Democrats Spend the Ratcliffe Hearing Protecting the Chinese Government

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

If you watched Tuesday morning’s Senate Intelligence Committee confirmation hearing for Trump DNI nominee John Ratcliffe, you witnessed an entire political party that is apparently bought and paid for by the Chinese government. Those watching the livestream on Youtube were not able to see which senator was doing the questioning, but committee Chair Richard Burr identified each of them when they were called on.

Several Republicans on the committee questioned the nominee about his concerns related to the ChiCom government and the fact that its’ dishonesty related to COVID-19 literally caused a global pandemic that has now killed hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Democrats, on the other hand, focused their questioning on … you guessed it … Russia! Because of course they did.

Any time Ratcliffe expressed his real concerns about China and its increasingly hostile posture towards our country, the Democrat doing the questioning would immediately attempt to change the subject by saying something along the lines of ‘but what about Russia?’ Clearly, the Democrat talking points memo cautions against uttering a negative word about the ChiComs.

This is despicable and dangerous for our country. We have one of our two major parties – which controls a majority in one house of congress – that literally refuses to recognize the myriad challenges that a country with 1.4 billion people poses to freedom and peace not just to the United States, but all around the globe. Not only do Democrats refuse to verbalize any concerns related to China, they and their corrupt toadies in the media aggressively smear and demonize anyone who does.

They literally appear to be actively working on behalf of the ChiCom government.

Ratcliffe, of course, knew that reality going in, having spent the last decade of his life dealing with disloyal Democrat sleazebags like Adam Schiff and Gerrold Nadler. But still, the tenor and tone of the questioning in this hearing had to be a bit of an eye-opener for him in regards to just how much control the ChiComs and their lobbyists in the U.S. exert over the entire Democrat Senate caucus.

Other highlights of the hearing included:

– Ratcliffe being asked by every Democrat whether he would lie about intelligence matters to protect the President.

– The spectacle of the senator most deeply embedded within the Deep State – Virginia Democrat Mark Warner – giving a 3-minute soliloquy about how there is no such thing as the Deep State.

– Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet and other Democrats repeatedly asking Ratcliffe if he thinks the intelligence community has run amok, as if that were some big secret at this point in history, given all the recent document releases proving that it in fact has done that.

– Kamala Harris, who has done literally nothing in response to the Wuhan Virus, asking Ratcliffe if he thought President Trump took the virus “too lightly.” After Ratcliffe answered that no, he didn’t, Harris proceeded to read an article from the Washington Post. You just can’t make this stuff up.

– One Democrat – I didn’t catch which one it was – asked Ratcliffe who he agreed with about waterboarding, President Trump or John McCain. Holy crap. Ratcliffe of course stated that he would follow the law.

These people are garbage human beings, plain and simple.

Ratcliffe will be confirmed reluctantly by this corrupt committee on a party line vote in the coming days, because the members know that their only alternative at this point would be for Ric Grenell to continue in the post for another year. Grenell has made it clear that he has no fear of this committee, and no reluctance to aggressively go after the bad actors this committee still seeks to protect.

They’ve obviously decided that Ratcliffe would be easier to deal with and control. Given Ratcliffe’s history, I suspect they are about to be disappointed in that belief.

That is all.

    A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city.

    But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

    For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

    He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.

    — Marcus Tullius Cicero, from a speech given to the Roman Senate, recorded in approximately 42 B.C. by Sallust.

    Who do Dems and Rino’s work for????

      Quite prophetic, given what befell Rome over the succeeding several centuries.

      If we use Rome as a metric, we are approaching approximately the same stage with a similar degree of internal political rot.

    2. phineas gage - May 5, 2020

      Another nice bit from Cicero:

      “The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt, the mobs should be forced to work and not depend on government for subsistence”

      Of course none of that came to pass…

        Seems mankind cannot heed sound advice nor learn from history. Looks to be repeated soon enough.

    Trump nicely trapped the corrupt SSCI with the Grenell maneuver.

    Assuming he gets a second term, this will pay off bigly.

    I hope the Democrats are disappointed in their expectation to control Ratcliffe, too…but it turns out they had no reason to fear Barr’s spearheading the DOJ, in the end. I hope Ratcliffe is more zealous in his venue than Barr has proven to be in the DOJ.

