House Impeachment Public Hearings – 
Day One – William B. Taylor and George
Kent – 10:00am Livestream
 by sundance
{ } ~ The House Intelligence Committee will begin holding public hearings to impeach President Donald Trump today at 10:00am EDT... The hearings are carefully scripted, organized and planned. Day One begins with Ambassador William Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary George Kent. To support the Democrat impeachment effort all major media networks are carrying the event live, and promoting their anticipation of drama. Impeachment Chairman scumbag-Adam Schiff has threatened severe punishment if any member of congress speaks publicly about the CIA helping to organize the ‘whistleblower‘ effort. Mr. Taylor currently serves as the Chargé D’affaires for the U.S. State Department in Ukraine. Mr. Kent serves as Deputy Assistant Secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the U.S. Department of State. Both State Dept. officials disagree with President Trump’s foreign policy which they hope will lead to his removal from office...
Trump Lectured Previous 
Ukraine President About Corruption, Too
{ } ~ A key witness called by Democrats to appear before the House Intelligence Committee testified last month that President Donald Trump had temporarily blocked U.S. aid to Ukraine in 2017... and expressed some similar concerns to those in 2019. Catherine Croft, a State Department official specializing in Ukraine, told a closed-door meeting that Trump, through the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), held up the first grant of military aid to the Ukrainian government of then-President Petro Poroshenko partly because of concerns about the country’s corruption and the president’s frustration that the U.S. was expected to pay for its defense. Another concern was how Russia would react to the first provision of lethal weapons — which President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama had denied to Ukraine despite ongoing Russian attacks. Croft testified that prior to the now-infamous hold on aid in the summer of 2019, there had been a hold in late 2017 for “a week or two” at the direction of OMB Director Mick Mulvaney, acting on behalf of President Trump. The main reason, she said, was concern about “the Russian reaction” — the same reason that scumbag/liar-nObama administration officials had been cautious about providing military aid. Eventually, President Trump provided the aid, particularly Javelin anti-tank missiles, which helped Ukraine push back the Russian advance. But he did so, she said, after lecturing President Poroshenko — to his face — about Ukraine’s corruption and inability to pay for its own defense: Croft later reiterated the president’s concerns that “Ukraine is corrupt, and that Europe should be stepping up to do more to provide security assistance to Ukraine.” Trump has voiced similar concerns about U.S. military aid to other countries — that American taxpayers bear the burden of their defense...
Republicans Fight Back –
4 Weapons They’re About To Use
by Cristina Laila
{ } ~ House Republicans on three committees leading the “impeachment inquiry” released 4 key pieces of evidence undermining Democrats’ arguments for impeachment ahead of this week’s public hearings... In a memorandum obtained by The Gateway Pundit sent to Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee, Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Committee on Foreign Affairs, the GOP countered all of the ‘evidence’ provided by the Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. “In the 49 days since Speaker liar-Pelosi’s announcement, Rep. scumbag-Adam Schiff” has been conducting the sham impeachment hearings from his “Capitol basement bunker” the GOP said, arguing that all the fact-finding is “unclassified” so the closed-door process and secrecy is “purely for information control.”  1. The July 25 call summary — the best evidence of the conversation — shows no conditionality or evidence of pressure.  2) Both President Zelensky and President Trump have publicly and repeatedly said there was no pressure to investigate the President’s political rivals.  3) The Ukrainian government was not aware that U.S. security assistance was delayed at the time of the July 25 phone call.  4) The United States provided security assistance to Ukraine and President Trump met with President Zelensky without Ukraine ever investigating President Trump‘s political rivals...
Islamic Jihad says not ready for ceasefire; 
PM: Israel will do what’s needed
{ } ~ Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to continue targeting Palestinian Islamic Jihad on Wednesday... as the terrorist group announced that it was far from ready to engage in ceasefire talks.  "We are not talking of mediation, it's not appropriate to talk about it,” A spokesperson for Palestinian Islamic Jihad said. “When we complete our response that we want to send, it will be possible to talk about calming things down."  Over 220 rockets have been fired at Israel by PIJ militants in the Gaza Strip in response to Israel's targeted killing of Islamic Jihad leader, Bahaa Abu al-Ata. Earlier in the day, there were reports in the Arab press that Israel had conveyed a message via the United Nations to Islamic Jihad that it was prepared to assassinate its leaders in Syria if the rocket fire did not immediately cease. During an address at the Knesset, Netanyahu argued with Arab MKs from the Joint List, who accused him of war crimes. “We will not tolerate attacks on our citizens,” Netanyahu said. “In the last year, we accumulated a mass of these attacks.” Al-Ata “was ready to carry out more and more terrorists attacks, including in these days. We thwarted him when we were not heading for an escalation, but we will do all that we need to defend our citizens,” the prime minister added. “We are not bent on escalation, but that we would respond to every attack against us, and respond very sharply. Islamic Jihad would do well to understand this right now, instead of when it will be too late. I believe that Islamic Jihad is starting to internalize this message. They understand that we will continue to strike them without mercy. They understand that Israel is very strong and that our will is very great,” Netanyahu said...   
