Republican Josh Hawley Plans To Force Subpoena Votes For Witnesses That Will Enrage Democrats

Democrats say they want witnesses, because they failed to do their job properly in forcing their ultra-partisan impeachment theater through the House too fast. They primarily called witnesses they thought would hurt Trump (and were surprised when they didn’t). So, now

Josh Hawley Plans to Force Subpoena Votes for Bidens, Schiff, ‘Whistleblower’

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) revealed Saturday he has drafted motions to subpoena former Vice President Joe Biden, his youngest son Hunter Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and the so-called “whistleblower.”

Hawley will attempt to force a vote on the subpoenas if the Senate approves additional witnesses and documents as part of the upper chamber’s trial.

Politico reported:

Hawley would also seek communications among the whistleblower, Schiff and his staff, transcripts of Atkinson’s congressional testimony, communications between the House impeachment managers and Democratic presidential candidates as well as documents related to Biden’s drive to oust former Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin.

Senator Lindsay Graham is against bringing in Hunter, as it would extend the trial theater, and I agree, but, because we do not really need to hear from Hunter. We do need to hear from Joe. Show the video of him extorting Ukraine, saying aid would be withheld unless the prosecutor investigating Burisma was fired. He bragged about it. Make him explain it. Ask if Obama actually approved of it. Heck, let’s nicely ask Shokin to appear.

Most certainly bring in the whistleblower, as what they actually heard. What’s that? They never witnessed anything first hand? Huh. And Schiff, let’s hear about the communications with the whistleblower. Let’s hear from the people who suddenly changed whistleblower standards to include 3rd and 4th hand material a month before the whistleblower went public.

Democrats had their turn. Now the GOP has theirs.

We’re Saved: Climate Cultist Play Tackles Blaming Boomers

Say, what’s the carbon footprint of this play? All the electricity needed, the props, all the Warmists taking fossil fueled vehicles to travel to see it?

Review: In ‘Earthquakes in London,’ climate change shakes a family to its core

The truths we hold to be self-evident revolve around personal liberty, but when it comes to the greater good — the survival of the planet, for example — other truths are less convenient. Navigating the moral tightrope between individual need and collective responsibility brings riveting seismic impact to Rogue Machine‘s production of the climate change drama “Earthquakes in London.”

British playwright Mike Bartlett’s remarkably prescient 2010 work explores the existential challenges posed by successive generations of greed, neglect and science denial, laying particular blame on boomers who knowingly traded their descendants’ futures for short-term gratification.

We don’t want kids to have short term gratification, right?

Flashbacks introduce us to the corruption of a brilliant young engineer who buried his alarming environmental research findings in exchange for funding from the rapidly expanding airline industry of the early 1970s. The bulk of the play concerns the present-day legacy of that original sin, as the three daughters of the now-embittered scientist (Ron Bottitta) deal with a looming climate crisis.

Sounds like a lot of fun, eh? But, then, Warmists are rather humorless scolds to start with.

Elizabeth Warren Demands Big Banks Turn Over Their ‘Climate Change’ Plans

Under what authority is she doing this? She’s a federal Senator.

Warren asks banks to turn over plans to prepare for climate change

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sent a series of letters to the nation’s largest banks Wednesday asking them to turn over their plans for how they will prepare for the financial risks of climate change.

“As climate change continues to affect our economy, it is critical to understand your bank’s adaptation and mitigation strategies,” Warren wrote.

Warren’s letter highlighted a number of financial risks that could stem from climate change, all part of a package of research from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

Sea level rise and floods could impact the real estate market. Increasingly severe natural disasters could stress financial markets, particularly as displaced people move away from often-hit areas.

You mean natural risks that have always happened could cause issues? ZOMG!

The letter was sent to JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, Bank of New York Mellon, Morgan Stanley and State Street.

Warren’s letter comes as environmentalists’ push for Wall Street to take action on climate change is gaining traction.

The letter, which asked for banks to respond by Feb. 7, won’t just document banks’ response to climate change, but also asks the financial institutions to go on the record on their support for a Warren bill that would require “bank stress tests” for various climate scenarios.

The tests would require banks to evaluate risk at 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming above pre-industrial levels, 2 degrees of warming, and one assuming a “business as usual” path.

If banks did not provide a satisfactory plan under each scenario, the Federal Reserve could block them from making loans.

Wait, wait, was that part about “asks the financial institutions to go on the record on their support for a Warren bill that would require “bank stress tests” for various climate scenarios.” And about the Fed blocking banks from making loans if they do not support Liz’s climate cult fantasies? Warmists have given me crap for around 15 years for saying this whole thing has nothing to do with science and everything to do with Progressive (nice Fascist) politics, and then Warmists like Liz keep proving that I’m right.

