Attention may finally be turning toward the question of just exactly what was Hunter Biden doing in Ukraine and China while his father Joe was Vice President and point man for the Obama administration on those countries.

But Democrats really don’t want you to hear it.

Even Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who is running for president in the primary against Joe Biden, came to his defense in a cringeworthy moment when questioned by the media as to what she thought. Would she approve of her Vice President’s son or daughter serving on the board of a foreign oil company as Hunter did?

“As far as I’m concerned, leave Joe Biden alone,” she said, claiming it’s a distraction (from the real goal of getting President Donald Trump). How dare people look at what Hunter Biden was doing in Ukraine and China while his dad was influencing critical decisions on those two countries!

One shouldn’t ask questions about the propriety of things like this:

Or why Hunter Biden would be appointed to a board of an energy company in Ukraine, receiving $50,000/month when he has no experience in the field.

Harris’ defense of Biden was just too much for former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

Right on the money.

Democrats want to distract from the real issue, which is that they have countenanced this kind of thing, both with Biden and with the Clintons.

If a candidate running for president doesn’t see the problem with it and just wants to dismiss it, maybe that person really shouldn’t be running for president.

Good on Haley for calling it out.

The Democrats are Gaslighting Americans…Again

The Democrats have gaslighted Americans. The term “gaslighting” refers to the phenomenon in which “someone insists so strenuously on a false version of events that those listening start doubting the reality right in front of their eyes.” Over time, the victims start to believe the fiction which is being told to them. This technique has been used by dictators and tyrants throughout history as a means of gaining and maintaining power.

The events of the last week have a certain illusory quality about them. Facts don’t matter. The Democrats’ narrative matters.

They skate over the very real evidence that, at the very least, Hunter Biden’s cushy job and his appointment to the board of Burisma Holdings while his father, the Vice President of the United States at the time, served as the Obama administration’s “point man” in Ukraine, represented a conflict of interests. And that Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid to the country unless they fired their Prosecutor General. Evidence points to the fact that Shokin was about to investigate his son as the reason Biden wanted him fired. Biden maintains the reason was because he believed that Shokin was corrupt. Whatever the reason, the fact remains that Biden insisted that the Ukrainian President fire this man or he would hold back the funds which the country needed desperately.

Although existing evidence makes it pretty clear that Shokin was fired because he was about to interrogate Hunter Biden, I’m constructing a “least bad” scenario.

Fact 1: Hunter’s dealings represented a conflict of interest. The Obama Administration was concerned about the optics of this going into the 2016 election.

Fact 2: Biden leveraged U.S. aid to force the firing of a Ukrainian official.

Fact #1 shows poor judgement as opposed to a violation of the law.

Fact #2 may very well be a violation of the law. I am not a lawyer, but it does sound like extortion or bribery to me. At the very least, it’s unethical and corrupt and it’s something that would sway the decision of an American voter.

So, the Democrats, ignoring the Bidens’ actions, have taken the mendacious, second and third-hand claims of a highly partisan whistleblower (in name only) who hides behind the protection of his whistleblower status and they’ve gone from zero to impeachment.

The fact that President Trump immediately released the actual transcript of the call, showing how far removed the reality was from their dire and disingenuous fabrication, hasn’t stopped them. Though they would have preferred he hadn’t done so, they have continued on their mission to destroy his presidency.

The well-known Bible verse comes to mind: “Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?” (Matthew, 7)

The fact that Biden is a potential political rival of Trump’s is irrelevant. There is actual evidence of, at the very least, unethical conduct by both Bidens and quite possibly illegal activity.

Obama clearly wanted Hillary Clinton to succeed him in office in 2016. It was well-known he did everything he possibly could to discourage Biden from running. That made Donald Trump Obama’s political rival. The Obama FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation of their political rival based on a set of lies prepared by foreign ex-spy Christopher Steele whose work was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and his preferred candidate’s campaign. They went so far as to send spies into the Trump campaign. According to former U.S. attorney and current National Review writer Andrew McCarthy, only a president can order a counterintelligence investigation to be initiated. The mission to end Trump’s candidacy involved dozens of Obama Administration officials.

Contrast that with President Trump’s request to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into behavior that had the appearance of genuine impropriety and for which a past investigation had been ended for dubious reasons. The U.S. has a long-standing treaty with Ukraine which encourages cooperation in the investigation and prosecution of crimes. One might even argue that, knowing of the Bidens’ misdeeds, Trump had an obligation to get to the truth.

