  1. Sad yes ,when your nation is directed to be a Banana republic ,meaning without integrity , without morals and just plan LAWLESS with a corrupt and useless , meaningless Dept of Justice . Hope the Russians do get to reverse everything Ronald Reagan accomplish with Russia . Truly a sad day for America and a destructive day for the once great republican party that use to vote for 98% of the time . Voted for no republicans on last election ,tried hard but could and if they (republicans ) do stand up for the rule of and integrity then I will NEVER consider too again whatsoever ! Period !

  2. Massive Pennsylvania factory layoff foreshadows Trump 2020 troubles

    A manufacturing recession may already be under way in vulnerable swing states, challenging President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to deliver blue collar jobs to his base.

    Out of the 21 states with manufacturing job losses so far this year, some of those experiencing the greatest percentage declines are states where Trump won by less than 5 percentage points.

    In Pennsylvania, the manufacturing sector lost 8,100 jobs. In North Carolina, it was 7,700 from that sector; and Wisconsin lost 6,500 jobs.

    The closure of Wood-Mode, a 77-year-old family-owned factory known for making the “Cadillac” of custom cabinets in rural Kreamer, Pennsylvania, is emblematic of problems facing the manufacturing sector.

  3. If you're a Patriotic American, it's more than a sad day alright..

    Since Donald Trump was elected Pres, Democrats and RINOcrats in Congress, the MSMedia have tried to not just undermine Trump's Presidency, let alone Democracy, but they have done all they can to destroy Pres Trump, the US Constitution, and We and the American people by any means necessary with manufactured false accusations, false evidence, aka Fusion GPS Trump Russia Collusion and Obstruction, propaganda smears campaigns, incendiary fake sanctimonious outrage, and now their fake Ukraine-gate allegations of a quid pro quo that never happened, aka Obama Hillary Democrat and RINOcrat DC Deep State sedition and treason coupe de' te.

    Meet the Democrat Banana Republic Kangaroo Court of Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff, AOC and company:

    Evidence, we don't need no stinkin evidence.. We don't need no stinkin whistle-blower to testify to about about a quid pro quo that never happened and never heard.. F the US Constitution, F Democracy, F the electoral will of the people.. all we need is Congressional Committee Hearing behind closed locked door secrecy meetings, visceral hate and lies to target and destroy Pres Trump, via partisan line impeachment.

    Democrats do hereby not vote to have an official impeachment process, to impeach U.S. Pres Donald J. Trump behind locked closed door secret back room partisan committee meeting doors (where democracy dies in the dark) for the crime of being "guilty of the crime of "not being guilty".. of our Hillary, Obama DOJ-FBI, Fusion GPS false Russia collusion, corruption, and obstruction of justice hoax, aka "Operation Crossfire Hurricane".. for exposing the abuse of govt power and corruption of the Obama Biden Admin.. along with jay walking, spitting on the grass, felonious tweeting, using your constitutional plenary powers to pardon people.. but most especially for Making America Economically, Financially, Militarily, and Internationally Great Again

    When the radical anti-American Marxist Leftists-aka Democrats, and their DC GOP Ruling Class Est RINOcrat (fake Lincoln Republican) allies can't defeat Pres Trump, We the American people at the ballot box, they smear, denigrate, personally attack Pres Trump with their standard manufactured false accusations, and most especially with their false sanctimonious outrage drivel .. from their Obama Hillary DOJ-FBI Fusion GPS false manufactured frame job Russia collusion and obstruction hoax, to this inane Ukraine-gate trip.

    All the while Pres Trump has created the greatest massive growing economy in US history – Economic Financial Prosperity Growth for the working men and women across the country from Mainstreet to Wall Street, with massive Tax Reform-Across the board Corporate and Individual Taxes Cuts, doubling family deductibles.. Massively slashing Obama's suffocating Regulatory State.. Renegotiated International Trade Deals with Canada, Mexico, India, Japan, S. Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, China – imposing tariffs.. Resurrected US Steel and Aluminium Manufacturing industry in the Rust Belt States from the brink of death. Oil, Natural Gas, and Coal Energy Production at record breaking all time levels, becoming Energy Independent, all of which has reduced unemployment to lowest levels for Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and Women post WW2.

