Schiff: Whistleblower to Speak before Congress

by Daveda Gruber:

On Sunday House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., announced that an agreement had been reached with the House and the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Trump in regard to the July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Schiff was a guest on ABC’s “This Week” and explained that the agreement with the whistleblower and his or her lawyers has been settled.  He also made it clear that the identity of the whistleblower would be protected.

Schiff said, “As with [acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph] Mcguire, that whistleblower will be allowed to come in without White House or DOJ lawyers to tell him or her what they can or can’t say.”

Schiff also added, “We are taking all the precautions we can to protect the whistleblower’s identity. With President Trump’s threats, you can imagine the security concerns here.”

Schiff’s concern with the anonymity of the whistleblower comes after Trump allegedly threatened “the person” who he said gave information to the whistleblower when he spoke with staff from the U.S. mission to the United Nations at a private event in New York.

The whistleblower remains unnamed at this point but much is on the table regarding the testimony to be given before Congress.

Republications will have to pick a side because the impeachment of a president is no small matter.

Trump will also have pressure on himself to rebut the core contentions of the aforementioned phone call.

In an audio posted by The Los Angeles Times Trump said, “Who’s the person who gave the whistleblower the information? Because that’s close to a spy. You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? The spies and treason, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”

On Sunday Schiff was on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” On that show Schiff said that the president’s behavior was so “egregious” that House lawmakers were forced to open an impeachment inquiry relating to his call with the Ukrainian leader.

Schiff said, “The gravamen of the offense here is the president using the power of his office to coerce a foreign nation into helping his presidential campaign to once again interfere in our election, and at the same time withholding foreign aid that country so desperately needs to fight off who? The Russians.”

He also added, “The situation demands that we move forward with the inquiry.”

The Democrats, if not all of them, then at least the progressive ones want to impeach President Trump and have given the rest of their party no alternative but to initiate an inquiry into impeachment. The fact that no vote to do so was implemented doesn’t seem to bother lawmakers.

Folks, I don’t know about you but, I read the readout of the phone call in question. From the information given, at this point, it appears that former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, have a lot more to worry about than Trump.

I’ve always said that the wheels of justice move very slowly but I’ve never waited this long to see justice being served. After all, there is a video which shows that the elder Biden used quid pro quo in getting the top Ukrainian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, fired.

Biden allegedly wanted the prosecutor ousted to protect his son, Hunter, from being investigated. That fact is adamantly denied by Biden.

The Ukraine’s largest private gas company, Burisma, hired the younger Biden and paid him up to $50,000 a month.

Stayed tuned folks, corruption is abundant in government but the end result of that finding doesn’t necessarily tell the whole story.

Is your popcorn ready? Mine is.

Want to Read the Transcript of the Call Trump Made to Ukraine?

by Daveda Gruber:

What could President Donald Trump have said to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July? You can actually see it here and decide for yourself.

The transcripts of the call have been released and nothing is redacted.

Of course, after reading, Democrats will interpret the wording one way and Republicans another way. Did you expect anything different?

Read the report here:

Ukraine Call Transcript by Fox News on Scribd

The person who is actually looking bad in the transcript is former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump told the American people that the stock market rising after the transcript came up is a great indication that the phone call had nothing wrong in it and had more to say.

Here is Trump speaking:

Trump tweeted this:

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi came out of closed door meetings on Tuesday and said that the Democrats are opening an investigation into the impeachment of Trump. But the Democrats jumped the gun and didn’t bother to wait until the transcript was released today to look at the transcript of the phone call that was at the helm of the Whistleblower letter that allegedly accused someone of wrong doing.

But Democrats have not seen the Whistleblower report. The name of the Whistleblower is not known as of yet.

Democrats now want to see the Whistleblower’s accusation; in fact, they’re demanding it.

The mention of promised money being held back for information on Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden is what the Democrats were banking on. There was no such message in the phone call according to the transcripts.

But then, Democrats have an unusual way of reading and seeing documents in a rather different light than Republicans.

The blame game is in full force. Democrats, in fact, one in particular, Representative Adam Schiff, D-CA.,  is stating that money was withheld and that the president of the Ukraine allegedly got a Mafia like threat that didn’t have to be actually stated for him to assume he was being threatened by monies being withheld.

