Representative Jim Jordan Discusses Midterm Election Result…

Republican Representative Jim Jordan (Ohio) announced today his intention to run for House Minority Leader then the Democrats take control of the House of Representatives in January 2019.  During an interview this afternoon, Rep. Jordan discusses the midterm election result and what can be expected from Democrats in control of committees:

.

Without question, there will be a litany of immediate congressional investigations launched into President Trump, his cabinet and every aspect of his administration.  In close coordination with political allies and members of the Special Counsel, House Democrat leadership have a pre-planned strategy to attack Trump from every angle possible.

There will be no boundaries, and a fully weaponized DC deep state apparatus will work diligently alongside the Democrats to remove President Trump and make his life hell.

  1. And this is what the American people have let our President in for. I am sick at heart. Our President is a resourceful man however and this has not caught him by surprise. Plans have been laid.

        I saw a report that 77% of MSM election coverage was negative towards Trump and Republicans. Only about 2 minutes or less was doesn’t on the economy. That means that many people do not know what’s really going on. In my state 3o% voted for Claire McCaskill. To busy trying to survive or blindly thinking the news is not part of the problem

          Plus the independent conservative social media was shut down. Facebook and Twitter was used to get President Trump elected! There are millions more viewers on Facebook and Twitter than watch any of the news networks. What was a social platform became private publishing. They should be sued for anti-trust.
          The sad story is that the government schools have been very successful in doing their job. What is their job? According to John Taylor Gatto schools now exist to turn out ‘incomplete people who can be managed as human resource’ –in other words, useful idiots. These idiots now gather at Antifa rallies.

          Let me try to suggest a possible alternative view without being overly verbose.

          Partisanship is not new. Nor is the kind of division that we are seeing the worst that has America has ever experienced. That said, let me directly ask how many of you are highly proficient in the sciences, engineering and technology development? I am not just talking about being a farmer, tradesman, accountant, lawyer or business manager who may read about some discovery every so often in the popular press, but bonafide subject matter experts who can understand and actively impact technology development in areas ranging from defense to medicine to manufacturing, transportation and energy. Why this line of questioning? If you can’t truly understand the scientific and engineering basis of the tools of modern society – tools that are neutral morally until people use them – how can you hope to compete with let alone overcome them? While the social science and humanities are parasites that have destroyed the academy, the fundamental discoveries coming from the engineering and science departments of American universities is truly astounding, both in scope and impact. That national R&D enterprise is now integral to both the development of new technologies in IT, biotech, energy, health, manufacturing and transportation sectors and the economic health of our nation. Yet, how many of you can only talk about the Founding Fathers without being able to make an argument in terms relevant to the America we live in today? How many of you, for example, talk of online privacy without knowing anything about network architecture, cybersecurity, IoT or blockchain technology? While you assume that a great number of those you are calling ‘dumb’ have never even been exposed to the fundamental principles of American civics and market economies, those same people may look at your arguments as irrelevant in light of their daily experiences with pervasive technologies. And do not kid yourselves about the impact of these technologies: they are seriously impacting the neurobiology of youth and adults alike, changing things like brain plasticity, language skills, memory and learning ability. Said more bluntly, you don’t speak their language anymore, if for no other reason because you likely can’t.

          I am not proposing any solutions at this point. But I am at least suggesting that simply calling our political opponents ‘dumb’ overlooks a lot more than I think many here are willing to acknowledge.

            In this case the other person truly had no idea who Maxine Waters is so that’s why I thought she’s uninformed – probably too busy in her normal life to pay attention to this but the negative meme about Trump is so prevalent that she’s definitely heard bad info about him. It’s quite popular to hate Trump especially for educated people…they’ve been told over and over that as a group they don’t like him.

            Okay, nuance: The best of our political opponents are dumb — that is, either stupid or willfully ignorant. Their leadership are evil,bent on using dumb to destroy our country.

            As to the manifold technological achievements you cite, most people DON’T need to know much about them beyond the products they enable. We’ve gotten along fine with the automobile for over a century yet it hasn’t been true in many decades that most people could sketch the inside of a modern V8, let alone discuss details of a carburetor or fuel injection system.

