  1. Phil says:

    Boy, Kamala has really dropped like a rock.

  2. jason says:

    Okayyy…

    This is not an impeachment resolution,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters Tuesday morning. “I don’t know what an impeachment resolution is.”

  3. Phil says:

    That’s just bazaar. What the heck are these morons doing anyway? Do they even have a clue?

  4. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Warren has not taken the position as the clear frontrunner. It is still looking like a horse race, with Buttigieg beginning to gain some traction.

    Harris needs to pull out so she doesn’t embarrass herself in California.

  5. Phil says:

    California or bust. From what SD has been reporting she is dead there. The whole idea in California moving the primary up so early was to give Harris a springboard to the early lead for the nomination.

    Instead it is her early Waterloo.

  6. jason says:

    “jason claims he wants competing viewpoints. Then he should be happy that Fox has different viewpoints. Of course, the people excoriating Fox for Cavuto and Shep don’t want that.”

    Wow, dogs at York ASPCA just pricked their ears…

    Tell you what Bitter, you find a post where I ever said Fox should get rid of Shep or Cavuto and the dogs get $100.

    If not I will send $100 to the Flower Society or the retired lawyer’s home or wherever you want.

    Deal?

  7. Bitterlaw says:

    Harris stopped campaigning when Phil guaranteed she would be the nominee because of her race and gender. She should not have let up so soon..

  8. Bitterlaw says:

    I never said you said Fox should get rid of Cavuto. I am sure Tina and John and probably Phil would support axing him.

  9. Bitterlaw says:

    No Deal, A-hole. I fed the dogs a few years ago.

  10. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Kamala Harris was a protegee of former California House Speaker Willie Brown, who appointed her to many positions. There relationship was sort of creepy.

    “Brown was married at the time he and Harris dated, but – because he had been “estranged from his wife” Blanche Brown since 1981, according to People magazine –the relationship was not kept secret. A Sacramento Bee reporter told People that Brown “had a succession of girlfriends” and would “go to a party with his wife on one arm and his girlfriend on the other.”
    A 1994 Los Angeles Times report about then-California Assembly Speaker Brown’s “rush to hand out patronage jobs” described Harris as Brown’s “frequent companion” and said several people referred to her as Brown’s girlfriend. That report also cited a column from the Chronicle’s Herb Caen that called Harris “the Speaker’s new steady.” When they met, she was 29 and Brown was 60.”

  11. jason says:

    Dogs disappointed….

  12. Bitterlaw says:

    F the dogs. And llamas. Alpacas are cuter. Yeah. I said it.

  13. jason says:

    But maybe Corey won’t find any post where I called him “human scum” and the dogs will eat well.

  14. Phil says:

    Quite a quandary for the Democrats. All the leaders have problems. Sanders and Warren have a problem in the GE due to their out of the mainstream leftism in any GE. Biden is old and senile which is only going to get worse as the campaign drags on…plus the scandal with his son. Doubt he can make it to the finish line before he implodes. Someone else is going to have to emerge – someone left center on the spectrum that can actually be elected.

    On the other hand, what the heck do I know? As bitter reminds us I thought Harris was a cinch. My credibility is shot.

  15. Bitterlaw says:

    I think that Jason will call Corey scum at some point. He just has not done it yet.

  16. Tina says:

    I canceled cable long ago, Bl.

    But faux is becoming more and more cn and n light.

  17. Tina says:

    “F the Dogs.”

    Not Redacted. That is one cute dog.

  18. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    One of the politically knowledgeable posters on this board predicted that Democrats were so focused on defeating Trump that they would pick the candidate who was best able to do so. This makes logical sense, and in a normal world it might have happened. But the divisions among the Democrats are so deep, and leadership so weak, that the party has fractured, and it has turned into a civil war between the middle and far left of the Democratic Party.

  19. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The person to watch is Sanders. This is the Old Bolshevik’s last hurrah. In the end, I see his main goal as establishing a strong socialist movement in the U.S. It will be his legacy. If Biden is the nominee, I could see Sanders running as the Social Democratic candidate. He knows he will lose, but if he gets a large percentage of the vote, it could establish the Social Democrats as a major political major force — particularly as young voters are showing they have a positive view of socialism. Comrade Sanders becomes a major founding father of socialism in the U.S., and enters the Marxist Pantheon.

  20. Phil says:

    I assume you are being facetious, San Diego, about Sanders actually running as a socialist in the general….but yeah, that would for sure put him in the Karl Marx hall of fame.