    Democrats and RINOcrats – You have 13 months left to continue to politically and personally try to destroy Pres Trump, our Constitutional Republic, but come Nov 2020, it will be you who will be destroyed, for your own arrogance, hate and utter contempt for America, Americans will be your inevitable downfall.

    Make no mistake about it, your Stalinist Tribunal impeachment scam will utterly fail, as did your Russia collusion and obstruction hoax scam, because it's all a lie.

    Come Nov. 2020, We the American People will be deciding your fate, and it will not be pretty !

  4. Bill Taylor is my new hero, I'm happy to have serve in the 101st airborne division like him. Now it F… ing time to take down 💩 Trump and his evil men's/Russia to save what left of our great country before he get us all killed. It not maga it M.A.D Make America Dead is what Trump truly want.

  5. If Republicans can trash Boy Scout Bob Mueller, they can trash Bill Taylor. The sad irony is that at the same time they are supporting the vile, fake bone spur trump.

  6. SO WHAT YOU ALL ARE SAYING IS:
    President #DonaldTrump is guilty of "CORRUPT ABUSE OF POWER" by hijacking "Congress' pre-approved military support aid" already set aside for Ukrainian defenses against Russia, to extort Ukrainian president Zelenskyy to admit publicly that Ukraine would collude and help with #BenedictDonald's own re-election campaign? That's "FINANCIAL KIDNAPPING AND EXTORTION." No way that our BELOVED president and head of the GOP can do this. You must be LYING!
    #MAGA
    #TrumpstersToTheEnd

  7. Before Trump's defenders post anything, they should read this about the prosecutor they claim Biden, and only Biden, wanted fired to protect his son https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viktor_Shokin Trump's supporters need to do a little more reading and a lot more listening to others outside the Trump/Fox News bubble.

    With that, even if Biden did use his position to get his son a cushy job (which is unethical and should be against the law, just as giving political donors positions in government should be), it was still illegal for Trump to ask Ukraine for a favor that would benefit him politically. Even if Trump didn't extort the favor out of Ukraine, it's still illegal to ask a foreign country for help winning an election, and for those who say Trump's duty is to investigate corruption, you now have the burden of proving that Trump had a history of conducting investigations into corruption that would not benefit him personally/politically.

    And let's be honest, if Trump was concerned with corruption, he wouldn't have handed out so many government positions to campaign donors, many of which stole money from the taxpayers. He wouldn't have used his presidency to funnel tax dollars into his businesses. And come on – is it so much of a stretch to believe he'd ask a foreign country to interfere in our elections when he openly asked Russia to hack the DNC during a campaign speech?

  8. Trump is a High-Level Russian Covert Operative successfully inserted as the US President by Vladimir Putin. Trump is a Traitor and works for Putin. All his moves are Pro-Russia, guided by the Kremlin (KGB/FSB), and Anti-America.

  9. Thanks, Mr. O’Donnell, Representatives Lewis and Welch, and Ms. Farkas.
    Yes, Ambassador Taylor truly showed up what monkey wrenches the Trumpie Bunch has tossed into the works, in their “service” to our foremost adversary, Vlad Putin!

  10. Trump thought that when he became President, whether or not it was materially aided by the Russians (and it probably was), he would turn our democracy into a kleptocracy the way Putin moved the fledgling democracy created by Yeltsin into one beginning in 2000. Trump envisioned becoming uber-wealthy in the criminal state he wanted to create, much the same way Putin did in becoming the world's richest man with net worth over $275 billion. Trouble is, corrupted as we are, Trump ran afoul our democratic institutions and the career patriots who serve them. Thankfully, it is the Bill Taylors of our country, not anyone related to the Cult of Trump, who are helping salvage our country from the criminals who currently trying to destroy our democracy for their own personal agendas.

  11. Republicans still question this…The shame they bring to the USA equals the affront this creature… aka the President of the United States does to the nation daily. America, rotting from the top.

