Look at the date in the above screen-shot. Read the summary again after you pick yourself up from off the floor.
Adam Schiff and the Democratic Party are basing an impeachment of the President of the United States on…wait for it….a tweet?
This particular tweet happened one day after the phone call between Donald Trump and Volodymyr Zelenskiy. So, quick question- how does a Ukrainian in Poland know about the one particular in the phone call any of the news outlets didn’t know until late September?
On August 25th Ukrainian channel 112UA reported “Donald Trump congratulated his Ukrainian counterpart on the victory of his political force in the parliamentary election. He also expressed hope that the corruption cases that worsened Ukraine-U.S. relations would be investigated and solved fast.”
On September 21, RFERL reported, “U.S. President Donald Trump confirmed he spoke with Ukraine’s president about former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden during a July call that is now at the center of a political scandal threatening to hamper relations between the two countries.”
The one difference between the tweet @DebkaG sent and the initial report of the story is the mention of Joe Biden. That wasn’t public until Donald Trump confirmed it.
How did DebkaG know “specifically Joe Biden” was under investigation?
According to the New York Times– The whistle-blower who revealed that President Trump sought foreign help for his re-election and that the White House sought to cover it up is a C.I.A. officer who was detailed to work at the White House at one point, according to three people familiar with his identity.
The man has since returned to the C.I.A., the people said. Little else is known about him. His complaint made public Thursday suggested he was an analyst by training and made clear he was steeped in details of American foreign policy toward Europe, demonstrating a sophisticated understanding of Ukrainian politics and at least some knowledge of the law.
The C.I.A. officer did not work on the communications team that handles calls with foreign leaders, according to the people familiar with his identity. He learned about Mr. Trump’s conduct “in the course of official interagency business,” according to the complaint, which was dotted with footnotes about machinations in Kiev and reinforced with public comments by senior Ukrainian officials.
This explains why Adam Schiff wants no part in having the whistleblower testify. Imagine getting up in front of the US Congress as the whistleblower and saying- I saw it on Twitter. It must be true. That’s enough to impeach the President.
Imagine being Adam Schiff and trying to get re-elected or just living that one down.
In truth, I know next to nothing about DebkaG. The profile suggests a Ukrainian national in Poland because of the links to both the Ukrainian and Polish governments. The source @almostjingo sent it to me for another reason as well. They saw a tweet where DebkaG was asking former Ambassador Maria Yovanovitch what she knew about me.
This same Yovanovitch who is testifying at Donald Trump’s impeachment hearing was just exposed for stalking Americans and American journalists online. She’s concerned about her safety? What was she doing with the information about US citizens?
If DebkaG was tweeting about the phone call during the same timeframe, Yovanovitch is lying if she says she has no knowledge of the source and possibly the whistleblower.
Yovanovitch just testified she knows nothing about anything relevant concerning the Trump-Zelenskiy call. She was taken to task by John Solomon of the Hill for being one of the biggest activist policymaking diplomats in Ukraine.
William Taylor was just exposed for trying to restart the civil war in Ukraine after a pullback agreement was reached and signed by all parties. He is an extreme activist working against US foreign policy.
Pictured below Lugansk Peoples Republic Foreign Minister, Donetsk People’s Republic President Denis Pushilin, Ukraine’s former President Leonid Kuchma sign on troop withdrawal.
Then we have Alexander Vindman who doesn’t know enough about Ukraine to keep his job, but he poses as the US best expert. Vindman’s loyalties support Ukraine and he shows this by trying to change US policy.
I was concerned by the call,” Vindman said, according to his testimony obtained by the Associated Press. “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.”-Vindman
The bottom line is if the Democrats try to go forward with impeachment of any US president based on a whistleblower who got his information off…wait for it….Twitter, the only way they might see the inside of the Oval Office until the 2030s is to take the tour.
This action, if successful will destroy the US Presidency. No crime has been put on the table. It’s innuendo, politics, and we hate Donald Trump! If Congressman Schiff has anything substantial, the time passed for him to produce it. There is nothing.
This is the most disgustingly repugnant use of politics in US history. The idea the Democrats are willing to tear the fabric of the country as Ocasio-Cortez recently put it “for 2020,” violates the oath every Congressman and Congresswoman takes.
