Facts Matter: Democrats Undermining Their Own Impeachment Narrative

Democrats would like the American people to believe that their secret closed-door questioning of so-called witnesses has revealed some dark sinister impeachable actions by the President. However, when one reads the transcripts of the depositions what is revealed is almost the exact opposite of what the Democrats claim.

Jane Fonda's New Socialist Stunts

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Getting arrested sounds all naughty and risky — but there are no risks. The Capitol Police does not allow demonstrations on the Capitol grounds without a permit, so these leftists come unauthorized and play Martin Luther King for a day — unauthorized but not unannounced. Press attention (and adulation) is everything, so they make sure everyone knows they're coming. All the media adulation aside, the public doesn't care what these two old people, with all their expensive plastic surgery, are doing. Jane got arrested. Nothing. She got herself re-arrested. Nothing. She brought in Ted. Double nothing. What a waste of good plastic.

Stop Impeachment Action: Visit Your Representative’s Local Office This Week

Members of Congress will be back in their Districts this week, so it will be a great opportunity for MAGA supporters and anyone who is just plain tired of the insanity in Washington to visit their Representative to tell him or her you agree with President Trump and Rep. Zeldin and you want Democrats to stop the impeachment insanity and get back to addressing the Nation’s real problems.

Fact-Free Impeachment

Even the selective leaks emanating from Schiff’s secret dungeon have not set forth facts that support any claim of criminal conduct by President Trump. What is going on here is the criminalization of policy differences and the creation of a process to legitimize the raw hatred Democrats and the permanent political class have for Donald Trump.

Exit, Lying

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

God forbid, however, that any of the allegedly objective professionals in the political press corps should bother digging up any facts that might adversely impact the Democratic Party. Instead, they pliantly repeat whatever Democrats tell them, including Ms. Hill’s claim that she is the victim of an “abusive husband” (despite praising him as “the love of my life” in social media posts during her campaign). Democrats tell lies, the “fake news” media report these lies as if they were true, and everybody is supposed to pretend we don’t notice any discrepancies. Goodbye, then, to Katie Hill, who leaves Washington the same way she came in — exit, lying.

Schiff’s Un-American Impeachment Resolution

Our comparison of how impeachment was handled in the past versus the resolution the Democrats will vote on today making Rep. Adam Schiff the prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner shows this process is a sham. The process is not intended to get to the facts, because the President did nothing wrong, instead, today's vote clarifies that the goal has always been to create a narrative to frame the President.

Call These Vulnerable Democrats, Tell Them To Vote NO On Schiff’s Un-American Impeachment Rules

There are 31 Democrat members of Congress who represent districts that President Trump carried in 2016. We urge CHQ readers and friends to call those Democrats to tell them that, when Election Day 2020 rolls around, their District’s conservative voters will remember if they voted to help Adam Schiff frame President Trump and will hold them accountable at the ballot box.

How The Establishment Media Is Helping Schiff Promote Impeachment

Schiff and the Democrats are counting on the establishment media’s willingness to rely on anonymous sources as a central element of their strategy to get President Trump. Keeping the impeachment inquiry behind closed doors means journalists will gobble-up anonymous leaks; the result is a deluge of hearsay reporting that allows Schiff and the Democrats to shape the narrative and stymie any fact-based defense from President Trump.

Field of Anonymous Trump Donors Getting Crowded

Debra J. Saunders, The American Spectator

The field of anonymous Trump accusers is getting crowded. In August, an identity-shielded whistleblower came forward with a complaint that “the president of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.” The unidentified whistleblower’s lawyer said he represents another unidentified whistleblower. If there’s something voters don’t know that Anonymous thinks they need to, he or she could pen another op-ed, not a bestseller — or better yet, with an election a year away, come forward and face the wrath of the right in the light of day.

Why are Democrats acting like they have something to hide?

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

These are extraordinary events and the effort to expose the truth about both the spying on a presidential candidate and the subsequent plot to upend his administration is so rich with bombshell potential that you would think the media would be licking their chops over the scoops to come. Instead, The New York Times, CNN and the rest of the Democratic propaganda outlets are furious that the public may finally learn the whole sordid story about one of the most disgraceful episodes in presidential history. And so they have joined forces with Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi in attacking Barr for daring to hunt for the truth.

Durham Investigation Is Criminal: a Disaster for the MSM

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

It's just been announced that the John Durham investigation into the provenance of the Russia probe has turned into a criminal investigation. Subpoenas and grand juries are coming, real ones, not the Star Chamber counterfeits being orchestrated by the panicked Democrats and their junior league Southern California Torquemada. To those of us who have been watching this spectacle from the beginning, this was inevitable. After all, where'd the Mueller/Russia probe come from in the first place? Since there was absolutely no there there, it makes no sense that it wasn't a fraud from the outset. Who started it? We should soon be finding out.

