WaPo, Chris Matthews Make the Case for Pence to be Impeached and You Know What THAT Means

Westlake Legal Group Chris-Matthews-620x399 WaPo, Chris Matthews Make the Case for Pence to be Impeached and You Know What THAT Means Washington Post President Trump Nancy Pelosi Mike Pence kamala harris Impeachment of President Trump Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Congress Chris Matthews Chris Coons Campaigns Allow Media Exception Allapundit Abuse of Power 2020

 

Here’s a subject that no Democratic lawmakers will touch right now. The thinking is: Pence is implicated in Trump’s campaign to pressure Ukraine to reopen their investigation into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden. Although Pence never mentioned Biden’s name to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, he was after all, involved in communicating the delay of the U.S. aid and at the request of President Trump, he skipped Zelensky’s inauguration. Shouldn’t Pence be impeached too? A rather low bar for impeachment to be sure, but that’s all they’ve got right now.

The media, on the other hand, has no such reservations. The last few days have seen a couple of Washington Post articles arguing for Pence’s impeachment, a story in the Associated Press and a handful of others.

In the video below, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews speaks to Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE). Matthews asks: “The Vice President now according to reporting as of tonight seems to have engaged in the same thing Trump was engaged in which is basically shaking down a foreign leader to get dirt on a political opponent, the candidate you’re supporting, Joe Biden. Shouldn’t he be the subject of an impeachment inquiry as well at this point?”

Coons, a bit taken aback, replies, “Well, at this point, look Chris, I think it’s important that we focus on the facts here. The facts are that we tie –”

Matthews, not hearing what he wants to hear, abruptly cuts him off and says, “I’m talking the facts. I realize [Trump has] got William Barr, the Attorney General in cahoots with him. He’s got Secretary of State, Pompeo, in cahoots with him. Now, he’s got the Vice President dragged into this cabal.”

The video then shows him speaking to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). “You know, if possible, if it comes to a Senate trial, and it may well by the end of this year where you’ll be a juror in that trial for removal of the President from office after he’s impeached, if that develops as the history of this year, you’re going to a Vice President of the United States who would take the presidency after having been involved personally in the cabal that we’d be impeaching the President for. How does that make sense historically? If Pence was part of this how could he survive as president when Trump goes?”

Kamala does not muster a tremendous amount of enthusiasm over the idea.

Last night, the Washington Post channeled Matthews and published a lengthy piece enumerating Pence’s interactions with Zelensky. It reads like a primer on the anatomy of a political smear. Here are some excerpts:

The president used Pence to tell Zelensky that U.S. aid was still being withheld while demanding more aggressive action on corruption, officials said. At that time — following Trump’s July 25 phone call with Zelenksy — the Ukrainians probably understood action on corruption to include the investigation of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Officials close to Pence insist that he was unaware of Trump’s efforts to press Zelensky for damaging information about Biden and his son, who had served on the board of an obscure Ukrainian gas company, when his father was overseeing U.S. policy on Ukraine.

Pence’s activities occurred amid several indications of the president’s hidden agenda. Among them were the abrupt removal of the U.S. ambassador to Kiev; the visible efforts by the president’s lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, to insert himself in the U.S.-Ukraine relationship; as well as alarms being raised inside the White House even before the emergence of an extraordinary whistleblower complaint about Trump’s conduct.

Perhaps most significantly, one of Pence’s top advisers [national security advisor Keith Kellogg] was on the July 25 call and the vice president should have had access to the transcript within hours, officials said.

The authors do at least acknowledge that Kellogg found nothing unusual about the call, nor did he “flag any concerns” to Pence.

Democrats will find a way to interpret anything involving Trump in the most negative way possible which is what they are doing here. The impeachment of both Trump and Pence would set the stage for a President Pelosi, a dream come true for war weary Democrats.

Why is this idea starting to gain traction among the left leaning press, yet no one in Congress appears to want to talk about it?

For one thing, the optics would be bad for them. Maybe they realize they’ve already grossly overstepped by basing their case for Trump’s impeachment on a routine phone call.

