Good for the Supreme Court for telling Jerry Nadler to pound sand over their motion to get Mueller grand jury testimony declassified. The Supreme Court hasn’t issued a final ruling on the lawsuit but that’s likely heading the Democrats’ direction.

The Supreme Court temporarily denied a motion Wednesday from House Democrats to obtain grand-jury testimony and other documents from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation as they conduct what they’ve referred to as an “ongoing presidential impeachment investigation” into President Trump.

House Democrats are obsessed with finding something that will help them throw President Trump out of office. The Democrats’ hatred of President Trump is so strong that they’ve said no to multiple proposals that would’ve helped Hispanics and other blue collar workers. Impeachment isn’t going anywhere. The Democrats know this.

Rather than putting together ideas that appeal to all Americans, Pelosi’s Democrats have voted for things that excite their base. Despite that appeal to their base, Democrats trail badly in the enthusiasm gap, both in terms of the presidential election and in House races.

There’s a reason why grand jury testimony is kept confidential. If testimony taken during a grand jury isn’t enough to indict a person, that information shouldn’t be used as a political weapon. Democrats have seen tons of information. It didn’t lead to a conviction of President Trump. He’s now exonerated. Getting a second or third or fourth bite at the apple won’t convict President Trump. No amount of wishing will change that. It’s time that Democrats accept that.

Let’s hope that this is just part of a bigger movement. House Democrats want to investigate a law-abiding president. Whether you agree with his policies or not, there’s no denying that President Trump has obeyed each court order. That can’t be said about his predecessor. Gun-grabbing Democrats want to take away the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Each time they threaten a gun grab, the rank-and-file NRA strengthens and gets more motivated.

By comparison, the previous (Democrat) administration unmasked law-abiding citizens that they thought were conspiring with Russians. They didn’t unmask these law-abiding citizens because they had proof of illegal activity. They unmasked these citizens because they’d advised a candidate, aka Donald Trump. Time after time after time, these Democrats have let their hatred of Trump get the better of them. This isn’t normal. It’s proof of derangement.

People have started protesting against Democrat governors like Tim Walz, Gretchen Whitmer, J.B. Pritzker and Tom Wolf. The protests have focused on these governors’ illogical, unconstitutional and overreaching executive orders. If they keep this up, they’ll increase President Trump’s odds for re-election.

Tuesday night, Mike Garcia was predicted to lose the special election in California’s 25th District. Mollie Hemingway’s article tells a different story. Mike Garcia didn’t just win the special election. He won by a lopsided margin.

This isn’t good news for Democrats. First, let’s stipulate that special elections often have weird turnouts. With that stipulated, though, let’s get to the important part. Kevin McCarthy is smiling because, as he told Sean Hannity tonight, there are 42 seats that are rated better than the seat Garcia just re-flipped. Republicans only need to flip 17 more seats in 2020 to retake the majority.

Earlier this week, I wrote that the massive Trump army didn’t disappear during the pandemic. Let’s be clear about something. Leader McCarthy spoke about the robust ballot-harvesting operation that happened in this special election — on the GOP side. If that muscle shows up in November, which I predict is likely, then it’s virtually certain that Queen Pelosi will have to relinquish her Speaker’s Gavel for a second time. This time, it will have been after just a single term as Speaker.

There’s another thing we should be clear about. If we don’t make retaking the House a high priority, then tyrants will have chairmen’s gavels. Think about how devastating it’d be with Nadler, Schiff, AOC and Maxine Waters with gavels. But I digress. Here’s what Ms. Hemingway wrote:

The case made by Geoffrey Skelley and Nathaniel Rakich was simple: Supposedly Americans strongly prefer Biden and Democrats over Trump and Republicans, and they are particularly upset with Trump and other Republicans’ attempts to reopen the country as the global Coronavirus pandemic rages.

