I just could not keep quiet any longer. The hatred and smearing of our good president with all the outright lies turns my stomach. President Trump has turned our country around, and prosperity abounds.

The politicians in Washington are having a much harder time financially raping our country with a president in charge who wants what’s best for it. (Why do you think politicians become extremely rich while in office?) Meanwhile many gullible citizens just ignorantly lap up all the lies and retell the stories blindly. The latest is with the conversation of President Trump speaking with the Ukraine president. A recent writer in this opinion column regurgitated only about what he heard without checking the facts, regarding the latest (fake) news when he wrote “asking a foreign leader to ‘dig up dirt’ on political rival Joe Biden.”

Some news agencies report the President “pushed” the Ukraine president about this eight times. So far from the truth!

Unfortunately, most news agencies would only make good fiction writers; and, many citizens actually believe this stuff! Please. Look up the transcripts on the conversation of President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky.

Make your own informed and intelligent decision on the issue. I know you’ll be enlightened!

Under President Trump’s stewardship, our amazing country is becoming great again. Unemployment is at record lows, GDP up, companies coming back to USA, becoming energy independent, putting America first. The list goes on and on.

We now have a president that loves this country and has the guts to fight for it. This is the greatest county on Earth. We all need to back him up and love it too.

I agree. Keeping quiet is not the American way, so I will return the favor. Yes, prosperity is touted loud and clear, but the tax cut for the wealthiest will ultimately come to haunt us. I think this is a bankruptcy economy glamour show. Wealthy people are borrowing money at rates of 1% +/- and speculating in too many ways to tell In this posting. Following one slant of conservative, liberal, or fake news is dangerous because it is not news, but opinion. So the writer could easily be called gullible or highly informed. Depends on your built in biases. There is plenty of evidence for Congress to consider and none of us know because so much is held back. I will not back anyone up until they come clean. Mr. president, as they say, the truth will set you free. Release the requested documents. Then we can decide to back you up or support impeaching you.

Mike

The President: Congratulations on a great victory. We all watched from the United States and you did a terrific job. The way you came from behind, somebody who wasn’t given much of a chance, and you ended up winning easily. It’s a fantastic achievement. Congratulations.

President Zelenskyy: You are absolutely right Mr. President. We did win big and we worked hard for this. We worked a lot but I would like to confess to you that I had an opportunity to learn from you. We used quite a few of your skills and knowledge and were able to use it as an example for our elections and yes it is true that these were unique elections. We were in a unique situation that we were able to achieve a unique success. I’m able to tell you the following; the first time, you called me to congratulate me when I won my presidential election, and the second time you are now calling me when my party won the parliamentary election. I think I should run more often so you can call me more often and we can talk over the phone more often.

The President: [laughter] That’s a very good idea. I think your country is very happy about that.

President Zelenskyy: Well yes, to tell you the truth, we are trying to work hard because we wanted to drain the swamp here in our country. We brought in many many new people. Not the old politicians, not the typical politicians, because we want to have a new format and a new type of government. You are a great teacher for us and in that.

The President: Well it’s very nice of you to say that. I will say that we do a lot for Ukraine. We spend a lot of effort and a lot of time. Much more than the European countries are doing and they should be helping you more than they are. Germany does almost nothing for you. All they do is talk and I think it’s something that you should really ask them about. When I was speaking to Angela Merkel she talks Ukraine, but she doesn’t do anything. A lot of the European countries are the same way so I think it’s something you want to look at but the United States has been very very good to Ukraine. I wouldn’t say that it’s reciprocal necessarily because things are happening that are not good but the United States has been very very good to Ukraine.

President Zelenskyy: Yes you are absolutely right. Not only. 100%, but actually 1000% and I can tell you the following; I did talk to Angela Merkel and I did meet with her. I also met and talked with Macron and I told them that they are not doing quite as much as they need to be doing on the issues with the sanctions. They are not enforcing the sanctions. They are not working as much as they should work for Ukraine. It turns out that even though logically, the European Union should be our biggest partner but technically the United States is a much bigger partner than the European Union and I’m very grateful to you for that because the United States is doing quite a lot for Ukraine. Much more than the European Union especially when we are talking about sanctions against the Russian Federation. I would also like to thank you for your great support in the area of defense. We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps. specifically we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.

The President: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike... I guess you have one of your wealthy people... The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible.

