Thank God, the Congressional GOP found an honest man.
Today, Mitch Romney defied his party, his president, his future re-election and followed his conscience. He stated that he is a religious man and as such, took his oath as a promise to God to be fair and just. In doing so, he felt the evidence was simply overwhelming to support the impeachment of Donald J. Trump. He said Trump committed an impeachable offense and should be removed.
Nancy Pelosi has indicated today that the articles of impeachment will be forwarded to the US Senate, next week.
The Mitch McConnell-GOP impeachment show is evolving into an immorality play of near-biblical proportions. The fate of the nation’s values hinges upon oaths we take and the truths we allow. The Impeachment of Donald Trump trial is less about the future of the 45th President of the United States, but more about the legacy we leave this nation for future generations.
America, as I know it, died yesterday right in front of our eyes when Attorney General Bill Barr displayed his fealty to the man who put him back into the national spotlight.
Also falling before our eyes were the lessons of Watergate.
What has kept this country above all other nations has been our judicial system integrity and our governmental checks and balances.
Barr mutilated those and his fellow pro-Donald Trump loyalists applauded at the bloody sight.
We’re hitting the last day of 2018, with thousands of men and women on furlough or staying on their jobs without pay due to a government shutdown. Wouldn’t it be nice if, just for one last day of 2018, we could make sense of this border wall debate separating them from their paychecks?
Can't we, as a New Year's resolution, make up our mind that common sense and facts prime over politics?
After all, we’re talking about The Wall.
It had been a long day at the U.S. Senate as the Judiciary Committee heard from both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Millions of Americans witnessed an incredible spectacle as both people claimed 100% confidence in their recollection of events.
During the questioning of Dr. Ford, Republicans turned over the duties to an Arizona prosecutor who seemed to miss many opportunities to highlight discrepancies in the statements of the accuser. Of course, the Senate Democrats spent almost all their time praising Dr. Ford for her courage.
Can you believe that a meeting held in the oval office has sparked a controversy being heard around the world in which the debate being is "a-hole" vs. "a-house"? Instead of discussing a budget deal and the wall and whether the dreamers are facing a nightmare, not of their own choosing over an issue basically not over their own choosing, the topic of discussion, for better or worse, has degenerated to what was said at a presidential meeting. The DACA kids and young adults came to America because their parents wanted a better life and as a result, the parents, broke the law and technically speaking, so did the kids. So, who should be blamed for this conversation meltdown?
Today, US Senator Dick Durbin questioned the Secretary of Homeland Security, Kiersten Nielsen about the now infamous Immigration reform meeting that occurred last Thursday in the oval office. During that meeting, President Donald Trump is said to have used S--t hole (or is it now S--t house?) in describing certain black and brown-populated countries.
Many Trump supporters on social media, once again, are calling the Haitian, African, South American comments as just more liberal PC and hate coming from the President’s antagonists.
Perhaps it is PC to them. But more than anything else for those not bothered by a long trail of hateful, despicable comments by Donald Trump is the simple fact, we once again, are witnessing another episode of the Trump administration and President Donald Trump, lying.
