The Morning Report 11/20/19

Good morning kids. Wednesday and for those of us living in the real world, the Democrats’ case for impeaching and removing Trump from office collapsed like a wet pierogi yesterday when its star witness, the puffy Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman (in service of whose army he wears the uniform for still a topic for debate). I’ll get to the particulars in a second but really, the most important thing to keep in mind that makes any and all of this utterly irrelevant is the transcript of the phone call between Presidents Trump and Zelensky was released about two weeks ago and there is nothing that was said that could even be remotely construed as an impeachable offense. Unlike the REO-Speedwagon-heard-it-from-a-friend-who-heard-it-from-a-friend mid level bureaucrats, traitors and flunkies who are just out and out liars with axes to grind, Lt. General Keith Kellog, who is Mike Pence’s national security advisor was actually on the call and has confirmed zero impropriety. Period. Full stop.

But, for those still keen on fabulists, Majorette Bearclaw’s testimony included admitting, much that it pained him to say so, that the President makes policy and it is not incumbent upon him to do what the State Dept. or others want, this after going to the NSC to bitch and moan about disagreeing with the President’s Ukraine policy. Can you say “insubordination?” He claimed that he advised the Ukrainian President not to trust the Russians, despite later admitting that he never had a private one-on-one with him. In any case it would be funny if he did say something so moronic considering Russia had already annexed Crimea, and who the hell is this fat sack of lipids to give advice to anyone? He also claimed he heard the word “Burisma” mentioned on the call despite not being on the transcript but that that was not a significant omission (pfft!) and conceded that Hunter Biden had zero qualifications for the alleged position he held at that company and most crucially that despite not knowing who the alleged “whistleblower” is gave a very distinct impression that he, Vindman, was a key source of information in the actual whistleblower complaint. And that’s when Schiff-for-Brains started banging the gavel like a crack-addicted chimpanzee playing drums for the Evolution Revolution.

Later on, it was the turn of former diplomat Kurt Volker to look like a jackass courtesy of Rep. Mike Turner: 

…”So I get to ask you. You had a meeting with the President of the United States, and you believe that the policy issues he raised concerning Ukraine were valid, correct?”

“Yes,” Volker said.

“Did the President of the United States ever say to you that he was not going to allow aid from the United States to go to the Ukraine unless there were investigations into Burisma, the Bidens, or the 2016 elections?” Turner asked.

“No, he did not,” Volker said.

Turner then asked, “Did the Ukrainians ever tell you that they understood that they would not get a meeting with the President of the United States, a phone call with the President of the United States, military aid, or foreign aid from the United States unless they undertook investigations of Burisma, the Bidens, or the 2016 elections?”

“No, they did not,” Volker said.

Turner noted that Volker’s answers essentially dismantled the Democrats’ entire case for impeaching Trump.

“Pretty much, Ambassador Volker, you just, like, took apart their entire case,” Turner said.

So, okay. So far all of the so-called “star witnesses” who we were assured had the smoking gun evidence to remove Trump from office have only made the Democrats and the Media look like the real criminals in the eyes of the American people. More and more are finding this whole thing to be a sham and a hit job to take out Trump. This is turning into a titanic disaster for the Democrats no matter how you slice it. If they do impeach him in the House, which I am sure they are going to have to do, there is no way in hell the Senate will vote to convict. Even if you got a few of the probable defectors to vote with the Dems, the end result is Trump will have been found innocent in a trial, and that is a political disaster for Palsi and the party. Probably, it’s a worse disaster than if she pulls the plug and enrages her base. 

Beyond the politics of all this is the fact that individuals like Vindman, Volker, Yovanovitch as well as the other names we’ve come to know and loathe like Page, Strzok, McCabe, Ohr and all the rest represent a cancer on the republic. Vindman’s actions and attitude underscore their belief that they control the direction of the nation, and not the people or the politicians they elect for a few years at a stretch. In the case of the State Department and the Intelligence Community, given all we have learned over the past three years and longer, America’s national security would not be affected negatively in any significant way if the CIA, NSA and the State Dept. were simply abolished. In fact, you could argue that it would improve. And what of all the other federal agencies and departments that control our lives and issue edicts and rules that have the full effect of law, despite the fact that none of the people issuing them have ever been elected and its damned near impossible to fire them? Collectively, they have the same damned attitude of Vindman. It’s a fatal conceit that is already having dire consequences on the body politic.



