Day Four Still A Bore, The Deep State On Display, Debate Night

Day Four, Still A Bore
Today it was Gordon Sondland's turn in the impeachment sham spotlight.  Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, suggested there was a "potential quid pro quo" between the Trump Administration and Ukraine.  But his remarks also undercut the Democrats' primary line of attack.

Day 3 Nothing To See, A More Important Hearing, Settlements Are Not The Obstacle

Day 3, Nothing To See
The House Intelligence Committee resumed its sham impeachment hearings today. A parade of witnesses will pass through the committee this week.  I predict that just like last week, there will be nothing new to see, no major bombshells or revelations. 

Trump Stands With Our Troops, Barr Blasts The Left, The Pigskin Prima Donna

Trump Stands With Our Troops
Late Friday afternoon, the White House announced that President Trump had intervened in the cases of three U.S. military personnel -- Army Lt. Clint Lorance, Army Green Beret Maj. Matt Golsteyn and Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher -- who were convicted of various crimes related to their service in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Trump issued full pardons to Lorance and Golsteyn while restoring Gallagher's rank and pay.

Day Two Nothing New, It's Bribery Now, Good News From The Courts

Day Two, Nothing New
Marie Yovanovitch, the former ambassador to Ukraine, testified today before Adam Schiff's sham impeachment committee.  President Trump recalled Ambassador Yovanovitch in April.  It's clear from her testimony that "Hell hath no fury like a diplomat scorned."  Here are some observations.

Ukraine First, The Hearsay Hearings, Taking On Russia

Ukraine First?
As I thought more last night about yesterday's testimony during the House impeachment hearing, I found myself getting angry.  Let me explain why.
The two key witnesses selected by the House majority to kickoff this high-profile spectacle, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent and Ambassador William Taylor, are experts on Ukraine. 
It was clear from their remarks that they both have a real heart for Ukraine.  They really want to help Ukraine and are very concerned about President Trump's views and policies.

Deep State On Display, Nunes Demands Answers

Deep State On Display
Today, the House Intelligence Committee (an apparent contradiction in terms) held its first public impeachment hearing against President Trump.  Here are some initial observations.

Who's In Charge?
We are learning more about former Ambassador Nikki Haley's claim that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly tried to recruit her to join their resistance to President Trump's agenda. 

Haley's Bombshell, Impeachment Part II, Honoring Our Heroes

Haley's Bombshell
Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley dropped a bombshell during an interview yesterday with CBS's Norah O'Donnell.  The interview served as a kickoff for her new book, which I haven't read yet. 

The Fall & Our Future, The Culture War, 2020 Update

The Fall & Our Future
Tomorrow marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.  I'll never forget the emotion I felt watching that stark symbol of communism come tumbling down.
Young Germans poured out of their homes and overwhelmed the security guarding the piece of concrete that physically and psychologically separated East and West Berlin.  They quickly began demolishing it piece by piece.

Coup Has Started, Order In The Courts, Misplaced Priorities

"Coup Has Started"
Mark Zaid is not a household name.  Not yet at least.  But you're probably going to hear a lot about him in the days ahead.  Zaid is one of the lawyers representing the CIA leaker who colluded with Adam Schiff's staffers on the House Intelligence Committee to trigger the impeachment of President Trump.
As we noted in yesterday's report, Donald Trump, Jr., named the alleged "whistleblower" in a tweet yesterday -- Eric Ciaramella.  But I want to focus on Mr. Zaid.
