WSJ: Rick Perry says Trump told him to call Rudy Giuliani about Ukraine

Westlake Legal Group Perry-7 WSJ: Rick Perry says Trump told him to call Rudy Giuliani about Ukraine Ukraine The Blog Rudy Giuliani Rick Perry President Trump Joe Biden corruption

The Wall Street Journal has a piece on Secretary of Energy Rick Perry and his involvement in Ukraine. A surprising twist emerges – President Trump instructed Perry to “visit with Rudy” about concerns the two had about corruption in Ukraine. During that “visit with Rudy”, Perry was given three reasons why he and Trump were concerned about Ukraine’s commitment to fighting corruption.

“And as I recall the conversation, he said, ‘Look, the president is really concerned that there are people in Ukraine that tried to beat him during this presidential election,’ ” Mr. Perry said. “ ‘He thinks they’re corrupt and…that there are still people over there engaged that are absolutely corrupt.’ ”

Mr. Perry said the president’s lawyer didn’t make any explicit demands on the call. “Rudy didn’t say they gotta do X, Y and Z,” Mr. Perry said. “He just said, ‘You want to know why he ain’t comfortable about letting this guy come in? Here’s the reason.’ ”

In the phone call, Mr. Giuliani blamed Ukraine for the dossier about Mr. Trump’s alleged ties to Russia that was created by a former British intelligence officer, Mr. Perry said, and asserted that Ukraine had Mrs. Clinton’s email server and “dreamed up” evidence that helped send former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to jail.

“I don’t know whether that was crap or what,” Mr. Perry added, “but I’m just saying there were three things that he said. That’s the reason the president doesn’t trust these guys.”

Ukrainian corruption isn’t breaking news. The belief that Hillary’s email server is in Ukraine is a different thing. Rudy and Trump believe that CrowdStrike is mixed up in the DNC hack during the 2016 election. The Ukrainian government hasn’t been proven to be involved with the DNC hack, though Russia has. Trump’s request for Zelensky to look into potential illegal meddling during the 2016 election at the hands of Joe Biden is how the current impeachment inquiry hearings began.

Perry said that Giuliani didn’t make any demands of him. And, he is steering clear of any validation of Rudy’s concerns. Perry finds himself involved in the Congressional investigations. Trump blamed his phone call with Zelensky on Perry. And, when it looked like Trump was throwing Perry under the bus, rumors circulated that Perry has one foot out of the door. Perry said he will cooperate with Congress.

So, Perry is shedding some light on why President Trump doesn’t trust the efforts of Ukraine to make reforms necessary to combat longtime corruption concerns. Rudy Giuliani looks to be the source of Trump’s information on the ground. Rudy is running a shadow diplomacy operation.

As I have written about in previous posts, Rick Perry’s mission is to develop relationships in Ukraine and make mutually beneficial energy deals. It is important for countries that are dependent on Russia as a source of energy to have alternatives, preferably an American alternative. Perry was urging President Trump to develop his own relationship with the new Ukrainian president, who has expressed a desire to make the reforms necessary in his country. Trump, with Rudy in his ear, hesitated to meet with Zelensky until he was more certain that Zelensky was doing all he could.

Meanwhile, Perry is still on the job and expects to be there, at least through Thanksgiving.

Mr. Perry again disputed recent reports that have claimed he was planning to leave the administration, but he did leave the door open to his departure. He said he expects to be at the Energy Department at Thanksgiving, but gave a less definitive answer when asked about staying beyond that, through year’s end.

”I don’t know,” he said. “I’m working at the will of the president, just like I always have.”

We’ll see if he makes it to year’s end.

Even With AOC and The Squad Endorsing Bernie, His Campaign Is Over.

Time for some honest analysis after the Tuesday CNN Debate Debacle on the candidate who has raised more money in the 3rd quarter than anyone else, Bernie Sanders.

The Sanders campaign raised just over $25 million for the 3rd quarter barely beating out Elizabeth Warren at just under $25 million according to CBS News. That would have made an interesting race going into the 4th quarter of this year as the time runs short before the Iowa caucuses and the New Hamshire primaries for both of these candidates.

Then the first week of October hit and Sanders had a heart attack and that changed the makeup of this whole primary season.

The announcement yesterday that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and the other members of The Squad will be endorsing Bernie is just a 24-hour temporary shot in the arm that will have no effect on this campaign’s demise. Nice gesture but ultimately meaningless.

So why am I saying this?

