It’s another witch hunt and Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Adam Schiff doesn’t mind wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on it like he has over the past four years.
The important aspect of this whole upside down scenario is that Schiff doesn’t really care about the national security issues that could potentially pose a significant danger to the United States or its citizens. He cares about one thing and one thing only: President Donald Trump.
Schiff – and those like him – are obsessed with Trump. In a way, he reminds me of the fictional character Captain Ahab in Herman Melville‘s Moby-Dick, written in 1851. Schiff is the captain of the committee, not the whaling ship. But just as importantly, Schiff is on a voyage to destroy President Trump, much like Ahab was obsessed over Moby Dick.
Schiff like Ahab is willing to lose almost anything to get Trump and in the end he just might allow the political whale to drag him to the depths of Washington D.C.’s swamp.
It is a tale often told in many novels and Schiff just happens to be that character. That Character. But we shouldn’t let him drag American taxpayer dollars and security down with him. Schiff has repeatedly lied about Trump and lied to the American people about the so-called evidence he had regarding the now-debunked Russia conspiracy.
Schiff, however, has never been held accountable for the numerous hoaxes he has perpetrated from the committee charged with oversight of our nation’s secrets, covert agencies and the overall security of the country from enemy states. Those enemy states include China, Russia, among many other nations that are using the chaos and divisions in our nation to their benefit.
I remember this May, when the House released 57 transcripts of interviews with former senior Obama officials and FBI regarding Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and the bureau’s investigation into Trump?
Lawmakers began the probe into the FBI’s handling of the investigation into the Trump campaign in January 2017. At the time, the House Committee on Intelligence was Chaired by Rep. Devin Nunes, and he worked diligently with investigators to uncover massive amounts of evidence that revealed malfeasance in the FBI, led to the firing of senior bureau officials and then was reinforced by investigations conducted by the DOJ’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Horowitz was not a Trump appointee but was appointed under President Obama.
Throughout all those years and despite numerous findings showing there was no collusion between Trump and Russia, including a final March, 2018 report, it didn’t matter.
Schiff continued to promise the American people that he had evidence proving the opposite.
In 2019, even after investigations cleared Trump, Schiff continued to lie to the American people. He said on ABC News at the time that there was evidence Trump conspired with Russia, saying there was “ample evidence of collusion in plain sight.”
“The obstruction of justice in particular in this case is far worse than anything that Richard Nixon did,” Schiff said. “I would say in every way this is more significant than Watergate…And the fact that a candidate for president and now president of the United States would not only not stand up and resist Russian interference in our election but would welcome it goes well beyond anything Nixon did.“
Where is the evidence? It was never there and he knew it. It didn’t matter because Schiff was using his position to target Trump.
Even though the March 2018 report found no evidence the Trump campaign conspired with Moscow, Schiff refused to allow those transcripts to go public until the White House threatened to release them first.
When that died down Schiff shifted to the Ukraine conspiracy, throwing his alleged whistleblowers into the spotlight, like Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman who used his position, along with others at the National Security Counsel to spy on Trump’s phone calls. Those classified phone calls, particularly the one with the Ukraine president, became the focal point of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s, and Schiff’s impeachment parade against Trump.
It rightfully failed and the Senate exonerated Trump but it tore the nation even further apart.
Moreover, millions of taxpayer dollars and time have been wasted by Schiff and his committee, which should be focused on real enemy states, actors and important oversight duties.
Schiff didn’t care then and now he doesn’t now, as he’s now pushing a new hoax during an election year and hoping that he can do whatever he can to tear Trump’s administration apart. He will do so even at the peril of the nation.
Schiff, like many Democrats and never-Trumpers, hates Trump more than they love America.
This new whistleblower is allegedly connected reporting all of his concerns to Schiff about issues with the Department of Homeland Security. He alleges that a reprisal complaint lists “serious wrongdoing” and an effort to hide reports about Russian interference into U.S. elections.
Once again, Russia, Russia, Russia.
“The whistleblower retaliation complaint filed by former Acting Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy outlines grave and disturbing allegations that senior White House and Department of Homeland Security officials improperly sought to politicize, manipulate, and censor intelligence in order to benefit President Trump politically,” Schiff said in a letter to Brian Murphy’s attorney. “This puts our nation and its security at grave risk.”
