Never-Trumper Republicans working on the 2016 election platform, the FBI, the Mueller bunch, disgruntled convention delegates, the Clinton/Steele dossier, smarmy democrats, leftist media, etc., etc. – all combined to get us to where we are now – sham impeachment articles, having nothing at all to with they originally claimed, and heading into a Senate trial.
Here’s how we arrived.
Reprinted with permission of Real Clear Investigations:
The FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller repeatedly kept alive a damning narrative that investigators knew to be false: namely, that a junior Trump campaign aide as a favor to the Kremlin had “gutted” an anti-Russia and pro-Ukraine plank in the Republican Party platform at the GOP’s 2016 convention.
Federal authorities used this claim to help secure spy warrants on the aide in question, Carter Page, suggesting to the court that he was “an agent of Russia” – even though investigators knew that Page was working for U.S., not Russian, intelligence, and that they had learned from witnesses, emails and other evidence that Page had no role in drafting the Ukraine platform plank.
The revelation is buried in the Justice Department watchdog’s just-released report on FISA surveillance abuses. RealClearInvestigations fleshed out this unreported story with footnotes from the Mueller report and exclusive interviews with Trump campaign officials who worked on the convention platform.

I found a new website the other day. Okay, more like I stumbled over it. It’s called Common Dreams.
I can’t remember how I found it, but it is quite revealing of the minds of the ultra-progressive left. And when I say left, I mean like MoveOn.org and Media Matters left. This site makes CNN look middle-of-the-road. Okay – not quite, but pretty close.
Okay, now I remember how I found it. I was looking for some information about a speech that actor John Cusack gave at a Bernie Sanders rally over the weekend in New Hampshire.
A Common Dreams staff writer wrote a glowing account of the gathering and Cusack’s speech. The article is entitled, “Bernie Sanders Has Been Getting It Right for 40 Years. Now, Says His Movement: ‘We Are Going to Win’ – “We’ve never ever in our lifetimes had a true champion of social, economic, and climate justice this close to the White House.”
This is what you get when you all pushed your party further and further left – blowing past liberalism and progressivism to socialism/communism. What did you think was going to happen as you promoted and gave a stage to a 29 year old Bernie Sanders.
The democrat party aligned itself with radical academia and arrogantly thought it could control whatever progeny sprung forth. And now you have to live with the result of their handiwork.
Ocasio-Cortez is just doing exactly what she was taught to do. Use other people’s money to further her own ends and bury anyone who stands in her way.
Your Frankenstein monster lives and she’s coming to your district to incite mayhem and destruction.
And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.
from The Right Scoop:
Well this is rich!
The second things don’t go the way they want, leftist progressive statists whine like stuck pigs. And my apology to stuck pigs.
Facebook finally releases what appears to be a reasonable and fair ad policy prior to the 2020 election heating up, and because the dems get no advantage from it, they claim that Zuckerberg, of
all people, is getting his marching orders from president Trump.
And as government statists always do, they wield the power of the federal government as a bludgeon to threaten a private company.
Like I said – this is rich.
Media Echo Democrat Rage After Facebook Refuses to Change Political Ad Policy
The media and Democrats want to limit Facebook ads before the 2020 election. But Facebook refused to cave in to their demands.
In a Jan. 9 blog post published by Facebook Director of Product Management Rob Leathern, the company argued that “we don’t think decisions about political ads should be made by private companies.” Facebook stated that its principle was that “people should be able to hear from those who wish to lead them, warts and all, and that what they say should be scrutinized and debated in public.”
You know our country is in deep doo-doo when a magazine named Christianity makes the conscious and public choice to side with the radical leftists – the democrat party, and against president Trump, by repeating the tired old fable that Trump pressured the Ukrainian President to investigate the Biden crime family.
But sadly they did, and in doing so, they’ve also dragged the good name of the magazine’s founder, Rev. Billy Graham into this nonsense.
It seems leftist politics is permeating everything and Christianity magazine, and it’s editor-in-chief Mark Galli, should be ashamed to convict the president in the court of public opinion, or worse, for kow-towing to the left out of a sense of fear.

UPDATED: ‘Profoundly immoral’: Christianity Today asserts Trump ‘should be removed from office’
from Brent Smith for World net Daily:
Please don’t do this, Mitch!
Rush Limbaugh reported this week that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might not even put the Senate impeachment trial to a vote – that he may just dismiss the whole thing as the sham that it is and not waste any time on it. The other option McConnell he is said to be considering is to have a lightning fast trial and move for acquittal.
Don’t do it, Mitch! Don’t do what Republicans are known for – taking the easy way out.
I know this is the conventional wisdom. I understand that completely. From an emotional standpoint, we are all so disappointed and angered by the attempts to railroad the president that we just want it all to go away.

Bernie Sanders has a mini-commercial on YouTube where he says elections have been hijacked by billionaires. Of course he’s talking about Trump.
Bernie has been quoted saying he doesn’t think billionaires should even exist. At least all but one – George Soros.
I discuss Bernie and George and other leftist billionaires who fund everything – including Bernie.
LA County School District is teaming up with Planned Parenthood to install 50 abortion centers in their high schools.
Oh they’re not calling them abortion clinics and say they won’t provide that service. Not right away anyway.
from Victor Davis Hanson at Townhall:
Is Trump the Only Adult in the Room?
But then again, no president in modern memory has been on the receiving end of such overwhelmingly negative media coverage and a three-year effort to abort his presidency, beginning the day after his election.
Do we remember the effort to subvert the Electoral College to prevent Trump from assuming office?
The first impeachment try during his initial week in office?
Attempts to remove Trump using the ossified Logan Act or the emoluments clause of the Constitution?
As of yet, we don’t know who or how many people, and in what agencies Michael Horowitz passed on to William Barr and John “Bull” Durham for potential criminal prosecution, but it had better be some from the FBI – at the very least.
As John Solomon writes in his most recent report, two of Trump’s people have either gone to prison or are awaiting sentencing for making a single false statement. According to Horowitz, no less the nine false statements were given to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA), yet not a single head has rolled to date.
Something had better come of this , and sooner than later.
from John Solomon Reports:
Just how bad was the FBI’s Russia FISA? 51 violations and 9 false statements
To understand just how shoddy the FBI’s work was in securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant targeting the Trump campaign, you only need to read an obscure attachment to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report.
