Pat Buchanan: “This What The Deep State Does To Outsiders”

CAP

By Tyler Durden

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

“This is a very sad time for our country. There is no joy in this,” said Nancy Pelosi Saturday.

“We must be somber. We must be prayerful. … I’m heartbroken about it.”

Thus did the speaker profess her anguish — just four days after announcing that her Democratic House would conduct an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

But is this how it really went down? Is this how Pelosi came to authorize an impeachment inquiry before she read the transcript of the conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky?

Another explanation, based on the actual events, suggests itself.

By late September, Pelosi was under constant fire from the House “resistance” that wanted Trump impeached and whose numbers were slowly growing. What was the speaker to do?

The judiciary committee is the body historically authorized by a vote of the full House to conduct impeachment inquiries. But to Pelosi this was looking like a loser, a dead end, a formula for failure followed by a backlash against House Democrats and her own removal as speaker in January 2021, if not before.

How so? Her judiciary committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler, in his investigation of Trump, had presided over a debacle of a hearing where Trump ally Corey Lewandowski mocked the members. House Budget Committee Chair John Yarmuth called the hearing a “fiasco.”

Thus, when news broke of a July 25 conversation between Trump and the president of Ukraine, during which Trump allegedly urged Zelensky “eight times” to investigate Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden’s connections to corrupt oligarchs, Pelosi seized upon it to solve all her problems.

To satisfy the red-hots in her Democratic caucus, she announced an impeachment inquiry on her own. To spare her moderates the pain of having to vote for or against an inquiry, she skipped the floor vote.

To ensure the investigation was done swiftly, she took the franchise from Nadler and his judiciary committee and handed it to Adam Schiff and the intelligence committee. Now she is urging a narrowing of the articles of impeachment to just one — Trump’s request of Ukraine’s president to look into the Bidens.

Pelosi’s hope: Have one House vote on a single article of impeachment by year end; then send it on to the Senate for trial and be done with it.

This is Nancy Pelosi’s fast track to impeachment of Trump and ruination of his presidency. But, to be sure, she is “heartbroken” about all this.

For three years, the media-deep state axis has sought to overturn the election of 2016 and bring down Trump, starting with Russia-gate. Now it appears to have tailored and weaponized the impeachment process.

That is what this is all about. It always is. Then-editor Ben Bradlee of The Washington Post, when it looked like the Iran-Contra matter might break Ronald Reagan’s presidency, after his 49-state landslide, chortled, “We haven’t had this much fun since Watergate.

This is what the deep state does to outsiders Middle America sends to Washington to challenge or dispossess it.

How should the Republican Party and Trump’s base respond?

Recognize reality. Whether or not Trump was ill-advised to suggest to the president of Ukraine that passing on the fruits of the investigation of Joe and Hunter Bidenthe end game is bringing down Trump, democracy’s equivalent of regicide.

While the “whistleblower,” whose memo is the basis of these impeachment hearings, is well on his way to Beltway beatification, no campaign to depose the president can be allowed to cloak itself in anonymity indefinitely, for one man’s whistleblower is another man’s seditionist.

Whom did the whistleblower collaborate with to produce his memo? What is his background? What are his biases? The people have a right to know. And democracy dies in darkness, does it not?

Not until 30 years after Watergate did we learn the “whistleblower” known as “Deep Throat” was a corrupt FBI veteran agent who leaked grand jury secrets to The Washington Post to discredit acting Director Pat Gray and thereby become FBI director himself.

His identity was sheltered for three decades. For whose benefit?

Republicans should not allow Democrats to fast-track this process but should give their troops time to recognize the stakes involved, organize a defense and repel this latest establishment attempt to overthrow a president elected to come to the capital to corral that establishment.

Force all the Democratic candidates for president to take a stand on removing Trump for high crimes — over a nebulous phone call to Kiev.

And the U.S. Senate should refuse to take up and should return to the House any bill of impeachment done in a short-circuited and savagely partisan manner, as this one is being done. There should be no rush to judgment.