  21. John says:

    #8
    Actually, I think Cavuto is good…when sticking to only business news. And Shep Smith was good when stuck to just news.
    But sometimes Cavuto lets his anti-Trump views get the better of him.

  22. John says:

    Justin Verlander. What can you say. One of the greatest pitchers of his generation is now 0-6 in World Series games.
    Tonight (Wednesday) is for all the marbles and will be the last major league until sometime in late February.

  23. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “The Pentagon has consistently stated that the U.S. mission to protect the Syrian oil fields is to aimed at keeping the oil out of the hands of a potential ISIS resurgence.

    However, Esper acknowledged Monday, that American forces in the region would also block access to the lucrative oil fields from Syrian and Russian forces. Esper said that the SDF rely on funds from the oil fields to help fund their forces and maintain ISIS prisons.

    Esper also said American forces protecting the oil fields where prepared to use “overwhelming military force” in self defense of their forces.”

    By the way, the U.S. forces that killed al-Baghdadi trained near Erbil, the capital Turkey of Iraqi Kurdistan.

    Your allies are the people who fight by your side; not those who belong to NATO, but turn around and secretly support ISIS.

  24. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “At least six Syrian regime soldiers were wounded and a dozen taken captive in clashes with Turkish forces and their Syrian militia proxies on Tuesday near Ras al-Ain, a war monitor reports. Russian military police also reportedly came under fire.

    “Heavy fighting erupted for the first time between the Syrian and Turkish armies,” the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reports.”

  25. Bitterlaw says:

    SDC – Do not worry. Trump and Rand Paul have everything under control.

  26. Bitterlaw says:

    The Labor leader wants to drop the voting age to 16 and allow EU citizens living in the UK to vote? Damn. That should be popular with…um…16 and 17 year olds and EU citizens.

  27. Tina says:

    I talks think of cavuto as a business reporter.

    As such, he not as good as the money honey (Maria b.) or joe Kernan.

    Maria B. Is a better reporter since she has diversified herself.

  28. Tina says:

    They are still investigation the Russian hoax. Everybody knows that corrupt Warner is running that committee.

    And where is Goober? Start doing subpoenas.

    I am a bit unimpressed by Trump’s campaign schedule ahead of the elections, tbh. I thought he would hold multiple events in all states to boost GOP turnout. Either he really couldn’t make the time or internal polling showed it not to be worth it – which would be a troubling sign.

  32. Bitterlaw says:

    I do not know what offices are up for this year’s election in other states, but in PA it is judges, school boards and local government races. I don’t view Trump not campaigning for theRadnor school board candidates as a sign he gave up on PA for 2020.

  33. Wes says:

    That raincloud manufacturer from RRH was talking about the three Southern gubernatorial races up next month, Bitter. Of course LA isn’t up till later in the month, and Republicans have already eroded much of Edwards’ support. I would guess Trump wants to hold off on any rallies there till the Thursday or Friday before the runoff.

    As far as MS and KY, Reeves is leading in the former while Bevin is on the upswing in the latter. Trump may not feel the need to carpet bomb the states when Republicans have already made great strides. He may feel—and I would agree if this is the case—doing a handful of late rallies may be enough to help Reeves and Bevin win.

    Let’s not forget RRH’s resident German Debbie Downer launched into a lengthy screed on Election Night 2016 telling us how Trump, despite leading Hillary in early returns, should go ahead and concede because Hillary would inevitably catch him. German Apocalypse then himself conceded and said he should quit making predictions.

  34. Phil says:

    Wes, yeah, RRH is the worst. Noted for throwing in the towel before the starting gun is even fired.

  35. VictrC says:

    Hmmmm kind of dead today. So, ill stir the pot.

    Anyone who wants to know just how bad things are going to get only has to look at the Houston Astros Asst GM who was fired for saying that he was glad they traded for a certain player in front of (directed at) some female reporter who wrote an article saying they shouldn’t have traded for him because he was involved in a domestic violence situation (which was eventually dropped though he did serve a suspension).

    OK, so the move was bone headed, but he was most likely a bit tipsy as it was during the pennant clinching celebration, but seriously, now Liberals can’t even stand when someone says something in their direction? This is the America Obama left us. The man’s life is ruined. He lost his job, if he has a family he has to find a way to support them. He will never get another job in baseball, much less at a company with this hanging over his head, when the man committed no crime. Still, forever he will be viewed under the lease of domestic abuse.

