Breaking: President Trump asked Ukraine's president to look into Joe Biden's son, didn't make an explicit link to U.S. aid, according to a transcript based off "notes and recollections" of officials on.wsj.com/2n5dzmX

Are we certain Trump isn't orchestrating all this via 4D chess, cuz it's hard to figure a group of people voluntarily acting more contrary to their own interests than the Dem gang that couldn't shoot straight.
They don't even present the pretense of having an actual legislative agenda and their policies seem to consist solely of socialism, stealing OPM, blacks are helpless, the 3rd world needs to live in America, boys are girls and OMB.
Who among them thinks those appeal to anyone other than their base of Marcusian Marxists?

The other guests at George Will's cocktail parties. Plus possibly Pauline Kael.

MissMarple2

Ignatz,

It's hard to imagine that the dems are experienced politicians. It's like they have all gone insane.

It was interesting to me that the Ukrainian president said they took ideas from Trump's campaign. I believe several other new leaders did as well, including the new Brazilian president. Modi seems to have taken a lot of ideas from Trump as well.

In explanatory note accompanying the Pope’s message, the Congregation said that the May 14 global pact initiative seeks to involve “international organizations” and the “great ones of the earth” in helping to “heal the fracture between man and the Absolute” and the separation between “reality and the transcendent.”

It also aims to heal the “horizontal fracture” between men of difficult cultures, religions and backgrounds. And it intends to heal the “fracture between man, society, nature and the environment” in the face of an “urgent need” to create an “ecological citizenship” based on sustainability and an “austere responsibility.”

“The objectives set for the next few decades aim to set up training models that take into account a constantly increasing population, diminishing resources and the fact that climate change places everyone before a serious responsibility: that of developing our planet in a sustainable way, with an eye to the needs of future generations,” the Congregation said.

“The choice of education as a ground on which to make a global pact is a priority topic in the horizon of current and future scenarios,” it added.

Conferences and events will be held throughout the coming year to prepare for the May 14 signing of the “Global Pact” on education.

Another nice day on the Island. Buckeyette says the water is about perfect temperature.

MissMarple2

How much money is floating around in bribes and payoffs, siphoned out of our governemnt's budget, siphoned out of corporate funds, pocketed in NGO coffers, etc?

The Clinton Foundation alone accounts for a huge amount of money which isn't used for much of anything except enriching the Clintons.

How much wasteful stuff is done in obscure government departments which no one ever investigates because they are liberal strongholds?

It seems to me that Hunter Biden being paid $50,000 per month, not counting the money that he "managed" and whatever he got from China plus that big diamond is a big sign that there is a whole lot of money floating around that we don't know about.

I don't think this entire thing is going to draw more people to the democrats.

What is a window regulator? Please advise, Ignatz, when you return.

henry

California regulates everything.

MissMarple2

The President of Ukraine gave permission for the transcript to be released through Secretary Pompeo.

And personally, I think he is glad to have his opinion of Merkel and Macron broadcast, as they have not helped as they said they would. Per usual.

What the heck is Maguire smoking?!? You think that THIS is "trash talking" ?!?

I did talk to Angela Merkel and I did meet with her. I also met and talked with Macron and I told them that they are not doing quite as much as they need to be doing on the issues with the sanctions. They are not enforcing the sanctions. They are not working as much as they should work for Ukraine. It turns out that even though logically, the European Union should be our biggest partner but technically the United States is a much bigger partner than the European Union and- I'm very grateful to you for that because the United States is doing quite a lot for Ukraine. Much more than the European Union especially when we are talking about sanctions against the Russian Federation.
It sounds like perfectly polite and diplomatic language. Oh, wow, saying "they are not doing quite as much as they need to be doing" is fighting words now? Sure the Europeans are wusses, but nobody is that wimpy!

Narciso79

So bezos assured us yesterday omb had frozen the aid thats not how any of this works.

Aha, behind the paywall it was Schiff that asked if it was a campaign violation.

Rudy Giuliani
@RudyGiuliani

The biggest surprise today will be that President Trump had a constitutional duty, under the Take Care Clause of the Constitution, to make certain that the laws regarding serious corruption against a former VP of the United States were properly executed.

Had Obama understood this clause under the Constitution, this pay-for-play scheme, might have been stopped at any early stage. It’s not a single act, as you will see, it’s a pattern of abuse of public office.

What Buckeye said.
My dad, who was the best mechanic I ever knew, had the nickname Mr Hammer, not because he was destructive but because he knew when to apply judicious force and when not to. He always advised me to apply a little before disassembly.
After giving the door panel a judicious whack with my prybar before gutting the door, the window rose sublimely from the Stygian depths and seated itself in its proper place on my command.
How long that will last I don't know but I really didn't want to fight with it today and it was stuck in the down position with rain forecast this weekend.

What a fun day! Next up the link between the whistleblower and a democrat candidate. I'm betting on Kamilla.

Biden is done. If we are lucky Obama will be done too, but I wouldn't put a nickel on that.

The dems are a ship of fools and they are sinking.

jimmyk

We have to remember how utterly ignorant people on the left are. I was chatting with a tennis pal this morning, nice guy, educated, intelligent. He said, "What do you think about this impeachment?" I didn't want to get into it with him, but I said, "We'll see what the transcript says." Then I said, "But Biden has a problem, because he's on video saying he got the prosecutor fired." And this guy said, "Really??" He had no idea. This is what happens if you just watch CNN and MSNBC, or read the NYT.

MissMarple2

Mark Meadows
@RepMarkMeadows

Seeing some political conflation about two sections of the report:

The "favor" section of the call is referencing "crowdstrike," or an investigation into election interference. This is NOT the same thing as the Biden section.

Conflating the two is misleading and irresponsible.

MissMarple2

Having read the replies to Meadows' tweet, the dems seem to think that this is Trump talking like a Mafia boss. I guess it's the Queens accent again.

jimmyk

LOL, this is Schiff's take on the transcript:

The transcript of the call reads like a classic mob shakedown:

– We do a lot for Ukraine
– There’s not much reciprocity
– I have a favor to ask
– Investigate my opponent
– My people will be in touch

Nice country you got there.

It would be a shame if something happened to her.

Now do the transcript of Biden's comments at that Foreign Policy forum.

Yesterday's comments about Pelosi's ploy by Kevin McCarthy were pretty weak. Heard them and then immediately after, heard Old Yeller, who made the same points with much more clarity. Why can't the GOP have some articulate spokesmen?

Off topic...

anyone watch the NCIS premiere last night?

Good to see Ziva back, I guess the series, with all of the personnel changes, was not doing as well.

But, Ziva looks a bit, what is the correct word... hmmm, maybe I should just say she's not as fit as she used to be. She even alludes to it saying to Gibbs (paraphrase):
I'm not who I was Gibbs, and you are not who you were either..."

I gotta say, in what was an otherwise uninspiring script, the line where Ziva tells Gibbs that he never came looking for her, where she suggests she thought of him as her father and that he had abandoned her after the bombing; that line was one of the heaviest guilt trips I've heard on the small screen. wow. ...and Ziva is supposed to be Jewish, not Catholic. HAHAHAHAHA.
