Two Democrats were just sworn in to the Senate this week: Doug Jones of Alabama and Tina Smith of Minnesota. One man waits in the wings to do the same – former GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. The Trump White House is likely watching the Senate developments very closely as they could prove pivotal to ongoing attempts to destroy the Trump presidency. Smith is simply a side move for Democrats, but Jones is a big gain. He is the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in a generation. It is believed both Smith and Jones support the “Impeach
Comments: Romney would be another vote for impeachment. Count on it.
Apparently nearly every attorney is a “constitutional scholar”, but not being even your average slip and fall lawyer, I suspect there should be some reason or excuse in order to talk of impeachment. Other than funny hair. With Andrew Johnson and Clinton I could understand the attempt.
Mitt Romney will be another reason Trump won´t be impeached. Impeachment, of course, takes place in the House but House members must be cognizant of the likelihood of conviction in the Senate. Where there is no likelihood, impeachment too becomes unlikely. Romney is a man of reason and moderation. He is not a hothead and it is difficult to see him voting for conviction on the basis of any of his stated reasons for disliking Trump. They are not "high crimes and other misdemeanors . . " The article is paranoia in written form.
#3 is right, along with the fact that a big percentage of the Republican congress critters who would vote to impeach President Trump on some baloney charge like not liking Trump or not being in tune with his political policies, who are from states won by Trump, would be cutting their own throats. Remember the first rule of being a successful congress critter is self-preservation.
As #6 states impeachment is what the House does. Bill Clinton was impeached. However, he was not convicted by the Senate. That takes 67 votes. The only way the Senate would take up a trial for an impeached Donald Trump would be if Democrats controlled the Senate. There is way too much hysteria and fake news in the air.
As evidenced here, Romney remains the golden calf of big government republicans and other tendentious severe conservatives.
Like Hillary, Romney still believes he was deprived of a White House that is rightfully his, and he and his cabal of Wall Street grifters and money changers believe hey can get it all back. So it is hardly beyond the wall of believability that the mentality with such contempt for populist conservatism, small government and pro life ideals that they continue to yip and squeal with their daily postings, that such people will promote all efforts to rein flare the myth of Romney.
Romney by no means feels he should´ve won the White House. As reported by Boston Globe and others quoting Romney´s son, he never wanted the job, hated the whole idea of running, would´ve dropped out any day if someone would´ve run in his place. Romney ran a fraud. He belongs in jail. He´s the standard Sabotage Republican--having no ideology and no soul-- who exists just to criticize Republican voters (who to this day have no political party behind them), and block the country from getting the candidate it needs. The media like him because he lost and is guaranteed to lose again should he run. He also promoted global warming fraud.
Our most effective U.S. presidents—and keep in mind, I’m saying “most effective,” not “best”—possessed, to one degree or another, a certain measure of indifference to human life. Whether you’re preserving the Union, inciting a World War, incinerating a couple hundred thousand J*ps, or getting up to some mischief in a Tonkin Gulf, indifference to human life is kind of a must. Reckless indifference is helpful, but depraved indifference? Now, that’s the stuff of presidential legend. (Snip)Oprah is practically defined by her depraved indifference to human life. During the course of her storied career, Oprah has repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to
NEW YORK—I walked down 8th Street yesterday, past the jumble of little secondhand shops and shoe stores and stand-up lunch counters and trendy bodegas, looking for the place where Susan Cabot was discovered. It was a club called the Village Barn (Snip)She was one of those women so sexy that it starts to be classified as a handicap. Case in point: She was still turning up in the news last week—31 years after her death—as the woman used by the CIA in 1959 to make sure that Jordan’s King Hussein had “female companionship” during his visit to the United States.
