Adam Schiff, old 'shifty' eyes, facing GOP censure fire

- The Washington Times

House GOPers are forcing a vote on Rep. Adam Schiff's censure. What good will that do? Likely: Little. The House is Democratic-controlled and honestly, censuring someone as "shifty" as Schiff, as Rep.

Democratic candidate for president Tulsi Gabbard, in a widely watched Twitter-posted YouTube video, condemned the "rich, powerful" gang of elites who surround Hillary Clinton and demand Democrats either "toe the line" or stay silent.

- The Washington Times

Sen. Lindsey Graham said "sure," he'd support impeachment of Donald Trump -- if in fact it were shown the president had committed an impeachable offense, that is. And from that, all the anti-Trumpers in the media went: One of Trump's biggest supporters wants to impeach! This is a classic example of bias masked as news.

SNYDER: 49ers party with Redskins' season already a washout

With conditions to remind them of home -- wet, windy and chilly -- the 49ers displayed a mindset directly from the school of positive psychology, finding sunshine on a rainy day. Meanwhile, the elements provided a perfect reflection for the Washington Redskins' damp and dreary season, which is already a washout less than halfway through.