According to the CDC, Bernie Sanders was one of 790,000 Americans who have a heart attack every year. Being this was his first, he was one of 580,000 that had that happen this year. Sanders is to be commended that he took the signs seriously and had it treated immediately. This undoubtedly saved his life.

However, with all that positive news, these facts remain.

Tuesday night, anyone who was tuning in at one point or another was watching Sanders more closely than anyone else. Because of our natural curiosity to see if a 78-year-old man who is two weeks from a heart attack looks like he is ok. Every single one of us thought about it and many media outlets talked about it before the debate.

This is not meant to be mean or cruel. This is just the reality of what people think and the health reality of what a 78-year-old man who just had a major heart event goes through.

Anyone who goes through a heart attack and is lucky enough to survive has a recuperation period that has to be taken. Naturally, the younger you are, the shorter that period is generally. Bernie is, no doubt, a vibrant guy for a 78-year-old. He is also now a vibrant 78 yr old who just suffered a heart attack and wisely has been resting at home. His first campaign event since his hospital stay will be this Saturday where he will get endorsed by AOC.

However, the campaign calendar is not going to afford Bernie the time to recover. The Iowa caucuses are in 109 days and the New Hampshire primary is one week later.

I would much rather have a vigorous Bernie Sanders out on the trail making his case for his ideas and that he be defeated in that arena than for him to be sidelined like this. Plus I love Larry Davids’s impersonation of him and I want more of that.

Sanders will still be able to influence the Democratic race for the nomination from the sidelines and yes it will be from the sidelines. I’m sure all of the candidates left will be lobbying him heavily for his endorsement as they should.

However, it is only a matter of time before the lack of campaign events scheduled and the whispers of “Where is Bernie?” become the norm and ultimately force him out of the race. Sanders has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with and he still can be for many years to come.

Just not as a candidate for President of the United States.

Twitter: World leaders are not above our policies, with exceptions

Westlake Legal Group TwitterSymbolw-Darkside715 Twitter: World leaders are not above our policies, with exceptions twitter The Blog Social Media President Trump kamala harris First Amendment Elizabeth Warren Censorship

Last June our Twitter overlords announced that labeling tweets from government officials that break rules against bullying and abusive behavior will soon begin. At the time it was seen as a veiled attempt toward censoring President Trump’s tweets. After the announcement was made, Twitter’s stock took a 1% hit and ended the day down 1.4%.

Twitter’s new policy is to apply to verified accounts of government officials, representatives or candidates for a government position who have more than 100,000 followers. Trump critics frequently complain about his tweets and many users call for him to be suspended from using the platform. Responding to leftist demands, in January 2018 Twitter executives explained that such elimination of world leaders’ tweets isn’t a good idea.

The rule marks a shift in Twitter’s response to how it handles tweets from world leaders. In January 2018, the company said it was concerned about blocking public access to information from world leaders, even if they seem controversial.

“Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate,” Twitter wrote at the time. “It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.”

“We review Tweets by leaders within the political context that defines them, and enforce our rules accordingly,” Twitter said in the 2018 post.

While protecting the First Amendment rights of President Trump, Twitter made it clear that it will be harder to share messages that violate policies. There will be no more simple re-tweets of them. There will be the ability to retweet with a comment, though. However, questions remained about what exactly abuses of policy are in the Twitterverse.

Tuesday a blog post was posted by Twitter to clarify “enforceable offenses” that could result in tweets being removed.

“We want to make it clear today that the accounts of world leaders are not above our policies entirely,” the company wrote in a blog post. “This post seeks to provide clear insight into how we address content from world leaders on Twitter today, and will serve as our statement on the decisions we make, rather than our teams providing feedback on individual Tweets and decisions.”

Among the behaviors that could force Twitter to take action include promoting terrorism, direct threats of violence against an individual, sharing private information or intimate photos, engaging in child sexual exploitation and encouraging or promoting self-harm, the company said.

Straddling the fence, Twitter claims it will err on the side of keeping the tweets up, but with a flag so that viewers make their own decision if the tweet is seen or not. The company realizes it is in unchartered waters.

With critical elections and shifting political dynamics around the world, we recognize that we’re operating in an increasingly complex and polarized political culture. These are constantly evolving challenges and we’ll keep our policies and approach under advisement, particularly as we learn more about the relationship between Tweets from world leaders and the potential for offline harm.

