I really doubt you’re going to enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing this headline.

This is the story. A 24-year-old ex-Marine who is a bodybuilder is going to claim he was banging Elizabeth Warren for “several months.” I’m assuming he is deaf-blind and has learned how to suppress the gag reflex.

All of this is totally tongue-in-cheek…the face cheek not the other cheek, ugh, you people appall me at times…because Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl are grifters and fraudsters (Wohl in currently under federal indictment for securities fraud). The were the two brainiacs behind the press conference that accused Robert Mueller of sexual harassment only to have the accuser not show and they masterminded the sexual assault allegation against Pete Buttigieg that ended when the accuser confessed he was being paid.

This is the kind of cheap chickensh** that you’d expect from a CNN employee. What is unclear is what they think they are accomplishing with this nonsense.

Giuliani Fires Back at Critics with Guns Blazing

Westlake Legal Group giuliani-620x759 Giuliani Fires Back at Critics with Guns Blazing Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

Rudy Giuliani appeared on Hannity last night with guns blazing. He was armed with several signed, sworn affidavits that first, eviscerate former Vice President Joe Biden’s claim that Shokin was fired because he was corrupt and, second, prove the case that the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign colluded with pro-Hillary Ukrainian officials to influence the 2016 presidential election. Officials admit that this collusion impacted the race, because it took down Paul Manafort. This was the real collusion that took place in 2016.

Giuliani’s main message was that Democrats are attempting to impeach President Trump based on a document that would not be admissible in a court of law. Even before yesterday’s bombshell news that the whistleblower (WB) approached staffers on Adam Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee for advice on how to proceed with his complaint before he submitted it, the Democrats had no case. The whistleblower’s complaint consists entirely of hearsay evidence and U.S. courts only allow direct witness testimony. He explained that even if a witness with hearsay evidence might not be lying, they are relying on other people who may have lied to him. That’s why hearsay evidence is not allowable.

Giuliani said he began investigating all of this in November 2018 and finished on March 28, 2019. During that time, he reminds us, the Mueller investigation was ongoing and he was searching for evidence to “vindicate my client,” President Donald Trump. He told Hannity:

This information was given to me. I didn’t go looking for Joe Biden. The Ukrainians brought me substantial evidence of collusion with Hillary Clinton, the DNC, George Soros, George Soros’ company. They put it in my lap. They came and gave me testimony. I wrote it out.

I had a professional investigator make FBI 302s of it. Eventually, it was John Solomon [investigative reporter who has been instrumental in uncovering this story], who should get a Pulitzer Prize, by the way, who put them all on tape, so it’s all memorialized on videotape.

I interviewed [Yuriy] Lutsenko [appointed as acting Ukrainian Prosecutor General after Biden had his predecessor, Viktor Shokin, fired].

This is as solid as you can get. I didn’t do what this phony WB did. This phony whistleblower is giving hearsay evidence. He says, “I’m not a direct witness.” Okay, useless, pal. Goodbye.

Giuliani presented a sworn affidavit from Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian Prosecutor General whom Biden had ordered fired in March 2016. This document was shown to “aides from the Senate committees on Intelligence, Foreign Relations, Appropriations and Homeland Security, as well as aides from the House committees on Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, Appropriations and Oversight” in a secured briefing by the State Department’s Inspector General late Wednesday. Fox News obtained a copy and reported it last night. My colleague, Sarah Lee, posted on this earlier here.

They’re corrupt as sin. The Ukrainian oligarch, [Mykola] Zlochevsky, didn’t pay millions for Hunter Biden’s nonexistent skills. He paid millions to buy the Vice President’s office and it was a good deal for Zlochevsky. He got Hunter Biden off the hook, he got Soros’ company out of jeopardy and he got to come back to the Ukraine and keep his $5 billion just for giving up maybe $100 million.

He is actually going around the Ukraine saying it was well worth it to spend the money to do it. If anyone would care to investigate, they would find everything I just said. Except the FBI didn’t investigate for a year and a half. The Justice Dept. didn’t investigate for a year and a half. Witnesses were afraid to go to the FBI and the Justice Dept. which was actually like living in an alternate universe…

So, Giuliani gave it to the State Dept., including his witness notes. And never heard from them again. They never called him for an interview and to his knowledge, they never contacted Shokin or Lutsenko. It was just dropped. Giuliani said Shokin would like to give his testimony.

