    If we weren’t in a kangaroo court this should end this charade.

    Q: Did POTUS ever tell you “personally” about any preconditions for aid to be released? For a White House meeting?

    Sondland:”No…personally no.”

  2. jason says:

    Sondland admits nobody ever told him about any quid pro quo, but he “assumed” it was.

    He admits that in a conversation with Trump, where he asked Trump point blank “what do you want from the Ukraine” Trump said “nothing, there is no quid pro quo”

    The rest is speculation, hearsay and BS.

  3. jason says:

    Won’t make the MSM headlines:

    “Ukrainian members of parliament have demanded the presidents of Ukraine and the United States, Volodymyr Zelensky and Donald Trump, investigate suspicions of the legalization of $7.4 billion by the ‘family’ of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych through the American investment fund Franklin Templeton Investments, which they said has ties to the U.S. Democratic Party.”

    ??? the Democrats are now quoting Michael Cohen talking about President Trump speaking “in code” and Sondland replies all his conversations with President Trump were direct. Hilarious they tried to pull that. They know his testimony destroys their narrative.

  11. NYCmike says:

    Waingro,

    I will not be convinced that he will win re-election until all the votes have been counted and the totals are 1) outside the range of Democratic (with #NeverTrumper assistance) fraud practices, and 2) the fat lady sings (Stacey Abrams?).

  12. dblaikie says:

    7 If Trump is in that good of shape in Wisconsin it counts as the big news of the day! By the way in the same poll concerning impeachment 53% of the registered voters are against impeachment only 40% are in favor. A continued trend over the last week. Thank you Adam Schiff for your support of Donald Trump.

    No quid pro quo? Too bad! America should not throw money at corrupt or outright hostile governments no questions asked! Considering that the Obama administration had a hand in the Ukrainian coup to expand globalist controlled zone in Europe and meddled in the Ukrainian affairs, the current administration in Ukraine can only be more corrupt than any previous one. There is food for thought whether America should be recognizing the current administration in Ukraine.

    From Politico:

    POLITICO and Morning Consult surveyed registered voters beginning after the second public hearing of the impeachment inquiry, and the poll results may indicate that support for the inquiry has reached its peak after steadily building over the past several months. The results were largely driven by independent voters, among whom support dropped by 7 points over the past week.

    “Voter opposition to the impeachment inquiry is at its highest point since Morning Consult and POLITICO began tracking the issue,” said Tyler Sinclair, Morning Consult’s vice president. “A key driver for this shift appears to be independents. Today, 47 percent of independents oppose the impeachment inquiry, compared to 37 percent who said the same one week ago.”

    The founder of Extinction Rebellion has show why many in the green movement today are referred to as eco-Nazis:

    “The British co-founder of Extinction Rebellion sparked outrage in Germany today by referring to the Holocaust as ‘just another f***ery in human history’.

    Roger Hallam compared the murder of six million Jewish people at the hands of the Nazis to other historical massacres and claimed that memory of the Shoah – or Holocaust – was holding Germany back.

    The 53-year-old former organic farmer was quickly condemned by Extinction Rebellion groups in Germany after his interview with a newspaper in the country.

    In an English-language interview, he told Die Zeit: ‘The extremity of a trauma…can create a paralysis in actually learning the lessons from it.

    ‘The fact of the matter is, millions of people have been killed in vicious circumstances on a regular basis throughout history.’”

  21. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    22. ,,more-

    “He said: ‘I want to fully acknowledge the unimaginable suffering caused by the Nazi holocaust, that led to all of Europe saying, ”never again”.

    ‘But it is happening again, on a far greater scale, and in plain sight. The global north is pumping lethal levels of CO2 into the atmosphere and simultaneously erecting ever greater barriers to immigration, turning whole regions of the world into death zones. That is the grim reality.

    ‘We are allowing our governments to willingly, and in full knowledge of the science, engage in genocide of our young people and those in the global south by refusing to take emergency action to reduce carbon emissions.'”

    “How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood!” insisted teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg at the United Nations. “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction!”

    “The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change!” adds Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

    Then there is Joe Biden. He was vice president for eight years until 2016, and a leading senator for 36 years – and after almost 45 years of public service, he is now telling us the world is doomed.

    ““We have 12 years to act!” says Joe Biden.”

    he Vice President never had a conversation with Gordon Sondland about investigating the Bidens, Burisma, or the conditional release of financial aid to Ukraine based upon potential investigations.

    “Ambassador Gordon Sondland was never alone with Vice President Pence on the September 1 trip to Poland. This alleged discussion recalled by Ambassador Sondland never happened.

    “Multiple witnesses have testified under oath that Vice President Pence never raised Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden, Crowdstrike, Burisma, or investigations in any conversation with Ukrainians or President Zelensky before, during, or after the September 1 meeting in Poland.”

    All I see is the Democrats walking alright. They are walking the plank.

    Frankly, I tend to believe you lisab, but after today I think that there is a slim chance that the Democrat vote against Impeachment is going to rise. These members from strong Trump districts will not be able to endure this for long. They may vote for impeachment but it will be nothing but a Pyrrhic victory and a vote that will have an embarrassing number of democrats not going along with this whole farce.

    Man Feels The Need To Clarify He Doesn’t Support Trump Before Every Mundane Statement

    WINDSOR HEIGHTS, IA—Sources close to local man Aaron Dudley confirmed Wednesday that the man somehow feels the need to clarify that he doesn’t support President Trump before every single statement he makes.

    Dudley told reporters the move is just to make sure no one mistakes him for a Trump supporter when he says he likes a particular movie or comments on how nice the weather is on a given morning.

    “Look, I’m not saying I support President Trump, but I thought Captain Marvel was just OK,” he told a friend over coffee Wednesday. “I’m not a Trump supporter though! I’m not. Just wanted to be clear on that.”

    The man is always sure to frame each statement in the context that he’s not a Trump supporter, whether he’s having a casual conversation with his wife, making an observation about the text in a Bible study, or ordering tacos.

    “Did I mention that I don’t support Trump? Just want to be clear on that before I order my value meal,” he reportedly said to a Taco Bell employee. “Not a Trump supporter.” He also told another employee he didn’t support Trump while asking for more hot sauce “just in case you got that impression or something.”

    At publishing time, Dudley had told a friend that he’s not a Trump supporter but he’s excited that baseball season is almost here again.

