Program Note

[ Posted Thursday, January 30th, 2020 – 17:57 UTC ]

There will be no column today, sorry. I am playing hooky to watch all of the last day of questions in the impeachment trial in the Senate. Also, next week's going to be a doozy, starting with the Iowa caucuses on Monday, the State Of The Union speech on Tuesday, and finishing with the next Democratic debate on Friday. So I'm resting up for all of that. Again, my apologies for the lack of column today, but promise I'll be sharing all my impeachment trial thoughts in tomorrow's column, as I did last week.

    Really??

    All of that is a "doozy"??

    But the total exoneration and vindication of President Trump and the utter decimation of the Democrat's latest faux impeachment coup doesn't even warrant a mention?? :D

    President Trump did NOT tell anyone to go pound sand..

    President Trump told Democrats, "See you in court"

    Democrats opted to NOT go to court because they knew they would lose..

    Nope! Trump is a coward. He didn’t respond at all — he just acted like he never received their requests. This was the clearest signal that Trump was just stalling for time — he gamed the legal system’s process so that it would take 3 separate visits to SCOTUS before Congress would receive any documents that they sought.

    It’s no longer a question of whether Trump was guilty of withholding foreign aid to force a foreign government to claim it was investigating a candidate Trump knows would kick his ass in the 2020 election...Trump defense has made the case that he did do exactly that! Now, the Senate will vote to decide if a president really is able to do anything he wishes without oversight from Congress or the Judicial system!

    Dershowitz’s argument — that if a president is so narcissistic as to believe that their re-election is truly in the nation’s best interests, nothing they do can be viewed as an impeachable offense — might just cause the Founding Fathers to burst out of their graves to set the record straight as to what actions are impeachable.

    And if Republicans vote to acquit, then nothing would prevent Trump from canceling the 2020 presidential election because he believes it is in our country’s best interest for him to remain in office.

    HIGH CRIMES

    The left reacts

    Reaction from the left was immediate and emotional. Mara Gay, a member of The New York Times editorial board, lamented on MSNBC that the situation was "really a capstone in a, just, total collapse of faith in American institutions."

    Gay went on to say that her father grew up in the Jim Crow-era South, and declared that Republicans' arguments were "quite familiar" and reminded her of that time.

    "And you know, I have to say, as somebody who grew up with a father who grew up in the Jim Crow South, and in, uh, Jim Crow Detroit, a lot of what this has looked like from the Republican side, the kind of a maddening and farcical nature of this, the lack of good-faith argument, sounds very familiar to me. It's actually very scary."

    Anchor Brian Williams, who notably lied repeatedly in order to embellish his time in Iraq, then said that Gay spoke for a "metric ton" of the network's viewers.

    Jim Crow???

    Nice spin.. That's not was Der said and you know it.

    Actually, it is EXACTLY what DerDumbShit said — costing him any credibility and respect he might have had as a law professor and scholar. I hope he got paid a lot to represent that disgusting sex offender scum...Not to mention he also represented Jeffrey Epstein, an equally repulsive individual!

    Dershowitz said that as long as the president believed it was in the country’s best interest for him to do whatever selfish thing he decides to do, then Trump cannot be impeached over it!

    That means he can cancel our elections.

    He can have news media that he claims reports “fake news’ about him forced out of business.

    He can have anyone who hurts his fragile wittle feelings thrown in jail.

    He can personally profit off the American people having to pay excessive prices to cover the costs of the Secret Service forced to stay at his private clubs. Oh wait... he already does that!

    Bottom line: Dershowitz proved he’d go to any length to defend his clients — even at the cost of his own reputation and self-respect for making such ridiculous arguments!

    I’m guessing a few of the President’s attorney’s will be facing disbarment after this trial is complete. All for a man who will toss them under the bus in a second...and whose check will probably bounce!

    And Republicans will have the pleasure of knowing that history will forever mock them for being the most corrupted wussies to ever accept foreign money in exchange for their souls!

    The world is watching this Impeachment and waiting nervously to see if our country can pull together to rid ourselves of the cancerous orange tumor, or has the cancer taken over and we are toast. Our international reputation is at stake; if Trump is acquitted, we’ll be mourned as a great civilization that has been lost!

    At one point Thursday afternoon, Jeffries argued that the Steele dossier -- written by a foreign ex-spy and dependent in part on Russian sources -- did not constitute improper foreign election interference because the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid for the dossier, rather than receiving it at no cost.

    His claim came in response to a question from Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., that was aimed at arguing how the Democrats wouldn't want to apply their standards to their own candidates.

