WHO IS MORE CORRUPT? DEMOCRAT SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN, DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT OBAMA, DEMOCRAT HILLARY CLINTON OR DEMOCRAT JOE BIDEN?

Corruption blinders of the media and other Democrats

Most journalists and Democrats didn’t express any concerns when:
  • VP Biden threatened (promised) Ukraine that he would cut off a billion dollars in aid to them if they didn't fire the prosecutor investigating a company his son was involved with.
  • Hunter Biden got paid $50,000 a month as a board member of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company when he had no expertise on the product of the company.
  • Obama promised the very dangerous Russia and Putin that he would be flexible if he was reelected (somehow no one at FBI or elsewhere was ever concerned that Russia may have tried to influence the 2012 election to elect the flexible president.)
  • Hillary, Obama and many others violated the nation's security laws by using her non-government computer.
  • Obama gave kickbacks to union supporters when he violated the nation's bankruptcy law with the bailout of GM.
  • Obama used taxpayer dollars to reward political supporters like at Solyndra.
  • Hillary, through her family and foundation, got huge amounts of speech money and donations from foreign countries. Russia, for example, got Uranium for their generosity. (If there is any doubt about whether they were kickbacks, that should have disappeared when the donations dried up and speech fees dropped or dried up when she no longer could return favors)
  • Obama shipped over $1 billion in taxpayer money in unmarked bills, to Iran tyrants, who still pledge death to America, to get a deal.
  • Obama dictatorially stopped a years’ long investigation into a billion dollar a year drug running ring by terrorists to appease Iranian tyrants because he was more concerned about his legacy than the safety, health and lives of the American people. 
  • Hillary and the DNC paying over $10 billion to buy a fake dossier from a foreign national to destroy Trump. It appears they didn't think they could beat him based on the truth or their policy proposals. 
  • Obama and his administration, including the FBI, Justice Department, the intelligence agencies and the State Department, using the fake dossier as a source for FISA warrants and to infiltrate the Trump campaign with informants. (they obviously didn't believe their record or policies would win the votes). Instead of the media and other Democrats caring about this pure corruption they have participated in perpetuating the lies about Russian collusion for over three years.
  • The Obama Administration, at the Justice Department, EPA and CFPB using taxpayer money for political purposes and political supporters by creating slush funds from money confiscated from businesses that they pretended would go to victims. 
If the media and Democrats want to investigate anything, how about a possible corrupt payback from Netflix to Obama? Obama gave the very wealthy Netlfix, Google and others huge financial benefits with net neutrality and Netflix gave the Obama's a huge contract even though they had no video production expertise or experience. It is similar to paying Biden's son huge amounts of money with no expertise. 
But now when President Trump may have said something to a foreign leader about investigating corruption by Biden's son, that is supposed to be an impeachable offense. Shouldn't a President want political corruption by politicians to be investigated? Shouldn't the media and other Democrats be more concerned about the corruption itself than the phone call?
From this story, it appears that the media and other Democrats believe that every phone call that Trump makes to a foreign leader should become public knowledge if any bureaucrat makes a whistle blower report when they disagree with something the president does. That would certainly be cumbersome, and foreign leaders would no longer want to have discussions if every discussion could be made public. 
Elizabeth Warren says she wants to get rid of corruption but not once have I heard her complain about the massive corruption during the Obama years or at her precious CFPB, so she really doesn't care. 
Isn't it odd that no bureaucrats seemed to care about the corruption of Obama/Biden?  It shows why we need to drain the swamp.

