Title: REEE: [US Only] Impeachment Vote
Post by: TECSHARE on July 23, 2019, 09:25:51 PM
Since bluefirecorp_ can't engage in an actual debate without being able silence ideas he disagrees with, I thought I would post my replies to comments here as he deleted them. Perhaps people can engage in an actual debate this way, and not just have some childish club where leftists stand around and reassure each other of their correctitude, normalizing increasingly erratic behavior. OP (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5166993.0)

I am sure you would prefer the whole internet be sanitized from ideas you dislike like they do on Facebook and Twitter, but most of us don't...

Plus people feel as if you're pulling away a democratically elected person because you don't like him -- which is BS as well.

Mueller's testimony is tomorrow. We'll see if that changes a few views. Overall, it's pretty obvious that he colluded with a foreign hostile entity to boost his election numbers. If you cheat to win, you shouldn't be rewarded with a victory.

You are going to be sorely upset by the results. Please do report back tomorrow on your thoughts. I can't wait.

Nah, I just like keeping my threads free of shitposts.

When you don't contribute anything to the thread, it gets removed. Try making some contribution to the conversation instead of just flinging shit next time.

Even though you *love* flinging shit, I'm tired of bothering moderators to take action against it.

Maybe this will help you:

I know you think repeating things I have posted to you in the past makes you look smart, frankly it is flattering, but it is also kind of sad. In order for you to sound smart repeating things back to me I have said to you, you might want to actually bother to understand them first. You will notice my reply is not even an attempt at a retort but predicting your reaction to a future event. Because of this, you will notice your whole linking of "The Hierarchy of Disagreement", while quite visually impressive, is totally irrelevant to my statement. You enjoy pretending to be smart if it makes you that happy. Who am I to get in your way?

Everyone else: I encourage you to continue the discussion here free of censorship.

Yeah. This guy fails to understand that impeachment isn't popular at all, and the new Mueller hearing showed no change from what the Mueller report offered to people. You know what that means? It means that impeachment charges won't come up again and President Trump won't be impeached.

SIMPLE.

I watched some of the testimony this morning and it's pretty much the usual political bullshit. No new information was heard, and all that was said throughout the whole thing was "as written in the report" and "can't comment on that". I'm tired of this "we are being open to the public" argument, followed by increasingly vague and equally confusing information. None of the new information has helped anyone, all it does is provide grounds for speculation and general confusion. I feel like a lot of this is on purpose, but who knows at this point with all the crazy stuff that's been happening.

This is why leftists can't be trusted in positions of power. Any time there is a problem, something wrong, or something that goes against their narrative they use censorship to make sure it is not discussed while they work on manufacturing a new distraction to draw attention away from their logical failures.

Although the case at hand involves ideological leftists, the problem extents to various other statists, fascists, communists and further.

By the way it's not exactly a logical failure, but a refusal to use the tools of logic. That's inescapable when you were told what to think and just repeat and believe it. It's a belief system. Others tell the leftist what he should think and feel, what he should hate and be outraged at, and he is trained to feel hate and outrage. As a good puppet.

It's a rare person that can scale from the bottom to the top and back down of a belief system with logic, and think nothing of it.

The splashy pictures are just yet another attempt to obfuscate the logic and lack of. To make the arguments more substantive and understandable, those should just be deleted.

I believe that we will see the best and the worst in these leftists, as they react to the debacle of the Mueller report, the Mueller hearing, the Kavanaugh circus, and their other total wastes of time of the people of the USA. The best, in some few, and the worst, in many of them. The worst includes silence and following the leader, as well as the arrogant attitude displayed by some.

In order for him to have obstructed justice, the original crime would have to have been valid to begin with, which it was not. The FISA warrant was based on manufactured evidence, the investigation was based on the FISA warrant, and the obstruction of justice charges were based on the resulting investigation. This was a fraud from start to finish.

No, you don't get it.

It's not whether he obstructed justice.

It's whether he obstructed.

Hey man, you're not very familiar with the Clinton case. Anyway, Trump also perjuried himself and covered up the evidence. It's pretty clear case of obstruction.

The best part of the whole thing is Mueller openly admitted Trump could be charged with obstruction if he wasn't president.

Of course, you don't care about evidence. You just like your conspiracies ;)

I am familiar with the Clinton case. Clinton got himself for trouble because of PERJURY (https://www.reference.com/history/were-charges-behind-bill-clinton-s-impeachment-700df210dc3618e5), upon which the obstruction of justice charges were based. The underlying crime in this case is perjury. What is the underlying crime in the case of Trump? Please do tell I have been waiting three years to hear evidence of this one.


...Mueller openly admitted Trump could be charged with obstruction if he wasn't president.
...

"could be charged" does not mean "evidence exists of a crime."

It does not mean "a grand jury would likely indict..."

It does not mean "should be charged..."

It means that the legal requirements exist to legally charge a person. For example, if the person was 6 years of age, he could not be charged. You get the point, maybe you don't like it, but there it is.

If anything exists criminally at all (zero evidence presented), it is a process crime which hinges upon there being a crime to obstruct to begin with. It would be similar to the police making up a fake story to search your car and later having the reason for the search proven not legitimate. Any evidence created as a result of the "fruit of the poison tree" would be invalid. A closer example would be getting charged with resisting arrest. Cops used to like to do this a lot where they couldn't find another crime they would just charge you with resisting arrest but never explain why they had to arrest you to begin with. There needs to be some kind of evidence for the basis of the investigation to begin with.

The best part is actually this: https://youtu.be/iiT1uzlcvUE when he corrected himself and said they did not reach a conclusion whether the president commited a crime or not.

Yep. Anyone who knows how the laws works knows the government never "exonerates" or proves people innocent. That is not how it works. It has nothing to do with being able to charge him as president. It is just a carefully crafted semantic word salad to give dumb people the impression he is guilty of a crime while also technically saying there is no evidence of a crime. The law is "innocent until proven guilty" not "guilty until Muller exonerates you".

I have to admit to being surprised that the Mueller document DID NOT purport crimes and recommend charges or impeachment be brought against Trump. It seems to be a fair piece of work such as would be typical in a DA's office. Is it possible there were half way reasonable liberals on that all Demo team?

Avoid mentioning or even saying anything bad about the existing power structure, string up a couple underlings, and move on.

So your implication is Trump is having people murdered in order to distract from an impeachment that not only will never happen, but if was attempted would largely be a positive thing for him considering how much it would expose the Democrat party as obstructionist, borderline traitorous, delusional useful idiots?