President Zelenskyy: Yes it is very important for me and everything that you just mentioned earlier. For me as a President, it is very important and we are open for any future cooperation. We are ready to open a new page on cooperation in relations between the United States and Ukraine. For that. purpose, I just recalled our ambassador from United States and he will be replaced by a very competent and very experienced ambassador who will work hard on making sure that our two nations are getting closer. I would also like and hope to see him having your trust and your confidence and have personal relations with you so we can cooperate even more so. I will personally tell you that one of my assistants spoke with Mr. Giuliani just recently and we are hoping very much that Mr. Giuliani will be able to travel to Ukraine and we will meet once he comes to Ukraine. I just wanted to assure you once again that you have nobody but friends around us. I will make sure that I surround myself with the best and most experienced people. I also wanted to tell you that we are friends. We are great friends and you Mr. President have, friends in our country so we can continue our strategic partnership. I also plan to surround myself with great people and in addition to that investigation, I guarantee as the President of Ukraine that all the investigations will be done openly and candidly. That I can assure you.

The President: Good because I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that’s really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just want to let you know that. The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me.

President Zelenskyy: I wanted to tell you about the prosecutor. First of all I understand and I’m knowledgeable about the situation. Since we have won the absolute majority in our Parliament, the next prosecutor general will be 100% my person, my candidate, who will be approved by the parliament and will start as a new prosecutor in September. He or she will look into the situation, specifically to the company that you mentioned in this issue. The issue of the investigation of the case is actually the issue of making sure to restore the honesty so we will take care of that and will work on the investigation of the case. On top of that, I would kindly ask you if you have any additional information that you can provide to us, it would be very helpful for the investigation to make sure that we administer justice in our country with regard to the Ambassador to the United States from Ukraine as far as I recall her name was Ivanovich. It was great that you were the first one, who told me that she was a bad ambassador because I agree with you 100%. Her attitude towards me was far from the best as she admired the previous President and she was on his side. She would not accept me as a new President: well enough.

The President: Well, she’s going to go through some things. I will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call and I am also going to have Attorney General Barr call and we will get to the bottom of it. I’m sure you will figure it out. I heard the prosecutor was treated very badly and he was a very fair prosecutor so good luck with everything. Your economy is going to get better and better I predict. You have a lot of assets. It’s a great country. I have many Ukrainian friends, their incredible people.

President Zelenskyy: I would like to tell you that I also have quite a few Ukrainian friends that live in the United States. Actually last time I traveled to the United States, I stayed in New York near Central Park and I stayed at the Trump Tower. I will talk to them and I hope to see them again in the future. I also wanted to thank you for your invitation to visit the United States, specifically Washington DC. On the other hand, I also want to ensure you that we will be very serious about the case and will work on the investigation. As to the economy, there is much potential for our two countries and one of the issues that is very important for Ukraine is energy independence. I believe we can be very successful and cooperating on energy independence with United States. We are already working on cooperation. We are buying American oil but I am very hopeful for a future meeting. We will have more time and more opportunities to discuss these opportunities and get to know each other better. I would like to thank you very much for your support.

The President: Good. Well, thank you very much and I appreciate that. I will tell Rudy and Attorney General Barr to call. Thank you. Whenever you would like to come to the White House, feel free to call. Give us a date and we’ll work that out. I look forward to seeing you.

President Zelenskyy: Thank you very much. I would be very happy to come and would be happy to meet with you personally and get to know you better. I am looking forward to our meeting and I also would like to invite you to visit Ukraine and come to the city of Kyiv which is a beautiful city. We have a beautiful country which would welcome you. On the other hand, I believe that on September 1 we will be in Poland and we can meet in Poland hopefully. After that, it might be a very good idea for you to travel to Ukraine. We can either take my plane and go to Ukraine or we can take your plane, which is probably much better than mine.

The President: Okay, we can work that out. I look forward to seeing you in Washington and maybe in Poland because I think we are going to be there at that time.

President Zelenskyy: Thank you very much Mr. President.

The President: Congratulations on a fantastic job you’ve done. The whole world was watching. I’m not sure it was so much of an upset but congratulations.

President Zelenskyy: Thank you Mr. President bye-bye.

Nice cut and paste job. Those super skilled stenographers surely know the proper use of their and they're. Please review the President's fourth to the last statement, specifically the last sentence. Guess this is a verbatim version of their conversation, eh Mike.

BBB

Another thing that would turn the letter writer's stomach is not getting paid for performance of contracted services. Trump and company burned 100's of contractors who performed contracted services on many of the Trump building projects since the 1980's. This was covered extensively by the media in 2016, before Trump was nominated. This was easily substantiated by culling court records in NY and NJ, so fakery is moot. Trump has made a career of selling out his goodwill, so expecting him to have our collective self interests at heart is folly. I suggest you contact the letter writer, maybe you can score a room addition, and only pay 70% of bill. Just tell him it will cost the remaining 30% to hire an attorney and render a court decision. You would make our President proud.

