Why Schiff's whistleblower claims
at Trump impeachment
hearing are impossible to believe

Americans had a front-row seat for Day One of impeachment inquiry hearings in the House on Wednesday. But missing from the testimony on Capitol Hill was the “witness” who started it all. Six grueling hours of testimony by two hearsay witnesses shed little light on the allegations against President Trump. Neither George Kent, deputy assistant secretary of state for Europe nor William Taylor, the charge d’affaires in Kiev had firsthand information and both clearly had an ax to grind over their differences with the president on foreign policy. More interesting than their testimony was the complete whitewashing of any reference to the original whistleblower, whose second-hand allegations so deeply concerned

It was perfectly clear that these two clowns were not interested in truth, They were disgruntled losers who had a bone to pick with Trump over his foreign policies. They were hired to take care of our interests in Ukraine. It turned out that they were more concerned with the interests of Ukraine than with USA policies. I'd say that the Schiff hit the fan in presenting these two as the final nails in Trumps coffin. Nancy Pelosi can bring this crap to an end in five minutes. Wake up Nancy.....you people are splitting this country apart with your continuance with this farce.!!

Turtle Boy McConnell could shut this farce down today by publishing a long list of people he intends to subpoena when this pile of Schiff lands in the Senate for trial....with each passing day I’m more and more convinced that Piglosi doesn’t want any of this to get anywhere near the Senate.

Why Elizabeth Warren's new
two-step healthcare proposal

Posted by MissMolly 11/16/2019 5:15:49 AM Post Reply
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been stalling in polls, announced a two-step plan Friday aimed at escaping from the healthcare trap she has gotten herself in. But in reality, the new proposal is likely to blow up in her face. To this point in her presidential campaign, Warren has allied with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont to stake out an extreme position by insisting that anything short of a $34 trillion overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system, which would require kicking 180 million people off of private insurance, was insufficient. In doing so, she has railed against plans from other candidates, including former Vice President Joe Biden

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, amid the largely laughable testimony of the diplomats — can you say heavy on the hearsay, guys? — came out with her own largely laughable conclusion of all that hearsay testimony and said: President Donald Trump is guilty of bribery. She even found him guilty of confessing to bribery. Who knew Pelosi, at her advanced age, could perform so many contortions? This has to be the greatest acrobatic spin in political history. “The bribe,” she said, in a widely reported news conference on the heels of the first public impeachment hearing, “is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement

Several black leaders in South Carolina who were listed as supporters of the Buttigieg campaign’s “Douglass Plan” distanced themselves from the proposal and the campaign when pressed for comment, saying that the campaign was “intentionally vague” in asking for their endorsements. According to a report from The Intercept, three South Carolina black leaders — Columbia City Councilwoman Tameika Devine, Rehoboth Baptist pastor and state Representative Ivory Thigpen, and Johnnie Cordero, chair of the state party’s Black Caucus — all expressed misgivings over the way that the Buttigieg campaign featured their names prominently in an open letter published in the the HBCU Times touting the plan’s details. “We are over 400 South Carolinians,

During the second half of questioning at Friday's impeachment inquiry hearing on Capitol Hill, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff shut down questioning of former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch from Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. Schiff did so after Ranking Member Devin Nunes yielded his time to Stefanik. "The gentlewoman will suspend," Schiff asked. "What is the interruption for this time?" Stefanik asked. "This is the fifth time you've interrupted duly elected members of Congress." "You're gagging the gentle lady from New York?" Nunes asked

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar wants you to think her struggles to gain momentum in her presidential bid are due to her sex — and the bias of the American public. The Democrat took a swipe at fellow White House contender Pete Buttigieg, who leads her, by saying the South Bend mayor likely wouldn’t have garnered the support he has — given his light resume (in her opinion) — if he were a woman. Last weekend, Klobuchar doubled down on her thesis in an interview with CNN. “I’m focusing here on my fellow women senators — Senator Harris, Senator Warren and myself,” Klobuchar said.