  37. lisab says:

    “They may vote for impeachment but it will be nothing but a Pyrrhic victory and a vote that will have an embarrassing number of democrats not going along with this whole farce.”

    it will be a pyrrhic loss for our democracy

    but i think they will do it.

    the thrill they get from impeaching trump is the same thrill they got from supporting clinton. they just want to beat republicans.

    they don’t exactly have core democratic principles

  38. Phil says:

    I’m trying to imagine past honorable liberals like Hubert Humphrey looking down on the present Democratic Party and wondering what he’d be thinking. Pretty sure I know. He would be disgusted.

  39. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    34. If you go to Democratic websites, such as Nate Silver, you can see their hope is that the impeachment hearings will turn independents and other voters against from Trump. This is about weakening Trump so that he will not be re-elected in 2020.

    The Democrats know Trump will not be convicted by the Senate; they are not interested in actual evidence that would be admissible in court. Presumptions made by witnesses are being treated as actual proof of guilt. Their trying to pick up the pieces of Mueller’s failed investigation.

  40. Phil says:

    SDC, your last paragraph sums up the Democrats strategy and their desired result of this impeachment fraud perfectly.

    impeachment was not made to score political points

  42. Wes says:

    On impeachment, Dems have one mentality:

    The ends justify the means.

    The irony is that Trump did enough damage to himself with his famously eager Twitter account and propensity for asinine statements to ensure his own defeat.

    The Dem base is howling for Pelosi and Company to remove him early though for multifarious phantom crimes and minor transgressions they would have—and, indeed, have—overlooked in politicians of their own party.

    Trump has made them absolutely and utterly unhinged. In the process, they’v become obsessed with removing him from office by means outside the actual political process.

    Trump is still Trump, so I have no reason to believe he won’t continue to make stupid momentum-killing mistakes like his tweet during a former employee’s testimony, but Dems by their Kafkaesque fervor to remove Trump May trigger a pox-on-both-your-houses mentality among voters otherwise ready to remove Trump from office at the ballot box next year.

    Both can be true.

  48. jason says:

    Morning, ma.

  49. Paul says:

    lisab,
    Where do you get that John Locke would be against impeachment, anyway? It sounds like he is in favor of removing authority if they become criminal.

    “Where-ever law ends, tyranny begins, if the law be transgressed to another’s harm; and whosoever in authority exceeds the power given him by the law, and makes use of the force he has under his command, to compass that upon the subject, which the law allows not, ceases in that to be a magistrate; and, acting without authority, may be opposed, as any other man, who by force invades the right of another,” (Locke, Second Treatise of Government).

  50. Wes says:

    The fact the other candidates are dropping out means Karen Handel is the strongest candidate the GOP has.

    ¡JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA!

    You clearly weren’t paying attention in 2017, Jason, when despite being the only candidate to have appeared on the ballot districtwide in the primary, Handel got 19% of the vote and followed that up with an anemic 3.6% victory in the runoff in a district no Republican had lost since 1976.

    She followed that up with an outright loss to a political liberal—again in a district no Republican had lost since 1976—in 2018.

    If Handel is the best the GAGOP has to offer then Republicans deserve to lose that seat again. With her on the ballot, defeat is a virtually inevitable outcome.

  51. jason says:

    Impeachment is a part of our Constitution. Whether or not these charges are worthy of impeachment is a separate question.”

    So how about a bet, if you find any post here where anyone said impeachment is not part of the Constitution, you win, if you don’t, I win.

    That’s like saying executions are a part of the legal framework so it’s ok to execute innocent people.

    And it’s not even a question of whether the charges are worthy of impeachment or not. The problem here is the kangaroo court and Stalinist process being used to determine that.

    You can start by explaining why Rs are not allowed to call their own witnesses and why Schiff was allowed to leak selective, out of context, testimomy from secret, closed door hearings.

  52. jason says:

    Dang Ma, that is good bait. Brought in a whopper wesfish in what, 8 minutes!

  53. Phil says:

    So what’s Schiff rolling out under the Big Top today?

    Can’t wait.

  54. jason says:

    That was a joke, wes fell for it, I have no idea this time around who the best R candidate would be for that district.

    But as far as the rest of the garbage wes wrote, he conveniently left out some major facts.

    Handel WAS the best candidate the Rs could field in 2017, and the reason she only got 19% in the primary was because there were a lot of candidates running. Then her “anemic 3.6%” victory was in fact pretty impressive given that her race was nationalized against an extremely well funded (over $30 million) Dem, a darling of the MSM, assisted thousands of volunteers from outside the district. And she lost a close election in 2018 in a year that Rs lost 42 seats.

    So let’s see. If Handel is such a bad candidate, maybe Wes can explain why people are dropping out rather than run against her.

  55. jason says:

    So what’s Schiff rolling out under the Big Top today? ”

    He has a guy who overheard things in a conversation that Sondland had with Trump that even Sondland doesn’t remember hearing.

  56. Wes says:

    In impeachment, the House serves as a grand jury engaged in measuring the weight of evidence against the accused officeholder while the Senate serves as a petite jury which convicts or exonerates the accused.

    During this trial, the House is violating due process in its hamfisted attempts to find a crime to charge Trump with and is making more of a mockery of the process than Newt Gingrich did 20 years ago.

    It truly is an utterly appalling debacle that will accomplish nothing.

  57. jason says:

    wes, I haven’t been following that district. If you have a better candidate than Handel running in the district who you think can beat the Dem, let me know and I will send him/her a check. I would like to see the Rs win the district back, that is the bottom line.

  58. dblaikie says:

    Wes, I got to hand it to you, what an elegant way to get out of your hard, take no prisoners stand that Trump had absolutely no chance of reelection. I agree with your view, by the way, that the Dems would over reach on impeachment and imperial their own chances in 2020. However, my friend, that is my entire point. You cannot speak definitively in 2018 about 2020. In short, stuff happens.

    When the DOJIG report comes out that will shake things up. When the Congress finally passes the new trade bill with Canada and Mexico that will shake things up. If a trade deal is made with China that will shake things up. And, oh yes, I agree with you if Trump makes some sort of stupid inane tweet that will shake things up. Welcome to the 2020 election.

  59. jason says:

    During this trial, the House is violating due process in its hamfisted attempts to find a crime to charge Trump with and is making more of a mockery of the process than Newt Gingrich did 20 years ago.”

    Well said. I apologize for saying wes is always wrong.

    Oh wait, did I say that?