            What we do need is a substantial number of honorable people among those who know/can do those things to advise us and THAT has changed. Compare Ford, GM, Chrysler, etc. to Google, Facebook, Apple … What we’ve got is the equivalent of Ford telling us that what’s under the hood is none of our f’ing business and they’ll see that we can’t drive THEIR product anywhere that the government doesn’t approve.

            Of course we may get literally that in just a few years … but the technology industry is pioneering it with efforts to stop ‘fake’ — i.e. pro conservative or pro Trump — news.

      SD is absolutely right but getting Jim Jordan to become the House Minority Leader will be HUGE because he will join Devin Nunes on the Gang of Eight. They can do everything they want over the next two years. Our President showed them today and will continue to do so over the next few days (others will be resigning {Wray, Rosenstein, Boente etc.}) that he has the ABSOLUTE POWER with a new AG and others that will be new in the DOJ and FBI to have actual indictments for each and everyone involved in the Soft Coup. Including members of Congress on the Democrat side (Schiff, Warner, Feinstein etc.).

      If this is a game of tit for tat, they will get the Atomic Sledgehammer of Truth dropped on all their heads.

      Lindsey Graham is licking his chops when he takes over the Chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee in early January. Payback for what they did to Judge Kavanaugh is going to be a bitch.

      Also, Democrats are going to have an angry 😡 electorate demanding they work with our President to develop a Healthcare Plan (Obamacare will be in the trash 🗑 bin in over a month) and Dreamers will be burning their houses down as soon as the SC revokes DACA once and fore all.

      I wrote this earlier today:

      From the thread above:

      If they are dumb enough to have investigation after investigation, it will come at their own demise in 2020 when our President will be on the ticket in all 50 states. There are far more Moderate Democrats (especially those that won in Red Districts) that know that if they only resist, their tenure will be short lived.

      The Democrats worse nightmare is about to punch them squarely in the mouth! The DOJ has recently asked the Supreme Court to take up the issue with DACA before the Appellate Courts come back. At some point in time, that will absolutely occur. Hopefully sooner rather than later. DACA will be thrown in the trash bin with a 5-4 vote.

      https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/11/05/daca-justice-department-asks-supreme-court-consider-ending-program/1836235002/

      From the article linked above:

      The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court Monday to consider President Donald Trump’s plan to end an Obama administration program that protects undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

      The request for the high court to intervene in three cases from California, New York and the District of Columbia came even as a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit was expected to render its verdict on the plan soon. Its decision would follow a federal district judge’s decision in January that Trump lacked the authority to eliminate the program.

      The other exciting thing is that a Federal Judge in Texas has Obamacare’s fate in his hand. If and when he rules, you can kiss Obamacare goodbye immediately. Eventually the Supreme Court will have its say and it will be tossed in a 5-4 decision (don’t worry about Roberts because his decision years ago was all based on the Individual Mandate which is now gone and the reason we will get rid of Obamacare).

      From the article linked above:

      Judge Reed O’Connor, of the United States District Court in Fort Worth, heard oral arguments in a multistate, Republican-led lawsuit to destroy the Affordable
      13) Care Act, including key provisions aimed at protecting coverage for patients with pre-existing conditions. If the judge finds the states’ position persuasive — and he has given some indications in hearings that he does — he can invalidate the whole law.

I truly believe John James will be the Republican running against the Incumbent.

      We know what to expect. Established Republicans obstructed crucial issues, immigration, the wall, and most of all Obamacare. These Republican carpetbaggers were much worse than the Dem’s because they promised to support these policies and lied to their voters about it. The Democrats are expected to lie about, well, anything. If they would have supported the repeal of Obama care? The House would still be under Republican rule. Nothing has changed, the squeakiest wheels will still be squeaking, with no more accomplished than they failed to accomplish the last 2 years.

I’m afraid that it’s turning blue in 2 years since 60% of people foolishly voted to restore felons’ rights to vote and they will be voting for the demoncrats.

                People are just clueless. Two years ago, people voted for a 1 cent increase in the sales tax, for “infrastructure”. A Tea Party analyst, who was skilled in analyzing public expenditures, ran the figures and estimated that only 35% of the revenues were needed for said “infrastructure”, and the rest was slush fund. People voted for it anyway. Nobody is tracking where the $ are going.

                Then, there was a “school funding” increase on the ballot yesterday. No one has actually broken down the expenses, and we have poor academic performance from these schools….But it passed, while every bit of money is wasted and little of it gets to the classroom.

