On This Thanksgiving, Be Thankful For All Of This WINNING

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Given that today’s Thanksgiving, I figured it would be a good time to lecture you all on all the many things I am thankful for today. – Not that you needed it – everybody else is doing the same thing, after all, including the doofuses who host the morning news show on our local TV stations here in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. They are weird people, but I’m thankful for them because they do provide periodic comic relief. Like when they try to predict the weather here in North Texas more than 4-5 hours in advance. It’s honestly hilarious.

Anyway, here are a bunch of things I am thankful for on this cold and rainy Thanksgiving morning:

Family – Yeah, I know, this is obligatory, right? But I truly do have a wonderful family, filled with brothers and sisters and kids and grandkids and the most wonderful, patient, kind and understanding wife who ever lived. I even have in-laws who I really love, one of whom kept me up too late drinking really good wine last night. So, I blame my hangover on family. And what good is family without hangovers?

The Trump Economy – Every major stock market index closed at a record high level on Wednesday, the 5th of the last 8 trading days this has happened.

Adam Schiff – Seriously, what would life be like without ol’ Bug-eyes? Talk about comic relief, this guy’s better than every sitcom on television, other than The Neighborhood, which I watch religiously. Cedric the Entertainer cracks me up, and that guy who plays Dave is epic. So I’m thankful for them, too.

But seriously, Adam Schiff is a better Bond villain than any of the real Bond villains. Everything this guy does repulses anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities. He is the perfect poster child for today’s Democrat Party: Corrupt, inept, corrupt, stupid, corrupt, evil and corrupt. What more could you ask for?

Nancy Pelosi’s Dentures – Have you ever seen a more rebellious mouth appliance than those things? Really and truly, this woman is worth about $200 million, and she can’t afford a set of fake teeth that won’t come loose and try to jump out of her mouth every time she holds a press conference? I salute you, Nancy Pelosi’s Dentures! You are awesome!

America’s oil and gas industry – Think about it: Where would you be today without America’s oil and gas industry? Let me answer that question for you:  You’d be sitting in a cold, damp home with no way to cook your food, no lights, no television, no cell phone, no toothpaste, no makeup for the women-folk, no bottled water, no refrigerated food, maybe no food at all given that most plant fertilizers are manufactured using natural gas (did you know that?), and no way to get anywhere else unless you owned a horse and buggy.

In short, without America’s magnificent, glorious oil and natural gas industry you would be living a 19th century existence filled with deprivation and hardship. So quit bitching about the price for regular unleaded anytime it goes up 2 cents. Be thankful you have the blessing of being able to pay for this miracle that made modern society possible.

The Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns – I’m thankful to my favorite pro and college football teams for demonstrating earlier than usual that they are pitiful mediocrities who are going nowhere yet again, because it frees up all sorts of time for me to focus on other, more important things. Those rose bushes really needed trimming. That’s far preferable to the Dodgers, my favorite baseball team, who took me all the way into the playoffs before folding up like a cheap suit in the NLDS this season. Talk about a time sink.

WINNING. So much WINNING. – Yes, even though all of my sports obsessions are miserable losers, I am so thankful this Thanksgiving for President Donald John Trump and all the incessant WINNING he brings to all of our lives, whether we appreciate it or not.

In addition to the roaring economy and resultant booming stock market he has delivered, this is a President with an actual sense of humor. The best part of that sense of humor is that he employs it each and every day in efforts to infuriate leftist nitwits like Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan and their corrupt toadies in our fake news media. Like yesterday, when he tweeted out that meme with his face superimposed over Rocky’s body, knowing that it would throw every leftist/media toady in the country into a snit fit, and sure enough, that’s exactly what happened.

I keep thinking that all these leftist nitwits will at some point figure out that President Trump is the greatest Twitter troller of all-time, but no. They’re just not capable. They can’t help themselves, and I’m thankful for that, too.

Why? Because it’s WINNING, and I love all this WINNING.

And turkey, and dressing, and sweet potatoes and broccoli and rice casserole and pecan pie. I’m thankful for those things, too. And I’m fixing to go eat all that stuff.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, folks. I’m thankful for all of you, too.

That is all.

