One America News network is the only one that President Trump has given KUDOS to in the past several weeks.

You are just in denial.

It is against the law for Trump to use money allocated by Congress to serve his own personal gain.

I think if the impeachment ever gets tried in the Senate, the Senate will convict Trump based the quality of the evidence. What I think the Senate will NOT do is acquit Trump of any wrong doing solely because he is a member of the Republican party.

But just like Nixon, I bet Trump will resign before the impeachment ever makes it to the Senate:



I was a small boy at the time but my grandmother made me watch this live.

McConnell already said NO. No is No ! This is going to get interesting.

October 11, the fateful day during the Revolutionary War of the Siege of York Town followed by British surrender. I like the optics here.

So, Democracy is not an American value that is worth defending and promoting?

If so, the enemy has won.


I didn't say that did I, perhaps tweisting words and finding meaning where this is none is a Democratic trait.

Nice try, but fabrication of narratives is not my style.

I prefer facts over "truths".

What Democracy? The United States is a Representative Republic. That is why a "popular vote" for president is meaningless. But then, that is a foreign concept to many, including you it seems.


Congress is Democratically elected. State legislators and governors are Democratically elected. Many judges are Democratically elected.

Yes they are good for you. However, the United States is still a representative republic. Those representatives are democratically elected, but that does not make this a democary....at....all.

But, you keep twisting and contorting to fit your "popular vote matters" attitude with regards the the United States as a whole.

But, we are NOT a democracy dude. Face it. We (meaning the United States of America) are a representative republic. That is a fact.

Now, if you want to say, "defend our republic", then I can empathize and have an intelligent discussion. But, if you refuse to even recognize the type of government we have, then there can be no discussion.

Is it because the word "republic" is in there?
Is it too close to the word republican for your feeble sensitivities to handle?

Are you unaware that our Founders absolutely despised democracies, for the very reason that they will always - always self-destruct once 'the people' learn that they can simply vote themselves bread and circuses.

You see the difference between a democracy and aConstituytional Republic, is there are a lot of things that the government - meaning, the tyranny of the majority - can not do, wherein in a Democracy, if 51% vote to take all of your stuff, that is all that is needed.


If so, the enemy has won.

If enough people lose sight of the difference between the two - that is when the enemy has won - and we are dangerously close to that reality, although I am more hopeful than I have been in a very long time that people are actually waking up in droves, and we may, in fact, be able to save our Republic.

You do realize that an absolute Republic is impossible when there is a Free Market and an entity such as a Federal Reserve System?

Have you studied 'The Republic' by Plato? There is no salvaging an absolute Republic in our current phase.

Yes, we have a constitution but, did you know every State in America has it's own version of the Constitution?

This 'enemy' you speak of is not solely the Democrats or Democracy. Understand that it's the Oligarchs.

If a foreign government were to try to subvert our elections, they would be attacking our Constitutional Republic.

Just because our system employs some democratic principles (the concept of voting for example), does not make it a democracy.

Of course, but irrelevant to the question under discussion.

Does America have a Democracy? Do we employ Democratic elections to select leaders to run our government?

If so, should our elected officials have a duty to defend that system?

again with the Russians sent memes to "interfere" in our elections,they didnt change votes and the sure as hell didnt stage coups you know like we the USA have done for over a century what the Russians did amounted to was trolling

en.wikipedia.org...
from 1846 to the present the united states has interfered in countless elections from Latin America (literally all of them+invading Grenada) to eastern Europe and Asia, granted a few were wars but more often then not we just removed their leaders either through bloody coups,rigging their elections or straight up installing despots and the occasional over throwing of local monarchy's (see Hawaii) Hell some times we let our own corporations help over throw the nation in question (aren't you pro socialism? how can you condone our actions done by corporations yet get offended by memes?)

so its ok for us to "interfere" in other nations elections from removing opposing leaders,killing them,bombing them ,staging coups but oh no the Russians shared memes and organized a few fake events to sow chaos(fake pro and anti trump rallies) so its a "threat to our democracy?" your doing EXACTLY what the Russian's wanted to get us at each others throats ,so how does it feel being putins puppet? i mean what else can we call what you have been doing since trump got elected spewing all your false hoods and wanting to remove a democratically (in a republic) elected president?

you wanna know why most on the right don't care about meme interference because we are so much more guilty of doing this again since the frigging 1800s from above wikilink

