YUGE news

TRUMP NOT GUILTY

image

The Senate overwhelmingly acquitted President Trump on both articles of impeachment against him Wednesday afternoon following a brief trial, in a historic rejection of Democrats’ claims that the president’s Ukraine dealings and handling of congressional subpoenas merited his immediate removal from office.

All Democratic senators supported convicting the president of abuse of power and obstruction of justice, including swing-vote moderate Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Doug Jones, D-Ala.

The only party defection was on the abuse of power charge from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who declared hours before the final vote that Trump had engaged in as “destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine.” Romney voted not guilty on the obstruction charge.

By a final vote of 52-48 against conviction on the abuse of power charge and 53-47 on the obstruction charge, the Senate fell far short of the two-thirds majority needed to convict and remove the president. Swing-vote Republican senators—including Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee—voted to acquit on both counts.

Also ahead of the vote, Republican and Democratic leaders addressed the Senate. McConnell warned of “truly dangerous” Democratic partisans, saying they insist on taking down institutions that do not produce the outcomes they desire.

“This partisan impeachment will end today,” McConnell said. “But, I fear the threat to our institutions may not. Normally, when a party loses an election, it accepts defeat. ... But not this time.”

Instead, McConnell went on, top Democrats—including Hillary Clinton and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.—have already preemptively challenged the validity of the 2020 presidential election, and blamed their loss on unsubstantiated claims that the president’s campaign colluded with Russians.

Minutes earlier, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., slammed the Senate trial as a “kangaroo court” and a “sham.”

Romney is a McCain level douchebag. Hope he gets primaried out ASAP. He’s an intractable Democrat, just like the rest of them. Vote them all the Hell out of office.

And don’t think for a minute this is the end of their temper tantrum. Oh Hella No.

Is it reprisal time yet?

and the Dems go nuts last night and the morning after

It just goes on and on. The incoherent rabid hatred of our President from the lunatic Left never ends.

Several unhinged Dems “stormed” out of the speech last night, including Rancid tLabia because Trump’s message of unity, exceptionalism, economic prosperity, national security, hope for the future, etc was just “so fake”. Seriously.

AOC couldn’t even bring herself to go, boycotting the event but apparently watching every second of it. She’s having a tizzy over Rush getting the Medal of Freedom, saying how that cheapens this high honor. Granted, President Trump could have bestowed it at a separate ceremony, but doing it during the SOTU forced every media outlet to show it, instead of burying on page 87 and pretending it didn’t happen. But regarding cheapening the thing, how convenient that she seems to have forgotten that Obama awarded one to Joe Biden for ... being Joe Biden. Worse, Obama gave him the award “with distinction” which is an even higher level of honor.  Creepy Uncle Joe was so overcome with emotion at the time that the truth came out by accident, as he repeatedly said he didn’t deserve the medal.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed Rush Limbaugh, who was recently was diagnosed with cancer, as a “racist” on social media late Tuesday, saying he “cheapens” the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

AOC didn’t attend President Trump’s State of the Union address, claiming it would have legitimized what she saw as lawless conduct under his administration. But she offered her thoughts on Limbaugh receiving the honor to her 4.2 million Instagram followers with a streaming video.

“First of all, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is an extraordinarily sacred award. We’re talking about putting someone on the same level as Rosa Parks, for example, in terms of their contributions to American progress,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Rush Limbaugh is a violent racist.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Rush Limbaugh “is a violent racist” and “cheapens” the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Rush Limbaugh “is a violent racist” and “cheapens” the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

“To do it in the middle of a State of the Union, and not even dignify it with its own ceremony, as it has, there is all sorts of norms that are being violated,” she said. “Not just for people’s humanity but also, it truly just cheapens the value of it.”

Meathead and other Hollywood idiots are shooting their moronic mouths off today too. They aren’t worth quoting or linking to.

