Republicans Storm Closed-Room No-Rules Lynching, Demanding Due Process In Fake Impeachment

See the Daily Caller.

Schiff, it turns out, was a timid little sissy.


Dozens of Republicans, including some members of leadership, barged into the secure hearing room in the Capitol basement where Laura Cooper, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia, was set to provide private testimony. GOP lawmakers have argued that other lawmakers, not just members of the three committees leading the probe, should be able to attend the closed-door hearings with witnesses.

Several lawmakers said that, in response to the Republican protest, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) had left the room with Cooper, postponing the interview indefinitely.

Rep. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) said Schiff said "nothing" when the members sat down before he left with Cooper.

"He doesn't have the guts to come talk to us," Marshall said. "He left, he just got up and left. He doesn't have the guts to tell us why we can’t come in the room, why he doesn't want this to be transparent. It's the biggest facade, biggest farce of my life."



Pure political theater? Well, maybe not. The "testimony" is indefinitely delayed as Republicans and Democrats try to work out a compromise that will end the stand-off.

Like, maybe returning to the actual rules of impeachment?

The two sides were still trying to work through the standoff by mid-morning, with Republicans who do not sit on the committees leading the inquiry refusing to leave the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the Capitol and Democrats insisting those lawmakers had no right to be there.

...

Republicans said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) was threatening GOP lawmakers with ethics violations. Schiff was also consulting with the House's sergeant at arms.

So, batten down for some over-the-top partisan spin from Politico:


The GOP-led stunt, led by House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), comes as President Donald Trump has demanded that Republicans "get tough and fight" for him in the impeachment probe. But Republicans have struggled to defend Trump on the substance of the allegations against him, and have instead focused on hammering Democrats over what they see as an illegitimate impeachment process.

Storming in and mostly out of places has been a standard congressional Democrat play for about 30 years -- and liberal media outfits like Politico have always called this tactic a "protest," not a stunt.

Now it's a stunt, and Republicans are seizing and/or pouncing on a complete absence of due process.

I don't think I've ever seen a total break in the perception of events this great before, ever in my life. Not on this scale.

Anybody who can rise above the partisan bickering and try to look at what has happened to the political landscape over the last 10+ years see that people who are right-leaning are sick and tired of the limp wristedness of the GOPe. This is how we got Trump. We here all know this. It was perhaps a temper tantrum of the voters, hopefully more of an uprising or revolution. Yet the GOPe still doesn't get it. They seem to want to go back being the party always in the minority, always crying unfair!!!Glad to see Scalise grow a pair and stand up. If only there were a couple hundred more of him.

108 Storming in and mostly out of places has been a standard congressional Democrat play for about 30 years -- and liberal media outfits like Politico have always called this tactic a "protest," not a stunt.

-----


Yeah, I remember ages ago - during the Clinton impeachment, maybe? - I watched all the Democrats do a big walk-out live on CNN. Dramatic footage of them standing en masse and walking out of the room, then they switched to some outside cameras to show whoever the Dem leader in congress was at the time leading them all out of the building and down some steps to... an empty podium that had conveniently set up with a microphone and was surrounded by news cameras.

I don't think I've ever seen a total break in the perception of events this great before, ever in my life. Not on this scale.

Hell, I have the same break - inside my own brain.

I can't figure out if House Dems are even serious about this ridiculous bullshit.

Non-whistleblowing/perhaps itself illegal inaccurate disclosure of presidential conversation with a foreign leader occurs, in which nothing alleged [incorrectly] is the least bit unusual, much less improper, even less illegal or impeachable - immediate release of transcript confirms all this. Dumb stunt over, instantly.


Regardless, Dems proceed with unprecedented, farcical, unconstitutional "process". But it's GOP that is "struggling" to defend Trump from ridiculous, disproven allegations that *even if true, were of no consequence*.

The Dem argument is that an impeachment is an indictment and grand juries are closed and so the inquiry should be closed.

316 That Medium article in the sidebar on climate has some decent points about politicizing science and what some scientists are actually saying as opposed to what climate hysterics are saying... but its deeply flawed.

