I’ve embedded the stream sitewide so people can listen or comment here as the hearing progresses.

This the equivalent of when they tried to bring criminal charges against johnson for suspending parliament. Just the desperate in the last chance saloon.

Tomorrow’s fish and chip paper.


Propaganda again. Well timed. The only thing you need to know is that this is Democrats’ attempt to smear a Republican President they hate because he’s so successful.


This is a total witch hunt. Joe Biden colluded with Hunter Biden to steal money and meddle in the affairs of the Ukraine. President Trump opened an investigation and one or both of those filthy rat Bidens will go to jail.


Great more bickering and bullshit while our country falls apart. The Congress is flaming dumpster fire.

This will be an important and historic event for all of the senators who are up for re-election and need 30-second sound bites for their TV ads. This is a joke.

Much as they deserve it, neither Biden will be going to jail, at least not for the Ukrain shakedown. Trump won’t allow prosecution while Joe is running. After the election establishment Republicans will insist Trump refrain in the interest of unity.

It’s actually not a joke. We had a whole revolution about the King of England’s abuse of power and we pretty much settled it in our favor. It is why the constitution allows for impeachment, abuse of power. And, oh by the way, the president doesn’t have to commit a statutory crime to be impeached. Abuse of power will pretty much do it! The articles of impeachment are pretty specific on how the Donald abused power.

Oh…so that’s what you guys want to stick now? What happened to Russia and Mueller?

10 bucks says these dickless dumbasses are going to allow Trump to get railroaded. So tired of seeing these slow-talking crust machines droning on about fairness for the past few years. Republicans and Dems are absolutely useless and spending our money to fuck with the guy we voted for. If they all end up dropping off the face of the Earth tomorrow I can’t say they would be missed.

New York magazine’s Ed Kilgore recently offered up yours truly as a prototypical Trump supporter who has ignored the “key lesson from 2016.” Quoting an excerpt from an October article in which I suggested that impeachment enhances Trump’s 2020 prospects when combined with a strong economy and a weak Democratic challenger, he suggested that “triumphalist braying from Trump, his campaign, his party, and his media allies, will persuade some of his own voters that he’s already won, so it’s safe to spend Election Day in other pursuits.” Kilgore obviously believes that such complacency in the HRC camp caused Trump’s 2016 victory.

Kilgore, like many partisan journalists and the Democrats they parrot, still hasn’t faced the blindingly obvious reason Clinton lost. While it is unquestionably true that the latter was overconfident, and this led to numerous campaign blunders, the main reason HRC was beaten is that she represented a status quo characterized by chronic corruption, anemic economic performance, and transparent contempt for the voters. Moreover, the claim that Trump’s 2020 reelection team is as overconfident as was the Clinton campaign fails the laugh test. Whereas HRC’s campaign took entire states for granted, Trump’s team is systematically reaching beyond his base:

Brad Parscale, the manager of the Trump campaign, is very data-driven and, following most rallies, he reports statistics about the attendees.… On average, 23% of rally goers identify as Democrats. For Toledo, OH, this number was 21.9%.… The really stunning stat from this rally, which Parscale has never reported on before, is that 20.9% of attendees identified as Independents.… This means that 42.8% of the 22,927 voters were either a Democrat or an Independent.

In addition, as Thomas Edsall at the New York Times recently put it, “Trump Is Winning the Online War.” Under Brad Parscale’s leadership, according to Edsall, “the Trump re-election machine has devoted millions more than any individual Democrat to increasingly sophisticated microtargeting techniques.” They have also been at it a long time. Since 2016 the Trump campaign has been working on techniques for identifying voters and developing electronic communication tools. The Trump campaign is now so far ahead of the Democrats in sophisticated microtargeting techniques that it is unlikely that any opponent will ever be able to catch up:

Even if the Democrats settle on a nominee by March 2020, he or she will have seven months to catch up with the work Trump and Parscale started four years earlier.… In high-tech political warfare, recent history shows that sitting presidents without primary challengers — Bush in 2004 and Obama in 2012 — developed voter contact weaponry that their opponents — John Kerry and Mitt Romney — had neither the time nor the money to match.

