Schiff, Pelosi Trash President Trump On Intel IG Firing

President Trump on Friday fired Intel community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. Atkinson had been long under fire for forwarding the corrupt and illegitimate report on the Ukrainian phone call that led to the impeachment hoax. The firing is long overdue.

At Saturday’s coronavirus briefing the president said of Atkinson, “He did a terrible job. Absolutely terrible… A total disgrace.” But the Democrats do not agree.

“Trump’s dead of night decision to fire ICIG Michael Atkinson is another blatant attempt to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

“This latest act of reprisal against the Intelligence Community threatens to have a chilling effect against all willing to speak truth to power. The President must immediately cease his attacks on those who sacrifice to keep America safe, particularly during this time of national emergency,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said.

“Michael Atkinson is a man of integrity who has served our nation for almost two decades. Being fired for having the courage to speak truth to power makes him a patriot,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a statement.

The president responded, “As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as President, have power of appointment, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as Inspectors General,” the president said in the letter announcing the firing. “That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”

The Democrats are going back to their losing impeachment script because that is all they have during this national crisis that has seen the president’s popularity soar.

They will try other tired, worn gambits. The American public isn’t listening to their propaganda. They have other things on their minds.

Pelosi And Schumer Play Politics While Americans Die

The Democrats have done a lot of despicable things as of late: The Russian hoax, the Mueller probe, the impeachment scam, trying to socialize our healthcare system (Can you imagine today, if they had been successful?), their open borders policy, and many other travesties too numerous to mention outside of a tome.

But this, this…holding up aid to working families because the Senate economic rescue package does not contain socialist boondoggles, has to be the worst thing they have ever done in modern history.

Fox News reports that GOP senators are expressing outrage on the floor of the Senate: “The country is burning, and your side wants to play political games,” said Senate Majority Whip John Thune, (R-SD). “It is time to get this done. The American people expect us to act, they need action. We need to get this done for the American people. Here we are dilly-dallying around. This bill is about workers, families, people out there hurting economically—we’re in a position to do something about it and it is high time that we did.”

Watch Thune during this crisis. He has long been respected in DC. He could be making a national name for himself.

“Republicans understand that a national crisis calls for urgency and calls for bipartisanship,” GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said. “It’s time for Democrats to stop playing politics and step up to the plate… We’re at war with no ammo. Democrats are talking about this as if it is some juicy political opportunity. This is not a juicy political opportunity… This has got to stop and today’s the day it has to stop. The country is out of time.”

McConnell is right. Democrats like Nancy Pelosi (CA) and Chuck Schumer (NY) see this as just another chance to fatten the coffers of their pet radical groups and special interests. This while millions could go without jobs and paychecks. They are playing a dangerous game. They will likely lose.

Mark Levin Blasts Pelosi and Schumer as the ‘Last People I Want Playing Doctor With Me or the American People’

Conservative talk host Mark Levin blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democrats overall on Thursday for their criticism of President Trump’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

‘The last people I want playing doctor with me or the American people are Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’

“I watch this and I realize there’s a lot of stupid people on TV,” Levin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “The last people I want playing doctor with me or the American people are Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.”

Levin then read a number of things Trump has done since the outbreak began, even as Democrats accuse the administration for not having a good response.

“There’s no CDC cuts. There’s been [funding] increases,” Levin said. “Certain individuals have been quarantined by this president — the first time a U.S. president has done that in over half a century. The White House coronavirus task force was appointed over a month ago. The president temporarily suspended entry into the United States.”

Democrats Should Have Been More Worried About Coronavirus Than Impeachment

Levin said that while Trump’s team worked feverishly to contain the virus, Democrats were too busy worrying about the impeachment trial.

“From January 16 to February 5, the United States Senate was paralyzed by the House Democrats and Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi with this outrageous impeachment trial where the Senators had to sit on their hands, shut their mouths and couldn’t pass any business,” Levin charged.

“They couldn’t address the coronavirus because Pelosi and Schumer shut down the Congress,” he continued. “They don’t want to talk about that, do they?”

Levin then slammed the 2020 Democratic field.

