Clouding the facts.

Image result for Republican Impeach
A wise old lawyer gave me some good advice when I started trying cases as a young lawyer. It went  something like this: "Good lawyers try easy cases and settle hard ones. Bad lawyers settle easy cases and try hard ones". 

I thought about that saying today while I was watching portions of the impeachment hearings  running non-stop on cable news. The republican lawyers seemed to be stuck with a hard case, and rather than trying to settle and acknowledge the difficulty of their case, they spent all day today trying their best to try the case in the court of public opinion and to the republican members of congress.

Obviously, from a legal stand point, it didn't go too well.

Clearly the facts weren't on their side, and no matter how much they tried to yell, distract, and throw out straw man arguments, it didn't change what Mr. trump did: Attempt to hold up military aid to the Ukrainian government until he got help taking down a political rival. 

As Keith Ellison eloquently stated: "They've got a really bad case". It's hard to defend the indefensible . I know, I have been there myself a time or two. Unlike republicans, though,  I did not try to slam the process and shoot the messengers. I went with the hand that I was dealt.

But this isn't a court of law, it's a political court of public opinion, and the republicans have been doing their best to play to their base, and the crime boss in the White House. They have tried their best to turn the entire process into a three ring circus.

Sadly, it might be working, because the case against Mr. trump isn't going to be decided by a jury or a Judge. It is a political process.  This case will be decided by the the lazy American press and divided (and distracted) American people. Both of these groups are calling the hearings confusing and boring. (As if the impeachment hearings should be like some daytime game show. )

So while trump may be impeached, he will not be removed from office. The republicans have enough senators who are part of the cult of trump to prevent such a thing from ever happening. As one fellow twitter user recently stated:"The republicans have mastered the art of dangling the keys in front of idiots to distract them."  There are a lot of idiots in America these days.

Butt Trumpet, his tiny dick, his whore wife, and his retarded supporters are all too stupid to realize their time is nearing the end. It won’t be a very merry Christmas for those retarded fags.

And the most outstanding part to me was the amazing hypocrisy displayed by Republicans. Gaetz had the gall to say they should be dealing with real problems such as.......wait for it........CLIMATE CHANGE!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Seriously?

Hey, climate change isn't real! Everybody knows that!

Unless Trump is trying to buy Greenland, because the melting of the glaciers exposes mine-able minerals. Then climate change is suddenly real.

But immediately after that ... right back to being not real again!

That Republicans can watch this display of blatant hypocrisy from their president (or
Matt Gaetz) and see nothing absolutely wrong with it proves conclusively that Republicans R Dumb.

And in the middle of it all the IG report dropped, laying utter waste to all of the lies they have compiled as Fergus' defense.

And Billbar Buggins says he doesn't believe his own IG's findings.

Sorry, Billb, we have the report ourselves this time, so you can't just hold a press conference and tell us how awesome the report is for Fergus and expect us to believe you.

They're getting desperate and frantic as the walls close in on them and the quality of their lies is going down as the quantity goes up.

We're expecting two articles of impeachment tomorrow, one for abuse of power and one for obstruction of congress.

Similar to how blacks and their media cover up rampant black-on-black crime and rape in their communities? You people seem to love deflecting your bullshit onto white people.

Fucking dotard! There have been moar members of drumpf's administration/campaign charged and indicted than there are Blacks in America. That is reality. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! don't even bother.

So stoopid fucking wingnuts blasted Mueller, a middle of the road Republican for not being partisan enough to find criminal acts against FBI, so partisan Bill Blabbermouth Barr appoints a partisan wingnut named Durham to do a hatchet job on the IG's report.

You can always count on partisan wingnuts pickingp artisan wingnuts and swearing their guys are unbiased and open minded. Biggest jokes ever.

And don't forget, Christopher Wray, the author of the report these decades-long criminals are so in a tizzy over, was hand-picked by Don the Con.

Nice catch, D-Will. Wray puts country over party. Nowhere near enough like him in Putin's party of stoopid fucking wingnut Russia bots.

