Invoking Scripture to make his case for the abolition of slavery, Abraham Lincoln famously declared that “a House divided against itself cannot stand.” These words still ring true today as Speaker Nancy Pelosi fans the flames of partisanship with an illegitimate impeachment crusade against President Trump.
Not a single Republican voted for the Democrats’ two flimsy articles of impeachment that the Democrats rammed through the House of Representatives after a one-sided “inquiry” — but three members of Pelosi’s caucus could not bring themselves to go along with the farce, and a fourth voted against one of the articles. One Democrat, New Jersey Representative Jeff Van Drew, even switched his allegiance to the Party of Lincoln because of Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment sham.
Democrat voters nationwide are coming to the same realization as Van Drew. President Trump and this Republican Party welcome them with open arms. In the words of Ronald Reagan, another longtime Democrat who eventually joined the GOP, these voters won’t really be leaving the Democrat Party, because the Democrat Party has already left them.
The Founders intended impeachment as a drastic remedy — so drastic that they made sure a president could only be removed from office by an overwhelming majority of the Senate. Pursued responsibly, impeachment could even serve as a unifying force, bringing ideological opponents together for the sake of protecting both Constitution and country. When it is pursued irresponsibly, however, impeachment is not only needlessly divisive but also represents a serious threat to the constitutional order in and of itself.
A partisan impeachment is a tyranny of the majority, something the Founders took great pains to defend against when they devised our system of government. Lincoln was keenly aware of the dangers of polarization as he watched the country settle into a political stalemate that would ultimately to the most divisive time in our history.
While Nancy Pelosi managed to divide her own Party — and much of the country — her obsession with nullifying the result of the 2016 presidential election is uniting and energizing Republicans.
Within just 48 hours after the Democrats voted to impeach, the Trump campaign raised over $10,000,000 in online donations. Even more impressively, more than 200,000 patriotic Americans have signed up to get involved with the President’s re-election campaign since Speaker Pelosi first announced the impeachment inquisition in September.
If you travel outside of the Washington, D.C. Beltway, the burgeoning energy and unity of Republicans are ever increasing. The best place to witness this growth is at a Trump rally. At the very moment that Democrats were preparing to vote for impeachment, President Trump was addressing tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters — 17 percent of whom were registered Democrats — at a Keep America Great rally in Battle Creek, Michigan. Last month, at the height of impeachment hysteria, more than 30,000 people gathered in Sunrise, Florida to join President Trump for a rally — and that was on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving!
As for the new volunteers, I’ve traveled across the country over the past few months to join them in trainings as part of the RNC and the Trump Campaign recruitment initiatives. The American people aren’t standing idly by while politicians try to take down our President. More and more Americans understand it’s time to get in the game.
This partisan Democrat impeachment crusade has sparked a call to action for Republicans. Republicans are coming to the defense of our president, our country and our institutions. The Party of Lincoln will once again unite our Republic by rejecting Pelosi’s attempt to divide the House.

It is time to recognize a Democrat Party as a criminal organization and put Democrats on trial as mobsters they are.
Singapore solution. Just put them on a plane to Venezuela and warn them if they ever even try to come back the will be summarily executed on the spot. And hand them a copy of Man with out a COuntry on the way out.
Brennan would make some great Lt.Nolan though.
I believe the shock of the 2016 election will be exceeded by the shock of results of the 2020 election. However, it will not be a surprise as 2016 was. Rather the shock will be the level of landslide. The polls are beginning to show it as well as the enthusiasm at Trump’s rallies.
It’s one thing to rig a poll in one candidate’s favor when they are relatively even. It’s much more difficult when one candidate (Trump) is head and shoulders ahead. As summer goes on, more and more minorities will join the Trump Train. And many diehard democrats will be disillusioned and stay home on election day.
I believe that the number of Democrats who just stay home will be fewer than those who go out and vote for the socialist candidate.
And I am fairly certain that there will be one.
I am active duty military, so I have not been legally allowed to do much in the way of volunteering for campaigns. But I am retiring. I am looking forward to joining President Trump's campaign in a few months.
Pelosi is doing what she does best - dividing the country. She is perfectly content to have half of the country believing that Trump is impeached and half of the country denying it...
Is this the vice-president’s brother?
Sounds like a really smart guy.
I would be surprised if he is not in jail by the end of next year. He is Avenatti’s twin brother, with the same morality, and probably has dipped into a few illegalities along the way..just speculating. Hard to miss those spots on a leopard.
Pelosi did a very unconvincing act of being somber and telling us it was a dark and troubling time in our history. Yes, because she decided to do something dark and troubling.
And turn your eyes to Virginia where the Dems are uniting the right. Let me see, piss off a group of people with threats of gun confiscation. They become engaged and organized WITH GUNS. Real smart you stupid lefties!
A lot of Democrats (primarily white ones, but some minorities) voted for Trump in 2016, and the Dem establishment has spent 3 years trying to prevent a recurrence of that (apparently unsuccessfully). 2016 was about large-scale disillusionment in both parties (first with Trump’s victory in the primary process, then in the general election); I believe it will still play a key role in 2020 (helping Trump).
Too many people from both parties believe he represents their interests better than the dopes leading the two major parties.
No, that’s Rep. Greg Pence.
No, he is the nephew of Mike Pence.
I am so proud of the grassroots rebellion in Virginia, where I lived for about 15 rather happy and productive years.
Even more gratifying is the fact that opposition to Northam’s gun grabbing has materialized so quickly.
Who are you talking about?
Thanks a lot
“The Party of Lincoln Is Uniting as Pelosis House Is Dividing”.
Don’t be fooled by all the talk of a Trump landslide. The next election will be close, especially since we know the RAT party feels entitled to CHEAT THEIR AZZES OFF.
