      Schiffy Schiff seems to be up to his very prominent eyeballs in the corruption oozing from that country. Why does it seem like Ukraine is a very special place for so many in our halls of Congress to go visiting to on a regular basis? Especially the Dems. This whole Ukrainian issue has some very suspicious odors rising from it. .

    Some of the things President Trump has taught the American people……

    1) A Global Economy or NWO is not good for American businesses and Americans

    2) Our old trade deals did not benefit American businesses and Americans

    3) Sending military might and our young men & women everywhere is not always the best solution.

    4) Sanctions, when done properly can be very effective

    5) Tariffs are good tool to use to level the playing field

    6) Becoming energy independent is good for America

    7) Government regulation inhibits economic growth

    8) Focus on Main Street and not Wall Street

    9) Illegal immigration and zero border control undermines our society

    10) The democracy party is really the party of socialism.

    Amazing the truth that this President has shown the American people in only 3 years!

        That was likely your automatic spell checker. I use a bunch of different devices and they all misbehave in different ways. This phone gives recommendations on what it thinks I am typing. Sometimes a change is recommended in blue and a checkmark also appears. The checkmark accepts what I have typed. Hitting a space changes what I typed to the blue word. I would rather have a space accept what I typed and hit the blue word to make the change. But, that might be painful with all my misspellings.

    In light of current events here is a revisit of the NEOCON James Mattis.

    Trump said he “essentially” fired Mattis, who announced his resignation last January and alluded to disagreements with Trump over the treatment of U.S. allies and adversaries.

    “What’s he done for me?” Trump said. “How had he done in Afghanistan? Not too good.”

    When asked separately about U.S. policy in Afghanistan, Trump said that the U.S. has been talking to the Taliban and noted regional players like India, Pakistan and Russia who also have a stake in Afghan peace talks.

    Mattis disagreeded with Trump’s call for an abrupt departure from Syria, which Mattis believed would allow the Islamic State terrorist group to grow (NEOCON excuse).

    Mattis announced his resignation as secretary of defense on Dec. 20 but wanted to stay until February to ensure a smooth transition. Instead, Trump forced him out early.

    “Moderate Dog” Mattis showed his deep state bonifides by repeatedly attacking Vladimir Putin, and perpetuating the “election hacking” myth. Mattis called Putin a “slow learner,” and claimed that the Russian president had again meddled in the midterm elections. He’s asserting this with no evidence, and using it to justify a hostile stance against the world’s second most powerful military. Like the evidence for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, we’re just supposed to trust that the warmongers have our best interests at heart.

    Mattis sounded eerily similar to the Bushes in his condemnations of Russia. He slammed Putin for his “continued efforts to try to subvert democratic processes.”

    Mattis talked flippantly about deposing regimes all across the world. Under the guise of “spreading democracy,” he advocated for overthrowing leaders in Iran, Syria, and Venezuela, and increasing the American military presence anywhere that “democracy” is threatened.

    This is stuff straight out of the Bush administrations. It’s the same stuff that failed miserably in Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s the same stuff that has unleashed massive destruction all around the world, breeding hate of America and facilitating mass migration into it.

    According to Mattis, the United States should run open-ended military operations in nearly every country in the world in order to “protect our values.” What about protecting our borders? Not only does Mattis not think America should do that, he suggested that it would be illegal for the military to do so.

    He reiterated the lie that the military cannot help stop the caravan due to a prohibition on the military acting as law enforcement on US soil. Defending the country from invading hordes is not a law enforcement issue. It is a national security issue. It is an embarrassment to live in a country where the secretary of defense says it is illegal for the military to stop an invasion. Mattis is the perfect deep state agent.

    During the campaign, Trump showed good instincts on foreign policy. He promised to reduce needless American involvement in the Middle East and elsewhere. He claimed his “America First” policy would focus on objective interests and not nebulous concepts like freedom and spreading democracy. He even attacked the Bush family for its Middle East war failures, and claimed he wouldn’t repeat those mistakes.

    • It sounds like Mattis believes in (1). cultural relativism and (2) is a democracy fetishist. That’s a pretty terrible combination for an American general to embody (American generals ought to be a true blue patriotic believers in American greatness and exceptionalism, while seeing their mission as protecting the REPUBLIC and the Constitution).

      Also, the thing about democracy fetishists is that some are genuine believers, while others pretend to be democracy fetishists as a vehicle for promoting corrupt domestic and/or globalist schemes.

