U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO: DEMOCRATS RUN A ”KANGAROO COURT”

October 22, 2019

Newsmax on October 20, 2019 reported on a TV-interview by Mike Pompeo on the unconstitutional impeachment proceedings in Congress. Excerpts below:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo…accused House Intelligence head Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., of running a “kangaroo court” in the chamber’s impeachment inquiry.

[the process] has been unfair to the n-th degree,” he said, adding: “We’re not able to protect the State Department… the United States of America…. Adam Schiff ought to be embarrassed by the kangaroo court he’s running.”

Pompeo also pushed back on charges of low morale among his foreign service team.

“I see these stories about morale being low,” he said. “I see things precisely the opposite. I see motivated officers. I’ve watched them perform in Syria this week, perform in difficult situations during my year and a half as Secretary of State. I’m incredibly proud of the work they’ve done and I will always defend them when it’s appropriate.”

Comment: The desperate Democrats have since at least 2015 been attempting to undo the result of the U.S. 2016 election. Multiple investigations of Democrats in the American bureaucracy are ongoing and could result in indictments of possible suspects. The ”kangaroo court” is unfair and illegitimate.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS: CENSURE RESOLUTION AGAINST ADAM SCHIFF

October 9, 2019

Washington Times on October 2, 2019, reported that GOP House Minority Leader had signed a resolution to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. Excerpts below:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on October 2, 2019, that he had signed a resolution to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff.

“Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years. Now he is so desperate to damage the president he literally made up a false version of a phone call,” Mr. McCarthy, a California Republican, said in a tweet.

The measure to censure Mr. Schiff, a California Democrat, was introduced by last week by Rep. Andy Biggs, the incoming chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.

Mr. Biggs, an Arizona Republican, introduced the measure after Mr. Schiff misrepresented the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky…

Mr. Trump did not ask Mr. Zelensky to make up dirt on his political rival, according to a transcript of the phone call released last week by the White House.

The measure alleges Mr. Schiff “misled the American people” and made “a mockery of the impeachment process” with “egregiously false and fabricated retelling.”

Mr. Biggs said members of the intelligence committee have lost faith in the chairman’s ability to lead the panel.

Earlier in the day, Mr. Trump called Mr. Schiff “sick” and said the congressman should resign over misrepresenting the phone conversation.

FIGHT FOR FREEDOM. STAND WITH HONGKONG

October 7, 2019

It could be Hongkong today and the world tomorrow.

freedomhongkong.org is an initiative by Hongkong freedom fighters to launch various advertisment campaigns in support of the Hongkong freedom struggle starting from the 2019 G20 Osaka summit in June.

The demands of Freedom Hongkong are:

1. Complete withdrawal of the extradition bill;
2. Retraction of the characterisation of any anti-extradition protest as a riot;
3. Amnesty of all protesters in relation to the anti-extradition protests;
4. Establishment of an independent commission of inquiry to inquire into alleged police brutality; and
5. Immediate implementation of dual universal suffrage for Legislative Council and Chief Executive elections.

These are modest demands in light of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) tearing apart of Hongkong.

In spite of the existing treaty Beijing is de facto running the city. CCP has for years been infiltrating the political and business sectors of Hongkong. This and other forms of subversion have undermined institutions and eroded Hongkonger’s freedom.

ARKANSAS GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE PRAISES TRUMP’S ECONOMIC POLICIES

October 5, 2019

Newsmax on October 5, 2019, called President Donald Trump a true champion of the middle class. Excerpts below:

“Remarkably, median household income has increased by more than $4,000 since Trump’s inauguration, meaning that the president’s pro-growth policies managed to grow the income of middle America by 6.8 percent in less than three years,” the former governor writes.

Huckabee touts Trump’s passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which the governor describes as his “most high-profile economic policy accomplishment,” and claims it added “an average of an extra $5,500” to the worker’s bank account.

“Equally important, however, have been his less-noticed successes, such as slashing the burdensome and unnecessary federal regulations that proliferated under Obama and stifled entrepreneurialism in this country,” he writes.

“The future of the great American middle class is in our hands.

“We simply can’t afford to miss out on the opportunity for four more years of progress in the strong and growing Trump economy.”

TRUMP CAMPAIGN ACCUSES DEMOCRATS OF STAGING A ’COUP’

October 4, 2019

Fox News on October 2, 2019, reported that Trump’s 2020 campaign had launched a new ad accusing Democrats of staging a ’coup’. Excerpts below:

President Trump’s 2020 campaign launched a new ad on October 2, 2019, that takes on Democrats’ impeachment efforts, accusing them of staging a “coup” to oust the president.

It addresses the whistleblower complaint over Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, featuring a clip of Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., calling it “based on hearsay.” It also focuses on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who discussed the complaint while using language he claimed was “parody.”

On October 3, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., added his name to a resolution calling for Schiff to be censured. McCarthy is now the most high-profile Republican to sign on to the resolution that was introduced last Friday by Rep. Andy Biggs, the Arizona Republican who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

“Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years,” McCarthy said in a tweet. “Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call. Enough is enough.”

“It’s nothing short of a coup and it must be stopped,” it closes, over images of Pelosi and Trump’s potential 2020 opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.

The spot is part of an $8 million ad buy, which the campaign previously announced, in addition to a separate Republican National Committee $2 million ad buy with different spots.

COUNTER-IMPEACHMENT CAMPAIGN BY THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE (RNC)

October 1, 2019

Fox News on September 30, 2019, published an article on a RNC counter-impeachment campaign targeting House Democrats. Excerpts below:

The Republican National Committee launched a national counter-impeachment campaign called “Stop the Madness” on [September 30, 2019], targeting House Democrats and vowing to cause “chaos” in response to the formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

“Democrats promised to reach across the aisle and work with President Trump and Republicans to serve the American people, but instead are now pushing their hyper-partisan impeachment agenda,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News on Monday. “Enough is enough; Americans are sick and tired of these witch hunts.”

She added: “We are going to hold Democrats accountable for their ridiculous charade and remind voters that their Democrat representative turned their back on them.”

As part of their aggressive impeachment response, the RNC on [September 30, 2019] launched a new website, stopthemadness.gop, with officials saying it will be used to target House Democrats for their “extreme actions.”

The site is slated to highlight dozens of Democrats in favor of impeachment in Trump-won districts, as well as states with upcoming key Senate and gubernatorial races.

In addition to the website launch, the RNC has committed to a $2 million ad buy on both TV and digital platforms, including on Facebook, Google, Youtube, Spotify and Pandora. Much of the focus will be in target congressional districts like Atlanta, Ga.; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Chicago, Ill.; Charleston, S.C.; Richmond, Va.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas and more.

The RNC will also engage in an aggressive rapid response effort, led by RNC Rapid Response Director Steve Guest, including email blasts and response in real-time to the latest events.