“On Tuesday, we’ll get a taste of whether Democrats’ electoral advantage on paper will hold up in practice, as California and Wisconsin hold special elections for two vacant congressional seats. The main event is in the California 25th Congressional District, a bellwether seat in the north Los Angeles suburbs, where both parties see a chance to add to their ranks in the House. But if Democrats are also competitive in the quickly reddening, rural Wisconsin 7th Congressional District, it could signal another blue wave in the fall,” they argued.

That “blue wave” crashed in Wisconsin:

Trump won Wisconsin by less than a point, but carried the district by 20 points, in 2016. Tiffany’s win over Zunker was about 6 points less than that, based on preliminary results. Tiffany rejected Democrats’ argument that the smaller margin was a sign that Trump’s support was waning. “Any time you lose by 14 points, I don’t think that’s a moral victory,” Tiffany said. “This is a decisive victory here.”

I’d totally agree with both points. I think Democrats are misreading things. While President Trump is working with any governor that asks for the federal government’s help, Queen Pelosi keeps delaying bills that’ve put small businesses out of businesses. Democrats apparently haven’t noticed that people don’t like the draconian measures put in place by tyrants like Illinois’s J.B. Pritzker, Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer and Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf. If that trio of Democrat governors were up for re-election this fall, I’d bet heavily that, at minimum, 2 of the 3 would lose.

This is funny:


To steal a line from the original A-Team, “God, I love it when a plan comes together.”

Anyone who’s studied Nancy Pelosi, henceforth nicknamed Queen Pelosi on LFR, knows that she’s into writing major bills in her office. Further, she’s a control freak, seeking only the input of her top lieutenants rather than listening to the voice of the people. Listening to the voice of the people would require holding committee hearings, which Queen Pelosi isn’t a fan of except when they’re impeachment hearings (see Schiff, Adam) or to rubberstamp articles of impeachment, (see Nadler, Jerry). Democrats, BTW, haven’t uttered a word fighting Queen Pelosi. Why should they? These Democrats agree with Queen Pelosi.

When Obamacare was written, the House bill was run through multiple committees, though none of the bills that were marked up in committees were the final bill. That final House bill was written in Pelosi’s office. That led to this infamous statement from Queen Pelosi:

If Pelosi’s actions guided her grade on the Declaration of Independence, she’d get an F- or worse. Early in the Declaration, it emphatically states this:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Queen Pelosi doesn’t care about getting “their just powers from the consent of the governed.” Queen Pelosi just cares about shoving legislation down the minority party’s throats. The House Democrat Caucus is beholden to this tyrant because Queen Pelosi is a prolific fundraiser. Without her, 75% of them wouldn’t be in DC.

That’s why I’m advocating for a modern-day revolution, one not fought with muskets but with ballots. If Queen Pelosi isn’t interested in representing We the People, then it’s time to strip her of the thing she thirsts for most — her Speaker’s gavel. That’s the only way to restore the House of Representatives to representing We The People.

Queen Pelosi doesn’t work with House Minority Leader McCarthy. According to McCarthy, she informs him of what she’s about to do. That isn’t showing interest in what We The People want. That’s proof that Queen Pelosi is interested in her ideological checklist. It’s time for her to get terminated from the Speaker’s position.

This afternoon, Tyler Kistner won the endorsement of Second District Republicans in Minnesota’s Second District. Tyler Kistner said:

I am truly honored to have earned the endorsement of the delegates and the Republican Party in the Second District. I’d like to thank Regina Barr and Erika Cashin for running a spirited campaign.

Now, our party must unite together to beat Angie Craig in November. These are not ordinary times, and the stakes have never been higher. Our country is facing an unprecedented enemy in the form of this pandemic and a record number of families and small businesses are hurting. I will fight for the people of Minnesota and work with President Trump to get our country and our economy back on track. I will stand up to the deceptive practices of China. I will be a steadfast leader in the fight to rein in our debt and deficit and get our fiscal house in order.