    Anyone think its going to get better with a leftist government and President? How long before the thought police come and your life is ruined over what you think??

  36. Bitterlaw says:

    Vic – I do not think that there is any doubt that the player committed the act. Victims refuse to press charges all the time for reasons stemming from fear to not wanting to lose the abuser’s income.

    You own a company. If one of your employees was accused of domestic abuse and then his manager started yelling at a board meeting covered by the press that he was glad he worked there, would either of them have a job the next day?

  37. Victrc says:

    Bitter. Thanks for the answer. I agree there was no doubt he did it, but he served his “sentence,” and as I understand, has been a good “citizen” since then.

    To answer your question, I would absolutely not fire the person. Let’s separate them into two categories.

    First, the one charged. Most likely I would never know about this domestic abuse situation because it wouldn’t come into play, but if it had, in this case I would have to support the legal system. If he was never charged and convicted then what grounds for termination would I have? He would have been charged, but dropped and have no conviction. What I would have to do it keep him under some kind of supervision to ensure that he was treating those in the work place correctly. He would be on a short leash.

    With regards to the guy yelling. Suspension. He didn’t commit the act of domestic abuse. I would first consider how termination would affect the rest of his life, over something that was obviously wrong, but, with the suspension I am sure would be corrected. Do you honestly think this person would have done the same thing again? No way. What on earth happened to measured discipline? Punishment fitting the crime.

    By terminating the guy yelling in such a public manner you have basically stained him for the rest of his life. Sorry, the punishment does not fit the crime. Suspension would be enough to deter said behavior, which is the reason for punishment, to ensure that negative behavior or rule breaking is not repeated. In today’s age where everything you do is written in permanent marker, and people only look for (and concentrate) on things you have done wrong, not your victories or strengths, staining someone forever for something like this is not a proper response, and as an owner, I have to consider all sides and all effects.

  38. jason says:

    I think that Jason will call Corey scum at some point. He just has not done it yet.”

    Never say never, but it is very unlikely. He is a sanctimonious, vindictive, petty, delusional ass who is almost always wrong but that does not make him scum.

    Of course, it was very unlikely I would ever vote for Trump.

  39. jason says:

    You own a company. If one of your employees was accused of domestic abuse and then his manager started yelling at a board meeting covered by the press that he was glad he worked there, would either of them have a job the next day?”

    If it was my company, I would fire the employee after it was determined he was actually guilty, but not his manager.

    If the manager actually defended domestic abuse, that is one thing, but saying the employee is a good employee, for example, should not be grounds for firing him.

    Sue me. It is my company.

    Steel tariffs were supposed to save the industry, but instead made things worse.

    Well, no kidding. I predicted that long ago. Tariffs never worked, and just because Trump implemented, that won’t change.

    Jason, Chicon once told me tariffs would work because it’s no longer 1930.

  51. jason says:

    Smarter than the average Democrat?

    Van Drew D -NJ

    “I would imagine that I’m not voting for it,” Van Drew told a reporter on Tuesday after being asked about the resolution proposed by Democratic leaders.

    “Obviously he’s going to be impeached here, and it will go to the Senate. I believe that in the Senate, he will be vindicated. So we will have the same president and the same candidate who has now been vindicated,” Van Drew also told CBS News on Tuesday.

    He added: “I’m not sure that’s what everybody wants as a result … And I also think we’ve spent a lot of money and a lot of time and haven’t been able to get a lot of things done.”

  52. jason says:

    Certainly smarter than the average Never Trumper.

  53. NYCmike says:

    Why is it that jason and Wes must lie about what people say?

    The tariff issue is not that simple, and they refuse to acknowledge that.

    I know I did not support tariffs on ALL foreign steel. It didn’t work for Reagan, it didn’t work for Bush, it isn’t working for Trump.

    I did support tariffs on some Chinese goods, as the status quo wasn’t working, as evidenced by the WTO judgments against China. Clearly, the jury is still out on the effectiveness of targeted tariffs, as opposed to tariffs which target whole industries.

  54. Wes says:

    Why does Mikey have such a low IQ?

    I never even mentioned our resident Deadender in my post.

  55. NYCmike says:

    You mentioned Chicon, and he never said what you said he said…..you dig?

  56. lisab says:

    us steel production is up 15% since 2016

  57. Wes says:

    He did actually say that when I drew the comparison to Smoot-Hawley, Mikey. You’re just a dumb ass.