  60. Wes says:

    Jason, Handel’s opponent was a carpetbagging deadbeat Star Wars cosplayer. She was the former Secretary of State of Georgia. She trailed him for most of the runoff period until the lunatic in VA tried to kill Republican members of Congress.

    She still couldn’t even get to a 4% margin of victory against a 30-year-old Star Wars-cosplaying leech who lived outside the district.

    None of the Republicans who’ve abandoned the race has been particularly impressive though a potentially solid businesswoman is still in the race.

  61. dblaikie says:

    The worst mistake the Democrats have made with this Impeachment nonsense is put Adam Schiff in charge. To put it mildly he reeks and oozes sleaze.

  62. jason says:

    hen the DOJIG report comes out that will shake things up. When the Congress finally passes the new trade bill with Canada and Mexico that will shake things up. If a trade deal is made with China that will shake things up. ”

  63. jason says:

    Jason, Handel’s opponent was a carpetbagging deadbeat Star Wars cosplayer.”

    He was a moron, no doubt. But he had 30 million to spend, unlimited free and positive press, and an army of volunteer moonbats flooding the district.

    Sometimes idiots make formidable candidates. Ossoff was a strong candidate not because he was necessarily a good candidate, but because of the funding and support he had in a nationalized race.

    I agree it does give us an insight into Trump hater Wallace’s mind as far as how he thinks impeachment is playing…..not well and that is starting to dawn on Mr Wallace. Yesterday afternoon did not go as planned.

    Dems don’t need Rs to pass a censure motion in the House.

    It will probably even get a few votes from weak kneed Rs.

    Personally, although I see Phil’s point about a Senate trial, I would prefer not to see Trump impeached.

    Not so much because of Trump per se, but because of the precedent it would set for future impeachments, it would just become a weapon of choice to try to overturn the results of elections and impeach Presidents for policy differences.

    “It comes as the stock market is hitting new highs, and unemployment is at a low for several groups.

    “Meanwhile, Gallup found that Trump’s approval rating is at a near high of 43% for the year. The last time he was at that level was before the Ukraine phone call emerged.

    “Most importantly, Republicans still have strong support for the president, at 90%.”

Peterson in Minn is in a district Trump carried by 30 points. He’s a no. The gentleman from NJ has signaled he’s a no. Depends on how many Nancy thinks she wants to protect. She wants to give cover to as many as possible but not let too many defect because it will look bad. My guess, in the end there will be a minimum of 6 and as many as 10 Democrats that defect in the end.

The gal from Arizona who has taken pains to appear moderate is a distinct possibility. Tester because he is from Montana is another possibility. My prediction is, let’s say 44 votes for conviction and 56 no’s.

    Frankly, this going down that bad doesn’t look so hot. Don’t know what Democrats think they are getting out of such a one sided vote to acquit with not a shred of bipartisan support in either House. I don’t care what Chis Wallace thinks.

    I think Pelosi is not going to be able go give special dispensation on impeachment. If she really thinks there are 10 votes against she might go for censure instead. A close vote in the House would be embarrassing for the Dems, just like if 5 Rs defected in the Senate it would be embarrassing for the GOP. Manchin might be the lone Dem to vote against. Jones has probably already given up.

    Heh, SDC, we agree on Jones, I had not ready your post.

  136. Phil says:

    That could be, SD. He’s not stupid and knows he’s out the door in November anyway vs Sessions especially with a Republican turnout in a presidential year. Depends on what he sees as his future. If he has any aspirations for future statewide office in Alabama, he’s a no. He has to be. If he sees as his future a job at MSNBC or, say, a position, in a future Democratic administration he could very well say screw it and vote to remove. My guess though is e votes to acquit to preserve that one in a thousand chance for re-election knowing that no national Democrat is going to hold it against him for voting that way given the electoral fix he’s in.

  137. Tina says:

    The problem with Erick Erickson is that he has cried wolf with them. He bought the original whistleblower complaint.

    “WASHINGTON — Former Independent Counsel Ken Starr told PJM that President Donald Trump has not committed an impeachable offense and that House Democrats are “nowhere near” having the “most convincing case” that the president is “unit to serve” in office.

    Starr agued that Democrats are using impeachment as a “tool of expressing” their “disapprobation of a controversial president.”

    “This is impeachment in search of a rationale. There’s no clear compelling — I’ve called it the John Dean moment — that here’s someone who is in the Oval Office plotting a criminal offense. That was enough to cause people on both sides of the aisle to say Richard Nixon needs to go,” Starr said during an interview at the Federalist Society’s National Lawyers Convention over the weekend. “Now we know, in another constitutional moment, the impeachment of Bill Clinton, that he was guilty of felonies but that was not enough to remove him from office. And by the way one of the grounds that we submitted was abuse of power.”

I asked about vulnerable seats and he said they have no vulnerable seats. They are legitimately planning on picking up at least 20 seats next nov. we even bet on it and he said easiest bet he’s ever made.

    They honestly believe they are going to flip the Senate, though he wasn’t so sure of that since he’s in the House.

    They live in delusion land.

    Some stats some of you might find interesting which will be relevant to the House impeachment vote.

    There are a total of 31 districts Trump carried now represented by Democrats.

    A little less than half of these districts Trump carried by 3 or less percent.

    Trump carried 8 of the 31 districts by double digits. 7 of the 8 by 10 to 13 points in addition to Peterson’s district that Trump carried by 31

    Based on this I can see maybe a total of 6 or 7 total Democratic defections. In addition to the two already announced I see Horn in Okl 5, Cunningham SC 1, NM 2, plus one more as definitely being allowed by Pelosi to defect.

    Who is to be the judge of whether the monarch or legislature have acted contrary to their trust? That they have so acted is the sort of thing that can be spread around among the people by discontented and factious men, when all the king has done is to make use of his legitimate prerogative.

    To this I reply,The people should be judge; for who should judge whether a trustee or deputy has acted well and according to the trust reposed in him, if not the person who deputes him? Having deputed him, he must have still a power to discard him when he fails in his trust.

    Even moderate Dem congressmen I know, who are reasonable and moderate by current standards lose their minds at the mere mention of his name. He gets red in the face and veins bulge.

I hated more than anything I have ever done in my life of having to make that choice to end her life at that moment, hoping she understood I did it to stop her pain once she got blood clots in her lungs and could hardly breathe.