Schiff and Granholm Float Another Despicable Trial Balloon

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

What if the Democrats impeach President Trump, but then don’t take the next step? – The next step envisioned by the founders in writing the U.S. Constitution would be that the House, acting in good faith, would then quickly transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate. There, a trial would be held in short order to determine whether or not the impeached president should be removed.

But of course, as we have seen repeatedly in recent years, today’s Democrats are not people of good faith, a future potentiality that American patriots like John Adams and Thomas Jefferson – who disagreed vehemently on political matters but always acted in the best interests of their country – simply could not imagine. Because they simply could not contemplate the possibility of a House of Representatives being populated in the majority by actively seditious individuals who care nothing about the nation’s well-being, they did not feel the need to explicitly lay out rigid times frames for every step of this sad process to take place.

Thus we now have the spectacle of Bug-eyes Schiff and former Michigan Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm laying out a scenario on the Sunday morning talk shows in which the seditious Democrats would go ahead and vote on articles of impeachment before congress recesses for the Christmas holidays, but then hold them up indefinitely while the House Intelligence Committee under Schiff’s control continues its clown show witch hunt.

The Democrat theory of the day being that Republicans can’t begin a Senate trial until the articles have been formally transmitted to them by the House. Here is what Schiff had to say to CNN’s fake host Jake Tapper:

“We have continued to learn more information every day. And I think that is going to continue,” he said on CNN. “So, we may have to file addendums to that report. We may have other depositions and hearings to do.”

Later on the same program, after Schiff laid out his strategy for ongoing investigations as far as the eye can see, Granholm detailed the other side of this latest un-American tactic:

 “It is important to consider as Democrats to slow our roll a little bit. I was glad to hear that Adam Schiff said there is other information and this is not the end of things. And people are saying before you toss it over to the Senate, why don’t you take your vote on what you’ve heard and just hold it. Seal it, like a sealed indictment until you’ve gathered what you think is necessary to convince the jury that has already made up its mind. I don’t think we’re there yet.”

Yeah, sure, just seal it like an indictment, and keep the nation in limbo for as long as ol’ Bug-eyes sees fit.

This of course is what is known in the DC Swamp as a “trial balloon.” Schiff and Granholm obviously coordinated their remarks in advance to roll this concept out and see what kind of reaction it creates in the public and among their corrupt media toadies like Fake Jake Tapper. The media reaction is certain: They will just all nod their collective hive brain and parrot the Democrat talking points like the good little organ grinder monkeys they truly are.

The public reaction, though, is less certain. Democrats are already seeing their polling numbers drop rapidly, especially among independent voters who are sick of this nonsense. Will a clear, undisguised stalling tactic like this create even more disdain from the voters?

The reality about all of this is that Schiff and Granholm both know that the Democrats have miserably failed to present any evidence that the President has committed anything remotely resembling an impeachable offense, and they are desperate to justify keeping their pathetic witch hunt alive. Being Soviet-style Marxists at heart, they are true believers in the Stalin/Beria philosophy of “show me the man, and I will find you the crime,” and they simply cannot accept that they haven’t been able to execute on that where President Trump is concerned.

This is, in other words, the rhetoric of people who know they have failed terribly.  But if you don’t believe they are depraved, demented and despicable enough to try to follow through on it, you need to play closer attention.

That is all.

Pelosi and Schiff are About to Walk Into a Senate Trial Trap

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here’s why it might now be advantageous for the Republicans to hold a long, full Senate trail if the Democrats, as expected, send over articles of impeachment:
 
In a Senate trial, the Republicans will control the process. They will control which witnesses get called, how the hearings are conducted, what will be considered relevant to the proceedings. They will be able to compel the fake whistleblower to testify, Hunter Biden to testify, and myriad others who Adam Schiff refused to allow into his circus process.

If they chose to, Republicans would even be able to call Schiff himself, along with his staff, to testify as fact witnesses about their pre-coordination with Eric Ciaramella, and how they and their Lawfare lawyers actually participated in the drafting of the complaint that kicked off this whole clown show.

A long Senate trail would disrupt the Democrat primary season. Republicans would be able to force Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar and Michael Bennet to sit in the Senate chamber, day after day, six days a week for as long as they want to keep them there, off the campaign trail. It would be a major disruption to the Democrat nomination battle, and would pretty much ensure that their nominee would either be a 77 year-old buffoon who doesn’t know what state he’s in most days or a 37 year-old neophyte who would be easy pickings next Fall.