    Today in Ukraine: Corruption, Riots & Russia at the Gates
    December 15, 2017

    https://www.psaonline.org/2017/12/15/ukraine_today/

    -snip-

    On December 15th, United States Institute of Peace Executive Vice President, Ambassador Bill Taylor and Editor of the Atlantic Council Blog, Ukraine Alert, Melinda Haring discussed the current political and security challenges facing Ukraine.

    This was a closed, off-the-record event for congressional staff.

    The briefing focused on the ongoing security challenges facing Ukraine while addressing concerns about recent political moves made by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Speakers offered their views on the role Congress can play to support stability and prevent a violent new front in Ukraine.

    The rise of Poroshenko marked the beginning of what many assumed would be a more western mindset. After coming to power, Poroshenko promised numerous government reforms, and initial signals suggested he would enact such reforms. However, with the approaching 2019 parliamentary and presidential elections many have begun to worry about the future of these reform efforts and Ukraine’s domestic stability. Poroshenko has been slow to enact anti-corruption measures and concerns are growing that opposition figures may be targeted by internal security forces. Recommendations were provided for improving the current US strategy for Ukraine.

      Tulsi took out Harris with one blow. Professional hit. Harris was pretty much THE dem candidate at the time after she wiped the stage with Biden over busing in the 1st debate.

      The queen wants to know who can rid her of this troublesome Army Major (active duty). The queen sending such messages is a sign things aren’t going well and Tulsi’s boys can take out that anyone at anytime, including the queen.

      Couple of data points to consider. Tulsi met with team Trump on 11/17/16. Jill Stein’s recount actually turned up more votes for Trump, and if memory serves, one recount was stopped because it was uncovering massive voter fraud. Theory going around that since Stein (Greens) and Johnson (Libertarian) showed very big vote gains over previous years, one of the the ways the 2016 election may have been “unfixed” by the good guys was to stop the siphoning off of Greens/Libertarian votes to the dems, at least in the crucial counties.

      I’m going, for now, with the plan that Biden’s nose will be kept above water long enough to keep any dem candidate from obtaining the majority of delegates to secure a first ballot win, then Hillary (or a Hillary puppet) will be offered up in a brokered convention. Could be the fear is that Tulsi is either going to push one of the candidates to a first ballot win or is a good choice herself in a brokered convention.

        Make take exactly! The other candidates are so flawed. So easy to dismantle in the primary stage. Tulsi is not. Clinton is worried about a fracture in vote because she has skin in the game. I wouldn’t rule out anything with her.

        2016 was interesting as many moderate (aka rational) Dems voted third party as a protest vote to send a message. The situation is primed for that to happen again.

          It’s obvious to me that Hillary thinks Tulsi running 3rd party would be a move to divide the democrat vote, which completely ignores that Trump won’t need a division of the democrat vote to win. The democrat vote is already divided…

          If the Russians truly wanted to divide the democrat vote, they would be grooming Bernie. Tulsi hasn’t managed to garner enough support to do ANYTHING in this election.

          This is the same crazy assed russian meddling theory Hillary & the DNC started against Trump, only now it’s aimed at a non-warmongering democrat that they don’t like. Crazy Hillary STILL hasn’t figured out why she lost the election, and still doesn’t have a clue why the democrats won’t win the 2020 election. She just wants to blame it all on the russians, and that’s just crazy.

          Hell.. republicans like Tulsi better than the democrats (Tucker Carlson practically drools over her), and if she ran 3rd party, it would more likley divide the republican vote than the democrat vote.

    • Democrats need both a socialist and a moderate on the ticket to unite their party. I actually think Tulsi was positioning herself to slide rightinto the VP slot and represent that moderate voice. If Hillary eventually enters the race, she would be seen as a moderate given how far left the party has veered. You can’t have two moderates, many of the lunatic fringe would stay home election day. Biden, one of the moderates, has already been scuttled. She’s in the process of taking out Tulsi. I think this is a good thing and should be encouraged.

          On August 12, 2018, Former Ukraine Prime Minister, oil & gas oligarch and current Presidential candidate Yulia Timoshenko, met with Adam Schiff.

