Clinton was impeached for perjury in a civil action taken by a subordinate of his in Arkansas. The lie was to hide the fact that he had a subordinate polishing his pole in the Oval Orificei. Perjury is a real crime.

He also lost his ability to practice law in the aftermath, but the judge, a Clinton appointee, gave him a break by not disbarring him until after the Senate decided not to remove him from office.

Walt

Sorry Emery, what you "feel" isn't evidence.
Still, your and yours have nothing on Trump.

But let the steaming pile of Schiff keep this game up. Every hearing will expose the LIBs for what they are.

Speaking of Clinton, Hey Emery? can you tell us what the definition of "is",is?

Todd Juvinall

Biden, Joe, forced an illegal "quid pro quo" on the Ukraine Paul Emery. Where have you been? And it is illegal to use your public office to coerce a person or in this case, a country, to enrich yourself or a relative. Perhaps you need to review the California State laws in this regard.

Walt

Todd. Emery will just say it's perfectly fine on the FED level. As long as it's a Democrat.

Paul Emery

In other news today the Public News Service today reported that California has record voter Registration with 20.3 million voters. The largest Block is Democrats followed by No Party Preference followed by the poor ol' Republicans. Sad Scenario in Cal if you are a Republican. My goodness-third place.

From Americas Paper of Record……………….


Capitol Building To Be Decorated As Giant Circus Tent For Duration Of Impeachment Hearings


WASHINGTON, D.C.—In honor of the impeachment hearings beginning this week, the Capitol Building has been decorated to look like a giant circus tent.

As soon as congressional maintenance staff heard that the impeachment hearings were going to begin, they went into storage and got out "the Big Top," also used during the Kavanaugh hearings last year.

"We keep the Big Top on hand for certain situations," said one staff member. "Usually these big inquisition-style trials, that kind of thing. They're great entertainment. And the kids love the monkeys."

Congressional vendors will be selling peanuts, popcorn, programs, and those big foam fingers to enhance viewers' experience.

Rep. Adam Schiff was furious with the changes, saying they make a mockery out of a serious show trial.

"These are serious proceedings, and we will not have them mocked!" Schiff cried, wearing a clown nose, riding an elephant, and juggling fourteen flaming bowling pins. "The American public needs to know how super serious we are about this."


Thats a fact……kids do love monkeys……..!

Paul Emery

Can you offer some proof about the "millions" of illegal immigrants voting Todd or did you make it up?

Walt

What the hell was Emery watching? Schiff wound up looking like an idiot.
Better get those meds checked Emery. Dementia is working overtime.

George Rebane

Well here’s a sorely needed hit for the House; today they held a hearing the outcome of which pleased literally everyone involved with the impeachment circus. It’s not often that such contentious affairs wind up making both sides smile and asking for more of the same.

Walt

This part Emery?
“So, in this impeachment hearing today where we impeach presidents for treason or bribery or other high crimes, where is the impeachable offense in that call?” asked Rep. Ratcliffe of Taylor and Kent.

“Are either of you here today to assert there was an impeachable offense in that call?” added Ratcliffe.

The representative spoke to Taylor and Kent during the House Intelligence Committee’s inaugural public hearing of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump on Wednesday.

Both bureaucrats responded by saying nothing, creating a moment of deafening silence in the room.
“Shout it out. Anyone?” probed Ratcliffe during the moment of silence. "

And as far as Biden's corrupt intent, the smoking gun, besides Hunter's $50k a month job in the corrupt Ukraine when Dad was running the US show is a good place to start... how about asking Ukraine to investigate the place Hunter B was "working"?

If the House can "investigate" the President for evidence of a crime they can't name... why not the son of a VP who was getting $600k a year for being... his father's son when his father was running the US sh*tshow in Ukraine?

Walt

Yes Emery,, "REAL BAD for Repubs"...
"The impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump backfired on congressional Democrats Wednesday, when a star witness inadvertently made the case that Hunter Biden’s wheeling and dealing in Ukraine should be investigated.
Testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on the opening day of the inquiry, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent admitted that U.S. officials had been urging the Ukrainian government for some time to explain why an investigation into Burisma Holdings, the eastern European oil and gas company that employed Hunter Biden on its board of directors, was shut down.

“We’ve continued to press Ukrainian officials to answer for why allege corrupt prosecutors had closed [the] case,” Kent said. “We have until now got an unsatisfactory answer.”

I followed your link Gregory and the article was from 2015 and it bases it's conclusions on some unnamed poll. Do you find that to be an acceptable source and worth linking to? Do you consider this to be factual information?

