Impeachment Hearings Begin...
#1
Today is the first day of the impeachment hearings sham that the corrupt democrats are using in hopes of leading the blind into getting rid of the man the majority of American people elected to be our President; our voice/choice be dammed!
I admit this topic triggers me on so many levels, but I think it is important to cover it, so I'll try to bring you what I can on the hearings as they progress, and I'll use views from both sides of the political parties to make my coverage unbiased, no matter how much it makes me cringe.

First thing I've seen worthy of posting is this article from RedState:

Impeachment Updates: Devin Nunes Comes Hard In His Opening Statement, Adam Schiff Makes a Ridiculous Claim

Quote:Today we’ll see George Kent and Bill Taylor testify (see Adam Schiff Calls His First Public Witnesses and It Tells Us Everything).

But first, we get opening statements from Adam Schiff and Devin Nunes. Schiff’s statement was exactly what you’d expect. A boilerplate of grave language and lies. For example, he lied about Trump asking for a “favor” dealing with investigations Biden.

That’s clearly not in the transcript and did not happen. Biden was not brought up until a full page and a half later in the transcripts and was not couched as a favor.

Then Devin Nunes unleashed. While the Congressman can sometimes overplay his hand in some of his statements, this one hit the nail on the head.

Opening Statement for Kent and Taylor Hearing on Impeachment
November 13, 2019

In a July open hearing of this committee following publication of the Mueller report, the Democrats engaged in a last-ditch effort to convince the American people that President Trump is a Russian agent. That hearing was the pitiful finale of a three-year-long operation by the Democrats, the corrupt media, and partisan bureaucrats to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election.

After the spectacular implosion of their Russia hoax on July 24, in which they spent years denouncing any Republican who ever shook hands with a Russian, on July 25 they turned on a dime and now claim the real malfeasance is Republicans’ dealings with Ukraine.

In the blink of an eye, we’re asked to simply:
  • forget about Democrats on this committee falsely claiming they had “more than circumstantial evidence” of collusion between President Trump and the Russians;

  • forget about them reading fabrications of Trump-Russia collusion from the Steele dossier into the congressional record;

  • forget about them trying to obtain nude pictures of Trump from Russian pranksters who pretended to be Ukrainian officials;

  • forget about them leaking a false story to CNN, while he was testifying to our committee, claiming Donald Trump Jr. had colluded with Wikileaks;

  • and forget about countless other deceptions, large and small, that make them the last people on earth with the credibility to hurl more preposterous accusations at their political opponents.

And yet now we’re supposed to take these people at face value when they trot out a new batch of allegations. But anyone familiar with the Democrats’ scorched-earth war against President Trump would not be surprised to see all the typical signs that this is just a carefully orchestrated media smear campaign.
For example:
  • After vowing publicly that impeachment requires bipartisan support, Democrats are pushing impeachment forward without the backing of a single House Republican.

  • The witnesses deemed suitable for television by the Democrats were put through a closed-door audition process in a cult-like atmosphere in the basement of the Capitol, where the Democrats conducted secret depositions, released a flood of misleading and one-sided leaks, and later selectively released transcripts in a highly staged manner.

  • Violating their own guidelines, the Democrats repeatedly redacted from the transcripts the name of Alexandra Chalupa, a contractor for the Democratic National Committee who worked with Ukrainian officials to collect dirt on the Trump campaign, which she provided to the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

  • The Democrats rejected most of the Republicans’ witness requests, resulting in a horrifically one-sided process where crucial witnesses are denied a platform if their testimony doesn’t support the Democrats’ absurd accusations. Notably, they are trying to impeach the President for inquiring about Hunter Biden’s activities, yet they refused our request to hear from Biden himself.

  • The whistleblower was acknowledged to have a bias against President Trump, and his attorney touted a “coup” against the President and called for his impeachment just weeks after his election.

  • At a prior hearing, Democrats on this committee read out a purely fictitious rendition of the President’s phone call with President Zelensky. They clearly found the real conversation to be insufficient for their impeachment narrative, so they just made up a new one.

And most egregiously, the staff of Democrats on this committee had direct discussions with the whistleblower before his or her complaint was submitted to the Inspector General, and Republicans cannot get a full account of these contacts because the Democrats broke their promise to have the whistleblower testify to this committee. Democrat members hid these contacts from Republicans and lied about them to the American people on national television.

I’ve noted before that the Democrats have a long habit of accusing Republicans of offences they themselves are committing. Recall that:
  • For years they accused the Trump campaign of colluding with Russia when they themselves were colluding with Russia by funding and spreading the Steele dossier, which relied on Russian sources.

