Two House Democrats — one of whom is flirting with switching to the Republican Party — are on the record as against the impeachment of President Donald Trump.The rest of the 31 House Dems who represent districts that President Donald Trump won in the 2016 presidential election have either come out for impeachment or are thought to be leaning toward impeachment.As of yet, there is not a single Republican in the House or Senate who has publicly backed impeachment and/or the removal from office of President Trump. So — an almost straight party-line process is in the cards.The Dems can only lose 16 more members of their House caucus to lose

I was thinking the same thing, #1. I hope the Democrats’ attempted coup will blow up in their faces and lose them the majority in both houses for decades to come.

As much as they hate it, the Demon-Rat overlords have already given several of these endangered House members permission to vote "no". As long as they are able to pass this bogus impeachment, they know it won't be unanimous by the Demon-Rats anyway. So let a few endangered Demon-Rats save face with their districts. There is no depth of pure evil that Demon-Rats won't allow themselves to wallow in!!!!!!

That assumes a couple things ... one of which is that sometime between now and November 2020, the RINO Republican establishment doesn't find a way to screw up a sure thing. Like they have multiple times in the past.

On one of the fake news networks today they were berating a conservative commentator who made this point, "fact checking" him by arguing that almost none of the vulnerable Republicans who voted to impeach Clinton lost their seats in the subsequent election. Fools. Clinton was obviously guilty. Trump is obviously innocent.

Only 12? It should be all of them but demonrat voters are only interested in freebies, felons and thugs of every stripe, corruption, and greed. Remember when Soros got some of them into office by getting them to pretend they're not hard-liners? He did the same with state AGs and all election commissioners. Now he's working on another area.

Just keep in mind about half of the country supports impeachment. It's like waking up one day and discovering half of the people you encounter in the course of the typical day are absolutely convinced that he sun rises in the West and sets in the East. To expect logic to overcome peer pressure, the natural need for humans to have a sense of belonging, and the power of propoganda to define what belonging constitutes, is foolish.

Most of the 31 know voting "No" will put them in no-man's land; Democrats will shun them and Republican don't wan them. Voting "Yes" means Democrats will find them high-paying lobbying or consulting jobs. They will continue to get invitations to the desired cocktail parties. And they will get their $179,000+ Representative pay for life. As self-serving money-grubbers first and foremost, most of the 31 will vote "Yes."

If anyone reading these words lives in one of these districts, you owe it to yourself to express your opinion directly to your congress-person! Don't just sound off on web sites like this but call your district office and complain they are NOT representing you. If we can hold the line and block the extra point kick, it would be terrific to say they tried impeachment ... and it failed! It doesn't even make it to the Senate and dies in the House. PS: If this farce passes 218-216, and it's all Demo-rats --- then this means all out war. Scorched earth and no prisoners from now on!

Even those who vote no will lose their seats, unless they switch party affiliation. The goal for 2020 is to reelect President Trump, gain four senate seats (Kirsten Gillibrand comes to mind and there are a few others) and to get back everyone of those seats that we lost in 2018 and then some. It's all doable with Trump. I don't believe in polls. Like the government they're rigged.

In reality the media talking heads and scribblers don’t have a clue how many leftist and liberal Democrats, who must run down ballot from President Trump in the 2020 election, are going to be wiped out when President Trump is re-elected. After that happens, there is bound to be a substantial number of sad Democrats on election night.

There are two ways of looking at this: 1. Trump is the victim of deranged, evil Democrats hellbent on unseating him by any means necessary. 2. Trump is in control of this whole unreal "impeachment" trajectory and is using it to expose the deranged, evil Democrats and their deranged, evil media for who they really are, even at the expense of being "impeached". Given his track record for outsmarting and winning over the deranged, evil Democrats, I'm betting the farm on 2.

President Trump, as he is impeached, holds Michigan campaign rally originally appeared on abcnews.go.com As voting began in the House to make him the third president in United States history to be impeached, President Donald Trump took the stage in Michigan on Wednesday for a much-anticipated campaign rally. Trump hit the stage for his last campaign rally of the year in Battle Creek, Michigan, just as Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff introduced the two articles of impeachment facing the president. Minutes later, he was impeached on the first article. "It doesn't feel like we're being impeached," Trump said, to cheers, just after stepping to the podium.

Hollywood elites celebrated their version of Christmas on Wednesday as the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump along mostly partisan lines, with Democrats passing the two articles of impeachment brought by the House Judiciary Committee. A slew of far-left celebrities including Rob Reiner, Alyssa Milano, and Michael Moore gloated over the proceedings, calling President Trump “criminally corrupt” and a “motherfucker.” They also denigrated the Republican Party for being filled with “white men.” Filmmaker Michael Moore said he gained access to the House gallery to watch the proceedings in person. “Congress is about to impeach a lawless, criminal president,” the Bowling for Columbine director tweeted.

You could say the same of the movie itself. We can debate the importance of final chapters, whether they really have, or should have, the power to elevate or invalidate everything that came before them—and though the ninth episode in this generation-spanning story has been advertised with the promise that “The Saga Will End,” that’s a promise that has been made and broken before.

WaPo Fact Checker Slams Pelosi

A Washington Post fact-check released Thursday gave House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) four Pinocchios for a "bogus talking point" about the number of children killed with firearms each year. Pelosi has repeatedly claimed that 47 percent of gun deaths were "teenagers or children," according to the Post. CDC data show the real number is closer to 9 percent, meaning the House speaker exaggerates the true number by more than fivefold. This discrepancy led the Post to assign Pelosi's claim the harshest rating on its fact-checking scale.

This week, Comey admitted that Inspector General Michael Horowitz discovered “real sloppiness,” which is “concerning.” That characterization does not begin to cover the problems described by Horowitz, which this week prompted a highly unusual public rebuke from the court that reviews secret warrant applications under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The FISA court called the FBI’s conduct “antithetical to the heightened duty of candor” that applies in such cases.

Appearing on MSNBC, Brennan was asked by host Chris Hayes about "abuses" uncovered by Horowitz, who claimed he found 17 significant errors in the renewed FISA applications into former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, while Horowitz was a member of the Obama administration. "Well clearly, there were mistakes made based on the inspector general's reports," Brennan responded.