Word is as many as 200 members of Congress have now reviewed what some are calling a “shaking the foundation of our democracy” memo that links high-placed figures within both the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton campaign, the DNC, Deep State, and Establishment Media in an attempt to subvert the 2016 Election. It was never “Russian Collusion.” It was our own government/the Obama administration/Deep State, attempting to choose the next president – Hillary Clinton. If in fact 200 members of Congress have reviewed the memo and there have been NO LEAKS of that information, that would indicate it is devastating to the Democrats,
Whispers indicate there is a flurry of activity in BOTH the Obama and Clinton camps today. Both are reaching out BIG TIME to trusted media advocates to try and make certain this scandal is contained. Mr. Bongino doesn’t seem to think that will prove successful… (Tweet)
I was going to put this out there on Twitter, but why monetize my writing for people who hate me and my readers? WSJ took a look at Tweets from @realdonaldtrump since Inauguration Day, by the hour. Here’s what we found. https://t.co/XaCYb9ARNW — The Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) January 19, 2018 So the good people at the once-respectable Wall Street Journal have been following President Donald Trump´s tweets for a year now, reading them like the entrails of a goat to divine some sort of evidence that will once and forever end the presidency of a man the snobs of
A year ago today, Donald Trump officially assumed the office of the presidency, after dominating the nation´s politics for more than a year. Republicans did not see it coming. Democrats did not see it coming. And while Republicans finally have accepted the new era in American politics, Democrats haven´t. Which explains their anniversary gift to Trump. A government shutdown. That will show him, right? He´s in Mar-a-Lago laughing it up, having a good time, and golfing. It´s going up to 72 today, and 75 tomorrow. 20 degrees warmer than DC. The public is loving it. Congress cannot pull off a simple budget resolution. The
The Las Vegas police took the unusual step on Friday of releasing key details about the continuing investigation into the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds of others. (Snip) Investigators have uncovered extensive details about the internet search history on Mr. Paddock’s computer, including child pornography, guidance on ballistics and information about SWAT team practices. Law enforcement officials believe Mr. Paddock had recently lost a “significant amount of wealth,” and that may have led him to open fire from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
The Department of Justice announced Friday it intends to retry New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez, two months after a federal judge declared a mistrial in the high-profile bribery case. “Today, the United States filed a notice of intent to retry Sen. Robert Menendez and Dr. Salomon Melgen and requested that the court set the case for retrial at the earliest possible date,” Department of Justice spokesperson Wyn Hornbuckle said in a statement. “The conduct alleged in the indictment is serious and warrants retrial before a jury of citizens in the District of New Jersey. “ There was no immediate response from
On the eve of the first anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration, it is worthwhile to reflect on the significance of his presidency for the quality of our nation’s politics. Some Americans have criticized the president as a threat to our democratic way of life. They point to his brawling rhetoric, his tendency to insult and demean his political opponents, and contend that these habits undermine the norms of civility that sustain a healthy democracy. (Snip) Nevertheless, to be fair to President Trump—and to reassure ourselves about the state of our country—it is worth pointing out that when it comes to
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau -- a Democratic Party creation to put more limo libs on the federal budget -- finally protecting consumers from a predator: itself Mick Mulvaney, the new director of the agency, just requested zero dollars from public money in his budget. From the Los Angeles Times: In his first quarterly funding request as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Mick Mulvaney is asking for nothing. “This letter is to inform you that for the Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2018, the Bureau is requesting $0,” he wrote Wednesday to Janet L. Yellen, chair of the Federal Reserve, which
U.S. President Donald J. Trump is set to pass up a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May for the second time this month, as he reportedly has no plans to meet her at the globalist Davos economic forum. Mrs. May had been hoping for a “clear the air” meeting with the president at the Swiss resort, according to The Telegraph, after the two clashed over President Trump sharing messages on Twitter highlighting Islamic extremist violence. The paper reports that government sources had earlier revealed plans to “engineer an encounter” between the U.S. and UK leaders, who are both attending the summit focused
WASHINGTON — Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has refused to answer a broad array of queries from the House Intelligence Committee about his time working for President Donald Trump, leading the committee chairman to authorize a subpoena. The developments Tuesday brought to the forefront questions about White House efforts to control what Bannon tells Congress about his time in Trump’s inner circle, and whether Republicans on Capitol Hill would force the issue. The congressional subpoena came the same day The New York Times reported that Bannon, a former far-right media executive and recently scorned Trump adversary, has been
A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive
After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in
Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a
Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP? Obama being Obama, with his solar-system-sized ego intact, has been promising to do
The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C. (Photo) Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino warned the release of the FISA report will destroy the image of his former boss Barack Obama.“Take it to
California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.
Former FBI director James B. Comey is joining the faculty of his alma mater, the College of William & Mary, and plans to teach a course on ethical leadership at the school’s Washington center starting in the fall. Comey, whom President Trump fired last year, will have a nontenured position as an executive professor in education, the school announced Friday. His course will be offered through the W&M Washington Center to students of the public college based in Williamsburg, Va. Comey will teach the course in fall 2018, spring 2019 and summer 2019 with executive assistant professor Drew Stelljes.
During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as
Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,
The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,
Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
For the second time in less than a year, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested in Florida, and this time, cops say, he threatened to sexually assault the arresting officer´s wife. Anderson, 24, who was arrested at around 2:15am for going 105 miles-per-hour in a 45 zone, was placed in the back of the police vehicle and ´stated that when he got out he was going to find (the officer´s) wife, f--k her and n-t in her eye,´ according to the the police report with the Broward County Sheriff´s Office.
