The left's fine statesman says we can't trust the voters

The left's fine statesman says we can't trust the voters


By: Vic Eldred  •  113 comments  •  5 hours ago  •  LOCKED
The man who famously lied about having evidence of Trump/Russia collusion has now told us that American voters cannot be trusted to determine the next election. Finally, it's out in the open! The man whom leftist news commentators have been swooning over all week has come right out and told us the reason for this impeachment scam. All credibility for arguments of the President trying to...
Jan 24 1:54pm @7.1 Russia interfered to help Trump - FACT.   Trump and gop have done nothing substantial to make elections more secure, and in fact Trump had forced Ukraine to help him until the dam burst.  So of...
Jan 24 1:50pm @6.6 "..." Nope, he was reiterating the FACT Russia interfered in 2016 to help elect Trump.  And Trump has been deferential and beholden ever since.

Their only defense on the merits is to claim that the president wasn’t concerned with smearing a Democratic rival but with fighting corruption. But that’s an absurd argument to make given that Trump never mentioned fighting corruption in general during his two phone calls with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — and given that, as my Post colleague Catherine Rampell  notes , he is...
Jan 23 7:08pm @2.1.14 No, you are projecting again.   These are my talking points. 
Jan 23 11:21am @2.1.11 I guess this is proof Fox isn't a news station (as if we needed that).  Only one reason they don't show it, and that is because they don't want their idiot viewers to hear anything but their...
Jan 22 7:01pm @2.1.6 Keep 'em ignorant.  Gop motto.
Jan 22 7:00pm @2.1.5 Bret Baier is showing the hearing.   'The five' show showed endless commercials and their defense of Trump and why dems are so unfair.  Not a bit of the hearing except the picture box in the...
Jan 22 5:33pm @2.1 Fox must think its pretty bad for them if they don't have the balls to SHOW THE HEARING!
Jan 22 5:33pm @1.1 Obviously not, take a look at Fox, they are presenting the defense instead of showing the hearing.  They don't want their stooges to hear the truth.

I've been watching and or listening to the impeachment prosecution , some, for the last two days, and it seems to me that they've got Trump wrapped up in a big bow and ready to send him up the river.  Dates, times, names, this is enough information to lock Trump up for the rest of his life, were this a criminal trial.  I think the jury would be out for about 20 minutes.  SO, everyone wants...
Jan 23 7:06pm @3.1.5 You aren't even watching the hearings if you still believe anything about the Biden/Burisma/Ukraine 'scandal' is anything except a gop wet dream.  That was dealt with today.

The White House doubles down on its dumbest impeachment defense JANUARY 20, 2020 (Ana Ramirez/Austin American-Statesman via AP) Watching the White House put together its defense of President Trump in the impeachment trial that begins this week, one has to ask: Are they even trying? After the Democratic House managers released   a 111-page indictment   providing copious...
Jan 23 11:18am @7.1 And when Trump goes off the rails after he knows he has no check and balance, the entire gop will own every single word and action.  Buckle up.
Jan 23 11:16am @6.1.2 Of course republicans don't want their sheeple to hear anything but their lies and spin, the truth is just too much for them to handle.   They must have pretty short attention spans.  At least the...
Jan 22 7:04pm @6.1 Not if you were watching 'The Five'.  They didn't have the balls to show the hearing at all except as a small box (no sound) in the corner.
Jan 22 7:02pm @4.1.6 Lol, sure, o believer of the Liar in Chief. 
Jan 22 5:59pm @4.1.4 I always see conservative everywhere talking about 'feelings' and snowflakes. The kicker is, the one who suffers from uncontrollable feelings is Trump, who happens to be the biggest snowflake!...

For those few who were that interested the debate involving the many amendments that Chuck Shumer offered for consideration (each allotted 2 hours of debate) took the Senate into Wednesday morning. Schumer lost every one of them as all the voting was along party lines (except for the occasion when Susan Collins broke ranks) with votes of 53-47. Schumer could not pressure moderate Republicans...
Jan 22 5:45pm @12.1.7 "..." Oh, you all make that perfectly clear - it is more important to piss off 'the left' than do what is right for the country.  Because there is never a rebuttal to the crimes, first comes...
Jan 22 3:36pm @12.1 They didn't say nobody else, but it was NOT Ukraine.  It WAS Russia.  If Trump and gop actually investigated the interference they would have more to offer up than a lie - one that just happens to...

