John Bolton: Trump's Impeachment Was a Partisan Circus and My Testimony Wouldn't Have Helped Democrats
Matt Vespa


This is a common theme when it comes to Democrats trying to corner or destroy Trump. They fail. It blows up. Whatever they think could be something that could embarrass or destroy this administration turns out to be a nothingburger. It’s the same thing with the whole Russia-Trump collusion myth. How many bombshells did we hear about? How many turned out to be nothing? The amount of buckshot Democrats have embedded in their faces cannot be measured. Before the Trump impeachment circus ended, Senate Democrats tried to get extra witnesses into the fold. That’s not how this works. Again, there were 17 witnesses—all picked by Democrats. And they wanted more? If they wanted to go this route, they should have settled this in the House. They didn’t. You don’t get to break procedure because your case, already shoddy, didn’t move the public opinion needle with regards to booting Trump. If anything, it only helped the president who saw his approval numbers increase and pushed swing states further away from Democrats.

The one witness that Democrats wanted was former National Security Adviser John Bolton. They wanted his testimony. They thought it had something in there that could destroy Trump. And after the Senate rightfully gave Trump a total and full acquittal, after the media freaked out, and after Democrats threw a tantrum—Bolton finally says that the impeachment push was a partisan clown show and his testimony wouldn’t have helped Democrats (via Associated Press):

Former national security adviser John Bolton on Wednesday denounced the House’s impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump as ”grossly partisan” and said his testimony would not have changed Trump’s acquittal in the Senate, as he continued to stay quiet on the details of a yet-to-be-released book.

In his second public discussion this week, Bolton was on stage at Vanderbilt University with former national security adviser under President Barack Obama, Susan Rice, who questioned Bolton’s refusal to discuss more details while his book undergoes screening for possible classified national security details by the Trump administration. Bolton was likewise quiet on specifics from the book during a Monday speaking engagement at Duke University.

[…]

Bolton contended that the House “committed impeachment malpractice,” drawing some grumbling from the audience, saying “the process drove Republicans who might have voted for impeachment away because it was so partisan.” He also said he didn’t expect the Senate to vote against having him testify.

“People can argue about what I should have said and what I should have done,” Bolton said. “I would bet you a dollar right here and now, my testimony would have made no difference to the ultimate outcome.”

So, once again, another failed Democratic attempt to outmaneuver this administration. Trump won and the Democrats lost. And all this push did was give Donald Trump the largest in-kind contribution towards his 2020 re-election effort.

You're absolutely correct. If the Democrats called the cops and told them that a Republican was ready to commit a crime and the cops set up a sting and caught said Republican red handed, guess what the next move the GOP would make? Scream conspiracy, hack job, fake news, scam. Bolton is clearly in a book promotion mode and know you crooked Republicans all so well, his testimony would have been discredited solely in attempts to protect the biggest crook since Hitler.

I'll ask a rhetorical question, the emphasis is rhetorical because crooked Trump supporters don't take questions, they only spread lies and propaganda. Did you hear about the new Russian attempt to interfere in our election and push Trump as their favorite? Did you hear about Trump firing the DNI because he relayed that information to Adam Schiff and others? Why does Trump fear Putin so much and allow Russia to have any interference on our election? You know the answers but the fact that you're a White Conservative willing to compromise our country to keep White Conservatives in power, you'll do anything to preserve that stance...look at the repercussion....A corrupted White Conservative party. A Job well done Sir. crazy

Deep State: Classified Intelligence Briefing Leaked to NYT to Get The Trump-Russia Hysterics Going Again
Matt Vespa


President Trump is on track for re-election. He’s beaten the impeachment circus that tried to engulf him. The economy is still booming. And the Democrats are a mess. He was slammed for killing Iran’s top terrorist Qasam Soleimani. I thought this was going to cause another world war. It hasn’t. in fact, we won. Iran fired some rockets, but Soleimani is still dead. Red lines and deterrence have been re-established. Trump won. Trump keeps winning. And the Nevada Democratic debate only showed a Democratic Party in complete disarray. It’s a party that has no one who can beat Trump. No one. So, how do we muddy the waters? Oh, just have The New York Times report about a leaked intelligence briefing to get the Trump-Russia hysterics going again. It’s about laying the new foundations to de-legitimize his second term. It’s about laying the stones for impeachment part II (via NYT):

Intelligence officials warned House lawmakers last week that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected, five people familiar with the matter said, a disclosure to Congress that angered Mr. Trump, who complained that Democrats would use it against him.

The day after the Feb. 13 briefing to lawmakers, Mr. Trump berated Joseph Maguire, the outgoing acting director of national intelligence, for allowing it to take place, people familiar with the exchange said. Mr. Trump cited the presence in the briefing of Representative Adam B. Schiff, the California Democrat who led the impeachment proceedings against him, as a particular irritant.

During the briefing to the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Trump’s allies challenged the conclusions, arguing that he has been tough on Russia and strengthened European security. Some intelligence officials viewed the briefing as a tactical error, saying that had the official who delivered the conclusion spoken less pointedly or left it out, they would have avoided angering the Republicans.

