      i pay attention to ties.. noticed many months ago that Jim Jordan had a very impressive tie on & suspect that it was a gift from Pres. Trump.. kind of a coppery yellowy tone.. it just stands out in a great way.. have seen it on him a few times since then.. hope that it was a gift from Pres. Trump.. would not surprise me.. (coppery, sort of orangey-pinky-yellowish).. it looks very high quality & nice/wide…a most suitable gift (if it was) to a high quality man

        close to the ending of yesterday’s “hearing” after Nunes finished talking.. he shot Jordan a look.. can barely see Jim but you can see his eyes looking back.. looked to me like a mix of frustration, anger & from what i could tell, a twinge of fear.. course fear can be a very motivating thing.. in this case, i think FIGHT not flight.. Devin can’t even look at the Schiff-disturber beside him & kinda wish Jordan would just snap his bug-eyed head right off.. maybe just a quick head lock, that should do the trick

        Yes, IF it is true then it would clearly be insubordination and would cast into question every word he has testified to thus far…BUT, we can’t sink to the level of the other side and throw out allegations based on hearsay or second hand information because then we lose our ability to call them out on it! I have friends on BOTH ends of the political spectrum who post things online that are blatantly untrue and easily refuted and they just end up looking unreliable. IF someone who was actually at this meeting comes forward and corroborates this story then it needs to be made public by the Republican leadership ASAP but until then, we need to be very careful about spreading rumors, no matter how much we want them to be true! Just my two cents worth…

    Like most of you, I give the Dem machinations and consequential sequelae a lot of thought. After watching Chris Wallace yesterday, it occurred to me that it ‘s highly likely FOX pushed Catherine Herridge OUT. Remember when she described the latest drama as seeming “like a rollout” the day it broke? And then FOX trotted out snarkette Gillian Turner, so she could polish her fake speech impediment. Considering the underwhelming effect of the hearing yesterday, the media is sensing the beginning of a tailspin into the abyss. I will enjoy watching the implosion when VSGPDJT serves up what’s coming. But I miss Catherine.

              Murdoch bought our county’s only television station for his 26 year old daughter’s wedding present when she married her new pakistani husband.

              It was dreadful.

              The newspaper was also bought out around that same time and the new bosses installed liberals from back east, who promptly went to work in tandem with the new tv bosses to make sure our long time agricultural community understood who the “knowers” and “deciders” now would be, and things went badly downhill for conservatives after that. We were fair game and it was open season.
              But they loved them some MS13 and illegals. Those folks prospered under the new deal, and the conservatives were run out of town.

                  Murdoch is not a conservative, he’s an opportunist and a shrewd businessman. He saw a market and exploited it, nothing more, nothing less. His sons are more idealistic and seem hell bent on ruining the family empire, or at least part of it.

                  They clearly didn’t inherit their father’s business acumen. They also have no appreciation for what daddy built because it was handed to them. Happens all the time in rich families. I think that’s why POTUS made his children clean hotel rooms, now golf courses, etc. Much the way his father made him work construction sites.

      Being a potential presidential candidate DOES NOT exempt one from being investigated when there is prima evidence in plain sight to do so. . . . ESPECIALLY when one is using the trappings of elected US national office to do so.

      “Judge” Napolitano has forgone any semblance of rationality or the legal expertise he supposedly brings to help frame the President. He might as well go join the other pseudo-expert idiot, Jeff Toobin on CNN.

    Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) tore into Adam Schiff’s top witnesses on Wednesday.

    Rep. Ratcliffe, a former US Attorney from Texas, destroyed the Democrats’ pre-auditioned star witnesses.

    At one point Ratcliffe asked Ambassador and George Kent to name the crime that President Trump committed on his call with President Zelensky?
    Rep Ratcliffe: So in this impeachment hearing today where we impeach presidents for treason or bribery or other high crimes, where is the impeachable offense in that call? Are either of you here today to assert there was an impeachable offense in that call?

