A thought crossed my mind on the impeachment of Donald Trump; do the Democrats even see any POLITICAL advantage?
Specifically, do they actually think they will remove Trump from office/ I suspect they know they can't or won't. I suspect more is happening here.
What? First, they figure they can bloody Trump up a good bit, even if they fail to take him out. Second, they are throwing a Hail Mary pass; they know they have no hope of winning the election with the dwarfs. But I suspect this is so much about the Supreme Court.
I think the Democrats are desperate to stop Trump from getting another SCOTUS pick, and by impeaching him they think they can make the argument that a President under impeachment should not get to appoint a Justice to the Court. They will use this to hold the Court to six members if necessary, thus allowing any hotly contested issue to be decided by lower courts, principally the Ninth Circuit.
The Left is desperate to stop the replacement of Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
As I say, there are some political benefits, but I rather suspect they are willing to risk being turned into a minority party to stop this appointment.
I've never seen such desperation on the part of a political party in my life.
If this fails Mr. Trump should invest in a kevlar suit; they are willing to go that far.
Judicial Watch's Tom Fitton -- an indispensable American citizen if ever there was one -- was on Joe Pags' talk show this afternoon. I didn't hear it but my wife did, and she said Fitton said "Stop calling it impeachment. It's a COUP!"
And the reason the donkeys are trying to take over the government from the president is that they are desperate to keep under wraps the illegal tricks they played to try, in the beginning, to keep him from being elected in the first place. They are terrified that investigations underway in the DOJ under AG Barr will shine the light on them (sunlight is the best disinfectant). They are terrified that dirty tricks they played in Ukraine (yep, it's true) will come to light, because the new government there is on our side, and the reason Trump shifted the communication from "the whistleblower" to a very secure server was to prevent Democrat hands from getting on it, because HIS people are conducting their own investigation into it. Are we not surprised that he doesn't trust anyone else to do the job? Trump is one man alone in Washington; virtually everyman's hand is against him.
But if the Democrats' dirty tricks come to light, THEY are toast and they know it. If Trump survives the coup, the donkey party goes down to ignominious defeat. As Frank Sinatra used to say, "Leave us we could pray." Or something similar.
But it's not even about impeachment anymore, guys. It's a COUP. remember that.

Yes, it IS a coup and always has been, since Hillary first started talking about Russian influence in the Trump camp long before the election. They were planning this as "insurance".Peter Strzok was on record saying that.
I agree with Fitton to a large degree; it's about hiding their dirty tricks. But I think it goes beyond that; the dirty tricks were a desperate attempt to keep an outsider out of things in the first place. For decades Washington has been run like a mafia front business, and it doesn't matter which party officially is in power - it is the Democrats who have always run it. The Republicans are window dressing, the guys who are given a little power to make it look like we have a two party system, the guys who are there to be villains in the great show. The GOP has been content with that since Reagan, at least.
Even the lions like Newt Gingrich turned into pussycats, and that I have no doubt is because they were easily blackmailed. I suspect Gingrich had a few skeletons in his closet, for instance.
In fact, I think the whole thing works like "The Firm" where they get dirt on you early and you either toe the line or the drop it on you. Who is going to take that? You either resign or you stay and enjoy the fruits of obedience.
Trump is different; he is a street fighter who doesn't give a damn about his reputation. A guy like that, who can't be bought or bullied, is an existential threat to them.
We are reaching the point where we're going to decide who actually owns this country. I fear there will be a war over this; it's as bad, or worse, than 1860. We know what happened then, It won't be a war between states, though, but a much nastier, more violent, more brutal thing, and everyone will be a combatant.
