Thanks AVFT

On Page B4 of the Oct. 10, 2019 AV Press, a picture that I was both surprised and happy to see.

It is a picture of the president of the Antelope Valley Free Thinkers awarding scholarships to two young women.

First congrats to the young women for being chosen and a big thank you to the AVFT group. I didn’t think you had it in you.

Secondly, long time readers will recall that Mr. Dionne and I have had differences of opinions about some things, mostly Christ Jesus. One of his fellow members, Guy Marsh, and I also trade opinions. I wish to publicly thank all members of the AVFT group for their willingness to give back to the community.

Thank you one and all.

Chew on that

Donald Trump is now trying to say that it was Ukraine that interfered in our elections not Russia. That may convince the Republicans, Conservatives and Trumpsters out there who seem to buy anything that this guy says even if it contradicts what he said 5 minutes earlier. But I can prove that Russia did it by using Trump’s own words against him. About 3 or 4 months ago or so he tweeted “I had nothing to do with Russia helping me win the election.” Now you “true believers” can chew on that awhile.

More diversion

This nation has been subjected to three Democrat witnesses who posses no first-hand knowledge of presidential wrong doing.

This Democrat disinformation campaign, typical of the KGB, is to engender public support for their coup and divert attention from their profiteering in Ukraine.

President Trump tweeted during the Yovanovitch testimony: “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.”

Yovanovitch, who is still on the payroll of the State Department in the foreign service office, was removed from her post.

Adam Schiff (D. Ca), Chairman of these proceedings, read on the first Sentence of the Presidents communication, leaving the rest unsaid. Unethical people perform as Mr. Schiff did, to promote their dishonest scheme. The balance of the Tweet indicates that the Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about Yovanovitch.

Representative Chris Stewart (R, Utah) asked Yovanovitch:

“Do you have any information regarding the president of the United States accepting any bribes?”

“No,” replied Yovanovitch.

“Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the United States has been involved with at all?”

“No,” answered Yovanovitch.

“You’ve been asked if the president…has the ability to ask his ambassadors to serve at will. I’m curious, do you think that’s the right policy?

“Yeah, I probably think it is,” responded Yovanovitch.

‘More forthrightness’

What’s it gonna take to satisfy an angry, desperate liberal machine that’s in a frenzy to remove a president they disagree with? Why wouldn’t they want to “Make America Great Again”?

First, Democratic House Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, addressing the committee on national television, reads a fabricated transcript of the President’s 7/25/19 conversation with the Ukraine president only to be proven a liar when the president unexpectedly releases the actual transcript.

Next, Marty Scepan writes a 7/25/19 letter claiming that was not the actual transcript but “It was a memo summarizing the phone call because it left out a lot of sentences and replaced them with... etc, etc”. Wow that’s breaking news, Marty...a bombshell. How come you’re the only one who knows this and more importantly, how would anyone know this given the president is sitting on the real transcript? In other words, what do you have to compare the phony transcript with? Does anyone believe Adam Schiff didn’t have the power to demand the “real transcript”?

Nice try, Marty. As you stated in your closing sentence, “We could use a little more forthrightness.”

Quid pro quo

‘Quid Pro Quo”, a Latin term that legally illustrates the return for “What for What.” “Something for something.” It is nothing more than the mutual consideration which passes between parties to a contract. (Blacks Law Dictionary).

There is nothing sinister about this term, is has been in effect from the beginning of time. However, in current jargon it has become an excuse for concealed behavior.

The president and his minions have been shouting the term since it was alleged  that the President was selling congressional monetary allotments to our allies for dirt on his political adversaries, in direct violation of the Constitution.

Article II section 4 indicates that “The President... shall be removed from office on impeachment for conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Quid Per Quo is Bribery, plain and simple, and our president has already admitted that he held up Congressional duties for personal aims.

Brewer’s thoughts

Liberal George Soros donated $830 million to his European university of Indoctrination and brain washing that claims it’s to support academic freedom. Wonder if it has any courses on Christianity or firearm safety?

Private kangaroo and the klowns in the house of representatives are showing their true colors. No one has given any testimony of anything illegal that Trump has done. The liberals have their panties in a wad over some white house staff ignoring their subpoenas. But nobody cared when the polyester pantsuit queen not only ignored their subpoenas for her emails but took hammers to her BlackBerrys deleted 30,000 plus emails from her private unapproved server.

The General Services Administration is prohibiting sleeping on the job. What about all those poor people in those congressional committees?

I see that governor nonsense wants to help Putin by stopping fracking.

Look at all the accusers of President Trump and not one suicide? Never happened around the Clinton’s.
