      I am very very very very disappointed in Jay’s strategy. His side should be doing video clip after video clip shredding the Dems case. He is droning on reading from his notebook. Wtf! He has not learned from Schiff. SHOW THE TESTIMONY OF THE HOUSE WITNESSES!!! STOP READING THE TESTIMONY OF THE HOUSE WITNESSES!

        Are you kidding me?

        Tactics……

        It’s Saturday (“Death Valley of TV” says Trump)….the weekend……

        get the Senators who have been stuck in the well to the bar early.
        (even earlier than promised)

        Only took Trump’s lawyers TWO HOURS to completely destroy every angle of 24 HOURS of repetitious horsesh!t …..
        and more.

        Underpromise and Overdeliver

        Brilliant!
        And those Senators will now be bright eyed and bushy-tailed for a full day Monday.

          Krash,
          Good point. Thanks for talking to me off the wall. The senators are a bunch of alcoholics so I hear you. Plus Jay can get feedback and make 1st quarter adjustments. I just would have run an hour montage of “impeach 45” clips to entertain and lay down the real motivation. CNN have sad faces. They are basically saying that the president has very competent lawyers. They will not lose unless they fall on their faces. They will not fall on their faces. So CNN thinks it’s over.

            especially when you start it all off with Schiff’s stand up routine–Adam’s dramatic reading of a phone transcript he ‘declassified’ from his own a$$.
            Set just the perfect tone.
            HILARIOUS!!

            Beginning with Adam Schiffty fantasy recounting of the call was genius! Thing dragged a bit but the truth is these Senators are used to listening to a speaker during hearings and not focusing on screens back and forth. They KNOW that. All those video and slides may seem flashy but I find them a distraction. Also, this slow beginning will cause the Dems to underestimate the finale! Day one Rebuttal was awesome!!

        Cboldt: I am confounded by the Dims’ confidence in this sham. They carry on as though we do not know, & have not known for at least two years, what has/is really going on. I have heard of “willful ignorance”, & I have heard about how severely TDS affects one’s ability to perceive reality. But, holy smokes, they are so far gone it’s, well, insane. So I worry that their confidence is not a result of insanity but, instead, the very certain knowledge that they can say & do anything and none of them will be held accountable for destroying our Republic. The hounds must be released in full force. This is our best opportunity yet to bring them all down at once. Some here have floated the possibility that that is what is meant to happen. But one must also wonder where our confidence comes from given the Republicons, RINOS, & Never Trumpers we have securely nestled within our ranks.

        This could be epic, which is what many of us have been waiting over 2 years for. We should be able to tell early on. 🤞

          I got an eye-opener when Cubanadian Cruz went on about he was a natural born US citizen, contrary to the holding of Rogers v. Bellei, a 1970’s case that 9-0 found a boy born in Italy to an Italian father and US mother was a –naturalized– US citizen.
          Mark Levin played all manner of “mind games” to find the case stood for the opposite of what it says. People are generally “not reasonable” when their ox is being gored.
          Same sort of “lost thie mind” thing going on, but larger scale. Trillions of dollars and millions of livlihoods based on the current order are at stake. Reason is long gone.
          I see this sort of thing and understand why universal suffrage is a –certain– death sentence for personal liberty.

            Hold that thought and pass it on. The totalitarians will do anything to bring down a remarkable set of works — The Articles of Confederation and the U.S. Constitution — that differentiated this nation from all others.

            Democracy is merely mob rule — 50% of the votes plus one. Lots of ways to effect that end, and democracy alone does not construct a country respectiful of individual rights much less the rule of law. Just ask the many, many peoples who have been sucked into that propaganda, most of whom are fighting for their lives today.

Materials in this record will be admitted into evidence subject to any hearsay, evidentiary, or other objections that the President may make after opening presentations are concluded.

    I expect no bombshell today. No naming of Ciamarella, no new lines of attack. Just a straight-up knockdown of the DEM “fact” claims, elucidation of executive power, and of executive privilege – as well as the limits of the constitutional impeachment widget.

    Agreed. They operate with shocking confidence.
    It’s Schiff and co not only lying continuously but even disproving their own case in their presentation. It’s mccabe baker etc showing up as commentators on cnn.
    And they do not care.

    Partially it is Bc they know that their media will cover up for them 100 percent.
    And partially it is confidence that the presidents supporters and attorneys will continue presenting what has been so far a lackluster defense. (I’m including house committee performances)

    Let us see if sekulow etc can change things.

    We shall know soon if they have a grasp of the law and an ability to convey how idiotic this whole impeachment is.

    As SD says. I want to see Cold Anger.

    While you’re waiting, some FYI –
    Bannon had Rep Mark Meadows on his radio show this morning for the first half hour.

    As you are aware, Rep Meadows is one of 8 on Pres Trump’s legal team.
    These 8 are the Trump Team War Room Rapid Response.

    They sit in VP Pence’s room off the Senate, with 5 tv monitors. They pay attention to the “trial,” and the one(s) with a subject matter expertise is/are sent out to the TV cameras.
    They are even allowed in the Senate if they desire.

    Rep Meadows deliberately followed Schumer to the cameras, and had the Schumer rebuttal immediately.

    Take half hour after today’s “trial” and give a listen to Rep Meadows on War Room: Impeachment.
    It is knowledge for free, and fascinating.

    And rest assured, there is a strategy, very much so.