Hot Air’s Allapundit has a theory and it goes like this. President Trump, along with many Republicans, myself included, see the Democrats impeachment inquiry as another coup attempt. The thinking is, that if lawmakers call for Pence to be impeached along with Trump, it’s the same as saying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should be President.

Now that would truly seem like a coup. Actually, it would be a coup. In fact, it’s already a coup.

Why Do These People Like To Lose?

I’m only grabbing this tweet because it is a great example of a train of though running through NeverTrump and PoliteConservativeWestlake Legal Group 2122 Why Do These People Like To Lose? Ukraine republicans Politics Joe Biden hunter biden Front Page Stories elections donald trump democrats corruption Allow Media Exception   circles and not as a personal attack of any sort:

Indeed, why? Why, when you have your main opponent on the ropes why wouldn’t you let up? Isn’t the Christian thing to do pick him up, dust him off, hand him the used 2×4 and offer your own chin? If you think those are valid questions, then the problem, quite possibly, is that either you’re too nice to be involved in politics or you are simply a professional loser. NTTAWWT. We’ve had lots of professional losers run for office as Republicans. John McCain and Mitt Romney come to mind. These were all guys who’d mastered the art of losing to the Democrat in such a way that you’d still get invited on the Sunday shows as an honored guest and the New York Times would hold you up as an exemplar of loserliness.

There are actually a lot of reasons to continue hitting Joe Biden over his corruption.

  1. Donors will run from him, preventing him from having the resources to bull his way through the upcoming primaries.
  2. He will stay in the race longer than he would have ordinarily because he will refuse to bow out if it looks like Trump “beat him like a drum.”
  3. The attacks keep Trump’s base motivated…we aren’t PoliteConservativesWestlake Legal Group 2122 Why Do These People Like To Lose? Ukraine republicans Politics Joe Biden hunter biden Front Page Stories elections donald trump democrats corruption Allow Media Exception   and are not appalled by the sight of blood on the floor.
  4. The failure of Biden’s fellow Democrats to come to Biden’s aid will ensure divisions and hard feelings within the Democrat party during the election.
  5. If by some miracle, Biden limps through the primary and becomes the candidate you have immunized him from this line of attack in the general election because it will be greeted as old news.
  6. The people who claim to be on the right and who are offended by this will ultimately refuse to support Trump if they don’t actually endorse the Democrat so there is no downside.

This is like a fight. You don’t stop fighting until the other guy can’t move or runs away. If you stop before that to inquire about the other guy’s health and well being, odds are you are going to get your butt kicked.

The only real reason for encouraging Trump to let up on the Biden clan is because you really aren’t serious about winning and perhaps because you don’t want anyone else to be serious about winning either.

Twitter Deletes Trump’s Viral “Look at This Photograph” Meme

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-2-620x348 Twitter Deletes Trump’s Viral “Look at This Photograph” Meme Ukraine twitter Social Media Politics Nickelback meme Media Joe Biden hunter biden Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats corruption Allow Media Exception

It was a hilarious moment when President Donald Trump, the leader of the free world, tweeted out a hilarious meme that proved former VP Joe Biden was lying about discussing business dealings overseas with his son, Hunter.

The meme featured a clip from the song “Photograph” by Nickelback, which became a meme a few years ago. This time, Trump’s team put a picture of the Bidens and a Ukrainian gas executive. Trump released the meme on Twitter and it swiftly went viral.

However, it would appear that Twitter has deleted the video in response to a complaint by the “copyright holder.”

While the video was taken down on Twitter, a copy of it still exists on YouTube.

Who made the complaint is currently unclear, though the owner of the song is Warner Media Group, so it was likely them who made Twitter take the video down. The problem is that the clip was used in a meme and transformed so as to be used as a parody. There was also no attempt to make money off it, so the clip is, or at least should be fair use.

If I was Trump’s team, I’d fight the claim.

According to KPIX-TV, Biden had seen the meme and made a response, telling reporters that he’s not going anywhere and that he’s not going to destroy him or his family.

