Hunter Biden is a Clear and Present National Security Risk **UPDATED**

The new report jointly dropped today by the Senate Finance and Senate Homeland Security Committees squarely and unambiguously identifies Hunter Biden as a clear and present danger to U.S. national security should his dear old dad get elected to the presidency. The report makes clear that the younger Biden is not only in the pockets of Chinese and Ukrainian oligarchs, but Russians as well.

The fact that Hunter Biden used his daddy’s position as U.S. Vice President to enrich himself during the Obama years has long been well-documented. The younger Biden tagged along with his helpful Pop on Air Force 2 trips all over the globe to secure lucrative “business” deals with the Chinese Communist government and with the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma.

Chief among the revelations in today’s Senate report is that Hunter Biden also received a payment of $3.5 million from the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow, Elena Baturina. In addition, as reported by Newsweek, he received several subsequent payments of several hundred thousands of dollars each:

Baturina, a billionaire, was previously married to Yuri Luzhkov, who served as mayor of Moscow but was fired for alleged corruption in 2010. The report details how Biden’s business received a $3.5 million payment from Baturina in February 2014, which was described to be for “consultancy” work. In 2015, Biden also received several payments of several hundred thousand dollars from Baturina, several of which were listed as part of a “loan agreement.”

[End]

The same corrupt news media establishment that has spent the last 4 years making up allegations of “Russia Collusion” against President Trump will naturally attempt to downplay this and other findings of the Senate report, because that is what the corrupt news media does. But the stench of Hunter Biden’s corruption is inextricably linked to his creepy father given the role Joe Biden played in shepherding him all over the world on Air Force 2, as summarized by Daily Wire:

Hunter Biden was a U.S. Secret Service protectee from Jan. 29, 2009 to July 8, 2014. A day before his last trip as a protectee, Time published an article describing Burisma’s ramped up lobbying efforts to U.S. officials and Hunter’s involvement in Burisma’s board. Before ending his protective detail, Hunter Biden received Secret Service protection on trips to multiple foreign locations, including Moscow, Beijing, Doha, Paris, Seoul, Manila, Tokyo, Mexico City, Milan, Florence, Shanghai, Geneva, London, Dublin, Munich, Berlin, Bogota, Abu Dhabi, Nairobi, Hong Kong, Taipei, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Johannesburg, Brussels, Madrid, Mumbai and Lake Como.

[End]

Also from the Daily Wire article, here are findings of other examples of Hunter Biden’s financial entanglements with unsavory foreign nationals:

  • In addition to the over $4 million paid by Burisma for Hunter Biden’s and Archer’s board memberships, Hunter Biden, his family, and Archer received millions of dollars from foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds.
  • Archer received $142,300 from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan, purportedly for a car, the same day Vice President Joe Biden appeared with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arsemy Yasenyuk and addressed Ukrainian legislators in Kyiv regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea.
  • Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.
  • Hunter Biden opened a bank account with Gongwen Dong to fund a $100,000 global spending spree with James Biden and Sara Biden.
  • Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow.
  • Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an “Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.

[End]

Oh, yeah, that’s what the country needs: A presidential son who is involved in human trafficking.

Again, the corrupt legacy media will do all it can to downplay all of this and exonerate Creepy Uncle Joe from any involvement. But now you understand why a frail, elderly, mentally declining senior citizen has spent the last 17 months in a desperate pursuit of the office of the presidency. Because, if he can win in November, his appointed Attorney General can clear the stench of his son’s unsavory associations completely away.

Hunter Biden is a clear national security risk, but not as much of a risk as dear old Dad.

**UPDATE** Speaking of dear old Dad, watch him respond to a question about his role as his son’s facilitator in all of this:

That is a frail, elderly, desperate man.

That is all.

Rudy Giuliani is a National Treasure

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

America’s Mayor has the real story about Obama-era corruption in Ukraine. – Rudy Giuliani is currently the subject of an ongoing smear campaign by the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies.

This is not surprising given the fact that the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York has spent most of the last year investigating the rampant corrupt in Ukraine committed by Joe Biden and various other high-ranking Democrats and their ne’er-do-well children. Smearing the messenger has always been the standard response by the Democrat/media complex whenever any investigator is hovering right over the target. Just ask Attorney General William Barr as a recent example.

