and Impeachment

Time McConnell And Ryan Removed
From Their Leadership Positions
by Rick Wells
{} ~ A clearly displeased Lou Dobbs has a few thoughts “on Republican leadership once again failing to deliver for President Trump,”... who he believes “Has to be disappointed to the extreme with these GOP leaders. Senate Majority Leader McConnell failing the President and his party on health care twice in less than 24 hours despite having 7 years to prepare for this legislative moment.” Dobbs plays a clip of McConnell making excuses, to which he adds, “I mean, can you believe that blather? And McConnell with that blather way [better way], slogan remark again. McConnell and Ryan apparently love that hollow, puerile slogan.” “As for the Speaker,” says Dobbs, “he’s boasting that he’s proud the House was able to pass its own repeal and replace bill. He does look better, thanks to McConnell and the Senate. Conflict, however, between McConnell and Ryan not helpful to the Republican Party. But then neither is the Speaker nor the Majority Leader themselves.”...
The GOP Establishment Decides
to Stop President Trump’s Agenda
by Erick Erickson
{} ~ Conservatives support the repeal of liar-nObamacare, but moderate Republican establishment leaders do not. Guess what? liar-nObamacare is not being repealed... Conservatives support building a wall along the border with Mexico, but moderate Republican establishment leaders do not. Guess what? The wall has not only not been funded, but it is not being built either. Conservatives support tax reform, but, again, moderate Republican establishment leaders do not. Guess what? Tax reform is no where to be found. Conservatives support cutting the size of Washington and cutting spending. Again, this is not happening and it is not for a lack of trying. Time and time again, the Republican establishment has blocked all those efforts...
While Everyone Focused on Don Jr, the FBI
Made a Stunning Move on liar-Hillary’s Emails
{} ~ Should any of us be surprised? There are now new revelations that the FBI’s investigation into liar-Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server in 2015 and 2016 never had any teeth... Was this because of the all-too-cozy relationship between former FBI Director James Comey who previously worked for liar-Clinton Foundation-connected bank HSBC and Bill and Hillary liar-Clinton? Already, it’s come out that Comey had taken dubious orders from former liar-nObama Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who had directed Comey not to label the FBI’s look at liar-Clinton’s server “an investigation” — telling him to call it a “matter” instead. But the fact that the FBI later closed the case, despite damning proof of purposely destroyed smartphones (smashed with a hammer no less), “bleach”-erased hard drives and deleted emails seems to indicate that the agency was supposedly OK with being stonewalled by liar-Clinton’s lawyers and supplied with only partial at best evidence...
Rep. Jordan Wonders If
Susan Rice Has Something To Hide
by Amber Athey
{} ~ Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan is wondering what former national security adviser Susan Rice may be hiding after she postponed her testimony on the unmasking of Trump associates... Rice was originally set to testify in front of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Tuesday. Jordan, who is a member of that committee, said last week that he was looking forward to the testimony because “the American people want to get the truth on all these issues.”...
Susan Rice Said “Yes” To Senate Intel
Committee – Trouble Lurked In The House
by Rick Wells
{} ~ An unnamed source told CNN that former liar-nObama officials Susan Rice and Denis McDonough will appear before the Senate intelligence committee this week... It’s surely a charade of some type, as the chairman of that committee, Richard Burr (R-NC),  is so intent on finding something to lynch President Trump for he might as well be a Democrat. His ranking member, Mark Warner (D-VA) conducts himself in their “bi-partisan” effort to nail the President that one might think he’s the chairman. While Rice has agreed to come for a little chit-chat to the friendly combines of their hearing room, she cancelled her previously scheduled testimony before the House Intelligence Committee just a couple of days ago. It’s noteworthy and telling that Rice cancelled her scheduled closed door testimony before the House Intelligence Committee but agreed to a later scheduled invitation from the Senate...
 Obsessive-Compulsive Democrats and            
By James Shott:  Who dares to deny that the circus-like atmosphere surrounding Donald Trump's presidency is the most unusual political phenomenon in recent memory?
