    The Trump administration has asked the military how quickly it would be able to pull nuclear weapons out of storage and load them onto bombers and submarines should an arms control treaty with Russian be allowed to expire, a report suggests. Made to the US strategic Command in Nebraska, the request is said to be part of a strategy to pressure Moscow into renegotiating the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) before the US presidential election, three sources told Politico. The Trump administration reportedly believes that making the request outlines how serious they are about letting the agreement lapse should...
  • Pelosi resists calls for Barr’s impeachment, saying the November election will be ‘the solution to many problems’

    Washington Post (democracy dies with democrats) ^ | 6/25/20 | John Wagner, Robert Costa
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday called Attorney General William P. Barr “contemptible” and “a mess” but stopped short of backing calls from some Democrats for his impeachment, suggesting the best way to remove him is to elect Joe Biden president. “One hundred and thirty-one days from now, we will have the solution to many problems, one of them being Barr,” Pelosi said during a Washington Post Live interview. Her comments came a day after a high-profile House Judiciary Committee hearing at which Democrats accused Barr of politicizing the Justice Department, including by intervening in criminal cases to the...

    State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R) of Butler County is slated to propose a resolution calling for the impeachment of Gov. Tom Wolf (D), contending that the governor has “violated a number of our God-given rights affirmed in the United States Constitution.” Metcalfe sent a memo to colleagues on Friday, asking them to cosponsor his measure to impeach the governor over his administration’s response to the coronavirus in the Keystone State. In the memo, Metcalfe states that Wolf’s order “mandating the closure of physical locations of all businesses that he has deemed ‘non-life sustaining’ has violated our citizens’ rights in many...

    Rep. Adam Schiff, the California Democrat who played a central role in President Trump’s impeachment and Senate trial, said Friday he sees a “profound and disturbing echo” of what unfolded late last year in the administration's coronavirus response. Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the president’s reluctance to work with Democratic governors who are critical of him is the “strongest echo” from the impeachment proceedings. **SNIP** “The strongest echo from the trial was when he was talking about how he didn’t want to return the calls from governors, he didn’t want his vice president to return calls...

    Monday on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus said instead of impeaching President Donald Trump. Congress should have been investigating the coronavirus pandemic in China in January. Marcus said, “I think that look this president has been hit with something that no president has ever had to deal with. I just resent the people that are going after him now. They are already talking about another impeachment. I hate to tell you that, that Adam Schiff is already investigating this.” Bartiromo said, “You are hitting on something that is really important because, for three years,...
  • The Real Threat to Our Democracy During Coronavirus - Pelosi, Schiff & Co. were too busy dragging the country through impeachment to pay attention to ominous developments in Asia

    **SNIP** If there ever was a real threat to our democracy in today’s rancid political climate, it emanates from Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats who follow them like lemmings. This coronavirus first appeared in November 2019. By December 31, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan knew about it and were on alert. Singapore knew on January 4. South Korea on January 8. By January 9 the World Health Organization and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control were onto it. And what was Congress doing during this time? We all recall that December was consumed with impeachment, and that the...

    WASHINGTON - House lawmakers are readying to campaign in the post-impeachment landscape, with Democrats eager to focus on policy issues and Republicans planning to attack swing-district Democrats for voting to remove a president whom many of their constituents support. Democrats plan to defend the majority, and specifically their 30 seats in districts that Mr. Trump won in 2016, by discussing the issue that gave them the gavel in 2018: lowering health-care costs. Lawmakers expect to stay far away from talking about the two articles of impeachment the House passed against the president in December. Republicans, meanwhile, will largely embrace running...

    With impeachment no longer in their arsenal, Democrats are coming to terms with a new reality: they have few, if any, weapons to take on an emboldened President Donald Trump as he openly settles scores with his political adversaries and continues breaching the wall between the Justice Department and Oval Office. Democrats vented outrage Tuesday over Trump's attack on his own DOJ prosecutors and his demand of a lighter sentence for longtime ally Roger Stone. One after another, top Democrats in the House and Senate said Trump's 2 a.m. Twitter intervention further erodes the rule of law. “Coupled with the...

    The Democrats’ impeachment saga not only ended Wednesday with a double acquittal but a $100 million windfall for President Trump’s reelection campaign efforts, the Republican National Committee (RNC) revealed Saturday. The RNC, Trump's campaign and their joint fundraising committee have raked in $117 million in online donations since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry on Sept. 24, 2019, thanks to an influx of new small-dollar donors who wanted to stand by the president. "We've seen through our record-breaking fundraising that the Democrat's bogus impeachment galvanized President Trump's supporters across the country to contribute financially to his re-election efforts,”...

