Placeholder It's Your Call

In a haze

I can’t believe the thousands of children and teenagers who have been getting killed by guns and drunken drivers, and they’re all up in arms over 13 who died because of vaping? Could this be a distraction?

Reappraisal

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a Republican. I just bought some stamps with George H.W. Bush on them, and may I say he would be a godsend — any of the Bushes — compared to the nitwit we have in there now.

A real liar

I sure agree with the caller who was ashamed of the state of Missouri. I’ve been a citizen of Missouri my whole life, and I’m in my 70s. I, too, am ashamed of Missouri, to vote in somebody like President Donald Trump. He is a liar and a cheat and we’re going to find that out.

Appreciation

If I was a Vietnam vet, I would appreciate all President Trump has done for vets and our military.

Kids are fine

Yes, a lot of things are going wrong in our country, as one person said. But it’s not because we are not correcting our children when they do wrong. It’s because an angry old man thinks he alone knows how to fix everything, but he is incompetent. Our children are doing fine.

What freedoms?

I am no fan of Trump, but everyone keeps calling in and saying he’s trying to take their freedoms. What freedoms is Trump taking? He’s crude, and vulgar, and he makes phone calls and says things he shouldn’t, but I don’t see him taking freedoms. The previous administration under former President Barack Obama regulated us like crazy. That’s taking freedom.

Absolutely nothing

Once again, we have someone spouting off about how Trump is breaking laws and doing stuff illegally. And yet, they have found him doing nothing illegal. You get all kinds of accusations from the Democrats and their comrades in the media, but he has done nothing. On the other foot, we’re finding out that all this stuff with Ukraine that the Democrats are screaming about, they’re the ones that did all the stuff they’re accusing Trump of doing.

World problem

Something I can’t understand about this global warming debate, everyone’s jumping up and down saying, “We need to do this! We need to do that!” But the United States is not the problem. China and these other countries put all this in the air. We’ve cleaned this country up about 90 percent of what could be done. It’s not an American problem. It’s a worldwide problem.

This is a bombshell that isn’t getting much notice. But the top diplomat in Ukraine was texting in real time that we were withholding security funds to help with Trump's political campaign

You quote nothing but lies and hear say! Why?

In a *Fox News* column, Judge Andrew Napolitano says Trump has committed impeachable offenses and that his rhetoric of violence is "palpably dangerous."

Invoking the possibility of Civil War, he writes, is "a dog whistle to the deranged.

aj0201

“Trump also told Xi he would remain quiet on Hong Kong protests as trade talks progressed.”

Trump is so weak. America stands for nothing and falls for everything with him at the helm.

aj0201

There is no defending this. Out of 330+ million Americans, and all the crimes committed, trump is on the phone begging China to investigate one person: HIS MAIN POLITICAL RIVAL.

You cannot defend this. Period

“The former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine testified Thursday that he warned President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani that the information he was being provided from Ukrainian sources accusing former Vice President Joe Biden of corruption was not trustworthy, according to the Washington Post.”

Same as 2016, the Democrats do not have a reasonable candidate, and they will loose again!

“Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office: It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election.1 This is not a novel concept. Electoral intervention from foreign governments has been considered unacceptable since the beginnings of our nation. Our Founding Fathers sounded the alarm about “foreign Interference, Intrigue, and Influence.” They knew that when foreign governments seek to influence American politics, it is always to advance their own interests, not America’s. Anyone who solicits or accepts foreign assistance risks being on the wrong end of a federal investigation. Any political campaign that receives an offer of a prohibited donation from a foreign source should report that offer to the Federal Bureau of Investigation”. Ellen Weintraub, FEC Chairman, June 2019 and repeated today in light of the collusion attempt from Trump on the South Lawn today.

The Gainer

How many foreign elections has the USA been involved in? This goes on all the time, Trump wasn't the first and will not be the last....

Rudy admits to CNN he passed the packet of Ukraine conspiracy theories and attacks on a U.S. ambassador to Pompeo. "They (the State Department) told me they would investigate it."

Nancy Pelosi responds to Kevin McCarthy: "I received your letter this morning shortly after the world witnessed President Trump on national television asking yet another foreign power to interfere in the upcoming 2020 elections."

aj0201

“NEW: Two of President Trump’s top envoys to Ukraine drafted a statement for the country’s new president in Aug that would have committed Ukraine to pursuing investigations sought by Trump into his political rivals.”

aj0201

From “no collusion” to openly asking for collusion on the South Lawn. Cmon.

