Rep. Jordan: Facts Have Always Been There In Impeachment Probe

According to Republican congressman Jim Jordan, the facts have always been there regarding the Democrats’ closed-door impeachment inquiry. While speaking to reporters Monday, Jordan reiterated the transcript of President Trump’s phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart displays clear facts that Democrats seem to ignore.
House Democrats began releasing transcripts from those closed-door impeachment hearings on Monday, but Jordan has accused them of purposely leaking portions of those transcripts to the media in recent weeks.

“The facts have been clear from the get go, those four fundamental facts that are never going to change, but we actually have said we want all the transcripts out versus what has taken place over the last three weeks,” he stated. “Which is selective leaking of part of those transcripts by the Democrats, so we wanted them all to come out.”

Transcripts from hearings with ambassadors Kurt Volker and Gordon Sondland will be released Tuesday.

Trump Presses Mexico On Security After Nine Mormon Women And Children Killed

November 5, 2019

By Lizbeth Diaz

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s president said he would discuss security on Tuesday with the United States after President Donald Trump urged Mexico to “wage war” on drug cartels following the killing of nine members of a U.S.-Mexican Mormon family in the north of the country.
The victims were three women and six minors, and President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he would speak with Trump about possible cooperation on security, provided Mexico’s sovereignty were upheld. But he suggested he did not believe that foreign intervention was necessary.
The dead belonged to the LeBaron family from a breakaway Mormon community that settled in the hills and plains of northern Mexico decades ago.  Trump tweeted early on Tuesday that he would await a call from Lopez Obrador, urging him to accept U.S. assistance.
“The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!” he wrote.  “This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth,” Trump said.  Mexico has unleashed its military in a war on drug cartels since 2006 but despite the arrests or killings of leading traffickers the campaign has not succeeded in reducing drug violence. In fact, it has led to more killings as criminal groups fight among themselves.
The government has registered more than 250,000 homicides in the last dozen years, most of them related to the drug war. When asked about Trump’s offer of help, Lopez Obrador said he would welcome help but did not want Mexico’s independence compromised.  “I’ll speak with President Trump to thank him for his support, and to see if in cooperation agreements there’s the possibility of getting help,” he told a regular news conference.
“I don’t think we need the intervention of a foreign government to deal with these cases,” he added.
The government is investigating the motive for the killings, which took place on Monday on a dirt road between Chihuahua and Sonora states, both bordering the United States. Mexico Security Minister Alfonso Durazo said there was a possibility of mistaken identity, given the high number of violent confrontations among warring drug gangs in the area.
“The convoy made up of suburban vans could have been confused with criminal groups that fight for control in the region,” Durazo said alongside Lopez Obrador. A video posted on social media showed the charred and smoking remains of a vehicle riddled with bullet holes that was apparently carrying the victims when the attack happened.
“This is for the record,” says a male voice in an American accent, off camera, choking up with emotion. “Nita and four of my grandchildren are burnt and shot up.”  Reuters could not independently verify the video.
Five children were also injured and transferred to hospitals in the United States, U.S. and Mexican authorities said.
Mexico has suffered a series of attacks in recent weeks, shocking even for a country inured to years of drug war violence. The most notable incident was a military-style cartel assault that forced the government to release a leader of the Sinaloa Cartel in October.
Chihuahua and Sonora state governments issued a joint statement saying an investigation had been launched and additional federal and local security forces were being sent into the area near the border between the two Mexican states.  A relative of the family, Julian LeBaron, described the incident as a “massacre,” saying some family members were burned alive. In a text message, he said other injured members of the family were being transported to Phoenix, Arizona for treatment.
He said four boys, two girls and three women were killed. “We don’t know why, though they had received indirect threats. We don’t know who did it,” he said. Several children who fled the attack were lost for hours in the countryside before being found, LeBaron added. “My cousin was murdered with her children in the truck,” said Alex LeBaron, another relative.
In 2010, two members of the Chihuahua Mormon community, including one from the LeBaron family, were killed in apparent revenge after security forces tracked drug gang members. The Mormons had suffered widespread kidnappings before that.  U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Christopher Landau, who traveled to Sonora earlier on Monday for unrelated work meetings, said he was following the incident closely.