The Democrats are taking a huge political risk by trying to impeach Trump over such a minor issue. The reason may be the awareness that none of their current presidential candidates have a strong chance of defeating Trump in 2020.

Also, they know that DOJ IG Michael Horowitz’ report, due any day, will not be kind to them and that John Durham’s report will be a disaster for them. It will likely see many creatures of the deep state discredited and some in legal jeopardy.

For two years, they counted on the Mueller investigation to deliver the goods. When their hopes were dashed, they had to come up with something else. The clock is ticking.

They chose an especially weak “crime” which has been unraveling by the day.

Yet, with straight faces, they act as if Trump is the most heinous, dangerous politician in U.S. history. And this total fiction is reinforced 24/7 by the mainstream media.

Nancy Pelosi was interviewed over the weekend at the Texas Tribune Festival. She was interviewed by Evan Smith, the Tribune’s CEO and founder. They were discussing the possibility that impeachment could hurt Democrats’ chances of holding the House majority in 2020.

Smith asked, “do you have any anxiety at all about any of the stuff we’re talking about or anything that we’re not talking about impacting your ability to hold control of the House in 2020?

Pelosi replied, “Doesn’t matter.”

Smith found that to be an odd answer and said, “It doesn’t matter?”

To which the Speaker responded, “Our first responsibility is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

I used to wonder if Democrats believe their own lies. I think now that they do. The anger and frustration which they have felt since the days of Trump’s candidacy has turned into rage and has completely consumed them. It’s made them sick inside.

They’re running out of time and their options are limited. So, they will continue trying to gaslight Americans although it’s not as effective since their Russian collusion conspiracy failed. They’ve become sloppy and reckless and many voters have caught on to them. So, they will continue their fight.

For what else can they do?

The figures are in!  In June, there were 60% fewer apprehensions at the US-Mexico border than in May.  This is good news in that the flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border has decreased.

What has always struck this writer is the ignorance played by Mexico in the situation.  While a firm believer that the United States should strengthen our southern border be it with a wall, stronger interdiction efforts, or an increase in manpower up to and including military personnel, the big question left out of the equation was: What was Mexico doing to strengthen their northern border?

The answer previously was nothing.  Corrupt Mexican officials were in the pocket of drug cartels and illegal immigrant coyotes.  If not in the pocket, they were killed, turned a blind eye, or simply were overwhelmed and did not give a crap.  Most Mexican immigrants came to the United States for economic opportunity but with an improved Mexican economy, those dynamics have changed.   Instead, most of the problems at the southern border are immigrants from Central America- namely, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Honduras.

So what changed?  After President Trump threatened to slap tariffs on 100% of Mexican goods imported into the country, Mexico changed its tune.  Yes… we heard that the price of tequila and guacamole would go through the roof, but the powers-that-be in Mexico City heard something else.

As a result, Mexico has beefed up security at THEIR southern border with Guatemala.  All those refugees, immigrants, dreamers and criminals are finding it much harder to cross into Mexico.  As any reader of a map will tell you, to get from the US from these Central American countries, you have to first pass through Mexico.

Even a spokesman for a pro-migrant group, Allianza Americas, admits Trump’s bullying policy has worked.  Says Oscar Chacon: “I think that they are getting exactly what they said they would get, by forcing the hand of Mexico.  But the question is, is it sustainable?”  As long as Trump is President, this writer says, “YES!”

The policy has also forced Mexico to house, feed, and care for thousands of “asylum” seekers until their cases are decided in the United States.  While the issue of asylum is a tricky one given that poem on a statue in New York Harbor, it must also be realized that a poem is not immigration policy (with all apologies to Jim Acosta).   While this writer does not think it should take 6-8 months to make these decisions, this writer also realizes that not all, perhaps the majority, of the asylum cases are not legitimate.  Thus, better to err on the side of caution.  If the answer is a change to the asylum laws or more manpower or just plain brute strength and a solid “NO,” this writer knows not.

But one thing is certain.  After following through with tariffs on China, the European Union, and Canada, Mexico realizes they are dealing with a President who will not back down.  All the cajoling and niceties expressed between Bush and Obama with Mexican leaders did little to stem the flow of illegal immigrants across the southern border whether they were from Mexico itself or points further south.

