Adam Schiff Has Jumped the Shark

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 12/8/2019 4:34:41 AM

Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.

They want to impeach on thought crimes,or what they perceive what he may have done. If the Dems vote Yes on the articles they have written,then God help them.

I strongly recommend Geoff Shepard's books and articles on Watergate and impeachment - especially "The Real Watergate Scandal ..." Great researcher and excellent writer.

This bug-eyed b@st@rd should be removed from his position as committee chairman at least and then removed from congress. Here he is trying to impeach our President without any real cause other than hate . When he makes a lie ridden opening speech before his committee he is lying to the congress.. Why would his fellow congressmen want to keep him? I guess it must be because they are also a bunch of evil, lying b@st@rds too.

This is a grievous breach on our justice system. Pelosi has given free reign to Schiff and Nadler to break the law. We the people have the power to correct this at the polls. We need to vote out every single Democrat on the ballot to make an example. I would not vote for my own brother, who is a Democrat, based on this hoax / coup attempt.

Why did Rep. Bull Schiff include this information in his report? To send a message to the many who might be looking to talk to investigators in the DOJ, I would presume. Let's all hope Monday's IG report has some meat in it, that's not part of the summary which is the only part most of the MSM will report about. Let's hope President Trump has some good tweets, and possibly holds a news conference that will be televised, and take some of the "news" out of the House Judiciary's last-minute Monday calendar addition. And, just for the sake of finding out how easy AT&T and Verizon will produce this type of phone information, a (any) Senate committee should be asking for something very similar.

By what authority was SCHITT given permission to do this? We have seen how completely FRAUDULENT items were created to get FISA more than once for PURELY POLITICAL REASONS... One of the articles of impeachment on RMN was "misuse of government power", and THIS Schitt show is a perfect example of the misuse of power violating DUE PROCESS, THE RULE OF LAW, and the once SACRED rule of privacy between an attorney and his client. between Mr. Trump and his law counsel of Rudy Guillani and Jay Sekulow. One would think the PRESS would be screaming BLOODY MURDER over the treatment of John Soloman as well! The time is coming up very soon that unless we stand against it, our cherished civil libertires granted under the 4th and 5th Amendments will be taken awat if we stand in diasagreement with others who want to use whatever means necessary to control citzens unwilling to fight for the rights we so easily allow to be violated.

Being a logical conservative I spend some time wondering what's driving the democrats to act like lemmings heading straight for the cliff. Logically speaking their goal would be to rid themselves of Trump but those efforts have failed yet they persist in the face of polling that suggests the voters have had enough. The only conclusion I can come to is that many in the democrat ranks are going to be exposed by the Horowitz IG report, even though he's more swamp than not, and then the Barr-Durham investigation. This is driving them crazy and they're trying everything possible to get out from under it. Just my two cents.

From what I’ve read about Joe McCarthy, and it’s a lot ,he never did anything like this. Remember when you hear the bleating about McCarthyism , he was getting the same treatment from the press and establishment as Trump is getting now but without an alternative media fighting back. Just like Trump , try to figure out what he actually DID rather than people complaining about their fears. Just like Trump , you keep here about ‘these actions’ and ‘ this behavior’ without explanations of exactly what actions , what behaviors they are referring to. Wild accusations ? You mean like Harry Reed and Romney’s income tax , or Dan Rather and National Guard records. Note : the Cambers Hiss business and the Hollywood Ten business had nothing to do with Joe McCarthy, they both started in the House and before he was elected to the Senate , the press finds it convenient to conflate these issues under the one title of ‘McCarthyism’ to camouflage the fact that they were covering for communists all along.

#28, short version: Fonzie was always cool, wearing a black leather motorcycle jacket and white undershirt, and jeans. After many seasons, eventually he went water skiiing in one episode. He is seen obviously in front of a back projection screen, wearing white T shirt and black leather jacket waterskiiing (eye roll), ridiculous enough, but after some skiing footage, suddenly he jumps over a shark, just because he is SO cool. At that point, the eye rolls got too strong, and pretty much everyone knew that "Happy Days" had gone too far, even Fonzie had limits.....he had jumped the shark, his step past cool into ridiculousness.

It is hard to believe that the run-up to the presidential-election year has plumbed such a depth of farcical degradation.

Everyone who plays poker is familiar with the “tell,” that is, a nervous tic or subtle mannerism that betrays when a player has a strong or bluff hand. I think the Democrats’ behavior this week includes several “tells” that their impeachment hand is weak, and might cause them to lose the whole political pot next year. The first is the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) that John notes immediately below. It was a big surprise Tuesday when Speaker Pelosi said the House was now ready to take up and presumably approve the new agreement, after months of delay. It may be true that the Trump Administration has made significant concessions

The Wharton School of Economics at the University of Pennsylvania has released its own study of Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren's "wealth tax" proposal and, to no one's surprise, discovered that her revenue projections for how much the tax would add to the treasury are wildly optimistic. Warren claims the tax will bring in $3.7 trillion over 10 years. The Wharton study reveals a more realistic number not based on fantasy-land assumptions: $2.3 trillion. Not only that, the tax will dramatically affect economic growth and shrink the wealth of the very people she claims to be helping: the middle class. Of course, Warren's proposal is political

One of my all-time favorite sporting moments concerns a soccer match in Thailand between Satri Angthong and Bangkok Sports Club. The match, in 2017, had gone to a penalty shoot-out, and extraordinarily the score had reached 19-19 when a Bangkok player hit the crossbar with a thunderous shot. Satri’s goalkeeper charged forwards to his teammates waiting on the half-way line, punching the air and leaping like a demented dolphin in wild jubilation as his opponent sank his hands to his knees in abject despair. But the ball, which had soared off the crossbar into the stratosphere, crashed to the ground again and spun viciously in the direction of the goal. The goalkeeper suddenly realized

The Democrats have filed Articles of Impeachment. No one is surprised, because impeachment has been the goal for the radical Left and others who dislike the president since before his election. Impeachment of a president is a solemn undertaking. It will inevitably, as Alexander Hamilton noted in Federalist No. 65, veer toward political factions. Yet it is important that our Founders intentionally did not embrace “recalls” or “votes of no confidence.” Rather, our system demands from Congress evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors and contemplates a level of behavior commensurate with the chaos inflicted on the republic by potential removal of a president.

BROWNSVILLE, Texas -- Salvador Castillo was yearning for tranquility when he became enchanted by a one-acre homestead close -- but not too close -- to the city, a place where cows graze beneath whispering mesquite trees on the property's edge. Castillo, an Afghanistan war veteran, and his wife bought the home using military benefits and grew their family into their new neighborhood -- about half a mile from a bend in the Rio Grande. They never imagined a border wall could dissect their property someday. But the first letter, stamped with an official government seal, arrived about a year ago. Their neighbors, the Carrascos and Trevinos, got them too.

Perhaps if Democrats would momentarily shelve their obsession with Donald Trump, they’d comprehend the staggering abuse of power they’re defending these days. Because much of Tuesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing with DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz was jaw-dropping. Horowitz’s testimony, in fact, sounded little like the media depiction of the IG report only the day before. Most major outlets had stressed that the IG had found no bias in the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. But failing to uncover explicit instances of bias and exonerating the FBI aren’t the same thing. Worse, most of the media had buried the lede.