          From neweasterneurope news: 12.20.18

          “The third and probably most damaging meeting was her photo opportunity with incoming House Intelligence Chairman, Democrat Adam Schiff, who is advocating for the imprisonment of President Trump. It would have been difficult for Tymoshenko to do more damage to her standing with the Trump administration during her visit to Washington than to meet with Schiff, a radical opponent of Trump. “Perhaps she can pose for a photo with Special Investigator Robert Mueller, former FBI Director James Comey, or defeated presidential candidate Hillary Clinton next time,” a Washington political consultant with knowledge of her meetings joked to me. ”

The family members also end up making bank by being awarded fat government contracts for companies that they run or are affiliated with which is another way funds can be transferred without going directly into the politician’s pocket…This is how Pelosi and DiFi, among MANY others, became wealthy – they inserted language into bills that essentially shut out all competition and gave huge incentives to companies that were owned/managed by their husbands!

      Technically, the oligarch that paid protection money to the Bidens was using his wealth to enrich the crooks. It was money well spent. The British investigation into Burisma quickly disappeared, and the Bidens threatened taking away US aid if the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma wasn’t immediately fired and the investigation shut down.

      These people are smarter than the people who directly took bribes from Saddam to let him spend oil money on arms when selling oil for food. That money was directly related to the program they had authority over.

      These creeps use their foreign trips to muscle themselves some indirect payola. Enforcing corruption as a requirement for U.S. aid. The UN has been doing this since time immemorial. To be able to benefit from graft, you need a corrupt partner as a recipient of aid.

      This is much more refined. It looks bad if anyone cares to complain. But they are protected from such complaints by fellow criminals and propagandists. Biden was just too stupid to keep his mouth shut. Even so, they are desperately trying to prevent quid and quo from being connected. And so far, they have been successful.

      The Congressional wailing over Syria strongly suggests that there are similar corruptions involved in Syria. Lots of congressional junkets have swept through the area.

        Do a search at http://www.cis.org using “Morman” or “LDS” and you will see quite a few articles on how that church is open-borders (present and historical). They are quieter/more covert about it than the Catholic, Jewish, Lutheran, etc. church leaders but still quite effective. Also go to http://www.numbersusa.com and check out the Congressional grade cards for the UT delegation. Out of the six UT members, only one has an A grade (Curtis) and ALL support more visa workers.

        That said about church leadership, my experience here in UT (only 4 yrs), almost every Mormon I meet I would guess is quite pro-America. I think they are busy raising (usually) large families, taking care of granddparents/grandchildren, and attending church so they just take the easy way out and vote as the church leaders would like. While it’s in church doctrine to respect laws, sometime that doctrine interferes with money flows to the church and money talks louder as observed by CIS in their political actions.

      These are people who are still Democrats but recognize that the party has taken a hard, hard left turn. By supporting Biden they are saying they do not want to go there. So where else will they go? Biden voters will be a gold mine for the Trump campaign.

      HC is clearly getting ready to run. She sees Gabby as a formidable opponent otherwise she would not attack her this way. At present Gabby is not near the top.

      Look for Gabby to start climing to the top of the Dem group. If she does, watch out POTUS. Tucker likes her and he has a large fan base.

      My only problem with Nunes dress was that he did NOT call out/name ANY of the individuals who engaged in these criminal/illegal activities. Why was that? Would have loved him to say at the end “…and the Chairman of this faux impeachment inquiry sought help from the Russians to obtain NUDE PICTURES of Trump…”. Our side needs to start throwing some punches and stop playing “nice”.

    Tom Arnold Aims JFK Assassination Tweet at Trump
    “They showed up for JFK too.”
    18 October, 2019

    https://summit.news/2019/10/18/tom-arnold-aims-jfk-assassination-tweet-at-trump/

    The meaning of the tweet wasn’t hard to deduce given what happened to JFK in Dallas 56 years ago.

    Twitter later removed the tweet saying it violated their rules, but Arnold’s account is still active.

    Other Twitter users also flagged the tweet to the Secret Service, with one commenting, “This imbecile is threatening the President of the United States.”

    Arnold was previously interviewed by Secret Service agents over his anti-Trump tweets.

    As we previously highlighted, the actor’s wife claimed that Arnold’s obsession with Donald Trump combined with his drug addiction led to the end of their marriage.

    “Tom’s fixation on ‘taking down’ Donald Trump was an ongoing issue in our marriage,” said his wife, adding “For the past two years it has consumed his life and presented numerous safety issues for our family.”

    She also accused the actor of “abuse of prescription drugs,” namely Phentermine and Fenfluramine.

