There are a lot of seemingly random events happening lately. Are they truly random, or might there be nefarious purposes behind at least a few of them? Let’s take a look. Here’s a list of some “breaking news” items over the past week or so; are they all they seem to be on the surface, or is the reality being purposely obfuscated?

  • The Left via a NY Times hit piece are going after USSC Brett Kavanaugh yet again.
  • The Israelis were accused of planting spying devices around the White House.
  • The legacy media claimed that the CIA had to pull a spy from Russia because @POTUS was a security risk.
  • A Saudi ARAMCO facility was attacked using Iranian-produced weapons, possibly by Iranian proxies or by Iran itself.
  • The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) arrested a senior intelligence officer for allegedly stealing sensitive documents. Nearly concurrently, Justin Trudeau was exposed in more ways than one – multiple instances of (to use the Left’s jargon) “cultural appropriation.”
  • Andrew McCabe stated during a CNN interview that he would refuse to take a plea deal under any circumstances if indicted.
  • Big Democrat donor Ed Buck was arrested for distributing methamphetamines resulting in death.
  • An intelligence community whistleblower complaint was publicized by the WaPo that questioned a supposed promise made by @POTUS to a foreign leader.

Let’s examine each one and see it we can connect a few dots. First off, the Kavanaugh smear. This was a perfect example of the Leftist Hive in operation: a media hit-piece echoed everywhere, Democrat Star Wars bar scene candidates and others in Congress and the media demand his impeachment, etc. A false NY Times report was derived from a book, and the guy behind it all was on Bill Clinton’s defense team during impeachment proceedings while Kavanaugh was working for Special Counsel Ken Starr. Those are just coincidences, right? The Democrats want us to believe that!

The accusations in the NYT article were immediately debunked (the “accuser” refused to come forward and be deposed by the FBI). And this article seals the deal.

Then there is this report that one of those bearing false witness during the Kavanaugh hearings last year was coerced to do so by the Democrat cabal led by Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA). This whole article is VERY interesting and is highly recommended!

Why did this story break now and not during the Senate hearings? What’s the Democrats’ game plan? This is all about them de-legitimizing the US Supreme Court because there are a number of very important cases that will be decided in the next session, and the Left fear the results from a conservative-leaning court. Their 3+ decades of practicing lawfare through the federal courts is crashing down, as POTUS is appointing conservative federal district and circuit court judges at a rapid clip to replace leftists who have usurped their authority and legislated from the bench for years.

In past years, confirmed USSC judges were left alone after being confirmed, but the Left have upped the ante by going after Kavanaugh again! They’ve got nothing – no witnesses, no evidence – only false accusations and innuendos. This is all about de-legitimizing Kavanaugh and thereby the court itself, which will allow the Left to claim that any USSC decisions that go against their politics are “tainted” and to be ignored. This is pretty much analogous to how Democrat-run California ignores federal immigration laws now.

I’ve got news for Democrats and their media lick-spittle: more false accusations aren’t going to move the needle in the direction you want it to move. In fact, it will do the reverse as more and more reasonable people see it as just another high-tech lynching (ode to Clarence Thomas).

Moving on to purported Israeli spying on the White House et al. Here’s one of the stories that broke that news. Note this phrase in the very first sentence of that article: “according to three former senior U.S. officials with knowledge of the matter.” I mean, really! How many times are we supposed to fall for that gambit (unnamed sources)? If we’ve learned anything in the Age of Trump it’s that, unless the sources are named, the articles in the legacy/left media are purposely anti-Trump and bogus. The list of #FakeNews stories is long! Those “unnamed sources” could easily be former Obama Administration people. Or, they could have been NeverTrumpers who’ve been fired or resigned and have grudges. Regardless, I simply don’t believe ANY anti-Trump legacy media story that doesn’t name its sources. Period!

Secondly, the timing of this article is entirely suspect, as it was released right before an important Israeli election. We know that Obama’s crew tried to unseat Netanyahu previously by working with his opponents, as noted here. This latest action smells like more of the same. The Obama crowd views Netanyahu as a major roadblock to restoring the failed JCPOA deal with Iran, and they’d like nothing more than to remove him from power. This was very likely the real purpose for that article!

