TKC MUST READ!!! CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER KEEPS WATCH OF PREZ TRUMP IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY WHILST FIGHTING FOR CONSUMER DEBT PROTECTION!!!



This Saturday we share another glimpse of national political drama as seen from Kansas City along with important work to protect the public from debt collectors.

Here's the word from Kansas City's highest ranking elected official . . . Checkit:

Congressman Cleaver: "I am watching impeachment testimony with thoughtful deliberation that it deserves"

As I’m sure you are aware, this is a week, unfortunately, that will be written about in American history books for generations to come.

This week, the United States House of Representatives opened public hearings as we uphold the solemn responsibility of investigating whether the President of the United States abused the powers enumerated unto the him by the constitution, and whether or not those offenses rise to the level of impeachment.

The misconduct alleged—that the President bribed and extorted a foreign government into interfering in our presidential election—is of the utmost seriousness for any democracy, and I can assure you I am watching the testimony with the thoughtful deliberation that such a moment deserves.

I’m hopeful that, as a United States citizen with a say in this outcome, you will give these hearings the attention they deserve and will voice your opinion following the conclusion of testimony from all witnesses, many of which are nonpartisan career public servants.

While I know the impeachment hearings have been a focus of the media, the work of Congress on behalf of the American people has not stopped. I’m proud to let you know that a bill I introduced, the Stop Debt Collection Abuse Act of 2019, was passed unanimously out of the Financial Services Committee this week. This legislation would protect American consumers from predatory debt collection practices by closing federal loopholes and bolstering protections for consumers . . .

Bill Maher says Trump impeachment hearings could give voters 'investigation fatigue'

"Real Time" host Bill Maher wondered Friday night whether this week's televised Trump impeachment hearings could cause "investigation fatigue" to set in among the public. The House of Representatives held two open-door hearings into President Trump's conduct with Ukraine, with U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent testifying Wednesday and former U.S.

Looking For Punchline

The comically obvious corruption missing from Trump's impeachment hearings

Public impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives ramped up Friday with the testimony of Marie L. Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. Her story was the most compelling yet, detailing her long and often-dangerous diplomatic career, as well as her bewilderment at being abruptly shoved out of office by President Trump.


Philosophy Of Push For Prez Trump Impeachment

With impeachment, America's epistemic crisis has arrived

Back in 2017, I wrote a piece speculating that the Mueller hearings might bring America's epistemic crisis to a head. That crisis involves Americans' growing inability, not just to cooperate, but even to learn and know the same things, to have a shared understanding of reality.

Fox Business host lashes out at 'big dumb baby' Trump for attacking Yovanovitch during impeachment hearing

Fox Business host Lisa Kennedy on Friday slammed for his tweeted attacks on former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine during her public testimony on Capitol Hill, calling the president a "big dumb baby." "Should the president be tweeting at her mid-hearing? No, it makes him look like a big dumb baby," Kennedy said on air.

7 reporters recount a historic week in impeachment

History was made this week as public hearings began in the Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. It was difficult, but not impossible, to overlook this simple fact amid the blizzard of breaking news and onslaught of accusations, counter-claims and Twitter tirades. The House speaker accused the president of bribery.

Thoughtful deliberation? This after you spent a week or two on a press junket talking about how all of the people who supported your political career were racist. Hmmm. Mr. Congressman is either on mental decline or already there. The people are not going to forget your bad behavior. Deflect to Trump who apparently will be sitting in the Oval Office until the expiration of his term because Democrats don’t seem to have the evidence they thought they had to remove him. Maybe Mr. Congressman should sit quietly and not participate in the destruction of somebody else’s political career, especially considering all of the destructive things he has said about his constituents.

Angela K wake up and understand not all black people are your friends. I wouldn't hire Cleaver that racist prick to watch over my dog taking a dump. Cleaver makes you blacks think he is all about looking out for you when he's only looking out for himself. And Cleaver being on a bill having to do with debt collecting is big time conflict of interest.

"The president can have whom he desires doing diplomatic work for the country.”

