    Just heard Bill OReilly on Hannity radio. What a dope!
    Hey Bill, our president has gone through he– as have SO MANY around him including his family. He is obsessed with BRINGING JUSTICE to the coup plotters so NO OTHER PRESIDENT GOES THROUGH THIS ABOMINATION. Period.

    Where is your love of America, Bill? She is being assaulted. I will most certainly NOT buy your book.

      Yes I agree. I heard him too and was yelling at the radio. O’Reilly is so full of himself. Keeps repeating Trump is OBSESSED with outing the coup attempt. OBSESSED because he thinks Obama is behind it. DUH Bill – of course he is.

      The way O’Reilly says it is as if nobody else subjected to what Trump has been subjected too would be effing OBSESSED with outing the evildoers. ESPECIALLY WHEN THE MEDIA HAS HALF THE COUNTRY LIVING IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE BY MAKING THEM THINK TRUMP IS THE BAD GUY and OBAMA IS A MESSIAH.

      Bill tries to frame himself as unbiased and just the facts kind of guy. Let’s wait for DOJ and see what they say he says. WTF Bill there is enough evidence in the public domain to know that this is the biggest political scandal in US history – Spare me the willful idiocy!

      I had the radio on during that the O’Reilly “interview”. I didn’t get irritated with O’Reilly. Doesn’t matter what he has to say, because he is irrelevant. Anyway, he wasn’t allowed to talk enough to get irritated with him. Hannity ate up almost all of the air time repeating his “naked Trump” prank call routine.

      Hannity is sooooo out of touch with his audience now.

        Love this and grateful to our fighting men and women.

        I hope we get some additional info on what evidence they confiscated within the compound as there is some interesting stuff circulating out there so it would be nice to possibly gets some facts on what they may have found.

        I assume these three things below are just coincidences………..

        1) PT Executive Order of Syria Sanctions on Oct 14

        2) Pelosi / Schiff trip to Jordan and Afghanistan on Oct 19

        3) The raid on Oct 27

    Some Republicans are making the mistake of complaining about fairness and other details rather than legitimacy. This strengthens the Democrat’s position and makes it appear stronger than it actually is. They’ve allowed themselves to become Pelosi’s puppets.

    These hearings are illegitimate and this resolution does not change that. This resolution authorizes proceedings for an existing investigation which has never been authorized:

    Sec 2. For the purpose of continuing the investigation described in the first section of this resolution, the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is authorized to conduct proceedings…

    Sec 4. The House authorizes the Committee on the Judiciary to conduct proceedings relating to the impeachment inquiry referenced in the first section of this resolution…

    Sec 1. Resolved, That the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Committees on Financial Services, Foreign Affairs, the Judiciary, Oversight and Reform, and Ways and Means, are directed to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America.

    Where is the authorization for these Committees to conduct investigations described in Section 1?

    There is no authorization for the Committees on Financial Services, Foreign Affairs, Oversight and Reform, and Ways and Means to conduct an investigation. Yet Section 3 of this Resolution authorizes these Committees to transfer investigative materials to the Committee on the Judiciary.

    There is no authorization for the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to conduct an investigation, yet this Resolution authorizes the Committee to “conduct proceedings” to facilitate an existing unauthorized investigation.

    There is no authorization for the Committee on the Judiciary to conduct an investigation, yet this Resolution authorizes the Committee to “conduct proceedings relating to” an existing unauthorized investigation.

    This Resolution authorizes proceedings for an existing investigation which has never been authorized.

    Rather than complain about details Republicans must point out that these hearings are illegitimate.

        If Republicans allow Democrats to set the terms of engagement they become captive, and risk being defeated.

        Republicans must define the engagement. Let the Democrats exhaust themselves with another futile tactic, but do not engage and legitimize their stunt. Instead, point out the illegitimacy of their actions.Their position is hopeless, remind them of it at every opportunity. These hearings are illegitimate and they know it.

      They should get out of the weeds and argue there are no crimes alleged. Foreign policy disputes are settled at the ballot box. If diplomats, civil servants and NSC members disagree with foreign policy decisions made by POTUS they are welcome to resign. They are also free to run for POTUS themselves, otherwise STFU and carry out the policies of the man that was duly elected.

    Ann Coulter has some interesting things to say about the Vindman character:

    “Well, having a Ukrainian-born analyst butt in to ensure U.S. foreign aid flows effortlessly to the country of his birth gives the appearance that he’s concerned about fairness to Ukraine. That’s not what this is supposed to be about. It’s supposed to be about what’s in the best interests of the United States.”

    as well as politicians who fancy themselves foreign policy experts:

    “It would be annoying enough if government officials, whose salaries we pay, spent all their time working on the betterment of other nations, but at least everything turned out GREAT. In fact, however, they’re never right, they always make things worse, and they never pay a price because, again, no one cares.”

      Here is a thread about the distinguished Mr. Lawrence VanDyke. These people at the ABA are mafia. (Please click on it to see all of the analysis of this hearing).
      Please feel free to call them during business hours at the following numbers to let them know about your displeasure- I sure will tomorrow!
      DC Office: 202-662-1000
      Service Center Hotline: 1-800-285-2221
      He also makes the excellent point that the evaluator of the ABA- Marcia Davenport provided materially false statement to Congress- that is a felony. She is guilty also of an ethics violation because she was conflicted out from being the evaluator since she gave a monetary donation to his political opponent in 2014 for the Montana Supreme Court race.

      I told you guys my experience in 2016 before. I had been active in voter outreach in my precinct for almost a decade. Saw official voter lists and records. 2016 was the first year I saw that the age 18-22 group had higher Republican registration than Dem registration. The numbers for Libertarian and unaffiliated creeped up a bit also. It had to be the Trump effect. My state has closed primaries (have to be registered in party to vote in primary) .

    “invited”

    A government employee seeking legal advise from a government attorney in the same department should not have attorney-client privilege.

    “John Eisenberg, National Security Council staff legal adviser, and Michael Ellis have been invited to testify on Nov. 4.

    “Eisenberg is the NSC lawyer who Vindman and Hill reported their concerns to. Ellis is his deputy

    “But after the call, Colonel Vindman went with his brother, a lawyer on the National Security Council staff, to see John A. Eisenberg, the council’s legal adviser, to raise his concerns about the conversation.

    Colonel Vindman declined to detail to investigators his discussions with Mr. Eisenberg, citing attorney-client privilege, according to two of the people familiar with the testimony.”

        whole video was just under 30 minutes in length.

        For me, the fact that Rupert Murdock was saying President Pompeo 2025 brought up images of suspicious cat – anything, anyone he endorses has to have a catch somewhere. But it is a nice speech from Sec. Pompeo mostly speaking on China.

      It’s no secret what their definition is/will be. Just like Bill Clinton said, “it depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is“, and it will change on-the-fly to suit..
