Nancy Pelosi is bungling the impeachment inquiry into Trump
By rushing the impeachment process - and keeping the focus narrow - Pelosi may be making a grave political miscalculationNancy Pelosi is rushing to conclude the impeachment inquiry against President Trump. On Thursday, just over two months after the inquiry was launched, Pelosi announced she was instructing investigators to draft articles of impeachment. These will be voted on by the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives as soon as this month.The impeachment articles seem likely to focus only on the president's attempt to blackmail Ukraine into interfering in the 2016 election, and his subsequent attempts to obstruct investigations into the scheme. "Our democracy is what is at stake," Pelosi said in a news conference, standing before a backdrop of placidly hanging American flags. "The president leaves us no choice but to act, because he is trying to corrupt, once again, the election."Another hearing is scheduled in the judiciary committee for this coming Monday, but the timeline is now clear: the House will vote to impeach the president, probably in a party-line vote, sometime in late December or early January. The Republican-controlled Senate will try him in the early months of 2020, and regardless of the evidence, he will almost certainly be acquitted.For months, Pelosi was reluctant to pursue impeachment, and even after being persuaded to open the inquiry, she has seemed weary and anxious of the political stakes of the process. It seems to have been Pelosi who dictated a narrow focus for the inquir

Germany: 'No understanding' for Russia outrage on expulsions
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's chief of staff is urging Russia to support the investigation of a killing prosecutors say appears to have ordered by Russian or Chechen authorities, and says he has "no understanding" for outraged reactions from Moscow. Germany expelled two Russian diplomats on Wednesday over the brazen killing of a Georgian man on the streets of Berlin in August. German federal prosecutors said evidence suggested the slaying was ordered either by Moscow or authorities in Russia's republic of Chechnya.

Weak Arctic ice sees 56 polar bears descend on Russian village
More than 50 polar bears have gathered on the edge of a village in Russia's far north, environmentalists and residents said, as weak Arctic ice leaves them unable to roam. The Russian branch of the World Wildlife Fund said climate change was to blame, as unusually warm temperatures prevented coastal ice from forming. The WWF said 56 polar bears had gathered in a one-square-kilometre (0.4-square-mile) area near the village of Ryrkaipy in Chukotka on the northeastern tip of Russia.

Biden's Plan to Take Down Warren: Have Mayor Pete Do It
Since launching his presidential bid, former Vice President Joe Biden has largely settled on a primary strategy common among frontrunners: Only attack when attacked, stay above the conflict, and let the other candidates squabble among themselves so they can eventually take one another out. That last tactic is why Biden hasn't been going after Pete Buttigieg. He doesn't think the South Bend mayor can hurt him, but he does think Buttigieg can hurt someone else who could—Sen. Elizabeth Warren.Biden's campaign declined to comment on the record about its strategy. But multiple veteran pollsters and operatives said there's sound logic behind the notion that the vice president's team might view Buttigieg as a useful way to help blunt Warren's momentum, particularly with white college-educated voters. The more Buttigieg rises in states like Iowa and New Hampshire, the thinking goes, the more Warren slips in some polls. "There's not a reason to believe Buttigieg at this point is really hurting Biden," Monmouth University pollster Patrick Murray told The Daily Beast. "The more the waters in Iowa are muddied, the better it is for Biden."One well-placed Iowa Democrat put it more candidly, "You don't need to punch down at the mayor of South Bend, Indiana."One exception to that rule occurred on Monday, as Biden cruised on his extended bus tour through the Hawkeye State, a place where Buttigieg has recently gained ground and Warren has an equally strong following with just nine weeks to go before the first votes are cast. Responding to a repo

Alice (Emily Beecham) is a single mother and dedicated senior plant breeder at a corporation engaged in developing new species. She has engineered a special crimson flower, remarkable not only for its beauty but also for its therapeutic value: if kept at the ideal temperature, fed properly and spoken to regularly, this plant makes its owner happy. Against company policy, Alice takes one home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They christen it ‘Little Joe.' But as their plant grows, so too does Alice's suspicion that her new creation may not be as harmless as its nickname suggests.Rated: Not RatedRelease Date: Dec 06, 2019
