RUSH: Did you see that the Drive-Bys actually fired a reporter? I didn’t even know Newsweek was around. I guess Newsweek is a Web only thing now since magazines are in such dire straits. But there was an infobabe for Newsweek. What’s her name? Jessica Kwong, K-w-o-n-g. Jessica Kwong tweeted on Wednesday, “How is Trump Spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, Golfing, and More.” Of course, how did Obama spend holidays? He golfed, and he golfed, and he hung around liberals on Martha’s Vineyard, and then he golfed — and with Obama golf?

Comments:

The only criteria for an article in a main stream media NEWS (?) operation is that it be "anti-trump". And this one was. That it just so happened to have been written before the fact, and was a lie, was incidental. Kwong is the first reporter fired for being an embarrassment to her bosses. This was just face saving for this operation and there is no danger it will spread through the MSM.

FTA: ''Do you realize the precedent it sets, to fire a reporter for being wrong about Trump? That puts every damn one of them on the chopping block.'' Kinda funny, Same thought I had while reading the article. 90% of them should be fired.

Sorry, but in the category of media credibility Rush has long since lost it with me. I recall him singing the praises of Marta (3rd wife?) and then of course the divorce and how great it was to be a single rich guy hangin' with the babes. Then there was the crowing about his "formerly nicotine stained" fingers to lectures on the finer points of expensive Dominican cigars (3 or 4 a day) and that they didn't use paper so they were good for you. When he talks Christian conservative I have to suspect it's just his day job.

As only Rush could say it. He does get annoying and repetitive at times but he is still the best in the business. I would bet that Kwong person is still reeling from the shock but in her defense, how could she have known?

Democratic Law Professor: It Is Wrong to
Impeach Trump Just Because You're All Mad

Speaking during a House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday morning, George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley called out Democrats and fellow members of the panel for moving forward with impeachment because "everyone is mad." “I get it. You're mad. The president's mad. My Republican friends are mad. My Democratic friends are mad. My wife is mad. My kids are mad. Even my dog seems mad and Luna is a golden-doodle and they don't get mad.  Wide headline split *

A sign of the times, that historians one day will puzzle over: Psychiatrists Organize Campaign to Declare Trump ‘Dangerous,’ Back Impeachment. The campaign involves the usual suspects: Psychiatrists with the World Mental Health Coalition are soliciting signatures in a campaign to support the impeachment of President Donald Trump predicated on claims that he is mentally unstable. Or, put another way, on the ground that he is a Republican. In an email forwarded to PJ Media, three psychiatrists with the coalition ask other psychiatrists to sign on to a petition to the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee to include a statement on Trump’s supposed mental instability into the official record of the impeachment inquiry.

RUSH: So given that this is happening, yesterday I offered Pelosi a way out of this. I gave her a philosophical way out, and that is to say that, while the evidence is overwhelming and we all know that Trump is scum and we know that he attempted to meddle and we know that he attempted to investigate his own opponent, we know, we know, we know, we know, we still have to deal with partisan Republican bigots who happen to run the Senate. And there’s no way that they’re going to join us in agreement that Trump needs to go. In fact, he’s gonna be acquitted.

House Democrats reportedly are considering whether to pursue in their impeachment inquiry matters arising from the Mueller investigation. Specifically, they are looking at whether President Trump lied to Robert Mueller. The Washington Post’s report on this development is based on representations made by House Democrats to the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. The Dems told the court that they need secret grand jury evidence from the Mueller probe to be released in order to consider, as part of their impeachment inquiry, whether Trump lied to Mueller.
If Gun Control Stops School Shootings,

With Santa Clarita not even a distant memory, anti-gun voices are already using it to demand more gun control. Even before the facts were known, Sen. Dick Blumenthal demanded the Senate capitulate to his whims and pass a universal background check bill that wouldn’t have done anything to prevent the shooting as far as anyone can tell. This is normal for anti-gunners. They routinely prattle about how we need more gun control after a mass shooting. However, Santa Clarita is in California, the most gun controlled state in the nation.
Fed Ex vs the New York Times 6 replies

The New York Times today took after FedEx for the sin of having a low corporate tax bill. Sample: FedEx reaped big savings [from the Trump tax cut], bringing its effective tax rate from 34 percentin fiscal year 2017 to less than zero in fiscal year 2018, meaning that, overall, the government technically owed it money. But it did not increase investment in new equipment and other assets in the fiscal year that followed, as Mr. Smith said businesses like his would. . . Fred Smith, the founder and CEO of FedEx, decided to punch back twice as hard:

In an unflattering column about President Trump called “Incompetence is not an impeachable offense,” Marc Thiessen writes: What we saw on display Wednesday were two dedicated, experienced career foreign policy officials who had been desperately trying to figure out what the president wanted — and inferring his intentions based on snippets of information from others. But their efforts to divine Trump’s desires presume that the president knew what he wanted. It’s not clear he did. His handling of Ukraine seemed less the execution of an intelligible plan than a chaotic mishmash of constantly changing urges and demands.
The impeachment hearing, opening salvos 11 replies

