Lead impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff left several Republican senators incensed in the closing moments of the third and final day of the Democrats' opening arguments. Schiff, who received plaudits from Democrats and Republicans alike for his delivery in the first couple days of the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump, stirred outrage Friday evening when he repeated a CBS News report citing an unnamed Trump source who said GOP senators were warned not to vote against the commander in chief. "CBS News reported last night that a Trump confidant said that GOP senators were warned ... 'vote against the president and your head will be on a pike,'"

No one on Trump's side would be so stupid as to make such a statement to anyone. This can only be a flat-out lie on the part of the MSM......not a doubt in my mind.

If this article is true, what is glaringly obvious is that Murkowski, Collins and other RINO’s aren’t furious at what Schiff, Nadler, Garcia, Jeffries, Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of the Democrats are doing to the Constitution, the office of the presidency, confidence in the integrity of elections or the lives, families and reputations of people like Carter Page, Michael Flynn, Donald Trump, etc. But when they get they get attacked, if even indirectly, that’s when they become incensed. In response to the heads on pikes comment, Sen. John Burrasso said Senate Republicans had “never heard such a threat.” Does he even know about what is happening to country class Republicans and other pro-conservatives around the country? Does he care?

Schiff is trying to impeach the impeachment process. If the Republicans vote to acquit, it’s because they were biased because they were offended by Schiff’s comments. KRB

Thanks to a 4-hour documentary about herself, which premiered to great Progressive buzz at the Sundance Film Festival, Hillary’s in the news again. More than that, she’s doing so at a time when Democrats are panicking about Bernie’s increasing lead in New Hampshire and the general pressure he’s putting on “mainstream” candidate Joe Biden. Sane Democrats strongly suspect that, while Bernie’s manna for the base, most Americans are not going to vote for a candidate who still adores socialism despite the Gulags, the reeducation camps, and those nasty National Socialist gas chambers. Because of the buzz, a scrubbed, buffed, injected, stretched,

Retired Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz gave what may be the most persuasive case against impeaching President Donald Trump while in the well of the U.S. Senate on Monday evening. Speaking as a representative of Trump's defense team, the lifelong liberal Democrat urged senators to not "let the feelings about one man, strong as they may be, cause irreparable damage" to the fate of other presidents. "Passion and fears of the moment must not blind us," he pleaded. Giving a clinic on the history of impeachment in a matter-of-fact and understandable way,

In recent years, the "Not The Onion" moments from leftists have been coming at us so fast it seems like they're being fired from a Gatling gun. Today's example is a politician from Quebec named Luc Ferrandez, who seems to have found the silver lining to the Coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China. From The Post Millennial: Quebec politician and radio talk show host Luc Ferrandez has suggested that the coronavirus has had one “positive” outcome for the city of Wuhan, China—it’s reduced the carbon footprint.

Joe Biden has told a lot of stories about his connection to black voters. Back in 2017, he told a story about his younger days at a community pool with minority kids rubbing his hairy legs and jumping on his lap, which was all sorts of weird and creepy. He told another good one on Sunday at an NAACP event where he claimed “political identity” was molded by minorities back in his home state. “I have a lot of black support because that’s where I come from. I was raised in the black church, politically, not a joke,” Joe Biden said at the event in Des Moines, Iowa.

A Mexican illegal alien who crossed the United States-Mexico border has been arrested and charged with attempting to murder a Denver, Colorado judge. In August 2019, prosecutors say 38-year-old Jose Armenta-Vazquez allegedly nearly stabbed to death 45-year-old Judge David Blackett at his home. Blackett is a former prosecutor. At the time of the stabbing, Armenta-Vazquez escaped from the scene and police had been searching for him until his arrest in December 2019. The Rundown blog first confirmed that Armenta-Vazquez was living in the U.S. as an illegal alien. Breitbart News can exclusively confirm that the illegal alien arrived from Mexico by crossing the southern border at an unknown period of time.

Fred Fleitz, former CIA official and former National Security Council chief of staff, urged his friend and former boss, former National Security Adviser John Bolton, to withdraw his tell-all book from his publisher “immediately.” Fleitz, who served as Bolton’s chief of staff twice, said it was “crushing” to read weekend press reports that Bolton planned to publish a book on his time in the Trump White House. Those reports included a bombshell New York Times report on Sunday that alleged Bolton’s leaked manuscript draft said Trump told Bolton he wanted to withhold aid from Ukraine until its government agreed to investigate his political rivals.

As my colleague Bonchie reported earlier, the New York Times dropped a “bombshell” about what supposedly was in a draft of John Bolton’s new book that supposedly has President Donald Trump saying to Bolton that he wants to withhold aid in exchange for investigations. There are of course many other questions about this last minute drop just as Republicans are destroying the Democrats’s impeachment case. It’s all about breaking the wall to get in witnesses and damage Trump. But the basic response is a simple one: no actual quid pro quo was ever asked for, the transcript and President Volodymyr Zelensky confirm that.

The city of Los Angeles mourned the loss of one of its most prominent celebrities. Current and former professional basketball players also joined in, highlighting Bryant’s accomplishments and his relationship with his family. But in the midst of the widespread grieving, others saw an opportunity to use Bryant’s untimely passing to launch cynical political attacks against President Donald Trump.

Everything old is new again. If you liked Julie Swetnick in the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing TV movie, you’ll love John Bolton in the impeachment TV movie. John Bolton has a book coming out. Can you believe that the week the president’s team gets a platform to respond to the Democrats’ wild accusations, the details of Bolton’s book somehow make it to the pages of New York Times? If this tactic seems familiar, it’s because it is. This is the Comey maneuver. Remember, when Comey’s memos and positive spin showed up in the Times? It’s almost as if James Comey and John Bolton have the same book publicist.

Calling in Bolton to testify to the Senate that Trump has a long-standing grudge against Ukraine sheds precisely no new light on anything. The New York Times on Sunday said that it has spoken with people who reviewed the manuscript of Bolton’s forthcoming book about his time as national security adviser in the White House. Without directly quoting a single thing from the manuscript,

It is an old rule of journalism that it is better to get it right than to get it first. But after seeing how reporters reacted Sunday to news of retired NBA star Kobe Bryant's death, you could be forgiven for thinking that such a rule no longer exists, if it ever existed at all. The former Los Angeles Laker was among nine people killed Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Southern California. The other victims include Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna, one of her teammates on her basketball team, the teammate’s parent, and the pilot. Those are the facts.

House Education and Labor Committee Chairman Bobby Scott, a Virginia Democrat, argued that such "right-to-work" laws are unfair to unions and the workers that back collective bargaining, necessitating his bill, the Protecting the Right to Organize Act. “Under current law, unions are required to negotiate on behalf of all employees, regardless if they belong to the union or not," Scott told the Washington Examiner.

Unlike the Operation Reinhard death camps of Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec, Majdankek, and Chelmo, which saw almost two million murders combined, Auschwitz functioned as both a concentration and a death camp.
