Send in the clowns! Let’s be clear about this ‘scam sham’ of an impeachment ‘investigation’. It’s just another in a long litany of ‘get rid of Trump’ efforts. This time, career-criminal and congenital liar ‘shifty-Schiff’ found some butt-hurt State Department bureaucrats with panties very much in a wad because that’s what career-plutocratic bureaucrats do for a living. Plus they spend rather a lot of time twiddling their thumbs and ‘worrying’.
We the People’s warrior-president Trump is doing foreign relations his way; which, by the way, is a president’s prerogative, not anybody else’s. Lifelong plutocratic bureaucrats follow orders, not determine foreign policy. Complaining about Trump’s using ‘back channels’ to interact with foreign nations is totally off-limits, being that there’s absolutely nothing unusual, unethical or illegal about this.
Send in the clowns if you must, but American presidents (and heads of government world-wide) have been doing this since the establishment of the nation. George Washington used John Jay. FDR used Harry Hopkins. Trump uses Rudy Giuliani. If they have an irreconcilable problem with the way their BOSS is doing something, they should do the right thing and resign.
Heretofore, a little primer on the Deep State:
Non-elected plutocratic bureaucrats with substantial power in government that remain in their positions regardless of the outcome of elections. Looking at history, the deep state is the reason we have FISA courts. The grandfather of the deep state, J Edgar Hoover, used his position to illegally spy on politicians to obtain blackmail material and quietly elicit control over those politicians, thereby allowing him to remain in his position for nearly 5 decades.
Brought to you by the same people who gave us: Operation Mockingbird / MK Ultra / Iraq & WMDs / Gulf of Tonkin / Tuskegee syphilis experiment / Pat Tillman Afghanistan & poppy fields / Iran Contra / and on & on & on &on, ad infinitum. There’s nothing a lifelong plutocratic bureaucrat won’t dabble his/her hands into in efforts to remain ‘useful, productive, engaged, and always busy, busy, busy like bees in a hive.
Got it? Good.
Matt Margolis, PJMedia and ‘Ukraine’s Foreign Minister confirms no Linkage to investigation’…
On Thursday, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko told reporters that Gordon Sondland, the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, did not link military aid from the United States with investigations into Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
“Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and did not tell me exactly, about the relation between the [military] assistance and the investigations,” Prystaiko said. “I have never seen a direct link between investigations and security assistance. Yes, investigations were mentioned, you know, in a presidential conversation. But there was no clear connection between these events,” he added.
The alleged linkage between the aid and the investigation was crucial to the Democrats’ argument of a quid pro quo, which they are now trying to impeach President Trump for.
This lines up with Sondland’s closed-door testimony when he testified that when he asked Trump what he wanted from Ukraine Trump said, “I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. I want Zelensky to do the right thing… to do what he ran on.” Sondland’s amended testimony also makes clear that he has no idea why military aid to Ukraine had been temporarily suspended.
So, let’s consider the state of the Democrats’ case against Trump: The Democrats’ witnesses do not have any direct knowledge of any linkage between the military aid to Ukraine and investigating the Bidens or a public anti-corruption statement and Ukraine officials were not aware of any linkage.
Can someone explain to me how this impeachment inquiry is not a witch hunt?
Ambassador Taylor and his cohort, bow-tied George Kent, both said in testimony that the U.S. aid to Ukraine was dependent on opening an investigation into Trump’s political rivals. Ambassador Taylor said he came to his ‘clear conclusion’ based on what other people said about what other people heard about conversations with other people.
Not to make too light of it all, but just how can DemoMarxocrats expect us to trust them to govern if they can’t even run a competent coup? Next thing you know, they’ll be claiming Ukraine’s Foreign Minister is corrupt and we can’t trust his word, meaning we have to withhold military aid to Ukraine until he says there was a quid pro quo.
As one comedian put it the other day on the same topic – My wife’s sister’s husband said that someone at work told him that he overheard a telephone conversation and the person on the other end of the conversation said that there was no quid pro quo or threats to withhold foreign aid with Ukraine.
So I guess that means the impeachment inquiry is over. ‘Done and dusted’ would be a better description. Send in the clowns!
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – We the People’s duly-elected president Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