And a large part of normal America is utterly aghast at Speaker Pelosi’s petulant act of tearing up her copy of the speech, which could have been the one delivered to her as tradition demands for the Congressional Record. Contemptuous bitch.

Not that she was alone in her classless disruptive behavior last night. Fred Guttenberg, anti-2A zealot got himself tossed from the event, and the Witches In White tried to start up something at one point, each waving 3 raised fingers, but the President talked right over them and they quickly shut down. I gather this was in support of “the Elijah Cummings Bill” HR3, which is supposed to address the high cost of prescription drugs in the country ... drugs perhaps covered by ObamaCare, or President Bush’s prescription drug plan? Or perhaps falling under President Trump’s mention of his push for lower drug costs? Seems like a meaningless disruptive act to me, when the President is already behind the idea.

When President Donald Trump called on Congress during his State of the Union speech to send him legislation to lower prescription drug prices, House Democrats had a ready response.

The President was highlighting his work taking on “big pharmaceutical companies.” He said his administration approved a record number of affordable generic drugs and the FDA was approving new medicines faster than ever before. Trump also said the cost of prescription drugs decreased for the first time in 51 years.

It was when Trump asked for bipartisan support for lowering drug prices that the Democrats stood up in protest.

“I am calling for bipartisan legislation that achieves the goal of dramatically lowering prescription drug prices, Trump said. “Get a bill to my desk, and I will sign it into law without delay.”

Democrats got on their feet, raised three fingers and chanted “H.R. 3! H.R. 3!” referring to the late Rep. Elijah Cummings bill on drug pricing. Many democrats also yelled “You lie!” The bill was passed by the House in December on a largely party-line vote, but has remained untouched in the Republican-controlled Senate.

So the President, acting in a bipartisan way in support of the American people, calls on the Republican controlled Senate to urge this bill on, yet the Democrats felt the need to protest that, yelling out that he was a liar for supporting their own bill. You can’t win with these idiots.
Granted, having the federal government “negotiate” with Big Pharma [ “nice corporation you’ve got here, would be a shame if anything happened to it” ] strikes of fascism, being antithetical to the whole concept of free market captialism ... another thing the Left is against.

SOTU Homerun

President Trump delivered the greatest State Of The Union address tonight that I’ve even seen. Out of the ballpark grand slam, while Nazi Pelousy sat behind him sucking lemons, dramatically ripping her copy of the speech in half at the end.

“You attack our citizens, you forfeit your life. “ Oh F//// Yeah!!!

And the bitter partisan Dems, sitting there in their idiotic Handmaiden white suits, wouldn’t applaud a single pro-American statement. Not even for the little black girl from Philly who Trump found a scholarship for so she wouldn’t lose out because the fools in PA did education cutbacks and she got wait-listed. They wouldn’t even clap for God. They suck.

And of course, Melania looked perfect.

More Deep State Connections

So John Bolton’s new book is all up in the news. He submitted it to the NSC for clearance, and what a surprise, somehow some of the content got leaked to the New York Times.

How on earth did that happen? Golly, who would have EVER thought that there’d be yet another anti-Trump coup member at that honorable and sacrosanct institution?

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s identical twin brother Army Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, a senior ethics lawyer for the NatSec Council is in charge of reviewing book approvals, according to sources who spoke to Breitbart News.

Recall, Alexander Vindman, who leaked Trump’s call to the whistleblower because he disagreed with Trump’s foreign policy, showed up to testify in the House hearings against Trump in his uniform.

Vindman testified that his twin brother witnessed Trump officials move the transcript of Trump’s call to Zelensky to a top-secret server.

Barack Obama also used this same top-secret server to secure transcripts of his calls to foreign leaders and nobody cared. It’s only a scandal when Trump does it.

Anonymous sources conveniently leaked to the New York Times claiming former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s book manuscript accused President Trump of tying Ukraine aid to Biden investigations.

