OUCH!!! This is going to be tough for the LIBS to take.

"Rep. Jeff Van Drew, D-N.J., met with President Trump on Friday to discuss going across party lines and joining the Republican Party -- this after he has spent months criticizing fellow Democrats for their push to impeach Trump."

If they do it @ 513 they may be right -

According to a survey conducted by the American Jewish Committee, 54% of Orthodox Jews said that they voted for Trump in 2016. One year into his presidency, 71% of Orthodox Jews supported him, and that was before he commuted the sentence of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin and recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Then in 2018, in a Tri-State-area poll commissioned by Ami Magazine, 82% of respondents said that they would vote for Trump in 2020. And as this year’s Ami poll reveals, support for the president has now hit a whopping 89%. What this upward trajectory makes abundantly clear is that more and more Orthodox Jews are fans of the 45th president of the United States.

Turx concludes: “It is support that he has rightfully earned because of three years of hard work and genuine results.”

Here is what it sounds like when the chi coms squeal as the walls close around them and their games are nutered. -

If Germany were to take a decision that leads to Huawei’s exclusion from the German market, there will be consequences,” Ambassador Wu Ken said Saturday at a Handelsblatt event. “The Chinese government will not stand idly by.”

President Donald Trump’s administration has sought to enlist U.S. allies in squeezing out Huawei as a 5G supplier. A lawsuit against the Federal Communications Commission this month marked Huawei’s latest attempt to fight U.S. sanctions and curbs that threaten the world’s largest networking business.

While the German legislation doesn’t explicitly name Huawei, it’s tailored to the Chinese company and comes after months of debate about 5G security. Huawei has repeatedly rejected allegations of its equipment’s potential for espionage and sabotage.

The ambassador said Huawei has no legal obligation to provide data to the Chinese government, then reminded the audience that German manufacturers account for a quarter of the 28 million cars sold in China last year.

New Jersey; ‘Tlaib’s Confusion, and Ours’

“Let’s insist, for a moment, upon the Occam’s razor explanation for the New Jersey massacre, undertaken by two now-deceased African-American suspects, one of whom had alleged ties to the Black Hebrew Israelites and a history of anti-Semitic and anti-police activity online. Simplicity stipulated, the explanation should be clear enough: Two African-American assailants harbored some amalgam of anti-Semitism and anti-police fervor, which culminated in their slaying a police officer and several Jewish citizens. It’s possible that such an explanation is not true. It’s possible that the pair were suffering a heretofore unreported psychotic break. It’s possible that the two woke up on Tuesday and decided to kill four random people, three of whom, by stochastic accident, just so happened to be either Jewish or a police officer. It’s possible that the two were operating under some false conciousness foisted upon them by the clandestine forces of “white supremacy,” and that — if you really think about it — their actions were enabled by a broader “climate of hate” enabled by Donald Trump, the Republican party, Jeff Sessions, Brett Kavanaugh, and the 2017 tax reform.”

It’s probably the anti-Semitism and anti-police stuff, though.”

Adam the Schiff gets a rude reception!
https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-12-14/adam-schiff-armenian-town-hall
"As Schiff began speaking, a man and two women held up signs reading,"Don’t Impeach.” When they were asked to take down the signs, they refused.

Then, about a dozen people scattered throughout the auditorium began yelling, “Liar.”

When some in the audience asked them to refrain from yelling, scuffles broke out throughout the room. The audience members who were yelling at Schiff removed their jackets, revealing shirts supporting Trump.

After about 15 minutes, the scuffles settled down, and the event continued."

Think Schiffty got the message?

A DIRTY COP SPEAKS

“James Comey appeared for a 15-minute interview by Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday this morning. When it comes to the FISA warrants whose verification and alleged facts he swore to, Comey asserted, he doesn’t know anything. As Director of the FBI he wasn’t familiar with the details; as the director, he’s “not kept informed.”

And he never oversaw investigation of the Trump campaign or of President Trump — just four individuals associated with the Trump campaign (two of whom were no longer associated with the campaign at the time).

And the Steele Dossier — it may have had its problems, but he’s not giving up on it. It’s not bunk.

How dirty is this cop? Very dirty. He nevertheless seems quite confident that he faces no consequences for his misconduct, and who can say he is wrong?”

Quotable quote: “There were mistakes I consider more consequential than this during my tenure.”

