THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR JUNE 11, 2022 AT 6:13 PM

Paul Plante says:

And believe me, people, not only what a long strange trip this Biden Ukraine situation has been, but what a long, strange trip it continues to be, which thought takes us back to the statement above that Joe Biden’s man Amos Hochstein is a former member of the supervisory board of Ukrainian Naftogaz, from which he resigned in October 2020 by writing an opinion piece that highlighted the return of sabotage in the form of corrupt forces, let’s delve into that matter a bit more by first going back to when Hussein Obama was in the white house and Joe Biden was Hussein’s executive deputy president, and a White House Press Room statement dated November 21, 2014 and titled “FACT SHEET: U.S. Assistance to Ukraine,” where we had as follows from Hussein’s propagandists, as follows:

The United States remains firmly committed to supporting Ukraine as it works to establish security, restore economic stability, strengthen the rule of law, advance the fight against corruption, and carry out democratic and constitutional reforms.

end quotes

Democratic and constitutional reforms?

Ukraine?

You’re kidding me, because right now, Ukraine is under martial law with constitutional provisions suspended while political parties the ruling Biden-friendly government doesn’t like because the Biden regime doesn’t like them have been outlawed, denying their followers a voice in what is becoming a fascist government with the full backing of our tax dollars being provided to it by Washington, D.C.

And as to that bit about advancing the fight against corruption, according to the Hochstein op-ed, that fight is a losing battle.

Going back to 2014 and the Obama press release, it continues as follows:

The United States stands with the Ukrainian people and their choice of democracy, reform, and European integration.

In pursuit of these objectives, Vice President Joe Biden announced today in Kyiv, Ukraine that, pending approval from Congress, the White House will commit $20 million to support comprehensive reform in the Ukrainian law enforcement and justice sectors, including prosecutorial and anti-corruption reforms.

end quotes

Anti-corruption reforms?

Joe Biden?

Yeah, right!

Going back to that press release once more, we come to this relevant item with respect to corruption in Ukraine and Amos Hochstein’s op-ed, to wit:

We are supporting Ukrainian efforts to enhance its own energy production, including through technical assistance to help restructure Ukraine’s national oil and gas company, Naftogaz, and through the introduction of new technologies to boost outputs from existing and new conventional gas fields in Ukraine.

end quotes

And there, it would seem, we have Hussein Obama and Joe Biden both tied to this Naftogaz, and that brings us to a Radio Free Europe article on May 04, 2021 by Todd Prince, a senior correspondent for RFE/RL based in Washington, D.C. who lived in Russia from 1999 to 2016, working as a reporter for Bloomberg News and an investment adviser for Merrill Lynch and has traveled extensively around Russia, Ukraine, and Central Asia, titled “Ukraine’s ‘Internal Threat’ On Blinken’s Plate After Naftogaz CEO Fired” where we learn as follows, to wit:

When U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken visits Kyiv this week and meets with President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, he will seek to demonstrate strong Western support for Ukraine from the external threat of Russian aggression.

Behind the scenes, however, there could be tension between the two over what Blinken often calls Ukraine’s “internal threat”: corruption and weak institutions.

end quotes

Timelines, people, timelines are all important in determining the flow of history from past to present!

In 2014, Hussein Obama and Joe Biden were bragging up them spending U.S. tax dollars to clean up corruption in Ukraine, and seven (7) years later, in 2021, we see corruption in Ukraine as still being an issue.

Going back to the RFE article, we have more as follows, to wit:

One week before Blinken’s expected arrival on May 5, Zelenskiy’s government did exactly the kind of thing that has raised questions in the West about Kyiv’s dedication to reforms, which observers and officials say are needed to make the system strong enough to withstand persistent pressure from Moscow.

The government dismissed Andriy Kobolyev, the respected chief executive officer of Naftogaz, the state-owned energy company that has been at the center of some of Ukraine’s biggest corruption scandals over the past three decades, using a legal loophole to get around Western corporate governance practices it had promised to uphold.

end quotes

And this is the same corrupt lash-up in the corrupt ****-hole of Ukraine under Joe’s puppet Zelensky that Joe Biden is continuing to pump our tax dollars into, while telling us that we have a duty to stand in solidarity with the Ukrainians while suffering economic harm as a result.

Getting back to this bull**** story of Bidenism in action, we have more Joe as follows:

Analysts said the stealth move, coming amid an outpouring of Western support for Ukraine in the wake of a big Russian military buildup on its borders and in occupied Crimea, smacked of direct government interference in the management of a state-owned company, a practice that has had dreadful consequences for the Ukrainian economy in the past and which the West is trying to wean Kyiv off.

end quotes

The West is “trying” to wean Kyiv off?

In which century do they expect that to happen?

Going back to RFE, we have more to consider, as follows:

Kobolyev’s dismissal provoked pointed criticism from the European Union and the United States, which have tied financial aid to Ukraine to improvements in corporate governance at state-owned companies and overall anti-corruption efforts.

Philip Reeker, acting U.S. assistant secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, called the move “troubling” during a phone briefing with reporters on April 30 and said the United States will push Ukraine’s leaders to “respect transparent corporate governance practices.”

end quotes

The United States will push Ukraine’s leaders to “respect transparent corporate governance practices?”

Oh, really?

But I thought that was what Joe Biden and Hussein Obama were doing back in 2014?

Looks like a pretty slow process to me, because the Ukrainians seem slow learners while the Biden team are poor teachers, which again takes us back to RFE, as follows:

The Naftogaz CEO’s ouster was just the latest in a series of actions by the Zelenskiy administration that have raised concerns about a rollback of the reforms achieved since Moscow-friendly President Viktor Yanukovych was pushed from power in 2014 by the massive Maidan protests, which were prompted largely by anger over corruption.

Blinken’s response to the situation surrounding Naftogaz will send an important signal to Zelenskiy about just how far President Joe Biden’s administration is willing to go to protect the nation’s reform path, analysts said.

end quotes

And that answer is not far, at all, and here for the moment I will take a pause, because there is a lot of red meat on this bone to chew on, and so we will do it by the teaspoon full so as to not checked choked by it.

Paul Plante says:

And while we are on the subject of the long, strange trip the political career of Joe Biden has been, and continues to be, to our detriment and that of the world, as well, it is interesting how the mere mention of the name Amos Hochstein, a former member of the supervisory board of Ukrainian Naftogaz, from which he resigned in October 2020 by writing an opinion piece that highlighted the return of sabotage in the form of corrupt forces, has opened up the whole can of worms with regard to just how corrupt a ****hole Joe Biden’s pet state and prized possession Ukraine really is under this twerp Zelensky, who thinks OUR America is merely his fetchboy to provide him with whatever he wants when he wants.

As to Amos Hochstein, by all accounts, he was a straight shooter who dared to blow the whistle on Hunter Biden, as we see from this snippet from a Majority Staff Report of the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and U.S. Senate Committee on Finance titled “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns,” to wit:

Key Findings

* In early 2015 the former Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, George Kent, raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Kent’s concerns went unaddressed, and in September 2016, he emphasized in an email to his colleagues, “Furthermore, the presence of Hunter Biden on the Burisma board was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.”

