    It’s time for all of us to push back on this whole “quid pro quo” nonsense.

    There was no quid pro quo with respect to the Ukraine. The transcript proves that.

    But quid pro quo is not illegal with foreign aid or any other type of potential leverage.

    Since the inception of foreign aid, it’s been used as leverage. President Trump used it to get the Central American governments to accept the third-party asylum agreements. President Trump uses the threat of tariffs and sanctions all of the time. This is what all governments do. It’s not illegal. It’s part of the policy-making toolbox.

    But these corrupt liars would have the American people believe its an impeachable offense.

    The whole argument is built on a lie.

      Precisely. But even in the face of this obvious, objective sham our side is running around screaming “No quid pro quo.” We’re dancing to their organ grinder. Again.

      Every time we deny it, we only reinforce and sustain the “controversy.” And look weak. That is the paradox of denial. The Left doesn’t deny, they attack. Attack is all they know. Defensiveness is all we know.

          Dems want Biden to draw votes, but not enough to win on the first ballot during the convention. So if you have a competitive 3-way primary race with Biden, Warren & Sanders all pulling 1/3 of the vote each you”ll go to a brokered convention where they will insert whomever they want after a no decision first ballot.

          They need Biden to hold moderates. My take is if moderates leave now and start actively listening to the Trump campaign they won’t come back. It would be the same dynamic as the blacks who began listening to the Trump campaign. They’re not coming back.

      One way or another, impeachment will happen. The Democrats have gone way too far down the road towards impeaching President Trump to turn back now.

      And from their perspective, the exceptional political rewards are worth the exceptional political risks. It’ll be the next big escalation in the Democrat’s all out political war on President Trump and the Republicans.

      Yes, the “quid pro quo” line of attack is nonsense. Every article of impeachment the House passes will be founded in a blatant lie which is being spun into an impeachable offense.

      What the Democrats are doing is criminalizing the normal and legal actions any president takes in conducting the day-to-day business of government.

      In any case, Pelosi needs 218 votes to push through a quick “slam-bam thanky ma’am” fast-track impeachment of the president. More likely than not, she will manipulate the process to do it with a single vote made directly from the House floor.

      I expect House action on a fast-track impeachment vote to happen in late 2019 or in early 2020. This action will put the monkey squarely on the backs of the Republicans to make the next big move in dealing with the question of impeachment.

      What we have seen so far pales in comparison to what will be seen once the articles of impeachment have been passed.

      President Trump and his team had better be ready and willing to give just as good as they get when all out political war by media blitz and by unrestricted lawfare commences against them.

      This whole story makes me sick to my stomach! There is a condition called Munchausen Syndrome by proxy where a parent, usually a mother makes their child ill in order to get attention for themselves. It is a diagnosed mental condition and the children are immediately taken from the custody of any parent who would cause harm to their own children out of some sick desire for recognition.

      But somehow, in the case of all these poor little ones who are being “transitioned” no one is willing to call this out for what it is… A mentally ill mother who has decided to destroy her own offspring! This is not the first case of this kind but I am praying that it wakes America up to the irreversible abuse that is being done, all in the name of “progressive” gender politics!

      Can confirm. The final straw for me on Texas… July 31 (3:45am), unbeknownst to me, a likely would-be assailant was lurking in the shadows. This was *WITHIN* my privacy-fenced-in backyard, Maybe 25-30 feet away from where I was sitting.

      It just so happened I’d walked inside to get a drink, soon returning with an extra 130 lbs behind me (Great Pyrenees).

      While making his usual rounds, he came across a figure hiding in the corner of the outdoor kitchen/deck area. Not sure which one of the 2 was more surprised by, but his intense growl/bark caused me to look up. Immediately followed by some bumps (table/chairs?), & the unfamiliar clumping of someone sprinting across the deck… with a white ball of fur giving chase (inches behind)!

      Given my line of sight, with only limited lighting coming from the nearby pool, I first noticed 2 big feet (dark shoes). My eyes traveled up to take in a tall dark figure– Big dude. He appeared to be in all black from head to toe. I’d say over 6ft, 200lbs… or was outfitted in some sort of swat gear.

      Whoever flew across the small lawn area, flying over the privacy-fence in what seemed one swift move. That this was so out of the ordinary (area included), I started to question my own assessment. But the dog lunged at the fence just behind, & then began sniffing along the base, growling. I’m guessing they were lying where they landed, or were army-crawling away.

      Being me… I took my phone over to provide more light. But I thought better of looking over the top– being short I would’ve needed to climb up to see over… so they would’ve easily heard me coming. I wasn’t looking to take a bashing to my head/face!

      At this point, I’m fairly sure my “fight or flight” response is defective! But having lived the absolute BS I’ve been subjected to over the past 2 1/2 years, you’d understand why that is. Didn’t bother calling to report it… there’d been some prior (related) incidents indicating some within local LE, shouldn’t be trusted.

      As for Texas– within weeks I moved several states away! Not looking back either. Granted I’d pretty much decided upon doing so just prior.

      Good dog! He’s also been subjected to some of the BS along the way. He’s grown somewhat OVER-protective to put it mildly, but that’s not his fault!