Democrats were Opposed to Impeachment Before they were for it
Here are a few quotes from Democrats on the impeachment of Bill Clinton and the scheme to impeach Donald Trump:
"Outside the Beltway, people want this thing to be over. I
think theyâ€™ve had enough of it. This is one of my concerns about the
continued release of materials even before the inquiry itself has
begun. And I think the American people have other things they want
their government to take care of other than dwell on this.â€
â€” Sept. 26, 1998
"I find the whistleblower complaint to be highly credible. It suggests
that the president used his office to demand political favors from a
foreign country and that White House personnel knew this was wrong and
tried to cover it up by burying details of the call with Ukrainian
Sept. 21, 2019
"The American people donâ€™t think that they have made a mistake by
electing Bill Clinton and we in Congress had better be very careful
before we upset their decision and make darn sure that we are able to
convince them, if we decide to upset their decision, that our decision
to impeach him was based upon principle and not politics.â€â€” Nov. 18, 1998
"It is a tragedy for this country that our president put personal
politics above his sacred oath. He has put his own political interests
over our national security interest, which is bolstering Ukraine
against Russian pressure. It is an affront to every single American and
the founding values of our country. This is not a Republican issue or a
Democratic issue. It is a national security issue. It is a test of our
â€” Sept. 25, 2019
"It is time we move forward, and not have the Congress and the
American people endure a specter of what could be a yearlong focus on a
tawdry but not impeachable affair.â€â€”
Oct. 6, 1998
"This documentâ€ â€” a White House summation of the phone conversation
â€” "demonstrates that President Trump made it abundantly and redundantly
clear to the president of the Ukraine that he wanted him to investigate
his political opponent and further that he wanted him to work with
Attorney General (William) Barr to make it happen. This document
absolutely validates the wisdom of â€¦ (the) decision to open up a formal
impeachment inquiry.â€â€” Sept. 25, 2019
Nancy Pelosi December 1998.
"Today the Republican majority is not judging the president with fairness, but impeaching him with a vengeance
In the investigation of the president, fundamental principles which
Americans hold dear -- fairness, privacy, checks and balances -- have
been seriously violated and why? Because we are here today because the
Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of President
Clinton. ... Until the Republicans free themselves of that hatred, our
country will suffer.â€
We could not ignore what the president did. He gave us no choice. So it
wasn't any change of mind. I always said we will follow the facts where
they take us. And when we see them, we will be ready. And we are ready.
He told me it was perfect. There was nothing in the call. But I know
what was in the call. I mean, it was in the public domain. He didn't
even know that it was wrong. You know, he was saying, "It was perfect.
There was nothing wrong." Well, no, it is wrong. It is wrong for a
president to say that he wants you-- another head of state-- to create
something negative about his possible political opponent to his own
advantage, at the expense of our national security, his oath of office
to the Constitution and the integrity of our elections.
Nancy Pelosi to Scott Pelley September 2019
So the Democrats have a huge dose of hypocrisy here.
Does anyone remember Moveon.org? That website was created to advocate moving on from impeachment during the Clinton era. Now where are they?

Isn't it odd that this "dude" has only fought one fight? I know why; they couldn't afford to have "him" get creamed. I have little doubt the guy "he" fought was a powderpuff puncher, chosen specifically to produce a victory.
Certainly none of this justifies making this he/she the face of Everlast.
Liberalism corrupts everything it touches.
I predict we'll hear nothing more about "him" after another fight or two.

Our rights are threatened by an unelected, politically correct, morally righteous elite
This is excerpted from a hard-hitting article by the great Victor Davis Hanson.
The American founders institutionalized the best of
a long Western tradition of representative government with the U.S.
Constitution and Bill of Rights. These contracts outlined the rare
privileges and responsibilities of new American citizens.
Yet the concept of citizenship is being assaulted on the premodern side by the legal blending of mere residency with citizenship.
on the number of undocumented American residents range from 11 million
to more than 20 million. The undocumented are becoming legally
indistinguishable from citizens and enjoy exemption from federal immigration law in some 500 sanctuary jurisdictions. An
illegal resident of California will pay substantially less tuition at a
California public university than a U.S. citizen of another state.
Multiculturalism has reduced the idea of e pluribus unum to a
regressive tribalism. Americans often seem to owe their first allegiance
to those who look like they do. Citizens cannot even agree over
once-hallowed and shared national holidays such as Christmas,
Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July.
It is eerie how such current
American retribalization resembles the collapse of Rome, as Goths, Huns
and Vandals all squabbled among one another for what was left of 1,200
years of Roman citizenship â€” eager to destroy what they could neither
create nor emulate.
