White House Refuses to Participate
in Jerry Nadler’s Impeachment Inquiry

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 12/2/2019 6:30:20 AM

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone wrote a five-page letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) on Sunday, rejecting participation in what Cipollone called a “baseless and highly partisan” impeachment inquiry. Nadler had given the president and his lawyers until 6:00 p.m. EST to respond to a request to participate in the opening hearing of the Judiciary Committee’ inquiry on Wednesday, focusing on constitutional and legal issues. Democrats had prepared four witnesses, unnamed as of Sunday: three were reportedly in favor of impeachment.

Five pages?? Should have taken just one page with TWO words in capital letters, bolded text and underscored, one word starting with "F" and the other with "O!!"

So Nads branch of the government is 'giving' the executive branch of the government a schedule to appear? Hah, I'd tell him to blow it out his backside.

Pelosi's thin majority represents one tenth of the US government. This tail is wagging nine tenths of the dog. Why do we even put up with this farce. Ask Naddy to first establish that a crime has been committed. An establishing that will stand against due process and cross examination. Refuse to grant any legitimacy until that is done. If they disagree let them go to the SCOTUS.

Impeachment Power Can Be Abused, Too 6 replies
Posted by M2 12/3/2019 6:42:59 AM Post Reply
It is not a good look for Democrats, in purporting to respond to the president’s abuse of his constitutional power over foreign relations, to abuse the House’s power over impeachment. That, however, is exactly what they are doing in their unseemly zeal to impeach President Trump on a blatantly political deadline. In a December 1 letter, White House counsel Pat Cipollone notified House Judiciary chairman Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) that the president will not participate in the committee’s first open hearing on Wednesday, December 4. Ordinarily — not that there’s anything “ordinary” about the potential impeachment of an American president — I’d be inclined to assess this as poor judgment.

When British businessman Cecil Rhodes passed away in 1902, he couldn’t possibly have imagined what the world would be like in 2019. Over 117 years ago, his brain couldn’t have conceived of commercial air travel or the Internet or how great Jennifer Aniston would still look. Further, Rhodes also would not recognize what has become of the prestigious scholarship he founded in the year of his death. For one, he would be confused that the Rhodes Scholarship was being granted to women and minorities — he was an avowed white supremacist and specifically excluded women from winning the award. (Women didn’t become eligible until 1977.)

It’s one of the questions you’re not supposed to ask in public but everyone talks about in private: What’s going on with Matt Drudge? For conservatives, the Drudge Report was a one-stop shop for news on the Internet starting in the late 1990s. When Matt first broke the scandal involving the President of the United States and an intern, his place at the top of alternative media, as it was called then, was secured. As always, imitators followed. But none came close to combing as many news outlets and boiling down the essence of stories like Drudge. That was his magic – he’d plow through stories and

Over an otherwise peaceful Thanksgiving, the only news that really stood out was a terrorist knife attack in London. Two people were killed by an Islamic terrorist. The capstone of the attack was a dramatic and improvised takedown of the terrorist by some locals, who used a fire extinguisher and . . . a narwhal tusk. In the end, police shot and killed the attacker. Of course this is not London’s first brush with Islamic terror. In 2017, a similar stabbing attack occurred at London Bridge, killing a policeman. Manchester suffered from a bombing attack during an Ariana Grande concert in 2017. In 2013, terrorists beheaded a British

After several weeks of hype, the impeachment of President Trump has turned out to be another ephemeral sideshow in the never-ending psychodrama of elite “resistance.” Americans are tuning out the noise, and there is little that the gatekeepers in the corporate leftist media can do about it, except to fret that the public is too jaded by years of palace intrigue against President Trump to follow this latest convoluted scandal. The impact of the House Intelligence Committee’s public hearings was essentially zero. The Democrats failed to shift public opinion in either direction. How did this happen? How could an event made out to be so profound and consequential be reduced to

Regardless of who wins in 2020, the mega-issue that drove the 2016 elections will grip the country more intensely than ever. From President Obama on down, the political, educational, media, and corporate establishment had long since taken for granted that placing the opinions, interests, tastes, and the rights of the rest of America on the same plane as their own amounts to “false equality.” They had come to regard us as lower beings. No matter whether they attributed our purported inferiority to our alleged racism, sexism, etc., or just plain stupidity, they negated the possibility of common citizenship with us. The moment that Hillary Clinton’s reference to those

Almost four years into the war on Donald Trump, any mention of Obama's role in the banana republic tactics has been covered up. The fact that high-ranking Obama-appointed FBI/CIA/intelligence officials have been caught plotting to delegitimize an election and remove President Trump from office makes it a sure bet that Obama, the consummate community organizer, had a tight leash on everything going on in the White House. During her show this past Saturday, Judge Jeanine Pirro and her guest, The Plot against the President author Lee Smith, specifically called out Barack Obama for "interfering in the peaceful transition of power" in 2016. It's about time.