                People are dumb, and not just in FL. Like GA, where I heard that Abrams cow say that she never realized that government borrowing had to be paid back! SMDH….

    If the Dems do what SD said, it’s time to bring it to another level, because the DS’s mission is clearly stated in Plouffe’s Tweet:

    1. “He must be destroyed, thoroughly.”

    2. “His kind must NOT rise AGAIN.”

    An argument can be made that those are fighting words that meet the legal definition of “fighting words”. In which case self defense is merited.

    If Plouffe and his ilk attempt to “destroy, thoroughly” Donald Trump, so that he does “His kind does NOT rise AGAIN”, then it’s time to destroy those who would destroy Trump and by extension, America.

    “Destroy” means whatever it takes to make sure Plouffe and “his kind do not rise again”. The phrase “do not rise again” implies a permanent state of not rising again.

    The Declaration says it’s our duty and right to throw off a government that’s become rogue and turned against us. When a political operative and strategist says a political opponent must be so “thoroughly destroyed” that he, and by extension his followers and their beliefs, “must not rise again”, it means the government has turned against us.

    That’s why the Second Amendment exists. It ain’t there in case the deer turn against us. The time to use the Second Amendment as the Founders envisioned it, as expressed in their dicta and comments, is fast coming upon us.

    When the Second Amendment is used for it’s intended purpose, the DS will come down with the death penalty on whoever survives and whoever they catch. Freedom is never free and the price of fighting for it will now be – here in America – what it’s always been in communist dictatorships. If one survives the fight, they can expect arrest, a sham trial, and a long prison sentence, if not a death sentence.

    Freedom isn’t free. It costs something.

    How much are you willing to pay to be free from the America the Democrats envision? A land where Sharia dominates over the Constitution. Where there’s Islamic no-go zones in the cities, the towns, and the bucolic pastoral villages, like Rutland, VT. Where antifa and Islamic terrorists beat, stab, burn, and rape whites and everyone not antifa or Muslim. A country without anyh borders, and where every illegal from every poophole country is welcomed, put on welfare from day one, and has the right to vote on day two. A land where the Freedom of Religion is reduced to freedom to go to church. Where Christians are mocked, ridiculed, and excluded from society, as the Jews were in 1930’s Germany; before they were systemically slaughtered like animals.

    American patriots need to have a conversation on what cost they’re willing to bear.

    Thots For Me And You
    —————————-
    What cost are you willing to bear?

    Are you willing to bear arms to fight for the America we once had?

      You haven’t thought this through completely.
      There’s a math problem in your thinking (us vs them), as well as a battle strategy assumption that hasn’t existed since, maybe, Korea.
      When the big dance starts LEOs/Emergency first responders/etc. will be protecting their families and deep state cowards will slip into the woodwork. “Gaming” estimates of military participation in action against US citizens are variable. But, I can assure you that Team Blue won’t be placing any Craigslist ads for fighting gigs. One of the first things that will go will be the cell towers, consumer comms, and power substations. Betas like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page will pretty much be out of action before that point.

      It would be asymmetrical warfare more ugly than you can possibly imagine. Heads might explode on whatever fool was in a visible location in an urban area doing selfies courtesy of a 250 grain soft tip match boattail fired 1200 meters away at almost 3200 ft/sec.

      Ask yourself how successful our military were in Vietnam or have been in Afghanistan against insurgents with a mission in mind.
      Ask yourself how insurgents operated in places such as Cambodia.
      Ask yourself how iron age morons with an IQ of 70 equipped with 1940 Enfield 303’s, M44 Mosin Nagants, a hand woven wool blanket and a chunk of Mylar and a can of shaving cream can evade the best military NV technology flying around those great sandbox vacation spots.

      Combine that with the best episodes of The Walking Dead, meaning the savagery of Negan’s group, and you’ll start to get the impression of what will happen.

      My best offering to these sorts of “call to arms” is to be careful what you wish for, and stay away from crowds when it happens.

              I haven’t said much over the past two days, to anybody, about politics. But I have a hunch…so I’m going out on my little limb here.

              I think it was the plan.

              President Trump knows history very well. I have heard and read many comments over the past two days lamenting the lack of a “red wave.” I think we had one. We just didn’t have a tsunami. That is what would have been required to overcome history. The first mid-term of a sitting President is almost always a shellacking. But not in this case. The House was lost, but the Senate gained seats. Unheard of.

