When are you going to own up to the fact that your idol is a bombastic man? Of course, bombastic man is not an impeachable offense, but initiating a quid pro quo with a foreign government, wanting that foreign government to investigate U.S. citizens is.

Witnesses testifying in Congress have seriously alleged that the bombastic man in the Oval Office was looking to get dirt on the Bidens from the Ukrainian government in return for U.S. military aid the bombastic man was withholding.

Former ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, said “That was crazy.”

Lt. Colonel Vindman who was in combat in Iraq, was wounded and was recently serving in the National Security Council, listened in on bombastic Trump’s phone conversation with President Zelensky, and has told the Congress Trump’s conversation with Zelensky was inappropriate. And from what I read and hear, I say it was as crooked as Richard Nixon saying, “I am not a crook.”

Are people testifying in Congress like Taylor and Vindman lying, like the local columnist says? Are they even liberals? I think not. Trump chose them both because he knew their history.

And as for the Turks, Syrians and Russians cooperating with the U.S. military, nonsense. They did not interfere but they did not like it. The Syrian Interior minister said the U.S. had no right to Syria’s oil fields. The Russians were really disturbed by the move and said it would create complications.

The Turks got what they wanted: the displacement of the Kurds.

Why don’t you own up to the very real truth as to who was helping the U.S. with valuable information for six months leading up to the killing of Baghdadi.

It was the Kurds who even after Trump’s betrayal had spies in the Baghdadi compound working with the Americans. Witnesses like Taylor and Vindman are honest men in government opting for the rule of law against the rule of man. Fox-News analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano says it is plain to see Trump’s impeachment offenses.

The local columnist is grasping for straws in an ill-wind that blows from the Oval Office. Perhaps he thinks himself a better judge than Judge Andrew Napolitano? Or Fox-News political show host Chris Wallace who said Trump’s was a coordinated campaign in Ukraine.

Really, how can anyone be for a lying, sleazy character like we have for president? But Luis, he is a Republican hombre, and “Republicans are squeaky clean.”

Yeah well, Trump needs a good scrubbing. He needs to come clean with the country and resign.

Only now, he is toying with the idea of a “fireside chat” ala Democrat Franklin Roosevelt. Only Trump’s will be, if it happens, a doctored-up version of his phone call transcript with President Zelensky of Ukraine, while Roosevelt’s was an honest address to the nation.

Trump, as usual, is acting like he is a victim who had “a perfect conversation” with Zelensky, and says: they want to impeach me for that?

Well, not exactly. They are investigating your “perfect conversation” with Ukraine which many witnesses have testified was your quid pro quo attempt to get Ukraine to come up with dirt on the Bidens.

And now others are talking about dirt in the Oval Office.

Conservative columnist Michael Gerson wrote that “Americans are starting to see the full global impact of having a president who is ignorant of history, and driven by impulse, immune to advice and dead to the romance of American ideals.”

If boorish Trump is re-elected, America has lost its primary place in the world.

And I’m shocked, and cannot believe that America has brazenly, and boorishly squatted on oil fields that belong to the Syrians.

That is insane, and makes America a bully, and a thief like Russia stealing the Crimea.

I'm pretty sure Luis that you are the only Bombastic one here. You think you can say whatever you want and the people of Del Rio would take it as truth. That's some kinda narcissistic ego you have. In fact, you talk down to your readers as if you don't think they are smart enough to read thru your distorted version of things. Most of what you spew here is your own opinion, hateful rhetoric and inaccurate biased reporting. Trump gets things done and that's why American's will re-elect him in 2020. Two of his biggest accomplishments have been for the benefit of our veterans and our justice system. Let's review. President Donald J. Trump has made it a priority to support the American veterans who courageously protected our country. He even took time to attend the NYC Veteran's Day Parade (something no other President has ever done). President Trump has worked tirelessly to ensure that our American heroes have the care and support they have earned when they leave the service. Hallelujah. In 2018, President Trump signed the largest funding bill for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in history, securing $86.5 billion for the VA. In addition, President Trump signed the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, making it easier to identify problems within the VA and improve the quality of service for all pf our veterans. In an effort to expedite the appeals process for veterans, President Trump signed the Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act. President Trump created a 24/7 White House VA Hotline to ensure that our veterans receive immediate attention and aid. In addition, President Donald J. Trump Is creating a future of opportunity and prosperity for all Americans by reforming our justice system. In 2018, President Trump signed the groundbreaking First Step Act which enacted reforms that make our justice system fairer and help former inmates successfully return to society. This historic legislation gained widespread support from police, prosecutors, and prominent civic and religious organizations. The First Step Act’s reforms addressed inequities in sentencing laws that disproportionately harmed the African American community. Over 90% of those benefiting from the retroactive sentencing reductions in the First Step Act are African American. The First Step Act eliminated life sentencing under the “three strikes” provision and expanded judicial discretion in sentencing of non-violent crimes. The First Step Act provides rehabilitative programs to inmates, helping them successfully rejoin society and not return to crime. President Trump’s reforms are smart on crime, recognizing that successful reentry is critical to making our communities safer. President Trump’s solution focuses on what works, addressing the risks and needs of prisoners to promote rehabilitation. This offers a second chance: The President is advancing second chance hiring to break down employment barriers for former inmates and give them the best possible chance to succeed. The Trump Administration is promoting second chance hiring to give former inmates the opportunity to live crime-free lives and find meaningful employment. The Department of Education is expanding an initiative that allows individuals in prison to receive Pell Grants to better prepare themselves for the workforce. The Department of Justice and Bureau of Prisons launched a new “Ready to Work Initiative” to help connect employers directly with former prisoners. The Department of Labor awarded $2.2 million to States to expand the use of fidelity bonds which underwrite companies that hire former prisoners. Working to lift all Americans: These reforms build on President Trump’s vow to ensure that no community is forgotten and that everyone has the ability to achieve the American dream. Americans from all backgrounds are benefiting from the booming economy, with more than 6.4 million jobs created, rising wages, and unemployment at the lowest rate in half a century. African American poverty and unemployment rates have reached record lows.

President Trump is revitalizing forgotten communities through Opportunity Zones, which encourage investment and growth in under served communities.

President Trump established the Pledge to America’s Workers, leading companies to create more than 14 million employment, training, and education opportunities for workers. President Trump has made supporting Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) a priority, moving the Federal HBCU initiative to the White House shortly after taking office. It seems you are incapable of giving our President credit where credit is due. #Trump2020