I was able to watch the first hour and a half of today’s impeachment hearing until a prior, far more enjoyable commitment took precedence. I saw the opening statements of Adam Schiff and Devin Nunes, plus the opening statements of today’s two witnesses, George Kent and Bill Taylor. Here are my impressions: Schiff devoted his opening statement to a summary of what he says the evidence will show. He presented his statement in measured-sounding tones, a welcome departure from his previous attempt to put words in President Trump’s mouth. Most of the facts Schiff presented are supported by documents and/or testimony.

Today the House Intelligence Committee holds its first public hearings in the Schiff show. The Schiff show is a sort of preface to the impeachment article(s) that the House will send over to the Senate before the end of the year. Something’s happening here. Why is the House Intelligence Committee holding impeachment hearings in search of a high crime or misdemeanor? The structure of the production has struck me from the beginning as a variation of the Russia hoax that consumed the first two-plus years of the Trump administration. The Ukraine matter is to usher in the end of the Trump era by hook or by crook.

Name the Democrat who is super-excited to have Michael Bloomberg barge into the Dem primaries like some nutty ex-girlfriend who gave you crabs popping in at your wedding. Where is the groundswell of support behind this pint-sized presidential aspirant? Perhaps the Democratic consultants who didn’t sign up with one of the other goofy candidates are happy. The micro-zillionaire may not have charisma or a vision or actual human support, but he’s got endless bucks to squander on electoral parasites.

On Saturday, San Francisco voters elected the son of two former Weather Underground murderers to serve as their District Attorney. The voters deserve all the hell that is about to break loose. Progressive candidate Chesa Boudin wants to free criminals but prosecute police and ICE agents for doing their jobs. It's no surprise Boudin hates cops so much. His parents did, too. 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.

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

Actor Josh Brolin says he gave hot new wellness trend “perineum sunning” a whirl — with disastrous results that left his “pucker hole” sunburned. 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.

A viral video published by Deseret Sun photojournalist J. Omar Ornelas shows two men using a ladder to defeat the replacement border fence that President Donald Trump said “can’t be climbed.” In September, Trump visited the Otay Mesa border site to extol the virtues of the replacement barrier that’s being installed there, and went on an extended riff about how difficult the fence would be to climb. Trump said the wall had been tested by “world-class mountain climbers,” and referenced “pictures of young people climbing walls with drugs on their back--a lot of drugs.”

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.

Dr. Jack Mayer, a zoologist whose been researching wild pigs for 40 years, has warned that the population could keep growing unless there is a swine flu epidemic. His comments come just a week after a caregiver was mauled to death by wild hogs in Texas.

California Sen. Kamala Harris should never have run for president in the first place. Her ambition far exceeded her ability. She hadn’t yet established herself in the U.S. Senate. And she hadn’t exactly excelled in her previous job as California’s attorney general. There wasn’t much of a record worth bragging about on the campaign trail. After being elected to the Senate in a 2016 cakewalk, she should have spent the next three years focused exclusively on representing Californians in Congress, helping the state on such vital issues as water development, environmental protection, healthcare and homelessness. But people around her — political advisors and her sister Maya Harris

According to a report Tuesday in Out magazine, the South Bend mayor has several times participated in Red Kettle Ring Off for the Christmas season in the Indiana city. Out linked to reports of the annual charity in local South Bend media from 2015 and 2017, and at least one other photo from 2016 surfaced on Twitter. In 2018, he held the annual Mayor’s Night Out — an open-listening event to let residents quiz city officials — at a Salvation Army community center.

Hillary Clinton quashed long-running rumors that she’s a closeted lesbian during an interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday. “Well, contrary to what you might hear, I actually like men,” the former secretary of state joked on Mr. Stern’s Sirius/XM radio program. The shock jock asked Mrs. Clinton to raise her right hand and swear to never having a “lesbian affair.” “Never, never, never!” the former presidential candidate said, laughing. “Never even been tempted, thank you very much.” Mrs. Clinton added that she was “pretty popular” growing up and that getting dates (with men) was never a problem for her.

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the 2012 fatal shooting of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, is suing Martin's family and Florida prosecutors, claiming that they engineered false evidence in the homicide trial. The lawsuit to be filed Wednesday in Polk County Circuit Court seeks $100million in civil damages for defamation, abuse of civil process and conspiracy. It alleges that the prosecution's key witness in Zimmerman's 2013 murder trial, Rachel Jeantel, was an imposter coached by the family and their lawyers. The lead defendant in the suit is Sybrina Fulton, Martin's mother. Fulton gained national notoriety as an advocate for social justice