    1. Silas - May 5, 2020

      I am still reservedly optimistic about Barr. After the two document dumps on Flynn, it’s pretty apparent that the paper trail is long and convoluted. If it were me doing the investigation I would want to be as thorough as possible before I finally dropped the hammer.

      Everybody has gotten so used to leaks and confidential sources saying something that the fact we haven’t gotten much if anything from Barr or Durham has made everybody look at them as if they are doing nothing and nothing is going to happen.

      I remain optimistic that we will all be pleasantly surprised.

      1. Bill Mason - May 5, 2020

        I am trying to stay optimistic with Barr. But my patience is waning. As DB said earlier, I don’t care what is in Durham’s report, unless I see handcuffs it is all for not.

      2. phineas gage - May 5, 2020

        That’s the pro-Barr argument–he only gets one shot at what is the greatest political scandal of our history, so he has to get it right.

        1. Silas - May 5, 2020

          Yup. There will be no redos/byes on this one

        2. Gregg - May 5, 2020

          But the SC recently ruled that the same crime can be prosecuted in different courts, i.e. Federal and State. So if a DC court acquits the coup players, go to a VA, or TX state court.

          Also, just trying these creeps into bankruptcy a la Flynn, will be a huge punishment – what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. No?

          I believe that ruling was made in part to give NY state a shot at Trump and his tax or other case if he were to win in the federal courts.

          We either have double jeopardy protection or we don’t and if Trump is eligible for double jeopardy, so should be the actual DS criminals.

    Time to investigate each and every democrat in congress for ties to the CCP. Where do they get all that money?

  5. Jimmy MacAfee - May 5, 2020

    There is a reason Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want the CCP virus to be investigated, and it has nothing to do with impeachment; it has to do with treason, as political officials and big tech, Globalists and billionaires in the Epstein Club are all in the grip of the Maoists. Let me lay out the scenario of the war that China has already started; I won’t draw your conclusions for you, but will point to a number of issues and irregularities with a few questions:

    -Epstein’s island used ZTE, a Chinese company

    -Epstein was an intelligence asset; whose?

    -Hillary Clinton’s emails had an odd (equivalent to) BCC, a Chinese company

    -Three naval vessels have a lot of Sailors with the CCP Virus, Prostitutes?

    -When does this become an act of war, when naval vessels have to be taken out of operation?

    -The DNC’s platform mirrors Chinese papers’ desire: disarming Americans, unfettered abortion and persecution of Christian believers.

    -The DNC wants a Chinese system – except for those who think China is “too Capitalist,” like AOC.

    -The DNC wants open borders, and those same porous borders allow illegal Chinese to enter our nation – (not just people from Central and South America.)

    -Epstein’s blackmail operation has a LOT of names, a lot of video, including some who are principal operators in the CCP virus. How much pressure is being put upon them by foreign agents?

    A lot of this is old news, and it is a small part of what is involved.

    Chinese officials are now warning their capital that war may be unavoidable. My only solid conclusion is that this has been building for a long time, as Dubya failed when our spy plane was knocked out of the sky and then did nothing, and that the Chinse generals are arrogant, stupid and probably have murdered Kim of North Korea and his body double is standing in. Why? Because he wasn’t going to do what the Chinese generals wanted him to do, which is to be the instigator. Watch for false flags from North Korea, which will come directly from China – but pretend to be from North Korea. A shot from either one is a shot from China.

    Then you have the DNC candidates, one of which claimed that China “isn’t even competition” while another had so many conflicts of interest vis a vis his Chinese businesses and his anti-gun stances were mirrored in the Chinese newspapers.

    Then there is a sitting Senator who had a Chinese spy working for her for 20 years.

    Then you have just about everybody involved in the CCP Virus task force (minus Pence) who had or have deep ties to Chinese virology labs.

    Plus all the Chinese spies working to give China military and technological information – more than theft, since these involve national security. How many are undiscovered? These aren’t your friendly restaurant owners, many of whom are from Hong Kong and Taiwan (the real China): these scientists are heavy-duty infiltrators.

    We are at war already. Prepare accordingly. (Don’t mess with your Chinese neighbors; most likely they’re not at all involved.) Most of all, buy more ammo than you need for a lifetime.

  7. Jimmy MacAfee - May 5, 2020

    Then there is “Climate Change” and the bogus international regs (which China does not have to abide by) but would harm the US more than anyone. Anyone with a clear link to Climate Change alarmism is an agent of the CCP, or if not them, another form of Communism.