This week, Mexican and American officials will meet to discuss Mexico’s efforts to decrease Central American migration through their country with the United States as the final destination.  They are expected to ask for an expedited asylum process.  There are no objections to that request.  Unfortunately, you have many in Congress (ahem…Democrats) who think “expedited” means everybody.  They are also expected to ask the US to take measures to curb the flow of guns into Mexico.  As for that request, thankfully Eric Holder is not the Attorney General.  Finally, they are expected to ask the US to increase aid to Central America.

As for the final request, this writer has no problem with the concept in the abstract.  However, for too many years we have seen too many American tax dollars squandered around the world.  Provided there are enough safeguards that ensure that Nicaraguans will stay in Nicaragua, that Hondurans will stay in Honduras, that Mexicans will stay in Mexico and Guatemalans will stay in Guatemala, there should be no objections.

In the interim, if the statistics are to be believed and if they are an indication of a trend, then President Trump, despite his shortcomings elsewhere, should continue to play the economic bully as concerns immigration.

After all, what does the United States stand to lose?  Fewer Californians eating guacamole and fewer people drunk on tequila may not be a bad thing after all.

Trump, GOP Call for Action on Adam Schiff Fabricating Trump Quotes

Westlake Legal Group smug-schiff Trump, GOP Call for Action on Adam Schiff Fabricating Trump Quotes Uncategorized Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress

FILE- In this Feb. 5, 2018, file photo, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., ranking member of the House Committee on Intelligence, pauses while speaking during a media availability after a closed-door meeting of the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Two weeks after President Donald Trump blocked its full release, the House Intelligence Committee published on Saturday, Feb. 24, a partially blacked-out version of a classified Democratic memo aiming to counter a GOP narrative that the FBI and Justice Department conspired against Trump as they investigated his ties to Russia. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)

On Thursday, during a live Committee hearing concerning President Donald Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) fabricated Trump quotes. Schiff pretended to read from a transcript of the Trump phone call with the president of the Ukraine and made up several false things.

Republicans are now taking action.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) introduced a motion in the House to censure Schiff which he explains during an appearance on Fox News. Biggs also noted how another one of the Democrats’ claims, that the conversation shouldn’t have been put on a secure server, fails. There was classified information on the call since Trump was discussing other nations with the Ukrainian president. That type of information, Biggs observed, is always classified. That in itself would justify putting it on the secure server in addition to the justifiable concern that the Trump administration has had about leaks.

President Trump also called on Schiff to resign.

According to PJ Media, Trump said that Schiff had “made up & twisted words into my call with the Ukrainian President to make it look like I did something very wrong.”

The president tweeted, Schiff “then boldly read those words to Congress and millions of people, defaming & libeling me. He must resign from Congress!”

He literally made up quotes from a conversation President Trump had with the leader of another nation, thereby not only undermining the President’s position at home but abroad too. America’s position is now weakened because of a) the content of Schiff’s lies and b) the publication of the transcript of a supposedly confidential conversation between two heads-of-state — a transcript that had to be released because of Rep. Schiff’s lies. Other leaders will now think twice before telling the president anything important for fear it might be leaked by Democrats in Congress and their allies in the CIA.

While claiming to care about Trump’s actions, Schiff is actually the one who put our national security in greater peril.

Schiff not only made those comments on Thursday, but he doubled down on the lies today on ABC with George Stephanopoulos, again claiming that Trump tried “to coerce that leader to manufacture dirt on his opponent and interfere in our election” which happened “at a time when the president is withholding hundreds of millions of dollars in assistance to Ukraine,” none of which was true.

And of course, that’s not the only problem when it comes to Schiff in this matter. He claimed to Stephanopoulos that once he found out about the complaint he went public and called for its release. But he only went public in the past week. He’s known about the complaint and may have even seen it since at least August 12. What he told Stephanopoulos today about that was untrue.

So what did Adam Schiff know and when did he know it?

Schiff has a long history falsehoods. It’s long past time that he be called on it.

Giuliani Defends Trump, Points a Finger at Biden and Barack. Collusion? And We’re Doomed

On Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani went to bat for the Commander-in-Chief and pointed to Barack and Biden in the process.

Rudy explained to host Maria Bartiromo that his function’s fairly elementary:

“My role is very, very simple. I’m a lawyer defending a client.”

The former mayor of New York also said he’s sniffin’ a lead on some stuff that could not only prove Trump was collusion-free in 2016, but would also finger Democrats as in cahoots with Ukraine:

“If you can prove that somebody else did it, or there’s some other explanation for it, then you pursue that vigorously.”