New York Democrat Jabba the Nadler is so concerned about Giuliani that he actually spent part of his disgraceful testimony in last week’s impeachment trial smearing the Mayor. In an appearance on Fox News with host Judge Jeanine Pirro, Giuliani was given a chance to respond. The result was epic and hilarious.

Here’s the clip, followed by a transcript:

 

Here’s The Transcript:

Giuliani: …[Biden took] millions of dollars out of Ukraine, totally corruptly. Biden was involved in two massive bribes. Solschefsky bribed him, he bribed Poroschenko, he disgraced the United States of America, and Nadler should be ashamed for covering up for him.

Biden also did the same thing in Iraq, where he was point man, and his brother got a piece of a $1.5 billion housing project. And he did the same thing in China when he was point man, and the kid [Hunter] got a $1.5 billion investment from China in a hedge fund for himself, [John] Kerry’s kid, and Whitey Bulger’s nephew.

Biden is so dirty that you and I would have had him indicted 6 months ago. And Nadler is doing what a hack Democrat usually does – he’s covering up for a crook. I don’t care if he [Biden] was vice president, I don’t care if he’s running for president of the United States.

I’ll say it straight out: Joe Biden is a crook, and he sold out the United States of America in Iraq, in Ukraine, in China. And if we can’t prosecute him, we don’t have justice in America.

Judge Jeanine: Ok, now there is a sound [bite] where he [Nadler] says with Ambassador Yovanovitch out of the way the first chapter of the Ukraine scheme is complete. Giuliani and his agents could now apply direct pressure to Ukraine government to spread the falsehood. And who benefitted? Who sent Mr. Giuliani in the first place? And then, you know, he does the old ‘what did the President know and when did he know it” [crosstalk]

Giuliani: He’s a big jackass. C’mon. All you gotta do is look at him and listen to him. He’s a big jackass. He’s a hack politician who repeats whatever Democratic line there is, and half the time he’s lying his head off.

The fact is, he’s covering up a massive scandal at the highest levels of the United States government and the Ukrainian government. The Vice President of the United States corrupted the President of the Ukraine…

Judge: …he seems to be getting away with it…

Giuliani: …well, because he’s got all the media on his side. They don’t wanna deal with the fact, I’ll say it one more time: Joe Biden has been a big crook for most of his career.

Every time Joe Biden was a “point man,” you know what happened? The Biden family made millions, and America got sold out.

[End]

You have to love that.

Giuliani promises to gradually release the evidence he has accumulated to back up his claims on his website starting this week. The Democrat toadies in the corrupt news media will alternatively ignore whatever the Mayor releases, or spin it as best they can, all the while continuing to smear the messenger. Because that is what our corrupt news media does.

Don’t fall for the smears and pay close attention to the facts: Because, in the history of the U.S. Justice Department, there have been few people who knew how to accumulate and present damning facts against career criminals as well as Rudy Giuliani.

That is all.

President Trump: Right About Ukraine, Right About Puerto Rico

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

You seriously cannot make these people up. – Elizabeth Warren has richly earned the nicknames of Fauxcahontas and Lieawatha. This is a woman who has spent her entire adult life brazenly lying not only about things she has done and things she claims other people have done, but also about who she even is as a person. Literally every aspect of her campaign and claimed personal biography are outright, laughable lies.

So, how does this lifelong 100% fraud of a human being respond, when asked by a reporter if it is wrong for any candidate to lie to the American people? Why, exactly as you would expect her to:

The sad thing is, that statement will most likely actually improve her standing among the Democrat Party’s depraved and ultra-ignorant voter base. Sad.

Trump was right, part 13,811. – As the Senate trial of President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) cranks up, it is important for everyone to remember how and why we arrived at this sorry point in the Democrat/media/Deep State’s neverending coup d’etat. As fortune would have it, a very timely and relevant reminder of the President’s good judgment popped up over the weekend in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.

First, Ukraine, which has served as the fulcrum for the idiotic Pelosi/Schiff impeachment scam. This entire thing is based on a phone call the U.S. President held with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky back in July. On that call, President Trump asked Zelensky to “do us a favor” and ensure that his equivalent of the Justice Department look into the very shady activities in his country of Joe and Hunter Biden, and to investigate interference in the 2016 election by various officials of the previous Ukrainian government.

Pelosi/Schiff and their toadies in the corrupt American news media have attempted to portray this very valid, lawful and in fact necessary request by Mr. Trump as a crime worthy of having him removed from office. This request was in fact part of the President’s duty in keeping with his oath of office given that the U.S. has multiple anti-corruption laws related to international business transactions, as well as an anti-corruption treaty with the Ukraine that requires both countries to police activities within their borders.