Hear/see Schiff speak here:

The question of the alleged deeds of Joe Biden being investigated for alleged possible wrong doing involving his son Hunter is actually something that should be investigated.

Congressman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., is calling for Attorney General William Barr to recuse himself from a possible Ukrainian probe.

Haven’t we had enough with the Russia probe? Do we want to spend another few years on a new probe now that it is rather obvious that nothing came out of Mueller’s report on a very costly investigation? No!

The president has been talking to world leaders at the UN this week. The problems in the world are at the forefront but the Democrats have taken this week to over-shadow Trump with attacking him once more.

How many times can these lawmakers step away from the job that they are paid for and create investigations that are very expensive but produce no particular outcome?

It appears that the answer is as many as they can.

Get out the popcorn because this investigation cannot end well for the Democrats. They’ve been caught with their hands in the cookie jar. My humble opinion on this matter is that the former vice president is the one who will go down over this.

Which Democrat Will be Next to Drop Out of the Race?

by Daveda Gruber:

As time goes on, the group of presidential runners for the Democratic nomination is slowly shrinking. The next person to be stepping out of the race will most likely be the man who had a Spartacus moment earlier this year.

Senator Cory Booker’s D-NJ., campaign manager, Addisu Demissie, sent out a memo to staffers that warned that Booker must raise an additional $1.7 million by the end of the third quarter of fundraising, which is only 10 days away. If this can’t be done, Booker’s campaign will not have a “legitimate long-term path forward.”

Two sources have allegedly explained that the memo was leaked to NBC News and for good reason. There is now an ongoing effort to spark a rise in fundraising over the next ten days.

Booker tweeted this:

On Saturday morning a campaign memo was sent to political reporters.

The memo reads, “This isn’t an end-of-quarter stunt or another one of those memos from a campaign trying to spin the press. This is a real, unvarnished look under the hood of our operation at a level of transparency unprecedented in modern presidential campaigns.”

Booker had built an intimidating operation in the early voting primary and caucus states. Large staff on the ground in Iowa, New Hampshire, and other early voting states is rather expensive to maintain.

Demissie has warned that while the campaign can continue at its current size and strength,  it does need more funding if it wants to expand to what it needs to be.

Demissie wrote in the memo, “If our campaign is not in a financial position to grow, he’s not going to continue to consume resources and attention that can be used to focus on beating Donald Trump, which needs to be everyone’s first priority.”

Booker launched his run for president early in February and qualified for the third and fourth round Democratic presidential primary debates.

The New Jersey Senator raised 4.5 million in the April-June second quarter of fundraising. That many sound like a lot but it actually is far behind former Vice President, Joe Biden; Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders; Senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren; and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

But Booker has also struggled in polling. He averages in the low to mid-single digits, which is far behind the top-tier contenders who are former Vice President Joe Biden and Senators  Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

From what I see, one of these top three will be the Democratic nominee.

Have You Seen the New Biden Video?

by Daveda Gruber:

President Trump’s reelection campaign seems to be enjoying keeping an eye on former Vice President Joe Biden.

The new video that they have released shows that they carefully have compiled the best clips of Biden gaffs.

The clips show a confused Biden stumbling through gaffs and other verbal fumbles and even bumbling interactions with fellow candidates for the 2020 presidential nomination.

The 76 year old Biden as turned out to be the gift that keeps on giving.  His remarks including  “poor kids” are just as talented as “white kids,” not knowing that he was in New Hampshire when he described how beautiful Vermont is, choosing “truth over facts” and “record players,” which he mentioned on the most recent debate stage.

Then there was Biden calling Senator Cory Booker, D-N.J., the president then switched it to “future president.” Biden has also referred to himself as the current Vice President.

Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro, who served in the Obama administration with Biden, hit Biden with a low blow about Biden’s memory. Castro argued that Biden contradicted himself on whether Americans would have to buy into his healthcare plan.

Castro asked, “You just said two minutes ago they would have to buy in. Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?”

It was a low blow because it was later proven by the Biden campaign that Castro had gotten it wrong.

