Bondi. Pam Bondi


She looks like a soccer mom, but yesterday she chopped down a major pillar of the Democrats’ impeachment case. The media have been saying over and over that the Bidens were investigated and cleared. But they never say who did the investigating and they never quote any documents or reports. That’s because no one has ever completed any investigation of the Bidens and Burisma. A few inquiries were started but were never heard from again.

Former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi made the White House’s case to the Senate on Monday afternoon that President Donald Trump had good reason to ask Ukraine to investigate the conflict of interest involving former Vice President Joe Biden; his son Hunter Biden; and the corrupt Ukraine gas company, Burisma.

Using clips of testimony from Democrats’ own witnesses, and reports from the mainstream media — including an ABC News interview with Hunter Biden — Bondi argued that Hunter Biden was paid handsomely for little reason other than that he was the vice president’s son. The company was under investigation at the time — and Vice President Biden later famously insisted the prosecutor be fired.

She also noted that Hunter Biden was involved in business with Chris Heinz, the stepson of then-Secretary of State John Kerry. Both were involved in Ukraine — and elsewhere — at a time when ending corruption was said to be the top priority of the United States and other western governments in dealing with Ukraine.

Bondi also noted that journalists had asked the Obama administration about the Bidens’ conflict of interest, and that American diplomats — including State Department official George Kent and former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who testified in the House impeachment inquiry — had raised concerns as well.

Nothing was done, she pointed out, and Hunter Biden only left the board of Burisma in April 2019, the same month that his father announced his campaign for the presidency, when under closer scrutiny than usual.

Bondi noted that the House Democrat impeachment managers had referred to “the Bidens and Burisma 400 times” in their presentation in an effort to pre-empt the argument that there was any legitimate basis, other than the president’s own political interest, for asking the Ukraine to investigate them.

“All we’re saying is that there was a basis to talk about this, to raise this issue, and that is enough,” Bondi explained.

What Hunter Biden was doing in Ukraine looks shady as hell. I won’t say that he is guilty of any crimes, but the facts that we can prove are such that I’ll be shocked if Hunter has a credible explanation for what he did that clears him of any wrongdoing. No wonder LTC Poppin Fresh Vindman freaked out when he heard Trump asking Ukraine to investigate Burisma and the Bidens. Vind(ictive)man is the guy who started all this Ukraine whoop-ti-doo when he told the whistleblower to blow his whistle.

So why did that porcine doofus single-handedly breathe life into the Democrats’ Shampeachment Monster?

He didn’t agree with Trump’s policies, and he was pissed because Trump didn’t defer to the Deep State.

The first time I heard Adam Schiff-Head explain how the transcript shows that Trump abused his presidential power by asking Ukraine to investigate I laughed. But as I laughed I had a deja vu feeling in the pit of my stomach. This isn’t my first rodeo.

Way back in 2008 when I was still a liberal Democrat there was a Democrat primary happening in South Carolina. Obama had won Iowa, and the media tried to declare that the race was over. But Hillary surprised the media when she came from behind to win New Hampshire. Obama panicked, and told his henchlings to play the race card. They played it on Bill Clinton.

Suddenly, Bill Clinton was a racist. William Jefferson Clinton was a racist. The guy they called “The first black President” was a racist. Now Billy Jeff is a lot of things, but a racist is not one of them. So I laughed at the absurd idea that Bill Clinton was a racist. At that time I was still a regular at Buffoon Juice. I was shocked to see people over there taking the accusation seriously. I was even more shocked to see Democrat party leaders repeating it. The media acted like the allegation was not ludicrous.

The race card swung SC into Obama’s camp. The majority of Democrats in SC are black. Obama got over 90% of the black vote in that state. I concluded that Barack Obama was morally unfit to be POTUS and I have actively opposed him ever since. My conclusion has been confirmed repeatedly in the past 12 years.

But it was the absurd allegation that the media treated as reasonable and credible I want to talk about. Russian collusion was an absurd idea. The media still believes it. There is no allegation against Donald Trump that is too absurd to be believed by the news media. Anything and everything he says and does justifies more investigations. It is bad enough that the Democrats are making these claims, but the media keeps taking them seriously.

