The Democrats want to hold this impeachment inquiry in a vacuum (so only they control the subpoena power and the calling of witnesses.) This is completely out of the norm for any impeachment process that has occurred in history! Nancy Pelosi does not want to call for a vote on the house floor. So in my opinion, this charade is not a formal inquiry.
The reasons for this are as plain as the nose on your face. If the floor vote does not produce enough votes to proceed (218), then the whole impeachment inquiry is ended! If on the other hand she receives 218 votes, then a formal impeachment inquiry of the full house would be underway.
This brings a lot of problems to the Democrats table. Every house representative would have subpoena power! Including Republicans! This also means that cross examinations could occur! It means that the president could have his attorneys present for cross examinations and to call witnesses. They would be able to depose those witnesses just like in a court of law! In other words, the President would be able to legally defend himself. And NOT have to plead his innocence on Twitter. The Democrats do not want this! The way Nancy Pelosi is doing this, is creating a Constitutional Crisis, by NOT allowing DUE PROCESS to occur!
Adam Schiff has some serious issues with the whistleblower and complaint as well. Forget the fact that the rules changed in August 2019 for what is a whistleblower! Prior to August 2019, the whistleblower had to have firsthand knowledge of what he/she was reporting. In August 2019 however, the rules were changed by the Intelligence Community, so that a whistleblower could issue a complaint based on “I heard it from others” knowledge. This change cannot possibly stay, moving forward! It is suspicious that the presidents phone call with the Ukraine President was on July 25, 2019, and the rules change for whistleblowers was in August, 2019, a month later.
Now a whistleblower complaint can be made on hearsay (Someone told me, that someone told him, that someone told her, that something had occurred. So I’m going to be a whistleblower.) How can this type of asinine process be allowed to continue? Now so-called whistleblowers are allowed to make a complaint based on hearsay and rumors. That is not a whistleblower by any definition! We have had a whistleblower definition for more than 200 years, why change it now? To weaponize it against President Trump, that’s why.
With that said, Adam Schiff claims that he had “no interaction” with the “so-called whistleblower” (That was a lie). In fact, members of his office were having conversations with the so-called whistleblower for a month before the so-called whistleblower took his/her complaint to the ICIG (Intelligence Community Inspector General!) Which is required per the complaint form. The ICIG informed the house intelligence committee (Chaired by Admin Schiff) that he never received information that the so-called whistleblower had actually communicated with the intelligence committee before him. This is a direct violation of the rules! Now, they are saying that “more” whistleblowers are coming out about the Presidents call with Ukrainian President Zelensky. I have a question. Since the unredacted transcript has already been released, what could ANY whistleblower add that we can’t read for ourselves?
Democrats have been looking for a way to impeach President Trump since the day after the election in November of 2016. This charade is the only way they can see to block the 2020 reelection of President Trump! They know that there is no way they can beat the president on policy for the American people so they are doing this instead. They think that they can confuse the American people into not voting for President Trump in 2020.
We (The American People) cannot let this type of “Congressional Corruption” continue! President Trump is the duly elected President of the United States!
We need to rally with others to get their states to join the Coalition of States that are ready to create new amendments of the United States Constitution. And create term limits for those who serve in Congress, by using Article 5 to call for a “Convention of the Several States.” Congress will NEVER do this! We need to do it with Article 5! See “www.conventionofstates.com“
In the mean time. Call and email your Congressional Representative and tell them they ARE NOT WORKING FOR THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE! And to STOP THIS CHARADE!
There are a lot of reports on Main Stream Media saying President Trump asked Ukrainian President Zelensky to assist him with digging up dirt on his potential rival (Joe Biden) in the 2020 presidential race. This is nothing but a lie perpetrated by the Democrats and the Main Stream Media, of which they say supports Impeachment under the “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” condition of Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.
They say the transcript shows that President Trump asked the Ukrainian President to “do him a favor” and look into the Joe Biden / Hunter Biden issue. They are trying to make you believe that President Trump was “asking him to interfere with the 2020 election”. They are trying to make you believe that he strong armed the Ukrainian President by threatening to withhold $400 million in aid unless he did (quid pro quo). None of this is true!
Context is important! Especially when trying to impeach a duly elected President. And reverse an election of the people.
Please take the time to read and understand what is REALLY being said by the president and DON’T listen to the Democrats and the Main Stream Media.
Here are some facts to consider.
There is NO “quid pro quo” (I will do this, if you do that) anywhere in the transcript.