“We now have a president that loves this country and has the guts to fight for it. This is the greatest county on Earth. We all need to back him up and love it too”

We sure do. Thanks for pointing that out, Mark!

Mike

What documents has Trump not released that you think are pertinent, horsehouse? And didn’t you say Congress has plenty of evidence to consider? Which is it?

horsehouse

Sorry for the delay in replying to your question, Mike. So to clarify, the evidence that Congress has requested for their oversight role based on concerns in front of them cannot be considered if the White House does not release what for which they have asked. Anyway, the question of Congressional oversight has evolved, starting with Article 1, section 1 of the Constitution. A good discussion of this is found at history.house.gov. (Investigations & Oversight).

Mike

@ BBB:

“100's of contractors”. Hundreds? - You don’t really believe that do you? How many hundreds, BBB? Give us a freaking break!

“This was covered extensively by the media” Good, you avoid using the term news media. Yeah, it was reported, ad nauseam, by your anti-President spin media.

“This was easily substantiated by culling court records”, did you actually “cull” those records yourself, BBB? Your statement implies you did. Or are you simply parroting your fake news sources?

I hope you don’t feel “bullied”, BBB! Rather you should feel used. Used by the lying leftist radicals who are promoting and grooming hatred for our President and fellow Americans.

bill jenkins

Trump is politically weak. he had to have russian help in the last election. if he runs in the next one he figures he needs Russia, Ukraine and now China to help.of course this is all unconstitutional, but hey it's Trump the guy who loves America.

BBB

You're right, it was not 100's of contractors, but 100's of vendors. Not that it really matters. In the last three decades, the Trump Organization has been involved in 3,500 lawsuits and counting. That's more than the top five real estate developers in this country combined. This is figure is widely accepted, even Newsmax, a media company run by Chris Ruddy, a well known Trump toady, used the figure in 2016 after originally published in USA Today. Trump Org. was the defendant in approx. 1,500 of the lawsuits. Trump in this case was true to his word as liking to start lawsuits, with 1,900 as plaintiff. So Mike, if you have a problem with the reporting of the WSJ, USA Today, Reuters, Time Inc., Fortune Magazine, and even Newsmax, I suggest you take it up with those folks. Good luck with that. Apparently Trump and Co. didn't find issue, as no libel suit is pending. As an undergrad I spent a lot time in court houses culling public information for various assignments.. While an undergrad I also worked nights throwing unruly drunks out of the local disco, so feeling bullied never has been a problem. Thanks for caring though.

I wonder what kind of tome Dun and Bradstreet (D &B is a credit scoring company for commercial entities) must have on all the different tRump enterprises. Probably high risk, low score, and pages upon endless pages of negative reports.

Branson Hunter

Poor Mike Pence... The President shamelessly tossed Pence under the bus by telling congressional Democrats (and the press) to "look at Mike Pence's phone calls" with Ukraine officials. Is the VP entangled in the itsy bitsy spider impeachment inquiry?





Could this call into question 3 U.S.C. 19? Nancy is such an impeccable and fashion-aware Speaker of the House, the world is waiting to know which designer will she chose to create the lovely gown of them all the Inauguration Ball?

Mike

"vendors"?

Blayd

Vendor (to tRump empire): a person, company, or entity that provides goods and or services to a client for a fee. See also: Plaintiff.

Investor (to tRump project): a person that finances an enterprise with hard cash for a share of the enterprise with the hope of financial gain. See also: Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Self immolation (tRump vendor or investor: setting one's self on fire. See also: the path nimrod-in-chief tRump is running head first towards.

The piano company that Trump & Co. stiffed for approx. $30,000 would be considered a non-construction vendor. The guy sells and deliveres a new grand piano for a casino opening and gets paid $70,000 of a $100,000 bill. Just one of 100's of vendors stiffed.

RCarter

Yeah Trump sure loves all of his white voters. Everyone else are traitors. Says the racist idiot who thinks white supremists are fine people and who openly disregards our laws.

I'm still waiting f to see what manufacturing has returned to America.

His tariffs are destroying farmers . Remove the welfare payments to farmers. See how long they last.

Where did that 10 million that hus daughter Ivanka get from the Saudis go to ? Into Kushners real estate ?

Our Attorney General is relentless Mark…and justice for all, eh?
