Nancy Pelosi just got spanked by the Supreme Court in a new impeachment ruling. Pelosi has rushed the impeachment proceedings for political reasons, not legal.
She knows impeachment is a loser so she is trying to rush it so the Dems can be done with it by the end of January 2020.
Pelosi hopes that in the following months the Dems can repair the damage they are doing with impeachment by hoping the American voters will forget it in time for the 2020 election.
It is political cowardice and the GOP has called her out for rushing. Jonathon Turley ripped Pelosi and the Dems for not bothering to subpoena witnesses and records and go through the courts to get them.
There is nothing more serious than an impeachment so Pelosi should follow the law and allow Trump due process to fight.
Which is exactly what the Supreme Court just decided in a crushing blow to the Dems. They agreed and in doing so basically destroyed one the Dems charges – obstruction.
Trump can’t obstruct until he runs out of appeals and court actions and not one day before.
So out goes one article of impeachment leaving only abuse of power. But as Ukraine is corrupt and Presidents routinely hold up aid for various reasons but mainly corruption, the Dems need to go back to the drawing board or drop impeachment all together.
At least according to noted legal scholar Alan Dershowitz.
Alan wrote: “The decision by the Supreme Court to review the lower court rulings involving congressional and prosecution subpoenas directed toward President Trump undercuts the second article of impeachment approved by the House Judiciary Committee along a party line vote last week.
That second article of impeachment charges President Trump with obstruction of Congress for refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas in the absence of a final court order. In so charging him, the House Judiciary Committee has arrogated to itself the power to decide the validity of its subpoenas, as well as the power to determine whether claims of executive privilege must be recognized, both powers that properly belong with the judicial branch of our government, not the legislative branch. The full House of Representatives will do likewise, if it votes to approve the articles, as is expected to occur on Wednesday.
President Trump has asserted that the executive branch, of which he is the head, need not comply with congressional subpoenas requiring the production of privileged material, unless there is a final court order compelling such production. He has argued, appropriately, that the judicial branch is the ultimate arbiter of conflicts between the legislative and executive branches. Thus, the Supreme Court decision to review these three cases, in which lower courts ruled against President Trump, provides support for his constitutional arguments in the inquiry.”
Alan goes on with a devastating argument:
“If the high court were eventually to rule against the claims by President Trump, the very fact that the justices decided to hear them, in effect, supports his constitutional contention that he had the right to challenge congressional subpoenas in court, or to demand that those issuing the subpoenas seek to enforce them through the courts.
It undercuts the contention by House Democrats that President Trump committed an impeachable offense by insisting on a court order before sending possibly privileged material to Congress. Even before the justices granted review of these cases, the two articles of impeachment had no basis in the Constitution. They were a reflection of the comparative voting power of the two parties, precisely what one of the founders, Alexander Hamilton, warned would be the “greatest danger” of an impeachment.
House Democrats should seriously consider dropping this second article in light of the recent Supreme Court action. In fairness, this development involving the high court occurred after Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee made up their minds to include obstruction of Congress as an impeachment article. Yet the new circumstances give some Democratic members of Congress, who may end up paying an electoral price for supporting the House Judiciary Committee recommendation, a reason for voting against at least one of the articles.
It would be a smart way out for them. More important, it would be the right thing for them to do. It would be smart and right because, as matters now stand, the entire process smacks of partisanship, with little concern for the precedential impact of these articles on future impeachments. If a few more Democrats voted in a way that demonstrates some nuanced recognition that, at the least, the second article of impeachment represents an overreach based on current law, it would lend an aura of some nonpartisan legitimacy to this process.
The first article goes too far in authorizing impeachment based on the vague criterion of abuse of power. But it is the second article that truly endangers our system of checks and balances and the important role of the courts as umpires between the legislative and executive branches. It would serve the national interest for thoughtful and independent minded Democrats to join Republicans in voting against the second article of impeachment, even if they wrongly vote for the first.”

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough went after First Lady Melania Trump on Thursday, slamming her for defending her 13 year-old son Barron the previous day from attacks that came from Democratic impeachment witness Pamela Karlan.