This brings us to the Democrats. Nancy Pelosi and her co-conspirators have, of course, impeached the president. Parscale and the Trump reelection campaign have used this farce as an opportunity to connect with more voters and raise additional cash. AP reports, “Since the impeachment proceedings began, the Republican National Committee has seen 600,000 new donors. The campaign and the RNC took in $10 million in small-dollar donations in just 48 hours during impeachment week.” Meanwhile, the social media strategy favored by Democratic presidential frontrunner, Joe Biden, is to threaten Facebook and its founder.

Biden’s real problem with Facebook is that he doesn’t have the money to compete with Trump on social media. His fundraising during the most recent quarter, though it produced his best haul thus far in the campaign, is half of what President Trump brought in during the same period. Moreover, it’s less than Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg brought in. Thus, this Twitter announcement is really quite pathetic: “I’m excited to share that we raised $22.7 million this last quarter — our biggest quarter so far this campaign! Thank you to everyone who chipped in what you could — your support means the world to me. You truly are the heart of our campaign.”

If this is the “heart” of his campaign, a visit to the cardiologist may be in order. Biden hasn’t a prayer of winning the Democratic nomination, much less the general election, if he can’t do any better than this. Finally, as if “the party of Jefferson and Jackson” didn’t have enough problems, Virginia’s Democratic governor, Ralph Northam, spent MLK’s birthday hiding from the Commonwealth’s citizens who came to Richmond about a couple of Draconian gun control laws. Gov. Northam and his legislative accomplices lied about their Second Amendment positions during the recent election, and the voters were less than pleased with “Coonman.”

All of which brings us back to Ed Kilgore’s theory about overconfidence and the “key lesson from 2016.” Perhaps the actual lesson — considering Trump’s continued successes in the face of quotidian slander by the legacy media, years of federal and congressional investigations based on implausible conspiracy theories, a hyper-partisan impeachment based on hearsay, and an upcoming Senate trial pursuant to offenses that wouldn’t justify removing him from office even if they were true — is that Democrats can no longer be trusted with power. The Democrats themselves will never absorb this lesson, however. They still don’t get how Trump won in 2016.“

Let’s hope the farce partisan impeachment is opened and closed quickly. Shame on the waste of government resources inflicted on the country.

I wonder what their next shitick is going to be when Trump is exonerated and wins re-election? I am going to be bathing in liberal tears! You know a wounded animal when you see one! That’s what this is all about! Next comes the fun part! Public hangings and train rides!

I don’t know but they apparently aren’t getting the message that the American people are completely fed up with this nonsense.

Let me get this straight… you’re saying that a phone call is an abuse of power?!? That’s what this whole sham is based on! A fucking phone call between two world leaders. Are we going to start making conversations between world leaders an impeachable offense? If so, it’s time to drag Obama’s ass out of retirement and impeach that idiot for his comment to Russia that he would have more flexibility after the election. You want Russian collusion? There it is.


That’s what BOTH Dershowitz and Graham said back during the Clinton witch-hunt and impeachment when the shoe was on the other foot. Not only is Dershowitz a hypocrite, but he’s a sleaze ball for representing Epstein who the right here had a hay day with a few months back when he was in the news. As they posted thread upon thread spotlighting various liberals and their association with him. Now suddenly he’s deserving of representation and Dershowitz’s defense of the one they all labeled in such foul terms is applauded.

Naked hypocrisy.

Here comes the Monte Clown show!

When you are president of the United States and 500 million dollars is at stake, and you tether that money to the announcement of an investigation into your chief political rival, yeah. And you’d have NO TROUBLE seeing it if we were talking about Obama doing the same.

SOME…American people.