* In October 2015, senior State Department official Amos Hochstein raised concerns with Vice President Biden, as well as with Hunter Biden, that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining U.S. policy in Ukraine.

* Although Kent believed that Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board was awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anti-corruption agenda in Ukraine, the Committees are only aware of two individuals — Kent and former U.S. Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs Amos Hochstein — who raised concerns to Vice President Joe Biden (Hochstein) or his staff (Kent).

end quotes

And quite obviously, from the fact that he had the integrity to not only resign, but to pen an op-ed blowing the whistle on corruption under the thuggish twerp Zelensky, to whom we are all supposed to be bowing as the savior of democracy for the world, a crock of horse**** given that Zelensky is a dictator who like Hitler before him has suspended the Constitution of Ukraine, nothing got done by Joe Biden and not only did nothing get done, but the whole matter was buried.

According to an article in the Kyiv Post titled “Sabotage of Naftogaz” in 2020, right after Amos Hochstein penned his op-ed exposing corruption in Ukraine tied directly to the twerp Zelensky, Hochstein was highly thought of, to wit:

National gas company Naftogaz of Ukraine has been through a rough couple of weeks.

An unverified government auditor’s report was leaked to the media, CEO Andriy Kobolyev took ill with COVID-19 and supervisory board member Amos Hochstein resigned citing a growing opposition to reform and political interference in Naftogaz’s work.

The escalation in pressure has spooked investors, who fear Ukraine may be slipping faster than previously anticipated from its reform-focused track.

Rather than signalling problems within Naftogaz itself, however, experts see these events as a red flag, potentially heralding attempts to reverse gas market reforms implemented in recent years and a return of corrupt schemes.

In Hochstein’s own words, the state-owned enterprise is “facing sabotage.”

In the years following the Euromaidan revolution Naftogaz built a strong reputation among foreign investors and supporters of reform in Ukraine.

Previously used by politicians for personal enrichment and political horse-trading (which left it unprofitable and in need of state subsidies), it changed radically after new management took over in 2014.

An attack on Naftogaz, hence, is viewed by many as an assault on the legacy of reform and successes achieved in previous years.

Even more concerning for many has been the early October resignation of Hochstein.

A former US diplomat who served in the Obama administration, Hochstein was a guarantor of the integrity of Naftogaz and its ability to withstand political meddling.

Ukraine’s gas sector has historically proved to be the country’s Achilles Heel and has served as a source of endless corruption.

“The American’s departure adds to mounting fears of a return to the corrupt practices that plagued Naftogaz for many years prior to a major shake-up in the Ukrainian gas sector beginning in 2014,” explained Sabadus, adding that the resignation was not a “complete surprise to Ukraine observers who have been paying attention to the removal of numerous reformists from key positions in recent months.”

end quotes

So why was that all hushed up, which takes us back to the Radio Free Europe article on May 04, 2021 by Todd Prince, a senior correspondent for RFE/RL based in Washington, D.C. who lived in Russia from 1999 to 2016, working as a reporter for Bloomberg News and an investment adviser for Merrill Lynch and has traveled extensively around Russia, Ukraine, and Central Asia, titled “Ukraine’s ‘Internal Threat’ On Blinken’s Plate After Naftogaz CEO Fired” where we have more of that story of endemic corruption in Joe Biden’s Ukraine tied directly to his corrupt little autocratic puppet Zelensky, to wit:

Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers on April 28 dismissed Naftogaz’s supervisory board, opening a legal door for the removal of Kobolyev, who has been widely credited with turning around the historically graft-infested company during his seven-year reign.

end quotes

And there, people, in the murky world inhabited by Joe Biden and his son Hunter, was the unforgivable sin of Andriy Kobolyev, the respected chief executive officer of Naftogaz, the state-owned energy company that has been at the center of some of Ukraine’s biggest corruption scandals over the past three decades – going after corruption that was feeding Hunter Biden, which made Andriy Kobolyev a direct threat to Joe Biden, who controls who can be what in Ukraine.

According to the RFE story, in testimony to Congress in November 2019, former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch called Kobolyev “as clean as they come” and “fearless” in pursuing reforms, which raises questions about what role Joe Biden himself was playing here, which takes us back to the Senate Report named above, where we have the following to consider concerning the role of Joe Biden in protecting Ukraine’s corruption, to wit:

Access to relevant documents and testimony has been persistently hampered by criminal investigations, impeachment proceedings, COVID-19, and several instances of obstructive behavior.

Accordingly, this investigation has taken longer than it should have.

The Chairmen’s efforts have always been driven by our belief that the public has the right to know about wrongdoing and conflicts of interest occurring within government, and especially those conflicts brought about by the actions of governmental officials.

This is a good-government oversight investigation that relies on documents and testimony from U.S. agencies and officials, not a Russian disinformation campaign, as our Democratic colleagues have falsely stated.

What the Chairmen discovered during the course of this investigation is that the Obama administration knew that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board was problematic and did interfere in the efficient execution of policy with respect to Ukraine.

Moreover, this investigation has illustrated the extent to which officials within the Obama administration ignored the glaring warning signs when the vice president’s son joined the board of a company owned by a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch.

And, as will be discussed in later sections, Hunter Biden was not the only Biden who cashed in on Joe Biden’s vice presidency.

This report not only details examples of extensive and complex financial transactions involving the Bidens, it also describes the quandary other U.S. governmental officials faced as they attempted to guide and support Ukraine’s anticorruption efforts.

The Committees will continue to evaluate the information and evidence as it becomes available.

end quotes

And there, people, is a good place to pause and take a rest to let this all sink in – the murky world of Joe and Hunter Biden, so stay tuned, for there is much more of this story yet to come.

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR JULY 4, 2022 AT 8:27 PM

Paul Plante says:

With respect to this “liberal world order” the autocrat Joe Biden is trying to impose not only on us, but the world, as well, it is amazing just how much pure bull**** this one shallow-thinking, “out-of-touch-with-reality” man can spew, as we see by going to the Washington Examiner story “White House sparks backlash after saying high gas prices guard ‘liberal world order'” by Christian Datoc on 1 July 2022, where we have as follows on that subject, to wit:

The White House’s messaging on elevated gas prices continues to provoke frustration from consumers.

National Economic Council Chairman Brian Deese spoke with CNN Thursday afternoon just hours after President Joe Biden told reporters that the public should expect prices to remain at their current level for “as long as it takes” for Ukraine to win the war against Russia.

“What we heard from the president, this is about the future of the liberal world order.”

“We have to stand firm,” Deese said.

end quotes

We have to stand firm to support the “liberal world order?”

Since when, dude?

Where is that expressed in OUR Constitution, besides nowhere, which makes it bull****?

And for the record, the National Economic Council (NEC) was established in 1993 to advise the President on U.S. and global economic policy, not to be preaching to we, the American people, about any supposed “standing firm to support Joe Biden’s liberal world order.”