When you think liberals cant get any more crazy, boom, you find bluefirecorp, trump is hiring hitmen to murder people in order to distract them from impeachement, LOL, now thats some crazy shit.

A pattern of what? There are always a ton of mass and school shootings in the US, nothing really surprising. If you believe somehow these shootings are on purpose to make people "forget" about the non-existent possibility of impeachement after mueller report fiasco, then you have some serious mental problems.

Uhh, living here, but because trolls posted charts comparing apples to oranges... I'm here to post the real charts...comparing US death rates since 2013-present.

Pulled numbers from: https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/12/mass-shootings-mother-jones-full-data/3/

(feel free to disprove a shooting).

We can see a sharp increase in incidents post-2016 (2017 was scary). 2018 is still pretty bad with 4x the killings as 2014. This year still has a few months left and we're already worse than 2014.

(Also, my math is wrong in year 2013. Feel free to add up the totals yourself.. cause I'm not doing *all* the work for you; just see if you read before you even post ;))

As usual, the goal posts are always moving with you. First its the most mass shooters, then when I point out the per-capita breakdown the USA is not first on the list, now you are rambling about fruit and changing the standard to something else. Should I break out the total numbers of firearm homicides per-capita by nation as well? You are playing a losing game relying on massaged statistics and selective omissions.

Super interesting events...

When I first saw the headline about initiating an impeachment inquiry, I thought that it was just something Pelosi did to appease the more extreme Dems and get a few positive headlines, but it'd go nowhere. "Impeachment inquiry" sounds like a vague non-thing. But when I watched her speech, I got the sense that she's actually serious about this. Taken on its own, Pelosi's speech was very good. It projected a message of, "we all need to come together to take care of this one bad apple president," which is what you need if you want the impeachment process to be positive for the Democrats. But this is only going to work if they're actually able to put enough of a smoking gun forward to get substantial cross-party support, and I certainly haven't seen enough to satisfy that requirement.

Pelosi is a smooth political operator, she has more deep state connections than just about anyone, and the whisleblower report came from "the intelligence community" (~= the deep state). Maybe she has more dirt on Trump than we know? It'd have to be far beyond what's already known in the Ukraine hubub, but I wouldn't put it past her.

Due to living in a bubble, maybe they actually think that this Ukraine thing is a big deal? A huge strategic error in that case, then. Everything I've seen makes me think that this is even less big than all of the Mueller stuff. The investigation will drag Biden through the mud while Teflon Don gets away mostly unscathed, and by Nov 2020 it'll just be another example of the "Democratic witch hunt which prevents anything from getting done".

Usually I think that this is not an accurate way of looking at things, but maybe this was actually 4D chess by Trump? Maybe he set up the Dems to freak out about this, and now he's slowly, painfully going to release info proving his innocence and making the Dems look like fools and Biden look like a crook. If he thinks that Biden's defeat = a Warren victory in the primary, then it may make electoral sense, even, since Warren will be the easiest person for Trump to defeat.

You are starting to get the idea, but you are underestimating what is about to happen here. Trump is about to immolate the Democrat party. What is coming is without precedent. A coup was attempted against the legitimately elected leader Trump, and the corruption about to be exposed is going to be the biggest political scandal in US history.

Hasn't he been doing this all this time? Remember, "I was wiretapped" and them all calling him a liar..

I hope all the truth comes out no matter what it is, but isn't Trump already the biggest political scandal of all time? I'm not sure I've heard of this amount of insanity in history..
the left are even batshit crazy in their agendas of basically every last thing they talk about in the debates.. They all are extremists in every policy..

I mean with proof and evidence resulting in prosecution and conviction, not just collective hysteria. He has been proving them wrong over and over again, but the media just keeps pushing the original false narrative to save their own asses because they are complicit. He has been slow walking this in order to build the evidence as well as let his opponents burn their own credibility in order to reduce the risk of unrest and riots.

If he had just come out with this info right away, many people would have believed the narrative that it was to cover up for his own crimes, potentially resulting in massive unrest and civil war. He gave them all the time in the world to bring evidence against him but they never had any. Essentially he as been easing the left  into the reality that they lost legitimately, then dropping the hammer on those responsible for this attempted coup.

Just remember all you anti-Trump jokers out there. Any time that the pressure gets too heavy for Trump to handle, all he has to do is formally take knowledge of the common law known to the people. Then the people will have to find some way he has hurt them. And when they take it to court against him and the rest of government, the chaos that ensues will dissolve the whole government.

I think this is probably Pelosi's (and the Dem party 'elders') way of ensuring Biden will not get the nomination. The whole story makes Biden look a lot worse than it makes Trump look.

There are too many dirty and probably illegal things the Obama administration did for there to be a reasonable chance for Biden to win the presidency. These are things that are secret, but as President, Trump likely can find out about, and possibly things that Biden was involved in. A presidential race between Trump and Biden would likely highlight this corruption, and could possibly hamper turnout on the democrat side, and raise turnout on the Republican side if someone previously engaging in this likely corruption is running for President. This could possibly mean Trump not only getting reelected, but Republicans having both majorities in the House and a filibuster proof majority in the Senate, if the dirt is bad enough.

The effect on the election, and all races will be less if the Dem's presidential candidate is not associated with the Obama administration corruption. 

All of this assumes all this is not Trump playing the Democrats, which may be the case. The White House apparently has evidence the Whistleblower is politically motivated in favor of a specific democratic presidential candidate and if this is true, it would throw cold water on this theory.

^^^ And the Dems are realizing that they will have to sit down and really think if they want to even exist in the future. We can expect that they will be coming up with a super-candidate, someone who is not well know, so that there isn't any time to find any dirt on him.

I dunno. Sounds pretty bad. Sounds like Trump is using his position of the presidency to ask another president to investigate his political rival. I'm not the only one who thinks this.

Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said (https://edition.cnn.com/politics/live-news/trump-impeachment-inquiry-09-25-2019/index.html):

Quote
The notes between the call between the president of the United States and the president of Ukraine as well as the legal opinion drafted by the Department of Justice in an effort to prevent the whistleblower complaint from coming to our committee. And I have to say that I'm shocked by both. The notes of the call reflect a conversation far more damning than I or many others had imagined. It is shocking at another level that the White House would release these notes and felt that somehow this would help the President's case or cause. Because what those notes reflect is a classic mafia-like shakedown of a foreign leader.

But as we all know, even when Trump loses, he wins. I don't think its enough to proceed with the impeachment, or if they do, he will probably be acquitted.

