Chief Justice John Roberts’ expression was priceless after reading Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s garish question during the Senate impeachment trial Thursday night, a question which lacked any remote sense of self awareness. The inquiry facetiously read, “At a time when large majorities of Americans have lost faith in government, does the fact that the Chief Justice is presiding over an impeachment trial in which Republican senators have thus far refused to allow witnesses or evidence contribute to the loss of legitimacy of the chief justice, the Supreme Court, and the Constitution?” The purpose of the question was stunningly obvious.


Watching Casper Milquetoast Roberts in what passes for action, it doesn’t seem it would take much to intimidate him. That monkey business about Rand Paul’s question was pathetic...

All questions should have been addressed to both counsels. Asking the RAT managers their prepackaged questions allowed them to rant on. Although watching Nadler the Hutt elbowing out Shift Schiff was worth the price of admission.

Justice Roberts response was that in the case of a tie, he would noe weigh-in, and the motion would fail.

Warren is a dangerous creep as is Sanders. This people with power would be the end of this nation. Of course they are not counting in the revolution that would ensue following their policies. The next generation Aoc and company need to be defeated as well.

If that question were posed to a witness in a trial court, the attorney would be held in contempt. On the spot. Because it was written ahead of time and calculated to embarrass the court there would be no sympathy on appeal. And she teaches at Harvard Law School?

The dems have let the thuggish behavior of some of their base bubble up to define the party. As others have said, you CHOOSE whether to be intimidated. The dems still have some power but it is far reduced from what it was, as is their media's. If you cave in to the thugs, you are guaranteed to have lost. Only in resistance can you win and defend the Country, as Trump has vividly demonstrated and is WHY they hate him. I suggest that if a Justice finds it too onerous to defend the law and the integrity of the SCOTUS, that they resign and we will find someone else up to the task. Roberts answered the question well and provided clear explanation to set precedent. The SENATE has the power of trial and to convict, NOT the courts. Also, he correctly pointed out, a 50/50 vote LOSES. That effectively placed a near impossible roadblock in front of the dems to get witnesses. Robert's statement defeated them. Roberts has been a disappointment at times but I give him credit in this.

I've really tried to conceptualize what it is the essence of the Democrat's behavior that angers and frustrates me most. It is their belief that "by any means necessary" gives them the right to ignore the rules of the game and cheat while still exclaiming their moral superiority. They don't care to actually take a vote in the House to legitimize their judicial authority to issue subpoenas. They don't go through a legitimate process to find the truth by following standards of due process and cross examining fact witnesses. They vote to pass campaign finance reforms and then ignore the very laws they established to protect voters. They lecture the Ukrainian Parliament on how they should clean up their corruption while taking bribes from the very oligarchs that were doing the corrupting. Its more than just hypocrisy, its a cynical belief that they really are smarter than the morons that vote for them and they don't have to follow any rules to achieve their ends.

The Democrats no longer support 'innocent before proven guilty'. This is demonstrated in the Kavanaugh hearings where he was accused with unsupported claims of guilt, also on liberal campuses where men are simply accused of sexual misconduct and punished by the schools and in Trump presidency where he was accused of Russian collusion, bribery and numerous dastardly deeds - without proof. Furthermore the Democrats want to remove your 2nd amendment rights and are chipping away at your first amendment right of free speech and due process. I make my case they are unworthy to represent the people. It's time to disenfranchise them at the polls for a generation or two.

The federal judiciary is a political; body without political consequences. It really needs to go. Un-elected, um-accountable, autocratic. Judicial impartiality is a pernicious myth.

Adam Schiff is starting to wear on his own. He may be the darling of leftwing cable news. But like a moth to a candle, the California congressman is sucked into the camera lights, without realizing how he is scorched and consumed. He hijacked the Democratic House impeachment effort and then did the same in the Senate.

On Friday, as I and about 456,874 other people predicted, the Senate voted against calling yet more witnesses in the make-believe, 100 percent certified partisan impeachment fiasco run by the Democrats and their media cheerleaders. That vote brought this lucrative entertainment to an end, de facto if not de jure. The official, signed-sealed-and-delivered end will come Wednesday, we’re told, when the Senate will vote on whether to acquit the president of the two charges on which he was impeached by the House. Spoiler alert: They will. A quick refresher. Those two charges were “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.” Let’s take them in order.

Mike Bloomberg’s daughter Emma has married for the second time, quietly tying the knot with Jeremiah Kittredge, the scandal-scarred former CEO of a group that advocated for charter schools, The Post has learned. Emma, 40, the billionaire’s elder of two daughters, and Kittredge, 33, have kept their wedding a closely-held secret for a year — never announcing the divorce from her first husband or the new nuptials. The marriage was confirmed Saturday amid Bloomberg’s run for the 2020 Democratic president nomination.

A decade ago, Donald Trump was a registered Democrat. When he joined the presidential race as a Republican in 2015, party leaders scorned him as a gatecrasher and sought to stop his rise. The same Republican establishment now has rescued Trump’s presidency.(Snip)The acquittal will not only cement Trump’s reputation for surviving an onslaught of political perils. It also highlights how the former political neophyte has come to utterly dominate the GOP, with Republican lawmakers bowed by his overwhelming popularity with the party’s base. “He has taken over the party in very short order,” (Snip)“It was almost immediate after he won the election.

Senate impeachment trial manager Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is "asleep at the wheel" when it comes to his own district and is ignoring issues that matter, like the state's homeless crisis, Dr. Drew. Pinsky said Thursday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, Pinsky said he started thinking that maybe he should run against Schiff because, every day he doesn't do something, three more homeless people die in the county of Los Angeles. While Pinsky said he is "categorically not running" for Schiff's seat, he couldn't ignore the crisis unfolding in front of him.

House Impeachment Manager and House Oversight Chairman Adam Schiff warned Monday that President Donald Trump might give Alaska to the Russians if he is not impeached. Schiff disagreed with the president’s lawyers, who argued that Trump’s actions were not criminal and should thus not be considered impeachable. He warned that they were setting a precedent that would only encourage Trump to pursue “unacceptable” actions if exonerated. “Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election,” he said. “Or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago personally and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war.”

If Steve Bannon is correct (and I think he probably is), Michael Bloomberg has no intention of occupying the Oval Office; his real plan is far more devious and frightening. Bloomberg is investing a small fraction of his fortune (Bannon says it is now $70 billion) in a “leveraged buyout” of the party, installing himself as the oligarch who calls the shots, including the selection of the candidate to win the presidency. Forget the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on the “Mike will get it done” ads saturating the airwaves and the Super Bowl ad touting gun control.
Tax season kicks off

Tax season kicked off Monday, and the biggest question on most taxpayers’ minds is how quickly they will get their refunds. Receiving a refund can normally take up to six weeks, but staffing issues at the agency might make that turnaround time much longer. Customer service is a big part of making tax seasons successful, and the Internal Revenue Service is one of the lowest-scoring agencies in that area, according to the Taxpayer Advocate Service annual report to Congress for 2019. Budget cuts are a contributing factor to the IRS’s poor customer service — it's harder to garner more hires with less money. Agency head count has fallen by 20%

Nobody elected John Bolton to anything. That reality is at the core of what appeared to frustrate Mr. Bolton and numerous other senior presidential aides during my time working in the West Wing for President Trump. As a staffer, if you have a policy disagreement with the president, you have two options: You either subordinate your views to his and fulfill his wishes — or you quit. That does not mean you shy away from making your case behind closed doors — and in my experience the president encouraged dissenting views — but once the president makes a decision, it is your job to execute it
