impeachment plan is actually working?

Let’s examine the impact so far of what was widely touted as a historic impeachment of President Donald Trump: His job approval is back at its highest level since taking office 1,068 long days ago, up six points since the House began impeachment. Donations to help the billionaire’s reelection bid continue at a record pace. Polling support for impeachment and removal from office, which are wildly popular on the Democratic left, has slid to minority support nationally in most surveys. House support for impeaching the president remains

FTA: “ I am not sure,” GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell wryly observed, “what leverage there is in refraining from sending us something we do not want” 😊Too funny!

If The Senate ever sees this mess and doesn't just toss it to the curb with prejudice, I'll be having the feelings of a disposed American with no loyalty to our system. I've never had this feeling of vulnerablness, and I'm not willing to take it!! We taxpayers are being very disrespectfully treated like children, and if that traitor john roberts gets involved -- well, who knows?

Pelosi is waiting, hoping for more dirt to throw in the impeachment soup. She has nothing to gain by sending it on to the Senate until she has something more to put the "abuse of power" and "obstruction" folders, which are currently empty.

What's this point it is a defensive situation. Plans A thru C or D have failed to dislodge PDT from office. The UNIPARTY will continue until it succeeds or implodes. Here'e where "impeachment" stands -- ALL parties involved make out in this Impeachment Interruptus: The Dem radicals can crow about impeaching the MF; the Dem "moderates" can claim this was a serious act and that the delay is necessary while Pelosi negotiates hard because the Senate will not hold a "fair trial"; the GOPe House minority gaining MAGA/KAG cred at the grassroots for being totally unified in defeat; the UNIPARTY Senate, claiming the Dems have no case, will not hold a trial that would create consternation for those on the take; and PDT has a great rally cudgel for the upcoming election season. And everyone now has a great fund raising tool!! This "impeachment" is a win-win-win-win-win. Now, on to Plan E or F or whatever...something other than impeachment. With primary season soon upon us, it's the GOPe's turn to do something. (Notice the recent spate of "moderate" Republicans "speaking out"?)

Chuck U. suddenly wants "fairness" and "witnesses" in the Senate trial. He is tripping all over Pelosi's sham impeachment where the rules were 999,999 to 1 against the Republicans in the sham process. No witnesses for Trump, no lawyer, no due process but now all of a sudden Chuck U. wants witnesses and fairness. Fair to them is Republican surrender.

Anyone in the business of making predictions about American politics these days shouldn’t be. But an examination of some current data and observations as of today can at least provide a general sense of direction for the 2020 presidential election in just 35 weeks and the prospects for President Donald Trump’s reelection.

Oh, how Americans love to hate hypocrisy! [Snip] A most frequent target for hypocrisy, naturally, is members of Congress, who as a group routinely earn low job approval ratings from Americans, often in the teens. Now, come to find out, Americans are hypocritical about hypocrisy. Gallup’s just done a new survey. It found that voters, who routinely disapprove of the job those clowns on Capitol Hill are doing, really like the job their own congressman is doing. Fifty-nine percent say

The U.S. military is about to experience another first: Barring injury in the next few weeks, an enlisted soldier is about to become the first female Green Beret in Army history. That comes seven years after the Pentagon lifted its longtime ban on women serving in combat roles. As with all special operators, the military does not release names or identification. But the woman is expected to graduate soon from the rugged, roughly year-long qualification course and become a Special Forces engineer sergeant. Another woman is also making her way through the demanding yearlong course. The length of the course depends on the operator’s specialty

I said, It's official Senior citizens are getting their own reality show. (Snip) Are you entering your golden years and looking for romance? The Producers of ‘The Bachelor’ are looking for active and outgoing single men and women In Their Golden Years for a new exciting dating show! Hopefully, the new dating game isn’t too very exciting or they risk losing some cast members. And there shouldn’t be a lot of stair-climbing in the mansion. The future show also shouldn’t air between 5 and 6 p.m. when local restaurants offer their discounted Blue Plate Specials. And as seniors know now, 9 p.m. is the new midnight. So that’s too late to show it. Yes, they could record it.

Have you noticed somehow once-pedestrian television ratings, those arcane numbers that used to be the subject of churning stomachs only within that industry, have come now to resemble sports franchises, each with its own avid fan base rooting for their favorite, as if it mattered? As a reflection of the bitter partisan splits affecting many Americans, people privately cheer good news for one network and bad news for another. And vice versa. Fox News is kind of like the dominant New England Patriots that win a lot — too much in the eyes of non-New Englanders. Fox News has won a lot of ratings competitions since Rupert Murdoch founded it

A strength of America’s enduring political parties, among the oldest surviving such groupings in the world, is their malleability. Like chameleons and some sea creatures, they can change colors depending on their environment. [Snip] The modern American political reality is that the Republican and Democratic parties today are basically just brand names. They’ve become hollow, fundraising fuselages of once vibrant organizations that get captured every four or eight years by someone new with a contemporary personality packaged for the times. That personality slaps

On paper, Joe Biden appears to be maintaining a modest, if wobbly lead for the Democrats’ presidential nomination this year. He leads nationally among Democrats, as he has for the last year, even before his April announcement. Biden is ahead of the relentless Sen. Bernie Sanders nationally, a margin that could evaporate without wins. However, this isn’t a national race yet. It’s a four-state warm-up sprint that has

Once upon a time, news in these United States was, well, new. And people wanted to know the latest happenings. Now, however, much of the nation’s news and the people in it — even what they end up saying during these events — are pretty predictable. That’s in large part because so many Americans have fallen into ruts of partisan thinking that aren’t really thinking at all, just safe recitations of talking points that require no listening or manners.