  12. Its been sad…maybe Congress should debate and define some more…How much longer ?? CONGRESS is doing nothing, for anybody, anywhere. Just ask Ukraine or the Kurds….
    Extremely embarrassed to be an American. SMFH

  13. trump don't believe in no phony Constitution. he do what he wants. get over it! ain't no body got America's back as long as GOP holds trump's beer while he swings a bat at democracy and law.

  14. The whistle blower is nothing now that every American has first hand knowledge about the call we are all witnesses and are Trumping the whistleblower

  15. The fact that the Mueller investigation was denied, denied and denied by Trump and his cronies and here he reached out to Ukraine for political gain is quite sickening.

  16. Annulment of this administration, everything that Trump has signed be null and void. Like he never took office would be my recommendation. How long will it take to undo the damage?

  17. Relative to Ukraine, besides his dirt-digging on the Bidens, Trump would have primarily Russian interests there, because the Russians have been Trump's biggest backers and customers (buying condos and properties) in business in the last 10 years, after US banks failed to lend him money. If Trump had his way, he would remove all sanctions on Russia, revive the Exxon oil deal, and hand Ukraine to Putin on a platter by cutting off aid to them completely. While that isn't happening, Putin is delighted with the US abandoning the Kurds in Syria, and he applauds the division in the US government and society, the weakening of US alliances and trading power in the world, all because of Trump.

  18. Don't forget all the dough the administration spent on the upgrade of Sondlands residence. Over a million. Quid pro quo.

  19. Bye Felicio! (grab yourself by the – – – – – before you walk up that jet for the last time, turn and wave with them stank fingers)

  20. I have been sad since trump was elected. Now this traitor, this criminal, and his republican boot lickers will
    do his best to destroy the career and reputation of a veteran and patriot like Bill Taylor. Truly shameful.

  21. Busy watching RED DAWN….watched the remake also and NOPE didn't see any real Americans in it as these guys fought the Russians instead of selling out to them. HMM Think this movie should be in the Fantasy category now.

  22. It is very simple.. The Emperor in Star Wars used his influence to corrupt a 'not to sure' Jedi. This guy's are not Jedi's obviously. What is curious is how can a clown (and I really have no other way of describing america's sitting commander in chief) project his wishes to those who should be able to sensibly forecast an outcome. The pure but dark jedi's are reverting (they are testifying in case you have lost me) and they have a new path to follow. The main players are staying and obviously will stay until the end. Does this not question how the subservients just below the Emperor did not successfully secure the support of the dictator… Yes it is a film reference, and yes it was pretty sad. Although the reference has been used there is always a flaw. With the Jedi it was democratic (talk things through, build your defense and act in the interest of the masses etc etc) With the Emperor it is power and supreme dominion! All hypothetical,. There is one sole reason for why this will not play in favour of Trump. The Emperor in that hypothetical situation never ever mentioned financial gain. I will give a nut case the understanding they can dominate. They are nut cases, but to strategically assume you can make dictator and hope that the docile masses will not pick up on it along the way?! Is malicious evil. You cannot be insane and gather wealth, they do not mix! Look at the joker in Dark Knight, it is simple enate human action!!!.

  23. So, they all agree: the whistle blower, the chief of staff mulvaney, trump, Ukrainian officials, documentation, ambassador Taylor..they all agree on what happened: trump extorted a bribe from a foreign prince, trump used money from taxpayers, approved by congress, like it was HIS money to do that! And held vital help from a US ally….to fight the Russians out of their territory…
    The only conclusion one can find is, that trump is giving putin some head all the time when erDOGan is not busy with trump's black hole….maybe both

  24. If this was legit and due process it would be on display. Its done secretly so you know its all complete b.s. Also Democrats are on tape doing what they accuse Trump of and hypocrites ignore it.

  25. Bolton and his cohords need to understand that their days are done and just come clean. They will never again come close to power all they can be from are talking empty heads.

  26. This is why Trump's doctor claimed he had bone spurs so he did not serve in the military. How can America question this public servant?

  27. 32% of the American population is holding the Whole World hostage right now. With a lot of assistance from the Senate Republicans!