[…]

Spokeswomen for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and its election security office declined to comment. A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

A Democratic House intelligence committee official called the Feb. 13 briefing an important update about “the integrity of our upcoming elections” and said that members of both parties attended, including Representative Devin Nunes of California, the top Republican on the committee.

This is total nonsense, folks. Also, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the starting quarterback for this Trump-Russia theater and its impeachment execution and chair of the House Intelligence Committee, was there—and this briefing was leaked. I wonder who spilled the beans to a major news publication about this meeting. What Schifty character would do such a thing? The country has moved on from this nonsense. Only the small urban-based elites care, I guess—but they’re not enough to win an election. It’s just so predictable, the resurrection of the ‘Russia is trying to help Trump’ narrative. And this time there’s no shoddy dossier to keep this myth afloat. Even then, most knew the Trump dossier, the basis for the Russian collusion fairy tale, was unverified. Now, the Left doesn’t even have that piece of Clinton-funded political opposition research to cite with this renewed push to summon the collusion gods. No one cares, Schiff. No one cares, Democrats. The impeachment push, an offshoot of this tall tale, proved that. It only made Trump more popular and moved swing states further away from Democrats. But please keep doing this. It will only end with a second Trump term.

‘We must exorcise the demon’: Longtime GOP strategist publishes a devastating column as he registers as a Democrat

In an op-ed for the Tampa Bay Times this Friday, longtime Republican strategist Mac Stipanovich reveals that he has registered as a Democrat in the run up to the Florida presidential primary.

“I and a number of other long-time Republicans have re-registered so we can vote for the candidate closest to the center with the best chance of winning the Democratic nomination and defeating Donald Trump in November,” Stipanovich writes. “Hopefully, that choice will be clearer after Super Tuesday, but it looks like Joe Biden or Michael Bloomberg today.”

Clyburn Downplays the Low Black Unemployment Rate
Cortney O'Brien

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto gave Democratic House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) a hypothetical: Will you support the eventual Democratic nominee no matter what - even if it comes down to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg? The guy who oversaw the controversial stop-and-frisk program that disproportionately affected young minorities? The guy who said racist and sexist things on tape?

Yes, Clyburn said. He'll support whoever the Democrats pick to take on President Trump, because no matter what any of the Democratic candidates have said, Trump's language and behavior is ten times worse. (No evidence to support this claim)

"Not as much as what Trump has said about African-Americans," he answered. "Anytime I go to the polls I'm considering positive and negatives on all candidates."

Cavuto countered to note that even though voters may not love everything Trump has said, can he deny that the president has "delivered the goods" on African-American jobs?

Yes, he can. Clyburn downplayed the current low black unemployment rate and invoked slavery to make his point.


Tom Elliott
@tomselliott
.@WhipClyburn dismisses the record low black unemployment rate: "I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it has ever been unless you count slavery. We were fully employed during slavery."

In his past two State of the Union addresses, Trump has cited the historic low black unemployment rate, but most Democrats remained seated and stone-faced, refusing to acknowledge the economic positive.


"The unemployment rate for African-Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian-Americans has reached the lowest levels in history," Trump said again at this month's SOTU. "African-American youth unemployment has reached an all-time low. African-American poverty has declined to the lowest rate ever recorded."

Again, silence from the Dems.

The 2020 Democrats are currently all vying for Clyburn's endorsement before next weekend's South Carolina primary. In a post-debate interview on MSNBC Wednesday night, former vice president Joe Biden sounded confident that he'll be the one to grab it.

Former longtime U.S. Republican Congressman Tom Coleman: (Former Member of Congress (MO), policy expert, adjunct professor, Advisor) @protectdemocracy

Trump's danger to America has reached the point where Presidents Carter, Clinton, Bush, and Obama must issue a joint statement and hold a joint press conference to call for the removal from office of the President. They owe it to the nation.

What Trump is doing to our security and democracy is of such magnitude that Presidents Carter, Clinton, Bush, and Obama must issue a public statement and hold a press conference on the extreme danger Trump has put us in & call for his removal from office.

Trump throws tantrum not because the Russians are trying 2 interfere N the elections but because House Intel comm. Dems were briefed about it. Do we need any more evidence he's a Russian asset? Senate Republicans having failed to remove him now responsible 4 everything he does.

Alexandria, Virginia-based U.S. District Court Judge Liam O’Grady’s two-page order made short work of Nunes’ suit, which sought $9.9 million in damages from Fusion GPS, its founder Glenn Simpson and a nonprofit watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability,” Politico explained. “The judge also signaled that pressing on with the legal battle could result in sanctions against Nunes and his attorney, Steven Biss.”

