That should pretty much bring you up to speed.[QUOTE So, how the impeachment going guys ? There must be something to talk about.
Top...are you including the actual hearings in your list of "ANYTHING"? Or just reports from the media?if you listen to ANYTHING else the actual people involved (IE: first person accounts) are giving a play by play of an extortion racket. tRUMP is front and center.
They know Trump did it; basically the white house doesn't even deny that Trump was demanding an investigation of Biden for military aid.It's amazing that the more the concrete evidence comes out about Spanky et al, the more his cultists go into black-is-white mode.
In a few years, they'll be bombing government buildings and assassinating politicians. Because when White doesn't get its way, it turns to violence.It's amazing that the more the concrete evidence comes out about Spanky et al, the more his cultists go into black-is-white mode.
You do know they took his (LtCol V) deposition last week and he testifies Wednesday. He definitely was on the call and questioned it twice to the NSC legal office.Top...are you including the actual hearings in your list of "ANYTHING"? Or just reports from the media?
I ask because I've only watched a very few tidbits here and there (the live feed...not talking head interpretations) and I don't recall anybody being a "first person" witness (i.e., somebody who was actually in the room/on the call in question).
So what person has testified that is an actual first person witness?
Geez...I just asked a simple question...and you went off the rails a bit. Oh well...You do know they took his (LtCol V) deposition last week and he testifies Wednesday. He definitely was on the call and questioned it twice to the NSC legal office.
By your interpretation, THE Ambassador to Ukraine couldn't possibly be a first person account dealing in what was happening daily between the Ukraine govt., the State Dept., & the three stooges? Clue #1: the phone call was not 'perfect'. It was a shakedown and this has already been proven time and again. If it was 'perfect', why did the tRUMP admin try and hide the read out of the phone call? The phone call was over 10 minutes long but the transcript barely covers 2.5 minutes. Why was Yovanovitch fired?
Kent, Taylor, Yovanovitch, OMB personnel, State dept. personnel are all fact witnesses. Most of them have over 30 years of govt service through Republican & Democratic administrations. Did Ambassador Stevens testify during the Benghazi hearings? He would be the only person on the 'call' or did we use fact witnesses to determine the timeline of what transpired on that night? HRC testified during Benghazi. In fact almost every single person served with a subpoena testified. Has Pompeo (or any tRUMP appointee) testified? NO! Why?
Like I said up post, none of you guys would have sat idly by if this was the Obama administration doing this or ANYTHING at all to do with HRC.
Considering that the republican party is destroying the protections it thinks white people will need to survive as a minority, they should be afraid. We all should be because when the president is above the law, all politicians will become above the law.<Quoted from The Atlantic> But the president’s defeat would likely only deepen the despair that fueled his rise, confirming his supporters’ fear that the demographic tide has turned against them. That fear is the single greatest threat facing American democracy, the force that is already battering down precedents, leveling norms, and demolishing guardrails. When a group that has traditionally exercised power comes to believe that its eclipse is inevitable, and that the destruction of all it holds dear will follow, it will fight to preserve what it has—whatever the cost.
I didn't go off the rails. At least it was not my intention.Geez...I just asked a simple question...and you went off the rails a bit. Oh well...
Kevin Drum, neoliberal and the one blogger I follow, wrote pretty much the same, the GOP slide due to demographics....The full article goes into other facets, and compares our situation to the ACW's slave power reaction to impending electoral defeat. Quoted below are some of the beginning highlights.
How America Ends A tectonic demographic shift is under way. Can the country hold together?

It explains why Mitch McConnell doesn’t care much about legislation of any kind but grimly continues to confirm federal judges: it’s his only bulwark against a future in which Republicans lose power completely for a decade or two. It explains why a formerly mainstream party not only voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 primaries, but voted overwhelmingly for him even though they had a perfectly normal field of competitors to choose from. It explains a multi-decade effort at voter suppression that has consumed the party even though it’s unlikely to put off the inevitable by more than a year or three.
Nonetheless, the Democratic party is going to need more than just demographics to be a credible political party. Parties divided into tribes aren't conducive to good government. I've always been a Democratic for the reason that the party at least will pursue some modicum of balance against powerful individuals and corporations.