There was no quid pro quo. The Ukrainian foreign minister denies any pressure was applied. The levels of hypocrisy coming from people claiming abuse of investigations in order to smear political opponents after 3 years of Russia collusion hysteria is reaching the point that it can only be explained by mental breakdown. Though given your personal propensity for confirmation bias and reaching a conclusion you prefer then trying to craft a narrative around it, this viewpoint from you is not exactly unexpected.

Biden's career is over, and lots of very prominent dems are going down with him. The last 3 years have been nothing but a desperate last ditch attempt to escape their inevitable fate behind bars or dangling at the end of a rope.

I read the memo and it looks pretty straight honest business talk, several subjects, yes one is the Biden/prosecutor matter.

So if in my opinion the memo looks fine, let me ask this. How would someone like Trump ask ANYTHING of another president, such that it could not be accused that he was asking for help in "investigating a political rival?" The only way I can see is for him to stay quiet.

I don't need to quote from an article to make simple observations. Your narrative is that this has anything to do with wrong doing on Trump's part when this is nothing but a desperate attempt to draw attention away from the MASSIVE amounts of corruption Biden is about to be held accountable for. The end of your post is irrelevant because this story is about Biden's corruption no matter how much you wish it was about Trump.

It'll be another thing like the Mueller report: Democrats will claim that it proves that Trump is basically a dictator, while Republicans will say that Trump was only doing his job in pushing for the investigation of a credible case of corruption. (IMO the truth is somewhere in the middle here, but the truth doesn't matter in politics.) If no other facts appear making this a bigger deal, then I think that Trump will come out even cleaner from this than he did from the Mueller report, while Biden will be substantially hurt.

Trump would have to literally strangle a baby on live TV in order for him to be convicted of anything in the Senate. Even if he'd said in the transcript, "Biden is a political threat to me. If and only if you fabricate & publish official Ukrainian reports making him look bad, I promise to use my authority as president to give you military aid and provide other favors," he'd still probably be acquitted. (Though in that case it might end up being a political win for the Democrats.)

I think that this is bad timing on the fact of the Dems.

They had a real chance to do this, and support from their causus on the fact that Donald Trump has obstructed justice. As there had been multiple times throughout the Mueller investigation where the guy had obstructed (If I'm not mistaken, that's what the whole second half of the report was about?)

This -- in my mind -- is a nothing burger. Trump is saying that the clear conflict of interest between Biden being the point man on the Ukraine, and Bidens son working for a company that had been under scrutiny from Ukrainian officials - then this just dissapearing, is suspicious.

I don't agree with Trump bringing it up in a call. But it doesn't seem like anything had come out of that phone call anyway. Seems like Trump had been doing what Trump does, and spit-balling, with nothing coming out of it.

Both sides are wrong here. I just don't think this rises to an impeachable offense by the POTUS.

They could impeach him over real things, like:
 - Waging wars without a declaration from congress.
 - Supporting the Saudi genocide in Yemen.
 - Emoluments issues with Trump's hotels, etc.
 - Wiretapping and other executive overreach.

But they don't want to impeach him for this sort of stuff because Democratic presidents have done the same things (even emoluments), and furthermore they like having an all-powerful presidency which they can exploit when they get into power and use as a scapegoat when they're out of power. So instead of pushing a powerful impeachment case which the public could actually get behind like, "bombs made in the US are as we speak being used to blow up children, at Trump's order and without congressional approval," the Dems instead search for these little "gotcha!" things which are totally Trump-specific and meaningless in any wider context, and which nobody actually cares about.

One of the most harmful trends has been the centralization of power into the presidency. Donald Trump is the ultimate head of an organization with ~4 million employees, and congress has in the past and present basically given him free reign to do whatever he wants with this insane amount of power. I'd love it if outrage over Trump leads to removal of executive powers and more skepticism of the status quo, but so far I'm not seeing any effective move in this direction.

IMO there's some chance (not a high chance, but some) that the loser of the next election will attack the legitimacy of the election, which will result in some serious chaos not seen in our lifetimes. And this will just be ridiculous bickering over who the next emperor will be, rather than actually trying to fix the problem at its source by making the presidency less powerful or otherwise fixing things fundamentally.

Three years of politically motivated unending accusations and investigations over Russiagate resulting in nothing is no issue at all, but a single request for an investigation and this is grounds for impeachment is it? You are a steaming bowl of horse shit.

Exactly, you didn't give a fuck about these kind of politically motivated investigations, that is until they aligned with your values, then suddenly it is worth calling out demonstrating you don't actually hold this principle.

I agree with your point of view here (with one exception to follow), but that is why I phrased my question the way I did. Because the only thing that would have satisfied media-spin crazed Democrats would be for him to have not mentioned it at all.

But there is one more issue, which is that in that same breathe Trump said that he understood that the prosecutor who was fired was a good man, and that perhaps he was fired unfairly. I'm unable to exclude this from the analysis, and I agree with it. If the guy was fired because of pressure from the US former administration related to the VP's son's affairs, I would like to see him reinstated with full back pay.

This has been overlooked in the discussion, and yet the prosecutor does seem to be an innocent victim in these power plays.

They had a real chance to do this, and support from their causus on the fact that Donald Trump has obstructed justice.

They could impeach him over real things, like:
 - Waging wars without a declaration from congress.
 - Supporting the Saudi genocide in Yemen.
 - Emoluments issues with Trump's hotels, etc.
 - Wiretapping and other executive overreach.

But they don't want to impeach him for this sort of stuff because Democratic presidents have done the same things (even emoluments), and furthermore they like having an all-powerful presidency which they can exploit when they get into power and use as a scapegoat when they're out of power. So instead of pushing a powerful impeachment case which the public could actually get behind like, "bombs made in the US are as we speak being used to blow up children, at Trump's order and without congressional approval," the Dems instead search for these little "gotcha!" things which are totally Trump-specific and meaningless in any wider context, and which nobody actually cares about.

One of the most harmful trends has been the centralization of power into the presidency. Donald Trump is the ultimate head of an organization with ~4 million employees, and congress has in the past and present basically given him free reign to do whatever he wants with this insane amount of power. I'd love it if outrage over Trump leads to removal of executive powers and more skepticism of the status quo, but so far I'm not seeing any effective move in this direction.

IMO there's some chance (not a high chance, but some) that the loser of the next election will attack the legitimacy of the election, which will result in some serious chaos not seen in our lifetimes. And this will just be ridiculous bickering over who the next emperor will be, rather than actually trying to fix the problem at its source by making the presidency less powerful or otherwise fixing things fundamentally.