By Executive Order, which is not law, the NEC has four key functions:

* to coordinate policy-making for domestic and international economic issues;

* to give economic policy advice to the President;

* to ensure that policy decisions and programs are consistent with the President’s economic goals; and

* to monitor implementation of the President’s economic policy agenda.

And for the record, Joe’s Brian is one of the richest economists and according to Wikipedia, Forbes and Business Insider, Joe’s Brian has a net worth of approximately $1.5 Million, which takes us back to the Washington Examiner story for more, as follows:

Biden himself has recently sought to change his messaging on gas prices after Democratic officials urged the White House to focus on domestic solutions rather than blaming prices on Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“The American people understood.”

“The American people rose to the moment.”

“The American people did what they always have done: defend freedom around the world.”

end quotes

That, of course, is pure Biden-esque Bull**** about the American people defending freedom around the world because Ukraine under Joe Biden’s corrupt fascist puppet Zelensky is not free!

It is under martial law with its Constitution suspended and Constitutional freedoms severely curtailed.

So Joe has us supporting autocracy and dictatorship, not freedom, which takes us back to this burst of BULL**** from Joe, to wit:

“They chose to stand with the people of Ukraine,” Biden said during a speech calling for a three-month gas tax holiday.

end quotes

No, Joe, we did not “choose” to stand with the people of Ukraine!

That was imposed on us without our having any say in the matter by you, after you provoked Putin into invading Ukraine to defend his country’s national security from the threat that you are to Russia with your belligerence, bellicosity, jingoism and war-mongering, which again takes us back to more pure Biden Bull****, to wit:

“So for all those Republicans in Congress criticizing me today for high gas prices in America, are you now saying we were wrong to support Ukraine?”

“Are you saying we were wrong to stand up to Putin?”

“Are you saying that we would rather have lower gas prices in America and Putin’s iron fist in Europe?”

“I don’t believe that,” he said.

end quotes

Uh, Joe, we are not “standing up to Putin.”

Putin is standing up to you, who were and are the aggressor here, and what is this horse**** about “Putin’s iron fist in Europe,” besides crazy talk from you and this little TWERP-O-CRAT in Ukraine, Zelensky, whose crazed ravings we have in a Reuters story titled “Ukraine tells NATO Russia wants to dictate future world order” by Pavel Polityuk on June 29, 2022, as follows:

KYIV, June 29 (Reuters) – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy told NATO leaders on Wednesday his country needed more advanced weapons and money to defend itself against Russia, warning that Moscow’s ambitions did not stop at Ukraine.

He put the monthly cost of defending Ukraine against Russia’s invasion at about $5 billion.

“This is not a war being waged by Russia against only Ukraine.”

“This is a war for the right to dictate conditions in Europe – for what the future world order will be like,” he said in a virtual address to a summit of the Western defence alliance in Madrid.

“That is why it is absolutely necessary to support Ukraine, even now, with weapons, finances and political sanctions against Russia, which will stop its ability to pay for the war.”

Moscow calls its actions a “special military operation” to disarm Ukraine and rid it of what it calls anti-Russian nationalism fomented by the West.

Zelenskiy said Russia did not want to stop at taking areas of southern Ukraine or the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, where the heaviest battles of the war are being fought.

“It wants to absorb city after city in Europe, which the Russian leadership considers its property and not independent states.”

“This is Russia’s real goal,” he said.

“The question is – who is next for Russia?”

“Moldova?”

“The Baltic States?”

“Poland?”

“The answer is all of them.”

end quotes

To which I reply, you’re a crackpot, Zelensky, a fool, a jumped-up TV comedian in way over his head, which has you talking like you are insane, and you are not the only one as we see by going to a USA TODAY article titled “Facing upheaval at home, Biden seeks to keep NATO military alliance behind Ukraine” by Francesca Chambers on 28 June 2022, to wit:

MADRID – President Joe Biden had hoped to use this week’s NATO summit as a platform to plead his case for maintaining support for the war in Ukraine.

U.S. officials have indicated Biden will stick to a bipartisan argument that it is in America’s national security interests to keep Vladimir Putin’s aggression from spreading across the rest of the continent.

end quotes

And how does one rationally deal with insane statements like that coming from an American president who clearly has no clue as to what he is talking about with the horsecrap about “Putin’s aggression spreading across the rest of the continent,” as if Putin somehow had the means to overcome the militaries of all the NATO nations which in the warped and twisted mind of Joe Biden, apparently cannot defend themselves.

And that takes us to REAR ADMIRAL John “Jackie Boy” Kirby, as follows:

National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby said in an interview with USA TODAY in advance of Biden’s visit to Europe that the war in Ukraine is representative of the fight for democracy across the globe.

“Thus far, the American people have been very supportive.”

“Not just the American people but populations around the world have been very, very supportive of Ukraine,” Kirby said.

“From a geopolitical perspective, it very much is a fight for democracy on the continent of Europe, and we believe that the American people understand that,” the Biden adviser added.

end quotes

And no, John, we are not stupid, and we are not stupid enough to believe that a country under martial law with a dictator in charge and its Constitution protections suspended can in any way, shape or manner be equated with “democracy on the continent of Europe.”

More like fascism on the continent of Europe, and check the polls, John, and you will find the American people are not supportive of Joe Biden’s war of aggression in Ukraine that he is stoking by sending ever more powerful weapons systems in an arms race with Russia, as we see in that USA TODAY story, to wit:

A survey taken by Quinnipiac University earlier this month found that more Americans, 51%, disapproved of Biden’s response to the Russian invasion than those who approved of it, 40%.

And in a Washington Examiner story titled “Biden polls worse as people notice their financial situation is worse” by David Freddoso on 27 June 2022, we had these statistics, to wit:

The economy is not Biden’s only problem.

Large majorities also disapprove of his handling of Ukraine (57%), immigration (59%), abortion (60%), and gun policy (62%).

end quotes

But will facts deter John Kirby and Joe Biden from feeding us more bull**** about Ukraine and the liberal world order Joe is imposing on the world?

Not hardly!

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR JULY 6, 2022 AT 6:20 PM

Paul Plante says:

So while we are on this subject of the “liberal world order” being pushed on us by Joe Biden, his National Security Council, and his Council of Economic Advisors, all of whom in reality are merely other yapping heads on the body of the colossus emerged from the sea that is Joe Biden, this thanks to the patriotism of the Cape Charles Mirror, now that the 4th of July weekend is over, and there are no distractions, let us go to a Washington Examiner story titled “Joe Biden has a new scapegoat: your local gas station” by David Freddoso on 3 July 2022, to see what this bozo Joe Biden is on about now in his state of mindless delirium that is causing chaos in the world around him, making Joe Biden the ULTIMA MAXIMA of bulls wrecking havoc in a china shop, where we have Joe at his best as only Joe Biden can be, to wit:

President Joe Biden is proving that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.

Recall that over the last couple of months, Biden has been desperately trying to explain away the high cost of gasoline.

When people didn’t buy Democrats’ scapegoating of oil companies, he claimed it was Vladimir Putin’s fault.

Never mind how far gas prices had risen before Putin invaded Ukraine.

