Nancy Pelosi goes for slam dunk --
and crashes to court

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 11/16/2019 5:07:00 AM

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

The whole military assistance thing needs to be examined big time. Ukraine has its own defense industry. It supplied modern (by Russian standards) combat systems to the FSUs after the breakup of the USSR and even were supplying African countries. Why would withholding a shipment of US Javelins be a critical matter, but more importantly, why do the deal in the first place? Was this a deal to get US technology compromised? Inquiring minds want to know.

With the democrats it is always about the vocabulary. That is why you have to watch the words they use carefully. They use it effectively but people are finally beginning to see through this Thesaurus garbage. You see how the word "progressive" makes you feel good because you think it is linked to "progress", when it in fact is an attempt to take up back to the good old days of the Soviet Union and the communism they represented. "Socialism" makes you think it is a social contract, in fact it is a contract where you work for the government and bureaucrats decide how much you actually get back. Their infinite wisdom decide the means and methods of production and distribution. If you work harder it doesn't matter you cannot get ahead unless of course you know someone at the "Bureau" or the "Polit Bureau" so to speak. The Ministry of Truth will tell you lies and the Ministry of Love will dole out the punishment. Vocabulary is everything which is why we as a free people need to hold onto the meaning of words. Racist, bigot, misogynist, etc. these are words that actually have meaning but the democrats like to toss them into a pot of slurs to try to destroy this President and his supporters. Well time we stood up and demanded they explain what their meanings are. Because they sure don't fit either him or us.

Watching her destroy her own party and her own political legacy has been so painful to watch. It is always painful watching somebody rush to their own destruction like she seems to be doing. My problem with her is, she seems to not mind taking the country along with her on her demented ride. She is standing on the nation's last nerve of patience, and there will be a response. I promise she will not like it either. It is up to us folks. Burn up the lines to DC now, and the ballot boxes starting in the primaries next year.

The article and #8 response make a good point. Many people are unaware of the damage that language can cause and continuously fall into the trap. My own small town, saddled with a very liberal government across the board, created a citizens' group to counter our TEA Party efforts and named it "People for Progress." They succeeded in driving out every third business and many citizens due to maximum unsustainable taxation and built many things that a small town can not afford, such as multiple parks, new school buildings, sports complexes and swimming pools. Even the "rich" moved out when their businesses began to slow down. The town is now lifeless and in incredible debt. That's what "progress" means.

The Democrats actually conducted focus groups to see which term quid pro quo, extortion or bribery sounded worse to them and the focus groups found "bribery" to be the most damning which is why Pelosi and others are now going with the term "bribery" The quite literally polled people to see what lie was the most acceptable and egregious toward Trump!

#9 Agree. Why can't these useless idiots in Washington see and hear what is so obvious? The answer is because they live in a insulated bubble surrounding themselves with other useless idiots cheering each other on. The same with the media. They give each other moral support and strength with their flagrant lies and opinions and totally ignore the truth. They don't acknowledge anything that goes against their concocted fake narrative and talking points. They live in a world full of anger and hate. I've often wondered if the CNN and MSNBC mob receive a bonus in their paycheck each time they bash the principles of our constitution by following the script laid out to them and lie to the American people. You'll notice when they say something that's anti Trump or anti truth, they never look into the camera to the American people but look at each other. It's not America First to them or to Nancy Pelosi. Her reputation and legacy has been totally trashed thanks to her partnership with that psycho clown Schiff. Last night, I listened to a You Tube Mark Levin Podcast. He does a great impression of Nancy Pelosi.

Do any of the worthless oxygen wasters in Washington know the context for bribery being included in the Constitution under impeachable offenses? It refers to the acceptance of bribes by the President from foreign powers thereby indebting himself to said foreign powers to the detriment of the interests of United States. All these DC dipsticks have it exactly ass-backwards. Which, considering that most of them suffer from cranial rectal inversion, is not surprising.

What galls me is the mostly silence from the Republicans. Follow the bouncing ball on what crime the Dems are pursuing next. They still don’t have a crime pinned down. You don’t like that our President is breathing? Negotiating? Freeing our soldiers who were tried in a mil court? For a BOOMING economy? For negotiated peace or cease fire in Syria, Turkey? Sanctions on China that are bringing in more money that we’ve had in ages for our farmers, manufacturers? For the removing onerous EPA regulations that thwarted economic growth? For his tweets, which are the only way we get unfiltered truth? For his love for Americans and America? For his desire to end the divisiveness in our country? For his audacity to speak the truth? It wasn’t collusion, and apparently, wasn’t a quid pro quo, so now after secret meetings chaired by the pencil-necked geek, and two days of “testimony” from three people who either weren’t there when the famous phone call was made, nor did they prep the President for the call were fired before it all happened, but they heard what they testified to by numerous people who could, may, probably, didn’t know exactly...we are now on to bribery. From whom exactly did the President receive money? Looks like Joe Biden for his kid in two instances and we have him admitting on tape how he obstructed justice in the Ukraine. Hillary Clinton under the guise of her foundation. How much money has flowed into Dem campaigns and coffers (SanFranNan) from cartel money and into obama’s campaign where no foreign money is allowed? Follow the money, Republicans! Stop being nice!!!

amid the largely laughable testimony of the diplomats While the diplomats' testimony may be largely laughable; when the commentators and analysts in the mainstream media treat it as absolutely serious, then their loyal audiences are likely to believe it to be serious, credible, and relevant -- even if it is none of those things. It is the media's willful and cavalier distortion of the truth that frustrates me most and leaves me most hopeless about the future of liberty and justice in this country (let alone in the world at-large).

