(Drudge) PELOSI WARNS: BACK OFF IMPEACHMENT! (Politico) In a closed-door meeting last week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi stunned lawmakers and aides with a swipe at Democratic staff on the House Judiciary Committee. Pelosi criticized the panel’s handling of impeachment in harsh terms, complaining committee aides have advanced the push for ousting President Donald Trump far beyond where the House Democratic Caucus stands. Democrats simply don’t have the votes on the floor to impeach Trump, Pelosi said. “And you can feel free to leak this,” Pelosi added, according to multiple people in the room. Pelosi’s office declined to comment on the meeting. It was the latest sign of the widening schism between Pelosi and Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, two longtime allies who have served in the House together for more than 25 years. The Judiciary Committee held what it billed as its first “impeachment hearing” on Tuesday with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, whose outright refusal to answer questions only bolstered Democrats’ impeachment investigation, so claims Nadler, once known by Trump as “Fat Jerry.”
(Drudge) JUSTIN, IS THAT YOU? REVEALED: Trudeau Wore Brownface at 2001 'Arabian Nights' Party… while he taught at a private school (TIME). OoooOOOooo! (Daily Mail) Another picture emerges of TRUDEAU IN AFRO WIG singing the Jamaican song “Day-O” by Harry Belafonte at a talent show at his high school. He graduated in the early 90s. Also a BLACKFACE VIDEO emerged in what Global News calls a “3rd instance of racist makeup.” Trudeau covered in what appears to be dark makeup and raising his hands in the air while laughing, sticking his tongue out and making faces. He’s wearing a white T-shirt, and his jeans are ripped at the knees. It appears as though his arms and legs are covered in makeup as well. (SO LAUGHABLE, SO WHAT!) CANADA is JOLTED as the revelations Roil the Canada Election… (AP) The prime minister apologized after the first yearbook photo came out, and said “it was a dumb thing to do.” He was 29 when he wore a turban and robe, with dark makeup on his hands, face and neck. He launched his reelection campaign one week ago, and said he should have known better. “I’m pissed off at myself, I’m disappointed in myself,” Trudeau told reporters traveling with him on his campaign plane.
Earlier this year, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam faced intense pressure to resign after what the media calls a “racist” picture surfaced from his 1984 medical school yearbook page. He denied being in the picture but admitted wearing supposed “blackface” as a young man while portraying Michael Jackson at a dance party in the 1980s. Since then, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring has acknowledged wearing blackface in college, and Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has publicly apologized for donning blackface during a college skit more than 50 years ago. None has resigned.
(Drudge) Immigration Courts' Backlog Exceeds One Million Cases… (WSJ) The number of pending cases has nearly doubled since Trump came into office. (THEY’RE FIGHTING HARD TO OVERWHELM HIM!) The backlogged deportation docket pending in U.S. immigration courts surpassed one million cases in August, despite the Trump administration’s varied attempts to cut back on asylum claims. The backlog this year has grown at a record pace, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, which tracks immigration court data. The figure has nearly doubled since President Trump took office in January 2017, when about 542,000 cases were pending.
(Drudge) STRIKE! GM drops workers' health care during walkout… (ABC News) shifting the costs instead to a union fund on the third day. More than 49,000 UAW union workers walked off their jobs on Sunday night, starting a nationwide strike at General Motors. Mary Kay Henry, the president of the giant far-left Service Employees International Union slammed the news in a statement, calling it "heartless and unconscionable."
“GM's decision to yank healthcare coverage away from their dedicated employees [NOT THAT DEDICATED!], in the dead of night, with no warning, is heartless and unconscionable. GM's actions could put people's lives at risk [A LIE!], from the factory worker who needs treatment for their asthma to the child who relies on their parents' insurance for chemotherapy..."
Thu, Sep 19, Hour 2:
James, Joel, and Nick join Jesse talk, laugh, and joke about male feminist liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “blackface” photos from 2001 and the 90s. The Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer called Trudeau “racist,” so he’s weak. Nick talks about Maxime Bernier, member of parliament and part of the People’s Party of Canada, who’s supposedly pro-Trump. We also touch on the Iraqi mechanic for American Airlines who sabotaged a navigation system on a plane with 150 passengers, and it turns out he has terror ties. His brother
Then some great calls, but some with bad phone connections!