    I believe I read a posting on this site that the raid on al-Baghdadi’s Syrian compound netted direct communications between him and the U.S. State Department. This would make those collaborators in the U.S. State Department traitors in time of war, in collaboration with the barbaric leader of ISIS, the most hunted man in the world.

    Those traitorous U.S. government employees should be immediately arrested and summarily shot.

    We have WAAAAAY too many traitors in the U.S. government. These are Americans who were assisting the most barbaric and murderous terrorist in the world….a leader who burned people alive, threw homosexuals off buildings, raped women, drowned people in cages and beheaded innocents. al-Baghdadi was the leader of this pure evil band of subhuman savages and was personally responsible for the mass murders of hundreds of thousands and the refugee displacement of millions.

    Thank God the President made sure not to inform the Democrats in advance of the raid.

    Moon of Alabama is actually a fairly informative blog, whose host would be considered (Left) centrist in regards to American politics. Though he’s come under fire recently for posting articles which are seemingly pro Trump. Think new Kunstler and Matte.

    It’s populated by a ton of Marxists, which can be straight scary. But the discourse is more balanced than one might expect. It’s not straight anti-Trump. I find it’s a good site to observe anti-imperialism thought, and is more focused on global events than American politics. It’s worth a peek, IMO.

    Another take on McConnell’s tactics, this from the left (Vanity Fair):

    while Republicans have so far floundered on their response to impeachment, they reportedly may see one way to use the Ukraine saga to their advantage: by engineering the Senate trial to screw over their Democratic colleagues running for president. The Washington Post reported Wednesday that some Senate Republicans and advisers are having “closely held” discussions about the possibility of holding a lengthy Senate trial that kicks off in January in order “to scramble the Democratic presidential race.” With the Iowa caucuses launching the presidential primary season on February 3, the trial could keep the six Democratic senators running for president, including high-polling candidates Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders, off the campaign trail during the crucial run-up to Iowa—and potentially into the primary season. “That might be a strategy,” Sen. Ron Johnson told the Post with a “coy smile” when asked about the reported plan. “But I’ll leave that up to others. I’m just a lowly worker.” […]

    Think about it. This widely-publicized trial will start just when the Democrats are at each other’s throats trying to win their party nomination. 🙂 For Sanders and Warren it will be particularly difficult to participate in the impeachment trial AND campaign at the same time. The longer the trial the worse it is for the Dems.

    One possible wrench, those disgusting traitors Romney, Collins, and Murkowski. The Senate needs to approve the impeachment trial rules with 51 votes. The current breakdown is 53R 47D. If these 3 traitors switch to the other side it will be 50-50. So one of them had better toe the party line. I’m so sick of RINOs.

    Sen. Rand Paul says he intends to introduce a motion to dismiss the trial “as soon as we possibly can.” “The sooner we’re done with this, the better,” Paul told the Post.

    • Thanks, you just helped me realize what Plan ‘B’ is. Plan ‘A’ was to have 15 running on Bernie’s platform to keep him from winning the nomination and have a guy with an IQ of 65 an easy path to the Demonrat nomination (Biden).

      A few weeks ago the Uniparty realized that Biden was not going to win the nomination, and that it was going to be either Warren or Bernie. The Uniparty cannot afford to have either of those two win.

      If the Senate trial goes on for weeks, both Warren and Bernie are stuck in the Senate and not on the campaign trail.

      Enter Bloomberg (no chance) and Deval Patrick (chosen one?). The only difference between Mittens and Deval “Romney” Patrick is their skin color. He is perfect Uniparty material. I though it would be Holder, but Patrick is almost the same guy and is not involved with the Obama corruption that is likely to come out eventually.

      Thus, Plan ‘B’ is a long trial in the Senate to hurt Warren and Bernie and to boost Mittens Patrick. Man, the Uniparty is EVIL!
