After watching these law "professors" testify that everything Trump does is an impeachable crime and that hearsay is proven evidence, one question has been answered definitively.  Not "Should Trump be impeached?" but "Is it worth the tuition to send your kid to an Ivy League school?"  The answer is a definitive "NO."

---------------------

CNN recently ran a story claiming that California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes secretly met in Vienna last year with Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor Joe Biden got fired, seeking information on Biden and his son Hunter’s possible corruption.  I’m not sure why that would be illegal or even immoral, but put that aside.  Nunes immediately blasted the story as false and claimed he was preparing a defamation lawsuit against CNN, which most liberal pundits brushed off as empty bluster. 

Well, wrong again.  Tuesday, Nunes filed a $435 million lawsuit against CNN, the reporter of the story, Vicky Ward, and Chris Cuomo, who brought her on TV to peddle it.

https://www.westernjournal.com/devin-nunes-hits-cnn-435-million-defamation-lawsuit/

Nunes lays out evidence in his lawsuit that he never visited Austria at all in 2018; that during the times CNN claimed he was there, he was actually with a Congressional delegation visiting Libya and Malta; and that Shokin has stated that he not only never met with Nunes, until this story came out, he’d never even heard of him.  So all in all, a typical CNN report.

Nunes calls it a “demonstrably false” report based on a suspect source, Lev Parnas, who was reported to have made up false accusations to try to get Democrat prosecutors to cut him a deal on campaign finance charges, and it was shopped to at least five other media outlets before one was irresponsible enough to run it.

Nunes’ lawsuit also claims that he never talked to Parnas in December, 2018, as CNN alleged.  This sparked Democrats on the Intelligence Committee to release phone records showing four calls between Nunes’ and Parnas’ numbers, but the longest was just eight minutes (one was one minute, the other two only two seconds each), and they were over four months later, in April, 2019.  The most interesting aspect of that is how the Democrats obtained Nunes’ phone records and publicly released them.  Do I smell a second lawsuit in the offing?

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/12/schiff-obtained-phone-records-of-nunes-journalist-others.php

The lawsuit is a longshot since no matter how egregiously false CNN’s reporting is, they played CYA by phrasing the story as “Parnas says” to keep their fingerprints off it. It’s also notoriously hard for a public figure to sue for defamation, since you have to prove actual malice, and CNN has at least been smart enough not to change its motto from “This is CNN” to “The Actual Malice Network.” 

Still, even if CNN never has to pay out big money for its blatant bias and utter lack of journalistic standards, at least the suit will draw attention to how they conduct their business and just how biased and unreliable they are.  It will help insure that many millions of Americans know that if they watch a story on CNN, there’s a good chance that the only thing it will get right is that the letters “C-N-N” will be in the correct order.

 

-----------------------------------

A three-judge panel of a federal appeals court in New York sided with Congressional Democrats who are trying to obtain President Trump’s business banking records in their never-ending Captain Ahab-like quest to find something/anything to impeach him for.  I’m so tired of stories like this and judges like these that I no longer bother commenting on them at length.  I just point you to more info if you’re interested and wait for the final word from the Supreme Court to see if we still have a Constitution or not.

Chick-fil-A’s betrayal of its founder's Christian principles has deservedly gotten a lot of attention, including from me:

https://youtu.be/myV86pVmAfY

But one thing that’s been sadly overlooked is why in the world the Salvation Army has been unfairly slandered as some sort of anti-gay hate group. That seems to have just been accepted as conventional wisdom, while those who are pushing this libel ignore all the good that the Salvation Army does for the neediest among us, including members of the LGBTQ community.  The radical activists would selfishly cut off all that desperately-needed charity just because the Christian-based organization doesn’t adhere to their personal dogma 100%.

I’d write more about this, but Dennis Prager has already written a must-read column about it:

https://townhall.com/columnists/dennisprager/2019/12/03/the-left-hates-the-salvation-army-thats-all-you-need-to-know-about-the-left-n2557364

After reading it, you may be inspired by what you learn about the Salvation Army, or by the spirit of the season, or even out of anger at the injustice of it all, to let these critics know exactly what you think of them by helping the Salvation Army’s mission, including the Angel Tree program that helps provide a nice Christmas for poor children.  If so, you can learn more and donate here:

Amazon is under fire for allowing the sale on their site of Christmas ornaments depicting the Auschwitz concentration camp. The items have since been removed, but people keep finding similar items, such as bottle openers and beach towels.

https://www.westernjournal.com/amazon-fire-selling-auschwitz-concentration-camp-christmas-ornaments/

This is a more complicated issue than it seems.  Of course, anything that treats the Holocaust lightly is disgusting and repugnant, and has no place in decent society (I’ve been to Auschwitz multiple times, and I can’t imagine that anyone who’s been in that tragic and cursed place could ever take it lightly.) But there might be people who actually think this is a heartfelt tribute rather than incredibly offensive (I’ve seen some pretty tacky items with Jesus on them.)

The big problem, however, is that it’s nearly impossible to police such things because these days, countless items can be printed to order with an unlimited choice of stock photos, from suppliers scattered all over the world. Some might not even know what the Auschwitz photos are. Trying to remove the offensive ones is like trying to rid your house of cockroaches by stomping on them one at a time whenever you see one.  So I won’t slam Amazon for having them on their site (among their millions of products from so many sellers, they might not even have realized it.)  But now that they do know, I hope the public will alert Amazon whenever they see one pop up.  And we should all demand that they keep on stomping.

