Trump No Longer Complying with Partisan 'Impeachment' (Hake News, Wed 10/9/19)
TOP OF FIRST HOUR NEWS: Wednesday, October 9, 2019 -
(Drudge) TRUMP TELLS DEMS TO SHOVE IT! WHITE HOUSE WAR ON IMPEACHMENT (NY Times shared by MSN) The good guys called it an illegitimate effort “to overturn the results of the 2016 election.” In a letter to House Democratic leaders, the White House said the inquiry had violated precedent and denied President Trump’s due process rights in such an egregious way that neither he nor the executive branch would willingly provide testimony or documents. “Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice,” said the letter signed by Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel. “In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the executive branch and all future occupants of the office of the presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.” NIIIICE! Trump called it a “kangaroo court.” WITNESS BLOCKED FROM PROBE The White House blocked the interview of a supposed key witness, Gordon D. Sondland, the US ambassador to the European Union (horrible organization), just hours before he was to appear on Capitol Hill. A senior administration official said no other witnesses or documents would be provided, putting a “full halt” to cooperation. SO... (Politico) The White House vows to block the 'ILLEGITIMATE' and ‘Dangerous’ impeachment effort!
Democrats cry 'OBSTRUCTION' Phony Nancy Pelosi said in a statement, “The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President’s abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction. Mr. President, you are not above the law. You will be held accountable.”
(Drudge) HILLARY 2020? 'DON'T TEMPT ME'... (Mediaite) Trump tweeted: “I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren. Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting “C” Subpoena!” So Crooked Hillary Clinton responded: “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.” DUMB! Clinton said back in March she’s not running for president. Clinton recently said she supports impeachment (NOW YOU KNOW IT’S ILLEGITIMATE!). She tweeted then that “The president of the United States has betrayed our country” (PLEASE!) and that he “is a clear and present danger to the things that keep us strong and free.” (OH GOSH!) New polling in the Democratic race today shows Elizabeth Warren ahead of Joe Biden 29-26, followed by Bernie Sanders at 16. The poll shows all three beating Trump in head-to-head match-ups. YEAH RIGHT!
(Drudge) FBI Foreign-Surveillance Violated Americans' Rights, Court Found… That’s that secret FISA court. (WSJ) U.S. disclosed a ruling last year by Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that FBI’s data queries of U.S. citizens were unconstitutional. Some of the FBI, Federal Bureau of Investigation’s, electronic surveillance activities violated the constitutional privacy rights of Americans swept up in a controversial foreign intelligence program, a secretive surveillance court has ruled. The ruling deals a rare rebuke to U.S. spying programs that have generally withstood legal challenge and review since they were dramatically expanded after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The opinion resulted in the FBI agreeing to better safeguard privacy and apply new procedures. YEAH RIGHT!
(Drudge) STD rates hit record high… (US News and World Reports) The U.S. saw more than 2.4 million reported cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis in 2018, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows. NASTY! Gonorrhea and cases of primary and secondary syphilis – the disease's most infectious stages – both reached their highest levels since 1991 last year.
115,045 syphilis cases included over 35,000 cases of primary and secondary syphilis, a 14.9% rate uptick from 2017.
There were more than 583,000 cases of gonorrhea, a rate increase of 5% from 2017.
The rate of reported chlamydia cases rose 3% to total more than 1.7 million in 2018 – nearly two-thirds of which were among people 15 to 24 years old, the report shows.

TOP OF SECOND HOUR NEWS: Wednesday, October 9, 2019 -
(Drudge) TRUMP 11,000 TWEETS! (Wash Examiner) Trump reached 11,093 tweets since Inauguration Day during his criticism of the Democratic impeachment drive and 2020 thoughts, capped today by his call for 2016 challenger Hillary Rodham Clinton to get into the presidential race. The number comes from Trump Twitter Archive, and it includes some retweets. A separate counter from YouGov.com puts his tweets — excluding retweets — from Feb. 4, 2017 at 8,022. About 15% of the public read his tweets very often — either directly or as reported in the news media.
He Defends blocking witness before 'kangaroo court'... in the Democrat and RINO impeachment probe. Trump tweeted: “I would love to send Ambassador Sondland, a really good man and great American, to testify, but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican’s rights have been taken away, and true facts are not allowed out for the public to see,” Trump wrote in a series of tweets Tuesday morning. Sondland was supposed to appear in closed-door testimony Tuesday. Democrats wanted Sondland because of his supposed involvement in Trump administration efforts to get Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter — two very corrupt Democrat individuals.