Angie Craig has already broken her promises to the Second District by taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from special interest groups in Washington DC. She has become nothing more than a puppet to Nancy Pelosi, Ilhan Omar, and the progressives that run her party.

I served Minnesota and our country as a Marine, now, I ask for the honor of going to Washington to serve you again.

Minnesota’s Second District is one of the races targeted by the NRCC. We can’t afford to let ‘Let them eat expensive ice cream’ Nancy Pelosi serve another term as Speaker. We can’t afford to have Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff lead one faux impeachment investigation after another while totally ignoring the infiltration of the Wuhan coronavirus with nary a bit of interest from Schiff, Pelosi or Nadler.

Pelosi negotiated while literally letting small businesses die while tens of millions of people filed for unemployment. Schiff impeached a president based solely on allegations. I don’t want any citizen tried solely based on allegations. While Pelosi negotiated and literally tens of millions of people lost their jobs, Angie Craig didn’t speak out. When Schiff impeached President Trump based solely on hearsay testimony, Angie Craig voted to impeach President Trump.

It’s clear that Craig’s talk about small businesses is just talk. It’s clear that Craig’s talk about civil rights is selective at best. It’s time to throw her out this November.

Friday night, President Trump fired Michael Atkinson, the man who talked with the faux whistleblower who lied about President Trump’s call with Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the Intelligence Committee’s vice chairman’ said “In the midst of a national emergency, it is unconscionable that the president is once again attempting to undermine the integrity of the intelligence community by firing yet another … intelligence official simply for doing his job. The work of the intelligence community has never been about loyalty to a single individual; it’s about keeping us all safe from those who wish to do our country harm. We should all be deeply disturbed by ongoing attempts to politicize the nation’s intelligence agencies.”

Shame on Sen. Warner for saying that Atkinson did his job. He didn’t do anything of the sort. I wrote here about the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act, aka the ICWPA. Specifically, I quoted the things required to submit a complaint:

In order to submit an ICWPA complaint the following elements must be met:

Eligible Originator: Only applies to employees (civilian, military or contractor) assigned to the four DoD intelligence agencies (DIA, NSA, NRO, and NGA). Does not apply to activities of the military services, combatant commands, or Office of Secretary of Defense.

Notice that the President isn’t covered by the ICWPA. The military, with the exception of the DIA, isn’t covered by the ICWPA, either. It only “applies to employees (civilian, military or contractor) assigned to the four DoD intelligence agencies (DIA, NSA, NRO, and NGA).”

Based on the written law, it’s fair to say that Mr. Atkinson stepped far outside the boundaries of the ICWPA. Apparently, Mr. Atkinson helped a snitch get the president impeached based on hearsay testimony or less. I’d love hearing Sen. Warner explain how he thinks that’s an example of Atkinson “doing his job.” That’ll require some linguistic gymnastics.

Naturally, Chairman Adam Schiff immediately responded to the news:


As I highlighted earlier in this post, the alleged snitch didn’t “expose presidential wrongdoing.” The transcript proves that the allegations against President Trump were BS. When an IG betrays the trust of our Commander-in-Chief while the C-in-C is acting within his authority, that IG should get terminated immediately. This is the entire transcript. I triple-dog dare Sen. Warner or Chairman Schiff to show me anything in that transcript violates the law. I’d bet the proverbial ranch that neither of these gentlemen could highlight a law that was broken.

I don’t doubt that these men think that what President Trump did was wrong. That’s irrelevant, though, because impeachment is reserved for “Treason, Briber or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” The president can only be removed from office if 67 senators vote to convict him. Madison, Hamilton and Jefferson established a high bar to assure that a handful of partisans wouldn’t attempt to railroad an unpopular president from office. That’s what this snitch, Chairman Schiff and Sen. Warner tried doing, though. That’s the definition of disgusting.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took time in this article to compliment Sen. Tom Cotton, (R-AR), for spotting the first case of COVID-19. Later in the article, they highlight a tweet by John Ashbrook, who is described as a “former McConnell aide.” Specifically, the article said “Former McConnell aide John Ashbrook also pointed this out Tuesday, stating that the pandemic is believed to have hit the United States the same day that House Democrats marched articles of impeachment to the Senate after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held off on moving forward on impeachment for weeks.”