Daily Mail reported that Scarborough accused Melania of exhibiting “faux outrage” over Karlan’s comments about her son. As soon as Karlan brought up Barron’s name during her testimony, Melania took to Twitter to defend the child.

“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,” Melania tweeted. “Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”

On “Morning Joe” the next morning, Scarborough called the First Lady out.

“By the way, Melania Trump, I’m still waiting for her to ask her husband to apologize for face-shaming my wife, lying about my wife, saying that she was bleeding badly from a facelift, taking a personal conversation, a private conversation and she … never did anything,” he said. “I think she actually attacked Mika. And for her husband lying and face-shaming and talking about, you know, seriously … think about all the people that Donald Trump has attacked viciously and Melania Trump has quietly sat by and said nothing.”

Scarborough was referring to a tweet President Donald Trump posted about his wife Mika Brzezinski back in June of 2017.

“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore),” Trump wrote at the time. “Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

Scarborough and Brzezinski fired back by claiming that she “never had a face-lift” while conceding that she did “have a little skin under her chin tweaked, but this was hardly a state secret.”

Karlan, a Stanford Law professor, was widely criticized for bringing up Barron during her testimony on Wednesday.

“Kings could do no wrong because the King’s word was law, but contrary to what President Trump says, Article II does not give him the power to do anything he wants,” Karlan said. “The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he cannot make him a baron.”

Karlan apologized for her comments hours later.

“I want to apologize earlier for what I said earlier about the president’s son,” Karlan said. “I wish the President would apologize, obviously, for the things he’s done that’s wrong but I do regret having said that.”

NOTE: This is all original color film, not black and white film that has been colored, or stock footage made by a studio. This is the only known real color film of the attack on Pearl Harbor.This COLOR footage of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was shot by CWO4 Clyde Daughtry. The original footage has since been lost, and the poor quality of this footage is due to the fact that it is a copy.

Among the many valuable portions of this footage are shots of USS Nevada (BB-36) underway and firing back at Japanese aircraft, USS Oglala (CM-4) rolling over and sinking, and USS St. Louis underway (CL-4).

Over 3,000 American lives were lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. It was this attack that brought the United States into the Second World War.

Nancy dared to impeach Trump – now he’s draining their Democrat swamp!

Nancy Pelosi announced today that they will be drafting articles of impeachment against the president.
There’s a very good chance that House Democrats will vote against the president. It’ll seal their fate, but hey, we’re talking about Democrats.
There was something Nancy was forgetting, though: the president’s trump card.

And now he plans on using it.
From Fox News:
President Trump on Thursday challenged House Democrats to impeach him “fast” and ship the process over to the Senate, where he threatened to seek testimony from top Democrats including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi…
“We will have Schiff, the Bidens, Pelosi and many more testify, and will reveal, for the first time, how corrupt our system really is.”
Uh-oh! Did Pelosi think Trump was going to sit back and let Democrats destroy our democracy?
If the House votes to impeach, the Senate will hold a trial. Every last person Schiff tried to protecting during his bogus hearings will be forced to testify.
We will finally hear from Schiff, Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and Pelosi herself. We might even finally get to lay our eyes on this so-called whistleblower: the partisan that started this all.
Reports indicate that Lindsey Graham and other Republican senators are already preparing. They are gathering up documents on what Biden and other Democrats were up to with Ukraine.
The entire party might be exposed in a very serious way. Any real crimes and wrongdoing will be brought before the American people.
Something tells me that Democrats will not come out very pretty in all this.
What will we learn when Republicans put the screws of Schiff, Biden, and Pelosi? Everything they tried to hide will come spilling out, big time.
If Pelosi had been smart, she would have quietly dismissed impeachment before the year was out.
But now? She’s really stepped in it, hasn’t she?
SHARE if you’re ready to see these Democrats forced to take the stand!

President Donald Trump and Queen Elizabeth have a very friendly relationship–and the Queen isn’t afraid to scold members of her own family for not treating the Trumps with respect.

93-year-old Queen Elizabeth gave the stink eye to her daughter, Princess Anne, for not greeting Trump and his wife First Lady Melania Trump when they visited Buckingham Palace. The First Family from the US was there after spending the day at the NATO summit in London.

