MONKEY TRIALS: Adam Schiff Is Banning Republicans From Impeachment Depositions And Holding Secret Closed Door Testimony Meetings

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff defended holding testimony behind closed doors in the impeachment inquiry he’s heading up against President Donald Trump.

Democracy Dies In Darkness: Adam Schiff Just Banned A GOP Lawmaker From Attending Key Ukrainegate Deposition
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., just banned a key Republican lawmaker from the deposition of a former anti-Trump national security official believed to be at the center of ongoing Ukraine proceedings, sources tell The Federalist. Schiff tossed Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., out of the deposition.

Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House are ‘beyond positive’ that President Trump had committed crimes ‘worthy of impeachment‘, and confidentially saying that he will ‘absolutely be impeached’. Yet, the have begun banning Republicans from attending the depositions, are holding testimony meetings in secret, and refuse to put impeachment of the president to a vote. What do all those things add up to? A monkey trial in a banana republic, that’s what, and these sham proceedings are a national disgrace.

America stands on a very dangerous precipice, and is nigh close to going over the edge. Democrats are not only keeping these meetings from public scrutiny, but they are racing full-speed to an impeachment that has not even been officially authorized by Congress. That is anarchy, that is the type of thing you see in third world countries, and that is the type of thing that could just well topple the entire system. It is obvious to anyone watching that the Democrats are just making it up as they go, hurling accusations without proof, and then pronouncing guilt as if a trial had been already concluded. When a country loses the perception of justice, it cracks the very foundation it is resting on. This monkey trial by the Democrats, regardless of outcome, has already made America the loser.

Schiff Says Secret Testimony Aimed at Keeping Trump in the Dark

FROM THE FEDERALIST: Although the U.S. House of Representatives has not approved a resolution authorizing a formal impeachment investigation, House Democrats have nonetheless insisted that they have full authority to subpoena all documents and testimony they desire, even if specific committees lack the jurisdiction to demand particular information. Schiff, whom Pelosi tapped to lead her party’s anti-Trump impeachment efforts, chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), which only has jurisdiction over the federal government’s intelligence agencies and related components.

According to the Congressional Research Service, formal impeachment proceedings are typically referred to the House Judiciary Committee. Gaetz sits on that committee; Schiff does not. The House has yet to approve a resolution granting broad impeachment investigative authority to any of its committees.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff defended holding testimony behind closed doors in the impeachment inquiry he’s heading up against President Donald Trump, likening this phase of the investigation to a “grand jury.” source

Several officials told The Federalist that they believe Fiona Hill, who was subpoenaed last week to share her knowledge of allegations of wrongdoing against Trump regarding a phone conversation he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25, is one of the unnamed sources for the anti-Trump whistleblower whose August 12 complaint fanned congressional impeachment fires. Hill was reportedly planning to testify about her knowledge of the ouster of Marie Yovanovitch, a controversial figure who was removed from her post as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine in May.

Schiff has come under fire for blatantly lying about his staff’s interactions with the anti-Trump complainant. Although he falsely denied that neither he nor his staff had any interactions with the complainant, his team had actually coordinated with the complainant before the complaint against Trump was even filed.

Schiff has also raised the ire of transparency and open government advocates by selectively leaking incomplete and out-of-context information against Trump while stubbornly refusing to release full transcripts of his depositions of federal officials subpoenaed by his committee. READ MORE

As The Republicans In Congress Implode While The Cameras Roll, ‘Toothless Tiger’ Donald Trump Bets What’s Left Of His MAGA Cred On McCarthy

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

House Republicans flailed through a second day of multiple balloting Wednesday, unable to elect Rep. Kevin McCarthy as House speaker or to come up with a new strategy to end the political chaos that has tarnished the start of their new majority.

Gone are the days when an endorsement from Donald Trump all but meant certain victory, what you are watching play out in Congress right now is evidence of that. Not only is his endorsement of Kevin McCarthy not moving the needle in the current House Speaker fight, the very core of Trump’s original MAGA Movement have turned against him. It is literally stunning to watch how fast things are all falling apart for the Republican Party. Trump’s ‘house of sand’ is flowing out to sea right now. But we told you Trump wasn’t coming back, and he’s not.

“And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” Matthew 7:26,27 (KJB)

Now, the bigger picture we see when we go up to 40,000 feet is much scarier than just Trump and the MAGA Movement crashing and burning. The view from the top shows us an America that has absolutely lost its way, has no plan for the future, and is on the verge of bankruptcy with a National Debt well past $31,000,000,000,000.00 trillion dollars. We’ve been warning you for years that America was under the judgment of God, and as the New World Order continues continues its ‘divide and conquer’ assault, time is just about up. Today McCarthy entertained the idea of a ‘coalition government’ with the Democrats, something that shows you the GOP is out of gas.

