Media Meltdown As Impeachment Fails

The highly biased news media is having a meltdown as reality begins to return to Washington, DC.  The Senate impeachment trial of Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America will most likely end today.  All signs now point to his acquittal.  Democrat House managers have failed miserably in their efforts.  Naturally, the Fake News Media are blaming Senate Republicans for being cowardly in allowing the 'Orange Monster' to continue his reign of alleged terror.  Nancy Pelosi is blaming his legal defense team, saying that they should all be disbarred.  That they have trashed the Constitution.  The TRUTH, however, is that it was Pelosi and her minions who tossed out all reason, common sense and Constitutional law.  As this boring and ridiculous exercise in bad politics comes to an end, even I am chuckling at their foolishness, despite the reality that so much time and money has been wasted.

Senate Question Hokum

The Senate impeachment trial continued yesterday as the circus moved into the questioning phase.  Senators have 16 hours to submit written questions to either the House managers or Trump defense legal team.  The questions are passed to Chief Justice John Roberts, who reads them and then the group, or groups, are allowed 5 minutes to answer.  In cases where the questions are posed to both sides, each group gets two and a half minutes to give their responses.  Questions are given by alternating parties in the Senate, starting with Republicans, then followed by one from Democrat senators.  It became quite obvious that the first few dozen questions were planned, allowing for canned responses by the teams.  But there were some surprises, namely one when Senator Rand Paul attempted to expose the name of the so-called whistleblower.

Trump Legal Defense Team Finishes

The legal defense team for President Donald Trump wrapped up their opening arguments yesterday on the Senate floor.  They only made 2 presentations, lasting about 2 hours on their third day.  Overall, they used about 11 of their 24 hours, half of what the House Democrat managers used.  Their essential arguments were that President Trump did nothing to warrant an impeachment and that the House managers failed to present any factual evidence of any crime, let alone one that meets the historical standard of a "high crime or misdemeanor".  While Majority Leader Mitch McConnell admitted to not having sufficient votes, yet, to block any additional witnesses or documents to be considered, there are signs that the trial could end as early as Friday.

John Bolton Manuscript Nothing Burger

Will John Bolton be a witness in the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump?  We may learn the answer to that question later this week.  The New York Times published a story the other day, claiming to have a leaked copy of a rough draft of the John Bolton manuscript.  Bolton has a 'tell-all' book due out in March.  Last month, a copy of the manuscript was submitted to the White House for review, a standard practice to prevent sensitive information on national security to be made paublic.  According to the NY Times article, Bolton allegedly claims that President Trump told him that there was a direct link between aid to Ukraine and political dirt on the Biden family.  However, the article did not have any actual quotes, nor any proof that the information is accurate.  Neither Bolton, his lawyer, nor his publisher verified the alleged passage in the manuscript.

Trump Legal Team Takes Over

This morning, the legal team for President Donald John Trump took over center stage at the Senate impeachment trial.  Being a Saturday, the session was brief, lasting just over 2 hours.  Trump's defense lawyers opened with setting the stage for how they intend to rebut the endless droning we heard from the House managers for over 22 hours.  While some of the presentation was low key, wrapped in technicalities, it was effective and informative.  For example, we learned that the reason why the White House rejected any subpoenas from the House on Ukraine was because the House NEVER VOTED to allow for subpoenas during the first 71 days of their 78 day sham.  Even then, after they passed H.R. 660 guiding the House Judiciary Committee's hearings, Nancy Pelosi closed the hearings down after just two days of hearings.

Rudy Giuliani Podcast, High Noon For Biden

At noon today, Rudy Giuliani will launch a podcast, which, over the course of the next few weeks, will detail the true level of corruption of Joe Biden, his family, Ukraine and other nations.  Appearing on Fox & Friends this morning, Giuliani gave a short version of what we can expect.  Basically, according to Rudy, the whole Democrat impeachment of President Trump is a "projection" of actual corruption begun by Joe Biden amd the Obama administration.  How, in mid January, 2016, Obama's National Security team held a meeting.  Giuliani believes that the alleged whistleblower in the Trump impeachment may have been present.  During this meeting, Obama officials decided to ask the Ukraine government to dig up dirt on then candidate Donald Trump, his son, Don Jr., and on Paul Manafort.  Why ask Ukraine?  Because,according to Giuliani, there is a long connection of corruption between the Ukraine government and the Democrat Party.

Tulsi Sues Hillary $50M

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, suing Hillary for $50 Million dollars.  Gabbard claims that Hillary defamed her when Hillary appeared on a podcast on October 17, hinting that Gabbard and Jill Stein were being groomed by the Russian government.  Hillary did not name Gabbard at first, though she did allude to her, while naming Jill Stein explicitly.  Gabbard believes that Hillary Clinton accused her of being a Russian agent and a traitor at worst.  At best, merely a stooge which Russia is using to stir up trouble.  Hillary thinks that Stein, and allegedly Gabbard, are both being groomed tobecome 3rd Party candidates.  Some of this goes back to 2016.  Gabbard was one of the few elected Democrats who endorsed Bernie Sanders over Hillary.  As for Jill Stein, Hillary considers Stein as one of the 50 or so reasons why Trump defeated her.  Stein was the Green Party presidential candidate and in some battleground states, got enough votes which, had they went for Hillary, would have put Hilldog in the White House.

