Hon. Adam Schiff (D-Dumbass)

The Bug-Eyed Bitch of Burbank is at it again.

Schiff: Impeachment is on the table if Trump pressured Ukraine to probe Biden

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff came the closest he ever has to endorsing President Trump’s impeachment during an interview Sunday.

​The California Democrat told CNN’s Jake Tapper he believed that impeachment should be a “remedy of last resort, not first resort.”

Schiff then pointed to reports that ​claimed Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic political rival Joe Biden, while withholding military aid from the country.

“That may be the only remedy that is coequal to the evil that that conduct represents,” Schiff said of impeachment.

The next steps for Schiff include hearing from the acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, who has agreed to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

“We are going to make sure we get that complaint,” ​he added.

The White House has so far stonewalled Congress from getting a whistleblower complaint filed last month ​with the inspector general of the intelligence committee, which reportedly detailed a disturbing conversation the president had with a world leader – and also contained a “promise.”

The Wall Street Journal reported that during a July phone call with Zelensky, Trump asked the leader eight times to work with his personal lawyer, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, ​to investigate Biden’s son.

“It may be that we do have to move forward with this extraordinary remedy if indeed the president is, at the same time withholding vital military assistance, he is trying to leverage that to obtain impermissible help with his presidential campaign,” Schiff said.

He also pointed out the political reality: even if the Democratic-controlled House voted to impeach Trump, the Republican-led Senate would likely vote to keep him in office.

“They have shown their willingness to carry the president’s baggage no matter how soiled its contents,” Schiff said.

[…]

Schiff added that he had spoken to a number of his Democratic colleagues this week.

“This seems different,” he noted.

“And we may very well have crossed the Rubicon here,” Schiff said.

If the Democrats have crossed the Rubicon, this will not end well. People like Piece of Schiff should not use idioms they don’t understand.

Julius Caesar’s crossing the Rubicon river was an event in January 49 BC that precipitated the Roman Civil War, which ultimately led to Caesar becoming dictator and the rise of the imperial era of Rome. Caesar had been appointed to a governorship over a region that ranged from southern Gaul to Illyricum (but not Italy). As his term of governorship ended, the Roman Senate ordered Caesar to disband his army and return to Rome. He was explicitly ordered not to bring his army across the Rubicon river, which was at that time a northern boundary of Italy. In January of 49 BC, Caesar brought the 13th legion across the river, which the Roman government considered insurrection, treason, and a declaration of war on the Roman Senate. According to some authors, he is said to have uttered the phrase “alea iacta est”—the die is cast—as his army marched through the shallow river.

When Caesar crossed the Rubicon it set off the Roman Civil War, a four-year conflict that ended the Roman Republic. Is that really what the Democrats want?

In 45 BC Julius Caesar was victorious. Then he made himself dictator. Does Piece of Schiff think he’s Julius Caesar in this drama?

A year later, in 44 BC, Julius Caesar was assassinated. Does Piece of Schiff think he’s Julius Caesar in this drama?

I think it is fair to say that crossing the Rubicon did not work out well for Julius Caesar in the long run. It didn’t work out so well for Rome either.

I will leave you with a bit of advice that Ralph Waldo Emerson gave to Oliver Wendell Holmes:

“When you strike at a king, you must kill him.”

    Just lived out a nightmare. There was a snake in my house, a very poisonous coral 🐍 😵😨😰 I almost stepped on it 😬😱

    Thank goodness hubby is here, he killed it. We had been down at my mom’s. The puppies were loose in the house, our daughter was in her room. Thank God, they didn’t stumble upon the snake. I’m also glad we found it before it wandered the house. It was in the back bathroom, the one the grandkids use. I was headed back there to clean that bathroom because the kids trashed it……and the 🐍 was in the doorway. There is a French door just outside that bathroom that leads outside. Hubby assumes the snake slithered in under the door, as it was a very small snake.

    Coral snakes are small anyway, this one appeared to be a baby, which has me completely FREAKED OUT 😱😱😱 It was about 10 inches long. Apparently they hatch in early fall, are about 7 inches and fully venomous when hatched. Hubby shrugs, so what. We’re surrounded by woods, what are the odds there is a nest in the woods.

    My husband is annoyed with me, he’s certain it simple wandered in under the door. I am scared shitless there is a nest in or under our house. I want to go through everything in the house, everything like pull up the vanity and look underneath, move all furniture, empty every cabinet, drawer and closet……or just move. He just keeps telling me to calm down and stop being ridiculous. If there is a baby, there is a mommy and most likely siblings 😨😬 I don’t know if I will ever sleep again. I have a feeling I’m going to go on a mad cleaning and purging spree.

    I honestly could have gone my entire life without finding a snake inside my house……really a fulfilling life, this is not a bucket list item. I paid my critter dues in my 20’s when a cougar was in my garage…..I thought it was a stray cat or dog out there, boy was I wrong! This is a real life nightmare for me, apparently not for hubby…..as I type this he snores 🙄

    • taw46 says:

      omg, I don’t blame you, I would be ready to move. I hate snakes, and a coral snake, ffs. He’s probably right, just the one got in. But I would be like you, worrying. And stuff something along the bottom of that French door!

      • Somebody says:

        Taw, the door is only a year old. It fits tightly, but this thing was tiny it was a baby…..10 inches long, a little bigger around than an earthworm. Hard to keep something like that out. Hubby takes the dogs out via that door, so it could have gotten in that way.

