The only Hope is Dr. Drew Penske primarying Schiff in Hollywood...

... and in San Fran...just gotta hope the business owners have tired of needles, shiff on their doorsteps and no prosecution of crimes netting under 1k in value.

This is what will happen: nothing.

Nothing except business as usual, Congress gets a fat paycheck and whores itself to lobbyists and special interests at the expense of the United States Taxpayer. A.K.A, business as usual.

Show's over, now eat your bread since you had your circus.

rigged from the git-go !!

Hindsight Folks, Hindsight – Compare the Vindman, Ciaramella, Misko, McCord and Atkinson Network To Pelosi’s Rule Changes…

We can see the basic outline of how a fraudulent impeachment scheme was constructed through an alliance of operatives in the National Security Council (NSC) and staff in the House committees. Our nation is currently dealing with the consequences. However, if we go back to Nancy Pelosi’s December 2018 rule changes, there is clear forethought.

It now looks like the Lawfare network constructed the ‘whistle-blower’ complaint aka a Schiff Dossier, and handed it to allied CIA operative Eric Ciaramella to file as a formal IC complaint. This process is almost identical to the Fusion-GPS/Lawfare network handing the Steele Dossier to the FBI to use as the evidence for the 2016/2017 Russia conspiracy.

I want accountability here as well. Here is my opinion concerning this. Subversives and saboteurs in the democratic party attempted a coup against a duly elected president and committed treason against our government and the nation in the process. It doesn't mater if Trump is vindicated in the end. The treason has been attempted and failed and the conspirators of this coup need to be brought to justice... They need to be hung in the public square.

If they are not publicly held to account for their crimes, IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN.

They go back and try again? Haven't they been saying they'll just do impeachment round two?

I guess they figure they can't pass legislation that makes the base happy that has a prayer of getting past the senate because their base is that insane, so if they keep impeaching, at least it looks like they're doing something.

It's 50/50 odds R's retake the House.

I expect D's to have a scorched earth policy and destroy every bit of their impeachment 'work product'.

If they do lose.

IF they were serious they would have taken time in the courts to get all the witnesses they wanted before starting this fiasco.
But since all they wanted to do was sling mud and hope to get a cheap easy fix to their terrible numbers, no platform that resonates with the majority of voters now its time to pay the band.

That really is a good point.

For years Schiff and Company were so quick to shut down Trump at every turn in the 9th circuit courts.

But they didn't even push for subponeas.

Whats that tell you?

Depends on each Rep's district political leaning .
Heavily Progressive Liberal , Socialist , or Communist ? Dems stay or elected.
Republican , Conservative , True Blue Democrat ? They lose.
It may be a deal better than 50/50 and more like 70/30
Line as I have heard ? The real Democrats are abandoning the party they started...

You know what? I'm going to rant a little here, just to get this all off my chest.

We regularly see examples on the news and even on this board about how police abuse their power because in a split-second, they had to make a life-or-death decision we don't agree with after taking time to consider all the aspects. Yet, when placed in the same position of authority, what do we do? We call for someone to come save us.

There are many who regularly complain about the "good ol' boys" club that protects those in authority. Yet when we are placed in authority, we immediately fall into the exact same "good ol' boys" club.

We do not need some authority to punish Shiff, Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, or anyone else. We are that authority. We, the People of the United States of America, hold the ultimate power over who will speak for us in the highest halls of power. Every two years, we get to tell those same authorities we regularly complain about whether or not they get to stay in authority. We are the boss. We are the authority. These people serve at our pleasure, not us at theirs.

And yet, what do we do with that power? Most ignore it and do not even vote. They sit home, watching TV to let some guy they have never met, living and working hundreds of miles away, who has no earthly idea they even exist, tell them what to think and who is "on their side." They ignore the one thing that really can make a difference because driving a few miles to mark a ballot is less exciting than watching Rachal Maddow or Sean Hannity. Then they excuse their apathetic actions by declaring that "my vote doesn't matter anyway." Of course it doesn't! YOU NEVER USED IT!

By that way of thinking, a hammer doesn't work either... it has to be swung to drive a nail. A chainsaw is useless... it must be used to cut trees. No tool ever imagined by man "matters," because none will work by themselves.

Then, of course, we hear the normal complaints about how the government isn't responsive to their needs. Of course it isn't! YOU NEVER EXPRESSED THOSE NEEDS!