Day 1 Of Impeachment Trial

Day 1 of the impeachment trial ended Thursday at 2am, Eastern.  The 13-hour session was filled with Senate votes on amendments to the trial rules.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did concede to some changes prior to the beginning of the session.  Instead of only giving each side 2 days to complete their 24 hours of argument,they now have 3 days.  McConnell also allowed for the paperwork from the House hearings to be admitted into the record without a reading.  Then Chuck Schumer began submitting amendments to be considered.  Both House managers and Trump's defense team argued on each.  Of the 11 amendments offered, 10 were tabled with strict, party-line votes of 53-47. Only one vote had a Republican defection, Susan Collins of Maine over allowing some briefs entered into the record.  So that one got voted down and tabled, 52-48.  At one point, about 1am Thursday, Chief Justice John Roberts injected himself into the discourse, admonishing both the House managers and defense team for the rhetoric.  Things had gotten nasty as Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff accused Republican Senators of being part of a cover-up.  The leader of the Trump defense team, Whoite House legal counsel Pat Cipollone, called out Nadler by name for this.

Impeachment Trial To Begin

Today, the impeachment trial of Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America, begins on the Senate floor.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will first present the rules to manage how the trial will unfold.  These rules are nearly identitical to those used in the impeachment trial of then President William Jefferson Clinton.  Even Trump-hater, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT), agrees with that!  So, the odds are that McConnell's set of rules will pass a Senate floor vote.  The rules will give House managers prosecuting President Trump 24 hours to present their case starting at 1pm Eastern on Wednesday.  This upsets Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), because it means that much of the 'evidence' will take place at night, unseen by most Americans.  Of course, the so-called 'evidence' consists entirely of hearsay and personal opinion.  There is no actual physical evidence, no 'smoking gun', that any crime was committed.

WAR, MSNBC vs CNN

The purity tests of the Woke Generation has reached a boiling point.  We now have a war brewing between Liberal news media giants, MSNBC and CNN.  This was bound to happen.  Both play to the same audience, Far-Left conspiracy, Trump haters.  For most of the past 3 years, both have been anticipating the collapse of the Trump presidency.  First they pushed the Russian-collusion hoax, which failed miserably.  Now, both are pushing the Ukraine story, which is even flimsier.  This story got even more weak with the introduction of Lev Parnas.  A Ukrainian former associate of Rudy Giuliani, Parnas is currently out on bail facing federal charges of fraud, lying to investigators, and other crimes.  Yet, the Trump haters have trotted him out becuase Parnas claims to have evidence of the Trump White House trying to force the Ukrainian government to launch criminal investigations against the Biden family and their ties to the oil and natural gas company, Burisma.  As well as activitoes of a Ukrainian company, Cloud Strike, and the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign coordinating with the former Ukrainian administrationin 2016.

Dutch Intelligence On Russian Hacking

A new story from the New York Times indicates that the FBI and DOJ are taking a closer look at James Comey for leaking documents.  The former head of the FBI was harshly criticized in the DOJ Inspector General report last year for several issues, including leaking his memos on private talks with President Trump.  Now, it seems that hackers working for Dutch intelligence picked up information on Russian hackers concerning the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.  One intercept appears to be an email between former DNC Chairwoman, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) with Leonard Bernardo of the George Soros funded Open Society Foundation.  The email allegedly shows Wasserman-Schultz assuring Bernardo that then Attorney General Loretta Lynch would never prosecute Hillary Clinton for using her private email server to send and receive classified material.  However, there is no confirmation that this communication is authentic.

Impeachment Moves To Senate

The articles of impeachment finally moved to the U.S. Senate yesterday.  First, Nancy Pelosi held an 'engrossment ceremony', where she signed the documents which were to be carried across the Rotunda.  A gaggle of House Democrat committee leaders attended, each getting a custom pen with Pelosi's name on it.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accepted the paperwork and informed the Senate floor as to what lies ahead.  Today, around noon, the House Democrats named as prosecutors for the trial will visit the Senate.  Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, will also visit to be sworn in as the presiding judge for the impeachment trial.  He will then take the Senate chair and swear in all 100 senators to be jurors.  The trial will officially begin next Tuesday.

US-China Trade Deal Signed

President Donald J. Trump signed Phase One of the new US-China trade deal today.  An elaborate ceremony at the White House marked the occasion.  A bevy of official Washington, Big Business, and a delegation of Chinese led by their Vice Premier attended the signing.  President Trump was in a jovial mood, poking fun at many of the American politicians and business leaders in the room.  He even had some fun with Fox Business Channel star, "The Great Lou Dobbs"!  Phase One of the new US-China Trade Deal will guarantee upwards of $225 Billion dollars of China purchasing U.S. exports.  About $50 Billion dollars worth of agricultural products, energy, and services, along with some $75 Billion in manufactured goods.  China will also crackdown on intellectual theft, counterfieting and ease forced technology transfers.  They will also reduce their currency devaluation.  America will maintain a 25% tarfiff on some $250 Billion dollars worth of Chinese imports into the United States.  On another $350 Billion in imports, the current 10% tariff will be lowered to 7.5%.  These tariffs will remain in place until the Phase Two trade deal is reached, which may not be till next year.

