    I think the whistle blower complaint was simply a way to let Schiff et al inform Biden’s team what Trump knew and was pursuing.

    The whistle blower didn’t have first hand knowledge to pass on but this was one way he/she could get it out there so they would know what level of damage they needed to counter.

      The Democrats have lots of reasons:

      A fundamental rule they live by is to accuse the other side of exactly what you’re guilty of. Some people here think the Steele Dossier was written to impeach Trump. Really? When Hillary was up 15 points in the polls? The Steele Dossier, accusing Trump of Russian Collusion, was written because of Uranium 1.

      All accusations against Biden can now be framed as bitter retaliation and dirty politics. This hoax was begun to help Biden, not to help Warren. It doesn’t help much because Biden is guilty as sin.

      All politicians are advised to bring up your weak points first, especially in a debate. Go on the offensive, don’t be caught on the defensive.

      This hoax will now stagger on, as long as the Media wants to keep it going. Nothing from Trump or the Ukrainians can stop it.

      Excellent point. However, I am a little uneasy about the Macguire testimony tomorrow. Seems like it’s just too quick… almost planned… almost like they already know what he is going to say. Hope this guy is on the up and up and not another swamp creature. Trump doesn’t have the best track record with his appointments.

        The swamp is NOT being drained and will not be drained until there are multiple indictments, trials, and convictions. Trump is a miserable FAILURE. He let Sessions drift along for TWO years before replacing him. It is increasingly obvious that William Barr is a deep state operative, a “cleaner” who arrives on the crime scene after the fact and cleans up the mess, destroys the evidence, and moves on.

      OK Schiff, let’s say…

      Trump’s son was paid $50,000 a month for a job he is not qualified for in a country he does not speak the language of. Those payments are routed through several foreign countries. The foreign country begins investigating this company as well as Trump’s son.

      Then Trump visits that country and tells them they have six hours to end that investigation or they loose a $1,000,000,000 loan guarantee. Then “son of a bitch” the investigation is ended within six hours.

      A few years later President Schiff is elected and he mentions to the leader of that foreign country that they need to look into both the closing of that investigation as well as the original investigation itself, so that we can be certain that Trump did not commit any crime as it appears he has by threatening to withhold a loan guarantee in order to protect his son.

      Then the Republicans scream for your impeachment.

      Do you understand now?

      Investigating crime is not a crime.

      For years you have claimed to have evidence of wrongdoing and you have never produced any evidence whatsoever. You have only lied and smeared. Now you’re running your mouth again. SHUT UP.

      BigTalkers, that reminds me… Admiral Rogers told Candidate Trump he was being spied on. So when PDJT asked comey if he was being spied on, and comey said “no”, PDJT knew comey was lying. And had to be fired.
      18 USC 1001 makes lying to, or withholding information from, the President or Congress, a crime. The DOJ has no problem using this kill-all statute to destroy General Flynn. George Papadopolous, Scooter Libby, even Martha Stewart, when they lack proof. But they can’t seem to apply it to FBI or dems who “lack candor” (lie…) and hide necessary information.

    PDJT’s “rope a dope” tactic . Even after being warned by PDJT to protect themselves from the temptation of em-biggening the fake whistle-blower scam, they couldn’t resist. Like moths to the flame.

    The lying media would never report on crowdstrike, or biden corruption, or Senate Dem involvement with the former corrupt Ukrianian regime, or biden money-laundering, of biden-kerry-bulger pay-to-play foreign governmnent “deals”, or use of AirForce 2 to get biden’s “china deals” in place……

    The fake news have now tired themselves out by punching at PDJT’s shadow. The fake news have exhausted their credibiity. Even the fake media’s viewers now know about biden corruption. And the dem congresscritters have to worry about the public slowly becoming more aware of dem-fake news crazyness, as they face being tagged by their district voters for “impeachment” unpopularity which will only get worse for them.

    Now, in addition to biden-kerry-bulger, its hillary-DNC-crowdstrike revisited, and dem senator foreign interference. And likely more. The “impeachment investigations” will also be full of previously-hidden news the dems and the fake media have so far successfully kept out of public awareness. More like the Lewandowski disaster-for-nadler.

