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.”
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.”