Citizenship has always been protected by the middle classes â€” on the
idea that they are more independent and self-reliant than the poor, but
can stand up to the influence and power of the elite.
recently, we had seen a decade of stagnant wages and entire regions
ossified by outsourcing, offshoring and unfair global trade.
Historically, with the demise of the middle class so follows the end of
Lone activist federal judges frequently overturn legislation and
referenda they find contrary to their own political take on legal theory
â€” without worry that the votes of millions are canceled in a
Meanwhile, the proverbial "swampâ€ of the bureaucratic,
administrative and regulatory state is so vast and unaccountable that a
few clerks can harass entrepreneurs, issue edicts with the force of
legislation that ruins lives, or indict, regulate or audit a targeted
individual into legal bankruptcy.
We still have a Bill of Rights, but many of our constitutional
protections are being rendered impotent. If a rural family cannot find
ammunition at the local Walmart or gun store due to organized boycotts
and threats to such establishments, then the constitutional right to
bear arms is not always exercisable in a practical sense.
We are unwinding at both ends. Tribalism, the erosion of the middle
class and de facto open borders are turning Americans into mere
residents of a particular North American region between Mexico and
even more dangerously, thanks to the fiats of unelected bureaucrats and
officials, along with the social media lynch mobs who boycott, harass
and shame us, our constitutional rights are now increasingly optional.
They mostly hinge on whether we are judged worthy by an unelected,
politically correct and morally righteous elite.
In theory, American citizenship remains the same. In reality, it is disappearing fast.
VDH is always a must-read. And he's right. It took one hundred years for Rome to fall from the first entry of German tribesmen into the Empire. In our era of fast communications and transportation it should move more quickly. And we've had barbarian invasions - in thought as well as people - for fifty years or better. America is about to fall.

Good post ! bahria town karachi 2 application form Land speculation is a kind of business that won't ever lose its worth once done properly. Land esteem generally expands consistently. What's more, in the event that some critical government or confidential task is begun in its area, the worth might increment complex. Bahria Town Karachi 2 or BTK 2, is an extraordinary lodging society in Karachi. An accomplished group of experts has invested their best energy to give the most extravagant expectations for everyday comforts to its occupants.
These gadgets give instant gratification and do nothing to promote actual thinking, so it's little wonder. I fear for the future; young people have no attention span whatsoever. I've seen them texting while in the same room! They are overloaded with sensory stimuli while not having any way of processing. We are conducting an experiment in brain formation, and it's a dangerous thing.
The researchers analysed data provided by the parents of
more than 40,000 US children aged two to 17 for a nationwide health
survey in 2016. The questionnaire asked about the youngsters' medical
care, any emotional, developmental or behavioural issues and their
daily screen time.
Adolescents spending more than
seven hours a day on screens are twice as likely to have been diagnosed
with anxiety or depression as those who spent an hour. Links between
screen time and wellbeing are stronger among adolescents than young
children, the study found.
Professor Twenge said: "At first, I was surprised the
associations were larger for adolescents. However, teens spend more
time on their phones and on social media, and we know from other
research that these activities are more strongly linked to low
wellbeing than watching television and videos, which is most of younger
children's screen time."
Even moderate use of four hours is also associated with lower psychological well-being than one hour a day.
So if you want stupid and depressed kids, give them a smartphone or a tablet and leave 'em be!
Children and teenagers are still wiring their brains, and they are much more prone to environmental factors driving that brain architecture. This is THE critical time for brain development, and we are allowing this time to be stolen by an electronic monster that is not only teaching values we likely disagree with but also is changing our kid's perception of reality. It is a dangerous trend.
When I was studying math I was taught to use a slide rule. Most kids today do not even know what a slide rule is, but it was the use of a slide rule that made me able to understand the fundamental concept of logarithms.
Most kids today don't know what logarithms are, either, which leads them to believe that a Magnitude 6 earthquake is merely twice as big as a Magnitude 3 earthquake.
I was not allowed to use a portable calculator when taking tests. Kids are allowed to do that today, which is why today's store clerks cannot make change unless the cash register calculates it for them.
We are not devolving into a third world country. We are already there.

