I did a double take at this freeze frame of Adam Schiff — that arm!

Looks like he's clawing his way into that chair. What's going on?... oh.

I guess we are supposed to simultaneously believe Ambassador Taylor is a great ambassador to Ukraine and Yovanivich shouldn't have been removed from the position.

He's slowly transforming from Senator to Sasquatch of the Capital with each day of lying. At the end he'll suddenly run from the room, the trail will show shoes broken open, then very large, bare, flat feet. But visitors to the Capital will report large eyes staring out from darkened corners or a soft whisper will stir the folds of brocaded curtains. But no one hears the same thing twice.

MayBee said...

Oh good. Nunes bringing up what you all noticed here - Schiff supposedly won't know if Republicans "out" the whistleblower, because supposedly none of them know who it is.

narciso said...

Heh nunes is introducing facts to the kangaroo court most irregular.

Wince said...

Correct me if I'm wrong...

But that freeze frame looks like Schiff is giving a bent-over naked orange person a 'reach-around'.

A "common courtesy".

Bay Area Guy said...

Schiff is allegedly a pedophile. And since this allegation is so serious, we should have important secret hearings to investigate the charge, And to protect the victim, he must remain anonymous. You may correspond with the victim's lawyer though - high powered firm, Patton Boggs in D.C. And if there happen to be leaks about certain portions of the written testimony to the NYT, well, Freedom of Spech!

It's the puppeteer's arm sticking out from behind the curtain.

The Yavanovich pity party makes no sense considering her replacement was the star witness yesterday. Are we supposed to believe she was irreplaceable?

narciso said...

Now if andrew lloyd webber could put in free verse...

Bay Area Guy said...

I'm watching Yovanovitch. It's a joke. She's a college professor yapping about generalities, not about the facts of the charge. It's like a campaign speech.

narciso said...

Ukraine policy was largely about protecting the oligarchs as they shipped the countries assets through estonia and cyprus.

tam said...

Maybe its obvious to everyone, but I didn't see it spelled out in the comments, so I thought I'd add it. Schiff's hand is on the chair back. There is someone kneeling behind the chair and we see his forehead and hair.

Has she cried yet? I think the Dems wanted more ‘sizzle’ for the weekend news cycle...

MayBee said...

Beasts- Truth. I know CBS reported this morning she "put on her high heels and pearls" and stood up to the president and testified. So I think we are supposed to head into the weekend on a GIRL POWER! note.

donald said...

She is very butthurt. Extremely butthurt and yeah. They’re gonna send her the signal and she’s gonna cry.

donald said...

She is under no security fears and she knows it.

She is being prompted by a full fusion hack from msnbc, daniel goldman.

MayBee said...

This is about Rudy Giuliani.

Brian said...

Every talking point against Trump can be summed up with "How Dare He!"

Trump suggests finding out how the Ukrainians were involved in the 2016 election? How Dare He!

Trump fires a ambassador (for any reason)? How Dare He!

Someone suggests now that shes been fired she gets back to the US on the next plane? How Dare He!

Trump is not normal! How Dare He!

Bay Area Guy said...

I think her job was to boldly proclaim an "anti-corruption" policy against Ukraine, while allowing Burisma and Biden to further corrupt Ukraine

narciso said...

Thats the gist of it.

MayBee said...

I know I keep repeating this, but her replacement was their star witness two days ago. So while I feel sorry for anyone who loses their job, this trial seems to be on how it was so terrible to fire this lone fighter of corruption.

Birkel said...

The nails of the Democratics' lawyer (Daniel Goldman?) are awful. I was listening and he was doing a fine job with an awful case. He is getting the answers Yovanovitch was coached to give.

But when I looked up I saw his nails and wondered at the pressure he is feeling. Why would his nails be that bad unless he is chewing those nails from stress? And why would he wave his hand toward a camera with those nails? Get him a manicure and a glove!!

Schiff squeals about relevance. She was called back in May.
Relevance to a July 25 phone call?

traditionalguy said...

That is the Abominable Snow Man's arm. Schift is a Yeti.

Bay Area Guy said...

"Why would his nails be that bad unless he is chewing those nails from stress?"

Heh - as a general proposition, if you're high-powered Lawfare lawyer, hired to perpetuate an elaborate hoax, is chewing his nails during Direct Examination, then that's a bad sign.

My barber's second cousin's bridesmaid's ex-husband heard from the school janitor that Schiff is regularly viewed sniffling bicycle seats out in the middle school parking lot.

PB said...

Caught a little of Yovanovitch,s appearance. She's an ambassador? To difficult/troubled parts of the globe? It seems like she'd break down if they got her salad order wrong.

It never ceases to amaze me when these senior govt folks appear. They get paid $175,000+ a year plus rich benefits, plus other things like annual retention bonuses ($50k) at that level. They all sport resumes that talk about their degrees and where they served, but make no mention about actual achievements. Most all seemm like they'd struggles to be a junior manager at an insurance company making $75k

MayBee said...