Reads like this:

"June 3, 2015 By Stephen Frank

As we always knew, California and American elections are filled with fraud and corruption. Thanks to a new poll, we now know that approximately 13% of illegal aliens vote. Since they are already criminals, stealing ID’s or using phony ID’s. lie to get welfare, steal jobs—why not vote as they to lose. Since they can not be deported or jailed, they have nothing to lose. Obama is protecting these law breakers."

"Jawaid Bazyar is fighting a decision by the City of Denver to fine his business for refusing to clean poop from an adjacent alley.
The local internet service provider CEO is taking the city to court after being fined for not cleaning up the leavings of the local homeless population from his property. “If the city’s not going to enforce laws against trespassing, or camping, or public defecation and just make me bear the cost of these problems, that’s just not right,” Bazyar told CBS Denver.

“There’s food, trash, drug deals,” Bazyar said. “In the alley, we get the defecation, drug needles.” Bazyar is concerned about the health and safety of both him and his employees. “It’s a bio-hazard. It could be infectious. I didn’t hire these people to clean poop off the ground. I can’t, as an employer, just say, ‘Go and clean up the feces,’” he explained."

The Democrats’ impeachment farce is intended to smear President Trump, in part because that party’s leaders know they don’t have a decent candidate to run against him next year. This is why Congressional Republicans prominently displayed a quote from Rep. Al Green at today’s sham hearing:

“I’m concerned if we don’t impeach this President, he will get re-elected.” Unimpeachable logic.

Those mutha mullahs think we are stupid, gotcha! -

"The agency has detected natural uranium particles of anthropogenic origin at a location in Iran not declared to the agency," the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN's nuclear watchdog, said in a confidential report published Monday, according to AFP.

The particles had been mined and had undergone initial processing, but not enriched, AFP reported.
The report did not name the facility that had been producing the particles, the BBC and AFP reported. However, anonymous diplomatic sources told AFP that the samples had been taken from a facility in Tehran's southwest Turquzabad district.

Iran has previously claimed that the Turquzabad site is a carpet cleaning factory that has no other purpose.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has repeatedly warned about Iran's undeclared nuclear archives, told the UN last year that the Turquzabad site contained "a secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and material from Iran's secret nuclear weapons program."

Aha. Just as predicted. Schifflips publically changing his strategy....well, at least showing the next card which always been the strategy. Kavanaugh hearing, deja vu. If it bombs, move on to Plan B and then Plan C. Get that asterisk in the record books by Kavanaugh’s name....er.....by Trump’s name. Claim a moral victory for Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

“In making the case for alleged “bribery” by Trump, Schiff first argued for the Constitution’s “broader” definition of the term.

“Bribery, first of all, as the founders understood bribery, it was not as we understand it in law today. It was much broader,” he said, as reported by NPR. “It connoted the breach of the public trust in a way where you’re offering official acts for some personal or political reason, not in the nation’s interest.”

“All the Democrats need to do to make the case for bribery, Schiff claimed, is to show that Trump was “soliciting something of value,” a broad definition indeed. Multiple witnesses who have spoken with the committee behind closed doors, Schiff told NPR’s Steve Inskeep, have presented evidence that Trump was trying to “solicit something of value.”

That Trump failed to do so, Schiff maintained, is beside the point. Trump’s request for Ukraine to “look into” the corruption allegations agains the Bidens, the subsequent actions of officials working on Trump’s behalf to try to make sure the investigation was conducted, and the temporary withholding of $391 in U.S. military aide is enough to impeach the president, he suggested.“

That the military aide was given to Ukraine without the country ever conducting an investigation into the Bidens is neither here nor there, Schiff argued.

“I mean, when you consider the serious terms of whether the president has committed an impeachable offense, the fact that the scheme was discovered, the fact that the scheme was unsuccessful, doesn’t make it any less odious or any less impeachable,” said the Democratic congressman. “If the president solicited for help in the U.S. election, if the president conditioned official acts on the performance of these political favors, whether Ukraine ever had to go through with it really doesn’t matter. What matters is: Did the president attempt to commit acts that ought to result in his removal from office?”

While Schiff acknowledged that it was unlikely that the Senate would impeach Trump, as it requires a two-thirds majority vote, he defended the House Democrats’ resolve to see the process through. Impeachment, he argued, is “the most powerful sanction the House has,” and if it “deters further presidential misconduct, then it may provide some remedy even in the absence of a conviction in the Senate.”