SERVANT OF RED CHINA SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN DECLARES SHE TAUGHT BIDEN HOW TO SUCK OFF BRIBES THROUGH FAMILY MEMBERS

Joe Biden loses his lead, just in time for Iowa

Joe Biden's been losing momentum for a while, and in early-state Iowa, his numbers finally crossed with second-place contender, Elizabeth Warren.
According to the Des Moines Register:
Elizabeth Warren has surged in Iowa, narrowly overtaking Joe Biden and distancing herself from fellow progressive Bernie Sanders, the latest Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll shows.  
Warren, the U.S. senator from Massachusetts, now holds a 2-percentage-point lead, with 22% of likely Democratic caucusgoers saying she is their first choice for president. It is the first time she has led in the Register’s poll. 
Former Vice President Biden, who had led each of the Register’s three previous 2020 cycle polls, follows her at 20%. Sanders, the U.S. senator from Vermont, has fallen to third place with 11%.  
No other candidate reaches double digits. 
“This is the first major shakeup” in what had been a fairly steady race, said J. Ann Selzer, president of Selzer & Co., which conducted the poll. “It’s the first time we’ve had someone other than Joe Biden at the top of the leader board.” 
The Register's poll was taken from Sept. 14-18, reflecting the views of 602 likely Democratic caucus-goers who are the key people to watch. Fox News has more here.
Not mentioned in the report, its beginning followed by one day the third debate of the Democrats, which featured Biden flailing around and having some problems with his teeth, Warren looking pretty good by default for not being asked that many questions, Bernie Sanders shouting himself hoarse like an angry old man at the television set, Harris being the same old Harris (which is why she remains stuck at that 6% mark) and Buttigieg annoying people with his sanctimony. Julian Castro, as we noted, collapsed to a miserable 1%, with then-non-participant Tulsi Gabbard commanding twice his lead (the Democrats punished her for taking out Harris in debate two by keeping her out). And not only did Castro drop to the bottom of he barrel, his negatives skyrocketed threefold to 36%, and that's among lefties alone.
Many pundits did think Warren won the debate, which would probably explain the bulk of the crossover, given that the Register points out that most likely Democratic caucus goers are still kind of mushy on who they support for president, with many switching their orientation to who can beat Trump rather than who has the best platform from their lefty points of view. If Warren came off just not looking like a fool and the others did, it would explain a shift to Warren.
But something else started wafting around that gets my attention - emerging news about Joe Biden's corrupt pocket-lining and nepotistic cronyism via his troubled son, Hunter. 
On Sept. 19, one day after the Iowa poll was concluded, news broke from the Washington Post about the so-called whistleblower who was upset at President Trump's phone call about a then-unnamed foreign leader. A couple days later, it emerged that the disputed phone call was with the president of Ukraine, over Biden's son's suspicious business dealings, his ties to his dad, and his gigantic payday, something the Trump administration was apparently encouraging the Ukrainians to investigate.
These precise details didn't leak out exactly when the poll was done, but the New York Times, in its rundown of the matter, noted that the leaks were wafting around at least a week earlier. Could the politically engaged Iowa caucus-goers have heard them? It's kind of possible.  
Why would I think that matters? Because it was precisely news of this kind of collusion and corruption that shifted Donald Trump's poll numbers with Hillary Clinton's in the final days to the 2016 general election. It's my sense that then-FBI director James Comey's exoneration of Clinton, not his investigation itself, was what signaled to voters that some kind of fix was in, given the magnitude of Clinton's 'extremely careless' security violations, given that a Navy small fry got jailtime for a far less serious violation.
Now there's this news of Joe Biden coordinating with his kid Hunter over giant sums of money coming from Ukraine and Biden's yelling that Trump is the bad guy, same as Hillary yelled that Comey was the bad guy, yet the original sin remains the bigger story.
It may not be responsible for the entire voting crossover in Iowa as reported by the poll, but it's hard to not think this kind of raw corruption at a minimum might just keep the momentum moving downward for Biden and upward for Warren. It's a really appalling story of pocket-lining and corruption, and Warren, by contrast is running on a supposed anti-corruption platform, exactly the right weapon to use to take out old Joe at his vulnerable point.
I think a bridge has been crossed with this Biden scandal and now Warren is consolidating her lead. It certainly would explain why Biden was going crazy to a reporter in this Twitter video clip, telling the reporter what he's allowed to ask. Democrats are likely just as hungry for an end to the swamp life as Republicans are, though Republicans reached that Rubicon first in 2016. For that reason, it's well worth watching how Biden behaves in this Ukraine scandal, given that in all likelihood, it's the big dragon most likely to take him down.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has overtaken Joe Biden (D) in Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll released Saturday. It marks the first time the Massachusetts senator has led in the Register‘s poll.