    "Hillary Clinton's campaign and [the] Democratic National Committee hired a retired foreign spy to work with Russian contacts to build a dossier of opposition research against their political opponent, Donald Trump. Under the House managers' standard, would the Steele dossier be considered foreign interference in the U.S. election, a violation of the law, and/or an impeachable offense?" Burr asked.

    Jeffries then rose and declared, "The analogy is, uh, not applicable to the present situation because, first, to the extent that opposition research was obtained, it was opposition research that was purchased."

    This is EXACTLY why the Democrats' case is non-existent and their hypocrisy is glaringly obvious..

    According to Democrats, "election interference" is perfectly acceptable if you pay for it, but not if you get it for free...

    That is ya'all's Democrat Party position!

    And what the hell was Warren thinking with that totally unfounded attack on Chief Justice Roberts!??

    Separately, at the Senate impeachment trial Thursday, Warren posed a question that, by rule, was read aloud by Roberts -- and even Democrats in the chamber appeared visibly puzzled by the interrogatory.

    "At a time when large majorities of Americans have lost faith in government, does the fact that the chief justice is presiding over an impeachment trial in which Republican senators have thus far refused to allow witnesses or evidence contribute to the loss of legitimacy of the chief justice, the Supreme Court and the Constitution?" Roberts read from the card handed to him by the clerk.

    Warren just proved she does not have the diplomatic chops to be President..

    TEXAS IS GOING BLUE!!!!

    Texas Is About To Go Blue! Never Mind

    While many Americans were focused on Washington this week, I was paying special attention to Fort Bend County, Texas. What took place in that Houston suburb may reveal more about the 2020 election than the impeachment trial in the Senate does.

    Fort Bend held a special runoff election to fill a vacant state House seat left open by the resignation of the Republican incumbent, who took a job with the University of Texas. Sensing an opening, state and national Democrats decided a win in House District 28 would give them a head start on flipping the nine seats they’d need to control the Texas House and boost their efforts to overturn GOP state legislative majorities from Arizona to Florida, Wisconsin to Pennsylvania and a dozen states in between.

    The reason for this intense Democratic interest in state politics is redistricting. Democrats saw how Republican state legislative majorities affected the composition of the U.S. House after the 2010 census. Democrats want to do in more states what they did back then in drawing congressional lines favorable to their party in California, Illinois, Maryland and other blue bastions. The 2020 census gives them the opportunity, but only if they control at least one chamber of a state’s legislature.

    Democrats, eager to set the tone for 2020, piled into the race with money, endorsements, technology, lists and volunteers to help Elizabeth Markowitz defeat her Republican opponent. Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Mike Bloomberg all endorsed Ms. Markowitz. Mr. Bloomberg even carved out time from his presidential campaign to go door-to-door with her. Former presidential candidates Julián Castro and Robert Francis O’Rourke also canvassed neighborhoods, Mr. O’Rourke so frequently that it looked as if he was trying to establish residency.

    Calling the race “the most important election (yet) in 2020,” the former El Paso congressman said a victory could help turn Texas blue and “build momentum” in the state for the eventual Democratic presidential nominee.

    Oh.. wait.. Never mind.. :D

    THE RUBES PREVAIL!!!!

    Just like in 2016, President Trump’s supporters see a president who is facing unprecedented attacks from the Washington establishment: Democrats, faux-Republicans, and the liberal media. Those establishment figures can’t help but express their disdain for their fellow countrymen — the “rubes” outside the Beltway. Every time they do, it’s a win for President Trump.

    The “rubes” will rise up in 2020. “Rubes” like me will reward a president who is committed to economic growth and border security. “Promises made, promises kept” is not just a campaign slogan, but a roadmap to continued prosperity, with better jobs, higher wages, secure borders, improved education, and a stronger and more appreciated military. But, most of all, it is a roadmap for the next generation to continue leading the world.

    The losers may be uniting, but neither President Trump nor Great America PAC are tired of winning. And we will win again in 2020 — because the country and the world need our agenda.

    While the current impeachment show bores me, it did make me wonder if impeachment could be used for a more productive purpose.

    As many claim that grounds for impeachment doesn't have to be an actual criminal violation of a law this may be because a legislator can violate their oath of office with violating a law.

    I think the oath of office includes defending the country and/or Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, so couldn't a case be made that any incumbents taking big money to run their campaigns are violating their oath of office by taking big money to run their re-election campaigns?

    Of course since the majority of legislators would have to impeach themselves there is no one in the legislatures to implement these impeachments.

    Citizens do, however, have a chance in 2020 to cast an impeachment vote against the agents of the domestic enemies of democracy by voting against big money candidates in the primaries and November elections.