As Trump chatted with Elizabeth, Charles, and Camilla, Princess Anne was standing awkwardly in the doorway–she didn’t greet the president or his wife.

The Queen saw her daughter being rude, and did not look amused. Anne looked at her mother, shrugged, and awkwardly laughed.

The exchange quickly went viral online.

First Lady Melania Trump just spoke out to slam Democratic impeachment witness Pamela Karlan for negatively bringing up her 13 year-old son Barron’s name during her testimony today.

“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,” Melania tweeted, according to The Hill. “Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”

This came hours after Karlan, a Stanford University law school professor and expert witness called by House Judiciary Committee Democrats, used Barron to attack the conduct of his father President Donald Trump during her testimony.

“Kings could do no wrong because the King’s word was law, but contrary to what President Trump says, Article II does not give him the power to do anything he wants,” Karlan said. “The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he cannot make him a baron.”

Backlash against Karlan’s comments were swift, with many pointing out that Democrats should not be bringing a 13 year-old child into their impeachment efforts.

“Only in the minds of crazed liberals is it funny to drag a 13-year-old child into the impeachment nonsense,” Trump campaign national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement. “Pamela Karlan thought she was being clever and going for laughs, but she instead reinforced for all Americans that Democrats have no boundaries when it comes to their hatred of everything related to President Trump.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham also spoke out to call the move “classless.”

“Classless move by a Democratic ‘witness,'” Grisham tweeted. “Prof Karlan uses a teenage boy who has nothing to do with this joke of a hearing (and deserves privacy) as a punchline. And what’s worse, it’s met by laughter in the hearing room. What is being done to this country is no laughing matter.”

Though Melania rarely comments on political matters, she has also made it clear from the start that she believes firmly that her young son should be kept off-limits from attacks.

It was only a matter of time after Democrats grabbed all of the power in Virginia for them to begin to enact a radical left-wing agenda.

And it should serve as a warning for the voters of any state to pay attention to so they know what is headed their way if they make this mistake.

The first step that Virginia lawmakers are doing, and they have a good chance of enacting with their Democrat governor, is confiscating guns from those who legally own their firearms.

“Virginia spoke and we’re going to listen and we’re going to take action,” Gov. Ralph Northam said in November after his party gained control of the legislature, The Washington Post reported.

You may remember the name of Gov. Northam from the time, this year, where he was caught in old photos wearing blackface and did not resign.

On the issue of guns, the governor cited eight bills that he referred to as “common-sense” for his legislature to get started on.

He discussed an outright ban on what Democrats call “assault rifles,” otherwise known to people who know about firearms as “semi-automatic rifles.”

He also talked about the red herring of universal background checks, a ban on high capacity magazines and bringing back a law that allows buyers to only purchase one gun in a one month span.

But most frightening on the list of proposals is the much ballyhooed red flag laws, laws that allow the government to confiscate legally owned firearms from individuals who are deemed to be a danger to themselves or to the community.

“We will at least start with those,” the man known by some as the blackface governor said ominously.

And the governor was not done there. When asked by reporters if he would confiscate legally owned “assault weapons” he said he is working on it.

“That’s something I’m working [on] with our secretary of public safety,” the governor said. “I’ll work with the gun violence activists, and we’ll work [on] that. I don’t have a definitive plan today.”

Now Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski said on Monday that the Democrat legislature has started the process of creating a confiscation bill.

“Meanwhile Virginia Democrats are filing bills to make the possession of millions of currently-owned firearms illegal. SB16 bans possession of many rifles without any grandfathering provision which means it’s confiscation,” he said with a link to the bill.

Picking apart the bill you notice that it bans the “importation, sale, possession, etc., of assault firearms” and includes no grandfather clause that would allow those who own them to keep them.

And the definition of what is an assault weapon includes virtually every semi-automatic shotgun and rifle, bringing Democrats one step closer to having only muskets be legal as has appeared to be their goal.

“It is unlawful for any person to import, sell, manufacture, purchase, possess, or transport an assault firearm. A violation of this section is punishable as a Class 6 felony,” the bill said.