McCarthy fails again in bid for speaker, GOP in disarray

FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS: For a fifth time, Republicans tried to vote McCarthy into the top job as the House plunged deeper into disarray. That came moments after the fourth vote showed 20 conservative holdouts still refusing to support him, unchanged from the previous time around and leaving him far short of the 218 votes typically needed to win the gavel.

“Let cooler, more rational heads prevail,” said Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Ohio, a conservative aligned with the far-right Freedom Caucus who nevertheless nominated McCarthy.

Rep. Lauren Boebert, a firm Colorado conservative, nominated Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., the chosen protest candidate of the day— and called for former President Donald Trump, the conservatives’ hero, to tell McCarthy, “`Sir, you do not have the votes and it’s time to withdraw.”

Earlier Wednesday, Trump had done the opposite, urging Republicans to vote for McCarthy. “Close the deal, take the victory, he wrote on his social media site, using all capital letters. “Do not turn a great triumph into a giant & embarrassing defeat.”

Yet the California Republican vowed to keep fighting despite losing in multiple rounds of voting that threw the new majority into tumult a day earlier. Animated private discussions broke out on the chamber floor between McCarthy supporters and detractors searching for an endgame. The House gaveled in at noon, but no other work could be done — swearing in new members, forming committees, tackling legislation, investigating the Biden administration — until the speaker was elected.

“Sure, it looks messy,” said Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., a McCarthy ally who quickly re-nominated him for the job with a rousing speech designed to peel off detractors. But democracy is messy, he said. “The American people are in charge.”

McCarthy himself entered the chamber saying, “We’ll have another vote.”

But the dynamic proved no different from Day One, as Democrats re-upped their leader, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, for speaker, and a right-flank leader from the Freedom Caucus twice offered a challenge to McCarthy — nominating Donalds in another history making moment. Both Jeffries and Donalds are Black.

“This country needs leadership,” said Rep. Chip Roy, the Texas Republican noting the first time in history two Black Americans were nominated for the high office, and lawmakers from both parties rose to applaud.

It was the first time in 100 years that a nominee for House speaker could not take the gavel on the first vote, but McCarthy appeared undeterred. Instead, he vowed to fight to the finish. The disorganized start to the new Congress pointed to difficulties ahead with Republicans now in control of the House.

President Joe Biden, departing the White House for a bipartisan event in Kentucky with Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, said “the rest of the world is looking” at the scene on the House floor.

“I just think it’s really embarrassing it’s taking so long,” Biden said. “I have no idea” who will prevail. READ MORE

Republican Kevin McCarthy Becomes First House Speaker Candidate To Not Be Elected On First Round In 100 Years Exposing Deep Fractures In The GOP

Published

on

republican-kevin-mccarthy-loses-first-round-vote-to-become-house-speaker-of-gop-controlled-congress-washington-party-split
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy lost the first round of votes for the House Speakership on Tuesday, exposing a deep split in Republican Party.

The Republican Party is a party with deep divisions, engulfed in swirling turmoil as exhibited today with Kevin McCarthy becoming the first person in one hundred years to not win house speaker in the first round of voting. I have been a Republican since 1980, with the first vote I ever cast being for Ronald Reagan, but I am a Maine coon kitten’s whisker away from switching to Independent. The Republican Party in 2022 stinks, talking to you Mitch McConnell, and it’s wound seems grievous and incurable.

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17 (KJB)

So you say to me, “Trump is the answer in 2024!”, and I will remind you that Trump never fired Fauci, never pardoned Julian Assange, never built The Wall, and never drained The Swamp. What exactly do you think Trump will do in 2024? Trump was ready to launch the military to vaccinate Americans, or have you forgotten that? No, the Republican Party, like the Democratic Party, are two wings on the same flesh-eating bird of prey, with their members there only to enrich themselves at our expense. Christian, the only way out is up, and while we wait for that, we need to be busy about the Lord’s Business. TO THE FIGHT!!!

Kevin McCarthy LOSES first ballot to become Speaker

UPDATED: House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy fell short in his bid for the Speakership for a second time on Tuesday with 203 votes, 15 votes shy of the 218 needed.

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Nineteen House Republicans backed someone other than McCarthy in the initial vote. It’s the first time in a century that a House Speaker was not elected on the initial round. It became apparent soon after the roll call vote began that McCarthy did not have the votes to outright win the gavel.

Audible gasps could be heard in the cavernous House chamber as more than a dozen Republican lawmakers stood in defiance to the California legislator’s bid.