Bolton’s team pushed back in a statement Sunday night and said, “It is clear, regrettably, from The New York Times article published today that the prepublication review process has been corrupted.”

Bolton on Monday also denied coordinating with the New York Times.




Yeah. The thing about the Deep State Swamp: they’re all connected. Bolton didn’t have to coordinate with the NY Slimes. There are people who have people who will do that for him, wink wink, nudge nudge, nothing written down or even spoken out loud. It’s how the system works.

And if you buy that “regrettably ... the review process has been corrupted” BS, then I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn you might like to purchase. This was planned and deliberate. I hope the era of plausible deniability will soon end. This was as accidental as an assassination.

I used to have the greatest respect and admiration for John Bolton, but it’s becoming apparent that he’s just another narcissistic petulant slug in the DC swamp.

Late Night Peach Mint

OMG, I tried watching that crap last night. Endless blather, with the Dems going on FOREVER, getting into hyper detail and lying like rugs when they’re were supposed to be explaining why they wanted to bring in a ton of new documents and witnesses, after the years of the Mueller investigation et al turned up nothing, and the months of the peach mint inquiry turned up nothing, and how their emergency rush to impeach President Trump on totally vacuous charges had to be done right this instant, but then set aside for several weeks so they could all go on vacation, and now Schiff, Schumer, and his hit squad of crazies want to change the rules in the Senate. My run-on sentence was nothing compared to their hours of obfuscations.

In the end, they got Mitch to bend a little, so they’ll get their witnesses but not at the start. Personally, I never would have allowed it. It’s not like they haven’t had years to research and gather everything under the sun. Run what you brung, or go home.

McConnell’s rules, which were eventually adopted in a 53-47 party-line vote at 1:40 a.m. ET Wednesday and largely mirror those from the Bill Clinton impeachment trial in 1999, permit new witnesses and documents to be considered only later on in the proceedings, after opening arguments are made.

Under McConnell’s final, adopted rules resolution, both the Democrats’ impeachment managers and Trump’s lawyers will now have three session days, totaling 24 hours, allocated to present their case.

McConnell’s original resolution had allowed 24 hours of arguments over only two days.

The vote on the Bolton amendment, like the roll call on Schumer’s previous failed quixotic proposals on the day, was not a final determination on any witness or document request, because McConnell’s proposal would allow new evidence to be considered later on in the process.

At 1:30 a.m. ET, Schumer introduced his last amendment to McConnell’s rules-- and he unexpectedly put Roberts back in the spotlight. The proposal would have allowed Roberts to decide the appropriateness of witnesses, which Republicans nixed because the Constitution affords the Senate the “sole” power over impeachment trials.

That last amendment was tabled by a 53-47 party-line vote, just like ten of Schumer’s other proposals.

Which shows me that this avalanche of garbage is entirely partisan. Well, duh. We knew that 3 years ago when they started crying for impeachment almost the moment the votes were tallied.

chips falling from the deep state resistance

Andrew Peek, NSC Senior Director, Escorted From White House Friday And Under Security Investigation

Trump in Davos for World Economic Forum with most of cabinet, but Mike Pompeo is not part of the group, although he was originally scheduled to be.

Andrew Peek had previously worked for General John Allen, who took over the Afghanistan theater after Patraeus left, but held the job for only a short time until sexual misconduct allegations forced his retirement.

General Allen was used by Obama to push his false narrative about defeating ISIS.  Allen spoke at the 2016 DNC convention in support of Hillary Clinton.

Impeachment Inquiry “witness” Andrew Vindman worked directly for Andrew Peek.

Peek got the NSC SD job with the approval of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.

Sounds like Teh Resistanz planted a mole who got caught being naughty, and now the whole chain of them are having a time-out.

President Donald Trump’s top Russia expert on the National Security Counsel is reportedly on leave pending a security investigation.

