      Nancy gave a free peak of her 5 pm speech at the Atlantic Festival.
      She gave her speech then— down to the Constitution Day. She wasn’t teary-eyed quoting Thomas Paine. She was just giving another performance, today.


      • … and what, then, will happen when you have set this precedent? One political party secures both the House and the Senate, but an opposing party wins the Presidency. No problem. On Inauguration Day(!), articles of impeachment against both the President and the Vice-President are introduced in the House, summarily passed there, and passed in the Senate that afternoon. The duly elected officers served only one day, max.

        Third in line is the Speaker of the House, chosen by the ruling Party, which has therefore appointed a President of their own choosing. For the next two full years, it’s all rubber-stamp: a bill is introduced in the House by “the Party” and passed there, then moved to the Senate by “the Party” and also passed there, before being sent to the White House by “the Party” and signed into law there. Nothing can stop anything that “the Party pleases” from becoming Law.

        And this has occurred because the precedent has now been set that the Congress can convict a person of “high crimes and misdemeanors” – at least sufficiently to remove him or her from office and to prevent him or her from ever running for anything again – notwithstanding, and not requiring any actual decision of the law. “Impeachment is now a purely political act. You are ‘guilty’ of anything that we decide you are guilty of, simply because we said so. We will shamelessly use this to neutralize the Office of the President.

      Well, there’s your problem right there, Ms. Judge. DOJ/FBI has quite the reputation when it comes to “good faith”.

    Trump Battle Prep: Things We Know
    By Christopher Chantrill – September 24, 2019

    In some ways, President Trump has been going quiet in recent weeks. I wonder if that is because his people are ranging the heavy artillery wheel-to-wheel a couple of miles behind the front lines before the Big Push starts for next year’s presidential election. Think about what we know.

    This is turning into a weird day. Good news, bad news, good speech and meetings by the President, bad decisions by the Speaker of the House, good news for Flynn’s former partner, bad news for Roger Stone’s motions.

    Is it time to start the new “Trump’s finished now because . . . ” list?

    • This really does seem like a mini-rerun of the Russian collusion scenario.

      Contrary to what many may think, these hysterics by the democrats are just as much (if not more) defensive actions by them as they are offensive. They are doing this – I think – to forestall and blunt the inevitable blows when the FISA facts are released, McCabe gets indicted and more & more comes out on Biden..etc.

      They’re keeping their base ginned up with this crap so they can claim political retribution when we get into full campaign season. Something is telling them President Trump is about to go on full offense (I think they’re right) and they are stockpiling ammo, but in the end, all the really have is Bull Shit.

    Impeachable offense?

    Criteria: “It’s not right”

    Pelosi says there are number of “candidates” for impeachable offenses. “This one is the most understable by the public,” she says of Trump pushing Ukraine to investigate Biden. She says there doesn’t need to be a quid pro quo, saying pushing Ukraine to investigate “is not right”


  19. bessie2003 says:

    Okay; phew. After my initial reaction to the Pelosi announcement where the doom and gloom thoughts show up, did a little internet surfing, read different friends comments and thoughts, mostly yeah for Pelosi because orange man bad and a few, wait til’ Biden finds out Ukraine is reopening the investigation into his son,

    came that old thought, “He’s got this, VSG-Trump’s got this, this is the man that is the master of own the downside”

    Have absolutely no idea how he’s going to do it, but one thing for sure, it’s time to stock up on more popcorn. A Lot More Popcorn. We’re about to enter the Popcorn vs Corn-Pops world!

    Rudy Giuliani
    Dems have no basis for impeachment. They should be investigated for obstructing justice. Their whistleblower may in fact turn out to have no direct evidence. The story is so far off it sounds like another Dem-Media frame-up. Only crimes are Biden-Kerry pay for play. Thank you.
    Rudy Giuliani
    The more the whistleblower evaporates, the more Dems want to impeach. Pelosi couldn’t coherently explain it. This is a political big plus for taking back House, but bad for country. In a short while you will find out the corruption Dems and their media are covering up. China!
    Rudy Giuliani
    Joe Biden is making another false exculpatory statement. He said he was cleared. Maybe in his own mind or by the corrupt media. He has never been cleared or even investigated because the Clintons, Bidens et al believe they are all above the Law.


  21. linda4298 says:

    Kevin McCarthy
    Here are the facts:
    1. Speaker Pelosi can’t decide on impeachment unilaterally. It requires a full vote of the House of Representatives.
    2. The House has voted three times on articles of impeachment. Each vote failed.
    3. For Dems, this is all about politics. Not about facts.


  22. linda4298 says:

    Kevin McCarthy Retweeted
    Rep. Doug Collins
    Speaker Pelosi’s decree changes absolutely nothing. As I have been telling Chairman Nadler for weeks, merely claiming the House is conducting an impeachment inquiry doesn’t make it so. Until the full House votes to authorize an inquiry, nobody is conducting a formal inquiry.

    I asked House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern today if there is a plan to have the House vote to open a formal impeachment inquiry, to which he responded: “Not that I know of.”

  28. New trial for Flynn Intel partners delays $250 billion Uranium Two deal with Saudi Arabia.

    A new trial for Flynn Intel partners delays the:

    $250 billion Uranium Two deal with Saudi Arabia negotiated by Flynn Intel Group and IP3

    Mike Flynn’s sentencing for lying to the FBI dated Dec. 18th

    A new trial also rekindles the possibility of new charges being filed against Mike Flynn Sr. and his son, Mike Jr.

    Will they be charged as co-conspirators in a plot to cover up their roles as spies for the government of Turkey?

    Two guilty verdicts against Flynn partner, Bijan Kian, were reversed today by Judge Anthony Trenga, resulting in a new trial.

    No trial date has been set.

    Trenga is a federal judge in the Eastern District of Virginia in Alexandria.

    Kian, also known as Rafiekian, was accused of being a spy for the government of Turkey.

    Rafiekian was to be sentenced Oct. 18th.

    He was facing up to 15 years in prison.

    Who else will be charged?

    Who else will testify?


    • boogywstew says:

      “The evidence was insufficient as a matter of law to sustain either of Rafiekian’s convictions, and the Motion for Acquittal is therefore GRANTED. Should the Court’s judgement of acquittal be later vacated/reversed … the motion for New Trial is conditionally granted.” This means there is NO new trial unless today’s acquittal is reversed in the future which looks highly unlikely after reading the judge’s opinion. Most of your comment is based on error.

    Also, no smoking gun in transcript.

    Ed Henry on Hannity just reported that WH sources
    told him that they will also be releasing from the
    IG reports that the whistleblower has a bias for POTUS
    in favor of a 2020 candidate. Also siad that this WH source
    said there is no smoking gun in the transcript but
    there is some language or words that might raise a few

    John Batchelor traveling with and speaking with Christopher Nixon Cox tonight, grandson of Pres Richard Nixon.
    Nixon Cox – Unlike his grandfather Pres Richard Nixon, Pres Trump has a great economy and Pres Trump has some Media behind him this time, plus no fuel crisis. Pres Richard Nixon had all these problems, plus more.
    But the major point – For Pres Trump, “There’s no ‘there’ there.”

    Plus, per Liz Peek tonight, the PMI is up a little bit today, plus the stock market had already started recovery after Pelosi’s announcement.
