The President’s attorney sent Rep. Jerrold Nadler an official response to his invitation to participate in Monday’s impeachment hearings, a.k.a., the official distraction from the IG report into the Russian collusion hoax.
Details and the full response are at this link:
But to sum it up briefly:
No. Now quit wasting America’s time with this charade and start doing some real work.
We learned this week that being an Ivy League law professor doesn’t necessary mean you know the difference between unfounded hearsay and actual evidence. But another thing we learned is that these esteemed legal minds must have also snored through history class, because they claimed that President Trump’s alleged transgressions are “worse than the misconduct of any prior President.”
Seriously? Mean tweets and wanting to make sure taxpayer dollars aren’t going into the pockets of corrupt kleptocrats are worse than putting Japanese-Americans into internment camps or resegregating the Civil Service, the way two of the Democrats’ most revered Presidents did?
At the link, David Harsanyi offers these historically-challenged professors a refresher course on what real Presidential abuse of power looked like (by they way, I assume they also slept through the entire Obama Administration.)
PS – Note that Harsanyi isn’t a Trump fan. He writes of “Trump’s blundering attempt to launch a self-serving Ukrainian investigation into his rival’s shady son” as if Trump’s selfish motivations were proven fact rather than the latest fevered charge from Adam Schiff, backed up by nothing but hearsay and denied by everyone with firsthand knowledge. But Harsanyi argues, “This isn’t a case in favor of Trump; it’s a plea for people to resist saying insane things because they dislike this President.”
I think he misses the point: if they could resist saying insane things about Trump, it would mean they weren’t insane.
In case there was still any doubt about what the Washington Post is, their media columnist Margaret Sullivan made it abundantly clear by arguing that it’s the duty of “journalists” to reach “the undecided” and persuade them that Trump should be impeached. Apparently, watching the pathetic parade of thirdhand hearsay and disgruntled bureaucrats that the Democrats have presented as “evidence” isn’t persuading us unwashed rubes to think the proper way. She suggests that media outlets (rather than, say, reporting the news objectively) take a movie trailer approach to impeachment coverage, to try to entice us into buying their spin. It might work: a snappy trailer has been known to bamboozle people into buying tickets to some real turkeys.
But since she brought up the subject of movie trailers, here’s a place where you can watch one for a film I have seen and can vouch for as a must-see.
It’s called “No Safe Spaces,” and it’s Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla’s documentary about the war on free speech, particularly on America’s college campuses, the kind that are turning out brainwashed leftist propagandists who go to work for WaPo. The film broke records in its earliest limited showings, but it’s now opening nationwide.
At that link, you can learn more and find a theater where it’s showing near you. I encourage you to go see it ASAP, both because of the shocking things you will see in it, and because a big opening weekend box office for it will send a lot of leftist thought police scurrying to their safe spaces to soothe themselves with their Play-Doh and Che Guevara coloring books.
To Hillary Clinton, everything that stood between her and the White House, other than her own personality, was part of a vast Russian conspiracy. Her ability to spot Russians behind every rock continues to this day, with her recent claim that Iraq War veteran Tulsi Gabbard is a “Russian asset” who might run as a third party candidate, something Gabbard has never voiced any intention of doing (of course, that would help Trump – whom Hillary also claims is a “Russian asset” – to win.)
And now, Hillary has identified yet another Boris Badenov in disguise: Bernie Sanders! Hillary claims the Russians helped boost Bernie in 2016, which hurt her chances, so Bernie is a Russian asset.
Can you imagine anyone suggesting that Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist who went on his honeymoon to the Soviet Union, is a “Russian asset”?
Oh, wait a minute…You know, this might be an example of that old saying: “Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.”
A video has gone viral, showing an illegal immigrant climbing up and over a section of the new border security wall. It’s being shared all over social media by liberals as proof that border walls provide no real security.
What the 38 seconds of video doesn’t show is that the high wall slowed down the border crosser, and combined with the improved lighting, detection monitoring and patrol roads that came with it, border agents were able to apprehend him within minutes.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to solicit apologies from those who criticized her for driving away 25,000 new Amazon.com jobs from her district, after Amazon announced plans to create 1500 jobs in New York, but not in her district. I don’t think she understands how Twitter works any better than she understands economics or math.
An actor whose face and voice you know from countless movie and TV roles, Ron Liebman, died Friday at 82. He first came to national attention in 1956 on the soap opera, “The Edge of Night.” His career stretched on for the next six decades, with a Tony Award on Broadway for “Angels in America,” and roles in movies such as “Norma Rae” and many TV shows. If you still can’t place him, I’ll bet this does it: he was Rachel’s irascible father, Dr. Green, on “Friends.”
Our sympathies to his wife, actress Jessica Walter, and his family.