President Trump On American
Family Killed In Mexico: U.S.
Stands Ready To ‘Wage War’

OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 8:57 AM PT — Tuesday, November 5, 2019
President Trump said it’s time for Mexico to wage war on the country’s drug cartels with the help of the U.S. In a series of tweets Tuesday, the president weighed in on the recent killing of an American family in Northern Mexico. It happened Monday about 70 miles from the U.S. border.
The suspected cartel attack left at least six children and three women dead as well as several others injured. Five of the victims were discovered in a charred SUV and four others were found in a separate unidentified location. President Trump has called the killings “vicious” and assured the U.S. stands ready to get involved in efforts to battle the dangerous cartels.
Family members of the victims say they are in complete shock.
“We just can’t believe that this has actually happened to our family, this seems like a bad dream. We just knew their vehicle was on fire and there was bullet holes all around it, and that they were all dead. My sister was in one with nine of her children, and then my sister was in one with her baby.” — Leah Staddon, family member to victims
Surviving family members say they are in touch with the American consulate in Mexico as local authorities continue to investigate the attack.

UPDATED 7:45 AM PT — Wednesday, October 30, 2019
Former Vice President Joe Biden is on the receiving end of a new super PAC, which is apparently being run by a registered foreign agent. According to records filed with the Federal Election Commission Tuesday, Larry Rasky is now heading the ‘Unite the Country’ PAC. Department of Justice records classify Rasky as a lobbyist representing the government of Azerbaijan’as of April 23, 2019 of this year.
Back in August, Politico reported Rasky was exploring the possibility of going into business with Hunter and James Biden — the younger brother of Joe. This comes as the Bidens are already facing allegations of pay-for-play politics.
Rasky is a long-time confidante of the family, showing his support for the former vice president during his previous run in 2008. Rasky’s firms have previously done work for other countries such as Bangladesh, Japan, Hungary, Congo, and Serbia. The latest PAC will likely hinder the Biden’s claims that their influence is not for sale.

Trump: US ready to 'wage war' on drug cartel 'monsters'

Trump said Tuesday the U.S. is ready to “wage war” on the drug cartels and “wipe them off the face of the earth” after at least 10 members of a prominent Mormon family were killed in an ambush attack near the border between the two countries.
In a series of tweets, Trump said the U.S. was willing to aid Mexico in “cleaning out these monsters” and that “sometimes you need an army to defeat an army.”
This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth. We merely await a call from your great new president!
Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump
A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing. If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these…
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
….monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively. The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!
“We merely await a call from your great new president!” he said
The dead included three women and seven children, including two infants, according to a report by the Arizona Republic.
Three vehicles traveling between the Mexican states of Sonora and Chihuahua were attacked by the gunmen, CNN reported Tuesday, citing relatives of the victims and statements from Mexican authorities.  The Arizona Republic said the victims were members of La Mora, an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that is located in Sonora state about 70 miles south of Douglas, Ariz.
Sonora Governor Claudia Pavlovich Arellano tweeted that she is collaborating with the investigation.
The Republic said the three mothers driving the cars were taking themselves and their children to a wedding in LeBaron, another Mormon community.