    Will the fake news ever learn not to falsely immediately jump to report the next dem-generated crazy scheme? Not likely….

    Toss in an honest IG Horowitz FISA report, some investigations of how biden, the clintons, congresscritters like feinstein, reid, cummings, pelosi…..gain wealth on government salaries, and it will be a very entertaining election season.

    A comprehensive treaty agreement that allows cooperation between both the United States and Ukraine in the investigation and prosecution of crimes.

    It appears President Trump was following the law to the letter when it comes to unearthing the long-standing corruption that has swirled in Ukraine and allegedly involves powerful Democrats like Joe Biden and others.

    At a strategic time in the near future, the President should have a full and thorough ‘adress to the nation.’

    With charts, timelines, transcripts etc. Foolproofed for accuracy and indisputable factually.

    He IS the President. That implies special powers and privileges. Using the so called ‘bully pulpit’ to directly speak to the nation during a time of crisis is a legitimate procedure. And this ongoing coup IS a national and existential crisis. Civil war via lawless and cynical abuse of the legislative system for pure political purposes.

    With the use of tweets and social media he does express real time opinion and facts. But those formats are limiting and do not influence those who do not seek them out unspun.

    The gravitas of an ‘adress to the nation’ would be more effective. Of course the MSM would go insane and do everything to deny the opportunity, but once the word was out it would be seen as a form of censorship to refuse to carry it.

    Remember some of the addresses by past Presidents kept the nation focussed with rapt attention? The ongoing efforts to overturn 2016 may not be as obvious a crisis as a hot war or attack, or a natural disaster, but in some ways it is more profoundly critical to the very foundation of the country.

    The IG report, Barr and Durham’s work and whatever else is revealed will be important components of a devastating counter narrative. Assuming they at least indicate some forms of criminal behavior. Even if watered down and neutered. That would take away any claim to moral superiority. And provide ammunition verifying the facticity of unethical and/or criminal motivation behind the witch hunt.

    The President is a master at messaging and communication. His bully pulpit needs to be expanded and used strategically.

      No, no they’re not. Would they like to? Absolutely. Did they set up the rules of congress so that they could do it without the Republicans causing them parliamentarian troubles? Definitely. Will they actually vote to impeach? Not a chance.

      Pelosi is, above all things, a politician and as such loves her power. She’s seen the polls. They’ve likely done they’re own. They don’t know all of what’s going to be in the IG FISA report, but they know it won’t be good for them. When that is taken into consideration, the notion of impeaching a guy that an A) an Obama appointed IG said was spied on and B) that the public has no desire to impeach, there is absolutely no chance that Pelosi will actually pull the trigger on impeachment.

      She’s been in congress for decades. She knows how impeachment gets done. That’s why she came out with the bogus announcement: she had to do something to appease her base without actually doing anything. She knows that she’s stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea. On the one side is her rabid base that she and others whipped into a frenzy over impeachment and now are demanding they actually do it when they never intended to. On the other side is the American voting public that will utterly destroy the Democrat party in 2020 if she tries impeachment. She’s made the correct political calculation that the Dems are better off upsetting their base than the majority of voters. After all, who will their base turn to come election day? At worst some will stay home.

      I’d bet money that she’s banking on the idea of maybe losing a few seats, but holding the Dem majority in the House. Then all she has to do is deal with 2 years of deal making before 2022 rolls around and she and the Dems can make a serious run at taking back the Senate in preparation for 2024.

      You may want to define what you mean by “all this” being investigated.

      In the House the Dems get to define the scope of their investigation. I suspect the scope will START with the phone call and END with the handling of the so-called whistleblower complaint. Everything before that the Dems will deem immaterial and will rule everything else out of order.

    I suspect Trump no longer believes Barr is going to get to the bottom of the spygate fiasco. That could be one reason why he is unleashing Giuliani to do some deep digging.

      That fits with the statement that Barr has not yet contacted anyone in Ukraine. Why the stall? Glad to see PDJT himself declassified the transcript. Partisan Whistleblower info next.

