Republicans will never kill the goose that laid the golden egg. Look at the stock market. Trump is a New York Business man, he's the best thing that ever happened to Wall Street. They love him.

The Pentagon, the Banksters, the factories for war. Never better.


Quantitive easing is the best thing that ever happened to Wall Street.

Soon to be the worst unfortunately.

Inflation is another way putting that. Inflation from ever increasing fiat currency supply.

Gotta love that term, "Qantitative Easing".

I don't think anything will be found . Maybe on Manafort, not Trump . If the Awan brothers ever get an investigation there will be lots of things found . One for sure is it wasn't a hack . It was an internal leak

Wow, if this is legit, this guy either has one hell of a detailed memory recall or he tapes all of his phone conversations, including those with his very good friends. However, there will be plenty of people willing to overlook things like common sense and reasonable deduction in favor of believing whatever sensational bull# these bad fiction writers vomit out on social media every day for their adoring followers. You know, because if they said it on facebook, it must be true.

If you knew much about political, social and entertainment reporting, apparently you don't, Vanity Fair is one of the best.

You’re just repeating Trump brainwashing rhetoric

Trump is so dumb and unqualified he told Hannity and the idiots who support him tonight that the US gave up over a billion dollars in the Iran deal, a total distortion and lie.


That billion dollars is own money

That was a hilarious read! That read like some sort of comedy skit.

So if everyone bailed on Trump, that would be grounds for impeachment? Can you confirm this?

HAHAHAHAHA! Good one!

2 things were mentioned: impeachment and the 25th Amendment. Impeachment would have to start in the House of Representatives. However, according to Section 4 the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution, the Cabinet or a committee created by Congress can vote to remove a President.

Section 4.

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

So if Trump were to really lose the confidence of the majority of congressional Republicans & his own Republican subordinates, they could remove him from the presidency even without impeaching him. Of course, they could also just impeach him, but that would require action in the House of Representatives and then a "trial" in the Senate. The 25th Amendment based version might actually be easier in this specific case.

That's why they keep pointing out that he's dangerous, unhinged, mentally unfit, not of sound mind, incompetent, etc. They're literally building a case for him to be removed. Still hilarious, right?

Total nonsense. Why? Because the republicans know very well that those who voted for Trump would let the republic party crash and burn if they'd try something like this.

We voted republican because Trump. We did not vote Trump because we're republican.

The USA (Obama) did "give it up" to Iran.

1. I'm not in office & I have no power whatsoever when it comes to removing him. So direct your comments at them. They even have twitter accounts and phone numbers.

2. I'm not a Republican, much less a Republican that's "considering impeachment of Trump" as the OP suggests. So your comments are once again aimed at the wrong person.

3. Now let's suppose that he were removed by a Republican controlled Congress through impeachment or by a Republican dominated Cabinet that exercises the 25th Amendment. I'd imagine your little "civil war" would be between pro-trump rightwingers & pro-Republican establishment rightwingers.

So please remind me why I should feel worried by your "threat" of a civil war? If your words were true, wouldn't that simply serve to inspire me to try ramping up the efforts to have him removed? Why would I want a united right wing when the right wing opposes nearly every policy that I stand for?

Just read this a little while ago on Robert Reich's Facebook page. Now Reich's definitely a hard leftie, and I rarely agree with him, but I don't think he'd fabricate something like this. He is generally a well-respected guy in political circles.



This morning I phoned my old friend, a Republican former member of Congress.
Me: So what’s up? Is Corker alone, or are others also ready to call it quits with Trump?
He: All I know is they’re simmering over there.
Me: Flake and McCain have come pretty close.
He: Yeah. Others are thinking about doing what Bob did. Sounding the alarm. They think Trump’s nuts. Unfit. Dangerous.
Me: Well, they already knew that, didn’t they?
He: But now it’s personal. It started with the Sessions stuff. Jeff was as loyal as they come. Trump’s crapping on him was like kicking your puppy. And then, you know, him beating up on Mitch for the Obamacare fiasco. And going after Flake and the others.
Me: So they're pissed off?
He: Not just that. I mean, they have thick hides. The personal stuff got them to notice all the other things. The wild stuff, like those threats to North Korea. Tillerson would leave tomorrow if he wasn’t so worried Trump would go nuclear, literally.
Me: You think Trump is really thinking nuclear war?
He: Who knows what’s in his head? But I can tell you this. He’s not listening to anyone. Not a soul. He’s got the nuclear codes and, well, it scares the hell out of me. It’s starting to scare all of them. That’s really why Bob spoke up.
Me: So what could they do? I mean, even if the whole Republican leadership was willing to say publicly he’s unfit to serve, what then?
He: Bingo! The emperor has no clothes. It’s a signal to everyone they can bail. Have to bail to save their skins. I mean, Trump could be the end of the whole goddam Republican party.
Me: If he starts a nuclear war, that could be the end of everything.
He: Yeah, right. So when they start bailing on him, the stage is set.
Me: For what?
He: Impeachment. 25th amendment.
Me: You think Republicans would go that far?
He: Not yet. Here’s the thing. They really want to get this tax bill through. That’s all they have going for them. They don’t want to face voters in ’18 or ’20 without something to show for it. They’re just praying Trump doesn’t do something really, really stupid before the tax bill.
Me: Like a nuclear war?
He: Look, all I can tell you is many of the people I talk with are getting freaked out. It’s not as if there’s any careful strategizing going on. Not like, well, do we balance the tax bill against nuclear war? No, no. They’re worried as hell. They’re also worried about Trump crazies, all the ignoramuses he’s stirred up. I mean, Roy Moore? How many more of them do you need to destroy the party?
Me: So what’s gonna happen?
He: You got me. I’m just glad I’m not there anymore. Trump’s not just a moron. He’s a despicable human being. And he’s getting crazier. Paranoid. Unhinged. Everyone knows it. I mean, we’re in # up to our eyeballs with this guy.


Robert Reich Facebook post

Wow. If this is legit, this is indeed deeply concerning. Thoughts?
You can bet they are getting nervous...That's why we elected Trump...To drain the swamp and reveal the bottom dwellers...And there's a bunch of them...And they do have to worry about 65 million or so ignorant crazies who would love to see them go...

Mr. Reich must have an amazing memory - or perhaps he has a habit of recording his phone calls with friends so he can transcribe the convos later and publish the content word by word... Which would be rather creepy.


Of course he records his conversations... he is a journalist for crying out loud. Its is lesson number 1 in Journalism school.

I suspect your civil war will be boring for most people, since most people will simply stay home and watch Netflix. Or maybe we can watch coverage of the civil war on CNN or something.
