funding left-wing extremist groups, including the anti-Christian Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Chick-fil-A’s 2017 990 IRS filing shows the fast-food franchise made a $2,500 donation to SPLC, among a laundry list of pro-abortion and pro-LGBT orgs, Townhall reports.

CNN’s National Affairs Correspondent, Joan Walsh, said she was “shocked” President Trump didn’t sexually assault the hero military dog visiting the White House on Monday.

It was getting towards an hour since we’d been marched out to the edge of the South Lawn to wait for the president. The cameraman, zooming in on the window, informed us that the other guy was Attorney General William Barr. Outside, the crisp fall dusk was punctured by the metallic roar of a helicopter engine.

The Drudge Report is still the king of conservative aggregator websites, but its rivals are gaining ground. Five right-tilting upstarts — Whatfinger News, Liberty Daily, Rantingly, NewsAmmo and Gab Trends — increased their average monthly traffic and engagement, as measured by average visit duration and average pages per visit, from September-October 2018 to 2019, according to SimilarWeb, which shared its data with The Washington Times. At the same time, the marketing-intelligence company found traffic to the Drudge Report during that period declined by 15%. From July to October, Drudge dropped from 96 million total visits to 77 million, prompting recent headlines such as True Pundit’s “Drudge Bleeds Out as Conservatives Flee.”

Police officers for the San Francisco Bay Area commuter train system disproportionately target black riders with citations for eating and drinking, according to new data that has renewed concerns about racial profiling. The Bay Area Rapid Transit (Bart) data was released following a viral video showing police handcuffing a 31-year-old black man who was cited for eating a breakfast sandwich on his way to work. The new records show that more than 81% of people who have been stopped for eating and drinking on Bart since 2014 were people of color, and that the vast majority of them were black.

Hunter Biden was suspected of smoking crack inside a strip club where he dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits — at the same time he held a seat on the board of a controversial Ukrainian natural gas company, The Post has learned. The incident, which took place at Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club in Washington, DC, late last year, represents the most recent alleged drug use by Biden, 49, who has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction that included a crack binge in 2016. Workers at Archibald’s, located about three blocks north of the White House, said Biden was a regular there, with two bartenders and a security worker
