Radical Leftist Dem Minneapolis Mayor, Jacob Frey, Fails to HALT Trump Rally!

Minneapolis mayor attempts to toy with Trump, gets fingers burned

.

We’re getting an indication of what next year’s campaign will be like thanks to radical mayor Jacob Frey of Minneapolis.  According to the Donald Trump for President campaign, Frey is abusing the powers of his office in an attempt to shut down a MAGA rally:

The radical leftist mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, is abusing the power of his office and attempting to extort President Trump’s re-election campaign by conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security in an effort to block a scheduled Keep America Great rally. Democrat Mayor Frey is using the bogus security charges to pressure the Target Center, site of the contracted October 10, 2019 rally, into preventing Minnesota residents from exercising their First Amendment rights in support of President Trump.

The Frey administration told the Target Center that it was responsible for security costs of $530,000, and the center tried to bill these to the Trump campaign, “under threat of withholding the use of the arena,” which, needless to say, was the point of the whole exercise.  The actual cost is closer to $20,000, with the bulk of security provided by the Secret Service.

The Trump campaign responded by informing the Target Center that it was flirting with a breach of contract, with the inevitable lawsuit following.  The rally remains on schedule.

As might be expected of an organization associated with Donald Trump, the campaign pulled no punches in its response:

“This is an outrageous abuse of power by a liberal mayor trying to deny the rights of his own city’s residents just because he hates the President,” said Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. “People want to hear from their President, and no mayor looking to beef up his resume for a run for higher office should stand in the way.”

This censorship through bureaucratic nitpicking has become a standard weapon of the Left across the country in recent years.  We’ll see how well it stands up to the Trump blowtorch in 2020.

President Dumps Fascistic Dem’s Impeachment Farce

TRUMP REFUSES TO PARTICIPATE IN IMPEACHMENT FARCE

by  John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

Today, President Trump’s White House Counsel, Pat Cipollone, directed an eight-page letter to Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, et al., declining on behalf of President Trump to participate in the Democrats’ sham impeachment proceeding. The letter, embedded below, is excellent. Some would say, brilliant. It attacks the Democrats’ constitutionally defective and politically motivated proceeding at its root. You should read it all. This is the letter’s introduction:

I write on behalf of President Donald J. Trump in response to your numerous, legally unsupported demands made as part of what you have labeled–contrary to the Constitution of the United States and all past bipartisan precedent–as an “impeachment inquiry.” As you know, you have designed and implemented your inquiry in a maimer that violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process.

For example, you have denied the President the right to cross-examine witnesses, to call witnesses, to receive transcripts of testimony, to have access to evidence, to have counsel present, and many other basic rights guaranteed to all Americans. You have conducted your proceedings in secret. You have violated civil liberties and the separation of powers by threatening Executive Branch officials, claiming that you will seek to punish those who exercise fundamental constitutional rights and prerogatives. All of this violates the Constitution, the rule of law, and every past precedent. Never before in our history has the House of Representatives–under the control of either political party–taken the American people down the dangerous path you seem determined to pursue.

Put simply, you seek to overturn the results of the 2016 election and deprive the American people of the President they have freely chosen. Many Democrats now apparently view impeachment not only as a means to undo the democratic results of the last election, but as a strategy to influence the next election, which is barely more than a year away. As one member of Congress explained, he is “concerned that ifwe don’t impeach the President, he will get reelected.”1 Your highly partisan and unconstitutional effort threatens grave and lasting damage to our democratic institutions, to our system of free elections, and to the American people.

For his part, President Trump took the unprecedented step of providing the public transparency by declassifying and releasing the record of his call with President Zelenskyy of Ukraine. The record clearly established that the call was completely appropriate and that there is no basis for your inquiry. The fact that there was nothing wrong with the call was also powerfully confirmed by Chairman Schiff’s decision to create a false version of the call and read it to the American people at a congressional hearing, without disclosing that he was simply making it all up.

In addition, information has recently come to light that the whistleblower had contact with Chairman Schiff’s office before filing the complaint. His initial denial of such contact caused The Washington Post to conclude that Chairman Schiff “clearly made a statement that was false.”2 In any event, the American people understand that Chairman Schiff cannot covertly assist with the submission of a complaint, mislead the public about his involvement, read a counterfeit version of the call to the American people, and then pretend to sit in judgment as a neutral “investigator.”