(Drudge) AMAZON's Answer to Gun Violence: Ban Ads for Books About Ending Gun Violence… Rick Smith writes in The Observer: Earlier this year, I published a book called The End of Killing. It examines how new technology can help us end violence, with a focus on premeditated killing by firearms. Shortly after it debuted, my publisher ran ads for the book on Amazon. A few weeks ago, we discovered that Amazon blocked the book’s ads after the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. Why? Because the cover has a gun on it. Further, they said they’d reinstate the ads only if we revised the cover. Here’s the note from Amazon’s legal team: “If approved with changes, the following changes must be made: This book cover is blocked at the moment due to the critical event policy that was activated 8/4/19 following the mass shootings in the U.S. We would be happy to revisit the ad after 8/12/19, but the cover image will not be approved as-is. An updated ad would need an image without a gun.”
Rick Smith goes on: I was confused. The book’s thesis—indeed, my life’s work—is how we can end deaths by firearms. The book doesn’t promote guns. Far from it. In fact, my prime argument is that the lethality of firearms is a problem, but one that we can fix. And yet, Amazon wouldn’t allow us to promote those ideas in the aftermath of a deadly event that demonstrated the dire need for them. (Yet you search for “guns” and find them!)
(Drudge) Dem donor Ed Buck arrested after third man overdoses at home… He allegedly Used his position of power to drug and manipulate men… (KTLA) Ed Buck, a prominent Democratic donor and political activist, was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who suffered an overdose at Buck's West Hollywood apartment last week, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said. Buck is charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house. Prosecutors said Buck injected the victim with methamphetamine at his apartment on Sept. 11. The victim suffered an overdose, but survived. Buck is known as an animal-rights and LGBTQ activist who has donated to Democratic politicians and once ran for West Hollywood City Council. This most recent incident marks the third known time a man suffered a methamphetamine overdose at Buck's West Hollywood apartment. The previous two victims did not survive.
The first man, 26-year-old Gemmel Moore (he was black), died on July 27, 2017. Prosecutors cited insufficient evidence in declining to press charges against Buck in connection with Moore's death, which was ruled an accidental methamphetamine overdose.
GROSS DETAILS: (Paramedics found the 26-year-old naked on a mattress in the living room with a “male pornography movie playing on the television,” a coroner’s report said. Investigators found sex toys, syringes and “clear plastic bags with suspected methamphetamine in a tool box roll-cabinet in the living room,” according to the report.)
A second man, 55-year-old Timothy Dean, died of methamphetamine and alcohol toxicity on Jan. 7. Dean's autopsy report said he died at least 15 minutes before anyone called 911. That death was also ruled accidental.
(Bakersfield.com quotes one person) “Black gay men’s lives matter. The whole black LGBT community is going to be celebrating this evening because our lives matter, and people need to know that. Even if we’re sex workers, even if we’re on drugs, even if we’re homeless, we’re still part of the black community, still part of the LGBT community,” activist Jasmyne Cannick said.
Aha! (Drudge) AMERICAN AIRLINES mechanic accused of sabotaging jet may have terrorist ties… You heard the details in the 2nd hour just now. (Miami Herald) He had a brother in ISIS, he’s from Iraq, and he admitted having an “evil side.”

Trudeau in so-called ‘blackface,’ oooOOOooo!
(Drudge) JUSTIN, IS THAT YOU? REVEALED: Trudeau Wore Brownface at 2001 'Arabian Nights' Party… Also: TRUDEAU IN AFRO WIG singing the Jamaican song “Day-O” by Harry Belafonte at a talent show at his high school. He graduated in the early 90s. Also a BLACKFACE VIDEO emerged in what Global News calls a “3rd instance of racist makeup.” CANADA is JOLTED as the revelations Roil the Canada Election…
It Roils the Canada Election… (AP) Earlier this year, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam faced intense pressure to resign after what the media calls a “racist” picture surfaced from his 1984 medical school yearbook page. He denied being in the picture but admitted wearing supposed “blackface” as a young man while portraying Michael Jackson at a dance party in the 1980s. Since then, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring has acknowledged wearing blackface in college, and Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has publicly apologized for donning blackface during a college skit more than 50 years ago. None has resigned. (I NOTICE AP DIDN’T NOTE THAT THEY’RE MOSTLY DEMOCRATS EXCEPT THE LADY KAY IVEY WHO DID IT 50 YEARS AGO!)