Whether Democrats like it or not, the truth is that the Democrats’ impeachment march happened on January 15,2020, the same date as the CDC’s confirmation of the first case of COVID-19 in the US. The truth is that Democrats were focused on impeaching President Trump from the middle of November, 2019, through early February, 2020. That’s harsh but that’s reality.

That isn’t the harshest news, though. I wrote in this post that the House Homeland Security Committee held 3 hearings on the COVID-19 virus. The first hearing was on March 4, 2020. The third hearing was held on March 11. That means the committee of jurisdiction waited almost 2 months to hold a hearing on a deadly virus. It isn’t entirely the committee chairman’s fault.

The House and Senate stop in their tracks while trying a president for impeachment. That means we can only blame Chairman Thompson for wasting the second month to hold a hearing. Imagine what could’ve happened if we had serious people running the House and Senate. First, we wouldn’t have seen a tweet like this:

It’s time to return serious people to chairing committees. We can’t handle the partisan political hacks chairing House committees any longer. By comparison, Sen. Tom Cotton spoke out about the COVID-19 virus early:

On January 22, one day before the Chinese government began a quarantine of Wuhan to contain the spread of the virus, the Arkansas senator sent a letter to Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar encouraging the Trump administration to consider banning travel between China and the United States and warning that the Communist regime could be covering up how dangerous the disease really was. That same day, he amplified his warnings on Twitter and in an appearance on the radio program of Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade.

Not every politician was distracted. Sen. Cotton paid attention. Meanwhile, idiots like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler battled to see who got more time in front of the camera.

It’s time to run both of these idiots out of Congress. They’re a total waste of time.

Ed Morrissey’s post about Nancy Pelosi’s statements on CNN’s State of the Union is, as always, spot on. Predictably, Pelosi’s statements ignore reality. She’s totally oblivious to reality with regard to the coronavirus. I wrote in this post about what House Democrats didn’t do when the virus was first taking off. Specifically, I focused on the House Homeland Security Committee’s activities.

According to their website, House Democrats held 12 hearings after President Trump’s two-way travel ban with China. Of those 12 hearings, 4 were on the subject of the coronavirus. If Ms. Pelosi wants to talk about people fiddling and people dying, she should look into the mirror.

House Democrats’ first hearing on the coronavirus was on March 4, over a month after President Trump’s China travel ban. Why didn’t House Democrats pay attention sooner? In my opinion, it’s because they were focused on impeaching President Trump. Let the record show that the Democrats’ impeachment didn’t include an article that mentioned a crime, much less a high crime, which is constitutionally required for impeachment.

All that Democrats have to offer is panic itself. Ed opened his post with this paragraph:

Say what? Isn’t this the same woman who held up the coronavirus relief package for days to get Green New Deal funding as part of the rescue? Nancy Pelosi told Jake Tapper yesterday morning that Donald Trump still isn’t taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously enough, just a few days after Pelosi spent a week back home rather than in Washington dealing with the crisis, only to fly back and derail Senate negotiations for several days in providing a response to it.

It’s impossible to take Pelosi seriously when she’s vacationing in her million-dollar San Francisco mansion for a week while bipartisan Senate working groups are putting things together. At the last minute, Pelosi flew back from vacation and nixed the entire deal, insisting that major parts of AOC’s Green New Deal be included in the emergency coronavirus relief bill. Pelosi also wanted additional protections for sanctuary cities, same-day voting registration and millions of dollars for the arts and the Kennedy Center.

