      The House ‘show vote’ taken yesterday against Schiff is another sorry excuse for GOP pushback. It’s as valuable as all the votes against Obamacare so they could go home while running for reelection and recite how many times they voted against it. Fire the hell up, GOP House!! Get rowdy, get in front of every camera, be everywhere and shake it up. For once, please! If you’re running for reelection in ’20 and think Trump’s impeachment will somehow be a badge of honor, a great sympathy-inspiring tool to get votes, think again.

      Same goes for Lindsey Graham. Take them to the mats. Fight. Keep your nose out of Turkey and honor the oath you’ve taken to defend America against all enemies. We have awful, evil, destructive enemies within, Lindsey. Y’all better get to work and go nonstop because voters are wondering where you actually stand and who you stand with

      As for Schiff and Pelosi withholding documents, blockading GOP members from meetings, who has oversight of that? That’s all we ever hear out of Maxine Waters–that the House has oversight duty and power over the President. Well, who the hell has oversight over this lawless impeachment inquiry? Who do we call? Do we show up on the steps of the SCOTUS? Mitch McConnell, what are you doing? How come we aren’t hearing from you, Mr. Senate Leader? What offices do we show up to in numbers and demand that this effort be scrutinized and taken over by legal oversight?

      It’s going to take Deplorables getting organized and showing up or this is going to go too far and do too much damage.

        100% right. Pure failure theater. And anybody who expects anything different going forward is a fooling himself. (Likewise for anybody who expects an IG to resolve anything.) The GOP are passive enablers of the deep state. If an impeachment comes to a vote in the Senate, they WILL vote to convict — I’ve said this from the beginning. The only possible logical outcome to this presidency is the ultimate Constitutional crisis.

      The American people aren’t embarrassed by the Pelosi/Schiff dishonesty. We are angry as hell and fit to be tied that there seems to be nothing any Republican elected official can or will do about it. We aren’t embarrassed, we’re enraged at having to watch our President out there everyday, swinging back and fighting a battle born of deceit, anti-Americanism and sedition which takes time away from his real job.

      As long as the people that could move and shake this disgusting mess believe We, the People, are merely embarrassed, no justice will come about. Just another example of Washington elites being completely out of touch with the real world and taking for granted that we are just embarrassed. We’re way past embarrassed.

      Wasn’t Liz Cheney one of those that voted to condemn the President on Syria?

      A couple things I am recently not getting. Let me put this out there.

      First:
      Why fold on the G-7 meeting at Doral? Bad optics? Perceived Influence peddling?
      I think the world leaders would be much more comfortable at Dorall.

      Didn’t Reagan bring Gorbachev or some other Russian to his ranch? Hell, he has already brought Xi to …..wait….that was Mara Lago

      Second:
      I believe he has said nothing regarding the House Republicans vote to condemn his actions in Syria. An example would be now complimentary to Cheny.
      Not making enemies for impeachment?

      Maybe I am answering my own questions.

          Totally agree with you, ice. Everything President Trump does has a purpose. And, only he, and maybe very small number of select few, know the purpose of this Doral theatre.

          Personally, I think Doral would be a great place to hold the G-7 or any other G meeting, for all the reasons our VSGPDJT has tweeted out. But, he’s got a plan. The details will eventually come to light.

      This is not true, if one widens the scope to include the Senate.

      Lindsey Graham’s judicial committee can get subpoenas. He could simply bring every single person that Schiff is interviewing and put them under oath in public and ask all the questions in front of cameras.

      This would end this charade in a heartbeat.

      But, he hasn’t yet. There must be a reason…. hmmm….. I wonder why?…

      So…they can grow tons of soybeans and pork in Turkey?

      Last time I checked the US was the Number 1 grower/supplier of soybeans with Brazil being number 2, and every other country far lower in quantity.

      However, China appears to have created a workaround from buying US pork:
      2018 Pork Imports into China

      China’s global purchases of imported pork totaled US$2.07 billion in 2018. Below are the top 15 suppliers from which China imported the highest dollar value worth of pork during 2018. Within parenthesis is the percentage change in value for each supplying country since 2014.

      Germany: US$392 million (up 107.9% from 2014)
      Spain: $385 million (up 139.3%)
      Brazil: $317.3 million (up 15222.9%)
      Canada: $249.3 million (up 175.3%)
      Netherlands: $145.4 million (up 763.8%)
      Denmark: $140.4 million (down -1.9%)
      United States: $129.4 million (down -45.1%)
      France: $105.3 million (up 67.3%)
      United Kingdom: $69 million (up 72.9%)
      Chile: $58.6 million (up 43.8%)
      Ireland: $55.6 million (up 72.7%)
      Hungary: $11.9 million (up 419.9%)
      Belgium: $7.7 million (up 54.2%)
      Finland: $2.9 million (no 2014 data)
      Mexico: $2.6 million (no 2014 data)
      The listed 15 countries shipped 99.9% of China’s pork imports in 2018.