It’s a bit odd hearing Biden say that, seeing as how he and the Democrats are currently trying to destroy Trump with constant claims of wrongdoing that they never find. Their impeachment efforts really boil down to the fact that they just don’t like him.

When it comes to this Ukraine business, it would appear that the Biden family really is in the muck for doing something more than shady, and the fact that the media is doing whatever it can to distract from that and focus on Trump is more indicative of corruption on multiple levels than anything else.

Trump: Dems Impeachment Efforts Hurting Stock Market, Retirement Plans of Americans

Democrats are all in trying to get President Donald Trump out of office. No matter the reason, no matter for what. They just keep throwing things against the wall and hoping something sticks.

Their latest effort, the CIA officer complaint about the Trump-Ukraine phone call, just imploded big time today when it was revealed that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) had been in contact with the officer prior to him filing his complaint. Previously, Schiff had said there was no direct contact with the officer. He pretended he had not been contacted and had no knowledge of the complaint. This despite the fact that the whistleblower had actually contacted Schiff’s staffer and the whistleblower wrote Schiff a letter about the complaint.

But with Democratic Party, it’s seems it’s all about getting control back. They don’t seem to care who they hurt in the process.

Who they’re hurting is not just President Donald Trump. They’re also hurting the country and all Americans with this relentless vendetta.

The president pointed the finger and scolded Democrats today for their efforts.

From Fox News:

The Dow Jones Industrial Average at one point tumbled more than 500 points after fears of a recession grew as U.S. economic data disappointed. Signs of a slowdown in the American jobs market flashed Wednesday after payroll processing firm ADP reported the private sector added 135,000 jobs in August, less than the estimate of 140,000. Meanwhile, the ISM September Manufacturing Index fell to its weakest reading since June 2009.

If they don’t get the impeachment they desire, they figure they can spread just enough lack of confidence to tank Trump in the elections.

Their insanity over the Ukraine call with Volodymyr Zelensky will injure our relations with other countries. What foreign leaders are going to talk to Trump in confidence if they know Democrats are likely to leak or subpoena the call? No one will feel they can speak in confidence again. That will harm American interests.

Democrats already injured the American public by pushing the Russia collusion hoax, causing damage that may be beyond repair. A large number of Democrats still think that Russians somehow changed the votes of the 2016 election and believe that Trump is somehow a Russian agent. This despite the votes being changed has been repeatedly debunked and despite the Mueller investigation finding no collusion with the Trump team.

But because their far-left platform is so bereft of merit for most Americans, their only option is to try to scream “Orange Man Bad.”

Donald Trump, Impeachment, and John Boyd’s OODA Loop

Westlake Legal Group ap-air-strike-620x413 Donald Trump, Impeachment, and John Boyd’s OODA Loop republicans Politics john boyd impeachment Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Brad Parscale Allow Media Exception 2020 presidential campaign

Anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria into Israeli-controlled territory early on Friday, following a series of Israeli airstrikes inside Syria, the Israeli military said. The military said its warplanes struck several targets in Syria and were back in Israeli-controlled airspace when several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria toward the Israeli jets.

The late USAF Colonel John Boyd was a controversial figure in the Air Force. People loved him or hated him. No body heard his name and shrugged and said “meh, whatever.” He revolutionized the way that the Air Force looked a aerial warfare but his major contribution outside the very narrow milieu of fighter aircraft operations is what is known as the OODA Loop. OODA, short for observation, orientation, decision and action. This is basically what he means. You have to collect data by some sensory means (observation). Then you have to convert that data that is something meaningful in the context of what is happening. With that analysis/synthesis complete, you have to determine a course of action that you can carry out. And you have to act. Most organizations are pretty good at the first O. The second O may or may not happen because of personalities or biases. The D may never happen. Your chances of the A taking place are much less than being hit by lightning. The larger and more complex the organization is, the more likely it is to get bogged down while the people in charge of the second O demand more of the people doing the first O. This is what my wife the mechanical engineer calls “analysis paralysis.” The main idea is that the person or organization that can work its way through the OODA loop fastest can create a situation where your opponent is reacting to what you already did while you are able to anticipate your opponent’s future courses of action because you are limiting them by your current actions.