MY TAKE on ‘Blackface’
Does anybody care about “blackface”? Anybody with a logical and not emotional argument against it? No. Because there is none. They talk about clowns from back in the day. Somehow that was “racist” because whites would dress up as blacks and mock and laugh. And somehow that’s “racist” or something. Races laughing at each other and themselves.
I did it. A liberal college professor I knew, a whitesican, called it “blackface,” and pointed out I was a substitute teacher at the time. He might have laughed about it.
Somebody said there’s no such thing as being offended. It’s a hoax. Especially a third-party type thing.
I said immigrants are helping hurt the country, and but so are the natives. Getting brainwashed, lazy, spoiled, corrupt, weak, on drugs and alcohol and porn, complaining, etc.
RINO Congressmen Retiring; Can’t Handle Trump! DRAINING THE SWAMP!
(Drudge) SWAMP: Trump outpaces Obama and Bush in naming ex-lobbyists to Cabinet… (PSH. LOBBYISTS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM! Lobbyists are Bernie and Warren’s version of the “problem.”)
(Drudge) Republicans hemorrhaging congressmen; Another one retires… (Daily Caller) Republican Rep. Paul Cook Of California Announces He’s Retiring From Congress — he will not be seeking reelection and will instead run for his county supervisor seat (San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors). Cook was elected to Congress in 2012 and is currently in his fourth term. Cook served as Mayor of Yucca Valley and in the state legislature before being elected to Congress. He also served as an infantry officer in the Marines. Cook is now the 18th House Republican Representative to announce they will not seek re-election in 2020. Cook serves on the House Committee on Armed Services and House Committee on Natural Resources. (Last year, Trump had backed establishment guy Cook as incumbent over Tea Party guy Tim Donnelly.)
Other RINO Quitters
Texas Rep. Bill Flores (who’d reportedly criticized the Trump family) said Wednesday he will not seek reelection next year for a sixth term in Congress, making him the fifth Texas Republican to announce retirement this election cycle. Republican Texas Rep. Kenny Marchant (who voted to increase the minimum wage in 2008) announced in late August that he will not seek reelection, making him the fourth federal Republican congressman from the state to retire in the last few weeks.
Marchant’s retirement came as three other Texas Republican representatives, including Will Hurd, Mike Conaway (who reportedly said “serving under Trump is embarrassing”), and Pete Olson (who disavowed Trump’s tweet about “the squad” in July), also recently announced they will not be seeking reelection.
Hurd, the only black Republican in the House of Representatives, said he will not seek reelection in late August, saying he plans to “serve my country in a different way.” (Hurd as I recall is a black RINO and Trump hater. Will Hurd had called Trump’s tweets about the Democrat female congressmen of color 'racist and xenophobic'. I think he said it on CNN.)
They’re SELF-DEPORTING! GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH!
Caller Log, courtesy of Jesse’s producer, Nick
Jake from New York wants to know James defines American? Jake says he is a bigger alpha male than James would ever be and James calls him out beautifully. Jake is an alpha because he went to the military but James brings up Pete Buttigieg and informs him that Pete was in the military so big whoop.
Kevin from Connecticut is wondering if BOND is moving via moving company or not.
Roger from Arizona wonders about the outrage to abortion and James agrees that people shouldn’t be upset but it is wrong for sure. It makes people worse and those that do are full of guilt. Roger touches on immigration and disagrees with Jesse that blacks are affected first.
Alex from San Antonio, TX was listening to the previous caller, Jake, and is glad James stood up to him. Alex remarks on the military how many aren’t combat jobs, it’s just clerical or office work. Alex wants to tell veterans the truth about asking for bigger payouts, It isn’t helping. James notices that liberal media likes kissing up to the veterans and use terms like “public servant”.
Christopher from Los Angeles, CA wonders what is so funny about a white person in blackface. James says it's fun and that the fact that its taboo adds to it. People act like the historical reference is what makes it racist. They converse about the history and what blackface means. James comments that blacks often assign a motive to something white people do that is not there.