What did Horowitz say? Something like a utter failure in the chain of command, top to bottom. What else did Horowitz say? Something like no one who touched the FISA warrant and spying on the Trump campaign (Trump) is ventilated. No one.

The Business of Climate Change

“Then there’s the psychology of herding, whereby CEOs are fearful of being hung out to dry if they don’t sign the latest statement pledging their company to save the world from climate breakdown. All this might remind readers of two groups in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged: the Moochers, comprising, in this example, the craven CEOs and their in-house CSR crowd; and the Looters, the environmental NGOs. Their ultimate victim is capitalism, the only economic system ever to have produced durable, transformative economic growth.”

The video attacks wealthy people in the U.K., Conservatives, and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, stating at the end: “The Conservatives have been in power for 10 years. We can’t survive another 5. On your side. For the many not the few. Vote Labour 12 December.”

The chi coms are starting to learn that they are not special in any way. There is a new sheriff in town. -

WASHINGTON — The American government secretly expelled two Chinese Embassy officials this fall after they drove on to a sensitive military base in Virginia, according to people with knowledge of the episode. The expulsions appear to be the first of Chinese diplomats suspected of espionage in more than 30 years.

American officials believe at least one of the Chinese officials was an intelligence officer operating under diplomatic cover, said six people with knowledge of the expulsions. The group, which included the officials’ wives, evaded military personnel pursuing them and stopped only after fire trucks blocked their path.

The episode in September, which neither Washington nor Beijing made public, has intensified concerns in the Trump administration that China is expanding its spying efforts in the United States as the two nations are increasingly locked in a geopolitical and economic rivalry. American intelligence officials say China poses a greater espionage threat than any other country.

In recent months, Chinese officials with diplomatic passports have become bolder about showing up unannounced at research or government facilities, American officials said, with the infiltration of the military base only the most remarkable instance.

The expulsions, apparently the first since the United States forced out two Chinese Embassy employees with diplomatic cover in 1987, show the American government is now taking a harder line against suspected espionage by China, officials said.

Recent episodes of suspected spying add to the broader tensions between the United States and China, the world’s two largest economies and biggest strategic rivals. That conflict is heightened by a trade war that President Trump started in July 2018 and that shows only tentative signs of abating.

On Oct. 16, weeks after the intrusion at the base, the State Department announced sharp restrictions on the activities of Chinese diplomats, requiring them to provide notice before meeting with local or state officials or visiting educational and research institutions.

At the time, a senior State Department official told reporters that the rule, which applied to all Chinese Missions in the United States and its territories, was a response to Chinese regulations imposed years ago requiring American diplomats to seek permission to travel outside their host cities or to visit certain institutions.

Schifflips to Liars rehab?

“We have come to know Schiff as something of a pathological liar. Nunes now seeks to conduct an intervention. In the letter captured in the tweet below, Nunes invites Schiff to undertake rehab. The first step is admitting he has a problem: “As part of your rehabilitation, it’s crucial that you admit you have a problem—you are hijacking the Intelligence Committee for political purposes while excusing and covering up intelligence agency abuses.” Schiff’s enablers will nevertheless insulate him from the consequences of his exposure. Indeed, they are his accomplices.

Quotable quote: “I understand taking action on this issue will be difficult for you, as it will be an implicit acknowledgment that you were wrong to deny these abuses and that you were complicit in the violation of an American’s civil liberties. I also understand that such an acknowledgment is made even more difficult by the fact that you’ve already been discredited by your years-long false claim that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to hack the 2016 presidential election.”

From a new book by Peter Bergen

" Donald Trump called for the population of Seoul to be moved during an Oval Office meeting when tensions between the US and North Korea were at their height, according to a new book about the president's relations with the US military.

In Trump and his Generals: The Cost of Chaos, the national security and counter-terrorism expert Peter Bergen also gives new details of Trump's demands that the families of US service members in South Korea be evacuated, which the North Korean regime would have interpreted as a clear move towards war."

And to think this man is our Commander and Chief.........

Paul, there is a big disconnect between the book quote, that Trump called for the evacuation of Seoul, and the Reddit citation that was clear... Trump called only for US families to come home from Seoul.

Why lie about it, Punch?

