by sundance
{ } ~ House Judiciary Chairman scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler has announced the date for the next impeachment hearing. The date is Monday, December 9th – 2019... It appears from the announcement the HJC hearing will be set up to receive the impeachment recommendations from scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee: The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Presentations from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and House Judiciary Committee. Monday December 9th, is also the same date that IG Horowitz is expected to release the results of the 21-month-long FISA investigation. Two days later on Wednesday December 11th, Michael Horowitz will be testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee about his investigation…. Therefore we can expect scumbag liar-Nadler, liar-Pelosi and Lawfare to schedule another House event for Wednesday Dec. 11th.
Devin Nunes Responds To scumbag/liar-Adam 
Schiff “Subpoenaing” Private Phone Records
by sundance
{ } ~ HPSCI Ranking Member Devin Nunes responds to the possibilities of how HPSCI Chairman scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff gained private phone records for use in his impeachment effort... One of the possibilities is that Lev Parnas is a foreign national. SDNY gets a subpoena from the FISA court. Rudy Giuliani is in contact with Parnas (1-hop). They then unmask and pull Giuliani’s records and get Nunes and Solomon (2-hops). The question would then be how did the unmasked information in an active investigation that started in the FISC end up being sent to the House Intel Committee to be disclosed to the public? All fingers point to scumbag/liar-Schiff.  
U.S. Confirms Interception of Iranian 
Weapons, Missiles Destined for Yemen
by Adam Kredo 
{ } ~ Senior U.S. military commanders confirmed on Thursday that an American warship intercepted in November a shipment of Iranian-made weapons and missile components destined for Yemen... where Tehran has been arming terrorist rebel forces. Reports emerged this week of a U.S. interception that occurred late last month, and were confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon by Pentagon officials familiar with the situation. The weapons shipment represents a further escalation by Iran as it seeks to arm anti-American terrorist factions across the Middle East. The weapons and missile parts seized by U.S. military personnel are among the most sophisticated officials have seen. The smuggling operation directly violates a United Nations Security Council resolution.  U.S. military personnel are currently investigating how Tehran is smuggling arms into Yemen and other regional hotspots. "On Nov. 25, a U.S. warship conducted a flag verification boarding in the Arabian sea in accordance with international law of what was subsequently determined to be a stateless vessel, and discovered a cache of weapons and advanced missile components," Cmdr. Sean Robertson, a defense department spokesperson, told the Free Beacon. "An initial investigation indicates that these advanced missile components are of Iranian origin. A more thorough investigation is underway." The topic of Iranian smuggling operations was raised this week at a bilateral meeting in Portugal between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "The first subject that I will raise is Iran, the second subject is Iran, and so is the third, and many more," Netanyahu said on Wednesday before heading into a closed-door meeting with Pompeo. "Iran is increasing its aggression as we speak even today in the region," the Israeli leader said. "They're trying to have staging grounds against us and the region from Iran itself, from Iraq, from Syria, from Lebanon, Gaza, and Yemen, and we are actively engaged in countering that aggression. And I think that the Israeli-American cooperation is key to that effort that I think serves the purposes of the many, many countries in the region. That will be the first subject that I will raise, including the ability to strengthen even further our mutual defenses." Iran has also been caught sending ballistic missiles and other short-range armaments into Iraq in a bid to expand its regional military influence. Tehran's continued expansion across the region has prompted the Trump administration to consider sending another 14,000 American troops into the Middle East to combat the threat.   
U.S. Mulls Withdrawal From Open Skies Treaty
by Adam Kredo 
{ } ~ The Trump administration may withdraw the United States from a treaty with Russia that Moscow uses to conduct surveillance operations across the United States... and has repeatedly violated by denying the United States access to Russian airspace. The Open Skies Treaty, which went into effect in 2002, permits reciprocal unarmed reconnaissance flights by the participants, which include the United States, Russia, and more than 30 European partners. In recent years, the treaty has caused consternation among the highest levels of the U.S. national security community due to Moscow’s repeated and increasingly severe violations, including deploying advanced technology that can be used to conduct espionage operations. Senior administration officials told the Washington Free Beacon that the president is considering pulling out of the treaty due to Moscow's continued noncompliance. The treaty was the subject of a fiery exchange this week between Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Tex.) and Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation Christopher Ford, in which Cruz highlighted a broad consensus among past and present national security officials that Russia exploits the treaty to undermine U.S. national security.  "We are allowing Russia to fly over the United States to engage in reconnaissance on our major cities, our defense infrastructure, New York City, Washington, D.C., we're making ourselves more vulnerable," Cruz said during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee meeting this week. "And we're gaining, as I understand it, little to nothing because everything we would gain from the over flights we gain from our satellite technology, and Russia is not complying with the treaty. How is it possibly in our interest to benefit the Russian military by exposing our defenses while not gaining serious actionable intelligence on the other side?" In October, Cruz and Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) introduced a resolution calling on the United States to withdraw from the treaty. The resolution hints that the treaty enables significant bad behavior from Russia that has not become public for classification reasons, and calls on the administration to declassify some of that information. After the hearing concluded this week, the Trump administration told the Free Beacon that while it has not yet withdrawn from the treaty, the current situation will require corrective action by U.S. allies and Russia to prevent further erosion of American national security interests...   
Valerie Plame Praises Lack of 
Details in Green New Deal
by Cameron Cawthorne 
{ } ~ New Mexico Democratic congressional candidate Valerie Plame on Wednesday praised the Green New Deal for its lack of details... "What I love about the Green New Deal is that it is an aspirational document. It doesn't lay out all the details, and how we get there of course will be contentious, but what I love is the idea it's an inspiration and that's what leadership is about," Plame told liberal podcast host Ana Kasparian during an appearance on "The Young Turks" podcast.  "That's what President John Kennedy did when he said, ‘You know we're going to go to the moon. There's going to be a man on the moon in a decade.' You set that out there and you move toward that," she added. Kasparian later asked Plame about Democratic presidential candidate Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) turning the Green New Deal into actual legislation. "Have you read that legislation? Is it something you are supportive of?" Kasparian asked. "I'm not that familiar to be able to say what parts of it I agree with, but in general the Green New Deal is something that I think makes absolute sense not only for New Mexico, but for the nation as a whole. We have to get off our reliance on fossil fuels," Plame said. commie-Sanders rolled out his $16.3 trillion version of the Green New Deal in August. His plan, which would cost 20 times as much as Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal, calls for the United States to have 100 percent renewable energy by 2030 and entirely decarbonize by 2050. Plame is not the only Democrat who has compared the Green New Deal to a major historical event. Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), who first introduced the Green New Deal resolution in early 2019, compared the fight against climate change to winning World War II. She also compared people who oppose the Green New Deal to white opponents of the civil rights movement. Valerie and commie-Sanders and commie-AOC and the rest are wrong.  
commie-AOC Mocked For Claiming Work Requirements For Food Stamps Would 
Have Starved Her Family
By Rusty Weiss
{ } ~ Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received criticism for claiming her family just might have “starved” if they had to endure new revisions to the food stamp program under the Trump administration... Yea, we don’t get it either. It’s so unlike commie-AOC to completely fabricate stories to make an absurd political point. The USDA on Wednesday finalized the first of a series of tighter restrictions on the Supplemental Nutrition Program (SNAP), limiting states from relaxing steady employment standards for able-bodied adults. “My family relied on food stamps (EBT) when my dad died at 48. I was a student,” the New York socialist claimed. “If this happened then, we might’ve just starved. Now, many people will.” “It’s shameful how the GOP works overtime to create freebies for the rich while dissolving lifelines of those who need it most.” Nay, it’s shameful that A) commie-AOC thinks her constituents would rather milk the system than obtain employment when they’re capable and B) commie-AOC would link her family story to something that wouldn’t even apply in this case. You see, the new rule applies only to childless, able-bodied individuals under the age of 50. The Heritage Foundation quickly called commie-Ocasio-Cortez out for her, um … embellishment. “The rule applies to able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 who do not have dependents,” they wrote. “The rule wouldn’t apply to parents with minor children, the elderly, or disabled people.” This past October, commie-AOC  introduced a set of legislation – six bills in total known as “A Just Society” – which has been  described as a “socialist nightmare” by some. In it, she seeks to take taxpayer money and give it in the form of government benefits to illegal aliens. “Notwithstanding any other provision of law,” her bill reads, “an individual who is an alien without regard to the immigration status of that alien may not be denied any Federal public benefit solely on the basis of the individual’s immigration status.” commie-Ocasio-Cortez would also like to see violent drug felons receive welfare benefits. Beyond that, she doesn’t just want everybody dependent on the government – she wants to create lies and propaganda to convince them that they need to be dependent on government.
The Strategy Behind the Georgia Senate Pick
Nate Jackson:  Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp appointed multimillionaire businesswoman Kelly Loeffler to replace Sen. Johnny Isakson, who is retiring to cope with his declining health. Normally, this sort of story would be worth a headline and a shrug, but this time, it involves the president and some infighting among conservatives.