For these reasons, President Trump and his Administration reject your baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process. Your unprecedented actions have left the President with no choice. In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the Presidency, President Trump and his Administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.

Well said! There is lots more good stuff, some of a more technical nature. Here are just a few more paragraphs:

The Committees’ inquity also suffers from a separate, fatal defect. Despite Speaker Pelosi’s commitment to “treat the President with fairness,”6 the Committees have not established any procedures affording the President even the most basic protections demanded by due process under the Constitution and by fundamental fairness. Chairman Nadler of the House Judiciary Committee has expressly acknowledged, at least when the President was a member of his own party, that “[t]he power of impeachment … demands a rigorous level of due process,” and that in this context “due process mean[s] … the right to be informed of the law, of the charges against you, the right to confront the witnesses against you, to call your own witnesses, and to have the assistance of counsel.”7 All of these procedures have been abandoned here.
***
It is transparent that you have resorted to such unprecedented and unconstitutional procedures because you know that a fair process would expose the lack of any basis for your inquiry. Your current effort is founded on a completely appropriate call on July 25,2019, between President Trump and President Zelenskyy of Ukraine. Without waiting to see what was actually said on the call, a press conference was held announcing an “impeachment inquiry” based on falsehoods and misinformation about the call.21 To rebut those falsehoods, and to provide transparency to the American people, President Trump secured agreement from the Government of Ukraine and took the extraordinary step of declassifying and publicly releasing the record of the call. That record clearly established that the call was completely appropriate, that the President did nothing wrong, and that there is no basis for an impeachment inquiry. At a joint press conference shortly after the call’s public release, President Zelenskyy agreed that the call was appropriate.22 In addition, the Department of Justice announced that officials there had reviewed the call after a referral for an alleged campaign finance law violation and found no such violation.23

Perhaps the best evidence that there was no wrongdoing on the call is the fact that, after the actual record of the call was released, Chairman Schiff chose to concoct a false version of the call and to read his made-up transcript to the American people at a public hearing.24 This powerfully confirms there is no issue with the actual call. Otherwise, why would Chairman Schiff feel the need to make up his own version? The Chairman’s action only further undermines the public’s confidence in the fairness of any inquiry before his Committee.
***
For the foregoing reasons, the President cannot allow your constitutionally illegitimate proceedings to distract him and those in the Executive Branch from their work on behalf of the American people. The President has a country to lead. The American people elected him to do this job, and he remains focused on fulfilling his promises to the American people. He has important work that he must continue on their behalf, both at home and around the world, including continuing strong economic growth, extending historically low levels of unemployment, negotiating trade deals, fixing our broken immigration system, lowering prescription drug prices, and addressing mass shooting violence. We hope that, in light of the many deficiencies we have identified in your proceedings, you will abandon the current invalid efforts to pursue an impeachment inquiry and join the President in focusing on the many important goals that matter to the American people.

The Democrats won’t do that, of course. They care only about power, and are determined to bully their way back into the White House in 2020.

Finally, a personal note: in 2010, I tried a $200 million case against Pat Cipollone in Denver. He is a good, tough lawyer. I am glad that he is now putting his talents to use on behalf of President Trump as White House Counsel.

 

Trump Refuses to Participate in Impeachment Farce

Dems’ Chronic Liar Schiff Sells Their Derangement

On Impeachment, Democrats Have Schiff For Brains

On Impeachment, Democrats Have Schiff For Brains

 

All the Democrats have to do is act sane, for a little while, to have a chance at holding the House and winning the Senate and White House. It’s not a tall order – don’t be a drooling fool arguing with a mailbox and you have an even shot at winning in 2020. For Democrats, even if that bar were so low it was buried, it wouldn’t be low enough for them to clear. As if they wanted to drive home the idea that impeachment is a tumor made of Trump Derangement Syndrome, they’ve chosen to make Congressman Adam Schiff the face of it all.

Schiff is the type of Congressman who would be marginalized to the point of irrelevancy if Democrats hadn’t metastasized into the media. His lies are constant, many of them are childish in nature. But mostly they’re obvious.

