Invalidating the election of Donald Trump as President has been the goal for democrats since November 2016. This coming impeachment distraction will create another round of time-consuming investigations that should lead nowhere, but will succeed as a distraction and drag down the stock market and the economy.
There are many media talking heads who “have grave concerns” about the information revealed last week by the US intelligence “whistle-blower” allegedly connecting President Trump to a political conspiracy. Their concerns SHOULD lie elsewhere.
It’s my understanding that since the 1970’s transcripts of Presidential calls are not actually recorded verbatim. They are based on notes which can have varying levels of detail and accuracy. Obviously, several factors can affect the accuracy of the transcript including the quality of telephone connections, accents, and the accuracy/use of interpreters, etc. However, we all have the same information.
There is no legitimate witness or ‘whistle-blower’ involved. He/she is an eavesdropper, more of a whistle-sucking hearsay artist who is represented/shielded by former Shumer, Clinton, and Obama hacks who will never have to answer to anyone or be exposed to any inquisition.
It should be noted that sometime between May 2018 and August 2019, the intelligence community secretly eliminated a requirement that whistleblowers provide direct, first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings. The new complaint document no longer requires potential whistleblowers who wish to have their concerns expedited to Congress to have that degree of knowledge.
So, before last week whistle-blowers were only credible if a first-hand witness or at least in possession of a proverbial smoking gun.
Now a political agenda and the right connections will suffice. Facts are not needed. Simply develop a good story line, grab a few unnamed sources, and presume guilt because you don’t like the office holder.
AND this anonymous person accusing President Trump of improperly pressuring the Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is represented by two lawyers who run a group that offers financial help to fired whistle blowers.
“Whistleblower Aid” was launched in September 2017 just eight months after Trump’s inauguration. The promotional blitz involved mobile billboards being driven around the headquarters of the CIA and National Security Agency, and close to the White House, the Capital complex, and the Pentagon.
Whistleblower Aid’s client support includes free legal representation, media coaching, and medical bills, counseling, AND rent or mortgage assistance! Critics say it violates attorney ethics. It sounds more like blatant bribery with the protection of anonymity.
Anyone who read the transcript of the President’s July telephone conversation with the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, should know the favor Trump referenced pertained to Crowdstrike, the group that investigated the hack into the Democratic National Committee e-mails during the 2016 election and had nothing to do with accusations against Joe and Hunter Biden. It was absolutely clear in the transcript that was what the two Presidents were talking about. Trump didn’t demand the scalp of Biden or his son, Hunter Biden and didn’t offer a carrot - quid pro quo as the media is so fond of saying. The news reports indicating so are a flat out lie. Yet, the national media gleefully associates the Biden issue for political expedience without any investigative effort whatsoever.
Once again, Trump’s words were less than perfect, but they were straight-forward. In addition, the transcript had Trump requesting that “the Attorney General” be included in all future conversations, so he obviously was not attempting to hide anything.
Zelensky was also the first to bring up the name of Rudy Giuliani, not Trump. Yet, the media chose to redact the transcript in choice areas for emphasis.
Back to Biden for a moment...
While speaking to a group of foreign policy experts on January 23, 2018, Joe Biden recalled that during his time as vice-president in March of 2016 he threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid if then-Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko, did not fire the prosecutor who was investigating the Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma, that hired his son, Hunter Biden.
Biden told those gathered, “I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours.’ I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a b—-, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
The junior Biden had no natural gas experience, no Ukrainian civic or economic experience, and had been kicked out of the U.S. military for cocaine use. Yet, he had a position with that Ukrainian company salaried at $50,000/month.
Meanwhile, neither Hunter nor his business records or business associates have been subpoenaed. No network has asked him the first question about any involvement. What does Hunter Biden’s voice even sound like?
Joe Biden has not been subpoenaed either. Nobody is asking him about that billion-dollar blackmail. No, all the talk last week was leading up to Biden’s guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
It’s clear that the national media has no journalistic standards whatsoever. At this point it’s all partisanship.
Where is the Republican-led senate in all this? It is obvious that they don’t want media attacks refocused on them instead of Trump. We already know that Mitt Romney and Ben Saas are among the RINO dirt bags. The rest are apparently gutless cowards as well.
Trump gave a very impressive pro-American speech at the UN last week talking about the need for nations to love their own country and take care of their own people. However, few in America heard it because the media was too focused on what Nancy Pelosi thought about Trump’s legal, lawful conversation with Zelensky.
So many are concerned with Trump’s exaderations, his lack of international decorum, his global warming denials, his frank talk, and his history of womanizing. They think he embarrasses the US. I can agree, sometimes he does. Let’s also not forget how many international gaffes took place under the previous administration.
More importantly, Trump is not kissing anybody’s backside. We’ve had plenty of that in the last 30 years and have become an international pushover, a schmuck sponge that virtually any country can squeeze to have some cash flow out.
Trump is finally trying to plug that dike.
So you want to talk about an embarrassment?
Pelosi saw the purely partisan Impeachment funnel that was forming and she chose to lead rather than be dragged. That undermined the institution of the Presidency, and besmirched America on the global stage.
It’s a very dangerous place that Pelosi and the democrats are taking this and any future Presidents.
Is it any wonder that people find politics so reprehensible in our day and so many in congress hover at a 10-15% approval rating?