    It’s been almost 4 months since I put my pooch to rest after her long life, as she just started her 18th year. Not a day goes by that I am not reminded of her multiple times a day. A dog is not a human child but a bond with a dog can be just as strong as they put so much faith and dependence in you and seek nothing from you but your acceptance of them as part of your life. I walked my dog around 15,000 times in the nearly 2 decades I had with her and I took her nearly everywhere with me so in essence she was like an inseparable child so I understand the deep remorse of saying good bye to a splendid and loyal companion. Having many wonderful memories, pictures, and videos does not replace the warmth of them staring in your eyes or the therapeutic effect of petting them as they seek your approval for just being there.

    Utah Woman Charged With Lewdness After Being Topless In Her Own Home

    A Utah woman has been charged with lewdness in her own home after her stepchildren walked into the room and saw her bare chest.

    Buchanan and her husband had been installing drywall in the garage and had taken off their shirts that were itchy from the fibers, she told The Salt Lake Tribune.

    When her stepchildren, aged 9, 10 and 13, walked in, she “explained she considers herself a feminist and wanted to make a point that everybody should be fine with walking around their house or elsewhere with skin showing,” her lawyers wrote in court documents,

    Now the state has charged Buchanan with three charges of lewdness involving a child. The charge is a Class A misdemeanor.

    The pro-impeach The Hill is clearly horrified at the latest poll numbers on impeachment:

    “A new national survey finds independent voters leading a sharp swing in opposition to impeachment, the second major poll to produce those findings this week.

    The latest national poll from Emerson College finds 45 percent oppose impeaching President Trump, against 43 percent who support it. That’s a 6-point swing in support from October, when 48 percent of voters supported impeachment and only 44 percent opposed.

    More importantly, the poll shows more independents now oppose impeachment than support it, a significant change from Emerson’s polling in October. The new poll found 49 percent oppose impeachment compared to 34 percent who support it. In October, 48 percent of independents polled supported impeachment, against 39 percent who opposed.

    Since October, Emerson has found Trump’s job approval rating jump by 5 points, from 43 percent to 48 percent.

    This is the second poll this week to show voters are increasingly likely to oppose impeachment, despite wall-to-wall media coverage of the House hearings that have produced bombshell testimony about how Trump threatened to withhold financial aid to Ukraine if the country did not open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, a top contender for the Democratic presidential nomination.”

    And of course where in the “bombshell” testimonies did anyone actually say they heard the President “threaten to withhold financial aid”?

  178. jason says:

    Peggy Noonan doesn’t want a senate trial because “no one is disputing the charges”.

    Translation: she doesn’t want the charges disputed.

  179. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Here is the character under FBI investigation for the FISA transgression. Kevin Clinesman of Peter Strozok fame. I remember his anti-Trump e-mails with Strozok and Lisa Page after Trump’s 2016 victory.

    One note of caution: the article outing the transgressor concludes that the Horowitz Report could be relatively mild due to a paragragh in the Washington Post article that claims that the initial stage of the FBI investigation was kosher.

    #182
    :should be “Clinesmith:

  181. jason says:

    There is obviously a strategy by the MSM on this to get out in front of the story so they can claim “old news, move on” when it comes out.

    If this guy was pro-Trump caught altering docs, he would be “high level”. Since he isn’t, he is “low level”, “already left the FBI” etc.

  184. dblaikie says:

    I have learned in the last three years to trust nothing that comes out of CNN and the Washington Post. We have three scenarios here: 1. The Steele Dossier was not the major piece of evidence for the FISA applications. 2. Horowitz believes the Steele Dossier is verified. 3. The Washington Post and CNN are whitewashing this story. I don’t know about you but I chose 3.

    By the way on Fox and Friends this morning President Trump seemed to be in a rather good mood. He doesn’t seem to be too worried to me about the last two weeks. For me the big new coming out of the interview is that he wants, is looking forward, can hardly wait for a trial in the Senate. I believe this is a classic case of you better be careful of what you ask for. The whistle blower, Schiff, Hunter and all the others better lawyer up even more when the Senate Trial starts. Pass the popcorn!!

    But having a Senate trial is just why this group of clowns may (odds still against) end this sad chapter before we get this show in the Senate.

  185. Phil says:

    Support for impeachment has been maxed out with Democratic voters,

    Support is bleeding indies.

    Republican opposition is solid. Efforts to split off Republican support has been a total failure.

    Democrats have no where to go but to continue the impeachment process. They can’t take an off ramp at this point without losing face and They’ve gone too far for that. They made their bed and now have no choice but to lay in it.

  186. Phil says:

    I’m sure Democratic freshmen congressmen Cunningham, Horn, and Small are looking forward to the House impeachment vote. All, won by half a percent or less
    in heavy Trump districts

    SC-1. Cunningham. Trump carried her district by 13 points

    Okl – 5. Horn. Trump carried her district by 13 points.

    NM – 2 Small. trump carried the district by 11 points.

    All three send out a hearty “gee thanks” to Adam and Nancy.

  187. Phil says:

    Four other freshmen Democratic congressmen who won narrow victories in double digit Trump districts also send their thanks to Nancy. Nancy says stick your neck out for an unpopular district wide impeachment vote that will go nowhere in the Senate. Sure, Nancy. Thanks for giving us this opportunity to walk the plank for no good reason. Great strategy!

  188. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #190- Phil
    Good comments above, but I will bet a dollar to a donut that these at-risk Democrats will try to straddle the issue by voting yes on some of the impeachment counts and no on others.
    They are a devious bunch!

  189. Phil says:

    You are probably right, Sheeple, but that won’t do any good. The ads against them next November will be -Representative Horn voted to impeach the President – and that ad will be based on truth. Trying to explain that she “voted against several of the other articles” won’t save her.

  190. dblaikie says:

    But for these Congresspeople in Trump districts it doesn’t end with their yes vote on any article. Their nightmares will continue with the Senate trail which will be a disaster for them and the whole Party. I have to wonder how many of them are going to walk the plank for Nancy?

  191. jason says:

    I think the Senate trial might be bad for the Dems, but I still wish we would stop the Kabuki Theater.

    Count me out of those “looking forward to the Senate trial”.

    I think impeaching Trump for this garbage is a terrible precedent and makes a mockery of the Constitution, so there is nothing for me to look forward to.

  192. dblaikie says:

    I wonder how many will stick with Nancy after December 9 when the DOJIG report is released?

  193. jason says:

    Sorry to rain on the parade, but I don’t think in November running ads “he voted to impeach Trump” will be that relevant anymore.