There is NO mention of withholding ANY money in the transcript.
He is not asking for any assistance in the 2020 Presidential Race anywhere in the transcript.
He is obviously having a conversation about corruption.
There are NO impeachable offenses in the transcript.
The White House released a completely unredacted transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President, Zelensky, which was made on July 25, 2019.
Below is a copy of the transcript in its entirety.
Please look at what is being said in paragraph 4 of page 2.
“The President: Well it’s very nice of you to say that. I will say that we do a lot for Ukraine. We spend a lot of effort and a lot of time. Much more than the European countries are doing and they should be helping you more than they are. Germany does almost nothing for you.”
Trump Unclassified Transcript 9-2019
“They should be helping you more” is the president telling him that he thinks that the EU needs to shoulder MORE assistance to the Ukraine, and not just the USA. President Trump has been saying for YEARS that other countries are NOT paying what they should be. This is what he is talking about here. President Zelensky agreed 1000% with President Trump.
Now pay close attention to the 1st paragraph on page 3.
“The President: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation.“
Trump Unclassified Transcript 9-2019
It is obvious the president is asking about “Crowdstrike.” He uses the words “I would like you to do us a favor” (“us” means, “The United States.”) He also uses the words “what happened” (This is a “past tense” use of words).
So, what is “Crowdstrike?” It is the “cyber-security” company contracted by the DNC to protect their servers. In May of 2016, Crowdstrike discovered the DNC servers had been hacked. Wikileaks published thousands of “John Podesta’s” emails from this hack. The FBI DID NOT take the hacked server into custody (as they should have). At the request of the DNC, Crowdstrike would do the investigation into the hack. It is believed that the Ukraine Government has access to the hacked data.
President Trump is asking his counterpart to look into the corruption that occurred in 2016.
Now look carefully at paragraph 2 of page 3. President Zelensky brings up Rudy Giuliani in the conversation first. He assures President Trump that the two presidents are Friends. He also states that he intends to be “Open and Candid” on all investigations.
“I will personally tell you that one of my assistants spoke with Mr. Giuliani just recently and we are hoping very much that Mr. Giuliani will be able to travel to Ukraine and we will meet once he comes to Ukraine. I just wanted to assure you once again that you have nobody but friends around us. I will make sure that I surround myself with the best and most experienced people. I also wanted to tell you that we are friends. We are great friends and you Mr. President have friends in our country so we can continue our strategic partnership. I also plan to surround myself with great people and in addition to that investigation, I guarantee as the President of Ukraine that all the investigations will be done openly and candidly. That I can assure you.”
Trump Unclassified Transcript 9-2019
Then President Trump responds in kind in paragraph 3 of page 3. And continues on page 4.
“The President: Good because I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that’s really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just want to let you know that. The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me.”
Trump Unclassified Transcript 9-2019
Now let’s pick the above quote apart a bit.
President Trump says “Good” He is responding to Zelensky’s comments of his surrounding himself with great people and “Open and Candid” component of the statement.
He then is telling President Zelensky that he thinks that the treatment of the fired prosecutor is “unfair“. He is indicating that a lot of people are talking about it (the main stream media would have believe that there is no-one talking at all about it). He even shows concern with “it sounds horrible to me.“
President Trump is shedding light on the following U.S. concerns of what occurred in 2015. Then Vice President Joe Biden went to Ukraine and threatened to hold up $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees if Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin was not fired in six hours (Joe Biden is on video from January 2018 bragging about this.)
Here is what is interesting:
In February 2014, Vice President Joe Biden’s son was discharged from the Navy Reserve because he tested positive for drugs (Cocaine). Hunter Biden failed the test in 2013, but he was not kicked out until February 2014.
Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma Holdings (in which he has NO experiencein the energy field) in April 2014. Just 1 month after being discharged from the Navy for testing positive for drugs.
It is reported that Hunter Biden was being paid between $50,000 and $83,000 per month for his position on the board of Burisma Holdings (a far cry more than the U.S. Navy pays).
In 2015, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin starts an investigation into a Ukrainian oligarch, Mykola Zlochevsky, owner of the oil and natural gas company (Burisma Holdings), for allegations of money laundering, tax evasion, and corruption.
Some time before July 2015, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin was told to “tread lightly on the Barisma Holdings investigation” by former Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko.
Some time before July 2015, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin indicates that he wants to interview Hunter Biden.