President Trump has long known from his own experience that Ukraine is an utterly corrupt country, and Burisma, the natural gas company that awarded Hunter Biden with a cushy, high-paying seat on its Board of Directors, has been at the center of much of that illicit activity. Corruption has long run rampant in Ukraine, on a par with what we see in the failed state of Mexico.

President Trump has on many occasions described his conduct of this call with Zelensky as “perfect,” and indeed, it was exactly that. It is an undeniable fact that the previous Ukrainian administration did interfere in the 2016 presidential election on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the DNC, and it is an undeniable fact that Hunter and Joe Biden profited handsomely by selling the then-Vice President’s influence to Burisma.

President Trump was right about the Ukraine, and did what his oath of office required him to do.

Now, let’s look at Puerto Rico, the U.S. territory whose government has also long been run by utterly corrupt leftists. After the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria in 2017, President Trump authorized FEMA and the U.S. military to mount a massive relief effort that cost the U.S. taxpayer well over $100 billion.

The President also attempted to take steps to ensure that the distribution of the relief funds and supplies would not be left entirely in the hands of the Puerto Rican government, which he knew to be little but a den of thieves. Again, he was simply doing his job, but of course he was roundly blasted by Democrats and their media toadies who smelled an opportunity to score political points on the backs of suffering Puerto Ricans. Because this is what Democrats do.

The President was portrayed as a heartless, ignorant buffoon who didn’t care about the suffering of all those people who had lost their homes and fortunes in the storm. But in reality, he was attempting to ensure that the relief ended up getting to the people who needed it the most.

In the end, the Administration ended up throwing up its hands and deciding to leave the distribution of the aid in the hands of the Puerto Ricans. Over the weekend, we saw the result of that decision, as the head of Puerto Rico’s emergency management agency was fired after a locked, gigantic warehouse filled with thousands of tons of emergency supplies was discovered and revealed to the public.

As reported by the Daily Caller:

One resident of Ponce posted a video of the discovery to Facebook, showing a massive warehouse full of pallets upon pallets of bottled water, non-perishable food, diapers, baby formula, and emergency supplies, according to CNN. The video is now private, after the man who recorded it was threatened with repercussions from law enforcement, but the news network says the warehouse contained much-needed supplies that are still useful (and valuable) particularly now that Ponce is suffering from a second natural disaster.

Yes, of course the citizen who revealed the atrocity to the public is now being punished by the utterly corrupt, leftist government.

So, yet again we see the President was 100% correct in his assessment of a foreign government. How long can it be before the Democrats who are in league with the Puerto Rican leftists and want to turn that island into the 51st state so their party can have two additional senators try to use this as the pretext for their next impeachment effort?

If these people didn’t exist, you could never make them up in a million years.

That is all.

Rudy Giuliani Drops Another Verbal Bomb at Mar-a-Lago [Updated]

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

As he entered a New Year’s eve party at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort Tuesday evening, Rudy Giuliani stopped to talk to several reporters. During the course of his two-minute discussion with them, he laid out the high points of what he says was an organized plot by “the highest levels” of the Obama Administration to literally loot the Ukraine for millions during the Obama presidency.

Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney, has spent the better part of the last year investigating the activities of Joe and Hunter Biden, along with other Democrat luminaries, as they relate to the Ukraine on behalf of President Trump. Below is a clip of his interview followed by a transcript:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here is the transcript of the Mayor’s remarks:

Reporter: You just got back from Ukraine. What did you do?

Giuliani: Well, a lot of things I learned but I can’t reveal yet. What I’ve learned is that the corruption in Ukraine is vast, it’s extensive, it highly involves the Democratic Party – not just in 2016, but for many years. And one of the reasons they’re doing this impeachment is when the full scope of what happened in the Ukraine comes out, there are going to be an awful lot of Americans who participated in the Ukrainian corruption.

In fact, we shouldn’t call it ‘Ukrainian corruption,’ we should call it ‘American/Ukrainian corruption.’ The Bidens took millions of dollars, laundered out of the Ukraine, and the only reason they’re getting away with it is because you in the press protect them, and the prosecutors are afraid you’re gonna criticize them. That’s a double standard that has to end.

Reporter: Well, tell us what you found out.

Giuliani: Well, I’m not gonna tell you what I found out until I have a proper forum to do it, but it’s devastating.