    “Cancer”

  28. United States General Flynn traitorously literally worked for the Government of Turkey while advising the President-Elect of the Inited States, and became, for real, the National Security Adviser of the USA! #SonOfTreasonFlynn pocketed WAY More cash on the pineapple than Hunter made legally on a publicly known company's payroll. It has been a sad day every day Flynn remains un-court-martialled, un-sentenced, and un-willing to own his garbage publicly and tell the truth. What troops could ever trust an army that so allows their Generals to betray? Turkey × Putin +Assad – USA = Duhn ♤Lv

  29. They need to storm the walls and start removing toxic people from positions that have been telling false information to the American people,after knowing that lies are to be used to try and stay in power,and now people that know the truth,need to speak up about such toxic corrupt people in every office held by public service employes,

  30. Meanwhile the Democrats continue to seek a standard of proof that exceeds the accused openly admitting to everything. The only thing keeping the establishment Dems in the game is Trump's fantastic stupidity.

  31. Pretty amazing. People don't want to hear anything negative about the guy even if it's coming from those he has appointed or have worked with closely. Doesn't matter how true or damaging. Pretty mindblowing when u think about it.

  32. "Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light." George Washington

    "Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism" . George Washington

  33. American media has earned its doubtful reputation. "Could, would,might, If, alleged, scenario, unpack, double down, chaos, destroyed" just a few in American WANK WORD BINGO.

  34. This is what happens when you admire a DANGEROUS president. I can't say you PUT HIM in office but you would have if there were enough of you. Don't you UNDERSTAND how awful trump's decisions have been for YOU? trump doesn't care. He never has cared. YES…THIS IS A TERRIBLY SAD DAY as all have been since this maniac took office.

  35. The legacy President Obama has left behind is the destruction of the Republican Party.Racism and fear of black and brown people will will see the the end of this administration. The universe do not like ugly and one cannot plant peas and reap corn.
    May the universe protect the people's of America from this administration.

    '

  36. The Republicans are starting to show how shameful party is its a disgrace to the nation which most of them stands behind a criminal history won't forget this act

  37. Its absolutely horrifying that the Republican party is participating in the destruction of the USA. How much more can this country take? Its been chaos upon chaos since Trump took office. Charlottesville, Stormy Daniels, backing Putin against our own intelligence agencies, Manafort, Cohen, Jeff Sessions, turn over after turn over, Barr's misrepresentation of Mueller's report, and now this. Not to mention the lies Trump tells every time he opens his mouth. Why are we allowing this lunacy to continue?

  38. I hope they get this guy (trump) because after all the stuff he has done, he is still in office, get his butt out of there. I am relying on the 2020 election.

  39. What is it that the republicans do not understand with the present findings and obvious evidence emerging? I'm from Sweden and English is not my first language and I have absolutely no problem whatsoever to understand the facts reported in the news!

  40. Hey, if you are any kind of good American, trump is the worst thing to happen to the former USA with the exception of the inferior beings that support his fetid filth.

  41. Maybe Donald Trump really is going to drain the swamp? Him and the rest of the corrupt GOP will all be going bye bye.

  42. When trump first took office & began his lying, committing crimes, underhanded policies…..he started the chant that anyone criticizing him was a "Democrat who hated him" It wasn't true , like all things he says but a lot of his brain dead cult followers believed it. God arranged for this man of honor to be the one he's ultimately up against. It is not a standoff between Republicans & Democrats but of good against evil. Honor & honesty against the father of lies.

  43. The sad day was November 6, 2016………I posted a pic on FB of a chick decked out in Mourning Clothes!! America died that day!!
    On another note: He has LOST Michigan!!! Go Blue…..