Meanwhile, the connections between the Ukraine-gate sham-peachment and the Russian collusion coup attempt are becoming clearer, and will loom larger as Barr, Durham and Horowitz finally reveal all. And the last link underscores the tail end of my opening editorial.


Meh, with a GOP not even running candidates, why even waste the money?


To the border we go where Al “Not-Let’s-Stay-Together” Green shows his complete lack of intelligence, agitprop media retracts story meant to smear Trump with the record of Obama, and the reason the Chamber of Commerce loves them some open borders.


Abject brown-shirt thuggery at SUNY Binghamton where conservative students are attacked by Leftists and the campus does nothing except blame the victims, a look at the looming Civil War 2.0, and sick Florida woman gets slap on the wrist for attacking Matt Gaetz. She could have easily done a James Hodgkinson, but then the gun-grabbers would be shoving our noses in it.


The Lutheran church has been coopted and although I agree with Ms. Pipko, unfortunately, the fact is most American Jews left Judaism and converted to Democrat-Leftist as their religion.


Steve Bullock who is polling in negative numbers does a rhetorical Tawana Brawley on his face, DNC tells Politico no fighting in the war room, Democrats still wailing and rending cloth over 2016, Maizie Hirohito is a detestable slag, and we can expect more apologies from Doomberg if he fancies any chance to run as a Democrat.


PayPal no longer servicing PornHub.


Pro-Life legal eagles to help David Daleidin to appeal case and Steve Bullock yet again, this time flip-flopping on abortion.


Mullahs mobilize Farsi Gestapo to suppress massive rioting, US deploys more troops as a reaction and unlike Obama 10 years ago, Trump should be vocally supporting the Iranian people. That regime has got to go and better we should help the people to dump the Mullahs now. Over in Hong Kong, the Chi-Coms have begun arresting protesters who apparently are taking to the sewers to evade the blockade, of course the EU chief blasts Pompeo and the US’ new policy on Israeli settlements, another essay on Deep State State Dept. sabotage, time to dump Qatar, three links on the Chi-Com concentration camps and ethnic cleansing of Uighurs, and the resurgence with a vengeance of Joo-hatred courtesy of our so-called global intellectual elite.


Meh, Bill and Hillary sold us out 25 years ago with Loral Space.


I love Trump and even with the impeachment and other assaults on him, I wish he could do something about this. In fact, smaller government is in his and our best interest all the way around. Lastly, more naked IRS guys with the glass of wine in the Vegas jacuzzi.


Trump puts screws to Chi-Coms to get them to do that trade deal, Powell and Trump lock horns, but nicely, and this “Move to Amend” is an outright Marxist seizing of the means of production. 


Epstein’s guards at the MCC arrested for doing what they were told by those who assisted his suicide, London cops giving out stabbing first aid kits to pubs in light of knife attack epidemic and the anarchists and their anti-prison and anti-punishment madness and what it has brought and will bring.


Dems read from Shit That Jefferson Said, Volume 2 which is funny considering how they vilify him as a cracker slave owner, UVA shamed into reinstating 21-gun salute and on the Marxist brainwashing of the academy.


Two about this Medicare-for-All disaster.


Wolfgang Puck serves up some truth for Hollywood climate hypocrites.


You knew this was bound to happen, and they don’t want equality; they want you punished and subjugated.


ACLU giving me a nosebleed, Christian Toto on Dennis Miller’s reaction to Charlie’s Anals flopping, a warning to those who donate to museums and colleges, another look at this Chesa Boudin character, and finally, what we are witnessing all over the place is a result of the rejection of the Globalist plan.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.
