Oh, but the mincing Mitt Romney wants to hear from new witnesses! I sincerely hope he spends eternity in a dog cage on top of a car being driven around Hell.

"should be over by Wednesday" While I agree with the article, there is a couple days of defense and a couple days of questions left. Then there will be debate and a vote as to how to proceed. Then, if no witnesses, a vote on the evidence and acquittal. It will probably slip into at least Saturday and possibly next week.

And to think this joke is happening to keep the deep state, the msm, and hollywood happy. After the President's landslide win in November, I would imagine there will be mass destruction in the homes of the leftist Hollywood crowd and a large number of msm reporters on election night as they take revenge against their own homes. TDS is incurable.

FTA: "... all those who participated in this monstrous crime will be forever known as the Benedict Arnolds of the early 21st century." Benedict Arnold may have been a traitor - - but unlike our current traitors - - he at least founded a bakery which makes very good Jewish rye bread. And it makes a nice sandwich - - a nice sandwich.

It is a delicious irony that if the press were a little tougher on the Democrats, they would have better candidates. Trump has exposed their naked mediocrity. Obama was like a spoiled child daring anyone to discipline him, but instead they kept giving him candy. All things considered, I think Trump was pretty gentle with Hillary, who is clearly mentally and physically ill. The Democrats have kept as their leader a drunken old lady as Speaker who let degenerate partisans destroy her and the Democrats with this silly impeachment nonsense. The republicans had better embrace this opportunity to get rid of the sleaze and stench that is the deep state Democrat complex.

What concerns me is that not only is this an assault on President Trump, but it is a direct attack on our constitution. It has effectively changed the meaning of "high crimes and misdemeanors" to "We just don't like you." This cannot stand. As some pundits have noted, it lowers the bar for impeachment. Remember, impeachment can be used against any elected official. Impeachment must remain a last resort for disciplining an elected official. Something must be done, other than acquittal, to rein in the political motivation of this impeachment.

Wow that's some trial alright: Besides there being no witnesses, there are also no accusers(whistleblower), no victims(Bidens). Listening to democrats take turns spewing hate for Mr Trump for very subjective reasons for hours on end is not trial but is more like a jester's court, a big joke.

Yesterday, along with 20 to 30 patriots, this week’s Pro-Trump demonstration in Clearwater also attracted a couple of truly nasty individuals expressing their hatred of Donald Trump and anyone speaking out on the president’s behalf. One young man brought his filthy mouth and an anti-Trump sign; another, a woman walking her dog, angrily voiced her equally obscene objections. However, neither had anything constructive to say to us or for themselves. We can count on 2020 producing an unfortunate election for our divided country, which could easily turn violent. --Veterans for Trump 2020.

FTA: When the history of this attempted coup is written, all those who participated in this monstrous crime will be forever known as the Benedict Arnolds of the early 21st century. That is grossly unfair. To Benedict Arnold. Arnold was critical to the victory at Saratoga; he was twice badly wounded in the defense of his country. Arnold was a hero and a patriot before he was a traitor. When were any of those deranged Democrats ever heroes or patriots?

Saturday’s performance by Trump’s defense lawyers served to enlighten the public and, of course, exasperate Adam Schiff. He tweeted thus: After listening to the President’s lawyers opening arguments, I have three observations: They don’t contest the facts of Trump’s scheme. They’re trying to deflect, distract from, and distort the truth. And they are continuing to cover it up by blocking documents and witnesses. The “facts” of Trump’s “scheme” were not only contested, but utterly deflated in the White House lawyers’ two-hour presentation.

Democrats' insult-the-jury strategy
for winning their impeachment case

Posted by Magnante 1/25/2020 5:53:16 AM Post Reply
As if Democrats didn't screw the impeachment pooch for themselves earlier by having a House case so weak they had to ask the Senate to call their witnesses for them, and then presenting long, long, long-winded opening arguments that sent scores of Senate jurors fleeing the room, they have some hella bizarre logic in finishing out their case: Insult the jurors. That's some persuasion strategy. It's like they aren't interested in winning, not even with that tiny number of weak Republican swing Senators they need to persuade, who were more insulted than anyone.

