Yes, Dizzy Izzy is going to have money troubles. The DNC still is millions in debt. It's not just the Presidential run the Donkey party has to worry about.. How many LIBS are up for re-election? Yup, even AOC could be kicked to the curb.
Proggys are hurting for OPM.

As for the steaming pile of Schiff, even Emery sticks by him.
It's OK to fabricate.. The end justifies the means.
Biden's corruption is fair game in my book. Corruption is criminal. Even in the Ukraine.(depending on who's running the place at the time)
Biden used taxpayer money as extortion. "Lay off my boy or else!" But our Proggys want to look the other way.(like with all the rest of their Proggy pals dirty dealing in D.C. Hillary and her destruction of evidence comes to mind))

Thanks idiot! -

An LA Times columnist on Thursday touted fake polling news on support for impeachment, falsely claiming that a recent poll indicates that support for impeaching the president is growing.

“Literally NOT WHAT THE POLL SAYS!!!!” One America News’s Ryan James Girdusky wrote, adding, “Reporters… You wanna stop being called the enemy of the people… THEN STOP MAKING UP BULLSHIT”:

A Quinnipiac University poll published Wednesday revealed low support for impeachment, with 37 percent of Americans in favor and 57 percent disapproving of such a measure.

A slew polls have paralleled Quinnipiac’s findings, with the majority of Americans opposing impeaching the president. Despite lack of public support or a legitimate impeachable offense, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) officially announced the formal impeachment inquiry this week.

DonB 301pm - It was reported that Pelosi specifically avoided the use of "formal" to describe the impeachment inquiry underway, and instead used "official". The former is a constitutional term of art, the latter is just bullshit for her constituents and has no 'formal' procedural requirements for the House to follow. I posted on this in the 23sep19 Scattershots.

Lies, more lies, and Democrats. The whistleblower’s complaint reads like the news reports from Jan, 2017 until Comey was fired and Mueller hired. Anonymous sources, leaks from the Deep Swamp, public information, news clippings to justify a probe, gossip, rumors, blah, blah, blah.

And herein lies the problem: “DOJ officials determined that the complaint was statutorily deficient since the president is an independent constitutional officer who is not subordinate to unelected intelligence agency bureaucrats.”

https://thefederalist.com/2019/09/26/complaint-from-so-called-whistleblower-is-riddled-with-gossip-blatant-falsehoods/

The lawyer for the Whistleblower donated to Biden’s campaign this year and a top Romney’s foreign policy advisor served on the board of the energy company with Hunter Biden. Anyway......I really thought I was reading the Enemy of the People’s accounting for the Russian probe, lol.

Re: If you nominate Loony Liz, you won't get any money from us.', say heavy Dem donors to the DNC.

But, but, but what about Creepy Sleepy Joe????

“Joe Biden has an even bigger problem: This issue has begun to dominate the news at an especially vulnerable moment for his campaign.

“Biden’s stumbles and gaffes have already raised alarms among his followers and been seized upon by rivals such as Cory Booker, who has publicly suggested that the 76-year-old former vice president is losing it.

Biden’s lead in the polls also appears shakier with each month. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has just taken a narrow lead in a Des Moines Register poll and crusading against Beltway corruption is central to her campaign.

“Too many politicians in both parties have convinced themselves that playing the money-for-influence game is the only way to get things done,” Warren told her massive rally in New York City: “No more business as usual. Let’s attack the corruption head on.”

Soon, it will not only be Trump and Giuliani asking Biden questions abut Ukraine, Burisma and Hunter, but Democrats, too. Calls are rising for Biden’s son to be called to testify before congressional committees.

With Trump airing new charges daily, Biden will be asked to respond by his traveling press. The charges and the countercharges will become what the presidential campaign is all about. Bad news for Joe Biden.

Can he afford to spend weeks, perhaps months, answering for his son’s past schemes to enrich himself through connections to foreign regimes that seem less related to Hunter’s talents than his being the son of a former vice president and possible future president?

“Ukraine-gate” is the latest battle in the death struggle between the “deep state” and a president empowered by Middle America to go to Washington and break that deep state’s grip on the national destiny.“

Just watched McGuire testifying to Adam Schiff BS committee. Paul Emery should be outraged against his fellow democrats. None who served and who attacked this Navy vet of 40 years. He is a man of honor and yet the Paul Emery pals who never served a minute were so disrespectful it made me cringe. So Paul Emery let's see you hold your democrat pals to 6task for attacking that good man.

