Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), and other House Republicans introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday.
Meadows and Jordan argued that the Department of Justice (DOJ) had problematic decision-making during the 2016 presidential campaign and failed to comply with House oversight requests. The House conservatives also chastised the DOJ and Rosenstein for withholding “embarrassing documents,” knowingly hiding information from Congress, abusing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, and “failure to comply with Congressional subpoenas.”
The Constitution empowers the House to impeach any officer of the executive or judicial branches. However, that only occurs in rare instances. The House only requires a simple majority of of the legislative chamber, or roughly 218 votes, to impeach a member of the executive or judicial branch. If the House were to impeach Rosenstein, then the Senate will require a two-thirds majority to remove him from office.
Jordan said in a statement on Wednesday, “The DOJ is keeping information from Congress. Enough is enough. It’s time to hold Mr. Rosenstein accountable for blocking Congress’s constitutional oversight role.”
The CDC has created a new policy to keep track of Coronavirus deaths that includes any case where the virus “caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.” Confirmed lab tests are not required! [Actually, that has been the case all along, but this announcement makes it official policy.]
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is of the same persuasion. He said, “You know the old expression about snitches. Well, in this case, snitches get rewards. … We want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe.”
The lockdown across most of the US has put labor markets in free fall and forced millions of people out of work – and with that comes hunger. After hunger and loss of utilities, come riots. Then martial law. Do you think those who called the lockdown don’t know this?
The US FDA has approved a new test to detect COVID-19. The blood test detects antibodies to the virus rather than the virus itself. Neither the false positives nor the genuine positives will be a measure of risk but, none the less, they will be used as proof that the ‘deadly’ pandemic is spreading.
Dr. Colleen Smith, who produced a video about mass deaths at Elmhurst Hospital, attended the NYU School of Medicine as a “Simulation Fellow” and gives lectures on medical-crisis simulations, raising the reasonable question whether her video shows a real or simulated event.
The Mises Institute article states: “Neither the Trump administration nor Congress has the legal authority to shut down American life absent at least baseline due process.” Ron Paul says the pandemic is being used by politicians to spend money with wild abandon and to take away civil liberties.
While police have stopped arresting people for certain crimes, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told citizens that efforts to deal with the pandemic included vigilance against “hate crimes”. Don’t call the police for protection against prowling or theft, but be sure call if you see “hate”.
A major concern is the faulty pandemic computer models used at imperial College in the UK that projected millions of deaths when, in truth, Covid-19 death rates are similar to the common flu. They say the coronavirus is no more dangerous than a bad cold.
Jon Rappoport, who has studied epidemics and pandemics for 35 years, marshals the evidence in this series of podcasts that the Covid-19 pandemic is one of the most colossal deceptions the world has ever seen. This is investigative journalism at its best.
A man living in a smoke shop fired shots after three juveniles wearing masks broke into the store to rob it, and he wounded one of them. The man who fired the shots is in prison now without bail and faces up to 20 years for protecting himself.
The CDC website states, “Among 457 ICU admissions and 1,037 non-ICU hospitalizations, 358 (78%) and 732 (71%), respectively occurred among persons with one or more reported underlying health condition.”
Daniel McAdams says the number of people dying from COVID-19 are very low, yet Anthony Fauci is claiming that 100,000 to 200,000 people are going to die if Trump puts an end to lockdown. Fauci says that, if the president does nothing, two-million people will die.

US Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) said the dismissal of two key investigators, Andrew Weissmann and Zainab Ahmad, at the start of March may be due to bias as they knew Christopher Steele, the author of the discredited dossier, was “desperate to stop Trump.”
Kimberley Strassel of The Wall Street Journal tweeted, “It’s great that the FISA court slammed the FBI and acknowledged the obvious–that deceiving a surveillance court is a grave thing. But the follow-on order is pathetic, as it is essentially: Please tell us how you intend to do better. Really?”
Sessions agreed to review the Hillary Clinton email case with the help of Rod Rosenstein, his Deputy AG — but Rosenstein is a witness to those crimes and may be compromised. [It is not likely that a meaningful investigation will ensue.]