Right now, the Democrats are trying to screw up enough courage to undertake an impeachment hearing for President Trump. I say trying because there are a lot of egos involved and the 2020 election looms large. They are concerned about what their rabid frothing base does if they don’t impeach. They are concerned about what sane voters do if they insist on impeachment. Right now they are in sensory overload on the first O of the process. Not so with the Trump White House.

Donald Trump’s campaign aides expected months ago that Democrats would try to impeach the president — and he needed a way to exploit it.

So this summer, Trump 2020 officials spliced news clips of Democrats discussing impeachment into a 90-second video montage, punctuated by the president imploring supporters to help him “stop this nonsense.” Aides quietly filed the spot away until last week, when it was released as part of an online counteroffensive to the impeachment push that brought in 50,000-plus new donors and raked in $8.5 million in two days — the campaign’s biggest digital haul since its June launch.

The push demonstrates how Trump, in less than three years in office, has perfected a grievance machine that converts deep-seated outrage on the right into fundraising dollars and new support. As Trump confronts the gravest threat to his presidency yet, his campaign is stoking — and monetizing — the anger of a Republican base that has long seen the president as under siege.

With the White House choosing to forgo an impeachment-focused war room, much of the messaging is being outsourced to the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee. The two organizations, working closely with one another, have sent out dozens of statements, tweets, and video clips designed to cast the president as the prey of a Democratic Party out to destroy him. On Monday, the RNC unveiled a rapid response program focused on impeachment.

Not the key points. In a very short period of time they have analyzed the situation, decided that the best way of keeping unity in Congress is by firing up the Republican base rather than sucking , and they are working like maniacs to do that…and raising money in the process.

Compare and contrast:

Democrats have generally been more reluctant to fundraise off impeachment, though several Democratic candidates have sent out appeals tied to the investigation. Spokespersons for the Democratic National Committee and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said they’d taken steps to raise money from their supporters but declined to provide specifics on how much they’d taken in.

Some Democrats express discomfort about the prospect of financially capitalizing off what they describe as a serious process.

“Democrats just aren’t as motivated and excited by the specter of removing the president as they are by soundly defeating him next year. And there’s a conscious effort to avoid overly politicizing a legal process,” said Daniel Scarvalone, a veteran Democratic digital strategist. “I wouldn’t be shocked if Democrats continued to tiptoe around the issue, because there just isn’t as much upside for it as there is for Republicans.”

This, of course, is bullsh**. The reason they are reluctant to capitalize on it is because they know their House majority is dependent upon a small number of Democrats who flipped GOP seats in Red and Purple districts and they don’t want to make those folks run on impeachment. They also know that about half the country opposes impeachment. And there is some truth in the fact that joyfully celebrating impeachment makes it look exactly like the shabby, scrofulous partisan act that it is rather than some high-minded defense of the Republic.

But that is only part of the story. The real story here is the way the Trump campaign can move from concept to action.

Brad Parscale had just boarded a Jet Blue flight earlier this month when the paper straw he was using ripped in half.

As he tried to keep his iced tea from spilling onto his suit, the annoyed Trump campaign manager tweeted that he was “so over paper straws.” Prodded by his wife not to leave it at that, Parscale emailed his staff from the air with an idea: Let’s sell plastic Trump straws.

In short order, the campaign sent an email to supporters with the subject line, “Making straws great again.” By the time Parscale landed in Florida, the presidential straws were already in production and an advertising campaign was up and running. The first batch sold out within hours.

No meetings. No focus groups. No consultations with enviro-whackos about what Greenpeace will think of this. Just see the opening and act.

Trump may be impeached by the House but he will not be convicted by the Senate. This certainty gives them options that the Democrats do not enjoy.