Judging by the huge sums of money Americans are forking over to politicians this cycle, they are very much into the 2020 presidential cycle, even before any primary votes are cast or counted. [Snip] As the Iowa caucuses loom on Feb. 3, the remaining contenders are sucking up vast amounts of smaller donations, indicating grassroots enthusiasm but also fueling what could well be an extended and divisive campaign with more survivors fighting longer than usual. Lengthy campaigns are great for candidate hopes and television revenues. But they seriously curtail the time left for Democrats to rally behind the actual nominee as

Former Vice President Joe Biden made an egregious claim during Tuesday’s Democratic debate, saying that a whopping 150 million people have been killed by guns since 2007. Biden was asked how he would stop gun violence, with the moderator noting that “Congress has not been able to pass a major gun legislation in a quarter of a century.” The former vice president said that he is “the only one who ever got it done nationally” before making the false claim that 150 million people have been killed by guns since 2007. “One hundred fifty million people have been killed since 2007,

Even in California, you have to be 18 to get a tattoo, 16 to drive a car, 21 to buy a gun, alcohol, or pot. But if you want to change your gender? Well, then, you just have to be 12. And your public school will be more than happy to help. Need an abortion? Tell your teacher. Want to refill your birth control? Go to the school clinic. Thinking about starting hormone treatments? Your parents will never find out. At least, not under the policy the California Teachers Association is pushing. That’s the amazing revelation from last month’s union meeting.

Should white people sing black spirituals? Western Michigan University is grappling with that question after a black student was triggered and suffered a social media meltdown when a predominantly white choir sang “Wade in the Water.” “So apparently Western Michigan University thinks it’s ok for WHITE peoples to sing negro spirituals while the instructor talking bout ‘these songs don’t belong to one race.’ They sure as hell DO,” WMU music major Shaylee Faught wrote on a social media now seen by more than 1 million people. Faught got triggered after the choir’s black conductor reportedly told the audience that the selections were “American songs” performed “for everyone” and “have no ethnicity.”

A number of pundits have recently argued that younger voters, especially those under 30, are less inclined to be bothered when they hear the word “socialism,” since they have no firsthand memory of the Cold War. To some extent, this must be true. Those who weren’t alive during socialism’s cruelest catastrophes — or even its many banal failures — will be less put off by the idea. Then again, if a presidential candidate were praising the excellent public transportation system of the Third Reich or going on about the some alleged benefit to American slavery, they would rightly be chased from the public square forever

A seven-month deployment in Afghanistan shrouded in secrecy is a key piece of Pete Buttigieg’s pitch to voters in the 2020 presidential race, with the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor arguing that his status as a veteran and his time in a war zone give him foreign policy gravitas and first-hand military experience none of his Democratic primary rivals can claim. That supposed strength, however, ultimately could become a weakness in a potential general election match-up with President Trump and a Republican Party that is already eyeing ways to turn Mr. Buttigieg’s time as a Naval intelligence officer into a liability. Some of those who served alongside Mr. Buttigieg in Afghanistan
Harvey Weinstein in ‘Disbelief,’

Harvey Weinstein is “in disbelief,” but “not delusional,” about his conviction, as he remains under care at Bellevue Hospital before being transferred to Rikers Island, where he’ll be put behind bars. “He’s still in disbelief of the charges he was convicted of. He’s very consistent about his innocence,” one of Weinstein’s attorneys, Arthur Aidala, told Variety over the phone late Wednesday night. Weinstein was convicted Monday on two felony charges: criminal sex act in the first-degree for assaulting Miriam Haley by forcible oral sex in 2006, and rape in the third-degree for raping Jessica Mann in a New York City hotel room in 2013.

Washington - President Donald Trump pushed back Wednesday against criticism that his administration isn’t doing enough to meet the coronavirus threat, as lawmakers called for giving disease fighters much more money than the $2.5 billion the White House has requested. A day after he sought to minimize fears of the virus spreading widely across the U.S., Trump prepared to hold a White House press conference with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He tweeted that the CDC, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and others in the administration are “doing a great job with respect to Coronavirus!” and accused some news outlets of “panicking markets.”

Prison bosses are reportedly worried about how to handle Harvey Weinstein while he is in jail, fearing he may commit suicide—just like Jeffrey Epstein. Weinstein was convicted of rape and sexual assault on Monday and officials at New York prisons are said to be concerned another high-profile inmate could take his own life. Billionaire Epstein hanged himself last August in his cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. Now it is feared Weinstein may have to be kept in a private section of Rikers Island's North Infirmary Command, which is for high-risk inmates, for his own safety.

This past weekend, I and many of my colleagues received the shocking news that famed Obama administration DHS whistleblower Phil Haney had died. My first indication was a text from a friend late Friday night: "Sorry so late but I am hearing Phil Haney has been killed." I had received something earlier in the evening, but the person texting had thought it was a joke. It was no joke. Phil Haney, a long-term colleague and person I had come to know personally, had been shot dead. Rumors from friends contained many inaccuracies, like "he had been missing for days," "found in a remote area," etc.

Convicted former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich went on Fox News in his first post-release interview and held very little back about Barack Obama's involvement in the scandal that put him in prison, while the first black president was never held accountable. Appearing on "Watters' World" with Jesse Watters, Blagojevich was quickly asked about the 2008 Senate-seat-for-sale scandal, in which Blagojevich had negotiated appointing an Obama-approved candidate, in exchange for a cabinet position. “Did you ever talk to Barack Obama about this Senate seat? Did he have any knowledge about what was going on or not?” Watters asked. “President Obama began the whole conversation