Andrew Peek, the NSC’s senior director for European and Russian affairs, was escorted from the White House grounds on Friday, two people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

Peek had been in the NSC role for just two months, after most recently working as a deputy assistant secretary of state with responsibility for Iran and Iraq.

He replaced Tim Morrison, who left the position after testifying in the House impeachment inquiry. Morrison testified that the U.S. Ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, had told him there was a quid pro quo in which U.S. aid to Ukraine was conditioned on the country’s government opening an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Morrison’s predecessor in the role, Fiona Hill, also testified as part of the impeachment inquiry.

Peek had been expected to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland next week with Trump and other top aides.

However, he is currently on leave pending a security-related investigation

Peek previously served as a deputy assistant secretary of State for Iraq and Iran, and he was seen as an ally of Robert O’Brien, who took over as national security adviser from John Bolton in September.

Prior to joining the State Department, Peek served as a U.S. Army intelligence officer who worked under General John Allen in Afghanistan. He was also a national security adviser to Senator Gordon Smith, an Oregon Republican, and Senator Mike Johanns, a Nebraska Republican.

Andrew Peek coming from the stable of John Allen tells us everything we need to know about the ideology of Mr. Peek.  There’s no doubt in my mind that Andrew Peek is therefore an ideological member of the resistance similar to another NSC appointment, Alexander Vindman.

Keep in mind, National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien also comes from inside the Dept of State.  So whether Mike Pompeo and Robert O’Brien set-up Peek as a mole, or whether Peek’s activities were discovered without their foreknowledge is an open question.  However, I find it impossible to believe that NSA Robert O’Brien didn’t know the ideology of Peek prior to the appointment.

The bigger question is whether O’Brien and Pompeo will be the next to get the boot.

West Virginia Makes The Play

Dammit, I have to learn to write concisely. That last post took forever, for a really niche story that won’t interest many. Ok, so let’s keep this one short.

West Virginia Offers To Take All Of Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties

A huge “screw you” to the leftists in charge in Richmond.

It started in 1863. Because freedom. Actually, it started in 1775 but nobody paid them any attention.

A huge chunk of Virginia’s counties and their biggest city have now gone Second Amendment Sanctuary.

Last week West Virginia offered to take Fredrick County, half of which went over to West Virginia in 1863.

Virginia is for lovers, so West Virginia is reviving a 158-year-old proposal to ask one of its counties on a date. The answer, apparently, is still no.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution by voice vote Monday to remind residents of Frederick County, Virginia, that the county has a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia. It now goes to the House of Delegates.

The resolution was introduced by Morgan County Republican Charles Trump, whose district borders Frederick County. Trump was born in Winchester, the seat of Frederick, which is Virginia’s northernmost county.

Now West Virginia has upped the ante, and has offered to take ALL the 2A counties.

In a display of pro-Second Amendment solidarity, a group of West Virginia lawmakers have introduced a resolution inviting Virginia counties frustrated by gun control efforts to switch states.

Delegates in the lower house of the West Virginia Legislature put the proposal forth on Tuesday. House Concurrent Resolution 8 would allow certain Virginia counties and independent cities to be admitted to West Virginia as constituent counties.

The group of 20 West Virginia Republicans, and one Independent, introducing the resolution said in the proposal that Virginia lawmakers have repudiated “the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that ‘The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.’”

“[T]he government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of [Virginia,]” the proposal reads.

If it passes, the Virginia General Assembly would need to approve the resolution as well, and hold an election prior to August 1, 2020 allowing residents in Virginia counties to vote on whether they’d like to join West Virginia.

If this happens, WV will double or triple in size, get lots more electoral votes, take in most of the rural and white population of Virginia, and leave Olde Virginny being little more than a bedroom community around Washington DC.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of leftists.

There. Concise enough?

Double Standards Of Justice: Deep State Still In Power

Probably no jail time for what is arguably sedition.