But people were not fooled, and so last week Biden began appealing to your sense of patriotism.

Last week, the message was that when you pay $7 for gas, you are paying for the “liberal world order.”

Big surprise, but even that message isn’t getting the desired results.

So this weekend, Biden’s team has found a new scapegoat — your local gas station.

end quotes

Yes, people, you need somebody to vent your anger on, which is righteous anger, after all, so do not waste emotional energy blaming it on Putin, because frankly, he don’t care!

No, the source of your agony and misery is a lot closer to home than Putin, and in fact, is just down the street from you – the gas station where you fill up with gas!

THEY ARE THE ENEMY!

PERIOD!

How do I know this is true?

Because I listen to the president of these United States of America and if he says it, why, I would be a traitor if I took it as anything but the gospil truth.

Let’s go back for more of the fulminating of Joe Biden, who is acting the dictatorial autocrat and flexing his presidential muscles here on the subject of gas stations being a clear and present danger to our Democracy, which right now is extremely fragile, even more so than the finest of bone china, and our American way of life, and our national security, which is always something that Joe has handy to fall back on to justify this bull****, this time in a Fox News story titled “White House declines to clarify Biden’s comments imploring gas stations to lower prices” by Michael Lee on 3 July 2022, where we have genuine Joe Biden here for all the world to see, to wit:

The White House declined to clarify President Biden’s social media post demanding that gas stations bring down the price of gas, instead pointing Fox News to a speech the president made calling for a gas tax holiday.

“My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril,” Biden posted on Twitter Saturday.

“Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product.”

“And do it now.”

end quotes

A “time of war?”

When since 2001 hasn’t it been, Joe, mostly thanks to you alone, and then you in company with Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton and Victoria Nuland and Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, the “WRECKING CREW?”

So that “time of war” horsecrap you are spewing there is meaningless drivel, because as president, Joe, at least in OUR SACRED DEMOCARCY, as president, you do not get to declare war, period!

So can that “time of war” bull**** because it makes you sound ridiculous.

And TWITTER is for idiots who hate America, which is why Joe is preaching his SERMON ON THE MOUNT against the gas stations there, where only mindless idiots will hear him, and then, because they are mindless idiots unable to think for themselves and incapable of rationality as a result, believe him when he spews that garbage about a “time of war.”

And here we are going to have Joe’s National Security Council, established by the National Security Act of 1947 (PL 235 – 61 Stat. 496; U.S.C. 402), amended by the National Security Act Amendments of 1949 (63 Stat. 579; 50 U.S.C. 401 et seq.), whose members in this case are Joe’s entire government to include Karmela Harris and Tony Blinken and Janet “TOODLES” Yellen along with Joe’s Secretary of Defense, and Joe’s Secretary of Energy, and Joe’s pet poodle, the Attorney General, and Joe’s Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Representative of the United States of America to the United Nations, and the Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, and Joe’s Chief of Staff to the President, and the thin-headed, dull-witted Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Jake Sullivan in all his considerable glory acting with all of its considerable muscle, stepping in to protect Joe politically, which is what Joe uses them for, despite their purpose by law being, as was the case in prior administrations before this one, to be the President’s principal forum for national security and foreign policy decision making with his or her senior national security advisors and cabinet officials, and the President’s principal arm for coordinating these policies across federal agencies in the Politico article titled “John Kirby defends Biden’s tweet on gas prices” by David Cohen on 3 July 2022, where we have John Kirby, a REAR ADMIRAL and thus, not somebody to **** with, defending Joe, as follows, to wit:

The National Security Council’s John Kirby on Sunday defended President Joe Biden’s weekend tweet urging gas companies to lower their prices.

“I think anybody that knows President Biden knows he’s plain-spoken and he tells exactly what he’s thinking in terms that everybody can understand,” Kirby said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“The president is working very, very hard across many fronts, Mike, to try to bring that price down,” Kirby said, citing the president’s recent efforts at the G-7 summit and the release of oil from the nation’s strategic oil reserve.

end quotes

Okay, John, how to tell it, dude!

People, John Kirby is the real deal, a real REAR ADMIRAL, so when he says something like Joe Biden is releasing oil from the nation’s strategic oil reserve, running it down to dangerous levels as he tries desperately, with the help of his loyal National Security Council to save his failing presidency, you can take it to the bank that that is really happening.

But what John fails to tell us is where that released oil is going to, which takes us to a Reuters article titled “Oil from U.S. reserves head overseas as gasoline prices stay high” by Arathy Somasekhar on July 5, 2022, where we have what John Kirby was not telling us on July 3, 2022, as follows:

HOUSTON, July 5 (Reuters) – More than 5 million barrels of oil that were part of a historic U.S. emergency oil reserves release aimed at lowering domestic fuel prices were exported to Europe and Asia last month, according to data and sources, even as U.S. gasoline and diesel prices touched record highs.

The export of crude and fuel is blunting the impact of the moves by U.S. President Joe Biden designed to lower record pump prices.

end quotes

Yes, people, the autocrat Joe Biden is THE WORLD LEADER, so he has a lot more than the needs of the United States to deal with, and since the “TIME OF WAR” right now isn’t here, but in Europe, which is one of Joe’s many jewels in his crown, Joe has to prioritize, taking from one who has to give, to those who are in need, so that instead of that oil staying here to lower OUR fuel prices, especially diesel, Joe is sending it elsewhere to places Joe deems more important right now, as we see from that Reuters article as follows:

The fourth-largest U.S. oil refiner, Phillips 66, shipped about 470,000 barrels of sour crude from the Big Hill SPR storage site in Texas to Trieste, Italy, according to U.S. Customs data.

Trieste is home to a pipeline that sends oil to refineries in central Europe.

Atlantic Trading & Marketing (ATMI), an arm of French oil major TotalEnergies, exported 2 cargoes of 560,000 barrels each, the data showed.

Cargoes of SPR crude were also headed to the Netherlands and to a Reliance refinery in India, an industry source said.

A third cargo headed to China, another source said.

end quotes

And there, thanks to the Cape Charles Mirror, we have an update on what has happened in the world of Joe Biden since last we met on the subject of Joe Biden’s liberal world order, but stay tuned, because knowing Joe, it won’t end here, but will only get more absurd, so stay tuned.

By way of review, and here let me say that I am one of the old-fashioned Americans from an entirely different century and millennium than this one is who can actually not only read words, but assimilate their meaning, and who gets his news from transcripts of actual conversations such as Liz Cheney above here, this is what the Cape Charles Mirror had to say about this Cassidy Hutchinson BULL**** SHOW starring Liz Cheney doing to the actual testifying, while Cassidy serves as a mere prop, keeping in mind that sitting there in the audience while this FARCE is going on, where Liz Cheney is conducting an actual prosecution of Trump based on HOODOO and BULL****, is Virginia’s Elaine Luria, who has put her stamp of approval on this KANGAROO COURT by her participation as an enabler and her silence with respect to denouncing it as very UN-AMERICAN, to wit:

Please just imagine how the left would react.

