'Trump is powerless': House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi is doing to the president what no one
else has in the 3 years since he took office

Original Article

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is doing to President Donald Trump what no one else has in the nearly three years since he took office: She's making him squirm. In the wake of an impeachment inquiry and with a looming trial in the Senate, the president has become increasingly frustrated by Pelosi's unprecedented decision to withhold the two articles of impeachment against him from the upper chamber until Majority Leader Mitch McConnell guarantees a fair and impartial trial. Pelosi's refusal to transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate has robbed the president of what he wants most: "total and complete exoneration" following a trial.

I don’t believe for one millisecond that Trump is “squirming.” I’m sure he wants this ridiculous charade over with so the congress can get on with business. The Dems are the obstructionists here.

No, Nancy. The entire country is seeing the House for what it has become under your leadership or lack thereof. What a biased dog and pony show with hearsay and people who hate the President testifying as experts.

Pelosi is a formidable politician but her own son, like Hunter, is implicated in the Ukrainian oil business. Her own district is covered in human feces that oozes into the San Francisco Bay. So she has weaknesses too. On our side, Trump has brass stones and they weigh one ton each.

Sounds like author is a bitter female former CNBC progressive hack, with more fake anonymous quotes... However, Pelosi must go ASAP; she is the one ‘squirming.’ She is trying to change and devalue our Constitution and has been caught in the act. KAG

I have yet to see Trump afraid of anything, and certainly not a shriveled up old bobblehead who walks like her proctologist missed a corn cob. Payback time will be delicious.

Another article by a delusional person trying to put a positive light on a political hit job gone wrong. Trump has every right to be royally POed because he upset the political establishment apple cart by beating Clinton. With their baseless accusations of alleged collusion to quid pro quo it's Trump has been in the Democrats heads since he defeated Hillary Clinton. While their obstructionist agenda to thwart anything that Trump has tried to put forward from trade to the ongoing emergency situation at the Mexican border plays well in D.C. and in the MSM, they have ignored the people who are supposedly running the Government, the American people. Pelosi is the one who is squirming because she is only along for the ride. The Socialist "Progressives" have hijacked the Democrat Caucus in the House and are pushing for the nullification of the 2016 election. She's in a no-win situation and she knows it.

My view of old school New Yorker President Trump is that he's in his corner chomping at the bit to get at the dems, but he is restraining himself because of what he knows is coming. There's one thing we all know about PDT--he don't squirm for nobody. Double negative, I know; it just freaking sounds better that way.

We have had a non-stop "analysis" of Trump being in chaos, confusion, and panic since he was sworn in. NONE of it was true. The media is still beclowning itself. There is no need for Trump to squirm. His eventual acquittal is certain. Meanwhile, it is all just publicity and Trump is everyone's master in that arena. Every petulant step Pelousy takes diminishes her and makes her whole premise of impeachment look more absurd and partisan.

The impeachment that didn't happen is preferable to an impeachment with acquittal. It hasn't happened in most minds...she's still debating whether to proceed. Smile Donald...I think they're squirming. We'll soon hear constituents sentiment stories upon return to DC. Even rank & file Ds can see the idiocy on open display and the potential damage to party.

The author believes that Trump is guilty as charged. The author believes that Trump knows he’s guilty and that is why he’s “squirming”. These lefties are trying so hard to believe that everything Trump is evil and are doing their best to get him removed. The fact is that they have nothing, and if the Pelosi, Jr. story gets legs, then we’ll see how crafty Mama Pelosi is. That will be bigger than tuna fish in Samoa and pineapples in Hawaii.

Honey, he’s not squirming, he’s waiting for justice to be served out by Barr and Durham. Patience is a virtue. He knows more than you could imagine about the dirty dealings of these seditious democrats. What you see is the democrats desperately flailing around because they know what is coming. Nasty Nancy doesn’t have two brain cells to rub together and she is not going to best this President. Sure, she makes noise but it will mean nothing when her party is revealed to be the party of sedition. Clam down sweetheart, go to a safe space. It will all be over soon.

What a load of cow pies and meadow muffins this is. With the news coming out now about Pelosi and her son's involvement in Ukraine, it is Pelosi who is doing the squirming, not Trump. She is trying to bully the Senate into giving her a say in any upcoming trial, and she is not going to get her way. She better not, if Turtle knows what is good for him. She won't be happy unless the republican run senate does a soviet style trial like they ran their own hearings.

