    “Ambassador Yovanovitch, as we sit here testifying the president is attacking you on Twitter, and I’d like to give you the chance to respond,” Schiff said during the hearing, reading off Trump’s recent tweets.
    Trump tweeted in part:
    “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors…..They call it “serving at the pleasure of the President.” The U.S. now has a very strong and powerful foreign policy, much different than proceeding administrations. It is called, quite simply, America First! With all of that, however, I have done FAR more for Ukraine than O.”

    For a known perjurer, the truth could be intimidating, I suppose.

    Unbelievable.  What a sideshow

    Bruce!
    There’s an article in the Globe and Mail that I thought was going to be critical of Don. Instead it was a scathing indictment of Ron MacLean, and how he has dealt o fatal blow to our beloved National Sport. He also knows WHY Ron did what he did, so he follows the money.

    There have been thousands upon thousands of tweets showing support for Don, who love him . That’s Canadian silent majority support.
    Even the usually reticent Bobby Orr came to his support, knowing that Don has never been a racist, and he’s clearly disgusted by what has been done.

    Don Cherry’s departure from Hockey Night In Canada has left a bad taste in his fans’ mouths. There have been expressions of outrage on social media concerning Cherry’s firing, and now there is even a petition to bring Don Cherry back to Hockey Night In Canada and Coach’s Corner.
    The change.org petition, started by news publication Western Standard, aims to get Cherry back on the air.
    “Don Cherry is a Canadian icon and a symbol of the working class,” the petition states. “He may be politically incorrect, and may not have been as careful as he should have in his remarks, but his offence does not warrant firing.”
    The petition urges CBC and Sportsnet not to “cave into a mob of liberals and twitter activists,” and asks that Cherry be immediately rehired.

    Of course I signed the petition.

    Iv e already signed it. I also wrote to Ron saying I’ve lost all respect for him: goodbye.
    It restores my pride in being Canadian, and that we’re not a bunch of reactionary sheep with our heads shoved up the media.

    Trump Attacks Former US Ambassador to Ukraine as She Testifies

    “as she testifies” is the key phrase here.  She would not have known about the tweet until  after testifying had Schiff not told her.  It was actually Shifty who intimidated the witness and he should be held accountable.  LOL, like that’ll ever happen.

    Still a sideshow

    Iv e seen with my own eyes letters he wrote to Zuckerber g telling him what to do and Mark complied. I did a search of where Schiff gets his money from and the majority comes from Disney. That s all I needed to know.

    Impeachment inquiry schedule for 11/19/19:

    Tuesday AM: Lt. Col Alexander Vindman and Jennifer Williams

    Vindman is the National Security Council’s top Ukraine expert and a decorated Army veteran. He directly listened into the July call. During the closed-door hearings, he testified that acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney “coordinated” a plan to condition a White House meeting for Zelensky on an investigation into the Bidens.

    Williams is an aide to Vice President Pence. She also listened into the July call, which she said was “unusual” and “shed some light on possible other motivations behind a security assistance hold.”

    Tuesday PM: Kurt Volker and Tim Morrison

    Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, discussed Rudy Giuliani’s involvement with Ukraine during his closed-door testimony.

    Morrison is the National Security Council’s former Russia and Europe director, who said he did not find the July call inappropriate, but confirmed other key instances at the heart of the impeachment inquiry in his closed-door testimony.

    I assume you’re following this? Emperor Xi is worse than Kim Jung-un. It’s a lot more important than the side show impeachment circus.

    The imbecilic  Schiff show still goes on while, with witness after witness exonerating the greatest president ever, real world events call for action.

    Asshole Xi is going to take over a free country (that would be Hong Kong) while the world watches and does nothing and next on his list is Taiwan.  Wake up!

    Chins is a fascist state and needs to be stopped.

    Schiff and the Dems are a worldwide laughing stock…keep it up, OK?

    Or drop the nonsense and take care of business.  Henry Kissinger just said that the conflict with China will be worse than the World Wars that destroyed Europe.

    Kissinger issued the dire warning at an event hosted by the National Committee on US China Relations in New York last week.
    “We are in a difficult period now. I am confident the leaders on both sides will realize the future of the world depends on the two sides working out solutions and managing the inevitable difficulties.”

    It’s looking like that could be true ‘re Schiff and the far left DEMS. My friends and family live all across Europe Asia and the UK and they’re derisive of them. I should qualify that by mentioning that none of them are huge fans of the U S.

    Major Democrat supporter/finacier George Soros

    George Soros cancelled a proposed “humanitarian visit” to the Philippines after President Duterte warned him “there is a bounty on your head in these islands.“

    Soros is a strong candidate for south-east Asia’s most unpopular man after being widely blamed for crashing the Thai and Malaysian economies in 1997 and sparking the Asian financial crisis through ruthless currency speculation.

    The Philippine House of Representatives approved a proposal last week to reinstate the death penalty, and the president took the opportunity to fire a warning at George Soros: “There is a special place in hell for you, idiot. Set one foot in this country and my duty is to make you go straight there.”

    Soros is connected to almost every Schiff  ‘witness’.

    It is frankly stunning that the Democrats are building an impeachment case off of an *interpretation* of a call from someone who has never met POTUS, never talked to POTUS, and who’s interpretation is directly disputed by multiple others who have.

    Stunning.

    And laughable

    Justin reversed Canada’s policy today siding with Palestinian rights to sovereignty, the first time in 14 consecutive votes since 2006, which has angered several powerful nations.
    It’s been Star Wars vs The Flintstones since the beginning. Having witnessed how they live it’s about time.

    The Trump people are placing pressure on him to destroy Bears Ears, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monuments in an effort to cave to big oil, and while he’s been relatively quiet on this issue judging from what he does when he comes up here with not a thought to destroying what’s left of our boreal and rain forests and endangered species and violating our own first nation’s sacred lands the odds are he’ll rip the skin off the earth to the tune of millions of acres of pristine refuge and dismiss the protests of American First Nations over destroying their sacred burial grounds and traditional sites.

    Any comments Bruce or anyone?