Bill Tozer

Little Rocket Man said he was going to wipe South Korea off the map. Trump called his bluff. Now, the FKU is all butt hurt that the December meeting between the two countries never materialized. Probably something to do with not keeping their end of the bargain or maybe impeachment.

The little Hermit Kingdom Rocketman is a high maintenance child, demanding all the attention. He is truly a self centered attention whore.

I remember when Trump came into office the first year and all the news in the fall was filled with nuclear war with North Korea. When would the Fat Fuk launch this attack on South Korea and Japan? We are on the brink of war!!!! Calmer heads said it would not be until after the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in Feb, 2018.

Well, after Rocketman got the attention he demanded, he cooled the rhetoric for awhile. Now he is back. LOOK at me, look at me. You better give me attention.
And Trump is a Putin-Kim Jong-un Dictator lubber! Trump is buddies with dictators because he want to be one!!! Trump loves dictators because he is one!!!!!!!!!

Pulling Americans out of South Korea? Oh heavens. Reminds me what Alexander the Great’s generals said when they invaded the land of Vlad the Impaler (Romanian Vlad III Drăculea). Seeing the impaled citizens lining the road entering the kingdom, the advancing army up and turned back, saying “If that is how he treats his own people, imagine what he will do to us.” A true madman.

Pulling US citizens out of South Korea? Unheard of! If that is how Kim Jong-un treats his own countrymen, imagine what he will do to the South Koreans.

Good article. Too many nuggets to quote. The Dem candidates, the IG Report, the i peach enz. progress all rolled into one. VDH

“Such antipathies have translated into the most far-left Democratic agendas in modern memory: Medicare for all, health care for illegal aliens, the Green New Deal, open borders, a wealth tax, a 70-90 percent top income tax rate, slavery reparations, free college tuition, and late-term abortions if not permissible infanticide. None of these issues warrants 51 percent public support; all are the wages of Trump hatred.

Nihilism is the theme: abolish ICE! Abolish student debt! Abolish the Electoral College! Abolish border security! Abolish the idea of Medicare for seniors! These are the highbrow versions of left-wing street nihilism from toppling statues to wiping out murals and the names of buildings and streets.

The antipathy to Trump has unhinged the candidates themselves to the point that so-called prior moderate candidates (such as Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Corey Booker, Kamala Harris) either sought to shed their prior records and careers or went full socialist as in the case of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth”

Huston we have a problem in the socialist dem clown car -

And while the field has been effectively cut down from more than 20 in the span of six months, a deepening sense of volatility is settling over the Democratic primary on the eve of the sixth and final debate of 2019. The remaining candidates, those in the debate and some trying to compete from outside, are grappling with unprecedented distraction from Washington, questions about their core principles and new signs that the party's energized factions are turning against each other.
Lest there be any doubt about the level of turbulence in the race, it's unclear whether Thursday's debate will happen at all given an unsettled labor union dispute that might require participants to cross a picket line. All seven candidates have said they would not do so.

The Democratic dilemma is perhaps best personified by Elizabeth Warren, whose progressive campaign surged through the late summer and fall but is suddenly struggling under the weight of nagging questions about her health care plan, her ability to compete against President Donald Trump and her very authenticity as a candidate.

Boyd Brown, a South Carolina-based Democratic strategist who recently decided to back Joe Biden only after his preferred candidate, Beto O'Rourke, was forced from the race, likened Warren's position to that of someone falling down a mountain grasping for anything to slow her descent.

This is what years of fake news have done, take note ya po' ol' fakenewsman. Lost 0's voters OUCH! -

Yep, as the national impeachment polling continues to move against the media and Democrats, at the swing state level things look even more dire for America’s Ukraine Hoaxsters.

And these are not just any swing voters in Michigan, this focus group was made up of voters who supported President Obama before moving over to Trump in 2016.

In other words, these are the voters the Democrat Party and fake media are counting on to come back home in 2020, to return to the Democrat fold and defeat Trump’s re-election chances. Well, they are not coming home. They are no longer Obama/Trump voters. They are now just Trump voters.

“Some swing voters here who voted for Barack Obama and then Donald Trump are firmly in Trump’s camp now — and they’re sick of impeachment,” Axios reports, adding, “These voters hate the fact that House Democrats are moving toward impeaching the president. They call it a distraction from the issues that would actually improve their lives.”

