  1. “In northwest Alaska, kunlangeta “might be applied to a man who, for example, repeatedly lies and cheats and steals things and does not go hunting, and, when the other men are out of the village, takes sexual advantage of many women.” The Inuits tacitly assume that kunlangeta is irremediable. And so, according to Murphy, the traditional Inuit approach to such a man was to insist he go hunting, and then, in the absence of witnesses, push him off the edge of the ice.”

  2. That’s why they must testify! Bolton, Mulvaney, Pompeo, and Rudy Colludie… they’re all first-hand fact witnesses. If everything Trump did was on the up and up, he’d have no problem with them testifying.

    • M I hate to make you mad, but when I see Donald Trump making fun of handicapped… insulting military vets… and taking the word of Putin over our intelligence agencies just to name a few… no I will never respect Donald Trump… I have not nor will I ever consider him anything but a con man… that’s my final answer… have a nice evening

    • @Utha , go look at the IG report again and remember Horowitz can’t talk to the people the Attorney General and US attorney can.. Criminal investigation now ongoing..

    • @Thomas Roberts So our misgivings regarding your comment of just vote seem to be well founded. Thanks for at least admitting it.

    • M what are you trying to say? I said all we can do is vote… we don’t have to like whoever gets elected… you’re not making much sense to me

    • M I’m trying to play some blues here… I’m not worried about Donald Trump and his golf game or his tweets or any of that nonsense either… goodnight

    “my great and unmatched wisdom….” that tells him to lie, cheat, bribe, and extort…

    • @Everblue Freediving lol nope, not equivocating, you clearly dont even know what that means. Classic. I offered ZERO ambiguous BS. I offered objective substantive and confirmable FACTS. Trump never admitted any illegal actions. Stop lying, you look like a deranged clown.

    • @Everblue Freediving how ironic, here you are defe3nding ythe obviously and blatantly corrupt Democrats…you clowns ARE corruption. Nothing but mindless libertine degenerates and you will be dealt with sooner than later. Just keep it up. Heck, why not escalate some more? Please do. Just give us the reason we need.

    • @allex gibbs let’s troll him until he leaves.

    • @Everblue Freediving Trump has been the best thing this country has had in decades. Best economy in the world. Illegal immigration cut in HALF. Trade deals overhauled with Mexico, N Korea, Canada, Prison Reform, pulling troops out of the middle east, cut taxes. Moved the embassy from Palestine to Jerusalem. Forcing companies to stop outsourcing jobs and higher Americans. Household average annual income is up 4 digits. He is doing great.

    Check the dates

  5. Lock him up!

  6. There are so many smoking guns in this Presidency, the room is filled with smoke, and while the intelligent individuals go to the floor to crawl out of the mess, the idiots are standing up, light headed and unable to see a thing.

  7. the swamp is just as swampy as it was before

  8. I am good with his Historical Impeachment on 12-18-2019. His name is already tarnished “Forever” in the history books. Whatever happens from here, I stand by Nancy Pelosi on withholding the Articles of Impeachment from the Senate. In Criminal trials there is Documentary Evidence, and Witnesses. Mick Mulvaney, Rick Bolton, Duffey, and Blair are central to this case. The American people want the truth.

    • @Mike ByrdWhich means what? Absolutely nothing to remove Trump from office you need 67 votes from the United States Senate. There are 45 Dem and 2 ind which means you need 20 republicans to vote the other way. yeah that’s not going to happen. Its all a waste of time. Can you name 1 good witness the democrat showed during the hearing?

    • @j m nice, point went way over your head!

    • @Mike Byrd Trumps impeachment means nothing. Bill Clinton was impeached and look nothing ones it got to the senate.

    • lmao, impeachment means nothing without the senate kiddo…..Also trumps legacy will be better than anything you ever done inbred…lmao

    When a 16 year old little girl with Asperger’s triggers the entire reptilian party it really flares their Trump derangement syndrome. The Reptilian party got so emotional I thought they were transgender.

    ‘ I am the choose one with unmatched wisdom, I and I alone know more than the generals, trust me, believe me, tremendous great genius brains, fantastic, perfect words, the best most ones like nobody even thought of , I can tell you that.

    • That’s just as stupid as the whole charade of vodou.
      The Ukraine is not a member of NATO, not a member of The EU, and not a permanent member of the UN.
      There’s just as much an issue with Ukraine as there is with any other 3rd world country trying to develop.

      This is a whole waste of government resources. Not a fan to either party, but this is beyond stupid ! A real junker-vodou who-do civil-atheist party. Might as well dress up like tribal 10000bc and dance around a bon fire in the woods somewhere nowhere. Stupid!

  12. I’m so freaken board with all of this, elect a clown, you get a circus.
    ***** Happy New Year, everyone. Peace! *****

  13. The whistle-blower for President 2020!

    • Cant wait to see him in the senate testifying

    • Hey do a story on Destiny Harrison, black lives matter remember?….how about all these hate crimes against Jews and Asians, you won’t cover an epidemic of REAL hate crimes cause they’re not celebrities? Yeah, stay classy CNN👎

  14. The executive “shall” inform congress of any delay in releasing funding. Pre-Trump “shall” had no wriggle room, shall meant SHALL and was not open to interpretation.

  15. Chump, “It was perfect, I said I did it, I’m blaming the whistleblower, he’s legally protected but his name is John Smith, let’s get the Biden’s to testify, maybe Hillary’s e-mails and the server. I want to testify due to being treated worse than anyone in history, but I’m obstructing justice and telling everyone too!!!” Happy Impeachment!!!

    • He is not obstructing justice since the judicial process had not been completed when the democrats in the House decided to bail on it and just impeach without any actual criminal charges which guaranteed no bipartisan support and no removal of the president. The whole purpose of impeachment is to remove the president. This has been a complete screw up and a waste of time and money.

  16. He doesn’t have advisors, he has co- conspirators. Lock them up.

    • Im just glad Americans vote with their brains and their wallets, not with FAKE NEWS CNN BULLSHIT!! Trump beat you idiots in 16 and hes going to CRUSH you dumbass liberal democrat morons in 20. have a good night!!!
