The Swamp’s Swingline Stapler

In December 2008, Barack Obama summarily fired every ambassador appointed by George W Bush. The media did not care for four reasons. First, it was Barack Obama. Second, they recognized that the president controls the executive branch. Third, it was a parting shiv to Bush. Finally, it was Barack Obama. Whether any of the ousted

Impeachment Inquiry Is Bad . . . for Biden

Amid the consensus that Wednesday’s congressional testimony by the Beltway version of the Duke brothers (that’s a “Trading Places” reference, millennials) fell flat without any “pizazz,” Democrats undoubtedly are scrambling to create some fireworks next week. House Intelligence Committee chairman and Hollywood wannabe-screenwriter Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) must be channeling his inner creative genius to fabricate

Inside the ‘War’ on Biden-Ukraine Reporting

House Republicans want to hear from Alexandra Chalupa. If you are unfamiliar with Chalupa, let’s just say this: She is the Ukrainian version of Christopher Steele. A paid political operative for the Democratic National Committee, Chalupa leveraged her government contacts in Ukraine (she’s Ukrainian-American) to dig up Russian dirt on Team Trump in 2016 for

The Anonymous Coup

Impeachment, we are reminded by our betters, is a political process, not a criminal trial. The president does not need to be accused of violating a specific law; evidence is whatever the House of Representatives wants it to be. The credibility of any witness, especially one wearing the uniform of the United States military, cannot

Looking for Fame and Fortune? Become a Coup Plotter

During the screening of a new film about the 2016 presidential election, one celebrity earned a standing ovation from the Hollywood crowd: Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and top Trump antagonist now tasked with impeaching the president. In a side-splitting puff piece published in the New York Times over the

The Impeachment Schiff Show

After preparing a failed bill of particulars against the president—Russian election collusion, porn star payoffs, income tax evasion, obstruction of justice, the Emoluments Clause, the 25th Amendment, the Charlottesville rally, the two Michaels (Avenatti and Cohen), Deutsche Bank, Alfa-Bank, and Orange Man Bad—Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) finally has Trump dead-to-rights: A quid pro quo without

Obama Successfully Hunted Trump Campaign Aides Instead of Terrorists

The weekend raid that resulted in the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was named after Kayla Mueller, an American aid worker killed in Syria in 2015 while being held captive by the sadistic ISIS leader. During his Sunday morning announcement from the White House, President Trump twice invoked Mueller’s name in addition to the names

Who Will Fall First: Trump or the ‘Praetorian Guard’?

Attorney General William Barr has suggested that top officials in the Obama Administration behaved like a “Praetorian Guard” in their unprecedented and possibly criminal investigation into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. “Republics have fallen because of a Praetorian Guard mentality where government officials get very arrogant, they identify the national interest with their own political preferences

Where’s Lindsey?

As Republicans watch House Democrats run roughshod over House rules and the Constitution with their secret impeachment tribunal, the party’s rank-and-file grows increasingly frustrated by the inaction of the Republican-controlled Senate. Most of the criticism is aimed at part-time senator and perpetual Fox News guest Lindsey Graham; the South Carolina Republican is the chairman of

Everyone Knows a Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney is that guy. The kid who made the team because his parents donated big dough to the school but gives footwork advice to the other legit athletes. The fraternity brother who wore khakis to keg parties and drank Bartles and Jaymes out of a solo cup but pretended it was beer. The office