The next “bombshell” was an accusation –reported by a former Obama administration hack, no less, and much-repeated throughout the legacy media – that the CIA extracted a Russian spy due to “wide concern in the intelligence community about mishandling of intelligence by Trump and his administration.” Yeah, right. Here’s the typical anti-Trump spin by a guy who’s been sliming @POTUS since early 2016.

Well, not so fast! Virtually as soon as the CNN report was published, even the NY Times reported that the spy was recalled even before President Trump took office. Furthermore, the CIA issued this extraordinary statement slamming the CNN report:

The Central Intelligence Agency on Monday evening slammed what it called CNN’s ‘misguided’ and ‘simply false’ reporting, after the cable channel’s chief national security correspondent authored a hole-filled piece claiming that the CIA “had pulled a high-level spy out of Russia because President Trump had ‘repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.’”

Read the rest here.

It was a false report, and yet that former Russian spy was virtually doxed by the legacy media, with his private address publicized for all the world to see. Hmmm. Maybe there’s more to this than meets the eye. This guy was supposedly “close to Putin,” yet he provided no information about Putin’s foreign policy objectives in Syria or with respect to Iran but supposedly confirmed that Putin directed the meddling in the 2016 election? Riiiiiight.  More likely, this was yet another false-flag misdirection to take the heat off Andrew McCabe, whose lawyer’s attempts to get the DoJ to not prosecute him for various crimes was turned down at about the same time this spy story popped up. It was also doubtless intended to keep the “muh Russia” hoax alive in support of Nadler’s “impeachment inquiry” (or whatever the Democrat/media euphemism for their continuing witch hunt is called these days).

Next was the drone and missile strike on two of Saudi Arabia’s ARAMCO facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais. This was a coordinated attack by 25 drones and missiles that put half of Saudi Arabia’s oil production capacity out of business until repaired. Refer to this for more.

The Iranians of course claimed innocence, but the weapons were Iranian-built, and the level of sophistication in the attack, as well as intelligence gathered subsequently from multiple sources, pointed squarely to Iran.

This attack was part of a continuing attempt by Iran to start a kinetic war because the sanctions are drastically affecting the IRI’s ability to pay salaries of the IRGC, internal security forces, and proxy terrorist groups around the region. They’re trying to split off European support for those sanctions, and a war would help do the trick. Given that the EU and even the Chinese are the ones dependent on Middle East oil (the US is a net exporter thanks to @POTUS!), that strategy won’t work. And we know that there are former Obama regime people like John Kerry and Ben Rhodes providing advice on strategy to the Iranians, too. There are a lot behind-the-scenes Logan Act violations that have happened over the past few months.

POTUS hasn’t taken the bait; there are numerous reports of devastating non-kinetic attacks on the Iranian oil industry, as well as another ratcheting up of sanctions on Iranian financial transactions.

How about that senior RCMP intelligence official being arrested for selling secrets? And then, suddenly, Prime Minister Trudeau made “’cultural appropriation” headlines? Are the two stories linked in some way? Here’s a Canadian Global News excerpt that broke the spy story:

Cameron Ortis faces seven counts dating as far back as 2015, including breach of trust, communicating “special operational information,” and obtaining information in order to pass it to a “foreign entity.” Ortis was identified when U.S. authorities “flipped” a suspect who gave him up. His arrest is believed to be part of a wider operation involving NATO allies and the Five Eyes — Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the U.S. and U.K.

Read more about it here.

There are lots of possibilities here. Ortis could have been spying for China (he speaks Mandarin) or Russia or multiple parties. Remember that FVEY spies were almost certainly part of the foreign element of #Spygate that is slowly being unraveled, too.

Nearly concurrently, we learned that Justin Trudeau wore black/brown-face several times “in his youth.” Now why would these two stories break just now when certainly the Trudeau story had to have been previously known? The Canadian election is right around the corner on 21 October. Could these stories be aimed at taking out Trudeau? Could the arrest be the Canadian intel services fighting back against their own corrupt Deep State actors in a manner similar to the exposure of #Spygate?

Some have even speculated that these two stories are part of the ephemeral anti-globalist coalition led by @POTUS pushing back on globalist actors in Canada and elsewhere. That speculation isn’t too far-fetched, especially now that the DoJ OIG’s FISA abuse report is in final review.