    On the other hand, I don’t think “she voted not to impeach Trump” will be that relevant in Senate races either.

    This will probably be wrapped up in January, so by Fall there will be new scandals for the MSM to talk about.

  194. jason says:

    I still think all Dems but less than half a dozen Dems will vote to impeach. No Rs will vote to impeach.

    In the senate, I think it will be party line, maybe Manchin will vote no or present.

    I predict Romney and Paul will vote no even if they want to vote yes. So will Collins and Murkowski.

    We shall see.

  195. dblaikie says:

    Jason I agree with you this whole process has been bad for the country! If the Senate throws the whole thing out, that would be fine. But it is the Dems who have gone down this road. In my mind it is the Dems who need to hope that there is no trial in the Senate.

    I believe Trump wants his day in court. Heck he loves to go to court with suits. And who can blame him? I understand your point and agree it makes sense for the good of the country. But if the Congress votes for impeachment we are going to have a trail.

  196. Phil says:

    Jason may be right that By next November, impeachment votes might not be all that big a deal. Here’s the deal though. In Republican districts Representatives like Horn, Cunningham, and Small won by razor thin margins. They have no margin of error to work with. None. It doesn’t have to matter a lot in those districts to send them packing. It just needs to matter a little….and those congressmen know it. They aren’t happy with this.

    In the end a half dozen House Democrats vote no to go with 100% of House Republicans. Crappy, partisan look in the House. Moronic strategy by Nancy and company. Beyond stupid.

  197. Phil says:

    I might add that Nancy and Adam were counting on public opinion moving in their favor by now. That clearly is not happening. Bad miscalculation.

  198. Hugh says:

    https://thefederalist.com/2019/11/22/how-republicans-won-phase-one-of-impeachment/

    This This sums up my thinking exactly. And this is a disaster for the Democrats who won in Trump districts. They won by saying they could work with Trump. That will last far past the impeachment vote all the way to November. They can no longer make the claim So what is her campaign pitch now?They will all lose big-time.

    dblaikie #188,

    “I believe this is a classic case of you better be careful of what you ask for.”

    I told liberals in the office the exact same thing in early 2016 when they were exuberant at Trump’s success in the GOP primaries because Hillary would trounce him in the general election.

  201. lisab says:

    U.S.—New documents have revealed the greatest presidential scandal in the history of our nation — maybe even the world. The documents, obtained from a whistleblower, show that the White House was behind a series of murders of state and local officials and certain businessmen, all as part of a scheme to cover up bribes received by the president himself from such countries as Iran and North Korea.

    This should not only lead to President Donald Trump being impeached but also to his arrest and perhaps his execution for treason. We will give you further details as they emerge.

    UPDATE: On further analysis of the documents, the events in question actually took place in 2015 when Barack Obama was president. Since this doesn’t involve Trump and instead is just on some minor issue with Obama (who probably knew what he was doing), we’re just going to go ahead and delete this completely irrelevant story and replace it with analysis of the latest Trump tweet. Can you believe what he just said?

    Ah yes, Jennifer Rubin. The Washington Post’s chosen conservative writer. She’s a trip alright. She’s spent the last two days nonstop tweeting how valiant and patriotic Schiff’s witnesses have been. Tweet after tweet after tweet. Throughout this entire process she’s been Gaga goo goo over impeachment. She’s saying to anyone who will listen that it’s up to Trump to prove his innocence. Huh? Innocence of what? She doesn’t seem to exactly know. How bad is she? She makes George Conway look almost sane. Rubin, Kathleen Parker, Peggy Noonan etc are DC swamp creatures. Worthless. Useful Democratic idiots.

    PO, sorry its you that is delusional, with all due respect.

    Not one person this week could say that Trump told them to withhold aid for a favor. Not one person could say that they heard Trump say that to anyone.

    It was all about what they interpreted, what they thought, what they heard from someone, and what “stated US policy should be” “What was best” “what diplomats got their feelings hurt”

    Sorry, speculation, here say, feelings, what they wanted the policy to be is not evidence of a crime.

    President Donald Trump is the only person in the US that sets US foreign policy as clearly laid out in Article II. It is not for Congress to set. Not for diplomats to set. Not for unelected officials to set. They ALL work for the President and he says what it is, and they fulfill his wishes.

    Barack Obama fired every single ambassador from the Bush administration. Trump could fire Yavanovich (sic)because he didn’t like the color of his shoes if he wanted. That’s not impeachable.

    You will retort with something degrading, or vile, or insulting though I never used one negative word with you, but, just remember, I said “with all due respect.” 😉

    The event, hosted by Wesley Palau, coordinator of SDSU’s Pride Center, and Miles Reyes, part of the Pride Center’s media team, spent time teaching students how to use language that is inclusive of transgender people. It lasted for about half an hour and was sparsely attended.

    The speakers started the presentation with a land acknowledgement of indigenous people.

    This should be real scary for Dems.

    “By massive margins, Independents say that the impeachment issue is “more important to politicians than it is to me” (62% to 22%) and “more important to the media than it is to me” (61% to 23%).”

    It shows that least partisan part of the electorate is on to the Dems and to the MSM agenda.

    Lafayette beats Lehigh and refs 17-16 in 155th game in the rivalry that started in 1884.

    Jason would have loved the refs. At one point, they said it was 4th down but it was really 3rd down. Lafayette punted. Lehigh ran a few plays then refs realized they were wrong so Lafayette was given the ball where it was on third down AND the clock was reset.

    At the end of the game, Lehigh had 8 seconds left and ran a play where more than 8 seconds ran off and the clock said 0:00. Refs put 1 second back on the clock. QB tackles to end the game.

  272. Hugh says:

    So I thought the impeachment clown show went bad for the dems but looking at the first day of the aftermath it’s was a total disaster.

  273. lisab says:

    the dems must have something planned for the senate …

    because …

    pelosi said they have to do this quickly, before a court can rule on the inquiry’s constitutionality, because the people voting cannot be trusted with something as important as ousting trump … congress needs to do it

    which could mean they have some scandal planned that would force republicans to convict

    for example, like an epstein girl saying trump slept with her or something similar

    keep in mind, the dems don’t care if it is true

    A lesson for Trump. Don’t trust Paulbots.