If the election of 2020 is going to be about President Trump, tell the nation that the people will decide his political fate in November 2020, and that of Joe Biden if Democrats believe he is as pure as the driven snow and choose to nominate him.

UNHINGED: Maxine Waters Calls For President Trump to be “Imprisoned and Placed in Solitary Confinement”

 

Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) took her ‘impeach Trump’ rhetoric to the next level on Tuesday morning and called for the President to be “imprisoned and placed in solitary confinement.”

Maxine Waters is the Chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee and she is currently leading an investigation into Trump’s finances — now she’s calling for Trump’s First Amendment rights to be taken away and for him to be locked up like violent criminal without even naming a crime.

Maxine Waters is dangerous and should be removed as Chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee.

MAXINE WATERS: I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed. Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative.

CAP

Maxine Waters has previously called for President Trump to be impeached and imprisoned, however this is the first time she has called for him to be put in solitary confinement.

The Deep State-Democrat-media complex is calling for Trump’s impeachment following a hit from a CIA spy trying to pass himself off as a whistleblower.

A Brennan protege who was detailed to work in the White House and has since returned to the CIA, filed a whistleblower complaint based on second-hand knowledge and alleged President Trump engaged in quid pro quo when he asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Biden crime family.

The Trump-Zelensky transcript was declassified and the full, unredacted 5-page transcript was released last Wednesday morning following a Deep State CIA whistleblower hit.

The transcript destroyed the Democrat-Deep State-media narrative that Trump threatened Zelensky or engaged in quid pro quo to get him to agree to investigate Joe Biden’s son Hunter for his involvement with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company — but Maxine Waters is demanding the President of the United States be placed in solitary confinement.

Another One Bites the Dust: Dreadlock Girl Hate Crime is Exposed as a Hoax

By Jose Nino

It’s almost as if hate crimes are happening every day.

Well, that’s if you believe everything coming from the mainstream media.

Last Monday, Amari Allen, a sixth grader, claimed she was ”assaulted” during recess at her school playground by three white boys.

The student of Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia told the New York Times “They put me on the ground” during a phone interview. “One of them put my hands behind my back. One put his hands over my mouth. One cut my hair. They were saying that my hair was ugly, that it was nappy.”

However, the Washington Post revealed on Monday that the girl has withdrawn her story.

“The sixth-grade girl at a private Virginia school who accused three classmates last week of forcibly cutting her hair now says the allegations were false, according to statements from the girl’s family and the principal at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield. School officials met with the girl and her family Monday morning before releasing the statement,” the Post stated.

The grandparents of the girl, who are her in effect her legal guardians, released a statement on Monday.

“To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused,” the grandparents wrote in a statement sent to The Washington Post by the school. “To the administrators and families of Immanuel Christian School, we are sorry for the damage this incident has done to trust within the school family and the undue scorn it has brought to the school. To the broader community, who rallied in such passionate support for our daughter, we apologize for betraying your trust.”

“We understand there will be consequences and we’re prepared to take responsibility for them,” the statement continued. “We know that it will take time to heal, and we hope and pray that the boys, their families, the school and the broader community will be able to forgive us in time.”

The school’s principal, Stephen Danish, also released a statement and sent out an email to the school’s parents.

“We can now confirm that the student who accused three of her classmates of assault has acknowledged that the allegations were false. We’re grateful to the Fairfax County Police Department for their diligent work to investigate these allegations,” Danish wrote. “While we are relieved to hear the truth and bring the events of the past few days to a close, we also feel tremendous pain for the victims and the hurt on both sides of this conflict. We recognize that we now enter what will be a long season of healing.”

Another hate crime hoax bites the dust.

Like the previous Jussie Smollett hoax, this incident represents another attempt by unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of America’s political correctness culture and manufacturing outrage to create division in the country.

Thankfully, this hate crime hoax turned into nothing.