Some Time in November 2015, The New York Times communicates to Vice President Joe Biden, that the Prosecutor General wants to interview his son.
Some time before March 2016 in a trip to Kiev, Ukraine, Vice President Joe Biden demands the termination of the Prosecutor General within six (6) hours. Or Ukraine will NOT get the $1 Billion Dollars.
In March, 2016. The Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin is fired.
I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to see there is something not right! Hunter Biden had problems before the Navy with drugs and alcohol. Why would a foreign company place someone like this on thier board? You mean to tell me that the fact that the Vice President of the United States being his father had nothing to do with it (this is what the main steam media would have you believe)? You know that the oligarch was buying the Vice Presidency of the United States with this. “Give us special treatment and we will keep your son enriched!” This my friends is what “quid pro quo” looks like!
So, you see when President Trump asks President Zelensky to take a look at the Bidens. He Brings up “Biden’s Son” first in his conversation in the transcript. Not his rival in the 2020 Presidential race. This means, he is only interested in the investigation into corruption. But the main stream media and the Democrats in the House of Representatives, want you to believe otherwise so they can impeach him.
DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN!!! CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND TELL THEM TO STOP THIS CHARADE!

You cannot tune into ANY channel on the TV these days without hearing about the “Policy” that the Trump administration is “Ripping” children from the families of illegal immigrants!
Let’s get this straight! This “Policy” was NOT put into place by the Trump administration! It was put into place by the “Clinton”administration in the 1990’s! The Trump administration is simply “Enforcing” the “Policy” that is the “LAW” on the books!
Only the children of those that are NOT entering via a U.S. customs gate are being detained and their “Parents” are being arrested! The detained children cannot be held for more than 20 days by law.
The Democrats in office are conflating this issue because the elections are in November of this year, and they are “GINNING” up their base against this administration to get re-elected and hopefully take control of the house in November!
They want the President to sign an executive order to stop the enforcement policy. Which he could do. But this President WILL NOT do that! He wants Congress to do their job and change the law!
The President DOES NOT MAKE THE LAWS OF THIS LAND! CONGRESS DOES!
I was watching the CSPAN feed of several Democrat Lawmakers, in the halls for the Capital Building, holding up signs in front of the cameras and yelling profanities at the President as he was exiting a meeting about the issues with Republican Lawmakers on the hill.
Congressional aide or intern yells “Mr President, f*%k you!” from across the Capitol Rotunda as he walks to the Speaker’s office before mtg with House GOPers on immigration. Gets attention of USCP/Secret Service pic.twitter.com/5Uarw4FTsw
I wish the President would have confronted these lawmakers in front of those same cameras with the following questions/statements.
Who makes up the laws in the United States of America?
Who “Interprets” the laws made in the United States of America?
Who “Enforces” the laws in the United States of America?
The Legislative branch of Government! Lead by Congress!
The Judiciary branch of Government! Lead by the Supreme Court.
The Executive branch of Government! Lead by the sitting President.
Then after the questions, he could say, “NOW YOU STOP LYING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC AND GO TO YOUR OFFICE AND DO YOUR JOB”! Go write a law and put it through the system, instead of dragging your feet and blaming the President, who is enforcing laws that YOU made in the first place.
Our 2nd amendment is under attack! These bills are looking to “Ban” the sale of what the Democrat Lawmakers are calling “Assault Weapons“.
They describe “Assault Weapons” as ANYSemi-Automatic weapon that is a “Pistol“,”Rifle” or “Shotgun” and has a “Magazine“. If passed (which we would hope it would never get to the President for a veto anyway), it would mean, we could only buy “Revolvers“, “Bolt Action” and “Lever Action” weapons. And “YES”, they also say it would be illegal to possess a “SAW” (Semi Automatic Weapon).
My concern is this:
The Democrats are doing all they can to win the house and senate in November 2018. With enough votes, even if the President Vetos one or all of these bills, a recall vote “could” result in an overturn. They would need to have a super majority in the Senate, (67 votes) to do that.
The Democrat lawmakers have made their intentions well known. They want to “Repeal” the 2nd amendment.
We MUST start the fight now, or we will be seeing the start of a Revolution! It is coming! Look at the video below about Deerfield, IL. if you don’t believe me. This could be “Ground Zero”. Here is a link to the Village website about the ban. The village has hired the attorney firm of “Perkins Coie” to represent them. But the ban goes into effect on June 13th, 2018.
We need to plan a march into the Village of Deerfield! Who’s up for it?