Pretty much every conspiracy theory and lie told by drumpf about Russia gate was debunked.

Added bonus, they were several moar sexcapades about drumpf in Russia, aside from pee gate, that were never disclosed in the Steele dossier. The IG report lists them.

The IG report un redacted much of Steele's dossier but Barr refuses to allow Steele to see the report and what was unveiled.

dinthebeast said...

Fergus has to pony up two mil to cover the mess his fraudulent "foundation" caused. Said Fergus previously of the case: "I won't settle." Ferg done settled, making his denial one more of the >13K lies he's been caught telling since becoming president.

In a lawful, functional administration, an AG who gave sworn testimony to the senate that the president's campaign and administration were "spied on" and then had that shown to be completely false by a 450 page IG report, would have to immediately resign.

We will have a lawful, functional presidential administration again, and such malfeasance will no longer be tolerated.

-Doug in Oakland

mike from iowa said...

iowa sinator Grassley sent me right wing Barr's AG talking points on IG report. I told him to resign because he can't read or comprehend, like every other stoopid fucking wingnut in America.

I also mansplained to his womanish ass the job description of the US AG is not to act as personal protector of drumpf.

mike from iowa said...

Doug, what is one moar liar in a swamp full of liars? Hopefully in 2020 we can begin to drain drumpf's shithole swamp of the shithole swamp dwelling treasonous russian agents in the wingnut party.

mike from iowa said...

3 wingnut sinators are targeted for elimination by a militia if they vote to impeach a drumpf. 3 more are being looked at.

A "President" has time to tweet about a supposed news channel interviewing Democrats? Sooooooooo, they're only supposed to take your word for things and ignore other lawmakers because they may disagree? This is officially the worst President ever. We need an adult in the WH.

Wonder why the usual suspects aren't bothering to show up to defend the indefensible? Not likely they actually have learned the truth and it sickens them.

“mike, turns out Chris Steele is (was) one of Ivanka's boyfriends.”

Maybe that’s the real reason why Trump is so outraged about the Steele dossier: Steele boned Ivanka and Trump is jealous he hasn’t gotten to.

Mistrial declared in trial of Tammie Galloway, a nappy-haired sheboon with "resting hate face" who is accused of murdering her 81-yr-old (white) neighbor Laura Shifrina.  The mistrial is because the sheboon's defense lawyer got himself smashed up by a car.

https://www.boston.com/news/crime/2019/12/09/needham-murder-mistrial

Homeless (worthless) African immivader from Cape Verde Bampumim Teixeira convicted of murdering 2 Boston anaesthesiologists, smiles during the trial, threatens the prosecutor's wife.  Apparently, murdering anaesthesiologists is a job that Americans Won't Do, so we have to import Africans.

Or maybe we should just DO WITHOUT AFRICANS?  Nahhhhh... law, order and safety is Not Who We Are.  At least, not since 1965.

Wakanda is a place where blacks have a functional industrial and technological civilization that has no whites even in supporting roles.  FUCK YES I know it's imaginary*.

Do you?

* It came to "life" in comics written by a couple of Jews, and lately a movie that used one fuckton of a lot of CGI.  Blacks didn't do the CGI either.

Jersey City shooters are violent negroes ,doesn't fit the liberal delusional narrative. Very little coverage by MSN because it does not fit their alt left agenda.

Hell they admit they don't even know where his true origin lies
an yet they call him African which indicates he came from there Africa and they don't seem to
realize they contradicting themselves so why call him that since they really don't know where he
really came from meaning they are just jumping to conclusions, presuming he is black for all they
know he can, could an would be from North Africa or South Asia or India but instead we're getting
this nigger propaganda crap. it only makes sense that Europeans can be Samurais since they have
discipline back where they came from not to mention they had Knights and Assassin's with cloaks an
daggers that are similar to a Ninja. blacks on the other hand didn't have neither of those ( a.k.a, e.g, i.e
disciplined warriors, assassins ) that are and or were in the same league as Caucasian an Asian warriors.
