    I’m beginning to think the Democrats won’t even hold an impeachment vote. Lindsey Graham has now gone on the record, fake whistleblower will need to testify and there will be no hearsay evidence. There ya go, Dems, do you really want to proceed with this mess? The Christine Blasey scheme worked out so well for you. lol

      Graham’s views are “subject to change”. Never trust nobody. Remember..we are talking about someone who has done absolutely nothing concrete to assist the president in this scam. I will say though..he impressed me in the Kavanaugh hearing, so the potential is there.

        Make no mistake, Graham has organic and internal motivation to squelch any senatorial process that may expose the financial transactions that he and McStain enjoyed in the Ukraine, I refer to the pictures Sundance published that show honorary medal around the Sheepish appearing Graham while having a frequent visit to Ukraine.

        Smells like some sort of USA gives and Graham received a turn around gratuity for the efforts.

          This reminds me of Graham….him being the devil of course….

          God and the Devil were walking together when God picked up a piece of paper. “What does it say?” the devil inquired. “Truth,” said God serenely.

          “Give it to me,” said the devil eagerly, ”I’ll organize it for you.”

        Lindsey Graham said there would be no Senate trial without the whistleleaker’s testimony but then the Romney Faction obviously met with McConnell in a basement meeting room yesterday and Mitch emerged saying there WILL be a trial.

        One day Lindsey tries to be the President, mouthing off on foreign policy, the next day he pretends to be the leader of the Senate–must depend on the message of the day he gets while communicating with McCain’s spirit. When both those efforts fail, he plays a round of golf with our President, then runs over to Fox News for an evening of marshmallows and interviews.

        Besides the war Dem’s have waged on our country via this lawless, anti-American impeachment exercise because The Swamp is threatened, there are two other motives at play:

        1. Ruth Bader Ginsburg will very likely be unable to fulfill her obligations on the High Court much longer. Having our POTUS embroiled in an impeachment trial with Mitch’s blessing and possible removal looming, would ensure the Senate would not confirm a new SCOTUS appointee.

        2. Barr and Durham/President Trump’s fistful of aces, ready and waiting to be laid on the table. The Deep State’s past is about to catch up with them and the net that is cast will trap big dogs all over America’s Cesspool, aka, Washington, DC. BHO may regret that decision to set up his Shadow Oval Office as he watches his minions ensnared one by one and the wolves get closer to his door.

        The stakes get higher everyday. Nancy’s House of Horrors and their media com padres are on high alert. Put nothing last them.

            Seems to me the GOP is a lot more worried about staying on the good side of the media and the status quo within Washington cocktail party circuits than they are about political demise. Some of us out here in the real world that actually go to work everyday and keep the wheels turning would argue that way too many elected GOP’ers are happily engaged in party demise as evidenced by lack of outrage over this Schiff Show.

            Aside from the very few such as Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, et al, how many Republicans have been bold and on the attack over what Dem’s are doing to our country?

            McConnell and his ilk love the John Roberts’ types on the bench. When the going gets tough, they often cave to the Left and life goes back to a nice, non-confrontational normal.

              “The Bow Ties don’t much like President Trump and his America First foreign policy.

              It runs counter to everything they have done and invested in for many decades. His new policies disturb their globalist worldview, mindset, secular values, career-paths, and of course, their clients.

              For that reason, they will do anything to try and stop him.

              If that means impeachment all the better.”

    They will not keep Spygate under wraps. Can’t wait to see how far Barr will go

    It is now known that President Barack Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan created a Trump Task Force in early 2016. Rather than working against genuine foreign threats, this Task Force played a critical role in creating and feeding the meme that Donald Trump was a tool of the Russians and a puppet of President Vladimir Putin, a claim that still surfaces regularly to this day. Working with James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, Brennan fabricated the narrative that “Russia had interfered in the 2016 election.” Brennan and Clapper promoted that tale even though they knew very well that Russia and the United States have carried out a broad array of covert actions against each other, including information operations, for the past seventy years, but they pretended that what happened in 2016 was qualitatively and substantively different even though the “evidence” produced to support that claim was and still is weak to nonexistent.