OTOH, no one can ask questions about Hunter Biden unless they first prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he is guilty of specific crimes. We aren’t even allowed to discuss it because it’s all a Republican conspiracy theory. On the Trump side, an unsourced rumor is enough to trigger months of investigations, but on the Biden side, there is NOTHING that is sufficient to trigger an investigation. Hunter Biden could get pulled over with a couple dead hookers in the backseat, and the media would do their best to bury the story.

And the media keeps telling us this shit with a straight face. And they studiously ignore the corruption all around them. There seems to be a bipartisan agreement to not talk about corruption.

    Michelle Obama hit Hillary hard in 2008 with her comments about not being able to run her own home peacefully much less an entire country. I think Hills should have chased the Obamas to the convention floor and beat the snot out of their race and misogyny cards. Then returned to the Senate, and primary Obama in 2012. I’ll always wonder what kind of deal HRC made with the devil to drop out that year then nab a cushy gig like SoS, but not VP ?

  2. DandyTIger says:

    I’m coming to the conclusion there isn’t corruption in politics, but instead there’s a little bit of politics in corruption. Pure corruption. All the money in the world and almost no way of being caught when everyone is in on the game. Just play at a bit of politics, keep an illusion of two parties/sides, and rake in the winnings.

    • AniEm says:

      Oh yes. The Dems attempted to play master of the universe and were busted by Trump and his supporters. (RINOs weren’t much help.) Because they are going down, they want to take the whole country with them. This is one frightening and disgusting spectacle of entrenched corruption.

      • Constance says:

        Well so far Dems are out of power but none of them are facing legal consequences for their corrupt behavior so they aren’t going down. Brennen was on TV today implying that it was embarrassing to have a President who is under impeachment giving a ste of the usion address because the country is in grave condition due to Trumps mismanagement. I cant figure out why that asshole is still running around free.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Every time I re-watch The Godfather movies, I see the politicians are more dangerous than the mafia. In G2, the corrupt Senator was based on a real Nevada Senator during that era (forgot his real name) but he also reminded me of Harry Reid.

      • AniEm says:

        Good grief. I read a bio of Damon Runyan written by Breslin. Evidently the mayor of Atlantic City welcomed Al Capone with open arms. That’s NJ for you, but the political cancer is all over.

        • helenk3 says:

          My mom met Al Capone in NJ. It has always been a wide open city and gambling has been going on there long before the Casinos.

        • lateblum says:

          Hah! I was just thinking of Breslin the other day. The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight is still one of my favorite books – simply because of his irreverent style.

    Meanwhile, I found this interesting this morning,

  4. votermom says:

    I was going to comment on Anthony and Somebody’s thoughts on the Wuhan coronavirus.
    One of the things that lends some weight to the bioweapon accident conspiracy theory is the way China has been reacting to it.
    The quarantine of Wuhan and nearby cities is unprecedented and shows the Chinese govt is really scared.

    • Constance says:

      Probably if they did widespread antibody testing of the general public in China I bet you would find millions of people have had it and not even known it. It seems to cause deadly pneumonia in some people. I think the main problem is it is far more deadly in China than anywhere else probably because their health system doesn’t aggressively treat respiratory problems in all ages. So if it gets out of the country it’s going to be embarrassing that people in Europe and the USA don’t have such a high death rate as China. So far a lot more people have died of the flu and do every year.

    I didn’t get to see Bondi’s presentation yesterday. Well I got to see the 1st five to ten minutes. The grandkids wanted to go out for dinner last night and insisted I go with them ❤️ So hubby and I went out for dinner with my son and the girls. They said they wanted to me to go so they didn’t have to say goodbye so soon ❤️ AND they thought I deserved a night off from cooking ❤️

    Apparently they also wanted dessert and to play video games funded by yours truly 🤔 I’m sure that was just a side benefit of me tagging along 😉 Meh, I got to be grandma for a few hours instead of surrogate mom.