Caught With The Goods, “Resistance” Treasury Employee Pleads Guilty

somehow she cut a deal, and won’t even go to jail

A former top Treasury Department official pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy for leaking confidential banking reports associated with members of the Trump campaign, following her dramatic arrest in October 2018 as she toted a flash drive full of sensitive documents.

Natalie Edwards, 41, entered the plea in Manhattan federal court, where U.S. District Judge Gregory H. Woods set sentencing for June 9. Although the conspiracy charge carried a potential penalty of up to five years in prison, Edwards signed a plea deal with prosecutors that recommended a potential prison sentence of zero to six months.

Edwards was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, also known as FinCEN. Prosecutors said her crime began in October 2017 and continued for a year, with Edwards sending a BuzzFeed News reporter numerous Suspicious Activity Reports (“SARs”). Banks must file SARs with the Treasury Department when they spot transactions raising questions about possible financial misconduct such as money laundering, but federal law strictly limited their disclosure.

The SARs related to wire transfers made by Paul Manafort and other figures in former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, including campaign official Richard Gates, Maria Butina and the Russian Embassy.

As law enforcement swooped in, she was carrying a government-issued USB flash drive containing not only thousands of SARs, but also “highly sensitive material relating to Russia, Iran, and the terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,” prosecutors said.

Hey, it’s the little fish that fry. The big ones are always catch and release. Unless they get harpooned, which is rare.

So what’s her deal? She’s a little fish, relatively. The woman broke several laws, security violations, and was doing espionage against her own government. That’s sedition at best. So she walks away?

Oh right, I forgot. Laws are only applied to Republicans. Democrats always get a pass, because OrangeManBad.

She must have ratted out somebody big. Better not visit Arkansas honey.

That Ruse Didn’t Last Long

Iran Shot Down Uke Airliner With Russian Mobile AA Missiles

image

The Ukrainian flight that crashed just outside the Iranian capital of Tehran was struck by an anti-aircraft missile system, a Pentagon official, a senior U.S. intelligence official and an Iraqi intelligence official told Newsweek.

Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, a Boeing 737–800 en route from Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airpot to Kyiv’s Boryspil International Airport, stopped transmitting data Tuesday just minutes after takeoff and not long after Iran launched missiles at military bases housing U.S. and allied forces in neighboring Iraq. The aircraft is believed to have been struck by a Russia-built Tor-M1 surface-to-air missile system, known to NATO as Gauntlet, the three officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter, told Newsweek.

Newsweek reported the flight that crashed just outside Tehran late on Tuesday was struck by the Russia-built Tor-M1 system also known as Gauntlet.

The two Pentagon officials told the magazine that the tragedy was accidental.

Reuters also cited US officials as it reported the plane was most likely brought down accidentally by Iranian air defences.

One US official said US satellites had detected the launch of two missiles shortly before the plane crashed, followed by evidence of an explosion.

Two officials said Washington believed the downing of the plane was accidental.

The Associated Press quoted two US officials saying it is “highly likely” an Iranian anti-aircraft missile brought down the passenger plane.

The crash occurred soon after Iran launched missiles at military bases housing US troops in neighbouring Iraq amid a confrontation with Washington over the drone strike that killed an Iranian general last week.

The Ukrainian International Airlines Boeing 737-800, flying to Kiev and carrying mostly Iranians and Iranian-Canadians, crashed shortly after taking off from Tehran’s Imam Khomeini airport, killing all 176 people on board.

