HR 1 – The Democrat Plan To Turn America Into California

Step 1 in the Democrats’ plan for what some wags have called the “Californication” of America has now passed the US House of Representatives on a party line vote. HR 1 is so bad that not even the usual RINOs would vote for it, so that gives you some flavor of what a disaster for constitutional liberty the bill would be if it became law.

House Dems send message: Impeachment is on

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Rep. Jerrold Nadler's Sunday talk with ABC was the clearest indication yet that Democrats have decided to impeach Trump and are now simply doing the legwork involved in making that happen. And that means the debate among House Democrats will be a tactical one -- what is the best time and way to go forward -- rather than a more fundamental discussion of whether the president should be impeached. The timing decision is still up in the air, as is an overarching communications plan, but impeachment is on.

Of Course Trump Will Be Impeached

David Catron, The American Spectator

Republicans will begin this process with a majority of 53-47. That means a minimum of twenty Republicans would have to defect to the other side of the aisle, assuming the Democrats sustain the kind of solidarity they maintained during the 1999 Clinton trial.

And why didn’t House Democrats tighten their computer security practices after the hacking of DNC and Clinton campaign emails last year?

How Radical Islam Penetrated The U.S. House of Representatives

It is time this investigation became a national security investigation and the FBI and counterintelligence agencies replaced the politics-tainted Capitol Police as the lead agency investigating how House Democrats handed over the backdoor to the House computer network to a Hezbollah cell laundering its money through a car dealership and a crooked Iranian doctor.

The faction that kept Nancy Pelosi in power

Susan Ferrechio, Washington Examiner

The more concentrated caucus of liberals remained loyal to Pelosi, who, as the congresswoman representing San Francisco, is among the most left-leaning lawmakers in Congress and championed President Obama's liberal agenda during the two years when Congress and the White House were in Democratic hands, from 2009-11.