You said it, Bill! I never used a sliderule myself, but I also wasn't allowed to use calculators for math tests; had to do it the old fashioned way. You are absolutely right; the kids are completely baffled when the machines stop telling them what to do. You can't get change to save your life from a Millenial whose register isn't working properly.
Nice and good blog post ! bahria town karachi 2 form is viewed as Karachi's best lodging society because of its ideal spot, quick turn of events, best-quality foundation, and reasonable installment plans. BTK 2 costs are very reasonable. For the balloting results, make a point to contact the authority the board of the lodging society. They are consistently accessible at your disposal.

Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Mich., said the T-shirts are inappropriate and said he would let his supporters know about them.
you imagine the outrage if I had put a T-shirt together like that for
impeaching President Obama?â€ Huizenga said, according to The Detroit News."First
of all, my mother would have called me and told me, â€˜Shame on you.â€™

Intel Community Secretly Changed Rules for "Whistleblowers" just before Ukrainegate
Whistleblowers have to have first hand knowledge of the events they report, right? Well, it turns out the rules for intelligence agencies were just changed to allow hearsay. According to The Federalist:
Between May 2018 and August 2019, the intelligence community secretly
eliminated a requirement that whistleblowers provide direct, first-hand
knowledge of alleged wrongdoings. This raises questions about the
intelligence communityâ€™s behavior regarding the August submission of awhistleblower complaintagainst
President Donald Trump. The new complaint document no longer requires
potential whistleblowers who wish to have their concerns expedited to
Congress to have direct, first-hand knowledge of the alleged wrongdoing
that they are reporting.
The brand new
version of the whistleblower complaint form, which was not made public
until after the transcript of Trumpâ€™s July 25 phone call with the
Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky and the complaint addressed to
Congress were made public, eliminates the first-hand knowledge
requirement and allows employees to file whistleblower complaints even
if they have zero direct knowledge of underlying evidence and only
"heard about [wrongdoing] from others.â€
This is coming out of the intelligence community working with the Democrats, and it mirrors the kind of black ops the CIA used to do overseas. Given that the CIA and FBI were at the heart of the whole "Russian Collusion" farce, using a "dossier" paid for by Hillary Clinton to lie to a FISA court to get warrants to spy on Trump, there is every reason to believe this is a lie packed in a libel aimed at overthrowing the lawfully elected President.
Making this "secret" change in the rules shows someone was planning this.
"Two important articles in CiviltÃ Cattolica have been published in this regard. I recommend them to you.They were written by Father Spadaro and the Argentinean Presbyterian
pastor, Marcelo Figueroa. The first article spoke of the â€˜ecumenism of
hatred.â€™ The second was on the â€˜theology of prosperity,â€™â€ the pontiff
"Reading them you will see that there are sects that cannot really
be defined as Christian. They preach Christ, yes, but their message is
not Christian,â€ the pope said. "It has nothing to do with the preaching
of a Lutheran or any other serious evangelical Christianity.â€
In the first essay recommended by the pope, the authors, who are
both friends of Francis, slammed conservative Christians in the U.S. as
ignorant, theocratic, Manichean, war-mongering fanatics.
For the "Evangelical right,â€ the authors proposed, the panorama of
threats to the American way of life "have included modernist spirits,
the black civil rights movement, the hippy movement, communism,
feminist movements and so on. And now in our day there are the migrants
and the Muslims.â€
The authors did not hesitate to suggest that many Evangelicals are southern racists who reject climate change.
I am a Catholic, but I would have to say it is Francis who is teetering on anti-Christ here. He and his friends are the ones promoting a purely social gospel, an attack on God-given private property to promote "social justice" , something not in the Bible. It is HE who seems unconcerned with the redemption of souls. It is HE who is more interested in reconciling with Islam or Marxism than with Christian conservatives.
And this is just plain idiotic; the very definition of a Christian is to believe in the Trinity and believe Christ was the Son of God, who died for our sins and rose from the dead. That is the heart of Christianity. It transcends worldly things. Francis is very much a man of the world.
