Impeachment: Another Democratic Fiasco

As the 2016 sabotage of the Sanders campaign contributed to the failure of the flawed HRC campaign against Trump whose election led to a campaign of illegitimate Russiagate allegations which were refuted by the Mueller investigation, those same partisan shills have now opened an ill-founded impeachment inquiry lacking a credible legal foundation and based on an allegedly anonymous whistleblower/CIA operative  – all meant to distract Americans from the forthcoming Spygate indictments which promise to further decimate the once omnipotent Democrat party.

The public circus of fomenting national disunity and turbulence has allowed the American public to recognize the Democratic party as it truly is, conniving corruption to the bone, promulgating an illicit behavior now threatening the very foundation of what remains of our democracy.

To make sense of the intervening events, one only need grasp that the CIA/FBI/DOJ pre-election efforts were meant to entrap low grade Trump campaign associates until they boomeranged once the election results were known.

Still unknown is if those law enforcement/intel efforts were independent of the DNC or if a level of collusion occurred.

Suddenly, there was an incoming duly-elected president whose staff had been infiltrated and surveilled as if it were a foreign power. Recognizing the need to cover a dozen or more collective butts served to deepen the panic to conceal the conspiracy as it set out to destroy the new President’s goal of peace with Russia.

If ever there was a time for all Americans of every political persuasion and ideology to rise above partisanship and stretch to a higher level of ethics and consciousness in support of the rule of law and a basic sense of fairness and justice, it is before us now.

As a life long Jeffersonian Democrat who once self identified as a ‘passionate’ Democrat and partisan activist, it is fair to ask who are these imposters who shanghaied the Dems away from defending the First Amendment and their working class roots into the bosom of Wall Street, the military industrial complex and the intel community?

Now forever entwined with the CIA and Deep State, the Dems await their karmic payback with the soon-to-be released IG report and later, the Durham investigation, party loyalists would do well to take their wrath out on the DNC and its Congressional leadership who have repeatedly and continue to lie to the country.

There is no doubt that the Democratic hierarchy were well aware that Mueller would bear no fruit to satisfy their lust for vengeance of the 2016 loss.

Not surprising it has been Tulsi Gabbard as the Only Democrat who understands the need to cease the fragmentation of American society. While not prone to hyperbolic overstatement, she suggests a more rational strategy, encouraging voters to do their job in November.

The party’s hierarchy, and apparently much of its base, however, prefer to follow its Reptilian instincts strewing divisiveness and animosity far and wide. (The R Complex purports to be the brain’s ancestral throwback to the dinosaurs with an aggressive, war-like demeanor as home to Obsessive Compulsive Disorders.)

In a complete turnaround from what might have been expected, Republicans appear in the unusual role as the aggrieved party as an assertive House contingent reminds us what a healthy opposition looks like as Senate Republicans more closely resemble an overly pious parade of Goody Two Shoes.

As the impeachment inquiry unravels, career State Department witnesses who have no direct first hand knowledge of a crime had already testified behind closed doors are now center stage repeating the same inconsequential blather.

As the inquiry drags on, it remains clear that there is no authentic WB but an individual who is a partisan snitch perhaps molded and created by the pompous Rep. Adam Schiff. who is known for Russiagate prevarications that never materialized.

He now claims “I do not know the identity of the whistleblower” even after his staff redacted the WB’s name from public documents.

Democrats on the Intel Committee who have refused to allow the alleged WB testify, are now struggling to provide credible evidence that Quid Pro Quo was committed and that such QPQ constitutes an ‘abuse of power” crime.

The IG Horowitz report regarding improper FISA Court applications may be public prior to Thanksgiving with a recommendation for criminal referrals including the possible declassification of documents that President Trump referred to AG Bill Barr some months ago.

The question has been whether applications to the FISA Court to approve surveillance warrants on Trump campaign personnel were knowingly based on flawed Steele dossier, otherwise known as malarkey.

It appears that those defective classified documents were then leaked to media outlets to provide credibility and justify the original application request to the FISA Court.  The question remains whether there was a conspiracy to mislead and lie to the FISA Court; whether and how the FBI treated the Clinton campaign differently than they treated the Trump campaign.