So it’s ok for Pelosi to prejudge Trump, but Trump can’t defend himself with a tweet or have a lawyer to represent him. Pelosi is good at closed door meetings after all you have to pass it to know what’s in it.

Hong Kong elections: Tsunami
of disaffection washes over city

Posted by MissMolly 11/25/2019 5:20:09 AM Post Reply
The anti-establishment reverberations from almost six months of street protests swept through polling stations across Hong Kong on Sunday, as voters in record numbers roundly rejected pro-Beijing candidates in favor of pan-democrats. The tsunami of disaffection among voters was clear across the board, as pan-democrats rode the wave to win big in poor and rich neighborhoods, in both protest-prone and non protest-afflicted districts and, in downtown areas as well as the suburbs. Less immediately obvious was whether there was a generational divide in the way the people voted, but ousted pro-establishment district councilors suggested that young, first-time voters had been instrumental in dislodging them from their perch.

What began as a good week for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ended in his indictment for corruption. It is the first time that a sitting Israeli PM has been indicted. Early in the week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that America would no longer agree to the 2016 UN Security Council resolution (No. 2334) that said the Israeli settlements in the West Bank area were a flagrant violation of international law. That determination was utter nonsense. With the exception of the Geneva Conventions on the law of war, “international law” — especially as the UN uses that term — is nothing but politics.

’ll take the opportunity up front to double down on this post from Friday. I’d bet my life savings plus several internal organs that Pelosi will have 218 to impeach. That’s based on the simple reality that failing to do so at this point would cost Democrats more politically than proceeding with impeachment would. Voters who hate Trump would be furious and voters who like Trump wouldn’t give Pelosi and Schiff an ounce of credit for standing down in the end. The president would gloat about it every day unto eternity. Pelosi, long respected by both sides for her ability to whip votes, would be humiliated utterly.

Every year as the end of November draws near, New York City prepares for its annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a holiday staple since 1924. For 2.5 miles and roughly three hours, colorful balloons, floats and performers dazzle crowds as they march through Manhattan, beginning at 77th Street and Central Park West and meandering through the city before ending at Macy’s landmark store in Herald Square. According to The Smart Shopper's 2016 report, the average total cost to hold the parade itself is $10.4 million to $12.3 million, with costumes alone coming to about $2 million and property taxes amounting to another $138,573.

Shrinking violets don’t become presidential contenders. Still, even at the highest level of overweening ambition, Elizabeth Warren stands out. She has clawed her way to the top by hook and by crook. One of her favorite techniques is the bald-faced lie. As an academic, she is best known for an article claiming that medical crises are largely responsible for personal bankruptcies. Warren’s article has been used (as she no doubt intended) to promote socialized medicine, but it has been thoroughly debunked. See Gail Heriot’s analysis in the Texas Review of Law & Politics, embedded below. Warren’s deeply flawed, if not outright deceptive, article on “medical” bankruptcies largely made her academic career.

Mr. Macron had also been the sole leader to veto the start of lengthy membership talks for North Macedonia to join the European Union, despite Skopje’s having done everything Brussels had asked of it, including changing the country’s name.

An earlier essay on today’s dueling accusations of government-sponsored opposition research described past examples of the practice, including how members of the Watergate Special Prosecution Force (WSPF) had assembled investigatory files on all potential GOP presidential candidates going into the 1976 election: John Connally, Gerald Ford, Nelson Rockefeller, Robert Dole, and even Ronald Reagan. I concluded by asking if such abuse of process stretched back even further. Today’s essay answers that question by citing a multitude of examples from the 1960s, each lovingly documented by FBI testimony before the Church Committee. Some background on the Church Committee is in order.

Impeachment Is Destroying Democrats 29 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 11/24/2019 4:15:42 AM Post Reply
The goal of the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other Democratic Party leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives has been to use the impeachment inquiry to destroy President Donald Trump. They hope to impeach him, followed by conviction and removal from the U.S. Senate. Otherwise, they believe he will be so politically damaged that he will resign before the next election. Ironically, the exact opposite political result is occurring. The past two weeks, the nation was subjected to partisan impeachment hearings orchestrated by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). The process has been unfair to not only House Republicans but also to the target of their investigation, President Trump.
