When Ukrainians voted to elect comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy as their next president in the spring of 2019, the fledgling administration was eager to coordinate a phone call with Kyiv’s most important benefactor -- the United States, according to an adviser to Zelenskiy. But after weeks of discussions with American officials, Ukrainian officials came to recognize a precondition to any executive correspondence, the adviser said."It was clear that [President Donald] Trump will only have communications if they will discuss the Biden case," said Serhiy Leshchenko an anti-corruption advocate and former member of Ukraine's Parliament, who now acts as an adviser to Zelenskiy.

This is totally at odds with statements made by Rudy, the State Dept, and Trump. In other words, FAKE

Totally at odds with what named Ukranian figures have stated on the record. More Liberal hogwash.

From the transcript it was clear that Zelensky the newly elected populist was as concerned with the circumstances of the firing of the prosecutor as Trump was. Both of them disputed the MSM narrative that he was the corrupt party and considered him a good man. This may have been related to their suspicion and dislike for the US ambassador that served under Obama and was opposed to Zelensky who was seen as a threat that could expose the cozy scheme the DNC and GPS Fusion had with Ukrainian sources of dirt on Trump. Trump as President has the absolute duty to gather information from foreign sources on potentially corrupt US officials because he's head of the Executive Branch in charge of law enforcement. The context of the meeting was not about investigating Biden but about advancing the investigation the AG Barr was running to find out what Ukrainian sources were part of the DNC efforts in 2016 to illegally get opposition research on Trump with campaign money laundered through a shell law firm.

It's easy to find people willing to tell a reporter what he wants to hear, while remaining anonymous of course.

So withholding a phone call (if that happened or ever does happen) is treason per ABC. And punishable by death per drunk Bill Weld. All I know is Trump, sadly, has already lavished Ukraine with lethal weapons even Obama wouldn't send them.

If it comes down to testimony... I'm pretty sure Zelensky will testify on Trump's behalf. So.... put it where the sun don't shine, guys.

President Donald Trump attended Sunday’s Game 5 of the World Series at Nationals Park, but he wasn’t the recipient of a warm welcome. Not even close. Trump, who did not arrive in time for the national anthem or first pitch, was shown on the videoboard ahead of the fourth inning during a Salute to Veterans in-game segment. The crowd immediately responded by booing Trump loudly. After initially boing Trump, the crowd continued into a “lock him up” chant. Trump is the subject of an impeachment inquiry by the House of Representatives.

Satellite photos indicate North Korea is building a ballistic missile submarine and may be making preparations to test a submarine-launched missile, according to an analysis of the commercial images by experts at a Washington-based think tank. The photos of Sinpo South Shipyard taken Monday appear to confirm reports by North Korean state media of a “newly built submarine” inspected by the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un, in July, according to Joseph Bermudez and Victor Cha of Beyond Parallel, a research project funded by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

The liberal media were so enamored with President Obama when he gave the order that ultimately resulted in the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden; to the point of almost treating it as though he was the one to pull the actual trigger. But with news breaking late Saturday night that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi met the same fate, the Sunday morning newscasts were awash with anti-Trump journalists whining about President Trump using it a victory for his Middle East policies.

An NCAA runner who was born a male, has just been named female athlete of the week by a college athletic conference. June Eastwood, a biologically male athlete and runner at the University of Montana, was named cross-country female athlete of the week by the Big Sky Conference. “June Eastwood finished second in a field of 204 runners at the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational at Baylands Park in Sunnyvale, Calif.,” the conference said in an official statement. Eastwood is allowed to compete as a female because of an NCAA policy that permits transgender women (biological males) to compete as women after they’ve taken testosterone suppressors for one year.

President Trump said Sunday morning that he did not tell House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about the U.S. military raid in Syria that resulted in the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi because he was worried about leaks that could have compromised the mission. Vice President Mike Pence said this was not an indication of a lack of trust.When asked if he notified Pelosi beforehand, Trump said he did not because he did not want any members of the U.S. forces to die.

On Sunday’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace pressed Vice President Mike Pence on why President Donald Trump did not notify House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in advance about the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Wallace said, “The president was asked specifically whether he had informed the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi about this raid last night, and he said no and then he added I wanted to make sure that no American forces were lost. The implication seeming to be that he was worried that Pelosi or members of Congress would leak this. Does the president not trust the Speaker of the House

Before President Donald Trump's press conference on Sunday confirming the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi, former National Intelligence Director James Clapper appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" to discuss what he was hoping to hear the president say. One of the biggest things Clapper was interested in was seeing "the contributions the intelligence community made" that lead to al-Baghdadi's death. He admitted "taking down" al-Baghdadi has "huge symbolic meaning," especially because he has been a target for quite some time.

The quip among Jewish Republicans about President Obama’s trafficking with anti-Semites was that he was so popular with American Jews that had he nuked Tel Aviv, he would have lost no more than 30% of the Jewish vote. The affinity for American Jews for the Democrat Party has long been a political curiosity. The distinguished essayist Milton Himmelfarb observed that in America, Jews had attained the socioeconomic status of Episcopalians, but for some reason they continued to vote like Puerto Ricans. Nothing seems to dissolve the sinew that ties Jews to the Democrats. President Obama’s association with the anti-Semitic Rev. Jeremiah Wright brought a collective yawn.

An estimated 6,000 women and girls in Ireland have had their genitals mutilated, and experts warn that another 3,000 girls are currently at risk of being subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM). At a conference in Dublin, activists gathered to decry the practice of FGM and called for a national plan of action. The Journal reports that Senator Ivana Bacik, who helped craft Ireland’s anti-FGM legislation, said that the practices should be treated as “a serious form of child abuse”. FGM, sometimes referred to as “cutting”, is a cultural practice in which some or all of a pre-pubescent girl’s external genitalia is removed. The World Health Organization (WHO)