Next were the unsurprising statements made by Andrew McCabe during a CNN interview that he would “under no circumstances” take a plea deal with the DoJ. Yes, yes, the crook insists on maintaining his innocence until the bitter end. Gotta keep the GoFundMe $$ coming in! There’s an embedded video of the interview in this article, which describes the matter fairly well; the man is lying through his teeth.

He’s already been referred for prosecution by the DoJ OIG in the Clinton email scandal (that was what his lawyers were begging the DoJ to not indict him for), and the much more serious offenses – and a likely referral – will be forthcoming resulting from the FISA abuse report. He, the rest of the cabal, and their media allies are working overtime to keep the “muh Russia” hoax alive in support of Democrat attempts to “impeach” the president. Sorry, Andy; we’re onto your game BIGLY! Can’t wait for the referral from the OIG on FISA abuse!

Then there was the arrest (finally!) of big Democrat donor Ed Buck in LA on a charge of “distributing methamphetamines resulting in death.” Here’s the criminal complaint filed in California.

It’s SHAMEFUL, if not a complete cover-up, as this is at least the third time around for this guy (two men previously OD-d, and the third one survived to report the incident leading to Buck’s arrest).

Questions abound; here are some of them. Why wasn’t he charged previously after either or both of the two deaths? To which California Democrats (and others) did he donate money? How well does Adam Schiff know him, and how much did he receive from Buck? He donated a lot to the Obamas and Hillary Clinton; what do they say about Buck now, and will they return the contributions? This story is nowhere close to being over.

Finally, there is the evolving story about a supposed “whistleblower” from the intel community who claimed that @POTUS made a “very disturbing promise” to a foreign leader during a phone call. Except that we have subsequently found out WAAAAAY more about the story. We have learned that the whistleblower did not have first-hand access to the transcript of the phone call, nor did he/she have any of the context for that call. Part of that context included an above-board series of contacts between Ukraine and Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani THAT WAS INSTIGATED BY THE US STATE DEPT! Now check this next part out carefully from a recent article:

According to interviews with more than a dozen Ukrainian and U.S. officials, Ukraine’s government under recently departed President Petro Poroshenko and, now, Zelensky has been trying since summer 2018 to hand over evidence about the conduct of Americans they believe might be involved in violations of U.S. law during the Obama years. The Ukrainians say their efforts to get their allegations to U.S. authorities were thwarted first by the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, which failed to issue timely visas allowing them to visit America.

Then the Ukrainians hired a former U.S. attorney – not Giuliani – to hand-deliver the evidence of wrongdoing to the U.S. attorney’s office in New York, but the federal prosecutors never responded. The U.S. attorney, a respected American, confirmed the Ukrainians’ story to me. The allegations that Ukrainian officials wanted to pass on involved both efforts by the Democratic National Committee to pressure Ukraine to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election as well as Joe Biden’s son’s effort to make money in Ukraine while the former vice president managed U.S.-Ukraine relations, the retired U.S. attorney told me.

Read the rest here.

Did you catch all of that? The Ukrainians have apparently got the goods on Obama, Biden, the DNC, and others but were prevented by Deep State operatives from turning that evidence over to the DoJ, and somehow a “whistleblower” accuses @POTUS of making an “improper promise” during a phone call? Talk about reality turned inside-out! Even former CIA analyst and now CNN contributor Phil Mudd crapped all over the whistleblower and Congress, as noted here.

What we’ve got here is REAL foreign collusion – by Democrats! – being covered up by Deep State operatives, including trying to shift the blame onto POTUS and away from the Bidens (and others) who have MUCH to answer for regarding Ukraine! And of course, the legacy media are spinning furiously to protect the Democrat front-runner, when it’s already on the public record that he bragged about blackmailing the Ukrainians to fire a prosecutor looking into Hunter Biden’s “business contacts” (actually, bribery or extortion) in the Ukraine!

I predict that Ukraine will be Joe Biden’s political Waterloo. There is more coming out on this story, and the legacy media won’t be able to spin it away. Get ready for Fauxcahontas to top the Democrats’ Star Wars bar scene leader board, folks!

That concludes some dot-connecting on a number of very interesting stories of late. What’s the common thread throughout? All are bad news for Democrats, and the attacks against the President in particular are boomeranging BIGLY! Shades of Trumpenfreude! Some people are getting desperate, and none of them are named Trump or Trump’s allies!  What do you think?