  44. Hello don't forget TRUMP heroic efforts in Vietnam war. In trumpland he is a hero, and he deserve purple heart and medal of honor. Trump says this in public also he deserve purple heart for what he has done to this country.
    Yes I will get a medal behind bars with nr to his cellar door

  45. What about the GOP ignoring the truth and interfering in the investigation, it’s obstruction of justice, witness tampering.
    Who’s going to hold the republicans accountable, weak Dems won’t do crap. 😡

  46. i hate seeing my country suffer but it warms my cockles to see trump suffer he has been a very bad person even before he became an adult and i'm as old as he is i've read news about him for decades and i knew this was going to end badly for trump he was elected he's been a coward all his life and facing what is to come i am fairly certain trump will leave the country before he is indicted and possibly before he's is impeached

  48. Prisondent drumpt should be impeached for disgracing the office, especially for being a part of the russion invasion

  49. The US went from being to the example of Democracy to the example of corruption. What a legacy. Well, it was good while it lasted.

  50. Trump just turns people bad, or he picks bad people to begin with. Either way this is not how to run government. Trump is a failure and his policies are flawed, but he can't admit it. We all pay the price for the foibles of this administration.

  51. I truly hope President Volodymyr Zelensky and the people of the Ukraine are watching what they can of Amb. Taylor's deposition and that we're still a Nation of laws and principles that give Amb. Taylor the opportunity to speak openly his experience in their fair Nation. Not everyone here are Trumps. I extend my deepest apology to the people of Ukraine for our system inflicking Trump and Putin on them.

  52. The national security of the US was compromised at the very beginning of Trump's administration, when he bragged to two Russian diplomats at the White House of matters which had security implications, not only for America, but also for America 's allies. The die was cast.

  53. The only way that i see a way out for little orange boy trump,
    to get himself out from underneath, of this incredibly entangled
    web, that he has woven for himself, is to play the CRAZY 😜 CARD.

    His outstanding eccentric outlandish narcissistic behavior is
    enough to deem him not fit to continue in the capacity to lead
    this Republic.

    This I believe will be befitting to the Nation and the presidency.

    The 25th Amendment is his only way out and would land him
    to do time in the LOONY-BIN.

    His criminal behavior and abuse of his office will be served in
    a place he would regret to have not mess with the prestiges and
    honorable position of running this nation and looking out for the
    best of his constituents and his fellow Americans.

    The following steps to take afterwards is to hold a public judicial
    inquest into the Senate members faculty body and see were their
    loyalty to their country lies, since they all took the oath into office,
    to uphold The Constitution of the United States of America 🇺🇸.

    To understand were their ideals are to country honor and loyalty
    to nation and people.

    To also explain to the Military Tribunal Courts why the Senate
    members did not stand up to his type of fascist behavior and
    uncivilized decorum of state ettiequte representing 243 years
    of a newly birthed superpower Nation.

    This would be the beginnings of "DRAINING THE SWAMP" Slogan
    and Make America Great Again For All People's Of This Here USA 🇺🇸.

  54. What is so not surprising or shocking to this story is that it is all so believable, because we have watched how Donald Trump works from the very beginning.

  55. Before he volunteers to leave he will barricade himself into the White House. The Authorities will have to take Donald Trump out.

  56. Everything trump touches died ; can trump touched himself ? That will be wonderful , the whole world will be happy 1st. Melania 2nd Pence , the only person that will NOT be happy is Lindsey .

  57. BILL TAYLOR MAKES ME THINK OF O'L SKULLY THE GUY THAT LANDED THE PLANE ON THE RIVER THAT TIME! THOSE ARE THE KINDA GUY's THAT TAKE ONE LOOK SEE WHAT NEED's TO BE DONE AND JUST DOSE IT!!!

  58. The PLUS side of this for the average American, is that we are getting to know what MAGNIFICENT people represent the US abroad, like Ambassador Bill Taylor, and former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. Hopefully, Trump will be ousted soon, and perhaps his VP, too.

  59. Go AIRBORNE …. you get to save your country. Thank god for that airborne paratrooper. I fought with the 101st in Vietnam 67-68….

  60. The goal was not getting dirt on Biden. The goal was to destabilise Ukraine. It's Putins goal. Trump just bungled it up.

  61. God only knows what he's been up to all along. and I am sure it didn't just start with this one impeachable event. There must be someone who knows ALL of his illegalities. I pray he or she comes forward. I would.