We have others who think their role is cheerleader, not quarterback. They listen to those in the media to learn new ways to debate, new talking points they can use to defeat "the other side" in online virtual battles of witlessness. When the time comes to exercise their authority, to actually make a difference in their lives and correct their grievances, however, they blindly choose the option that has their color on it. "I'm a Democrat!" "I'm a Republican!" That's nice... I am an American.

And it seems there are precious few of us Americans left.

So just once, try something new... go to the polls on voting day,and exercise that authority in the way you choose. Forget what Don Lemon said... he doesn't know you're alive. Ignore Tucker Carlson's advice... you mean nothing to him. Instead, listen to the statements made by your leaders. Do you agree with them? Look at the actions they have taken. Do those actions represent your views? If so, fine, tell them "good job" and vote for them. If not, however, tell them "get out NOW" and vote against them.

And not just the President, the Senate, the House... everyone has more power in their local races, and it is those races that will determine the next crop of politicians in the national races. It is also the decisions made by those in the local races that will affect your life the most.

Be the authority yourself... and stop lying around whining about how someone should go after these fools we all love to hate. Go after them yourself.

YOU, every person reading this, are the ultimate authority... if you will use it wisely. If not, you are the problem.

An audio daily double...

“You got to sweep it under the rug, to forget all about it.”


And it could just as easily be the Democrats that demand retribution for the failure to get Trump by eating their own. Maybe I need to shoot AOC an email just to plant the seed.

I decide who I want to hear from.

I wanted bidon and hunter under oath.
The repubs told me no.

Feels a lot like paying taxes without being represented.

If Dems haven't realized by now that they have been led down the wrong path again and again by their party leaders then they deserve the unprecedented embarrassing loss that they are heading for in NOvember.

If Dems have any chance of saving their party, they better change direction and removing Schiff and Pelosi would be a good start. Maybe they can convince some of their constituents that they aren't complete, corrupt,maniacal, bumbling fools.

Does anyone think they have enough combined intelligence among them all to make a good move?

You are right as usual however, who are we to vote for when incumbents run unopposed, which is often the case?

These career politicians, once entrenched, always have the money to virtually guarantee they will remain in office and unless someone with a huge grass roots following (and lotsa $$) comes along, it's virtually impossible to beat them at the ballot box.

What is the remedy for this? Forced term limits? Not based on elections? Presidents can only serve 2 terms, maybe other elected positions need term limits as well.

Thing is, and this is the funny part, many have realized this. And thats why we now have sanders, cortez, yang, omar, gabbard, and people like them. THEY are the anti-establishment democrats who are the public response to decades of pelosi and her ilk. They are the true progressive and change that is the blowback to the long term, establishment core of the corrupt dnc. And yet, while ya'll ridicule left wingers for not recognizing how corrupt their party is, when a group and shift starts to arise like this, its vehemently attacked by you, the republicans, the establishment dems, the msm and everyone else.

For the first time in many decades there is an ACTUAL left wing representative block existing, not just a warmongering, corporateering, corrupt center right. This is a really good thing, i think, because between this actual left, and the republicans actual right, you will get a real balance. I think this bodes well for the future. Further, if this happens at some point on the right wing, where real conservatives actually wind up showing up in the rnc, rather than warhawk, corporatist, corrupt vultures, Id support the hell out of that too! I loved ron paul, and I'd be all for any new republican candidates that had integrity, wisdom, and actually believed in conservative fiscal policies, real family values like compassion, trust, honesty and humility, and believed in conservative foreign policy like ending wars for profit, dealing with diplomacy and integrity, etc. Dont see that happening now, but hope we can get some of that soon.

A real conservative party balanced by a real progressive party. What a glorious dream! I hope to see it in my lifetime.

Neither of our votes really matter on that front as neither of us live in Schiff’s nor Pelosi’s district. Best we can hope is either those voters have an epiphany or that our elected representatives work to serve justice by making them hit the bricks or at the very least, face the music.

What would be great (a million times better than term limits) was an automatic process to eject those that fail to actually represent their constituents. The people say no and they vote no or they go, simple as that.

As a former Bernie or bust supporter, I can confidently say that Bernie is full of it. He is a grifter and just as full of it as any them. How you can still support that old crank is beyond me but don't try to tell me the guy is in for anything other himself.

Yang is better but it is your Dem party that doesn't give him any chance of ever becoming relevant.

Trump managed to do it despite both sides fighting against him.

Your side hasn't found a fighter like Trump that can outwit or out manuever the swamp.