Selzer & Co conducted the poll, surveying 602 likely caucusgoers September 14-18, 2019. It shows Warren topping the crowded Democrat field with 22 percent support, marking the “first time she has led in the Register’s poll,” as the Des Moines Register indicated.
Biden, who has largely remained the frontrunner as several national polls indicate, fell to second place with 20 percent support. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) followed in a distant third with 11 percent support. The margin of error is +/- four percent.
The Des Moines Register added that “no other candidate reaches double digits,” with Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) coming in fourth place with nine percent support, Sen. Kamala Harris  (D-CA) dropping to fifth place with six percent support, and Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) garnering three percent support each.
Four candidates – Beto O’Rourke (D), Tom Steyer (D),  Andrew Yang (D), and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)– garnered two percent. The remaining candidates saw one percent support or less.
Selzer & Co. president J. Ann Selzer called the results the “first major shakeup” in the Democrat primary race.
“It’s the first time we’ve had someone other than Joe Biden at the top of the leader board,” Selzer said, according to the Des Moines Register.
The poll also found Warren’s favorability at 75 percent, with Buttigieg right behind with 69 percent.
This follows a Focus on Rural America poll released Wednesday, showing Biden and Warren separating themselves from the rest of the Democrat field with 25 percent and 23 percent, respectively:

Is Dianne Feinstein out to kill off Kamala Harris's presidential bid?



Kamala Harris has always been known for her lean and hungry, pushy, grabby, ambition, which includes a willingness to sleep her way to the top to get what she wants. Her political start began as a social mountaineer with San Francisco's old-money Pacific Heights set dating from her 20s and then just moved onward and upward.
That's not sitting well with California's lizardy old-money senior Senator, Dianne Feinstein, who knows that establishment well.
And so, she's taking some action, as Fox News reports:

BLOG: BIDEN AND FEINSTEIN GO WAY BACK WITH THEIR RED CHINA FOR RAW CASH DEALS SIPHONED THROUGH HER HUSBAND AND HIS SON.
According to reports, Feinstein, the senior senator from the Golden State, will throw a fundraiser next month for Democratic 2020 presidential frontrunner Joe Biden -- and not for Harris, another White House contender whose poll numbers suggest she could probably use some high-profile help.
BLOG: WHAT FEINSTEIN MEANS IS THAT OL' BIDEN IS AS CORRUPT AS SHE IS ANY DAY! 
“My candidate would be Joe Biden,” Feinstein told CNBC back then. “I watched him as vice president. I’ve seen him operate. I’ve seen him perform and I think he brings a level of experience and seniority, which I think is really important.”
The early evening reception will be the first that Feinstein hosts for Biden in the 2020 election, CNBC reported. Her husband has already participated in several fundraising events for Biden, who campaigned for Feinstein in 2018, when she was re-elected by a landslide.
Oh, spare us. Feinstein knows as well as anyone that old Joe is addled and gaffe-tastic. This is more likely about putting Kamala back in her place.
Fox News speculated that this fundraiser among the fatcat donors might just have been payback for Harris's nasty first-debate attack all but accusing Biden of being a Bull Conner racist. Remember Harris's phony earnestness in: "That little girl was me"?
Sure, it's possible. But it's also been known for close to a year that Feinstein considers Harris a wretched parvenu who hasn't paid her dues.
Remember this?
“I’m a big fan of Sen. Harris, and I work with her. But she’s brand-new here, so it takes a little bit of time to get to know somebody,” Feinstein said of the junior senator, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Her press secretary told CNN that Feinstein later added that she certainly likes her California colleague, saying, “Oh, I love Kamala.”
Translation in a plummy accent: Do we know her?
The lagniappe of 'Oh, I love Kamala,' straight from The Sloane Ranger Handbook, is a nice touch.
Hard to get a better old-money passive-aggressive remark than that one. People are either known or unknown in Feinstein's rich circles and it's pretty obvious to Feinstein that Kamala doesn't cut it.
What's more, Feinstein is a 'get off my lawn, whippersnappers' non-ideological sort of small-c conservative, or, as Fox News put it, she pulls rank. Remember this?
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein pulled rank Friday when a group of kids tried to school her on climate change.
After the group sought her support for the Green New Deal, the 85-year-old senior senator from California let them know she wasn't about to be bossed around by a bunch of youngsters.

