Why Democrats Lose – ‘Keith Ellison Powerfully Argues For Trump Impeachment At Democratic Leadership Debate’


Rep Bob Goodlatte - he seems nice.....

Rep Bob Goodlatte – he seems nice…..

Hey Keith? Do you know how to impeach the President?


The House Judiciary Committee is chaired by Rep Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) Ya starting to get a clue yet Keith?

Maybe this will help.

‘Goodlatte Praises House Passage of Bill to Permanently Prohibit Federal Funds for Abortions.’

Well how aboiut this Keith…..

‘Chairman Goodlatte Introduces Balanced Budget Amendments to the Constitution of the United States’.

What possibly makes you think that an ultra conservative like Goodlatte would under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES – even think about impeaching a warm body that will sign everything the Republicans put in front of him?

This is why Democrats lose. Leaders exciting the base to chase windmills.

In the House of Representatives
**’The House Judiciary Committee decides whether or not to proceed with impeachment. If they do…’

‘The Chairman of the Judiciary Committee will propose a Resolution calling for the Judiciary Committee to begin a formal inquiry into the issue of impeachment’.

‘Based on their inquiry, the Judiciary Committee will send another Resolution to the full House stating that impeachment is warranted and why (the Articles of Impeachment), or that impeachment is not called for’.

‘The Full House (probably operating under special floor rules set by the House Rules Committee) will debate and vote on each Article of Impeachment’.

‘Should any one of the Articles of Impeachment be approved by a simple majority vote, the President will be “impeached.”

Rep. Ellison :

“I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things that legitimately raise the question of impeachment. On day one he was in violation of the Emoluments Clause. This is a part of the Constitution that says a president can’t take payments from a foreign power. The day people checked into his hotel and started paying him, who were foreign dignitaries, he was in violation of that law’.

Keith, in politics – when you have to explain – you are losing.

The Resignation Of Donald J. Trump


I have seen a little in my life time.

A President assassinated…..

A President resigned in disgrace……

A President with early onset dementia….

And a President Impeached by the House but over ruled by the Senate.

And now, the election of a con artist.

Will Donald Trump resign? Yes but it will take some time. The Republicans will have to be taken by the hand since they control the House and the Senate and have an ignorant man sitting in the White House who will sign whatever they put in front of him.

Donald Trump will lie. He has a long, long, very long documented, recorded history of lying.

So Republicans will have to force the one document – Trump’s tax returns – out of his control and bring it into the light of transparency.

This will show Trump’s long, long, very long history with Russian financial institutions.

And Trump will have no choice but to resign.


The upside.

We get rid of the con artist.

I admit I am biased. I want to see Trump and his entire family humiliated, financially crushed. Even to the point where the Dollar Store won’t sell an item with the Trump brand.

Why? Trump spent 8 years degrading President Obama and his family as not being ‘real;’ Americans. Over and over and over, Trump pounded the meme into the American minds that Obama was not born in America.


The down side.

Mike Pence will become President. Pence describes himself thusly – ‘A christian, a conservative and a republian….in that order.


The upside.

Except for a small sect of religious bible thumpers, no one especially Republicans will have the stomach to be preached at by Pence who ran as Trump’s running mate.


The down side.

America will be in turmoil for several years.


The upside.

Democrats can take back the Senate in 2018, the House and White House and regain the majority of State Houses in 2020.

Republicans have to be the ones to expose Trump.

Democrats have to be the voice of calm and reason.

No bible thumping. No Progressive platforms.

Calm, moderate voices.

Blog Runnning – Why Democrats Lose – ‘Without a path from protest to power, the Women’s March will end up like Occupy’




Do you remember Occupy?

From The Guardian :

“Shortly after Donald Trump’s shock election victory, I received an urgent call from one of the co-creators of the Women’s March on Washington”.

“She was concerned at a moment you might expect her to be ecstatic. Hundreds of thousands of women in 17 countries had already signed on in solidarity, and the numbers kept growing”.

“Yet despite the tremendous momentum, she confessed a nagging skepticism about the effectiveness of the protest”.

“I’m not that interested in the march itself but in what comes afterwards,” Fontaine Pearson confided to me”.

“I admire her candor because I know it takes courage to voice such a concern. It is her difficult question – what comes the day after? – that every supporter of the Women’s March should be earnestly figuring out today”.

“Without a clear path from march to power, the protest is destined to be an ineffective feelgood spectacle adorned with pink pussy hats”.

“It is exciting when a protest meme leaps from social networks to the streets, capturing the imagination of millions, prompting this very website to proclaim that the forthcoming protest could be among the biggest in American history and Vogue to commission glitzy photos of the core organizers dressed up like Eileen Fisher models”.

“But it is all too easy to succumb to the false hope that a big splash is a transformative tsunami”.