This post seeks to provide clear insight into how we address content from world leaders on Twitter today, and will serve as our statement on the decisions we make, rather than our teams providing feedback on individual Tweets and decisions. We’ve also updated our dedicated Help Center page to provide a significantly more detailed breakdown of how we make decisions regarding the use of the public interest notice.

Our goal is to enforce our rules judiciously and impartially. In doing so, we aim to provide direct insight into our enforcement decision-making, to serve public conversation, and protect the public’s right to hear from their leaders and to hold them to account.

It is interesting that Twitter decided to make some clarifications this week and the day of the Democrat debate. Kamala Harris calls for Twitter to knock Trump off the platform while Elizabeth Warren just chuckles when asked if she agrees and says no. Warren even had a line all ready for Harris during the debate on Tuesday night. “I don’t just want to push Trump off Twitter, I want to push him out of the White House.”

Elizabeth Warren is no friend to Big Tech these days. She’s sworn off contributions from the industry, too.

While Warren demurred on joining Harris’s plea, she had plenty of ire to offer the country’s largest technology companies: Twitter, Amazon and Facebook.

Warren called out Amazon on Tuesday, citing its wide-ranging grasp over customers, suppliers and the data that connects them.

“You get to be the umpire in the baseball game and you get to be the team, but you don’t get to do both at the same time,” she said.

Also on Tuesday, Warren pledged to turn down contributions of more than $200 from executives at Big Tech companies, large banks, private equity firms or hedge funds.

Despite the demonization of Big Tech by Warren, Silicon Valley is falling in line and donating to her campaign as they begin to fear that Biden won’t last. We’ll see how Twitter implements the new policy and which “leaders” will be affected.

Leftist Group is DEMANDING That Democrats Name Who They Would Appoint To Supreme Court

The Left wants a list of who POTUS candidates would put in this building. 

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, even if it involves progressives copying Donald Trump.

Ripping a page right out of Donald Trump’s election playbook from 2016, the group Demand Justice has called for all the Democrats running for President declare publicly who that would nominate out of the handy dandy list they provided.

How convenient and very copy cat-ish of Trump 3 years ago.

According to The Washington Post

Democratic presidential contenders are coming under increased pressure from their base to take a page from Donald Trump’s 2016 playbook and release a shortlist of potential Supreme Court nominees — one part of a larger strategy from party activists to make the courts a central issue in the 2020 race.

Demand Justice, a group founded to counteract the conservative wing’s decades-long advantage over liberals in judicial fights, will release a list of 32 suggested Supreme Court nominees for any future Democratic president as they ramp up their push for the 2020 contenders to do the same.

The slate of potential high court picks includes current and former members of Congress, top litigators battling the Trump administration’s initiatives in court, professors at the nation’s top law schools and public defenders. Eight are sitting judges. They have established track records in liberal causes that Demand Justice hopes will energize the liberal base.

Seems like the progressives have FINALLY learned the lesson of paying some attention to the third branch of the government.

Now you can go ahead and take a look at that list and if you are like me, be absolutely puzzled by who all those people are. Lucky for us commoners, Carrie Severino from the Judicial Crisis Network just yesterday wrote a piece over at National Review called Demand Justice’s SCOTUS List Is Too Extreme Even for Obama that helps give us an idea of the backgrounds of these folks.

From the article…

Demand Justice’s list has 32 names on it. Only four of those are Obama-nominated judges. Shockingly, only eight have any judicial experience at all! While President Trump’s list of Supreme Court nominees currently includes 24 individuals, of whom 23 are experienced federal or state judges, the extremists at Demand Justice have clearly taken a different tack. Their list — which they are lobbying Democratic candidates to adopt — is wholly consumed by far-left activism and identity politics.

They see the courts as their ticket to implementing their radical policy agenda, which includes gutting the First and Second Amendments, establishing a right to illegal immigration and abortion on demand straight through birth, and destroying our economy by imposing burdensome regulations on everyone from Main Street to Wall Street.

When I first read this I thought, well maybe the Obama nominated judges that were confirmed don’t have enough seasoning yet. Then further on reading, I find out that 24 of them don’t have ANY JUDICIAL EXPERIENCE at all.

Did no one pay attention during the Harriet Miers fiasco under Bush 43?

So the left has put together a list of people that they want on the court that the vast majority have ZERO experience on the bench. They are straight-up activists. I actually admire Demand Justice brazen truthfulness here in trying to push this on the Dems.

Severino commented on twitter about how the candidates when finally asked ran from the subject and tried to change the subject like it was the plague.

