The Only Thing Morbidly Obese in D.C. is the Government, by Tom Luongo

The federal government could lose 80 percent of its body fat to the benefit of the productive people who are being squashed by it. From Tom Luongo at tomluongo.me:

So House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to prove the observation as true that the “Left Can’t Meme” by going on TV to decry President Trump prophylactic use of hydroxychloroquine and zinc to fend off COVID-19 by calling him “morbidly obese.”

 

What’s so sad about this exchange isn’t the obviously awkward set up by Anderson Cooper, the unctuous virtue signaling by Pelosi or the pathetic pandering to her base it is that Pelosi gets everything exactly wrong.

If Trump is morbidly obese, which would be a co-factor in falling to COVID-19, wouldn’t it make sense then for him TO be taking whatever precautions he and his doctors deemed helpful?

I guess Nancy would know all about morbid obesity because that’s the only kind of legislation she’s capable of sponsoring.

Her latest legislative fiasco was a new $3 trillion stimulus bill with precious little ‘stimulus’ in it whic was rejected by members of her own caucus (because truly who at this point could be stimulated to anything other than nausea by Pelosi).

Did Pelosi Just Tear Up the Fabric of the U.S.? by Tom Luongo

Is the Democratic party doomed? From Tom Luongo at strategic-culture.org:

The annual theatre surrounding the President’s State of the Union address took another nasty turn in 2020. In times past with Nancy Pelosi (D-Shadow Gov’t) as Speaker of the House we’ve seen her grandstand on sending out the invitation.

She’s always there to take the spotlight onto herself, make herself the story to detract from President Trump. This year she didn’t disappoint against the backdrop of the greatest political defeat of her career.

Bookending Trump’s self-congratulatory speech where he took credit for a stock market he has nothing to do with and celebrating the starving and terrorizing the people of Iran, Pelosi first made a big show of Trump refusing to shake her hand and then tore up her copy of his speech after making sure the cameras were on her.

IMPEACHMENT WEEK: It’s OK To Be Bored; Not OK To Be White, by Ann Coulter

Musings on the impeachment farce and race from Ann Coulter at anncoulter.com:

It’s weeks like this that make me wish I had a job and didn’t have to stay home watching TV. With the impeachment nonsense dragging into its 56th month, I have some random observations, only a few of which have anything to do with impeachment.

1) As tempting as it must be for Republican senators to make a headlong rush to the TV cameras at the conclusion of the day’s festivities, they would be well advised to say this, and only this, each night:

Here are the vital issues the United States Congress did NOT address today:

— Repairing our highways, bridges and border with a major infrastructure bill.

— Ensuring that all Americans can get jobs by cutting off the deluge of cheap foreign labor.

— Providing the public with quality services by not inviting the rest of the world to come partake of government benefits meant for Americans.

— Fixing the disaster of Obamacare, so that all Americans have access to quality health care (by activating the same mechanisms that give them quality food, housing and iPhones: the free market, contract law and occasional government subsidies).

— Passing a bill to defund all the pointless, expensive military deployments around the globe, so we can FINALLY address the hellfires in our own hemisphere.

— Ending the opioid crisis by declaring war on Mexican drug cartels and building a wall.

How’s This Working, Nancy? by Jim Kunstler

Too bad a bunch of people aren’t going to be pulled in front of the Senate impeachment trial—if it happens—to testify. From Jim Kunstler at kunstler.org:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been clinging to her bill of impeachment for one reason: hoping that a judge will rule to release all the evidence and depositions collected by Robert Mueller’s investigation. What’s wrong with that? Mr. Mueller failed to find any prosecutable crimes. That was the sum and substance of his two-year-long exercise in bad faith. In which case, all that material is officially and legally evidence of nothing. Impeachment is a political act and sealed evidence of nothing can’t be released to one set of political actors in a political quarrel for use as a political weapon. More to the point — and to Mrs. Pelosi’s real motive here — the material is not for impeachment but rather to use the Mueller dossier as political opposition “research” for the coming election.

There is no question that from the start of his investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller knew that the case was opened under false pretenses, since his very close friend, the erstwhile FBI director James Comey, also knew by early 2017 that all the predicating material was substantially false, and that it was procured by Mrs. Clinton. To carry it beyond that was a scheme by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to issue a series of “scoping” letters that increasingly widened Mr. Mueller’s purview to go fishing for crimes in every area and every chronological phase of the president’s life. That smacks of what’s known in Anglo-American law as attainder by process: first declaring someone an outlaw, and only afterward seeking a crime to justify it. Under our system, first crimes are established, then persons liable for them are brought to court to answer charges.

