lol @ these people pretending they have some sort of principled objection to Trump.

This is a typical witness:

Zeldin: You're telling us that Tim Morrison told you that Ambassador Sondland told him that the President told Ambassador Sondland that Zelensky would have to open an investigation into Biden?

Taylor: That's correct.

Zeldin: And then it's your inference that Mr. Giuliani's goal would be the President's goal?

Taylor: Yes

Zeldin: And your source is The New York Times?

Taylor: Yes.

Where was your outrage when O, Clinton and Biden were playing Ukrainians for idiots?

You get your "facts" from the MSM. What a great source!

I'm glad people like Tulsi still exist in politics.

Tulsi Gabbard Calls Out ‘View’ Co-host Joy Behar For Implying That She’s ‘Stupid’
“That is extremely offensive to me and to every woman of color,” the Hawaii representative and presidential hopeful said on the talk show.






By David Moye


Things got tense on Wednesday’s episode of “The View” after Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) went after the hosts for implying she was “stupid” during recent episodes.

“Some of you have accused me of being a traitor to my country, a Russian asset, a Trojan horse or a useful idiot, I think is the term that you used, which basically means that I am naive or lack intelligence,” Gabbard said, adding that she wanted to set the record straight.

“I am a patriot. I love our country. I am a strong and intelligent woman of color and I have dedicated almost my entire adult life to protecting the safety, security and the freedom of all Americans in this country,” the Samoan-born Army veteran said.

Gabbard has come under fire in part because she has defended dictators like Syrian dictator Bashar Assad and Egyptian strongman Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi, whose regime has massacred protesters.

She also recently accused Hillary Clinton of being the “personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long” after the former secretary of state suggested that “somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary” is being groomed “to be the third-party candidate.”

Co-host Joy Behar tried to assuage Gabbard’s gripes by suggesting that she is simply an an “unwitting” asset of Russia and added “not that that means you’re stupid, but people can be used.”

Gabbard wasn’t having it.

“Let me start with how offensive it is to say that I’m a witting or unwitting asset of a foreign country, working against the interests of my country, a country that I am willing to lay my life down for,” she said. “So if you are saying it’s not deliberately, then you are implying that I am too stupid and too naive and lack the intelligence to know what I am doing. And that is extremely offensive to me and to every woman of color.”

Co-host Meghan McCain then wondered why Gabbard ” so many people in so many different ways.”

Gabbard appreciated the softball question pitched right down the middle.

“Because I’m speaking truth to power, and those in power know they can’t control me,” Gabbard answered, “so they view me and the truth I’m speaking as a threat to that power base.”

McCain then thanked the congresswoman for not threatening to take away her guns, at which point Behar chimed in, “I’ll take them.”

The interview went through two commercial breaks, but you can see one of the segments below:

House Democrats said Monday that the House will vote Thursday to formalize procedures for the next phase of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Democrats said the move would “ensure transparency and provide a clear path forward” as the inquiry continues.

If it looks like a coup, smells like a coup, talks like a coup and, indeed, walks like a coup....it is a coup.

The leading witness won't testify?

Democrats looking forward, not back and moving on from Russian collusion(remember that failed attack?).

Oh, and if you can come up with a rational explanation as to how Epstein strangled himself to death while the cameras were turned off, pleas do so.

This country is F'd.

I agree with you that Epstein looks to have been murdered and that the country looks to be f'd (the whole world, actually), but not about the rest.

The whistleblower is not the lead witness, merely the first, and there are now plenty of others on the frigging record, but you and ZH conveniently overlook that ... while demanding that s/he be outed so Trump can incite his morons to whack him. That's sick, dude.

But again, like I said to Horgad, I'm done with this. If you want to live in a banana republic, go for it. But spare me that right wing ZH shit, I won't be responding.

As a resident of Hawaii since the 70's, I would add this: You seem to be missing a major point.

Maui politics is hard core Democrats in action. Trump is siding with the Hawaii Dems political machine.

What's not to like?

yes, that is sarcasm

Thus proving my point that hypocrisy is what politics in the US is all about.

How many Presidents and Congresses from both parties have ignored this?
propublica.org

of note:

The above article was published during the height of the Obama admin.

"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which has primary regulatory authority over the nation's injection wells, would not discuss specific well failures identified by ProPublica or make staffers available for interviews. The agency also declined to answer many questions in writing, though it sent responses to several. Its director for the Drinking Water Protection Division, Ann Codrington, sent a statement to ProPublica defending the injection program's effectiveness."



hawaii has been well aware of the problem since the mid 80's