Every lie that perfectly fit the liberal narrative about President Trump, even if it didn’t originate with him, has passed through Schiff’s lips. No Democrat with a press credential questions his words anymore and he won’t go anywhere near where the few honest journalists who might. Even the awarding of four Pinocchios this week by the Washington Post has impacted his ability to lie.

The four Pinocchios, by the way, were for saying he and his staff had not spoken with the so-called whistleblower when they had, and he knew it. That is a blatant lie, not a misstatement, misremembering, or oversight: a lie. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was awarded four “for repeatedly hiding the truth” that he was on the call. That “hiding” consisted of not volunteering that fact to reporters asking about the whistleblower complaint which he’d not read at the time he was asked.

Pompeo wasn’t asked if he was on the call and he gets the same verdict as Schiff. It’s good to be a Democrat.

To illustrate just how good it is to be a Democrat, Schiff was even defended by one of the “reporters” he lied to on national television.

The Daily Beast is about as much of a journalistic outfit as MSNBC, which is why the Beast’s politics editor, Sam Stein, is also on the MSNBC payroll as a Morning Joe regular. Schiff lied directly to Stein about his office’s contact with the whistleblower, saying his office has not spoken with the registered Democrat. When the truth came out, likely leaked by Schiff’s office to the New York Times to get the best possible spin on it (and it really was a gentle story considering), Stein downplayed Schiff’s lie.

“Schiff did appear to lie,” Stein tweeted. Then he accused people being bothered by Schiff’s lie of being “a hack.” The next day he wrote a slobbering kiss of a story entitled, “Trump’s plan to save his presidency: take a hatchet to Adam Schiff.” In it, Stein quotes Schiff as saying “I regret I wasn’t much more clear.” He was crystal clear, there is the truth and he knowingly said the opposite of it. Stein the referred to this lie as “nuance.”

Again, it’s good to be a Democrat.

Schiff didn’t even have to ask. Every liberal outlet snapped to his defense. Going on the word of an admitted liar, NBC declared there was zero evidence Schiff or his staff had any hand in drafting the complaint and reaching out exclusively to one of the most partisan Democrats in the Russian witch hunt was “routine.” Were journalists honest people themselves they’d be embarrassed.

Now we have reports of a possible second whistleblower considering filing their own complaint about the same non-event call. The reason they’re considering this is to obtain the legal protections that come with whistleblower status. This person is allegedly closer to the call, which means they’re one of the people who illegally leaked it to the original whistleblower. That would be an illegal leak of classified material, which makes this an attempt by this second person to protect themselves from the consequences of breaking the law to start this hoax in the first place. It also stinks of Adam Schiff-advised strategy. Can’t wait for the New York Times story on that in a couple of weeks; wonder how they’ll spin this one.

 

From his constant declarations of “proof of collusion” to his denials of any knowledge of the whistleblower before Congress was notified, Adam Schiff has a history of not only of lying, but of being caught doing so. Yet he has been chosen by Nancy Pelosi to be the face of impeachment: a dishonest man chosen to make a dishonest case to the American people. It’s like OJ Simpson being asked to give the keynote address at a marriage counseling seminar.

It’s a testament to just how weak the case is that they’ve chosen someone with a shameless willingness to tell the public that up is down, that wet is dry, to be the mastermind of impeachment. That Adam Schiff is the one coordinating this attempted coup shows just how crazy Democrats are; that they lost that argument with the mailbox. That ultimately, the Democratic Party has Schiff for brains.

Fascistics at CNN in Over Drive to Keep Creepy Dem Bidens ‘Clean Enough’

THE AD THAT CNN WOULDN’T RUN

by  John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

CNN refused to run this Trump ad on the Biden Ukraine scandal. Why?

“CNN is rejecting the ad, as it does not meet our advertising standards,” a network spokesperson told The Daily Beast. “Specifically, in addition to disparaging CNN and its journalists, the ad makes assertions that have been proven demonstrably false by various news outlets, including CNN.”

I have no idea what “assertions” have been “proven demonstrably false.” That is a characterization that I would apply to probably 75% of Democratic Party advertising carried by CNN and other networks, but what they have in mind here, I don’t know. Here is the ad:

Donald J. Trump