It’s pretty surreal watching the CNNs of the world still pretending that there aren’t multiple actual witnesses willing to testify that the fake bombshell hearsay testimony they’re salivating over isn’t demonstrably false and that their dream witness/coffee girl perjured herself!

Why would Secret Service agents call a junior staffer like Cassidy Hutchinson to give her “bombshell” information about Trump that they didn’t report themselves?

Answer: They didn’t.

She seems to have made the whole thing up.

What does this say about the rest of her testimony?

Would it be fair to say Liz Cheney, that the Secret Service has “debunked” your star witness Cassidy Hutchinson?

end quotes

Red meat, indeed, people, and let me say again, that before I began making these comments, I took the time to read her so-called “testimony,” which was FAKE DIALOGUE put together for her probably by some of the Hollywood screen writer pals of the smarmy little pencilneck congressman from Hollywood and Disneyland, Adam “Mr. SHIFTY HIMSELF” Schiff, it is that transparently contrived, as if for a court drama on TV for people with no vocabularies and IQs of 43 who need it to be kept very short and simple for them, one step up from “see Dick run.”

And before we go further with her “testimony,” which was not testimony at all, just gossip, to address the very relevant question raised by the Mirror as to why would Secret Service agents call a junior staffer like Cassidy Hutchinson to give her “bombshell” information about Trump that they didn’t report themselves, keeping in mind that this is now 2022, a benchmark date, we need to look at who Cassidy’s bio says she is, not who Bennie Thompson and Liz Cheney make her out to be, which is somebody really brave who was really very, very important in the West Wing, so that it would be, in their model of reality, her that all these people trying to stop Trump on January 6, 2021 would come to as the most important person there to come to, even above Trump himself.

As to her educational background, and hence, her credentials and qualifications to be a REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT PERSON in Washington, D.C., a city full of important people with impressive credentials, and Bennie and Liz chose to bypass this part of her resume in making her out as very important, Cassidy graduated three years ago in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science.

Now, I am for self improvement, so God bless the young lady for her educational achievement, but let’s face it, people, a degree in Poly Sci with no experience other than as a gofer getting coffee for politicians does not serve to make you as important in Washington as Cassidy is made out to be by herself, Bennie Thompson and her prompter, Liz Cheney, Washington being a city where you find people with Master’s Degrees in Poly Sci cleaning commodes or scraping bubblegum off the floor of the bus station with a single-edge razer blade, so common is the breed in Washington.

So why indeed would it be she that all these people and the Secret Service came running to?

Let’s look further in her bio before going to the BOMBSHELL TESTIMONY about the “presidential lunge,” where we have one description of her duties, as follows:

In March 2020 (one year after she graduated), when Mark Meadows became Trump’s fourth chief of staff, he selected her to serve as one of his aides.

She soon became Meadows’ principal assistant, continuing through to the end of the Trump presidency, where her title was Special Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs.

She worked in an office next to Meadows’ office, just down the hall from the Oval Office.

She took notes at meetings and traveled with Meadows, monitoring his phone and relaying his orders.

end quotes

That’s what her bio says, but that is not how Bennie and Liz made her out to be, but seriously, people, we’re talking SHOW BIZ here, so truth and facts are not relevant!

It’s about making the ignorant believe the unreal is really real!

And if it was only on television, believe me, they could have pulled it off, but there is a transcript, and that is what buries them, because their words are frozen in time, not disappearing into the aether as they do on television.

And before we go to her “testimony,” which is nothing more than contrived dialogue and gossip intended to humiliate Trump, let’s go back to her bio once more, as follows:

Identified as a “White House legislative aide,” Hutchinson was the subject of a nationally-syndicated AP photograph in which she was shown dancing to the Village People song “Y.M.C.A.” alongside White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany at the end of Trump’s September 21, 2020, campaign rally in Swanton, Ohio.

When Trump’s term ended, she was initially supposed to work for his post-presidency operation in Florida, but the plan was “abruptly dropped” before she was supposed to begin.

end quotes

And thus she became THE WOMAN SCORNED!

To which @realDonaldTrump on June 28, 2022 tweeted “I hardly know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is, other than I heard very negative things about her (a total phony and “leaker”), and when she requested to go with certain others of the team to Florida after my having served a full term in office, I personally turned her request down.”

“Why did she want to go with us if she felt we were so terrible?”

“I understand that she was very upset and angry that I didn’t want her to go, or be a member of the team.”

“She is bad news!”

And as the Cape Charles Mirror says, and so it goes!

THE CAPE CHARLLES MIRROR JULY 8, 2022 AT 10:00 PM

Paul Plante says;

Here is this out-of-control, mentally unstable, Joe Stalin wannabee Joe Biden again flexing his dictatorial muscles, this time acting as if it were he, the Stalin-esque dictator of America, who gets to interpret the Constitution, not the Supreme Court, whose recent ruling on abortion the Stalin-esque autocrat Biden is going to overturn with an executive order, because in a dictatorship like America has become under Biden and the Democrats, that is what dictators get to do, to wit:

REUTERS

“Biden signs executive order on abortion, declares Supreme Court ‘out of control'”

By Jeff Mason and Nandita Bose

July 8, 2022

WASHINGTON, July 8 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden said the Supreme Court decision overturning the right to an abortion was an exercise in “raw political power” and signed an executive order on Friday to ease access to services to terminate pregnancies.

“What we’re witnessing wasn’t a constitutional judgment, it was an exercise in raw political power,” Biden told reporters at the White House.

“We cannot allow an out of control Supreme Court, working in conjunction with extremist elements of the Republican party, to take away freedoms and our personal autonomy.”

end quotes

“We cannot allow?”

That is sedition Joe is talking and inciting there, people, where sedition is conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state.

This is incredible to hear this **** in OUR SACRED DEMOCRACY – an autocratical dictator calling for violence against the Supreme Court, and not a single peep of protest from any kind from the main stream and legacy media who are cheering this rug-chewing madman Biden on.

If that were Trump saying those words, oh, how they would have howled!

But not when it is their dictator of choice, Joe Biden.

What a pitifully sick nation we have become since 6 January 2021 when the Democrats threw OUR Constitution into the toilet to put a Joe Stalin wannabee in the Washington white house.

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR JULY 9, 2022 AT 5:23 PM

Paul Plante says:

So, to begin at the beginning of this bizarre saga Bennie Thompson, Liz Cheney and Virginia’s very own Elaine Luria who is representing the interests of the Eastern Shore residents here in this FARCICAL ABSURDIST DRAMA built around a KANAGAROO COURT that stars Liz Cheney as the CHIEF PROSECUTING ATTORNEY and THE WOMAN SCORNED, Cassidy Hutchinson as a stage prop, this all courtesy of the patriotism of the Cape Charles Mirror, let us go back to June 28, 2022 @ 6:23 PM ET and the full transcript from the June 28 hearing of the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, where we have Bennie Thompson, the CHIEF INQUISITOR coming on the record to introduce the stage prop Cassidy Hutchinson as somebody not only important, but heroic, as well, and as the house lights dim, the show begins as follows:

BENNIE THOMPSON: The Select Committee to investigate the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol will be in order.