BLOG: THE OLD WHORE FEINSTEIN MADE A VAST FORTUNE SERVING CRIMINAL OPERATIONS LIKE PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC, CRIMINAL BANKSTERS WELLS FARGO AND BANK OF AMERICA AND THE FREAKING PARASITE TRIAL LAWYERS! 
“You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that,” Feinstein continued. “I’ve gotten elected, I just ran. I was elected by almost a million-vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So you know, maybe people should listen a little bit.
So just the fundraiser in Harris's home state of California was a shiv in the side to Kamala.
Why is that? 
Well, for one thing, the Democratic political set widely believes that to win the presidency, one must win California. Harris is from California, so that stacks things in her favor. 
Now Feinstein is marshalling money from California Biden's way? So that they give their money to him and feel 'donor fatigue' when Kamala comes calling?
The matter is compounded by the fact that the California Democratic campaign fatcats weren't impressed with Harris's performance in the third debate, as this CNBC report here indicates. Feinstein knows those people and may very well be egging them toward Biden, or at least piling on.
Here's another thing: Money from fatcats over little-people donations is Kamala's vulnerable spot. The queen of fake Twitter followers is also highly reliant on big dollar donors over the little guys, even as the New York Times tries to claim she's changing that. Well, maybe she is, but if she is, it would be in the infant stage and in any case, they're taking her word for it. More likely, she still relies on the big boys, because that's what she knows.
Which would mean that Feinstein's bid to separate Harris from that cash lifeline is like that of General Grant at Vicksburg, targeting Confederate supply lines. The California dinosaur strategizes.
The Feinstein fundraiser, which will channel and suction big money toward Biden, can't help but come at a cost to Harris. And Feinstein, right in the middle of the Pacific Heights crowd, is lobbing her cannon ball where the funds are richest and Kamala's ties are tightest.
It almost looks like a concerted chess move to checkmate the upstart. And given the evidence of Feinstein's antipathy toward Harris, one can't help but think it's all intentional.