Debate questions that the Democrats should have been asked

Ann Coulter, The Hill

The most riveting moment came when Joe Biden finally was forced to explain his demand, as vice president, that the Ukrainian president fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company that was paying Biden’s son millions of dollars. Just kidding. Of course that didn’t happen. The media’s role in ferreting out the facts of Biden’s Ukrainian scandal is simply to announce repeatedly that the vice president is as clean as a whistle — That’s not true, it’s disproven, it’s been debunked! Instead of hours of denouncing Trump, how about the next debate’s moderators ask the Democrats to explain some of their more bizarre pronouncements?

Media Attempt to School Republicans Is a Disingenuous Fraud

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

The real crisis in America today is the utter politicization of the increasingly distraught legacy media. The election of Donald Trump challenged their cozy understanding of the world, turning it upside down. Adding insult to the injury of that existential assault is the fact that Donald Trump has been wildly, spectacularly successful. He has made America more prosperous, more secure, less harried by bureaucrats, and freer in their ability to practice their religion. What we are witnessing with such gems of hysterical mendacity are the pathetic death throes of a discredited political franchise and its rapidly disintegrating narrative.

Trump's Labeling of 'Fake News' Was an Understatement

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Those same mainstream media outlets are now making a big deal out of the Ukraine, even though Trump was obviously trying to figure out who had instigated the Russia probe in the first place. Wouldn't you? And as for Biden, media have known about the humungous corruption of Biden, Hunter, and Burisma since 2015 and barely reported it. It was clearly of no interest to them because the right people, their people, were the ones being corrupt. The newspapers above should all have a stamp on the front pages "CAUTION- -DISINFORMATION." The networks should lose their licenses. They have abused their near-monopoly statuses.

Martina Navratilova’s loyalty to Trump-hating overlords

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The requirement to prove one’s fealty to Trump-hating leftist overlords impacts more people than you realize. As a testament to what the left does to the very people they claim to represent, Ms. Navratilova has been reduced to sniping at another gay person who is actually doing work to improve the lives of everyone and working to, literally, save the lives of gay people in countries that remain determined to imprison and even kill them. The strategy of the bullies on the left to destroy an icon like Ms. Navratilova is meant to send a message to every other liberal: Don’t you dare step out of line or you will pay a horrible price.

Bad Gaslighting Epidemic Sweeps The Elite

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Because they're hiding their own incompetence, our elite tries to convince us that we are crazy for noticing just how lame they are. That’s called “gaslighting,” the straight-faced denial of what’s happening right in front of you that tries to leverage your politeness and deference to convince you that it’s not the elite that’s rotten. You’re just crazy for noticing, you crazed crazy person of craziness. It’s bad enough that they lie to us all the time. But what makes it worse is how their lies are such glaringly obvious fabrications and/or dissimulations that the deepest insult is that they think we might believe them.

The Incredible Vanishing Whistleblower

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Imagine the Republicans had tried to impeach then-President Bill Clinton in 1998 for some phone call he made to a foreign leader, and that they'd said they had an anonymous whistleblower who never heard Clinton's phone call. The press would have mocked all of it as an enormous waste of time and money and a huge distraction from the legislative "business of the people." Their completely different and partisan reaction to this only underlines how much collusion goes on between the journalists and the Democrats. They're hard to distinguish from one another. They use all the same talking points and catchphrases.

Anonymous Accusations and Their Dangerous Purveyors

David Catron, The American Spectator

Anonymous accusations have been regarded with suspicion by honorable leaders for at least two millennia. Media hype and third-rate pollsters notwithstanding, the majority of voters know exactly what is going on here. The danger is that they will eventually conclude that any system that employs such people is irredeemably corrupt. Trump’s supporters voted for him because they still believe in the system, that it can be fixed with a new kind of leader who doesn’t worship the state gods to whom the Washington establishment swears obeisance. This may be the last chance to convince the voters that they really matter.

Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Our preferred replacement for acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan is acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli. Cuccinelli has three things that McAleenan lacked – a commitment to the Trump border security agenda, a willingness to fight Democrats and the Republican establishment to make the President’s agenda a reality, and the effective TV presence necessary to sell it to the American people.

The Self-Congratulation in Banned Books Week

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

"We work to never allow content with hate speech in our stores, and in cases when something slips through, we take quick and resolute action to remove it." The American Library Association has a new list of Top 10 Most Challenged Books in libraries. Troublemakers with time on their hands could have fun compiling a list of books that libraries choose not to stock due to controversial content. We could host a splashy celebration of Books Librarians Hate Week. They should acknowledge that some noxious books and ideas are worth protesting or ignoring. But you cannot celebrate free speech except for that which you want to ban.
