Political language is designed to make less sound truthful and murder respectable and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. George Orwell
Justice consists not in being neutral between right and wrong, but finding out the right and upholding it, wherever found, against the wrong. Theodore Roosevelt
Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. Thomas Jefferson
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it. Frederic Bastiat
The impeachment charade continued with many witnesses who never heard our President’s phone call to Zelensky or even read the transcript of same. The recently elected conservative Ukrainian President Zelensky has promised to fight the corruption in his nation. Our President wanted to be sure that Zelensky was a man of his word before we gave him American tax dollars to help him clean up his country. Once Trump felt Ukraine was on the right track, he acknowledged aid for them to fight the Russians. Please note that aid to any foreign country is unconstitutional.
The destruction of Donald Trump must be accomplished by the globalist establishment elitists who know that Hillary’s loss hung an albatross around the necks of those who want to destroy this nation’s liberties. They continue their fight against the man who won and the people who supported him, those people who, with our President, love freedom.
The socialist (read that communist) left and many of those on the right who masquerade as conservatives hate Donald Trump. Both former Bush presidents willingly voted for the democratic socialist, Hillary Clinton. The left has baselessly spent three years accusing our President of everything from being a Russian mole to obstructing justice. They even claim he’s cheated on his taxes and demand eight years of his tax filings despite never requiring same from previous presidents. The left has claimed President Trump has violated the Constitution when that is exactly what they themselves are doing. Their actions are fracturing our nation.
All but two of the “witnesses” who have testified in this impeachment hearing hoax are not even valid sources. Hearsay is not allowed in a court of law, but is promulgated by shifty Schiff who is charging Trump with a quid pro quo. In other words, they’re claiming Trump was saying to Zelensky, “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.”
Americans know this is done in politics all the time, despite the fact that this is not what the President was doing, but now they’ve changed the charges to extortion and bribery despite the fact that not one Schiff witness has used either term.
Alexander Vindman and Jennifer Williams
Obama illegally spied on his political enemies and most of us knew all about it. The day before corrupt cop Comey told President-elect Trump about the phony dossier, he met with Barack Obama in the oval office along with Joe Biden, Susan Rice, John Brennan and James Clapper. They all talked about the dossier. This was an Obama job, not a full-fledged Deep State job. But if you want to talk about impeachments, that was an offense by a sitting president that should have been considered.
On November 19th, there were two witnesses testifying at the shifty Schiff impeachment hearings who actually heard the July 25th phone call. Schiff claimed these two were star witnesses. Jennifer Williams is a State Department employee detailed to Pence’s office, and Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman serves as the Director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council (NSC). Vindman has been a registered democrat for at least ten years. His job at the National Security Council is to write policy memos, schedule meetings and keep minutes of conversations with foreign diplomats. That’s why he was on the July 25 call.
Williams told the committee behind closed doors that the call between Trump and Zelensky was “very positive” and the two men did not discuss Trump’s push for investigations of Democrats. Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, a National Security advisor to Mike Pence, wrote in a letter released by the White House on Tuesday that he had “no concerns” about the phone call and backed up Jennifer Williams’ testimony from earlier in the day.
Alexander Semyon Vindman (né Aleksandr Semyonovich Vindman) and his identical twin brother, Yevgeny, were born to a Jewish family in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, Soviet Union, now Ukraine. Vindman’s father brought them to America when they were three.
Regarding the July 25th phone call between Presidents Trump and Zelensky, Vindman stated, “I was concerned by the call. I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. Government’s support of Ukraine.” In his testimony, Vindman stated that he made a report to an intelligence official about what he heard during Trump’s call with the Ukrainian President and felt what the President mentioned during the phone conversation was “improper.” Watch Vindman’s opening statement as a witness.
Several talking heads have suggested that Vindman is the source for the leaker. He made the mistake of admitting that he told two other people about the call; was one of them the leaker (whistleblower)? It was Congressman Devin Nunes who suggested that it was Vindman who ran out of the room after the July 25th phone call and called his buddy Eric Ciaramella and leaked the details of the phone call to him, and then it was Ciaramella who ran over to Schiff and became the leaker.
(CIA Agent Ciaramella is a registered Democrat who previously worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan. His name has been tossed around on social media platforms for weeks and is known by many on Capitol Hill.) And it appears Schiff may have accidentally leaked the alleged whistleblower’s name in the transcript of a witness testimony.
When Vindman heard this call and was disturbed, he never went to his boss, Tim Morrison, who is a Trump supporter. Instead he went to a lawyer.
Vindman now claims, like the leaker, that he’s afraid for his life. The WSJ actually had an article stating that Vindman was afraid for his life and he and his family are now in a secure place on an Army base. What a pile of dung. If anyone is ever afraid for their lives, it’s those who expose the rot in the Democratic Party which long ago became the Socialist Democrats.
Benghazi hero Mark Geist, a retired Marine, destroyed impeachment witness Alexander Vindman, saying he’s a “traitor” and a “disgrace to all who have served” in the U.S. Armed Forces. Geist slammed the showboating Vindman for suggesting that he sets U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine. “For the record, the President sets foreign policy, not some mid-level military grunt. Anyone in the military understands that there is a chain of command — and the POTUS sits at the top. It was that way under Barack Obama, and it’s the same way under Donald Trump.”
Geist is right, Vindman is guilty of rank insubordination.
