Democrats sucking lemons today

“Sucking Lemons”

Tim Morrison, the senior director of European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council, testified before Rep. Adam Schiff’s kangaroo court yesterday. Morrison’s appearance before the House Intelligence Committee was newsworthy for several reasons.

First, Morrison was one of the officials who was authorized to listen in on President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian leader, so he has first-hand knowledge of what was said. He also announced that he was leaving his NSC position prior to his testimony.

That announcement was treated by the media as a major bombshell. Virtually every outlet ran damning headlines like this one: “Top NSC Russia Official To Step Down Ahead Of Impeachment Testimony.”

It seemed as if reporters were expecting Morrison to spill the beans and betray Trump. That’s not what happened.

In his testimony, Morrison told lawmakers: “I want to be clear, I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed.” Did you heard that on the evening news?

But Morrison did have concerns about the call. And, of course, the fake news media tried to portray Morrison’s concerns as trouble for Trump, reinforcing the testimony of the president’s critics. Again, they were wrong.

Morrison was concerned that aspects of the call would leak out (he was right about that!), and he was concerned about “how it would play out in Washington’s polarized environment.” In other words, Morrison knew that Deep State partisans would leak the classified call and twist Trump’s words.

And that’s exactly what the so-called “whistleblower” did, which triggered this entire impeachment sham.

Commenting on Morrison’s testimony, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), said, “Some of my Democrat colleagues look like they’re sucking lemons this morning.”

Same Gang, New Hoax

Keep in mind, friends, that this is the same gang who used the Russia collusion hoax for two and a half years desperately trying to take down the president. Adam Schiff said there was “evidence [of collusion] in plain sight.” Well, Robert Mueller with hundreds of subpoenas and an army of liberal lawyers couldn’t find it.

Eric Ciaramella, the Deep State leaker who filed the initial Ukraine complaint, worked for John Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, and Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice. She was a key player in the Russia hoax.

Remember that bizarre “CYA” memo she wrote to herself on her last day in the White House? She also exposed the identities of American citizens caught up in the Deep State’s monitoring of the Trump campaign and lied about it.

The same newspapers that pushed the Russia collusion charge – the Washington Post and the New York Times – are the same papers driving the coverage of the Ukraine hoax.

The same Deep State operatives who were trying to undermine Trump’s presidency before he took office – John Brennan, James Clapper, Andrew McCabe – are constantly on TV now promoting the Ukraine hoax.

Former CIA Director John McLaughlin was asked this week about his thoughts on the current impeachment controversy being triggered by members of the intelligence community. His response, “Thank God for the Deep State!”

That remark should send a chill down the spine of every American voter – regardless of party affiliation. He is rejoicing that partisan bureaucrats, many in our intelligence agencies, are attempting to overturn the 2016 election results, defying the will of the American people.

Can you imagine the media’s reaction if conservative CIA operatives had attempted to get Obama impeached for his secret dealings with the ayatollah of Iran!

I hate summer repeats. If I have the TV on in the summer and see that the show is a repeat, I’ll turn it off and grab a book. Well, this is a terrible repeat. The only thing different about this script is that the country is at stake.

A Fireside Chat?

The White House is brainstorming ways to counteract this nonsense. One idea reportedly under consideration is an FDR-style fireside chat, an address to the nation during which the president would read the transcript of his call with the Ukrainian president.

As we know, Adam Schiff read a fake transcript live on national TV. Republicans on the Intelligence Committee rightly called out Schiff, and he admitted it was a parody. But it fooled many people, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi!

While I can certainly understand the president’s frustration, there’s a danger. The left will have the transcript in his voice. Just like the initial reporting of the transcript, they will cherry-pick lines and leave out hundreds of words to manufacture a quid pro quo between investigating Biden and aid for Ukraine. That selective editing will immediately appear in negative ads, further confusing the American people.

Unfounded Concerns

The so-called CIA “whistleblower” and many of the people who have testified behind closed doors are mostly saying the same thing, according to the leaks. They were deeply concerned that the president was going to withhold aid from Ukraine until he got the information he wanted about corruption in the 2016 election.

Here’s what I want to know: Where were all these leakers and “whistleblowers” when Barack Obama was actually withholding aid from Ukraine?

In the spring of 2014, Ukraine had just gotten its teeth kicked in by Vladimir Putin and Russian special forces. But Obama was unwilling to do anything more than send food and socks.

Why didn’t these Deep State “patriots,” deeply concerned about U.S. national security policy, file whistleblower complaints and leak to the media then?

Well, it has nothing to do with Ukraine or Russia really. Donald Trump sent Ukraine the lethal military aid that Obama never would!

No, these unfounded concerns for Ukraine and national security have everything to do with the Deep State’s hatred for Donald Trump and Mike Pence.

Perhaps there was another reason for the Deep State’s silence. Whenever the Obama Administration found a leaker, it destroyed them. Reporters who used leaked material related to national security, got “roughed up” too. As the Associated Press noted last year:

“The Obama administration used the 1917 Espionage Act with unprecedented vigor, prosecuting more people under that law for leaking sensitive information to the public than all previous administrations combined. Obama’s Justice Department dug into confidential communications between news organizations and their sources as part of that effort.”

The notion that this is a bunch of noble civil servants speaking up for truth is fake news. These are partisan hacks pushing their own agenda.

Good News

The latest jobs report shows the Trump economy is chugging along, in spite of various headwinds. Job growth for October shattered expectations coming in at 128,000 new jobs, well above the 75,000 that the “experts” had predicted.

In addition, there were big changes to the August and September figures. The number of new jobs created in August was revised up by 51,000 to 219,000 jobs. September’s figures were revised up by 44,000 new jobs.

And here’s more good news: The unemployment rate for African Americans fell to 5.4% – a new record low.

The president the left calls a “racist” has done more to help black Americans in three years than Barack Obama did in eight.