(Note: Apparently, it wasn’t dropped because it was Giuliani’s interview with Shokin that Congressional aides were briefed on by last night by the State Department’s Inspector General.)

And if you don’t interview an eye witness who wants to testify under oath, and wants to be a confrontational accuser, which is what the constitution requires, you’ve got to be faced with your accusers. He’s willing to face Joe Biden and say, “You’re guilty. You participated in a bribe with my President. You got me thrown out so that the case against Soros, the case against a billionaire and the case against your son [would go away]. And everybody knows you’re corrupt Joe…

[Shokin’s] poor. Lutsenko’s got a lot of dough. Big cars. Lots of money. Shokin is living in a village, he’s living in a cottage. He’s actually hiding and scared out of his mind they’re going to kill him.

If you think the President of the Ukraine [Petro Poroshenko was President in 2016], let out one of the richest people, let him get away with $5 billion, without, what do they say in The Godfather, filling their beaks…if you don’t think Poroshenko got big millions for this, then you shouldn’t be in the investigatory business.

Hannity asks Giuliani about his proposed lawsuit. Giuliani said that today’s bombshell (mentioned above) advances his case.

He [Whistleblower] would have been ignored until they changed the rules.

Every bit of Shokin’s interview is admissible in court, but they don’t interview Shokin. Actually Shokin testifies to real corruption.

Everything this guy [WB] says about me is false. My meeting with Yermak was not set up because of the conversation. The two people he said I set up. You know why, idiot? Because it was set up before the conversation. The two people he said I called, I never called. One of them, I didn’t call because he was put on the list of corrupt people I shouldn’t talk to there. And I happened to have independent knowledge of that so he doesn’t know what he’s talking about with regard to me. There are apparent indications, I can point out seven or eight where he’s lying.

Actually, he may not be lying. He’s relying on other people. Maybe they lied to him. That’s why hearsay evidence is not allowable. Shokin has direct evidence. [Inaudible] has direct evidence. Ilyende has direct evidence. Lutsenko has direct evidence. [Andrii] Telizhenko has direct evidence. I have six witnesses who can give direct, admissible evidence of Ukrainian collusion, participation in the Steele dossier with phony information, the creation of false evidence, and a very clear corruption scheme by the Vice President of the United States and that has to be vindicated and all of it was exposed before he was a candidate for president. And it’s not because he’s a candidate for president because he was a corrupt, disgraceful Vice President who disgraced our country in the Ukraine, and in China and their still talking about how corrupt he is and how stupid we are for not catching it. It has to be vindicated for the honor of the United States of America. He disgraced us. And if you don’t react to that, you have no sense of honor or dignity.

Brit Hume Lays the Smack Down on Adam Schiff’s Defenders

Social Media republicans Politics North Carolina Media Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Culture Congress California Brit Hume Allow Media Exception adam schiff

In light of what was reported yesterday about what House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff knew and when he knew it regarding the whistleblower complaint, a whole lot of apologists are predictably weighing in essentially saying his deception was/is no big deal.

CNBC’s John Harwood was one such person, and he specifically took issue with comments veteran journalist Brit Hume made about the New York Times’ report on Schiff’s early knowledge of the complaint. Here’s what Hume wrote:

Hume is, of course, right, but Harwood responded with what he probably thought was a brilliant takedown. Hume wasn’t having it:

Later in the day, Hume pinpointed some of the biggest flaws in the arguments Schiff’s defenders were making:

Schiff and company point to his use of the word “directly” when he was asked about what he knew in a recent interview:

… as if that puts him in the free and clear on the issue colluding with the whistleblower well in advance.

It doesn’t.

Reps. Liz Cheney and Doug Collins were right. This looks like a political set-up a la the Russia collusion hoax.

I’d say Schiff and his minions should be ashamed but that would mean assuming they had any shame. They don’t.