The President is HARDLY powerless. The single thing that is out of his control, at this point, is his inability to make Pelosi send the articles of impeachment to the Senate. I am sure theAdministration is working to correct this defect. Trump, himself, should say nothing about it and just perform his daily tasks. He should never let the opposition control the game.

Graham accused Pelosi of playing political games and trying to exert control over the Senate trial by keeping it from starting. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., recognized Friday on the Senate floor the chamber's rules prevented him from doing anything until Pelosi does her part, but Graham proposed a solution that could remove what McConnell has called an "impasse" in the process.

If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 percent to 37 percent.

I’ve spoken to each of them,” Biden told the Dallas Morning News. “My plea to both of them is that they stay engaged. They are talented, talented people.” O’Rourke made headlines during the 2018 congressional elections when the former Texas congressman nearly ousted conservative Senator Ted Cruz in the deep-red state. He garnered early attention after launching his presidential bid but suspended his campaign in November

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday responded to reporters asking questions about the impeachment witnesses after she signed the articles of impeachment. For Pelosi and the Democrat-media complex it’s not about proof of any crimes committed by Trump, it’s about smearing him with bogus allegations. “It’s not a question of proof, it says what allegations have been made and that has to be subjected to scrutiny as to how we go forward, but it should not be ignored in the context of other events that could substantiate some of that,” said Pelosi.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D. Somalia) exploded on the national political scene in 2018, when she ran for and won a seat in the House of Representatives. Born in Somalia, she and her family had escaped that war-torn country when she was a small child and spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya. Omar came to America in 1992, when she was 10. Omar was a perfect candidate to take over the seat that Keith Ellison vacated when he moved on to become Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee. As was Ellison, Omar is a Muslim representing Minnesota’s 5th congressional district

This is some news that should absolutely terrify Democrats. They know they need Wisconsin and other rust belt states to beat Trump in 2020 but the crowd at Trump’s recent rally there proves winning the state is going to be extremely difficult for them. More than half of the people at Trump’s rally were not even Republicans. Red State reports: Mind-Blowing! 58% Of Attendees at Trump’s Wisconsin Rally Were NOT Republicans, Up from 43% in Ohio Several days ago, Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale posted statistics from last week’s rally held in Toledo, OH, which showed that 43% of attendees identified as either Democratic or Independent. I called that figure “stunning” in a recent post.

House Democrat leaders pursuing the removal of President Donald Trump from office appear reluctant to let go of their investigation after voting to impeach him last month, even after Speaker Nancy Pelosi transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate this week. “Plainly, there are loose ends here that the House should have tied up and that, importantly, the House is continuing to investigate,” former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Andrew McCarthy wrote in an editorial Wednesday, the day House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) finally handed over the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

James Carville says Trump is the greatest threat to America since the fall of communism. It is easy to laugh away such a declaration, but I think there is an invaluable truth expressed. Trump is as important in stature as the United States' most formidable military and political opponent of the twentieth century. Trumpism as an ideological force has the mass and acceleration of a Soviet Empire that threatened to conquer the world. Nobody speaks about the Bush Doctrine in such terms. Nobody confuses the Obama Doctrine or the Carter Doctrine as projecting that kind of power.

He put the fat in fatwa. A morbidly obese ISIS fanatic dubbed “Jabba the Jihadi” has been captured by Iraqi forces — who loaded him onto a flatbed truck because he couldn’t fit in a police car. The 560-pound mufti Abu Abdul Bari, also known as Shifa al-Nima, was nabbed Thursday by an elite SWAT team of the Nineveh regiment in the city of Mosul, according to Stars and Stripes. The jumbo jihadist was known for “provocative speeches against the security forces” and is considered one of the top leaders of “ISIS gangs,” Iraqi security officials said in a statement. Bari issued religious decrees — or fatwas —

Bernie Sanders supporters in Iowa are warning that a lack of enthusiasm for Joe Biden could bring the same result the nomination of another milquetoast Democrat did four years ago: electing Donald Trump. Sanders backers fret the socialist Vermont senator, 78, is being consistently ignored and underestimated by Beltway insiders and a Washington-based press corps. The same bunch, in their view, who failed to predict Trump's 2016 White House win and were sure Hillary Clinton, who beat Sanders for the Democratic nomination, would easily prevail. They're particularly steamed Sanders, a socialist who has been in Congress since 1991, isn't getting his due though