Schiff for brains even lost the Clinton news network today! -

Following the hearing, CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin suggested that the vocal observation from Trump's defenders was "legitimate."

"The one criticism of these two witnesses, which I think is very much legitimate -- it's not really a criticism, it's a factual statement, is that neither of them had direct contact with the president," Toobin said.

"Ever," CNN anchor Jake Tapper stressed.

"Ever," Toobin responded. "And, that's a problem if you're going to impeach the president."

Punchy doesn't have any evidence that the pollster in this case has ever lied... it's just dismissable without thought... because it's a "vanity poll" and one number among many was 13 percent non-citizen voting.

IF there are 20 million illegals, that would be 2.6 million illegal voters as an estimate. If the polling org got it wrong and it was instead just one percent, it would be 200,000 illegal voters. My sense is it's probably somewhere inbetween.

I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the New York Times

“By now, you've already heard about the maladroit attempt to suppress the fact that Senator Elizabeth Warren lies about her personal backstory.

These are some of the worst examples. But nearly every day, the steady paper subtly tries to save the Times from itself. For example, we nearly published a two-star review of Lin Manuel Miranda's rather mediocre Hamilton.

Don't get me wrong. There have been bright spots in the last few years. Ken Vogel's coverage of Hunter Biden's corruption has been top notch. But even these journalistic triumphs have come with a cost. Vogel was almost featured in a New York Times Magazine cover story on Journalists Enabling Trumpism.

We hope that the Times will rediscover its mission of performing excellent and fearless journalism after the Trump presidency ends in 2025. Until then, please know that there are still editors and reporters at the old gray lady who put paper first.”

Breaking the wrong ground. Turnabout is fair play, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Remember Harry Reid’s short sighted ‘Nuclear Option’?

On the use of impeachment as an election strategy

“Second, it further appears that a president cannot even confirm a cabinet unless he or she has a partisan majority in the Senate. Democrats established this precedent by voting in unison against President Trump’s cabinet nominees, with the exception of Secretary of Defense Mattis, who won a near-unanimous vote. Democrats in the Senate voted almost unanimously against Jeff Sessions (Attorney General), Mike Pompeo (Director of Central Intelligence), Rex Tillerson (Secretary of State), Betsy DeVos (Education), Steven Mnuchin (Treasury), Mike Mulvaney (Office of Management and Budget), and Scott Pruitt (Environmental Protection Agency). William Barr was subsequently confirmed as Attorney General in 2019 by a vote of 54 to 45, with but four Democrats voting in his favor. If Republicans did not have a majority, they would not have been able to confirm any of President Trump’s nominations (with the exception of Gen. Mattis).

What do Democrats think is going to happen when they elect a president, but fail to carry a majority in the Senate? Republicans will undoubtedly behave in that situation just as Democrats have acted in relation to President Trump: they will veto his cabinet nominations, or delay them indefinitely to keep the incumbent president from forming a working government. That, after all, is what Democrats hoped to do to President Trump—and they are still doing it. Turnabout is fair play, and in politics is often necessary to deter adversaries from “upping the ante” by adopting more extreme tactics of attack. Looking ahead, there is little chance, for example, that Republicans will vote in the future to confirm a Democratic nominee for Attorney General, just as Democrats tried to block Sessions and Barr (and John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales before them). By contrast, Eric Holder, President Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, and a highly partisan figure, was confirmed by a comfortable bi-partisan vote.

It is unlikely that Republicans will be quite so generous in regard to future nominations for Attorney General, in view of the manner in which Democrats treated Sessions and Barr. That will be the case also in regard to other sensitive policymaking positions—such as the head of the epa or director of the cia. In this way the United States is moving toward a bastardized form of parliamentary government, in that the President must have a majority in the Senate to conduct the business of government and the other party is no longer the opposition party (putting forth alternative policies) but is rather the “obstructionist” party.”..............................

“Fifth, and finally, Democrats have now turned impeachment into a partisan electoral strategy which, if successful, will establish a precedent for future investigations to come. This is the kind of stratagem that is bound to come back to haunt Democrats whenever they elect a president and do not have a majority in the House of Representatives. What is to stop Republicans from impeaching an incumbent Democrat on a partisan vote in the hope that it will strengthen the hand of the Republican candidate in a forthcoming election? This is, in effect, what Democrats are proposing to do today. Democrats assume Republicans would never do such a thing. They are wrong. Impeachment, far from being rare, is about to become a commonplace event as an instrument of campaign strategy and partisan warfare. Every president going forward, when facing a hostile Congress, will face the threat of impeachment, since Democrats are proving today that it is not difficult to concoct a case if there is a determination to find one. In that situation, Americans might as well forget about Washington as a place where important problems are addressed on behalf of the public.“

Money Quote:

“The U.S. political system is heading at breakneck speed toward some kind of crisis in which partisan warfare overwhelms the capacity of the president and congress to address national problems, as they once used to do in an era of greater national consensus. Judicial and cabinet appointments, the budget, international interests, and now impeachment have been turned into occasions for party warfare. It appears that today the two parties represent different countries, rather than different coalitions of Americans, and thus must negotiate with one another as heads of state negotiate with adversary nations.”