      These people truly are demented & sick!

        Rescued from the pound, Crapped all over the back

        up, washed down, loved on. 108 pounds of gorgeous Great
        pyrenees, with a bit of collie thrown in. Looked like Lassy

        It was almost like Leo could talk. You always knew what he
        was trying to convey. Had 4 wonderful years with Leo.

        He’s buried under his favorite tree in our back yard. I think

        resting place.

    Here is what I would like someone to say: “We have a treaty with Ukraine, signed during the Clinton presidency, in regards to fighting corruption in our respective countries. Before we gave them monetary aid, which comes from the tax dollars of American citizens, we wanted to make sure they were going to abide by the terms of that treaty. Ukrainian new leadership is wanted to fight corruption, unlike the previous Ukrainian administration, and we are true partners in that endeavor. They are investigating the corruption in their country that occurred under their previous administration. We are investigating how foreign influences impacted the 2016 race, of which part of that investigation involves Ukraine. If that corruption investigation leads to Biden, the Obama Administration, and the DNC, then that is on them. Remember, no one is above the law.”

      A bit of history about this “Treaty”: The Clinton treaty was NOT aimed at government corruption. It was aimed at individuals trying to escape Nazis war crimes, when there was a major outbreak of Nazis hunting at the time to buy votes. There were Ukrainian ex-camp guards and administrators hiding the US and Ukraine. The Bush and Obama administrations goofed and forget this law was still on the books and it is now a land mine that is blowing up in their faces.

        It’s fun and fits a narrative to believe this is true. However, do you have any factual data that supports this conclusion?

        I feel the exact opposite is true. I think most federal employees are exceedingly patriotic. The media and America’s enemies (oops, that’s redundant) would have us think otherwise. One detractor of President Trump is afforded a media megaphone and is interpreted as “representative of all federal workers”.

            As I tried (unsuccessfully) to say, MY experience forms MY opinion, which may be different than others’ experience and opinions.

            There is NO doubt that a coup was planned, executed and is still being carried out against Our President. The vast majority of citizens are not aware of the details as they, I think, only casually listen to mainstream media.

            Federal employees, the ones I have worked with, for the most part fit into the description of “ordinary citizens”. Despite working within the system, most go to work, do their jobs and go home. I have no doubt that the majority vote Democrat (which, despite what I think, does not make them unpatriotic, just wrong). Either through historical precedent or ignorance (likely a combination), they continue with the status quo.

            When we talk about senior members of Federal organizations, it’s a whole other ballgame. Although I respect the “ordinary” worker, and was one, we can be very sheep-like. Speaking out about political issues isn’t in the employee handbook (actually, just the opposite is in there).

            President Trump has challenged the system.

            I hope MY opinion about the majority of Federal workers being patriotic is true and that they will dig for information about this President’s agenda and be able to break free from the herd mentality of the past.

            Finally, I respect all other opinions. My information is based only on MY experience and I have NO data to support MY opinion.

    A thought on the “lynching” “controversy”: lynching was not uncommon as a form of frontier justice.
    Punishment without a trial and a verdict took place over things such as stealing a horse or cattle.
    Even a famous piece of literature, “The Oxbow Incident”, centers around the lynching of the accused. To pretend only blacks were lynched is to display either a woeful misunderstanding or a purposeful misinterpretation of history.

      Don’t forget, to Democrats, now that their slave holding, and all their lynching of Republican Carpetbaggers and blacks, so that they could impose Jim Crow, has been demonized, they have turned the story on its head, blaming Republicans for all of that.

      And what has become painfully obvious, they believe their lies. How else can they go from deep sad that Mueller said no collusion, to claiming Mueller found collusion, in less than three weeks? One liar steps forward to contradict the truth, others rabidly repeat the lies, and soon the lies become the only ‘truth’, and reality gets shouted down, banned and relegated to disdain as conspiracy crackpottery.

      Just try telling these nut cases that Democrats seceded because they wanted to preserve slavery. That Democrats fought and died to keep slaves in their place. That Democrats formed the KKK and similar terrorist groups to fight Republicans from imposing freedom of slaves and giving ex-slaves civil rights. That having forced the ouster of the Carpetbaggers, that Democrats imposed Jim Crow, and kept resurrecting the Klan to keep blacks down. That Democrats kept Republicans from passing anti-lynching laws.

      And that when Democrats finally reversed themselves on civil rights, that they were deeply split and needed strong support from Republicans to get it passed.

      Because of this, “lynching” is a very appropriate term for the President to have used. He is literally being subjected to frontier justice.

      The American people should also be reminded what President John F Kennedy said about “secret meetings” and kangaroo courts. I am astonished that the Democrats gathered around Schiff and kept him from censure. The Senate didn’t protect Joseph McCarthy, and what Schiff is now doing is very considerably worse. (And: Unconstitutional.)

      We don’t want Impeachment to be used as a political tool. The Founders recognized this possibility, deliberated at length, and intended to prevent what is now going on. I think we need a court case, Trump v. US House of Representatives, to take this directly to the SCOTUS to formally declare, “Lawfare is Wrong.” I never want to see a political party gaining majority in both Houses and impeaching their opponent on Inauguration Day. Merely because (s)he is their opponent. Which is the sum and total of what we see happening right now. This is Unconstitutional. It must be stopped.