      What? Phentermine/fenfluramine was the famous “phen-fen” cocktail prescribed for weight loss back in the 90’s. Neither drug was particularly associated with getting high, but of course anything can be abused.

      Thing is fenfluramine was taken off the market in September 1997 due to causing a rare but fatal side-effect. So the comment about the actor doesn’t make much sense, unless it refers to behavior going on 22+ years ago.

      It’s certainly possible Arnold is abusing more up-to-date prescription drugs, but hard to tell what’s going on with him to account for the crazy talk he’s spouting…

    Trump Campaign To Sue CNN For “Substantial Payment” After Project Veritas Undercover Exposé
    18 Oct 2019

    https://www.zerohedge.com/political/trump-campaign-sue-cnn-substantial-payment-after-project-veritas-undercover-expose

    The Trump administration plans to sue CNN over bias and “wrongful practices” following revalations contained in a recent Project Veritas undercover exposé.

    In a four-page letter to CNN, its CEO Jeff Zucker and Executive VP David Vigilante, Trump attorney Charles J. Harder provided several examples of bias against Trump, who seeks “a substantial payment of damages.”

    “Listing several examples from the just-released Project Veritas videotapes of CNN insiders describing Zucker’s demand for “impeachment above all else,” Harder wrote that they “are merely the tip of the iceberg of the evidence my clients have accumulated over recent years.”

    He added, “Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by so-called ‘mainstream’ news, as the current situation.” – Washington Examiner

            PDJT would apparently be the plaintiff, suing on damage to his reputation. He would be easily subject to discovery and testimony, volunteering to the jurisdiction of the court by filing suit. No countersuit needed, although it would be likely to prevent voluntary dismissal of the case by the plaintiff.
            The likely penalty for PDJT refusing testimony would be dismissal of his case. But a CNN “countersuit” where PDJT’s testimony would still be compelled, could not be dismissed by the plaintiff.

            I would not recommend filing such a case.

      (also known as the “Trademark Cyberpiracy Prevention Act”)

      On November 29, 1999, the President signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act for FY 2000 (Pub. L. No. 106-113, 113 Stat. 150) which contains the Intellectual Property and Communications Omnibus Reform Act of 1999. One title of the intellectual property legislation is the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act that provides new civil remedies against those who, in bad faith, register a trademark or service mark with intent to profit from the mark.

    GB;
    I agree with most poster’s comments that loyally defended Mulvaney’s press conference, but one of the main reasons that these pathetic conferences in the Press Briefing Room were wisely stopped after Sarah left is because the venue greatly benefits the sleazy mob press and it’s difficult to control them when you let them pile on, change the topic or deliver political attacks and accusations against P Trump with impunity. One person against 50 (plus) performer jackal reporters is not great odds if you are the One. The bully media love the Briefing Room set up.

    Watching a Trump official, I like and respect, be trapped in that hellhole Press Room once again was not enjoyable. Mick tried to befriend the evil press in the beginning but as usual they became an escalating off topic raving mob trying their best to entrap him. End this 1 on 50 grilling idiocy completely and stick to Trump’s Marine One pressers or controlled Topic Only press conferences. Only Maestro Trump can easily control the press gaggle by “not hearing them” or moving away from any anti Trumper that tries to perform for the cameras.

    Mulvaney didn’t cost POTUS any of his committed supporters but some of his answers definitely provided the MSM with world wide sound bites that helped their side more than Trump’s. But Mick deserves credit for trying his his best to beat the 50+ to 1 odds. However, I doubt he was asked by POTUS to take on the impeachment maelstrom in that stuffy restrictive venue.

    https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/10/dr_strangeshiff_or_how_i_learned_to_stop_worrying_and_love_the_impeachment_comments.html#commen Who could have guessed that the words of Soviet secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria to Joseph Stalin, “Show me the man, and I will show you the crime,” would be strangely embodied in American politics and jurisprudence in the 21st century? Moreover, according to Dr. Strangesсhiff — congressman, chairman, and commissar — these wonderful words have recently found their way into the U.S. Constitution. Secret impeachment would seem to be a new idea, but the curious Dr. Strangesсhiff borrowed it from the closed Soviet trials of dissidents, “enemies of the people,” and other “undesirable elements.” Bravo, comrade Strangesсhiff! Please, continue the Orange Man trial behind closed doors. After all, the American people are ecstatic about closed hearings without access by journalists or lawyers. They are also especially fond of the removal of the president based on an anonymous gossip-monger, or two,..
