From @HolmanJenkins : “U.S. emissions are just 14% of the to­tal and shrink­ing. In­dia and China, not the U.S., will de­ter­mine the fate of cli­mate change.”

That’s because the investigation that led to it was done by Independent Counsel Starr, which took several years. In this case, there was no such investigation so the inquiry started with the Pelosi announcement less than 11 weeks ago. The comparison made below is apples & oranges

@peterbakernyt  Peter, if the impeachment is based on facts adduced in an already completed investigation, it makes no sense to compare it to one where the impeachment inquiry starts basically from scratch, which is what happened here.

It will be interesting to see which other media, if any, have anything to say about what Schiff did here, especially after all the MSM hand-wringing about Bush’s national security surveillance.

From @DanHenninger  “The truth is that the De­mo­c­ra­tic left and the me­dia—the re­sis-tance—are what uni­fied the Re­pub­li­can Party. They nor­mal­ized Trumpian chaos with two years of the Russ­ian col­lu­sion nar­ra­tive and Robert Mueller.”

Because, you see, journalists are not simply to report the news without fear or favor. Their mission instead is to convince the public that the president should be impeached and removed. Good lord.

“Impeachment...doesn’t work — the threshold for launching impeachment proceedings is low enough that it can be done frivolously, for merely partisan purposes. But the threshold for removing a president from office is so high that it has never been met.”

From @KimStrassel : The abuse of power most media are ignoring.

Who knew a year ago that health care would prove a toxic issue to candidates on the left?

In which @JonathanTurley ⁩ tries to correct gross misrepresentations of his views and testimony by Democrats and their media allies.


Difference between Mike Bloomberg and Elizabeth Warren/Bernie Sanders is that Bloomberg is trying to buy the election with his money and Warren/Sanders are trying to buy it with yours.

When I first saw this I thought he couldn’t have said it. But he did. He wants to take money from the poor for their own good.

Adam Schiff keeps saying the whistleblower has a “statutory right to anonymity.” He said it again this morning. It is nonsense. Only the IC official who receives a whistleblower complaint is required to withhold the name, and not in all circumstances.

This smear was disgusting the first time around. This attempt to revive it is beyond disgusting and speaks to the dishonesty of leading organs of the mainstream media. They are corrupt.

Both Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren said on Twitter Friday that Michael Brown was “murdered” by a “white” policeman in Ferguson, Mo. This is an absolute whopper and obviously does nothing to calm racial tension in this country. Yet it’s gotten almost no coverage.

Current media terminology: Looking into Trump = investigating. Looking into Biden = dirt digging.

From the article: “The authors omit the fact that the alleged victim has no memory of the alleged incident.”

This is from Elizabeth Warren’s registration for the Texas Bar, filled out in her own hand and calling herself “American Indian.” She has insisted she never used that identity to “get ahead.” You decide.