  58. Phil says:

    What? The tolerant left? No way.

  59. dblaikie says:

    Well it seems to me that this impeachment nonsense has not had the effect desired by Nancy, Adam and company. Rasmussen has Trump back up to 47% approval (it was 43%). But I know the trolls and such deride Rasmussen, yet what will they say about the new USA Today/Suffolk poll that has Trump at 46%. And when put against a generic dem. Trump wins by one point.

    I know the perception is that Nancy runs her caucus with an iron fist and maybe she does. But this thing is not going her way. I now believe that there is a chance that she will have to postpone or pull this stupid bill before tomorrow.

  60. Hugh says:

    The dems hit their high watermark about a week ago. Bringing in one person after another repeating the same garbage is starting to wear very thin.

  61. John says:

    Two interesting economic indicators just released…

    ADP announced 125,000 jobs added in October to an economy that already has the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years.

    BREAKING: Here is the “whistleblower”. It confirms my posting here about two weeks ago! He’s a beauty(sarc)

    https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2019/10/30/whistleblower_exposed_close_to_biden_brennan_dnc_oppo_researcher_120996.html

  63. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    59. “Liberals attack Lindsey Graham for supposedly being gay and demand he out himself:”

    Its a “so what” issue. My personal philosophy about it was summed up pretty well by quote below:

    “Why is it a problem that for some people being gay means nothing more than who they have sex with? Their politics, their practice of religion, and the types of entertainment they enjoy may be completely unaffected by their sexual preference and they may appear to be more mainstream. Their sexuality may be way down the list of issues that are important to them. They may feel neither pride nor shame to be gay; it’s just the way it is and it’s no big deal. How is that self-loathing?”

    I don’t doubt that Sheeple, but I am glad the pretense that no one knows who the Whistleblower is can now be put to rest.

    Eric Ciaramella needs to be introduced to the world. All the folks need to know that his best friend works for Schiff, he is close to Brennan, worked for Biden and hates Trump. What a caring non partisan patriot who just wants to do what is right.

    NEW: Kamala Harris’ top bundlers are sending out smoke signals that they are struggling to raise cash as she dips in the polls and her campaign makes cuts to staff. In some cases, financiers are telling the campaign they won’t host events for her.

  84. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – The idea of a Deep State is based upon the idea that Federal employees would work after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends to secretly run the country. No chance of that happening.

  85. Tina says:

    Well, the Ny slimes claims there is a deep state.

    I claim that there was shenanigans involving the illegal campaign targeting of candiidate trump as well as a Russian hoax, a hoax the most corrupt Senate committee, SSIC, IS STILL “investigating.”

  86. NYCmike says:

    “Wes – The idea of a Deep State is based upon the idea that Federal employees would work after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends to secretly run the country. No chance of that happening.”

    -This is ridiculous, even for an A-Hole.

    All you need is a couple of people in leadership positions, and a couple of people who see them as their ticket for advancement, and there it is. Mix that along with a compliant press, and you very easily get a Deep State, in support of Democratic politicians.

    For Wes to compare this, at all, with Hillary’s “vast right-wing conspiracy” is also ridiculous.

    There was no conspiracy. It was a concerted effort by public individuals, such as those on talk radio and in the burgeoning internet chat forums, to uncover the malfeasance of the Clinton’s, and of Big Government in general.

  87. NYCmike says:

    Bitter must also think the police in Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, etc can’t solve the crime problem, and that there is no relationship between the drug dealers, the gangs, certain politically-connected individuals and some corrupt cops.

  90. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC just said there were a few bad actors. I said that months ago when I said the idea of some decades long overarching vast conspiracy was absurd.

  91. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    It can, and does in some cases, last for decades.

  92. dblaikie says:

    If Paul Sperry’s report is verified, especially his contacts with Schiff, tomorrows so-called impeachment vote is going to blow-up.

  93. Wes says:

    You are honestly one stupid sonofabitch, Mikey. Buying into some absurd conspiracy theory while claiming my comparison to Hillary’s paranoid declaration is ridiculous is the action of an absolutely moronic individual.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former CIA Director John Brennan said on Wednesday that at least some American voters were swayed as a result of Russia’s 2016 election interference operation, a statement that went further than the official assessments of U.S. intelligence agencies and lawmakers.