Reporter: What’s that forum? Would that be in front of the Senate?

Giuliani: We will figure out the right forum, and it will come at the right time. I don’t have all the evidence yet, I just met with a new witness just yesterday. [crosstalk with reporter] I can’t tell you who I met with. This is expanding, it will turn out to be a series of criminal acts, it will involve the highest levels of the Obama Administration, and it’s the reason why the Democratic Party is in panic. 

What they did to the Ukraine…[shakes his head several times] is embarrassing…

Reporter: Would you testify in the [Senate] trial?

Giuliani: I would testify, I would do demonstrations, I’d give lectures, I’d give summations, or…[removes glasses] I’d do what I do best: I’d try the case. I’d love to try the case.

Reporter: Are you telling us you are going to try the case?

Giuliani: Well, I don’t know. I don’t know if anybody would have the courage to give me the case. But if you give me the case, I will prosecute it as a racketeering case, which I kind of invented, anyway. 

So, it’s been 30 years ago, but let’s see if I can still do it.

[End]

For those who may not be aware, as the lead U.S. Attorney at the Southern District of New York, Giuliani became the first to successfully prosecute a case under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute. Giuliani used those laws to bring down a series of prominent mob bosses. No one better understands a racketeering operation when he sees one that Mr. Giuliani does.

The corrupt news media will of course continue to smear Giuliani as just some old crank spreading false rumors about political enemies, or even worse, as a guy running his own racket, as MSNBC did in early December. Remember one of the first things you have to know about Democrats: Projection is their favorite tactic. They always, without exception, accuse Republicans of the same wrongdoing they are themselves guilty of doing.

The entire Ukraine-focused impeachment scam is nothing more than a massive case of Democrat projection, accusing President Trump of the very ‘quid pro quo’ shakedown that we have Joe Biden admitting on video to doing. Giuliani has spent the better part of the last year accumulating evidence against Biden and other Democrats, and is now willing to testify about what he’s found.

The only questions at this point are:

  • Will the GOP-controlled senate allow him to testify?; and
  • Will Giuliani be able to remain alive long enough to do so?

After all, as we have seen so many times now, those who hold information damaging to the interests of prominent Democrats – or of prominent RINOs like John McCain, who had his own dealings in Ukraine – seem to have a very, very hard time avoiding “suicide”.

That is all.

UPDATE: Just after I posted this piece, the following news broke:

Rudy is not the only person investigating this looming enormous scandal.

How the Coup Plotters Have Ensnared Themselves in a Trap of Their Own Making

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

I’m old enough to remember when MSNBC’s fake on-air talent was condemning others for spreading conspiracy theories. – There really are no depths to which MNSBC and CNN will not plumb in order to give Deep State enemies of the people a paid microphone on their fake news programs.

The latest hired contributor at MSNBC is the sleazy ex-U.S. attorney Andrew Weissman, otherwise known as the guy who really ran the Mueller Witch Hunt and wrote the Mueller Report. Appearing with fake host and former George W. Bush adviser, the truly demented Nicolle Wallace on Friday, Weissman made it clear that, once the current Democrat/media Ukraine narrative has crashed and burned in spectacularly failed fashion, the Deep State coup plotters plan to go right back to pushing their spectacularly failed Russia Collusion conspiracy theory.

Asked by Wallace about the alleged call between Ambassador Gordon Sondland and President Trump, which supposedly was placed on Sondland’s unsecured cell phone in a Kiev restaurant, Weissman speculated that it’s all part of a grand conspiracy by Mr. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to fix the 2020 election!

I swear I do not make this stuff up:

“You know that call is going to be monitored by the Russians… Do you care about the Russians having it?”

“Why weren’t the president and Ambassador Sondland worried about the fact that the Russians would undoubtedly in Ukraine be able to hear this conversation?” he then asked.

“If your thinking is ‘I don’t care because the Russians will be siding with me in the 2020 election,’ then you’re all on the same team,” the former Mueller prosecutor hypothesized.

So, there you have it, folks: The Democrats and their willing media co-conspirators signaling their plans for the next chapter in their never-ending coup d’etat efforts. No doubt they already have folks at Fusion GPS, Crowdstrike and Christopher Steele – along with some high-powered law firm through which they can launder all the money – signed to contracts to assist in the next effort to frame a President of the United States.

