There have been — I’d guess you’d call them — “armchair historians” saying that things are going in the same direction for Trump as went for Richard Nixon about four decades ago, to wit, Republicans’ concern that the Watergate Scandal and Nixon’s role in it would ruin the party’s future of ever winning a midterm or Presidential election again, so Nixon had to go. Nixon was up against it, so he caved and resigned.

So, now the speculation is that things will come to a head with the Russian-election-collusion scandal with Trump’s eventually being up against the wall followed by Trump’s expected caving in and resigning the Presidency.

I am beginning to sense that history is not going to be repeating itself here.

“Why?” you may be asking.

Well, Republicans are in control of Congress, and they have been characterized as anticipating Trump’s signature on whatever they shove under Donald Trump’s nose, most notably Obamacare repeal and a tax cut bill that Paul Ryan obsessively and desperately wants to be passed. So, it can be said that Trump is Congress's useful idiot.

Probably more important is that REPUBLICANS ACTUALLY LIKE RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE in our elections, especially the projected Russian interference in the 2018 midterm elections and the 2020 Presidential election. This interference most definitely BENEFITS the Republicans in their quest for continued control of the entire United States of America government. The Republicans in their unspoken, pssst-hush-hush, way are passive-aggressively cheering on Putin and his minions: “Give us more! We want more!”

Ahhhh, traitoring and treason at its finest.

New party motto: “Party before country; Putin before democracy!”

Maybe republicans require a law to be broken before asking someone to resign.

Hmm the anti-Trump brigade is in full force today i wonder if another story is about to break that blows the russian narrative to smithereens. Are you scared? You should be.

In Nixon's case, people had come up with some actual evidence which made it impossible for his party to continue supporting him. In Trump's case, we are still waiting for hard evidence to be produced.

Does a law or its being broken have as much relevance to the situation as does politics?

It's been said (and this was said pretty early on in the Russia controversy) that "Congress does not multitask well," meaning that the government gets bogged down when there is an outstanding scandal with which to deal.

So, it remains to be seen if total governmental gridlock due to Trump and his excess baggage become a priority for the Republicans... or will desired Russian interference in the upcoming elections to benefit Republicans trump all?

Let's be real. Congress would be bogged down regardless. The republicans are a split party, and it's silly to think that putting Pence in office would make them any more effective. If it did, then I would expect it would have less to do with anything Trump was doing and more to do with the ongoing hissy fit from NeverTrumpers.

The bald truth is that the political class is as obstinate about having an executive who isn't one of them as the left is about having lost the election to a reality TV star.

In both cases, the plain truth is that they have lost touch with the people of the country. And if the GOP doesn't pull its head out of its collective @ss there will be another reckoning in 2018. People didn't put them there because they love Republicans; they got there because people don't like Democrats. But hatred of Democrats and fear of the crazy, insane left only goes so far.

The country is in real trouble and needs some things to be done to unwind the damage that has been done, and the ongoing temper tantrum is only a distraction, not action.

It's not done yet..

They are setting trump up by dropping the info piece by piece. So trump will get caught lying at every step..

"I promise we never even met with any Russians..that is the whole story.."

"Ok we met with Russians but not about colluding.. that's the whole story.."

"Ok we met with the Russians to collude , but nothing happened and it was a pretend agent anyway.. that's the whole story.."


"Ok, ok there was also a Russian counter intelligence agent there.. but that's the whole story. We promise."

People put them there because they are either too busy to pay attention, or buy into the gaggle of insane republican conspiracy theories..

For example...

They believe democrats want to ban guns, when no one has ever said that.. it would be political suicide and no law enforcement body would be willing to do it..

You perfectly know what kind of crap was the other option. You must thank God to have Trump instead, Russians or not.

Everyone else was using their own provate server as well..

All the bush's , Colin Powell and countless other politicians..

They couldn't actually prosecute her for what everyone else was happily doing as well.


No one else has been caught helping a forien adversary swing a US presidential election.

The system is broken.. hillary was not uniquely corrupt.. they all pay for play.. they all insider trade it is legal for them.

But ibviously that should change.. why do I already know trump doesn't do a thing about it.

I do believe that Trump will step aside, but he will never admit guilt or defeat. I think he'll claim some kind of health issue, the truth of which is no stretch of the imagination.

ANTIFA, BLM, and the campus insanity are not conspiracy theories and the Democrats back these movements to the hilt. Major universities are losing enrollment thanks to these movements and confidence in higher education is eroding.

Open borders and amnesty are not conspiracy theories and the Democrats back them to the hilt. Even 40% of Democrat voters polled by Gallup don't like those policies!

Guns are not the only issue people vote on, but thanks for making this overly simplistic.

You also left out support for crumbling Obamacare. When the federal mandated health policy leaves you with no insurance provider in your area, are you supporting the party that wants to continue on with that? That hurts Democrats too.

Oh yes they absolutely are..

And it is a logical fallacy that would get you laughed out of a high school debate..

What logical fallacy is it when you point at one idiot and pretend their opinion is shared by half of the country???

I forget??

It's not even good propaganda.. they go out and find the most ridiculous person they can, then pretend somehow they are the spokesman for "the left"..

This isn't a right only tactic .. it is old as politicians are..

No different than pretending the westboro baptist church are the spokesman for all Christians.

There is no one box you can put ANY large group of people into..

Infact BLM is a great example of that..

Police accountability is not a black only issue.. that is an everyone issue..

Telling people it is a black only issue is telling 87% of the population..

"This is not an issue that concerns your children.. this only concerns black children.

When if you think some jumpy cop wouldn't blow away your blonde haired blue eyed baby because he got nervous and tried to reach for his wallet to give the cop his ID. Your crazy...

But where you somehow see a vast conspiracy involving the elite left wing.. I see lazy messaging and zero organization.

I didn't point at the police though, and BLM are not just pointed at the police anymore. They are entangled in the campus craziness as much as anything else. They have disrupted gay pride parades to get angry with the gays for not being inclusive enough. In fact, while BLM might have started out pointed at the issue of police trouble, they've spilled into far more than that.

They and ANTIFA are two sides of the same coin at present.

But the point is that Democrats back them. Major elected officials, local elected officials either implicitly or explicitly back these movements through word or action. People notice. Study your history and it becomes plain what is going on.

The immigration thing I agree with.. I could care less about immigrants and would always take care of Americans first.



And would happily concede it is 99% just the democrats attempt to buy votes.

I don't consider that the most pressing issue we have or anything, But it's probably true.


Obama care was supposed to be single payer.. just like every other modern country on the planet..

The GOP derailed that talking about death panels and insisted the insurance companies still be included because of if not "that's Socialism!!"

Forgetting that ATLEAST half of every country is socialist.. state paid military, fire and police?? All socialist.. Medicare the interstate system??? Socialist..

Anytime taxes are used for the benefit of the country as a whole it is socialism..

Yeah the man with the endurance of a duracell rabbit who attended countless rallys and sleeps 2 hours a day will step down because of health issues. Yep makes perfect sense. The mental gymnastics are reaching olympic proportions. You people crack me up.
