If he ever gambled at a blackjack table you can be sure that if Donald Trump was dealt a pair of tens, or better, he’d split them and double down. If nothing else, the last three years have revealed that Trump doesn’t play for chump change. Though some of his bets defy conventional wisdom, and are patently harmful, he’s all in all of the time. The pending impeachment trial in the Senate gives Trump a huge opportunity to exercise his intuition, survival instincts, and the New York doggedness that won him fame and (perhaps) fortune.
The Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee have approved the two articles of impeachment against President Trump.
Next week, it will be the full house. The writing is on the wall. Next month, the fork turns and Mitch McConnell takes his seat at the front of the impeachment table.
Now, perhaps, it is a time to reflect.
You know it has been a charade, a fraud, a hoax when a side, who has complained non-stop about the impeachment process, has no problem with the upcoming US Senate trial, even knowing that the man in charge is assuring an acquittal.
For weeks, the Republican Party has slammed the Democrats focused upon what they consider to be unfair hearings. They invaded one of the hearings armed with fried chicken and their phones which was against the House security rules. They tweeted non-stop how crooked was the intel chairman, Adam Schiff. They claim Schiff lied when he read a parody. They don't state that Schiff said publcly that what he was going to read was "essentially" what was written.
mpeachment judgment day is hheree. So, should the House of Representatives impeach? My answer is yes, BUT.
I just saw about 5 minutes of an really fascinating discussion regarding what qualifies as an impeachment offense. Professor Jonathan Turley, who says he is not a Trump supporter, says the case in which he last testified about similar issue (Clinton), is very similar in terms of anger and "paucity of evidence". He says impeachment under these circumstances sets a bad standard for future presidents. Perhaps it will.
Since the beginning of the Ringside Politics TV and radio shows, we have enjoyed an annual Thanksgiving tradition of awarding our “Turkey of the Year” to recognize individuals who distinguished themselves in a particularly foolish way. It seems appropriate since turkeys are commonly regarded as one of the most dim-witted animals on the planet.
The goal of the House Democratic Party leadership is to use the impeachment inquiry to destroy President Donald Trump. They hope to impeach him, followed by conviction and removal from the U.S. Senate. Otherwise, they believe he will be so politically damaged that he will resign before the next election. Ironically, the exact opposite political result is occurring.
Today, Roger Stone, a political operative who had worked with Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, was convicted on seven counts ranging from lying to Congress to witness tampering. His sentencing will take place on February 6, 2020. Stone could face up to 50 years in prison.
Prosecutors argued that Stone lied about his efforts to gather information for the Trump campaign from WikiLeaks about the hacking of Democratic National Committee computers.
How indecent can one man and his royal pretender be?
President Donald Trump and US Senator Rand Paul want to out a whistleblower who launched the Ukraine controversy that has morphed into an impeachment inquiry. Both men, including their right-wing media dogs are yapping loudly and coarsely about how the whistleblower is anti-Trump, therefore, the entire impeachment proceeding must be fatally tainted. They claim that not only must the government watchdog’s identity be revealed but he must face the public crucible.
Today, President Donald Trump fired back against CNN, a left-wing network masquerading as the home of “excellence in journalism.” His attorneys sent a four-page letter to the network pledging to sue for a “substantial payment of damages” for their history of biased coverage.
In 2012, Donald Trump considered entering the GOP presidential race. Eventually, he decided to forgo a campaign and endorse Mitt Romney. Undoubtedly, it boosted Romney’s campaign and helped him secure the GOP presidential nomination.
In the 2012 general election, Romney had plenty of opportunities to win the race, but played defense during the final weeks of the campaign and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