In our hearings over the previous weeks, the Select Committee has laid out the details of a multi-part pressure campaign driven by the former president aimed at overturning the results of the 2020 presidential election and blocking the transfer of power.

We’ve shown that this effort was based on a lie, a lie that the election was stolen, tainted by widespread fraud, Donald Trump’s big lie.

end quotes

And now Bennie and his band are going to out-trump Trump with even bigger lies, known a BENNIE THOMPSON’S GREAT BIG LIES, so enter Cassidy Hutchinson from stage right to thunderous applause from the at-home audience glued to the edge of their seats in anticipation of some really good drama that is easy to follow in this week’s episode of BENNIE THOMPSON’S WITCH HUNTERS IN ACTION staring the well-loved and much revered Naval heroine Elaine Luria of the East Shore of Virginia, which takes us back to the spinning of the web that the fairy dust and pixie dust and cobwebs that comprise the totality of BENNIE THOMPSON’S GREAT BIG LIE will be layered and festooned, to wit:

In the weeks ahead, the committee will hold additional hearings about how Donald Trump summoned a mob of his supporters to Washington, spurred them to march on the Capitol, and failed to take meaningful action to quell the violence as it was unfolding on January 6th.

However, in recent days the Select Committee has obtained new information dealing with what was going on in the White House on January 6th and in the days prior, specific detailed information about what the former president and his top aides were doing and saying in those critical hours, firsthand details of what transpired in the office of the White House chief of staff just steps from the Oval Office as the threats of violence became clear, and indeed violence ultimately descended on the Capitol in the attack on American democracy.

end quotes

Now, I don’t know about you people out there, but our film critics up here are rating that as some very good suspenseful drama dialogue coming from Bennie there, which is seen as a testament to the very high caliber of the Hollywood screenwriters they have writing the script, which takes us back to Bennie as follows:

It’s an important — it’s important that the American people hear that information immediately.

end quotes

And I agree, which is why I am taking this trouble through the good offices of the Cape Charles Mirror to make sure the American people do hear that information immediately, which again takes us back to Bennie and his BULL****, to wit:

That’s why, in consultation with the vice chair, I’ve recalled the committee for today’s hearing.

end quotes

Actually, he called them together to make this a real prime-time TV event aggrandizing Bennie and Liz where Bennie and Liz could get some good press and the all important TV ratings while disparaging Trump from a really safe distance, which again takes us back to Bennie, to wit:

It hasn’t always been easy to get that information because the same people who drove the former president’s pressure campaign to overturn the election are now trying to cover up the truth about January 6th.

But thanks to the courage of certain individuals, the truth won’t be buried.

The American people won’t be left in the dark.

Our witness today, Ms. Cassidy Hutchinson, has embodied that courage.

I won’t get into a lot of detail about Ms. Hutchinson’s testimony we’ll show.

I’ll allow her words to speak for themselves, and I hope everyone at home will listen very closely.

end quotes

And I too will allow her words to speak for themselves, and I too hope everyone out there at home will listen very, very carefully, and to aid that process, I will go to the trouble of printing her words to listen to, and believe me, it won’t be any trouble at all.

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR JULY 10, 2022 AT 5:54 PM

Paul Plante says;

To understand this sick game Virginia’s Elaine Luria is playing on us as a member of NANCY PELOSI’S SELECT WITCH HUNTER’S COMMITTEE, along with her henchmen Bennie Thompson, and Lizzie Cheney, who took an axe and gave OUR Constitution forty whacks and when the job was nicely done, she gave OUR Bill of Rights forty-one, given that we are going to be hearing Lizzie Cheney testifying about how powerful this Cassidy Hutchinson was alleged to be as the secretary (call it whatever name you want, that is what she was) to Trump’s chief of staff, itself the office of a glorified clerk or head eunuch, let’s take a hard look at the role of the chief of staff in a modern American presidential office, and believe me, this is high school stuff, if not grade school stuff, which gives you an idea of the insults Ellaine and Bennie and Lizzie are heaping on us as they try to pass off this bull**** they are peddling as a legitimate governmental inquiry, to wit:

White House Chief of Staff

The White House chief of staff leads the staff of the Executive Office of the President (EOP) and advises the president on policy issues.

Duties

The role of the president’s chief of staff varies by presidency but generally includes both managerial and advisory duties, including:

* Selecting and hiring staff members

* Structuring the office’s system of reporting information

* Monitoring and maintaining the office’s information flow to the president

* Maintaining the president’s schedule

* Advising the president on politics and policy

Managerial

The managerial duties of the chief of staff include forming the White House staff, maintaining the president’s calendar and managing the information that the president receives.

Staff formation

Chiefs of staff who are appointed at the beginning of an administration typically have much more control over the initial hires of the White House staff, but those who are appointed mid-term may need to re-organize the staff to suit their needs.

Office structure

The chief of staff is typically responsible for creating a structure of reporting and decision-making for White House staff.

The structure is largely based on the president’s style of operation.

Chiefs of staff have been labeled “strong” and “weak” based on the structure of the White House.

A “strong” chief of staff requires all information intended for the president go past their desk in order to maintain a very hands-on management style, while a “weak” chief of staff does not require such a reporting method before information gets to the president.

In order to maintain the structure of the White House, a chief of staff usually has between one and three assistants.

The assistants help oversee political issues, White House staff and, during election season, the added information from the president’s campaign.

Regular meetings with key White House staff help the chief of staff manage the different aspects of the job.

Maintaining the flow of information

The chief of staff must maintain the flow of information to assure the president receives all the necessary information and points of view.

The chief needs to monitor the information provided by staff on important policy issues to make sure it is in the interest of the president, not the producers of the information.

However, it is also important that the chief of staff involve the White House staff in the decision-making process in order to ensure the chief is not the sole person directing the policies presented to the president.

Presidents using an open door policy in regards to information have typically turned to a “strong” chief of staff in order to prevent becoming overwhelmed.

The chief of staff is also responsible for providing background information on issues important to the president.

Another crucial aspect of having a chief of staff is to prevent the president from getting information from key contributors and close friends.

Keeping a layer of insulation between the president and those supporters and friends limits the president’s willingness to afford favors that may be detrimental to the office.

Similarly, the chief of staff provides insulation from quick, uninformed decisions.

Scheduling

The chief of staff is also involved in the scheduled appearances of a president.

Chiefs of staff or a deputy travel to meetings and appearances outside of the White House in order to keep informed of topics and provide information if necessary.

Speeches and briefings are previewed by the chief of staff in order to understand what attention may be attracted by the statements.

Chiefs of staff often meet with the president and other staff prior to important appearances to help shape the intended impact.

Advisory

The chief of staff serves in an advisory role in both policy and politics.

The chief must understand the political landscape of the country in order to give the president honest advice on policy.

The chief of staff needs to be able to negotiate with Congress and the executive cabinet as well as donors and supporters.

end quotes

Hmmmmmm.

Nothing in there about being able to restrain the president in any way, nor is there anything in there about the chief of staff having the power and ability to control and direct events happening outside the white house in the city of Washington.