    There is no issue that we have always had a need for immigrants to help populate our country, after all we all originated from ancestors who immigrated to this new world. It is who we are, but for the most part even though we came from different cultures, backgrounds, & religions we have also united as Americans, excepting our laws, freedoms, and creating a great melting pot culture of strength & prosperity for those who work for it. But the times are a changing.

    I happen to believe one of this Country’s major problems is our very poor immigration & border protection policies, as well as the incentive to fix them. Since the 60’s our leaders from both parties have failed in the protection of its citizen’s homeland safety, security & property. They have foolishly placed the rights, safety, welfare, & freedoms of non-citizens over those of its own citizens. Yesterday on Tucker Carlton Tonight show on Fox News Channel, he did a three minute segment on the purposed 2019 modification of the existing “Farm Workforce Modernization Act”. This act has been around for some time now, but like most of our past laws it has been modified, abused, poorly enforced, & twisted to benefit illegal immigrants over not only our own current citizens but those immigrants who choose to come to our country legally. I suggest that you take three minutes of your time and watch this excerpt and then take his suggestion and ask your elected leaders to respond. It is an eye opener. Hope you follow through.

    Suing all these fake news outlets for all you can get out of them and easily proving they all did it with malice and forethought may slow some of them down. Low ratings, especially compared to Fox News, don't seem to severely impact the "Corrupt News Network" so maybe paying out millions of dollars in easily proven cases may hit them where it hurts the most. "All their reporters who write fake news stories should immediately be fired. They all were when I was still an active newspaper reporter.
    With today's announcement by Nancy Pelosi that the Demoncrats are going ahead with impeachment proceedings against President Trump, does anyone in their right mind (that eliminates most liberal Democrats) think that two thirds of the Senate is going to vote for impeachment. Instead, Senate witnesses will completely blow apart all the Dems impeachment arguments that what Trump allegedly did, doesn't even come close to a crime or impeachable offense. The Dems are still trying to rewrite the Constitution and that will backfire on them bigtime next November.

    I don't know how they all keep getting away with all of their lies. It should be stopped. This country is in such a sad state. I think President Trump should release all information they have on what is being done to kids, and just maybe a lot more would wake up. This money pit using kids is what this is all really about if you want to dig to the bottom. It is making many very wealthy and they don't want it stopped. God will punish them all severely someday. Meanwhile, we all have to deal with what they are doing. I can't even imagine what so many kids have went through for so many years. Centuries. The most innocent ones on the earth.

    I am with you on the colleges. If I had kids that wanted to attend one of these they would have to work and pay their own way, or be smart enough to get a full scholarship. I wouldn't be putting any money in these schools. I think they need cleaned out or shut down.

    Yesterday another waste of time and money, dignity at the hearing. What was learned yesterday was a shameless Farce conducted by a shameless person with revenge to satisfy his inner self's needs which he will not be able to do. Nadler you can set up 100 hearings and script it to make you look like a winner you will never achieve the feeling of being a winner by yourself or putting an army together to fight against common sense right and wrong you will always by the end of the day be a loser. You have a network of people with you Pelosi Schiff Swalwell you know the type to surround you thats not the only reasons you will be a loser HATE is what motivates you and the rest of your insane people friends don't send dumb people like yourself to head a hearing they are embarrassing you on National TV. Your group are making only the Communist happy and they think your action is feeble at best.

    After watching about 10 minutes of the Schiff Show; I told my sister that Devin Nunez better watch out because he talked mighty bad about Mr. Schiff. I told her that Schiff would be looking into any thing he could find to discredit him, Devin. And also, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Mark Meadows, Andy Biggs and Louie Gohmert. The democrats play dirty. These guys are at the top of their LIST.

    The Democrats believe they will be successful with a fake punt to get a TD and take the lead in the game. What will happen when the Republicans block the fake attempt and run the ball into the correct end zone and Republicans take the lead in the game.

  • Rick Locke

    12/04/2019 08:14 PM

    So - I wonder if the democrats would want President Trump to investigate Mike Pence if he said...

    And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor who was prosecuting the company (that my son works for). And they didn’t.

    So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said—I said, call him.

    Sad this whole scam set up per the Democrats to try to take down this President is beyond belief. Keep trying to say the Pres was trying to get a foreign Govt. to help him win. If that one little conversation was what this was about good luck? We are so tired and burned out on the SWAMP. Both sides including the Republicans who cannot stand up for this President.
    Chick Fil A my most favorite and who I defended for a long time when others tried to make them out as haters for so many and now they start an attack on Salvation Army who I support totally for so many and the Athletic group also? Now I am not going to buy weekly with Chick Fil A if ever per cannot understand how or why they are doing this?.

    I feel the President looked tired, weary today for the first time. I want to add here that if something doesn't happen in the report that comes out on the 9th "We The People" may rise up. We are getting fed up with everything. We are fed up with no one being sent to jail for the crimes they have committed. The travesty that just happened today is demoralizing and the twit that pounded on Barron should be tarred and feathered. We are being hit on all sides. I feel it is persecution. I just want to say to the First Family--we love you, we stand behind you.

    You may not agree with me, but I still think that if Trump supporters are a cult, then democrat supporters must be a coven. They've pulled out their cauldron and tried to use their black magic, but they are not doing something right because it keeps backfiring in their face. Of course God protects us from such evil and that is probably why they are having trouble. How long before their is a fight to see who is the leader. They do have some good choices.