A long Senate trial would allow the Republicans to publicly litigate the whole DNC server fraud. Maybe most damaging for the Democrats, Republicans would be able to compel testimony from Christopher Steele and witnesses from Crowdstrike and get them on the record on national television, testifying under oath about their activities during the 2016 election campaign and who paid for it all. They could even compel testimony under oath from John Podesta and Donna Brazile and Debbie Wasserman Schulz (remember, Schulz and Brazile were heads of the DNC during that time) and even Hillary Clinton if they want to. If it turned out to be politically advantageous, they could also compel testimony from James Comey and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and John Brennan and James Clapper and all the other Obama-era coup plotters who are now employed by MSNBC and CNN.

Remember, when this impeachment scam first started, how President Trump and Giuliani and others said that Pelosi and Schiff had walked into a trap? Well, there it is.

That is all.

Impeachment Public Testimony: The Worst 8 Days in Democrat Party History

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As the public impeachment circus hearings come to a close, America asks, what in the hell was that all about? – Having worked in the communications field for a long, long time, one of the first things I learned was that if you cannot make your case to the average American in 25 words or less – 50 at the outside – you don’t have a case.

The average American has the attention span of the average house cat. If you aren’t giving them some food or scratching them at just the right spot behind the ears, they’re going to move onto focusing on the next thing that moves. That is why this impeachment circus is going to go down as one of the most epic fails in our nation’s history.

Over the last 8 days, Bug-eyes Schiff has paraded a series of non-witnesses across the nation’s television screens who not only could not make their case in 25 to 50 words, they couldn’t do it in 25 to 50 minutes. By the time people like Bill Taylor or this David what’s-his-name who testified on Thursday with Fiona Hill finished their interminable, confusing opening statements, most Americans had either tuned out or committed suicide just to make the bad men stop.

It has been hilarious watching during the breaks as DC Swamp skunks like Chris Wallace have classified a Marie Yovanovitch or a Gordan Sondland as a “compelling witness,” knowing that these insufferable gossips were compelling only to their fellow denizens of the Swamp. No one in the rest of America gave a damn what these people had to say, and that is already starting to show up in the public opinion polls.

Think about it: Everyone in America knew what Watergate was all about. There was a burglary and the President lied and obstructed justice to try to cover it all up. That’s 18 words.

Everyone in America knew what the Clinton impeachment was all about. The President was having sex with a plump intern in the Oval Office and he lied and obstructed justice to try to cover it all up. That’s 26 words. Easy.

In this Ukraine deal, the Democrats have simply failed to make any cogent case describing succinctly what it is all about. Anyone who managed to listen to this parade of offended bureaucrats came away more confused than anything else, and frankly pissed off to see first-hand the sort of petty jealousies and turf-protection activities that appear to dominate in America’s diplomatic corps.

This whole process is a stunning, amazing failure by a Democrat Party armed with the support of 95% of the nation’s corrupt news media. In order for it to succeed, Schiff and his band of circus clowns would have had to move public opinion in favor of impeachment to such an extent that a bunch of Republican members of the house and senate came over to their side. Instead, the first raft of polling data shows they have only succeeded in moving it in the President’s favor.

Republicans, in fact, are so fired up that a group of GOP senators – including Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and Mitt Romney (!) – got together at the White House with President Trump today and agreed that it would be to their advantage to hold a full-fledged trial in the Senate should the Democrats ultimately approve articles of impeachment.

Rather than try to make this thing go away quickly, the GOP is now ready to prolong it right into the presidential primary season.

These past 8 days are the worst 8 days in the Democrat Party’s history. They will ultimately ensure that Bug-eyes Schiff’s place in U.S. history will be as one of the greatest failures ever to walk the halls of congress. Awesome.

That is all.

Dear Gordon Sondland: “Assume” Makes an “ASS” out of “U” and “ME”

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, so now we’re supposed to impeach a sitting President of the United States based not just on hearsay and rank gossip, but on what Gordon Sondland assumed. And thus, the dumbest impeachment effort in the history of the known universe continues apace.