This latest revelation by one of the leading figures in the endless series of coup plots goes back to the question posed here at the Campaign Update on November 10: How Does the Never-ending Coup d’etat End?

Of course, the better question to ask is, does this never-ending coup d’etat effort ever end? The answer to that is obviously a resounding “NO.” It will just continue, morphing into the next false narrative even as the previous narrative crashes and burns, becoming increasingly shrill, careless and violent as time goes on and the plotters’ frustrations mount.

This is a game the Democrats can play with America’s very existence since they control 95% of the corrupt national news media, and it is a game they feel they must play since Donald Trump’s very presence in the office of the presidency threatens to expose and destroy the continued ability of the DC Swamp denizens to fleece the nation – and other nations, as Quid Pro Joe and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter blatantly did in Ukraine and China.

Make no mistake about this: Donald Trump is going to be re-elected next year in what is shaping up to become an epic electoral college landslide. He is going to be President of the United States of America for five more years, and the never-ending coup d’etat will continue for the duration, and even after he has left office.

The simple fact of the matter is that the coup plotters and their media co-conspirators have no choice now. They’ve come this far and completely exposed themselves to anyone who is paying attention. Even if the Democrats wanted to chuck it all and try to focus on actually doing real government stuff, they are completely bankrupt of any policy ideas that are not already proven failures.

Add that to this new reality: The Republicans are suddenly, finally starting to strike back. We now know the Horowitz Report, as timid and white-washing as it no doubt will be in its findings, will be released on December 9. We know that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham continue to expand the scope of their own investigation into the origins of the never-ending coup. And we know that Senate Republicans are gearing up to mount a long and aggressive Senate trial effort once the House sends over its inevitable baseless articles of impeachment, with even Lindsey Graham suddenly sending out letters and demanding all sorts of information from the State Department.

Thus, even if the Democrats wanted to bring the coup plot to a screeching halt, the inertia they’ve created with their Russia Collusion and Ukraine hoaxes now makes that impossible to achieve.

How does the never-ending coup end? It doesn’t, because the Democrats and their willing, corrupt media co-conspirators have ensnared themselves in a trap of their own making.

That is all.

Democrat Impeachment Circus Finally Makes it to the Big Top

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Yeah, neither am I. – Another day, another stock market record. The NASDAQ closed at its latest all-time record high on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average also closing unchanged at its all-time record high level. The Trump economy just refuses to cooperate with the Democrat/Media effort to talk the nation into a recession before next year’s elections.

The economy and stock market are doing so incredibly well, in fact, that the Democrats simply must impeach President Donald Trump. – The amazing prosperity and record levels of low unemployment achieved by the Trump economy has the Democrats so upset that they believe they have no choice but to impeach the President. No, I’m not kidding in saying that. That really is the case here.

San Fran Nan, Bug-eyes Schiff, Jabba the Nadler and the rest of the Democrat “leadership” understand that, when an incumbent president is running for re-election to a second term, that election pretty much always turns on the relative health of the economy. Voters tend to vote their pocketbooks, and when their pocketbooks are filled thanks to their being gainfully employed, they don’t tend to be in the mood for a radical change in the White House.

Let’s be honest: If the Democrats are offering nothing else to the voters with their lineup of carnival freak show presidential contenders, they are offering radical change, and not for the better when it comes to the economy. From Elizabeth Warren to The Commie to Preacher Pete to Quid Pro Joe, what they are offering to the voters for 2020 would well and truly take the nation to economic ruin like it has never seen before. There is not enough money on the face of God’s green earth to fund the $92 trillion Green New Deal, much less Medicare for all, free tuition, and all the other tons o’ fun free stuff these nitwits are using to try to buy the votes of the naive and the just plain stupid among us.

Given this stark reality, Democrat poo-bahs know they must do everything they possibly can to make the 2020 election a referendum on something, anything other than the economy. So they concocted the dumbest fake impeachment plan in U.S. history, a plan to hype and mis-characterize a July 25 phone call between the presidents of the U.S. and Ukraine, a plan to turn a perfectly valid demand by the U.S. for the Ukraine to investigate clear and unambiguous corruption by a former U.S. vice president and his son into some sort of mob-style blackmail scheme.

The plan is to “dirty-up” President Trump with a phony scandal to such an extent that his amazingly resilient public approval numbers fall into the 30s range, based on the reality that they cannot hope to defeat him next year unless that happens. San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes thought they could achieve this goal by holding Soviet-style interrogations of witnesses in the basement of the Capitol and strategically leaking only the damaging parts of their testimony to their willing accomplices at the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN.