  • And now they accuse President Trump of malfeasance in Ukraine when they themselves are culpable. The Democrats cooperated in Ukrainian election meddling, and they defend Hunter Biden’s securing of a lavishly paid position with a corrupt Ukrainian company, all while his father served as vice president.

Despite this hypocrisy, the Democrats are advancing their impeachment sham. But we should not hold any hearings at all until we get answers to three crucial questions the Democrats are determined to avoid asking:
  • First, what is the full extent of the Democrats’ prior coordination with the Whistleblower and who else did the Whistleblower coordinate this effort with?

  • Second, what is the full extent of Ukraine’s election meddling against the Trump campaign?

  • And third, why did Burisma hire Hunter Biden, what did he do for them, and did his position affect any U.S. government actions under the Obama administration?

These questions will remain outstanding because Republicans were denied the right to call witnesses who know the answers.

What we will witness today is a televised theatrical performance staged by the Democrats. Ambassador Taylor and Mr. Kent—I’d like to welcome you here, and congratulate you for passing the Democrats’ Star Chamber auditions held for the last six weeks in the basement of the Capitol. It seems you agreed, wittingly or unwittingly, to participate in a drama. But the main performance—the Russia hoax—has ended, and you’ve been cast in the low-rent Ukrainian sequel.

I’ll conclude by noting the immense damage the politicized bureaucracy has done to Americans’ faith in government. Though executive branch employees are charged with implementing the policy set by our President, who is elected by and responsible to the American people, elements of the civil service have decided that they, not the President, are really in charge.

Thus, as we’ll learn in these hearings:
  • After expressing skepticism of foreign aid and concern about foreign corruption on the campaign trail, President Trump outraged the bureaucracy by acting skeptically about foreign aid and expressing concerns about foreign corruption.

  • Officials’ alarm at the President’s actions was typically based on second-hand, third-hand, and even fourth-hand rumors and innuendo.

  • They believed it was an outrage for President Trump to fire an ambassador, even though the President has full authority to retain or remove diplomats for any reason at any time.

  • Officials showed a surprising lack of interest in the indications of Ukrainian election meddling that deeply concerned the President at whose pleasure they serve.

  • Despite all their dissatisfaction with President Trump’s Ukraine policy, the President approved the supply of weapons to Ukraine, unlike the previous administration, which provided blankets as defense against invading Russians.

By undermining the President who they are supposed to be serving, elements of the FBI, the Department of Justice, and now the State Department, have lost the confidence of millions of Americans who believe that their vote should count for something. It will take years, if not decades, to restore faith in these institutions.
This spectacle is doing great damage to our country. It’s nothing more than an impeachment process in search of a crime.

Compare the two men, and we see what Schiff’s game is going to be. His goal is to flood the hearings with as many unsubstantiated and assumed claims as possible. If he muddies the waters enough, it won’t matter what he can or can’t actually prove. At least that’s his plan.

We’ll keep you updated here at RedState as more noteworthy things come out of the hearings.

I'll post Shifty Shit's opening remarks when I find them. What he said in opening is embedded in video clips within the article, which I can't post here.  Click the title to watch them.


I'm sure more will be coming out from both sides as the day goes by. 

(Lord, help me to get through this without bursting a blood vein. Amen! )

This is getting bad, but it was to be expected. If you drain the swamp some very ugly and evil thing will try to destroy you.
Strange how the Left is so powerfully using islam and has weaponized the LGBT to fight Christianity. Very evil times we live in.
Many people say that all evil needs is for good people to do nothing, but we must remember if good is to beat evil it must become more evil than the evil its fighting, then somehow find its way back to good

Right now all I'm seeing are are bits and pieces of what is being asked/answered in the hearing from Twitter members. I'm waiting for some news clips to share with you guys, which probably won't be until later this evening.

This hearing isn't going to fly with Republicans. This is the way a court would be run in the old Soviet Union, not America. Our President isn't even being allowed due process! 

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ISN'T BEING ALLOWED DUE PROCESS!

Let that sink in! 

That is what the DemoRats have turned our political courts into.

To summarize what's happened:

Bill Taylor, the Democrats star witness, has basically admitted today that he got virtually all of his hearsay info from Gordon Sondland
We have Sondland, in writing, admitting he really didn't know what happened with Ukrainian aid
This is a farce

BREAKING: Ukrainian Officials Speak Out — Say Schiff’s Upcoming Special Witness Lev Parnas Is COMPLETE LIAR About US Aid to Ukraine


[Image: lev-parnes-600x338.jpg]
Lev Parnes – Adam Schiff’s great Ukrainian Hope


Quote:Earlier this week FOX News learned that Lev Parnas was prepared to testify before the Schiff show trial against the Trump Administration.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman are the two associates of Rudy Giuliani from Ukraine who were indicted by the Southern District of New York in October.
 