    “What’s going on with Drudge?” Trump has been asking allies since Democratic lawmakers launched the impeachment probe in late September, according to a person with knowledge of his private remarks. Two other sources who’ve heard the president complain told The Daily Beast that Trump has asked those close to him why they think Drudge and his website have seemed “so anti-Trump” lately.

    In recent weeks, Trump has even asked Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and a top White House official—who has had a friendly relationship with the site’s creator—to “look into it” and reach out to Drudge, the sources said…

    “[Trump] understands his influence; knows he can be a little mercurial, though, and prone to stir the pot,” said a former senior White House official. “He also knows Drudge isn’t able to be bullied. [Matt] doesn’t owe his career to anyone…[and] can’t be moved the way others can because he’s not afraid—not just of Trump but in general.”

    If Pelosi had something good for the Senate she would have used in the House.

    In addition, the Senate will only vote on the articles of impeachment from the House, there is no way to introduce new articles in the Senate.

  311. Jeff Bezos in San Diego: To Save Planet, ‘Move All Heavy Industry into Space’

    “He said our grandkids’ grandkids shouldn’t have to face a planet that’s “finite.”
    “You want a dynamic civilization that continues to use more and more energy and more and more resources and build amazing things,” he said. “And to do that, you have to move out into the solar system.”
    He showed real videos of the Blue Shepard “suborbital tourism vehicle” landing on Earth and narrated an animation of the Blue Moon cargo carrier using “computer vision” to precisely settle on the moon.
    He says he’s partnering with Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Draper Labs — and NASA. He didn’t say when a lunar landing would take place, but expects his powerful Blue Engine 4 being built in Florida to be used in 2021.
    “We now have 6,587 seconds of test time on the BE-4 engine,” which uses liquefied natural gas and liquid oxygen to produce 550,000 pounds of thrust, he said.
    The moon is a huge gift to us,” Bezos said, “if we want to have a space-faring civilization”
    The dream is to use water in shadowed craters of the moon’s poles to produce rocket fuel and other things.
    And since the amount of energy required to lift a pound into space off the moon is 24 times less than the amount needed from Earth, he said, that’s the platform for deep-space exploration.”

    “On Sunday, about 75% of eligible voters turned up to cast ballots in the Hong Kong election—per the BBC, nearly 3 million people came out, compared to 1.4 million in 2015—and by the time voting was over, anti-government advocates were celebrating a big win. Reuters reports pro-democracy candidates took almost 400 of the 452 seats for district councils that were in play in an election that saw record numbers come out to vote. For comparison, that’s four times as many seats as they won in the last election, which a political scientist says is “a political message to the government” and a “big slap in the face” to pro-Beijing forces. That message is seen as especially directed toward Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam, who spurred months of protests, sometimes violent ones, after introducing a bill allowing extradition to China; she withdrew that bill in September. “

    I am sure Tina is happy when the last RINO dies not once, but multiple times.

  347. Joe J says:

    352, I don’t expect Trump to receive anywhere near 34% of the AA vote, however, anything in the double digits will keep MI and PA red. Over 15% and you’re looking at 350+ EVs.

  348. jason says:

    Right, Trump is not going to get anywhere close to 20%, let alone 30%.

    But it does matter how the black vote is distributed. It won’t help Dems if they get 95% of the black vote in CA, NY and IL if they only get 85% in FL, NC, PA and MI.

    Don’t get me wrong, Rs SHOULD get a third of the black vote. Dems are interested in keeping blacks voting Democratic by pandering and offering entitlements, not in elevating their standard of living and offering opportunities that will allow them better housing, better education, better healthcare, etc. However, the Dem machine is just too strong for that to happen.

  349. BayernFan says:

    Even if he got 20 or 30…. would black voters admit it in exit polls?

  350. jason says:

    So you think there is a shy Trump vote among blacks too.

    Possible. But a shy vote of let’s say 20% of the black vote, which would be quite large, would raise 10% to 12% not 20 or 30.

  351. BayernFan says:

    I don’t know if there is a shy vote. My question is: if there is one, how do we know? Would blacks admit it?

  352. Phil says:

    I think there is a real possibility Trump could get 13 or 14 percent. That would be a big deal in the Midwest which is where the election will be decided. I predict against Mayor Pete it could actually reach a couple of points higher than even that. It would definitely mean black turnout would be impacted.

  353. Phil says:

    By the way, Trump only got 8% of the black vote in 2016. Getting 14 or so percent would be a really big deal. Democrats should be terrified of that possibility.

  354. Wes says:

    Bloomberg is in the race to ensure Warren and Sandaers can’t introduce a wealth ta—I mean, beat Donald Trump.

  355. jason says:

    Trump did get double digits with black males, but did a lot worse with black women.

  356. jason says:

    I think Bloomberg hurts Biden and helps Trump, unless he actually got nominated.

    He hurts Biden because he steals some of the “moderate” vote from him, not much but in a close primary contest it could make a difference.

    It helps Trump because he will make the case against some of the crazier Dem proposals out there, which Trump can use later in the GE.

  357. jason says:

    I don’t know if there is a shy vote. My question is: if there is one, how do we know? Would blacks admit it?”

    Admitting a shy vote is an oxymoron.

    After reading the media papers and listening to the stuff on TV yesterday, I know believe that there is only a 50/50 chance of an impeachment vote happening. The Dems have a real disaster on their hands. If they don’t impeach their base will explode in anger.

    If they do impeach the vote will be much closer perhaps on getting barely enough votes (220-218). More than that the trial looming in the Senate will be unthinkable for them. Think about it, the whistle blower under oath, Schiff called to testify, Hunter on the stand. I could go on and on.

    In short the Democrats are in a total lose/lose scenario. Perhaps the only way out to avoid total disaster is to op for censure. That would be very bad for them, but with a complaint media droning on about how censure is just as bad as impeachment it might be their only way out.

    Biden Is Struggling in Iowa and His Supporters There Know Why

    WINTERSET, Iowa — Nancy Courtney displays a Joe Biden sign in her yard, makes phone calls for his campaign and supports the former vice president “100 percent,” she said. But the sluggish state of Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s organization in her city of Burlington, Iowa, had her fuming one recent evening.

    “In Burlington, they are duds,” said Ms. Courtney, an activist who is married to the Democratic chairman in Des Moines County. “I will help, but there’s no excitement there. There’s nothing. I will do whatever it takes to get him elected, but I can’t go down there when there’s nothing going on.”

  370. lisab says:

    By the way, Trump only got 8% of the black vote in 2016. Getting 14 or so percent would be a really big deal. Democrats should be terrified of that possibility.