The reality is simple. Instead of working to fix the problems the US faces, Democrats, let Donald Trump to lead that charge. Instead of giving reasons to vote for their party, Democrats led a disjointed headhunting party against the Presidency with no rhyme or reason to it. The only explanation has been and is still Trump makes them feel bad.
Instead of fixing the deep state issues that will derail Bernie Sanders (again), Gabbard, or any other moderate, they’ve chosen shoddy narratives devoid of truth that will push the DNC further into militancy.
How does this set up the 2020 election for Donald Trump and any Democratic challenger?
DebkaG ? Any relation to DebkaFile, the Israeli military intelligence outfit? Would the Israelis spy on a US president and try to have him ousted in a coup? Good lord no. The only democracy in the Middle East (TM) and the Most Moral Army in the World (TM) would not stoop so low.
The Zionazis like to play all sides of the goyim, so long as they all obey in the end. One faction appreciates Trump’s servility, but others would happily destroy him because they prefer the DNC Sabbat Goyim, or just to show who is boss.
Riddle me this
Does Israel OWN Trumpf yes or no?
They rent him by the hour.
Trump is rented by the minute!
The whole ZN 5AR system will come tumbling down on them regardless of whether tweedle-dumb or tweedle-dee is used if the economy fails to deliver. Like a bunch of termites in a building in the end the whole structure collapses.
Just look at AU and how many PMs it has had since 2007 (7 in 12 years). Then UK. The writing is on the wall.
Hence the radical tactics being used – but their plans will fail.
The Tweet says DekraG, but you’re spelling it DebkaG.
Have you got inside info to bridge this gap?
The Ukraingate impeachment will go absolutely nowhere, just like the Russiagate witch hunt. In fact the only outcome will be to eliminate Joe Biden, the only main “centrist” (i.e. far right) Dem candidate, from the race. So the real question is what on earth the Dems are trying to achieve by it. I can only list a couple of hypotheses, looking forward to feedback from our Saker community:
A) Bring HRC back in the game. She’s already claiming “people are begging her” to join the race. It won’t be her choice, you see – she has to do it as there’s no other viable “centrist” (Bloomberg isn’t really a contender).
B) Ensure Trump gets re-elected. Perhaps 2020-2023 is when the new GFC will be engineering and they need Trump to take the blame for it.
C) Keep any mildly progressive (Bernie/Warren) debates (e.g. billionaires aren’t exactly good people) drowned out by the “by how much we hate Trump” screams. There seems to be a genuine left-leaning awakening in the US, but it needs to be co-opted/re-directed of course, and most Americans just aren’t sharp enough to see through the corporate media fog.
And these 3 hypotheses aren’t completely mutually exclusive…
I would expect the “new GFC” any day now. They are printing astronomical amounts of US dollars daily just to keep the ” too big to fail” banks afloat. Listen to Jim Willie. He might appear outrageous at first but he does have a history of accurate predictions.
Strangely I find myself rooting for President Trump, regarding the impeachment circus, and against him for almost everything else he does.
“Strangely I find myself rooting for President Trump, regarding the impeachment circus, and against him for almost everything else he does.”
Yep, me too.
Rooting against Schiff et al. in this case means rooting for Trump.
If he would just shut up and let the Dems do the job on themselves.
Yep, sadly most so called progressives are falling for the I hate Trump game again! Humans are sheep.
The USA political dynamic was well laid out in 2004 by George Lakoff.
“DON’T THINK OF AN ELEPHANT!
Know Your Values and Frame the Debate
THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE FOR PROGRESSIVES”
Again in a 2014 edition. One can find pdf copies of the 2004 edition online.
I guess the thing is, one has to have some values to start with.
What are they, post-H.R.Clinton?
More demo-nic than demo-crat, imo.
Btw, she’s just had ‘tea’ with the little Britain royalty ‘B’ team… not sure how that’s going to get her back on the campaign horse? Kiss the baby election trail anyone…?
I strongly recommend this article about Trump. It explains how he is a lot smarter than people give him credit for.
By doing exactly what the Zionists wish – move embassy to Jerusalem and recognize illegal occupation of the Golan – he is doing something that forcibly unites all the leaders of Arab countries against the USA thus speed the US exit from the Middle East.