Hey, China can you find the missing Hillary e-mails? Actually, they probably DO have many of them due to Hillary's criminal mishandling of top-secret messages.

Poor ole Joe is being played for a sucker by his fellow democrats. Does he not realize that the democrats are eliminating him as a candidate by publishing what he did in Ukraine and China.

aj0201

What’d he do? The Ukrainians said he didn’t do anything. The corrupt guy there said he did as did Ghouliani. I’m sure Rudy was able to set his bias aside, right?

Biden appears on live interviews and definitely is displaying a malady - CRS. First he said in the past that he didn't discuss business with his son and then a couple days ago he said he had spoke to him several times about business.

aj0201

In 2016, he encouraged Russian interference. This past May, he said he’d welcome dirt from a foreign source. In July, he told Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. Today, he told China to dig up dirt on Joe Biden.



He’s what our Founders feared. When is enough enough Republicans?

B4

aj - This is no different than when Trump was campaigning for the presidency...the Dems dug up dirt about him unmercifully...were you bellyaching about it then?

aj0201

Did Obama or Clinton ask a foreign government to dig dirt?

B4

Ask the Russians...

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Certain groups of personnel within the ranks of the CIA, State Dept. and particularly the FBI during the Obama/Biden/Clinton/Kerry years could well be considered as agents of some entity foreign to the lawful interests of the U.S. Did they use people, some of them government employees or former employees, from foreign countries to "dig dirt" on the Trump campaign? No question about that, even the Mueller Report has entries confirming those facts.

aj0201

🤣🤣🤣🤣

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Many FBI elites have been fired, resigned, reassigned, demoted, or retired — or just left for unexplained reasons. The list is long and includes director James Comey himself, deputy director Andrew McCabe (21 years in FBI), counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok (22 years in FBI), attorney Lisa Page, chief of staff James Rybicki, general counsel James Baker, assistant director for public affairs Mike Kortan, Comey’s special assistant Josh Campbell, executive assistant director James Turgal, assistant director for office of congressional affairs Greg Bower, executive assistant director Michael Steinbach, and executive assistant director John Giacalone. In short, in about every growing scandal of the past two years — FISA, illegal leaking, spying on a presidential candidate, lying under oath, obstructing justice — someone in the FBI is involved.

REM541

Proof marty? Or just more BS?

Marty_Chuzzlewit

It is public knowledge, not a secret, that some two dozen FBI personnel were outright fired, resigned, retired, demoted, etc as a result of their involvement in damaging or trying to damage the Trump presidential campaign. Trump fired Comey for incompetence, McCabe and Strzok were fired on the recommendation of the IG.

aj0201

The turnover at fbi is due to the Trump requirement of absolute, undying fealty to Trump.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

The IG report concluded the offending FBI and DOJ personnel be fired for unprofessional conduct.

aj0201

If a whistleblower had come forward to say Trump had privately told Xi he should launch an investigation into the Bidens, it'd be a huge story. That's what Trump just did publicly

aj0201

He’s asking a brutal, communist regime, China, to investigate his fellow Americans.

Donald Trump is the most disloyal, un-American President we’ve ever had.

beelog

Adam Schiff---(America's Used Car salesman)--is barring Republicans from cross-examining Kurt Volker during today's interview. How "fair" of him. I wonder what he is afraid of? The Democrats are widening the investigation, wasting untold sums of money, diverting attention from "real" issues, as they pursue another Democrat boondoggle. Undermining the legitimate result of the 2016 election is a slap in the face to Trump supporters. It is extremely partisan and an attempt to remove a President simply because they don't like him and are still crying over the 2016 results.

aj0201

Hmmm. We should ask Moscow Mitch and Judge Garland what they think of such tactics.

beelog

But aren't Democrats the ones in favor of "fairness" and "transparency"???

aj0201

Both sides say that. Trump said he’d be the most transparent president ever.

Trump has done far better than Obama did!

My prediction is that when the "whistleblower" is revealed, we are going to find an extremely partisan person. Note: "Hearsay evidence" is not allowed in a normal courtroom.

aj0201

Note: impeachment isn’t a courtroom and Note: hearsay isn’t the issue here. The whistleblower just provided a report, not evidence. That doesn’t mean the evidence isn’t there.

