In case there's anyone out there who still can't acknowledge the Mueller investigation was completely political, here's that Leahy-Durbin-Menendez letter to the Ukrainian prosecutor.  These three noble public servants are essentially acting as Mueller's flunkies here.  It doesn't take Adam Schiff doing a "parody" of it for us to see that the "quid pro quo" message is loud and clear.

 If Democrats were smart, they wouldn't go down the impeachment road, because then ALL of their garbage is going to come out.  But most of them obviously aren't.  Smart, I mean.

Latest Rock Hurled From Inside the Media’s Glass House: A New York Times podcast host blasted conservative talk show host Hugh Hewett for criticizing Joe Biden’s son Hunter, accusing him of making “personal attacks on a candidate’s child.”  This after the liberal media have circulated numerous unconscionable negative stories about Donald Trump’s son, Barron.

For the record, Barron was 11 years old when the left’s attacks started.  Joe Biden’s “child,” Hunter, is 49.

I assume this means the New York Times will no longer run any more stories disparaging President Trump's adult children, Eric, Don Jr. and Ivanka, right?...Right?...Hello, is this microphone on?...

 

--------------------------------------

Well, okay, so maybe Trump didn’t threaten to withhold funds from Ukraine in a quid pro quo to go after Joe Biden… BUT! The funds were suspended, so there was an UNSPOKEN threat during that Trump-Zalensky phone call! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH!...

Oops, hold on: a Ukrainian official now says they weren’t even aware that the funds had been suspended until a month after the phone call.

Once again, just as Trump is a really bad racist (overseeing prison reform and record low black and Hispanic unemployment), it appears he’s also the world’s worst extortionist.  If you’re going to blackmail Ukraine by threatening to withhold aid if they don’t do what you want, you’ve got to tell them right to their faces, like Joe Biden did.  And bragged about it! 

Maybe the Democrats can impeach him on grounds of incompetence because he’s just so lousy at being a racist, warmonger, stock market-crasher, Russia-colluder and Ukraine extortionist.

Down Memory Lane with Hillary Clinton…

Hillary in 2016: 

When candidate Donald Trump suggested at a debate with that he might not immediately accept the results of the election if he suspected Democratic fraud, Hillary Clinton called that “horrifying.” She said, “That’s not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections and we’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. President Obama said the other day that when you’re whining before the game is even finished it just shows you’re not even up to doing the job…And let’s be clear about what he’s saying and what he means. He’s denigrating—he’s talking down our democracy. I for one am appalled that somebody who is the nominee of one of our major two parties would take that kind of position.”  She later added, “I truly doubt he has ever read the Constitution.”

https://www.foxnews.com/media/hillary-clinton-trump-illegitmate-president-corrupt-human-tornado

Hillary this week, approximately 950 feeble excuses for losing later:

In declaring her support for the Democrats’ outbreak of impeachment mania, Hillary declared, “I know he's an illegitimate president. I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories...there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did…It was like applying for a job and getting 66 million letters of recommendation and losing to a corrupt human tornado."

Give credit where credit is due, she’s right: that does sound horrifying, appalling, whiny, un-American, and like someone who’s never read the Constitution.

By the way, as someone who lived in Arkansas under the Clintons, ran against the Clinton machine in every election, and assumed the Governorship when one of their inner circle was convicted on felony conspiracy and mail fraud charges, I can’t tell you how hilarious it is to hear Hillary accuse Trump of being corrupt. It’s like being called green by Kermit the Frog.

------------------------------

I suppose I owe an apology to at least one House Democrat.  I said that they were so consumed with impeachment that they were getting nothing else done.  To be fair, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did take time out from calling for impeachment to introduce her latest massive new bill to turn America into a socialist Utopia like Venezuela. 

It’s six bills wrapped up in one America-killing package, covering everything from federal rent control and federal funds for felons, to full benefits for illegal immigrants, to government involvement in just about everything.  She calls it “A Just Society,” and the separate parts have names like “The Right to Prosper Act,” “The Mercy in Re-Entry Act” and the “Embrace Act” (aww, who wants a big, warm hug from the federal government?) That’s not surprising: one hallmark of the left is that they always give the most pleasant and innocuous names to the worst legislation because who would oppose, say, the “Reproductive Justice Act,” even if it actually legalized killing newborn infants? 