Much of the day Thursday at the impeachment show was spent on how innocent the Bidens are of any wrongdoing re: Ukraine. Rep. Sylvia Garcia had fancy charts and graphs to demonstrate her point: There was absolutely nothing wrong with Hunter Biden trading on his name to make $50 - 80k a month on the board of a verified corrupt gas company in Ukraine, nor was there anything wrong with Joe's quid pro quo, that the prosecutor investigating that company be fired or a billion dollars in aid would not be forthcoming.

As the drama of Harry and Meghan unfolds, it becomes ever clearer that Harry is not a figure of tragedy, but of self-interested hypocrisy. The prince is not only dull, but the cause of dullness in others, more a figure of betrayal than of sacrifice. The psycho-drama of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is one of spoiled individuals shedding crocodile tears over their fate. In his final speech on January 18, 2020 in London, Harry delivered what was in essence an address about himself, mentioning as always the impact of his mother Diana on him but never mentioning his father, Prince Charles, who has been financing him.

While attending a “community conversation” in Grimes, Iowa, this past Monday, a man approached Elizabeth Warren to ask her a question about her student loan plan (snip) students blithely take on debt despite getting majors in areas that will never result in jobs that enable them to pay off that debt. That is, she intends to reward them – or their families – for being completely irresponsible. And it is that reward for irresponsibility that saw an irritated man approach Elizabeth Warren to complain about her proposal – and to get from her, in return, her dismissal of his concerns, a laugh, and a smirk.

Yes, impeachment is a constitutional process, but because nobody expects President Turmp to be convicted, this impeachment is mostly a television show – in the genre of reality TV -- intended by its creators to influence the November elections for president and Senate. But Democrats forget at their own peril that President Trump is the most successful reality television producer in the history of the medium. He not only understands how drama is played out in a way that satisfies mass audiences, he is a practitioner of the dramatic form of reality TV in which real people react to structured situations

Nancy Pelosi is a smart woman, or so we’ve been told. Shrewd, calculating, and ruthless are words also used to describe the current Speaker of the House. But for those of us paying attention, it’s become apparent she’s asleep at wheel. Consumed by the impeachment scam, hoping to damage the Trump brand beyond all repair; since beating him at the ballot box in November will be a near to impossible task, Pelosi is either ignoring the chaos brewing in her own party or she simply doesn’t care.

It is an old rule of journalism that it is better to get it right than to get it first. But after seeing how reporters reacted Sunday to news of retired NBA star Kobe Bryant's death, you could be forgiven for thinking that such a rule no longer exists, if it ever existed at all. The former Los Angeles Laker was among nine people killed Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Southern California. The other victims include Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna, one of her teammates on her basketball team, the teammate’s parent, and the pilot. Those are the facts.

Hillary Clinton promised in 2016 that she would make history, and she did. She lost a winnable election where she enjoyed every conceivable advantage over her opponent, including a roughly 2-to-1 edge in campaign spending. Clinton then went on to become the first failed nominee in modern American history who cannot manage to move on. John McCain returned to the Senate after his loss in 2008 to Barack Obama. John Kerry similarly went back to work in the Senate after the 2004 election and later joined Obama's administration. Al Gore still complains about losing in 2000 to George W. Bush,

On January 27, 1945, the Red Army took control of Auschwitz away from the Nazis, where more than one million Jewish victims were liquidated that comprised roughly 1/6 of all the murders committed during the Holocaust. Unlike the Operation Reinhard death camps of Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec, Majdankek, and Chelmo, which saw almost two million murders combined, Auschwitz functioned as both a concentration and a death camp. After the Operation Reinhard death camps had largely exterminated Polish Jewry by 1943, and since they had started to become a liability with the war effort swinging in favor of the Red Army, Auschwitz, located farther to the west, began killing more
