When does Republican partisanship turn into treason? We’re about to find out

Mod: The big day could very well have arrived. Nobody should be surprised.

When does Republican partisanship turn into treason? We’re about to find out (Raw Story link): It bears repeating. Donald Trump was not only press-ganging Volodymyr Zelensky in an illegal scheme for partisan gain. He was rewriting the history of 2016 in order to wound enemies (Democrats) and help friends (Vladimir Putin)—as well as to give Kremlin operatives room to strike again. It is in no way overstating it to say the president of the United States is the head of an international conspiracy to defraud the American people.

It has remained to be seen how far the Republican Party is willing to go in defense of Trump’s conspiracy. Senate Republicans quickly conceded that Russia sabotaged Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, but stopped short of saying the president benefited (because admitting that would be admitting Trump is an illegitimate president.)

But now, as the impeachment process enters a new and dangerous phase, we are seeing new GOP behavior (though we have witnessed plenty of hints). David Drucker, a superlative reporter, wrote today that Republicans decided the best way to defend the president is to embrace “the claim of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election.”

Let’s be clear. There was no Ukrainian interference. That’s according to the special counsel’s report, which cited one and a half dozen national security agencies. That’s according to the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report. That’s according to every career official in the State Department who testified under oath last month. The idea that Ukraine, not Russia, attacked the US originated in the Kremlin. The idea that the Democrats, not Trump’s campaign staffers, conspired with foreign operatives is more than “conspiracy theory.” It is a fascist ploy to turn lies into truth. This is why I said recently Trump’s crime is so much worse than abuse of power. It’s treason.

And the Republicans, like lemmings, are heading for a cliff.

Mod: Trump is the laughing stock of the world.

Video link here.
World Leaders Appear to Mock Trump in Candid Video (The Daily Beast link): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is shown apparently joking with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron about President Trump’s long press conferences at a Buckingham Palace reception Tuesday. In video footage posted by the CBC, Trudeau is heard seemingly referring to Trump’s news conferences earlier that day. “Is that why you were late?” Johnson asks the small group, including Macron and Trudeau. “He was late because he takes a 40 minute press conference off the top,” Trudeau says, before the group’s conversation is drowned out by other noises in the room. “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor,” Trudeau says later on in the clip. World leaders were at the London palace for the NATO summit, and Trump met with both Trudeau and Macron on Tuesday before reporters.

  7. Senate leaders remain immune to America's latest humiliation and deaf to impeachment charges. They intend to block impeachment. We can count on our two California Senators, Harris & Feinstein, to vote for impeachment . Meanwhile, the stock market tumbles and we may see the fed implement a modified form of QE .

  8. When your nothing but a pathetic clown squatting in the White House, no one likes a ignorant fool so say the leaders of the other countries of the free world. Now those leaders also mock him as being a complete LOSER, along with being a child with severe mental disorders. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-calls-trudeau-two-faced-after-hot-mic-catches-nato-n1095351

  10. So now we have a N Korean nut case parading around to ward off hunger and death along with other economic sanctions being imposed on N. Korea. The subjects (aka citizens) of N Korean are brainwashed into believing the little short dude is a God and a big time leader? Could have sworn they were talking about (djt) soon to be impeached. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/kim-jong-un-is-back-on-his-white-horse-as-north-korea-flags-a-big-decision/ar-BBXJ723

    3. Agree that the north Koreans are being brainwashed by a totalitarian state. Why are so many Americans living in a democracy being brainwashed by the government, corporate, mass media complex?

  11. "The big day could have very well arrived"! Once again the Liberal Democrats will embarrass themselves with their constant stupidity, but these individuals have no shame, don't care about wasting tax dollars on frivolous things such as the fake impeachment assertions from all no Trumpers. These people are the real reason Washington D.C. is broken and why swamp rats have multiplied in numbers.
    Time to clean out the swamp, reduce civil servants working in government, reduce lobbyists, end Hillary Clinton's pay for play and expose all of them for the sake of legal actions for the crimes they have committed against this country.

  12. Exposure of Elite Leaders of the World takes place during their hor d'oeuvres and cocktails hour with a hot mike picking up their words.
    Rushing in to get their free finger foods and liquor paid for by all of us, these politicians awkwardly joke that President Trump is late in participating with rubbing shoulders with them, instead he choses to address his citizens back home with a press conference.
    Imagine President Trump intentionally informing his citizens of current news and updates rather than get his water with lemon and hob nob with Elites.

  13. Treason and Bribery called on Trump by Prof. Karlan this morning in Impeachment Hearing hearing and publicly
    broadcast on television and radio. No excuse for citizens remaining uninformed. Disorderly interruptions by Republicans aimed to stop parliamentary order & defend Trump's Monarchy.

  14. Worth watching the hearings then, did you say "Proff." George Karlen?
    His satire on "STUFF" is one of the greatest comedy moments ever.

    "Every realize how stupid people are, then realize that the rest of them are stupider than that" comparing Republicans to Democrats no doubth.

  16. There seems to be a lot of Bull building up from those Communist-Republicans / traitors to America, once again. Such filth that comes from Putin's stooges in 2019.

  17. Giuliani refuses to give testimony to the House Impeachment Hearing. That is Obstruction. Yet he remains evasively out of the country, interviewing Ukrainian official(s) for an Impeachment defense. How does he intend to submit evidence...electronically ? and without his physical presence ???. Unacceptable. Serious charges of Obstruction remain as grounds for Impeachment. When administrative officials refuse to appear, in hiding they lose all credibility . Muller's Report details specific obstruction charges which we have yet to hear about. The public is waiting .