The Electability Myth of Joe Biden



The leftstream media characterization of Joe Biden is that he is moderate, likable, and the most electable Democrat candidate.  He is affable Uncle Joe, the self-made lunchbox-toting common man of the people. 
In truth, he is none of the above.
Joe the Moderate
The "Biden as moderate" canard is getting increasingly hard to defend.  On the economy-, car-, and cow-killing $93-trillion Green New Deal, Biden was asked if it goes too far or is unrealistically promising too much.
He answered, "No, no it's not."
When previously asked if there would be any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in his administration, Biden answered, "No...we would make sure it's eliminated, and no more subsidies for either one of those, period."
Green New Deal?  Two thumbs up.  Fossil fuels?  Fracking and coal?  Kill them.  How he would eliminate them is one of history's great mysteries.  
Not content to destroy the economy, Biden has embraced the full gamut of abortion radicalism, to include flipping to oppose the Hyde Amendment, which forbids taxpayer funds to pay for most abortions.  This is the amendment that pro-abortion Democrats traditionally use to hide their radicalism, but Biden threw off even that fig leaf.
He said, "I can't justify leaving millions of women without the health care they need.  If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support [the amendment]."
The death-cult pro-abortion groups love Biden because they know he is fully committed to their hellish agenda. 
On border security, Biden's position is indistinguishable from those of the other radicals in the party.  His hand went up when asked if he is in favor of decriminalizing border security and providing taxpayer-funded health care to non-citizens. 
When asked about immigration detention centers, he answered, "Close them down!  By the way, we don't need them!"  Apparently, arguing that nations don't need borders exemplifies moderation.
Biden is a panderer with no core convictions.  Today's Democrat primary voters are radical, so Biden is a radical.  His positions are all but indistinguishable from those of socialists Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.  The entire Democrat primary has been an extremism arms race, and Biden regularly ups the ante.
Affable Uncle Joe
The media regularly compliment Biden for his sterling personality.  He's that crazy but lovable uncle we should all want to meet for a beer to swap stories about toiling for a workman's wage in the coal mines.  But, like most of Biden's biography, his entire persona is a lie.
Biden has always been a plagiarist and prevaricator.  Most of his lies have served his own biography.  These are among the creepiest of lies.  He is relentless in his biography-building.  He was the original valor thief, seeking to steal the best parts of other people's biographies to add to his own. 
The media gloss over these bold lies as gaffes.  But these lies speak to a serious character defect.  Biden is egocentric, delusional, and small-minded.  This lying addiction is not something new that can be explained away as a symptom of a failing mind.  It has been the central strand of Biden's political DNA since before dinosaurs wandered the earth.
So, okay, Biden may be a liar, but at least he's a nice guy.  Um...not so much. 
Would a nice guy tell black Americans that Republicans are going to "put you all back in chains"?
Would a first-rate personality say candidate Barack Obama was the first "mainstream African-American," an "articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," implying that other black Americans are lacking in all these qualities and that Obama was somehow a new invention?  This is one of the most outrageously racist comments I've seen in recent years.
Biden apologized to Obama, the one black American he wasn't really insulting.  He should have apologized to everyone else.  Pro-civility Biden is not very civil at all. 
There is also Biden's penchant for making women and girls uncomfortable, a habit that would be treated entirely different if he were a Republican.  Imagine if Vice President Mike Pence liked to bend over and sniff girls' hair, or grab a woman's arm and hold her essentially captive until he is done talking to her.
Somehow, I don't think the leftstream media would tell us it was just Mike being Mike, an endearing old-fashioned character trait.  Instead, they would have painted him as the worst kind of pedophile and misogynist.
So if Biden is not moderate and not likable, what is he basing his electability argument on?
Electable Biden, the Political Unicorn
Biden has pulled off his greatest trick yet in convincing a sizable chunk of the Democratic Party, particularly the power brokers, that he is the most electable Democrat.  He argues that he is an establishment moderate Democrat who has broad electoral appeal.  That's about as true as his recent war story.
He's also argued that his exemplary personality will exert a gravitational pull on voters in places like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.  But what will matter more to these voters: that Biden claims to have once been a coal miner or that he has promised to destroy coal miners?
Those voters who crossed over to vote for President Trump against a fake, condescending liberal politician who excites nobody are not going to cross back over to vote for...a fake, condescending liberal politician who excites nobody.  Many Republicans are pulling for Biden, not because they like him, but because they consider him the weakest candidate. 
Liberals will line up to vote for anyone not named Trump.  The real battle is for independents and former Democrats who crossed over in 2016.  Because of this, the most electable Democrat candidate is Tulsi Gabbard.  Biden is not going to win disaffected voters back, nor will he drive turnout among the identity politics–obsessed Democrat base. 
Gabbard, while liberal, has interesting things to say and embraces positions that could attract independents.  She doesn't emanate raw hatred and contempt toward the military, police, and America.  She acknowledges that we need borders and, while still an abortion radical, at least admits that some abortions should be restricted, which puts her way outside the Democrat mainstream. 
This is not an endorsement.  Gabbard is liberal and would be a poor choice.  But, unlike the rest of the Democrat candidates, she is prone to occasional bouts of sanity.  After both of the first two Democrat debates, she was among the most Googled candidates.  She is this year's Bernie Sanders, the candidate the Democrat establishment buried.  The Democrats did the Republicans a huge favor, because Gabbard would have been a tough out.  
Instead, the Democrats are on course to elect an avowed socialist or a close facsimile in Biden.  To loosely paraphrase advice given by Napoleon, never interfere with the Democrat establishment when it's in the process of destroying itself by nominating a boring, radical, unlikable liar like Lunchbox Joe.