Yes, “accidental” in that it was not officially sanctioned and ordered from the top down. And some unidentified Achmed will take the blame, if he’s ever found. Iran had fired 15 missiles into Iraq a few hours earlier, but managed to not hit anything. Pretty amazing, given that those missiles are precise enough to hit within 2 meters of their target; each carries a 650lb bomb in the nose. So either they missed on purpose (by agreement via back channel diplomacy; we KNEW the missiles were coming before they were launched, or because our guys can jamb or override their guidance systems), or the whole launch was just bearding the lion, trying to prompt a response ... like a bombing raid against Tehran, where they could then play the victim card while also shooting some Great Satan weapon out of the sky in full view of everyone in their capital city.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/ukrainian-airplane-shot-down-by-mistake-by-iranian-anti-aircraft-missile-pentagon-officials-believe

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tor_missile_system#9K331_Tor_M1
https://www.rt.com/news/russian-tor-missile-unique-794/
https://www.armyrecognition.com/russia_russian_missile_system_vehicle_uk/tor-m2_tor-m2e_sa-15d_short_range_air_defense_missile_system_data_sheet_specifications_information.html
https://www.ausairpower.net/APA-Rus-SAM-AAA-Footage.html
https://www.ausairpower.net/APA-9K331-Tor.html#mozTocId307602

The reports say that the Iranians have the Tor-M1 system, but that’s old tech at this point. We have no idea if they’ve upgraded to the -M2 or later versions. Probably. While the system isn’t quite an “Iron Dome”, it’s pretty damn modern, mobile, linkable, jam resistant, fast firing, and effective. Each launch vehicle carries 2 packs of 4 of their 9331 anti-aircraft missiles, and can track and fire on multiple targets, small fast ones at low altitude, possibly while still moving. And now we know that at least 2 missiles were launched. With that good a system, that big, close, and slow a target, that means two hits, guaranteed.

The TOR-M2 / M2E is designed to attack aircraft, helicopters, aerodynamic UAVs, guided missiles and other components of high precision weapons flying at medium, low and extremely low altitudes in adverse air and jamming environment. The Tor-M2 missile system can be mounted on wheeled or tracked chassis. The Tor-M2 doubles the number of targets that can be engaged simultaneously by a single combat vehicle to four. The Armenian Armed Forces have received the latest TOR-M2KM surface-to-air defense missile systems, according to a statement published on December 21, 2019, to the official website of the Armenian Ministry of Defence.

So perhaps this is the actual revenge they promised, and the other missile attack was just a fireworks show. Now let’s find out just how many of the citizens of all those countries on board the plane were actually Iranian ex-pats, going home from a visit to the old country. Would Iran shoot down a plane filled with their own people, just to get some “sand cred”? Why not? We’ve got hundreds of SJW Climate Savers setting Australia ablaze to “prove their point”, and ... surprise!!! ... a large part of them are muzzy immigrants. Them people be nutz.
It’s possible that Iran didn’t know who was on board. They might not have cared if they had. It’s possible that this was a real accident, some nervous Abu at the controls, knowing that Great Satan was probably going to drop a shitstorm all over his capital city.  But there may have been Jeffrey Epstein “suicide” levels of planning here, wheels within wheels. And not all of those wheels would spin in Tehran.

The world will write this off as an accident, and quickly look the other way. The Assatollahs win, Trump wins, Boris gets to make some noise in London, Trudeau gets to go extra dhimmi in Canada. And Israel gets threatened. In other words, just another Thursday.

Good to know that our side has such a lock on Tehran that they can spot and differentiate two nearly simultaneous heat blooms (missile launches) coming from only inches apart. From space. The 9331 missile isn’t very big. 4 of them fit into a firing clip about the size of a king size mattress.

A Starbuck’s Mug Full Of Money

5 NJ Politicians Busted In Bribery Scandal

Five former and current public officials and political candidates in New Jersey are facing charges of taking bribes following a major corruption investigation, the state’s attorney general announced Thursday.

The five defendants are charged with taking thousands of dollars in bribes from a cooperating witness in the form of campaign contributions, Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said. In return, the defendants allegedly promised the cooperating witness, who is a tax attorney, that they would vote or use their official authority or influence to hire or continue to hire his law firm for lucrative government legal work.