    **SNIP** “The drive to impeach President Trump did not begin with the allegations before us,” he said. “Here was reporting in April of 2016: ‘Donald Trump isn’t even the Republican nominee yet… [but] impeachment is already on the lips of pundits, newspaper editorials, constitutional scholars, and even a few members of Congress.” “Here was the Washington Post headline minutes after President Trump’s inauguration: ‘The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.'” “The articles of impeachment before us were not even the first ones House Democrats introduced,” McConnell added. “This was go-around number seven. Those previously-alleged ‘High Crimes and Misdemeanors’ included...

    As Democrats and the media remain fanatically obsessed with assembling some form of a “quid pro quo” from the infamous Trump-Zelensky phone call, new details have emerged regarding Burisma, the company for which Hunter Biden worked and the company that Ukraine’s top prosecutor had been investigating before Vice President Joe Biden had the prosecutor fired via a months-long pressure campaign. According to web archives, top Mitt Romney adviser Joseph Cofer Black, who publicly goes by “Cofer Black,” joined Burisma’s board of directors while Hunter Biden was also serving on the board. According to The New Yorker, Hunter joined Burisma’s board...

    Marco Rubio's widely mocked justification for acquitting Donald Trump, which conspicuously avoided condemning or approving the president's conduct, was not exactly a profile in courage. The Florida Republican nevertheless laid out a defensible position that rejected a dangerously broad claim by Trump's lawyers, and in that respect, he set an example his fellow senators should follow if they want to preserve impeachment as a remedy for grave abuses of presidential power. "Just because actions meet a standard of impeachment does not mean it is in the best interest of the country to remove a president from office," Rubio said. While...

    A number of House Democrats are gearing up to stage protests against President Trump's State of the Union address once again Tuesday, this time after voting to impeach him. Female Democrats are reprising their coordinated white outfits to show solidarity with women, and, as in years past, at least a handful of lawmakers are considering or planning to boycott Trump's speech in the House chamber entirely. **SNIP** Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), who introduced articles of impeachment against Trump in 2017, skipped the last two State of the Union addresses. He told The Hill that he has no intention to "go...

    Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the lead House manager in President Trump's Senate trial, said Sunday that there is nothing Democrats could have done differently during the impeachment process. Ahead of the Senate’s likely vote to acquit President Trump on Wednesday, Schiff defended Democrats’ methods and said that he and his colleagues “proved” their case. “Look, there's nothing that I can see that we could have done differently because as the senators have already admitted, we proved our case. We proved our case,” Schiff said on CBS's “Face the Nation.” **SNIP** CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked Schiff if it was...

    NY Post ^ | 1/30/20 | Josh Hammer
    After months of hype and pseudo-drama ginned up by the left, public and secret testimony and breathless “smoking-gun” headlines, it’s taking the Senate just two weeks to bring an end, finally, to the impeachment circus. And it is ending with the always-inevitable acquittal of President Trump. What a tragic, monumental waste of time it has been. After all, anyone capable of rudimentary arithmetic could have seen this foreordained outcome coming from Day One. Indeed, it’s not entirely clear why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the rest of the leading luminaries of the Democratic Party even...

    For more than a decade the media have told us House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is some kind of master strategist. Oh, yes, President Trump has met his match in Madam Pelosi… Me? Well, I’ve always found her to be something closer to an idiot. But even with my low opinion of her, never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined she would botch this impeachment as badly as she did. Seriously… wow. What I mean is, even when a particular strategy is a bad one, it is at least a strategy. You can at least see the strategy...

    **SNIP** Senators have the coming weekend off - and the four Democrats who are running for president, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar and Michael Bennet - are expected to make a one-day dash to Iowa for some last-minute campaigning ahead of Monday’s caucuses. On Monday, the entire Senate will reconvene as a court of impeachment at 11 a.m., with each side given two hours to deliver closing arguments. Attendance is mandatory. At 3 p.m., the chamber goes back to being the Senate and Chief Justice John Roberts will stop presiding. Senators will then begin delivering individual remarks on the...

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes (R-CA) predicted that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) will subpoena former National Security Adviser John Bolton. Nunes said, “I actually have some bad news for you tonight…the president’s going to be acquitted. But the problem is, this isn’t going to end. I just can’t imagine that Adam Schiff, after three-and-a-half years of this nonsense, and Jerry Nadler are not going to continue this, right? They’re going to go back and they’re going...

    **SNIP** After months of treading delicately around the issue, the former vice president weighed in very deliberately in a series of stops in the western part of the state this week, spending more time talking about the impeachment trial (and his role in it) than about any of the policy fights that have dominated the campaign until now. Biden’s ads talk about how well he performs against Trump in head-to-head polls, but the impeachment drama illustrates his point far better than they any Quinnipiac survey. He got to impeachment about midway through his remarks at each stop, after (as is...