I am ashamed to be represented by this
Here is the kicker:
One of the most serious evils of American Evangelical Christians, the
article stated, is "the defense of religious liberty,â€™â€ which takes the
form of "a direct virtual challenge to the secularity of the state.â€
So worrying about the secularization of society is anti-Christian? That anyone in the Pope's good graces would make such ab absurd and revolutionary remark is more than concerning. The World is sinking into apostacy, and this is their worry?
I really do think Pope Francis is the False Prophet from the Book of Revelation.
I had thought of titling this "Frankie goes to Hollywood" but it didn't quite work.
"Before we talk about that Juan, I brought something for you,â€ said Watters.
"Oh, please,â€ Williams mocked.
have found, from 1999 to 2000, a treaty with Ukraine signed by Bill
Clinton â€¦ on mutual legal assistance and criminal matters, which
basically establishes a range of cooperation between the two
governments of Ukraine and the United States about making testimony
available, making people available, making documents and records
available and assisting in the cooperation of mutual criminal matters,â€
Watters said before making the point that if Biden is somehow immune,
anyone could be immune by simply saying they are running for office.
that then to your point about the Obama team and Hillary Clinton team
under that same treaty asking for Ukraine help to investigate Donald
Trump would fit underneath the same treaty,â€
"That is an investigation that is a counterintelligence investigation,
that does not fall under criminal investigation, because thatâ€™s what
that was under Barack Obama,â€ Watters explained. "And, remember, there
were no basis for those inquiries, either. If you are going to say that
thatâ€™s okay, then what Trump did is okay, too.â€
"Oh my gosh. OK you win. I give up!â€ Williams exclaimed.
This is the first time the idiot Williams has had the good sense to admit defeat and concede. He would argue that Jeffrey Epstein should be in charge of a girls middle school if the Democratic Party was in favor of it.
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite,
aka TESS, caught a rare event called a tidal disruption, which is the
scientific term for a black hole ripping a star to shreds as it
consumes it. It's basically pure destruction on a mind-blowing scale.
says this type of cosmic carnage only happens once every 10,000 to
100,000 years in a galaxy the size of the Milky Way. Because there are
billions more galaxies in the universe, scientists have been able to
catch about 40 such events so far, but it's still tough to spot one.
Like Hillary, it shreds lots of balls (of hot gas, in this instance) and sucks everything up in it's black hole. And like the Clinton Crime Syndicate, it's enormously hard to catch on tape.
Democrats Give Illegal Aliens Medical Records
In their quest to always put illegal aliens ahead of native born Americans, the Democratic House of Representatives has passed a bill that gets illegals their medical records well ahead of even veterans.
From the article:
In a Thursday decision, the U.S. House of
Representatives passed a bill to implement new medical screening system
for migrants, ahead of efforts to implement those same medical systems
for U.S. military veterans.
The House passed the bill, H.R. 3525,U.S.
Border Patrol Medical Screening Standards Act, on a vote of 230-184.
The bill requires the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and
Border Patrol officials to implement an Electronic Health Records (EHR)
system, and store and report electronic health records to Congress for
all migrants apprehended at the border, according to The Hill.
So instead of stopping them at the border and keeping them out, we are going to create medical files and give them out.
Naturally, two weasel Republicans - Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Fred Upton (R-MI) supported the Dems on this. (Personally, I'm Fed Upton with these two...badaboom!)
So why aren't the Republicans out trashing the Dominicrats for this?
The Democrats have shown they are more interested in the illegal alien vote than in protecting native born Americans.
I would like you to do us
a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine
knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with
this whole situation with Ukraine, they say CrowdStrike â€¦ I guess you
have one of your wealthy people. â€¦The server, they say Ukraine has it.
There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think
youâ€™re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like
to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like
you to get to the bottom of it.
Not "I would like you to do us a favor, look into Hunter Biden"
The media is lying when it conflates the "favor" with an investigation into Hunter Biden.
This was the feel-good story of the year; a college football fan held up a sign asking for beer money when he was at an Iowa State game. Carson King got his beer money and more; the appeal went viral after appearing on ESPN, and he has to date collected over 1.14 MILLION dollars!
So where's the feel good part? King donated all of it to Iowa State's Children's Hospital. All of it!