(Drudge) SHOCK POLL: 3 in 10 REPUBLICANS support impeachment push… 3 in 10 are RINOs! (The Week) A 58 percent majority of Americans ARE APPARENTLY UNTHINKING AND BRAINWASHED, supposedly saying House Democrats were right to begin an impeachment inquiry of President Trump, and a 49 percent plurality say the House should vote to remove him from office, according to a Washington Post-Schar School poll released Tuesday morning. Support for impeachment has jumped significantly across the board since the White House released a transcript of Trump's July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in late September. I DON’T KNOW WHY. THAT PHONE CALL WAS PERFECT! There is a clear partisan split in the results, but 28 percent of Republicans (RINOs!) said they support the House impeachment investigation — a 21-point jump from a Washington Post/ABC News poll in July — and 18 percent of Republicans want the House to "vote to remove Trump from office." TRAITORS! IF YOU EVEN BELIEVE THESE INFLATED NUMBERS. THEY FELL FOR THE PROPAGANDA. HERE’S THE TYPE OF PEOPLE IN THAT CAMP:
Attorney and former U.S. Representative Trey Gowdy (of SC) at first was said to decline to represent President, but in an update he reportedly will… BE CAREFUL TRUMP, HE’S AN INEFFECTIVE RINO! (Law and Crime) Trey Gowdy is widely known for his explosive sparring on Capitol Hill, and is one name the White House has reached out to. Social media erupted with tweets on Tuesday afternoon into the evening as it was claimed that Gowdy declined to represent the president. But actually, Gowdy said “yes” to helping with impeachment strategy, and will work from outside the White House. BUT, Gowdy is not “formally joining the White House staff,” per Bloomberg.
A White House official who listened in on Trump's Ukraine call described it as 'Crazy', and 'frightening'... BETA!!! (Business Insider) The official was also "visibly shaken" by the conversation, the report said, citing notes taken by the whistleblower. The whistleblower, believed to be a CIA officer, went on to file an official complaint against Trump, accusing him of abusing his power for personal gain.
(Wash Times) Biden, and his son could be forced to testify in trial… as well as potentially other Democrat senators running for office. If they charge him stemming from the Russia thing, it could open the door to witnesses such as fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok or even major figures from the Obama administration.

(Drudge) Erdogan announces start of military offensive in northern Syria… (Reuters) - Turkey and its Syrian rebel allies have launched their military operation into northeastern Syria, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday, adding that the offensive aimed to eliminate a "terror corridor" along the southern Turkish border. Erdogan said the offensive, dubbed "Operation Peace Spring", would aim to eliminate threats from the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia and the Islamic State militants, and enable the return of Syrian refugees in Turkey after the formation of a "safe zone" in the area. "Our mission is to prevent the creation of a terror corridor across our southern border, and to bring peace to the area," Erdogan said on Twitter. "We will preserve Syria's territorial integrity and liberate local communities from terrorists."
BUT Kurds mobilize… as KURDS say: TURKEY is TARGETING CIVILIANS with Turkish war planes, causing “a huge panic among people of the region.” Activists said there were airstrikes on a town on Syria’s northern border. They say there will be a lot of displacement, meaning refugees, I believe. There Kurdish fighters that Turkey consider terrorists.
(Drudge) Judge Warns Education Secretary DeVos He Could Send Her to Jail… LIBERAL JUDGE! U.S. Magistrate Judge Sallie Kim (SHE ASIAN) in San Francisco rebuked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for continuing to collect debt payments from students after she had been ordered to stop by a court order (their loans were supposed to be forgiven or something). She said, “At best, it is gross negligence. At worst, it’s intentional flouting of my order. I'm not sending anyone to jail yet, but it's good to know I have that ability. There have to be some consequences for the violation of my order 16,000 times." The number 16,000 refers to the total count of students from the now-defunct for-profit Corinthian College that were contacted about repaying federal loans that were supposed to be forgiven.
In May 2018, Kim issued a court order that instructed DeVos to stop collecting loans from the former students. Instead, the Department of Education seized payroll and tax refunds from nearly 2,000 students, the vast majority of whom have not yet been refunded their money. The Borrower Defense to Repayment program that was restructured by the Obama administration in 2016 allows students to apply for debt forgiveness if their college engaged in deceptive or predatory practices. However, when DeVos became Education Secretary in 2017, she essentially gutted the rule.