However, it was Obama who was afraid of angering Putin, which is why he denied Ukraine any assistance when Russia annexed Crimea from them. Trump came in, assessed this is not good, and he immediately set out to prepare the transfer of military assistance long promised and denied by Obama to Ukraine. So, why did this temporary delay by Trump of aid to Ukraine galvanize these people into such action while three years of no aid was provided by Obama.
Ambassador Gordon Sondland
Impeachment witness, Gordon Sondland is the United States Ambassador to the European Union. Sondland is also the founder and former chairman of Provenance Hotels and co-founder of the Merchant bank Aspen Capital. He is a Jeb Bush Republican. He donated a million dollars to Trump’s presidential inauguration committee in 2017, but he also made large donations to George W. Bush and to Republican presidential candidates John McCain and Willard Romney.
Sondland delivered a private deposition before the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight Committees on October 17, testifying that he told Bill Taylor, the U.S. Charge d’affaires for Ukraine, that President Trump sought “nothing” from Ukraine and that there was no “quid pro quo” during the president’s July 25 telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
However, before testifying on Wednesday, November 20, Sondland modified what he said in his closed-door speech before the transcript was released. Sondland said he presumed that there was a quid pro quo, but that he didn’t have any basis for that presumption other than what he had read in the media or heard other people say.
Mainstream media screamed that Sondland admitted there was a quid pro quo, and he claimed that Rudy Giuliani, VP Mike Pence, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, as well as acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo all knew that Trump wanted a quid pro quo. Under questioning by Republicans, Sondland admitted that his presumption of a link between aid and investigations had been speculation.
When Schiff asked Sondland if he knew about Hunter Biden and Burisma, he claimed he did not. And when Schiff asked Sondland about a quid pro quo (Trump demanding an investigation of Biden and Burisma from President Zelensky before there would be aid, and security assistance offered to Ukraine), he says to Sondland, “Is this an accurate reflection of your discussion with the president?”
Sondland answered, “I believe I just asked him an open-ended question, Mr. Chairman. What do you want from Ukraine? I keep hearing all these different ideas and theories and this and that. What do you want? And, it was a very short, abrupt conversation. He was not in a good mood. And he just said,” ‘I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky to do the right thing.’ “Something to that effect.” Watch the exchange.
U.S. Representative Earl Blumenauer has been running a boycott of Sondland’s wife’s real estate business and their Providence hotels. Sounds like witness intimidation…and Blumenauer tweeted, “Gordon Sondland, Welcome to the Resistance.”
Adam Schiff and Ukraine
In my October article, Ukrainian Corruption is Socially Acceptable Democratic Privilege, I mentioned that in 2013 Ukrainian Igor Pasternak held two different fund raisers for Rep. Adam Schiff asking for contributions between $1,000 and $2500. Pelosi and Loretta Sanchez have also used Pasternak. He is an arms dealer and has sold arms in places like Syria. Of course, Pelosi’s son Paul is also connected to Ukraine, as I mentioned in another article, Politicians and Their Families Are Playing in The Corrupt Ukrainian Sandbox.
There’s more on Adam Schiff’s relationship with the Ukraine. The Gateway Pundit has reported that according to CD Media, former Ukrainian official Oleksandr Onishchenko said Hunter Biden was receiving “off the books” payments from Burisma in the millions. And earlier this month the chief of Burisma Holdings was indicted in Ukraine. He has gone missing.
Democrat Adam Schiff is linked to both US corporations named in the $7.4 BILLION corruption case. Schiff is connected to both BlackRock and Franklin Templeton Investments, two companies that were named in the $7.4B Burisma/US-Ukraine corruption claim.
Ukrainian members of parliament have demanded the presidents of Ukraine and the United States, Volodymyr Zelensky and Donald Trump, investigate suspicions of the legalization of $7.4 billion by the “family” of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych through Black Rock California Mutual Income and Franklin Templeton Mutual Shares Fund which they said have ties to the U.S. Democratic Party.
At a press conference at the Interfax Ukraine agency on Wednesday, MP Andriy Derkach announced that deputies have received new materials from investigative journalists about international corruption and the participation of Ukrainian officials in it.
“Last week, November 14, the Prosecutor General’s Office announced a new suspicion to the notorious owner of Burisma, ex-Ecology Minister Zlochevsky. According to the suspicion, the Yanukovych family is suspected, in particular with legalizing of criminally obtained income through Franklin Templeton Investments, an investment fund carrying out purchases of external government loan bonds totaling $7.4 billion,” Derkach said.
For his part, MP Oleksandr Dubinsky from the Servant of the People faction said that according to investigators, “the Yanukovych ‘family’ illegally obtained $7.4 billion and laundered the funds through an investment fund close to some representatives of the U.S. Democratic Party in the form of external government loan bonds.”
Meanwhile, Derkach said that several facts indicate Franklin Templeton Investments’ relationship with the U.S. Democratic party.
“The son of Templeton’s founder, John Templeton Jr., was one of President Obama’s major campaign donors. Another fund-related character is Thomas Donilon, Managing Director of Black Rock Investment Institute, shareholder Franklin Templeton Investments, which has the largest share in the fund, and it is noteworthy that he was previously Obama’s national security advisor,” Derkach said.

Those who are guilty of the crimes continue to accuse the innocents of the very crimes they are committing. This is an Alinsky tactic that has been learned and used only too well.
