Top Dem scumbag liar-Nadler Openly Defies 
liar-Pulosi on Impeachment… News Indicates 
She May Have Lost Control
By Joe Setyon  
westernjournal.com } ~ The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to table a resolution brought forward by Democratic Rep. scumbag-Al Green of Texas... that would essentially start impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. The vote was not close — 332 members of Congress voted in favor of tabling the resolution, compared to 95 members who voted “no.” Had the vote to table failed, the articles of impeachment would have been referred to the House Judiciary Committee. No Republicans voted against the motion to table, though 95 Democrats did so. Just one member voted “present.” Notably, House Judiciary Chairman Rep. scumbag liar-Jerrold Nadler of New York was among the Democrats to vote against the motion to table. A spokesperson for scumbag liar-Nadler told CNN’s Jeremy Herb that the congressman supports referring scumbag-Green’s resolution to the Judiciary Committee. scumbag liar-Nadler has previously voted on two separate occasions to kill impeachment resolutions, according to CNN’s Manu Raju. scumbag liar-Nadler’s vote came despite the fact that House Speaker liar-Nancy Pulosi had earlier in the day expressed her opposition to scumbag-Green’s articles of impeachment, as NBC News noted. “We have six committees working on following the facts in terms of any abuse of power, obstruction of justice and the rest that the president may have engaged in,” liar-Pulosi said at a news conference...

In escalating battle with Trump, House votes 
to hold Barr and Ross in contempt
by Susan Ferrechio
washingtonexaminer.com } ~ The House voted to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for failing to provide information and testimony... related to a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The vote was 230 to 198. No Republicans voted for the contempt citation, and four Democrats voted against it. Wednesday's contempt citation will be referred to the Justice Department, where it is highly unlikely a criminal case against the two men will be pursued. The contempt vote serves as a serious rebuke of two top Trump administration officials and further escalates the discord between House Democrats and the Republican-controlled White House. House Democrats have issued dozens of subpoenas to current and former Trump administration officials as part of a sweeping investigation into his presidency, and personal business and lawmakers are pursuing the information in court. Later Wednesday, the House is expected to vote on articles of impeachment against President Trump that were introduced by Rep. scumbag-Al Green, D-Texas. House Republicans voted against the Ross and Barr contempt resolutions. They accused Democrats of wasting valuable floor time on attacking the president for partisan reasons at the expense of addressing more important legislative matters. The House has already voted on a civil contempt charge against Barr earlier this year, and lawmakers spent hours Tuesday debating a resolution condemning recent Trump tweets. The House, meanwhile, has yet to reach a deal on lifting spending caps in order to pass legislation to fund the budget in October, Republicans said...The House dems are refusing to do their duties and address the issue, they rather go after the Trump admin.

Watch Cheney’s Bold Defense of Trump: 
This Isn’t About Race, It’s About 
Socialists Destroying America
By Joe Setyon  
westernjournal.com } ~ Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney blasted a group of freshman progressive lawmakers on Tuesday... arguing that conservatives oppose them not due to their race or gender, but rather because of their socialist policies that “would destroy America.” Cheney’s comments came two days after President Donald Trump became the subject of criticism for a series of tweets Sunday that appeared to take aim at Reps. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, worthless-Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, worthless-Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and worthless-Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. “So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world if they even have a functioning government at all, now loudly and and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run,” the president tweeted Sunday. “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that liar-Nancy Pulosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!” he added. Trump has been roundly criticized by both the lawmakers in question and the establishment media, and many people have referred to his comments as “racist.” Speaking at a news conference Tuesday, Cheney — who serves as chairwoman of the House Republican Caucus — addressed the controversy. While she didn’t appear to mention Trump by name, the content of her remarks made it clear she was defending him — and other conservatives too — from accusations of racism.“I want to talk about what’s gone on over the last few days. I want to make absolutely clear our opposition to our socialist colleagues has absolutely nothing to do with their gender, with their religion or with their race,” she said. “It has to do with the content of their policies.” Cheney went on to cite examples...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib
Blame Speaker liar-Pulosi for
Attacks and Death Threats
By Tommy Christopher
mediaite.com } ~ Progressive Democratic “Squad” members Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. worthless-Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) laid varying degrees of blame for attacks and death threats at Speaker of the House liar-Nancy Pulosi‘s feet... during the group’s first interview since Trump’s racist tweets. On Wednesday morning, CBS aired Gayle King’s extensive interview with commie-Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Rep.  worthless-Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rep. worthless-Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — KAK “The Squad” — that was the congresswomen’s first four-on-one since  Trump’s attacks on the group. Toward the end of the interview, King asked the group if there existed a “fracture” between the Squad and Speaker liar-Pulosi. “I don’t feel a fracture,” Rep. worthless-Omar said, and commie-AOC agreed, saying, “I don’t, I don’t, I think that just as there are members of Congress that did not vote for the speaker on the house floor on the day of our swearing-in, just as there are members who challenge her conclusions, who disagree with her, so do we from time to time.” “But that does not mean that there is a fundamental fracture or a dehumanizing going on within our caucus,” commie-Ocasio-Cortez added. “When you say things like the speaker of the House is being disrespectful to women of the color, is she, according to you, being disrespectful to women of color because of your color, or because she doesn’t like your policies or the tactics that you all are taking to make your point?” King asked. “Right, and I’ll clarify. I did not say that she was disrespectful of women of color,” commie-Ocasio-Cortez said, but added “I found some of the comments disrespectful, and that was my personal opinion. And I did feel that singling out on the basis of one vote was creating an opening.”...  https://www.mediaite.com/tv/watch-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-and-rash...