        Pay attention to the Ty Clevenger / Ed Butowsky lawsuit.

        They just may get the judge to rule to force the FIB to turn over evidence on the Seth Rich case.

        Also when this goes to court, there is a chance they will call Ratner, Seth’s Brother and possibly get a statement/deposition from Assange.

        Personally, and I am guessing but this is what I think Durham has discovered that the DNC server wasn’t hacked by Russians and thus everything has been a setup/frame job from the start.

      I was wondering how many of these crappy middle east third world countries we now have our military in.

      It seems like we have 50 soldiers here and 75 soldiers there and another 100 soldiers in another country that I thought we were long gone from.

      Almost all of these places have been fighting each other for decades if not centuries.

    The source, oilprice.com, is nothing to scoff, nor is the author. The article goes into excruciating detail about the inner thinking’s of Tehran leadership and the Gulf mess, and so far is extremely biased, as if written by Tehran leadership.

    It covers the time range, events and meetings from September and October this year. I will not attempt to tldr it.

    If you want a really deep dive into Tehrans perspectives, plans, tactics and strategies, grab a six pack and snuggle in. If you aren’t going to read for more than 10 minutes, don’t bother starting.

    Given the timing of it’s release, and other open information, some may gain an intense insight into something that may be about to unfold.

    Some things seems to conflict with very recent (days) events. I have strong suspicions that would be improper to voice in a venue like this. I expect this is a pretty important and significant piece of several puzzles.

I DO believe there is a hidden MIC agenda, and probably an anti-Trump agenda.

          No doubt there IS a lot of details in the document, but I’m acquainted with the style of Iranian writing you’re describing. Kind of a mixture of fantasy, boastfulness, threats and religious fervor. It takes expertise in deciphering the “plot” to determine how much of it represents real plans vs. imaginary or wishful exaggeration.

          According to authors “on the ground” in Iran, the people, as opposed to the ruling “elites”, don’t share the religious fervor of the mullahs. There are enough videos of Iranians assaulting and insulting mullahs to convince a viewer that there’s a huge divide among Iranians and a great deal of hatred for the regime. To my mind that’s the truly worthy Iranian “narrative” to learn about.

          BTW if not already on your daily reading list, the best source of info about Iran and ME is Heshmat Alavi’s twitter feed. ( https://twitter.com/HeshmatAlavi ) It rates the highest recommendation I could give it.

Because the person who wrote the article thinks that religion is just something some people do on the weekends. The Iranian mullahs- not the people- are a specific sect of Islam. Not just shia, but shia twelvers. They follow a script they found in a cave. And they see it all coming true. The cheetah is off the throne in mecca, which means that the twelfth Mahdi is alive. Right now. End times. The mullahs are not like the Christians, preparing for the end of days. The shia twelvers believe that it’s their duty to help bring it about. And don’t think it’s a test of faith, the mullahs will be safe in their bunkers while their people burn. They believe that the destruction of Israel will trigger the revelation of the twelfth Mahdi. Then he’s supposed to lead them to take Mecca from the house of Saud. Then a thousand years of darkness…er, global caliphate. The thing to know is that they take this stuff extremely seriously. Deadly serious. Economic considerations are real, but that’s the means to an end. And the end goal for them is Armageddon, at least for Israel. Oddly enough, they believe that a group of the survivors of the destruction of Israel will be instrumental in the final battle, on their side. Looking at the jew hating sect of Judaism, maybe it’s not so odd.

  34. Is there anything in the works to end the farce that is “voter-harvesting”?

    I am concerned about the loss on the census/citizenship question. That question should never have been in question. Between illegal aliens [who VOTE] and grown anchor babies CA is going to increase the number of electors in the electoral college. The effect of this increase will be to make it even more challenging for a non-crazy leftist to get enough of the remaining states to win.

    Excerpt:

    Ms. Crockford accused officials at the Canadian university of bowing to “outside pressure,” the result of her research showing that polar bear populations are stable and even thriving, not plummeting as a result of shrinking Arctic sea ice, defying claims of the climate change movement.

    Her dismissal, which she announced Wednesday in a post on her Polar Bear Science blog, has spurred alarm over the implications for academic freedom and the rise of the “cancel culture” for professors and scientists who challenge climate catastrophe predictions.

    I was trying to make sense of Hillary’s outburst against Tulsi because it irreparably it damaged both of them. It damaged Tulsi by permanently alienating a great swath of the far left voters she must have to win and it really hurt Hillary’s The One prestige.