*How Did Democrats Get Here?*

*How Did Democrats Get Here?*
by Karin McQuillan,American Greatness,11/2/19

Democrats have become the party of thuggery, from the top leaders abusing President Trump as a traitor and criminal, to the Antifa black shirts beating up Trump supporters in Democrat cities. The ginned up hysteria over Trump’s election has grown with Trump’s triumphant successes with the economy and national security.
The Democrats’ motivation for the fake impeachment crisis is obvious—they have no platform and no candidate that gives them a path to the White House. What is less obvious is why three years of ugly, crude propaganda, threatened and actual violence, wearisome agitation and lies is playing so well to previously normal Democrats.
The Democrat Party has veered far left very fast, without any pushback from within the party. Their voters have turned, seemingly overnight, from normal American citizens to a deranged mob after Trump’s blood. This weird transformation is normalized by blaming it on Trump himself, and the shock of his victory. A moment’s reflection shows how superficial that derangement explanation is.
Trump did not make the Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders a powerful political force in 2016. He is not responsible for Elizabeth Warren’s desire to confiscate people’s wealth. Trump did not cause the majority of Democrats to reject freedom of speech and religion, or to prefer socialism to capitalism. How did those radicals become so powerful that they now dominate the party leadership?
There is nothing in what Trump has done as president that explains the unconstitutional attacks against him. It is the reverse—the attempt to frame and entrap President Trump and his team as traitors with Russia, was begun by the Obama DOJ, FBI, CIA and White House before his inauguration. It was the Obama Administration’s actions that necessitated the all-out attempt to delegitimize President Trump before he could expose them.
President Trump did nothing to provoke the Obama intelligence community framing him as a Russian traitor. You have to look at President Obama to understand this unprecedented attempt to overturn a presidential election. Our press, including most of the conservative press, has always been unwilling to focus on Obama, and the Marxist forces he unleashed in American politics. We can’t even use the word Marxist without the taint of supposed “McCarthyism.” Better to use vague terms such as “radical” or “Left,” or better still, avoid the deeper issues by calling the war against our president “derangement.”
The Mueller investigation and the phony impeachment would have been impossible without #TheResistance insisting on radical partisanship. The propaganda war against Trump hasn’t touched his loyal, grateful, voters, but it has turned normal Democrats into mindless haters.
There is nothing so terrible about President Trump that he can’t be treated fairly and rationally by the press and his opponents. Derangement is a choice. It is a strategy. It is true that President Trump often breaks norms of how politicians talk. He is rude. He does troll his opponents and purposely make them lose control. At the same time, his policies and his achievements are centrist; they would have been acceptable if a President Clinton proposed them.
Trump is obnoxious to his political opponents, but he is also warm, charming, and funny. He is loving and protective towards ordinary Americans of all colors, genders and sexual preferences, new citizens and old. He has off-the-charts common sense and patriotism, and plain speaking.
The president’s reality-based policies on energy, regulation, trade, job creation, and China have made each of us more prosperous and safer. These are not distant achievements. Trump has made the lives of ordinary people better in concrete ways that can’t be hidden by Democrat talking points, by bringing the working class and unemployed jobs, fighting crime, and controlling our southern border. And he would have done more if not for Democrat obstruction. He has done more to help the poorest Americans achieve a better life than any president in living memory.
Ordinary Democrats’ extreme hatred of Trump and his supporters is far from normal. Insisting we enforce immigration laws on the books is not the second coming of Hitler. Democrats genuinely believe it is. They talk themselves into nonsense, while Trump is gains popularity among Hispanic voters (who made up 30 percent of the audience at his rally in New Mexico). The fact that Presidents Clinton and Obama both urged securing our borders makes no difference. When Trump obeys American law, he is evil.
I asked a neighbor, a Democrat moderate, why he hated President Trump. His answer: Charlottesville.
The idea that Trump praised neo-Nazis after Charlottesville is an outright lie about what the president said. It is easily rebutted by the videos and transcripts, but—typical of the propaganda-inflamed mob—rebutting the lie makes absolutely no difference. My neighbor “knows” Republicans are racists and nothing will shake that belief.
This is a huge winning propaganda stroke for the Democrats. My neighbor actually agrees with the president’s policies on the border, on China, knows the economy is doing well, can see the country is at peace—none of that matters, he thinks Republicans are deplorable racists.
We accept Democrats despising Republicans as racist as though it were normal, but we shouldn’t. Republicans believe what every decent American believed during the Civil Rights era—that everyone should be treated equally regardless of race, period.
The Democrats’ conviction that half the country, led by Donald Trump, is white supremacist in its outlook is just plain weird. Trump was elected by winning over Midwestern voters, the salt of the earth, who had previously voted for Obama. Trump’s rhetoric on race has been unifying, not divisive, typified by his favorite phrase, “whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.” Remember his great line in his inaugural address: “When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. The Bible tells us, ‘How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.’”
Trump’s actions on race follow his rhetoric. Whether it is with mainstream economic opportunity zones in the inner city, or his response to the black communities desire for incarceration reform, or his economic policies which have helped minorities more than any other segment of the population, his policies show a deep commitment to helping the black community.
Yet good-hearted Democrats “know” Trump is divisive, and that it is their party which brings the country together.
The number of Democrat liberals fighting back against the libel, the hate, and hard leftists taking over over their party is miniscule. Alan Dershowitz comes to mind. I know there are a few others, but I can’t recall them at the moment.
What is going on?
“How evil is the left? This evil,” John Hinderaker wrote after the “appalling” Antifa attacks on Trump supporters and police in “nice” Minnesota. But not a single Democrat politician or media voice finds the violence appalling. Just the opposite—a Democrat legislator participated in the riot, while others, including U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), tweeted their approval.
“Are there any moderate Democrats left?” Hinderaker asked.
It’s an important question. Why aren’t Democrats fighting for their own party—and our country—against the hostile takeover by the Left?
