The Morning Report - 1/17/20

woodtraves.jpg

Good morning kids. We end the week with what I think is a record-breaking link-palooza, most of it driven by the top story, the Senate sham-peachment "trial." I put that in quotes because as you can see it has a pretty good shot, unfortunately, of rapidly devolving into a Democrat-driven shit-show that will be worse, if that's possible, than the Kavanaugh near-high-tech lynching and the insane House hearings. And you can lay the blame squarely at the RINOs who are stabbing Mitch McConnell in the face. Actually, they're stabbing the president and the people in the face by surrendering the control over this to the Democrats without even firing a single rhetorical shot.

Look, the way this is supposed to work is the House makes its case by calling witnesses, as many seemingly as it wants and taking whatever time it feels it needs to make the case in that chamber and if it passes there, then those articles, the "indictment" so to speak, is sent up to the Senate for adjudication. Period, end of story. Considering that the so called "witnesses" and "evidence" that the Democrats relied upon have no actual first-hand provable accounts, are more than likely lying or merely presenting opinion as facts or have evidence that is utterly bogus to begin is reason enough for the Senate Republicans to pass a motion to dismiss this. For the Democrats to claim the moral high ground here is truly risible in the extreme. A motion to dismiss would not confirm the President's guilt and the GOP's collusion; it would be justice rolling down like a mighty river to the cheers and applause of an aggrieved, put-upon and abused nation.

But no, we're going to have a trial. The question is, will Mitch McConnell allow the RINOs to run roughshod and hand this over to the Democrats on a silver platter with a side order of $5.99 Ronco Pelosi Impeachment Pens? I mean, who is running the trial anyway? I assume it's Lindsey Graham. Is he going to allow Pee-Air Defecto to dictate the terms of an unnecessary surrender and deny the President and his team the right to call witnesses of their choosing? I mean, he's the friggin' defendant here, for crying out loud. If I were McConnell, I would use everything in my power to strip whatever privileges, chairmanships, power and other privileges any of these traitors may have and relegate them to backbench status. The sad news is, the RNC and far too many of its elected members are with the Globalists; they too hate Trump personally as well as his agenda, and that is the reason that McConnell could not whip the 51 votes for dismissal. So far, Rand Paul, the Senator from Jekyll & Hyde, is assuming the former and is on a warpath about who gets to call witnesses and why as is McConnell who preemptively warned about actual jail time for anyone who leaks information to the press during the proceedings.

At the end of the day, this fiasco is going to wind up blowing up in the faces of the Democrats just as it did during the first go rounds in the House. However long it may last, and let's pray no longer than a week although I fear it may go longer, there's still no way that there will be enough GOP senators to add to the Democrats for a 67-vote conviction and removal from office. Even if Pee-Air-Defecto, Maine Pain and Alaskan Snow-Blower commit political suicide, the possibility is there that Joe Manchin and perhaps John Tester will either vote to acquit or even abstain. But as I mourned yesterday, this whole thing is just dreadful to have to endure.

Digging down into the links, the reason the Dems are making a full-court press to demand new witnesses is a surprise attack from the Deep State stooges at the GAO who are claiming that Trump illegally withheld aid from the Ukrainians, to which the OMB immediately called bullshit on, and the concomitant reliance on the new star witness for this go-round, one Lev Parnas, the Rudy Giuliani associate who was indicted on completely unrelated charges and who supposedly, this-time-for-sure!, has got the goods on the President. Except he doesn't and he is going to turn out to be Michael Cohen 2, Bullshit Artist Boogaloo. Even Ukraine's foreign minister is calling Parnas a flat out liar, but no doubt the Democrats will call him too a Russian agent.

Many more links including good essays from the esteemed Greg Jarret and Conrad Black, but we'll cap it off with two from the Naked Truth Dept.: Nancy Palsi channels her inner Lavrenty Beria by spouting the Democrat mantra about not being about the truth but the seriousness of the charge, while the human when-all-you-have-is-a-mouth-everything-looks-like-a-corned-beef-sandwich monster known as Nadler stated the end game - taking out Trump so he can't win a massive landslide and destroy the Democrats next November.

To quote Woody Allen from Bananas, "It's a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.

QED.