By gloating about occupying Syrian oilfields, he is exposing the reality of the USA’s “democracy”
Israel is entitled to protect itself from troublemakers re – Golan. But it needs to be careful over Jerusalem because of religious sites. The whole area has been fought over for 5000 yrs and its a difficult balance to manage. There is no reason why Jerusalem shouldn’t be the capital as long as Islamic religious aspects and people are respected. When Saladin took over it after battling the the Crusaders he showed enormous stature and respect to the christians and jews who remained and that should apply again.
Int article there on Trump.
Dear Dick Turnip,
Every country has the right to protect itself against troublemakers, but the seizure of the Golan Heights was not about protection, but rather the opposite. Again, the original scheme for Rothschild’s Israel was drawn up with the specific requirement that Jerusalem was to remain free due to its importance to all the regional religions. I guess somebody didn’t want the Jews ending up with a fate similar to the Christian Armenians back in 1916.
Your comment on Saladin is interesting in demonstrating the stature of the Arabs (Saladin) as both the Jews and the Crusaders slaughtered all opposition when they took the holy city. Also if I remember correctly, the Persians also spared the inhabitants when they apparently took the city.
And I would guess that your comment on ‘protection’ should also thus stand for any other legitimate country such as Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Iraq and possibly even the remnants of Palestine which Allenby ‘liberated’
Jerusalem/al Quds could be the capital for both Israel and Palestine, but the Zionazis explicitly reject that with utter arrogance and hatred. Pity-it’s their death sentence and suicide note, shoved in the Wailing Wall.
What is GFC?
GFC = Global Financial Collapse. As in what happened in 2008, tho a number of people are predicting the next time will be much worse than 11 years ago.
And there will be a next time, as sure as night follows day.
For a start, there’s no money left to bail anyone out. Massive debt levels right thru out the West, especially household debt, and look at the actual situation with the biggest banks like Deutsche, Citigroup, JP Morgan, etc.
Why do you think they’ve been furiously printing so much money?
Financial markets are in a technical position now to have a GFC.
What are the DEMONS trying trying to achieve ? Divert attention overall.
1 – Damage Trump in eyes of unsure voters.
2 – Keep a circus going to enable Hillary not to have to make public appearances and expose her health problems again if she is going to run.
3 – Grasping for straws to let the public they are still in business.
4 – Divert Trump’s time from getting on with his own policy agenda.
5 – Tying up Republican time in the House & Senate from things they would otherwise be doing – re #4.
6 – Trying to give a boost to the approved DEM Presidential hopefuls left.
7 – Hoping something will turn up (a plea for info).
8 – Drowning out (as you said) Bernie & Tulsi & others.
9 – Showing the public they are earning their salary.
Hillary is a failed Dem Pres candidate – the Dems have never ever re-run one of their failed candidates in the past century or so. Only Nixon got a second bite after an 8 year gap. Her health isnt up to it. How many failed ones have ever re-run ? Will she be or want to be remembered as the Don Quixote of the party ?
In 2008 when she fought to win the DNC against Blackie they didnt want her or the baggage – so will they want her again given her failings as Sec of State and 2016 ? No not likely. They only let her have it in 2016 because they knew Trump could beat her and didnt like Bernie and the lack of anyone better.
Currently the Dem field is divided as is the support base, and with Bernie & Tulsi there its a recipe for another train wreck in 2020. Large blocks of DEM support don’t want Hilly-Billys in the WH – that was a main part of the problem in 2016. She also probably knows it, thats why she lingering. And she won’t want to lose twice.
So the DNC may, if they crunch the voter numbers, decide to put in Bernie so he can lose. Or Bernie with Warren as VP. Or vice versa. Neither will win. Warren cant win on her own either. No new late entry candidate can also win – forget Bloombug (the voters dont want Dem Wall St. billionaires), unless a popular dark horse with spectacular policies arises.
The only one who could win against Trump is Tulsi with a good VP offsider and that doesnt mean Bernie.
But the power brokers wont let her have it.
No, as it stands currently it will be another Republican win in 2020 and whether Trump is the candidate remains to be seen – if the GOP est. and Congress fail to support him between now and then the grass roots will destroy them (they risk loss of control of the House & Senate for eons) or cause a split (as you may see in the DEMS) which would mean a 4 way race with maybe Trump & Tulsi re-writing the political landscape.