I wonder why Elaine Luria, Bennie Thompson and Lizzie Cheney are trying to make us think he did.

Stay tuned and we will go back to the transcript to delve that answer as we are told this week in this week’s episode of the Cape Charles Mirror that by being a WITCH HUNTER and by being a part of this ABSURDIST SCAM the Bennie Bunch are running on us here, Virginia’s own Elaine Luria is continuing to live up to her oath every day in Congress by faithfully executing the laws of the United States, preserving and protecting our democracy.

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR JULY 11, 2022 AT 6:02 PM

Paul Plante says:

So, before we go back to the transcript of the testimony of Lizzie Cheney as to the outsize role this WOMAN SCORNED Cassidy Hutchinson was alleged to have played in the events of 6 January 2021, when the Democrats under Nancy Pelosi perverted OUR Constitution to make Joe Biden the president of the United States, to our detriment and that of the world as well, we need to go back in time to something that has never before happened here in the United States of America to my knowledge, and that is what is known as a Stalinist show trial, which is a public trial in which the judicial authorities have already determined the guilt or innocence of the defendant.

In this specific case, the “judicial authorities” who have already decided the guilt of the defendant, Donald Trump, who is not present and is not able to confront his accusers despite the Sixth Amendment to OUR Constitution, a Constitution these WITCH HUNTERS including Virginia’s Elaine Luria are ignoring, which amendment provides that a person accused of a crime has the right to confront a witness against him or her in a criminal action, including the right to be present at the trial, are Virginia’s Elaine Luria, Bennie Thompson, Lizzie Cheney, Adam “MR. SHIFTY HIMSELF” Schiff, Jamie Raskin, who is a scholar of the Democrat constitution, Zoe Lofgren, Pete Aguilar, Stephanie Murphy, and Adam Kinzinger.

In a Stalinist Show Trial, which is exactly what this is, for the first time in American history that I am aware of, the actual trial has as its only goal the presentation of both the accusation and the verdict to the public so they will serve as both an impressive example and a warning to other would-be dissidents or transgressors.

As is most definitely the case here, show trials such as occurred on June 28, 2022 @ 6:23 PM ET with the Cassidy Hutchinson Show starring Lizzie Cheney tend to be retributive rather than corrective and they are also conducted for propagandistic purposes, in this case to create a falsified version of the truth about January 6th in order to destroy not only Donald Trump, but the Republican party, so as to make the Democrat party the only legal political party in America, which will usher in the age of one party rule in America, reminiscent of the Moscow trials, which were a series of show trials held by the Soviet Union between 1936 and 1938 at the instigation of Joseph Stalin which were nominally directed against “Trotskyists” and members of “Right Opposition” of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

And with that necessary background established, so people can appreciate just how foreign this is to America, having Stalinist Show Trials in America, and how UN-AMERICAN it is, let us go to the transcript of the SHOW TRIAL on June 28, 2022, where we have Bennie Thompson, the HEAD INQUISITOR, propping up the credentials of his STAR WITNESS Cassidy Hutchinson, to make her seem all important in the political affairs of Washington, D.C., a center of raw political power unto herself who was relied on by all the other power brokers in Washington for her sage and learned advice, as follows:

BENNIE THOMPSON: Our witness today is Ms. Cassidy Hutchinson, who served in the Trump administration in the White House Office of Legislative Affairs from 2019 to 2020 and as a special assistant to the president in the White House chief of staff’s office from March 2020 through January 2021.

Ms. Hutchinson, I’d like to start with a few questions about your background.

The — these are some photographs we’ve obtained highlighting your career.

These show you with members of Congress, including Steve Scalise, as well as the White House with leader Kevin McCarthy and Jim Jordan.

Others show you with the –president and members of Congress aboard Air Force One.

end quotes

And if you want to be not only famous in Washington, D.C., but very, very famous as is Cassidy Hutchinson, that’s the way you do it right there – get a lot of pictures of yourself taken with famous people and LE VOILA, you are now famous to.

That’s it, that’s the way you do it, and here we should mention that Cassidy was also the subject of a nationally-syndicated AP photograph in which she was shown dancing to the Village People song “Y.M.C.A.” alongside White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany at the end of Trump’s September 21, 2020, campaign rally in Swanton, Ohio.

So she has credentials, people, which is why she is Bennie Thompson’s star witness here, which takes us back to Bennie for more pumping up of his star witness, to wit:

BENNIE THOMPSON: When you started at the White House, you served at — in the Office of Legislative Affairs.

We understand that you were initially hired as a staff assistant, but were soon promoted to a position of greater responsibility.

Can you explain your role for the committee?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: When I moved over to the White House chief of staff’s office with Mr. Meadows when he became the fourth chief of staff, it’s difficult to describe a typical day.

I was a special assistant to the president and an adviser to — advisor to the chief of staff.

end quotes

According to her published bio on Wikipedia, she took notes at meetings and traveled with Meadows, monitoring his phone and relaying his orders.

Getting back to Cassidy hyping her role here, we have more, to wit:

The days depended on what the president was doing that day, and that’s kind of how my portfolio was reflected.

I had a lot of outreach with members of Congress, senior cabinet — cabinet officials.

You would work on — I would work on policy issues with relevant internal components and members on the Hill, as well as security protocol at the White House complex for Mr. Meadows and the president.

BENNIE THOMPSON: And then you received another promotion in March 2020.

At that time, you became the principal aide to the new White House Chief of staff Mark Meadows.

Is that right?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: That’s correct sir.

BENNIE THOMPSON: What did a typical day look like for you in your work with Mr. Meadows?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: It varied with what was going on.

We spent a lot of time on the Hill.

I spent time on the Hill independently, too, as I was his liaison for Capitol Hill.

We did a lot of Presidential travel engagements, but mostly I was there to serve what the Chief of Staff needed.

And a lot of times what the Chief of staff needed was a reflection of what the President’s schedule was detailed to do that day.

BENNIE THOMPSON: So is it fair to say that you spoke regularly in your position, both with members of Congress and with senior members of the Trump administration?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: That’s correct.

That’s a fair assessment sir.

BENNIE THOMPSON: And would you say that in your work with Mr. Meadows, you were typically in contact with him and others in the White House throughout the day?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: That’s correct sir.

Mr. Meadows and I were in contact almost — pretty much throughout every day consistently.

end quotes

And given that she was his secretary, and he was her boss, doesn’t it logically follow that she and Mark Meadows would be in contact every day?

When you are somebody’s secretary, isn’t that the way it would normally work, that you would be in contact with your boss throughout the work day?

And while people cogitate on that, let’s take a short break, but don’t go away, because after a pause for station identification, we will be right back with more of the BENNIE SHOW live from Washington. D.C.