He takes the position without any defense that the global warming scaremongering is absolutely true and that only someone who is crazy or stupid would question that. Then he blames the right for not buying into all this, which makes the left able to use it for political gain.

But the left has stated repeatedly (and he quotes a few times) that their goal all along has had nothing to do with science and everything to do with their radical political schemes.

Slightly risky, because of the media, but it would sure as hell be a thumb in the eye of Schiff and his quislings.

My conservative dad was just laughing about it. He pointed out that the polls had all shown Carter and Dukakis beating Reagan and Bush - until one month before the election, when they adjusted to save their phony-baloney reputations.

That they were nothing more than Democrat propaganda, and hinge on the whims of the Party.

She never believed them again... and I never did in the first place.

The abuse of office (isn't that the charge they want to get Trump on now?) ... is what the Dems and some FBI/CIA are doing. We need real indictments, not subtle hints that "something is happening" #2weeks.


Yes it takes time to make solid cases ... but I can't believe there is not open evidence that could easily be prosecuted. I used to watch Charles Ortel present an hour or two each week on solid evidence that Clintons ran an illegal charity, multiple clear counts of crimes ... nobody touches them. This is not normal "due process" ... it is a protected crime syndicate that can murder inconvenient witnesses, imprison others (Epstein, Assange, Rudy's Ukraine witnesses) ... Mifsud in hiding?

And when the Sieve turned round and round,
And every one cried, 'You'll all be drowned!'
They called aloud, 'Our Sieve ain't big,
But we don't care a button! we don't care a fig!
In a Sieve we'll go to sea!'
Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve.

474 I will repeat some thing for the record because I'm bored with work but typing looks to be work-related activity:

1. No impeachment proceeding is taking place because an impeachment proceeding begins when the whole House votes to start one and no such vote has taken place.

2. Lurking Lurker is a poll troll, albeit an especially passive-aggressive one.

3. Politicians constantly test the prevailing political winds. If the Donald looks vulnerable, they'll tack that way; if the Donald looks like he'll win in 11/20, they'll tack that way.

The song does do a good job at creating images and rhyming, and it is catchy, so I don't see the hate. But yes he has much better songs once he found his own style.

Polling is the modern faux-scientific way of divination. Instead of tea leaves of animal entrails, you have a guy with a clipboard asking leading questions of a set tiny group, then pretending that equals the opinions of a huge set of people.

And then there are popularity polls which are even more worthless. Even if they are remotely indicative of the public's mood, they don't represent what will happen in an election. You can disapprove someone and vote for them anyway. Particularly if you disapprove of their opponents even more.

605 Lurker the reason people doubt your support for the president is that you continually look for every possible opportunity to say things that are negative about him and his future. Every single piece of bad news you can find, every poll, every comment, everything you can discover that is meant to depress or upset people, you rush to post about.

607 In 2016 polls were off by a few points in a handful of states. After being accurate in pretty much every other election before and after.

You can think that one fluke will be repeated in 2020, which is possible. Or you can believe it was a 1 time fluke.

Only time will tell which is true.

Then, like so many things post-Obama, and especially during the 2016 election where Springsteen campaigned HARD for Hillary, the scales were removed from my eyes and I realized Springsteen was the worst kind of hardcore socialist lefty cocksucker who'd been running a scam for all those years.

You say Trump's support is cratering. Setting aside that that is the message that the dems would love us to take, where is the other evidence? The rallies have still been packing them in. Now that is also a single data point and also propaganda (albeit for our side) but what else do we have to go by?

This argument is like listening to a professor talk to a chimpanzee.

Scorcese and others point out that while entertaining and fun, the Marvel films are essentially cheap thrills and not great cinema. Instead of going "yeah, you're right but they're fun!" Marvel (and their zombie-like fans) are all OUTRAGED and shocked that someone, anyone could possibly doubt their greatness!

"they had an emotional impact" is not proof or even evidence of being great cinema. Horror films have an emotional impact (fear). Jackass films had an emotional impact (revulsion and regret for buying a ticket). That does not mean you've made art.