Right as I was reading your first few points, I was thinking the SAME exact thing. There's no way in hell that the Dems are going to go after him for that sort of stuff, because all of those things are common things that the POTUS does at this point. Not something we like to admit everyday, but Congress has ceded large amounts of control to the President for no real reason -- just because it helps their party????

The President should NEVER be this powerful, but we're so caught up in the day to day bullshit that we're never going to attack the real issues in government.

Some of these include but are not limited to
1. The President being immensely powerful, being able to do whatever he wants with his pen and his phone.
2. Congress continuously failing to limit the deficit. Both parties yell about it when they don't hold the Presidency (or Congress) but when they actually take control they don't care enough to actually ensure the country is saved for long periods of time.
3. Congress fails to do much of anything.

Impeachment Odds Plummet As Trump Releases Ukraine Transcript (http://www.freedomsphoenix.com/News/268805-2019-09-25-impeachment-odds-plummet-as-trump-releases-ukraine-transcript.htm)



The Trump administration has released a White House transcript of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the heart of a whistleblower complaint.

Among other things, the transcript shows Trump discussing former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Here's the 'pressure' Trump put on Zelensky:

"The other thing, There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me."

Earlier in the conversation, Trump says: "I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike ... I guess you have one of your wealthy people... The server, they say Ukraine has it There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation I think you're surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it's very important that you do it if that's possible."

Yeah, I think the President is wrong here. But many presidents before him have also abused the office of the Presidency -- so what do you want him to do? Sit there and be the one President in history that doesn't use the powers that Congress has literally handed over to him.

I wasn't attacking any one particular President in my post -- I was talking about overarching ideas.

Congress was supposed to do things -- even if it wasn't supposed to be done fast. They literally get little to nothing done due to hyper partianship and a gridlocked congress.

We have issues in this country that Congress can try to fix -- but we'll never get to any of that when the President is being investigated for 15 other things by all of the committess in Congress that are supposed to be working for the nation instead of working for their party above everything.

If the guy was fired because of pressure from the US former administration related to the VP's son's affairs, I would like to see him reinstated with full back pay.

This has been overlooked in the discussion, and yet the prosecutor does seem to be an innocent victim in these power plays.

Then again the situation may have been more complex than that and we don't have the whole story. For example  Biden may have been confronted with a coercive demand and responded with a bigger coercive demand.

This is a fair and logical viewpoint. Yes, its true none of us know exactly what happened, and its easier to make assumptions and jump to conclusions based on our own political leanings.

The way I read thing was the prosecutor was (supposed to be) fired for being corrupt and reasons wholly unrelated to Biden's son, and of course he would say otherwise in an official statement. But we just don't know the whole story at this point.

Its going to be hard to find a non-partisan source that can put all the information together without introducing political bias; perhaps impossible.

It was personally fun for me to watch Adam Schiff grill Joseph McGuire, from an entertainment standpoint, and I still believe Trump is going to come out of this a lot more battered than Biden, but we can only wait and see what happens next.

What could have Ukraine possibly have used to coerce Biden unless he was up to something illegal? This false equivalency as if this could go either way is absolutely retarded. The corruption from the Bidens has long been documented and available to anyone who doesn't expect to be spoon fed like an invalid. The ENTIRE PURPOSE of pointing the finger at Trump here is the classic Saul Alinsky 101 tactic of accusing your opponents of the crimes you yourself are guilty of to confuse the situation and give any accusations the appearance of being empty and retaliatory when the exact opposite is true.

Trump didn't do a damned thing wrong in this case, or the thousands of other proven empty accusations against him. The corrupt old guard is staring down the end of a rope and are gasping for their last breaths of air trying desperately to save their own asses by creating as much chaos and confusion as possible. The only people still entertaining this narrative are either confirming their bias or are too brain dead to have even a moderate mount of critical thought that some one else didn't instruct them to have. This has nothing to do with partisanship. This is about reality vs fiction, and this false equivalency is just an excuse to not have to think critically and to fence sit because it is more convenient to not pick sides and throw your hands up and pretend no one knows.

I'm sure Washington Democrats would answer that there has been suspicion of crimes all along, and it is their duty to carry out such investigations. Unfortunately for them they are indeed stigmatized with a bit of "Boy who cried wolf" syndrome for constantly shitting their pants about everything Trump has done over the last 3 years. So if something actually damning did happen, nobody is going to believe them.

I have yet to see anybody formally accuse Biden of a crime.

A decision approved in parliament cannot be illegal.
In terms of abuse, it is a very stretchable category.
What about illegal immigrants on the border with Mexico?
Or with civilians in the Yemeni war?
The president of America is the most powerful man in the world, so it's too daunting to say he was abused.
Let the legal process come to an end and determine the truth.

I know you are a fan of using suspicion alone as a basis for condemning people, but the judicial system requires facts, none of which the Democrat party has ever presented to support their position. It is their duty to serve the nation, not to erase the 2016 election results at all costs. The stigma they have is completely of their own creation. If they actually had any facts or evidence to present people would listen, but they never do.

Biden most certainly has been accused of many well documented crimes. Regarding legal action never being taken against Biden, who are you going to make a report to about a mob boss when you know he owns the sheriff? All that will mean is your ass. That is of course until a new sheriff is in town who is willing and able to bring these crimes to light. Most people don't understand the depth of corruption we are talking about here.

The USA has suffered an 8 year long (or longer) coup, and those responsible assumed they would again have control in 2016, but they failed. Now that those with the genuine interests of Americans at heart are again in control, there still remains many of the old corrupt guard still in place, and there is about to be a controlled burn to route them out and bring their complicity in this plot to light.  Why would people complicit in these crimes work to expose them? This goes for the media as well.

Bad Biden stuff has been out for 3 years, and nothing ever became of it. If something could have, it would have by now.

Bad Trump stuff (in the context of Ukraine) has been out for less than a week now and its already been the grounds for an impeachment inquiry.

Perhaps one set of bad stuff is actually worse than the other... Just perhaps.

They would have started an impeachment hearing over an excessively loud fart if they thought it would work. This is evidence of nothing but the democrat's desperation. Actually the Biden stuff has been in public since he was in office. Now what could possibly stop the prosecution of a very powerful connected corrupt man while he still held office?

Furthermore you pretend as if the dems wouldn't be screeching autistically calling it retribution for Russiagate if this was brought to light any sooner. Three years of unending obsessive scrutiny over Trump supposed election meddling, turnabout is fair play. That is of course unless you never gave a fuck about election meddling and only cared about the part that made Trump look suspect.