    Anyway, I followed comments online off and on. I bookmarked her presentation and hope to watch it today or tomorrow. The guy that followed her apparently did a good job too. I have to find his presentation, Bondi’s is everywhere his not so much. I did get to see Robert Ray and Alan Dershowitz. I thought Dershowitz was very informative and well done. Hubby wasn’t impressed, said it was too late to digest what Dersh was saying, thought they should have started with Dersh and finished with the more explosive Bondi.

    Hubby literally fell asleep, but he had worked 11.5 hours yesterday. Hopefully the senators were paying better attention because I thought Dershowitz’s appeal to their better angels so to speak and the historical significance of the moment was important.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      Every single Senator knows how he or she will vote. If there is any doubt in their minds it has nothing to do with guilt or innocence and everything to do with personal and/or political benefits. Mitt Romney wants to be relevant and popular.
      Murky Lisa and the one in Maine both live to stick shivs in the Right.

      The jury that matters is the one that is not-watching the trial from home.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Didn’t the GOP have a House and Senate majority during Obama’s last 6 years in office? Man, if anyone deserved to be impeached it would have been Barry. All those reasons are coming out now, but I do remember when he used the IRS to shut the Tea Party down and had great support from the Rinos who hated us anyhow. Obama was the protector of thy Gravy Train for all the politicians, fuckin’ UniParty.

      • Somebody says:

        Romney in my opinion only ran for the Senate to stay relevant. I presume to try and position himself to run for POTUS again in 2024. If that was his thinking he miscalculated. He could have also run purely for ego and specifically to be a thorn in DJT’s side and/or to belly up to the corruption trough. No matter his reasons, I don’t think he really cares whether or not he wins re-election in 2024. I don’t think he cares being a small fish in the big senate pond. So how he votes is anybody’s guess. It depends on how much control McConnell exerts.

        Lisa Murkowski can ill afford to alienate Trump voters in Alaska, she barely won last time around (actually lost the primary and ran as a write in). Collins is a dem in republican clothing, but she too can ill afford to alienate conservative Trump voters in Maine. Maine isn’t as red as Alaska, but outside of Portland it is. The percentage of republicans she will alienate by screwing POTUS exceeds the number of democrat votes she’ll gain.

        The ones I’m more curious about are the 4 retiring R senators with nothing to lose vote wise and possibly a lot to gain with lobbying jobs and/or book deals.

        • helenk3 says:

          Just read where romney’s support among the GOP and independents in Utah has dropped a whole lot.Do not think he will be on the stage after 2024

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          The RINO caucus isn’t what it was four years ago. Trump didn’t destroy the country and the economy is booming. All the fears whipped up the NeverTrumpers proved to be baseless. They may not love Trump, but they don’t hate him like they used to.

          I’m referring to RINOs who didn’t get cushy jobs where they get paid to hate Trump.

          The worst of the Trump haters in Congress are gone. Ryan, McCain, Flake. – all gone, Even when he hates you Mitt Romney is a squish. So is Rubio.

        • elliesmom says:

          Romney is in a group of politicians from both side of the aisle who suffer from chronic paternalism. While a lot of politicians try to convince you they know better than you do what’s good for you so they can rob you blind, there are some who really do believe voters need to be cared for like children. I’m not saying Romney isn’t corrupt. Just that he’s attitude of “I know what you need even if you don’t” permeates everything he says and does. I’m sure he thought Trump needed him to be successful, and he’s pissed off Trump didn’t agree with him.

          I have a lot of friends who would say to me. “As a teacher, don’t you think it’s your responsibility to ‘fill in something a parent should do’?” It startled them because I’d respond they had competent parents, and it was only my job to teach them science. Whenever I say I’d like schools to be under local control, my liberal friends insist parents are too stupid for that in some place other than where my friends live. Romney got elected governor in MA because his attitude is the attitude of most voters in the state. He couldn’t get re-elected when they realized he thought he knew better than they did what they needed.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I was the parent who went to the teachers and said “tell me how I can help you help my child”. The response was usually, I need a Room Mother. Done. 🙂

        • Constance says:

          I think Romney hope to be appointed President by the GOPe when Trump is run out of town. Not sure how that would happen.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Just remember, if it’s worth watching, the internet is forever, there’s always video so we don’t have to stop our lives anymore. 😀

    The media always behave like jackals and ghouls whenever someone famous dies, but I just watched a reporter interviewing a sobbing man whose wife and daughter were in the chopper with Kobe.