She seems like a perfectly nice lady, and it's the same playbook as Christine Blasey Ford. A perfectly nice lady appears in front of congress to say something bad and the press can't keep track of the story any more. It's suddenly, "what a nice lady!" how can anyone be mean to her or say anything bad about her story?

Char Char Binks said...

Who is under the desk with Schiff? Let’s get some hearsay evidence.

Bay Area Guy said...

I don't like Yovanovitch. She is an unctuous fool, filled with self-importance.

Iman said...

Those Schiffy eyes... wow.

Bay Area Guy said...

Ambassador Yovanovitch left the Foreign Service about 3 months before Trump's July 2019 phone call.

She literally has no personal knowledge of anything related to this nefarious call.

However, Trump once tweeted about her, and that was mean.

Iman said...

Schiff should be forced to urinate in a cup for drug screening. Somethi... er, a whole host of things are not right about him.

Kevin said...

The White House has released a transcript of the April 21 call between President Trump and then-Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky.

“When you're settled in and ready, I’d like to invite you to the White House. We’ll have a lot of things to talk about, but we’re with you all the way,” Trump said during the call


Can't wait to hear Schiff read those words with all the implied words included.

If you can't find the quid pro quo in there thank a teacher for knowing the actual meaning of words.

bagoh20 said...

Three questions for her:

Does the President have the right to replace you?
Does he need a reason?
Do you assume you have a right to that job forever?

bagoh20 said...

Schiff reminds me of the typical alien you always see portrayed, and you never see Schiff and an alien together? Coincidence?

Besides, he seems to unfamiliar with our laws and customs to be human.

walter said...

Yes, the truth does seem alien to him.

Funny how little play Zelensky's comment on our "intimidated" "public servant" gets:

"It was great that you were the first one who told me that she was a bad ambassador because I agree with you 100%. Her attitude towards me was far from the best as she admired the previous president and she was on his side. She would not accept me as a new president well enough."

For crying out loud..
She might consider installing a second front door.

Blogger donald said...

They’re gonna send her the signal and she’s gonna cry.

I kind of figured the same thing. But they didn't. At least not that I saw.

Instead they got Congressman Denny Heck (D-WA) to sum up an eloquent speech about just how terrible the Orange Man was to bully her. Even while testifying!!! OM is so bad, that he even made derogatory remarks about John McCain!!!! Why, Denny Heck's brother died in Vietnam so he is particularly offended by that.

He was not just upset he was "mad" (I think he meant as in angry but it came across as in crazy)

I could not see if there were actual tears but towards the end of his rant he got so worked up that it sounded like he was crying.

So no, Donald. It's the old switcheroo. Don't have the woman cry, that is too stereotyped. Have a CongressMAN cry. Yeah, that's the ticket.

FullMoon said...

Those Schiffy eyes... wow.

If he were to raise his eyebrows in surprise, his eyeballs might fall out.

He might consider eye lid extension surgery..

PuertoRicoSpaceport.com said...

3 other comments on Heck:

I kept hoping, when he was talking about how mad he was, he would say "I'm mad as Heck!" Alas, no joy.

I wondered if he served, like his brother so looked at his Wikipedia page. Nope. No service other than at the govt trough.

I think he really may be mad (as in crazy) but he may have learned it in school. He is a graduate of lunacy central, Evergreen College.

So proud of Elise. She represents one district over, so I see her signs all the time. She replaced a Democrat who ran on voting against Obamacare, then changed his mind the day after the election. The district was used by the Democrats. Also, gun control not big in a district where there may be more bears than people.

JH,

Democrats in the Kavanaugh hearings and this impeachment inquiry utilize techniques commonly used in college "courts". The lunacy is taught by their Marxist professors in some of the "best" schools.. These people are not crazy. They are fanatical totalitarians.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. If they win more power, we are in for a world of hurt.

Skylark said...

Dow is at 28,000. Democrats are going to have to do something soon! I was talking to a Trump hating friend who sadly moved all but $10,000 of his 401K out of stocks the day after the election. He just admitted that that part was now worth 16K, but the rest of it not doing so well. I feel bad for him, I do. I have been retired for years, but this is a real setback for him.

Matt Sablan said...

If Trump's tweet is witness tampering, if he testifies, what do we do about the House Democrats?

I've known Denny for nearly 30 years. He's a friend.
His time in Congress has not been good to him. We haven't spoken in quite some time.

It's disappointing.

I was being a bit facetious. I don't think he is clinically crazy.

I take your point though. My wife has a cousin about our age. Great guy, never really close but we would have dinner on occasion. He was a lawyer and I used him once or twice for some minor stuff. He was also a LtCol (maybe Colonel)in the Army reserve.

Then in the 90's he got himself elected to the state legislature as a representative. If I didn't know him, I would have said he was batshit crazy. He would get in the news from time to time with some cockamamie idea.

I don't think politics is kind to about 80% of the people who get into it. I think it changes them and not for the better.

