The silly sanctification
of Marie Yovanovitch

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 11/16/2019 6:29:12 AM

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.

No one knows why she was "testifying." She had zero contact with any parties of the "Ukraine phone call" that was so pivotal to this "inquiry." Why was she there? To complain about being fired? Get over it and put your big girl panties on, woman.

They are trying to overturn a national election based on how a corrupt, inept, insubordinate bureaucrat 'feels'? We sent Trump to Washington to drain the swamp. Firing of people like Yovanovtch is exactly what that looks like.

FEELINGS???? Who gives a crap about her FEELINGS? She's an inept liar and deserved to be fired. You know, like how the Messiah fired dozens of Ambassadors on his first day on job.

If your witness did not witness anything, was not even employed during the events that are being investigated, is she really a witness? Why was she even there? To allege a smear campaign 'without evidence".

She reminded me of Christine Blasey Ford yesterday. Small little voice, very prim and proper and definitely had a very high opinion of herself. She was there because she felt she had been slighted by the President and this was her way to get back at him recalling her. I believe John Solomon when he said she gave him a " do not prosecute" list". Trump should have fired her, not re-assigned her! But then, that's just my humble opinion!

As someone said at hearing yesterday (believe it was Jim Jordan), she should be going to Human Relations with her "grievances", not yesterday's hearing where she had no real input. This whole things is so contrived. (I believe I heard that they audition first in closed basement hearing room, and if they make the cut, then they can appear in the public hearing.) That is hearsay, I know, but I think that hearsay is o.k. now.

Marie is just another government swamp rat sucking taxpayers dry. She's one of those who can't prosper in business, so they make government "service" a career, and we're supposed to praise them and thank them for their service? Give me a break! There should be no such thing as career government workers or politicians. The State Department life overseas is too cushy. Even the lowest diplomat lives quite well. They live better and have better benefits than our military members too. Republicans disappointed me yesterday, when each one of them made it a point to thank her for her service. Why does our side fall for the leftists' trap of can't be mean to a woman? It didn't need to be said. All they had to do was go straight into questioning her. Notice, they got no credit for being nice to her. Instead, the leftists are using her vaunted "service" (for which all Republicans agree) to make the case that she was somehow wronged by evil Trump, so he deserves impeachment; and, that was their goal all along.

Schiff was hoping that people would get mad at President Trump for ''being mean to the girl.'' It was an attempt to make suburban women angry at the President, as well as casting doubt on his actions. Guess what? It blew up in Schiff and Pelosi's face! Marie came across as the anti-Trump person she is. She admitted that the President has the right to recall an ambassador any time they please, but it hurt her feelings. She is not ambassador material, in spite of the gushing and fawning by the democrats! The other thing is, when the president and minister of a foreign country complains about an ambassador and is unhappy with him/her, it is advisable for the President to replace that ambassador. Marie made her own bed by trashing President Trump to Ukrainians, as well as angering that country's leaders by interfering in their business. Shed no tears for Marie Yovanovitch!

I just read the reporting on this in the New York Post. It said she was shocked at how she was treated. Welcome to the real world honey, the only thing missing from her testimony was "DO you know WHO I AM?" That would have been the response I would expect from this narcissistic woman who thinks her job is somehow to tell the President how to handle his foreign relations. Perhaps she should read the Constitution, you know the paper that spells out it is the Presidents job to handle that not some low level bureaucrat who never was elected to anything.

This lady, who clearly had her feelings hurt after she was recalled as the ambassador to Ukraine and reassigned to a comparable career civil service position in the State Department is the person that the Obama Administration essentially sent to defend Ukraine from Russia. It is the current elected President with the consent of the US Senate who has the Constitutional authority to appoint all US Ambassadors who also has the authority to replace all Ambassadors appointed by himself or former Presidents if he loses confidence in their ability to carry out his foreign policy initiatives or for no stated reason. The Democrats, who currently control the House of Representatives where they are conducting a partisan impeachment inquisition have no authority to interfere with a President’s ability to appoint or remove Ambassadors. Clearly the Democrats were getting down into the emotional personality weeds as they questioned this lady who claimed to have no firsthand knowledge of what the President was thinking when he decided to recall and reassign her from Ukraine back to a State Department position in Ukraine. She also testified that she had no knowledge that Trump violated any US law. Remember after Barack Obama was elected he replaced all US Ambassadors who were appointed by prior Presidents and it was deemed within his constitutional prerogative to do so.

