‘Hearsay’ as they say, is like the game of telephone. Each person who hears the message is liable to change it on cue. Norman Rockwell’s classic, ‘Gossips’, is a prime example.
The foreign-policy wonk careerists are desperate to protect ‘their turf,’ while Congressional DemoMarxocrats vainly seek to deflect attention away from the Bidens’ covert corruption and President Trump’s brilliant record to date. This will not end well for any of them.
For the past three or four years, the entire thrust of the Hearsay Party and the Deep State has been to use the levers of government for partisan political purposes, to overturn an election, and to effect another upcoming election one year out. To all intents and purposes, this whole impeachment farce has basically shut down Congress for totally political purposes, as the DemoMarxocrats wearily attempt to construct a rationale for impeachment on the fly. Every day they come up with a new talking point, which the MSM lamestreams dutifully repeat like a flock of mynah birds.
Mmmmm, let’s see … Abuse of Power didn’t work. Quid Pro Quo Joe didn’t work. Extortion didn’t work. So now we’re down to the new meme-du-jour – ‘bribery’ – that’s the ticket for Trump’s one-way trip out of the White House! SanFranNan even botched up the meaning of the darned word.
O wait! What the farce really boils down to is that SanFranNan is so demented she actually believes she should impeach a president she hates because she has a 40-seat majority in the House of Representatives. Really? What about We the People who creamed her party’s butt Nov 4 2016?
Insanity on stilts.
When US politicians are being paid off to do things in favor of a foreign entity but against US interests by laundering ill-gotten money through their children, then we the voters should know about it. This knowledge might benefit Trump and the Republicans, but it mostly benefits the voters and taxpayers to search, seek, and bring to account corrupt politicians.
Schiff, Pelosi, and the rest of the criminal cabal are prime examples leading all the way to Dem #44 and their totally corrupt shenanigans to take down a duly-elected president of We the People.
Joseph Klein, FrontPageMag and ‘Dems’ Surreal Impeachment Circus Rolls On’…
The House Democrats’ impeachment investigation circus moved into its televised public hearing phase, presided over by ringmaster House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. The public hearings began on Wednesday. The way things are going, the Democrats will need all the comfort they can get from the therapy dogs who were brought to the Hill by Pet Partners, a therapy-animal registration organization, and the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
The Ukraine case narrative the House Democrats have been trying to build against President Trump, centering on his July 25, 2019 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and President Trump’s alleged use of “irregular” channels to Ukrainian officials to push his personal political agenda, is turning into a quagmire. As Jonathan Turley, professor of law at George Washington University who testified as a constitutional expert in the Clinton impeachment hearings, wrote, “Democrats want to move forward on a barely developed evidentiary record and cursory public hearings on this single Ukraine allegation.” He added, “If Democrats seek to remove a sitting president, they are laying a foundation that would barely support a bungalow, let alone a constitutional tower. Such a slender impeachment would collapse in a two mile headwind in the Senate.”[-]
[+] … The Democrats have some fundamental problems that undermine their case. Much of their case relies on secondhand, thirdhand and even fourth-hand hearsay evidence. The bizarro world they inhabit is illustrated by this nugget from Democrat Rep. Mike Quigley, describing his understanding of what constitutes credible evidence: “Hearsay can be much better evidence than direct … and it’s certainly valid in this instance.”

Bottom line fact of the matter is that something is going to happen. One way or another. The dam(n), as they say, can only withstand so much pressure.
To whit, the mind of ‘The Left’ from a well-respected conservative Brit Philosopher in 2017:
“There is a need on the left to have an enemy. And the essential attitude of the left is founded in the belief that everything is in the wrong hands, and power is something that “I” ought to have, but somebody else has – so they look around for the things that have power, the old institutions, the things that have inherited wealth, influence, and the old world view that goes with that and they are all demonized, that they are not just an arrival set of beliefs or lifestyles, they are the enemy. The left believes the people on the other side [conservatives] are not just wrong, they are evil and they have the right to destroy them.” ~Sir Roger Scruton, Philosopher
As Byron York ends it in his piece (link below): In the Trump-Russia affair, the investigation was entrusted to a special counsel who ultimately could not establish that Schiff’s and the Democrats’ key allegation, a conspiracy or coordination between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign, ever actually occurred … But so far, at least, the investigation seems to have established that Trump’s alleged misconduct exists in the eye of the beholder … How did one man’s impression turn into the impeachment probe of today? And that is what Chairman Schiff does not want the nation to know.[end]
In other words, hearsay, innuendo, and makebelieve.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
