Haha wtf is this shit. This is what the whistleblower said.

"I was not a witness to most of the events described... However, I found my
colleagues' accounts of these events to be credible..."

:lol: :LOL: What a joke.

This is no joke and you'd better watch it on calling Democrats traitors, Canuck. The whistleblower learned about the call and its improper filing during the routine course of doing his job. At least 6 White House employees have corroborated the whistleblowers claim. The goose is cooking. Every Republican on the hill behind closed doors is shocked at this. McConnell has already told the White House that he will not help them. That's why the documents and witnesses are being released so quickly. Deep State Barr tries to buy the documents. Trump hints that CIA agents should be killed. Phone calls with Vladimir Putin are intentionally covered up.

Near as I can tell there's plenty of rare air in the conversation timeline separating the condition (... first I'd need you to do something for me) and the eventual alleged Biden request.

Many subjects were discussed during that intervening period, any of which could be construed as areas satisfying said condition (if you could do this first, I'll release the funding).

If just one of these discussion points is deemed potentially-relevant to the condition laid down, it's case closed AFAIC, 'cause it would then require an illogical stretch of the imagination to tie a discussion point occurring later in the timeline to it.

IOW, I predict another nothingburger.

Rytard is a pair of clown shoes like Pencil neck Schiff. :lol: :LOL: Did you see Schiff reading his own fake transcript in front of Congress? These people are out of their minds delusional.

Did you hear the good news Rytard? Kasich says no one in Ohio is talking about this.

Also it looks like shifty eyed Schiff had the whistleblowers accusations a month ago. This was all orchestrated as per usual.

Yeah Schiffs fake transcript just shows that even he doesn't think there was any crime otherwise he would have just read the original .

What? Like the DNC did with Fusion GPS and Trump?

Or like the FISA warrants they used to spy on Trump’s campaign. Is that what you mean by investigating a political rival?

They are literally making stuff up. The media is falsifying the transcript beyond repair. That’s how they operate. Lie like hell because the people watching them are too stupid to realize what’s going on. They just believe everything they tell them.

Let's face it, if every politician or POTUS in history were scrutinised and investigated as much as Trump is, they'd all be in deep doodoo.

Historically they've turned a blind eye to everything but the issues that somehow leak and become public knowledge, at which point they act in an effort to maintain the illusion that Washington is corruption-free. Trump's appointment has always threatened their cosy little echo chamber; it's a wonder they can get anything done given their obsession with following the guy like a hawk.

Oh hang on... they don't get anything done; just look at the candidates' pool. That's what you get if you don't mind your own house. It's the same in sport - obsess about the opposition at your peril. :loco:

Comey Under DOJ Investigation For Misleading Trump While Targeting Him In FBI Probe

Former FBI Director James Comey has been under investigation for misleading President Trump - telling him in private that he wasn't the target of an ongoing FBI probe, while refusing to admit to this in public.



According to RealClearInvestigations' Paul Sperry, "Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will file a report in September which contains evidence that Comey was misleading the president" while conducting an active investigation against him.


You were wrong. You frequently are.

You're throwing a lot of crap on the wall there dude.

The US has collected about $16 billion in Tariffs imposed on Chinese imports by President Trump.

Back to the OP's topic though -
The White House should absolutely let Mueller testify. The DOJ/ Bill Barr has already said he's not going to stop him from going up to Capitol Hill to do so.


While Trump has suggested on Twitter and in public comments that tariffs are somehow being charged to or paid by China, economists say that’s misleading. U.S. importers are responsible for the duties, and ultimately U.S. businesses and consumers pay through higher costs. "It is inaccurate to say that ‘countries pay’ tariffs on commercial and consumer goods — it is the buyers and sellers that bear the costs," said Ross Burkhart, a Boise State University political scientist. "Purchasers pay the tariff when they buy popular products. China’s government and companies in China do not pay tariffs directly. Tariffs are a tax on imports. They are paid by U.S.-registered firms to U.S. customs for the goods they import into the United States. In many if not most cases, those costs are passed on to American consumers, whether it’s directly on the products hit by the tariffs or through an impact on U.S. companies who use raw materials hit with tariffs. Meanwhile, tariffs could mean that producers pay more, as materials that are used to make products sold in the United States rise in price. Those price increases are likely to be passed on to consumers as well. It’s possible that U.S. consumers could find tariff-free products elsewhere, but in many cases, a suitable product may not be available, or may be more expensive or of lower quality.