        I use the front door. I don’t like going out back because the woods are right there and I’m a scaredy cat. There are always critters moving around out in the woods and it freaks me out. It’s usually an armadillo or opossum. At night there are tons of owls hooting, it’s creepy, hence why I go out the front and down the driveway. I always expect jack the ripper or some freak with a chain saw to jump out of the woods, not to mention 🐍 or a gator or a coyote.😱

        True story, I’ve lived in FL my entire life and this is only the second coral snake I’ve come across. Lots of king snakes, which startle until you run through the rhyme and realize it’s safe. Only the 2nd time…..rhyme made me go SHIT! Generally coral snakes are very reclusive……unless they wander into your house 🙄

    • Constance says:

      Yeah, I’m on your side in this. Who knows what’s going on but why would anyone assume you found the only snake soon after it wandered in? Maybe you could borrow a dog or cat who tracks down slithery invasive critters.

      • Somebody says:

        Coral snakes are related to Cobras. Their venom is a neurotoxin. There aren’t any dogs or cats that would “sniff” them out, because they’d be killed by the venom. They are very deadly, however they are very reclusive and their fangs are in the back of their mouth…….so if you leave them alone you’re fine. Obviously we didn’t leave this one alone, it had to die.

        My biggest worry is that mommy nested under my house and her babies are leaving the nest via a crack in my slab. I have cracks, they were filled with epoxy but maybe more have formed. Honestly I just want to rip the house apart. It’s 20 years old, we need to remodel anyway. 🤔

        I’m going to put on heavy gloves tomorrow and pull everything out of that bathroom vanity tomorrow. Probably throw it in the trash. It’s crap my oldest daughter left when she moved out 6 years ago, curlers and crap. Then I’m going to pry the kickplate off and look underneath. After that I’ll start clearing crap out of her old bedroom she left in the closet. All of it in the trash. I’ll work out from there through the family room and the rest of the house. Massive purge and I’m going to move all the furniture and clean underneath. Daughter just moved into her 1st house. I offered to pack up and bring all her carp to her, she informed me she didn’t want it. Funny just a year or so ago she did, when she got her own place……and now? I don’t want or need all that crap in my house 😒

        If nothing else I’ll at least end up with a very clean and much less cluttered house. Added bonus, I’ll probably wear myself out enough to sleep.

          If you have a Runnings store or a store with farm supplies, you might be able to get a snare, for peace of mind, if nothing else.

        • Constance says:

          Well, that’s a brave plan. I would abandon everything and move to a condo on at least the 20th floor of a new cement building. Or move to Maui, Hawaii doesn’t have any snakes. I hate snakes!

          • lateblum says:

            I’m with you, Constance. I wouldn’t be able to stay another minute. Then I’d hire Smithereen or some other exterminator to come and do their thing before. I’d even think of returning. Of course, they’d have to give me absolute proof that they had taken care of the problem.

        • swanspirit says:

          I would be totally freaked out. It’s bad enough when I see a spider, or ants. We had a mouse a few years ago, and I put up and put every bit of food that wasn’t in the fridge, or cans, in mouse proof containers. Then I set a trap, baited it with peanut butter, and got that vermin. No more mice. Also, I scrubbed everywhere with bleach. I know some people think they are cute, but they leave droppings and urine everywhere they go!. Ewwwew disgusting.
          A venomous snake? Oh my Goddess no. You have my comp!eye sympathy.

      Our dogs will snoop around in shrubbery and come in with frogs and geckos who hitch a ride on their fur. It’s possible it came in that way.

    All these “investigations” by the Dem’s with the assurance that THIS ONE is the one that will bring Trump down via impeachment.

      State Department official: “At least half the money that we send to Ukraine ends up in the pockets and secret bank accounts of the elected Ukrainians we send it to.”

      Mykola Zlochevsky: “Does he have any experience in the oil and gas business?”
      VP Biden: “Nope.”
      Mykola Zlochevsky: “What job do you want me to give him?”
      VP Biden: “Don’t give him a job. Put him on your board of directors and pay him $80,000.”
      Mykola Zlochevsky: “$80k a year?”
      VP Biden: “$80k a month. And don’t give me any malarky about it being too much. It’s a big pie, and you can afford to share a little slice.”
      Mykola Zlochevsky: “No problem. We would be proud to have your son serve on our board of directors.”

    So, Amy’s march was yesterday and nobody noticed ? LOL.

  18. DeniseVB says:

    Hey, hey, Ho, Hum, just another anti-Trump march I guess. They seem to be making excuses for a low turn out and no media interest, especially that they were “too polite”. Lol, not even antifa was interested in them.

  19. Mothy67 says:

    There is almost no chatter about the Emmy’s. GoT won drama, Fleabag comedy,.
    Black gay guy won actor. Nothing else seemed evenly remotely interesting.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I fell asleep scanning the “winners” last night. Who? What? Just Hollywood awarding their SJW heroes little trophies 🙂 Used to be annual Must See TV, all the award shows have fallen hard because they can’t keep their mouths shut. I recognized some names though I have never watched their projects.

      • elliesmom says:

        There were some categories where I hadn’t seen a single one of the entries. But something did jump out at me looking at the lists of nominees, and that’s how few shows aired on the old broadcast stations. What passes for quality TV these days just isn’t showing up on “free TV”.

  21. DeniseVB says:

    Shaking your fists at the Trump Hotel should be the end for him now ! This march made no sense to me. Were no Dem candidates available to partake in Shame! Shame! ? At least a few fuzzy-wuzzy congress critters to speak to the anti-Trump troops? The Squad ? Bette? Reiner? Rosie? No Hollywood haters available? They only seemed to have Martina the tennis player. Woot ! So that sounded like a march of angry lesbians. We The People, my ass.

  22. DeniseVB says:

    This is happening now? Nothing says save the earth like fumes from stalled vehicles for a couple of hours. Poor Amy, THIS is getting tons of media coverage, lol.