The end.

Poll Shows the Majority of Americans Still Don’t Want Trump Impeached

As it has been for some time, when it comes to the issue of impeaching President Donald Trump, the American people just aren’t on board.

According to The Hill, a new poll out of Quinnipiac University found that while approval for Trump’s impeachment has raised a whopping two points, the majority of Americans do not agree with the Democrats that it’s the way to go:

The new poll from Quinnipiac University, released Wednesday, finds only 37 percent of registered voters say Trump should be impeached and removed from office, with 57 percent of respondents saying he should not be impeached.

The poll was conducted from Sept. 19 to 23, as Trump was embroiled in a controversy stemming from a call he had with the Ukrainian president, and the results come just a day after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced that House Democrats were launching a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.

The findings closely mirror results from a Monmouth University poll conducted last month before the Ukraine phone call controversy. That survey found 59 percent of voters were against impeaching Trump, with 35 percent of respondents backing the move.

This low opinion of impeachment has been steady across the board. In July, a Rasmussen poll showed that only 11 percent of Americans believed Trump would face impeachment, which had trended down from 29 percent in December of 2017. Between that year and now, the media has attempted to throw everything and the kitchen sink at Trump in order to stir feelings of impeachment among the populace, but have had no luck. It consistently remained low.

As before, this move toward impeachment is actually a big showing of the Democrats hand. They continuously try to find ways to have Trump booted out of office before the election takes place, or at least mire him in controversy during the elections. This is because the Democrats have next to no faith in their chosen candidates, and if we’re all being honest, you can’t blame them.

But this recent poll should indeed worry the Democrats further. While the Democrat base is fully on board with impeachment proceedings, Republicans and Independents are against it in their majorities. This should signal that they aren’t going to attract anyone else, and may even serve to repulse potential voters further.

What’s more, Trump seems to be welcoming this battle. He’s already fundraising off of it and even had a video ready to go once the impeachment proceedings were announced.

Judging by the numbers, this is one of the worst moves the Democrats could have made.

It’s All a Game: Dems Have No Plans yet to Vote for Formal Impeachment Inquiry

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-9 It’s All a Game: Dems Have No Plans yet to Vote for Formal Impeachment Inquiry Uncategorized President Trump Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress Abuse of Power

There was a lot of hullabaloo on Tuesday about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing she had finally decided to move forward on an impeachment inquiry. Headlines blasted everywhere and some media even created their banners for “impeachment inquiry.”

But there’s still a bit of a problem, as the Republican ranking member, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) notes:

Are Pelosi and the Democrats planning on holding that vote to make it official? Not so much, as the House Rules Committee Chairman just revealed.

So what’s the point of all the theater? They are desperate to find something to hang on President Donald Trump. Nothing they have thrown at him so far has stuck. Joe Biden is lagging and they have a pretty dismal field of candidates. They are also desperate to appease their base who have been hot to impeach Trump since the moment he won office.

Why don’t they want to hold an official vote?

Among other reasons, they stand to lose a lot of critical seats in the House in states which Trump won, where voters are likely not to take kindly to Democrats trying to throw out the person they elected to office. As many as 31 folks may be at risk in those states.

Democrats don’t want to flag those representatives for voters to toss out and possibly lose the House.

Beyond that, a recent poll found that impeachment is supremely unpopular, not just among Republicans, but among critical independent voters and in those swing counties that they would also need to win in 2020.

Strangely enough, voters are not happy when Democrats spend their time and our money on frivolous efforts to throw out our duly elected leaders because Democrats are unhappy that their side lost.

Democrats may yet be forced into a formal vote.

But this ‘inquiry’ also shows every likelihood of boomeranging on the Democrats big time, exposing both their craven goals and possible Biden corruption. They’re literally walking into a buzzsaw without knowing what comes next, with Biden having already confessed on video to pressuring Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was looking into corruption at his son’s company.

When people see all that, they’re not going to look kindly upon Democrats come November 2020.

Video: Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden Sang Very Different Tunes on Impeachment in 1998

As we learn from the just-released transcript of the Trump/Zelenskiy July phone call that Democratic allegations of quid pro quo were a big nothingburger, now would be a good time to launch the wayback machine to see how Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden viewed impeachment proceedings when it was President Bill Clinton (D) on the hook.

