Placeholder It's Your Call

Editor’s note:

Our editor’s note in Monday’s “It’s your call” incorrectly stated that the driver’s name was released and publicized in a fatal accident on Lovers Lane last week. That was incorrect. Police released the name of the victim, who was a passenger, but not the driver.

Who is it?

Here we go again — another investigation. I, personally, would like to know who the whistleblower is, just as an FYI. What do you think?

Figure it out

The New York Times says, “Rudy Giuliani is the world’s worst best friend.” Figure that one out. Shouldn’t take too long; a first-grader could figure it out.

Who’s in charge?

Is it me, or is our country run by a bunch of senile old, rich, white men? I happen to be a white Vietnam veteran, but I still have my faculties. These people running the country, I question. They sure don’t act like it.

Big red bias

We’re five weeks into the season now and it’s obvious there is a Nebraska fan working in the News-Press sports department. Nebraska is not all that popular around here. And by the way, the Oklahoma Sooners are the original, real Big Red.

Giuliani’s papers

Rudy Giuliani is waving papers around like a madman on television Sunday morning. If they are so important, where have they been? Buried in a secret, special security vault somewhere?

His men

All the major news outlets, the national ones, are saying “all the president’s men.” Does that mean he owns them? Evidently.

Hope for Missouri

I lived in Missouri my whole life, and that’s been a long time. But now when people ask me where I’m from, I’m ashamed. We voted a crook in office and are still defending him. We are the Show Me State. And when Missouri sees all the crooked things President Donald Trump has done, Missouri will do the right thing. I have hope for them.

Wake up

Where are the Republicans in the House and Senate that they’re letting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff get away with this project of theirs? Why don’t people wake up and learn something? The news won’t report it. Try listening to “Life, Liberty & Levin.”

A deluge

The flood of immigrants (encouraged by the Democrats) has overwhelmed the border resources. That is not the fault of border officials, it is the fault of the Democrats for urging these people to break our laws and enter illegally. As always, it is the Democrats who are responsible for this fiasco.

“As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the.People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!” Donald J Trump, Stable Genius

Dumdum doesn’t see the problem with his tweet.

I see that Rudy has lawyered up for his defense. Wonder why he did that, could he be worried?

aj0201

Stable genius, King of Israel, Second Coming Of God ——“WASHINGTON — The Oval Office meeting this past March began, as so many had, with President Trump fuming about migrants. But this time he had a solution. As White House advisers listened astonished, he ordered them to shut down the entire 2,000-mile border with Mexico — by noon the next day.



The advisers feared the president’s edict would trap American tourists in Mexico, strand children at schools on both sides of the border and create an economic meltdown in two countries. Yet they also knew how much the president’s zeal to stop immigration had sent him lurching for solutions, one more extreme than the next.



Privately, the president had often talked about fortifying a border wall with a water-filled trench, stocked with snakes or alligators, prompting aides to seek a cost estimate. He wanted the wall electrified, with spikes on top that could pierce human flesh. After publicly suggesting that soldiers shoot migrants if they threw rocks, the president backed off when his staff told him that was illegal. But later in a meeting, aides recalled, he suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down. That’s not allowed either, they told him”

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $125 million in the third quarter of the year, a presidential fundraising record. The pro-Trump effort said Tuesday that it has raised more than $308 million in 2019 and has more than $156 million in the bank. Republicans aim to use the fundraising haul to fight off Democrats' impeachment effort. Former President Barack Obama and the DNC raised just over $70 million in the third quarter of 2011.

aj0201

Fools and their money are soon parted.

Lawyers get expensive when you're a criminal. Trump will use the RNC to finance his legal bills like he has in the past. But they won't have enough. But on the lighter side I see where racist Grassley is breaking from trump, a little late to try and save his rear.

Prayers needed! The constitutional right to an abortion is almost certainly coming to an end — the only question is how long the Supreme Court’s new majority will take to kill it off. It’s not likely to be very long. TODAY, the Supreme Court will meet to decide whether to hear a case that could leave little, if any, of this right standing. The decision undercutting abortion rights could come as soon as next week, though it is more likely that the Court will wait until next June, when they typically hand down their highest-profile decisions, to come for Roe. But make no mistake, when the justices meet today for their first conference of the next term, the continued vitality of the abortion right is very much on the line.