As if there was not enough factual data to question the basis for an impeachment inquiry, attorney for the alleged WB, Mark Zaid, sent out a series of tweets clearly revealing the unfolding impeachment strategy beginning ten days after Trump’s inauguration.

On January 30, 2017 Zaid tweeted that the “coup has started. First of many steps…impeachment will follow ultimately”

By July, 2017 Zaid used social media to proclaim that “I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president

And then later in July:

We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters”.

Of interest is a CYA-type memo from National Security Advisor Susan Rice regarding a January 5th White House meeting with FBI Director Jim Comey, Veep Joe Biden, President Barack Obama, and DOJ Deputy AG Sally Yates that followed a “briefing by IC leadership  on Russian hacking during the 2016 presidential election” when President Obama had “a brief follow-on conversation. The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.”

To the detriment of American civil society, it may be that upon release of the impending investigations, up to, including and beyond the 2020 election, significant numbers of the public may refuse to acknowledge the validity of its sweeping conclusions or attribution of blame just as many still live in denial that Mueller found no Trump Russia collusion.

It is stunning how a population easily absorbs the persistent programming of untruths, lies and distortions that become embedded as their own personal world view without ever contemplating the illusory nature of that reality.

Plato’s Allegory of the Cave  suggests an alternative path to understanding a reality that opens humanity to a higher consciousness of peace, prosperity, justice and Universal harmony – if only we are wise enough to pursue it.

Wow late night (here in UK) finish to the afternoon session, anybody watch it?

It seems that the glum faces on the democrats faces as Volker and Morrison pretty much destroyed the minions testimony.

I like it when the swamp critters have a public mudfest.

It is odd that both sides insist that Ukraine is at war with Russia!
Lol dem red army pussies.

Best bit for me was Nunes summary where he mentioned the British spy Steele, who kicked off the whole Russiagate fantasy.

Here’s hoping the blowback hits before polling day and dyed in the wool tory voters see they have been taken for mugs and vote with their conscience.

Having just finished watching the third session, what is the state of play?

Slowly slowly catchee monkey!

‘“So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?”

Trump tweeted, naming political opponents whom he frequently targets.’

Now for some real expert analysis:

I ask all on Off-G to consider what is the US national interest?
How does it operate?

Ask someone who has been at the shit end of it :

‘President Assad: You are absolutely correct, not only because they are looting oil, but because America is structured as a political system of gangs. The American president does not represent a state – he is the company CEO, and behind this CEO there is a board of directors which represent the big companies in America – the real owners of the state – oil and arms companies, banks, and other lobbies. So, in reference to Syrian oil, this is the expected result of the American regime, which is led by companies acting for their own interests.

Assad goes on to explain that to steal-the-oil was also the Nazi’s reason to invade the Soviet Union. He further observes:

[W]e can very simply liken American policy today with Nazi policy: expansion, invasion, undermining the interests of other nations, trampling on international law, international conventions, human principles, and others – all for the sake of oil. What’s the difference between this policy and Nazi policy? Can anybody from the American regime give us an answer to this question? I don’t think so.’

‘By pursuing further conflict with Russia the deep state of the United States wants to ignore the wishes not only of the U.S. voters but also those of the Ukrainian electorate. That undemocratic mindset is another point that unites them with the Ukrainian fascists.
Zelensky should ignore the warmongers in the U.S. embassy in Kiev and sue for immediate peace with Russia. (He should also investigate Biden’s undue influence.) Reengaging with Russia is also the easiest and most efficient step the Ukraine can take to lift its desolate economy.

It is in the national interest of both, the Ukraine and the United States.’

As for the Ukrainian immigrant hiding behind his uniform and the Ukrainian ambassador and the other players in the ‘coup is on, Impeachment’ conspiracy the Dems are threatening MAD if the IG’s report is published and charges are laid against the senior FBI conspirators.

The message is:

National Interests (Robber Barons) must come above the elected foreign policy!

Whitehouse must not interfere with the cfr (bipartisan) controlled State Department!

If you let Trump have his executive privilege to demand that the conspiracy be revealed and not impeach for working against a rival in the next election. Then that means Obama also was right to order the conspiracy against candidate Trump.’

