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.”

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.

Mollie Hemingway’s article highlights the threat posed by Chuck Schumer’s statement poses to the justices. First, it’s worth noting something that former US Attorney Guy Lewis told Harris Faulkner shortly after Schumer’s threats. Lewis said that US marshals were likely called into action minutes after Schumer’s threats. When Ms. Faulkner asked if this was speculation or whether it was fact, Lewis replied that that’s the procedure that’s been used in the past. He said that a dozen US marshals would be detailed to the justices, their wives and their kids for the next 6 months to protect them from violence.

Sol Wisenberg, a former assistant independent counsel on the Whitewater investigation, insists that Schumer’s statements are protected by the First Amendment. I disagree. What Schumer did was the equivalent of yelling fire in a crowded theater. This is what Schumer said, along with a discussion on Schumer’s threat:

With the things that Antifa and other thugs have done, with the exhortations made by Maxine Waters, with the Bernie Bro who shot Steve Scalise, why wouldn’t Sen. Schumer’s statement be treated as a threat?

These statements can’t be taken as idle chatter. That might’ve been fine 20 years ago but that isn’t the world we’re living in today. Sen. Schumer’s statement was a threat and he knows it. Since Ted Kennedy’s hate-filled diatribe against Judge Robert Bork, Democrats have thoroughly politicized the judicial confirmation process.

The justices that were nominated by Republican presidents got confirmed since then but they’ve been scrutinized unlike any justices in history. Democrats have made these confirmation hearings like Armageddon. Democrats understand that their ideas aren’t popular enough to win passage through the legislative process. That’s why they need an outcomes-based judiciary to implement their social agenda.

Justices that interpret laws through a constitutional lens won’t give Democrats the legislative victories that they’re looking for. More than any other reason, that’s why Sen. Schumer got the activists riled up with his threats.

Democrats have spent the last 3 years morphing into the ‘Verdict first, investigation later’ political party. Rep. Scott Perry, (R-PA), made the case that Democrats have become that party in this op-ed:

The most solemn duty undertaken by members of Congress is to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. We swear an oath before the beginning of every Congress. My Oath is something I’ve taken seriously throughout a lifetime of public service – from solider, to state representative to congressman. Unfortunately, leftists in Congress are using their sacred oath to the Constitution as justification to flout the primacy of its principles. We see this no more clearly than in the most recent push to impeach the president.

These rushed, faux impeachment proceedings are shrouded in secrecy. No one knows what the rules are, and it gives liberal members, like Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), an opportunity to blatantly fabricate facts of convenience and mislead the American people.

That’s Schiff’s M.O. He’s spent the last two years misleading the American people about the contents of the Mueller report. Once hopes fizzled with that (findings: “No collusion, No obstruction”), they’ve rolled out the next phony investigation with yet another forgone conclusion.

Republicans have argued that there wasn’t any obstruction of justice. The legal-dictionary.com explains what it takes to obstruct justice:

To obtain a conviction under section 1503, the government must prove that there was a pending federal judicial proceeding, the defendant knew of the proceeding, and the defendant had corrupt intent to interfere with or attempted to interfere with the proceeding.

I’d think that it’s difficult to prove corrupt intent without a wiretap recording or an email stating that intent. I don’t doubt that Schiff and other Democrats would speculate about that. It’s one thing to speculate. It’s another to prove.

Democrats first talked about impeaching President Trump before he became President Trump. The Constitution says that impeachment involves “The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States.” Before he’s inaugurated, Trump didn’t fit the constitutional definition. That’s irrelevant to these hyper-partisan Democrats. They just know that Trump is evil and he must be removed.

With Democrats like Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Maxine Waters, President Trump has been guilty since before his inauguration. This trio of troublemakers don’t really care about the Constitution. They care about impeaching and removing President Trump. If that requires throwing the Bill of Rights out, then that’s what they’ll do.

For a little over a week, Ms. Pelosi has been talking about this being a solemn time, that we should keep President Trump in prayer and that Jefferson, Madison and Franklin gave us “a republic if you can keep it.” Ms. Pelosi has repeatedly said that respecting the Constitution was the Democrats’ highest priority. Yet when she’s been asked to give Republicans the right to ask witnesses questions or to subpoena witnesses, Ms. Pelosi has been an autocrat.

When she started the impeachment inquiry, she didn’t do it by announcing the results of a vote from the People’s House. Ms. Pelosi stepped up to the microphone and announced that she was starting the inquiry. That means this inquiry isn’t a legitimate impeachment inquiry in the eyes of the courts. When Chairman Schiff requests documents, the White House won’t hesitate in rejecting Chairman Schiff’s request.

Had the whole House voted to start an impeachment inquiry, the House’s authority would’ve expanded substantially. Ms. Pelosi didn’t want Republicans to have the same rights that other minority parties had in past impeachment inquiries so she didn’t hold a vote. No special rules were created for this special investigation. Impeachment investigations, we understand, aren’t like other investigations because so much more is at stake.