Philip Van Cleave, the president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League said it best in an interview with The Free Beacon when he discussed citizens who are prepared to fight back in the courts against the Democrat gun confiscation agenda.

“I’ve never seen anything like this, and I’ve been doing this for over 20 years,” he said. “It’s a sleeping giant that had been pretty much not paying attention to politics, and now they’re awake, and now they’re flooding these sanctuary county hearings. Flooding them.”

Republicans didn’t think Trump would pick her for 2020 – WOW!

2020 is just a few weeks away, and the Democrats still are scrambling.
As they try to find a frontrunner for the election, Donald Trump’s campaign is on a roll. The last few months, they broke records in fundraising.
The Democrats will have a hard time catching up.

The president is known for picking the very best for his team. Only stars can serve Donald Trump, especially during his crucial re-election bid.
So, the president has his eyes on his former U.N. ambassador, Nikki Haley. And he just announced her role.
From The State:
Tuesday, Trump’s campaign arm and the Republican Finance Committee announced Gov. Henry McMaster and former governor and ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will help co-lead Trump’s South Carolina team ahead of the November general election.
Also joining the team is Republican U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott and U.S. Reps. Jeff Duncan, Ralph Norman, Tom Rice, William Timmons and Joe Wilson.
Few patriots have forgotten Haley’s vital role in reshaping our country’s involvement in the U.N.
Under her leadership, we pulled out of various groups that were throwing our money away. The United States cut back it’s support for the U.N., which many Americans believe is corrupt.
Haley proved herself as a strong, no-nonsense leader. She appears fearless, even when facing off against world leaders and diplomats.
Many speculated that she would return to the Trump team after her time in the U.N. Some even speculated she would be his next running mate.
Instead, she will be headed to her home state to ensure South Carolina stays red.
Democrats have plenty of dirty tricks of their sleeves to pull out a win, even in conservative regions.
The presence of Nikki Haley, among others, will ensure South Carolina gives Trump a landslide victory.
After that, who knows what will be next for Haley? But I’m sure Trump won’t forget her.
SHARE to thank Republicans like Nikki Haley for helping Trump win 2020!

Adam thought Trump was too far away – watch out, Schiff!

It looks like Adam Schiff has lost all sense of human decency. President Trump is thousands of miles away, negotiating with our NATO allies. He is brokering important deals that will shape global defense.
And what is Schiff doing? He’s releasing his impeachment report against the president.
Despite a lackluster two months of hearings—Schiff insists he has “ironclad” proof that Trump committed impeachable offenses. Oh really, Schiff? Why haven’t we seen any of this?

His hearings only showed that there is not enough clear evidence that Trump should be impeached. In fact, Americans have abandoned any support for the left’s scheme.
How did Trump respond to Schiff’s sneaky scheme? He unleashed some of the harshest words against the impeachment pusher yet.
From Fox News:
President Trump tore into Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., in harsh terms on Tuesday, taking a moment from his overseas tour in London to call the House Intelligence Committee chairman a “maniac” and a “deranged human being” over his handling of the impeachment inquiry…
“I think Adam Schiff is a deranged human being. I think he grew up with a complex for lots of reasons that are obvious. I think he’s a very sick man, and he lies.”
Woah. President Trump destroyed Schiff, by calling him a “maniac” and a “deranged human being.”
In fact, Trump said he thinks Schiff is “a very sick man, and he lies.” Those are some strong words.
Trump doesn’t beat around the bush. When he confronts his enemies, he doesn’t pull any punches.
That’s good, because Democrats fight dirty. We’ve seen Schiff deny Republicans any consideration during his divisive and partisan impeachment inquiry.
Democrats always go low. So Trump is not afraid to hit them back—hard.
But Trump has gone even further in his criticism of Schiff than we’ve seen before. He utterly crushes the California Democrat.
I can’t imagine how Schiff will react to this rebuke. If he was smart, he’d consider it a wake up call.
But this is a man hellbent on impeaching the president, no matter what. So, something tells me he won’t realize how important Trump’s words about him are.
It looks like Democrats will push impeachment forward, even as Americans turn against it. Even if it costs the Democrats the House and the 2020 Election.
Serves them right.
SHARE if you stand with President Trump, not impeachment Schiff!
