Thursday Top News Executive Summary

Media Editors:  Above the Fold

IMPEACHMENT CIRCUS: “A majority of the House now backs impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, a significant milestone as Democrats move rapidly on an impeachment inquiry,” Politico  reports. “As of Wednesday night, 218 lawmakers have indicated support for impeachment proceedings — 217 Democrats and independent Rep. Justin Amash.” Meanwhile, the contentious whistleblower complaint finally dropped this morning (see below), wherein the whistleblower, citing “multiple U.S. Government officials,” alleges that “the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.” The complaint also asserts that “senior White House officials had intervened to ‘lock down’ all records of the phone call” between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The bottom line? Trump’s situation is troubling but hardly conclusive or impeachable.As a side bar, The Washington Free Beacon reports, “The lead counsel representing the Ukraine whistleblower donated to loose lips liar-Joe Biden’s presidential campaign earlier this year.”

ANOTHER ASYLUM DEAL: “The Trump administration signed an asylum agreement with the Honduran government Wednesday, marking the latest in a string of asylum deals with Latin American countries aimed at controlling the immigration crisis. The Department of Homeland Security announced it reached a deal with Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, allowing the U.S. to send some asylum seekers from ‘third’ countries back to his country.”

Government & Politics

BORDER OBSTRUCTION: “The Senate again voted on Wednesday to end President Trump’s emergency declaration on the U.S.-Mexico border wall, paving the way for a veto showdown with the White House,” The Hill reports. “Senators voted 54-41 on a resolution to end the declaration, which Trump used to shift billions of dollars from the military toward wall construction.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag-Schumer claimed: “The vote [yesterday] is the surest and likely the only way to restore funding the president has stolen from our troops and military projects across the country.” He didn’t care to mention the jobs, money, and even lives that have been stolen from the American people as a direct result of illegal immigration.

A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN: “A new national survey shows Elizabeth dinky-Warren now sitting atop the 2020 Democratic field, further cementing her ascendancy in the party’s presidential primary after a pair of polls reported her leading in the first two primary states,” according to Politico. “Twenty-seven percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents polled by Quinnipiac University said they favor dinky-Warren, according to a survey released Wednesday morning. Twenty-five percent said they prefer former Vice President loose lips liar-Joe Biden.” Rep. Dan Crenshaw speculates: “This impeachment inquiry seems worse for loose lips liar-Biden than it is for Trump. Now the Hunter loose lips liar-Biden-Ukraine issue is on everyone’s radar AND we know that Democrats overstepped with their ‘quid pro quo’ accusation. Have to wonder whether they did this to help dinky-Warren/commie-Sanders.”

Culture

WOKE DOLLS: “In an effort to be ‘woke’ and kowtow to the gender-confused masses, Mattel is coming out with a new line of Barbie-like dolls, called ‘Creatable World,’ that are gender-neutral and have a variety of interchangeable hairstyles and clothing choices to switch up the doll’s look.” (PJ Media)

CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR: “The marriage vow that usually involves a variation of ‘for richer or poorer’ may no longer apply. Women may now want to add ‘as long as you make as much money as me.’ It seems many men aren’t getting up to the income level that women prefer in a potential marriage partner, according to the New York Post. That has left successful ladies single and disgruntled, according to a Cornell University study.” (Fox Business)

‘JOKER’ ANXIETY: “Family members of those killed in the July 20, 2012, mass shooting at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado, have signed a letter to Warner Bros. sharing concerns about the upcoming Joker film and asking the studio to donate to groups that aid victims of gun violence. … As Warner Bros. gears up for the Oct. 4 release of Todd Phillips’ R-rated Joker, which is attracting attention for its gritty, realistic violence as well as for its artistry and the performance of star Joaquin Phoenix, some survivors and relatives of the victims are expressing fears about the film.” (The Hollywood Reporter)

Mark Levin Says Media Is Ignoring ‘Massive Democrat Scandal’ To Protect loosev lips liar-Biden