But that tactic failed miserably just as all their other tactics over the past three years have miserably failed. So, today they’re taking their deceitful carnival side show right out into the Big Top with nationally-televised hearings featuring bureaucrats no one’s ever heard of whining about the disagreements they had with the foreign policy constitutionally set by the President of the United States.

Even in this new phase, the despicable Dems are hilariously hamstrung by their own mendacity. They can’t call the fake whistleblower, Eric CIAramella, whose fake, hearsay complaint served as the kicking off point for this entire fantasy play. They can’t call this deep state spy/leaker because he’d either have to commit perjury or admit to all of his coordination with Bug-eyes and his staff in writing and filing the complaint.

And what of the highly-publicized and promoted Alexander Vindman, the Obama holdover at the NSC who showed up to his basement interrogation wearing his dress uniform for the TV cameras in clear violation of the U.S. military code of conduct? Vindman’s name is mysteriously nowhere to be found on this week’s witness list. It turns out that, despite Schiff’s strategic leaks of small portions of Vindman’s tesimony, the deep state embed actually did not do well at all under cross-examination by GOP Rep. John Ratcliffe, and Vindman’s hothead lawyer came across as the bad guy character from an episode of Ally McBeal. So Vindman obviously needs more coaching time, and perhaps also a new lawyer.

Curiously on the witness list for Thursday is ex-U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who we know already committed perjury during her own basement testimony. This Obama holdover was so corrupt that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky actually asked President Trump to get rid of her. But, being an Obama appointee, she is no doubt willing to say whatever San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes want from her, so they’re putting her up there despite her previous perjury.

I won’t be obsessing over these public hearings today because I have better things to do with my time, like trim my fingernails and vacuum the spare bedrooms, and I hope you won’t either.

Because at the end of the day, this is just a show. It’s just an episode of ‘Seinfeld’: A show about nothing, only without the entertaining parts.

That is all.

What Everyone Should Know About Alexander Vindman

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

Here are some things to understand about Alexander Vindman, the mid-level NSC flunky who the Democrats and their media toadies are trying to portray as the second coming of Audie Murphy in the wake of yesterday’s testimony before Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style inquisition:

– Mr. Vindman served his country admirably, rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel and earning a Purple Heart while serving in the Iraq War.

– He was born in Ukraine and speaks the language fluently. He and his twin brother emigrated to the United States in 1979, when they were 3 years old.

– He is most likely the so-called second “whistleblower,” who was much-ballyhooed by the media for about 48 hours several weeks ago before his statement was disappeared from the news like a favorable Trump poll. In that role, he has most likely been coordinating with Schiff and his hired Lawfare staff for many weeks now, waiting patiently for the cue to play his role in this ongoing DC Swamp Kabuki Theater production.

– He never wears his uniform to work. His wearing of the uniform on Tuesday was part of Schiff’s careful choreography of this whole drama, an attempt to lend credibility to an obviously politically-motivated hack. It’s the kind of stuff we regularly see in third-world military coup d’etat efforts.

– While serving at the NSC, he had numerous contacts with foreign agents, including the very sketchy attorney Marcus Cohen, who poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into the campaign of now-Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, in the hopes of being appointed to a high-level position within his administration.

– While Vindman’s military service is honorable, in testifying on Tuesday he was disobeying a direct order from his Commander-in-Chief. That is not honorable.

– During his testimony, Adam Schiff directed Vindman to refuse to answer questions from Republican members of the committee in order to protect Vindman from incriminating himself. Again, exactly the sort of stuff we regularly see taking place in banana republic coup d’etat efforts.

– Also during his testimony, Vindman apparently admitted to leaking the contents of the President’s classified call to several people, almost certainly a crime.

– The questions Schiff was most concerned about had to do with the identities of the people to whom Vindman had leaked the contents of the call. Again, most likely a felony under U.S. law.

– Despite the clear admission in his published opening statement that the published transcript of the call is accurate, Vindman also testified that he had actually made efforts to force changes to be made to the transcript in order to better fit his and Schiff’s narrative.

What we see with Vindman and Schiff’s other politically-motivated witnesses is the reason why Schiff and Pelosi have insisted in running this Soviet-style process behind closed doors, and why they can never allow the Republicans to have full rights to issue subpoenas and publicly question witnesses in this process. It is why the “resolution” the Democrats are ostensibly planning to vote on tomorrow – appropriately on Halloween – carefully preserves Schiff’s ability to shut down questioning and determine who can testify.

