  • For the Record: Democrats Called For Last 4 GOP Presidents To be Impeached

    05/21/2017 9:58:46 AM PDT · by Mozilla · 14 replies
    While the lying mainstream makes it seem that Democrats are onto something with impeachment talk of President Trump, they fail to show that Democrats have called for the impeachment of GOP presidents in ‘81, ’83, ’84, ’91, ’04, ‘05, and ‘07.Investors Business Daily reported: The fact that some Democrats are already calling for the impeachment of President Trump is hardly news. What is news is the fact that even some ardent liberals are worried that reflexively jumping on the impeachment bandwagon is folly. According to a list compiled by CNN, 27 Democrats have so far come out in favor of...

    It came as a thunderclap. A college friend, a fair-minded liberal, did the unthinkable: He walked away from the Democratic Party, publicly declaring his disgust on social media. The election of Larry Krasner — the anti-cop defense lawyer — as the Democratic Party’s nominee for Philadelphia district attorney was the last straw. His post: “That did it. After 30 years of voting as a Democrat, I am no longer a member of that party ... The national Dems failed to clean house after admitting they fixed the presidential primary. And the local Dems just let George Soros buy the Philly...

    Saturday, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin predicted on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” that the Democrats will take control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections and then move to impeach President Donald Trump. Host Joy Reid asked, “I want to do a quick round robin and take your guys’ temperature on the likelihood of impeachment — impeachment with Republicans leading it, impeachment with Democrats leading it, or no impeachment at all.(snip)
  • Alan Dershowitz: I Don’t See Any Evidence of Collusion – Even if There Was, Not a Crime (VIDEO)

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/18/2017 | Jim Hoft
    Prominent American lawyer and author Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat, told Elizabeth MacDonald on FOX Business Network that he had seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump and Russia and even if there was evidence it wasn’t a crime. Alan Dershowitz: Well first of all I don’t see any evidence of collusion, and second even if there was major collusion, that’s not a crime. Even hypothetically if the administration or the candidate got together with the Russians and said, “Please help me become president. Do whatever you can to help me.” That wouldn’t be a crime… The most serious condemnations...

    Last week, the Washington Post created a 90-minute wonder with a scoop: leaked audio from a meeting of House Republicans supposedly contained an admission from Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy that Vladimir Putin had paid off Donald Trump. It became painfully obvious that McCarthy and several Republicans were joking during this exchange, but at least for a brief period of time, it was hot news. It did leave another question, though — who was the leaker? Hugh Hewitt asked Paul Ryan about the whodunit this morning, and whether he believed the rumor that former Capitol Hill staffer-turned-presidential candidate Evan McMullin engineered...

    Republicans, in particular the Trump administration, are approaching a historic decision that will shape America for generations to come. The endless hostility of the Left, exemplified by violent fascists on college campuses, thugs in the streets, determined disrupters at town hall meetings, and the dishonest elite media are all part of their efforts to defeat the reforms and changes that President Trump was elected to implement.

    WISCONSIN DELLS — Wisconsin Republicans repeatedly praised President Donald Trump at their state convention Saturday, a stark contrast to last year when his name was rarely mentioned amid turmoil over his pending nomination. Republicans also focused their attention on helping Gov. Scott Walker and Attorney General Brad Schimel win re-election next year and defeating Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin. The annual GOP convention brought together hundreds of party insiders, activists and officeholders for speeches, awards and socializing....

    Left-wing academic Noam Chomsky has declared that the Republican Party is the “most dangerous organization in human history” for their stance on climate change. Chomsky, still considered to be a darling of the left, told the BBC that, unlike ISIS or North Korea, the Republican Party is “dedicated to destroying the prospects for organized human existence.” Asked whether Donald Trump would damage America, Chomsky argued that the “main damage he will do is to the world, and it’s already happening.” “The most significant aspect of the Trump election, and it’s not just Trump, it’s the whole Republican party, is their...

    PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - A crowd of people lined both sides of Camelback Road Wednesday evening, protesting outside the offices of Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake. "I don't regularly come to protests, but I hope they pay attention and hear us," Martha McCoy of Mesa said. President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey prompted the protest. "Somebody needs to stand up. If enough people protest, maybe something will be done about this," Larry Brusuelas said. He and the others held signs, demanding an independent prosecutor be appointed to look into possible ties between members of the...

    Congressional Republicans were shaken by the news that FBI Director James Comey was fired, as many of them sided with their Democratic colleagues in questioning the decision. “While the President has the legal authority to remove the Director of the FBI, I am disappointed in the President’s decision to remove James Comey from office,” Sen. John McCain said in a statement, repeating his call for an special congressional committee to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr said he was “troubled by the timing and reasoning” of Trump’s decision, defending Comey on Twitter...