Bernie will scotch any attempt that Hillary makes to run. He wont do what he did last time and back her – his nod will probably go to Tulsi.
The overall fact is both parties are in phase change mode and if they dont go with the flow for change to remove the corruption of the worst of the swamp creatures they will be stuffed.
Saw a lovely explanation of the Biden family corruption, Dpoey Joe, his brother, both sons etc, that began in 1973, a year after he was first elected, on The Hill. It was following an article in Politico, apparently. The whole family are crooks, but so is the entire Thanatopian ruling elite, with one or two incidental exceptions.
Well Joe does come from the union movement – what can you expect ?
DEBKA is MOSSAD, surely?
DEBKA is a circus, I’m sure our Mulga could write a book about them,
They have been the GOY news source about Israel INTEL for what 20+ years??
The funny thing is that if you want the ‘good stuff’ you have to pay, now would have thought?
“By way of deception, we shall wage war” – motto of the mossad
I was thinking of a mini-series.
DEBKA is from an EU country.
That should tell you lot.
They are probably a pal of Angela or Emmanuel.
Oh! Oh! I think I finally see it. Shifty Schiff et al are clearly ‘sowing discord’ ahead of an election. And by their own admission we all know what that can only mean – they are working For Russia and Putin! Case closed.
While we have this petty clown mess going on, the rest of the world is on fire; literally.
Forests are burning, democratically elected governments are under siege, and cities are being bombed. CO2 is rising faster than ever in the world’s atmosphere because fossil fuels are being burned at rates much faster than forests can ingest. In a relatively short number of years the world’s populaton if not overcome by global heating, will collectively choke on a CO2 laden atmosphere.
I think the true purpose of those impeachment hearings is to put the U.S. political process into a massive holding pattern such that the Democrats do not have to address the world’s real problems as Republicans would not address the world’s problems anyway. There is no real intention to remove Trump from office.
The killer is global dimming. The reduction of global average temperatures due to the reflectivity of the high albedo sulphate air pollution that cloaks so much of the world, was estimated at one or two degrees Celsius, but recent estimates have gone as high as four degrees Celsius. So, if India and China decarbonise and move to renewables rather than fossil fuels, well, our goose is already cooked. Not to forget fracked gas, whose fugitive emissions of methane are proving vastly greater than industry lies, and is another nail knocked in the coffin lid.
Mulga – if dimming should be reducing temperatures by 2 – 4 deg why did you claim in past posts the polar ice cap is melting from climate change from carbon emissions ?
No, its not carbon aerosols but ozone hole solar UV IR radiation thats melting the ice and heating the oceans in irregular places / timeframes. But those holes are slowly repairing and will close by 2050-60 so that problem will fix – in fact on your theory that hole energy will offset the lower temps from carbon.
Long term cycles show an ice age is due – its our burning of carbon that has in fact offset that. The problem is a temporary one from the ozone holes from spray cans – they zapped that in 1985 by fluro bans but its taking a long time to fix. Its the ozone that needs our focus even to the point of seeding the layer with more O3.
(I did some meteorology at university, Mulga, in the early 80s before it became politicized with 1C honours in climatology so I know what the facts are on this. Dr Jansen knew all about the carbon implications and thought it was a good thing, and I follow developments since).
The real wild card danger is a large volcanic input of gases – aka 535AD & 1628BC.
You say “no rhyme or reason to it” but a skeptic might suggest they don’t want the truth about the Deep State (the existence of which was recently confirmed by the ex-head of CIA) revealed by any investigations by people they don’t control (which would mean results they could not control), not just that they dislike TRUMP.
They act like they’ve something to hide (from the citizenry of course) so maybe they do!
But the thing is, as they keep this up, more and more hints of the characteristic and MO of the deep state seep out around the edges, like blood out of a wound with a festering bandage on it.
And if it does indeed go to the Senate, the public will really get a chance to see the mutual mauling of the (midget) titans who run the USA.
I read somewhere (The Hill?) that the Dems have so far brought nothing of substance, yet are winning the campaign–that is, weakening Trump as we head into the 2020 election. I cannot see this, but perhaps my filters are not working. Or are working.