Apollo 11 at 50

Cal Thomas
 

You had to be there 50 years ago, and I was. As a young reporter for a local TV station in Houston, I frequently visited NASA (“the space base,” we dubbed it), met many of the astronauts and reported on their exploits.

Along with people from around the world, I watched the lunar landing on television, July 20, 1969, fulfilling President Kennedy’s goal of putting a man on the moon by the end of that decade.

A new, three-part PBS documentary, “Chasing the Moon,” recalls the American space program, which followed the Russian launch of the first satellite in 1957. It is a brilliant film, created and directed by Robert Stone, and a useful reminder for the two generations born since then of what a united America can achieve.

CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite makes that point when he says, “It shows what the richest nation in history can do when it puts its mind to it.” If you missed the broadcast, you can find the series at pbs.org.

About Apollo 11, a reporter says, “It is like seeing Columbus sail out of port.”

Jack Lousma, one of the astronauts who followed the original seven, later became a close friend. Lousma was the CAPCOM recipient of the “Houston, we’ve had a problem here” message from Apollo 13 and the pilot for Skylab 3 in 1973. He also commanded the third space shuttle mission in 1982.

I asked for his remembrances of that time and about the legacy of America’s most famous spaceflight.

Lousma said: “Apollo was a bright light, a ray of hope, a force for ‘good’ during the Vietnam War controversy with its riots, civil unrest, demonstrations, violence, turmoil, burning draft cards…

"Unpredictably, Apollo unified the world for a short time. I recall photographs of people in many nations watching TV during the landing … a worldwide sense of ‘oneness’. They were not just ‘watching;’ they seemed part of our team, as if this were a victory for all earthlings, not just for the U.S. We were vicariously representing each one of them. There was a similar response to the drama of Apollo 13.

"It made us proud to be Americans; it set a standard for excellence; it established a baseline for advanced exploration and discovery.”

It wasn’t all ‘The Right Stuff,“ as Tom Wolfe wrote. NASA covered up the extramarital affairs and excessive drinking by many of the earlier astronauts for fear of hurting public confidence in the program.

In her review of Lily Koppel’s book, "The Astronaut Wives Club,” Susannah Cahalan writes in The New York Post: “Out of the 30 astro-marriages – spanning from the first American launched into space in 1961 to the moon landing in 1969 — only seven couples would stay married. … To the outside world, they were perfectly coiffed, apple pie baking housewives. But with their sisters — the AWC — they allowed their armor to fall, the tears to drop, and the truth to come out.”

The debate then, as it has been with other flawed humans who achieved great things, is whether the goal — beating the Russians to the moon — eclipsed those personal flaws. Probably not to the wives, but to the nation, ignorant of their frailties, it did.

One story adds to the many illustrations of the power of fame the astronauts had. On a commercial flight, I sat across the aisle from Annie and John Glenn, he the first American to orbit the Earth and at the time a Democratic senator from Ohio. “Apollo 13” was shown. At the end of the film, passengers approached Glenn for his autograph. I said, “John, you know they don’t want your signature because you’re a senator, right?” He laughed and said, “Don’t I know it?”

In today’s divided nation, it should be more than an exercise in nostalgia to revisit those exciting years when space really was “the final frontier” and America came to lead the way in exploring it.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden On Violence Against Women:   We Have To Keep ‘Punching At It, And Punching At It, And Punching At It’

 The audience laughed as he said this.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said that America needs to be “punching” back to combat violence against women during Wednesday’s Democratic debate.

Biden was asked if he would tackle specific issues regarding the #MeToo movement at the beginning of his presidency, if he were to be elected. The former vice president previously sponsored the 1994 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which aimed to protect victims of domestic violence.

The presidential candidate responded to the question about assaulting women by using the phrase “punching” repeatedly, apparently not thinking about the implications of using such a word.

“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs,” Biden said. “So we have to just change the culture, period, and keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it. No, I really mean it.”

A few people laughed in the audience as he said this.

Biden added that it is important to pass the Violence Against Women Act, which has passed in the House and held up in the Senate. The former Vice President also suggested that America has to “fundamentally change the culture” of how women are treated, noting that it is “everyone’s responsibility.”

“It’s a gigantic issue, and we have to make it clear from the top, from the president on down that we will not tolerate it,” Biden said. “We will not tolerate this culture.”