Justice Department attorney Charlie Merritt, who represents DeVos and the Education Department, told Kim that the agency takes "responsibility" and "will bring ourselves into full compliance." In addition to the criticism, Kim agreed to lift a hold on the original lawsuit filed by the Corinthian College students. The hold had been in place since President Trump filed an appeal of Kim's original decision in July 2018. "I'm so concerned about this violation of the order that I think the stay is gone,” Kim noted in the hearing. “We're going to do everything full speed ahead from this point forward,” she said. SOUNDS LIKE A LIBERAL ACTIVIST JUDGE TO ME!
(Drudge) FEDERAL DEFICIT HIGHEST IN 7 YEARS… (The Hill) it’s estimated at $984B, a hefty 4.7 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) and the highest since 2012, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said on Monday. The difference between federal spending and revenue has only ever exceeded $1 trillion four times, in the period immediately following the global financial crisis. The deficit, which has grown every year since 2015, is $205 billion higher than it was in 2018, a jump of 26 percent. The CBO has warned that the nation's debt is on an unsustainable path. Higher levels of debt increase borrowing costs, make it harder for the government to battle economic downturns and increase the share of future spending devoted to paying off interest costs.
Trump Promised to Eliminate the deficit; currently it’s up 68%... IT’LL HAPPEN, DON’T WORRY! That’s just far-left Newsweek trying to turn you away from him! They don’t care about America. He said he would eliminate the budget deficit within eight years. But it’s only been 3 years.

James talks about the first black mayor being elected last night in Montgomery, Alabama, which Reuters pumps as the “birthplace of the civil rights movement.” This new mayor was the county’s first black judge, and the state’s first judge to issue so-called same-sex marriage licenses. TRASH! Then James covers past TDS tweets from liberal anti-Trump attorney Mark Zaid, another lawyer for the so-called “whistleblowers.”
THEN: Great calls from blacks on white female officer Amber Guyger, black Christian male Botham Jean whom she shot in his apartment, and witness Joshua Brown who allegedly died dealing drugs. Joe from Phoenix calls James a loser, and James calls him a snake and a fake. One guy points out Brandt Jean’s forgiveness, and this caller Jerry cites a conspiracy theory that Guyger killed Jean in a jealous rage!
Montgomery Is Going Down
Uh oh! (Drudge) Birthplace of civil rights movement elects first black mayor… TERRIBLE!
CLIP 11ab: NBC News clip showing the mayor talking...
(Reuters) - Montgomery, the capital of the southern U.S. state of Alabama, known as the birthplace of the civil rights movement for its 1950s bus boycotts over segregated seating, has elected the first black mayor in its 200-year history. Steven Reed, a county probate judge who is black, defeated David Woods, a white businessman who owns a regional television station, unofficial results posted online by the city show, by winning 67 percent of the vote in a nonpartisan runoff.
Media photographs online showed Reed supporters holding up campaign T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan, “We made history,” in the city of about 200,000, about 60 percent of whom are African American, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. “This election has never been about me,” Mayor-elect Reed said in his victory speech late on Tuesday, according to the Montgomery Advertiser newspaper. “This election has never been about just my ideas. It’s been about all the hopes and dreams we have as individuals and collectively in this city.”
Reed was also the first African-American elected the county’s probate judge in 2012, the Advertiser said. In 2015, he was the first probate judge in Alabama to issue same-sex marriage licenses.
Reed’s victory came in a city still getting to terms with its past — SO SAYS FAR-LEFT ACTIVISTS REUTERS. It was the first capital of the Confederate States of America in 1861. Last year, the Equal Justice Initiative opened the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and the Legacy Museum in downtown Montgomery to honor victims of lynching in the racially segregated era after the U.S. Civil War.
The city is the site of the Montgomery bus boycott, a year-long civil rights protest that started in 1955, led by black seamstress Rosa Parks (WAIT SHE’S NOT JUST A SEAMSTRESS, SHE WAS AN ACTIVIST IN THE NAACP!), who refused to give up her seat to a white patron, as the law then required, and was famously jailed.
Info on so-called whistleblower’s other lawyer, Mark Zaid:
Mark Zaid retweeted leftist actress Morgan Fairchild who shared an article: Anderson Cooper Blows Up at Trump, Ivanka in Scathing Monologue: She Must Be 'Very Proud' Her Dad Called Jews Disloyal via mediaite
Mark Zaid quote-tweeted a liberal reporter at Washington Post smearing Wayne Allyn Root, and said: “Who you keep company with and tout as your supporter says a lot about a person. In this case, all bad for @realDonaldTrump . No surprise.” SO HE’S A TRUMP HATER.