Biden Accuses Trump of Abusing Power by Highlighting Son’s Ties to Ukraine

WASHINGTON, D.C. - JANUARY 20: Vice-President Joe Biden and sons Hunter Biden (L) and Beau Biden walk in the Inaugural Parade January 20, 2009 in Washington, DC.

Joe Biden fired back at President Donald Trump on Saturday for reportedly urging the Ukrainian government to probe into the shadowy ties his son has to one of its largest energy companies.

The former vice president, who for months has refused to discuss the business dealings of his youngest son, Hunter Biden, has undertaken with foreign governments, accused Trump of misusing his authority while attending the Polk County Steak Fry in Des Moines, Iowa.
“This appears to be an overwhelming abuse of power,” Biden told reporters at the event. “To get on the phone with a foreign leader who is looking for help from the United States and ask about me and imply things … this is outrageous.”
The former vice president’s comments come one day after the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump allegedly asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into Hunter Biden’s ties to Burisma Holdings.
The younger Biden joined the natural gas company’s board of directors in April 2014, where he was purportedly paid more $83,000 a month, despite having no prior background in the energy industry. At the same time, the then-vice president was the Obama administration’s point-man on Ukraine in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
More troubling is the fact that at the time of Hunter Biden’s appointment, Burisma was actively seeking to curry favor with western leaders, especially those in the U.S., after its business practices had come under scrutiny.
In April of 2014 — the same month that Hunter Biden joined Burisma’s board of directors — the government of Great Britain froze accounts belonging to the company’s founder, Mykola Zlochevsky, under suspicion of money laundering. Zlochevsky, a former Ukraininan minister of natural resources, would later be accused of corruption for using his official position to issue oil and gas licenses to companies under his control.
The controversy surrounding Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Zlochvesky only grew more muddy in 2016 when the then-vice president pressured Ukraine to fire the prosecutor general, Viktor Shokin, overseeing the investigation into the company. Officially, Biden claimed the threat to withhold more than $1 billion in U.S. to Ukraine came from President Barack Obama, who was worried Shokin had lost credibility with western leaders. Regardless of the reasoning, Shokin’s successor closed the investigation into Burisma and Zchlovesky, allowing the oligarch to return to the country after having fled in 2014.
Biden even bragged about the effectiveness of his threat during an event at the Council of Foreign Relations in 2018.
“I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,'” Biden said. “Well, son of a bitch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
The former vice president, however, did not mention the context of his or his son’s dealing with Ukraine while campaigning in Iowa on Saturday. Instead, Biden swiveled between attacking Trump for allegedly asking Ukrainian authorities to investigate the situation to denouncing the media for covering the story.
“You should be looking at Trump,” Biden told reporters when discussing the topic. “Everybody looked at this and everybody who’s looked at it said there’s nothing there. Ask the right question.”
As Peter Schweizer, a contributing editor at Breitbart News and the author of a book detailing Hunter Biden’s ties to both China and Ukraine, noted on Friday, the former vice president’s line of attack shows he wants “the issue to go away.”
“The Bidens are not disputing that he got paid all this money,” Schweizer told Breitbart News Tonight. “They’re not disputing that Hunter Biden had no background in this area. They just simply want the issue to go away, and what apparently President Trump did was have a conversation with the now-Ukrainian president, saying, ‘You need to investigate this. I think you need to investigate this,’ and that’s something we’ve been calling for for a long time.”

