Jenny Beth’s Journal: It’s Time for ‘Shifty’ Schiff to Go

As chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Adam Schiff has abused his power, misused and wasted taxpayer money for his partisan political agenda, and has lied repeatedly. RealClear Politics has Jenny Beth’s commentary on Adam Schiff’s long list of violations—some that have been going on for years: In early April of 2017 – less than three months after President Trump took office, and before his removal of then-FBI Director James Comey led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel – Congressman Schiff was the butt of a prank phone call by Russian radio comics who offered to give him what they ...

Yet, according to the polling industry’s best practitioners, too many of our fellow citizens out there – tens of millio...

Ten years have gone by and the tea party movement is more important than ever! We started as a group of citizens fed up with the bad behavior in Washington and soon became a nationwide grassroots organization. It seems only yesterday that patriots all around the country were watching CNBC business news editor Rick Santelli rant about the housing crisis bailouts and saying everything that Americans were feeling. Hours after his rant, the tea party began its planning. In those early days, we organized a conference call, organized rallies, and got the word out. On February 27, 2009, the movement was coordinated across 40 different cities and people ...
