WSJ NEWS EXCLUSIVE
Official to Testify Pompeo Blocked Show of Support for Ex-Ambassador
A senior official was set to tell House impeachment investigators that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other top officials stymied a show of solidarity for the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, according to a person familiar with his closed-door testimony.

Its the Lady Ambassador, I believe.

Shifty Schiff is ruunning low on ammo.

Greatest day of my life was to trust @realDonaldTrump and his promises to the black community. Four years ago I made this declaration with 100% confidence and @POTUS has not let one fall to the ground for the black community. #PromisesMadePromisesKept #KAG #MAGA @PastorDScott pic.twitter.com/g2WcusAVLo

In the 80s, there were some holdovers like robert white, who wanted the guerillas to win, they had the support of reporters like ray bonner, who was a lefty activist with a byline,, he went into exile at the center for international policy, thats where kerry drew his staff from, including jonathan winer for his inquisition

The Infamous Ignatz

This is almost comical, even if sad. There is a large uncontrolled fire near Geyserville and Healdsburg in the Sonoma Wine Country. PG&E shut down power in the residential lines to prevent a fire hours before the Kincade fire stated.
Now it looks like it was PG&E equipment that started it anyway as one of their main transmission lines had a fault right where the fire started and right before it was first reported.
They can't shut down the main transmission lines without shutting power off to millions in urban areas they don't intend to shut down. The same happened in the Camp Fire that destroyed Paradise last year.
The horns of a dilemma ground extra sharp, I tell ya.

MissMarple2

Jack,

As far as I am concerned those people wanting to make a public show of solidarity for the former ambassador should be fired or at least put on administrative leave.

Also, I think he has some questionable ties.

MissMarple2

henry,

There is a note at the bottom of the story that says the headline and first sentence were changed to more accurately reflect the intent of Page's lawsuit.

Maybe that is why the tweet was pulled.

MissMarple2

When do we turn the clocks back for Daylight Savings Time?

Indiana never used to turn the clocks back, and I liked it just fine. In the summer we were on Ohio time and in the winter Chicago time.

This is the only thing I didn't like about Mitch Daniels' term as governor. He felt we should do what the rest of the states did in order to stop confusion and save money.

I hate it. Also, I don't know when we do it.

Buckeye,

To give the Horde credit, many are as disgusted by the subject as we are.

Well, we let the Badgers score at the beginning of the 3rd qtr after a muffed/blocked punt gave them good field position.

Nonetheless, we have scored twice since.

BREAKING: PG&E power shut off now set to impact 940,000 customers in Northern California amid increased wildfire risk

KevlarKid

State Department contractors receive $2,100- $4,000 per refugee for initial placements etc.

Here's the 2019 report on refugee admissions from POTUS to congress--- compliance with Immigration and Nationality Act

https://www.state.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Proposed-Refugee-Admissions-for-Fiscal-Year-2019.pdf

State Departments spends $548 million annually on "resettlement".

Health and Human Services (feds) spends $1.4 billion on housing for illegal alien children.

Estimated cost of "resettling refugees" over 5 years: $8.8 billion (cash assistance, housing, health care, the Moon).

All stats cited in NOTES section of Malkin's OPEN BORDERS, Inc.

Methinks Trump has put quite a twist on this insidious and well-organized spigot, manned by brokers of "in country" deals providing aid (free money)to "governments" (cash never seems to reach the front lines), funding the associated endless humanitarian crises driving emigration and civil war. chalk up another $8 billion in corruption. Much of the cash is laundered through SOROS' and other billionaire non-profits (open society and tides foundation come to mind) which filters the cash into US resettlement efforts by still even more shady church and SJW non-profits and legal service crooks.

Enter Bill Taylor and Masha What's Her Name (Ukraine's bag lady). no wonder these "career diplomats" don't want the likes of Rudy "the Loose Cannon" poking around their fiefdoms.

i am of the opinion that these dots are worth connecting when it comes to the entire Ukraine fiasco and the nonsensical demonization of "quid pro quo" in the impeachment farce.

Tiger has a 2 point lead in the ZOZO Championship. Still 36 holes due to weather issues. Next round starts at 7;00Pm tonite.

Jane

Why not amend the Constitution so that any president who is impeached and acquitted is permitted to serve a third term? That would allow him to make up for the time lost advancing the agenda that voters elected him to enact. It would preserve impeachment for genuine offenses but discourage its use for disputed ones and for mere politics. Absent such an amendment, and in an era when government is divided more often than not, impeachment seems likely to become an increasingly common means of opposition.