Rudy also addressed his part in looking into allegations that Joe Biden, when he was VP, threatened to withhold payment of a billion-dollar debt unless Ukraine fired top prosecutor Viktor Shokin:

“I wasn’t trying to get dirty information on Biden. Biden was in our way.”

Guiliani had with him an affidavit, in fact, in which Viktor confirmed he was pressured to resign because he wouldn’t drop a case against Burisma Holdings — the energy company on whose board Joe’s son, Hunter, was a member.

The statement specifically mentions Biden and the billion dollars.

Rudy also accused Hunter Biden of taking payment from China in order to curry favor from his dad.

Sound vaguely familiar? It does to Rudy:

“The pattern is a pattern of pay for play. It includes something very similar to what happened to the Clinton Foundation. Which goes to the very core of what did Obama know, and when did he know it?”

Additionally, he referenced a NYT piece from 2015 about the Hunter-Burisma-Ukraine connection:

“The question is when Biden and Obama saw that article, about how the son was pulling down money from the most crooked oligarch in Russia, did Obama call Biden in and say ‘Joe, how could you be doing this?’”

Not exactly a help to Joe’s anti-corruption message.

Furthermore, in response to a recent story that Rudy worked with attorneys Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova on digging up dirt on Biden, he claimed there was no such team-up, and the intel “was handed to [him] by the Ukranians.”

It’s a turbulent time, and impeachment is a-comin’ — maybe.

Would Giuliani testify if he was subpoenaed by the House?

That’d depend on the opinion of the man for whom he’s working:

“I’m his attorney, there’s something called attorney-client privilege. That has to be considered even if they don’t think he should have attorney-client privilege.”

As for calling for Ukraine to investigate Biden, Rudy created quite the ruckus just days ago when he gave a bit of a confusing answer to Don Lemon (see more here):

I have a feeling we’re slipping into madness.

Many times, I’ve theorized the Russia collusion investigation will never, ever end. Evidence of that crusade will be found drawn within caves by a future civilization on the other side of our destruction by cow farts, to be resurrected as a plague on those poor intergalactic saps. But now I’m thinking it’s transforming.

Russia is now Ukraine. What once was 2016 is 2020. And old is new and the never-ending saga of “Please, anybody — just anybody — invalidate this guy” — will be the screed written across the suckered faces of a generation forced to forever hear — and, sadly, write about — the great lunge without a landing.

Oy.

Al Gore Wins Big! The Global Warming Warrior Earns a Coveted ‘Climate Hypocrite Award’

Kudos to Al Gore on his recent win.

The man behind the documentary An Inconvenient Truth — and possibly the internet upon which I write this — just snagged the coveted Climate Hypocrite Award by Republican Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe.

Runner-up was Alexandria Ocaio-Cortez, cowfart fighter of the Green New Deal fame.

Here’s what Jim had to say about that:

“Today’s award goes to proud socialist and Democrat standard-bearer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is well known for bad ideas but also for climate hypocrisy. Despite claiming, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,’ she doesn’t seem to have any problem frequently utilizing rideshare apps or airfare over ‘eco-friendly’ public transit and walking. Her radical Green New Deal would put countless Americans out of work — it would end America as we know it — but AOC doesn’t think twice about living lavishly in her luxury apartment building, taking a car one mile to work, and believing her $174,000 taxpayer-funded salary should be higher.”

Nice.

And now for Numero Uno, who’s no stranger to living dangerously — in 2007, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research revealed the great global warming activist lived such an extreme lifestyle that the utility bills for his Belle Meade mansion totaled $30,000 per year.

A similar exposé was delivered by a Nashville newspaper a few years before that.

And in 2010, the Gores added another house to their collection, in Montecito, California.

As reported by World Property Journal:

The couple spent $8,875,000 on a gated ocean-view villa on 1 1/2 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, according to real estate sources familiar with the deal. The Italian-style house has high ceilings with beams in the public rooms, a family room, a wine cellar, terraces, six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms in more than 6,500 square feet of living space. … The 93108 ZIP Code, which includes the coastal hamlet, was ranked as America’s seventh most expensive area last year by Forbes.

