  1. If it is not already set as rule it should be. If the House isn't in order stay away from the Senate until you have your stuff in order. In the former Impeachment trials we didn't have the ability to exchange information as freely… I am not hearing or seeing anything impeachable yet.

  2. IF PRESIDENT TRUMP IS INNOCENT THOSE WHO VOTED IN FAVOR OF IMPEACHMENT SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE HOUSE … Like would be the case if the Impeachment is upheld… Seems like the person pointing fingers are the ones guilty of high crime's… Do we still hang for treason?

  3. Oh my friggin LORD … This Adam Shiff guy is in opposition because ??? I hear him say one thing while what is actually in place is exactly what he says is not… This guy and any others who decided to impeach President either need to show US why … If they are wrong they are guilty very possibly guilty of TREASON…

  4. President Trump was in Switzerland… 🤔🤔🤔 The Swiss supporting US financially when the colonization by European descendants began … I have been curious about how involved the Swiss are in OUR politics and I am guessing I will never learn the answer to my curiosity… 🤔🤔🤔🗽🗽🗽🧐🧐🧐🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  5. Trial evedince being allowed is the only way to be a trial in America… "New" evidence??? If the House impeached President Trump what ever evidence was available at the time used to move US this direction is all that should be used… How is the President supposed to defend himself??? How are we supposed to defend ourselves???
    #FairTrial 🗽🗽🗽🧐🧐🧐🗽🗽🗽

  6. Schumer implies at 29:38 that Trump seeks to turn the clock back to claim the privileges the US fought the War of Independence to prevent the Head of State claiming in the days of King George III.
    I submit Trump wants to go FURTHER back, to the absolute immunity overthrown in England the previous century, in 1688, when it became the first nation on earth to force its monarch to submit to the rule of law. Trump's obstruction of justice would have been considered the illegal actions of a tyrant in 1776 England. And interestingly, King Geo III was several times sidelined from the throne for mental health issues which in the context of Trump, do not look particularly disqualifying.

  7. McConnell omits a key difference between the Clinton impeachment and this one: In Clinton's case, the Senate (as well as the House) was held by a GOP majority, ie the other tribe from the person being impeached.
    So it is eminently relaxing and understandable (from a GOP perspective) to make the rules halfway through the Senate process, because they knew they could make them to their own notions of fairness.
    The burden of fairness is much heavier when a Senate is trying (and desperate to acquit) one of their own, and a pre-agreed process is a bastion against unfairness in such situations.

    It's also notable that significant numbers of Senators from both sides voted against their party line in the Clinton case. The presumption of bi-partisanship was already a stretch (largely thanks to the best part of a decade of Gingrich systematically kneecapping all its proponents from his side) but it was still a possibility, back closer to that golden time when steam engines and dinosaurs roamed the earth….

  8. The facts are coming to light that the democrat party has been Americas enemy ever since they lost their right to own human beings as property, they have been responsible for horrific crimes against American and Americans since the Civil War, they started the KKK, they directly influenced the Nazis in Germany, not one democrat voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and it was passed, even though they brought a huge resergence of the KKK to help them squash it by intimidating everyone who voted for it, they are actively working with the UN to take away you American rights like free speech and guns, etc, they are directly responsibe for Antifa and are currently trying to overthown a duly elected President. Trump threw a huge kink in the last election. Their plan was for obama to rule the world thru the UN and hillary was to rule America. Not one of these things is an action of a friend of America, but our worst enemies.

  9. Adam Schiff – confirmed lies:

    1) Remember, this is the guy who said, ‘We have more than circumstantial evidence that there was coordination between Trump and Russia, and Russia influenced the election.’ That turned out to be false.

    2) Adam Schiff said that the Nunes memo was false. Michael Horowitz told us no it wasn’t; it was exactly right.

    3) Adam Schiff said you can trust the FISA court. Michael Horowitz said last month that no, you can’t; they lied to the FISA court 17 times.

    4) Adam Schiff told us we look forward to hearing from the whistleblower. Adam Schiff said we’ve had no contact with the whistleblower. Turns out to be a lie.

    5) Then just yesterday, the story where he misrepresents to all that Mr. Z is Mr. Zelensky, when in fact it was Mr. Zlochevsky.