Chinese goods aren't hit by tariffs until they get to the US, where middleman corporations known as importers of record actually pay what the government technically calls "customs duties." U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) collects the tax on imports. The agency typically requires importers to pay duties within 10 days of their shipments clearing customs. The federal treasury does get paid when tariffs are levied. But Chinese exporters don’t make the payment. The importers do — usually U.S. companies.

"If the U.S. imposes a tariff on Chinese televisions, the duty is paid to U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the border by a U.S. broker representing a U.S. importer — say, Costco," Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center, wrote in September. "The Chinese government pays nothing."

A tariff is a tax on an import. For example, let’s say there is a 25 percent tariff on washing machines imported from China. If an American company imports a washing machine from China, it will have to pay a tax to the federal government amounting to 25 percent of the price. The question of who pays that 25 percent depends upon the circumstances. On face value, the importer pays the tariff. While profitable companies might simply absorb that additional cost, they could also pass it on to others. American importers might also raise prices, so manufacturers and consumers pay the cost instead—and there’s evidence that this is already happening.

U.S. business executives and economists say U.S. consumers foot much of the bill through rising prices. There is plenty of evidence that prices are starting to climb as a result of the trade war -- which means, actually, US buyers are paying. According to a report from the New York Fed, increased US tariffs on China will cost the typical US household $831 each year.

Actual data on tariffs and trade from 2017 and 2018 showed that foreign firms didn’t lower their prices at all, so the full impact was born by U.S. firms and consumers. A paper published in March by economists Pinelopi Goldberg, the World Bank’s chief economist, Pablo Fajgelbaum of UCLA, Patrick Kennedy of the University of California, Berkeley, and Amit Khandelwal of Columbia Business School also found that consumers and U.S. companies were paying most of the costs of Trump’s tariffs. After factoring in the retaliation by other countries, it concluded the main victims of Trump’s trade wars had been farmers and blue-collar workers in areas that supported Trump in the 2016 election.

In addition, tariffs could also produce delays or price spikes that spiral across the economy, since the economy is now tightly interwoven into complex and time-sensitive "supply chains." And any slowdown in the supply chain could mean layoffs for producers and a hit to the broader U.S. economy. American companies may not have the capacity, in the short-term at least, to offset the reduction in supply of certain Chibnese goods by increasing their own production. Instead, they’ll raise prices.

Walmart Inc, the world’s largest retailer, and department store chain Macy’s Inc have warned that prices for shoppers will rise due to higher tariffs on goods from China.

A March 2019 paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research, which looked into the data around the impact of Trump's tariffs, concluded that the costs were almost entirely borne by American consumers and importers. The study's authors found "no impact so far on the prices received by foreign exporters." Moreover, American producers had responded to the reduction in Chinese competition by raising their prices. Those price rises led to a reduction in the real income of American consumers of about $6.9 billion during the first 11 months of 2018. “Our results imply that the tariff revenue the U.S. is now collecting is insufficient to compensate the losses being born by the consumers of imports,” the study found.

The bottom line: Tariffs push prices higher, consumers spend less money, businesses sell fewer products, and the American economy takes a hit.


I’m just bumping this because here is another example of Rytard literally copying and pasting everything, trying to pull it off as his own intellect.

I copied the first sentence of Rytard’s post and searched it on Duckduck Go and guess what? It’s from a Bloomberg article word for word.

Here the article. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-05-07/trump-china-tariffs-who-pays

Yup. This ass clown is a joke.