They really don't have anything. The media circus surrounding this is not only insulting, it is just another huge WASTE OF TIME, with ZERO substance. This entire purpose of this "dog and pony show" is to provide cover for REAL investigation into the unholy alliance between State Department CORRUPTION during the Nobama years with Hitlery Broomstick and Soros with numerous ties to the demorat socialists and their children plundering money for ill-gotten gain. Let's NOT FORGET that we would have known NONE OF THIS deep corruption and "fundamental change" Nobama so often spoke of were it not for the election of Donald Trump! MANY of the RINO's hands are deep into the $$$ trough as well getting funding sources from unusual sources despite serious 'oversight' from election laws, so they stay quiet instead of rooting out this scheme for fear of it tainting THEM. Dig MUCH DEEPER than the insulting pablum the media uses to take our feeble minds awar from the real issues at hand....

We need to stop saying that she was fired. She was not fired. She was recalled and is still employed at the State Department assigned to Georgetown University. She denies presenting a do not prosecute list to Ukraine but that is either a lie or a careful parsing of the words. Republican's from the committee have said that the secret basement interviews included members of her staff in Ukraine who confirmed that she demanded that Ukraine not prosecute certain people as part of their anti-corruption campaign. Schiff is not releasing this contradictory testimony to prevent the Republicans from bringing it up in the hearings. This is the equivalent of a grand Jury revealing exculpatory evidence and the prosecutor hiding it from the accused. The entire Schiff hearing is a farce and completely corrupt.

PS. I do have one thing to say. Although McCarthy captured the essence of yesterday’s hearing, it is important to watch these whenever and however you can. The videos are streamed live at Conservative Treehouse and are available for later viewing. We had to do the latter. It works beautifully, and you can even edit out anything that is boring. Watching the proceedings gives the benefit of seeing and hearing how monsters like Schiff and the Dems perform, and how well our representatives do. Some better than others, but the Republican members of this committee are united behind President Trump and doing their very best in the limited time Schiff allows them. His arrogance was on full display yesterday. It ramped up when Stefanik (who is an all-star) was hitting nerves. Well worth watching...

Transgenderism and the Olympics 5 replies

Next year’s Tokyo Summer Olympics may spell the swift death of the transgender movement as a dominant politically-correct touchstone. Biological men, self-identifying as women, are poised to make a clean sweep of the Women’s Olympics, triggering a very public debate on this third-rail subject. That firestorm, pitting pro-women feminists against extreme pro-transgender progressives, will begin July 24th, just as the Presidential sweepstakes moves into its sprint to the finish line.

Last night's Democratic presidential debate featured a slew of predictable boilerplate from the candidates advocating for abortion. First, Sen. Amy Klobuchar got asked about it, and she stated the usual stuff, and then Sen. Elizabeth Warren got asked a slightly different question by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow about whether there was any room left in the Democratic party for a pro-life Democrat, such as Louisiana's governor John Bel Edwards. Warren was evasive, failing to answer the question directly, but she made it pretty clear there was no room.

Watching Schiff's trumped up inquiry about nothing but a phone call, the transcript of which has been available to the public for many weeks, is like watching The Caine Mutiny (1954) without the drama. The film is about a naval captain whose first officer relieves him of his command when the man demonstrates obvious signs of mental instability. All that is missing from Schiff's on-air mental collapse are the little steel balls that Humphrey Bogart as Captain Queeg fiddled with while on the stand at the court-martial of the mutineers. Queeg was obsessed with missing strawberries. Schiff's impending mental breakdown is demonstrably more obvious, less subtle than Queeg's.

As Rep. Adam Schiff’s “sentence first, trial later” show trial of President Donald J. Trump reaches a so-called public hearing phase, we find the weaver of fables dictating what witnesses the GOP will be permitted to call based on a set of three qualifying question they must answer in advance. These questions ask, essentially, if the witnesses believe President Trump is guilty of pressuring Ukraine to dig up dirt on the Bidens in exchange for military aid. The GOP, it seems, will not be allowed to call witnesses who have testimony or evidence to the contrary, that there was no pressure and no quid pro quo.

Gender transition can leave transgender people in a bit of a bind about their sexual desirability. While a transgender female may look, act, and feel masculine and exhibit male tendencies, she is just as female as any other female. If she is interested in either gay men or straight women, she could find herself perpetually attracted to individuals who are not going to be interested in her simply because of her vagina. The same holds true for transgender men who have retained their penises. If they are into lesbian women or straight men, those two demographics will most likely be turned off by their body parts.