Offers flooded in for King after this, including an honor from Anheuser Bush to have his picture appear on the insipid toilet water beer Bush Lite. But that has now all ended. Why?
Because when King was sixteen years old he apparently said something the news media is calling racist (but won't give the details, as far as I could find.) This was years ago, and King, who one would expect has grown quite a bit in that time, is now the villain De jure, the Dr. Mudd of modernity, the the duke of liberal disgust.
A reporter for the Des Moines Register went digging for dirt on this guy and eventually found the tweets. The really ironic thing is that the reporter himself is guilty of the exact same violation of political correctness.
According to Fox 8 Cleveland:
A reporter working on a profile of King for the Des Moines Register
first called attention to the tweet, which referenced a
racially-charged segment on the television show Tosh.0.
King, who was 16 years old at the time, called the tweet "hurtful and embarrassing," according to WHO. He said he doesn't want it to take away from all the good the donations can do for the kids at the children's hospital.
Meanwhile, the Washington Postreports readers then went through the Twitter account of the reporter,
Aaron Calvin. The paper reports that between 2010 and 2013, Calvin
published offensive tweets that included using a racist slur and
mocking legalization of same-sex marriage.
The Washington Postreported that Calvin began deleting and apologized for his own tweets
Tuesday night. His apology said: "Hey just wanted to say that I have
deleted previous tweets that have been inappropriate or insensitive. I
apologize for not holding myself to the same high standards as the
Register holds others."
Calvin's Twitter account is currently locked.
That is what political correctness gets you; a world where even the very best are smeared and excoriated for mistakes in the past - or even the appearance of pc impropriety. This journalist tried to burnish his social justice warrior creds at the expense of a true hero and it came back to bite him. Good. But he has still largely managed to bring the hero down. A-B fired him.
Political correctness is the enforcement of new taboos. A taboo was a south sea religious prohibition against saying and doing certain things. Liberalism is as much a religion as a political view, and it demands no less of not just its adherents but of everyone. Like Islam, all must accept the hegemony or be destroyed.
King was outside of their approved hero category, as he had no social or political ax to grind, so they tried to destroy him.
I'm glad the Register writer got caught. But how often does the despicable American media get away with this sort of thing?
This story reminds me of Othello, where the small minded, venial and jealous Iago plots to bring down the noble Othello. In the end the Moorish general was humbled, but Iago destroyed himself in the process.
Liberals hate good, decent people so much they will destroy themselves to hurt what they see as bourgeouis morality. This is clearly an example of that.
This has become a country where if you raise your head above the crowd you become a target. It doesn't matter why you stand outside the crowd. The only safe place is inside the herd, unseen.

Yep - inside the herd and OBEDIENT. It's about making us all good worker drones.
Bill, have you ever seen the movie Rollerball starring James Caan? Caan playes Jonathan E. , a star in a brutally violent sport. The authorities - the world is run by international corporations - are trying to make him quit. When he refuses his boss, the great John Houseman, tells him "the purpose of Rollerball is to teach the futillity of individula action, and you are ruining that."
California police officer must call off chase after Tesla patrol car's battery runs low
In the real world, people would be dismayed at this. As we know, though, California isn't the real world. The "authorities" there are more concerned with "saving the planet" than saving lives, keeping the peace, or whatever it is the police normally do.
Me, I'd sure hope these cops weren't answering a 911 call I'd placed. And in this case, they weren't.
A Tesla electric patrol car with the Fremont, Calif., police was forced to back off from a pursuit after the vehicle's battery ran low in the middle of the chase.
slowed down to six miles of battery on the Tesla, so I may lose it here
in a sec,â€ the officer in the pursuit said, according to police radio
transmissions obtained by KPIX 5." "If someone else is able, can they maneuver into the No. 1spot?â€
officers then took over the pursuit. The chase was called off after it
was deemed unsafe because of the reckless driving of the suspect. The
suspectâ€™s vehicle was later found abandoned in San Jose.
department is in the midst of a pilot program using 2014 Tesla model S
85 vehicles as part of Fremontâ€™s push to cut greenhouse gas emissions by
25 percent from its 2005 baseline by 2020.