1918 russia After the new Bolshevik government withdrew from World War I, the U.S. military together with forces of its Allies invaded Russia in 1918. Approximately 250,000 invading soldiers, including troops from Europe, the US and the Empire of Japan invaded Russia to aid the White Army against the Red Army of the new Soviet government in the Russian civil war. The invaders launched the North Russia invasion from Arkhangelsk and the Siberia invasion from Vladivostok. The invading forces included 13,000 U.S. troops whose mission after the end of World War I included the toppling of the new Soviet government and the restoration of the previous Tsarist regime. U.S. and other Western forces were unsuccessful in this aim and withdrew by 1920 but the Japanese military continued to occupy parts of Siberia until 1922 and the northern half of Sakhalin until 1925.[24] 1941: Panama The United States government used its contacts in the Panama National Guard, which the U.S. had earlier trained, to orchestrate a coup against the government of Panama in October 1941. The U.S. had requested that the government of Panama allow it to build over 130 new military installations inside and outside of the Panama Canal Zone, and the government of Panama refused this request at the price suggested by the U.S.[25] President Arnulfo Arias fled the country and Ricardo Adolfo de la Guardia Arango, the leader of the coup and a friend of the US government, became president.[26]
perhaps the russians are still salty about us backing their oligarchs vs the communists in ye old russian civil war would you rate this as worse then what the russians did in 2016(again memes vs legit regime changes) how about the demands to panama ,let our military set up shop all over their country or else we remove their president and install our own puppet? would you call that worse or better then memes and social media campaigns?

www.latimes.com... this link also covers out election meddling if you don't like Wikipedia

The U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries – it’s done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000, according to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University. That number doesn’t include military coups and regime change efforts following the election of candidates the U.S. didn’t like, notably those in Iran, Guatemala and Chile. Nor does it include general assistance with the electoral process, such as election monitoring.
seems the USA is a bigger threat to other nations "democracy's" then russia's meme wars of 2016

www.theatlantic.com... perhaps you prefer a more left leaning news site then the la times here's the Atlantic's take

What many Russians, but few Americans, know is that 20 years before Russia tried to swing an American presidential election, America tried to swing a presidential election in Russia. The year was 1996. Boris Yeltsin was seeking a second term, and Bill Clinton desperately wanted to help. “I want this guy to win so bad,” he told Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott, “it hurts.” Clinton liked Yeltsin personally. He considered him Russia’s best hope for embracing democracy and capitalism. And he appreciated Yeltsin’s acquiescence during NATO’s march eastward, into the former Soviet bloc. Unfortunately for Clinton, ordinary Russians appreciated their leader far less. Yeltsin’s “shock-therapy” economic reforms had reduced the government’s safety net, and produced a spike in unemployment and inflation. Between 1990 and 1994, the average life expectancy among Russian men had dropped by an astonishing six years. When Yeltsin began his reelection campaign in January 1996, his approval rating stood at 6 percent, lower than Stalin’s. So the Clinton administration sprang into action. It lobbied the International Monetary Fund to give Russia a $10 billion loan, some of which Yeltsin distributed to woo voters. Upon arriving in a given city, he often announced, “My pockets are full.”
so the dem's are all mad about the memes being interference meanwhile in the mid 90s we threw 10 billion dollars into Russia's election to pick the leader we wanted but yeah those terrible evil democracy crushing memes sure were terrible so again memes bad but giving 10 billion dollars so another nations politician can grease the wheels to help elect the president we want in Russia is sure fine and dandy
few more links
www.cato.org...

www.theguardian.com...

But while Americans feel justifiably angry at alleged interference with their political process, they have also been handed a mirror, and the reflection should disturb them. For the US is a world leader in the field of intervening in the internal affairs of other countries. The alleged interference is far more extensive than hacking into emails belonging to unfavoured political parties. According to research by political scientist Dov Levin, the US and the USSR/Russia together intervened no less than 117 times in foreign elections between 1946 and 2000, or “one out of every nine competitive, national-level executive elections”.

Where is the duty to shut down illegal immigration and sanctuary cities, upholding the democracy of federal laws?

Fact: Without the representatives from districts contained wholly within sanctuary cities the House couldn’t impeach a dog catcher that only profiled cats.

There was a concerted effort by a gang of people to shake down the Ukrainian president to make a bogus announcement.
The phone call was just a part. A damn good part as far as evidence goes but still just part of what was happening.
Mike Pence saying he wont go to Zelenski's inauguration, Giuliani saying Zelenski wont get to visit the white house, Sondeland saying they wont get the promised aid, all contingent on Zelenski making a bogus announcement about Joe and Hunter Biden that is a complete fantasy.
Well Zelenski wont make the announcement because he will come off as a pawn to trump.
and all those gentlemen are now in trouble too.