          There is a lot of true craziness among the anti-Trump crowd. They criticize him for virtually everything, or nothing. Like the non-story involving Poland's first lady, who set the anti-Trump world ablaze when, after her husband and Trump shook hands, she had the audacity to shake the hand of Melania Trump before greeting the president. Oh, the horror! And daughter Ivanka sat in for him briefly at the G-20 meeting wearing a pink dress with — gasp — bows on it!
          Perhaps the best evidence of compulsive obsession (or is it obsessive compulsion?) and leftists losing their grip on reality was Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who wanted to impeach Trump before he was even sworn in.
          Other evidence of the high degree of obsession — or at least amusing overstatement — comes from a survey by the drug and alcohol rehabilitation group Detox, which found, "Over 73 percent of Democrats would give up drinking for the rest of their lives if it led to the impeachment of President Donald Trump..." The survey did not provide a mechanism for assuring allegiance to the pledge.
          It's quite likely that many people who desire impeachment don't understand what it is or how it works. Impeachment is a political remedy; it deals with breaches of public trust, or injuries done immediately to the society itself, by certain government officials, but not necessarily criminal activity in the traditional sense.
          The grounds for impeachment require the significant likelihood that "Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors" (crimes by public officials against the government) have been committed, according to Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution. It's not the appropriate solution for those dissatisfied with the results of an election, or the most fervent wish to be rid of a president some don't like.
          Impeachment doesn't remove a president from office. It's the first step in a rigorous two-step process; bringing formal charges against him or her, much like a grand jury indictment. Remember, Bill liar-Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives in 1998, but went on to serve out his term as president because he was not convicted in step two, the trial by the U.S. Senate, requiring the affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of its members.
          The only other successful impeachment of a president was Andrew Johnson, who was acquitted by the Senate in 1868. Richard Nixon likely would have been impeached and convicted over the Watergate affair, but he avoided impeachment by resigning from office.
          The record for presidential impeachment shows it to be a difficult process without much success, as deliberately designed by the Founders.
          Failures don't impede Democrats in their efforts at futile goals, however. Obsession and compulsion are tough masters to defeat. It's almost as if their real goal is just stirring up negative opinion among their faithful followers to interfere with the president's agenda...
          "If they had a good case based on real information, I think they would mention it by now and put their cards on the table," said Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a conservative government watchdog group. He is also a former Pennsylvania state prosecutor and former counsel for the board of directors at the Legal Services Corporation. He added, "They don't have high crimes and misdemeanors. They don't have low crimes and misdemeanors."
          Despite any compelling evidence, or even evidence that isn't compelling, leftist cohorts who have rallied to the idea include, Democracy for America and other "resistance" groups, and a group of Congressional Democrats who either don't understand the issues or the process or just seek recognition.
          This list includes the aforementioned Rep. Waters, along with Texas Rep. Al Green, California Rep. Jackie Speier, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth dinky-Warren, New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, Maine Sen. Angus King, Texas Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, and Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal. And let's not forget Virginia's own Sen. Tim Kaine, who actually mentioned "treason" regarding Donald Trump Jr.'s fruitless meeting with a Russian attorney in June 2016.
          After admitting nothing has yet been proved, Kaine said, "We're now beyond obstruction of justice, in terms of what's being investigated. This is moving into perjury, false statements, and even potentially treason."
          California Rep. Brad Sherman actually has introduced articles of impeachment, although the House Democrat leadership hasn't fallen in line with that move. The effort is almost certain to fail because only one Democrat, Al Green, has signed on to it, and, oh by the way, it won't go anywhere in a Republican-controlled Congress.
          At some point, however, Democrats must chill down the rhetoric. Emotion and desire, however fervent and crushing they may be, must be put aside, an objective look at the actual case must be undertaken, and then they need to get back to performing the national service for which they were elected. Then again, since they're utterly untrustworthy on handling any issue of importance, the nation would be better served if Democrats continued their obsessive spiral and failed to advance in the 2018 election.