By Jack Davis 

{westernjournal.com } ~ There is a scandal involving an American politician and Ukraine, according to conservative commentator Mark Levin… However, it is not the one the mainstream media is currently obsessing about regarding President Donald Trump. It instead involves former Vice President loose lips liar-Joe Biden, now one of the Democratic candidates seeking the party’s presidential nomination.“You have a massive Democrat scandal here. That’s why the media are conducting themselves the way they are. That’s why the Democrats are trying to turn this inside-out. To immunize loose lips liar-Biden and to attack Trump, but it won’t work,” Levin said Monday during an appearance on the Fox News show “Hannity.”   This spring, allegations that loose lips liar-Biden inappropriately pressured Ukrainian officials were published in The New York Times. The report said that in 2016, loose lips liar-Biden twisted Ukraine’s arm to oust a prosecutor who was closing in on an energy company called Burisma Holdings, for which Hunter loosew lips liar-Biden was a board member pulling down a salary of about $50,000 a month. The Times report noted that in March 2016, the former vice president demanded Ukraine dismiss the prosecutor or face a loss of $1 billion in aid. loose lips liar-Biden said any notion of any conflict of interest is false. He insisted his son did not reach out to him. The report said that Ukrainian officials  have since reopened an investigation into Burisma. On Monday, Levin made it clear where he stood. “My take is that the loose lips liar-Biden family is corrupt,” he said. “My take is that loose lips liar-Joe Biden obstructed justice in the Ukraine. You want to find obstruction? There it was.”“And my take is that he blackmailed that government to get that prosecutor removed, and not just to protect his son, but to protect his future run for president of the United States,” he said. Levin said that the supposed whistleblower who voiced concerns about a July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is part of the problem. “I am sick and tired of this president’s conversations with foreign leaders being leaked to the media and Democrats on Capitol Hill,” he said…  https://www.westernjournal.com/mark-levin-says-media-ignoring-massive-democrat-scandal-protect-biden/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=conservativevideos&utm_campaign=dailyam&utm_content=libertyalliance

The Dominoes of Impeachment Start to Topple in Sequence

By JIM GERAGHTY

{nationalreview.com } ~ “I am announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry.” With those words yesterday evening… House speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi knocked down the first domino in a long line. That last word in that sentence matters; on paper, nothing changed with liar-Pelosi’s words. The House Judiciary Committee had already started an “impeachment inquiry,” but Democrats insist that this effort is different, because it is simple. We will get the — likely non-verbatim — transcript of Trump’s call to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky soon, but at this point, it’s almost moot. If Trump’s conversation includes an explicit quid pro quo, despite his denials, it will create a Category Five political hurricane, but if it doesn’t, many will insist the quid pro quo is implied strongly enough, and it will be “only” a Category Four political hurricane. Democrats have already gone out onto the limb, placed their bets, burned their ships like Cortés. There’s no way they can say, “Oh, wait, this call transcript doesn’t look as bad as we thought it would, never mind.” At this point, there are far too many national-security officials who are confirming the ugly implications of Trump’s own statements — that the issue he was most interested in discussing with Ukrainian officials was why they hadn’t uncovered and investigated what he believed was obvious, glaring, and far-reaching evidence of the loose lips liar-Bidens’ corruption. Notice this paragraph in today’s Post, discussing how White House officials felt about Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, suddenly taking such a large role in discussions with the Ukrainian government: Then-national security adviser John Bolton was outraged by the outsourcing of a relationship with a country struggling to survive Russian aggression, officials said. But by then his standing with Trump was strained, and neither he nor his senior aides could get straight answers about Giuliani’s agenda or authority, officials said. Bolton declined to comment. Officials whose job was to worry about U.S.–Ukraine relations and the security and stability in Eastern Europe did not find Hunter loose lips liar-Biden’s membership and actions on the Burisma board from April 2014 to 2019 to be particularly interesting, troubling, or relevant…  https://www.nationalreview.com/the-morning-jolt/the-dominoes-of-impeachment-start-to-topple-in-sequence/  