Unlike the 2016 campaign when Trump had to rely upon a wide variety of grifters to run his campaign–some foisted off on him by the GOPe and some who’d clung to him like lint to Velcro for sometime…he goes into 2020 surrounded by people he trusts and who’ve had their baptism of fire, who’ve spent their time in the pressure cooker. They are loyal and you don’t find the self-serving leaks coming out of Parscale’s operation that bedeviled Trump in 2016. In short, they have the ability to work inside OODA loop of the Democrats, to capitalize on blunders and to do damage control.

If Trump wins in 2020, the real story will be how his campaign was able to act with great decisiveness to good and bad news and turn it into votes and money.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., winks as she jokes with other senators on the Senate Banking Committee ahead of a hearing on the nomination of Marvin Goodfriend to be a member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

Democratic primary candidate for the 2020 presidential election and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is going to raise your taxes if she gets into office.

We know this because she’s doing everything in her power to not answer the very simple and direct question as to whether or not she is. What she wants to do instead is give you flowery talk about how “Medicare for all” is going to bring your overall medical costs down, but doesn’t want to talk about the messy business of how she plans to pay for it.

Which is, of course, raising taxes on the middle class.

The Washington Free Beacon put together a pretty nice little supercut of all the times Warren was asked point-blank if she’ll raise taxes on the middle class and you can watch her play a game of dodgeball with the question. Even people like “Hardball” host Chris Matthews seems to get frustrated with Warren’s refusal to address the question directly.

One thing that Warren has firmly established is that a White House with her in the Oval Office is going to cost you a lot of money. Not only is she going to raise taxes to pay for all the “free” stuff she plans on giving away, but she’s also going to come down hard on the businesses as well in order to make those dastardly job providers cough up their “fair share.”

So much so that even big Democrat donors are threatening the DNC that they’ll walk away and sign on with President Donald Trump for his 2020 campaign in the general election if she wins the Democratic primary.

(READ: Big Democrat Donors Threaten To Switch To Trump If Elizabeth Warren Wins The 2020 Nomination)

While Warren has momentum within the gaggle of primary candidates, it’s unlikely that she’s going to win a general election against Trump who continuously receives support in the form huge cash donations, packed rallies, and rising poll numbers.

Warren can’t even keep dyed in the wool Democrat donors.

Pelosi Quotes Scripture While Continuing To Advocate For The Mass Murder Of Innocent Children

Today, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi held a news conference. It was a wide ranging propaganda effort aimed at supporting her party’s ongoing refusal to acknowledge their electoral defeat in 2016. Initially, Pelosi focused on legislative efforts, under the guise of “helping the American people.” Once she blew through a few phrases on infrastructure needs and prescription drugs (obviously designed to appear as though the Democrat caucus is interested in other things besides “impeachment,”) she then segued to the real point of her tirade. This of course, was the Democrat Party’s continuing effort to overturn the results of a Presidential election, cleverly misnamed, “Congress’s Constitutional Duty.”

Her comments (along with those of her henchman, Adam Schiff) regarding Presidential actions during a phone call with the President of Ukraine, were false on their face. But that’s not the major issue here; we expect Democrats to boldly lie to get their way. My beef with today’s latest Democrat shot at the President, is that it is one of the most abject case of depraved, immoral hypocrisy I’ve ever seen.

As Speaker Pelosi segued into her impeachment pitch, she tried to establish a moral foundation for it by quoting our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ saying, “For what profits a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul.” She followed that up throughout her opening comments and answers to reporter questions with, “We will consider this prayerfully,” or words to that effect—at least 7 times by my count. How dare she. How. Dare. She.

Speaker Pelosi, who constantly claims to be for the common man, has constantly and consistently advocated for the murder of innocent children in the womb. Lately that support has extended to the murder of children who manage to survive the abortion process and now lay gasping for breath on a cold, stainless steel butcher’s table. And now she quotes scripture and claims that she is considering her actions prayerfully?!