    6) Schiff sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler last week summarizing a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas, an indicted former associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas ‘continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,’ citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: ‘trying to get us mr Z.’ The remainder of the exchange — which was attached to Schiff’s letter — was redacted. But the evidence strongly suggests “mr Z” was not Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky but rather Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Burisma.

    7) So, yeah, when Adam Schiff talks about (Ambassador Gordon) Sondland, he doesn’t tell you that was all presumption. Mr. Sondland terstified to that, when Congressman [Mike] Turner asked him, under oath, at the hearing

    But now we’re supposed to believe him, in spite of that history, where seven important things he had exactly wrong?

    It would help if the American people were exposed to the full truth. Alas, the biased media act like such propagandists for the Democrat Party that all many Americans are hearing is whatever the Democrat Party wants them to believe, regardless of whether it’s fact or fiction.

  10. We need to get this President out of office no rich guy is going to have the best interest of the poor people and the middle class. All they're doing is in reaching their own pockets and giving us a bunch of fake news and using our hard earned tax dollars to do it

  11. In traditional education, a pure free market is idealized as self-regulating, without the need for outside interference, such as government regulation, touting unobstructed trade between "voluntary" parties, with prices determined through supply and demand.

    But "pure" fully autonomous, self-regulating market economy is actually not possible in real life, even though many are still convinced that it could be.

    Simply put, such self-regulatory market forces have a limited range of effect and once factors of fraud, desperation, irrationality, and the host of detrimental EXTERNALITIES come into play, the whole thing falls apart into disorder and abuse, much like how the global world market is today.

    This is where infinite and endless debate occurs over how much interference government should impose. In fact, most of the major economic schools divide themselves along these lines.

    Terms such as "neoliberal," "laissez faire," "deregulation," or "nonintervention" are common to those who feel the market should be more "free" in order to be more economically efficient.

    Conversely, those who argue for increased regulation/state controls, unions, welfare, and increased safeguards tend to be categorized along the slippery slope of derided pejorative bowels of market "socialism."

    At the epicenter of the debate is the degree of faith in MARKET SELF-REGULATION. Adam Smith, the 18th century philosopher largely considered the father of this worldview, coined the now famous term INVISIBLE HAND to suggest that people, acting selfishly in their economic behavior, will paradoxically produce outcomes that improve society as a whole, with what laid the foundation for GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM THEORY.

    This theory sought to explain the functioning of the market as a whole in terms of supply, demand, prices, and argued for a resulting balance to some acceptable degree without intervention, preventing things like banking failures, extreme wage differentials, goods shortages, and other imbalances that have ironically been long constituents and constants in capitalist societies.

    A notable example was the 1999 financial deregulation of US banks through the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, introduced after the Great Depression in 1933 to help ensure commercial banks would no longer get involved with investment banks, pursuing risky speculation with their customers' assets. However, once repealed, after about $300 million in lobbying efforts, commercial banks turned around and engaged in credit-default swaps and other high-risk derivatives, paving the way for the 2008 global financial crisis.

    Not only did the 2008 financial crisis trigger millions of home foreclosures, but an estimated 10,000 suicides between 2008 and 2010 have also been linked to the related "Great Recession" across America and Europe, along with 500,000 deaths worldwide from cancer due to lack of medical attention as a result of financial loss, unemployment, and/or loss of public healthcare benefits.

    THE BELIEF IN THE "FREE MARKET," AS IT IS STILL POLITICALLY TERMED ACROSS THE WORLD, IS A CRITICALLY IMPORTANT MYTH TO MODERN SOCIETY. THE PUBLIC'S FAITH IN THE MARKET SYSTEM, WITH ALL ITS CLAIMS OF "FREEDOM" AND "EMPOWERMENT," SERVES TO PROTECT THE STATUS QUO, DOMINANCE HIERARCHY, AND, MOST IMPORTANT, THE VAST SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC PRIVILEGE ENJOYED BY THE ELITE MINORITY.

    It is a system that paints the illusion of a non-totalitarian social order that engages in no real coercion or violence against the population.

