It’s going to be a long, tortured week. Thus far, we have witnesses who have not really given anything that’s noteworthy in this impeachment witch-hunt. The quid pro quo allegations are still shoddy. Most of the witnesses are career government officials who simply don’t like President Trump. They disagree with him on policy, so they’re now part of a quasi-coup hatched by Democrats, the media, and members of the anti-Trump deep state resistance. Oh, but don’t call these people Never Trumpers. No. They’re nonpartisan, which is why they’re participating in one of the most partisan political vendettas in recent memory, with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, directing the effort.

Schiff has lied about having contact with the supposed whistleblower, who alleges that Trump threatened to withhold aid from Ukraine during a July phone call with their political leadership unless a corruption probe was opened into Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, who held a cushy job at an energy company, despite having zero experience. The allegation is that his $50,000/month board position was used to secure access to Obama officials. Burisma hired him in 2014; around the time daddy Biden was quarterbacking anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine.

Schiff’s staff and the whistleblower worked together and his office knew of the contents of the complaint before it was formally filed. Talk about collusion. This person is reportedly a CIA agent, a registered Democrat, and has worked with a 2020 Democratic candidate. Oh, yeah—this isn’t a partisan fishing expedition at all. And this guy didn’t listen in on the call; someone leaked the details.

During the afternoon session with Kurt Volker, U.S. special representative for Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, an adviser on the White House National Security Council, Schiff lied again when he mischaracterized the morning testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who thought Trump’s phone call with Ukraine was inappropriate, but not illegal. Schiff emphasized the latter, which is false.

Also, the Democrats threw this Hail Mary into the wind: all of the Trump-Ukraine drama is really grounded in bribery. The July phone call was a bribery exercise? Talk about moving the goalposts (unsuccessfully) and changing the playbook. Oh, and it was for the worse. Like Russian collusion being shot to death for being a total hoax, quid pro quo wasn’t sticking so they moved on to something else. It’s blowing up in their faces. Not once has bribery been mentioned prominently has it been the focal point in this mess of an inquiry. The Democrats’ impeachment clown show gets exposed more with each passing day. They have nothing.

The American Civil War was brutal. It remains the bloodiest conflict we have ever fought. It defined the nation and left an imprint that remains to this day, but it was for the better. For starters, the rigid regionalism that was heavily entrenched was washed away. Americans viewed themselves as…Americans, not Virginians, Alabamans, Georgians, or New Yorkers first. The U.S. as national identity was forged out of the ashes of this conflict. The United States was 34 states at the outbreak of the war. Its conclusion saw it become one nation. The notion of military officers resigning their commissions to join their state’s secession efforts is alien today. It was not back then. We share common principles; we’re also a country where folks move more frequently. There is mobility. But that doesn’t mean that a sizeable slice of the population that wants to annihilate the other won’t be any less destructive.

The ties that bind us together, the notion that we’re one country united, has been a buffer for the vicious divisions that led to our civil war. Yes, there were many other issues as well, but you can discuss that among yourselves. With recent surveys showing how liberals and conservatives value different cultural norms and view the other as alien, are we on the path toward another destructive conflict between the states? The lines would be different. It would probably be the coasts versus the rural interior instead of north versus south, but I digress.

Oftentimes, people roll their eyes when others spout new civil war talk or armed rebellion against the government, but nearly 70 percent of Americans think we could be reaching that point according to a new poll.

The Washington Examiner has more:

Partisan political division and the resulting incivility has reached a low in America, with 67% believing that the nation is nearing civil war, according to a new national survey.

“The majority of Americans believe that we are two-thirds of the way to being on the edge of civil war. That to me is a very pessimistic place,” said Mo Elleithee, the executive director of Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service.

And worse, he said in announcing the results of the institute’s Battleground Poll, the political division is likely to make the upcoming 2020 presidential race the nastiest in modern history.

In June of 2018, Rasmussen found that 31 percent of voters felt a civil war was possible within the next five years. Maybe this thing is being overblown. It’s a highly divisive time. Tensions and emotions are running high. Will cooler heads prevail? I don’t know. All I know is that this nation became after our first civil war. Slavery was abolished, and the national identity we know today emerged from one of the most brutal moments in our history.

Tim will have more on Project Veritas latest video where staffers of CNN are seen complaining about how the network has become and left-wing cesspool. Okay—maybe that’s a stretch, but they’re not happy with the liberal tilt the network has taken. It is one of the most prolific and visible anti-Trump networks out there. We all know this, but PV was able to get an insider to speak with CNN employees who confirmed our suspicions about the network. They’re liberal. They hate Trump. And President Jeff Zucker personally intervenes during interviews with members of the Trump administration in the hopes of catching them tripping up live on air. The Trump impeachment circus is front and center, and all of this just adds credence to the chant “CNN sucks.” And if that’s not indicative of how the liberal media has become in the Trump era, PV’s CNN insider, Cary Poarch, caught what they all probably feel about the president during his investigation. Gerald Sisnette, Field Production Supervisor at CNN, said he hoped Trump dies soon (via Project Veritas):

According to CNN insider Cary Poarch, “I want to chase the facts, like the motto that CNN put out earlier this year, ‘the facts first,’ that’s what I want the news to be. That’s what it should be. That’s what it used to be.” It appears a number of CNN staffers agree:

Patrick Davis, Manager of Field Operations at CNN: “…I hate seeing what we were and what we could be and what we’ve become. It’s just awful…I mean, we could be so much better than what we are…And the buck stops with him (Zucker).”

Scott Garber, Senior Field Engineer at CNN: “We used to cover news. We used to go out and do stories…But Trump is more important.”

Adia Jacobs, CNN Technical Operations Supervisor: “When Zucker took over it wasn’t until Trump that we ended up being all Trump all the time.”

Nick Neville, CNN Media Coordinator: “He (Zucker) basically said f**k all the other stories.”

Mike Brevna, Floor Manager at CNN:“It’s the Trump Network, dog. It’s like everything is all Trump…they not even thinking about anybody else. They sold themselves to the devil.”

Gerald Sisnette, Field Production Supervisor at CNN: “This is a story that’s not gonna go away…The only way this will go away is when he (Trump) dies. Hopefully soon.”

Will the network return to a sense of normalcy? It’s hard to say. Donald Trump has broken the minds of liberal America, maybe irreparably. As for the integrity of the network, that’s long dead. They’ve screwed up so many times in covering this White House. They can’t report him feeding koi fish with the Japanese prime minister accurately, they got played with the ‘Trump knew about his son’s meeting with the Russians’ story, and they totally flopped on the Wikileaks piece, where they alleged Trump and his inner circle got a decryption key for the trove of emails from John Podesta, then-chair of the Clinton campaign, and the DNC—only to end up correcting the ‘bombshell’ because the documents were already made public. This key was sent via emailed from a donor. If they merely just looked at the time stamp of the email and when Wikileaks published the DNC emails—this could’ve been avoided. It was simple. They didn’t do it because they’re at full froth in trying to get this president. With every failed attempt, it only reminds Trump voters to turn out next year. It’s an in-kind contribution to the 2020 re-elect. So, thank you. And to that staffer, sorry—Donald Trump isn’t going to die soon. He has one more election to win—and at this point, he will win it handily.