Liberals Have No Answers

“The Democrats, they go to the microphone and they attack. They don’t know anything,” Levin said. “What is their plan? What is the Schumer-Pelosi-[Bernie] Sanders – [Amy] Klobuchar- [Michael] Bloomberg whatever plans? They have great plans for containment. Open borders, eliminate ICE, no vetting of foreigners, sanctuary cities, nationalize and destroy the greatest healthcare system, destroy our pharmaceutical companies … that will come up with the solutions? ”

“The answers won’t come from the liberals and the Democrats,” Levin added, “which is why they attack.”

Warren: We Need to Start Impeachment Proceedings For AG Barr

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is calling on the House to commence impeachment proceedings if Attorney General Bill Barr does not willingly resign.

Barr has been the subject of scorn after the Department of Justice opted – rightfully – to reduce the amount of jail time requested by federal prosecutors for Roger Stone, a former associate of President Trump.

The DOJ, independently of the President’s own complaints, sought reduction of the “extreme” sentencing request of nine years.

The left has wantonly drawn a line between a tweet from Trump calling the recommendation of nine years to be a “miscarriage of justice” and Barr’s actions in taking charge of a case that had gone off the rails.

As former Rep. Trey Gowdy notes, “There are child pornographers, people who rob banks who do not get nine years.”

Still, the chain of events led four career prosecutors to quit the case after the DOJ revealed their plans.

Now, Warren is demanding Barr either resign or face impeachment.

Warren: Barr Has to Go

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Warren suggested she was so distraught over Barr’s actions that she didn’t even want to discuss the election. You know, the one she’s embarrassingly floundering in right now.

“I have to say I know everybody wants to talk about the horse race, but the thing that is really getting to me right now is what’s going on over at the Justice Department,” claimed Warren.

“The whole notion that we have people in our Justice Department resigning because Donald Trump’s inappropriate influence and the attorney general overturning a sentencing of Donald Trump’s cronies,” she lamented.

He’s not overturning a sentencing, he’s overturning a recommendation of sentencing, a vastly different accusation from Ms. Warren.

“You know, right in front of our eyes, we are watching a descent into authoritarianism,” she claimed without evidence. “And this just seems like a moment to me everybody should be speaking up.”

More Democrats ARE Speaking Up

With the group-think paranoia gripping the Democrat party today, the notion that Warren’s call for resignation or impeachment is a novel one is laughable.

“Senate Democrats have called on Attorney General William Barr to resign or face impeachment,” Yahoo News reported, “after President Donald Trump appeared to confirm that Barr had intervened in the case against the president’s longtime friend Roger Stone.”

Of course, that’s a garbage assessment by Yahoo, as the President merely congratulated the attorney general for “taking charge.” There is zero evidence that Barr actually intervened on Trump’s behalf.

Regardless, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) told NBC News that Barr has “no choice” but to resign because he’s “acting simply as a henchman of the president.”

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has demanded an investigation.

Gowdy, a former House Oversight Committee Chair, opined that calls for Barr’s resignation are the “dumbest damn thing I’ve ever heard.”

Calls for impeachment, we’re assuming, are even dumber.

Rand Paul Slams Chuck Schumer, Says Trump Should Sue Him for Defamation

During an interview on Fox News Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul became incensed over Senator Chuck Schumer’s recent comments, advocating for President Donald Trump to sue the New York Democrat for defamation.

“You know, I’m offended and shocked that Schumer would be so scurrilous as to accuse the president and his children of making money illegally off of politics when the only people we know have made money off of this have been Hunter Biden and Joe Biden,” Paul said.

Rand Paul: We Know Hunter Biden Has Made Millions

“So Hunter Biden makes a million dollars a year, that’s documented, but Schumer simply creates and makes up and says, ‘Oh, maybe the president’s kids are making money,’” Paul went on. “John Bolton is making money as we speak. He has probably already gotten the several million dollar advance for this book. He’s making money by testifying against the president.”

We Know John Bolton is Making Money

“The only people we know who have actually made money? Hunter Biden and now John Bolton,” Paul continued. “And they’re not objective–John Bolton is not objective in any way now that he’s cashing million dollar checks. To have Schumer come up and say out of the blue, ‘Maybe the president’s kids are making money,’ with no evidence at all, that’s defamation and they ought to sue him.”

Paul is correct that Sen. Schumer has suggested–with zero evidence–that President Trump’s family may have been making money abroad.

Trump SHOULD Sue Schumer!