    My prediction on impeachment is that the Democrats can’t afford to turn back now. To do so would be to admit their hearings bombed and that this was nothing but a political power play that didn’t make the case. I think they will go through with it but it will get no Republican votes. There will also be at least 5 to 6 Democratic defections. The polls were supposed to have moved in their favor by now and to their horror they moved the other way. Needless to say, Impeachment has not gone according to plan.

    So now what? One thing Rush said today is that it wouldn’t be out of the question for Nancy to hold a press conference and just say they have proven their case with overwhelming evidence. The witnesses were compelling and there is no question Trump is guilty….BUT she is pulling the vote because it’s clear the Partisan, spineless, Republican senate is determined to protect the clearly criminal Donald Trump and therefore because of blatant Republican partisanship Trump will be aguitted. She will say that for the country’s sake she can’t allow that outcome …… soooo the vote will not be taken. We Democrats wanted to do what was right but the Partisan, Trump protecting Republican senators refused to do the right thing.

    Sheekey said the general election is only about six states: Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida and Arizona.

    “That’s the whole general election. And right now Donald Trump is winning, he is winning that election. It’s very tough for people who don’t live in New York or California to understand that, but that is what’s happening,” Sheekey said.”

    Trump is going to increase is % of the black vote 3-5 percent in any event.

    Look for Democrats to go back to the Trump is a racist card with lots of inflamed race rhetoric. I don’t think it’s going to work like it has in the past. Looks desperate. Employment and wages are up for blacks….hence the small uptick in percentage.

  407. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    From Morgoth at Red Racing Horses a summary of a just-released CNN Poll:

    Latest CNN poll, impeachment unchanged at 43/50.

    Trump approval up with adults to 42/54 from 41/57. With RV’s up to 43/53 from 42/57. I’m pretty sure this is the first time Trump’s approval in a CNN poll is higher than his approval with Rasmussen, -10 on CNN vs -11 on Rasmussen, a new record I guess.

    Trump approval continues to differ by enthusiasm to vote, among voters who say they are extremely enthusiastic his approval is 48/51, among very enthusiastic he is at 45/54 and among less enthusiastic he is only at 34/57.

    The sample is D+6, last month’s sample was D+4 so this sample is somewhat more favourable for democrats.

    Among independents in their last poll support for impeachment was 50/42, in their current poll its dropped to 47/45, the overall number hasn’t moved because they have more democrats in this poll so that’s kept the overall number stable.

  414. dblaikie says:

    Yesterday I said that I believed that the Dems moving forward on Impeachment was at best 50/50. With the defection of Brenda Harris from a deep blue district I now think that there will not be an Impeachment vote. The reason why is because Harris gives vulnerable dems from Trump districts cover. My opinion is that they will drop like dominoes. The truth is that I believe that Nancy knows right now that she will not have the votes.

    Who knows maybe Harris is following Pelosi’s orders as a way to get out from this. The brutal fact is that an impeachment vote coupled with a Senate trial coupled with the release of the DOJ report will bring huge damage to the Democrats. Back peddling to a censure will mean a huge loss of face for the dems but it would be better than the alternative.

  415. jason says:

    I am skeptical the DOJ report will bring “huge damage to the Dems”.

  417. jason says:

  418. Phil says:

    I still think they may be too far down the path to not impeach but it’s now a very distinct possibility they don’t. Their caucus is still infected with full blown TDS of course. I agree, the last off ramp for Pelosi is censure. It would make the most sense. Democrats like Cunningham in SC-1 and Horn in Ok-5 are praying for that. Those are Trump +13 districts in which they each won by less than one percent in a Democratic year. Pelosi would no doubt give them a pass to vote no, but how is it going to look for an impeachment vote that gets zero Republicans with half a dozen Democrats peeling off to join the no votes? Nothing approaching bipartisan in that. If anything it is bipartisan the other way. It screams nothing but a total political operation.

    There is no upside whatsoever for Democrats if there is a Senate trial for the following reasons:

    1) Trump will be acquitted.
    2) It will fire up the Republican base and become one long huge Trump and Republican fundraiser.
    3) Republicans will, unlike the House, get the opportunity to call their own witnesses and present their case.
    4) Public opinion is not in favor of opinion in swing states.
    5) Clashes with the primary season. Democratic Senators stuck in DC for the trial.
    6) Censure gets Democrats a handful of Republican votes. Impeachment gets zero.

    I want them to impeach. Whether common sense prevails over their TDS will be revealed shortly. Odds are increasing by the day they veer away from an impeachment vote. It only made sense if the hearings had moved public opinion and cracked Republican solidarity. That didn’t happen.

  419. dblaikie says:

    Thanks Jason I will gladly accept it. Like you I don’t know what will happen with DOJ report. My point was that in conjunction with the other stuff it “add wood to the fire.”

    Frankly I was stunned that Harris who is a popular member of Congressional Black Caucus and who represents a deeply blue would come out against impeachment. It makes my conspiratorial mind scream that there is trouble in the Democratic Caucus!

    Huh, that is not the way to look at those numbers.

    Since Trump is the only R there, the betting is really saying he only has a 42% chance of winning, which mirrors other betting sites too. Or you can look at head to head matchups to see how he does against each of those candidates. But you can’t say that Biden only has a 12% chance of beating Trump head to head, he has a a 12% of being the nominee AND beating Trump.

    But all is not lost, remember Silverhack only have him a 25% chance and the Princeton idiot gave him 1% in 2016.

  435. Joe J says:

    Even though Trump is around 42% there, he is somehow only 79% as of last check to win the nomination so that might be skewing that 42 lower. He really should be 99+ to win the nom and probably somewhere in the mid to upper 50s to win a second term IMO

That position has gotten stronger as the deep weaknesses of the Democratic candidates has been revealed. In addition the chief symptom of TDS is always over reaching in hatred. Truly the Dems are their own worst enemy.

    But in a sense so is Trump. His tweet about the Ukrainian Ambassador was not needed or productive. So on the other side is Trump is a loose cannon. But what really turns this cycle into turmoil is the complete and total bias, no that was in the past, the complete and total hatred of the President in the press and Academia. How can you trust their polls or anything else they claim? Above posts talk about betting. How much is betting effected by the constant harangue of hatred from the media.

    In short, unlike many, I believe that Trump has a clear path to being reelected. However I am not certain of it. Like the “Old Forest” in the Lord of Rings the path can mysteriously change.