Envelopes and paper bags filled with cash – and even a coffee cup stuffed with cash – were delivered to the defendants by the cooperating witness at restaurants, parking lots, a political fundraiser, and a campaign headquarters, according to Gurbir.  Other times the cooperating witness offered checks from illegal “straw donors” – which are individuals reimbursed to write checks to the defendant’s campaign in amounts that complied with the legal limit on individual donations.

The following five defendants were charged separately in criminal complaints with second-degree bribery in official and political matters:

Sudhan Thomas – Jersey City School Board President
Jason O’Donnell – Former State Assemblyman and Former Bayonne Mayoral Candidate
John Cesaro – Former Morris County Freeholder
John Windish – Former Mount Arlington Council Member
Mary Dougherty – Former Morris County Freeholder Candidate

The defendants who held public office at the time of the alleged conduct – Thomas, Cesaro and Windish – also are charged with second-degree acceptance or receipt of unlawful benefit by a public servant for official behavior.

But I thought New Jersey was a Pay To Play state? Doesn’t that make bribery legal??

Oh, and they’re all Democrats. That goes without saying.

And So It Begins

HOUSE VOTES TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP
DEMS: 229 YEA, 2 NAY, 1 “PRESENT”, 1 NOT VOTING
REPUBS: 0 YEA, 195 NAY, 2 NOT VOTING
IND: 1 YEA

totally partisan vote.

They are charging him with “obstruction of Congress” and “abuse of power”.

And now the darkest chapter of our nation’s history begins.

While I have the greatest confidence in our President’s innocence and ultimate victory, I know that this is a crapshoot. The world has lost it’s mind, and anything can happen.

I am very disquieted. Whatever happens, Trump is now branded. Whatever happens, the Overton Window has shifted and impeachment is now an acceptable political weapon. Expect every single future President to be impeached. This is a failure of our nation. We are changed forever.

And thank the Democrats for spoiling the holiday season for everyone.

President Donald Trump was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives Wednesday night, becoming only the third American chief executive to be formally charged under the Constitution’s ultimate remedy for high crimes and misdemeanors.

The historic vote split along party lines, much the way it has divided the nation, over the charges that the 45th president abused the power of his office by enlisting a foreign government to investigate a political rival ahead of the 2020 election. The House then approved a second charge, that he obstructed Congress in its investigation.

The articles of impeachment, the political equivalent of an indictment, now go to the Senate for trial. If Trump is acquitted by the Republican-led chamber, as expected, he would have to run for reelection carrying the enduring mark of impeachment on his purposely disruptive presidency.

And President Trump immediately went on the offensive, speaking to a SRO crowd in Michigan.

The representative Representative

A New Jersey Take On Van Drew’s Switching Parties

He knew that his constituents didn’t favor impeachment and his stance on voting no on impeachment of Donald Trump would get him primary-ed by the Democratic machine in New Jersey next year. He is in a mostly conservative Republican district. He figured he would have a better chance of staying in Congress if he switched parties. If his district was more Democratic, he would remain a Democrat.

When he won election to Congress in 2018, his Republican opponent was considered a bit of a nutjob and not a good candidate. That combined with the anti-Trump fever that was sweeping the country in the mid-term elections provided Van Drew with the win. Van Drew has climbed his way up the political ladder from Fire Commissioner to Freeholder to Assemblyman to State Senator to Congressman. He’s not about to be a one-term Congressman and go back to being a dentist.

Jeff is 66 years old and would like to finish his long years of service in Congress for as many years as he can. It has nothing to do with love of Donald Trump or a change of ideology. No doubt, he’s done some polling in his district and knows the Trump-hating Democrats in power won’t let him stay for his NO-vote on impeaching the President. But his constituents favor the job Trump is doing so he had to make a choice. It’s a calculated political move to keep him IN Washington and OUT of his old patients mouths. That’s all.

Yes, his move is politically expedient. But he is representing the will of the majority of his constituents. I’m pretty sure that’s what he should be doing, and I’m also pretty sure that there is no fine print that requires him to commit political suicide by doing so. So he made the right choice.

