Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 12/28/2019 5:06:41 AM

(Tweet/Video) During an interview with the Des Moines Register on Friday, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden stated that if he was subpoenaed to testify at the Senate’s impeachment trial, he would not comply, and that if he testified it would create a “diversion” that would allow President Trump to “get away.” Biden explained that he wouldn’t testify “because it’s all designed to deal with Trump doing what he’s done his whole life, trying to take the focus off him. The issue is not what I did. Not a single person, not one single person, even that thug Giuliani and his [unintelligible] compatriots have said

Biden does not respect the constitutional authority of the US Senate he served so long. But it would be good to know how much moola Fertilization Wonder Hunter Biden made. He could become the most profitable sperm donor in the USA and admired by all.

FTA: ''Biden explained that he wouldn’t testify “because it’s all designed to deal with Trump doing what he’s done his whole life, trying to take the focus off him.'' Brilliant thought Joe, we all know what a quiet, shy and unassuming man President Trump is. Always hiding in the shadows and all that. You're a bought and paid for crook.

Here we go again; we have another presidential candidate indicating that he will break the law if he becomes president. So typical. "says he wouldn't comply with a Senate subpoena in @realDonaldTrump's impeachment trial because it would create a narrative that would let the president "off the hook."" Because he's guilty of doing what they accuse the President of doing. How do we know? Well, stupid Joe told us so, and we have it on tape. People who accuse PDT of quid pro quo were allegedly told by other people (hearsay) that he committed the "crime," while crazy Joe bragged to us out of his own garbage mouth (testified) that he committed the crime. "Not a single person, not one single person, even that thug Giuliani and his [unintelligible] compatriots have said I did anything other than my job." Again, no one has to say what you did, Joe. You freaking said it! So whatcha gonna do when Barr comes for you?

#4, I would throw in that other impeachment article - abuse of power - too. Biden is a former VP and is using that powerful position as a means of skirting the law. Both of PDT’s “crimes” need to be shoved down Biden’s throat.

“...that thug Giuliani,” huh? Politicians’ honoraria seem to be the appropriate way to address them in posts (‘President’ Obama, ‘Secretary’ Clinton, ‘Congressman’ West), but to discuss’Vice President’ Biden and his public statements and private actions makes me uncomfortable. The lopsided grin, the jaunty, devil-may-care affect, the faux man-of -the-people shtick, the casual cruelties and gross inaccuracies, make me want a quick shower afterwards.

Why is McConnell letting the Trump impeachment scam to continue? Its a scam! its not a valid inquiry. End it. As for Biden, go after him through the other investigations. Joe and his family are dirty. There are many other dirty politicians to go after as well. Don't let any of them slide. Also, people need to see how corrupt our government is. They should not be there, and ultimately, the final arbiter in all of this will be the American voter. The should be voting these people out.

If Biden has nothing to hide....and his good name is being dragged thru the mud...this would be the PERFECT opportunity for the Dems to finally get something on Trump. But of course, Joe does have something to hide, and every question about his involvement with the Ukraine and Burisma would have ol' Joe invoking the 5th Amendment, which is admitting/denying nothing.And a non-answer would be just as good as an admission of guilt in the public eye.

Quid Pro Joe has it backwards.

We taxpayers were paying a large salary to Lurch Kerry to be Secretary of State, why wasn't he doing his job?

I thinks were headed for a serious confrontation that will require a serious response from the Republic. Here comes the Barr/Durham Express. The calls for resignation are flying and the typical progressive calls of racism. 2020 will be the year when the Democrat Party wears out it's welcome and those districts that provided a platform for these rats will have to answer for the crimes they allowed to be committed against there fellow citizens. Almost half the country condoned the lies and betrayal of the murderess Benghazi Hillary and the lies of there leader who will soon answer for the years of his sedition.

Barack Obama squandered the opportunity of a lifetime to become a transformational president. That was his signature ambition, obvious enough in his infamous remarks about how he would fundamentally transform the country. He ended up focused on identity politics, rather than any transformation for the better of the economy. But the economy is what concerns ordinary Americans, not identity politics. Had Obama addressed that while he was president, he could have solidified a winning coalition for the Democrats that could have lasted for a very long time

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is doing to President Donald Trump what no one else has in the nearly three years since he took office: She's making him squirm. In the wake of an impeachment inquiry and with a looming trial in the Senate, the president has become increasingly frustrated by Pelosi's unprecedented decision to withhold the two articles of impeachment against him from the upper chamber until Majority Leader Mitch McConnell guarantees a fair and impartial trial. Pelosi's refusal to transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate has robbed the president of what he wants most: "total and complete exoneration" following a trial.

The latest call to action from some criminal-justice activists: “Abolish the police.” From the streets of Chicago to the city council of Seattle, and in the pages of academic journals ranging from the Cardozo Law Review to the Harvard Law Review and of mainstream publications from the Boston Review to Rolling Stone, advocates and activists are building a case not just to reform policing—viewed as an oppressive, violent, and racist institution—but to do away with it altogether. When I first heard this slogan, I assumed that it was a figure of speech, used to legitimize more expansive criminal-justice reform. But after reading the academic and activist literature,

Only a few days after the impeachment vote, President Donald Trump hit his best job-approval rating ever in the Quinnipiac poll. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is ready to slap the process around like a housecat tormenting a sparrow. The magic bullet missed, and now Democrats have to make a more ordinary case against Trump. The problem is: They don’t know how. The case against Trump in 2016 was that he is unfit for the office.

A new California law that takes effect in 2020 will make it illegal to suspend a student in grades 1-5 for disobeying teachers or administrators. Starting next year, the rule will be applied to students in grades 6-8 and will include charter schools. There's a very good reason for this change, according to supporters.
