Adam Schiff Closes Impeachment Trial with
Rant Against Trump: ‘Decency Matters’

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 2/3/2020 8:49:00 PM

Lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) closed his side’s argument for the removal of President Donald Trump with a rambling rhetorical assault on the president.Unwittingly, perhaps, Schiff’s valediction recalled the Army-McCarthy hearings, when lawyer Joseph Welch finally put an end to the overly intrusive investigations of Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-WI) into alleged communist influence in the U.S. government. “You’ve done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” Welch said. Schiff defended the investigative process in the House of Representatives, and declared:

This man has serious mental/psychological problems. I read that he has suggested that President Trump might “give” Alaska to Russian for their help in the 2020 election. What sane person would suggest such a thing? The question answers itself.

The irony of Schiff's channeling of Joe Welch is just stunning. Welch was the prosecutor for the Army that was trying to smear Joe McCarthy for defending his committee counsel, Roy Cohn. Cohn was accused of "colluding" with an Army colonel and using his influence with Sen. McCarthy to get soft duty for Cohn's homosexual lover who was stationed in DC during the Korean War. It was a setup from the beginning and Welch was a well known theatrical lawyer who was famous for baiting high profile defendants into losing their cool on the stand and wrecking their case. He had spent an entire day trying to bait McCarthy into "confessing" his part in the trivial charge and after Joe returned from his usual "liquid lunch" he was an easy mark. When Welch started going after Cohn's indiscreet relationship, McCarthy countered by outing one of Welch's assistant attorneys who had dismissed from his team because of his Communist ties in the past. This had been kept out of the public media due to an agreement between Welch and McCarthy and its revelation led to Welch's famous "Have you no shame, sir" quote that made great TV. As he left the Senate hearing Welch turned to one of his assistants with a sly smirk and exclaimed, "How'd you think I did?". Welch was as much a phony and liar as Schiff and the tactics they both used show how low the Democrats will go to fool people and manipulate public opinion.

You have to wonder, how in the world did such mentally challenged, a compulsive liar, morally corrupt, ethically bankrupt, and a born criminal get elected into such high office. ......blame the people who put him there. America is suffering from malignant cancers. Only the INTENTIONAL removal of these cancers could save America. President Trump is doing a great job in winning, but I wonder if that's enough in weeding out these cancers?

WASHINGTON —The latest on the president's State of the Union speech (all times local):11:05 p.m. The White House and President Donald Trump's reelection campaign are lashing out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for ripping up the president's State of the Union speech. No sooner did Trump finish his address Tuesday night then Pelosi tore it in two, right on the dais behind him. The president had appeared to snub the House speaker before his speech when she extended her hand to him, and he turned back around without acknowledging it. Tim Murtaugh, the communications director for Trump's reelection team, responded: “She might as well rip up any plans for attracting

America's enemies are on the run, America's fortunes are on the rise, and America's future is blazing bright. The years of economic decay are over.

Setting aside the angry, in-your-face delivery, President Trump’s State of the Union speech was tremendously well crafted. Trump made the best possible case for his administration, highlighting the salutary effects of conservative policies. Powered by unsustainable debt and loose monetary policy, but also by smarter tax policies and deregulation, the U.S. economy does indeed boast the best topline numbers in U.S. history. Unshackled by a number of executive orders, health-care costs really are rising far more slowly than they have in many years -- even falling in some areas.

As President Trump concluded his State of the Union address and the cameras began to shift to the congressional audience, one last shot of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripping up the physical copy of Trump’s speech drew attention. (Tweet/Video) This moment, though brief, showed how tensions between the president and the Democratic Party are at an all-time high. Trump spent the early minutes of his address praising his own administration’s accomplishments -- both economic and cultural -- and sharply contrasting them with the failures of the Obama administration. He didn’t mention impeachment, acting almost as if it didn't exist

According to The Intercept, Rear Adm Collin Green, the commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command, will be resigning in September. Green's retirement follows the controversial court-martial of Gallagher who was convicted of posing for a photo with the corpse of a dead ISIS fighter. But a court martial cleared him of murder charges when a medic confessed to the Afghanistan war crime after military prosecutors granted him immunity.

The Iowa caucus data operation just crashed and burned. That means that it could take days to get find out who actually won the Democratic contest – the first of the 2020 presidential election cycle. Gobsmacked candidates have come out to throw confetti, drop balloons, and declare "on to New Hampshire!" There's nothing else to do except to declare victory and move on. No one really knows, right? Joe Biden's lawyers have sent the Iowa caucus organizers a sternly worded letter ordering them not to reveal the winner until the results are cleared with them.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize by two Swedish lawmakers. Thunberg, 17, captured global attention for leading a student strike in her home country of Sweden to raise awareness about climate change. Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, both members of Sweden's Left Party, argued that Thunberg’s international tour to combat climate change is worthy of the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. In nominating Thunberg, Holm and Svenneling said the teenager had “worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.” They argued that reducing emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is “an act of making peace.”

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.”

As I was about to begin writing about the sun shining on President Trump's re-election efforts, a dark cloud passed over my Twitter feed announcing that Rush Limbaugh has advanced lung cancer and will be taking time off for medical treatment. What terrible news for the 30 million–plus weekly "Ditto-heads," faithful listeners to his daily three-hour commentary on news, politics, sports, and popular culture. Rush "made the complex understandable," as he liked to say, using irreverent humor to make his points. It was effortless for Rush, doing all of this with "half his brain tied behind his back."