Media Ignores Iran Protests

The American news media is ignoring the latest Iran protests.  They have been ignoring plenty of news.  A new study of what the major broadcasters have been talking about on their evening news programs has been shocking.  Media networks ABC, CBS and NBC have recently aired some 890 minutes of news about the Congress trying to impeach President Donald Trump.  Under 200 minutes about the drone strike which killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.  Hardly any coverage on the protests following Iran's admission to shooting down a Ukrainian air liner.  Only 9 minutes of coverage about our splendid economy.  Media bias did cover demonstrations in Iran protesting the death of Soleimani.  But when the people of Iran got angry at their own government instead of America and Trump, the Fake News Media went silent.

Megxit Monday

Welcome to Megxit Monday!  Yes!  Today is the day for the big royal pow-wow in the UK.  Last Wednesday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they want to "step back" from their royal duties.  That they will split their time in Canada and the UK and will seek to become more financially independent.  They made the announcement in public without consulting with Queen Elizabeth II.  A decision which has reportedly disappointed the Queen and now has led to quite the bru-hah-hah.  Or maybe 'bro-hah-hah' since it seems that even Prince William is irritated with his brother's attitude.

Pelosi Disproportionate Stupidity

I accuse House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of disproportionate stupidity!  While it is true that nearly all Democrats are stupid, Nancy Pelosi is far more stupid than her peers.  This is unfair!  She should really try harder to be intelligent once in a while to allow her fellow Liberals to be as stupid as she is.  There are several reasons why Nancy Pelosi has been acting more stupid than usual in just the past week.  Her holding the articles of impeachment is an ongoing example.  Obviously, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is not going to knuckle under to Pelosi and give her any power over the U.S. Senate.  Just today, Pelosi did two stupid things.  First, she called President Trump's use of a drone strike killing Iranian general Qassem Soleimani a "disproportionate response".  Really?  So one Hellfire missile equals years of terrorism and bloody murder?  The second act of stupidity committed by Nancy Pelosi today is the House resolution to curb Trump's war powers.  The vote is nonbinding, which means it is nothing.  Another waste of time.

Iran Attacks Air Bases

Late last night, Iran launched some 15 ballistic missiles against two air bases used by U.S. forces in Iraq.  One hit a base in northern Iraq near Erbil, east of Mosul.  Ten of the missiles targetted the AIN Al Assad Air Base northwest of Baghdad.  There, some 1,500 U.S. troops are stationed on the sprawling base, covering some 25 square miles.  Four of the Iranian missiles fired failed to reach Iraq. President Trump tweeted on Twitter that, "All is well", as there have been no reports of any damage nor injuries. Iran issued a tweet stating that this attack was the "conclusion" of their response to the death of Quds Force commander, General Qassem Soleimani.  He was killed in a drone strike which took out Soleimani and several other known Iranian and Iraqi leaders responsible for last week's assault on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.

Qasem Soleimani Dead

Qasem Soleimani was killed yesterday by the United States using a drone strike.  The 62-year old general was commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Quds Force.  Their version of a combined intelligence and special operations unit.  Soleimani was appointed head of the Quds in 1998 and in 2005 was designated as a terrorist by the U.S. government.  Under his leadership, Iran supplied and funded a wide range of terrorist organizations, including Hezbolah in Lebanon and insurgent fighters in Yeman.  Soleimani was behind supplying Iraqi insurgents fighting against the new Iraqi government and the U.S. led coaltion which liberated Iraq from Saddam Hussein.  He gave insurgents upgraded EFP munitions, making their IED roadside explosives more ndeadly against our troops.  Over 600 U.S. soldiers were killed by these Iranian supplied weapons, along with thousands being wounded.  Many of our soldiers were maimed, losing limbs, due to Soleimani.

MSNBC Danger To National Security

Is MSNBC a danger to our national security?  In my opinion, they most certainly are!  Along with the rest of the so-called Media.  The recent assault on the U.S. embassy in Bagdad by Iranian-backed militia and sabre rattling by North Korea are good examples.  In both cases, MSNBC and other 'Fake-News-Media' promoted a very anti-Trump viewpoint.  But more to the point, they emboldened our enemies.  MSNBC gets my special attention as they did this by trotting out a foreign policy has-been, Wendy Sherman.  When she was with the Clinton administration, she helped craft the bribe to North Korea to stop their nuclear weapons program, which, failed miserably.  When she was with the Obama administration, Wendy helped craft the Iran nuclear deal, which bribed Iran with $150 billion dollars in cash, along with hundreds of billions in bank assets.  Again, the result was not only a failure, but gave Iran the money to export terrorism, including funding the very militia unit in Iraq which attacked our embassy.