Scott O

The current Ukrainian freakout by the Dems is because Trump re-opened a can of worms the Dems absolutely don't want to hear about. Even the LS news carried the stories of Biden and his white-powder-nosed son.
There wasn't any whistle-blowing. It was "hey, guys - Trump is on to us"!
Expect this to become a ridiculous mess.

Scott O

Todd 4:14 - Paul Emery's 'outrage' is so selective as to its targets that one wonders if the man has any moral center of any kind. Human life is some what important depending on the situation and ants on the porch are often screamed about while running down Broad Street (hair on fire) while total demolition of dwellings is completely ignored.

Scott O

Forgot to add - CrowdStrike. Another huge can o' worms the Dems don't want opened up. Recall that Hillary's server was never seized and examined by any US govt agency.

Scott O

Correction - the CrowdStrike connection was the DNC server.
Neither Hillary's nor the DNC's servers were ever seized and secured by the proper authorities.
Hillary 'cleaned up' her own server, while CrowdStrike 'informed' the US govt about the DNC's server.

Money quote - "It is true that the servers themselves were not physically examined by the FBI, but CrowdStrike, which has a former senior FBI official on its executive team, gave forensic evidence to federal investigators, including exact replicas of the data contained on the servers."
Total comedy for idiots!
They have a 'former senior FBI official on its executive team...'
Oh, jolly good - a 'former' FBI official who we're not going to name.
And he's on their 'executive' team. That says to me he knows not Jack nor shit.
And they turned over 'exact replicas' of the server.
Cause they say so.
Uh - why not just turn over the servers?
Well - you know...
They're really big and heavy and stuff...
Listen folks - I worked in IT for decades and this is total BS.
I don't give a crap what you think of Trump - this issue with Hillary's servers and the DNC's servers is completely wack.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/10/17/hunter-biden-drug-test/17427857/
"The younger son of Vice President Joe Biden failed a drug test for cocaine, a month after his commissioning last year into the Navy Reserve and was discharged.

Hunter Biden, an ensign, had been selected for commission as a reserve officer through the Direct Commission Officer program in 2012, according to Cmdr. Ryan Perry, a Navy spokesman. He was commissioned into the Navy Reserve unit for Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va. Biden, who had no prior military experience, was one of six officers commissioned nationally into the Navy Reserve public affairs division."

Daddy got him in at the age of 44?,,, WTF????

Let's not forget the rental car Biden's son turned in late, away from the office, with the keys in the gas filler compartment rather than in the night drop at the office and some rather unusual items found in the car, along with his ID.

You are on to something. Must read for you....if you accept the assignment. :)

**Former CIA official on whistleblower: ‘How could this be an intelligence matter?’

“I am very familiar with transcripts of presidential phone calls since I edited and processed dozens of them when I worked for the NSC. I also know a lot about intelligence whistleblowers from my time with the CIA.

“My suspicions grew this morning when I saw the declassified whistleblowing complaint. It appears to be written by a law professor and includes legal references and detailed footnotes. It also has an unusual legalistic reference on how this complaint should be classified.

“From my experience, such an extremely polished whistleblowing complaint is unheard of. This document looks as if this leaker had outside help, possibly from congressional members or staff.”

https://nypost.com/2019/09/26/former-cia-official-on-whistleblower-how-could-this-be-an-intelligence-matter/

What did Shifflips know and when did he know it? Who was the first person the whistleblower went to?

Bill Tozer

More from the former CIA analysis and former chief of staff for the NSA

“As a former CIA analyst and former NSC official who edited transcripts of POTUS phone calls with foreign leaders, here are my thoughts on the whistleblower complaint which was just released,” begins Fleitz. “This is not an intelligence matter. It is a policy matter and a complaint about differences over policy. Presidential phone calls are not an intelligence concern. The fact that IC officers transcribe these calls does not give the IC IG jurisdiction over these calls. It appears that rules restricting access and knowledge of these sensitive calls was breached. This official was not on this call, not on the approved dissem list and should not have been briefed on the call.”

“Fleitz goes on to say that the “whistleblower” clearly had help in authoring the report and wondered if he spoke to House Intelligence Committee members beforehand.