ELECTION BLACKLIST: YOUTUBE BURIES VIRAL VIDEO OF HILLARY CLINTON LYING FOR 13 MINUTES STRAIGHT

Election Blacklist: YouTube Buries Viral Video of Hillary Clinton Lying For 13 Minutes Straight

Deluged below over a dozen non-related mainstream media videos.

  – OCTOBER 1, 2019

YouTube has buried a viral video of Hillary Clinton lying for 13 minutes straight in yet another example of election blacklisting.

Despite the video obtaining over 15 million views, it remains buried under over a dozen mainstream media search results even when you search for the direct word for word title.

YouTube election blacklisting has been a hot topic since Steven Crowder drew attention to the fact that the Google-owned company was deliberately preventing conservative channels from appearing in search results.

YouTube has literally broken its own search engine in a partisan effort to make conservative content harder to find.

CAP

A search for “Steven Crowder Change My Mind” would previously not return any such videos, despite most of them having multiple millions of views.

A search for my own name also produced zero links to my videos but numerous links to videos from other channels criticizing me.

In a new video, Crowder notes that while YouTube has fixed some of these issues since last week, other examples of conservative content being buried, specifically in the United States, have not been reversed.

As Dr. Robert Epstein has proven, algorithmic manipulation can literally shift millions of votes. This is election meddling, plain and simple.

 

Pelosi NECK DEEP in Ukraine – Female Ukrainian Party Girl Connected to Military and Government is Her Legislative Aide

CAP

By Jim Hoft

Nancy Pelosi is neck deep in Ukraine politics.  Her legislative aide, Ivanna Voronovych, is from the Ukraine and is connected to the Ukrainian Embassy, the Ukrainian military, the Ukrainian government and Ukrainian party life.

Young Ivanna Voronovych was a party girl in the Ukraine and somehow managed to make her way into a position as a Legislative Aide to Nancy Pelosi –

Young Voronovych started her career working at the US Embassy in the Ukraine in Kiev.  She worked for Roman Woronowycz, the Kiev Bureau Chief, who is connected to Nancy Pelosi.   As a matter of fact, he is a fan of Pelosi’s.  Woronowycz is well connected with with the US Congress as can be seen from the picture below where he was given a tour of the Capital by Voronovych before reportedly meeting up with Pelosi, Schumer and others.  He once posted, “Tell Nancy to keep up the good work!”  (What is he referring to here?)

CAP

Voronovych’s parents are well connected.  Her mom worked with the Ukrainian Army, and even received the Ukraine Order of Merit for military and political activity.  Yoronovych’s father worked in the Ukrainian Foreign Service and he’s also connected to the Ukrainian government.

CAP

Why is this girl on Pelosi’s staff?  Why does Pelosi have a Ukrainian party girl whose parents are connected to the Ukrainian military and government on her staff?  What is going on here?

Finland college attack that killed 1 and injured 10: What we know so far

CAP

The Finnish city of Kuopio was gripped by violence on Tuesday after an attacker went on a stabbing spree targeting students temporarily based at a local shopping mall. Here is what is known about the incident so far.

Location: temporary college premises

The violence erupted in the Herman shopping mall in the southern part of the city. Some of its space was temporary rented by the Savo Vocational College while its campus is under renovation. The mall gave rooms to around 600 students and 50 employees of the college.

1 killed, 10 injured

Kuopio police found one dead body when searching the mall after responding to the emergency. Eight apparent victims of the attacker were also found and sent to local hospitals.

The suspected perpetrator was injured after police used firearms to apprehend the assailant. An officer recieved a minor injury as well. Two people were reported to be in critical condition.

Suspect was student, Finnish national with no criminal record

The police identified the suspect as a student of the college, born in 1994, with no criminal record. He is a Finnish citizen. The police are yet to determine what motivated him to attack fellow students.

Sword attack and fire

The man used a long-bladed weapon to cut his victims, police said, confirming accounts of witnesses, who said a sword was involved. He also had a firearm on him, the police said, but it’s not clear whether he used it or not. He may also be responsible for a small fire at the second floor of the mall, which was quickly extinguished.