This is not an impeachment, folks – even Pelosi and Schiff admit that. This is a coup d’etat. It is simply a continuation of the efforts to bring down Trump that started way back in the Winter of 2015 at the Obama DOJ and FBI, and most likely the Obama White House itself. This latest episode basically amounts to the 10th or 12th act in the longest theatrical production in the history of the Deep State, with the fake news media faithfully playing the role of the Amen Chorus.

Alexander Vindman was just this week’s special guest star, all dressed up in his costume and playing his part to the max. Who knows what swamp skunk or snake Schiff and Pelosi will put before the nation next week.

One thing we know for certain: The Democrats at this point are in this all far too deep to ever pull back without committing voluntary political suicide. They have no choice now but to continue playing it all out until the bitter end. If you think they would hesitate for a moment before resorting to outright insurrection and widespread violence to maintain their power, you haven’t been paying close enough attention to what they’ve already been doing.

Be careful out there.

That is all.

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s been obvious from the start, hasn’t it? – It’s always been about the server, folks; it has never been about any “quid pro quo,” which President Trump manifestly did not engage in during his July call with Ukraine President Zelensky. That’s what the Campaign Update told you on September 25, about an hour after the transcript of the call had been made public:

Here is the passage that really has the Democrats in their current panicked frenzy:

“I would like for 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. I think you are surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole thing ended with a very bad performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance. But they say a lot of it started with Ukraine.”

This entire charade that the Democrats, their media supporters and disloyal RINOs like Mitt Romney are staging right now is about using the false “quid pro quo” nonsense to distract the public away from focusing on the reality that officials in the Ukraine were heavily involved in the effort to help the DNC and the Clinton Campaign fix the 2016 presidential election. I won’t go through all the details behind that here – go re-read that Sept. 25 piece if you need a review of them.

All of these bad actors are in a panic because they fear that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, acting on intelligence handed to them earlier this year by Rudy Giuliani, are getting close to gathering a critical mass of evidence to prove the Ukraine connection.

This is why you see today’s media/Democrat frenzy coming out of Mick Mulvaney’s presser from yesterday, which can be viewed in its entirety at this link. This is an effort to distort Mulvaney’s reference to the server as an admission the Trump White House was withholding U.S. military aid to Ukraine in order to get foreign help in influencing the 2020 election.

This is abject, smelly horse sh*t.

What Mulvaney in fact said is that the Administration was delaying those funds until it had assurance that the newly-elected Zelensky government is keeping its promise to clean up the rampant corruption in that country. A big part of that is to investigate the former government’s active efforts to influence our 2016 election in support of the Pantsuit Princess and the Democrat Party.

Here is why that is a perfectly proper, even mandatory thing for the Trump Administration to do:

  • The U.S. relationship with Ukraine is structured through a series of treaties;
  • The U.S. provides military aid to Ukraine under the terms of one such treaty;
  • The U.S. also has another, anti-corruption treaty with Ukraine which requires that countries to cooperate in rooting out and punishing corrupt acts by officials from both countries;
  • The U.S. also has this major law called the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act that prohibits the kind of clear influence-selling actions committed by Joe Biden and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter.
  • Thus, the White House and the Department of Justice have a clear and unambiguous legal obligation to coordinate with Ukraine to root out the source of that country’s corrupt efforts to influence our 2016 elections, and if withholding military funding becomes necessary in order to convince the Ukraine government to cooperate, that’s just fine.

As Mulvaney said during his presser, we do this sort of thing all the time in our relationships with countries all over the world. Yes, Barack Obama just loaded up billions in cash into military cargo jets and shipped it willy-nilly to corrupt governments like Iran’s, but that is not the way any of this is supposed to work under the law, and if Republicans in congress weren’t such gutless wonders they’d have impeached Obama over that action.

Look at it this way: Robert Mueller and his gang of Gestapo thugs wasted $35 million or so in a supposed effort to investigate alleged corruption in the 2016 election. Unfortunately, they only looked at one side of the equation, and stayed carefully away from anything having to do with Ukraine and copies of the DNC server that the Comey FBI failed to even investigate.