So, call your Congressman and Senators and tell them you are against these bills. And let them know how you feel about Deerfield, IL. as well.
Vote “Republican” all the way down the November ballet in order to make change!
President Trump flew to Quebec, Canada on Friday, June 8th, 2018 to participate in the G-7 global summit on trade.
The United States has been taken advantage of for a VERY long time, and President Trump is out to set things straight.
One example of an imbalance is, Canada charges a 270% tariff (tax) on ALL dairy products that the U.S. ships into that country. But the U.S. does NOT charge any tariff on products that Canada ships to the U.S. This is just one of many examples that show what is happening to America.
President Trump is ALL for “Free and Fair” trade. A don’t charge us, and we won’t charge you approach to trade.
We also need to see a “reciprocal” trade between the other countries. We don’t want to be forced to buy their products and they don’t have to buy ours!
Late on Thursday night, Jun 7th 2018. The DOJ via the FBI had indicted and arrested the former director of security for the Senate Intelligence Committee (James Wolfe), for leaking classified information from the United States Senate, to reporters.
They also announced that they obtained phone, email and encrypted text records from New York Times reporter Ali Watkins, that appear to show her connection to Wolfe, even though she denies using him as a source.
Everyone is in an uproar about the seizure of the reporters records, saying it is against the 1st amendment rights of the reporter.
Lets be clear. The media in the United States of America have been hiding behind the 1st amendment, saying they receive the information they are reporting on from “Anonymous Sources”. This is BAD! When high level government bureaucrats release information to reporters, they are breaking the law! Why do we say that the one receiving the information is NOT?
The Spirt of the 1st amendment is being tromped on when this is happening! Conversations of our President conversing with other country leaders being leaked! Has occurred. This is madness!
The reporter should have the decency to report the leak to officials, but no, they want the story more than the justice. They believe they are working with a “Whistle Blower” and not a leaker. What is the difference you ask? A whistle blower is reporting travesties from within the place they work to a wrong doing. Their name is released to the public after conviction, and they are protected. A leaker, hides in the shadows and reports on items he or she do not agree with until they are caught. And in this case, a 55+ year old man is feeding a 25+ year old woman reporter information? Having a affair with?
I believe the Government was justified in this seizure. Since it involved her receiving classified information for a relationship/affair. It is in the name of “National Security” that hiding behind the 1st amendment cannot be allowed.
This arrest and the seizure of the reporters records will send shockwaves throughout Washington and cause others who are leaking to take notice!
Here is a clip from Tucker Carlson on Fox News on this issue. Be sure to click on the speaker in the lower right corner to unmute the audio.
Tucker: Media misses the big deal about leaker arrestTucker: When the government spies on American citizens, it's always a big deal, whether those citizens are New York Times reporters or Trump campaign staffers. Doesn't matter. There had better be a very good reason for it. The media, of course, don't recognize this. #Tucker
For several weeks, we’ve been hearing about a four-page memo that was written by several lawmakers on the right in Washington DC.
We have also been hearing several lawmakers from the left (as well as FBI and DOJ officials) saying it would be a reckless thing to release the memo!
What is this memo about anyway?
We are told it is about a tragic misuse of our intelligence gathering system that is allowed to operate under the FISA law. The claim is that several individuals within the FBI and the Department of Justice utilized the system to spy on the opposition candidate (Now President Donald Trump) and his team, during the campaign of 2015 and 2016. If this is true, it should be very concerning to every American, since this is a violation of our fourth amendment right under the Constitution of the United States.
The entire intelligence system was designed to monitor foreign individuals, enemies and entities! Not Americans in America! And certainly not your political foes (Nixon tried this with Watergate and was impeached for it!) Checks and balances were put into place to prevent having Americans that may have been picked up during foreign surveillance, masked from intelligence view. In order to unmask any American named in a particular surveillance document, the person seeking the unmasking must show probable cause to officials with statements that show a grave concern that the American that was picked up in the surveillance is a possible threat to national security and must be investigated.
The other side of this intelligence gathering system, is when officials in the intelligence community wish to Monitor or Surveil a certain suspect of a criminal act. Permission to do surveillance on Americans requires a warrant to do so.
A secret court known as the FISA court (which reminds me a lot a movie called “The Star chamber”), must be presented with evidence showing just cause for a warrant. If evidence is presented for a warrant from the FISA court is made up, the surveillance becomes a crime! This would mean the court was duped into giving out the warrant. It would be the equivalent of a police officer planting a gun on a suspect that has just been shot and killed, because there was really no gun present to justify the shooting of the suspect. And then going to a judge for a warrant to search the home of that suspect. If found out, the officer would not see the light of day from prison!