    The National Republican Congressional Committee sent out a fundraising email Wednesday using the potential impeachment of President Donald Trump as motivation to encourage people to donate to the party. According to Politico, the NRCC email read as follows: "BREAKING. House Democrats call for President Trump's impeachment. We MUST protect our president. DEFEND THE PRESIDENT. "Fellow Conservative — Democrats want President Trump impeached — including the DNC Deputy Chair! If Democrats win the House their #1 priority would be to impeach our president. We must protect the House at ALL costs, Fellow Conservative." The email then asked for donations before saying...

    When did the word “optics” enter the political lexicon? In any case, the Morning Joe crew today ripped the look of the Republican Rose Garden ceremony of yesterday at which President Trump and House members celebrated the passage of their health care bill. Donny Deutsch said they were “a bunch of fat, middle-aged, rich white guys.” When Willie Geist mentioned that Mika had said that the photo looked like a golf course ribbon cutting, Joe Scarborough interjected: “it’s a country club with restrictive membership. Obviously, you have to be white, and a male, to be there.” View the video here.
  • Dems Taunt Republicans with ‘Na Na Na Na’ Chant After Passage of Revised American Health Care Act

    Big Government (Breitbart) ^ | May 4, 2017 | Sean Moran
    Democrats taunted House Republicans with a “Na Na Na Na” chant after the latter passed the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA). The “Goodbye” in the chant was to be taken as a warning that passing an Obamacare repeal package will force the Republicans to lose their majority in the House. House Republicans narrowly passed their revised American Health Care Act after moderate Republicans fretted about how well the bill will protect patients with pre-existing conditions.

    By making rape-related medical treatment a preexisting condition, you have become an ally of rapists. It is hard being the victim of a sex crime, and you just made it harder by voting for a healthcare bill that includes an amendment making the medical treatment of rape a preexisting condition. You’ve provided one more obstacle for women who want to bring their perpetrators to justice. This latest impediment to reporting is not only unfair, it will make our communities less safe.
  • House Republicans claim a major victory with passage of health-care overhaul

    Washington Post ^ | May 4, 2017 | Ed O'Keefe, Paige Winfield Cunningham and Amy Goldstein
    House Republicans on Thursday narrowly passed a controversial bill to overhaul the nation’s health-care system, claiming a major victory even as the measure faces an uncertain fate in the closely divided U.S. Senate. Under intense pressure to show they can govern and to make good on their promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Republicans pushed through the bill after adopting a last-minute change that earned it just enough votes to pass. However, the House version fell significantly short of the GOP’s long-held goals, making major dents in large portions of the current law but not outright repealing...

    House Republicans will vote on an amendment to eliminate the exemption for Congress and their staff members from changes to Obamacare. The amendment, H.R. 2192, would eliminate an exemption for changes to Obamacare regulations that impact health insurance premiums and coverage. The proposed amendment would allow states to obtain waivers to repeal Obamacare regulations such as essential health benefits and community ratings. Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ) sponsored H.R. 2192, which has 83 cosponsors—all of them Republican. House Republicans look to attach the amendment to the American Health Care Act as part of their Obamacare repeal package. Obamacare required that Congressmen...

    We may witness the final unraveling of the social contract in America Having won the White House, the House and the Senate, the victorious Republicans have handed the Democrats the budget process. In doing so they have surrendered everything they were supposedly fighting for: no wall, no end to Obamacare, no end to sanctuary cities, and no end to funding for Planned Parenthood. The Democrat leaders are celebrating their victory after losing election after election. Those of us who voted Republican, who voted to get our country back, are mourning a loss after winning election after election. This does not...

    The People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) Sunshine State Battleground Poll finds President Donald J. Trump’s approval rating in Florida far above his national numbers. The President is above water in his adopted state, 52% to 45%. Unlike other oft-cited surveys, PPD Battleground State Polls pegged President Trump’s victories on the statewide level in all but two states we identified as battlegrounds within tens of percentage points, including Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Our final PPD Sunshine State Battleground Poll released on Nov. 6 found him leading Hillary Clinton by 1.6%, rounded up to two points. He won by 1.2%....

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A pair of moderate Republicans who'd been holdouts against the GOP health care bill said Wednesday they were now backing the high-profile legislation after winning President Donald Trump's support for their proposal for reviving the languishing measure. The conversions of Reps. Fred Upton, R-Mich., and Billy Long, R-Mo., could breathe new life into the sagging Republican push to deliver their long-standing promise repeal former President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. Upton and others said they believed the House could pass the legislation Thursday....