Now let’s see how much of a Republican - even a “Jersey Republican” - he becomes. I seem to recall that a certain New Englander was elected as a Republican specifically to vote against obamacare. Which he did, and then went right back to being a Dem, in RINO clothing.

the bottomless deep

You really want to read this essay at The Intercept, and then back it up with this one at Flopping Aces, along with nearly everything else he posts.

This system of unlimited domestic spying was built by both parties, which only rouse themselves to object when the power lies in the other side’s hands. Just last year, the vast majority of the GOP caucus joined with a minority of Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff to hand President Trump all-new domestic spying powers while blocking crucial reforms and safeguards to prevent abuse. The spying machinery that Edward Snowden risked his life and liberty to expose always has been, and still is, a bipartisan creation.

Perhaps these revelations will finally lead to a realization about how rogue, and dangerous, these police state agencies have become, and how urgently needed is serious reform. But if nothing else, it must serve as a tonic to the three years of unrelenting media propaganda that has deceived and misled millions of Americans into believing things that are simply untrue.

None of these journalists have acknowledged an iota of error in the wake of this report because they know that lying is not just permitted but encouraged as long as it pleases and vindicates the political beliefs of their audiences. Until that stops, credibility and faith in journalism will never be restored, and – despite how toxic it is to have a media that has no claim on credibility – that despised status will be fully deserved.

Yes, and Devin Nunes was right all along.

And so was candidate Donald Trump when he was ridiculed for saying his campaign was being spied on and wiretapped.

Oh, and Secretary of State Hillary somehow simply forget to mention that Qatar had donated a million bucks to her “foundation”.

We don’t need Donald Trump. We need 10,000 Donald Trumps. We need Donald Trump raised to the Donald Trump power. The rot is top to bottom, coast to coast, left to right. Throw the whole damn thing out and start over, or boil it down to the essentials and keep the few honest and moral workers. Heh, that kind of implies that the Tea Party was right all along too. I knew that.

I’m feeling very revolutionary this week. Last week too. Just because I’m not posting much on this BS doesn’t mean I’m not paying it some attention. There are so many lies from so many liars that it’s a dark tunnel of spider webs. A coup, wrapped in lies, inside an enigma enema, but perhaps there is a key. That key is Leftist control.

Impeachment Vote Today?

How Auspicious: Dem’s Move Impeachment Vote To Friday The 13th

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler postponed a planned impeachment vote late Thursday night, infuriating Republicans who were not consulted about the schedule change, and prompting ranking member Doug Collins to say, “This committee is more concerned about getting on TV in the morning than it was finishing its job tonight and letting the members go home.”

A short time later, Collins spoke to reporters:

“I have just witnessed just the most bush-league stunt I’ve ever witnessed in my professional life,” Collins said after Nadler abruptly ended the 14-hour impeachment debate late Thursday night, telling the committee to return at 10 a.m. on this Friday the 13th to vote.

Yup, that’s in less than half an hour. Oh joy.

UPDATE:  And now they’ve done it.

The House Judiciary Committee on Friday voted to adopt two articles of impeachment against President Trump – capping a contentious three-day session that Republicans panned as a “kangaroo court” and teeing up a historic floor vote right before the holiday break.

The committee adopted both articles, alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, on a party-line vote of 23-17. A final roll call in the full House is expected next week, which could trigger a Senate trial in the new year just as presidential primaries are set to get underway.

Good thing that “abuse of power” isn’t actually a crime and is entirely a matter of opinion, and that “obstruction of Congress” isn’t either, and is a post-inquiry “process crime” open to interpretation, and is something that the chief executive is exempt from according to DOJ standards.

So this should be another Schiff-show.

I can’t wait until the next 3 times they impeach President Trump, because sooner or later the country is going to wake up and take action. Soap box, ballot box, jury box, ... .