    Speaking alongside other former intelligence figures at the National Press Club in Washington, Brennan said he was “sure, personally, that those Russian efforts changed the mind of at least one voter.”

    “Whether it was one voter or a million voters, I don’t know,” he added.

    I think it is extremely simple, but I understand you have a lot of cognitive challenges.

    Nobody lied here, you have been supportive of Trump’s trade policy based on tariffs and trade wars.

    With impressive reasoning too. Basically it seems like you claim to oppose tariffs, but because Trump implemented them you now support them.

    But we can make it very simple for you to understand. Trump’s tariffs are no different than all the other tariffs that didn’t work either.

    Economist Paul Krugman, the longtime defender of global free trade, now admits that globalization has failed American workers.

    Krugman has never suffered fools gladly. The Nobel Prize-winning economist rose to international fame—and a coveted space on the New York Times op-ed page—by lacerating his intellectual opponents in the most withering way. In a series of books and articles beginning in the 1990s, Krugman branded just about everybody who questioned the rapid pace of globalization a fool who didn’t understand economics very well. “Silly” was a word Krugman used a lot to describe pundits who raised fears of economic competition from other nations, especially China. Don’t worry about it, he said: Free trade will have only minor impact on your prosperity.

    Now Krugman has come out and admitted, offhandedly, that his own understanding of economics has been seriously deficient as well. In a recent essay titled “What Economists (Including Me) Got Wrong About Globalization,” adapted from a forthcoming book on inequality, Krugman writes that he and other mainstream economists “missed a crucial part of the story” in failing to realize that globalization would lead to “hyperglobalization” and huge economic and social upheaval, particularly of the industrial middle class in America. And many of these working-class communities have been hit hard by Chinese competition, which economists made a “major mistake” in underestimating, Krugman says.

    It was quite a “whoops” moment, considering all the ruined American communities and displaced millions of workers we’ve seen in the interim.

    113: lisab could use some reading comprehension lessons. The scientists are looking at causes of the last ice age. So, “increased Antarctic sea ice may have contributed to past ice ages” is their conclusion. Thanks, captain obvious. However, sea ice is not currently increasing so this is theoretical at this point.

    I assume this is the article she refers to. https://www.foxnews.com/science/explosion-antarctic-sea-ice-ice-age

  122. Paul says:

    113: lisab, I see that the Daily Mail article about the study is a complete distortion and begins with the incorrect statement that sea ice is increasing while in their last paragraph they explain that sea ice is the lowest point it has ever been.

    So, perhaps you simply read the Daily Mail and your reading comprehension is fine. Just don’t read the Daily Mail anymore.

    Let’s see what happens on the Stalinist style “investigation” kangaroo “impeachment vote” today.

    I am hoping for 0 GOP defections and a handful of Dem defections.

  133. Phil says:

    Essentially a straight party line vote. Good luck with that one. 31 Democrats representing Trump districts – vast majority were elected by four points are less.

    BTW, the second ranking member on the Rules Committee that put together this “resolution”? Alcee Hastings. Former US District Judge impeached and removed from the bench by the Democratic controlled House and Senate in 1989 for bribery. You couldn’t make this up if you tried.

  134. jason says:

    In a nutshell this is what it is all about:

    “The entire impeachment inquiry is the establishment in Washington D.C. letting the American people know that if they ever vote for someone the establishment doesn’t like, they will just beat you over the head, stop the agenda you voted for, and ultimately, usurp your vote to show you who really runs this country.”

  136. Phil says:

    Have fun with that, Joe. Enjoy.

  137. jason says:

    31 Democrats representing Trump districts – vast majority were elected by four points are less.”

    Most will have to take their chances on a yes vote because of pressure from their base.

    I doubt it will get 50 votes in the Senate.

  139. dblaikie says:

    So far one dem has voted no on impeachment rules. Nancy is keeping them on a tighter rein than I thought she would. No GOP person has voted yes. Still about 60 votes outstanding.

  141. Phil says:

    This is going to stroke Republican turnout in 2020 through the roof….just like it’s putting Trump’s fundraising over the moon over the last three months.

    Trump got outspent 2-1 by Hillary in 2016. He will actually outspend the Democratic nominee this election cycle. Money isn’t everything, but he’s a lot better off with it this election than the last.

  142. VictrC says:

    This is infuriating because its an absolute coup d’etat. Plain and simple.