Pelosi fiddled while first responders needed PPEs, ventilators and other life-saving medical equipment. What’s required is a voice of sanity. That voice belongs to Dr. Drew Pinsky. Check it out, then implement his wisdom into your life:

Last week, Nancy Pelosi got caught lying. If you’re saying to yourself ‘I didn’t see anything in the NY Times or on CNN, ask yourself when the last time was that you saw a negative headline against a Democrat legislator. Notice that I didn’t say a Democrat. The NY Times and CNN run negative headlines all the time against Democrat candidates. That’s entirely different. But I digress.

Pelosi got caught trying to put Democrat policy initiatives into the coronavirus bill. This happened while doctors and other medical personnel didn’t have enough ventilators or personal protective equipment, aka PPE. This is how Pelosi defended herself:

It wasn’t pretty. Johnny ‘Joey’ Jones laid it out perfectly. Nothing in the article above helps Pelosi, either:

“His denial at the beginning was deadly, his delaying of getting equipment … to where it is needed is deadly, and now the best thing would be to do is to prevent more loss of life, rather than open things up so that, because we just don’t know,” Pelosi said during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Pelosi held up the relief bill and she’s got the chutzpah to insist that President Trump’s delays, whatever they are, have killed people? She can’t be serious. Pelosi insisted on changes to election laws as part of this emergency bill. We have federal elections, not national elections. The elections are for federal positions but they’re administered by state and local governments.

President Clinton frequently said that states were the laboratories of democracy. He’s right about that. Apparently, Pelosi isn’t interested in perfecting democracies. She simply wants total control. This November, thoughtful people should throw her out of her position of prominence. Kevin McCarthy is the right fit for Speaker because he actually listens to his constituents. The last time Pelosi listened to her constituents happened when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

Pelosi’s agenda isn’t America’s agenda. In 2009-10, Pelosi’s agenda included 2 things: first, passing the ACA, next, passing Cap & Trade. Democrats lost 63 seats in the House that year. This time as Speaker-in-name-only, Pelosi’s agenda has been impeachment and resistance. The odds of her holding the Speaker’s Gavel are between slim and none and slim just left town. Rather than pushing a positive agenda that the American people approve of, Pelosi has pushed one anti-Trump initiative after another.

She hasn’t done a thing to fix the health care system. She’s pushed impeachment while the coronavirus pandemic broke out. Then, she tried playing chicken with Mitch McConnell while the COVID-19 pandemic spread. After the Senate acquitted President Trump, Pelosi, AOC and the rest of the Democrats did nothing to prepare us for COVID-19. The first hearing Democrats held on the COVID-19 virus was on March 4 in the Homeland Security Committee:

That’s over a month after President Trump issued his travel ban with China. Pelosi’s Democrats have been asleep at the switch when it comes to protecting us from pandemics. That’s because they’ve focused their time on frivolous impeachment hearings. PS- The House Homeland Security Committee has held 3 hearings on COVID-19. The last hearing was March 11. That’s pathetic.

While people die in New York, California, Illinois and Louisiana, Homeland Security did virtually nothing. I won’t say that the blood of the victims is on their hands. That’s clearly on China’s hands. What I’m totally confident in saying, though, is that House Democrats didn’t pay attention to COVID-19. They spent their attention on impeaching President Trump without mentioning a crime.

If that isn’t the definition of do-nothing Democrats, then it doesn’t exist.

Ever since Impeachment Committee Chairman Adam Schiff impeached President Trump without citing a crime, we’ve known that it was just a matter of time until some lame-brained leftist Democrat would redeploy the Schiff Standard. That day arrived. The sad part is that it didn’t take long to arrive:

Professor Chris Edelson, assistant professor of government at American University, has penned an opinion column calling for President Trump to resign or be impeachment for his handling of the coronavirus crisis. It is just the latest in a long line of such impeachment theories that reflect a fundamental misconception of the function and standard for the removal of an American President.