Ambassador Sondland gave us a 45 minute opening statement this morning, longer even than the mind-numbing long and winding road of hearsay and gossip delivered by Bill Taylor a week ago. During that opening statement, the self-serving Sondland threw literally everyone involved in this entire Ukrainian fake controversy under the bus. He did his best to leave behind a trail of dead bodies including Rudy Giuliani, Kurt Volker, Taylor, the dapper dandy George Kent, Alexander Vindman, Marie Yovanovitch, Jennifer Williams, Tim Morrison, the garbage man, the mail carrier, the pest control guy, the plumber, the White House chef, Ivanka Trump’s seamstress and, of course, his main target, the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Sondland wove a tail in which he assumed that, whenever anyone mentioned the word “Burisma” – the corrupt Ukrainian gas company that has been the central player in so much graft, bribery and influence peddling with various U.S. players – they actually were saying “Joe and Hunter Biden.” This latest Deep State fantasy play included the theme that everyone involved “knew” there was a “quid pro quo” in which the Ukrainian government either had to open investigations into the rank influence peddling engaged in by Joe and Hunter Biden during the Obama years or they would never get congressionally-authorized U.S. economic and military aid.

It was a wonderful tale, a tale whose plot almost made Adam Schiff’s bug-eyes plop right out onto the hearing room carpet at various points, a plot so stupendous and seemingly evil that, after his 45-minute questioning of Sondland, Schiff could no longer contain himself and called a “bathroom break” so he could rush out into the hall and hold a press conference. Alas, it was all for naught at the end of the day.

See, Sondland’s tall, self-serving tale had one inconvenient plot twist, and it turned out to be the part that he left out of it. That plot twist, as coaxed out of the dissembling Ambassador to the EU (what a perfect job for this quisling fool to be in, hobnobbing and partying with the quisling fools of Europe) by Ohio congressman Michael Turner, is that, in the only conversation Sondland actually had with President Trump on this whole “quid pro quo” nonsense, the President told Sondland not once, but twice, “I want nothing! I want no Quid Pro Quo!”

Oh. Schiff’s bugeyes sank deeply into his tiny cerebral cortex when Sondland had to admit to that. Here’s the clip:

Turner: Answer the question – no one on this planet told you that Trump was tying this aid to the investigations. Because if your answer is yes, then the chairman is wrong and the headline on CNN is wrong. No one on this planet  told you that President Trump was tying aid to investigations, yes or no.

Sondland: Yes.

Oh.

Early in my professional career I had a very smart boss who taught me a very important lesson. When I had failed to carry out a task and he asked me why that had happened, I told him that I had assumed another person on our team was going to do it.

He smiled and asked, you know what “assume” does, don’t you? When I said no, he said, “assume” makes an “ass” out of “u” and “me.” Don’t assume anything – if you aren’t sure, ask.

Obviously, Gordon Sondland never had a smart and kind boss who was willing to teach him that very important life lesson. Even more disturbing, Sondland decided to cling to his assumption even after his current boss, the President of the United States of America, personally informed him that his assumption was wrong.

This is the kind of self-serving fool who permeates our diplomatic corps and the rest of our federal bureaucracy, the sort of jackass President Trump was elected to get rid of. Sadly, Mr. Trump has no one to blame for Sondland but himself, since he appointed the slug to his ambassadorship.

No time like the present to correct that enormous judgment error.

Some clips from the hearing for those who missed it.

Rising star Elise Stefanik:

Devin Nunes:

In the Business World, This Impeachment Circus Would be an HR Dispute

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Anyone who has ever spent any time in the business world has been in this meeting: You’re running a project, and you get your 20-member project team together in the main conference room for a meeting. You’ve prepared an agenda for the meeting, assigned whatever speaking roles need to be performed, distributed whatever pre-read documents are necessary for the meeting to produce its desired result.

You have done your job as the team lead. And the meeting goes just as planned. The discussion points were all covered, the various speakers all added well to the conversation. The meeting ended with heads nodding all around the table, and everyone seemed happy.

And yet, within hours you discover that the 20 team members left your well-planned and executed meeting with 20 different perceptions of what was said and what was supposed to happen going forward. In fact, one of the participants in the meeting turned out to be so upset because his priorities weren’t addressed that he actually decided to go lodge a formal complaint with Human Resources, and then gossiped about it with anyone who would listen in the break room.

