Ukraine President Dismantles Democratic Impeachment Narrative, Reiterates ‘No Quid Pro Quo’

Zelensky’s words were damning, to say the least.

Published

on

With another round of impeachment hearings set to begin on Wednesday, the Democrats seem hellbent on bringing the RussiaGate conspiracy theory back into the conversation, likely due to the underwhelming evidence that they presented in regard to Ukraine.

Polling has showed that the first found of hearings, held in the House Intelligence Committee, have failed to move the needle of public opinion in regard to impeaching President Donald Trump.  In some cases, support for moving forward with the process has even declined – a worrying development for the Democrats looking to reverse the results of the 2016 election.

Now, in a statement that could spell even more trouble for House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler, the President of Ukraine has made a statement that stands in direct contrast to the liberal narrative.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a newly-released interview that he never discussed “quid pro quo” with President Donald Trump, once again denying any link between the release of U.S. military aid in exchange for investigations.

“I never talked to the president from the position of a quid pro quo. That’s not my thing,” Zelensky said in a wide-ranging interview with TIME magazine released Monday.

He continued with an even more damning statement.

“I don’t want us to look like beggars. But you have to understand. We’re at war,” he added. “If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.”

With less than 48 hours remaining before Nadler kicks off the next phase of impeachment, there has been no official word on what witnesses could be called this week and the rules for the proceedings are still somewhat shrouded in mystery.

This has incensed Republicans who have long complained that the entire fiasco has been lopsided in the favor of the Democrats.

Kellyanne Conway Rips Impeachment Witness: ‘Who The Hell Are You, Lady?’

Given the unspoken alliance between the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, this sort of partisan tomfoolery doesn’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon, either. 

Published

Despite the patent absurdity of it, political discrimination seems to be at an all time high here in the United States, thanks to the mainstream media’s constant need for conflict to drive rantings.

The infotainment industry needs the US population to be divided, and angrily, in order to bring in the beaucoup bucks that their advertisers give them for commercial break real estate.  This means that, every time we engage in pedantic arguments with one another on the basis of politics, we are feeding the machine that aims to drive us apart.

And it’s not just the angry leftists on Facebook who are a problem here, it’s also those who find themselves with a soapbox from which to spout their divisive drivel.

Longtime White House adviser Kellyanne Conway recognizes just what’s at stake here, and is taking one of the Democrats’ impeachment witnesses to task for their attempts to keep us at each others’ throats.

One of the star witnesses for Congressional Democrats in President Trump‘s impeachment inquiry, Professor Pamela Karlan, should be ashamed of herself for showing such arrogance and looking down on half of America, said Kellyanne Conway on “Fox & Friends” Thursday.

Conway accused Democrats of using Trump’s Ukraine phone call as an excuse to boot him from office, before highlighting Karlan’s comments about conservatives, which were read aloud on Wednesday by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

The Stanford law professor was quoted as saying, “Liberals tend to cluster more. Conservatives, especially very conservative people, tend to spread out more, perhaps because they don’t even want to be around themselves.”

Conway was rightfully brutal in her assessment.

“Let’s stop pretending it has a damn thing to do with the 15 witnesses over two committees, the Democrats have called over the last couple of weeks,” Conway told Fox News. “One, out of those 15 witnesses, has said that he or she has ever talked to the president about Ukraine.

Conway accused Karlan of “look[ing] her nose down” at average Americans and blue-collar workers

“She thinks that you are less than her. And I’ve had it… who the hell are you lady, to look down on half the country?”

Given the unspoken alliance between the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, this sort of partisan tomfoolery doesn’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon, either.

Nancy Pelosi Snaps at Reporter, Scolds Him for Saying She ‘Hates’ the President

Where there was once a calm confidence with Nancy Pelosi, there is now little more than angst-ridden finger wagging and invocations of past patriots whom she has never met.

Published

on

After years of “resistance” to the very idea of President Donald J. Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now insisting, in no uncertain terms, that she doesn’t “hate” him.

