The Washington political horse show, specifically highlighting the rear end of a horse continues.

It’s always about impeaching President Trump, which has been tried before, without success.

His crime: he won the 2016 presidential election.

As soon as that was announced, and on the day after he was inaugurated when leftist feminists were marching in protest, impeachment was filed —without charges.

Then when Mr. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, charges were filed. But alas for the discombobulated, there was no “there” there. Mr. Trump had every right, as Mr. Comey said, to fire him.

But then the discombobulated, the upset, the confused, knew they had a solid case because they said he rigged the election.

Except they were wrong. Members of the “deep state,” the American intelligence community, and the Washington “establishment” had rigged the election. Because they hated Mr. Trump. Which was eventually discovered after a two-year investigation by Democrat-appointed super political prosecutor Robert Mueller.

Among items discovered were the politically biased Steele dossier, compiled by a former British agent, unlawfully used by the FBI (Mr. Comey, et al) to obtain spy warrants on Trump officials. All of which came to naught.

And so far none of the conspirators, including erstwhile Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who has a litany of crimes against America, have been tried or punished.

So there was anguish in Washington amongst the intelligence community and the establishment. But with hope always springing eternal, according to the song, they now believe they “have him” and can impeach him.

The major players continue to be Democrats, and Democrats socialists, particularly members of the “the squad,” are in the vanguard leading the charge. The prediction is like the other false charges, this too, will founder.

 Basis for the charge of impeachment this time is a transcript relating to Mr. Trump’s call to Ukraine’s president, in which he mentions a possible 2020 Democrat presidential challenger, former Democrat Vice President Joe Biden, and Mr. Biden’s son Hunter, 49, on page 4 of the 5-page transcript.

The transcript says Mr. Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into Ukraine’s role in efforts to interfere in the 2016 election. (There’s clear evidence Mrs. Clinton did just that.) But sticking to the nitty-gritty, Mr. Trump mentions that Mr. Biden, when vice president, had stopped an investigation, and possible prosecution, of Hunter, by openly threatening to withhold $1 billion in American loan guarantees if the Ukrainian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, wasn’t fired.

A video (courtesy of the New York Sun) shows Mr. Biden bragging at the Council on Foreign Relations, saying:

“I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee.

“I had gotten a commitment from [President] Poroshenko and from [Prime Minister] Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t. So they said they had — they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to — or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, ‘you have no authority. You’re not the president.’”

“The president said — I said, call him,” Mr. Biden replied, evoking, the CFR transcript notes, laughter.

“I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.’ I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in,’ I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch … [laughter] he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”

Burisma, Ukraine’s largest gas company, was paying Hunter $50,000 a month as a board member, only after the Obama administration began sending his father to Ukraine. He didn’t speak the language, he had no knowledge of the energy industry. But his last name was Biden.

If there was no potential wrong doing, why did his father demand that Mr. Shokin be fired?

There was no quid pro quo — something for something.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has been horseshoed into calling for an official inquiry into impeachment. Where it will probably go no where. Because there is no “there” there.  

Ah, but pleasing the radical left, Mr. Biden’s presidential bid has been torpedoed. He has been sacrificed.

For the Democrats , there is only one kind of legitimate Presidential Election ; one where they win . Nothing improper for the administration to be investigating a potential political rival . Obama did it , they all do it . It is called opposition research . It is done at the Federal , State and local level by both parties . Fact of life , you get your information where you find it . No one is immune from background checks . The big deal here is , Biden and his family along with other well known political bad actors got caught . Yes , they do share the same political affiliation .



Oh , then there is the pesky little known agreement , signed and passed in 1999 , with The Ukraine Government . Yes , during the Clinton years . An agreement to ferret out corruption with cooperation , collusion if you will . This could well turn Mr. Trump from a zero into a Hero .



The National Review has an article , Inside the Mind of the Warren Voter , which is quite informative as well as enjoyable .

Forgot to post the Treaty Document # . 106-16 , 106th Congress , 1st Session . Signed by William J Clinton . Just so any doubters can look it up . Gotta keep those doubters up to speed and perhaps one or two of them will see the truth in all this nonsense .

Why hasn't Trumps attorney general and his FBI and his National security team not investigated and brought charges against Hillary and Biden?

Susan, his great protector, with Benghazi and "everything by the book" memo to file while they all beat it out the door is back trying to run interference for the total crooked lot of them. The "smartest guy in the room" and his army of boot lickers may prove they've been out-smarted.

I hope to God there is a deep state to keep us safe from Trump, his kids, and the rest of his incompetent bunch of grifters.







Nothing in this article is true. These are unproven conspiracy theories (aka lies).







One thing is true. The President leaned on a subservient nation to go after a political rival. The President asked Ukraine to reinvestigate the 2016 election based on a conspiracy theory. All his own intelligence agencies said Russia meddled in the election, but the poor bone spurred rich boy does not want to admit that. Why is that?


David Collins

Russia , Russia , Russia . What if it was Russia Benelli , what are you gonna do about it ? Obama told Putin to knock it off and am quite sure Putin couldn’t sleep for days worrying about it all . Could have been any number of bad actors playing with our system . Could even have been an inside job . Endless could be’s and might be’s . Good gosh folks , get over it and fix our porous election system. Most of all , get back to work . Do the job you were elected to do ant stop wasting time and money . My money . I would fire about 76% percent of the whole bunch , if I could. Heck, few would notice if I did .



Now , where do you get your information or were you next to Trump when he was on the phone . Bet you recorded both sides of the conversation and duly transcribed the whole thing . If not , then what you are saying is purely made up stuff . Just like all the rest of them.

Now everyone should know by now that Ds and some RINOs just do the Lord's work and "investigates" while deplorable Rs "dig up dirt". That "factual" dossier proves that doesn't it? How much did Hillary pay for it and where did the money come from? Boy, didn't somebody get taken for a ride? That was a nice photo that Tucker dug up wasn't it? Impeach that!

Which do you think is the best excuse for deferments bone spurs or asthma as a teenager but no problem playing football and baseball in HS and college. Then those great grades and copying another's work. What's it called? Pl-pl-pl and you can finish it. It was good enough to preclude competing in previous runs but we've changed over the years right? None of it matters but since you brought it up.
