McCarthy moves to censure Schiff
« on: October 16, 2019, 12:17:12 PM »

https://www.republicanleader.gov/the-censure-resolution-of-chairman-adam-schiff/

Republican House leader has initiated a process to censure House Intelligence Committee Chair Schiff on the grounds that Schiff has used his official position to mislead the American public and to enter false information in the public record.

Should be interesting.  [popcorn]

I always love how the RINOs and their kith and kin always are going to do "the right thing" when they are in the minority.  When they get in charge they conveniently forget about it.

No surprise
Democrats in the House turned aside a GOP-led privileged resolution to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Monday in a straight party-line 218-185 vote
I see no reason to give more power to the state when it can reside with the individual.

McCarthy = George Armstrong Custer.
Schiff = Chief Crazy Horse.


Both McCarthy and Custer should have known the  numbers were not right for them.

Yes,  it does show the impeachment vote .... was it in doubt? [popcorn]

I have no doubt that at least a handful of "Republicans" will vote with the Democrats come impeachment vote time.

If Trump really has done something impeachable, hopefully all of them vote for it. If not, hopefully enough democrats vote against it.

Well the next stunt provides much better theater:

House Republicans briefly shut down a closed-door meeting Wednesday by storming the room where lawmakers were questioning a Defense Department official involving the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
I see no reason to give more power to the state when it can reside with the individual.

“As states are a collection of individual men, which ought we to respect most: the rights of the people composing them, or the artificial beings resulting from the composition?” asked Alexander Hamilton. “Nothing could be more preposterous or absurd than to sacrifice the former to the latter.”

I'm assuming Democrats are applauding the sit in? :)

Though I think "sit-ins" from either side are kinda dumb.

People who believe silly things about moral busybodies are most likely to be silly moral busybodies. Or something.

I like the CS Lewis quote about moral busy bodies.

Oddly, I was arguing on fb this morning and had the perfect opportunity to use it but decided not to go there.
The wish not to believe can influence as strongly as the wish to believe.

Who can escape their own cognitive biases?