              Our President warned us as best he could, without making it hopeless. He couldn’t after all come right out and say ‘folks, we’re gonna lose the House,’ but he did gently allude to that many times.

              Knowing this was likely, if not inevitable, our VSG made a plan. He knew he had to keep the Senate. That is his armor against the impeachment idiocy. He also knew he would be able to fire Sessions (with or without Sessions cooperation; for me, the jury is still out on that one), and get a new AG confirmed, which would start the ball rolling on the end of the Mueller investigation. The President also knows that RBG is on her way out. For any President who is hoping to change America in a generational sense, the Supreme Court is the holy grail. So far, our President is averaging a Justice a year. Hence the campaign to hold and increase the margin in the Senate. Worked like a charm.

              Yesterday, PDJT put the press on notice that he will not be putting up with their nonsense anymore. He doesn’t have to. For any student of history, his results in the mid-terms were a stunning affirmation of his popularity with Americans. The 2020 election will be a blow-out. Remember, the brawler is who we elected the first time. We love him. When he slaps the pressitutes down, we cheer.

              The left is screwed and they know it. Expect a full-on frontal assault on our President. He can handle it. I think he relishes the battle. Warriors usually do.

                “Additionally, and perhaps more to the point, Trump will now face enjoy two years of investigations into some of the craziest and most bizarre conspiracy theories around. Or as we put it in yesterday’s Politics, Et Cetera:

                In addition to Speaker Pelosi, a Democratic House will feature a cast of characters certain to make things difficult for President Trump and, at the same, almost unbearable for average Americans….

                In short, then, the next two years of Democratic control of the House will be a complete circus. And because the folks in the mainstream media can’t control themselves, they’ll cover the circus and nothing but the circus, not even trying to hide their own clown noses and their own deep desire to be part of the circus.”

    I’m so proud of this president. The press had been doing suppression polls and trying to pump up a blue wave for a year. He singlehandedly and tirelessly campaigned with virtually no help and made the blue wave a puddle. Now he’s forcing the news cycle to move past gloating over their small gains with this move of firing Sessions. He’s a boss, a titan. I love him. He’s the greatest warrior we’ve ever had. I remember how lame that other titan, Ronald Reagan’s attempts were to plead for a Republican Congress. He never got out and campaigned for it. So Trump may even surpass Reagan in the end. I’m proud of him. I know we wanted even more miracles, but I’m grateful to finally have someone who gives every ounce of his effort to the fight and then even more.

    Listening to karl Rove today it dawned on me that the GOPe is really happy with the election. This is what they wanted. They kept the Senate and lost the house. They can continue to add judges and will let the dems take the blame for shutting down the nationalistic agenda. Bonus too… the house will make life hell for Trump with a witch hunt with no boundaries.

      President Trump did say today that other than winning the House, strategically having a very fractured House led by the opposition might be an advantage, because if they act stupidly, he will just blame them during the election starting next year.

      It really does make sense.

      Also, i am not really sure how PT needs the House for the wall and a few other items? I would think there are other, out of the box ways to fund policies and circumvent Nancy.

    Acting Attorney General Whitaker is now in charge of all matters under the purview of the DOJ.

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is no longer overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election meddling. Whitaker will now oversee the investigation.

    In a 2017 opinion piece, Whitaker called for Mueller to “limit the scope of his investigation.”

    A while back I read an article which, if I understood it correctly, indicated that there is a lawsuit winding its way through the court system which would make things interesting for the spawns of Satan. Its basis is that unlike Whitaker, Rosenswine was never APPOINTED to the position of ACTING AG and thus lacked the authority to appoint Mueller. The lawsuit has made its way through the lower courts without getting tossed and it is next to be heard by whoever replaces Kavanaugh in the DC court. If the lawsuit prevails Mueller gets dumped. I’m not a drinking woman but I would definitely lift a glass on that one

