I brought this up a few times, but I feel it's really important with the lessons of that age old story.

With Schiff making the claims he has continuously that he has proof of all the horrible things Trump has done, only to look like an ass when he doesn't come up with any proof at all, it diminishes that line of thinking. We had over 2 years of Mueller, with the MSM constantly claiming "BOMBSHELL" moments, which were all duds. We had Shifty Schiff assuring us that Trump was a Russian agent, and he had proof. Then we moved to impeachment over some foreign policy in Ukraine, which seems like it's about over now, another dud.

So what happens if Trump does do something awful? Will the public jump on board and believe the next "BOMBSHELL", or will they tune it out?

I think the democratic party as a whole has taken a few too many beatings, all that they initialized, swung first, and antagonized until a real fight did break out. They are looking pretty weak now. With such little time left until the election, the only message I see is "I'm running for president and I'm not Trump". I feel as if the nation will need a bit more substance than that to change the way things have been going.

China trade is looking better, Canada and Mexico are eagerly awaiting Pelosi to do her job for just a few minutes and pass the new bill. Things just seem to be moving in a positive direction, in spite of how horrible Trump makes some feel.

If the democrats who will be left in congress after the next election ever hope to provide real oversight of the President, they will need to curtail the fake attacks, and stop manufacturing a crisis. I can't stand the left, but balance is needed to keep power in check.

I have tuned out to any claims against Trump for this very reason. I looked at so many MSM stories where they were flat out lies almost every time, I don't even check anymore.

that coupled with the need to counter all the bullsh!t and lies, makes it so the one's who should be watching closely, aren't doing it as it should be done. I just think it's wrong to promote the constant lies and grandstanding BOMBSHELLS!!!!!

As someone who usually sticks up for Trump, if I make a negative thread about something Trump related, I'm blasted much like any typical leftie would be. This culture has brought us to that. It's dangerous.

The ethics committee should investigate the fact that he says he has proof but he can't produce the evidence.

Maybe he does have proof which he uses as an insurance policy so they do not try to charge him with ethics violations, maybe the proof is of other congressmen and is not related to Trump at all. He probably has set people up to make it so they cannot challenge him. That actually makes sense.

Adam and Eve lol

All they've done really is make it possible for Trump to become the Anti Christ if
he chose to. Everything they do empowers him more. It really is phenomenal.

Beyond thenonsense that the Democrats have tried to get Trump with for 3 years, they also have a problem when it comes to the things Trump has NOT done - which he said he would. Trump is able to point very clearly and truthfully to Democrat obstructionism.
Despite everything he's managed to do a good job and I am struggling to see where the Democrats can attack him without it blowing back to them. Hence all they have is 'Vote for anyone but Trump' as a campaign theme.

As to whether the Democrats will be taken seriously ever again - not really. They have failed to even dent Trump's support. He has a higher favourable rating now than when he won the 2016 election.

There is a motion to censure Schiff currently sitting in the Ethics Committee.

The House majority will not allow it to be heard.

I love that we have someone that is changing the trajectory of our nation, and it so happens to be Trump.
I say thank you Trump for having the guts to take on the establishment because they are full of rot and stink!

I was being serious, who is your favorite candidate?

Missed something, I am not trying to look smart, I always have to check my spelling and I suck at typing.

The ethics committee not looking at an ethics violation because of party affiliation?

Of course I do... why don't you?

On balance his Presidency has been a win for our country. He is what we needed after 8 years of Obama and the threat of a Hillary Presidency. After all the BS in the media I don’t even pay attention anymore and frankly if Hillary didn’t get indicted for clear violations why should Trump over made up BS?

As opposed to the "BOMBSHELLS" that turn into duds around here on a near weekly basis?

Sounds like both camps are in the same boat if you ask me.

Instead of "The Little Schiff who cried wolf" it might also be called, "The Little Engine who coup'd".

We in the US have forgotten the art of disagreeing without being disagreeable.

If someone disagrees with you, it doesn't necessarily make them evil. It doesn't necessarily mean they hate you and all you stand for. It means they disagree.

Now don't get me wrong, they could be all those things, but jumping directly to that conclusion from GO is wrong. Listen. Listen to what they have to say. Let them tell you who they are and what they are about. You may find that your goals aren't that far apart and you only disagree on how to achieve them.

There is a difference between hearing someone and listening to someone.

Listen. I mean really LISTEN. It can change your whole perspective...

Same here. I see something that says anything negative against the President, I just roll my eyes and scroll on by. It irritates me like a petulant, lying, manipulative co-worker or neighbor would irritate me. I figure that even if there is a grain of truth to it, it is too blown out of proportion to be useful and any way and the crap that they've dished out more than offsets the karma.

They have accomplished exactly the opposite of what they sat out to do. I am not a big supporter of Donald Trump on a personal level. I am a committed Christian but I am appalled by the way the evangelical community has thrown its weight behind him as if he were the second coming. However, in support of the office and in resistance to the attacks made against it and the complete lack of integrity of the media and the political opposition, he gets my vote for 2020, no questions asked.
