    Text messages released weeks ago showed that Bill Taylor believed the Trump administration was conditioning the release of military aid to Ukraine on a Ukrainian investigation of Trump’s political opponents. Yesterday, in testimony before Congress, Taylor described the events that caused him to believe this.If Taylor is telling the truth, he had a sound basis for believing that, for a while, there was a quid pro quo relationship between the release of aid and an investigation by Ukraine of the Bidens. He testified about a conversation with a National Security Council official who informed him that Gordon Sondland, our...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Four protests are planned today for President Donald Trump’s visit to Pittsburgh to speak at the Marcellus Shale Coalition Insight Conference downtown. The first protest began at 9 a.m. at the Gateway Center T station in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. The protesters marched from the T station over to Point State Park, where they blocked the roads near the Wyndham Hotel. The protesters carried a banner that read “Our solidarity will defeat White Nationalists,” and chanted, “Rise up,” and “You are not welcome here Donald Trump.”

    Democrats are running exploratory committees that are set up so as to curtail President Trump, the White House, and others their due process rights so that Democrats can gather information and engage in whatever actions or endeavors they desire while intentionally denying the same to Trump. The question remains: is this illegal or immoral and unethical? Republicans like Lindsey Graham, Cruz, etc, need to get on TV 24/7 and explain to Americans that this is at the very least immoral and unethical behavior on the part of Democrats, they aren't going to going along with it, and the Senate will...
  • Why the 'Woke' Corporations Back China - Greenfield

    Tuesday, October 22, 2019 Why the 'Woke' Corporations Back China Posted by Daniel Greenfield 0 Comments Think there’s a contradiction between ‘woke’ corporate titans like Apple and Disney silencing anyone opposed to China’s crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong? It’s not hypocrisy, it’s synergy. The same forces that made the major brands scattered around your kitchen, living room and garage broadcast their support for gun control, gay marriage and illegal immigration are fueling their support for the People’s Republic of China pulling another Tiananmen Square in Hong Kong. The lefties in Beijing and Berkeley used the same set of ideological...

    What we are witnessing with such gems of hysterical mendacity are the pathetic death throes of a discredited political franchise and its rapidly disintegrating narrative.If you haven’t had your daily dose of petulant surreality, swivel over to read this astounding editorial at what used to be America’s paper of record. This curious effusion warns that “The G.O.P. will not be able to postpone a reckoning on Donald Trump’s presidency for much longer.”Oh, dear. Are things as bad as that? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. And you know that it is really serious because the cri de coeur not only...

    At Hillary Clinton’s latest campaign stop in Oregon, the former first lady again refused to endorse any of the current Democrats running in the 2020 presidential primary, but she did highlight her experience with impeachment and essentially described herself as the ideal candidate to take on Trump in 2020. Clinton and daughter Chelsea were at Portland’s Revolution Hall on Saturday to promote their new book about “gutsy women” when the moderator, local author Cheryl Strayed, brought up 2020, KGW8 reports.

    After many years of silence since leaving office, former President George W. Bush sharply chastised President Trump’s Syrian troop withdrawal, claiming it “threatens to undo my signature achievement as president.” Bush rejected Trump’s reasoning that the United States shouldn’t be engaged in endless wars to try to promote nation-building, by pointing out that “endless is an exaggeration. My wars only started in 2003. That’s just 16 years ago. If I recall correctly, Europe had a 100 years war spanning the 14th and 15th centuries. The cold war between us and the Soviet Union lasted four decades. And to hear Trump...

The View’s Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin on Monday applauded former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for seemingly claiming last week that Russians will support a third-party presidential run by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, calling the Hawaii Democrat a “useful idiot” and a “Trojan horse.” During a podcast interview last week, Clinton said Gabbard was a “favorite of the Russians” and was being groomed “to be the third-party candidate,” offering...

    Key members of Donald Trump's inner circle will attend the Saudi economic forum known as "Davos in the Desert" one year after shunning it in the aftermath of Jamal Khashoggi's murder. US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner will fly to Riyadh for the Future Investment Initiative (FII,) Quartz reported Monday. In October 2018, Mnuchin abandoned plans to attend the conference after talks with Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He never specified why he didn't attend, but the conference took place just weeks after Khashoggi's killing. The conference in Riyadh, which takes place from October...

    McClatchy ^ | October 22, 2019 | Michael Wilner and Emma Dumain
    Congressional Democrats will file a legal brief in federal court on Tuesday asserting that President Trump’s promotion of his Doral resort for the G-7 summit was further evidence he has violated the Emoluments Clause, despite his decision to reverse course. The initial announcement last week — from Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, as he stood behind the official White House podium — provided the president’s personal property with “invaluable publicity” that in and of itself may amount to an emolument, a House Democratic source said. Democratic lawmakers and their aides debated how to proceed over the weekend, after...

    Appearing as guests on Thursday's CNN Tonight, former CBS anchor Dan Rather and former ABC anchor Sam Donaldson declared that President Donald Trump is "out-Nixoning Nixon" on the Ukraine issue, with Donaldson claiming that there is a "smoking transcript" and Rather suggesting that it is already time to "roll the credits on a mob movie" based on President Trump and Rudy Giuliani's activities. At 10:46 p.m. Eastern, host Don Lemon introduced the segment: "The coverup, the tapes, and a President under a cloud of impeachment. Is President Trump out-Nixoning Nixon?

  • Trump impeachment inquiry's secrecy, and Nancy Pelosi denying a House vote, weaken Democrats' case

    NBC News ^ | October 21, 2019 | Kelly Jane Torrance
    A closed-door process won't convince the public — or the GOP — to remove the president. The House of Representatives didn’t need to vote on articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon in 1974. After millions of Americans watched days and days of hearing proceedings on television, they knew exactly what they thought of the president they’d reelected not even two years before — and Nixon knew they knew. That’s why he resigned on Aug. 9 before Congress ever held a floor vote. Watergate and its aftermath proved one of the most painful episodes in American political history, but the impeachment...

    Behind closed doors (2) What really happened when the president met behind closed doors with congressional leaders in the White House last week and Nancy Pelosi wagged her finger at President Trump? In his remarks to the press immediately following the meeting, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy did not go into detail. McCarthy subsequently gave an account that contrasted with the one touted by the Democrats and faithfully disseminated by their media adjunct. In an interview with Laura Ingraham (video below, FOX News story here), McCarthy provided additional context to Pelosi’s performance. In today’s New York Post Miranda Devine gives...

    Behind closed doors If Republicans were conducting an “impeachment inquiry” of a Democratic president, we’d be hearing about the procedural anomalies employed in the production of a foreordained result. We would be instructed on the irregularity of committing such an inquiry to the House Intelligence Committee. We would also be hearing about the profound character defects of the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. As it is, we are left to pick up table scraps on our own. Mollie Hemingway covers one installment of the story in “Adam Schiff Flip-Flopped On Whistleblower Testimony After Reports Of Coordination.” Hemingway quotes a...
