Good Thursday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president receives his intelligence briefing
- President Trump participates in the Announcement of the Guidance on Constitutional Prayer in Public Schools
Democrat pallbearers limp impeachment articles over the to Senate
The House Democrats carried the sham impeachment articles over to the Senate in a prayerful and somber jamboree on Wednesday. Pelosi signed the documents, smiling and cheerily but also somberly and prayerfully as she handed out the pens she used to the 7 House manager dwarfs, presumably so they can auction them off for campaign cash money. Even the dummies at CNN thought the spectacle was a bit strange.
“At moments of celebration, when a president is signing legislation, when even sometimes, on a rare occasion, but it has happened when the House sends over a landmark piece of legislation. It was unusual to see that kind of ceremony and handing out the pens and smiling for a picture in this kind of situation where the House Speaker has bent over backwards to say publicly and privately that this is somber and no time for celebration,” said Dana Bash.
My opinion is that Cocaine Mitch should immediate hold a vote to dismiss to force these cowards on the record. Another move, one suggested by Andy McCarthy, would be to stop this sham and tell the Democrats they need to finish their investigation. McCarthy is referring to the ongoing investigation in the House and in particular the newly revealed “bombshell” documents from indicted Giuliani associate Lev Parnas. Why are the Democrats continuing their investigation? Because they want to keep drip, drip, dripping anti-Trump innuendo, supported by the Democrats proxy media forces. Writes McCarthy:
The charges are weak and the inquiry was needlessly short-circuited, so Democrats have continued investigating the premature allegations. Now they are publicly disclosing newly acquired evidence, with the promise of more to come. Transparently, their goal is to pressure the Senate not merely to conduct a trial but to complete the investigation that the House failed to complete — calling witnesses and gathering evidence, as if a trial were nothing more than an extension of an open-ended grand jury probe.
Senior administration officials say the president wants this over in 2 weeks. I think that’s about right if we can’t get it killed right out of the gate. “It is extraordinarily unlikely that we would be going beyond two weeks. We think that the case is overwhelming for the president and the Senate is not going to have any need to be taking that amount of time,” a senior official said.
“We don’t think that there’s going to be any need for witnesses in this trial,” the official said. “We don’t think the Senate needs to hear from any witnesses… the House is supposed to be able to come into the chamber and say ‘we have a case that we think stands up with what we have’.”

“Bombshell” witness and sketchy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas visits kooky Rachel Maddow
Earlier this week, the Democrats released the results of their desperate quest for Trump dirt by unloading some documents they got from indicted Guiliani associate Lev Parnas. According to the DoJ, Parnas “conspired to violate the ban on foreign donations and contributions in connection with federal and state elections. In addition, PARNAS and FRUMAN were charged with conspiring to make contributions in connection with federal elections in the names of others, and with making false statements to and falsifying records to obstruct the administration of a matter within the jurisdiction of the Federal Election Commission (“FEC”).”
It sounds like he is in trouble. I wonder what sort of agreements he might make soften his landing in the justice system? The indictments were made by the Southern District of New York, where James Comey’s daughter happens to be an attorney. I’m just point that out.
Parnas was spoke to nutter Rachel Maddow last night and made several accusations. He claimed that Trump knew “exactly” what was “going on” with the fantastical Ukrainian pressure campaign.
“He was aware of all my movements. I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani, or the President,” Parnas told kooky Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night. “I have no intent, I have no reason, to speak to any of these officials.”
Parnas offered no proof of his statement that Trump knew of his actions, whatever those were. Trump has denied knowing Parnas and his buddy Igor Fruman, but CNN wants you to know that “Trump has posed for photos with either Fruman or Parnas” and that anonymous acquaintances told the tabloid that “Fruman and Parnas had a private meeting with the President and Giuliani during a White House party in December 2018.”
FUN FLASHBACK: Rep. Devin Nunes files a $435m against CNN. Nunes is “suing over a November 22 report that Lev Parnas, the indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, was prepared to tell Congress that Nunes met with Victor Shokin, the former Ukrainian prosecutor, in Vienna last year to discuss “digging up dirt” on Joe Biden. Nunes says he never has met Shokin. He also denies that he took a trip to Vienna in December 2018 or that he communicated with Parnas.” In other words, Parnas is a liar.
Parnas also undermined claims about a sleezy derp statette Marie Yovanovitch being followed by a Guiliani operation. “He [Hyde] was either drunk or making himself bigger [more important] than he was. I didn’t take him seriously,” Parnas said, adding that he was “disturbed” by Hyde’s text messages.
Whatever claims this joker is making, the Ukrainians never “did” anything to get the aid nor were they in the process of doing anything before the aid was released so…what exactly “was going on?”

Governor Blackface bans guns at a public rally protesting gun control
Virginia’s Governor Northam, also known as Governor Blackface, has issued a state of emergency that would bar legally owned and possessed weapons from Richmond’s Capitol Square Friday to Tuesday because hate groups might be violent at rally supporting the Second Amendment. Now, when Blackface talks about hate groups, he is talking about American citizens who exercise the right to keep and bear arms not actual hate groups with a track record of violence like Antifa who are traditionally allowed to violently riot in liberal strongholds.
Virginia residents are protesting because the Democrats now have total control of the state and are licking their lips over the laundry list of firearms they are going to ban. Now I live in Virginia and sadly my rifles, pistols and shotguns were all lost in a freak boating accident shortly after the last election, but I sympathize with the gun owners.
Northam said at a press conference Wednesday that the decision is based on “credible intelligence” from “mainstream channels, both offline and online, such as alternative dark web channels used by violent groups and white nationalists from outside Virginia,” which law enforcement says have “malicious plans” that include storming the state Capitol building and stirring up violence at Monday’s rally.
“This includes out of state militia groups and hate groups planning to travel from across the country to disrupt our democratic process with acts of violence,” Northam said. “They’re not coming to peacefully protest. They’re coming to intimidate and cause harm.”
This is laughable but Blackfaces actions are a great GOTV for the 2020 election. Gun owners in VA are spitting mad over this. Keep your eye out for happenings at the rally.
MEOW: Democrat presidential hopefuls have a cat fight
Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are having a public cat fight. The dispute centers on a report that Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) told Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) that he didn’t think a woman could win the presidency. Sanders disputes the report.
“CNN reported yesterday that — and Senator Warren confirmed in a statement — that in 2018 you told her that you did not believe that a woman can win the election. Why did you say that?” Abby Phillip asked.
“Well, as a matter of fact, I didn’t say it,” Sanders sharply replied. “Anybody who knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States. Go to YouTube today. There’s some video of me 30 years ago talking about how a woman could become president of the United States.”
After the debate, the two socialists had a tense exchange. CNN has released the audio of the private moment. Why would they do this? You decide.
“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren said to Sanders as he reached out his hand for a handshake, which she did not reciprocate.
“What?” Sanders said while ongoing applause can be heard filling the Iowa auditorium.
“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren repeated.
“No, let’s not do it right now,” Sanders replied. “You want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion.”
“Anytime,” Warren said.
Before parting ways, the Vermont lawmaker fired back at his Senate colleague.
“You called me a liar,” Sanders told Warren. “You told me — let’s not do this right now.”
Tom Steyer who was creeping around the two felines trying to overhear the conversation and approached Bernie to say “hi” but was promptly swatted away.
I don’t know about you, but I’m rooting for injuries.