liar-Pelosi Makes Big Mistake  Trump Hints At Future Checkmate

by National Insiders

{nationalinsiders.com } ~ House Speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi gave the announcement on Tuesday that she was formalizing an impeachment inquiry into President Trump Tuesday evening… “The president must be held accountable” for his “betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections.” liar-Pelosi specifically charged that the administration had violated the law by not turning over a whistleblower complaint concerning Trump’s July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Citing testimony that the director of national intelligence was blocking the release of that complaint, she said: “This is a violation of law. The law is unequivocal.” Let’s face it, Trump has been viciously targeted by Democrats since his first day in office. They have put their full focus into trying to defeat him by whatever means possible and this is just the worst escalation of their miserable attempts to date. liar-Pelosi gave into the desires of freshmen congresswomen who were whining that Trump be impeached basically just for breathing. The socialist squad of brainless Democrats knows that they don’t stand a chance in a real election so their main strategy is to smear Trump’s name as much as possible with countless investigations. This plan, however, is primed to lead to failure for the party of left wing puppets. “It is a colossal error,” Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn said to Fox News just prior to liar-Pelosi’s comments. “And, I’m kind of surprised that Speaker liar-Pelosi, as shrewd as she is, would let it get to this point.” liar-Pelosi’s decision Tuesday heartened Democrats who have long called for impeaching the president, only to be stalled after Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of Russian collusion by the Trump campaign… Facts be damned, these idoits are not backing down and will continue with this impeachment inquiry.  https://www.nationalinsiders.com/pelosi-makes-big-mistake-trump-hints-at-future-checkmate/   

Impeachment fail: liar-Nancy Pelosi’s strategy is weak, say experts

by Samantha Chang

{bizpacreview.com } ~ The media are gaslighting the public to convince them that the Democrats are on the road to impeaching President Trump soon. However, attorneys say liar-Nancy Pelosi‘s impeachment strategy is toothless and weak… Until the House of Representatives actually votes to impeach, nothing is happening. It’s all political theater to undermine Trump and pacify the far-left wing of the Democratic Party. That’s it. CNN legal analyst Ross Garber — an impeachment attorney — mocked New York magazine for breathlessly tweeting that liar-Pelosi’s brief presser yesterday means that she’ll pass articles of impeachment. Garber tweeted: “Silly take. No. This isn’t how you’d do an impeachment process if you thought you’d actually impeach. You’d form a select committee or you’d staff up the Judiciary Committee.” Ross Garber underscored that liar-Pelosi’s political theatrics are merely a hollow gesture to mollify the far-left radicals in the Democratic Party. “I couldn’t have designed a weaker impeachment process if I tried,” Garber tweeted. “No House resolution. Not following the Nixon or scumbag/liar-Clinton models. No pledge of additional staffing.”… Facts be damned, these idiots will continue with this impeachment.   https://www.bizpacreview.com/2019/09/25/impeachment-fail-nancy-pelosis-strategy-is-weak-say-experts-829810?utm_campaign=bizpac&utm_content=Newsletter&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_source=Get+Response&utm_term=EMAIL#xsid=a62e_bkkY   

Ukraine president, in meeting with Trump, says ‘nobody pushed me’ to probe loose lips liar-Biden

By Andrew O’Reilly 

{foxnews.com } ~ Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during a meeting in New York with President Trump, told reporters Wednesday that he was not pressured to investigate the loose lips liar-Biden family… during their now-controversial phone call over the summer. “Nobody pushed me,” Zelensky said. The comments come after the White House released a transcript reflecting that call. It showed Trump sought a probe into loose lips liar-Biden family dealings in the country, though did not show Trump explicitly linking the request to U.S. aid as had been suspected. “We had a great phone call,” Zelensky added. “It was normal.” Trump interjected afterward: “In other words, there was no pressure and you know there was no pressure.” Trump’s meeting with Zelensky comes just hours after the White House released the transcript of their call over the summer and less than a day after House Speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi announced she was opening an impeachment inquiry into Trump over the issue. “She’s lost her way, she’s been taken over by the radical Left,” Trump said of liar-Pelosi. The speaker effectively endorsed the process, which to some degree has already been underway, after facing fresh pressure from inside the caucus to act. liar-Pelosi specifically charged that the administration had violated the law by not turning over a whistleblower complaint concerning Trump’s July call with Zelensky. Citing testimony that the director of national intelligence was blocking the release of that complaint, she said: “This is a violation of law. The law is unequivocal.”…  https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ukraine-president-backs-trump-says-no-pressure-on-biden-probe   .