      Unz Review’s Philip Girardi also visited this nasty little item at some length: http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/john-brennans-cia-trump-task-force/

      What’s been kinda hovering in the background for some while now, kept fresh by podcasters and other commentators on the right – Dan Bongino for one has been harping on this stuff since the beginning of the Trump Admin. with his Spygate material culminating in his two books; and John Solomon probably has all of this story in his back pocket as well – is finally starting to see the light of day. It’s really pretty gratifying, even while it’s also horrifying when you consider the implications.

      I for one have been very impatient to see all this story make its way into the open light of day, where everyone has to confront and deal with it. Given how we see the Dems unrolling their own impeachment idiocy in order to make inroads for 2020, I can’t help but wonder if Spygate/Obamagate is being slow-walked for a similar, political purpose …

      Think about it! The impeachment inquiry is NOT about actually convicting and removing President Trump- it’s strictly propaganda to help Democratic campaigns- accusing President Trump of a “coverup”. If the Republican senators dismissed the charges immediately, that would be playing into the hands of the Democrat propagandists. Instead, they threaten a REAL trial, with actual witnesses called to testify. THAT would make the DEMOCRATS the ones looking bad on TV.

          Also, the Republicans don’t really want to be the majority. It’s too much work and too much responsibility. They much prefer to be the minority, where they can put up token rhetorical resistance but in the end ultimately cave and go along, while claiming that “Hey, we’re only the minority, not much we can do.”
          It’s easy to see how they would sacrifice a handful of Senators in order to accomplish their mission and go back to the way things were. Mitch can arrange matters so that he will be able to claim that the majority of Senators opposed it, it’s just those few over there that voted for it. But hey, done deal, handle the fallout later.

She’s falling apart, cannot do her job any longer, and this is a real problem for anyone arguing cases because it’s likely SHE is not making her decision but her handlers are.

      RBG is dying. The SC does not have oral arguments again until Monday, December 2, which will be almost 3 weeks since she last attended oral arguments (earlier this week). Watch for news to break about her failing health as this date approaches. She needed to hang on long enough to get the calendar flipped into the year (365 days) prior to an election (which is why she HAD to attend at least one day of oral arguments this week). That being accomplished, along with the impeachment Schiff show currently under way, will allow the left the demand that her seat be held open until after the 2020 election.

      India workers have taken over IT and other descent paying jobs. Well, they didn’t take it over, it was given to them by are elected officials. I got out in 2017 ( I retired from Fed job in 2015. A year later I went to work as an IT Level 3 support person for a global company. I was being paid about 100k/year. Level 3 techs are now lucky to get $75K/yr. That’s because Praheet and his buddys will work for less. Companies save about 15% when hiring H1Bs like Praheet.

      Keep in mind I saw this coming because I worked with and on troubles with Praheet. Praheet is no better than Americans at IT, but for some reason they are touted as genius’s. A lot of them lie about there background and qualifications then use chat rooms with other Praheet’s to get a problem solved

    Don’t worry about reality. The left and their handlers the MSM will construct a false narrative out of whole cloth. We must keep in mind their idiot constituency, where blithering is a normal state of affairs. Who will dutifully regurgitate the swamp gas like the trained seals that they are. This is what they do.

    The good news. The first day of the Schiff Show was so utterly absurd and vacuous of anything related to facts or direct witness testimony only the Obama-phone dullards will buy into the con. Oh, and devout swamp rats (Uniparty) will push the con as if their continued graft depends on it, because it does.

