Yeah, won’t be watching the kabuki theater. What a sham…

I’ll pass, I can’t stomach their sanctimonius blathering. “It pains us to do this..” No it doesn’t, don’t lie. My intuition tells me that this will be their high-water mark. Have your fun, then the million-pound sh*thammer drops. Fingers crossed

Watching; Farcical, Boring… It’s abundantly evident that 1) Everything the Dems have done (stealing/hiding officially-requested documents, denying gifted funds unless conditions were met, etc.) continue to be *ignored* and/or denied (but mostly just ignored and deemed “debunked” w/o any evidence of such), with parroting by the MSM. 2) *Any* investigation into such is deemed unimportant at best, or a terrible offense at worst (consider Hillary, Biden, etc.), whether it’s an investigation/exposure by the GOP OR public/private enterprises like WikiLeaks, etc. Much like progies claiming police can’t arrest criminals for their actions — “It’s not the crime per se that is… Read more »

BTW Norah O’Donnell & Major Garrett are now interviewing Reince Priebus (CBS) during the break; they simply refuse to accept ANYTHING he says in opposition to their officially-mandated narrative and talking points as put to them by the DNC. It’s amazing. Other networks’ analyses are even worse.

Official narrative indeed…I just heard on Rush a compilation he played of the media and they ALL used the words, “overwhelming evidence.”

Good soldiers following their talking points memo.

There is zero chance that DJT will be removed from office via impeachment. No president in history has been (Nixon was driven from office. He was The Man Who Knew Too Much), the framers deliberately set the bar high, requiring the votes of two thirds of the senate to convict. They realized that impeachment is not a trivial matter. Even if they got all the RINO’s on board they would still fall far short. The demons have turned it into theater of the absurd however with their idiotic, nonsensical pretexts. They are going for broke with their plan B “insurance… Read more »

This is a modern version of a Stalinist show trial.

The GOP clan are doing a pretty solid job of tag-teaming the “witnesses” in cross-examination. But it’s mostly just a re-hashing of everything we’ve heard before. I see a lot of talking but not a lot of listening; *beliefs* seem to be held in higher esteem than are facts, unfortunately. But there have been some moments of levity, which were refreshing (such as Jordan going after Taylor, then both smiling).

Oh, and the young guy sitting behind Taylor… he seems to be blinking some sort of Morse code, but I can’t figure it out.

Prosecuting Attorneys often use that “rehashing” to make the people repeat their stories ad nauseum and often discrepancies arise between the first recitation and the last,giving the Attorney the loose thread needed to unravel the Defense’s story.

I’m waiting for the President’s Legal Representatives and the Attorney General to file formal Charges against Pelosi,Shiff,Schumer,Adler and all the others complicit in the 4 or so attempts at a Coup to remove a duly elected and falsely accused President. Makes me smile to imagine the looks on their faces when they get their Indictments…..

We hope. There may be some indictments, mainly lower-level munchkins (sh*t always rolls downhill, does it not?), but I think DJT will use the plausible threat of indictments to achieve his ends, getting the demons to retreat. They won’t go away and be defeated permanently, God will have to do that. But they may have to sacrifice one of their big fish as DJT will need to show them that he means business. I only hope it’s Schiff, the treasonous Stalinist pedophile. He’s the one driving this sh*tshow, Pelosi et al are just following the script. But he’s a tribalist… Read more »

One thing that I found interesting from Taylor’s testimony was that he said his staffer “overheard” Trump’s phone call to Sondland because Trump’s voice was so loud… isn’t that eavesdropping? Isn’t that a felony when it’s a private convo of the PotUS? The staffer told Taylor what he *thought* he’d heard Trump say, and Taylor ran with it… Seriously??? As Taylor was relaying the story, you could kind of see on his face that he was thinking to himself, “This doesn’t sound so good now that I’m saying it out loud in a public hearing.” OTOH, this story makes it… Read more »

“Bribe” must have polled better than “quid pro quo.”

They are too obvious…

Apparently, a day later or so, it was morphed into “extortion” as their word-of-the-day, since there was no evidence of any bribery on Trump’s part. Nor will they find any for extortion, I’m afraid. Even the news anchors on the talk shows were ridiculing the Dem leaders (such as the moronic Jim Himes, D-CT, born in Lima, Peru) for their change of talking points last week. It’s all an effort to go after emotions of the unwashed masses willing to accept whatever the Left says about Trump. They understand terms typically used to describe “very bad people”, the mob/mafia, etc.… Read more »

Couple of amusing Democrat examinations of Marie Yovanovich today: Eric Swalwell, who spewed nothing but lies (snippets of things Trump said/tweeted in past, completely out of context). And right now, Denny Heck, who’s “mad as heck” and very emotional, as he was on Wednesday. But not in a manly way. I suspect he was lactating privately… Adam Schitt was quick to shut down Republicans as quickly as he could. My opinion of Yovanovich isn’t entirely bad. I think she’s being used by the Left (big surprise). And the more this charade goes on, the more she sees it. It appears… Read more »

One more thing.
Val Demmings (D-FL) is now smearing Mulvaney by quoting him out of context (Trump too; notice a pattern?). And she’s claiming Trump’s administration has “smeared” Yovanovich for being a woman

I honestly don’t know when this garbage started. Was it when such hearings began being shown live (and/or recorded) on TV? Is it the old “cameras in a courtroom make folks act like monkeys” phenomenon? Or is it more a sign of the increasing crassness and jettisoning of facts and decorum generally that has been coming on for a few decades now (which the Left blames on…

wait for it,
Trump)?

Schitt ended today’s show by talking about why Giuliani was in Ukraine. Here’s something interesting I found after Taylor mentioned on Wednesday about having met Giuliani in 2008 in Ukraine (or at least knowing of him being there). I looked it up. Turns out Rudy was asked to represent an ex World Boxing Champ, Vitali Klitschko, in his bid to run as mayor of Kiev… based on an anti-corruption campaign. Yeah. And the idea stuck with Rudy due to the amount of corruption he discovered there while searching for how Klitschko could work to begin cleaning it up. Context matters.… Read more »

Clearly the Deep State is accusing President Trump of EXACTLY what Barack Obama did in 2016. The Democrats are deluded. Pelosi is trying to impeach Trump for what Obama should have been impeached for. And now, Obama must be indicted and incarcerated for sedition. Shortly after President Trump took office, Obama, the veteran cadre of Communism, met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing. Very recently, Obama held an unauthorized meeting at the UN as the “former” POTUS of the USA with nations such as Canada, Mexico, Lebanon, China, El Slavador, France, Columbia, Iran, Nicaragua,… Read more »

Tuesday morning, Nov. 19, 2019:
US House Intel Comm 3rd day hearing on Impeachment/Coup Inquiries…
First impression — every word that comes out of the mouth of Chairman Schitt is either incomplete, incorrect, or an outright lie. Every word.

Ranking member Devin Nunes did a good job of correcting the public’s view of what’s actually been going on:

Still trying to figure Pence’s aide’s angle in this; I pretty much get Vindman’s — Russian immigrant, hates Russia, wants to be sure Ukraine isn’t held under Putin’s thumb, etc. It’d be interesting to know whether Trump has ever disrespected Ms. Williams in tweet or otherwise.

Yep. He sure did, and they brought it up. It wasn’t much.