We’re talking about undoing the will of the American people with impeachment and conviction. Other than voting to go to war, I can’t imagine a more somber moment the House experiences. Instead of voting on impeachment, Ms. Pelosi walked up to a podium like a queen and declared that the House had officially started their impeachment inquiry:

Pelosi caved to the Squad, Maxine Waters and the other nutjobs in her caucus. The rest of her caucus didn’t even get a chance to express the will of their constituents. The somewhat more moderate Democrats were told what they’d signed up for. Queen Nancy had made her dictatorial ruling. Queen Nancy had made the Democrats’ decision for them, too.

Remember when Queen Nancy led the fight for the ACA? That’s when Queen Nancy shoved Obamacare down our throats and 63 Democrats into involuntary retirement. That’s when Queen Nancy became famous for this:

In 2010, TEA Party activists stepped into voting booths across America, along with other patriots, and voted out Democrats en masse. When the results were finalized, Queen Nancy was no longer Speaker/Dictator because Republicans were the new majority. It’s time to throw Queen Nancy out of House leadership once and for all. It’s time we put the Squad in the minority for the foreseeable future, too.

Each day, Speaker Pelosi’s impeachment battleship takes on more water as the chop turns into rollers, then turn into breakers. Impeachment is quickly turning into the Democrats’ newest 4-letter word. Impeachment of this president has always been a risky proposition. Lately, though, it’s gotten downright frightening.

Let’s start with the key players. In previous impeachment investigations, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has led the impeachment investigation. Speaker Pelosi anointed Adam Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, to lead this impeachment investigation. That’s because Jerry Nadler, currently the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, screwed up his latest high-profile hearing so badly that Pelosi couldn’t pick Nadler.

Seriously, though, Democrats don’t have a person that’s capable of undertaking such a historic responsibility. Members of the Squad are too partisan to lead such a committee. Another 30-35 Democrats are freshmen, meaning they can’t run the impeachment investigation. Frankly, none of the remaining Democrats could withstand the pressure of that responsibility. The bad news for Ms. Pelosi is that that’s just one of her major problems.

Another major problem for her is that this faux impeachment was driven by hatred, first by Maxine Waters and Al Harris, then by AOC + 3. This faux impeachment wasn’t driven by legitimate proof. First, Russian collusion fell apart. Next, obstruction of justice fell apart. Both fell apart because there wasn’t any evidence. Finally, the Ukraine impeachment fiasco fell apart because Vice President Biden was more corrupt than President Trump by a country mile and then some.

This morning, House Minority Leader McCarthy sent this 2-page letter to Speaker Pelosi:

This afternoon, Speaker Pelosi replied:

Hours after McCarthy’s letter was posted, Pelosi responded with her own note suggesting Democrats would not be hitting pause anytime soon. She wrote that “existing rules of the House provide House Committees with full authority to conduct investigations for all matters under their jurisdiction.” Pelosi added: “We hope you and other Republicans share our commitment to following the facts, upholding the Constitution, protecting our national security, and defending the integrity of our elections at such a serious moment in our nation’s history.”

In other words, Pelosi told Leader McCarthy that, in her thinking, impeachment should be treated no differently than other oversight. If that remains her position, Democrats will have a difficult time defending that.

Nothing about this impeachment speaks legitimate. This is a show trial for the far-left. Republican senators would be wise to outright dismiss the case or drag it out and expose House Democrats are putting partisanship first, country far down the list.

Because Democrats cried wolf 250 times too many, nobody’s buying the Democrats’ line that the transcript is President Trump’s doomsday:


They especially don’t buy the things that Adam Schiff has said. Why would anyone trust the guy who said that he had evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia. Remember this golden oldie?

That’s when Rep. Schiff, (D-Calif.), had this exchange with Chuck Todd:

SCHIFF: All I can tell you is, reviewing the evidence that I have, I don’t think you can conclude that at all. Far from it.
Chuck Todd: But you admit that all you have right now is a circumstantial case.
Schiff: Actually, no, Chuck. I can tell you that the case is more than that and I can’t go into the particulars but there is more than circumstantial evidence.
TODD: You have seen direct evidence of collusion?
SCHIFF: I don’t want to go into specifics but I will say that there is evidence that is not circumstantial and is very much worthy of investigation…

That proof never materialized. Most of Schiff’s statements turned out to be false. Schiff has been peddling this foolishness since President Trump’s inauguration.

This past Tuesday, Ms. Pelosi said that Democrats were officially launching an impeachment inquiry. That’s BS. Until they take a vote on the House floor, the Democrats’ investigation remains unofficial. That speech was nothing but a PR stunt. The bad news for Democrats is that the particulars aren’t that important to people like AOC, Al Green and Maxine Waters.

They’ll demand an impeachment vote. Pelosi was hoping to save her majority by protecting her vulnerable freshmen with this past Tuesday’s PR stunt. AOC isn’t about playing things safe. She’s a my-way-or-the-highway type. She won’t hesitate in running Ms. Pelosi over.

That’s the definition of the Democrats impeachment dilemma.