You discover all of this because a few hours after the meeting ended, you got a call from HR demanding that you come explain why employee X’s personal priorities weren’t addressed in your carefully-planned and executed meeting.

Anyone who has been in a team lead and/or management position in the business world for any extended period of time has found themselves in this position. It happens every day in every sizable company in America.

This is exactly what happened in the wake of the July 25 call between President Donald Trump and his counterpart in Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.  You had a bunch of diplomats/bureaucrats/spies listening in on that call on the “American” side – although, given that he was offered the job of Ukraine Defense Minister no fewer than three times, it is questionable how “American” Alexander Vindman actually is – and every one of those career government employees left the call with their own unique impressions of what just happened.

One of those people – Vindman – was so upset that his own personal priorities for the call had not been met that he decided to go file a complaint, not with HR, but with the NSC counsel, and then went around gossiping about it to apparently anyone who would listen to him. One of those people was CIA plant Eric Ciaramella, who became the fake “whistleblower” who kicked off this whole affair after consulting with Bug-eyes Schiff and his staff.

In essence, that is what all of this has now boiled down to after three mind-numbing days of he-said, she-said, we-said, they-said, I-was-told, I-heard, I-thought, I-felt and I-was-upset nonsense from these “public servants.”

The big difference is that, in the business world, each and every one of these self-important jackasses would be fired by any competent boss. But in the government world, the worst that will happen to any of them will be getting reassigned to some cushy teaching job at Georgetown University.

These are exactly, precisely the very people 63 million pissed-off Americans hired Donald J. Trump in 2016 to get rid of.

That is all.

Yovanovitch Ovation Signifies Everything That is Bad About the DC Swamp

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The highlight of Marie Yovanovitch’s career illustrates everything that is wrong in the DC Swamp. – Those of you who watched last Friday’s fake “impeachment” clown show hearing all the way to the end – my condolences to all 6 of you – will be aware that those assembled in the hearing room’s audience gave ex-Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch a standing ovation as the hearing adjourned.

After all, she had given quite the performance, repeating over and over and over how her removal as the U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine in April had made her “feel,” and how she had a big case of the sads over having to go to work at a cushy job at Georgetown University where she knocks down a couple hundred grand a year polluting the mushy minds of 18 year-olds with her globalist indoctrination propaganda. That’s a hard life by DC Swamp standards since it might require her to drive 30 minutes each way from and to the luxury townhome she no doubt occupies in Arlington, Alexandria or whatever enclave of like-minded “citizens of the world” she lives in.

Even worse, if her car’s in the shop, she might even have to – gasp! – take the nation’s cleanest and most efficient subway into work every once in awhile, which might cause her to have to mingle with some of the little people who don’t share her status as a part of America’s diplomatic corps. Oh, what a terrible lot in life she now must suffer through, all because of the Bad Orange Man in the White House.

Think about that standing ovation for a moment: Exactly who was present in that hearing room audience? The answer is obvious, isn’t it? The room was filled to the gills with Yovanovitch’s fellow DC Swamp rats, skunks and snakes. Lobbyists, political staffers, campaign advisors, fellow members of the Ivy League-educated “diplomatic corps.” Oh, and don’t forget the reporters and camera people – many of them were standing and applauding, too.

Toss in the corrupt Democrats – and a couple of Republicans as well – sitting on the Committee itself, and you had yourself a real microcosm of almost everything that is wrong with our national government today assembled right there in a single congressional hearing room. The only things missing were representatives from our still-corrupt dumpster fire of an FBI, or representatives from the CIA and other intelligence agencies. You know, someone like Eric Ciaramella.

That hearing room was basically populated by the same people who were in attendance at Nationals Park when President Trump was roundly booed during the 5th game of this year’s world series. Yovanovitch would not have received any similar treatment had her hearing been held in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where the crowd assembled for the game between Alabama and LSU gave Trump a long standing ovation of his own just a few weeks ago. Nor would she have received a standing O anywhere else out here in Flyover Country, that vast, red 80% of the continental United States that lies between the elitist enclaves along our East and West coasts.