Ace was pro-Cruz and anti-Establishment. He wanted the "Influencers" to rally behind Cruz and not blow their wad on weasels like Rubio.

But the "Influencers" didn't do that, and that betrayal hurt. I remember because I was in the Colorado Assembly (what we call the state convention) supporting Cruz. Who was already doomed because of other states' RINO voters splitting their vote.

And then the "Influencers" (including Cruz himself, sadly) flounced off rather than support the nominee whom their arrogance had created. That betrayal was worse.

My answer to these kinds of questions is that food categories are taxonomic hierarchical descriptors with the convention that you use the most specific applicable one. Calling a hotdog a sandwich may technically be true, but it's not a good use of language to refer it that way most of the time. It's like somebody pointing and asking "what kind of animal is that?" and me saying "it's a vertibrate" when it's a German Shepard.

772 That Medium article in the sidebar on climate has some decent points about politicizing science and what some scientists are actually saying as opposed to what climate hysterics are saying... but its deeply flawed.

He takes the position without any defense that the global warming scaremongering is absolutely true and that only someone who is crazy or stupid would question that. Then he blames the right for not buying into all this, which makes the left able to use it for political gain.

But the left has stated repeatedly (and he quotes a few times) that their goal all along has had nothing to do with science and everything to do with their radical political schemes.

GAH! Last night attended a meeting on the ghey issue in the Methodist Church. Smoke is still curling out of my ears.

I certainly lost the friendship of some fellow church members. I suspect that I'm being unpersoned as we speak.

I am still (and probably will be for the foreseeable future) *very* , uh, upset about the issue. I am losing my church (five generations in the family now) to people who place their emotional 'wants' above the well-being of the church.

The frogboil transmutation from a church of spiritual activism to a church of social activism is well under way. It is at once heartbreaking and infuriating.

But it's important to look at the big picture and remember where we are and where we want to go. This country was on a one-way ride to disaster, removed from our founding principles and trading them for corruption, lawlessness and one party rule. We didn't get here overnight, this process has been going on since before even Vic was born.

It's not easy turning around an aircraft carrier and it doesn't happen overnight. But you don't get anywhere without a first step and we are taking huge strides in beginning to turn this around.

Draining the swamp is a process and the process is well underway. Eyes on the prize.

Compromise with the left goes like this:



Take ten steps left



No, how about 5?



Has to be 10.



Ok, 9?



Great. We have a deal! Now take 10 steps left.

934 And if the result was only off by a teeny amount, why was everyone predicting a Hillary landslide?

Because

a) they weren't off by a teeny percent
b) he's looking at overall national averages rather than state polling results, which were way off in many cases.

See that's how statistics works. You can get pretty much any result you want, depending on how you look at the numbers.

Jesus was antisemitic (see the violent outburst at the Jewish temple), he slut-shamed the Samaritan woman at the well, and quite possibly a fascist, since he advocated giving to Caesar what was Caesar's.

Dude wouldn't make it past primary season.

954 The burden of proof may be high, but you can't silence anyone. I've read papers in the conference journals written by near lunatics...but they were printed all the same.

To me, that's what makes science interesting. OK this guy sounds like a total crank, but let's investigate and see. Like that crazy Pasteur guy who said that people get sick because of tiny little creatures in their blood. WHAT A LOON!

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at October 23, 2019 02:36 PM (KZzsI)

The problem is that people take anything published as dogma. This to me suggests most things should not be generally circulated.
Posted by: Someguy at October 23, 2019 02:39 PM (6GjnW)

The proceedings of the meetings of the Astronomical Association qualify as "not generally circulated".

To bad for the theory of "Zig Zag and Swirl" which said that everything was falling, but then they would jiggle to the side a bit. I even got a free copy of the guy's book by writing him.

The problem with gatekeeping is who chooses the gatekeepers?

The creeping death in Science of this started with the gatekeeping of the finding lobbies in Global Warming, and is not creeping in more and more fields.

956 Well I think science would be a lot better off if a few of the sacred cows were questioned more and tested more as well. Things taken for granted and even angrily defended.

There's the old adage that the way for a new theory to take hold is to wait for the old scientists to die.
