The poll asked whether voters would “approve or disapprove of the Senate removing President Trump from office?”

Among registered voters in general, 42% of voters strongly approve of Trump’s removal, 9% somewhat approve, 4% somewhat disapprove, and 38% strongly disapprove.

Looking at evangelical voters, 34% would strongly approve of the president’s removal, 9% somewhat approve, 4% somewhat disapprove, and 49% strongly disapprove.

The poll, which sampled “1,387 likely voters” and had a margin of error of 3 points, comes after a mini-civil war has broken out among evangelical Christians over the impeachment of Trump.

Trump Blasts Christian Magazine That Called For His Removal

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump blasted a prominent Christian magazine on Friday, a day after it published an editorial arguing that he should be removed from office because of his “blackened moral record.”

Trump tweeted that Christianity Today, an evangelical magazine founded by the late Rev. Billy Graham, “would rather have a Radical Left nonbeliever, who wants to take your religion & your guns, than Donald Trump as your President.”

The magazine “has been doing poorly and hasn’t been involved with the Billy Graham family for many years,” Trump wrote. He questioned whether the magazine would prefer a Democratic president “to guard their religion.”

Some of his strongest evangelical supporters, including Graham’s son, rallied to his side and against the publication. Their pushback underscored Trump’s hold on the evangelical voting bloc that helped propel him into office and suggested the editorial would likely do little to shake that group’s loyalty.

Rev. Franklin Graham, who now leads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and prayed at Trump’s inauguration, tweeted Friday that his father would be “disappointed” in the magazine.

Federal Appeals Court Strikes Down ObamaCare Rule, Setting Up Supreme Court Showdown

Via Fox News:

A federal appeals court upheld a lower court’s ruling that a key aspect of the ObamaCare law is unconstitutional — setting up another likely Supreme Court showdown in a presidential election year.

The 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals by a 2-1 vote concluded the original law’s key funding mechanism known as the individual mandate — requiring most Americans to purchase health insurance or face a tax penalty — was properly eliminated by Congress and therefore the entire law could not be enforced.

The appeals panel sent the issue back to the lower court to decide whether other aspects of the Affordable Care Act must fall.

The three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans agreed with Texas-based U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor’s finding that the insurance requirement was rendered unconstitutional when, in 2017, Congress eliminated a tax penalty on people without insurance.

Dem Rep. Jackie Speier: Trump Can Be ‘Impeached Yet Again’

VIDEO HERE 

No joke.

SPEIER: “The most important thing that should happen is that the President recognizes that his conduct is criminal in many respects and that if he wants to not be impeached yet again, he has got to be reined in. I think the six-page letter that you just referred to suggests that he’s not willing to do anything differently. He has such contempt for the rule of law that he has established himself as a clear and present danger to the security of our country.”

Hallmark Channel Caves Again to Militant Degenerates

The Hallmark Channel, a lonely island of old-fashioned wholesomeness in a sea of degeneracy, continues to sink beneath the waves. Recently, we read that it had succumbed to LGBT bullies and plans to feature unnatural sexual relationships in its famous Christmas movies. Now it has caved again.

Via Entertainment Weekly:

Following intense criticism, Hallmark CEO Mike Perry is apologizing after the Hallmark Channel pulled multiple ads for the wedding planning site Zola in which same-sex couples were shown kissing.

“We are truly sorry for the hurt and disappointment this has caused,” Perry [whimpered] in a statement obtained by EW. “Across our brand, we will continue to look for ways to be more inclusive and celebrate our differences.”

That is, to drive away their viewers at the behest of militant activists like GLAAD, which rallied social justice warriors against them for pulling the tasteless and immoral commercials.

The statement also notes that the “Hallmark Channel will be reaching out to Zola to reestablish our partnership and reinstate the commercials,” and will be working with GLAAD on LGBTQ inclusion in its brands.

Gay militants now call the shots at the Hallmark Channel. Welcome to utopia.

Abject surrender to moonbat social engineers is no guarantee of good treatment. As many children learn on the playground, if you move when bullies push you, they will push you more.

This craven betrayal is unlikely to mollify actress Hilarie Burton, who has been screeching on Twitter that “bigotry comes from the top and permeates the whole deal over there [at the Hallmark Channel].”

No matter how extreme the Hallmark Channel’s future attempts to make obsequious obeisance to “inclusion,” until they stand their ground, they will never get the bullies off their back.

Merry Christmas, Trump You’re Being “Impeached” Today ( 12/18/2019 )

Gillian Brockell, The Washington Post

President Bill Clinton stood at a lectern in the Rose Garden, surrounded by supporters, including his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton. The votes had been counted, and the news had arrived: He was being impeached.

“I hope there will be a constitutional and fair means of resolving this matter in a prompt manner,” he said. “Meanwhile, I will continue to do the work of the American people.”

He decried the “excessive partisanship” and “obsessive animosity” of the day. Then he turned around, shook hands, walked back into the White House and threw a Christmas party.

In an amazing episode of “history repeats itself,” the House is expected to vote to impeach President Donald Trump on Dec. 18 – one day short of the 21st anniversary of the House voting to impeach Clinton on Dec. 19, 1998. Both arrived awkwardly in the holiday season known for “glad tidings” and “goodwill toward men.”

How Jabra’s Amazing New Earbuds Measure Up to AirPods Pro

SOURCE: Gizmodo

For the past month or so, I’ve been carrying two sets of earbuds with me everywhere I go. In a compact, instantly recognizable white case, there are the $250 AirPods Pro. In a similarly sized, nondescript black case, there are the $180 Jabra Elite 75t. They’re the best earbuds I’ve gotten my hands on this year, and I almost can’t decide which ones I like better. Almost.

