I was concerned as to how McCarthy would be as speaker, but so far he's holding TRUE to his word.

McCarthy Completely Annihilates Reporter Questioning His Decision to Remove Schiff and Swalwell from Committee
 By Elizabeth Stauffer January 25, 2023 

At a Tuesday news conference, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy stomped all over, jumped up and down on and then set fire to a reporter who questioned his decision to remove Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, both of California, from the House Intelligence Committee.

Who knew McCarthy was capable of delivering such an epic smackdown?

The reporter in question was Lisa Desjardins of PBS, who talked over the speaker as she badgered him about his removal of Schiff and Swalwell from the Intelligence Committee in relation to his stance on New York Republican Rep. George Santos, whose campaign fabrications have led to calls to resign.

At one point, Desjardins interrupted McCarthy to say he wasn’t answering her question.

“OK, let me be very clear and respectful to you,” he responded. “You asked me a question. When I answer it, it’s the answer to your question. You don’t get to determine whether I answered your question or not, OK? In all respect.”

The speaker continued, “Let’s answer her question. You just raised the question. I’m going to be very clear with you. The Intel Committee is different. You know why? Because what happens in the Intel Committee, you don’t know. What happens in the Intel Committee, all of the secrets that are going on in the world — other members of Congress don’t know.

“What did Adam Schiff do as the chairman of the Intel Committee? What Adam Schiff did was use his power as a chairman and lie to the American public. … When [former Intelligence Committee Ranking Member] Devin Nunes put out a memo, he said it was false.

“When we had a laptop [that once belonged to President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter], he used it before an election to be politics and say that it was false and said it was the Russians when he knew different. … If you talk to [former Director of National Intelligence] John Ratcliffe, DNI, he came out ahead of time and said there’s no intel to prove that.

“And he [Schiff] used his position as chairman, knowing he has information the rest of America does not, and lied to the American public. When a whistleblower came forward, he said he did not know the individual even though his staff had met with him and set it up.

“So no, he does not have a right to sit on that [committee]. But I will not be like Democrats and play politics with these, where they removed Republicans from committees and all committees. So yes, he can serve on a committee, but he will not serve on Intel because it goes to the national security of America and I will always put them first, all right?”

McCarthy then turned his attention to Swalwell and the Democrat’s relationship with Chinese operative Christine Fang.

“And if you want to talk about Swalwell, let’s talk about Swalwell, because you have not had the briefing that I had,” the speaker said. “I had the briefing and Nancy Pelosi had the briefing from the FBI. The FBI never came before this Congress to tell the leadership of this Congress that Eric Swalwell had a problem with a Chinese spy until he served on Intel.

“So it wasn’t just us who were concerned about it. The FBI was concerned about putting a member of Congress on the Intel Committee that has the rights to see things that others don’t because of his knowledge and relationship with the Chinese spy. … I got that briefing, so I do not believe he should sit on there, that committee, and I believe there’s 200 other Democrats that can serve on that committee.

“So this has nothing to do with Santos. Santos is not on the Intel Committee. But you know what? Those voters elected Schiff even though he lied. Those voters elected Swalwell even though he lied to the American public too. So you know what? I’ll respect his voters too and they’ll serve on committees, but they will not serve on a place that has national security relevance because integrity matters to me.

“That’s the answer to your question.



   @SpeakerMcCarthy to reporter: Let me be very clear & respectful to you. You ask me a question when I answer it it's the answer to your question. You don't get to determine whether I answer a question or not, okay? In all respect...what happens in the Intel Cmte you don't know

name has almost become synonymous with “liar” since 2016.

Despite the fact that evidence of former President Donald Trump’s collusion with the Kremlin to win the 2016 election never materialized, this repellent lawmaker claimed for three years that it was in “plain sight.”

Shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation ended in the spring of 2019, Schiff seized upon a July 2019 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and used it as the basis for Trump’s first impeachment. He then served as the lead House manager for the Senate trial, which ended in Trump’s acquittal.

Swalwell had issues of his own, including his entanglement with Fang, also called “Fang Fang.”

Axios broke the story in December 2020 that he had been targeted by what “U.S. officials believe was a political intelligence operation run by China’s main civilian spy agency between 2011 and 2015.” The report said she “took part in fundraising activity” for Swalwell’s 2014 campaign and even “helped place at least one intern in Swalwell’s office.”

He also has the dubious distinction of appearing to have farted on national television.

Good for McCarthy for making good on his promise to kick Schiff and Swalwell off the Intelligence Committee and for annihilating a liberal reporter who thinks lying to the public about issues of national importance is not a disqualification for service.