Democrats may grow to regret the Hunter Biden story

What do you do when unemployment is under 4% and the economy is doing well?  Well, the answer is that you desperately look for this or that to distract a population happily employed.
The latest Ukraine scandal is such a distraction but one that Democrats may grow to regret.  In other words, this may not be the story Mr. Biden wants to be explaining over the next few months.
The Hunter Biden story has been around for a while, as we see in this report from Politico:
Despite the outrage that greeted reports of the president's actions, Biden's immediate response was no simple matter. 
His son Hunter Biden's lucrative contracts with Ukraine — at the same time the vice president was in charge of U.S. policy toward the country raised — raised the prospect of fueling a narrative with downside political risk for Biden.
"This puts him on the ropes over having to talk about this," said Patrick Murray, a pollster with Monmouth University.  "He certainly doesn't want to talk about this, his family."
That's right!  There is no pretty way to explain how the son got lucrative contracts from the country that the father was overseeing.
It does not pass the smell test.  You cannot explain this as a coincidence.  The public will connect dots and figure it out.
What's the Ukraine story?  I don't know, but I'm convinced that President Trump builds a trap, and the Democrats fall right into it.


Corruption blinders of the media and other Democrats

Most journalists and Democrats didn’t express any concerns when:
  • VP Biden threatened (promised) Ukraine that he would cut off a billion dollars in aid to them if they didn't fire the prosecutor investigating a company his son was involved with.
  • Hunter Biden got paid $50,000 a month as a board member of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company when he had no expertise on the product of the company.
  • Obama promised the very dangerous Russia and Putin that he would be flexible if he was reelected (somehow no one at FBI or elsewhere was ever concerned that Russia may have tried to influence the 2012 election to elect the flexible president.)
  • Hillary, Obama and many others violated the nation's security laws by using her non-government computer.
  • Obama gave kickbacks to union supporters when he violated the nation's bankruptcy law with the bailout of GM.
  • Obama used taxpayer dollars to reward political supporters like at Solyndra.
  • Hillary, through her family and foundation, got huge amounts of speech money and donations from foreign countries. Russia, for example, got Uranium for their generosity. (If there is any doubt about whether they were kickbacks, that should have disappeared when the donations dried up and speech fees dropped or dried up when she no longer could return favors)
  • Obama shipped over $1 billion in taxpayer money in unmarked bills, to Iran tyrants, who still pledge death to America, to get a deal.
  • Obama dictatorially stopped a years’ long investigation into a billion dollar a year drug running ring by terrorists to appease Iranian tyrants because he was more concerned about his legacy than the safety, health and lives of the American people. 
  • Hillary and the DNC paying over $10 billion to buy a fake dossier from a foreign national to destroy Trump. It appears they didn't think they could beat him based on the truth or their policy proposals. 
  • Obama and his administration, including the FBI, Justice Department, the intelligence agencies and the State Department, using the fake dossier as a source for FISA warrants and to infiltrate the Trump campaign with informants. (they obviously didn't believe their record or policies would win the votes). Instead of the media and other Democrats caring about this pure corruption they have participated in perpetuating the lies about Russian collusion for over three years.
  • The Obama Administration, at the Justice Department, EPA and CFPB using taxpayer money for political purposes and political supporters by creating slush funds from money confiscated from businesses that they pretended would go to victims. 
If the media and Democrats want to investigate anything, how about a possible corrupt payback from Netflix to Obama? Obama gave the very wealthy Netlfix, Google and others huge financial benefits with net neutrality and Netflix gave the Obama's a huge contract even though they had no video production expertise or experience. It is similar to paying Biden's son huge amounts of money with no expertise. 
But now when President Trump may have said something to a foreign leader about investigating corruption by Biden's son, that is supposed to be an impeachable offense. Shouldn't a President want political corruption by politicians to be investigated? Shouldn't the media and other Democrats be more concerned about the corruption itself than the phone call?
From this story, it appears that the media and other Democrats believe that every phone call that Trump makes to a foreign leader should become public knowledge if any bureaucrat makes a whistle blower report when they disagree with something the president does. That would certainly be cumbersome, and foreign leaders would no longer want to have discussions if every discussion could be made public. 
Elizabeth Warren says she wants to get rid of corruption but not once have I heard her complain about the massive corruption during the Obama years or at her precious CFPB, so she really doesn't care. 
Isn't it odd that no bureaucrats seemed to care about the corruption of Obama/Biden?  It shows why we need to drain the swamp.