    Anyone supporting the Clinton impeachment or the current impeachment should also find violating the oath of office by taking big money to run a campaign at least as serious an offense as in the Clinton and current impeachment in order to remain consistent and not simply be full of shit.

    Let's make 2020 the Year of the Mass Impeachment.

    "No" on the hearing part of your question; "yes" on the remainder... as Trump's counsel were full-tilt on the repetitive distracting bullshit in their fabrication regarding Joe Biden because they had zero legal defense of Donald Trump because he's guilty... and Republicans know this.

    All the reverse engineering to create a distraction/farce is a necessary invention to cover Trump's ass, and Republicans know this. Biden was most assuredly carrying out the Obama administration's policy... bipartisan United States policy, and Republicans know this.

    The Obama administration, Republican and Democratic Senators of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, and our global allies were pushing in unison for Ukraine to "press ahead with urgent reforms to the Prosecutor General's office and judiciary," and have I mentioned Republicans know this? Trump's counsel knows this and have chosen to reverse engineer their ass-covering lies.

    Portman, Durbin, Shaheen, and Senate Ukraine Caucus Reaffirm Commitment to Help Ukraine Take on Corruption

    February 12, 2016 | Press Releases

    Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), co-chairs of the bipartisan Senate Ukraine Caucus, and Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on European Affairs spearheaded a letter expressing concern to Ukrainian President Poroshenko regarding the recent resignation of Minister of Economy Aivaras Abromavi?ius?, who has alleged that corruption remains a dire challenge within the Ukrainian political system. In the letter, Portman, Durbin, and Shaheen said they recognized the challenges facing the Ukrainian government two years after the Maidan brought positive change to Ukraine. They also reaffirmed their commitment to help President Poroshenko confront the duel threat posed by Russian aggression in Ukraine as well as entrenched corruption in the government and to create a transparent and democratic government. The letter was also signed by Senators Ron Johnson (R-WI), Chris Murphy (D-CT), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

    “We recognize ?that your governing coalition faces not only endemic corruption left from decades of mismanagement and cronyism, but also an illegal armed seizure of territory by Russia and its proxies,” the senators wrote. “Tackling such obstacles to reforms amidst a war and the loss of much of southeastern Ukraine’s economic productivity is a formidable challenge -- one which we remain committed to helping you overcome.”

    Full text of the letter can be found below.

    Dear President Poroshenko,

    As members of the U.S. Senate Ukraine Caucus and strong supporters of your government, we write to express our concern regarding the recent resignation of Minister of Economy Aivaras Abromavi?ius? and his allegations of persistent corruption in the Ukrainian political system.

    During the past year, Mr. Abromavi?ius and his team implemented tough but necessary economic reforms, worked to combat endemic corruption, and promoted more openness and transparency in government. He was known to many of us as a respected reformer and supporter of the Ukrainian cause. Minister Abromavi?ius?’s allegations raise concerns about the enormous challenges that remain in your efforts to reform the corrupt system you inherited.

    We recognize ?that your governing coalition faces not only endemic corruption left from decades of mismanagement and cronyism, but also an illegal armed seizure of territory by Russia and its proxies. Tackling such obstacles to reforms amidst a war and the loss of much of southeastern Ukraine’s economic productivity is a formidable challenge -- one which we remain committed to helping you overcome.

    Succeeding in these reforms will show Russian President Vladimir Putin that an independent, transparent, and democratic Ukraine can and will succeed. It also offers a stark alternative to the authoritarianism and oligarchic cronyism prevalent in Russia. As such, we respectfully ask that you address the serious concerns raised by Minister Abromavi?ius?. We similarly urge you to press ahead with urgent reforms to the Prosecutor General's office and judiciary. The unanimous adoption by the Cabinet of Ministers of the Basic Principles and Action Plan is a good step.

    We very much appreciate your leadership and commitment to reform since the Ukrainian people demonstrated their resolve on the Maidan two years ago, and we look forward to continued cooperation in the future.

    The very next and last question to the desk from Democrats was to ask the house managers to respond to that outrageous inference from the president's counsel before the senate adjourns for the night.

    Exactly correct. The question was from Amy Klobuchar. There was some confusion regarding the question, and Ms. Klobuchar even returned to the desk to clear it up.

    Then, Schiff was about to get up to answer but Nadler beat him to it, as Schiff tried to stop him from speaking, calling, "Jerry!".

    Yep.

    Nadler didn't address the Biden comparison but just went into his usual rant about and angry tone.