The Left Wants to Cancel Gandhi Now, but the Internet Isn’t Having It

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-3-620x413 The Left Wants to Cancel Gandhi Now, but the Internet Isn’t Having It Social Justice Sexism racism Popular Culture npr gandhi Front Page Stories cancel culture #metoo

No one is immune from the ravages of cancel culture. If you commit a sin, someone will find it, expose it to the world, and ruin your name and reputation no matter how much of a revered saint you are. This now includes leftist hero Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, because now the left wants to cancel him too.

An article from NPR delves into all of Gandhi’s more disagreeable positions and wrote an article about it. NPR pushed the article into the public’s hands with a tweet that read: “While Gandhi is deeply revered as a spiritual and political leader, people are now scrutinizing his sexual practices and his early writings in South Africa, which many black Africans are calling racist.”

The article makes it clear that Gandhi harbored racist thoughts and wrote them down. They even start the section off with words in bold saying “Gandhi was a racist”:

Last year, a Gandhi statue was removed from a university campus in Ghana. Activists there and in Malawi are using the hashtag #GandhiMustFall. They’re angry about his early writings.

In 1903, when Gandhi was in South Africa, he wrote that white people there should be “the predominating race.” He also said black people “are troublesome, very dirty and live like animals.”

There’s no way around it: Gandhi was a racist early in his life, says his biographer Ramachandra Guha.

They make it clear, however, that Gandhi outgrew his racism. However, that doesn’t seem to matter. He once was racist and that’s enough for many.

He was also a perv, and famously slept naked with his grandniece in her late teens to test his willpower. The #MeToo feminists are up in arms to be sure:

That included gender discrimination. Gandhi championed women in politics. But he was also obsessed with his own celibacy. In his late 70s, before he died at 78, he slept naked with his grandniece when she was in her late teens. He said he wanted to test his willpower to abstain from sex.

Nowadays, most people would call that abuse. Some question whether the young female was capable of giving consent as a minor to a man who was so revered and so much more powerful than she.

To be sure, this move by Gandhi was more than odd, venturing well into gross. Still, I’m not sure it’s worth overturning a man’s entire legacy over.

Many on the internet apparently think the exact same, as they made it clear that while Gandhi wasn’t perfect, cancel culture is now going too far.

It goes on for miles.

The last tweet I posted has a very good point, but it’s not just historical figures, it applies to everyone. No one is perfect and everyone does things that they ultimately regret. Using someone’s mistakes as a way to define someone is not only a horrible representation of the person, it encourages a mentality within our society that is dangerous.

We become a society that’s too afraid to mistakes, and making mistakes is one of the best learning tools humans have into becoming better people, and as a result, a better society.

Cancel culture is a plague.

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.

Joe Cunningham: A False Narrative Is Stoking Fears Over The New Joker Movie

Westlake Legal Group Joker-620x349 Joe Cunningham: A False Narrative Is Stoking Fears Over The New Joker Movie Narrative movie mental illness Media mass shooting Joker Guns Front Page Stories Featured Story Culture Colorado Aurora Allow Media Exception

It is very difficult for me to trust Warner Bros. to do any justice to a DC live-action movie ever since they started trying to churn out their own “cinematic universe” to rival Marvel’s. However, being a standalone film and not tied to any of those abominations, there is a lot of positive feedback for Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix.

The problem is that the last time the Joker had a major, perception-altering role in cinema, there was a shooting that was attributed to a worship of the character.

Many police forces are announcing they’ll be providing security at theaters to prevent another “Aurora-style” mass shooting. Other critics are pointing out the idol-worship that comes with making the villain the hero of his movie. Many people are just outraged that we would dare portray a mentally-ill person like this.

However, much of this fear and hatred is based off Aurora, Colorado, where a lunatic took a gun and shot multiple people at the premiere of The Dark Knight, where Heath Leger’s portrayal of Joker was widely acclaimed. There were reports that the movie – and Leger’s Joker in particular – were motivating factors for the shooting.

Those reports, though, were bogus.

The Washington Post’s story with the photo gallery said this: “Holmes, who told police he was ‘the Joker’ … .”

