Whoa! GOP does not have 51 votes to dismiss?

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 1/14/2020 2:00:45 PM

How imbecilic are those Republicans trying to make a name for themselves by supporting the unconstitutional Schiff/Pelosi articles of impeachment? Beyond polite description. Susan Collins, Rob Portman, probably the self-serving Mitt Romney, are all trying to be the biggest monkey wrenches in an already ridiculous endeavor to remove President Trump from office. Each of them should just admit he is a Democrat at heart and switch parties. How else to explain their betrayal of their own party? Poor judgment is one thing, like Matt Gaetz voting for Pelosi's meaningless resolution to limit Trump's ability to counteract Iran. That was just dumb, a hopefully momentary lapse.

Comments:

I am sick into death of hearing from the traitorous Senate GOP "gang of 4!!" I intend to vote for Donald Trump in November, even if I have to write his name on the ballot!!

I guess the stupid RINOs just still don't get how MAD we are about the way they lie to us and sabotage the president. I've had it. Fed up doesn't begin to describe my attitude.

RINO/Establishment Republicans have been screwing up two-car funerals for over 80 years. The wisest political advice I ever was taught was by my high school history teacher, a Nixonian Democrat, in 1972. Never underestimate the stupidity of the national Republican Party. Rest in Peace, Mr. Shriver!

I am fed up, too. But no amount of squealing and/or vote-threatening will change these CDs (closet Dims). It will take something a bit more dramatic. And something sooner than Nov.

I sincerely hope there is a motion to dismiss and McConnell requires every Republican to vote on it so everyone knows exactly where all the Republicans stand.

On the bright side, if Collins, Romney, Murkowski or Portman vote against the president, they will follow Flake and his ilk out the door. Democrats could pick up a seat or two short term, but it will lead to a better Republican party over time. If the vote to support the president, it will leave the Democrats deflated and the Republican party unified as we enter the 2020 elections.

This has been pretty obvious for a while. You can absolutely count on Romney to stab the President in the back at every possible opportunity. Murkowski is just a lunatic, and much more of a Dem than a Republican, and the same is true of Collins, who clearly never wants to miss a chance to harm Trump. Could be even a few more, Lee might want to prove his ......insanity?

Said it all along. For impeachment to succeed requires Republican assistance. Watch the Republicans! We know where the Democrats stand. They are tyrants. We really don't know for sure where the Republicans stand. You want to trust the Republicans, but they persist in stabbing their constituents in the back. The Democrats are tyrants. The Republicans are backstabbers. Great choice. Not.

You'd have to be a complete idiot to not see this is exactly WHY Pelosi held on to those articles for so long! She was just waiting until she KNEW the votes were not there to dismiss. I am so royally pi$$ed off I feel like QE2. How the Republican Senators couldn't see this coming is beyond me. 6 weeks of trial and expect a zillion Ballsey-Ford types to come out of the woodwork. The Demos want nothing but character assassination right up to the election and the asinine Republicans have just enabled that.

If the Senate even accepts these un-Constitutional Articles of Impeachment, POTUS should simply refuse to leave the White House and demand Supreme Court intervention.

The impeachment is in the Senate. The fiasco has started. The RINOs will betray us as always, and they will be re-elected. The mess has started and will never end. You can forget about Lindsey Grahams chest thumping about this will be quickly dismissed. He will do nothing, as every time. Get ready to be disgusted and bored to death with the Senate over the next year, and it wallows in this mess.

Start setting up their primary opponents. Without a primary opponent, they usually get re-elected. That has to be a local grass-roots effort. It's not too late to put a chill up their back.

