Give it time. The democratic party is in flux, and i expect there will be great changes in both the RNC and DNC as people are growing more active and recognizing the game thats been status quo for some time, and finding new ways to combat it. We are seeing more grassroots growing, and quickly.

You dont believe in sanders anymore, thats fine. But he's redefined the democratic platform in a drastic way, in a way that resonates with many people from different ideological groups. Hes literally trying to buck the system that you all criticize so much by using the dem platform against itself, and is showing, like trump, that independents can ram themselves through the establishment with the peoples support. What we are seeing, with the last election and this one, is the collapse of the establishments deadlock on control. Its pretty glorious.

Last time nobody thought trump or sanders would get any traction, and they wound up both being serious contenders. It opened the door to chance. I am happy with sanders chances this round. I dont demand he win, I'm happy enough that he does, in fact, have a fighting chance.

Not only rock solid, but so URGENT that they bypassed going to the Judicial branch to subpoena witnesses. They needed to remove Trump IMMEDIATELY. So why are they crying to the Senate to do the very thing they claimed would take them too long? Because it gives them one more thing to wail about for the TV cameras and their gullible base. That's all.

If Dems haven't realized by now that they have been led down the wrong path again and again by their party dealers 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?


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.


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.


And to be clear, I dont have a side. I have no particular party affiliation, and i dont really see the republican or democratic establishment as better or worse, or even terribly different, than each other. I find them both to be roadblocks to progress and actual representation, and anything that shakes that up, including trump, i find preferable to their preferred candidates. I encouraged friends and family to vote for trump over clinton last cycle. I voted for ron paul. And i will also vote for sanders. Because im not a partisan hack. Honestly, i feel that anyone who says "blue or bust" or "I will never vote democrat again" lack the objectivity to see past their own prejudices. I dont vote democrat or republican, I vote for the candidates and their platforms or issues.

I , the american citizen wanted to hear from everyone, bidon, shiff, hunter, bolton, mulvany.

But they decided I didn't need to hear it all.



Well you're not being very fair, but then you're a Democrat, right???...Schiff says no witnesses will be allowed that the Republicans want...No Bidens, no whistleblower, none of the 18 Dem witnesses that the Democrats quizzed in the House proceedings...

But I think you were going to vote straight Democrat anyway...

You should vote straight ticket Republican then. The Democrats had the opportunity to call all these people in the House, and if the Administration resisted, resolve it in court. Instead, they blatantly lied and said they couldn't do that because it was urgent to get the impeachment done ASAP, which became obviously false when Pelosi held the Articles. They knew the Republicans wouldn't support witnesses in the Senate, and that's exactly what they wanted so they could trick people like you into voting for them. They didn't want witnesses because that would destroy Biden for the general election. So congrats, you've been lied to and manipulated into voting exactly how they want.

The whole impeachment process was a scam by Schiff/Pelosi/Nadler and the democrat/never trumper group.

In the end they did the right thing, get back to the people's work. Besides they need to get ready for a wave of indictments to come from John Durham, it's been slow motion but they are coming.

How could anyone still support Bernie when he wont even denounce the violent, crazies he employs on his campaign staff?

The guy is an old, incompetent, grifter and grouch....He should retire to his rocking chair on his front porch and yell at the neighborhood kids to get off his lawn.

Because plenty of us don’t waste our time focusing on the media circus du jour. who cares what some stupid staffer said? Other than you, apparently. I never paid attention to the sideline crap of “show us his birth certificate!!!” Or “where’s his tax returns?!” Or “look at all his racist, neo nazi supporters!!” Either. Because they are non issues that have no bearing on the person they are trying to attack. Learn to recognize the msm and establishments attempts at distraction, lies, and deceit. Don’t let tptb dictate your focus.

Then why didnt the House call them when they had the chance, as is their job in this matter? Why did they hide in the basement for weeks with secret testimony being given?

oh the dems wont give it up they are still going on about the ukraine situation but over the newly "discovered" emails that are being held back under presidental privilege (whos case law is much more clear and on his side) www.stripes.com...

The Department of Justice filed a response to a lawsuit seeking access to unredacted copies of those communications. Heather Walsh, a lawyer for the Office of Management and Budget, wrote to the court that 24 of those emails were protected under "presidential privilege." "Specifically, the documents in this category are emails that reflect communications by either the President, the Vice President, or the President's immediate advisors regarding Presidential decision-making about the scope, duration, and purpose of the hold on military assistance to Ukraine," Walsh wrote.
and then this


Why Trump wanted Congress-approved assistance to Ukraine delayed is the central question of his impeachment and was the greatest point of tension in the Senate trial. Many of the witnesses who did testify in the House impeachment investigation hadn't been given an official reason. William Taylor, the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, recalled during his Oct. 22 deposition that he learned of the hold during a July 18 conference call, when an OMB aide said the security assistance was being held but couldn't say why.


so at least this one covered the witnesses that did talk in the house and that none of them had first hand knowlge of to trumps intentions id imagine this will be the next phase of the dems trying to go after trump again as they have since he won the 2016 election

I think the Dems made such a weak case knowing the Senate would refuse additions precisely because it was the only play they had left to fire up the undecided voter in view of the upcoming election.

Complain about something that, on the face of it, and with no real explanation, just seems wrong-NO WITNESSES! HOW CAN THEY DO THAT!!!

It was a hail mary in the hopes of inflaming anti-Trump hatred but I feel they have badly misjudged the intelligence of the average voter.

You can't just make up the bloody rules as you go along Dems, we will see where this road takes you, nowhere good I fear.

You're exactly right, and as you can see from one of the posters on this page, it worked like a charm. Gullible people fell for it.

Dems would have no supporters at all if they relied on the truth to garner support. In fact, it's just the opposite, the Dems rely on the uneducated, ignorant and easily manipulated among us for their voter base.

Have you ever had a debate with a Democrat who didn't reply with the "talking points" that every single Dem operative on CNN and MSNBC (along with every Twitter operative) hasn't repeated 1000 times?

I'm sorry, but the average person who still defends the Dems after all the missteps they've made lately is not much smarter than a parrot. Repeating the words they've heard so many times, but never having an articulated thought or idea of their own.

Watch the notes that go with the votes. They will all say Trump is guilty but it's not worthy of removing him from office.