Yovanovitch’s resume is impressive. She has served her country for 33 years in the only way she knows how to do it. The problem is that the only way she knows how to do it is from the globalist mindset, a mindset that places America’s best interests below the interests of he rest of the world. It is the mindset that for the 28 years prior to Trump’s taking office led to the steady diminution of the United States as a global superpower, and to the transfer of many trillions of dollars in American wealth to every tinhorn dictator, Marxist strongman and EU corruptocrat on the planet.

It’s the mindset of the DC Swamp and the corrupt news media that serves as its loyal megaphone. It’s the mindset that leads media hacks like Chris Wallace to characterize Yovanovitch as a “compelling witness.” Because, inside the Beltway, she was totally compelling. But outside the Beltway and between the coasts, not compelling at all.

Ultimately, that disconnect between the mindset of our society’s self-annointed elites and the rest of America – the real America – is why this impeachment coup effort will end up just like the failed Mueller coup attempt: A miserable, epic failure.

That is all.

The Fake Impeachment Coup Effort Goes Back to at Least April

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Readers who watched Friday’s fake impeachment hearing will likely remember the moment when, after President Trump had released the full transcript of his first call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, Bug-eyes Schiff read the White House’s read-out summary of the call, prepared by staff of the National Security Council, into the record. You will also remember that Bug-eyes dramatically noted that, hey, this NSC summary of the call does not accurately reflect what was actually said on the call.

Specifically, Bug-eyes pointed to this passage from the NSC summary:

“[President Trump] underscored the unwavering support of the United States for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity – within its internationally recognized borders – and expressed his commitment to work together with President-elect Zelensky and the Ukrainian people to implement reforms that strengthen democracy, increase prosperity, and root out corruption.”

Bug-eyes then noted, as his eyes almost bugged right out of his pasty noggin, that the transcript of the call does not indicate that President Trump in fact said any of those things on the call. Naturally, Schiff wants the public to believe that this incorrect read-out summary of the call is somehow a part of a nefarious White House scheme to cover up the President’s “real” conversations with Zelensky.

But there’s a problem with the Democrats’ latest false narrative to frame President Trump: Guess who prepared that read-out summary of that April call? Why, as the Washington Examiner reported on Saturday, that job fell to the NSC’s “Ukraine expert.”‘

Guess who that happens to be? If you said retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who plays the role of the unassailable military guy in this whole charade, you win the prize. This would be the very same Alexander Vindman who tacitly admitted during his Capitol basement interrogation that he believed it was his job to actively undermine and countermand President Trump’s policy towards Ukraine, even as he laughably claimed he faithfully worked to execute that policy.

This would also be the very same Alexander Vindman who pretty much undoubtedly is one of the “sources” for the fake complaint filed by fake whistleblower Eric Ciaramella, the CIA leaker/spy who went right back to the CIA once his role in this fantasy play had been executed and remains gainfully employed there today. Vindman himself remains embedded at the NSC with the apparent full backing of the Pentagon and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who could recall him from his posting at the White House at any time for any reason.

In fact, a good case can be made that it is the Pentagon’s duty to the Commander-in-Chief to act to reassign Vindman to some clerk job in the Pentagon basement, since it is politically impossible for the President to make that happen at this time. Yet, the generals do nothing to remove this human cancer. Think about the implications of that inaction in this whole scenario.

So as we see clearly now, this latest coup plot to remove the President via this impeachment circus did not begin with Bug-eyes and his staff coordinating the complaint with Ciaramella. It began at least in April with Vindman constructing the read-out summary of that call in a way that supports the Democrat/media “coverup” narrative.

It would be a great next step if the Examiner could endeavor to find out who else at the NSC was in the chain of approval for Vindman’s summary. Let’s all remember that President Trump’s National Security Advisor at that time was this guy named John Bolton, who the President got rid of in August.

Oh.

This is not an impeachment, folks. This is a slow-rolling coup d’etat, one that has been moving since at least April, and likely earlier than that. It’s the “back-up plan” to the Mueller “back-up plan.”

That is all.

Marie Yovanovitch Just Wants to Live in a Hallmark Movie – Is That too Much to Ask?

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Not even close. – Every stock market index set a new record-high close on Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average closing above 28,000 for the first time, a level that no Democrat on the face of the earth could have imagined just three short years ago. Media outlets like CNBC of course attributed the weeks astonishing gains to good news on the trade front, which is partially valid.