    Which blossomed into this idea, which has 4 parts:

    1. Withhold ALL donations to the RNC (including joint appeals) and individual incumbent R candidates’ campaigns, until after the House and Senate act on impeachment, and tell them so.
    2. Advise PDJT of the plan to withhold all donations that go in part to the RNC until the impeachment votes by Republicans are known.
    3. Ask PDJT to publish by tweet and other means (Pascale, use your fertile imagination) the way to donate
    solely to his re-electon campaign, excluding the RNC.

      You don’t want to withhold donations from the good guys. But we need a RELIABLE list of who the good guys are on a state by state and even local level. The biased papers do that for the democrats but we are left to wonder who are the true conservatives versus which are pure GOP swamp or even Soros trojan horses.

      I don’t want to send my money to the RNC because I don’t believe they have MY best interests at heart anymore. But if there was a reliable list of primary candidates or incumbents then the money could be sent to them directly It would be brilliant to just bypass the RNC and allow people to send to the most needed battlegrounds. The list could even include letting me know which judges on my ballot are nothing more than democrat operatives and which are the ones upholding the law.

      That way those supporting the impeachment sham will not make it past the primary and more money can go directly to the good guys. But the list needs to be endorsed by Trump or a Trump supported organization for it to have credibility.

I think Hillary calling other democrats “Russian assets” recently was a desperate attempt by her to keep the silly narrative going for her own protection. I conversed with a low info lefty the other day who still refused to acknowledge Trump & his campaign were surveilled.

      The ENTIRE impeachment effort is premised on making believe that 1) The Russian Collusion narrative had a legitimate beginning, that other countries weren’t involved, that the prima facia evidence against Biden doesn’t exist and that the President has no right to look into it……which is why I don’t think there will be an impeachment coming out of the House.

    Ok! Here’s the truth in my opinion.

    The military complex is rife with officers that are still back in the 80s and 90s and IMO we have troops that are stuck in between old fascist and religious regimes. We are fighting with old equipment, tired troops and disgruntled citizens. A recipe for a long drawn out conflict with no resolution to our benefit whatsoever unless you are part of the Military Industrial Complex.

    We are now spending a huge amount of money on state of the art equipment that will take a great deal of training to use. Our heroes need to be brought home, given R&R, and when they get back in action they will be refreshed, trained, with outstanding capabilies and the best equipment in the world. UNBEATABLE for a long time to come.

    Chinese are smart by making sure they have a strong military without being involed in multiple war
    zones and not depleting their war chest. We need to take this into consideration and make sure we do something similar.

    Future wars will be fought in space as well as on earth. We can’t be battle ready if we do not have trained experience operatives at the controls because they are stuck in long drawn out conflicts that have no end. The war chest needs to be used wisely.

    The full court press is on. Now that they couldn’t pull off the coup with the Mueller hoax investigation, all of the usual suspects are lining up to participate in the much messier impeachment hoax in order to drive Trump out of office before the 2020 election. This play has worked for them in the past against Richard Nixon, so don’t bet against them pulling it off again. All PDJT has to do is use a misplaced word that they can attack him with and more of the fence sitters jump off to the impeachment side. PDJT needs us more than he even knows right now. We have to see to it that he makes it through the election and I don’t think it will be easy, even though he seems to be the only honest person in Washington. They are all worried about getting caught on their own shenanigans before they can summarily dispatch their tormentor.

    Since all of the political hoaxes supported by these America haters are coming out from the protection of the closets, we have to understand that they think they have already won the war and that dealing with Trump is just the last small hurdle to be overcome. All of the enemy are rushing to the war fronts in unison and, if they succeed in getting rid of the ‘Orange Man’, all of The People anywhere on this sorry humanoid planet will be the big losers.

        And you are telling me something I haven’t already figured out about 30+ years ago, and where is the propaganda that you think is in my post. Nixon was driven from office in the same way that is currently being attempted against Trump. Nixon was never shown to be involved in carrying out that pathetic crime. They found some conversations that they interpreted as Nixon’s participation, even thought there was never proof that Nixon was involved in any planning of that break-in. Mostly they found foul language, which is supposedly protected by the First Amendment. Carl Bernstein is no less committed to the trashing of Trump than he was to the trashing of Nixon.

        The impeachment hoax was less transparent then because there were no contrarians in either the media or the government to defend Nixon. So, it was much easier for the Demcommies to put on a real legal looking hoax. And, they never had to take a vote on impeachment. The danger of coordinated propaganda is what I was writing about. Not whether there was an underlying crime in the current impeachment hoax.

The police can’t do anything unless obvious harassment, stalking, threats of violence are involved. I advise keeping only the calls that can prove one of these crimes has been committed and turning them over to the police.

        I was advised to change my phone number. But the carrier advised me to purchase an app that will block all robo calls for only $17 / month paid to the carrier. I don’t see the point of helping my carrier make more money by paying for a service that they can easily provide without a charge to anyone who needs it.