Video from 1998 shows Pelosi, who recently stated about Trump that “no one is above the law”, talking about how the country would “suffer” because House Republicans were “paralyzed with hatred” for Clinton. “It’s about a punishment searching for a crime that doesn’t exist,” stated Rep. Pelosi at the time. Watch:

Joe Biden, who was a Senator in 1998, also spoke out against impeaching Clinton, insinuating his impeachment was more about politics than than principle:

[The president] is elected directly by the people of the United States of America. And the election of a president is the only nationwide vote the American people will ever cast and that’s a big deal. The American people don’t think that they have made a mistake by electing Bill Clinton and we in Congress had better be very careful before we upset their decision, and make darn sure that we are able convince them if we decide to upset their decision, that our decision to impeach him was based upon principle and not politics.

Watch:

In an interview with Fox News, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) explained that the rationale for impeaching Clinton was on much more solid footing than what Democrats have brought forth to date against Trump:

The hosts asked former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who led the impeachment proceedings against Clinton, about Pelosi’s remarks. Gingrich said, unlike the current impeachment push against Trump, Ken Starr’s report alleged crimes against Clinton, prompting the House to act.

“In the case of Clinton, he had actually broken the law. He had committed a felony in a case involving sexual predation against an employee. If that happened today, people would be going crazy. That’s not the case here,” said Gingrich, claiming Hunter Biden did a lot of “weird” business deals in Ukraine and China and Trump is within his rights to want that investigated.

As Cocaine Mitch noted earlier this week, impeachment is not a political tool Democrats should attempt to use in order to relitigate elections they’ve lost. Sadly, that’s exactly what they’ve done, both with the Mueller investigation and now this.

By the time Democrats are done crying for impeachment over “offenses” that are not impeachable, the word “impeach” will have lost all meaning – if it hasn’t been lost already.

Marble Halls & Silver Screens w/Sarah Lee Ep. 7: The ‘Impeachment, American Dreamer, and Hard Street Drugs’ Edition

Homelessness and open drug use are rampant in the Golden State.

Morning, gang. Recorded a good show last night that I hope tells you all you’d ever want to know about what’s going on with this “impeachment inquiry” the Democrats have come up with to make it look like they’re serious on impeachment. For the record, I’m not sure they are because they don’t seem to have anything impeachment-worthy, including these new allegations about Trump and Ukraine. If the transcript is released to Congress today, we should know more about the alleged inappropriateness of the phone call between the two world leaders. I have a feeling it’s not going to go the Democrats’ way…

I took the opportunity to review Jim Gaffigan’s newest film, the gritty and uncomfortable “American Dreamer” (trailer below). Ooof…it’s a tough watch, but probably an important one if you’ve ever been sitting at the bottom of your life, looking up, and wondering what you’re capable of to get yourself out of the hole. I get into all that in the show.

Finally, there’s a lot in last night’s show about Twitter user and English rapper Zuby’s visit to the United States. If you’re unfamiliar with the guy, he’s an English musician who also opines quite a bit on policy (usually American) from a very English libertarian perspective.

He’s been tweeting his thoughts on the cities he’s been visiting and let’s just say his questions about what exactly is going on in California (San Francisco specifically) have been eye opening. I try to answer some of his questions.

(AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

Has a story ever blown up this much in such a short period of time?

We are less than a week removed from accusations of Trump committing “treason” and panel discussions on him being executed. Things have turned in a massive way though. We found out there was no quid pro quo or threat of withholding aid in the call to Ukraine. While that originally was a marker laid down by House Democrats, they decided to move ahead with impeachment even in its absence.

Then, like he had planned it or something, Trump says “sure, I’ll release the transcript,” essentially calling their bluff. Was this all an elaborate trap? Or at the very least, did Trump take advantage of a situation that presented itself? It sure is starting to seem that way.

It’s getting worse for Democrats though. After Trump promised to release the transcript, the goalposts suddenly moved to needing the entire complaint even though it is likely nothing but third hand conjecture. What does Trump do? Instead of fighting them, he green-lights its release as well, signaling there’s nothing really there.

