Thanks to Rep. Sylvia Garcia, the barn door now is open on the Bidens and the Democrats

Much of the day Thursday at the impeachment show was spent on how innocent the Bidens are of any wrongdoing re: Ukraine.  Rep. Sylvia Garcia had fancy charts and graphs to demonstrate her point: there was absolutely nothing wrong with Hunter Biden trading on his name to make $50–80K a month on the board of a verified corrupt gas company in Ukraine, nor was there anything wrong with Joe's quid pro quo, that the prosecutor investigating that company be fired or a billion dollars in aid would not be forthcoming.

Perhaps Rep. Garcia should have read Peter Schweizer's new book Profiles in Corruption before assembling her PowerPoint lecture.  The Bidens are among the most corrupt politicians in the U.S.  And Schweizer's sources, unlike those of our mainstream media, are not anonymous but hard-copy documents.  She might have waited a bit longer for the documents now released that show that Obama met with Ukrainian prosecutors, U.S. embassy officials, and faux whistleblower Eric Ciaramella in January 2016 to discuss Burisma and Hunter Biden's role there.  George Kent, the Democrats' own witness, had voiced his concern about Hunter Biden's position there but was rebuffed by a Biden aide.  Ciaramella?  Rep. Garcia's overarching defense of the Bidens will very likely come back to haunt the congresswoman from Texas, as will Biden's memo to the media not to report on or address the "conspiracy theory" that there was something corrupt about his family's dealings with Ukraine and Burisma.  Biden obviously thinks he can control what the left media will investigate; he thinks this because it has always worked in the past.  That is probably why the NYT never reported on the Obama WH meeting with the Ukrainian prosecutors who were investigating Hunter Biden and Burisima and had been since 2014.

Garcia then contended that President Trump made "the phone call" in July, the transcript of which we are all familiar with, because he was threatened by Biden's rise in the polls!  Does any sentient person believe that?  Of course not.  If there is anyone who knows that polls are meaningless, it is Donald Trump and his supporters.  And Joe Biden was never, will never be, a threat to Trump's re-election.  He does not know what state he is in from day to day.  He thinks we don't need "standing armies" and that we should be "helping" communist China!

The man is dangerously oblivious to all things relevant to our national security.  It is hard to imagine Biden even going the distance and becoming the Democrat nominee.  So Rep. Garcia's entire theory is seriously flawed.  We also all know, as do they, that what Trump was concerned with was not the 2020 election, but the 2016 election, since Ukraine's interference to benefit Clinton was beginning to be reported, specifically by Politico in January 2017.

But Garcia opened the door even wider than Schiff did to further discussion of the Bidens' financial malfeasance.  They will have a difficult time explaining, let alone defending, the many get-rich-quick schemes in which they were involved.

Meanwhile, the bobble-heads on CNN and MSNBC wax rhapsodic on Schiff's theatrical debut: "dazzling" (Jeffrey Toobin), "powerful and forceful" (Wolf Blitzer), "virtuoso performance" (Joe Scarborough).  There are more, and they are all distastefully obsequious.

This insincere kind of "[f]lattery corrupts both the receiver and the giver" (Burke).  Schiff and his fans on the Left should not take any comfort from such benighted, self-serving sources. 

Then there is Rudy Giuliani.  The splenetic left media love to mock him, but he is about to drop a boatload of info on the corruption in Ukraine that is going to land on not Trump, but the Bidens and all those diplo-thugs who think they should be running American foreign policy rather than the president.

The most mystifying aspect of the Left's obsession with removing President Trump from office is what exactly is its motivation.  Yes, prior to the election, they were certain they could derail Trump, so yes, they were stupefied when Hillary lost.  But everyone knows by now that the Russia hoax was just that: a hoax cobbled together with a cast of characters from the Clinton campaign and her hired guns (Fusion GPS and Perkins-Coie) to the reprobates at the upper realms of the FBI, the DOJ, and the CIA.  None of their investigations has yielded fruit, and still they keep digging the hole in which they have already found themselves.

What is it they so maniacally fear about this man who, in spite of them, has accomplished so much good in just three years?  Is it his promise to drain the swamp which would mean uncovering all their shady money deals that have for generations made them all wealthy while in office? Perhaps. It is more likely that because he is not a politician but an authentic American patriot who believes this country was founded on great principles, is still a grand and successful experiment, and that but for the intervening presidencies of Marxist socialist utopians like Obama, can be great again. How dare he! What an upstart, they think! We run this place, not some self-made interloper from outside the beltway or Ivy League.

Whatever the reason for the Left's psychopathy regarding President Trump, they have now gone so far over the edge of sanity it is quite likely they will be unable to come back as a legitimate party. The fact that Pelosi and Schumer have allowed the odious, prevaricating and self-aggrandizing Adam Schiff to carry on like his home is in a tree and that only one or two Democrats have objected to their impeachment crusade to unseat the man proves the party is lost forever. That horse has left the barn, as has the one that will take the Bidens down and out. How will it all end? "It's the natural law of karma, we create our own destiny by our own thoughts, words and deeds for good or ill. (Midsomer Murders)