But let’s not kid ourselves here: Traders keep up with politics very closely, and they were also reacting to the confirmation that, in their ongoing three-ring fake impeachment circus, Bug-eyes Schiff and San Fran Nan are holding a big bag filled with nothing. Or maybe San Francisco sidewalk poop. Either way, this game – and sadly, this very serious abuse of our system is just a game to the Democrats – is not going well for the bad guys.

It isn’t going well even though they got some unanticipated help from President Donald Trump himself on Friday morning, when he stupidly intervened in the pointless, overwrought testimony by ex-Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch with this:

Dear Mr. President: We love you, but man, your role model Sun Tzu would have definitely advised against that particular move. That’s not 4-D chess, that’s a Jason Garrett 4th-down call with the game on the line. When your opponent is in the process of destroying itself, just get out of the way.

It wasn’t so much the content of the tweet, but the timing. Sure, Yovanovitch was coming across as a sympathetic witness, but mainly to those who wanted to be sympathetic to her in the first place. Plus, she was at that moment in time being questioned by Bug-eyes, the most notorious pathological liar and least sympathetic figure in the entire U.S. congress. Why interfere with that?

Schiff’s eyes damn near popped right out of his pasty face as he read the tweet to the national TV audience, knowing that the President had just handed him and his corrupt media toadies what will become the narrative for this entire weekend.

Other than that single moment, Yovanovitch’s entire day boiled down to essentially this:

Yovanovitch:

“I was told…”

“I heard that…”

“It was my understanding…”

“I felt…”

“I was concerned…”

Question from Democrat lawyer and Schiff and every other Democrat on the Commitee:

“How did that make you feel?”

Yovanovitch:

“I don’t know…”

“It made me feel terrible…”

“I felt intimidated…”

“Why did they say mean things about me…”

“I’m brave, just like the diplomats at Benghazi (seriously, she compared herself to those who came back in body bags thanks to Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s mendacity)…”

Question from Democrat lawyer and Schiff and every other Democrat on the Commitee:

“How did that make you feel?”

The entire day boiled down to how Ms. Yovanovitch feels. She was there for no reason other than a pathetic attempt to garner sympathy from the public.

Illinois Congressman Mike Quigley, the simpleton who told us on Wednesday that hearsay evidence is all like, superior to first-hand evidence and stuff, or something, actually boiled Yovanovitch’s day right down to its very essence in his questioning, which amounted to:

– It’s a Hallmark movie (yes, he actually said this, too)
– The ambassador’s feelings have been hurt
– It was not her preference to be fired.

Oh. Okay. Cue the bad Christmas music, someone.

The day will do no lasting damage to President Trump, even with Bret Baier and Chris Wallace urging the Democrats to somehow turn the tweet into an article of impeachment claiming “witness tampering” (yes, they both actually said that, too). But the tweet did throw the committee Republicans off their game. It was a needless interruption into a day that was destined to go just like Wednesday had gone, with a witness who came off as “sympathetic” to corrupt media hacks and other DC swamp skunks, but who would do nothing to move American public opinion, which, again, IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT.

No summation of the day’s events would be complete without including a couple of clips from Republican Cong. Elise Stefanik, who is quickly turning into a major force with her questioning in this process.

First, Stefanik gets Yovanovitch to admit that she was prepped by the Obama Administration to answer questions about Joe and Hunter Biden’s influence racket related to corrupt Ukrainian gas company Burisma:

Second, watch as Sefanik almost literally undresses Bug-eyes before the nation’s eyes. It is a true tour de force for the ages:

Beautiful.

One last word here: The Republicans have got to replace their staff lawyer, Steve Castor, with someone who knows what he or she is doing. I’m sure Castor is a fine committee counsel, but he is just god-awful on television. This guy has more rabbit holes to run down than Bugs Bunny, and he is clearly not at all comfortable in this role. The Democrats had the foresight to hire contract counsel, Lawfare attorney Daniel Goldman, just for this impeachment process. Goldman hasn’t been great, but he has been more effective than Castor.

Devin Nunes has this entire weekend to go find an attorney who actually knows how to question a witness in a live hearing. There are about 10,000 of them practicing in Washington, DC. I’d bet dozens of them have been knocking down his door the past few days. Hire one of them, Mr. Chairman.

That is all.
