President Trump said he’s happy with the way the impeachment trial is going thus far because his administration has not released “materials” that would hurt his cause.
“When we released that conversation all hell broke out with the Democrats,” Trump said. “Because they said, ‘Wait a minute, this is much different than [what Adam Schiff] told us.’ ”
The president continued, “So, we’re doing very well. I got to watch [the impeachment trial] enough. I thought our team did a very good job. But honestly, we have all the material. They don’t have the material.”
It almost seems the corporate press is hoping for violence. Afterall, the Charlottesville tragedy was a major news event in 2017. Now these right-wingers decided to hold a hate rally on MLKjr’s birthday. This day should be about the life of a great man of peace, freedom, and democracy.
Nancy Pelosi refused to formally submit impeachment documents to the Senate as a way of delaying the vote. Because in that way Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, the two progressives running for the presidency, would be forced to be Washington rather than in Iowa to campaign.
The Iowa caucus is on February 3rd. That’s about 2 weeks away. That means Sanders and Warren will be forced to be in Washington to vote in the Senate Impeachment trial. They will spend a significant amount of time not campaigning in Iowa. The darling of the Democratic establishment, Joe Biden, does not have that problem. He is no longer a U.S. Senator.
It will be the second time that the Democratic Party establishment used dirty tricks to prevent Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination:
It’s the fourth quarter. The game is close. And you are benched.
That could sum up the frustrations of four senators — two of them front-runners for the Democratic presidential nomination — who will be duty bound to leave the campaign trail next week to sit in judgment of President Trump.
The Senate impeachment trial is expected to begin as early as Jan. 24, less than two weeks before the all-important Iowa caucuses.
With members of the Senate serving as official jurors who will determine Mr. Trump’s guilt or innocence, three participants in Tuesday’s debate, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, must head back to Washington in the midst of the campaign.
How did this guy become a state legislator? We need to worry. How many more are like him? And how many more are coming along in this environment? Bottomline: The GOP is rapidly becoming a threat to our constitutional republic:
Last year, the chair of the Republican caucus in Washington’s state legislature acknowledged that he had written a manifesto on the “Biblical Basis for War.” In that document, the lawmaker argued that – as far as Jesus Christ was concerned – American Christians have the right to “kill all males” who support abortion, same-sex marriage or communism (so long as they first give such infidels the opportunity to renounce their heresies).
The manifesto’s revelation cost its author, Matt Shea, his chairmanship. But Shea insisted that his writings were merely “a summary of church sermons on Old Testament war that could help place current events in historical context.” And so, the Washington GOP did not call for Shea to resign or expel him from its House caucus.
This past spring, the Guardian obtained text messages in which Shea discussed targetting anti-fascist activists for surveillance, harassment, and violence. One of Shea’s interlocutors, online radio personality Jack Robertson, offered this prescription for the treatment of a female antifa protester: “Fist full of hair, and face slam, to a Jersey barrier. Treat em like communist revolutionaries. Then shave her bald with a K-Bar USMC field knife.”
This might be a rhetorical question. But I think we all know why? Only Muslims commit terrorism. If you are white and attack people of color that’s just a hate crime.
Sadly this story will be forgotten within a few days. And the terror attacks will continue. And the worthless politicians running in Iowa (ironically) haved remained about this incident. They should be denouncing racist terrorism that has exploded under Donald Trump.
The GOP is a domestic terrorist organization. And they should be banned. They are also work behalf of a foreign government:
State Rep. Matt Shea planned and participated in domestic terrorism against the United States before and during the armed takeover at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, an investigation commissioned by the Washington state House found.
The 108-page report found that beginning in November 2015, Shea, working with militia leader Ammon Bundy, helped “in the planning and preparation” of the Malheur takeover, a six-week conflict in which dozens of armed protesters occupied the refuge in rural Eastern Oregon. The standoff ended after one protester was shot and killed and dozens were arrested.“
Representative Shea, as a leader in the Patriot Movement, planned, engaged in and promoted a total of three armed conflicts of political violence against the United States Government in three states outside the state of Washington over a three-year period,” according to the report released Thursday. “In one conflict Representative Shea led covert strategic pre-planning in advance of the conflict.”
He’ll have to get some new Russian operatives to work with. I’m sure Putin will be glad to oblige:
President Donald Trump’s private lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, needed a translation app on his phone for Russian documents, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
He was without Soviet-born associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, on a recent trip to Ukraine. The two were arrested in October on charges of campaign finance violations. (Earlier this week, federal prosecutors asked a judge to revoke bail for Parnas, arguing he lied about his finances and posed a flight risk.)
This doesn’t make sense other than they are doing Putin’s bidding. Russia is friendly with Maduro. That is why the Trump administration has done nothing to topple the regime:
Erik Prince, the controversial private security executive and prominent supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump, made a secret visit to Venezuela last month and met Vice President Delcy Rodriguez, one of socialist leader Nicolas Maduro’s closest and most outspoken allies, according to five sources familiar with the matter.