The 4,006 Palestinians the 
Europeans Have Not Heard Of
by Bassam Tawil
{ } ~ As all eyes are turned on the latest tensions in the Gaza Strip, where Palestinian terror groups have been firing rockets at Israel in retaliation for the Israeli killing of Islamic Jihad commander Bahaa Abu al-Ata... the number of Palestinians killed in Syria since the civil war began there in 2011 has risen to 4,006. The plight of the Palestinians in Syria, however, is of no concern to Palestinian leaders in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, who continue to be obsessed with destroying Israel. The international community, including the United Nations and human rights organizations, are also clearly not interested in the suffering of Palestinians in Syria -- or in any other Arab country. The 4,006 Palestinians killed in Syria were not targeted by Israel; evidently that is reason enough for the international community and the UN to look the other way. The Europeans evidently think they have all the time in the world to worry about foodstuffs originating from Israeli suburbs, but no time at all even to express concern about the brutal deaths of more than 500 Palestinians a year in Syria over the past seven years. This week, instead of taking notice of the rising death toll of Palestinians in Syria, the European Court of Justice ruled that member states must oblige retailers to identify products made in Israeli settlements with special labels. The European court decision does not help the Palestinians in Syria in any way. These Palestinians do not give a damn whether or not the Europeans label settlement products. What they do give a damn about is staying alive -- a goal which they would appreciate the people of Europe would further by helping them to stay employed, rather than focusing on debates about packaging. What, for example, does the European court's decision do to highlight the case of three Palestinians who were tortured to death in October while being held in detention in a Syrian government prison? The three, identified as Said Mustafa Amarin, Ziad Lutfi Amarin and Fadi Fuad Al-Sotari, were arrested by the Syrian authorities several years ago. Their deaths bring to 611 the number of Palestinians killed as a result of torture in Syrian prisons in the past eight years, according to a recent report...
The Islamic Trojan Horse
By Mario Alexis Portella
{ } ~ Many in the West today are grappling as to how Islam has been able to get a foothold in our society. We know of Islamists’ present-day means to get government officials to capitulate to their whims through lobbying and the mainstream media... presenting themselves as victims of the same Western society that has helped them. But how have they been able to acquire such political leverage? Apparently, there has been a willful lack of circumspection or foresightedness. Back in the 1970s, the late archbishop Marcel Lefebvre had  said: “As long as Muslims are an insignificant minority in a Christian country, they can live on friendly terms, because they accept the laws and customs of the country that receives them. But as soon as they become numerous and organize, they become aggressive and try to impose their laws, which are hostile to Western civilization.” Protagonists such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar -- both supposed allies of the United States and the European Union -- have been able to forge or manipulate situations having politicians and the mainstream media to direct attention to military conflicts in the Middle East, such as Syria and Afghanistan, or by “exclusively” focusing on the Iranian regime as the principle source of terrorism. As Ayaan Hirsi Ali explained, because of the West’s obsession with terror, we have become blind to the broader threat of the dawa, Islamic proselytizing: the ideology behind the terror attacks -- and what drives numerous Muslims to Islamize us. In other words, by leading us to believe that the threat of Islam is only in far-off distant lands, Islamists have been able to conceal their ultimate weapons of Islamization: exploitation of  democracy and pluralism, immigration, and the multiplication of the progeny. Since its foundation, islam has always been transnational as it spread across the world when the nation-state and national identity were at best inchoate and more often nonexistent. This has impelled many Muslims, regardless of their views of democracy, to utilize the democratic instruments of pluralism and freedom of expression to insert themselves into society with the goal of propagating Islam at the expense of others. The most salient example has been the election of worthless-Ilhan Omar to the House of Representatives. Notwithstanding marrying her own brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, to get him a green card to the U.S., even before being sworn into Congress on a Quran, she successfully demanded that Congress reverse a 181-year ban on the wearing of any headgear -- in her case she was able to wear the hijab: a religious attire, when lawmakers cannot even display a cross -- on the floor of Congress. Like a Trojan horse, Islamists have been able to infiltrate, for example, the Western field of education, creating an environment of receptivity and understanding for the next generation of Americans to accept their sharia-based lifestyle. Saudi money has financed institutions alongside multitudes of other Islamic organizations across the world and within the United States 80 percent of 1,200 mosques operating in the United States were built after 2003. Qatar’s equal vision for America is being peddled through our children’s classrooms, targeting a pliable population and one with a long shelf life...
Judge Rules Against Merit-Based Immigration
Arnold Ahlert:  Remember scumbag/liar-nObamaCare? Remember the act that was passed on Christmas Eve without a single Republican vote? Remember when liar-Nancy Pelosi famously asserted Democrats had to pass it so Americans “find out what’s in it?” Remember what Americans “found” is that despite the former president’s promises that one could keep one’s health insurance if one liked it — more accurately known as the 2013 Lie of the Year — one would be required to purchase health insurance, or face a fairly substantial fine for failing to do so?