The video closes with an indication that Trump gave Sleepy Joe a perfect name.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted this out on Tuesday:

It is understandable that some Democrats are fearful of Biden’s ability to run against Trump if Biden should win the Democratic nomination.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that in my personal opinion there is no Democratic candidate running for the nomination who can beat Trump. I’d invite Biden to challenge Trump.

Relax and get out the popcorn, this should be fun.

Watch the video here:

Donald Hump – a Biden Freudian Slip?

by Daveda Gruber:

Former Vice President Joe Biden was using a line he likes to spew on the campaign trail.

While in Manchester, New Hampshire, at the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s annual convention, Biden took jabs at President Trump.

Biden said, “We cannot and I will not let this man be re-elected president of the United States. Limited to four years, I believe history will look at the presidency as an aberrate moment in time.”

Biden continued and put emphases on the Freudian slip,  “If Donald Hump, Donald Trump, Freudian slip.”

The crowd of Democrats cheered as Biden corrected himself and repeated the line, saying “if Donald Trump is re-elected, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.”

It is no secret that Biden would love to beat the man who occupies the White House, President Trump.

Biden has made electability one of his top selling points as he scuffles in the crowded Democratic group of challengers for the nomination. He spent much of his address to the New Hampshire audience targeting Trump.

To the pleasure of the Democrat audience, Biden repeated a line he likes to use in saying that Trump “lacks the moral authority to lead”.

He went on to say, “This president has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington.”

There it is folks, Biden speaking, in a nut shell.

Is Biden Suffering Brain Damage?

by Daveda Gruber:

On Wednesday former Vice President Joe Biden’s eye appeared red with blood during a climate change town hall hosted by CNN.

During this evening event, people took to social media to spread the images.

This bloodshot eye brought to light questions about Biden’s health.

A doctor who viewed the eye images, Dr. Danielle Strauss, a board-certified ophthalmologist practicing in New York and New Jersey, said “Mr. Biden appeared to develop a subconjunctival hemorrhage. This is a common and harmless condition which can develop after coughing, sneezing or straining, and is more common in elderly people on blood thinners.”

Dr. Danielle Strauss  continued, “People who develop this may not notice it until they look in the mirror or until someone else points it out.”

Now, that’s all well and good but the doctor did not examine the 76 year old Biden.

The former VP’s health issues didn’t start on Wednesday evening.

He suffered from two brain aneurysms in 1988.

Biden’s mental health has been questioned, as well, as of late.

Dr. Neal Kassell, who treated Biden for the aforementioned brain aneurysms, maintains that Biden’s brain is intact and functioning and that he has no brain damage from the hemorrhage or the operations.

I tend not to believe everything that I am told. Frankly, I just don’t believe everything that is said by others.

If Biden has any alleged health issues, those issues would be kept quiet at this time.

Have You Heard What Biden Said?

by Daveda Gruber:

Former Vice President Joe Biden is the current front runner in the 2020 Democratic primary but this may come to an end as the man clearly has a problem with gaffes.

Biden, who is 76 years old now and will be 77 in November seems to get confused easily. The man, at times, appears to try to cover up his mistakes and sometimes he lets them slide because he may not even know what he said wrong.

Biden appears to be not as left leaning as some of his competitors and that may appeal to some Democrats who don’t lean all the way to the left.

While talking to a group of Asian and Latino Commission in Des Moines, Iowa. Biden said, “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

At the Iowa State Fair Biden mystified some in the crowd when he said, ” We choose truth over facts.”

Remember that Biden would be 78 years old if he won the Democratic nomination and that may be a little too old to start a term of the presidency if he were even able to win.

Would creepy uncle Joe even have enough stamina to run against President Trump? The campaign trail can be grueling and public speaking appearances and debates need a lot of focus. Does Biden have the intelligence to be on the ball to get through all of this? No, I don’t believe so.

Would we hear more gaffes from him? Probably we would hear more than we need or want to hear. The gaffes are already happening more frequently.

There are two new gaffes that are on video. They are pretty bad ones.

I’d say that Biden is too old and confused to run even in the Democratic primary let alone run against Trump for the presidency but then, that’s only my humble opinion.