At the link, Nina Bookout of the Victory Girls blog explains why “A Just Society” is actually just a bottle of socialist strychnine labeled “Happy Pills.”

    AOC said:
    "We must act boldly and swiftly to reverse the corrosive effects extreme inequality and poverty are having on our society."

    and:
    "A just society acknowledges the value of immigrants to our communities."

    Here's the problem with her plan: It will eliminate 'extreme inequality' by moving everyone into poverty (except for the government).

    Second, we do value our immigrants. We do NOT value invaders looking to turn America into a socialist hell-hole like where they are invading from!

    Well said, Mr. Huckabee. It is as plain as a nose on a person's face that the left haven't a leg to stand on. Plus, I throw some Rhinos in there with the left. #Trump2020

    I’ve left comments before so hope this won’t be regarded as taking too much of your time. We read your message every day because we feel that you are one of the most honest and reliable sources available. One of the things that I hope Republicans are doing is hiring the best PR firm they can find to prepare an honest narrative of what is going on with the Dems and impeachment, confronting their expert “spinmeisters” with the truth in a clear and simple way that the public can understand. They (Republicans) then need to flood the airwaves and social media if possible with our message in every state. This would not only help President Trump’s re-election but also conservative Republican Senate and House elections. Hopefully they are already doing this but if not they should consider it. Thanks for providing a forum for the “we the people” to express our thoughts.

    The BEST way for Trump to win in 2020 is to play ads of the Democrat left liberals own words from when they actually made sense -- as opposed to the nonsense they're saying now. Example: candidate Hillary's own words that support the 2016 elected president (PRE-election) , speeches in support of the wall and in favor of protected borders, and so much more.

    Sorry, Mr. Huckabee. The Democrats are not trying to impeach Trump because they "don't like him ". They are doing this because they are aware of how dangerously incompetent he is a president and are appalled by how utterly corrupt the Trump administration is and are horrified by his horrendously counterproductive and destructive agenda .
    Alexendria Ocasio-Cortez does not have an agenda which would turn this country into another Venezuela . But the Trump agenda is so terrible it will make the mess in Venezuela look lie a picnic for THIS country . The Democrats do NOT advocate "killing born infants ". This is a blatant lie about them which has been circulating and was spread by the right-wing "fake news " media .
    And the Republicans wine endlessly about abortion , but could not care less about children once born . They could not care less if they starve and die on the streets and neither does Trump. And they don't want babies that grow up to be gay to have any rights either . What kind of sickening hypocrisy is this, sir ?

    Impeach Outcomes:
    What IF Dems can't impeach IE House votes Yes, Senate says NO.
    What will Dems do next, another Impeachment hearing some other issue?
    House has votes, can do zero without Senate.

    Mike, is our country even fixable any more? There are so many of us out here who are beginning to feel a little hopeless that "fixable" will not happen because things are so out of control. All these investigations taking place, so many lies being broadcast, now supposed impeachment proceedings that Pelosi does not authority to order! Where does all this end??? It is like watching a kindergarten class being divided in half for a game to decide who can be the most belligerent, who can tell the most lies to get revenge on the other team, with no regard for anyone but themselves! We are the American Public!!! We do not matter any more? Apparently, the only way to bring these "players" to their senses is to vote them out of office and hope we can find some fairminded and intelligent candidates to take their places!!! Meanwhile, they continue on their dastardly way to destroying America!!!

    I hope most people today in our nation are busy enough not to waste their time watching or listening to what the Propaganda media outlets are spewing. I have a bit more time in the morning and at nite as the days are shorter in regards to the amount go daylight I have. I have spent some time watching Fox's rendition of what's happening in todays issues. the company brings short versions of Pelosi and some CNN propaganda I find them to be so dishonest and actors of the the sky is falling I find it to be so unbelievable I have to walk away. Some of the Fox anchors annoy me now I find a few of them worth listening to. I would like Huckabee to anchor a show. Although the owners may compromise him I like Huck the way he is. My advice America stay busy with family friends the arts and sports spend a little time if you can find an honest outlet for current events and avoid the media it is so dishonest.