“The way this complaint was written suggested the author had a lot of help. I know from my work on the House Intel Commitee staff that many whistleblowers go directly to the intel oversight committees. Did this whistleblower first meet with House Intel committee members?” ponders Fleitz. “It is therefore important that Congress find out where this complaint came from. What did House and Senate intel committee dem members and staff know about it and when? Did they help orchestrate this complaint?”

“This complaint will further damage IC relations with the White House for many years to come because IC officers appear to be politicizing presidential phone calls with foreign officials and their access to the president and his activities in the White House,” says Fleitz. “Worst of all, this IC officer — and probably others — have blatantly crossed the line into policy. This violates a core responsibility of IC officers is to inform, but not make policy. This is such a grievous violation of trust between the IC and the White House that it would not surprise me if IC officers are barred from all access to POTUS phone calls with foreign officials.”

Fleitz’s assertions that the “whistleblower” complaint clearly had a political motivation matches a report from the underlying inspector general.“

Lol. The Enemy of the Truth busted again.

**“Media Report Trump’s Ukraine Call ‘Preconditioned’ On Discussing Hunter Biden. That Was A Lie.”

“However, after the report permeated the news cycle, it was revealed that ABC’s source is no longer an advisor to Zelenskiy, nor was he during the July 25 call.

“Setting record straight: [Leshchenko] confirmed to me what those of us in Kyiv already knew—he is NOT currently an advisor to Ukraine’s Zelenskiy & wasn’t at time of July 25 call,” said Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty correspondent Christopher Miller, who specifically covers Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus.

Miller also said that Leshchenko “said he DID NOT tell ABC insistence for leaders to discuss Biden probe was precondition for call.”

More Wile E Coyote deja vu

Senate Judiciary Letter To DOJ: Ukraine Helped Clinton Campaign, DNC

Additionally, a July 2017 letter from the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein raised concerns over reports that Ukraine’s political leadership “opposed the candidacy of Donald Trump for president of the United States and worked with a Democratic National Committee consultant to undermine his campaign.”

“This consultant allegedly had various meetings with Ukrainian government officials, including embassy staff, to coordinate the dissemination of incriminating information about Trump campaign officials,” wrote Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) in a press release announcing the letter. “It appears that this consultant was operating to advance the interests of both the Democratic National Committee, the Clinton campaign, and a foreign government, which would have required registration under FARA.”....

“Reporting indicates that the Democratic National Committee encouraged Chalupa to interface with Ukrainian embassy staff to “arrange an interview in which Poroshenko [the president of Ukraine] might discuss Manafort’s ties to Yanukovych.”[5] Chalupa also met with Valeriy Chaly, Ukraine’s ambassador to the U.S., and Oksana Shulyar, a top aid to the Ukrainian ambassador in March 2016 and shared her alleged concerns about Manafort. Reports state that the purpose of their initial meeting was to “organize a June reception at the embassy to promote Ukraine.” However, another Ukrainian embassy official, Andrii Telizhenko, told Politico that Shulyar instructed him to assist Chalupa with research to connect Trump, Manafort, and the Russians. He reportedly said, “[t]hey were coordinating an investigation with the Hillary team on Paul Manafort with Alexandra Chalupa” and that “Oksana [Shulyar] was keeping it all quiet…the embassy worked very closely with” Chalupa.[6]

“Chalupa’s actions appear to show that she was simultaneously working on behalf of a foreign government, Ukraine, and on behalf of the DNC and Clinton campaign, in an effort to influence not only the U.S voting population but U.S. government officials. Indeed, Telizhenko recalled that Chalupa told him and Shulyar, “[i]f we can get enough information on Paul [Manafort] or Trump’s involvement with Russia, she can get a hearing in Congress by September.”[7] Later, Chalupa did reportedly meet with staff in the office of Democratic representative Marcy Kaptur to discuss a congressional investigation. Such a public investigation would not only benefit the Hillary Clinton campaign, but it would benefit the Ukrainian government, which, at the time, was working against the Trump campaign. When Politico attempted to ask Rep. Kaptur’s office about the meeting, the office called it a “touchy subject.”

“6. Are you investigating the Ukrainian government’s intervention in the 2016 presidential election on behalf of the Clinton campaign? If not, why not?

“7. Are you investigating links and coordination between the Ukrainian government and individuals associated with the campaign of Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee? If not, why not?”

Interesting bit of news uncovered by real (non-lazy) journalists.

Federal records show that the intelligence community secretly revised the formal whistleblower complaint form in August 2019 to eliminate the requirement of direct, first-hand knowledge of wrongdoing.

