House Impeachment will hurt the Democrats

Dr. Frieda Birnbaum agrees with Jim McKinney when he says that the impeachment actions will hurt the Democrats. He doesn’t think that the Senate will find anything negative and she comes strictly from a psychological standpoint. What do you think?

    This impeachment farce made no sense at the beginning and makes no sense now. To attempt to impeach a President based on such flimsy speculation and hearsay by clearly biased non-witnesses is a joke.

      Sure it makes a lot of sense for the Democrats, Nigel! But I really think that it will quickly bite them in the rear!

    I am waiting for that parade of Cabinet And White House staff to testify and set the record straight.

    The problem with any hearing is that the Rules of Evidence don’t apply unless agreed upon and it results in the truth being distorted depending on who is the majority party.
    Criminal trials are never run under those conditions as the truth is easily distorted. Thus Congressional hearings are by their nature misleading. (Legislators often find the truth shortens their careers).

    Dr. Birnbaum is clearly not an economist.
    We are approaching the end of an economic cycle, Whether it can be extended beyond the next election is a great problem for Trump.
    He has done well in extending it so far, but there are not many options left.
    When the economy turns down, the President will be blamed by the media.

    It is usually the state of the economy that is the biggest factor in the minds of the electorate that swings the vote for the small percentage who do not always vote the same way.
    The power of the press is extremely strong in altering the minds of semi-aware members of the general public. Note in a recent poll, the majority of the general public could not name the Vice President. Such people are only semi-aware or even disinterested in what is actually happening in D.C..

      I never brought her on the program because I thought that she was an economist. I enjoy talking with her because of her insights into the minds of the electorate. I personally am very interested in this because of the times and because i simply don’t understand how some people can come to the conclusions that they do.

    Did Pelosi violated the Logan Act in her statement that the U.S. still agree with the Paris climate accords, even when Trump signed an Executive Order to withdraw from that treaty/agreement.

    Adam Schiff apparently got the phone records for Guiliani, and John Solomon, and Nunes, apparently without a court order.

    How id that possible ?

      That is so crazy as are many if not most of the topics that are brought up on a daily basis. We will cover this in today’s Daily Editorial which we will record at 2:30 after I get Kathy back from Dialysis.

    Trump’s True Betrayal: A Pattern of Soliciting Foreign Interference in US Elections

      AJ, have you actually read the transcript of Trump’s phone calls to Ukraine ?

      You posted an article which is not actually true; but rather a stretched opinion.
      If it were close to being true, it would be possible to quote an exact phrase or sentence out of the transcript. Would it not?
      Have you EVER asked yourself, why not a single sentence out of the transcript has ever been quoted by the left-wing media as being the “smoking gun” ?

      I give you the asnswer. it is because it arises from the blurring of the fine line between confirming corruption, rampant in Ukraine prior to President Zelensky, had been minimized, and exposing the blatant actual misdeeds of Joe Biden has been obscured by the Democrats.
      The ACTUAL deeds of Joe Biden have been projected on Trump.
      It was Biden that DEMANDED a quid pro quo.
      It was Trump that actually transmitted aid to Ukraine WITHOUT any quid pro quo,
      after he had ensured the aid would not disappear down the drain-hole of corruption.
      It was Joe Biden’s drug-addict inexperienced son who was put on the board of Burisma, not Trump’s.
      In my opinion it is Biden that should be investigated for corruption, not Trump.

        Hunter Biden certainly does not fall into the category of a stellar middle aged business man or even human being for that matter.

        I am looking forward to seeing just how “sharp” the Senate Republicans really are. Not being even close to having the level of expertise that Jim Mc does, all I can do is scream out: “How did Shiff and the others get so far?

    Meanwhile, completely ignored by the media, is real illegal action by Hillary.
    E.g. actual indictments.
    Two Lebanese-American businessmen have been indicted for their role in a scheme to funnel $3.5 million in illegal campaign contributions to political campaigns in 2016.
    George Nader, who was a key witness in the investigation by Robert Mueller of collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia in 2016, and Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, CEO of online payment processing company Allied Wallet, were indicted for conspiring to conceal a $3.5 million contribution from Nader by making them in the name of Khawaja, his wife and his company, Allied Wallet Inc.

    Although the 53-count indictment does not specify the 2016 candidate involved, but campaign finance records indicate it was Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

    Nader is already in custody, charged with possessing child pornography and traveling with a minor for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity. He was convicted in 1991 of a child pornography charge.

    Khawaja also allegedly donated $1.8 million to various political committees, allowing him to host several fundraisers in 2016.

    Washington Examiner:
    “By design, these contributions appeared to be in the names of Khawaja, his wife, and his company. In reality, they allegedly were funded by Nader,” Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and FBI Washington Field Office chief Timothy Slater announced in a statement.
    “Khawaja and Nader allegedly made these contributions in an effort to gain influence with high-level political figures, including the candidate. As Khawaja and Nader arranged these payments, Nader allegedly reported to an official from a foreign government about his efforts to gain influence,” they continued.

    Khawaja was very generous to Democrats in 2016 as were some of his associates.

    The other charges in the indictment allege Khawaja and six associates — Roy Boulos, Rudy Dekermenjian, Mohammad “Moe” Diab, Rani El-Saadi, Stevan Hill, and Thayne Whipple — conspired to conceal executive contributions, totaling more than $1.8 million, to various political committees in 2016 through 2018. “Among other things, these contributions allegedly allowed Khawaja to host a private fundraiser for a presidential candidate in 2016 and a private fundraising dinner for an elected official in 2018,” Benczkowski and Slater said.
    Khawaja is also charged with obstructing the grand jury investigation in the summer by providing a witness called to testify in the case with false information about Nader and his connection to Khawaja’s company, while four of his associates are charged with obstruction by lying to the FBI.

    I included this paragraph for balance:
    As for Nader, he rated more than 100 mentions in Robert Mueller’s final report, most regarding possible UAE efforts to influence members of Trump’s campaign. Nader’s lobbying on behalf of the UAE crown prince involved setting up meetings with Trump campaign officials, including setting up a January 2017 meeting in the Seychelles “between Trump associate and Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a Russian official with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.”
