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.

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.

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.

Image may contain: 2 people, people standing and text

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.

No Surprise Here: Fired Obama Ukraine Ambassador Likely Spied on Journalists

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

Um, hello, John? This is the IC, you know, the Intelligence Community? Yeah, that IC. Well, um, we’re just calling to let you know that it looks like the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine was illegally spying on you. Yeah, Ukraine. Um, ok, that’s all for now.  –  No kidding, the fired U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, appears to have been illegally spying on the activities of Solomon and other U.S. journalists related to their reporting on Ukraine and the activities of Quid Pro Joe Biden and his ne’er-do-well son, Hunter.

Solomon talked about it with Sean Hannity Wednesday night. Here’s the clip.:

Don’t have time for a transcript, but the key information here is that Solomon says he was contacted by someone from the Intelligence Community 10 days ago, informing him about “strange requests” being made for his personal communications by the U.S. Ambassador’s office while Yovanovitch was serving in that job, from which she was fired earlier this year. He is still awaiting more details about the full nature and extent of these inquiries.

Note that Solomon also provides a key reminder of a previous illegal spying episode that took place way back in 2003, when then-FBI Director Robert Mueller had to admit he and his evil minions at the FBI had also illegally spied on Solomon’s communications. Funny how Mueller’s name just keeps popping up in illicit activities like this.

But back to Ms. Yovanovitch, who was appointed to be the Ukraine Ambassador back in May, 2016 by – guess who? – then- President Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self. Note that date – May, 2016, the very month that James Comey, Peter Strzok and the rest of the DOJ/FBI coup cabal were conspiring to mock up their fake findings on the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Obviously, Ukraine, and the Obama Administration’s looting of it, was already a big concern at that time, and the cabal needed someone reliable serving out there as the “ambassador.”

According to a Wall Street Journal report of October 3, “President Trump ordered the removal of the ambassador to Ukraine after months of complaints from allies outside the administration, including his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, that she was undermining him abroad and obstructing efforts to persuade Kyiv to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, according to people familiar with the matter.”

Oh. In other words, even as late as mid-2019, Yovanovitch was serving as Barack Obama’s loyal foot-soldier, doing everything she could to prevent the truth about the Obama Administration’s activities related to Ukraine from coming out. This is not hard to figure out, is it?

In another clip, Devin Nunes, ranking Republican on the House Intel Committee, promises to question Ms. Yovanovitch about her actions when she testifies before Adam Schiff’s kangaroo court on Friday.:

“We also have concerns that possibly they were monitoring press from different journalists and others,” Nunes said. “That we don’t know, but we have people who are giving us this information and we’re going to ask these questions to the State Department and hopefully they’re going to get the answers before she comes in on Friday.”

Oh.

Of course, the Democrats will do everything they can to cover for the Obama loyalist, but she will have to answer questions from Nunes and other Republicans under oath, regardless. Just another opportunity for the commission of massive perjury for one more Obama minion.

It’s good to get all of these folks on record.

That is all.