What I see here is a lose-lose for the Dems. They lose if they don’t dig up any genuine dirt–enough to impeach. And they lose if they do manage to impeach and it goes to the Senate, because then the real dirt comes out, and starts leading to the top. So, the Dems are playing a dangerous game as a campaign gambit, as I reckon Pelosi sees.
I think Pelosi is losing her marbles in public and her people are trying to do anything (and everything) to keep the democratic moral boat afloat. These are desperate people in a desperate time throwing a hail mary pass, if they lose that’s ok, b/c they were going to lose anyway by doing nothing and having their corruption brought out in plain view for all to see. If the democratic party folds and the greens take control we might start to see some progress in political reforms.
Agree – the NP creature is almost 80yrs old. Like Hilly.
Most them are trying to re-live the 60s but things have moved on.
I think what will happen is both main parties will split – their support base will fracture soon if they try to remove the Trump ideology or the Demons try to stifle Bernie & Tulsi.
Their USE-BY date has passed.
I think they both have come to the conclusion that their bad behavior(s), will not be being passed on to the next generation of eagerly awaiting offenders. This is a hard thing to admit and discuss w/the youngsters as they want explainations for the seeming quick lack of lasting progress. This is what keeps them up at night.
??? So N & H are fighting to the end knowing all is lost ?
If the Democrats realize that a lot of their own dirt will be exposed in a Senate trial, what odds could we lay that somehow, this never actually gets to the Senate?
The Dems dont care what dirt comes out of what fools they make of themselves as they and their media co-ops will shout any down and exaggerate Trump’s conduct. The std practice today is they know if they tell a lie often enough most people will believe it. The dominant purpose is to keep criticizing Trump on any minor issues even of inuendo to try and remove him in 2020 as they need something to assist their own nominee because in reality there is nothing real to talk him down on.
Will this confected pile of la la land cow manure never end? Adam Schiff is very obviously in need of professional help.
However, the media down here in Australia just love Mr Schiff for some reason. I lost count long ago how many times they’ve had him on various news items.
They love Nancy Pelosi as well. They don’t seem to like Trump very much, at all.
Except when he launches missiles at a foreign country, or threatens others with ‘regime change’.
The media in Australia just want Hillary. After all The previous Foreign Minister Andrew Downer gave the Clinton Foundation $30 million to blow on its self enrichment global strategy. Later The same Andrew Downer set up Papadopolus through his mate Joe Mifsud and ratted on him to the FBI. All to help destroy Trump.
What do expect a globalist media in AU and bunch is leftys which most journo’s are ?
And Downer – the fmr embattled leader of 1994 who couldnt get it together and almost lost his seat in 98 then was relegated to being OS junket man – now the bagman for Londinium. He’s the man gets the instructions to pass on to Morro over double scotches or cups of tea. Another foreign agent just like many in US are.
Doesnt matter what Downer says or does or those giving him orders, Trump and his agenda and his backers will not be unseated and his opponents should realize their time is up and they won’t prevail.
The eponymous Downer liked hanging out with MI6 types in the UK. His shennanigans with Hakluyt a ‘shadowy’ firm created by ‘ex’ MI6 secret quirrels, is entertaining reading. He lies badly about his role in setting up Papadopoulos.
I thought he always was MI6 – AU chapter in APH.
Educated in UK at Radley and NCOT Uni. – talks like one – hardly a local.
Uncle Tungsten: All part of the same black swamp. The media in Aussie are just the dutiful PR arm of the Anglo Zionist Empire. My initial comment about the Oz presstitutes was meant as sarcasm.
Downer The Jellyfish is just a craven apparatchik for the Empire as well; just another chinless wonder doing the bidding of those who actually rule.
He’s also made a couple of TV appearances recently on talking head panel discussions like The Drum.
And don’t they, particularly the ABC and scum like Hamish and Matt Bevan, hate China with utterly deranged ferocity. I have never seen a hate campaign that comes anywhere near it, with total bias, now that Bob Carr has been disappeared. The stench of racism, and ideological hatred, as neo-liberal capitalism proves its wickedness and destructiveness, day after day, and communism, even of the eclectic Chinese type, displays its superiority over and over again, comes right through the radio and TV.
It looks like thyrotoxicosis to me.
Hehe… These clowns are definately made for television. Fortunately for them, nearly everyone on Earth has one these days.
