Trump caught on tape demanding the firing of the Ukrainian Ambassador.

Earth to Liberal MSM - Trump can fire Ambassadors with out cause any time he feels like it, as many times he wants. She was an Obama holdover, it was dumb of him not to fire all Obama appointments day one.

Trump’s impeachment defense starts today.

Trump unveils new Space Force logo which looks a lot like Star Trek’s.

This may have been on purpose since Star Trek takes place in the Earth’s future. They are based at Star Fleet Command in San Fransisco.

It would only make sense that Star Fleet Command is an out growth of the US Space Force and that the Star Trek logo is an out growth of the US Space Force’s logo.

I noted in Star Trek that San Francisco there was no homeless encampments, no pooping on the sidewalks, did they ship them off planet? Send them to live with the Romulans?

I have some snowflake friends that reference Star Trek as model socialism. At that point I remind them that every character in Star Trek is self responsible (just like Capitalists). The people promoting socialism offer free stuff and no responsibility. They worship the elite and promote snowflakes.

Carry on Space Force!

Then of coarse Star Trek is only a TV show. There is always that.

I've used that analogy at work too.

I like to point out that whenever they leave the ship, they have their weapons on them. Makes antis head explode.

Not in a million years could I imagine Hillary stumbling out of her armored car to shake hands with working people. Not likely any of the current Democrat candidates would either.

John Bolton has written a book. In order for it to be released the publisher sent it to the NSA for review to make sure no secret information is disclosed.

The book was recently leaked by the NSA to the New York Times. The New York Times has published an article saying the book says Bolton is saying that Trump wanted Ukraine to investigate the Bidens and wanted to hold up foreign aid until they complied. Trump denies Bolton's claim. Many in the Senate want Bolton to be a witness in the Senate impeachment trial.

One of the witnesses in the House impeachment inquiry Alexander Vindman is a military officer and worked in the White House was born in the Ukraine and received a purple heart. He testified against Trump and many were criticized for slamming him because of his military service.

His brother also works in the Military and for the NSA, one of his responsibilities is reviewing authors works for before publication.

Supreme Court rules 5 to 4 that Trump’s plan to deny green cards to immigrants who will need Government assistance.

More reasons for the Dems to want Trump revived from office.

Race relations and 'position' of minorities better under Trump than Obama
Satisfaction with race relations in the United States has jumped under President Trump, the latest indication that the Republican is making significant inroads with blacks and other minorities in advance of the 2020 presidential election.

New details from a Gallup survey on satisfaction said race relations and the “position” of minorities under Trump are far higher than they were under President Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president.
Jeepers, Trump's not any better at being a white supremacist than he is being a Russian stooge. ;-)

Speaking of which:

Standoff: U.S. troops block Russian forces from capturing Syrian oil field

Interestingly the news about the US forces blocking Russian access to the oil fields seems to appear only in the Washington Times, some middle eastern news outlets, and various conservative political sites in the US. Newsweek did mention it as part of an article entitled "Dueling roadblocks increase tension."