Yesterday’s impeachment hearings were a bit of a sideshow.  With no fact witnesses present, the entire affair was reduced to little more than an attempt by the left to somehow justify the thin evidence they’ve gathered so far.  By stacking the deck with three Democratically-called witnesses to the Republicans’ single scholar, the hearing appeared to be nothing more than a maneuver meant to convince the nation that they hadn’t been working to impeach the President simply because they wanted to.

That didn’t work, however, with Georgia Rep. Doug Collins openly and loudly demonstrating that the Democrats have been looking to impeach Donald Trump for years, based solely on their disdain for him personally.

When confronted with Collins’ words this morning, Nancy Pelosi lost her cool.

Sinclair reporter James Rosen had asked Pelosi: “Do you hate the president?”

“I don’t hate anybody,” she initially shot back. She wagged her finger and pointed at Rosen, telling him not to accuse her of hating someone. Rosen denied doing so.

Pelosi wasn’t done there.

“As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone. I was raised in a way that is a heart full of love and always pray for the president. And I still pray for the president. And I pray for the president all the time, so don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that,” she said.

President Trump even weighed in on Pelosi’s tantrum.

Where there was once a calm confidence with Nancy Pelosi, there is now little more than angst-ridden finger wagging and invocations of past patriots whom she has never met.

Pence Pushed to Fire Flynn Say Newly Released Notes from Mueller and FBI

These documents demonstrate a great deal of drama occurring on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Published

on

President Trump’s arrival in Washington DC will likely serve as an historical marker for future generations.

Trump, in a stunning rebuke of the status quo, was elected President by We The People after promising to “drain the swamp” in Washington DC – a metaphor that has come to encapsulate a very broad and determined attempt to root out political corruption and collusion that, left unchecked, would tips the scales of power away from the people and into the hands of the public servants they’ve selected to serve them.

Of course, this Deep State cabal hasn’t yet been vanquished.  Rather, they are squirming ever more violently, writhing even, under the thumb of a political newcomer who is ready to tear it all down and start from scratch.

This flailing has been readily apparent throughout Trump’s first term, with a number of politicians and political appointees finding themselves at odds with one another, even in the White House itself.

Now, newly released documents from the FBI show that these conflicts went all the way to the top.  In these documents, former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates described infighting between one of the President’s most valuable advisers, General Michael Flynn, and Vice President Mike Pence.

Gates pinned some of the decision to fire national security adviser Michael Flynn on Vice President Mike Pence.

“Gates said Pence went to Trump about firing Flynn and he thought it was one of the few times Pence pushed Trump hard like that,” Mueller’s team wrote in the summary of Gates’ April 2018 cooperation interview.

Investigators also noted that Gates thought Trump and Flynn had had a good relationship, and that Trump didn’t want to fire his national security adviser but “felt like he had no choice” after Flynn lied to Pence about his contact with the Russian ambassador.

General Flynn is currently embroiled in a legal scandal surrounding his conservations with the FBI during their involvement in the Special Counsel investigation by Robert Mueller, in which he and his legal team claim that Flynn was being treated unfairly by the Bureau during his original questioning.

Rudy Heads to Ukraine to Expose Corruption Being Ignored by Democratic Impeachment Circus

Rudy is finding facts while the House Democrats are simply attempting to shoehorn Trump’s actions into an ever-changing definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

Published

on

Today’s impeachment hearing has so far accomplished one thing and one thing only:  Exposing the Democrats’ desire to railroad the President’s actions into some malleable definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

Todays’ witnesses are a cadre of Constitutional scholars, three who agree with the “resistance” that Donald Trump has committed such improprieties and should be impeached, and one who dissents from that stance.  The questioning today has been notoriously fact-less, instead focusing on the process itself, and how the Democrats can squeeze Donald Trump into this mold.  The left has already decided that impeachment will move forward, and this is just their attempt at convincing the American people of what they’ve been insinuating all along.

