  1. We need a prime time show trial just like the Jan 6th ‘Insurrection’ committee. Meanwhile, the Biden criminal family members should all be behind bars.

    If not, then lead off with investigating something that really matters to us all… election integrity – get rid of Dominion voting machines and make voter ID mandatory. Or investigate the weaponization of the US government against American citizens. Or the scandalous neglect of our immigration laws and the open border that has illegally let in a couple million unknown people. Abolish the IRS. Establish term limits. Lower taxes. Get rid of regulations for our energy sector.

    Notice where the media is now focusing – seeking to push the other investigations out of the news. This is all deliberate, folks…


    “House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) requested a range of documents and other materials from the White House after it was revealed that classified documents were found at President Joe Biden’s office and Delaware home, triggering a special counsel investigation.

    In a new letter issued to White House counsel Stuart Delery on Friday, Comer noted that his committee recently initiated an investigation into Biden’s possession of classified materials and said that more documents are needed by Jan. 27. That includes “all classified documents” that were recently obtained by Biden’s lawyers “at any location,” according to the letter.

    Comer’s letter also sought a complete list of Biden’s aides and lawyers who are tasked to look through Biden’s documents, a list of locations where the documents were found, and communications and documents that were sent between the Department of Justice and White House or the National Archives. The latest House Oversight letter was triggered after a second batch of documents were found by Biden’s aides and lawyers inside rooms of his Delaware residence; classified materials were also found at his Washington office.

    “We have [documents] revealing this address appeared on Hunter’s driver’s license as recently as 2018,” House Oversight Republicans wrote, referring to Biden’s son Hunter Biden, “the same time he was cutting deals with foreign adversaries.”

    The nexus between the tranche of documents and Hunter Biden is notable, as the GOP has long sought to investigate connections between the president and his son’s controversial business ventures in China and Ukraine. Before Republicans took control of the House, Comer and other Republicans announced they want to make investigating the Bidens’ business dealings a priority.

    That also includes how Twitter officials in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election worked to suppress a story that shed light on the younger Biden’s laptop and messages between Hunter and others that made reference to his father as “the big guy” amid dealings with a Chinese conglomerate. Recent files released at the behest of new Twitter owner Elon Musk revealed that a former FBI official who used to work at Twitter, James Baker, suggested in an email to other Twitter managers that a New York Post report about Hunter’s business ties should remain blocked while inaccurately suggesting it was disinformation.

    “Now that Democrats no longer have one-party rule in Washington, oversight and accountability are coming,” Comer said in a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, asking her to provide his panel with suspicious activity reports for Hunter Biden, James Biden, and other Biden family members. “The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating President Biden’s involvement in his family’s foreign business practices and international influence peddling schemes,” Comer wrote to Yellen.”

  2. More?

    Oh my……


    Time to begin impeachment proceedings….


    “Five additional pages of classified documents were discovered in President Joe Biden’s home, his special counsel, Richard Sauber announced Saturday.

    The pages were found by Sauber on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, as he was facilitating the delivery of another classified document found Wednesday to the Department of Justice (DOJ), Sauber said in a statement.”


  3. Uhhh….

    That’s a dude.


  4. He’s ranting and raving because he knows what he’s done will be discovered.

    Time to own it Schifty.


  5. Antifa always protects the pedos.

    Hacks gonna hack.


  8. Like

  9. But muh narrative….


  10. Stop the enviro do gooders, to save the whales. It’s not just birds their wind projects are killing.

    “7th dead whale washes up at Jersey Shore. Calls to stop offshore wind work grow.”


    “Cindy Zipf, executive director of Long Branch-based non-profit, Clean Ocean Action, said the group was also aware of the whale that washed up in Brigantine on Friday and were sending organizers to the site.

    “This is bad news on top of bad news,” Zipf told NJ Advance Media on Friday over the phone.

    “This is devastating and shows even more urgency to our call to action for (President Joe) Biden and Gov. Phil Murphy to call for a stop to all activity,” she added. “Don’t add any more projects and get a comprehensive investigation underway with experts and full transparency with oversight.”

    While no offshore wind turbines have been built in New Jersey, several projects are in the works as Murphy pushes for the Garden State to reach his offshore electric wind generation goal of 11,000 megawatts of usage by 2040.

    Murphy on Wednesday during a radio appearance called the string of whale deaths “tragic” and said a probe was underway to find the cause. A spokesman from his office deferred comment Friday to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

    NOAA officials said the federal agency was also involved in investigating the Brigantine incident.