“There is nothing in the record about the president’s kids,” Paul said. “So Schumer has just created this whole thing out of whole cloth and said, ‘Oh, why don’t we go after the president’s kids?’ We don’t know yet whether or not the president’s dealings with the Chinese president have something to do with the Trumps making money.’ He just made it up! Completely made it up! That’s defamation of character and he ought to go to court and be sued for it.”

Rand Paul has been a staunch defender of President Trump throughout the impeachment process, even going so far as to threaten forcing a vote to have Hunter Biden and the CIA whistleblower testify.

Who knows? That could happen.

Donald Trump could even eventually sue Chuck Schumer, too.

Trump Trial Winners and Losers: We’ll Help You Decide

By David Kamioner | January 22, 2020

In a couple of hours, we’re again diving into what may become another late-night session in the Senate trial of President Donald Trump.

But before that news eclipses last night’s events, let’s look at an overview of Monday’s hijinks and see how they played out legally and politically.

Presidential lawyers Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow knocked it out of the park yesterday in their defense of the president. Cipollone especially shined as he had just the right mix of scholarly demeanor and lawyerly aggression.

He knocked down Dem arguments like swatting away slow-learning gnats and his consistent success at the podium drove Dems to fits of agitation. That agita made Jerry Nadler lose it at the end, as we covered in a previous piece.

Adam Schiff fared no better, as his personal mannerisms got truly odd as the trial wore on.

He seemed not to know what to do with his hands at the rostrum, first holding them together, then kneading them against one another in scenes that made him look like Lady MacBeth in a bad suit.

The Dems used a PowerPoint demonstration that would have embarrassed a third grader as they trudged from point to redundant point not ever moving enough Republicans by their exertions to win the vote on a single amendment.

In fact, during the entire night, they got one Republican one time, Susan Collins of Maine, to break ranks. It didn’t matter and the GOP won that vote too.

It seems the Dems are not playing to the Senate, as they almost admitted a couple of times. They are playing to the media, to give them their talking points, and to the fall election. The agitprop bullets you see on the screen at the trial you will see again in Dem messaging in the fall election.

Speaking of that benighted political group, three of their coterie, Senators Warren, Sanders, and Klobuchar, must be seething in their seats as the trial promises to bleed into long days, longer nights, and has the potential to go weeks.

That will keep the trio off the campaign trail in Iowa and New Hampshire and is a serious boon to Joe Biden and the rest of the Dem field.

Whether Chuck Schumer has intentionally designed it that way is an interesting idea to contemplate.

Chief Justice Roberts Forced to Play Referee During Impeachment Trials

By David Kamioner | January 22, 2020

Tuesday’s first day of the Senate trial of President Donald Trump was a relatively boring affair, up until almost the end.

The GOP shield wall held up on vote after vote, losing only one member, Collins of Maine, one time on a small procedural matter. At the end of the night, the score was Trump 11, the Dems 0.

Fans of the president cheered and chortled on social media as 11 out of 11, save the one noted above, pathetic Schumer amendments were shot down in flames on 53-47 party line votes.

After a night of that kind of battering the Dems started to lose their equilibrium. You could see it in Schiff. He began to oddly glare at the GOP lawyers as if he could conjure up a death stare that would make them cease and desist legally beating him like a rug.

They didn’t seem to even notice him.

At almost the end, not long before 1am, the Dems could stand it no longer.

The frustration that they were convincing no Republican in the Senate to break party ranks enough to give them even one victory overwhelmed the already delicate sensibilities of Dem House Manager Jerry Nadler. He let loose.

He called GOP legal actions “treacherous.” Nadler claimed the Senate was engaged in a “cover-up” and that “only guilty people try to hide evidence.” He went on to say that “the Senate is on trial” and asked if they would “betray your pledge to be an impartial juror.”

The president’s personal lawyer struck back hard.

“We’ve made our arguments to you. And you don’t deserve, and we don’t deserve, what just happened. Mr. Nadler came up here and made false allegations against our team. He made false allegations against all of you; he accused you of a cover-up. He’s been making false allegations against the president. The only one who should be embarrassed, Mr. Nadler is you, for the way you’ve addressed the United States Senate. This is the United States Senate. You’re not in charge here. … It’s about time we bring this power trip in for a landing,” said Cipollone.

It got so heated that Chief Justice John Roberts, presiding over the trial, had to warn both sides on their language. He scolded, “Those addressing the Senate should remember where they are.”

The night ended soon after with complete GOP victory and Dem loss. Day two starts in mere hours.