Well that didn't take long, the Inspector General released a statement today debunking the conspiracy started the other day about the whistleblower laws being changed. Like always just blatant lies.

I have to chuckle at the posts of you anti-Trumpers. You must be desperate to spend even the early morning hours searching for something to post that will denigrate President Trump. In your foolishness, you fail to recognize that there are just as many articles that debunk your allegations. But don't let that deter you from wasting your time...and enjoy eating those nothingburgers!

Just a note...I can see aj's fingers itching to keyboard, "where's the proof"? His loneliness shouts out for interaction with someone; well, I'm not that someone and his Socratic discussion will have to be thrust on someone else. These are wonderful fall days and I will be enjoying them outside and in fellowship with my friends. Life is too short to foolishly waste it staring at a screen.

"Chicago might be a good move for you."



Thank you, Beelog. Chicago is always a good move. Oh, and by the way, It was great to hear from you after all this time. In support of your post, and may I encourage you and the Caller--and I am sorry about this brief window of time and this might seem a bit of a hike, but Chicago will be at the Adler Theater in Davenport, Iowa tomorrow. Check it out. There are seats remaining for between $30 and $100!

I spent a lot of time in Chicago, and a fond memory is seeing the after-game fireworks at the ball park from the bar atop the John Hancock building---I stayed in the hotel across the street. I spent a lot of time on Michigan Avenue, at the McCormick Center, and at O'Hare (sometimes Midway). I had some good times in Chicago. It was always amazing to fly into O'Hare, take the underground tunnel to the hotel, and not be outdoors again until I returned to KCI.

Colo

Hahahahaha. Bee just read a travel brochure for Chicago

aj0201

Some people struggle with being outside. Delicate people.

Hmmm. What underground tunnel goes from O’Hare to a hotel near the John Hancock?

Why do the conservatives always want those who oppose them in anyway always tell them to go away as if the are the arbiters of what makes a citizen a good citizen? Or could it be that they don't have any arguments based on facts and truth? Must be a very painful experience trying to spin the lies from Trump and the RNC as well as explain why you voted for and support a lying con man who is about to get his comeuppance. And before you try and spin the inevitable outcome from Impeachment. I ask at what point will people like you overcome your cognitive dissonance. Or at least you could maintain silence like one in you midst has. I would welcome an honest response declaration from him because I recognize that truth and honesty seem to rule in his life. I would be able to pick you out in a conservative riot/crowd. Yours would be the sign that reads "Spin Doctors Unite!"

A dnc operative? Why is it so impossible for you guys to think that someone just has concerns for what he/she sees in the White House on a daily basis? You said the same thing about the Mueller probe lawyers yet were never able to provide names of who those democrats were and how they had a particular bias against Trump.

mywagginisdraggin

It takes time for these bogus "investigations" to take place.. stay tuned

REM541

On I'm staying tuned.

mywagginisdraggin

if the whistleblower ONLY has 2nd or 3rd hand info, WHY does he/she need the protection..

there's gonna be a new dog and pony show...a spinoff of "the masked singer"...(the masked whistleblower) lol

“It is impossible that the whistle-blower is a hero and I’m not. And I will be the hero! These morons—when this is over, I will be the hero,” Giuliani told me.



“I’m not acting as a lawyer. I’m acting as someone who has devoted most of his life to straightening out government,” he continued, sounding out of breath. “Anything I did should be praised.”

I really admired Rudy in 2001. Boy has that changed.

aj0201

Curious, why wait until late 2019 to worry about corruption on the part of Biden if Biden had done what he did several years ago? Why now? Especially given that Trump had a friendly Congress for two years before?

morty

You can wait an eternity and Biden will still be innocent of the Trump witch hunt.

popski

Why wait until 2019 to worry about something Brett Kavanaugh allegedly did 20+ years ago?

aj0201

Rape victims often wait years before reporting on their rapist. Donald Trump is not the victim from what he alleges Biden did. Bill Cosby has several accusers wait many years. Harvey Weinstein as well.

But that’s a nice try at deflection popski.

popski

I think your point...and mine...was that both allegations are politically motivated. Oh...and LOTS of rape victims report immediately...so there's not a hard and fast rule about that.

REM541

Gee pops maybe because you would like to have good morally honest people in a lifetime position. But like trump you want someone that looks at everything thru republican glasses.

popski

Gee, REM...the last time I checked, Justice Kavanaugh was only accused...and his accuser's story had as many holes as a screen on your front door. Do I need to remind you that one is innocent until proven guilty?

