    Interesting videoclip of Paul Gosar about his sequence of tweets on the impeachment farce, plus a reference to Epstein.

      The two are implicitly connected: Epstein and Trump’s impeachment.
      Epstein had to disappear: not only in body, but, from everybody’s minds forever- (well, until it becomes a conspiracy theory). The burying of body and all evidence is imperative; according to the dog and pony show authors in the deep state.
      Trump’s impeachment: the biggest worldwide scandal, crimes, and treason ever committed; according to the dog and pony show authors in the deep state ………..low and behold Epstein and his cavalcade are out of the MSM, protected once again.

      • Anyone who did to little girls what Epstein did … deserves to be dead, and everybody in that prison knew it. Someone, or someones, was all too happy to oblige. Maybe Epstein took a ride on the Orient Express … I frankly don’t give a damn who did it, as long as it got done.

        This case is still open and will remain so. If you were a co-conspirator (are you listening, Bill?) you should not rest easy at night. He left mountains of evidence, this being the tools of his blackmail trade, and we know that much of it is false. (Yes, we know about Photoshop.®) But, much of it is true. If you, too abused young women, Justice is coming for you.

            I find it odd that we heavily joked about his impending death as soon as he was arrested and his death has heavily remained a joke to this day. The plotters started to attenuate the crime even before it happened, moving it from a crime of note to a point of cultural humor.

            But cheer up! The FBI’s taken over the investigation and it’s right in that Things-to-Do basket with Judge Crater, Judge Chillingsworth, Jimmy Hoffa…

            It’s not just odd.

              Hey, I agree with 99% of Mike Robinson’s posts. In fact, he is one of the few posters who I search out and always stop and read.

              Mike Robinson made his point, and it is a defendable viewpoint on this topic and I wouldn’t entirely disagree with him. I just find it odd (and there are others here who have made the same observation) that he keeps bringing up this viewpoint at every opportunity. I make no accusations. No insinuations. I do wonder what secrets went to the grave with Epstein. We’ll never know. Epstein’s victims may also disagree with Mike.

              BTW, I’ve been posting here as long or longer than you or Mike Robinson, for what it’s worth. Cheers.

          That is exactly correct…they did think that the President was just another “money grabbing phony politician.”
          And…this is the simple but critical mistake they have been making his entire Presidency.

          Another big mistake they are making is judging him by “What they would do”….

          For example:

          They stated they had a “whistle blower”….thinking that then it would turn into a war of words against the “whistle blower”, the MSM, and the President…..and he would be judged guilty….But…..

          “He released the transcripts of the entire call”
          How many Presidents have ever released something that has “Executive Privilege?”

        I’ve come to the conclusion that the Dems just aren’t very intelligent. 🙂 This latest coup attempt is the weakest and most ludicrous. The Senate is never going to remove Trump from office. Never. The entire premise is laughable. Worse, the timing! The Dems are engaging in this stunt at the worst possible time for themselves. As pointed out yesterday, if the House votes to impeach and the Senate decides to hold a trial, the trial will begin in the early part of next year while several of the Senator candidates are trying to campaign. They’re going to kill Warren’s campaign in particular, she’ll need to be present for the trial, likewise Sanders. And the inevitable failure of the coup attempt, occurring during the primaries, will cause the Dems to lose votes.

        Wait and see whether Pelosi and Schiff are stupid enough to hold an impeachment vote. I’m beginning to think they aren’t going to do it. They’re barking a lot now, wait and see if they bite.

          There’s a timeline here, the 2020 elections. We’re concentrating on the presidential election but tons of Rat-supporting work and money are going into the Congressional elections. While we’re distracted at the national level the Rats are frantically working at the Federal district levels to increase their hold on the House and at the state level to hold what they have in the Senate get that one or two blue Senator flip they need.