Those issues include “preserving Social Security, cracking down on illegal immigration, and keeping jobs in the U.S.”

“They have virtually zero trust in the media’s coverage of” Trump and “credit Trump with making health care more affordable.”

no president since World War II has lost reelection when unemployment was below 7.4 percent.

Sounds a lot like the socialist dem clown car -

But the main problem at this election wasn’t the manifesto; the main problem was Corbyn. A weak, self-regarding, pious man incapable of leadership.”

Mr Johnson claimed Mr Corbyn had failed to appeal to working-class communities that had consistently put trust in Labour.

He wrote: “The working classes looked at Corbyn and saw somebody who was unpatriotic to the extent that the country’s enemies were his friends. They hated his pacifism, his simplistic division of the world between evil oppressors and their victims, his disdain of aspiration.

“Most of all, they didn’t recognise themselves in Corbyn’s depiction of working-class people as having no individual identity, only a collective role as part of the downtrodden masses. They decided well before this election and irrespective of Brexit that they would never let him cross the threshold of 10 Downing Street.”

Well Schiff for brains is not moving the needle on impeachment in his direction but on another poll the needle is moving in the Presidents direction-

According to the poll, Joe Biden (D) is the only Democrat candidate who bests Trump in a general election matchup, 50 percent to 45 percent. However, that reflects a 5-point shift toward the president, who was down by ten points in November, 43 percent to Biden’s 53 percent.

The great thing about the Impeachment Trail is there will be no Adam Schiftylipps, no Jerry Nardo, no Queen Nan of Botox. Sure, they will be pontificating in front of the cameras and on CNN, but not on in the Senate Floor. All we will get is Chucky the Clown, Stolen Valor Bloomenthal, Dirty Cop Harris, Spartacluz, and that crazy lady from Hawaii.

Yep, that Adam Schiff is full of shit. Heck, they all are.

Now ain't that special?? Schummer demands a fair trial??

Bill Tozer

Wonder when the next impeachment will come. You just know there is another hair on fire scandal, another 24/7 carpet bombing, another impeachment or two coming down the pike.

THE NEVER-ENDING IMPEACHMENT

“In a filing to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, House General Counsel Douglas Letter argued that the House’s demands for grand jury materials connected to former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation were still urgent because such evidence might become relevant to the Senate’s expected impeachment trial next month,” Politico reported. “But Letter went further to note that even apart from the Senate trial, the House Judiciary Committee intends to continue its impeachment investigation arising from the Mueller probe on its own merit.”

So the Democrats may try to resurrect the Russia hoax in the House of Representatives, producing thereby their own version of history. The best defense against the Durham report, they likely believe, is a good offense.”

Daily Quotes and Affirmations.

Insight: “In this springtime of hope, some lights seem eternal; America’s is.” —Ronald Reagan

Braying jackass: “America can overcome four years of Donald Trump’s chaos and corruption, but if re-elected it will forever fundamentally change the character of who we are as a nation. We can’t let this happen. This election is about the soul of our nation and Donald Trump has poisoned our soul.” —Joe Biden

Belly laugh of the year: “There is one indisputable fact about the impeachment of President Donald Trump that should be clear to all Americans: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is making the Constitution great again.” —USA Today columnist Alexander Heffner

Monumental lack of self-awareness: “William Barr is unfit to be attorney general.” —former AG Eric Holder

Clueless? “I’m certainly willing to admit that the inspector general found serious abuses of FISA that I was unaware of. Had I known of them … I would have called out the FBI at the same time. But I think it’s only fair to judge what we knew at the time, not what would be revealed two years later, but yes, there were very serious abuses of the FISA process. They need to be corrected. We need to make sure they never happen again.” — House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff

Look in a mirror: “Hate, sinful … rhetoric is very dangerous and it’s becoming synonymous with the Republican Party.” —Ilhan Omar

Non sequitur: “If pitchers can make $324 million, we can pay every teacher in this country at least $60,000.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

World’s tiniest violin: “I feel like the forgotten man. I made more movies directed by women and about women than any filmmaker, and I’m talking about 30 years ago. I’m not talking about now when it’s vogue. I did it first! I pioneered it!” —Harvey Weinstein

And last… “Few Americans trust the media these days and coverage of impeachment is one of the reasons. It is also one of the reasons so few people are changing their minds. Most people recognize the media can no longer be trusted to play it straight.” —Erick Erickson

Here is one for the po' ol' pollhead -

Fox News released a poll on impeachment Sunday, the results of which differ from three recent major polls, all of which show more registered voters oppose impeachment than support it.