“It is not known precisely when the August 2019 revision to the whistleblower complaint form was approved, nor is it known which, if any, version of the Disclosure of Urgent Concern form the complainant completed prior to addressing his complaint to Congress.

Reached by phone on Friday afternoon, a Director of National Intelligence official refused to comment on any questions about the secret revision to the whistleblower form, including when it was revised to eliminate the requirement of first-hand knowledge and for what reason.”

Transferred from Sandbox -

OK, the Ukraine guy says I want to buy some missiles from the USA. Trump says ok, but adds that he would like Ukraine to cleanup their act regarding the corruption in their country and uses the Biden family and Burisma as an example. Everyone goes crazy because you can't ask someone to take out your potential competition. Doesn't matter that Joe brags about shaking down the Ukraines when he was VP. Ok, Ukraine, you don't believe me then just call the President. So Joe gets a pass just because he happens to be a candidate?
And you wonder why there has been no comment about this from Obama???? Or why Obama has not endorsed his former VP????
Or that the White House supposedly moved the info from the call to a secure government server. At least it was a government server and not a private server located in Colorado or Nebraska, or wherever, like HH did with her state department stuff.

“The “whistleblower” and his media allies make a big deal of the Trump administration’s alleged attempt to secure the transcript from the likes of him. Re makes the obvious point: “The Trump administration reportedly began placing transcripts of Trump’s calls with several foreign leaders in a highly classified repository after leakers publicly divulged the contents of Trump’s private calls with the leaders of Mexico and Australia in 2017.” This escapes the savants at Lawfare.”

Cry us a river Barron Von Proggy. Just why should the taxpayers in other states subsidize your tax refund? And you have the brass ones to call Bill a Commie bastard?

One man’s meat is another man’s poison. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Got git what you git and you don’t throw a hissy fit.

Here’s a bone for Greta von Barron: Sizzlers gives you a senior discount at 50. The liked me so I got 25% when I was 35. It’s fo us po folk. :)

As VP Biden said, it’s your Patriotic duty to your pay taxes. Your taxes, not mine.

Bill Tozer

Taxes? Just call me a Yellow Vester. The taxes are just too damn high. Hurts the working man the most. Now, let’s protest that CA gas tax. What’s the nat’l average? 2.49/gallon or sumthang. Heard it went up 3 cents.

Yeah Todd, since I never go to bed late in a drunken lonely stupor I tend to get up early and read and/or work. 4-8 am can actually be some of the most productive hours of the day. I usually don’t pee until about 5. But I’m sure you keep a close eye on your prostate every day since your head is always up your ass.

OK Barron Von Proggy,, you enjoy paying generational welfare?
Paying people who refuse to get off drugs and can't get jobs because of it? Social services is supposed to be a stop gap. NOT a way of life.
How many homeless have YOU taken off the streets?

They really hate anyone who voted against them -

“Washington was always a circus,” Cruz said. “This is three rings with all the clowns. And it’s nuts right now. And it’s driven at the end of the day — congressional Democrats are angry. They’re angry about the 2016 election. Ultimately, they’re angry at the voters. They’re angry that the voters elected President Trump. All of this from day one — from day one, they had been wanting to get this president out of office. And as a result, they’re not doing their job. They’re not actually interested in legislating. They’re not interested in working together to produce more jobs and wages and expand opportunity. It’s just about attacking the president.”

JB - There is no way to connect the 2 other than in the uneducated imagination of left wing wackos.
No one has a private jet BECAUSE a needy child didn't get breakfast.
All conservatives (not just wealthy ones) hate govt programs that keep poor people in a perpetual state of need. The wealthy pay a far higher rate of taxes than you. They provide far money in one month for the poor than you ever will in a year.
When will we ever hear about the responsibility of the poor child's parents in their upbringing? That seems to have gone AWOL.

"No one has a private jet BECAUSE a needy child didn't get breakfast"

Correcto mundo. Rich Republicans have jets because THOUSANDS of kids didn't get breakfast. All those little black and brown mouths add up, and if you can save enough in taxes by denying them breakfast, you win a jet. A penny saved is a penny earned.

Walt

"In the days following the announcement of the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry, the Trump campaign raised $15 million in small-dollar donations and gained tens of thousands of new donors."

And just when do the DEMS plan on paying off their multi-million dollar debt? Or are they paying it off in political favors?

