Rep. Ratcliffe on Impeachment Fiasco: “At the end of the day the truth will defend itself”…

Representative John Ratcliffe appeared on Fox News to discuss the latest developments within the one-side, partisan, effort to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Having sat through all of the closed-door basement testimony so far, Ratcliffe outlines how Adam Schiff created the appearance of impropriety through an orchestrated effort with embedded political officials.  “At the end of the day, the truth will defend itself.”

    I’m probably in the minority here but I’m kinda hoping they go through with this (all the way). I for one am tired of this mamby pamby BS America has been playing. Every once in awhile this nation is going to have to go through some very uncomfortable times to shed the dead skin the builds up through soft tyranny. I think this is as good a time as any. Can you imagine if they actually went through with this? Especially with it being such a obvious sham and PTRUMP getting re-elected? Can you imagine if he just refused to leave and they just kept going? That may be the spark America needs to do some needed “shedding”.

        McCarthy rightly found the Roosevelt’s and Truman’s White House FULL of commies. He exposed them. Just like PJT is doing now.

        May God bless McCarthy. The press did to him what is being done today. They killed him.

          @WSB Oh boy, do I ever agree!!!
          >> The late Senator Joe McCarthy was right, and he continues to be right. Because of the circled-wagons, road-blocks and general slander and destruction of McCarthy, “Communists” NEVER left the State Dept, and all of WashingtonDC, instead, they multiplied and inserted themselves deeper and deeper. Granted, it’s not “Russia” who they are aligned with, and I don’t think it was undoubtedly Russia back in McCarthy’s day either – what we had then is the same as what we have now, an overall alignment with POWER that destroys freedom, liberty and justice. A generation ago we called it Communism, today it’s called Globalism, but it’s the same America destroying allegiance as it always was.

          Here’s a snippet from an interesting 20yr old article detailing instances where McCarthy WAS right:
          “…Joe McCarthy was hated and denounced not because he smeared innocent people, but because he identified guilty people. Any list of identified Communists uncovered by McCarthy would have to include Lauchlin Currie, Gustavo Duran, Theodore Geiger, Mary Jane Keeney, Edward Posniak, Haldore Hanson, John Carter Vincent, Owen Lattimore, Edward Rothschild, Irving Peress, and Annie Lee Moss. But that’s not the whole story. McCarthy also exposed scores of others who may not have been identified as Communists, but who certainly were causing harm to national security from their posts in the State Department, the Pentagon, the Army, key defense plants, and the Government Printing Office. At the latter facility, which handled 250,000 pieces of secret and classified printing matter annually, the McCarthy probe resulted in the removal or further investigation by the FBI of 77 employees and a complete revamping of the security system at the GPO…”

          It’s a very long write-up, but a read well worth the time:

      Plus the fact, how many times can they impeach him? They will fail at this because they have nothing on him! This conversation is such weak stuff, but evidently some lame brain thought it would be enough.. just like the Mueller witch hunt.

      Their coup is now evident to all, and let’s face it.. they know it is going nowhere in the Senate, so their only hope is to dirty Trump up enough with the American Public that he won’t win reelection.

      He will win reelection.. I think in a landslide. And they have lost their chance of impeachment for the next 4 years.

      Even if what you are saying does happen……which is what likely will happen……it won’t be over. The club will come up with something else to bring Trump up on. Even after serving 8 years they will continue persecuting the man. There needs to be a way to fight this! Step one is to totally stop the media……unlikely. Massive public opinion and Republican take over of the house, judiciary, and DC…….may happen if this charade continues! But the single most cure would be to see comby, brennan, clapper, stroke, page, and all the players do hard, hard time. I am talking 10-20 years, then they would get the picture. Also a total reorganization and investigation into the fbi, cia, doj etc. etc. A tall order, but something that has to be done!!!

    If Republicans on the Schiff committee believe the proceedings are tainted and unfair, they should not comply. They should refuse to maintain secrecy and broadcast their own transcripts or their own restatements of the testimony. Civil disobedience is acceptable when impropriety is occurring. Don’t be an empty suit, refuse to comply. Refuse to be complicit. Refuse to be muzzled. Speak out, you spineless jellyfish!

    No, Mt. Ratliffe, that is not true.

    Evil (and lies) prevails when good men do nothing. It is true that Truth should not HAVE to defend itself, but that assumes you are dealing with rational people who will agree to a baseline of agreed ideas, norms, and facts.

    But we are not dealing with rational people. We are dealing with people in STRONG DELUSION to believe lies….Their conscience, that part of man that serves most honest seeking men as a guide rail for acceptable conduct, — is seared. To rational honest seeking people with a conscience, it is baffling that people EN MASS could act this way. Sure one or two, here and there, but to see so MANY, A MOB, who are drinking the koolaid with complete uncritical acceptance of such delusional lies is alarming.

    I heard Sidney Powell on the tick tock show today, and she still sounds very optimistic about her case.

    I also watched both of the pressers from the repubs, and dims yesterday that SD provided (Thank you sir). The repubs appeared unified at optimistic, and the speech that Zeldin made was very in line with what I read here at the CTH. Is he a viewer? It was packed with emotion, and it was clear that he is very concerned with the fascist process that the dims are running here.

    There was something really off with nadler and the three dims. It had the appearance that they really werent ready for the softball questions by their MSM allies. They appeared slow witted, beaten, and frazzled. I would go so far as to suggest they were perhaps drug addled and demon possessed.

    The longer this pans out, the more truth about these inquisitions will come forward, and hopefully more of we the people will actually realize whats going on here. The MSM cant cover this up forever.

      NOT ONE —

      I suppose that would be too crass, crude, and un-gentlemanly of them (spit). Perhaps if they wrote another strongly worded letter, or introduced another non-binding resolution “condemning” the COUP plotters’ actions?

    No, it won’t. In fact, you cannot wage this war by stating facts. The Democrats are in a fevered rage spiral. You have to slap them out of it. How do you do this? You must wage a war on emotional turf, while simultaneously waging the logic war behind the scenes.

    In Congress, the GOP should be disruptive, angry, combative, sarcastic, and take every opportunity to cause trouble. They need to bait Democrats. Trump’s people should show up prepared to insult Democrat questioners and talk about Trump’s accomplishments and stuff like USMCA. They should be as dismissive as possible. Trump’s rallies need to fire people up even more, and he needs to go into the districts of vulnerable Dems. Unlike Obama, Trump has proven coattails.

    The logic side? Work on your Senators. Thank and congratulate your House Rep. for hanging tough. Senate Judiciary should subpoena Eric Ciaramella and get to the bottom of his involvement. Make him take the 5th in public. A patriot at the IC IG or DOJ should release the unredacted “whistleblower” report.

    From a commentor at Citizen Free Press named Midnight:
    Interesting scenario:

    On Monday Mr. Jones is called to testify before Adam Schiff’s committee. Since it’s completely held in secrecy and Republicans are threatened to not talk about what goes on the citizenry does not get to hear the testimony.

    Now, on Tuesday the very same Mr. Jones is called to appear before Lindsey Graham’s Senate committee hearings who can ask him the very same questions, Under oath, on live television there by short circuiting all of shift efforts to keep everything secret. This could be repeated for each and everyone of the witnesses that shift calls, one by one they appear in front of the Senate committee Under oath on live television.

    Pretty sure that that would stop the constant leaking by Adam shift and I would also serve notice to the witnesses to be careful of making up stories.

    Of course one obvious thing that’s missing here is Lindsey Graham’s hearings, since he has not followed through on any of his promises. But wouldn’t this be a very very simple way to undo what shift and Pelosi are attempting?
