At the start of Tuesday, Democrats insisted that they wanted the Ukrainian whistleblower’s transcript released. When President Trump agreed to do that, Democrats moved the proverbial goalposts, this time insisting that they needed the whistleblower report, too. After mulling things for a few hours, FNC’s Ed Henry reported that the Trump administration had agreed to release the whistleblower complaint, too. Henry also reported that “a senior White House official” told him that the whistleblower has an anti-Trump bias.

Next, Democrats, mostly Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) insisted that the whistleblower testify this week in front of the House Intelligence Committee. The White House agreed to that, too. Suffice it to say that President Trump didn’t act like a guilty man.

The point is that Democrats kept moving the goalposts in the hopes of making President Trump look guilty while President Trump kept agreeing to their demands. If that isn’t enough for the Democrats, consider this: this is the week of the UN General Assembly. Ukraine’s president isn’t just attending the UNGA. He’s scheduled to have a bilateral meeting with President Trump. If that isn’t bad enough for the Democrats, President Trump and President Zelensky are scheduled to host a press conference that day, too.

Suffice it to say that this was the wrong week for the Democrats to accuse President Trump of holding Ukraine’s President hostage with military aid. With all that’s gone wrong for the Democrats, it kinda reminds me of this famous scene:

I guess this would’ve been a good week for Nancy Pelosi to resign as Speaker. Who needs to deal with this bunch of idiots?

This is turning into being a fantastic week for President Trump and Tom Emmer. Emmer issued this statement as Chairman of the NRCC:

For the past three years, the socialist Democrats have been obsessed with impeaching the president and backfilling in the reason after the fact. They have become so radicalized by their hatred of President Trump that they are willing to plunge the nation into a constitutional crisis based on secondhand gossip. Democrats have lost their sanity and any remaining credibility with the American people.

Make no mistake about it: backing impeachment will cost the Democrats their majority in 2020.

Chairman Emmer is right. Impeachment will cost Democrats their chairman’s gavels.

What’s worst for Democrats is that they’re still about 50 votes short of being able to pass articles of impeachment.

I wish I could say that I’m surprised to find out that Angie Craig and Dean Philips aren’t moderates. I’d be lying if I said that they were. Simply put, they aren’t moderate. According to this article, we now have proof that Craig and Phillips aren’t moderates. We know that because they’re now on board with impeaching President Trump for the flimsiest of reasons:

Minnesota Democratic Reps. Dean Phillips and Angie Craig have been moderates on impeachment, but an accusation that President Donald Trump asked Ukraine to investigate a political rival is changing that. Trump is accused of pressing Ukraine’s leader to help investigate political rival Joe Biden at the same time the White House was withholding $250 million in aid to that country. Trump says he’s done nothing wrong.

Phillips says it appears Trump “invited foreign interference in our democracy” in a way “that is corrupt at best (and) treasonous at worst.” He says if the accusation is proven, “we must pursue articles of impeachment.” Craig went farther in her statement on Monday, saying it is time to open impeachment proceedings now.

Nobody has seen the transcript of the call. Further, Phillips should know better than to say that President Trump’s alleged statements can’t amount to treason because it’s only possible to commit treason when we’re at war. Further, Phillips flipped based on a rumor. If he doesn’t know what’s in the document, what’s the justification for flipping? I suspect that Phillips wanted to support impeachment but he had to act like a moderate until the next faux indignation happened.

Here’s what Phillips is quoted as saying:

“Our Constitution transcends any person, politician, or political party, and I call on the House Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees to use every legal mechanism possible to obtain all relevant evidence.

If the reports are corroborated, we must pursue articles of impeachment and report them to the full House of Representatives for immediate consideration.”Think about what Phillips just said. He admitted in plain language that he doesn’t have evidence that President Trump has done anything wrong. Let’s contrast that with the Nixon impeachment. In Nixon’s case, there was a crime that’d been committed. There was something solid for Congress to investigate. In this case, the Democrats’ faux investigation is actually a fishing trip. They’ve heard a rumor and their hatred of President Trump pushes the Democrats’ buttons.

Instead of doing real work, like fixing immigration or keeping the Trump economy strong, Democrats have invested most of their time on investigation after investigation after investigation. That’s why I’ve nicknamed these Democrats the Do-Nothing Democrats.

Craig didn’t even do that. She said “It is clear that the sitting president of the United States placed his own personal interests above the national security of the United States. When there is an abuse of power of this magnitude, it is our responsibility to stand up for what is right. This is why I am calling to open impeachment proceedings — immediately, fairly and impartially.”

First, I demand to know what President Trump did that constitutes abuse of power. In his explanation, President Trump said that he demanded that the Ukrainian president clean up the corruption so that America’s money wasn’t stolen by international grifters (my words, no President Trump’s.). That doesn’t rise to the level of impeachment. It isn’t close.

Constitutional definition of impeachment

They should especially highlight Article II, Section 4, which says “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Here’s hoping that this duo is booted out after a single term. This time, I hope We The People throw them out via the vote, not by having a Dayton-like temper tantrum..

Anyone that thinks that Big Tech plays fair is utterly delusional. To say that Twitter’s actions feel like they’re straight from the Twilight Zone is understatement. Here’s what happened, according to the article:

The move from the NRSC comes after McConnell’s campaign account was locked Wednesday for posting a video of protesters outside his home that included violent threats against the Kentucky Republican. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed the account was temporarily locked for violating the company’s “violent threats policy.” McConnell’s campaign manager, Kevin Golden, said the campaign unsuccessfully appealed the decision and accused Twitter of hypocrisy.

Think about that a second. Twitter suspended Sen. McConnell’s account because they highlighted a video showing violent protesters protesting outside Sen. McConnell’s home.

“Twitter’s hostile actions toward Leader McConnell’s campaign are outrageous, and we will not tolerate it,” said Jesse Hunt, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “The NRSC will suspend all spending with Twitter until further notice. We will not spend our resources on a platform that silences conservatives.”

The NRCC has announced that it’s suspending advertising its spending via Twitter, too. If Democrats were principled, they’d suspend their advertising on Twitter, too. An attack against Republican campaigns is an attack against the entire election system. Unfortunately, Democrats aren’t principled. What Twitter is doing is as despicable as what Russia did. Putting a thumb on the scale of our election system is beyond reprehensible.


Democrats repeatedly told us that during the Russia Hoax ‘Investigation’. Now that Big Tech is hurting Republicans rather than Russians hurting Democrats, election security doesn’t seem to be a priority to Democrats. Isn’t that amazing? Who would’ve thought that?

I don’t know what the right solution is to Big Tech but this can’t be ignored anymore. Testimony by Big Tech executives saying that they don’t tip the scales in the Democrats favor should be treated as lying to Congress. That’s because that’s what it is.
