Quote of the day

“Impeachment is still off the table, Chimpy.”

Nancy Pelosi sent a “Dear Colleague” letter to lawmakers Sunday warning that Democrats would enter “into a whole new stage of investigation” if the White House does not hand over the whistleblower complaint by Thursday.

Oh, dear. A strongly worded letter to her own damn colleagues. How eff’ing brave of her.

Which leads us to our quote of the day, from AOC, naturally:

“At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior — it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it.”

    Completely worthless. This is our new normal as long as Nancy gets to fundraise off of fat nixon’s lawlessness and maintain the outdated status quo while the worthless beltway media continues to act “shocked” at the vulgarity and outright corruption from their ratings creation.

    At this rate, Nancy deserves to hand the gavel over to McCarthy during the next session of congress. FFS

  3. Congressional impeachment is pointless. The GOP Senate majority will never, ever, vote yes.

        You have greater faith than I in the efficacy of empty gestures.

        The only thing we can do is vote the bastards out–not just Benedict Donald but EVERY Madoka-damned traitor in the Treason Party (fka GOP).

      Give up much? Get it documented and collect scalps in the Senate next. And yes McTurtle won’t let it reach the floor for a vote so let’s tie it around his neck to go with obstructing efforts to secure our elections from Russian interference. House impeachment with Senate abdication of the of their responsibilities should be front and center for the next election cycle. It’s only pointless because we have accepted this bullshit as the status quo.

        Hello Ming. While McConnell has said he will pull every trick to keep witnesses out and to limit what Democrats can do, he can not stop an impeachment vote. It has to go to the floor within so many days. I think that is what I read. Hugs

        Scottie,
        My understanding is that the House votes to impeach. The Senate votes to convict and remove. I would not underestimate McTurtle’s ability to subvert process, but if it is true that the Senate has to bring it to the floor for discussion and a vote, even if it fails, each and everyone of our congress critters would on the record so they can’t pretend to not not be flying cover for Cheetolini.

        I believe there is a parliamentary trick, the bill is introduced with privilege and the senate majority leader must act on it within a short, set amount of time, something like 10 days. I cannot remember what it is called, tho. Impeachment is spelled explicitly in the users manual, er, Constitution, and so has its own rules that must be followed.

      But the voting public HAS to be shown that Rules of Law still apply, and since impeachment is our sole recourse, then pull that tool outta the box, AND USE IT! I agree, without the Senate voting to convict, he’ll remain in office, and attempt to use that failure as a win, which he so often does. But an impeachment hearing can go on for months, and the more testimony we get to hear about all the laws he’s broken, the better our chances are next Nov.
      The big problem is almost everyone’s reluctance to DO SOMETHING, and it applies to not only the politicians, but to us, the voting public, as well. Contact your congress-critters, and demand they get off the fence. Attend a rally or two. Contribute to a candidate whose actions and aspirations agree with yours. Start from where you are, and use what you can.
      It’s far past time for another “Million-man March” on Wash. DC, and if we could increase that to 3 or 4 million, so much the better. Protesting and Civil Disobedience DO work.

        Which side do protests work for?

        The revulsion of Stupid White Folks against those “uppity Negroes”, “uppity wimmin”, and “dirty hippies” of the ’60s and ’70s protests did a lot to cement the Stupid White Folks vote for the Treason Party (fka GOP).

        I was referring to the protests in other parts of the world, which have resulted in the various govt’s to at least reconsider their positions, if not to actually capitulate – even in Hong Kong. But I agree with you on that whole revulsion thing, but it’s in our favor that those folks are in a minority.

    I can’t help but wonder how many of the short-fingered vulgarian’s ill-gotten Ameros have found their way into how many pol’s purses? Say, like, I dunno, for example Nancy Pelosi’s.

    It’s the only thing that makes a bit of sense to me – Trump has prolly bought off, over the years, a majority of those currently in Congress.

    No, I’m serious.

    Can you think of any other reason for all this hemming and hawing? Your average Joe Blow, democrat asked to fill our current House seats, would vote for impeachment within hours of being installed (were thy not instead inclined to tar and feather the asshole and run him out of town on a splintery rail. Or have him executed by firing squad. Televised, of course, as all good treason sentences ought to be.)

    I mean Jesus H Kerist on a crutch, what’s to be afraid of? The buffoon is an obese, retarded septuagenarian who is also a physical coward?! What could he possible do to anyone? Cringe and possible fart in fear?

    This would seem to be the product of a “kick the can down the road” policy. In the beginning of this term, we could have reasonably had a debate about crimes, etc., and come to the conclusion that a Pence presidency was better than a Trump presidency (we’d be wrong, of course, but…). Now, I think the issue is that, if we impeach, we give the R’s a chance to put someone on the ticket in 2020 that could make them look reasonable, and Nancy doesn’t want that. It’s a political risk, but at this late point, I tend to agree.

    The R’s are the party of Trump, and we must not give them any way to distance themselves from that. He is not an anomaly that will go away when he goes away, he is simply what they have always been, but he speaks out loud. More to the point, he is what they always will be, and that must be addressed by the American people.

    We really have no answer to the “both sides” argument anymore. How are we supposed to claim that Democrats are better when their response to every Trump corruption is, “Meh, we’re cool with that.”