      PDJT Message to AG Barr: “I can declassify myself. Now that the dems claim an impeachment proceeding, I can defend myself. Have a nice day.”

      • AG Barr may not have contacted anyone in the Ukraine yet, but supposedly Attorney Durham has. However, both you and Wm. above may be right that PDJT is signalling to AG Barr to get his act in gear.

    Warren, Harris or somebody would have brought up this Ukraine matter on Biden, directly, in the debates. Remember when Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown brought up the Clinton’s cattle futures and Whitewater in the 1992 Democrat Presidential Primary Debate? Slick Willy was ready for him, and immediately attacked back and scolded Brown for attacking his wife or something. The miserable slimeball hid behind his wife, who was also corrupt but that was beside the point. Of course, the media ate it up, as Slick Willy was a perfect fit for The Swamp and had corporate backing, so Brown was painted as a bully attacking an innocent frail housewife or something equally ridiculous. Biden has no such fallback position, and he has dementia. It’d be over.

    Warren would have torched ol’ Sleepy Joe one night on stage, and he would have fallen into a demented brain freeze and his handlers knew it. So they cooked up this scheme to blame Trump on Ukraine to save ol’ Joe, knowing Warren could be accused of siding with Trump if she agreed with him. Not a bad strategy, really, except Fauxcohontas is such a lying chameleon she’ll agree with Trump anyway… even if she doesn’t.

    This is actually a pretty good popcorn moment. I’m rather enjoying all this, especially after reading that transcript. This thing has now become another weapon in Trump’s armory. It’s beautiful. Forget impeachment, it’s a nothingburger.

    I love that Trump just releases documents immediately, too. He’s just that honest. For over 2 years, Mueller was just praying that Trump would fight him on documents or witness testimony so he could inflame Muh Russia with subpoenas and court fights, but no, Trump gave up everything and everybody, without even a single subpoena. It still sort of amazes me that nothing bad came out of all those docs, the guy has to be clean as a whistle. Hell, I couldn’t survive such scrutiny, that I can tell you.

    Looking like the usual suspects were using the usual techniques to spy on the president. Having been educated on buzzwords and triggers that be used to leverage a moose and squirrel redux, the word “favor” is chosen as the launchpad.

    The usual suspects activate another useful beach friend, this one in a position to narratively be called a “whistleblower” with enough lockstep media to repeat the term long enough that it sticks despite the cogent fact that the info was uncovered but figures to have been fed to the beach whistleblower by the usual suspects. Schiff is activated on his part, and off to the races they go.

    A couple of weeks ago, when this story first surfaced, I suggested that it all might be nothing more than a “Mole Hunt” to out a leaker. I still believe that to be the case. The only way for the Dems to continue on this track is to have the “whistleblower” testify & as soon as that happens….the person will be outed by a leak….BET on that….Not to mention that that this person has already “Lawyered Up” & has been in contact with Schift’s committee….

    If I had to make a “guess” as to who the “whistleblower is, my money would be on Kelly Ann Conway’s husband……This person is going to be outed for sure & pretty soon IMHO.

    This tact by the Dems is doomed to failure from the start since POTUS has taken control, of the narrative & has Rudy G. going on MSM Networks acting like “The Mad Hatter”…..Funny but true yet Rudy HAS been able to get the pertinent facts out to the opposition listeners/viewers….

    Never underestimate POTUS’s finely tuned ability to produce & sustain a reality gig that gets the message out with pinpoint accuracy & just demolishes the Dem objective. They are now playing catchup & looking quite foolish to their base not to mention the rest of the Country…..POTUS is going to force them into an “Impeachment” vote which will seal their fate & absolutely solidify a Trump victory in 2020……

    These poor fools actually can do 2 things at the same time….Choke on their gum & trip on their own 2 feet….LOL

    A few thoughts on this.
    First, the claim that triggered the Democrat-media frenzy was that President Trump made some kind of quid pro quo “promise” to Zelenskyy in exchange for Ukrainian meddling in the 2020 election. It was the 2016 “Russian collusion” narrative all over again.

    NONE of that occurred in the call.