What this tells me is that the left is organizing to do the same thing conservatives have done but the candidates are not focused on this at the stage of the game they are currently in. This might change after a nominee is picked but for now, it looks like they are more interested in impeachment than who they would put onto the court.

That works for me.

It’s The Economy Stupid

James Carville would be rolling over in his grave if he were in one now being Trump could use his famous line from the 1992 election. The way Carville looks though, he might be sleeping in one actually.

According to a story over at Moody’s   the 45th President will keep his place at 1600 Pennsylvania for another 4 years if the economy holds up.

President Donald Trump looks likely to cruise to reelection next year under three different economic models Moody’s Analytics employed to gauge the 2020 race.

Barring anything unusual happening, the president’s Electoral College victory could easily surpass his 2016 win over Democrat Hillary Clinton, which came by a 304-227 count.

Moody’s based its projections on how consumers feel about their own financial situation, the gains the stock market has achieved during Trump’s tenure and the prospects for unemployment, which has fallen to a 50-year low. Should those variables hold up, the president looks set to get another four-year term.

The modeling has been highly accurate going back to the 1980 election, missing only once.

That one time that their model was wrong? Of course, it was the 2016 election where Donald Trump beat the wife of Bill Clinton.

The lowest electoral number Trump gets in these models is 289 which is above the 270 votes needed to win. The highest he gets is 352 which looks like a pipe dream to me.

This is all factored in on the economy doing well which under ANY OTHER President would be a safe, reliable gauge. However in the “Age of Trump” nothing is the same as it was prior to his election in Nov. of 2016 and you pretty much have to throw the rule book out and start rewriting it.

I live in the State of Michigan which Trump flipped to Republican for the first time since 1988. Team Bill’s wife did not take the threat serious that Michigan was up for grabs until the last 10 days of the election and they lost the state by 11.000 votes.

That is not going to happen again where the Democrats are asleep at the wheel.

So just based on the economy this should be a slam dunk for President Trump and he should win by a country mile.

We will see in less than 13 months if these predictions come true.

On Former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch

Obama appointee Yovanovitch is being feted by the legacy media lately, as well as praised by Deep Stater leakers like Fiona Hill (formerly on the NSC staff). Here’s one example:

Fiona Hill, a former top National Security Council expert on Russia, praised ousted U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch during testimony on Monday before the House Intelligence Committee. Fox News has learned that Hill, who is testifying before the committee as part of the House’s impeachment inquiry into President Trump, had high praise for Yovanovitch during the closed-door session. Yovanovitch, who herself testified before congressional lawmakers last Friday as part of the impeachment probe, was recalled from her ambassadorship in May by Trump.

Read the rest here. Here is the virulently anti-Trump Vanity Fair chiming in with the usual “unnamed sources”:

“Folks were surprised to see a colleague as professional and talented as Masha Yovanovitch asked to leave Ukraine early. But sometimes that happens,” a former high-ranking State Department official told me. “That sentiment became shock, horror, and outrage when the presidential phone call came out.” Pompeo, after all, is tasked with defending U.S. diplomatic interests around the world—a mission that theoretically includes defending his staff from political corruption.

“It is unconscionable that he would have been on the phone while one of his team was being trashed by the president of the United States,” said another former senior State official.“Not that I would have said that he should have interrupted the phone call, but there should have been something said somewhere along the way to support her and her integrity and everything else. He is a Trump quisling. What can I say?”

Read the rest of this political hit-job here. Is it any wonder that these quoted clowns are now “former” State Dept employees? And “former” likely means Obama hacks. These people forget that their jobs are to execute US foreign policy, not undermine it, and serve at the President’s pleasure.

Yovanovitch was nominated for the post of US ambassador to Ukraine in May 2016, not coincidentally right in the middle of the counter-intel investigation on the Trump campaign. She was fired by @POTUS almost three years later to the day. Inquiring minds wonder why. Despite the praise for her from Deep State sources, there is more to her story, including breaking news on what she was doing in Kyiv. First of all, a little pushback is in order courtesy of a trusted source quoted here:

  • I did some research on who this woman is. It appears her father was a Soviet and her mother a German communist. They immigrated to Canada (date unknown) and their daughter was born in Montreal in 1958. In 1961, they moved to Connecticut where she attended elite private schools. They spoke Russian at home. No indications of how her family earned their living. At 18 she became a US citizen and attended Princeton where she majored in Russian history and graduated in 1980. She then moved to Moscow and attended a Soviet language School, but there are no further indications of what she did from 1980-86. She joined the State Dept in 1986. She advanced rapidly.
  • In 2001, after 14 years in the State Department, she attended the National Defense University and received her MA. This is fairly normal, as the State Department sends Foreign Service Officers with 12-16 years of service to school with military officers with 20-24 years of commissioned service. The difference shows and is stark.
  • In 2008, after 22 years in the State Dept, she became the US Ambassador to Armenia (appointed in the final months of the Bush 43 Administration) and served until 2011 (Obama) at which time she became the ambassador to Kyrgyzstan for one year. Both times she appears to have been focused on human rights issues. That makes sense under President Obama’s and Secretary Clinton’s priorities.
  • In 2013, she became the Deputy Commandant of the Eisenhower School at the National Defense University for one year until 2014. From 2014-2016 she was the Dean of the State Department’s Language School.
  • In 2016, she was nominated as the US Ambassador to Ukraine late in the Obama Administration. Her focus was again on human rights and LGBTQ rights.
  • Well over a year ago, Texas Congressman Pete Sessions claimed to have received numerous complaints from fellow congressmen about her open anti-Trump views in the lead-up to the election and subsequently thereafter. She has made financial donations to Democrat candidates but not Republican ones. There are no indications that she is or ever has been married or has a family.
  • The US State Department is the epicenter and founding member of the Deep State. It has, for 80 years, tried to forge its own foreign policy regardless of the direction of the Executive Branch. Hence the need for political appointees to ambassadorships and special envoys. Often, US embassies become the representatives for foreign countries versus the US representatives to the applicable nation.
  • When President Obama ordered US embassies to fly the LGBTQ flag, not one failed to do so. But, when the Trump Administration made embassies request permission to fly it, many just flew it anyway. This is the merest tip of the iceberg. Defiance is their stock in trade.
  • Ambassador Yovanovitch spent her entire career interfering in the internal policies, elections and laws of foreign nations in her push for US human rights political correctness. To assume that a career foreign service officer would not have made negative comments overseas about a Trump victory over her former boss and role model (Clinton) would take a special kind of denial mechanism.

And this – among other things – is EXACTLY what she has denied:

Yovanovitch defended herself against what she called ‘unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives,’ including a rumor that she had handed Ukraine’s top prosecutor a list of people who were not to be charged with crimes. She also dismissed public allegations that she had ‘supposedly told the Embassy team to ignore the President’s orders “since he was going to be impeached”.’ She rejected the contention that she was running interference for Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, as Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has claimed in what he has cast as an effort to protect the Bidens and Hillary Clinton while undermining Trump.

Read the rest here. Note that we have to look to the foreign press for the aforementioned denials because those denials might make thoughtful people wonder as to the truth of the accusations, further undermining the Democrats’ bastardization of the real crimes committed in Ukraine. And speaking of crimes committed, it’s likely that Yovanovitch herself committed a few as well. Thankfully, Judicial Watch is on the job yet again:

Judicial Watch is investigating if prominent conservative figures, journalists and persons with ties to President Donald Trump were unlawfully monitored by the State Department in Ukraine at the request of ousted U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, an Obama appointee. Yovanovitch testified “in secret” to the House impeachment inquiry against Trump on Friday, October 11, 2019. Her “secret” testimony was leaked to the New York Times during the hearing.

Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources. Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch. Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department and will continue gathering facts from government sources.

Prior to being recalled as ambassador to Ukraine in the spring Yovanovitch reportedly created a list of individuals who were to be monitored via social media and other means. Ukraine embassy staff made the request to the Washington D.C. headquarters office of the department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs. After several days, Yovanovitch’s staff was informed that the request was illegal and the monitoring either ceased or was concealed via the State Department Global Engagement Center, which has looser restrictions on collecting information.

“This is not an obscure rule, everyone in public diplomacy or public affairs knows they can’t make lists and monitor U.S. citizens unless there is a major national security reason,” according to a senior State Department official. If the illicit operation occurred, it seems to indicate a clear political bias against the president and his supporters.

Read the rest here. That sure seems like Judicial Watch has credible information, doesn’t it? Both her denials to the contrary and also the Deep Staters and Democrats rallying around her in legacy media articles ring pretty hollow, don’t they? It looks like she was fired for cause after all! And if that’s not enough, Tom Fitton subsequently tweeted out a list of those targeted by Yovanovitch. The posse is getting closer!