The article linked to a 2012 ABC News report with a statement by New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, saying Holmes had called himself the Joker.

Kelly’s comment to the press appears to be the origin of this myth. Why the NYPD police commissioner would be in a position to know anything about police activity in Aurora is beyond me.

Indeed, why would New York’s police commissioner know or even comment on that?

“It is not true,” said George Brauchler, the 18th Judicial District attorney, who prosecuted the case.

“It is ridiculous,” he said. “Completely unfounded. Some of this stuff. … It gets repeated by so many sources by people doing their research that it just becomes real.”

Investigators heard no witness talking about the Joker, he said. And no police officer claimed Holmes called himself the Joker.

People point to the shooter’s red hair as a sign of the idol worship – except the Joker’s hair is green and when asked by investigators, the shooter himself said it was because red suggests bravery.

But nonetheless, there is a panic among people who think that the Aurora shooting coupled with the political and social environment we live in will undoubtedly lead to another major event. It’s impossible to say one way or another whether that’s the case, but as is so often the case, the issue has way more to do with mental health than it does the move of the night.

If someone were to do try for a repeat, they will be doing so because of the myth that was constructed here, not because of the worship of the Joker. The Joker is a compelling character, no matter what interpretation you are viewing, but he’s not someone who gets “worshipped.” However, the myth of James Holmes, the Aurora shooter, and the reduced inhibitions of someone who is mentally ill and seeking to be remembered for something like he is are far more likely to bring trouble.

Had the myth of Holmes as “The Joker” not been spun into existence by people who were ignorant of the case, then that risk would be greatly diminished. Instead, we get people who, once again, like to find ways to blame something else other than mental illness as the reason people do horrific things.

Fired Ukrainian Prosecutor Confirms Giuliani’s Story, Says He WAS Pressured To Stop Investigating Burisma

Former VP Joe Biden’s attempts to have news outlets ban Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani from appearing on their networks is starting to come into focus.

Details of a January interview Giuliani had with fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin — who it has been alleged was fired after Biden pressured Ukraine due to Shokin’s investigation into Burisma Holdings, LLC, where Biden’s son sat on the board — were given to Congress by the State Department’s Inspector General and made available to Fox News Wednesday.

They confirm that Shokin told Giuliani he was fired after pressure from Biden, and that his “investigations stopped out of fear of the United States.”

“Mr. Shokin attempted to continue the investigations but on or around June or July of 2015, the U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which according to Mr. Shokin, that implied do nothing,” the notes from the interview stated. The notes also claimed Shokin was told Biden had held up U.S. aid to Ukraine over the investigation.

Shokin was fired in April 2016, and his case was “closed by the current Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko,” according to the notes. Despite his claims, Shokin, on both sides of the Atlantic, had been widely accused of corruption.

Shokin’s termination has become a lightening rod after it was mentioned on a phone call between Trump and new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. That conversation led to a whistleblower report and allegations that Trump was trying to use government resources and his own private attorneys to dig up dirt on his political opponent Biden, who is a candidate in the 2020 presidential election.

Despite a video from 2018 in which Biden himself seems to acknowledge that he pressured Ukraine to fire Shokin — and that he threatened to withhold aid to the nation if they failed to carry out the termination — the former vice president has said his only concern was what he felt was Shokin’s role in Ukrainian corruption, not Burisma where his son had business ties.

Details of the interview, which occurred over the phone with translators, were handed off to Fox News by sources after an urgent briefing Wednesday by State Department Inspector General Steve Linick.

Linick gave a closed-door briefing on Ukraine to aides from the Senate committees on Intelligence, Foreign Relations, Appropriations and Homeland Security, as well as aides from the House committees on Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, Appropriations and Oversight. The briefing lasted over an hour and took place in a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) on Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon.

Linick shared a file with those who attended the briefing, containing multiple folders with the Trump Hotel logo on them. Inside the folders were notes from an interview conducted by Giuliani in January 2019 with Shokin, as well as Lutsenko. Another folder contained news clips, as well as several timelines about investigations related to Burisma.

