Impeachment Backfiring: The American people are growing old of the impeachment politics from the left. The day after President Trump was elected, liberal Democrats have started their “resist” program (hurting average Americans) and pushing hoax after hoax to try and “find” something to impeach this President.
Get over it…take it to the ballot box!!!
Now the Ukrainian non-event event is backfiring and bringing Joe Biden and his shady dealings into question. The President asked for help from the Ukrainian to get to the bottom of a two year old plus investigation…legitimate and important. The Democrats and mainstream media are trying to spin another scandal…it ain’t there.
We get you don’t like Trump. However… Stop wasting our time. Stop wasting our money. Stop playing political games.
Elections have consequences AND that’s “our way” of settling political disputes. Let the country move forward and if you don’t like President Trump, don’t vote for him. Pick some crazy looney left winger set on destroying America as we know it. But start legislating. Start representing the people that elected you…whether they voted for you or not.
Get on with the work you are paid to do…STOP playing politics!
America’s Greatness is America’s Diversity: This week Texas police officer Sandeep Dhaliwal lost his life in the line of duty. He was the first Sikh American to serve and die as a law enforcement from the Sikh community. We honor and mourn his tragic death.
But his life and untimely death also reminds us of America’s greatness. As immigrants from the Punjab region, now partitioned between India and Pakistan.The Sikh community has added much to our country. As legal immigrants to engage, love and serve their adopted country, American Sikh preserve their culture while bleeding red, white and blue.
A great tribute to what makes America Great!

‘An orchestrated farce’: House Intel Republicans accuse Schiff of concealing info about whistleblower
Top House Intelligence Committee Republicans accused Chairman Adam Schiff of withholding information from the panel about a whistleblower complaint concerning President Trump before it became public.
Responding to a report that revealed Schiff had earlier knowledge of the complaint from a CIA officer than previously known, California Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member, called the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry a politically motivated attack on the president.
“We learn from the press today that Chm Schiff had prior knowledge and involvement in the WB complaint. He withheld this info from the American people and even from the Intel Cmte. In light of this news, it’s hard to view impeachment as anything aside from an orchestrated farce,” Nunes tweeted.

ICIG Didn’t Review Ukraine Call Before Forwarding Whistleblower Complaint
On Monday afternoon, the Intelligence Community Inspector General published a press release describing his office’s handing of whistleblower complaints, attempting to quell the firestorm created by untimely changes to a key whistleblower form that raised suspicions amongst the public and members of Congress.
Unfortunately, this firestorm does not appear to be dying down, and elements of the release only cast further doubts on how Atkinson and his team have handled this entire episode, and whether they are finally being forthright about the rationale and timing of the changes or trying to obfuscate their way through the crisis. The release clearly confirmed that the IG did in fact remove the “first-hand information” requirement from the form in August, as The Federalist first reported last week.
The release also attempted to leave the impression that the change was routine with its timing unrelated to the Ukraine complaint. It spent nearly an entire page of the three-page document describing an initiative to update forms that was apparently ongoing in the organization. Notably, multiple press outlets have used that characterization to minimize the issue, some even calling genuine concerns about the apparent subterfuge by the ICIG a “hoax story.”
Is Joe Biden Turning His Quid Pro Quo into an Obama Scandal?
As Joe Biden continues to play defense over allegations of a quid pro quo for his threat to withhold a $1 billion loan to Ukraine, it seems that his primary defense was that he wasn’t acting unilaterally, but on behalf of the Obama administration, enforcing their official policy. Given all the information we have at this point, this strategy seems more likely to hurt Obama than protect Biden.
For starters, Biden previously implicated Obama back in 2016 when he bragged about how he got Viktor Shokin fired:
“They were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, … we are not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the president—the president said’ … I said, ‘Call him.’ I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.’ I said, you’re not getting the billion. … I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a b—-. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
On Wednesday Biden said he was simply carrying out the “official policy” of the Obama administration to root out corruption in Ukraine. “It was a fully transparent policy carried out in front of the whole world and fully, fully embraced by the international community of democracies,” he claimed.
Here’s where things get dirty. According to Viktor Shokin, Biden’s pressure was responsible for him getting fired. Shokin also said that Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko told him not to investigate Burisma because it was not in the best interests of Joe and/or Hunter Biden.
Belarus rejects Russia’s integration plans – ‘absolutely unacceptable’, says Belarusian FM
Belarusian Foreign Minister Uladzimir Makey said in an interview to Russian media that Moscow’s plans for more integration with Belarus are “unacceptable”. The media has previously reported that the two countries are moving towards an economic confederacy.
During discussions on integration plans, the Russian side put forward some “absolutely unacceptable” proposals, including the creation of several supra-national bodies, Uladzimir Makey said in an interview to RBC, according to the Poland-based Belarusian news agency Belsat.
“I think that if they are not tackled, it will be difficult to talk about the signing of the program […] because we do not understand the logic of our partners,” said Makey.
Belarus and Russia are due to sign a new cooperation agreement by December 8, which, according to Russian media reports earlier in September, would go further than the current deal signed in 1999, and the two countries would move toward a de facto confederacy.
1,500-Year-Old Mosaic Depicts Jesus Feeding 5000 People Unearthed Near The Galilee Sea
A 1,500-year-old mosaic depicting Jesus’s feeding of the five thousand has been unearthed during an excavation of an ancient city near the Sea of Galilee.
The discovery of the so-called Burnt Church in Hippos, northern Israel, has enthralled archaeologists who have spent the summer combing it for historical evidence. A fire destroyed the fifth-century church in 700AD but the mosaic-paved floor has been remarkably preserved throughout the centuries by a layer of ash.
Located in the heart of the Holy Land, Hippos overlooks the Sea of Galilee – also known as the Kinneret – where it was once the site of a Greco-Roman city.
The mosaic purports to capture one of the miracles referred to in the New Testament where Jesus used just five loaves and two fish to feed 5,000 people gathered on the banks of the water.
After 70 Years, Communist China Is Weaker Than It Appears
The Communist ideology is a parasite that cannot survive for long on its own.
The Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 after 69 years of tyranny and aggression. On October 1, the People’s Republic of China will officially turn 70. The brutal regime of Mao Zedong and Xi Jinping has made China the world’s longest surviving Communist country, and unlike the Kremlin of old, Beijing seems stronger than ever.
The contrast between China today and the Soviet Union at its death could hardly be more stark. In the early 1990s, Russia’s military was swiftly losing ground to American investment and innovation, forcing a global retreat of influence and power. Today, the People’s Liberation Army is quickly closing the gap with the U.S. armed forces and is projecting its newfound power from the Arctic to Africa to Australasia.
Communist China is also sprinting economically. It overtook Japan as the world’s second-largest economy in 2011, and its GDP has nearly tripled since then. Many forecasters say it’s a matter of when, not if, China overtakes the U.S. By comparison, the Soviet Union struggled to keep its economy even half as large as America’s. Finally, China is markedly more oppressive than the Soviet Union at a similar age. Where the latter was weakening its control over people through perestroika and glasnost, the former has imprisoned millions of Muslim Uighurs, initiated a new crackdown on Christian worshipers, and instituted a draconian social-credit system that monitors the Chinese people’s daily lives and ranks them accordingly. It even seems willing to initiate a Tiananmen Square–style crackdown on the escalating protest movement in Hong Kong.