I threw mine out over 30 years go. Regardless of how cynical and expert you are in critical thinking, if you watch TV you are being poisoned.
As a test, avoid all TV for 2 weeks and then switch it on again. If you notice a difference, however subtle, in how it all feels to you then you were, at some level, being poisoned.
I just like watching to see how deep into denial he is, (you know, keeping an eye on your enemy) a quick law of truth in advertising and truth in reporting should straighten him up fairly quickly.
For subjects you know about or known pathological liars like Schiff then you are inoculated as with anything on Russia, Syria, Venezuela etc. that are immediate red flags and suspect in truth.
It’s the little, seemingly innocuous items that we don’t know much about and have no reference point to judge against (until perhaps much later) that are the danger. They can build up and start things leaning in a particular direction without you realising it and sometimes there is even no malice involved, just errors in reporting and shoddy journalism. But if those errors conveniently fit someone’s larger script then there is no ongoing correction of the narrative. There’s the inconspicuous peril.
YES. All this shows the desperate low levels the DEMS have sunk to.
Of course TWITTER should come forward and indentify the poster of that comment in the public interest.
Will Jack Dorsey practice what he preaches ?
People like Schiff dont care about facts or morality because they know they will get payoffs after they leave office and it is why the DEMS under the corrupt Clinton-Obama controlled mindset will fail and destroy the party in the end unless people like Tulsi take over.
AG Barr in his speech to the Federalist Club yesterday noted the extensive amount of obstruction that has gone on since Trump took office with mid level District Court judges appointed by either Obama or Clinton (purporting to have authority to do so) issuing 60 injunctions since Jan 2017 (mostly about illegal immigration matters) when they only issued 2 during the entire 8 years Blackie was there.
Anyone overseas watching everything going on in America over Trump comes to the view all these antics is making the US a laughing stock – like a circus with clowns running there and there. A complete comedy. Id hate to think what Washington, Madison and Jefferson would think of all this.
The fact is there are a lot immature people in the DEM Congress who are not real people.
They think to a achieve and goal they can peddle a line like 2 + 2 = 5 and voters will buy it. You have a bunch of people there are are just 30+yrs old school children whose thinking is on the level of Sesame Street (you can see this in their facial expressions apart from the simple nonsense that comes out of their mouths).
I think someone ought to buy a clown outfit for Adam and present it to him with cameras rolling.
There’s a thought for Alex Jones.
I tutored at the local elementary school some years back. There, I was telling the kiddies that 2+2=22, and they were buying it. They went on to tell their teachers and parents,the old math is all wrong. The new math is much easier. Evil me.
I suppose with these kids being young adults now, the Dems are focusing in on these misguided youngens……
You are on target. The truth is, the current generation many of them have not be educated properly and have been pushing buttons on iphones and PCs etc and being effected by the magnetic/microwave fields from them and would have a clue on many things. That plus all the toxic chemicals in our food & drink the past few decades plus drugs & alcohol has made lot of people stupid – which is what corrupt politicians want.
(There is an alternative number system that would give 2 + 2 = 22 (where second order addition is always base 10) you werent totally wrong.)
Trump Steps in to Defend Biden From North Korean Media Branding Ex-Vice President ‘Rabid Dog’
“Earlier, North Korea’s official KCNA news agency described Biden as a “rabid dog” that will soon pass away and needs to be put down, adding that he was allegedly exhibiting the “final stage of dementia”.
“Mr. Chairman, Joe Biden may be Sleepy and Very Slow, but he is not a rabid dog’,” the US president tweeted. “He is actually somewhat better than that, but I am the only one who can get you where you have to be. You should act quickly, get the deal done. See you soon!”
Ah, how thweet, trump and biden really do love each other…despite the psywar circus performances. :-D
The DPRK is correct about the dementia. He’s a comic figure, these days.
This is just one of the myriad of problems within and encompassing American politics. Rather than offering a candidate that voters would prefer to vote for, they take the slime ball route and put on a circus act for a national distraction. These bufoons are the most morally depraved and mentally deficiant people around. Slick and sleazy. These individuals in all walks of government are supposed to be role models. I am convinced that the only reason that God placed them on Earth is to remind everyone else of how awsome they are by comparison.
