LET ME TELL YOU . . . The Diplomatic World is a World of Hard-Core Tough Guys, where once in it, you’re Swimming with the Sharks. And if you want to Survive, you Better be as Tough and as Ruthless as the Toughest & Most Ruthless Sharks in the Water where you Swim.
You’re Probably Thinking that I’m Referring to American Diplomats Swimming in the Shark Tank of International Diplomacy – But I’m Not. I’m Referring to the Sharks in One’s Own Diplomatic Corp, where it’s Shark-Eat-Shark for Personal Advancement.
SO . . . For Marie Yovanovitch to Become a US Ambassador to an Important Country like Ukraine, in the Midst of Ukrainian National & International Turmoil – You Have To Believe That Marie Yovanovitch Has To Be A Shark Amongst Sharks.
So What’s With The Christine Blasey-Ford Soft-Little-Girl Voice?
I Don’t Know About You, since most People I Know, who have Worked for other People in one way or another, who have, in One Time in their Life been Let-Go (Fired, Replaced or Laid-Off) for Whatever Reason . . . Are not Fired Upwards or Laterally to a Golden Parachute Job with the Same Company.
But Yovanovitch Was.
If I had a Dollar for Every Time my Feelings were Hurt, or when Someone Tried to Hurt my Feelings . . . I Would Have A Whole Hell Of A Lot Of Dollars.
I Don’t Get It . . . Why Is Yovanovitch Even At The Impeachment Inquisition?
According to Yovanovitch, she Admitted Repeatedly that She Served at the Pleasure of the President, who – with Neither Cause nor Reason has the Undisputed Right to Appoint or Remove an Ambassador at His Discretion.
When Asked Repeatedly, if Yovanovitch Knew Anything First-Hand about a Slew of Accusations & Innuendo Levelled Against President Trump – Her Repeated Answers Were No.
When Asked Directly if Yovanovitch Knew that President Trump had Bribed the Ukrainians . . . Her Answer Was No. When Asked Directly if Yovanovitch Knew that President Trump Broke any Laws . . . Her Answer Was No.
When Yovanovitch was Asked Directly if the Javelin Anti-Tank Missiles were of Great Importance to Ukrainian Defense from the Russian Onslaught. . . Her Answer Was Yes.
When Asked if President Obama, the President who Appointed Yovanovitch to Become the Ukrainian Ambassador . . . Allowed the Issuance of Javelin Missiles to be Sent to Ukraine . . . Her Answer Was No.
When Asked if President Trump Gave the Ukrainians the Javelin Missiles . . . Her Answer Was Yes.
Make No Mistake About It . . . In the Parlance of my Youth, before the Politically Correct Culture Murdered Plain-Speak, Marie Yovanovitch would have been Described As One Hell Of A Tough Broad . . . Especially to Get to Where She Got to – Swimming With The Sharks.
I am Utterly Convinced that Pelosi is Ruing The Day she Capitulated to her Far LEFT Democrats, and the “Entertainment” News Media, to Begin the Impeachment Fiasco of America’s Duly Elected 45th President (Donald J Trump).
There’s A Famous Saying . . . When You’re Digging Yourself Into A Hole – Put The Shovel Down & Stop Digging. Pelosi’s Problem as I see it, is that even though I’m Certain that Pelosi Laments this Disastrous Decision to Literally Participate in this Coup D’état Of President Trump, I can’t see any Positive Resolution for Pelosi.
1 – Pelosi Allowed Her LEFTIST Base to Highjack the Itinerary of the Democrat Party, meaning that NONE of the Business of the American People has been Done for more than One and a Half Years, since the Democrats Won back the House in 2018.
2 – All the Promises Made by the Democrats – that they Would Work with the President for the Betterment of the American People if Elected, Can only be Described Based upon all that the Democrats DIDN’T DO . . . Was An Outright Lie.
3 – If Pelosi Doesn’t Hold the Vote to Impeach, which I Believe Pelosi Won’t for Various Reasons . . . Pelosi will have to Explain to the American People, but Specifically to her LEFTIST Base, why Pelosi Allowed the Democrat LEFT to Squander More Than 3-Years, on Doing all they Could by All Means Necessary, by Hook or Crook, to Overthrow a Legitimately Elected President.
4 – And if Pelosi DOES Decide to Progress with this Impeachment Scam to the Senate, the Republican Controlled Senate will Call Every Witness Imaginable, who has even a Modicum of Information into the Real Corruption of the Preceding Administration.
Imagine Schiff being Called as a Material Witness, where Not being Truthful will be an Option, because the Consequence of Lying to Congress in the Senate, Might Not be Protected, where Schiff is Otherwise Protected in the House.
And How will the Witnesses to a Senate “Trial” Avoid Perjuring Themselves, as they Try to Explain How they DIDN’T Participate in their Orchestrated Attempted Coup D’état?
If Pelosi Doesn’t Hold The Vote To Impeach – The Democrats Lose. If Pelosi Does Hold The Vote To Impeach – The Democrats Lose. Imagine, these are the Jerks Running the Richest, Most Powerful & Thus Far Freest Country in the World.
And to Listen to the Media, Fox News Included, President Trump was Either Stupid for Tweeting that Yovanovitch was a Horrible Ambassador . . . And/Or – the President was Guilty of Threatening the Witness (Yovanovitch) with this Tweet.
It’s Hard To Watch This Fiasco & Retain Any Respect For The Politicians & The Media. But what Makes this Disgrace Somewhat Palatable, is the Fact, that The Politicians and the Media Make it Easy for me to Paint a Picture of Why The Politicians and the Media are the Unbelievable Incompetents they Really are.
And Why It Is Important To Support Blogs Like Galganov.com.
Writing As Such . . . Anne, Stryker, April the Cat & I have Finally Arrived in Spicewood Texas, which is a Hop, Step and a Jump from Marble Falls Texas, which was one Very Long Drive (2,100-Miles), which took 9-Days & Cost an Awful Lot of Gas.
But We’re Here . . . Less than an Hour from Austin, and we’re More or Less Set-Up.
During all the Travel . . . I Never Stopped Following the News, Reading, Writing & Answering Emails along the Way when we Stopped for the Night each Day.
I Don’t Have To Remind You – I’m Sure . . . That in this Day & Age, when Truth & Objectivity Amongst the Politicians and in the Media are in Short Supply, it has Never Been More Important to Read a Source, which will go beyond the Media & Political Theatrics, which Everyone in North America are Subject to, So You Can Read The Truth.