FOX News reporter John Roberts confirmed that Lev Parnas will likely be the Democrat Party’s surprise witness in the Schiff’s show trial.

Ukrainian officials condemned Lev Parnas and say he is lying!
What Parnas said IS A COMPLETE LIE!
Benjamin Goldman at Pen Media reported:
Quote:Serhiy Shefir, the first aid to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, revealed that Democrat witness Lev Parnas lied about a meeting where he claimed he threatened to withhold military aid.
Parnas told the New York Times last week that he and Shefir discussed withholding $400 million in aid form Ukraine unless they investigated the Bidens. Shefir, however, doesn’t remember it that way.
Serhiy Shefir told Kyiv Post, an English language Ukrainian newspaper, that his meeting with Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman was “neither long nor informative”.
According to him, the only thing that Parnas and Fruman discussed was trying to set up a meeting between President Zelensky and Rudy, something they apparently didn’t even take seriously.
Quote:“We said that we will gladly meet with him, but only officially, after the inauguration, and that there can be no meeting now.”
Shefir said that Fruman and Parnas told him the point of the meeting was “they want to help this country” since they are Ukrainians themselves. Shefir, however, was not convinced.
Quote:“The meeting took place before we started at the job, and we didn’t get very deep into what their ‘help’ would be. These were general words said over a cup of tea.”
Serhiy Shefir also said that he didn’t really give any weight to either Lev Parnas or Igor Fruman, saying they didn’t consider them representatives of President Trump.
Quote:“We didn’t perceive them as representatives of the White House. Even now, I don’t understand what their role was. It was a meeting of private citizens with a private citizen.”

Please, tell me she's on drugs.


Quote:"...House Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued on Thursday that the President's actions in the Ukraine
scandal constitute "bribery" and that President Donald Trump has admitted to it himself, the latest
and most high-profile Democrat to use that word when describing Trump's conduct.

"What the President has admitted to and says it's perfect, I've said it's perfectly wrong. It's bribery,"
the California Democrat said at her weekly news conference Thursday.
Trump has repeatedly claimed that his now-famous July phone call with Ukrainian President
Volodymyr Zelensky was "perfect."..."


Quote:"...Pelosi was asked during her news conference if bribery could be an article of impeachment against
the President. "I don't know about that. We haven't even made a decision to impeach," she said in response.
"That's what the inquiry is about."..."

Yes, she's on drugs. probably something derived from fetal stem cells in an effort to obtain immortality. Still, she's the most dangerous kind of doper - a stoned Socialist Operative with a mission!

Thanks for this thread, Mystic. Grace will not allow the proceedings to cross the TV screen - I think she's afraid I might shoot the TV, thereby rendering it somewhat less effective at getting TV shows into the house. Because of that, this is my source to keep abreast of what is going on with it.

What Grace seems not to realize is that I am far more likely to chuck a rock through a Christmas show being aired before Thanksgiving than I am to launch one through my source of information on what direction the world is taking to hell in a handbasket. I  want to know which direction to zig, and when, when the US zags.

You're welcome.

I don't think they had any hearings today, at least I haven't seen anything about it.
There are lots of opinion pieces about yesterday's hearings though from news outlets.
We all have an opinion, and mine is, they are all full of shit!

I'm at the point where I think Shifty Shit might be a plant to make the Democrat party look as bad as possible and swing votes over to President Trump.  Could he really be so stupid to think he can get away with what he's doing?

Well... I guess it is possible, but good grief!  If he's for real, Washington DC is much worse than we imagined.  tinyhuh

Probably not. I'm thinking that after their hard fail during yesterday's fiasco, they're having to fall back and regroup, to see if there is anything at all they can salvage from it, or to see if there is any escape route that allows them to retain any dignity at all...

... but there isn't. They're trapped like rodentia. Are you starting to see why Trump goaded them so hard into trying to impeach him?

Yes, I think Pres. Trump wanted this all along to show the public the Dems true colors.

Here is a little bit of coverage that Quite Frankly went over in his show tonight.

This one is four hours, so it might show the entire hearing.

I think one of the main hurdles here is the subtle confusing manner that Schiff and the media
revel in the right to free speech and using that right to speak falsely.

It is a shit-show without doubt, but I'd have thought there would be someone in the background
taking the temperature of the public audience and advising Mr. Wide-Eyes on how to shape his
weak Hearing.

Maybe acrobats or a guy spraying fire from his ass would improve the interest?
I know BIAD's spinning 'jugs-tassels' trick always goes down well at the local Old People's Home,
although it makes him dizzy afterwards.

This cannot end well for Democrats.