Biden Claims Russian Election Interference Wouldn’t Happen on ‘His Watch’

by Daveda Gruber:

On Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden has stated that Russia wouldn’t dare “undo” elections on his watch.

Biden did an interview on CNN, which aired on Friday, where he made some strong claims about President Trump.

The former vice president slammed Trump’s foreign policy and also predicted that NATO would cease to exist if Trump were re-elected as president of the United States.

The Democratic presidential frontrunner said, “We need allies. He’s absolutely dissing them. He’s embracing thugs. He’s embracing [North Korean dictator] Kim Jong Un. He’s embracing [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, who’s a flat dictator. And he’s stiff-arming our friends. He’s threatening NATO to pull out of NATO. I mean, come on!”

Biden was then asked by CNN anchor Chris Cuomo answered, “He says he’s gotten NATO to give in more money for defense because of his tactics.”

Biden came back with, “Oh, give me a break. Let me put it this way; If he wins re-election, I promise you there will be no NATO in four years or five years.”

That was a pretty bold statement. It appears that Biden has a crystal ball from which he can predict the future.

CNN tweeted this:

Grabien  Media tweeted this:

 

Biden said, “Look at what’s happening with Putin. While Putin is trying to undo our elections, he is undoing elections in Europe. Look at what’s happening in Hungary, look what’s happening in Poland, look what’s happening. You think that would happen on my watch or Barack’s watch? You can’t answer that, but I promise it wouldn’t have, and it didn’t.”

Biden then delved into Russian interference in European countries.

Biden went on to say, “While Putin’s trying to undo our elections, he’s actually undoing elections in, in Europe. Look at what’s happening in Hungary… look at what’s happening! You think that would happen on my watch, on Barack’s watch? You can’t answer that, but I promise you it wouldn’t have. And it didn’t.”

Did Biden forget that he was Barack Obama’s vice president from 2009 until the end of 2016?

Trump won the presidential election on November 8, 2016 and became the President-elect. Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence, were formally elected by the Electoral College on December 19, 2016.

I’m not a mathematical genius, but to me that puts Biden, along with Obama, in the White House during the 2016 elections.

I tweeted this:

The intelligence community determined Russia did try to interfere in the 2016 election which took place during the Obama administration when he was vice president.

So, we know where Biden was when Vladimir Putin was interfering in the U.S. election. Maybe he just doesn’t remember? Well, maybe he just wants to forget that he and Obama couldn’t or wouldn’t address the matter?

Dems Want Health Care for Illegal Migrants – Which Candidate is Not Eligible?

by Daveda Gruber:

Another evening of Democratic debates was watched on millions of TV screens across America. Part two of the first time the candidates stood at podiums on a stage and debated was aired for all to watch. But no one has mentioned that one of the candidates is not eligible to run for the presidency.

Democratic presidential hopefuls went far left when they agreed that they would support healthcare for illegal immigrants. They also support no deportations of illegal migrants whose only offense is being undocumented and they want to decriminalize crossing the southern border illegally.

NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie asked the candidates, who were lined up on the stage, if their universal health care plans would include “undocumented immigrants.”

The candidates on the stage, who represent about one half of the candidates running for the party 2020 nomination, all raised their hands in unity.

The candidates seen last night include former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.;  Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY.; Eric Swalwell, D-U.S. Representative for California’s 15th congressional district since 2013; Pete Buttigieg D- mayor of South Bend, Indiana, since 2012; Michael Bennet, D-CO.; John Hickenlooper D- 42nd Governor of Colorado from 2011 to 2019; Andrew Yang, D-businessman; and Marianne Williamson, D-author.

President Trump was apparently watching TV in Japan. He tweeted this:

The president was not the only one who had those thoughts. The New York Post put out the paper and on the front page was an image of the candidates raising their hands and a question was asked: “Who wants to lose the election?”

No one was safe from the mud-slinging. Even Obama was criticized by Harris for allowing the deportation of illegal immigrants she described as “non-criminals.”

Harris said, “On this issue I disagreed with my president because the policy was to allow deportation of people who by [Immigration and Customs Enforcement]’s own definition were non-criminals.”