    “We should suspend all work related to offshore wind development until we can determine the cause of death of these whales, some of which are endangered,” state Senator Vince Polistina (R-Atlantic) said in a statement. “The work related to offshore wind projects is the primary difference in our waters, and it’s hard to believe that the death of (the) whales on our beaches is just a coincidence.”

    Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-2nd Dist., also called for a offshore wind work stoppage.”


  11. This is what collusion looks like.

    “#Twitterfiles Part 14 – “Russiagate scandal was built on the craven dishonesty of politicians and reporters”

    “Twitter warned politicians and media the not only lacked evidence, but had evidence the accounts weren’t Russian – and were roundly ignored.”


    “The Twitterfiles have confirmed much of what we knew but had trouble proving because the evidence was hidden from plain sight. We only saw the end product of bias, but the Twitterfiles have revealed internal documents from Twitter. The document released in numerous tranches provide the proof that the mainstream corporate liberal media is deeply corrupt, and colluded with Big Tech and the federal government to manipulate elections and everything relating to Donald Trump.

    Part 14 of the Twitterfiles was released today in a Twitter thread by Matt Taibi. It concerns former Representative Devon Nunes, and claims that Nunes’ 2017-2018 attempt to expose federal surveillance of the Trump campaign was aided and abetted by Russian bots on Twitter. Much of the fight was over a memorandum Nunes prepared using classified material spelling out the details. There was an effort to get the Nunes memo released to the public.

    I had a vague recollection of the controvery, so I dug back into the Legal Insurrection archives and found these posts:

    Chairman Nunes Says Trump’s General Use of “Wiretapping” Was Correct (March 22, 2017)
    House Intel Chair Nunes: “I would be concerned if I was the President” (March 24, 2017)
    House Intel Chairman Nunes Met With His Secret Source on White House Grounds (March 27, 2017)
    Dems want Devin Nunes removed, but can’t unhear unmasking allegations (April 2, 2017)
    Devin Nunes steps away from Russia probe (April 6, 2017)
    *UPDATE* House Intel Committee Votes to Release Nunes’ Memo (January 29, 2018)
    Nunes Memo Alleges FBI Used Dossier to Get FISA Warrant on Trump Campaign Member (February 2, 2018)”

    The media was brutal in pushing the narrative that support on Twitter for releasing the memo using the hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo was a Russian bot operation.

    In Part 14 of the Twitterfiles, Taibbi reveals that the claim that Russian bots were boosting the movement to #ReleaseTheMemo was false, it was known by Twitter to be false, Twitter told media and Democrat politicians there was no evidence to support it, but the smear campaign against Nunes and Trump based on supposed Russian bots continued.”


    Click the Tweet and read on….


  12. The real joke is our biased, lying media and their Democrat handlers.


  13. Sure, now, after millions have been permanently damaged by them.


  14. The pure irony of a trans woman running the Miss Universe is incredible. Pageants objectify women and now a person who views herself as a woman and has through surgery has assembled the parts is now in charge. Amused – hopefully this signals the death knell for the pagent.

  15. Not sure who the gentleman is in the Schiff tweet but he’s not ranting and raving. If the “Freedom Caucus” becomes the tail that wags the dog, the Republican party will be in trouble in 2024

    Not sure why there is this huge drag queen panic. Mrs. Doubtfire, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Norbit, Nutty Professor, etc etc were mainstream movies in the last 50 years and nobody complained.

    I wonder how many of those “antifa” members were actually cops or agent provocateurs. Interestingly, many in the American anarchist movement are pro gun – I’m waiting for Republicans to pull a Reagan and start favoring gun control now that “antifa” is armed. Reagan favored gun control once the Black Panthers armed themselves.

    From what I understand, the problem many people have with “crisis pregnancy centers” is some delibrately misled young women long enough so they are no longer able to have an abortion. Now some would say it’s a lie for the greater good. Now if the pregnancy centers consistently provide pre and post natal care, I would actually agree. Unfortunately it’s not always the case. Then again to me, a true pro life position would include free health care and paid maternity leave.


  16. The left side of the internet is arguing the difference between Biden and Trumps in terms of documents is the cooperation and the disclosure. Trump has this habit of trying to avoid responsibility and make excuses. For example, “I declassified them”. In addition he forced the archives hand by refusing to cooperate. Meanwhile Biden or more accurately those associated with Biden have wisely appeared far more cooperative. Appearances matter in this case.


  17. Trump had the power to declassify anything he chose.

    Biden did not.

    Trump told them what he had and negotiated immediately with the feds.

    Biden told no one and hid them in his unsecured desk and garage for years, never informing anyone what he had.

    Big difference.

    And now they have no route to try Trump for documents he was legally allowed to possess because of Biden’s ineptitude. 🙂