Rep.  Tulsi Gabbard  (D-Hawaii) is suing  Hillary Clinton  for defamation over the former secretary of state's remarks on a podcast characterizing the Democratic presidential candidate as a Russian asset. Gabbard filed the defamation lawsuit Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.  Gabbard’s lawyers allege that Clinton’s comments have...
Jan 22 3:26pm @17 I wish Hillary had just kept it zipped, but she is free to say what she wants.  I look forward to the lawsuit, getting Tulsi's Russian connections and their fondness for her out there is important...

Next Step After The Impeachment Trial May Be An Expungement And Having The Impeachment Stricken From The Record

It is almost a foregone conclusion that the Senate will acquit Trump of the Impeachment handed down by the House, and well it should considering the entire thing has been based on hearsay evidence and "feelings". I certainly wouldn't want a Justice System to decide an individuals freedom, or lack thereof, to be based simply on rumors and impressions of what people who don't like me want to...
Jan 21 11:51am @14 Its hilarious Trumpers think they can just wipe out the fact Trump will always be IMPEACHED.  And history will judge Americans on the truth revealed when Trump is gone, especially those in the...
Jan 21 11:47am @10.1.24 Pelosi was not for impeachment until Trump blatantly extorted Ukraine.  Unless you have some information you'd like to share, please do.
Jan 21 3:39am @10.1.21 "..." Democrats didn't work on impeachment until last year.  When they got the power in the house.  After Trump extorted and bribed Ukraine.
Jan 21 3:34am @9.2.9 Why didn't Trump and the gop do something about it? 
Jan 21 3:29am @2.3.20 "..." Its what they do,  regurgitate lies and propaganda.  The whole Biden thing is bullshit,  they like to pretend Biden just went over and fired the guy prosecuting corruption and its the...

Is it possible to vote our way out of this mess in State Legislatures,  Congress, and the White House?  Seriously, can it be done??? I think we could, but it would require everyone to vote for the people who actually represent the values they hold dearest.  BUT!!! It would also require that you automatically eliminate the Incumbent politicians. You know, the ones that depend on...

Democrats suggest Trump bears responsibility for Ukraine airliner shot down by Iran In the wake of claims that an errant missile fired by Iran brought down a passenger jet earlier this week, some Democrats and media voices have appeared to make the case that President Trump at least shares in the blame for the death of 176 civilians. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., pointedly laid the blame...
Jan 11 11:24am @9.1 I'd say republicans have a lot of nerve accusing democrats or anyone else of siding with the enemy when Trump has his entire head up Putin's ass, not easy when he also appeases Kim, MBS and...

The Speaker has put herself out on a limb possibly via some ill conceived advice from leftist law professor Lawrence Tribe. The whole notion of coercing the leader of the US Senate to conform to a trial dictated by the Speaker of the House was almost doomed to failure from the start. What did Pelosi want? The Speaker has always said that she wants more details about the Senate trial before...
Jan 10 4:34pm @8.2 Pelosi will end up with the legacy of being one of the shrewdest speakers of the house in recent times.

Former national security adviser John Bolton said Monday that he is “prepared to testify” if called as a witness by the Senate.Bolton’s attorney previously said he would be guided by the courts on whether to testify in the impeachment proceedings. But Bolton said in a statement Monday that “a final judicial resolution” appears unlikely before a Senate trial.“Accordingly, since my testimony is...

Photo: Two American political leaders The U.S. drone strike that killed Major General Qasem Soleimani, one of Iran’s top military leaders, is an extremely provocative incident. It triggered  immediate vows of retaliation  from Tehran, and there is every reason to assume that the clerical government intends to fulfill those vows. Washington’s strike is the latest move in a...
Jan 07 11:40am @12.1.2 I didn't read that in Krishna's comment, where are you getting it?  (Rhetorical question, I already know).
Jan 05 5:20pm @5.1.5 "..." Actually the only ones celebrating are the Trumpers, patting themselves on the back in support of Trump 'getting tough'.  So far, no proof of a legal reason to take out an Iranian general....

A majority of black Americans are more interested in voting in the 2020 presidential election than they were in 2016, according to a national  survey  of 1200 black voters and non-voters conducted by Third Way and the Joint Center. Why it matters:  Black voter turnout  declined  significantly in 2016 nationally and in key swing states, ultimately contributing to Hillary Clinton's...

Two years after Trump tax cuts, middle-class Americans are falling behind

Over the next two years, income for middle-class Americans is projected to grow at less than half the rate as for the richest 1%, a recent Congressional Budget Office found. The country's top-earning households will also enjoy a bigger decline in tax rates than all other groups. As a result, income inequality in the U.S. — already at a 50-year high — is expected to worsen....