Here’s how Rep. Inhofe presented the award:

In powering his home, Gore still greatly outpaces most Americans in energy consumption. The findings were shocking:
• The past year, Gore’s home energy use averaged 19,241 kilowatt hours (kWh) every month, compared to the U.S. household average of 901 kWh per month.
• Gore guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years.
• In September of 2016, Gore’s home consumed 30,993 kWh in just one month – as much energy as a typical American family burns in 34 months.
• During the last 12 months, Gore devoured 66,159 kWh of electricity just heating his pool. That is enough energy to power six average U.S. households for a year.
• From August 2016 through July 2017, Gore spent almost $22,000 on electricity bills.
• Gore paid an estimated $60,000 to install 33 solar panels. Those solar panels produce an average of 1,092 kWh per month, only 5.7% of Gore’s typical monthly energy consumption.

Congratulations on a trophy well-won.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis listens to a question about Russia from the media at the Pentagon, Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, in Washington. Senior American and Russian military leaders met for an unprecedented, face-to-face session somewhere in the Middle East this week to discuss the growing tensions in the competing battles to retake one of the remaining Islamic State strongholds in Syria.

There are few “journalists” who have become more partisan and insufferable in the Trump era than Soledad O’Brien.

You may remember her from various programs on NBC and MSNBC. After 2013, her career started to fall off and she now hosts some show I’ve never heard of. I’m sure it’s super important though. One of O’Brien’s shticks now is to go on Twitter and make snarky, outrageous comments toward anyone she sees as an enemy of the left.

Enter James Mattis, who was cancelled earlier this month because he refused to break his personal rule of verbally bashing presidents still in power. Instead of trashing Trump, his memoir spent a sizable amount of times pointing out what a dumpster fire Barack Obama’s foreign policy was, complete with his experience-free pajama boys running around bossing generals around.

Naturally, that made the media and left really mad.

Apparently, some still aren’t over it though, including The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin (who a rabidly delusional leftist labeled as a “conservative).

Yes, I’m sure the guy who’s been in multiple wars and has served his country for decades with valor is a coward. Good take there. If only he were a journalist mouthing off on Twitter, then he could really claim true bravery.

Honestly, this kind of disrespect is just disgusting. You don’t have to like Mattis, but you should dang sure respect what he’s done. He doesn’t criticize sitting presidents because he places the country above his personal gain (i.e. cashing in on a tell all book). That’s not cowardice. It’s courage in the face of a media complex that constantly demands blood.

O’Brien is nothing but a clown.

MSNBC Political Strategist Explains Why People Support Macho Man Bernie: Sexism

Racism used to mean “Judging someone solely according to their skin color.”

Now it seems to simply mean “Anything involving race.”

Is the same happening with sexism?

On Monday, Democratic strategist Emily Tisch Sussman sprung onto MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin to let everyone know why folks — Democrats, mind you — could prefer Bernie Sanders over Elizabeth Warren.

In case you’re wondering, it’s not because they believe Warren can’t beat Trump; it isn’t due to the notion that Bernie has superior policy positions; and it sure ain’t discrimination against an American Indian (here).

Lo, the reason people will pull the lever for the man who had the balls to call Baltimore “a Third World country”…is because of that very anatomical possession.

Presently, a poll shows Elizabeth on top of the Democratic heap (here).

Emily explained that people are just lovin’ anybody who can take out that terrible guy in the White House:

“I think that it shows that there’s a steady incline…what people care about is they want to know who can defeat Trump. That is the most important thing to them. And so, the people in Iowa are – they’re doing their retail politics; they’re seeing all of them speak. People really are showing up at these big events to see different candidates, to see if any of them appeal to them, any of them resonate – but ultimately [at the end of the] day, people in Iowa are looking at the same polls that people all over the rest of the country are looking at, and they want to know if anybody pops. So I think that Warren has had a slow increase, but we’ve also seen other candidates have a slow increase.”

She noted the competition on the Democratic side’s tough this time around.

Yet, the former campaign advisor believes some people still stickin’ to America’s rich Uncle Bernie are just doing so because he’s not a woman.

Craig asked, “Has [Bernie] peaked?”

Take it way, Emily:

“It does feel that way. It feels like Warren is pulling together a coalition of people, particularly women and also people of color, who liked Hillary Clinton. I think in all of our talking…we act like there’s nobody who actually liked her. There are, in fact, people that liked her. And so, she is in many ways pulling a lot of that support, but also pulling a lot from Sanders, and Sanders is still in the race. What we’re seeing of his supporters is there’s a ceiling, there is nowhere to go, there is no up to go, and all of those who – I actually overheard someone saying [what] I thought was an interesting point, that basically, at this point, if you are still supporting Sanders as opposed to Warren, it’s kind of showing your sexism because she has more detailed plans, and her plans have evolved. I thought that was an interesting point, and I think there may be something to it.”

