[Jpost] British Prime Minister Boris Johnson denied on Monday that he had inappropriately touched a female journalist 20 years ago, and said the public were more interested in hearing about his plans for services.
Charlotte Edwardes, a columnist, wrote in The Sunday Times that Johnson had groped her at a lunch in 1999 when he was editor of The Spectator magazine. I still think he should change his name to Bors, and get a proper haircut!
[Twitchy] On Friday, the New York Times reported that President Trump met with NRA head Wayne LaPierre and that in return for their support as he head toward impeachment, the president would “‘stop the games’ over gun control legislation.”
But in the hours since they published the article, the NYT has stealth-edited the quid pro quo part out:
It’s Twitchy, so most of the article is actually tweets, which can be seen at the link.
It does say in the article that it was “Updated 6:23 p.m. ET,” but there’s no editor’s note to suggest what was changed:
[PRESSTV] An American political analyst has rejected as "completely nonsense" the former Republican Senator Jeff Flake ...Republican junior senator from Arizona, elected in 2012. Prior to that he was a U.S. Representative for twelve years... ’s statement that at least 35 Republican senators would vote to impeach President Donald Trump ...the Nailer of NAFTA... and remove him from office if they could vote privately, saying that the numbers would definitely fail to reach a quorum for impeachment proceeding at the Senate.
Daniel Patrick Welch made the comments in an interview with Press TV on Saturday, after Flake ‐ a frequent critic of Trump ‐ predicted that close to three dozen Republican senators would back in private the Republican president’s impeachment.
"It’s nothing but public; It’s an absolutely and extremely public event, and there is no way on God’s green earth that 35 would vote publicly to convict this president, probably any president," Welch said.
"The whole thing is going nowhere, there is no way, you need 67 votes to convict in the Senate and there is absolutely no way to get there; so, it’s about the political theater, about chaining Trump to accept the narrative for the election campaign," he added.
If you can impeach a sitting President for being in the "wrong" party then what keeps you from Purging members of the "wrong" party from Congress, hmm?
The Final step after the Purge of Congress is the Enabling Acts(1933) because it is so, so easy to reach a two-thirds majority when you can impeach the Opposition at will. The Left loves "One Man, One Vote, One Time"...
[PRESSTV] US Senator Bernie Sanders ...The only first openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around... has attacked former Secretary of State and national security adviser Henry Kissinger over his "destructive" legacy after his meeting with Mike Pompeo.
The 2020 presidential candidate said in a tweet Sunday that in his administration, Kissinger’s advice would not be sought.
"Henry Kissinger was one of the most destructive Secretaries of State in the history of this country," the Vermont senator said. "A Sanders administration will not be taking advice from Henry Kissinger," Sanders added.
Kissinger's record is spotty. Negotiating the "peace" in Viet Nam is what he's know for. Of course the only thing the Viet Cong had to deal was the POW / Mia issue and nobody is actually satisfied with how that went down. Suppose we had a no deal end to the Indochina conflict. John McShame never comes home, we get new aerial refueling jets 20 years sooner and maybe a credible opponent to Bath House in 2008. Alternate history.

"A Sanders administration will not be taking advice from Henry Kissinger," Sanders added.
Unless of course you wish to invest in Communist China. Kissinger is your 'go to' person if that is your goal, he has been for decades.
[NYPOST] Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden ...When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'... ’s presidential campaign is asking top network executives to stop booking President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
Biden campaign officials Anita Dunn and Kate Bedingfield wrote a letter to network news presidents, chief anchors and the executive producers of the Sunday shows for ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and Fox News Channel, Deadline reported. Anita Dunn - she of the famous lizard-flicking tongue
"We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuilani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump ...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party... ," the letter said.
"While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation."
Because freedom of speech is so incompatible with "governability" of the proles.

Stopping that would take most of the anchors of CNN, MSNBC, and Shep Smith off the air as well, hmmmm? Fine, I accept the deal.
[THEHILL] Sen. Cory Spartacus Booker U.S. Senator-for-Life from Noo Joisey, formerly the mayor of Newark. Booker is a candidate for president in 2020, running on a platform of Make America Newark. He once wrote an essay on how to grope babes. He is noted for having an imaginary friend named T-Bone... (D-N.J.), a 2020 White House hopeful, said on Sunday that's he’s "offended" that Republicans are shifting attention to fellow Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden ...Failed seeker of the Democratic presidential nomination on multiple occasions, vice president under Barack Obama, giving it a last try in his dotage for 2020... as President Trump faces an impeachment inquiry.
"Joe Biden is a statesman. He is truly an honorable man," Booker said Sunday on CNN’s "State of the Union."
"I will be standing firmly in defense of Joe Biden throughout this process because this can in no way besmirch his character, his honor and his incredible service to this country over decades," Booker added.

A transcript of a call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shows Trump asking the foreign leader to investigate Biden and his son. No evidence has emerged to show wrongdoing by Joe Biden in his actions with Ukraine while his son Hunter Biden sat on a Ukrainian company's board.
A whistleblower complaint also accuses the Trump administration of placing transcripts of the call on a highly classified server.
"I am offended by the Republicans trying to shift the attention in this, in what is Trump’s scandal. This is a Trump scandal and potential violation of office," Booker said on Sunday. "It should in no way effect the vice president in pursuit of the nomination."
[TOWNHALL] Former presidential candidate Crooked Hillary Clinton ...former first lady, former secretary of state, former presidential candidate, Conqueror of Benghazi, Heroine of Tuzla, formerly described by her supporters as the smartest woman in the world, usually described by the rest of us as The Thing That Wouldn't Go Away... ripped into President Donald Trump ...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons...... for continuing to use her as a political punching bag at his rallies and in tweets, long after he won against her in the 2016 election.
"I believe he knows he’s an illegitimate president. He know, he knows, that there were a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out the way it did and I take responsibility for those parts of it that I should," Clinton said on "CBS Sunday Morning."
"It’s like applying for a job and getting 6 million of letters of recommendation and losing to a corrupt human tornado. And so, I know that he knows that this wasn't on the level," she continued, adding that is the reason, "he’s obsessed with me and I believe it’s a guilty conscience in so much as he has a conscience."
[BREITBART] Pope Francis celebrated the World Day of Moslem colonists Migrants and Refugees in the Vatican Sunday, insisting on the "moral duty" to welcome the stranger with the compassion exhibited by God himself.
The Lord "upholds the stranger as well as the widow and the orphan among his people," the pope said in his homily at morning Mass in St. Peter’s Square. "The Lord has a particular concern for foreigners, widows and orphans, for they are without rights, excluded and marginalized. This is why God tells the Israelites to give them special care."
Citing the biblical book of Exodus, Francis said that the God of Israel is the one who "executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing."
"This loving care for the less privileged is presented as a characteristic trait of the God of Israel and is likewise required, as a moral duty, of all those who would belong to his people," he said.
Yet this message "is not only about foreigners; it is about all those in existential peripheries who, together with migrants colonists and refugees, are victims of the throwaway culture," the pope clarified.
Utter nonsense. You cannot have "special consideration for foreigners", because YOUR NEIGHBORS ARE FOREIGNERS TO THOSE FOREIGNERS. So, then, where is the special consideration owed to your neighbors from those foreigners?
Dragging the Third World population into the civilized nations will just result in a global Third World, harming your neighbors and resulting in immeasurable misery and horrors.

but dragging the 3rd world nations (that is removing corruption and protectionism and idiot socialist policies) into first world status would help hundreds of times more people than helping refugees and would enrich us all.
Yet we treat the talk about the symptom (refugees) and do nothing about the infections themselves.