How times have changed, courtesy of U.S. District Judge Michael Simon, an scumbag/liar-nObama appointee. On Nov. 2 in Portland, Oregon, Simon issued a temporary restraining order blocking a Trump administration initiative that requires immigrants to prove they will have health insurance or can pay for medical care before they can get visas aimed at giving them permanent legal status. “Facing a likely risk of being separated from their family members and a delay in obtaining a visa to which family members would otherwise be entitled is irreparable harm,” Simon wrote.

Irreparable harm for whom? Trump invoked executive authority last month with regard to those requirements, as part of the administration’s efforts to transition to a merit-based immigrant system—as in one that would not further harm Americans. “The United States has a long history of welcoming immigrants who come lawfully in search of brighter futures. We must continue that tradition while also addressing the challenges facing our healthcare system, including protecting both it and the American taxpayer from the burdens of uncompensated care,” Trump stated in the proclamation. “Continuing to allow entry into the United States of certain immigrants who lack health insurance or the demonstrated ability to pay for their healthcare would be detrimental to these interests.”

In other words, those seeking permanent residency shouldn’t have immediate access to America’s welfare state. In a nation burdened by $23 trillion of national debt — driven in large part by welfare state mandates — such a requirement would seem to be a no-brainer. The administration made that clear when it noted that subsidized healthcare plans still available on scumbag/liar-nObamaCare exchanges would not qualify as insurance.

study by the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute (MPI) reveals why: Only 57% of U.S. immigrants had private health insurance in 2017, and America still welcomes 1.1 million legal immigrants to our nation on an annual basis.

It should be further explained that this order was not issued ex post facto. It would have applied to immigrants living abroad, not those already here. Moreover, refugees, asylum-seekers, and children would have remained  unaffected.