Don Bessee

The little people are rising up against the socialist dems redux of the 2007 McCain hit kit. The swamp creatures got caught and Muller was a dud and noting has stuck and now the clintonistas lawyers write a whistle blower complaint that would not have qualified as a whistle blower before aug 2019. There used to be a standard of direct knowledge and poof that went away and they weaponize rumors and false clintonista narratives already blown up by the transcript.

Meanwhile after sifting through 3 million emails we are here and perhaps this added impetus to the latest hoax -

The U.S. State Department has ramped up its probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server usage, with investigators questioning numerous aides of the Obama-era official in recent weeks, according to a report.

On Saturday, the Washington Post reported State Department officials informed up to 130 Clinton aides that they were found to be “culpable” of handling information that was classified lower than they should have been when transmitted through the private server.

Don @ 7:24 pm. Thats old news if you read things like the forbidden “The Federalist”., :). 1) Repost.

https://thefederalist.com/2019/09/27/intel-community-secretly-gutted-requirement-of-first-hand-whistleblower-knowledge/
———————————————-
2) “Former national security adviser Susan Rice acknowledged last night that the Obama administration moved transcripts of conversations with foreign leaders onto the same top-secret server where the Trump administration stored his recent phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.”

https://thefederalist.com/2019/09/28/susan-rice-obama-put-call-transcripts-on-top-secret-server-too/
————————————————-
3) The more one looks, the more is revealed. Hunter Biden was scheduled to be interviewed by the Ukrainian anti-corruption prosecutor one week before Creepy Biden flew to Ukraine and ordered the investigation shut down or else the nation would face bankruptcy.

Ukraine is a Swamp. A very complicated Swamp, but a Obama-Hillary Swamp none the less. Anybody wonder why Tony Podesta suddenly out of the Blue shut down his office in Ukraine and got the hell out of there when Hillary & Swamp Inc. were going after Podesta’s business partner Paul Manafort and strong arming the former Ukrainian President to dig up dirt on Trump....or else.

Bottomline: This whole thing is beginning to smell like the Golden Shower Dossier. Yep, this whole thang is beginning to smell of the Essence of Hillary. Dishonest and corrupt. Everything My Gal Clinton touches is corrupted in short manner. It’s her turn!

Walt

Speaking of Hildabeast,, she better have her lawyers on standby.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/09/28/state-department-widens-investigation-into-clinton-email-server/
"A Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigation into Clinton’s server found at least 100 emails containing classified information, including 65 emails declared “Secret” and 22 regarded as “Top Secret.” Additionally, the State Department retroactively classified 2,093 emails that were not initially marked as such.

Some experts charge Clinton broke multiple laws, including 18 U.S. Code § 1924, which forbids “unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material.”

Don Bessee

You go GIRL! I kinda like creepy grampa joe but she may have a point with quid pro joe. -

The Trump years have been rough on Democrats’ sensibilities, and their thinking has become increasingly addled as a result. The party has worked tirelessly to create an issue worthy of impeaching the president—Russia collusion, obstruction of justice, Stormy Daniels, tax returns. This week Democrats jettisoned all that in favor of the only issue that implicates their own front-runner for the nomination. Genius.

The one person who has been as much in the news this week as Donald Trump is former Vice President Joe Biden. It’s a dubious accomplishment. The only way to discuss Mr. Trump’s nonsmoking-gun phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is to acknowledge the subject of the ruckus: Mr. Biden’s glaring conflicts of interest during his vice presidency vis-à-vis his son Hunter’s business interests. Since Democrats insist on making this all about Ukraine, get ready for daily new revelations about the young Mr. Biden’s questionable activities and “Quid Pro Joe’s” involvement.

10 reasons the Democrat impeachment fake story is falling apart

ROFLMAO!

Krugman: Either Trump Goes to Jail, or 'Thousands of Journalists' in 'Prison Camps'

Copy and Paste time!!!!!!!!!

“It should be noted this is the same Krugman who predicted after Trump was elected "If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never." Under Trump, the Dow Jones average is up 35.5 percent.

He also predicted "we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight." You wouldn't want him to be your financial adviser.

This kind of wild swinging is pretty typical for Krugman. On September 26, he suggested much of Wall Street is guilty of treason, since they signaled they won't back Elizabeth Warren, and might just vote Trump: "This sort of confirms Warren's whole worldview, doesn't? Big Finance, given the choice between treason and a wealth tax, chooses treason."