    What did occur was President Trump brought up CROWDSTRIKE. This is what has the Deep State in a panic. President Trump KNOWS about Ukraine involvement with the DNC in the “cozybear” false flag operation.

    This happening now throws Biden a lifeline. His campaign is on life support.
    But this takes the focus from Warren and puts it back on Biden. And to Democrats, it makes them think Trump must fear Biden. Democrats are also pig-ignorant so rather than this hurting Biden, it will make him a martyr in their eyes. I believe we will see a sudden renewed surge in support for Biden that may very well help him ride out Warren Week.

      Yes, Crowdstrike is a “contractor” with illicit access to government data. I want these guys illuminated and put in front of a grand jury. I’d like to see Miss Lindsay get these clowns in front of his committee, but fat chance of that, he’s too focused on getting another special prosecutor appointed to go after Trump, over “Ukraine”. .

    The most interesting comment from the call. PDJT discussing the former US Ambassador to Ukraine (that woman was bad news) with Zelinski:

    “Well she is going to go through some things.”

    I believe the legal process is in play behind the scenes and look forward to the coming days!!!

    The Trolll Army was very much in evidence this morning. Within two minutes of the transcript’s posting on the White House Twitter page, there were about 20 comments attacking it, each from a different person, but all using the exact same argument and most using the exact same wording and phrases. Transparent attempt to create the appearance of a public response that actually isn’t there.

    Way to set that hook, Mr. President.

    And kudos to you sir, for letting President Zelensky reel in the catch and land that dangerously thrashing deep-water denizen on the Ukranians’ deck. They have their gaffs sharpened and ready, and appear to be well prepared. Their success will make the waters cleaner and safer for us all.

    I’m eager to see this leviathan brought to the surface and its full weight and measure finally taken.
    I hope the Ukrainians stuff and mount it.

    Thank you for all you do out there on your fabulous ship of state, the Sudden and Relentless Reform.

      My takeaway…POTUS should learn from this and never speak on the telephone with any foreign
      Leader that includes anyfhing but the mosg superficial content. Schumer warned him, the whistleblower confirmed. Discuss only the weather. If something important needs to be discussed that isnt for general consumption, then have a face to face meeting. We cannot trust the spies the Obamunists left behind. This is a nothing burger but the minefield is real

  46. I must say it is really quite impressive how the Democrats, Deep State, and MSM have managed to continue to forge ahead managing to ignore all of the horrible facts that are known about spygate and keep losing and losing and losing, yet they never give up. Never. We sit here so aggravated that even when everything is so plain as day, they refuse to acknowledge it. Every single aspect they just move on like the crazy Baghdad Bob. Nothing to see here, as bombs are literally exploding behind them as they valiantly spout off about how Trump is now trapped and have him right where they want him. It is impressive to say the least. Any their minions follow.

    They know that this election will not be about the left or the right. It’s going to be, like most elections, about the independents. The people who can swing both ways. The people who aren’t on Twitter or on blogs like this one. The ones that are only tuned into a small fraction of what’s going on in the world and only listen to snippets from the news. As long as they have a narrative to run, they will run it and figure they can do their best to make it look as though they have done no wrong and Trump is a crazy, stupid, tyrannical, evil, racist, blah blah blah….

    They literally have Joe Biden on video bragging about extorting the Ukraine to fire a prosecutor to back off of his son or he would withhold funds, but point the finger at Trump over a simple call mentioning that it should be looked into (far within his rights.) They could literally have emails released of Hillary SELLING favors to foreign leaders in exchange for large ticket speaking engagements for her and her husband and they wouldn’t blink an eye. Yet they spent 3 years on a fake ridiculous cartoon parody dossier to frame our President and still drone on and on about how it proved collusion and obstruction, even though it didn’t.

    They’ve got cajones though and we could all learn a lot from them. Trump did. He too is like the Energizer Bunny. He just keeps going and going and going and going. He never gives up. I wish Republicans would do the same. We have a handful like Jim Jordan and Mark Geotz, etc…but most of them are just wishy washy at best and do nothing. It’s frustrating. But Trump is doing great. At the end of the day, Trump is winning and will keep on winning. He’s Trump.
