I heard Rush Limbaugh euphorically gush over his speech, American greatness, calling out the bad guys (Iran, don't know if Venezuela made the cut this time). And now I realize why I love cats so much. Cats are unabashed sadists, they play with their terrorized subjects before killing them but at least they don't drag them to the UN and brag about how morally superior they are, they aren't that cruel.

I don't know. The Orange One let an umbrella kick his ass. This robotic dog would tear him to pieces.

..."Stayed on script"... Who's script?

..."divide between those whose thirst for control deludes them into thinking they are destined to rule over others, and those people and nations who want only to rule themselves"...

..."“hopefully we will never have to use this power.”...

Really? I think you all did!

I watched his speech this afternoon. The parts on Iran are troubling. I did like his taking on China. The line "globalism exerted a religous pull over past leaders" sure seems accurate to me. (~11.10 mark)

Pelosi is going to go full impeachment? They must want to lose big so they can reset for 2024.

D I said who probably wrote the script. Ah, I see, another European nutter with a conspiracy theory.

Umbrella?

It will be interesting to see if Nancy has the votes if and when the full House vote to commence impeachment proceedings. Tulsi Gabbard on an impeachment inquiry: "I think that impeachment would be terribly divisive for our already very divided country"

This is a perfect spot for Trump, as he campaigns as the persecuted one. The Democrats don’t want to get the zeitgeist that elected Trump in the first place. Their Russia Collusion has fallen flat. The Ukraine “quid pro quo” will likely seal Biden’s fate.

He couldn't figure out how to close an umbrella while boarding Air Force 1.

Naw, it probably has a recharge pad that it steps on, to keep its little feet warm.

Why do we continue to host the U.N.? What has it accomplished for mankind in all of its time on our American Soil?.

Let them take their U.N. and move it to their sparkling city in the sky in Astana.

Impeaching Trump is a BAD BAD idea and I am not even a Trump fan/voter although I agree with some of his positions.
If he did try to manipulate Ukraine for Biden dirt its not different from what Biden is alleged to have done in removing the prosecutor investigating his son's Ukraine company.
They are all dirty.
At a time of such tensions in the ME I find this move to be very worrying.

Trump WANTS Nancy and her band of Trotskyite-Maoists to impeach him.

catherine

Huummm...?

NBC reporting that Trump called Pelosi today and asked “if they could work something out on this whole whistleblower thing.”

Lars

If the House votes to impeach, which will probably happen, it will be up to the Senate Republicans to vote for or against removal. Since there is an election next year, I am not convinced that Sen. McConnell will let that vote happen, since he has 22 members in that election and he would not want that to be the defining issue for them, especially if Trump loses his reelection, which may very well happen. He is more concerned with remaining as Majority Leader than anything else and he is facing reelection too.

Your whole thing falls to pieces if the evidence is not there for Trump having demanded a quid from Zelensky. What will be the next "issue" that your side will raise after that?

Flavius

If Trump asked for, even if he demanded, an investigation into what is a reasonable suspicion of corruption, he is merely doing his duty as President. He would have been better advised to do this through Pompeo or Barr, but then that's not Trump. If he asked for, or demanded, a result, that would be another matter. Trump also as President has the responsibility for conducting the Foreign Policy of the United States and it is within his authority to judge whether FP considerations preempt law enforcement considerations. The problem with Beltway Democrats is that they have had a problem from Day 1 with letting Trump be President and waiting the four years to contest his office in the regular way. They have cried wolf so many times they have lost their voice. Nobody outside of their Amen chorus in the media and similarly deranged political junkies cares any more. The net result of this most recent gambit is likely to be the extinction of Joe Biden's campaign, the potential prosecution of his son, and a deepening of the national disgust for the way things are done in Washington, where the money is... oh, and increasing the prospects for the Donald's reelection next year enormously.

Lars

Asking a foreign country to help your political campaign is a crime in US law. As far as the "quid" it does not have to be explicit, only implied. This should be seen as a trigger. There is plenty of evidence of lawless behavior and I expect some of that will be included in any articles of impeachment.

But my main point is that the GOP does not want to come down too hard on the Trump side, since it could backfire rather harshly. You also have to take into consideration that this will now be the main issue in the nation for months and nobody knows how that will play out so far.

Nixon had wide support in the GOP once, but as the evidence was accumulated, that support disappeared rather quickly.

Barbara Ann

Astana is now called "Nur-Sultan" after Kazakhstan's late founding president. Who knows, one day NYC itself might be renamed in honor of the founding president of an autonomous Socialist Republic. As there is already an Alexandria, NY they'll probably call it "Ocasio-Cortez".

Barbara Ann

Being "led to the faggots" could be misconstrued, but one assumes you refer to the combustible kind under the stake. Nancy in the role of Grand Inquisitrix (in the Inquisition that everyone expected) is just perfect.

The “transcript” segments that I’ve seen don’t appear to show any impropriety by Trump in any way, at least compared to Biden bragging about having the Ukrainian prosecutor fired for investigating his son, Hunter, by withholding US financing. The reality could very well be very different. The actual collusion and election interference and arm twisting of a foreign government may have been the Democrats and the Obama administration. Clearly the $1.5 billion “investment” by the Chinese in a private equity fund launched by Hunter Biden and John Kerry’s stepson with no prior investment experience, two weeks after Hunter joins Joe on an official visit to China smells very fishy. Maybe who was paying whom for what during the Obama administration should also be investigated.

The problem with Trump it seems to me is he keeps his hiring pool strictly in the Swamp and consequently he can’t turn the investigatory power of his administration on those that may have actually engaged in corruption and election interference. He’s always reacting to the next hysterical charge. Now that Russia Collusion is a flop the Swamp have got the “whistleblower” quid pro quo.

Lars

Trump did not as for political help/ You Democrats want to see that in the transcript but it is not there.

Lars

He did ask for "a favor". And that "favor" was help with investigating Biden & Son. I am sure there will be many weak excuses for this, but now it will not matter. What will matter is what the House committee will put in the articles of impeachment. There is a rich environment to choose from.

The question the Republican Senators will dread is what they would have done if the presidents name was Obama.

turcopolier

lars

No "quid" was asked for. You are seeking to overthrow a legally elected president. you and your fellow leftists are seeking to frame this man. You will pay a high political price.

J

I wonder if Pelosi or her husband were involved with Epstein, and if so what kind of blackmail did Epstein [Mossad] have over them.
