    For as long as Bernie (and Liz and Joe) has been in Washington and has a record of doing very little, I’m surprised that anyone believes that he will ever be able to accomplish his big ideas. He will not.

    And the reason they are uninformed voters is journalistic integrity is dead. Most mainstream media outlets are nothing more than propaganda machines. Many of the uninformed don’t know how or are too lazy to verify a story before taking it as the truth.

      That is not correct. Journalistic integrity has nothing to do with it. It called laziness. It is much easier to believe the lies so that is what they do. Someone today on one of these posts said Thank God for Trumps tweets because that is the only place they can hear the truth. That is scary but it is the way things are.

    It’s obvious the Obama administration knew about the conflict of interest between the Biden family and U.S. foreign policy in Ukraine. The Democrats’ own impeachment witness, former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, testified in her closed-door deposition that the Obama administration specifically prepped her to answer questions regarding Hunter Biden and Burisma during her Senate confirmation hearing.

    There has been information uncovered about a meeting that took place in Jan. 2016 among officials in the Obama White House, the alleged whistleblower and various Ukrainian officials. Discussed during the meeting were concerns about Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings and how Hunter’s position would impact prosecution efforts against the company. A copy of an email conversation between State Department official Kate Schilling and New York Times reporter Ken Vogel. The email chain shows the New York Times reporter was writing a story about the meeting in question, specifically the concerns about Hunter Biden and Burisma. The Times squashed the story shortly after Joe Biden announced his run for president, as the email chain between The Times reporter and the State Department official are dated the week after Biden’s campaign announcement. Was The Times protecting Joe Biden, or did the Biden campaign manage to kill the story?

    Despite a warning from the Senate sergeant-at-arms for senators to remain silent as the Democratic impeachment managers laid out their case against the president, a so-called quote read by lead impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) elicited several responses from Republican senators Friday evening. Rep. Schiff was referencing a CBS news report claiming a Trump ally had warned GOP senators, “vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.” But many senators responded to Rep. Schiff, saying aloud, “That’s not true.” The lead impeachment manager seems to have alienated some of the very senators the Democrats were hoping to peel away from the Republican majority on important votes like calling forward new witnesses and subpoenaing documents. Republicans are VERY angry about Schiff’s decision to reference that CBS “head on a pike” report. Murkowski says “that’s where he lost me.” Barrasso says “whatever gains he may have made, he lost all of it — plus some — tonight.” Of course Adam Schiff would overplay his hand. Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea for the Democrats to let the Schiff show continue on in the Senate. Leaving aside the graphic imagery that heads on pikes conjures up, Schiff’s comments certainly seem to have alienated key GOP senators. But maybe the Republicans knew just how much rope the Democrats needed to hang themselves.

    It is increasingly apparent that Cristine Blasey Ford’s testimony is riddled not with false memories, but outright lies.
    That’s quite the accusation, so let’s present the evidence as told by Ford’s boyfriend who says:
    Ford had no fear of flying, even in a prop plane in Hawaii
    Ford coached her girlfriend on how to take polygraphs
    Ford had no fear of tight places or claustrophobia
    Ford made mo mention of sexual assault to him in six years
    Let’s give Ford the benefit of the doubt on point four. Let’s assume she was that traumatized by the event. What do you have? A pack of lies.
    Please consider Blasey Ford’s Kavinaugh Testimony Unravels After Ex-Boyfriend Refutes Key Claims. Yes, I believe Ford’s accuser. She is just another Liberal liar.
    Why?
    Unlike Ford, her accuser genuinely has nothing to gain.
    He cites specific instances that are likely verifiable including an apartment where Ford lived that was 500 sq. ft.
    He accuses her of credit card fraud. This should be easy enough to verify.
    Ford’s testimony about installing a second door on an apartment as an escape hatch has already been blown to smithereens. It turns out that the second door was likely put in to accommodate tenants that Ford leased a portion of her home to.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

    Are there no provisions for firing Congress people? They have not worked a day for the people. They blatantly spend tax dollars on whatever trip, ceremony, meetings, social gatherings, etc. In a private business, an employee would be fired, in a heartbeat. It is open embezzlement. They give themselves raises, with no discussion given or vote taken by the taxpayer. The list is actually endless. Surely, there is some way, besides voting them out. It is just idiotic that they can do whatever they please, with no penalties or termination.

    Manager Adam Schiff has suggested we put ourselves in the Biden’s shoes.
    I would assume that if you did what the Bidens did – allowing Hunter Biden to turn Ukraine into an ATM machine receiving an estimated $3 million from one of the most corrupt companies in a corrupt country – I dare say you should expect some questions coming your way. If you are a Republican, you could expect Mr. Schiff to be your worst nightmare.
    If VP Pence and his son were in this spot, I’m confident Mr. Schiff and our Democratic colleagues would be demanding someone look into this matter, not simply sweep it under the rug. Every media outlet in the country would demand an accounting and Democrats would be howling for an investigation.
    It is clear to me that the House managers are misleading the Senate and the country when they say that the Bidens’ conflict of interest in Ukraine is baseless and has been debunked.
    When this trial is over, I expect either congressional oversight or an independent investigation into the Biden matter.
