That’s some serious fear-mongering.
STEYER: “We are in the fight of our lives. Everything is on the table in 2020. They think so too, because they think that if they lose in 2020 that they are — they’re going to have to — the rules are going to be fair and they’ll never win again. And they’re right. If we win in 2020, they are done forever.
But it’s scary for us, too, because if they win, literally it could be the end of the world.
Settle down, Sleepy Joe.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has signed a bill requiring all University of California and California State University campuses to offer chemical abortion to students for free.
Senate Bill 24 – the “College Student Right to Access Act” – passed the California Legislature in September, giving Newsom about one month to either sign or veto the bill. Prior to Friday, when Newsom signed the bill into law, every indicator was that he would sign it.
… “As other states and the federal government go backward, restricting reproductive freedom, in California we are moving forward, expanding access and reaffirming a woman’s right [to]choose. We’re removing barriers to reproductive health – increasing access on college campuses and using technology to modernize how patients interact with providers,” Newsom said in a news release.
Previously, former California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a similar bill. California state Sen. Connie Leyva introduced the bill that Newsom signed.
Settle down, Sleepy Joe.
BIDEN: “No one, no one has asserted my son did a single thing wrong. No one has asserted that I’ve done anything wrong except the lying president. That’s the only thing. That’s the focus.”

Better watch out, Democrats will try to impeach you.
Via Fox News:
Amid House Democrats’ push for an impeachment inquiry against President Trump, a Republican lawmaker plans to introduce legislation to turn the spotlight on the Biden family’s dealings with Ukraine.
“I’m not asking for a foreign government to investigate him, I want the United States Congress to investigate him,” Rep. Bradley Byrne, of Alabama, told “Fox & Friends” on Monday.
The resolution, expected to be filed Tuesday, calls for several House committees to formally investigate Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukrainian firm Burisma Holdings during the period in which his father served as vice president.
The investigation will look into whether those dealings resulted in improper conflicts of interests and whether Hunter’s work made an impact on U.S. foreign policy, a foreign government, or a foreign entity’s response.
Schiff always ‘schiff-ting’ the facts. And he doesn’t even think we need the whistleblower to testify either (no that he might expose the contacts with Schiff).

The goalposts they are a’ changing.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on Sunday that there need not have been a desire for a quid pro quo agreement between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for their phone discussion to lead to the president’s impeachment.
Democrats claim Trump was withholding millions in U.S. aid, which he wanted to exchange for Ukranian help investigating the business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, who made upwards of a million dollars from a gas company in the country. Now, Schiff says no quid pro quo is necessary.
TRUMP: “The radical Democrats policies are crazy. The politicians are corrupt. Their candidates are terrible. They know they can’t win an election so they are pursuing an illegal, invalid, and unconstitutional bullshit impeachment.”
How dare they!
blockquote>Newsweek reporter Rosie McCall offered a conspiracy theory as to how a 16-year-old environmental activist somehow failed to win the Nobel Peace Prize this year: “Greta Thunberg Snubbed for Nobel Peace Prize by Committee Run by Norway, One of the World’s Biggest Oil and Natural Gas Exporters.”
This new theory comes courtesy of a magazine fresh off breaking the news that opening tanning salons in urban neighborhoods were a plot to give gay men skin cancer, or something.
The Nobel Committee has surprised oddsmakers by not picking 16-year-old Greta Thunberg to win the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.
The five-member Norwegian panel instead announced on Friday that Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed had won the award, “for his efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation, and for in particular his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighboring Eritrea,” a statement said.
Thunberg has become the figurehead of the youth climate movement after skipping school to protest outside the Swedish Parliament in August 2018, inspiring the waves of student strikes that followed.
Over the last year, she has (among other things) led a Global Climate Strike spanning 150 countries, graced the cover of Time Magazine as a ‘Next Generation Leader’ and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in a yacht to speak to lawmakers in Washington and New York.
One of those countries is the nation that effectively decides who wins the Nobel Peace Prize each year — Norway, where the five members selected to serve on the committee are chosen by the Norwegian parliament. The country has a complex relationship with greenhouse gas-emitting fossil fuels, which historically have been (and arguably continues to be) a major source of Norway’s wealth.
Damn right we do.
TRUMP: “We reject globalism. We embrace patriotism. We believe that every American citizen deserves a government that is loyal to them. The Democrat party and the extreme radical left are trying to abolish the distinction between citizens and noncitizens.”
Rand Paul: “Four senators, Democrats, wrote a letter to the Ukrainian government and said, ‘If you don't keep investigating Trump we may reconsider our bipartisan support for your aid … Someone needs to actually, in an objective way, evaluate [the] letter … That's a threat’” pic.twitter.com/59kyjIN46N