    So que bono? Everything the Dems do is scripted and coordinated and Hillary is not stupid. It’s important to note that Hillary’s Russians Russians Everywhere! happened the day it became known her emails are back to haunt her. Could it be that the planned strategy for Hillary to survive what is coming down the pike is to take calling someone a Russian collaborator to such a ridiculous extreme that it becomes a joke? That’s in line with Clinton strategy of blaming your accusers of what you are guilty of.

    On cue…. here is Rolling Stone setting it up:

      My point is different. I’m wondering if Hillary is using this opportunity to create her usual defense on her upcoming email release – accusing the person accusing her of the same crime. It’s her modus operandi. You are a poopy face – no you are a poopy face and I have the media to make it so.

      That’s exactly what they are doing with the Ukraine and it is effective. They took Biden’s corruption and made it Trump’s crime. It’s foolish to underestimate their ability to do this.

      If you read that article I posted, it seems VERY POSSIBLE to me that is what they are setting up. If they jump the shark the shark Russia! Russia! Under The Bed! then if it comes out in her emails that HILLARY was cooperating with the Russians then they just wave it away saying everyone is accusing everyone of being a Russian plant. Pshaw.

      Don’t believe me. They are effectively doing it right now as we speak with Biden and the Ukraine.Look at Blackface, antifa, metoo. They are MASTERS at this.

      My point is that Hillary made this move on the same day that it came out that her emails are back in play. I think that is significant.

    ‘It’s too much’: Democrats shudder at Trump’s money machine
    Democrats are increasingly worried by the spending chasm between the two sides — and its implications for 2020.
    10/21/2019

    -snipped-

    Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee have raised more than $300 million this year for his reelection — more than any other sitting president in history at this point in the campaign.

    Trump has nearly twice as much cash on hand — $158 million, between his campaign account and the RNC — as Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee had at this time in his successful re-election run.

    Just a few bits and bobs about the trade (tariff) war that is not a trade war.

    Firstly, the commonly expressed opinion that the actions taken by the Administration is creating an economic crisis for the US and China and affecting world trade. Double bollocks.

    The PRC economy has been in free fall long before The President made his moves. In fact their slowing economy was well evidenced beforehand, dodgy statistics from the PRC notwithstanding.

    This is totally due to their internal policy choices and all relate back to debt and demographics. Their command and control policies gives them lousy feedback, from the bottom up. And the top down doesn’t have a clue and cling to their ideology and Xi Jinping Thought. 🤣

    The economic slow down in Asia and in the EU ( Germany in particular) is directly related to the knock on effects of The PRC economic slowdown, not what the US is doing. South Koreas’s Samsung is relocating all of its China factories to Vietnam, and India with a very big deal. The incentives are no longer there in China to keep them there.

    An interesting article in the Financial Times has this quote:

    “One senior US official, who has spent almost 30 years dealing with Chinese Communist party cadres across the country, said he was shocked during a recent visit to Beijing at how badly briefed even politburo-level officials appeared to be.”

    “They appeared to have been given very bad information,” the US official said. “They kept saying things that were flat-out false.” 

    Even in private settings, Chinese officials cling to their official narrative that American and British “black hands” sparked the unrest in Hong Kong. It is a narrative that conveniently absolves everyone, from Beijing’s representative office in the semi-autonomous territory to Mr Xi himself, of the failure to appreciate the potentially destabilising consequences of Hong Kong’s unrepresentative political system, the chronic incompetence of its coddled civil servants-turned-politicians and its soaring economic inequality. “

    Well worth a read in its entirety.

    “China’s Xi Jinping has more to worry about than slowing economic growth

    Crises such as Hong Kong protests and African swine fever offer sterner test of party’s grip on power”

      Unfortunately the safe bet is solidly on the former. Given the anecdotes and examples cited in prior paragraphs, there isn’t a single example of Chinese leadership even knowing how to step outside of their current collapsing box.

      And that situation does sadly parallel the dilemma we are as steph_gray has commented here.

    “ This is not only business but national security and eventually core values of US being sold out! Stop it now! Stop doing business with #CCP and #StandWithHongKong”

    The end of single-family zoning in California?: Susan Shelley

      To rephrase your comment in a different way, “what you see is what you get.” To me, the interesting thing about what we all are shocked by what’s happening in California under Newsom is, not only is he extreme, he has a completely radical Uber leftist state legislature to do his bidding and by signing these dangerous bills into law—-he is executing core components of the new green deal into State Law.

      It’s all happening in plain view. California is the incubator, the laboratory, of the new green deal. Sadly, I predict the DNC will look to run Newsom in 2024.

    • I feel badly for the people who own a single family home and now have to live in a neighborhood with 3 houses where there used to be 1 house on the lot. But on the upside their single family property will now be very desirable for investors looking to buy single family homes and build 2 more houses on it. Then maybe they can get enough money to leave California and move to another blue state and try it again.

      In the end, we all get what we voted for. Unfortunately, California is over run with commie dems and this will never stop.