This feels like the Mueller report all over again, where Democrats and the media were sure it contained evidence of collusion. Then, unexpectedly, Trump didn’t end up claiming executive privilege over any of it. It turned out to be a total dud, made only worse by Mueller’s public testimony on the matter.

Now, a new report says that the Intel Inspector General who took the complaint found the whistle-blower had significant political bias in favor of a “rival candidate” of Trump. That will be included in his report.

“A senior Trump administration official told Fox News late Tuesday that the administration will release a document showing the intelligence community inspector general found the whistleblower who leveled an explosive accusation against President Trump concerning his talks with Ukraine had ‘political bias’ in favor of ‘a rival candidate’ of the president,” Fox News reported. “The official did not identify the name of the rival candidate. Separately, a senior administration official told Fox News the White House has been working as quickly as it can to release to Congress the whistleblower complaint involving President Trump’s conversations with the leader of Ukraine, as long as it’s legally possible.”

I’m not normally a believer in Trump being anything other than a bull in a china shop when it comes to his political moves, and in many ways, that’s served him well. But this sure feels like he’s playing chess and everyone else is playing checkers.

The moment Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry, they had campaign videos ready to go and Trump was on Twitter saying he’s releasing everything. He’s either about to incriminate himself or he’s just called their bluff in epic fashion. Right now, according to current reports about what’s actually in the complaint, the latter seems the most probable.

We may be witnessing the most savage troll in political history.

Cocaine Mitch to Dems: Impeachment Is Not a Tool to Be Used for “Relitigating” Elections You Lost

Talk of impeaching President Trump is once again at fever pitch in Washington, DC as the House’s Orange Man Bad Caucus (erroneously) thinks they finally have enough goods on Trump to impeach him.

It’s increasingly likely that their latest foray into impeachment will go as disastrously as their last one, which perhaps is one reason of many why Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued a blistering statement this week noting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has lost control of her “far-left conference.”

More importantly, McConnell reminded Democrats once again that the process of impeachment is not a tool to be used for the highly partisan purpose of “relitigating” elections they’ve lost:

Washington Democrats have been searching for ways to reverse their 2016 election defeat since before President Trump was even inaugurated.

The result has been a two-and-a-half-year impeachment parade in search of a rationale. When investigations by Special Counsel Mueller and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence deflated their breathless accusations of a campaign conspiracy with Russia, Democrats have simply shifted to new arguments for their predetermined conclusion.

Speaker Pelosi’s much-publicized efforts to restrain her far-left conference have finally crumbled. House Democrats cannot help themselves. Instead of working together across party lines on legislation to help American families and strengthen our nation, they will descend even deeper into their obsession with relitigating 2016.

Here’s his full statement below:

President Trump has okayed a Wednesday release of the “complete, fully declassified and unredacted” transcript of his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

In addition to that, Politico reports that the White House is in the process of releasing the “whistleblower” complaint that prompted the latest round of impeachment fever, which Congress could receive as soon as Friday.

Stay tuned.

Biden’s Press Conference Demonstrates What a Cowed and Compliant Political Media We Have

Westlake Legal Group Joe_Biden_hands Biden’s Press Conference Demonstrates What a Cowed and Compliant Political Media We Have Ukraine Politics Media Joe Biden hunter biden Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats delaware corruption Allow Media Exception

Yesterday, Joe Biden took a break from trying to find ways of getting male convicts into women’s prisons, sniffing the hair of random women and watching his poll trajectory begin to resemble the Hindenburg to try to make that hobo jump onto Nancy Pelosi’s Impeachment Express.

What is astonishing about this is that Joe Biden, himself, is at Ground Zero of this debacle. It was through his influence peddling, or conversely through Ukraine’s attempt to gain influence with Biden, that his drug addict, grifting whelp got a $50,000/month job on the board of directors of a Ukraine national gas company at the time when Joe Biden was allegedly the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine policy. It is Joe Biden that we have on tape boasting about demanding–and getting–a Ukraine anti-corruption prosecutor fired because the guy was getting too close to his son. And yet, the political press acts like gentle stenographers.

Imagine if you will, President Trump being allowed to prose on for about 15 minutes with no interruptions and have the press cover the statement as Revelation and not even mention Trump’s role? Read this article to see how it was covered. Listen to the meek, barely audible questions asked as Biden strides majestically from the podium? Do those folks sound serious? No. They don’t.

