Skip to comments.The three big lies Democrats are pushing in Tuesday’s impeachment hearing
Posted on 11/19/2019 9:16:14 AM PST by ChicagoConservative27
In Tuesday mornings impeachment inquiry hearing, in the questioning of Lt.-Col. Alexander Vindman of the White House National Security Council and Jennifer Williams of Vice President Mike Pences staff, Democrats are pressing three misleading themes.
First, Chairman Adam Schiff and the Democrats counsel, Daniel Goldman, have attempted to frame a dichotomy between President Trump and what they call official US foreign policy. Its a false framework. Official policy is not, as they suggest, made by the so-called policy community (comprised mainly of the NSC, the State Department and government agents from the intelligence community and the armed services). The president makes American foreign policy.
The function of the policy community is to give the president its best advice and the benefit of its considerable knowledge and experience. But in our representative republic, policy is made by the only official who actually answers to the voters whose lives and interests are at stake the president.

THREE big and a wheelbarrow full of little ones. Lies that is.
Schiff has bit into a big bear’s a$$ and done found his self a bad case of lockjaw.
Their biggest fear as Hillary stated on election night is that the truth will come out and they will all hang.
According to Lt.-Col. Alexander Vindman... He makes foreign policy, and the President is supposed to follow his advice.
AG BARR’S SPEECH TO FEDERALIST SOCIETY ON 11/15/19
I’m skeptical until I hear the sound of handcuffs clicking around the wrists of the likes of OBAMA, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Clinton, Rice, Jarrett, Powers, etc...you know their names. And I don’t share some of his ideas on gun control, but it is what it is and he’s WHO we’ve got!
If arrests & trials are NOT forthcoming, I’ll pull this video as we officially have a 2 tier justice system & the now UNTOUCHABLES may have folks like me arrested, jailed...and worse.
The author of the article is actually Andrew McCarthy.
We can all hope for this happy ending.
we’re witnessing the suicide of the D party
its fascinating to watch, albeit the immoral depths they’ve sunk to with all their lies and slanders... are.. disgusting.
Dante’s vision of the eventual fate (in Hell) of liars and deceivers....
“I do not think that there was greater grief
in seeing all Aeginas people sick
(then, when the air was so infected that
all animals, down to the little worm,
collapsed; and afterward, as poets hold
to be the certain truth, those ancient peoples
received their health again through seed of ants)
than I felt when I saw, in that dark valley,
the spirits languishing in scattered heaps.
Some lay upon their bellies, some upon
the shoulders of another spirit, some
crawled on all fours along that squalid road.
We journeyed step by step without a word,
watching the listening to those sick souls,
who had not strength enough to lift themselves. (Inf. XXIX, 58-72)
The biggest lie is being repeated over and over by all the Dems but nobody on the Republican side ever challenged it.
They say that the REASON Trump asked the favor was to help him in the election against Joe Biden. That is false and it is the central issue in the hearing. The inept Republicans have yet to challenge the assertion.
I’m waiting for someone to ask:
“Given the President’s repeated assertion that the Mueller Investigation was corrupt from the get go, that there was a cadre of corrupt individuals who started it, and given that President Trump made repeated promises to get to the bottom of it and make sure that ‘This never happens again to another president’ and given that the President promised repeatedly to ‘Drain the swamp!’, isn’t it possible that the President thought he was rooting out US corruption as part of his duty to ensure that US laws are enforced when he asked the favor rather than pursuing a corrupt, self-serving political agenda?”
Only the Democrat Castro even raised this point as he tried to dismiss the 2016 anti-Trump coup as a debunked conspiracy theory. Castro was actually arguing in defense of the President but nobody noticed. Even if the notion of Ukraine’s involvement in opposing Trump back in 2016 is a debunked conspiracy theory, President Trump believed it so his wanting to have an investigation was intended to be in the national interest and not an impeachable offense.
I’m so frustrated by the failures of the good guys to get a clue.
I wonder when this hurricane of farce will end. By now, everyone is at the gag point
I’m curious when that puffy little puke Vindman last took the Army’s PT test.
get ready to pull
I had made the offhand comment that he didn’t even look like a soldier...maybe JAG, maybe MED but Combat Leader of Men???? doesn’t have that ‘look’.
OTOH, let me ‘criticize’ myself......
Audie Murphy didn’t look like a soldier either <: : <: <”:
Author should be listed as Andrew McCarthy.
Besides the lies, there is the idiocy. Listening to these people claim that Ambassadress Masha had direct knowledge because she herself experienced being fired and put on a plane because of Trump’s conspiracy to get information about Biden set my teeth on edge. I’d rather drive 2,000 miles with a car full of screaming quarrelsome children then tune in to this crap. These are journalists and legislators? Either they are morons, or think that we are. Possibly both.
Chris Plante ‘told’ a good one this AM
We had an aircraft that ‘replaced’ the U2 called the Blackbird...RS 71
Word of it ‘leaked’ out and the speculation was bad (Cold War yaknow) and LBJ was going to defuse the situation...
LBJ started off with leading up to the ‘brand new’ aircraft we had and all its glories BUT kept referring to it as SR71.
After mentioning SR71 several times, the speech ended and an aide came up to him and pointed out that the plane was actually an RS71, NOT SR71...
LBJ looked him in the eye and said. NO MORE, it is now the SR7.
Talk about ‘making policy’.....
That is supposedly a TRUE story, and ‘knowing’ of LBJ and his obnoxious personality (or lack of) I can imagine it happening....
And listen to LYING-SACK-OF-SCHIFF'S closing statement after the hearing.. The very last few sentences. He makes it CLEAR that President Trump is NOT to establish or steer U.S. foreign policy.
Official foreign policy?
Didnt President Obama turn his back on defending NATO allies as Russia grew bolder?