    These are our moral and intellectual betters. The people who sneer and jeer at us.

    • Mothy67 says:

    • Constance says:

      I’m I the only one who remembers that Kobe Bryant raped a young woman? He supposedly threw a 19 year old hotel employee over a chair and raped her dog style. So when did he get his sainthood?

      • Mothy67 says:

        I do. He made a vague sort of apology. I raped her but I didn’t rape her. He wasn’t tried and there was a settlement. I think the WPost writer should have refrained from bringing it up the day of the crash. Seems in the #MeToo era there would be a discussion, but it won’t happen.

  9. Mothy67 says:

    I got a text from the CDC. Did everyone else. No need to worry about coronavirus.

    • Mothy67 says:

      Oops it was just a news text quoting CDC.

    • elliesmom says:

      Did you end up on their list for some reason? I had Legionnaires’ in the early 90s, and every year they check to see if I’m still alive. I get emails from them with “points of interest” every once in awhile. I asked them to contact me by email since every time they called and asked the person who answered if I was alive and could still be reached at this number, it upset my family. I didn’t get anything about the coronavirus yet, but I will be surprised if I don’t at some point. I get a flu shot reminder from them every year. 🙂

      Personally, I’ve run into enough doctors and teachers who have screwed things up that I’m in the ‘trust yet verify’ camp. For the rest of it, you can see the data and feel the effects. Is my temperature comfortable? Good job, air conditioner! Did the cough syrup stop my cough? Its job is done. Did my food cook? Microwave is ok.

      • helenk3 says:

        remember when doctors prescribed “delutin” not sure about the correct pronuounation for morning sickness when pregnant, then years later found out it caused cancer in the children as they grew up? I remember because I took it and my daughter did get cancer when she was an adult. It was caught in time so she is ok.

        • Cisco says:

          Racking my brain but I can’t remember the name of the drug also prescribed for pregnant mothers.
          Caused children to be born with deformed or missing limbs.
          Around late 60’s early 70’s?

        • lateblum says:

          I was prescribed a drug (DES) to help sustain pregnancy in the earliest stages. The instant I suspected I was pregnant w dd#1 (less than a week after conception) I stopped taking the drug. Later, this drug was thought to cause cancer -possibly breast cancer possibly thyroid cancer. Dd#1 hasn’t developed cancer, but has had some pretty serious issues with growths in her breasts. Since she was 17 she’s had multiple surgeries and biopsies. So far, so good.
          I’ve questioned drugs and doctors since I was pretty young, despite coming from a family of medical people. It makes my family of origin nutz.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Before Trump came down that escalator 2015, I was a hardcore Scott Walker/Ted Cruz supporter. 2016 had the best, any party, candidate field in my lifetime. Trump changed all that, he wasn’t a politician and I had nothing to lose after Obama. I hope after Trump’s re-election this fall, the cream will once again rise to the top. The Dems got nothing, now or then either.

        I loved Mollie’s qualifier that she’s the “mother of young children”. I can tell you that one of my kids was a “prevaricator extraordinaire” from the age of 3. I developed the ability to suss out lies from over a mile away. That is yet another reason I #WalkedAway from the Dems in 2008. I had to have been in denial of the danger they posed up to then. Schiff triggers an almost PTSD reaction in me whenever he speaks. Because, like my son when he was young, I know there’s nothing that comes out of his mouth that can be believed.
        It is a painful reaction to that man. I want to wash his mouth out with a bar of very strong soap whenever I see him.
        It took me years and years to break my son of his ugly habit of telling lies. Now, when I hear him talking to Calamity about telling lies, I smile in my heart.