I don’t have the ability to come up with the prose that adequately describes the evil that this prayerfully, professed Catholic woman represents, so with apologies to Winston Churchill…

This wicked woman, Pelosi the repository and embodiment of many forms of soul-destroying hatred. This monstrous product of former wrongs and shame.

I can only hope that the current titular Vicar of Christ on Earth, Pope Francis, can tear his attention away from the non-existent problem of climate change and instead, focus his energy on the 56 MILLION babies butchered Worldwide each year, 630,000 in the United States—their murders actively supported by Nancy Pelosi. Perhaps the Pope should excommunicate her—just as a good start.

The 4th Democratic Debate Is Two Weeks Away but Harris and Gabbard Campaigns Already Going at It

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, speaks during the second of two Democratic presidential primary debates hosted by CNN Wednesday, July 31, 2019, in the Fox Theatre in Detroit. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

After Sen. Kamala Harris acted stupidly this week with her formal letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey demanding President Trump be suspended from the social media platform, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard was asked about the move. The Hawaii Congresswoman pushed back with a strong answer about how trying to silence people over political disagreements is wrong.

The Hill reports:

When Gabbard was asked by a reporter her thoughts on Harris’s attempts to have Trump removed from Twitter, the Hawaii representative said she did not agree with the idea.

She added that “freedom of speech is something that is an important, foundational, right in our democracy.”

“We can’t just cancel or shut down or silence those who we disagree with or who hold different views or who say things that even that we strongly disagree with or abhor,” she told NBC.

Watch Gabbard speak on this issue below:

Harris campaign spokesman Ian Sams responded to Gabbard’s remarks by stating that Gabbard got her talking points from Fox News:

It was a ridiculous answer considering this issue is not about Fox News but whether or not “cancel culture” should apply to your political opponents simply because you disagree with them, as NRSC senior adviser Matt Whitlock pointed out in a tweet blasting Sams:

That said, we shouldn’t be too surprised by Sams’ nonsensical response considering the sad state the Harris campaign has been in for quite some time now.

Sams’ tweet came several hours after Gabbard’s spokesman Cullen Tiernan took a jab at the Harris campaign over reports it is being restructured in an attempt to become competitive again:

The debate that is scheduled to take place in two weeks will be on one night only, meaning all candidates will be on the same stage. Gabbard famously torched Harris in the 2nd debate in July. I’m looking forward to Round 2 between these two.

And to be honest, I’m kinda sorta hoping for a similar outcome.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is running, has endorsed Ocasio-Cortez’s new “Just Society” plan, calling it “just the type of bold, comprehensive thinking we’ll need” to make “big, structural change.”

Sounds a bit like “fundamental transformation,” doesn’t it? “Big, structural change” seems to be Warren’s tag line. She says it about everything, while behind the scenes reportedly getting the aid of failed candidate, Hillary Clinton, the establishment candidate of 2016, perhaps the furthest thing from ‘big structural change” that one might find.

But let’s check out this plan that Warren is embracing. Because yes, it would be “big, structural change.”

Just not the kind Americans would want.

What are they calling for in this “Just Society” plan? A festival of socialism.

Here’s AOC introducing the plan, in her best imitation of FDR’s “Fireside Chat” pose to appear presidential, even with an old-fashioned mic.

The idea behind the bills is that they’re supposed to “eradicate poverty.” But have you ever noticed that, historically, the Democrats’ ideas for eradicating poverty tend to put as many people as possible on the government dole?

Plus, poverty is at historic lows, including in New York City, where Ocasio-Cortez’s home district is. In fact, poverty is so low under President Donald Trump, AOC has to actually jack the numbers by changing the poverty line, making the poverty line $38,000/year without even considering benefits. That’s the benefit of Trump’s supercharging the economy and letting capitalism operate more.

Among other things, the “Just Society” plan calls for nationwide rent control as well as making sure welfare is available for illegal aliens and ex-convicts.

As Brad Polumbo at the Washington Examiner explains:

Price controls just restrict the supply of housing, because they discourage developers from building more housing by lowering potential profits. This, in the long-run, will send rents soaring in non-rent-controlled areas. Meanwhile, property owners who do face rent restrictions may convert their apartments to condos or otherwise stop renting them, rather than rent out their property at artificially low prices.

