Impeachment – the Convoluted Way We Got Here

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.

The Carter Page/Ukraine Lie That Kept On Lying for Mueller and the FBI

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. read more

Video Podcast – The Trump Phone Call – A Look Back

by: Brent Smith

July 25, 2019: The infamous Trump/Ukraine president phone call. Trump withheld aid money from the Ukraine until they reopened the investigation into Burisma and Hunter Biden. So claim the democrats.

Oh it had nothing at all to do with Trump wanting the Ukrainians to clean up their own government – weed out their own deep state corrupt bureaucrats and politicians.

And somehow, those in charge overlooked the fact that an investigation had already been reopened six months prior to the “infamous” phone call.

I discuss that and much more. read more

Podcast – War Powers – Did Trump have the Authority to Kill Soleimani?

by: Brent Smith

Did Trump have the right, the authority under the Constitution to kill Soleimani and that other bag of dirty, al-Muhandis?

That’s been the burning question on everyone’s mind and just another perceived log, stoking the democrat fires of impeachment. Can this also be added to their Articles of Impeachment – or maybe saved for later?

Was Trump Constitutionally correct in “unilaterally” ordering the strike against the left’s new war hero, Qassem Soleimani?

Well, the short answer is yes, and I will explain exactly why the president was and is right and the dems are once again wrong. read more

Christian Magazine Shames Itself

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.Christianity Today, which was founded by the Rev. Billy Graham, published a column written by editor Mark Galli under the headline "Trump Should Be Removed from Office."

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.

It’s shameless!

from the Washington Examiner:

UPDATED: ‘Profoundly immoral’: Christianity Today asserts Trump ‘should be removed from office’

The evangelical magazine founded by the Rev. Billy Graham called President Trump’s phone call to the Ukrainian president “profoundly immoral” and called for him to be removed from office. read more

WND Exclusive – It’s up to the Senate to expose the real criminals & swamp rats

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.

But this would be a big mistake. read more

Eddie Gallagher Case Typifies the Dysfunction of SEAL Leadership

I’ve been mulling over writing about the poor treatment Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer Eddie Gallagher received over the past few years at that the hands of the wussified modern American Naval community. The irony is that they are acting like leftists, as in they are acting simultaneously like politically correct girly-men and bullies.

By wussification, I mean hamstringing special operators with very limiting rules of engagement (ROE) and then bullying them if and when one steps over their arbitrarily created red lines. Add to that, the heavy toll of over-deployment.

I reached out to some operators I know, and unfortunately received little comment. I can certainly understand why.

Then I was sent this from SEAL Chief Brandon Webb’s site SOFREP. It pretty much sums up my feelings on the topic.

from Brandon Webb at SOFREP:

TRUMP’S INTERVENTION, GALLAGHER, WAR CRIMES, TOXIC CULTURE: THE ISSUES OF THE SEAL TEAMS

(U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Russell Rhodes Jr./Released)

I wouldn’t want my son to be in the SEAL Teams that exist today, it’s a mafioso environment where everyone has dirt on each other. The culture is more Hells Angels than a professional Special Ops unit.” – Anonymous Navy SEAL

#Truth

I was initially worried about addressing this topic because of the toxic peer pressure that exists among the SEAL community inside and outside. However, my business network kept asking me about Gallagher and Trump’s intervention in his case, and in the end, I decided that if the thought of speaking about this made me uncomfortable, I should just write about it.

WND Exclusive – Dem hack Hank Johnson’s Manifest Hypocrisy

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

President Trump is accused by the Democrats of a quid pro quo, or bribery or extortion – at least until they come up with another synonym that focus groups better than those three.

According to Democrats, Trump threatened to withhold aid money and military supplies from Ukraine unless they opened an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden.

To this, Democratic hack from Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson said:

“Attempting to coerce a foreign government into digging up dirt on a political opponent, then trying to cover it up by unlawfully refusing to turn over the whistleblower complaint to Congress, crosses a red line.”

In case you’re thinking – where have I heard that name, let me elucidate. And no, you didn’t see his name on the Harvard doctoral registry, or the Mensa International website. Let’s see if this jogs your memory: read more

Turns Out – Going Around the State Dept. is Nothing New

What does a President do if he doesn’t believe he can trust his own State Department diplomats to conduct foreign policy the way he wishes? Find someone he can trust and send them instead. That’s exactly what Trump did when he tapped Giuliani. And Trump certainly wasn’t the first, and he won’t be the last.

from Real Clear Investigations:

Giuliani-Style ‘Shadow’ Diplomacy: Par for the Course for U.S. Presidents

Rudolph Giuliani didn’t hide the fact that he was investigating whether Ukraine interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Yet most media have treated Giuliani’s efforts as sneaky and suspect because he acted at the personal behest of the president and not as an official representative of the bureaucracy. The New York Times, for example, claimed Giuliani was conducting “a shadow foreign policy campaign.”

In fact, presidents since George Washington have turned to individuals without formal government positions to pursue foreign policy interests and objectives. Private citizens, often acting as special envoys, have helped negotiate issues ranging from trade to war. While critics deride such efforts as “back-door,” “secret,” or “shadow” undertakings, many presidents have found it useful to dispatch people they trust, who can think and operate outside the constraints of official channels in handling delicate matters. read more

Impeachment will Implode on Democrats

from the New York Sun:

Sordid Ruse Is All That’s Left Of Impeachment

You may read it here first: This sordid, contemptible impeachment ruse is finally disintegrating. It was another fraud, and I predict that this time the polls will move clearly in the president’s favor. There are limits to how often his enemies can get the public and the world to the edges of their chairs with their fantastic accusations.

The Economist, a long-respected magazine in earlier times, told us a year ago that the Trump presidency was hanging on the thread of Michael Cohen’s testimony. Most of the American press gave the public to understand for two years that there was a high chance that he would be thrown out once the Mueller investigation established his “treasonous” links to the Russians. read more

It’s Looking like Michael Flynn was Railroaded by the FBI

Scroll Down for Audio Version

For years, possibly even decades, many of us constitutionalists have insisted that our founding fathers were prescient, almost to the point of clairvoyance. It seems that whatever issues befall our nation, the founders already accounted for when they crafted the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Yet, I’m starting to wonder if even they could’ve predicted the depths of depravity our government has sunk to over the last few years.

The lengths the Deep State, entrenched bureaucracy, has so far gone through to attempt to remove a duly elected President of the United States is staggering. It’s something never seen in our history and if it were someday to be made into a movie, it would likely be impossible to follow, given how many characters are involved and the myriad of plot twists.

And for what? Because the leftists in our government and media, after three years, still cannot comes to grips with Donald Trump as president.

It’s like Citizen Kane on the most powerful steroid imaginable. I can see Adam Schiff, lying on his death bed someday. With his last breath, not uttering “Rosebud,” as did Kane, but “Trump.” Arthur Conan Doyle couldn’t dream up a more intricate plot line. read more