That reporter, Aaron Blake, had quote-tweeted a Trump tweet and a far-left Daily Beast article and wrote: Wayne Allyn Root has promoted conspiracy theories including that Las Vegas shooter had ISIS ties, Charlottesville was a false flag, Seth Rich was murdered (by any number of Democrats) and birtherism. [shares Daily Beast article]
Aaron had quote-tweeted Trump’s Twitter thread quoting Wayne Allyn Root, which read: Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world...and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God...But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for all Jews, Blacks, Gays, everyone. And importantly, he’s good for everyone in America who wants a job.” Wow! @newsmax @foxandfriends @OANN
Mark Zaid retweets this liberal Texas law professor a lot, named Steve Vladeck, who’s married to a female lawyer, has a Twitter account for his pug dog, has a podcast and blogs, and has appeared on CNN as a SCOTUS / legal nerd.
Mar Zaid retweeted some guy Steven L. Hall who tried to contradict Trump. Trump had tweeted: Another Fake News story out there - It never ends! Virtually anytime I speak on the phone to a foreign leader, I understand that there may be many people listening from various U.S. agencies, not to mention those from the other country itself. No problem! Knowing all of this, is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially “heavily populated” call. I would only do what is right anyway, and only do good for the USA!
So Mark Zaid retweeted this guy Steven L. Hall for saying: To be clear, here’s what DID NOT happen: NSA and/or CIA did not clandestinely listen in on any Presidential call. NSA and CIA are focused on collecting FOREIGN intel. Trump’s comments are a dog whistle to his “deep state” fearing base.
Mark Zaid himself tweeted: A president of the United States attacking an individual #whistleblower who followed the law step by step (and has never sought publicity) - #embarrassing, #disturbing, #authoritarian
Mark Zaid was quote-tweeting Trump who had tweeted: The Radical Left Democrats and their Fake News Media partners, headed up again by Little Adam Schiff, and batting Zero for 21 against me, are at it again! They think I may have had a “dicey” conversation with a certain foreign leader based on a “highly partisan” whistleblowers statement. Strange that with so many other people hearing or knowing of the perfectly fine and respectful conversation, that they would not have also come forward. Do you know the reason why they did not? Because there was nothing said wrong, it was pitch perfect!
Mark Zaid himself tweeted: The US "media is a joke" in the world says @realDonaldTrump . How #embarrassing to hear this from a president. Hey @FoxNews , @POTUS didn't exclude you from that criticism.
Caller Log, courtesy of Jesse’s producer, Nick
James from Dallas is too blessed to be stressed. He asks James what’s wrong with Jesse and why he is so crazy. James wonders what’s wrong with James for thinking something is wrong with Jesse. James asks James if he believes in innocent till proven guilty. Caller James brings up Amber Guyger all to say that his people have been under attack. James makes the claim that Jesus came in the first slave ship. James asks the caller why he thinks Amber killed Botham and they move onto Joshua Brown. James, the caller, implies that Joshua Browns death was because of the cops. James calls the hugs after the Amber Guyger case “a whole bunch of coonery”.
Red from Compton calls to talk to the previous caller James. Red wants the caller to answer James question of why he thinks Amber might have killed Botham. The caller makes the claim that Amber was motivated by the fact Botham was black. Red gets to his point that black people are so misinformed. Red makes the point that women shouldn’t be law enforcement. Red makes the point that blacks commit crime disproportionately and asks the caller if he thinks that might have factored in.
Joe from Phoenix has some stats about black people to challenge James. Joe wants James to stop focusing on the skin color and to focus on the lack of fathers but James wonders why blacks like Joe, who can be reasonable at times, tend to team up with the blacks against the whites and excuse their failure. Joe asks when has insulting people and denigrating them ever helped them. James corrects him and says that saying the truth without judging might make people wake up.
Kevin from Connecticut says people are missing the point that Brandt Jean totally forgave Amber Guyger. He is disappointed that all people want to see is race.
Jerry from Long Beach, CA claims Amber Guyger and Botham Jean knew each other and that the killing was a crime of passion. She was jealous and heartbroken and he cites some pictures on Facebook that were taken down.