It is said, that the FBI and the DOJ did just this! That individuals within the FBI and the DOJ misused the intelligence gathering system for political purposes. It is also said, that individuals within the FBI utilized a dossier (created by a former MI6 British Agent and the research agency known as “Fusion GPS“) that was created as opposition research (that was started by never Trumpers in the beginning but taken over by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign) for a political campaign, and is known to be full of untruths, as evidence of a crime in order to obtain the warrant necessary to do surveillance against Donald Trump and his Presidential campaign.
Americans have the right to see the memo and decide for themselves!
The FBI and the DOJ are supposed to be nonpartisan investigators and lawyers! If it is true that the Obama administration utilized the intelligence gathering system to spy on the opposition candidate, then they have committed multiples of crimes that must be found and prosecuted! The upper level management of these two departments must be held accountable. In order for the American people too once again have faith in what they do. The rank and file members of these departments do wonderful work! The Bad apples at the top are the issue!
The FBI announced today that it would be extremely reckless to release the memo. I would simply ask them why? What do they have to hide?
They are trying to police themselves. They obviously cannot do that. This is evident by their reluctance to submit documents requested by the Congressional oversight committee more than seven months ago! We the people must now cleanse these departments!
They were created by Congress and they must be cleansed by Congress!
The attorney general of United States must start removing the bad apples!
As a country, we have been fighting “Illegal Immigration” for quite some time now. In the years since President Ronald Reagan created an amnesty for those here in the United States Illegally, we have seen an enormous increase of illegal immigration activity.
Pres. Barack Obama went against his own authority in creating DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals) in 2012. His Executive Action was deemed unconstitutional by the Federal Courts!
Wikipedia states the following:
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was an American immigration policy that allowed some individuals who entered the country as minors, and had either entered or remained in the country illegally, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. As of 2017, approximately 800,000 individuals were enrolled in the program created by DACA. The policy was established by the Obama Administration in June 2012 and rescinded by the Trump Administration in September 2017.The policy was established by executive action rather than legislation; however, participating individuals were sometimes referred to as Dreamers after the DREAM Act bill, a bipartisan bill first proposed in 2001 that was the first of a number of subsequent bills in the U.S. House and Senate attempting to provide a pathway to citizenship or other legal status for certain undocumented residents who immigrated illegally as children and subsequently completed some college or military service.
In November 2014 President Barack Obama announced his intention to expand DACA to cover additional illegal immigrants.
But multiple states immediately sued to prevent the expansion, which was ultimately blocked by the courts. The United States Department of Homeland Security rescinded the expansion on June 16,
2017, while continuing to review the existence of the DACA program as a whole. The DACA policy was rescinded by the Trump Administration on September 5, 2017, but full implementation of the rescission was delayed six months to give Congress time to decide how to deal with the population that was previously eligible under the policy.
President Trump actually did the DACA participants a favor! Without the six (6) month delay in the rescission, deportations would have started in October 2017.
We all have feelings about what has happened with the DACA individuals. But, the parents BROKE U.S. LAW by bringing them here illegally!
The Trump administration has outlined a four (4) point list of what must be met for him to sign a bill that passes the house and senate.
Take care of the DACA issue.
Fund the Border Wall System.
End Chain migration.
End the Diversity VISA lottery.
The current proposal the White House has released, is again, what President Trump would accept.
A path to Citizenship for 1.8 million DACA individuals and their immediate families over the next 10 to 12 years. (This could mean that they will still need to do the work that others have done to come here legally.)
Fund the Boarder Wall System with $25 Billion. (This includes: The Wall, Electronic Systems, more Border agents and other technologies.)
End Chain Migration! (only Nuclear Family allowed. No more Cousins!)
End of the Diversity Visa Lottery IN TOTALITY!
The Democrats on Capital Hill are losing their collective minds over this. They seem to only be using DACA as political tool to resist President Trump! They do not want him to have any wins!
The White House draft is a million more than what the Democrats had even asked for from the President yet, they are still not happy.
We NEED to protect our borders. Period. There are Americans that think we should NOT have any borders and we should take anyone who wants to come here. This would spark a movement to have MORE government control to look over a massive population. That would enable us to be a Socialist Country! And would be the end of our Constitution and the Freedoms it protects.