Poor Emery. Not much of a "sparring partner" when all you do is rabbit punch, then run to the corner and hide under the towel.
HELL.. You can't even land a sucker punch.

Student govt. at Harvard votes to condemn student newspaper for asking ICE for a comment

On Sunday, the Harvard student government voted to condemn the school's daily student newspaper, The Harvard Crimson, after the newspaper asked the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for a comment about an anti-ICE protest in September on the school campus.

The story: Over 900 people and several student groups like the Harvard College Democrats have signed a petition calling for the newspaper to "apologize for the harm they inflicted on the undocumented community," "stop calling ICE," and "declare their commitment to protecting undocumented students on campus."

“In this political climate, a request for comment is virtually the same as tipping them off, regardless of how they are contacted,” the petition stated. On Sept. 12, students gathered for a protest organized by the student group Act on a Dream in Harvard Yard to call for the termination of ICE, according to Fox News.

After the event, the Harvard Crimson requested a comment from ICE about the protest for an upcoming story. The newspaper defended its decision to seek comment from ICE, saying in a note to readers that it follows “a commonly accepted set of journalistic standards.”

Hmm. .....it follows “a commonly accepted set of journalistic standards.” Oh, that was then, this is now. Have you seen the journalistic standards lately?

Thanks for the Bright Brat slant on things...

I guess you missed George's admonition to you to try to find actual news sources...

Walt

Yet you have nothing El Gordo.
Now back to liar LIB news and produce some real evidence against Trump. Opinion is not evidence.

George Rebane

CarlosC 420pm - You’d get a lot more traction with such comments if you or yours would just document a couple of errors or ‘fake news’ items that outlets you don’t like put out.

OK Emery!! Now your chance to run Nevada City!! You claim to know better than all of us,, PROVE IT!!
https://www.theunion.com/news/nevada-city-mayor-to-face-possible-sanction-removal/
"Nevada City Mayor Reinette Senum will face possible sanction or removal during the next council meeting, Dec. 10, after council member Erin Minett brought the motion forward and the council approved discussion of possible censure.

Minett said she is concerned, and received similar complaints from constituents, about the mayor “not clarifying that the opinion she expressed regarding multiple city matters are her own and that she was not speaking on behalf of the city or the City Council.” "

We don't need no stinkin' rules say the jihadi congressional delegation -

But Tlaib's campaign committee, Rashida Tlaib for Congress, allegedly "reported campaign disbursements that may not be legitimate and verifiable campaign expenditures attributable to bona fide campaign or political purposes," according to a release from OCE that unanimously recommended the Ethics Committee investigate Tlaib.

If Tlaib "converted campaign funds from Rashida Tlaib for Congress to personal use, or if Tlaib’s campaign committee expended funds that were not attributable to bona fide campaign or political purposes, then Tlaib may have violated House rules, standards of conduct, and federal law," the OCE continued.

"The Board recommends that the Committee further review the above allegation concerning Rep. Tlaib because there is substantial reason to believe that Rep. Tlaib converted campaign funds from Rashida Tlaib for Congress to personal use or Rep. Tlaib’s campaign committee expended funds that were not attributable to bona fide campaign or political purposes," it said.

Ouch even the washpo hates it -

"The author claimed to be part of a group fighting for America’s democratic while 'thwarting Mr. Trump's more misguided impulses,' but readers did not learn what sort of work the anonymous writer did or what, if anything, had been thwarted," Lozada wrote of the op-ed. "However accurate and sobering such characterizations may be, they all belong in a folder labeled Stuff We Already Know. Unfortunately, much of 'A Warning' reads like a longer version of the op-ed, purposely vague and avoiding big revelations in order to preserve the author’s anonymity."

Lozada said he would stop short of calling the author "cowardly" for holding onto anonymity despite the numerous civil servants set to testify as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry. Still, he labeled the anti-Trump White House official "self-defeating."