MissMarple2

Jim,

Not her father, and she is married to some Jordanian who served in the US Marines. I went and looked her up, since those types of relationships are too common in DC, particularly on the Left.

henry

Jane, a third term if a failed impeachment? The Dems would game it and “impeach” Obama just to get him a third term. No rational law can save us from those with no morality.

MissMarple2

Kev,

Methinks you are right. Melinda first clued me in to how Trump has been cutting the spigots for leftist funding, and I have paid more attention to the activities of Mnuchin and various other cabinet secretaries.

It's quite fascinating, and the press still hasn't figured it out, or if they have, they haven't figured out how to write or broadcast about it without cluing the public in on what's been going on.

MissMarple2

henry, Jane,

I agree with henry. In addition, it would encourage, for example, 2024 presidential hopefuls on our side, for example, to vote FOR impeachment so that Trump's impeachment would be successful.

GUS

Perhaps if CLAPPER and BRENNAN swung from a rope, along with OBAMA of course, then we'd have a deterrant to the DEEP STATE COUP.

MM-the problem with darvocet was that the narcotic was too mild for the typical patient to get pain relief. (As has been discussed this is how they all work for me), but patients were getting liver damage because they were not sufficiently aware of the toxicity of the acetomenophen at doses of the opiod to give them pain relief.

The oxycodone and hydrocodone prescriptions were on the market at the same time, but gave much more narcotic relief for pain with the same amounts of tylenol for each pill. IIRC darvon got pulled about 2005 or so.

You can also have physical symptoms from discontinuing narcotics without any psychological addiction. I learned that when I quit taking oxycontin cold turkey after I told a doctor it was not working even though they had me on 2 80's per day plus ir for breakthrough pain. I still had a script for another month when I stopped it.

I felt very bad for several days which just made me more determined.

What could go wrong with this?

Bishops Ask Pope Francis to Allow Married Priests in the Amazon
A gathering of bishops at the Vatican recommended that Pope Francis loosen the celibacy requirement for priests in South America’s Amazon region—a step that would lead to the Roman Catholic Church ordaining married men on a routine basis for the first time in 1,000 years.

MissMarple2

rse,

Thanks for the information. I never was prescribed Darvon and I think the only real painkiller I was prescribed in that time frame was Tylenol with Codeine for an infected wisdom tooth which was removed.

I didn't know that Fox Butterfield still writes for the NYT:

The death toll has become a grim reminder of the dangers of biking on New York City’s congested streets. It has continued to rise even as city officials have sought to make streets safer by redesigning intersections and building more protected bike lanes to separate cyclists from vehicles. Twenty-five cyclists have been killed so far this year, which is 15 more than in all of 2018, and the highest toll in two decades.

Who could have guessed that encouraging more bicyclists to ride in the streets would result in more getting killed?

But of course, that won't stop the social engineers:

Now New York is going even further to re-engineer streets that were once dominated by cars and for the first time adjusting traffic signals to give bikes the priority for green lights.

Cyclists who travel, on average, 10 to 15 miles per hour on streets where the speed limit is typically up to 25 m.p.h. will catch a wave of green lights and glide through intersections without having to stop.

In other words, auto traffic will come to a standstill. Wonderful.

"I wonder if Nunes will report on Paul Ryan giving him no support?"

As I recall, didn't Ryan refuse to let Nunes and others issue subpoenas? I don't see Nunes getting the not-who-we-are vapors, when it comes to setting the record straight, so I'd be surprised if he didn't cover that kind of obstruction.

Captain Hate

JMH,

My recollection is that he didn't support Nunes at all when the donks were demanding he recuse himself, letting there be a food fight instead of investigating. Contrast that to how the current Speaker protects Schiff.

Jack is Back!

If I understand Nunes, he has not forgot what he started that got interrupted by the Dems winning back the House. He is not someone to say, "oh well, I gave it my best shot". Shifty Schiff should really worry about a new Republican House and Nunes back as the Intel chairman. This will not end the way Pencilneck thinks it will.

The Left seems to think that replying to Nunes' tweets by posting pictures of cows, real and cartoon, is going to somehow make him back down.

They simply do not get why they wound up with President Donald J. Trump, and why they are going to get him for another 4 years, along with hopefully a GOP House.

jimmyk

Maybe I missed it, but was there discussion of this Obama-appointed judge's ruling about Mueller's grand jury material? I don't think Outhouse even had a thread on it. Is it bogus and likely to get overturned? It's hard to see the circus in the House as a legit impeachment inquiry, but, on the other hand, there don't seem to be any actual rules, just precedent.

Jack is Back!