She went on to say that she told sheriffs they did not have to comply with ICE detainers when she served as California attorney general.

The former Obama Vice President, Biden was asked if he would deport “an individual living in the United States without documents” if that was their only offense.

Biden answered only “if they committed a major crime” should they be deported. It is not clear what constitutes a “major crime.”

Biden was asked the question again and he said, “That person should not be the focus of deportation.”

“We should fundamentally change the way we deal with things,” Biden said.

The Center for Immigration Studies, Mark Krikorian, responded to the statements by accusing Democrats of wanting to essentially abolish U.S. federal immigration law.

Krikorian tweeted this:

There was another question asked by one of the moderators and the answer was given by candidates with a show of hands.

Candidates were asked if they supported making crossing the border illegally a civil, rather than a criminal, offense.

Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., did not raise his hand and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper hesitated.

Biden, on the other hand, asked to clarify but then said that the “first thing I would do is unite families. He added that he would “surge billions of dollars worth of help to the region, immediately.”

This group of Democrats have hopes of being the leader of the free world, as POTUS.

What I saw was a group of people trying to beat each other up and threw into the mix that they thought President Trump was a terrible leader and that they could beat him in a run for the presidency.

Also, as many of you know, I research my work. After going through the list of potential presidential candidates, I had to open my eyes wide and see that one of the candidates allegedly, does not legally qualify to be president.

Yes, really. Michael Farrand Bennet is an American businessman, lawyer, and politician serving as the senior United States Senator from Colorado since 2009. A member of the Democratic Party, he was appointed to the seat when Senator Ken Salazar became Secretary of the Interior.

He was born on  November 28, 1964 (age 54 years) in, get this, NEW DELHI, INDIA.

The president is constitutionally required to be natural born, but foreign-born Senators need only nine years of U.S. citizenship to qualify for office.

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States shall be eligible to the Office of President.

The Twelfth Amendment states that “no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice President of the United States.

I’ve discovered that we have an ineligible Democratic contender. Why has no one else discovered this? Fact checking is important.

Stay tuned. Who knows what I’ll uncover next.

 

What Did Bernie Say is a Constitutional Right?

by Daveda Gruber:

When it comes to the Constitution, I stand by the document one hundred percent. Senator Bernie Sanders, the Democrat 2020 Presidential runner from Vermont, insists that he stands by abortion being a  “constitutional right.”

On Wednesday Sanders made the statement as an seeming comeback to the virtual abortion ban just approved in Alabama.

It is no surprise that Sanders believes that abortion is a right of the woman to choose no matter what the situation is.

Alabama’s legislature passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a ‘class A felony’ at any stage of pregnancy. There are almost no exceptions.

Democratic presidential candidates have all made similar arguments to give women the right to choose as they are totally against the Alabama bill. If the bill becomes law, it will go into effect in six months.

Sanders tweeted this out:

Have you ever read the Constitution? I never saw anything in the Constitution that makes abortion a “constitutional right.”

In fact, the U.S. Constitution does not specifically address abortion. Now, abortion-rights activists argue that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution includes a “right to privacy” that allows women to decide whether to have an abortion. The Supreme Court has basically endorsed abortion as referred to in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

I still do not understand how a right to terminate a pregnancy and in that decision end a baby’s life and that be considered the right to privacy? Privacy to commit murder?

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is also a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, tweeted:

On Wednesday New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said on MSNBC, “This is an outrage and it’s nothing short of an attack on women’s basic human rights and civil rights and it’s something that women of America are going to have to fight against with everything they’ve got.”

In the United States, over 92% of abortions are the result of unintended pregnancy. I’d like to introduce a couple of novel ideas. Women can abstain from the activity that produces a pregnancy, use measures that prevent pregnancy or have an operation to prevent a pregnancy. Also, men can do this too. A vasectomy is easy to get.

If Alabama and other conservative states hope to ignite legal fights and eventually overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, conservative justices must continue to be added to the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Trump has done a fine job with Supreme Court Justices, so far, and that could put an end to the right to abortion except for extraordinary circumstances.

Isn’t it time for Americans to stop murdering their children? Shouldn’t we give the unborn a right to live?