Sure would be interesting to know what it costs them to charge up those coal-powered cars, relative to gasoline-powered police cars. Of course, they aren't interested in saving money, and gas prices in the Peoples' Republic of Californica are the nation's highest.
The Ukrainian Speck in Trump's Eye
So the Democrats think Trump committed a crime (well, they actually know better) when he suggested to the Ukrainian President that they should investigate Hunter Biden, whose father bought him out of trouble there with U.S. taxpayer dollars and then bragged about it on camera. The Democrats accuse Trump of campaign law violations since Crazy Joe is running for President. They have an unnamed whistleblower, who admits he did not even overhear the conversation nor was present. There really is no there there.
But that never stopped the Donkeys and their media allies.
The galling thing is that the Democrats in Congress did in fact asked the Ukrainian Prosecutor General last year to investigate Trump.
While Democrats rush toward impeachment over an anonymous
whistleblower complaint accusing President Donald Trump of requesting
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky investigate former Vice
President Joe Biden, many have ignored the fact that last year, Senate
Democrats wrote to Ukraineâ€™s prosecutor general asking Ukrainian
officials to investigate Trump.
In May of 2018, Sens. Bob
Menendez, D-N.J., Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., wrote
to Ukraineâ€™s Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko asking the Ukraine
government to keep four investigations open related to the Mueller
probe into Russian election interference in the U.S. and indicated that
their support for foreign aid to Ukraine could be in jeopardy.
The nerve of these people is astonishing. It was the Clinton Campaign that colluded with the Ukrainians to dig up dirt on Donald Trump, and it was their intercession that led to the Steele Dossier, which was then used to justify spying on the Trump Campaign. The Democrats are up to their eyeballs in Ukrainian collusion, and yet they try to use this very accusation against Trump!
I thought Trump colluded with the Russians, no their enemy Ukraine. It seems Trump is a faithless, poor "asset" for Vlad Putin.
What does the Bible say about specks and beams in eyes?
So Democrats claim the Trump "pressured" the president of Ukraine to investigate Biden and his son.
What the Democrats are missing, and a point which I have not seen made so far, is that Biden's conduct in Ukraine, his interference in the internal affairs of that nation by means of extortion using $1 billion in US foreign aid, do not need to be investigated. He has admitted doing so, has even boasted gleefully of doing so. What Trump has done is destroy the media's ability to continue to ignore what Biden has done.

So now they have to distract from it by accusing Trump of doing what Biden has admitted to, has boasted of doing.

You guys should have heard Glenn Beck's program this morning (9/26)! None of this is about Trump's call with Ukraine's new president, and Biden is just a sideshow. It's all about hanky-panky by the Obama Administration, and the donkeys are terrified that it will come out. This whole "whistleblower" thing is a sideshow designed to deflect attention -- what's often called "squirrel" politics ("Oh look over there... a squirrel!")
Trump is conducting his own "Russia collusion" investigation. Why? Because he doesn't trust anybody else, and frankly, I don't blame him.
By the way, have you heard Rep. Adam Schiff lying about the contents of the transcript of the phone call? Is there anybody in the House (or indeed anywhere in government) more reprehensible than he is?
Posted by: Dana Mathewson at September 26, 2019 11:17 AM (glpcc)
Bill, you make an excellent point; Biden is already convicted by his own mouth! There is no need to investigate; the perp has given his confession.
Yeah, Dana; no doubt that is exactly what they are doing, trying to hide the Obama/Clinton Ukrainian collusion.
Move for Impeachment a Gift for Trump?
Our friend Bill H. has a fine post at his website about the whole "Ukrainegate" whistleblower business. After rehashing the ridiculousness of the charges since it was Joe Biden who committed the far greater offense, Bill states:
They really think this one is going to work, even though Hillaryâ€™s
crimes were not identical to those attributed to Trump and that she did
not admit them, while Bidenâ€™s crime is identical to that attributed to
Trump, and not only has he admitted it, he actually brags about it
And, as an interesting little sidelight, they condemn Trump for not
delivering the whistleblower to them, notwithstanding that no president
in history and been as viciously prosecutorial of whistleblowers as
Barack Obama, a policy of which Democrats were fully supportive.
