Elise Stefanik Swings Big Timber…

We might not align on all issues, but whooo doggies…. Rep. Elise Stefanik swings big timber and fights when needed during this impeachment fiasco.  If I had a $10 budget for lunch, I’d send it to her reelection campaign and wait to eat til dinner…. she’s worth it.

Most of the interview with Trump’s legislative defense team is in this video, but don’t miss the moments at 20:05 when Stefanik takes the mic.

        jx . . . I am reminded of that old maxim . . “don’t argue with an idiot, soon people won’t be able to tell the difference.” Elise should have cut her off with a biting remark that would leave her speechless. These people need to be put in their place when they cross the line into disrespect.

      Here’s the point we all need to understand: seems that about half of the corruption going on in the world is because of USA foreign aid money! The scam runs like this…we announce $2bn in aid…then the “administrators ” sets up buddies, well connected, and family to win contracts for the spending spree. How rich can you get…James Biden stood to split up a $735m profits from a $1.5b housing contract in Iraq…that’s 50% of our money being stolen. And just why in the hell are we building a 100,000 homes in Iraq anyway.

      Yeah I’m good with No Foreign Aid to anyone. If you want to send YOUR money I’m good with that, otherwise all the government is doing is causing corruption everywhere!

        I remember talking to a group of Africans who wanted to sell our products in Africa. They wanted a certain amount of travel money – I asked how much. The price was about 10 times first class tickets and $300/night hotels for the trip! I asked why. They said, don’t ask – we have to clear the business with folks.
        The UN had paid $1B for a road in that country. The $1B bought about a mile of gravel. Seriously.
        Guess who did the work for that road? French and Belgian companies. US companies did not want to work there because of our anti-bribery laws.

        I can go on and on. UN money to Kenya, Uganda, India etc. – gone to bureaucrats in Swiss bank accounts. This corruption has been going on for a LONG time.

        Time to stop all aid. Even defense aid. Money is fungible – if I know you’ll take care of my safety, I won’t allocate any of my own money to that. If I know you’ll take care of me for an accident, I won’t buy insurance and I won’t put money into a rainy day account. Let the countries start managing their own finances and safety.

        We don’t need any defense treaties either. The US entered into world wars 1 and 2 out of a sense of obligation – not out of a need because of treaties. Which meant that the other countries also had to fight.

          Watching the propaganda machine gin up so much hatred towards not only one man, but towards our whole country and half of its citizens, so efficiently is frightening to watch. PDJT is right. The press is enemy of the people. Without hyperbole, it’s really not that much different from the way Germans ginned up hatred towards the Jews. They have literally created a group of people who have actual potential to come into power (Sanders followers) who want to “re-educate” half the population and make wealthy people build their “Green New Deal” infrastructure projects.

      Rep. Stefanik is a an articulate woman with critical thinking and reasoning skills. This is not surprising since she represents voters in the blue collar city of Buffalo. Working people get it… She is a welcome contrast to the despicable Rep. Jerry Nadler and Sen. Chuck Schumer. I thought the President’s lawyers exposed that pair for their duplicity by playing their comments regarding the impeachment of Bill Clinton.

      They had a long-running segment on 60 Minutes called Point/Counter-Point. Liberal Shana Alexander debated conservative James J. Kilpatrick each week. It was a big deal then (70’s?) to see a woman arguing aggressively with a man.

      Saturday Night Live did a recurring parody version, with Jane Curtin and Dan Aykroyd. At some point in each debate Aykroyd would get frustrated and yell out “Jane, you ignorant slut!”.

      I suspect provocateurs/reporters like NBC Heidi are always trying to create their own story by being belligerent or obtuse: either works. She hoped Elise would start screaming abuse and give her a distracting new story. It works better, of course, if it’s a man yelling at a woman, but the leftist reporters are particularly targeting our Elise these days.

          The Dems love playing this after the fact game. Trump wasn’t going to release it but since we caught him, he released it.

          They fail to see the flaw in their argument (nah, they see it they just don’t care because they think we are stupid- see CNN vid from the other day) that the aid was released.

      These people aren’t asking questions, they’re framing a narrative. That is: the narrative is already written; the questions are manufactured and subsequent answers massaged to buttress the narrative.

    I thought it showed the disadvantage of being female in politics. Stefanik has lots of brains and is articulate, but her voice wasn’t loud enough (without shouting) to plough through the cr*p of the “reporter”‘s yapping. A guy with a big deep voice would have been able to just keep on going and drown it out.

    I remember from long ago a British politico called Douglas Hurd, who was a sort of upper class RINO type who was excellent at dealing with reporters clustering round and yapping inane questions at him. He’d just power up the lungs and then you couldn’t hear the yapping at all. Obviously what came out of his own mouth was pretty much cr*p itself – undiluted establishment platitudes – but it came out – with no effort at shouting, just talking, at such an impressive volume, and in such deep echoing tones, that it sounded authoritative. But that was incidental, mostly it drowned out the yapping. And the yappers knew it, so after a while they didn’t even bother flapping their own lips.

        A naturally loud voice is a political asset.

        If your loud voice enables people to hear your ridiculous opinions more clearly, and they then take against you, the problem lies with your ridiculous opiniions, not with your loud voice.

