    Rep Meadows sums up the Dem’s voting delays in the Senate perfectly. It’s disconcerting to see how many people can be fooled by the same people over and over again despite the repeated failures of all of their previously fake–serious and concocted allegations about the elected President.

    As soon as a person or a gov’t entity is pressured or bullied by Schiff into turning over a large evidence boulder, the perpetually Abusive Adam immediately claims the evidence will definitely be found under the next boulder and the next just like the last 3 years. It might be the longest, unsuccessful, political fishing adventure in American history. Is this sane behavior?

    It was disturbing to read last week that an advisor from the NSC named Andrew Peek was physically removed from the White House grounds.

    The insurrection from within the Deep State must be ongoing. The path to advancement for young bureaucrats may now be through the Resistance. They are required to spy, leak, inform or just repeat gossip, in order to please their superiors; and the recommendations of co-workers is essential to career advancement.

    The concept of a professional, impartial and patriotic civil service may now be dead. There will evolve parallel Democrat and Republican senior bureaucracies for purposes of advising and supporting the incumbent President. The bureaucrats from the party out of power will be given very limited duties and access to information. They will have virtually no access to the President or his administration.

    Along with the extra expense and the redundancy, there will be ample opportunities for mischief; but mischief appears to be a prime objective of the Deep State now.

      This is the logical next step when a nation loses it’s foundations. Our American principals were common and shared for hundreds of years from the founding, despite differences in party and threats of bombastic alternatives. I believe common massive threats from two world wars, along with education systems that remained focused on civics and real history, combined with high rates of religious affiliation and two parent homes, kept it all together. The destruction began in the 60’s revolution, spread quietly with government-driven education systems influences, and reached a zenith with the election of the communist agent Obama. President Trump is our knight, our super hero, nearly single handedly pushing back the forces of evil. He has rallied our patriots, those who love America, and is expanding hope for young and old.

      R2020 – I hate to tell you but there has been bifurcated service within the USG (especially DOJ because they have the power to determine who is prosecuted and who isn’t). for a very long time. The General public just didn’t have much visibility into it (unless they knew someone trying to navigate within it) prior to the very public scorched earth efforts deployed by some members of the previous administration and those of their ilk. Previous to that time, if you were competent and hard working you were left relatively unmolested to do your job regardless of your perceived political affiliation. I say perceived because I don’t remember very many of my former colleagues actually discussing their political persuasion even though a few did. That being said, the political persuasion of a colleague wasn’t particularly difficult to determine if you listened to their opinions, preferences and stated goals to determine what was important to them; observed how they spent their money; and watched how they order their professional and personal lives. If your political preferences weren’t the preferred outlook of the day, you just weren’t ever seriously considered for promotion unless the position was undesirable, hard to fill or was a path to nowhere. We use to call them the favored children. If your political preference aligned with the ruling powers however, you could be promoted to levels well above your demonstrated ability to perform (Peter Principle on steroids). It used to be more insidious and not as blatant as it is now but here we are. I never thought that political affiliation played a role in personnel decisions but about halfway through my career I realized in retrospect that was only because I didn’t want to believe it was so. Did I mention that I’m a slow learner? Things that previously had seemed mysterious suddenly became clear and made sense (as it were) when I acknowledged the obvious reality staring me in the face. Acknowledging reality as it is permits you to accurately assess things and make intelligent choices on when, how and where to proceed or not to at all. Office politics are often more insidious and incestuous than professional politics but unfortunately and terribly sadly the perils of office politics are not just limited to governmental institutions.

    CHECKMATE!

    Trump is good at 3-D chess, but the year 2020 has brought another complication—impeachment—so I decided to draw a cartoon showing our president playing 2020-D chess.

    Led by Nancy Pelosi, the House Democrats have impeached our president and they did it without proper procedure, evidence or fairness.

    The Democrats wanted Trump removed even before he was inaugurated. Their expensive Russia collusion hoax dragged on for several years before it finally collapsed. They then immediately moved on to another lie. If they can focus a perpetual laser beam of negativity onto Trump, it will hurt his chances of reelection. Or so they think…

      They have no case so all they can do is create this giant theater where actors put on a show about unfairness. It was satisfying to see all their amendments get tabled by McConnell one after the other.

      McConnell needs impeachment souvenirs to hand out to the democrats. Monogramed crying towels. Send a case over to the House.

    Joe Biden is really really evil:

    Press Watch: Why is the mainstream media so gentle with Joe Biden?

    And the press are covering for him

    This:

    “As Matthew Yglesias explains for Vox, it’s not just that the bankruptcy bill “made it harder for individuals to file for bankruptcy and get out of debt, a legal change that credit card companies and many major retailers had championed for years.” It also undercuts the fundamental principle “that people who fail or experience bad luck can move on with their lives.”

    As Adam Levitin writes for the American Prospect, it was “perhaps the most anti–middle class piece of legislation in the past century”:

    The result was greater profits for consumer lending businesses, many of which are based in Biden’s state of Delaware. Not surprisingly, then, by lowering the risk of bad lending decisions, the Biden bankruptcy bill unleashed a glut of aggressive private student lending, which has contributed to the massive rise in student loan debt.

    He voted against three amendments to ease bankruptcy requirements for consumers whose financial troubles stem from medical expenses. He voted against an amendment that would have helped seniors keep their homes. He voted against exempting servicemembers and widows of servicemembers killed in action from the law’s eligibility restrictions. He voted against an amendment to exempt women whose financial troubles stemmed from deadbeat husbands’ failure to pay child support or alimony. And Biden even voted against an amendment that would have ensured that children of debtors could still be given birthday and Christmas presents.”

      • I know that Schiff, Nadler and Company are much too dim bulbs to anticipate that they might be in real trouble now. That they are going to be asked questions that they will not want to answer, but that this nation has been wanting to ask for more than the last four years.

        Their counselors call themselves “Lawfare” because they don’t care about the law – nor about the nation. To them, the law is an instrument of injustice. It is a cudgel meant to be swung, and if it’s being swung at you then you have no rights. The Democrats ripped their kid gloves off when they realized that their crimes in Ukraine were about to be exposed. They stopped pretending. And, fatally for their infernal cause, they saw no reason to be concerned about what would happen in the next chamber. Apparently they simply believed that, if they were bellicose enough, they’d get their way there, too.