    There is NOTHING impeachable that happened with the Ukraine. Dems are now reduced to claiming its the Emulsions clause that he violated and so its impeachable. BS pure and simple. What gain did he get? What financial reward did he receive? And when can a President not ask for a foreign nation to investigate corruption when you are going to hand them over hundreds of millions of dollars?

    This is a farce. Wether you are a Never Trumper or not you should be enraged, because if this happens, this will become the norm when the left doesn’t like the results of an election.

  143. dblaikie says:

    The process is described, and the time when it should be used is outlined. This doesn’t meet the criteria, or close to it. Since before he took office your side has been trying to overturn the results of the election. First with the proven false Russia allegations, and on and on. Nothing here warrants impeachment. Everyone knows its just an attempt to paint it as if he is guilty of something so they can win the 2020 Presidential election and so that they can try (in their minds() to taint marginal Republicans who might be vulnerable with the stain of impeachment.

    It’s a coup.

  161. michael corleone says:

    Bitter please help me understand why the PA GOP just passed the ballot harvesting enabling act of 2019? Under this bill PA expanded no excuse absentee voting, extended registration window from 30 days to 15 days prior to election, established permanent ballot harvest- I mean permanent absentee lists where people automatically get ballots, and changed the deadline for submitting absentees from Friday before the election to 8 pm on election night. Aside from the fact that mail in balloting is riddled with a potential for fraud and makes a mockery of the secret ballot, this new law will almost assure us that we will not know the winner of the 2020 election on election night. Under the new law, all absentee ballots are counted at a central location and not at the precinct, and they have 3 days to count the results. If PA and Az are close, we won’t know the President. Utter disaster. And this was done by GOP.

  162. Wes says:

    The Constitution says the House can impeach the President, Vice-President, members of Congress, and judges for high crimes and misdemeanors. The Senate will then vote to convict and remove from office or acquit.

    Show me the high crimes and misdemeanors Trump committed to merit impeachment.

  163. lisab says:

    The phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors” in the context of impeachments has an ancient English history, first turning up in the impeachment of the Earl of Suffolk in 1388.

    The Earl was considered rude and boorish by the other Earls, who actually wanted the Earl of Waterford to rule, so they impeached the Earl of Suffolk because they “did not kike him”.

  164. lisab says:

    “did not ** like ** him”.

  165. Tina says:

    This was a vote to retroactively grant due process.

  167. VictrC says:

    Wes

    Liberals have learned a new word…Emoluments. That is their claim now, that not only was asking the Ukraine to investigate Biden (not true, he asked them to investigate corruption as it pertained to the 2016 election) but now at applying it to his hotels. They claim that because any time a foreign dignitary stays at one of the hotels with his name on it that its a single and separate violation and therefore he’s in gross violation.

    Obviously they haven’t read the clause or understand it, but it demonstrates how far they are reaching.

    NSC Official Tim Morrison To Schiff: Nothing Illegal In Trump-Zelensky Call

  178. Tina says:

    From that article

    Pretty clear that Taylor lied as did Felony 4 Hillary

    Morrison also pointed out key factual inaccuracies in testimony provided by William Taylor, a State Department official who works in the U.S. embassy in Kiev, Ukraine. Morrison said that, contrary to Taylor’s claims, Morrison never met with the Ukrainian National Security advisor in his private hotel room.

    Morrison also said Taylor falsely claimed that Ambassador Gordon Sondland demanded a public statement from the Ukrainian president committing to investigate Burisma, a controversial Ukrainain energy company that paid Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter millions of dollars to sit on its board.

    “My recollection is that Ambassador Sondland’s proposal to [Ukrainian National Security Advisor Andriy] Yermak was that it could be sufficient if the new Ukrainian prosecutor general — not President Zelensky — would commit to pursue the Burisma investigation,” Morrison testified.

    “Count this initial vote as a win for the president, then, however modest and fleeting it might prove to be. Trump’s critics will dismiss the vote as a procedural affair, which is almost always a straight party-line vote in the House. But in other ways, this resolution—merely affirming an impeachment investigation, not judging any articles themselves—should have been the easiest for Republicans to go along with. Instead, lawmakers once again retreated to their corners of comfort. Trump will begin the formal impeachment process with his party still behind him, the House having sent a signal of GOP unity to potential wobblers in the Senate.”

    Morrison’s testimony today is devastating to the false Democrat narrative that anything illegal or improper happened on the July 25 Trump-Zelensky call. It’s also devastating to the credibility of certain other witnesses who have asserted there was anything illegal or improper.