        And at least in theory, there’s something you can do about your ridiculous opinions. Whereas if you have a naturally quiet voice, you’re stuck with it. Outside the world of politics, of course, a quiet voice may be just fine. But in politics it’s a disadvantage.

It has been going on throughout Trump’s presidency — yet another class of idiots that don’t have the common sense, or true character, to stand with the people’s choice, but think they can do better if only we all listen to them. And another class that has outed itself remarkably well, just in selfish defiance of the President.

    it is vitally important to stuff facts that are falsifiable to the corrupt press..and elise does an excellent job of commanding the facts.

    the next step….right after this impeachment sham is over, is to refer an investigation to the DOJ to look at some suspicious business dealings with former corrupt money laundering schemes. And not just Burisma…and not simply the Biden boys. A full investigation..

    special counsel..

    what will it take?

    perhaps a leak of some financial records that show criminal violations of reporting proper IRS filings?

    perhaps a leak of some former business partners who KNOW the kind of criminal kickbacks and real abuse of power by Congressional members who were received foreign contributions to their campaigns and purses in return for some special provisions that included real QPQ realities?

    perhaps a leak to show how the former US aid and loan guarantees were distributed in high numbers to favorable US businesses that enriched members of congress, their families and contributors?

    The point is, this impeachment is really about corruption in Ukraine…

    trust me when i say this..when this impeachment is over..and this administration does not pursue ANY criminal investigations into Ukraine…The corrupt left will point at it and make it a very big political knife towards President Trump..They will take this issue AGAIN..and use it to demonstrate the argument that this President never had, and continues to not have, any intention whatsover in investigating corruption.

    we should not allow them this space.

    and we should do it no matter what the corrupt jackwagons will suggest about this President.

    We should be looking at Ukraine will a fine tooth comb..and serving indictments that will surely reveal the extent of manipulations and massive fraud that included Biden..and many others.

    We need to take this fight because it serves justice..and it achieves the goals this president has argued correctly is his asserted legal constitutional powers.

    and we should not be leaving this job up to Rudy alone.

    lets get behind this right now, and start planning the next steps.

    it’s chess. this impeachment is already over.

    it’s time to get on the offense and put these corrupt officials in serious jeopardy.


    • My first reaction is to ask, can’t we first focus on indicting, prosecuting and imprisoning all of the perpertrators of the coup d’etat against the President and people’s choice — including Obama/Soetoro, the two-bit master(batory)mind?

      My second reaction is, well, we need to pick up Washington DC bodily, and shake out everyone in it (we can ask the President to stay in Maralago for a day or two while we do this)…and step on them as they scurry away.

      Ha-ha, just kidding. On the theory that we should prosecute on the basis of “last in, first out”, we should first go after the criminal aiders and abettors in the Senate — especially the anti-Trump Republicans — who are now “entertaining” us with their putrid antics of a “Senate trial”.

          third promise? no more campaign contributions.

          fourth promise? no federal employee or congressional member may hold any financial interest in any industry of which they hold policy or regulatory powers. No more swinging doors.

          5th promise? house members will always be under oath…just as the senate….no special rules for lawmakers. congressional members can also be impeached. Not merely expelled…but removed from office by impeachment trial.

          6th promise? tomorrow the patriot act is repealed. No more spying permitted whatsoever by any secret court. Want a warrant..go to a federal judge.

          7th promise? wrongful classification to hide misconduct will carry a penalty of forfeiture of all allowances, 10 year minimum prison terms with no parole, and for those classifications that are abused to withhold key material that would provide otherwise evidence favorable to a defendant. Immediate penalties to those involved and the case immediately dismissed with prejudice.

          8th promise? every day around 4 pm…one rotten tomatoe is allowed to be thrown at adam schiff. For the rest of his life. By any random person, selected in a lottery.

    Mittens, Murkowski, Collins, and Alexander need to wake up out of their deep slumbers. The fight for our Republic is real. The assault on our Constitution is from the left, not anything that President Trump has said or done.

    Actually, I have some sympathy for Collins because she comes from a state that is in a very blue region of the country. (I doubt that Collins survives the next election regardless of her votes in this impeachment charade, but if she were to gave a prayer, she probably needs to look like a closet Dem.) But Mittens, Murkowski, and Alexander are all from red states. Why they think they should now to the left is beyond me.

She then pretends not to know what I’m talking about, ignores my answer, claims I didn’t answer it, and resets. This is intended to get me angry and flustered, which isn’t working, but you can see how this works. The report pretends not to know obvious things. When the President talks about fake news, this is what he means. Take this book you’re holding for example. It’s a prop. Why, you’re just this patient little darling asking an innocent question. Or, maybe you’re just the know-it-all college professor looking down her nose at me like you’re the authority. It’s all for show. Folks, this is what fake news looks like.”

    This is why Trump gives helicopter pressers now. He takes away the props and the trappings of the media, and drowns them all out with a loud helicopter knowing their boom mics can’t pick up both at the same time. Stefanek and her colleagues should take a page from Trump in this regard. Marginalize the reporters, put them in an uncomfortable position where they cannot preen for the camera and the Congressman can hear the questions, but can pick and choose responses without letting the fake news reporter get into their physical space.