The report states Clinesmith was the “the primary FBI attorney assigned to that investigation beginning in early 2017.” He then joined Robert Mueller’s investigation team and was dismissed in February 2018 after his anti-Trump text messages had been revealed.”

    President Trump says he will designate Mexican Drug Cartels as foreign Terrorist Organizations

    Might not be a lot in it after we raided it to buy Scooter a raincoat so he could park cars in the rain. But it was worth it, he stopped coming into the kitchen every ten minutes asking Kim for hot chocolate.

    The jar is empty. We can melt the jar.

    The Tories are running the whole Jeremy Corbyn interview, unedited, on the main @Conservatives Facebook page. That’s how bad it was.

  455. lisab says:

    Among the general discussion of political issues by FBI Attorney 2, we identified three instant message exchanges that raised concerns of potential bias. The first of these exchanges was on October 28, 2016, shortly after Comey’s October 28 letter to Congress that effectively announced the reopening of the Midyear investigation. FBI Attorney 2 sent similar messages to four different FBI employees. The timestamps of these messages are included below. The messages stated:

    13:44:42, to FBI Employee 1: “I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.”

    13:44:52, to FBI Employee 2: “I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.”

    14:01:52, to FBI Employee 3: “As I have initiated the destruction of the republic…. Would you be so kind as to have a coffee with me this afternoon?”

    15:28:50, to FBI Employee 4: “I’m clinging to small pockets of happiness in the dark time of the Republic’s destruction”

  456. lisab says:

    FBI Employee: “All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out. Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.”

    11:11:43, FBI Attorney 2: “I’m just devastated. I can’t wait until I can leave today and just shut off the world for the next four days.”

    11:12:06, FBI Employee: “Why are you devastated?”

    11:12:18, FBI Employee: “Yes, I’m not watching tv forfour years.”

    11:14:16, FBI Attorney 2: “I just can’t imagine the systematic disassembly of the progress we made over the last 8 years. ACA is gone. Who knows if the rhetoric about deporting people, walls, and crap is true. I honestly feel like there is going to be a lot more gun issues, too, the crazies won finally. This is the tea party on steroids. And the GOP is going to be lost, they have to deal with an incumbent in 4 years. We have to fight this again. Also Pence is stupid.”

    11:14:58, FBI Employee: “Yes that’s all true.”

    11:15:01, FBI Attorney 2: “And it’s just hard not to feel like the FBI caused some of this. It was razor thin in some states.”

    11:15:09, FBI Employee: “Yes it was very thin.”

    11:15:23, FBI Attorney 2: “Plus, my god damnedname is all over the legal documents investigating his staff.”

    11:15:24, FBI Employee: “But no I absolutely do not believe the FBI had any part.”

    11:15:33, FBI Attorney 2: “So, who knows if that breaks to him what he is going to do.”

  457. jason says:

    Of course Kim claims he was really not after hot chocolate but that is subject to litigation so we won’t go there.

  458. jason says:

    “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing.”

    Yeah, you don’t need the support of poor to middle class people to win elections.

    Poll: Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard Surge in New Hampshire, Biden Drops to Fourth

  461. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    For those who believe the voters favor a more isolationist foreign policy:

    “More than 1,000 U.S. adults responded to the second annual national defense survey conducted by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute. Most of them believe the U.S. should have a more active foreign policy, and be more engaged in international affairs.
    * * *
    The survey found that 76 percent of respondents supported the use of American military force abroad, whether or not there is a direct threat to the U.S., to include defending freedom and preventing human rights violations. Additionally, 65 percent were in favor of maintaining America’s network of military bases overseas, while 28 percent believe that presence should be reduced.
    “These are not the views of a country that would eschew global leadership but rather a nation where President Reagan’s vision of peace through strength is alive and well,” Roger Zakheim, the Reagan Institute’s Washington director, said in a press release.
    The survey also found that 86 percent of Americans report confidence in the military, down from 93 percent in the inaugural 2018 survey. Support for increasing military spending, however, is up one point to 76 percent in 2019, according to the survey.”

    Sanders admits he will raise taxes on not only the middle class, but even those who don’t even make $30k a year.

    “Is health care free? No, it is not,” Sanders told host Stephen Colbert. “So what we do is exempt the first $29,000 of a person’s income. You make less than $29,000 you pay nothing in taxes. Above that, in a progressive way with the wealthiest people in this country paying the largest percentage, people do pay more in taxes”

    Warren’s poll numbers in New Hampshire are collapsing. She is just not proposing enough new regulations and taxes. When Trump is ahead of Warren in a one-on-one in New Hampshire, time for Warren bring out the peace pipe.

    The hypocrisy is stunning:

    @BjornLomborg Hilarious Greta’s boat trip to the US might emit 6x a flight, because the 5 people taking the boat back will fly over to NYC

    “Some intriguing revelations about the crewing arrangements emerged soon after departure. It turns out that the three westbound crossing crew will be flying back from New York to Europe, while the replacement crew of five will be flying from Europe to New York for the return passage.”

    “few of us can whistle up a $4 million, 18-meter (60-ft) yacht from Prince Albert of Monaco to cross the Atlantic to assuage our enviro-guilt, and consider just one question …Precisely how green is the Blessed Greta’s planet-saving maritime odyssey?”

    “Outremer Yachting 45 Catamaran has a huge 672L diesel fuel tank, which powers two Volvo Diesel Sail Drive engines.”

    “Let’s look at the supposedly ‘zero-emissions’, ‘carbon’-free yacht itself. It’s built of carbon fiber. (Remember, we skeptics aren’t the ones who started the misuse of scientific terminology for political effect.) Now, the production process for building a carbon-fiber yacht is estimated to be around 14 times as energy-intensive, and thus in ‘carbon’, i.e. CO2, emissions, as that for building one of equivalent length in steel. Not only that. The epoxy resins used in the construction of Greta’s Ark are different and are all organic materials made from petroleum and significant amounts of natural gas.”

    What’s amazing is the leaders of Russia and China realize that Marxist socialism does not work, and have moved on in their economic policies. Yet old Bolsheviks like Corbyn and Bernie Sanders still are nostalgic for old style Marxism, and actually want to create governments based on the Soviet model.

    It has impeachment at 47-40. Obviously they don’t like the 47%, so the new standard is “net difference” which went up from 4 to 7 points.