  206. jason says:

    This should be the end of the charade, but the Dems dug too big a hole to climb out.

    “Morrison also pointed out key factual inaccuracies in testimony provided by William Taylor, a State Department official who works in the U.S. embassy in Kiev, Ukraine. Morrison said that, contrary to Taylor’s claims, Morrison never met with the Ukrainian National Security advisor in his private hotel room.

    Morrison also said Taylor falsely claimed that Ambassador Gordon Sondland demanded a public statement from the Ukrainian president committing to investigate Burisma, a controversial Ukrainain energy company that paid Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter millions of dollars to sit on its board.

    “My recollection is that Ambassador Sondland’s proposal to [Ukrainian National Security Advisor Andriy] Yermak was that it could be sufficient if the new Ukrainian prosecutor general — not President Zelensky — would commit to pursue the Burisma investigation,” Morrison testified.

    Morrison testified that the transcript of the phone call that was declassified and released by Trump in late September “accurately and completely reflects the substance of the call,” and that he was concerned that the substance of the call would be leaked to the media. Morrison said he immediately informed a NSC lawyer about his concerns that the phone call would be leaked. Democrats have alleged that security measures taken to prevent leaks of the top secret call transcript prove that Trump should be removed from office.

    He also told lawmakers that the national security process worked as designed in the case of the military funding that Congress appropriated for Ukraine.

    “I am pleased our process gave the president the confidence he needed to approve the release of the security sector assistance,” he said. “I am proud of what I have been able, in some small way, to help the Trump administration accomplish.”

  207. Phil says:

    222. “-I linked to a story last night……come on, let’s hear it FOR THE GOATS!”

    Goats are being used throughout California now, but guess who opposes their use? The green zealots. Goats eat native species, so eco-loons oppose them. (never mind that fire seems to burns the above ground sections of native species that goats eat.

    An example is Catalina Island.

    There had been a population of wild goats on the Catalina since the 19th century. But they had to go because they ate sensitive plants. Helicopters were used to shoot thousands of them. Then guess what:

    “Over the last 15 years, several fires have affected the island’s ecosystems. In July 1999, a 300-acre fire caused by an escaped illegal campfire burned several oak and ironwood groves above Goat Harbor. Countless other shrubs that offer wildlife food and shelter were also lost. Ironwoods are a particular concern due to their very limited range. These trees are found primarily on northeast facing slopes on Catalina Island and nowhere else in the world.

    The fires on Catalina Island over the last 15 years have been massive — they had wide media coverage.

    But still, here is what the Catalina Conservancy website says about using goats:

    “Can grazing goats help stop Catalina fire hazards?

    Absolutely not. While domesticated goats have been used in controlled environments to clear vegetation, they are not an appropriate solution for a nature preserve like Catalina. Goats are indiscriminate eaters and Catalina supports large numbers of endemic, rare, and endangered plants that are particularly vulnerable to introduced herbivores.”

    “Dick Morris, who advised Bill Clinton in his 1978 campaign for Arkansas governor, and again in his 1996 White House re-election effort, says it is his “feeling” that Hillary wants to run.

    “She feels entitled to do it,” he said on John Catsimatidis’ Sunday morning radio show from New York. “She feels compelled to do it. She feels that God put her on the Earth to do it, but she’s hesitant because she realizes the timing is bad.””

    Agree on the timing issue. Any year with a presidential election is a bad time for Hillary Clinton to run for president. She should run in off-years.

    Harris 31, Trump 36
    Buttigieg 29, Trump 35

    Bernie Sanders is claiming to be a Democrat and an Independent at the same time, From Wikpedia”

    “On the 2016 campaign trail, he affirmed that he was a Democrat running for the Democratic nomination.[289] But both his Senate website and press materials continued to label him as an “independent” during and after the campaign.[290][291] His party status became ambiguous once again in March 2019 when he signed a formal “loyalty pledge” to the Democratic Party stating that he is a member of the party and will serve as a Democrat if elected president. He signed the pledge the day after he signed paperwork to run as an independent for reelection to the Senate in 2024.”

    When he first announced he was running in 2016, the Democrats would have saved a lot of grief by demanding Sanders unequivocally become a Democrat, or else he would be disqualified from running.

  238. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    If Bullock was smart he would become a Republican. He has no future as a Democrat, and the Republicans are going to need new leaders once Trump is no longer president. If Trump could switch parties, Bullock can too.