The video's been out for a while though, and nobody cared about it before this whole Trump Ukraine phone call stuff came to light. I could be mistaken but it sounds like part of the condition for release of the loan was that they fire this particular prosecutor guy. We don't know if it had anything to do with Biden's son -- asserting that it did (at this phase) is pure conjecture. What we do know for sure is that Trump asked a foreign leader for the favor of digging up dirt on a political opponent.

I suppose one good thing that happened is the whole affair shed light on how rampant political cronyism and nepotism is... Seems like Hunter Biden had no qualifications to have his particular job there whatsoever, and that he was just there because his last name is "Biden." Still not a crime, but it is the most unattractive thing about Biden in my eyes thus far (other than him already being pretty milquetoast and uninspiring as a politician).

Earlier you mentioned, regarding Trump even asking or bringing up the subject of Biden, his son and the prosecutor events, that Trump saying ANYTHING is fundamentally coercive.

I have a comment on that. It's trump that when in conversation between very powerful people, there is an element of high pressure. But here we get into a realm of the grammar and tactics of "Diplomacy." There is a right way to ask someone, and there is a right way to answer (both in the positive and the negative.) These are well understood and these methods are literally thousands of years old.

There is no way that anything negative can be constructed from the conversation of Trump in question.

By contrast Biden comes across and sounds like a crude, low life gangster.

The tactic here is to accuse Trump of exactly what the accuser is guilty of. A la Sal Alinsky tactics.

I'm personally, sick of it. Lying over and over for political advantage, to a scale really never seen before. The initial Russia hoax, the Kavanagh circus, now this.

My contributions to Trump and the Republicans who have came to his party, albeit late and after his election are going to be 10x those in the past.

He's looking for information that will put Biden in a good light?

No. He says "It sounds horrible to me."

Regardless, why is he talking to him about Giuliani? Isn't Giuliani supposed to be Trumps "personal" lawyer? If he really was looking into corruption from a standpoint of national interest, why insist that your personal lawyer meet with the president of a foreign nation?

The whole thing is absurd. Trump is screwed. This is the turd that broke the camel's back. It turns out the camel couldn't carry an infinite amount of turds.

There is no way that anything negative can be constructed from the conversation of Trump in question.

You're entitled to your opinion, as I am mine. At the end of the day, they are only that: opinions.

The Ukranian brought up Giuliani, not Trump.

RE "looking for information that will put Biden in a good light" etc, the firing of the prosecutor stopped the finding and assessment of information, period. Good or bad. That's what Biden did. I have to say here that I couldn't care less if the findings were good or bad. They are related to the conduct of Biden's son, who is not a political figure. But it matters to Biden.

Why doesn't that sound "horrible?"

What's certainly horrible is the orchestrated harassment of Trump via a fictional dossier, followed by the orchestrated harassment in the Kavanaugh hearing accompanied by a series of high questionable and outright fictional complaints, followed by this complaint about this phone call, leaked by a party who didn't even know the content but had only heard a rumor. We call that "heresay." This is a trend of consistent behavior at this point. Used to be, this was only seen in the weeks before a presidential election, when the Dems would pull at the last minute some dirt.

Now it seems to be non stop.

^^^ The scary answer is, to completely bring down the USA.

We have a President who is worshipped by some like a king or the Pope. But foundational law in the USA is built on the 12-person jury, and jury nullification. The king-President can be overruled by the 12-person jury.

What this means is, the people formally have the power, even though they don't use it much. It's written right into the foundational documents of government. Amendments 6 and 7 show the power direct, and Amendment 9 helps to direct people to the laws and rights that they had before the Constitution... laws and rights that are still existing in power today.

That's a pretty solid foundation. So, whatever is being promoted in the USA, by people of power throughout the world, is designed to bring the strongest country in the world down, because the bottom-line power in this country is under the control of the people rather than dictators.

That's correct but I don't understand why Giuliani is involved at all... If you're doing something for the sake of national interest, why involve your personal lawyer? Obviously Giuliani was previously talking to the Ukraine president... why? Just doesn't make sense to me...

What evidence do you have that they are related to the conduct of Biden's son? It would appear that the investigation started prior to Hunter Biden's involvement with Burisma.

Quote
The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) said an investigation was ongoing into permits granted by officials at the Ministry of Ecology for the use of natural resources to a string of companies managed by Burisma.

But it said the period under investigation was 2010-2012, and noted that this was before the company hired Hunter Biden.

“Changes to the board of Burisma Limited, which are currently the object of international attention, took place only in May 2014, and therefore are not and never were the subject of (the anti-corruption bureau’s) investigation,” the bureau’s statement said.

Hunter Biden was a director on Burisma’s board from 2014-2018, according to documents filed by the company in Cyprus, where it is registered.

Actually, this is a great article (https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/463307-solomon-these-once-secret-memos-cast-doubt-on-joe-bidens-ukraine-story) that tackles the other side, but the author concludes that it requires a much deeper investigation into the matter before any conclusions can be drawn:

Quote
Today, two questions remain.

One is whether it was ethically improper or even illegal for Biden to intervene to fire the prosecutor handling Burisma’s case, given his son’s interests. That is one that requires more investigation and the expertise of lawyers.

The second is whether Biden has given the American people an honest accounting of what happened. The new documents I obtained raise serious doubts about his story’s credibility. And that’s an issue that needs to be resolved by voters.

Post #60 and... https://www.scribd.com/document/427618359/Shokin-Statement

The evidence is the sworn testimony of the fired prosecutor.

I don't know if Biden's threat to with hold over a billion in US Aid unless his son was let off the hook is illegal under US law.

Something that's gone under the radar is that in the same conversation, Trump asks the Ukranian to look into the matter of the DNC server, which he says is in the hands of a Ukranian oligarche.

The video's been out for a while though, and nobody cared about it before this whole Trump Ukraine phone call stuff came to light. I could be mistaken but it sounds like part of the condition for release of the loan was that they fire this particular prosecutor guy. We don't know if it had anything to do with Biden's son -- asserting that it did (at this phase) is pure conjecture. What we do know for sure is that Trump asked a foreign leader for the favor of digging up dirt on a political opponent.

I suppose one good thing that happened is the whole affair shed light on how rampant political cronyism and nepotism is... Seems like Hunter Biden had no qualifications to have his particular job there whatsoever, and that he was just there because his last name is "Biden." Still not a crime, but it is the most unattractive thing about Biden in my eyes thus far (other than him already being pretty milquetoast and uninspiring as a politician).