The Latest Renewal At Stirring Up Trump-Russia Collusion Hysterics Is So Thin, Even CNN's Tapper Called It Out
Matt Vespa

This was bound to be a flash in the pan story. There’s nothing to it. And the fact that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), one of the biggest anti-Trump Democrats on the Hill who has a reputation of leaking everything under the sun, was involved didn’t help matters either. You all know the story: somebody leaked details of a classified intelligence briefing to The New York Times that the—wait for it—Russians were trying to help Trump get re-elected. Schiff was in the room for this briefing. It was then leaked to a major news publication. It’s a mystery wrapped in a riddle as to who spilled the beans:

And now, the Russians are helping Sen. Bernie Sanders as well. They’re helping him, according to a story in The Washington Post. Sanders was briefed on this matter…a month ago. If everyone is a Russian agent, then no one is a Russian agent. This game has gone long enough. It was a clown show from the beginning. There is zero evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, which was finally given the kill shot with the report filed by ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller. This report and the one filed by the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who investigated the FISA abuses under Obama, also torched the infamous and unverified Trump dossier, which was the basis for this whole myth. This piece of political opposition research that was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign was also cited as credible evidence in securing a FISA spy warrant against Carter Page, who was a former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. It was all a hoax, with shoddy information from some trash document used to execute a partisan witch-hunt that evolved into an absurd impeachment push. Luckily, the Democrats failed. They have yet to learn that you cannot polish a turd. If the argument and its so-called evidence is garbage, that’s exactly how it will be seen, no matter how many disgruntled anti-Trump bureaucrats you drag onto the Hill for testimony.

As Streiffnoted on RedState, we don’t know what the evidence is, what agencies are involved, or the confidence of this assessment. Tapper took to Twitter to go on a lengthy thread about how intelligence officials he knows pushed back on what was being peddled by his colleagues in the media. In all, the intelligence gathered bears no fruit in confirming the ‘Russia is helping Trump’ allegation that was supposedly tossed out there by Shelby Pierson, the man in charge with our election security:

What election? This is a civil war to stop Trump


Trump is letting us know that he and his base don’t think of this as an election. It’s a civil war. They want to turn the clock back to the time that Negroes knew their place and women were happy making biscuits in the kitchen and employers could pay their workers anything they wanted and the question of who got to vote was decided by a few white men in a smoke-filled room.

Note the consistent use of Conservative rag sites adverse to mainstream information. Your posts are all so accurate, this isn't really about a presidential election but more so, a renewed agenda to take the country backward. I can adamantly declare that a open minded White society placed me in positions not afforded me 60 years ago. Sadly we now have a faction of society that deem the 'Good ole Days" as those when Women couldn't own land or vote, Blacks were subservient and who ever could conceive of an American born Japanese or Korean desiring a place in a White society? I'll call them fools for the fact that the idiots are like someone intentionally spreading a virus to harm certain people but all too ignorant to understand the concept that viruses aren't selective in it's affecting a victim, thus the fool become a victim by his/her device. People as yourself "Made America Great" and it doesn't need dismantling, only tweaking in a few areas....I found that ignorance won't be eradicated by outside intervention, it will lesson itself by a society of racially diverse people, which is the real motivator behind Trump and his minions efforts.

‘National satisfaction’ reaches 15-year high, ‘greatly increases’ Trump reelection
by Paul Bedard
| February 20, 2020 10:03 AM



People are practically giddy with the economic improvement under President Trump, and they believe by a 2-1 margin that it will only get better.

The latest Gallup survey also found that the good feelings have helped Trump to sustain his highest approval rating at 49%, which “greatly increases Trump's chances of being re-elected.”

In the survey, 45% are satisfied with the state of the nation. It hasn’t been that high since 2005, shortly after former President George W. Bush’s second inauguration.

“Trump's elevated job approval rating comes at a time when Americans are increasingly positive about the state of the nation. The percentage who are satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S. had already improved from 36% to 41% in a Jan. 3-16 poll, before the rise in Trump's job approval rating in late January. The latest survey finds a further increase in national satisfaction, with 45% now satisfied, the highest since February 2005,” said the Gallup analysis.

It came with several other notable economic numbers that show American confidence in the Trump economy:

63% of U.S. adults rate current economic conditions as either excellent or good. Just 9% rate them as poor.
By 61% to 33%, people say the economy is getting better rather than worse.
Gallup's Economic Confidence Index, a summary of ratings of current conditions and whether the economy is getting better or worse, is +41. This is essentially the same as last month, but both readings represent a return to the prior high of +44 in October 2000.
It was the latest positive headline from Gallup for Trump, a string that started before the Senate trial on his House impeachment.

It also comes as other polls show that the public believes that Trump will win reelection in the fall.

But as with much in American politics, the partisan split was huge.

Still, in its “bottom line” analysis, Gallup said that key election factors are falling in place for Trump’s reelection:

"Americans are more positive about the state of the nation than they have been in over a decade, and Trump and the GOP appear to be benefiting. Still, in this era of extreme party polarization, that puts his approval rating at 49%, as Republicans' already high ratings have risen further while Democrats' negative opinions of him aren't budging. Independents' ratings of Trump have improved, but they are still more likely to disapprove than approve of the job he is doing.


The significance of the trend is clear. An approval rating near 50% greatly increases Trump's chances of being reelected, a prospect that seemed unlikely with his approval stuck near 40% for most of his term."

Former longtime U.S. Republican Congressman Tom Coleman says: Trump's danger to America has reached the point where Presidents Carter, Clinton, Bush, and Obama must issue a joint statement and hold a joint press conference to call for the removal from office of the President. They owe it to the nation.