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR JULY 12, 2022 AT 5:50 PM

Paul Plante says:

And before we go to the testimony of Lizzie Cheney on June 28, 2022, using as her stage prop this WOMAN SCORNED Cassidy Hutchinson, the most important woman in Washington. D.C. to hear Lizzie and Benny and yes, Cassidy herself, tell about it, for a look at how a very important, in-the-know person in Washington, D.C. like Cassidy Hutchinson dances to the song “YMCA” by the Village People, here is the link to the AP photo of how it’s done by people in Washington who are the trend setters for those of us out here in the provinces who wouldn’t know anything about how to properly dance to the song “Y.M.C.A.” but for the people in Washington like Cassidy Hutchinson who are there to show us the way:

https://web.archive.org/web/20220630041 ... it?photo=3

And with that important background detail taken care of, let’s cut right to the testimony of Lizzie Cheney as it happened, as follows, with the warning to the meek and mild to make sure you are sitting down because this is some real BLOCKBUSTER stuff that might knock you right out of your socks otherwise, if you were not well grounded so hang on tight and off we go, to wit:

LIZ CHENEY: Mr. Chairman, we will begin today with an exchange that first provided Ms. Hutchinson a tangible sense of the ongoing planning for the events of January 6th.

end quotes

Now, note the use of suspense there with the use of the words “tangible sense of the on-going planning,” which puts Cassidy Hutchinson right smack dab in the middle of a budding conspiracy to take over America by Donald Trump, right at the onset, which our critics up this way attribute to the use of some very accomplished Daytime Soaps script writers writing Lizzie’s dialogue for maximum impact, which takes us back to Lizzie’s testimony, as follows:

On January 2nd, four days before the attack on our Capitol, President Trump’s lead lawyer Mr. Giuliani was meeting with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and others.

end quotes

And yes, I did warn you that this testimony would be viscerally gripping which is why it is necessary to be seated when reading it which takes us back to Lizzie and Cassidy, to wit:

Ms. Hutchinson, do you remember Mr. Giuliani meeting with Mr. Meadows on January 2, 2021?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: I do.

He met with Mr. Meadows in the evening of January 2, 2021.

LIZ CHENEY: And we understand that you walked Mr. Giuliani out of the White House that night, and he talked to you about January 6th.

end quotes

And right off the bat, and this is the essence of good screen writing for dramatic effect, we have Cassidy being brought right into the center of the conspiracy to take over America by one of the key conspirators himself, which takes us back to the play action, to wit:

What do you remember him saying?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: As Mr. Giuliani and I were walking to his vehicles that evening, he looked at me and said something to the effect of, Cass, are you excited for the 6th?

It’s going to be a great day.

I remember looking at him saying, Rudy, could you explain what’s happening on the 6th?

He had responded something to the effect of, we’re going to the Capitol.

It’s going to be great.

The President’s going to be there.

He’s going to look powerful.

He’s — he’s going to be with the members.

He’s going to be with the Senators.

Talk to the chief about it, talk to the chief about it.

He knows about it.

end quotes

Presumably, the “Chief” he refers to is Donald Trump, and it is only natural that a very, very important person like Cassidy would have access to Trump to ask him face-to-face about January 6th, which takes as back to Lizzie, as follows, keeping in mind that Virginia’s Elaine Luria is in the audience watching this show happen:

LIZ CHENEY: And did you go back then up to the West Wing and tell Mr. Meadows about your conversation with Mr. Giuliani?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: I did.

After Mr. Giuliani had left the campus that evening, I went back up to our office and I found Mr. Meadows in his office on the couch.

He was scrolling through his phone.

I remember leaning against the doorway and saying, I just had an interesting conversation with Rudy, Mark.

It sounds like we’re going to go to the Capitol.

He didn’t look up from his phone and said something to the effect of, there’s a lot going on, Cass, but I don’t know.

Things might get real, real bad on January 6th.

end quotes

Now, people, talk about masterful script writing as only an experienced Daytime Soaps writer can produce to achieve maximum dramatic effect, here it comes as follows:

LIZ CHENEY: Ms. Hutchinson.

Mr. Meadows is engaged in litigation with the committee to try to avoid testifying here.

What — what was your reaction when he said to you things might get real, real bad?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: In the days before January 2nd, I was apprehensive about the 6th.

end quotes

This is some great stuff, isn’t it?

I have read through it many times already, and I still get a chill up and down my spine when I hear Cassidy, who in the movie should be played by someone important in Hollywood like Angelina Jolie, talking about her apprehensions about January 6, as if with her vision she saw the impending end of our sacred democracy, which takes us back for more of her gripping testimony, to wit:

I had heard general plans for a rally.

I had heard tentative movements to potentially go to the Capitol.

But when hearing Rudy’s take on January 6th and then Marc’s response, that was the first — that evening was the first moment that I remember feeling scared and nervous for what could happen on January 6th.

end quotes

OMG, people – scared and nervous!

Talk about setting the stage early on in the dialogue to hold the audience spell-bound in their seats, here we are seeing how the masters do it, and do it well, which takes us back to Cassidy for more, as follows:

And I had a deeper concern for what was happening with the planning aspects of it.

LIZ CHENEY: Thank you, Ms. Hutchinson.

Today, we’re going to be focusing primarily on the events of January 5th and 6th at the White House.

But to begin and to frame the discussion, I want to talk about a conversation that you had with Mr. John Ratcliffe, the Director of National Intelligence.

Here is an indication of just how very important Cassidy Hutchinson was in Washington, that the Director of National Intelligence for the whole United States government would come to confide in her and seek her advice, which takes us back to the script, as follows, with Lizzie talking:

And you had this conversation in December of 2020.

Mr. Ratcliffe was nominated by President Trump to oversee US intelligence — our US intelligence community.

And before his appointment, Mr. Ratcliffe was a Republican member of Congress.

As you will see on this clip, Director Ratcliffe’s comments in December of 2020 were prescient.

And here is where we see one of the many games being played on us here by the WITCH HUNTERS – this use of snippets of prior videotape snippets, where we do not know whether or not Cassidy is under oath, as opposed to having her answer live in that hearing:

[Begin videotape]

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: My understanding was Mr. — Director Ratcliffe didn’t want much to do with the post-election period.

Director Ratcliffe felt that it wasn’t something that the White House should be pursuing.

It felt it was dangerous for the President’s legacy.

He had expressed to me that he was concerned that it could spiral out of control and potentially be dangerous, either for our democracy or the way that things were going for the 6th.

UNKNOWN: When you say it wasn’t something the White House should be pursuing, what’s the it?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: Trying to fight the results of the election, finding missing ballots, pressuring — filing lawsuits in certain states where there didn’t seem to be significant evidence, and reaching out to state legislatures about that.

So pretty much the way that the White House was handling the postelection period, he felt that there could be dangerous repercussions, in terms of precedent set for elections, for our democracy, for the 6th.

You know, he was hoping that we would concede.

[End videotape]

And that people, is a STALINIST SHOW TRIAL taking place here in the United States of America for the first time in my memory, and I believe in our entire history as a nation, because as low as Joe McCarthy sunk with his hearings, these WITCH HUNTERS have sunk even lower, and stay tuned as we take a pause for station identification and an unbroken half hour of your favorite commercials, and then we will be back for more of the BENNIE AND LIZZIE SHOW starring Cassidy Hutchinson as a stage prop, so don’t touch that dial.