The lie is that there is no equivalence between the actions of the Obama Administration – and Clinton – against a possible nominee and then candidate, in the election and the actions of the Trump Administration against a possible Democratic nominee next year!

Exposing the graft of Biden and the ‘exceptional US interests’ in the pillage of Ukrainian resources and Hillary’s cover up using Ukrainians is not equivalent.

So Hillary has been in London hiding from all these hard questions, for having ordered the conspiracy for HER benefit not Obamas. (No doubt helping Andy to help in diverting the Epstein charges against her and hubby).

Grubby, so so grubby.

Time to go see our own little tete a tete – has bobo been swotting up like a girly?

Trump is clearly guilty (of something or other, even if it is only winning an election he wasn’t supposed to win), and should be impeached.
After all, a Democrat politician said that a member of his staff told him that somebody else said he had overheard someone else saying something about Trump.
And if that isn’t cast iron, convincing evidence, then I don’t know what is.
So break out the popcorn and the choc ices, and enjoy the show.

It looks like Regime Change is coming home.
Why stage coups in Venezuela, Bolivia, or Iran, when you can save on the air fares and the bribes and just stage one at home instead?

There’s nothing like blood sports.
Good wholesome fun for all the family.

And this is a gift that will just keep on giving.
Maybe we will have a brand new, shiny Democrat president soon (you never know.)
Then the Republicans will unearth some sex allegation of 30-40 years vintage, or invent some completely new offence nobody has ever heard of before, like hurting somebody’s feelings.
The power hungry kritarchy will certainly cooperate.
Every subsequent president will be impeached, guaranteeing more hours of fun for all the family.

More fun than professional wrestling.

Russiagate, Ukrainegate, Brexshit, Trumpeachment… they’re all PSYOP soap operas that are not meant to succeed in the goals as presented in their surface narrative. They’re meant to be dragged on for as long as possible because their real goal is distraction.

Imagine no Brexit/impeachment pantomime: politicians and pundits alike would have to focus on actual policies! *shudder*

British justice.?

The judge who holds Assange’s life in her hands has a personal axe to grind. How could a person with such a clear conflict of interest be placed as his judge?

British justice is an international laughing stock. A risable joke. A shame and stain on the honour of every Englishman.

All the senile Democratic leadership and the rest of the party can really agree on, is their absolute hatred of Trump. On virtually everything else they disagree and are increasingly fragmented ideologically, with kind of ‘social democratic’ base alienated from a far more conservative party leadership.

Their focus, their obsession, with Trump, to the exclusion of everything else; is a massive strategic political mistake that will cost them dearly, including losing the next presidential election. They are, moron-like, repeating the same failed strategy they employed against Trump the last time around and the result will be the same crushing defeat.

The impeachment farce, I believe, was supposed to grab the attention of the over 100 million voters of the two war parties for a TV miniseries. All the while the U.S. regime attempts coups in Hong Kong, Bolivia, Lebanon, Georgia, Iran, and Venezuela. Israel is also free to massacre Palestinians and bomb Syria. Seems the two war parties leadership scheduled it this way.

Obama and HRC disgraced the Democratic party but be under no illusion that US deep state can manipulate the Republican club (again) equally. That whole two party tango is fake.
The only domestic spoke in their wheel is maverick Trump, hence this ridiculous impeachment try out.

I agree that the Dems obsession with Trump’s impeachment is both unfounded and unwise. But not because of any reliance on whistleblowers. Rather, once and if most Americans understand the context and history of American intervention in Ukraine, they will likely support Trump’s call for an investigation of Biden.
The mistake Trump made was to utter the word “Biden”. Had he not so dimly glimpsed the need to avoid the appearance of impropriety, Trump would merely have demanded that Zelensky agree to investigation corruption involving Americans in general. Trump can still, and should still, make this argument: that his intention was to call for an investigation of any and all corruption involving Americans. I think most Americans, assuming they understand the context of the American coup in Ukraine along with the slew of American carpetbaggers that came along for the ride (including but not limited to the Bidens), will ultimately side with Trump on this issue. Even most Democrats.