Those three polls from Quinnipiac University, Monmouth University, and NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist University all show registered voters oppose impeachment of President Trump and his removal from office by margins ranging from three percent to seven percent. But the Fox News Polls shows registered voters support impeachment and removal from office by four percent.

All Trump has to do to end the whole fiasco is to let everybody testify under oath and release all documents related to the matter. If they all testify supporting his claimed innocence that will put an end to it. Why do you think he refuses to allow that?

Well put, sir. It will all go away just like that. Linsey Graham said so. Now, why would we want this to all go away? Why interrupt a perfectly good party? Remember, Trump has no friends.

The Democrats can make their case to the Senate. It will be a public affair, all under the lights, very open. Then, those evil R’s are going to give it to Dems good and hard. Make it all end? Yep, the Unhinged and Deranged are just going to flip a switch and return to only being half-madmen? The lion with lay down with the lamb and we all will enjoy milk and honey from the Good land.

“Trump has been spied upon for well over three years.

It's time for it to stop.”

Never quit, never stop. But, what interests me more now that the IG Report is done, is who was spying on Trump in April, 2016? Crossfire Hurricane didn’t get started until July and the FISA court rejected the first warrant on Page in June for not enough evidence he was a Russian spy.

Yes, Trump has been spied upon for well over three years. And Flynn since 2014.

“The other thing, there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it.… It sounds horrible to me.”

It sounds horrible to me, too. What about it, Joe?

Paul Emery

Are you referring to the "Flynn" Bill who plead guilty to lying to the FBI? How can he nave any credibility in this matter?

Rebane's Ruminations 9:55 PM last night

Bill Tozer

Well, this is a no-brainer.

“The findings were released just days after the press received its latest black eye in the inspector general’s report looking at the FBI’s behavior during its investigation into Mr. Trump. The inspector general thoroughly punctured journalists who insisted that the Christopher Steele dossier had little to do with the FBI’s ability to obtain a secret warrant to spy on one of the candidate’s advisers.”

Kavanaugh Redux: Byron York

“Impeachment moves to Senate. Get ready for a scramble — and a January surprise”

If the Judiciary Committee receives the information, there is little doubt its leaders will work with Senate Democrats to create the impression that there is new evidence so compelling that it absolutely must be included in the impeachment trial. And if Republicans disagree, what are they trying to hide?

Indeed, Schumer and his colleagues have prepared the way to characterize any move to limit the trial's scope as an effort to hide wrongdoing from the American people. "To engage in a trial without the facts coming out is to engage in a cover-up," he said Monday

The bottom line is, Republicans should not believe for one minute that the campaign to remove the president will rely only on the case Democrats have built in the House. Schumer and other party leaders will scramble for new information to throw at the president, and at Republicans, until it is over. The GOP, and the White House, need to be ready.

Maybe he is trying to say that the case for impeachment is weak, no crimes have been charged, and if they keep digging they will find the smoking gun down there....somewhere. Maybe in some book! It’s all in a book. All the need is the evidence.

I found it! It’s all in Omarosa’s book. And have you read Michael Wolff’s new thriller?

Yep, they got Trump by the short curlies now. It’s just a matter of time and 5 more years of impeachment hearing.

Interesting that both Nunes and Schifflips looked at the exact same Intel. Nunes was mocked, ridiculed, and filleted for his wild conspiracy theories and Schifflipps was beloved and embraced by the press. The FBI conducted themselves in a completely honorable manner.
When the IG Report came out (looking only at the narrow issue of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court requests), come to find out that the IG Report closely followed Nunes’s “discredited” memo and eviscerated Schifflipps as a pathological liar. Me thinks the press has no credibility on the issue. Strike that. Me thinks the Democrats have the same credibility on the issue(s) as does the Leftinista press. Oh my.

They did not spy on Trump!! That’s a lie! Right wing disinformation!! Hmmm. What does the letter S mean in FISA, aka, the Foreign Intelligence SURVEILLANCE Act.

Good job Leftinista Industrial Media Complex. Kudos, you done good.