    I am tired, Mike...just tired that we pay the congressional members to do a job and they can't seem to get anything done. I am tired of them beating up on conservatives, Christians, anything that starts with a "c", say like, cows....I am tired of people haveing to face the music because of their cover-ups (a C word for them) and them not getting "confined" as others for that wrong doing...why can't we just get on with the business of leaving the American people to their state business and these pretend federalies do comething "constructive" like, what they have been paid to do? I want to be the one to stop the house in mid-streat and say " What the hell people? You are so filled with hate and such sore loosers and for the past 3 years you have acted like 12 year olds trying to get your 10 year old cousin in trouble! WE THE PEOPLE are tired of this. Shut up, sit down and run this country...leave this ELECTED PRESIDENT alone!"

    Where to start Our President has done more in a couple of weeks to bring this country working than the Obama Administration could in 8 years he has done all of this with an arm and a leg tied together by the Media and the people on the Left. Every week the Left has brought phony and dishonest allegations against my President and the American citizens and even the Illegals. My opinion is the Left is so Anti American and the American Values that only people with Socialist and Communist views and complete Ignorance of what the two are could vote for any of the Lefts candidates. The Left knows one thing they can't beat my President by vote so they they will try and bring him down before we can elect him for 4 more years. The Left has underestimated Donald Trump and the American People the country needs to control the House Senate and the Oval Office to get this country moving forward at the speed of LIGHT!

    IMPEACHMENT OF TRUMP BY DEMOCRATS IS GOING TO HELP TRUMP GET REELECTED.
    DEMOCRATS HAD BETTER GO TO WORK WORKING WITH TRUMP. THEY ARE ALSO IN THE GIVE AWAY BUSINESS - FREE PHONES- FREE EDUCATION- FREE INSURANCE- WELFARE - & SOCIALISM.

    The American voter is indeed stupid and going for all the free stuff.
    I live in a middle class neighborhood. The folks I talk too are clueless about all the socialist plans of the democrats. Why, because CNN and MSM shield them from it. All they hear is free stuff and Trump is a criminal.
    The RNC and GOP continue to do a terrible job getting their message across. My middle class neighbors have no clue their retirement accounts will be ravaged so democrat socialists can pay for all the free stuff.
    It's no wonder the polls all show Trump losing.

    Two, actually: The Demorats (spelled intentionally) are so wrapped up in hate that they can't get anything positive done and two, why don't the newscasters, both liberal and conservative, ask the Demorats for examples of their declaration of conservatives being racists, etc.? I, for one, would welcome their having to give examples of what they are trying to make known about how awful we are.

    I'm going to prison for plagiarizing your work but I can't help myself--Remember --The Devil made me do it?
    I'm amazed at how the lame Stream media can ignore all the video of Nadler, Schumer, Pelosi and others pontificating about the very things they are now calling Un-Constitutional and Un-American. Does the media think Lincoln was a Moron too? "You can fool some -------" If even half of the information that's out their reaches only half the nation you would think Sane people would make this election a blowout for the Repubs. The media Has Killed Journalism and with rating lower than Congress you might assume somebody would tell the media giants running ALL the media would stop the insanity before they destroy the so called NEWS? networks. But Bean Counters are usually slow to pull the trigger until the P&L statements show negative numbers.

    Too bad the loudest of the democrats won't bother to read or view about what was said by them and other democrats prior to Nov 2016. Although, it would probably go right over their heads if they did. Why---that was THEN. This is NOW. Things are DIFFERENT. just smh.

    I wonder if people who belonged to the democrat party that existed 40 to 50 yrs ago realize that it has been hijacked by the Communists. The current democrats feel comfortable with the socialist label now which would have been too much honesty a few short years ago. Bernie Sanders would have been recognized for the fool he is. Times do change and I predict that the party name will change to what it really is, the Communist party and the media will admit that they are the same as Pravda and Izvestia were to the USSR, state propaganda organs.

    I wonder how much all the Democratic showboating is affecting the population mentally. Is there possibly a link between all the political mess coming from the Dems and the increase in crime, shootings, rapes etc? Some if that is because if the illegals but I wonder if there is a not so subtle effect taking place on vulnerable people. I've had to block out most of the "garbage." If a medical doctor has weighed in on this I missed it. I suspect even if the angst coming from the Dems is affecting the population negatively they would still continue to do what they are doing. It's about power and keeping their stream of money coming to them. So sad.