Finally, there is this from the Wall Street Journal that explains the reasons for her firing, contrary to the denials of her and the Democrats:

President Trump ordered the removal of the ambassador to Ukraine after months of complaints from allies outside the administration, including his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, that she was undermining him abroad and obstructing efforts to persuade Kyiv to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, according to people familiar with the matter. State Department officials were told this spring that Ms. Yovanovitch’s removal was a priority for the president, a person familiar with the matter said. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo supported the move, an administration official said.

Read the rest here.

To summarize:

  • Yovanovitch – whose parents were Commies – became a career State Dept employee and eventually a US ambassador twice-over, ending up in Kyiv.
  • She was a loyal Democrat operative in service of Obama and the Clintons and looks to have been groomed exactly as a trusted agent to protect Democrat interests (corruption) in Ukraine. She was also unquestionably anti-Trump and acted accordingly.
  • She was fired for cause by @POTUS in May 2019 despite continued frantic attempts by Democrat-controlled media and various Deep Staters to spin that firing otherwise in order to limit their criminal exposure in Ukraine and “get Trump.”
  • She almost certainly requested the illegal monitoring of US citizens from her post in Kyiv in order to support covering up Democrat crimes in Ukraine.

Her story is a work-in-progress and likely won’t end the way the Democrats and their media allies think it will end. How did a woman born to two Communist parents end up as a career US foreign service officer? It is long past time for a reinstitution of loyalty oaths at Foggy Bottom and in every US embassy worldwide, as well as routine polygraphs and tough personnel interviews to ferret out the rats. Oh, and maybe a complete swap-out of US embassy personnel in Kyiv is in order, too!

The end.

You just know that when the Veep told the House committee people he would not cooperate he was really nice about it also.

Late Tuesday night, the Vice President of the United States, through counsel, informed the House committees that are scrounging around doing impeachment-like things that he would not play along.

According to Axios

The counsel for Vice President Mike Pence sent a letter to the chairmen of the House committees investigating President Trump and Ukraine on Tuesday informing them that he will not cooperate with a request for documents in their “self-proclaimed” impeachment inquiry.

This was fully expected, so no surprise.

However, the announcement that Nancy Pelosi blinked and will not hold an impeachment vote as of now means that the White House strategy of pressuring the House to hold a formal vote has worked. Pence and other White House officials will not face much pressure until the House holds a vote or they take this to the courts. The courts won’t take this up soon so this is looking like a suave move by the White House.

The Trump administration is still going to have its hands full dealing with other aspects of this Ukraine story but for now, the House vote on Impeachment is tabled and the Vice President of the United States can just hang out and do what V.P’s do.

Which I’m not sure of exactly.

Here is the letter sent on behalf of the Vice President…

Dear Chairmen:

The Office of the Vice President has received the Committees’ Letter to the Vice President, dated October 4, 2019, which requests a wide-ranging scope of documents, some of which are clearly not vice-presidential records, pursuant to a self-proclaimed “impeachment inquiry.” As noted in the October 8, 2019 letter from the White House Counsel to each of you and to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the purported “impeachment inquiry” has been designed and implemented in a manner that calls into question your commitment to fundamental fairness and due process rights.

The Office of the Vice President recognizes the oversight role of your respective committees in Congress. Please know that if the Committees wish to return to the regular order of legitimate legislative oversight requests, and the Committees have appropriate requests for information solely in the custody of the Office of the Vice President, we are prepared to work with you in a manner consistent with well-established bipartisan constitutional protections and a respect for the separation of powers. Until that time, the Office of the Vice President will continue to reserve all rights and privileges that may apply, including those protecting executive privileges, national security, attorney-client communications, deliberations, and communications among the President, the Vice President, and their advisors.

As detailed in the White House Counsel Letter, the House of Representatives has not authorized any “impeachment inquiry.” Specifically, the operative House rules do not delegate to any committee the authority to conduct an inquiry under the impeachment power of Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution. Instead of being accountable to the American people and casting a vote to authorize what all agree is a substantial constitutional step, you have instead attempted to avoid this fundamental requirement by invoking the Speaker’s announcement of an “official impeachment inquiry” at a press conference? Never before in history has the Speaker of the House attempted to launch an “impeachment inquiry” against a President without a majority of the House of Representatives voting to authorize a constitutionally acceptable process.

The Office of the Vice President encourages the Committees to forgo their request to the Office of the Vice President, or hold it in abeyance, pending your discussion with the White House Counsel’s Office concerning compliance with constitutionally mandated procedures. Similarly, the Office of the Vice President encourages the Committees to first seek information from primary sources that may be responsive to your broad requests.