Hey, maybe we can put a windmill on every teepee.

(Photobucket sorta seems to be working, we’ll see if the photo lasts)

Irony: Democrats Wrap Their Impeachment Theater Arguments By Calling Trump A Dictator

Let’s remember what Ted Cruz said: “If you have the facts, you bang the facts. If you have the law, you bang the law. If you don’t have either, you bang the table. Today, we’ve seen a whole lot of table banging.” How’s this for table banging? This is from the NY Times front page with their main bullet points

Democrats PRess Obstruction Case Against Trump
Days of Arguments Wrap Up With a Dire Warning
-House impeachment managers concluded their case against President Trump with an emphatic call for his removal. “He is a dictator,” Representative Jerry Nadler said.
-Republicans appeared unmoved — not just on the question of whether to acquit Mr. Trump, but on whether to compel witnesses and documents, too.

Wait, what was that dictator part?

[Schiff] and the six other managers prosecuting the president spent much of Friday tying up the facts of the second charge, obstruction of Congress, and arguing that Mr. Trump’s attempts to shut down a congressional inquiry into his actions toward Ukraine was unprecedented and undermined the very ability of the government to correct itself.

“He is a dictator,” said Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York. “This must not stand.”

If he was a dictator, there would be no impeachment theater. Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi, and the rest would have been rounded up long ago. Their would be no #NeverTrump movement, at least not an open one. The news would not be speaking out against him. He’d be passing rules with his pen and phone, right, avoiding the duly elected legislative branch, right? Na, even that doesn’t make a president a dictator.

We refer to this as theater. It’s becoming clearer and clearer that that is all it is. The Democrats are playing to their base and the unhinged #NeverTrumpers on the right. They want this stuff on the news, hoping to pick off some Trump voters for the general election. They don’t have to get them to vote Democrat, just to not vote Trump. They knew from the start this was going to fail, because they had no evidence. Hence, the obstruction of Congress and abuse of power, while failing to actually include the quid pro quo/bribery stuff that (supposedly) started this whole thing, based on 3rd and 4th hand hearsay. They knew that getting to 67 votes to boot Trump would be impossible. Now they go completely over the top, making it even more impossible. Here’s Excitable Adam Schiff

Mr. Schiff’s fiery final oration appeared to alienate the very Republicans he was trying to win over. When he referred to an anonymously sourced news report that Republican senators had been warned that their heads would be “on a pike” if they voted against Mr. Trump, several of them vigorously shook their heads and broke their sworn silence: “not true.”

As the Times points out in a separate article, this delighted the left and enraged the right. This almost guarantees that the squishes on the GOP side won’t vote to boot Trump. Democrats will then claim that the whole thing was rigged, that the GOP didn’t want to listen, that they don’t care. Think about Democrats saying that it is a conspiracy if Republicans don’t vote to boot Trump. Now it’s time for Mitch McConnell and Trump to turn this around on Democrats.

Angela Merkel Urges Dialogue Between Climate Cultists And Skeptics

It’s rather hard to have a conversation with climate cultists who are unable to provide any proof of their beliefs, refuse to practice what they preach, block you on all social media, refuse to appear on TV shows with anyone who doesn’t have the same rigid beliefs, and Demand that all news outlets refuse to give Skeptics any platform, because they’re heretics and should be burned at the stake

Merkel urges dialogue between skeptics and believers to tackle climate change

The world needs an open dialogue about climate change to heal the gap between sceptics and believers since time is running out to cut the emissions that drive global warming, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday.

“Time is pressing, so we – the older ones, I am 65 years old – must make sure that we take the impatience of young people positively and constructively,” Merkel told the World Economic Forum in Switzerland.

The first two days of the annual Davos gathering were dominated by the back-and-forth between the 73-year-old former businessman Trump and 17-year-old campaigner Greta Thunberg, with corporate leaders caught in the middle, concerned that as well as words, there was a need for concrete decisions.

She drew applause from the Davos audience when she said opposing sides in polarised debates such as that on climate change had to learn how to talk with each other again.

Hmm. It looks like what she’s advocating is a dialogue that tells Skeptics what they must believe. She believes that “time is running out to cut emissions,” Skeptics do not. Believers (I like that Reuters chose to label them as such) want to do it in a way that taxes you, increases your cost of living, and limits your freedom and choice. They want massive government control over everything. There could be some agreement on solutions, such as a big increase in the use of nuclear power, R&D into solar, wind, etc, not so much to decrease “carbon pollution” from the skeptic side, just as things that make sense. But, the Warmists generally do not want that.

And after her applause she jumped in a fossil fueled vehicle/private jet to head back to Germany.