A State Department spokesman on Wednesday confirmed to Fox News that the “relevant” materials Linick shared with Congress “were provided by the Department to the Inspector General on May 3, 2019 for his review and for such action as the Inspector General deemed appropriate.”

Giuliani, in a statement to Fox News, said the interview occurred before Biden announced his presidential run, and that he had shared them with the State Department and was disappointed there had been no investigation into the matter.

The September phone call in which Trump raised the issue of Shokin’s firing has led to the current push for an impeachment inquiry and Democrats demands for forthcoming hearings to determine if Trump tried to use his political influence to pressure Ukraine to find opposition research on Biden before the 2020 election.

Did Adam Schiff Force Nancy Pelosi’s Hand On Impeachment?

There are two things that we have to acknowledge.

The first is that an idea that was widely panned by liberals and journalists as a conspiracy theory was confirmed by the New York Times yesterday. The second is that, in confirming it, we might have a glimpse into the coup that is happening right under Nancy Pelosi’s nose.

Most conservatives who dared to suggest that the rollout of the whistleblower complaint was a coordinated drip-drip by House Democrats (particularly Adam Schiff) were attacked as crazy conspiracy theorists for the past couple of days. Then, the Times released their story and basically confirmed that, yes, Schiff had knowledge of this for a month and a half and could, at least theoretically, have planned a slow rollout.

WASHINGTON — The Democratic head of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, learned about the outlines of a C.I.A. officer’s concerns that President Trump had abused his power days before the officer filed a whistle-blower complaint, according to a spokesman and current and former American officials.

As Erick Erickson mentioned on his Atlanta-based radio show yesterday, the writers here omitted a very important piece of information in this opening paragraph – and the entire story.

The whistle-blower complaint was filed on August 12. The news broke in late September.

That’s a pretty big omission because, without that context, you could read that paragraph and think this is all recent stuff. But, it isn’t. It’s a month and a half of trying to build a (rather shoddy) impeachment case. A case, the Times adds, the whistle-blower didn’t seem able to make he got “help” from House Intelligence aides.

The early account by the future whistle-blower shows how determined he was to make known his allegations that Mr. Trump asked Ukraine’s government to interfere on his behalf in the 2020 election. It also explains how Mr. Schiff knew to press for the complaint when the Trump administration initially blocked lawmakers from seeing it.

The C.I.A. officer approached a House Intelligence Committee aide with his concerns about Mr. Trump only after he had had a colleague first convey them to the C.I.A.’s top lawyer. Concerned about how that initial avenue for airing his allegations through the C.I.A. was unfolding, the officer then approached the House aide. In both cases, the original accusation was vague.

However, the caveat here is that we still don’t have all the information. Only the publicly-released information. There are investigations and, as I said last week, the whistle-blower’s complaint is written in a way that makes it appear more as a road map to impeachment rather than an impeachment accusation itself. There is still the (in my opinion, rapidly shrinking) chance that someone does have something that could be properly used against Trump.

But that is a discussion for lawyers and people who are interested in pursuing this rabbit hole. I am not. Instead, I find it way more fascinating to note that the New York Times story also had another glaring omission: Nancy Pelosi’s name.

The Speaker of the House, the loudest and most powerful voice against impeachment proceedings, appears nowhere in the timeline the Times has built for this story. If Pelosi knew about the whistle-blower complaint, it appears that it came way later than the House Intelligence’s discovery of it.

That isn’t a mistake on Schiff’s part as chairman of that committee. That’s a straight-up coup of Pelosi’s role as Speaker of the House and leader of the Democrats in Congress. Schiff kept this from his boss.

If that is the case, then Pelosi would do best to announce retirement now. She’s got no real power left. Let Nadler or Schiff or, God help us, Ocasio-Cortez fight for the job. If one of her closest lieutenants kept this whistle-blower report from her – and there is very little evidence suggesting she was in on it from the start or even from the middle – then she does not even have the respect of her House leaders.

Schiff not only prepped a slow rollout of the whistleblower complaint, but did so behind the back of (supposedly) the most powerful woman in Congress. He forced her hand on impeachment, a move she has carefully sought to avoid making.

That’s a whole bloody rebellion.

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.”
