Would banning guns be an impeachable offense?

How about, just, you know, being FOR banning some guns.

Is that impeachable?


This is what it looks like to live in a bubble.

Election night...



RIP: Star Wars



They had an entire expanded universe to draw from, but they had to make it political, and open the door to all the stupidity that follows.



What representative nancy pelosi said...

“Unless you have bipartisan consensus, impeachment is a divisive issue in the country, many people would think it’s being done for political reasons.”

You're a mean one, mr. schiff...

Bill Barr is a serious danger to our Republic

He is going to have Durham indict any FBI agents who rightly were concerned with Trump's Russia collusion... and he is going to announce those indictments in the "spring or early summer" (his words).

And I bet it happens right as the Democratic National Convention is starting.


He is going to make decent FBI agents afraid to investigate any Trump-Russia collusion in the UPCOMING election, therefore giving Trump free reign to collude as much as he wants with not only no repercussions... but NO oversight.



Here's what else Barr will do. When Trump loses the election, Trump is going to claim "massive voter fraud". Bill Barr is then going to use the power of the DOJ to announce investigations into voter fraud and that the Electoral College *CANNOT* meet until the investigations are complete. They will get court injunctions, and it will go to the SCOTUS - which will uphold the "Electoral College" delay until the voter fraud investigation is resolved.

It will be a full on Constitutional Crisis.... and we might not survive it.

And they accuse righty of :conspiracy theories.

This is what msm hackery looks like.

IG Report Confirms Schiff FISA Memo Media Praised Was Riddled With Lies

IG Report Confirms Schiff FISA Memo Media Praised Was Riddled With Lies

Nearly two years later, the inspector general's report vindicates the Nunes memo while showing that the Schiff memo was riddled with lies and false statements.

By Mollie Hemingway
DECEMBER 10, 2019

The new inspector general report on FISA abuse settles the debate between Republicans and Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Both groups put out memos about the Department of Justice’s efforts to secure a warrant to wiretap Carter Page.

At the time of their release, the media praised Democrat Adam Schiff and his memo and vilified Republican Devin Nunes and his memo. Nearly two years later, the inspector general’s report vindicates the Nunes memo while showing that the Schiff memo was riddled with lies and false statements.

The memo from the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee reported:

1 A salacious and unverified dossier formed an essential part of the application to secure a warrant against a Trump campaign affiliate named Carter Page. This application failed to reveal that the dossier was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.

2 The application cited a Yahoo News article extensively. The story did not corroborate the dossier, and the FBI wrongly claimed Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier, was not a source for the story.


3 Nellie Ohr, the wife of a high-ranking Justice Department official, also worked on behalf of the Clinton campaign effort. Her husband Bruce Ohr funneled her research into the Department of Justice. Although he admitted that Steele “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president,” this and the Ohrs’ relationship with the Clinton campaign was concealed from the secret court that grants surveillance warrants.

4 The dossier was “only minimally corroborated” and unverified, according to FBI officials.

All of these things were found to be true by the Inspector General Michael Horowitz in his December 9 report. In fact, Horowitz detailed rampant abuse that went far beyond these four items.

The Democratic minority on the committee, then led by Rep. Adam Schiff, put out a response memo with competing claims:

1 FBI and DOJ officials did not omit material information from the FISA warrant.

2 The DOJ “made only narrow use of information from Steele’s sources about Page’s specific activities in 2016.”

3 In subsequent FISA renewals, DOJ provided additional information that corroborated Steele’s reporting.

4 The Page FISA warrant allowed the FBI to collect “valuable intelligence.”

5 “Far from ‘omitting’ material facts about Steele, as the Majority claims, DOJ repeatedly informed the Court about Steele’s background, credibility, and potential bias.”

6 The FBI conducted a “rigorous process” to vet Steele’s allegations, and the Page FISA application explained the FBI’s reasonable basis for finding Steele credible.


7. Steele’s prior reporting was used in “criminal proceedings.”


Each of these claims were found by Horowitz to be false.