Here’s the long and short of it: based on price and performance, the Jabra Elite 75t are hard to beat. Based on cachet and convenience, the AirPods Pro are hard to beat. Which set is best for you, depends on what you value most. Personally, I would spend my money on the new Jabras. Aspirationally, the AirPods Pro sure are slick.

As I outlined in my review, the Jabra Elite 75t earbuds fix almost everything that I didn’t like about their wildly popular predecessor, the Elite 65t. They’re smaller. The case is better. The battery life is longer. (Seven hours on a single charge!) And thanks to Bluetooth 5 support, the Elite 75t also work better. They turn on when you put them in your ears, and so far, I’ve never had a connection issue. I also love that they have physical buttons you can use to control your music.

Harvey Weinstein Spotted Without His Walker: Is He Only Using One For Sympathy?

That’s weird! It seems as if Harvey Weinstein might only use his walker when it could win him some valuable sympathy.

A Page Six spy recently spotted the disgraced mogul in Manhattan with his attorneys, shuffling into a meeting with a potentially hostile group and using a walker for support.

 

So the same source was surprised to spot Weinstein a few days later at a Target in Mount Kisco, NY, near Bedford, with his family — striding around without any support whatsoever.

And the source was once again surprised on Wednesday to see Weinstein arrive for a bail hearingrelated to his upcoming sexual assault trial in New York — hobbling into court with his walker once again.

“He’s just using it for sympathy,” concluded the spy.

A rep told us that Weinstein underwent a three-hour operation on his back on Thursday. “He had a bilateral laminectomy and is now recovering, and will be remaining one night in the hospital,” the rep said, but didn’t offer an explanation of Weinstein’s selective use of the walker.

After the Wednesday hearing, his attorney Donna Rotunno said Weinstein was using the medical equipment at the insistence of his legal team. “We wanted him to use a walker last week, and Mr. Weinstein didn’t want the press to think he was seeking sympathy,” she said.

At the hearing, his bail was increased from $1 million in cash to a $2 million bond, after Weinstein was accused by prosecutors of having 57 violations involving his ankle monitor. His lawyers told the judge that any issues with the ankle monitor were due to technical glitches.

Meanwhile, the New York Times reported Wednesday that Weinstein “and the board of his bankrupt film studio have reached a tentative $25 million settlement agreement with dozens of his alleged sexual-misconduct victims.” It wouldn’t require him to admit wrongdoing or pay anything to his accusers himself.

Supreme Court Will Hear Three Cases Over Trump’s Financial Records

  • The Supreme Court said on Friday that it will hear three cases over President Donald Trump’s financial records next year.
  • Trump asked the justices to reverse three lower court rulings that would require his longtime accounting firm and two of his banks to hand over financial records to investigators.
  • The arguments are likely to be the most high-profile of the term, and will test the court’s newly constituted conservative majority.
  • A decision is expected by the end of June, in the midst of the 2020 presidential election.

The Supreme Court said on Friday that it will hear three cases over President Donald Trump’s financial records next year, and scheduled arguments for its March session.

The arguments are likely to be the most high-profile of the term, and will test the court’s newly constituted conservative majority. A decision is expected by the end of June, in the midst of the 2020 presidential election.

The cases are the first in which Trump’s personal dealings have come before the top court since he became president.

Trump asked the justices to reverse three lower court rulings that would require his longtime accounting firm and two of his banks to hand over financial records to investigators.

The nine-member panel has a 5-4 conservative majority, including two Trump appointees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump is the first president in more than four decades not to voluntarily make his tax records public, and has fought vigorously to shield his finances.

Two of the cases involve subpoenas issued by congressional committees led by Democrats in the House of Representatives. One involves an investigation led by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance into potential violations of New York state law.

The cases raise separate legal questions, but all could turn on a sweeping view of presidential immunity put forward by Trump’s personal attorneys.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC. Jay Sekulow, the president’s private counsel, said in a statement that “we are pleased that the Supreme Court granted review of the President’s three pending cases.”

“These cases raise significant constitutional issues. We look forward to presenting our written and oral arguments,” he said.

The first case to reach the top court stems from an investigation launched by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which is examining how the Trump Organization accounted for hush-money payments made to two women alleging affairs with the president in the months before the 2016 president election.

Trump has denied the affairs with porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal. His attorneys have argued that the president enjoys temporary immunity from such investigations while in office.

Vance’s office issued a subpoena to the president’s longtime accounting firm Mazars, seeking eight years of the president’s corporate and personal financial records, which the New York-based 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld.

The second case involves a subpoena issued to Mazars by the Democratic-led House Oversight Committee, which has said that it is pursuing whether new ethics-in-government legislation is needed. That subpoena was upheld by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

The third case involves subpoenas issued to the president’s lenders, Deutsche Bank and Capital One, by the House intelligence and financial services committees.

Those committees have argued that they are pursuing an investigation into foreign money laundering. The subpoenas seek information about both Trump and his family members. The 2nd Circuit upheld those subpoenas last week. Trump has denied wrongdoing.

Dem Rep. Wasserman Schultz: ‘Trump Has Treated The Constitution … Like Nothing More Than Toilet Paper’

Some things never change.

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “Well, first of all, Katy, thanks for having me on. I really think what this boils down to is we are here because the President of the United States has treated the Constitution like toilet paper, like nothing more than toilet paper. He has engaged in an unprecedented abuse of power. He engaged in a protracted shakedown scheme to try to coerce a foreign country into investigating his political rival to benefit his own campaign. He has engaged in unprecedented obstruction of Congress. There’s no president in history that has refused categorically to turn documents over to the United States Congress, to provide witnesses to give testimony. He has violated his oath of office, violated the Constitution, and needs and must be held accountable as a result. No one is above the law.”