And Trump didn’t even do what these Senators did – he didn’t threaten them, he didn’t threaten to hold back aid and he simply asked for them to see if the investigation was properly closed. Unlike this.
Via Daily Wire:
Paul’s remarks about the four Democratic Senators who wrote a threatening letter to Ukraine comes from an article in The Washington Post which noted that three Democratic Senators – Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) and Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) – “wrote a letter to Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Yuriy Lutsenko, expressing concern at the closing of four investigations they said were critical to the Mueller probe.”
“In the letter, they implied that their support for U.S. assistance to Ukraine was at stake,” the article continued. “Describing themselves as ‘strong advocates for a robust and close relationship with Ukraine,’ the Democratic senators declared, ‘We have supported [the] capacity-building process and are disappointed that some in Kyiv appear to have cast aside these [democratic] principles to avoid the ire of President Trump,’ before demanding Lutsenko ‘reverse course and halt any efforts to impede cooperation with this important investigation.’”
The fourth Democratic senator to whom Paul was referring was Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy.
In September, The Hill’s John Solomon wrote that Murphy “delivered a pointed message to Ukraine’s new president, Volodymyr Zelensky” that “Ukraine currently enjoyed bipartisan support for its U.S. aid but that could be jeopardized if the new president acquiesced to requests by President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani to investigate past corruption allegations involving Americans, including former Vice President Joe Biden’s family.”
“The implied message did not require an interpreter for Zelensky to understand: Investigate the Ukraine dealings of Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and you jeopardize Democrats’ support for future U.S. aid to Kiev,” Solomon concluded.
‘Crushed Bodies And Shattered Bones:’ China’s Xi Jinping Threatens Dissidents Amid Hong Kong Protests
Not sounding good.
Chinese President Xi Jinping raised the specter of a violent crackdown on protesters against the Communist government, as Beijing rebuffs international condemnation for human rights abuses.
“Anyone attempting to split China in any part of the country will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones,” Xi said Sunday, per state-run media.
That warning was issued from Nepal, where thousands of Tibetan Buddhists have taken refuge from Chinese Communist rule. But the blanket threat is likely a message to the protesters in Hong Kong and Western-allied leaders of Taiwan, whom Chinese officials regard as “separatists” and advocates of “secessionism” from the mainland government.
“And any external forces backing such attempts at dividing China will be deemed by the Chinese people as pipe-dreaming,” Xi also said.
Hong Kong has been rocked by protests for months, as dissidents were outraged by the Beijing-backed local government’s attempt to pass an extradition bill that would allow mainland Chinese authorities to take custody of Hong Kong residents based on flimsy evidence. The proposed bill tapped into deeper suspicions that China is trying to undermine the autonomy that was promised to Hong Kong when the United Kingdom relinquished sovereignty over the former colony in 1997.
While Bergdahl goes free.
Retired Army Master Sgt. Mark Allen has died 10 years after he was shot in the head while searching for deserter Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan.
Allen died on Saturday at the age of 46, according to funeral information posted online.
He had been unable to walk or speak since he was a sniper shot him in the head in July 2009 while he was looking for Bergdahl, who had walked off his base in Afghanistan and was held by the Taliban for five years, the Walton Tribune reported.

This is what they have been trying to distract from. Let’s hope it nails them, but good.
The deal is holding and stopping people in Mexico. It may not be an actual wall they’ve paid for but it’s something of a virtual wall now.
TAPACHULA, Mexico (AP) — Mexican officials broke up a caravan of around 2,000 migrants that had set out from southern Mexico Saturday in the hopes of reaching the United States, amid increasing difficulty obtaining permission to pass through Mexico.
Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula, Chiapas early in the morning had been held up in this city just north of Guatemala for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities. The migrants are originally from Central America, Africa and the Caribbean.
They left their home countries sometimes because of violence, or simply in search of a better life.
“I want to pass through Mexico, I don’t want to live here,” said Amado Ramirez, a migrant from Honduras who said he had been living on the streets of Tapachula with his young children and wife, hoping for a transit visa from Mexican officials. “We’re at a standstill.”