Sincerely,
Matthew E. Morgan

Counsel to the Vice President

Trump Sings the Blues’…Praises (Blues Visit the White House – VIDEO)

A funny thing happened today: A professional sports team visited the White House…and no one made a big stink about it. None of the players made “bold” pronouncements on social media about their momentous decision not to participate in the time-honored tradition of championship teams putting in an appearance at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. And to my knowledge, no one of consequence protested their being there.

The St. Louis Blues — winners of the 2019 Stanley Cup and authors of the near-perfect hockey fairytale season — met with the President today in the Rose Garden. After the team made its way to the dais (accompanied by “Gloria,” of course) followed by Lord Stanley’s Cup…

President Trump made his entrance, accompanied by team owner Tom Stillman and team Captain, Alex Pietrangelo (or, per the announcer, “Perchanjello”). He started out off-script, riffing about Turkey/Syria, China, impeachment. But before too long, he got to the reason at hand. He recounted the Blues’ improbable journey from worst to first. Even shared the backstory of “Gloria” as the adopted victory song.

Throughout the ceremony, both the President and the team (players, coaches, and owners alike) appeared to be enjoying themselves. And, as a Blues fan, it was just plain fun to watch.

Missouri’s Congressional delegation was present and the President made sure to acknowledge them all, heaping generous praise on his “great friend,” Senator Roy Blunt and “our young, incredible Josh” (Senator Josh Hawley), who’s made news of his own today.

#ExposeCNN Part 2 (Full): CNN Leadership Picks Favorites Among 2020 Democratic Candidates, Least Fave is Tulsi Gabbard

Westlake Legal Group CNN-log-620x310 #ExposeCNN Part 2 (Full): CNN Leadership Picks Favorites Among 2020 Democratic Candidates, Least Fave is Tulsi Gabbard Whistleblower Cary Poarch tulsi gabbard President Trump Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism Joe Biden jeff zucker Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats CNN’s Media Coordinator Christian Sierra CNN Campaigns Andrew Yang Amy Klobuchar Allow Media Exception 2020

 

On Tuesday, Project Veritas released Part 2 of their #ExposeCNN series. Whistleblower Cary Poarch tells viewers that he was a registered Democrat when he began working at CNN. During the 2016 Democratic primaries, he said he had campaigned and voted for Bernie Sanders.

Poarch was able to record CNN President Jeff Zucker’s daily 9am meetings where he issued his daily guidance to CNN staff members.

At one of these meetings, Zucker asked CNN Vice President and Political Director David Chalian if he thought CNN was taking Andrew Yang seriously enough.

Chalian replied, “Yeah, I mean, I think we – I don’t know why we wouldn’t take him – you know, most of these candidates seriously. We should definitely be looking at why Andrew Yang is resonating…Do I think he’s a likely nominee? No, I don’t.”

In another, Zucker suggested that CNN do a segment on Democratic candidate Kamala Harris’ call for President Trump’s Twitter account to be suspended. He says, “It’s not going to happen [Kamala winning the nomination], but I think it’s a good segment in the show… Not going to happen, but it’s a good talking – it’s a good segment.”

Nick Neville, CNN Media Coordinator is asked why the network didn’t broadcast Biden’s entire rally. He answers, “They probably think it’s boring… people would change the channel.” He’s right about that.

In another clip, several employees are discussing the network’s treatment of several of the candidates.

CNN’s Media Coordinator Christian Sierra, who we heard from yesterday, said it was unfair to focus on only a few of the candidates. He is asked, “Who is CNN unfairer against right now on the debate?”

Sierra responds, “Um, I think probably Yang and Klobuchar. One of the lesser ones. Just cause they’re going to talk about Biden more than Warren and Sanders. They’re not going to mention others…They want to cover the people who are on the top. They don’t want to cover the bottom.”

Poarch asks, “So, who does he [Zucker] want to be president?”

Sierra answers, “Here’s the thing, I don’t know. I think he wants a Democrat but I don’t think he has any particular favorite. Well, ‘cause here’s the thing, he donated before to Kamala Harris when she was running for Senate in California. Um, but, I think he kind of likes Pete, but I can tell he also likes Biden and Warren.”

Poarch asked Sierra if Zucker likes Biden. Sierra tells him he thinks so.

