Every major mainstream media outlet is echoing the Democrats’ interpretation of Ambassador William B. Taylor’s testimony as fact. I’ve read his 15-page opening statement. You should as well. It has a single instance in which an administration official allegedly tied aid to Ukraine not blocking “investigations” during a conveniently unverifiable conversation. Otherwise, it’s a whole lot of “no quid pro quo” and odd contradictions.
But in it, he expresses his opinion that quid pro quo was there. He believes President Zelensky’s visit to the White House was contingent on the “investigations” going public, even though he personally delivered an invitation to visit the White House long before the Trump-Zelensky phone call in June.
The most interesting contradiction came when he said he believed aid was being withheld until the public announcement of an investigation by Ukraine into Burisma, which employed Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. But shortly after making that assertion, he acknowledged that aid was released to Ukraine despite there being no quid pro quo. We must be terrible at enforcing quid pro quo because they got everything and we got nothing.
“I returned to Kyiv on June 17, carrying the original copy of a letter President Trump signed the day after I met with the Secretary. In that letter, President Trump congratulated President Zelenskyy on his election victory and invited him to a meeting in the Oval Office,” Taylor noted.
Hmm. If Taylor knew President Trump had already invited President Zelensky to the White House, what made him believe the invitation was fake? Coordinating schedules for two world leaders isn’t easy. After all, they have countries to run. Moreover, a visit to the White House is nice but it’s not such a glorious event that someone would be willing to fake an inappropriate investigation just to secure the invite. It seems much more likely that if an investigation into Burisma was pending, the optics of visiting the White House following a public announcement of the investigation would be more fitting.
As for the aid, they got it. Yes, it was delayed. But it was delivered without President Zelensky prompting an investigation. That tells us either Rudy Giuliani is a terrible deal broker (he’s not) or the basis for impeachment is actually full or more holes than before Taylor testified.
If military aid in exchange for a public announcement of a Burisma investigation was quid pro quo, where’s the quo? Zelensky got the quid (aid) without delivering the alleged quo (investigation). Bill Taylor’s interpretation of events is very flawed.
Update: Someone stole my line…

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