          As soon as the Rats get a majority in both houses I think we’re going to see a move to push for Puerto Rican statehood to give the Rats a goodly number of newHouse members and definately two more Rat Senators. They’re pushing for a majority that will go a long way to making a conservative POTUS, if one even ever gets elected again, a moot position. The impeachment is one thing but we shouldn’t get distracted to the exclusion of what else these Leftist turds have going on in the back room.

        Trump is a genius, but let’s look at a couple little issues that have put him where he is.
        He gave to democrats, buddies with all kinds of political figures, has ties with democrats. It gave him opportunity to slip in. The spying, I have no doubt, occurs with all candidates to protect the swamp. Trump made it in with hopes he could do their work and a plan if he didn’t. Which also implicates republicans in power by allowing any of this. And I do say allow.

          The impeachment works a number of ways, at least, for the Swamp Rats

          One: it keeps a solid wall of negativity up effecting how that gray area Trump needs to win may feel, not so much about him personally but the endless aura of sturm und drang the plotters have built around him. They have enough in their lives to deal with, they don’t want or need the political battle in their faces 24/7, most want quiet and disconnected leadership.

          Two: it dilutes the information oozing out on the plotters plotting, the questionable and downright illegal activities they’ve engaged and continue to engage in. It also delays any charges being brought against them and puts the window of any potential prosecution into a time when the Swamp Rats may well be in charge.

          Three: it keeps the MSM fully stocked with unsubstantiated bites of derogatory misinformation they try to sanitize through their various outlets. Innuendo becomes fact, creative fiction becomes reality. It’s a Fox reality program made real. There is a lot of those gray area voters who are effected by this endless drone of political theater and polls are being watched on a daily basis to fine-tune the process and sway potential pro-Trump voters to either vote Rat or just not vote – one’s as good as the other.

          The Swamp Creatures aren’t stupid, they have a plan, money and organization.

      On the “professional” Executive Branch employee front, Obama broke his firing freeze promise to President Elect Trump, to seed the executive with “Executive Branch Professionals” people with clearances. The appointees, like the Ambassador, testifying are the door opener for the moles to come forward to embellish the attack.

      Then as stated before, nearly 2/3 to 3/4 of the 2.5 million non-military “professional” in the executive branch were hired by Obama and Bill Clinton. That is a potential pool of nearly 1 million moles waiting to be activated who are protected by Federal Regulations from being summarily fired and/or reassigned without cause.

        Of equal shame though is the role of your MSM , especially CNN, who seem to the point of the spear when it comes to degrading and ruining Donald Trump.

        They are NOT a news channel. They are a PROPAGANDA channel. They should be taken off air . Someone should remove their franchise to operate or as a minimum fine them or their parent BILLIONS of dollars.

    FTA – According to Axios, Wednesday’s lackluster impeachment hearing drew just 13 million viewers. The number pales in comparison to those who viewed former FBI Director James Comey’s June 2017 testimony and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s September 2018 hearing, which saw 19.5 million viewers and 20 million viewers, respectively.

    Of the cable news networks, Fox News led the pack with 2.9 million viewers between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. EST, followed by MSNBC with 2.7 million, per Axios. CNN fell over one million viewers behind Fox News, attracting 1.8 million viewers. ABC edged out CBS, but both drew around two million viewers, followed by NBC with 1.7 viewers.

    Observations from a smaller limb.

    Mortgage Bankers Association Report for the 3rd quarter.

    Mortgage delinquency rates reached a 25 year low. Current delinquency rates on 1 to 4 unit residential properties now stands at 3.97%. 🏆 Additionally foreclosure rates are down to 0.84%. The lowest since the fourth quarter of 1985! 🏆

    Delinquency rates:
    30 day : 2.20%
    60 day: 0.75%
    90 day: 1.02%

    Delinquency by loan type.
    Conventional: 3.0%
    FHA : 8.2%
    VA: 3.93%

    Alabama -.81% West Virginia -.78% Mississippi -.73% show the largest drop in delinquency rates following a bad run of weather in the second quarter. I’m glad they are improving after the trouble they had earlier in the year.