    Totally glossed over the utter asinine fabrication that Biden's actions in Ukraine were purely personal... utter reverse engineered nonsensical fabricated bullshit, and... Elizabeth, you know it... I know it... and Republicans know it! It's a distraction that is part and parcel of a larger cover-up of Trump's ample ass, and you can bet your bottom Republicans know it.

    They may have thought they would be able to dispose of Trump after accomplishing their "primary" goal, but were less concerned with that possibility not happening than running against Bernie in the 2016 general election.

    The reaction to Trump winning in 2016 was nothing more than the standard scapegoating to avoid accepting any responsibility for offering another false alternative candidate to the other party that both parties do when they lose.

    There are still those, for example, that still want to insist that it was Ralph Nader that cost Gore the 2000 election.

    Oh, my lovely, I see what you did there. *laughs* You rightly hit the nail square on it's ugly head, and in the instant issue, Dersh has a past and an ass to hide... that the "underwear" excuse just wasn't covering it. A woman came forward and reported she had sex with Dershowitz several times while she was a minor. Poor Dershowitz insists this never happened although does confess to getting a "massage":

    I kept my underwear on during the massage. I don't like massages particularly.

    Dershowitz said that as long as the president believed it was in the country’s best interest for him to do whatever selfish thing he decides to do, then Trump cannot be impeached over it!

    You'd be inventing hysterical bullshit too if you had to cover Trump's ample ass while at the same time trying to cover your own.

    Bottom line: Dershowitz proved he’d go to any length to defend his clients — even at the cost of his own reputation and self-respect for making such ridiculous arguments!

    Dersh is defending his own past... his own ass, and he's not alone. There are several counsel providing similar cover-up of their very own asses just as much as they're covering Trump's.

    So why was the president of the United States in Des Moines on a Thursday night when he still stands trial for impeachment in Washington? Because Donald Trump had a simple message for the Democrats lining up for a chance to take him on in November: As far as he’s concerned, Iowa belongs to him.

    For starters, the flimsy articles of impeachment that Democrats have brought forth aren't crimes, much less the "high crimes" required to remove a sitting president. That alone is sufficient grounds to end this charade that's chock full of presumptions and assumptions from partisans that the president may have done something wrong.

    Now, add the fact that everyone in Washington knows that Democrats won't obtain the 2/3 vote required from the Republican-controlled Senate to oust President Donald Trump. This is especially true given that the transcript of his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Zelenskiy shows no quid pro quo and no crimes committed.

    Moreover, a witness with firsthand knowledge of the phone call in question, Zelenskiy, has stated there was "no pressure" and Trump did nothing wrong. Other top Ukrainian government officials confirmed this. That's what parties involved said. Now, let's look at the actions that took place in the aftermath of the call. U.S. military aid was timely delivered to Ukraine and no investigations were opened into Joe Biden or Hunter Biden.

    Case closed.

    Misuse of Whistleblower Law Created Impeachment Farce

    Okay, bad joke. In any case, anyone with the slightest interest already knows who he or she is, although some pretend they don’t, like the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts and the very Adam Schiff.

    Nevertheless his (let’s be at least that honest) identity is being hidden because that is allegedly required by the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989. It’s unclear whether that is true.

    But let’s be honest a second time. Congress (if it’s still awake) and legal scholars should look immediately into revising the Whistleblower Protection Act because it appears to have been turned on its head and used as a weapon for some of the most despicable behavior in American history. Something’s drastically wrong with its language that it could be exploited that way.

    Letter dated January 21, 2019 from House Impeachment Managers to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, notifying him that he is a material witness and must disclose relevant facts:

    https://tinyurl.com/t2uld5a

    Interesting reading.

    There's a reason for Trump and his counsel's cover-up and refusal to allow testimony: Many of them were directly involved in the shakedown, and government officials cannot use constitutional privileges to hide evidence of their illegal actions... the "crime/fraud exception" to executive privilege.

    So Trump's impeachment counsel are insisting he holds "executive privilege" that Trump has never invoked, and meanwhile Trump has waived executive privilege in multiple Twitter rants... claimed... just ordering no one to testify or supply documents to 70+ requests for documents and multiple subpoenaes and forcing them into court, when meanwhile the Department of Justice is arguing in court that the House -- "We the People" -- have no standing in court and their only recourse is to impeach.

    After the ruling in the McGahn case in the House's favor, Bolton agreed to testify, and if the Senate fails to do their job and is complicit in the cover-up by orchestrating the first impeachment trial ever in the history of our nation wherein witnesses would be blocked, the House should simply subpoena and depose John Bolton and anyone else who decides to come forward based on his newly obtained testimony... since there is no immunity from prosecution for them like the POTUS enjoys until he's out of office, and as demonstrated repeatedly, the Trump loyalty rolls only one way. In short: Lawyer up.