    CNN, in their infinite wisdom, issued this statement:
    This President’s ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far. (We can live over the edge, say what we want, and be total jackasses). They are not only dangerous, they are disturbingly un-American. (Now I must admit—that statement is true, but of Acosta’s and his fellow CNN idiots, NOT President TRUMP). While President Trump has made clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it. (Fallacy in this sentence is the 12th word. Free does not mean totally biased against the President. Mr. Trump would and does protect honest journalists, not those whose should purpose is to demean, ridicule and harass him. Acosta is not a journalist, he’s a jerk!). A free press is vital to democracy, and we stand behind Jim Acosta and his fellow journalists everywhere. (Take note CNN—you said vital to democracy, not to the Democrat Party. Obviously your allegiances are to the the Democrat Party which has NOTHING to do with DEMOCRACY! Acosta has been a pluperfect jerk on multiple occasions. He, as well as the vast majority of the commentators on your air, lean so far left I suspect the CNN Tower bears a strange resemblance to a certain tower in Pisa!)

    We do need a free, fair and honest press. I will take your blathering seriously when you locate your first member for that group. I remember when CNN first came on the air. There was a fair and honest presentation of the news. You are in your fourth decade as a(n alleged) news agency. Unfortunately, each succeeding decade has been a degradation of fairness, honesty and NEWS. Until you clean up your act, you will always be known for your FAKE NEWS!!

If the uniparty corrupt pubs were not a wholly owned subsidiary of Tom Donohole, they would boot Ryan and pass tons of needed MAGA legislation between now and Jan 20. They could be sending legislation to the Senate to be taken up after Jan. 20. They won’t do anything between now and Jan. 20 because it helps the uniparty agenda. The dims w/Nancy P and the commie propaganda DNC media will be hell bent on making Trump’s life and anyone supporting him hell.That will be the focus of the next 2 yrs. The media will cover for them.

Wasn’t that often but 20 dubloons in the 80’s was just that. Especially in our neighborhood. OZ Park was tight as teeth in those days, still is from what we hear. We all became experts spotting unmarked gumint vehicles. We were always checked by someone who’d grudgingly walk with you. Aside from all of what’s known, much of it probably half true JG was a stand up guy as were most who hung around 98-04 101 Av. Always took care of the neighborhood even though he lived in Howard Beach.

    Fellow refugees,

    If you remember, last summer allegations surfaced that Jim Jordan, when assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State, ignored the sexual abuse of college wrestlers by their team doctor.
    That news spurred me to remind folks of Jordan’s record as US Congressman and write this……..

    Jim Jordan’s Dirty Little Secret

    No –it’s not the recent accusation of immoral behavior when he was a college wrestling coach to which I refer. This dirty secret is much more recent, and politically speaking, far more dangerous to us than allegations of him concealing sexual assault of college wrestlers when an OSU college coach. Jordan’s immoral actions occurred in 2013, 2015 and 2017. Please let me explain.