People certainly did care. Unfortunately the media as well as the top levels of government were so corrupt that even if some one did try to bring attention to it, they would have accidentally choked on a handful of bullets.  The US intelligence agencies had just got done orchestrating a coup in Ukraine, I wonder why that would make the locals weary of bringing prosecution after all of that bloodshed? Of course Trump trying to enforce the law, looking into high level corruption is suspect, but anything about Biden, now well that is pure conjecture!

It sounds to me like he is a president doing his job going after high level corruption of government officials selling influence. This is something that not only is a well known pattern of behavior with Biden, but Obama, as well as the Clintons and others going back as long as they have had influence to sell. He is using Giulian because he has not only been around long enough to know all the dirt and how this mafia operates, but he is some one he has a personal relationship with and can trust. When trying to bust up an international criminal cartel within the highest levels of government within the most powerful nation in the world, that is important.

Trump is in a great position, and he is looking better every day. The only people who think he is screwed let Rachel Maddow do their thinking for them.

What evidence do you have Trump was doing anything improper? He asked for an actual investigation into high level corruption that is of international significance. Clearly he is guilty! You know what that call was about, that was Trump essentially saying to the Ukraine president:

"Look I know our nation has been corrupt as fuck and has really harmed your nation, but I am not with those guys. Go ahead and do a legitimate investigation and I will make sure there aren't consequences like the last time you tried to do this."

Interesting we shouldn't jump to conclusions about Biden, but clearly based on nothing Trump is fucked!  You keep bringing up the timeline as if it is evidence in favor of Biden's innocence, it is not. Let me lay out the order of events for you.

A very corrupt company exists in Ukraine. The government is breathing down their necks. In walks Biden who offers to fix their problem for them. Biden's son gets some down payment money for the influence peddling. Joe gets the investigation shut down by demanding the canning of the lead prosecutor of the case. In exchange his son is placed in a very lucrative position on its board, a position for which ha has zero qualifications for.

Hunter is not even qualified to work at McDonald's let alone on a Ukrainian energy firm's board. He literally wouldn't be able to get a job at McDonald's with his drug record. The only significant thing about him is the influence his daddy is peddling. All the elements of a rock solid criminal prosecution are evident. Means, motive, and opportunity.

However, I can see why the Bidens would like to get him over to the other side of the world...

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s surviving son, Hunter, hasn’t just dumped his wife for his late brother’s widow, he has squandered his family’s money on hookers, strip clubs and drugs....
“His spending rarely relates to legitimate family expenses, but focuses on his own travel (at times multiple hotel rooms on the same night), gifts for other women, alcohol, strip clubs, or other personal indulgences,” Kathleen Biden says of Hunter in the papers filed in Washington, DC, Superior Court on Feb. 23.
...
“Throughout the parties’ separation Mr. Biden has created financial concerns for the family by spending extravagantly on his own interests (including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations), while leaving the family with no funds to pay legitimate bills,” Kathleen says of Hunter in the filing.

OK, I'm reading it, and I do appreciate your civil demeanor in asking. I'm no fan of the American Thinker but I'm reading it anyway.

Here's some parts I have problems with:

Quote
These forces have no doubt already figured out they can't beat the president at the ballot box.

They did beat Trump at the ballot box. Hillary won the popular vote by almost 3 million votes! They just couldn't get the votes where it mattered, which has been strange to me ever since Bush vs. Gore. But I understand it is what it is.

Quote
the president's enemies have moved on to an entirely ordinary and appropriate telephone call.

This is ridiculous. In no way was the phone call "entirely ordinary and appropriate."

"Congrats on your win, guy. BTW, can you please open investigations into my political opponents for me? We'll set you up with my personal lawyer and you can talk it over with him."

Quote
Everything will be relevant in the Senate trial, and everyone, no exceptions, should be subpoenaed and interrogated under oath.  That means Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Brennan, James Comey, Peter Strzok, and the entire gang behind the coup.

That includes Strzok, his girlfriend Lisa Page, Clapper, Brennan, Comey, and whatever Deep State apparatchiks lied to the FISA judge to enable a spying operation on the Trump campaign and transition team — a crime without precedent and one that massively outweighs anything that could credibly be alleged against President Trump.

None of this is going to happen. It does sound like porn for talk radio and news-addicted conservatives, however.

Quote
In their apparent decision to impeach President Trump, the Democrats have taken the final step in the cold civil war they have been waging for nearly three years against a constitutionally elected president and his 63 million+ voters.

Deployment of Trump's recent favorite dog whistle, nice.

Quote
The President's response should be withering, broad, and uncompromising. It should be one that turns his attackers into the hunted, a fate their lies and crimes have more than earned them.

Again, this is just fantasizing. It sounds juicy if this is what you wanted to hear, and why you visited the American Thinker. However, outside of a core bunch of supporters, Trump doesn't have the political or public capital to engage in this kind of thing.

My response to the article is, bring it on.

There are a whole lot of Dems who are realizing that the Dem program is ultimately one of taking freedom away. Dem leaders are appealing to the selfish nature of a bunch of people who can't think well enough to get out there and work for a living. These useless people can't support the Dem leaders, but the others (the workers) will always find a way around supporting the welfare-system that the Dems are promoting. In other words, Dems are in failure mode, and will always be that way.

I see some rationale in what you are saying, but still I have trouble with that on several fronts.

Let me just ask this.

Consider the incredible assault on Kavanaugh by Democrats with the thinnest shreds of facts. Few Democrats objected to that.

And now POTUS requests politely some looking into Biden's past behavior and it's grounds for impeachment....

Sorry, your favored party doesn't have the reasoning ability to run this country.

Impeachment is for disobeying the law of the government corporation in some ways. A President who investigates corporate government activities by other government people, is absolutely doing his government job.

If a President uses his private capacity to investigate other people privately, that's a different story. A President has as much right to personally investigate other people as anybody does. With the Internet, these days, there is so much info about people listed in the public, that personal investigation of anybody by anybody is being done all the time. If it is personal, it doesn't have anything to do with the government corporation, and is not impeachable.

In this case, Trump has the right and duty to investigate. Why? Because Biden was using his position in government to further his own personal, outside-of-government circumstances by using his government position and power to do it. Biden's son was simply an extension of his father, like your hand is an extension of your arm. This is not acceptable activity for a person in corporate government as Biden was.

Biden was mixing private and public in ways not allowed by his position in the government corporation. The thing that would have been an impeachable offense for Trump would have been if he had NOT investigated the whole Biden situation.

That issue is neither here nor there. I stayed out of it entirely. But it did make for some great memes.

And now POTUS requests politely some looking into Biden's past behavior and it's grounds for impeachment....