    Meanwhile our Great President Trump soldiers on Making America Great Again exposing the Deep State with every job he creates. It’s a wonderful time to be alive and see revealed what we always knew, the swamp is corrupt to it’s core. Their only concern is “what’s in it for me”. How the hell do we keep Jr. his job at Brooking’s, and Sally is finally out of the house and making real coin with the Tobacco lobbying firm on K-Street, if the Orange Man keeps the White House, they might be back home in the basement. Just look at what they’re doing to poor Hunter Biden. He’ll soon be back on the crack-pipe if this keeps up.

    What we are witnessing is a Deep State Hail Mary and a feeble attempt to head Barr/Durham off at the pass. What did our Great President Trump tell us: “sit back and enjoy the ride.” He’s got this.

    • Just saw “judge” Napolitano and – just like every other democrat talking about this farce – he starts right off with the notion that the president was asking for a “political opponent” to be investigated, which is what they view as their hook to drag what the President did into a corrupt or self-serving motive.

      Their logic leads to the notion that persons running for office are exempt from investigation and ascribes a false motive to the President.

      The President was fully within his purview of overseeing and directing federal investigations in that call and the surrounding events and was – in fact – was doing his duty as Chief Executive……ESPECIALLY with the abundance of evidence already in the public domain long before President Trump began dealing with the Ukraine.

      The notion that the President had any personal or political motive for doing what he did should be shot down the second these left wing idiots mention it, because that lie is what they’re hanging their hat on.

        It’s a legit. concern and that’s why FACTS need to be introduced. It’s too bad the Dems refuse to allow that.

        Secondly, if Trump can’t ask for Biden’s corruption as VP to be investigated because it’s one political opponent against another, how can the Dems justify their impeachment investigation when there are no Republicans on board? Isn’t it also a case of one political opponent against another?

        So even the supposed “hook” can be countered. As usual, the Dems accuse others of exactly what they themselves are guilty of.

        • They desperately want to portray someone who practiced extortion and obstruction of justice, to benefit his son and himself, as “a political opponent.”

          Never mind that PDJT himself was, prior to 2016, “a political opponent” himself, and these same people thought nothing of engaging dozens of foreign countries in a concerted effort to prevent his election. Oh, no. Nothing wrong with that!

          Well, we have a treaty with Ukraine which obligates both countries to pursue corruption … and guess who and what that means? (As if the Ukranian “drain our swamp” President needs that motivation …)

Just an anonymous, digital report on anyone, and they are investigated without their knowledge, possible removal of any firearms,until you prove you are not a threat etc. this is, IMO, how it goes down.

That is until they get their talking points today. I expect to see things start to creep in that are just MSM/Swamp talking points. The only thing I saw? That Trump should fire Rudy to draw attention to that instead of the hearings. Like meeting with Turkey’s Erdogan wasn’t enough.

    2009 – 2012 – Hammer Program to gather information

    2012 – Benghazi, Libya – Arming Syrian Rebels

    2016 – Russia Collusion & Obstruction frame job begins

    2019 – Ukraine Frame job begins

    2019 – Impeachment begins

    IMO every move is connected and has a purpose.

    It all screams Power, Leverage, Money and Control. Much of the focus seems to be on controlling/influencing countries who have vast amounts of oil and LNG energy.

    Think about if you controlled just Libya, Syria, Turkey and Ukraine, you would control HUGE amounts of oil and LNG and a major pipeline. Billions if not trillions over time IMO.

    Can you imagine via the leverage gathered and these coups just how much money could be involved?

    After all, to create a NWO and fund the entire DS you have to have a HUGE income stream.

    I think we may just now be seeing where the income stream may have suppose to been coming from.

    I wonder just how many Americans have had their hands in this cookie jar?

    It was all there for the taking until President Trump showed up. They truly can’t afford him for 4 more years.

    It helps to put it all down in a chronological order. Americans are beginning to see the bigger picture IMO.

    Lindsey, PT and AG Barr have an opportunity to expose it ALL. The question is will they?

    I’d sure enjoy seeing one massive thread by Sundance that puts all of this together in one place.
