The Morning Report - 10/9/19


Good morning kids. Midweek, and a blessed Yom Kippur to our Jewish friends. In the lead this morning is the GOP, with notable exceptions, finally standing behind the President, who essentially told Schiff-for-Brains, Palsi Pelosi and the rest of the filthy, thieving traitors in the Democrat-Left-Media Complex to take their phony-baloney kabuki-bukkake "impeachment" scam and shove it. Of course, the latter still think they are soooper-gee-nee-us in cornering the President into committing obstruction of justice, but this too will blow up in their faces like the patented Loony Toons trick cigar with the stick of TNT in it. I mean, they're moving ahead with their grand strategery as if the President did what they expected them to do and not release the transcript of the phone call with Ukraine president Zelensky. So with the "whistleblower" blown, what did they do? Got a second "whistleblower" who allegedly was the horse's mouth that the first "whistleblower" heard the hearsay from. And even this individual (if he/she really exists) did not actually hear the call either. Again, it's totally irrelevant since the transcript has been released.

First, Kurt Volker, who served up until late last month as a special envoy to Ukraine, was called and instead of serving up what the Dems wanted, he essentially dumped an Arctic Ocean full of ice water on their charges. No matter. The Dems then went after Gordon Sondland, the US ambassador to the European Union, and Trump put his foot down. In a blistering letter to the Democrats, White House Counsel Pat Cippolone stated:

"...Given that your inquiry lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation, any pretense of fairness, or even the most elementary due process protections, the Executive Branch cannot be expected to participate in it..."

The whole thing is a complete sham. Subpoenaing individuals, for the purposes of "impeachment" is illegal and unconstitutional since there has yet to be a floor vote in the House to officially move the process forward. The Democrats are banking on the American people not knowing this, but I can guarantee you that this President, like he has done every damn day since he came down that escalator at Trump Tower is going to give them an education. The Dem strategy now is to continue the sham as long as possible and attempt to peel away a few squish RINOs in the House and perhaps Mittelschmerz and Collins in the Senate so they can claim "bipartisanship!" I don't think even that is going to fly. Cocaine Mitch has flat out slammed the Dems for this banana republic bullshit. Good for him.

The Democrats once again screwed themselves over by completely refusing to understand Trump, expecting Trump to play by their rules like every other Republican or conservative that they took down in the past. Again, the only person that can defeat Trump is Trump himself. The more he sees what DC and the Left are all about, the more he learns, and crucially, the harder he fights back.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.
