  4. How Much Live Coverage of the Trump Takedown Attempt Must Air? The networks are planning live coverage of the House Democrats attempting to impeach President Trump over a phone call to the president of Ukraine. This is a very partisan exercise, but the very partisan networks always paint these as momentous turning points of history that are somehow nonpartisan. One of the most obvious ways our television “news” divisions demonstrate their bias is by deciding which news events deserve live coverage, canceling out their regular programming. At least, it’s obvious on the days when it happens. But it’s sneaky when you try to compare it to how they covered other breaking-news events that don’t line up with the Democrat agenda. Five years ago, the networks skipped any live coverage of the first hearings into the government failure to protect the consulate in Benghazi. But here we go again, with the Impeachment Hype Machine rolling at high speed. The sacred “process” must be aired live, and when Republicans attempt to impose a different narrative, in the words of Chuck Todd, that is “sabotaging” the process. Watergate analogies abound. So it’s not surprising that longtime PBS omnipresence Bill Moyers took out an ad in The New York Times insisting that for “the sake of the nation,” PBS replay the impeachment hearings in prime time, just as PBS did in 1973. “Disrupting its programming for a few weeks is a small price to pay for helping preserve the republic.” The fate of democracy and the fate of the Democrats are synonymous.
  5. PJMedia If you live in the farmlands of America, or in the vast mountainous regions far away from cities, a University of California Berkeley instructor wants you to know you're a bad person who has made bad choices and you deserve to be uncomfortable. The obviously brilliant person who came up with these groundbreaking conclusions is named Jackson Kernion, a self-described "Graduate Student Instructor at University of California." The since-deleted tweet that got him in trouble read, "I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans. They, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions. Some, I assume are good people. But this nostalgia for some imagined pastoral way of life is stupid and we should shame people who aren’t pro-city.” Campus Reform reported, Kernion began the thread by advocating against affordable healthcare solutions in rural America, saying that “Rural Healthcare Should be expensive! And that expense should be borne by those who choose rural America!” He argued that promoting a need for “affordable rural healthcare” is equivalent to arguing for rural Americans “to be subsidized by those who choose a more efficient way of life.” “Same goes for rural broadband. And gas taxes,” Kernion added.
  6. Daily Caller Radical criminal justice reformers won elections as top prosecutors in three D.C. suburbs Nov. 5 after a George Soros-funded PAC inundated sleepy local elections with millions of out-of-state dollars. In Fairfax County, Virginia, Democratic incumbent Ray Morrogh quit the party after saying that Steve Descano is unqualified to be in charge of public safety. In Arlington, Virginia, Democratic incumbent Theo Stamos said Parisa Dehghani-Tafti ran on the “preposterous” notion that the tony suburb was a bastion of racial unrest. An independent prosecutor said center-left residents voted straight-party tickets in the general elections to spite President Donald Trump, unaware that fringe candidates had only narrowly squeaked by in the primaries. Radical social justice activists will serve as the top prosecutors for three major Washington, D.C., suburbs — including the two wealthiest counties in the U.S. — after George Soros’s political action committee poured $2.1 million into ordinarily sleepy local races. In Virginia’s Fairfax and Arlington counties, the “reformer” attorneys ran on platforms far to the left of the Democratic incumbents, beating them in primary races before ultimately winning the general elections.

  8. Subverse News Nov. 13 2019 New Chinese Labor Camp Coordinates Released by Uyghur Activists On Tuesday the East Turkistan National Awakening Movement, or ETNAM, held a press conference to release coordinates of more suspected concentration and forced labor camps. Uyghurs, the ethnically Turkic people who inhabit the area, are calling for the restoration of independence, as well as international oversight of potential atrocities happening in the region.
  9. Breitbart House Democrats’ first impeachment inquiry public hearing on Wednesday was widely panned as the two career diplomats who testified failed to offer clear allegations of wrongdoing against President Donald Trump, and Democrats running the show found themselves on defense in response to the Republicans in the minority who were aggressive and effective in pushing their counter-narrative. “It was a total disaster for us,” one senior House Democrat aide told Breitbart News. “Too complicated,” another Democrat aide said. “This won’t make sense to regular people,” a third Democrat aide told Breitbart News. Wednesday marked the first public hearing of the Democrats’ formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The hearing opened slowly, taking 93 minutes for the panel’s chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and its ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as well as the two witnesses Bill Taylor and George Kent to get through their opening statements. Taylor’s opening statement, which he read in its entirely, was 20-pages-long and contained lots of unclear background information. Kent’s, which was nearly as long and winding, contained numerous history lessons about Europeans helping Americans in the Revolutionary War. ________ The long and really winding road...
  10. Daily Caller Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that the Senate cannot dismiss the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, meaning there will be a trial. “I don’t think there’s any question that we have to take up the matter. The rules of impeachment are very clear, we’ll have to have a trial. My own view is that we should give people the opportunity to put the case on,” McConnell told reporters after being asked about dismissing the articles of impeachment. Most Republican senators refused to rule out voting to remove Trump from office in an impeachment trial over the Ukraine scandal when contacted by the Daily Caller at the end of October. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: We Asked Every GOP Senator About Impeachment. Seven Ruled It Out.) The Caller contacted all 53 Republican Senate offices to ask if senators would rule out voting to remove Trump from office, and received a variety of responses–seven senators explicitly rejected impeachment in their statement. Senate Republicans do not appear to be concerned about House Democrats’ ongoing efforts to impeach Trump, with many saying even if the House were to move forward with impeachment, that there is no way the Senate would vote to impeach the president. (RELATED: Senate Republicans Are Not At All Worried About Impeachment) The Daily Caller spoke with over ten GOP senators in mid-October, who all shared their views about House Democrats’ efforts to impeach the President. Not one senator was concerned about the impeachment process, saying they are most concerned about the Democrats’ ongoing attempts to impeach Trump based on no hard evidence.

