Trump lawyers respond to articles of impeachment: 'Constitutionally invalid'

Trump lawyers respond to articles of impeachment: 'Constitutionally invalid' | 19 Jan 2020 | President Trump's legal team on Saturday issued a full-throttle defense to the articles of impeachment, refuting the substance and process of the charges while accusing House Democrats of engaging in a "dangerous attack" on the right of the American people to freely choose their president. "This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election -- now just months away," the legal filing said. "The highly partisan and reckless obsession with impeaching the president began the day he was inaugurated and continues to this day." "The articles of impeachment are constitutionally invalid on their face," the seven-page filing continued.

'Europhysics News' Article on WTC Demolitions Surpasses One Million Views

'Europhysics News' Article on WTC Demolitions Surpasses One Million Views | 19 Jan 2020 | Could it be the most widely read scientific article of all time? What we can say for sure is that "15 years later: on the physics of high-rise building collapses" the five-page feature in the August 2016 issue of the European Physical Society's Europhysics News by Dr. Steven Jones, Dr. Robert Korol, engineer Tony Szamboti, and AE911Truth's Ted Walter -- has been read, and continues to be read, by a massive number of people... It authoritatively lays waste to the official account of the World Trade Center's destruction -- the most blatant and consequential scientific fraud ever perpetrated on the world. It is also one of the few times that a reputable scientific organization has had the courage and integrity to provide a forum for the issue.

How five members of Joe Biden's family got rich through his connections

How five members of Joe Biden's family got rich through his connections | 19 Jan 2020 | Political figures have long used their families to route power and benefits for their own self-enrichment. In my new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite," one particular politician -- Joe Biden -- emerges as the king of the sweetheart deal, with no less than five family members benefiting from his largesse, favorable access and powerful position for commercial gain. In Biden's case, these deals include foreign partners and, in some cases, even U.S. taxpayer dollars. The Biden family's apparent self-enrichment involves no less than five family members: Joe's son Hunter, son-in-law Howard, brothers James and Frank, and sister Valerie.

About a dozen right-leaning corporatist groups have come out against the bill, including some of the most well-known fiscally conservative corporate welfare organizations in Washington, like Club for Growth and FreedomWorks. The groups join a high-dollar fight launched last year by hospitals, insurance companies, doctors and private equity groups that are all trying to tilt the measure in their favor.
