Political candidates seeking votes on the basis of their commitment to stopping “climate change” — a category that includes all the Democratic candidates for president — might want to reconsider how much emphasis they place on the subject. Two respected nationwide polls have found once again that preventing global warming is a very low priority for Americans.
A provision of the rules adopted by the Republican-majority Senate will allow a vote to dismiss the impeachment case against President Donald Trump, or move to an immediate verdict, should managers from the House of Representatives — all Democrats hand-picked by Speaker Nancy Pelosi — attempt to “hijack and take control of the trial,” according to a source quoted by Breitbart News.
The Democrats who are rushing to have the House of Representatives vote to impeach President Trump have several hurdles to contend traverse. For one, there are approximately 20 Democrat House members who won their seats in 2018 in districts won by Trump in 2016. Should they vote for impeachment, they can expect to face formidable Trump-favoring challengers on Election Day 2020. Obviously, they don’t want that.
In January 2019, President Donald Trump declared that America must “stop the endless wars.” And he announced that, in keeping with his campaign pledges, he would begin pulling U.S. forces out of Syria. Finally, in October, he began making good on the promise, only to be hammered by his usual critics in the media, the foreign policy establishment, and the War Party in Congress (the coalition of Democrats and Republicans who can be relied on to support U.S. involvement in any war, anywhere, any time).
Two Democratic members of the House of Representatives, Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, voted against a resolution passed on October 31 calling for an inquiry into the impeachment of President Trump. And — as was noted in an article posted by The New American on November 25 — “an increasing number of Democrats in swing districts are getting ‘cold feet’ about going through with an impeachment vote on President Donald Trump.”
The 10-candidate Democratic presidential debate held Wednesday night in Atlanta had two main points. The first was that President Donald Trump was a “pathological liar” and “corrupt” (Senator Bernie Sanders), and that “we have a criminal living in the White House” (Senator Kamala Harris). Harris even included Vice President Mike Pence in what she called a “criminal enterprise.”
House Democrats are continuing to press forward with plans to impeach President Trump — pretending there is any merit whatsoever to their claims. While that is happening, more and more information is coming to light about the real criminal scandal at the foundation of their most recent claim regarding Trump’s July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly spent an hour trying to convince then-UN Ambassador Nikki Haley to join them in opposing key policies of President Donald Trump, Haley has revealed in her new book, With All Due Respect, according to the Washington Post.
Tech giants Facebook and YouTube announced on Friday that they are removing all content that mentions the name of Eric Ciaramella, the CIA analyst and former National Security Council staffer reported to potentially be the whistleblower whose complaint led to Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Despite being ridiculed as a “hoax” by President Donald Trump on the campaign trail, liberal Republican members of Congress are quietly working to convert enough GOP lawmakers on the man-made global-warming hypothesis. The goal: To make drastic “climate action” possible. Lobbyists for Big Climate — an alliance that includes billionaire globalists, Big Oil, the mega-banks, and more — expressed optimism that easing Republican opposition could pave the way for “strong” legislation combating the gas humans exhale (CO2). But with Trump withdrawing from the United Nations “Paris Agreement,” it appears that critics of climate alarmism and pseudo-science currently have the upper hand.