Yes, because there are proper channels for that. Asking for a favor from one president to another isn't one of them. Kavanaugh wasn't anybody's political opponent as he wasn't running in an election against anybody.

Sorry, your favored party doesn't have the reasoning ability to run this country.

Its only my favored party this time around. I'm registered as a Libertarian and last election I voted for Gary Johnson. I'm not really that partisan. I just saw some bullshit being flung in Biden's general direction, looked into it, and discovered that it was designed to counter much weightier bullshit being flung at Trump.

Pretty sure Trump is out as president next time around. He will undoubtedly be replaced by a Democrat. Will it spell the end of America? Unlikely. It never has in the past.

Bring it on.

Wow dude. In this thread and a couple parallel to it, you've really managed to build quite a formidable mountain of bullshit and carve out a cave for yourself to live in the middle of it.

But I have to hand it to you: I never saw this coming. This video elevates your mountain to the Everest of Bullshit, which is quite a feat.

For god's sake get a grip man. Nobody's doing jack shit you wigged out ninny.

Let's review it blow-by-blowhard. 21 seconds in and your video is already a colossal colostomy bag:

"Militias all across the country, not just here in Arizona, but every single state are readying themselves and are prepared for what appears to be an AN ILLEGAL COUP TAKING OVER THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!!"

 :D :D :D :D :D

Yeah fuckin' all the Hawaii militias are just up in fucking arms over this outrage  :D

"NOW DONALD TRUMP TWEETED LAST NIGHT JUST THAT!!!!"

Another sad colon burster. Jesus Christ man. This is the stuff that passes for news in your mind?

"ILLEGAL
FORCEFUL
VIOLENT
SEIZURE"

Of what? Of what was left of your sanity, thats what.

"Your president, arguably the most powerful person in the world, is telling you straight to your face that a coup is occurring in Washington DC..."

I'd be forced to conclude that your president is a bona fide moron. He hasn't even been impeached yet so WTF is he talking about?

"Durr this is why we have our guns, so we can defend the president at all costs..."

Jesus Fried Chicken.

"NANCY PELOSI IS TELLING YOU THAT YOUR VOTE DIDN'T COUNT!"

No, actually the Electoral College told us that.

I can't go any further with this.

It was entertaining via its comical absurdity but 3 minutes in and now I'm done.

You have a pathological inability to recognize:

  • when you are wrong about something
  • the depths of your own paranoia

I'm convinced its a mixture of neurobiological / environmental factors, deep seeded in events that happened early in life, so I don't blame you for it.

"Most 'Muricans are asleep at the wheel, but the hamster running around in my brain is WOKE."

Not much else to say.

Let the circus that is P&S carry on.

edit: of course the entire thing is a pitch for a company that sells gold infoproducts based on the ever-impending apocalypse, should have seen that coming  ::)

That is quite a rambling clusterfuck of you desperately trying to convince yourself. The video itself is largely irrelevant, the general message is not. We are in the middle of a coup attempt in the US, this is a fact. It is also a fact that if they succeed there will in fact be civil war. The people of the USA will not tolerate their democratically elected leader being removed illegally and their voice being squelched. The sleeping giant is now wide awake, and dipshits like you aren't putting it back to bed. Not all of us are pussies like you who fled the country and still pretend to be an American and cast judgement from afar.

Cute dead memes and projections in lieu of an argument. I presented logical reasoning based on current events. You presented an emotionally based mental breakdown. Just because you ignore reality from thousands of miles away doesn't make it cease to exist Nutilduhhh.

The notion I asserted that you (and every other unstable conspiratard wingnut) aren't actually going to do jack shit should Trump be evicted from office is a fact, is equally so.

I think what's most hilarious about you is you are constantly accusing people of accusing people of doing something that their opponent is doing, all the while doing it yourself.

I have established in this thread as well as several others the attempt to deny the people of the US their democratically elected choice via mass media hysteria, open sedition in congress as well as the courts, and the general perversion of the legal process. I never said I personally was going to do anything. However if you believe that the US population will sit idly by while this coup takes place you are extremely ignorant.

Of course you are hiding thousands of miles away, so it is easy for you to pretend to be a tough guy and cry "bring it on" knowing full well you will be safe during this revolt. As someone who is constantly projecting, it is not surprising you lie to yourself so much that you believe your own projections. After all what is the point of projecting if you can't use it to hide your own unscrupulous acts? You just take it to the next level to help you hide from yourself.

I just can't believe how disconnected from reality or far gone mentally you have to be to believe that not only is a coup underway but civil war is about to break out. I can be flippant all day long knowing that a civil war is not happening no matter how much you believe it will. That's what being grounded in reality affords me.

Actually the coup happened a long time ago and was successful. Trump is leading the counter-coup before control is finalized, and the original factions are actively trying to stop him. Of course this is too deep for simpletons like Nutilduhh so I just simplified it for the sake of ease of communication.

Aren't coups usually pretty sudden, unconstitutional, and result in the leader of the coup immediately taking the place of the leader they overthrew?

That's not what's happening here.

I guess we could have our own American version of the coup if we want though.  It definitely makes an accusation sound more serious.

You are making a lot of assumptions. Coups are also quiet and subversive, it is not a requirement they are fast and loud. Also we aren't just talking about individuals but factions fighting. Trump just happens to be the chosen figurehead. The public face of the opposition is largely expendable and interchangeable. What would you call an assassination of a sitting president if not a coup BTW?

Coup as in Coup D'etat, right?  The word Coup implies something sudden and decisive.  Coup de Grace, for example, means a final death blow.

Assassinating a president doesn't necessarily mean it's a coup.  Although a president could certainly be assassinated during a coup.

I do think "attempted coup" is fair to describe the efforts to overthrown the Trump presidency by strongly pushing total fiction on the "Russian collusion." Granted, your mileage may vary. Others may want to use other phrases. And whether it's ongoing, or we have "failed coup #1" and are in the middle now of "stupid impeachment coup #2" is not an interesting debate.

Your personal interpretation is irrelevant. The actual definition of the word however is relevant.

Definition of coup d'état (noun) (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/coup%20d'%C3%A9tat):

": a sudden decisive exercise of force in politics especially : the violent overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group"


Definition of coup (verb) (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/coup):
": overturn, upset"

As you can see not only does the word coup not require violent and sudden overthrow, even by your interpretation an assassination of a sitting president fits quite firmly within it. The factions Trump is resisting now are linked to the JFK assassination, and that was absolutely a coup.

