Like week-old meat left in a hot car, the stench of defeat is starting to overpower the swag pens and stifled giggles in the Democrats' impeachment project. Axios has fresh news about how bad it is: Officials in both parties tell me that — barring surprise new information — President Trump is on a glide path to swift acquittal at his Senate impeachment trial, despite a blizzard of evidence bolstering Democrats' accusations. Why it matters: Trump has a decent chance of avoiding witnesses and of losing zero Republican votes on conviction. Think about that: When the news broke,

It descends on them, and it doesn't smell good.

They had plenty of nothing. They spread their nothing out over 2 1/2 days of boring repetition, interspersed with insults to the Senators and derogatory remarks about the American People, too stupid to elect someone good. And nothing is not good enough for the Senate. So they can take their nothing back to their little House, sit in the corner, and sulk.

FTA: '...'despite a blizzard of evidence bolstering Democrats' accusations.'' I have not heard any evidence yet. Only emotional rants, with no bearing in reality. If there was any evidence, there would be criminal charges. The democrats have presented NONE!

The articles should be dismissed to avoid accepting the premise of impeachment without crime.

It does the fence-sitting republicans no good now to vote against Donald Trump but there is the potential for great harm. I'm thinking republican support will be 100% as they play it safe. Manchin is also treading on dangerous ground by claiming to be open-minded to the lies and deceit perpetrated by the dems. His position in West Virginia will become very shaky if one of the democrat socialists again threatens the coal minding industry and you know those green goblins will go after that early in a democrat presidency.

The Democrats and MSM need a Simon Cowell figure to stop with the garbage and call a spade a spade and jolt them back to reality. It does no one a service by heaping glowing praise on anyone when they are...at best... mediocre. None of the House Managers were eloquent, none were "masterful." They were odious and boring, and as far as "testimony" went it was all hearsay. "My cousins friends brother has an uncle who knew Trumps father from the old neighborhood and he said..." Many of the Democrats are attorneys they KNOW that. Judge Judy would have their heads. What I saw was almost juvenile. If I had given a presentation like that in high school I never would have passed.

#2, I think most of us reacted as you did to that statement about the Dems' "evidence". We saw, and HAVE BEEN seeing a string of lies and innuendos, fabrications out of whole cloth, an outrageous "parody" read into The Record during a House committee hearing. I watched it "live", and I was shouting at the tv... and at the Republicans who sat there... were they stunned into silence? There must be a penalty of some kind for having perpetrated a bunch of fraudulent schemes and plots against POTUS, those who work for him, and us (Citizens, tax-payers). Sure there must be some rational, wise Dem Senators out there?

There is something else to note about this growing reality. Leftist Dems have made the impeachment push supposedly because "If they didn't, Trump would be reelected". That might be taken that they needed to remove him through impeachment and not give voters the choice to vote for him. But there was never really any chance of that happening. It is more likely that they expected to wound Trump via impeachment to keep him from winning the election. The problem is, as with so much the dems do, they botched the process horribly. You can almost feel sorry for them because Trump hasn't given them anything to work with. They had the demented Schiff who shows the willingness and earnestness to boldly and baldly lie so they took their shot with Shiffty's dead fish stare and nerf bullets. It was abysmal to start and the President's team has barely said anything. On Monday and Tuesday they are going to fillet the House Managers and their "case" and cook them up. It will be painfully obvious to rational people that the House impeachment articles are absurd and the Managers are idiots and liars. THEN where do the dems/media/Left go? Impeachment has been their goal since the election. It is over. Humiliation and failure. Now what? Biden has been crippled by his involvement with Ukraine and his own stupidity. Bernie the Communist is DOA to the general election. Warren has been doing a slow desperate fade. All the others are below 10% and are spinning their wheels. The party is fractured and no matter the outcome of the primary will remain so. Trump is stronger than ever. The ongoing DOJ criminal investigations are going to ripen and it is NOT going to come out well for the dems/media. There will be a picture of a very corrupt dem administration that tried to overthrow an election. The dems are already toast and the heat is still on. By November there may only be ashes left.

Most Americans are turned off by the whole dog and pony show. Dems have no viable candidates and impeachment is all they have going on. Constituents should be fighting mad because none of US have had any representation in the past three years. The "managers" are foaming at the mouth full of hate and mine happens to think this is a stepping point for her. Gawd forbid. BTW She wasn't that good as a cop either.