Could President Biden's classified documents scandal evolve into a counter-espionage case?    Story by Fox News Staff • 9h ago 

RealClearInvestigations reporter Paul Sperry said the classified documents scandal involving President Biden is "a lot more serious" than that of former President Donald Trump and could potentially evolve into a "counter-espionage case."

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel earlier in January tol involving President Biden is "a lot more serious" than that of former President Donald Trump and could potentially evolve into a "counter-espionage case." investigate Biden's alleged mishandling of classified documents after four sets were found at the Penn Biden Center and in the garage of the president's Delaware home.

"Biden was stockpiling classified documents. His son and brother were taking millions from Chinese bagmen under investigation for bribing world leaders. So Biden's case is potentially a counter-espionage case, which is a much bigger deal than just handling or mishandling documents," Sperry said Wednesday on "Jesse Watters Primetime."

Host Jesse Watters highlighted how the Penn Biden Center reportedly received millions of dollars from the Chinese government and how Hunter Biden allegedly shared an office with Kevin Dong, an associate of the Chinese energy company CEFC.

"So Hunter Biden actually closed — shut down that office right after one of his other — in that office in D.C., in Georgetown, actually, he had given the keys to this guy, Kevin Dong, and so he had access to that," Sperry explained.

"But right after another Chinese partner of his, a guy named Patrick Ho, his office for CEFC was raided, we learned recently from some law enforcement documents, was actually raided on the other side of the Potomac in Arlington, Virginia. Right after that, this is in 2017, late 2017, Hunter shuts down his office, and then Joe Biden opens his office in D.C. at the Penn Biden Center, which of course, is where some of the classified documents were transferred to."

Watters asked Sperry if he was suspicious of anything else about the Biden family's alleged ties to China.

"Yeah, so we also learned from some of these federal law enforcement documents that the whole situation was so serious in terms of the counterintelligence concerns with the Bidens and their Chinese partners that the feds actually put the Chinese partners under a FISA surveillance, and at the same time, they were monitoring the Bidens' communications with those Chinese partners."

House Republicans opened an investigation into Biden and his family, alleging the president himself was actively involved in his son's business dealings.

GOP lawmakers released a report in November that claimed they had uncovered evidence of a conspiracy to defraud the U.S., wire fraud, violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, money laundering, tax evasion and other crimes.

So....Osama/Obama set the stage for the US to get the virus?

The media ignored a very fateful event in the waning days of the Obama administration by Elizabeth Stauffer • Yesterday Washington Examiner  
Independent journalist Mike McCormick served as a White House stenographer during the Obama administration, an experience that provided him with both insider knowledge and a unique perspective. In a recent Substack post, McCormick questioned why, less than two weeks prior to former President Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Obama administration chose to give the “green light” to lift the moratorium on federal funding for gain-of-function research, or research intended to increase the lethality or the transmissibility of a pathogen

In the process, he exposed some fateful developments, largely unreported by the press, that occurred in the weeks before former President Barack Obama handed over the reins to his successor.

Heretofore, Obama appeared throughout his presidency (at least publicly) to be leery of the risks associated with GOF research. His concern grew after a series of “biosafety incidents” had occurred at government research facilities. And in October 2014, his administration announced a pause on all funding of GOF research, during which they would conduct an assessment of its “potential risks and benefits.”

This “deliberative process” ended on Jan. 9, 2017, when the White House Office of Science and Technology set in motion the events that would lift the moratorium on funding later that year.7

“Today, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is releasing ‘Recommended Policy Guidance for Departmental Development of Review Mechanisms for Potential Pandemic Pathogen Care and Oversight (P3CO).’ Adoption of these recommendations will satisfy the requirements for lifting the current moratorium on certain life sciences research that could enhance a pathogen’s virulence and/or transmissibility to produce a potential pandemic pathogen (an enhanced PPP). [Emphasis added.]

Issuance of this policy guidance concludes the deliberative process launched in October 2014 by OSTP and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).”

This stunning announcement received little or no press coverage. By that time, the media’s obsession with taking down Trump and painting him as an agent of Russia was dominating the news cycle.

Joe Biden Is In a World of Trouble
Story by Peter Suciu • 2h ago

The Unanswered Questions Surrounding Joe Biden's Classified Documents Scandal: What did he know, and when did he know it?

Those were questions asked by many 50 years ago this February as the United States Senate began to investigate the Watergate burglary.

The same questions have been used over the years with various political scandals – including now with President Joe Biden's classified documents.

Why Were Joe Biden's Lawyers Cleaning Out His Office?

This question was asked by American businessman Greg Orman in an op-ed for this week.

Orman noted that the official story doesn't hold up, especially as it suggests "middle-class Joe" employed his lawyers to "pack up" the president's former office at the Penn Biden Center.