Then, Evan Perez, Senior Justice Correspondent weighs in, “Now I’ll tell you this. Joe Biden has a problem. Because his son was trading on his name. It looks bad. It smells bad. It’s not illegal. Nothing is illegal about it…How do you go and say that Donald Trump is the problem? Get him out of here, and convict him, when your son is doing the same shit.” (I posted about this exchange here.)

As for some of the other candidates:

The whistleblower asks Sierra “Who does CNN like?”

He tells him, “I think they like Warren a lot.”

Sierra continues, “They don’t like Tulsi. They don’t like Tulsi Gabbard. Because she supports Assad and she’s not taking a conventional route when it comes to one policy, stuff like that.”

Poarch sums it up by saying, “I just want us to have a free and fair election. That’s what it’s all about. Like we get information presented to us. We can, we can pull the lever for whoever we want. Again, left, right center, whatever. That’s the American dream. That’s what it should be. I don’t need to have some ideology shoved down my throat. That’s twisted in a way.”

I don’t think there was anything especially surprising or egregious about Part 2 of #ExposeCNN. The network’s leadership and staffers are merely stating their opinions about the field of 2020 hopefuls. Why would they want to cover unpopular candidates who have little chance of winning the nomination as often as the more viable among them? CNN is a business and businesses work for profits.

Part 1, which I posted about on Monday (here) had more meaty exchanges. Staffers discussed Zucker’s hatred and his “personal vendetta” for President Trump. In one segment, a staffer is heard saying he couldn’t believe CNN hasn’t taken down Trump yet. In another, an employee describes the scene at CNN on the night of Trump’s 2016 victory as funeral-like.

Zucker is heard making an incredibly tone-deaf remark about Fox News. He said:

I think what’s going on in America now is really fundamentally the result of years of fake news, conspiracy nonsense from Fox News. The fake conspiracy nonsense that Fox has spread for years is now deeply embedded into American society and frankly, that is beyond destructive for America.

He is also recorded telling staffers that it’s time to turn on Lindsay Graham. “So, I wanna say on the Lindsay Graham front. I know that there’s a lot of people at CNN who are friendly with Lindsay Graham. Time to knock that off and call him out.”

So far, I would say Project Veritas is 1 – 1. Part 1 was fairly interesting, but Part 2 was a bit of a wet weekend.

We’ll see what Part 3 brings.

Stay tuned.

Mark Zuckerberg Is Meeting In Secret With Conservatives Discussing Free Speech

Well, what do you know?

Seems that CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has been sitting down in secret with conservative pundits, writers and even a congressperson as of late. Maybe he realizes that Elizabeth Warren and her merry bunch of zealots are worse than dealing with people he opposes politically.

According to Politico this has been going on for a short time…

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been hosting informal talks and small, off-the-record dinners with conservative journalists, commentators and at least one Republican lawmaker in recent months to discuss issues like free speech and discuss partnerships.

The dinners, which began in July, are part of Zuckerberg’s broader effort to cultivate friends on the right amid outrage by President Donald Trump and his allies over alleged “bias” against conservatives at Facebook and other major social media companies. “I’m under no illusions that he’s a conservative but I think he does care about some of our concerns,” said one person familiar with the gatherings, which multiple sources have confirmed.

Some of the people who have been rumored to have attended the meetings are Mary Katharine Ham, Ben Shapiro, Matt Continetti, Guy Benson, and Brent Bozell. Byron York confirmed he attended one of the dinners but refused to discuss what was talked about.

The article does say that this outreach was to try and ease some of the fears of those that might have some influence with the Trump administration in the hope to quiet some of the saber-rattling.

Trump is not your problem Mark.

Elizabeth Warren is on the warpath (PUN FULLY INTENDED) and she is coming for your monopoly buddy.

This is a classic example of liberals wanting to claim the higher ground while shutting down any discussion of any ground under the rules of feelings being hurt. Zuckerberg is part of this mindset no matter how many dinners he holds to try a charm offensive and act otherwise.

All you have to do is treat both sides equally.

In this case, what that means is to let the words fly. Don’t referee to any side and you will not have any issue. The notion that Facebook has been treating all sides fairly is ludicrous. Just go and google how many grievances people that are “right” leaning have been banned as opposed to “left” leaning. The complaints are numerous on the right. If you think the left doesn’t like to complain when they get axed I have a bridge to sell you in Chappaquiddick.

Hopefully, these meetings do show Mark that conservatives are not that scary and these concerns should be dealt with going from the top down.

Otherwise, you will have to deal with Elizabeth Warren and no one rational wants to do that.
