Democrats or Demon rats?
Congressman Adam Schiff is just the third member of the House this century to be censured. It was a party-line vote yesterday. Schiff now faces an ethics investigation for spreading false claims that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. He was found to have been dishonest and dishonorable.
The nation got a small measure of justice in no small part to the bulldogging of Florida Congresswoman Anna Paulina Luna. She’s a rock star. And the House should advance her resolution calling for Schiff to be expelled from Congress.

Speaker Kevin McCarthy struck the right tone on the dark day saying Schiff abused his position as chairman of the intelligence committee to lie and lead American through a national nightmare.
Democrats meanwhile – staged their own mini- rebellion on the House floor, shouting “shame” over and over again.
What’s shameful are the outright lies spewed by Schiff and his colleagues on the left side of the aisle.
And Schiff did not express one ounce of regret. He said his lies were a badge of honor.
“To my Republican colleagues who introduced this resolution, I thank you. You honor me with your enmity, you flatter me with this falsehood,” Schiff said. “You, who are the authors of a big lie about the last election, must condemn the truth tellers.
This man is no hero. He’s a liar who abused his office. He used our tax money to spread conspiracy theories. His actions caused great unrest across the political landscape. He knew what he was doing was wrong but he did not care then – and he does not care now.
Now if all of this sounds strangely familiar – it’s because it is. Here’s a recent timeline of the Democrat Party’s trouble with the truth. They have no moral center.
In 2012 I was at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte when delegates tried to remove God from the party platform. The Democrats literally booed the Almighty.
A severe thunderstorm hit the city just after the vote. I’m not kidding. Thunder, lightning. A salt shaker short of Sodom and Gommorah.
In August of that year former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid accused then presidential candidate Mitt Romney of not paying any taxes for a decade.
He made that jaw-dropping allegation on the Senate floor and dared Romney to prove otherwise. The accusation turned out to be a lie – a dirty trick.
Years later Reid was asked if he regretted lying about Romney.
“Well, they can call it whatever they want,” Reid said. “Romney didn’t win, did he?”
No regrets. And that’s why they called him Dirty Harry.
And thanks to special counsel John Durham we can now say without a shadow of doubt that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were behind the fake Russian dossier. They knew it was phony. But it didn’t matter. Hillary’s campaign spoon fed the lie to Mainstream Media – and it nearly cost Trump the election.
Hillary, Obama, Schiff. These are all very bad people. Evil people.
John Adams, our second president, once said that our constitution is wholly inadequate for anyone other than a moral and religious people. And this is why we our nation is in a cultural freefall. The ruling party is immoral. They’ve rejected the Constitution and the Ten Commandments.
Republicans were right to censure Mr. Schiff. But the entire Democrat Party needs to be censured. Followed up with an exorcism to cast out their political demons. Back home in Memphis – we call that “Come to Jesus” time.
