    Wednesday’s highly anticipated public impeachment hearing amounted to a ratings flop, with only 13 million viewers tuning in, according to reports.
    The hearing, which featured Bill Taylor, acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, and George Kent, a senior State Department official, was teased as a “bombshell, given House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) allocating Democrats more time to dominate and minimize GOP voices in the first hour. Nonetheless, Democrats failed to live up to the hype, as reflected in viewership.

    Those too young to remember, back in the 50's there was a Sen. Joe McCarthy, (R - WI), who used to wave a paper around and claim he had a list of names of people in the state department who were admitted communist. I watched the idiot on TV. No one ever saw the names. I see a similar situation with Rep. Adam Schiff (D - CA) . The media gave McCarthy lots of press and he was a cold-hearted attack dog. I see a similar situation with Schiff. Finally McCarthy was called out by a brave broadcast journalist, Edward R. Murrow, and later disgraced when the senate censured him. I see a similar situation with Schiff and believe it's time for congress to censure him. Schiff kept telling us he had solid proof that Trump colluded with the Russians. No one ever saw that proof because he had none. Now look at the circus he is chairing. The man is not mentally stable, he has to be delusional, and should not be in any kind of leadership role in our country. Come on congress, show some maturity and backbone.

    And Schiff is the only one who knows the lock combination of the briefcase. It will be sealed for life.

    Nah.. Schiffty isn't a modern day McCarthy. He's more the obsequious rat.. the Grima Wormtongue of his day. Who elected this DBag? He is from Kalifornia and one of the little People's Republics there of, so I suppose it shouldn't be too much of a stretch to see this as the self satisfying stage show that it is. He certainly comes off as the schemer...

    Joseph McCarthy was a red bater and hate monger that eventually voters removed from the Senate ending the red scare. If one fails to see or admit the difference between an unConstitutional smear of dozens of Americans with a clear goal of ruining their lives and this today is clearly biased. The only "crime" McCarthy's victims committed was having belief in a silly system -- communism. So be it. You're safe in your post however except from guys like me who are older than dirt. I saw it all and it was a disgrace and both parties played the game.

    What is taking place today is the impeachment of a president that has been charged with violating his oath of office and engaging in bribery. That is a crime. Believing in communism is just stupid, not a crime. It's important to know the difference.

    Finally.. so you guys have finally settled on bribery then.. sweet. I assume that we can gin up the special prosecutor then for the crime against the nation for the Iranian Nuclear deal then... oh, and old Joe is going to look awful in orange sitting next to Barry....

    Here's what I think the good folk need to understand. What we're really seeing here is the unity and the entirety of the democratic party attempting to undermine this president so the Ukraine doesn't get defensive weapons to defend themselves against the Russians. That seems entirely clear now. So, democrats, you guys are actually the collusionists, the conspirators, and all the other things you've bandied about against Trump for three years now. Nice to finally meet ya....

    Trump has not been charged with anything because there is absolutely no evidence that he committed a crime.

    The Federal requirement for bribery to take place is that there has to be a, "specific stated offer." (103 S.E. 2d 670)

    So your comment is actually nothing more than slander.

    I remember McCarthy as well- a real weasel, attacking anybody who didn't agree with him or tolerate him as a communist, just on the basis they didn't agree. Real self-serving, egotistical bastard.
    McCarthy was tolerated way too long, and managed to do a great deal of damage to a lot of people before common sense returned and he was censured by the senate in 1954. He should have been expelled, (which is like being fired by the congress, the only institution with that power) But then congress is damn poor at policing itself- having removed only two of their members since the civil war. McCarthy saw communists everywhere and operated like a Salem witch hunter. Schiff's scope may be narrower, but the mentality behind it is very much like McCarthy.

    :roflol: I know you do and I know you don't need proof. Hillary said he is a Russian asset and that's all you need. Been saying this about Democrats forever.

    McCarthy was a rather incompetent boob, but history has proved that he was right about Reds infiltrating the USG.

    "The sum and substance of this growing body of material is that: Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, executed in June 1953 for atomic espionage, were guilty; Alger Hiss, a darling of the establishment was guilty; and that dozens of lesser known persons such as Victor Perlo, Judith Coplon and Harry Gold, whose innocence of the accusations made against them had been a tenet of leftist faith for decades, were traitors or, at the least, the ideological vassals of a foreign power....

    McCarthy, as his subsequent history would show, knew little about communism, on this side of the ocean or the other. This loutish, duplicitous bully, who carried, not the names of Reds but bottles of hootch in his briefcase died in disgrace and of alcoholism. Yet, in a global sense McCarthy was on to something. McCarthy may have exaggerated the scope of the problem but not by much. The government was the workplace of perhaps 100 communist agents in 1943-45. He just didn't know their names." THE WASHINGTON POST, "Was McCarthy Right About The Left?," "The Reds Were Under the Bed While the Liberals Looked Away," Nicholas von Hoffman, 4/14/1996

    McCarthy was looking into the corruption of Eisenhower? Was he uncovering instances of Eisenhower having a strange relationship with Khrushchev? Was he exposing instances of Eisenhower using his office to advance his personal benefits?

    No, it was a narrative about communists in the government and now it is a narrative invented based on wanting to impeach the President from day one. If the useful idiots can't see what the dem clown show is doing and why it is much like McCarthy's hearings then I can't help them.

    You seem to miss the point that Trump got caught trying to use hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in an effort to force the Ukrainian government to help Trump in his re-election efforts. Two of Trump’s operatives were caught and arrested for funneling Russian money into Trump’s campaign.

    I see sneering specious whataboutery is the order of the day.

    Dear Leader and his gang's scumbaggery is rather evident. His obstruction and witness intimidation is happening in real time now and you and yours remain on your knees to his greatness.

    Well, birds of a feather and all.

    LOL. Hillary? Hell, any one who knows what's going on knows he's Putin's puppet. After all, if trump doesn't stay in line Putin will see to it that trump looses all future financing and we know that Russia is the only place trump can get anyone to back him. If trump doesn't stay in line Putin won't let him build in Russia. If trump doesn't stay in line Putin will release the golden shower tapes.

    Schiff says Trump intimidated a witness ‘in real time’
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...ce_story.html#link-KWOGBYIA3UY55CC4LJHNPMMF6I

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) said that “we saw today witness intimidation in real time by the president of the United States.”

    His made his comments in response to Trump’s disparagement of Yovanovitch on Twitter to reporters outside the hearing room.

    “Once again, going after this dedicated and respected career public servant in an effort to not only to chill her but to chill others who may come forward,” Schiff said. “We take this kind of witness intimidation and an obstruction of the inquiry very seriously.”

    I laughed :) This must have been the "Double Secrete" thing the leftist have been goading us with.. I suspect the next big surprise will be something like Trumps says really bad words while playing golf!

    Or even worse, one of the old pens that when held upside down the lady's dress slides down and she is in a bra and panties *Gasp*
