Voters are ready to jail or fire senior law enforcement officials who illegally targeted President Trump, but most think they are unlikely to be punished. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters consider it likely that senior federal law enforcement officials broke the law in an effort to prevent Trump from winning the presidency. Thirty-nine percent (39%) say that’s unlikely. This includes 36% who say it’s Very Likely they broke the law to get Trump and 24% who say it’s Not At All Likely. These findings are virtually unchanged in surveying since February of last year.

This ought to be treated as a serious threat to our democratic Republic, treason if you will, with extreme sentences for anyone convicted of engagement. Instead it is just more garden variety political skullduggery, "worse than Watergate". The prisons, recently cleared of non-violent drug convicts, ought to be filled to overflowing with minions in the law enforcement and intel communities who failed to protect and defend this nation from enemies foreign and domestic. And cells in the Colorado SuperMax are too good for the ringleaders, which may include a former US President.

Those who tried to subvert my vote should receive severe punishment. Bankruptcy for paying lawyers' bills, as so many who were innocent were bankrupted. Jail time. Tar and feathers. If a severe example is not set, someone else will do it again, and soon rather than later.

Yes, what #1 said. A majority of voters believes thinks government officials can break the law and get away with it. This undermines the rule of law, one of the fundamental principles that protects our freedom.

The jail time should just be until the gallows can be built (we're going to need quite a few, running 24/7) or until a firing squad of volunteers can be gathered and supplied with ammo.

Essentially meaningless unless and until the agencies that employed and enabled these acts, and thousands of others over a period of many years, are not completely ABOLISHED, the persons employed there FIRED, and no similar agencies and departments to be created, EVER. The rot did not begin with Ovomit or W or Clinton. Been going on, certainly with the FBI and major sections of Treasury, pretty much since the beginning. There is no, repeat, NO, justification under out Constitution for a Federal Police Force. Referring to the Attorney General, or the FBI Director, or the like, as being "chief law enforcement boss" for the United States is not only wrong, it's disgusting. Go read the histories of, say, Imperial Rome. Or of the Byzantines. Or Imperial China or Japan or the Ottomans. Agencies such as this ALWAYS become the Secret Police, ALWAYS become a unchallenged and unchallengable power in their own right, ALWAYS serve the agency and the minions thereof rather than the people or the nation. ALWAYS. NO exceptions whatever. Keep law enforcement at the state (occasionally) or local level with the employees accountable to the citizens. The feds certainly aren't, and obviously aren't accountable even to the Chief Executive, or we wouldn't be having some of these issues and discussions.

Democrats will be against any kind of punishment. They don't like law enforcement, as seen at the street level with their abuse of police, ICE, Border Patrol, etc. They certainly will not want the DOJ to enforce any laws!

TIME magazine has named its Person of the Year, a teenager who skipped school to travel around the world telling people that they are horrible and the planet is doomed. It’s a living. Perhaps her Malthusian visions will be fulfilled by future experience. But it’s not very likely. In fact, her position is at odds with what we know: that a more responsible approach to climate requires action from China and India, not the West.

Secretary of State William Seward wrote it and Abraham Lincoln issued it, but much of the credit for the Thanksgiving Proclamation should probably go to a woman named Sarah Josepha Hale. A prominent writer and editor, Hale had written the children’s poem “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” originally known as “Mary’s Lamb,” in 1830 and helped found the American Ladies Magazine, which she used a platform to promote women’s issues.

Tonight there are plenty of delicious tears from Bevin supporters," the party said in a Facebook post Tuesday night.

The tactics some Republicans are using to defend President Donald Trump against being impeached (or indicted) by the House and convicted (or removed from office) by the Senate include confusing the public about what these terms mean. One thrust is to suggest that for a president to be impeached, he must have committed a crime.

What is an impeachable offense? Rep. Maxine Waters, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, says the definition is purely political: “whatever Congress says it is—there is no law.” She’s wrong. At the Constitutional Convention of 1787, the Framers debated impeachment of a president. Some argued for the power of Congress to remove the president for “maladministration” or other open-ended terms that appeared in several state constitutions. Others, including James Madison, opposed such vague criteria, fearful that they would turn the republic into a British-style parliamentary system, in which Congress could remove a president over political differences—effectively a vote of no confidence.

By the time Harvey Milk's supervisors in the US Navy officially questioned him about his sexuality, he had graduated from officer school and served as a diving officer on a submarine rescue ship during the Korean War. Then his superiors caught him in a park that was popular with gay men, his nephew said. The sighting raised questions about Milk's sexual orientation in an era when the military banned gay, lesbian and bisexual service members. Milk was forced to resign. In a move that signalled an about-face on the issue of gay rights, the Navy began to construct the USNS Harvey Milk

With a House impeachment vote a foregone conclusion, the battle to remove President Trump from office has moved to the Senate. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer grabbed control of the debate Monday with demands for what he called "fairness" in the president's trial. Schumer wants the Senate to allow testimony from four witnesses the House did not interview: former national security adviser John Bolton, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, key Mulvaney aide Robert Blair, and Office of Management and Budget official Michael Duffey. House Democratic impeachers wanted the men to testify, but after the White House, claiming privilege, refused, House leaders chose not to try to force

Clearly Greta Thunberg is being exploited by her cynical puppetmasters, but equally clearly she’s a tiresome, bizarre Marxist scold whose exploitation of the hapless dummies who buy into the climate change hoax is part of what is an increasingly violent plot to undermine capitalism and freedom. Recently, the cretins at TIME, which shockingly still exists in 2019, named her “Person of the Year.” (Snip) In 2029, after the world hasn’t ended but her usefulness has, she’ll be a Jeopardy question and probably shacked up with an unemployed performance artist named Björn in an Oslo suburb. Fun fact: “Greta Thunberg” is Swedish for “Cindy Sheenhan.”

Yelling and screaming and interrupting people while they eat dinner or try to have an event is the Democrats' favorite activity — until it's used on them. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) hosted a town hall event celebrating a bill recognizing the Armenian genocide Saturday. His remarks came to a screeching halt when protesters began to jeer and chant "LIAR" and "you're going to jail!" at him. It was beautiful. Many people in the room seemed confused as to why people were protesting the shampeachment clown show. This is not surprising to anyone who only watches mainstream news, which makes it appear that Americans hate Donald Trump.

The comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello did a routine about baseball that is a cult favorite. In it, they kept batting back and forth the question, “Who’s on First?” “What” was on second and “I Don’t Know” was on third. “I Don’t Give a Darn” was shortstop. “Who’s On First” was a humorous and outlandish exchange between the two comics. As the routine went, so politics goes today. President Trump labels any Republican who questions his erratic and narcissistic style as a RINO (Republican In Name Only).

Texas - Beto O’Rourke isn’t running for Senate again, and Democrats who have unusually high hopes for Texas in 2020 are facing an unsettled landscape. There’s no clear frontrunner among a dozen Democrats challenging Republican incumbent John Cornyn. None have raised big money and most candidates remain widely unknown. O’Rourke narrowly lost to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz last year and his presidential bid flamed out in November. Democrats urged the former El Paso congressman to run again for Senate, but the deadline to get on the 2020 ballot in Texas came and went this week.

"The president is not a lawyer," she told the BBC in an exclusive interview, adding: "He's not law trained." In a wide-ranging conversation, she also said poor women were victims of restrictive abortion access. The US president is expected to be impeached by the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