Now, the Democrat/Media/RINO Axis of Propaganda wants to convince you that the efforts by Barr/Durham/Giuliani to fully investigate the other side of the equation is somehow improper. They need you to believe that, because if the truth ever comes out, they’re all in deep doo-doo. The Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel sums it all up very succinctly in this clip:

So remember: Regardless of all the distractions the Axis of Propaganda throws at you every day, their panic is really all about the President’s reference to the server on his call with Zelensky. That’s the real origin point that led to the last three years of fake “Russia collusion” hysteria, and that’s what Barr and Durham are supposedly really investigating.

That is all.

Pelosi, Schumer and Hoyer Stage Another DC Swamp-Kabuki Theater Act

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

Elijah Cummings died. – I have nothing nice to say about him, so I will say nothing at all.  Here’s a link to the AP article about his death, which of course is a thoroughly one-sided, glowing review of his life. Somehow the Republic and Baltimore will survive.

San Fran Nan is sick. – At least, according to President Donald Trump, who issued the tweet below after Pelosi blew up yet again in a White House meeting and staged a very theatrical walkout along with Chuck Schumer and Steny Hoyer:

Hey, didn’t we already know this is a very sick – as in mentally deranged – woman? Pretty sure most of us did, and Schumer and Hoyer should be – but won’t be – roundly condemned for helping her stage this latest bit of DC Swamp Kabuki theater.

As a partial, taunting payback for this latest staged event, the President followed later with this hilarious tweet:

Naturally, the Democrat activist press corps slanted its reporting in coordination with the Democrat narrative, featuring Schumer’s laughable contention that “the Speaker kept her cool.” But as you can clearly see in the clip below, Pelosi is visibly shaking, a fake smile pasted onto her face and having a very hard time keeping her constantly-loose dentures in her mouth while Schumer was ranting.

For their part, the Democrats couldn’t even keep their own story straight. Schumer claimed President Trump called Pelosi a “third-rate politician,” while Pelosi said Trump had in fact called her a “third-grade politician.” Seriously? That’s why you walk out of what was supposedly such a crucially important bipartisan briefing on the goings-on in Syria right now?

And hell’s bells, regardless of which insult the President may or may not have uttered, everyone on the face of the earth knows that Pelosi is a shameless political hack, and being one has made her a fabulously wealthy person. So, what’s the big deal? Own it, Nan – being a despicable political hack is what defines your entire life.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke to the press gaggle later, after participating in the full meeting, saying that “”They left the meeting, other Democrats stayed and we had the most normal meeting you could ever have that was productive with the general of the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense and the president talking about how do we keep the homeland safe.”

Oh.

In case any of you might be inclined to take what the Democrats staged yesterday as a serious, spur-of-the-moment fit of pique, remember that this is not the first time they’ve created this exact scenario as a means of trying to fire up their lunatic Twitter Outrage Mob base. This is just another Alinsky-style event, a part of their ongoing coup d’etat effort designed to try to lower the President’s public approval ratings by portraying him as an unstable madman occupying the White House.

It is no coincidence that this piece of choreography came on the same day that the President’s approval rating in the Rasmussen survey once again reached 50%. It also came just a day after Pelosi had to cancel a planned formal impeachment vote of the full House because she simply doesn’t have the votes in favor of making that move, and if she forces it, she dooms her 35 or so Democrats who represent traditionally-GOP districts.

It also took place on a day during which news came that Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style basement interrogations of witnesses like Ukraine Envoy Kurt Volker are not yielding the results the Democrat coup plotters have hoped for:

[excerpt from interrogation]

Schiff persisted. “And when that suspension of aid became known to that country, to Ukraine, it would be all the more weighty to consider what the president had asked of them, wouldn’t it?”

“So again, congressman, I don’t believe — ” Volker began.

“It’s a pretty straightforward question,” Schiff said.

“But I don’t believe the Ukrainians were aware that the assistance was being held up — ”

“They became aware of it,” Schiff said.

“They became aware later, but I don’t believe they were aware at the time, so there was no leverage implied,” Volker said.

[end]

Oh.

So, as we have seen time and time and time again from these Democrats and their media hack toadies, when the facts on the ground don’t support the narrative they are pushing, they stage a media event to distract the public’s attention. It’s a despicable tactic, one that undermines the stability of our society, and the constant progression of this kind of false-flag display pushes us closer to outright civil conflict with every passing day.

All of which makes it perfectly reasonable for the President to speculate that Pelosi “just plain doesn’t like our great Country.” The proof of that slaps us in the face on a daily basis.

That is all.