Now that you Democrats have got back from Thanksgiving and have finished telling your #MAGA uncle he is a racist-sexist-homophobe, I would like a word before you chaps plunge into full-on impeachment in the House. The most important political experience in my life was 30 years ago when my Greek friend explained it all to me. The conversation happened about the time that the Greek colonels had decided to return Greece to democracy. What was needed, my friend said, was for the center-right to win the next election, and for the left to concede the election. Then what was needed was for the left to win the next election, and for

After taking his time to cherry-pick just the best witnesses from his basement hearings, he held a swift set of public hearings, which drove public support down for impeachment, and now he's slapped together a report for the House Intelligence Committee to vote on, giving it all of 24 hours to vote. Sound like a fair process? Actually, sounds like a desperate Democrat with a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, whose priority now is an oncoming election train headed in his direction. Here's the Breitbart report: House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is giving members of his committee just 24 hours to read and sign off on his report

There has been an outbreak of cult-watchers among Democrats, as they all parrot the same talking points that President Donald Trump’s supporters are part of a cult and that he is a cult leader. A rogue’s gallery in leftist groupthink rushed to get in on the action; Dan Rather, Ana Navarro, Brian Stelter, Dana Milbank, Joy Reid, and even the Mooch, along with an entire constellation of dimbulbs. It’s a noticeable shift away from direct attacks on the president as the spears are turned on Americans who have the audacity to support him. This is perhaps because the president is such an effective

Our betters in the MSM, and related ruling-class mouthpieces, have set the narrative: the lackluster, too-crazy pack of Democrat presidential candidates, even with a few token billionaires, will ultimately give way to the entry of Michelle Obama into the race. The former First Lady, author of an apparently best-selling memoir, will inject palpable blue energy throughout the nation, return black America to a 95+% Democrat voting bloc, consolidate the Obama voting coalitions that won two presidential elections, and the evil interloper Trump will be sent packing. Don’t buy this narrative.

The “No Country for Old Men” actor revealed the effect of tanning his bum in a Black Friday Instagram post. “My pucker hole is crazy burned and I was going to spend the day shopping with my family and instead I’m icing and using aloe and burn creams because of the severity of the pain,” Brolin wrote next to a photo of a naked man lying on his back with his legs in the air as the sun kisses his posterior.

After skewering Melania Trump’s holiday decorations in the past, the Washington Post has this year approved of her White House decor, and decided instead to criticize the former fashion model's appearance in a widely mocked piece on Tuesday that labeled the first lady's jacket "ridiculous." The liberal paper’s fashion critic Robin Givhan wrote a piece headlined, “Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations are lovely, but that coat looks ridiculous,” which criticizes the outfit the first lady wore when unveiling the décor.

Next year, Democrats will control both houses of Virginia’s state Legislature as well as its governorship. On November 18, State Sen. Dick Saslaw introduced a bill that he will sponsor in the 2020 legislative session. That bill will outlaw not only the sale or transfer but also the possession of certain firearms. Saslaw’s bill — SB 16 — provides that “It is unlawful for any person to import, sell, manufacture, purchase, possess or transport an assault firearm” and makes such actions a Class 6 felony. (In Virginia, Class 6 felonies are punishable by imprisonment for between one and five years.)

Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer whose anti-Trump text messages became ammo for Republicans to allege a "coup" against President Trump, stepped into the public spotlight one week ahead of a highly anticipated Justice Department inspector general report. The Daily Beast published an interview with Page in the evening Sunday and shortly afterwards she was revealed to be on Twitter. "I’m done being quiet," Page said in a short tweet sharing the report. Benjamin Wittes, editor-in-chief of Lawfare and "good friend" of former FBI Director James Comey, confirmed the account, @NatSecLisa, is hers.

Elizabeth Warren said she wants to be the last president elected by the electoral college and the first elected by the popular vote. The Democratic presidential candidate wants the electoral college abolished after the 2020 election, saying she would get elected next year under its rules and then by the popular vote when she ran for re-election in 2024. Democrats were outraged in 2016 when Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but Donald Trump won the electoral college and the presidency. (Photo/Tweet)

However, the executive summary laid out the broad outlines of the Democrats’ case.

My husband watches a lot of videos on YouTube and some are entertaining, but some are downright scary. I watched one recently made by a man defending the Electoral College because he lives in flyover country. He made a lot of sense and clearly understands why the Founding Fathers wrote it into the Constitution. The rants coming from the Democrats running for office clearly show that none of them studied civics in school. They seem to think that if you don’t live in large cities on the coasts, your vote shouldn’t count.

Fox Business host Stuart Varney revealed his 2020 predictions as the country gears up for a heated election year. "I think this is a split party, I think Bloomberg is the nominee," Varney said Tuesday about the Democrats, "and I think Trump wins big time in November." "Think about what's happening to the Democrat party," said Varney. "You've got two candidates for the presidency who are socialists and along comes this man who is ... the 11th richest person in the world ... so you've got the socialists, going up against the billionaires. That is a totally divided party."