Proceedings began with GOP Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik nominating McCarthy, as expected, and Democrats’ new No. 3 Pete Aguilar naming the 118th Congress’ new Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. Then, far-right Rep. Paul Gosar stood to nominate GOP Rep. Andy Biggs – one of the original five Republican lawmakers to lead opposition to McCarthy. Over the course of the vote, however – done in alphabetical order – some members threw wild cards into the mix. Biggs got 10 of the rebel votes, while nine members voted for someone else.

GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert cast her vote for fellow GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, who himself voted for McCarthy and has said he does not want the job. Freshman Republican Rep. Josh Brecheen cast his vote for Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, last year’s Republican Study Committee chairman. Another conservative member, Rep. Andy Harris, voted for Lee Zeldin – who left Congress at the end of last year to unsuccessfully run for governor of New York.

Throwing yet another twist into McCarthy’s would-be ascent, conservative Rep. Chip Roy put his support behind pro-Donald Trump Republican Rep. Byron Donalds.

It had been reported earlier that conservatives would offer up Biggs as a spoiler to McCarthy to prevent him from reaching a majority threshold. Voting is done in rounds until a majority consensus is reached. READ MORE

The House of Representatives is holding a second round of voting after GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy failed to win a majority of votes for Speaker of the House on Tuesday. McCarthy lost 19 Republican votes, falling far short of the 218 needed, and Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries also fell short of a majority, triggering a second round of voting for the first time in about 100 years.

The Disgusting Fawning Over Zelensky At The White House While America’s Own Border Lies In Ruins Is Emblematic Of Our Decline As A Nation

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Right-wing critics have berated Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky for wearing combat gear during a historic visit to the White House and Congress, where he made an impassioned plea for more funding to aid Kyiv’s defense effort.

What does a nation in decline look like? Well, it looks a lot like America on Day 1,011 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, actually. In America, our borders are wide open with over one million illegals streaming through every year. What’s being done about it? Nothing. America has a rapidly-escalating homeless problem with tent cities and street camps in every major city we have. What are they doing about it? Nothing. America just added a another trillion to our national debt, with no plan to lower it. Yet, in the midst of all that, RINO Mitch McConnell says that the ‘number one thing on the minds of all Republicans is more funding for the war in Ukraine’. Is that a joke, is that something from SNL? Sadly, no it is not.

“And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, The LORD liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people. But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 12:16,17 (KJB)

America right now is basically using Ukraine to fight a proxy war with Russia that no one voted for, and our leaders seem only too happy to spend what now amounts to nearly 100 billion dollars on ‘aid to Ukraine’. Zelensky showed up last night where a fawning Congress made him a rock star, where he shamelessly grifted for even more money. Congress did not have $5 billion to build a border wall to protect our own country, but they have $100 billion to waste on the Ukraine Russian conflict? This is what you would expect to see in a nation on it’s way down, and out.

Zelensky shows up in sweat pants to beg for more money from Democrats

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Commentator Tucker Carlson led the swipes at Zelensky, using his late night show on Fox News to accuse the Ukrainian leader of dressing like the ‘manager of a strip club demanding money’ amid the United States’ own border woes. Joining the criticism was Donald Trump Jr., son of former president Donald Trump, who called Zelensky a ‘welfare queen’ on Wednesday morning.

In his first foreign visit since Russia invaded his country in February, Zelensky showed up to the White House wearing a casual outfit – including a camouflage colored sweatshirt, similar colored pants and combat boots – in contrast to US president Joe Biden, who was wearing a suit. Zelensky followed up his meeting with Biden with a speech to Congress during which he made a plea for another round of defensive weapons funding.

Wendell Husebo, writer for the conservative news website Breitbart, also chimed in.

‘Zelensky arrives at the White House to demand more support than $45B aid in the omnibus bill,’ tweeted Husebo. ‘For $45B, show some respect and rent a suit.’

Other Breitbart employees also got involved, with its politics editor Emma-Jo Morris writing: ‘Zelensky flies all the way to the US, but still can’t put on a suit.’

The attacks on Zelensky came after a pandemic-era US federal immigration policy – known as Title 42 – expired, allowing an influx of migrants into the country.

The visit also came as US politicians are set to vote on a year-end spending package that includes about $45billion in emergency assistance to Ukraine. The United States has been by far the largest donor country to Ukraine, sending $18.5billion for arms and equipment. Germany, at $2.34billion, is the second largest.

Carlson said: ‘The president of Ukraine arrived at the White House dressed like the manager of a strip club and demanding money and amazingly no one threw him out.’ READ MORE