President Donald Trump met with Gov. Kemp to advocate for his own choice for Isakson’s Senate seat — Rep. Doug Collins. The widely reported narrative is that Kemp “bucked” Trump by picking Loeffler instead. For our part, we suspect there was a good cop/bad cop wink and nod here. In other words, Trump gave Kemp some needed political space.

Collins is a staunch conservative who represents the Ninth District, one of Georgia’s most conservative districts; no one questions his credentials. In fact, he’s currently the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, where his task is to defend Trump against the Democrats’ absurd impeachment inquisition. Collins is needed where he is, but, in part due to his vigorous Trump defense, he’s also arguably less well-suited for a statewide Senate contest next year. The state isn’t as “red” as it used to be, primarily because of women in the Atlanta suburbs. Not only does the Senate pick have to win in 2020, but Kemp has to prove he’s not just “doing Trump’s bidding.”

We believe Kemp (and Trump) had this in mind when picking Loeffler. She is a complete unknown to grassroots Republicans, and many wonder if we’re getting a senatorial version John Roberts — acceptable on the surface but an unreliable “moderate” underneath. After all, Loeffler served on the board of Grady Memorial Hospital, the largest provider of abortions in Georgia. She’s also CEO of Bakkt, a bitcoin-focused company, and part owner of the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream. The WNBA donates to Planned Parenthood and other feminist groups, and Loeffler’s involvement in the WNBA means she’s benefited from the cronyism that funds sports stadiums across the country.

But Kemp’s no dummy, and he’s most certainly not trying to win the approval of the Planned Parenthood Left. In fact, he’s doing his best to keep conservative support. He signed one of the most pro-life laws in the country last year despite the threats of Hollywood, which is heavily invested in the Peach State. Kemp’s stand is all the more remarkable after the previous Republican governor caved to the Rainbow Mafia and vetoed a religious-liberty bill after having promised to sign it.

Kemp stood firm against critics of his yet-to-be-announced Senate pick, too. “I stand with hardworking Georgians and @POTUS,” Kemp tweeted last month. “The idea that I would appoint someone to the U.S. Senate that is NOT pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-freedom, and 100% supportive of our President (and his plan to Keep America Great) is ridiculous.”

Our own Louis DeBroux notes, “The governor has also made some very shrewd appointments in recent months, tapping John King (law-enforcement background) to serve as interim Insurance Commissioner, becoming the first Hispanic constitutional officer in Georgia history. He also appointed the first black woman to serve as Cobb County DA, a county that used to be deep red but that Hillary won in 2016. Through June, about half of the appointments he’d made were women, and almost a quarter were black. Georgia is becoming less white every year, and while we reject the ‘demography is destiny’ mantra of the Democrats, we’d argue that if the GOP doesn’t show that minorities and women are welcomed in the party, not only as voters but as leaders, then Democrats will continue to effectively hammer them as the party of old white men.”

Meanwhile, for all the caterwauling about Kemp “bowing to the Swamp” with his pick, it’s interesting to note that he choose the self-made millionaire who isn’t beholden to any political base and who isn’t currently employed in the Beltway. As Loeffler put it, “I am not a career politician or even someone who’s run for office. Over the last 25 years, I’ve been building businesses, taking risks, and creating jobs. I haven’t spent my life trying to get to Washington.”

As for her conservative bona fides, she says, “But here’s what folks are gonna find out about me: I’m a lifelong conservative. Pro-Second Amendment. Pro-military. Pro-wall. And pro-Trump. And I make no apologies for my conservative values, and will proudly support President Trump’s conservative judges. I am strongly pro-life. The abortion-on-demand agenda is immoral. In the Senate, I look forward to voting for S. 160, Senator Lindsey Graham’s 20-week abortion ban. When it comes to protecting innocent life, I look to God because every life is a blessing. In Washington, I will work with President Trump to continue the incredible economic progress our nation has seen.”

Obviously, Loeffler’s actual track record has yet to be established and there are indeed questions — if not outright flags — about what we do know, but she checked a lot of the right boxes with her remarks. “As an outsider to Washington, I know I will have to prove it,” she admitted. “To earn your confidence and support, with my votes, my priorities, and my actions. And that’s exactly what I’ll do.” As long as that’s the case, the controversy surrounding her pick will soon be a distant memory.