And what does number six mean?

In classic Green New Deal style, though, the most radical part of the Just Society package is the resolution it includes. Ocasio-Cortez’s plan would have the United States sign on to an international accord that states all people “have the right to work, fair and just conditions of work, social security, an adequate standard of living, including adequate food, clothing, housing, and healthcare.”

While that might sound nice in the abstract, it’s a vision of positive rights — the right to something rather than freedom from — that inevitably involves massive amounts of socialism.

How are we going to pay for the festival of socialism? They don’t say. How are you doing to deal with the unintended consequences of this, such as the greater housing shortage that this would cause and the greater number of illegal aliens coming in to get welfare that you’re guaranteeing them? They don’t say but you know it means you’ll be paying for it.

It’s a recipe for government takeover, killing the economy and making more Americans poor and dependent.

Joe Biden has been suffering a lot of hits in media and justifiably so. But his difficulty has allowed Warren to slowly creep up in the polls.

Embracing this crazy idea may make Warren more palatable to the far left.

But it’s a killer come the general election, if she was to get the nomination.

Republicans need to keep talking and revealing how radical and destructive to Americans this and Warren are.

Last week, The Hill’s John Solomon reported he had obtained 450 pages of new documents related to former Vice President Joe Biden’s Ukraine story and Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Solomon is a long-time investigative journalist with an extensive network of connections inside the Washington intelligence community. Clearly, it will take time to pour through such a vast quantity of material. Accordingly, Solomon will be presenting several documents at a time. Last night, he appeared on “Hannity” to share the first two, both of which discredit the false narratives being peddled by the left. Solomon reports:

There is a media narrative that is false…MSNBC’s Katy Tur and many others over the weekend said there is no evidence that the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington was ever asked to help the Democratic National Committee. In fact, on NBC News, Katy Tur called that claim Russian propaganda. Now, you showed the Politico article.

I have a statement from the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, on the record, from their sitting ambassador in Washington, that in fact, Alexandra Chalupa, the DNC contractor, came to the Ukrainian Embassy in spring 2016 and asked for help in finding dirt on Donald Trump in hopes of staging a Congressional hearing to hurt Donald Trump in the fall election of 2016. That is the Ukraine Embassy’s on the record statement.

In addition, they state that Miss Chalupa also asked for the Ukraine president to visit the United States and spend time with an investigative reporter trying to turn up dirt on Donald Trump and Paul Manafort.

What did the Embassy do? They said they recognized this request for what it was – an improper effort to influence the election and they refused to cooperate with Miss Chalupa. That’s a very important confirmation of something that the rest of the media is calling a tin foil hat conspiracy. It’s on the record. It’s in Politico. It’s in the Embassy’s own words.

The second document Solomon presents is the deposition of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. He is the prosecutor whom Biden demanded be fired in March 2016. Biden famously threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid to the country unless Shokin was fired in the next six hours. Shokin had been investigating Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, at the time and was planning to interview Hunter Biden about his business dealings with the company as part of his probe. For obvious reasons, Biden insists he called for Shokin’s firing because he was corrupt. Solomon explains:

Mr. Shokin says in his sworn deposition, under the penalty of perjury, under oath, that in fact, he was fired because he refused to stand down in the Burisma investigation. That is the only reason he was fired. He was told that by Ukraine’s President [Petro Poroshenko].

That is a complete contradiction of everything Joe Biden has said.

Solomon will appear again on “Hannity” tonight to “go through 8-10 of the biggest lies and show people the proof moment by moment, step by step.” I will post on this new information tomorrow morning.

Note: The Politico article Solomon refers to is an in-depth, investigative piece written by Kenneth Vogel and David Stern in January 2017. It is a well-researched overview of Ukraine’s interference in our election. It covers the role of Alexandra Chalupa whose name you will likely hear frequently as this story unfolds. It is entitled, “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire.” Here is the link.