Hungary Offers to Patrol Italian Border

See the source image

By Dan Lyman

Hungary is prepared to assist Italy in controlling its borders and deporting illegal migrants, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has announced.

The Hungarian leader extended an open hand of partnership to Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in the interest of defending Europe’s frontiers from mass migration.

“Dear Prime Minister Conte, if it’s needed, we are willing to take over the protection of certain sections of the Italian border,” PM Orbán said during an address to the annual congress of his ruling Fidesz party. “We will undertake the repatriation of a significant number of migrants in Italy to wherever they came from.”

“We are and we will remain a member of the European Union, but we don’t want a Brussels empire, but a union of European nations… We want to remain who we are, a proud European nation that has sprouted from Christian culture.”

PM Orbán’s offer comes on the heels of a similar proposal he put forward during a recent event in Rome organized by the nationalist-conservative party Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy).

“Hungary is ready to help Italy in whatever way we can, but there are areas where we cannot help,” Orbán said. “We cannot help with the transport and settlement of any migrants in Hungary. That is impossible.”

“But once you decide it, we can help you defend your borders, and if you are determined to send home the migrants who are already here, we can help you with that, too.”

“Mandatory settlement quotas, we cannot accept, but deportation quotas with pleasure,” Orbán declared. “So if PM Conte were to ask the Hungarians to send home a couple of thousand migrants from Italy back to where they came from, then Hungary will be ready and help fulfill such obligations.”

The Italian Interior Ministry reports that migrant arrivals by sea have begun to increase again for the first time in 2019, a trend which coincides with the ousting of former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who had managed to slash migration by a stunning 94 percent after mere months in office.

KAMALA HARRIS DEMANDS TWITTER BAN TRUMP

Kamala Harris Demands Twitter Ban Trump

Could “harm” someone with his words.

  – OCTOBER 1, 2019

Senator Kamala Harris has demanded that Twitter ban President Trump because his words “could result in harm to other people.”

Appearing on CNN Monday night, Harris asserted that Trump’s suggestion that Rep. Adam Schiff should be arrested for treason crossed the line.

“Frankly, when you look at what he’s been tweeting today, directed at the whistleblower, directed at so many people, I frankly, think that based on this and all we’ve seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress that frankly his Twitter account should be suspended,” said Harris.

“I think there’s plenty of now evidence to suggest that he is irresponsible with his words in a way that could result in harm to other people. And so the privilege of using those words in that way should probably be taken from him,” she added.

Harris re-iterated that Trump “could subject someone to harm” as a result of his words and that Twitter should take action.

“If he’s not going to exercise self-restraint, then, perhaps, there should be other mechanisms in place to make sure that his words do not in fact harm anyone,” she said.

Twitter has repeatedly made it clear that it won’t ban Trump whether the president violates their rules or not.

“Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate,” the company said last year.

WSJ’s Freeman: 2017 Politico Investigation Puts Hillary Clinton in Ukraine ‘Spotlight’

US ecretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton smiles with Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych prior to a joint press availability at the Presidential Administration Building in Kiev, Ukraine, Friday, July 2, 2010. Clinton is in Ukraine, the first leg of a trip which is due to take her also to Poland …

By DR. SUSAN BERRY

The Wall Street Journal’s (WSJ) James Freeman observed Monday that Hillary Clinton is now joining Joe Biden in the “new spotlight” on the United States’ relations with Ukraine.

Freeman, the assistant editor of the WSJ’s editorial page, noted that Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley (IA) and Ron Johnson (WI) wrote Monday morning to Attorney General William Barr, asking if he has come up with any answers to the question of whether the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign used the government of Ukraine “for the express purpose of finding negative information on then-candidate Trump in order to undermine his campaign.”

Grassley originally wrote in July 2017 regarding whether the DNC and the Clinton campaign had used the Ukraine government in order to sabotage the Trump campaign.

