  If Jim Jordan is leading the team, you might want to bet against that team.   In perusing the transcript of the Fiona Hill deposition before the joint House Impeachment Inquiry committee, presided over by Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), I happened across this gem, which gives us a bit of a preview how ineffective House Oversight Committee member Jim Jordan (R-OH) is going to prove to be when he is moved over to the House Intelligence Committee as replacement for Devin Nunes (R-CA), who has become a self caricature. …

Alex Jones Followers and the Hoaxed Mindset: Sandy Hook in the News Again

By Janice Barlow We’ve all heard them.  Or read about them. Sometimes we are tempted to believe them. But in most cases, we peek behind the curtain and sanity reappears. Contrary to Alex Jones and his haywire hoaxer junkies: 9/11 was not an inside job perpetrated by the Bush administration. There was no Pizzagate with a bunch of Democrat officials involved in a satanic child porn ring. And Sandy Hook was not a set up by Barack Obama in order to promulgate gun control.
