Trump supporters are right to feel vindication after Robert Mueller's testimony before Congress. (SnipThe real truth is Mueller's testimony was never going to interrupt preexisting trends. Support for impeachment has been stable for a year at around 40 percent in the Fox News poll of registered voters. (Snip)But President Trump and Republicans would be wrong to assume that the Democrats' drive to impeachment has ended. The will to overturn the 2016 election never depended on Mueller. He was merely the most likely instrument of Trump's undoing. Democrats have called for impeachment since Trump's inaugural. What they have lacked is the means.

How are we going to act when one of their people gets in again? That is really my question. There is no way I am going to sit back and let it ride, like I have for my entire life. What they have done is reject a legitimate election results because they do not like it.

The money quote: the impeachment debate is not about what Trump has done, is doing, or might do. It is about whether he and the social forces he represents are entitled to rule.

Impeachment isn’t in the cards, but the continued threat and coverage is part of the drumbeat we will hear through the summer, along with various allegations and screeching. After Labor Day will come the final Uniparty push to stop PDT’s re-election campaign. The GOPe has Mitt in the wings, and Weld has the band already back together.

I would prefer that they keep yelling "Impeach the MF" up to election day rather than have them pass some useful legislation that Trump might sign. Let the country see what a bunch of useless political jerks they are. Joe Biden for president !!! Seriously???

With the surety of night following day, the Baltimore riots have been followed by calls for more government spending to fight poverty in our distressed inner cities. President Barack Obama says "massive investments in urban communities" could "make a difference right now." Representative Elijah Cummings, who represents Maryland in Congress, says, "We have to invest in our cities and our children." And House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, who also represents the state, says, "But we're going to have to as a country invest if we're going to have the kinds of communities we want." But the idea that we haven't been "investing" in Baltimore is nonsense.

It is apparently part of Robert Mueller’s contract with the media that he must always be described as “honorable” and a “lifelong Republican.” (After this week, we can add “dazed and confused” to his appellation.) If it matters that Mueller is a “lifelong Republican,” then I guess it matters that he hired a team of left-wing zealots. Of the 17 lawyers in Mueller’s office, 14 are registered Democrats.(Snip)As for Mueller being “honorable,” Steven Hatfill and the late Sen. Ted Stevens might beg to differ. After the 2001 anthrax attacks, the FBI, under Director Mueller’s close supervision, spent SEVEN YEARS pursuing Hatfill,

Democrat Elijah Cummings enjoys a safe seat in Congress, so safe that the congressman thought he could front the clan that wants to impeach President Donald John Trump. In response, President Trump showed the nation how third world parts of Cummings' district in Baltimore is. Baltimore's last Republican mayor was Theodore McKeldin, whose term ended 52 years ago. His successor was Nancy Pelosi's brother, Thomas D'Alesandro III. The population was 939,024 and mainly white back then. Now the population is 602,495 and mainly black. In 2018, USA Today dubbed Baltimore the most dangerous city in America.

(Snip) “He is violating a different provision of the Constitution by obstructing the Congress in its lawful and constitutional duty. That would not be a crime, that would be a misdemeanor.

President Donald Trump criticized House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) on Saturday for failing to help his district. He could just as well have pointed out Cummings does a terrible job of “oversight.” Whether as chair of the committee or ranking member, Cummings has been a partisan hack. He abuses his power for vendettas against the Trump administration. And when Obama was in charge, Cummings shielded him from scrutiny. In February, Cummings conducted a farcical hearing that featured former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Cohen had already been convicted of lying to Congress and was already on his way to federal prison. Cummings did not care:

On Friday, Guatemala chose to help stop illegal immigration over paying a tariff on goods they sell here. Mexico did the same thing last month. President Donald John Trump has both countries agreeing to give asylum to people from other countries instead of waving them through on their way to the USA. Mexico had been providing buses for them.

Under the headline, 'We are African Americans, we are patriots, and we refuse to sit idly by,' 149 African American members of the Obama administration proclaimed that they 'refuse to sit idly by' during 'the poisoning of our democracy,' and Obama seemingly signaled his agreement. The op-ed, published on Friday by The Washington Post, was written in response to Trump writing that four progressive women of color currently serving in Congress—three of whom were born in the US

This editorial is intended as a friendly, cheer-up gesture to our friends in the 7th District of Maryland. They’re stinging from the insults of President Trump, who, in a feud with Congressman Elijah Cummings, sent out a twitter characterizing the district as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.” The jibe was met with a riposte by a Baltimore native, CNN’s Victor Blackwell, who choked up in broadcast that has gone viral. We hope Mr. Blackwell can take some comfort in the fact that when it comes to rats, Baltimore has got nothing on Mr. Trump’s hometown. The other day we were transferring trains