    Anyone remember the sky is falling because of consumer and mortgage debt earlier this year. I responded in May with a detailed post including all types of debt and how things were improving at the time. Furthermore projected additional improvement as 2019 moved along.

    Well here it is. Enjoy.

      I imagine many of the Senators had some urgent personal matters to attend to like destroying any evidence that ties them to bribery and sedition. They also may need the time to move some of their ill gotten gains out of government reach. Others may just need the time to shake down their donors for more money. All in the day of the life of a U.S. Senator.

    So a thought just occurred to me as to why McConnell is wanting to actually hold a trial in the Senate and it’s the only thing that makes sense:

    We’ve all been looking at this wrong. We’ve all been looking at this from the perspective of what’s fair, what’s best for the Republicans, what’s legal, etc. What we haven’t done is look at it through the lens of “what’s Uniparty”.

    Everyone has made the observation that holding a 6-8 week trial pulls Dem Senators campaigning off the trail. What we haven’t considered is who those Senators are and for the purposes of this comment, only 2 of them matter because the others are so far behind it won’t matter. Those two are: Warren and Sanders.

    Depending on what poll you read, they are running either 1st and 3rd or 2nd and 3rd. Yesterday I saw an article that Warren and Sanders are the two that benefit most as others drop out. Combine that with the fact that there have already been multiple articles written about how if Warren or Sanders are the nominee than the Wall Street donors are either going to sit 2020 out or go all in for president Trump. It’s also a given that with a Senate Trial, what will emerge about Biden will be the death knell of his campaign.

    So what is the ultimate purpose of a Senate Trial?

    To clear the field for 6-8 weeks to allow Mike Bloomburg to get his campaign in gear, gain traction and become the new front runner that the Uniparty/CoC/Wall Street triumvirate all want…and need.

In short, with this scenario they don’t need the far left of their base within the nomination process, only for Nov. 2020.

    What is hard is that with each new allegation the others haven’t died in the minds of the brainwashed left. Unfortunately there are also plenty in America that don’t hate Trump who still think something isn’t quite right with Trump and his interactions. They keep hearing things like “Where there is smoke, there is fire.” from their friends/family on the left.

    Every time I see someone make a subtle, or not so subtle dig about Trump’s Russia connection, I say the Mueller report debunked that and wasn’t it Obama that said to Russian officials ““This is my last election … After my election I have more flexibility,” Sounds like Obama was pretty damn cozy with Russia.

    I was reading Peggy Noonan’s Wall Street Journal column on the Wednesday hearings, and Peggy was so impressed by the witnesses, Bill Taylor and George Kent. They had modesty, integrity, capability. On and on she went: they keep it all up and running, they were old school, it was old America reasserting itself.

    And it struck me like a thunderbolt: Peggy was impressed because they’re white men. White men of the right sort. Peggy’s column was intensely racist and sexist, but she so lacks self-awareness, she can’t see it. She would be partly aware that her snobbery hinges on education; the Ruling Class obsesses on education as a final gate that must not be breached.

    For Peggy Noonan, the idea that our true rulers should be white men with Ivy League educations is so self-evident, she’s actually proud of herself. It’s the Ruling Class’s version of apple pie and motherhood.

    The Ruling Class will allow minorities and women to hold elected political positions: those roles are highly visible, and thwarting them would bring down the wrath of the hoi polloi. The solution, arrived at long ago, is to create a Deep State, manned mostly by white men of the right sort. A few white women and minorities will be allowed token roles, but they must be like Caesar’s wife, above reproach or suspicion. Behold, Marie Yovanovitch.

    It sadly occurs to me that this trench has been dug throughout our society. The NFL and its lapdog sports media has made a great fuss over the first black coaches and the first black quarterbacks, but where are the minority owners? Checking Wikipedia, I see a Pakistani owner in Jacksonville, and the owner in Buffalo has made his Korean wife his effective partner. No blacks.