In order to get to the actual bottom of this UkraineGate malarky, President Trump’s personal lawyer is on the ground in Europe, finding facts.

Giuliani met Tuesday with a former Ukrainian prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, in Budapest, The New York Times reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

On Wednesday, Giuliani traveled to Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, hoping to meet with other ex-Ukrainian prosecutors, including Viktor Shokin and Kostiantyn Kulyk, The New York Times reported.

Giuliani reportedly is also helping right-wing news network One America News produce episodes of a documentary series promoting his arguments against Democrats’ impeachment inquiry in the House.

Giuliani has been at the center of the impeachment controversy for some time, having been named by many of the Democrats’ fact witnesses as an integral piece of the UkraineGate puzzle.  President Trump has staunchly defended Rudy, however, indicating that any involvement the former NYC Mayor had with Ukrainian authorities was in the interest of rooting out corruption pursuant to the terms of America’s agreement with Kyiv regarding what it necessary for them to receive American aid money.

French President Issues Scathing Statement on ‘Stolen’ Footage Meant to Embarrass Trump

Macron was incensed that the videotape was even recorded.

Published

President Trump’s trip to London this week was a strange one, to say the least.  Not only was he away from Washington DC at a time in which the House Judiciary Committee could very well be deciding his political fate, but he found himself a participant in a number of confrontations, both willingly and unwillingly.

The first indication that this wasn’t your ordinary NATO summit came when Trump sat down for a joint public appearance with French President Emmanuel Macron in which the two world leaders seemed at odds, bickering over the reality on the ground as it pertains to the current strengths and weaknesses of the radical Islamic terror group ISIS.

Then, at a reception later in the day, Macron was seen speaking to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who himself was making some uncouth observations regarding President Trump.

Now, Macron is speaking out about the incident, and railing against those who used the footage to embarrass the US President.

FURIOUS French President Emmanuel Macron today hit out a “stolen” clip of him gossiping about Donald Trump.

Macron, 41, was caught on a hot mic chatting about Trump with Canadian PM Justin Trudeau at a Buckingham Palace gala last night.

When asked about the footage, he blasted: “I am not going to comment on stolen videos.

“That video wasn’t supposed to be filmed in that room”.

President Trump had earlier responded to the incident by asserting that Trudeau was “two-faced” and promptly announcing that he will be returning to Washington earlier than originally planned.

Impeachment Report Hypocrisy: POTUS ‘Undermined National Security’ by Investigating Corruption

After the release of the report, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham offered her own take on the summary.

Published

on

House Intel Chair Adam Schiff certainly has it out for President Donald Trump, this much is known, but just what lengths he would go to in order to smear the Commander in Chief in his impeachment report remained a bit of a mystery until today.

Schiff was responsible for the first bit of this latest impeachment debacle, which is now headed to the House Judiciary Committee for further hearings, and the report he has compiled from his piece of the investigation is wildly hyperbolic.

“President Trump’s scheme subverted U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine and undermined our national security in favor of two politically motivated investigations that would help his presidential reelection campaign,” the report said.

It said the inquiry “uncovered a months-long effort by President Trump to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.”

The President and the Republican Party have tried in vain to explain to Schiff and Co. that the President’s attempts to root out corruption in Ukraine were well within the bounds of his authority.

After the release of the report, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham offered her own take on the summary.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham swiftly hit back in a statement slamming the nature of the Intelligence Committee’s inquiry and claiming it failed to prove any wrongdoing on Trump’s part.

“At the end of a one-sided sham process, Chairman Schiff and the Democrats utterly failed to produce any evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump,” Grisham said. “This report reflects nothing more than their frustrations. Chairman Schiff’s report reads like the ramblings of a basement blogger straining to prove something when there is evidence of nothing.”

Earlier this week, a statement by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky reiterated that he felt no pressure or “quid pro quo” when speaking with President Trump, thoroughly blowing a hole in the entire Democratic narrative.