Hard to say what fired and now former National Security Advisor John Bolton is up to these days now that the Senate impeachment trial is on. The latest news is here on the front page of the New York Times, reporting an anonymous "leak": WASHINGTON — President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton.

A North Carolina animal shelter says it has received over 100 applications to adopt a mean pet, after they used some brutal honesty in an ad to adopt out what it is calling the "World's Worst Cat." The shelter says it has received so many calls and messages that it is asking people to be patient while they try to get back to everyone. Mitchell County Animal Rescue wrote on Facebook it thought Perdita "was just sick, turns out she's a jerk." Photos of the cat show she has a distinctive stare that just gives the impression she has no desire to be your friend. The shelter says Perdita's likes include

Communist regimes are famous for concealing inconvenient information and that appears to be the case in China with the spread of the coronavirus, a SARS-linked pneumonia-like flu that reportedly has killed 26, infected nearly a thousand, and spread to to more than a half a dozen countries beyond China, including the U.S. The Chinese have got 20 million people on lockdown in Wuhan and several cities near it, just as the Chinese New Year begins, which is the entire region's biggest holiday. It's pretty obvious the epidemic is spreading anyway. Officials, culpably or not, closed the barn door after the horse got out. According to the Associated Press:

Adam Schiff is a man of very peculiar reasoning. Like a dolt shouting louder at a foreign-language speaker to make him 'understand,' Schiff's decided that if he just keeps talking enough with his long, long, long speeches, we will all suddenly turn into anti-Trumpsters and throw Trump from office. No kidding, he spoke for two and a half hours in his House manager introduction to the Senate impeachment court, the length of which alone was deadly to his case in the age of Twitter. Seriously, two and a half hours. Imagine listening to a dog barking for two and a half hours.... This sentiment pretty well describes how well that went over:

In an interview this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complained that the Democratic Party wasn’t sufficiently leftist because it hasn’t embraced her style of socialism. “There are a lot of true believers that we can ‘capitalism’ our way out of poverty,” she complained. We doubt there are very many such believers remaining in the Democratic Party, given that 70% of those who identify as Democrats now have a positive view of socialism. To the extent that there are any free market capitalists left in the Democratic Party, it’s possible that they are true believers because they’ve seen the data,

So what's the verdict on Michelle Obama's "nasty, rotty" school lunch program, supposedly loaded with green vegetables that somehow went onto the trays gray? We already know the kids couldn't stand it. Remember this? President Trump has decided to at least partially scrap it. According to The Hill: Under the new rules, schools would be allowed to reduce the number of fruits and vegetables required at each meal. The latest change follows a 2019 rollback of restrictions on milk and sodium content in school lunches.

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.

Clinton then went on to become the first failed nominee in modern American history who cannot manage to move on. John McCain returned to the Senate after his loss in 2008 to Barack Obama. John Kerry similarly went back to work in the Senate after the 2004 election and later joined Obama's administration. Al Gore still complains about losing in 2000 to George W. Bush,

Kobe Bryant died in a helicoper crash in Calabasas Sunday morning ... TMZ Sports has confirmed. Kobe was traveling with at least 3 other people in his private helicopter when it went down. A fire broke out. Emergency personnel responded, but nobody on board survived. 5 people are confirmed dead. We're told Vanessa Bryant was not among those on board. The cause of the crash is under investigation. Kobe has famously used a helicopter to travel for years -- dating back to when he played for the Lakers. He was known for commuting from Newport Beach, CA to the STAPLES Center in DTLA in his Sikorsky S-76 chopper.

Deep state players in the Obama administration wove an elaborate tapestry of collusion, subterfuge, and electoral chicanery. While better suited for a Robert Ludlum novel, it played out in real time over the past four years. (snip) Aside from the illegality of deceiving the FISA court, and the seditious efforts to remove a duly elected American president, it blows up all downstream Democrat, media, and deep state efforts to overturn the 2016 election. There is a legal doctrine called the “fruit of the poisonous tree.” To summarize: A doctrine that extends the exclusionary rule to make evidence inadmissible in court if it was derived from evidence that was illegally obtained.

On January 27, 1945, the Red Army took control of Auschwitz away from the Nazis, where more than one million Jewish victims were liquidated that comprised roughly 1/6 of all the murders committed during the Holocaust. 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. After the Operation Reinhard death camps had largely exterminated Polish Jewry by 1943, and since they had started to become a liability with the war effort swinging in favor of the Red Army, Auschwitz, located farther to the west, began killing more