When your two marquee witnesses concede that they did not actually witness anything, the words “But I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night” normally follow. William Taylor and George Kent did not reveal their hotel accommodations to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday but one can safely rule out the Mayflower, Trump International, and the Washington Hilton. The Holiday Inn Express in Silver Spring seems a good bet — but that’s just speculation. Speculation, based on hearsay, passed for fact-based testimony on Capitol Hill this week. “I’m here to tell you what I know,” Taylor informed in his baritone, God voice.

LASIK eye surgery needs to stop,
former FDA adviser says: Report

Even though LASIK has been around for 20 years in the U.S., one former FDA adviser has said the procedure should be taken off the market. Dr. Morris Waxler originally voted to approve the eye surgery, but he’s changed his mind. "Essentially we ignored the data on vision distortions that persisted for years," the retired FDA adviser told CBS News. "I re-examined the documentation … and I said, 'Wow this is not good,'" he added. LASIK surgery uses a special laser to reshape the cornea to improve the eye’s “focusing power,” according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The House Ethics Committee revealed on Thursday that it is investigating Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) over whether his relationship with a member of his staff breaks House rules. Hastings has admitted to being in a relationship with his aide, Patricia Williams, who serves as his deputy district director. The committee is now investigating whether Hastings violated House rules with that relationship and if he received any improper gifts from that employee. The House last year adopted a rule preventing members of Congress from having a sexual relationship with a member of their staff.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch compared herself to the diplomats and contractors killed in Benghazi in her opening statement in the second public impeachment inquiry on Friday. “We make a difference everyday,” she said in a defense of herself and diplomats serving around the world. She continued: We are people who repeatedly uproot our lives, who risk and sometimes give our lives for this country. We are the 52 Americans, who, 40 years ago this month, began 444 days of deprivation, torture, and captivity in Tehran. We are the dozens of Americans stationed at our embassies in Cuba

On Thursday night, the underdog Cleveland Browns met the Pittsburgh Steelers. And the Browns showed up, beating the Steelers 21-7 in a pretty decisive victory. That wouldn’t be big news, normally. But at the end of the game, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett got into an altercation unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my decades of watching football. (snip) Where this became far different and more dangerous than your typical football scuffle is that, during the entanglement, Myles Garrett actually reared back and attempted to windmill-tomahawk slam the helmet he was holding on top of Mason Rudolph’s exposed skull with furious gusto.

Sanders, a senator from Vermont, said this in a joint interview with Ocasio-Cortez last week to ABC News, adding that the Bronx-Queens freshman congresswoman has ideas that “are resonating all over this country,” and: “If I am in the White House, she will play a very, very important role. No question.” “I don’t want you to hear this, because your head will explode,” Sanders said in jest to Ocasio-Cortez, before adding, “I don’t know of any person … who has had

During a visit to Britain this week, Hillary Clinton explained why she and daughter Chelsea chose not to include Margaret Thatcher in their new book featuring “gutsy women” – and why the teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg did make the cut. In Clinton’s view Britain’s first prime minister did not do enough to knock down “barriers for others.” The former Democratic presidential nominee did give a nod to Thatcher’s willingness to change the way she dressed, spoke and wore her hair, alluding to one of the most dramatic makeovers in 20th century politics.

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

Of course, presidents appoint ambassadors, but people don’t insult people, especially when they’re giving testimony before the Congress of the United States.”Host Margaret Brennan asked Pelosi about the debate over whether Trump

TAMPA — From the moment the NFL announced its hasty plan for a Colin Kaepernick workout this weekend, the questions have been flying. After all this time, why the sudden rush? Did some team request this? How many general managers will show up? Is this simply a ploy for atonement by the NFL? Yet, around here, a more important question needs to be asked: Can Kaepernick help the Buccaneers? It’s an interesting and legitimate question with, at this point, no clear answer. Kaepernick has not been in an NFL uniform in nearly three years so it’s worth wondering if his skills have atrophied.