Really Schiff? A whistleblowers politicized allegations is putting our nation at risk? Our nation is at risk because you, along with your cronies in the Democratic party, have failed to do anything for the American people beyond your one-track Trump mind.
Think about it – beyond Trump. – has Schiff done anything that sticks out? Have there been any revelations that have shown his leadership in the Committee has been exemplary and that he’s doing the best for the American people?
What about COVID-19 “China’s virus” and how China, not Trump, failed the nation. What about Russia’s real interference in the 2016 election by leaking disinformation to former British spy Christopher Steele, who was using DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign funds to pay for his Russian sources. I think that’s something that we should look into.
What about the numerous lied that former CIA Director John Brennan, along with former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress?
What about the current state of Al-Qaeda, ISIS and other extremists groups that are still targeting the United States?
What about Schiff’s own lies? Will Schiff ever actually be held accountable for those lies and for the wasted tax dollars spent chasing unicorns around the D.C. swamp to target Trump?
I doubt it. But remember what kind of person Schiff really is and realize it won’t be long before Schiff sinks his own ship.

Shanghai: China’s Potemkin Village
Following a recent outbreak of COVID-19, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has imposed a month-long draconian lockdown on the residents of Shanghai. The CCP has used the outbreak to persecute its own citizens, including through forced evictions and quarantines, and placing alarms on doors to prevent COVID-19 people from leaving their homes. The harsh measures have resulted in food and healthcare shortages and separation of families.
But of course, we wouldn’t know that by reading the CCP-run press readily available in the United States. Instead of presenting the facts, the CCP engages in a comprehensive propaganda campaign that props up Shanghai as a Chinese Potemkin village. The CCP media asserts that China’s actions in Shanghai are benevolent and wise, while Western criticism is a product of malice. Chinese state-run media also insists that the Shanghai lockdown promotes economic stability in China and the world.
Claim 1: China Has the Best Policy for Combating COVID-19
The CCP media portray the Shanghai lockdown as the best and ideal policy. As cited by a XinhuaNet editorial, “China’s dynamic zero-COVID approach” is “the best option to save lives,” according to a “Rwandan researcher and publisher,” “…a miracle for us to learn,” according to a Kenyan scholar, and “a very ideal response,” according to Ethiopia’s National COVID-19 Response Task Force Coordinator. According to CCP media, Chinese citizens have greeted the Shanghai lockdown warmly, even with “[a] mixed sense of intensity, unity and hopefulness,” according to China Daily.
Claim 2: The West Hypocritically Defames China
The CCP press also accuses the West of lying about the Shanghai lockdown, and using COVID policies for nefarious ends. According to XinhuaNet, “Shanghai…has never imposed what Western media described as a ‘lockdown.’” Other CCP editorials actually accuse the West of malice. One Global Times editorial claims that the lockdown “has been deliberately exaggerated by the West.” Another Global Times editorial asserts that the Western approach of “coexisting with the virus” amounts to a way “…to drive out a large number of the vulnerable people with low immunity,” and a form of “cruel social Darwinism.”
Claim 3: China’s COVID Policies Result in an Economic Windfall to China and the World
The CCP also portrays the lockdown as necessary to achieve great economic growth in China and beyond. One Global Times editorial, while conceding that the lockdown amounted to a “sealing-off,” it is “a temporary measure to better resume work and production and to make the economy and society function more effectively. Its effectiveness has been proven.” According to another Global Times editorial, China’s policy is “widely considered to be the best strategy…to both contain the epidemic and ensure stable economic development.”
In an Orwellian fashion, Chinese press claims that China is solving, not causing, the world’s economic problems. According to XinhuaNet, “China has played a decisive role in stabilizing the global economy and resuming the supply chain disrupted by COVID-19.” Citing a Bloomberg article, the same XinhuaNet editorial claims that China “has prevented a huge number of deaths at home and ensured that everything from iPhones and Teslas to fertilizer and car parts continues to flow to the rest of the world.” Chinese citizens, of course, are collateral damage: Ji Qiwei, vice-general manager of SAIC Motor Passenger Vehicle, stated that “The domestic market may be impacted a little by the COVID-19 outbreak this year, but our export market will continue to see strong growth,” according to China Daily.
While the world continues to suffer economic and human damage as a result of COVID-19, China continues to revise history regarding its role. Through its propaganda in its English publications of Xinhua, China Daily, and Global Times, China seeks to portray itself as a benevolent force in the fight against the virus.