None of it mattered to Judge Simon. The temporary restraining order blocks the policy’s implementation for 28 days, and another hearing on the matter is scheduled for Nov. 22.

Unsurprisingly, the move was celebrated by those who apparently believe self-sufficiency should not be an integral part of immigration reform. “Countless thousands across the country can breathe a sigh of relief today because the court recognized the urgent and irreparable harm that would have been inflicted” (without the hold), Jesse Bless, director of federal litigation at the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said in a statement.

Justice Action Center senior attorney Esther Sung, who litigated the case brought by seven U.S. citizens and a nonprofit organization, echoed those sentiments. “We’re very grateful that the court recognized the need to block the health care ban immediately,” she stated. “The ban would separate families and cut two-thirds of green-card-based immigration starting tonight, were the ban not stopped.”

That two-out-of-three immigrants seeking green cards can’t afford their own health insurance is a testament to the agenda of those who believe America should abiding the standards of immigrants, instead of immigrants abiding the standards of America.

Unsurprisingly, Simon is only the latest scumbag/liar-nObama-appointed federal jurist on a self-aggrandizing mission to undermine this administration’s effort to end the nation’s immigration crisis. On a single day last September 27, three scumbag/liar-nObama-appointed judges also did their best to thwart the administration’s efforts. In California, Judge Dolly Gee of the Federal District Court in Los Angeles issued a preliminary ruling banning the administration’s attempt to detain migrant families for longer than 20 days; U.S. District Court Judge Andre Birrote Jr. issued a permanent injunction blocking Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from relying solely on the databases when issuing detainers; and Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a nationwide preliminary injunction barring the administration from using a fast-track deportation process aimed at illegals who illegally entered the nation in the last two years.

And last Tuesday, Judge John Kronstadt of the United States District Court in Los Angeles — yet another scumbag/liar-nObama appointee — ruled that America must provide mental-health services to families “traumatized” by being separated at the border. “This is truly groundbreaking,” said dean of the University of California Berkeley School of Law, Erwin Chemerinsky.

It’s also quite telling. Kronstadt was appointed in 2011 — meaning he sat mute when the scumbag/liar-nObama administration was separating families at the border.

Thus, some separations are more equal — and much more political — than others. Especially when the media make a big deal out of them on one hand and, on the other, either completely ignore the issue, insist the scumbag/liar-nObama administration was more “virtuous” because they didn’t do it as often — or simply [lie] about who was housing children in cages.

All of these judicial rulings are part of the Left’s coordinated effort to maintain a globalist status quo aimed at reducing the nation-state to irrelevancy. Meanwhile, keep in mind last week’s cartel-driven massacre of a Mormon family, including eight-month-old twins — along with the arrest of a suspect in possession of two bound hostages, four semiautomatic rifles, ammunition and a bullet-proofed SUV. That followed closely on the heels of a Mexican military defeat at the hands of a drug cartel, as well as last Wednesday’s brazen daylight assassination of a cop involved in that operation. Americans must deal with drug overdoses that now kill more Americans per year than car accidents, over-taxed school systems and healthcare facilities, wholly unnecessary crimes, and the ongoing bipartisan attempts by our elites to expand the foreign-born workforce at the expense of American workers.

Above all, Americans must abide the reality that Democrats are working hard to make sure the definition of merit-based immigration is bastardized to the point of absurdity. And in a testament to that effort, Elizabeth dinky/liar-Warren says she’s “open to suspending deportations.” And commie-Bernie Sanders promises that his immigration “reform” plan will included the admittance of “at least 50,000” immigrants “displaced by climate change.” And that’s just the start. commie-Sanders’s campaign website states, “By 2050, an estimated 200 million people will be displaced by climate change. Bernie will lead the international community in combating this crisis and America will do its part to welcome those who are forced from their homes by climate change.”

No doubt Democrats will demand that everyone of them will be eligible for subsidized healthcare — and that they’ll find a judge to abet their ambitions.

“Fundamental transformation” demands nothing less.