Trump’s Letter to Pelosi, by Paul Craig Roberts

A letter from the president to the speaker of the house concerning the house’s impeachment effort is newsworthy, even historic. It’s breathtaking how little coverage President Trump’s letter has received from the mainstream media. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.com:

The Saker has posted President Trump’s letter to Nancy Pelosi with his commentary https://thesaker.is/very-important-letter-from-donald-trump-to-nancy-pelosi-must-read/ . I agree with Saker that Trump’s impression of the good condition of the US economy is largely a mirage produced by official statistics that have long been unreliable. The bad data fed to Trump is not his fault. I also agree with The Saker that the truth in Trump’s letter is its characterization of the impeachment.

The Saker asks if the presstitutes published Trump’s letter. The New York Times did but only by taking exception to every line of it. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/12/17/us/politics/trump-pelosi-letter.html

The Hill did not post the letter. Presstitute Bob Lehrman kept the content from The Hill’s readers and dismissed Trump’s letter “as a rich compendium of fallacies” that he will assign to his students so that as future speechwriters they will avoid repeating them. https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/475532-trumps-letter-to-pelosi-not-unhinged-but-worse-from-a-speechwriters

The Washington Post presstitute Jennifer Rubin finds Trump’s letter “bizarre and frightening.” But she doesn’t provide a copy that would let readers judge for themselves. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/12/17/so-many-hysterical-men/

AP doesn’t post the letter but “fact checks” “Trump’s distorted letter to Dems and History.” https://apnews.com/8b63593dda6377d54ce7e442821751cc

CNN presstitute Paul Begala doesn’t provide Trump’s letter which he characterizes as “evil.” https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/18/opinions/trumps-letter-to-pelosi-begala/index.html

Presstitute EJ Montini declares in USA Today that Trump’s letter is “deranged” and “repeats any number of falsehoods and delusions.” Again no letter. https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/12/18/donald-trump-nancy-pelosi-letter-deranged-impeachment-column/2685811001/

NBC News is the only “mainstream media” organization that made the letter available. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry/read-full-letter-trump-sent-house-speaker-nancy-pelosi-eve-n1103476

None of the presstitutes fact checked the impeachment charges.

As the presstitute media has again made completely clear, it is focused on controlling our minds by substituting its opinion for the facts.

 

Democrats Debate Whether Trump Has Been Impeached, by Alan M. Dershowitz

Alan M. Dershowitz unravels Nancy Pelosi’s machinations concerning sending the House’s articles of impeachment to the Senate and the legal ramifications. From Dershowitz at gatestoneinstitute.org:

  • Under Laurence Tribe’s scenario, the House Democrats get to “obstruct” the Senate and “abuse” their power (to borrow terms from the articles of impeachment).
  • I believe that the Senate need not wait for articles of impeachment to be transmitted. Senators are empowered by the constitution to begin a trial now — with or without further action by the House. Just as the House has the “sole power of impeachment,” so too the Senate has the “sole power to try all impeachments.”
  • Tribe and the Democratic House majority, led by Speaker Pelosi, want to have their constitutional cake and eat it too: they want Trump impeached but not acquitted. Sorry, but the Constitution does not permit that partisan, result-oriented ploy. Either Trump has been impeached and is entitled to a Senate trial; or he has not been impeached and is entitled to a clean slate.
  • So there are only two constitutionally viable alternatives: either Pelosi must announce that Trump has not been impeached; or the Senate must initiate a trial. Preserving the status quo indefinitely — Trump remaining impeached without having a trial — is unconstitutional and should not be tolerated by the American people.

Speaker Pelosi’s unconstitutional decision to delay transmission of the articles of impeachment to the Senate in order to gain partisan advantage raises the following question: has President Trump been impeached, or did the House vote merely represent an authorization or intention to impeach — which becomes an actual impeachment only when the articles are transmitted?

Shhhhh…Just Let the Democrats Schiff Themselves, by Kurt Schlichter

The Democrats are shooting themselves in both feet and only someone with oatmeal for brains wouldn’t hope that they bleed themselves to death. From Kurt Schlichter at theburningplatform.com:

Shhhhh…Just Let the Democrats Schiff Themselves

Military guys – and I am a graduate of the Army War College, which is not the one with noted expert on expertise Tom Nichols – try to abide by the apocryphal advice of Napoleon, who counseled that you should never interrupt your enemy while he is making a mistake. But this doesn’t apply to the Democrats because they are not only too dumb to listen to your warnings but their weird dogma actually makes it impossible for them to imagine that they are heading for disaster in 2020. So, I’m going to mock these losers mercilessly, safe in the knowledge that even though I am telling that anime lollipop-looking twerp Adam Schiff and Jerry the Oompa Loompa Nadler exactly what is going to happen, they are powerless to stop it.

Nancy Pelosi, who is no dummy, knows. She gets it. That’s why she’s not taking questions on her solemn, sad impeachment thing. She gets that she’s trapped by the Commie Caucus’s resolute determination to please their blue enclaves at the expense of alienating everyone else. So she’s trying to make it fade away. Yeah, hold onto that impeachment for a while. It’ll get better with age, just like Jennifer Rubin has.