    YET THE TRUTH IS THAT THE MARKET IS AT BEST ONLY A MILD IMPROVEMENT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF HISTORICAL SYSTEMS BASED UPON SCARCITY, SELF-INTEREST, COMPETITION, AND DOMINANCE.

    ANCIENT SLAVERY, FEUDALISM, MERCANTILISM, AND ALL POST-NEOLITHIC SOCIAL SYSTEMS THUS FAR HAVE BEEN FOUNDATIONALLY ELITIST IN THEIR MECHANISMS AND LOYALTIES, SHARING THIS COMMON THREAD OF STRUCTURAL VIOLENCE.

    While there are political, religious, and other social aspects to the broadest definition of structural violence, one only needs to look at only the aspects linked to the market economy's organization structure and its derived incentives to see massive SOCIAL POLLUTION.

    Social pollution, or the socioeconomic form of structural violence that correlates to millions of deaths a year through poverty and suffering while arguably being completely unnecessary, with the conclusion that this form of violence kills and harms more than all wars, dictators, genocides, and other direct kinds of violence put together.

    In the words of scholar Joel Kovel, poetically encapsulating the procedural nature of this ongoing yet rather silent tragedy:

    "NEVER HAS A HOLOCAUST BEEN CARRIED OUT SO IMPERSONALLY."

    To explain the outline and flow of causality, I'll start by restating that a social system based on property, exchange, labor-for-income, competitive self-regulation, and the capacity to profit from scarcity and suffering, sets in motion this predictable array of outcomes.

    The cyclical consumption needed to keep employment up, along with the need for economic growth to recover from previous contractions, powers the machine's structure. Earthly resources are inventory to be exploited, along with human labor. At the same time, negative externalities flourish, and increasingly so, as our technological capacity grows, often being used for the wrong purposes such as war.

    This is all embodied in the market structure, like the tiny seed that sprouts a towering tree.

    Again, it is often argued that capitalism is a specific mode of market behavior, separate from other forms of market economies. This is a false distinction. While economists often talk about true "free markets" or differentiate between "state capitalism," merchant capitalism," and even "market socialism," these are all variations on a core, foundational theme.

    The tiny seed that grew to a towering tree may produce various fruits, but no matter how diverse they seem, the genetics of that tree remain the same, stuck in monetary exchange and scarcity.

    The system can only produce a limited range of societal variation, along with a limited range of resulting social psychology — such as deprivation, stratification, prejudice, mental illness, violence, and exploitation and oppression.

  12. funny obama did that, he has ever right.. do your research, no laws were broken.. However Hillary destroyed drives with hammers/ obstruction/ treason, and her husband sodomized a young girl while president while in the white house.. additionally the bidens were under investigation by the NObama administration previously for the same thing.. so again.. the president has every right to investigate corruption before he spends millions of my tax dollars. He is cleaning up the swamp, thats how stupid you are..

  13. Had Hillary Clinton “done her job” as secretary of state, the four Americans killed in Benghazi in September 2012 would still be alive, two members of the security team said Monday during their speech before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

  14. Didn't Democrats rush to start the impeachment only to slow it down to a screeching halt? Allowing plenty of time to get their evidence in order, however now they are throwing a tantrum because they've basically came unprepared.

  15. Psalm 12 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
    I speak these words over King Cyrus / Trump

    Psalm 12

    1 Help, YAHUAH, for no faithful one remains; the loyal have disappeared from the human race.

    2 They lie to one another;
    they speak with flattering lips and deceptive hearts.

    3 May YAHUAH cut off all flattering lips and the tongue that speaks boastfully.

    4 They say, “Through our tongues we have power; our lips are our own—who can be our master?”

    5 “Because of the devastation of the needy and the groaning of the poor, I will now rise up,” says YAHUAH. “I will provide safety for the one who longs for it.”

    6 The words of the YAH are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, Be purified seven times.

    7 You, YAH, will guard us;
    you will protect us from this generation forever.

    8 The wicked prowl all around,
    and what is worthless is exalted by the human race.

    Almighty Father YAH, ELOHIM AINEEL! Grant that all conspiracies against me be set as naught; turn away from me all danger and injury, and thine is the kingdom and power. Amen – Selah!