    Last week I received an email from Tea Party Patriots defending Jim Jordan. TPP asked us to support Jordan against these charges.
    First, however, we need a brief review of how the US Congress works– in particular, the role of the Speaker of the House……
    One of the duties of The Speaker is to set the House legislative agenda. The Speaker determines which legislation reaches the House floor for a vote. In other words, The Speaker of the House controls all legislation passing through Congress. .
    As you know, in October 2015, Speaker of the House, John Boehner, resigned in disgrace. Boehner lost the Speakership, not because he was voted out by House GOP members, but because of pressure put on Congress by frustrated constituents and Tea Party groups across the nation—Republicans and conservative Americans angry with their representatives that they were not doing what they were elected for- upholding conservatism!
    Before 2015 however, steps to remove Boehner were beginning to take shape.
    In January 2013, several House members- not including Jim Jordan- but Louie Gohmert, Justin Amash, Tim Huelskamp, and Thomas Massie, led an insurrection to oust Boehner. Shockingly, neither Jim Jordan nor Michele Bachmann, both who had campaigned as Tea Party candidates, would join the effort– even after Tea Party groups from Cincinnati to Toledo, Dayton to Akron –and conservatives all over Ohio begged them to do so. Over a period of 2 weeks, literally hundreds of phone calls were made and emails were sent to Congress. I know- I was a part of it! Even national conservative blogger and radio host, Erick Erickson from RedState, was involved. In January 2013, John Boehner would have been replaced by a conservative Speaker, but for the lack of 2 Republican votes- shamefully 2 Ohio Republicans– Jim Jordan and Brad Wenstrup. Jordan and Wenstrup failed as conservatives, supported Boehner, and he was re-elected. To this day I still scratch my head and ask– Why did Jordan support Boehner?! He knew Boehner’s horrendous record: making back-room deals with Pelosi, stonewalling the Benghazi investigation, refusing to defund Planned Parenthood, and even threatening to redistrict Jordan over his opposition to the 2011 budget deal. How can this be the same Jim Jordan who fought so adamantly for conservatism in 2011?!
    In January 2015, with the anti-Boehner movement gaining momentum, those same 4 congressmen- Gohmert, Amash, Huelskamp, Massie- plus 21 others, led an even greater effort to oust Boehner. Both Jim Jordan and Michelle Bachmann however, sucker punched conservatives again, and supported Boehner for Speaker!
    So in September 2015, after our RINO congressmen refused twice to do it, a citizen revolt finally forced Speaker Boehner to resign. With Boehner gone, Jim Jordan was granted a third opportunity to redeem himself, when a brave conservative, Daniel Webster, volunteered as candidate for Speaker. Jordan could have joined the effort, but again, he refused. He instead supported Boehner’s clone, Paul Ryan! And in January 2017, Jordan stabbed us in the back for the fourth time, again supporting Paul Ryan! There is no doubt in my mind- Jim Jordan is not just a member of the DC Swamp, he’s fertilizing it!
    So if all legislation introduced in Congress is controlled by the Speaker, and Jim Jordan has a history of supporting dishonorable, liberal Speakers, how can Jim Jordan be a conservative? What credibility does he have if he tells us he voted against a bad bill, when he supported the liberal who controls all legislation to be voted on?!! So the next time your GOP Congressman brags about his ‘conservative’ voting record, just remember this– it means squat. The most important vote he makes is his vote for Speaker of the House!
    Personally, Jim Jordan’s guilt or innocence of ignoring sexual abuse against college wrestlers concerns me not. His actions in Congress for the past 5 years show his true character– a liar, a coward, who should never be re-elected. Which makes me ask: Why are the Tea Party Patriots still supporting him?!!

    I can’t say that I’m not depressed, but it’s not the depression that I had in 2008 where I literally watched only black & white movies on TCM for six straight years, no news, nothing. Didn’t have the stomach for it.

    This is the kind of depression that is caused by the knowledge that we literally have to allow Democrats to have some power -AGAIN- for the next two years to wake up the thick headed in this country, AGAIN. We literally have to let the next two years be so bad, so stupid, so evil that even the comfortably smug say to themselves, “this is horse sh!t” just to get them out of their house for 30 minutes to go a frickin’ polling station to vote for Republicans.

    I avoided the news channels last night and followed the results on Twitter. It was better that way. I was watching The Best Years of Our Lives on, of course, TCM. Homer is a Navy vet who lost both hands when his ship was blown up, Al’s a banker who enlisted and became an Army platoon sergeant, and Fred is a guy from the wrong side of the tracks who became a heavily decorated pilot in the Air Force. After being away from their families for years, they all finally make it home. Watching the approach of their hometown in a repurposed bomber, they start recognizing the local landmarks. Fred says, “Gee, there’s the golf course. People playing golf just as if nothing ever happened.” That scene sticks with me. That was a World War. Part of the world launched a war machine that was literally killing millions of people and came close to taking over several continents. Yet life went on as usual in America, other than a few inconveniences.

    And so it goes today. We have to go to war at home to wake people up because it’s gotten too comfortable, especially with the economy firing up. We have to let the Democrats do some damage to get thru to the sane-yet-lazy part of the population. The ones who didn’t vote yesterday.

    i am 2018 depressed.

This was overshadowed by the press who came with their prewritten harangues thinly disguised as questions. If the Dems have a shred of intelligence left (dubious) they will realize they have to work with Trump if they hope to accomplish anything before 2020.

    that will affect our country for decades. Our country is based on law and judges rulings are the only thing that can turn us back in the right direction. A strong republican senate allows PDJT to nominate judges that will uphold our constitution, with a good chance of having them confirmed.
    I also believe the big reason for the coup against PDJT was based on his ability to nominate.
    Think what would have happened if hillary had won! We should thank God. Losing the house
    was a disgrace and shows we need to somehow control who and how much money can be spent

They will have the help of the media in this endeavor. If bogus charges are brought, and somehow upheld, that will be the end of the Republic as we know it.