Nor does it mean that it is there!

Such situations are always "fluid", changing constantly, particularly when dealing with the lunatic in North Korea.

“everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!”

Pretty declarative for something that is so fluid. You have even mentioned how much safer we are but fail to see NK is launching more tests now than ever.

Pay attention. Donald has been exactly accurate in each instance. Is that "stable Genius" something you see in the mirror.

No. Stable Genius is what he calls himself. He did so yesterday or the day before.

Absolutely nothing---Fake impeachment attempt. This is an attempt at a pre-emptive strike prior to the Barr report. Pelosi changed the impeachment rules, refuses to call for a vote. Looking for more evidence? She said she had "all she needed" for impeachment. Then why doesn't she call for a vote? This "impeachment" will be another boondoggle and another embarrassment for the Democrats.

The fired prosecutor at the center of the Ukraine controversy said during a private interview with President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani earlier this year that he was told to back off an investigation involving a natural gas firm that was linked to Joe Biden’s son, according to details of that interview that were handed over to Congress by the State Department’s inspector general Wednesday. A copy of Giuliani’s notes from his January 2019 interview with fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin in which he claimed that his “investigations stopped out of fear of the United States.” “Mr. Shokin attempted to continue the investigations but on or around June or July of 2015, the U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves. The notes also claimed Shokin was told Biden had held up U.S. aid to Ukraine over the investigation.

aj0201

“Mr. Shokin denied any misconduct, and said he was fired illegally. In an interview with a Ukrainian news service, he blamed his dismissal on Ukrainian “grant-eaters”—nonprofit groups seeking to curry favor with the West.

Anders Aslund, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C., said that Mr. Biden was making the same demands that other lenders to the Ukrainian government were making.

“Everyone in the Western community wanted Shokin sacked,” he said. “The whole G-7, the IMF, the EBRD, everybody was united that Shokin must go, and the spokesman for this was Joe Biden”

So, who to believe? The IMF, the G7 and many others or Rudy Ghouliani?

beelog

Rudy has the truth and will reveal it when he is interviewed.

aj0201

So Rudy alone has the truth and all those nations and the IMF got it wrong? Let alone that the person telling him these things is the person all these nations and the IMF is saying was corrupt and ignored corruption? And somehow, Rudy Ghouliani by himself came up with the truth??? 😀

A recent CBS poll showed that a majority of Americans favored an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. What the poll failed to show was that it overly sampled Democrats. The poll data showed it interviewed 124 more Democrats than Republicans. The percentage would change significantly if it was not biased toward Democrats. And that's why polls are to be taken with a grain of salt - they are inaccurate. Let the Dems continue with their bleating - their primary purpose is to damage Trump's reelection. They fail to see this little maneuver will damage them far more than it will Trump - they are desperate!

beelog

The Democrats, once again, have set themselves up to look foolish. They have nothing upon which to base an impeachment (which is why it is an "inquiry"--trying to dig up legitimate charges which won't happen). The main purpose is to deflect the impact of the Barr investigation.

Solution ?? There are problems with a wealth tax. It’s much harder to establish somebody’s wealth than their income, especially if it’s invested in privately owned companies or illiquid assets that don’t have a known market price. A wealth tax could also be difficult to enforce, which is why 12 countries had a wealth tax in 1990 but only 3 do today.v

K...….…..86 I'm one of those folks who has been pleased to see our economy improved veeeeeeery substantially from the hole Obumer had it in. I'm one who is veeeeery pleased to have a President who has taken down all of the horrible "deals" past Presidents have entered into that so many other nations took big advantage of. I'm one who thinks it pretty good to upgrade the attention the President has given our Veterans. Trump has made a lot of changes and I don't think you can find one that is not a real advantage for the average taxpayer. And, he has not advanced the programs Obumer installed to embellish the "tax-takers". No, I notice the employment under the 4% barrier and all other economic guides have been significantly improved. Our military is back on track...…..Now that is a real disappointment for Obumer………..whewwwww. Trump is doing well and we can sure hope it wipes out the socialists.

aj0201

Has the economy improved? Yes. From a “hole?” Not even close. The economy really just continued on course that was set during the Obama years. You cannot point to a single economic indicator that has made a serious gain as compared to its previous course since Jan 20, 2017. Not one.