REM541

Gee pop I guess you have heard of read about how the investigation was curtailed by the idiot in the White house. This was reported within the last two weeks.

"The FBI was informed of allegations that Kavanaugh, while drunk during his freshman year at Yale exposed himself to two intoxicated female classmates on separate occasions. The bureau did not interview more then a dozen people that said they could provide information." If you care to read real news and facts you will have to read real news sites which you claim are liberal. You could find the info but then what would you do? Admit facts of continue to lie.

beelog

Good point, Popski. Please remind AJ that the complaints against Kavanaugh turned out to be false, unverified.

aj0201

And the ones against Weinstein and Cosby turned out to be accurate. Time isn’t the issue in these cases.

aj0201

So if time passing was a problem in the Kavanaugh case, why isn’t it here? Why wait for nearly 3 years to investigate Biden? Never mind that Biden was pressuring the Ukrainians to get rid of a guy who WASNT investigating or prosecuting corruption. The US and other nation wanted MORE investigation into corruption, not less. So what, then, is the corruption Trump was looking for if not just digging dirt on a political rival?

popski

Keep in mind, aj...I never said President Trump's inquiry wasn't politically motivated...

aj0201

What’s the evidence that it is politically motivated?

REM541

Think 2020! Thought I add that aj, I'm sure they were stumped.

beelog

And he will again after 2020.

aj0201

Again Trump supporters. Do you agree with the President and Pastor Jeffress about the “Civil War like fracture” that they claim will happen if Trump is removed from office?

popski

I don't know if it's even something we need to worry about. President Trump won't be removed from office. That, my friends, is a fact.

aj0201

So are you good with the FACT that twice now he has engaged with a foreign country for help in getting dirt on a political opponent?

beelog

That is an "interpretation" of the call. Please explain why the President of the Ukraine is on the record saying there was "no pressure" during the phone call. If you want all the facts, there is one which should be included. In fact, it negates all claims from the Democrats regarding impeachment. The Ukranian President "was actually on the call" (not 2nd hand information) and says "no pressure". Response??

aj0201

The President asked him to investigate a political rival. You’re good with that?

popski

Isn't it too bad that we have to go to foreign countries to get information about some of our senior leaders committing criminal acts? Why aren't our own law enforcement/justice department folks finding that out domestically?

aj0201

Do you have someone in mind popski? Who committed criminal acts to be investigated in the Ukraine?

REM541

So are you saying, like we didn't already know, that the Republican controlled Senate cares nothing at all about a corrupt president. Please que Lindsy doing his little speech about restoring the honor to the presidency. But that was different right.

popski

Corrupt? Proof, please.

Colo

Pops.... Difference is that Hillary is Free... Biden is Free & the Pathological Lying Sexual Predator Traitor is Facing Dozens of Criminal Investigations

REM541

Gee pops just Google trumps lawsuits, heck last night on Newsmax they had an hour long show on the trumps getting busted for discrimination. What about all the times he got busted during his casino times. What about trump University, trump charity. You guys are unbelievable, the info is there but if you don't read it you won't have to come to terms with your ignorance.

just being the very nice republican that i am aj hahaha

mywagginisdraggin

i knew your answer would be a deflection, but that's ok

aj0201

No. Not a deflection. I have no problem answering that. The first thing to do is go after employers that hire illegals. Remove that as an incentive. Secondly, we provide a pathway for citizenship for DACA kids here now. Third once a person is deemed a refugee we help them find a job and get them working with the promise of citizenship in they remain productive and crime free. Last, we look to expand capitalism into the nation’s of Central America to start helping people have a reason to stay there.

REM541

But aj those are all reasonable solutions and not what the republicans want.

Nope. So many of them don’t want brown people around.

Anyone or anything that supports this pathological Lying Traitor can’t possibly be a nice person

popski

This has nothing to do, whatsoever, with the individual's skin color. It's their legal (rather "illegal") status that is in question. People who come here legally are widely accepted. Even "brown people" who came here legally are incensed at the idea of blanket amnesty. Sorry guys, but this is NOT a race issue. It's an issue of people who are ignoring and disrespecting our immigration law.

mywagginisdraggin

aj ... yayy let's start with Triumph Foods..
