Impeachment Circus Update

  The Trial of the Century began Tuesday with the House Democrats arguing for subpoenas and whatnot, arguments that mainly rehashed the weeks of testimony in Adam Schiff’s House committee. Nothing new was learned, no “bombshells” were dropped, and I don’t think anyone who nodded off for a nap (as I did) missed much. There […]

Trump Orders U.S. Air Strike That Kills Top Iranian Commander in Baghdad

  Official statement from the Pentagon: At the direction of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive defensive action to protect U.S. personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service […]

Trump Unites Republicans

  In Wednesday night’s “historic” impeachment vote — the cable news people keep repeating that word, for some reason — not a single Republican member of the House voted “yea,” whereas there were three “nay” votes in Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic caucus: Minnesota Rep. Collin C. Peterson and New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew voted against […]

Impeachment Day Arrives

Today the Democrats will vote to impeach President Trump for . . . Uh, whatever. Ever since Trump was elected, Democrats promised they would impeach him if Nancy Pelosi ever got the Speaker’s gavel, and today they will keep that promise. The pretext for this was a “whistleblower” — a Democrat holdover on the National […]

Impeachment Circus Update

  How is it “news” that Democrats are impeaching President Trump, when this outcome was determined in advance? Recall that California Rep. Maxine Waters has been leading chants of “Impeach 45!” since 2017. As soon as Democrats won a majority in Congress, impeachment was foreordained. This is what Democrats voted for, and Nancy Pelosi had […]

Yes, Operation Crossfire Hurricane Was Wrong and Corrupt From the Start

The pretext the FBI used to spied on the Trump campaign was fraudulent — that’s the bottom line of the report Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz delivered this week. Among other things, the IG’s report vindicated Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, who in February 2018 issued a memo detailing the many abuses involved in the […]

Impeachment Circus Update

  Readers will excuse my paucity of commentary about this week’s “historic” impeachment news — CNN keeps repeating the word “historic,” as if we were watching the crash of the Hindenburg in real time — but I was busy destroying the feminist blogosphere. You’re welcome. Anyway, on Monday the Democrats held a hearing in which […]

The Democrats and Their Narrative

Watching the impeachment hearings this morning — Democrat lawyer Daniel Goldman is “testifying,” which is to say lecturing, uninterrupted by questions — one gathers the impression that Democrats believe (a) nothing Hunter Biden did in Ukraine was wrong, (b) it was perfectly OK for Ukraine to “meddle” in the 2016 U.S. election, and (c) it […]
