Nancy Pelosi just lost a vote for impeachment: California Democratic Rep. Katie Hill resigned Sunday after a series of revelations and photos related to the growing scandal over her alleged “throuple” sexual relationship with her husband and a female staffer.

While Pelosi praised Hill for her “powerful commitment to her community and a bright vision for the future“ (she certainly has a “progressive” vision of human relationships), she added, “We must ensure a climate of integrity and dignity in Congress, and in all workplaces.”

That’s the sad part: given what’s going on these days, Katie Hill might have been behaving with more integrity and dignity than most of the other House Democrats.

Former Michigan Rep. John Conyers, founder of the Congressional Black Caucus and longest-serving black member of Congress, died in his sleep of natural causes Sunday at age 90.  He was a longtime leader in the civil rights movement and was behind the bill to make the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday a national holiday.  A staunch liberal Democrat, Conyers was in Congress for over 50 years before resigning in 2017 amid sexual harassment allegations. 

Proving that when you set politics aside, people have surprising things in common: Conyers’ earliest ambition was to become a jazz musician, but his father forbid it.  Still, he continued to love jazz.  He even sponsored a bill to forgive a $1.6 million tax lien on bandleader Woody Herman’s estate, and he used to keep a standup bass in his office.

We extend our prayers and condolences to his family.

For NBA players, corporate executives and others keeping their lips buttoned and trying to silence any criticism of China’s human rights record, here’s a little taste of what you’re covering up.  This shows that the violent and volatile situation in Hong Kong is only the tip of the iceberg.

Meet the NCAA’s “female athlete of the week,” who, for some baffling reason that surely has nothing at all to do with basic facts of biology, has already posted a number of running times that are faster than even longstanding NCAA women’s records.

Since we’re all expected to treat obvious nonsensical delusions as unquestionable facts, it seems somehow appropriate that the most accurate news source now available is the satirical conservative humor site, the Babylon Bee. It makes up stories like this one, but they make a heck of a lot more sense than the “real” news stories like the one from the NCAA.

There’s more good news about the Trump economy: since he took office, median household income is up by $5003, and there are now an all-time-high 7 million unfilled jobs in the US, meaning employers have to do more to entice people to work for them.  But the anti-Trump media is still desperately trying to spin the idea that the economy really isn’t that good – and if it is, it’s just because Trump inherited a booming economy from Obama.

At the link, economic consultant and Trump adviser Stephen Moore dismantles that argument by listing the various ways in which economic indicators were actually going the wrong direction in Obama’s last year, and many expected a recession, but Trump turned it around by undoing as much of the Obama economic program as possible.

“No Safe Spaces,” Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla’s new documentary about the war on free speech on American college campuses, opened in Phoenix and made the second-highest box office gross ever for a documentary playing in only one theater.  It will soon begin showing in more locations, and I hope will score similar numbers and attract even wider distribution.  This is a movie that must be seen, to expose all the people who are trying to keep you from seeing anything they disagree with.

I can’t pretend to understand every baffling comment that falls out of Joe Biden’s mouth, especially some of his wild claims about his resume. But I swear you could hear jaws dropping all the way from South Carolina Saturday when Joe declared at a townhall, “I got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State.”  (HBCU means “Historically black college or university.”)  Joe actually graduated from the University of Delaware, which was founded in 1743, and not only isn’t “historically black,” it wasn’t even desegregated until a court order in 1950.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/26/joe-biden-falsely-claims-he-got-started-out-of-a-historically-black-university/

This all sounded weirdly familiar.  Luckily, I was able to find a clip on YouTube that the DNC might want to use in their campaign video if Biden gets the nomination.

    The court order to desegregate the University of Delaware may have been in 1950, but the first two black students did not start until 1952. I know, because I was a student then at the U of D. The black students were both music majors and knew more about music that any of the faculty I made friends with the young man. He joined a combo we had. He was accomplished in keyboard, brass, and woodwind. I played trumpet – he played it better. When colonel DiGiacomo in charge of the ROTC heard that I had made friends with the black student, he gave me a failing grade with no appeal. I then went to Drexel in Philadelphia where everyone was welcome.

    Sad that Biden does not realize his time has come and past. He is grasping for straws and how he and others try to position themselves with the blacks. You have to wonder why as a group one race does not realize how they have been used? To continue on that track and why? Corrupt Demos in many cities who used others for years and the cities have died? Now many in Georgia the blacks are working a lot all over because we have jobs that the illegal immigrants have not taken here. We had thousands working for low wages many have left. So I hope that many other races honestly pay attention who cares for you not uses you?

    Dear Governor,
    Today we hear all to often about climate change and how our existence is causing it. It amazes me how politicians can become meteorologist just by being in congress. They say, THEY need to control our cars, homes, what we eat, and cow farts. I truly believe they want to use this as a vehicle for socialism were government will control everything.
    Every time I hear them spewing this nonsense it makes me think of a King in Biblical times who thought he could control weather, which of course he could not. Do you recall what king it was and the story behind it, or maybe I'm confused with something else.
    I enjoy your show and look forward to it every Saturday night. It reminds me of when I was a Kid and we would gather around the tv and watch some variety shows.
    Keep up the good work and may God Bless you,

    Sincerely,
    Alan Baughman

    Joe lies so much he believes it. He learned from the best. Hilary ad Barry. NBA needs to think more about America and less about China. If they love it so much, move there and play all your games. We don't NEED you.! the faster time in the NCAA ,means a biological man was masquerading as a female. Thre isIS no such thing as trans. It doesn't happen. Until their psy and phy are fully changed to the new sex, they ARE their OLD sex. End of discussion. Does Mooch come to mind?I agree, Katie Hill has acted with more integrity than most other dems could even imagine. This needs to be purged from our society

    I've said it once I said it 10 times just let these loons keep talking the men want to win so they compete against women how bold is it? Just like a Liberal. Biden is so lost his followers can't support him much longer the left will lose this election but it is building for 2024 now teaching and the influence of socialism is deceiving the uneducated for the power to govern the United States in this decade. Offer people in debt free Healthcare for all, free useless Liberal education for all free Housing and your right Mike everyone will be an average Joe or Liz or Bernie or an average man that wants to compete as a women so Liberal in 10 or 15 years a lot of us in our 70's will be taking a dirt bath leaving behind what will be a way below average, way of life. We will be replaced by people not capable of living life as a capitalist. Just maybe AOC and her ideas will mean the end is within 10 to 12 years if one of her candidates wins the Presidential election something to remember while in the voting booth lot of uniformed potential voters out there. All looking for someone to take care of them if they inherit the parents assets the Socialists will take it. Liberals your setting yourself up to lose it all. MAGA KAG

    Joe Biden's comments clearly are in the realm of "the emperor is bare-arsed naked", but what can you expect, when the Washington Post identifiesAbu Bakr al Baghdadi as an :austere religious scholar'? For the record, al- Baghdadi was afiliated with a Madrassa - a place where young males learn to recite the Koran in Arabic - even if they have no idea what the words mean. Hardly a scholarly approach to religion, and I am unaware whether he was an instructor, or held some other position. While running the fore-runner of ISIS, "al Qaeda in the land of two rivers", al Baghdadi concentrated on extorting a tax of $9 US for every ton of raw oil produced (legally or illegally) in Anbar, Saladin and Nineveh provinces. As head of ISIS he personally ordered multiple beheadings and other gruesome killings, took hundreds of women as young as 14 as sex slaves for the ISIS fighters to use, and was generally a rotten soul. WAPO's attempt to rehabilitate al -Baghdadi, probably in hopes it would make Trump look bad, are indicative of the world of make-believe in which the left now exists.
