Four big takeaways from the explosive John Bolton bombshell JANUARY 27, 2020 (Brendan Smialowski/AFP via Getty Images) We have now   learned precisely what John Bolton is prepared to tell us   about President Trump’s Ukraine extortion scheme. This is terribly inconvenient for Republican Senators who are frantically searching for ways to vote against hearing from Trump’s...
Jan 27 7:04pm @1.2.46 "..." No law needed.   His other option is simply fire him/her.  No reason necessary.  Hell, it could as simple as not liking the color worn on the day of the firing.
Jan 27 4:55pm @4.2.5 "..." Here's the correct way to state what you should have; They will hear the truth no matter how hard Democrats try to stop it because the idiots Pelosi and Schiff with Nadler (The three...
Jan 27 4:24pm @3.1.9 "..." But even you have to acknowledge that Bill Clinton surrendered his law license in essence for his perjury in the Starr investigation.  But all they have regarding President Trump is rumor,...
Jan 27 4:05pm @1.2.42 "..." Thanks for admitting that the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) people are gulping the kool-aid in massive quantities.
Jan 27 4:01pm @1.2.40 "..." Reading is an imperative.   But it does not negate the fact that the President has the authority to watch a political appointee. The last two words are imperative to understand.
Jan 27 3:47pm @1.2.37 "..." They can investigate whatever they desire.  But it does not negate the fact that the President has the authority to watch a political appointee whenever and wherever (s)he so desires....
Jan 27 3:30pm @1.2.32 "..." Having one surveilled to determine if he/she is following the Foreign Policy directives of the President is most certainly well within the rights of the President.  An Ambassador, while...
Jan 27 3:06pm @1.2.30 "..." So now you're calling the President of a foreign nation a liar? Do you have any evidence to support that claim, or is it just your supposition and theory?
Jan 27 3:03pm @1.2.28 "..." A President having an employee watched is not illegal katrix, no matter how you wish it were so. Oh, and per the courts, the Obama administration did in fact obtain FISA warrants illegally.
Jan 27 2:33pm @1.2.19 "..." Here is the correct version of your missive; No FISA warrant necessary, just Trump being the BOSS, interested in what his underling was up to.  That's how it works in the Executive...
Jan 27 11:24am @5.1.1 "..." Yeah.  Especially those trying to hustle a book and make a financial killing doing so.  //S//

It was bad enough when Schiff lied in his personal witch hunt headquarters in the House Intelligence Committee  Chambers in the House of Representatives, in the press, and now in the Senate too, but here is the one that probably will be the most damning to his cause of all: (Link) The blowback was swift, and several awing Senators took particular umbrage to the rumor he is...

Jan 27 6:27pm @1.1.62 "..." It takes a bit for some to come to the realization. Essentially anything and everything a corporation pays out is an expense and not taxable.  Some just can't grasp that concept.
Jan 27 6:24pm @1.1.61 "..." True.   But security comes with a price.  Little income. "..." We both know that.   But some think that the stock market is gambling, which to a point it is.   Of course, there are also...

Jan 27 1:27pm @1.1.53 "..." Do you not think that I've factored into my rental pricing what I might be liable for in federal income taxes? I know you're smarter than that Ender.  At least I believe so.
Jan 27 10:44am @1.1.47 "..." Unfortunately, some are simply too blind to see that.  Or they have a real desire to have a communist country where everyone is phucked over by the government and living in a style the...
Jan 27 9:20am @1.1.46 "..." Congratulations.  Is there a point you're trying to make?  And don't make guarantees you can't support.  The margin or profit one makes is predicated on many factors.  And there are places...
Jan 26 10:22pm @1.1.36 "..." I can guaranfuckintee that my tenants don't want me to pay anymore taxes that I get from them in the form of rent.   They pay every penny of tax "I'm" responsible for. Yeah, as you...
Jan 25 1:55pm @1.1.4 "..." Hell no.  He's the living evidence that 1984 actually is real, albeit a little late, it's there.
Jan 25 1:35pm @1.1.2 "..." So, yet one more time, Schiff is relying on HEARSAY information with no basis in fact.  Thanks!!
Jan 25 12:40pm @4.1.9 "..." Actually JR, it was quite interesting.  And the "fact checkers" you demand turned around and went back to the locker-room when they discovered that the Presidents legal team was in fact...

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 27 6:32pm @2.1.36 "..." Last week FOX had the proceedings on for the first two days NON STOP.   The only breaks were when new programs were to start and that only took a few seconds each. After about 20+ hours of...
Jan 27 6:20pm @2.1.35 "..." In other words JR...   of course you believe she got the job because of Trump.   But isn't that sexist and misogynist of you not believing she did it because she's a talented lawyer? No...
Jan 27 5:48pm @2.1.32 "..." One would think you would believe that.  Hell, you've sucked down all the pabulum the Democrats in the House have spoon fed you, so why change now?
Jan 27 5:46pm @2.2.4 "..." What's wrong JR.  No original thoughts?   You've been relegated to regurgitating the hate of others now? Oh, here's a clue JR.  There is nothing wrong with any of those jobs.   Maybe you...
Jan 27 5:42pm @2.1.29 "..." What are the chances she got the position as a qualified attorney? I'll submit much greater. Oh, is Pam Bondi a relative of President Trump?  No you say?  Case closed.
Jan 27 5:40pm @2.1.28 "..." If you don't understand that lawyers doing lobbying work are not cheap is not my problem.  It's yours.   At least Bondi has knowledge and expertise in the field of work she was hired on...
Jan 27 5:32pm @2.1.25 "..." UPDATE JUST FOR YOU LIB.... FOX has the Senate proceedings in a corner box and are discussing Bryant at the moment...   So much for your erroneous contention. 
Jan 27 4:28pm @2.1.24 "..." Much like FOX did for the FIRST TWO DAYS of the Democrats droning on and regurgitating the same lines over and over again as if repeating them a thousand times would miraculously make the...
Jan 25 11:18am @2.1.21 "..." Actually, on day three.... even FOX had enough and put the proceedings in a corner box.   They recognized that hearing the same story over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and...
Jan 25 11:09am @2.1.19 "..." Fox had the Democrats on for TWO FUCKING DAYS regurgitating the same talking points every hour.  The ONLY difference was which Democrat was reading the play book at that particular hour....
Jan 22 7:15pm @1.3.5 "..." Clinton was impeached for his actions lying under oath.  He surrendered his law license in a plea deal to avoid a felony perjury charge.

Jan 22 5:53pm @2.1.2 "..." Why listen to the blathering of the left when they have NO FACTUAL BASIS for the sham they're perpetrating on the American people.
Jan 22 5:52pm @3.1 "..." Yes it will.  The Democrats have lost their minds in their vitriolic hatred of the man that beat Hillary Clinton and will not rest until they have brought down not President Trump, but the...

Multiple sources familiar with Bolton's writings told  The New York Times  that Bolton writes that President Trump personally told him that $391 million in aid to Ukraine should be frozen until Ukrainian officials announced the investigations, including one into the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Today Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz will make a Constitutional argument against the Articles of Impeachment drafted by the House.

The basis of the Dershowitz argument will be based on what he has already told anyone who...

Jan 27 1:23pm @2.4.14 "..." Who's afraid JR?  Not me.   However, if Bolton "testifies", do the Republicans get to call, Comey, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Stroke, Paige, etal?  I'd even suggest they go as high as Lynch...