  12. Heat but no light: First public impeachment hearing a dud The first public hearing in the impeachment investigation of President Trump produced more heat than light. House Democrats claim this impeachment process is identical to that used for Presidents Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon. This is a whopper, even for politicians. Take subpoena authority, one of the most important tools of any investigation. For Clinton and Nixon, the majority and minority had equal authority; if the other side did not cooperate, each could get permission from the committee. Today, the majority can subpoena unilaterally, but the minority must always get permission. One of these impeachments is not like the others. Several things became apparent today. First, we saw why Democrats chose not to follow the less-partisan process used in past impeachments. Republicans asked Chairman Adam Schiff, D-California, when their request for the “whistleblower” to testify would be granted. He responded that they could later make a motion that the committee would decide. If you think Schiff’s committee will grant that request, I have some oceanfront property in Oklahoma to sell you. Second, the opening statements by Schiff and Rep. Devin Nunes, R-California, the committee’s ranking member, made clear their approach. Schiff and the Democrats say that Trump is guilty of “bribery” or even “extortion” by withholding foreign aid until the president of Ukraine promised to help him get reelected. Nunes and the Republicans challenge the Democrats’ credibility and their interpretation of whatever facts can be established.
  13. AG William Barr Says Release Of FISA Report Is ‘Imminent’ Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday that the release of an inspector general’s report on FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign is “imminent.” Multiple news outlets reported Tuesday that Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general, has invited witnesses interviewed in connection with the investigation to review portions of the forthcoming report. The step is routine in investigations conducted by inspectors general, and typically signals that the release of the report is near. Horowitz told lawmakers in June that his investigators had interviewed more than 100 witnesses and reviewed more than 1 million documents during the investigation, which began in March 2018. Barr confirmed during a press conference on Tuesday that the Horowitz report is forthcoming. “It’s been reported and it’s my understanding that it is imminent,” Barr told reporters in Memphis, according to Politico.
  14. The curious timeline for taking down Trump By Sharyl Attkisson, opinion contributor — 11/08/19 09:00 AM EST
  15. Good one. Thanks for the chuckle.
  16. ICYMI: House Democrats Lead Counsel For Trump Impeachment Circus Is A Former MSNBC Contributor I mean if you want a solid example of the Democrat-media complex at work with these Trump-Ukraine impeachment hearings, look no further than the majority counsel for the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee. Right now, Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent and U.S. Chargé d'Affaires for Ukraine Bill Taylor are testifying before a kangaroo court that aims to reverse the results of the 2016 election. So, it is well that a former MSNBC contributor, Daniel Goldman, was tapped by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chairman of the committee, to be another key person in this absurd effort. Goldman has peddled Russian collusion tin foil hat nonsense in his previous appearances on the network, so I mean this is a match made I heaven. Now, he’s working with House Democrats in trying to remove Trump
  17. LifeSiteNews Nov. 12 2019 Cardinal Vincent Nichols is the Archbishop of Westminster and President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales.

  23. The Daily Wire Andrew Klavan Nov. 13 2019 There seems to be some confusion in the media about the difference between the Right and the Alt-Right. For instance, the Alt-Right is famously anti-Semitic and yet The New York Times, a former newspaper, has associated them with Orthodox Jew Ben Shapiro in such sentences as, “Ben Shapiro is Alt-Right, and if you believe that, we have a yarn about Trump colluding with the Russians you’re really going to love, you sucker.” I guess the New York Times isn’t even pretending anymore. In any case, as a public service to the Times and other dishonest organs of misinformation strangling on their hatred of ordinary people’s freedom, here is a handy guide on how to distinguish between right-wingers, who believe in the noble concepts of liberty handed down to us by our forefathers, and Alt-Righters, who are sniggering little femboys spewing hatred on YouTube. It’s a subtle distinction but with a little help, even the New York Times might figure it out. One. Real right-wingers come in all different skin colors and religions and no religion and various sexualities and also include a *startling number of women who somehow manage to be extremely intelligent and also smoking hot, which is an amazing side benefit of the whole movement.