Since Chairman Schiff has essentially instituted a whatever-a-majority-of-Congress-says-is-impeachable impeachment standard, it isn’t surprising that people are making up new impeachment charges. As Democrats become more desperate, we should expect these types of frivolous charges to come more often against Republicans. Democrats have shown that they’re a vindictive lot of sore losers. This treachery will become the new normal for Democrats.

If this becomes the Democrats’ new normal, then I pray that voters punish Democrats for being sore losers. Shame on them for not accepting the outcome of legitimate elections. You lost in 2016. A 4-year hissy fit just proves that you’re whiny little children. Whiny little children aren’t fit to govern. That privilege is reserved for adults.

Schiff’s problem isn’t that he’s a whiny little child. Schiff’s problem, along with every other Democrat that voted to impeach or convict President Trump, is that he’s a dishonest SOB. Trusting him is as stupid as trusting this professor. Then again, trusting any Democrat that voted to impeach or convict President Trump on the basis of hearsay testimony is stupid.

Schiff is an annoying SOB. He’s proven that by this:

President Trump said he is seriously considering a pardon for former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. “So now it is reported that, after destroying his life & the life of his wonderful family (and many others also), the FBI, working in conjunction with the Justice Department, has ‘lost’ the records of General Michael Flynn. How convenient. I am strongly considering a Full Pardon!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.


House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff quickly tweeted that Trump should keep his “focus on the current crisis” surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, adding that “the delay in testing and your failure to lead are already costing us dearly.” “Your attacks on the independence of the justice system and rewarding of cronies who lied for you can wait,” the California Democrat said. “Incompetence kills.”

My message to Professor Edelson is the same as my message to Chairman Schiff. Shut up and go away. Your warped thinking is hurting civilized society. Please stop wasting my time with your stupidity.

Democrats used to attribute acts of violence to President Trump’s rhetoric or conservative talk radio. When Gabby Giffords was shot, Sarah Palin was blamed. When the facts were known, we found out that the gunman was a deranged leftist with a history of mental illness. It had nothing to do with the Democrats’ conventional wisdom.

This past week, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer joined a group of leftists on the steps of the US Supreme Court to specifically threaten Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. In his threatening diatribe, Sen. Schumer said “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” That caused Chief Justice John Roberts to publicly rebuke Sen. Schumer for threatening his justices.

In this post, I highlighted Maxine Waters exhortation to violence against members of President Trump’s staff and cabinet:

Now that we’ve established that Democrats are the instigators of violence, let’s highlight yesterday’s threat against Elise Stefanik:

Stefanik wrote Saturday on Twitter that when she returned to her car earlier in the day after grocery shopping with her husband, she found what she described as a “vile anonymous note.”

“Rot in Hell FASCIST PIG,” the hand-scrawled note said.

Later, she took to Twitter:


This article highlights other acts of violence against Republicans:

Other incidents this year involving incivility – or even violence – against conservatives and Republicans have included a vehicle smashing a GOP voter-registration table in Florida, an alleged assault of a 15-year-old Trump supporter in New Hampshire, the smashing of a College Republicans information table in California, an individual’s threat, caught on video, to “slash Republicans’ throats” in Arizona, an alleged assault of a retired police officer wearing a Trump-style hat and shirt in Tennessee and a suspect being sentenced to 90 days in jail for slapping and spitting on a Trump supporter in Florida.

It used to be said that Democrats were the evil party and that Republicans were the stupid party. These days, thanks to Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other domestic terrorist organizations, Democrats are the violent party.

Democrats haven’t had a worthwhile new thought in years. It’s time they started thinking logically again rather than lashing out with violence. Leaders like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff need to be thrown to the curb in the next leadership elections. They aren’t inspiring leaders. They’re backstabbing lowlifes who never will be leaders.

It would be a mistake for voters to give Democrats the White House or a majority in the House or Senate. Democrats first need to fix their anger management problems before they’re worthy of leadership positions.
