Can you believe that now, loonies in the impeachment circus, actually are using that mischievousness as proof Trump asked for foreign interference–that he will do it in 2020–therefore "we have to rush."
It all reminds me of when Rush was explaining why the left can never match him on TV. He said "they don’t realize I am an entertainer and they are the entertainment."
Ordinarily, the above silliness would be entertaining. Maybe not this time.

All day in today’s hearings, you heard the mantra repeated that Trump committed the most heinous crime in history that no other president ever did. He asked for a personal favor against a political opponent.
READ THE TRANSCRIPT!
The President: "I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike... I guess you have one of your wealthy people... The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you're surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it."
Trump says "do us," not "do me" a favor. No mention of Biden.
The Bidens only come up near the end when Trump said:
The other thing, There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me.
Again, Trump does not say I want to know. He says "a lot of people" want to find out.
And this is what they say they are hanging the whole scam on? They want to take away mine and 63 million others’ votes, meanwhile tearing the country apart.

I watched the whole impeachment Inquisition. Many of you, I am sure, had better things to do.
None of the media gave a clear account, including Fox. Playing off the post above, here is the real story:
Ambassador Sondland was the only witness who had first hand knowledge. The majority of the witnesses admitted having only second hand information including some with only third and fourth hand. Where did they get their information? From Sondland!
AND SOUNDLAND IS CONFESSING HE MADE IT ALL UP TO SATISFY HIS NEED FOR AN EXPLANATION!!!
And now you know the truth!

We have a problem. The side bar Comment section has run out of space. I really like that sidebar so I want to fix it. Tampering with the layout is tricky. Right now it seems best to deleteold to make room for the latest. Stand by and hope I don’t blow it up.

During Impeachment We Are Learning That the House Have Made Themselves Minor League and the Senate, Major
When I was training to be an expert witness as a psychologist, the lecturer was one of the most famous experts in the country. He taught us how he did it.
He said, "Always remember that the jury is made up of caring people who want to do the right thing. Your job as the expert is to make it possible for each to go away feeling good about the decision he or she made."
So I am thinking the same thing applies to the Senators who may be called on to do the right thing. During the hearings I ask myself what Senators heard that day that will allow each to feel good about his or her final decision.
Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.
Then Commissar Shifty Schiff said Trump was intimidating a witness. What an idiot.

After everything was hearsay testimony yesterday, did you hear the doofus democrat (oxymoron) say hearsay is better than the real thing?
Did you ever play the game where people line up. Then something is said in a low voice to the first person who passes it on to the next. What the last person repeated was often hilarious because it was so different from the original. That is what happens to hearsay.

When I was training to be an expert psychological witness, I was taught to give the facts only. Avoid appearing you are pimping for the people who are paying you.
Both of the ambassador witnesses, opened by claiming they were nonpartisan, LOL.
It became quickly obvious they were mad at Trump. So I watched them when asked about anything that supported Trump. They squirmed. They obfuscated, rambled, gave non verbal signals like covering their mouths etc. They could not give facts. They had none–only hearsay and third and fourth party information. But that did not stop them.
The second life experience was while serving in the Peace Corps. Many of us became so in love countries in which we served that we allowed no criticism. The two ambassadors revealed they had so identified with Ukraine, they become enraged at Trump for holding up aid. They were definitely out to wreak revenge.

Vent pages are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc, which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name? Just feel like spouting off? Do you want to try to put your Trump Derangement Syndrome into words? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it.

Taylor said that Tim Morrison told him that Sondland told Morrison that the President told Sondland that the President told Zelensky. Sondland was his major source and Sondland had told Taylor he was wrong on quid pro quo. And by now you readers know that Sondland just said he omy PRESUMED what the president meant.
"Give me a break. says Congressman Zeldon. On the process and the substance, this whole thing has been a joke" Zeldon
Should be a great show next week
But with Trump’s help and coat tails, Bevin ony lost by 5,333 votes out of more than 1.4 million counted, or a margin of only 0.4 %.
Meanwhile, Kentucky Republicans won five of the other six statewide offices in Tuesday night's election, including an up and coming Black attorney general. (By the way I had to go to the search engine Yippy for this info. Google just wanted to toot the horn regarding the .04% win by Dems. Google is bad.)