That says it all right there. A whole day wasted because someone lost their position. Ukraine president wanted her removed guess everyone wants to forget that part of her being removed. I'd have removed her too just for being the snooty bitch she appears to be.

"How did that make you feel?" This brave victim was asked.

They had to ask her that, because she had absolutely nothing to contribute except her glowing feminine victimhood.

“Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.”

Nothing wrong with this tweet.

One of Barack Obama's first acts as President was to terminate all ambassadors appointed by George Bush. I know the Democrats will agree that he should have been impeached for that.

Yavanavich's opening statement, sounded exactly like what you would expect from a pissed off ex girlfriend who just got dumped.

Obama fired EVERY SINGLE FUCKIN DIPLOMAT HIRED BY BUSH ON HIS FIRST DAY IN OFFICE.

The ex girlfriend that you dumped, would really like the law, maybe a Police officer, a judge, SOMEONE! to force you to keep taking her to dinner, buying her shit, giving her the remote control and supporting her while she sits home watching "The View", or maybe Charley's Angels.

She was an ongoing, pain in the ass, that should have been fired in 2017.

9:02 comment hits a GRAND SLAM!

"I am watching impeachment testimony with thoughtful deliberation that it deserves", stated Congressman Carwash.

The same "thoughtful deliberation" I've used for decades as a "Reverend" who promotes the targeted genocide of minority babies by groups like Planned Parenthood.

The same "thoughtful deliberation" that led me to support Hillary Clinton for President in 2008, over Barack Obama.

The same "thoughtful deliberation" that I used to violate a personally guaranteed legal loan contract and subsequent court order directing me to repay a taxpayer-funded Small Business Administration loan of over $1 million dollars.

The same "thoughtful deliberation" that led me to arrange political patronage jobs for my wife, daughter, and son.

The same "thoughtful deliberation" that I use when publicly calling for civility in politics, while equating those who oppose the MLK name change as KKK members and President Trump and Republicans as White Nationalists.

The same "thoughtful deliberation" that caused me to NOT disclose that I'd been diagnosed with early-onset dementia 10 years ago. The medicine has helped slow the progression, but anyone observing me can see how my speech, memory, and reasoning have significantly declined. I owe a huge debt to local media for covering up my deficits.

9:23 and that makes it all good and okay?

Besides you are wrong. Weird

Yovanovich was in the U.S. Foreign Service and wasn't made an ambassador till 11/2004 long after Reagan was out of office.

Yovanovich screwed herself out of a job when she got to attacking officials in Ukrainian making enemies and resulting in Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asking her to be removed. There was some he said she said crap which had to do with the Clintons and we all know that the Clintons need looked at much harder than they have in the past. Yovanovitch was an Obama administration and to me that's good enough reason to get rid of her if her line of thinking was more in line with Obama's

Listen to Bill Barr's speech a couple of days ago, concerning the separation of powers and the erosion of Executive power at the hands of Legislative and Judicial overreach. This does NOT bode well, for the scofflaws, traitors and and seditious, Progressive poltroons who over the last 3 years, have betrayed this country and it's people.

The 24/7 News Cycle will consign this unworthy, preening, overweening kleptocrat to her rightful place (Probably in a really nice, 500K home, paid for by taxpayers, right next door to another great American hero, Lois Lerner.) in obscurity. Her 15 minutes is up. With any luck, Cleaver will move to D.C. for good, where he belongs with all of his bureaucratic butt buddies and rent a room from her.

Next week, at the latest the week after, the IG Report, a penultimate note, the precursor to the coda, that will be Durham's Indictments of many of the previous administration's criminals, will be out.

Seven hours of testimony from the dimwits results in nothing.

Thirty seconds is all it took for the republicans to destroy their conspiracies.

Stewart: "I would now feel compelled to ask you, Madam Ambassador, as you sit here before us, very simply and directly, do you have any information regarding the president of the United States accepting any bribes?"

Yovanovitch: "No."

Stewart: "Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the United States has been involved with at all?"

Yovanovitch: "No."