"As many big-time East Coast lawyers now routinely charge $1,000 an hour, it's an awfully expensive packing crew," Orman wrote, and he suggested that the intent wasn't actually to "pack" but rather was to purge. The timing is noteworthy too, as it occurred just a week before the midterms, and could have been conducted in anticipation of a GOP-led investigation – as the Republicans were expected to take control of the House of Representatives.

Were the Lawyers Actually Allowed to Look For the Documents?

Another question is why Biden's attorneys were allowed to operate without the presence of any external official.

This was the case at both the Penn Biden Center and at his Delaware homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach.

Numerous sources have noted that Biden's personal lawyers wouldn't have had security clearance to review any TS/SCI documents.

This one could be answered – at least in part. There were reportedly two sets of attorneys, and that included Biden's personal attorneys but also those from the White House counsel office, who owe a duty to the government of the United States and not personally to Joe Biden. Even if that is the case, one may still ask why the personal lawyers were on hand.

Did Joe Biden Actually "Self Report" as He Claims?

The president and his allies have maintained that Biden "self-reported" his wrongdoing – at least compared to how former President Donald Trump handled classified documents.

But one wrong doesn't make the other right, and certainly not in this case.

According to former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy in an opinion piece for wrote that Biden did not self-report, certainly not in the manner in which the president has suggested. McCarthy added that to "self-report" a crime, a person needs to report it to law enforcement. Biden didn't do that.

"A close look at the timeline elucidates that the White House hoped this issue would slip quietly into a black hole, with no publicity and no criminal investigation," McCarthy argued.

How Did the Documents End Up at the Penn Biden Center?

Multiple media reports, including those from 19FortyFive, have stated Biden used the office at his D.C.-based think tank after leaving the vice presidency.

Here is where McCarthy shed a bit more light on the issue, noting, "The Penn Biden Center did not open until February 2018. Joe Biden obviously took the documents when he left the Obama White House in 2017."

A follow-up question is where were the documents during the 13 months in between? And were they stored in Biden's garage next to the prized Corvette?

Can We Expect More Documents to be Found?

At this point, it seems unlikely additional classified documents will be found – the Biden offices are closed up, and the home has been searched (repeatedly) – but that won't make the questions go away.

The biggest question now is how we can take Biden seriously when he said, "I take classified documents and classified materials seriously."

Of course, it was also last summer that Biden asked the question: "How that could possibly happen," Biden said in response to Trump's mishandling of classified materials. "How one – anyone could be that irresponsible. And I thought – what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods ... And it's just – totally irresponsible."

Udder Nonsense   Alan Joseph Ba Jan 21, 202

The Left tends to ignore large swaths of data or technical considerations in order to get to a pre-approved “scientific” conclusion. Enron also hid its debts to paint a rosy economic picture, and we all know how that turned out.

The latest fad, pushed by the massive French yogurt company Danone, is to put diapers and masks on cows. The press reports made no mention of pacifiers. The ostensible idea is that cows, those indispensable sources of yogurt and ice cream, produce large amounts of methane both forward and aft. As anyone who has been awake for the past decade knows, methane is much, much worse than carbon dioxide in trapping reflected radiation and thus heating up our planet. While past attempts to deal with cow flatulence have included altering feed so as to produce less gas, the goal of the French is to trap the gases and prevent their release into the atmosphere. If one looks at pictures of the diapers, they by no means seem hermetic and I kind of wonder how efficient they will be in trapping CH4 molecules. While on the one hand I am glad that they have found a use for the leftover Covid masks (now selling in Israel at 10% of their peak price), I hope that the cows will still be able to recognize one another.

Justice Department tells House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan that it won't share information about ongoing criminal probes   Story by (John L. Dorman)  Business Insider
  • The DOJ told Jim Jordan it wouldn't be able to share all information about ongoing criminal probes.
  • In a letter to Republicans, the DOJ said it needed to preserve the "integrity" of its investigations.
  • "We are committed to cooperating with the Committee's legitimate efforts to seek information," the DOJ said. 
The Justice Department informed House Republicans that it's unlikely the agency would share information about its ongoing criminal probes — a move likely to frustrate GOP leaders as they seek to scrutinize President Joe Biden.

The Department of Justice said in the letter — obtained by Politico on Friday — that it "stands ready" to work with congressional leaders, but told Republican House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio that "any oversight requests must be weighed against the department's interests in protecting the integrity of its work."

"The Department's mission to independently and impartially uphold the rule of law requires us to maintain the integrity of our investigations, prosecutions, and civil actions, and to avoid even a perception that our efforts are influenced by anything but the law and the facts," the letter read.

"With respect to oversight requests for information and documents, we share your belief that congressional oversight is vital to our functioning democracy and we are committed to cooperating with the Committee's legitimate efforts to seek information, consistent with our obligation to protect Executive Branch confidentiality interests," the letter added."