Republicans look at Wall Street like crack, until they put the country in the toilet and pull one of their patented 1929s and 2008s on us.

Total junkies. They never learn. They even blame the rehab the country goes through afterward on the authority figures (Democrats) who have to clean up the mess they make after them.

Every last one of them is worthless.

PuertoRicoSpaceport.com said...

Re my use of the word "cousin" above, you have to understand that the word is different here.

On my side, I know all my 1st cousins and some of their kids but that is maybe 10 people.

On my wife's side, she seems to know 1,000 or so cousins. She knows 7th cousins 17 times removed. (Only a slight exaggeration)

Her mother had 17 siblings, her father 13 and all of them were prolific. I would not be surprised if she had 150 or so 1st cousins.

So when I say cousin, it does not necessarily mean a close relative.

HoaxPPT: "Republicans look at Wall Street like crack, until they put the country in the toilet and pull one of their patented 1929s and 2008s on us."

Hundreds of thousands of long term unemployed workers reentering the workforce, meanwhile, wages up across all quintiles with the largest wage gains for workers in the lowest 3 quintiles.

Average wage gain in just the first 2.5 years under Trump: $6,600
Average wage gains over 8 years of obumbler and the commies: $900

Consumer confidence soaring to record highs.

Record low unemployment across all demographic groups and geographic regions.

Hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs return which the HoaxPPT'ers told us would never come back are back.

Inflation, which all the moron HoaxPPT'ers told us would be thru the roof remains at a paltry 1.8%.

HoaxPPT and his "100% wrong on every economic factor across the board" idiot crew, hot off the collapse of their latest bungled hoax impeachment gambit, now have to look forward to convincing all those Americans on Main Street with jobs and higher wages that their reality isn't really reality after all!!

LOL

Maybe if HoaxPPT and his pals combine their latest economic "hot takes" with their previous lefty hot takes such as "light bulbs" cause people to poop on the sidewalk in San Francisco then maybe, maybe, the lefties can persuade everyone we have entered a new economic dark age!

I don't know. Maybe its just me, but I think that's going to be a tough sell!!

Hey, you know what might help? Lets get a Bain guy to jump into the dem primary race!

That should do it....



President Toilet Paper Shoe's Perfect Phone Call said...

Same things as were said in 1928 and 2007, DUMMY. Point not made.

But some blonde toupee-wearer has made you her cheerleader while she lies about everything else and tries to revoke the independence of the federal reserve, so keep cheerleading. She needs it in between all the pardons she writes for all those "friends" of hers going to jail for her.

Strong economies don't need marketing chiefs and salespeople. No, the same people who brought America 1929 and 2008 are not needed today, either. And manufacturing jobs did not "return." They are concentrated in the microbrewery sector. Hard to tout your strength in the world economy when it's based off of making fellow Americans drunk. And are the rest concentrated in California, the state that Trump's trying to set on fire literally while nattering some weird crap about "raking forests?" And what happened to those auto plants in Ohio?

Does Trump get you to coif his toupee while you fellate him?

In any event, what great work you're doing convincing African Americans that they've not been this productive to their Wall Street owner/task-masters since slavery!

How are household savings with this great wage-slave economy of yours? Lots of people moving income brackets, right? What wonderful peanuts your reality tv star is throwing them.

Keep stuffing those envelopes, mail-boy!

I have to admit, I'm impressed with the way the consistency displayed by obama in refusing for years to provide lethal defensive weapons to the Ukrainians in clear alignment with Putin's wishes (all that "more flexibility after the next election" pillowtalk between obama and Medvedev makes a lot more sense, doesn't it?).

I mean, a weaker man would have given in and stood up to Putin. But not our obambi!

Think of this obambi particular failure as one of several of his Ukrainian "Red Line" flops.

Marxism in the Midwest instead of of Wall Street boosterism? You don't say. It's almost like Dreck O has either never been there or never knew who La Follette, Eugene Debbs, the DFL, or Jimmy Hoffa were, let alone where they were from and where their memories are strongest.

That's a lot of very important American history to be ignorant of, especially for an envelope stuffer like him who pretends to know so much about American labor.

Oh well. I'm sure he knows (and cares) much more about Europeans like Friedrich Marx and Joseph Stalin.

Matt Sablan said...

I vaguely recall the 2008 recession being linked to bubbles that Bush tried, but not too hard so as not to rock the boat too much, to take action on, only to be stymied repeatedly, combined with the complete ineffectual handling of the stimulus which was supposed to be temporary, timely and targeted -- only for both parties to botch that.

But, yes. The simplistic REPUBLICAN BAD, DEMOCRAT GOOD narrative is probably easier to digest than the reality of multiple causes across a variety of markets and institutions.

Thing is, Denny was already into politics. He was a State Representative, Chief Clerk of the (Washington) state House, he basically started TVW (the state's version of C-Span) he's an author and an accomplished person at every level.

But he's gone off the rails once he got to DC.
