The Democrats do not even pretend that their impeachment game is fair or actually about fact finding. This is simply about using a grant of power in the Constitution arbitrarily and politically, outside the bounds of due process and the purpose of that authority.
Boudin’s politics are likely the result of his upbringing, as the 39-year-old was raised by violent left-wing activists:
Boudin’s political leanings are fairly unsurprising. San Francisco’s newest DA and self-proclaimed socialist is the son of former members of the violent revolutionary far-left group Weather Underground, an organization that rose to infamy in the 1970s and carried out as many as two dozen bombings of government properties. Both of Boudin’s parents were imprisoned for murders related to a robbery they conducted as Weathermen, and Boudin’s father David Gilbert is still serving time.
Steve Scalise: Direct quote from the Dems’ public show hearing: “Hearsay can be much better evidence than direct.”
In what universe is hearsay better than direct evidence??
Nancy Pelosi’s House of Representatives apparently.
This “hearing” is a total sham.
Gosar took it to the next level in a string of impeachment-related tweets on Wednesday. The first letter of each tweet spells out the phrase.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) “blockbuster” impeachment hearing, particularly the first hour, did not appear to live up to the hype.
Republican lawmakers wasted no time, taking advantage of their opportunities and questioning the chairman and the unprecedented power he has brandished throughout the impeachment inquiry thus far.
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii) on Tuesday called for liberal activists to believe in climate change as if it were a “religion.”
Hirono said on Tuesday that liberals will need to show zeal for environmental issues if they are going to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020. At an event hosted by the Center for American Progress, Hirono told the audience to “Believe in climate change as though it’s a religion, it’s not, it’s science.”
Attorney General William Barr said the release of an internal watchdog investigation into whether the FBI followed its own policies and the law when it applied for a warrant to surveil President Trump’s campaign starting in 2016 is “imminent.”
Last week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez casually mentioned that if nothing is done about carbon emissions, Miami would disappear “in a few years” due to climate change.
AOC is hardly alone in making spectacularly stupid predictions about global climate catastrophe. The Competitive Enterprise Institute has compiled a list of the best, the worst, the funniest, and the most banal predictions from climate change hysterics that somehow, someway, never quite managed to come true
President Donald Trump has relieved over 8,000 Veterans Affairs employees for failing their duty since becoming the president, according to VA Secretary Robert Wilkie.
“The standard is if you don’t live up to your oath if you don’t live up to the standards that our veterans expect, that you will be asked to leave,” Wilkie told reporters in a press conference on Friday. “This is a transformational moment in our history.”
I do think the issue of loyalty to America in a narrow but important sense is at the crux of many of the debates about Donald Trump and his administration. Trump’s presidency has been unfortunately defined by the emergence of senior government officials who are quite open about demonstrating loyalty to the administrative state, up to and including criminal acts and abuses of power, over the imperatives of a democratically elected president.
