When Republicans failed to deliver for the American people and lost their majority in the United States House of Representatives in 2018, a true poison was unleashed on the nation. Once again, Nancy Pelosi became U.S. Speaker of the House and in her second stint in this position, she has been incredibly damaging to this country.
I am convinced. It is a fact. For those who I call ardent pro-Trumpers, the national GOP and the Republican Congress, facts don't matter in the Donald Trump impeachment probe. It is all about politics.
No matter what the House of Representatives do, no matter what evidence has been or will be uncovered, the probe is not about facts. It is about emotions and partisanship.
The inquiry is not for truth. Truth is irrelevant.
This does not mean that I believe that the Democrats have proven their case. However, I do believe they could and would if Donald Trump allowed the witnesses to testify and the documents to be released.
But, that won't happen. Regardless how we have heard the Fox News bunch call for transparency for the FISA probe, let all the facts come out, that type of talk is all talk when push comes to shove and the probe is on their own.
The Trump impeachment inquiry day one is now history. The hysteria mounts. Tomorrow, part two.
This week, I posted the below items on my Facebook page. The first written Tuesday deals with what I consider to be the real evidence developing in the proceedings that could possibly result in impeachment of President Donald J. Trump, although, obviously, bets are off when it goes to the US Senate. The second post was written minutes after the first impeachment hearing yesterday.
Federalist Society members, led by George Conway III, husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, have condemned Donald Trump’s, purported, assault on the rule of law. It’s a reversal more stunning, even, than the midterm rejection of GOP candidates. Trump, now, finds himself surrounded by predators, the House, the special counsel, wary world leaders, women, youth and, add to the list, conservative intellectuals.
Despite the usual rants from some of the Fox News “yes folks”, and the likes of Rush Limbaugh and others on the right side of Atilla the Hun, the Blue Wave is alive and kicking.
The Democrats have taken over the House of Representatives and could own a roughly 30 seat advantage. While Donald Trump claims he could not be happier for the victory from Tuesday’s vote, it doesn’t take a NASA Rocketeer to know the truth. The president is scared. He is angry. He is fighting back. As being reported, things are so not-A-OK, his administration is throwing grenades at one another. He is insulting the media. Much of the world, including our allies over the past one hundred years (plus Germany), seems to despise him. And possibly worse, he is at the center of a number investigations already and the House of Representatives, soon-to-be-dominated by angry revengeful Democrats, are about to mount an assault from the ground, the air and the water and from outer space (if that’s possible).
Now that the mid terms elections are over, just where exactly is this nation going under President Trump?
That’s what many wanted to know after the blue tsunami turned out to be more of a blue wave, something that the President’s ego could not take.
Instead, at the press conference, he spun, and weaved and deceived and he even almost claimed total victory.
For years the Republican Party has been promising to enact tough border security measures that would stop the flow of illegal immigrants into this country. They have campaigned on funding a border wall, ending “catch and release” policies, putting a halt to chain migration and finally starting to crack down on companies that employ illegal aliens.
No doubt, the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry supports tax reform and, in general, the key legislation coming out of the House of Representatives. Supporting or taking positions on various state and national legislative instruments is what LABI does along with providing other services key to its members and the community.