    If the skin color of Trump’s leading nemeses became an issue, their defeat would be hastened. Who on earth is whiter than Adam Schiff?

      I have to return to that astounding phrase from Peggy: old America reasserting itself. It sounds like something George Wallace or David Duke would say. It certainly fits the textbook definition of Reactionary, although Peggy would no doubt disagree.

      The Democrat Party establishment is having a hard time fighting the leftward shift of their Party. Bigger government does benefit the rich and powerful, wealth redistribution does not. Nominating reliable, elderly hacks like Hillary or Biden can only plug the hole in their dike for so long.

      The reactionary impulse to oppose all change is one result. The Uniparty is fighting Trump in order to indirectly fight Liz Warren and Ilhan Omar. A rich white man like Trump supplies a more acceptable and convenient target for the reactionary establishment.

      Many have observed the similarities between the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street, including, I was shocked to hear, Paul Ryan. The populist who closes that circle will truly be a threat to the Uniparty. And Peggy Noonan’s old America will face its greatest challenge.

          In the long run, the Deep State can only be a threat to our democracy. Never mind the long run, the threat is manifesting now. Therefore, these wonderful people that Peggy admires so much, can only be our enemy.

    Tlaib frantically asked campaign for personal money, messages show, as ethics probes announced

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/house-ethics-committee-announces-probe-into-dem-reps-tlaib-hastings.amp?__twitter_impression=true

    The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses — and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process.

    The document dump was related to the committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Additionally, the Ethics Committee acknowledged for the first time on Thursday an investigation into Florida Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings concerning a “personal relationship with an individual employed in his congressional office.”

    Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.
    ~
    Meanwhile, the Ethics Committee also said it was looking into an alleged relationship between Hastings and a staffer, and whether Hastings “has received any improper gifts, including any forbearance, from that employee.”

    Here’s the thing. If Barr determines that there was in fact a deep state cabal or coups trying to prevent the election and subsequently undermine and conspire to thwart or hinder the actions of the U.S. government under the Trump administration…. then there is no way Barr can not link the Mueller investigation as a continuation of that effort… and there is no way that Barr can not link the latest impeachment scam as a furtherance of that effort.

    But It’s a lot to prove imo… too much resistance and too many conspirators. Politics has in fact been weaponized because there is way too much money and power at stake. Trump sending Rudy all over eastern europe did not help matters and I an sure that Barr let Trump know it. It’s time Trump started acting presidential and let Barr do his job… and hopefully Rudy won’t bring him down. But rest assure that going after Rudy on campaign finance violations and having Weismann on tv saying as much could be the opening the dems needed. And could be bad news for Flynn and Sydney… and any hopes that bad folks would be brought to justice.

    The Louisiana election will be very telling. No surprise that Trump is putting all his card on the table. A loss will all but guarantee a trial in the Senate and could mark the beginning of the end of the Trump phenomena. All eyes are watching.

The ARMINFO News Agency reported,

      “[An] Ambassador serves his president and may be recalled anytime and for any reason,” newly appointed U.S. Ambassador to Armenia Marie L. Yovanovitch said in response to [an] ArmInfo question [as to whether] her personal stand on [the] Armenian Genocide will allow her further [to] work at the US Department of State if the new leadership of the White House recognizes Genocide.

      “The decision to recall [an] Ambassador fully depends on the president,” the American diplomat said avoiding a direct answer to the question. To recall, the former Ambassador John Evans was recalled from Armenia in 2006 for his statements on recognition of [the] Armenian Genocide.”

    Hospitals charge patients who pay themselves, in cash (such as the Amish) a MULTIPLE of what they pay insurance companies. They sue people for the exorbitant mount. This is truly evil.

    The old Robinson Patman Antitrust Act requires that sellers of products charge people the same prices (its more complicated, and ignored now). There should be a Robinson-Patman Act for hospital medical services. It should be criminal, and subject to treble civil damages, for a hospital to charge anyone paying or guaranteeing hospital services, more than they charge any insurance company.