Amen to that!
The Democrats just don't know what to do to beat Trump,, and they fear losing the crazies in their base, so they are going to be led by the nose on this issue. Nancy Pelosi (whose nose looks quite graspable, in no small part because she appears to be holding it to avoid a bad smell coming from somewhere below) clearly understands the folly of this but can't stop it. I suspect she will allow this to go only so far and then throw a monkey wrench into the machinery when it looks like they really ARE going to impeach Trump. But I may be giving the old bag of bones too much credit.
But remember this; Saul Alinsky said in Rules for Radicals, the Gospel of the modern cook fringe "
a tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag" and clearly this drive towards impeachment is becoming a drag. The Donks are looking like spoiled children throwing a temper tantrum.
It worked in the past, especially with Richard Nixon. But that was because there was no alternative media to get the other side of the story. Now there are voices opposing the Washington Post and New York Times. Back when Nixon was about to be impeached there were no other voices and people were more trusting then. Now we are perhaps not wiser but at least less gullible.
I suspect Pelosi (the San Francisco Bleat) knows this but just doesn't know what else to do. Or she wants to at least appease the wackadoodles in her base and at the same time bloody Trump. But there is the real danger of a backlash, of the whole witch hunt appearing to be precisely that. The Democrats no longer even try to oppose Trump on policy or even competence.
It all depends on the public, but I see no reason to believe the public has moved away from the President on key issues, and the people who voted for him in 2016 have no reason to vote Democratic now. Even if they hold their noses, they'll probably do it because Trump at least appears to be trying and they know what they will get - and there is always a perverse sense in the human spirit that desires to stick it to those who insist you do things their way. That is what the Democrats, the Media, and the Establishment Republicans demand.
Oh, and remember this; Bill Clinton had high popularity numbers despite being shown to be a degenerate. A black man (I don't remember who) called Clinton the "first black President" because he was "pursued by The Man". How much more so is that true of Donald Trump? If blacks liked Clinton for his bucking Ken Starr, how much more will they like DS, who has "attitude", who eats fast food, and doesn't take any crap off his enemies? Couple that with the fact black unemployment is way down and you get at least a suggestion of a fair sized defection to Trump by black voters.
Frankly, I think this move for impeachment was a huge gift to the Orange Menace.
Believe it was author Toni Morrison -- writer of works of seminal literature such as "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings" (who can forget it?) and other similar oeuvre, who called Bill the "first black president," and was misunderstood for the remark. As you say, it had to do with the beating he was taking regarding his sexual misconduct, not from any empathy toward the black community, and I believe that some time later, she expressed some regret that she'd called him that. Perhaps she didn't think it all the way through?
A thought: I have to admit Bill was a better president as the "first black president" than the real first one. Want to argue with me?

No argument there, Dana; Bill Clinton was unprincipled to the point where he could be influenced by both public opinion and partisan pressure, so he would work with the other side. BHO was entirely ideological, unmoving and rigid and solely about power. He never made any concessions, no matter how small, and he was willing to destroy the country in the process of getting what he wanted. Clinton at least wanted to be remembered as a great president, so he wasn't willing to kill the "patient" to "cure" it. That's not to say Clinton wasn't a horribly destructive force; He gave the Chinese ICBM technology via Loral Aerospace fixing their satellite launch capabilities for campaign cash. That's just one instance of the evil the man wrought. But Obama would do that not for personal gain but to advance the Revolution. Much worse.
The incidents were part
of a robbery spree that targeted "easy prey,â€ people who were
intoxicated, distracted and alone, police said. In one of the attacks,
caught on surveillance video near Target Field, the suspects kicked and
punched the victim, ran over him with a bicycle and hit him with
people, ranging in age from 15 to 27 years old, were charged with
various counts of robbery in connection with the two separate
incidents. Only one person, Adrian Cooper, 25, of Brooklyn Center, was
charged in both of the crimes.
And if you
call the police you might get shot by a Somali cop, like that poor
Australian woman did when she tried to report a prowler.
Notice too the attacks were on "soft targets" . That is really despicable.
These were really brutal crimes, and charges have been filed.