#16 is right. They'll never get 20 Republican Senators to convict. But I don't think that's the Demo's goal. Their goal is to DESTROY Trump, to demonize him endlessly so he can't possibly be reelected. Now that they have their toe in the door, they'll call an untold number of "just-stepped-forward-with-critical information" witnesses who will tell unending Ballsey-Ford tales right up to Election Day. And since most Americans can't sit back and watch a 6 week trial in it's entirety, they will have to rely on the 24/7 distorted media coverage, which is exactly what the Demos want. And don't be surprised if in the end Hillary steps in to save the day. Something's up. She's been wayyyy too quiet.

Any republican who supports the Schiff, Nadler , Pelosi fake impeachment should be voted out. It’s disgusting. It was a one sided secret coup & the republicans should dismiss based on the lack of evidence. The ole fake republicans like the Bushes, Romney, Collins, Lisa, Krystol, Will, Lee should step aside, this is Trumps real party.

The Pelosi Legacy: A Barking Dog with No Teeth 10 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 1/15/2020 4:52:05 PM Post Reply
Dogs don’t bark because they’re brave, they bark because they’re scared. The same can be said for the current House Speaker. Afraid of a revolt among the even more left wing of her party, afraid of a president her party looks increasingly unlikely to defeat in November, afraid of domestic and international American success via an approach that does not comport with her more liberal views and achieved without her consent, Speaker Pelosi has entered the twilight of her political career barking at all she fears. Enacting symbolic measures, absent any import, launching an impeachment, replete with hyperbole and hyper-gesticulation, yet devoid of any impeachable offense.

Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), a former Explosive Ordnance Disposal tech who lost both legs in Afghanistan, made quite the statement Tuesday when he used part of his time to sit in silence during a congressional hearing, demanding witnesses name a single fallen soldier that doesn’t justify killing Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani. At the beginning of his remarks, Mast likened the decision to kill Soleimani to taking out a machine gun nest. "I look at Soleimani as a terrorist machine gun nest, really. He’s been spraying rounds at the U.S. for many years on many different fronts," he said. "You want to ask is [an attack] imminent?

A sure sign that Tuesday was an overall good day was evident when creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested — again. A development that prompted Donald Trump Jr. to engage in a little schadenfreude. Avenatti was arrested by Internal Revenue Service agents Tuesday evening in Los Angeles, during a break in a State Bar Court disciplinary hearing over allegations the controversial attorney scammed a client out of $840,000, Fox News reported. When the hearing resumed, Avenatti was nowhere to be found. His attorneys called for a sidebar with the judge and said that their client would not be able to return due to circumstances related to a criminal matter in Orange County.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is under fire for a “deliberate” attempt to “upstage” President Trump as he signed “Phase One” of a long-awaited trade deal with China. Pelosi chose to announce the impeachment managers for Trump’s upcoming Senate trial at a press conference at the Capitol on Wednesday, just before the president signed the “historic” US-China trade deal at a ceremony with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He. [Video] Fox Business host Stuart Varney slammed Pelosi for what he says is her intentional attempt to distract from what Trump has touted as a “very large and comprehensive” deal following a nearly two-year-long trade war with China.

Unlike House Democrats, who used unfair rules to prevent their Republican colleagues from having any say in the chamber’s impeachment proceedings last year, Senate Republicans appear intent on ensuring their colleagues are granted a say. And so on Tuesday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz reportedly pitched the idea of “witness reciprocity,” an innovative solution that calls for each side being allowed to call an equal number of witnesses to testify in President Donald Trump’s upcoming trial. If Senate Democrats were to choose to call former Trump administration National Security Adviser John Bolton, for instance, Republicans would, in turn, be allowed to call, say, former Vice President Joe Biden or his son Hunter.

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) is playing hardball with the Democrats — and with his fellow Republicans — over the sham impeachment.

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that two House chairmen who led President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry will be among the House prosecutors for Trump's Senate trial. They are Democrats Rep. Adam Schiff, chair of the Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Jerry Nadler, chair of the Judiciary Committee. Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House last month on charges of abuse of power over his pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden as Trump withheld aid from the country. He was also charged with obstructing Congress’ ensuing probe.
