Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, warned on Monday that if President Trump's dealings with Ukraine are not impeachable offenses, then nothing would stand in his way from attempting bolder power grabs -- going so far to claim Trump could use Alaska as a bargaining chip with "the Russians" for support in 2020.

That does it. If Trump is going to sell Alaska to the Russians he must be impeached now. The biggest service the President has done for the country is to out these lunatics for exactly who they are. He has goaded them to the point where they have literally lost their minds.

Shiff is a full blown loon and that is the most positive thing I can say about him. How is he the best and brightest and capable of effectively serving as a Senator? He makes stuff up and then presents them with his wild looking eyes bugging out. I am not afraid of President Trump, but Shiff and several other looney tunes in the House and Senate scare me to death.

Sorry Shiffty, we bought it fair and square and have the receipt to prove it, and all sales are final. No exchanges or returns. Besides, if we gave away Alaska, we wouldn't have anyplace to send Vindman, McMasters, Bolton, et al. (Gitmo is too pleasant IMO.)

For that matter, Trump might even give away the Panama Canal that was an engineering marvel of American can-do-ism. Oh wait. I forgot that Jimmy Carter already gave it away.

Schiff actually was serious. I had to listen to it directly to believe that anyone could be that absurd, but Schiff produced. He is and has been on his own planet, a figment of his imagination, but one who another enigma, Nancy Pelosi, has great confidence in. Nancy and Adam, what a pair of losers who have risen to Democrat party leadership. That Republicans have ever lost to these idiots is as equally absurd. Trump is having nothing to do with that history.

Despite what veneers he puts on publicly, Schiff can't be so stupid as to think that he isn't going to get the lion's share of the blame for this whole impeachment mess....him, and that walking Rump Roast, Nadler....and is grasping at any straw to try to save his pencil neck. And to think...he wants to be a Senator. I hope California is not so far gone mentally as to put him there.

What Adam Schiff and his team have done is so serious that it should not be dismissed as simply “politics as usual.” This man, this team, sought to remove President Trump from office. The so-called parody of Adam Schiff and the telephone call between President Trump and President Zelensky was not only outrageous, it was immoral and criminal; the seriousness of the impeachment hearings is not a place for parody. Whether Adam Schiff’s purpose in this latest outrageous Alaska claim is his flair for sensationalism, or an indication of a mental disorder, such overall behavior, such comportment, is inappropriate for a member of Congress and should be appropriately addressed subject to censure or, if possible, removal from Congress. For this team to seek to overturn an election, to threaten a President and his family, to snare people associated with President Trump to pursue legal charges and/or incarceration, to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on a personal/party vendetta, to disrupt and waste the time and effort of the daily functioning of Congress, to impact the U. S. Supreme Court due to the mandate of the Chief Justice overseeing an impeachment trial, should not and cannot be dismissed as “politics as usual.”

That he was serious, just shows how un-serious today's Democrat leaders really are about common problems. Heck, Rep. Bull Schiff simply allowed Nestle to close their U.S. headquarters and leave to Virginia. Imagine all those high-paying corporate jobs that used to be in his district, and the prestige of having a major global corporation in your district, and not give a hoot.

Instead, this source said, the interview will mainly consist of technical questions. The news is sure to disappoint some of President Trump's most ardent supporters who believe Brennan and other top officials in the Obama administration

Hillary Clinton leveled a jocular broadside against New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd on Saturday, pointing out that the writer appeared to forget wholesale that Clinton chose a man to run as her vice president during the 2016 election. Writing on the 1984 vice presidential candidacy of Geraldine Ferraro ahead of Joe Biden's announcement of a female running mate, Dowd in a Saturday column wrote that it had been "36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket." That claim ignored the 2016 presidential election,

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.

Lightfoot posted a social media showing several individuals, many of them who appeared to not be abiding by social distancing guidelines, in a grassy area near boat docks. "It's called a pandemic, people," the mayor tweeted. "This reckless behavior on Montrose Beach is what will cause us to shut down the parks and lakefront. Don't make us take steps backwards." The mayor also tweeted she "stopped by to see for herself," and the situation is being addressed.