    And while I do believe it would be infinitely ignorant of the Senate to be complicit in the cover-up while at the same time allowing the House to take back the sole control of the issue within their congressional chamber, I have little doubt that the facts will emerge one way or the other... they always do. :)

    The Senate’s vote should be limited to ruling on whether Trump is guilty or innocent of the charges outlined in each of the articles. Not whether or not they believe the Articles of Impeachment are truly impeachable...THEY ARE....the very fact that they were sent to the Senate for them to conduct the trial proves that.

    And the argument that the White House ruled that the Congressional subpoenas were not properly constructed and were therefore denied required Congress to seek judicial review is laughable. The White House does not have the authority to make such a ruling as to the validity of the subpoenas. THEY had 2 choices for how they had to respond: Either give Congress what it sought OR seek the court’s opinion as to the validity of the subpoenas. They did NEITHER, therefore the obstruction of Congress charge is warranted.

    But remember, as long as Trump BELIEVES in his tiny little heart that every thing he does is in the “nation’s best interest” he is above the law....he is above impeachment...he’s KING! Trump’s defense team has pretty much made away every independent and undecided voter run in horror! Good job.

    Incorrect. Donald Trump has been impeached on two counts... in perpetuity. A vote to have no witnesses in his impeachment trial isn't quite yet a vote for acquittal; however, the miscarriage of justice has happened. The Senate has greenlit a "trial" with no witnesses, and no one with a pulse expected anything but an acquittal... but not today. Of course, no one ever had any doubt that the Senate wouldn't remove him; they're spineless and now complicit, and they shut it down.

    It’s sweet, but I understand it, if your only view of the “gay universe” has been campy fictional TV characters, Liberace, and your local news’ annual Gay Pride parade story showing the most flaming of queens in ass-less chaps, go-go boots, and a feathered boa — it’s a shock to find a person who disproves the argument you’ve convinced yourself to accept for why you can’t really be gay — “I am nothing like them!” We are both masculine, built, and fairly handsome (D much more so than me) men. It’s always fun to see how long it takes for people to grasp that when we say we are “partners”, we are more than just workout partners.

    But back to the Trumpkin in the room...if he’s in the closet, I’m all for boarding that closet door permanently!

    You remain demonstrably clueless. It's comical to watch.

    And you remain demonstrably without facts to support your claims..

    THAT is hilarious to watch.. :D

    So what? You would anyway. Your low self-esteem requires it; your peevish neediness is ever and always on full display.

    What ever you have to tell yourself to make it thru your sad and pathetic day..

    You can't comprehend that, by constantly responding to my comments, it's YOU that has the low self-esteem and peevish neediness.. :D

    Remember in November :)

    Yep.. You said the same thing about November of 2016...

    Remind me again how THAT worked out for ya??

    BWWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    You were completely and utterly WRONG .. :D

    Oh.. Wait!! :D

    BBBWWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA

    Once again, Russ and Kick.

    Were TOTALLY and UNEQUIVOCALLY wrong.

    Of course, they will try and deny it now...

    They can't handle that the FACTS have proven how utterly and completely full of shit they all are..

    But I love when they struggle and flounder trying to deny reality.. :D

    *laughs* Said the needy nerfherder begging for attention for whom self-awareness is nonexistent in the wee small wheelhouse of his tiny little universe of his so-called comments. Your comments!? Your comments? *laughs*

    The vast majority of your claptrap doesn't qualify as "your comments"... as they are bullshit mountains of cut-and-paste dipshittery that you spam regularly from other websites and cut-and-paste liberally onto another man's forum.

    Since you're desperately seeking someone to actually respond to "your comments," you'll first have to post some political ideas of you own that you didn't pilfer, steal, and nick-paste in your regular bombardment of this site with the nonstop bull-spammery that is easily ignored by scrolling.

    Nope... but I did indeed say the EXACT same thing after the Kavanaugh hitjob in 2018. I guess you forgot because you ran away whining hysterically and were nowhere to be found in November.

    Welcome to the present; while you are certainly free to continue wallowing like a pig in the cesspool that was 2016 with your ever-present denial of the reality you seem incapable of grasping, why don't you pull your head out of Trump's ass, open your eyes and try gazing into 2020.

    Remind me again how THAT worked out for ya??

    It worked out in a Blue Wave, a resultant two-count impeachment, and the abdication by Republican Senators to a Dick Tater.

    Remember in November. :)

    Kick,

    Very nice response - all I need to hear from you now is that the third time is the charm - if you know what I mean and I think that you do!