The last one is what they mean when they say coup in Scotland (pronounced coop, and spelled a bunch of different ways).  They use it when something falls down or gets knocked over.  (also not something that happens slowly)

Emergency alert - U.S. Marines reserve forces activated to respond to "threats in the Homeland."

We are learning today from multiple sources, both inside and outside the military, that a "hot coup" attempt has been mobilized against President Trump.

Three days ago, a directive order was issued by Brigadier General Daniel L. Shipley. The directive cites an "emergency within the United States" which "will come with little warning" and involves "threats in the Homeland."

The order coincides with other intel we're receiving about the illegal coup attempt against Trump going "hot." Mass hysteria in the media and a total censorship crackdown among the tech giants further underscores a coordinated, criminal coup taking place in America right now.

The lawless Dems and their deep state traitors are now trying to arrest or execute President Trump before they are all exposed as criminal traitors (in upcoming document releases from AG Barr and the IG report).

See the full details here (https://ce-public.naturalnews.com/ct.asp?id=EF43FA40BD005FE7C980353FD8E394909FBC78A90D9BD0A60B9EB34BADCE29193E898AF71E720FBCAF080719131F7F312D7DA875129FDF09D991FF3C724B9D1D&ct=4aeUs4AAAABCWmgzMUFZJlNZa%2BY5JAAAHxmAAAPxMC%2Fn36AgAGhFMaT1AyeUepjUeoY8aQ0ag0DQ0SJbVvkx3hWYPmDoxp0gIMB0Hknc18iYFNijLVlo84xOJpg96CG5QbO09Fu6G%2FeC%2B3kjKUgUyNTyL4hWDkh0qjBFGIFZhjs34u5IpwoSDXzHJIA%3D).

----------

Also today: There are no real whistleblowers [against Trump and his people]. It's all staged. The entire news media is gaslighting the nation with fake news. Every element of this coup is completely fabricated. [with the idea that the fabrication will cause the coup]

See the full report here (https://ce-public.naturalnews.com/ct.asp?id=83A34D12EA623E0E2AB552151EBEEBED8EAB132562002F1CC63251F43DAE41D67090C8C99DA0C46C4B1C1F60915D008B8206411E205537A143FDC88145CA7373&ct=4aeUs2wAAABCWmgzMUFZJlNZa44QpAAAGhmAAAPxMD5334AgAGoinpiJoyekDamnoRTeUmanlMjQaAKVW%2BGAXanqE6twtlBTE51xFYYPpAMEFbxs3L7zL5Si9xsOrxVZt2IGvyqCjTCWrrLH3dFMBZoFy8tj1oTZF3JFOFCQa44QpA%3D%3D).

----------

Taxpayer-funded National Public Radio just proved it is now part of the deep state’s ongoing coup attempt against President Trump (https://ce-public.naturalnews.com/ct.asp?id=93EA9D320E3128B7DBA5B5AA08D1F25F3B1842F9C13CCF894F16344EACAFD104D0DBBAE60F28E664688D2F33D0CF1DD82BD87B976F1F9C8316E0549BEABFB2FD&ct=4aeUs2YAAABCWmgzMUFZJlNZmoioYQAAF5mAAAPxMD5n34AgAGoqeU9J6IZNoMhDH6Cj1P1TJoB6g5O8593rTpmHaLRKo5CAo5yHomGtKWAY9sL4nhz3x29SWqVoTWQLRFIKJc0tKMN9HHyOqhzbARmC%2Fi7kinChITURUMI%3D).

Where are the indictments of those implicated in the coup attempt against Trump (https://ce-public.naturalnews.com/ct.asp?id=B48339054304974DD3EE0598C7692B8FEE1D35FB533E57D0D409B8485D0A296F3CA87C4AD33789EF08BA8CC0F64822380D482C64A00145B5D810D51037FA2E6A&ct=4aeUs2AAAABCWmgzMUFZJlNZjZ%2FK8AAAFxmAAAPxMC7n3oAgAEiKbZUGmn6oaGagRT9TKYyh6mINPUGcK0OwoD8rbLdMjIzPXrtFXuDeVUD4eZxFMlH1SjKuwOC1WgkioW%2BXGEdrGc6oL2m1Npefi7kinChIRs%2FleAA%3D)?

Usually /= always. Like I said, your personal interpretation is irrelevant.

The first definition just means that when people say "coup", they usually mean "coup d'etat.

Usually /= always.

Correct!  Usually and always are not the same.

Has anyone figured out what the charges for impeachment might be? For a long time it was supposed to be Russia Collusion, but I heard that was gone. Then I heard it was going to be Tit-For-Tat, but that's been not mentioned for some time now.

It's pretty clear they are primarily trying to impeach him for abusing his power to influence the election.  Are you really only paying attention to media sources that point out why he shouldn't be impeached?

They will probably tack on a couple obstruction articles for ordering everyone he can to not cooperate and also attacking the witness on twitter last week mid-testimony.  

Oh is it clear? Because to me it is clear they are pushing removal and resistance first then manufacturing evidence to support these actions later. This is all about butthurt over losing in 2016. The left are tyrants that cant tolerate a peaceful handover of power. They must be in charge at all times, and if they can't be they will stomp their feet, scream, and burn it all down. Why would anyone cooperate with this? Obstruction of what cupcake? You mean like obstruction of the Russia investigation that also never happened?

I do recall a lot of "Obstruction" words being batted around back in the Days of Mueller. But it all seemed to fade away.

But I do think that Twitch has a point, that Trump abused his power to influence the election. Just remember the Repub debates. Trump against 16 or 17. Next it was just Trump. You know that was unfair. His superior abilities against their inferior abilities.

And then Trump abused his power by beating Hitlery. The proof is that he won, see?

I do admit it would be very interesting to see a United States President impeached for a tweet.

Do it. Please, just do it.

Doesn't really matter the medium of the crime. Plenty of people have been convicted for posts online historically. Nothing new there...
However we got him on about 50+ charges non-internet related ;)

Gonna be good once he's removed from office and then criminally liable for everything he's done.

And that's "good." Interesting point of view.

I guess then the POTUS Ivanka will just take care of that annoyance.

Don't you think at some point people will tire of the hate?

Yep, just before they are loaded on the rail cars.

I was reviewing yesterday the Bolshevik Revolution, in which Communists took over in 1917 Russia. What started as enthusiasm and idealism, and the freshness of a new political system in just a few years devolved into statis and totalitarianism.

It seems the American left, once a party of serious principles, has gone a similar route.

The only reason is that the people are so ignorant, that they don't know to use common law courts of record.