After Biden was safely gone, then the spin started.

Wait…you don’t think there was a purpose in getting a free infomercial chock-a-block with his talking points distributed without contradiction? You don’t think there was value in getting every major print outlet to use his talking points as a segue to attacking Trump? He may be right about it not moving the needle but that isn’t because Biden wasn’t trying nor because he didn’t get a lot of help.

Trump’s Crime? Asking Zelensky to Reopen Investigation Ukraine was Forced to Close After Biden’s Thuggish Threat

The dictionary defines psychosis as a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality. The person with this condition usually isn’t aware of his or her behavior. Democrats appear to be afflicted with this condition.

Devastated by Trump’s victory nearly three years ago and unable to accept it to this day, they are convinced of the alternate reality they have created. Instead of moving through the typical stages of grief and ultimately reaching acceptance, they remain stuck in denial. Their group malady has caused enormous damage to the country and it’s time for some shock therapy.

The reality which they are currently rejecting is that the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s office was engaged in an investigation of Burisma Holdings in 2016. Their examination turned up a series of odd payments being made to a company owned by then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his business partner. Naturally, it was difficult for them to comprehend why Hunter, who had no previous business experience in the energy industry, had earned $3 million from Burisma between 2014 and 2015. Knowing that Joe Biden had been appointed by the Obama administration in early 2014 as their “point man” for Ukraine, investigators obviously suspected this arrangement might be corrupt and required further scrutiny.

In December 2015, the New York Times published a story that Burisma was under investigation. Joe Biden then learned that his son was about to be questioned by the prosecutor general’s office and the pressure from Biden (and the Obama administration) to prevent this from happening began.

In January 2016, the White House invited Ukrainian prosecutors to Washington to meet their US counterparts to discuss ways to fight corruption.

The Hill’s John Solomon described this meeting in a recent article:

The meeting, promised as training, turned out to be more of a pretext for the Obama administration to pressure Ukraine’s prosecutors to drop an investigation into the Burisma Holdings gas company that employed Hunter Biden and to look for new evidence in a then-dormant criminal case against eventual Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, a GOP lobbyist.

U.S. officials “kept talking about how important it was that all of our anti-corruption efforts be united,” said Andrii Telizhenko, the former political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington who organized and attended the meetings.

Solomon spoke to Nazar Kholodnytsky, Ukraine’s chief anti-corruption prosecutor, who had attended the meeting, shortly afterward. Kholodnytsky told him he saw evidence in Ukraine of political meddling in the U.S. election.

Still, the investigation into Burisma continued. In March 2016, Joe Biden took matters into his own hands and threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid unless the prosecutor who was about to question his son was fired. The Ukrainian government, close to bankruptcy, was forced to comply and Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin was fired.

The Vice President of the United States was ready to withhold $1 billion in aid to Ukraine to prevent legal problems for his son. This was an egregious abuse of power.

All of this, of course, is well documented. Biden himself boasted about it. (Why would he ever do that?)

Fast forward to July 25, 2019.

President Trump asks new Ukrainian President Volodymyr to reopen the investigation which Joe Biden improperly forced the former President to end in March 2016, threatening to withhold aid.

Trump was asking for Biden’s corrupt action to be reversed. 

A whistleblower who is said to be highly partisan and who did not hear the conversation between President Trump and President Zelensky files a complaint with the Intelligence Community Inspector General. I won’t take you through the sequence of events of the last week because we are all too familiar with them.

A media uproar follows.

On Tuesday, President Trump announces he will release a transcript of the call on Wednesday.

Democrats, who have been demanding the transcript for days say that’s not good enough. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes worried about the trustworthiness of the transcript.

As did CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Before even reading the transcript which will be released hours from now, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Democrats have seen no evidence yet. Neither the whistleblower or the Director of National Intelligence have testified before Congress, but that didn’t stop Pelosi from holding a press conference. Lawmakers in the House have not even taken a vote on this measure.

Recall the definition of psychosis above. Pelosi’s press conference showed that her “thoughts and emotions were so impaired that contact was lost with external reality.” It appeared that she wasn’t “aware of his or her behavior.” She was convinced of the alternate reality she (and the Democrats) have created. And she remains stuck in denial.