The senators continued:

That letter also highlighted news reports that, during the 2016 presidential election, “Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump” and did so by “disseminat[ing] documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggest[ing] they were investigating the matter[.]” Ukrainian officials also reportedly “helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers.”

The plan involved Alexandra Chalupa, reportedly a “Ukrainian-American operative” consulting for the DNC.

Chalupa “reportedly met with Ukrainian officials during the presidential election for the express purpose of exposing alleged ties between then-candidate Donald Trump, Paul Manafort, and Russia,” Grassley and Johnson wrote to Barr.

“The quotations come from a 2017 story in Politico, hardly a pro-Trump outfit,” Freeman, co-author of Borrowed Timeobserved, noting the headline, “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire.”

“Kiev officials are scrambling to make amends with the president-elect after quietly working to boost Clinton,” was the subheading, he pointed out.

Politico authors Kenneth Vogel and David Stern wrote in that article:

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

The goal of Ukraine’s reported aid to Clinton was to advance “the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia.”

Freeman noted:

With the benefit of hindsight and the results of the Mueller investigation, it’s now clear that there was no evidence of Trump campaign collusion with Russia. What is not clear and what demands further investigation is how this baseless claim managed to consume the first two years of an American presidency.

Though the idea of such an effort by Ukraine appeared unlikely to some, Vogel and Stern insisted:

Politico’s investigation found evidence of Ukrainian government involvement in the race that appears to strain diplomatic protocol dictating that governments refrain from engaging in one another’s elections.

Freeman concluded the Politico investigation “may be helpful in figuring out exactly how the surveillance tools of America’s national security apparatus were turned against the party out of power in 2016.”

Liz Cheney Asks If Pelosi Saw Ukraine Call Transcript Before Its Release: ‘Starting to Seem Like a Political Setup’

By Kristina Wong

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Monday said an intelligence official’s complaint that President Trump sought help from Ukraine in the 2020 elections “is starting to seem like a political setup.”

Cheney tweeted a clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appearing to admit she knew what was in the transcript of a July 25 Trump phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky even before the White House released the transcript of the call last Wednesday.

Pelosi, in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS News 60 Minutessaid Trump called her and they discussed the phone call before the transcript was released.

According to the New York Times, Trump and Pelosi’s phone call took place on Tuesday. The White House released the transcript on Wednesday.

But Pelosi said during the interview about her call with Trump, “He told me it was perfect. There was nothing in the call. But I know what was in the call. I mean, we — it was in the public domain.”

When Trump and Pelosi had spoken Tuesday, the call was not yet “in the public domain.”

Cheney tweeted:

.⁦@SpeakerPelosisaid on 60 Minutes last night she knew the details of the classified Ukraine call before White House released transcript. This is starting to seem like a political set up. So, Madame Speaker, “what did you know and when did you know it?”

Fred Fleitz, a former CIA analyst and chief of staff to former National Security Adviser John Bolton, has questioned whether the intelligence official who lodged a whistleblower complaint against Trump had help writing the complaint from Democrat lawmakers or their staff members.

He wrote in a New York Post op-ed on Thursday:

I am very familiar with transcripts of presidential phone calls since I edited and processed dozens of them when I worked for the NSC. I also know a lot about intelligence whistleblowers from my time with the CIA.

My suspicions grew this morning when I saw the declassified whistleblowing complaint. It appears to be written by a law professor and includes legal references and detailed footnotes. It also has an unusual legalistic reference on how this complaint should be classified.

From my experience, such an extremely polished whistleblowing complaint is unheard of. This document looks as if this leaker had outside help, possibly from congressional members or staff.

Moreover, it looks like more than a coincidence that this complaint surfaced and was directed to the House Intelligence Committee just after Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), an outspoken opponent of President Trump, expressed numerous complaints in August 2019 accusing President Trump of abusing aid to Ukraine to hurt Joe Biden. This includes an August 28 tweet that closely resembled the whistleblowing complaint.

House Republicans need to ask the whistleblower under oath whether he spoke to the press or Congress about his complaint.