.The Deep State Strikes Again

 Gary Bauer

When a president talks on the phone to a foreign leader, there are multiple people from intelligence agencies listening in. They make transcripts, which are circulated at the highest echelons of our security agencies so that everybody will know what the policy implications are of the conversation.One individual from an intelligence agency, whom the left and its media allies are referring to as a “whistleblower,” has alleged that President Trump made some sort of offer to a foreign leader that the individual claims was inappropriate.(It’s interesting that when leaks hurt the left, the leakers are jailed as criminals. But when a deep-state leaker tries to hurt Trump, he’s a “whistleblower.”)The leaker in this case reported his concerns about Trump’s call. The Justice Department reviewed them and determined that they did not rise to the level that required disclosure with congressional intelligence committees.Of course, the fake-news media complex immediately went into a frenzy. I suspect they all believed that the country in question was Russia and that Trump had been talking to Vladimir Putin. Some even suggested, with no more information than I just presented, that this “scandal” was a “constitutional crisis” that could bring down Trump’s presidency.That’s simply ridiculous. But that’s been the mindset of our media for the past two and a half years.Thursday, President Trump attempted to tamp down the hysteria. He said it was “dumb” to suggest he would “say something inappropriate” while on a “heavily populated call,” referring to all the people that he knows are listening in.Further leaks indicate that the controversial call was with the newly elected president of Ukraine, who, by the way, is a former comedian. It is quite possible that we may ultimately find out that the president simply made a joke that some denizen of the Deep State misinterpreted.My Guess on the CallI have no inside information, but here’s something I could easily imagine.There have been strong allegations that then-Vice President loose lips liar-Joe Biden threatened senior Ukrainian officials with dour consequences (the loss of a $1 billion loan) unless a prosecutor investigating a company that employed loose lips liar-Biden’s son was fired — and he was.According to reports, Hunter loose lips liar-Biden made at least $1.8 million as a board member of this Ukrainian natural-gas company. But Big Media have largely ignored the allegations.There have been reports that Rudy Giuliani has talked to Ukrainian officials to ask if there is any evidence of wrongdoing by either loose lips liar-Joe or Hunter loose lips liar-Biden.I could certainly imagine President Trump saying to the Ukrainian president-elect, “Congratulations on your victory. By the way, if there’s anything to these loose lips liar-Biden allegations, it could be to your benefit to share it.”Again, this is just a guess, and it could certainly be something entirely different.You’d think more journalists would be interested in finding out how “Middle-Class loose lips liar-Joe” and his family made their millions. But no. The media are only interested in taking Trump down.Climate StrikeYesterday was the big global climate strike. You should check out how many students participated in your town by walking out of school and pushing the demands of this movement. It will give you a good indication of just how bad the indoctrination is in your local schools.According to one recent survey, 57% of American teenagers said that news about climate change has made them “afraid,” while 52% said they are “angry.” This is what the left’s propaganda has done to our kids. It has filled them with rage and anxiety.Just to be clear, everyone is for clean air and clean water. But that’s not the demand of this movement.It is demanding a complete reordering of the American economy by using the power of big government to change what you eat, where you work, where you live, the temperature on your thermostat, what you drive (if you drive at all), and virtually everything else in your life.Don’t take my word for it.Saikat Chakrabarti, Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s former chief of staff, recently admitted that, telling a fellow progressive, “[The] Green New Deal … wasn’t originally a climate thing at all… We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”Other progressives are more honest about their intentions, insisting that “If you take climate change seriously, you do have to throw out the free-market playbook.”I don’t blame the children who marched yesterday. They have been indoctrinated with false propaganda. As Ronald Reagan used to say, “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”The irony is that if we didn’t have the incredible miracle that is our carbon-based economy, none of these kids would be able to take and post selfies so they can show their friends and family just how morally superior they are.And that got me thinking how educational it would be if the million-plus people employed in the energy industry went on strike because they were sick and tired of being maligned by people who know so much that isn’t so.I think the polls would quickly find more teenagers a lot more fearful and angry as the lights started going out and their cellphone batteries started dying.A “Shocking” DevelopmentIf you felt the earth tremble yesterday it was probably caused by the news that Mayor scumbag-Bill de Blasio dropped out of the presidential race, triggering a seismic shift among the other candidates all vying for his 0% in the polls.  ~The Patriot Post