Among Democratic voters, is Bernie so macho, people just can’t let go? Or is it that any old dude is better than a dadgum female?

You may not want to mistake Emily for someone with their pulse on America — apparently due to a powerful bubble, “every one [she] know[s]” supports Elizabeth Warren:

Do “more detailed plans” and “evolved” plans equal a better candidate?

Sounds iffy.

But either way — as I’ve written previously — Elizabeth can in no way beat Donald Trump:

[A]s surely many would agree, Donald Trump against the mild-mannered Democrat in a no-holds-barred debate will be like Dracula fighting a mosquito — they may both technically be out for blood, but one will just step on the other.

That’s not sexism; it’s just the reality of a monstrous competitor vs something less beasty.

He’ll eat her detailed, evolved lunch. Real macho-like.

Anti-Trumper Chris Wallace Tells on Giuliani; Mark Levin Wonders (Loudly) Why Biden is Above the Law

Westlake Legal Group mark-levin-620x349 Anti-Trumper Chris Wallace Tells on Giuliani; Mark Levin Wonders (Loudly) Why Biden is Above the Law Victoria Toensing Ukraine Rudy Giuliani President Trump Joe diGenova Front Page Stories Featured Story Ed Henry democrats corruption Congress collusion Chris Wallace biden Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

 

Fox News‘ Chris Wallace’s anti-Trump bias was on full display on Sunday as he reported that former U.S. attorney Joe DiGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing, have been working with Giuliani to dig up opposition research on Joe Biden. Wallace’s contempt for President Trump, Giuliani, DiGenova and Toensing was unmistakable as he spoke. One can easily imagine Wallace as the schoolyard snitch in his younger days. Anyway, he said:

We have new information to report. Fox News has learned that President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, was not acting alone in trying to get dirt from Ukrainian officials on 2020 rival Joe Biden. Two high profile Washington lawyers, Joe DiGenova, who’s been a fierce critic of the Democratic investigation, and his wife, Victoria Toensing, were working with Giuliani to get oppo research on Biden. According to a top U.S. official, all three were working off the books apart from the administration. The only person who knows what they were doing is President Trump. Fox News has also learned the Pentagon, the State Department, and the National Security Counsel were unanimous in supporting military aid to Ukraine. President Trump decided to withhold that aid this summer on his own.

 

That’s quite a story Chris. Why is it wrong for Trump’s lawyers to investigate “Quid Pro” Joe Biden and his son Hunter? Why does Chris Wallace and the rest of the establishment media continue protect them? Do they find it appropriate for a U.S. Vice President to leverage U.S. aid for personal reasons? Do they believe it was advisable for Hunter to profit off of his father’s position? The Bidens aren’t the victims in this story.

My favorite commentator, the fabulous Mark Levin, weighed in on Wallace’s report. Here’s what he had to say:

You haven’t once asked for the identity of the whistleblower. Why is that?…If this CIA operative is going to be the one who brings down my President, I want to know all about him. I want to know what kind of dogs they have, how many marriages they’ve had, if they have a DUI, I want to know if they’re a partisan. I want to know everything, like they do with everybody else, the media. This guy should be cross-examined. What kind of a situation is this, we’re going to bring down a President of the United States and the Democrats are telling us we can’t identify this guy because his life might be in danger?

Everybody swings around this memo, like it’s the Bible. I have a lot of questions about this memo. I don’t need press people interpreting it for me. I can read it myself. I want to question this person about his memo.

Why is it that the CIA changed its whistleblower policy in August, when this letter is dated August 12th? Under the former policy before August, he’s not a whistleblower. This isn’t a whistleblower complaint and nothing sent to the United States Congress. How does it happen like this?

Ed Henry asks, “What happened in the Oval Office on that call? Was it illegal or not?

Levin responds:

Well, we know it’s not illegal. What crime was violated? Can you name one?…It’s not illegal. The President didn’t do anything illegal. The question is whether Biden did something illegal.

The President didn’t do anything illegal. You know how I know? Because Nancy Pelosi’s been on every talk show and she can’t site one section in the United States code where it’s illegal.

My question is: Why is Joe Biden above the law?

Why indeed?
