Good Wednesday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president greets the Vice Premier of the People’s Republic of China
- President Trump participates in a signing ceremony of an agreement between the United States and China
- The president has lunch with the Vice Premier of the People’s Republic of China
- President Trump meets with the Secretary of Defense
So there was a debate last night…
As usual, I didn’t not watch the debate. We all know where these folks stand on the issues and it’s infuriating watching the “moderators” give the participants a pass on their fantasy policies of unicorns and chocolate castles with marshmallow moats for everyone. If you want some takeaways, the DNC surrogate The Hill has this one and DNC surrogate Politico also has one.
I would like to mention one thing that struck me as particularly noteworthy: Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) announced pre-debate that “she would take executive action to cancel most student loans, vowing to sidestep Congress to accomplish a progressive goal.” Now we’ve been watching for three years as the Democrats and the corporate media PR machine shriek and tantrum any time Trump uses his executive power. In fact, one of their “impeachment” articles claims that Trump has abused his power so I was surprised (not really) that we didn’t see a five alarm fire when Warren was articulating her proposed executive power plans.
Flynn wants to withdraw guilty plea
“The prosecution has shown abject bad faith in pure retaliation against Mr. Flynn since he retained new counsel,” Flynn’s attorneys wrote in the filing. “This can only be because with new, unconflicted counsel, Mr. Flynn refused to lie for the prosecution.”
So there’s that and then there’s the part where the FBI told Congress Flynn didn’t lie to the agents who
set him up interviewed him. “We also told the highest levels of DOJ that we had been briefed by the FBI that Flynn didn’t lie to the FBI,” said Rep. Devin Nunes, ranking member of the HPSCI on FNC last night.
I hope his motion is granted.
New “BOMBSHELL” evidence in Democrats’ impeachment ruse
The House Democrats, who have been working furiously to find some incriminating evidence on Trump have turned over some hyped up mish-mash evidence they will send to the Senate. If you want to know why Nancy was dragging her bloated feet on sending over the impeachment articles to the Senate, here is your reason. She was buying time. Because this isn’t a serious and lawful impeachment process but a political tool to damage Trump’s re-election, she had to rush the impeachment process so the Democrats could “impeach” the president. That’s why the articles are for silly, made up charges and not crimes. But now, the Democrats have to come up with something that that their media terror proxies can try and sell to the public once the Senate trial starts.
The Democrats mish-mash is “text messages and hand-written notes from an indicted Rudy Giuliani associate that add more details about the push for Ukraine to announce an investigation against Trump’s political rivals.”
Here’s how CNN described the new BOMBSHELL mish-mash:
The documents show how the associate, Lev Parnas, sought to set up a meeting between Giuliani and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and connect with members of his government. The records also add more details about the push by Giuliani to seek the ouster of the then-US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.
The House panel made some of the documents that Parnas provided public on Tuesday, including a letter from Giuliani to then-President-elect Zelensky requesting a meeting as the President’s personal attorney, in which Giuliani said he was working “with the President’s knowledge and consent.” There are also text messages that show Parnas’ communications with members of Zelesnky’s aides where he pursued a meeting between Zelensky and Giuliani and provided negative information about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
The text messages provided show exchanges with former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, who provided Giuliani with unsubstantiated [LOL] allegations against the Bidens last year, pushing for the ouster of Yovanovitch. In the texts, he suggested that he wanted Yovanovitch removed if he was going to provide allegations to Giuliani about “B,” which could be a reference to Burisma or the Bidens, saying, “If you don’t make a decision about Madam — you are bringing into question all my allegations. Including about B.”
The documents also include a hand-written note on stationery from the Ritz-Carlton in Vienna, Austria, that Bondy said was written by his client, which says: “get Zalensky (sic) to Annonce (sic) that the Biden case will Be Investigated.” There are also cryptic text messages suggesting that Yovanovitch’s movements were being tracked.
None of this illegal, especially because that cow Yovanovitch is suspicious and if your remember the call transcript, the Ukrainian President Zelensky also had some issues with Yovanovitch. From the transcript:
“On top of that, I would kindly ask you if you have any additional information that you can provide to us, it would be very helpful for the investigation to make sure that we administer justice in our country with regard to the Ambassador to the United States from Ukraine as far as I recall her name was Ivanovitch [SIC]. It was great that you were the first one who told me that she was bad ambassador because I agree with you 100%. Her attitude towards me was far from the best as she admired the previous President and she was on his side. She would not accept me as a new President.”
I think he got his prepositions mixed up here, he is clearly referring to Yovanovtich because the Ukraine ambassador to the U.S. was anti-Trump op-ed writer Valeriy Chaly at the time of this phone call. There was a new ambassador appointed by the Ukraine as of December 2019. And why would Yovanovitch not accept the new president or not be on “his side?” That’s not her job, her job is diplomacy not deciding whether or not to accept the new president. Very, very curious.
No doubt we need the 411 on this lady. Yovanovitch calls for investigation into ‘disturbing’ surveillance as ex-diplomats outraged over her treatment
Was former Ambassador Yovanovitch being watched in Ukraine? She wants that investigated following new evidence
