Nancy Pelosi

Happy retirement, Speaker Pelosi

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The Ukraine telephone call is, far and away, the weakest and hardest-to-understand conspiracy. All of it was reported by a “whistleblower” witness — who did not witness anything! No wonder House “Intelligence” Committee Chairman Adam Schiff had to fabricate a transcript of a phone call that did not occur. Few people know better than Mrs. Pelosi that Democrats are committing political suicide right now. Asked if she worried that the impeachment crusade could cost her the speakership, she tried to sound noble — always a tell that a politician is lying. “It doesn’t matter,” she sniffed. “Our first responsibility is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

In Trump impeachment, 'no one is above the law' could backfire on Democrats

Byron York, Washington Examiner

By stressing that Trump is not "above the law," Democrats are basing their case against the president on the argument that he broke the law and must be held accountable. But it's not at all clear that Trump broke any laws in the Ukraine matter. In the face of a vigorous Republican defense, any argument on that question is likely to end inconclusively. It will be very, very hard for House Democrats to show that Trump committed a crime. Democrats have not helped their cause by accusing Trump of criminal behavior. "No man is above the law" sounds good, but it requires the impeachers to make a case that the president did, indeed, break the law. Look for Democrats to seek an easier route.

Pelosi Bows to Hollywood Extremists

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When Nancy Pelosi finally announced she would support an impeachment process, Tinseltown was positively giddy. The entertainment elites believe they are unusually gifted people. Yes, in American society, they are the closest things to royalty, a suggestion that should trigger nausea. But that is a reflection of society. What amazes is that these people actually believe they are royalty and, as such, are aghast when the unwashed masses don't agree. This latest impeachment attempt only underlines two things. First, they don't believe in democracy. Second, as usual, they have no idea what they're talking about, since nothing they're proclaiming will come to pass.

Ukrainegate Shows We Need Fred Fleitz As Director Of National Intelligence

The United States needs an effective and uncorrupted intelligence apparatus to play its part in defending the nation, and Fred Fleitz has shown himself to be an adept and able administrator capable of doing the housecleaning necessary to air out the stench of Leftwing partisan politics in the intelligence community.

Conservatives Unravel Deep State Coup Against Trump

In this long article we summarize the tangled backstory conservatives have been able to unravel about the latest Deep State coup against President Trump. The details they have developed reveal a breathtaking assault on the Constitution by a conspiracy of Democrats and Far Left operatives in the intelligence agencies, in Congress and in Soros-funded organizations.

Pelosi’s impeachment flip-flop changes everything

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Pelosi may think she went only halfway and could eventually back down on impeachment, but that’s wishful thinking. Anything less than a public flogging of Trump will not satisfy the far left of her own party, including the 150 or so House members who already demanded impeachment before the Ukraine issue appeared. Meanwhile, Pelosi’s endorsement also pushes the presidential candidates toward the impeachment path, whether they like it or not. None of them can possibly be against it, nor can they be wishy-washy about it. Within days, there will be virtually unanimous support among the White House wannabes. Anything less will be disqualifying among the loud left.

What Conservatives Are Saying About Impeachment

We're with our friend Mark Levin: What a stupid, baseless, phony scandal the Democrats, Nevertrumpers & media are trying to promote. Endless conga line of Democrats and the like crying crocodile tears while covering up for the crooked Biden family. It won’t work.

We Saw This Russiagate Bombshell Coming

As we said in our 2017 column, General Mike Flynn’s Only Crime, Flynn’s only crime was being a truth-teller about Obama’s failures. We urge Judge Sullivan to grant attorney Sidney Powell’s motion on behalf of General Mike Flynn, to expose the conspiracy against him and President Trump and, for the government’s egregious conduct in the matter, to dismiss the entire case against General Flynn.

‘Expanded Background Checks’ A Fake Solution To Mass Shootings

Expanding background checks would not have prevented a single mass public shooter in recent history from obtaining firearms. Would-be mass public shooters rarely have disqualifying criminal or mental health histories—meaning, they often can and do pass background checks when legally purchasing their firearms.

Ohio State Representative Candice Keller Was Right

In the wake of the Dayton, Ohio mass murder Ohio state Representative Candice Keller put up a Facebook post that has provoked fury from establishment Republicans and liberal Democrats alike, primarily because what she said was so undeniably true.

Bozell: Public Officals Should Boycott CNN El Paso Town Hall

CNN has announced that Chris Cuomo will host a townhall event tonight, which is being billed as America Under Assault: The Gun Crisis. Due to CNN's blatant bias on the issue, our friend L. Brent Bozell, III, Founder and President of the Media Research Center, quickly called upon public officials to boycott tonight’s townhall in El Paso, Texas.

What Democrats Really Mean When They Attack ‘White Nationalism’

When the Left demands that President Trump or other Republican politicians denounce “white nationalism” remember, in their ideological language they are not talking about skinheads, Neo-Nazis, Klansmen and the like, they are talking about the American societal core of capitalism, free markets, limited government and American traditional culture and values.

Five Lessons From The Weekend’s Mass Killings

When the inevitable gun ban and gun confiscation bills are introduced, and when the politicians decry “gun violence,” don’t apologize or feel guilty if your initial thought when you heard the news of the mass killings in El Paso and Dayton was “I should buy a gun.” You were right.

Racist Purge Decimates Democrats’ Campaign Committee

There is something very disquieting about a national political party that aspires to govern the country engaging in a race-based purge of its top staff. Such a blatantly racist act should serve as a warning to all Americans of what is to come if Democrats ever control all three branches of the federal government.

GOP List Of Shame On Budget Vote

From our perspective the spending deal was no victory, but another “fear The Turtle” moment in which the not-so-subtle big spending hand of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell manipulated the White House and the House Republican Leadership into once again abandoning any pretense of fiscal restraint.

Border Wall Big Win, But Not Fundamental

President Trump and conservatives won a big victory in the Supreme Court’s Wall ruling and in the otherwise disastrous spending bill, but we must be prepared to renew the immigration fight when Congress returns in September and takes-up the next round of spending bills.

What Do You Call A One-Legged Stool?

Principles matter in elections, and with all four legs of the 2016 big table coalition working full throttle on his behalf Donald Trump is a shoo-in for reelection, but a stool or table supported only by the one leg of Donald Trump’s outsized personality is likely to crash on Election Day.

Trump and Pelosi Team up for Bigger Government, Deeper Debt

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Bipartisanship less often involves members of both major parties coming together to serve some great national interest and more often involves them coming together to serve their personal political interests as members of Washington's elected class. The Trump-Pelosi debt-and-spending deal is a short-term political win for the Washington establishment of both parties and a long-term loss for the American people. Rather than serve a great national interest, it attacks a great national interest: the solvency and future prosperity of this nation. It will not help Make America Great Again. It will make America bankrupt sooner.

Conservatives Oppose Trillion Dollar Spending Boondoggle

The Trump administration projected in March that this year’s deficit will hit $1.1 trillion, up from last year’s deficit of $779 billion – a figure comparable to the Obama-era deficit. After months of urging congressional and administration negotiators to prioritize reductions in spending, the Conservative Action Project has come out in opposition to this irresponsible bipartisan budget deal.

Trump Sucked Into McConnell Spending Betrayal

The voters who want fiscal responsibility who powered the Tea Party Wave and the Trump Movement haven’t gone away. While they may grudgingly support President Trump in 2020 against a Far-Left progressive Democrat, congressional Republicans who think they can spend their way to reelection will face the wrath of those voters.
